                             STOCKHOLDERS' MEETINGS
 
        SECTION 4.  PLACE OF MEETINGS. Meetings of the stockholders of the

designated from time to time by the Board of Directors. Nominations of persons

of giving of notice provided for in the following paragraph,
 
 
                                       1.
<PAGE>   7
 
who is entitled to vote at the meeting and who complied with the notice
procedures set forth in this Section 5.
 
                (b)  At an annual meeting of the stockholders, only such
business shall be conducted as shall have been properly brought before the
meeting. For nominations or other business to be properly brought before an
annual meeting by a stockholder pursuant to clause (iii) of Section 5(a) of
these Bylaws: (i) the stockholder must have given timely notice thereof in
writing to the Secretary of the corporation; (ii) such other business must be a
proper matter for stockholder action under the Delaware General Corporation Law;
(iii) if the stockholder, or the beneficial owner on whose behalf any such
proposal or nomination is made, has provided the corporation with a Solicitation
Notice (as defined in this Section 5(b)), such stockholder or beneficial owner
must, in the case of a proposal, have delivered a proxy statement and form of
proxy to holders of at least the percentage of the corporation's voting shares
required under applicable law to carry any such proposal, or, in the case of a
nomination or nominations, have delivered a proxy statement and form of proxy to
holders of a percentage of the corporation's voting shares reasonably believed
by such stockholder or beneficial owner to be sufficient to elect the nominee or
nominees proposed to be nominated by such stockholder, and must, in either case,
have included in such materials the Solicitation Notice; and (iv) if no
Solicitation Notice relating thereto has been timely provided pursuant to this
section, the stockholder or beneficial owner proposing such business or
nomination must not have solicited a number of proxies sufficient to have
required the delivery of such a Solicitation Notice under this Section 5. To be
timely, a stockholder's notice shall be delivered to the Secretary at the
principal executive offices of the Corporation not later than the close of
business on the ninetieth (90th) day nor earlier than the close of business on
the one hundred twentieth (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 advanced more than thirty (30) days prior to or
delayed by more than thirty (30) days after the anniversary of the preceding
year's annual meeting, notice by the stockholder to be timely must be so
delivered not earlier than the close of business on the one hundred twentieth
(120th) day prior to such annual meeting and not later than the close of
business on the later of the ninetieth (90th) day prior to such annual meeting
or the tenth (10th) day following the day on which public announcement of the
date of such meeting is first made. In no event shall the public announcement of
an adjournment of an annual meeting commence a new time period for the giving of
a stockholder's notice as described above. Such stockholder's notice shall set
forth: (A) as to each person whom the stockholder proposed to nominate for
election or reelection as a director all information relating to such person
that is required to be disclosed in solicitations of proxies for election of
directors in an election contest, or is otherwise required, in each case
pursuant to Regulation 14A under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended
(the "1934 Act") and Rule 14a-11 thereunder (including such person's written
consent to being named in the proxy statement as a nominee and to serving as a
director if elected); (B) as to any other business that the stockholder proposes
to bring before the meeting, a brief description of the business desired to be
brought before the meeting, the reasons for conducting such business at the
meeting and any material interest in such business of such stockholder and the
beneficial owner, if any, on whose behalf the proposal is made; and (C) as to
the stockholder giving the notice and the beneficial owner, if any, on whose
behalf the nomination or proposal is made (i) the name and address of such
stockholder, as they appear on the corporation's books, and of such beneficial
owner, (ii) the class and number of shares of the corporation which are owned
beneficially and of record by such stockholder and such beneficial owner, and
(iii)
 
 
                                       2.
<PAGE>   8
 
whether either such stockholder or beneficial owner intends to deliver a proxy
statement and form of proxy to holders of, in the case of the proposal, at least
the percentage of the corporation's voting shares required under applicable law
to carry the proposal or, in the case of a nomination or nominations, a
sufficient number of holders of the corporation's voting shares to elect such
nominee or nominees (an affirmative statement of such intent, a "Solicitation
Notice").
 
