Encyclopedia > Controlling interest

Controlling interest is to have control of a large enough portion of voting stock in a company such that no other stock holder can oppose you. In theory this means that controlling interest is 50% of the voting stock plus one. In practice, though, controlling interest can be far less than that, as it is rare that 100% of a company's voting shareholders actively vote.
