|ITEM 5.03.||Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year|
Amendment of Charter—Corporate Name Change
As reported previously on Form 8-K filed on October 29, 2020, on October 27, 2020, First Horizon’s Board of Directors approved an amendment to Article 1 of First Horizon’s Restated Charter, changing the corporate name from “First Horizon National Corporation” to “First Horizon Corporation.” Tennessee law does not require this name change to be approved by shareholders. First Horizon recently filed the amendment with the Tennessee Secretary of State’s office; the amendment became effective November 30, 2020.
Outstanding stock and other securities of First Horizon are not legally affected by the name change. First Horizon’s common stock continues to trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol FHN, and depositary shares related to outstanding preferred stock continue to trade under the symbols FHN PR A, FHN PR B, FHN PR C, FHN PR D, and FHN PR E. Valid stock certificates bearing First Horizon’s old name continue to be valid, and need not be exchanged for new ones. In addition, First Horizon’s outstanding debt and equity securities will not be issued new CUSIP numbers in connection with the name change.
First Horizon’s Charter amendment is filed as Exhibit 3.1.
Amendment of Bylaws—Corporate Name Change
The Board also approved conforming changes to First Horizon’s bylaws. The bylaw changes also became effective November 30, 2020.
First Horizon’s amended and restated Bylaws are filed as Exhibit 3.2.
