(A) Any merger or consolidation of the resident domestic corporation or any subsidiary with: (i) any interested shareholder; or (ii) any other corporation, whether or not itself an interested shareholder, which is, or after the merger or consolidation would be, an affiliate of an interested shareholder that was an interested shareholder prior to the consummation of the transaction other than as a result of the interested shareholder's ownership of the resident domestic corporation's voting stock;

(B) Any sale, lease, transfer, or other disposition, other than in the ordinary course of business, in one transaction or in a series of transactions, to any interested shareholder or any affiliate or associate of any interested shareholder, other than the resident domestic corporation or any of its subsidiaries, of any assets of the resident domestic corporation or any subsidiary having, measured at the time the transaction or transactions are approved by the board of directors of the resident domestic corporation, an aggregate book value as of the end of the resident domestic corporation's most recently ended fiscal quarter of 10 percent or more of the net assets of the resident domestic corporation as of the end of such fiscal quarter;

(C) The issuance or transfer by the resident domestic corporation, or any subsidiary, in one transaction or a series of transactions, of any equity securities of the resident domestic corporation or any subsidiary which have an aggregate market value of 5 percent or more of the total market value of the outstanding common and preferred shares of the resident domestic corporation whose shares are being issued to any interested shareholder or any affiliate or associate of any interested shareholder, other than the resident domestic corporation or any of its subsidiaries, except pursuant to the exercise of warrants or rights to purchase securities offered pro rata to all holders of the resident domestic corporation's voting shares or any other method affording substantially proportionate treatment to the holders of voting shares, and except pursuant to the exercise or conversion of securities exercisable for or convertible into shares of the resident domestic corporation, or any subsidiary, which securities were outstanding prior to the time that any interested shareholder became such;

(D) The adoption of any plan or proposal for the liquidation or dissolution of the resident domestic corporation;

(E) Any reclassification of securities, including any reverse stock split, or recapitalization of the resident domestic corporation, or any merger or consolidation of the resident domestic corporation with any of its subsidiaries, which has the effect, directly or indirectly, of increasing by 5 percent or more the proportionate amount of the outstanding shares of any class or series of equity securities of the resident domestic corporation or any subsidiary which is directly or indirectly beneficially owned by any interested shareholder or any affiliate of any interested shareholder;

(F) Any receipt by the interested shareholder, or any affiliate or associate of the interested shareholder, other than in the ordinary course of business, of the benefit, directly or indirectly (except proportionately as a shareholder of the corporation), of any loans, advances, guarantees, pledges, or other financial benefits or assistance or any tax credits or other tax advantages provided by or through the resident domestic corporation or any of its subsidiaries; or

(G) Any share exchange with (i) any interested shareholder or (ii) any other corporation, whether or not itself an interested shareholder, which is, or after the share exchange would be, an affiliate of an interested shareholder that was an interested shareholder prior to the consummation of the transaction;

(2) For purposes of this part and Part 2 of this article, the presumption of "control" created by paragraph (7) of Code Section 14-2-1110 shall not apply where such person holds voting stock, in good faith and not for the purpose of circumventing this part or Part 2 of this article, as an agent, bank, broker, nominee, custodian, or trustee for one or more owners who do not individually or as a group have control of the corporation; and
