    A finite permutation group is said to be innately transitive if it contains a transitive minimal normal subgroup. In this paper, we give a characterisation and structure theorem for the finite innately transitive groups, as well as describing those innately transitive groups which preserve a product decomposition. The class of innately transitive groups contains all primitive and quasiprimitive groups.
