Non-Competition. In consideration of the enhanced severance protections and other consideration provided to the Executive pursuant to this Agreement, during the Restricted Period (as defined below), the Executive shall not, directly or indirectly, either for himself or any other person, own, manage, control, materially participate in, invest in, loan money to, permit his name to be used by, act as consultant or advisor to, render services for (alone or in association with any person, firm, corporation or other business organization) or otherwise assist in any manner any business which is a competitor of or is in the same or substantially similar line of business as a portion of the Company’s business or of the business of any subsidiary of the Company (collectively, a “Competitor”). Notwithstanding the forgoing, nothing herein shall prohibit the Executive from being a passive owner of not more than five percent (5%) of the equity securities of a Competitor that is publicly traded, so long as he has no active participation in the business of such Competitor. For purposes hereof, the term “Restricted Period” means the period commencing with the Effective Date and ending, unless tolled in accordance with this Section 9, on the date which is twelve (12) months after the date of termination (for any reason) of the Executive’s employment with the Company.

While the Executive is employed and for a period following the termination of the Executive’s employment equal to the Non-Competition Restricted Period (as defined below), the Executive shall not, whether individually as a director, manager, member, stockholder, partner, owner, employee, consultant or agent of any business, or in any other capacity, other than on behalf of the Company, organize, establish, own, operate, manage, control, engage in, participate in, invest in, permit his name to be used by, act as a consultant or advisor to, render services for (alone or in association with any person, firm, corporation or business organization), or otherwise assist any person or entity that engages in or owns, invests in, operates, manages or controls any venture or enterprise which engages or proposes to engage in any business conducted by the Company or its subsidiaries (x) on the date of the Executive’s termination of employment (including, without limitation, any business which the Company or its subsidiaries has specific plans to conduct in the future and as to which the Executive is aware) or (y) within twelve (12) months prior to the Executive’s termination of employment with the Company, in each case, in the geographic locations where the Company or its subsidiaries engage or propose to engage in such business (the “Competitive Business”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Executive may, directly or indirectly own, solely as an investment, securities of any firm, partnership, joint venture, association, corporation or other business organization, entity or enterprise engaged in the business of the Company which are publicly traded on a national or regional stock exchange or on the over-the-counter market if the Executive is not a controlling person of, or a member of a group which controls, such entity and does not directly or indirectly own 5% or more of any class of securities of such entity. Should any provision of this Section 5.2 conflict with the provisions of any other written agreement between the Company and the Executive, this Section 5.2 shall govern. For the purposes of this Employment Agreement, the term Non-Competition Restricted Period shall mean (x) the period the Executive is entitled to receive payments or benefits pursuant to Section 4.4 hereof, if the Executive’s employment terminates without Cause or if the Executive terminates his employment for Good Reason and (y) a period of one year if the executive’s employment hereunder ...

The Executive agrees that the Restricted Area is reasonable taking into consideration the nature and scope of the operations of the Company and its Affiliates in the Business and the Executive’s role in such operations. It shall not be a violation of this Section 6(b) for the Executive to own less than one percent (1%) of the outstanding shares of a corporation that is engaged in the Business whose shares are listed on a national stock exchange or traded in accordance with the automated quotation system of the National Association of Securities Dealers.

The provisions of subparagraphs (i), (ii), (iii), and (iv) above are separate and distinct commitments independent of each of the other subparagraphs.

Non-Competition. Except as may otherwise be approved by the Board, during the term of Executive’s employment, Executive shall not have any ownership interest (of record or beneficial) in, or have any interest as an employee, salesman, consultant, officer or director in, or otherwise aid or assist in any manner, any firm, corporation, partnership, proprietorship or other business that engages in any county, city or part thereof in the United States and/or any foreign country in a business which competes directly or indirectly (as determined by the Board) with the Company’s business in such county, city or part thereof, so long as the Company, or any successor in interest of the Company to the business and goodwill of the Company, remains engaged in such business in such county, city or part thereof or continues to solicit customers or potential customers therein; provided, however, that Executive may own, directly or indirectly, solely as an investment, securities of any entity which are traded on any national securities exchange if Executive (x) is not a controlling person of, or a member of a group which controls, such entity; or (y) does not, directly or indirectly, own one percent (1%) or more of any class of securities of any such entity.

It is further recognized and agreed that, even though an activity may not be restricted under the foregoing provision, Employee shall not during the term of this Agreement and for a period of 12 months following termination of this Agreement, regardless of how such termination may be brought about, provide any services to any person or entity which may be used against, or in conflict with the interests of, the Company or its customers or clients.

Non-Competition. The Participant acknowledges and recognizes the highly competitive nature of the Business, the valuable Confidential Information to which the Participant has had and will continue to have access, and the customer goodwill associated with the ongoing business of the Company. Accordingly, the Participant agrees that during the period the Participant is employed by the Company or any of its Affiliates and for a period of twelve (12) months following the termination of the Participant’s employment for any reason, the Participant will not, anywhere in the world, directly or indirectly, alone or in conjunction with any other person or entity: (i) engage in any business for Participant’s own account that competes with the Business; (ii) enter the employ of, or render any services, whether as employee, consultant, independent contractor or otherwise, to any person or entity engaged in any business that competes with the Business; or (iii) acquire a financial interest in, or otherwise become involved with, any person or entity engaged in any business that competes with the Business, as an individual, partner, shareholder, officer, director, principal, agent, trustee, or consultant.

Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, this Section 6(c) shall not prevent Executive from (i) acquiring as an investment securities representing not more than one percent (1%) of the outstanding voting securities of any publicly held corporation engaged in the Business or from indirectly acquiring securities of any company engaged in the Business as a result of being a passive investor in any mutual fund, hedge fund, private equity fund, or similar pooled account so long as Executive’s interest therein is less than one percent (1%) and he/she has no role in selecting, managing or advising with respect to investments thereof, or (ii) providing services to any entity whose primary business activity is not an element of the Business or a subsidiary, division or unit of any entity that engages in the Business so long as Executive and such subsidiary, division or unit does not engage in the Business so long as Executive provides written notice to the Company at least ten (10) business days prior to the commencement of providing any services to such subsidiary, division or unit.
