SECTION 1.2. Other Offices. The Company may also have offices at such other places both within and without the State of Delaware as the Board of Directors may from time to time determine or the business of the Company may require.

ARTICLE II

Meetings of Stockholders

SECTION 2.1. Annual Meeting. The annual meeting of the stockholders shall be held on the fourth Tuesday in January in each year, but may be adjusted by direction of the Board of Directors given not less than 20 days prior to the date herein fixed, for the purpose of electing directors and for the transaction of such other business as may come before the meeting. If the election of directors shall not be held on the day herein designated for the annual meeting, or at any adjournment thereof, the Board of Directors shall cause such election to be held at a special meeting of the stockholders as soon thereafter as convenient.

SECTION 2.2. No Stockholder Consent; Special Meetings. Subject to the rights of the holders of any class or series of stock having a preference over the Common Stock of the Company as to dividends or upon liquidation (“Preferred Stock”), any action required or permitted to be taken by the stockholders of the Company must be effected at an annual or special meeting of stockholders of the Company and may not be effected by any consent in writing by such stockholders. Subject to the rights of the holders of any class or series of Preferred Stock, special meetings of stockholders of the Company may be called only by the Board of Directors pursuant to a resolution adopted by a majority of the Whole Board (as such term is defined in Article EIGHTH of the Company’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Incorporation”)).


SECTION 2.3. Place of Meetings. All meetings of the stockholders for the election of directors shall be held at such place, within or without the State of Delaware, as the Board of Directors shall by resolution designate as the place of such meeting. Meetings of stockholders for any other purpose may be held at such place within or without the State of Delaware and at such time as shall be determined by the Chairman of the Board, or in his absence, by the Secretary and stated in the notice of the meeting or in a duly executed waiver of notice thereof.

SECTION 2.4. Notice of Meetings. Written or printed notice stating the place, date and hour of each annual or special meeting of the stockholders and, in the case of a special meeting, the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called, shall be given not less than ten (10) nor more than sixty (60) days before the date of the meeting, to each stockholder of record entitled to vote at such stockholder’s address as it appears on the records of the Company.

SECTION 2.5. Stockholder List. At least 10 days before every meeting of stockholders, the Secretary shall prepare a complete list of the stockholders entitled to vote at the meeting, arranged in alphabetical order, and showing the address of each such stockholder and the number of shares having the right to vote registered in the name of each such stockholder. Such list shall be open to examination by any stockholder of the Company during ordinary business hours, for any purpose germane to the meeting, for a period of at least ten days prior to the meeting, at a place within the city where the meeting is to be held or at the corporate office of the Company, which place shall be specified in the notice of the meeting, or, if not so specified, at the place where the meeting is to be held. The list shall be produced and kept at the time and place of the meeting during the whole time thereof, and subject to the inspection of any such stockholder who may be present.

SECTION 2.6. Quorum. The holders of a majority of the stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote thereat, present in person or represented by proxy, shall be requisite for, and shall constitute, a quorum at all meetings of the stockholders of the Company for the transaction of business, except as otherwise provided by statute or these By-Laws. Shares entitled to vote at a meeting of the stockholders that abstain from voting or are not voted at such meeting (“Abstentions”) shall be counted for the purpose of establishing a quorum for the transaction of business at such meeting. Shares held by any broker who has not received voting instructions from the beneficial owner of such shares and is prohibited from exercising discretionary authority to vote such shares at a meeting of the stockholders (“Broker Non-Votes”) shall not be counted for the purpose of establishing a quorum for the transaction of business at such meeting. If a quorum shall not be present or represented at any meeting of the stockholders, the stockholders entitled to vote thereat 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 if the adjournment is for thirty days or less or unless after the adjournment a new record date is fixed, until a quorum shall be present or represented. 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 noticed.


SECTION 2.7. Proxies. At every meeting of the stockholders, each stockholder having the right to vote thereat shall be entitled to vote in person or by proxy. Such proxy shall be appointed by an instrument in writing subscribed by such stockholder and bearing a date not more than three years prior to such meeting, unless such proxy provides for a longer period, and shall be filed with the Secretary of the Company before, or at the time of, the meeting.

