14A:7-8.1. Par value of shares and stated capital.
(1) Unless otherwise provided in the certificate of incorporation, all shares shall have no par value and no stated capital shall be required to be maintained.

(2) A corporation in its certificate of incorporation may specify a par value for any class or series of its shares, may require that a specified stated capital be maintained, or may impose any other capitalization requirements. A corporation which specifies in its certificate of incorporation the par value for its shares or a specified stated capital shall not be subject to any limitations on distributions other than those set forth in section 14A:7-14.1, unless other restrictions are set forth in the certificate of incorporation.

(3) If for any reason the laws of this State or those of any other jurisdiction require that the par value of shares or stated capital of a corporation be ascertained, then solely for that purpose a domestic corporation which has not otherwise made express provision therefor in its certificate of incorporation shall be deemed to have declared and be entitled to declare that its capital stock has a par value of one mill per share and a stated capital of one mill times the number of shares then outstanding.
