For purposes of calculating the pro rata allocation of partial dividend payments, the Corporation shall allocate those payments so that the respective amounts of those payments bear the same ratio to each other as all accrued and unpaid dividends per share on the Series B Preferred Stock and all Parity Securities (which, in the case of any such Parity Securities shall not include any accumulation in respect of unpaid dividends for past dividend periods if such Parity Securities do not have a cumulative dividend) bear to each other.

Except as provided in the preceding paragraphs of this Section 4(e), this Certificate of Designations will not prohibit or otherwise restrict the declaration or payment of any dividend or distribution on Junior Securities or Parity Securities.

(h) Treatment of Dividends When the Redemption Date or Extinguishment Date Occurs After a Record Date and on or Before the Related Dividend Payment Date. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Certificate of Designations, if the Redemption Date or Extinguishment Date for any share of Series B Preferred Stock to be redeemed or extinguished is after the Record Date for any declared dividend and on or prior to the related Dividend Payment Date, then (i) the Holder of record of such share as of the close of business on such Record Date shall receive such dividend on or, at the Corporation’s election, before such Dividend Payment Date, notwithstanding such redemption or extinguishment, as applicable; and (ii) the Redemption Price (in the case of a redemption) or the Setoff Price (in the case of an extinguishment) will not include any accrued dividends in respect of the Dividend Period corresponding to such declared dividend referred to in this Section 4(h).

After payment of the full amount of such liquidating distributions, the Holders will not be entitled to any further participation in any distribution of assets by, and shall have no right or claim to any remaining assets of, the Corporation.

(b) In the event the assets of the Corporation available for distribution to stockholders upon any liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the affairs of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, shall be insufficient to pay in full the amounts payable with respect to all outstanding shares of the Series B Preferred Stock and amounts payable on any Parity Securities, Holders and the holders of such Parity Securities shall share ratably in any distribution of assets of the Corporation in proportion to their full respective liquidating distributions (including, if applicable, accrued and unpaid dividends) to which they would otherwise be respectively entitled.

In the case of any such rescission, the Corporation will, as soon as reasonably practicable, send notice of the same to each Holder.

(c) Redemption Notice. In order to exercise its right to redeem the Series B Preferred Stock pursuant to Section 7(a) or its requirement to redeem the Series B Preferred Stock pursuant to Section 7(b), the Corporation shall send notice (in accordance with Section 13) of such redemption (a “Redemption Notice”) not less than 30 days (and, in the case of a redemption pursuant to Section 7(a), no more than 60 days) prior to the date fixed for redemption (the “Redemption Date”) to the Holders, stating:

(i) the Redemption Date;

(ii) the Redemption Price; and

accrue on such shares of Series B Preferred Stock, such shares of Series B Preferred Stock shall no longer be deemed outstanding and all rights of the holders of such shares will terminate, except the right to receive the Redemption Price. In the event that any Redemption Date shall not be a Business Day, then payment of the Redemption Price need not be made on such Redemption Date but may be made on the next succeeding Business Day with the same force and effect as if made on such redemption date and no interest or other sums shall accrue on the amount so payable for the period from and after such Redemption Date to such next succeeding Business Day.

Upon surrender, in accordance with such notice, of the certificates representing shares of Series B Preferred Stock to be so redeemed (or, in the case of shares of Series B Preferred Stock held in book-entry form through the Depositary, upon satisfaction of the applicable procedures of the Depositary with respect to redemptions), such shares of Series B Preferred Stock shall be redeemed by the Corporation at the Redemption Price.

Pursuant to Section 5(c)(i) of the Warrant Agreement, the Setoff Price for the Series B Preferred Stock to be extinguished pursuant to the preceding sentence will be applied to reduce (in whole or in part) the amount payable in respect of the Aggregate Strike Price for such exercised Warrants. Upon the Holder’s exercise of the Extinguishment Right with respect to any shares of Series B Preferred Stock, the Corporation shall extinguish and cancel such shares of Series B Preferred Stock pursuant to this Section 8. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Setoff Price for any shares of Series B Preferred Stock that are extinguished is less than the Aggregate Strike Price due in respect of the exercise of any Warrant, then the shortfall must be paid in cash or by the extinguishment of additional share(s) of Series B Preferred Stock by the Holder.

