Section 3.2.  Annual Meetings; Advance Notice Requirements.

 

(a) Annual Meeting.  An annual meeting of the stockholders of the corporation shall be held on the date and at the time and place as shall be designated from time to time by the Board of Directors and stated in the notice of the meeting, for the purpose of electing directors of the corporation to serve during the ensuing year and

for the transaction of such other business as may properly come before the meeting.  If the election of the directors is not held on the day designated herein for any annual meeting of the stockholders, or at any adjournment thereof, the Chief Executive Officer shall cause the election to be held at a special meeting of the stockholders as soon thereafter as is convenient.

 

(b) Notice of Business to be Brought Before Annual Meeting. In addition to any other applicable requirements, for business to be properly brought before an annual meeting by a stockholder, the stockholder must have given timely notice thereof in writing 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 sixty (60) days nor more than ninety (90) days prior to the one-year anniversary of the preceding year’s annual meeting, provided, however, that in the event that the date of the annual meeting is more than thirty (30) days before or more than sixty (60) days after such anniversary date, notice by a stockholder, to be timely, must be received no later than the close of business on the ninetieth (90th) day prior to such annual meeting or, if later, the tenth (10th) day following the day on which such notice of the date of the annual meeting was mailed or such public disclosure was made, whichever first occurs (notice within such time periods, “Timely Notice”). A stockholder’s notice to the Secretary shall set forth (i) as to each matter the stockholder proposes to bring before the annual meeting (x) 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, and (y) any material interest of the stockholder in such business, and (ii) as to the stockholder giving the notice (x) the name and record address of the stockholder, (y) the class, series and number of shares of capital stock of the corporation which are owned beneficially or of record by the stockholder and (z) a description of any derivative positions held or beneficially held, any hedging or similar transactions, and any agreement, arrangement or understanding, the effect or intent of which is, directly or indirectly, to increase or decrease the voting power of such stockholder or his affiliates with respect to any securities of the corporation or to increase or decrease the opportunity to profit or share in any profit derived from any increase or decrease in the value of any securities of the corporation (the information required pursuant to this clause (ii) being hereinafter referred to as “Disclosable Information”).  Such stockholder shall further update and supplement such notice, if necessary, such that the information provided or required to be provided therein shall be true and correct as of the record date for the annual meeting and as of the date that is ten (10) days prior to the annual meeting, which updated or supplemented notice must be received no later than the close of business on the fifth (5th) day preceding each such date. Notwithstanding anything in these Bylaws to the contrary, no business proposed by a stockholder shall be conducted at the annual meeting except in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 3.2(b). The officer of the corporation presiding at an annual meeting shall, if the facts warrant, determine and declare to the annual meeting that such business was not properly brought before the annual meeting in accordance with the provisions of this Section 3.2(b), and if such officer should so determine, such officer shall so declare to the annual meeting and any such business not properly brought before the meeting shall not be transacted.

(c) Notice of Nominations for Election to the Board of Directors. In addition to any other applicable requirements, for a stockholder to make any nomination of a person or persons for election to the Board of Directors at an annual meeting, the stockholder must have given Timely Notice thereof in writing to the Secretary of the corporation and shall provide any updates or supplements thereto in accordance with the requirements of Section 3.2(b) of the Bylaws.  Such notice shall set forth the Disclosable Information for such stockholder and, for each person whom such stockholder proposes to nominate for election to the Board of Directors, (i) the Disclosable Information for such proposed nominee, (ii) all information relating to such proposed nominee that is required to be disclosed in a proxy statement or other filings required to be made in connection with solicitations of proxies for election of directors in a contested election pursuant to Section 14(a) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, including a written consent to be named in the proxy statement as a nominee and to serve as a director, if elected, (iii) a description of all direct and indirect compensation and other material agreements, arrangements and understandings during the three years preceding such notice, and any other material relationships between such stockholder and such proposed nominee, including any material relationships through their respective affiliates and associates, and (iv) a questionnaire signed and completed by the proposed nominee (a form of which shall be provided by the Secretary upon written request).  The corporation may require any such proposed nominee to provide such other information as may be reasonably required by the corporation to confirm his eligibility to serve as a nominee for election to the Board of Directors, or that could be material to a reasonable stockholder’s understanding of the independence or lack of independence of such proposed nominee.  Notwithstanding anything in these Bylaws to the contrary, no person shall be eligible for election as a director of the corporation at an annual meeting unless nominated in accordance with this Section 3.2(c), or by or at the direction of the Board of Directors or a committee thereof.  The officer of the corporation presiding at an annual meeting shall, if the facts warrant, determine and declare to the annual meeting that such nomination was not properly made in accordance with the provisions of this Section 3.2(c), and if such officer should so determine, such officer shall so declare to the annual meeting and any such defective nomination shall be disregarded.

