(the “Company”), a Delaware corporation, approved and adopted an amendment to and restatement of the Company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Restated Bylaws”), which became effective immediately.

The Restated Bylaws provide that a director nominee will be elected by a majority of the votes cast by the shares present in person or represented by proxy at the meeting and entitled to vote in the election of such director, such that the number of votes cast “for” a director nominee must exceed the number of votes cast “against” that director nominee. A plurality voting standard remains applicable to any contested election.
Advance Notice. Amended Article II, Section 11(A)(2) to require any stockholder nominee for election to the Board to provide a written statement of such nominee’s intention to serve as a director for the full term for which such nominee is to stand for election.
Board Meetings. Amended Article III, Section 5 to provide that the Lead Independent Director shall preside at meetings of the Board in the absence of the Chairman of the Board.
Other Amendments. Included certain other ministerial changes, clarifications, technical edits and updates.
The foregoing summary of the Restated Bylaws does not purport to be a complete description of the amendments made to the Company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws. It is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Restated Bylaws which is attached as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.
