Stockholders

SECTION 1.01. Annual Meeting. The Board of Directors by resolution shall designate the time, place and date of the annual meeting of the stockholders for the election of directors and the transaction of such other business as may come before it.
SECTION 1.02. Notice of Meetings of Stockholders. Whenever stockholders are required or permitted to take any action at a meeting, written notice of the meeting shall be given (unless that notice shall be waived) which shall state the place, date and hour of the meeting and, in the case of a special meeting, the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called. The written notice of any meeting shall be given, personally or by mail, not less than ten nor more than sixty days before the date of the meeting to each stockholder entitled to vote at such meeting. If mailed, such notice is given when deposited in the United States mail, postage prepaid, directed to the stockholder at his address as it appears on the records of the Corporation.
When a meeting is adjourned to another time or place, notice need not be given of the adjourned meeting if the time and place thereof are announced at the meeting at which the adjournment is taken. At the adjourned meeting, the Corporation may transact any business which might have been transacted at the original meeting. If the adjournment is for more than thirty 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 1.03. Quorum. At all meetings of the stockholders, the holders of a majority of the stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote thereat, present in person or by proxy, shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of any business.
When a quorum is once present to organize a meeting, it is not broken by the subsequent withdrawal of any stockholders.
If a quorum is not present at a meeting, the chair of the meeting or the holders of a majority of the voting power of the outstanding shares of capital stock entitled to be voted at the meeting that are present, in person or by proxy, may adjourn the meeting to another place, date or time, without notice other than as specified in Section 1.02 hereof. At any adjourned meeting at which the







requisite amount of voting stock shall be represented, the Corporation may transact any business which might have been transacted at the original meeting had a quorum been there present.
SECTION 1.04. Method of Voting.
A. The vote upon any question before the meeting need not be by ballot. Except as expressly provided otherwise by the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, the Certificate of Incorporation or this Section 1.04, at a meeting at which a quorum is present, each matter other than the election of directors 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.
B. At each meeting of the stockholders for the election of directors at which a quorum is present, each director shall be elected by the vote of the majority of the votes cast; provided, that if as of the record date for such meeting the number of nominees exceeds the number of directors to be elected, the directors, not exceeding the authorized number of directors as fixed by the Board of Directors in accordance with the Certificate of Incorporation, shall be elected by a plurality of the votes cast. For purposes of this Section 1.04, a majority of the votes cast means that the number of shares voted “for” a director must exceed the number of shares voted “against” that director. If, for any cause, the Board of Directors shall not have been elected at an annual meeting, they may be elected thereafter at a special meeting of the stockholders called for that purpose in the manner provided in these By-laws.
SECTION 1.05. Voting Rights of Stockholders and Proxies. Each stockholder of record entitled to vote in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, the Certificate of Incorporation or these By-laws, shall at every meeting of the stockholders be entitled to one vote in person or by proxy for each share of stock entitled to vote standing in his name on the books of the Corporation, but no proxy shall be voted on after three years from its date, unless the proxy provides for a longer period.
SECTION 1.06. Ownership of its Own Stock. Shares of its own capital stock belonging to the Corporation or to another corporation, if a majority of the shares entitled to vote in the election of directors of such other corporation is held, directly or indirectly, by the Corporation, shall neither be entitled to vote nor be counted for quorum purposes. Nothing in this section shall be construed as limiting the right of any corporation to vote stock, including but not limited to its own stock, held by it in a fiduciary capacity.
SECTION 1.07. Conduct of Meetings. Each meeting of the stockholders shall be presided over by the Chairman of the Board of Directors or such other person as the Board of Directors may designate as chairman of such meeting. The Secretary of the Corporation, or in his absence, an Assistant Secretary, shall act as secretary of every meeting, but if neither the Secretary nor an Assistant Secretary is present, the chairman of the meeting shall appoint a secretary of the meeting. In the conduct of a meeting of the stockholders, all of the powers and authority vested in a presiding officer by law or practice shall be vested in the chairman of the meeting.

SECTION 1.08. Notice of Business and Nominations.
A. Nominations of persons for election to the Board of Directors and the proposal of business to be transacted by the stockholders at an annual meeting of stockholders may be made (1) by or at the direction of the Board of Directors (or any duly authorized committee thereof) pursuant to a notice of meeting or by otherwise properly bringing the matter before an annual meeting of stockholders, (2) by any stockholder of record of the Corporation who was a stockholder of record at the time of the giving of the notice provided for in the following paragraph, who is entitled to vote at the meeting and who has complied with the notice procedures set forth in this Section 1.08 or (3) in respect of the nomination of persons for election to the Board of Directors, pursuant to complying with all of the terms and conditions of Section 1.10.

