COMCAST CORPORATION

2002 RESTRICTED STOCK PLAN

(As Amended And Restated, Effective January 1, 2005)

   1. BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE

      (a)   Amendment and Restatement of Plan. COMCAST CORPORATION, a Pennsylvania corporation, hereby amends and restates the Comcast Corporation 2002 Restricted Stock Plan (the “Plan”), effective January 1, 2005. The purpose of the Plan is to promote the ability of Comcast Corporation to recruit and retain employees and enhance the growth and profitability of Comcast Corporation by providing the incentive of long-term awards for continued employment and the attainment of performance objectives.

      (b)   Purpose of the Amendment; Credits Affected. The Plan has been amended and restated, effective January 1, 2005 in order (i) to preserve the favorable tax treatment available to amounts deferred pursuant to the Plan before January 1, 2005 and the earnings credited in respect of such amounts (each a “Grandfathered Amount”) in light of the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004, IRS Notice 2005-1, and the regulations issued by the Department of the Treasury thereunder (collectively, the “AJCA”), and (ii) with respect to all other amounts eligible to be deferred under the Plan, to comply with the requirements of the AJCA. Except as provided in Paragraph 8(f)(iii) of the Plan, Grandfathered Amounts will continue to be subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan as in effect prior to the Amendment Date. All amounts eligible to be deferred under the Plan other than Grandfathered Amounts will be subject to the terms of this amendment and restatement of the Plan and the AJCA.

      (c)    Reservation of Right to Amend to Comply with AJCA. The Board and the Committee reserve the right to amend the Plan, either retroactively or prospectively, in whatever respect is required to achieve and maintain compliance with the requirements of the AJCA.

      (d)   Deferral Provisions of Plan Unfunded and Limited to Select Group of Management or Highly Compensated Employees. Deferral Eligible Grantees and Non-Employee Directors may elect to defer the receipt of Restricted Stock and Restricted Stock Units as provided in Article VIII. The deferral provisions of Article VIII and the other provisions of the Plan relating to the deferral of Restricted Stock and Restricted Stock Units are unfunded and maintained primarily for the purpose of providing a select group of management or highly compensated employees the opportunity to defer the receipt of compensation otherwise payable to such eligible employees in accordance with the terms of the Plan.

      (a)   Time of Grant. All Awards shall be granted within ten (10) years from the date of adoption of the Plan by the Board.

      (b)   Terms of Awards. The provisions of Awards need not be the same with respect to each Grantee. No cash or other consideration shall be required to be paid by the Grantee in exchange for an Award.

      (c)    Awards and Agreements. Each Grantee shall be provided with an agreement specifying the terms of an Award. In addition, a certificate shall be issued to each Grantee in respect of Restricted Shares subject to an Award. Such certificate shall be registered in the name of the Grantee and shall bear an appropriate legend referring to the terms, conditions and restrictions applicable to such Award. The Company may require that the certificate evidencing such Restricted Stock be held by the Company until all restrictions on such Restricted Stock have lapsed.

      (d)   Restrictions. Subject to the provisions of the Plan and the Award, the Committee may establish a period commencing with the Date of Grant during which the Grantee shall not be permitted to sell, transfer, pledge or assign Restricted Stock awarded under the Plan.

      (e)    Vesting/ Lapse of Restrictions. Subject to the provisions of the Plan and the Award, a Vesting Date for Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units subject to an Award shall occur at such time or times and on such terms and conditions as the Committee may determine and as are set forth in the Award; provided, however, that except as otherwise provided by the Committee, a Vesting Date shall occur only if the Grantee is an employee of a Participating Company as of such Vesting Date, and has been an employee of a Participating Company continuously from the Date of Grant. The Award may provide for Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units to vest in installments, as determined by the Committee. The Committee may, in its sole discretion, waive, in whole or in part, any remaining conditions to vesting with respect to such Grantee’s Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units. All references to Shares in Awards granted before the consummation of the AT&T Broadband Transaction as to which a Vesting Date has not occurred shall be deemed to be references to Special Common Stock.

