Finally, for a period of 30 days beginning on the date hereof, Okumus and its affiliates may not, directly or indirectly offer, sell, contract to sell, pledge, grant any option to purchase, make any short sale or otherwise dispose of in any manner any of its security holdings in the Company at a price lower than the price per share paid by the Company pursuant to the Agreement.
