(a) In all cases where a charter of any corporation incorporated by an Act of the General Assembly or by a certificate of the Secretary of State has expired and such corporation has continued in business in ignorance of such expiration, such charter may be revived in the same manner as original charters are procured from the Secretary of State at any time within ten years from the date of expiration, provided that a majority of the stockholders of the corporation at a regular or special meeting, notice of the purpose of the meeting having been given to the stockholders, shall have adopted a resolution asking for such revival and stating that all the stockholders shall be bound by the resolution.
(b) Upon the issuance by the Secretary of State of a certificate reviving the corporation, all the property and other rights of the corporation shall continue in the corporation as so revived and the acts of such corporation in the period between the date of expiration and date of revival shall be thereby confirmed and held as the acts of the original corporation so revived. The corporation shall continue from the date of issuance of the certificate by the Secretary of State for the full period allowed by law for such corporations.
