11.    Issuance of Shares.

(a) General Payment Terms. Upon the expiration of the Restricted Period (unless otherwise elected by the Participant pursuant to a properly executed election form, as provided in Section 11(b) below) and subject to Sections 5 and 10 and payment by the Participant of any applicable withholding taxes, the Corporation shall, as soon as reasonably practicable (and in any event within 75 days of the expiration of the Restricted Period), either (a) issue the Shares to the Participant, free and clear of all restrictions, or (b) in the sole discretion of the Committee, make a payment of cash to the Participant (or to the executors or administrators of Participant’s estate in the event of the Participant’s death) equal to the Fair Market Value of the Shares that would otherwise have been issued pursuant to (a) above; provided, that if the expiration of the Restricted Period results from a Section 409A Change in Control Event, then notwithstanding the foregoing (but subject to Section 11(b) below), the Shares shall be issued within 30 days of the Section 409A Change in Control Event; provided further, that in the event the Participant is a Specified Employee and the expiration of the Restricted Period does not result from the death of the Participant, the Participant’s “permanent disability” (as defined in Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-3(i)(4)) or a Section 409A Change in Control Event, then notwithstanding the foregoing, the Shares shall be issued as soon as reasonably practicable following (and not prior to) the date that is six months after the expiration of the Restricted Period (and in any event within 75 days after such date). The Corporation may not be required to deliver any fractional Shares, but shall pay, in lieu thereof, the Fair Market Value (as defined in the Plan) thereof as of the date on which the Shares first become issuable under this Section. The Corporation shall pay any costs incurred in connection with issuing the Shares. Upon the issuance of the Shares to the Participant, the Participant’s Unit Account shall be eliminated. Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section, if the Restricted Units have been transferred in accordance with the provisions of Section 4 prior to the issuance of the Shares to the Participant in accordance with this Section, then the issuance of the Shares and any payment in lieu of fractional Shares shall be made to the transferee(s).

(b) Permitted Elections. Nothwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Participant may elect in writing (on a form approved by the Corporation) to designate the time and form of payment of the Restricted Units issuable with respect to any vested Restricted Units, provided that such election is made in accordance with the requirements of Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-2(a)(5). Such deferral election shall be irrevocable and shall designate the time and form of payment under which the Restricted Units are payable from either (i) the Participant’s Separation from Service or (2) the earlier of the Participant’s Separation from Service or a Section 409A Change in Control Event and paid in the form of either (x) a single lump sum or (y) substantially equal annual installments over a period of 1 to 15 years. Any deferral elections which fail to meet the requirements of Treasury Regulation 1.409A-2(a)(5) or are deemed to be ineffective thereunder, or alternatively, as otherwise permitted by Treasury Regulation 1.409A-2(a), shall be void and not given effect. In the event the Participant makes a deferral

3




election pursuant to this Section 11(b), the Participant may subsequently modify such election as to the date on which such Units hereunder are payable, provided such subsequent election meets the requirements of Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-2(b).

12.    Subsidiary.
