Could you tell me if the following sentence is grammatically correct? (Put its reason aside…)
There is no single company which holds a legitimate mechanism for replacing the management.
Or is this better:
Not a single company holds a legitimate mechanism for replacing the management.

Ignoring how little sense it makes, the first sounds like if two or more joined up, it might work. There is no single one, but a couple together could...
The second one says no company exists.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
