HI Rev Stat § 428-905 (2010 through Reg Sess) What's This?

§428-905 Articles of merger. (a) After a plan of merger is approved in accordance with section 428-904(e), unless the merger is terminated under section 428-904(h), articles of merger shall be signed on behalf of each limited liability company and each other entity that is a party to the merger, and shall be delivered to the director for filing. The articles shall set forth:

(1) The name and jurisdiction of each entity that is a party to the merger, and the name, address, and jurisdiction of the surviving entity;

(2) A statement that the plan of merger has been approved by each entity that is a party to the merger;

(3) A statement indicating any changes in the organizing articles of the surviving entity to be given effect by the merger; provided that if no changes are made, a statement that the organizing articles of the surviving entity shall not be amended pursuant to the merger;

(4) The future effective date (which shall be a date certain) of the merger if it is not to be effective upon the filing of the articles of merger; provided that the effective date shall not be more than thirty days from the filing date; and

(5) A statement that includes:

(A) An agreement that the surviving entity may be served with process in this State in any action or proceeding for the enforcement of any liability or obligation of any entity previously subject to suit in this State that is to merge;

(B) An irrevocable appointment of a resident of this State as its agent to accept service of process in a proceeding under subparagraph (A), that includes the resident's street address in this State; and

(C) An agreement for the enforcement, as provided in this chapter, of the right of any dissenting member, shareholder, or partner to receive payment for their interest against the surviving entity.

(b) If the articles of merger provide for a future effective date, and:

(1) The plan of merger is amended to change the future effective date;

(2) The plan of merger permits the amendment of the articles of merger to change the future effective date without an amendment to the plan of merger; or

(3) The plan of merger is amended to change any other matter contained in the articles of merger so as to make the articles of merger inaccurate in any material respect, prior to the future effective date;

then the articles of merger shall be amended by filing with the director a certificate of amendment that identifies the articles of merger and sets forth the amendment to the articles of merger.

If the articles of merger provide for a future effective date and if a plan of merger is terminated prior to the future effective date, the articles of merger shall be terminated by filing with the director a certificate of termination that identifies the articles of merger and states that the plan of merger has been terminated.

(c) Articles of merger operate as an amendment to the limited liability company's organizing articles. [L 1996, c 92, pt of §1; am L 1999, c 249, §32; am L 2000, c 219, §78; am L 2002, c 41, §24; am L 2003, c 124, §77; am L 2004, c 121, §48; am L 2006, c 184, §35]
