Without limiting the foregoing, the Company shall, unless otherwise determined by the Committee, withhold Shares having a Fair Market Value equal to such tax withholding amount (but not in excess of the applicable individual maximum statutory rate) from the Shares that otherwise would be issued to the Participant in respect of such exercise.
SECTION 3. Rights as a Stockholder. The Participant shall not be deemed for any purpose, nor have any of the rights or privileges of, a stockholder of the Company in respect of any Share underlying the Option unless, until and to the extent that (a) the Option shall have been exercised pursuant to its terms, (b) the Company shall have issued and delivered such Share to the Participant and (c) the Participant’s name shall have been entered as a stockholder of record with respect to such Share on the books of the Company.
