Definition of Subsidiaries

Businesses classified as subsidiaries are those that are owned or managed by the parent firm of another company.

Subsidiaries are any commercial ventures that are associated with the parent firm in some way, such as through branding, product offers, or shared resources, in the context of a website.

Companies should have subsidiaries because they can help them expand into new markets and boost their position in existing ones.
