Control of a corporation generally exists by reason of holding more than 50% of voting power. This is called – de jure control.
The concept of control also includes what is often referred to as de facto control. An example of de facto control might be a situation where a person holds 50% or less than 50% of the voting power of a corporation but hold enough “other influence” (loan, technology etc agreements) so that they could force the corporation to act in accordance with his or her wishes.
