in connection with any nomination notice delivered by a stockholder, both the nominating stockholder and nominee to provide to the Board certain information in questionnaires, representations and agreements and other information and materials as the Board may reasonably request; and
a stockholder directly or indirectly soliciting proxies from other stockholders to use a proxy card color other than white;
reflect updates to requirements about stockholder lists at stockholder meetings and meeting adjournment notices, consistent with recent amendments to the Delaware General Corporation Law; and
use gender neutral terms.
The foregoing general description of the amendments to the Bylaws does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Bylaws set forth in Exhibit 3.02 to this Form 8-K and incorporated in this Item by reference.
