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


Item 5.03. Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or By-laws; Change in Fiscal Year.

On July 31, 2014, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Tractor Supply Company
(the "Company"), a Delaware corporation, approved an amendment (the "Amendment")
to the Company's Fourth Amended and Restated By-laws (the "Fourth Restated By-laws") (the Amendment together with the Fourth Restated By-laws, the "Restated By-laws"). Effective immediately, the Restated By-laws provide for a majority voting standard in uncontested director elections. The majority voting standard provision provides that a director nominee in an uncontested election is not elected unless he or she receives a majority of the votes cast by the shares present in person or represented by proxy at the meeting and entitled to vote on the election of directors. A plurality voting standard remains applicable to any election in which the number of nominees for director is greater than the number to be elected. In addition to the majority voting provisions, the Restated By-laws also include certain technical edits and updates. The foregoing summary of the Restated By-laws is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Restated By-laws which is attached as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.
In connection with the approval of the Restated By-laws, the Board also approved changes to the Company's Corporate Governance Guidelines to require any director candidate to submit in writing a conditional resignation, which would be effective upon the director's failure to receive the required majority vote in any uncontested election and the Board's acceptance of such resignation. If such a conditional resignation is for any reason not executed by an incumbent director prior to an election of directors, it is the policy of the Board that if such director fails to receive the required majority vote in an uncontested election, he or she shall, promptly after certification of such vote, tender his or her resignation to the Board.