 

Section 3.3.  Special Meetings.  Special meetings of the stockholders may be called by the Chief Executive Officer, President (if any), the Board of Directors, or by the Secretary at the written request (stating the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called) of the holders of not less than one-third (33 1/3%) of all the shares entitled to vote at the meeting.

 

Section 3.4.  Notice of Meetings; Waiver.  Written notice stating the place, day, and hour of the meeting, the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called, and the means of electronic communications, if any, by which stockholders and proxies shall be deemed to be present in person and vote shall be delivered not less than ten (10) nor more than sixty (60) days before the date of the meeting, either personally, by mail or (if electronic transmission has been consented to by the stockholder) by electronic

transmission in accordance with NRS §75.150, to each registered holder entitled to vote at such meeting.  If mailed, such notice shall be deemed to be delivered when deposited in the United States mail addressed to the registered holder at his address as it appears on the stock transfer books of the corporation, with postage on it prepaid.  If delivered by electronic transmission, such notice shall be deemed to be given when delivered pursuant to the requirements of NRS §75.150, as amended from time to time.  Waiver by a stockholder in writing of notice of a stockholders’ meeting shall constitute a waiver of notice of the meeting, whether executed and/or delivered before or after such meeting.

 

Section 3.5.  Quorum.  A majority of the stockholders entitled to vote, represented in person or by proxy, shall constitute a quorum at a meeting of the stockholders.  The stockholders present at a duly organized meeting may continue to do business until adjournment, notwithstanding the withdrawal of enough stockholders to leave less than a quorum.  Except as permitted by the Board of Directors, stockholders may not participate in meetings of stockholders through electronic communications, videoconferencing, teleconferencing or other available technology which allows the stockholders to communicate simultaneously or sequentially.

 

Section 3.6.  Voting.

 

(a) Directors shall be elected by the vote of the majority of the votes cast (meaning the number of shares voted “for” a nominee must exceed the number of shares voted “against” such nominee) with “abstentions” and “broker non-votes” not counted as a vote cast either “for” or “against” that nominee’s election at any meeting for the election of directors at which a quorum is present; provided, however, that in a Contested Election of Directors (as defined below) at such a meeting, directors shall be elected by a plurality of the votes cast on the election of directors (instead of by votes cast “for” or “against” a nominee). The term “Contested Election of Directors” shall mean an annual or special meeting of the corporation with respect to which (i) the Secretary of the corporation receives a notice that a stockholder has nominated or intends to nominate a person for election to the Board of Directors in compliance with the requirements for stockholder nominees for director set forth in Sections 3.2(b) and 3.2(c) of these Bylaws and (ii) such nomination has not been withdrawn by such stockholder on or prior to the tenth (10th) day before the corporation first mails its notice of meeting for such meeting to the stockholders. Stockholders shall be entitled to cast votes “against” nominees for director unless plurality voting applies in the election of directors.

 

(b) Action by the stockholders on a matter other than the election of directors is approved if the number of votes cast in favor of the action exceeds the number of votes cast in opposition to the action, unless a greater number is required by applicable law or the requirements of any national securities exchange on which the capital stock of the corporation is listed.

Section 3.7.  Proxies.  A stockholder may vote either in person or by proxy executed in writing by the stockholder or by his duly authorized attorney-in-fact.  No proxy shall be valid after six months from the date of its execution, unless otherwise provided in the proxy.

