This section applies for the purposes of determining whether a body corporate (in this section called the first body ) is a subsidiary of another body corporate.

48(2)  
Any shares held, or power exercisable, by the other body in a fiduciary capacity are treated as not held or exercisable by it.

48(3)  
Subject to subsections (4) and (5), any shares held, or power exercisable:


(a) by a person as a nominee for the other body (except where the other body is concerned only in a fiduciary capacity); or


(b) by, or by a nominee for, a subsidiary of the other body (not being a subsidiary that is concerned only in a fiduciary capacity);

are treated as held or exercisable by the other body.

48(4)  
Any shares held, or power exercisable, by a person by virtue of the provisions of debentures of the first body, or of a trust deed for securing an issue of such debentures, are to be disregarded.

48(5)  
Any shares held, or power exercisable, otherwise than as mentioned in subsection (4), by, or by a nominee for, the other body or a subsidiary of it are to be treated as not held or exercisable by the other body if:


(a) the ordinary business of the other body or that subsidiary, as the case may be, includes lending money; and


(b) the shares are held, or the power is exercisable, only by way of security given for the purposes of a transaction entered into in the ordinary course of business in connection with lending money, not being a transaction entered into with an associate of the other body, or of that subsidiary, as the case may be.

48(6)  


Any shares in the first body that are MCIs, and any powers exercisable by a person by virtue of such shares, are to be disregarded.