      (f)    Rights of the Grantee. Grantees may have such rights with respect to Shares subject to an Award as may be determined by the Committee and set forth in the Award, including the right to vote such Shares, and the right to receive dividends paid with respect to such Shares. A Grantee whose Award consists of Restricted Stock Units shall not have the right to vote or to receive dividend equivalents with respect to such Restricted Stock Units.

      (g)   Termination of Grantee’s Employment. A transfer of an Eligible Employee between two employers, each of which is a Participating Company, shall not be deemed a termination of employment. In the event that a Grantee terminates employment with all Participating Companies, all Restricted Shares and/or Restricted Stock Units as to which a Vesting Date has not occurred shall be forfeited by the Grantee and deemed canceled by the Company.

 

      (h)   Delivery of Shares. Except as otherwise provided by Paragraph 8, when a Vesting Date occurs with respect to all or a portion of an Award of Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units, the Company shall notify the Grantee that a Vesting Date has occurred, and shall deliver to the Grantee (or the Grantee’s Successor-in-Interest) a certificate for the number of Shares as to which a Vesting Date has occurred (or in the case of Restricted Stock Units, the number of Shares represented by such Restricted Stock Units) without any legend or restrictions (except those that may be imposed by the Committee, in its sole judgment, under Paragraph 9(a)). The right to payment of any fractional Shares that may have accrued shall be satisfied in cash, measured by the product of the fractional amount times the Fair Market Value of a Share at the Vesting Date, as determined by the Committee.

   8. DEFERRAL ELECTIONS

      A Grantee may elect to defer the receipt of Shares that would otherwise be issuable with respect to Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units as to which a Vesting Date has occurred, as provided by the Committee in the Award, consistent, however, with the following:

      (a)   Initial Election.

 

 

 

 

(i)

Election. Each Grantee who is a Non-Employee Director or a Deferral Eligible Employee shall have the right to defer the receipt of some or all of the Shares issuable with respect to Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units as to which a Vesting Date has not yet occurred, by filing an Initial Election to defer the receipt of such Shares on a form provided by the Committee for this purpose.

 

 

 

 

(ii)

Deadline for Initial Election. No Initial Election to defer the receipt of Shares issuable with respect to Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units that are not Performance-Based Compensation shall be effective unless it is filed with the Committee on or before the 30th day following the Date of Grant provided that pursuant to Q-A 21 of IRS Notice 2005-1, to the extent provided by the Committee or its delegate, a Grantee may, on or before March 15, 2005, make an Initial Election with respect to Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units that were granted before January 1, 2005 and were not vested on December 31, 2004, and with respect to Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units that may be granted after December 31, 2004, provided further that the Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units to which the Initial Election relates have not been vested at the time the Initial Election is filed. No Initial Election to defer the receipt of Shares issuable with respect to Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units that are Performance-Based Compensation shall be effective unless it is filed with the Administrator at least six months before the end of the Performance Period during which such Performance-Based Compensation may be earned.

 

 

 

 

(iii)

Special Transition Rule. Pursuant to Q-A 20 of IRS Notice 2005-1, to the extent provided by the Committee or its delegate, a Grantee may, on or before December 31, 2005, terminate the deferral of Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units pursuant to an Initial Election or cancel an Initial Election with regard to amounts deferred under the Plan, provided that if a Grantee terminates the deferral of Compensation pursuant to an Initial Election under this Paragraph 8(a)(iii), the Company shall pay the Grantee the Compensation that would have been deferred if the deferral of Compensation had not been terminated, and provided further that if a Grantee cancels an Initial Election with regard to amounts deferred under the Plan, the Company shall pay the Grantee the amount deferred pursuant to such Initial Election through the cancellation date, plus income, gains and losses credited with respect thereto as provided in this Article VIII.

      (b)   Effect of Failure of Vesting Date to Occur. An Election shall be null and void if a Vesting Date with respect to the Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units does not occur before the distribution date for Shares issuable with respect to such Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units identified in such Election.

      (c)    Deferral Period. Except as otherwise provided in Paragraph 8(d), all Shares issuable with respect to Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units that are subject to an Election shall be delivered to the Grantee (or the Grantee’s Successor-in-Interest) without any legend or restrictions (except those that may be imposed by the Committee, in its sole judgment, under Paragraph 9(a)), on the distribution date for such Shares designated by the Grantee on the most recently filed Election. Subject to acceleration or deferral pursuant to Paragraph 8(d) or Paragraph 11, no distribution may be made earlier than January 2nd of the third calendar year beginning after the Vesting Date, nor later than January 2nd of the eleventh calendar year beginning after the Vesting Date. The distribution date may vary with each separate Election.

