The Indemnification Agreement supplements indemnification provisions already in the Company’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation and Amended and Restated Bylaws and supersedes any prior indemnification agreements entered into between the Company and its directors or executive officers. Under the Indemnification Agreement, the Company agrees to indemnify directors and executive officers to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law (including the Delaware General Corporation Law), including indemnification and/or advancement of expenses incurred or reasonably expected to be incurred in connection with participating in any action or proceeding, including any action or proceeding by or in right of the Company, arising out of the person’s services as a director or executive officer.