                (c) Notwithstanding anything in the second sentence of Section
5(b) of these Bylaws to the contrary, in the event that the number of directors
to be elected to the Board of Directors of the Corporation is increased and
there is no public announcement naming all of the nominees for director or
specifying the size of the increased Board of Directors made by the corporation
at least one hundred (100) days prior to the first anniversary of the preceding
year's annual meeting, a stockholder's notice required by this Section 5 shall
also be considered timely, but only with respect to nominees for any new
positions created by such increase, if it shall be delivered to the Secretary at
the principal executive offices of the corporation not later than the close of
business on the tenth (10th) day following the day on which such public
announcement is first made by the corporation.
 
                (d) Only such persons who are nominated in accordance with the
procedures set forth in this Section 5 shall be eligible to serve as directors
and only such business shall be conducted at a meeting of stockholders as shall
have been brought before the meeting in accordance with the procedures set forth
in this Section 5. Except as otherwise provided by law, the Chairman of the
meeting shall have the power and duty 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 these Bylaws and, if
any proposed nomination or business is not in compliance with these Bylaws, to
declare that such defective proposal or nomination shall not be presented for
stockholder action at the meeting and shall be disregarded.
 
                (e) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 5,
in order to include information with respect to a stockholder proposal in the
proxy statement and form of proxy for a stockholder's meeting, stockholders must
provide notice as required by the regulations promulgated under the 1934 Act.
Nothing in these Bylaws shall be deemed to affect any rights of stockholders to
request inclusion of proposals in the corporation's proxy statement pursuant to
Rule 14a-8 under the 1934 Act.
 
                (f) For purposes of this Section 5, "public announcement" 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 1934 Act.
 
        SECTION 6.  SPECIAL MEETINGS.
 
                (a) Special meetings of the stockholders of the corporation may
be called, for any purpose or purposes, by (i) the Chairman of the Board of
Directors, (ii) the Chief Executive Officer, (iii) the President, or (iv) the
Board of Directors, pursuant to a resolution adopted by a majority of the total
number of authorized directors (whether or not there exist any vacancies in
 
 
                                       3.
<PAGE>   9
 
previously authorized directorships at the time any such resolution is presented
to the Board for adoption) and shall be held at such place, on such date, and at
such time as they or he shall fix.
 
                (b) If a special meeting is properly called by any person or
persons other than the Board of Directors, the request shall be in writing,
specifying the time of such meeting and the general nature of the business
proposed to be transacted, and shall be delivered personally or sent by
registered mail or by telegraphic or other facsimile transmission to the
Chairman of the Board of Directors, the Chief Executive Officer, the President,
any Vice President, or the Secretary of the corporation (or if called by one of
such officers to an alternative officer listed above) for delivery to the Board
of Directors. No business may be transacted at such special meeting otherwise
than specified in such notice. The Board of Directors shall determine the time
and place of such special meeting, which shall be held not less than thirty-five
(35) nor more than one hundred twenty (120) days after the date of the receipt
of the request. Upon determination of the time and place of the meeting, the
officer receiving the request shall cause notice to be given to the stockholders
entitled to vote, in accordance with the provisions of Section 7 of these
Bylaws. If the notice is not given within one hundred (100) days after the
receipt of the request, the person or persons properly requesting the meeting
may set the time and place of the meeting and give the notice. Nothing contained
in this paragraph (b) shall be construed as limiting, fixing, or affecting the
time when a meeting of stockholders called by action of the Board of Directors
may be held.
 
