What percent of the Intermediary company (holding 90% of the Primary company) should Person 1, 3, and 4, hold so their holdings equal 70% of Primary company (for Person 1) and 10% of Primary company (for Persons 3 and 4)?

Thanks!

I think that makes it easier to see.

So 70% of 90 = 77.78, and the remaining amount is 22.22 (100 - 77.78), so 11.11% for each of the two other owners, right?

So, yes, they need 77.78%, 11.11%, and 11.11% of the secondary company in order to have 70%, 10%, and 10% of the primary company.
