Section 4.               Notice of Meetings of Stockholders.  Written notice of the date, time and place and, in the case of any special meeting, the purpose or purposes of the special meeting, shall be mailed, postage prepaid, not less than 10 nor more than 60 days before such meeting, to each stockholder entitled to vote at such meeting at the address of such stockholder as the same appears upon the books of the Corporation.

 

Section 5.               Voting Records.  The officer who has charge of the stock ledger of the Corporation shall prepare and make, at least 10 days before every meeting of stockholders, a complete list of the stockholders entitled to vote at the meeting, arranged in alphabetical order, and showing the address of each stockholder and the number of shares registered in the name of each stockholder.  Such list shall be open to the examination of any stockholder, for any purpose germane to the meeting, during ordinary business hours, for a period of at least 10 days prior to the meeting, either at a place within the city where the meeting is to be held, which place shall be specified in the notice of the meeting, or, if not so specified, at the place where the

 



 

meeting is to be held.  The list shall also be produced and kept at the time and place of the meeting during the whole time thereof, and may be inspected by any stockholder who is present.  Upon the willful neglect or refusal of the directors to produce such a list at any meeting for the election of directors, they shall be ineligible for election to any office at such meeting.  The stock ledger shall be the only evidence as to who are the stockholders entitled to examine the stock ledger, the list required by this provision or the books of the Corporation or to vote in person or by proxy at any meeting of the stockholders.

 

Section 6.               Waiver of Notice.  A stockholder may waive notice of a meeting of stockholders.  A written waiver, signed by the stockholder entitled to notice, whether given before, at or after the meeting, shall be deemed equivalent to notice.  Attendance of a stockholder at a meeting shall constitute a waiver of notice of such meeting, except when the stockholder attends a meeting for the express purpose of objecting at the beginning of the meeting to the transaction of any business because the meeting is not lawfully called or convened.

 

Section 7.               Quorum and Adjournment.  The holders of a majority of the voting power of the shares present in person or by proxy entitled to vote at a meeting shall constitute a quorum at all meetings of the stockholders for the transaction of business, except as otherwise provided by statute or by the Certificate of Incorporation.  If, however, such quorum shall not be present or represented at any meeting of the stockholders, the stockholders entitled to vote thereat, present in person or represented by proxy, shall have the power to adjourn the meeting from time to time, without notice other than announcement at the meeting, until a quorum shall be present or represented.  At such adjourned meeting at which a quorum shall be present or represented, any business may be transacted which might have been transacted at the meeting as originally noticed.  The stockholders present at a duly called or held meeting at which a quorum is present may continue to transact business until adjournment, even though the withdrawal of a number of stockholders originally present leaves less than the proportion or number otherwise required for a quorum.

 

Section 8.               Voting Rights.  A stockholder may cast his vote in person or by proxy. When a quorum is present at the time a meeting is convened, the vote of the holders of a majority of the shares entitled to vote on any question present in person or by proxy shall decide such question unless the question is one upon which, by express provision of the applicable statute or the Certificate of Incorporation, a different vote is required, in which case such express provision shall govern and control the decision of such question.

 

Section 9.               Manner of Voting.  Each stockholder shall at every meeting of the stockholders be entitled to one vote in person or by proxy for each share of the capital stock having voting power held by such stockholder, but no proxy shall be valid after three years from its date, unless the proxy expressly provides for a longer period.

 

Section 10.             Record Date.  The Board of Directors may fix a date, not less than 10 nor more than 60 days preceding the date of any meeting of stockholders, as a record date for the determination of the stockholders entitled to notice of and to vote at such meeting, and in such case only stockholders of record on the date so fixed, or their legal representatives, shall be entitled to notice of and to vote at such meeting, notwithstanding any transfer of any shares on the books of the Corporation after any record date so fixed.  The Board of Directors may close the books of the Corporation against transfers of shares during the whole or any part of such period.

 

Section 11.             Organization of Meetings.  The Chief Executive Officer shall preside at all meetings of the stockholders, and in his or her absence any person chosen by the stockholders present shall act as chairman.  The Secretary shall act as secretary of all meetings of the stockholders, and in his or her absence any person appointed by the chairman shall act as secretary.

 

Section 12.             Inspection.  The chairman of the meeting may at any time appoint two or more inspectors to serve at any meeting of the stockholders.  Any inspector may be removed, and a new inspector or inspectors appointed, by the Board of Directors at any time.  Such inspectors shall decide upon the qualifications of voters, accept and count the votes for and against the question, respectively, declare the results of such vote, and subscribe and deliver to the secretary of the meeting a certificate stating the number of

 



 

shares of stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote thereon and the number of shares voted for and against the question, respectively.  The inspectors need not be stockholders of the Corporation, and any director or officer of the Corporation may be an inspector on any question other than a vote for or against his or her election to any position with the Corporation or on any other question in which he or she may be directly interested.  Before acting as herein provided, each inspector shall subscribe an oath faithfully to execute the duties of an inspector with strict impartiality and according to the best of his or her ability.

 

Section 13.             Action Without a Meeting.  Unless otherwise provided in the Certificate of Incorporation, any action required or permitted to be taken at any annual or special meeting of the stockholders of the Corporation may be taken without a meeting, without prior notice and without a vote, if a consent in writing, setting forth the action so taken, shall be signed by the holders of outstanding stock having not less than the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to authorize or take such action at a meeting at which all shares entitled to vote thereon were present and voted.  Prompt notice of the taking of corporate action without a meeting by less than unanimous written consent shall be given to those stockholders who have not consented in writing.
