H-form

H-form

a form of company structure in which constituent companies are completely or partially owned by a HOLDING COMPANY. Generally such structures arise out of merger or acquisition activity. The product range, production facilities and management structures are often left largely unchanged, and constituent companies can thus be said to be undigested. Little direct control is exercised by the holding company other than receipt of profits. The absence of central direction is often contrasted with that in the M-form company but in so far as the holding company confines itself to acquisitions, divestment and simple financial control it could be said to be a ‘pure’ form of the latter. H-form companies were at one time a common feature of UK industry but in the last thirty years the structure and activities of many have been rationalized (digested) to form multi-divisional companies. See PRODUCT-BASED STRUCTURE.

In particular, two clades L-form and H-form were identified with the L-form clade clustering all L-oleosins tested, and the H-form clade clustering all H-oleosins.
Interestingly, two distinct clades of L-form and H-form were identified in the phylogenetic analysis, suggesting that the L and H-oleosins in angiosperms may have evolved independently before the speciation of several taxa.

Richards' equation can be expressed with water content ([theta]) or hydraulic pressure (h) as its primary variable, resulting in 3 main forms of Richards' equation: the h-form, [theta]-form, or mixed h[theta]-form.
The simplest strategy would be to switch to the h-form of Richards' equation and solve directly for h for the entire soil profile.
Hill and Pickering (1986) found that product-divisional companies were significantly outperformed by the holding company type (H-form) on both return-on-sales and return on investment, whilst Hill (1988), like Hoskisson (1987), found that the centralized divisional company (CM-form) outperformed the 'classic' divisionalized type, particularly amongst related diversifiers.
Less dramatically, and against the background of strengthening shopsteward organization in the UK during the 1960s and 1970s, Marginson (1985) has argued that the divisionalized company offered two advantages over the more loosely co-ordinated H-form. First, the management accounting controls of the divisionalized company encouraged the evaluation of operating management in terms of profitability, thus exerting pressure to contain unit labour costs.
The zaibatsu were characteristically diversified, but they used the holding company form or H-form, not the U-form or the M-form which Chandler depicted as "modem." Despite this difference, the zaibatsu succeeded in developing modern, effective structures, using organizational forms that we can call "group enterprise capitalism." This form was different than American capitalism, but both were increasingly coordinated through the visible hand of a managerial style of organization.
Although these large firms with many subsidiaries and affiliated firms have the multi-divisional structure which Chandler underlined as that of the modern firm, in Japan they also have an industry-wide H-form (Holding-company form).
Williamson also talks about holding companies, or H-form firms.
