II. PREFERRED STOCK

II.A. Provisions Generally Applicable to Preferred Stock

II.A.(i) The Preferred Stock may be issued from time to time in one
or more series, the shares of each series to have such designations,
preferences, privileges, and voting powers, and the restrictions or
qualifications thereof, as are stated and expressed herein or in a resolution or
resolutions providing for the issue of such series adopted by the Board of
Directors as hereafter provided.

II.A.(ii) Authority is hereby expressly granted to the Board of
Directors, subject to the provisions of this Certificate and Delaware Law, to
authorize the issue of one or more series of Preferred Stock and with respect to
each such series to fix by resolution or resolutions providing for the issue of
such series:

(1) The number of shares of Preferred Stock which shall
comprise such series and the distinctive designation thereof;

(2) The dividend rate on the shares of such series (not
exceeding $6 a share per annum) and the date or dates from which
dividends shall accumulate;

(3) Whether or not the shares of such series shall be
subject to purchase and to redemption and the amount of premium, if
any (not exceeding $7 a share), which the holders of shares of such
series shall be entitled to receive over and above $100 a share and
any accrued dividends thereon upon the redemption thereof or upon
the voluntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the
Corporation;

(4) Whether or not the shares of such series shall be
subject to the operation of a sinking fund to be applied to the
purchase or redemption of the shares of such series for retirement
and, if such sinking fund be established, the terms and provisions
relative to the operation thereof;

(5) Whether or not the shares of such series shall be
made convertible into or exchangeable for any other class or classes
or for any other series of the same class of stock of the
Corporation and, if made so convertible or exchangeable, the
conversion price or prices or rates of exchange at which such
conversion or exchange may be made and the method, if any, of
adjusting the same;

(6) The restrictions, if any, on the payment of
dividends upon, and the making of distributions to, any class of
stock ranking junior to the shares of Preferred Stock, and the
restrictions, if any, on the purchase or redemption of the shares of
any such junior class; and

(7) The voting rights, if any, of the shares of such
series other than those voting rights provided for in Section
II.A.(viii) of this Article Fourth.

II.A.(iii) All shares of any one series of Preferred Stock shall be
identical with each other in all respects except that shares of any one series
issued at different times may differ as to the dates from which dividends
thereon shall accumulate; and all series shall rank equally and be identical in
all respects except as permitted in the foregoing provisions of Section
II.A.(ii) of this Article Fourth.

II.A.(iv) The holders of shares of Preferred Stock of each series
shall be entitled to receive, when and as declared by the Board of Directors,
dividends payable in cash in, but not exceeding, the amount fixed for such
series. Such dividends shall be cumulative, so that if dividends on all
outstanding Preferred Stock of each series in the amount fixed therefor shall
not have been paid or declared and set apart for payment for all past dividend
periods, and for the dividend period current at the time, the deficiency shall
be fully paid, or dividends equal thereto declared and set apart for payment,
but without interest thereon, before any dividends on any class of stock of the
Corporation junior to the Preferred Stock shall be paid or declared and set
apart for payment.

Dividends shall not be declared or paid on the Preferred Stock of
any one series for any dividend period unless dividends have been or are
contemporaneously paid or declared and set apart for payment on the Preferred
Stock of all series for the dividend periods terminating on the same and all
earlier dates.

Any dividend paid in an amount less than full cumulative dividends
accrued or in arrears on all Preferred Stock then outstanding shall be divided
between the outstanding Preferred Stock in proportion to the amounts which would
be distributable per share to the Preferred Stock if full cumulative dividends
were declared and paid thereon.

After full cumulative dividends as aforesaid upon the Preferred
Stock of all series then outstanding shall have been paid for all past dividend
periods, and full dividends on the Preferred Stock then outstanding for the
current dividend period shall have been declared and paid or set apart for
payment, and after complying with all the provisions with respect to any sinking
fund or funds for any one or more series of Preferred Stock, then, and not
otherwise, dividends may be declared and paid upon any class of stock of the
Corporation junior to the Preferred Stock.

II.A.(v) In the event of any liquidation, dissolution or winding up
of the Corporation the Preferred Stock shall be preferred as to assets as well
as dividends and upon any such dissolution, liquidation or winding up, the
holders of the Preferred Stock of each series shall be entitled to receive and
be paid for each share thereof out of the assets of the Corporation (whether
capital or surplus) $100, together with an amount equal to the accrued and
unpaid dividends thereon computed to the date of payment, plus a premium of such
additional

4

amount per share as shall have been fixed for such series in the event the
dissolution, liquidation or winding up is voluntary, before any distribution of
the assets shall be made to the holders of any class of stock of the Corporation
junior to the Preferred Stock. All assets remaining after such distribution to
the Preferred Stock shall then be distributed exclusively among the holders of
any class or classes of stock of the Corporation junior to the Preferred Stock.
If, upon any such dissolution, liquidation or winding up, the assets of the
Corporation distributable among the holders of Preferred Stock shall be
insufficient to pay in full the preferential amount aforesaid, then such assets
or the proceeds thereof shall be distributed ratably among the holders of
Preferred Stock then outstanding until there shall have been paid in full and in
order, first, the sum of $100 in respect of each share; second, an amount
ratably in proportion to the amounts to which they are respectively entitled by
reason of accrued and unpaid dividends computed to the date of distribution; and
third, the balance ratably in proportion to the amounts to which they are
respectively entitled by way of premium.

II.A.(vi) The Corporation, at its option to be exercised by its
Board of Directors, may redeem the whole or any part of any series of Preferred
Stock which by its terms is subject to redemption, at the time or times provided
in the terms of such series, at a redemption price per share for each series
thereof, equal to: $100 plus a premium, if any, of such additional amount as
shall have been fixed as payable in case of redemption in respect of each share
of such series and an amount equal to any accrued and unpaid dividends thereon
computed to the date of redemption. If at any time less than all of the
Preferred Stock then outstanding and subject to redemption shall be called for
redemption, the Board of Directors may select the series of such Preferred Stock
to be redeemed and if less than all the Preferred Stock of any series is to be
called for redemption, the shares to be redeemed may be selected by lot or by
such other equitable method as the Board of Directors in its discretion may
determine. Notice of every such redemption, stating the redemption date, the
redemption price, and the place of payment thereof, shall be given by mailing a
copy of such notice at least thirty (30) days and not more than sixty (60) days
prior to the date fixed for redemption to the holders of record of the Preferred
Stock to be redeemed at their respective addresses as the same appear on the
books of the Corporation. A similar notice shall be published at least once in a
daily newspaper printed in the English language and published and of general
circulation in the Borough of Manhattan, the City of New York. At any time after
notice of redemption has been given in the manner prescribed by the Board of
Directors to the holders of stock so to be redeemed the Corporation may deposit
with a bank or trust company having capital, surplus and undivided profits of at
least $5,000,000 named in such notice, the redemption price, in trust, for
payment on or before the date fixed for redemption, as aforesaid, to the
respective orders of the holders of the shares so to be redeemed, on such
endorsement to the Corporation or its nominee or otherwise, as may be required,
and upon surrender of the certificates for such shares. Upon the deposit of the
said redemption price as aforesaid, or, if no such deposit is made, upon the
said redemption date (unless the Corporation shall default in making payment of
the redemption price as set forth in such notice), such holders shall cease to
be stockholders with respect to the said shares, and from and after the making
of the said deposit, or, if no such deposit is made, after the redemption date
(the Corporation


5

not having defaulted in making payment of the redemption price as set forth in
such notice), the said shares shall no longer be transferable on the books of
the Corporation, and the said holders shall have no interest in or claim against
the Corporation with respect to the said shares but shall be entitled only to
such conversion rights (if any) on or before the date fixed for redemption as
may be provided with respect to such shares or to receive payment of the
redemption price without interest thereon, upon endorsement; provided, that any
funds so deposited by the Corporation and unclaimed at the end of one year from
the date fixed for such redemption shall be repaid to the Corporation upon its
request, after which repayment the holders of such shares so called for
redemption shall look only to the Corporation for the payment of the redemption
price thereof. Any funds so deposited, which shall not be required for such
redemption because of the exercise of any right of conversion or otherwise
subsequently to the date of such deposit, shall be returned to the Corporation
forthwith. Any interest accrued on any funds so deposited shall belong to the
Corporation and shall be paid to it from time to time.

