§ 5985. Liquidating receiver.

Upon a hearing, after such notice as the court may direct to be given to all parties to the proceeding, and to any other parties in interest designated by the court, the court may appoint a liquidating receiver with authority to collect the assets of the corporation. The liquidating receiver shall have authority, subject to the order of the court, to dispose of all or any part of the assets of the corporation wherever situated, either at public or private sale. The assets of the corporation, or the proceeds resulting from a disposition thereof, shall be applied to the expenses of the liquidation and to the payment of the liabilities of the corporation, and any remaining assets or proceeds shall be distributed by the court in the manner provided by section 5975(c) (relating to winding up and distribution). The court may direct that any or all of the provisions of Subchapter H (relating to postdissolution provision for liabilities) shall apply. The order appointing the liquidating receiver shall state his powers and duties. The powers and duties may be increased or diminished at any time during the proceedings. A receiver of a corporation appointed under this section shall have authority to sue and defend in all courts in his own name as receiver of the corporation. The court appointing the receiver shall have exclusive jurisdiction of the corporation and its property wherever situated.
