 Section 3.1.     Vesting of RSUs

Board following the Grant Date (such date, the “Annual Meeting Date”) or such earlier date as the Director experiences a Termination of Service by reason of the Director’s death, Disability or Retirement. 

(b)If, prior to the Annual Meeting Date, the Director experiences a Termination of Service other than by reason of (i) the Director’s death, Disability or Retirement or (ii) a Termination of Service by the Company, a Parent Corporation or a Subsidiary for Cause, such Director shall immediately vest in a number of RSUs equal to the total number of RSUs granted hereby multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days from the Grant Date to the date of the Termination of Service and the denominator of which is the number of days from the Grant Date to the Annual Meeting Date.

 Section 4.5.     Rights as Stockholder

             The Director shall not, by virtue of any RSU granted hereby, be entitled to vote in any Company election, receive any dividend in respect of the Shares subject to any RSU (except as provided under Section 3.5 above) or exercise any other rights of a stockholder of the Company.  The RSUs shall not confer upon the Director any rights of a stockholder of the Company unless and until such RSUs have vested and Shares have been distributed in respect of such RSUs.


 Section 4.6.     Titles

             Titles are provided herein for convenience only and are not to serve as a basis for interpretation or construction of this Agreement.

 Section 4.7.     Conformity to Laws

             The Director acknowledges that the Plan and this Agreement are intended to conform to the extent necessary with all provisions of applicable law, including without limitation the provisions of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act, and any and all regulations and rules promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission thereunder, including without limitation Rule 16b-3 of the Exchange Act.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, this Agreement shall be administered, and the RSUs and Dividend Equivalents shall be granted, only in such a manner as to conform to such laws, rules and regulations.  To the extent permitted by applicable law, this Agreement and the RSUs and Dividend Equivalents granted hereunder shall be deemed amended to the extent necessary to conform to such laws, rules and regulations.

Section 4.8.     Section 409A

(a)This Agreement shall be interpreted in accordance with the requirements of Section 409A of the Code and the Treasury Regulations relating thereto (together, “Section 409A”).  Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement, the Company may adopt such amendments to this Agreement or adopt other policies and procedures (including amendments, policies and procedures with retroactive effect), or take any other actions, that the Administrator determines are necessary or appropriate to avoid the imposition of taxes under Section 409A, provided, however, that this Section 4.8 shall not create an obligation on the part of the Company to adopt any such amendment, policy or procedure or take any such other action, nor shall the Company have any liability for failing to do so. To the extent that any payment window spans two calendar years, the Director shall have no discretion over or ability to control the actual year in which payment is made. 

(b)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, no amounts shall be paid to the Director under this Agreement during the six (6)-month period following the Director’s “separation from service” to the extent that the Administrator determines that the Director is a “specified employee” (each within the meaning of Section 409A) at the time of such separation from service and that paying such amounts at the time or times indicated in this Agreement would be a prohibited distribution under Section 409A(a)(2)(b)(i).  If the payment of any such amounts is delayed as a result of the previous sentence, then on the first business day following the end of such six (6)-month period (or such earlier date upon which such amount can be paid under Section 409A without being subject to such additional taxes), the Company shall pay to the Director in a lump-sum all amounts that would have otherwise been payable to the Director during such six (6)-month period under this Agreement.  For the avoidance of doubt, any amounts payable upon a Termination of Service shall only be paid upon the Director’s “separation from service” (within the meaning of Section 409A).

(c)Dividend Equivalents and any amounts that may become distributable in respect thereof shall be treated separately from the RSUs and the rights arising in connection therewith for purposes of the designation of time and form of payments required by Section 409A.  

Section 4.9.     Amendments

             This Agreement may be amended without the consent of the Director, except that no amendment of this Agreement shall, without the consent of the Director, impair any rights of the Director under this Agreement.

Section 4.10. Tax Withholding


To the extent the Company, any Parent Corporation or a Subsidiary has any withholding obligations for the RSUs and/or Dividend Equivalents upon grant, vesting or payment hereunder, the Company will, unless the Director elects otherwise, automatically retain a portion of the Shares (or cash, as applicable) otherwise deliverable in respect of such vested RSUs and corresponding Dividend Equivalents with an aggregate Fair Market Value (determined on the date such withholding obligation arises) equal to the amount that must be withheld by the Company, a Parent Corporation or a Subsidiary for federal, state and/or local tax purposes.  The Director may, however, elect to pay the Company, any Parent Corporation or a Subsidiary the amount of any required withholdings in cash or by check and not have Shares (or cash, as applicable) withheld.  

Section 4.11.  Clawback

Notwithstanding anything contained in the Agreement to the contrary, all RSUs and Dividend Equivalents awarded under this Agreement, and any Shares issued upon settlement hereunder shall be subject to forfeiture, or repayment pursuant to the terms of any policy that the Company may implement in compliance with the requirements of applicable law, including without limitation the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and any rules or regulations promulgated thereunder.

 Section 5.12.   Governing Law

             This Agreement shall be administered, interpreted and enforced under the internal laws of the State of Delaware without regard to conflicts of laws thereof.

            IN WITNESS HEREOF, this Agreement has been executed and delivered by the parties hereto.
