Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Shareholders usually are usually not much worried about liabilities in an organization especially if it has a limited liability. This is so because the shareholders are protected in this case such that their resources cannot be taken in a case of a huge debt. However, if the company has unlimited liability, then the shareholders treat liabilities as a threat to their investments.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
