The termination of any proceeding by judgment, order, settlement, conviction or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent shall not, of itself, create a presumption that the person did not act in good faith and in a manner which the person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Corporation, or that the person had reasonable cause to believe that the persons’ conduct was unlawful.

(c) The Corporation shall indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action by or in the right of the Corporation to procure a judgment in its favor by reason of the fact that the person is or was an agent of the Corporation against expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by the person in connection with the defense or settlement of such action if the person acted in good faith and in a manner the person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Corporation.

(d) To the extent that an agent has been successful on the merits or otherwise in defense of proceeding referred to in subsection (b) or (c) of this Article, or in defense of any claim, issue or matter therein, the agent shall be indemnified by the Corporation against expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by the agent in connection therewith.

(e) Any indemnification under subsection (b) or (c) of this Article shall be made by the Corporation upon a determination that indemnification of the agent is proper in the circumstances because the agent has met the applicable standard of conduct set forth in subsection (b) or (c) of this Article.

(f) Expenses incurred in defending any proceeding shall be paid by the Corporation in advance of the final disposition of the proceeding upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of the agent to repay such amount unless it shall ultimately be determined that the agent is entitled to be indemnified by the Corporation as authorized in this Article.

(g) The indemnification provided by this Article is not exclusive of any other rights to which those indemnified may be entitled under any Bylaw, agreement, vote of the Members or disinterested Directors, or otherwise, both as to action in a person’s official capacity and as to action in another capacity while holding office, and shall continue as to a person who has ceased to be an agent and shall inure to the benefit of the heirs and personal representatives of such a person.

Any such insurance may be procured from any insurance company designated by the Board of Directors, including any insurance company in which the Corporation shall have an equity or other interest through stock ownership or otherwise.

(1) This Article does not apply to any proceeding against any trustee, investment manager or other fiduciary of an employee benefit plan in such person’s capacity, though such person may also be an agent of the employer corporation as defined in subsection (a) of the Article. Nothing contained in this Article shall limit any right to indemnification to which such a trustee, investment manager or other fiduciary may be entitled by contract or otherwise.
