Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.


On August 20, 2019, Old Second Bancorp, Inc.’s (the “Company”) board of directors amended the Company’s bylaws by deleting Section 3.15 of Article III in its entirety, which prohibited the election of any director that attained the age of seventy (70) years and required all directors who attained age seventy (70) to resign his or her directorship; provided such director would then be eligible to serve as a “Senior Director” (as defined in the bylaws) until such director attained the age of seventy-three (73).  This bylaw amendment mirrors an amendment to the Company’s certificate of incorporation that was approved by the Company’s stockholders at the Company’s 2019 annual meeting of stockholders and filed promptly thereafter.


As contemplated in the Company’s proxy statement related to its 2019 annual meeting of stockholders, on August 20, 2019 the board of directors also approved and adopted a Director Resignation Policy pursuant to which no person will be elected to serve, or continue to serve, as a director of the Company after attaining the age of seventy-three (73) years and requiring all directors to resign his or her directorship upon attaining age seventy-three (73), effective at such time.  In addition, the Director Resignation Policy further provides that if an incumbent director fails to receive a majority of the votes cast in an uncontested director election, such director must tender a written offer of resignation to the board of directors, and the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee (the “Committee”) of the board is to promptly consider the director’s offer of resignation and recommend to the board whether to accept the resignation or reject it.  The board of directors is to act on the Committee’s recommendation no later than 120 days following the certification of the stockholder vote,  and the Company is to report the decision by the board of directors in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.     


The foregoing description of the bylaws and the Director Resignation Policy do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the bylaws, attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated by reference herein, and the full text of the Director Resignation Policy, which will be posted in the “Investor Relations” section of the Company’s website at www.oldsecond.com.    The board of directors has the authority to amend the Company’s bylaws and the Director Resignation Policy as the board of directors may determine to be appropriate.
