6.2 Income in the form of Securities: Where Income, in the form of Securities, is paid in relation to any Loaned Securities, such Securities shall be added to such Loaned Securities (and shall constitute Loaned Securities and be part of the relevant Loan) and will not be delivered to Lender until the end of the relevant Loan, provided that Lender fulfils its obligations under paragraph 5.3 with respect to the additional Loaned Securities.
6.3 Exercise of voting rights: Where any voting rights fall to be exercised in relation to any Loaned Securities, Borrower shall have no obligation to arrange for voting rights of that kind to be exercised in accordance with the instructions of Lender in relation to the Securities borrowed by it, unless otherwise agreed between the Parties.
