For business to be properly brought before an annual meeting by a stockholder pursuant to clause (d) of the preceding paragraph, such business must be a proper subject for stockholder action under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware and the stockholder must have given timely notice of such business in writing to the secretary of the corporation not less than one hundred and twenty (120) days nor more than one hundred and fifty (150) days prior to the anniversary date of the immediately preceding annual meeting. A stockholder153s notice to the secretary of the corporation shall set forth as to each matter the stockholder proposes to bring before the annual meeting (a) a brief description of the business desired to be brought before the meeting, the reasons for conducting such business at the meeting, and any material interest of the stockholder or the beneficial owner, if any, in such business; and (b) a description of all agreements, arrangements and understandings between such stockholder or the beneficial owner, if any, and any other person or persons (including their names) in connection with the proposal of such business by such stockholder.

Nothing in this Section shall be deemed to affect any rights of (a) stockholders to request inclusion of proposals in the corporation153s proxy statement pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act or (b) the holders of any series of preferred stock if and to the extent provided for under law, the certificate of incorporation or these by-laws.

Section 2. Special Meetings. Special meetings of the stockholders may be called only by the chairman, the president or the board of directors pursuant to a resolution approved by a majority of the entire board of directors. Only such business shall be conducted at a special meeting of stockholders as shall have been brought before the meeting of stockholders pursuant to the corporation153s notice of meeting.

Section 3. Stockholder Action; How Taken. Any action required or permitted to be taken by the stockholders of the corporation must be effected at a duly called annual or special meeting of such holders and may not be effected by any consent in writing by such holders.

If mailed, such notice shall be deemed to be delivered when deposited in the United States mails in a sealed envelope addressed to the stockholder at his address as it appears on the records of the corporation with postage thereon prepaid.

For the purpose of determining (a) stockholders entitled to notice of or to vote at any meeting of stockholders, or (b) stockholders entitled to receive payment of any dividend, or (c) stockholders for any other purpose, the board of directors may fix in advance a date as the record date for any such determination of stockholders, such date in any case to be not more than sixty days and not less than ten days, or in the case of a merger or consolidation not less than twenty days prior to the date on which the particular action, requiring such determination of stockholders is to be taken.

Section 7. Quorum. The holders of not less than one-third of the stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote thereat, present in person or represented by proxy, shall be requisite and shall constitute a quorum at all meetings of the stockholders for the transaction of business except as otherwise provided by statute, by the certificate of incorporation or by these by-laws. If, however, such quorum shall not be present or represented at any meeting of the stockholders, the chairman of the meeting shall have the power to adjourn the meeting from time to time, without notice other than announcement at the meeting, until a quorum shall be present or represented. At such adjourned meeting at which a quorum shall be present or represented, any business may be transacted which might have been transacted at the meeting as originally notified.

When a quorum is present at any meeting, the vote of the holders of a majority of the stock having voting power present in person or represented by proxy shall decide any question brought before such meeting, unless the question is one upon which by express provision of the statutes or of the certificate of incorporation or of these by-laws, a different vote is required in which case such express provision shall govern and control the decision of such question.

Section 8. Notices; Required Stockholder Information. A stockholder153s notice of director nominations to be brought before an annual or special meeting as permitted by Article III, Section 1 and a stockholder153s notice of other business to be brought before an annual meeting as permitted by Article II, Section 1, Clause (d), shall, in addition to the information required by such Sections, set forth the following as to the stockholder giving the notice and the beneficial owner, if any, on whose behalf the nomination or business proposal is made:

(d) any other information relating to such stockholder and beneficial owner, if any, that would be required by Section 14 of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder to be included in a proxy statement or other filings required to be made in connection with solicitations of proxies for the proposal or the election of directors in a contested election, as applicable, if Section 14 of the Exchange Act were applicable.

Section 9. Qualifications of Voters. The board of directors may fix a day and hour not more than sixty nor less than ten days prior to the day of holding any meeting of stockholders as the time as of which the stockholders entitled to notice of and to vote at such a meeting shall be determined. Only those persons who were holders of record of voting stock at such time shall b entitled to notice of and to vote at such meeting.

Section 10. Procedure. The order of business and all other matters of procedure at every meeting of stockholders shall be determined by the chairman of the meeting. The board of directors shall appoint two or more inspectors of election to serve at every meeting of stockholders at which directors are to be elected. The chairman of the meeting may adjourn or postpone a meeting of stockholders with or without the approval of the stockholders present and voting. In no event shall the adjournment of an annual or special meeting commence a new time period for the giving of a stockholder153s notice as described in Article II, Section 1 or Article III, Section 1.

