§

4.03. Registered name

(a) A foreign

corporation may register its corporate name, or its corporate name with any

addition required by section 15.06 of this title, if the name is

distinguishable in the records of the Secretary of State from the corporate or

business names that are not available under section 4.01(b)(3) of this title.

(b) A foreign

corporation registers its corporate name, or its corporate name with any

addition required by section 15.06 of this title, by delivering to the

Secretary of State for filing an application:

(1) setting

forth its corporate name, or its corporate name with any addition required by

section 15.06 of this title, the state or country and date of its

incorporation, and a brief description of the nature of the business in which

it is engaged; and

(2) accompanied

by a certificate of good standing or a document of similar import from the

state or country of incorporation.

(c) The name is

registered for the applicant's exclusive use upon the effective date of the

application.

(d) A foreign

corporation whose registration is effective may renew it for successive years

by delivering to the Secretary of State for filing a renewal application, which

complies with the requirements of subsection (b) of this section, between

October 1 and December 31 of the preceding year. The renewal application when

filed renews the registration for the following calendar year.

(e) A foreign

corporation whose registration is effective may thereafter qualify as a foreign

corporation under the registered name or consent in writing to the use of that

name by a corporation thereafter incorporated under this title or by another

foreign corporation thereafter authorized to transact business in this State.

The registration terminates when the domestic corporation is incorporated or

the foreign corporation qualifies or consents to the qualification of another

foreign corporation under the registered name. (Added 1993, No. 85, § 2, eff.
