Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein shall have the respective meanings ascribed to them in the Plan (as defined below).

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Plan is hereby amended as set forth herein, effective as of the date of the 2020 Annual Meeting, provided that it is approved by the Company’s stockholders on that date.
Section 3.1 (a). Section 3.1(a) of the Plan is hereby deleted and replaced in its entirety with the following:
(a) Subject to Section 3.1(b) and Section 12.2 hereof, the aggregate number of Shares which may be issued or transferred pursuant to Awards under the Plan is 9,000,000 Shares (the “Share Limit”). In order that the applicable regulations under the Code relating to Incentive Stock Options be satisfied, the maximum number of Shares that may be issued under the Plan upon the exercise of Incentive Stock Options shall be 9,000,000 Shares. Each LTIP Unit issued pursuant to an Award shall count as one Share for purposes of calculating the aggregate number of Shares available for issuance under the Plan as set forth in this Section 3.1(a) and for purposes of calculating the Individual Award Limits set forth in Section 3.3 hereof
2. Section 3.1(d). The following new Section 3.1(d) is hereby added to the Plan:

For purposes of Awards granted to Non-Employee Directors, a vesting period will be deemed to be one year if it runs from the date of one annual meeting of the Company’s stockholders to the next annual meeting of the Company’s stockholders. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Section 3.1(d) shall preclude or limit any Award or other arrangement (or any action by the Committee) from providing for accelerated vesting of such Award in connection with or following a Participant’s death, disability, retirement or involuntary termination or in connection with the occurrence of a Change in Control.”