ARTICLE III

Directors

Section 1. Number, Election and Terms. Except as otherwise fixed pursuant to the provisions of Article Fourth of the certificate of incorporation relating to the rights of the holders of any class or series of stock having a preference over the common stock as to dividends or upon liquidation to elect additional directors under specified circumstances, the number of directors shall be fixed from time to time by the board of directors but shall not be less than three. The directors, other than those who may be elected by the holders of any class or series of stock having a preference over the common stock as to dividends or upon liquidation, shall be classified, with respect to the time for which they severally hold office, into three classes, as near equal in number as possible, as determined by the board of directors, one class to hold office initially for a term expiring at the annual meeting of stockholders to be held in 1986, another

4



class to hold office initially for a term expiring at the annual meeting of stockholders to be held in 1987 and another class to hold office initially for a term expiring at the annual meeting of stockholders to be held in 1988, with the members of each class to hold office until their successors are elected and qualified. At each annual meeting of stockholders, the successors of the class of directors whose term expires at that meeting shall be elected to hold office for a term expiring at the annual meeting of stockholders held in the third year following the year of their election.

The term the "entire board" as used in these by-laws means the total number of directors which the corporation would have if there were no vacancies.

Except as provided in Section 2 of this Article, each director shall be elected by the vote of the majority of the votes cast with respect to the director at any meeting for the election of directors at which a quorum is present, provided, however, that directors shall be elected by a plurality of the votes cast at any meeting of stockholders for which (i) the Secretary of the corporation receives a notice that a stockholder has nominated a person for election to the board in compliance with the advance notice requirements for stockholder nominees for director set forth in this Section and (ii) such nomination has not been withdrawn by such stockholder as of a date that is 10 days in advance of the date the corporation files its definitive proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (regardless of whether or not thereafter revised or supplemented). For purposes of this Section, 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. The Nominating & Governance Committee has established procedures regarding the tender to the board by directors of advance resignations to address majority voting. The Nominating & Governance Committee shall make a recommendation to the board on whether to accept or reject a resignation, or whether other action should be taken. The board shall act on the Committee153s recommendation and publicly disclose its decision and the rationale behind it in a Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission within 90 days from the date of the certification of the election results.

Subject to the rights of holders of any class or series of stock having a preference over the common stock as to dividends or upon liquidation, nominations for the election of directors may be made by the board of directors or a committee appointed by the board of directors or by any stockholder entitled to vote in the election of directors generally. However, any stockholder entitled to vote in the election of directors generally may nominate one or more persons for election as directors at a meeting only if written notice of such stockholder153s intent to make such nomination or nominations has been given, either by personal delivery or by United States mail, postage prepaid, to the secretary of the corporation not later than (a) with respect to an election to be held at an annual meeting of stockholders, one hundred and twenty (120) days prior to the anniversary date of the immediately preceding annual meeting, and (b) with respect to an election to be held at a special meeting of stockholders for the election of directors, the close of business on the tenth day following the date on which notice of such meeting is first given to stockholders. Each such notice shall set forth: (a) the name and address of the stockholder who intends to make the nomination and of the person or persons to be nominated; (b) a representation that the stockholder is a holder of record of stock of the corporation entitled to vote at such meeting and

5



intends to appear in person or by proxy at the meeting to nominate the person or persons specified in the notice; (c) a description of all arrangements or understandings between the stockholder and each nominee and any other person or persons, naming such person or persons, pursuant to which the nomination or nominations are to be made by the stockholder; (d) such other information regarding each nominee proposed by such stockholder as would be required to be included in a proxy statement filed pursuant to the proxy rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission; (e) the consent of each nominee to serve as a director of the corporation if so elected; and (f) a statement as to whether each nominee, if elected, intends to tender, promptly following such nominee153s election or re-election, an irrevocable resignation effective upon such nominee153s failure to receive the required vote for re-election at the next meeting at which such nominee would face re-election and the acceptance of such resignation by the board of directors, in accordance with the corporation153s Corporate Governance Guidelines. The chairman of the meeting may refuse to acknowledge the nomination of any person not made in compliance with the foregoing procedure.

