So I haven't used enterprises but I think this is the case.
You can buy a countries corporations?
How about vice versa? A Country could essentially buy out public corps to become the main shareholder and be able to use profit sharing.
Please tell me if this already exists but from some of the corps with 0% ownership, the country is still in control of them. IRL if you have the 51% you control the corp.

There are some limitations in what you can do, depending on whether you are an enterprise or a country. However, yes, it already exists that you can purchase corporations and a controlling interest in a public corporation. The example you gave likely includes investment funds, which can be managed by the player, that cannot control corporations.

Taking over other players Corps is a hostile act. And can be seen as an AoW (act of war.)
Unless you are talking about taking over SC corps. then most ppl would welcome that. But it's still always a good idea to ask 1st.

Thank you. Knowing the mechanics is the first step anyway. I would unlikely look at taking over any corporation without trying to contact the owner (in most cases).
What if it is an enterprise public corp? From what I can tell, they are unable to wage war?

Most CEO's also own countries. And the one's that don't are either noobs or they know ppl who do.
With that said. Public outlash may be big. ( I have seen it before a few times )
The only time i personally would say it is ok to take over a CEO's corp. is lets say said corp is in your country and the presence of that corp is messing things up. ( paying low wages and keeping that corps production low so u won't gain much from it. )
In that case, common practice would be to inform that CEO to fix up his corp or get out, after a warning or two, inform them that if they do not pack up for the sake of your country, u will be forced to take over said corp.

Buying a public corp is not an act of war. Otherwise, what is the point of making it public? Feel free to make bids on my CEO corps or my country corps. I have no issue with it. You can find my countries under "Roman Empire", Fearless Blue. My Ceo's are "Salem Enterprises" and "Signo Vinces Enterprises".

no, buying STOCK in cool. taking OVER a corp with out asking is messed up.

Stocks are like any product. If stock is available on the market, anybody is entitled to buy as much as he wants. If stock buying results in getting control of a public corp, it's nothing personal. It's just business.
On the other hand, some people who lose control of their public corps might not believe in laissez faire. They might retaliate militarily. Caveat emptor.

Hostile takeovers are just that; hostile!
If nobody got upset (and started a war over it) life would be pretty boring.