(b) Extinguishment Demand.

- 11 -


(i) Whenever dividends on any shares of Series B Preferred Stock or any other series of Voting Preferred Stock shall not have been declared and paid, on a cumulative basis, for the equivalent of four or more Dividend Periods, whether or not consecutive (a “Nonpayment Event”), the number of directors then constituting the Board of Directors shall (subject to the terms of the Certificate of Incorporation) automatically be increased by two and the holders of Series B Preferred Stock, together with the holders of any outstanding shares of Voting Preferred Stock, voting together as a single class, shall be entitled to vote for the election of the two additional directors (each, a “Preferred Stock Director”), provided that it shall be a qualification for election for any such Preferred Stock Director that the election of such director shall not cause the Corporation to violate the corporate governance requirements of the New York Stock Exchange (or any other exchange or automated quotation system on which the Corporation’s securities may then be listed or quoted) that requires listed or quoted companies to have a majority of independent directors; and provided further that the Board of Directors shall, at no time, include more than two Preferred Stock Directors.

(ii) In the event that the holders of the Series B Preferred Stock, and such other holders of Voting Preferred Stock, shall be entitled to vote for the election of the Preferred Stock Directors following a Nonpayment Event, such directors shall be initially elected following such Nonpayment Event only at a special meeting called at the request of the holders of record of at least 20% of the Series B Preferred Stock or of any other such series of Voting Preferred Stock then outstanding (provided that such request is received at least 90 calendar days before the date fixed for the next annual or special meeting of the stockholders of the Corporation, failing which election shall be held at such next annual or special meeting of stockholders), and at each subsequent annual meeting of stockholders during the continuance of such Nonpayment Event. Such request to call a special meeting for the initial election of the Preferred Stock Directors after a Nonpayment Event shall be made by written notice, signed by the requisite holders of Series B Preferred Stock or Voting Preferred Stock then outstanding, and delivered to the Secretary of the Corporation in such manner as provided for in Section 13 below, or as may otherwise be required by law.

(iii) If and when all accrued and unpaid dividends in respect of all prior completed Dividend Periods have been paid in full, or declared and a sum sufficient for such payment shall have been set aside, on the Series B Preferred Stock and any other series of Voting Preferred Stock for at least two consecutive Dividend Periods after a Nonpayment Event (a “Nonpayment Remedy”), the holders of the Series B Preferred Stock shall immediately and, without any further action by the Corporation, be divested of the foregoing voting rights, subject to the revesting of such rights in the event of each subsequent Nonpayment Event (and the number of Dividend Periods in which dividends have not been declared and paid shall be reset to zero). If such voting rights for the Series B Preferred Stock and all other holders of Voting Preferred Stock shall have terminated, the term of office of each Preferred Stock Director so elected shall forthwith terminate and the number of directors on the Board of Directors shall automatically be reduced accordingly. In determining whether dividends have been paid for two Dividend Periods following a Nonpayment Event, the Corporation may take account of any dividend that it elects to pay for such a Dividend Period after the regular Dividend Payment Date for that Dividend Period has passed.

 

