INDEMNIFICATION OF OFFICERS, DIRECTORS,
EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS; INSURANCE

Section 7.01.    Indemnity for Claims Not in Name of Corporation.
(a)    The Corporation must indemnify, to the maximum extent permitted by the law, any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed claim, action, suit, arbitration, investigation or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, except an action by or in the right of the Corporation, by reason of the fact that such person is or was (i) a director, officer, employee or agent of the Corporation, (ii) serving at the request of the Corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, or (iii) serving as a fiduciary under or with respect to any employee benefit plan (as defined in Section 3(3) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974) of the Corporation or any its subsidiaries, against all losses, claims, damages, liabilities, fees, expenses, including attorneys’ fees, judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with such claim, action, suit arbitration, investigation or proceeding, if such person acted in good faith and in a manner which such person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action, suit or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe such conduct was unlawful. The Corporation may not indemnify any such person if it is proven that such person’s act, or failure to act, constituted a breach of such person’s fiduciary duties as a director or officer, and such breach of those duties involved intentional misconduct, fraud or a knowing violation of law, making such person liable pursuant to Section 78.138 of the Nevada Revised Statutes.     
(b)    The termination of any claim, action, suit, arbitration, investigation or proceeding by judgment, order, settlement, conviction, or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent, shall not, of itself, create a presumption that the person is liable pursuant to Section 78.138 of the Nevada Revised Statutes or did not act in good faith and in a manner which such person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Corporation, or that, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, such person had reasonable cause to believe that such conduct was unlawful.
Section 7.02.    Indemnity for Claims in Name of Corporation.
(a)    Subject to Subsection 7.02(b) below, the Corporation must indemnify, to the maximum extent permitted by the law, any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed claim, action, suit or proceeding by or in the right of the Corporation to procure a judgment in its favor by reason of the fact that such person is or was (i) a director, officer, employee or agent of the Corporation, (ii) serving at the request of the Corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, or (iii) serving as a fiduciary under or with respect to any employee benefit plan of the Corporation or any its subsidiaries, against all losses, claims, damages, liabilities,



fees, expenses, including amounts paid in settlement and attorneys’ fees, actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with the defense or settlement of such claim, action, suit or proceeding, if such person acted in good faith and in a manner which such person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Corporation. The Corporation may not indemnify any such person if it is proven that such person’s act, or failure to act, constituted a breach of such person’s fiduciary duties as a director or officer, and such breach of those duties involved intentional misconduct, fraud or a knowing violation of law, making such person liable pursuant to Section 78.138 of the Nevada Revised Statutes.
(b)    Indemnification may not be made for any claim, issue or matter as to which such person has been adjudged by a court of competent jurisdiction, after exhaustion of all appeals therefrom, to be liable to the Corporation or for amounts paid in settlement to the Corporation, unless and only to the extent that the court in which such action or suit was brought or other court of competent jurisdiction determines upon application that, despite the adjudication of liability but in view of all the circumstances of the case, such person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for such expenses as the court deems proper.
Section 7.03.    Success on Merits. To the extent that a director, officer, employee or agent of the Corporation has been successful on the merits or otherwise in defense of any action, suit or proceeding referred to in sections 7.01 and 7.02, or in defense of any claim, issue or matter therein, such person shall be indemnified by the Corporation against expenses, including attorneys’ fees, actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection therewith.

Section 7.05.    Other Sources of Indemnity. The indemnification provided by this Article:
(a)    does not exclude any other rights to which a person seeking indemnification may be entitled under the Articles of Incorporation, these Bylaws, or any agreement, vote of Stockholders or disinterested directors or otherwise, for either an action in an official capacity or an action in another capacity while holding such office; and
(b)    shall continue as to a person who has ceased to be a director, officer, fiduciary, employee or agent and shall inure to the benefit of the heirs, executors and administrators of such a person.
Section 7.06.    Insurance. The Corporation may purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the Corporation, is or was serving at the request of the Corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another



corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise or is or was serving as a fiduciary under or with respect to any employee benefit plan of the Corporation or any of its subsidiaries, against any liability asserted against such person and expenses incurred by such person in any such capacity, or arising out of such person’s status as such, whether or not the Corporation would have the authority to indemnify such person against such liability and expenses under the provisions of this Article or otherwise.
Section 7.07.    Effect of Amendment. No amendment, modification or repeal of this Article or any provision hereof shall in any manner terminate, reduce or impair the right of any person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the Corporation, is or was serving at the request of the Corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise or is or was serving as a fiduciary under or with respect to any employee benefit plan of the Corporation or any of its subsidiaries, to be indemnified by the Corporation, nor the obligation of the Corporation to indemnify any such person under and in accordance with the provisions of this Article 7 as in effect immediately prior to such amendment, modification or repeal with respect to claims arising, in whole or in part, from a state of facts existing on the date of, or relating to matters occurring prior to, such amendment, modification or repeal, regardless of when such claims may arise or be asserted.
