Item 5.03 Amendment to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On March 7, 2016, the Board of Directors of iRobot Corporation (the “Company”) approved an amendment and restatement of the Company’s Amended and Restated By-laws (the “By-laws Amendment”) to, among other things, provide for “proxy access” to the Company’s stockholders. The By-Laws Amendment allows eligible stockholders who, individually or as part of a group, have continuously held 3% of the Company’s outstanding common stock for at least three years to include stockholder-nominated director candidates in the Company’s proxy materials for annual stockholder meetings. The By-laws Amendment also codifies that a Lead Independent Director will be appointed when the Company’s chief executive officer is also its chairman.
The summary of the By-laws Amendment above is qualified in its entirety by the Amended and Restated By-laws filed herewith as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated herein by reference. In addition, a marked copy of the Amended and Restated By-laws is filed herewith as Exhibit 3.2 to reflect the changes described above.
