Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year
On August 8, 2006, the Securities and Exchange Commission approved a new Nasdaq listing standard setting forth Direct Registration System (DRS) eligibility requirements, which require listed companies to become DRS eligible by January 1, 2008. DRS enables investors to maintain securities electronically on the books of a transfer agent or issuer, and allows for the electronic transfer of securities. To meet DRS requirements and comply with Nasdaq Rule 4350(l), on November 20, 2007, the Board of Directors of GB&T Bancshares, Inc. (the Company) amended the Companys Bylaws to allow for the issuance of uncertificated shares.
The amendment to the Bylaws is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