SECTION 2.8. Voting. At every meeting of the stockholders, each stockholder shall be entitled to one vote for each share of stock entitled to vote thereat which is registered in the name of such stockholder on the books of the Company. When a quorum is present at any meeting of the stockholders, all matters other than the election of directors shall be determined by a majority of the votes cast at such meeting by the holders of shares of stock present or represented by proxy and entitled to vote thereat, unless otherwise provided by statute, the Certificate of Incorporation or these By-Laws. When a quorum is present at any meeting of stockholders for the election of directors, the directors shall be elected by a plurality of the votes cast at such meeting by the holders of shares of stock present or represented by proxy and entitled to vote thereat. For the avoidance of doubt, Abstentions and Broker Non-Votes shall not be counted as votes cast.

SECTION 2.9. Voting of Certain Shares. Shares standing in the name of another corporation, domestic or foreign, and entitled to vote may be voted by such officer, agent, or proxy as the by-laws of such corporation may prescribe or, in the absence of such provision, as the Board of Directors of such corporation may determine. Shares standing in the name of a deceased person, a minor or an incompetent and entitled to vote may be voted by his administrator, executor, guardian or conservator, as the case may be, either in person or by proxy. Shares standing in the name of a trustee and entitled to vote may be voted by such trustee, either in person or by proxy to the full extent provided by Delaware law. Shares standing in the name of a receiver and entitled to vote may be voted by such receiver. A stockholder, some or all of whose shares otherwise entitled to vote are pledged, shall be entitled to vote such pledged shares unless, in the transfer of such pledged shares on the books of the Company, such stockholder or pledgor has expressly empowered the pledgee to vote thereon, in which case only the pledgee, or the pledgee’s proxy, may represent such stock and vote thereon. Shares standing in the name of two or more persons and shares with two or more persons having the same fiduciary relationship respecting such shares shall be voted in accordance with the provisions of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware.

SECTION 2.10. Treasury Stock. Shares of this Company’s stock held by this Company, or by another corporation of which a majority of the shares entitled to vote in the election of directors of such corporation is held by this Company, shall not be voted at any meeting and shall not be counted in determining the total number of outstanding shares. Nothing in this section shall be construed as limiting the right of this Company to vote shares of its own stock held by it in a fiduciary capacity.


SECTION 2.11. Stockholder Introduction of Business and Nomination of Director Candidates.

(a) At any annual meeting of the stockholders, only such business shall be conducted as shall have been brought before the meeting (i) by or at the direction of the Board of Directors or (ii) by any stockholder of the Company who is entitled to vote with respect thereto and who complies with the notice procedures set forth in this Section 2.11(a), or, with respect to the nomination of directors, Section 2.11(c). 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 Company. To be timely, a stockholder’s notice must be delivered or mailed to and received at the principal executive offices of the Company not less than 90 days nor more than 120 days prior to the one-year anniversary of the date of the preceding year’s annual meeting of the stockholders; provided, however, that in the event that the date of the annual meeting is advanced or delayed by more than 30 days after the anniversary of the preceding year’s annual meeting, or in the event that no annual meeting was held the preceding year, notice by the stockholder will be timely if so delivered not earlier than the close of business on the 120th day prior to the date of the annual meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of the 90th day prior to the date of the annual meeting or the 10th day following the day on which public announcement of the date of such annual meeting is first made. The public announcement of a postponement or adjournment of an annual meeting shall not commence a new time period for the giving of a stockholder’s notice as described above. A stockholder’s notice to the Secretary shall set forth (i) as to each matter such 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 any Proposing Person (as defined in Section 2.11(d) of these By-laws) in the proposed business; and (ii) as to such stockholder and any other Proposing Person (w) the name and address of such Proposing Person, (x) the class and number of shares of the Company’s capital stock that are beneficially owned, directly or indirectly, by each such Proposing Person, (y) a brief description of any proxy, contract, arrangement, understanding or relationship pursuant to which any Proposing Party, either directly or acting in concert with another party or parties, has a right to vote any shares of capital stock of the Company, and (z) a brief description of any contract, arrangement or understanding with respect to the proposed business to which any Proposing Person is a party. Notwithstanding anything in the By-Laws to the contrary, no business shall be brought before or conducted at an annual meeting except in accordance with the provisions of this Section 2.11(a). The officer of the Company or other person presiding over the annual meeting shall, if the facts so warrant, determine and declare to the meeting that business was not properly brought before the meeting in accordance with the provisions of this Section 2.11(a) and, if he should so determine, he shall so declare to the meeting and any such business so determined to be not properly brought before the meeting shall not be transacted.

(b) At any special meeting of the stockholders, only such business shall be conducted as shall have been brought before the meeting by or at the direction of the Board of Directors.


