655.412 Merger and consolidation.--
(1) With the approval of the office, any capital stock financial institution may be merged into or consolidated with another capital stock financial institution or a mutual financial institution. The provisions of ss. 658.41-658.45 govern any merger or consolidation pursuant to this subsection; and, for this purpose, references therein to banks and trust companies are deemed to refer to capital stock financial institutions.

For this purpose, references in s. 665.033(1) and (2) to associations are deemed to refer also to credit unions; but, in the case of a credit union, the provision therein concerning proxy statements does not apply.
