(b)Dividends and Distributions. Subject to the prior rights of all classes or series of stock at the time outstanding having prior rights as to dividends or other distributions, the holders of shares of Common Stock shall be entitled to receive such dividends and other distributions in cash, property, or stock as may be declared on the Common Stock by the Board of Directors from time to time out of assets or funds of the Corporation legally available therefor and shall share equally on a per share basis in all such dividends and other distributions.

(c)Liquidation, etc. Subject to the prior rights of creditors of the Corporation and the holders of all classes or series of stock at the time outstanding having prior rights as to distributions upon liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation, in the event of any liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation, either voluntary or involuntary, the holders of shares of Common Stock shall be entitled to receive their ratable and proportionate share of the remaining assets of the Corporation.

2


series or class, (ii) the voting powers (if any), whether full or limited, of the shares of such series or class, (iii) the powers, preferences, and relative, participating, optional or other special rights of the shares of each such series or class, and (iv) the qualifications, limitations, and restrictions thereof, and to cause to be filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware a certificate of designation with respect thereto. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, to the fullest extent as may now or hereafter be permitted by the DGCL, the authority of the Board of Directors with respect to the Preferred Stock and any series or class thereof shall include, but not be limited to, determination of the following:

(a)the number of shares constituting any series or class, which number the Board of Directors may thereafter increase or decrease (but not below the number of shares thereof then outstanding) and the distinctive designation of that series or class;

(b)the dividend rate or rates on the shares of any series or class, the terms and conditions upon which and the periods in respect of which dividends shall be payable, whether dividends shall be cumulative and, if so, from which date or dates, and the relative rights of priority, if any, of payment of dividends on shares of that series or class;

The powers, preferences and relative, participating, optional and other special rights of the shares of each series or class of Preferred Stock, and the qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof, if any, may differ from those of any and all other series or classes at any time outstanding. Unless otherwise provided in the resolution or resolutions providing for the issuance of such series or class of Preferred Stock, shares of Preferred Stock, regardless of series or class, which shall be issued and thereafter acquired by the Corporation through purchase, redemption, exchange, conversion or otherwise shall return to the status of authorized but unissued Preferred Stock, without designation as to series or class of Preferred Stock, and the Corporation shall have the right to reissue such shares.

(2)Except as otherwise provided herein or by law, the holder of the Special Voting Share and the holders of shares of Common Stock shall vote together as one class on all matters submitted to a vote of shareholders of the Corporation.

DIRECTORS

Section 5.1.The business and affairs of the Corporation shall be managed by or under the direction of the Board of Directors, consisting of not less than one (1) nor more than fourteen (14) members with the exact number of directors to be set forth in the Corporation’s Bylaws or determined from time to time by resolution adopted by the Board of Directors. Prior to the election of directors at the Corporation’s 2024 annual meeting of stockholders, the directors, other than those who may be elected by the holders of any class or series of Preferred Stock as set forth in this Certificate of Incorporation, shall be divided into three classes, designated Class I, Class II and Class III. Each class shall consist, as nearly as may be possible, of one-third of the total number of directors constituting the entire Board of Directors. At the 2022 annual meeting of stockholders, successors to the directors whose terms expire at that annual meeting shall be elected to hold office for a one-year term expiring at the 2023 annual meeting of stockholders; at the 2023 annual meeting of stockholders, successors to the directors whose terms expire at that annual meeting shall be elected to hold office for a one-year term expiring at the 2024 annual meeting of the stockholders; and at the 2024 annual meeting of stockholders and at each annual meeting of stockholders thereafter, all directors shall be elected to hold office for a one-year term expiring at the next annual meeting of stockholders. A director shall hold office until such director’s term expires and until such director’s successor is elected and qualified for office, subject, however, to such director’s prior death, resignation, retirement, disqualification or removal from office.

Section 5.2.If, prior to the election of directors at the Corporation’s 2024 annual meeting of stockholders, the number of directors on the Board of Directors is changed, any increase or decrease shall be apportioned among the classes so as to maintain the number of directors in each class as nearly equal as possible. In no case will a decrease in the number of directors shorten the term of any incumbent director.

Section 5.3.Subject to the terms of any one or more series or classes of Preferred Stock, any vacancy on the Board of Directors, however resulting, may be filled only by an affirmative vote of the majority of the directors then in office, even if less than a quorum, or by an affirmative vote of the sole remaining director. Any director elected to fill a vacancy prior to the election of directors at the Corporation’s 2024 annual meeting of stockholders shall hold office for a term that shall coincide with the term of the class to which such director shall have been elected. Any director elected to fill a vacancy after the election of directors at the Corporation’s 2024 annual meeting of stockholders shall hold office for a term that shall expire at the next annual meeting of stockholders.

