revise and adopt certain provisions to reflect Rule 14a-19 (the “Universal Proxy Rules”) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), including applicable notice and solicitation requirements, and provide the Company with remedies if a stockholder fails to satisfy the Universal Proxy Rules requirements;

enhance certain procedural mechanics and disclosure requirements in connection with stockholder nominations of directors, including requiring additional background information, disclosures, and representations from director nominees, such as a description of all direct and indirect compensation and other material monetary arrangements during the past three years, and any other material relationships between or among the stockholder or any of their affiliates or associates, on the one hand, and each proposed nominee and such nominee’s affiliates and associates, on the other hand, and a description of any position of such proposed nominee as an officer or director of any principal competitor of the Company within the past three years;
require that the number of nominees a stockholder may nominate for election at a stockholder meeting may not exceed the number of directors to be elected at such meeting;
require that any stockholder directly or indirectly soliciting proxies from other stockholders must use a proxy card color other than white, with the white proxy card being reserved for exclusive use by the Board;
eliminate provisions regarding the availability of the list of stockholders entitled to vote at a meeting of stockholders to align with recent amendments to the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware; and
