There is no subordinate clause. You can replace everything after 'has' with 'it' - your sentence will then read: He has it. This means your sentence structure is: subject + verb + object. To have a complex sentence, you would need one more clause (subject + verb) joined to the abbreviated 'He has it,' by means of a subordinating conjunction. This, of course, is absent from your example sentence.
