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

On and effective as of May 24, 2012, the Board of Directors of EnerSys amended its Bylaws to provide for a majority voting standard in uncontested director elections, instead of the previous plurality voting standard (the “Bylaw Amendment”), and also approved conforming changes to EnerSys’ Corporate Governance Guidelines to make them consistent with the voting standards provided for in the Bylaw Amendment (the “Guidelines Amendment”). Under the new majority voting standard, a director must be elected by the vote of the majority of votes cast, which means that the number of shares voted “for” the nominee’s election must exceed the number of shares voted “against” the nominee’s election. If an incumbent director receives more “against” than “for” votes, in accordance with the Guidelines Amendment, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will consider such director’s contingent resignation and recommend to the Board of Directors the action to be taken. The Board of Directors will act on such recommendation and publicly disclose its decision and the rationale behind such decision within 90 days from the date of the certification of the election results. The plurality voting standard will continue to apply to contested director elections pursuant to the Bylaw Amendment. A copy of the Bylaw Amendment is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1.


Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure

On May 29, 2012, EnerSys issued an earnings press release discussing its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2012. The press release, attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference, is being furnished to the SEC and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for any purpose.


Item 8.01. Other Events

On May 24, 2012, the Board of Directors of EnerSys authorized the repurchase of up to $50 million of its common stock. The authorized repurchases will be made from time to time in either the open market or through privately negotiated transactions and in compliance with its credit facility. The timing, volume and nature of share repurchases will be at the sole discretion of management, dependent on market conditions, other priorities for cash investment, applicable securities laws, and other factors, and may be suspended or discontinued at any time. No assurance can be given that any particular amount of common stock will be repurchased. All or part of the repurchases may be implemented under a Rule 10b5-1 trading plan, which would allow repurchases under pre-set terms at times when EnerSys might otherwise be prevented from doing so under insider trading laws or because of self-imposed blackout periods. This repurchase program is valid until March 31, 2013 and may be modified, extended or terminated by the Board of Directors at any time. It is in addition to EnerSys’ previously authorized repurchase program of up to the number of shares exercised through previous stock option awards and common stock issued under its 2010 Equity Incentive Plan.
