provided, however, that in the event that less than 70 days notice or prior public disclosure of the date of the meeting is given or made to stockholders, notice by the stockholder to be timely must be so received not later than the close of business on the 10th day following the day on which such notice of the date of the meeting was mailed or such public disclosure was made. Such stockholders notice shall set forth (l) as to each person whom the stockholder proposes to nominate for election or re-election as a director, (a) the name, age, business address and residence address of such person, (b) the principal occupation or employment of such person, (c) the class and number of shares of the corporation which are beneficially owned by such person, (d) any other information relating to such person that is required to be disclosed in solicitations of proxies for election of directors, or is otherwise required, in each case pursuant to Regulation 14A under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (including without limitation such persons written consent to being named in the proxy
statement as a nominee and to serving as a director if elected); and (e) the signed agreement by such nominee required by by-law 12(C)(3); and (2) as to the stockholder giving the notice, (a) the name and address, as they appear on the corporations books, of such stockholder and the name and address of any beneficial owner on whose behalf such nomination is made and (b) the class and number of shares of the corporation which are owned beneficially and of record by such stockholder and any such beneficial owner. At the request of the board of directors, any person nominated by the board of directors for election as a director shall furnish to the secretary of the corporation that information required to be set forth in a stockholders notice of nomination which pertains to the nominee. The board of directors may require any nominee proposed for election as a director, whether nominated by a stockholder or the board of directors, to furnish to the secretary of the corporation such other information as may reasonably be required by the corporation to determine the eligibility of such proposed nominee to serve as an independent director of the corporation or that could be material to a reasonable stockholders understanding of the independence, or lack thereof, of such nominee. No person shall be eligible for election as a director of the corporation unless he or she is nominated in accordance with the procedures set forth in this by-law 7(B) and complies with all of the provisions set forth herein.
(C) The chairman of the meeting shall have the power and the duty to determine whether a nomination or any business proposed to be brought before the meeting has been made in accordance with the procedures set forth in these by-laws, and, if any proposed nomination or business is not in compliance with these by-laws, to declare that such defectively proposed business or nomination shall not be presented for stockholder action at the meeting and shall be disregarded. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this by-law 7, a stockholder shall also comply with all applicable requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act) and the rules and regulations thereunder with respect to the matters set forth in this by-law 7. Nothing in this by-law 7 shall be deemed to affect any right of stockholders to request inclusion of proposals in the corporations proxy statement pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act.
(D) (l) Whenever any action is required or permitted to be taken at any meeting of stockholders of the corporation, unless the certificate of incorporation otherwise provides, and subject to the provisions of clauses (2) and (3) of this by-law 7(D), the action may be taken without a meeting, without prior notice and without a vote, if a written consent or written consents setting forth the action so taken shall have been signed by the holders of outstanding stock having not less than the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to authorize such action at a meeting at which all shares entitled to vote thereon were present and voted and if such consent or consents have been delivered to the corporation in accordance with Section 228 (or its successor provision) (Section 228) of the DGCL;
