On March 20, 2020, Boston Properties, Inc. (the “Company”) amended its Third Amended and Restated By-laws (the “By-laws”) to allow for increased flexibility in setting the location of, and appointing the presiding officer for, annual and special meetings of stockholders. The Company adopted this amendment primarily to enable it to better address uncertainties relating to the Company’s ability to hold an in-person annual meeting arising from public health considerations relating to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
After giving effect to the amendment, the Chairman of the Board of Directors, the Chief Executive Officer or the President is authorized to change the place of any annual or special meeting once it has already been established. Additionally, the amendment provides procedures for the designation of a presiding officer at any annual or special meeting should each of the Chairman of the Board of Directors, the Chief Executive Officer and the President be unable to attend.
