of this corporation pursuant to Section 245 of the General Corporation Law of
the State of Delaware. This Restated Certificate of Incorporation only
restates and integrates and does not amend the corporation's certificate of
incorporation and other certificates and instruments filed with the Secretary
of State of Delaware pursuant to Section 104 of the General Corporation Law
of the State of Delaware, and there is no discrepancy between the provisions
of such certificate of incorporation, certificates and instruments and this
Restated Certificate of Incorporation.

THIRD. The purpose for which the Corporation is formed is to engage in
any lawful act or activity for which corporations may be organized under the
General Corporation Law of Delaware.

FOURTH. The aggregate number of shares which the Corporation shall have
authority to issue is 1,640,000,000, of which 40,000,000 shares shall be
Preferred Stock having a par value of $1 per share and 1,600,000,000 shares
shall be Common Stock having a par value of $1 per share. A description of
each of such classes of stock and the designation and the powers, preferences
and rights, and the qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof, of
each class of stock of the Corporation which are fixed by this Restated
Certificate of Incorporation, and the express grant of authority to the Board
of Directors to fix by resolution or resolutions the designations and the
powers, preferences and rights of each other class, and the qualifications,
limitations or restrictions thereof, are as follows:

1. The Board of Directors shall have authority, by resolution or
resolutions, at any time and from time to time to divide and establish any or
all of the unissued shares of Preferred Stock not then allocated to any
series of Preferred Stock into one or more series, and, without limiting the
generality of the foregoing, to fix and determine the designation of each
such series, the number of shares which shall constitute such series and the
following relative rights and preferences of the shares of each series so
established:


(a) the annual dividend rate payable on shares of such series, the
time of payment thereof, whether such dividends shall be cumulative or
non-cumulative, and the date or dates from which any cumulative dividends
shall commence to accrue;

(b) the price or prices at which and the terms and conditions, if
any, on which shares of such series may be redeemed;

(c) the amounts payable upon shares of such series in the event of
the voluntary or involuntary dissolution, liquidation or winding-up of the
affairs of the Corporation;

(d) the sinking fund provisions, if any, for the redemption or
purchase of shares of such series;

(e) the extent of the voting powers, if any, of the shares of such
series;

(f) the terms and conditions, if any, on which shares of such
series may be converted into shares of stock of the Corporation of any other
class or classes or into shares of any other series of the same or any other
class or classes;

(g) whether, and if so the extent to which, shares of such series
may participate with the Common Stock in any dividends in excess of the
preferential dividend fixed for shares of such series or in any distribution
of the assets of the Corporation, upon a liquidation, dissolution or
winding-up thereof, in excess of the preferential amount fixed for shares of
such series; and

(h) any other designations, preferences and relative,
participating, optional or other special rights, and qualifications,
limitations or restrictions thereof, of shares of such series not fixed and
determined by law or in this Restated Certificate of Incorporation.

2. Each series of Preferred Stock shall be so designated as to
distinguish the shares thereof from the shares of all other series.
Different series of Preferred Stock shall not be considered to constitute
different classes of shares for the purpose of voting by classes except as
otherwise fixed by the Board of Directors with respect to any series at the
time of the creation thereof.

3. So long as any shares of Preferred Stock are outstanding, the
Corporation shall not declare and pay or set apart for payment any dividends
(other than dividends payable in Common Stock or other stock of the
Corporation ranking junior to the Preferred Stock as to dividends) or make
any other distribution on such junior stock, if at the time of making such
declaration, payment or distribution the Corporation shall be in default with
respect to any dividend payable on, or any obligation to retire, shares of
Preferred Stock.

2

4. Subject to such limitations, if any, as may be contained in the
resolution or resolutions providing for the issue of Preferred Stock of any
series adopted by the Board of Directors, shares of Preferred Stock
purchased, redeemed or otherwise acquired by the Corporation (excepting
shares of such stock acquired on the conversion or exchange thereof into or
for other shares of the Corporation) (a) shall, upon the filing by the
Corporation of a Certificate pursuant to Delaware law reducing its capital in
respect of such shares, have the status of authorized and unissued shares of
Preferred Stock and may be reissued by the Corporation at any time as shares
of any series of Preferred Stock and (b) shall, unless and until a
certificate with respect thereto is filed as aforesaid, constitute treasury
stock; and shares of Preferred Stock acquired on the conversion or exchange
thereof into or for other shares of the Corporation shall, after such
conversion or exchange, have the status of authorized and unissued shares of
Preferred Stock and may be reissued by the Corporation at any time as shares
of any series of Preferred Stock.

