The notice must include the information specified in the By-Laws.

The By-Laws add an advance notice procedure for shareholders to nominate one or more directors for election at an annual meeting of shareholders. Any shareholder wishing to make a nomination at an annual meeting of shareholders must deliver to the Company's Secretary a written notice of the shareholder's intention to do so. To be timely, the shareholder's notice must be delivered to or mailed and received by the Company not later than the 90th day nor earlier than the 120th day prior to the anniversary date of the preceding annual meeting, except that if the annual meeting is not within 30 days before or after the anniversary of the previous year's annual meeting, the Company must receive the notice by the 10th day after public announcement of the date of the meeting. The notice must include the information specified in the By-Laws.
