  2. Section 5.19 of the Rights Plan will be deleted and replaced with the following:

    "All actions, calculations, interpretations and determinations (including all omissions with respect to the foregoing) which are done, made or approved by the Directors, acting in good faith for the purposes hereof, (a) may be relied on by the Rights Agent, and (b) shall not subject the Directors to any liability to the holders of the Rights or to any other parties."
