If such a payment is not disclosed the director holds it upon trust for the company.

(c) Section 194 deals with the situation where the shares of the company are being transferred. It applies where the transfer results from-

iii. an offer made by an individual with a view to his acquiring at least one-third of the voting power at any general meeting of the company; or

If a payment is made to a director as compensation for loss of office or on his retirement in any of the aforesaid circumstances, he must take reasonable steps to ensure that the particulars of the proposed payments are disclosed in the offer. If this is not done, the director holds the payment on trust for the persons who have sold their shares as a result of the offer.
