NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
KIMBERLY-CLARK CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

The unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a basis
consistent with that used in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended
December 31, 2002, and include all normal recurring adjustments necessary to
present fairly the condensed consolidated balance sheet, consolidated income
statement and condensed consolidated cash flow statement for the periods
indicated.

1.   In December 2002, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued
     Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") 148, Accounting for
     Stock-Based Compensation and Disclosure, which amends SFAS 123, Accounting
     for Stock-Based Compensation, and provides alternative methods of
     transition for a voluntary change to the fair value-based method of
     accounting for stock-based compensation.  The Corporation currently plans
     to continue to account for stock-based compensation using the intrinsic-
     value method permitted by Accounting Principles Board Opinion 25,
     Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees.  No employee compensation
     for stock options has been charged to earnings because the exercise prices
     of all stock options granted have been equal to the market value of the
     Corporation's common stock at the date of grant.  The following presents
     information about net income and earnings per share as if the Corporation
     had applied the fair value expense recognition requirements of SFAS 123 to
     all employee stock options granted.

Commentary:

Consolidated net sales for the second quarter of 2003 were 4.0 percent higher
than in 2002, primarily driven by an improvement of about 4 percent in currency
exchange rates. Sales volumes were essentially flat, reflecting
weaker-than-expected growth in a number of key categories in North America,
particularly diapers and consumer tissue products. Net selling prices were
approximately the same as last year, as price increases in certain geographies
were offset by continued high levels of competitive promotional spending
overall.

o    Personal care net sales were flat in the second quarter. Favorable
     currency effects of about 3 percent and slightly higher net selling prices
     were offset by lower sales volumes. Sales volumes were affected by intense
     competition in the diaper category in a number of key markets as well as a
     slowdown in category growth in North America.

     In North America, personal care sales volumes decreased approximately 
     4 percent versus the second quarter of 2002 despite record shipments of
     Pull-Ups training pants, GoodNites youth pants and Huggies Little Swimmers
     swimpants. Although sales volumes of Huggies diapers were lower than last
     year, the brand's market share improved sequentially from the first quarter
     to the second quarter of 2003. Net selling prices of personal care products
     in North America were similar to last year. Personal care sales in Europe
     increased more than 11 percent primarily due to favorable currency rates,
     partially offset by lower sales volumes for diaper products. In Asia,
     personal care net sales rose nearly 11 percent, highlighted by strong
     double-digit growth in Australia from a combination of favorable currency
     effects and higher sales volumes. Sales volumes were higher for a majority
     of the Corporation's operations in the region. Finally, in Latin America,
     sales decreased about 15 percent, as selling price increases were not
     sufficient to offset weakness in sales volumes and unfavorable currency
     effects throughout most of the region.

o    Net sales of consumer tissue products increased 5.9 percent from 2002,
     primarily driven by favorable currency effects in Europe and Australia.
     Overall sales volumes increased nearly 1 percent. Net selling prices were
     about the same as last year, as response to competitive promotional
     activity in North America and Europe negated list price increases mainly in
     those geographies.


<PAGE>

     In North America, sales volumes of tissue products rose 1 percent. Sales
     volume growth remained solid for Cottonelle and Scott bathroom tissue
     despite below-trend consumer demand for the overall category. Net selling
     prices were down almost 1 percent due to increases in competitive promotion
     spending. In Europe, net sales advanced about 20 percent primarily as a
     result of favorable currency exchange rates for the euro and the British
     pound. Sales volumes rose about 3 percent and net selling prices rose more
     than 1 percent. Meanwhile, consumer tissue net sales were more than 
     5 percent higher in Asia, as sales volume increases in Korea and favorable
     currency effects in Australia were partially offset by continued weakness
     in Taiwan. In Latin America, net sales declined almost 1 percent, as
     unfavorable currency effects more than offset sales volume increases of
     nearly 4 percent.

o    Net sales of business-to-business products increased 7.7 percent in the
     quarter, boosted by sales volume growth of about 3 percent and a more than
     4 percent benefit from favorable currency effects. The Corporation's global
     health care business posted record quarterly net sales. Sales volumes for
     health care products rose almost 10 percent, with strong growth outside
     North America and substantially higher sales of face masks and gloves.
     Sales volumes for the professional businesses increased approximately 
     4 percent in North America and nearly 10 percent in Asia, but were flat in
     Europe. Overall segment selling prices declined about 1 percent compared
     with the second quarter of last year.

Commentary:

Consolidated operating profit in the second quarter of 2003 declined 2.8 percent
from the prior year. The Corporation made further progress in its efforts to
reduce costs in 2003, as it achieved savings of nearly $50 million in the
quarter, up from more than $40 million in the first quarter. These savings are
net of higher resin costs. The cost reductions, however, were more than offset
by an increase in pension expense of about $35 million and higher fiber and
energy costs of approximately $40 million.

Each of the three business segments incurred more than $10 million of the
increased pension expense.

