          surviving or resulting entity immediately after the consummation of
          such transaction are, or will be, owned by shareholders of such Member
          immediately before such reorganization (assuming for purposes of such
          determination that there is no change in the record ownership of the
          Member's securities from the record date for such approval until such
          transaction is consummated and that such record holders hold no

          the right to acquire beneficial ownership of, or any "group" (as such
          term is defined under the Exchange Act) shall have been formed which
          beneficially owns or has the right to 

          acquire beneficial ownership of, 20% or more of the then outstanding
          common stock of a Member; or

                    (5) The failure at any time, during any period of two
          consecutive years, of individuals who at the beginning of such period
          constituted the Board of Directors of a Member, for any reason, to
          constitute at least a majority thereof, unless the election, or the
          nomination for election by such Member's shareholders, of each new
          Board member was approved by a vote of at least three-fourths of the
          Board members then still in office who were Board members at the

          by agreement of the Members or, if the Members are unable to so agree,

          Event occurred, minus (ii) the product of the Aggregate Baseline
