19-Apr-2013

Amendments to Articles of Inc. or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year,


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

(a) The certificate of incorporation of People's United Financial, Inc. (the "Company") has been amended and restated effective April 18, 2013 in accordance with the information presented in the Company's definitive proxy statement for the Company's 2013 annual meeting of shareholders. A copy of the Company's Third Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation will be filed as an exhibit to the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2013.

The Bylaws of the Company have been amended and restated effective April 18, 2013 to:

specifically permit notices of meetings of shareholders and of directors to be given electronically (Sections 2.04 and 4.08);

provide that the Chief Executive Officer rather than the Chairman of the Board shall act as chairman of all meetings of shareholders (Section 2.08);

replace references to specifically named board committees with references to functional descriptions of board committees (Sections 2.12 and 5.02);

provide that the full board will act as a nominating committee in the event the board has not delegated that function to a board committee (Sections 2.12 and 4.13);

add the Chief Executive Officer as an authorized signatory for certificates representing shares of the Company's stock (Section 3.01);

clarify that the transfer of shares of Company stock not represented by certificates will be governed by procedures prescribed by the Company's transfer agent in lieu of the surrender of stock certificates (Section 3.04);

substitute a more general description of certain affiliations that will disqualify an individual from serving as a director of the Company for the more specific prohibition based on service as a director of another financial institution (Section 4.02);

relocate the section relating to the position of Chairman of the Board from Article VI (Officers) to Article IV (Board of Directors), in view of the requirement that the Chairman be an independent (non-executive) director (Section 4.03 and former Section 3, Article VI);

eliminate all references to different classes of directors (Section 4.13);

clarify that any committee established by action of the board may be eliminated by subsequent board action to that effect (Sections 5.01 and 5.02);

eliminate unnecessary specific references to titles of certain junior corporate officers (Sections 6.01 and former Section 6, Article VI);

more clearly designate the group of senior officers whose compensation is to be fixed by the full board rather than by a committee of the board (Section 6.09);

permit directors to waive advance notice of proposed Bylaw amendments (Article VIII); and

effect a variety of non-substantive changes for consistency and clarity of format (various sections).


A marked copy of the Company's Seventh Amended and Restated Bylaws, reflecting the amendments summarized above, is being filed herewith as Exhibit 3.2. Additions to the text are underlined, while deletions are marked by striking through the deleted text. Changes in numbering format and capitalization have not been marked.
