28-Jun-2013

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


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

Effective June 26, 2013, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the "Company") adopted amended and restated by-laws (the "Restated By-Laws"). The primary change effected by adoption of the Restated By-laws was to extend the mandatory indemnification provisions to cover officers and directors of the Company's subsidiaries, and to clarify the scope of the indemnification for all indemnitees. The Company will now be required to provide indemnification and expense advancement for directors and officers of the Company and its subsidiaries with respect to claims, suits, and other proceedings to which they are made a party in their capacity as officers, directors and employees of the Company or any of its subsidiaries, subject to the conditions for indemnification set forth in the Restated By-laws. The Company may, at the discretion of its Board of Directors, provide indemnification and expense advancement for other employees and agents of the Company or any of its subsidiaries. For purposes of the indemnification provisions, all indemnitees of the Company will be deemed to be directors or officers of the Company subject to the limitations of Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law.

The foregoing description of the Restated By-Laws does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Restated By-Laws, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated into this Item 5.03 by reference.
