Additionally, payment of the Second Installment will be contingent upon approval of the Board.
Each Installment of the Retention Award is subject to clawback and repayment by the executive if, prior to the one year anniversary of the payment of each Installment, the executive voluntarily resigns or the executive?s employment is terminated by the Company with cause (as defined in the Letter Agreement).?
