Comprehensive Income In accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 130, "Reporting Comprehensive Income," total comprehensive income for the three months ended September 30, 2000, and October 2, 1999, was approximately $8.5 million and $7.2 million, respectively, and the nine months ended September 30, 2000, and October 2, 1999, was $28.1 million and $16.4 million, respectively. The adjustment for comprehensive income is related to the Company's foreign currency translation. 5. Recently Issued Accounting Standard In June 1998, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued SFAS 133, "Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities," which establishes accounting and reporting standards for derivatives and hedging activities. The Company is required to adopt SFAS 133 on March 31, 2001, and does not expect adoption to have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.

Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations Results of Operations Sales for the third quarter 2000 increased 31% or $23.1 million to $96.4 million, compared to $73.3 million in the third quarter of 1999. Growth in worldwide demand for electronic products, particularly in the telecommunications and wireless markets, continued to be the driving force behind increased sales. Sales in the Americas increased 33% over the third quarter of 1999 primarily due to continued strength in the electronics market. Sales in Europe grew 28% in dollars and 43% in constant currency, and in the Asia-Pacific region sales increased 31% in dollars and 30% in constant currency. Increased electronic product sales contributed to higher sales in all regions of the world. Electronic sales increased to $61.6 million in the third quarter of 2000 from $38.6 million in the same quarter of last year for an increase of $23.0 million or 60%. Excluding sales of suppression products, acquired in October 1999, sales of electronic products increased $13.4 million or 35% over the prior year. Automotive sales increased to $23.9 million in the third quarter 2000 from $23.4 million in the same quarter last year for an increase of $0.5 million or 2%. Automotive sales excluding suppression products were down 3%, as higher U.S. automotive OEM sales were offset by lower U.S. aftermarket sales and the effects of the weaker Euro. Power fuse sales decreased $0.5 million or 5% to $10.8 million in the third quarter 2000 from $11.3 million in the same quarter last year. Gross margin was $38.7 million or 40.2% of sales for the third quarter of 2000 compared to $29.3 million or 40.0% in the same quarter last year. Operating income increased to $16.3 million or 16.9% of sales in the third quarter of 2000 compared to $11.5 million or 15.7% in the prior year. The continued benefit from higher unit volumes and ongoing cost reduction activities contributed to the increase in gross margin and operating income as compared to the prior year. Operating expenses, excluding amortization, were $20.8 million or 21.6% of sales for the third quarter of 2000 compared to $16.0 million or 21.9% of sales for the same quarter in the prior year. Amortization of the reorganization value and other intangibles decreased to 1.8% of sales for the third quarter of 2000, from 2.4 % of sales in the third quarter of 1999 due to increased sales. Total operating expenses, including intangible amortization, were 23.3% of sales in the third quarter of 2000 compared to 24.3% of sales in the same quarter last year. Interest expense was $1.1 million in the third quarter of this year compared to $1.3 million in the third quarter of last year due to lower average debt levels. Other income was $0.3 million for the third quarter of 2000 compared to $0.4 million in the third quarter of the prior year. Income before income taxes was $15.4 million for the third quarter 2000 compared to $10.6 million for the third quarter of 1999. Income taxes were $5.7 million with an effective tax rate of 37% for the third quarter of 2000 compared to $4.0 million with an effective tax rate of 38% in the third quarter of last year. Net income increased 48% to $9.7 million in the third quarter this year compared to $6.6 million in the third quarter of last year and diluted earnings per share increased 44% to $0.44 in the third quarter this year compared to $0.30 per diluted share in the same quarter last year. Nine Months, 2000. Sales for the first nine months increased 35% to $289.0 million from $214.4 million last year. Nine months electronics sales were up 68% at $179.4 million compared to $107.0 million last year. Automotive sales were up 4% at $77.7 million compared to $74.9 million last year. Power fuse sales were down 2% at $31.9 million from $32.5 million last year. As detailed above in discussion of the quarterly results, increased sales of electronic products have been driven by telecommunications and wireless applications. Gross margin was $117.3 million or 40.6% for the first nine months of 2000 compared to $83.2 million or 38.8% the first nine months of last year. Operating income for the first nine months of 2000 increased 59.6% to $50.2 million from $31.5 million last year. Operating expenses, excluding amortization, were 21.4% of sales for the first nine months of 2000 compared to 21.7% last year. The amortization of intangibles was 1.8% of sales for the first nine months of 2000 compared to 2.4% last year. Total operating expenses including intangibles amortization were 23.2% of sales for the first nine months of 2000 compared to 24.1% of sales for the first nine months of last year. Interest expense was $3.5 million for the first nine months of 2000 compared to $4.0 