(a) Any other entity may convert to a limited liability company by filing with the department

(2) articles of organization that comply with AS 10.50.075 and that have been signed by one or more persons organizing the conversion.

(b) The certificate of conversion to a limited liability company must state

(1) the date on which and the jurisdiction where the other entity was first created, formed, or incorporated, or otherwise came into being, and, if the other entity has changed its jurisdiction, its jurisdiction immediately before its conversion to a limited liability company;

(2) the name of the other entity immediately before the filing of the certificate of conversion to a limited liability company;

(3) the name of the limited liability company as stated in its articles of organization filed under (a) of this section; and

(4) the future effective date or time, which must be a certain date or a certain time, of the conversion to a limited liability company if the conversion is not to be effective on the filing of the certificate of conversion to a limited liability company and the articles of organization.

(c) On the filing with the department of the certificate of conversion to a limited liability company and the articles of organization, or upon the future effective date or time of the certificate of conversion to a limited liability company and the articles of organization, the other entity is converted to a limited liability company and, after the conversion, is subject to all of the provisions of this chapter, except that, notwithstanding AS 10.50.080 , the existence of the limited liability company is considered to have commenced on the date the other entity commenced its existence in the jurisdiction in which the other entity was first created, formed, or incorporated, or otherwise came into being.

(d) The conversion of any other entity to a limited liability company does not affect any obligation or liability of the other entity incurred before the conversion, or the personal liability of any person that is incurred before the conversion.

(e) When a conversion of any other entity to a limited liability company becomes effective under this section, for all purposes of the laws of this state,

(1) all rights, privileges, and powers of the other entity, all real, personal, and mixed property, all debts due to the other entity, and all other things and causes of action belonging to the other entity, are vested in the limited liability company and are after the conversion, the property of the limited liability company as they were of the other entity;

(2) the title to any real property vested by deed, or otherwise vested, in the other entity does not revert and is not in any way impaired by reason of this chapter;

(3) all rights of creditors and all liens on property of the other entity attach to the limited liability company; and

(4) all debts, liabilities, and duties of the other entity attach to the limited liability company, and may be enforced against it to the same extent as if the debts, liabilities, and duties had been incurred or contracted by the limited liability company.

(f) Unless otherwise agreed, or as required under the applicable law of another state, any other entity that converts to a limited liability company under this section is not required to wind up its affairs or to pay its liabilities and distribute its assets, and the conversion does not constitute a dissolution of the other entity.

(g) Before filing a certificate of conversion to a limited liability company with the department, a limited liability company agreement must be approved in the manner provided for by the document, instrument, agreement, or other writing governing the internal affairs of the other entity and the conduct of its business, or by applicable law, as appropriate.

(h) The provisions of this section may not be construed to limit the accomplishment of a change in the law governing, or of the domicile of, any other entity to this state by any other means provided for in a limited liability company agreement or other agreement, or, as otherwise permitted by law, including by the amendment of a limited liability company agreement or other agreement.

(i) A corporation may convert to a limited liability company under this section if the corporation is a subsidiary corporation that is owned directly or indirectly by one or more parent corporations.

(j) In this section, "other entity" means a business trust, an association, a real estate investment trust, a common law trust, or any other unincorporated business, including a general partnership, a registered limited liability partnership, a limited partnership, a limited liability limited partnership, a foreign limited liability company, and a corporation as allowed under (i) of this section.
