Each Non-Employee who has received an Option pursuant to the preceding sentence shall also automatically receive, as of each subsequent Grant Date, an Option to purchase 10,000 Shares, provided that the individual shall receive an Option on any such subsequent Grant Date only if he or she both (a) is a Non-Employee Director on the Grant Date, and (b) has served as a Non-Employee Director for the entire period since the last Grant Date.

6.2.
Trustee Tax Tracks. If the Company elects to grant Options through (i) the Capital Gains Tax Track Through a Trustee, or (ii) the Income Tax Track Through a Trustee, then, in accordance with the requirements of Section 102 of the Ordinance, the Company shall appoint a Trustee who will hold in trust on behalf of each Israeli Participant the Options and the Shares issued upon exercise of such Options.
 
The Holding Period for the Options will be as follows:
 
 
(1)
The Capital Gains Tax Track Through a Trustee – if the Company elects to Award the Options according to the provisions of this track, then the minimum Holding Period needed to benefit from that Capital Gain Tax Track will be twenty-four (24) months from the end of the tax year in which the Options were Awarded to the Trustee on behalf of the Israeli Participant, or such shorter period as may be approved by the Israeli Tax Authorities.
 
 
(2)
Income Tax Track Through a Trustee – if the Company elects to Award Options according to the provisions of this track, then the minimum Holding Period needed to benefit from that Income Tax Through a Trustee Track will be twelve (12) months from the end of the tax year in which the Options were Awarded to the Trustee on behalf of the Israeli Participant, or such shorter period as may be approved by the Israeli Tax Authorities.
 
Subject to Section 102 of the Ordinance, Israeli Participants who wish to benefit from the reduced tax shall not be able to receive from the Trustee, nor shall they be able to sell or dispose of Shares before the end of the applicable Holding Period. If an Israeli Participant sells or removes the Shares underlying an Award form the Trustee before the end of the applicable Holding Period (the "Breach"), such Israeli Participant shall pay all applicable taxes imposed on such Breach by the Ordinance.
 
In the event of a distribution of rights, including an issuance of bonus shares, in connection with Options originally granted (the "Additional Rights"), all such Additional Rights shall be allocated and/or issued to the Trustee for the benefit of Israeli Participant, and shall be held by the Trustee for the remainder of the Holding Period applicable to the Options originally Awarded. Such Additional Rights shall be treated in accordance with the provisions of the applicable Tax Track.
 
 
6.3.
Income Tax Track Without a Trustee. If the Company elects to Award Options according to the provisions of this track, then the Options will not be subject to a Holding Period.

The Company shall cause the Trustee to exercise the Options by countersigning and delivering to the Company a notice of exercise, upon receipt of written instructions from the Participant thereof, provided, that the Israeli Participant has made appropriate arrangements for the payment of the Exercise Price of the Shares issuable upon such exercise.
 
 
6.6.
Tax Matters
 
 
6.6.1.
Awards to Israeli Participants shall be governed by, and shall conform with and be interpreted so as to comply with, the requirements of Section 102 of the Ordinance and any written approval from the Israeli Tax Authorities.

An Israeli Participant shall indemnify the Company and hold it harmless against and from any liability for any such tax or any penalty, interest or indexing.

6.6.2.
If the Company elects to Award Options according to the provisions of the Income Tax Track Without a Trustee (Section 6.3 of the Plan), and if prior to the exercise of any and/or all of these Options, an Israeli Participant ceases to be a director of the Company, such Israeli Participant shall deposit with the Company a guarantee or other security as required by law, in order to ensure the payment of applicable taxes upon the exercise of such Options.
 
 
6.6.3.
Until all taxes relating to Awards to Israeli Participants have been paid in accordance with the Ordinance, Options and/or the Shares underlying thereunder may not be sold, transferred, assigned, pledged, encumbered, or otherwise willfully hypothecated or disposed of, and no power of attorney or deed of transfer, whether for immediate or future use may be validly given. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Options and/or the Shares underlying thereunder may be validly transferred in a transfer made by will or laws of descent, provided that the transferee thereof shall be subject to the provisions of Section 102 of the Ordinance and the rules thereunder as would have been applicable to the deceased Israeli Participant were he or she to have survived.
