divisions shall be in the same proportion with respect to each class of stock,
but only shares of Common Stock shall be distributed with respect to Common
Stock and only shares of Class A Common Stock shall be distributed with respect
to Class A Common Stock. In the case of any combination of reclassification of

reclassification.

the record date for the initial distribution of Class A Common Stock) unless and
until such issuance is authorized by the holders of a majority of the voting

                                       10
<PAGE>   11
 
 
list of shareholders entitled to vote at any meeting of shareholders, or as a
condition to the transfer or the registration of shares of Class A Common Stock
on the Corporation's books, require the furnishing of such affidavits or other
proof as it deems necessary to establish that any person is the beneficial owner
of shares of Class A Common Stock or is a Permitted Transferee.
 
                                  (5) Except as provided above, shares of Class
A Common Stock shall be registered in the names of the beneficial owners thereof
and not in "street" or "nominee" name; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that certificates
representing shares of Class A Common Stock issued as a stock dividend on the
then outstanding Common Stock may be registered in the same name and manner of
the certificates representing the shares of Common Stock with respect to which
the shares of Class A Common Stock are issued. For this purpose, a "beneficial
owner" of any shares of Class A Common Stock shall mean a person who, or an
entity which, possesses the power, either singly or jointly, to direct the
voting or disposition of such shares. Class A Common Stock registered in
"street" or "nominee" name may be transferred to the beneficial owner of such
shares on the record date for such stock dividend, upon proof satisfactory to
the Corporation and any transfer agent for Class A Common Stock that such person
was in fact the beneficial owner of such shares on the record date for such
stock dividend. The Corporation shall note on the certificates for shares of
Class A Common Stock the restrictions on transfer and registration of transfer
imposed by this Section C.
 
                               D. Conversion Rights.
 
                                  (1) Subject to the terms and conditions of
this Section D, each share of Class A Common Stock shall be convertible at any
time or from time to time at the option of the respective holders thereof, at
 
 
 
                                       11
<PAGE>   12
 
 
the office of any transfer agent for Class A Common Stock, and at such other
place or places, if any, as the Board of Directors may designate, or if the
Board of Directors shall fail so to designate, at the principal office of the
Corporation (attention of the Secretary), into one (1) fully paid and
nonassessable share of Common Stock. Upon conversion, the Corporation shall make
no payment or adjustment on account of dividends accrued or in arrears on Class
A Common Stock surrendered for conversion or on account of any dividends on the
Common Stock issuable on such conversion. Before any holder of Class A Common
Stock shall be entitled to convert the same into Common Stock, he shall
surrender the certificate or certificates for such Class A Common Stock at the
office of said transfer agent (or other place as provided above), which
certificate or certificates, if the Corporation shall so request, shall be duly
endorsed to the Corporation or in blank or accompanied by proper instruments of
transfer to the Corporation (such endorsements or instruments of transfer to be
in form satisfactory to the Corporation), and shall give written notice to the
Corporation at said office that he elects so to convert said Class A Common
Stock in accordance with the terms of this Section D, and shall state in writing
therein the name or names in which he wishes the certificate or certificates for
Common Stock to be issued. Every such notice of election to convert shall
constitute a contract between the holder of such Class A Common Stock and the
Corporation, whereby the holder of such Class A Common Stock shall be deemed to
subscribe for the amount of Common Stock which he shall be entitled to receive
upon such conversion, and, in satisfaction of such subscription, to deposit the
Class A Common Stock to be converted and to release the Corporation from all
liability thereunder, and thereby the Corporation shall be deemed to agree that
the surrender of the certificate or certificates therefor and the extinguishment
of liability thereon shall constitute full payment of such subscription for
Common Stock to be issued upon such conversion. The Corporation will as soon as
practicable after such deposit of a certificate or certificates for Class A
Common Stock, accompanied by the written notice and the statement above
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                       12
<PAGE>   13
 
 
prescribed, issue and deliver at the office of said transfer agent (or other
place as provided above) to the person for whose account such Class A Common
Stock was so surrendered, or to his nominee or nominees, a certificate or
certificates for the number of full shares of Common Stock to which he shall be
entitled as aforesaid. Subject to the provision of subsection (3) of this
Section D, such conversion shall be deemed to have been made as of the date of
such surrender of the Class A Common Stock to be converted, and the person or
persons entitled to receive the Common Stock issuable upon conversion of such
Class A Common Stock shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder or
holders of such Common Stock on such date.
 
