Section 5 Corporate Governance and Management
Item 5.03 Amendment to Articles of Incorporation or By-laws
On July 15, 2009, the ITT Corporation Board of Directors approved an amendment to the Companys By-laws, effective on such date, by adding Section 2.13, which provides that the Corporation has elected to opt out of Indiana Code Section 23-1-33-6 (c). As recently amended, Indiana Code Section 23-1-33-6 (c) requires Indiana corporations to stagger the terms of director elections unless a corporation adopts a By-law amendment no later than July 31, 2009 electing not to be governed thereby. By opting out of this amended statute, the Corporations directors will continue to be elected annually.
A copy of the Companys amended By-laws is attached herewith as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
