Notwithstanding anything set forth herein to the contrary and except as otherwise determined by the general partner of Parent, any time-based Class B Units that are unvested as of the time of a “Sale Transaction” (as defined in the Second Amended and Restated Limited Partnership Agreement of Parent) will not vest upon the Sale Transaction, but will remain outstanding or convert into substantially equivalent awards and will be subject to vesting on the six month anniversary of the Sale Transaction, subject to your continued employment through such date or an earlier termination of your employment without Cause (as defined in Annex A).