                                    (2) The issuance of certificates for shares
of Common Stock upon conversion of shares of Class A Common Stock shall be made
without charge for any stamp or other similar tax in respect of such issuance.
However, if any such certificate is to be issued in a name other than that of
the holder of the share or shares of Class A Common Stock converted, the person
or persons requesting the issuance thereof shall pay to the Corporation the
amount of any tax which may be payable in respect of any transfer involved in
such issuance or shall establish to the satisfaction of the Corporation that
such tax has been paid.
 
                                    (3) The Corporation shall not be required to
convert Class A Common Stock, and no surrender of Class A Common Stock shall be
effective for the purpose, while the stock transfer books of the Corporation are
closed for any purpose; but the surrender of Class A Common Stock for conversion
during any period while such books are so closed shall become effective for
conversion immediately upon the reopening of such books, as if the conversion
had been made on the date such Class A Common Stock was surrendered.
 
 
 
 
 
                                       13
<PAGE>   14
 
 
                                    (4) The Corporation covenants that it will
at all times reserve and keep available, solely for the purpose of issue upon
conversion of the outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock, such number of
shares of Common Stock as shall be issuable upon the conversion of all such
outstanding shares, provided that nothing contained herein shall be construed to
preclude the Corporation from satisfying its obligations in respect of the
conversion of the outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock by delivery of
shares of Common Stock which are held in the treasury of the Corporation. The
Corporation covenants that all shares of Common Stock which shall be issued upon
conversion of the shares of Class A Common Stock will, upon issue, be fully paid
and nonassessable and not entitled to any pre-emptive rights. All shares of
Class A Common Stock converted into Common Stock shall be cancelled and restored
to the status of authorized but unissued shares of Class A Common Stock.
 
                                    (5) At any time when the Board of Directors
and holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock
approve the conversion of all of the Class A Common Stock into Common Stock,
then the outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock shall be converted into
shares of Common Stock. In the event of such a conversion, certificates formerly
representing outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock shall thereupon and
thereafter be deemed to represent the like number of shares of Common Stock.
 
                            E.      Liquidation Rights.
 
                                    In the event of any dissolution, liquidation
or winding up of the affairs of the Corporation, whether voluntary or
involuntary, after payment or provision for payment of the debts and other
liabilities of the Corporation and the amount to which the holders of Preferred
Stock shall be entitled, the remaining assets and funds of the Corporation, if
any, shall be divided among and paid ratably to the holders of Common Stock and
the holders of Class A Common Stock (considered for this purpose as one class).
A merger or consolidation of the Corporation with or into any other corporation
 
 
 
 
 
                                       14
<PAGE>   15
 
 
or a sale or conveyance of all or any part of the assets of the Corporation
(which shall not in fact result in the liquidation of the Corporation and the
distribution of assets to shareholders) shall not be deemed to be a voluntary or
involuntary liquidation or dissolution or winding up of the Corporation within
the meaning of this Section E.
 
                            F.      Pre-emptive Rights.
 
                                    Subject to any conversion rights of the
holders of Class A Common Stock, no holder of either Common Stock or Class A
Common Stock of the Corporation shall be entitled as of right to subscribe for
or receive any part of the authorized stock of the Corporation or any part of
any new, additional or increased issues of stock of any class or of any
obligations convertible into any class of classes of stock, but the Board of
Directors may, without offering any such shares of stock or obligations
convertible into stock to shareholders of any class, issue and sell or dispose
of to such persons and for such consideration permitted by law as it may from
time to time in its absolute discretion determine.
 
                                     GENERAL
 
                               (8) The Corporation shall be entitled to treat
the person in whose name any share is registered as the owner thereof, for all
purposes, and shall not be bound to recognize any equitable or other claim to,
or interest in, such share on the part of any other person, whether or not the
Corporation shall have notice thereof, save as expressly provided by the laws of
the State of Florida.
 
 
 
 
 
                                       15
<PAGE>   16
 
 
 
                               (9) The number of members that shall comprise the
Board of Directors shall be not less than three nor more than nine as the Board
of Directors from time to time shall decide. Notwithstanding any other
provisions of law, these Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation or the
By-Laws of the Corporation, the affirmative vote of holders of not less than 75%
of the voting power of the then outstanding shares of capital stock of the
Corporation entitled to vote thereon shall be required to amend, alter, change
or repeal, or adopt any provision inconsistent with this paragraph (9) of
Article FOURTH.
 
