Texas Business Organizations Code

Sec. § 21.160
Determination of Consideration for Shares


Subject to Subsection (b), consideration to be received for shares must be determined:


by the board of directors;


by a plan of conversion, if the shares are to be issued by a converted corporation under the plan; or


by a plan of merger, if the shares are to be issued under the plan by a corporation created under the plan.


If the corporation’s certificate of formation reserves to the shareholders the right to determine the consideration to be received for shares without par value, the shareholders shall determine the consideration for those shares before the shares are issued. The board of directors may not determine the consideration for shares under this subsection.


A corporation may dispose of treasury shares for consideration that may be determined by the board of directors.


The amount of the consideration to be received for shares may be determined in accordance with Subsection (a) by the approval of a minimum amount of consideration or a formula to determine that amount. The formula may include or be made dependent on facts ascertainable outside the formula, if the manner in which those facts operate on the formula is clearly or expressly set forth in the formula or in the authorization approving the formula.
