2. (2) Non-voting common shares contain an automatic conversion feature as follows: Each issued and outstanding Non-Voting Common Share shall automatically be converted into one (1) Common Share (the "Conversion Rate") upon the transfer of such Non-Voting Common Share (or any security convertible to or exercisable for such Non-Voting Common Share) in (a) a widespread public distribution, including pursuant to a registration statement filed with and declared effective by the SEC or pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act, (b) a transfer in which no transferee (or group of associated transferees) would receive more than 2% of any class of Voting Securities or (c) a transfer to a transferee that controls more than 50% of the Voting Securities without any transfer from the transferor. The foregoing automatic conversion may occur as to some or all of the Non-Voting Common Shares held by any holder.
