INDEMNIFICATION

SECTION 8.01. Indemnification of Directors and Officers. Subject to Section 8.05, any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to or is involved in any action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, whether by or in the right of the corporation or otherwise, by reason of the fact that he or she or a person of whom he or she is the legal representative, is or was a director or officer of the Corporation, or while serving in such capacity is or was an officer, employee or agent of the Corporation or is or was serving at the request of the Corporation or for its benefit as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, or as its representative in a partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, shall be indemnified and held harmless to the fullest extent legally permissible under and pursuant to any procedure specified in or pursuant to the DGCL, as amended from time to time, from and against any and all expenses, liabilities and losses (including without limitation attorney’s fees, judgments, fines and amounts paid or to be paid in settlement) actually and reasonably incurred or suffered by such person in connection therewith. The Board of Directors shall take all such actions as may be necessary and appropriate to authorize the Corporation to pay the indemnification required by these Bylaws, including without limitation, to the extent necessary, making a good faith evaluation of the manner in which the claimant for indemnity acted and of the reasonable amount of indemnity

due him or her, and making in good faith any other determination required by the DGCL for such indemnification, or, in cases where the full Board of Directors may not make such determination under the DGCL, submitting the matter for determination in good faith by a committee of directors, independent legal counsel, the stockholders or such other persons or bodies as may make any such required determination. The termination of any action, suit or 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 meet the standards required under the DGCL in order to be entitled or permitted to receive such indemnification. This right to indemnification shall be enforceable against the Corporation as a contract right, and any person entitled to such indemnification shall also be entitled to reimbursement by the Corporation of reasonable costs and expense, including attorneys’ fees, incurred in obtaining such required indemnification or any advancement of expenses required by Section 8.02.

SECTION 8.02. Advancement of Expenses. Subject to Section 8.05, expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by a current or former director or executive officer in defending any civil, criminal, administrative or investigative action, suit or proceeding with respect to which indemnification may be provided under Section 8.01 above shall be paid or reimbursed 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 director or executive officer to repay such amount if it shall ultimately be determined that such person is not entitled to be indemnified by the Corporation. Such expenses (including attorneys’ fees) may be so paid or reimbursed upon such additional terms and conditions, if any, as the Board of Directors in good faith deems reasonable and appropriate, consistent with its obligation to promptly pay or reimburse all such expenses actually and reasonably incurred. For purposes of this Section 8.02, “executive officer” has the meaning set forth in Rule 3b-7 under the Exchange Act.

SECTION 8.03. Nonexclusivity; Indemnification of Other Personnel. The indemnification and advancement of expenses provided by or granted pursuant to this Article 8 shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which those seeking indemnification or advancement of expenses are or at any time may be entitled under the DGCL, the Certificate of Incorporation, any agreement, vote of stockholders or disinterested directors or otherwise except that to the extent that the Certificate of Incorporation provides that indemnification or advancement of expenses is subject to these Bylaws these Bylaws shall govern. The provisions of this Article 8 shall not be deemed to preclude the indemnification or advancement of expenses of any person who is not specified in Section 8.01 or 8.02, as applicable, but whom the Corporation has the power or obligation to indemnify under the provisions of the DGCL, or otherwise, and the Board of Directors shall have authority to provide such indemnification and advancement of expenses to such other personnel as it determines is permitted or required by the DGCL.

SECTION 8.04. Certain Definitions. For purposes of this Article 8, (i) references to “other enterprises” shall include employee benefit plans, (ii) references to “fines” shall include any excise taxes assessed on a person with respect to any employee benefit plan, (iii) references to “serving at the request of the Corporation” shall include any service as a director, officer, employee or agent of the Corporation which imposes duties on, or involves services by, such director, officer, employee or agent with respect to an employee benefit plan, its participants or beneficiaries, and (iv) a person who acted in good faith and in a manner such person reasonably believed to be in the interest of the participants and beneficiaries of an employee benefit plan shall be deemed to have acted in a manner not opposed to the best interests of the Corporation.

SECTION 8.05. Limitation on Indemnification and Advancement of Expenses. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Article 8 to the contrary, except for any required reimbursement of expenses in proceedings to enforce such person’s rights to indemnification or advancement of expenses as provided in Section 8.01, the Corporation shall not be obligated to indemnify, or advance expenses to, any person in connection with (i) a proceeding (or part thereof) initiated by such person unless such proceeding (or part thereof) was authorized by the Board of Directors, or (ii) proceedings or claims involving the enforcement of any employment, severance, non-competition, compensation, or other plan or agreement with or of the Corporation or any of its affiliates to which such person may be a party, or of which such person may be a beneficiary, or (iii) any proceeding with respect to which final judgment is rendered against such person for payment or an accounting of profits arising from the purchase or sale by such person of securities in violation of Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act, any similar successor statute, or similar provisions of state statutory law or common law. For the avoidance of doubt, the term “officer” when used in this Article 8 or in the Certificate of Incorporation does not include a person who serves or has served only as an assistant officer, and this Article 8 does not obligate the Company to indemnify or advance expenses to persons who serve or have served only as assistant officers.

SECTION 8.06. Insurance. The Board of Directors may cause the Corporation to purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the Corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the Corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or as its representative in a partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise against any liability asserted against such person and incurred in any such capacity, or arising out of such status, whether or not the Corporation would have the power to indemnify such person against such liability.

SECTION 8.07. Additional Indemnification. The Board of Directors may from time to time adopt further Bylaws with respect to indemnification, may amend these Bylaws and such Bylaws to provide at all times the fullest indemnification permitted by the DGCL, as amended from time to time, and may authorize additional indemnification by resolution, indemnification contracts or otherwise to the extent permitted by the DGCL.

SECTION 8.08. No Retroactive Repeal or Modification. The right of any current or former director or officer to indemnification and advancement of expenses under this Article 8 is provided as a contract right in consideration of and as an inducement for such director’s or officer’s service as such, and shall fully vest at the time such director or officer first assumes his or her position with the Corporation. Any repeal or modification of the foregoing provisions granting indemnification or advancement rights shall be prospective only and shall not adversely affect any right or protection of a current or former director or officer of the Corporation with respect to any acts, omissions or status of such person occurring prior to such repeal or modification.

ARTICLE 9

AMENDMENTS

Except as otherwise provided by statute or the Certificate of Incorporation, these Bylaws may be amended by the affirmative vote of the holders of at least a majority of the voting power of the then outstanding Voting Stock, voting together as a single class at any annual or special meeting of the stockholders, provided that notice of intention to amend shall have been contained in the notice of the meeting.

The Board of Directors by a majority vote of the whole Board of Directors at any meeting may amend these Bylaws, including Bylaws adopted by the stockholders, but the stockholders may, except as otherwise provided by statute or the Certificate of Incorporation, from time to time specify particular provisions of the Bylaws which shall not be amended by the Board of Directors.
