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 BB&T Corporation (the "Company") approved certain amendments to the Company's Bylaws (the "Bylaws"). The amendments include the following:

Proposed revisions to Article III, Section 3 (Election of Directors) providing that directors will be elected as provided in revised Article V of the Company's Restated Articles of Incorporation (the "Articles"). The changes to Article III, Section 3 are conditioned upon shareholders approving proposed amendments to Article V of the Articles, implementing a majority vote standard for the election of directors at the Company's 2014 Annual Meeting.

Article V, Section 5 (Chairman of the Board; Vice Chairmen) was renumbered to become Article III, Section 9. Article V pertains to officers of the Company. Chairman of the Board and Vice Chairmen are board positions, not officers of the Company. Article III pertains to directors of the Company.

Modifications to Article IV, Section 7 (Presumption of Assent) to make clear that the written notice of dissent or abstention should be filed with the Corporate Secretary, rather than the Company.

Article VII, Section 2 (Transfer of Shares) has been amended to: (i) reflect the fact that the Company may have certificated and uncertificated shares; and
(ii) make clear that no transfer is effective until it is recorded on the stock transfer records of the Company.

A new Article VIII, Section 7 (Nonexclusivity) has been added to make clear that the indemnification rights under the Bylaws are separate from any similar rights provided under law, agreement or otherwise.

A new Article IX, Section 7 (Voting of Shares of Other Corporations) has been added to specifically provide which officers of the Company have the power to vote the shares of other entities held by the Company, subject to any further direction by the Board or applicable law.

Other non-substantive changes, where appropriate.

A copy of the amended and restated Bylaws is filed as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated herein by reference. The discussion in this Item is qualified in its entirety by reference to such Exhibit.
