(b) Any party hereto may assign all or any of its rights and obligations hereunder to its Affiliates, provided that no such assignment shall relieve the assigning party of its obligations hereunder.

SECTION 10. Miscellaneous. (a) This Agreement and the Transaction Agreements and the documents described therein or attached or delivered pursuant thereto set forth the entire agreement between the parties thereto with respect to the transactions contemplated by such agreements. Any provision of this Agreement may be amended or modified in whole or in part at any time only by an agreement in writing signed by all of the parties. No failure on the part of any party to exercise, and no delay in exercising, any right shall operate as a waiver thereof nor shall any single or partial exercise by any party of any right preclude any other or future exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right.

(b) If any term or other provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced by Law or public policy, all other conditions and provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance is not affected in any manner materially adverse to any party. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the parties hereto shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the parties as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated by this Agreement be consummated as originally contemplated to the fullest extent possible.

(c) This Agreement may be executed and delivered (including by facsimile transmission) in one or more counterparts, and by the different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when executed shall be deemed to be an original but all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement.

(d) No right, power or remedy conferred upon any party in this Agreement shall be exclusive, and each such right, power or remedy shall be cumulative and in addition to every other right, power or remedy whether conferred in this Agreement or now or hereafter available at law or in equity or by statute or otherwise. The parties hereto agree that irreparable damage would occur in the event any provision of this Agreement was not performed in accordance with the terms hereof and that the parties shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions of this Agreement in addition to any other remedy to which they are entitled at law or in equity.

(e) Each party shall execute and deliver such additional instruments and other documents and shall take such further actions as may be necessary or appropriate to effectuate, carry out and comply with all of the terms of this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby.

(f) The section headings, captions and table of contents contained in this Agreement are for reference purposes only, are not part of this Agreement and shall not affect the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.

(g) This Agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the parties, and their respective successors and permitted assigns.

(h) All costs and expenses incurred in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby shall be paid by the party incurring such expense.

(i) This agreement shall terminate and become of no further force and effect on the earlier to occur of (i) immediately after the Put Right Closing or the Call Right Closing, as the case may be, and (ii) the written consent of the parties hereto.

(j) This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the Laws of the State of New York applicable to contracts executed in and to be performed in that State. All actions and proceedings arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be heard and determined exclusively in any New York state or federal court sitting in the Borough of Manhattan of The City of New York. The parties hereto hereby (a) submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of any state or federal court sitting in the Borough of Manhattan of The City of New York for the purpose of any Action arising out of or relating to this Agreement brought by any party hereto, and (b) irrevocably waive, and agree not to assert by way of motion, defense, or otherwise, in any such Action, any claim that it is not subject personally to the jurisdiction of the above-named courts, that its property is exempt or immune from attachment or execution, that the Action is brought in an inconvenient forum, that the venue of the Action is improper, or that this Agreement may not be enforced in or by any of the above-named courts.

(k) Each of the parties hereto hereby waives to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law any right it may have to a trial by jury with respect to any litigation directly or indirectly arising out of, under or in connection with this Agreement. Each of the parties hereto (a) certifies that no representative, agent or attorney of any other party has represented, expressly or otherwise, that such other party would not, in the event of litigation, seek to enforce that foregoing waiver and (b) acknowledges that it and the other hereto have been induced to enter into this Agreement, as applicable, by, among other things, the mutual waivers and certifications in this Section 10(k).

CERTIFICATE OF DESIGNATION OF THE POWERS,

PREFERENCES AND RELATIVE, PARTICIPATING,

OPTIONAL AND OTHER SPECIAL RIGHTS OF

SERIES G MANDATORILY CONVERTIBLE PREFERRED STOCK

AND QUALIFICATIONS, LIMITATIONS AND RESTRICTIONS THEREOF

Pursuant to Section 151 of the
General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware

ION Media Networks, Inc. (the “Corporation”), a corporation organized and existing under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, does hereby certify that, pursuant to the authority conferred upon the board of directors of the Corporation (the “Board of Directors”) by the Certificate of Incorporation of the Corporation, as amended (hereinafter referred to as the “Certificate of Incorporation”), and pursuant to the provisions of Section 151 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, the Board of Directors, on      , duly approved and adopted the following resolution:

