DIRECTORS - MANAGEMENT

 

Section 1.         Powers, Standard of Care.

 

1.1         Powers. Subject to the provisions of the Nevada Revised Statutes (hereinafter the “Code”), and subject to any limitations in the Articles of Incorporation of the Corporation relating to action required to be approved by the Shareholders, as that term is defined in the Code, or by the outstanding shares, as that term is defined in the Code, the business and affairs of the Corporation shall be managed and all corporate powers shall be exercised by or under the direction of the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors may delegate the management of the day-to-day operation of the business of the Corporation to a management company or other persons, provided that the business and affairs of the Corporation shall be managed, and all corporate powers shall be exercised, under the ultimate direction of the Board.

 

1.2         Standard of Care; Liability.

 

1.2.1         Each Director shall exercise such powers and otherwise perform such duties, in good faith, in the matters such Director believes to be in the best interests of the Corporation, and with such care, including reasonable inquiry, using ordinary prudence, as a person in a like position would use under similar circumstances.

 

1.2.2         In performing the duties of a Director, a Director shall be entitled to rely on information, opinions, reports, or statements, including financial statements and other financial data, in which case prepared or presented by:

 

1

 

 

(1)         One or more officers or employees of the Corporation whom the Director believes to be reliable and competent in the matters presented,

 

(2)         Counsel, independent accountants, or other persons as to which the Director believes to be within such person’s professional or expert competence, or

 

(3)         A Committee of the Board upon which the Director does not serve, as to matters within its designated authority, which committee the Director believes to merit confidence, so long as in any such case the Director acts in good faith, after reasonable inquiry when the need therefore is indicated by the circumstances and without knowledge that would cause such reliance to be unwarranted.

 

Section 2.         Number and Qualification of Directors. The authorized number of Directors of the Corporation shall be not less than one nor more than 11 until changed by a duly adopted amendment to the Articles of Incorporation or by an amendment to the Bylaws. The exact number of directors may be fixed within the limits specified by resolution adopted by the vote of the majority of directors in office; but no reduction of the number of directors shall have the effect of removing any director prior to the expiration of his or her term.

 

Section 3.         Election and Term of Office of Directors.

 

3.1         Directors shall be elected at each annual meeting of the Shareholders to hold office until the next annual meeting. If any such annual meeting of Shareholders is not held or the Directors are not elected thereat, the Directors may be elected at any special meeting of Shareholders held for that purpose. Each Director, including a Director elected to fill a vacancy, shall hold office until the expiration of the term for which elected and until a successor has been elected and qualified.

 

3.2         Except as may otherwise be provided herein, or in the Articles of Incorporation by way of cumulative voting rights, the members of the Board of Directors of this Corporation, who need not be shareholders, shall be elected by a majority of the votes cast at a meeting of shareholders, by the holders of shares of stock present in person or by proxy, entitled to vote in the election.

 

Section 4.         Vacancies.

 

4.1         A vacancy or vacancies on the Board of Directors shall be deemed to exist in the event of the death, resignation, or removal of any Director, or if the Board of Directors by resolution declares vacant the office of a Director who has been declared of unsound mind by an order of court or convicted of a felony, or if the authorized number of directors be increased, or if the shareholders fail, at any annual or special meeting of shareholders at which any director or directors are elected, to elect the full authorized number of directors to be voted for at the meeting.

 

4.2         Vacancies on the Board of Directors, except for a vacancy created by the removal of a Director, may be filled by a majority of the remaining Directors, though less than a quorum, or by a sole remaining Director. Each Director so elected shall hold office until the next annual meeting of the Shareholders or until a successor has been otherwise elected and qualified.

4.3         The Shareholders may elect a Director or Directors to fill a vacancy or vacancies only if there are no Directors in office.

 

4.4         Any Director may resign, effective upon giving written notice to the Chairman of the Board, the President, the Secretary, or the Board of Directors, unless the notice specifies a later time for that resignation to become effective. When one or more directors give notice of his or her or their resignation from the Board of Directors, effective at a future date, the Board may fill the vacancy or vacancies to take effect when the resignation or resignations become effective, each Director so appointed to hold office during the remainder of the term of office of the resigning Director(s).

 

4.5         No reduction of the authorized number of Directors shall have the effect of removing any Director before that Director’s term of office expires.

5.2         No Director may be removed (unless the entire Board is removed) when the votes cast against removal or not consenting in writing to such removal would be sufficient to elect such Director if voted cumulatively at an election at which the same total number of votes were cast (or, if such action is taken by written consent, all shares entitled to vote, were voted) and the entire number of Directors authorized at the time of the Director’s most recent election were then being elected; and when by the provisions of the Articles of Incorporation the holders of the shares of any class or series voting as a class or series are entitled to elect one or more Directors, any Director so elected may be removed only by the applicable vote of the holders of the shares of that class or series.

 

Section 6.         Place of Meetings. Regular meetings of the Board of Directors shall be held at any place within or outside the state that has been designated from time to time by resolution of the Board.

1.2         To the extent permitted by law, the Board of Directors may authorize the issuance of certificates for fractions of a share of stock which shall entitle the holder to exercise voting rights, receive dividends and participate in liquidating distributions, in proportion to the fractional holdings; or it may authorize the payment in cash of the fair value of fractions of a share of stock as of the time when those entitled to receive such fractions are determined; or it may authorize the issuance, subject to such conditions as may be permitted by law, of scrip in registered or bearer form over the signature of an officer or agent of the Corporation, exchangeable as therein provided for full shares of stock, but such scrip shall not entitle the holder to any rights of a Shareholder, except as therein provided.

