When a company goes public , not 100 % of the property must be sold or transferred to any person or other legal entity ? or can the company maintain the 51% or some other percentage ?

( In other words , you can go to a public company, but only sells part of itself? Or should there be a separate entitiy as a holding company which owns the rest of the company? )

When a company makes a repurchase of shares what they have to "opt out" of the shares, or may keep them as if they were buying shares of another company ?

Most importantly, where I can search to see if 100% of a company listed on the market, or if a fraction is held by a holding or insider (if applicable) by the company itself ?
