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

On October 22, 2019, the Board of Directors of Ruth’s Hospitality Group, Inc. (the “Company”) approved amendments to the Company’s bylaws (as amended, the “Amended and Restated Bylaws”), effective as of that date.  The amendments are generally intended to enhance information provided to the Company regarding stockholder-proposed nominees and/or proposals, and to enhance information available to stockholders in connection with a stockholder meeting.

With respect to the advance notice provisions concerning stockholder nominations of directors or stockholder proposals (other than pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) to be brought before a meeting of stockholders, the amendments clarify eligibility requirements and expand the information and representations that a stockholder proponent must include in a written notice to the Company for purposes of making such nominations or proposing such matters. In particular, Article II, Sections 11 and 12 of the Amended and Restated Bylaws were revised to require, among others, additional information about such stockholder’s financial interests and intentions and additional information relating to any such director nominees, such as direct and indirect compensation and other material monetary agreements, arrangements and understandings during the past three years between the stockholder proponent and each director nominee, derivative interests held by the stockholder proponent and any voting agreements or arrangements between the stockholder proponent and each director nominee.  

In addition to other conforming changes and technical revisions, the Amended and Restated Bylaws update the name of the Company (which was changed in 2008 from Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Inc. to Ruth’s Hospitality Group, Inc.), update the registered office address of the Company in Delaware, and modernize the general bylaw provisions by removing a provision regarding certain loans by the Company.

The foregoing description of the bylaw amendments is only a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Amended and Restated Bylaws, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.2 and is incorporated herein by reference.
