Section 2.5    Record Date. In order that the corporation may determine the stockholders entitled to notice of or to vote at any meeting, or any adjournment of a meeting, of stockholders, or to express consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting, or entitled to receive payment of any dividend or other distribution or allotment of any rights, or entitled to exercise any rights in respect of any change, conversion or exchange of stock or for the purpose of any other lawful action, the board of directors may fix, in advance, a record date, which shall not be more than 60 nor less than 15 days before the date of such meeting, nor more than 60 days prior to any other action.

A determination of stockholders of record entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of stockholders shall apply to any adjournment of the meeting; provided, however, that the board of directors may fix a new record date for the adjourned meeting.
Section 2.6    Voting List. The secretary of the corporation shall prepare and make, at least ten days before every meeting of stockholders, a complete list of the stockholders entitled to vote at the meeting, arranged in alphabetical order and showing the address and the number of shares registered in the name of each stockholder.

If, however, such a quorum shall not be present at any meeting of stockholders, the stockholders entitled to vote, present in person or represented by proxy, shall have the power to adjourn the meeting from time to time, without notice if the time and place are announced at the meeting, until a quorum shall be present. Any meeting of the stockholders, annual or special, may be adjourned from time to time at the same or some other place, and notice need not be given of any such adjourned meeting if the time and place are announced at the meeting at which the adjournment is taken. At such adjourned meeting at which a quorum shall be present any business may be transacted which might have been transacted at the original meeting. If the adjournment is for more than 30 days, or if after the adjournment a new record date is fixed for the adjourned meeting, a notice of the adjourned meeting shall be given to each stockholder of record entitled to vote at the meeting.

Section 2.8    Voting and Proxies. Each stockholder shall at every meeting of the stockholders be entitled to one vote in person or by proxy for each share of the capital stock having voting power held by such stockholder, but no proxy shall be voted on after three years from its date, unless the proxy provides for a longer period. A nominee for director shall be elected to the Board of Directors if a majority of the votes cast are in favor of such nominee's election; provided, however, that, if the number of nominees for director exceeds the number of directors to be elected, directors shall be elected by a plurality of the votes of the shares represented in person or by proxy at any meeting of stockholders held to elect directors and entitled to vote on such election of directors. Unless otherwise required by law, the Certificate of Incorporation or these by-laws, any matter, other than the election of directors, brought before any meeting of stockholders shall be decided by the affirmative vote of the majority of shares present in person or represented by proxy at the meeting and entitled to vote on the matter.
Section 2.9    Waiver. Attendance of a stockholder of the corporation, either in person or by proxy, at any meeting, either annual or special, shall constitute waiver of notice of such meeting, except where a stockholder attends a meeting for the express purpose of objecting, at the beginning of the meeting, to the transaction of any business because the meeting is not lawfully called or convened. A written waiver of notice of any such meeting signed by a stockholder or stockholders entitled to such notice, whether before, at or after the time stated in such notice, shall be equivalent to notice.
Section 2.10    Conduct of Stockholder Meetings. At every meeting of stockholders, the board chair, or in his or her absence, the vice chairman, president, or in his or her absence, a vice-president, or if none be present, the appointee of the meeting, shall act as chairman of the meeting, and the secretary, or in the absence an assistant secretary, or if none be present, the appointee of the chairman of the meeting shall act as secretary of the meeting. The chairman of the meeting shall call the meeting to order, and shall make such rulings and determinations as shall be necessary or convenient for the orderly conduct of the meeting, including but not limited to setting the place and agenda, imposing reasonable time limits on speakers, determining when the polls shall open and close, the method of voting and the manner in which votes are counted, the sufficiency and interpretation of any proxy, the propriety of any matter submitted for stockholder action, and the time of adjournment.

