Exercise Fair Market Value means, as of any date, the last sales price for a Share (or if a Share was not traded on such date, on the next preceding day on which sales of a Share were reported) as quoted on the NASDAQ National Market, or on any other national exchange registered under the Exchange Act upon which the Common Stock is then listed, for the last market trading day prior to such date.
Grant Price means the date on which this MVSSAR is granted to the Holder, as specified in Part I.
Maximum Value per MVSSAR means the maximum total dollar value of USD$20 that can accrue to the Holder upon the exercise of one MVSSAR such that the Holder is never entitled to receive more than USD$20 in Exercise Fair Market Value of Shares upon exercise of one MVSSAR.
