Certain Provisions Applicable to Restricted Share Units. The Committee may grant Restricted Share Units to certain eligible persons at any time. In granting Restricted Share Units the Committee will determine in its sole discretion the Restricted Period. During the Restricted Period applicable to each grant of Restricted Share Units, such Restricted Share Units may not be sold, assigned, transferred or otherwise disposed of, or mortgaged, pledged or otherwise encumbered. Furthermore, a grantee’s eventual right, if any, to such Restricted Share Units may not be assigned or transferred except by will or by the laws of descent and distribution. With respect to each grant of Restricted Share Units the Committee will determine in its sole discretion the restrictions on vesting which will apply to the Restricted Share Units for the Restricted Period. If the Committee deems restrictions on vesting inappropriate for any grantee, it may approve the award and delivery to such grantee of all or any portion of the Restricted Share Units free and clear of all restrictions on transferability. The Company will not be obligated to deliver any Restricted Share Units free and clear of the restrictions on transferability until the Company has satisfied itself that such delivery complies with all applicable laws and regulations. Each Restricted Share Unit may, at the discretion of the Committee, be credited with cash and stock dividends paid by the Company in respect of one share of Class A Common Stock or Class B Common Stock, as applicable (“Dividend Equivalents”). Upon the expiration of the Restricted Period and the lapse of the vesting requirements, if any, with respect to any outstanding Restricted Share Units, the Company shall deliver to the grantee, or his or her beneficiary, one share of Class A Common Stock or Class B Common Stock as applicable, for each outstanding Restricted Share Unit and cash equal to any Dividend Equivalents credited with respect to such vested Restricted Share Unit or the Committee may, in its discretion, pay cash or a combination of cash and shares in lieu of delivering shares for such vested Restricted Share Units. The Committee also may, in its discretion, delay delivery of the shares, cash or combination thereof in respect of such vested Restricted Share Unit beyond the expiration of the Restricted Period.
