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

At the Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on March 23, 2018, the stockholders of Qualcomm Incorporated (the “Company”) approved amendments to the Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended (the “Certificate”) of the Company (a) to eliminate the supermajority voting requirements relating to removal of directors without cause, (b) to eliminate supermajority voting requirements relating to the amendment of the Company’s Bylaws and certain provisions in the Certificate, (c) to delete the “fair price provision” in the Certificate, which had required supermajority voting approval of certain transactions with interested stockholders, and (d) to delete certain obsolete provisions from the Certificate. These changes are discussed more fully in our definitive Proxy Statement for the Annual Meeting. On April 18, 2018, the Company filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware an Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation reflecting those changes to the Certificate.

Concurrent with the amendments to the Certificate discussed above, corresponding and conforming changes to the Bylaws became effective to: (a) decrease the voting percentage required to remove a director without cause, and (b) to decrease the voting percentage required to amend the Bylaws, in each case from a supermajority to a majority of the then outstanding shares of our voting stock.

The foregoing descriptions of the Certificate and Bylaws do not purport to be complete, and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Certificate and Bylaws, which are attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and Exhibit 3.2, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.