5. Subject to the provisions of any applicable law or the By-Laws of the
Corporation as from time to time amended with respect to the closing of the
transfer books or the fixing of a record date for the determination of
stockholders entitled to vote, and except as otherwise provided by law or in
resolutions of the Board of Directors establishing any series of Preferred
Stock pursuant to this Article, the holders of outstanding shares of Common
Stock of the Corporation shall exclusively possess the voting power for the
election of directors and for all other purposes, each holder of record of
shares of Common Stock of the Corporation being entitled to one vote for each
share of such stock standing in such holder's name on the books of the
Corporation.

FIFTH. The business and affairs of the Corporation shall be managed by
or under the direction of a Board of Directors consisting of not less than
three nor
more than twenty-one directors, the exact number of directors to be
determined from time to time by resolution adopted by the affirmative vote of
a majority of the entire Board of Directors. The directors shall be divided
into three groups, designated Group I, Group II and Group III. Each group of
directors shall consist, as nearly as may be possible, of one-third of the
total number of directors constituting the entire Board of Directors and
shall serve for a three-year term.

At each annual meeting of shareholders, successors to the group of
directors whose term expires at that annual meeting shall be elected for a
three-year term. If the number of directors is changed, any increase or
decrease shall be apportioned among the groups so as to maintain the number
of directors in each group as nearly equal as possible, and any additional
director of any group elected to fill a vacancy resulting from an increase in
such group shall hold office for a term that shall coincide with the
remaining term of that group, but in no case will a decrease in the number of
directors shorten the term of any incumbent director.

3

A director shall hold office until the annual meeting for the year in
which his or her term expires and until his or her successor shall be elected
and shall qualify, subject, however, to prior death, resignation, retirement,
disqualification or removal from office. Any vacancy on the Board of
Directors that results from an increase in the number of directors may be
filled by a majority of the Board of Directors then in office, provided that
a quorum is present, and any other vacancy occurring in the Board of
Directors may be filled by a majority of the directors then in office, even
if less than a quorum, or by a sole remaining director. Any director elected
to fill a vacancy not resulting from an increase in the number of directors
shall have the same remaining term as that of his or her predecessor.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, whenever the holders of any one or more
classes or series of preferred or preference stock issued by the Corporation
shall have the right, voting separately by class or series, to elect
directors at an annual or special meeting of shareholders, the election, term
of office, filling of vacancies and other features of such directorships
shall be governed by the terms of this Restated Certificate of Incorporation
applicable thereto.

SIXTH. The Board of Directors of the Corporation shall have the power,
without the assent or vote of the stockholders, to make By-Laws for the
Corporation, and to amend, alter or repeal the same.

SEVENTH. The Corporation reserves the right to amend, alter, change or
repeal any provisions contained in this Restated Certificate of Incorporation
in the manner now or hereafter prescribed by the statues of the State of
Delaware and this Restated Certificate of Incorporation, and all rights
herein conferred on officers, directors and stockholders are expressly to
this reservation.

EIGHTH. A. In addition to any affirmative vote required by law, any
other provision of this Restated Certificate of Incorporation, the By-laws of
the Corporation or otherwise, and except as otherwise expressly provided in
Sections B or C of this Article EIGHTH, a Business Transaction with or a
Stock Repurchase from, or proposed by or on behalf of, an Interested
Shareholder or an Affiliate or Associate of an Interested Shareholder shall
require the approval by not less than a majority vote of the holders of all
of the Corporation's outstanding Voting Stock, voting together as a single
class, which is beneficially owned by persons other than such Interested
Shareholder and its Affiliates and Associates. Such affirmative vote shall be
required notwithstanding the fact that no vote may otherwise be required, or
that a lesser percentage or separate class vote may be required, by law, any
other provision of this Restated Certificate of Incorporation, the By-laws of
the Corporation or otherwise.

