Explanation:
Notice in lieu of distringas

This is used in company law to prevent the wrongful transfer of shares. The notice is issued by the shareholder to the company, which must then inform him of any attempt to transfer his shares. See Share transfer.
The Penguin Business Dictionary, © Michael Greener 1994
(http://www.xrefer.com/entry/107298)

distringas n.
[[Latin: that you distrain]] A writ, now obsolete, commanding the sheriff to distrain on a person for a certain purpose. In modern practice it has been replaced by a stop notice, sometimes called a notice in lieu of distringas, which prevents dealings in securities that are subject to a charging order.

Dictionary of Law, Oxford University Press © Market House Books Ltd 1997

Distringas
A notice issued by a court preventing a company from registering transfers of shares or other securities. (http://www.indiainfoline.com/bisc/jama/jmmd.html)

Example:

9.—The Minister may make regulations for all or any of the following purposes:
( a ) prescribing the manner in which and the persons to whom applications under this Act for the conversion of stock of a Government loan are to be made and prescribing the evidence which may be accepted by those persons as to matters on which the validity of such applications may depend;
( b ) specifying the persons by whom any such application may be made where a stockholder has died, or is outside the State, or is of unsound mind, or is an infant, or is otherwise under a disability, or where a notice in lieu of distringas is in force with respect to the holding;