                (c) Nominations of persons for election to the Board of
Directors may be made at a special meeting of stockholders at which directors
are to be elected pursuant to the corporation's notice of meeting (i) by or at
the direction of the Board of Directors or (ii) by any stockholder of the
corporation who is a stockholder of record at the time of giving notice provided
for in these Bylaws who shall be entitled to vote at the meeting and who
complies with the notice procedures set forth in this Section 6(c). In the event
the corporation calls a special meeting of stockholders for the purpose of
electing one or more directors to the Board of Directors, any such stockholder
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 required by Section 5(b) of these Bylaws shall be delivered
to the Secretary at the principal executive offices of the corporation not
earlier than the close of business on the one hundred twentieth (120th) day
prior to such special meeting and not later than the close of business on the
later of the ninetieth (90th) day prior to such meeting or the tenth (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 of Directors to be
elected at such meeting. In no event shall the public announcement of an
adjournment of a special meeting commence a new time period for the giving of a
stockholder's notice as described above
 
        SECTION 7.  NOTICE OF MEETINGS. Except as otherwise provided by law,
written notice of each meeting of stockholders shall be given not less than ten
(10) nor more than sixty (60) days before the date of the meeting to each
stockholder entitled to vote at such meeting, such notice to specify the place,
date and hour and purpose or purposes of the meeting. Notice of the time, place
and purpose of any meeting of stockholders may be waived in writing, signed by
the person entitled to notice thereof, either before or after such meeting, and
will be waived by any stockholder by his attendance thereat in person or by
proxy, except when the stockholder attends a meeting for the express purpose of
objecting, at the beginning of the meeting, to the transaction
 
 
                                       4.
<PAGE>   10
 
of any business because the meeting is not lawfully called or convened. Any
stockholder so waiving notice of such meeting shall be bound by the proceedings
of any such meeting in all respects as if due notice thereof had been given.
 
        SECTION 8.  QUORUM. At all meetings of stockholders, except where
otherwise provided by statute or by the Certificate of Incorporation, or by
these Bylaws, the presence, in person or by proxy duly authorized, of the
holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of stock entitled to vote shall
constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. In the absence of a quorum
any meeting of stockholders may be adjourned, from time to time, either by the
chairman of the meeting or by vote of the holders of a majority of the shares
represented thereat, but no other business shall be transacted at such meeting.
The stockholders present at a duly called or convened meeting, at which a quorum
is present, may continue to transact business until adjournment, notwithstanding
the withdrawal of enough stockholders to leave less than a quorum. Except as
otherwise provided by statute, by Articles VI(C) and VII of the Certificate of
Incorporation relating to removal of directors and approval of certain Business
Transactions, or these Bylaws, in all matters other than the election of
directors, the affirmative vote of the majority of shares present in person or
represented by proxy at the meeting and entitled to vote subject matter shall be
the act of the stockholders. Except as otherwise provided by statute or these
Bylaws, directors shall be elected by a plurality of the votes of the shares
present in person or represented by proxy at the meeting and entitled to vote on
the election of directors. Where a separate vote by a class or classes or series
is required, except as otherwise provided by statute, by Articles VI(C) and VII
of the Certificate of Incorporation relating to removal of directors and
approval of certain Business Transactions or these Bylaws, a majority of the
outstanding shares of such class or classes or series, present in person or
represented by proxy, shall constitute a quorum entitled to take action with
respect to that vote on that matter and, except where otherwise provided by
statute, the aforementioned Articles of the Certificate of Incorporation or
these Bylaws, the affirmative vote of the majority (plurality, in the case of
the election of directors) of the votes cast by the holders of shares of such
class or classes or series shall be the act of such class or classes or series.
 
        SECTION 9.  ADJOURNMENT AND NOTICE OF ADJOURNED MEETINGS. Any meeting of
stockholders, whether annual or special, may be adjourned from time to time
either by the chairman of the meeting or by the vote of a majority of the shares
casting votes. When a meeting is adjourned to another time or place, notice need
not be given of the adjourned meeting if the time and place thereof are
announced at the meeting at which the adjournment is taken. At the adjourned
meeting the corporation may transact any business which might have been
transacted at the original meeting. If the adjournment is for more than thirty
(30) days, or if after the adjournment a new record date is fixed for the
adjourned meeting, a notice of the adjourned meeting shall be given to each
stockholder of record entitled to vote at the meeting.
 
