      In a division, rights and liabilities (including licenses) of the divided party are transferred to the newly established legal entities in accordance with the separation balance sheet.
      When a legal entity or entities spin off another entity, each of them acquires rights and obligations (including licenses) of the reorganised entity in accordance with the separation balance sheet.
