ARTICLE II

Restrictions and Adjustments

(a)
Except as otherwise provided in the Plan or this Agreement, Grantee may not sell, transfer, pledge, assign or otherwise dispose of the Restricted Stock Units granted pursuant to this Agreement.

(b)
This Award shall not entitle Grantee to any voting rights, dividends (other than Dividend Equivalents as provided in Article IV), rights upon liquidation or other rights of owners of the Company with respect to any Restricted Stock Units unless and until shares of Common Stock are issued to Grantee in respect of such Restricted Stock Units as provided herein.

ARTICLE III

Vesting, Forfeiture and Settlement

(a)
Unless vested earlier in accordance with other provisions of this Agreement, Restricted Stock Units shall vest on the fourth anniversary of the Grant Date, provided that Grantee has not Separated from Service or otherwise ceased to be an employee of the Company, an Affiliate or a Subsidiary prior to that vesting date.

(b)
Notwithstanding the provisions of Article III, Section (a) of this Agreement, in the event of Grantee's Separation from Service on account of death, Disability or Retirement prior to the fourth anniversary of the Grant Date, the Restricted Stock Units shall vest immediately; provided, however, that no such vesting shall occur upon a Separation from Service on account of Grantee's Retirement unless such Separation from Service occurs more than twelve months after the Grant Date.

(c)
Upon Grantee's Separation from Service or other termination of employment with the Company, its Affiliates and its Subsidiaries prior to the fourth anniversary of the Grant Date for any reason or under any circumstances other than those described in Article III, Section (b) above, all of the unvested Restricted Stock Units shall terminate and Grantee shall thereafter have no further rights or interests in such Restricted Stock Units.

(d)
The Company shall make payment to Grantee in settlement of all vested Restricted Stock Units on the earlier of (i) the fourth anniversary of the Grant Date, or (ii) if Grantee's Separation from Service occurs prior to the fourth anniversary of the Grant Date, within 90 days following such Separation from Service; provided that the timing of the actual payment within such 90-day period shall be in the sole discretion of the Company, and Grantee shall have no election with respect to the timing of such payment.






(e)
Vested Restricted Stock Units shall be settled by the issuance of a number of Shares equal to the number of vested Restricted Stock Units (except cash will be paid in lieu of fractional Restricted Stock Units).

Any provision of the Plan or this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, to the extent required by Section 409A of the Code and Treasury regulations issued thereunder, if Grantee is a “specified employee” within the meaning of Section 409A(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Code as of the date of Grantee's Separation from Service, no payment or other distribution of an amount pursuant to this Agreement that is deferred compensation subject to Section 409A of the Code that is to be made on account of such Separation from Service shall be made or commence sooner than six months from the date of such Separation from Service (or, if earlier, the date of Grantee's death). In such case, all payments that were scheduled to be made within such six-month period shall be accumulated without interest and paid in a single payment on the first day of the seventh calendar month following such Separation from Service.

ARTICLE IV

Dividend Equivalents

If a cash dividend is paid on the Common Stock while Grantee holds outstanding Restricted Stock Units that have not been settled, Grantee shall be credited with a dividend equivalent in an amount equal to the dividends Grantee would have received if Grantee had been the owner of a number of Shares equal to the number of Restricted Stock Units credited to Grantee on such dividend payment date (the “Dividend Equivalent”). Any such Dividend Equivalent shall be converted into additional Restricted Stock Units as of the dividend payment date by dividing the amount of the Dividend Equivalent by the Fair Market Value of a Share on the dividend payment date. Such additional Restricted Stock Units shall be subject to the same terms and conditions and shall vest in the same manner and at the same time as the Restricted Stock Units with respect to which the Dividend Equivalent is credited.

ARTICLE V

If a Corporate Event (as defined in Article 16 of the Plan) or a Change of Control (as defined below) occurs, then except as further provided in this paragraph, all Restricted Stock Units shall become immediately vested and shall be settled no later than 10 days following such Corporate Event or Change of Control, as applicable, in the manner set forth in Article III, Section (e). Notwithstanding the preceding, (i) no accelerated vesting shall occur pursuant to this paragraph within the first twelve months following the Grant Date, and (ii) no accelerated settlement shall occur pursuant to this paragraph, unless the Corporate Event or Change of Control, as applicable, also satisfies the requirements for a permitted distribution event with respect to Grantee for purposes of Code Section 409A(a)(2)(A)(v).

(i)
Any person becomes the beneficial owner of securities of the Company representing more than 50% of the combined voting power of the Company's then outstanding securities that have the right to vote for the election of directors generally. “Person” shall have the meaning

Continuing Directors cease for any reason to constitute a majority of the directors of the Company then serving. “Continuing Directors” means directors of the Company who were:

directors on the Grant Date, or

(iv)

ARTICLE VIII

Other Terms

(a)
Grantee understands that nothing in the Plan or this Agreement shall confer upon Grantee any right to continue in the employ of the Company, an Affiliate or a Subsidiary or interfere in any way with the right of the Company, an Affiliate or a Subsidiary to terminate his or her employment at any time, with or without cause.

(b)
This Agreement shall be non-transferable and non-assignable except by will and by the laws of descent and distribution to the extent that on the date of Grantee's death there were vested Restricted Stock Units that had not yet been settled.

(c)
Grantee or Successor of Grantee agrees that any dispute or disagreement which may arise hereunder shall be determined by the Board of Directors or the Committee in its sole discretion and judgment, and that any such determination and any interpretation by the Board of Directors or the Committee of the terms of the Plan or this Agreement shall be final and binding and conclusive, for all purposes, upon the Company, Grantee or the Successor of Grantee.

(g)
Any provision of this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, the Committee in its absolute discretion may accelerate the time of payment of any amount under this Agreement to or with respect to Grantee to the extent that such acceleration is a permitted exception under Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-3(j)(4) (or other applicable guidance issued by the Internal Revenue Service) that does not subject such accelerated payment to the tax imposed by Code Section 409A.
