The amendments to Sections 204 and 205 would become effective with respect to resolutions adopted by the board ratifying defective corporate acts or stock on or after August 1, 2015. The amendments to Section 262 would become effective with respect to agreements of merger or consolidation entered into on or after August 1, 2015.
