      (i) In the case of an Incentive Stock Option

 

 

 

 

      (A) granted to an Employee who, at the time of the grant of such Incentive Stock Option, owns stock representing more than ten percent (10%) of the total combined voting power of all classes of stock of the Company or any Parent or Subsidiary, the per Share exercise price shall be no less than 110% of the Fair Market Value per Share on the date of grant;

      (ii) In the case of a Nonstatutory Stock Option intended to qualify as performance-based compensation under Section 162(m) of the Code, the per Share Exercise Price shall be no less than 100% of the Fair Market Value on the date of grant.

 

 

 

 

      (b) The consideration to be paid for the Shares to be issued upon exercise of an Option, including the method of payment, shall be determined by the Administrator and may consist entirely of (1) cash,

 

 

 

(2) check, (3) promissory note (subject to the loan prohibition provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002), (4) other Shares that (x) in the case of Shares acquired upon exercise of an Option either have been owned by the Optionee for more than six months on the date of surrender or were not acquired, directly or indirectly, from the Company, and (y) have a Fair Market Value on the date of surrender equal to the aggregate exercise price of the Shares as to which said Option shall be exercised, (5) a broker-assisted cashless exercise arrangement (subject to the loan prohibition provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002), (6) any combination of the foregoing methods of payment, or (7) such other consideration and method of payment for the issuance of Shares to the extent permitted under applicable law.

In the case of an Incentive Stock Option, the method of payment shall be limited to the method(s) expressly permitted by the applicable stock option agreement, however, such agreement may provide that the methods set forth in Sections 9(b)(3) and 9(b)(4) are only available at the discretion of the Administrator.

      10.     Exercise of Option.

 

 

 

      (aProcedure for Exercise; Rights as a Shareholder. Any Option granted hereunder shall be exercisable at such times and under such conditions as determined by the Administrator, including, without limitation, performance criteria with respect to the Company and/or the Optionee, and as shall be permissible under the terms of the Plan.

      An Option may not be exercised for a fraction of a Share.

      An Option shall be deemed to be exercised when written notice of such exercise has been given to the Company in accordance with the terms of the Option by the person entitled to exercise the Option and full payment for the Shares with respect to which the Option is exercised has been received by the Company. Full payment may, as authorized by the Administrator, consist of any consideration and method of payment allowable under Section 9(b) of the Plan. Until the issuance (as evidenced by the appropriate entry on the books of the Company or of a duly authorized transfer agent of the Company) of the stock certificate evidencing such Shares, no right to vote or receive dividends or any other rights as a shareholder shall exist with respect to the Optioned Stock, notwithstanding the exercise of the Option. The Company shall issue (or cause to be issued) such stock certificate as soon as reasonably practicable after exercise of the Option. No adjustment will be made for a dividend or other right for which the record date is prior to the date the stock certificate is issued, except as provided in Section 14 of the Plan.

      Exercise of an Option in any manner shall result in a decrease in the number of Shares which thereafter may be available, both for purposes of the Plan and for sale under the Option, by the number of Shares as to which the Option is exercised.

 

 

 

      (b) Termination of Status as an Employee, Director or Consultant. In the event of termination of an Optionee’s Continuous Status as an Employee, Director or Consultant, such Optionee may, but only within ninety (90) days (or such other period of time as is determined by the Administrator, with such determination in the case of an Incentive Stock Option being made at the time of grant of the Option) after the date of such termination (but in no event later than the date of expiration of the term of such Option as set forth in the Option Agreement), exercise his or her Option to the extent that he or she was entitled to exercise it at the date of such termination. To the extent that the Optionee was not entitled to exercise the Option at the date of such termination, or if the Optionee does not exercise such Option (which he or she was entitled to exercise) within the time specified herein, the Option shall terminate.

 

 

 

      (c) Disability of Optionee. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 10(b) above, in the event of termination of an Optionee’s Continuous Status as an Employee, Director or Consultant as a result of his or her total and permanent disability (as defined in Section 22(e)(3) of the Code), he or she may, but only within six (6) months (or such other period of time as is determined by the Administrator, with such determination in the case of an Incentive Stock Option being made at the time of grant of the Option) from the date of such termination (but in no event later than the date of expiration of the term of such

 

 

 

Option as set forth in the Option Agreement), exercise his or her Option to the extent he or she was entitled to exercise it at the date of such termination. To the extent that he or she was not entitled to exercise the Option at the date of termination, or if he does not exercise such Option (which he was entitled to exercise) within the time specified herein, the Option shall terminate.

