Controlling interest

a legal controlling interest in a company's shares would be 50% plus one share. In practice, however, a controlling interest might represent a much smaller portion of shares because:
  1. not every shareholder who is qualified actively votes;
  2. some shares carry more than one vote, a situation that varies from one company to another.
