In no event shall the Public Disclosure of an adjournment or postponement of an annual meeting commence a new time period (or extend any time period) for the giving of notice by a Proposing Stockholder as described herein.

(b) Special Meetings of Stockholders. Only such business shall be conducted at a special meeting of stockholders as shall have been brought before the meeting pursuant to the corporation’s notice of meeting with respect to such special meeting. Nominations of persons for election to the Board of Directors may be made at a special meeting of stockholders (i) by or at the direction of the Board of Directors or any committee thereof or (ii) by any stockholder of the corporation who is a stockholder of record at the time the notice provided for in this Section 8 is delivered, who is entitled to vote at the meeting and upon such election and who complies with the notice procedures set forth in this Section 8. In the event the corporation calls a special meeting of stockholders for the purpose of electing one or more directors to the Board of Directors, any such stockholder entitled to vote in such election of directors may nominate a person or persons (as the case may be) for election to such positions as specified in the corporation’s notice of meeting if a stockholder’s notice meeting the requirements of paragraph (c) of this Section 8 (such provisions to apply mutatis mutandis to such stockholder as if it was the “Proposing Stockholder” referred to therein) not earlier than the close of business on the later of the 120th day prior to such special meeting nor later than the close of business on the 90th day prior to such special meeting or if later, the tenth day following the date of Public Disclosure of the date of the special meeting


and of the nominees proposed by the Board of Directors to be elected at such meeting. In no event shall the Public Disclosure of an adjournment or postponement of a special meeting commence a new time period (or extend any time period) for the giving of a Proposing Stockholders notice required hereby.

The corporation may require any proposed nominee to furnish such other information as it may reasonably require to determine the eligibility of such proposed nominee to serve as a director of the corporation or that could be material to a reasonable stockholder’s understanding of the independence, or lack thereof, of such nominee.

The foregoing notice requirements of this paragraph (c) shall be deemed satisfied by a stockholder with respect to business other than a nomination if the stockholder has notified the corporation of his, her or its intention to present a proposal at a meeting and such stockholder’s proposal has been included in a proxy statement that has been prepared by the corporation to solicit proxies for use at such meeting.

Except as otherwise expressly provided in any applicable rule or regulation promulgated under the Exchange Act, only such persons who are nominated in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 8 shall be eligible to be elected at an annual or special meeting of stockholders of the corporation to serve as directors and only such business shall be conducted at a meeting of stockholders as shall have been brought before the meeting in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 8. Unless otherwise required by law, if a Proposing Stockholder intending to propose business or make nominations at a meeting pursuant to this Section 8 does not provide the information required under paragraph (c) of this Section 8 to the corporation promptly following the later of the record date or the date notice of the record date is first Publicly Disclosed, or the Proposing Stockholder (or a qualified representative of the Proposing Stockholder) does not appear at the meeting to present the proposed business or nominations, such business or nominations shall not be considered, notwithstanding that proxies in respect of such business or nominations may have been received by the corporation. Except as otherwise provided by law, the presiding officer of the meeting shall have the power and duty (i) to determine whether a nomination or any business proposed to be brought before the meeting was made or proposed, as the case may be, in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 8 (including whether the stockholder or beneficial owner, if any, on whose behalf the nomination or proposal is made, solicited (or is part of a group which solicited) or did not so solicit, as the case may be, proxies or votes in support of such stockholder’s nominee or proposal in compliance with such stockholder’s representation as required by this Section 8); and (ii) if any proposed nomination or business was not made or proposed in compliance with this Section 8, to declare that such nomination shall be disregarded or that such proposed business shall not be transacted. The requirements of this Section 8 shall apply to any business or nominations to be brought before an annual meeting by a stockholder, whether such business or nominations are to be included in the corporation’s proxy statement pursuant to Rule 14a-8 of the Exchange Act or presented to stockholders by means of an independently financed proxy solicitation. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 8, a stockholder shall also comply with all applicable requirements of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder with respect to the matters set forth in this Section 8; provided, however, that any references in these Bylaws to the Exchange Act or the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder are not intended to and shall not limit any requirements applicable to nominations or proposals as to any other business to be considered pursuant to this Section 8 and compliance with paragraphs (a) and (b) of this Section 8 shall be the exclusive means for a stockholder to make nominations or submit other business (other than, as provided in the last sentence of paragraph (a), business other than nominations brought properly under and in compliance with Rule 14a-8 of the Exchange Act, as may be amended from time to time). Nothing in this Section 8 shall be deemed to affect any rights of (A) the stockholders to request inclusion of proposals or nominations in the corporation’s proxy statement pursuant to applicable rules and regulations promulgated under the Exchange Act; or (B) the holders of any series of Preferred Stock to elect directors pursuant to any applicable provisions of the Articles of Incorporation. The requirements of this Section 8 are included to provide the corporation notice of a stockholder’s intention to bring business or nominations before a meeting and shall in no event be construed as imposing upon any stockholder the requirement to seek approval from the corporation as a condition precedent to bringing any such business or make such nominations before a meeting.

