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

On July 29, 2019, Acacia Research Corporation (the “Company”) filed a Certificate of Amendment of Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Amendment”) with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware to (i) provide for a declassified Board, (ii) grant stockholders the right to call special meetings of the stockholders, and (iii) implement certain transfer restrictions to preserve tax benefits associated with the Company’s net operating losses (collectively, (i) through (iii), the “Charter Amendments”). Each of the Charter Amendments were approved by the Board of Directors of the Company on May 24, 2019, and by the Company’s stockholders at the 2019 annual meeting of stockholders on July 15, 2019 (the “Annual Meeting”).

On July 29, 2019, the Company filed a Certificate of Correction (the “Certificate of Correction”) to Third Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Restated Charter”) with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware to address one provision of the Restated Charter which was intended to eliminate supermajority vote requirements for specified corporate actions (the “Amendment”). This Amendment had received the affirmative vote of 55.60% of the outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock (“Common Stock”) at the Annual Meeting, but it has been determined that the affirmative vote of 66 2/3% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock was required to approve the Amendment. As a result, the Amendment was not approved, and the Restated Charter was erroneously filed to include the Amendment. The Company believes that its stockholders are supportive of this Amendment and intends to seek stockholder approval of the Amendment at its next annual meeting of stockholders.

The foregoing descriptions of the Certificate of Correction and Certificate of Amendment do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Certificate of Correction and Certificate of Amendment, copies of which are attached as Exhibits 3.1 and 3.2 to this Current Report and are incorporated herein by reference.

Item 9.01.      Financial Statements and Exhibits.