Included in the second quarter of 2002 were charges for business improvement
programs of $15.1 million primarily related to the previously announced plans to
streamline manufacturing operations in Latin America and to consolidate
administrative functions in Europe. The major components of the charge were
severance costs of approximately $9.7 million and additional depreciation of
$2.3 million. These costs were included in the business segments as follows:
personal care $4.6 million; consumer tissue $7.3 million; and
business-to-business $3.2 million. These charges were included in the
consolidated income statement as follows: cost of products sold $6.6 million;
and marketing, research and general expenses $8.5 million.


<PAGE>

o    Personal care segment operating profit declined 6.7 percent primarily due 
     to the lower diaper sales volumes, primarily in North America, partially 
     offset by cost reduction programs. Operating profit improved somewhat in 
     Europe, due to cost savings, and in Asia on the strength of performance in 
     Australia.  However, in Latin America, operating profit declined primarily
     because of the lower sales volumes attributable in part to weak economic
     conditions in the region.

o    Consumer tissue segment operating profit decreased 10.5 percent from last
     year, despite the higher sales volumes and significant cost savings. These
     benefits were more than offset by higher fiber and energy costs and
     increased promotional activity. Promotional levels remained high for
     consumer tissue products in North America and Europe, which limited
     recovery of the higher fiber costs.

o    Business-to-business segment operating profit increased 6.0 percent from
     the prior year. Operating profit for the health care business achieved an
     all-time record driven by the sales volume growth and the benefits of cost
     savings programs. Operating profit for the Corporation's professional
     businesses in both North America and Europe increased due to cost
     reductions that more than offset higher fiber costs.

o    Other income (expense), net included a charge of $26.5 million, or $.03 per
     share, in 2002 for losses associated with tax credits in Brazil. The second
     quarter of 2002 also included higher transaction currency gains compared
     with 2003. The second quarter of 2003 reflects a higher level of expenses
     related to affordable housing and historic renovation real estate projects
     than 2002.

Note:  Unallocated items - net, consists of expenses not associated with the

Commentary:

o    Net sales in North America decreased .9 percent from last year primarily
     due to the lower sales volumes for personal care products.

o    Net sales outside of North America increased 12.6 percent principally due
     to the favorable currency effects in Europe.


<PAGE>

o    Operating profit in North America decreased 7.2 percent because the lower
     personal care sales volumes, higher fiber and energy costs, and higher
     pension expense more than offset the benefits of cost savings programs.

o    Operating profit outside North America increased 5.8 percent. Personal care
     operating results in Europe and Asia, and the growth of the health care
     business contributed to the improvement but were partially offset by lower
     earnings in the Latin American personal care business. Operating profit in
     2002 included $11.0 million of charges for the previously discussed
     business improvement programs.

Additional Income Statement Commentary:

o    Interest expense decreased because the benefit of lower interest rates more
     than offset a higher average level of debt.

o    The effective tax rate increased from 28.0 percent in 2002 to 29.1 percent
     in 2003 due to the favorable resolution of certain prior year income tax
     matters in the second quarter of 2002.

o    The Corporation's share of net income of equity companies in the second
     quarter increased to $30.3 million in 2003 from $21.5 million in 2002
     primarily due to higher net income at Kimberly-Clark de Mexico, S.A. de
     C.V. ("KCM"). Most of the increase in KCM's results was attributable to
     lower currency transaction losses compared with last year. Before currency
     effects, KCM's second quarter sales improved approximately 6 percent,
     nearly offsetting inflationary cost increases.

o    On a diluted basis, net income was $.82 per share, an increase of 1.2
     percent compared with $.81 per share in 2002.

Commentary:

Consolidated net sales for the first six months of 2003 were 3.9 percent higher
than in the prior year. Excluding favorable currency effects, net sales were
essentially flat. Overall, an increase in sales volumes of about 1 percent was
offset by higher promotion spending of nearly 1 percent.

o    Net sales of personal care products, excluding currency effects, were more
     than 1 percent lower due to a decline in sales volumes.  Net selling prices
     were slightly below last year.

o    Net sales of consumer tissue products, excluding currency effects,
     increased about 1 percent. Sales volumes increased more than 1 percent,
     however, net selling prices were slightly lower than last year.

o    Excluding currency effects, net sales of business-to-business products were
     nearly 2 percent higher due to increased sales volumes.

Consolidated operating profit declined 8.0 percent due to higher promotional
spending, higher fiber and energy costs and increased pension expense of
approximately $70 million that more than offset the benefits of cost reduction
programs of nearly $90 million.

Each of the three business segments incurred more than $20 million of the
increased pension expense.

Included in the first six months of 2002 were charges for business improvement
programs of $24.0 million primarily related to the previously announced plans to
streamline manufacturing operations in Latin America and to consolidate
administrative functions in Europe. The major components of the charge were
severance costs of nearly $11.5 million and additional depreciation of 
$6.6 million. These costs were included in the business segments as follows:
personal care $8.0 million; consumer tissue $11.5 million; and business-to-
business $4.5 million. These charges were included in the consolidated income
statement as follows: cost of products sold $14.1 million; and marketing,
research and general expenses $9.9 million.

o    Personal care segment operating profit decreased 4.2 percent primarily due
     to lower sales volumes and net selling prices because of the competitive
     environment.

o    Consumer tissue segment operating profit declined 7.4 percent because lower
     net selling prices, due to promotional spending, and higher fiber, energy
     and distribution costs more than offset higher sales volumes and the
     benefit of cost savings programs.