In order to facilitate the redemption of any shares of Preferred
Stock, the Board of Directors is authorized to cause the transfer books of the
Corporation to be closed as to the shares to be redeemed.

The Corporation shall have the right, provided full cumulative
dividends on the Preferred Stock shall have been paid for past dividend periods
and the Corporation shall not then be in default as to any payment required for
any sinking fund created with respect to any series of Preferred Stock, to
purchase Preferred Stock of any series which is subject to purchase by the terms
of such series, at prices not in excess of the then redemption price thereof,
either for the purpose of redemption or retirement or to be held, used and
disposed of as treasury shares.

II.A.(vii) If at any time the Corporation shall have failed to pay
dividends in full on the Preferred Stock, thereafter and until dividends in
full, including all accrued and unpaid dividends, on Preferred Stock outstanding
shall have been paid, or declared and set aside for payment, the Corporation
shall not redeem any Preferred Stock except as a whole and shall not purchase
any Preferred Stock except in accordance with a purchase offer made in writing
or by publication (as determined by the Board of Directors) to all holders of
the Preferred Stock upon the same terms as to any series, and shall not purchase
or redeem any other shares of any class ranking on a parity with or junior to
the Preferred Stock as to dividends or as to assets.

II.A.(viii) Special Voting Rights of Preferred Stock

(1) The Corporation shall not, without the affirmative vote at a
meeting, or the written consent with or without a meeting, of the holders of at
least two-thirds of the then outstanding Preferred Stock of all series:


6

(a) Change the express terms and provisions applicable
to all series of the Preferred Stock in any material respect
prejudicial to the holders thereof; or

(b) Create any class of stock which shall be preferred
as to dividends or as to assets over the Preferred Stock.

(2) The Corporation shall not, without the affirmative vote at a
meeting, or the written consent with or without a meeting, of the holders of at
least two-thirds of the outstanding Preferred Stock of any particular series,
change the express terms of the special provisions for such series as provided
in this Certificate or in the resolution or resolutions of the Board of
Directors providing for the issue of such series in any material respect
prejudicial to the holders of shares of such series.

(3) The Corporation shall not without the affirmative vote at a
meeting, or the written consent with or without a meeting, of the holders of at
least a majority of the then outstanding Preferred Stock of all series, increase
the authorized number of shares of Preferred Stock or create any class of stock
which shall rank on a parity with the Preferred Stock as to dividends or as to
assets.

(4) If the Corporation shall have failed to pay dividends upon the
Preferred Stock in an aggregate amount equal to four full quarterly dividends on
any series of the Preferred Stock at the time outstanding, the holders of
Preferred Stock shall have the right, voting separately as a class at the annual
meeting of stockholders, to elect one-third (or the nearest number thereto) of
the members of the Board of Directors of the Corporation until such time as all
dividends accumulated on the Preferred Stock shall have been paid in full; and
upon such payment in full of all dividends accumulated on the Preferred Stock,
such special voting rights of holders thereof shall cease, subject to re-vesting
in the event of each and every subsequent default of the character above
mentioned.

III. PREFERENCE STOCK

III.A. Provisions Generally Applicable to Preference Stock

III.A.(i) The Preference Stock may be issued from time to time by
the Board of Directors as shares of one or more series. Subject to the
provisions hereof and the limitations prescribed by law, the Board of Directors
is expressly authorized, prior to issuance, by adopting resolutions providing
for the issuance of shares of any particular series and, if and to the extent
from time to time required by law, by filing a certificate pursuant to the
Delaware Law (or other laws hereafter in effect relating to the same or
substantially similar subject matter), to establish the number of shares to be
included in each such series and to fix the designations, relative rights,
preferences and limitations of the shares of each such series. The authority of
the Board of Directors with respect to each series shall include, but not be
limited to, determination of the following:


7

and the number of shares constituting such series (provided that the
aggregate number of shares constituting all series of Preference
Stock shall not exceed 50,000,000);

(2) the dividend rate, or basis for determining such
rate, if any, on shares of such series, whether dividends shall be

redeemable and, if so, the terms and conditions of such redemption,
including the date or dates upon and after which such shares shall
be redeemable, and the amount per share payable in case of
redemption, which amount may vary under different conditions and at
different redemption dates;

(4) the obligation, if any, of the Corporation to retire
shares of such series pursuant to a sinking fund;

(5) whether shares of such series shall be convertible
into, or exchangeable for, shares of stock of any other class or

the terms and conditions of such conversion or exchange, including
the price or prices or the rate or rates of conversion or exchange

of voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up
of the Corporation;

III.B. Series One ESOP Convertible Preference Stock

The number of shares, the designation, the relative rights, the
preferences and the limitations of the Series One ESOP Convertible Preference
Stock of the Corporation are as follows:

III.B.(i) Designation and Amount; Special Purpose
Restricted Transfer Issue

(1) The shares of this series of Preference Stock shall be
designated as Series One ESOP Convertible Preference Stock ("Series One
Preference Stock") and the number of shares constituting such series shall be
6,688,494.

(2) Shares of Series One Preference Stock shall be issued only to a
trustee acting on behalf of an employee stock ownership plan or other employee
benefit plan of the Corporation. In the event of any transfer of shares of
Series One Preference Stock to any person other than (a) the issuance of Series
One Preference Stock to any such plan trustee or (b) a distribution of Series
One Preference Stock by any such plan trustee to a participant in any such plan
in satisfaction of the distribution requirements of any such plan or any
investment elections provided to participants pursuant to any such plan, the
shares of Series One Preference Stock so transferred, upon such transfer and
without any further action by the Corporation or the holder, shall be
automatically converted into shares of Common Stock on the terms otherwise
provided for the conversion of shares of Series One Preference Stock into shares
of Common Stock pursuant to Section III.B.(v) hereof and no such transferee
shall have any of the voting powers, preferences and relative, participating,
optional or special rights ascribed to shares of Series One Preference Stock
hereunder but, rather, only the powers and rights pertaining to the Common Stock
into which such shares of Series One Preference Stock shall be so converted.
Certificates representing shares of Series One Preference Stock shall be
legended to reflect such restrictions on transfer. Notwithstanding the foregoing
provisions of this Section III.B.(i)(2), shares of Series One Preference Stock
(a) may be converted into shares of Common Stock as provided by Section
III.B.(v) hereof and the shares of Common Stock issued upon such conversion may
be transferred by the holder thereof as permitted by law and (b) shall be
redeemable by the Corporation upon the terms and conditions provided by Sections
III.B.(vi), (vii) and (viii) hereof.

