Texas Business Organizations Code
Sec. § 10.051
Interest Exchanges


For the purpose of acquiring all of the outstanding ownership or membership interests of one or more classes or series of one or more domestic entities, one or more domestic entities or non-code organizations may adopt a plan of exchange.


To make an interest exchange under this section:


the governing authority of each domestic entity the ownership or membership interests of which are to be acquired in the interest exchange must act on a plan of exchange and, if otherwise required by this code, the owners or members of the domestic entity must approve the plan of exchange in the manner provided by this code; and


each acquiring domestic entity must take all action that may otherwise be required by this code and its governing documents to effect the exchange.


A domestic entity subject to dissenters’ rights must provide the notice required by Section 10.355 (Notice of Right of Dissent and Appraisal).


If a non-code organization is to acquire ownership or membership interests in the exchange, each non-code organization must take all action that is required under the laws of the organization’s jurisdiction of formation and the organization’s governing documents to effect the exchange.


If one or more non-code organizations as part of the plan of exchange are to issue ownership or membership interests, the issuance of the ownership or membership interests must be permitted by the laws under which the non-code organizations are incorporated or organized or not inconsistent with those laws.


A plan of exchange may not be effected if any owner or member of a domestic entity that is a party to the interest exchange will, as a result of the interest exchange, become subject to owner liability, without the consent of the owner or member, for the liabilities or obligations of any other person or organization.
