(1) A corporation may:
(a) Issue fractions of a share or, in lieu of doing so, pay in money the fair value of fractions of a share;
(b) Make arrangements, or provide reasonable opportunity, for any person entitled to or holding a fractional interest in a share to sell such fractional interest or to purchase such additional fractional interests as may be necessary to acquire a full share;
(c) Issue scrip in registered or bearer form, over the manual or facsimile signature of an officer of the corporation or its agent, entitling the holder to receive a full share upon surrendering enough scrip to equal a full share.
(2) The board of directors may authorize the issuance of scrip subject to any condition, including that:
(a) The scrip will become void if not exchanged for full shares before a specified date; and
(b) The shares for which the scrip is exchangeable may be sold and the proceeds paid to the scripholders.
(3) Each certificate representing scrip must be conspicuously labeled “scrip” and must contain the information required by s. 607.0625.
