§1-730.  Voting trusts

A.  One or more shareholders may create a voting trust, conferring on a trustee the right to vote or otherwise act for them, by signing an agreement setting out the provisions of the trust, which may include anything consistent with its purpose, and transferring their shares to the trustee.  When a voting trust agreement is signed, the trustee shall prepare a list of the names and addresses of all voting trust beneficial owners, together with the number and class of shares each transferred to the trust, and deliver copies of the list and agreement to the corporation's principal office.

B.  A voting trust becomes effective on the date the first shares subject to the trust are registered in the trustee's name.

C.  Limits, if any, on the duration of a voting trust shall be as set forth in the voting trust.  The duration of a voting trust that became effective before January 1, 2015, may not exceed fifteen years, but may stipulate that it may be extended under the same terms and conditions for an additional period not to exceed ten years from the date of the expiration of the initial term.  The limitation imposed by this Subsection on the duration of a voting trust that became effective before January 1, 2015, may be modified or eliminated by unanimous agreement of the parties to the voting trust.
