Right to Purchase Executive Units Upon Termination of Employment. (a) Repurchase Option. In the event that Executive is no longer employed by the Company or any of its subsidiaries for any reason (the date of such termination being referred to herein as the "Termination Date"), the Executive Units, whether held by Executive or one or more Permitted Transferees, will be subject to repurchase by the Company and the Investors pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 2 (the "Repurchase Option"). (b) Termination Other than for Cause or Voluntary Termination. If Executive is no longer employed by the Company or any of its subsidiaries as a result of Executive's death or permanent disability (as determined by the Board in its good faith judgment) or Executive's termination by the Company or any of its subsidiaries without Cause, then on or after the Termination Date, the Company may elect to purchase all or any portion of the Executive Units at a price per Unit equal to the Fair Market Value thereof (x) as determined on the Termination Date, if the Repurchase Notice (as defined in paragraph (d) below) has been delivered within three months after the Termination Date, or (y) as determined as of a date determined by the Board within thirty (30) days prior to the delivery of the Repurchase Notice, if the Repurchase Notice is delivered after the third month following the Termination Date.

(d) Repurchase Procedures. The Company may elect to exercise the right to purchase all or any portion of the Executive Units pursuant to the Repurchase Option by delivering written notice (the "Repurchase Notice") to the holder or holders of Executive Units within 180 days after Executive's Termination Date. The Repurchase Notice will set forth the number of Executive Units to be acquired from such holder(s), the aggregate consideration to be paid for 2 such Units and the time and place for the closing of the transaction. If any of the Executive Units are held by Permitted Transferees of Executive, the Company shall purchase the Units elected to be purchased from such holder(s) of Executive Units pro rata according to the number of Executive Units held by such holder(s) at the time of delivery of such Repurchase Notice (determined as nearly as practicable to the nearest unit). (e) Investor's Rights. (i) If for any reason the Company does not elect to purchase all of the Executive Units pursuant to the Repurchase Option prior to the 180th day following the Termination Date, the Investors will be entitled to exercise the Repurchase Option, in the manner set forth in this Section 2, for the Executive Units the Company has not elected to purchase (the "Available Units"). As soon as practicable, but in any event within thirty (30) days after the Company determines that there will be any Available Units, the Company will deliver written notice (the "Option Notice") to the Investors setting forth the number of Available Units and the price for each Available Unit. (ii) Each of the Investors will initially be permitted to purchase up to its pro rata share (based upon the number of Class L Units and Class A Units then held by such Investors) of any class of the Available Units by delivering written notice to the Company within twenty (20) days after receipt of the Option Notice from the Company (such 20-day period being referred to herein as the "Investor Election Period"). (iii) As soon as practicable, but in any event within five (5) days after the expiration of the Investor Election Period, the Company will, if necessary, notify the Investors electing to purchase Available Units of any Available Units which Investors have not elected to purchase and each of the electing Investors will be entitled to purchase any number of the remaining Available Units (the "Second Option Notice"); provided, that if in the aggregate such Investors elect to purchase more than the remaining Available Units, such remaining Available Units of a particular class purchased by each such Investor will be reduced on a pro rata basis based upon the number of Class L Units and Class A Units then held by such Investors. Each Investor may elect to purchase any of the remaining Available Units available to such Investor by delivering written notice to the Company within five (5) days after the delivery of the Second Option Notice (such 5-day period being referred to herein as the "Second Period"). (iv) As soon as practicable, but in any event within five (5) business days after the expiration of the Investor Election Period or the Second Period (if any), the Company will, if necessary, notify the holder(s) of Executive Units as to the number of Executive Units being purchased from the holder(s) by the Investors (the "Supplemental Repurchase Notice").
