(Cite as: 11B V.S.A. § 14.21)
  • § 14.21. Procedure for and effect of involuntary termination

    (a) Upon determining that one or more grounds exist under section 14.20 of this title for dissolving a corporation, the Secretary of State shall serve the corporation with written notice of that determination under section 5.04 of this title.

    (b) If the corporation does not correct each ground for dissolution or demonstrate to the reasonable satisfaction of the Secretary of State that each ground determined by the Secretary of State does not exist within at least 60 days after service of the notice is perfected under section 5.04 of this title, the Secretary of State may administratively dissolve the corporation by signing a certificate of dissolution that recites the ground or grounds for dissolution and its effective date. The Secretary of State shall file the original of the certificate and serve a copy on the corporation under section 5.04 of this title, and in the case of a public benefit corporation shall notify the Attorney General in writing.

    (c) A corporation involuntarily dissolved continues its corporate existence but may not carry on any activities except those necessary to wind up and liquidate its affairs under section 14.05 of this title and notify its claimants under sections 14.06 and 14.07 of this title.

    (d) The involuntarily dissolution of a corporation does not terminate the authority of its registered agent. (Added 1995, No. 179 (Adj. Sess.), § 1, eff. Jan. 1, 1997.)
