Item 6. Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

The Second Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of Restoration Hardware, Inc., as amended, authorizes Restoration Hardware, Inc. to limit or eliminate the liability of the company’s directors to the company or its stockholders for monetary damage to the fullest extent permitted by the Delaware General Corporation Law (“DGCL”). As permitted by the DGCL, the Second Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, provides that the directors of Restoration Hardware, Inc. will not be personally liable to the company or its stockholders for monetary damages for a breach of fiduciary duty as a director, except for liability (i) for any breach of such person’s duty of loyalty to the company or its stockholders, (ii) for acts or omissions involving intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) for payment of dividends or approval of stock repurchases or redemptions that are prohibited by Section 174 of the DGCL and (iv) for any transaction resulting in receipt by such person of an improper personal benefit.

Under Section 145 of the DGCL, Restoration Hardware, Inc. has broad discretion to indemnify its directors and officers against liabilities they may incur in such capacities, including liabilities under the Securities Act. The Second Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of Restoration Hardware, Inc., as amended, provides that the company may indemnify directors, officers, employees and agents in excess of the indemnification and advancement of expenses permitted by Section 145 of the DGCL, subject to limits under Delaware law with respect to actions for breach of duty to the company, its stockholders and others. The company will indemnify any person who is made a party or threatened to be made a party or is in any way involved in any action, suit or proceeding by reason of being a director or officer of the company or a direct or indirect subsidiary of the company, or is or was serving at the request of the company as a director or officer of another entity or enterprise, and will also advance expenses, to the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL. The company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws contain similar provisions for indemnification of directors made, or threatened to be made, a party to an action or proceeding by reason of being a director of the company or, at the request of the company, a director or officer of another company. The company will pay all expenses incurred by a director in defending a civil or criminal action, suit or proceeding by reason of being a director before final disposition of the action, suit or proceeding once the director or someone acting on such director’s behalf undertakes to repay such amount if it is ultimately determined that the director is not entitled to indemnification by the company. The Amended and Restated Bylaws further provide that the board of directors has discretion to indemnify any person, other than a director, made a party to any action, suit or proceeding by reason of being an officer or employee of the company. The company currently has directors’ and officers’ liability insurance to provide its directors and officers with insurance coverage for losses arising from claims based on breaches of duty, negligence, errors and other wrongful acts. In addition to the indemnification provided for in the company’s Second Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, and Amended and Restated Bylaws, the company has also entered into agreements with certain of its directors and officers to indemnify such directors and officers, respectively, against any expenses, fees, judgments and settlement amounts actually and reasonably incurred by that person in connection with any threatened or pending action, suit or proceeding to which that person is or is threatened to be made a party by reason of that person being a director, officer, employee or agent of the company or any subsidiary of the company or of serving at the request of the company as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or enterprise.

Item 9. Undertakings.

(a) The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:

 

2


(1) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:

(i) To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act of 1933;

(ii) To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the SEC pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than a 20 percent change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement;

(iii) To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement;

provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (a)(1)(ii) do not apply if the registration statement is on Form S-3, Form S-8 or Form F-3, and the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in periodic reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the registrant pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement.

(2) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(3) To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

(b) The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(c) Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