o    Business-to-business segment operating profit declined 1.6 percent because
     cost savings and higher sales volumes for health care products were not
     sufficient to overcome lower net selling prices and higher fiber costs for
     other operations in the segment.

o    Other income (expense), net included a charge of $15.6 million, or $.02 per
     share, in 2003 for a legal judgment in Europe, compared with the previously
     mentioned $26.5 million in 2002 for tax credit related losses in Brazil. In
     addition to these charges, other expense in 2003 reflected currency
     transaction losses compared with other income in 2002 for currency
     transaction gains, including a gain of $17.3 million on Australian dollar
     forward contracts related to last year's acquisition of the remaining 
     45 percent interest in Kimberly-Clark Australia Pty. Limited.

Note:  Unallocated items - net, consists of expenses not associated with the
       geographic areas.

Commentary:

o    Net sales in North America declined .8 percent, as the lower net selling
     prices for personal care and consumer tissue products and lower personal
     care sales volumes more than offset higher sales volumes for consumer
     tissue and business-to-business products.

o    Net sales outside North America increased 11.9 percent primarily due to
     favorable currency effects in Europe.

o    Operating profit in North America decreased 7.3 percent because the effects
     of the lower net sales for personal care and consumer tissue products,
     higher fiber and energy costs and increased pension expense more than
     offset cost savings benefits.

o    Operating profit outside North America increased 6.2 percent. Personal care
     results in Europe and Asia, and the growth of the health care business
     contributed to this improvement. Lower earnings in the Latin American
     personal care business partially offset this improvement. Operating profit
     in 2002 included $18.8 million of charges for the previously discussed
     business improvement programs.

Additional Income Statement Commentary:

o    Interest expense decreased because the benefit of lower interest rates more
     than offset a higher average level of debt.

o    The Corporation's share of net income of equity companies increased to
     $56.3 million in 2003 from $53.9 million in 2002, as lower net income from
     KCM was more than offset by higher earnings elsewhere in Latin America.


<PAGE>

o    On  a diluted basis, net income was $1.60 per share in 2003, a decrease of
     3.0 percent compared with $1.65 per share in 2002. The first six months of
     2002 included a charge of $.02 per share for the cumulative effect of an
     accounting change related to the adoption of an accounting pronouncement
     regarding trade and consumer promotion.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

o    Cash provided by operations for the first six months of 2003 decreased
     $108.5 million or 8 percent compared with the first six months of 2002. The
     effect on working capital of higher levels of finished goods inventory,
     principally due to the lower sales volumes, was primarily offset by
     increased income tax liabilities due to net refunds of prior year taxes and
     lower payments of U.S. federal taxes.  In 2003, cash provided by operations
     was reduced by a contribution of $100 million to the Corporation's U.S.
     defined benefit pension plan.

o    During the first six months of 2003, the Corporation repurchased 
     4.7 million shares of its common stock at a cost of approximately 
     $225 million, including 2.2 million shares repurchased in the second
     quarter at a cost of approximately $113 million.

o    At June 30, 2003, total debt and preferred securities was $4.4 billion, a
     decrease of $.1 billion from December 31, 2002. Net debt (total debt net of
     cash and cash equivalents and time deposits) and preferred securities was
     $3.8 billion at June 30, 2003 compared with $3.9 billion at December 31,
     2002. The ratio of net debt and preferred securities to capital at June 30,
     2003 was 36.4 percent, which is within the Corporation's target range of 
     35 to 45 percent.

o    In July 2003, Standard & Poor's ("S&P") revised the Corporation's credit
     rating for long-term debt from AA to AA-.  Moody's Investor Service 
     maintained its short- and long-term ratings but changed the Corporation's
     outlook to negative from stable, indicating that a ratings downgrade could
     be possible within the next 12 months.  These changes were primarily based
     on the Corporation's recent business performance in the heightened
     competitive environment and because S&P changed the way in which it
     evaluates liabilities for pensions and other postretirement benefits.
     Management believes that these actions will not have a material adverse
     effect on the Corporation's access to credit or its borrowing costs since
     these credit ratings remain strong and are in the top eight percent of
     companies listed in S&P's ranking of the 500 largest companies.  The 
     Corporation's commercial paper continues to be rated in the top category.

o    In June 2003, the Corporation filed a registration statement with the
     Securities and Exchange Commission to issue up to $1.5 billion in long-term
     debt securities.

     As part of its financing plan, in August 2003, the Corporation issued 
     $500 million of 5.0% Notes due August 15, 2013. The proceeds were used to
     retire commercial paper. In connection with the borrowing, the Corporation
     entered into an interest rate swap agreement maturing on August 15, 2013
     with a counterparty under which the difference between fixed- and floating-
     rate interest amounts calculated on a $300 million notional amount is 
     exchanged on a quarterly basis. The floating rate is 3-month average LIBOR
     plus 4.4 basis points. The swap agreement will permit the Corporation to
     maintain its desired ratio of fixed and floating-rate borrowings. During
     June and July 2003, the Corporation issued redemption notices on 
     $200 million of 7 7/8% and $200 million of 7.0% debentures, respectively.
     At June 30, 2003, the Corporation classified a net $100 million of 
     commercial paper to be refinanced as long-term debt.  The costs associated
     with redeeming the debentures, totaling approximately $20 million, will be
     recorded in the third quarter.