         FIFTH. The Corporation is to have perpetual existence.
 
         SIXTH. The private property of the shareholders shall not be subject to
the payment of corporate debts to any extent whatever.

         To make, alter or repeal the By-laws of the Corporation.
 
         To authorize and cause to be executed mortgages and liens upon the real
and personal property of the Corporation.
 
         To set apart out of any of the funds of the Corporation available for
dividends a reserve or reserves for any proper purpose and to abolish any such
reserve in the manner in which it was created.
 
         By resolution passed by a majority of the whole Board of Directors, to
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 the
resolution or in the By-Laws of the Corporation, shall have and may exercise the
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                       16
<PAGE>   17
 
 
powers of the Board of Directors in the management of the business and affairs
of the Corporation, and may 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.
 
         EIGHTH. (1) A director or officer of the Corporation shall not be

for any breach of the director's duty of loyalty to the Corporation or its
shareholders, (ii) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve
intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) under Section
607.0834 of the Florida Business Corporation Act, as the same exists or
hereafter may be amended, (iv) for violation of a criminal law, unless the
director or officer had reasonable cause to believe his or her conduct was
lawful or had no reasonable cause to believe his or her conduct was unlawful, or
(v) for any transaction from which the director derived any improper personal
benefit. If the Florida Business Corporation Act is hereafter amended to
authorize corporate action further eliminating or limiting the personal
liability of directors and officers, then the liability of a director or officer
of the Corporation shall be eliminated or limited to the fullest extent
permitted by the Florida Business Corporation Act, as so amended.

                  (2) (a) RIGHT TO INDEMNIFICATION. Each person who was or is
made a party or is threatened to be made a party to or is otherwise involved in
any action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or
investigative (hereinafter a "proceeding"), by reason of the fact that he or she
is or was a director, officer or employee 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 of a partnership, joint venture, trust or other
enterprise, including service with respect to employee benefit plans
(hereinafter an "indemnitee"), whether the basis of such proceeding is alleged
action in an official capacity as a director, officer, employee or agent or in
any other capacity while serving as a director, officer, employee or agent,
shall be indemnified and held harmless by the corporation to the fullest extent
authorized by the Florida Business Corporation Act, as the same exists or may
hereafter be amended (but, in the case of any such amendment, only to the extent
that such amendment permits the Corporation to provide broader indemnification
rights that such law permitted the Corporation to provide prior to such
amendment), against all expense, liability and loss (including attorneys' fees,
judgments, fines, ERISA excise taxes or penalties and amounts paid in
settlement) reasonably incurred or suffered by such indemnitee in connection
therewith and such indemnification shall continue as to an indemnitee who has
ceased to be a director, officer, employee or agent and shall inure to the
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                       18
<PAGE>   19
 
 
 
benefit of the indemnitee's heirs, executors and administrators; provided,
however, that, except as provided in paragraph (b) hereof with respect to
proceedings to enforce rights to indemnification, the Corporation shall
indemnify any such indemnitee in connection with a proceeding (or part thereof)
initiated by such indemnitee only if such proceeding (or part thereof) was
authorized by the Board of Directors. The right to indemnification conferred in
this Section shall be a contract right and shall include the right to be paid by
the Corporation the expenses incurred in defending any such proceeding in
advance of its final disposition (hereinafter an "advancement of expenses");
provided, however, that, if the Florida Business Corporation Act requires, an
advancement of expenses incurred by an indemnitee in his or her capacity as a
director or officer (and not in any other capacity in which service was or is
rendered by such indemnitee, including without limitation, service to an
employee benefit plan) shall be made only upon delivery to the Corporation of an
undertaking, by or on behalf of such indemnitee, to repay all amounts so
advanced if it shall ultimately be determined by final judicial decision from
which there is no further right to appeal that such indemnitee is not entitled
to be indemnified for such expenses under this Section or otherwise (hereinafter
an "undertaking").
 
