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

Effective January 20 2012, the Board of Directors of KBR, Inc. amended Section 7, Article II and Section 2, Article III of KBR’s bylaws (as so amended, the “Bylaws”) to read in their entirety as set forth in Exhibit 3.1 hereto, which, among other things, provides for a majority vote standard for uncontested election of Directors and to eliminate references to KBR’s classified Board. KBR’s Board of Directors has also approved a proposed amendment to its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Charter”), has recommended such amendment for approval by the Company’s stockholders and intends to include such proposed amendment for consideration and approval by its stockholders at its 2012 annual meeting that will provide for the phasing out of the Director classes, culminating in the election of all Directors annually beginning in 2014. The amendments to the Bylaws also eliminate language in Article Fifth, Sixth and Eighth that dealt with matters relating to KBR’s relationship with Halliburton Company when KBR was a wholly or majority owned subsidiary of Halliburton and which are no longer needed or relevant and the proposed amendment to the KBR Charter will make similar changes to the KBR Charter.  The description of the amendment to the KBR Bylaws is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the bylaw amendment, which is included in the Amended and Restated Bylaws of KBR that is listed under Item 9.01 as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

ITEM 9.01                      Financial Statements and Exhibits.


3.1           Amended and Restated Bylaws of KBR, Inc., effective January 20, 2012.
