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

On and effective July 31, 2014, the board of directors of Parker Drilling Company (the “Company”) amended and restated the Company’s By-laws (as amended and restated, the “By-laws”) to, among other things:

 

    clarify that special meetings of the stockholders called by the Company’s board of directors require approval by a majority of the entire board pursuant to a board resolution;

 

    remove the ability of any vice-president of the Company to call a special meeting of stockholders;

 

    allow for notices of stockholders’ meetings to be sent via electronic mail;

 

    increase the outer limit on time during which notice of a stockholders’ meeting may be provided to stockholders from fifty days to sixty days prior to the meeting;

 

    allow the chairman to adjourn a stockholders’ meeting at any time, whether or not a quorum is present;

 

    clarify that in order to properly bring forth business or nominate a director at an annual meeting, a stockholder must be a stockholder of record at the time of giving notice, on the record date with respect to such meeting and on the date of the meeting and must otherwise comply with the procedural requirements set forth in the By-laws;

 

    clarify that the advance notice provisions of the By-laws are the exclusive means for a stockholder to submit business before a meeting of stockholders (other than matters properly brought under Rule 14a-8 of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s proxy rules, which contains its own procedural requirements);

 

    require that a stockholder proponent and any beneficial owner on whose behalf the nomination or proposal is made fully disclose all ownership interests, including derivatives, hedged positions and other economic and voting interests, and disclose full information regarding any nominees for election as director; and

 

    permit the Company to require director nominees to complete a written questionnaire in a form provided by the Company and make representations to the Company that he or she will not enter into any voting commitment or other compensatory arrangement with a third party without first disclosing such commitment or arrangement to the Company.

The foregoing description of the By-laws does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the By-laws, a copy of which is being filed with this report as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated by reference herein.
