(a) The name of the corporation;
(b) The date dissolution was authorized;
(c) If dissolution was approved by the shareholders, a statement that the proposal to dissolve was duly approved by the shareholders in the manner required by this chapter and by the articles of incorporation.
(2) The articles of dissolution shall take effect at the effective date determined pursuant to s. 607.0123. A corporation is dissolved upon the effective date of its articles of dissolution.
(3) For purposes of ss. 607.1401-607.1410, the term “dissolved corporation” means a corporation whose articles of dissolution have become effective and includes a successor entity. Further, for the purposes of this subsection, the term “successor entity” includes a trust, receivership, or other legal entity governed by the laws of this state to which the remaining assets and liabilities of a dissolved corporation are transferred and which exists solely for the purposes of prosecuting and defending suits by or against the dissolved corporation, thereby enabling the dissolved corporation to settle and close the business of the dissolved corporation, to dispose of and convey the property of the dissolved corporation, to discharge the liabilities of the dissolved corporation, and to distribute to the dissolved corporation’s shareholders any remaining assets, but not for the purpose of continuing the activities and affairs for which the dissolved corporation was organized.
