2019 Mississippi Code
Title 79 - Corporations, Associations, and Partnerships
Chapter 29 - Revised Mississippi Limited Liability Company Act
Article 7 - Assignment of Financial Interests.
§ 79-29-707. Right of assignee to become a member
(1) An assignee of a financial interest may become a member with governance interests if and to the extent that: (a) the certificate of formation or operating agreement so provides; (b) all other members consent; or (c) in the case of an assignee of a member’s entire financial interest in which, immediately following the assignment, the limited liability company otherwise would have no members, simultaneously with and upon the assignment of the interest to an assignee who agrees to become a member.
(2) An assignee who has become a member has, to the extent assigned, the governance rights and powers, and is subject to the restrictions and liabilities, of a member under the certificate of formation or operating agreement and this chapter. An assignee who becomes a member also is liable for the obligations of the assignee’s assignor to make and return contributions as provided in Articles 5 and 6 of this chapter. However, the assignee is not obligated for liabilities or obligations unknown to the assignee at the time the assignee became a member and which could not be ascertained from the certificate of formation or the operating agreement.
(3) Whether or not an assignee of a financial interest becomes a member, the assignor is not released from the assignor’s liability to the limited liability company under Articles 5 and 6 of this chapter.
