(a)
The exercise price of the Shares covered by each Option (the "Exercise Price") shall be as determined by the Committee; provided, however, that the Exercise Price of any Option Granted, shall not be less than eighty percent (80%) of the Stock Value at the time of issuance of such Options.  The "Stock Value" at any time shall be equal to the then current Fair Market Value of the Shares.  For purposes hereof, the "Fair Market Value" shall mean, as of any date, the last closing price, on Date of Grant, of the Shares in respect of which options Granted under the Plan may then be exercised on the NASDAQ National Market System (or, in the event that the National Market System is not the principal securities exchange on which the Shares are then traded, on such other principal securities exchange), or, in the event that no sales of the Shares took place on such date, the last closing price of the Shares on such principal securities exchange on the most recent prior date on which a sale of the Shares took place; provided, however, that if the Shares are not publicly traded on the date on which the Fair Market Value is to be determined, then the "Fair Market Value" shall mean the per share Fair Market Value of the Company as determined by the Board of Directors.  If the Committee is unable to agree on the Fair Market Value, then the Fair Market Value shall be determined by an independent valuation expert satisfactory to the Committee.  The Fair Market Value as determined by such independent valuation expert shall be conclusive.  The Exercise Price of an Option shall be subject to adjustment to the extent provided in paragraph 3(b) above.
 
 
(b)
Options Granted to Employees subject to US Tax: at an Exercise Price which is not less than the "fair market value" (as described in Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (the "Code")) of the Shares on the grant date (110% of such fair market value in the case of an individual who owns more than 10% of the combined voting power of all classes of stock in the Company or an Affiliate (a "10% Stockholder")).
 
6.
Grant of Options: Dividends and Voting Rights
 
 
(a)
The effective date of the Grant of an Option (the "Date of Grant") shall be the date specified by the Committee in its determination relating to the award of such Option.  The Committee shall promptly give the Participant written notice (the "Notice of Grant") of the Grant of an Option. The terms of such Notice of Grant shall be determined by the Committee, subject to the terms of the Plan.
 
 
(b)
Subject to the vesting provisions of paragraph 9(c), each Option may be exercised, in whole or in part, at any time during the period (the "Option Period") set forth in the Notice of Grant. However, Underlying Shares derived from Options Granted under one of the Section 102 Trustee Tracks, may not be sold or transferred from the Trustee (as hereinafter defined) before the end of the applicable Holding Period as defined in Section 102 and paragraph 7 of this Plan. Options not exercised during the Option Period shall terminate upon the expiration thereof.
 
 
(c)
To the extent that any dividend is payable on the Shares under applicable law, or the Articles of Association of the Company, all Underlying Shares (whether or not held in Trust) shall entitle beneficial Participants ("Beneficial Employees") to receive dividends with respect thereto.  For so long as such Shares are held in Trust, any and all dividends received by the Trustee on such Underlying Shares shall be paid by the Trustee to the Beneficial Employees thereof, subject to any required withholding of tax in respect thereof.
 
 
(e)
Except as provided in the immediately following sentence, in order to exercise an Option, the Participant shall complete and execute a notice of exercise ("Notice of Exercise") in such form as may be prescribed by the Committee from time to time and shall deliver the same to the Company together with the purchase price of the Shares pursuant to paragraph 13 hereof. In the case of any Beneficial Employee who's Options are held by the Trustee, such Beneficial Employee shall instruct the Trustee to countersign such Notice of Exercise (the same having been signed by such Beneficial Employee) and to deliver the same to the Company.
 
 
(f)
The Participant shall have no rights as a shareholder with respect to Shares under a Grant of Options until a share certificate has been delivered to the Participant and is fully paid for.  No adjustment shall be made for dividends or other rights for which the record date is prior to the date such share certificate is issued

Trust Arrangement and Holding Period
 
 
(a)
Option Subject to Section 102: Grants to Israeli Employees shall be made under the provisions of Section 102. Grants to Non-Israeli Employees or Controlling Employees shall not be made under Section 102. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the Date of Grant of Options to Israeli Employees, who are not Controlling Employees, and elected to have their Options issued under the Trustee Track of Section 102 that the Company has selected, shall not be earlier than the date at which the Option Plan was approved by the Israeli Tax Authorities.
 
