Stock Option Agreement (Severance Plan Participants) Rev. January 2021 8 register the Shares with the Securities and Exchange Commission or to effect compliance with the exemption, registration, qualification or listing requirements of any state securities laws, stock exchange or similar organization, and the Company shall have no liability for any inability or failure to do so. The Company may cause a restrictive legend or legends to be placed on any certificate for Shares issued pursuant to the Option in such form as may be prescribed from time to time by Applicable Law or as may be advised by legal counsel. 11. Certain Changes in Status. The Participant acknowledges that the Administrator has the sole discretion to determine (taking into account any Code Section 409A considerations), at any time, the effect, if any, on the Option (including but not limited to modifying the vesting and/or exercisability of the Option) of any changes in the Participant’s status (other than termination) as an Employee, including but not limited to a change from full-time to part- time, or vice versa, or other similar changes in the nature or scope of the Participant’s employment or service. 12. Governing Law. Except as otherwise provided in the Plan or herein, this Agreement shall be construed and enforced according to the laws of the State of Georgia, without regard to the conflict of laws provisions of any state, and in accordance with applicable federal laws of the United States. The Company and the Participant agree that any dispute arising from this Agreement shall be resolved only in a state or federal court sitting in Fulton County, Georgia, which shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any such dispute. The Company and the Participant consent to the personal jurisdiction and waive any objection to jurisdiction or venue in any such court. 13. Amendment and Termination; Waiver. Subject to the terms of the Plan, this Agreement may be amended, altered, suspended and/or terminated at any time, prospectively or retroactively, by the Administrator; provided, however, that any such amendment, alteration, suspension or termination of the Option shall not, without the written consent of the Participant, materially adversely affect the rights of the Participant with respect to the Option. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Administrator shall have unilateral authority to amend the Plan and this Agreement (without Participant consent) to the extent necessary to comply with Applicable Law or changes to Applicable Law (including but in no way limited to Code Section 409A, Code Section 422 and federal securities laws). The Administrator also shall have unilateral authority to make adjustments to the terms and conditions of the Option in recognition of unusual or nonrecurring events affecting the Company or any Affiliate, or the financial statements of the Company or any Affiliate, or of changes in Applicable Law, or accounting principles, if the Administrator determines that such adjustments are appropriate in order to prevent dilution or enlargement of the benefits or potential benefits intended to be made available under the Plan or necessary or appropriate to comply with applicable accounting principles or Applicable Law. The waiver by the Company of a breach of any provision of this Agreement by the Participant shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach by the Participant. 14. No Rights as a Shareholder. The Participant and the Participant’s legal representatives, legatees, distributees or transferees shall not be deemed to be the holder of any Shares subject to the Option and shall not have any rights of a shareholder unless and until certificates for such Shares have been issued and delivered to him or them.
