Item 5.03
Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year
On September 11, 2023, in connection with a periodic review of the Second Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Prior Bylaws”) of Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Inc. (the “Company”), the effectiveness of new Securities and Exchange Commission rules regarding universal proxy cards (the “Universal Proxy Rules”), and certain recent amendments to the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”), the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) approved and adopted the Company’s Third Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Third Amended and Restated Bylaws”), which amended and restated the Prior Bylaws in their entirety and became immediately effective.
The amendments effected by the Third Amended and Restated Bylaws include, among other things:
changing certain provisions relating to stockholder nominees for election as a director to address the Universal Proxy Rules;
revising certain provisions relating to adjournment procedures and lists of stockholders entitled to vote at stockholder meetings, in each case to conform to recent amendments to the DGCL;
requiring any stockholders directly or indirectly soliciting proxies from other stockholders to use a proxy card color other than white, with the white proxy card being reserved for exclusive use by the Company;
modifying procedural mechanics and disclosure requirements in connection with stockholder nominations of directors and submissions of proposals regarding other business at the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders (except for proposals properly made in accordance with Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934), including by requiring additional background information and disclosures regarding proposing stockholders, proposed nominees and business, and other persons related to a stockholder’s solicitation of proxies;
adding the position of Treasurer as an officer of the Company, at the discretion of the Board; and
modifying certain provisions related to indemnification of directors and officers of the Company to provide additional clarity as to when such indemnification applies.
The Third Amended and Restated Bylaws also incorporate various ministerial, clarifying and conforming changes.
The foregoing summary does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Third Amended and Restated Bylaws, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