3



2.11, the stockholder must have given timely notice thereof in writing to the secretary of the corporation and such business must be a proper subject for stockholder action under the Delaware General Corporation Law. To be timely, a stockholder's notice shall be delivered to the secretary at the principal executive offices of the corporation not less than 90 days prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year's annual meeting; provided, however, that in the event that the date of the annual meeting is advanced by more than 20 days, or delayed by more than 70 days, from such anniversary notice by the stockholder to be timely must be so delivered not later than the close of business following the day on which public announcement of the date of such meeting is first made. Such stockholder's notice shall set forth (a) as to each person whom the stockholder proposes to nominate for election or reelection as a director all information relating to such person that is of the type required to be disclosed in solicitations of proxies for election of directors, or is otherwise required pursuant to Regulation 14A under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"); (b) as to any other business that the stockholder proposes to bring before the meeting, a brief description of the business desired to be brought before the meeting, the reasons for conducting such business at the meeting and any material interest in such business of such stockholder and the beneficial owner, if any, on whose behalf the proposal is made; and (c) as to the stockholder giving the notice and the beneficial owner, if any, on whose behalf the nomination or proposal is made (i) the name and address of such stockholder, as they appear on the corporation's books, and of such beneficial owner and (ii) the class and number of shares of the corporation which are owned beneficially and of record by such stockholder and such beneficial owner.
(3)    Notwithstanding anything in the second sentence of paragraph (A)(2) of this Section 2.11 to the contrary, in the event that the number of directors to be elected to the board of directors is increased and there is no public announcement naming all of the nominees for director or specifying the size of the increased board of directors made by the corporation at least 80 days prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year's annual meeting, a stockholder's notice required by this paragraph (A)(2) of this Section 2.11 shall also be considered timely, but only with respect to nominees for any new positions created by such increase, if it shall be delivered to the secretary at the principal executive offices of the corporation not later than the close of business on the 10th day following the day on which such public announcement is first made by the corporation.
(B)    Special Meeting of the Stockholders. Nominations of persons for election to the board of directors at a special meeting of stockholders at which directors are to be elected shall only be made (1) by or at the direction of the board of directors or (2) by any stockholder of the corporation who is entitled to vote at the meeting, who complies with the notice procedures set forth in this paragraph (B) and who is a stockholder of record at the time such notice is delivered to the secretary of the corporation. Nominations by stockholders of persons for election to the board of directors at such a special meeting of stockholders shall not be considered effective unless the stockholder's notice required by paragraph (A)(2) of

4



this Section 2.11 is delivered to the secretary at the principal executive offices of the corporation not later than the close of business on the later of the 75th day prior to such special meeting or the 10th day following the date on which public announcement is first made of the date of the special meeting and of the nominees proposed by the board of directors to be elected at such meeting.
(C)    General.
(1)    Only persons who are nominated in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 2.11 or Section 2.12 shall be eligible to serve as directors and only such business shall be conducted at a meeting of stockholders as shall have been brought before the meeting in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 2.11 or Section 2.12.
(2)    Except as otherwise provided by law, the Certificate of Incorporation or this Section 2.11 or Section 2.12, the chairman of the meeting shall have the power and duty to determine whether a nomination or any business proposed to be brought before the meeting was made in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 2.11 or Section 2.12 and, if any proposed nomination or business is not in compliance with this Section 2.11 or Section 2.12 to declare that such defective proposal or nomination shall be disregarded.
(3)    For purposes of this Section 2.11, "public announcement" shall mean disclosure in a press release reported by the Dow Jones News Service, Associated Press or comparable national news service or in a document publicly filed by the corporation with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Section 13, 14 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act.
(4)    Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.11, a stockholder shall also comply with all applicable requirements of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations thereunder with respect to the matters set forth in this Section 2.11. Nothing in this Section 2.11 shall be deemed to affect any rights of stockholders to request inclusion of proposals in the corporation's proxy statement pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under Exchange Act.
Section 2.12    Stockholder Nominations Included in the Corporation's Proxy Materials.
(A)    Inclusion of Nominee in Proxy Statement. Subject to the provisions of this Section 2.12, if expressly requested in the relevant Nomination Notice (as defined below), the corporation shall include in its proxy statement for any annual meeting of stockholders:
(1)    The name of any person nominated for election (the “Nominee”) by any Eligible Holder (as defined below) or group of up to 20 Eligible Holders (the Eligible Holder or group of up to 20 Eligible Holders are individually and collectively, the “Nominating Stockholder”) that has satisfied-either individually or, in the case of a group, collectively-all applicable conditions and complied with all applicable procedures set forth in this Section 2.12 as determined by the board of directors;

