Item 3.03 Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.
Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On May 8, 2012, the Board of Directors of CSP Inc. took action to declassify the Board of Directors, eliminating the existing three-year staggered terms and providing that all directors, including all incumbent directors as of the date of the Board’s resolution, will be elected annually commencing with the 2013 annual meeting of shareholders.
To effect this change, the Board adopted a resolution to exempt the Company from Section 8.06(b) of the Massachusetts Business Corporation Act, Chapter 156D of the Massachusetts General Laws, which provides for classified boards for public corporations.
In addition, the Board amended the By-Laws of the Company to eliminate the text of Article III, Section 2(b), which set forth, in substantially the same language as contained in Chapter 156D, provisions dealing with the classification of the Board and the election of directors to staggered three-year terms.
These changes became effective upon adoption of the Board resolution referred to above.
Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
3.2 By-Laws, as amended May 8, 2012.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
