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

On May 19, 2022, the Board of Directors of Alexander’s, Inc. (the “Company”) approved and adopted amendments to the Company’s Amended and Restated By-laws (as so amended, the “Bylaws”). In addition to certain technical, conforming and clarifying changes, these amendments include the following changes:

Section 1.3 of the Bylaws was amended to provide that written notice of a meeting of stockholders may be provided by any means permitted by law not less than ten or more than sixty days before the meeting.
Virtual Meetings of Stockholders; Electronic Notices. New Article X of the Bylaws clarifies that the Company may hold meetings of stockholders and of the board of directors by means of remote communication and that notices to directors may be sent by electronic email.
Exclusive Forum Provision. New Article XI of the Bylaws provides that, unless the Company otherwise consents, the Delaware Court of Chancery (or if such court does not have jurisdiction then the federal district court for the District of Delaware, or if neither such court has jurisdiction then another state court in Delaware) shall be the sole and exclusive forum for certain litigation related to the Company, including any derivative action, any action asserting claims of breach of a fiduciary duty owed by any director, officer, employee or stockholder to the Company, or any claim arising under the Delaware General Corporation Law, the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation or the Bylaws. In addition, Article XI provides that, unless the Company otherwise consents, the federal district courts of the United States shall be the sole and exclusive forum for any action asserting a cause of action arising under the Securities Act of 1933 or any rule or regulation promulgated thereunder.

The foregoing description of the Bylaws does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the Bylaws, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
