5. Suspension of Calculation Period.
(a) If Counterparty concludes that it will be engaged in a distribution of the Shares for purposes of Regulation M, Counterparty agrees that it will, upon the earlier to occur of (x) the commencement of the restricted period (as defined in Regulation M) or (y) the public announcement of the transaction resulting in such restricted period, direct GS&Co. not to purchase Shares in connection with hedging any Transaction during such restricted period.
