Company/Partnership to such party so entitled.

        Any and all monetary amounts which are withheld by the Company/Partnership shall be
held for the benefit of the party for which the monetary amount is payable to. However, any
monetary amount that is held for the benefit of any party shall be subject to any and all statutory
deductions and withholdings that may be payable to the governmental authority of the governing

bearing accounts with any bank, trust company or other financial institution as the
Company/Partnership in its sole discretion deems appropriate. The Company/Partnership shall
not at any time be held liable or responsible for any loss of any moneys deposited into any
interest bearing account. The Company/Partnership shall have the option to make elections in
respect of the monetary amounts being withheld as may be allowed by the governmental
authority of the governing jurisdiction.
