55. If the articles of a corporation or a unanimous shareholder agreement so provide, no shares of a class may be issued unless the shares have first been offered to the shareholders holding shares of that class, and those shareholders have a pre-emptive right to acquire the offered shares in proportion to their holdings in shares of that class, at the price and on the terms those shares are to be offered to others.
Shareholders have no pre-emptive right in respect of shares to be issued for consideration payable in property or in services, shares to be issued as share dividends or shares to be issued pursuant to the exercise of exchange rights, options or acquisition rights or other rights previously granted by the corporation.
