The treatment of any unvested portion of an officer's restricted cash award upon a termination event shall be in accordance with each officer's respective employment agreement and all restricted cash awards will be subject to such other terms and conditions consistent with the form of Restricted Cash Incentive Plan Agreement attached hereto. Approximately twenty percent of the incentive cash bonuses in respect of 2013 performance to be paid to Timothy J. Conway, Peter A.

One-third of each officer's restricted cash award, plus any corresponding investment income for the period, will vest and no longer be subject to any restrictions on each of the first three anniversaries of the date of issuance.
