NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual agreements hereinafter set forth, Executive and the Company have agreed and do hereby agree as follows:

During Executive’s employment with the Company, Executive shall report directly to the Chief Executive Officer of the Company (hereinafter referred to as the “Reporting Officer”). Executive shall have such powers and duties with respect to the Company as may reasonably be assigned to Executive by the Reporting Officer, to the extent consistent with Executive’s position. Executive agrees to devote all of Executive’s working time, attention and efforts to the Company and to perform the duties of Executive’s position in accordance with the Company’s policies as in effect from time to time. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary above, Executive may participate in civic and charitable activities, and may serve as member of the board of directors of such entities as may be approved from time to time in advance by the Reporting Officer, so long as such activities do not conflict with or interfere with Executive’s performance of his duties hereunder or compete with or present an actual or apparent conflict of interest for the Company, which shall be determined by the Reporting Officer and/or the Chief Legal Officer of the Company in his/her good faith judgment.

2A. TERM. The term of this Agreement shall commence on the Effective Date and shall terminate on the first anniversary thereof (the “Initial Term”); provided, that certain terms and conditions herein may specify a greater period of effectiveness; and further provided that this Agreement shall automatically renew for additional one year terms (each a “Renewal Term”, and collectively with the Initial Term, the “Term”), unless terminated by either party with written notice provided not less than ninety (90) days prior to the end of the then-current Term or Renewal Term (a “Notice of Non-Renewal”).

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, Executive’s employment with the Company is “at-will” and may be terminated at any time for any reason or no reason, with or without cause, by the Company or Executive, with or without notice. During the Term, Executive’s right to payments upon certain terminations of employment is governed by Section 1(d) of the Standard Terms and Conditions attached hereto. Following the expiration of the Term, upon the termination of Executive’s employment, the Company shall have no further obligation hereunder, except for the payment of Accrued Obligations.
