A.  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.  The 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.

B.  The shareholders' list must be available for inspection by any shareholder, beginning two business days after notice of the meeting is given for which the list was prepared and continuing through the meeting, at the corporation's principal office or at a place identified in the meeting notice in the city where the meeting will be held.  A shareholder, or the shareholder's agent or attorney, is entitled on written demand to inspect and, subject to the requirements of R.S. 12:1-1602(C) other than the required percentage and duration of ownership of shares, to copy the list, during regular business hours and at the shareholder's expense, during the period it is available for inspection.

C.  The corporation shall make the shareholders' list 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.

D.  If the corporation refuses to allow a shareholder, or the shareholder's agent or attorney, to inspect the shareholders' list before or at the meeting, or copy the list as permitted by Subsection B of this Section, the district court of the parish where a corporation's principal office or, if none in this state, its registered office, is located, on application of the shareholder, may in a summary proceeding 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.

E.  Refusal or failure to prepare or make available the shareholders' list does not affect the validity of action taken at the meeting.
