Item 3.03.
Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.
The information set forth in Item 5.03 below regarding the amendment to the Amended and Restated Declaration of Trust, as amended (the "Declaration of Trust"), of EPR Properties (the "Company") is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.03.
Item 5.03.
Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On May 29, 2020, at the 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholder (the "2020 Annual Meeting") of the Company held on May 29, 2020, the Company's shareholders approved an amendment (the "Amendment") to the Declaration of Trust to add a new Article Twentieth. The new Article Twentieth allows the Company to redeem its Securities where the person owning or controlling such Securities is determined to be unsuitable to own or control such Securities due to failure to comply with all applicable laws, statutes and ordinances pursuant to which any gaming authority possesses regulatory, permit and licensing authority over the conduct of gaming activities. The new Article Twentieth defines the term "Securities" to mean the Company's common shares, preferred shares and/or capital stock, member's interests or membership interests, partnership interests or other equity securities of entities affiliated with the Company. The Amendment was filed with the State Department of Assessments and Taxation of Maryland on June 1, 2020.
The foregoing description of the Amendment is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amendment, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated herein by reference. A more detailed description of the material changes in rights of the Company's shareholders as a result of the Amendment was included in Proposal No. 3 of the Company's definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 17, 2020, which description is incorporated in its entirety herein by reference.
