NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing, of the mutual promises herein contained and of other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto hereby agree as follows:
1.Voting Obligations.
(a)If the votes conferred by the Shares collectively beneficially owned by the Investor and its Affiliates and Related Persons would confer votes in excess of 9.9% of the votes conferred by all of the Shares issued and outstanding at any time, then the collective voting power of the Investor and its Affiliates and Related Persons shall be




automatically and immediately reduced to 9.9% in the manner prescribed in Bye-Law 5.5.
(b)During the Standstill Effectiveness Period, the Investor and its Affiliates shall, and shall direct the Related Persons to, vote (including, if applicable, by delivering one or more proxies or through the execution of one or more written consents if shareholders of the Company are requested to vote through the execution of an action by written consent in lieu of any annual or special meeting of shareholders of the Company) the Common Shares and the Preference Shares owned by them or over which they have voting control, subject to the voting cut-back set forth in Section 1(a) above, to be present for quorum purposes, in favor of all those persons nominated to serve as directors of the Company by the Board or its Governance and Nominating Committee and against any nominee not so nominated.
2.Board Observer.
(a)Subject to Section 2(b), during the Standstill Effectiveness Period, the Investor shall have the right to designate one individual (such designee or its replacement pursuant to this Section 2, as applicable, the “Board Observer”) to attend in person or join telephonically all meetings of the Board in a non-voting, observer capacity; provided that, unless previously given permission by the Company, the Board Observer may not participate in any meeting of the Board while physically present in the United States unless at least one member of the Board is participating in such meeting while physically present in the United States. The Board Observer shall be given notice of all meetings of the Board in substantially the same manner and at substantially the same time as notice is sent to the members of the Board, and shall receive a copy of all notices, agendas and other material, written information distributed to all the members of the Board in substantially the same manner and at substantially the same time as sent to the members of the Board; provided that, as a condition to receiving such information, the Board Observer shall have entered into a mutually acceptable, customary confidentiality agreement with the Company with respect to all information so provided; provided, further, that the Company reserves the right to withhold any information and to exclude the Board Observer from the applicable portion of a meeting if the Board determines, in the exercise of its reasonable discretion, that access to such information or attendance at such portion of the meeting would result in (i) a loss of an attorney-client privilege or attorney work product protection or (ii) a conflict of interest (including information or meetings with respect to any action to be taken, or any determination to be made, by the Board regarding any transaction, agreement or dispute with the Investor or any of its Affiliates or any Related Persons).
(b)Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 2, the Investor shall not be entitled to designate a particular Board Observer pursuant to Section 2(a) in the event that
2



the Board reasonably determines in good faith that the designation of such individual would cause the Company to be not in compliance with applicable law or regulation. In such case described in the immediately preceding sentence, the Investor shall withdraw the designation of such proposed designee and, subject to Section 2(a), shall be permitted to designate a replacement therefor (which replacement designee shall also be subject to the requirements of this Section 2(b)).

(c)On or following the Restriction Expiration Date, if the Investor, any of its Affiliates or any Related Person seeks to transfer Shares or Warrants other than pursuant to a Distributed Sale, and the Last Reported Sale Price is less than the Book Value Per Share for any ten (10) Trading Days within a consecutive thirty (30) Trading Day period prior to the notification to the Company described in clause (i) below, then:
(i)Investor, its Affiliates and any Related Person shall be permitted to individually or collectively transfer to any Person Shares or Warrants without condition or restriction so long as, at least two (2) Business Days prior to entering into any definitive agreement with respect to such transfer (other than a customary confidentiality agreement), the transferor(s) delivers to the Company written notification of the number of Shares and Warrants proposed to be transferred, as applicable, the name of the proposed transferee and the price at which the securities are proposed to be transferred;

(iv)(A) if the Company does not deliver a Matching Offer within thirty (30) days of receipt by the Company of the notification referenced in Section 5(c)(i); or (B) if the sale to the Company is not consummated within fifteen (15) days (or any longer period required by applicable Law to consummate such sale) following acceptance by the Investor of the Matching Offer (each, a “Matching Offer Failure Date”), then the transferor(s) may thereafter sell the securities proposed to be transferred to the proposed transferee at or above the per share price which the Company was notified of pursuant to Section 5(c)(i);
(v)any sale of the securities proposed to be transferred to the proposed transferee pursuant to Section 5(c)(iv) may be made to the proposed transferee without condition and such transferee shall not become a Related Person or subject to this Agreement as a result of such transfer; and
(vi)if the sale to the proposed transferee is not agreed within six (6) months following the Matching Offer Failure Date, then the Investor, its Affiliates and any Related Person, as applicable, shall be required to again comply with the provisions of this Section 5(c) prior to another such sale; provided, that once executed within six (6) months any such transaction may be consummated after such six (6) month period subject to obtaining required regulatory approvals.
(d)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 5, the Investor, its Affiliates, and any Related Person may transfer Shares or Warrants without condition to any Person (or any Affiliate of such Person) set forth on the Agreed List so long as such Person and its Affiliates are not, and will not become as a result of such transfer, the beneficial owner following such transfer of twenty percent (20%) or more of the Fully Diluted Equity Outstanding. No such Person or Affiliate shall become a Related Person or subject to this Agreement as a result of any such transfer.
7



