Item 4.     Description of Securities.

Item 5.      Interests of Named Experts and Counsel.

 

Not applicable.

 

 

 

Item 6.     Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

 

The Georgia Business Corporation Code permits, and Registrant’s bylaws require, Registrant to indemnify any director of the Registrant (an “Indemnified Person”) who was or is a party, or is threatened to be made a party, to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit, or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative, or investigative, whether formal or informal, including any action or suit by or in the right of the Registrant (“Proceeding”) because he or she is or was a director, officer, employee, or agent of the Registrant, against any judgment, settlement, penalty, fine, or reasonable expenses (including, but not limited to, attorneys’ fees and disbursements, court costs, and expert witness fees) incurred with respect to the Proceeding. However, Registrant will not indemnify any director who is found liable to Registrant or is subjected to injunctive relief in favor of Registrant for:

 

(1)     any appropriation of any business opportunity of Registrant in violation of the director’s duties;

 

(2)     acts or omissions that involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law;

 

(3)     paying a dividend or approving a stock repurchase in violation of Georgia law; or

 

(4)     any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.

 

Registrant’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation also provide that the indemnification rights contained in the Bylaws shall not be exclusive of any other right which any person may have or hereafter acquire under any provision of the articles of incorporation, bylaw, resolution or agreement specifically or in general terms approved or ratified by the affirmative vote of holders of a majority of the shares entitled to vote thereon.

 

Registrant has purchased and maintains liability insurance to protect its officers and directors against any liability asserted against them or incurred by them as permitted by its Bylaws and Section 14-2-858 of the Georgia Business Corporation Code. The insuring of the directors and officers is permitted whether or not Registrant would have the power to indemnify that director, officer, agent or employee under its articles of incorporation or the terms of the Georgia Business Corporation Code.

 

These indemnification provisions may be sufficiently broad to permit indemnification of Registrant’s officers and directors for liabilities (including reimbursement of expenses incurred) arising under the Securities Act.

 

Item 7.     Exemption from Registration Claimed.

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 8.     Exhibits.

 

The exhibits to this Registration Statement are listed in the Exhibit Index below and incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement.

 

Item 9.     Undertakings.

 

(a)     The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes:

 

(1)     To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:

 

(i)     To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act of 1933;

 

(ii)     To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in the volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than a 20 percent change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective Registration Statement; and

 

2

 

(iii)     To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement;

 

provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (a)(1)(ii) of this section do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the SEC by the registrant pursuant to section 13 or section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that are incorporated by reference in this registration statement.

 

(2)     That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

(3)     To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

 

(b)     The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that is incorporated by reference into this registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

(c)     Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers or controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that, in the opinion of the SEC, such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer, or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

We are familiar with the actions taken by the Company in connection with the Plan.
