Bylaws

ARTICLE I - The Shareholders

SECTION 1.0. Annual Meetings. The annual meeting of the shareholders of the Corporation for the election of directors and for the transaction of such other business as properly may come before the meeting shall be held on the third Monday in April in each year; provided, however, that for a particular year the Board of Directors may designate another date not later than June 30 of that year by resolution adopted by not less than a majority of the directors then in office. Failure to hold an annual meeting of the shareholders at such designated time shall not affect otherwise valid corporate acts or work a forfeiture or dissolution of the Corporation.

SECTION 1.1. Special Meetings. Special meetings of the shareholders may be called at any time by the Board of Directors or the Chairman of the Board of Directors.

SECTION 1.2. Time, Place, and Conduct of Meetings. Each meeting of the shareholders shall be held at such time of day and place, either within or without the State of Indiana, as shall be determined by the Board of Directors. Each adjourned meeting of the shareholders shall be held at such time and place as may be provided in the motion for adjournment. The chairman of each meeting shall have sole authority to decide questions relating to the conduct of that meeting.

SECTION 1.3. Notice of Meetings. The Secretary shall cause a written or printed notice of the place, day and hour and the purpose or purposes of each meeting of the shareholders to be delivered or mailed (which may include by facsimile or other form of electronic communication) at least ten (10) but not more than sixty (60) days prior to the meeting, to each shareholder of record entitled to vote at the meeting, at the shareholder's address as the same appears on the records maintained by the Corporation. Notice of any such shareholders meeting may be waived by any shareholder by delivering a written waiver to the Secretary before or after such meeting. Attendance at any meeting in person or by proxy when the instrument of proxy sets forth in reasonable detail the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called, shall constitute a waiver of notice thereof. Notice of any adjourned meeting of the shareholders of the Corporation shall not be required to be given unless otherwise required by statute.

SECTION 1.4. Quorum. At any meeting of the shareholders a majority of the outstanding shares entitled to vote on a matter at such meeting, represented in person or by proxy, shall constitute a quorum for action on that matter. In the absence of a quorum, the chairman of the meeting or the holders of a majority of the shares entitled to vote present in person or by proxy, or, if no shareholder entitled to vote is present in person or by proxy, any officer entitled to preside at or act as Secretary of such meeting, may adjourn such meeting from time to time, until a quorum shall be present. At any such adjourned meeting at which a quorum may be present any business may be transacted which might have been transacted at the meeting as originally called.

SECTION 1.5. Voting. Except as otherwise provided by statute or by the Articles of Incorporation, at each meeting of the shareholders each holder of shares entitled to vote shall have the right to one vote for each share standing in the shareholder's name on the books of the Corporation on the record date fixed for the meeting under Section 1.7. Each shareholder entitled to vote shall be entitled to vote in person or by proxy executed in writing (which shall include facsimile) or transmitted by electronic submission by the shareholder or a duly authorized attorney in fact. The vote of shareholders approving any matter to which the provisions of Article 9(c) or 9(d) or Article 13 of the Articles of Incorporation or of a statute are applicable shall require the percentage of affirmative vote therein specified. All other matters, except the election of directors, shall require that the votes cast in favor of the matter exceed the votes cast opposing the matter at a meeting at which a quorum is present. In the event that more than one group of shares is entitled to vote as a separate voting group, the vote of each group shall be considered and decided separately.

SECTION 1.6. Voting Lists. The Secretary shall make or cause to be made, after a record date for a meeting of shareholders has been fixed under Section 1.7 and at least five (5) days before such meeting, a complete list of the shareholders entitled to vote at such meeting, arranged in alphabetical order, with the address of each such shareholder and the number of shares so entitled to vote held by each which list shall be on file at the principal office of the Corporation and subject to inspection by any shareholder entitled to vote at the meeting. Such list shall be produced and kept open at the time and place of the meeting and subject to the inspection of any such shareholder during the holding of such meeting or any adjournment. Except as otherwise required by law, such list shall be the only evidence as to who are the shareholders entitled to vote at any meeting of the shareholders. In the event that more than one group of shares is entitled to vote as a separate voting group at the meeting, there shall be a separate listing of the shareholders of each group.

