If the Board does not establish the number of Shares subject to the Initial Option Grant for a given newly-elected Director who is not an Employee prior to the date of grant for such Initial Option Grant, then the number shall be one thousand (1,000) Shares. If at the time a Director who is also an Employee or does not otherwise qualify as an outside director within the meaning of Section 162(m) of the Code (an “Outside Director”), commences service on the Board, such Director shall be entitled to an Initial Option Grant at such time as such Director subsequently is no longer an Employee or qualifies as an Outside Director and if such Director remains a Director.