B. The provisions of Section A of this Article EIGHTH shall not be
applicable to any Business Transaction involving an Interested Shareholder or
an Affiliate or Associate of an Interested Shareholder, and such Business
Transaction shall require only such affirmative vote, if any, as is required
by law, any other provision of this Restated Certificate of Incorporation,
the By-laws of the Corporation or otherwise, if all of the conditions
specified in either of the following Paragraphs 1 or 2 are met:

4

1. The Business Transaction shall have been approved (or shall have
been effected in accordance with a written agreement approved) by a majority
of the Disinterested Directors, whether such approval is given prior to or
subsequent to the acquisition of beneficial ownership of the Voting Stock
that caused such Interested Shareholder to become an Interested Shareholder.
A Business Transaction with an Interested Shareholder or an Affiliate or an
Associate of an Interested Shareholder shall be deemed to have been approved
by a majority of the Disinterested Directors if such Business Transaction
either (i) was expressly approved (or the agreement pursuant to which it was
effected was expressly approved) by a majority of Disinterested Directors,
or (ii) is within a category of Business Transactions with such Interested
Shareholder or its Affiliates or Associates authorized to be entered into by
a resolution or resolutions adopted by, and not subsequently rescinded by, a
majority of Disinterested Directors.

2. The Business Transaction is a Business Combination and all of the
following conditions shall have been met:

a. The aggregate amount of cash and the Fair Market Value
as of the date of the consummation of the Business Transaction of
consideration other than cash to be received per share by holders of
the Corporation's Common Stock in such Business Transaction shall be
at least equal to the highest amount determined under clauses (i) and
(ii) below:

(i) the highest per share price (including any
brokerage commissions, transfer taxes and soliciting dealers'
fees) paid by or on behalf of such Interested Shareholder or
any Affiliate or Associate of such Interested Shareholder for
any shares of Common Stock in connection with the acquisition
by such Interested Shareholder or any such Affiliate or
Associate of beneficial ownership of shares of Common Stock
within (x) the two-year period immediately prior to the first
public announcement of the proposed Business Transaction (the
"Announcement Date"), or (y) in the transaction in which such
Interested Shareholder became an Interested Shareholder,
whichever is higher; and

(ii) the Fair Market Value per share of Common Stock
on the Announcement Date or on the date on which such
Interested Shareholder became an Interested Shareholder (the
"Determination Date"), whichever is higher.

b. The aggregate amount of cash and the Fair Market Value
as of the date of the consummation of the Business Transaction of
consideration other than cash to be received per share by holders of
shares of any class or series of outstanding Capital Stock other than
Common Stock shall be at least equal to the highest amount determined
under clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) below:

5

(i) the highest per share price (including any
brokerage commissions, transfer taxes and soliciting dealers'
fees) paid by or on behalf of such Interested Shareholder or
any Affiliate or Associate of such Interested Shareholder for
any shares of such class or series of Capital Stock in
connection with the acquisition by such Interested Shareholder
or any such Affiliate or Associate of beneficial ownership of
shares of such class or series of Capital Stock (x) Within the
two-year period immediately prior to the Announcement Date, or
(y) in the transaction in which such Interested Shareholder
became an Interested Shareholder, whichever is higher;

(ii) the Fair Market Value per share of such class or
series of Capital Stock on the Announcement Date or on the
Determination Date, whichever is higher; 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
Transaction to be consummated constitutes such an event.

The provisions of this Paragraph 2.b shall be required to be met with
respect to every class or series of outstanding Capital Stock,
whether or not such Interested Shareholder or any Affiliate or
Associate of such Interested Shareholder has previously acquired
beneficial ownership of any shares of the particular class or series
of Capital Stock.

c. 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 such
Interested Shareholder and its Affiliates and Associates in
connection with their 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 such
Interested Shareholder and its Affiliates and Associates. The prices
determined in accordance with Paragraphs 2.a and 2.b of this Section
B shall be subject to an appropriate adjustment in the event of any
stock dividend, stock split, combination of shares or similar event.

d. After the Determination Date and prior to the consummation
of such Business Transaction: (i) except as approved by a majority of
the Disinterested Directors, there shall have been no failure to
declare and pay at the regular date therefor any full quarterly
dividends (whether or not cumulative) payable in accordance with the
terms of any outstanding

