The transferee of this Debenture shall be bound by the provisions of this Debenture. The register of the transfer of this Debenture shall occur upon the delivery of this Debenture, endorsed by the registered Holder or his duly authorized attorney, signature guaranteed, to the Company or its transfer agent. Each Debenture instrument issued upon the transfer of this Debenture shall have the restrictive legend contained herein conspicuously imprinted on it.
