        NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing, and the mutual covenants and agreements set forth herein, the parties hereto agree as follows:

Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon the occurrence of (i) a Sale Event, or (ii) a Termination without Cause, Termination for Good Reason or a Termination for Death or Disability (each as defined in the Employment Agreement dated as of August 20, 2004 and effective as of May 25, 2004 between PSI and Participant) prior to the expiration of the Restricted Period, the restrictions contained in the previous sentence shall no longer apply and, subject to applicable securities laws, the Participant may freely dispose of any interest in the Shares.

        6.2   Notwithstanding anything in Section 6.1 to the contrary, the Shares may be assigned in whole or in part during Participant's lifetime to one or more members of Participant's family or to a trust established exclusively for one or more such family members or to an entity in which Participant is majority owner, to the extent such assignment is in connection with Participant's estate or financial planning or pursuant to a Domestic Relations Order (as defined in the Plan); provided the assignees shall hold the Shares subject to the terms, conditions and restrictions applicable to the Shares immediately prior to such assignment. Any assignee shall be required to execute documentation satisfactory to PSI agreeing to be bound by all such terms, conditions and restrictions.

7.    Restrictive Legends.    

        The stock certificates evidencing the Shares issued under the Award shall bear appropriate legends determined by PSI.

8.    Award not a Service Contract.    

        The Award is not an employment or service contract, and nothing in the Award shall be deemed to create in any way whatsoever any obligation on PSI or an Affiliate to continue Participant's employment or service. In addition, nothing in the Award shall obligate PSI or an Affiliate, their respective stockholders, Boards of Directors, officers or employees to continue any relationship that Participant may have as an employee or Director of, or Consultant to, PSI or an Affiliate.

12.    Survival of Terms.    

        This Agreement shall apply to and bind Participant and PSI and their respective permitted assignees and transferees, heirs, legatees, executors, administrators and legal successors.

13.    Failure to Enforce not a Waiver.    

        The failure of PSI or Participant to enforce at any time any provision of this Agreement shall in no way be construed to be a waiver of such provision or of any other provision hereof.


14.    Amendments.    

        This Agreement may be amended or modified at any time only by an instrument in writing signed by each of the parties hereto.

15.    Authority of the Committee.    

        The Committee shall have full authority to interpret and construe the terms of this Agreement. The determination of the Committee as to any such matter of interpretation or construction shall be final, binding and conclusive.

16.    Miscellaneous.    

        16.1 The rights and obligations of PSI under the Award shall be transferable to any one or more persons or entities, and all covenants and agreements hereunder shall inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable by PSI's successors and assigns.

        16.2 Participant agrees upon request to execute any further documents or instruments necessary or desirable in the sole determination of PSI to carry out the purposes or intent of the Award.

        16.3 Participant acknowledges and agrees that he or she has reviewed the Award in its entirety, has had an opportunity to obtain the advice of counsel prior to executing and accepting such Award and fully understands all provisions of the Award.

17.    Governing Plan Document.    

        The Award is subject to all the provisions of the Plan, the provisions of which are hereby made a part of Participant's Award, and is further subject to all interpretations, amendments, rules and regulations which may from time to time be promulgated and adopted pursuant to the Plan. In the event of any conflict between the provisions of the Award and those of the Plan, the provisions of the Plan shall control.

        Participant represents that he or she has read this Agreement and is familiar with its terms and provisions. Participant hereby agrees to accept as binding, conclusive and final all decisions or interpretations of the Committee upon any questions arising under this Agreement.

18.    Compliance With Applicable Laws.    

        Participant will do all acts and things, execute, acknowledge and deliver all documents and instruments, and make all representations and warranties that are necessary or appropriate, in the judgment of PSI, for the grant, vesting, holding or transfer of the Shares to comply with applicable laws. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Participant hereby represents and warrants that:

        (a)   He is sufficiently aware of PSI's business affairs and financial condition to reach an informed and knowledgeable decision to acquire the Shares. He is acquiring the Shares for his own account for investment purposes only and not with a view to, or for the resale in connection with, any "distribution" thereof for purposes of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the rules promulgated thereunder (the "Securities Act").

        (b)   He further understands that the Shares must be held indefinitely unless subsequently registered under the Securities Act or unless an exemption from registration is otherwise available (such as Rule 144 under the Securities Act). In addition, he understands that the certificate evidencing the Shares will be imprinted with a legend which prohibits the transfer of the Shares unless they are registered or such registration is not required in the opinion of counsel for PSI.

        (c)   He understands that at the time he wishes to sell the Shares, there may be no public market upon which to make such a sale, and that, even if such a public market then exists, PSI may not be


satisfying the current public information requirements of Rule 144, and that, in such event, he would be precluded from selling the Shares under Rule 144 even if the minimum holding periods had been satisfied.

19.    Form S-8 Reoffer Prospectus.    

        Within 30 days following the later of (A) a Sale Event, Termination for Death or Disability, Termination without Cause or a Termination for Good Reason prior to May 25, 2005, and (B) the date following the occurrence of any of the events described in clause (A) of this Subsection (b)(iv) on which PSI first satisfies all of the requirements for the use of a registration statement on a Form S-8 (as set forth in the General Instructions to the Form S-8), including the use of a "reoffer prospectus" contemplated by General Instruction C of Form S-8 (the "S-8 Requirements"), PSI will file a registration statement on a Form S-8 including a reoffer prospectus with respect to the Restricted Shares and, to the extent PSI continues through May 25, 2005 to satisfy the S-8 Requirements, will maintain the effectiveness of such registration statement and reoffer prospectus until May 25, 2005. Notwithstanding anything in this Subsection (b)(iv) to the contrary, if the Board determines, in good faith, that because of the existence of material non-public information about PSI it would be disadvantageous to PSI to file registration statement on a Form S-8, PSI shall be entitled to delay the filing of such registration statement until the Board determines, in good faith, that the filing of the registration statement would no longer be disadvantageous to PSI.

20.    Community Property.    

        Without prejudice to the actual rights of the spouses as between each other, for all purposes of this Agreement, the Participant shall be treated as agent and attorney-in-fact for that interest held or claimed by his or her spouse with respect to any Shares and the parties hereto shall act in all matters as if the Participant was the sole owner of such Shares. This appointment is coupled with an interest and is irrevocable.

21.    Governing Law.    

        This Agreement will be governed by the internal laws of the State of Delaware without reference to its conflicts of law provisions.

22.    Venue; Service of Process.    

        Any legal action, arbitration or other legal proceeding relating to this Agreement or the enforcement of any provision of this Agreement may be brought or otherwise commenced in any state or federal court located in the County of San Diego, California. Each party to this Agreement: (i) expressly and irrevocably consents and submits to the jurisdiction of each state and federal court located in the County of San Diego, California (and each appellate court located in the State of California) in connection with any such legal proceeding or arbitration; (ii) agrees that each state and federal court located in the County of San Diego, California shall be deemed to be a convenient forum; and (iii) agrees not to assert (by way of motion, as a defense or otherwise), in any such legal proceeding or arbitration commenced in any state of federal court located in the County of San Diego, California, any claim that such party is not subject personally to the jurisdiction of such court, that such legal proceeding or arbitration has been brought in an inconvenient forum, that the venue of such proceeding is improper or that this Agreement or the subject matter of this Agreement may not be enforced in or by such court. Process in any action or proceeding referred to in this section may be served on any party anywhere in the world.
