Except as contemplated or permitted by the Agreement, upon the execution hereof, all prior proxies given by the undersigned with respect to the Excess Shares are hereby revoked and no subsequent proxies regarding the Excess Shares will be given until such time as this proxy shall be terminated in accordance with its terms. Any obligation of the undersigned hereunder shall be binding upon the successors and assigns of the undersigned.
