Section 5.Restrictions on Transfer; Change in Control.

Section 6.Restrictive Agreement.  As a condition to the receipt of any Distributed Shares, the Director (or his or her legal representative or estate or any third party transferee), if the Company so requests, will execute an agreement in form satisfactory to the Company in which the Director or such other recipient of the shares represents that he or she is purchasing the shares for investment purposes, and not with a view to resale or distribution.  


Section 7.Adjustment.  In the event of any merger, reorganization, consolidation, recapitalization, extraordinary cash dividend, stock dividend, stock split or other change in corporate structure affecting the Stock, the number of Deferred Stock Units and Dividend Equivalent Units subject to this Agreement shall be equitably and proportionately adjusted (without duplication of Section 4) by the Committee in accordance with the Plan.
