Article II, Sections 1 and 2 of the By-Laws have been revised to clarify that, to the extent permitted under the Delaware General Corporation Law (“DGCL”), annual and special meetings of stockholders may be held by means of remote communication. Confirming changes were made elsewhere in the By-Laws, including Article II, Section 6. In addition, Article III, Section 7 of the By-Laws has been revised to clarify that regular and special meetings of the Board may be held by means of remote communication, and Article III, Section 10 of the By-Laws has been revised to further clarify that written action taken without a meeting may be evidenced by electronic transmission.

Article V, Section 9 of the By-Laws has been revised to provide that, unless the Company consents in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, the federal district courts of the United States shall be the exclusive forum for any action asserting a cause of action arising under the Securities Act of 1933 or any rule or regulation promulgated thereunder, to the fullest extent permitted by law.

Article VII, Section 1 of the By-Laws regarding Emergency By-Laws has been revised to specifically reference epidemics, pandemics and declarations of national emergency by the United States government as conditions triggering the Emergency By-Laws. In addition, other revisions are made to Article VII to conform to recent amendments to Section 110 of the DGCL.