million last year. Other income was $1.9 million for the first nine months of 2000 compared to $1.0 million for the same period last year. Income before taxes was $48.6 million for the first nine months of 2000 compared to $28.4 million the first nine months of last year. Income taxes were $18.0 million the first nine months 2000 compared to $10.8 million last year. Net income for the first nine months of 2000 increased 74% to $30.6 million from $17.6 million for the same period last year. Earnings per share for the first nine months of 2000 increased 70% to $1.38 per diluted share compared to $0.81 per diluted share last year. Liquidity and Capital Resources Assuming no material adverse changes in market conditions or interest rates, management expects that the Company will have sufficient cash from operations to support both its operations and its current debt obligations for the foreseeable future. Littelfuse started the 2000 year with $1.9 million of cash. Net cash provided by operations was $28.2 million for the first nine months. Net cash used to invest in property, plant and equipment was $15.7 million. Cash used to repay long term debt and to repurchase stock was $11.4 million. In addition, proceeds from warrant and stock option exercises were $4.0 million, resulting in net cash used in financing activities of $7.4 million. The net increase in cash for the nine months ended September 30, 2000 was $4.2 million, leaving the Company with a cash balance of approximately $6.1 million at September 30, 2000. The ratio of current assets to current liabilities was 2.0 to 1 at the end of the third quarter 2000 compared to 1.5 to 1 at year end 1999 and 1.9 to 1 at the end of the third quarter 1999. The days sales in receivables was approximately 64 days at the end of the third quarter 2000 compared to 68 days at year-end 1999 and 69 days at third quarter end 1999. The days inventory outstanding was approximately 91 days at third quarter end 2000 compared to 94 days at year-end 1999 and 82 days at third quarter end 1999. The Company's capital expenditures were $7.6 million for the third quarter 2000. The Company expects that capital expenditures, which are primarily for new machinery, equipment and information systems, will be approximately $22 million for the full year 2000. The long-term debt at the end of the third quarter 2000 consisted of five types totaling $68.5 million. They are as follows: (1) private placement notes totaling $50.0 million, (2) foreign revolver borrowings totaling $3.2 million, (3) notes payable relating to mortgages totaling $0.3 million, (4) U.S. revolver borrowings totaling $13.5 million and (5) other long-term debt, including capital leases, totaling $1.5 million. These five items include $17.8 million of senior notes and mortgage notes, which are considered to be current liabilities. This leaves net long-term debt totaling $50.7 million at September 30, 2000. During the quarter, the Company made the final $9.0 million principal payment on the 1993 private placement notes. The remaining private placement notes carry an interest rate of 6.16%. The Company has a $55.0 million revolver in the U.S., of which $41.5 million was available at September 30, 2000. The bank revolver loan notes carry an interest rate of prime or LIBOR plus 0.375%, which currently is approximately 7.0%. The Company also has an $8.0 million letter of credit facility, of which approximately $1.6 million was being used at September 30, 2000 Business Segment Information The Company designs, manufactures and sells circuit protection devices throughout the world. The Company has three reportable geographic segments: The Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific. The circuit protection market in these geographical segments is categorized into three major product areas: electronic, automotive and power fuses. The Company evaluates the performance of each geographic segment based on its net income or loss. The Company also accounts for intersegment sales as if the sales were to third parties. The Company's reportable segments are the business units where the revenue is earned and expenses are incurred. The Company has subsidiaries in The Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific where each region is measured based on its sales and operating income or loss. Information concerning the operations in these geographic segments for the period ended September 30, 2000 and October 2, 1999, is as follows (in thousands):

"Safe Harbor" Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The preceding commentary presents management's discussion and analysis of the Company's financial condition and results of operations for the periods presented. Certain of the statements included above, including those regarding future financial performance or results or those that are not historical facts, are or contain "forward-looking" information as that term is defined in the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The words "expect," "believe," "anticipate," "project," "estimate," and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. The Company cautions readers that any such statements are not guarantees of future performance or events and such statements involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions, including, but not limited to, product demand and market acceptance risks, the effect of economic conditions, the impact of competitive products and pricing, product development and patent protection, commercialization and technological difficulties, capacity and supply constraints or difficulties, actual purchases under agreements, the effect of the Company's accounting policies, currency rate fluctuations, and other factors discussed above and in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 1, 2000. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize or should the underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results and outcomes may differ materially from those indicated or implied in the forward-looking statements. This report should be read in conjunction with information provided in the financial statements appearing in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 1, 2000. Item 3. Qualitative and Quantitative Disclosures about Market Risk The Company is exposed to market risk from changes in interest rates, foreign exchange rates and commodities. The Company had long-term debt outstanding at September 30, 2000 in the form of Senior Notes and lines of credit at both variable and fixed interest rates. Since substantially all of the debt has fixed interest rates, the Company's interest expense is not sensitive to changes in interest rate levels. A portion of the Company's operations consists of manufacturing and sales activities in foreign countries. The Company has manufacturing facilities in Mexico, England, Ireland, Switzerland, South Korea, China and the Philippines. Substantially all sales in Europe are denominated in Dutch Guilders, British Pounds Sterling, United States Dollars and Euros and substantially all sales in the Asia-Pacific region are denominated in United States Dollars and South Korean Won. The Company's identifiable foreign exchange exposures result from the purchase and sale of products from affiliates, repayment of intercompany trade and loan amounts and translation of local currency amounts in consolidation of financial results. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates or weak economic conditions in the foreign countries in which it manufactures and distributes products could affect the Company's sales and financial results. Other than utilizing netting and offsetting intercompany account management techniques to reduce known exposures, the Company does not use derivative financial instruments to mitigate its foreign currency risk at the present time. The Company uses various metals in the production of its products, including zinc, copper and silver. The Company's earnings are exposed to fluctuations in the prices of these commodities. The Company does not currently use derivative financial instruments to mitigate this commodity price risk.

BYLAWS OF LITTELFUSE, INC. (the "Corporation") ARTICLE I OFFICES Section 1. Registered Office. The registered office of the Corporation shall be at 1209 Orange Street, Wilmington, New Castle County, Delaware 19801. Section 2. Other Offices. The Corporation may also have offices at such other places, both within and without the State of Delaware, as the Board of Directors may from time to time determine or the business of the Corporation may require. ARTICLE II STOCKHOLDERS Section 1. Annual Meeting. An annual meeting of the stockholders of the Corporation shall be held each calendar year on such date and at such place and time as may be fixed by resolution of the Board of Directors. Section 2. Special Meeting. Subject to the rights of the holders of any series of stock having a preference over the Common Stock of the Corporation as to dividends or upon liquidation ("Preferred Stock") with respect to such series of Preferred Stock, special meetings of the stockholders may be called only by the Chairman of the Board or by the Board of Directors pursuant to a resolution adopted by a majority of the total number of directors which the Corporation would have if there were no vacancies (the "Whole Board"). Section 3. Place of Meeting. The Board of Directors or the Chairman of the Board, as the case may be, may designate the place of meeting for any annual meeting or for any special meeting of the stockholders called by the Board of Directors or the Chairman of the Board. If no designation is so made, the place of meeting shall be the principal office of the Corporation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Board of Directors may, in its sole discretion, determine that any such annual meeting shall not be held at any designated place, but may instead be held solely by means of remote communication. Section 4. Notice of Meeting. Written or printed notice, stating the place, if any, day and hour of any annual meeting or special meeting of the stockholders and the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called, shall be given by the Corporation not less than ten (10) days nor more than sixty (60) days before the date of the meeting. Such further notice shall be given as may be required by law. Only such business shall be conducted at a special meeting of stockholders as shall have been brought before the meeting pursuant to the Corporation's notice of meeting. Meetings may be held without notice if all stockholders entitled to vote are present or if notice is waived by those not present in accordance with Section 2 of Article V of these Bylaws. Any previously scheduled meeting of the stockholders may be postponed, and (unless the Certificate of Incorporation otherwise provides) any special meeting of the stockholders may be cancelled, by resolution of the Board of Directors upon public notice given prior to the date previously scheduled for such meeting of stockholders. Section 5. Quorum and Adjournment. Except as otherwise provided by the Certificate of Incorporation, the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of the Corporation entitled to vote generally in the election of directors (the "Voting