On September 11, 2013, the board of directors of the Company approved and adopted the amendment and restatement of the bylaws of the Company (the "Amended and Restated Bylaws"). Article VII, Section 3 of the Amended and Restated Bylaws provides that shares issued by the Company may be issued with or without certificates. This amendment was made in response to the listing requirements of the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation ("NASDAQ").

Additional updates and edits were made to the Amended and Restated Bylaws, relating to, among other things:

(i) requirements and procedures for stockholders to call a special meeting upon the written demand of the holders of not less than 80% of all the votes entitled to be cast on any issue proposed to be considered at the meeting (Article II), whereas the former bylaws of the Company provided for stockholders to call a special meeting upon the request of a majority of the stockholders entitled to vote at such meeting;
(ii) requirements and procedures for stockholders to nominate persons and submit proposals of business at annual meetings (Article II, Section 16), whereas the former bylaws of the Company did not have provisions setting forth the requirements and procedures for stockholders to nominate persons and submit proposals of business at annual meetings;
(iii) conduct of meetings of stockholders, including provision setting forth organization of the meeting of stockholders and appointment of inspectors at the meeting of stockholders, and methods for providing the stockholders list for such meetings (Article II, Sections 8, 13 and 15), whereas the former bylaws of the Company did not have comparable provisions for appointment of inspectors at the meeting of stockholders and organization of the meetings;
(iv) adjournments of annual and special meetings of stockholders, allowing only the chairperson of the meeting of stockholders, annual or special, to adjourn such meeting (Article II, Section 5), whereas the former bylaws of the Company provided that the stockholders entitled to vote at the meeting of stockholders shall have the power to adjourn such meeting (Article V,
Section 6);
(v) election of advisory directors to serve on the board of directors and fixing compensation for such advisory directors (Article III, Section 2), whereas the former bylaws of the Company did not provide for advisory directors;

(vii) broad procedures for establishment and authorities of various committees as may be required by the Company from time to time (Article IV), whereas the former bylaws enumerated specific committees, their composition and specific procedures for their establishment (Article VI);
(viii) alterations, amendments, restatements and repeals of the bylaws will require a majority vote of the board of directors or a vote by the stockholders of the Company representing at least 80% of the shares of the Company entitled to vote in the election of directors, voting as one class (Article IX), whereas the former bylaws of the Company required a vote of at least two-thirds of the directors of the Company or a vote by the stockholders of the Company representing at least 65% of the shares of the Company entitled to vote in the election of directors, voting as one class (Article X); and
(ix) advance payments provisions in the event of indemnification of directors, officers, employees or agents of the Company (Article X, Section 1), whereas the former bylaws of the Company did not have advanced payment provisions.
