Thereafter, the Corporation will transfer such RSU Shares to the Award Holder upon the satisfaction of any required tax withholding obligations, securities law registration or other requirements, and applicable stock exchange listing. No fractional shares shall be issued with respect to the Award. The Award Holder shall not acquire or have any rights as a shareholder of the Corporation by virtue of this restricted stock unit agreement (or the Award evidenced hereby) until the certificates representing shares of Common Stock issuable pursuant to this Award are actually issued and delivered to the Award Holder in accordance with the terms of the Plan and this restricted stock unit agreement.

Any securities so substituted shall be subject to similar successive adjustments.
7. No Right to Continued Employment. Nothing in the Plan, in this restricted stock unit agreement or in any other instrument executed pursuant thereto shall confer upon the Award Holder any right to continue in the employ of the Corporation or any Subsidiary of the Corporation or shall interfere in any way with the right of the Corporation or any such Subsidiary to at any time terminate the employment of the Award Holder with or without cause.

In connection with any such issuance or transfer, the person acquiring the shares shall, if requested by the Corporation, give assurances satisfactory to counsel to the Corporation in respect of such matters as the Corporation or any Subsidiary of the Corporation may deem desirable to assure compliance with all applicable legal requirements.
9. No Rights as a Shareholder.
