4.        Notice of and Requirements With Respect to Exercise.
 
(a)        The Option shall be exercised only by written Notice of Exercise delivered to the Company, signed by the Optionee or, in the event of the Optionee’s death or incompetence, by the person or persons entitled to exercise the same under Paragraph 5 hereof, specifying the number of shares in respect of which the Option is being exercised. The Option shall be exercised only with respect to whole shares and no fractional shares will be issued. Such Notice of Exercise shall be in the form annexed hereto as Exhibit B, subject to such changes as may be prescribed from time to time and communicated to the Optionee.  The exercise of the Option shall not be deemed to be complete until full compliance with subparagraphs (a), (b), (c) and (d) of the Paragraph 4 and the Company shall have no obligation to issue any shares in the absence of such compliance.
 
(b)        Due exercise of the Option is conditioned upon the payment in full of the option price of the shares with respect to which the Option is exercised and any applicable taxes and withholding, and such payment shall accompany the Notice of Exercise.
 
 
 

 
 
(c)        In the event of the exercise of the Option by the person or persons entitled to exercise the same upon the death or incompetence of the Optionee as provided in Paragraph 5  hereof, the Notice of exercise shall be accompanied by a certified copy of the Optionee’s last will and testament, if any, with proof of admission to probate, proof of appointment of the committee for an incompetent Optionee, current letters testamentary or letters of administration, necessary estate tax waivers, and any other proof as counsel to the Company may reasonably request as to the right of such person or persons to exercise the Option and as to compliance with estate and inheritance tax laws.
 
           (d)       The Optionee agrees that at the time of exercise of the Option, the Optionee or, in the event of the Optionee’s death or incompetence, the person exercising the Option pursuant to Paragraph 5 hereof, shall, in writing, make such investment representation and agreement restricting the transfer of the shares issued to the Optionee or to such person, as the Company shall,  from time to time on advice of counsel, deem necessary or advisable to comply with the provisions of Paragraph 8 hereof and with the Securities Act of 1933, as amended  (“Act”), or any Blue Sky Law or similar law, rule or regulation of any jurisdiction.  Such investment representation and agreement may, at the option of the Company, be incorporated in the form of Notice of Exercise of the Option.  The Optionee agrees that if the Company, on advice of counsel, shall deem it necessary or advisable, the stock certificates representing such shares and any shares issued with respect thereto, shall bear legends in such form and substance as the Company may determine, from time to time, relating to any such representation and agreement and any restrictions on transfer under the Act, or other applicable law and that they will, promptly after demand by the Company, deliver to the Company for endorsement of such legends, all stock certificates representing such shares.
 
5.           Non-Transferability of and Persons Entitled to Exercise the Option.  The Option is not assignable or transferable by the Optionee otherwise than by will or the laws of descent and distribution and any attempted transfer in violation of this provision shall be void.  During the lifetime of the Optionee, the Option shall be exercisable only by the Optionee or the duly appointed committee of an incompetent Optionee.  After the Optionee’s death, the Option shall be exercisable only by the Optionee’s personal representatives or the person or persons to whom the right to exercise the same shall pass by will or the laws of descent and distribution.  This Agreement shall in all respects be binding upon such transferees.
 
6.           Rights as a Stockholder.  Neither the Optionee nor any other person shall have any rights as a stockholder with respect to any share covered by this Option unless and until they shall have become the holder of record of such shares.
 
7.           Adjustments, Termination and Acceleration of Options in Certain Events.  To the extent deemed equitable and appropriate by the Board or the Committee, in its sole discretion, the number, price and class of shares covered by the Option shall be appropriately adjusted to reflect any stock dividend, stock split or share combination of the Common Stock or any recapitalization of the Company, spin-off, split-up, rights offering, and any merger or consolidation, reorganization, exchange of shares, or other change in the corporate structure (“corporate change”), liquidation or dissolution.  The Option may pertain to the securities and other property which holders of Common Stock would be entitled to receive in connection with such event.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, and unless the acquiring, surviving or continuing corporation agrees in writing to assume the obligations under the Option, in the event of a dissolution or liquidation of the Company, or a transfer of all or substantially all of its assets, or a merger or consolidation, or corporate change, the Board or the Committee may, in its sole discretion, terminate the Option as of the effective date of such event or accelerate the date when any or all installments of the Option shall become exercisable.  Options granted need not be treated identically by the Board or the Committee with respect to termination, acceleration or assumption.  All decisions of the Board or the Committee hereunder shall be final and binding upon the Optionee.
 
8.           Restrictions on Exercise and Transfer.   Notwithstanding any of the other provisions of this Agreement, the Optionee agrees that the Option shall not be exercisable and the shares issued pursuant to the exercise of the Option shall not be issued to the Optionee or thereafter transferred by the Optionee (a) if the Board or the Committee determines that the exercise of the Option or the issuance by the Company of shares pursuant to such exercise or the subsequent transfer of the shares issued upon the exercise of such Option would constitute a violation by the Optionee or by the Company of any provisions of any law, rule or regulation of any governmental or regulatory body or stock exchange or (b) if the Board or the Committee, on advice of counsel, shall determine such exercise, issuance or transfer to be undesirable prior to registration of such shares for issuance and/or resale under the Act, and/or listing of such shares with a securities exchange and/or receipt of the consent or approval of any governmental or regulatory body or stock exchange, as the case may be.  In no event shall the Company be obligated to issue or transfer any shares upon the exercise of any Option or upon subsequent transfer of such shares unless a registration statement under the Act is then in effect and current with respect to the issue or transfer of such shares or the Company, on advice of counsel, determines that exemption from registration under the Act is then available.  Any determination made in good faith by the Company in this connection shall be final, binding and conclusive on all persons whomsoever for all purposes.  The Company shall have no obligation to register the shares issuable upon exercise of the Option under the Act or to list such shares on any stock exchange or to continue such registration or listing.  The Company shall in no event be obligated to take any affirmative action in order to cause the exercise of the Option or the issuance of shares pursuant thereto or any subsequent transfer of such shares to comply with any law or regulation of any governmental or regulatory authority or stock exchange.  For purposes of this Agreement, a securities exchange or stock exchange shall include a national securities market system.
 
