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

At its special meeting on February 22, 2019, the Board of Directors of Protective Insurance Corporation adopted and approved an amendment and restatement of Article 4, Section 4.2 of its Code of Bylaws.   As amended and restated, Article 4, Section 4.2 now reads as follows:

Section 4.2. Number and Terms of Office.  There shall be no less than six (6) but no more than nine (9) Directors of the Corporation, who shall be elected at each annual meeting of the shareholders, to serve for a term of one (1) year and until their successors shall be chosen and qualified, or until removal, resignation or death.  If the annual meeting of the shareholders is not held at the time designated in this Code of By-Laws, such failure shall not cause any defect in the existence of the Corporation, and the Directors then in office shall hold over until their successors shall be chosen and qualified.

This section was amended to remove the provision which set the number of directors at ten (10), and to instead provide for an allowable range of the number of directors as provided above. 

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
