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


(a) On July 27, 2015, the Board of Directors of the Company approved amendments to the Company’s By-Laws to allow for notice to a stockholder to be given by electronic transmission if the stockholder has consented to receive notices by electronic transmission. The amendments also allow for stockholders to waive notice by electronic transmission and for a proxy to be in the form of an electronic transmission. The amendments also define a representative qualified to represent a stockholder at a meeting to be a person who is a duly authorized officer, manager or partner of the stockholder, or a person who is authorized to act for the stockholder.


The amendments also allow a director of the Company to give notice of resignation by electronic transmission and to waive notice of a special meeting of the Board of Directors by electronic transmission, and to provide consent by electronic transmission to actions taken without a meeting of the Board of Directors or a committee of the Board of Directors. The amendments also allow the Company to provide notice by electronic transmission to directors of a special meeting of the Board of Directors.


The amendments define an electronic transmission as any form of communication that doesn’t involve the physical transmission of paper, that creates a record that can be retained, retrieved, and reviewed by a recipient, and that may be directly reproduced in paper form by a recipient through an automated process.


The foregoing description of the amendments to the Company’s By-Laws is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the amended By-Laws, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