6

Capital Stock; (ii) there shall have been no reduction in the annual
rate of dividends paid on the Common Stock (except as necessary to
reflect any stock split, stock dividend or subdivision of the Common
Stock), except as approved by a majority of the Disinterested
Directors; (iii) there shall have been an increase in the annual rate
of dividends paid on the Common Stock as necessary to reflect any
reclassification (including any reverse stock split),
recapitalization, reorganization or any similar transaction that has
the effect of reducing the number of outstanding shares of Common
Stock, unless the failure so to increase such annual rate is approved
by a majority of the Disinterested Directors; and (iv) neither such
Interested Shareholder nor any Affiliate or Associate of such
Interested Shareholder shall have become the beneficial owner of any
additional shares of Capital Stock except as part of the transaction
that results in such Interested Shareholder becoming an Interested
Shareholder and except in a transaction that, after giving effect
thereto, would not result in any increase in such Interested
Shareholder's or any such Affiliate's or Associate's percentage
beneficial ownership of any class or series of Capital Stock.

e. A proxy or information statement describing the proposed
Business Transaction and complying with the requirements of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the rules and regulations
thereunder (the "Act") (or any subsequent provisions replacing such
Act, rules or regulations) shall be mailed to all shareholders of the
Corporation at least 30 days prior to the consummation of such
Business Transaction (whether or not such proxy or information
statement is required to be mailed pursuant to such Act or subsequent
provisions). The proxy or information statement shall contain on the
first page thereof, in a prominent place, any statement as to the
advisability (or inadvisability) of the Business Transaction that the
Disinterested Directors, or any of them, may choose to make and, if
deemed advisable by a majority of the Disinterested Directors, the
opinion of an investment banking firm selected by a Majority of the
Disinterested Directors as to the fairness (or not) of the terms of
the Business Transaction from a financial point of view to the
holders of the outstanding shares of Capital Stock other than such
Interested Shareholder and its Affiliates or Associates, such
investment banking firm to be paid a reasonable fee for its services
by the Corporation.

C. The provisions of Section A of this Article EIGHTH shall not be
applicable to a Stock Repurchase with, or proposed by or on behalf of, an
Interested Shareholder or an Affiliate or Associate of an Interested
Shareholder, and such Stock Repurchase shall require only such affirmative
vote, if any, as is required by law, any other provision of this Restated
Certificate of Incorporation, the By-laws of the Corporation or otherwise, if
the conditions specified in either of the following Paragraphs 1 or 2 are
met:

1. The Stock Repurchase is made pursuant to a tender offer or
exchange offer for a class of Capital Stock made available on the same
basis to all holders of such class of Capital Stock.

2. The Stock Repurchase is made pursuant to an open market purchase

7

program approved by a majority of the Disinterested Directors, provided
that such repurchase is effected on the open market and is not the result
of a privately negotiated transaction.

D. For the purposes of this Article EIGHTH:

1. The term "Business Transaction" shall mean:

a. any merger or consolidation of the Corporation with, or
any sale or transfer of all or substantially all of the Corporation's
assets to, (i) any Interested Shareholder or (ii) any other

consolidation, sale, transfer, liquidation or dissolution being
referred to herein as a "Business Combination"); and

Shareholder; and

c. any reclassification of securities (including any reverse
stock split), or recapitalization of the Corporation), or any merger
or consolidation of the Corporation with any Subsidiary, or any other
transaction (whether or not with or otherwise involving an Interested
Shareholder) that has the effect, directly or indirectly, of
increasing the percentage beneficial ownership of any class or series
of Capital Stock held by, or the voting power with respect to the
Corporation of, any Interested Shareholder or any Affiliate or
Associate of any Interested Shareholder; or

d. any agreement, contract or other arrangement providing
or any one or more of the actions specified in the foregoing clauses
a. to c.

2. The term "Stock Repurchase" shall mean any repurchase by the
Corporation or any Subsidiary of any shares of Capital Stock at a price
greater than the then Fair Market Value of such shares from an Interested
Shareholder or an Affiliate or Associate of an Interested Shareholder if
beneficial ownership of one-quarter or more of all shares of Capital
Stock beneficially owned by such Interested Shareholder and its
Affiliates and Associates were acquired (disregarding shares acquired as
part of a pro-rata stock dividend or stock split) within a period of less
than two years prior to the date of such repurchase (or the date of an

beneficial owner of Voting Stock representing ten percent (10%) or more
of the votes entitled to be cast by the holders of all then outstanding
shares of Voting Stock; or (b) is an Affiliate or Associate of the
Corporation and at any time within the two-year period immediately prior
to the date in question was the beneficial owner of Voting Stock
representing ten percent (10%) or more of the votes entitled to be cast

