(a) Subject to Subsection (b), the holders of the majority of the shares entitled to vote at a meeting of the shareholders of a real estate investment trust that are present or represented by proxy at the meeting are a quorum for the consideration of a matter to be presented at that meeting.
(b) The certificate of formation of a real estate investment trust may provide that a quorum is present only if:
(1) the holders of a specified portion of the shares that is greater than the majority of the shares entitled to vote are represented at the meeting in person or by proxy; or
(2) the holders of a specified portion of the shares that is less than the majority but not less than one-third of the shares entitled to vote are represented at the meeting in person or by proxy.
(c) Unless provided by the certificate of formation or bylaws of the real estate investment trust, after a quorum is present at a meeting of shareholders, the shareholders may conduct business properly brought before the meeting until the meeting is adjourned. The subsequent withdrawal from the meeting of a shareholder or the refusal of a shareholder present at or represented by proxy at the meeting to vote does not negate the presence of a quorum at the meeting.
(d) Unless provided by the certificate of formation or bylaws, the shareholders of the real estate investment trust at a meeting at which a quorum is not present may adjourn the meeting until the time and to the place as may be determined by a vote of the holders of the majority of the shares who are present or represented by proxy at the meeting.
