  5. a reconversion of stock into shares (Form SH02)

  6. a notice of cancellation of treasury shares by a public limited company (Form SH05)

  7. a redenomination of share capital (Form SH14)

  8. a reduction of capital following redenomination (Form SH15), and

  9. a reduction of capital (Form SH19)
