Committee, in its discretion, may determine whether any leave of absence
constitutes a termination of employment for purposes of this Agreement.

are not subject to attachment, garnishment, execution or other legal or
equitable process, and any attempt to do so shall be null and void. If the
Grantee attempts to dispose of or encumber the Grantee's unvested shares of
Restricted Stock, such shares of Restricted Stock, together with any property in
respect of such shares held by the custodian pursuant to Section 4.3 hereof,
shall be forfeited as of the date of such attempted transfer and the Grantee
promptly shall return to the Company any certificates evidencing such shares.

the vesting of the shares represented by such certificate.
(d) The Grantee shall not be deemed for any purpose to be, or have rights
as, a shareholder of the Company by virtue of the grant of Restricted Stock,

the shares, subject to the restrictions on transferability, the forfeiture
provisions and the requirement that dividends be held in escrow until the shares

including cash dividends, received by a Grantee with respect to a share of
Restricted Stock as a result of any dividend, recapitalization, merger,
consolidation, combination, exchange of shares or otherwise and for which the
Grant Date occurs prior to such event but which has not vested as of the date of
such event, will not vest until such share of Restricted Stock vests, and shall
be promptly deposited with the Company or a custodian designated by the Company.
The Company shall or shall cause such custodian to issue to the Grantee a
receipt evidencing the property held by it in respect of the Restricted Stock.
Delays or Omissions. No delay or omission to exercise any right, power or
remedy accruing to any party hereto upon any breach or default of any party
under this Agreement, shall impair any such right, power or remedy of such
party, nor shall it be construed to be a waiver of any such breach or default,
or an acquiescence therein, or of or in any similar breach or default thereafter
occurring, nor shall any waiver of any single breach or default be deemed a
waiver of any other breach or default theretofore or thereafter occurring. Any
waiver, permit, consent or approval of any kind or character on the part of any
party of any breach or default under this Agreement, or any waiver on the part
of any party or any provisions or conditions of this Agreement, must be in a
writing signed by such party and shall be effective only to the extent
specifically set forth in such writing.

the Grantee the right to continue in the employ or other service of the Company
or one of the Company's subsidiaries, or affect any right which the Company may
have to terminate such employment or service.

parties with respect to its subject matter. There are no restrictions,
