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

On April 29, 2022, the Board of Directors of Vector Group Ltd. (the “Board”) amended and restated Vector’s Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Amended and Restated Bylaws”) to implement a majority voting standard in uncontested director elections. Section 2 of Article III of the Amended and Restated Bylaws provides that an uncontested election of directors will be decided by the affirmative vote of greater than 50% of the votes cast for or against such director and sets forth the determination of what would constitute a contested election. Section 2 of Article III provides that if an incumbent director fails, in an uncontested election, to receive the vote required to be elected, then such director will tender his or her resignation to the Board. However, in the event of a contested election of directors, directors shall continue to be elected by the highest number of votes, or a plurality of votes, cast.

The foregoing summary and description of the provisions of the Amended and Restated Bylaws does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amended and Restated Bylaws, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 3.2 of this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