(e)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 5, the Investor and its Affiliates may transfer Shares, Warrants or the Upside Rights to Investor’s Affiliates; provided that, unless the transfer proposed to be undertaken will be a Distributed Sale, it shall be a condition precedent to any such transfer that the Affiliate to which such any such securities are proposed to be transferred, if not already a party to this Agreement, becomes a party to this Agreement by executing and delivering a joinder agreement hereto, in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Company, in which such Affiliate agrees to be subject, on a several but not joint basis with the Investor and any other Affiliates and Related Persons party thereto to all covenants and agreements of the Investor in Section 1, Section 3 and Section 5 under this Agreement.
(f)Investor and the Company agree that no Person to whom securities are permitted to be transferred pursuant to Section 5(a), Section 5(b)(ii), Section 5(c)(iv) and Section 5(d) shall be bound by the provisions of this Agreement as a result of such transfer. In the event of any transfer of certificated securities to such Persons (by the Investor or by any other Person), the Company shall promptly upon request by the Investor or upon otherwise becoming aware of such transfer remove any Investor Rights Agreement Legend from the applicable certificates and such Persons shall be entitled to receive from the Company, without expense to such Persons, the Investor or its Affiliates, a new instrument or certificate not bearing a legend stating such restriction. Neither the Investor nor any of its Affiliates shall be liable for the breach by any Related Person of any provision of this Agreement.

10.Specific Enforcement. The parties hereto agree that irreparable damage for which monetary relief, even if available, would not be an adequate remedy, would occur in the event that any provision of this Agreement is not performed in accordance with its specific terms or is otherwise breached, including if the parties hereto fail to take any action required of them hereunder to consummate this Agreement, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. The parties acknowledge and agree that (a) the parties shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions, specific performance or other equitable relief to prevent breaches of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions hereof in the courts described in Section 12(b) without proof of damages or otherwise, this being in addition to any other remedy to which they are entitled under this Agreement and (b) the right to specific enforcement is an integral part of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and without that right, neither the Company nor the Investor would have entered into this Agreement.

14



adequate remedy at law.

11.Severability. If any term or other provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced under any law or as a matter of public policy, all other conditions and provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement is not affected in any manner materially adverse to any party. If any provision of this Agreement is so broad as to be unenforceable, that provision shall be interpreted to be only so broad as is enforceable. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the parties to this Agreement shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the parties as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated by this Agreement be consummated as originally contemplated to the greatest extent possible.
12.Governing Law; Jurisdiction.
(a)This Agreement, and all actions (whether in contract, tort or statute) that may be based upon, arise out of or relate to this Agreement, or the negotiation, execution or performance of this Agreement, shall in all respects be governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York applicable to agreements made and to be performed entirely within such state without giving effect to any conflicts of law principles of such state that might refer the governance, construction or interpretation of such agreements to the laws of another jurisdiction.
(b)All actions arising out of or relating to the interpretation and enforcement of the provisions of this Agreement shall be heard and determined in the Courts of the State of New York sitting in the County of New York, the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and, in each case, any appellate court therefrom. The parties hereto hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such courts in any such actions and irrevocably waive the defense of an inconvenient forum or lack of jurisdiction to the maintenance of any such action. The consents to jurisdiction and venue set forth in this Section 12(b) shall not constitute general consents to service of process in the State of New York and shall have no effect for any purpose except as provided in this paragraph and shall not be deemed to confer rights on any Person other than the parties hereto. Each party hereto agrees that service of process upon such party in any action arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be effective if notice is given by overnight courier at the address set forth in Section 9 of this Agreement. The
15



parties hereto agree that a final judgment in any such action shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by applicable law; provided, however, that nothing contained in the foregoing shall restrict any party’s rights to seek any post-judgment relief regarding, or any appeal from, a final trial court judgment.
13.Waivers and Amendment. This Agreement may be changed, modified or amended, and the provisions and terms hereof may be waived, or the time for its performance extended, only by instrument in writing signed by each of the parties hereto, or, in the case of a waiver, by the party waiving compliance with such provision or term. Any change or modification to this Agreement shall be null and void, unless made by written amendment to this Agreement and signed by each of the parties hereto. Any waiver of any provision or term of this Agreement, or any extension in time for performance of such provision or term, shall be validly and sufficiently authorized for the purposes of this Agreement if, as to any party, it is authorized in writing by an authorized director or officer of such party. No delay on the part of any party in exercising any right, power or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other such right, power or privilege. No waiver of any breach of this Agreement shall be held to constitute a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach.
14.Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, and by the different parties to this Agreement in separate counterparts, each of which will be deemed to constitute an original, but all of which shall constitute one and the same agreement, and may be delivered by email or other electronic means intended to preserve the original graphic or pictorial appearance of a document, such delivery by email or other electronic means to be deemed as effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement.
15.Assignment. This Agreement and all of the provisions hereof will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable by and against, the parties to this Agreement and their respective successors and permitted assigns. Subject to Section 4, neither this Agreement nor any of the rights, interests or obligations hereunder may be assigned or delegated by any party without the prior written consent of the other party, and any attempted assignment without the prior written consent of the other party shall be void and have no effect; provided that Investor shall be entitled to collaterally assign and/or pledge its rights under this Agreement to any of its lenders and/or its Affiliates’ lenders.
16.Waiver of Jury Trial. EACH PARTY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT ANY CONTROVERSY WHICH MAY ARISE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IS LIKELY TO INVOLVE COMPLICATED AND DIFFICULT
16



ISSUES, AND THEREFORE IT HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY LITIGATION DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY. EACH PARTY CERTIFIES AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT (A) NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER, (B) IT UNDERSTANDS AND HAS CONSIDERED THE IMPLICATIONS OF SUCH WAIVER, (C) IT MAKES SUCH WAIVER VOLUNTARILY AND (D) IT HAS BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVER AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION 16.