        SECTION 10. VOTING RIGHTS.
 
For the purpose of determining those stockholders entitled to vote at any
meeting of the stockholders, except as otherwise provided by law, only persons
in whose names shares stand on the stock records of the corporation on the
record date, as provided in Section 12 of these Bylaws, shall be entitled to
vote at any meeting of stockholders. Every person entitled to vote or execute
consents shall have the right to do so either in person or by an agent or agents
authorized
 
 
                                       5.
<PAGE>   11
 
by a proxy granted in accordance with Delaware law. An agent so appointed need
not be a stockholder. No proxy shall be voted after three (3) years from its
date of creation unless the proxy provides for a longer period.
 
        SECTION 11. JOINT OR BENEFICIAL OWNERS OF STOCK.
 
                (a) If shares or other securities having voting power stand of
record in the names of two (2) or more persons, whether fiduciaries, members of
a partnership, joint tenants, tenants in common, tenants by the entirety, or
otherwise, or if two (2) or more persons have the same fiduciary relationship
respecting the same shares, unless the Secretary is given written notice to the
contrary and is furnished with a copy of the instrument or order appointing them
or creating the relationship wherein it is so provided, their acts with respect
to voting shall have the following effect: (a) if only one (1) votes, his act
binds all; (b) if more than one (1) votes, the act of the majority so voting
binds all; (c) if more than one (1) votes, but the vote is evenly split on any
particular matter, each faction may vote the securities in question
proportionally, or may apply to the Delaware Court of Chancery for relief as
provided in the Delaware General Corporation Law, Section 217(b). If the
instrument filed with the Secretary shows that any such tenancy is held in
unequal interests, a majority or even-split for the purpose of this subsection
(c) shall be a majority or even-split in interest.
 
        SECTION 12. LIST OF STOCKHOLDERS. The Secretary shall prepare and make,
at least ten (10) days before every meeting of stockholders, a complete list of
the stockholders entitled to vote at said meeting, arranged in alphabetical
order, showing the address of each stockholder and the number of shares
registered in the name of each stockholder. Such list shall be open to the
examination of any stockholder, for any purpose germane to the meeting, during
ordinary business hours, for a period of at least ten (10) days prior to the
meeting, either at a place within the city where the meeting is to be held,
which place shall be specified in the notice of the meeting, or, if not
specified, at the place where the meeting is to be held. The list shall be
produced and kept at the time and place of meeting during the whole time
thereof, and may be inspected by any stockholder who is present.
 
        SECTION 13. ACTION WITHOUT MEETING.
 
                (a) Any action required by statute to be taken at any annual
or special meeting of the stockholders, or any action which may be taken at any
annual or special meeting of the stockholders, may be taken without a meeting,
without prior notice and without a vote, if a consent in writing, setting forth
the action so taken, shall be signed by the holders of outstanding stock having
not less than the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to authorize
or take such action at a meeting at which all shares entitled to vote thereon
were present and voted.
 
                (b) Every written consent shall bear the date of signature of
each stockholder who signs the consent, and no written consent shall be
effective to take the corporate action referred to therein unless, within sixty
(60) days of the earliest dated consent delivered to the corporation in the
manner herein required, written consents signed by a sufficient number of
stockholders to take action are delivered to the corporation by delivery to its
registered office in the State of Delaware, its principal place of business or
an officer or agent of the corporation having custody of the book in which
proceedings of meetings of stockholders are recorded.
 
 
                                       6.
<PAGE>   12
 
Delivery made to a corporation's registered office shall be by hand or by
certified or registered mail, return receipt requested.
 
