SEC Filing
On January 18, 2023, in connection with the new Securities and Exchange Commission Rule 14a-19 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, regarding universal proxy cards (the “Universal Proxy Rule”), certain recent changes to the Delaware General Corporation Law and a periodic review of the bylaws of NN, Inc. (the “Company”), the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company adopted and approved amended and restated bylaws (the “Amended and Restated Bylaws”), effective immediately. Among other things, the amendments effected by the Amended and Restated Bylaws:
Enhance procedural mechanics and disclosure requirements in connection with stockholder nominations of directors made in connection with annual and special meetings of stockholders by, including, without limitation:
Adding a requirement that any stockholder submitting a nomination notice make a representation as to whether such stockholder intends to solicit proxies in support of director nominees other than the Company’s nominees in accordance with the Universal Proxy Rule;
Clarifying that if any stockholder provides notice pursuant to the Universal Proxy Rule and subsequently either (i) notifies the Company that such stockholder no longer intends to solicit proxies in support of director nominees other than the Company’s nominees or (ii) fails either to comply with the requirements of the Universal Proxy Rule or to timely provide reasonable evidence to the Company that such stockholder has met the requirements of the Universal Proxy Rule then such stockholder’s nominees will be disregarded and no vote on such nominees proposed by such stockholder will occur, notwithstanding any proxies or votes the Company has received in respect of such nominees;
Providing that the number of nominees proposed by stockholders submitting a nomination notice may not exceed the number of directors to be elected at the relevant meeting of stockholders; and
Requiring that, if requested by the Board or any Board committee, proposed nominees make themselves available for interviews by the Board or such committee on or prior to the later of (i) ten (10) days following the date of any reasonable request therefor from the Board or any Board committee, and (ii) the 30th day prior to the meeting of stockholders at which any such proposed nominee is nominated to be elected.
Modify the provisions relating to availability of lists of stockholders entitled to vote at stockholder meetings to reflect recent amendments to the Delaware General Corporation Law;
Require any stockholders directly or indirectly soliciting proxies from other stockholders to use a proxy card color other than white, with the white proxy card being reserved for exclusive use by the Board;
Require a stockholder (or a qualified representative of the stockholder) presenting business at a meeting of the Company’s stockholders under the advance notice provisions to appear in person at the applicable meeting to present such proposed business;
Remove provisions relating to the previously completed transition from a classified Board to annual election of directors that are no longer applicable;
Make various other updates, including technical, ministerial and conforming changes related to recent amendments in the Delaware General Corporation Law.
