No holder of shares of any class of stock of the corporation as such shall have any preemptive or other right to subscribe for or purchase any shares of any class of stock of the corporation, or any securities convertible into shares of stock of any class, which at any time may be issued or sold by the corporation, other than such right, if any, as the board of directors in its discretion may determine.

 

A description of the different classes of stock of the corporation and a statement of the designations, powers, preferences and relative, participating, optional or other special rights and qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof, fixed by the Certificate of Incorporation, and the express grant of authority, to the board of directors to fix by resolution or resolutions certain thereof not so fixed, are as follows:

 

PREFERRED STOCK

 

The affirmative vote of the holders of at least two-thirds of the Preferred Stock at the time outstanding voting only as a class shall be required to make effective any amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation or by-laws of the corporation altering materially any existing provisions of the Preferred Stock, or authorizing a class of preferred stock ranking prior to the Preferred Stock as to dividends or assets, and the affirmative vote of the holders of at least a majority of the Preferred Stock at the time outstanding voting only as a class shall be required to make effective any amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation of the corporation authorizing the issuance of or any increase in the authorized amount of any class of preferred stock ranking on a parity with or increasing the number of authorized shares of the Preferred Stock.

 

If and whenever accrued dividends on the Preferred Stock shall not have been paid or declared and a sum sufficient for the payment thereof set aside, in an amount equivalent to six quarterly dividends on all shares of all series of the Preferred Stock at the time outstanding, then and in such event, the holders of the Preferred Stock, voting separately as a class, shall be entitled to elect two directors at the next annual or special meeting of the stockholders. Such right of the holders of the Preferred Stock to elect two directors may be exercised until dividends in default on the Preferred Stock shall have been paid in full or declared and a sum sufficient for the payment thereof set aside, and when so paid or provided for, then the right of the holders of the Preferred Stock to

 

4


elect such number of directors shall cease, but subject always to the same provisions for the vesting of such voting rights in the case of any such future dividend default or defaults. During any time that the holders of the Preferred Stock, voting as a class, are entitled to elect two directors as hereinabove provided, the holders of any series of Preferred Stock entitled to participate with the holders of Common Stock in the election of directors shall not be entitled to participate with the holders of the Common Stock in the election of any other directors.

 

At any annual or special meeting of the stockholders or any adjournment thereof at which the holders of Preferred Stock shall be entitled to elect two directors, if the holders of at least a majority of the shares of the Preferred Stock then outstanding shall be present or represented by proxy, then, by vote of the holders of at least a majority of the shares then present or so represented at such meeting, the then authorized number of directors of the corporation shall be increased by two, and at such meeting, the holders of the shares of Preferred Stock, voting as a class, shall be entitled to elect the additional directors so provided for. Whenever the holders of Preferred Stock shall be divested of special voting power as herein provided, the terms of all persons elected as directors by the holders of the shares of Preferred Stock as a class shall forthwith terminate, and the authorized number of directors of the corporation shall be reduced accordingly.

 

The Board of Directors is hereby expressly authorized, by resolution or resolutions from time to time adopted, to provide for the issuance of the Preferred Stock in series and to fix and state, to the extent not fixed by the provisions hereinabove set forth and subject to limitations prescribed by law, the voting powers, designations, preferences and relative, participating, optional and other special rights of the shares of each such series and the qualifications, limitations and restrictions thereof, including, but not limited to, determination of any of the following:

 

(a) the distinctive serial designation and the number of shares constituting the series;

 

(b) the dividend rate, whether dividends shall be cumulative and, if so, from which date, the payment date or dates for dividends, and the participating or other special rights, if any, with respect to dividends;

 

(c) the voting powers, full or limited in addition to the voting powers provided above or by law;

 

(d) whether the shares shall be redeemable, and if so, the price or prices at which, and the terms and conditions on which, the shares may be redeemed;

 

(e) the amount or amounts payable upon the shares in the event of voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the corporation;

 

(f) whether the shares shall be entitled to the benefit of a sinking or retirement fund to be applied to the purchase or redemption of shares of the series, and, if so entitled, the amount of such fund and the manner of its application, including the price or prices at which the shares may be redeemed or purchased through the applications of such fund; and

 

5


(g) whether the shares shall be convertible into, or exchangeable for, shares of any other class or classes or of any other series of the same or any other class or classes of stock of the corporation and, if so convertible or exchangeable, the conversion price or prices, or the rates of exchange, and the adjustments thereof, if any, at which such conversion or exchange may be made and any other terms and conditions of such conversion or exchange.

 

Each share of each series of Preferred Stock shall have the same relative rights as and be identical in all respects with all the other shares of the same series.

 

COMMON STOCK

 

Except as otherwise required by law, as hereinabove provided and as otherwise provided in the resolution or resolutions, if any, adopted by the Board of Directors of the corporation with respect to any series of the Preferred Stock, the holders of the Common Stock shall exclusively possess all voting power. Each holder of shares of Common Stock shall be entitled to one vote for each share held by him.

