A company is connected with another company
- if the same person has control of both, or a person has control of one and persons connected with him (or he and persons connected with him) have control of the other, or
- if a group of two or more persons have control of each company, and the groups either consist of the same persons or could be regarded as consisting of the same persons by treating (in one or more cases) a member of either group as replaced by a person with whom he is connected.
