In a case where that section would apply apart from this subsection, the deemed exchange in question (of shares, debentures or other interests in or of an entity that is or was at a material time a non-qualifying offshore fund) shall for the purposes of this Chapter constitute a disposal of interests in the offshore fund for a consideration equal to their market value at the time of the deemed exchange..
