6.

Other business.

For other business to be properly brought before an annual meeting of stockholders, the stockholder seeking to bring such other business before the meeting must have given timely notice thereof in writing to the President of the Corporation, and such business must be a proper matter for stockholder action. To be timely, a stockholder’s notice shall be delivered to or mailed, postage prepaid, and received by the President at the principal executive offices of the Corporation at least 120 days prior to the one-year anniversary date of the prior year’s annual meeting of stockholders; provided, however, that if the date of the annual meeting is more than 30 days before or more than 60 days after such anniversary date, a stockholder’s notice shall be timely if delivered not later than the close of business on the later of the 60th day prior to such annual meeting or the 10th day following the date on which public announcement of the date of such meeting is first made by the Corporation. Such stockholder’s notice shall set forth (a) a brief description of the business desired to be brought before the meeting, the reasons for


conducting such business at the meeting, and any material interest in such business of such stockholder and the beneficial owner, if any, on whose behalf the proposal is made, and (b) as to the stockholder giving notice and the beneficial owner, if any, on whose behalf the proposal is made, (i) the name and address of such stockholder, as they appear on the Corporation’s books, and of such beneficial owner, and (ii) the class and number of shares of the Corporation which are owned beneficially and of record by such stockholder and such beneficial owner.

Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 8, a stockholder seeking to bring such other business before the meeting shall also comply with all applicable requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the rules and regulations thereunder with respect to the matters set forth in this Section 8. Nothing in this Section 8 shall be deemed to affect any rights of stockholders to request inclusion of proposals in the Corporation’s proxy statement pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Section 9 - Voting. Except as otherwise provided by law or by the Certificate of Incorporation, holders of Common Stock of the Corporation shall be entitled to vote upon matters to be voted upon by the stockholders. At each meeting of stockholders held for any purpose, each stockholder of record of stock entitled to vote thereat shall be entitled to vote the shares of such stock standing in his name on the books of the Corporation on the date determined in accordance with Section 11 of this Article II, each such share entitling him to one vote. At all meetings of stockholders for the election of directors if a quorum is present, a plurality of the votes of the shares present in person or represented by proxy at the meeting and entitled to vote on the election of directors shall be sufficient to elect. All other elections and questions shall, unless otherwise provided by law, the Certificate of Incorporation or these By-Laws, or unless a separate vote by a class or series or classes or series is required, be decided by the affirmative vote of a majority in voting power of the shares of stock which are present in person or represented by proxy at the meeting and entitled to vote on the subject matter. The voting shall be by voice or by ballot as the Chairman may decide, except that upon demand for a vote by ballot on any question or election, made by any stockholder or his proxy present and entitled to vote on such question or election, such vote by ballot shall immediately be taken.

Section 10 - Voting List. The Secretary of the Corporation shall make, at least ten (10) days before each meeting of stockholders, a complete list of the stockholders entitled to vote at any such meeting or any adjournment thereof, with the address of and the number of shares registered in the name of each stockholder. Such list shall be opened to the examination of any stockholder, for any purpose germane to the meeting, during ordinary business hours, for a period of at least ten (10) days prior to the meeting, (i) on a reasonably accessible electronic network, provided that the information required to gain access to such list is provided with the notice of the meeting, or (ii) during ordinary business hours, at the principal place of business of the Corporation. Such list shall also be produced and kept at the time and place of the meeting during the whole time of the meeting and shall be subject to inspection by any stockholder who is present. The original stock transfer books shall be prima facie evidence as to who are the stockholders entitled to examine such list or transfer books or to vote at any meeting of stockholders.

If the requirements of this Section 10 have not been substantially complied with, the meeting shall, on the demand of any stockholder in person or by proxy, be adjourned until the requirements are complied with.

