§1-1106. Articles of merger or share exchange

            A. After a plan of merger or share exchange has been adopted and approved as required by this Subpart, articles of merger or share exchange shall be signed on behalf of each party to the merger or share exchange by any officer or other duly authorized representative. Articles of merger need not be signed on behalf of any subsidiary that is a party to a merger authorized without the approval of the subsidiary's board of directors or shareholders as permitted by R.S. 12:1-1105(A). The articles shall set forth all of the following:

            (1) The names of the parties to the merger or share exchange.

            (2) If the articles of incorporation of the survivor of a merger are amended, or if a new corporation is created as a result of a merger, the amendments to the survivor's articles of incorporation or the articles of incorporation of the new corporation.

            (3) If the plan of merger or share exchange required approval by the shareholders of a domestic corporation that was a party to the merger or share exchange, a statement that the plan was duly approved by the shareholders and, if voting by any separate voting group was required, by each such separate voting group, in the manner required by this Subpart and the articles of incorporation.

            (4) If the plan of merger or share exchange did not require approval by the shareholders of a domestic corporation that was a party to the merger or share exchange, a statement to that effect.

            (5) As to each eligible entity or foreign corporation that was a party to the merger or share exchange, a statement that the participation of the eligible entity or foreign corporation was duly authorized as required by the organic law of the eligible entity or corporation.

            B. Articles of merger or share exchange shall be delivered to the secretary of state for filing by the survivor of the merger or the acquiring corporation in a share exchange, and shall take effect at the effective time provided in R.S. 12:1-123. Articles of merger or share exchange filed under this Section may be combined with any filing required under the organic law of any domestic eligible entity involved in the transaction if the combined filing satisfies the requirements of both this Section and the other organic law.

            C. Within thirty days of the date that articles of merger take effect, a duplicate original or certified copy of the articles shall be filed in the conveyance records of each parish in this state in which any of the parties to the merger has immovable property.

            Acts 2014, No. 328, §1, eff. Jan. 1, 2015; Acts 2016, No. 442, §1.
