During 20X5, XYZ Ltd. purchased for cash all of the 100,000 Class B shares of Sub Limited. Each share carries one vote. The previous owner, Mr. Bill, retained all 20,000 outstanding Class A shares of Sub Limited, each carrying four votes. To avoid sudden changes, Mr. Bill stipulated in the sale agreement that he was to retain the right to refuse the appointment of management for Sub Limited and to approve any significant transactions of Sub Limited.
Should XYZ Ltd. consolidate the operations of Sub Limited in its 20X5 financial statements, which are to be issued in accordance with IFRS? Provide support for your recommendation.