- 12 -


(iv) Any Preferred Stock Director may be removed with cause in accordance with the Delaware General Corporation Law. Any Preferred Stock Director may also be removed at any time without cause by the holders of record of a majority of the outstanding shares of the Series B Preferred Stock and Voting Preferred Stock, when they have the voting rights described above (voting together as a single class). In the event that a Nonpayment Event shall have occurred and there has not been a Nonpayment Remedy, any vacancy in the office of a Preferred Stock Director (other than prior to the initial election of Preferred Stock Directors after a Nonpayment Event) may be filled by the written consent of the Preferred Stock Director remaining in office, or, if none remains in office, by a vote of the holders of record of a majority of the outstanding shares of the Series B Preferred Stock and Voting Preferred Stock (voting together as a single class), when they have the voting rights described above; provided that the filling of each vacancy will not cause the Corporation to violate the corporate governance requirements of the New York Stock Exchange (or any other exchange or automated quotation system on which the Corporation’s securities may be listed or quoted) that requires listed or quoted companies to have a majority of independent directors. Any such vote of stockholders to remove, or to fill a vacancy in the office of, a Preferred Stock Director may be taken only at a special meeting of such stockholders, called as provided above for an initial election of Preferred Stock Director after a Nonpayment Event (provided that such request is received at least 90 calendar days before the date fixed for the next annual or special meeting of the stockholders, failing which election shall be held at such next annual or special meeting of stockholders). The Preferred Stock Directors shall each be entitled to one vote per director on any matter that shall come before the Board of Directors for a vote. Each Preferred Stock Director elected at any special meeting of stockholders or by written consent of the other Preferred Stock Director shall hold office until the next annual meeting of the stockholders if such office shall not have previously terminated as above provided.

(v) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 9(b), if the Holders of the Series B Preferred Stock and the holders of any Voting Preferred Stock have the right to vote for the election of any Preferred Stock Director, and the addition of such Preferred Stock Director to the Board of Directors would cause the size of the Board of Directors to exceed the limitations set forth in the Certificate of Incorporation, then such Preferred Stock Director will not take office until and unless the addition of such Preferred Stock Director to the Board of Directors would not cause the size of the Board of Directors to exceed the limitations set forth in the Certificate of Incorporation.

If any Preferred Stock Director is unable to take office as result of the preceding paragraph, then the Dividend Rate will be increased to 6.75% per annum during the period from, and including, the date on which the related Nonpayment Event shall have first occurred and ending on, but excluding, the earlier of the date on which (x) such Preferred Stock Director takes office in accordance with the provisions of this Section 9(b); or (y) all accrued and unpaid dividends in respect of all prior completed Dividend Periods have been paid in full, or declared and a sum sufficient for such payment shall have been set aside, on the Series B Preferred Stock and any series of Voting Preferred Stock for at least two consecutive Dividend Periods after such Nonpayment Event, and on and after such earlier date, the Dividend Rate will be 4.75% per annum (subject to the application of this paragraph to any subsequent Nonpayment Event).

(c) Other Voting Rights. So long as any shares of Series B Preferred Stock are outstanding, in addition to any other vote or consent of stockholders required by law or by the Certificate of Incorporation, the vote or consent of the holders of at least two-thirds of the outstanding shares of Series B Preferred Stock and any Voting Preferred Stock then outstanding (subject to the last paragraph of this Section 9(c)) at the time outstanding and entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class, given in person or by proxy, either in writing without a meeting or by vote at any meeting called for the purpose, shall be necessary for effecting or validating:

(i) Authorization of Senior or Parity Stock. Any amendment or alteration of the Certificate of Incorporation or this Certificate of Designations to authorize or create, or increase the authorized amount of, any shares of any specific class or series of capital stock of the Corporation ranking senior to or equal with the Series B Preferred Stock with respect to either or both the payment of dividends or the distribution of assets on any liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation;

(ii) Amendment of Series B Preferred Stock. Any amendment, alteration or repeal of any provision of the Certificate of Incorporation or this Certificate of Designations so as to adversely affect the rights, preferences, privileges or voting powers of the Series B Preferred Stock; or

