(d) Required Taxes. No later than the date as of which an amount first becomes includible in the gross income of a Participant for federal, state, local or foreign income or employment or other tax purposes with respect to any Award under this Plan, such Participant shall pay to the Company, or make arrangements satisfactory to the Company regarding the payment of, any federal, state, local or foreign taxes of any kind required by law to be withheld with respect to such amount. If determined by the Company, withholding obligations may be settled with Shares, including Shares that are part of the Award that gives rise to the withholding requirement. The obligations of the Company under this Plan shall be conditional on such payment or arrangements, and the Company and its Affiliates shall, to the extent permitted by law, have the right to deduct any such taxes from any payment otherwise due to such Participant. The Committee may establish such procedures as it deems appropriate, including making irrevocable elections, for the settlement of withholding obligations with Shares.
(e) Limitation on Dividend Reinvestment and Dividend Equivalents. The payment of Shares with respect to dividends to Participants holding Awards of Restricted Share Units shall only be permissible if sufficient Shares are available under Section 3 for such reinvestment or payment (taking into account then outstanding Awards). In the event that a sufficient number of Shares is not available for such reinvestment or payment, such reinvestment or payment shall be made in the form of a grant of additional Restricted Share Units equal in number to the Shares that would have been obtained by such payment or reinvestment, the terms of which Restricted Share Units shall provide for settlement in cash and for dividend equivalent reinvestment in further Restricted Share Units on the terms contemplated by this Section 11(e).
(f) Designation of Death Beneficiary. The Committee shall establish such procedures as it deems appropriate for a Participant to designate a beneficiary to whom any amounts payable or Shares deliverable in the event of such Participant’s death are to be paid or delivered or by whom any rights of such Participant, after such Participant’s death, may be exercised.
(g) Subsidiary Employees. Subject to applicable law, in the case of a grant of an Award to any employee or officer of a Subsidiary, the Company may, if the Committee so directs, transfer the Shares, if any, covered by the Award to the Subsidiary, for such lawful consideration as the Committee may specify, upon the condition or understanding that the Subsidiary will transfer the Shares to the employee or officer in accordance with the terms of the Award specified by the Committee pursuant to the provisions of this Plan. All such Shares underlying Awards that are forfeited or cancelled shall revert to the Company.

This Plan and all Awards made and actions taken thereunder shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Netherlands, without reference to principles of conflict of laws.
