SCGG has granted Mr. Sossen an interest in 30,000 of the Manager RSUs (the "Sossen RSUs"), consisting of the right to receive from the Manager (i) the dividend equivalents paid by the issuer with respect to RSUs, and (ii) the Stock underlying the Sossen RSUs, in each case when the Sossen RSUs vest as to Mr. Sossen, which vesting is subject to (1) the prior or concurrent vesting of the related Manager RSUs to the Manager (and the corresponding issuance and delivery by the issuer to the Manager of the underlying Stock), and (2) Mr. Sossen's employment with SCGG as of the applicable vesting date.
