Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Disinterested Directors’ Committee shall not declare a Preference Dividend at any time when Consolidated EBITDA for the most recent four fiscal quarters for which financial statements of the Corporation are available is less than $425,000,000. Preference Dividends shall accumulate whether or not (i) the Corporation has earnings; (ii) there are funds legally available for the payment of those dividends; or (iii) those dividends are authorized or declared.

(b) Participating Dividends. In addition to any cash dividends which may be declared and paid to Holders pursuant to Section 4(a), the Holders shall, as Holders of Series A, be entitled to such dividends paid and other Distributions made to the holders of Common Stock to the same extent as if such Holders had converted the Series A into Common Stock (without regard to any limitations on conversion herein or elsewhere) and had held such shares of Common Stock on the record date for such dividends and Distributions. Payments under the preceding sentence shall be made concurrently with the dividend or Distribution to the holders of Common Stock.

(c) Priority of Dividends. So long as any share of Series A remains outstanding, no dividend whatsoever shall be paid or declared and no Distribution shall be made on any class of Common Stock or any future class of Preferred Stock established hereafter by the Board of Directors (other than Dividend Parity Stock or Dividend Senior Stock) (collectively, referred to as the “Dividend Junior Stock”), other than a dividend payable solely in Dividend Junior Stock, and no shares of Dividend Junior Stock shall be purchased, redeemed or otherwise acquired for consideration by the Corporation, directly or indirectly (other than as a result of a reclassification of junior stock for or into junior stock, or the exchange or conversion of one share of Dividend Junior Stock for or into another share of Dividend Junior Stock, and other than through the use of the proceeds of a substantially contemporaneous sale of other shares of Dividend Junior Stock), unless (i) all cumulative accrued and unpaid Preference Dividends on all outstanding shares of Series A have been paid in full and the full dividend thereon for the then current Preference Dividend Period has been paid or declared and set aside for payment and (ii) all prior redemption requirements with respect to Series A have been complied with. When Preference Dividends are not paid in full upon the shares of Series A and any future class of Preferred Stock established hereafter by the Board of Directors with the vote or written consent of a Majority In Interest, the terms of which expressly provide that such class ranks pari passu with the Series A as to rights to payment of dividends (collectively, referred to as the “Dividend Parity Stock”), all Preference Dividends declared upon shares of Series A and all dividends declared upon Dividend Parity Stock shall be declared pro rata so that the respective amounts of such dividends shall bear the same ratio to each other as all accrued but unpaid Preference Dividends per share on the shares of Series A and all accrued but unpaid dividends per share on all such Dividend Parity Stock bear to each other. Subject to the foregoing and subject to Section 4(b), the Corporation may pay such dividends (payable in cash, stock or otherwise) as may be declared by the Board of Directors on any Dividend Junior Stock from time to time out of any funds legally available therefor.

Section 5. Ranking.

For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 5 shall not prohibit the Corporation from making any redemption payments on the Series B in accordance with the Series B Certificate of Designations.

Section 6. Liquidation Event Rights.

(a) Payment of Aggregate Liquidation Entitlement. In the event of the occurrence of any Liquidation Event, before any Distribution or payment out of the assets of the Corporation may be made to or set aside for the holders of any Liquidation Junior Stock, the Holders of Series A will be entitled to receive out of the assets of the Corporation legally available for distribution to its stockholders an amount equal to the Aggregate Liquidation Entitlement. If, after payment of any liquidation preferences otherwise payable to holders of any Liquidation Senior Stock in respect of any Distribution upon the occurrence of a Liquidation Event, and subject to applicable Law, the assets of the Corporation are not sufficient to pay all Holders of Series A the Aggregate Liquidation Entitlement in full and to pay all holders of any Liquidation Parity Stock the amounts otherwise payable to such holders in respect of any Distributions upon the occurrence of a Liquidation Event (a “Liquidation Parity Stock Liquidation Preference”), then the amounts paid to the Holders of Series A and to the holders of all Liquidation Parity Stock shall be pro rata in accordance with the respective Aggregate Liquidation Entitlement and the Liquidation Parity Stock Liquidation Preferences of such Liquidation Parity Stock.

