On November14, 2017, the Board of Directors of Prudential Financial, Inc. (the “Company”) approved amendments to the Company’s Amended and Restated By-Laws, effective immediately. The amendments implement “net long” share ownership and other requirements for shareholders to request a special meeting. The amendments also require shareholders to furnish security ownership information and meet other requirements in connection with providing advance notice of shareholder meeting proposals and director nominations. These new provisions are consistent with the requirements applicable to shareholders wishing to nominate a director for election under the Company’s previously adopted proxy access by-law.
In addition, the amendments reduce the maximum size of the Board from 24 to 15 directors, consistent with both the Board’s current size and the 10-15 director range set forth in the Company’s Corporate Governance Principles and Practices. Other changes include administrative updates related to the adjournment of meetings, action by written consent, director compensation, electronic notice and employee indemnification.
The foregoing description of the Company’s Amended and Restated By-Laws is qualified in all respects by reference to the text of the Amended and Restated By-Laws, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
