New York Limited Liability Company Law Section 1002 - Procedures For Merger Or Consolidation.

1002. Procedures for merger or consolidation. (a) In connection with a merger or consolidation under this chapter, rights or securities of, or interests in, a limited liability company or other business entity that is a constituent party to the merger or consolidation may be exchanged for or converted into cash, property, rights or securities of, or interests in, the surviving or resulting limited liability company or other business entity or, in addition to or in lieu thereof, may be exchanged for or converted into cash, property, rights or securities of, or interests in, a limited liability company or other business entity that is not the surviving or resulting limited liability company or other business entity in the merger or consolidation.

(b) The members of each domestic limited liability company or other business entity shall adopt (with respect to a domestic limited liability company, in the manner provided in subdivision (c) of this section) an agreement of merger or consolidation, setting forth the terms and conditions of the conversion of the membership interests of the members of the domestic limited liability company into interests in the surviving or resulting limited liability company or other business entity or the cash or other consideration to be paid or delivered in exchange for membership interests in each domestic limited liability company, or a combination thereof.

(c) The agreement of merger or consolidation shall be submitted to the members of each domestic limited liability company who are entitled to vote with respect to a merger or consolidation at a meeting called on twenty days' notice or such greater notice as the operating agreement may provide. Subject to any requirement in the operating agreement requiring approval by any greater or lesser percentage in interest of the members who are entitled to vote with respect to a merger or consolidation, which shall not be less than a majority in interest of those members who are so entitled to vote, the agreement shall be approved on behalf of each domestic limited liability company (i) by such voting interests of the members as shall be required by the operating agreement, or (ii) if no provision is made, by the members representing at least a majority in interest of the members.

(d) Notwithstanding authorization by the members, the agreement of merger or consolidation may be terminated or amended pursuant to a provision for such termination or amendment, if any, contained in the agreement of merger or consolidation.

(e) Any member that is a party to a proposed merger or consolidation who is entitled to vote with respect to such proposed merger or consolidation may, prior to that time of the meeting at which such merger or consolidation is to be voted on, file with the domestic limited liability company written notice of dissent from the proposed merger or consolidation. Such notice of dissent may be withdrawn by the dissenting member at any time prior to the effective date of the merger or consolidation and shall be deemed to be withdrawn if the member casts a vote in favor of the proposed merger or consolidation.

(f) Upon the effectiveness of the merger or consolidation, the dissenting member (referred to in subdivision (e) of this section) of any domestic limited liability company shall not become or continue to be a member of or hold an interest in the surviving or resulting limited liability company or other business entity but shall be entitled to receive in cash from the surviving or resulting domestic limited liability company or other business entity the fair value of his or her membership interest in the domestic limited liability company as of the close of business of the day prior to the effective date of the merger or consolidation in accordance with section five hundred nine of this chapter but without taking account of the effect of the merger or consolidation.

(g) A member of a domestic limited liability company who has a right under this chapter to demand payment for his or her membership interest shall not have any right at law or in equity under this chapter to attack the validity of the merger or consolidation or to have the merger or consolidation set aside or rescinded, except in an action or contest with respect to compliance with the provisions of the operating agreement or subdivision (c) of this section.

(h) A limited liability company whose original articles of organization were filed with the secretary of state and effective prior to the effective date of this subdivision shall continue to be governed by this section as in effect on such date and shall not be governed by this section, unless otherwise provided in the operating agreement.
