F.S. 607.0720
607.0720 Shareholders’ list for meeting.
(1) After fixing a record date for a meeting, a corporation shall prepare an alphabetical list of the names of all its shareholders who are entitled to notice of a shareholders’ meeting. If the board of directors fixes a different record date under s. 607.0707(8) to determine the shareholders entitled to vote at the meeting, the corporation must also prepare an alphabetical list of the names of all its shareholders who are entitled to vote at the meeting. Each list must be arranged by voting group, and within each voting group by class or series of shares, and show the address of and number of shares held by each shareholder. This subsection does not require the corporation to include on such list the electronic mail address or other electronic contact information of a shareholder.
(2) The shareholders’ list for notice must be available for inspection by any shareholder for a period of 10 days prior to the meeting or such shorter time as exists between the record date and the meeting and continuing through the meeting at the corporation’s principal office, at a place identified in the meeting notice in the city where the meeting will be held, or at the office of the corporation’s transfer agent or registrar. Any separate shareholders’ list for voting, if different, must be similarly available for inspection promptly after the record date for voting. A shareholder or the shareholder’s agent or attorney is entitled on written demand to inspect and, subject to the requirements of s. 607.1602(3), copy a list during regular business hours and at his, her, or its expense, during the period it is available for inspection.
(3) The corporation shall make the list of shareholders entitled to vote available at the meeting, and any shareholder or the shareholder’s agent or attorney is entitled to inspect the list at any time during the meeting or any adjournment.
(4) The shareholders’ list is prima facie evidence of the identity of shareholders entitled to examine the shareholders’ list or to vote at a meeting of shareholders.
(5) If the requirements of this section have not been substantially complied with or if the corporation refuses to allow a shareholder or the shareholder’s agent or attorney to inspect a shareholders’ list, or copy a list pursuant to subsection (2), before or at the meeting, the meeting shall be adjourned until such requirements are complied with on the demand of any shareholder in person or by proxy who failed to get such access, or, if not adjourned upon such demand and such requirements are not complied with, the circuit court in the applicable county, on application of the shareholder, may summarily order the inspection or copying at the corporation’s expense and may postpone the meeting for which the list was prepared until the inspection or copying is complete.
(6) Refusal or failure to comply with the requirements of this section shall not affect the validity of any action taken at such meeting.
(7) A shareholder may not sell or otherwise distribute any information or records inspected under this section, except to the extent that such use is for a proper purpose as defined in s. 607.1602(3).
