material effect on the amounts distributable to the Partner upon the

4. Allocations and Distributions.
4.1.1 Profits and Losses for each Fiscal Year shall be
allocated among the Partners in proportion to their respective Partnership
Interests. If, in any Fiscal Year, any of the distributions or allocations to
any of the Partners respecting cash distributions are adjusted pursuant to the
terms of this Agreement or pursuant to applicable law, then the respective
shares of Profits and Losses of the Partners shall be automatically adjusted
in such Fiscal Year to be consistent with the actual distributions received by
the Partners in such Fiscal Year.
4.1.2 Notwithstanding Section 4.1.1 above, no item of
Partnership loss or deduction may be allocated to a Partner to the extent such
allocation would create or increase a deficit balance in such Partner's
Capital Account (in excess of any limited dollar amount of such deficit
balance that the Partner is considered obligated to restore under Treasury
Regulations Sections 1.704-2(g)(1) or 1.704-2(i)(5)) as of the end of the
Fiscal Year to which such allocation relates, taking into account
for this purpose any adjustments, allocations and distributions described in
clauses (4), (5) and (6) of Treasury Regulations Section
1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)). This provision is intended to be interpreted
consistently, and to comply, with Treasury Regulations Section
1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d). If this Section 4.1.2 applies to the Partner in a Fiscal
Year, all items of Partnership loss or deduction otherwise allocable to a
Partner for such Fiscal Year shall be reduced by the same proportion. Items of
Partnership loss or deduction (or portions thereof) which may not be allocated
to a Partner by reason of this Section 4.1.2 shall be reallocated to the other
Partner or Partners. If a Partner unexpectedly receives an adjustment,
allocation or distribution described in clause (4), (5) or (6) of Treasury
Regulations Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d), such Partner will be allocated items
of Partnership income and gain (consisting of a pro rata portion of each item
of Partnership income, including gross income and gain for such year) in an
amount and manner sufficient to eliminate any deficit balance in such
Partner's Capital Account created by such adjustment, allocation or
distribution as quickly as possible.