(b) Residual Distributions. If the Liquidation Entitlement has been paid in full to all Holders of Series A, all Liquidation Parity Stock Liquidation Preferences, if any, have been paid in full to all holders of any Liquidation Parity Stock, and all other applicable liquidation preferences have been paid to holders of Liquidation Junior Stock which is senior to the Common Stock with respect to rights upon the occurrence of a Liquidation Event, then holders of Common Stock shall be entitled to receive any and all assets remaining legally available for distribution to the Corporation’s stockholders.

(c) Merger, Consolidation and Sale of Assets Not Liquidation. For purposes of this Certificate of Designations, the merger, consolidation or other business combination of the Corporation with or into any other corporation, including a transaction in which the Holders of Series A receive cash or property for their shares, or the sale, conveyance, lease, exchange or transfer (for cash, shares of stock, securities or other consideration) of all or substantially all of the assets of the Corporation, shall not constitute a Liquidation Event.

Section 7. Conversion.

(a) Conversion at the Option of the Holders. Each share of Series A shall be convertible, at the option of the Holder thereof (a “Holder Conversion”), effective on January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1 in each year (or, if any such date is not a Business Day, on the next succeeding Business Day, without any adjustment in the Additional Payment Amount), or on the third Business Day prior to a Redemption Date (provided, that the Corporation shall have received the Notice of Holder Conversion prior to the Close of Business on the Business Day prior to such Redemption Date) (any such date, the “Holder Conversion Date”) into fully-paid, non-assessable shares of Common Stock at the Conversion Rate then in effect. In order to effectuate the Holder Conversion, the Holder must provide the Corporation a written notice of conversion in the form of Annex A hereto (the “Notice of Holder Conversion”). The Notice of Holder Conversion must be received by the Corporation (or, in the discretion of the Corporation, the transfer agent) no later than (A) with respect to any Holder Conversion Date scheduled to fall on January 1, April 1, July 1 or October 1 of any year, ten (10) Business Days prior to the applicable Holder Conversion Date or (B) with respect to any Holder Conversion Date falling on the third Business Day prior to a Redemption Date, prior to the Close of Business on the Business Day prior to such Redemption Date.

(b) Mechanics of Holder Conversion. A Holder of Series A that has validly effected a Notice of Holder Conversion shall be deemed to be the holder of record of the Common Stock issuable upon such conversion as of the applicable Holder Conversion Date, notwithstanding that certificates (if any) representing such shares of Series A shall not have been surrendered at the office of the Corporation, that notice from the Corporation shall not have been received by any Holder of record of shares of Series A, or that the certificates evidencing such shares of Common Stock shall not then be actually delivered to such Holder. In order to effect a Holder Conversion, a Holder shall deliver an original copy of the fully executed Notice of Holder Conversion to the transfer agent: Equiniti Trust Company, PO Box 64858 St Paul, MN 55164-0858, or such other address as the Corporation may specify for such purposes. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if beneficial interests in shares of Series A are held through DTC or any other similar facility, a copy of the Notice of Holder Conversion may be given by the applicable Holders of Series A at such time and in any manner permitted by such facility. Dividends payable on shares of Series A surrendered for conversion during the period from the Close of Business on any record date for the payment of a dividend on such shares to the opening of business on the date of payment of such dividend shall be payable to the holder of record of such shares as of such record date notwithstanding such conversion. Except as otherwise expressly set forth herein, no payment or adjustment shall be made upon any conversion of shares of Series A on account of any dividends accumulated on such shares or on account of any dividends accumulated on the shares of Common Stock issued upon such conversion.