SECTION 1.7. Fixing of Record Date. For the purpose of determining shareholders entitled to notice of or to vote at any meeting of shareholders or any adjournment thereof, or entitled to receive payment of any dividend, or in order to make a determination of shareholders for any other proper purpose, the Board of Directors shall fix in advance a date as the record date for any such determination of shareholders, not more than seventy (70) days prior to the date on which the particular action requiring this determination of shareholders is to be taken. When a determination of shareholders entitled to vote at any meeting of shareholders has been made as provided in this section, the determination shall, to the extent permitted by law, apply to any adjournment thereof.

SECTION 1.8. Notice of Shareholder Business.

  1. At an annual meeting of the shareholders, the only items of business that shall be conducted are those which are proper subjects for action by the shareholders under Indiana law and which have been properly brought before the meeting. To be properly brought before an annual meeting, business must be (i) specified in the notice of meeting (or any supplement thereto) given by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, (ii) otherwise properly brought before the meeting by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, or (iii) otherwise properly brought before the meeting by a shareholder. Except for proposals properly made in accordance with Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the rules and regulations thereunder (as so amended and inclusive of such rules and regulations, the "Exchange Act"), and included in the notice of meeting given by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, the foregoing clause (iii) shall be the exclusive means for a shareholder to propose business to be brought before the meeting. For any item of business (other than nomination of a person for election as a director which is subject to Section 1.9) to be properly brought before an annual meeting by a shareholder, the shareholder proposing the item of business (a "proposing shareholder") must (A) have beneficial ownership of the Corporation's common stock both at the time of giving the notice provided for in this Section 1.8 and at the time of the meeting, (B) be entitled to vote at the meeting, (C) have the legal right and authority to make the proposal for consideration at the meeting, (D) have given a notice which is timely as required by subsection (b) and in proper form as required by subsection (c), and (E) appear at the meeting in person or by a designated representative to present the item of business.
  2. To be timely, a proposing shareholder's notice must be delivered to or mailed and received by the Secretary at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not less than one hundred twenty (120) calendar days nor more than one hundred eighty (180) calendar days in advance of the date of the Corporation's proxy statement released to shareholders in connection with the previous year's annual meeting of shareholders; provided, however, that in the event that no annual meeting was held in the previous year or the date of the annual meeting has been changed by more than thirty (30) days from the date contemplated at the time of the previous year's proxy statement, notice by the proposing shareholder to be timely must be so received not later than the close of business on the later of one hundred twenty (120) calendar days in advance of such annual meeting or ten (10) calendar days following the date on which public disclosure of the date of the meeting is first made. For purposes of this Section 1.8 and Section 1.9, "public disclosure" means disclosure in a press release reported by a national news service or in a document publicly filed by the Corporation with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Sections 13, 14, or 15(d) of the Exchange Act. No adjournment of an annual meeting or announcement thereof shall commence a new time period for the giving of a timely notice as described above.
  3. To be in proper form, a proposing shareholder's notice to the Secretary shall set forth (i) the name and record address of the proposing shareholder(s); (ii) the class and number of the Corporation's shares which are beneficially owned by the proposing shareholder(s); (iii) a brief description of any derivative instrument (as defined in IND. CODE §23-1-20-6.5 as in effect on October 18, 2010) or other agreement, arrangement, or understanding (including any swaps, warrants, short positions, profits, interests, options, hedging transactions, or borrowed or loaned shares) with respect to the Corporation's shares, engaged in, directly or indirectly by the proposing shareholder(s), where the purpose or effect of such instrument, agreement, arrangement or understanding is to increase or decrease such shareholders' ability to share in the profits derived from any increase in the value of the Corporation's shares, mitigate economic exposure to changes in value of the shares, and/or increase or decrease the voting power of such shareholder(s); and (iv) as to each item of business being proposed (A) a brief description of the business to be brought before the annual meeting; (B) the reasons for conducting such business at the annual meeting; (C) the text of the proposal or business (including the text of any resolutions proposed for consideration); (D) any material interest of the proposing shareholder(s) in such business; (E) a brief description of all agreements, arrangements or understandings between or among the proposing shareholder(s) or between or among any proposing shareholder and any other person or entity in connection with such business; (F) a representation whether the proposing shareholder intends to deliver a proxy statement and/or form of proxy to holders of at least the percentage of the Corporation's outstanding shares required to approve the proposal and/or otherwise to solicit proxies from shareholders in support of the proposal; and (G) any other information relating to each such person that would be required to be disclosed in a proxy statement or other filing required to be made in connection with the solicitation of proxies by each such person with respect to the proposed business to be brought by each such person before the annual meeting pursuant to Section 14 of the Exchange Act, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. For purposes of this Section 1.8 and Section 1.9, the term "beneficial ownership" shall have the meaning specified in IND. CODE §23-1-20-3.5 as in effect on October 18, 2010;
  4. A proposing shareholder shall further update and supplement such notice, if necessary, so that the information provided or required to be provided in the notice shall be true, correct and complete in all material respects (i) as of the record date for the meeting and (ii) as of the date that is ten (10) business days prior to the meeting or any adjournment thereof. Such updates shall be delivered to or mailed and received by the Secretary at the principal executive offices of the Corporation (A) in the case of the update required under subsection (i), not later than five (5) business days after the record date, and (B) in the case of the update required under subsection (ii), not later than seven (7) business days prior to the meeting or any adjournment thereof.
  5. No business shall be conducted at any annual meeting of shareholders except in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 1.8. The chairman of an annual meeting shall, if the facts warrant, determine and declare to the meeting that business was not properly brought before the meeting in accordance with the provisions of this Section 1.8, and if the chairman should so determine, he or she shall so declare to the meeting any such business not properly brought before the meeting shall not be transacted, notwithstanding that proxies may have been solicited in respect of such business.
  6. The requirements of this Section 1.8 shall apply to any item of business to be brought before an annual meeting of shareholders (other than the election of directors and any proposal properly made pursuant to Rule 14a-8 of the Exchange Act) regardless of whether the business is presented to shareholders directly at the meeting or by means of an independently financed proxy solicitation. The requirements of this Section 1.8 are included to provide the Corporation notice of a shareholder's intention to bring business before an annual meeting and shall not be construed as imposing upon any shareholder the requirement to seek approval from the Corporation as a condition precedent to bringing any such business before an annual meeting.
  7. At any special meeting of the shareholders, only such business shall be conducted as shall have been brought before the meeting by or at the direction of the Board of Directors or the Chairman of the Board of Directors.