RESOLVED, that, pursuant to the authority vested in the Board of Directors by the Certificate of Incorporation, the Board of Directors does hereby create, authorize and provide for the issuance of Series G Mandatorily Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $.001 per share, with a liquidation preference of $10,000 per share, consisting of 25,000 shares, having the designations, preferences, relative, participating, optional and other special rights and the qualifications, limitations and restrictions thereof that are set forth in the Certificate of Incorporation and in this resolution as follows:

Designation. There is hereby created out of the authorized and unissued shares of Preferred Stock of the Corporation a series of Preferred Stock designated as the “Series G Mandatorily Convertible Preferred Stock.” The number of shares constituting such series shall be 25,000 and are referred to as the “Series G Convertible Preferred.” The liquidation preference of the Series G Convertible Preferred shall be $10,000.00 per share (the “Liquidation Preference”).

Rank. The Series G Convertible Preferred shall, with respect to dividends and distributions upon liquidation, winding up or dissolution of the Corporation, rank (i) senior to the Junior Preferred Stock, to all classes of Common Stock of the Corporation and to each other class of Capital Stock of the Corporation or series of Preferred Stock of the Corporation hereafter created, the terms of which do not expressly provide that it ranks senior to, or on a parity with, the Series G Convertible Preferred as to dividends and distributions upon liquidation, winding up or dissolution of the Corporation (collectively referred to, together with all classes of Common Stock of the Corporation, as “Junior Securities”); (ii) on a parity with the 8% Series D Mandatorily Convertible Preferred Stock and any other class of Capital Stock of the Corporation or series of Preferred Stock of the Corporation hereafter created the terms of which expressly provide that such class or series will rank on a parity with the Series G Convertible Preferred as to dividends and distributions upon liquidation, winding up or dissolution of the Corporation (collectively referred to as “Parity Securities”), provided that any such Parity Securities not issued in accordance with the requirements of paragraph (f)(i) hereof shall be deemed to be Junior Securities and not Parity Securities; and (iii) junior to the Senior Preferred Stock and to each other class of Capital Stock of the Corporation or series of Preferred Stock of the Corporation hereafter created the terms of which expressly provide that such class or series will rank senior to the Series G Convertible Preferred as to dividends and distributions upon liquidation, winding up or dissolution of the Corporation (collectively referred to as “Senior Securities”), provided that any such Senior Securities not issued in accordance with the requirements of paragraph (f)(i) hereof shall be deemed to be Junior Securities and not Senior Securities.

Dividends.

Beginning on the Issue Date, the Holders shall be entitled to receive, when, as and if declared by the Board of Directors, out of funds legally available therefor, dividends on each share of Series G Convertible Preferred at the higher of (x) (A) from the Issue Date until the second anniversary of the Issue Date, a rate per annum equal to 8% of the Issue Price, and (B) after the second anniversary of the Issue Date, a rate per annum equal to 11% of the Issue Price and (y) the aggregate cash dividends per share paid on the Class A Common Stock from (A) the later of the Issue Date or the date of the last payment of a cash dividend on the Class A Common Stock to (B) the date of such determination, multiplied by the number of shares of Class A Common Stock into which each share of Series G Convertible Preferred is convertible. All dividends shall accrue and be cumulative, whether or not earned or declared, on a quarterly basis, in arrears, from the Issue Date, even if the Series G Convertible Preferred are issued on a date subsequent to the Issue Date, but shall be payable only at such time or times as may be fixed by the Board of Directors or as otherwise provided herein and shall not compound. Dividends shall cease to accrue and accumulate in respect of shares of the Series G Convertible Preferred on the date of conversion of such shares or the date of the redemption of such shares unless the Corporation shall have failed to pay or make available for payment the relevant redemption price on the date fixed for redemption.

All dividends paid with respect to shares of the Series G Convertible Preferred pursuant to paragraph (c)(i) shall be paid in cash pro rata to the Holders entitled thereto.

Liquidation.

