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

On December 9, 2020, the board of directors of SeaSpine Holdings Corporation (the “Company”) approved amendments to the Company’s amended and restated bylaws, as amended (the “Bylaws”), effective as of that date. The amendments add a forum selection provision as a new Section 7.10 to the Bylaws and amend Section 7.9 of the Bylaws to include the new Section 7.10 as a section of the Bylaws that require the supermajority vote of the Company’s stockholders to be amended, altered or repealed.

The new Section 7.10 generally provides that: (a) unless the Company consents in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the federal district courts of the United States of America shall be the sole and exclusive forum for the resolution of any complaint asserting a cause of action arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, solely to the extent that clause (v) of Article IX of the amended and restated certificate of incorporation of the Company (the “Certificate of Incorporation”) does not to apply to such complaint; and (b) any person or entity purchasing or otherwise acquiring or holding any interest in any security of the Company shall be deemed to have notice of and consented to the provisions of Section 7.10. Clause (v) of Article IX of the Certificate of Incorporation generally provides that, unless the Company consents in writing to the selection of an alternate forum, the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware shall, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, be the sole and exclusive forum for any action asserting a claim against the Company or any director, officer or employee of the Company governed by the internal affairs doctrine.

The foregoing summary of the amendments to the Bylaws is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Bylaws, as amended effective as of December 9, 2020, a copy of which is filed as an exhibit to this report and incorporated herein by reference.
