Section 4.                                            Advance Notice Procedures.

 

(a)                                  Advance Notice of Stockholder Business.

 

At an annual meeting of the stockholders, only such business shall be conducted as shall have been properly brought before the meeting. To be properly brought before an annual meeting, business must be brought:  (A) by or at the direction of the Board, (B) pursuant to the Corporation’s proxy materials with respect to such meeting, or (C) by a stockholder of the Corporation who (1) is a stockholder of record at the time of the giving of the notice provided for in these bylaws and on the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to vote at the annual meeting and (2) has timely complied in proper written form with the notice procedures set forth in this Section 4(a). In addition, for business to be properly brought before an annual meeting by a stockholder, such business must be a proper matter for stockholder action pursuant to these bylaws and applicable law.  For the avoidance of doubt, clause (C) above shall be the exclusive means for a stockholder to bring business (other than business included in the Corporation’s proxy materials pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “1934 Act”)) before an annual meeting of stockholders.

 

(i)                                     To comply with clause (C) of Section 4(a), a stockholder’s notice must set forth all information required under Section 4(a) and must be timely received by the secretary of the Corporation.  To be timely, a stockholder’s notice must be received by the secretary at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not later than the 45th day nor earlier than the 75th day before the one-year anniversary of the date on which the Corporation first mailed its proxy materials or a notice of availability of proxy materials (whichever is earlier) for the preceding year’s annual meeting (the “Mailing Anniversary”); provided, however, that in the event that no annual meeting was held in the previous year or if the date of the annual meeting is advanced more than 30 days prior to or delayed by more than 60 days after the one-year anniversary of the date of the previous year’s annual meeting, then notice by the stockholder to be timely must be so received by the secretary not earlier than the close of business on the 120th day prior to such annual meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of (i) the 90th day prior to such annual meeting, or (ii) the tenth day following the day on which Public Announcement (as defined below) of the date of such annual meeting is first made. In no event shall any adjournment or postponement of an annual meeting or the announcement thereof commence a new time period for the giving of a stockholder’s notice as described in this Section 4(a)(i). For purposes of this Section 4, “Public Announcement” shall mean disclosure in a press release reported by the Dow Jones News Service, Associated Press or a comparable national news service or in a document publicly filed by the Corporation with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) pursuant to Section 13, 14 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “1934 Act”).

 

Notwithstanding anything in the second sentence of the preceding paragraph of this Section 4 to the contrary, in the event that the number of directors to be elected to the Board is increased and no Public Announcement naming all of the nominees for director or specifying the size of the increased Board is made by the Corporation at least 55 days prior to the Mailing Anniversary, the Stockholder Notice shall 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 10th day following the day on which such Public Announcement is first made by the Corporation.

 

(ii)                                  To be in proper written form, a stockholder’s notice to the secretary shall set forth as to each matter of business the stockholder intends to bring before the annual meeting: (1) a brief description of the business intended to be brought before the annual meeting and the reasons for conducting such business at the annual meeting, (2) the name and address, as they appear on the Corporation’s books, of the stockholder proposing such business and any Stockholder Associated Person (as defined below), (3) the class and number of shares of the Corporation that are held of record or are beneficially owned by the stockholder or any Stockholder Associated Person and any derivative positions held or beneficially held by the stockholder or any Stockholder Associated Person, (4) whether and the extent to which any hedging or other transaction or series of transactions has been entered into by or on behalf of such stockholder or any Stockholder Associated Person with respect to any securities of the Corporation, or whether any other agreement, arrangement or understanding (including any short position or any borrowing or lending of shares) has been made, the effect or intent of which is to mitigate loss to or manage risk or benefit from share price changes for, or to increase or decrease the voting power of, such stockholder or any Stockholder Associated Person with respect to any securities of the Corporation, (5) any material interest of the stockholder or any Stockholder Associated Person in such business and (6) a statement whether either such stockholder or any Stockholder Associated Person will deliver 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 the proposal (such statement, a “Business Solicitation Statement”).  In addition, to be in proper written form, a stockholder’s notice to the secretary shall be supplemented not later than 10 days following the record date to disclose the information contained in clauses (3) and (4) above as of the record date.  For purposes of this Section 4, a “Stockholder Associated Person” of any stockholder shall mean (i) any beneficial owner on whose behalf the stockholder is proposing such business or, for purposes of Sections 4(b) and 4(d), proposing a director nomination and (ii) any person controlling, directly or indirectly, or acting in concert with, such stockholder or beneficial owner.

 

(iii)                               Without exception, no business shall be conducted at any annual meeting except in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 4(a) and, if applicable, Section 4(b).  In addition, business may not be brought before the meeting if a stockholder or Stockholder Associated Person, as applicable, takes action contrary to the representations made in the Business Solicitation Statement applicable to such business.  The chairperson of the annual meeting shall, if the facts warrant, determine and declare at the annual meeting that business was not properly brought before the annual meeting and in accordance with the provisions of this Section 4(a), and, if the chairperson should so determine, he or she shall so declare at the annual meeting that any such business not properly brought before the annual meeting shall not be transacted.

 

(b)                                 Advance Notice of Director Nominations.

 

Notwithstanding anything in these bylaws to the contrary, only persons who are nominated in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 4(b) shall be eligible for election or re-election as directors at an annual meeting of stockholders. Nominations of persons for election to the board of directors of the Corporation may be made at an annual meeting of stockholders only (A) by or at the direction of the Board or (B) by a stockholder of the Corporation who (1) was a stockholder of record at the time of the giving of the notice provided for in these bylaws and on the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to vote at the annual meeting and (2) has complied with the notice procedures set forth in this Section  4(b).  In addition to any other applicable requirements, for a nomination to be made by a stockholder, the stockholder must have given timely notice thereof in proper written form to the secretary of the Corporation.

