                     (a)  the person may:

                              (i)  by giving a written and signed notice to the company, elect to be registered as the holder of the shares; or

                             (ii)  by giving a completed transfer form to the company, transfer the shares to another person; and

                     (b)  the person is entitled, whether or not registered as the holder of the shares, to the same rights as the shareholder.