(c) Only persons who are nominated in accordance with the procedures set forth in these By-Laws shall be eligible for election as directors. Nominations of persons for election to the Board of Directors of the Company may be made at a meeting of stockholders at which directors are to be elected only (i) by or at the direction of the Board of Directors or (ii) by any stockholder of the Company entitled to vote for the election of directors at the meeting who complies with the notice procedures set forth in this Section 2.11(c). Such nominations, other than those made by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, shall be made by timely notice in writing to the Secretary of the Company. To be timely, a stockholder’s notice must be delivered or mailed to and received at the principal executive offices of the Company not less than 90 days nor more than 120 days prior to the one-year anniversary of the date of the preceding year’s annual meeting of the stockholders; provided, however, that in the event that the date of the annual meeting is advanced or delayed by more than 30 days after the anniversary of the preceding year’s annual meeting, or in the event that no annual meeting was held the preceding year, notice by the stockholder will be timely if so delivered not earlier than the close of business on the 120th day prior to the date of the annual meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of the 90th day prior to the date of the annual meeting or the 10th day following the day on which public announcement of the date of such annual meeting is first made. The public announcement of a postponement or adjournment of an annual meeting shall not commence a new time period for the giving of a stockholder’s notice as described above. Such stockholder’s notice shall set forth (i) as to each person whom such stockholder proposes to nominate for election or re-election as a director, 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 (the “Exchange Act”), including 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) as to such stockholder and any other Proposing Person (w) the name and address of such Proposing Person, (x) the class and number of shares of the Company’s capital stock that are beneficially owned, directly or indirectly, by each such Proposing Person, (y) a brief description of any proxy, contract, arrangement, understanding or relationship pursuant to which any Proposing Party, either directly or acting in concert with another party or parties, has a right to vote any shares of capital stock of the Company, and (z) a brief description of any contract, arrangement or understanding with respect to any proposed nominee or nominees to which any Proposing Person is a party. 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 Company that information required to be set forth in a stockholder’s notice of nomination which pertains to the nominee. No person shall be eligible for election as a director of the Company unless nominated in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.11(c). The officer of the Company or other person presiding at the meeting shall, if the facts so warrant, determine and declare to the meeting that a nomination was not made in accordance with such provisions and, if he should so determine, he shall so declare to the meeting and the defective nomination shall be disregarded.

(d) For the purposes of this Section 2.11, “Proposing Person” means (i) any stockholder who submits a notice to the Secretary of the Company pursuant to Section 2.11(a) and/or Section 2.11(c) of these By-laws, (ii) the beneficial owner or owners, if any, on whose behalf any such notice is submitted, (iii) any party or parties acting in concert with such stockholder in connection with the business proposed and/or the person or persons nominated for election or re-election to the Board of Directors, and (iv) any party or parties directly or indirectly controlling, controlled by, or under common control with any of the foregoing.

(e) In addition, each Proposing Person must comply with all applicable requirements of state law and the Exchange Act, and any rules and regulations thereunder, with respect to matters set forth in this Section 2.11. Nothing in these By-laws shall be deemed to affect any right of a stockholder to request inclusion of proposals in the Corporation’s proxy statement pursuant to Rule 14a-8 (or any successor provision) under the Exchange Act.


ARTICLE III

Directors

SECTION 3.1. Number, Term of Office and Election.

(a) Subject to the rights of the holders of any class or series of Preferred Stock to elect additional directors under specified circumstances, the number of directors shall be fixed from time to time exclusively by the Board of Directors pursuant to a resolution adopted by a majority of the Whole Board.

(b) The directors, other than those who may be elected by the holders of any class or series of Preferred Stock, shall be divided, with respect to the time for which they severally hold office, into three classes, whose size shall be as equal as possible.

(c) The term of office of the first class shall expire at the 1988 annual meeting of stockholders, the term of office of the second class shall expire at the 1989 annual meeting of stockholders, and the term of office of the third class shall expire at the 1990 annual meeting of stockholders, with each director to hold office until his or her successor shall have been duly elected and qualified. When creating a new directorship through expansion of the size of the Board, the Board shall designate the class depending upon the commencement of the term of office of the new director. At each annual meeting of stockholders, commencing with the 1988 annual meeting, (i) directors elected to succeed those directors whose terms then expire shall be elected for a term of office to expire at the third succeeding annual meeting of stockholders after their election, with each director to hold office until his or her successor shall have been duly elected and qualified and (ii) if authorized by a resolution of the Board of Directors, directors may be elected by the stockholders to fill any vacancy on the Board of Directors regardless of how such vacancy shall have been created.

