AUTHORIZED CAPITAL STOCK

SECTION 1 Number of Authorized Shares. The Corporation shall be authorized to issue two classes of shares of stock to be designated, respectively, “Common Stock” and “Preferred Stock”; the total number of shares of all classes of stock that the Corporation shall have authority to issue is six hundred ten million (610,000,000) shares, consisting of six hundred million (600,000,000) shares of Common Stock, par value of $.01 per share, and ten million (10,000,000) shares of Preferred Stock, par value $.01 per share.

SECTION 2 Common Stock. Shares of Common Stock may be issued from time to time in one or more series. Shares of Common Stock that are redeemed, purchased or otherwise acquired by the Corporation may be reissued except as otherwise provided by law. The Board is hereby authorized to fix or alter the designations, powers and preferences, and relative, participating, optional or other rights, if any, and qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof, including, without limitation, dividend rights (and whether dividends are cumulative), conversion rights, if any, voting rights (including the number of votes, if any, per share, as well as the number of members, if any, of the Board or the percentage of members, if any, of the Board each series of Common Stock may be entitled to elect), rights and terms of redemption (including sinking fund provisions, if any), redemption price and liquidation preferences of any wholly unissued series of Common Stock, and the number of shares constituting any such series and the designation thereof, and to increase or decrease the number of shares of any such series subsequent to the issuance of shares of such series, but not below the number of shares of such series then outstanding. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Board shall have no power to alter the rights of any shares of Common Stock then outstanding. Unless and until the Corporation shall file with the Delaware Secretary of State a certificate of designations creating a series of Common Stock, all shares of Common Stock shall be of one class without series and shall be denominated “Common Stock.” Upon the first filing with the Delaware Secretary of State of a certificate of designations creating a series of Common Stock, which series shall be denominated “Class B Common Stock,” each share of Common Stock outstanding or held in the treasury immediately prior to such filing shall be denominated “Class A Common Stock,” and each certificate representing then outstanding shares of Common Stock shall thereafter be deemed to represent shares of Class A Common Stock.

SECTION 3 Preferred Stock. Shares of Preferred Stock may be issued from time to time in one or more series. Shares of Preferred Stock that are redeemed, purchased or otherwise acquired by the Corporation may be reissued except as otherwise provided by law. The Board is hereby authorized to fix or alter the designations, powers and preferences, and relative, participating, optional or other rights, if any, and qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof, including, without limitation, dividend rights (and whether dividends are cumulative), conversion rights, if any, voting rights (including the number of votes, if any, per share, as well as the number of members, if any, of the Board or the percentage of members, if any, of the Board each class or series of Preferred Stock may be entitled to elect), rights and terms of redemption (including sinking fund provisions, if any), redemption price and liquidation preferences of any wholly unissued series of Preferred Stock, and the number of shares constituting any such series and the designation thereof, and to increase or decrease the number of shares of any such series subsequent to the issuance of shares of such series, but not below the number of shares of such series then outstanding. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Board shall have no power to alter the rights of any shares of Preferred Stock then outstanding.

SECTION 4 Distributions Upon Liquidation. 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, the holders of each series of Preferred Stock shall be entitled to receive, out of the net assets of the Corporation, an amount for each share of such series of Preferred Stock equal to the amount fixed and determined by the Board in the resolution or resolutions creating such series and providing for the issuance of such shares, and no more, before any of the assets of the Corporation shall be distributed or paid over to the holders of Common Stock and any Preferred Stock with rights to participate with the Common Stock in such event. If, upon such dissolution, liquidation or winding up, the assets of the Corporation distributable as aforesaid among the holders of Preferred Stock of all series shall be insufficient to permit full payment to them of said preferential amounts, then such assets shall be distributed ratably among such holders of Preferred Stock in proportion to the respective total amounts which they shall be entitled to receive as provided in this Section 4. After payment in full of said preferential amounts to the holders of Preferred Stock of all series, the remaining assets and funds of the Corporation shall be divided among and paid to the holders of shares of each series of Common Stock and shares of Common Stock without series, and any Preferred Stock with rights to participate with the Common Stock in such event, each in accordance with the resolution or resolutions of the Board creating such series and providing for the issuance of such shares.

SECTION 5 Reverse Stock Split. Upon the filing and effectiveness (the “Effective Time”) pursuant to the Delaware Law of this Third Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Corporation, each five shares of Common Stock either issued and outstanding or held by the Corporation in treasury stock immediately prior to the Effective Time shall, automatically and without any action on the part of the respective holders thereof, be combined and converted into one (1) share of Common Stock (the “Reverse Stock Split”). No fractional shares shall be issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Stockholders who otherwise would be entitled to receive fractional shares of Common Stock shall be entitled to receive cash (without interest or deduction) from the Corporation’s transfer agent in lieu of such fractional share interests upon the submission of a transmission letter by a stockholder holding the shares in book-entry form and, where shares are held in certificated form, upon the surrender of the stockholder’s Old Certificates (as defined below), in an amount equal to the product obtained by multiplying (a) the

 

3


closing price per share of the Common Stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange as of the date of the Effective Time, by (b) the fraction of one share owned by the stockholder. Each certificate that immediately prior to the Effective Time represented shares of Common Stock (“Old Certificates”), shall thereafter represent that number of shares of Common Stock into which the shares of Common Stock represented by the Old Certificate shall have been combined, subject to the elimination of fractional share interests as described above.

ARTICLE VI

ARTICLE VIII

NUMBER OF DIRECTORS

The number of directors that shall constitute the whole Board shall be as specified in the Bylaws of the Corporation, as the same may be amended from time to time. Notwithstanding the foregoing, during any period in which the holders of any one or more series of Preferred Stock, voting as a class, shall be entitled to elect a specified number of directors by reason of dividend arrearages or other contingencies giving them the right to do so, then and during such time as such right continues, (A) the then otherwise authorized number of directors shall be increased by such specified number of directors and the holders of shares of such series of Preferred Stock, voting as a class, shall be entitled to elect such specified number of directors in accordance with the procedure set forth in the resolution or resolutions of the Board creating such series and

providing for the issuance of such shares and (B) each such additional director shall serve until his or her successor shall be elected and shall qualify, or until his or her right to hold such office terminates pursuant to the resolution or resolutions of the Board creating such series of Preferred Stock and providing for the issuance of shares of such series, whichever occurs earlier. Whenever the holders of shares of such series of Preferred Stock are divested of such right to elect directors pursuant to the resolution or resolutions of the Board creating such series and providing for the issuance of such shares, the terms of office of all directors elected by the holders of such series of Preferred Stock pursuant to such rights, or elected to fill any vacancies resulting from the death, resignation or removal of directors so elected by the holders of such series, shall forthwith terminate and the authorized number of directors shall be reduced accordingly.

ARTICLE IX

STOCKHOLDER ACTION BY WRITTEN CONSENT

Subject to any rights of the holders of any series of Preferred Stock to act by written consent as set forth in the applicable certificate of designations, any action required or permitted to be taken by stockholders of the Corporation may be effected at a duly called annual or special meeting of stockholders and may be effected by a written consent or consents by stockholders in lieu of and without such a meeting, without prior notice and without a vote, if there is filed with the records of stockholders’ meetings a unanimous written consent which sets forth the action and is signed by each stockholder entitled to vote on the matter and a written waiver of any right to dissent signed by each stockholder entitled to notice of the meeting but not entitled to vote at it. To be effective, a written consent must be delivered to the Corporation by delivery to its registered agent in the State of Delaware. Delivery made to the Corporation’s registered office shall be by hand or by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested.
