Article 3.3
(2.3.3 Am I a linked enterprise? (Art. 3.3))

This type of relationship corresponds to the economic situation of enterprises which form a group through the direct or indirect control of the majority of voting rights of an enterprise by another or through the ability to exercise a dominant influence on an enterprise. Such cases are, thus, less frequent than the two preceding types.


Two or more enterprises are linked when they have any of the following relationships:

– One enterprise holds a majority of the shareholders’ or members’ voting rights in another.

– One enterprise is entitled to appoint or remove a majority of the administrative, management or supervisory body of another.

– A contract between the enterprises, or a provision in the memorandum or articles of association of one of the enterprises, enables one to exercise a dominant influence over the other.

– One enterprise is able, by agreement, to exercise sole control over a majority of shareholders’ or members’ voting rights in another.

A typical example of a linked enterprise is the wholly-owned subsidiary.
