Participant acknowledges and agrees that the ultimate liability for all tax-related payments legally due by Participant is and remains Participant’s responsibility and may exceed the amount actually withheld by the Company. Participant further acknowledges that each of the Company and the Employer (a) makes no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any tax-related items in connection with any aspect of the Shares, the subsequent sale of Shares acquired under the Plan, and the receipt of dividends, if any; and (b) does not commit to and is under no obligation to structure the terms of the Award or any aspect of the Award to reduce or eliminate Participant’s tax liability or achieve any particular tax result. Further, if Participant has become subject to tax in more than one jurisdiction between the date of the Award and the date of any relevant taxable event, Participant acknowledges that the Company may be required to withhold or account for taxes in more than one jurisdiction, whether state, federal, or international.





(a)Notwithstanding any contrary provisions of this Agreement, no Shares or will be issued to Participant (or Participant’s estate or beneficiary) unless and until satisfactory arrangements (as determined by the Company in its sole discretion) have been made by Participant with respect to the payment of any taxes or tax-related items which the Company determines must be withheld with respect to such Shares. The Committee, in its sole and absolute discretion and pursuant to such procedures as it may specify from time to time, may permit Participant to satisfy such tax liability(ies), in whole or in part (without limitation), by: (i) paying cash, (ii) electing to have the Company withhold otherwise deliverable Shares having a fair market value equal to the minimum amount required to be withheld, (iii) delivering to the Company already vested and owned Shares having a fair market value equal to the amount required to be withheld; provided that such Shares have been held for at least the minimum period of time that would allow the Company to avoid adverse accounting consequences and satisfy all applicable securities laws, or (iv) selling a sufficient number of such Shares otherwise deliverable to Participant through such means as the Company may determine in its sole and absolute discretion (whether through a broker or otherwise) equal to the amount required to be withheld. To the extent determined appropriate by the Company, in its sole and absolute discretion, the Company will have the right (but not the obligation) to satisfy any tax liability of the Participant by (X) reducing the number of Shares otherwise deliverable to Participant, (Y) withholding from Participant’s wages or other cash compensation payable to Participant by the Company, or (Z) grossing up the grant to so provide for the collection of such taxes. If Participant fails to make satisfactory arrangements for the payment of any required tax-related items hereunder at the time any applicable Shares otherwise are scheduled to be issued pursuant to Section 2, Participant will permanently forfeit such Shares, and the Shares will be returned to the Company at no cost to the Company.


(b)It is intended that this Award satisfy the requirements of Section 409A of the Code, and any ambiguous provisions will be construed in a manner that is compliant with or exempt from the application of Section 409A of the Code.
