Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing R


Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

As a consequence of the death on November 10, 2013 of John F. Bard, a member of the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Weight Watchers International, Inc. (the "Company") and Chairman of its Audit Committee, on November 14, 2013, the Company received notice from the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") that it is deficient in meeting Section 303A.07(a) of the NYSE Listed Company Manual, which requires three members to serve on the Company's Audit Committee. On November 15, 2013, the Company submitted to the NYSE an Interim Written Affirmation regarding the reduction of the number of directors serving on the Company's Audit Committee from three to two due to Mr. Bard's death. The Company intends to cure the deficiency by appointing an additional independent director to the Board and Audit Committee within the six-month grace period provided by the NYSE when the deficiency results from the death of a director.



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

Effective November 14, 2013, the Board amended and restated the Company's Amended and Restated Bylaws (the "Amended and Restated Bylaws"). Article II,
Section 2.1 (General Powers and Number) of the Amended and Restated Bylaws was amended to permit the number of directors to be increased or decreased, subject to the minimum and maximum number of Board members set forth in the Amended and Restated Bylaws, by resolution of the Board. Previously, an amendment of the Amended and Restated Bylaws was required in order to increase or decrease the size of the Board. In addition, in connection with the amendment to Article II,
Section 2.1, the Board adopted a conforming amendment to Article II, Section 2.8 (Quorum) of the Amended and Restated Bylaws. Upon effectiveness of the amendments to the Amended and Restated Bylaws, the Board approved a resolution to eliminate the vacancy resulting from Mr. Bard's death by reducing the size of the Board from nine to eight members.

The foregoing description of the amendments is qualified in its entirety by the text of the Amended and Restated Bylaws, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
