SECTION 12.01. Company May Consolidate, etc., Only on Certain Terms.
The Company shall not consolidate with or merge with or into any other Person, or convey, or otherwise transfer, or lease, all or substantially all of the Principal Property to any Person, unless:
(a) the Person formed by such consolidation or into which the Company is merged or the Person which acquires by conveyance or other transfer, or which leases, all or substantially all of the Principal Property shall be a corporation, shall be organized and existing under the laws of the United States, any state thereof or the District of Columbia (such corporation being hereinafter sometimes called the “Successor Corporation”) and shall execute and deliver to the Trustee an indenture supplemental hereto, in form reasonably satisfactory to the Trustee, which in the case of a consolidation, merger, conveyance or other transfer, or in the case of a lease if the term thereof extends beyond the last Stated Maturity of the Bonds then Outstanding, contains an assumption by the Successor Corporation of the due and punctual payment of the principal of and premium, if any, and interest, if any, on all the Bonds then Outstanding and the performance and observance of every covenant and condition of this Indenture to be performed or observed by the Company, and
(b) in the case of a lease, such lease shall be made expressly subject to termination by the Company or by the Trustee at any time during the continuance of an Event of Default, and
(c) immediately after giving effect to such transaction and treating any indebtedness which becomes an obligation of the Company as a result of such transaction as having been incurred by the Company at the time of such transaction, no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing; and
(d) the Company has delivered to the Trustee an Officer’s Certificate and an Opinion of Counsel, each stating that the merger, consolidation, conveyance, lease or transfer, as the case may be, fully complies with all provisions of this Indenture; provided, however, that the delivery of such an Officer’s Certificate and Opinion of Counsel shall not be required with respect to any merger, consolidation, conveyance, transfer or lease between the Company and any of its wholly-owned Subsidiaries.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company may merge or consolidate with or transfer all or substantially all of its assets to an Affiliate that has no significant assets or liabilities and was formed solely for the purpose of changing the jurisdiction of organization of the Company or the form of organization of the Company or for the purpose of forming a holding company; provided that the amount of indebtedness of the Company is not increased thereby; and provided, further that the successor assumes all obligations of the Company under this Indenture.