5



(2)    Any disclosure about the Nominee and the Nominating Stockholder that is required under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission or other applicable law to be included in such proxy statement;
(3)    Any statement included by the Nominating Stockholder in the Nomination Notice to be included in the proxy statement in support of the Nominee’s election to the board of directors subject, without limitation, to paragraph (E)(2) of Section 2.12 below, if such statement does not exceed 500 words; and
(4)    Any other information that the corporation or the board of directors determines in their discretion to include in the proxy statement relating to the nomination of the Nominee, including, but not limited to, any statement in opposition to the election of any Nominee or any of the information provided pursuant to this Section.
For purposes of this Section 2.12, any determination to be made by the board of directors may be made by the board of directors, a committee of the board of directors or any officer of the corporation designated by the board of directors or a committee of the board of directors, and any such determination shall be final and binding on the corporation, any Eligible Holder, any Nominating Stockholder, any Nominee and any other person so long as made in good faith (without any further requirements).
(B)    Maximum Number of Nominees.
(1)    The corporation shall not be required to include in such proxy statement for an annual meeting of stockholders more Nominees than the number of directors constituting the greater of two or 20% of the total number of directors of the corporation, rounded down to the nearest whole number (the “Maximum Number”), on the last day on which a Nomination Notice may be submitted pursuant to this Section 2.12. The Maximum Number for a particular annual meeting shall be reduced by: (x) Nominees who are subsequently withdrawn or whom the board of directors, itself, decides to nominate for election at such annual meeting, and (y) the number of incumbent directors who had been Nominees pursuant to this Section 2.12 with respect to any of the preceding three annual meetings of stockholders and whose reelection at the annual meeting is being recommended by the board of directors. In the event that one or more vacancies occurs for any reason on the board of directors after the deadline set forth in paragraph (D) of Section 2.12 below but before the date of the annual meeting, and the board of directors resolves to reduce the size of the board, the Maximum Number shall be calculated based on the number of directors in office as so reduced.
(2)    If the number of Nominees pursuant to this Section 2.12 for any annual meeting of stockholders exceeds the Maximum Number then, promptly upon written notice from the corporation, each Nominating Stockholder will select-going in the order of largest to smallest amount of the ownership position as disclosed in each Nominating Stockholder’s Nomination Notice-one Nominee to be included in the

6



proxy statement until the Maximum Number is reached with the process repeated if the Maximum Number is not reached after each Nominating Stockholder has selected one Nominee. If, after the deadline for submitting a Nomination Notice as set forth in paragraph (D) of Section 2.12, a Nominating Stockholder becomes ineligible or withdraws its nomination or a Nominee becomes unwilling to serve on the board of directors, whether before or after the mailing of the definitive proxy statement, then the nomination of the Nominee shall be disregarded, and the corporation: (x) shall not be required to include in its proxy statement or on any ballot or form of proxy the disregarded Nominee or any successor or replacement nominee as proposed by the Nominating Stockholder or by any other Nominating Stockholder, and (y) may otherwise communicate to its stockholders, such as by revising or supplementing its proxy materials and form of proxy, that the Nominee will not be included as a Nominee in the proxy statement or on any ballot or form of proxy and will not be voted on at the annual meeting.
(C)    Eligibility of Nominating Stockholder.
(1)    An “Eligible Holder” is a person who either (x) has been a record holder of the shares of stock used to satisfy the eligibility requirements in paragraph (C) of this Section 2.12 continuously for the 3-year period specified in subsection (2) below, or (y) has provided evidence of continuous ownership of such shares of stock for such 3-year period to the secretary of the corporation, within the time period set forth in paragraph (D) of Section 2.12 below, from one or more securities intermediaries in a form that the board of directors determines would be deemed acceptable.
(2)    An Eligible Holder or group of up to 20 Eligible Holders may submit a nomination in accordance with this Section 2.12 only if the person or group (in the aggregate) (x) has continuously owned at least the Minimum Number (as defined below) of shares of the corporation’s stock throughout the 3-year period preceding and including the date of submission of the Nomination Notice, and (y) continues to own at least the Minimum Number through the date of the applicable annual meeting. A group of funds under common management and investment control shall be treated as one Eligible Holder if such Eligible Holder shall provide together with the Nomination Notice documentation reasonably satisfactory to the corporation that demonstrates that the funds are under common management and investment control. For the avoidance of doubt, in the event of a nomination by a group of Eligible Holders, any and all requirements and obligations for an individual Eligible Holder that are set forth in this Section 2.12 including, but not limited to, the minimum holding period shall apply to each member of such group; provided, however, that the Minimum Number shall apply to the ownership of the group in the aggregate. Should any stockholder cease to satisfy the eligibility requirements of this Section 2.12, as determined by the board of directors, or withdraw from a group of Eligible Holders at any time prior to the applicable annual meeting of stockholders, the group of Eligible Stockholders shall only be deemed to own the shares held by the remaining members of the group.