     In June 2003, the Corporation announced the repurchase of $45 million of
     industrial revenue bonds to be effective August 1, 2003.  At June 30, 2003,
     the Corporation classified the $45 million as debt payable within one year
     and reduced long-term debt by that same amount.


<PAGE>

o    During the first quarter of 2003, a minority owner in Kimberly-Clark Peru
     S.A. informed the Corporation of its intent to exercise an option to sell
     its 49 percent ownership to the Corporation. This acquisition closed in 
     July 2003. During the second quarter of 2003, the Corporation's partner in
     its joint tissue venture in Brazil informed the Corporation of its intent
     to exercise its option to sell its 50 percent ownership in the venture to
     the Corporation. This acquisition is expected to close in August 2003. The
     combined cash cost of these transactions is approximately $200 million.

o    Management believes that the Corporation's ability to generate cash from
     operations and its capacity to issue short-term and long-term debt are
     adequate to fund working capital, capital spending and other needs of the
     business in the foreseeable future.

NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

In May 2003, the FASB issued SFAS 150, Accounting for Certain Financial
Instruments with Characteristics of Both Liabilities and Equity. SFAS 150
requires that certain instruments classified as part of stockholders' equity or
between stockholders' equity and liabilities be classified as liabilities
effective in the third quarter of 2003. The Corporation currently has no such
instruments and, accordingly, adoption of SFAS 150 will have no effect on the
Corporation's consolidated financial position.

In January 2003, the FASB issued Interpretation ("FIN") 46, Consolidation of
Variable Interest Entities, an Interpretation of ARB 51. FIN 46 requires
consolidation of certain entities in which the primary beneficiary has a
controlling financial interest despite not having voting control. Likewise, it
does not permit consolidation of entities in which an entity has voting control
but not a controlling financial interest.  The Corporation is continuing to
evaluate the impact of applying FIN 46 and has not yet completed this analysis.
It is reasonably possible that the Corporation will be required to consolidate
certain of the entities described in Note 13 to the consolidated financial
statements included in the Corporation's Form 10-K for the year ended 
December 31, 2002, beginning in the third quarter of 2003. Also, it is 
reasonably possible that the Corporation will be required to deconsolidate its
Luxembourg financing subsidiary described in Note 9 to such consolidated 
financial statements. The debt of the entities that may become consolidated is
nonrecourse and the notes receivable are guaranteed, and the net obligation to a
third party in the Luxembourg financing subsidiary is presently included as 
preferred securities of subsidiary and included in the Corporation's ratio of
net debt and preferred securities to capital. Therefore, consolidation/
deconsolidation of these entities is not expected to have a material adverse
effect on the Corporation's results of operations or financial position,
including its ability to obtain financing.

ENVIRONMENTAL MATTERS

The Corporation has been named as a potentially responsible party at a number of
waste disposal sites, none of which individually or in the aggregate, in
management's opinion, is likely to have a material adverse effect on its
business, financial condition or results of operations.

OUTLOOK

Based on soft growth in the product categories in which it competes, intense
competition and higher raw material and energy costs, the Corporation expects
its business environment will remain difficult. Management will continue to
focus on increasing sales volumes and aggressively reducing costs over the
balance of 2003 in order to manage the challenges the Corporation is facing.

I
tem 4.    Controls and Procedures.

As of June 30, 2003, an evaluation was performed under the supervision and with
the participation of the Corporation's management, including the Chief Executive
Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and
operation of the Corporation's disclosure controls and procedures. Based on that
evaluation, the Corporation's management, including the Chief Executive Officer
and Chief Financial Officer, concluded that the Corporation's disclosure
controls and procedures were effective as of June 30, 2003. There have been no
significant changes in the Corporation's internal controls or in other factors
that could significantly affect internal controls subsequent to the date of the
most recent evaluation of internal controls.

                                  CAPITAL STOCK

1.  CERTIFICATES

    Every stockholder shall be entitled to have a certificate in such form as
the Board shall from time to time approve, signed by the Chairman of the Board,
a Vice Chairman of the Board, the President or a Vice President and by the
Treasurer, an Assistant Treasurer, the Secretary or an Assistant Secretary,
certifying the number of shares owned by him. Any of or all the signatures on
the certificate and the corporate seal may be facsimiles. In case any officer,
transfer agent, or registrar who has signed or whose facsimile signature has
been placed upon a certificate shall have ceased to be such officer, transfer
agent or registrar before such certificate is issued, it may be issued by the
corporation with the same effect as if he were such officer, transfer agent, or
registrar at the date of issue. While the corporation is authorized to issue
more than one class of stock or more than one series of any class, there shall
be set forth on the face or back of each certificate issued a statement
 that the
corporation will furnish without charge to each stockholder who so requests the
powers, designations, preferences and relative, participating, optional or other
special rights of each class of stock or series thereof of the corporation and
the qualifications, limitations or restrictions of such preferences and/or
rights.

