On December 13, 2007, Waccamaw Bankshares, Inc. (the Registrant) amended its bylaws. The Registrant amended Section 1 of Article II to indicate that the Registrants annual meeting may be held within 180 days of its fiscal year end as opposed to within 120 days of its fiscal year end. The Registrant also made a conforming change to Section 2 of Article II to indicate when a substitute annual meeting may be called.
The Registrant also amended Sections 1 and 2 of Article VII to permit the Registrant to issue shares of capital stock without certificates. Previously, the bylaws had indicated that all issued shares would be represented by certificates. Section 1 of Article VII was also amended to indicate that the Registrant would send to any shareholder who has been issued uncertificated shares a statement, required by law, indicating the pertinent facts about the rights associated with such capital stock issued.
The amended portions of Articles II and VII of the Registrants bylaws are attached hereto as Exhibits 5.1 and 5.2, respectively, and incorporated herein by reference. The Registrant will file a complete, amended copy of its bylaws with its next periodic report required pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
