Exercise of Option Sample Clauses


Exercise of Option. The Over-allotment Option granted pursuant to Section 1.2.1 hereof may be exercised by the Representative as to all (at any time) or any part (from time to time) of the Option Shares within 45 days after the Effective Date. The Underwriters shall not be under any obligation to purchase any Option Shares prior to the exercise of the Over-allotment Option. The Over-allotment Option granted hereby may be exercised by the giving of oral notice to the Company from the Representative, which must be confirmed in writing by overnight mail or facsimile or other electronic transmission setting forth the number of Option Shares to be purchased and the date and time for delivery of and payment for the Option Shares (the “Option Closing Date”), which shall not be later than five (5) full Business Days after the date of the notice or such other time as shall be agreed upon by the Company and the Representative, at the offices of Representative Counsel or at such other place (including remotely by facsimile or other electronic transmission) as shall be agreed upon by the Company and the Representative. If such delivery and payment for the Option Shares does not occur on the Closing Date, the Option Closing Date will be as set forth in the notice. Upon exercise of the Over-allotment Option with respect to all or any portion of the Option Shares, subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, (i) the Company shall become obligated to sell to the Underwriters the number of Option Shares specified in such notice and (ii) each of the Underwriters, acting severally and not jointly, shall purchase that portion of the total number of Option Shares then being purchased as set forth in Schedule 1 opposite the name of such Underwriter.


Exercise of Option. Options may be exercised by delivery to the Company of a written notice of exercise signed by the proper person or by any other form of notice (including electronic notice) approved by the Board together with payment in full as specified in Section 5(f) for the number of shares for which the Option is exercised.

Exercise of Option. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Plan and the option agreements, an option granted hereunder shall, to the extent then exercisable, be exercisable in whole or in part by giving written notice to the Company by mail or in person addressed to Avici Systems Inc., at its principal executive offices, stating the number of shares with respect to which the option is being exercised, accompanied by payment in full for such shares. Payment may be (a) in United States dollars in cash or by check, (b) in whole or in part in shares of the Common Stock of the Company already owned by the person or persons exercising the option or shares subject to the option being exercised (subject to such restrictions and guidelines as the Board may adopt from time to time), valued at fair market value determined in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 5 or (c) consistent with applicable law, through the delivery of an assignment to the Company of a sufficient amount of the proceeds from the sale of the Common Stock acquired upon exercise of the option and an authorization to the broker or selling agent to pay that amount to the Company, which sale shall be at the participant’s direction at the time of exercise. There shall be no such exercise at any one time as to fewer than twenty-five (25) shares or all of the remaining shares then purchasable by the person or persons exercising the option, if fewer than twenty-five (25) shares. The Company’s transfer agent shall, on behalf of the Company, prepare a certificate or certificates representing such shares acquired pursuant to exercise of the option, shall register the optionee as the owner of such shares on the books of the Company and shall cause the fully executed certificate(s) representing such shares to be delivered to the optionee as soon as practicable after payment of the option price in full. The holder of an option shall not have any rights of a stockholder with respect to the shares covered by the option, except to the extent that one or more certificates for such shares shall be delivered to him or her upon the due exercise of the option.

Exercise of Option. Subject to the terms of the Plan and this Agreement, the Option shall become exercisable on the date or dates, and subject to such conditions, as are set forth on Schedule A attached hereto. To the extent that an Option which is exercisable is not exercised, such Option shall accumulate and be exercisable by the Participant in whole or in part at any time prior to expiration of the Option, subject to the terms of the Plan and this Agreement. The Participant expressly acknowledges that the Option may vest and be exercisable only upon such terms and conditions as are provided in this Agreement and the Plan. Upon the exercise of an Option in whole or in part and payment of the Option Price in accordance with the provisions of the Plan and this Agreement, the Corporation shall, as soon thereafter as practicable, deliver to the Participant a certificate or certificates for the Shares purchased. Payment of the Option Price may be made (i) in cash or by cash equivalent; and, where permitted by applicable law, payment may also be made (ii) by delivery (by either actual delivery or attestation) of shares of Common Stock owned by the Participant (subject to such terms and conditions, if any, as may be determined by the Administrator); (iii) by shares of Common Stock withheld upon exercise but only if and to the extent that payment by such method does not result in variable accounting or other accounting consequences deemed unacceptable to the Corporation; (iv) in the event that a Public Market (as defined in the Plan) for the Common Stock exists, by delivery of written notice of exercise to the Corporation and delivery to a broker of written notice of exercise and irrevocable instructions to promptly deliver to the Corporation the amount of sale or loan proceeds to pay the Option Price; (v) by such other payment methods as may be approved by the Administrator and which are acceptable under applicable law; or (vi) by any combination of the foregoing methods. Shares delivered or withheld in payment of the Option Price shall be valued at their Fair Market Value on the date of exercise, determined in accordance with the terms of the Plan.