III.B.(ii) Dividends and Distributions

(1) Subject to the provisions for adjustment hereinafter set forth,
the holders of shares of Series One Preference Stock shall be entitled to
receive, when, as and if declared by the Board of Directors out of funds legally
available therefor, cash dividends ("Preference Dividends") in an amount per
share equal to the greater of (a) the sum of the aggregate amounts of regular
cash dividends paid during the periods ending on December 31, 1989, October 31,
1990, October 31, 1991, October 31, 1992 and December 31, 1993 in each year
thereafter (each a "Dividend Payment Date") on the number of shares of Common
Stock into


9

which one share of Series One Preference Stock could be converted pursuant to
Section III.B.(v) hereof, calculated on the basis of the Conversion Price (as
defined in Section III.B.(v) hereof and as adjusted from time to time pursuant
to Section III.B.(ix) hereof) in effect on each record date for any such regular
quarterly cash dividends on Common Stock paid during such one year period, and
(b) $3.90 per share per annum, and no more; provided that the first dividend on
the Series One Preference Stock shall be $3.63. For purposes of this Section
III.B.(ii)(1), "regular cash dividends" on the Common Stock shall mean any cash
dividends on the Common Stock which are not "Extraordinary Distributions" as
defined in Section III.B.(ix)(7). Preference Dividends shall be payable
annually, on each Dividend Payment Date, commencing on the Dividend Payment Date
in 1989, to holders of record at the start of business on such Dividend Payment
Date. Preference Dividends shall begin to accrue on outstanding shares of Series
One Preference Stock from the date of issuance of such shares of Series One
Preference Stock. The amount of Preference Dividends accrued as of any date on
each share of Series One Preference Stock shall be equal to the greater of (x)
the sum of the aggregate amounts of regular cash dividends paid during the
period beginning on the most current previous Dividend Payment Date and ending
on the date as of which accrual is being determined on the number of shares of
Common Stock into which one share of Series One Preference Stock could be
converted pursuant to Section III.B.(v) hereof, calculated as provided in clause
(a) above, and (y) $3.90 per annum accrued on a daily basis (whether or not the
Corporation shall have surplus at the time) for the period beginning on the most
recent previous Dividend Payment Date and ending on the date as of which accrual
is being determined, computed for any period less than a full annual period
between Dividend Payment Dates on the basis of a 360 day year of 30 day months;
provided that a total dividend payment of $3.63 per share shall accrue for the
period from the date of issuance of the Series One Preference Stock until
December 31, 1989. Accumulated but unpaid Preference Dividends shall cumulate as
of the Dividend Payment Date on which they first become payable, but no interest
shall accrue on accumulated but unpaid Preference Dividends.

(2) So long as any Series One Preference Stock shall be outstanding,
no dividend shall be declared or paid or set apart for payment on any other
series of stock ranking on a parity with the Series One Preference Stock as to
dividends, unless there shall also be or have been declared and paid or set
apart for payment on the Series One Preference Stock, like dividends for all
dividend payment periods of the Series One Preference Stock ending on or before
the dividend payment date of such parity stock, ratably in proportion to the
respective amounts of dividends accumulated and unpaid through such dividend
payment period on the Series One Preference Stock and accumulated and unpaid or
payable on such parity stock through the dividend payment period on such parity
stock next preceding such dividend payment date. In the event that full
cumulative dividends on the Series One Preference Stock have not been declared
and paid or set apart for payment when due, the Corporation shall not declare or
pay or set apart for payment any dividends or make any other distributions on,
or make any payment on account of the purchase, redemption or other retirement
of any other class of stock or series thereof of the Corporation ranking, as to
dividends or as to distributions in the event of a liquidation, dissolution or
winding-up of the Corporation, junior


10

to the Series One Preference Stock until full cumulative dividends on the Series
One Preference Stock shall have been paid or declared and provided for;
provided, however, that the foregoing shall not apply to (a) any dividend
payable solely in any shares of any stock ranking, as to dividends or as to
distributions in the event of a liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the
Corporation, junior to the Series One Preference Stock, or (b) the acquisition
of shares of any stock ranking, as to dividends or as to distributions in the
event of a liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the Corporation, junior to
the Series One Preference Stock either (x) pursuant to any employee or director
incentive or benefit plan or arrangement (including any employment, severance or
consulting agreement) of the Corporation or any subsidiary of the Corporation
heretofore or hereafter adopted or (y) in exchange solely for shares of any
other stock ranking junior to the Series One Preference Stock.

III.B.(iii) Voting Rights

The holders of shares of Series One Preference Stock shall have the
following voting rights:

(1) The holders of Series One Preference Stock shall be entitled to
vote on all matters submitted to a vote of the holders of Common Stock of the
Corporation, voting together with the holders of Common Stock as one class. Each
share of the Series One Preference Stock shall be entitled to the number of
votes equal to the number of shares of Common Stock into which such share of
Series One Preference Stock could be converted on the record date for
determining the stockholders entitled to vote, rounded to the nearest one-tenth
of a vote; it being understood that whenever the "Conversion Price" (as defined
in Section III.B.(v) hereof) is adjusted as provided in Section III.B.(ix)
hereof, the voting rights of the Series One Preference Stock shall also be
similarly adjusted.

(2) Except as otherwise required by law or set forth herein, holders
of Series One Preference Stock shall have no special voting rights and their
consent shall not be required (except to the extent they are entitled to vote
with holders of Common Stock as set forth herein) for the taking of any
corporate action; provided, however, that the vote of at least 66- 2/3% of the
outstanding shares of Series One Preference Stock, voting separately as a
series, shall be necessary to adopt any alteration, amendment or repeal of any
provision of the Certificate of Incorporation of the Corporation, as amended
(including any such alteration, amendment or repeal effected by any merger or
consolidation in which the Corporation is the surviving or resulting
corporation), if such amendment, alteration or repeal would alter or change the
powers, preferences or special rights of the shares of Series One Preference
Stock so as to affect them adversely. The authorization or issuance of
additional Common Stock, Preference Stock or Preferred Stock shall be deemed not
to affect the powers, preferences and special rights of the Series One
Preference Stock adversely for purposes of the preceding sentence.


11

III.B.(iv) Liquidation, Dissolution or Winding Up

(1) Upon any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or
winding up of the Corporation, the holders of Series One Preference Stock shall
be entitled to receive out of assets of the Corporation which remain after
satisfaction in full of all valid claims of creditors of the Corporation and
which are available for payment to stockholders and subject to the rights of the
holders of any stock of the Corporation ranking senior to or on a parity with
the Series One Preference Stock in respect of distributions upon liquidation,
dissolution or winding up of the Corporation, before any amount shall be paid or
distributed among the holders of Common Stock or any other shares ranking junior
to the Series One Preference Stock in respect of distributions upon liquidation,
dissolution or winding up of the Corporation, liquidating distributions in the
amount of $53.45 per share, plus an amount equal to all accrued and unpaid
dividends thereon to the date fixed for distribution, and no more. If upon any
liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation, the amounts payable
with respect to the Series One Preference Stock and any other stock ranking as
to any such distribution on a parity with the Series One Preference Stock are
not paid in full, the holders of the Series One Preference Stock and such other
stock shall share ratably in any distribution of assets in proportion to the
full respective preferential amounts to which they are entitled. After payment
of the full amount to which they are entitled as provided by the foregoing
provisions of Section III.B.(iv)(1), the holders of shares of Series One
Preference Stock shall not be entitled to any further right or claim to any of
the remaining assets of the Corporation.

(2) Neither the merger or consolidation of the Corporation with or
into any other corporation, nor the merger or consolidation of any other
corporation with or into the Corporation, nor the sale, transfer or lease of all
or any portion of the assets of the Corporation, shall be deemed to be a
dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the affairs of the Corporation for
purposes of this Section III.B.(iv), but the holders of Series One Preference
Stock shall nevertheless be entitled in the event of any such merger or
consolidation to the rights provided by Section III.B.(viii) hereof.

(3) Written notice of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation,
dissolution or winding up of the Corporation, stating the payment date or dates
when, and the place or places where, the amounts distributable to holders of
Series One Preference Stock in such circumstances shall be payable, shall be
given by first-class mail, postage prepaid, mailed not less than twenty (20)
days prior to any payment date stated therein, to the holders of Series One
Preference Stock, at the address shown on the books of the Corporation or any
transfer agent for the Series One Preference Stock.

III.B.(v) Conversion into Common Stock.

