REVOCATION OF VOLUNTARY DISSOLUTION

A. At any time prior to the expiration of three (3) years following the dissolution of a corporation pursuant to the provisions of Section 1096 of this title, or, at any time prior to the expiration of such longer period as the district court may have directed pursuant to the provisions of Section 1099 of this title, a corporation may revoke the dissolution up to that time effected by it in the following manner:

1. For purposes of this section, “shareholders” means the shareholders of record on the date the dissolution becomes effective;

2. The board of directors shall adopt a resolution recommending that the dissolution be revoked and directing that the question of the revocation be submitted to a vote at a special meeting of shareholders;

3. Notice of the special meeting of shareholders shall be given in accordance with the provisions of Section 1067 of this title to each of the shareholders; and

4. At the meeting a vote of the shareholders shall be taken on a resolution to revoke the dissolution. If a majority of the stock of the corporation which was outstanding and entitled to vote upon a dissolution at the time of its dissolution shall be voted for the resolution, a certificate of revocation of dissolution shall be executed and acknowledged in accordance with the provisions of Section 1007 of this title which shall state:

a.the name of the corporation;

b.the names and respective addresses of its officers;

c.the names and respective addresses of its directors; and

d.that a majority of the stock of the corporation which was outstanding and entitled to vote upon a dissolution at the time of its dissolution have voted in favor of a resolution to revoke the dissolution; or, if it be the fact, that, in lieu of a meeting and vote of shareholders, the shareholders have given their written consent to the revocation in accordance with the provisions of Section 1073 of this title.

B. Upon the filing in the Office of the Secretary of State of the certificate of revocation of dissolution, the Secretary of State, upon being satisfied that the requirements of this section have been complied with, shall issue his certificate that the dissolution has been revoked. Upon the issuance of such certificate by the Secretary of State, the revocation of the dissolution shall become effective and the corporation may again carry on its business.

C. Upon the issuance of the certificate by the Secretary of State to which subsection B of this section refers, the provisions of Section 1056 of this title shall govern, and the period of time the corporation was in dissolution shall be included within the calculation of the thirty-day and thirteen-month periods to which subsection C of Section 1056 of this title refers. An election of directors, however, may be held at the special meeting of shareholders to which subsection A of this section refers, and in that event, that meeting of shareholders shall be deemed an annual meeting of shareholders for purposes of subsection C of Section 1056 of this title.

D. If, after three (3) years from the date upon which the dissolution became effective, the name of the corporation is unavailable upon the records of the Secretary of State, then, in such case, the corporation shall not be reinstated under the same name which it bore when its dissolution became effective, but shall adopt and be reinstated under some other name, and in such case the certificate to be filed pursuant to the provisions of this section shall set forth the name borne by the corporation at the time its dissolution became effective and the new name under which the corporation is to be reinstated.

E. Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect the jurisdiction or power of the district court pursuant to the provisions of Section 1100 or 1101 of this title.