                (c) Prompt notice of the taking of the corporate action
without a meeting by less than unanimous written consent shall be given to those
stockholders who have not consented in writing. If the action which is consented
to is such as would have required the filing of a certificate under any section
of the Delaware General Corporation Law if such action had been voted on by
stockholders at a meeting thereof, then the certificate filed under such section
shall state, in lieu of any statement required by such section concerning any
vote of stockholders, that written consent has been given in accordance with

debenture or other corporate security, or whose facsimile signature shall appear
thereon or on any such interest coupon. shall have ceased to be such officer
before the bond, debenture or other corporate security so signed or attested
shall have been delivered, such bond, debenture or other corporate security
nevertheless may be adopted by the corporation and issued and delivered as
though the person who signed the same or whose facsimile signature shall have
been used thereon had not ceased to be such officer of the corporation.

                                 INDEMNIFICATION
 
        SECTION 42. INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES AND OTHER
AGENTS.
 
                (a) DIRECTORS AND EXECUTIVE OFFICERS. The corporation shall
indemnify its Directors and executive officers to the fullest extent not
prohibited by the Delaware General Corporation Law or any other applicable law;
provided, however, that the corporation may modify the extent of such
indemnification by individual contracts with its directors and executive
officers; and, provided, further, that the corporation shall not be required to
indemnify any director or executive officer in connection with any proceeding
(or part thereof) initiated by such person or any proceeding by such person
against the corporation or its Directors, officers, employees or other agents
unless (i) such indemnification is expressly required to be made by law, (ii)
the proceeding was authorized by the Board of Directors of the corporation or
(iii) such indemnification is provided by the corporation, in its sole
discretion, pursuant to the powers vested in the corporation under the Delaware
General Corporation Law or any other applicable law or (iv) such indemnification
is required to be made under subsection (e).
 
                (b) OTHER OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES AND OTHER AGENTS. The
corporation shall have power to indemnify its other officers, employees and
other agents as set forth in the Delaware General Corporation Law or any other
applicable law. The Board of Directors shall have the power to delegate the
determination of whether indemnification shall be given to any such person,
except executive officers, to such officers or other persons as the Board of
Directors shall determine.
 
                (c) GOOD FAITH.
 
                    (1)  For purposes of any determination under this Bylaw, a
Director or executive officer shall be deemed to have acted in good faith and in
a manner he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of
the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, to have
had no reasonable cause to believe that his conduct was unlawful, if his action
is based on information, opinions, reports and statements, including financial
statements and other financial data, in each case prepared or presented by:
 
                         (i)       one or more officers or employees of the
corporation whom the Director or executive officer believed to be reliable and
competent in the matters presented;
 
 
                                      18.
<PAGE>   24
 
                         (ii)      counsel, independent accountants or other
persons as to matters which the Director or executive officer believed to be
within such person's professional competence; and
 
                         (iii)     with respect to a Director, a committee of
the Board upon which such Director does not serve, as to matters within such
Committee's designated authority, which committee the Director believes to merit
confidence; so long as, in each case, the Director or executive officer acts
without knowledge that would cause such reliance to be unwarranted.
 
                    (2)  The termination of any proceeding by judgment, order,
settlement, conviction or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent shall
not, of itself, create a presumption that the person did not act in good faith
and in a manner which he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best
interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal proceeding, that
he had reasonable cause to believe that his conduct was unlawful.
 
                    (3)  The provisions of this paragraph (c) shall not be
deemed to be exclusive or to limit in any way the circumstances in which a
person may be deemed to have met the applicable standard of conduct set forth by
the Delaware General Corporation Law.
 
