Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year

The Board amended and restated the Company’s Bylaws, effective September 13, 2016, to grant stockholders the right to call a special meeting of stockholders. In adopting this provision, the Board carefully considered the Company’s stockholder base and input received from investors during extensive stockholder engagement. Prior to the adoption of this provision, a special meeting of the stockholders could only be called pursuant to a resolution approved by a majority of the Board.

Article I, Section 2 of the Bylaws has been amended to permit one or more stockholders who own at least 25% of the Company’s common stock to call a special meeting of stockholders, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Bylaws.

Article I, Section 10 and Article I, Section 10A of the Bylaws have been amended, respectively, to make minor updates and clarifications to the requirements for advance notice for annual and special meetings of stockholders, and for proxy access.

In support of the responsibilities and authority of the lead independent director, Article II, Section 4 of the amended and restated Bylaws also adds the right for the lead independent director to call special meetings of the Board.

The amended and restated Bylaws include other minor and conforming updates.

This description of the amendments to the Bylaws is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the Bylaws filed as Exhibit 3.2 to this Report.
