or existence is otherwise terminated or cancelled in the jurisdiction of
its incorporation or when such foreign corporation is merged into or

corporation attesting to the occurrence of any such event or a certified
copy of an order or decree of a court of such jurisdiction directing the
dissolution of such foreign corporation, the termination of its
existence or the cancellation of its authority shall be delivered to the
department of state. The filing of the certificate, order or decree
shall have the same effect as the filing of a certificate of surrender

certificate, order or decree and he shall promptly cause a copy of any
such process to be mailed by certified mail, return receipt requested,
to such foreign corporation at the post office address on file in his or
her office specified for such purpose or a notice of the fact that
process against the corporation has been served on him or her to be
emailed to the foreign corporation at the email address on file in his
or her office specified for such purpose. The post office address and/or
email address may be changed by signing and delivering to the department
of state a certificate of change setting forth the statements required
under section 1310 (Certificate of change; contents) to effect a change
in the post office address and/or email address under subparagraph (a)
