(b) intentional infliction of harm on the Corporation or its shareholders;

Any repeal, amendment or other modification of this Article shall not adversely affect any right or protection of a director of the Corporation existing at the time of such repeal, amendment or other modification. If the Act is amended, after this Article becomes effective, to authorize corporate action further eliminating or limiting personal liability of directors, then the liability of directors shall be eliminated or limited to the fullest extent permitted by the Act as so amended.

ARTICLE IX

(iIndemnification of Officers, Directors, Employees and Agents.