(1) A holder of shares of Series One Preference Stock shall be
entitled, at any time prior to the close of business on the date fixed for
redemption of such shares pursuant to Sections III.B.(vi), (vii) or (viii)
hereof, to cause any or all of such shares to be converted into
shares of Common Stock, initially at a conversion rate equal to the ratio of
$53.45 to the amount which initially shall be $53.45 and which shall be adjusted
as hereinafter provided (and, as so adjusted, is hereinafter sometimes referred
to as the "Conversion Price") (that is, a conversion rate initially equivalent
to one share of Common Stock for each share of Series One Preference Stock so
converted but that is subject to adjustment as the Conversion Price is adjusted
as hereinafter provided).

(2) Any holder of shares of Series One Preference Stock desiring to
convert such shares into shares of Common Stock shall surrender the certificate
or certificates representing the shares of Series One Preference Stock being
converted, duly assigned or endorsed for transfer to the Corporation (or
accompanied by duly executed stock powers relating thereto), at the principal
executive office of the Corporation or the offices of the transfer agent for the
Series One Preference Stock or such office or offices in the continental United
States of an agent for conversion as may from time to time be designated by
notice to the holders of the Series One Preference Stock by the Corporation or
the transfer agent for the Series One Preference Stock, accompanied by written
notice of conversion. Such notice of conversion shall specify (a) the number of
shares of Series One Preference Stock to be converted and the name or names in
which such holder wishes the certificate or certificates for Common Stock and
for any shares of Series One Preference Stock not to be so converted to be
issued, and (b) the address to which such holder wishes delivery to be made of
such new certificates to be issued upon such conversion.

(3) Upon surrender of a certificate representing a share or shares
of Series One Preference Stock for conversion, the Corporation shall prepare and
send by hand delivery (with receipt to be acknowledged) or by first class mail,
postage prepaid, to the holder thereof or to such holder's designee, at the
address designated by such holder, a certificate or certificates for the number
of shares of Common Stock to which such holder shall be entitled upon
conversion. In the event that there shall have been surrendered a certificate or
certificates representing shares of Series One Preference Stock, only part of
which are to be converted, the Corporation shall issue and deliver to such
holder or such holder's designee a new certificate or certificates representing
the number of shares of Series One Preference Stock which shall not have been
converted.

(4) The conversion into Common Stock of shares of Series One
Preference Stock at the option of the holder thereof shall be effective as of
the earlier of (a) the delivery to such holder or such holder's designee of the
certificates representing the shares of Common Stock deliverable upon conversion
thereof or (b) the commencement of business on the second business day after the
surrender of the certificate or certificates for the shares of Series One
Preference Stock to be converted, duly assigned or endorsed for transfer to the
Corporation (or accompanied by duly executed stock powers relating thereto) as
provided by this Section III.B(v). On and after the effective day of conversion,
the person or persons entitled to receive the Common Stock deliverable upon such
conversion shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder or holders of
such shares of Common Stock, but no allowance or


13

adjustment shall be made in respect of dividends payable to holders of Common
Stock in respect of any period prior to such effective date. The Corporation
shall not be obligated to pay any dividends which shall have been declared and
shall be payable to holders of shares of Series One Preference Stock on a
Dividend Payment Date if such Dividend Payment Date for such dividend shall
coincide with or be on or subsequent to the effective date of conversion of such
shares.

(5) The Corporation shall not be obligated to deliver to holders of
Series One Preference Stock any fractional share or shares of Common Stock
deliverable upon any conversion of such shares of Series One Preference Stock,
but in lieu thereof may make a cash payment in respect thereof in any manner
permitted by law.

(6) The Corporation shall at all times reserve and keep available
out of its authorized and unissued Common Stock, or out of Common Stock held in
its treasury, solely for delivery upon the conversion of shares of Series One
Preference Stock as herein provided, free from any preemptive rights, such
number of shares of Common Stock as shall from time to time be deliverable upon
the conversion of all the shares of Series One Preference Stock then
outstanding. The Corporation shall prepare and shall use its best efforts to
obtain and keep in force such governmental or regulatory permits or other
authorizations as may be required by law, and shall comply with all requirements
as to registration or qualification of the Common Stock, in order to enable the
Corporation lawfully to deliver to each holder of record of Series One
Preference Stock such number of shares of its Common Stock as shall from time to
time be sufficient to effect the conversion of all shares of Series One
Preference Stock then outstanding and convertible into shares of Common Stock.

III.B.(vi) Redemption At the Option of the Corporation

(1) The Series One Preference Stock shall be redeemable, in whole or
in part, at the option of the Corporation at any time at the following
redemption prices per share, except that no such redemption at the option of the
corporation may be made prior to June 23, 1991 unless the Fair Market Value of
the Common Stock as of the date on which notice of redemption is first mailed
pursuant to Section III.B.(vi)(2) below shall be at least 130% of the then
current Conversion Price. The Fair Market Value of the Common Stock shall be
determined as provided in Section III.B.(ix)(7), except that for purposes of
this Section III.B.(vi)(1) the Adjustment Period used in calculating such Fair
Market Value shall be deemed to be the twenty (20) consecutive trading days
ending upon but excluding, the date on which notice of redemption is first
mailed:

accrued and unpaid dividends thereon to the date fixed for redemption. Payment
of the redemption price shall be made by the Corporation in cash or shares of
Common Stock, or a combination thereof, as permitted by Section III.B.(vi)(4).
From and after the date fixed for redemption, dividends on shares of Series One
Preference Stock called for redemption will cease to accrue, such shares will no
longer be deemed to be outstanding and all rights in respect of such shares of
the Corporation shall cease, except the right to receive the redemption price.
If less than all of the outstanding shares of Series One Preference Stock are to
be redeemed, the Corporation shall either redeem a portion of the shares of each
holder determined pro rata based on the number of shares held by each holder or
shall select the shares to be redeemed by lot, as may be determined by the Board
of Directors of the Corporation.

(2) Unless otherwise required by law, notice of redemption will be
sent to the holders of Series One Preference Stock at the address shown on the
books of the Corporation or any transfer agent for the Series One Preference
Stock by first class mail, postage prepaid, mailed not less than twenty (20)
days nor more than sixty (60) days prior to the redemption date. Each such
notice shall state: (a) the redemption date; (b) the total number of shares of
the Series One Preference Stock to be redeemed and, if fewer than all the shares
held by such holder are to be redeemed, the number of such shares to be redeemed
from such holder; (c) the redemption price and the form of payment thereof; (d)
the place or places where certificates for such shares are to be surrendered for
payment of the redemption price; (e) that dividends on the shares to be redeemed
will cease to accrue on such redemption date; and (f) the conversion rights of
the shares to be redeemed, the period within which conversion rights may be
exercised, and the Conversion Price and number of shares of Common Stock
issuable upon conversion of a share of Series One Preference Stock at the time.
Upon surrender of the certificates for any shares so called for redemption and
not previously converted (properly endorsed or assigned for transfer, if the
Board of Directors of the Corporation shall so require and the notice shall so
state), such shares shall be redeemed by the Corporation at the date fixed for
redemption and at the redemption price set forth in this Section III.B.(vi).


