Section 3. Special Meetings. A special meeting of the stockholders for any purpose or purposes may be called at any time by the Chairman of the Board, if any, the President or by order of the Board of Directors and shall be called by the President or the Secretary upon the written request therefor delivered to the President or Secretary signed by stockholders holding of record more than 50% of the outstanding shares of stock of the Corporation entitled to vote at such meeting. Such written request shall state the purpose or purposes for which such meeting is to be called and the call therefor shall be issued within 60 days after the receipt of said request. Business transacted at all special meetings shall be confined to the objects specifically stated in the call therefor.

Section 4. Notice of Meetings. Except as otherwise expressly required by law, written notice of each meeting of stockholders, whether annual or special, shall be given at least 10 and not more than 60 days before the date on which the meeting is to be held to each stockholder of record entitled to vote thereat by delivering a notice thereof to him or her personally or by mailing such notice in a postage prepaid envelope directed to him or her at his or her address as it appears on the stock ledger of the Corporation, unless he or she shall have filed with the Secretary of the Corporation a written request that notices intended for him or her be directed to another address, in which case such notice shall be directed to him or her at the address designated in such request. Notices of each meeting of stockholders, whether annual or special, shall set forth the time, place and purposes of the meeting. In lieu of written notice, notice may be given by electronic transmission if permitted by applicable law and if given in compliance therewith. If electronically transmitted, then notice is deemed given when transmitted and directed to a facsimile number or electronic mail address at which the stockholder has consented to receive notice. An affidavit of the Secretary or of the transfer agent or other agent of the Corporation that the notice has been given by a form of electronic transmission shall, in the absence of fraud, be prima facie evidence of the facts stated therein.

Section 5. List of Stockholders. The Secretary or any Assistant Secretary of the Corporation shall produce, at least 10 days before every meeting of stockholders, a complete list of the stockholders entitled to vote thereat, arranged in alphabetical order, and showing the address of each stockholder and the number of shares registered in his or her name. Such list shall be open for a period of at least 10 days, either on a reasonably accessible electronic network as permitted by law (provided that the information required to gain access to the list is provided with the notice of the meeting) or during ordinary business hours at the principal place of business of the Corporation, and shall be produced and kept at the time and place of the meeting (if the meeting is held at a place) during the whole time thereof and subject to the inspection of any stockholder who may be present. The original or duplicate stock ledger shall be the only evidence as to the stockholders entitled to examine such list or the books of the Corporation or to vote in person or by proxy at such meeting.

Section 6. Quorum; Adjournment of Meetings. Except as otherwise provided in the Certificate of Incorporation or these Bylaws, the presence in person or by proxy of stockholders entitled to cast a majority in number of votes shall be necessary to constitute a quorum for the transaction of business at all meetings of the stockholders. The stockholders present at a duly called or held meeting at which a quorum is present may continue to do business until adjournment notwithstanding the withdrawal of enough stockholders to leave less than a quorum. If less than a quorum shall be present or represented at the time for which the meeting shall have been called, the stockholders so present in person or by proxy at such meeting may, by a majority vote of the stockholders present or represented, adjourn the meeting from time to time without any notice or call other than by an announcement at the meeting of the time and place of the adjourned meeting, until a quorum shall attend. Any meeting or adjournment thereof at which a quorum is present may also be adjourned in like manner without notice or call or upon such notice or call as may be determined by vote. If, however, the adjournment is for more than 30 days, or if after the adjournment the Board of Directors fixes a new record date for the adjourned meeting, a notice of the adjourned meeting shall be given to each stockholder of record entitled to vote at such meeting. At any adjourned meeting at which a quorum shall be present, any business may be transacted which might have been transacted if the meeting had been held as originally called.

