it too a subsidiary of...


Explanation:
filliale = subsidiary of a company, branch, agency

elle meme = used emphatically

It may mean it TOO if another party is a subsid of a named company. Without more context I cannot make any other offers except to say that you probably need to find something emphatic.

It is ALSO a subsid... (in addition to having some other specific relation to the parties ?).

"...which itself is a subsidiary..."


Explanation:
I'd be willing to bet that the antecedent of the feminine pronoun "elle" is "société," i.e., "company."