(d) Directors need not be stockholders of this Company nor residents of the State of Delaware.

SECTION 3.2. Resignations, Vacancies and Removal.

(a) Any director may resign at any time by giving written notice to the Board of Directors or to the Chairman of the Board. Any such resignation shall take effect at the date of the receipt of such notice or at any later time specified therein; and, unless otherwise specified therein, the acceptance of such resignation shall not be necessary to make it effective.


(b) Subject to the rights of the holders of any class or series of Preferred Stock, and unless the Board of Directors otherwise determines by resolution, newly created directorships resulting from any increase in the authorized number of directors or any vacancies in the Board of Directors resulting from death, resignation, retirement, disqualification, removal from office or other cause may be filled by a majority vote of the directors then in office, though less than a quorum, and directors so chosen shall hold office for a term expiring at the annual meeting of stockholders at which the term of office of the class to which they have been elected expires and until such director’s successor shall have been duly elected and qualified. No decrease in the number of authorized directors constituting the Whole Board shall shorten the term of any incumbent director.

(c) Subject to the rights of the holders of any class or series of Preferred Stock, any director, or the entire Board of Directors, may be removed from office at any time, but only for cause and only by the affirmative vote of the holders of at least sixty-six and two thirds percent (66-2/3%) of the voting power of all of the then outstanding shares of capital stock of the Company entitled to vote generally in the election of directors (the “Voting Stock”), voting together as a single class.

SECTION 3.3. Management of Affairs of Company. The property and business of the Company shall be managed by its Board of Directors, which may exercise all such powers of the Company and do all such lawful acts and things 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 stockholders. In case the Company shall transact any business or enter into any contract with a director, or with any firm of which one or more of its directors are members, or with any trust, firm, corporation or association in which any director is a stockholder, director or officer or otherwise interested, such directors shall be severally under the duty of disclosing all material facts as to their interest to the remaining directors promptly if and when such interested directors shall become advised of the circumstances; and no such contract or transaction shall be void or voidable solely by reason of such disclosed interest or solely because such interested director was present at or participated in the meeting of the board or committee thereof which authorized the contract or transaction, or solely because his or their votes are counted for such purpose, if the board or committee thereof in good faith authorized such contract or transaction by a vote sufficient for such purpose without counting the vote of such interested director or directors. In the case of continuing relationships in the normal course of business, such disclosure shall be deemed effective, when once given, as to all transactions and contracts subsequently entered into.

SECTION 3.4. Regular Meetings. An annual meeting of the Board of Directors shall be held, without other notice than this By-Law, immediately after, and at the same place as, the annual meeting of the stockholders. The Board of Directors may provide, by resolution, the time and place, either within or without the State of Delaware, for the holding of additional regular meetings without other notice than such resolution.

SECTION 3.5. Special Meetings. Special meetings of the Board of Directors may be called by the Chairman of the Board or any two directors to be held at such time and place, either within or without the State of Delaware, as shall be designated by the call and specified in the notice of such meeting; and notice thereof shall be given as provided in Section 3.6 of these By-Laws.


SECTION 3.6. Notice of Special Meetings. Except as otherwise prescribed by statute, written notice of the time and place of each special meeting of the Board of Directors shall be given at least three days prior to the time of holding the meeting. Any director may waive notice of any meeting. The attendance of a director at any meeting shall constitute a waiver of notice of such meeting, except when a director attends a meeting for the express purpose of objecting to the transaction of any business because the meeting is not lawfully called or convened. Unless otherwise provided by statute or these By-Laws, neither the business to be transacted at, nor the purpose of, any special meeting of the Board of Directors need be specified in any notice, or waiver of notice, of such meeting. (See also Articles IV and X of these By-Laws).

SECTION 3.7. Quorum. At each meeting of the Board of Directors, the presence of not less than a majority of the directors then in office shall be necessary and sufficient to constitute a quorum for the transaction of business, and the act of a majority of the directors present at any meeting at which there is a quorum shall be the act of the Board of Directors, except as may be otherwise specifically provided by statute. If a quorum shall not be present at any meeting of directors, the directors present thereat may adjourn the meeting from time to time, without notice other than announcement at the meeting, until a quorum shall be present. In determining the presence of a quorum at a meeting of the directors or a committee thereof for the purpose of authorizing a contract or transaction between the Company and one or more of its directors, or between the Company and any other corporation, partnership, association, or other organization in which one or more of its directors are directors or officers, or have a financial interest, such interested directors may be counted in determining a quorum.

