Was he then able to use GEICO s float after accumulating a 51% shareholding in the firm thereby becoming majority owner?

He started benefiting as soon as he bought his first Geico share, as the
company itself benefits from investing float and all shareholders benefit from that.

He started getting a big benefit when he started being the one to
pick the investments because he's so darned good at that.
I don't know when he took control to that extent. Good question.

The date that those earnings got consolidated isn't really as important as the two dates above.