The applicable provisions of this paragraph B and, except with respect to the 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, the following paragraph C apply to all nominations of persons for election to the Board of Directors and other business proposed to be brought before a meeting.
(1) The stockholder must have given timely notice thereof in writing to the Secretary of the Corporation, as hereinafter provided. 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 and not more than 120 days prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year’s annual meeting of stockholders; provided, however, that if the date of the annual meeting is advanced more than 30 days prior to or delayed by more than 60 days after such anniversary date, notice by the stockholder to be timely must be so delivered not later than the close of business on the later of the 90th day prior to such annual meeting or the 10th day following the day on which public announcement of the date of such meeting is first made. In no event shall the public announcement of an adjournment or postponement of an annual meeting or of a new record date for an annual meeting commence a new time period (or extend any time period) for the giving of a stockholder’s notice as described above.
(2) Such business must be a proper matter for stockholder action under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware.
(3) If the stockholder, or the beneficial owner on whose behalf any such proposal or nomination is made, solicits or participates in the solicitation of proxies in support of such proposal or nominees, the stockholder must have timely indicated its, or such beneficial owner’s, intention to do so as provided in provision (4)(iii)(9) or (5)(c)(iii) below, as applicable.

The chairman of the meeting shall have the power and the duty to determine whether a nomination or any business proposed to be brought before the meeting has been made in accordance with the procedures set forth in these By-laws and, if any proposed nomination or business is not in compliance with these By-laws, to declare that such defective proposed business or nomination shall not be presented for stockholder action at the meeting and shall be disregarded.
G. For purposes of this Section 1.08 and Section 1.10, “public announcement “ shall mean disclosure in a press release reported by the Dow Jones News Service, Associated Press or a 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.

notwithstanding that proxies in respect of such vote may have been received by the Corporation. For purposes of this Section 1.09, to be considered a qualified representative of a stockholder, a person must be a duly authorized officer, manager or partner of such stockholder or must be authorized by a writing executed by such stockholder or an electronic transmission delivered by such stockholder to act for such stockholder as proxy at the meeting of stockholders and such person must produce such writing or electronic transmission, or reliable reproduction of the writing or electronic transmission, at the meeting of the stockholders.
SECTION 1.10. Proxy Access.
A. Inclusion of Nominee in Proxy Statement. Whenever the Board of Directors solicits proxies with respect to the election of directors at an annual meeting of stockholders (following the 2018 Annual Meeting of Shareholders), subject to the provisions of this Section 1.10, the Corporation shall include in its proxy materials for such annual meeting, in addition to any persons nominated for election by the Board of Directors (or any duly authorized committee thereof), the name, together with the Required Information (as defined below), of any person nominated for election (a “Stockholder Nominee”) to the Board of Directors by a stockholder, or by a group of no more than 20 stockholders, that (i) has satisfied (individually or, in the case of a group, collectively) all applicable conditions and has complied with all applicable procedures set forth in this Section 1.10 (an “Eligible Stockholder,” which shall include an eligible stockholder group), and (ii) expressly elects at the time of providing the notice required by this Section 1.10 (the “Nomination Notice”) to have its nominee included in the Corporation’s proxy materials for such annual meeting pursuant to this Section 1.10.
B. Required Information. For purposes of this Section 1.10, the “Required Information” that the Corporation will include in its proxy materials is (i) the information concerning the Stockholder Nominee and the Eligible Stockholder that is required to be disclosed in the Corporation’s proxy statement by the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission promulgated under the Exchange Act; and (ii) if the Eligible Stockholder so elects, a Supporting Statement (as defined below).
C. Delivery of Nomination Notice. To be timely, an Eligible Stockholder’s Nomination Notice must be delivered to the Secretary of the Corporation at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not less than 120 days prior to and not more than 150 days prior to the first anniversary of the release date of the Corporation’s proxy materials for the preceding year’s annual meeting of stockholders; provided, however, that if the date of the annual meeting is advanced more than 30 days prior to, or delayed by more than 60 days after, such anniversary date, the Nomination Notice to be timely must be so delivered not later than the close of business on the later of the 120th day prior to the date of such annual meeting or the 10th day following the day on which public announcement of the date of such meeting is first made. In no event shall the public announcement of an adjournment or postponement of an annual meeting or of a new record date for an annual meeting commence a new time period (or extend any time period) for the giving of a Nomination Notice as described above.




