Such option shall be in effect as long as NCIF maintains a beneficial ownership in Broadway Common Stock.  The provisions of this Section 8 shall apply on an as-converted basis to any Common Stock Equivalents or non-voting preferred stock or non-voting common stock of Broadway theretofore issued in exchange for Common Stock at the request of NCIF.


9.                                      TRANSFER OF COMMON STOCK.  Subject to compliance with applicable securities laws, NCIF shall be permitted to transfer, sell, assign or otherwise dispose of (“Transfer”) all or a portion of the Common Stock acquired by NCIF pursuant to this Agreement or the Loan Sale Agreement at any time, and Broadway shall take all steps as may be reasonably requested by NCIF to facilitate the Transfer of Common Stock.




10.                               ISSUANCE OF EQUITY SECURITIES.  Broadway agrees not to issue equity securities ranking senior to the Common Stock for a period of two (2) years from the Closing Date, except in the following circumstances:  (i) in connection with the provisions of a shareholders’ rights plan of Broadway; (ii) in connection with a rights offering or other distribution to shareholders of Common Stock in proportion to their respective ownership interests; or (iii) if approved by the holders of a majority of the outstanding Common Stock.




(a)                                 Broadway does not currently have sufficient authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock available under its certificate of incorporation to enable it to complete the NCIF Exchange, each of the Other Exchanges, and the Equity Offering.  In addition, issuance of Common Stock for such purposes would ordinarily require approval by Broadway’s stockholders pursuant to Rule 5635 of the corporate governance rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market.  Accordingly, Broadway has agreed with the Treasury Department that Broadway will, as a condition to completion of the Treasury Exchanges, either:  (i) obtain the required Broadway stockholder approval under the Nasdaq corporate governance rules and complete the other steps required to amend its certificate of incorporation to authorize the issuance of a sufficient number of shares of Common Stock for such purposes; or (ii) file a certificate of designations with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware to designate a new series of preferred stock out of Broadway’s authorized but unissued preferred stock, to be designated Series F Common Stock Equivalent (the “Common Stock Equivalents”), the terms of which will include that, upon the affirmative vote of the stockholders of Broadway specified in such certificate and relating to an increase in the shares of Common Stock it is authorized to issue (the “Required Vote”), such preferred stock shall be mandatorily convertible into the number of shares of Common Stock that would be issued directly if the Treasury Exchanges were made for Common Stock and an escalating cumulative dividend requirement to provide an incentive to the stockholders of Broadway to provide such vote.  The certificate of designations for such series of preferred stock shall be substantially in the form attached as Exhibit B to this Agreement.  Broadway and the Treasury Department have further agreed in such event that the Treasury Exchanges shall be for shares of the Common Stock Equivalents rather than shares of Common Stock.  The number of shares of Common Stock Equivalents to be issued in such alternative transaction (excluding shares to be issued in respect of accrued cumulative dividends under the terms of the TARP Preferred Stock) shall be the number of shares of Common Stock Equivalents that has an aggregate liquidation preference equal to 50% of the liquidation preference of all of the TARP Preferred Stock to be exchanged.


(b)                                 NCIF hereby agrees that if the Treasury Exchanges are completed using Common Stock Equivalents, then NCIF will exchange all of its shares of Series C Preferred Stock for shares of Common Stock Equivalents on the same basis, as adjusted to reflect the different per share liquidation preferences of the Series C Preferred Stock and the TARP Preferred Stock, that is, the number of shares of Common Stock Equivalents to be issued to NCIF shall equal the number determined by dividing (A) 50% of the aggregate liquidation preference of all of the Shares exchanged by NCIF by (B) $1,000, which is the per share liquidation preference of the Common Stock Equivalents.  NCIF further agrees to vote all shares of Common Stock Equivalents and Common Stock that it owns or controls so as to obtain the Required Vote.




(c)                                  Broadway represents and warrants that the Common Stock Equivalents will have been duly and validly authorized by all necessary action, and, when issued and delivered pursuant to this Agreement, such Common Stock Equivalents will be duly and validly issued and fully paid and nonassessable, will not be issued in violation of any preemptive rights, will not subject the holder thereof to personal liability, and such shares will rank pari passu with or senior to all other series or classes of preferred stock, whether or not issued or outstanding.
