Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.
(805 ILCS 5/7.30)
(from Ch. 32, par. 7.30)
The officer or agent having charge of the transfer book for shares of a
corporation shall make, within 20 days after the record date for a meeting
of shareholders or 10 days before such meeting, whichever is earlier,
a complete list of the shareholders entitled to vote at such
meeting, arranged in alphabetical order, with the address of and the number
of shares held by each, which list, for a period of 10 days prior to such
meeting, shall be kept on file
and shall be subject to inspection by any shareholder, and to copying at
the shareholder's expense, at the registered office of the corporation at any time during
usual business hours or on a reasonably accessible electronic network, at the corporation's election. If the corporation determines to make the list available on an electronic network, the corporation may take reasonable steps to ensure that such information is available only to shareholders of the corporation. Such list shall also be produced and kept open at the
time and place of the meeting, or on a reasonably accessible electronic network if the meeting will be held solely by means of remote communication, and shall be subject to the inspection of any
shareholder during the whole time of the meeting. The original share ledger
or transfer book, or a duplicate thereof kept in this State, shall be prima
facie evidence as to who are the shareholders entitled to examine such list
or share ledger or transfer book or to vote at any meeting of shareholders.
Failure to comply with the requirements of this Section shall not affect
the validity of any action taken at such meeting.
An officer or agent having charge of the transfer books who shall fail
to prepare the list of shareholders, or keep the same on file for a period
of 10 days, or produce and keep the same open for inspection at the
meeting, as provided in this Section, shall be liable to any shareholder
suffering damage on account of such failure, to the extent of such damage.
