Full text of Section 3.2

Section 3.2. Procedure for Exercise. Except when Automatic Exercise applies, Buyer must give irrevocable notice (which will be oral telephonic notice if practicable, and otherwise written notice) during the Exercise Period to Seller, or, if applicable, Seller’s Agent, of its exercise of an Option. In the case of an American Option, if the notice of exercise is given after the Latest Exercise Time on a Scheduled Trading Day, then that notice will be deemed given on the next following Scheduled Trading Day, if any, in the Exercise Period. In the case of an American Option or a Bermuda Option to which Multiple Exercise is applicable, Buyer must specify in the notice the number of Options being exercised on the relevant Exercise Date. Buyer will execute and deliver to Seller, or, if applicable, Seller’s Agent, a written confirmation confirming the substance of any telephonic notice within one Scheduled Trading Day of that notice. Without limiting the obligation of Buyer to provide such written confirmation, failure by Buyer to provide it will not affect the validity of the telephonic notice.
