Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On June 8, 2012, the board of directors (the Board) of Live Nation Entertainment, Inc. (the Company) amended and restated the Companys bylaws (the Bylaws).
The principal changes made to the Bylaws were to the procedures for the election of directors and the required vote contained in Section 2.11 of the Bylaws, and reflect a change from a plurality voting standard to a majority voting standard in elections where the number of directors proposed for election equals the number of Board seats to be filled. A plurality voting standard has been retained in situations where there are more Board nominees than seats to fill in any particular election. The Board concurrently adopted a policy on majority voting that states, among other things, that the Board expects each incumbent director who is nominated for re-election to the Board to tender his or her resignation from the Board if he or she fails to receive the required number of votes for re-election in accordance with the Bylaws, which resignation would become effective if and when the Board or a duly authorized committee of the Board determines to accept such resignation.
The foregoing summary does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Fourth Amended and Restated Bylaws of Live Nation Entertainment, Inc., filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.
