Sec. § 82.5239
Defaulting corporations: Reinstatement or revival under old or new name; regulations.


Except as otherwise provided in subsection 2, if a foreign nonprofit corporation applies to reinstate or revive its charter but its name has been legally reserved or acquired by another artificial person formed, organized, registered or qualified pursuant to the provisions of this title and that name is on file with the Office of the Secretary of State or reserved in the Office of the Secretary of State pursuant to the provisions of this title, the foreign nonprofit corporation must in its application for reinstatement or revival submit in writing to the Secretary of State some other name under which it desires its existence to be reinstated or revived. If that name is distinguishable from all other names reserved or otherwise on file, the Secretary of State shall reinstate or revive the foreign nonprofit corporation under that new name.


If the applying foreign nonprofit corporation submits the written, acknowledged consent of the artificial person having a name, or who has reserved a name, which is not distinguishable from the old name of the applying foreign nonprofit corporation or a new name it has submitted, it may be reinstated or revived under that name.


For the purposes of this section, a proposed name is not distinguishable from a name on file or reserved solely because one or the other contains distinctive lettering, a distinctive mark, a trademark or a trade name, or any combination thereof.


The Secretary of State may adopt regulations that interpret the requirements of this section.
