All Class B Common Stock shares beneficially owned by Timothy P. Horne are held individually by or in trust for the benefit of Timothy P. Horne, Daniel W. Horne, Deborah Horne, Tara V. Horne, Tiffany Horne Noonan and Peter W. Horne, and any voting trust certificates representing such shares, are subject to an Amended and Restated Stock Restriction Agreement (the “Agreement”).  Upon any proposed voluntary transfer or transfer by operation of law of Class B Common Stock or voting trust certificates representing such shares by any of the above stockholders, or upon the death of such a stockholder holding such shares or voting trust certificates, the other parties to the Agreement have a pro rata right of first refusal to purchase such shares (including a second opportunity to elect to purchase any shares not purchased under the first right of refusal).

 

The purchase price per share is the 15-day average trading price of the Issuer’s Class A Common Stock while publicly traded, except in the case of certain involuntary transfers, in which case the purchase price is book value.

 

This summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the Agreement which is incorporated herein by reference to Exhibit 2 to the Issuer’s Current Report on Form 8-K dated October 31, 1991, and to the text of Amendment No. 1 to the Agreement which is incorporated herein by reference to Exhibit 10.21 to the Issuer’s Annual Report on Form 10-K dated September 16, 1997.

Flowers (each, a “Successor Trustee” and collectively, the “Successor Trustees”), shall thereupon become co-trustees of the 1997 Voting Trust if such individuals are willing and able to succeed.  At any time, Timothy P. Horne, if then living and not subject to incapacity, may designate up to two additional persons, one to be designated as the primary designee (the “Primary Designee”) and the other as the secondary designee (“Secondary Designee”), to serve in the stead of any Successor Trustee who shall be unable or unwilling to serve as a trustee of the 1997 Voting Trust.  Such designations are revocable by Timothy P. Horne at any time prior to the time at which such designees become a trustee.  If any of the Successor Trustees is unable or unwilling or shall otherwise fail to serve as a trustee of the 1997 Voting Trust, or after becoming a co-trustee shall cease to serve as such for any reason, then a third person shall become a co-trustee with the remaining two trustees, in accordance with the following line of succession:  first, any individual designated as the Primary Designee, next, any individual designated as the Secondary Designee, and then, an individual appointed by the holders of a majority in interest of the voting trust certificates then outstanding. In the event that the Successor Trustees shall not concur on matters not specifically contemplated by the terms of the 1997 Voting Trust, the vote of a majority of the Successor Trustees shall be determinative.  No trustee or Successor Trustee shall possess the Determination Power unless it is specifically conferred upon such trustee pursuant to the provisions of the 1997 Voting Trust.

 

The 1997 Voting Trust expires on August 26, 2021, subject to extension on or after August 26, 2019 by stockholders (including the trustee of any trust stockholder, whether or not such trust is then in existence) who deposited shares of Class B Common Stock in the 1997 Voting Trust and are then living or, in the case of shares in the 1997 Voting Trust the original depositor of which (or the trustee of the original depositor of which) is not then living, the holders of voting trust certificates representing such shares. The 1997 Voting Trust may be amended by vote of the holders of a majority of the voting trust certificates then outstanding and

by the number of trustees authorized to take action at the relevant time. Shares may not be removed from the 1997 Voting Trust during its term without the consent of the trustees.

 

This summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the 1997 Voting Trust which is incorporated herein by reference to Exhibit 9.2 of the Issuer’s Annual Report on Form 10-K dated September 28, 1999 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
