2017 ORS 60.654¹
Reinstatement following administrative dissolution

(1) A corporation that the Secretary of State administratively dissolved under ORS 60.651 (Procedure) may apply to the Secretary of State for reinstatement within five years from the date of dissolution. The application must:

(a) State the name of the corporation and the effective date of the corporation’s administrative dissolution; and

(b) State that the ground or grounds for dissolution either did not exist or have been eliminated.

(2) If the Secretary of State determines that the application contains the information required by subsection (1) of this section, that the information is correct and that the corporation’s name satisfies the requirements of ORS 60.094 (Corporate name), the Secretary of State shall reinstate the corporation.

(3) When effective, the reinstatement relates back to and takes effect as of the effective date of the administrative dissolution and the corporation resumes carrying on the corporation’s business as if the administrative dissolution had never occurred.

(4) The Secretary of State may waive the requirement under subsection (1) of this section that the corporation apply for reinstatement within five years after the date of administrative dissolution if the corporation requests the waiver and provides evidence of the corporation’s continued existence as an active concern during the period of administrative dissolution.
