                                         “Series A Redemption Option”) for any one of the following
                                         events (“Redemption Triggering Events”):
                                         a) a Qualified IPO has not been completed by the end           of 36th
                                            month from the Closing of the Investment;
                                         b) NDA Director (as defined below) votes in favor              of the
                                            Holdco’s pursuing an IPO and such IPO is rejected           by the
                                            directors appointed by the Existing Shareholders at         a duly
                                            convened meeting of the Board of Directors.
                                         The redemption price, payable in US Dollars, shall be equal to,
                                         such price that provides the holders of the Series A Preferred
                                         with an internal rate of return of 15% (based on the Investment
                                         Amount and the date of the Closing of the Investment). All
                                         calculations shall be made in US Dollars. (“Redemption Price”)
                                         If the holders of the Series A Preferred elect to exercise the
                                         Redemption Option, the Existing Shareholders will take all
                                         actions within their power to cause WANGYONG to declare
                                         dividends at least equivalent to the higher of: (i) accumulated
                                         IAS audited net income of WANGYONG; and (ii) the maximum
                                         allowable dividends according to then prevailing law or
                                         regulations. All dividends paid by WANGYONG to Holdco
                                         shall be paid to the Series A Preferred until the Redemption
                                         Price has been paid in full. If such payments cannot fully satisfy
                                         the Redemption Price in the year of exercise, the Existing
                                         Shareholders will continue to take all actions within their power
                                         to cause WANGYONG to pay the higher of (i) 70% of all future
                                         net income as dividends and (ii) the maximum allowable
                                         dividends according to prevailing law or regulations. All
                                         dividends paid by WANGYONG to Holdco shall be paid to
                                         holders of Series A Preferred until the Redemption Price has
                                         been paid in full.
                                         The exact mechanics of the redemption shall be defined in the
                                         final documentation.