2.  RECORD OWNERSHIP

    The name and address of the holder of each certificate, the number of shares
represented thereby, and the date of issuance thereof shall be recorded in the
corporation's books and records. The corporation shall be entitled to treat the
holder of record of any share of stock as the holder in fact thereof, and
accordingly shall not be bound to recognize any equitable or other claim to or
interest in any share on the part of any other person, whether or not it shall
have express or other notice thereof, except as required by law.

3.  TRANSFER

    Transfer of stock shall be made on the books of the corporation only by
direction of the person named in the certificate or his attorney, lawfully
constituted in writing, and only upon the surrender for cancellation of the
certificate therefor and a written assignment of the shares evidenced thereby.

4.  LOST CERTIFICATES

    Any person claiming a stock certificate in lieu of one lost or destroyed
shall give the corporation an affidavit as to his ownership of the certificate
and of the facts which go to prove its loss or destruction. He shall also, if
required by the Board, give the corporation a bond or other indemnification, in
such form as may be approved by the Board, sufficient to indemnify the
corporation against any claim that may be made against it on account of the
alleged loss of the certificate or the issuance of a new certificate.

5.  TRANSFER AGENT; REGISTRAR

    The corporation shall maintain one or more transfer offices or agencies,
each in charge of a transfer agent designated by the Board, where the shares of
stock of the corporation shall be transferable. The corporation shall also
maintain one or more registry offices, each in charge of a registrar designated
by the Board, where such shares of stock shall be registered. The same entity
may be both transfer agent and registrar.

6.  RECORD DATE; CLOSING TRANSFER BOOKS

    So that the corporation may determine the stockholders entitled to notice of
or to vote at any meeting of stockholders, or any adjournment thereof, or
entitled to express consent to corporate action in writing without a meeting as
provided in Article VI of the Certificate of Incorporation, or entitled to
receive payment of any dividend or other distribution or allotment of rights, or
entitled to exercise any rights in respect of any change, conversion or exchange
of capital stock, or for the purpose of any other lawful action, the Board may
fix a record date which record date shall not precede the date upon which the
resolution fixing the record date is adopted by the Board and which record date
shall not be more than sixty days nor less than ten days before the date of such
meeting, nor more than ten days from the date upon which the resolution fixing
the record date is adopted by the Board in the case of a determination of the
stockholders entitled to express consent to corporate action without a meeting,
nor more than sixty days before any other action, and only such stockholders as
shall be stockholders of record on the date so fixed shall be entitled to such
notice of and to vote at such meeting, or to give such consent, or to receive
such dividend or other distribution or allotment of rights, or to exercise such
rights, or to take such other lawful action, as the case may be, notwithstanding
any transfer of any stock on the books of the corporation after any such record
date fixed as aforesaid. A determination of stockholders of record entitled to
notice of or to vote at a meeting of stockholders shall apply to any adjournment
of the meeting; provided, however, that the Board may fix a new record date for
the adjourned meeting.

                            MEETINGS OF STOCKHOLDERS

7.  ANNUAL

    The annual meeting of stockholders for the election of directors and the
transaction of such other business as may properly be brought before the meeting
shall be held on the third Thursday in April in each year, or on such other day,
which shall not be a legal holiday, as shall be determined by the Board. The
annual meeting shall be held at such place and hour, within or without the State
of Delaware, as shall be determined by the Board. The day, place and hour of
each annual meeting shall be specified in the notice of the annual meeting. The
meeting may be adjourned by the chairman of the meeting from time to time and
place to place. At any adjourned meeting the corporation may transact any
business which might have been transacted at the original meeting. In accordance
with the provisions of applicable law, the Board acting by resolution may
postpone and reschedule any previously scheduled annual meeting of stockholders.

11. CONDUCT OF MEETINGS

    (a) The Chief Executive Officer, or in his absence such other officer as may
be designated by the Board, shall be the chairman at stockholders' meetings. The
Secretary of the corporation shall be the secretary at stockholders' meetings
but in his absence the chairman of the meeting may appoint a secretary for the
meeting. The opening and closing of the polls for matters upon which the
stockholders will vote at a meeting shall be announced at the meeting by the
chairman of the meeting. The Board may, to the extent not prohibited by law,
adopt by resolution such rules and regulations for the conduct of the meeting of
stockholders as it shall deem appropriate. Except to the extent inconsistent
with such rules and regulations as adopted by the Board, the chairman of any
meeting of stockholders shall have the right and authority to prescribe such
rules, regulations or procedures and to do all acts as, in the judgment of the
chairman, are appropriate for the proper conduct of the meeting. Such rules,
regulations or procedures, whether adopted by the Board or prescribed by the
chairman of the meeting, may to the extent not prohibited by law include,
without limitation, the following: (i) the establishment of an agenda or order
of business for the meeting; (ii) rules and procedures for maintaining order at
the meeting and the safety of those present; (iii) limitations on attendance at
or participation in the meeting to stockholders of record of the corporation,
their duly authorized and constituted proxies (which shall be reasonable in
number) or such other persons as the chairman of the meeting shall determine;
(iv) restrictions on entry to the meeting after the time fixed for the
commencement thereof; and (v) limitations on the time allotted to questions or
comments by participants.