Section 11 - Record Dates (a) 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 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 other than stockholder action by written consent, the Board of Directors may fix a record date, which shall not precede the date such record date is fixed and shall not be more than sixty nor less than ten days before the date of such meeting, nor more than sixty days prior to any such other action. If no record date is fixed 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 and the record date for any purpose other than stockholder action by written consent 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 meeting; provided, however, that the Board of Directors may fix a new record date for the adjourned meeting. (b) In order that the Corporation may determine the stockholders entitled to consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting, 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 date shall not be more than 10 days after the date upon which the resolution fixing the record date is adopted by the Board of Directors. Any stockholder of record seeking to have the stockholders authorize or take corporate action by written consent shall, by written notice to the Secretary, request the Board of Directors to fix a record date. The Board of Directors shall promptly, but in all events within 10 days after the date, on which such a request is received, adopt a resolution fixing the record date. If no record date has been fixed by the Board of Directors within 10 days after the date on which such a request is received, the record date for determining stockholders entitled to consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting, when no prior action by the Board of Directors is required by applicable 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 by delivery to its registered office in the State of Delaware, its principal place of business, or any officer or agent of the Corporation having custody of the book in which proceedings of meetings of stockholders are recorded. Delivery made to the Corporation’s registered office shall be by hand or by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested. If no record date has been fixed by the Board of Directors and prior action by the Board of Directors is required by applicable law, the record date for determining stockholders entitled to consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting shall be at the close of business on the date on which the Board of Directors adopts the resolution taking such prior action.

Section 12 - Adjournment. Any meeting of stockholders, annual or special, may adjourn from time to time to reconvene at the same or some other place and notice need not be given of any such adjourned meeting if the time and place thereof are announced at the meeting at which the adjournment is taken. At the adjourned meeting, the Corporation may transact any business which might have been transacted at the original meeting. If the adjournment is for more than thirty days, or if after the adjournment a new record date is fixed for the adjourned meeting, a notice of the adjourned meeting shall be given to each stockholder of record entitled to vote at the meeting.

Section 13 - Action by Stockholders Without a Meeting. Any action required or permitted to be taken at any annual or special meeting of stockholders of the Corporation may be taken without a meeting, without prior notice and without a vote, if a consent or consents 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 and shall be delivered to the Corporation by delivery to its registered office in the State of Delaware, its principal place of business or to an officer or agent of the Corporation having custody of the book in which proceedings of meetings of stockholders are recorded. Delivery made to the Corporation’s registered office shall be by hand or by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested. Prompt notice of the taking of any action by written consent shall be given to stockholders who have not consented in writing and who, if the action had been taken at a meeting, would have been entitled to notice of the meeting if the record date for such meeting had been the date that written consents signed by a sufficient number of stockholders to take the action were delivered to the Corporation as provided herein.

Section 14 - Proxies. At any meeting of the stockholders, each stockholder entitled to vote thereat may vote either in person or by proxy executed in writing or granted or authorized in such other manner as is permitted under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware. Such proxy shall be filed with the Secretary at or before the meeting; provided, however, that no proxy shall be voted or acted upon after eleven months from its date, unless said proxy provides for a longer period. A proxy need not be sealed, witnessed or acknowledged.

Each director who does not have a continuing term as provided in the foregoing sentence (and each director for whom a continuing term has expired) may be removed with or without cause, by the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the shares then entitled to vote at an election of directors.


Section 6 - Organization. The Board of Directors, by majority vote, may from time to time appoint a Chairman of the Board who shall preside over its meetings. The period and terms of the appointment shall be determined by the Board of Directors. The Secretary of the Corporation, or an Assistant Secretary, or, in the discretion of the Chairman, any person appointed by him, shall act as secretary of the meeting.

Section 7 - Place of Meeting, etc. The Board of Directors may hold its meetings at such place or places within or without the State of Delaware as the Board of Directors may from time to time, by resolution determine, or (unless contrary to resolution of the Board of Directors), at such place as shall be specified in the respective notices or waivers of notice thereof. Unless otherwise restricted by law or by the Certificate of Incorporation, members of the Board of Directors or any committee thereof may participate in a meeting of the Board of Directors or such committee by means of a conference telephone or similar communications equipment by means of which all persons participating in the meeting can hear each other, and participation in a meeting pursuant to this Section 7 shall constitute presence at such meeting. The Chairman or any person appointed by him shall act as secretary of the meeting.

