ARTICLE I - STOCKHOLDERS

Section 1.    Annual Meeting

An annual meeting of the stockholders, for the election of directors to succeed those whose terms expire and for the transaction of such other business as may properly come before the meeting, shall be held each year at such place on such date, and at such time as the Board of Directors shall each year fix.

Section 2.    Special Meetings

Special meetings of the stockholders, for any purpose or purposes prescribed in the notice of the meeting, may be called by the Board of Directors or the chief executive officer and shall be held at such place, on such date, and at such time as they or he shall fix.

Section 3.    Notice of Meetings; Stockholder Business and Director Nominations

Written notice of the place, date, and time of all meetings of the stockholders shall be given, not less than ten nor more than sixty days before the date on which the meeting is to be held, to each stockholder entitled to vote at such meeting, except as otherwise provided herein or required by law (meaning, here and hereinafter, as required from time to time by the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware or the Certificate of Incorporation).

When a meeting is adjourned to another place, date or time, written notice need not be given of the adjourned meeting if the place, date, and time thereof are announced at the meeting at which the adjournment is taken; provided, however, that if the adjournment is until a date that is more than 120 days after the date for which the meeting was originally noticed, or if a new record date is fixed for the adjourned meeting, written notice of the place, date and time of the adjourned meeting shall be given in conformity herewith. At any adjourned meeting, any business may be transacted which might have been transacted at the original meeting.

At any meeting of stockholders, only such business shall be conducted as shall have been brought before the meeting (a) by or at the direction of the Board, (b) in accordance with Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or (c) with respect to an annual meeting, by a stockholder of record entitled to vote at such meeting who complies with the notice procedures set forth in this paragraph. For proposed business to be properly brought before a meeting by a stockholder, the

1


stockholder shall have given timely notice thereof in writing to the Secretary of the Corporation and any such proposed business must constitute a proper matter for stockholder action. To be timely, a stockholder's notice with respect to an annual meeting shall be delivered to the Secretary at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not later than the close of business on the 90th day nor earlier than the close of business on the 120th day 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 70 days after such anniversary date, notice by the stockholder must be so delivered not earlier than the close of business on the 120th day prior to such annual meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of the 90th day prior to such annual meeting or the 10th day following the day on which public announcement of the date of such meeting is first made by the corporation). In no event shall the public announcement of an adjournment or postponement of an annual meeting commence a new time period (or extend any time period) for the giving of a stockholder's notice as described above. Such stockholder's notice to the Secretary of the Corporation shall set forth as to each matter the stockholder proposes to bring before the meeting (a) a brief description of the business desired to be brought before the meeting, and in the event that such business includes a proposal to amend either the Certificate of Incorporation or the Bylaws of the Corporation, the language of the proposed amendment, (b) the name and address of the stockholder proposing such business, (c) the class and number of shares of stock of the Corporation which are owned by such stockholder and (d) any material personal interest of such stockholder in such business. If notice has not been given pursuant to this paragraph, the chairman of the meeting shall, if the facts warrant, determine and declare to the meeting that the proposed business was not properly brought before the meeting, and such business may not be transacted at the meeting. The foregoing provisions of this paragraph do not relieve any stockholder of any obligation to comply with all applicable requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and rules and regulations promulgated thereunder.

At any meeting of stockholders, a person may be a candidate for election to the Board only if such person is nominated (a) by or at the direction of the Board, (b) by any nominating committee or person appointed by the Board or (c) by a stockholder of record entitled to vote at such meeting who complies with the notice procedures set forth in this paragraph. To properly nominate a candidate to be a director, a stockholder shall give timely notice of such nomination in writing to the Secretary of the Corporation. To be timely, a stockholder's notice with respect to any annual meeting shall be delivered to the Secretary at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not later than the close of business on the 90th day nor earlier than the close of business on the 120th day 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 70 days after such anniversary date, notice by the stockholder must be so delivered not earlier than the close of business on the 120th day prior to such annual meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of the 90th day prior to such annual meeting or the 10th day following the day on which public

2


announcement of the date of such meeting is first made by the Corporation). In the event the corporation calls a special meeting of the stockholders for the purpose of electing one or more directors to the Board, any stockholder entitled to vote in such election of directors may nominate a person or persons (as the case may be) for election to such position(s) as specified in the Corporation's notice of meeting, if the stockholder's notice shall be delivered to the Secretary at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not earlier than the close of business on the 120th day prior to such special meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of the 90th day prior to such special meeting or the 10th day following the day on which public announcement is first made of the date of the special meeting and of the nominees proposed by the Board to be elected at such meeting. In no event shall the public announcement of an adjournment or postponement of a meeting commence a new time period (or extend any time period) for the giving of a stockholder's notice as described above. Any stockholder's notice to the Secretary of the Corporation with respect to the nomination of a candidate to be a director shall set forth (a) as to each person whom the stockholder proposed to nominate (i) the name, age, business address and residence address of the person, (ii) the principal occupation or employment of the person, (iii) the class and number of shares of stock of the Corporation which are owned by the person and (iv) any other information relating to the person that would be required to be disclosed in a solicitation of proxies for election of directors pursuant to Rule 14a under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934; and (b) as to the stockholder giving the notice (i) the name and address of such stockholder and (ii) the class and number of shares of stock of the Corporation owned by such stockholder. The Corporation may require such other information to be furnished respecting any proposed nominee as may be reasonably necessary to determine the eligibility of such proposed nominee to serve as a director of the Corporation. No person shall be eligible for election by the stockholders as a director at any meeting unless nominated in accordance with this paragraph.

Notwithstanding anything in this Section 3 to the contrary, in the event that the number of directors to be elected to the Board of the corporation at the annual meeting is increased and there is no public announcement by the corporation naming the nominees for the additional directorships at least 100 days prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year's annual meeting, a stockholder's notice required by this Section 3 shall also be considered timely, but only with respect to nominees for the additional directorships, if it shall be delivered to the Secretary of the corporation at the principal executive offices of the corporation not later than the close of business on the 10th day following the day on which such public announcement is first made by the corporation.

Except as otherwise provided by law, the Chair of the Board, as chair of the meeting, shall have the power and duty (A) to determine whether a nomination or any business proposed to be brought before the meeting was made or proposed, as the case may be, in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 3 and (B) if any proposed nomination or business was not made or proposed in compliance with this

3


Section 3, to declare that such nomination shall be disregarded or that such proposed business shall not be transacted.

For purposes of this Section 3, "public announcement" shall include 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.

If a quorum shall fail to attend any meeting, the chairman of the meeting or the holders of a majority of the shares of the stock entitled to vote who are present, in person or by proxy, may adjourn the meeting to another place, date, or time.

If a notice of any adjourned special meeting of stockholders is sent to all stockholders entitled to vote thereat, stating that it will be held with those present constituting a quorum, then except as otherwise required by law, those present at such adjourned meeting shall constitute a quorum, and all matters shall be determined by a majority of the votes cast at such meeting.