In the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Corporation, each Holder shall be entitled to be paid, out of the assets of the Corporation available for distribution to its stockholders and before any distribution shall be made or any assets distributed to the holders of any of the Junior Securities, including, without limitation, the Common Stock of the Corporation, an amount in cash equal to the greater of (A) the Liquidation Preference for each outstanding share of Series G Convertible Preferred, plus, without duplication, an amount in cash equal to accumulated and unpaid dividends thereon to the date fixed for such liquidation, dissolution or winding up, and (B) the amount per share which would have been payable upon such liquidation, dissolution or winding up to the holders of shares of Class A Common Stock or such other class or series of stock into which the Series G Convertible Preferred is then convertible (assuming the conversion of each share of then convertible Series G Convertible Preferred and without deduction for the Liquidation Preference otherwise payable pursuant to clause (A) hereof), multiplied by the number of shares of Class A Common Stock into which such shares of Series G Convertible Preferred are then convertible. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, Holders of Series G Convertible Preferred shall not be entitled to any distribution in the event of any liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Corporation. If the assets of the Corporation are not sufficient to pay in full the liquidation payments payable to the Holders and to any holders of all other Parity Securities, then such assets shall be distributed among the Holders and any holders of such other Parity Securities ratably in accordance with the respective amounts that would be payable on such shares of Series G Convertible Preferred and any such shares of other Parity Securities if all amounts payable thereon were paid in full.

For the purposes of this paragraph (d), neither the sale, conveyance, exchange or transfer (for cash, shares of stock, securities or other consideration) of all or substantially all of the property or assets of the Corporation nor the consolidation or merger of the Corporation with or into one or more entities shall be deemed to be a liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Corporation.

Redemption.

Mandatory Redemption. The Corporation shall redeem, in the manner provided for in paragraph (e)(ii) hereof, and out of funds legally available therefor all of the outstanding shares of Series G Convertible Preferred for cash on August 31, 2013 (the “Redemption Date”), at a price per share equal to the Redemption Price.

Procedures for Redemption. 1.1.1. At least 90 days prior to the Redemption Date, written notice (the “Redemption Notice”) shall be given by first class mail, postage prepaid, to each Holder who is a Holder on the date such notice is given at such Holder’s address as it appears on the stock books of the Corporation, provided that no failure to give such notice nor any deficiency therein shall affect the validity of the procedure for the redemption of any shares of Series G Convertible Preferred as to the Holder or Holders to whom the Corporation has failed to give said notice or to whom such notice was defective. The Redemption Notice shall state:

the Redemption Price;

that the Holder is to surrender to the Corporation, in the manner, at the place or places and at the price designated, its certificate or certificates representing the shares of Series G Convertible Preferred; and

that dividends on the shares of the Series G Convertible Preferred shall cease to accumulate on such Redemption Date unless the Corporation defaults in the payment of the Redemption Price.

Each Holder shall surrender the certificate or certificates representing all shares of Series G Convertible Preferred held by such Holder to the Corporation, duly endorsed (or otherwise in proper form for transfer, as determined by the Corporation), in the manner and at the place or places designated in the Redemption Notice, and on the Redemption Date the full Redemption Price for such shares shall be payable in cash to the Person whose name appears on such certificate or certificates as the owner thereof, and each surrendered certificate shall be canceled and retired.

On and after the Redemption Date, unless the Corporation defaults in the payment in full of the Redemption Price, dividends on the Series G Convertible Preferred shall cease to accumulate on the Redemption Date, and all rights of the Holders shall terminate with respect to the Series G Convertible Preferred on the Redemption Date, other than the right to receive the Redemption Price, without interest; provided, however, that if the Redemption Notice shall have been given and the funds necessary for redemption (including an amount in respect of all dividends that will accrue to the Redemption Date) shall have been segregated and irrevocably deposited in trust for the equal and ratable benefit of the Holders, then, at the close of business on the day on which such funds are segregated and set aside, the Holders shall cease to be stockholders of the Corporation and shall be entitled only to receive the Redemption Price.

Voting Rights. Holders shall have no voting rights, except as required by the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, and as expressly provided in this Certificate of Designation.

1.1.1.1.1. So long as any shares of the Series G Convertible Preferred are outstanding, the Corporation may not issue any additional shares of Series G Convertible Preferred or any new class of Parity Securities or Senior Securities (or amend the provisions of any existing class of Capital Stock to make such class of Capital Stock Parity Securities or Senior Securities) without the approval of Holders holding at least a majority of the then outstanding shares of Series G Convertible Preferred, voting or consenting, as the case may be, together as one class given in person or by proxy, either in writing or by resolution adopted at an annual or special meeting; provided, however, that the Corporation may, without the approval of such Holders issue additional shares of Parity Securities or Senior Securities (including shares issued in payment of dividends thereon in accordance with their respective certificates of designation) and which Senior Securities or Parity Securities do not require the Corporation to pay dividends thereon on a current basis in cash, or require cash dividends to be paid at a rate not in excess of three percentage points greater than the dividend rate borne by any series of Senior Securities and which do not prohibit the payment of dividends other than in cash on the Series G  Convertible Preferred or prohibit the redemption by the Corporation of the Series G Convertible Preferred pursuant to paragraph (e)(i) above, in an amount sufficient to Refinance any series of Senior Securities, in whole or in part, with such shares being issued no sooner than the date the Corporation Refinances such series of Senior Securities.

