                    ``(I) computing distributions under such 
                subsections; and
                    ``(II) entitling the holder of the share to the

            ``(i) non-village shares with the nonresident rights that 
        attach to such shares that are purchased pursuant to this 
        paragraph shall be considered to be--
                    ``(I) outstanding shares; and
                    ``(II) for the purposes of subsection (m), shares of

        Regional Corporation to itself; and
            ``(iii) village shares that are purchased pursuant to this 
        paragraph shall be considered to be--
                    ``(I) outstanding shares, and
                    ``(II) for the purposes of subsection (k) shares of 
                stock registered on the books of the Cook Inlet Regional

        or any other similar person, entity, or representative.