15

(3) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Section
III.B.(vi)(1), the Corporation may from time to time, in its sole discretion,
elect to redeem, upon notice as required in Section III.B.(vi)(2), all or part
of the shares of Series One Preference Stock at a price equal to the amount
payable in respect of such shares upon liquidation of the Corporation pursuant
to Section III.B.(iv) hereof (except that any redemption pursuant to clause (d)
below shall be at a price equal to the price payable upon redemption at the
option of the Corporation pursuant to Section III.B.(vi)(1) plus all accrued and
unpaid dividends to the date fixed for redemption) upon any of the following:

(a) In the event of a change in the federal tax law of the United
States of America which has the effect of precluding the Corporation
from claiming any of the tax deductions for dividends paid on the
Series One Preference Stock when such dividends are used as provided
under Section 404(k)(2) of the Internal Revenue code of 1986, as
amended (the "Code") and in effect on the date the shares of Series
One Preference Stock are initially issued; provided that notice of
any redemption pursuant to this clause (a) shall be given not more
than 90 days following the later of the effectiveness or the
adoption of any such change in the federal tax law of the United
States of America; or

(b) In the event of a determination by the Internal Revenue Service
that the Melville Corporation and Subsidiaries Employee Stock
Ownership Plan, dated as of January 1, 1989, as amended, or any
successor plan ("the Plan"), as the same may be amended, is not
qualified within the meaning of Section 401(a) or is not an employee
stock ownership plan within the meaning of Section 4975(e)(7) of the
Code; or

(c) If the exclusion of interest received by any lender on any
borrowings by the trustee of the Plan from the lender's income
pursuant to Section 133 or any successor provision of the Code is
reduced to a percentage amount less than fifty percent (50%);
provided that notice of any redemption pursuant to this clause (c)
shall be given not more than 90 days following the later of the
effectiveness or the adoption of any such reduction; or

(d) If the corporation terminates the Plan or terminates future
contributions to the Plan; or

(e) If any shares of Series One Preference Stock are transferred to
a participant in the Plan, but only any such shares so transferred
may be redeemed pursuant to this clause (e); or

(f) In the event and to the extent that redemption of Series One
Preference Stock is necessary or appropriate to provide for
satisfaction of any investment election provided to participants in
accordance with the Plan; or


16

(g) In the event and to the extent that redemption of Series One
Preference Stock is necessary or appropriate to provide for
distributions to be made to participants under the Plan.

(4) The Corporation, at its option, may make payment of the
redemption price required upon redemption of shares of Series One Preference
Stock pursuant to Section III.B.(vi)(1) above or clauses (a) through (f) of
Section III.B.(vi)(3) above in cash or in shares of Common Stock, or in a
combination of such shares and cash. The Corporation shall make payment of the
redemption price required upon redemption of shares of Series One Preference
Stock pursuant to clause (g) of Section III.B.(vi)(3) above in shares of Common
Stock, except that cash shall be paid in lieu of delivery of fractional shares.
Any shares of Common Stock delivered in payment of the redemption price pursuant
to this Section III.B.(vi) shall be valued for such purpose at their Fair Market
Value (as defined in Section III.B.(ix)(7) hereof, provided, however, that in
calculating their Fair Market Value the Adjustment Period shall be deemed to be
the five (5) consecutive trading days ending with, and including, the date of
redemption).

III.B.(vii) Other Redemption Rights

Shares of Series One Preference Stock shall be called for redemption
by the Corporation, through notice as required by Section III.B.(vi)(2), for
cash or, if the Corporation so elects, in shares of Common Stock, or a
combination of such shares and cash, any such shares of Common Stock to be
valued for such purpose as provided by Section III.B.(vi)(4), at a redemption
price of $53.45 per share plus accrued and unpaid dividends thereon to the date
fixed for redemption, at any time and from time to time when and to the extent
necessary to provide for payment of principal, interest or premium due and
payable (whether as scheduled or upon acceleration) on the 8.60% ESOP Notes Due
2008 of the trust under the Plan or any indebtedness incurred by the trustee for
the benefit of the Plan.

III.B.(viii) Consolidation, Merger, etc

(1) In the event that the Corporation shall consummate any
consolidation or merger or similar transaction, however named, pursuant to which
the outstanding shares of Common Stock are by operation of law exchanged solely
for or changed, reclassified or converted solely into stock of any successor or
resulting corporation (including the Corporation) that constitutes "qualifying
employer securities" with respect to a holder of Series One Preference Stock
within the meaning of Section 409(l) of the Code and Section 407(c)(5) of the
Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended, or any successor
provisions of law, and, if applicable, for a cash payment in lieu of fractional
shares, if any, the shares of Series One Preference Stock of such holder shall
be assumed by and shall become preferred stock of such successor or resulting
corporation, having in respect of such corporation insofar as possible the same
powers, preferences and relative, participating, optional or other special
rights (including the redemption rights provided by Sections III.B.(vi), (vii)
and (viii) hereof),


17

and the qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereon, that the Series One
Preference Stock had immediately prior to such transaction, except that after
such transaction each share of the Series One Preference Stock shall be
convertible, otherwise on the terms and conditions provided by Section III.B.(v)
hereof, into the qualifying employer securities so receivable by a holder of the
number of shares of Common Stock into which such shares of Series One Preference
Stock could have been converted immediately prior to such transaction if such
holder of Common Stock failed to exercise any rights of election to receive any
kind or amount of stock, securities, cash or other property (other than such
qualifying employer securities and a cash payment, if applicable, in lieu of
fractional shares) receivable upon such transaction (provided that, if the kind
or amount of qualifying employer securities receivable upon such transaction is
not the same for each non-electing share, then the kind and amount of qualifying
employer securities receivable upon such transaction for each non-electing share
shall be the kind and amount so receivable per share by a plurality of the
non-electing shares). The rights of the Series One Preference Stock as preferred
stock of such successor or resulting company shall successively be subject to
adjustments pursuant to Section III.B.(ix) hereof after any such transaction as
nearly as possible equivalent to the adjustments provided for by such section
prior to such transaction. The Corporation shall not consummate any such merger,
consolidation or similar transaction unless all then outstanding shares of the
Series One Preference Stock shall be assumed and authorized by the successor or
resulting company as aforesaid.

(2) In the event that the Corporation shall consummate any
consolidation or merger or similar transaction, however named, pursuant to which
the outstanding shares of Common Stock are by operation of law exchanged for or
changed, reclassified or converted into other stock or securities or cash or any
other property, or any combination thereof, other than any such consideration
which is constituted solely of qualifying employer securities (as referred to in
Section III.B.(viii)(1)) and cash payments, if applicable, in lieu of fractional
shares, then the Corporation shall, at least twenty (20) days before
consummation of such transaction, give notice of such agreement and the material
terms thereof to each holder of Series One Preference Stock and the Corporation
shall simultaneously call for redemption, through notice as required by Section
III.B.(vi)(2), for cash at a redemption price equal to the amount payable in
respect of such shares upon liquidation of the Corporation pursuant to Section
III.B.(iv), all of the then outstanding shares of Series One Preferred Stock.

III.B.(ix) Anti-dilution Adjustments

(1) In the event the Corporation shall, at any time or from time to
time while any of the shares of the Series One Preference Stock are outstanding,
(a) pay a dividend or make a distribution in respect of the Common Stock in
shares of Common Stock, (b) subdivide the outstanding shares of Common Stock, or
(c) combine the outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of
shares, in each case whether by reclassification of shares, recapitalization of
the Corporation (including a recapitalization effected by a merger or
consolidation to which Section III.B.(viii) hereof does not apply) or otherwise,
the


18

Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to such action shall be adjusted by
multiplying such Conversion Price by the fraction the numerator of which is the
number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately before such event and
the denominator of which is the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding
immediately after such event. An adjustment made pursuant to this Section
III.B.(ix)(1) shall be given effect, upon payment of such a dividend or
distribution, as of the record date for the determination of stockholders
entitled to receive such dividend or distribution (on a retroactive basis) and
in the case of a subdivision or combination shall become effective immediately
as of the effective date thereof.

(2) In the event that the Corporation shall, at any time or from
time to time while any of the shares of Series One Preference Stock are
outstanding, issue to holders of shares of Common Stock as a dividend or
distribution, including by way of a reclassification of shares or a
recapitalization of the Corporation, any right or warrant to purchase shares of
Common Stock (but not including as such a right or warrant any security
convertible into or exchangeable for shares of Common Stock) at a purchase price
per share less than the Fair Market Value (as hereinafter defined) of a share of
Common Stock on the date of issuance of such right or warrant, then, subject to
the provisions of Sections III.B.(ix)(5) and III.B.(ix)(6), the Conversion Price
shall be adjusted by multiplying such Conversion Price by the fraction the
numerator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding
immediately before such issuance of rights or warrants plus the number of shares
of Common Stock which could be purchased at the Fair Market Value of a share of
Common Stock at the time of such issuance for the maximum aggregate
consideration payable upon exercise in full of all such rights or warrants and
the denominator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock
outstanding immediately before such issuance of rights or warrants plus the
maximum number of shares of Common Stock that could be acquired upon exercise in
full of all such rights and warrants.

