As is the case with the Company's previous form of indemnification agreement, the Indemnification Agreement requires the Company to indemnify the counterparty, to the fullest extent permitted by law, for certain expenses, including attorneys' fees, judgments, penalties, fines and settlement amounts actually and reasonably incurred in any action or proceeding arising out of such party's status as a service provider to the Company or one of its subsidiaries or any other company or enterprise to which service is provided at the Company's request.

The foregoing summary and description of the provisions of the Amended and Restated Bylaws does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amended and Restated Bylaws, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 with this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
