4.             Forfeiture of Restricted Stock Units.

 

If the Participant’s employment with the Company and its Affiliates terminates prior to a Vesting Date for any reason, except as described in Section 5, any unvested Restricted Stock Units shall automatically be forfeited, and all of the Participant’s rights to and interest in the Restricted Stock Units shall terminate without payment of consideration.

 

5.             Accelerated Vesting Upon Certain Terminations.

 

If the Participant’s employment with the Company and its Affiliates terminates prior to a Vesting Date as a result of the Participant’s: (a) death; (b) disability for which the Participant qualifies for benefits under a long-term disability plan sponsored by the Company or an Affiliate; or (c) involuntary termination without Cause, the Committee may, in its sole discretion, (i) provide that the Participant’s Restricted Stock Units shall not be forfeited upon such termination of employment, and the Participant shall be eligible for settlement of this Award in accordance with Section 6 upon such termination of employment; or (ii) where the Participant is subject to a post-termination covenant not to compete with the Company and/or its Affiliates that constitutes a Risk of Forfeiture, provide that the Participant’s Restricted Stock Units shall not be forfeited upon such termination of employment, and that the Restricted Stock Units shall be settled in accordance with Section 6 upon the earlier of (A) the applicable Vesting Date; and (B) the expiration of the noncompete period, provided, however, that the Participant complies with the covenant not to compete through to such date.

 

The date of the termination of employment shall, for all purposes, be deemed to be the Participant’s last day of active employment with the Company or any of its Affiliates and shall not be extended beyond that date by any notice period to which the Participant is entitled to receive under the terms of the Participant’s employment agreement or otherwise.

 

6.             Settlement of Restricted Stock Units.

 

Within a reasonable period of time after an applicable Vesting Date or any earlier applicable date set forth in Section 5, the Company shall issue or transfer to or for the benefit of the Participant that number of shares of Stock equal to the aggregate number of Restricted Stock Units for which the Participant is then entitled to settlement.

 

7.             Voting and Dividend Equivalents.

 

Unless and until shares of Stock are issued or transferred to the Participant in settlement of vested Restricted Stock Units hereunder and are evidenced in book entry form on the records of the Company’s transfer agent in the name of the Participant, Participant shall not be, or have any of the rights or privileges of, a stockholder of the Company.  Following vesting of any Restricted Stock Units hereunder, the Participant shall be entitled to receive payments (without interest or other earnings) equivalent to any dividends declared with respect to the shares of Stock underlying such vested Restricted Stock Units, the record dates for which fall on or after the Grant Date and prior to the date on which such shares of Stock are settled upon the Participant, at the time such shares of Stock are issued or transferred to the Participant in accordance with Section 6.
