§926. Abandonment of domestication

1. Abandonment of domestication by domestic business corporation.  Unless otherwise provided in a plan of domestication of a domestic business corporation, after the plan has been adopted and approved as required by this subchapter and at any time before the domestication has become effective, it may be abandoned by the corporation's board of directors without action by the shareholders.
If a domestication is abandoned under this subsection after articles of charter surrender have been filed with the Secretary of State but before the domestication has become effective, a statement that the domestication has been abandoned in accordance with this section, executed by an officer or other duly authorized representative of the corporation, must be delivered to the Secretary of State for filing prior to the effective date of the domestication. The statement takes effect upon filing, and the domestication is considered abandoned and does not become effective.

The statement takes effect upon filing, and the domestication is considered abandoned and does not become effective.