SECTION 3.8. Presumption of Assent. Unless otherwise provided by statute, a director of the Company who is present at a meeting of the Board of Directors at which action is taken on any corporate matter shall be conclusively presumed to have assented to the action taken unless his dissent shall be entered in the minutes of the meeting or unless he shall file his written dissent to such action with the person acting as Secretary of the meeting before the adjournment thereof or shall forward such dissent by registered mail to the Secretary of the Company immediately after the adjournment of the meeting. Such right to dissent shall not apply to a director who voted in favor of such action.

SECTION 3.9. Action Without Meeting. Any action required or permitted to be taken at any meeting of the Board of Directors, or of any committee thereof, may be taken without a meeting, if all members of the Board or of such committee, as the case may be, consent thereto in writing and such writing or writings are filed with the minutes of proceedings of the Board or such committee.

SECTION 3.10. Presiding Officer. The presiding officer of any meeting of the Board of Directors shall be the Chairman of the Board, or in his absence the Chairman of the Audit Committee, or in his absence any other director elected Chairman by vote of a majority of the directors present at the meeting.


SECTION 3.11. Committee of Directors. The Board of Directors may, by resolution passed by a majority of the Whole Board, designate one or more committees, each committee to consist of two or more directors of the Company, which to the extent provided in the resolution shall have and may exercise the powers of the Board of Directors in the management of the business and affairs of the Company, and may authorize the seal of the Company to be affixed to all papers which may require it. The Board of Directors may designate one or more directors as alternate members of any such committee, who may replace any absent or disqualified member thereof. In the absence or disqualification of any member of such committee or committees and appointed alternates who have had notice of such meeting, the member or members thereof present at any meeting and not disqualified from voting, whether or not he or they constitute a quorum, may unanimously appoint another member of the Board of Directors to act at the meeting in the place of any such absent or disqualified member. Such committee or committees shall have such name or names as may be determined from time to time by resolution adopted by the Board of Directors.

SECTION 3.12. Executive Committee. The Board of Directors may, in its discretion, by resolution passed by a majority of the Whole Board, designate an Executive Committee of the Board of Directors, which committee shall consist of at least three directors and shall have and exercise such of the authority of the Board of Directors when the Board is not in session in the management of the Company as shall be delegated to it from time to time by the Board of Directors. The creation of the Executive Committee and the delegation thereto of authority shall not operate to relieve the Board of Directors or any member thereof of any responsibility imposed upon it or him by law. The directors may designate one or more directors as alternate members of the Executive Committee who may replace any absent or disqualified member at any meeting of the Executive Committee. If established, the Executive Committee shall consider and report to the Board of Directors such matters as shall be referred to the Executive Committee by the Board from time to time.

SECTION 3.13. Fees and Compensation of Directors. By resolution of the Board of Directors, directors who are not employees of the Company may receive an annual retainer fee for serving as a director and may receive meeting fees for attendance at each regular or special meeting of the Board of Directors or any standing or special committees of the Board of Directors. An additional annual retainer fee may be paid to the Chairman of the Board of Directors or the Chairman of any standing or special committee of the Board of Directors. Directors may also receive a per diem payment for their services on behalf of the Company and may receive annual or special grants of stock, stock options or other forms of incentive compensation which will provide directors with an equity interest in the Company. Members of the Board of Directors shall also be allowed their reasonable traveling expenses when actually engaged in the business of the Company. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to preclude any director from serving the Company in any other capacity and receiving compensation therefor.


SECTION 3.14. Reliance Upon Records. Every director of the Company, or member of any committee designated by the Board of Directors pursuant to authority conferred by Section 3.11 or Section 3.12 of these By-Laws, shall, in the performance of his duties, be fully protected in relying in good faith upon the books of account or reports made to the Company by any of its officials, or by an independent certified public accountant, or by an appraiser selected with reasonable care by the Board of Directors or by any such committee, or in relying in good faith upon other records of the Company including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, those as to the value and amount of assets, liabilities and/or net profits of the Company, or any other facts pertinent to the existence and amount of surplus or other funds from which dividends might properly be declared or paid, or with which the Company’s stock might properly be purchased or redeemed.

SECTION 3.15. Indemnification Agreements. The Board of Directors may authorize the Company to enter into agreements providing persons who serve as directors, officers, employees, agents or consultants of the Company or as officers or directors of other corporations, partnerships or other business enterprises at the request or direction of the Company with indemnification against liabilities and costs in accordance with the indemnification provisions of the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation and as otherwise permitted by Section 145(f) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware.
