OF

ALLIANCE ONE INTERNATIONAL, INC.

(as last amended on June 13, 2013)

ARTICLE I

Capital Shares

Section 1. Certificates. Shares of Alliance One International, Inc. (the “Corporation”) may be certificated or uncertificated. Certificated shares shall be in forms prescribed by the Board of Directors and executed in any manner permitted by law and stating thereon the information required by law. Transfer agents and/or registrars for one or more classes of the stock of the Corporation may be appointed by the Board of Directors and may be required to countersign certificates representing stock of such class or classes. In the event that any officer whose signature or facsimile thereof shall have been used on a stock certificate shall for any reason cease to be an officer of the Corporation, such certificate may nevertheless be issued and delivered as though such person had not ceased to be an officer of the Corporation. Transfer books in which shares shall be transferred shall be kept by the Corporation or by one or more transfer agents appointed by it. A record shall be kept of each share that is issued. Within a reasonable time after the issuance or transfer of uncertificated shares of the Corporation, the Corporation shall send, or cause to be sent, to the holder a written statement that shall include the information required by law to be set forth on certificates for shares of capital stock.

Section 2. Transfer of Shares. Certificated shares of the Corporation shall be transferable or assignable only on the books of the Corporation by the holders in person or by his or her attorney on surrender of the certificate for such shares duly endorsed and, if sought to be transferred by attorney, accompanied by a written power of attorney to have the same transferred on the books of the Corporation. Uncertificated shares shall be transferable or assignable only on the books of the Corporation upon proper instruction from the holder of such shares (in accordance with procedures adopted from time to time by the President or the Secretary). The Corporation shall recognize the exclusive right of the person registered on its books as the owner of shares to receive dividends and to vote as such owner.

Section 3. Lost Destroyed and Mutilated Certificates. After receiving notice from a shareholder of any loss, destruction or mutilation of a share certificate, the Secretary or his nominee may in his discretion cause one or more new certificates or uncertificated shares for the same number of shares in the aggregate to be issued to such shareholder upon the surrender of the mutilated certificate or upon satisfactory proof of such loss or destruction and the deposit of a bond in such form and amount and with such surety as the Secretary or his nominee may require.

Section 4. Record Date. For the purpose of determining shareholders entitled to notice of or to vote at any meeting of shareholders or any adjournment thereof or entitled to receive payment of any dividend, or in order to make a determination of shareholders for any other proper purpose, the Board of Directors may fix in advance a date as the record date for any such determination of shareholders, such date in any case to be not more than seventy (70) days prior to the date on which the particular action requiring such determination of shareholders is to be taken. If no record date is fixed for the determination of shareholders entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of shareholders or shareholders entitled to receive


payment of a dividend, the date on which notices of the meeting are first mailed or the date on which the resolution of the Board of Directors declaring such dividend is adopted, as the case may be, shall be the record date for such determination of shareholders. When a determination of shareholders entitled to vote at any meeting of shareholders has been made as provided in this Article I (Section 4) such determination shall apply to any postponement or adjournment thereof unless the Board of Directors fixes a new record date, which it shall do if the meeting is postponed or adjourned to a date more then 120 days after the date fixed for the original meeting.

ARTICLE II

Shareholders

Section 1. Annual Meeting. Subject to the Board of Directors’ ability to postpone a meeting under Virginia law, the annual meeting shall be held on such date and at such time and place as may be fixed by the Board of Directors and stated in the notice of the meeting. The annual meeting shall be held for the purpose of electing directors and for the transaction of only such other business as is properly brought before the meeting in accordance with these bylaws. To be properly brought before an annual meeting of shareholders, business must be (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 the meeting by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, or (iii) in the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, properly brought before the meeting by a shareholder. In addition to any other applicable requirements, for business to be properly brought before an annual meeting by a shareholder, the shareholder must have given timely notice thereof in writing to the Secretary of the Corporation. To be timely, a shareholder’s notice must be given, either by personal delivery or by United States mail, postage prepaid, to, and received by, the Secretary of the Corporation not later than one hundred twenty (120) days before the anniversary of the date of the Corporation’s annual meeting in the immediately preceding year. In no event shall the public announcement of an adjournment or postponement of an annual meeting or the fact that an annual meeting is held before or after the anniversary of the preceding annual meeting commence a new time period for the giving of a shareholder’s notice as described above. A shareholder’s notice to the Secretary shall set forth as to each matter the shareholder proposes to bring before the annual meeting (i) a brief description of the business desired to be brought before the annual meeting (including the specific proposal to be presented) and the reasons for conducting such business at the annual meeting, (ii) the name and record address of the shareholder proposing such business, (iii) the class and number of shares of the Corporation that are beneficially owned by the shareholder, (iv) a representation that the shareholder is a holder of record of shares of capital stock of the Corporation entitled to vote at such meeting and intends to appear in person or by proxy at such meeting to propose such business, (v) any material interest of the shareholder and any other person on whose behalf such proposal is made, in such business; (vi) a description (including the names of any counterparties) of any agreement, arrangement or understanding (including any derivative or short positions, profit interests, options, hedging transactions, and borrowed or loaned shares) that has been entered into as of the date of the shareholder’s notice by, or on behalf of, the shareholder or any other person on whose behalf the proposal is made, the effect or intent of which is to mitigate loss, manage risk or benefit resulting from share price changes of, or increase or decrease the voting power of the shareholder or any other person on whose behalf the proposal is made with respect to, shares of stock of the Corporation, (vii) a description (including the names of any counterparties) of any agreement, arrangement or understanding with respect to such business between or among the shareholder or any other person on whose behalf the proposal is made and any of its affiliates or associates, and any others acting in concert with any of the foregoing, and (viii) an agreement that the shareholder will notify the Corporation in writing of any changes to the information provided pursuant to clauses (iii), (vi) and (vii) above that are in effect as of the record date for the relevant meeting promptly following the later of the record date or the date notice of the record date is first publicly announced.

