Action on plan of merger

(1) A plan of merger shall be approved by each business entity that is a party to the merger, as follows:

(a) In the case of a cooperative, the board shall by resolution approve the plan and direct that the plan be submitted to a vote at an annual or a special meeting of members. Written notice shall be given to each member in the manner provided in this chapter for meetings of members, and approval of the plan shall be by affirmative vote of a majority of the member votes cast thereon. The articles may permit shareholders to vote on approval of the plan, and may fix the proportion of shareholder votes required for approval. If the articles permit shareholders to vote on such a plan, written notice shall be given to each shareholder entitled to vote thereon in the manner and at the time provided for notice to members.

(b) In the case of a business entity other than a cooperative, as provided by the statutes governing that business entity.

(2) After a merger is authorized, and at any time before articles of merger are filed, the planned merger may be abandoned, subject to any contractual rights:

(a) By the cooperative, without further action by the members or shareholders, in accordance with the procedure set forth in the plan of merger or, if none is set forth, in the manner determined by the board of directors.

(b) By a party to the merger that is not a cooperative, in accordance with the procedure set forth in the plan of merger or, if none is set forth, in the manner permitted by the statutes governing that business entity. [1999 c.362 §25]