(3) In the event the Corporation shall, at any time or from time to
time while any of the shares of Series One Preference Stock are outstanding,
issue, sell or exchange shares of Common Stock (other than pursuant to any right
or warrant to purchase or acquire shares of Common Stock (including as such a
right or warrant any security convertible into or exchangeable for shares of
Common Stock) and other than pursuant to any employee or director incentive or
benefit plan or arrangement, including any employment, severance or consulting
agreement, of the Corporation or any subsidiary of the Corporation heretofore or
hereafter adopted) for a consideration having a Fair Market Value on the date of
such issuance, sale or exchange less than the Fair Market Value of such shares
on the date of such issuance, sale or exchange, then, subject to the provisions
of Sections III.B.(ix)(5) and III.B.(ix)(6), the Conversion Price shall be
adjusted by multiplying such Conversion Price by the fraction the numerator of
which shall be the sum of (a) the Fair Market Value of all the shares of Common
Stock outstanding on the day immediately preceding the first public announcement
of such issuance, sale or exchange plus (b) the Fair Market Value of the
consideration received by the Corporation in respect of such issuance, sale or
exchange of shares of Common Stock, and the denominator of which shall be the
product of (a) the Fair


19

Market Value of a share of Common Stock on the day immediately preceding the
first public announcement of such issuance, sale or exchange multiplied by (b)
the sum of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding on such day plus the
number of shares of Common Stock so issued, sold or exchanged by the
Corporation. In the event the Corporation shall, at any time or from time to
time while any shares of Series One Preference Stock are outstanding, issue,
sell or exchange any right or warrant to purchase or acquire shares of Common
Stock (including as such a right or warrant any security convertible into or
exchangeable for shares of Common Stock), other than any such issuance to
holders of shares of Common Stock as a dividend or distribution (including by
way of a reclassification of shares or a recapitalization of the Corporation)
and other than pursuant to any employee or director incentive or benefit plan or
arrangement (including any employment, severance or consulting agreement) of the
Corporation or any subsidiary of the Corporation heretofore or hereafter
adopted, for a consideration having a Fair Market Value on the date of such
issuance, sale or exchange less than the Non-Dilutive Amount (as hereinafter
defined), then, subject to the provisions of Sections III.B.(ix)(5) and
III.B.(ix)(6), the Conversion Price shall be adjusted by multiplying such
Conversion Price by a fraction the numerator of which shall be the sum of (a)
the Fair Market Value of all the shares of Common Stock outstanding on the day
immediately preceding the first public announcement of such issuance, sale or
exchange plus (b) the Fair Market Value of the consideration received by the
Corporation in respect of such issuance, sale or exchange of such right or
warrant plus (c) the Fair Market Value at the time of such issuance of the
consideration which the Corporation would receive upon exercise in full of all
such rights or warrants, and the denominator of which shall be the product of
(a) the Fair Market Value of a share of Common Stock on the day immediately
preceding the first public announcement of such issuance, sale or exchange
multiplied by (b) the sum of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding on
such day plus the maximum number of shares of Common Stock which could be
acquired pursuant to such right or warrant at the time of the issuance, sale or
exchange of such right or warrant (assuming shares of Common Stock could be
acquired pursuant to such right or warrant at such time).

(4) In the event the Corporation shall, at any time or from time to
time while any of the shares of Series One Preference Stock are outstanding,
make an Extraordinary Distribution (as hereinafter defined) in respect of the
Common Stock, whether by dividend, distribution, reclassification of shares or
recapitalization of the Corporation (including a recapitalization or
reclassification effected by a merger or consolidation to which Section
III.B.(viii) hereof does not apply) or effect a Pro Rata Repurchase (as
hereinafter defined) of Common Stock, the Conversion Price in effect immediately
prior to such Extraordinary Distribution or Pro Rata Repurchase shall, subject
to Sections III.B.(ix)(5) and III.B.(ix)(6), be adjusted by multiplying such
Conversion Price by the fraction the numerator of which is (a) the product of
(x) the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately before such
Extraordinary Distribution or Pro Rata Repurchase multiplied by (y) the Fair
Market Value (as herein defined) of a share of Common Stock on the record date
with respect to an Extraordinary Distribution, or on the applicable expiration
date (including all extensions thereof) of any tender offer which is a Pro Rata
Repurchase, or on the date of purchase with


20

respect to any Pro Rata Repurchase which is not a tender offer, as the case may
be, minus (b) the Fair Market Value of the Extraordinary Distribution or the
aggregate purchase price of the Pro Rata Repurchase, as the case may be, and the
denominator of which shall be the product of (x) the number of shares of Common
Stock outstanding immediately before such Extraordinary Dividend or Pro Rata
Repurchase minus, in the case of a Pro Rata Repurchase, the number of shares of
Common Stock repurchased by the Corporation multiplied by (y) the Fair Market
Value of a share of Common Stock on the record date with respect to an
Extraordinary Distribution or on the applicable expiration date (including all
extensions thereof) of any tender offer which is a Pro Rata Repurchase or on the
date of purchase with respect to any Pro Rata Repurchase which is not a tender
offer, as the case may be. The Corporation shall send each holder of Series One
Preference Stock (a) notice of its intent to make any dividend or distribution
and (b) notice of any offer by the Corporation to make a Pro Rata Repurchase, in
each case at the same time as, or as soon as practicable after, such offer is
first communicated (including by announcement of a record date in accordance
with the rules of any stock exchange on which the Common Stock is listed or
admitted to trading) to holders of Common Stock. Such notice shall indicate the
intended record date and the amount and nature of such dividend or distribution,
or the number of shares subject to such offer for a Pro Rata Repurchase and the
purchase price payable by the Corporation pursuant to such offer, as well as the
Conversion Price and the number of shares of Common Stock into which a share of
Series One Preference Stock may be converted at such time.

(5) Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Section III.B.(ix),
the Corporation shall not be required to make any adjustment of the Conversion
Price unless such adjustment would require an increase or decrease of at least
one percent (1%) in the Conversion Price. Any lesser adjustment shall be carried
forward and shall be made no later than the time of, and together with, the next
subsequent adjustment which, together with any adjustment or adjustments so
carried forward, shall amount to an increase or decrease of at least one percent
(1%) in the Conversion Price.

(6) If the Corporation shall make any dividend or distribution on
the Common Stock or issue any Common Stock, other capital stock or other
security of the Corporation or any rights or warrants to purchase or acquire any
such security, which transaction does not result in an adjustment to the
Conversion Price pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section
III.B.(ix), the Board of Directors of the Corporation shall consider whether
such action is of such a nature that an adjustment to the Conversion Price
should equitably be made in respect of such transaction. If in such case the
Board of Directors of the Corporation determines that an adjustment to the
Conversion Price should be made, an adjustment shall be made effective as of
such date as is determined by the Board of Directors of the Corporation. The
determination of the Board of Directors of the Corporation as to whether an
adjustment to the Conversion Price should be made pursuant to the foregoing
provisions of this Section III.B.(ix)(6), and, if so, as to what adjustment
should be made and when, shall be final and binding on the Corporation and all
stockholders of the Corporation. The Corporation shall be entitled to make such
additional adjustments in the Conversion Price, in addition to those


21

required by the foregoing provisions of this Section III.B.(ix), as shall be
necessary in order that any dividend or distribution in shares of capital stock
of the Corporation, subdivision, reclassification or combination of shares of
stock of the Corporation or any recapitalization of the Corporation shall not be
taxable to holders of the Common Stock.