6. A person shall be a "beneficial owner" of any Capital Stock (a)
which such person or any of its Affiliates or Associates beneficially
owns, directly or indirectly; (b) which such person or any of its
Affiliates or Associates has, directly or indirectly, (i) the right to
acquire (whether such right is exercisable immediately or subject only to
the passage of time), pursuant to any agreement, arrangement or
understanding or upon the exercise of conversion rights, exchange rights,
warrants or options, or otherwise, or (ii) the right to vote pursuant to
any agreement, arrangement or understanding; or (c) which are

8. The term "Subsidiary" means any corporation of which a majority
of any class of equity security is beneficially owned by the Corporation,
as well as any Affiliate of the Corporation which is controlled by the
Corporation; provided, however, that for the purposes of the definition

Interested Shareholder, the term "Disinterested Director" means any
member of the Board of Directors of the Corporation (the "Board") who is
not an Affiliate or Associate or representative of such Interested
Shareholder and was a Member of the Board either on February 27, 1985 or
prior to the time that such Interested Shareholder became an Interested

elected to succeed the Disinterested Director by a majority of
Disinterested Directors.

10. The term "Fair Market Value" means (a) in the case of cash,
the amount of such cash; (b) in the case of stock, the highest closing
sale price during the 30-day period immediately preceding the date in
question of a share of such stock on the Composite Tape for New York
Stock Exchange-Listed Stocks, or, if such stock is not quoted on the
Composite Tape, on the New York Stock Exchange, or, if such stock is not
listed on such Exchange, on the principal United States securities
exchange registered under the Act on which such stock is listed, or, if
such stock is not listed on any such exchange, the highest closing bid
quotation with respect to a share of such stock during the 30-day period
preceding the date in question on the National Association of Securities
Dealers, Inc. Automated Quotations System or any similar system then in
use, or if no such quotations are available, the fair market value on the
date in question of a share of such stock as determined by a majority of
the Disinterested Directors in good faith; and (c) in the case of
property other than cash or stock, the fair market value of such property
on the date in question as determined in good faith by a majority of the
Disinterested Directors.

Corporation survives, the phrase "consideration other than cash to be
received" as used in Paragraphs 2.a and 2.b of Section B of this Article
EIGHTH shall include the

10

shares of Common Stock and/or the shares of any other class or series of
Capital Stock retained by the holders of such shares.

E. A majority of the Disinterested Directors shall have the power and
duty to determine for the purposes of this Article EIGHTH, on the basis of

under this Article EIGHTH, including, without limitation, (a) whether a
person is an Interested Shareholder, (b) the number of shares of Capital
Stock or other securities beneficially owned by any person, (c) whether a
person is an Affiliate or Associate of another, and (d) whether the

Stock being repurchased. Any such determination made in good faith shall be
binding and conclusive on all parties.

F. Nothing contained in this Article EIGHTH shall be construed to
relieve any Interested Shareholder from any fiduciary obligation imposed by
law.

G. The fact that any Business Transaction complies with the provisions
of Section B of this Article EIGHTH shall not be construed to impose any
fiduciary duty, obligation or responsibility on the Board, or any member
thereof, to approve such Business Transaction or recommend its adoption or
approval to the stockholders of the Corporation, nor shall such compliance
limit, prohibit or otherwise restrict in any manner the Board, or any member
thereof, with respect to evaluations of or actions and responses taken with
respect to such Business Transaction.

H. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Restated Certificate of
Incorporation or the By-laws of the Corporation (and notwithstanding the fact
that a lesser percentage or separate class vote may be specified by law, this
Restated Certificate of Incorporation or the By-laws of the Corporation), any
proposal to amend or repeal, or adopt any provision of this Restated
Certificate of Incorporation inconsistent with, this Article EIGHTH which is
proposed by or on behalf of an Interested Shareholder or an Affiliate or
Associate of an Interested Shareholder shall require approval by not less
than a majority vote of the holders of all then outstanding shares of Voting
Stock which are beneficially owned by persons other than such Interested
Shareholder and its Affiliates and Associates, voting together as a single
class; provided, however, that this Section H shall not apply to, and such
majority vote shall not be required for, any amendment, repeal or adoption
which does not affect the provisions of this Article EIGHTH relating to Stock
Repurchases and which is recommended by a majority of the Disinterested
Directors, if a majority of the directors then in office are Disinterested
Directors.

