(ii) if the Grantee’s Qualified Termination, death or Disability occurs before the first anniversary of the Effective Date, the number of Award  LTIP Units (PB) resulting from the calculations provided in Section 4 hereof shall be multiplied by the Partial Service Factor (with the resulting number being rounded to the nearest whole LTIP Unit or, in the case of 0.5 of a unit, up to the next whole unit), and such adjusted number of Award  LTIP Units (PB) shall become vested; and
(iii) if the Grantee’s Qualified Termination, death, Disability or Retirement occurs after the first anniversary of the Effective Date, then there will be no reduction in the number of Award  LTIP Units (PB) resulting from the calculations provided in Section 4 hereof.
(d) For the avoidance of doubt, if the Grantee becomes engaged in Competitive Activities following the effective date of Retirement and before the end of the Performance Period, then the provisions of Section 5(b) or 5(c) will not apply, and the provisions of Section 5(f) will apply.
(e) If the Grantee’s employment with the Company or a Subsidiary or affiliate terminates as a result of retirement under circumstances other than as described in Section 5(c) above, the Committee may, on a case-by-case basis and in its sole discretion, provide for accelerated or continued vesting of some or all of the Grantee’s unvested Award  LTIP Units (PB) that have not previously been forfeited effective prior to the effective date of retirement.
