A trust company or state or national bank having trust powers, resulting from merger or consolidation shall, upon filing proof thereof in the probate court, and without a new appointment, succeed to the rights and duties of all predecessor companies, as fiduciary. A purchase of substantially all the assets and assumption of substantially all the liabilities is a merger for the purposes of sections 2109.01 to 2109.58 , inclusive, of the Revised Code. In all cases of merger or consolidation the bond given by any predecessor fiduciary shall remain liable for all acts of the successor fiduciary except as to any surety released upon application as provided in section 2109.18 of the Revised Code.