      (d)   Additional Elections. Notwithstanding anything in this Paragraph 8(d) to the contrary, no Subsequent Election shall be effective until 12 months after the date on which such Subsequent Election is made.

 

 

 

 

(i)

Each Active Grantee who has previously made an Initial Election to receive a distribution of part or all of his or her Account, or who, pursuant to this Paragraph 8(d)(i) has made a Subsequent Election to defer the distribution date for Shares issuable with respect to Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units for an additional period from the originally-elected distribution date, may elect to defer the distribution date for a minimum of five and a maximum of ten additional years from the previously-elected distribution date, by filing a Subsequent Election with the Committee on or before the close of business at least one year before the date on which the distribution would otherwise be made.

 

 

 

 

(ii)

A Deceased Grantee’s Successor-in-Interest may elect to: (A) file a Subsequent Election to defer the distribution date for the Deceased Grantee’s Shares issuable with respect to Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units for a minimum of five additional years from the date payment would otherwise be made; or (B) file an Acceleration Election to accelerate the distribution date for the Deceased Grantee’s Shares issuable with respect to Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units from the date payment would otherwise be made to a date that is as soon as practicable following the Deceased Grantee’s death. A Subsequent Election must be filed with the Committee at least one year before the date on which the distribution would otherwise be made, as reflected on the Deceased Grantee’s last Election. An Acceleration Election pursuant to this Paragraph 8(d)(ii) must be filed with the Committee as soon as practicable following the Deceased Grantee’s death, as determined by the Committee.

 

 

 

 

(iii)

A Disabled Grantee may elect to accelerate the distribution date of the Disabled Grantee’s Shares issuable with respect to Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units from the date payment would otherwise be made to a date that is as soon as practicable following the date the Disabled Grantee became disabled. An Acceleration Election pursuant to this Paragraph 8(d)(iii) must be filed with the Committee as soon as practicable following the Deceased Grantee’s death, as determined by the Committee.

 

 

 

 

(iv)

A Retired Grantee may elect to defer the distribution date of the Retired Grantee’s Shares issuable with respect to Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units for a minimum of five additional years from the date payment would otherwise be made (provided that if a Subsequent Election is made pursuant to this Paragraph 8(d)(iv), the Retired Grantee’s Account shall be distributed in full on or before the later of the fifth anniversary of the Retired Grantee’s Normal Retirement or the fifth anniversary of the date that payment would otherwise have been made. A Subsequent Election must be filed with the Committee at least one year before the date on which the distribution would otherwise be made, as reflected on the Retired Grantee’s last Election.

 

 

 

 

(v)

Discretion to Provide for Distribution in Full Upon or Following a Change of Control. To the extent permitted by IRS Notice 2005-1, in connection with a Change of Control, and

 

 

 

 

 

for the 12-month period following a Change of Control, the Committee may exercise its discretion to terminate the deferral provisions of the Plan and, notwithstanding any other provision of the Plan or the terms of any Initial Election or Subsequent Election, distribute the Account of each Grantee in full and thereby effect the revocation of any outstanding Initial Elections or Subsequent Elections.

 

 

 

 

(vi)

Hardship. Notwithstanding the terms of an Initial Election or Subsequent Election, if, at the Grantee’s request, the Committee determines that the Grantee has incurred a Hardship, the Committee may, in its discretion, authorize the immediate distribution of all or any portion of the Grantee’s Account.

 

 

 

 

(vii)

Other Acceleration Events. To the extent permitted by Q-A 15 of IRS Notice 2005-1, notwithstanding the terms of an Initial Election or Subsequent Election, distribution of all or part of a Grantee’s Account may be made:

 

 

 

 

 

(1)

To the extent necessary to fulfill a domestic relations order (as defined in section 414(p)(1)(B) of the Code).

 

 

 

 

(2)

To the extent necessary to comply with a certificate of divestiture (as defined in section 1043(b)(2) of the Code).