So long as any shares of the Series G Convertible Preferred are outstanding, the Corporation shall not amend this Certificate of Designation so as to affect materially and adversely the rights, preferences or privileges of Holders without the affirmative vote or consent of Holders holding at least a majority of the then outstanding shares of Series G Convertible Preferred, voting or consenting, as the case may be, as one class, given in person or by proxy, either in writing or by resolution adopted at an annual or special meeting.

Except as set forth in paragraph (f)(i)(A) above, the creation, authorization or issuance of any shares of any Junior Securities, Parity Securities or Senior Securities or the increase or decrease in the amount of authorized Capital Stock of any class, including Preferred Stock, shall not require the consent of Holders and shall not be deemed to affect adversely the rights, preferences or privileges of such Holders.

Without the affirmative vote or consent of Holders holding at least a majority of the then outstanding shares of Series G Convertible Preferred, voting or consenting, as the case may be, as a separate class, given in person or by proxy, either in writing or by resolution adopted at an annual or special meeting, the Corporation shall not, in a single transaction or series of related transactions, consolidate or merge with or into, or sell, assign, transfer, lease, convey or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of the Corporation’s assets (as an entirety or substantially as an entirety in one transaction or series of related transactions) to, another Person (other than a Wholly-Owned Subsidiary with, into or to another Wholly-Owned Subsidiary) or adopt a plan of liquidation unless (A) either (I) the Corporation is the surviving or continuing Person or (II) the Person (if other than the Corporation) formed by such consolidation or into which the Corporation is merged or the Person that acquires by conveyance, transfer or lease the properties and assets of the Corporation substantially as an entirety or, in the case of a plan of liquidation, the Person to which assets of the Corporation have been transferred shall be organized and existing under the laws of the United States or any State thereof or the District of Columbia; (B) the Series G Convertible Preferred shall be converted into or exchanged for and shall become shares of such successor, transferee or resulting Person with the same powers, preferences and relative, participating, optional or other special rights and the qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereon, that the Series G Convertible Preferred had immediately prior to such transaction; (C) immediately after giving effect to such transactions, no Voting Rights Triggering Event shall have occurred or shall have occurred after the Issue Date and be continuing; and (D) the Corporation has delivered to the transfer agent for the Series G Convertible Preferred prior to the consummation of the proposed transaction an Officers’ Certificate and an Opinion of Counsel, each stating that such consolidation, merger or transfer complies with the terms hereof and that all conditions precedent herein relating to such transaction have been satisfied. For purposes of the foregoing, the transfer (by lease, assignment, sale or otherwise, in a single transaction or series of related transactions) of all or substantially all of the properties and assets of one or more Subsidiaries of the Corporation, the Capital Stock of which constitutes all or substantially all of the properties and assets of the Corporation shall be deemed to be the transfer of all or substantially all of the properties and assets of the Corporation.

1.1.1.1.1. If the Corporation fails to discharge any redemption or conversion obligation with respect to the Series G Convertible Preferred (such failure being a “Voting Rights Triggering Event”), then, subject to paragraph (f)(iii)(E) below, Holders of at least a majority of the then outstanding shares of Series G Convertible Preferred, voting separately and as one class, shall have the exclusive right to elect the lesser of two directors and that number of directors constituting 25% of the members of the Board of Directors, at a meeting called for such purpose following the occurrence of such Voting Rights Triggering Event, and at every subsequent meeting at which the terms of office of the directors so elected by the Holders expire (other than as described in (f)(iii)(B) below), and the number of directors constituting the Board of Directors shall be increased by the number of directors so elected by the Holders. The voting rights provided herein shall be the exclusive remedy at law or in equity of the Holders for any Voting Rights Triggering Event.