Exercise of Option. Unless a participant withdraws from the Plan as provided in Section 10, his or her option for the purchase of Shares will be exercised automatically on each Purchase Date of an Offering Period, and the maximum number of full Shares subject to the option will be purchased at the applicable Purchase Price with the accumulated Contributions in his or her account. No fractional Shares shall be issued. The Shares purchased upon exercise of an option hereunder shall be deemed to be transferred to the participant on the Purchase Date. During his or her lifetime, a participant’s option to purchase Shares hereunder is exercisable only by him or her.

Exercise of Option. This option may be exercised by written notice (substantially in the form as that which is attached as Exhibit A) delivered to the Bancorp stating the number of shares with respect to which this option is being exercised, together with (a) cash in the amount of the purchase price of such shares, or (b) subject to applicable law, with the Bancorp’s stock previously acquired by Optionee and held by Optionee for a period of at least six months. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event Optionee does exercise the option by utilizing (b) above, Optionee should obtain tax advice as to the consequences of such action. Not less than ten (10) shares may be purchased at any one time unless the number purchased is the total number which may be purchased under this option and in no event may the option be exercised with respect to fractional shares. Upon exercise, Optionee shall make appropriate arrangements and shall be responsible for the withholding of any federal and state taxes then due.

Exercise of Option. This Option shall be exercisable during its term in accordance with the Vesting/Exercise Schedule set out in the Notice and with the provisions of Section 10 of the Plan as follows:


Exercise of Option. Securities of any series subject to repayment at the option of the Holders thereof will contain an “Option to Elect Repayment” form on the reverse of such Securities. To be repaid at the option of the Holder, any Security so providing for such repayment, with the “Option to Elect Repayment” form on the reverse of such Security duly completed by the Holder, must be received by the Company at the Place of Payment therefor specified in the terms of such Security (or at such other place or places of which the Company shall from time to time notify the Holders of such Securities) not earlier than 30 days nor later than 15 days prior to the Repayment Date. If less than the entire principal amount of such Security is to be repaid in accordance with the terms of such Security, the principal amount of such Security to be repaid, in increments of $1,000 unless otherwise specified in the terms of such Security, and the denomination or denominations of the Security or Securities to be issued to the Holder for the portion of the principal amount of such Security surrendered that is not to be repaid must be specified. The principal amount of any Security providing for repayment at the option of the Holder thereof may not be repaid in part, if, following such repayment, the unpaid principal amount of such Security would be less than the minimum authorized denomination of Securities of the series of which such Security to be repaid is a part. Except as otherwise may be provided by the terms of any Security providing for repayment at the option of the Holder thereof, exercise of the repayment option by the Holder shall be irrevocable unless waived by the Company.

Exercise of Option. This Option shall be exercisable during its term in accordance with the provisions of Section 9 of the Plan as follows:

Exercise of Option. Unless a Participant withdraws from the Plan as provided in Section 10, the Participant’s Option for the purchase of shares of Common Stock will be exercised automatically on each Exercise Date, by applying the accumulated payroll deductions in the Participant’s account to purchase the number of full shares subject to the Option by dividing such Participant’s payroll deductions accumulated prior to such Exercise Date and retained in the Participant’s account as of the Exercise Date by the applicable Purchase Price. No fractional shares will be purchased; any payroll deductions accumulated in a Participant’s account which are not sufficient to purchase a full share will be carried over to the next Purchase Period or Offer Period, whichever applies, or returned to the Participant, if the Participant withdraws from the Plan. In addition, any amount remaining in a Participant’s account following the purchase of shares on the Exercise Date due to the application of Section 423(b)(8) of the Code, or Sections 3 or 7, will be returned to the Participant and will not be carried over to the next Offer Period or Purchase Period. During a Participant’s lifetime, a Participant’s Option to purchase shares hereunder is exercisable only by the Participant.
