    Lightbulb HELP! the usage of 'by those of a competing corporation"

    Hi I couldn't figure out this sentence. Anyone can help me explain the sentence in plain English. What does it mean??
    'Their plans were overshadowed by those of a competing corporation'.

    -'By those of'' -Is it kind of usage?

    -'those(plural) of' +a(singular) competing corporation'??? Why???

    And how to use (by+those of..) and can you give some examples, please. I really don't know how to use or explain this sentence!

    Thanks!

    Those = the plans

    Their plans were overshadowed by the plans of a competing corporation.
