The authority of the Board with respect to each series of a class shall include, but not be limited to, determination of the following:

After dividends on the Series A 3% Preferred Stock shall have been paid at the rate herein provided, and upon all subsequent series of preferred stock issued as provided in certificates which may hereafter be filed, at the rate or rates therein provided, but not prior thereto, the common stock shall be entitled to receive all sums which may be distributed as dividends in excess of said dividends on the preferred stock.

Upon any liquidation or distribution of capital assets the preferred stock shall be entitled to receive $100.00 per share, and in addition thereto a sum equal to all unpaid dividends accumulated thereon, before any distribution shall be made to the common stock, and after the payment of $100.00 per share upon all the preferred stock of all series outstanding plus such accumulated dividends, the common stock shall be entitled to receive all the remainder of such capital assets so distributed.

No holder of said Series A 3% Preferred Stock outstanding from time to time shall, as such holder, have any preemptive right in, or right to purchase or subscribe for any additional shares of the preferred stock, or of the common stock, or of any bonds or debentures convertible into either of such stocks.

(f) Paragraph SEVENTH, which designates the first series of Class B preferred stock and sets forth the relative rights, preferences and limitations, is amended to eliminate the voting rights of the Class B preferred stock, renumbered and amended to read in its entirety as follows:

 

“FIFTH: The first series of authorized Class B preferred stock shall be designated the Series B-1 8.48% Preferred Stock of the corporation and shall be hereinafter referred to as the 8.48% Preferred Stock. The series of 8.48% Preferred Stock shall number two hundred thousand (200,000) shares. Such shares shall be issued at a time or times determined by the Board of Directors of the corporation.

Accumulated dividends on the 8.48% Preferred Stock shall not bear interest.

B. The 8.48% Preferred Stock shall not be subject to redemption. Shares of the 8.48% Preferred Stock which have been repurchased or have been exchanged for shares of any other series or class and thereafter have been canceled, shall have the status of authorized but unissued 8.48% Preferred Stock and may be reissued as shares of the series of which they were originally a part or as shares of any other or new series of such class.

C. In the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the corporation, the holders of the 8.48% Preferred Stock and holders of any subsequent series of Class B Preferred Stock shall be entitled, before any distribution shall be made to the holder of any junior stock, but after payment in full or moneys set apart for such purposes to holders of all outstanding shares of Class A Preferred Stock, to be paid out of the assets of the corporation an amount equal to $100.00 per share, plus an amount equal to the dividends accrued and unpaid thereon to the date of final distribution to such holders, whether or not earned or declared.

After the amounts payable on voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding-up to the holders of 8.48% Preferred Stock and subsequent series of Class B Preferred Stock have been paid in full, or moneys have been set apart for such purpose, the holders of 8.48% Preferred Stock shall not be entitled to participate further in the distribution of the assets of the corporation, and the remaining assets of the corporation available for distribution shall belong to and be distributed among the holders of junior stock. Nothing herein contained shall be construed to prohibit the retirement of 8.48% Preferred Stock by purchase, and neither the purchase of 8.48% Preferred Stock, nor a merger, consolidation, arrangement or reorganization of the corporation, nor a sale or transfer of the property or business of the corporation as an entirety, shall be considered a liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the corporation within the meaning herein contemplated.  

D. Owners of Series B-1 8.48% Preferred Stock shall have no voting rights, except as may be required by law.

Subject to the foregoing restrictions, such dividends (payable in cash, stock or otherwise) as may be determined by the Board of Directors of the corporation may be declared and paid on any junior stock from time to time out of any funds of the corporation legally available therefor, and the corporation may at any time and from time to time make a distribution of any class or series of stock of the corporation to the holders of any other class or series of stock without the approval or consent of the holders of the 8.48% Preferred Stock of the corporation as a class or a series.

E. The term “junior stock” when used in the Certificate of Incorporation of the corporation shall mean the Common Stock and any other stock of the corporation, now or hereafter authorized, over which the 8.48% Preferred Stock has preference or priority either in the payment of dividends or in the distribution of assets upon liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the corporation.

F. Shares of the 8.48% Preferred Stock shall not have preemptive rights.”

(l) A new paragraph SIXTH shall be added eliminating the preemptive rights of the holders of the common stock and which shall read in its entirety as follows:

 

“SIXTH: No holder of shares of common stock of the corporation shall have any preferential or preemptive right to subscribe for, purchase or receive any shares of the corporation of any class, now or hereafter authorized, or any options or warrants for such shares, or any rights to subscribe to or purchase such shares, or any securities convertible into or exchangeable for such shares, which may at any time be issued, sold or offered for sale by the corporation.”

(m) A new paragraph SEVENTH shall be added limiting the liability of directors and which shall read in its entirety as follows:

 

“SEVENTH: No director of the corporation shall be held personally liable to the corporation or its shareholders for damages for any breach of duty in his or her capacity as a director unless a judgment or other final adjudication adverse to him or her establishes that (1) his or her acts or omissions were in bad faith or involved intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, or (2) he or she personally gained in fact a financial profit or other advantage to which he or she was not legally entitled, or (3) his or her acts violated Section 719 of the Business Corporation Law. Any repeal of this Paragraph, or any amendment of this Paragraph insofar as it would in any way enlarge the liability of any director of the corporation, shall be ineffective with respect to any acts or omissions occurring prior to the date of such repeal or amendment.”
