DIRECTORS’ AND OFFICERS’ LIABILITY
A director or officer of the corporation shall not be personally liable to this corporation or its stockholders for damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director or officer, but this Article shall not eliminate or limit the liability of a director or officer for (i) acts or omissions which involve intentional misconduct, fraud or a knowing violation of law, or (ii) the unlawful payment of dividends. Any repeal or modification of this Article by the stockholders of the corporation shall be prospective only, and shall not adversely affect any limitation on the personal liability of a director or officer of the corporation for acts and omissions prior to such repeal or modification.
Every person who was or is a party to, or is threatened to be made a party to, or is involved in any action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, by reason of the fact that he, or a person of whom he is the legal representative, is or was a director or officer of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director or officer of another corporation, or as its representative in a partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, shall be indemnified and held harmless to the fullest extent legally permissible under the laws of the State of Nevada from time to time against all expenses, liability and loss (including attorneys’ fees, judgments, fines and amounts paid or to be paid in settlement) reasonably incurred or suffered by him in connections therewith. Such right of indemnification shall be a contract right which may be enforced in any manner desired by such person. The expenses of officers and directors incurred in defending a civil or criminal action, suit or proceeding must be paid by the corporation as they are incurred and in advance of the final disposition of the action, suit or proceeding, upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of the director or officer to repay the amount if it is ultimately determined by a court of competent jurisdiction that he is not entitled to be indemnified by the corporation. Such right of indemnification shall not be exclusive of any other right which such directors, officers or representatives may have or hereafter acquire, and, without limiting the generality of such statement, they shall be entitled to their respective rights of
indemnification under any bylaw, agreement, vote of stockholders, provision of law, or otherwise, as well as their rights under this Article. Without limiting the application of the foregoing, the Board of Directors may adopt bylaws from time to time with respect to indemnification, to provide at all times the fullest indemnification permitted by the laws of the State of Nevada, and may cause the corporation to purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was a director or officer of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director or officer of another corporation, or as its representative in a partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprises, against any liability asserted against such person and incurred in any such capacity or arising out of such status, whether or not the corporation would have the power to indemnify such person. The indemnification provided in this Article shall continue as to a person who has ceased to be a director, officer, employee or agent, and shall inure to the benefit of the heirs, executors and administrators of such person.
Subject at all times to the express provisions of Section 4.03, hereof, which cannot be amended, the corporation reserves the right to amend, alter, change, or repeal any provision contained in these Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation or its bylaws, in the manner now or hereafter prescribed by statute or by these Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation or said bylaws, and all rights conferred upon the stockholders are granted subject to this reservation.
POWERS OF DIRECTORS
In furtherance, and not in limitation of the powers conferred by statue, the Board of Directors is expressly authorized:
(1) Subject to the bylaws, if any, adopted by the stockholders, to make, alter or repeal the bylaws of the corporation;
(2) To authorize and cause to be executed mortgages and liens, with or without limit as to amount, upon the real and personal property of the corporation;
(3) To authorize the guaranty by the corporation of securities, evidences of indebtedness and obligations of other persons, corporations and business entities;
(4) To set apart out of any of the funds of the corporation available for dividends a reserve or reserves for any proper purpose and to abolish any such reserve; and
(5) By resolution adopted by a majority of the whole Board of Directors, to designate one or more committees, each committee to consist of one or more of the directors of the corporation, which, to the extent provided in the resolution or in the bylaws, of the Board of Directors in the management of the business and affairs of the corporation, any may authorize the seal of the corporation to be affixed to all papers which may require it. Such committee or committees shall have such name or names as may be stated in the bylaws of the corporation or as may be determined from time to time by resolution adopted by the Board of Directors.
All corporate powers of the corporation shall be exercised by the Board of Directors except as otherwise provided herein, in accordance with the bylaws, or by law.
