On August 12, 2014, T2 Biosystems, Inc. (the "Company") filed a restated certificate of incorporation (the "Restated Certificate") with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware in connection with the closing of the initial public offering (the "IPO") of shares of its common stock. The Company's board of directors and stockholders previously approved the Restated Certificate to be filed upon the closing of the IPO.

The Restated Certificate amends and restates the Company's certificate of incorporation in its entirety to, among other things: (i) increase the authorized number of shares of common stock to 200,000,000 shares; (ii) eliminate all references to the previously existing series of preferred stock; (iii) authorize 10,000,000 shares of undesignated preferred stock that may be issued from time to time by the Company's board of directors in one or more series; (iv) establish a classified board of directors, divided into three classes, each of whose members will serve for staggered three-year terms; (v) provide that directors may be removed from office only for cause and only upon the affirmative vote of the holders of at least two-thirds of the holders of the Company's capital stock entitled to vote; (vi) eliminate the ability of the Company's stockholders to take action by written consent in lieu of a meeting; and (vii) designate the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware to be the sole and exclusive forum for certain actions, including, but not limited to, derivative actions or proceedings brought on behalf of the Company or actions asserting claims of breach of a fiduciary duty owned by, or other wrongdoing by, any of the Company's directors, officers, employees or agents to the Company or the Company's stockholders.

The foregoing description of the amendments made by the Restated Certificate is qualified by reference to the Restated Certificate, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

On August 12, 2014, in connection with the closing of the IPO, amended and restated bylaws of the Company (the "Amended and Restated Bylaws"), previously approved by the Company's board of directors to become effective upon the closing of the IPO, became effective. The Amended and Restated Bylaws amend and restate the Company's bylaws in their entirety to, among other things: (i) establish procedures relating to the presentation of stockholder proposals at stockholder meetings; (ii) establish procedures relating to the nomination of directors; and (iii) conform to the amended provisions of the Restated Certificate.

The foregoing description of the amendments made in the Amended and Restated Bylaws is qualified by reference to the Amended and Restated Bylaws, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.2 and is incorporated herein by reference.
