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


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

Effective December 16, 2013, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Hologic, Inc. (the "Company") adopted an amendment (the "Amendment") to the Company's Fourth Amended and Restated By-laws, as amended (the "By-laws"). The Amendment contains revisions to the following sections of the By-laws:

Section 1.2. Amended to add new subsections 1.2(A), 1.2(B) and 1.2(C) and a process by which stockholders may call special meetings of stockholders provided that the meeting request is from at least 25% of the outstanding shares and that the requesting stockholders meet certain other ownership, procedural and informational requirements. Also amended to clarify that the Board can postpone, reschedule and, in certain circumstances, cancel special meetings of stockholders.

Section 1.7. Amended to set forth a director resignation policy whereby any nominee for director in an uncontested election who receives a greater number of votes "withheld" than votes "for" in such election must promptly tender his or her resignation to the Board, which will consider whether to accept the resignation. The amendment requires the remaining members of the Board, through a process managed by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and excluding the director nominee in question, to determine whether to accept such resignation. Such determination must be made within 90 days after the certification of the election results and be publicly disclosed by press release and the filing of appropriate disclosure with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Section 1.7 was also amended to clarify that the plurality voting standard, as modified by the above, relates only to the election of directors.

The Amendment also includes mechanical, procedural, conforming and clarifying changes to the By-laws. The above description of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and it is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amendment, a copy of which is attached to this report as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
