Form 8-K for FLUSHING FINANCIAL CORP


18-Dec-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.

On December 17, 2013, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Flushing Financial Corporation (the "Company") amended the Company's by-laws to adopt a majority vote standard for the election of directors in uncontested elections.

The amended and restated by-laws provide that in uncontested elections, director nominees must be elected by the majority of votes cast at the annual meeting of shareholders. Incumbent directors who fail to receive a majority of votes - and who would otherwise remain in office until a successor is elected under Delaware law - would be required to offer a letter of resignation for consideration by the Board which shall be required to act promptly. Plurality voting will continue to apply if the number of nominees exceeds the number of open director positions. The Board's decision to adopt a majority voting standard for the election of directors in uncontested elections demonstrates the Company's continued commitment to best practices in corporate governance and the best interests of its shareholders.

Item 9.01. Exhibit.

99.1 Press Release dated December 17, 2013

99.2 Amended and Restated by-laws of Flushing Financial Corporation
