Certain Provisions Applicable to Restricted Shares. The Committee may grant Restricted Shares to certain eligible persons at any time. In granting Restricted Shares, the Committee will determine in its sole discretion the period or periods during which the restrictions on transferability applicable to such Restricted Shares will be in force (the “Restricted Period”). During the Restricted Period applicable to each grant of Restricted Shares, such Restricted Shares 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 Shares may not be assigned or transferred except by will or by the laws of descent and distribution. With respect to each grant of Restricted Shares, the Committee will determine in its sole discretion the restrictions on vesting which will apply to the Restricted Shares 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 Shares free and clear of all restrictions on transferability. The Company will not be obligated to deliver any Restricted Shares free and clear of the restrictions on transferability until the Company has satisfied itself that such delivery complies with all applicable laws and regulations.
