(a) on the basis that, as a community contribution company, the company is restricted in its ability to pay dividends and to distribute its assets on dissolution or otherwise, and

(b) without reference to any value attributed to, or any method of valuation made applicable to, those shares by the company, whether that value or method is set out in its articles or otherwise.
