CONTROL SHARE ACQUISITION ACT
30-1607. Voting rights. (1) Shares referred to in section 30-1603(2), Idaho Code, acquired in a control share acquisition have the same voting rights as were accorded the shares before the control share acquisition but only if and to the extent approved by a resolution of shareholders of the issuing public corporation at a special or annual meeting of shareholders pursuant to section 30-1605, Idaho Code.
(2) The resolution of shareholders must be approved by the affirmative vote of the holders of sixty-six and two-thirds per cent (66 2/3%) of the voting power of all shares entitled to vote excluding all interested shares.
(3) A class or series of shares of the issuing public corporation is entitled to vote separately as a class or series if any provision of the control share acquisition would, if contained in a proposed amendment to the articles of the issuing public corporation, entitle the class or series to vote separately as a class or series.
(4) To have the voting rights accorded by approval of a resolution of shareholders, any proposed control share acquisition not consummated before the time of the shareholder approval must be consummated within one hundred eighty (180) days after the shareholders’ approval.
(5) Any shares referred to in section 30-1603(2), Idaho Code, acquired in a control share acquisition that do not have voting rights accorded to them by approval of a resolution of shareholders shall regain their voting rights on transfer to a person other than the acquiring person or any affiliate or associate of the acquiring person unless the acquisition of the shares by the other person constitutes a control share acquisition, in which case the voting rights of the shares are subject to the provisions of this chapter.