                  (b) RIGHT OF INDEMNITEE TO BRING SUIT. If a claim under
paragraph (a) of this Section is not paid in full by the Corporation within
sixty days after a written claim has been received by the Corporation, except in
the case of a claim for an advancement of expenses, in which case the applicable
period shall be twenty days, the indemnitee may at any time thereafter bring
suit against the Corporation to recover the unpaid amount of the claim. If
successful in whole or in part in any such suit or in a suit brought by the
Corporation to recover an advancement of expenses pursuant to the terms of an
undertaking, the indemnitee shall be entitled to be paid also the expense of
prosecuting or defending such suit. In (i) any suit brought by the indemnitee to
enforce a right to indemnification hereunder (but not in a suit brought by the
indemnitee to enforce a right to an advancement of expenses) it shall be a
defense that, and (ii) any suit by the Corporation to recover an advancement of
expenses pursuant to the terms of an undertaking the Corporation shall be
entitled to recover such expenses upon a final adjudication that, the indemnitee
has not met the applicable standard of conduct set forth in the Florida Business
Corporation Act. Neither the failure of the Corporation (including its Board of
Directors, independent legal counsel, or its shareholders) to have made a
 
 
 
 
 
                                       19
<PAGE>   20
 
 
 
determination prior to the commencement of such suit that indemnification of the
indemnitee is proper in the circumstances because the indemnitee has met the
applicable standard of conduct set forth in the Florida Business Corporation
Act, nor an actual determination by the Corporation (including its Board of
Directors, independent legal counsel, or its shareholders) that the indemnitee
has not met such applicable standard of conduct, shall create a presumption that
the indemnitee has not met the applicable standard of conduct or, in the case of
such a suit brought by the indemnitee, be a defense to such suit. In any suit
brought by the indemnitee to enforce a right hereunder, or by the Corporation to
recover an advancement of expenses pursuant to the terms of an undertaking, the
burden of proving that the indemnitee is not entitled to be indemnified or to
such advancement of expenses under this Section or otherwise shall be on the
Corporation.
 
                  (c) NON--EXCLUSIVITY OF RIGHTs. The rights to indemnification
and to the advancement of expenses conferred in this Section shall not be
exclusive of any other right which any person may have or hereafter acquire
under any statute, these Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, the
By-Laws, agreement, vote of shareholders or disinterested directors or
otherwise.
 
                  (d) INSURANCE. The Corporation may maintain insurance, at its
expense, to protect itself and any director, officer, employee or agent of the
Corporation or another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other
enterprise against any expense, liability or loss, whether or not the
Corporation would have the power to indemnify such person against such expense,
liability or loss under the Florida Business Corporation Act.
 
                  (e) INDEMNIFICATION OF AGENTS OF THE CORPORATION. The
Corporation may, to the extent authorized from time to time by the Board of
Directors, grant rights to indemnification and to the advancement of expenses,
 
 
 
 
 
                                       20
<PAGE>   21
 
 
 
to any agent of the Corporation to the fullest extent of the provisions of this
Section with respect to the indemnification and advancement of expenses of
directors, officers and employees of the Corporation.
 
         NINTH. Meetings of shareholders may be held outside the State of
Florida, if the By-Laws of the Corporation so provide. The books of the
Corporation may be kept (subject to any provision contained in the Florida
Business Corporation Act) outside the State of Florida at such place or places
as may be designated from time to time by the Board of Directors or in the
By-Laws of the Corporation. Elections of directors need not be by ballot unless
the By-Laws of the Corporation shall so provide.
 
         TENTH. The Corporation reserves the right to amend, alter, change, or
repeal any provision contained in these Amended and Restated Articles of
Incorporation, in the manner now or hereafter prescribed by Florida Business
Corporation Act, and all rights conferred upon shareholders herein are granted
subject to this reservation.
 
         ELEVENTH. (1) The affirmative vote of the holders of not less than 75%
of the voting power of the outstanding shares of capital stock of the
Corporation entitled to vote shall be required for the approval or authorization
of any "Fundamental Change" (as hereinafter defined) involving a "Related
Person" (as hereinafter defined); provided, however, that the 75% voting
requirement shall not be applicable, and the provisions of Florida Business
Corporation Act relating to the percentage of shareholder approval, if any,
shall apply to any such Fundamental Change if the "Continuing Directors" of the
Corporation (as hereinafter defined) by a majority vote have expressly approved
the Fundamental Change either in advance of or subsequent to the acquisition of
outstanding shares of capital stock of the Corporation that caused the Related
Person to become a Related Person.
