On May 17, 2023, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Agilent Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) approved an amendment and restatement of the Company’s amended and restated bylaws (the “Bylaws” and as further amended and restated, the “Amended Bylaws”). The Amended Bylaws implement the following:


Section 2.3 was amended to, among other things, to permit stockholders holding not less than 20% of our voting stock continuously for at least 1 year to call a special meeting of stockholders.

In connection with the adoption of the new stockholder right to call a special meeting described above, the Amended Bylaws were also amended to provide appropriate procedures for the calling of special meetings of stockholders. These updates, among other things, ensure (i) that a stockholder requesting a special meeting provides meaningful disclosure and prior notice to the Company and our stockholders in compliance with the Amended Bylaws’ advance notice provisions and (ii) that special meetings are not held redundantly in close proximity to our annual meetings or other stockholder meetings in which a similar item was considered.
