Action on plan of domestication by a domestic corporation

In the case of a domestic corporation:

A. The board of directors of the corporation shall adopt the plan of domestication.

B. After adopting the plan of domestication the board of directors shall submit the plan of domestication for approval by the shareholders.

C. For the plan of domestication to be approved:

1. The board of directors shall recommend the plan to the shareholders unless the board of directors determines that because of conflicts of interest or other special circumstances it should make no recommendation and communicates the basis of its determination to the shareholders with the plan; and

2. The shareholders shall approve the plan as provided in subsection F.

D. The board of directors may condition its submission of the plan of domestication to the shareholders on any basis.

E. The corporation shall notify each shareholder, whether or not entitled to vote, of the proposed shareholders’ meeting in accordance with § 13.1-658 at which the plan of domestication is to be submitted for approval. The notice shall state that a purpose of the meeting is to consider the plan and shall contain or be accompanied by a copy of the plan.

F. Unless this chapter or the board of directors, acting pursuant to subsection D, requires a greater vote, the plan of domestication shall be approved by each voting group entitled to vote on the plan by more than two-thirds of all the votes entitled to be cast by that voting group. The articles of incorporation may provide for a greater or lesser vote than that provided for in this subsection or a vote by separate voting groups so long as the vote provided for is not less than a majority of all the votes cast on the plan by each voting group entitled to vote on the plan at a meeting at which a quorum of the voting group exists.