Stock"), represented in person or by proxy, shall constitute a quorum at a meeting of stockholders, except that when specified business is to be voted on by a class or series of stock voting as a class, the holders of a majority of the shares of such class or series shall constitute a quorum of such class or series for the transaction of such business. The Board of Directors may, in its sole discretion, adopt guidelines and procedures so that stockholders and proxyholders not physically present at a meeting of stockholders may, by means of remote communication, be deemed present in person at a meeting of stockholders, whether such meeting is to be held at a designated place or solely by means of remote communication. The Chairman of the meeting or a majority of the shares so represented may adjourn the meeting from time to time, whether or not there is such a quorum. No notice of the time and place of adjourned meetings need be given except as required by law. The stockholders present at a duly called meeting at which a quorum is present may continue to transact business until adjournment, notwithstanding the withdrawal of enough stockholders to leave less than a quorum. Section 6. Proxies and Electronic Voting. At all meetings of stockholders, a stockholder may vote by proxy executed in writing (or in such manner prescribed by the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware) by the stockholder, or by such stockholder's duly authorized attorney in fact. The Board of Directors may, in its sole discretion, adopt guidelines and procedures so that stockholders and proxyholders not physically present at a meeting of stockholders may, by means of remote communication, participate in a meeting of stockholders and be deemed present in person and vote at a meeting of stockholders, whether such meeting is to be held at a designated place or solely by means of remote communication, provided that (i) the Corporation shall implement reasonable measures to verify that each person deemed present and permitted to vote at the meeting by means of remote communication is a stockholder or proxyholder, (ii) the Corporation shall implement reasonable measures to provide such stockholders and proxyholders a reasonable opportunity to participate in the meeting and to vote on matters submitted to the stockholders, including an opportunity to read or hear the proceedings of the meeting substantially concurrently with such proceedings, and (iii) if any stockholder or proxyholder votes or takes other action at the meeting by means of remote communication, a record of such vote or other action shall be maintained by the Corporation. Section 7. Notice of Stockholder Business and Nominations. (A) Annual Meeting of Stockholders. (1) Nominations of persons for election to the Board of Directors of the Corporation and the proposal of business to be considered by the stockholders may be made at an annual meeting of stockholders (a) pursuant to the Corporation's notice of meeting, (b) by or at the direction of the Board of Directors or (c) by any stockholder of the Corporation who was a stockholder of record at the time of giving of notice provided for in this Section 7(A) who is entitled to vote at the meeting and who complies with the notice procedures set forth in this Section 7(A). (2) For nominations or other business to be properly brought before an annual meeting by a stockholder pursuant to clause (c) of Section 7(A)(1) of these Bylaws, the stockholder must have given timely notice thereof in writing to the Secretary of the Corporation and such other business must otherwise be a proper matter for stockholder action. To be timely, a stockholder's notice shall be delivered to the Secretary at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not later than the close of business on the 60th day nor earlier than the close of business on the 90th day prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year's annual meeting of stockholders; provided, however, that in the event that the date of the annual meeting to which such stockholder's notice relates is more than 30 days before or more than 60 days after such anniversary date, notice by the stockholder to be timely must be so delivered not earlier than the close of business on the 90th day prior to such annual meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of the 60th day prior to such annual meeting or the 10th day following the day on which public announcement of the date of such annual meeting is first made by the Corporation. In no event shall the public announcement of an adjournment of an annual meeting commence a new time period for the giving of a stockholder's notice as described above. Such stockholder's notice shall set forth (a) as to each person whom the stockholder proposes to nominate for election or re-election as a director all information relating to such person that is required to be disclosed in solicitations of proxies for election of directors in an election contest, or is otherwise required, in each case pursuant to Regulation 14A under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act") and Rule 14a-11 thereunder (including such person's written consent to being named in the proxy statement as a nominee and to serving as a director if elected); (b) as to any other business that the stockholder proposes to bring before the meeting, a brief description of the business desired to be brought before the meeting, the reasons for conducting such business at the meeting and any material interest in such business of such stockholder and the beneficial owner, if any, on whose behalf the proposal is made; and (c) as to the stockholder