(iii) Share Exchanges, Reclassifications, Mergers and Consolidations. Any consummation of a binding share exchange or reclassification involving the Series B Preferred Stock, or of a merger or consolidation of the Corporation with another corporation or other entity, unless, in each case, (x) the shares of Series B Preferred Stock remain outstanding or, in the case of any such merger or consolidation with respect to which the Corporation is not the surviving or resulting entity, are converted into or exchanged for preference securities of the surviving or resulting entity or its parent, in each case, that is an entity organized and existing under the laws of the United States of America, any state thereof of the District of Columbia and (y) such shares of Series B Preferred Stock remaining outstanding or such preference securities, as the case may be, have such rights, preferences, privileges and voting powers, and limitations and restrictions thereof, as are not materially less favorable to the holders thereof than the rights, preferences, privileges and voting powers, and limitations and restrictions thereof, of the Series B Preferred Stock immediately prior to such consummation; or (B) such exchange, reclassification, merger or consolidation constitutes or would constitute a Fundamental Change as to which the Corporation is required to redeem all outstanding Series B Preferred Stock pursuant to Section 7(b);

 

- 14 -


provided, however, that for all purposes of this Section 9(c), (x) none of the following will be deemed to adversely affect the rights, preferences, privileges or voting powers of the Series B Preferred Stock: (1) any increase in the amount of the Corporation’s authorized but unissued shares of preferred stock; and (2) the creation and issuance, or an increase in the authorized or issued amount, of other series of preferred stock of the Corporation ranking junior to the Series B Preferred Stock with respect to the payment of dividends (whether such dividends are cumulative or non-cumulative) and the distribution of assets upon the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation; and (y) any binding share exchange, reclassification, merger or consolidation that satisfies the requirements of clause (A) or (B) of Section 9(c)(iii) will not require the consent of any Holders pursuant to Section 9(c)(i) or Section 9(c)(ii).

If any amendment, alteration, repeal, share exchange, reclassification, merger or consolidation specified in this Section 9(c) would materially and adversely affect one or more but not all series of Voting Preferred Stock (including the Series B Preferred Stock for the purpose of this paragraph), then only the series of Voting Preferred Stock materially and adversely affected and entitled to vote shall vote as a class in lieu of all other series of Voting Preferred Stock.

(d) Change for Clarification. Without the consent of the Holders of the Series B Preferred Stock, the Corporation may amend, alter, supplement or repeal any terms of the Series B Preferred Stock:

(i) to cure any ambiguity, or to cure, correct or supplement any provision contained in this Certificate of Designations that may be ambiguous, defective or inconsistent; or

(ii) to make any provision with respect to matters or questions relating to the Series B Preferred Stock that is not inconsistent with the provisions of this Certificate of Designations, so long as the same does not adversely affect the rights, preferences, privileges and voting powers, and limitations and restrictions thereof of the Series B Preferred Stock;

provided, however, that if any such amendment, alteration, supplement or repeal pursuant to clause (i) adversely affects the rights, preferences, privileges or voting powers of the Series B Preferred Stock, then, prior to, or concurrently with, effectuating the same, the Corporation will provide, to the Transfer Agent (with a copy to each Holder upon request), a certificate signed by one of its officers, together with a legal opinion (which may be issued by an employee of the Corporation) addressed to the Holders, each providing that such amendment, alteration, supplement or repeal is permitted by this Certificate of Designations.

(e) Procedures for Voting and Consents. The rules and procedures for calling and conducting any meeting of the holders of Series B Preferred Stock (including, without limitation, the fixing of a record date in connection therewith), the solicitation and use of proxies at such a meeting, the obtaining of written consents and any other aspect or matter with regard to such a meeting or such consents shall be governed by any rules the Board of Directors or a duly authorized committee of the Board of Directors, in its discretion, may adopt from time to time, which rules and procedures shall conform to the requirements of the Certificate of Incorporation, the Bylaws, applicable law and any national securities exchange or other trading facility, if any, on which the Series B Preferred Stock or the Common Stock is listed or traded at the time. Whether the vote or consent of the holders of a plurality, majority or other portion of the shares of Series B Preferred Stock and any Voting Preferred Stock has been cast or given on any matter on which the holders of shares of Series B Preferred Stock are entitled to vote shall be determined by the Corporation by reference to the specified liquidation preference amounts of the Series B Preferred Stock and such other Voting Preferred Stock voted or covered by the consent.

 

- 15 -


Section 10. Sufficiency of Legally Available Funds.

