As defined in section 1.002 of the BOC, conversion means the continuance of a Texas entity as a foreign entity of any type, the continuance of a foreign entity as a Texas entity of any type, or the continuance of a Texas entity of one type as a Texas entity of another type. As used in the BOC and in this form, "converting entity" means the entity that existed before the conversion; "converted entity" means the entity resulting from a conversion. This form should be used when a corporation is the converting entity and the converted entity is a limited liability company. Instructions for Form · Converting Entity Information: The certificate of conversion is filed by the converting entity and should set forth the legal name of the converting entity and its jurisdiction of organization as part of the certificate.

Plan of Conversion/Alternative Statements: A plan of conversion conforming to the requirements of section 10.103 of the BOC should be attached to the certificate of conversion.

Converted Entity Name: If the converted entity is a Texas filing entity, the name of the converted entity will be checked for availability in accordance with section 5.053 of the BOC. If the converted entity name is the same as, deceptively similar to, or similar to the name of an existing domestic or foreign filing entity, or any name reservation or name registration filed with the secretary of state, the document cannot be filed. However, if the conflicting entity name is the name of the converting entity and the converting entity is currently in existence with the secretary of state, the converted entity name will be accepted irrespective of the conflict with the entity name in use by the converting entity. Certificate of Formation for the Converted Entity: The certificate of formation of the converted entity must be filed with the certificate of conversion if the converted entity is a Texas filing entity. If the plan of conversion is attached to the certificate of conversion, the certificate of formation should be included as part of the plan of conversion or as an exhibit to the plan. If the converting entity opts to set forth the alternative statements in lieu of providing the complete plan of conversion, the certificate of formation for the limited liability company must be attached to the certificate of conversion. · · · The certificate of formation of a limited liability company formed under a plan of conversion must include a statement to that effect.

If the converted entity is a foreign limited liability company, the foreign entity must register as a foreign filing entity under chapter 9 of the BOC before the transaction of any business in Texas. · Approval of the Plan of Conversion: The certificate of conversion must include a statement that the plan of conversion has been approved as required by (1) the laws of the jurisdiction of formation and (2) the governing documents of the converting entity.
