Tex. Gov't Code Section 4008.059
Requirements of Rescission Offer to Sellers


A rescission offer is sufficient for purposes of Section 4008.062 (Statute of Limitations)(c) only if the offer meets the requirements of this section.


The offer must include financial and other information material to the offeree’s decision whether to accept the offer. The offer may not contain an untrue statement of a material fact or an omission to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements made, in light of the circumstances under which they are made, not misleading.


The offeror shall deposit the securities in escrow in a state or national bank doing business in this state, or in another bank approved by the commissioner.


The terms of the offer must be the same, excluding costs and attorney’s fees, as the seller would recover on rescission under Section 4008.056 (Rescission)(b).


The offer must state:


the terms of the offer, as determined under Subsection (d), which must be given:


to the extent practicable, in terms of a specified number and kind of securities and a specified rate of interest for a period starting at a specified date; and


to the extent necessary, in terms of specified elements that are known to the offeree but not to the offeror, subject to the provision of reasonable evidence by the offeree;


the name and address of the bank at which the terms of the offer will be carried out;


that the offeree will receive the securities within a specified number of days that is not more than 30 days after the date the bank receives, in form reasonably acceptable to the offeror and in compliance with the instructions in the offer:


the amount required by the terms of the offer; and


evidence, if necessary, of elements described by Subdivision (1)(B);


in a conspicuous manner that the offeree may not sue on the offeree’s sale under this subchapter unless:


the offeree accepts the offer but does not receive the securities, in which case the offeree may sue within the time allowed by Section 4008.062 (Statute of Limitations)(c)(1) or (2), as applicable; or


the offeree rejects the offer in writing within 30 days of the date the offeree receives the offer and expressly reserves in the rejection the right to sue, in which case the offeree may sue not later than one year after the date of the rejection;


in reasonable detail, the nature of the violation of this title that occurred or may have occurred; and


any other information the offeror wants to include.
