F.S. 607.605
607.605 Termination of benefit corporation status.
(1) A benefit corporation may terminate its status as such and cease to be subject to this part by amending its articles of incorporation to delete the provision required under s. 607.603 or s. 607.604. The amendment must be adopted by the minimum status vote.
(2) A plan of merger, conversion, or share exchange which has the effect of terminating the status of a corporation as a benefit corporation must be adopted by the minimum status vote. A sale, lease, exchange, or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of a benefit corporation is not effective unless the transaction is approved by the minimum status vote. However, a minimum status vote is not required if the transaction is in the usual and regular course of business, is pursuant to court order, or is a sale pursuant to which all or a substantial portion of the net proceeds of the sale will be distributed to the shareholders within 1 year after the date of the sale.
(3) If a corporation’s status as a benefit corporation is terminated pursuant to subsection (1) or subsection (2), shareholders of the corporation are entitled to appraisal rights under and pursuant to ss. 607.1301-607.1333.
