SEC Filing

The Hanover Insurance Group, Inc. (the “Company”) held its annual meeting of shareholders on May 14, 2024 (the “Annual Meeting”). At the Annual Meeting, the Company’s shareholders approved certain amendments to the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation (collectively, the “Charter Amendments”), which had been previously approved by the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”). The Charter Amendments included the following:

to declassify the Board with each director subject to election each year for a one-year term;
to allow for officer exculpation as permitted by Section 102(b)(7) of the Delaware General Corporate Law; and
to amend and restate the Certificate of Incorporation to clarify, streamline and modernize the form.


On May 15, 2024, the Company filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware the amended and restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Amended and Restated Charter”), which reflects the Charter Amendments.
