Rs 12:1-725 Quorum And Voting Requirements For Voting Groups

§1-725. Quorum and voting requirements for voting groups

A. Shares entitled to vote as a separate voting group may take action on a matter at

a meeting only if a quorum of those shares exists with respect to that matter. Unless a

provision in the articles of incorporation authorized by R.S. 12:1-727 provides otherwise, a

majority of the votes entitled to be cast on the matter by the voting group constitutes a

quorum of that voting group for action on that matter.

B. Once a share is represented for any purpose at a meeting, it is deemed present for

quorum purposes for the remainder of the meeting and for any adjournment of that meeting

unless a new record date is or must be set for that adjourned meeting.

C. If a quorum exists, action on a matter, other than the election of directors, by a

voting group is approved if the votes cast within the voting group favoring the action exceed

the votes cast opposing the action, unless this Chapter or the articles of incorporation require

a greater number of affirmative votes.

D. [Reserved.]

E. The election of directors is governed by R.S. 12:1-728.

F. Whenever a provision of this Chapter provides for voting of classes or series as

separate voting groups, the rules provided in R.S. 12:1-1004(C) for amendments of articles

of incorporation apply to that provision.

Acts 2014, No. 328, §1, eff. Jan. 1, 2015; Acts 2016, No. 442, §1.