(7) For purposes of this Section III.B.(ix), the following
definitions shall apply:

"Extraordinary Distribution" shall mean any dividend or other
distribution (effected while any of the shares of Series One Preference Stock
are outstanding) (a) of cash, where the aggregate amount of such cash dividend
or distribution together with the amount of all cash dividends and distributions
made during the preceding period of 12 months, when combined with the aggregate
amount of all Pro Rata Repurchases (for this purpose, including only that
portion of the aggregate purchase price of such Pro Rata Repurchase which is in
excess of the Fair Market Value of the Common Stock repurchased as determined on
the applicable expiration date (including all extensions thereof) of any tender
offer or exchange offer which is a Pro Rata Repurchase, or the date of purchase
with respect to any other Pro Rata Repurchase which is not a tender offer or
exchange offer made during such period), exceeds twelve and one-half percent
(12-1/2%) of the aggregate Fair Market Value of all shares of Common Stock
outstanding on the record date for determining the stockholders entitled to
receive such Extraordinary Distribution and (b) of any shares of capital stock
of the Corporation (other than shares of Common Stock), other securities of the
Corporation (other than securities of the type referred to in Section
III.B.(ix)(2)), evidences of indebtedness of the Corporation or any other person
or any other property (including shares of any subsidiary of the Corporation),
or any combination thereof. The Fair Market Value of an Extraordinary
Distribution for purposes of Section III.B.(ix)(4) shall be the sum of the Fair
Market Value of such Extraordinary Distribution plus the amount of any cash
dividends which are not Extraordinary Distributions made during such twelve
month period and not previously included in the calculation of an adjustment
pursuant to Section III.B.(ix)(4).

"Fair Market Value" shall mean, as to shares of Common Stock or any
other class of capital stock or securities of the Corporation or any other
issuer which are publicly traded, the average of the Current Market Prices (as
hereinafter defined) of such shares or securities for each day of the Adjustment
Period (as hereinafter defined). "Current Market Price" of publicly traded
shares of Common Stock or any other class of capital stock or other security of
the Corporation or any other issuer for a day shall mean the last reported sales
price, regular way, or, in case no sale takes place on such day, the average of
the reported closing bid and asked prices, regular way, in either case as
reported on the New York Stock Exchange Composite Tape or, if such security is
not listed or admitted to trading on the New York Stock Exchange, on the
principal national securities exchange on which such security is listed or
admitted to trading or, if not listed or admitted to trading on any national
securities exchange, on the NASDAQ National Market System or, if such security
is not quoted on such National Market System, the average of the closing bid and
asked prices on each such day in the over-the-counter market as reported by
NASDAQ or, if bid and asked prices for such


22

security on each such day shall not have been reported through NASDAQ, the
average of the bid and asked prices for such day as furnished by any New York
Stock Exchange member firm regularly making a market in such security selected
for such purpose by the Board of Directors of the Corporation or a committee
thereof on each trading day during the Adjustment Period. "Adjustment Period"
shall mean the period of five (5) consecutive trading days, selected by the
Board of Directors of the Corporation or a committee thereof, during the 20
trading days ending with, and including, the date as of which the Fair Market
Value of a security is to be determined; provided that such period of five
consecutive trading days shall end prior to the date on which such security
begins to trade "ex dividend" with respect to any dividend or distribution
giving rise to an adjustment under this Section III.B.(ix). The "Fair Market
Value" of any security which is not publicly traded or of any other property
shall mean the fair value thereof as determined by an independent investment
banking or appraisal firm experienced in the valuation of such securities or
property selected in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Corporation or
a committee thereof, or, if no such investment banking or appraisal firm is in
the good faith judgment of the Board of Directors or such committee available to
make such determination, as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors
of the Corporation or such committee.

"Non-Dilutive Amount" in respect of an issuance, sale or exchange by
the Corporation of any right or warrant to purchase or acquire shares of Common
Stock (including any security convertible into or exchangeable for shares of
Common Stock) shall mean the remainder of (a) the product of the Fair Market
Value of a share of Common Stock on the day preceding the first public
announcement of such issuance, sale or exchange multiplied by the maximum number
of shares of Common Stock which could be acquired on such date upon the exercise
in full of such rights and warrants (including upon the conversion or exchange
of all such convertible or exchangeable securities), whether or not exercisable
(or convertible or exchangeable) at such date, minus (b) the aggregate amount
payable pursuant to such right or warrant to purchase or acquire such maximum
number of shares of Common Stock; provided, however, that in no event shall the
Non-Dilutive Amount be less than zero. For purposes of the foregoing sentence,
in the case of a security convertible into or exchangeable for shares of Common
Stock, the amount payable pursuant to a right or warrant to purchase or acquire
shares of Common Stock shall be the Fair Market Value of such security on the
date of the issuance, sale or exchange of such security by the Corporation.

"Pro Rata Repurchase" shall mean any purchase of shares of Common
Stock by the Corporation or any subsidiary thereof, whether for cash, shares of
capital stock of the Corporation, other securities of the Corporation, evidences
of indebtedness of the Corporation or any other person or any other property
(including shares of a subsidiary of the Corporation), or any combination
thereof, effected while any of the shares of Series One Preference Stock are
outstanding, pursuant to any tender offer or exchange offer subject to Section
13(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"),
or any successor provision of law, or pursuant to any other offer available to
substantially all holders of Common Stock; provided, however, that no purchase
of shares by the Corporation


23

or any subsidiary thereof shall be deemed a Pro Rata Repurchase if made (a) in
open market transactions or (b) pursuant to a single tender offer subject to
Section 13(e) of the Securities Exchange Act commenced prior to December 31,
1989, but any purchase made in such a tender offer shall only be deemed not to
be a Pro Rata Repurchase to the extent that the aggregate amount used to
purchase Common Stock in such tender offer does not exceed $357,500,000. For
purposes of this subsection (ix)(7), shares shall be deemed to have been
purchased by the Corporation or any subsidiary thereof "in open market
transactions" if they have been purchased substantially in accordance with the
requirements of Rule 10b-18 as in effect under the Exchange Act, on the date
shares of Series One Preference Stock are initially issued by the Corporation or
on such other terms and conditions as the Board of Directors of the Corporation
or a committee thereof shall have determined are reasonably designed to prevent
such purchases from having a material effect on the trading market for the
Common Stock.

(8) Whenever an adjustment to the Conversion Price and the related
voting rights of the Series One Preference Stock is required pursuant to this
Section III.B.(ix), the Corporation shall forthwith place on file with the
transfer agent for the Common Stock and the Series One Preference Stock if there
be one, and with the Secretary of the Corporation, a statement signed by two
officers of the Corporation stating the adjusted Conversion Price determined as
provided herein and the resulting conversion ratio, and the voting rights (as
appropriately adjusted), of the Series One Preference Stock. Such statement
shall set forth in reasonable detail such facts as shall be necessary to show
the reason and the manner of computing such adjustment, including any
determination of Fair Market Value involved in such computation. Promptly after
each adjustment to the Conversion Price and the related voting rights of the
Series One Preference Stock, the Corporation shall mail a notice thereof and of
the then prevailing conversion ratio to each holder of shares of the Series One
Preference Stock.

III.B.(x) Ranking; Retirement of Shares

(1) The Series One Preference Stock shall rank senior to the Common
Stock as to the payment of dividends and the distribution of assets on
liquidation, dissolution and winding up of the Corporation. The Series One
Preference Stock shall rank on a parity with all other series of the
Corporation's Preference Stock as to the payment of dividends and the
distribution of assets on liquidation, dissolution and winding up of the
Corporation. Unless otherwise provided in the Certificate of Incorporation of
the Corporation, as amended, the Series One Preference Stock shall rank junior
to all other series of the Corporation's Preferred Stock as to the payment of
dividends and the distribution of assets on liquidation, dissolution or winding
up of the Corporation.

