In connection with these changes to the Amended and Restated Articles, on May 24, 2018, the Company’s Board of Directors approved an amendment to and restatement of the Company’s bylaws (the “Amended and Restated Bylaws”), to conform the Amended and Restated Bylaws to the Amended and Restated Articles, as well as other amendments. The Amended and Restated Bylaws are effective June 11, 2018, and amend and restate the Company’s bylaws in their entirety, to, among other things:
amend Article I, Section 2 to allow special meetings of the stockholders to be called by a majority of the whole board, not a majority of the board, and to add a definition of “whole board”;
amend Article I, Section 9 to describe additional content to be required in a stockholder’s notice to the Secretary of the Corporation regarding the nature of the business the stockholder desires to be heard at the Meeting of the Stockholders, specifically the inclusion of the text of any proposed business and any proposed resolution;
amend Article I, Section 10 to describe additional content to be required in a stockholder’s notice to the Secretary of the Corporation regarding each person who the stockholder proposes to nominate for election as a director, specifically, the content of a written statement executed by the nominee, and additional criteria which shall cause a nominee to become ineligible for election as a director, including, the nominee taking certain actions or making untrue material statements or omitting material facts;
delete Article II, Section 2, which described the number of directors on the board;
delete Article II, Section 3, which described the classes of directors;
delete Article II, Section 4, which described the length of the directors’ terms;
amend Article II, Section 7 to allow the Board of Directors to designate a director or an officer to preside at a meeting where the chair is absent;
amend Article II, Section 9 to allow a director to resign by electronic transmission;
delete Article II, Section 14, which described how to place a director in a class when a director is elected to fill a vacancy;
amend Article III, Section 7 to allow an officer to resign by electronic transmission;
add Article III, Section 8, which authorizes certain officers to vote, represent and exercise the Company’s rights related to the shares of other entities;
amend Article VI, Section 1 to change the requirement for the Board of Directors to amend the Bylaws, and to authorize and describe the process by which the Company’s stockholders may amend the Bylaws; and
make various ministerial changes.