Section 2. Newly Created Directorships and Vacancies. Except as otherwise fixed pursuant to the provisions of Article Fourth of the certificate of incorporation relating to the rights of the holders of any class or series of stock having a preference over the common stock as to dividends or upon liquidation to elect directors under specified circumstances, newly created directorships resulting from any increase in the number of directors and any vacancies on the board of directors resulting from death, resignation, disqualification, removal or other cause shall be filled solely by the affirmative vote of a majority of the remaining directors then in office, even though less than a quorum of the board of directors. Any director elected in accordance with the preceding sentence shall be a member of the class of directors in which the new directorship was created or the vacancy occurred and shall be submitted to a stockholder vote at the next annual meeting of stockholders. No decrease in the number of directors constituting the board of directors shall shorten the term of any incumbent director.

Section 3. Removal. Subject to the rights of any class or series of stock having a preference over the common stock as to dividends or upon liquidation to elect directors under specified circumstances, any director may be removed from office, for cause, only by the affirmative vote of the holders of 80% of the combined voting power of the then outstanding shares of stock entitled to vote generally in the election of directors, voting together as a single class.

Section 4. Regular Meetings. Regular meetings of the board of directors shall be held at such times and place as the board of directors may from time to time determine.

Section 5. Special Meetings. Special meetings of the board of directors may be called by or at the request of the chairman or the president or by any officer of the corporation upon the request of a majority of the entire board. The person or persons authorized to call special meetings of the board of directors may fix any place, either within or without Delaware, as the place for holding any special meeting of the board of directors called by them.

6



Section 6. Notice. Notice of regular meetings of the board of directors need not be given. Notice of every special meeting of the board of directors shall be given to each director at his usual place of business, or at such other address as shall have been furnished by him for the purpose. Such notice shall be given at least twenty-four hours before the meeting by telephone or by being personally delivered, mailed or telegraphed. Such notice need not include a statement of the business to be transacted at, or the purpose of, any such meeting.

Section 7. Quorum. A majority of the entire Board shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business at any meeting of the board of directors, provided, that if less than a majority of the entire board is present at said meeting, a majority of the directors present may adjourn the meeting from time to time without further notice. The act of the majority of the directors present at a meeting at which a quorum is present shall be the act of the board of directors unless the act of a greater number is required by the certificate of incorporation or the by-laws of the corporation.

Section 8. Compensation. Directors who are also full time employees of the corporation shall not receive any compensation for their services as directors but they may be reimbursed for reasonable expenses of attendance. By resolution of the board of directors, all other directors may receive either an annual fee or a fee for each meeting attended, or both, and expenses of attendance, if any, at each regular or special meeting of the board of directors; provided, that nothing herein contained shall be construed to preclude any director from serving the corporation in any other capacity and receiving compensation therefor.

Section 9. Committees. The board of directors may, by resolution passed by a majority of the whole board, designate one or more committees, each committee to consist of two or more of the directors of the corporation, which, to the extent provided in the resolution, shall have and may exercise the powers of the board of directors in the management of the business and affairs of the corporation and may authorize the seal of the corporation to be affixed to all papers which may require it. Such committee or committees shall have such name or names as may be determined form time to time by resolution adopted by the board of directors. Each committee shall keep regular minutes of its meetings and report the same to the board of directors when required.

Section 10. Director Emeritus. The board of directors may by resolution appoint any former director who has retired from the board of directors as a Director Emeritus. Directors Emeritus may, but are not required to attend all meetings (regular and special) of the board of directors and will receive notice of such meetings; however, they shall not have the right to vote and they shall be excluded from the number of directors for quorum and other purposes. Directors Emeritus shall be appointed for one year terms and may be reappointed for up to two additional one year terms.

Section 11. Independence. No nominee shall be eligible for election to the board of directors unless such nominee has provided such information as the corporation has reasonably requested to determine the eligibility of such nominee to serve as an independent director of the corporation.

When it is determined in good faith by any two or more directors (including directors appointed pursuant to Section 6 herein) that (1) a national emergency exists, and (2) they are in a position to carry on the management of the business and affairs of the corporation, then they shall constitute themselves, and by these by-laws they are hereby appointed, members of the Committee. The number of members shall be not less than two. An established committee shall increase its membership to include additional directors who are able to serve. Directors (including officers designated "directors" pursuant to Section 6 herein) who have been appointed to the Committee shall remain members until removed due to death, disappearance, or refusal or inability to act. When a quorum of the board of directors (not including officers designated "directors" pursuant to Section 6 herein) becomes available to manage the business and affairs of the corporation, the Committee shall dissolve and re-form as the board of directors pursuant to other sections of these by-laws.

Section 4. Meetings, Notice, Quorum.
