ITEM 5.03. AMENDMENTS TO ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION OR BYLAWS; CHANGE IN FISCAL YEAR.

On February 23, 2010, pursuant to stockholder approval, Bank of America Corporation (the “Corporation”) amended its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Incorporation”) to provide for an increase in the number of shares of the Corporation’s common stock authorized for issuance from 10 billion to 11.3 billion. A copy of the Certificate of Amendment to the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Amendment”) is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

ITEM 8.01. OTHER EVENTS.

On February 23, 2010, the Corporation announced the results of its Special Meeting of Stockholders held on February 23, 2010 in Charlotte, North Carolina, at which the stockholders approved the Amendment. The Corporation also announced the automatic conversion in full, effective at 9:30 a.m. on February 24, 2010, of all the outstanding shares of the Corporation’s Common Equivalent Junior Preferred Stock, Series S, $0.01 par value (the “Series S Preferred Stock”), into an aggregate of 1.286 billion shares of the Corporation’s common stock, pursuant to the terms of the Series S Preferred Stock. The Series S Preferred Stock was issued on December 9, 2009 in connection with the Corporation’s issuance of $19.3 billion, or 1.286 billion, Common Equivalent Securities (the “Common Equivalent Securities”). Each Common Equivalent Security consisted of one depositary share representing a 1/1000th interest in a share of Series S Preferred Stock, and a warrant (the “Contingent Warrant”) to purchase a fractional share of the Corporation’s common stock. On February 24, 2010, the Contingent Warrants automatically expired without having become exercisable, the Series S Preferred Stock converted in full into shares of the Corporation’s Common Stock at the rate of 1,000 shares of Common Stock for each share of Series S Preferred Stock outstanding, and the Common Equivalent Securities ceased to exist. A copy of the news release announcing such results and the conversion of the Series S Preferred Stock is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
