Abstract

Our empirical study of 246 Directors, financial executives, accountants and credit/security analysts explore the concept of firm strategic control and what theoretically developed attributes contribute to an entity having strategic control over another. Our results suggest that strategic control is established with 100 per cent ownership but where there is less than 60-64% ownership then other strategic control attributes are necessary. Our results delve into what combinations of Direct ownership, indirect ownership, dispersion and Board of Director representation are required for strategic control.
