(2) they are entitled to dividend/interest at the same rate and for the same period, so that at the next ensuing distribution, the dividend/interest payable per unit will amount to exactly the same sum (gross and net); and
(3) they carry the same rights as to unrestricted transfer, attendance and voting at meetings and rank pari passu in all other respects.
