3.1 Restriction on Transfer. Prior to the termination of this Agreement, such Stockholder shall not sell, transfer, tender, assign, hypothecate or otherwise dispose of, grant any proxy to, deposit any Shares into a voting trust or enter into a voting trust agreement with respect to any Shares (each, a Transfer) (except in connection with the Combination or the performance of its obligations under this Agreement), other than Transfers (a) with Parents prior written consent; (b) by operation of Law or by will, intestacy or other similar applicable Law upon such Stockholders death; (c) to any Person if and to the extent required by any non-consensual Order, or by divorce decree; (d) pursuant to a Rule 10b5-1 trading plan in effect as of the date of this Agreement; (e) pursuant to the exercise of any Company Options in order to pay the exercise price of such Company Options or satisfy taxes applicable thereto; (f) upon the

4.4 No Agreement Until Executed; No Ownership Rights. Irrespective of negotiations among the parties or the exchanging of drafts of this Agreement, this Agreement shall not constitute or be deemed to evidence a contract, agreement, arrangement or understanding between the parties unless and until (a) the Board of Directors of the Company has approved, for purposes of any applicable anti-takeover laws and regulations, and any applicable provision of the Company Organizational Documents, this Agreement and the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement and this Agreement; (b) the Merger Agreement is executed by all parties thereto; and (c) this Agreement is executed by all parties hereto.