Section 8 - Annual Meeting. The Board of Directors may meet, without notice of such meeting, for the purpose of organization, the election of officers and the transaction of other business, on the same day as, at the place at which, and as soon as practicable after each annual meeting of stockholders is held. Such annual meeting of directors may be held at any other time or place specified in a notice given as hereinafter provided for special meetings of the Board of Directors, or in a waiver of notice thereof.

Section 9 - Regular Meetings. Regular meetings of the Board of Directors may be held at such times and places as may be fixed from time to time by action of the Board of Directors. Unless required by resolution of the Board of Directors, notice of any such meeting need not be given.

Notice of each such meeting shall be mailed to each director, addressed to him at his residence or usual place of business, not less than three (3) days before the date on which the meeting is to be held; or such notice shall be sent to each director at such place by telegraph, cable, telefax, telephone or wireless, or by electronic mail to an address previously provided by the director to the Corporation for delivery of such notices, in each such case not less than twenty-four (24) hours before the time at which the meeting is to be held. Every such notice shall state the time and place of the meeting. Notice of any adjourned or recessed meeting of the directors need not be given.

Section 11- Waivers of Notice of Meetings. Anything in these By-Laws or in any resolution adopted by the Board of Directors to the contrary notwithstanding, proper notice of any meeting of the Board of Directors shall be deemed to have been given to any director if such notice shall be waived by him in writing (including telegraph, cable, telefax, wireless, or by electronic mail) before or after the meeting. A director who attends a meeting shall be deemed to have had timely and proper notice thereof, unless he attends for the express purpose of objecting to the transaction of any business because the meeting is not lawfully called.

Section 12 - Quorum and Manner of Acting. A majority of the directors shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. Except as may otherwise be expressly provided by these By-Laws, the act of a majority of the directors present at any meeting at which a quorum is present, shall be the act of the Board of Directors. In the absence of a quorum, a majority of the directors present may adjourn the meeting from time to time until a quorum be had. The directors shall act only as a Board and the individual directors shall have no power as such.

Section 13 – Resignations - Any director of the Corporation may resign at any time, in writing, by notifying the Chief Executive Officer, or the President or the Secretary of the Corporation. Such resignation shall take effect at the time therein specified; and, unless otherwise specified, the acceptance of such resignation shall not be necessary to make it effective. A director is expected to resign from the Board if, at any time, he or she is: (1) under


indictment for, or is convicted of, a criminal offense involving dishonesty or breach of trust and the penalty for such offense could be imprisonment for more than one year; or (2) a person against whom a banking or regulatory agency has issued a cease and desist order for conduct involving dishonesty, breach of trust or for a violation of Regulation O or a successor regulation; or (3) found either by a regulatory agency or by a court to have (i) breached a fiduciary duty involving personal profit, or (ii) committed a willful violation of any law, rule or regulation governing banking, securities, commodities or insurance; or (4) the Board reasonably determines that such director’s conduct does not comport to the standards of conduct expected of directors as indicated by policies or practices established by the Board.

Section 14 - Manner of Fixing the Number of Directors; Vacancies. The number of directors authorized to serve shall be determined from time to time by resolution of the Board of Directors.

Any vacancy in the Board of Directors, caused by death, resignation, removal, disqualification, increase in the number of directors, or any other cause may be filled by the majority vote of the remaining directors then in office, though less than a quorum, at any regular meeting of the Board of Directors.

Section 15 - Committees. The Board of Directors may designate one or more Committees, each Committee to consist of one or more of the Directors of the Corporation, which to the extent provided in said resolution or resolutions, shall have and may exercise the powers of the Board of Directors in the management of the business and affairs of the Corporation to the fullest extent permitted by law and shall have power to authorize the seal of the Corporation to be affixed to all papers which may require it. Such Committee or Committees shall have such name or names as may be determined from time to time by resolution adopted by the Board of Directors.