 
(b)
Trustee Tax Tracks: If the Company elects to Grant Options through (i) the Capital Gains Track Through a Trustee, or (ii) the Income Tax Track Through a Trustee then, in accordance with the requirements of Section 102, the Company shall appoint a Trustee who will hold in trust on behalf of each Participant the Options and the Underlying Shares issued upon exercise of such Options in trust on behalf of each Participant. The Company shall allocate such Options to the Trustee on behalf of such Israeli Employees in a letter specifying all details required under Section 102 Rules ("Allocation").
 
The holding period for the Options will be as follows ("Holding Period"):
 
 
(1)
The Capital Gains Tax Track Through a Trustee – if the Company elects to Allocate the Options according to the provisions of this track, then the Holding Period will be 24 months from the end of the tax year in which the Options were Allocated to the Trustee on behalf of the 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 Allocate Options according to the provisions of this track, then the Holding Period will be 12 months from the end of the tax year in which the Options were Allocated to the Trustee on behalf of the Participant, or such shorter period as may be approved by the Israeli Tax Authorities.
 
Subject to Section 102, Israeli Employees shall not be able to receive from the Trustee, nor shall they be able to sell or dispose of Underlying Shares before the end of the applicable Holding Period.
 
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 Employees, and shall be held by the Trustee for the remainder of the Holding Period applicable to the Options originally Allocated. Such Additional Rights shall be treated in accordance with the provisions of the applicable Tax Track.
 
 
(c)
Income Tax Track Without a Trustee: If the Company elects to Allocate Options according to the provisions of this track, then the Options will not be subject to a Holding Period.
 
 
(d)
Track Selection: The Company, in its sole discretion, shall elect under which (and if to Allocate Options under one) of the above three Tracks, Allocations to Israeli Employees shall be made.
 
 
(e)
Concurrent Conditions: The Holding Period, if any, is in addition to the vesting period as specified in paragraph 9 (c) of the Plan.  The Holding Period and vesting period may run concurrently, but neither is a substitute for the other, and each are independent terms and conditions for Options Granted.
 
 
(f)
Trust Agreement:
 
 
(i)
The terms and conditions applicable to the Trust relating to the Trustee Tax Track selected by the Company, as appropriate, shall be set forth in an agreement signed by the Company and the Trustee (the "Trust Agreement").
 
 
(ii)
The Company shall cause the Trustee (subject to the vesting provisions of paragraph 9(c) hereof) to exercise the Options by countersigning and delivering to the Company a Notice of Exercise, upon receipt of written instructions from the Beneficial Employee thereof, provided the Beneficial Employee has made appropriate arrangements for the payment of the Exercise Price of the Shares issuable upon such exercise.

(iii)
Subject to paragraph 9(a) of this Plan, Options and/or Underlying Shares held by the Trustee shall continue to be held by the Trustee, on behalf of the Beneficial Employee at least until the end of the later of the (a) applicable Holding Period and (b) Vesting Period  ("Release Date"). At any time after the Release Date and upon the receipt of a written request of any Beneficial Employee, the Trustee shall release from the Trust the Underlying Shares, by executing and delivering to the Company such instrument(s) as the Company may require, giving due notice of such release to such Beneficial Employee, provided, however, that the Trustee shall not so release any such Shares to such Beneficial Employee unless the latter, prior to, or concurrently with, such release, provides the Trustee with evidence, satisfactory in form and substance to the Trustee, that all taxes, if any, required to be paid upon such release have, in fact, been paid.
 
 
(iv)
Alternatively, from and after the Release Date, upon the written instructions of the Beneficial Employee to sell any Shares issued upon exercise of Options, the Trustee shall take such steps as may be required to effect such sale and shall transfer such Shares to the purchaser concurrently with the receipt, or after having made suitable arrangements to secure the payment of the proceeds of the purchase price in such transaction.  The Trustee shall withhold from such proceeds any and all taxes required to be paid in respect of such sale, shall remit the amount so withheld to the appropriate tax authorities and shall pay the balance thereof directly to the Beneficial Employee, reporting to such Beneficial Employee and to the Company the amount so withheld and paid to said tax authorities.
 
