Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal
(a) On March 2, 2015, the Board of Directors of Newell Rubbermaid Inc. (the
"Company") adopted amendments to the Company's By-Laws. The amendment, among
other things, permits record holders who have held at least a fifteen percent
(15%) net long position in the outstanding common stock of the Company for at
least one year to call a special meeting of stockholders. The amendment contains
certain customary limitations and timing mechanisms that are intended to avoid
the cost and distraction that would result from multiple stockholder meetings
being held in a short time period.
The above description of the amendment is not complete and is qualified in
its entirety by reference to the Company's By-Laws, as amended, a copy of which
is filed as Exhibit 3.2 to this report and is incorporated herein by reference.
