1.3 Transferees. If Stockholder desires to transfer, sell, assign, pledge or otherwise dispose of or encumber any Shares (collectively, a Transfer), such Transfer shall not take effect until the pledgee, transferee or donee of such Shares (the Transferee) furnishes the Proxyholder and the Corporation with a written agreement to be bound by the terms of this Proxy Agreement (an Assumption Agreement) it being understood and agreed that the Corporation shall be entitled to issue stop transfer instructions in respect of such Shares to preclude any transfer of Shares in contravention of the foregoing.