giving the notice and the beneficial owner, if any, on whose behalf the nomination or proposal is made (i) the name and address of such stockholder, as they appear on the Corporation's books, and of such beneficial owner and (ii) the class and number of shares of the Corporation which are owned beneficially and of record by such stockholder and such beneficial owner. (3) Notwithstanding anything in the second sentence of Section 7(A)(2) of these Bylaws to the contrary, in the event that the number of directors to be elected to the Board of Directors of the Corporation is increased and there is no public announcement by the Corporation naming all of the nominees for director or specifying the size of the increased Board of Directors at least 70 days prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year's annual meeting, a stockholder's notice required by this Section 7(A) shall also be considered timely, but only with respect to nominees for any new positions created by such increase, if it shall be delivered to the Secretary at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not later than the close of business on the 10th day following the day on which such public announcement is first made by the Corporation. (B) Special Meetings of Stockholders. Only such business shall be conducted at a special meeting of stockholders as shall have been brought before the meeting pursuant to the Corporation's notice of meeting. Nominations of persons for election to the Board of Directors may be made at a special meeting of stockholders at which directors are to be elected pursuant to the Corporation's notice of meeting (a) by or at the direction of the Board of Directors or (b) provided that the Board of Directors has determined that directors shall be elected at such special meeting, by any stockholder of the Corporation who is a stockholder of record at the time of giving of notice provided for in this Section 7(B), who shall be entitled to vote at the meeting and who complies with the notice procedures set forth in this Section 7(B). In the event the Corporation calls a special meeting of stockholders for the purpose of electing one or more directors to the Board of Directors, any such stockholder may nominate a person or persons (as the case may be), for election to such position(s) as specified in the Corporation's notice of meeting, if the stockholder's notice required by Section 7(A)(2) of these Bylaws shall be delivered to the Secretary at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not earlier than the close of business on the 90th day prior to such special meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of the 60th day prior to such special meeting or the 10th day following the day on which public announcement is first made of the date of the special meeting and of the nominees proposed by the Board of Directors to be elected at such meeting. In no event shall the public announcement of an adjournment of a special meeting commence a new time period for the giving of a stockholder's notice as described above. (C) General. (1) Only such persons who are nominated in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 7 shall be eligible to serve as directors and only such business shall be conducted at a meeting of stockholders as shall have been brought before the meeting in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 7. Except as otherwise provided by law, the Certificate of Incorporation or these Bylaws, the Chairman of the meeting shall have the power and duty to determine whether a nomination or any business proposed to be brought before the meeting was made or proposed, as the case may be, in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 7 and, if any proposed nomination or business is not in compliance with this Section 7, to declare that such defective proposal or nomination shall be disregarded. (2) For purposes of this Section 7, "public announcement" shall mean disclosure in a press release reported by the Dow Jones News Service, Associated Press or comparable national news service or in a document publicly filed by the Corporation with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Section 13, 14 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act. (3) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 7, a stockholder shall also comply with all applicable requirements of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations thereunder with respect to the matters set forth in this Section 7. Nothing in this Section 7 shall be deemed to affect any rights (a) of stockholders to request inclusion of proposals in the Corporation's proxy statement pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act or (b) of the holders of any series of Preferred Stock to elect directors under specified circumstances. Section 8. Procedure for Election of Directors; Required Vote. Election of directors at all meetings of the stockholders at which directors are to be elected shall be by ballot and, subject to the rights of the holders of any series of Preferred Stock to elect directors under specified circumstances, a plurality of the votes cast thereat shall elect directors. If authorized by the Board of Directors, such requirement of a written ballot shall be satisfied by a ballot submitted by electronic transmission, provided that any such electronic transmission must either set forth or be submitted with information from which it can be determined that the electronic transmission was authorized by the stockholder or proxyholder. Except as otherwise provided by law, the Certificate of Incorporation or these Bylaws, in all matters other