Which companies are considered principals?

A company is a principal either because it is a general partner of a partnership or based on its ownership or financial stake in a registrant. Unlike individuals, a company's status as a principal based on ownership or capital contribution is determined solely by its direct relationship with the registrant. Holding companies that directly own 10% or more of a class of a registrant's stock or directly contribute 10% of a registrant's capital are principals of the registrant. In contrast, a holding company that indirectly owns a registrant's stock or contributes capital is not a principal. More information can be found at Principal under the registration menu.
