F.S. 607.1402
607.1402 Dissolution by board of directors and shareholders; dissolution by written consent of shareholders.
(1) A corporation’s board of directors may propose dissolution for submission to the shareholders by first adopting a resolution authorizing the dissolution.
(2)(a) For a proposal to dissolve to be adopted, it must be approved by the shareholders pursuant to subsection (5).
(b) In submitting the proposal to dissolve to the shareholders for approval, the board of directors must recommend that the shareholders approve the dissolution, unless:
1. The board of directors determines that because of conflict of interest or other special circumstances it should make no recommendation; or
2. Section 607.0826 applies.
(c) If either subparagraph (b)1. or subparagraph (b)2. applies, the board must inform the shareholders of the basis for its so proceeding without such recommendation.
(3) The board of directors may set conditions for the approval of the proposal for dissolution by shareholders or for the effectiveness of the dissolution.
(4) If the approval of the shareholders is to be given at a meeting, the corporation shall notify, in accordance with s. 607.0705, each shareholder, regardless of whether entitled to vote, of the meeting of shareholders at which the dissolution is to be submitted for approval. The notice must also state that the purpose, or one of the purposes, of the meeting is to consider dissolving the corporation.
(5) Unless the articles of incorporation or the board of directors (acting pursuant to subsection (3)) require a greater vote or a vote by voting groups, the proposal to dissolve to be adopted must be approved by a majority of all the votes entitled to be cast on the proposal to dissolve.
(6) Alternatively, without action of the board of directors, action to dissolve a corporation may be taken by the written consent of the shareholders pursuant to s. 607.0704.