(c) Automatic Conversion. Each share of Series A shall, on the third Trading Day following the date on which the Corporation delivers an Automatic Conversion Event Notice (the “Automatic Conversion Date”) automatically be converted into fully-paid, non-assessable shares of Common Stock at the Conversion Rate then in effect on the Automatic Conversion Date, without any further action by the Holders of such shares and whether or not certificates representing such shares are surrendered to the Corporation or its transfer agent.

(d) Mechanics of Automatic Conversion. Within ten (10) Business Days following the occurrence of an Automatic Conversion Event, the Corporation shall deliver a notice to the Holders of outstanding Series A stating that an Automatic Conversion Event has occurred and stating the Conversion Rate in effect as of the Automatic Conversion Date (the “Automatic Conversion Event Notice”). On the Automatic Conversion Date, each Holder of Series A shall be deemed to be the holder of record of the Common Stock issuable upon such conversion, notwithstanding that the certificates (if any) representing such shares of Series A shall not have been surrendered at the office of the Corporation, that notice from the Corporation shall not have been received by any Holder of record of shares of Series A, or that the certificates evidencing such shares of Common Stock shall not then be actually delivered to such Holder. Dividends payable on shares of Series A surrendered for conversion during the period from the Close of Business on any record date for the payment of a dividend on such shares to the opening of business on the date of payment of such dividend shall be payable to the holder of record of such shares as of such record date notwithstanding such conversion. Except as otherwise expressly set forth herein, no payment or adjustment shall be made upon any conversion of shares of Series A on account of any dividends accrued on such shares or on account of any dividends accrued on the shares of Common Stock issued upon such conversion.

(e) Reservation of Shares, Etc. The Corporation shall at all times reserve and keep available, free from preemptive rights, out of its authorized but unissued Common Stock, solely for the purpose of effecting the conversion of shares of Series A, the full number of shares of Common Stock that would then be deliverable upon the conversion of all shares of Series A then outstanding. If any shares of Common Stock required to be reserved for purposes of conversion of the Series A hereunder require registration with or approval of any governmental authority under any Federal or State law before such shares may be issued or freely transferred upon conversion, the Corporation will in good faith and as expeditiously as possible endeavor to cause such shares to be duly registered or approved as the case may be. If the Common Stock is quoted on the Nasdaq Global Select Market, New York Stock Exchange, or any other U.S. national securities exchange, the Corporation will, if permitted by the rules of such exchange, list and keep listed on such exchange, upon official notice of issuance, all shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series A. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the reference to listing in the third sentence of this paragraph shall apply only when the Series A shall have become freely transferable under the federal securities laws.

(f) No Fractional Shares. No fractional shares of Common Stock shall be issued upon conversion of Series A. If a number of shares of Series A (evidenced by one or more certificates) shall be surrendered for conversion at one time by the same holder, the number of full shares issuable upon conversion thereof shall be computed on the basis of the aggregate number of shares of Series A being converted at such time by such holder. Instead of any fractional share of Common Stock that would otherwise be issuable to a holder upon conversion of any shares of Series A, the Corporation shall pay a cash adjustment in respect of such fractional share of Common Stock assuming each share of Common Stock has a value equal to the Additional Shares Fair Market Value.

 

-12-


(g) Adjustment of Conversion Price. In the event that outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be subdivided or split into a greater number of shares of Common Stock, the Conversion Price in effect at the opening of business on the day following the day upon which such subdivision becomes effective shall be proportionately reduced, and conversely, in case outstanding shares of Common Stock shall each be combined into a smaller number of shares of Common Stock, the Conversion Price in effect at the opening of business on the day following the day upon which such combination becomes effective shall be proportionately increased, such reduction or increase, as the case may be, to become effective immediately after the opening of business on the day following the day upon which such subdivision or combination becomes effective. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Corporation shall not make any adjustment to the Conversion Price if Holders of the Series A have the opportunity to participate, at the same time and upon the same terms as holders of Common Stock and solely as a result of holding Series A, in any transaction described in this Section 7(g), without having to convert their shares of Series A, as if they held a number of shares of Common Stock issuable to such Holder at the Conversion Price.