The right of the Holders voting together as a separate class to elect members of the Board of Directors as set forth in paragraph (f)(iii)(A) above shall continue until such time as in all other cases, the failure, breach or default giving rise to such Voting Rights Triggering Event is remedied, cured or waived by Holders of at least a majority of the then outstanding shares of Series G Convertible Preferred that are entitled to vote thereon, at which time (I) the special right of the Holders so to vote as a class for the election of directors and (II) the term of office of the directors elected by the Holders shall each terminate and such persons shall cease to be members of the Board of Directors. At any time after voting power to elect directors shall have become vested and be continuing in the Holders pursuant to paragraph (f)(iii) hereof, or if vacancies shall exist in the offices of directors elected by such Holders, a proper officer of the Corporation may, and upon the written request of Holders of at least 25% of the then outstanding shares of Series G Convertible Preferred addressed to the secretary of the Corporation shall, call a special meeting of the Holders, for the purpose of electing the directors which the Holders are entitled to elect. If such meeting shall not be called by a proper officer of the Corporation within 20 days after personal service of said written request upon the secretary of the Corporation, or within 20 days after mailing the same within the United States by certified mail, addressed to the secretary of the Corporation at its principal executive offices, then Holders of at least 25% of the then outstanding shares of Series G Convertible Preferred may designate in writing one of their number to call such meeting at the reasonable expense of the Corporation, and such meeting may be called by the Holder so designated upon the notice required for the annual meetings of stockholders of the Corporation and shall be held at the place for holding the annual meetings of stockholders. Any Holder of Series G Convertible Preferred so designated shall have, and the Corporation shall provide, access to the lists of stockholders to be called pursuant to the provisions hereof.

At any meeting held for the purpose of electing directors at which the Holders shall have the right, voting together as a separate class, to elect directors as aforesaid, the presence in person or by proxy of Holders of at least a majority of the then outstanding shares of Series G Convertible Preferred shall be required to constitute a quorum of such Series G Convertible Preferred.

Any vacancy occurring in the office of a director elected by the Holders may be filled by the remaining director (if any) elected by the Holders unless and until such vacancy shall be filled by the Holders.

The provisions of this paragraph (f)(iii) shall apply only to those Holders, if any, that would be permitted to vote in the election of directors of the Corporation pursuant to applicable laws and regulations of the FCC, with such Holders together being treated as the class of Holders entitled to exercise such rights. The determination as to whether any Holder would not be permitted to exercise such voting rights shall be made jointly by any such Holder(s) and the Corporation.

In any case in which the Holders shall be entitled to vote pursuant to this paragraph (f) or pursuant to the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, each Holder entitled to vote with respect to such matter shall be entitled to one vote for each then outstanding share of Series G Convertible Preferred so held.

Conversion.

Optional Conversion. Each share of the Series G Convertible Preferred is convertible at the option of the Holder thereof, at any time and from time to time, into (A) a number of Conversion Shares equal to the Issue Price of the shares of Series G Convertible Preferred surrendered for conversion plus accrued and unpaid dividends thereon, divided by (B) the Conversion Price then in effect, except that if shares of Series G Convertible Preferred are called for redemption the conversion right will terminate at the close of business on the Redemption Date. No fractional shares or securities representing fractional shares will be issued upon conversion; in lieu of fractional shares the Corporation will pay a cash adjustment based upon the Common Stock Value as of the close of business on the first Business Day preceding the date of conversion. The Series G Convertible Preferred shall be converted by the holder thereof by surrendering the certificate or certificates representing the shares of Series G Convertible Preferred to be converted, appropriately completed, to the transfer agent for the Common Stock. The transfer agent shall issue one or more certificates representing the Conversion Shares in the name or names requested by such Holder. The transfer agent will deliver to such Holder a new certificate representing the shares of Series G Convertible Preferred in excess of those being surrendered for conversion. The conversion rights stated herein are subject to compliance by the Holder with all applicable laws and regulations, including, without limitation, the Communications Act, and as a condition precedent to the Corporation’s obligation to issue Conversion Shares to a Holder or its designee(s), the Corporation may require that such Holder deliver to the Corporation an opinion of legal counsel reasonably acceptable to the Corporation to the effect that the issuance of Conversion Shares to such Holder or its designee(s) upon conversion will not violate or conflict with the Communications Act.

