Vesting:  Upon vesting of each RSU, the Participant shall be entitled to a payment equal to the Fair Market Value of one Share.  The payment shall be paid to the Participant in Shares, such that the requirements of Section 580 of the Companies Act 2006 are satisfied (being that no Shares are issued for a consideration of less than their nominal value).

Termination:  Notwithstanding anything in Section 8 of the Plan to the contrary, in the event of termination of the Participant’s Continuous Status as an Employee or Consultant, any RSUs that have not vested will lapse immediately.

Dilution Protection:  The Plan contains detailed provisions for adjustments in the number and price of Shares for various corporate events, such as a change in capitalization, or a corporate transaction.

Withholding:  The Company has the right to reduce the amount of Shares to be delivered to the Participant upon vesting by the number of Shares with an aggregate fair market value equal to the up to the maximum amount of withholding taxes that the Company is required to withhold.

Stockholder Rights:  The Award itself does not confer the rights of the underlying Shares which are the subject of the Award.  Shareholder rights derive only from Share ownership.

Contract:  This Agreement and the Plan constitute the entire agreement between you and the Company with regard to the Award described herein, and may not be modified or amended except in a writing duly executed by the Participant and an executive officer of the Company.