(h) Calculation of Adjustments. All adjustments to the Conversion Price shall be calculated by the Corporation to the nearest 1/100th of a cent and all conversions based thereon shall be calculated by the Corporation to the nearest 1/10,000th of one share of Common Stock (or if there is not a nearest 1/10,000th of a share, to the next lower 1/10,000th of a share). No adjustment to the Conversion Price will be required unless such adjustment would require an increase or decrease to the Conversion Price of at least $0.0100; provided, however, that any such adjustment that is not required to be made will be carried forward and taken into account in any subsequent adjustment; provided, further that any such adjustment of less than $0.0100 that has not been made will be made upon any Holder Conversion Date or Automatic Conversion Date or redemption or repurchase date.

(i) Successive Adjustments. After an adjustment to the Conversion Price under this Section 7, any subsequent event requiring an adjustment under this Section 7 shall cause an adjustment to each such Conversion Price as so adjusted.

(j) Reorganization Events. In the event of:

(i) any reclassification, statutory exchange, merger, consolidation or other similar business combination of the Corporation with or into another Person, in each case, pursuant to which at least a majority of the Common Stock is changed or converted into, or exchanged for, cash, securities or other property of the Corporation or another Person;

(ii) any sale, transfer, lease or conveyance to another Person of all or a majority of the property and assets of the Corporation, in each case pursuant to which the Common Stock is converted into cash, securities or other property; or

(iii) any statutory exchange of securities of the Corporation with another Person (other than in connection with a merger or acquisition) or reclassification, recapitalization or reorganization of the Common Stock into other securities;

 

-13-


other than, in each case, any such transaction that constitutes a Change of Control, with respect to which, for the avoidance of doubt, the provisions of Section 9 shall apply (each of which is referred to as a “Reorganization Event”), each share of Series A outstanding immediately prior to such Reorganization Event will, without the consent of the Holders and subject to Section 7(l) and Section 8(c), remain outstanding but shall become convertible into, out of funds legally available therefor, the number, kind and amount of securities, cash and other property (the “Exchange Property”) (without any interest on such Exchange Property and without any right to dividends or distribution on such Exchange Property which have a record date that is prior to the applicable Holder Conversion Date or Automatic Conversion Date) that the Holder of such share of Series A would have received in such Reorganization Event had such Holder converted its shares of Series A into the applicable number of shares of Common Stock immediately prior to the effective date of the Reorganization Event using the Conversion Price applicable immediately prior to the effective date of the Reorganization Event, assuming that the Corporation elected to issue Additional Shares in connection with such conversion and including such shares for the foregoing purposes; provided that the foregoing shall not apply if such Holder is a Person with which the Corporation consolidated or into which the Corporation merged or which merged into the Corporation or to which such sale or transfer was made, as the case may be (any such Person, a “Constituent Person”), to the extent such Reorganization Event provides for different treatment of Common Stock held by such Constituent Persons. If the kind or amount of securities, cash and other property receivable upon such Reorganization Event is not the same for each share of Common Stock held immediately prior to such Reorganization Event by a Person (other than a Constituent Person), then for the purpose of this Section 7(j), the kind and amount of securities, cash and other property receivable upon conversion following such Reorganization Event will be deemed to be the weighted average of the types and amounts of consideration received by the holders of Common Stock.

(k) Successive Reorganization Events. The above provisions of Section 7(j) shall similarly apply to successive Reorganization Events and the provisions of Section 7(g) shall apply to any shares of capital stock of the Corporation received by the holders of the Common Stock in any such Reorganization Event.