    (b) At a meeting of the stockholders, only such business shall be conducted
as shall have been properly brought before the meeting in accordance with these
By-Laws. To be properly brought before a meeting, business must (a) be specified
in the notice of the meeting (or any supplement thereto) given by or at the
direction of the Board, (b) otherwise properly be brought before the meeting by
or at the direction of the Board, or (c) otherwise (i) properly be requested to
be brought before the meeting by a stockholder of record entitled to vote in the
election of directors generally, and (ii) constitute a proper subject to be
brought before such meeting. For business to be properly requested to be brought
before an annual meeting of stockholders by a stockholder of record, any
stockholder who intends to bring any matter (other than in connection with the
election of directors) before an annual meeting of stockholders and is entitled
to vote on such matter must deliver written notice of such stockholder's intent
to bring the matter before the annual meeting of stockholders, either by
personal delivery or by United States mail, postage prepaid, to the Secretary of
the corporation. Such notice must be received by the Secretary not less than 75
days nor more than 100 days prior to the first anniversary of the preceding
year's annual meeting; provided, however, that in the event that the date of the
annual meeting is advanced by more than 30 days or delayed by more than 60 days
from such anniversary date, notice by the stockholder to be timely must be so
delivered not earlier than the close of business on the 100th day prior to such
annual meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of the 75th
day prior to such annual meeting or the 10th day following the day on which
public announcement of the date of such meeting is first made. In no event shall
the public announcement of an adjournment of an annual meeting commence a new
time period for the giving of a stockholder notice as described above. For
purposes of this By-Law 11, "public announcement" shall mean the date disclosure
of the date of the meeting of stockholders is first made in a press release
reported by the Dow Jones News Service, Associated Press or comparable national
news service, or in a document publicly filed by the corporation with the
Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Sections 13, 14, or 15(d) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Only such business shall be
conducted at a special meeting of stockholders as shall have been brought before
the meeting pursuant to the corporation's notice of meeting.

    A stockholder's notice to the Secretary required by this By-Law 11 shall set
forth as to each matter the stockholder proposes to bring before the meeting of
stockholders: (i) a brief description of the business to be brought before the
meeting and the reasons for conducting such business at the meeting; (ii) the
name and address of the stockholder intending to propose such business; (iii)
the number of shares of stock of the corporation beneficially held, either
personally or in concert with others, by the stockholder, and a representation
that the stockholder is a holder of stock of the corporation entitled to vote at
such meeting and intends to appear in person or by proxy at the meeting to
present such proposal; and (iv) any material interest of the stockholder in such
business. No business shall be conducted at a meeting of stockholders except in
accordance with the procedures set forth in this By-Law 11. The chairman of the
meeting shall, if the facts warrant, determine and declare to the meeting that
the business was not properly brought before the meeting in accordance with the
provisions hereof and, if he should so determine, he shall so declare to the
meeting that any such business not properly brought before the meeting shall not
be transacted.

12. VOTING

    Except as otherwise provided in the Certificate of Incorporation, at each
meeting of the stockholders, each holder of shares entitled to vote at such
meeting shall, as to all matters in respect of which such shares have voting
rights, be entitled to one vote in person or by written proxy for each share
held of record by him. No vote upon any matter, except the election of directors
or the amendment of the Certificate of Incorporation, is required to be by
ballot unless demanded by the holders of at least 10% of the voting power of the
shares of capital stock represented and entitled to vote at the meeting. All
motions to introduce a matter for a vote by the stockholders at a meeting
thereof, except for nominations for election as directors recommended by the
Nominating Committee and approved by the Board, shall be seconded prior to a
vote thereon by the stockholders.

    A stockholder may authorize another person or persons to act for him as
proxy by transmitting or authorizing the transmission of a telegram, cablegram,
or other means of electronic transmission to the person who will be the holder
of the proxy or to a proxy solicitation firm, proxy support service organization
or like agent duly authorized by the person who will be the holder of the proxy
to receive such transmission, provided that any such telegram, cablegram or
other means of electronic transmission must either set forth or be submitted
with information from which it can be determined that the telegram, cablegram or
other electronic transmission was authorized by the stockholder.

    The date and time of the opening and closing of the polls for each matter
upon which the stockholders will vote at a meeting shall be announced at the
meeting. No ballot, proxies or votes, nor any revocations thereof or changes
thereto, shall be accepted by the inspectors after the closing of the polls. All
elections and questions shall be decided by plurality vote, except as otherwise
required by the laws of Delaware or the Certificate of Incorporation.

13. INSPECTORS OF ELECTION

    The Chief Executive Officer shall, in advance of any meeting of
stockholders, appoint one or more inspectors to act at the meeting and make a
written report thereof. He may designate one or more persons as alternate
inspectors to replace any inspector who fails to act. If no inspector or
alternate is able to act at a meeting of stockholders, the chairman of the
meeting shall appoint one or more inspectors to act at the meeting. Each
inspector, before entering upon the discharge of his duties, shall take and sign
an oath faithfully to execute the duties of inspector with strict impartiality
and according to the best of his ability.