than the election of directors, the affirmative vote of a majority of the shares present in person or represented by proxy at the meeting and entitled to vote on the matter shall be the act of the stockholders. Section 9. Inspectors of Election; Opening and Closing the Polls. The Board of Directors by resolution shall appoint one or more inspectors, which inspector or inspectors may include individuals who serve the Corporation in other capacities, including, without limitation, as officers, employees, agents or representatives, to act at a meeting of stockholders and make a written report thereof. One or more persons may be designated as alternative inspectors to replace any inspector who fails to act. If no inspector or alternate has been appointed to act or is able to act at a meeting of stockholders, the Chairman of the meeting shall appoint one or more inspectors to act at the meeting. Each inspector, before discharging his or her duties, shall take and sign an oath to execute faithfully the duties of inspector with strict impartiality and according to the best of his or her ability. The inspectors shall have the duties prescribed by law. The Chairman of the meeting shall fix and announce at the meeting the date and time of the opening and the closing of the polls for each matter upon which the stockholders will vote at the meeting. Section 10. Record Date for Action by Written Consent. In order that the Corporation may determine the stockholders entitled to consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting, the Board of Directors may fix a record date, which record date shall not precede the date upon which the resolution fixing the record date is adopted by the Board of Directors, and which record date shall not be more than ten (10) days after the date upon which the resolution fixing the record date is adopted by the Board of Directors. Any stockholder of record seeking to have the stockholders authorize or take corporate action by written consent shall, by written notice to the Secretary, request the Board of Directors to fix a record date. The Board of Directors shall promptly, but in all events within ten (10) days after the date on which such a request is received, adopt a resolution fixing the record date. If no record date has been fixed by the Board of Directors within ten (10) days of the date on which such request is received, the record date for determining stockholders entitled to consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting, when no prior action by the Board of Directors is required by applicable law, shall be the first date on which a signed written consent setting forth the action taken or proposed to be taken is delivered to the Corporation by delivery to its registered office in Delaware, its principal place of business or to any officer or agent of the Corporation having custody of the book in which proceedings of meetings of stockholders are recorded. Delivery made to the Corporation's registered office shall be by hand or by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested. If no record date has been fixed by the Board of Directors and prior action by the Board of Directors is required by applicable law, the record date for determining stockholders entitled to consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting shall be at the close of business on the date on which the Board of Directors adopts the resolution taking such prior action. Section 11. Inspectors of Written Consent. In the event of the delivery, in the manner provided by Section 10 of this Article II, to the Corporation of the requisite written consent or consents to take corporate action and/or related revocation or revocations, the Corporation shall engage nationally recognized independent inspectors of elections for the purpose of promptly performing a ministerial review of the validity of the consents and revocations. For the purpose of permitting the inspectors to perform such review, no action by written consent without a meeting shall be effective until such date as the independent inspectors certify to the Corporation that the consents delivered to the Corporation in accordance with Section 10 of this Article II represent at least the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to take the corporate action. Nothing contained in this Section 11 shall in any way be construed to suggest or imply that the Board of Directors or any stockholder shall not be entitled to contest the validity of any consent or revocation thereof, whether before or after such certification by the independent inspectors, or to take any other action (including, without limitation, the commencement, prosecution or defense of any litigation with respect thereto, and the seeking of injunctive relief in such litigation). Section 12. Effectiveness of Written Consent. Every written consent shall bear the date of signature of each stockholder who signs the consent and no written consent shall be effective to take the corporate action referred to therein unless, within 60 days of the date the earliest dated written consent was received in accordance with Section 10 of this Article II, a written consent or consents signed by a sufficient number of holders to take such action are delivered to the Corporation in the manner prescribed in Section 10 of this Article II. ARTICLE III DIRECTORS Section 1. Management. The business and affairs of the Corporation shall be managed by its Board of Directors, who may exercise all such powers of the Corporation and do all such lawful acts and things as are not by statute, the Certificate of Incorporation or these Bylaws directed or required