We refer to the Deposit Agreement. Capitalized terms defined in the Deposit Agreement and not

We hereby agree that, without the prior consent of the Company, (i) we will not (a) Pre-Release
Receipts or (b) permit any Pre-Release to remain outstanding at any time, except pursuant to agreements,
covenants, representations or warranties substantively to the effect of Sections 3(a), 3(e), 4, 7(a) and 14 of the

same extent that the counterparty to a Pre-Release would be required by said Section 14 to indemnify the
Company) and (ii) we will undertake a Pre-Release only pursuant to written agreements that meet the
requirements of Section 1058(b) of the United States Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.

a material change in the U.S. federal income tax law (including judicial and administrative interpretations thereof)
regarding the treatment of Pre-Release, we agree to notify the Company promptly of such change and to advise
the Company as to the changes, if any, that we intend to make, or have made, to the Pre-Release procedures
then being followed by us as a result of such change in the tax law. W
