Item 5.02.
Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
Messrs. Donald Casey and John Peyton, who are named executive officers of Realogy Holdings Corp. (the “Company”), and five other executive officers who report directly to the CEO of the Company (the “Participants”), have entered into Executive Severance Agreements with the Company (each, an “Agreement”), which, among other things, provide for severance protections upon certain terminations of employment. A description of these payments and benefits is set forth in the definitive proxy statement filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 16, 2018.
On October 31, 2018, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Committee”) approved the Realogy Holdings Corp. Severance Pay Plan for Executives (the “Severance Plan”), the Realogy Holdings Corp. Change in Control Plan for Executives (the “CIC Plan”) (the Severance Plan and the CIC Plan, together, the “Plans”) and the Realogy Holdings Corp. Executive Restrictive Covenant Agreement.
The Participants are each eligible to participate in the Plans. Although both of the Plans became effective on October 31, 2018, none of the Participants currently participate in the Plans and each continues to be subject to the terms of his or her individual Agreement. Mr. Casey’s Agreement is scheduled to expire on February 23, 2019, Mr. Peyton’s Agreement is scheduled to expire on October 13, 2019, and the Agreements with the five other Participants are scheduled to expire between February 23, 2019 and July 8, 2021, in each case subject to the terms of the Agreement.
The Participants may elect to join the Plans at any time prior to the expiration of their Agreement, but if no such election is made, each Participant will become subject to the Plans at the time of his or her Agreement expiration, provided that such Participant has executed an Executive Restrictive Covenant Agreement with the Company. Pursuant to the Executive Restrictive Covenant Agreements, each Participant will be subject to a non-compete period of two years and a non-solicitation period of three years following the Participant’s termination of employment for any reason.
The Severance Plan provides for severance protections upon certain terminations of employment not related to a change in control, while the CIC Plan provides for protections for certain terminations in connection with a change in control. The material terms and conditions of the Plans are summarized below.
Term. The Committee, as Plan Administrator of the Plans, may terminate, amend or modify that Plans at any time, provided that, except as required by law, the Plans may not be amended or terminated within six months prior to a change in control (as defined in the Plans) or on or within two years immediately following a change in control in a manner that would adversely affect the rights of a Participant without the express written consent of the Participant so affected.
Non-Change-in-Control Severance. Under the terms of the Severance Plan, if a Participant experiences a “qualifying termination” (as described below) not in connection with a change in control of the Company, the Company will provide the Participant with the following severance payments and benefits, subject to his or her continued compliance with the Restrictive Covenants Agreement and the execution and non-revocation of a release of claims:
an amount equal to one times the sum of the Participant’s annual base salary and target annual cash incentive payment, payable in twelve equal monthly installments;
a pro-rated annual cash incentive payment for the year of termination based on the Company’s actual performance and payable at such time such incentive payments are payable to other employees of the Company;
the continuation of medical and dental benefits for the Participant and his or her dependents for a period of up to eighteen months under the program or policy in effect from time to time at the Company; and
outplacement services for a period of up to twelve months, the value of such services not to exceed $50,000.
As of the date of this filing, Mr. Casey’s annual base salary is $475,000 and Mr. Peyton’s annual base salary is $680,000. Messrs. Casey and Peyton each have a target annual cash incentive payment under the Company’s Executive Incentive Plan of 100% annual base salary.
Payments and Benefits Upon a Termination due to Death, Disability or Retirement. Under the Severance Plan, upon a termination of employment due to death or disability or retirement, the Participant will be eligible to receive accrued compensation and a pro-rated annual cash incentive payment for the year of termination based on the Company’s actual performance and payable at such time such incentive payments are payable to other employees of the Company. In the case of





death, the Participant will also be eligible to receive a supplemental death insurance benefit in the amount of 2.5 times their annual base salary on the date of death up to $2 million (inclusive of any Company provided life insurance to the Participant), provided that such Participant has qualified for such benefit.
Change in Control Severance. Under the terms of the Severance Plan, if a Participant experiences a qualifying termination (i) within 24 months after a change in control of the Company or (ii) prior to a change in control (but, only if a change in control occurs) and such termination is determined to be in connection with or in anticipation of a change in control or is at the request or direction of a person who has entered into an agreement with the Company, the consummation of which would constitute a change in control, the Company will provide the Participant with the following severance payments and benefits, subject to his or her continued compliance with the Restrictive Covenants Agreement and the execution and non-revocation of a release of claims:
an amount equal to two times the sum of the Participant’s annual base salary and target annual cash incentive payment, payable in lump sum;
a pro-rated annual cash incentive payment for the year of termination based on the Participant’s target annual cash incentive payment, payable in lump sum;
the continuation of medical and dental benefits for the Participant and his or her dependents for a period of up to eighteen months under the program or policy in effect from time to time at the Company; and
outplacement services for a period of up to twelve months, the value of such services not to exceed $50,000.
Qualifying Termination. A “qualifying termination” means the Participant’s employment is terminated by the Company without cause or the Participant resigns with good reason, in either case, as such terms are defined in the Plans.
Section 280G. The Plans provide that if payments and benefits provided to the Participant would constitute an “excess parachute payment” for purposes of Section 280G of the tax code, the Participant will either have his or her payments and benefits reduced to the highest amount that could be paid without triggering Section 280G or receive the after-tax amount of his or her payment and benefits, whichever results in the greater after-tax benefit, taking into account the excise tax imposed under Section 4999 of the tax code and any applicable federal, state and local taxes.
Clawback. Under each of the Plans, the Company’s Clawback Policy applies in the event the Participant breaches his or her Restrictive Covenants Agreement.
The foregoing descriptions of the material terms of the Plans and the form of Executive Restrictive Covenant Agreement do not purport to be complete descriptions and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Severance Plan, the CIC Plan and the Executive Restrictive Covenant Agreement, which are filed as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