ARTICLE VI

INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS

 

Section 6.1  Policy.  It is the policy and intention of the corporation to provide to its officers and directors broad and comprehensive indemnification from liability to the full extent permitted by law, as amended from time to time.

 

Section 6.2  Right to Indemnification.  Each person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to or is 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, or a person of whom he or she is the legal representative, is or was a director or officer of the corporation or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or of a partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, including service with respect to employee benefit plans, whether the basis of such proceeding is an alleged action or inaction in an official capacity or in any other capacity while serving as a director, officer, employee or agent, shall be indemnified and held harmless by the corporation to the fullest extent permitted by the laws of Nevada, as the same exist or may hereafter be amended, against all costs, charges, expenses, liabilities and losses (including attorneys’ fees, judgments, fines, ERISA excise taxes or penalties and amounts paid or to be paid in settlement) reasonably incurred or suffered by such person in connection therewith, and such indemnification shall continue as to a person who has ceased to be a director, officer, employee or agent and shall inure to the benefit of his or her heirs, executors and administrators; provided, however, that except as provided in Section 6.3 hereof, the corporation shall indemnify any such person seeking indemnification in connection with a proceeding (or part thereof) initiated by such person only if such proceeding (or part thereof) was authorized by the Board of Directors of the corporation.  The right to indemnification conferred in this article shall be a contract right and shall include the right to be paid by the corporation the expenses incurred in defending any such proceeding as they are incurred and in advance of its final disposition; provided, however, that, if Nevada law requires, the payment of such expenses incurred by a director or officer 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 person while a director or officer, including, without limitation, service to an employee benefit plan) in advance of the final disposition of a proceeding, shall be made only upon delivery to the corporation of an undertaking, by or on behalf of such director or officer, to repay all amounts so advanced if it shall ultimately be determined that such director or officer is not entitled to be indemnified under this article or otherwise.  The corporation may, by action of its Board of Directors, provide indemnification to employees and agents of the corporation with the same scope and effect as the foregoing indemnification of directors and officers.

 

Section 6.3  Right of Claimant to Bring Suit.  If a claim under this article is not paid in full by the corporation, the claimant may at any time thereafter bring suit against the corporation to recover the unpaid amount of the claim and, if successful in whole or in part, the claimant shall be entitled to be paid also the expense of prosecuting such

 

10



 

claim.  It shall be a defense to any such action (other than an action brought to enforce a claim for expenses incurred in defending any proceeding in advance of its final disposition where the required undertaking, if any is required, has been tendered to the corporation) that the claimant has failed to meet a standard of conduct which makes it permissible under Nevada law for the corporation to indemnify the claimant for the amount claimed.  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 action that indemnification of the claimant is permissible in the circumstances because he or she has met such standard of conduct, nor an actual determination by the corporation (including its Board of Directors, independent legal counsel or its stockholders) that the claimant has not met such standard of conduct, shall be a defense to the action or create a presumption that the claimant has failed to meet such standard of conduct.

 

Section 6.4  Non Exclusivity of Rights.  The right to indemnification and the payment of expenses incurred in defending a proceeding in advance of its final disposition conferred in this article shall not be exclusive of any other right which any person may have or hereafter acquire under any statute, provision of the Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, agreement, vote of stockholders, or disinterested directors or otherwise.

 

Section 6.5  Insurance.  The corporation may maintain insurance, at its expense, to protect itself and any director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation or other corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise against any such expense, liability or loss, whether or not the corporation would have the power to indemnify such person against such expense, liability or loss under Nevada law.

 

Section 6.6  Expenses as a Witness.  To the extent that any director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation is by reason of such position, or a position with another entity at the request of the corporation, a witness in any action, suit or proceeding, he or she shall be indemnified against all costs and expenses actually and reasonably incurred by him or her or on his or her behalf in connection therewith.

 

Section 6.7  Indemnity Agreement.  The corporation may enter into agreements with any director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation to the fullest extent permitted by Nevada law.

 

Section 6.8  Effect of Repeal or Modification.  Any repeal or modification of this section shall not result in any liability for a director with respect to any action or omission occurring prior to such repeal or modification.
