SECTION 2. Annual Meetings. The annual meeting of stockholders for the election of Directors and the transaction of such other business as may properly be brought before the meeting shall be held on the third Wednesday in April in each year or such other date as shall be designated by the Board of Directors. If this date shall fall upon a legal holiday, the meeting shall be held on the next succeeding business day which is not a legal holiday.

SECTION 3. Business Transacted-Annual Meetings. At any annual meeting of the stockholders of the Corporation, only such business shall be conducted as shall have been brought before the meeting (a) by or at the direction of the Board of Directors or (b) by any stockholder of the Corporation who complies with the procedures set forth in this Section 3. For business properly to be brought before an annual meeting by a stockholder, the stockholder must have given timely notice thereof in proper written form 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 offices of the Corporation not less than 90 days nor more than 120 days prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year’s annual meeting; provided, however, that in the event that the date of the annual meeting is more than 30 days before or more than 60 days after such anniversary date, 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 public announcement of the date of the annual meeting is first made. To be in proper written form, a stockholder’s notice to the Secretary shall set forth in writing as to each matter the stockholder proposes to bring before the annual meeting (a) a brief description of the business desired to be brought before the annual meeting and the reasons for conducting such business at the annual meeting, (b) the name and address, as they appear on the Corporation’s books, of the stockholder proposing such business, (c) the class and number of shares of the Corporation which are beneficially owned by the stockholder and (d) any material interest of the stockholder in such business. Notwithstanding anything in the By-Laws to the contrary, no business shall be conducted at an annual meeting except in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 3. The chairman of an annual


meeting shall, if the facts warrant, determine and declare to the meeting that business was not properly brought before the meeting in accordance with the provisions of this Section 3, and, if he should so determine, he shall so declare to the meeting and any such business not properly brought before the meeting shall not be transacted.

SECTION 4. Special Meetings. Except as otherwise provided by law, special meetings of the stockholders may be called at any time by the Chairman of the Board, the President, or a majority of the Board of Directors.

SECTION 5. Business Transacted-Special Meetings. Business transacted at any special meeting shall be confined to the purpose or purposes stated in the notice thereof.

SECTION 6. Notice of Meetings. Written notice of the annual meeting or of a special meeting, stating the time, place, and purpose or purposes of the meeting, shall be given not less than ten (10) nor more than sixty (60) days before the date of the meeting, either personally or by mail, to each stockholder of record entitled to vote at such meeting.

SECTION 7. Quorum and Adjournment. The holders of a majority of the stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote thereat, represented in person or by proxy, shall constitute a quorum at all meetings of the stockholders for the transaction of business except as otherwise provided by statute or by the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation. If, however, such quorum shall not be present or represented at any meeting of the stockholders, the stockholders present in person or represented by proxy shall have 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. The person presiding at any meeting of stockholders may adjourn the meeting to another time and/or place from time to time, if such person reasonably believes that adjournment is in the best interest of the corporation and its stockholders, with respect to any or all business to be conducted and/or any or all proposals to be considered at such meeting, whether or not there is a quorum. 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 notified.

SECTION 8. Voting. Whenever any action, other than the election of directors, is to be taken by vote of the stockholders, it shall be authorized by a majority of the votes cast at a meeting of stockholders at which a quorum is present by the holders of shares entitled to vote thereon, unless a greater plurality is required by law or by the Restated Certificate of Incorporation.

SECTION 9. Proxies. Any stockholder of record entitled to vote may be represented at any annual or special meeting of the stockholders by a duly appointed proxy. A proxy may be given in any manner, and may take any form, allowed by applicable law provided that it is filed with, or communicated to, the Secretary of the meeting before being voted.