    The inspectors shall (i) ascertain the number of shares outstanding and the
voting power of each, (ii) determine the number of shares represented at a
meeting and the validity of proxies and ballots, (iii) count all votes and
ballots, (iv) determine and retain for a reasonable period a record of the
disposition of any challenges made to any determination by the inspectors, and
(v) certify their determination of the number of shares represented at the
meeting, and their count of all votes and ballots. The inspectors may appoint or
retain other persons or entities to assist the inspectors in the performance of
the duties of the inspectors. The inspectors shall determine the validity of and
count the proxies and ballots in accordance with applicable law.

14. LIST OF STOCKHOLDERS

    A complete list of the stockholders entitled to vote at stockholders'
meetings (arranged in alphabetical order and showing the address of each
stockholder and the number of shares registered in the name of each stockholder)
shall be prepared by the Secretary and filed at least ten days prior to each
meeting, either at a place specified in the notice of such meeting within the
city or town where such meeting is to be held, or if no such place is specified,
at the place where such meeting is to be held. Such list shall be open to the
examination of any stockholder for any purpose germane to the meeting, and shall
be produced and kept at the time and place of such meeting during the whole time
thereof, and subject to the inspection of any stockholder who may be present.
The original or duplicate stock ledger shall be the only evidence as to who are
stockholders entitled to inspect such list.

corporation who are present shall be deemed, in order of rank and within the
same rank in order of seniority, directors for such meeting. Subject to the
provisions of the Certificate of Incorporation, the action of the majority of
directors present at a meeting at which a quorum is present shall be the act of
the Board. In the event of lack of a quorum, a majority of the directors present

46. INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS

    The corporation shall:

        (i) indemnify any 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 (other
    than an action by or in the right of the corporation) by reason of the fact
    that he is or was a director or officer of the corporation, or is or was
    serving at the request of the corporation as a director or officer of
    another corporation, or in the case of an officer or director of the
    corporation is or was serving as an employee or agent of a partnership,
    joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against expenses (including
    attorneys' fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually
    and reasonably incurred by him in connection with such action, suit or
    proceeding if he acted in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed
    to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with
    respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to
    believe his conduct was unlawful. The termination of any action, suit or
    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
    he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the
    corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had
    reasonable cause to believe that his conduct was unlawful; and

        (ii) indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be
    made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or suit by or in
    the right of the corporation to procure a judgment in its favor by reason of
    the fact that he is or was a director or officer of the corporation, or is
    or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director or officer of
    another corporation, or in the case of an officer or director of the
    corporation is or was serving as an employee or agent of a partnership,
    joint venture, trust or other enterprise against expenses (including
    attorneys' fees) actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection with
    the defense or settlement of such action or suit if he acted in good faith
    and in a manner he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best
    interests of the corporation and except that no indemnification shall be
    made in respect of any claim, issue or matter as to which such person shall
    have been adjudged to be liable to the corporation unless and only to the
    extent that the Court of Chancery or the court in which such action or suit
    was brought shall determine upon application that, despite the adjudication
    of liability but in view of all the circumstances of the case, such person
    is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for such expenses which the
    Court of Chancery or such other court shall deem proper.

    The corporation shall be required to indemnify an indemnitee in connection
with a proceeding (or part thereof) initiated by such indemnitee against the
corporation or any of its directors, officers or employees only if the
initiation of such proceeding (or part thereof) by the indemnitee was authorized
by the Board. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the corporation shall be required
to indemnify an indemnitee in connection with a proceeding seeking to enforce
rights to indemnification without the authorization of the Board to the extent
that such proceeding is successful on the merits. To the extent that a director
or officer of the corporation has been successful on the merits or otherwise in
defense of any action, suit or proceeding referred to in subsections (i) and
(ii), or in defense of any claim, issue or matter therein, he shall be
indemnified against expenses (including attorneys' fees) actually and reasonably
incurred by him in connection therewith.

    Any indemnification under subsections (i) and (ii) (unless ordered by a
court) shall be made by the corporation only as authorized in the specific case
upon a determination that indemnification of the director or officer is proper
in the circumstances because he has met the applicable standard of conduct set
forth in subsections (i) and (ii). Such determination shall be made (1) by a
majority vote of the directors who were not parties to such action, suit or
proceedings, even though less than a quorum; or (2) if there are no such
directors, or if such directors so direct, by independent legal counsel in a
written opinion; or (3) by the stockholders.


    Expenses (including attorneys' fees) incurred in defending any civil,
criminal, administrative or investigative action, suit or proceeding may be paid
by the corporation in advance of the final disposition of such action, suit or
proceeding upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of the director or
officer to repay such amount if it shall ultimately be determined that he is not
entitled to be indemnified by the corporation as authorized in this By-Law.

    The indemnification and advancement of expenses provided by, or granted
pursuant to, the other paragraphs of this By-Law shall not be deemed exclusive
of any other rights to which those seeking indemnification or advancement of
expenses may be entitled under any by-law, agreement, vote of stockholders or
disinterested directors or otherwise, both as to action in his official capacity
and as to action in another capacity while holding such office, and shall
continue as to a person who has ceased to be a director or officer and shall
inure to the benefit of the heirs, executors and administrators of such a
person.

