5.                                           Transfer Restrictions.  The Performance Units granted hereby may not be sold, assigned, pledged, exchanged, hypothecated or otherwise transferred, encumbered or disposed of (other than by will or the applicable laws of descent and distribution).  Any such attempted sale, assignment, pledge, exchange, hypothecation, transfer, encumbrance or disposition in violation of this Agreement shall be void and the Company shall not be bound thereby.  Further, any shares of Common Stock issued to the Executive in exchange for Performance Units awarded hereby may not be sold or otherwise disposed of in any manner that would constitute a violation of any applicable securities laws.  The Executive also agrees that the Company may (a) refuse to cause the transfer of any such shares of Common Stock to be registered on the applicable stock transfer records of the Company if such proposed transfer would, in the opinion of counsel satisfactory to the Company, constitute a violation of any applicable securities law and (b) give related instructions to the transfer agent, if any, to stop registration of the transfer of such shares of Common Stock.  The shares of Common Stock that may be issued under the Plan are registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission under a Registration Statement on Form S-8.  A Prospectus describing the Plan and the shares of Common Stock is available from the Company.

 

6.                                           Vesting and Payment.

 

(a)                                 The Performance Units that are granted hereby shall be subject to the Forfeiture Restrictions.  The Executive shall have no vested interest in the Performance Units credited to his or her bookkeeping ledger account except as set forth in this Section 6.  Upon the lapse of the Forfeiture Restrictions applicable to a Performance Unit that is awarded hereby or such later date provided in Section 6(d) or (f), the Company shall issue to the Executive that number of shares of Common Stock calculated pursuant to Section 6(b) through (i) below, as applicable, in exchange for such Performance Unit and pay the Dividend Equivalents, with respect to that number of shares of Common Stock issued, as provided in Section 4(a), and thereafter the Executive shall have no further rights with respect to such Performance Unit.

 

(b)                                 If the Executive’s employment with the Company and its subsidiaries has not terminated prior to April 13, 20    , then on such date the Forfeiture Restrictions on the Performance Units shall lapse and the Executive shall be entitled to receive that number of shares of Common Stock equal to the Adjusted Number of Target Shares multiplied by the applicable Percentage Target Earned Factor (each as further described below):

 

4



 

(i)                                     The “Adjusted Number of Target Shares” shall be calculated as follows: (A) if Adjusted EPS is less than $          , the Target Shares shall be multiplied by 0%, (B) if Adjusted EPS is $          , the Target Shares shall be multiplied by 50%, (C) if Adjusted EPS is $          , the Target Shares shall be multiplied by 100%, (D) if Adjusted EPS is $           or more, the Target Shares shall be multiplied by 150%, and (E) if Adjusted EPS is between $           and $           the Target Shares shall be multiplied by a percentage pro-rated based upon the foregoing range as indicated on Exhibit A.  In no event will the Target Shares be multiplied by a percentage that exceeds 150%.

 

(ii)                                  The applicable “Percentage Target Earned Factor” shall be determined as follows: (A) if Relative TSR is at or below the            percentile (counting up from the lowest percentile), then the Percentage Target Earned Factor shall be 50%, (B) if Relative TSR is at the            percentile, then the Percentage Target Earned Factor shall be 100%, (C) if Relative TSR is at or above the            percentile, then the Percentage Target Earned Factor shall be 150%, and (D) if Relative TSR is between the            percentile and the            percentile, then the Percentage Target Earned Factor shall be a percentage pro-rated based upon the foregoing range as indicated on Exhibit B; provided, however, notwithstanding the above, that in the event that Relative TSR exceeds the            percentile but the Company’s total shareholder return for the Reference Period (calculated as set forth in the definition of Relative TSR) is less than zero the Percentage Target Earned Factor shall be only 100%.

 

If Adjusted EPS is below $          , then the Forfeiture Restrictions on the Performance Units covered hereby shall not lapse and the Performance Units awarded hereby shall be forfeited as of the close of business on April 13, 20      .  The Committee shall make such adjustments to the definition of Adjusted Number of Target Shares as the Committee deems appropriate to reflect changes in the Common Stock made by the Company after the Grant Date.

 

(c)                                  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if the Executive remains employed by the Company or a subsidiary until April 13, 20    , and, during the term of the Change in Control Agreement, a Change in Control occurs (i) on or before                     , 20     [the next to last day of the fiscal year], then the Performance Units awarded hereby shall no longer be subject to the adjustments set forth in Section 6(b) above, and on April 13, 20    , the Forfeiture Restrictions on the Performance Units shall lapse and the Executive shall be entitled to receive a number of shares equal to the Target Shares or (ii) on or after                     , 20     [the last day of the fiscal year], then on April 13, 20    , the Forfeiture Restrictions on the Performance Units shall lapse and the Executive shall be entitled to receive a number of shares of Common Stock calculated in accordance Section 6(b) of this Agreement (and the Company will undertake to require the acquirer to preserve and maintain the Company’s business and accounting in all manner necessary so that all factors needed to prepare the calculations in Section 6(b) will then be available).

 

(d)                                 Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if the Executive’s employment with the Company and its subsidiaries terminates before April 13, 20    , and during the term of the Change in Control Agreement, and on or before                     , 20     [the next to last day of the fiscal year], a Change in Control occurs and on or thereafter such date the Executive’s employment by the Company and its subsidiaries is terminated (A) by the Company and all subsidiaries of the Company otherwise than as a result of the occurrence of
