In addition to the foregoing, Mr. Stoltz shall be eligible to receive an annual long-term grant valued at $150,000 and comprised of 2/3 of such value (as determined based on the Black-Scholes model) being in the form of options to purchase the Company’s common stock and 1/3 of such value being in the form of the Company’s restricted stock.  If the Company terminates Mr. Stoltz’s employment without cause, he will be entitled to receive a severance payment of twelve months of his base salary.
