NOW, THEREFORE, the parties hereto, intending to be legally bound, hereby agree that as of the Grant Date, the Company hereby grants Optionee an option (the “Option”) to purchase from it, upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement and the Plan, that number of shares of the authorized and unissued Common Stock of the Company as is set forth on Schedule A hereto.
