9.10 Compliance With IRS Safe Harbor
The Board of Managers shall monitor the Transfers of interests in the Company to determine (i) whether such interests are being traded on an established securities market or a secondary market (or the substantial equivalent thereof) within the meaning of Section 7704 of the Code, and (ii) whether additional transfers of interests would result in the Company being unable to qualify for at least one of the safe harbors set forth in Regulations Section 1.7704-1 (or such other guidance subsequently published by the Internal Revenue Service setting forth safe harbors under which interests will not be treated as readily tradable on a secondary market (or the substantial equivalent thereof) within the meaning of Section 7704 of the Code) (the Safe Harbors). The Board of Managers shall take all steps reasonably necessary or appropriate to prevent any trading of interests or any recognition by the Company of transfers made on such markets and, except as otherwise provided herein, to ensure that at least one of the Safe Harbors is met.
