VETERANS' ENTITLEMENTS ACT 1986 - SECT 52ZZG

Interest in a share

             (1)  This section applies for the purpose of working out the percentage of a company's total paid-up share capital in which an entity holds an interest.

             (2)  Subject to this section, for the purposes of this Subdivision, an entity holds an interest in a share if the entity has any legal or equitable interest in the share.

             (3)  For the purposes of this Subdivision, an entity is taken to hold an interest in a share if:

                     (a)  the entity has entered into a contract to purchase the share; or

                     (b)  the entity has a right (otherwise than because of having an interest under a trust) to have the share transferred to the entity or to the entity's order (whether the right is exercisable presently or in the future and whether or not on the fulfilment of a condition); or

                     (c)  the entity has a right to acquire the share, or an interest in the share, under an option (whether the right is exercisable presently or in the future and whether or not on the fulfilment of a condition); or

                     (d)  the entity is otherwise entitled to acquire the share or an interest in the share; or

                     (e)  the entity is entitled (otherwise than because of having been appointed as a proxy or representative to vote at a meeting of members of the company or of a class of its members) to exercise or control the exercise of a right attached to the share.

             (4)  Subsection (3) does not, by implication, limit subsection (2).

             (5)  An entity is taken to hold an interest in a share even if the entity holds the interest in the share jointly with another entity.

             (6)  For the purpose of determining whether an entity holds an interest in a share, it is immaterial that the interest cannot be related to a particular share.

             (7)  An interest in a share is not to be disregarded only because of:

                     (a)  its remoteness; or

                     (b)  the manner in which it arose; or

                     (c)  the fact that the exercise of a right conferred by the interest is, or is capable of being made, subject to restraint or restriction.
