Market Value of withheld Shares shall be determined in the same manner as the value of the Shares includible in income of the Grantees.

 

SECTION 13.  TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT, TRANSFER, LEAVE OF ABSENCE, ETC.

 

(a)                                 Termination of Employment.  If the Grantee’s employer ceases to be a Subsidiary, the Grantee shall be deemed to have terminated employment for purposes of the Plan.

 

(b)                                 For purposes of the Plan, the following events shall not be deemed a termination of employment:

 

(i)                                     a transfer to the employment of the Company from a Subsidiary or from the Company to a Subsidiary, or from one Subsidiary to another; or

 

(ii)                                  an approved leave of absence for military service or sickness, or for any other purpose approved by the Company, if the employee’s right to re-employment is guaranteed either by a statute or by contract or under the policy pursuant to which the leave of absence was granted or if the Administrator otherwise so provides in writing.

 

SECTION 14.  AMENDMENTS AND TERMINATION

 

The Board may, at any time, amend (including to increase the number of Shares reserved and available for issuance hereunder) or discontinue the Plan and the Administrator may, at any time, amend or cancel any outstanding Award for the purpose of satisfying changes in law or for any other lawful purpose, but no such action shall adversely affect rights under any outstanding Award without the holder’s consent.  Except as provided in Section 3(c) or 3(d), without prior shareholder approval, in no event may the Administrator exercise its discretion to reduce the exercise price of outstanding Share Options or Share Appreciation Rights or effect repricing through cancellation and re-grants or cancellation of Share Options or Share Appreciation Rights in exchange for cash or other Awards.  To the extent required under the rules of any securities exchange or market system on which the Shares are listed, Plan amendments shall be subject to approval by the Company shareholders entitled to vote at a meeting of shareholders.  Nothing in this Section 14 shall limit the Administrator’s authority to take any action permitted pursuant to Section 3(c) or 3(d).

 

SECTION 15.  STATUS OF PLAN

 

With respect to the portion of any Award that has not been settled or exercised and any payments in cash, Shares or other consideration not received by a Grantee, a Grantee shall have no rights greater than those of a general creditor of the Company unless the Administrator shall otherwise expressly determine in connection with any Award or Awards.  In its sole discretion, the Administrator may authorize the creation of trusts or other arrangements to meet the Company’s obligations to deliver Shares or make payments with respect to Awards, provided that the existence of such trusts or other arrangements is consistent with the foregoing sentence.

 

SECTION 16.  GENERAL PROVISIONS

 

(a)                                 No Distribution.  The Administrator may require each person acquiring Shares pursuant to an Award to represent to and agree with the Company in writing that such person is acquiring the Shares without a view to their distribution.

 

(b)                                 Delivery of Share Certificates.  Share certificates to Grantees under this Plan shall be deemed delivered for all purposes when the Company or a share transfer agent of the Company has mailed such certificates to the Grantee at the Grantee’s last known address on file with the Company.  Uncertificated Shares shall be deemed delivered for all purposes when the Company or a share transfer agent of the Company shall have given to the Grantee by electronic mail (with proof of receipt) or by mail to the Grantee at the Grantee’s last known address on file with the Company, notice of issuance and recorded the issuance in its records (which may include electronic “book entry” records).  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Plan, the Company shall not be required to issue or deliver any certificates evidencing Shares pursuant to the exercise of any Award, unless and until the Administrator has determined, with advice of counsel (to the extent the Administrator deems such advice necessary