SECTION 10. Consents to Corporate Action. (a) Action by Written Consent. Unless otherwise provided in the Certificate of Incorporation, any action required or permitted to be taken at any annual or special meeting of stockholders of the Corporation, subject to the provisions of subsections (b) and (c) of this Section 10, may be taken without a meeting upon the written consent (which shall set forth the action to be so taken) of less than all the stockholders entitled to cast at least the minimum number of votes which would be required to take such action at a meeting at which all stockholders entitled to vote thereon are present; provided, however, that prompt notice of the taking of corporate action without a meeting and by less than unanimous written consent shall be given to those stockholders who have not consented in writing.

(b) Determination of Record Date for Action by Written Consent. The record date for determining stockholders entitled to express consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting shall be fixed by the Board of Directors of the Company. Any stockholder seeking to have the stockholders of the Corporation authorize or take corporate action by written consent without a meeting shall, by written notice to the Secretary of the Corporation, request the Board of Directors to fix a record date. Upon receipt of such a request, the Secretary shall, as promptly as practicable, call a special meeting of the Board of Directors to


be held as promptly as practicable. At such meeting, the Board of Directors shall fix a record date within the limitations provided in Section 14A:5-7 (or its successor provision) of the New Jersey Business Corporation Act. Notice of the record date shall be published in accordance with the rules and policies of any stock exchange on which securities of the Company are then listed. Should the Board of Directors fail to fix a record date as provided for in this paragraph (b), then the record date shall be the close of business on the day next preceding the day on which notice of the meeting is given or, if no notice is given, the day next preceding the day on which the meeting is held.

(c) Procedures for Written Consent. In the event of the delivery to the Company of a written consent or consents purporting to represent the requisite voting power to authorize or take corporate action and/or related revocations, the Secretary of the Corporation shall provide for the safe-keeping of such consents and revocations and shall engage nationally recognized independent inspectors of elections for the purpose of promptly performing a ministerial review of the validity of the consents and revocations. No action by written consent without a meeting shall be effective until such inspectors have completed their review, have determined that the requisite number of valid and unrevoked consents has been obtained to authorize the action specified in the consents, and have certified such determination for entry into the records of the Corporation kept for the purpose of recording the proceedings of meetings of stockholders.

ARTICLE IV

DIRECTORS

SECTION 1. Number and Term of Directors. The Board of Directors shall consist of no fewer than three and no more than 14 Directors. The exact number of Directors within the minimum and maximum limitations specified in the preceding sentence shall be fixed from time to time by the Board of Directors pursuant to a resolution adopted by a majority of the whole Board of Directors.

No decrease in the number of Directors constituting the Board of Directors shall shorten the term of any incumbent Director. Commencing at the annual meeting of stockholders that is held in calendar year 2013 (the “2013 Annual Meeting”), Directors shall be elected annually for terms of one year, except that any Director in office at the 2013 Annual Meeting whose term does not expire until the annual meeting of stockholders held in calendar year 2014 or calendar year 2015 (a “Continuing Classified Director”) shall continue to hold office until the end of the term for which such Continuing Classified Director was previously elected and until such Continuing Classified Director’s successor shall have been elected and qualified. Except as otherwise required by law, until the term of a Continuing Classified Director or any other Director expires or otherwise terminates as aforesaid, such Directors may be removed from office by the stockholders of the Corporation or the Board of Directors only for cause pursuant to the applicable provisions of the New Jersey Business Corporation Act. Directors need not be residents of the State of New Jersey nor stockholders of the Corporation.

SECTION 2. Vacancies. Any vacancy occurring in the Board of Directors, including any vacancy resulting from an increase in the number of Directors, may be filled until the next succeeding Annual Meeting of Stockholders by the affirmative vote of a majority of the remaining Directors through less than a quorum of the Board of Directors.

