Plan of Dissolution of CBA Florida, Inc
PLAN OF DISSOLUTION OF CBA FLORIDA, INC.
This Plan of Dissolution (this “Plan”), dated as of [DATE] (the “Plan Date”), is intended to accomplish the dissolution and winding up of CBA FLORIDA, INC., a Florida corporation (the “Corporation”), in accordance with the Florida Business Corporation Act (the “FBCA”).
1. Approval and Adoption of Plan. The directors of the Corporation (the “Directors”) took action at a meeting duly called and held on February 11, 2020 and voted to propose and recommend to the shareholders of the Corporation (the “Shareholders”) that the Corporation be dissolved. The Directors further included in the proposal to Shareholders the following Plan for winding up and dissolving the Corporation and providing for the liquidation of the Corporation.
The Shareholders of the Corporation met on [DATE] (the “Adoption Date”), and at least a majority of all the votes entitled to be cast approved the dissolution of the Corporation and adopted this Plan as recommended by the Directors. The shareholder authorization permits revocation by action of the board of directors alone, and therefore the Directors may revoke the dissolution without shareholder action.
2. General Authorization. The Directors are authorized, as of the Adoption Date, without further action by Shareholders, to do and perform or cause the officers of the Corporation (the “Officers”), subject to approval of the Directors, to do and perform any and all acts, and to make, execute, deliver, or adopt any and all agreements, resolutions, conveyances, certificates, and other documents of every kind that are deemed necessary, appropriate, or desirable, in the absolute discretion of the Directors, to implement the winding up of the business and affairs of the Corporation according to this Plan, including, but not limited to:
a. Marshalling all of the Corporation’s assets;
b. Selling any, all, or substantially all of the assets of the Corporation;
|c.||Paying all expenses incurred in connection with the implementation of this Plan including, but not limited to, any consulting, professional, legal and other fees and expenses of persons or entities providing services to the Corporation;|
|d.||Satisfying, settling, or rejecting all liabilities, claims, debts, or obligations of the Corporation, whether by payment or by making adequate provisions for payments;|
e. Prosecuting and defending actions or proceedings by or against the Corporation;
|f.||Distributing assets of the Corporation to the Shareholders in the time and manner, and to the fullest extent, permitted by the FBCA; and|
|g.||Filing all final tax returns or other forms, making final payments, and closing any tax accounts or other obligations as required by any local, state or federal law or regulation to effect the winding up of the Corporation’s business and affairs and the dissolution of the Corporation.|
3. Indemnification. The Corporation shall continue to indemnify its Officers, Directors, and employees in accordance with the FBCA, its articles of incorporation, bylaws, any contractual arrangements, and its existing directors’ and officers’ liability insurance policy, for acts and omissions in connection with the Corporation’s dissolution, implementation of this Plan and the winding up of the business and affairs of the Corporation.