    The corporation's obligation, if any, to indemnify any person who was or is
serving at its request as a director, officer, employee or agent of another
corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust, enterprise or nonprofit entity
shall be reduced by any amount such person may collect as indemnification from
such other corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust, enterprise or
nonprofit entity.

    The Board may authorize and direct that insurance be purchased and
maintained on behalf of any person who is or was a director or officer of the
corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a
director or officer of another corporation, or in the case of an officer or
director of the corporation is or was serving as an employee or agent of a
partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise against any liability
asserted against him and incurred by him in any such capacity, or arising out of
his status as such, whether or not the corporation would have the power to
indemnify him against such liability under the provisions of this By-Law.

47. RELIANCE ON RECORDS

    Each director, each member of any committee designated by the Board, and
each officer, shall, in the performance of his duties, be fully protected in
relying in good faith upon the records of the corporation and upon such
information, opinion, reports or statements presented to the corporation by any
of the corporation's officers or employees, or committees of the Board, or by
any other person as to matters the director, member or officer reasonably
believes are within such other person's professional or expert competence and
who has been selected with reasonable care by or on behalf of the corporation.

48. INSPECTION OF BOOKS

    The directors shall determine from time to time whether, and, to what extent
and at what times and places and under what conditions and regulations the
accounts and other books and records of the corporation (except such as may by
statute be specifically open to inspection) or any of them, shall be open to the
inspection of the stockholders, and the stockholders' rights in this respect are
and shall be restricted and limited accordingly.

49. TRANSACTIONS WITH THE CORPORATION

    No contract or transaction between the corporation and one or more of its
directors or officers, or between the corporation and any other corporation,
partnership, association, or other organization in which one or more of its
directors or officers are directors or officers, or have a financial interest,
shall be void or voidable solely for this reason, or solely because the director
or officer is present at or participates in the meeting of the Board or
committee thereof which authorizes the contract or transaction, or solely
because his or their votes are counted for such purpose, if:

        (i) the material facts as to his relationship or interest and as to the
        contract or transaction are disclosed or are known to the Board or the
        committee, and the Board or committee in good faith authorizes the
        contract or transaction by the affirmative votes of a majority of the
        disinterested directors, even though the disinterested directors be less
        than a quorum; or

        (ii) the material facts as to his relationship or interest and as to the
        contract or transaction are disclosed or are known to the stockholders
        entitled to vote thereon, and the contract or transaction is
        specifically approved in good faith by vote of the stockholders; or

        (iii) the contract or transaction is fair as to the corporation as of
        the time it is authorized, approved or ratified, by the Board, a
        committee thereof, or the stockholders.

    Common or interested directors may be counted in determining the presence of
a quorum at a meeting of the Board or of a committee which authorizes the
contract or transaction.

    No other contract or transaction in which a director or officer has an
interest and which may, under law, be authorized, approved or ratified by the
Board, a committee thereof, or the stockholders shall be void or voidable if
authorized, approved or ratified by the body which under law may authorize,
approve or ratify such contract or transaction.

50. RATIFICATION

    Any transaction questioned in any stockholders' derivative suit on the
ground of lack of authority, defective or irregular execution, adverse interest
of director, officer or stockholder, nondisclosure, miscomputation, or the
application of improper principles or practices of accounting may be ratified
before or after judgment, by the Board or by the stockholders in case less than
a quorum of directors is qualified; and, if so ratified, shall have the same
force and effect as if the questioned transaction had been originally duly
authorized, and said ratification shall be binding upon the corporation and its
stockholders and shall constitute a bar to any claim or execution of any
judgment in respect to such questioned transaction.

51. VOTING OF STOCKS

    Unless otherwise ordered by the Board, any one of the Chief Executive
Officer, the Chairman of the Board, the President, any Vice Chairman of the
Board, any Executive Vice President or any Senior Vice President shall have full
power and authority, on behalf of the corporation, to consent to or approve of
any action by, and to attend, act and vote at any meeting of stockholders of,
any company in which the corporation may hold shares of stock, and in giving
such consent or approval or at any such meeting shall possess and may exercise
any and all rights and powers incident to the ownership of such shares and which
as the holder thereof, the corporation might possess and exercise if personally
present, and may exercise such power and authority through the execution of
proxies or may delegate such power and authority to any other officer, agent or
employee of the corporation.

52. NOTICE

    Any notice which the corporation is required to give under these By-Laws may
be given personally or it may be given in writing by depositing the notice in
the post office or letter box in a postpaid envelope directed to such address as
appears on the books of the corporation. Such notice shall be deemed to be given
at the time of mailing.

53. WAIVER OF NOTICE

    Whenever any notice is required to be given, a waiver thereof in writing
signed by the person or persons entitled to the notice, whether before or after
the time stated therein, shall be deemed equivalent thereto.

54. DISPENSING WITH NOTICE

    No notice need be given to any person with whom communication is made
unlawful by any law of the United States or any rule, regulation, proclamation
or executive order issued under any such law.

55. AMENDMENTS

    Subject to the provisions of the Certificate of Incorporation, these By-Laws
may be altered, amended or repealed by the stockholders or by the Board.

       (a)    Designed such disclosure controls and procedures, or caused such
              disclosure controls and procedures to be designed under our