 

 

 

 

(3)

To pay the Federal Insurance Contribution Act (“FICA”) tax imposed under sections 3101 and 3121(v)(2) of the Code on compensation deferred under the Plan (the “FICA Amount”) plus the income tax at source on wages imposed under section 3401 of the Code with respect to the FICA Amount, and to pay the additional income tax at source on wages attributable to the pyramiding section 3401 wages and taxes, provided that the total amount distributable under this Paragraph 8(d)(vii)(3) shall not exceed the sum of the FICA Amount and the income tax withholding related to such FICA Amount.

      (e)    Book Accounts. An Account shall be established for each Grantee who makes an Election. Deferred Stock Units shall be credited to the Account as of the date an Election becomes effective. Each Deferred Stock Unit will represent, as applicable, either a hypothetical share of Common Stock or a hypothetical share of Special Common Stock credited to the Account in lieu of delivery of the Shares to which the Election applies. To the extent an Account is deemed invested in the Income Fund, the Committee shall credit earnings with respect to such Account at the Applicable Interest Rate, as further provided in Paragraph 8(g).

      (f)    Plan-to-Plan Transfers. The Administrator may delegate its authority to arrange for plan-to-plan transfers as described in this Paragraph 8(f) to an officer of the Company or committee of two or more officers of the Company.

 

 

 

 

(i)

The Administrator may, with a Grantee’s consent, make such arrangements as it may deem appropriate to transfer the Company’s obligation to pay benefits with respect to such Grantee which have not become payable under this Plan, to another employer, whether through a deferred compensation plan, program or arrangement sponsored by such other employer or otherwise, or to another deferred compensation plan, program or arrangement sponsored by the Company or an Affiliate. Following the completion of such transfer, with respect to the benefit transferred, the Grantee shall have no further right to payment under this Plan.

 

 

 

 

(ii)

The Administrator may, with a Grantee’s consent, make such arrangements as it may deem appropriate to assume another employer’s obligation to pay benefits with respect to such Grantee which have not become payable under the deferred compensation plan, program or arrangement under which such future right to payment arose, to the Plan, or to assume a future payment obligation of the Company or an Affiliate under another plan, program or arrangement sponsored by the Company or an Affiliate. Upon the

 

 

 

 

 

completion of the Plan’s assumption of such payment obligation, the Administrator shall establish an Account for such Grantee, and the Account shall be subject to the rules of this Plan, as in effect from time to time.

 

 

 

 

(iii)

Pursuant to Q-A 19(c) of IRS Notice 2005-1, to the extent provided by the Committee or its delegate, a Grantee may, on or before December 31, 2005, with respect to all or any portion of his or her Grandfathered Amount under the Plan as in effect on December 31, 2004, make new payment elections as to the form and timing of payment of such amounts as may be permitted under this Plan, provided that following the completion of such new payment election, such amounts shall not be treated as a Grandfathered Amount, but instead shall be treated as a non-Grandfathered Amount, subject to the rules of this Plan.

      (g)   Crediting of Income, Gains and Losses on Accounts. Except as otherwise provided in Paragraph 8(h), the value of a Grantee’s Account as of any date shall be determined as if it were invested in the Company Stock Fund.

      (h)   Diversification Elections.

 

 

 

 

(i)

In General. A Diversification Election shall be available: (A) at any time that a Registration Statement filed under the 1933 Act (a “Registration Statement”) is effective with respect to the Plan; and (B) with respect to a Special Diversification Election, if and to the extent that the opportunity to make such a Special Diversification Election has been approved by the Committee. No approval is required for a Diversification Election other than a Special Diversification Election.

 

 

 

 

(ii)

Committee Approval of Special Diversification Elections. The opportunity to make a Special Diversification Election and the extent to which a Special Diversification Election applies to Deferred Stock Units credited to the Company Stock Fund may be approved or rejected by the Committee in its sole discretion. A Special Diversification Election shall only be effective if (and to the extent) approved by the Committee.

