Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein and in the Plan, a percentage of the Performance Share Units equal to the Payout Level shall become vested, if at all, provided that the Participant remains continuously employed by the Company from the Grant Date through the Vesting Date, except to the extent that vesting occurs pursuant to Sections 4(a) or (b). Any Performance Share Units that are determined to have not vested shall be immediately forfeited. The determination by the Committee of the number of Shares deliverable to the Participant shall be binding on the Participant and conclusive for all purposes.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, any vesting of Performance Share Units pursuant to this Section 4(b) is conditioned upon the Participant’s execution during the applicable release review period, and non-revocation, of a written release (in such form reasonably prescribed by the Company or in substantially the form attached to an employment agreement entered into by and between the Participant and the Company or any of its affiliates) of any and all claims against the Company and its affiliates.
5.Forfeiture of Performance Share Units. If at any time prior to the Vesting Date the Participant’s employment by the Company ceases for any reason other than as described in Section 4(a) or 4(b), the Performance Share Units shall be forfeited by the Participant and deemed canceled by the Company.
