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


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

On July 29, 2013, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Monster Beverage Corporation (the "Company") adopted the Second Amended and Restated Bylaws of the Company (the "Amended and Restated Bylaws"). The Amended and Restated Bylaws were effective upon approval by the Board. The Amended and Restated Bylaws were adopted to implement the following primary changes:

Forum of Adjudication for Disputes. A new Article VIII was added to the Company's Amended and Restated Bylaws which provides that, unless the Company consents in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware will be the sole and exclusive forum for
(a) any derivative action or proceeding brought on behalf of the Company,
(b) any action asserting a claim of breach of a fiduciary duty owed by any director, officer or other employee of the Company to the Company or the Company's stockholders, (c) any action asserting a claim arising pursuant to any provision of the Delaware General Corporation Law, or (d) any action asserting a claim governed by the internal affairs doctrine. This article further provides that any person or entity purchasing or otherwise acquiring or holding any interest in shares of capital stock of the Company is deemed to have notice of and consented to the foregoing provision.

Notice of Stockholder Business and Nominations. The provision of the Company's Amended and Restated Bylaws regarding advance notice of stockholder business and nominations (Article I, Section 14) was amended to require, in addition to the preexisting requirements, disclosure of (a) agreements of the proposing stockholder and certain related parties in connection with the proposed nomination or proposal of other business, (b) agreements relating to any derivative or short positions, hedging transactions and other similar positions of such stockholder and related parties and (c) any other information relating to such stockholder or related parties required to be included in a proxy statement, in each case in order to promote full disclosure of the proposing stockholder's economic interests in the Company. The advance notice provision was also amended to require the proposing stockholder to update the information provided as of the applicable record date.

The Amended and Restated Bylaws also include non-substantive changes and other technical changes intended to update or clarify certain provisions.

The foregoing description is only a summary of certain changes made to the Company's Bylaws and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amended and Restated Bylaws, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
