Black-Out Periods — In order to minimize the potential for prohibited “insider” trading, the Company may establish periods from time to time during which you may not engage in transactions involving the Company’s stock (“Black-Out Periods”). Notwithstanding any other provisions herein, Restrictions will not lapse with respect to any


 

Units during an applicable Black-Out Period and the applicable period during which Units shall be subject to the Restrictions shall be extended until the end of such Black-Out Period.