Section 7. Voting. Except as otherwise provided in the Certificate of Incorporation, at every meeting of stockholders, each holder of record of the issued and outstanding stock of the Corporation entitled to vote at such meeting shall be entitled to one vote in person or by proxy for each such share of stock entitled to vote held by such stockholder, but no proxy shall be voted after one year from its date unless the proxy provides for a longer period. A duly executed proxy shall be irrevocable if it states that it is irrevocable and if, and only as long as, it is coupled with an interest sufficient in law to support an irrevocable power. A proxy may remain irrevocable regardless of whether the interest with which it is coupled is an interest in the stock itself or an interest in the Corporation generally. Shares of its own capital stock belonging to the Corporation directly or indirectly shall not be voted directly or indirectly; providedhowever, that the foregoing shall not limit the right of the Corporation to vote any shares of the Corporation’s stock held by it in a fiduciary capacity (and to count such shares for purposes of determining a quorum). Except as otherwise required by the laws of the State of Delaware or the Certificate of Incorporation, and except for the election of directors, at all meetings of the stockholders, a quorum being present, all matters shall be decided by majority vote of the shares of stock entitled to vote held by stockholders present in person or by proxy. Directors shall be elected by plurality of the votes of the shares present in person or represented by proxy at the meeting entitled to vote on the election of directors. Unless demanded by a stockholder of the Corporation present in person or by proxy at any meeting of the stockholders and entitled to vote thereat before the meeting begins, or so directed by the Chairman of the meeting or required by the laws of the State of Delaware, the election of directors of the Corporation or the vote on any other question presented to the meeting need not be by ballot. On any vote by ballot, each ballot shall be signed by the stockholder voting, or in his or her name by his or her proxy, if there be such proxy, and shall state the number of shares voted by him or her and the number of votes to which each share is entitled.

Section 8. Organization of Meeting. The Chairman of the Board, if any, shall preside at all meetings of stockholders, or in his or her absence, the Vice Chairman of the Board, if any, shall preside, or in his or her absence, the President of the Corporation shall preside. If neither the Chairman of the Board, the Vice Chairman of the Board or the President is present at the meeting, the holders of a majority of the shares present at the meeting and entitled to vote, in person or by proxy, shall select a person to preside at the meeting. Subject to the requirements of any applicable law or the rules and regulations of any national securities exchange, national securities association or interdealer quotation system upon which the Corporation’s securities may be listed, the person presiding at a meeting of stockholders shall determine the order of business and the procedure at the meeting, including, without limitation, the regulation of the manner of voting and the conduct of any discussion, as he or she believes to be in order. The Secretary of the Corporation shall act as secretary of all meetings of stockholders, or in his or her absence, any Assistant Secretary of the Corporation who is present shall act as secretary of the meeting, or if no Assistant Secretary shall be present, the person presiding at such meeting shall appoint a secretary for that particular meeting.

Section 9. Action Without a Meeting. Whenever the vote of stockholders at a meeting thereof is required or permitted to be taken in connection with any corporate action, by any provisions of the laws of the State of Delaware or of the Certificate of Incorporation or these Bylaws, the meeting and vote of stockholders may be dispensed with if the holders of outstanding shares having not less than the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to authorize or take such corporate action at a meeting at which all shares entitled to vote thereon were present and voted shall consent in writing to such corporate action being taken. Prompt notice of the taking of the corporate action without a meeting by less than unanimous consent shall be given to those stockholders who have not consented in writing. In the event that the action which is consented to is such as would have required the filing of a certificate

with any governmental body, if such action had been voted on by stockholders at a meeting thereof, the certificate filed shall state, in lieu of any statement required by law concerning any vote of stockholders, that consent had been given in accordance with the provisions of Section 228 of the DGCL, and that notice has been given as provided in such section. Without limiting the manner by which consent or notice may be given, written consent and written notice shall be deemed to be given if sent by electronic transmission when directed to a facsimile number or electronic mail address at which the recipient has consented to receive such electronic transmissions.

Section 10. Ratification of Acts of Directors And Officers. Except as otherwise provided by law or by the Certificate of Incorporation, any transaction or contract or act of the Corporation or of the directors or the officers of the Corporation may be ratified by the affirmative vote of the holders of the number of shares which would have been necessary to approve such transaction, contract or act at a meeting of stockholders, or by the written consent of stockholders in lieu of a meeting.

ARTICLE III

Board of Directors

Section 1. General Powers. The property, business and affairs of the Corporation shall be managed by the Board of Directors, which may exercise all such powers of the Corporation and do all such lawful acts and things as are not by law or by the Certificate of Incorporation or by these Bylaws directed or required to be exercised or done by the stockholders.

Section 2. Number of Directors; Term of Office. The Board of Directors shall consist of four (4) members but may be increased or decreased as hereinafter provided. Each director shall hold office until the annual meeting of the stockholders next following his or her election and until his or her successor shall have been elected and shall qualify, or until his or her death, resignation or removal from office. At any time or from time to time at a special meeting called for that purpose, the Board of Directors, by the vote of a majority of the entire Board, may increase the number of directors of the Corporation, or may decrease the number of directors of the Corporation; providedhowever, that in no event shall the number of directors of the Corporation be less than one. Except as otherwise provided in these Bylaws, directors shall be elected at the annual meeting of stockholders. Directors need not be stockholders or residents of the State of Delaware. Elections of directors need not be by written ballot.

