(c) Power to Sell and Purchase Shares. Subject to the requirements of applicable law, the Corporation shall have the power to issue and sell all or any part of any shares of any class of stock herein or hereafter authorized to such persons, and for such consideration, as the Board of Directors shall from time to time, in its discretion, determine, whether or not greater consideration could be received upon the issue or sale of the same number of shares of another class, and as otherwise permitted by law. Subject to the requirements of applicable law, the Corporation shall have the power to purchase any shares of any class of stock herein or hereafter authorized from such persons, and for such consideration, as the Board of Directors shall from time to time, in its discretion, determine, whether or not less consideration could be paid upon the purchase of the same number of shares of another class, and as otherwise permitted by law.
FIFTH: The following provisions are inserted for the management of the business and the conduct of the affairs of the Corporation, and for further definition, limitation and regulation of the powers of the Corporation and of its directors and stockholders:
(a) The business and affairs of the Corporation shall be managed by or under the direction of the Board of Directors.

(d) Election of the directors need not be by written ballot unless the Bylaws shall so provide. If authorized by the Board of Directors, any requirement of a written ballot shall be satisfied by a ballot submitted by electronic transmission, provided that any such electronic transmission must either set forth or be submitted with information from which it can be determined that the electronic transmission was authorized by the stockholder or proxy holder.
(e) Subject to the terms of any one or more classes or series of Preferred Stock, any vacancy on the Board of Directors that results from an increase in the number of directors may be filled by 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, except as otherwise provided in this Article FIFTH, may be filled by a majority of the Board of Directors then in office, even if less than a quorum, or by a sole remaining director. Any director or the whole Board of Directors may be removed from office at any time, with or without cause. Except as otherwise prohibited by law, the stockholders may remove any director and fill any vacancy on the Board of Directors created by such removal. Notwithstanding the foregoing, whenever the holders of any one or more classes or series of Preferred Stock issued by the Corporation shall have the right, voting separately by class or series, to elect directors at an annual or special meeting of stockholders, the election, term of office, removal, filling of vacancies and other
features of such directorships shall be governed by the terms of this Third Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation applicable thereto.
(f) In addition to the powers and authority herein before or by statute expressly conferred upon them, the directors are hereby empowered to exercise all such powers and do all such acts and things as may be exercised or done by the Corporation, subject, nevertheless, to the provisions of the GCL, this Third Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, and any Bylaws adopted by the stockholders.
SIXTH: To the full extent that the General Corporation Law, as it exists on the date hereof or may hereafter be amended, permits the limitation or elimination of the liability of directors, a director of the Corporation shall not be liable to the Corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director. Any amendment to or repeal of this Article SIXTH shall not adversely affect any right or protection of a director of the Corporation for or with respect to any acts or omissions of such director occurring prior to such amendment or repeal.
SEVENTH: (a) The Corporation shall indemnify its directors and officers to the fullest extent authorized or permitted by law, as now or hereafter in effect, and such right to indemnification shall continue as to a person who has ceased to be a director or officer of the Corporation and shall inure to the benefit of his or her heirs, executors and personal and legal representatives; provided, however, that, except for proceedings to enforce rights to
indemnification, the Corporation shall not be obligated to indemnify any director or officer (or his or her heirs, executors or personal or legal representatives) in connection with a proceeding (or part thereof) initiated by such person unless such proceeding (or part thereof) was authorized or consented to by the Board of Directors.

(d) The Corporation may maintain insurance, at its expense, to protect itself and any director, officer, employee or agent of the Corporation or of another corporation or a partnership, joint venture, limited liability company, trust or other enterprise against any
expense, liability or loss, whether or not the Corporation would have the power to indemnify such person against such expense, liability or loss under the GCL.
(e) The provisions of this Article SEVENTH shall be deemed to be a contract right between the Corporation and each person that is entitled to indemnification or advancement of expenses pursuant to this Article SEVENTH at any time while this Article SEVENTH and relevant provisions of the GCL or other applicable law are in effect, and any repeal or modification of this Article SEVENTH or any such law shall not in any way diminish or adversely affect any rights to indemnification or to the advancement of expenses of a director or officer of the Corporation existing at the time of such repeal or modification with respect to any acts, omissions, transactions or facts occurring prior to such repeal or modification.
EIGHTH: Special meetings of the stockholders of the Corporation may be called (i) by the Board of Directors, (ii) by the Chairman of the Board of Directors, (iii) by the President or (iv) upon the request of the holders of at least twenty percent (20%) of the voting power of all shares of capital stock of the Corporation entitled generally to vote on the election of directors of the Corporation (without reference to any terms of any preferred stock providing for special voting rights or restrictions with respect to particular matters) (the “Voting Stock”) then outstanding. The affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the Voting Stock shall be required to alter, amend or repeal, or to adopt any provision inconsistent with, this Article EIGTH or Article II, Section 3 of the Bylaws.
NINTH: 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 stockholders of the Corporation, and the ability of the stockholders to consent in writing to the taking of any action is hereby specifically denied.
TENTH: The Board of Directors shall have the power to adopt, amend or repeal the Bylaws of the Corporation; provided, however, the Board of Directors may not repeal or amend any bylaw that the stockholders have expressly provided may not be amended or repealed by the Board of Directors.