Mandatory Conversion. Upon the occurrence of a Mandatory Conversion Event, including a Mandatory Conversion Event that occurs after the Redemption Date to the extent any share of Series G Convertible Preferred remains outstanding after the Redemption Date, unless previously converted at the option of Holders in accordance with the provisions hereof, each outstanding share of Series G Convertible Preferred shall, without notice to Holders, convert automatically (the “Mandatory Conversion”) into (A) a number of Conversion Shares equal to the Issue Price of the shares of Series G Convertible Preferred so converted plus accrued and unpaid dividends thereon, divided by the (B) Conversion Price then in effect. No fractional shares or securities representing fractional shares will be issued upon conversion; in lieu of fractional shares the Corporation will pay a cash adjustment based upon the Common Stock Value as of the close of business on the first Business Day preceding the date of the occurrence of such Mandatory Conversion Event. Promptly following a Mandatory Conversion Event, written notice (the “Mandatory Conversion Notice”) shall be given by first class mail, postage prepaid, to each Holder who is a Holder on the date such notice is given at such Holder’s address as it appears on the stock books of the Corporation, provided that no failure to give such notice or any deficiency therein shall affect the validity of the procedures for the Mandatory Conversion as to the Holder or Holders to whom the Corporation has failed to give said notice or to whom such notice was effected. Each Holder shall surrender the certificate or certificates representing all shares of Series G Convertible Preferred held by such Holder to the Corporation, duly endorsed (or otherwise in proper form for transfer, as determined by the Corporation) and the Corporation shall issue to such Holder that number of shares of Class A Common Stock to which such Holder is entitled, as calculated in accordance with this paragraph; provided, however, that if a Holder shall notify the Corporation within five (5) Business Days of receipt of the Mandatory Conversion Notice that it wishes to receive Class C Common Stock in accordance with this paragraph, the Corporation shall issue such Holder an equal number of shares of Class C Common Stock to which such Holder is entitled as calculated in accordance with this paragraph.

(A) In case the Corporation shall (I) pay a dividend or distribution in shares of Class A Common Stock on its shares of Class A Common Stock, (II) subdivide its outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock into a greater number of shares, (III) combine its outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, or (IV) issue, by reclassification of its shares of Class A Common Stock, any shares of its Capital Stock (each such transaction being called a “Stock Transaction”), then and in each such case, the Conversion Price in effect immediately prior thereto shall be adjusted so that the Holder of a share of Series G Convertible Preferred surrendered for conversion after the record date fixing stockholders to be affected by such Stock Transaction shall be entitled to receive upon conversion the number of Conversion Shares which such Holder would have been entitled to receive after the happening of such event had such share of Series G Convertible Preferred been converted immediately prior to such record date. Such adjustment shall be made whenever any Stock Transaction occurs, but shall also be effective retroactively as to shares of Series G Convertible Preferred converted between such record date and the date of the happening of any such Stock Transaction.

If the Corporation shall, at any time or from time to time while any shares of Series G Convertible Preferred are outstanding, issue or sell any right or warrant to purchase, acquire or subscribe for shares of Class A Common Stock (including a right or warrant with respect to any security convertible into or exchangeable for shares of Class A Common Stock) generally to holders of its Common Stock (including by way of a reclassification of shares or a recapitalization of the Corporation), for a consideration on the date of such issuance or sale less than the Common Stock Value of the shares of Class A Common Stock underlying such rights or warrants on the date of such issuance or sale, then and in each such case, the Conversion Price shall be adjusted by multiplying such Conversion Price by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the sum of (I) the Common Stock Value per share of Class A Common Stock on the first Business Day after the date of the public announcement of the actual terms (including the price terms) of such issuance or sale multiplied by the number of shares of Class A Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to such issuance or sale plus (II) the aggregate Fair Market Value of the consideration to be received by the Corporation in connection with the issuance or sale of the rights or warrants plus the aggregate consideration to be received in respect of the purchase of the shares of Class A Common Stock underlying such rights or warrants, and the denominator of which shall be the Common Stock Value per share of Class A Common Stock on the Business Day immediately preceding the public announcement of the actual terms (including the price terms) of such issuance or sale multiplied by the aggregate number of shares of Class A Common Stock (I) outstanding immediately prior to such issuance or sale plus (II) underlying such rights or warrants at the time of such issuance or sale. For the purposes of the preceding sentence, the aggregate consideration receivable by the Corporation in connection with the issuance or sale of any such right or warrant shall be deemed to be equal to the sum of the aggregate offering price (before deduction of reasonable underwriting discounts or commissions and expenses) of all such rights or warrants. No adjustment to the Conversion Price pursuant to this paragraph (B) shall be made if, in conjunction with any such issuance or sale by the Corporation generally to holders of its Common Stock, the Corporation issues or offers to sell to the Holders such rights or warrants on the same basis as the Holders would have received had their shares of Series G Convertible Preferred been converted into shares of Class A Common Stock (or Class C Common Stock, as the case may be) immediately prior to the such issuance or sale. Upon the expiration or termination of any such rights or warrants without the exercise of such rights or warrants, the Conversion Price then in effect shall be adjusted immediately to the Conversion Price which would have been in effect at the time of such expiration or termination had such rights or warrants, to the extent outstanding immediately prior to such expiration or termination, never been issued, although such adjustment shall not effect previously converted shares.

