Item 5.03

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

On December 6, 2022, the board of directors (the “Board”) of Analog Devices, Inc. (the “Company”) approved an amendment and restatement of the Company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws (such further amended and restated version, the “Amended and Restated Bylaws”), effective immediately. The amendments effected by the Amended and Restated Bylaws revise and enhance, in light of the universal proxy rules adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, procedural mechanics and disclosure requirements in connection with shareholder nominations of directors and submission of proposals regarding other business at shareholder meetings by:

 

   

Requiring additional background information, disclosures and certain representations from proposing shareholders and beneficial owners and the respective affiliates and associates of, or others acting in concert with such shareholder and such beneficial owner (each, a “Shareholder Associated Person”);

 

   

Providing that if any shareholder, beneficial owner and/or Shareholder Associated Person that intends to solicit proxies in support of any nominees other than the Company’s nominees provides the notice and information required by Rule 14a-19(b) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), then such shareholder, beneficial owner and/or Shareholder Associated Person, upon request by the Company, must provide to the Company no later than five business days prior to the applicable meeting, reasonable evidence that it has met the requirements of soliciting the holders of shares of at least 67% of the voting power of shares entitled to vote on the election of directors and including a statement to that effect in the proxy statement or form of proxy; and

 

   

Providing that if any shareholder, beneficial owner and/or Shareholder Associated Person fails to comply with the requirements of Rule 14a-19 under the Exchange Act (or fails to timely provide reasonable evidence sufficient to satisfy the Company that such requirements have been met), then the Company will disregard the nomination of each of the director nominees proposed by such shareholder, beneficial owner and/or Shareholder Associated Person and any proxies or votes solicited for such nominees.

The Amended and Restated Bylaws also includes various other updates, including certain technical, conforming and clarifying changes.

The foregoing description of the Amended and Restated Bylaws is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amended and Restated Bylaws, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
