(a)the VCT, or

(b)a company which is (or later becomes) a successor or predecessor of the VCT.

(ii)the individual’s subscription for shares in the VCT was conditional upon that purchase, or

(b)the subscription for the relevant shares and the sale of the sold shares are within 6 months of each other (irrespective of which came first).

(7)A company (“company X”) is a “successor or predecessor of the VCT” if—

(a)there is a merger of two or more companies for the purposes of Chapter 5 (see section 323) and—

(i)the VCT is one of the merged companies and company X is “the successor company” (as defined by that section), or

(ii)the VCT is “the successor company” and company X is one of the merged companies, or

(ii)company X is “the old company” and the VCT is “the new company” for those purposes.
