Options Not Qualifying as Incentive Stock Options
With respect to all or any portion of any Option granted under the Plan not qualifying as an incentive stock option under Section 422 of the Code, such Option shall be considered as a Stock Option granted under this Plan for all purposes. Further, this Plan and any ISO Options granted hereunder shall be deemed to have incorporated by reference all the provisions and requirements of Section 422 of the Code (and the Treasury Regulations issued thereunder) which are required to provide that all ISO Options granted hereunder shall be incentive stock options described in Section 422 of the Code. Further, in the event that the Committee grants ISO Options under this Plan to a Participant, and, in the event that the applicable limitation contained in Section 3.2 (b) herein is exceeded, then, such ISO Options in excess of such limitation shall be treated as Stock Options under this Plan subject to the terms and provisions of the applicable Stock Option Agreement, except to the extent modified to reflect recharacterization of the ISO Options as Stock Options.
