  7. All shares not subscribed by shareholders or their transferees within the preferential option period, whether because of not exercising the right, partially exercising the right, or waiving the right, and shares from fractions produced from dividing the shares pro rata among the shareholders, shall be offered to those shareholders that did exercise their preferential option, in full or part, pro rata to the number of shares subscribed and paid by each of them, divided by the total shares subscribed and paid by all shareholders that participated in the capital increase during the preferential option period.