(l) Reorganization Event Agreements. The Corporation shall not enter into any agreement for a transaction constituting a Reorganization Event unless (i) such agreement provides for or does not interfere with or prevent (as applicable) conversion of the Series A into the Exchange Property in a manner that is consistent with and gives effect to Section 7(j), and (ii) to the extent that the Corporation is not the surviving corporation in such Reorganization Event or will be dissolved in connection with such Reorganization Event, proper provision shall be made in the agreements governing such Reorganization Event for the conversion of the Series A into stock of the Person surviving such Reorganization Event or such other continuing entity in such Reorganization Event.

(m) Notice of Adjustments. Whenever the Conversion Price is adjusted as herein provided, the Corporation shall prepare, and shall keep at the Corporation’s principal offices, and shall make available to any Holder upon request, a statement showing in reasonable detail the facts requiring such adjustment and the Conversion Rate that shall be in effect after such adjustment, and the Corporation shall also cause a notice stating that the Conversion Price has been adjusted and setting forth the adjusted Conversion Price shall forthwith be required, and as soon as practicable after it is required such notice shall be mailed by the Corporation to all Holders of Series A, at their last addresses as they shall appear upon the stock transfer books of the Corporation.

 

-14-


(n) Additional Payment Amount; Additional Conversion Shares. Upon conversion of any share of Series A, the Holder thereof shall receive a payment in cash in an amount equal to the amount of cumulative unpaid Preference Dividends (whether or not authorized or declared) as of the Holder Conversion Date or Automatic Conversion Date, as applicable (the “Additional Payment Amount”); provided, that the Corporation may elect, in its sole discretion, in lieu of the payment of the Additional Payment Amount, to issue to such Holder an additional number of fully-paid, non-assessable shares of Common Stock equal to the Additional Payment Amount divided by the lesser of (i) the Additional Shares Fair Market Value and (ii) the fair market value of the Common Stock at the time of such conversion as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors (the “Additional Shares”). The payment of the Additional Payment Amount, or the issuance of the Additional Shares, as applicable, shall be made on or before the tenth (10th) Business Day following the Automatic Conversion Date or the date on which the Notice of Holder Conversion is actually received by the Corporation, as applicable.

Section 8. Voting Rights.

(a) General. The Holders of Series A will have no voting rights except as set forth below or in the Certificate of Incorporation or as otherwise required by law.

(b) Right to Vote with Holders of Common Stock. Subject to the other provisions of, and without limiting the other voting rights provided in, this Section 8, and except as provided in the Certificate of Incorporation or required by the Delaware General Corporation Law, the Holders will have the right to vote together as a single class with the holders of the Common Stock on each matter submitted for a vote or consent by the holders of the Common Stock, and, solely for these purposes, (i) the Series A of each Holder will entitle such Holder to cast a number of votes on such matter equal to the number of votes such Holder would have been entitled to cast if such Holder were the holder of record, as of the record date or, if there is no record date, other relevant date for such matter, of a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the whole number of shares of Common Stock that would be issuable upon conversion of such Series A assuming such Series A were converted in connection with an Automatic Conversion Event occurring on such record date or, if there is no record date, other relevant date; in each case assuming that the Corporation elected to issue Additional Shares in connection with such conversion and including such shares for the foregoing purposes (provided, that for the purposes of this Section 8(b), the number of Additional Shares shall not be greater than an amount equal to the Additional Payment Amount divided by $1.00) and (ii) the Holders will be entitled to notice of all stockholder meetings or proposed actions by written consent in accordance with the Certificate of Incorporation, the Bylaws, and the Delaware General Corporation Law as if the Holders were holders of Common Stock. For the avoidance of doubt, no Holder of Series A will be treated as the holder of the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of such Series A except as set out in Section 7.

