Issuance of Shares from Articles of Amendment
Pursuant to the provisions of Section 79-4-10.20 of the Mississippi Business Corporation Act and in accordance with the Bylaws of Renasant Corporation, as amended (the Bylaws), the Board of Directors hereby adopts the following Articles of Amendment to the Bylaws of Renasant Corporation:
Issuance of Shares. The shares of the capital stock of the corporation may be certificated or uncertificated. If shares are certificated, or at the request of a holder of uncertificated shares, the corporation shall cause to be issued to the holder of such shares one or more certificates in such form, not inconsistent with that required by the laws of the State of Mississippi and the corporations articles of incorporation, as shall be approved by the board of directors. Each such certificate shall be signed by the president or a vice president and by the secretary or an assistant secretary, provided, however, that any or all of the signatures on the certificate may be facsimile. Each such certificate shall specify the number of shares represented by the certificate. If the stock of the corporation shall be divided into one or more classes or series, then the class and series of such shares, and the powers, the designations, the preferences, and the relative, participating, optional or other special rights of each class or series of such shares and the qualifications, limitations or restrictions of such preferences and/or rights shall be set forth in full or summarized on the face or back of the certificate (if any) that the corporation may issue to represent such class or series of shares; provided, however, that in lieu of the foregoing, there may be set forth on the face or back of such certificate (if any) that the corporation will furnish such information without charge to each stockholder who so requests. The stock record books and the blank stock certificate books shall be kept by the secretary or at the office of such transfer agent or agents as the board of directors may from time to time determine. If any officer, transfer agent or registrar who shall have signed or whose facsimile signature or signatures shall have been placed upon any such certificate or certificates shall have ceased to be such officer, transfer agent or registrar before such certificate is issued by the corporation, such certificate may nevertheless be issued by the corporation with the same effect as if such person were such officer, transfer agent or registrar on the date of issue. The stock certificates shall be consecutively numbered and shall be entered in the books of the corporation as they are issued and shall exhibit the holders name and number of shares.
