(ii)          Notwithstanding Section 2(b)(i), the Restricted Shares may vest, and the Right of Repurchase may lapse, sooner under a Change of Control as defined in Section 3.

The Company shall be deemed to have exercised its Right of Repurchase automatically for all Restricted Shares as of the commencement of the Repurchase Period, unless the Company during the Repurchase Period notifies the holder of the Restricted Shares pursuant to Section 9 that it will not exercise its Right of Repurchase for some or all of the Restricted Shares. During the Repurchase Period, the Company shall pay to the holder of the Restricted Shares the purchase price determined under Section 2(a) above for the Restricted Shares being repurchased $0.01 per Share, as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends and similar corporate transactions).

(e)    Termination of Rights as Stockholder.

Appropriate adjustments to reflect the exchange or distribution of such securities or property shall be made to the number and/or class of the Restricted Shares and to all of the provisions of this Section 2, including the price per share to be paid upon the exercise of the Right of Repurchase, provided that the aggregate purchase price payable for the Restricted Shares shall remain the same. In the event of a merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another entity or any other corporate reorganization that does not constitute a Change in Control, the Right of Repurchase may be exercised by the Company's successor.