 

 

 

 

(iii)

Timing and Manner of Making Diversification Elections. Each Grantee and, in the case of a Deceased Grantee, the Successor-in-Interest, may make a Diversification Election to convert up to 40 percent (or in the case of a Special Diversification Election, up to the approved percentage) of Deferred Stock Units attributable to each grant of Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units credited to the Company Stock Fund to the Income Fund. No deemed transfers shall be permitted from the Income Fund to the Company Stock Fund. Diversification Elections under this Paragraph 8(h)(iii) shall be prospectively effective on the later of: (A) the date designated by the Grantee on a Diversification Election filed with the Committee; or (B) the business day next following the lapse of six months from the date Deferred Stock Units subject to the Diversification Election are credited to the Grantee’s Account. In no event may a Diversification Election be effective earlier than the business day next following the lapse of six (6) months from the date Deferred Stock Units are credited to the Account following the lapse of restrictions with respect to an Award.

 

 

 

 

(iv)

Timing of Credits. Account balances subject to a Diversification Election under this Paragraph 8(h) shall be deemed transferred from the Company Stock Fund to the Income Fund immediately following the effective date of such Diversification Election. The value of amounts deemed invested in the Income Fund immediately following the effective date of a Diversification Election shall be based on hypothetical sales of Common Stock or Special Common Stock, as applicable, underlying the liquidated Deferred Stock Units at Fair Market Value as of the effective date of a Diversification Election.

      (i)    Effect of Distributions within Five Years of Effective Date of Diversification Election. If, pursuant to Paragraphs 8(a) through 8(d), Shares distributable with respect to Deferred Stock Units credited to the Company Stock Fund that are attributable to an Award as to which a Diversification Election was made are distributed on or before the fifth anniversary of the effective date of such Diversification Election (and, in the case of a Grantee who is a Successor-in-Interest, whether or not such Diversification Election was made by a Grantee’s predecessor-in-interest), then, except as may otherwise be provided by the Committee in its sole and absolute discretion, the following percentage of the Grantee’s Account credited to the Income Fund and attributable to such Diversification Election shall be distributed simultaneously with such Shares, without regard to any election to the contrary:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Distributable Percentage of Corresponding

 

 

 

Time that Shares are Distributable

 

 

 Income Fund Amount

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On or before the third anniversary of a Diversification Election

 

 

 60%

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the third anniversary of a Diversification Election and on or before the fourth anniversary of a Diversification Election

 

 

 40%

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the fourth anniversary of a Diversification Election and on or before the fifth anniversary of a Diversification Election

 

 

 20%

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the fifth anniversary of a Diversification Election

 

 

 0%

 

 

 

 

 

 

      (j)    Grantees’ Status as General Creditors. A Grantee’s right to delivery of Shares subject to an Election under this Paragraph 8, or to amounts deemed invested in the Income Fund pursuant to a Diversification Election, shall at all times represent the general obligation of the Company. The Grantee shall be a general creditor of the Company with respect to this obligation, and shall not have a secured or preferred position with respect to such obligation. Nothing contained in the Plan or an Award shall be deemed to create an escrow, trust, custodial account or fiduciary relationship of any kind. Nothing contained in the Plan or an Award shall be construed to eliminate any priority or preferred position of a Grantee in a bankruptcy matter with respect to claims for wages.

      (k)   Non-Assignability, Etc. The right of a Grantee to receive Shares subject to an Election under this Paragraph 8, or to amounts deemed invested in the Income Fund pursuant to a Diversification Election, shall not be subject in any manner to attachment or other legal process for the debts of such Grantee; and no right to receive Shares or cash payments hereunder shall be subject to anticipation, alienation, sale, transfer, assignment or encumbrance.

   9. SECURITIES LAWS; TAXES

      (a)   Securities Laws. The Committee shall have the power to make each grant of Awards under the Plan subject to such conditions as it deems necessary or appropriate to comply with the then-existing requirements of the 1933 Act and the 1934 Act, including Rule 16b-3. Such conditions may include the delivery by the Grantee of an investment representation to the Company in connection with a Vesting Date occurring with respect to Shares subject to an Award, or the execution of an agreement by the Grantee to refrain from selling or otherwise disposing of the Shares acquired for a specified period of time or on specified terms.

