thereupon deliver the Excess Securities to (i) one or more organizations qualifying under Section 501(c)(3) of the Code (or any comparable successor provision) (“Section 501(c)(3)”) as determined in the Company’s sole discretion and/or (ii) escheat such property to the state of residence or incorporation or formation, as applicable, of the Purported Transferee for the benefit of such state.

(iv) In the case of a Prohibited Transfer described in Section 13.3(a)(B), the purported transferor of Excess Securities in such Prohibited Transfer (the “Purported Transferor”) shall deliver to the Agent the sale proceeds from the Prohibited Transfer (in the form received, i.e., whether in cash or other property), and the Agent shall thereupon identify and sell any non-cash consideration to a buyer or buyers in one or more arm’s-length transactions (including over a national securities exchange, if possible). If the identity of the Purported Transferee is determined (by the Corporation), the Agent shall, to the extent possible, return to the Purported Transferor any certificate or evidence of ownership of Excess Securities together with any Prohibited Distributions received by the Agent pursuant to this Section 13.5(b), and shall reimburse the Purported Transferee up to an amount paid by such Purported Transferee for the Excess Securities in the Prohibited Transfer, such reimbursement to be made from (and limited to) the sale proceeds received by the Agent from the Purported Transferor (and the net proceeds realized by the Agent from the disposition of any non-cash consideration). If the identity of the Purported Transferee is not determined, or to the extent the Excess Securities have been resold and thus cannot be returned to the Purported Transferor, the Agent shall use the proceeds received by the Agent from the Purported Transferor (and the net proceeds realized by the Agent from the disposition of any non-cash consideration) to acquire on behalf of the Purported Transferor, in one or more arm’s-length transactions (including over a national securities exchange on which the Corporation Securities may be traded, if possible), an equal amount of Corporation Securities in replacement of the Excess Securities sold; provided, however, that to the extent the amount of proceeds is not sufficient to fund the purchase price of such Corporation Securities and the Agent’s costs and expenses (as described in Section 13.5(c)), the Purported Transferor shall promptly fund such deficiency upon demand by the Agent.

(iv) In the case of a Prohibited Transfer that is described in both Sections 13.3(a)(A) and 13.3(a)(B), the procedures set forth in Section 13.5(b)(ii) shall apply.

(c) Except for Prohibited Distributions that are to be returned to the Purported Transferor in accordance with Section 13.5(b)(ii), the Agent shall apply any proceeds or any other amounts received by it by and in accordance with Section 13.5 as follows:

(i) first, such amounts shall be paid to the Agent to the extent necessary to cover its costs and expenses incurred in connection with its duties hereunder;

(ii) second, any remaining amounts shall be paid to the Purported Transferee, up to the amount paid by the Purported Transferee for the Excess Securities (or the fair market value at the time of the Prohibited Transfer, in the event the purported Transfer of the Excess Securities was, in whole or in part, a gift, inheritance or similar Transfer); and

(iii) third, any remaining amounts, subject to the limitations imposed by the following proviso, shall be paid to one or more organizations qualifying under Section 501(c)(3) selected by the Board; provided, however, that if the Excess Securities (including any Excess Securities arising from a previous Prohibited Transfer not sold by the Agent in a prior sale or sales) represent a 4.9% or greater Percentage Stock Ownership interest in the Corporation, then such remaining amounts shall be paid to two or more unrelated organizations qualifying under Section 501(c)(3) selected by the Board, such that no organization qualifying under Section 501(c)(3) shall possess Percentage Stock Ownership in the Corporation of 4.9% or more.

(iv) The recourse of any Purported Transferee in respect of any Prohibited Transfer shall be limited to the amount payable to the Purported Transferee pursuant to clause (ii) above. Except to the extent used to cover costs and expenses incurred by the Agent in performing its duties hereunder, in no event shall the proceeds of any sale of Excess Securities pursuant to this Section 13.5 inure to the benefit of the Corporation.
