729. Consequences of order imposing restrictions

(1) The effect of an order under section 726 that shares are subject to restrictions is as follows—
(a) any transfer of the shares is void,
(b) no voting rights are exercisable in respect of the shares,
(c) no further shares may be issued in right of the shares or in pursuance of an offer made to their holder,
(d) except in a liquidation, no payment may be made of sums due from the company on the shares, whether in respect of capital or otherwise.
(2) Where shares are subject to the restriction in subsection (1)(a), an agreement to transfer the shares is void.

This does not apply to an agreement to transfer the shares on the making of an order under section 732 made by virtue of subsection (3)(b) (removal of restrictions in case of Court-approved transfer).
(3) Where shares are subject to the restriction in subsection (1)(c) or (d), an agreement to transfer any right to be issued with other shares in right of those shares, or to receive any payment on them (otherwise than in a liquidation), is void.

This does not apply to an agreement to transfer any such right on the making of an order under section 732 made by virtue of subsection (3)(b) (removal of restrictions in case of Court-approved transfer).
(4) The provisions of this section are subject—
(a) to any directions under section 726(2) or section 731(3) (directions for protection of third parties), and
(b) in the case of an interim order under section 726(3), to the terms of the order.
