Controlling Interest

Controlling interest is when you own a large enough share of a firm, generally more than 50%, to exercise control over its management. It is not recommended for a company to have two equal owners who each own 50% of the firm, since not knowing who has the controlling interest makes it impossible to determine who has the deciding vote in case of a disagreement.
