1. For the purposes of these Rules, the relevant definition of a Holding CompanyG is found in the DIFC Companies LawG . That definition provides when one body corporateG is considered to be a holding companyG or a subsidiary of another body corporateG and extends that concept to the ultimate holding company of the body corporateG .
2. Pursuant to Rule 8.1.2(1)(c), a Person becomes a Controller if that Person can exert significant management influence over an Authorised Market InstitutionG . The ability to exert significant management influence can arise even where a Person, alone or with Associates, controls less than 10% of the shares or voting rights of the Authorised Market InstitutionG or a Holding CompanyG of that institution. Similarly, a PersonG may be able to exert significant management influence where such Person does not hold shares or voting rights but has exercisable rights to acquire shares or voting rights, such as under OptionsG .