(c) Other Voting Rights. So long as any shares of Series A are outstanding, in addition to any other vote or consent of stockholders required by law or by the Certificate of Incorporation, the approval of a Majority In Interest, voting as a class, given in person or by proxy, either in writing without a meeting or by vote at any meeting called for the purpose, will be necessary for:

(i) effecting or validating any amendment, modification or alteration of the Certificate of Incorporation (whether by merger, consolidation or otherwise) to authorize or create, or increase the authorized amount of, any shares of any class or series or any securities convertible into shares of any class or series of capital stock of the Corporation ranking senior to or pari passu with Series A with respect to the payment of the Preference Dividend or payment of the Liquidation Entitlement upon the occurrence of a Liquidation Event;

 

-15-


(ii) any increase in the authorized number of shares of Series A, Dividend Party Stock or Liquidation Parity Stock or issuance of shares of Series A, Dividend Parity Stock or Liquidating Parity Stock after the date hereof;

(iii) effecting or validating any amendment, alteration or repeal (whether by merger, consolidation or otherwise) of any provision of the Certificate of Incorporation (including this Certificate of Designations and any other certificate of designations of the Corporation) or Bylaws that would have an adverse effect on the rights, preferences, privileges or voting power of the Series A or the Holders thereof in any material respect; provided, that for the avoidance of doubt, any merger, consolidation, or similar transaction shall not be deemed to have such an adverse effect so long as (A) the Series A remains outstanding with the terms thereof materially unchanged or the holders of the Series A receive equity securities with rights, preferences, privileges and voting power substantially the same as those of the Series A, and (B) the provisions of the certificate of incorporation or bylaws (or equivalent governing documents) of the surviving entity or successor entity in such transaction do not differ from the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws in any manner that would have an adverse effect on the rights, preferences, privileges or voting power of the Series A or such replacement equity securities or the Holders thereof in any material respect; provided, further, to the extent that the Corporation duly consummated its Redemption rights in connection with a Change of Control pursuant to Section 9 prior to the occurrence of such Change of Control, the Holders shall not have voting rights hereunder in respect of any amendment, alteration or repeal relating to such transaction; or

(iv) any action or inaction that would reduce the Stated Amount of any share of Series A (including, but not limited to, any reverse stock split, combination, or other adjustment).

Section 9. Redemption at the Option of the Corporation.

(a) Generally. The Series A will not be redeemable by the Corporation except that, subject to the other terms of this Section 9, the Corporation may, at its election, redeem all but not less than all of the outstanding shares of Series A (i) at any time following April 30, 2027 or (ii) in connection with the consummation of a Change of Control, in either case on the applicable Redemption Date (the “Redemption”) for a cash purchase price equal to the Stated Amount plus cumulative unpaid Preference Dividends (whether or not authorized or declared) as of the Redemption Date (the “Redemption Price”).

(b) Redemption Prohibited in Certain Circumstances. The Corporation will not call for Redemption, or otherwise send a Redemption Notice in respect of the Redemption of, any Series A pursuant to this Section 9 unless the Corporation has sufficient funds legally available to fully pay the Redemption Price in respect of all shares of Series A called for Redemption.

(c) Redemption Date. The “Redemption Date” for any Change of Control will be a Business Day of the Corporation’s choosing on or after the date that such Change of Control is consummated that is no more than sixty (60), nor less than ten (10), calendar days after the date the Corporation sends the related Redemption Notice pursuant to Section 9(d).

(d) Redemption Notice. Upon the election by the Corporation to call the Series A for Redemption pursuant to Section 9(a), the Corporation will send to each Holder a notice of such Redemption (a “Redemption Notice”). Such Redemption Notice must state:

 

-16-


(i) that the Series A has been called for Redemption;

(ii) briefly, if applicable, the events causing the Change of Control giving rise to the Corporation’s right to elect to redeem and the expected consummation date for the Change of Control;

(iii) the Redemption Price per share of Series A;

(iv) that any Series A called for Redemption may be converted pursuant to Section 7 on or before the third Business Day prior to the Redemption Date (provided, that the Corporation shall have received the Notice of Holder Conversion prior to the Close of Business on the Business Day prior to the Redemption Date); and

(v) the Conversion Rate in effect on the date such Redemption Notice was sent.

