her beneficiary, without charge, one or more stock certificates evidencing the shares of Restricted Stock that have not then been forfeited and with respect to which the Restricted Period has expired (rounded down to the nearest full share). Dividends, if any, that may have been withheld by the Company and attributable to any particular share of Restricted Stock shall be distributed to the Participant in cash or, at the sole discretion of the Committee, in shares of Common Stock having a Fair Market Value as of the date on which the Restricted Period expired equal to the amount of such dividends, upon the release of restrictions on such share and, if any such shares of Restricted Stock are forfeited, the Participant shall have no right to such dividends (except as otherwise set forth in the applicable Award agreement).
(2) Unless otherwise provided in an Award agreement, upon the expiration of the Restricted Period with respect to any outstanding Restricted Stock Units, the Company shall deliver to the Participant, or his or her beneficiary, without charge, one share of Common Stock for each such outstanding Restricted Stock Unit; provided, however, that the Company may, as determined by the Committee, in its sole discretion, (x) pay cash, or part cash and part shares of Common Stock, in lieu of delivering only shares of Common Stock in respect of such Restricted Stock Units or (y) defer the delivery of shares of Common Stock (or cash, or part shares of Common Stock and part cash, as the case may be) beyond the expiration of the Restricted Period, if such delivery would result in a violation of applicable law, until such time as such payment or delivery would no longer result in a violation of applicable law. If, in settling any Restricted Stock Units, a cash payment is made in lieu of delivering any shares of Common Stock, the amount of such cash payment shall be equal to the Fair Market Value of the corresponding shares of Common Stock as of the date on which the Restricted Period expired. The Committee may grant dividend equivalents in respect of Restricted Stock Units awarded on such terms and conditions as the Committee determines.
(v) Legends on Restricted Stock. As determined by the Committee, in its sole discretion, each certificate representing shares of Restricted Stock awarded under the Plan shall bear a legend in the form and containing such information as the Committee determines appropriate until the lapse of all restrictions with respect to such shares of Restricted Stock.
(d) Stock Bonus Awards. The Committee may issue unrestricted shares of Common Stock, or other Awards denominated in shares of Common Stock, under the Plan to Eligible Persons, either alone or in tandem with other Awards, in such amounts as the Committee shall determine, in its sole discretion (each, a Stock Bonus Award). Each Stock Bonus Award granted under the Plan shall be subject to such conditions as may be reflected in the applicable Award agreement.
