3.    Restrictions. Prior to the vesting of the RSUs as described in Paragraph 4, the Grantee shall have no rights in the RSUs except as specifically provided herein.

Until such time as the shares of Stock underlying the RSUs are issued to the Grantee, (i) the Grantee shall have no voting rights with respect to the RSUs; and (ii) any dividends or other distributions paid with respect to the Stock shall accrue and shall be converted to additional RSUs based on the closing price of the Stock on any dividend distribution date, provided that such additional RSUs shall be subject to the same restrictions on transferability as are the RSUs with respect to which they were paid over the vesting







period, and shall vest and be paid to the Grantee only to the extent (and at the same time) that underlying RSUs vest, and are settled.

(b)    Restrictions on Transfer. The RSUs granted pursuant to this Agreement may not be sold, transferred, pledged, assigned, or otherwise alienated or hypothecated and any such attempt to transfer any RSU will not be honored.