Section 5.4.Notwithstanding any of the foregoing provisions, 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, filling of vacancies and other features of such directorships shall be governed by the terms of this Certificate of Incorporation, or the resolution or resolutions adopted by the Board of Directors pursuant to Section 4.4 of this Certificate of Incorporation applicable thereto, and such directors so elected shall not be divided into classes pursuant to this Article V unless expressly provided by such terms.

CORPORATE OPPORTUNITIES

Section 6.1.In anticipation of the possibility (a) that the officers and/or directors of the Corporation may also serve as officers and/or directors of Cannae (as defined below) or THL (as defined below) and (b) that the Corporation on one hand, and Cannae or THL on the other hand, may engage in the same or similar activities or lines of business and have an interest in the same corporate opportunities, and in recognition of the benefits to be derived by the Corporation through its continued contractual, corporate and business relations with Cannae and THL, the provisions of this Article VI are set forth to regulate, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the conduct of certain affairs of the Corporation as they relate to Cannae and THL and their respective officers and directors, and the powers, rights, duties and liabilities of the Corporation and its officers, directors and stockholders in connection therewith.

 

(a)Except as may be otherwise provided in a written agreement between the Corporation on one hand, and Cannae or THL on the other hand, Cannae and THL shall have no duty to refrain from engaging in the same or similar activities or lines of business as the Corporation, and, to the fullest extent permitted by law, neither Cannae nor THL nor any officer or director thereof (except in the event of any violation of Section 6.3 hereof, to the extent such violation would create liability under applicable law) shall be liable to the Corporation or its stockholders for breach of any fiduciary duty by reason of any such activities of Cannae or THL.

(b)The Corporation may from time to time be or become a party to and perform, and may cause or permit any subsidiary of the Corporation to be or become a party to and perform, one or more agreements (or modifications or supplements to pre-existing agreements) with Cannae and/or THL. Subject to Section 6.3 hereof, to the fullest extent permitted by law, no such agreement, nor the performance thereof in accordance with its terms by the Corporation or any of its subsidiaries, Cannae or THL, shall be considered contrary to any fiduciary duty to the Corporation or to its stockholders of any director or officer of the Corporation who is also a director, officer or employee of Cannae or THL. Subject to Section 6.3 hereof, to the fullest extent permitted by law, no director or officer of the Corporation who is also a director, officer or employee of Cannae or THL shall have or be under any fiduciary duty to the Corporation or its stockholders to refrain from acting on behalf of the Corporation or any of its subsidiaries, Cannae or THL in respect of any such agreement or performing any such agreement in accordance with its terms.

Section 6.3.In the event that a director or officer of the Corporation who is also a director or officer of Cannae or THL acquires knowledge of a potential transaction or matter which may be a corporate opportunity of both the Corporation on one hand, and Cannae or THL on the other hand, such director or officer of the Corporation shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, have fully satisfied and fulfilled the fiduciary duty of such director or officer to the Corporation and its stockholders with respect to such corporate opportunity, if such director or officer acts in a manner consistent with the following policy:

(a)a corporate opportunity offered to any person who is an officer of the Corporation, and who is also a director but not an officer of Cannae or THL, shall belong to the Corporation, unless such opportunity is expressly offered to such person in a capacity other than such person’s capacity as an officer of the Corporation, in which case it shall not belong to the Corporation;

(b)a corporate opportunity offered to any person who is a director but not an officer of the Corporation, and who is also a director or officer of Cannae or THL, shall belong to the Corporation only if such opportunity is expressly offered to such person in such person’s capacity as a director of the Corporation; and

6


(c)a corporate opportunity offered to any person who is an officer of both the Corporation on one hand, and Cannae or THL on the other hand, shall belong to the Corporation only if such opportunity is expressly offered to such person in such person’s capacity as an officer of the Corporation.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Corporation shall not be prohibited from pursuing any corporate opportunity of which the Corporation becomes aware.

Section 6.4.Any person purchasing or otherwise acquiring any interest in shares of the capital stock of the Corporation shall be deemed to have notice of and to have consented to the provisions of this Article VI.

 

(a)For purposes of this Article VI, a director of any company who is the chair of the board of directors of that company shall not be deemed to be an officer of the company solely by reason of holding such position.

(b)The term “Corporation” shall mean, for purposes of this Article VI, the Corporation and all corporations, partnerships, joint ventures, associations and other entities in which the Corporation beneficially owns (directly or indirectly) fifty percent or more of the outstanding voting stock, voting power, partnership interests or similar voting interests. The term “Cannae” shall mean, for purposes of this Article VI, Cannae Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and any successor thereof, and all corporations, partnerships, joint ventures, associations and other entities in which it beneficially owns (directly or indirectly) fifty percent or more of the outstanding voting stock, voting power, partnership interests or similar voting interests other than the Corporation. The term “THL” shall mean, for purposes of this Article VI, Thomas H. Lee Partners, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership, and any successor thereof, and all corporations, partnerships, joint ventures, associations and other entities in which it or one or more of its affiliates beneficially owns (directly or indirectly) fifty percent or more of the outstanding voting stock, voting power, partnership interests or similar voting interests other than the Corporation and its subsidiaries.

