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

At its meeting held on December 17, 2013, the Board of Directors amended the Company's Bylaws. Effective immediately, the amendment provides for a majority voting standard in uncontested director elections, and raises the director retirement age to 72. With respect to the majority voting standard, the amendment provides that a director nominee in an uncontested election is not elected unless he or she receives more votes "for" election than votes "against" election. A plurality voting standard remains applicable to any election in which there are more candidates nominated than there are director seats to be filled.
In connection with this amendment, the Board also revised its Board of Directors Guidelines on Significant Corporate Governance Issues to (1) require a director who fails to receive the required number of votes in an uncontested election to tender his or her resignation, and (2) reflect the change in director retirement age. The revised Bylaws and Governance Guidelines, reflecting each of these changes, are attached hereto as exhibits.
