On December 7, 2018, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Natus Medical Incorporated (“Natus”) adopted amendments to Natus' Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Bylaws”) to implement proxy access. As amended, the Bylaws include a new Section 2.13 permitting a stockholder, or a group of up to 20 stockholders, owning continuously for at least three years a number of Natus shares that constitutes at least 3% of Natus' outstanding shares, to nominate and include in Natus' proxy materials director nominees constituting up to the greater of two individuals or 20% (rounded down to the nearest whole number) of the Board, provided that the stockholder(s) and the nominee(s) satisfy the requirements specified in the Bylaws. The amended Bylaws also reflect certain conforming changes in Sections 2.3 and 3.2.

The foregoing description of the amendments to the Bylaws is qualified in its entirety by reference to the amended and restated Bylaws, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.
