Item 5.03Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

On June 2, 2022, Netflix, Inc. (the “Company”) held its 2022 annual meeting of stockholders via the internet (the “Annual Meeting”), at which the stockholders voted to amend the Company’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Charter”) to declassify the Company’s board of directors, eliminate supermajority voting provisions and create a new stockholder right to call a special meeting (collectively, the “Charter Amendments”). Detailed descriptions of the foregoing amendments were set forth in Management Proposals Two, Three and Four in the Company’s definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 22, 2022 (the “Proxy Statement”), which descriptions are incorporated herein by reference and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation filed herewith as Exhibit 3.1. These amendments became effective upon filing the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on June 7, 2022.

Additionally, the Board approved an amendment and restatement of the Company’s bylaws (the “Bylaws”), which became effective concurrently with the effectiveness of the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation. The Bylaws were amended and restated to:

Implement a majority vote standard for the election of directors in uncontested director elections, with a plurality vote standard applying to contested director elections;
Adopt a resignation policy consistent with the majority vote standard, so that an incumbent director who does not receive the requisite affirmative majority of the votes cast for his or her re-election will be required to promptly tender his or her resignation to the Board, subject to acceptance by the Board;
Declassify the board of directors to give effect to the Charter Amendments;
Eliminate the supermajority stockholder vote required for stockholders to amend the bylaws to give effect to the Charter Amendments;
Create a new stockholder right to call a special meeting to give effect to the Charter Amendments; and
Make certain technical, conforming and administrative changes.

The foregoing description of the Amended and Restated Bylaws is qualified in its entirety by reference to, and should be read in conjunction with, the complete text of Amended and Restated Bylaws, which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 3.2, the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference. In addition, a marked copy of the Amended and Restated Bylaws showing all changes made to the Company’s prior bylaws is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.3.