In the event that a shareholder attempts to bring business before an annual meeting without complying with the provisions of this Article II (Section 1) or fails to comply with the agreement referenced in clause (viii) of the immediately preceding sentence, such business shall not be transacted at such meeting. The Chairman of the Board of Directors or other officer of the Corporation acting as chairman of the meeting shall have the power and duty (i) to determine whether any proposal to bring business before the meeting was made in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Article II (Section 1) and (ii) if any business is determined not to be proposed in compliance with this Article II (Section 1), to declare that such defective proposal shall be disregarded and that such proposed business shall not be transacted at such meeting. For purposes of these Bylaws, “public announcement” or “publicly announced” shall mean disclosure in a press release reported by the Dow Jones News Service, Associated Press or comparable national news service or in a document publicly filed by the Corporation with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Section 13, 14 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

Section 2. Special Meetings. Special meetings of the shareholders may be held at any time and at any place designated in the notice thereof upon call of the Chairman of the Board of Directors, the Chief Executive Officer or a majority of the Board of Directors. At a special meeting no business shall be transacted and no corporate action shall be taken other than that stated in the notice of the meeting.

Section 3. Notice. Except as otherwise required by law, written or printed notice stating the date, time and place, and, in case of a special meeting, the purpose or purposes thereof, shall be given not less than ten (10) nor more than sixty (60) days before any such meeting to each shareholder of record entitled to vote at such meeting. Notice of meetings of the shareholders may be given by the delivery thereof to such shareholder personally or by the mailing thereof to such shareholder, in either such case at his or her address as it appears on the stock transfer books of the Corporation, or in any such other manner as may be permitted by the Virginia Stock Corporation Act, as in effect at the time (the “VSCA”) in compliance with the provisions thereof, including by “electronic transmission” (as defined in the VSCA). Notice given pursuant to this Article II (Section 3) shall be deemed given at the time specified in the VSCA for the particular form of notice used. Meetings may be held without notice if all of the shareholders entitled to vote at the meeting waive such notice, by attendance at the meeting or otherwise, in accordance with law.

Section 4. Quorum; Adjournments. A majority of the votes entitled to be cast by any voting group on any matter, represented in person or by proxy, shall constitute a quorum of such voting group with respect to action on such matter. The Chairman of the Board or any presiding officer acting as chairman of the meeting shall have power to adjourn or postpone any meeting of the shareholders from time to time (i) because of the absence of a quorum at any meeting or any adjournment thereof, or (ii) for any other reason, in any such case without notice other than announcement at the meeting before adjournment or postponement (except as otherwise provided by statute). At such adjourned or postponed meeting any business may be transacted that could have been transacted at the meeting as originally notified.

Section 5. Voting. Except as otherwise specified in the Articles of Incorporation or the VSCA, at all meetings of the shareholders, each holder of an outstanding share may vote in person or by proxy, and shall be entitled to one vote on each matter voted on at such meeting for each share registered in the name of such shareholder on the books of the Corporation on the record date for such meeting. Unless a greater vote is required pursuant to the Articles of Incorporation or the VSCA, if a quorum exists, action on a matter (other than the election of Directors) by a voting group is approved if the votes cast favoring the action exceed the votes cast opposing the action. Unless otherwise provided in the Articles of Incorporation, directors shall be elected by a plurality of votes cast by shares entitled to vote in the election at a meeting at which a quorum is present.

Section 6. Appointment of Proxy. Appointment of a proxy may be accomplished by the shareholder or such shareholder’s duly authorized attorney-in-fact or authorized officer, director, employee or agent signing an appointment form authorizing another person or persons to act for the shareholder as proxy or causing such shareholder’s signature to be affixed to such appointment form by any reasonable means, including, but not limited to, by facsimile signature. Any such appointment form shall bear a date not more than eleven (11) months prior to such meeting, unless such appointment form provides for a longer period. All appointment forms shall be effective when received by the Secretary or other officer or agent of the Corporation authorized to tabulate votes. The President and Chief Executive Officer or the Secretary may approve procedures to enable a shareholder or a shareholder’s duly authorized attorney-in-fact to authorize another person or persons to act for him or her as proxy by transmitting or authorizing the transmission of a telegram, cablegram, internet transmission, telephone transmission or other means of electronic transmission to the person who will be the holder of the proxy or to a proxy solicitation firm, proxy support service organization or like agent duly authorized by the person who will be the holder of the proxy to receive such transmission, provided that any such transmission must either set forth or be submitted with information from which the inspectors of election can determine that the transmission was authorized by the shareholder or the shareholder’s duly authorized attorney-in-fact. If it is determined that such transmissions are valid, the inspectors shall specify the information upon which they relied. Any copy, facsimile telecommunication or other reliable reproduction of the writing or transmission created pursuant to this Article II (Section 6) may be substituted or used in lieu of the original writing or transmission for any and all purposes for which the original writing or transmission could be used, provided that such copy, facsimile telecommunication or other reproduction shall be a complete reproduction of the entire original writing or transmission.

Such list, for a period of ten (10) days prior to such meeting, shall be kept on file at the registered office of the Corporation or at its principal place of business or at the office of its transfer agent or registrar and shall be subject to inspection by any shareholder at any time during usual business hours.

The presiding officer shall have the power to adjourn the meeting. In case none of the Chairman of the Board of Directors, the President or the member of Board of Directors appointed by the Board of Directors to serve as lead independent director or other Board-appointed presiding officer is present, the meeting shall elect a chairman. The Secretary or, in his absence or at his request, an Assistant Secretary shall act as secretary of such meetings.
