The aggregate number of shares which the corporation shall have the authority to issue is 30,500,000 shares, of which 30,000,000 shares shall be common shares, par value $0.30 each (“Common
Stock”) and of which 500,000 shares shall be preferred shares, par value $100.00 each (“Preferred Stock”), issuable in series.
The board of directors of the Corporation (the “Board”) is hereby authorized from time to time to divide all or any part of the preferred shares into series thereof and to fix and determine variations, if any, between any series so established as to any one or more of the following matters:
The rate of dividends;
The price at and the terms and conditions under which shares may be redeemed;
The amount payable upon shares in the event of voluntary liquidation;
The amount payable upon shares in the event of involuntary liquidation;
Sinking fund provisions for the redemption or purchase of shares;
The terms and conditions on which shares may be converted, if the shares of any series are issued with the privilege of conversion;
Voting rights; and
Any and all other provisions as may be fixed or determined by the Board pursuant to Delaware law.
All shares of Preferred Stock shall be identical except as to the relative rights and preferences fixed and determined from time to time by the Board with respect to different series of shares when each such series is established in accordance with the Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, and the DGCL.
The following provisions set forth the preferences, limitations and relative rights of the classes of shares:
(i) Preferred Dividends. The holders of all preferred shares, regardless of series, at the time outstanding shall be entitled to receive, when and as declared to be payable by the Board, out of any funds legally available for the payment thereof, dividends at the rate theretofore fixed by the Board for each series of such preferred shares that have theretofore been established, and no more, with dividend payment dates at such intervals as the Board shall determine.
(ii) Dividends other than Preferred Dividends. After adequate provision has been made for payment of full dividends on all preferred shares then outstanding for all past dividend periods and for the current dividend period, the Board may declare such further dividends as are permitted by law, and the Board shall have the absolute discretion of fixing the fashion in which holders of preferred shares and holders of common shares shall participate in such further dividends, with provision being made for one class participating more fully than the other or to the total exclusion of the other.
(iii) Cumulativeness of Preferred Dividends. Dividends on all preferred shares, regardless of series, shall be cumulative. No dividends shall be declared on any shares of any series of preferred shares for any dividend period unless all dividends accumulated for all prior dividend periods shall have been declared or shall then be declared at the same time upon all preferred shares then outstanding. No dividends shall be declared on shares of any series of preferred shares unless a dividend for the same period shall be declared at the same time upon all preferred shares outstanding at the time of such declaration in like proportion to the dividend rate then declared. No dividends shall be declared or paid on the common shares unless full dividends on all the preferred shares then outstanding for all past dividend periods and for the current dividend period shall have been declared and the Corporation shall have paid such dividends or shall have set apart a sum sufficient for the payment thereof.
(iv) Preferences on Liquidation. In the event of any dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, the holders of each series of the then outstanding preferred shares shall be entitled to receive the amount fixed for such purpose in the resolution or resolutions of the Board establishing the respective series of preferred shares that might then be outstanding, together with a sum equal to the amount of all accumulated and unpaid dividends thereon at the dividend rate fixed therefor in the resolution or resolutions. After such payment to such holders of preferred shares, the remaining assets and funds of the Corporation shall be distributed pro rata among the holders of the common shares. A consolidation, merger or other reorganization of the Corporation with any other corporation or corporations or a sale for all or substantially all of the assets of the Corporation shall not be considered a dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation within the meaning of these provisions.
(v) Redemption Privileges of the Corporation. The whole or any part of the outstanding preferred shares or the whole or any part of any series thereof may be called for redemption and redeemed at any time at the option of the Corporation, exercisable by the Board upon thirty (30) days’ notice by mail to the holders of such shares as are to be redeemed, by paying therefore in case the redemption price fixed for such shares in the resolution or resolutions of the Board establishing the respective series of which the shares to be redeemed are a part, together with a sum equal to the amount of all accumulated and unpaid dividends thereon at the dividend rate fixed therefor in the resolution or resolutions to the date fixed for such redemption. The Corporation may redeem the whole or any part of the shares of any series without redeeming the whole or any part of the shares of any other series; provided however, that if at any time less than the whole of the preferred shares of any particular series then outstanding shall be called for redemption, the particular shares called for redemption shall be determined by lot or by such other equitable as may be determined by the Board. The Corporation may, on or prior to the date fixed for redemption of the redeemable shares as specified in the notice, deposit with any bank or trust company in the city of Houston, Texas, or any bank or trust company in the United States duly appointed and acting as transfer agent for the Corporation, as a trust fund, a sum sufficient to redeem shares called for redemption, with irrevocable instructions and authority to such bank or trust company to give or complete the notice of redemption thereof and to pay, on or after the date fixed for such redemption, to the respective holders of shares, as evidenced by a list of holders of such shares certified by the corporation by its President or a Vice President and by its Secretary or an Assistant Secretary, the redemptive price upon the surrender of their respective share certificates. Thereafter, from and after the date fixed for redemption, such shares shall be deemed to be redeemed and dividends thereon shall cease to accrue after such date fixed for redemption. Such deposit shall be deemed to constitute full payment of such shares to their holders. Thereafter, such shares shall no longer be deemed to be outstanding, and the holders thereof shall cease to be stockholders with respect to such shares, and shall have no rights with respect thereto except the right to receive from the bank or trust company payment of the redemptive price of such shares without interest, upon the surrender of their respective certificates therefor, and any right to convert such shares which may exist. In case the holders of shares shall not, within six (6) years after the deposit, claim the amount deposited for redemption thereof, such bank or trust company shall upon demand pay over to
the Corporation the balance of such amount so deposited to be held in trust and such bank or trust company shall thereupon be relieved of all responsibility to the holders thereof.
(vi) Conversion Privilege. The Board is authorized to grant or to deny to the holders of shares of one or more of the series of preferred shares the right to convert such preferred shares into common shares with par value $0.30 per share, and the Board is further authorized to fix and determine the terms and conditions on which such preferred shares may be so converted into common shares. The conversion rights granted, fixed and determined pursuant to the preceding sentence, along with the terms and conditions thereof, shall be set forth in the resolution or resolutions in which the Board establishes the respective series of preferred shares.
(vii) Preemptive Rights Denied. No stockholder of the Corporation shall have any preemptive right with respect to shares of stock, securities convertible into shares of stock, unissued or treasury shares of the Corporation of any class now or hereafter authorized or held.
(viii) Voting Rights. The holders of Common Stock shall vote one (1) vote for each share of Common Stock with respect to all affairs of the Corporation The Board is authorized to fix and determine or to deny voting rights
with respect to one or more series of the preferred shares, and such voting rights shall be fixed and determined or denied in the resolution or resolutions adopted by the Board by which such respective series of preferred shares is established.
