A Wholly owned subsidiary company is a company whose common stock is 100% owned by another company (Parent Company).

When a company owns

  1. Minority stake i.e., less than 50% in another company then that company is an associate/affiliate company to the stake-holding company.
  2. When a company holds majority stake I.e., more than 50% than that company is a subsidiary to the stake-holding company. But
  3. When a company owns 100% stake in another company than that company is a wholly owned subsidiary to the stake-holding company.

I would like to discuss:

A wholly owned subsidiary company can be formed through

  1. Acquisition;
  2. Greenfield investment;
  3. Brownfield investment. A wholly owned subsidiary company can be a consolidated subsidiary or An Unconsolidated subsidiary to the parent company.
