Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Amendments to Articl


Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors;
Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

(e) On January 23, 2014, the shareholders of Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (the "Company") approved an amendment to and restatement of the Company's 1999 Stock Incentive Plan (as so amended and restated, the "Stock Incentive Plan") at the Company's 2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the "Meeting") to: (i) increase the number of shares of common stock reserved for issuance thereunder from 25,600,000 to 29,850,000; (ii) extend the term thereof to November 15, 2023; and (iii) make certain ministerial changes.

The foregoing summary of the Stock Incentive Plan and the amendments approved at the Meeting is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Stock Incentive Plan, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference. For additional information regarding the Stock Incentive Plan, please refer to Proposal No. 2 - Approval of Amendment to and Restatement of the Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. 1999 Stock Incentive Plan, in the Company's Definitive Proxy Statement for the Meeting filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 16, 2013 (the "2014 Proxy Statement").



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

(a) On January 23, 2014, the Company's shareholders approved an amendment to and restatement of the Company's Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (as so amended and restated, the "Amended and Restated Charter") to, among other things, declassify the Company's Board of Directors. As a result of the amendments, directors' present three-year, staggered terms will be phased out and replaced with annual elections beginning at the Company's 2015 annual meeting of shareholders. Directors who have been elected to three-year terms prior to the effectiveness of the amendments, including directors elected at the Meeting, will complete those three-year terms, and thereafter will be eligible for annual re-election such that, following the Company's 2017 annual meeting, the Board will be completely declassified and all directors will be subject to annual election to one-year terms.

Under Delaware law, shareholders may only remove directors of corporations with classified boards for cause. However, in Delaware, directors of corporations without classified boards may be removed with or without cause. Therefore, in conjunction with the declassification of the Board, shareholders also approved an amendment such that any director or the entire Board may be removed with or without cause only after the Board is fully declassified. Prior to such time, removal of any director or the entire Board will continue to require cause.

The foregoing summary of the Amended and Restated Charter and the amendments approved at the Meeting is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Amended and Restated Charter, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated herein by reference. For additional information regarding the Amended and Restated Charter, please refer to Proposal No. 5 - Approval of Amendment to the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Company to Declassify the Board, in the 2014 Proxy Statement.

In addition, in connection with the foregoing, the vacancy and director resignation provisions of the Company's Amended and Restated Bylaws were amended to reflect the phased approach to declassifying the Company's Board of Directors. The foregoing summary of the Amended and Restated Bylaws and the amendments thereto is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Amended and Restated Bylaws, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.2 and incorporated herein by reference.
