Among other things, the Amended and Restated Bylaws update and revise the advance notice procedures for the nomination of directors or the proposal of other business at stockholder meetings; include a Delaware forum selection provision to provide that the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware (or, if the Court of Chancery does not have jurisdiction, another state court in Delaware or the federal district court for the District of Delaware) shall be the sole and exclusive forum for certain corporate law-related claims; include a federal forum selection provision for claims under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended; update certain provisions related to stockholder meetings, including clarifying the Board may cancel, postpone or reschedule any previously scheduled annual meeting of stockholders; and make a variety of other language and conforming changes and other technical edits and updates (including to account for changes in Delaware law).
