Item 5.03 – Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year
Amended and Restated Bylaws
On and effective August 21, 2014, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Comstock Resources, Inc. (the "Company") approved and adopted an amendment and restatement of the Company's bylaws (as amended and restated, the "Bylaws"). As more fully summarized below, the Bylaws, among other things, set forth new advance notice provisions for a stockholder of the Company to propose nominees for election to the Board or to submit other business at an annual or special meeting of stockholders.
The Bylaws add the requirement for stockholders to provide advance written notice of stockholder proposals or nominations for an annual meeting and require that such advance notice be delivered to the Company not less than ninety (90) days nor more than one hundred twenty (120) days prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year's annual meeting, subject to certain conditions.  In addition, the Bylaws set forth the scope of information stockholders must provide when nominating a director or bringing other business before a stockholder meeting pursuant to the advance notice provisions.
To be in proper written form, a stockholder's notice with respect to any business or nomination must state with respect to each matter such stockholder proposes to bring before the annual meeting: (i) the name and address of the stockholder; (ii) a description of all of the stockholder's interests in the Company, including but not limited to options, warrants, proxies, short interests, dividend rights, or derivative securities; (iii) a description of the business to be proposed by the stockholder at the meeting, any interest the stockholder has in such business and any agreements regarding such business to which the stockholder is a party; (iv) if proposing to nominate a director, any information required by a proxy statement in relation to such nominee and a description of any compensation arrangements between the stockholder and the nominee; and (v) if proposing to nominate a director, a completed questionnaire with respect to the nominee's background in a form prescribed by the Company, and a representation and agreement that the nominee complies with all applicable laws and policies regarding directorship and is not party to any undisclosed agreement compensating the nominee for his services or placing voting obligations on the nominee.
Similarly, to propose business or nominate directors at a special meeting, a stockholder must provide the notice outlined above between one hundred (100) and one hundred twenty (120) days prior to the meeting (or if the public announcement of the meeting is less than 100 days before the meeting is to occur, within 10 days after the announcement). The Bylaws do not alter a stockholder's right under Rule 14a-8 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, to include information in the Company's proxy statement.
In addition, the Bylaws amend and clarify various provisions relating to who may call a special meeting, the stockholder meeting voting inspector, the Board's ability to rely on reports and other materials, and share ownership records. The Bylaws also reflect the declassification of the Board, as approved by the Company's stockholders at the 2014 annual meeting.
The foregoing description of the Bylaws is a summary only and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full and complete text of the Bylaws, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
