Manner of Exercise of Committee Authority. The Committee, and not the Board, shall exercise sole and exclusive discretion (i) on any matter relating to a Participant then subject to Section 16 of the Exchange Act with respect to the Company to the extent necessary in order that transactions by such Participant shall be exempt under Rule 16b-3 under the Exchange Act, (ii) with respect to any Award that is intended to qualify as “performance-based compensation” under Section 162(m), to the extent necessary in order for such Award to so qualify; and (iii) with respect to any Award to an Independent Director.

The express grant of any specific power to the Committee, and the taking of any action by the Committee, shall not be construed as limiting any power or authority of the Committee. The Committee may delegate to members of the Board, or officers or managers of the Company or any Related Entity, or committees thereof, the authority, subject to such terms and limitations as the Committee shall determine, to perform such functions, including administrative functions as the Committee may determine to the extent that such delegation will not result in the loss of an exemption under Rule 16b-3(d)(1) for Awards granted to Participants subject to Section 16 of the Exchange Act in respect of the Company and will not cause Awards intended to qualify as “performance-based compensation” under Code Section 162(m) to fail to so qualify.

Manner of Exercise of Committee Authority. Actions of the Committee may be taken by the vote of a majority of its members present at a meeting (which may be held telephonically). Any action taken by written instrument signed by a majority of the Committee members, and action so taken, will be fully as effective as if it had been taken by a vote at a meeting. The Committee may allocate among its members and delegate to any person who is not a member of the Committee, any of its powers, responsibilities or duties. In delegating its authority the Committee will consider the extent to which any delegation may cause an Award to fail to be deductible under Prior Section 162(m) or to fail to meet the requirements of Rule 16b-3.

The Committee may delegate to members of the Board, or officers or managers of the Company or any Subsidiary, or committees thereof, the authority, subject to such terms and limitations as the Committee shall determine, to perform such functions, including administrative functions as the Committee may determine to the extent that such delegation will not result in the loss of an exemption under Rule 16b-3(d)(1) for Awards granted to Participants subject to Section 16 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, in respect of the Company and will not cause Awards intended to qualify as “performance-based compensation” under Code Section 162(m) to fail to so qualify. It is the Committee’s intention that the Performance-Based Vesting Awards shall qualify as performance-based compensation that shall be exempt from the deduction limitations under Section 162(m) of the Code, and that they therefore be granted under and be subject to the applicable sections of the Company’s Incentive Compensation Plan relating to awards intended to satisfy the Section 162(m) requirements (including the limitations on the amount of such awards that have been approved by shareholders). The Committee may appoint agents to assist it in administering the Plan.
