(b)

unless stated in a certificate of amendment so filed, a certificate of the corporation shall be signed, verified and filed as provided in section one thousand three stating the number of shares of each class or series thereof so cancelled, the manner of reacquisition thereof and, if converted shares, the number of shares of each class or series thereof into which the same were converted, and such other information with respect thereto as the superintendent may require.
