Daily Reference Amount for such Restatement Date + Adjustment Amount for such Restatement Date

Restatement Price for such Restatement Date


WHERE:

Daily Reference Amount” means, for any Restatement Date, the Potential Daily Reference Amount for such Restatement Date; provided that, if such Restatement Date is a Disrupted Day in whole or in part, the Calculation Agent may reduce the Potential Daily Reference Amount for such Restatement Date in the same proportion as the reduction in the Restated Existing Options for such Restatement Date.

Adjustment Amount” means, for any Restatement Date, the product (which may be negative) of (i) the number of Restated Existing Options for such Restatement Date, (ii) 37.5% and (iii) the Price Difference for such Restatement Date.

Restated Existing Options” means, for any Restatement Date, the Potential Existing Options for such Restatement Date; provided that, if such Restatement Date is a Disrupted Day in whole or in part, the Calculation Agent may reduce the number of Restated Existing Options for such Restatement Date as it determines appropriate taking into account the nature and duration of the Market Disruption Event.

Price Difference” means, for any Restatement Date, the Restatement Price for such Restatement Date minus USD 12.60.

Restatement Price” means, for any Restatement Date, the volume-weighted average price per Share on such Restatement Date for the period from 9:30 a.m. (New York time) to 3:50 p.m. (New York time) as displayed under the heading “Bloomberg VWAP” on Bloomberg page “CX US <equity> VAP” (or any successor thereto), or if such price is not so reported on such Restatement Date for any reason or is, in the Calculation Agent’s reasonable discretion following notice in reasonable detail to, and consultation with, Cemex, erroneous, or such Restatement Date is a Disrupted Day in whole or in part, the VWAP Price shall be as reasonably determined by the Calculation Agent using a substantially similar volume-weighted method taking into account, if applicable, the nature and duration of the Market Disruption Event.

(c) Promptly following the last Potential Restatement Date:

(1) Should any Potential Existing Options not become Restated Existing Options, Citibank shall provide Cemex a revised table substantially in the form included in the Capped Call Confirmation to reflect the aggregate number of remaining Existing Options under the Capped Call Agreement, which shall replace in its entirety the table currently included in the Capped Call Confirmation and shall be binding absent manifest error. With respect to each Tranche, the Number of Options shall be equal to the aggregate number of remaining Existing Options divided by the number of Tranches (rounded using a rounding convention determined by Citibank, with any remainder allocated to the final Tranche). The parties acknowledge and agree that the revised table shall reflect the actual Number of Options as of the date hereof, taking into account any adjustments pursuant to the Capped Call Agreement prior to such date.

(2) Citibank shall provide Cemex a properly completed confirmation, substantially in the form attached hereto as Annex A, with respect to the Restated Options (the “New Confirmation”). With respect to each Tranche, the Number of Options shall be equal to the Aggregate Number of Restated Options divided by the number of Tranches (rounded using a rounding convention determined by Citibank, with any remainder allocated to the final Tranche). The parties acknowledge and agree that the New Confirmation shall reflect the actual Number of Options as of the Amendment and Restatement Date set forth in the New Confirmation, taking into account any adjustments pursuant to the Master Confirmation prior to such date. Cemex agrees to execute and deliver to Citibank the New Confirmation for the Restated Options promptly following receipt thereof; provided that the failure of Cemex to execute and deliver to Citibank the New Confirmation shall not affect the effectiveness of the amendment and restatement of the Restated Existing Options into the Restated Options.

 

2. Representations, Warranties and Agreements

Cemex is deemed to (i) repeat the representations, warranties and agreements in Section 11(b) of the Master Confirmation, interpreted as if the date hereof were the Trade Date and the Effective Date and (ii) represent and warrant that no Event of Default, Potential Event of Default or Termination Event with respect to Cemex has occurred or will occur as a result of the amendment and restatement contemplated hereby.
