Section 10A-2-7.05

Notice of meeting.

(a) A corporation, or, in the case of a special meeting called pursuant to Section 10A-2-7.02(a)(3), the persons calling the meeting, shall notify shareholders in writing of the date, time, and place of each annual and special shareholders' meeting no fewer than 10 nor more than 60 days before the meeting date. Unless this chapter or the articles of incorporation require otherwise, the corporation, or other persons calling the meeting, are required to give notice only to shareholders entitled to vote at the meeting. Notwithstanding the provisions of this section or any other provisions of this chapter, the stock or bonded indebtedness of a corporation shall not be increased at a meeting unless notice of the meeting shall have been given as may be required by Section 234 of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as the same may be amended from time to time.

(b) Unless this chapter or the articles of incorporation require otherwise, notice of an annual meeting need not include a statement of the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called.

(c) Notice of a special meeting must include a statement of the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called.

(d) If not otherwise fixed under Section 10A-2-7.03 or 10A-2-7.07, the record date for determining shareholders entitled to notice of and to vote at an annual or special shareholders' meeting is the day before the first notice is delivered to shareholders.

(e) Unless the bylaws require otherwise, if an annual or special shareholders' meeting is adjourned to a different date, time, or place, notice need not be given of the new date, time, or place if the new date, time, or place is announced at the meeting before adjournment. If a new record date for the adjourned meeting is or must be fixed under Section 10A-2-7.07, however, notice of the adjourned meeting must be given under this section to persons who are shareholders as of the new record date.
