D. The date of dissolution of the limited liability company, if known, together with the date the certificate of cancellation was filed by the Secretary of State;

E. The name and address of the registered agent of the limited liability company prior to revival.  If the registered agent has resigned or no longer can be located by the limited liability company, the limited liability company shall deliver for filing a form appointing a registered agent as required by Title 5, chapter 6-A, which form must accompany the certificate under this section;

F. The name and address of the party or parties requesting the revival;
