§ 7-6-53 Revocation of voluntary dissolution proceedings.

(a) A corporation may, at any time prior to the issuance of a certificate of dissolution by the secretary of state, revoke the action previously taken to dissolve the corporation, in the following manner:

(1) If there are members entitled to vote on it, the board of directors shall adopt a resolution recommending that the voluntary dissolution proceedings be revoked, and directing that the question of the revocation be submitted to a vote at a meeting of members entitled to vote on it, which may be either an annual or a special meeting. Written notice stating that the purpose, or one of the purposes, of the meeting is to consider the advisability of revoking the voluntary dissolution proceedings, shall be given to each member entitled to vote at the meeting, within the time and in the manner provided in this chapter for the giving of notice of meetings of members. A resolution to revoke the voluntary dissolution proceedings shall be adopted upon receiving at least a majority of the votes which members present at the meeting or represented by proxy are entitled to cast.

(2) If there are no members, or no members entitled to vote on it, a resolution to revoke the voluntary dissolution proceedings shall be adopted at a meeting of the board of directors upon receiving the vote of a majority of the directors in office.

(b) Upon the adoption of the resolution by the members, or by the board of directors where there are no members or no members entitled to vote on it, the corporation may at that time again conduct its affairs.