to be exercised or done by the stockholders. The Board of Directors shall keep regular minutes of its proceedings. Section 2. Number; Election. The number of directors which shall constitute the whole Board of Directors shall be six (6). No directors need be stockholders or residents of the State of Delaware. The directors shall be elected at the annual meeting of the stockholders, except as hereinafter provided, and each director elected shall hold office until his successor is elected and qualified or until his earlier resignation or removal. Section 3. Change in Number. The number of directors may be increased or decreased from time to time by resolution of the Board of Directors, but no decrease shall have the effect of shortening the term of any incumbent director. Section 4. Removal. Any director may be removed, with or without cause, at any annual or special meeting of stockholders, by the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the shares represented in person or by proxy at such meeting and entitled to vote for the election of such director, if notice of the intention to act upon such matters shall have been given in the notice calling such meeting. Section 5. Vacancies and Newly Created Directorships. Vacancies and newly-created directorships resulting from any increase in the authorized number of directors may be filled by a majority of the directors then in office, although less than a quorum, or by a sole remaining director. Each director so chosen shall hold office until the first annual meeting of stockholders held after his election and until his successor is elected and qualified or until his earlier resignation or removal. If at any time there are no directors in office, an election of directors may be held in the manner provided by statute. Except as otherwise provided in these Bylaws, when one or more directors shall resign from the Board of Directors, effective at a future date, a majority of the directors then in office, including those who have so resigned, shall have the power to fill such vacancy or vacancies, the vote thereon to take effect when such resignation or resignations shall become effective, and each director so chosen shall hold office as provided in these Bylaws with respect to the filling of other vacancies. Section 6. Election of Directors; Cumulative Voting Prohibited. At every election of directors, each stockholder shall have the right to vote in person or by proxy or, if authorized by the Board of Directors, by electronic transmission, the number of voting shares owned by such stockholder for as many persons as there are directors to be elected and for whose election such stockholder has a right to vote. Cumulative voting shall be prohibited. Section 7. Place of Meetings. The directors of the Corporation may hold their meetings, both regular and special, either within or without the State of Delaware, or, at the sole discretion of the Board of Directors, any of such meetings may not be held at any designated place, but may instead be held solely by means of telephone conference or other communications equipment pursuant to Section 12 of this Article III. Section 8. First Meetings. The first meeting of each newly elected Board shall be held without further notice immediately following the annual meeting of stockholders, and at the same place, unless by unanimous consent of the directors then elected and serving, such time or place shall be changed. Section 9. Regular Meetings. Regular meetings of the Board of Directors may be held without notice at such time and place as shall from time to time be determined by the Board of Directors, or, at the sole discretion of the Board of Directors, any of such meetings may not be held at any designated place, but may instead be held solely by means of telephone conference or other communications equipment pursuant to Section 12 of this Article III. Section 10. Special Meetings. Special meetings of the Board of Directors may be called by the President on twenty-four (24) hours' notice to each director, if by electronic transmission or hand delivery, or on three (3) days' notice to each director, if by mail, telegram or cablegram. Special meetings may be called in like manner and on like notice on the written request of any one of the directors. Except as may be otherwise expressly provided by statute, the Certificate of Incorporation or these Bylaws, neither the business to be transacted at, nor the purpose of, any special meeting need be specified in a notice or waiver of notice. Section 11. Quorum. At all meetings of the Board of Directors, the presence of a majority of the directors shall be necessary and sufficient to constitute a quorum for the transaction of business, and the vote of a majority of the directors present at any meeting at which a quorum is present shall be the act of the Board of Directors, except as may be otherwise specifically provided by statute, or the Certificate of Incorporation or these Bylaws. If a quorum shall not be present at any meeting of directors, the directors present thereat may adjourn the meeting from time to time, without notice other than announcement at the meeting, until a quorum shall be present. Section 12. Action Without Meeting; Telephone Meetings. Any action required or permitted to be taken at a meeting of the Board of Directors or of any committee thereof may be taken without a meeting if all the members of the Board of Directors or of such committee, as the case may be, consent thereto in writing and/or by electronic transmission, and the writing or writings or electronic transmission or transmissions are filed with the minutes of proceedings