                (d) EXPENSES. The corporation shall advance to any person who
was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending
or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative
or investigative, by reason of the fact that he is or was a director or
executive officer of the corporation or is or was serving at the request of the
corporation as a director or executive officer of another corporation,
partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, prior to the final
disposition of the proceeding, promptly following request therefor, all expenses
incurred by any director or executive officer in connection with such proceeding
upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of such person to repay said
amounts if it should be determined ultimately that such person is not entitled
to be indemnified under this Bylaw or otherwise.
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, unless otherwise determined pursuant to paragraph
(f) of this Bylaw, no advance shall be made by the corporation to an executive
officer of the corporation (except by reason of the fact that such executive
officer is or was a director of the corporation in which event this paragraph
shall not apply) in any action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal,
administrative or investigative, if a determination is reasonably and promptly
made (i) by the Board of Directors by a majority vote of a quorum consisting of
directors who were not parties to the proceeding, or (ii) if such quorum is not
obtainable, or, even if obtainable, a quorum of disinterested directors so
directs, by independent legal counsel in a written opinion, that the facts known
to the decision making party at the time such determination is made demonstrate
clearly and convincingly that such person acted in bad faith or in a manner that
such person did not believe to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the
corporation.
 
                (e) ENFORCEMENT. Without the necessity of entering into an
express contract all rights to indemnification and advances to directors and
executive officers under this Bylaw shall be deemed to be contractual rights and
be effective to the same extent and as if provided for in a contract between the
corporation and the director or executive officer. Any right to indemnification
or advances granted by this Bylaw to a director or executive officer shall be
 
 
                                      19.
<PAGE>   25
 
enforceable by or on behalf of the person holding such right in any court of
competent jurisdiction if (i) the claim for indemnification or advances is
denied, in whole or in part, or (ii) no disposition of such claim is made within
ninety (90) days of request therefor. The claimant in such enforcement action,
if successful in whole or in part, shall be entitled to be paid also the expense
of prosecuting his claim. In connection with any claim for indemnification, the
corporation shall be entitled to raise as a defense to any such action that the
claimant has not met the standards of conduct that make it permissible under the
Delaware General Corporation Law or any other applicable 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 proper in the circumstances
because he has met the applicable standard of conduct set forth in the Delaware
General Corporation Law or any other applicable law, 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 applicable standard of
conduct, shall be a defense to the action or create a presumption that claimant
has not met the applicable standard of conduct.
 
                (f) NON-EXCLUSIVITY OF RIGHTS. The rights conferred on any
person by this Bylaw shall not be exclusive of any other right which such person
may have or hereafter acquire under any applicable statute, provision of the
Certificate of Incorporation, Bylaws, agreement, vote of stockholders or
disinterested directors or otherwise, both as to action in his official capacity
and as to action in another capacity while holding office. The corporation is
specifically authorized to enter into individual contracts with any or all of
its directors, officers, employees or agents respecting indemnification and
advances, to the fullest extent not prohibited by the Delaware General
Corporation Law, or by any other applicable law.
 
                (g) SURVIVAL OF RIGHTS. The rights conferred on any person by
this Bylaw shall continue as to a person who has ceased to be a director,
officer, employee or other agent and shall inure to the benefit of the heirs,
executors and administrators of such a person.
 
                (h) INSURANCE. To the fullest extent permitted by the Delaware
General Corporation Law or any other applicable law, the corporation, upon
approval by the Board of Directors, may purchase insurance on behalf of any
person required or permitted to be indemnified pursuant to this Bylaw
 
                (i) AMENDMENTS. Any repeal or modification of this Bylaw shall
only be prospective and shall not affect the rights under this Bylaw in effect
at the time of the alleged occurrence of any action or omission to act that is
the cause of any proceeding against any agent of the corporation.
 
                (j) SAVING CLAUSE. If this Bylaw or any portion hereof shall
be invalidated on any ground by any court of competent jurisdiction, then the
corporation shall nevertheless indemnify each director and executive officer to
the full extent not prohibited by any applicable portion of this Bylaw that
shall not have been invalidated, or by any other applicable law. If this Section
42 shall be invalid due to the application of the indemnification provisions of
another jurisdiction, then the corporation shall indemnify each director and
executive officer to the fullest extent under any other applicable law.

