The Executive hereby agrees that for a period (the “Restricted Period”) commencing on the Effective Date and ending ninety (90) days following the termination of Executive’s employment with the Company for whatever reason, Executive shall not, on behalf of himself or any other individual or group of individuals, firm, company, corporation, partnership, trust or other entity or enterprise or successor in interest to any of the foregoing, or any employee, partner, officer, director, partner, or stockholder of any of the foregoing (each individually, a Person and collectively, Persons,”) directly or indirectly, as an employee, proprietor, stockholder, partner, consultant, or otherwise, engage in any business or activity directly competitive with the Business or any of the business activities of the Company as they are now, currently proposed to be, or are, at the time in question, undertaken by the Company, anywhere in North America (the “Territory,”) except as expressly approved by the Board in writing. With respect to the Territory, Executive specifically acknowledges that the Company has conducted the Business throughout those areas comprising the Territory and the Company intends to continue to expand the Business throughout the Territory.


8.3             Blue-Pencil.

The court in each case shall reduce the Restricted Period and/or the Territory to permissible duration or size.

The Executive shall have no duty to seek other employment and the amounts, benefits and entitlements payable to the Executive hereunder or otherwise shall not be subject to reduction, offset or repayment for any compensation received by the Executive from services provided by the Executive following the termination of the Executive’s employment with the Company.


17.         Section 409A.


17.1             The intent of the parties is that payments and benefits under this Agreement comply with Internal Revenue Code Section 409A and the regulations and guidance promulgated thereunder (collectively Code Section 409A) and, accordingly, to the maximum extent permitted, this Agreement shall be interpreted to be in compliance therewith. In no event whatsoever shall the Company be liable for any additional tax, interest or penalty that may be imposed on the Executive by Code Section 409A or damages for failing to comply with Code Section 409A.


17.2             A termination of employment shall not be deemed to have occurred for purposes of any provision of this Agreement providing for the payment of any amounts or benefits upon or following a termination of employment unless such termination is also a “separation from service” within the meaning of Code Section 409A and, for purposes of any such provision of this Agreement, references to a “termination,” “termination of employment” or like terms shall mean “separation from service.” Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, if the Executive is deemed on the date of termination to be a “specified employee” within the meaning of that term under Code Section 409A(a)(2)(B), then with regard to any payment or the provision of any benefit that is considered deferred compensation under Code Section 409A payable on account of a “separation from service,” such payment or benefit shall not be made or provided until the date which is the earlier of (A) the expiration of the six (6)-month period measured from the date of such “separation from service” of the Executive, and (B) the date of the Executive’s death, to the extent required under Code Section 409A. Upon the expiration of the foregoing delay period, all payments and benefits delayed pursuant to this Agreement (whether they would have otherwise been payable in a single sum or in installments in the absence of such delay) shall be paid or reimbursed to the Executive in a lump sum, and any remaining payments and benefits due under this Agreement shall be paid or provided in accordance with the normal payment dates specified for them herein.


17.3             To the extent that reimbursements or other in-kind benefits under this Agreement constitute “nonqualified deferred compensation” for purposes of Code Section 409A, (A) all such expenses or other reimbursements hereunder shall be made on or prior to the last day of the taxable year following the taxable year in which such expenses were incurred by the Executive, (B) any right to such reimbursement or in-kind benefits shall not be subject to liquidation or exchange for another benefit, and (C) no such reimbursement, expenses eligible for reimbursement, or in-kind benefits provided in any taxable year shall in any way affect the expenses eligible for reimbursement, or in-kind benefits to be provided, in any other taxable year.


17.4             For purposes of Code Section 409A, the Executive’s right to receive any installment payments pursuant to this Agreement shall be treated as a right to receive a series of separate and distinct payments. Whenever a payment under this Agreement specifies a payment period with reference to a number of days, the actual date of payment within the specified period shall be within the sole discretion of the Company.


17.5             Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, in no event shall any payment under this Agreement that constitutes “nonqualified deferred compensation” for purposes of Code Section 409A be subject to offset by any other amount unless otherwise permitted by Code Section 409A.





18.         Adjustment. Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, in the event it shall be determined that as a result of any payment or distribution by the Company to or for Executive’s benefit whether paid or payable or distributed or distributable pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or otherwise (the “Payments”), Executive would be subject to the excise tax imposed by Sections 409A, 280G or Section 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code or any interest or penalties are incurred by the Executive with respect to such excise tax (such excise tax, together with any such interest and penalties, are hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Excise Tax”), the Executive shall be entitled to receive an additional payment (a “Gross-Up Payment”) in an amount such that, after payment by the Executive of all taxes (including any interest or penalties imposed with respect to such taxes), including, without limitation, any income taxes and Excise Tax imposed upon the Gross-Up Payment, Executive is in the same after-tax position as if no Excise Tax had been imposed upon Executive with respect to the Payments, provided further that such Gross-Up Payment shall be made prior to April 15th of the calendar year following the year in which Executive receive any payment or distribution from the Company which gives rise to a Gross-Up Payment.


19.         Miscellaneous


19.1             Entire Agreement. This Agreement supersedes any prior agreements or understandings, oral or written, between the parties hereto, with respect to the subject matter hereof and constitutes the entire agreement of the parties with respect thereto.


19.2             Modification. This Agreement shall not be varied, altered, modified, canceled, changed, or in any way amended except by mutual agreement of the parties in a written instrument executed by the parties hereto or their legal representatives.


19.3             Severability. In the event that any provision or portion of this Agreement shall be determined to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall be unaffected thereby and shall remain in full force and effect.
