18 OK Stat § 18-1080 (2014) What's This?

RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION

A. A corporation, whenever desired, may integrate into a single instrument all of the provisions of its certificate of incorporation which are then in effect and operative as a result of there having up to that time been filed with the Secretary of State one or more certificates or other instruments pursuant to any of the sections referred to in Section 1008 of this title, and it may at the same time also further amend its certificate of incorporation by adopting a restated certificate of incorporation.

B. If the restated certificate of incorporation merely restates and integrates but does not further amend the certificate of incorporation, as up to that time amended or supplemented by any instrument that was filed pursuant to any of the sections mentioned in Section 1008 of this title, it may be adopted by the board of directors without a vote of the shareholders, or it may be proposed by the directors and submitted by them to the shareholders for adoption, in which case the procedure and vote required by Section 1077 of this title for amendment of the certificate of incorporation shall be applicable. If the restated certificate of incorporation restates and integrates and also further amends in any respect the certificate of incorporation, as up to that time amended or supplemented, it shall be proposed by the directors and adopted by the shareholders in the manner and by the vote prescribed by Section 1077 of this title or, if the corporation has not received any payment for any of its stock, in the manner and by the vote prescribed by Section 1076 of this title.

C. A restated certificate of incorporation shall be specifically designated as such in its heading. It shall state, either in its heading or in an introductory paragraph, the corporation’s present name, and, if it has been changed, the name under which it was originally incorporated, and the date of filing of its original certificate of incorporation with the Secretary of State. If it was adopted by the board of directors without a vote of the shareholders, unless it was adopted pursuant to the provisions of Section 1076 of this title, it shall state that it only restates and integrates and does not further amend the provisions of the corporation’s certificate of incorporation as up to that time amended or supplemented, and that there is no discrepancy between those provisions and the provisions of the restated certificate. A restated certificate of incorporation may omit:

1. Such provisions of the original certificate of incorporation which named the incorporator or incorporators, the initial board of directors, and the original subscribers for shares; and

2. Such provisions contained in any amendment to the certificate of incorporation as were necessary to effect a change, exchange, reclassification, subdivision, combination or cancellation of stock, if such change, exchange, reclassification, subdivision, combination or cancellation has become effective.

Any such omissions shall not be deemed a further amendment.

D. A restated certificate of incorporation shall be executed, acknowledged and filed in accordance with the provisions of Section 1007 of this title. Upon its filing with the Secretary of State, the original certificate of incorporation, as up to that time amended or supplemented, shall be superseded. From that time forward, the restated certificate of incorporation, including any further amendments or changes made thereby, shall be the certificate of incorporation of the corporation, but the original date of incorporation shall remain unchanged.

E. Any amendment or change effected in connection with the restatement and integration of the certificate of incorporation shall be subject to any other provision of the Oklahoma General Corporation Act, not inconsistent with the provisions of this section, which would apply if a separate certificate of amendment were filed to effect such amendment or change.
