47-14A-93. Conversion of business trust to other business entity. A business trust may convert to an other business entity formed or organized under the laws of the State of South Dakota, upon the authorization of such conversion in accordance with this section. If the governing instrument specifies the manner of authorizing a conversion of the business trust, the conversion shall be authorized as specified in the governing instrument. If the governing instrument does not specify the manner of authorizing a conversion of the business trust and does not prohibit a conversion of the business trust, the conversion shall be authorized in the same manner as is specified in the governing instrument for authorizing a merger or consolidation that involves the business trust as a constituent party to the merger or consolidation. If the governing instrument does not specify the manner of authorizing a conversion of the business trust or a merger or consolidation that involves the business trust as a constituent party and does not prohibit a conversion of the business trust, the conversion shall be authorized by the approval by all of the beneficial owners and all of the trustees. When the conversion of a business trust has become effective, the business trust shall file a certificate of cancellation in the Office of the Secretary of State in accordance with this chapter. Unless otherwise agreed, the conversion of a business trust to an other business entity pursuant to this section shall not require such business trust to wind up its affairs under §§ 47-14A-35 to 47-14A-41, inclusive, or pay its liabilities and distribute its assets under §§ 47-14A-35 to 47-14A-41, inclusive. In connection with a conversion of a business trust to an other business entity pursuant to this section, rights or securities of, or interests in, the business trust which is to be converted may be exchanged for or converted into cash, property, rights, or securities of, or interests in the other business entity into which the business trust is being converted or, in addition to or in lieu thereof, may be exchanged for or converted into cash, property, rights, or securities of, or interests in, any other business entity.
