Effective October 19, 2023, the Board of Directors of The Coca-Cola Company (the “Company”) adopted and approved amended and restated by-laws (the “Amended and Restated By-Laws”). Among other updates, the Amended and Restated By-Laws:

modernize shareowner meeting and voting mechanics throughout Article I to, among other things, set the default location of annual meetings to be the Company’s principal executive offices, provide explicitly for virtual shareowner meetings throughout Article I, clarify the manner in which a meeting of shareowners (including a virtual shareowner meeting) may be adjourned without having to provide additional notice, and clarify certain other meeting notice, quorum, adjournment, and record date procedures;
clarify procedures in Article I, Section 10 with respect to notice of shareowner business at annual shareowner meetings, including to provide that notice of proposed shareowner business other than director nominations must be received not earlier than close of business on the 150th day and not later than close of business on the 120th day prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year’s annual meeting;
clarify Article I, Section 11 with respect to the election of directors, including to provide for shareowner notice mechanics for additional directorships resulting from an increase in the number of directors to be elected at an annual meeting after the time period for shareowner nominations has passed;
update Article II to, among other things, remove the default requirement that the size of the Board of Directors be set at 20 absent a different Board resolution, clarify that a regular meeting of the Board of Directors may be held without notice immediately after the annual meeting of shareowners, and set a minimum quorum of not less than one-third of the total authorized number directors at the time;
update committee operating mechanics in Article III to allow committee members to unanimously appoint another director to act in place of any absent or disqualified member and to provide explicitly that committees may create subcommittees from time to time;
update Article V to remove “Chairman of the Board” and “Vice Chairman” as officer titles and to remove detailed reporting requirements related to the Treasurer and Chief of Internal Audits; and
make certain additional technical, conforming, and modernizing revisions and clarifications and other administrative changes.
