The restated articles of incorporation may contain any changes in the articles of incorporation that could be made by amendment regularly adopted.

(c) The initial or present registered office or agent; or

(d) The mailing address of the cooperative if an annual report has been filed with the Office of the Secretary of State.

(3) Restated articles of incorporation when executed and filed in the manner prescribed in this chapter shall supersede the theretofore existing articles of incorporation and amendments thereto. The Secretary of State shall upon request certify a copy of the articles of incorporation, or the articles of incorporation as restated, or any amendments to either thereof.

(4) The restated articles of incorporation, when filed, shall be accompanied by a statement and a true copy of the statement as provided in this subsection. The statement shall set forth:

(a) The name of the cooperative.

(b) The date of the adoption of the restated articles of incorporation.

(e) If the restated articles of incorporation provide for an exchange, reclassification or cancellation of issued shares, and if the manner in which the same shall be effected is not set forth in the restated articles of incorporation, then a statement of the manner in which the same shall be effected.
