INSIGHT ENTERPRISES INC FILES (8-K) Disclosing Amendments to Articles of Inc. or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year, Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders, Financial Statements and Exhibits

May 19, 2014



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

On May 14, 2014, the Board of Directors of Insight Enterprises, Inc. (the "Company") approved and adopted Amended and Restated Bylaws (the "Restated Bylaws"), effective as of that date.

With respect to stockholder nominations of directors or stockholder proposals to be brought before a meeting of stockholders, the Restated Bylaws expand the information requirements that a stockholder proponent must provide about a director nominee, the stockholder proponent and any associated person of the stockholder proponent and any business proposed by the stockholder proponent, including any interest of any associated person in the proposal or director nomination. In particular, the Restated Bylaws are more specific about, and increase, the disclosure requirements for information that must be provided to the Company with respect to shares of the Company held by the stockholder proponent and any associated person of the stockholder proponent, derivative interests held by the stockholder proponent and any associated person of the stockholder proponent and any voting agreements or arrangements with the proponent and any associated person of the stockholder proponent and require a stockholder proponent to provide a list of all transactions involving Company securities by the stockholder proponent and any associated person of the stockholder proponent within the six month period prior to the date of the stockholder proponent's notice.

In addition, the Restated Bylaws effect several additional minor clarifications and revisions to the prior bylaws, including, but not limited to:

• clarify that a quorum at a meeting cannot be defeated by stockholders withdrawing from a meeting;

• clarify that the annual meeting would be held at the principal executive office of the Company in the event no other place is fixed by the Board of Directors and permit the holding of the annual meeting solely through remote communication;

• clarify that no reduction in the authorized number of directors would serve to shorten the term of any directors' term of office and that if a director resigns as of a future date, the Board of Directors may elect a successor to take office as of that future date;

• update and clarify statements about compensation of directors;

• more expressly permit notice by electronic communication; and

• clarify that the indemnification provisions represent contract rights between the Company and each indemnified person, and that any amendments to those provisions will be prospective only and will not adversely affect indemnification rights related to past events.

The foregoing does not constitute a complete summary of the amendments to the Company's Restated Bylaws and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Restated Bylaws, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.2 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.