Section 6.6.Anything in this Certificate of Incorporation to the contrary notwithstanding, the foregoing provisions of this Article VI shall not apply at any time that no person who is a director or officer of the Corporation is also a director or officer of Cannae or THL. Neither the alteration, amendment, termination, expiration or repeal of this Article VI nor the adoption of any provision of this Certificate of Incorporation inconsistent with this Article VI shall eliminate or reduce the effect of this Article VI in respect of any matter occurring, or any cause of action, suit or claim that, but for this Article VI, would accrue or arise, prior to such alteration, amendment, termination, expiration, repeal or adoption.

 

REMOVAL OF DIRECTORS

Subject to the rights, if any, of the holders of shares of Preferred Stock then outstanding, (a) any director who prior to the 2022 annual meeting of stockholders was elected to a three-year term (a “Classified Term”) that continues beyond the date of the 2022 annual meeting (a “Classified Director”) may be removed from office at any time, but only for cause and only by the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding capital stock of the Corporation then entitled to vote generally in the election of directors, considered for purposes of this Article VII as one class; and (b) any director that is not a Classified Director may be removed from office by the stockholders of the Corporation, with or without cause, by the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding capital stock of the Corporation then entitled to vote generally in the election of directors, considered for the purposes of this Article VII as one class. For purposes of this Article VII, “cause” shall mean, with respect to any director, (x) the willful failure by such director to perform, or the gross negligence of such director in performing, the duties of a director, (y) the engaging by such director in willful or serious misconduct that is

7


injurious to the Corporation or (z) the conviction of such director of, or the entering by such director of a plea of nolo contendere to, a crime that constitutes a felony.

 

ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

Elections of directors at an annual or special meeting of stockholders shall be by written ballot unless the bylaws of the Corporation (as in effect from time to time, the “Bylaws”) shall otherwise provide.

 

WRITTEN CONSENT OF STOCKHOLDERS

Except as otherwise provided for or fixed by or pursuant to the provisions of this Certificate of Incorporation or any resolution or resolutions of the Board of Directors providing for the issuance of Preferred Stock, any action required or permitted to be taken by the stockholders of the Corporation may be effected only at a duly called annual or special meeting of stockholders of the Corporation and may not be effected by any consent in writing by such stockholders; provided, however, that at any time when the THL and Cannae beneficially own (determined in accordance with Rule 13d-3 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended), in the aggregate, more than fifty percent (50%) in voting power of the stock of the Corporation entitled to vote generally in the election of directors, any action required or permitted to be taken by the stockholders of the Corporation at any meeting of stockholders may be taken without a meeting if a consent in writing, setting forth the action so taken, is signed by stockholders holding not less than the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to authorize or take such action at a meeting at which all shares entitled to vote thereon were present and voted.

 

SPECIAL MEETINGS

Special meetings of the stockholders of the Corporation for any purposes may be called at any time by a majority vote of the Board of Directors or the Chair of the Board or Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation. Except as required by law or provided by resolutions adopted by the Board of Directors designating the rights, powers and preferences of any Preferred Stock, special meetings of the stockholders of the Corporation may not be called by any other person or persons.

 

OFFICERS

The officers of the Corporation shall be chosen in such manner, shall hold their offices for such terms and shall carry out such duties as are determined solely by the Board of Directors, subject to the right of the Board of Directors to remove any officer or officers at any time with or without cause.

 

INDEMNITY

The Corporation shall indemnify to the full extent authorized or permitted by law any person made, or threatened to be made, a party to any action or proceeding (whether civil or criminal or otherwise) by reason of the fact that such person is or was a director or officer of the Corporation or by reason of the fact that such director or officer, at the request of the Corporation, is or was serving any other corporation, partnership, joint venture,

8


trust, employee benefit plan or other enterprise, in any capacity. Nothing contained herein shall affect any rights to indemnification to which employees other than directors and officers may be entitled by law. No director of the Corporation shall be personally liable to the Corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for any breach of fiduciary duty by such a director as a director. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, a director shall be liable to the extent provided by applicable law (a) for any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to the Corporation or its stockholders, (b) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (c) pursuant to Section 174 of the DGCL or (d) for any transaction from which such director derived an improper personal benefit. No amendment to or repeal of this Article XII shall apply to or have any effect on the liability or alleged liability of any director of the Corporation for or with respect to any acts or omissions of such director occurring prior to such amendment.

 

BUSINESS COMBINATIONS

The Corporation shall not be governed by Section 203 of the DGCL.

 

AMENDMENT

The Corporation reserves the right at any time from time to time to amend, alter, change or repeal any provision contained in this Certificate of Incorporation, and any other provisions authorized by the laws of the State of Delaware at any time may be added or inserted, in the manner now or hereafter prescribed by law.
