"As long as F.P. is a share- holder, it intends to act as a good shareholder should and do all that it can to assist in the affairs of the company and to assure the success of the enter- prise. It does not intend to act as a sort of second-class share- holder." The newly-purchased shares would also have to be sold in three years.