In the absence or disqualification of any member of any Committee appointed by the Board, the member or members thereof present at any meeting and not disqualified from voting, whether or not he or they constitute a quorum, may unanimously appoint another member of the Board to act at a meeting in the place of any such absent or disqualified member, subject, however, to the right of the Board of Directors to designate one or more alternate members of such Committee, which alternate members all have power to serve, subject to such conditions as the Board may prescribe, as a member or members of said Committee during the absence or inability to act of any one or more members of said Committee. The Board of Directors shall have the power at any time to change the membership of any Committee, to fill vacancies in it, or to dissolve it. A Committee may make rules for the conduct of its business and shall act in accordance therewith, except as otherwise provided herein or required by law. A majority of the members of the Committee shall constitute a quorum. A Committee shall keep regular minutes of its proceedings and report the same to the Board when required.

The Chief Executive Officer, if he is a director, shall be a voting member of all Committees of the Board of Directors, except the Audit and Risk Management Committee, the Nominating & Corporate Governance Committee and the Compensation and Benefits Committee.

Section 16 - Directors’ Action Without a Meeting. Unless otherwise provided by the Certificate of Incorporation, any action required to be taken at a meeting of the directors, or any action which may be taken at a meeting of the directors or of a committee, may be taken without a meeting if a consent in writing, setting forth the action so taken, shall be signed before such action by all the directors, or all the members of the committee, as the case may be. Such consent shall have the same force and effect as a unanimous vote.

Section 17 - Compensation. Directors, as such, may receive compensation as fixed by the resolution of the Board of Directors including annual fees for services as directors, and a fixed fee and expenses of attendance, if any, for attendance at each meeting of the Board. The compensation may be in the form of cash, stock of the Corporation, options to purchase stock of the Corporation, or a combination of the foregoing, as the Board in its discretion shall determine. Nothing in this section shall be construed to preclude a Director from serving the Corporation in any other capacity and receiving compensation therefor.


ARTICLE IV. OFFICERS

Section 1 - Officers. The officers of the Corporation shall be a Chairman of the Board of Directors, a President, a Chief Financial Officer and a Secretary, and where elected, one or more Vice-Presidents, and the holders of such other offices as may be established in accordance with the provisions of Section 3 of this Article. Any two or more offices may be held by the same person; except that the same person shall not be both President and Secretary or President and Treasurer.

Any such removal shall be without prejudice to the recovery of damages for breach of contract rights, if any, of the person removed. Election or appointment of an officer or agent shall not of itself, however, create contract rights.

Section 5 - Resignations. Any officer may resign at any time by giving written notice to the Board of Directors or the Chairman of the Board of Directors, the President or the Secretary of the Corporation. Any such resignation shall take effect at the date of receipt of such notice or at any later time therein specified; and, unless otherwise specified, the acceptance of such resignation shall not be necessary to make it effective. However, no resignation hereunder, or the acceptance thereof by the Board of Directors, shall prejudice the contract or the rights, if any, of the Corporation with respect to the person resigning.

Section 6 - Vacancies. A vacancy in any office because of death, resignation, removal, disqualification or any other cause shall be filled for the unexpired portion of the term by the Board of Directors.

ARTICLE VI. INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS

Section 1 - Each person who was or is made a party or is threatened to be made a party to or is otherwise involved in any action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative, or investigative (hereinafter a “proceeding”), by reason of the fact that he or she is or was a director or an officer of the Corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the Corporation as a director of another corporation, or of a partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, or as a plan fiduciary with respect to an employee benefit plan (hereinafter an “indemnitee”), whether the basis of such proceeding is alleged action in an official capacity as a Director, officer, or plan fiduciary or in any other capacity while serving as a Director, officer or plan fiduciary, shall be indemnified and held harmless by the Corporation to the fullest extent authorized by the Delaware General Corporation Law, as the same exists or may hereafter be amended, against all expense, liability and loss (including attorneys’ fees, judgments, fines, ERISA excise taxes or penalties and amounts paid in settlement) reasonably incurred or suffered by such indemnitee in connection therewith; provided, however, that, except as provided in Section 3 of this Article VI with respect to proceedings to enforce rights to indemnification, the Corporation shall indemnify any such indemnitee in connection with a proceeding (or part thereof) initiated by such indemnitee only if such proceeding (or part thereof) was authorized by the Board of Directors of the Corporation.

