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


On December 15, 2015, the Board of Directors of Sempra Energy (the “Company”) adopted and approved amended Bylaws of the Company (the “Bylaws”).  The Bylaws took effect immediately upon approval by the Board.

The Bylaws were amended to provide for “proxy access” by eligible shareholders.  Article V, Section 4, as amended, provides for a shareholder, or a group of no more than 20 shareholders, that has continuously owned at least 3% of the Company’s outstanding stock entitled to vote in the election of directors for at least three years, to nominate and include in the Company’s proxy materials up to the greater of two directors or 20% of the number of the Company’s directors then in office, provided that the shareholder(s) and the nominee(s) satisfy the requirements specified in the Bylaws. 

In addition, the Bylaws were amended to, among other things:

§provide flexibility by removing the requirement to hold a regular meeting of directors immediately after the annual meeting of shareholders (Article III);

§revise the number of directors required to call a special meeting of directors from a majority of the authorized number of directors to a majority of the directors then in office (Article III);

§revise the number of directors constituting a quorum from a majority of the authorized number of directors to a majority of the directors then in office, provided that (in accordance with California law) the number of directors constituting a quorum will be no less than the greater of one third of the authorized number of directors or two directors (Article III);

§update the advance notice requirements for shareholders nominating directors to require disclosure of information about certain agreements involving nominees and to require that any such nominee agree, if elected, to comply with all of the Company’s existing policies, codes and guidelines applicable to directors (Article V);

§provide an orderly process for shareholders to nominate directors for election at a special meeting of shareholders called by the Company for the purpose of electing one or more directors by establishing an advance notice window under which shareholders must provide notice of such nominees to the Company not more than 120 days before the meeting and not less than the later of 90 days before the meeting or the tenth day following public announcement of the date of the meeting (Article V); and

§ make additional clarifying and conforming amendments.


The foregoing description of the amendments to the Bylaws is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Bylaws of Sempra Energy (as amended through December 15, 2015), which are filed as Exhibit 3.1 of this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.
