Périmètre refers to the scope of consolidation, ie all the companies included in a group:

So the tête de pèrimètre is the company at the head of the group.
This phrase gets almost not hits, and I haven't found any relating to companies, but this one is to trade unions:

"Ce mémoire permettra aux professionnels de déterminer plus aisément le périmètre d'ensemble de l'organisation syndicale **tête de périmètre**,
le pourcentage de contrôle, le pourcentage d'intérêt, et la méthode de consolidation appropriée."

My suggestion is supported by the mention of "entités détentrices", entities holding interests in the company. These could be immediate parent companies, or investors.
