family-owned [family-held] public limited company [stock corporation] (Familien-AG)
Explanation:
A type of public limited company (BE) or stock corporation (AE) whose shares are all held by the members of one (or even more) families - basically an over-sized family business.

To avoid confusion with regard to its legal nature, I would add the proper German term in brackets.