SECTION 1.9. Notice of Shareholder Nominees.

  1. Only persons who are nominated by or at the direction of the Board of Directors or by shareholders in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 1.9 shall be eligible for election as Directors.

No adjournment of an annual meeting or announcement thereof shall commence a new time period for the giving of a timely notice as described above. If the notice relates to a special meeting of shareholders, it must be delivered to or mailed and received by the Secretary of the Corporation at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not less than ninety (90) calendar days in advance of the date of the special meeting, or, if later, the tenth (10th) calendar day after public disclosure of the date of the special meeting is made.

  4. A nominating shareholder shall further update and supplement such notice, if necessary, so that the information provided or required to be provided in the notice shall be true, correct and complete in all material respects (i) as of the record date for the meeting and (ii) as of the date that is ten (10) business days prior to the meeting or any adjournment thereof.

  6. The Corporation may require any proposed nominee to furnish such other information (i) as may reasonably be required by the Corporation to determine the eligibility of such proposed nominee to serve as an independent director of the Corporation or (ii) that could be material to a reasonable shareholder's understanding of the independence or lack of independence of such proposed nominee.

ARTICLE II - Board of Directors

SECTION 2.0. General Powers. The property, affairs and business of the Corporation shall be managed under the direction of the Board of Directors.

SECTION 2.1. Number and Qualifications. The number of directors which shall constitute the whole Board of Directors shall be sixteen (16), which number may be either increased or diminished by resolution adopted by not less than a majority of the directors then in office; provided that the number may not be diminished below nine (9) and no reduction in number shall have the effect of shortening the term of any incumbent director. In the event that the holders of shares of preferred stock become entitled to elect two directors, the number of directors and the minimum number of directors shall be increased by two. Neither ownership of stock of the Corporation nor residence in the State of Indiana shall be required as a qualification for a director.