ARTICLE II

Directors

Section 1. Management of Corporation. The business of the corporation shall be managed by its Board of Directors which may exercise all such powers of the corporation and do all such lawful acts and things as are not by statute or by the Articles of Incorporation or by these Bylaws directed or required to be exercised or done by the stockholders.

Section 2. Number, Term of Office and Classification. The number of directors which shall constitute the entire Board of Directors shall be at least one. The number of directors may from time to time be increased or decreased to not less than one nor more than fifteen as determined by resolution of the Board of Directors. Directors need not be stockholders. The directors shall be divided into three classes, designated Class I, Class II, and Class III. Each class shall consist, as nearly as possible, of one-third of the total number of directors constituting the entire Board of Directors, and in any event at least one-fourth in number of the directors constituting the entire Board of Directors shall be elected annually. The term of each incumbent director of the Company as of the date upon which these Bylaws were amended to provide for three classes of directors shall terminate at the next annual meeting of stockholders (the “Effective Time”), and prior to the Effective Time the Board of Directors shall designate the class to which each director nominee for election at the next annual meeting of stockholders shall be a member if elected. The initial term of the directors in Class I shall extend until the first annual meeting of stockholders following the Effective Time; the initial term of directors in Class II shall extend until the second annual meeting of stockholders following the Effective Time; and the initial term of the directors in Class III shall extend until the third annual meeting of stockholders following the Effective Time. At each succeeding annual meeting of stockholders, successors to directors of the class whose term expires at such annual meeting will be elected to serve for three-year terms and until their successors are elected and qualified or they resign or are removed. Directors for each class being elected at an annual meeting of stockholders will be elected by a plurality of the votes cast by the holders of shares entitled to vote in such an election.

In the event the number of directors constituting any class of directors does not constitute at least one-fourth of the entire board of directors to be elected at the annual meeting of stockholders, the Board of Directors shall take, at or prior to such annual meeting, such action as it deems necessary or appropriate to ensure that at least one-fourth of the directors constituting the entire Board of Directors is elected at such annual meeting, including, without limitation, increasing the number of directors constituting any class of directors.

In the event of any changes in the number of directors, each director then continuing to serve shall nevertheless continue as a director of the class of which such director is a member until the expiration of such director’s current term, or prior death, resignation or removal. The Board of Directors shall specify the class to which a newly created directorship shall be allocated.


Section 3. Vacancies. Vacancies in the Board of Directors including those caused by an increase in the number of directors, may be filled by a majority of the remaining directors, though less than a quorum, or by a sole remaining director, and each director so elected shall hold office until his successor is elected at an annual or special meeting of the stockholders. The holders of two-thirds of the outstanding shares of stock entitled to vote may at any time peremptorily terminate the term of office of all or any of the directors by vote at a meeting called for such purpose. Such removal shall be effective immediately, even if successors are not elected simultaneously.6

A vacancy or vacancies in the Board of Directors shall be deemed to exist in case of the death, resignation or removal of any directors, or if the authorized number of directors be increased, or if the stockholders fail at any annual or special meeting of stockholders at which any director or directors are elected to elect the full authorized number of directors to be voted for at that meeting.

If the Board of Directors accepts the resignation of a director tendered to take effect at a future time, the Board or the stockholders shall have power to elect a successor to take office when the resignation is to become effective.

No reduction of the authorized number of directors shall have the effect of removing any director prior to the expiration of his term of office.

Section 4. Annual and Regular Meetings. Regular meetings of the Board of Directors shall be held at any place within or without the State which has been designated from time to time by resolution of the Board or by written consent of all members of the Board. In the absence of such designation regular meetings shall be held at the registered office of the corporation. Special meetings of the Board may be held either at a place so designated or at the registered office.

Regular meetings of the Board of Directors may be held without call or notice at such time and at such place as shall from time to time be fixed and determined by the Board of Directors.

Section 5. First Meeting. The first meeting of each newly elected Board of Directors shall be held immediately following the adjournment of the meeting of stockholders and at the place thereof. No notice of such meeting shall be necessary to the directors in order legally to constitute the meeting, provided a quorum be present. In the event such meeting is not so held, the meeting may be held at such time and place as shall be specified in a notice given as hereinafter provided for special meetings of the Board of Directors.

Section 6. Special Meetings. Special meetings of the Board of Directors may be called by the Chairman or the President or by any Vice-President or by any two directors.

Section 11. Special Compensation. The directors may be paid their expenses of attendance at each meeting of the Board of Directors and may be paid a fixed sum for attendance at each meeting of the Board of Directors or a stated salary as director.
