Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the meanings ascribed to them in the Partnership Agreement.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the covenants, conditions and agreements contained herein, the General Partner does hereby amend the Partnership Agreement as follows:
1. Amendments. The second sentence of Section 5.6(d) of the Partnership Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:
If a distribution, subdivision or combination of Units would result in the issuance of fractional Units but for the provisions of Section 5.4(d) and this Section 5.6(d), then, with respect to the fraction of one Unit that a Unitholder would otherwise be entitled, the General Partner may: (i) round such fractional Unit to the nearest Unit (with fractional Units equal to or greater than 0.5 Unit rounded to the next higher whole Unit), or (ii) make a cash payment for such fractional Unit (without interest and rounded up to the nearest whole cent) based on the Closing Price of
the Common Units on the Trading Day immediately prior to the effective date of such distribution, subdivision or combination.
2. Agreement in Effect. Except as hereby amended, the Partnership Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