SECTION 2.2. Classes of Directors and Terms. The directors shall be divided into three classes as nearly equal in number as possible. Except as provided in Article 9 of the Articles of Incorporation fixing one, two, and three year terms for the initial classified board, each class of directors shall be elected for a term of three (3) years. In the event of vacancy, either by death, resignation, or removal of a director, or by reason of an increase in the number of directors, each replacement or new director shall serve for the balance of the term of the class of the director he or she succeeds or, in the event of an increase in the number of directors, of the class to which he or she is assigned. All directors elected for a term shall continue in office until the election and qualification of their respective successors, their death, their resignation in accordance with Section 2.6, their removal in accordance with Section 2.7, or if there has been a reduction in the number of directors and no successor is to be elected, until the end of the term. The classes and terms of the directors shall not be governed by IND. CODE §23-1-33-6(c).

SECTION 2.3. Election of Directors. Subject to the rights of the holders of preferred stock to elect any directors voting separately as a class or series, at each annual meeting of shareholders, the directors to be elected at the meeting shall be chosen by the majority of the votes cast by the holders of shares entitled to vote in the election at the meeting, provided a quorum is present; provided, however, that if the number of nominees exceeds the number of directors to be elected, then directors shall be elected by the vote of a plurality of the votes cast by the holders of shares entitled to vote, provided a quorum is present. For purposes of this Section 2.3, a "majority of votes cast" shall mean that the number of votes cast "for" a director's election exceeds the number of votes cast "against" that director's election. If a nominee fails to receive the required vote and is an incumbent director, the director shall promptly tender his or her resignation to the Board of Directors, subject to acceptance by the Board of Directors. The Directors and Corporate Governance Committee will make a recommendation to the Board of Directors whether to accept or reject the tendered resignation, or whether other action should be taken. The Board of Directors will act on the tendered resignation, taking into account the Directors and Corporate Governance Committee's recommendation, and publicly disclose (by a press release, a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or other broadly disseminated means of communication) its decision regarding the tendered resignation and the rationale behind the decision within ninety (90) days from the date of the certification of the election results. The Directors and Corporate Governance Committee in making its recommendation and the Board of Directors in making its decision may each consider any factors or other information that they consider appropriate and relevant. The director who tenders his or her resignation will not participate in the recommendation of the Directors and Corporate Governance Committee or the decision of the Board of Directors with respect to his or her resignation. If an incumbent director's resignation is not accepted by the Board of Directors, such director shall continue to serve until the next annual meeting of shareholders and until his or her successor is duly elected, or his or her earlier resignation or removal. If a director's resignation is accepted by the Board of Directors, or if a nominee fails to receive the required vote and the nominee is not an incumbent director, then the Board of Directors may fill the resulting vacancy pursuant to the provisions of Article 9 of the Amended Articles of Incorporation or may decrease the size of the Board of Directors pursuant to the provisions of Article 9 of the Amended Articles of Incorporation and Section 2.2.

The election of directors by the shareholders shall be by written ballot if directed by the chairman of the meeting or if the number of nominees exceeds the number of directors to be elected.

Any vacancy on the Board of Directors shall be filled by the affirmative vote of a majority of the remaining directors.

If the holders of preferred stock are entitled to elect any directors voting separately as a class or series, those directors shall be elected by a plurality of the votes cast by the holders of shares of preferred stock entitled to vote in the election at the meeting, provided a quorum of the holders of shares of preferred stock is present.

SECTION 2.4. Meetings of Directors.
 

  1. Annual Meeting. Unless otherwise provided by resolution of the Board of Directors, the annual meeting of the Board of Directors shall be held at the place of and immediately following the annual meeting of shareholders, for the purpose of organization, the election of officers and the transaction of such other business as properly may come before the meeting. No notice of the meeting need be given, except in the case an amendment to the Bylaws is to be considered.
  2. Regular Meetings. The Board of Directors by resolution may provide for the holding of regular meetings and may fix the times and places (within or outside the State of Indiana) at which those meetings shall be held. Notice of regular meetings need not be given except when an amendment to the Bylaws is to be considered. Whenever the time or place of regular meetings shall be fixed or changed, notice of this action shall be mailed promptly to each director not present when the action was taken, addressed to the director at his or her residence or usual place of business.
  3. Special Meetings. Special meetings of the Board of Directors may be called by the Chairman of the Board and shall be called by the Secretary at the request of any three (3) directors. Except as otherwise required by statute, notice of each special meeting shall be mailed to each director at his or her residence or usual place of business at least three (3) days before the day on which the meeting is to be held, or shall be sent to the director at such place by facsimile transmission or other form of electronic communication or personally delivered, not later than the day before the day on which the meeting is to be held. The notice shall state the time and place (which may be within or outside the State of Indiana) of the meeting but, unless otherwise required by statute, the Articles of Incorporation or the Bylaws, need not state the purposes thereof.

