59A-34-37. Preservation of old charter in merger, consolidation.

A. In any merger or consolidation of a foreign stock or mutual insurer into or with a domestic insurer under Chapter 59A, Article 34 NMSA 1978, the continuing New Mexico corporation shall for all purposes be deemed to be continuation of the corporate existence of the foreign corporation, with New Mexico as the adoptive state of domicile and with date of corporate origin the same as the original date of incorporation of the foreign insurer in its original domiciliary state or country, subject to the following conditions:

(1) the plan and agreement of merger or consolidation shall provide for such continuation of corporate existence, with designation of New Mexico as the state of domicile of the foreign corporation by adoption, and shall specify the original date of incorporation of the foreign corporation in its original domiciliary state or country as being the date of incorporation of the New Mexico corporation pursuant to this section;

(2) the articles of corporation of the New Mexico corporation shall provide, or be amended to provide, that the corporation is a continuance of the corporate existence, through adoption of New Mexico as the corporate domicile, of the foreign corporation, and shall specify the original date of incorporation of the foreign corporation in its original domiciliary state or country as being the date of incorporation of the New Mexico corporation pursuant to this section; and

(3) the continuing New Mexico corporation shall as of merger or consolidation effective date have paid-in capital stock and additional surplus in amount not less than as required of a newly-authorized foreign stock insurer under Section 59A-5-16 NMSA 1978 to transact the same kinds of insurance, and shall have all the rights and obligations of, and be given recognition in all respects as, a corporation formed under the laws of this state as of the date of incorporation of the foreign corporation in its original domiciliary state or country. This provision shall not be deemed to impose upon the continuing New Mexico corporation any liability or obligation as to filings, fees, taxes or otherwise that might have accrued prior to effective date of the merger or consolidation.

B. This section shall not be deemed in any manner to preserve, after effective date of merger or consolidation, the corporate existence of the foreign corporation as a corporation of its original domiciliary state or country.