The holder of any certificate representing shares of stock of the Corporation shall immediately notify the Corporation of any loss or destruction of the certificate representing the same. The Corporation may issue a new certificate in the place of any certificate theretofore issued by it, alleged to have been lost or destroyed. On production of such evidence of loss or destruction as the Board of Directors in its discretion may require, the Board of Directors may, in its discretion, require the owner of the lost or destroyed certificate, or his or her legal representatives, to give the Corporation a bond in such sum as the Board may direct, and with such surety or sureties as may be satisfactory to the Board, to indemnify the Corporation against any claims, loss, liability, or damage it may suffer on account of the issuance of the new certificate. A new certificate may be issued without requiring any such evidence or bond when, in the judgment of the Board of Directors, it is proper to do so.

 

Section 3.         Transfer of Shares.

 

3.1         Transfer of shares of stock of the Corporation shall be made on the stock ledger of the Corporation only by the holder of record thereof, in person or by his or her duly authorized attorney, upon surrender for cancellation of the certificate or certificates representing such shares of stock with an assignment or power of transfer endorsed thereon or delivered therewith, duly executed, with such proof of the authenticity of the signature and of authority to transfer and of payment of taxes as the Corporation or its agents may require.

 

3.2         The Corporation shall be entitled to treat the holder of record of any share or shares of stock as the absolute owner thereof for all purposes and, accordingly, shall not be bound to recognize any legal, equitable or other claim to, or interest in, such share or shares of stock on the part of any other person, whether or not it shall have express or other notice thereof, except as otherwise expressly provided by law.

 

Section 4.         Record Date. In lieu of closing the stock ledger of the Corporation, the Board of Directors may fix, in advance, a date not exceeding 60 calendar days, nor less than ten calendar days, as the record date for the determination of Shareholders entitled to receive notice of, or to vote at, any meeting of Shareholders, or to consent to any proposal without a meeting, or for the purpose of determining Shareholders entitled to receive payment of any dividends or allotment of any rights, or for the purpose of any other action. If no record date is fixed, the record date for the determination of Shareholders entitled to notice of, or to vote at, a meeting of Shareholders shall be at the close of business on the day next preceding the day on which the notice is given, or, if no notice is given, the day preceding the day on which the meeting is held. The record date for determining Shareholders for any other purpose shall be at the close of business on the day on which the resolution of the Directors relating thereto is adopted. When a determination of Shareholders of record entitled to notice of, or to vote at, any meeting of Shareholders has been made, as provided for herein, such determination shall apply to any adjournment thereof, unless the Directors fix a new record date for the adjourned meeting.

INDEMNITY

 

Section 1.         Every person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to or is involved in any action, suit, appeal, or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative, or investigative, whether formal or informal, and whether brought by or in the right of the Corporation, its security holders or otherwise by reason of the fact that he or she or a person of whom he or she is the legal representative is or was a Director or officer of the Corporation or is or was serving at the request of the corporation or for its benefit as a Director, officer, employee, or agent of another corporation, or as its representative in a partnership, joint venture, trust, or other enterprise, shall be indemnified and held harmless to the fullest extent legally permissible under the general corporation law of the State of Nevada from time to time against all expenses, liability and loss (including, without limitation attorneys’ fees and disbursements, judgments, fine penalties, damage, punitive damages, excise tax assessed with respect to an employee benefit plan, amounts paid or to be paid in settlement and cost or expense of any nature) reasonably incurred or suffered by him or her in connection therewith. The Board of Directors may, in its discretion, cause the expense of officers and Directors incurred in defending a civil or criminal action, suit, or proceeding to be paid by the Corporation as they are incurred and in advance of the final disposition of the action, suit, or proceeding upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of the Director or officer to repay the amount if it is ultimately determined by a court of competent jurisdiction that he or she is not entitled to be indemnified by the corporation. No such person shall be indemnified against, or be reimbursed for, any expense or payments incurred in connection with any claim or liability established to have arisen out of his or her own willful misconduct or gross negligence. Any right of indemnification shall not be exclusive of any other right which such Directors, officers or representatives may have or hereafter acquire and, which such directors, officers, or representatives may have or hereafter acquire and, without limiting the generality of such statement, they shall be entitled to their respective rights of indemnification under any bylaw, agreement, vote of shareholders, provision of law or otherwise, as well as their rights under this Article. This provision will not apply to actions arising under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

Section 2.         The Board of Directors may cause the corporation to purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was a Director or officer of the Corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the Corporation as a Director or officer of another corporation, or as its representative in a partnership, joint venture, trust, or other enterprise against any liability asserted against such person and incurred in any such capacity or arising out of such status, whether or not the Corporation would have the power to indemnify such person.

 

Section 3.         The Board of Directors may from time to time adopt further Bylaws with respect to indemnification and may amend these and such Bylaws to the full extent permitted by the Code.

 

ARTICLE XI

MISCELLANEOUS

 

Section 1.         Shareholders Agreements. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Article X to the contrary, in the event the Corporation elects to become a close corporation, an agreement between two or more Shareholders thereof, if in writing and signed by the parties thereto, may provide that in exercising any voting rights, the shares held by them shall be voted as provided therein, and may otherwise modify the provisions contained in Article IV, herein as to Shareholders’ meetings and actions.

 

Section 2.         Effect of Shareholders Agreements. Any Shareholders’ Agreement authorized by the Code, shall only be effective to modify the terms of these Bylaws if the Corporation elects to become a close corporation with the appropriate filing of an amendment to its Articles of Incorporation as required by the Code and shall terminate when the Corporation ceases to be a close corporation. Such an agreement cannot waive or alter the Sections of the Code. Any other provisions of the Code or these Bylaws may be altered or waived thereby, but to the extent they are not so altered or waived, these Bylaws shall be applicable.
