ARTICLE VIII

INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS, OFFICERS AND OTHER PERSONS

Section 1. Mandatory Indemnification of Directors and Officers

The corporation shall, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, indemnify its directors and officers who were or are a party or are threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (whether or not such action, suit or proceeding arises or arose by or in the right of the corporation or other entity) by reason of the fact that such director or officer 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, general partner, agent or fiduciary of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise (including service with respect to employee benefit plans), against expenses (including, but not limited to, attorneys' fees and costs), judgments, fines (including excise taxes assessed on a person with respect to any employee benefit plan) and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by such director or officer in accordance with such action, suit or proceeding, except as otherwise provided in Section 3 of Article VIII hereof. Persons who were directors or officers of the corporation prior to the date this Article VIII is approved by shareholders of the corporation, but who do not hold such office on or after such date, shall not be covered by this Section 1 of Article VIII. A director or officer of the corporation entitled to indemnification under this Section 1 of Article VIII is hereafter called a "person covered by Section 1 hereof."

EXPENSES

Section 2. Expenses incurred by a person covered by Section 1 hereof in defending a threatened, pending or completed civil or criminal action, suit or proceeding shall be paid by the corporation in advance of the final disposition of such action, suit or proceeding upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of such person to repay such amount if it shall ultimately be determined that such person is not entitled to be indemnified by the corporation, except as otherwise provided in Section 3 of Article VIII.

23


EXCEPTIONS

Section 3. No indemnification under Section 1 of Article VIII or advancement or reimbursement of expenses under Section 2 of Article VIII shall be provided to a person covered by Section 1 hereof (a) with respect to expenses or the payment of profits arising from the purchase or sale of securities of the corporation in violation of Section 16(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934; (b) if a judgment or other final adjudication adverse to such director or officer establishes that his acts or omissions (i) were in breach of his duty of loyalty to the corporation or its shareholders, (ii) were not in good faith or involved a knowing violation of law, or (iii) resulted in the receipt by such director or officer of an improper personal benefit; (c) for expenses or liabilities of any type whatsoever (including, but not limited to, judgments, fines, and amounts paid in settlement) which have been paid to, or for the benefit of, such person by an insurance carrier under a policy of liability insurance the premiums for which are paid by the corporation or an individual or entity other than such director or officer; and (d) for amounts paid in settlement of any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding without the written consent of the corporation, which written consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. The Board of Directors of the corporation is hereby authorized, at any time by resolution, to add to the above list of exceptions from the right of indemnification under Section 1 of Article VIII or advancement or reimbursement of expenses under Section 2 of Article VIII, but any such additional exception shall not apply with respect to any act or omission which has occurred prior to the date that the Board of Directors in fact adopts such resolution. Any such additional exception may, at any time after its adoption, be amended, supplemented, waived, or terminated by further resolution of the Board of Directors of the corporation.

24


CONTINUATION OF RIGHTS

Section 4. The indemnification and advancement or reimbursement of expenses provided by, or granted pursuant to, this Article VIII shall continue as to a person who has ceased to be a director or officer of the corporation, and shall inure to the benefit of the heirs, executors and administrators of such person.

GENERAL PROVISIONS

Section 5. (a) The term "to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law", as used in this Article VIII, shall mean the maximum extent permitted by public policy, common law or statute. Any person covered by Section 1 hereof may, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, elect to have the right to indemnification or to advancement or reimbursement of expenses, interpreted, at such person's option, (i) on the basis of the applicable law on the date this Article VIII was approved by shareholders, or (ii) on the basis of the applicable law in effect at the time of the occurrence of the act or omission or acts or omissions giving rise to the action, suit or proceeding, or (iii) on the basis of the applicable law in effect at the time indemnification is sought.

(b) The right of a person covered by Section 1 hereof to be indemnified or to receive an advancement or reimbursement of expenses pursuant to Section 2 of Article VIII (i) may also be enforced as a contract right pursuant to which the person entitled thereto may bring suit as if the provisions hereof were set forth in a separate written contract between the corporation and such person, (ii) to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, is intended to be retroactive and shall be available with respect to acts or omissions occurring prior to the adoption hereof, and (iii) shall continue to exist after the rescission or restrictive modification (as determined by such person) of this Article VIII with respect to acts or omissions occurring before such rescission or restrictive modification is adopted.

25


(c) If a request for indemnification or for the advancement or reimbursement of expenses pursuant hereto is not paid in full by the corporation within thirty days after a written claim has been received by the corporation together with all supporting information reasonably requested by the corporation, the claimant may at any time thereafter bring suit against the corporation to recover the unpaid amount of the claim (plus interest at the prime rate announced from time to time by the corporation's primary banker) and, if successful in whole or in part, the claimant shall be entitled also to be paid the expenses (including, but not limited to, attorney's fees and costs) of prosecuting such claim. Neither the failure of the corporation (including its Board of Directors, independent legal counsel or its shareholders) to have made a determination prior to the commencement of such action that indemnification of or the advancement or reimbursement of expenses to the claimant is proper in the circumstances, nor an actual determination by the corporation (including its Board of Directors, independent legal counsel or its shareholders) that the claimant is not entitled to indemnification or to the reimbursement or advancement of expenses, shall be a defense to the action or create a presumption that the claimant is not so entitled.

(d) The indemnification and advancement or reimbursement of expenses provided by, or granted pursuant to, this Article VIII shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which those seeking indemnification or advancement or reimbursement of expenses may be entitled under the Certificate of Incorporation or any by-law, agreement, vote of shareholders or directors or otherwise, both as to action in such director's or officer's official capacity and as to action in another capacity while holding that office.

26


(e) Nothing contained in this Article VIII shall be construed to limit the rights and powers the corporation possesses under Section 14A:3-5 of the New Jersey Business Corporation Act (as amended from time to time) or otherwise, including, but not limited to, the powers to purchase and maintain insurance, create funds to secure or insure its indemnification obligations, and any other rights or powers the corporation may otherwise have under applicable law.

(f) The provisions of this Article VIII may, at any time (and whether before or after there is any basis for a claim for indemnification or for the advancement or reimbursement of expenses pursuant thereto), be amended, supplemented, waived, or terminated, in whole or in part, with respect to any person covered by Section 1 hereof by a written agreement signed by the corporation and such person.

(g) The corporation shall have the right to appoint the attorney for a person covered by Section 1 hereof, provided such appointment is not unreasonable under the circumstances.

OPTIONAL INDEMNIFICATION

27


PRIOR BY-LAWS

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 allotment of any right, or in order to make a determination of shareholders for any other proper purpose, the board shall choose in advance a date as the record date for such determination of shareholders. Any such record date shall in any case be not more than sixty days nor less than ten days prior to the date on which the particular action, requiring such determination of shareholders, is to be taken.
