14A:7-6. Redeemable shares
(1) A corporation may provide in its certificate of incorporation for one or more classes or series of shares which are redeemable, in whole or in part, at the option of the corporation in cash, its bonds or other property, at such price or prices, within such period or periods, and under such conditions as are stated in the certificate of incorporation. A sinking fund may be created for the redemption of any class or series of redeemable shares.
(2) A corporation which is an open-end investment company, as defined in an Act of Congress entitled "Investment Company Act of 1940," as amended or supplemented, or any act adopted in substitution therefor, may, if its certificate of incorporation so provides and upon compliance with that act, issue shares which are redeemable at the option of the holder at a price approximately equal to the shares' proportionate interest in the net assets of the corporation, and a shareholder may compel redemption of such shares in accordance with their terms.
(3) A corporation may provide, in its certificate of incorporation for one or more classes or series of shares which are redeemable, in whole or in part, at the option of the shareholder. Subject to the restrictions imposed by section 14A:7-16, such shares may be redeemable in cash, bonds of the corporation or other property, at such price or prices, as are fixed, or established by formula, within such period or periods and under such conditions as are stated in the certificate of incorporation, and such shares may also be redeemable at the option of the corporation, as provided in subsection 14A:7-6(1). If any shares redeemable at the option of the shareholder are outstanding, the certificate of incorporation may be amended to delete or limit the provisions concerning redeemability with respect to those outstanding shares only with the unanimous approval of the holders of those shares. The provisions of this subsection shall not be applicable to an open-end investment company.