(e) Payment of the Redemption Price. The Corporation will cause the Redemption Price for each share of Series A called for Redemption to be paid to the Holder thereof on the applicable Redemption Date.

Section 10. Incurrence of Certain Indebtedness. The Corporation shall not, and shall cause its Subsidiaries that are “restricted subsidiaries” (or such similarly classified Subsidiaries under the Credit Agreement) not to, create, incur, assume or permit to exist any Indebtedness except:

(i) for Indebtedness that is not prohibited from being created, incurred, assumed or permitted to exist pursuant to the terms of the Credit Agreement;

(ii) for Indebtedness created, incurred, assumed or permitted to exist with the approval of a Majority In Interest; or

(iii) to the extent that the Consolidated Leverage Ratio, calculated on a pro forma basis in accordance with the terms of the Credit Agreement, would not exceed 3.00:1.00.

Section 11. Expenses. In any action at law or suit in equity to enforce this Certificate of Designations or the rights of any Holder hereunder, the prevailing party in such action or suit (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction) shall be entitled to recover its reasonable out-of-pocket attorneys’ fees and all other reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred in such action or suit.

Section 12. Record Holders. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the Corporation and the transfer agent for the Series A may deem and treat the record holder of any share of Series A as the true and lawful owner thereof for all purposes, and neither the Corporation nor such transfer agent shall be affected by any notice to the contrary.

Section 13. Notices. All notices or communications in respect of the Series A will be sufficiently given if given in writing and delivered in person or by first class mail, postage prepaid, or if given in such other manner as may be permitted in this Certificate of Designations, in the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws or by applicable law.

 

-17-


Section 14. No Other Rights or Privileges. The shares of Series A will not have any voting powers, preferences or relative, participating, optional or other special rights, or qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof, other than as set forth herein or in the Certificate of Incorporation.

Section 15. Certificates. The Corporation may at its option issue shares of Series A without certificates.

Section 16. Technical, Corrective, Administrative or Similar Changes. The Corporation may, by any means authorized by law and without any vote of the Holders of shares of Series A, make technical, corrective, administrative or similar changes in this Certificate of Designations that do not, individually or in the aggregate, adversely affect the rights or preferences of the Holders of shares of Series A in any way.

Section 17. Tax Matters. The Corporation intends that the Series A not be treated as either (i) “preferred stock” for purposes of Section 305 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”) or (ii) receiving any constructive or deemed distribution pursuant to Section 305(c) of the Code.

Section 18. Interpretation. Whenever possible, each provision of this Certificate of Designations shall be interpreted in a manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law and public policy. If any provision set forth herein is held to be invalid, unlawful or incapable of being enforced by reason of any rule of law or public policy, such provision shall be ineffective only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, without invalidating or otherwise adversely affecting the remaining provisions of this Certificate of Designations, and a suitable and equitable provision shall be substituted therefor in order to carry out, so far as may be valid and enforceable, the intent and purpose of such invalid or unenforceable provision. No provision herein set forth shall be deemed dependent upon any other provision unless so expressed herein. If a court of competent jurisdiction should determine that a provision of this Certificate of Designations would be valid or enforceable if a period of time were extended or shortened, then such court may make such change as shall be necessary to render the provision in question effective and valid under applicable law. References herein to any payment shall mean a payment in cash in United States Dollars by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated by the applicable payee.

Section 19. Enforcement. To the fullest extent permitted by law, the provisions of this Certificate of Designations shall remain in full force and effect irrespective of (i) the failure of any Person to assert any claim or demand or to enforce any right or remedy under this Certificate of Designations or otherwise or (ii) any change in the corporate existence, structure or ownership of the Corporation or any of its Affiliates, or any insolvency, bankruptcy, reorganization or other similar proceeding affecting the Corporation or any of its Affiliates.
