all unvested Restricted Units are subject to forfeiture in the event of the termination of Mr. Redling’s employment (whether voluntary or involuntary and regardless of the reason for the termination, or for no reason whatsoever) with StoneMor GP or its affiliates, unless Mr. Redling’s employment is on that date transferred to StoneMor GP or another of its affiliates; and

all Restricted Units and related distributions with respect thereto are subject to clawback under any clawback policies which are adopted by the Compensation Committee, as amended from time to time, including, but not limited to, clawback listing requirements of the New York Stock Exchange imposed by Securities and Exchange Commission rules adopted to Section 954 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010.
