NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of and mutual covenants set forth herein and for other valuable consideration hereinafter set forth, the parties agree as follows:


The Grant.  Subject to the conditions set forth below, the Company hereby grants you effective as of the Date of Grant set forth in the Notice of Grant, as a matter of separate inducement but not in lieu of any cash or other compensation for your services for the Company, an award (the “Award”) consisting of the aggregate number of Shares set forth in the Notice of Grant in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth herein and in the Plan, plus the additional rights to receive possible dividend equivalents, in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth herein.  


No Shareholder Rights.  The Restricted Share Units (“RSUs”) granted pursuant to this Agreement do not and shall not entitle you, or with respect to 102 Awards, the Trustee) to any rights of a holder of Shares prior to the date shares of Stock are issued to you (or the Trustee for 102 Awards) in settlement of the Award.  


Dividend Equivalents.  In the event that the Company declares and pays a dividend in respect of its outstanding Shares on or after the Date of Grant and, on the record date for such dividend, you hold RSUs granted pursuant to this Agreement that have not been settled, the Company shall pay to you an amount in cash equal to the cash dividends you would have received if you were the holder of record as of such record date, of the number of Shares related to the portion of your RSUs that have not been settled as of such record date, such payment (“Dividend Equivalents”) to be made on or promptly following the date that the Company pays such dividend (however, in no event shall the Dividend Equivalents be paid later than 30 days following the date on which the Company pays such dividend to its shareholders generally).  




Restrictions; Forfeiture.  The RSUs are restricted in that they may not be sold, transferred or otherwise alienated or hypothecated until Shares are issued pursuant to Section 6 following the removal or expiration of the restrictions as contemplated in Section 5 of this Agreement and as described in the Notice of Grant.  In the event you cease to be an employee of the Company or its Affiliates for any reason prior to the applicable date(s) and time(s) set forth in the Notice of Grant, the RSUs that are not Vested on the date of such cessation of employment or service shall be immediately forfeited. With respect to the Award, the Company may, in its sole discretion, determine that if you are on leave of absence for any reason you will be considered to still be in the employ of the Company or its Affiliates, provided that rights to the RSUs during a leave of absence will be limited to the extent to which those rights were Vested when the leave of absence began.


Expiration of Restrictions and Risk of Forfeiture.  The restrictions on the RSUs granted pursuant to this Agreement will expire and the RSUs will become nonforfeitable as set forth in the Notice of Grant, provided that you remain an employee of the Company or its Affiliates until the applicable dates and times set forth therein.  RSUs that have become vested and non-forfeitable as provided in this Agreement are referred to herein as “Vested.”  


Issuance of Stock.  Shares shall be issued to you in settlement of your RSUs to the extent your Award is Vested within 30 days following the date or event that caused the Award to become Vested.  At the time of settlement, the Company shall cause to be issued Shares registered in your name in payment of the Award. The Company shall evidence the Stock to be issued in payment of the RSUs in the manner it deems appropriate.  The value of any fractional RSU shall be rounded down at the time Shares are issued to you.  No fractional Shares, nor the cash value of any fractional Shares, will be issuable or payable to you pursuant to this Agreement.  The value of Shares shall not bear any interest owing to the passage of time.  Neither this Section 6 nor any action taken pursuant to or in accordance with this Section 6 shall be construed to create a trust or a funded or secured obligation of any kind.  


Payment of Taxes.  The Company, or with respect to 102 Awards, the Trustee, may require you to pay to the Company (or the Company’s Affiliate if you are an employee of an Affiliate of the Company or the Trustee for 102 Awards), an amount the Company deems necessary to satisfy its (or its Affiliate’s or the Trustee’s) current or future obligation to withhold federal, state or local income or other taxes that you incur as a result of the Award.  With respect to any tax withholding and to the extent permissible pursuant to Rule 16b-3 under the Exchange Act, you may (a) direct the Company to withhold from the Shares to be issued to you under this Agreement the number of Shares necessary or appropriate to satisfy the Company’s obligation to withhold taxes, which determination will be based on the Shares’ Fair Market Value at the time such determination is made; (b) deliver to the Company Shares sufficient to satisfy the Company’s tax withholding obligations, based on the Shares’ Fair Market Value at the time such determination is made; or (c) deliver cash to the Company sufficient to satisfy its tax withholding obligations.  If you desire to elect to use the stock withholding option described in subparagraph (a), you must make the election at the time and in the manner the Company prescribes.  The Company, in its discretion, may deny your request to satisfy its tax withholding obligations using a method described under subparagraph (a) or (b).  In the event the Company determines that the aggregate Fair Market Value of the Shares withheld as payment of any tax withholding obligation is insufficient to discharge that tax withholding obligation, then you must pay to the Company, in cash, the amount of that deficiency immediately upon the Company’s request.





