EIGHTH.

 

 

(a)

The business and affairs of the Corporation shall be managed by or under the direction of the Board of Directors. Subject to any rights of the holders of any series of Preferred Stock to elect additional directors under specified circumstances, the number of directors that constitute the whole Board of Directors shall be such number as shall be fixed by, or in the manner provided in, the Bylaws of the Corporation. At each annual meeting of stockholders beginning in 2015, directors shall be elected annually for one-year terms expiring at the next succeeding annual meeting of stockholders. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Class III directors elected at the 2012 annual meeting of stockholders shall continue to serve until the 2015 annual meeting of stockholders, the Class I directors elected at the 2013 annual meeting of stockholders shall continue to serve until the 2016 annual meeting of stockholders and the Class II directors elected at the 2014 annual meeting of stockholders shall continue to serve until the 2017 annual meeting of stockholders, subject, however, to prior death, resignation, retirement, disqualification or removal from office. Beginning with the 2017 annual meeting of stockholders, the entire Board of Directors shall be subject to election at each annual meeting of stockholders and the Board of Directors will no longer be divided into classes. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Article Eighth to the contrary, the third annual meeting of stockholders following the date on which all conditions to the consummation of the Sixth Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization of Owens Corning and its Affiliated Debtors and Debtors-In-Possession (as Modified) (the “Plan”) filed pursuant to Section 1121(a) of the Bankruptcy Code and confirmed by an order of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware dated as of September 26, 2006 have been satisfied or waived as provided in Article XII of the Plan, and all acts, events, terms and conditions contemplated under the Plan to occur on the Effective Date have occurred (the “Effective Date”), shall not be held prior to the earlier of (i) the third anniversary of the Effective Date and (ii) the earlier of (x) if the Reserved New OCD Shares (as defined in the Plan, the “Reserved New OCD Shares”) are issued to the Asbestos Personal Injury Trust (as defined in the Plan, the “Asbestos PI Trust”), the date following such issuance on which the Asbestos PI Trust no longer owns, beneficially or of record, at least 1% of the then outstanding shares of common stock of the Corporation and (y) if all of the FAIR Act Conditions (as defined in the Plan, the “FAIR Act Conditions”) are satisfied in full, the date on which the last of the FAIR Act Conditions is satisfied in full. For purposes of this Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, the Asbestos PI Trust shall be considered to own, beneficially and of record, Reserved New OCD Shares for so long as the Asbestos PI Trust is able to provide, upon request by the Corporation, evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Corporation of the Asbestos PI Trust’s ownership of such Reserved New OCD Shares.


 

(b)

Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Article Eighth, each director shall serve until his or her successor is duly elected and qualified, unless be or she shall die, resign, retire, become disqualified or be removed. No decrease in the number of directors constituting the Board of Directors shall shorten the term of any incumbent director.

 

 

(c)

Any director may tender his or her resignation at any time. Subject to the rights of the holders of any series of Preferred Stock then outstanding with respect to directors appointed by the holders of such series of Preferred Stock, prior to and until the time at which the Board of Directors ceases to be classified pursuant to this Article Eighth, any director may be removed from office at any time, but only for cause and then only by the affirmative vote of the holders of at least a majority of the voting power of the then outstanding Voting Stock (as hereinafter defined), voting together as a single class. For purposes of this Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, “Voting Stock” shall mean the outstanding shares of capital stock of the Corporation entitled to vote generally in the election of directors. For purposes of this Article Eighth, “cause” shall mean (i) a director’s theft or embezzlement or attempted theft or embezzlement of money, or tangible or intangible assets or property, which results in a felony indictment or similar judicial proceeding; (ii) a director’s violation of any law (whether foreign or domestic), which results in a felony indictment or similar judicial proceeding; or (iii) a director’s gross negligence, willful misconduct or knowing violation of law, in the performance of the director’s duties; provided, however, the director shall have been given a reasonable period to cure any alleged cause under clause (iii) above (other than willful misconduct) prior to the taking of a vote on the director’s removal. Subject to the rights of the holders of any series of Preferred Stock then outstanding with respect to directors appointed by the holders of such series of Preferred Stock, from and after the time at which the Board of Directors ceases to be classified pursuant to this Article Eighth, any director may be removed from office at any time, with or without cause, by the affirmative vote of the holders of at least a majority of the voting power of the then outstanding Voting Stock, voting together as a single class.

 

 

(d)

Director vacancies shall be filled in the manner set forth in the Bylaws of the Corporation.

 

 

(e)

Whenever the holders of any one or more series of Preferred Stock issued by the Corporation shall have the right, voting separately by series, to elect directors at an annual or special meeting of stockholders, the election, term of office, filling of vacancies and other features of such directorships shall be governed by this Article Eighth unless expressly otherwise provided by the resolution or resolutions providing for the creation of such series.


 

(f)

Elections for directors shall not be by ballot unless demand is made for election by ballot by a stockholder entitled to vote for the election of directors. With respect to the election of directors, each stockholder shall be entitled to cast for any candidate for election as a director only one vote per share and stockholders shall not be entitled to cumulate their votes and cast them in favor of one candidate or distribute them among any two or more candidates.

 

 

(g)

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation and subject to the other provisions of this Article Eighth, the Board of Directors shall determine the rights, powers, duties, rules and procedures that shall affect the directors’ power to manage and direct the business and affairs of the Corporation. Without limiting the foregoing, the Board of Directors shall designate and empower committees of the Board of Directors, shall elect and empower the officers of the Corporation, may appoint and empower other officers and agents of the Corporation, and shall determine the time and place of, and the notice requirements for, Board meetings, as well as quorum and voting requirements for, and the manner of taking, Board action.

NINTH. Advance notice of new business and stockholder nominations for the election of directors shall be given in the manner and to the extent provided in the Bylaws of the Corporation. Any action required or permitted to be taken by the stockholders of the Corporation must be affected at a duly called annual or special meeting of such holders and may not be effected by any consent in writing by such holders. Except as otherwise required by law, special meetings of the stockholders of the Corporation may be called only by the Board of Directors pursuant to a resolution approved by a majority of the entire Board of Directors; provided, however, that during the period beginning on the Effective Date and ending on the earlier of (i) if the Reserved New OCD Shares are issued to the Asbestos PI Trust, the date of such issuance and (ii) if all of the FAIR Act Conditions are satisfied in full, the date on which the last of the FAIR Act Conditions is satisfied in full, no record date may be set for a special meeting of stockholders, nor may a special meeting of stockholders be called by the Board of Directors, if a purpose of such meeting is to amend, alter, modify, change or repeal, or to adopt a provision to the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation or to the Bylaws inconsistent with, Article Eighth, Article Ninth, Article Tenth, Article Eleventh, Article Twelfth or Article Thirteenth hereofor Sections 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.13, 2.14, 2.15 or 2.16 or Article X of the Bylaws.
