Effective November 15, 2022, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of M&T Bank Corporation (“M&T”) approved and adopted its Restated Certificate of Incorporation and Amended and Restated Bylaws. On November 16, 2022, M&T filed with the New York Department of State its Restated Certificate of Incorporation.

The Amended and Restated Bylaws were adopted in order to (i) update throughout M&T’s amended and restated bylaws with references to the Compensation and Human Capital Committee and/or the Nomination and Governance Committee of the Board, where appropriate, (ii) update a reference in Section 2 of Article X of M&T’s amended and restated bylaws to the appropriate section of the Business Corporation Law of New York, and (iii) restate M&T’s amended and restated bylaws as heretofore amended.