of the Board of Directors or such committee, as the case may be. Such filing shall be in paper form if the minutes are maintained in paper form and shall be in electronic form if the minutes are maintained in electronic form. Such consent shall have the same force and effect as a unanimous vote at a meeting. Subject to applicable notice provisions and unless otherwise restricted by the Certificate of Incorporation, members of the Board of Directors, or any committee designated by the Board of Directors, may participate in and hold a meeting by means of conference telephone or other communications equipment by means of which all persons participating in the meeting can hear each other, and participation in such meeting shall constitute presence in person at such meeting, except where a person's participation is for the express purpose of objecting to the transaction of any business on the ground that the meeting is not lawfully called or convened. Section 13. Chairman of the Board. The Board of Directors may elect a Chairman of the Board to preside at their meetings and to perform such other duties as the Board of Directors may from time to time assign to him. Section 14. Compensation. Directors, as such, shall not receive any stated salary for their services, but, by resolution of the Board of Directors, a fixed sum and expenses of attendance, if any, may be allowed for attendance at each regular or special meeting of the Board of Directors; provided, that nothing herein contained shall be construed to preclude any director from serving the Corporation in any other capacity and receiving compensation therefor. ARTICLE IV COMMITTEES Section 1. Designation. The Board of Directors may, by resolution passed by a majority of the entire Board of Directors, designate one or more committees. Section 2. Number; Qualification; Term. Each committee shall consist of one or more directors appointed by resolution adopted by a majority of the entire Board of Directors. The number of committee members may be increased or decreased from time to time by resolution adopted by a majority of the entire Board of Directors. Each committee member shall serve as such until the earliest of (i) the expiration of his term as director, (ii) his resignation as a committee member or as a director, or (iii) his removal as a committee member or as a director. Section 3. Authority. Each committee, to the extent expressly provided in the resolution of the Board of Directors establishing such committee, shall have and may exercise all of the authority of the Board of Directors in the management of the business and affairs of the Corporation except to the extent expressly restricted by statute, the Certificate of Incorporation or these Bylaws. Section 4. Committee Changes; Removal. The Board of Directors shall have the power at any time to fill vacancies in, to change the membership of, and to discharge any committee. The Board of Directors may remove any committee member, at any time, with or without cause. Section 5. Alternate Members of Committees. The Board of Directors may designate one or more directors as alternate members of any committee. Any such alternate member may replace any absent or disqualified member at any meeting of the committee. Section 6. Regular Meetings. Regular meetings of any committee may be held without notice at such time and place as may be designated from time to time by the committee and communicated to all members thereof or, at the sole discretion of the committee, any of such may not be held at any designated place, but may instead be held solely by means of telephone conference or other communications equipment pursuant to the provisions of Section 12 of Article III hereof. Section 7. Special Meetings Special meetings of any committee may be held whenever called by any committee member. The committee member calling any special meeting shall cause notice of such special meeting, including therein the time and place, if any, of such special meeting, to be given to each committee member at least (i) twenty-four (24) hours before such special meeting if notice is given by electronic transmission or hand delivery or (ii) at least three days before such special meeting if notice is given by mail, telegram or cablegram. Neither the business to be transacted at, nor the purpose of, any special meeting of any committee need be specified in the notice or waiver of notice of any special meeting. Section 8. Quorum; Majority Vote. At meetings of any committee, a majority of the number of members designated by the Board of Directors shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. If a quorum is not present at a meeting of any committee, a majority of the members present may adjourn the meeting from time to time, without notice other than an announcement at the meeting, until a quorum is present. The act of a majority of the members present at any meeting at which a quorum is in attendance shall be the act of a committee, unless the act of a greater number is required by law, the Certificate of Incorporation or these Bylaws. Section 9. Minutes. Each committee shall cause minutes of its proceedings to be prepared and shall report the same to the Board of Directors upon the request of the Board of Directors. The minutes of the proceedings of each committee shall be delivered to the Secretary of the Corporation for placement in the minute books of the Corporation. Section 10. Compensation. Committee members may, by resolution of the Board of Directors, be allowed a fixed sum and expenses of attendance, if any, for attending any committee meetings or a stated salary. Section 11. Responsibility.
