Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On November 3, 2010, the board of directors of Centrue Financial Corporation (the Company) approved an amendment to Section 4.7 of the Companys bylaws. Section 4.7 of the bylaws relates to the boards quorum requirement. The foregoing section is being amended in contemplation of the rights granted to the U.S. Treasury pursuant to Section 7.b of the Certificate of Designations of Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series C, which were issued to the U.S. Treasury in January 2009.
Section 7.b of the Certificate of Designations permits, but does not require, the U.S. Treasury to appoint up to two directors to the Companys board in the event that the Company has deferred payment of the dividend on the Series C preferred stock for six quarters or more. The Company announced the deferral of dividend payments on the Series C preferred stock in August 2009.
Section 4.7 of the bylaws, which relates to the boards quorum requirement, has been amended and restated to provide in its relevant portion that [a] majority of the authorized number of directors, excluding the two directorships that may be authorized from time-to-time by Section 7.b of the Certificate of Designations of Fixed Rate Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series C (the Series C Directorships) shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business at any meeting of the Board; provided, however, that in no event shall a quorum consist of less than 1/3 of the total number of directors including any such Series C Directorships. The Company currently has seven directors, none of whom are Series C directors.
The bylaws, as amended and restated, are attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1(ii) and are incorporated herein by reference.
Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