Notice of any meeting need not be given to any director, however, who shall attend the meeting, or who shall waive notice thereof, before, at the time of, or after the meeting, in a writing signed by the director and delivered to the Corporation. No notice need be given of any meeting at which every member of the Board of Directors shall be present.


SECTION 2.5. Quorum and Manner of Acting. A majority of the actual number of directors established pursuant to Section 2.1, from time to time, shall be necessary to constitute a quorum for the transaction of any business except the filling of vacancies on the Board of Directors under Section 2.3 or voting on a conflict of interest transaction under Section 2.12. The act of a majority of the directors present at a meeting at which a quorum is present, shall be the act of the Board of Directors, unless the act of a greater number is required by statute, by the Articles of Incorporation, or by the Bylaws. Under the provisions of Article 13 of the Articles of Incorporation, certain actions by the Board of Directors therein specified require not only approval by the Board of Directors, but also approval by a majority of the Continuing Directors, as therein defined. Any or all directors may participate in a meeting of the Board of Directors by means of a conference telephone or similar communications equipment by which all persons participating in the meeting may simultaneously hear each other, and participation in this manner shall constitute presence in person at the meeting. In the absence of a quorum, a majority of the directors present may adjourn the meeting from time to time until a quorum shall be present. No notice of any adjourned meeting need be given.

SECTION 2.6. Resignations. Any director may resign at any time by giving written notice of resignation to the Board of Directors, the Chairman of the Board, the Chief Executive Officer, or the Secretary. Unless otherwise specified in the written notice, the resignation shall take effect upon receipt thereof and unless otherwise specified in it, the acceptance of the resignation shall not be necessary to make it effective. In addition, a director who fails to receive a majority of the votes cast at an annual meeting of shareholders at which the number of nominees does not exceed the number of directors to be elected shall tender his or her resignation subject to acceptance in accordance with Section 2.3.

SECTION 2.7. Removal of Directors. Any director, other than a director elected by holders of preferred stock voting as a class, may be removed from office at any time but only for cause and only upon the affirmative vote of at least eighty (80) percent of the votes entitled to be cast by holders of all of the outstanding shares of Voting Stock (as defined in Article 13 of the Articles of Incorporation), voting together as a single class.

SECTION 2.8. Action without a Meeting. Any action required or permitted to be taken at any meeting of the Board of Directors or of any committee thereof may be taken without a meeting, if taken by all members of the Board of Directors or such committee, as the case may be, evidenced by a written consent signed by all such members and effective on the date, either prior or subsequent to the date of the consent, specified in the written consent, or if no effective date is specified in the written consent, the date on which the consent is filed with the minutes of proceedings of the Board of Directors or committee.

SECTION 2.9. Attendance and Failure to Object. A director, who is present at a meeting of the Board of Directors, at which action on any corporate matter is taken, shall be presumed to have assented to the action taken, unless (a) the director's dissent shall be entered in the minutes of the meeting, (b) the director shall file a written dissent to such action with the Secretary of the meeting before adjournment thereof, or (c) the director shall forward such dissent by registered mail to the Secretary immediately after adjournment of the meeting. The right of dissent provided for by the preceding sentence shall not be available, in respect of any matter acted upon at any meeting, to a director who voted in favor of such action.

SECTION 2.10. Special Standing Committees. The Board of Directors, by resolution adopted by a majority of the actual number of directors elected and qualified, may designate from among its members one or more committees. Such committees shall have those powers of the Board of Directors which may by law be delegated to such committees and are specified by resolution of the Board of Directors or by committee charters approved by the Board of Directors.

SECTION 2.11. Appointment of Auditors. The Board of Directors or the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors, prior to each annual meeting of shareholders, shall appoint a firm of independent public accountants as auditors of the Corporation. Such appointment shall be submitted to the shareholders for ratification at the annual meeting next following such appointment. Should the shareholders fail to ratify the appointment of any firm as auditors of the Corporation, or should the Board of Directors or Audit Committee for any reason determine that any such appointment be terminated, the Board of Directors or Audit Committee shall appoint another firm of independent public accountants to act as auditors of the Corporation and such appointment shall be submitted to the shareholders for ratification at the annual or special shareholders meeting next following such appointment.

