(a) Until this Option expires, you may exercise it as to the number of Optioned Shares which have vested (“Vested Shares”), in full or in part, at any time on or after the applicable exercise date or dates identified in the remainder of this Section. However, during any period that this Option remains outstanding after your employment or other association with the Company and its Affiliates ends other than by reason of Retirement, you may exercise it only as to Optioned Shares which are Vested Shares immediately prior to the end of your employment or other association.
