Item 5.03    Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
Approval of Amended and Restated Bylaws
On April 12, 2021, the board of directors (the “Board”) of MaxLinear, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company,” “us,” or “our”), adopted amended and restated bylaws to, among other matters, include a forum selection provision for stockholder litigation and governance disputes, amend and update certain information requirements and other provisions relating to stockholder nominations and proposals, and update various administrative and ministerial provisions relating to stockholder meetings and corporate governance.
The forum selection provision adds a new Article XI to our bylaws and provides that claims relating to Delaware law-oriented matters must be brought in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware (or if the Court of Chancery does not have jurisdiction, in another state court in Delaware or in federal district court for the District of Delaware). Subject to certain exceptions, actions required to be brought in Delaware include derivative claims or proceedings brought on behalf of the Company; claims asserting breach of a fiduciary duty by any of our directors, stockholders, officers, or employees; claims arising under any provision of the Delaware General Corporation Law or our charter or bylaws; and claims governed by the internal affairs doctrine. The provision also provides that United States federal district courts shall be the sole and exclusive forum for the resolution of claims asserting a cause of action arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, against any person in connection with any offering of our securities (including, without limitation, any auditor, underwriter, expert, control person, or other defendant).
The amendments relating to advance notice of stockholder nominations and proposals govern, among other terms, the timing and process for bringing stockholder nominations and proposals and the information required to be provided to us. The balance of the amendments relates principally to the processes for and conduct of stockholder meetings and also includes updates based on changes in Delaware law since our bylaws were originally adopted in connection with our initial public offering. The amendments also remove references to the Class B shares and board designees, which are no longer applicable.
The foregoing description of our amended and restated bylaws is qualified in its entirely by reference to our complete amended and restated bylaws, which are filed herewith as Exhibit 3.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
