(a) (1) The exclusive right to the use of a corporate name may be reserved by any person or corporation, foreign or domestic, by filing with the Secretary of State a written application to reserve a specified corporate name.

(2) If the Secretary of State finds that the name is not identical with or confusingly similar to any other name reserved or registered under either this section or 4-26-403 or the name of any domestic corporation or any foreign corporation admitted to this state, he shall reserve it for the exclusive use of the applicant for a period of six (6) months provided the applicant pays the fee prescribed by law.

(b) The right to the exclusive use of a specified corporate name so reserved may be transferred to any other person or corporation by filing in the office of the Secretary of State a notice of such transfer, executed by the applicant for whom the name was reserved, specifying the name and address of the transferee.

(c) The Secretary of State may, however, revoke any reservation after hearing if of the opinion that the application or any transfer was not made in good faith.

(d) A name reservation under this section may not be renewed, nor shall the same name be reserved on any subsequent application filed by or for the benefit of the original applicant or any person, firm, or corporation identified with such applicant, or any transferee of the original applicant.
