Section 3. Forfeiture in the Event of Termination of Employment.

Section 4. Dividends and Voting Rights. The Participant shall be entitled to receive any dividends paid with respect to the Restricted Shares; provided, however, that no dividends shall be payable to or for the benefit of a Participant with respect to record dates occurring prior to the Grant Date, or with respect to record dates occurring on or after the date, if any, on which the Participant has forfeited the Restricted Shares pursuant to Section 3 hereof. The Participant shall be entitled to vote the Restricted Shares to the same extent as would have been applicable to the Participant if the Participant was then vested in the Restricted Shares; provided, however, that the Participant shall not be entitled to vote the Restricted Shares with respect to record dates occurring prior to the Grant Date, or with respect to record dates occurring on or after the date, if any, on which the Participant has forfeited the Restricted Shares pursuant to Section 3 hereof.

 

Section 5. Adjustments. If at any time while the Award is outstanding, the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock is changed by reason of a reorganization, recapitalization, stock split or any other event described in Article V of the Plan, the number and/or kind of Restricted Shares covered by the Award shall be adjusted accordingly pursuant to the provisions of the Plan.

 

Section 6. Limitations on Restricted Shares. Restricted Shares may not be sold, assigned, transferred, pledged or otherwise encumbered until the Participant is vested in such shares in accordance with the provisions hereof.

 

Section 7. No Right to Continued Employment. Nothing in this Agreement shall confer upon a Participant who is an employee of the Company or any of its subsidiaries any right to continue in the employ of the Company or any of its subsidiaries or to interfere in any way with the right of the Company or any of its subsidiaries to terminate the Participant’s employment at any time.

 

Section 8. Deposit of Restricted Shares. Each certificate issued in respect of Restricted Shares granted under this Agreement shall be registered in the name of the Participant and shall be deposited with an escrow agent designated by the Board.
