    each person entitled to indemnification hereunder as to all expense, liability, and loss (including attorney's fees, judgments, fines, ERISA excise taxes, penalties and amounts to be paid in settlement) actually and reasonably incurred or suffered by such person and for which indemnification is available to such person pursuant to this Article VI to the fullest extent permitted by any applicable portion of this Article VI that shall not have been invalidated and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.


Article VII—SECTION 203 OF THE DGCL

        The Corporation expressly elects to be governed by Section 203 of the DGCL.


Article VIII—CERTAIN CONTRACTS; CORPORATE OPPORTUNITY

        Section 1.    Regulation of Certain Affairs.    In anticipation that:

            (a)   the Corporation will cease to be a wholly owned subsidiary of McDonald's, but that McDonald's will remain, for some period of time, a shareholder of the Corporation;

            (b)   the Corporation and McDonald's may engage in the same or similar activities or lines of business and have an interest in the same or similar areas of corporate opportunities; and

            (c)   there will be benefits to be derived by the Corporation through its contractual, corporate and business relations with McDonald's (including possible service of officers and directors of McDonald's as officers and directors of the Corporation) and there will be benefits in providing guidelines for directors and officers of McDonald's and of the Corporation with respect to the allocation of corporate opportunities and other matters;

the provisions of this Article are set forth to regulate, define and guide the conduct of certain affairs of the Corporation as they may involve McDonald's and its officers and directors, and the powers, rights, duties and liabilities of the Corporation and its officers, directors and shareholders in connection therewith; provided, however, that nothing in this Article will impair the Corporation's ability to enter into contractual arrangements with a shareholder of the Corporation, which arrangements restrict the shareholder from engaging in activities otherwise allowed by this Article, and the following provisions shall be subject to any such contractual obligation of the Corporation.

        Section 2.    Certain Contracts.    No contract, agreement, arrangement or transaction between the Corporation and McDonald's shall be void or voidable solely for the reason that McDonald's is a party thereto, and McDonald's (a) shall have fully satisfied and fulfilled its fiduciary duties to the Corporation and its shareholders with respect thereto; (b) shall not be liable to the Corporation or its shareholders for any breach of fiduciary duty by reason of the entering into, performance or consummation of any such contract, agreement, arrangement or transaction; (c) shall be deemed to have acted in good faith and in a manner it reasonably believed to be in and not opposed to the best interests of the Corporation; and (d) shall be deemed not to have breached its duties of loyalty to the Corporation and its shareholders and not to have received an improper personal gain therefrom, if the material facts as to the contract, agreement, arrangement or transaction are disclosed or are known to the Board of Directors or the committee thereof that authorizes the contract, agreement, arrangement or transaction, and the Board of Directors or such committee in good faith authorizes the contract, agreement, arrangement or transaction by the affirmative vote of a majority of the disinterested directors, even though less than a quorum. Directors of the Corporation who are also directors or officers of McDonald's may be counted in determining the presence of a quorum at a meeting of the Board of Directors or of a committee that authorizes the contract, agreement, arrangement or transaction.
