Cause. The Company may terminate the Executive's employment for "Cause." A termination for Cause is a termination evidenced by a resolution adopted in good faith by a majority of the Board that the Executive (i) willfully, deliberately and continually failed to substantially perform his duties under Section 3, above (other than a failure resulting from the Executive's incapacity due to physical or mental illness) which failure constitutes gross misconduct, and results in and was intended to result in demonstrable material injury to the Company, monetary or otherwise, or (ii) committed acts of fraud and dishonesty constituting a felony, as determined by a final judgment or order of a court of competent jurisdiction, and resulting or intended to result in gain to or personal enrichment of the Executive at the Company's expense, provided, however, that no termination of the Executive's employment shall be for Cause as set forth in (i), above, until (a) Executive shall have had at least sixty (60) days to cure any conduct or act alleged to provide Cause for termination after a written notice of demand has been delivered to the Executive specifying in detail the manner in which the Executive's conduct violates this Agreement, and (b) the Executive shall have been provided an opportunity to be heard by the Board (with the assistance of the Executive's counsel if the Executive so desires).

Cause. The term "Cause" used in connection with the termination of employment of the Executive shall have the same meaning ascribed to such term in any employment or severance agreement then in effect between Executive and the Company or one of its subsidiaries or, if no such agreement containing a definition of "Cause" is then in effect, shall mean (i) the continued failure of the Executive to perform substantially the Executive's duties with the Company or one of its subsidiaries (other than any such failure resulting from incapacity due to physical or mental illness), after a written demand for substantial performance is delivered to the Executive by the Company which specifically identifies the manner in which the Company believes that the Executive has not substantially performed the Executive's duties; (ii) the willful engaging by the Executive in illegal conduct or gross misconduct which is materially and demonstrably injurious to the Company or one of its subsidiaries; or (iii) conviction of a felony or guilty or nolo contendere plea by the Executive with respect thereto.

Any act, or failure to act, based upon authority given pursuant to a resolution duly adopted by the Board of Directors of the Company or upon the instructions of the Chief Executive Officer of the Company (while the Executive does not serve as such) or based upon the advice of counsel for the Company shall be conclusively presumed to be done, or omitted to be done, by the Executive in good faith and in the best interests of the Company and its subsidiaries.
