credited or recorded, refunded or otherwise paid over to, for or on behalf of a Participant. The amounts collected from each Participant may be commingled with the general assets of the Company and may be used for any corporate purpose.

TERMINATION OF PURCHASE RIGHTS.    A Participant may, through notification to the Plan Administrator or its designee by the due date specified by the Plan Administrator prior to the close of the Offering Period, terminate his or her outstanding purchase right and receive a refund of the amounts deducted from his or her earnings under the terminated right. The Participant will not be eligible to rejoin the Offering Period following the termination of the purchase right and will have to re-enroll in the Plan in accordance with the requirements outlined in Section 6 should he or she wish to resume participation in a subsequent Offering Period.

TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT.    If a Participant ceases to be an Employee for any reason during an Offering Period, his or her outstanding purchase right will immediately terminate and all sums previously collected from the Participant under the terminated right will be refunded.

EXERCISE.    Each outstanding purchase right will be exercised automatically as of the last day of the Offering Period. The exercise of the purchase right is to be effected by applying the amount credited to each Participant's account on the last day of the Offering Period to the purchase of a number of whole shares of Common Stock at the purchase price in effect for the Offering Period. No purchase rights granted under the Plan may be exercised to any extent unless the shares of Common Stock to be issued upon such exercise under the Plan are covered by an effective registration statement pursuant to the Securities Act and the Plan is believed by the Plan Administrator to be in material compliance with all applicable federal, state, foreign, and other securities and other laws applicable to the Plan. If, on the purchase date during any Offering Period hereunder the shares of Common Stock are not so registered or the Plan is not in such compliance, no purchase rights granted under the Plan or any Offering Period shall be exercisable on such purchase date. If, on the purchase date under any Offering Period hereunder, the shares of Common Stock are not registered and the Plan is not in such compliance, purchase rights granted under the Plan which are not in compliance shall not be exercisable and all payroll deductions and/or other contributions accumulated during the Offering Period shall be refunded to the Participants, unless the Plan Administrator determines to extend the Offering Period. The provisions of this Section 7(f) shall comply with the requirements of Section 423(b)(5) of the Code to the extent applicable.

PRORATION OF PURCHASE RIGHT.    Should the total number of shares of Common Stock for which the outstanding purchase rights are to be exercised on any particular date exceed the number of shares then available for issuance under the Plan, the available shares will be allocated pro-rata on a uniform and non-discriminatory basis, and any amounts credited to the accounts of Participants will, to the extent not applied to the purchase of Common Stock, be promptly refunded.

RIGHTS AS STOCKHOLDER.    A Participant will have no rights as a stockholder with respect to shares subject to any purchase right held by such individual under the Plan until that right is exercised and Common Stock is credited to the Participant's account. No adjustments will be made for any dividends or distributions for which the record date is prior to such date.

RECEIPT OF STOCK.    As soon as practicable after the end of the Offering Period, the Participant will be entitled to receive either a stock certificate for the number of purchased shares or confirmation from a broker designated by the Company that the Participant's account at the broker has been credited with the number of purchased shares.

ASSIGNABILITY.    No purchase right granted to a Participant will be assignable or transferable and a purchase right will be exercisable only by the Participant.

LIMITATIONS.    Payroll deductions for purchase rights during a calendar year shall cease when such deductions for a Participant exceed $25,000 (or such other maximum as may be prescribed from time to time by the Code) in accordance with the provisions of Section 423(b)(8) of the Code. No Participant shall be granted a right to purchase Common Stock under this plan:

if such Participant, immediately after his or her election to purchase the Common Stock, would own stock possessing more than five percent of the total combined voting power or value of all classes of stock of the Company or its parent or subsidiary, computed in accordance with Section 423(b)(3) of the Code; or
