220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0112 Corporate Stock Transfers. If a corporation owning less than 50 percent of another corporation obtains control of the other corporation through no action on its part, there is a change in ownership requiring reappraisal. The fact that the controlled corporation caused the change by redeeming outstanding shares owned by others, a reverse stock split, etc., is of no significance. The statute does not require the person or entity obtaining control to actually purchase stock itself; nor must there be an intent to obtain control. The fact of the change in control is determinative. C 4/1/1985.