In the event the Corporation shall at any time or from time to time while any shares of Series G Convertible Preferred are outstanding declare, order, pay or make a dividend or other distribution generally to holders of its Common Stock in stock or other securities or rights or warrants to subscribe for securities of the Corporation or any of its subsidiaries or evidences of Indebtedness of the Corporation or any other person or pay any Extraordinary Cash Dividend (other than any dividend or distribution on the Class A Common Stock (I) referred to in paragraphs (A) or (B) above or (II) if in conjunction therewith the Corporation declares and pays or makes a dividend or distribution on each share of Series G Convertible Preferred which is the same as the dividend or distribution that would have been made or paid with respect to such share of Series G Convertible Preferred had such share been converted into shares of Class A Common Stock immediately prior to the record date for any such dividend or distribution on the Class A Common Stock), then, and in each such case, an appropriate adjustment to the Conversion Price shall be made so that the Holder of each share of Series G Convertible Preferred shall be entitled to receive, upon the conversion thereof, the number of shares of Class A Common Stock determined by multiplying (x) the number of shares of Class A Common Stock into which such share was convertible on the day immediately prior to the record date fixed for the determination of stockholders entitled to receive such dividend or distribution by (y) a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the Common Stock Value per share of Class A Common Stock as of such record date, and the denominator of which shall be such Common Stock Value per share of Class A Common Stock less the Fair Market Value per share of Class A Common Stock of such dividend or distribution (as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors, as evidenced by a Board Resolution mailed to each holder of Series G Convertible Preferred). An adjustment made pursuant to this paragraph (C) shall be made upon the opening of business on the next Business Day following the date on which any such dividend or distribution is made and shall be effective retroactively to the close of business on the record date fixed for the determination of stockholders entitled to receive such dividend or distribution.

(D) In the event the Company shall, at any time or from time to time while any shares of Series G Convertible Preferred are outstanding, repurchase (a “Repurchase”) any portion of the Class A Common Stock from holders generally at a premium over the Common Stock Value thereof on the next trading day immediately preceding the consummation of such Repurchase, then and in the case of each Repurchase the Conversion Price in effect immediately prior thereto shall be adjusted by multiplying such Conversion Price by the fraction the numerator of which is (I) the product of (x) the number of shares of Class A Common Stock outstanding immediately before such Repurchase multiplied by (y) the Common Stock Value per share of Class A Common Stock on the next trading day immediately following the consummation of such Repurchase minus (II) the aggregate purchase price of the Repurchase and the denominator of which shall be the product of (x) the number of shares of Class A Common Stock outstanding immediately before such Repurchase minus the number of shares of Class A Common Stock Repurchased by the Company multiplied by (y) the Common Stock Value per share of Class A Common Stock on the next trading day immediately following the consummation of such Repurchase. Such adjustment shall be made whenever any such Repurchase occurs, but shall also be effective retroactively as to shares of Series G Convertible Preferred converted between such record date and the date of the happening of any such Repurchase.

No adjustment in the Conversion Price will be required to be made in any case until cumulative adjustments amount to 1% or more of the Conversion Price, but any such adjustment that would otherwise be required to be made shall be carried forward and taken into account in any subsequent adjustment.