      (b)   Taxes. Subject to the rules of Paragraph 9(c), the Company shall be entitled, if necessary or desirable, to withhold the amount of any tax, charge or assessment attributable to the grant of any Award or the occurrence of a Vesting Date with respect to any Award. The Company shall not be required to deliver Shares pursuant to any Award until it has been indemnified to its satisfaction for any such tax, charge or assessment.

      (c)    Payment of Tax Liabilities; Election to Withhold Shares or Pay Cash to Satisfy Tax Liability.

 

 

 

 

(i)

In connection with the grant of any Award or the occurrence of a Vesting Date under any Award, the Company shall have the right to (A) require the Grantee to remit to the Company an amount sufficient to satisfy any federal, state and/or local withholding tax requirements prior to the delivery or transfer of any certificate or certificates for Shares subject to such Award, or (B) take any action whatever that it deems necessary to protect its interests with respect to tax liabilities. The Company’s obligation to make any delivery or transfer of Shares shall be conditioned on the Grantee’s compliance, to the Company’s satisfaction, with any withholding requirement.

 

 

 

 

(ii)

Except as otherwise provided in this Paragraph 9(c)(ii), any tax liabilities incurred in connection with grant of any Award or the occurrence of a Vesting Date under any Award under the Plan shall be satisfied by the Company’s withholding a portion of the Shares subject to such Award having a Fair Market Value approximately equal to the minimum amount of taxes required to be withheld by the Company under applicable law, unless otherwise determined by the Committee with respect to any Grantee. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Committee may permit a Grantee to elect one or both of the following: (A) to have taxes withheld in excess of the minimum amount required to be withheld by the Company under applicable law; provided that the Grantee certifies in writing to the Company at the time of such election that the Grantee owns Other Available Shares having a Fair Market Value that is at least equal to the Fair Market Value to be withheld by the Company in payment of withholding taxes in excess of such minimum amount; and (B) to pay to the Company in cash all or a portion of the taxes to be withheld in connection with such grant or Vesting Date. In all cases, the Shares so withheld by the Company shall have a Fair Market Value that does not exceed the amount of taxes to be withheld minus the cash payment, if any, made by the Grantee. Any election pursuant to this Paragraph 9(c)(ii) must be in writing made prior to the date specified by the Committee, and in any event prior to the date the amount of tax to be withheld or paid is determined. An election pursuant to this Paragraph 9(c)(ii) may be made only by a Grantee or, in the event of the Grantee’s death, by the Grantee’s legal representative. No Shares withheld pursuant to this Paragraph 9(c)(ii) shall be available for subsequent grants under the Plan. The Committee may add such other requirements and limitations regarding elections pursuant to this Paragraph 9(c)(ii) as it deems appropriate.

   10. CHANGES IN CAPITALIZATION

      The aggregate number of Shares and class of Shares as to which Awards may be granted and the number of Shares covered by each outstanding Award shall be appropriately adjusted in the event of a stock dividend, stock split, recapitalization or other change in the number or class of issued and outstanding equity securities of the Company resulting from a subdivision or consolidation of the Shares and/or other outstanding equity security or a recapitalization or other capital adjustment (not including the issuance of Shares and/or other outstanding equity securities on the conversion of other securities of the Company which are convertible into Shares and/or other outstanding equity securities) affecting the Shares which is effected without receipt of consideration by the Company. The Committee shall have authority to determine the adjustments to be made under this Paragraph 10 and any such determination by the Committee shall be final, binding and conclusive.

   11. TERMINATING EVENTS

      The Committee shall give Grantees at least thirty (30) days’ notice (or, if not practicable, such shorter notice as may be reasonably practicable) prior to the anticipated date of the consummation of a Terminating Event. The Committee may, in its discretion, provide in such notice that upon the consummation of such Terminating Event, any conditions to the occurrence of a Vesting Date with respect to an Award of Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units (other than Restricted Stock or Restricted

Stock Units that have previously been forfeited) shall be eliminated, in full or in part. Further, the Committee may, in its discretion, provide in such notice that notwithstanding any other provision of the Plan or the terms of any Election made pursuant to Paragraph 8, upon the consummation of a Terminating Event, Shares issuable with respect to Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units subject to an Election made pursuant to Paragraph 8 shall be transferred to the Grantee, and all amounts credited to the Income Fund shall be paid to the Grantee.
