Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On March 25, 2010, the Board of Directors of Campbell Soup Company (the Corporation) approved and
adopted amendments to the By-Laws for the Corporation, effective as of that date, adding new
sections 8 and 9 under Article II.
The By-Laws were amended to implement advance notice provisions for director nominations and other
proposals, and to ensure that compliance with the notice procedures set forth in the By-Laws is the
exclusive means for stockholders to make nominations or submit other business at a stockholders
meeting, other than proposals governed by Rule 14a-8 under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934
(Rule 14a-8). Among other things, the amendments require stockholders who make proposals or give
advance notice of a director nomination to disclose all ownership interests in the Corporations
securities and rights to vote with respect to any security of the Corporation, and to provide
reasonably detailed descriptions of all agreements, arrangements and understandings between
proposing stockholders and other stockholders of the Corporation in connection with the proposed
business or nomination.
As a result of these amendments, a stockholder may nominate an individual for election as a
director or bring other business before the 2010 annual meeting (other than proposals governed by
Rule 14a-8) only by providing written notice to Campbell Soup Company, in the required form, on or
after August 21, 2010, and no later than September 19, 2010.
The above description of the amendments is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by
reference to the By-Laws, as amended, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this report and is
incorporated herein by reference.