Restated By-Laws: Tiffany & Co. (DE) 11/24/19                             Page 9




D.
Maximum Number of Stockholder Nominees.
(1)
The maximum aggregate number of Stockholder Nominees nominated by Eligible Stockholders that will be included in the Corporation’s proxy materials with respect to an annual meeting of stockholders shall not exceed the greater of (i) two or (ii) 20% of the number of directors in office as of the last day on which a Nomination Notice may be delivered pursuant to this Section 1.10, or if such amount is not a whole number, the closest whole number below 20%; provided, however, that this number shall be reduced by (1) any Stockholder Nominee whose name was submitted by an Eligible Stockholder for inclusion in the Corporation’s proxy materials pursuant to this Section 1.10 but was subsequently withdrawn or was subsequently nominated by the Board of Directors for election and (2) the number of incumbent directors who were Stockholder Nominees at any of the preceding two annual meetings (including any individual covered under clause (1) above) and who have been nominated for election at the upcoming annual meeting by the Board of Directors. In the event that one or more vacancies for any reason occurs on the Board of Directors after the deadline set forth in paragraph C of this Section 1.10 but before the date of the annual meeting and the Board of Directors resolves to reduce the size of the Board of Directors in connection therewith, the maximum number shall be calculated based on the number of directors in office as so reduced.
(2) Any Eligible Stockholder submitting more than one Stockholder Nominee for inclusion in the Corporation’s proxy statement pursuant to this Section 1.10 shall rank such Stockholder Nominees based on the order in which the Eligible Stockholder desires such Stockholder Nominees to be selected for inclusion in the Corporation’s proxy statement. In the event that the number of Stockholder Nominees submitted by Eligible Stockholders pursuant to this Section 1.10 exceeds the maximum number of nominees provided for pursuant to paragraph D(1) of this Section 1.10, the highest ranking Stockholder Nominee who meets the requirements of this Section 1.10 of each Eligible Stockholder will be selected for inclusion in the Corporation’s proxy statement until the maximum number is reached, going in order by the number (largest to smallest) of shares of stock of the Corporation each Eligible Stockholder disclosed as Owned (as defined below) in its respective Nomination Notice submitted to the Corporation pursuant to this Section 1.10. If the maximum number is not reached after the highest ranking Stockholder Nominee who meets the requirements of this Section 1.10 of each Eligible Stockholder has been selected, this process will continue with the next highest ranked nominee as many times as necessary, following the same order each time, until the maximum number is reached.
E. Ownership. For purposes of this Section 1.10, an Eligible Stockholder shall be deemed to “Own” only those outstanding shares of stock of the Corporation as to which the stockholder possesses both (i) the full voting and investment rights pertaining to the shares and (ii) the full economic interest in (including the opportunity for profit and risk of loss on) such




Restated By-Laws: Tiffany & Co. (DE) 11/24/19                             Page 10





shares; provided, that the number of shares calculated in accordance with clauses (i) and (ii) shall not include any shares (1) sold by such stockholder or any of its affiliates in any transaction that has not been settled or closed, including any short sale, (2) borrowed by such stockholder or any of its affiliates for any purpose, or purchased by such stockholder or any of its affiliates subject to an agreement to resell, or (3) subject to any option, warrant, forward contract, swap, contract of sale, or other derivative or similar agreement entered into by such stockholder or any of its affiliates, whether any such instrument or agreement is to be settled with shares or with cash based on the notional amount or value of shares of stock of the Corporation, in any such case which instrument or agreement has, or is intended to have, or if exercised would have, the purpose or effect of (x) reducing in any manner, to any extent or at any time in the future, such stockholder’s or its affiliates’ full right to vote or direct the voting of any such shares, and/or (y) hedging, offsetting or altering to any degree any gain or loss realized or realizable from maintaining the full economic ownership of such shares by such stockholder or affiliate. A stockholder shall “Own” shares held in the name of a nominee or other intermediary so long as the stockholder 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. A stockholder’s Ownership of shares shall be deemed to continue during any period in which (i) the stockholder has loaned such shares, provided that the stockholder has the power to recall such loaned shares on no more than five business days’ notice and includes with the Nomination Notice an agreement that it (1) will promptly recall such loaned shares upon being notified by the Corporation that any of its Stockholder Nominees will be included in the Corporation’s proxy statement and (2) will continue to hold such recalled shares through the date of the annual meeting or (ii) the stockholder has delegated any voting power by means of a proxy, power of attorney or other instrument or arrangement that is revocable at any time by the stockholder. The terms “Owned,” “Owning” and other variations of the word “Own” shall have correlative meanings. Whether outstanding shares of stock of the Corporation are “Owned” for purposes of this Section 1.10 shall be determined by the Board of Directors (or any duly authorized committee thereof). For purposes of this Section 1.10, the term “affiliate” or “affiliates” shall have the meaning ascribed thereto under the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission promulgated under the Exchange Act.
F.
Eligible Stockholder.
(1) In order to make a nomination pursuant to this Section 1.10, an Eligible Stockholder must have Owned (as defined above) continuously for at least three years prior to and including the date of the Nomination Notice at least the number of shares of stock of the Corporation that shall constitute 3% or more of the voting power of the outstanding stock of the Corporation as of the most recent date for which such amount is given in any filing by the Corporation with the Securities and Exchange Commission prior to the submission of the Nomination Notice (the “Required Shares”) and continued to hold the Required Shares as of (i) the date on which the Nomination Notice is delivered to the Secretary in accordance with this Section 1.10, (ii) the record date for determining stockholders entitled to vote at the annual meeting and (iii) the date of the annual meeting. For this purpose, two or more funds or trusts that are (1) under common management and investment