(2) Any shares of Series One Preference Stock acquired by the
Corporation by reason of the conversion or redemption of such shares as provided
by this Section III.B., or otherwise so acquired, shall be retired as shares of
Series One Preference Stock and restored


24

to the status of authorized but unissued shares of preference stock, $1.00 par
value, of the Corporation, undesignated as to series, and may thereafter be
reissued as part of a new series of such Preference Stock as permitted by law.

III.B.(xi) Miscellaneous

(1) All notices referred to herein shall be in writing, and all
notices hereunder shall be deemed to have been given upon the earlier of receipt
thereof or three (3) business days after the mailing thereof if sent by
registered mail (unless first-class mail shall be specifically permitted for
such notice under the terms of this Resolution) with postage prepaid, addressed:
(a) if to the Corporation, to its office as specified in its most recent Annual
Report on Form 10-K (or any successor report or form) or to the transfer agent
for the Series One Preference Stock, or other agent of the Corporation
designated as permitted by this Section III.B. or (b) if to any holder of the
Series One Preference Stock or Common Stock, as the case may be, to such holder
at the address of such holder as listed in the stock record books of the
Corporation (which may include the records of any transfer agent for the Series
One Preference Stock or Common Stock, as the case may be) or (c) to such other
address as the Corporation or any such holder, as the case may be, shall have
designated by notice similarly given.

(2) The term "Common Stock" as used in this Section III.B. means the
Corporation's Common Stock of par value $.01, as the same exists at the date of
filing of this Certificate of Amendment of the Certificate of Incorporation of
the Corporation relating to Series One Preference Stock or any other class of
stock resulting from successive changes or reclassifications of such Common
Stock consisting solely of changes in par value, or from par value to no par
value, or from no par value to par value. In the event that, at any time as a
result of an adjustment made pursuant to Section III.B.(ix), the holder of any
shares of the Series One Preference Stock upon thereafter surrendering such
shares for conversion shall become entitled to receive any shares or other
securities of the Corporation other than shares of Common Stock, the Conversion
Price in respect of such other shares or securities so receivable upon
conversion of shares of Series One Preference Stock shall thereafter be
adjusted, and shall be subject to further adjustment from time to time, in a
manner and on terms as nearly equivalent as practicable to the provisions with
respect to Common Stock contained in Section III.B.(ix) hereof, and the
provisions of Sections (i) through (viii) and (x) and (xi) of this Article
Fourth.III.B. with respect to the Common Stock shall apply on like or similar
terms to any such other shares or securities.

(3) The Corporation shall pay any and all stock transfer and
documentary stamp taxes that may be payable in respect of any issuance or
delivery of shares of Series One Preference Stock or shares of Common Stock or
other securities issued on account of Series One Preference Stock pursuant
hereto or certificates representing such shares or securities. The Corporation
shall not, however, be required to pay any such tax which may be payable in
respect of any transfer involved in the issuance or delivery of shares of Series
One Preference


25

Stock or Common Stock or other securities in a name other than that in which the
shares of Series One Preference Stock with respect to which such shares or other
securities are issued or delivered were registered, or in respect of any payment
to any person with respect to any such shares or securities other than a payment
to the registered holder thereof, and shall not be required to make any such
issuance, delivery or payment unless and until the person otherwise entitled to
such issuance, delivery or payment has paid to the Corporation the amount of any
such tax or has established, to the satisfaction of the Corporation, that such
tax has been paid or is not payable.

(4) In the event that a holder of shares of Series One Preference
Stock shall not by written notice designate the name in which shares of Common
Stock to be issued upon conversion of such shares should be registered or to
whom payment upon redemption of shares of Series One Preference Stock should be
made or the address to which the certificate or certificates representing such
shares, or such payment, should be sent, the Corporation shall be entitled to
register such shares, and make such payment, in the name of the holder of such
Series One Preference Stock as shown on the records of the Corporation and to
send the certificate or certificates representing such shares, or such payment,
to the address of such holder shown on the records of the Corporation.

(5) Unless otherwise provided in the Certificate of Incorporation,
as amended, of the Corporation, all payments in the form of dividends,
distributions on voluntary or involuntary dissolution, liquidation or winding-up
or otherwise made upon the shares of Series One Preference Stock and any other
stock ranking on a parity with the Series One Preference Stock with respect to
such dividend or distribution shall be made pro rata, so that amounts paid per
share on the Series One Preference Stock and such other stock shall in all cases
bear to each other the same ratio that the required dividends, distributions or
payments, as the case may be, then payable per share on the shares of the Series
One Preference Stock and such other stock bear to each other.

(6) The Corporation may appoint, and from time to time discharge and
change, a transfer agent for the Series One Preference Stock. Upon any such
appointment or discharge of a transfer agent, the Corporation shall send notice
thereof by first-class mail, postage prepaid, to each holder of record of Series
One Preference Stock.

FIFTH: (i) In addition to any affirmative vote required by law or
otherwise, the affirmative vote of the holders of at least 66 2/3% of the
outstanding shares of Voting Stock, voting together as a single class, held by
stockholders other than a Related Person shall be required for the approval,
authorization or effectuation directly or indirectly, of any Business

dividends, to the extent necessary to prevent any such

RESOLVED, that as soon as practicable, pursuant to the DGCL, the Corporation shall cause Merger Subsidiary to be incorporated and organized and thereafter merged (the “Merger”) with and into the Corporation, whereupon the separate existence of Merger Subsidiary shall cease, and the Corporation shall be the surviving corporation (the “Surviving Corporation”);

RESOLVED, that the Merger is hereby approved and authorized pursuant to the provisions of Section 253 of the DGCL;

RESOLVED, that the Merger shall become effective upon the filing of the Certificate of Ownership and Merger with the secretary of State of the State of Delaware (the time of such effectiveness being the “Effective Time”);

RESOLVED, that the directors of the Corporation immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be the directors of the Surviving Corporation, and the officers of the Corporation immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be the officers of the Surviving Corporation;

RESOLVED, that, the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Corporation as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be the certificate of incorporation of the Surviving Corporation, except that Article First of the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation shall be amended at the Effective Time in the Merger to read in its entirety as follows: “FIRST: The name of the Corporation is CVS Caremark Corporation”, and as so amended shall be the certificate of incorporation of the Surviving Corporation until amended in accordance with applicable law;

RESOLVED, that the bylaws of the Corporation as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be the bylaws of the Surviving Corporation until amended in accordance with applicable law;

RESOLVED, that by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of any holder thereof, as of the Effective Time each outstanding share of capital stock of the Corporation shall remain unchanged and continue to remain outstanding as one share of the corresponding capital stock of the Surviving Corporation, held by the same holder who held such share immediately prior to the Effective Time;

RESOLVED, that at the Effective Time, a stock certificate that represented a share of capital stock of the Corporation immediately prior to the Effective Time shall continue to represent such corresponding share of capital stock of the Surviving Corporation as of the Effective Time;

RESOLVED, that at the Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of the holder thereof, each then outstanding share of capital stock of Merger Subsidiary shall be cancelled and no consideration shall be issued in respect thereof;

RESOLVED, that each of the Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Financial Officer, the Chief Legal Officer, any Executive Vice President, any Senior Vice President, any Vice President, the Treasurer or the Secretary (each, an “Authorized Officer”) is hereby authorized on behalf of the Corporation, to take any and all action, to execute and deliver any and all documents, agreements and instruments, to take any and all steps, to make all filings (including a Supplemental Listing Application with the New York Stock Exchange), to incur and pay all related fees and expenses, in each case as deemed by any such Authorized Officer to be necessary, appropriate or desirable to carry out the purpose and intent of each of the foregoing resolutions and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the filing of a Certificate of Ownership and Merger with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, and all actions heretofore taken by any of them in furtherance thereof are hereby ratified and confirmed in all respects; and
