382.010. As used in sections 382.010 to 382.300, the following words and terms have the meanings indicated unless the context clearly requires otherwise:
     (1) An "affiliate" of, or person "affiliated" with, a specific person, is a person that directly, or indirectly through one or more intermediaries, controls, or is controlled by, or is under common control with, the person specified;

Control shall be presumed to exist if any person, directly or indirectly, owns, controls, holds with power to vote, or holds proxies representing, ten percent or more of the voting securities of any other person. This presumption may be rebutted by a showing made in the manner provided by section 382.170 that control does not exist in fact. The director may determine, after furnishing all persons in interest notice and opportunity to be heard and making specific findings of fact to support such determination, that control exists in fact, notwithstanding the absence of a presumption to that effect;