(a) Sufficiency of Legally Available Funds. If on any due date for a required payment on the Series B Preferred Stock hereunder, the Corporation shall not have funds legally available for distribution to Holders of Series B Preferred Stock sufficient to satisfy such payment obligation in full, then the Corporation shall not be relieved of its obligations in respect of such payment and shall make such payment immediately upon the availability of funds legally available therefor. During the pendency non-payment of any required amounts in respect of the Series B Preferred Stock in accordance with the foregoing (other than the non-payment of dividends the remedies for which are as set forth in Section 4), the Corporation shall be deemed to not have paid dividends on the Series B Preferred Stock for all prior completed Dividend Periods for purposes of Section 4(e) and shall be subject to the restrictions set forth therein.

The Corporation shall not execute and deliver any agreement whose performance would constitute a Fundamental Change unless, at the time of such execution and delivery, the Corporation in good faith believes the Corporation or its successor, as applicable, has or will have sufficient funds legally available to redeem the Series B Preferred Stock in accordance with this Section 7(b).

Section 11. Transfer Agent, Registrar and Paying Agent. The duly appointed Transfer Agent, Registrar and paying agent for the Series B Preferred Stock shall initially be Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Co. The Corporation may, in its sole discretion, remove the Transfer Agent, provided that the Corporation shall appoint a successor transfer agent who shall accept such appointment prior to the effectiveness of such removal.

Section 12. Stock Certificates.

(a) Shares of the Series B Preferred Stock shall initially be represented by either (i) stock certificates substantially in the form set forth as Exhibit A hereto, with such changes or revisions thereto as the Corporation may reasonably deem is appropriate; or (ii) book entries reflected at the facilities of the Transfer Agent representing such shares. Shares of Series B Preferred Stock may not be transferred into the book-entry system of the Depositary without the consent of the Corporation.

(b) Stock certificates representing shares of the Series B Preferred Stock shall be signed by two authorized officers of the Corporation in accordance with the Bylaws and applicable Delaware law, by manual or facsimile signature.

(c) A stock certificate representing shares of Series B Preferred Stock shall not be valid until manually countersigned by an authorized signatory of the Transfer Agent. Each stock certificate representing shares of Series B Preferred Stock shall be dated the date of its countersignature.

 

- 16 -


(d) If any officer of the Corporation who has signed a stock certificate no longer holds that office at the time the Transfer Agent countersigns the stock certificate, the stock certificate shall be valid nonetheless.

Section 13. Notices. All notices referred to in this Certificate of Designations shall be in writing, and, unless otherwise specified herein, all notices hereunder shall be deemed to have been given upon the earlier of receipt thereof or three Business Days after the mailing thereof if sent by registered or certified mail (unless first-class mail shall be specifically permitted for such notice under the terms of this Certificate of Designations) with postage prepaid, addressed: (i) if to the Corporation, to the principal executive office of the Corporation at its principal office in the United States of America, or to an agent of the Corporation designated in writing as permitted by this Certificate of Designations, or (ii) if to any Holder of shares of Series B Preferred Stock, to such Holder at the address of such Holder as listed in the stock record books of the Corporation (which may include the records of the Transfer Agent), or (iii) to such other address as the Corporation or any such Holder, as the case may be, shall have designated in writing by notice similarly given. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, notice to the Corporation or any Holder may be provided by electronic mail to the address theretofore specified by the recipient to the other party, and any such notice provided in such manner will be deemed, as of the time it is sent, to have been duly given in writing to the other party but only if such notice is also sent not later than the following Business Day via next day mail or a similar service to the address specified in the preceding sentence.

Any Redemption Notice provided to a Holder in accordance with this Section 13 will be conclusively presumed to have been duly given, whether or not the Holder receives such notice, but the failure to duly give such notice in accordance with this Section 13, or any defect in such notice, to any Holder of any share of Series B Preferred Stock will not affect the validity of the proceedings for the redemption of any other share of Series B Preferred Stock.
