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

At Nasdaq’s 2022 annual meeting of shareholders on June 22, 2022, Nasdaq’s shareholders approved a certificate of amendment to Nasdaq’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock in connection with a three-for-one stock split of Nasdaq’s common stock in the form of a stock dividend (the “Charter Amendment”).

Each Nasdaq shareholder of record at the close of business on August 12, 2022 (the “Stock Dividend Record Date”) will receive, after the close of business on August 26, 2022, two additional shares for every one share held as of the Stock Dividend Record Date. Trading is expected to begin on a split-adjusted basis on August 29, 2022.
