Commencing with the election of directors at the Corporation’s 2022 annual meeting of stockholders, all directors shall be elected annually for terms of one year, and each director elected at and after the 2022 annual meeting of stockholders shall hold office until the next succeeding annual meeting of stockholders and until his or her successor has been elected and qualified, subject, however, to such director’s earlier death, resignation, retirement, disqualification or removal. Each director elected prior to the 2021 annual meeting of stockholders for a term extending beyond the 2022 annual meeting of stockholders shall, notwithstanding such term, hold office only until the 2022 annual meeting of stockholders and until his or her successor has been elected and qualified, subject, however, to such director’s earlier death, resignation, retirement, disqualification or removal.

B. Vacancies; Removal. Subject to the terms of any Preferred Stock, any vacancy on the Board of Directors that results from an increase in the number of directors may be filled only by the affirmative vote of a majority of the Board of Directors then in office, provided that a quorum is present, and any other vacancy occurring on the Board of Directors may be filled only by the affirmative vote of a majority of the Board of Directors then in office, even if less than a quorum, or by a sole remaining director. Any director elected to fill a vacancy resulting from an increase in the number of directors shall hold office until the next annual meeting of stockholders and until his or her successor has been elected and qualified, subject, however, to such director’s earlier death, resignation, retirement, disqualification or removal. Subject to the rights, if any, of the holders of Preferred Stock, any or all of the directors of the Corporation may be removed from office at any time, with or without cause, and then only upon the affirmative vote of the holders of not less than a majority of the Corporation’s then outstanding Common Stock then entitled to vote at an election of directors.

The Corporation’s Bylaws also may be adopted, amended, altered or repealed by the affirmative vote of the holders of not less than a majority of the Corporation’s then outstanding Common Stock; provided, however that notwithstanding any other provision of this Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation or the Corporation’s Bylaws (and in addition to any other vote that may be required by law), the affirmative vote or


holders of not less than 66⅔% of the Corporation’s then outstanding Common Stock shall be required to alter, amend or repeal, in whole or in part, Sections 2.02, 2.03 or Section 9.01 of the Corporation’s Bylaws or to adopt any bylaw inconsistent with the purpose and intent of the foregoing provisions.
