(c) discharging or making provision for discharging its liabilities;
(d) making distributions of its remaining assets among its shareholders according to their interests; and
(e) doing every other act necessary to wind up and liquidate its business and affairs.
(2) Dissolution of a corporation does not:

(c) subject its directors or officers to standards of conduct different from those prescribed in part 8 of this chapter;
(i) quorum or voting requirements for its board of directors or shareholders;

If the board of directors does not fix a record date for determining shareholders entitled to a distribution in liquidation, the record date is the date the board of directors authorizes the distribution in liquidation.