CORPORATION" as referred to in this Bylaw.

                                     NOTICES
 
        SECTION 43. NOTICES.

of these Bylaws, notice is required to be given to any stockholder, it shall be
given in writing, timely and duly
 
 
                                      21.
<PAGE>   27
 
deposited in the United States mail, postage prepaid, and addressed to his last
known post office address as shown by the stock record of the corporation or its
transfer agent.
 
                    (b) NOTICE TO DIRECTORS. Any notice required to be given to
any director may be given by the method stated in subsection (a), or by
overnight delivery service, facsimile, electronic mail, telex or telegram,
except that such notice other than one which is delivered personally shall be
sent to such address as such director shall have filed in writing with the
Secretary, or, in the absence of such filing, to the last known post office
address of such Director.
 
                    (c) AFFIDAVIT OF MAILING. An affidavit of mailing, executed
by a duly authorized and competent employee of the corporation or its transfer
agent appointed with respect to the class of stock affected, specifying the name
and address or the names and addresses of the stockholder or stockholders, or
director or directors, to whom any such notice or notices was or were given, and
the time and method of giving the same, shall in the absence of fraud, be prima
facie evidence of the facts therein contained.
 
                    (d) TIME NOTICES DEEMED GIVEN. All notices given by mail or
by overnight delivery service, as above provided, shall be deemed to have been
given as at the time of mailing and all notices given by facsimile, telex or
telegram shall be deemed to have been given as of the sending time recorded at
time of transmission.
 
                    (e) METHODS OF NOTICE. It shall not be necessary that the
same method of giving notice be employed in respect of all directors, but one
permissible method may be employed in respect of any one or more, and any other
permissible method or methods may be employed in respect of any other or others.
 
                    (f) FAILURE TO RECEIVE NOTICE. The period or limitation of
time within which any stockholder may exercise any option or right, or enjoy any
privilege or benefit, or be required to act, or within which any director may
exercise any power or right, or enjoy any privilege, pursuant to any notice sent
him in the manner above provided, shall not be affected or extended in any
manner by the failure of such stockholder or such director to receive such
notice.
 
                    (g) NOTICE TO PERSON WITH WHOM COMMUNICATION IS UNLAWFUL.
Whenever notice is required to be given, under any provision of law or of the
Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws of the corporation, to any person with
whom communication is unlawful, the giving of such notice to such person shall
not be required and there shall be no duty to apply to any governmental
authority or agency for a license or permit to give such notice to such person.
Any action or meeting which shall be taken or held without notice to any such
person with whom communication is unlawful shall have the same force and effect
as if such notice had been duly given. In the event that the action taken by the
corporation is such as to require the filing of a certificate under any
provision of the Delaware General Corporation Law, the certificate shall state,
if such is the fact and if notice is required, that notice was given to all
persons entitled to receive notice except such persons with whom communication
is unlawful.
 
                    (h) NOTICE TO PERSON WITH UNDELIVERABLE ADDRESS. Whenever
notice is required to be given, under any provision of law or the Certificate of

meeting to such person during the period between such two consecutive annual
meetings, or (ii) all, and at least two, payments (if sent by first class mail)
of dividends or interest on securities during a twelve month period, have been
mailed addressed to such person at his address as shown on the records of the
corporation and have been returned undeliverable, the giving of such notice to
such person shall not be required. Any action or meeting which shall be taken or
held without notice to such person shall have the same force and effect as if
such notice had been duly given. If any such person shall deliver to the
corporation a written notice setting forth his then current address, the
requirement that notice be given to such person shall be reinstated. In the
event that the action taken by the corporation is such as to require the filing
of a certificate under any provision of the Delaware General Corporation Law,
the certificate need not state that notice was not given to persons to whom
notice was not required to be given pursuant to this paragraph.

common law or under any statute.
