CAPITAL CITY BANK GROUP, INC.
|Item 5.03.||Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.|
(a) On April 27, 2021, Capital City Bank Group, Inc. (the “Company”) held its 2021 Annual Meeting of Shareowners (the “2021 Annual Meeting”). At the Annual Meeting, the Company’s shareowners voted to approve the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation (the “Amended and Restated Articles”), which primarily declassified the Board of Directors (the “Board”) and provided for annual election of all directors beginning with the 2021 Annual Meeting. This description is a summary that is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amended and Restated Articles, which are filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference. During the meeting on April 27, 2021 and immediately following the vote on the Amended and Restated Articles, the Company filed Articles of Restatement with the Secretary of State of the State of Florida to effect the Amended and Restated Articles and provide for annual election of all directors at the 2021 Annual Meeting and thereafter.
(b) In connection with the proposal to adopt the Amended and Restated Articles, the Board had previously contingently adopted Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Bylaws”), to, among other things, declassify the Board, which became effective upon the filing of the Articles of Restatement to effect the Amended and Restated Articles with the Secretary of State of the State of Florida. Many of the changes in the Bylaws reflect changes in the Florida Business Corporation Act, which was extensively amended effective January 1, 2020. Other changes were designed to simplify the Bylaws and conform the Bylaws to current corporate governance practices.
Changes in specific sections are described in greater detail below.
|Section||Description of Change|
|1.3 – Place||Provides that shareowner meetings can be held by means of remote communication (i.e., virtually), if so determined by the Board.|
|1.11 – Voting for Directors||Clarifies that directors are elected by a majority of the votes cast by shareowners, except when there are more nominees than the number of directors to be elected, when directors are elected by a plurality vote.|
|1.16 – Shareowner Nominations and Proposals; 1.17 – Submission of Questionnaire, Representation and Agreement||Replaces the prior provisions in their entirety to reflect current practice with respect to advance notice of shareowners nominations and other proposals.|
|1.19 – Organization; 1.20 – Conduct of Meetings||New provisions govern the organization and conduct of shareowner meetings, including who presides at meetings and his/her authority with respect to meetings.|
|2.3 – Selection and Term; 2.7 – Vacancies||Reflects that all directors are elected annually instead of staggered three-year terms.|
|2.13 – Action Without a Meeting||Specifies that the Board or a committee may act by unanimous consent in writing or by electronic communications.|
|7.6 – Advance Reimbursement||Provides that advance reimbursement for legal and other fees will be terminated in the event that an indemnified person pleads guilty or nolo contendere (no contest) to a felony charge arising out of misconduct committed by such person in his or her capacity as a director, officer, employee, or agent of the Company or in certain other capacities.|
|Article VIII – Amendments|
