(b)    Shares of Restricted Stock granted herein may not be sold, assigned, transferred, pledged or otherwise encumbered or disposed of by the Grantee prior to vesting.

The Grantee may elect to have the required minimum tax withholding obligation satisfied, in whole or in part, by (i) authorizing the Company to withhold from shares of Stock to be issued, or
(ii) transferring to the Company, a number of shares of Stock with an aggregate Fair Market Value that would satisfy the withholding amount due.

The performance-vesting condition in this Award shall be measured based on the Company’s performance through the end of the fiscal quarter preceding the Grantee’s death or Disability.

The foregoing Agreement is hereby accepted and the terms and conditions thereof hereby agreed to by the undersigned.