SECTION 2.12. Transactions with Corporation. No transactions with the Corporation in which one or more of its directors has a direct or indirect interest shall be either void or voidable solely because of such interest if any one of the following is true:

  1. the material facts of the transaction and the director's interest are disclosed or known to the Board of Directors or committee which authorizes, approves, or ratifies the transaction by the affirmative vote or consent of a majority of the directors (or committee members) who have no direct or indirect interest in the transaction and, in any event, of at least two directors (or committee members);
  2. the material facts of the transaction and the director's interest are disclosed or known to the shareholders entitled to vote and they authorize, approve or ratify such transaction by vote; or
  3. the transaction is fair to the Corporation.


If a majority of the directors or committee members who have no direct or indirect interest in the transaction vote to authorize, approve, or ratify the transaction, a quorum is present for purposes of taking action under subsection (a) of this section. The presence of, or a vote cast by, a director with a direct or indirect interest in the transaction does not affect the validity of any actions taken under subsection (a) of this section.

SECTION 2.13. Compensation of Directors. The Board of Directors is empowered and authorized to fix and determine the compensation of directors and additional compensation for such additional services any of such directors may perform for the Corporation.

ARTICLE III - Officers

SECTION 3.0. Officers, General Authority and Duties. The officers of the Corporation shall be a Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer, a President, two (2) or more Vice Presidents, a Secretary, a Chief Financial Officer, a Treasurer, a Chief Accounting Officer, and such other officers as may be elected or appointed in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.2. One or more of the Vice Presidents may be designated by the Board to serve as Executive Vice Presidents, Senior Vice Presidents, or Group Vice Presidents. Any two (2) or more offices may be held by the same person. All officers and agents of the Corporation, as between themselves and the Corporation, shall have such authority and perform such duties in the management of the Corporation as may be provided in the Bylaws or as may be determined by resolution of the Board of Directors not inconsistent with the Bylaws.

SECTION 3.1. Election, Term of Office, Qualifications. Each officer (except such officers as may be appointed in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.2) shall be elected by the Board of Directors at each annual meeting. Each such officer (whether elected at an annual meeting of the Board of Directors or to fill a vacancy or otherwise) shall hold office until the officer's successor is chosen and qualified, or until death, or until the officer shall resign in the manner provided in Section 3.3 or be removed in the manner provided in Section 3.4. The Chairman of the Board and the Chief Executive Officer shall be members of the Board of Directors. Any other officer may but need not be a director of the Corporation. Election or appointment of an officer or agent shall not of itself create contract rights.

SECTION 3.2. Other Officers, Election or Appointment.

In furtherance, but not in limitation, of the foregoing provisions, the following procedures, presumptions and remedies shall apply with respect to and the right to indemnification and advancement of expenses under this Article.

