(805 ILCS 5/7.90)
(a) Unless otherwise provided in the articles of incorporation, a shareholder who executes and delivers to the corporation a written instrument irrevocably waiving the right (i) to vote any shares held by such shareholder, whether for the election of directors or otherwise, (ii) to be a director or officer of the corporation, and (iii) in any other manner to control, directly or indirectly, corporate actions or the election or removal of any director or officer of the corporation, and who at the time of such waiver is not a director or officer of the corporation, shall have no fiduciary duty to the corporation or any of its shareholders arising out of the fact that such person is a shareholder of the corporation. No such waiver shall affect any breach of fiduciary duty arising prior to the effective date of the waiver.
(b) The corporation shall give prompt notice of such waiver to the remaining shareholders, except that no such notice need be given by a corporation that has shares listed on a national securities exchange or regularly traded in a market maintained by one or more members of a national or affiliated securities association.
(c) The waiver referred to in this Section shall not affect any other rights or obligations of the shareholder, including but not limited to the rights under Sections 7.80, 11.65, 11.70, 12.55 and 12.56 of this Act.
(d) Shares that cannot be voted because of a waiver under this Section shall not be counted in determining the number of shares necessary for a quorum or for shareholder action under Section 7.60 of this Act. A waiver under this Section shall not apply to any transferee of the shares.
(e) The waiver referred to in this Section is specifically enforceable in accordance with the principles of equity.
(f) This Section is not intended to describe or suggest the circumstances under which any fiduciary duty arises or exists, including with respect to any shareholder who fails to make a waiver under this Section.