 

 

 

      (d) Death of Optionee. In the event of the death of an Optionee:

 

 

 

 

      (i) during the term of the Option who is at the time of his death an Employee, Director or Consultant and who shall have been in Continuous Status as an Employee, Director or Consultant since the date of grant of the Option, the Option may be exercised, at any time within six (6) months (or such other period of time as is determined by the Administrator, with such determination in the case of an Incentive Stock Option being made at the time of grant of the Option) following the date of death (but in no event later than the date of expiration of the term of such Option as set forth in the Option Agreement), by the Optionee’s estate or by a person who acquired the right to exercise the Option by bequest or inheritance but only to the extent of the right to exercise that would have accrued had the Optionee continued living and remained in Continuous Status as an Employee, Director or Consultant six (6) months (or such other period of time as is determined by the Administrator as provided above in this subparagraph (i)) after the date of death, subject to the limitation set forth in Section 5(b); or

 

 

 

      (ii) within ninety (90) days (or such other period of time as is determined by the Administrator, with such determination in the case of an Incentive Stock Option being made at the time of grant of the Option) after the termination of Continuous Status as an Employee, Director or Consultant, the Option may be exercised, at any time within six (6) months following the date of death (but in no event later than the date of expiration of the term of such Option as set forth in the Option Agreement), by the Optionee’s estate or by a person who acquired the right to exercise the Option by bequest or inheritance, but only to the extent of the right to exercise that had accrued at the date of termination.

      11.     Withholding Taxes. As a condition to the exercise of Options granted hereunder, the Optionee shall make such arrangements as the Administrator may require for the timely satisfaction of any federal, state, local or foreign withholding tax obligations that may arise in connection with the exercise, receipt or vesting of such Option (the “Withholding Obligations”). The Company shall not be required to issue any Shares under the Plan until such withholding obligations are fully satisfied.

      12.     Stock Withholding to Satisfy Withholding Obligations. Optionees shall timely satisfy the Withholding Obligations in such manner permitted by the Administrator, which may include, at the discretion of the Administrator, one or some combination of the following methods: (a) cash payment by the Optionee, (b) deduction from the Optionee’s current compensation, (c) surrender by the Optionee to the Company of Shares that, in the case of Shares previously acquired from the Company, have been owned by the Optionee for more than six months on the date of surrender or (d) the Optionee’s election to have the Company withhold Shares from the Shares to be issued upon exercise of the Option. For this purpose, the fair market value of the Shares to be withheld shall be determined on the date the Option is exercised.

      All elections by an Optionee to have Shares withheld to satisfy tax withholding obligations shall be made in writing in a form acceptable to the Administrator and shall be subject to the following restrictions:

 

 

 

      (a) the election must be made on or prior to the applicable Option exercise date;

 

 

 

      (b) all elections shall be subject to the consent or disapproval of the Administrator.

      13.     Non-Transferability of Options. Except as otherwise provided in the applicable stock option agreement (in the case of a Nonstatutory Stock Option), the Option may not be sold, pledged, assigned, hypothecated, transferred, or disposed of in any manner other than by will or by the laws of descent or distribution. Except as otherwise provided in the applicable stock option agreement (in the case of a Nonstatutory Stock Option), an Option may be exercised, during the lifetime of the Optionee, only by the Optionee or by the guardian or legal representative of the Optionee. An Option granted under the Plan shall

not be anticipated, assigned, attached, garnished, optioned, transferred or made subject to any creditor’s process, whether voluntarily, involuntarily or by operation of law. Any act in violation of this Section 13 shall be void.

      14.     Adjustments Upon Changes in Capitalization or Merger. Subject to any required action by the shareholders of the Company (a) the number and class of shares of Common Stock or other stock or securities covered by each outstanding Option, (b) the number and class of shares of Common Stock or other stock or securities that have been authorized for issuance under Section 3 of the Plan but as to which no Options have yet been granted or which have been returned to the Plan upon cancellation or expiration of an Option, (c) the maximum number of Shares for which Options may be granted to any employee under Section 8 of the Plan, and (d) the per Share exercise price of each outstanding Option, may be appropriately adjusted (if at all) in the event of a subdivision of the outstanding Shares, stock split, reverse stock split, stock dividend, dividend payable in a form other than Shares in an amount that has a material effect on the price of the Shares, consolidation, combination or reclassification of the Shares, recapitalization, merger, liquidation, spin-off, split-up, distribution, exchange of Shares, repurchase of Shares, change in corporate structure or other similar occurrence. Such adjustment shall be made by the Administrator, whose determination in that respect shall be final, binding and conclusive, and the Administrator may determine that no adjustment is appropriate and that none shall be made.

