STOCKHOLDERS MEETINGS AND VOTING

1.1. Annual Meeting. The annual meeting of the stockholders shall be held on the second Monday in April of each year at 10:00 a.m., unless a different date or time is fixed by the Board of Directors and stated in the notice of the meeting. Failure to hold an annual meeting on the stated date shall not affect the validity of any corporate action.

1.2. Special Meetings. Special meetings of the stockholders, for any purposes, unless otherwise prescribed by statute, may be called by (i) the Board of Directors or (ii) by the Chairman of the Board upon the written demand of the holders of not less than one-fourth of all the votes entitled to be cast on any issue proposed to be considered at the meeting. The demand shall describe the purposes for which the meeting is to be held and shall be signed, dated and delivered to the Secretary.

1.3. Place of Meetings. Meetings of the stockholders shall be held at any place in or out of Delaware designated by the Board of Directors. If a meeting place is not designated by the Board of Directors, the meeting shall be held at the Corporation’s principal office.

1.4. Notice of Meetings. Written or printed notice stating the date, time and place of the stockholders meeting and, in the case of a special meeting or a meeting for which special notice is required by law, the purposes for which the meeting is called, shall be delivered by the Corporation to each stockholder entitled to vote at the meeting and, if required by law, to any other stockholders entitled to receive notice, not earlier than 60 days nor less than 10 days before the meeting date. Notice shall be deemed given at the time it is (a) personally delivered to the recipient, (b) deposited in the mail or delivered to a common carrier or courier with regularly scheduled deliveries with first-class postage or delivery charges prepaid, addressed to the stockholder’s address shown in the Corporation’s stockholder records, or (c) actually transmitted to the recipient using electronic means.

1.5. Waiver of Notice. A stockholder may at any time waive any notice required by law, these Bylaws or the Certificate of Incorporation. The waiver shall be in writing, be signed by the stockholder entitled to the notice and be delivered to the Corporation for inclusion in the minutes for filing with the corporate records. A stockholder’s attendance at a meeting waives objection to (i) lack of notice or defective notice of the meeting, unless the stockholder at the beginning of the meeting objects to holding the meeting or transacting business at the meeting, and (ii) consideration of a particular matter at the meeting that is not within the purposes described in the meeting notice, unless the stockholder objects to considering the matter when it is presented.

1.6. Fixing of Record Date. In order that the corporation may determine the stockholders entitled to notice of or to vote at any meeting of stockholders or any adjournment thereof, or to express consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting, or entitled to receive payment of any dividend or other distribution or allotment of any rights, or entitled to exercise any rights in respect of any change, conversion or exchange of stock or for the purpose of any other lawful action, the Board of Directors may fix a record date, which record date shall not precede the date upon which the resolution fixing the record date is adopted by the Board of Directors and which record date: (1) in the case of determination of stockholders entitled to vote at any meeting of stockholders or adjournment thereof, shall, unless otherwise required by law, not be more than sixty nor less than ten days before the date of such meeting; (2) in the case of determination of stockholders entitled to express consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting, shall not be more than ten days from the date upon which the resolution fixing the record date is adopted by the Board of Directors; and (3) in the case of any other action, shall not be more than sixty days prior to such other action. If no record date is fixed: (1) the record date for determining stockholders entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of stockholders shall be at the close of business on the day next preceding the day on which notice is given, or, if notice is waived, at the close of business on the day next preceding the day on which the meeting is held; (2) the record date for determining stockholders entitled to express consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting when no prior action of the Board of Directors is required by law, shall be the first date on which a signed written consent setting forth the action taken or proposed to be taken is delivered to the corporation in accordance with applicable law, or, if prior action by the Board of Directors is required by law, shall be at the close of business on the day on which the Board of Directors adopts the resolution taking such prior action; and (3) the record date for determining stockholders for any other purpose shall be at the close of business on the day on which the Board of Directors adopts the resolution relating thereto. A determination of stockholders of record entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of stockholders shall apply to any adjournment of the meeting; provided, however, that the Board of Directors may fix a new record date for the adjourned meeting.

1.7. Stockholders List for Meeting. After a record date for a meeting is fixed, the Corporation shall prepare an alphabetical list of all stockholders entitled to notice of the stockholders meeting. The list shall be arranged by voting group and, within each voting group, by class or series of shares, and it shall show the address of and number of shares held by each stockholder. The stockholders list shall be available for inspection by any stockholder, upon proper demand as may be required by law, beginning two business days after notice of the meeting is given and continuing through the meeting, at the Corporation’s principal office or at a place identified in the meeting notice in the city where the meeting will be held. The Corporation shall make the stockholders list available at the meeting, and any stockholder or the stockholder’s agent or attorney shall be entitled to inspect the list at any time during the meeting or any adjournment. Refusal or failure to prepare or make available the stockholders list does not affect the validity of action taken at the meeting.

1.8. Quorum; Adjournment.

(1) Shares entitled to vote as a separate voting group may take; action on a matter at a meeting only if a quorum of those shares exists with respect to that matter. A majority of the votes entitled to be cast on the matter by the voting group constitutes a quorum of that voting group for action on that matter.

