Description

Secretary of State Business Programs Division Business Entities, 1500 11th Street, Sacramento, CA 95814 Certificate of Merger General Information The attached Certificate of Merger (Form OBE MERGER-1) may be used for the following mergers: Limited Liability Company Mergers: Mergers involving only limited liability companies in which one or more California limited liability companies is a party to the merger; Limited Partnership Mergers: Mergers involving only limited partnerships in which one or more California limited partnerships is a party to the merger; and Interspecies Mergers: Mergers involving "other business entities" in which one or more California corporations, limited liability companies, limited partnerships, or partnerships is a party to the merger. [The term "other business entity" is defined in California Corporations Code sections 174.5, 5063.5, 12242.5, 15911.01(k), 16901(12) and 17710.01(k).] Upon the filing of the Certificate of Merger by the Secretary of State, the separate existence of the disappearing domestic or qualified/registered business entity shall cease in California. Statutory filing provisions are found in California Corporations Code sections 1113(g) (stock corporations); 3203(g) (social purpose corporations); 6019.1 (nonprofit public benefit corporations); 8019.1 (nonprofit mutual benefit corporations); 9640 (nonprofit religious corporations); 12540.1 (consumer cooperative corporations); 15911.14 (limited partnerships); 16915(b) (general partnerships and limited liability partnerships); and 17710.14 (limited liability companies). One or more business entities can merge only if each entity is authorized by the laws under which it is organized to effect the merger and at least one California domestic entity is involved. There are a variety of filing requirements based not only on the types of entities involved in the merger, but also the domicile of the entities merging and whether or not any foreign (out-of-state) entities are qualified to transact business in the State of California. It is not feasible to provide information and sample documents for each set of circumstances. Documents must be drafted in accordance with applicable law, dependent upon the particular circumstances of the entities involved. Due to the complexity of merger transactions, it is recommended that the advice of private legal counsel, specializing in business entity matters, be consulted regarding the specific needs of the merging entities. When preparing merger documents, regardless of the type of merger, be sure the entity name included in the documents is exactly as it appears on the records of the Secretary of State, including entity endings, punctuation and abbreviations. For mergers in which a California or qualified foreign corporation or limited liability company is a party to the merger, prior to filing please verify the status of the entity being merged, as merger documents cannot be filed on behalf of suspended/forfeited corporations or limited liability companies. (California Revenue and Taxation Code sections 23301, 23301.5 and 23775.) The status of the entity can be checked online on the Secretary of State's California Business Search at kepler.sos.ca.gov.
