17-78-306.Effect of interest exchange. (a) When an interest exchange becomes effective:

(1) The interests in the acquired entity that are the subject of the interest exchange cease to exist or are converted or exchanged and the interest holders of those interests are entitled only to the rights provided to them under the agreement of interest exchange and to any appraisal rights they have under K.S.A. 2012 Supp. 17-78-109, and amendments thereto, and the acquired entity's organic law;

(2) the acquiring entity becomes the interest holder of the interests in the acquired entity stated in the agreement of interest exchange to be acquired by the acquiring entity;

(3) the public organic document, if any, of the acquired entity is amended as provided in the certificate of interest exchange and is binding on its interest holders; and

(4) the private organic rules of the acquired entity that are to be in a record, if any, are amended to the extent provided in the agreement of interest exchange and are binding on and enforceable by:

(A) Its interest holders; and

(B) in the case of an acquired entity that is not a corporation, any other person that is a party to an agreement that is part of the acquired entity's private organic rules.

(b) Except as otherwise provided in the organic law or organic rules of the acquired entity, the interest exchange does not give rise to any rights that an interest holder, governor or third party would otherwise have upon a dissolution, liquidation or winding-up of the acquired entity.

(c) When an interest exchange becomes effective, a person that did not have interest holder liability with respect to the acquired entity and that becomes subject to interest holder liability with respect to a domestic entity as a result of the interest exchange has interest holder liability only to the extent provided by the organic law of the entity and only for those liabilities that arise after the interest exchange becomes effective.

(d) When an interest exchange becomes effective, the interest holder liability of a person that ceases to hold an interest in a domestic acquired entity with respect to which the person had interest holder liability is as follows:

(1) The interest exchange does not discharge any interest holder liability under the organic law of the domestic acquired entity to the extent the interest holder liability arose before the interest exchange became effective;

(2) the person does not have interest holder liability under the organic law of the domestic acquired entity for any liability that arises after the interest exchange becomes effective;

(3) the organic law of the domestic acquired entity continues to apply to the release, collection or discharge of any interest holder liability preserved under paragraph (1) as if the interest exchange had not occurred; and

(4) the person has whatever rights of contribution from any other person as are provided by the organic law or organic rules of the domestic acquired entity with respect to any interest holder liability preserved under paragraph (1) as if the interest exchange had not occurred.
