178.1135 Effect of interest exchange.

(1) When an interest exchange becomes effective, all of the following apply:

(a) The interests in the acquired entity which are the subject of the interest exchange are exchanged as provided in the plan of interest exchange, and the former interest holders of those interests are entitled only to the rights provided to them under the plan of interest exchange or to their rights, if any, under ss. 178.1161, 179.77, 180.1301 to 180.1331, or otherwise under the governing law of the acquired entity. All other terms and conditions of the interest exchange also take effect.

(b) The acquiring entity becomes the interest holder of the interests which are the subject of the interest exchange as provided in the plan of interest exchange.

(c) The provisions of the organizational documents of the acquiring and acquired entity are amended to the extent, if any, provided in the plan of interest exchange and to the extent such amendments are to be reflected in a public record, as provided in the articles of interest exchange.

(2) Except as otherwise provided in the articles and plan of interest exchange, if the acquired entity is a domestic or foreign partnership, limited liability company, or other organization subject to dissolution under its governing law, the interest exchange does not dissolve the acquired entity.

(3)

(a) Except as provided in this subsection, no interest holder shall have interest holder liability with respect to either the acquiring or acquired entity.

(b) If, under the governing law of either entity, one or more of the interest holders thereof had interest holder liability prior to the interest exchange with respect to the entity, such interest holder or holders shall continue to have such liability and any associated contribution and other rights to the extent provided in such governing law with respect to debts, obligations, and other liabilities of the entity that accrued during the period or periods in which such interest holder or holders had such interest holder liability.

(c) If, under the governing law of either entity, one or more of the interest holders thereof will have interest holder liability after the interest exchange with respect to the entity, such interest holder or holders shall have such liability and any associated contribution and other rights to the extent provided in such governing law with respect to the debts, obligations, and other liabilities of the entity that accrue on or after the interest exchange.

(d) This subsection does not affect liability under any taxation laws.

(5)

(a) When an interest exchange takes effect, the department is the agent of any foreign acquiring entity for service of process in a proceeding to enforce any obligation or the rights of dissenting or other owners of each domestic partnership that is a party to the interest exchange.

(b) When an interest exchange takes effect, any foreign acquiring entity shall promptly pay to any dissenting or other former owners of each acquired domestic partnership the amount, if any, to which they are entitled under ss. 178.1161 or 180.1301 to 180.1331, and otherwise comply with the obligations of the acquired domestic partnership under its governing law.
