In furtherance and not in limitation of the powers conferred by statute, the Board shall have the power, both before and after receipt of any payment for any of the Corporation’s capital stock, to adopt, amend, repeal or otherwise alter the bylaws of the Corporation (the “Bylaws”); provided, however, that the grant of such power to the Board shall not divest the stockholders of or limit their power to adopt, amend, repeal or otherwise alter the Bylaws.

If the DGCL is hereafter amended to authorize corporate action further eliminating or limiting the personal liability of directors, then the liability of a director of the Corporation shall be eliminated or limited to the fullest extent authorized by the DGCL, as so amended. Any repeal or modification of this Article 7 shall not adversely affect any right or protection of a director of the Corporation with respect to any acts or omissions of such director occurring prior to such repeal or modification.
