ITEM 3.03. MODIFICATIONS TO RIGHTS OF SECURITY HOLDERS.

On June 24, 2010, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Mentor Graphics Corporation (the "Company") adopted the Rights Agreement between the Company and American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, as rights agent (the "Rights Agreement"). On December 23, 2011, the Board approved, and the Company entered into, an Amended and Restated Rights Agreement with American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, as rights agent (the "First A&R Agreement"). On June 28, 2013, the Board approved, and the Company entered into, a Second Amended and Restated Rights Agreement with American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, as rights agent (the "Second A&R Agreement"). The Second A&R Agreement modifies the existing terms of the First A&R Agreement in the following ways: (i) the expiration date of rights issued pursuant to the Rights Agreement is extended to June 30, 2015, (ii) the ownership threshold for a person to become an "Acquiring Person" and trigger consequences under the Rights Agreement is increased for certain types of "passive institutional investors" from 15% of the Company's common stock to 20% (with no change to the 15% triggering threshold for other acquirers), (iii) the exercise price per right issued pursuant to the Rights Agreement is increased from $65 to $90, and (iv) a qualifying offer provision is added, which requires the Company's Board of Directors to call a special meeting for a stockholder vote on a pending offer to acquire the Company, provided the offer meets certain qualifying criteria.

The foregoing summary of the revisions reflected in the Second A&R Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Second A&R Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 4.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference. A copy of the Rights Agreement and a summary of its material terms were filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form 8-K on June 25, 2010 (incorporated herein by reference by Exhibit 4.2).