In the event of any capital reorganization (other than a capital reorganization covered by paragraph (ii)(C) above) or reclassification of outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Corporation (other than a reclassification covered by paragraph (ii)(A) above), or in case of any merger, consolidation or other corporate combination of the Corporation with or into another corporation, or in case of any sale or conveyance to another corporation of the property of the Corporation as an entirety or substantially as an entirety (each of the foregoing being referred to as a “Transaction”), each share of Series G Convertible Preferred shall continue to remain outstanding if the Corporation is the Surviving Person (as defined below) of such Transaction, and shall be subject to all the provisions hereof, as in effect prior to such Transaction, or if the Corporation is not the Surviving Person, each share of Series G Convertible Preferred shall be exchanged in such Transaction for a new series of convertible preferred stock of the Surviving Person, or in the case of a Surviving Person other than a corporation, comparable securities of such Surviving Person, in either case having economic terms as nearly equivalent as possible to, and with the same voting and other rights as, the Series G Convertible Preferred, including entitling the holder thereof to receive, upon presentation of the certificate therefor to the Surviving Person subsequent to the consummation of such Transaction, the kind and amount of shares of stock and other securities and property receivable (including cash) upon the consummation of such Transaction by a holder of that number of shares of Class A Common Stock into which one share of Series G Convertible Preferred was convertible immediately prior to such Transaction. In case securities or property other than Common Stock shall be issuable or deliverable upon conversion as aforesaid, then all references in this paragraph (v) shall be deemed to apply, so far as appropriate and as nearly as may be, to such other securities or property. If the holders of Class A Common Stock have the opportunity to elect the form of consideration to be received by them in such Transaction, then from and after the effective date of such Transaction, the Series G Convertible Preferred shall be convertible into the consideration that a majority of the holders of the Class A Common Stock who made such election received in such Transaction.

Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, the Corporation will not effect any Transaction unless, prior to the consummation thereof, proper provision is made to ensure that the holders of shares of Series G Convertible Preferred will be entitled to receive the benefits afforded by this paragraph (v).

For purposes of this paragraph (v), “Surviving Person” shall mean the continuing or surviving Person of a merger, consolidation or other corporate combination, the Person receiving a transfer of all or substantially all of the properties and assets of the Corporation, or the Person consolidating with or merging into the Corporation in a merger, consolidation or other corporate combination in which the Corporation is the continuing or surviving Person, but in connection with which the Series G Convertible Preferred or Common Stock of the Corporation is exchanged, converted or reclassified into the securities of any other Person or cash or any other property.

The conversion price shall initially equal $0.75 per share, and shall increase from and after the Issue Date at a rate equal to the dividend rate on the Series G Convertible Preferred as set forth in paragraph (c)(i) (the “Conversion Price”). The Conversion Price shall be subject to adjustment as provided in this paragraph (g).

From and after an Initial Public Offering, the Corporation shall cause the shares of Class A Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series G Convertible Preferred (or in the case of a Holder’s election to convert into Class C Common Stock, upon conversion of such Class C Common Stock) to be approved for listing on the principal securities exchange on which the Class A Common Stock may at the time be listed for trading, subject to official notification of issuance, prior to the date of issuance thereof. Notwithstanding anything in this Certificate of Designation to the contrary, no Holders shall be entitled to exercise the conversion rights set forth in this paragraph (g) until such time as any conditions for listing the Class A Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series G Convertible Preferred on the principal securities exchange on which the Class A Common Stock may be listed for trading, if any and if applicable, have been satisfied.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this paragraph (g), there shall be no adjustment to the Conversion Price in connection with any issuance of additional shares of Series G Convertible Preferred or any other securities that are or may be or become issued or issuable in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Master Transaction Agreement.

Reissuance of Series G Convertible Preferred. Shares of Series G Convertible Preferred that have been issued and reacquired in any manner, including shares purchased or redeemed or exchanged, shall (upon compliance with any applicable provisions of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware) have the status of authorized and unissued shares of Preferred Stock undesignated as to series and may be redesignated and reissued as part of any series of Preferred Stock; provided that any issuance of such shares as Series G Convertible Preferred must be in compliance with the terms hereof.

Business Day. If any payment or redemption shall be required by the terms hereof to be made on a day that is not a Business Day, such payment or redemption shall be made on the immediately succeeding Business Day.

Reports. If the Corporation is no longer required to file annual or quarterly reports with the Commission pursuant to the Exchange Act, the Corporation will provide to the Holders such annual and quarterly financial statements as the Corporation would have been required to file with the Commission pursuant to Sections 13 and 15(d) of the Exchange Act had it been so subject without cost to the Holders.