SECTION 3. Notice of Stockholder Nominees. Only persons who are nominated in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 3 shall be eligible for election as Directors of the Corporation. Nominations of persons for election to the Board of Directors of the Corporation may be made at an annual meeting of stockholders (a) by or at the direction of the Board of Directors or (b) by any stockholder of the Corporation entitled to vote for the election of Directors at such annual meeting who complies with the procedures set forth in this Section 3. All nominations by stockholders shall be made pursuant to timely notice in proper written form to the Secretary of the Corporation. To be timely, a stockholder’s notice shall be delivered to or mailed and received at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not less than 90 days nor more than 120 days prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year’s annual meeting; provided, however, that in the event that the date of the annual meeting is more than 30 days before or more than 60 days after such anniversary date, 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 public announcement of the date of the annual meeting is first made. To be in proper written form, such stockholder’s notice shall set forth in writing (a) as to each person whom the stockholder proposes to nominate for election or re-election as a Director, (i) all information relating to such person that is required to be disclosed in solicitations of proxies for election of directors, or is otherwise required, in each case pursuant to Regulation 14A under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including, without limitation, such person’s written consent to being named in the proxy statement as a nominee and to serving as a Director if elected and (ii) a completed and signed questionnaire, representation and agreement required by Section 4 of this Article IV; and (b) as to the stockholder giving the notice (i) the name and address, as they appear on the Corporation’s books, of such stockholder and (ii) the class and number of shares of the Corporation which are beneficially owned by such stockholder. At the request of the Board of Directors, any person nominated by the Board of Directors for election as a Director shall furnish to the Secretary of the Corporation that information required to be set forth in a stockholder’s notice of nomination which pertains to the nominee. In the event that a stockholder seeks to nominate one or more Directors, the Secretary shall appoint two inspectors, who shall not be affiliated with the Corporation, to determine whether a stockholder has complied with this Section 3. If the inspectors shall determine that a stockholder has not complied with this Section 3, the inspectors shall direct the chairman of the meeting to declare to the meeting that a nomination was not made in accordance with the procedures prescribed by the By-Laws of the Corporation, and the chairman shall so declare to the meeting and the defective nomination shall be disregarded.

SECTION 4. Submission of Questionnaire; Representation and Agreement. To be eligible to be a nominee for election or reelection as a Director of the Corporation, a person must deliver (in accordance with the time periods prescribed for delivery of notice under Section 3 of this Article IV) to the Secretary of the Corporation a written questionnaire with respect to the background and qualification of such person and the background of any other person or entity on whose behalf the nomination is being made (which questionnaire shall be provided by the Secretary upon written request) and a written representation and agreement (in the form provided by the Secretary upon written request) that such person (i) is not and will not become a party to any agreement, arrangement or understanding with, and has not given any commitment or assurance to, any person or entity as to how such person, if elected as a director of the Corporation, will act or vote on any issue or question that has not been disclosed to the Corporation, (ii) is not and will not become a party to any agreement, arrangement or understanding with any person or entity other than the Corporation with respect to any direct or indirect compensation, reimbursement or indemnification in connection with service or action as a director that has not been disclosed therein, and (iii) in such person’s individual capacity and on behalf of any person or entity on whose behalf the nomination is being made, would be in compliance, if elected as a Director of the Corporation, and will comply with, applicable law and all applicable publicly disclosed corporate governance, conflict of interest, corporate opportunities, confidentiality and stock ownership and trading policies and guidelines of the Corporation.

SECTION 5. Duties and Powers. The Board of Directors shall have the control and management of the affairs of the Corporation and shall exercise all such powers of the Corporation and do all such lawful acts and things necessary or expedient in the control and management thereof as are not by statute or by the Certificate of Incorporation or by these By-Laws directed or required to be exercised or done by the stockholders.

Nothing herein contained shall be construed to preclude any Director from serving the Corporation in any other capacity and receiving compensation therefor.

SECTION 8. Executive Committee. The Board of Directors shall appoint an Executive Committee from the Directors, consisting of not less than three (3) members, which Committee shall have and exercise all of the authority of the Board of Directors in the management of the Corporation, except to the extent that the exercise of such authority would violate any applicable law or regulation or applicable rule or listing standard of any stock exchange. Vacancies in the membership of the Committee shall be filled by the Board of Directors at a regular or special meeting of the Board of Directors. The Executive Committee shall keep regular Minutes of its proceedings and report the same to the Board when required.