  1. To obtain indemnification under this Article, an Eligible Person shall submit to the Secretary of the Corporation a written request, including such documentation and information as is reasonably available to the Eligible Person and reasonably necessary to determine whether and to what extent the Eligible Person is entitled to indemnification (the "Supporting Documentation"). The determination of the Eligible Person's entitlement to indemnification shall be made not later than sixty (60) days after receipt by the Corporation of the written request together with the Supporting Documentation. The Secretary of the Corporation shall, promptly upon receipt of such request, advise the Board in writing of the Eligible Person's request.
  2. An Eligible Person's entitlement to indemnification under this Article shall be determined in one of the following methods, such method to be selected by the Board of Directors, regardless of whether there are any Disinterested Directors (as hereinafter defined): (i) by a majority vote of the Disinterested Directors, if they constitute a quorum of the Board; (ii) by a written opinion of Special Counsel (as hereinafter defined) if (A) a Change in Control shall have occurred and the Eligible Person so requests or (B) a quorum of the Board consisting of Disinterested Directors is not obtainable or, even if obtainable, a majority of such Disinterested Directors so directs; (iii) by the shareholders of the Corporation (but only if a majority of the Disinterested Directors, if they constitute a quorum of the Board, presents the issue of entitlement to the shareholders for their determination); or (iv) as provided in subsection (d).
  3. In the event the determination of entitlement is to be made by Special Counsel, a majority of the Disinterested Directors shall select the Special Counsel, but only Special Counsel to which the Eligible Person does not reasonably object; provided, however, that if a Change in Control shall have occurred, the Eligible Person shall select such Special Counsel, but only Special Counsel to which a majority of the Disinterested Directors does not reasonably object.
  4. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Article, if a Change in Control shall have occurred, the Eligible Person shall be presumed to be entitled to indemnification (with respect to actions or failures to act occurring prior to such Change in Control) upon submission of a request for indemnification together with the Supporting Documentation in accordance with subsection (a), and thereafter the Corporation shall have the burden of proof to overcome that presumption in reaching a contrary determination. In any event, if the person or persons empowered under subsection (c) to determine entitlement shall not have been appointed or shall not have made a determination within sixty (60) days after receipt by the Corporation of the request therefor together with the Supporting Documentation, the Eligible Person shall be deemed to be, and shall be, entitled to indemnification and advancement of expenses unless (i) the Eligible Person misrepresented or failed to disclose a material fact in making the request for indemnification or in the Supporting Documentation or (ii) such indemnification is prohibited by law. The termination of any Proceeding or of any claim, issue or matter therein, by judgment, order, settlement or conviction, or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent, shall not, of itself, adversely affect the right of an Eligible Person to indemnification or create a presumption that the Eligible Person did not act in good faith and in a manner which the Eligible Person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Corporation and, with respect to any criminal proceeding, that the Eligible Person had reasonable cause to believe that his or her conduct was unlawful.
  5. In the event that a determination is made that the Eligible Person is not entitled to indemnification (i) the Eligible Person shall be entitled to seek an adjudication of his or her entitlement to such indemnification either, at the Eligible Person's sole option, in (A) an appropriate court of the state of Indiana or any other court of competent jurisdiction or (B) an arbitration to be conducted in Indianapolis, Indiana, by a single arbitrator pursuant to the rules of the American Arbitration Association; (ii) in any such judicial proceeding or arbitration the Eligible Person shall not be prejudiced by reason of the prior determination pursuant to this Section 6.4; and (iii) if a Change in Control shall have occurred, in any such judicial proceeding or arbitration the Corporation shall have the burden of proving that the Eligible Person is not entitled to indemnification but only with respect to actions or failures to act occurring prior to such Change in Control.
  6. If a determination shall have been made or deemed to have been made that the Eligible Person is entitled to indemnification, the Corporation shall be obligated to pay the amounts incurred by the Eligible Person within ten (10) days after such determination has been made or deemed to have been made and shall be conclusively bound by such determination unless (i) the Eligible Person misrepresented or failed to disclose a material fact in making the request for indemnification or in the Supporting Documentation or (ii) such indemnification is prohibited by law. In the event that (A) any advancement of expenses is not timely made pursuant to Section 6.3 or (B) payment of indemnification is not made within ten (10) days after a determination of entitlement to indemnification has been made, the Eligible Person shall be entitled to seek judicial enforcement of the Corporation's obligation, to pay to the Eligible Person such advancement of expenses or indemnification. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Corporation may bring an action, in an appropriate court in the State of Indiana or any other court of competent jurisdiction, contesting the right of the Eligible Person to receive indemnification hereunder due to the occurrence of an event described in clause (i) or (ii) of this subsection (f) (a "Disqualifying Event"); provided, however, that in any such action the Corporation shall have the burden of proving the occurrence of such Disqualifying Event.
  7. The Corporation shall be precluded from asserting in any judicial proceeding or arbitration commenced pursuant to this Section 6.4 that the procedures and presumptions of this Article are not valid, binding and enforceable and shall stipulate in any such court or before any such arbitrator that the Corporation is bound by the provisions of this Article.
  8. In the event that the Eligible Person seeks a judicial adjudication of or an award in arbitration to enforce his or her rights under, or to recover damages for breach of this Article, the Eligible Person shall be entitled to recover from the Corporation, and shall be indemnified by the Corporation, against, any expenses actually and reasonably incurred by the Eligible Person in connection with such adjudication or arbitration if the Eligible Person prevails in such adjudication or arbitration. If it shall be determined in such judicial adjudication or arbitration that the Eligible Person is entitled to receive part but not all of the indemnification or advancement of expenses sought, the expenses incurred by the Eligible Person in connection with such judicial adjudication or arbitration shall be prorated accordingly.