 

(i)                                     To comply with clause (B) of Section 4(b), a nomination to be made by a stockholder must set forth all information required under this Section 4(b) and must be received by the secretary of the Corporation at the principal executive offices of the Corporation at the time and in accordance with the final three sentences of Section 4(a)(i) above.

(2)                                  as to such stockholder giving notice, (A) the information required to be provided pursuant to clauses 2 through 5 of Section 4(a)(ii) above (except that the references to “business” in such clauses shall instead refer to nominations of directors for purposes of this paragraph), and (B) a statement whether either such stockholder or Stockholder Associated Person will deliver a proxy statement and form of proxy to holders of a number of the Corporation’s voting shares reasonably believed by such stockholder or Stockholder Associated Person to be necessary to elect such nominee(s) (such statement, a “Nominee Solicitation Statement”).

 

(iii)                               At the request of the board of directors, any person nominated by a stockholder for election as a director shall furnish to the secretary of the Corporation such other information as may reasonably be required by the Corporation to determine the eligibility of such proposed nominee to serve as an independent director of the Corporation or that could be material to a reasonable stockholder’s understanding of the independence, or lack thereof, of such nominee; in the absence of the furnishing of such information if requested, such stockholder’s nomination shall not be considered in proper form pursuant to this Section 4(b).

 

(iv)                              Without exception, no person shall be eligible for election or re-election as a director of the Corporation at an annual meeting of stockholders unless nominated in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 4(b).  In addition, a nominee shall not be eligible for election or re-election if a stockholder or Stockholder Associated Person, as applicable, takes action contrary to the representations made in the Nominee Solicitation Statement applicable to such nominee.  The chairperson of the annual meeting shall, if the facts warrant, determine and declare at the annual meeting that a nomination was not made in accordance with the procedures prescribed by these bylaws, and if the chairperson should so determine, he or she shall so declare at the annual meeting, and the defective nomination shall be disregarded.

Section 5.                                            Waiver of Notice.  Notice of any annual or special meeting of stockholders need not be given to any stockholder entitled to vote at such meeting who waives notice, either in writing or by electronic transmission, whether before or after the meeting. Attendance of a stockholder at a meeting, in person or by proxy, shall constitute a waiver of notice of such meeting, except when the stockholder attends a meeting for the express purpose of objecting, at the beginning of the meeting, to the transaction of any business because the meeting is not lawfully convened or called.  Neither the business to be transacted at, nor the purpose of, any regular or special meeting need be specified in any written waiver of notice unless so required by the certificate of incorporation or these bylaws.

 

Section 6.                                            Conduct of Business.  The chairman of any meeting of stockholders shall determine the order of business and the procedure at the meeting, including such regulation of the manner of voting and the conduct of discussion as seem to him or her in order.  The chairman shall have the power to adjourn the meeting to another place, if any, date and time.  The date and time of the opening and closing of the polls for each matter upon which the stockholders will vote at the meeting shall be announced at the meeting.

Section 8.                                            Quorum.  Except as otherwise provided by law or the certificate of incorporation, whenever a class of stock of the Corporation is entitled to vote as a separate class, or whenever classes of stock of the Corporation are entitled to vote together as a single class, on any matter brought before any meeting of the stockholders, whether annual or special, holders of a majority of the shares of stock of such class voting as a separate class, or classes voting together as a single class, as the case may be, outstanding and entitled to vote thereat, present in person or by proxy, shall constitute a quorum at any such meeting of the stockholders.

Section 11.                                      Stockholders’ Consent in Lieu of Meeting.

 

(a)                                  Any action required by the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware to be taken at any annual or special meeting of the stockholders of the Corporation, 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 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. 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.

 

(b)                                 If any stockholder (a “Proposing Stockholder”) seeks to act by written consent, the Proposing Stockholder shall, before soliciting written consent of other stockholders, request that the Board fix a record date to determine those persons eligible to act as stockholders by written consent on the matter proposed.  The request shall contain (i) the name and address of the Proposing Stockholder, (ii) a representation that the Proposing Stockholder is a stockholder of record and (iii) a description of the matter proposed for adoption by written consent.  The request shall be in writing and delivered to or mailed to and received at the principal executive offices of the Corporation.  In the event the Board does not fix a record date within ten days of receipt of said request, the record date shall be set in accordance with Article VII, Section 7 hereof.  Except as otherwise required by statute, the certificate of incorporation or these bylaws, the Board shall have the exclusive authority to set a record date with regard to actions sought or taken under this Section 11.

(f)                                    If, at the time of filling any vacancy or any newly created directorship, the directors then in office constitute less than a majority of the whole board (as constituted immediately prior to any such increase), then the Court of Chancery may, upon application of any stockholder or stockholders holding at least ten (10) percent of the total number of the shares at the time outstanding having the right to vote for such directors, summarily order an election to be held to fill any such vacancies or newly created directorships, or to replace the directors chosen by the directors then in office as aforesaid, which election shall be governed by the provisions of Section 211 of the Delaware General Corporation Law as far as applicable.

 

(g)                                 Except as otherwise required by statute, the certificate of incorporation or these bylaws, the shareholders shall have no power to fill vacancies or newly created directorships on the Board.

(a)                                  the Corporation is unable to deliver by electronic transmission two consecutive notices given by the Corporation in accordance with such consent; and

 

(b)                                 such inability becomes known to the secretary or an assistant secretary of the Corporation or to the transfer agent, or other person responsible for the giving of notice.  However, the inadvertent failure to treat such inability as a revocation shall not invalidate any meeting or other action.
