The notice must state that the purpose, or one of the purposes, of the meeting is to consider the agreement of merger and must contain or be accompanied by a copy or summary of the agreement of merger. If the limited liability company is to be merged into an existing entity, the notice shall also include or be accompanied by a copy or summary of the organizational documents of that entity. If the limited liability company is to be merged into an entity that is to be created pursuant to the merger, the notice shall include or be accompanied by a copy or a summary of the organizational documents of the new entity.