pending or completed claim, action, suit, proceeding or investigation, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (including without limitation an action by or in the right of the Corporation) by reason of the fact that such person is or was a director or officer of the Corporation appointed by resolution of the Board of Directors, or is or was a director or officer of the Corporation appointed by resolutions of the Board of Directors serving at the request of the Corporation as a director, officer, employee, agent or other similar function of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, limited liability company, trust or other enterprise at any time during which these By-Laws are in effect (whether or not such person continues to serve in such capacity at the time any indemnification hereto is sought or at the time any proceeding relating thereto exists or is brought) (each such person an “eligible person”), against all expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, liability, loss, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by such eligible person in connection with such action, suit or proceeding if such eligible person acted in good faith and in a manner such eligible person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe such conduct was unlawful; provided, however, that in the event of any action, suit or proceeding initiated by and in the name of (or by and in the name of a nominee or agent for) a person who would otherwise be entitled to indemnification under this Section 6.01, such person shall be entitled to indemnification hereunder (and considered an eligible person) only in the event such action, suit or proceeding was initiated on the authorization of the Board of Directors. The termination of any claim, action, suit, proceeding or investigation by judgment, order, settlement, conviction, or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent, shall not, of itself, create a presumption that the person did not act in good faith and in a manner which such person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, that such person had reasonable cause to believe that their conduct was unlawful.
SECTION 6.02. Advancement of Expenses. Each eligible person under Section 6.01 shall, to the fullest extent permitted by Delaware law, subject to the limitations set forth herein, have the right to be paid by the Corporation the expenses (including attorneys’ and other professionals’ fees and disbursements and court costs) actually and reasonably incurred in defending any claim, action, suit, proceeding or investigation described in Section 6.01 in advance of its final disposition (an “advancement of expenses”) upon (a) the receipt of an undertaking (an “undertaking”) by or on behalf of such eligible person to cooperate with the Corporation and its insurers in connection with the proceeding and any related matter and to repay all amounts so advanced if it is ultimately determined by final judicial decision from which there is no further right to appeal (a “final adjudication”) that such person is not entitled to be indemnified by the Corporation for such expenses pursuant to this Section 6.02 (it being understood that no collateral securing or other assurance of performance of such undertaking shall be required of such eligible person by the Corporation) and (b) in the case of an advancement of expenses for any eligible person other than a present or former director of the Corporation, such other terms and conditions as the Corporation, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate. Notwithstanding anything in this Section 6.02 to the contrary, in the event of any action, suit or proceeding initiated by and in the name of (or by and in the name of a nominee or agent for) a person who would otherwise by entitled to advancement of expenses under this Section 6.02, such person shall only be entitled to any

advancement of expenses in the event such action, suit or proceeding was initiated on the authorization of the Board of Directors.
SECTION 6.03. Non-Exclusivity; Survival of Indemnification. The right of indemnity and advancement of expenses provided in this Article shall not be exclusive and the Corporation may provide indemnification and advancement of expenses to any person, by agreement or otherwise, on such terms and conditions as the Board of Directors may approve. Any agreement for indemnification and/or advancement of expenses of any director, officer, employee, agent or other person may provide rights to indemnification or advancement of expenses which are broader or otherwise different from those set forth herein.
No repeal or modification of this Article or of relevant provisions of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware or any other applicable laws shall affect or diminish in any way the rights of any person to indemnification or advancement of expenses under the provisions hereof with respect to any action, suit, proceeding or investigation arising out of, or relating to, any actions, transactions or facts occurring prior to the final adoption of such repeal or modification.
SECTION 6.04. Insurance. The Corporation may purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was a director or officer of the Corporation appointed by resolution of the Board of Directors, or is or was a director or officer of the Corporation appointed by resolutions of the Board of Directors serving at the request of the Corporation as a director, officer, employee, agent or other similar function of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, limited liability company, trust or other enterprise against any liability asserted against such person and incurred by such person in any such capacity or arising out of such person’s status as such, whether or not the Corporation would have the power to indemnify such person against such liability under the provisions of this Article.
