ARTICLE 6
EQUITY COMPENSATION

6.1.    INITIAL RESTRICTED STOCK GRANT.

(a)    Subject to share availability under the Incentive Plan and the terms of this Section 6.1(a), each Independent Director elected or appointed to the Board prior to the date that the Company has issued 12,500,000 Shares in the aggregate from its Offerings (the “Minimum Issuance Date”) shall receive an award of shares of Restricted Stock (the “Initial Restricted Stock Grant”) on the last business day of the first full calendar quarter immediately following the Minimum Issuance Date (the “Initial Grant Date”), provided such Independent Director remains an Independent Director as of the Initial Grant Date. The number of shares of Restricted Stock granted as the Initial Restricted Stock Grant is set forth on Schedule I. Such shares of Restricted Stock shall be subject to the terms and restrictions described below in Section 6.1(b) and shall be in addition to the Annual Restricted Stock Grant (as defined in Section 6.2). The Minimum Issuance Date occurred during the fourth quarter of calendar year 2018, and, accordingly, the Initial Restricted Stock Grant will be made on March 29, 2019, to Eligible Participants who were serving as Independent Directors as of the Minimum Issuance Date. For the avoidance of doubt, any person who becomes an Eligible Participant after the Minimum Issuance Date shall not receive an Initial Restricted Stock Grant.

(b)    Shares of Restricted Stock granted pursuant to the Initial Restricted Stock Grant under this Section 6.1 shall be evidenced by a written Award Certificate, and shall be subject to the terms and conditions described herein and in the Incentive Plan and Award Certificate. Unless and until provided otherwise by the Board, the shares of Restricted Stock granted pursuant to the Initial Restricted Stock Grant shall vest and become non-forfeitable in three equal annual installments on each of the first three anniversaries of the Initial Grant Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing vesting schedules, the shares of Restricted Stock granted pursuant to the Initial Restricted Stock Grant shall become fully vested on the earlier occurrence of (i) the termination of the grantee’s service as a director of the Company due to his or

her death or Disability, or (ii) a Change in Control of the Company. If the grantee’s service as a director of the Company terminates other than as described in clause (i) of the foregoing sentence, then the grantee shall forfeit all of his or her right, title and interest in and to any unvested shares of Restricted Stock as of the date of such termination from the Board and such Restricted Stock shall be reconveyed to the Company without further consideration or any act or action by the grantee.

6.2    ANNUAL RESTRICTED STOCK GRANT.

(a)    Subject to share availability under the Incentive Plan and the terms of this Section 6.2(a), each Eligible Participant shall receive an award of shares of Restricted Stock upon his or her initial election or subsequent re-election to the Board (the “Annual Restricted Stock Grant”). The dollar value of the Annual Restricted Stock Grant is set forth on Schedule I, which may be amended from time to time by the Board. The Annual Restricted Stock Grant shall be granted on the third business day following the date of the Annual Meeting at which an Eligible Participant is elected or re-elected to the Board (the “Annual Grant Date”). The number of shares in the Annual Restricted Stock Grant shall be determined by (i) dividing the Annual Restricted Stock Grant dollar value as in effect for that Plan Year by the Fair Market Value of the Class D Stock on the Annual Grant Date, and (ii) rounding to the nearest whole number. Such shares of Restricted Stock shall be subject to the terms and restrictions described below in Section 6.2(b). A pro rata Annual Restricted Stock Grant will be paid to any person who becomes an Eligible Participant on a date other than the beginning of a Plan Year, based on the number of full months remaining in the Plan Year prior to the next Annual Meeting. The grant of such prorated Annual Restricted Stock Grant will be made on the date that the person first becomes an Eligible Participant.

(b)    Shares of Restricted Stock granted pursuant to the Annual Restricted Stock Grant under this Section 6.2 shall be evidenced by a written Award Certificate, and shall be subject to the terms and conditions described herein and in the Incentive Plan and Award Certificate. Unless and until provided otherwise by the Board, the shares of Restricted Stock granted pursuant to the Annual Restricted Stock Grant shall vest and become non-forfeitable at the point in time immediately preceding the first Annual Meeting that occurs following the Annual Grant Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing vesting schedules, the shares of Restricted Stock granted pursuant to the Annual Restricted Stock Grant shall become fully vested on the earlier occurrence of (i) the termination of the grantee’s service as a director of the Company due to his or her death or Disability, or (ii) a Change in Control of the Company. If the grantee’s service as a director of the Company terminates other than as described in clause (i) of the foregoing sentence, then the grantee shall forfeit all of his or her right, title and interest in and to any unvested shares of Restricted Stock as of the date of such termination from the Board and such Restricted Stock shall be reconveyed to the Company without further consideration or any act or action by the grantee.

AMENDMENT, MODIFICATION AND TERMINATION

7.1.    AMENDMENT, MODIFICATION AND TERMINATION. The Board may, at any time and from time to time, amend, modify or terminate the Plan without stockholder approval; provided, however, that if an amendment to the Plan would, in the reasonable opinion of the Board, require stockholder approval under applicable laws, policies or regulations or the applicable listing or other requirements of a securities exchange on which the Stock is listed or traded, then such amendment shall be subject to stockholder approval; and provided further, that the Board may condition any other amendment or modification on the approval of stockholders of the Company for any reason.
