Item 5.03. Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

 

(a) Amendment to Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws

Our Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation and Amended and Restated Bylaws provided that our Board of Directors be divided into three classes, with each class having a three-year term.

Amendment to Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation

On May 18, 2011, at the 2011 Annual Meeting of the Stockholders of NVIDIA Corporation, or the 2011 Annual Meeting, our stockholders approved an amendment to our Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, or the Amendment, to declassify the Board of Directors and provide for the annual election of all directors. The Amendment was filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on May 23, 2011 and was effective as of such date. Pursuant to the Amendment, directors who have been elected to three-year terms prior to the filing of the Amendment (including directors elected at the 2011 Annual Meeting) will complete those terms. Thereafter, their successors will be elected to one-year terms and from and after the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Stockholders of NVIDIA Corporation, all directors will stand for election annually. The Amendment is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

Amended and Restated Bylaws

Our Board of Directors previously approved an amendment to our Amended and Restated Bylaws to eliminate the Board of Directors’ classified structure in the same manner as the Amendment, which became effective upon the filing of the Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on May 23, 2011. The Amended and Restated Bylaws are filed as Exhibit 3.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
