William L. Mack, Chairman of the Board, stated: "We are pleased to announce changes to the board of directors and enhancements to our corporate governance. Mike has been instrumental in transforming Mack-Cali since joining the Company in the summer of 2015, and we believe that his stewardship will lead to additional shareholder value as we move ahead."

In addition to adding Mr. DeMarco to the Board, the Company also adopted second amended and restated bylaws to implement certain amendments to further empower the Company's stockholders.  Pursuant to the bylaw amendments adopted by the Company, a stockholder, or a group of up to twenty stockholders, who has owned at least three percent (3%) of the Company for at least one year will generally have the right to propose amendments to the bylaws to be voted on by all stockholders. In addition, the new bylaws provide for a true majority vote standard for the election of directors, which will require each director who does not receive a majority of votes cast in an uncontested election to tender his or her resignation to the Board. 

The new bylaws also expand the opt out of the Maryland Control Share Acquisition Act to apply to all stockholders.  The Maryland Control Share Acquisition Act generally provides that holders of control shares of a Maryland corporation, which are defined as voting shares of stock that would entitle the acquiring person to exercise voting power in electing directors within one of three ranges of voting power specified in the statute, that are acquired in a control share acquisition, have no voting rights with respect to the control shares except to the extent approved by a vote of two-thirds majority of stockholders (excluding the holders of the control shares). 

The new bylaws also include other technical, clarifying and conforming amendments.  The complete text of the Company's new bylaws were included in a Current Report on Form 8-K that the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission today.
