外加工作需要,我也请教过身边母语是英文的,他们的理解就是投资者将拥有B COMPANY 6%的股份."

now i understand why this english sentence reads odd. most native english speakers read VERY FAST. and they would read the second sentence as

B company will own 100% of the shares of A company and will give 6% of ITS shares to investor in exchange for a 4 months loan of USD100,000.

note, here "ITS" refers to the subject "B company" and, unfortunately, this IS the correct way to write english sentence.

in contrast, "and will give 6% of THESE shares to investors..." is flawed grammatically (thought still acceptable). a better expression would be "and will give 6% of the CONVERTED shares to investors..."

your boss is not a lawyer!