Compliance with Securities Law.  Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, the issuance of Shares will be subject to compliance with all applicable requirements of federal, state, or foreign law with respect to such securities and with the requirements of any stock exchange or market system upon which the Shares may then be listed.  No Shares will be issued hereunder if such issuance would constitute a violation of any applicable federal, state, or foreign securities laws or other law or regulations or the requirements of any stock exchange or market system upon which the Shares may then be listed.  In addition, Shares will not be issued hereunder unless (a) a registration statement under the Securities Act, is at the time of issuance in effect with respect to the shares issued or (b) in the opinion of legal counsel to the Company, the shares issued may be issued in accordance with the terms of an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act.  The inability of the Company to obtain from any regulatory body having jurisdiction the authority, if any, deemed by the Company’s legal counsel to be necessary to the lawful issuance and sale of any shares subject to the Award will relieve the Company of any liability in respect of the failure to issue such shares as to which such requisite authority has not been obtained.  As a condition to any issuance hereunder, the Company may require you to satisfy any qualifications that may be necessary or appropriate to evidence compliance with any applicable law or regulation and to make any representation or warranty with respect to such compliance as may be requested by the Company.  From time to time, the Board and appropriate officers of the Company are authorized to take the actions necessary and appropriate to file required documents with governmental authorities, stock exchanges, and other appropriate Persons to make Shares available for issuance.


Legends.  The Company may at any time place legends referencing any restrictions imposed on the shares pursuant to Sections 4 and 8 of this Agreement on all certificates representing Shares issued with respect to this Award.


Right of the Company and Affiliates to Terminate Services.  Nothing in this Agreement confers upon you the right to continue in the employ of or performing services for the Company or any Affiliate, or interfere in any way with the rights of the Company or any Affiliate to terminate your employment or service relationship at any time.


Furnish Information.  You agree to furnish to the Company all information requested by the Company to enable it to comply with any reporting or other requirements imposed upon the Company by or under any applicable statute or regulation.


Remedies.  The parties to this Agreement shall be entitled to recover from each other reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with the successful enforcement of the terms and provisions of this Agreement whether by an action to enforce specific performance or for damages for its breach or otherwise.


No Liability for Good Faith Determinations.  The Company and the members of the Board shall not be liable for any act, omission or determination taken or made in good faith with respect to this Agreement or the RSUs granted hereunder.





Execution of Receipts and Releases.  Any payment of cash or any issuance or transfer of RSUs or other property to you, or to your legal representative, heir, legatee or distributee, in accordance with the provisions hereof, will, to the extent thereof, be in full satisfaction of all claims of such Persons hereunder. In addition, the Company may require you or your legal representative, heir, legatee or distributee, as a condition precedent to such payment or issuance, to execute a general release of all claims in favor of the Company, any Affiliate and the employees, officers, stockholders or board members of the foregoing in such form as the Company may determine; provided, however, that any review period under such release will not modify the date of settlement with respect to your Award.


No Guarantee of Interests.  The Board and the Company do not guarantee the Stock of the Company from loss or depreciation.


Company Records.  Records of the Company or its Affiliates regarding your period of service, termination of service and the reason(s) therefor, and other matters shall be conclusive for all purposes hereunder, unless determined by the Company to be incorrect.


Notice.  All notices required or permitted under this Agreement must be in writing and personally delivered or sent by mail and shall be deemed to be delivered on the date on which it is actually received by the person to whom it is properly addressed or if earlier the date it is sent via certified United States mail.


Waiver of Notice.  Any person entitled to notice hereunder may waive such notice in writing.

For the avoidance of doubt, nothing herein shall prevent you from making a disclosure that: (i) is made (A) in confidence to a federal, state or local government official, either directly or indirectly, or to an attorney; and (B) solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law; or (ii) is made in a complaint or other document filed in a lawsuit or other proceeding, if such filing is made under seal. Further, an individual who files a lawsuit for retaliation by an employer of reporting a suspected violation of law may make disclosures without violating this Section 19 to the attorney of the individual and use such information in the court proceeding.

Severability.  If any provision of this Agreement is held to be illegal or invalid for any reason, the illegality or invalidity shall not affect the remaining provisions hereof, but such provision shall be fully severable and this Agreement shall be construed and enforced as if the illegal or invalid provision had never been included herein.

Amendment.  This Agreement may be amended the Board or by the Committee at any time (a) if the Board or the Committee determines, in its sole discretion, that amendment is necessary or advisable in light of any addition to or change in any federal or state, tax or securities law or other law or regulation, which change occurs after the Date of Grant and by its terms applies to the Award; or (b) other than in the circumstances described in clause (a) or provided in the Plan, with your consent.  


Consent to Delaware Jurisdiction and Venue.  You hereby consent and agree that the courts located in Delaware shall have exclusive jurisdiction and proper venue with respect to any dispute between you and the Company arising in connection with the Award or this Agreement.  In any dispute with the Company, you will not raise, and you hereby expressly waive, any objection or defense to any such jurisdiction as an inconvenient forum.
