A.

 

From the effective date of this Certificate of Amendment until the election of directors at the 2010 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, pursuant to Section 141(d) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, the Board of Directors shall be divided into three classes of directors, Class I, Class II and Class III (each class as nearly equal in number as possible), with the directors in Class I having a term expiring at the 2011 Annual Meeting, the directors in Class II having a term expiring at the 2012 Annual Meeting and the directors in Class III having a term expiring at the 2010 Annual Meeting.

D.

 

From and after the election of directors at the 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, the Board shall cease to be classified as provided in Section 141(d) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, and the directors elected at the 2012 Annual Meeting (and each Annual Meeting thereafter) shall be elected for a term expiring at the next Annual Meeting.

Newly created directorships resulting from any increase in the number of directors or any vacancy on the Board of Directors resulting from death, resignation, disqualification, removal or other cause shall be filled solely by the affirmative vote of a majority of the remaining directors then in office, even though less than a quorum of the Board of Directors, or by a sole remaining director. Any director elected in accordance with the preceding sentence shall hold office (a) if, at the time of such director’s election, the Board of Directors is classified pursuant to Article SEVENTH of this Restated Certificate of Incorporation, for the remainder of the full term of the class of directors in which the new directorship or vacancy was created or (b) if, at the time of such director’s election, the Board of Directors has ceased to be classified pursuant to Article SEVENTH, Section 1(d) of this Restated Certificate of Incorporation, for a term expiring at the next Annual Meeting of Stockholders, and in each case until such director’s successor shall have been duly elected and qualified. No decrease in the number of directors constituting the Board of Directors shall shorten the term of any incumbent director.

 

3.

 

Subject to the special right, if any, of the holders of any series of Preferred Stock or any other class or series of stock to elect directors, (a) prior to the time at which the Board ceases to be classified pursuant to Article SEVENTH, Section 1(d) of this Restated Certificate of Incorporation, directors may be removed only for cause and (b) from and after the time at which the Board ceases to be classified pursuant to Article SEVENTH, Section 1(d) of this Restated Certificate of Incorporation, any director or the entire Board may be removed with or without cause, provided that any removal pursuant to clause (a) or (b) shall require the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the voting power of the then outstanding shares of capital stock of the Corporation entitled to vote generally in the election of directors.

     

EIGHTH. No director shall be liable to the Corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, provided that this provision shall not eliminate or limit the liability of a director (i) for any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to the Corporation or its stockholders, (ii) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) under Section 174 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware or (iv) for any transaction from which the director derived an improper benefit.

2.

 

The provisions of Section 1 of this Article shall not be applicable to any particular Business Combination, and such Business Combination shall require only such affirmative vote, if any, as is required by law or by any other provision of this Restated Certificate of Incorporation or the By-Laws of the Corporation, if all of the conditions specified in either of the following Paragraphs A or B are met or, in the case of a Business Combination not involving the payment of consideration to the holders of the Corporation’s outstanding Capital Stock (as hereinafter defined), if the condition specified in the following Paragraph A is met.

The Business Combination shall have been approved, either specifically or as a transaction which is within a category of generically approved

 

 

 

transactions, by a majority of the Continuing Directors (as hereinafter defined).

(ii)

 

the Fair Market Value per share of such class or series of Capital Stock on the Announcement Date or on the date on which the Interested Stockholder became an Interested Stockholder (the “Determination Date”), whichever is higher, as adjusted for any subsequent stock split, stock dividend, subdivision, combination or reclassification with respect to such class or series of Capital Stock; and

 

 

(iii)

 

the highest preferential amount per share, if any, to which the holders of shares of such class or series of Capital Stock would be entitled in the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Corporation regardless of whether the Business Combination to be consummated constitutes such an event.

The provisions of this Paragraph B.(l) shall be required to be met with respect to every class or series of outstanding Capital Stock, whether or not the Interested Stockholder has previously acquired  beneficial ownership of any shares of a particular class or series of Capital Stock.

 

(2)

 

The consideration to be received by holders of a particular class or series of outstanding Capital Stock shall be in cash or in the same form as previously has been paid by or on behalf of the Interested Stockholder in connection with its direct or indirect acquisition of beneficial ownership of shares of such class or series of Capital Stock. If the consideration so paid for shares of any class or series of Capital Stock varied as to form, the form of consideration for such class or series of Capital Stock shall be either cash or the form used to acquire beneficial ownership of the largest number of shares of such class or series of Capital Stock previously acquired by the Interested Stockholder.

(4)

 

A proxy or information statement describing the proposed Business Combination and complying with the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Act”) and the rules and regulations thereunder (or any subsequent provisions replacing such Act, rules or regulations) shall be mailed to all stockholders

 

 

of the Corporation at least 30 days prior to the consummation of such Business Combination (whether or not such proxy or information statement is required to be mailed pursuant to such Act or subsequent provisions).

In any election of directors of the Corporation on or after the date on which any 30% Stockholder (as hereinafter defined) becomes a 30% Stockholder, and until such time as no 30% Stockholder exists, there shall be cumulative voting for election of directors so that any holder of shares of Voting Stock entitled to vote in such election shall be entitled to as many votes as shall equal the number of directors to be elected multiplied by the number of votes to which such stockholder’s shares would be entitled except for the provisions of this Section 3 and such stockholder may cast all of such votes for a single director, or distribute such votes among as many candidates as such stockholder sees fit. In any such election of directors, one or more candidates for the Board of Directors may be nominated by a majority of the Continuing Directors. With respect to any candidates nominated by a majority of the Continuing Directors or by any person who is the beneficial owner of shares of Voting Stock having a Fair Market Value of $100,000 or more, there shall be included in any proxy statement or other communication with respect to such election to be sent to holders of shares of Voting Stock by the Corporation during the period in which there is a 3m Stockholder, at the expense of the Corporation, descriptions and other statements of or with respect to such candidates submitted by them or on their behalf, which shall receive equal space, coverage and treatment as is received by candidates nominated by the Board of Directors or management of the Corporation.