Section 3. Quorum; Manner of Acting; Telephonic Participation. Unless otherwise provided by law, the presence of a majority of the entire Board of Directors shall be necessary to constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. In the absence of a quorum, the directors present shall adjourn the meeting from time to time until a quorum shall be present. Notice of any adjourned meeting need not be given other than by announcement at the meeting. At all meetings of the directors, a quorum being present, all matters shall be decided by the affirmative vote of a majority of the directors present, except as otherwise required by the laws of the State of Delaware or the Certificate of Incorporation. All or any one or more directors may participate in a meeting of the Board of Directors or of any committee thereof by means of 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 such communications equipment shall constitute presence in person at such meeting. The minutes of any meeting of the Board of Directors or of any committee thereof held by telephone shall be prepared in the same manner as a meeting of the Board of Directors or of such committee held in person.

Section 4. Place of Meetings. The Board of Directors may hold its meetings at such place or places, within or without the State of Delaware, as the Board may from time to time determine.

Section 5. Annual Meeting. As promptly as practicable after each annual meeting of the stockholders for the election of directors, the Board of Directors shall meet for the purpose of the appointment of officers and the transaction of such other business as may properly come before the meeting. Notice of such meeting need not be given if held immediately after the annual meeting of stockholders. Such meeting may be held at any other time or place as shall be specified in a notice given as provided in Section 7 of this Article III or in a waiver of notice thereof signed by all of the directors.

Section 6. Regular Meetings. Regular meetings of the Board of Directors may be held at such time and place, within or without the State of Delaware, as shall from time to time be determined by the Board of Directors. After there has been such determination, and notice thereof has been given to each member of the Board of Directors, regular meetings may be held without further notice being given.

Section 7. Special Meetings and Notice Thereof. Special meetings of the Board of Directors shall be held whenever called by the Chairman of the Board, if any, the Vice Chairman of the Board, if any, the President or by a majority of the directors. Notice of the time, date and place of each such meeting shall be mailed to each director, addressed to him or her at his or her residence or usual place of business, at least four days before the date on which the meeting is to be held, or shall be given to him or her by telegram, telex, mailgram, facsimile transmission, electronic mail or other means of electronic transmission, or be delivered personally or by telephone, not later than two days before the day on which such meeting is to be held. Such notice shall state the time and place of the meeting, but need not state the purposes thereof. In lieu of the notice to be given as set forth above, a waiver thereof in writing, signed by the director or directors entitled to said notice, whether before or after the time stated therein, shall be deemed equivalent thereto for purposes of this Section 7. If mailed, such notice shall be deemed to be delivered when deposited in the United States mail so addressed, with first-class postage thereon prepaid. If sent by any other means (including facsimile, courier, electronic mail or express mail, etc.), such notice shall be deemed to be delivered when actually delivered to the home or business address, electronic address or facsimile number of the director. Attendance of a person at a meeting shall constitute a waiver of notice of such meeting, except when the person attends a meeting for the express purpose of objecting, and objects at the beginning of the meeting, to the transaction of any business because the meeting is not lawfully called or convened. The person or persons authorized to call special meetings of the Board of Directors may fix any place, either within or without the State of Delaware, as the place for holding any special meeting of the Board of Directors called by them.

Section 8. Removal. Subject as hereinafter provided, the entire Board of Directors or any individual director may be removed from office without assigning any cause by a majority vote of the holders of the outstanding stock entitled to vote at an election of directors.

Section 9. Resignation.

If there are no directors in office, then an election of directors may be held in the manner provided by law. Each director so elected shall hold office until the next annual meeting of stockholders and until his or her successor shall be elected and shall be qualified.

Section 11. Waiver of Notice and Consent. The transactions of any meeting of the Board, however called and noticed or wherever held, shall be as valid as though such meeting had been duly held after a regular call and notice, if a quorum be present and if, before or after the meeting, each of the directors not present signs or electronically transmits a written waiver of notice or a consent to the holding of such meeting or an approval of the minutes thereof whether before or after the date stated therein. Neither the business to be transacted at, nor the purpose of, any regular or special meeting of directors or members of a committee of directors need be specified in any written waiver of notice. All such waivers, consents or approvals shall be filed with the corporate records or made a part of the minutes of the meeting.

