Select statement with and/or conditions

I have a select statement that contains multiple (and) conditions as well as an (or) condition.
The or portion doesn't seem to work.  I was wondering if I could get another set of eyes to look at this to see what I'm doing wrong.
I basically have data in this file with the original company as one of the fields and I'm passing a parameter for the company number but I have one exception.
I want all the records that contain that company number to be selected or (if the company number in the record is not equal to the company parameter passed and the type is 'INT'

select      tfgld106.*, tfgld008.*
            from       tfgld106, tfgld008
            where      tfgld106._index1 = {:ttyp.f, :docn.f}
            and     tfgld106.fyer = :year.f      
            and      tfgld106.leac inrange :leac.f and :leac.t
            and      tfgld106.fprd inrange :prod.f and :prod.t
            and      tfgld106.catg <> tfgld.catg.opening.bal
            and      tfgld106.dele <> tcyesno.yes
            and      tfgld106.leac refers to tfgld008
            and      tfgld008.subl = 0
            and      (tfgld106.ocmp = :company.number or
                         tfgld106.ocmp <> :company.number and tfgld106.otyp = "INT")


My records would look something like this:
otyp        Leac     ocmp      fprd
AB          00005    670          4
NON       00010    670          4
INT         00015    683          4

My company parameter would be equal to 670
I would want the select statement to pull all of the records above

Probably need another set of parenthesis to set the order of execution

            and      (tfgld106.ocmp = :company.number or
                         (tfgld106.ocmp <> :company.number and tfgld106.otyp = "INT"))
