any Hedging Transaction (as defined below) relating to the Common Stock (each of the foregoing referred to as a “Disposition) during the period commencing on the date hereof and continuing until, and including, the date that is 90 days after the date of the final prospectus supplement relating to the Public Offering (the “Lock-Up Period). The foregoing restriction is expressly intended to preclude the undersigned from engaging in any Hedging Transaction or other transaction which is designed to or reasonably expected to lead to or result in a Disposition during the Lock-Up Period even if the securities would be disposed of by someone other than the undersigned. “Hedging Transaction means any short sale (whether or not against the box) or any purchase, sale or grant of any right (including, without limitation, any put or call option) with respect to any security (other than a broad-based market basket or index) that includes, relates to or derives any significant part of its value from the Common Stock.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the undersigned may transfer any or all of the shares of Common Stock or other Company securities (including securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for shares of Common Stock) (i) by gift, will or intestacy, (ii) to an immediate family member or a trust formed for the benefit of an immediate family member, (iii) if the undersigned is a trust, to a trustor or beneficiary of the trust, (iv) in a distribution to partners, members or shareholders of the undersigned, (v) acquired in open market transactions after the completion of the Public Offering, (vi) to any corporation, partnership, limited liability company or other entity all of the beneficial ownership interests of which are held by the undersigned or the immediate family of the undersigned in a transaction not involving a disposition for value, (vii) pursuant to a bona fide third party tender offer, merger, consolidation or other similar transaction made to all holders of the Common Stock involving a change of control of the Company (including voting in favor of any such transaction or taking any other action in connection with such transaction), provided that in the event that the tender offer, merger, consolidation or other such transaction is not completed, the Common Stock owned by the undersigned shall remain subject to the restrictions contained in this Lock-Up Agreement; provided, however, it shall be a condition to any transfer permitted under clause (i), (ii), (iii), (iv) or (vi) that the transferee execute an agreement stating that the transferee is receiving and holding the securities subject to the provisions of this Lock-Up Agreement; provided further that, for clause (i), (ii), (iii), (iv) or (vi), the transfer does not trigger any filing or reporting requirement or obligation or result in any other voluntary or mandatory public disclosure, including but not limited to Form 4 of Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. For purposes of this paragraph, “immediate family member” means any relationship by blood, marriage, domestic partnership or adoption, not more remote than a first cousin.

In addition, the restrictions set forth in this Lock-Up Agreement shall not prohibit or restrict the undersigned from (i) establishing a trading plan meeting the requirements of Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), provided that no sales of Common Stock shall occur under such plan and no public disclosure of any such action shall be required or shall be made voluntarily by any person prior to the expiration of the 90-day period referred to above, or (ii) exercising an option to purchase shares of Common Stock granted under any stock-based compensation plan of the Company, provided that the underlying shares of Common Stock shall continue to be subject to the restrictions on transfer set forth in this Lock-Up Agreement.
