Good non-exact matching approach?

I have been playing around the non-exact match. Recently I am having this problem.

Here is a list of company names:

1, Apple Inc
2, Apple Design Inc
3, Apple Cell Inc
4, Apple Pod Inc
5, Apple Fruit Inc
6, Apple Drink Inc
7, Apple Juice Inc

1-4 are the ones I want to get from matching because they are all related to Apple Inc ´╝łApple Inc is the parent and the rest are the subsidiaries). If I use "Apple" word to do the non-exact match, I believe I will get all 7, and 5-7 are companies not related to Apple Inc. Is there any good non-exact matching approach so eventually I can get 1-4, not 5-7?

Thank you all!
