Item 4. DESCRIPTION OF SECURITIES

Not applicable.

Item 5. INTERESTS OF NAMED EXPERTS AND COUNSEL

None.

Item 6. INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS

Section 145 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “ DGCL ”) provides that a corporation may indemnify directors and officers as well as other employees and agents against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred in connection with specified actions, suits or proceedings, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (other than an action by or in the right of the corporation), if they acted in good faith and in a manner they reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with the respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe their conduct was unlawful. A similar standard is applicable in the case of derivative actions except that indemnification only extends to expenses (including attorneys’ fees) and the statute requires a court determination that the person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for such expenses before there can be any indemnification where the person seeking indemnification has been found liable to the corporation. The statute provides that it is not exclusive of other indemnification that may be granted by a corporation’s charter, bylaws, disinterested director vote, stockholder vote, agreement or otherwise.

 

- 1 -


Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL permits a corporation to provide in its certificate of incorporation that a director of the corporation shall not be personally liable to the corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, except for liability for (i) any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders, (ii) acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) payments of unlawful dividends or unlawful stock repurchases or redemptions, or (iv) for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.

The Registrant’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “ Certificate ”) limits, to the maximum extent permitted by the DGCL, the personal liability of directors for monetary damages for their conduct as a director. The Registrant’s Bylaws, as amended and restated (the “ Bylaws ”), provide that the Registrant (i) shall indemnify its directors and individuals serving at the request of the Registrant as directors of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise (including service with respect to employee benefit plans maintained or sponsored by the Registrant) and (ii) may indemnify its officers, employees and other agents, in each case, to the fullest extent permitted by law against expenses, liabilities and loss, including attorneys’ fees, judgments, fines, ERISA excise taxes or penalties and amounts paid in settlement, reasonably incurred or suffered in connection with any proceeding arising out of their status as directors, officers, employees or agents, as applicable. The Registrant’s Bylaws also allow the Registrant to purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was one of the Registrant’s directors, officers, employees or agents against any expense, liability or loss, whether or not the Registrant would have the power to indemnify the person under the DGCL.

The Registrant has also entered into indemnification agreements with directors, officers and certain employees, under which, among other things, the Registrant has agreed to indemnify the Registrant’s directors, officers and certain employees, subject to certain conditions and limitations, for certain amounts, including attorneys’ fees, judgments, fines, penalties, settlement amounts and any other amounts reasonably incurred or suffered by any such person in any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, including any action by or in the right of the Registrant, to which such person is, was or at any time becomes a party, or is threatened to be made a party, by reason of the fact that such person is, was or at any time becomes a director, officer, employee or agent of the Registrant or of any other company or enterprise with respect to which the person served in such capacity at the request of the Registrant.

Item 9. UNDERTAKINGS

A. The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes:

(1) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this Registration Statement:

(a) To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “ Securities Act ”);

(b) To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of this Registration Statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in this Registration Statement; and

(c) To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in this Registration Statement or any material change to such information in this Registration Statement.

Provided , however , that paragraphs (1)(a) and (1)(b) above do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the Registrant pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement.

(2) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(3) To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

B. The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the Registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Exchange Act (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefits plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act) that is incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

C. Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that, in the opinion of the Commission, such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