7



(3)    The “Minimum Number” of shares of the corporation’s stock means 3% of the number of outstanding shares of stock as of the most recent date for which such amount is disclosed in any filing by the corporation with the Securities and Exchange Commission prior to the submission of the Nomination Notice.
(4)    For purposes of this Section 2.12, an Eligible Holder “owns” only those outstanding shares of the corporation’s stock as to which the Eligible Holder possesses both (x) the full voting and investment rights pertaining to such shares; and (y) the full economic interest in such shares, including the opportunity for profit and risk of loss on such shares. However, the number of shares of stock calculated in accordance with the immediately preceding clauses (x) and (y) shall not include any shares of stock: (1) that have been sold by such Eligible Holder or any of its affiliates in any transaction that has not settled or closed, (2) that have been borrowed by such Eligible Holder or any of its affiliates for any purpose or have been purchased by such Eligible Holder or any of its affiliates pursuant to an agreement to resell, or (3) that are subject to any option, warrant, forward contract, swap, contract of sale, or other derivative or similar agreement entered into by such Eligible Holder or any of its affiliates-regardless of whether such instrument or agreement is to be settled with shares or with cash based on the notional amount or value of the outstanding shares of the corporation’s stock-where such instrument or agreement has, or is intended to have, the purpose or the effect of either (A) reducing in any manner, to any extent or at any time in the future, such Eligible Holder’s or any of its affiliates’ full right to vote or direct the voting of any such shares of the corporation’s stock and/or (B) hedging, offsetting, or altering to any degree, the gain or loss arising from the full economic ownership of such shares by such Eligible Holder or any of its affiliates.
An Eligible Holder “owns” shares of the corporation’s stock held in the name of a nominee or other intermediary so long as the Eligible Holder retains the right to instruct how the shares are voted with respect to the election of directors and possesses the full economic interest in the shares. An Eligible Holder’s ownership of shares of the corporation’s stock shall be deemed to continue during any period in which the Eligible Holder has delegated any voting power by means of proxy, power of attorney, or other similar instrument or arrangement that is revocable at any time by the Eligible Holder. An Eligible Holder’s ownership of the shares of the corporation’s stock shall be deemed to continue during any period in which the Eligible Holder has loaned such shares, provided that the Eligible Holder has the power to recall such loaned shares on five business days’ notice and has recalled such loaned shares as of the date the Nomination Notice is submitted to the corporation and holds such shares through the date of the annual meeting. The terms “owned,” “owning,” and other variations of the word “own” shall have correlative meanings. Whether outstanding shares of the corporation are “owned” for these purposes shall be determined by the board of directors.
(5)    No person shall be permitted to be in more than one group constituting a Nominating Stockholder and, if any person appears as a member of more than one

8



group, it shall be deemed to be a member of the group that has the largest ownership position as reflected in the Nomination Notice.
(D)    Nomination Notice. To nominate a Nominee, the Nominating Stockholder must submit to the secretary of the corporation at the principal executive offices of the corporation all of the following information and documents (collectively, the “Nomination Notice”) no earlier than 150 calendar days, and no later than 120 calendar days, before the anniversary of the date that the corporation mailed its proxy statement for the prior year’s annual meeting of stockholders; provided, however, that if, and only if, the annual meeting is convened more than 30 days before or after such anniversary date (the “Other Meeting Date”), the Nomination Notice to be timely must be received at the principal executive offices of the corporation not later than the close of business on the later of the 90th day prior to such Other Meeting Date or the 10th day following the date on which public announcement (as defined above) of the date of such meeting is first made by the corporation:
