9.2.2 The In-Service Distribution Date designated by the Participant (solely with respect
to distributions of Deferral Subaccounts);
9.2.3 The date of the Participants death or Disability; or
9.2.4 The date of a Change in Control of the Company.
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Participants shall not be entitled to elect
an In-Service Distribution Date with respect to their Matching and Discretionary Company
Contribution Subaccounts. Any Matching Contribution or Company Discretionary Contribution that
vests pursuant to Section 8.2.3 of the Plan after the date of a Change of Control shall be
distributed upon the Participants subsequent Separation from Service.
9.3. Methods of Distribution.
9.3.1 Distribution Methods. A Participants Benefit shall be paid in a single
lump sum payment, unless the Participant specifies in an Election that (1) a distribution of
Deferrals made pursuant to such Election and any Matching Contributions credited with respect to
such Election in the event of Retirement or Disability or (2) a distribution of Deferrals made
pursuant to such Election (but not any Matching Contributions credited with respect to such
Election) upon an In-Service Distribution Date shall be paid in quarterly or annual installment
payments of substantially equal amounts over a period as provided below:
|Reason for Distribution
||5 or 10 Years
||5 or 10 Years
In-Service Distribution Date
9.3.2 A Participant may amend a previous lump sum payment Election to take a distribution
upon Retirement, Disability or an In-Service Distribution Date in installments, by filing an
amended Election at least twelve (12) months in advance of the date specified in the original
Election. With respect to a distribution upon Retirement or an In-Service Distribution Date, the
new Distribution Date must be at least five (5) years after the date of the first distribution
specified in the original Election. No such amendment may accelerate the date that any
distribution would be made from the Plan.
9.3.3 The Participants method of distribution selected in his or her Election shall
remain in effect for all future similar Deferrals until changed by the Participant during a
subsequent Open Enrollment Period. The Participants method of distribution may be changed only in
accordance with the requirements of Section 9.3.2.
9.3.4 Failure to Properly Specify Form of Distribution. If, at the time of his or
her Distribution Date, a Participant has failed to elect a form of distribution or a Participant
who elects an installment distribution does not satisfy the requirements for the installment term
elected, then such Participants Benefits shall be distributed in a single lump sum payment.
9.3.5 Installment Amounts. For purposes of this Section 9.3, installment
distributions shall commence within sixty (60) days following a Participants Retirement or
Disability, and shall thereafter be paid within the thirty (30) day period beginning on the last
business day of each calendar quarter beginning with the calendar quarter next following the
quarter in which the initial payment date occurred (for quarterly installments) or on a date that
is within 30 days of each anniversary of the initial payment date (for annual installments).
Installment distributions with respect to an In-Service Distribution Date shall commence on the
business day corresponding with or immediately following the date elected by the Participant and be
paid within the 30-day period beginning on the last business day of each calendar quarter beginning
with the calendar quarter next following the quarter in which the initial payment date occurred
(for quarterly installments) or on a date that is within 30 days of each subsequent anniversary of
the In-Service Distribution Date (for annual installments).
9.3.6 Reemployed After Installments Begin. If a former Participant is reemployed
after having begun to receive installment distributions from the Plan, then such former
Participant, upon once again becoming an Eligible Employee, may begin a new period of participation
in the Plan; provided, however, that the installment distributions previously commenced will
continue to be paid to the Participant over the specified installment period.
9.3.7 Minimum Account Balance Necessary for Installments. Notwithstanding
anything in the Plan to the contrary, if a Participants Account balance is less than $50,000 at
the time elected to begin installment distributions, the Participants Benefit will automatically
be distributed in a single lump sum.
9.4 Election of In-Service Distribution Date.
9.4.1 Initial Election. Upon filing an Election to make Deferrals for any Plan
Year, a Participant may specify an In-Service Distribution Date for the Subaccount to which such
Deferrals are credited, subject to the following:
22.214.171.124 A Participant must elect an In-Service Distribution Date for all of the Deferrals
credited to such Subaccounts for the Plan Year.
126.96.36.199 The In-Service Distribution Date elected for any Deferral Subaccount must be at
least two (2) years after the end of the Plan Year for which the Deferrals to such Subaccount are
188.8.131.52 Benefits shall be paid (or payments shall commence in accordance with Section
9.3.5) on the elected In-Service Distribution Date elected for such Deferral Subaccount.
9.4.2 Revocation or Amendment of In-Service Distribution Election. A Participant
who has elected an In-Service Distribution Date may revoke and/or amend the In-
Service Distribution Date Election by filing a revocation or an amended Election at least
twelve (12) months in advance of the In-Service Distribution Date specified in the Election being
revoked or amended. The amended In-Service Distribution Date must be in a Plan Year that is at
least five (5) years after the In-Service Distribution Date specified in the prior Election. An
In-Service Distribution Date Election for any Deferral Subaccount may be amended only once.
Nothing in this Section 9.4.2 shall preclude a Participant from amending his or her Election as to
the method of distribution in accordance with Section 9.3.3, above.
9.4.3 Separation from Service Before the Planned In-Service Distribution Date. If
the Participant has a Separation from Service with the Employer before his In-Service Distribution
Date for any reason (other than Retirement or Disability, to the extent of a valid Retirement or
Disability election), distribution of the Participants Account shall be made in a single lump sum
payment within sixty (60) days after the Participants Separation from Service.
9.4.4 Separation from Service After Commencement of Installment In-Service
Distributions. Notwithstanding any prior Election, if the Participant has a Separation from
Service with the Employer for any reason (other than Retirement or Disability, to the extent of a
valid Retirement or Disability election) while receiving In-Service Distributions in the form of
installments, distribution of the Participants remaining installments shall be made in a single
lump sum payment within sixty (60) days after the Participants Separation from Service.
9.5 Distribution Upon Death of Participant. If a Participant dies before his or
her Benefit payments have commenced, then such Participants Benefits shall be paid to his or her
designated Beneficiary in a single lump sum cash payment within sixty (60) days following the date
of the Participants death. If a Participant dies after installment payments have commenced, his
or her remaining Account balance shall be paid to the Beneficiary in a single lump sum payment
within sixty (60) days after the Participants death.
9.6 Specified Employees. In the event of a distribution to a Specified Employee
based upon such individuals Separation from Service, no distributions will be made, irrespective
of any Election or provision of this Plan to the contrary, before the date which is six (6) months
and ten (10) days after the date of Separation from Service, or if earlier, the date of death of
the Specified Employee.
9.7 Limitation on Distributions to Covered Employees. Notwithstanding any other
provision of this Article 9, and subject to the requirements of Section 409A of the Code, in the
event the Participant is a covered employee as that term is defined in Section 162(m)(3) of the
Code, or would be a covered employee if Benefits were distributed in accordance with his or her
Election, the maximum amount which may be distributed from the Participants Account in any Plan
Year shall not exceed one million dollars ($1,000,000), less the amount of compensation paid to the
Participant in such Plan Year which is not performance-based (as defined in Code Section
162(m)(4)(C)), which amount shall be reasonably determined by the Committee at the time of the
proposed distribution. Any amount which is not distributed to the Participant in a Plan Year as a
result of this limitation shall be distributed to the Participant during the first Plan Year in
which the Company reasonably anticipates that the deduction will not be barred by application of
Section 162(m) of the Code, subject to compliance with the foregoing limitations set forth in this
9.8 Tax Withholding. Distributions under this Article 9 shall be subject to all
applicable withholding requirements for federal, state and local income or other taxes. Amounts
required to be withheld pursuant to this Section 9.8 shall be taken first from distributions of
cash and second, to the extent necessary to satisfy the minimum tax withholding requirements, from
the proceeds of the sale of shares of Company Common Stock distributed to the Participant, which
sale the Participant authorizes as a condition of participation in the Plan.
9.9 Section 280G Parachute Payment. In the event that any distribution from the
Plan received or to be received by a Participant (a Distribution) would (i) constitute a
parachute payment within the meaning of Section 280G of the Code, and (ii) but for this Section
9.9, cause the Participant to become subject to the excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Code
(the Excise Tax) or increase such Participants Excise Tax liability, then such Distribution may
be reduced to the largest amount which the Participant, in his or her sole discretion, determines
would result in no portion of the Distribution being subject to the Excise Tax. The determination
by a Participant of any reduction shall be conclusive and binding upon the Employer, the Company,
and the Committee. The Committee shall reduce a Distribution and/or shall accept the return of
some or all of a Distribution previously made to a Participant only upon written notice by the
Participant indicating the amount of such reduction. Any amounts returned to the Plan pursuant to
this Section 9.9 shall be treated as a forfeiture and shall be used to reduce the Companys future
contributions to the Plan or to pay costs associated with the operation and administration of the
9.10 409A Transition Rule Elections. The Plan Committee, in its sole discretion
and to the extent it deems appropriate, may permit Participants to make changes to existing payment
elections to be made prior to December 31, 2008 or such earlier date as the Committee may specify.
Any election changes made pursuant to this Section 9.10 may not defer into later years amounts that
would have been payable in 2008 or cause payment of amounts payable in later years to be
accelerated into 2008. Elections under this Section 9.10 shall comply in all respects with the
provisions of IRS Notice 2007-86 and other applicable IRS and Treasury guidance. In addition,
notwithstanding anything in this Plan to the contrary, deferral elections may be made prior to
January 1, 2009, pursuant to the rules specified in IRS Notice 2007-86. Any deferral or election
changes made after January 1, 2009 shall be required to comply with the requirements set forth in
10.1 Committee Structure. The initial number of Committee members shall be three
(3), until such number is changed by the approval of the majority of the Compensation Committee. A
member of the Committee must be an employee of the Employer or a member of the Board and shall
continue to serve until such member (i) resigns, (ii) is removed or (iii) terminates employment
with the Employer and no longer serves on the Board for any reason. The approval of at least
two-thirds (2/3) of the members of the Compensation Committee shall be required to remove a member
of the Committee. A majority of the remaining members of the Committee may fill one or more
vacancies on the Committee. The Committee may allocate and delegate some or all of its
responsibilities described in this Article 10 and otherwise as set forth
in the Plan. The Committees authority under this Article 10 shall at all times be subject to
the ability of the Compensation Committee to remove any or all of the members of the Committee for
any reason, change the number of members of the Committee, fill vacancies on such committee, and
establish rules and procedures for the Committee.
10.2 Committee Powers and Responsibilities. The Committee shall have control of
the administration of the Plan, with all powers necessary to enable it properly to carry out its
duties in that respect, including, but not limited to, the power and authority to:

granted to the Committee shall be exercised in accordance with rules and policies established by

each member of the Committee, and any other Employee or member of the Board with duties under the
Plan, against losses and expenses (including any amount paid in settlement) reasonably incurred by
such person in connection with any claims against such person by reason of such persons conduct in
the performance of his or her duties under the Plan, except in relation to matters as to which such
person has acted fraudulently or in bad faith in the performance of his or her duties.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall not indemnify any person for any expense incurred
through any settlement or compromise of any action unless the Company consents in writing to the
settlement or compromise.
10.5 Claims Procedure. Benefits shall be provided from this Plan through
procedures initiated by the Committee, and the Participant need not file a claim. However, if a
Participant or Beneficiary believes he or she is entitled to a Benefit different from the one
received, then the Participant or Beneficiary may file a claim for the Benefit by writing a letter
to the Committee.

claimant shall be given notice in writing of such denial within 90 days of the date the letter
claiming benefits is received by the Committee. If special circumstances require an extension of
time, written notice of the extension shall be furnished to the claimant within the initial 90-day
10.5.2 Notice of the denial shall set forth the following information: (a) the specific
reason or reasons for the denial; (b) specific references to pertinent Plan provisions on which the

request for review. If the claim is denied, wholly or in part, the claimant shall be promptly
given a copy of the decision. The decision shall be in writing and shall include specific reasons

operation and administration of the Plan.
AMENDMENT AND TERMINATION
11.1 Right to Amend. The Committee shall have the right to amend the Plan, at any
time and with respect to any of its provisions, and all parties claiming any interest under the
Plan shall be bound by such amendment; provided, however, that no such amendment shall deprive a
Participant of a right accrued under the Plan prior to the date of the amendment, unless such an
amendment is required by applicable law or deemed necessary to preserve the preferred tax treatment
of the Plan. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, only the Compensation Committee
shall have the authority to adopt amendments that result in a change to the matching contribution
formula under Section 4.5 of the Plan.
11.2 Amendments to Ensure Proper Characterization of Plan. Notwithstanding the
provisions of Section 11.1, the Plan may be amended by the Committee or the Compensation Committee
at any time, and retroactively if required, if found necessary, in the opinion of the Committee or

other appropriate governing body.

by any affiliated company, subsidiary corporation, parent corporation or unrelated corporation with
which the Company enters into a transaction to acquire the assets or stock of such unrelated
corporation, the Committee shall have the right, but not the obligation, to direct the Trustee to
transfer funds in an amount equal to the amount credited to such Participants Account (the
Transferred Account) to a trust established under a Transferee Plan. The Committee shall
determine, in its sole discretion, whether such transfer shall be made and the timing of such
transfer. Such transfer shall be made if, and only to the extent that, approval of such transfer
is obtained from the Trustee.