Section 2 - The right to indemnification conferred in Section 1 of this Article VI shall include the right to be paid by the Corporation the expenses (including attorney’s fees) incurred in defending any such proceeding in advance of its final disposition (hereinafter an “advancement of expenses”); provided, however, that, if the Delaware General Corporation Law requires, an advancement of expenses incurred by an indemnitee in his or her capacity as a director or officer (and not in any other capacity in which service was or is rendered by such indemnitee, including, without limitation, service to an employee benefit plan) shall be made only upon delivery to the Corporation of an undertaking (hereinafter an “undertaking”), by or on behalf of such indemnitee, to repay all amounts so advanced if it shall ultimately be determined by final judicial decision from which there is no further right to appeal (hereinafter a “final adjudication”) that such indemnitee is not entitled to be indemnified for such expenses under this Section 2 or otherwise. The rights to indemnification and to the advancement of expenses conferred in Section 1 and 2 of this Article VI shall be contract rights and such rights shall continue as to an indemnitee who has ceased to be a Director or officer and shall inure to the benefit of the indemnitee’s heirs, executors and administrators.

Section 3 - If a claim under Sections 1 or 2 of this Article VI is not paid in full by the Corporation within sixty (60) days after a written claim has been received by the Corporation, except in the case of a claim for an advancement of expenses, in which case the applicable period shall be twenty (20) days, the indemnitee may at any time thereafter bring suit against the Corporation to recover the unpaid amount of the claim. If successful in whole or in part in any such suit, or in a suit brought by the Corporation to recover an advancement of expenses pursuant to the terms of an undertaking, the indemnitee shall be entitled to be paid also the expense of prosecuting or defending such suit. In (i) any suit brought by the indemnitee to enforce a right to indemnification hereunder (but not in a suit brought by the indemnitee to enforce a right to an advancement of expenses) it shall be a defense that, and (ii) in any suit brought by the Corporation to recover an advancement of expenses pursuant to the terms of an undertaking, the Corporation shall be entitled to recover such expenses upon a final adjudication that, the indemnitee has not met any applicable standard for indemnification set forth in the Delaware General Corporation Law. Neither the failure of the Corporation (including its Board of Directors, independent legal counsel, or its stockholders) to have made a determination prior to the commencement of such suit that indemnification of the indemnitee is proper in the circumstances because the indemnitee has met the applicable standard of conduct set forth in the Delaware General Corporation Law, nor an actual determination by the Corporation (including its Board of Directors, independent legal counsel, or its stockholders) that the indemnitee has not met such applicable standard of conduct, shall create a presumption that the indemnitee has not met the applicable standard of conduct or, in the case of such a suit brought by the indemnitee, be a defense to such suit. In any suit brought by the indemnitee to enforce a right to indemnification or to an advancement of expenses hereunder, or brought by the Corporation to recover an advancement of expenses pursuant to the terms of an undertaking, the burden of proving that the indemnitee is not entitled to be indemnified, or to such advancement of expenses, under this Article VI or otherwise shall be on the Corporation.


Section 4 - The rights to indemnification and to the advancement of expenses conferred in this Article VI shall not be exclusive of any other right which any person may have or hereafter acquire under any statute, the Corporation’s Certificate of Incorporation, By-Laws, agreement, vote of stockholders or disinterested Directors or otherwise.

Section 5 - The Corporation may maintain insurance, at its expense, to protect itself and any Director, officer, employee or agent of the Corporation or of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise against any expense, liability or loss, whether or not the Corporation would have the power to indemnify such person against such expense, liability or loss under the Delaware General Corporation Law.

Section 6 - The Corporation may, to the extent authorized from time to time by the Board of Directors, grant rights to indemnification and to the advancement of expenses to any employee or agent of the Corporation, or any person serving at the request of the Corporation as an officer, employee or agent of another entity, to the fullest extent of the provisions of this Section with respect to the indemnification and advancement of expenses of Directors and officers of the Corporation.