(2) A majority of votes represented at the meeting, or the Chairman of the Board on his own motion, in either case whether or not a quorum exists, may adjourn the meeting from time to time to a different time and place without further notice to any stockholder of any adjournment, except that notice is required if a new record date is or must be set for the adjourned meeting. At an adjourned meeting at which a quorum is present, any business may be transacted that might have been transacted at the meeting originally held.

(3) Once a share is represented for any purpose at a meeting, it shall be present for quorum purposes for the remainder of the meeting and for any adjournment of that meeting unless a new record date is or must be set for the adjourned meeting. A new record date must be set if the meeting is adjourned to a date more than 30 days after the date fixed for the original meeting.

1.9. Voting Requirements; Action Without Meeting.

(1) If a quorum exists, action on a matter, other than the election of directors, by a voting group is approved if the votes cast within the voting group favoring the action exceed the votes cast opposing the action unless a greater number of affirmative votes is required by law or the Certificate of Incorporation and except as provided in Section 1.9(2). Unless otherwise provided in the Certificate of Incorporation, directors are elected by a plurality of the votes cast by the shares entitled to vote in the election at a meeting at which a quorum is present.

 

 (2) The provisions set forth in Section 2.2, below, and in this Section 1.9(2) may not be amended, altered, changed or repealed in any respect unless such action is approved by either the Board of Directors or by an affirmative vote of the holders of not less than two-thirds of the outstanding shares of Common Stock and the outstanding shares of Preferred Stock entitled to vote on each matter on which the holders of record of Common Stock shall be entitled to vote, such Common Stock and Preferred Stock voting together and not by separate classes.

(3) Action required or permitted by law to be taken at a stockholders meeting may be taken without a meeting, without prior notice and without a vote by the written consent of the holders of outstanding stock having not less than the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to authorize such action at a meeting at which all shares entitled to vote thereon were present. The action must be evidenced by one or more written consents describing the action taken, signed by all the stockholders entitled to vote on the action and delivered to the Secretary for inclusion in the minutes for filing with the corporate records. Stockholder action taken by written consent is effective when the last stockholder signs the consent, unless the consent specifies an earlier or later effective date.

1.10. Proxies. A stockholder may vote shares in person or by proxy. A stockholder may appoint a proxy by signing an appointment form either personally or by the stockholder’s attorney-in-fact. An appointment of a proxy is effective when received by the Secretary or other officer of the Corporation authorized to tabulate votes. An appointment is valid for 11 months unless a different period is provided in the appointment form. An appointment is revocable by the stockholder unless the appointment form conspicuously states that it is irrevocable and the appointment is coupled with an interest that has not been extinguished.

1.11. Meeting by Telephone Conference. Stockholders may participate in an annual or special meeting by, or conduct the meeting through, use of any means of communications by which all stockholders participating may simultaneously hear each other or communicate with each other during the meeting, except that no meeting for which a written notice is sent to stockholders may be conducted by this means unless the notice states that participation in this manner is permitted and describes how any stockholder desiring to participate in this manner may notify the Corporation. Participation in a meeting by this means shall constitute presence in person at the meeting.

1.12. Proper Business for Stockholders’ Meeting. To be properly brought before the meeting, business must be either (i) specified in the notice of meeting (or any supplement thereto) given by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, (ii) otherwise properly brought before a meeting by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, or (iii) otherwise properly brought before the meeting by a stockholder. In addition to any other applicable requirements contained in the Certificate of Incorporation, these Bylaws, or under law, for business to be properly brought before an annual meeting by a stockholder, the stockholder must have given timely notice thereof in writing to the Secretary of the Corporation. To be timely, a stockholder’s notice must be delivered to or mailed and received at the principal executive office of the Corporation not less than 50 days nor more than 75 days prior to the meeting; provided, however, that in the event that less than 65 days’ notice or prior public disclosure of the date of the meeting is given or made to stockholders, notice by the stockholder to be timely must be so received not later than the close of business on the 10th day following the day on which such notice of the date of the annual meeting was mailed or such public disclosure was made, whichever first occurs. A stockholder’s notice to the Secretary shall set forth (1) one or more matters appropriate for stockholder action that the stockholder proposes to bring before the meeting, (ii) a brief description of the matters desired to be brought before the meeting and the reasons for conducting such business at the meeting, (iii) the name and record address of the stockholder, (iv) the class and number of shares of the Corporation that the stockholder owns or is entitled to vote and (v) any material interest of the stockholder in such matters. Notwithstanding anything in these Bylaws to the contrary, no business shall be conducted at the annual meeting except in accordance with the procedure set forth in this Section 1.12; provided, however, that nothing in this Section 1.12 shall be deemed to preclude discussion by any stockholder of any business properly brought before the annual meeting. The Chairman of the Board, or the Vice Chairman of the Board in the absence of the Chairman of the Board, shall, if the facts warrant, determine and declare to the meeting that the business was not properly brought before the meeting in accordance with the provisions of this Section 1.12 and if the Chairman of the Board, or the Vice Chairman of the Board in the absence of the Chairman of the Board, should so determine, shall so declare to the meeting any such business not properly brought before the meeting shall not be transacted.
