Definition of Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation

An amended and restated certificate of incorporation is typically filed by a startup with the secretary of state of its state of incorporation in connection with raising a priced round of financing from investors (e.g., a Series A round). The purpose of filing the amended and restated certificate is to set forth the rights and preferences of the new series of preferred stock sold to investors in the financing.
