NJ Rev Stat § 14A:12-5 (2013) What's This?

14A:12-5. Dissolution pursuant to provision in certificate of incorporation
(1) The certificate of incorporation may provide that any shareholder, or any specified number of shareholders, or the holders of any specified number or proportion of shares, or of any specified number or proportion of shares of any class or series, may effect the dissolution of the corporation at will or upon the occurrence of a specified event. In such a case, dissolution of the corporation may be effected by the filing of a certificate of dissolution in the office of the Secretary of State, signed, as the certificate of incorporation may provide, by a single shareholder, or the specified number of shareholders, or the holders of any specified number or proportion of shares, or of any specified number or proportion of shares of any class or series. The certificate of dissolution shall state the name of the corporation, the location of its registered office and the name of its registered agent. It shall also state that the corporation is dissolved; that the dissolution is effected pursuant to a provision of the certificate of incorporation; and that the certificate is executed and filed by the person or persons authorized by the certificate of incorporation.

(2) An amendment of the certificate of incorporation which adds a provision authorized by this section, or which amends or deletes such a provision, shall be authorized at a meeting of shareholders by a vote of all outstanding shares, or by such lesser vote, but not less than the vote set forth in paragraph 14A:9-2(4)(c), as may be specifically provided for in the certificate of incorporation for such amendment.

(3) If the certificate of incorporation of any corporation contains a provision authorized by this section, the fact that such provision exists shall be noted conspicuously on the face or back of every certificate for shares issued by such corporation, and each holder of such certificates shall conclusively be deemed to have taken delivery with notice of such provision. A provision authorized by this subsection shall become invalid if, subsequent to the adoption of such provision, shares are transferred or issued to any person who takes delivery of the share certificate without notice thereof, unless such person consents in writing to such provision.