 
(g)
Option Subject to the Trustee Tax Track without a Trustee: If the Company determines to Allocate Options subject to a Trustee Tax Track without a Trustee, the Company shall Allocate all Options Granted under the Plan to Israeli Employees (and a copy of the Notice of Grant shall be given) to a trustee designated by the Board (who may be the Trustee). The Trustee shall hold each such Option in trust (the "Trust") for the Beneficial Employee. No Options shall be released from the Trust until the vesting of such Option pursuant to paragraph 9(c) hereof (the "Vesting Date"). From and after the Vesting Date, upon the written request of any Beneficial Employee, the Trustee shall release from the Trust the Options Allocated and exercise them on behalf of such Beneficial Employee, by executing and delivering to the Company such instrument(s) as the Company may require, giving due notice of such release to such Beneficial Employee, provided, however, that the Trustee shall not so release and exercise any such Options on behalf of the Beneficial Employee unless the latter, prior to, or concurrently with, such release and exercise, provides the Trustee with evidence, satisfactory in form and substance to the Trustee, that all taxes and/or compulsory payments, if any, required to be paid upon such release and exercise have, in fact, been paid.
 
If prior to the exercise of any and/or all of the Options Allocated under this Tax Track, such Israeli Employee ceases to be an employee, director, or Officer of the Company or Affiliate, the Israeli Employee shall deposit with the Company or Affiliate a guarantee or other security as required by law, in order to ensure the payment of applicable taxes upon the exercise of such Options.

All Options Granted under the Plan to Controlling Employees shall be Granted (and a copy of the Notice of Grant shall be given) under Section 3(i) to the Income Tax Ordinance. The Company shall Allocate the Options to a trustee designated by the Board (who may be the Trustee). The Trustee shall hold each such Option in trust (the "Trust") for the Beneficial Controlling Employee. No Options shall be released from the Trust until the vesting of such Option pursuant to paragraph 9(c) hereof (the "Release Date"). From and after the Release Date, upon the written request of any Beneficial Controlling Employee, the Trustee shall release from the Trust the Allocated Options and exercise them on behalf of such Beneficial Employee, by executing and delivering to the Company such instrument(s) as the Company may require, giving due notice of such release to such Beneficial Controlling Employee, provided, however, that the Trustee shall not so release and exercise any such Options on behalf of the Beneficial Controlling Employee unless the latter, prior to, or concurrently with, such release and exercise, provides the Trustee with evidence, satisfactory in form and substance to the Trustee, that all taxes and/or compulsory payments, if any, required to be paid upon such release and exercise have, in fact, been paid.

No Options shall be released from the Trust until the vesting of such Option pursuant to Section 10 hereof (the "Release Date"). From and after the Release Date, upon the written request of any Non Israeli Employee, the Trustee shall release from the Trust the Allocated Options and exercise them on behalf of such Non Israeli Employee, by executing and delivering to the Company such instrument(s) as the Company may require, giving due notice of such release to such Non Israeli Employee, provided, however, that the Trustee shall not so release and exercise any such Options on behalf of the Non Israeli Employee unless the latter, prior to, or concurrently with, such release and exercise, provides the Trustee with evidence, satisfactory in form and substance to the Trustee, that all taxes and/or compulsory payments, if any, required to be paid upon such release and exercise have, in fact, been paid.
 
 
(b)
The Options Granted subject to this Plan to Employees subject to payment in the US of tax on their income from the Company or an Affiliate are intended to be "incentive stock option" as described in Section 422 of the Code ("ISOs").  To the extent some or all of the Options subject to a certain Grant exceed the $100,000 rule of Code Section 422(d), the certain Option Grant or the lesser excess part will be treated as a nonqualified stock option under the United States tax law. Notwithstanding any inconsistent or contrary provision of this Plan, if an Option Grant has not expired on the relevant date as provided for in section 10 below, the Options shall cease to be treated as ISOs 91 days after the Participant ceases to be a common law employee of the Company or an Affiliate corporation as defined in Code Sections 424(e) and 424(f)) (a "Common Law Employee"), unless the Participant ceases to be a Common Law Employee by reason of death or disability (as defined in code Section 22(e)(3)), in which case the term "1 year and 1 day" shall replace the term "91 days" in this clause above.