      If by reason of an adjustment pursuant to this Section 14, an Optionee’s Option shall cover additional or different shares of stock or securities, then such additional or different shares and the Option in respect thereof shall be subject to the terms, conditions and restrictions which were applicable to the Option prior to such adjustment.

      In the event of the proposed dissolution or liquidation of the Company, the Option will terminate immediately prior to the consummation of such proposed action, unless otherwise provided by the Administrator. The Administrator may, in the exercise of its sole discretion in such instances, declare that any Option shall terminate as of a date fixed by the Administrator and give the Optionee the right to exercise his or her Option as to all or any part of the Optioned Stock, including Shares as to which the Option would not otherwise be exercisable.

      In the event of a proposed sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or the merger of the Company with or into another corporation, the Option shall be assumed, or a substantially equivalent option shall be substituted, by the successor corporation or a parent or subsidiary of such successor corporation, unless (a) the Administrator determines, in the exercise of its sole discretion and in lieu of such assumption or substitution, that the Optionee shall have the right to exercise the Option as to some or all of the Optioned Stock, including Shares as to which the Option would not otherwise be exercisable or (b) if the Option is otherwise fully exercisable, the Administrator determines in its sole discretion that the Option shall not be assumed or substituted. If the Administrator makes an Option exercisable in lieu of assumption or substitution in the event of a merger or sale of assets (or if the Option is otherwise fully exercisable and the Administrator determines in its sole discretion that the Option shall not be assumed or substituted), the Administrator shall notify the Optionee that the Option shall be exercisable for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of such notice, and the Option will terminate upon the expiration of such period.

      15.     Time of Granting Options. The date of grant of an Option shall, for all purposes, be the date on which the Administrator makes the determination to grant such Option or such other date as is determined by the Administrator. Notice of the determination shall be given to each Optionee to whom an Option is so granted within a reasonable time after the date of such grant, except that persons subject to Section 16 of the Exchange Act shall be notified of their Option grant in a manner to facilitate timely reporting under Section 16 of the Exchange Act.

      16.     Amendment and Termination of the Plan.

 

 

 

      (a) Amendment and Termination. The Board may amend or terminate the Plan from time to time in such respects as the Board may deem advisable, subject to any shareholder approval required by applicable law or deemed advisable by the Board for purposes of qualifying Options granted hereunder as

 

 

 

performance-based compensation under Section 162(m) of the Code or for any other purpose deemed advisable by the Board.

 

 

 

      (b) Effect of Amendment or Termination. Any such amendment or termination of the Plan shall not affect Options already granted and such Options shall remain in full force and effect as if this Plan had not been amended or terminated, unless mutually agreed otherwise between the Optionee and the Administrator, which agreement must be in writing and signed by the Optionee and the Company.

      17.     Conditions Upon Issuance of Shares. Shares shall not be issued pursuant to the exercise of an Option unless the exercise of such Option and the issuance and delivery of such Shares pursuant thereto shall comply with all relevant provisions of law, including, without limitation, the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, the Exchange Act, the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, and the requirements of any stock exchange upon which the Shares may then be listed, and shall be further subject to the approval of counsel for the Company with respect to such compliance.

      As a condition to the exercise of an Option, the Company may require the person exercising such Option to represent and warrant at the time of any such exercise that the Shares are being purchased only for investment and without any present intention to sell or distribute such Shares if, in the opinion of counsel for the Company, such a representation is required by any of the aforementioned relevant provisions of law.

      18.     Reservation of Shares. The Company, during the term of this Plan, will at all times reserve and keep available such number of Shares as shall be sufficient to satisfy the requirements of the Plan.

      The inability of the Company to obtain authority from any regulatory body having jurisdiction, which authority is deemed by the Company’s counsel to be necessary to the lawful issuance and sale of any Shares hereunder, shall relieve the Company of any liability in respect of the failure to issue or sell such Shares as to which such requisite authority shall not have been obtained.

      19.     Option Agreement. Options shall be evidenced by written option agreements in such form as the Administrator shall approve. Such Option shall be subject to all applicable terms and conditions of the Plan and may be subject to any other terms and conditions which are not inconsistent with the Plan and which the Administrators deems appropriate for inclusion in an option agreement. The option agreement shall specify whether the Option is intended to be an Incentive Stock Option or a Nonstatutory Stock Option. The provisions of the various option agreements entered into under the Plan need not be identical. Options may be granted in consideration of a reduction in the Optionee’s other compensation.

      20.     Shareholder Approval.

 

 

 

      (a) The Plan was approved by the shareholders of the Company on June 4, 2004.
