     SECTION 4.4 Distribution of Rights to Purchase Shares.

     (a)  Distribution to ADS Holders. Whenever the Company intends to
distribute to the holders of the Deposited Securities rights to subscribe for
additional Shares, the Company shall give notice thereof to the Depositary at
least 45 days prior to the proposed distribution stating whether or not it
wishes such rights to be made available to Holders of ADSs. Upon receipt of a
notice indicating that the Company wishes such rights to be made available to
Holders of ADSs, the Depositary shall consult with the Company to determine, and
the Company shall determine, whether it is lawful and reasonably practicable to
make such rights available to the Holders. The Depositary shall make such rights
available to Holders only if (i) the Company shall have timely requested that
such rights be made available to Holders, (ii) the Depositary shall have
received satisfactory documentation within the terms of Section 5.7, and (iii)
the Depositary shall have determined that such distribution of rights is lawful
and reasonably practicable. In the event any of the conditions set forth above
are not satisfied, the Depositary shall proceed with the sale of the rights as
contemplated in Section 4.4(b) below or, if timing or market conditions may not
permit, do nothing thereby allowing such rights to lapse. In the event all
conditions set forth above are satisfied, the Depositary shall establish an ADS
Record Date (upon the terms described in Section 4.7) and establish procedures
(x) to distribute such rights (by means of warrants or otherwise) and (y) to
enable the Holders to exercise the rights (upon payment of applicable (a) fees
and charges of, and expenses incurred by, the Depositary and (b) taxes and other
governmental charges). Nothing herein shall obligate the Depositary to make
available to the Holders a method to exercise such rights to subscribe for
Shares (rather than ADSs).

     (b)  Sale of Rights. If (i) the Company does not timely request the
Depositary to make the rights available to Holders or requests that the rights
not be made available to Holders, (ii) the Depositary fails to receive
satisfactory documentation within the terms of Section 5.7 or determines it is
not lawful or reasonably practicable to make the rights available to Holders, or
(iii) any rights made available are not exercised and appear to be about to
lapse, the Depositary shall determine whether it is lawful and reasonably
practicable to sell such rights, in a riskless principal capacity or otherwise,
at such place and upon such terms (including public or private sale) as it may
deem proper. The Company shall assist the Depositary to the extent necessary to
determine such legality and practicability. The Depositary shall, upon such
sale, convert and distribute proceeds of such sale (net of applicable (a) fees
and charges of, and expenses incurred by, the Depositary and (b) taxes) upon the
terms set forth in Section 4.1.

     (c)  Lapse of Rights. If the Depositary is unable to make any rights
available to Holders upon the terms described in Section 4.4(a) or to arrange
for the sale of the rights upon the terms described in Section 4.4(b), the
Depositary shall allow such rights to lapse.

     The Depositary shall not be responsible for (i) any failure to determine
that it may be lawful or practicable to make such rights available to Holders in
general or any Holders in particular, (ii) any foreign exchange exposure or loss
incurred in connection with such sale, or exercise, or (iii) the content of any
materials forwarded to the Holders on behalf of the Company in connection with
the rights distribution.

     Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 4.4, if
registration (under the Securities Act or any other applicable law) of the
rights or the securities to which any rights relate may be required in order for
the Company to offer such rights or such securities to Holders and to sell the
securities represented by such rights, the Depositary will not distribute such
rights