Section 12. Committees. The Board of Directors may, by resolution of the Board, designate one or more committees, each committee to consist of one or more directors of the Corporation, which, to the extent provided in the resolution or in these Bylaws, shall have and may exercise such powers of the Board in the management of the business and affairs of the Corporation (including the power to authorize the seal of the Corporation to be affixed to all papers which may require it), as the Board may by resolution determine and specify in the respective resolutions appointing them, subject to such restrictions as may be contained in the Certificate of Incorporation or the laws of the State of Delaware. Such committee or committees shall have such name or names as may be determined from time to time by resolutions adopted by the Board of Directors. The committees shall keep regular minutes of their proceedings and report the same to the Board when required. A majority of all the members of any such committee may fix its rules of procedure, determine its action and fix the time and place, whether within or without the State of Delaware, of its meetings and specify what notice thereof, if any, shall be given, unless the Board of Directors shall otherwise by resolution provide. The Board of Directors shall have the power to change the membership of any such committee at any time, to fill vacancies thereon and to discharge any such committee, either with or without cause, at any time. Each member of any such committee shall be paid such fee, if any, as shall be fixed by the Board of Directors for each meeting of such committee which he or she shall attend and for his or her expenses, if any, of attendance at each regular or special meeting of such committee as shall be determined by the Board of Directors.

Any action required or permitted to be taken at any meeting of the Board of Directors or of any committee thereof may be taken without a meeting if prior or subsequent to such action a written consent thereof is signed by all members of the Board or of such committee, as the case may be, or if such consent is expressed via electronic transmission in a manner prescribed by law. Without limiting the manner by which consent may be given, members of the Board of Directors may consent by delivery of an electronic transmission when such transmission is directed to a facsimile number or electronic mail address at which the Corporation has consented to receive such electronic transmissions. Any such written consent or electronic transmission shall be filed with the minutes or proceedings of the Board or committee.

Section 15. Fees and Compensation. Unless otherwise restricted by the Certificate of Incorporation or these Bylaws, the Board of Directors may, if it so desires, authorize members of the Board to be compensated for their expenses, if any, of attendance at each regular or special meeting of the Board. Such compensation may, in the Board’s discretion, also include a fixed sum for each meeting and an annual fee for serving as a director, such as may be allowed by resolution of the Board. Directors who are officers or employees of the Corporation may receive, if the Board desires, fees for serving as directors.

The Board of Directors, in its discretion, may authorize the issuance of such new certificate without any bond when in its judgment it is proper to do so.

Section 8. Record Date. The Board may fix a date (which shall not precede the date upon which the resolution fixing the record date is adopted) in advance of, not exceeding 60 days preceding, the date of any meeting of stockholders (and in such case not less than 10 days before the date of such meeting), or the date for the payment of any dividend or distribution, or the date for the allotment of rights, or the date when any exercise of any rights, change or conversion or exchange of capital stock shall go into effect, or a date in connection with obtaining any written consent to corporate action without a meeting (and in such case not more than 10 days after the date on which the resolution fixing the record date is adopted by the Board of Directors), as a record date for the determination of the stockholders entitled to notice of, and to vote at, such meeting, and any adjournment thereof, or to receive payment of any dividend or distribution, or to receive any such allotment of rights, or to exercise the rights in respect of any such change, conversion or exchange of capital stock or to give such written consent, as the case may be, notwithstanding any transfer of any stock on the books of the Corporation after any record date so fixed. If no record date is set by the Board of Directors then the record date shall, unless otherwise required by law, be determined as follows:

(a) 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;

(b) 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

(c) the record date for determining stockholders for any dividend or other distribution or allotment of any rights or the stockholders entitled to exercise any rights in respect to any change, conversion or exchange of stock, or any other purpose, shall be at the close of business on the day on which the Board of Directors adopts the resolution relating thereto.

Section 9. Issue of New Shares or Sale of Treasury Stock. Shares of the capital stock of the Corporation which have been authorized but not issued, and treasury shares, may be issued or sold from time to time and for such consideration, not less than the par value thereof, as may be determined by the Board of Directors.

Section 10. Beneficial Owners. The Corporation shall be entitled to recognize the exclusive right of a person registered on its books as the owner of shares to receive dividends, and to vote as such owner, and to hold liable for calls and assessments a person registered on its books as the owner of shares, and shall not be bound to recognize any equitable or other claim to or interest in such share or shares on the part of any other person, whether or not it shall have express or other notice thereof, except as otherwise provided by law. The Corporation shall not be required to register any transfer of shares made in violation of any agreement among a stockholder or investor in the Corporation and the Corporation, or recognize as a holder of any such shares any transferee in such a violative transaction.

The Board of Directors may abolish any such reserve at any time.
