    say-so = consent ?

    "You cannot issue more shares without the sharehoders' say-so". I can work out the meaning of "say-so" in the context to be "consent", but I've never seen it used like this before. Is "say-so" a new usage?

    No, it's not new. But it's very informal. It would be rare to find it in writing in a context such as you've given.