NINTH. A. The Corporation shall indemnify to the full extent authorized
or permitted by law any person made, or threatened to be made, a party to any
action or proceeding (whether civil or criminal or otherwise) by reason of
the fact that he, his testator or intestate, is or was a director or officer
of the Corporation or by reason of the fact that such director or officer, at
the request of the Corporation, is or was serving any other corporation,
partnership, joint venture, trust, employee benefit plan or other enterprise,
in any capacity. Nothing contained herein shall affect any rights to
indemnification to which employees other than directors and officers may be
entitled by

11

law. No amendment or repeal of this Section A of Article NINTH shall apply
to or have any effect on any right to indemnification provided hereunder with
respect to any acts or omissions occurring prior to such amendment or repeal.

B. The Corporation may purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any
person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the
Corporation, or is serving at the request of the Corporation as a director,
officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint
venture, trust, employee benefit plan or other enterprise against any
liability asserted against him and incurred by him in any such capacity, or
arising out of his status as such, whether or not the Corporation would have
the power to indemnify him against such liability under the provisions of the
law. The Corporation may create a trust fund, grant a security interest
and/or use other means (including, without limitation, letters of credit,
surety bonds and/or other similar arrangements), as well as enter into
contracts providing for indemnification to the fullest extent permitted by
law and including as part thereof any or all of the foregoing, to ensure the
payment of such sums as may become necessary to effect full indemnification.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, ANHEUSER-BUSCH COMPANIES, INC. has caused this
Restated Certificate of Incorporation to be signed by JoBeth G. Brown, its

ANHEUSER-BUSCH COMPANIES, INC., a Delaware corporation (the “Corporation”), hereby certifies as follows:

 

1. The Board of Directors of the Corporation adopted the following resolution on December 15, 2005:

 

RESOLVED, That this Board of Directors directs that an amendment providing for declassification be submitted to the stockholders for their approval at the 2006 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, and this Board recommends that the stockholders approve such amendment. Such amendment shall cause Article FIFTH of the Restated Certificate of Incorporation to be amended in its entirety to read as set forth below:

 

FIFTH: The business and affairs of the Corporation shall be under the direction of a Board of Directors consisting of not less than three or more than twenty-one directors, the exact number of directors to be determined from time to time by resolution adopted by the affirmative vote of a majority of the entire Board of Directors.

 

Commencing with the 2007 annual meeting of the stockholders, directors shall be elected annually for terms of one year and shall hold office until the next succeeding annual meeting and until his or her successor shall be elected and shall qualify, but subject to prior death, resignation, retirement, disqualification or removal from office. Directors elected at the 2004 annual meeting of stockholders shall hold office until the 2007 annual meeting of stockholders; directors elected at the 2005 annual meeting of stockholders shall hold office until the 2008 annual meeting of stockholders and directors elected at the 2006 annual meeting of stockholders shall hold office until the 2009 annual meeting of stockholders, and in each case until their successor shall be elected and qualify but subject to prior death, resignation, retirement, disqualification or removal from office.

 

Any vacancy on the Board of Directors that results from an increase in the number of directors may be filled by a majority of the Board of Directors then in office, provided that a quorum is present, and any other vacancy occurring in the Board of Directors may be filled by a majority of the directors then in office, even if less than a quorum, or by a sole remaining director. Any director elected or appointed to fill a vacancy not resulting from an increase in the number of directors shall have the same remaining term as that of his or her predecessor.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, whenever the holders of any one or more classes or series of preferred or preference stock issued by the Corporation shall have the right, voting separately by class or series, to elect directors at an annual or special meeting of stockholders, the election, term of office, filling of vacancies and other features of directors shall be governed by the terms of this Restated Certificate of Incorporation applicable thereto.

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

2. At the annual meeting of the stockholders of the Corporation, which was called and held upon notice in accordance with Section 222 of the General Corporation Law of Delaware, a majority of the outstanding stock entitled to vote thereon was voted in favor of the amendment set forth above.

 

3. Accordingly, the amendment set forth above has been duly adopted in accordance with the provisions of Section 242 of the General Corporation Law of Delaware.