 

Whenever there shall have been paid, or declared and set aside for payment, to the holders of the outstanding shares of Preferred Stock and to the holders of outstanding shares of any other class of stock having preference over the Common Stock as to the payment of dividends the full amount of dividends and of sinking fund or retirement fund or other retirement payments if any, to which such holders are respectively entitled in preference to the Common Stock, then dividends may be paid on the Common Stock and on any class or series of stock entitled to participate therewith as to dividends, out of any assets legally available for the payment of dividends, but only when and if declared by the Board of Directors.

 

In the event of any liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the corporation, after there shall have been paid to or set aside for the holders of shares of Preferred Stock and any other class having preference over the Common Stock in the event of liquidation, dissolution or winding up the full preferential amounts to which they are respectively entitled, the holders of the Common Stock, and of any class or series of stock entitled to participate therewith, in whole or in part, as to distributions of assets, shall be entitled to receive the remaining assets of the corporation available for distribution, in cash or in kind.

 

Each share of Common Stock shall have the same relative rights as and be identical in all respects with all the other shares of Common Stock.

 

FIFTH: The amount of capital with which the corporation will commence business is one thousand dollars ($1,000).

Except with respect to directors who may be elected by holders of any class or series of stock having a preference over the Common Stock as to dividends or upon liquidation, at the 2004 annual meeting of stockholders, the successors of the directors whose terms expire at that meeting shall be elected for a term expiring at the 2005 annual meeting of stockholders (which number of directors shall be approximately one-third of the total number of directors of the corporation); at the 2005 annual meeting of stockholders, the successors of the directors whose terms expire at that meeting shall be elected for a term expiring at the 2006 annual meeting of stockholders (which number of directors shall be approximately two-thirds of the total number of directors of the corporation); and at each annual meeting of stockholders thereafter, the directors shall be elected for terms expiring at the next annual meeting of stockholders. No decrease in the number of directors constituting the board of directors or change in the restrictions and qualifications for directors shall shorten the term of any incumbent director.

 

Notwithstanding anything contained in this Certificate of Incorporation to the contrary, the affirmative vote of the holders of at least 75% of the outstanding shares of stock of the corporation entitled to vote generally in the election of directors, voting together as a single class, shall be required to alter, amend, adopt any provision inconsistent with or repeal this Article EIGHTH (a).

The board of directors shall have absolute discretion in the declaration of dividends out of the net profits of said corporation; and they may accumulate such profits to such extent as they may deem advisable, issue or distribute them among the stockholders, and may invest and reinvest the same in such manner as in their absolute discretion they may deem advisable.

 

They may set apart out of any funds of the corporation available for dividends a reserve or reserves for any proper purpose or may abolish any such reserve in the manner in which it was created.

 

They may by resolution or resolutions, passed by a majority of the whole board, designate one or more committees, each committee to consist of two or more of the directors of the corporation, which, to the extent provided in said resolution or resolutions or in the by-laws of the corporation, shall have and may exercise the powers of the board of directors in the management of the business and affairs of the corporation, and may have power to authorize the seal of the corporation to be affixed to all papers which may require it. Such committee or committees shall have such name or names as may be stated in the by-laws of the corporation or as may be determined from time to time by resolution adopted by the board of directors.

 

In the absence of fraud, no contract or other transaction between said corporation and any other corporation and no act of said corporation shall be in any way invalidated or otherwise affected by the fact that any one or more of the directors of said corporation are pecuniarily or otherwise interested in, or are directors or officers of such other corporation. Any director of said corporation individually, or any firm or association of which any director may be a member, may be a party to, or may be pecuniarily or otherwise interested in, any contract or transaction of said corporation, provided that the fact that he individually or as a member of such firm or association is so interested shall be disclosed or shall have been known to the board of directors or a majority of the members thereof; and any director of said corporation who is also a director or officer of such other corporation or who is so interested may be counted in determining the existence of a quorum at any meeting of the board of directors or of any committee of said corporation which shall authorize any such contract or transaction and may vote thereat to authorize any such contract or

 

8


transactions with like force and effect as if he were not such director or officer of such other corporation or not so interested.

THIRTEENTH: Subject to the provisions of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, no director of the corporation shall be personally liable to the corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, subsequent to the adoption of this Article, except to the extent that such liability arises (i) from a breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders, (ii) as a result of acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) under Section 174 of the Delaware General Corporation Law relating to the unlawful payment of dividends or unlawful stock purchase or redemption or (iv) any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.

Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), in accordance with the provisions of Section 103 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, DOES HEREBY CERTIFY:

1. The name of the Company is Bristol-Myers Squibb Company.

2. An Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Company was filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware (the “Secretary of State”) on May 24, 2005 (the “Certificate of Incorporation”) and said Certificate of Incorporation requires correction as permitted by subsection (f) of Section 103 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware.
