(b)any shares in HFC held by Beneficial shall, by virtue of this Act and without further assurance, be transferred to HIUK (and the name of HIUK shall be deemed to be registered in the register of members of HFC) and the transfer shall not constitute a distribution for the purposes of Part VIII of the Companies Act 1985 or a return of capital of Beneficial which would otherwise be unlawful by operation of law.