 
 

 
 
9.           Withholding.  The Optionee agrees that the Company may withhold from any sums owed to the Optionee for any reason or require payment to the Company of any or all taxes or withholding which it reasonably believes may be required by law to be paid or withheld in connection with the grant or exercise of the Option or the disposition of any shares acquired in connection therewith.  To avoid delaying the issuance of shares upon the exercise of the Option by reason of non-payment of required taxes and withholding, the Optionee should confirm the amount to be paid with the Company before delivering the Notice of Exercise to the Company.
 
10.           Interpretation.  Any dispute or disagreement which shall arise under this Agreement shall be determined by the Company, in its sole judgment and discretion, and such determination by the Company shall be final, binding and conclusive on all persons for all purposes.
 
11.           Notices.
 
(a)           Notice to the Company.  Notices intended for the Company shall be deemed validly given only if delivered in person to, or duly sent, postage and fees prepaid, by registered mail or national courier service addressed to the Company at its principal office and to the attention of the Controller, or to such other address or officer as the Company or its successors may hereafter designate by written notice pursuant to subparagraph (b) of this Paragraph 11.
 
(b)           Notice to the Optionee and Permitted Transferees.  Notices intended for the Optionee shall be deemed validly given only if delivered in person or duly sent, postage and fees prepaid, by mail or national courier service to the last known address of the Optionee as it appears on the records of the Company or to such other address as the Optionee or his permitted transferees shall designate by written notice pursuant to subparagraph (a) of this Paragraph 11.
 
(c)           General.  All notices shall be in writing and shall be effective at the time of delivery in person or, in the case of delivery by mail or courier service, when duly deposited in the mails or with the national courier service, postage and fees prepaid, provided however, a Notice of Exercise of Option shall be effective only upon actual receipt by the Company.
 
12.           Miscellaneous.  The provisions of this Agreement shall survive the exercise of the Option and the issuance of shares pursuant to such exercise.
 
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, The Company has caused this Agreement to be executed and its seal to be affixed hereto by its officers hereunto duly authorized, and the Optionee has signed this Agreement, as of the date first above written.

Section 8.        Taxes.  Each Participant must make appropriate arrangement for the payment of any taxes relating to an Award granted hereunder.  The Company or any Subsidiary is authorized to withhold from any payment relating to an Award, including from a distribution of Common Stock or any payroll or other payment to a Participant amounts of withholding and other taxes due in connection with any transaction involving an Award, and to take such other action as the Committee may deem advisable to enable the Company and Participants to satisfy obligations for the payment of withholding taxes and other tax obligations relating to any Award.  This authority shall include the ability to withhold or receive Common Stock or other property and to make cash payments in respect thereof in satisfaction of a Participant’s tax obligations.  Withholding of taxes in the form of shares of Common Stock from the profit attributable to the Award shall not occur at a rate that exceeds the minimum required statutory federal and state withholding rates.

Section 10.      Securities Law Requirements.
 
10.1.           No shares of Common Stock may be issued hereunder if the Company shall at any time determine that (i) the listing upon any securities exchange, registration or qualification under any state or federal law of any Common Stock otherwise issuable pursuant an Award granted hereunder, or (ii) the consent or approval of any regulatory body or the satisfaction of withholding tax or other withholding liabilities, is necessary or appropriate in connection with such issuance.  In any of the events referred to in clause (i) or clause (ii) above, the issuance of such shares shall be suspended and shall not be effective unless and until such withholding, listing, registration, qualifications or approval shall have been effected or obtained free of any conditions not acceptable to the Company in its sole discretion, notwithstanding any termination of any Award or any portion of any Award during the period when issuance has been suspended.
 
10.2.           The Committee may require, as a condition to the issuance of shares hereunder, representations, warranties and agreements to the effect that such shares are being purchased or acquired by the Participant for investment only and without any present intention to sell or otherwise distribute such shares and that the Participant will not dispose of such shares in transactions which, in the opinion of counsel to the Company, would violate the registration provisions of the Securities Act of 1933, as then amended, and the rules and regulations thereunder.  The certificates issued to evidence such shares shall bear appropriate legends summarizing such restrictions on the disposition thereof.
 
Section 11.      Fractional Shares.  The Company will not be required to issue any fractional shares of Common Stock.  The Committee may provide for the elimination of fractions and settlement of such fractional shares of Common Stock in cash.
 
Section 12.      Discretion.  In exercising, or declining to exercise, any grant of authority or discretion hereunder, the Committee may consider or ignore such factors or circumstances and may accord such weight to such factors and circumstances as the Committee alone and in its sole judgment deems appropriate and without regard to the effect such exercise, or declining to exercise such grant of authority or discretion, would have upon the affected Participant, any other Participant, any employee, the Company, any Subsidiary, any affiliate, any stockholder or any other person.
 
Section 13.       Governing Law.  The validity and construction of the Award Agreements shall be construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, but without giving effect to the choice of law principles thereof.
