(2) The life of the interest ends no later than the time when it converts into that * equity interest.
(3) The possibility of the conversion is to be disregarded in working out the length of the life of the interest arising from the * scheme for the purposes of section 974- 35 if it is uncertain:
(a) whether the interest will ever convert; or
