On February 22, 2023, the Board of Directors of Piedmont Lithium Inc. (the “Company”) approved and adopted the amended and restated bylaws of the Company to reflect the amendments summarized below (as so amended and restated, the “Amended and Restated Bylaws”), effective immediately.
Among other things, the amendments effected by the Amended and Restated Bylaws: (i) update certain procedural requirements related to director nominations by stockholders in light of the recently adopted Rule 14a-19 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”); and (ii) reflect certain other related changes, including requiring (1) additional background information and disclosures regarding stockholders proposing director nominations and other business, director nominees proposed by stockholders, and other persons related to a stockholder’s solicitation of proxies; and (2) any stockholder submitting a nomination notice to make a representation and provide confirmation as to whether such stockholder intends to solicit proxies in support of director nominees other than the Company’s nominees in accordance with Rule 14a-19 under the Exchange Act and the Amended and Restated Bylaws and to provide evidence that the stockholder has complied with such requirements. In addition, the amendments added a new Section 2.9, which requires any director nominee to deliver a written questionnaire with respect to the nominee’s background and qualifications as well as to provide any other questionnaires or information that may be necessary to assess the nominee’s qualifications and eligibility for board service.
The Amended and Restated Bylaws also: (i) provide that a white proxy card is reserved solely for use for solicitation by the Company’s Board of Directors, and (ii) update and conform various provisions to reflect the latest amendments to the Delaware General Corporation Law, including by: (1) clarifying the adjournment procedures for virtual meetings of stockholders; and (2) eliminating the requirement that the list of stockholders be open to examination at meetings of stockholders. The Amended and Restated Bylaws also incorporate other non-substantive, ministerial, clarifying and conforming changes.

The foregoing description of the Amended and Restated Bylaws is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amended and Restated Bylaws which are filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