Executive Restrictive Covenant Agreement, continued coverage for the Participant and the Participant’s dependents, if applicable, under the terms of the medical or dental program or policy as in effect from time to time at the Company for eighteen (18) months following Termination (which such 18 month period shall run concurrently with the COBRA period and which coverage shall become secondary to any Medicare coverage for which Participant becomes eligible) and the Participant shall pay for such benefits at the same cost that active employees of the Company are required to pay for such benefits from time to time; provided, however, the Company and the Participant shall cooperate such that the continued coverage is, to the extent practicable, provided in a manner so as to minimize adverse tax consequences to the Company under Section 4980D of the Code; provided, further, continued coverage shall cease at such time as the Participant becomes eligible for coverage with a subsequent employer; and
(e)
Subject to Participant’s compliance with Section 3.7 hereof and the Realogy Holdings Corp. Executive Restrictive Covenant Agreement, outplacement services that are directly related to the type of services the Participant provided to the Company and are actually provided by an outplacement services firm for the 12-month period beginning on the Participant’s Termination Date on, or until Participant begins other full-time employment with a new employer, whichever occurs first, paid by the Company; provided, however, the cost of the outplacement services may not exceed $50,000.
In order to be eligible for benefits under this Section 3.4 in the event of a termination of employment for Good Reason, a Participant must provide notice of the existence of the Good Reason condition within ninety (90) days of the date Participant learns of the condition, and the Company shall have a period of thirty (30) days during which it may remedy the condition, and in case of full remedy such condition shall not be deemed to constitute Good Reason hereunder. In the event the Company is unable to remedy the Good Reason condition in all material respects within the thirty (30) day period, Participant’s employment with the Company shall terminate for Good Reason at the expiration of the thirty (30) day period.
3.5    Termination by Participant for Retirement. If a Participant’s employment is terminated due to the Participant’s Retirement, the Company shall provide the Participant with the following payments and benefits:
(a)
the Accrued Compensation, payable as soon as practicable following such termination of employment in accordance with applicable law; and
(b)
Subject to Participant’s compliance with Section 3.7 hereof and the Realogy Holdings Corp. Executive Restrictive Covenant Agreement, the Pro-Rata Bonus payable in a lump sum at the time such bonus or incentive awards are payable to other senior level executives.

8




For the avoidance of doubt, Participant’s Retirement shall not be deemed a termination of employment other than for Cause, Disability or death or a termination of employment for Good Reason.
3.6    Termination by Participant Other Than for Good Reason. If a Participant’s employment is terminated by the Participant for any reason, other than for Good Reason or Retirement, the Company shall pay or provide the Participant with the Participant’s Accrued Compensation. A Participant may voluntarily terminate his or her employment other than for Good Reason by delivering to the Company a Notice of Termination not less than thirty (30) days prior to the termination of Participant’s employment, and the Company may, in its sole discretion, select any date within such notice period as the effective date for Participant’s termination of employment Without Good Reason.
3.7    Release of Claims. Entitlement to the payments described in Sections 3.4(b), (c), (d) and (e) and Section 3.5(b) of the Plan shall be conditioned on a Participant: (i) complying with the Realogy Holdings Corp. Executive Restrictive Covenant Agreement; and (ii) delivering to the Company, a signed Separation Agreement and General Release of Claims in the form of Appendix II hereto within forty-five (45) days or twenty-one (21) days, as may be applicable under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, as amended by the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act, or such other time as necessary to comply with State law, following the Participant’s Termination Date, and not revoking Participant’s consent to such release of claims within seven (7) days of such execution; provided, however, that Participant shall not be required to release any rights a Participant may have under any indemnification agreement entered into between Participant and the Company provided, further, that in no event shall the timing of a Participant’s execution (and non-revocation) of the general release, directly or indirectly, result in a Participant designating the calendar year of payment, and to the extent required to avoid the imposition of additional tax under Section 409A of the Code, if a payment that is subject to execution (and non-revocation) of the general release could be made in more than one taxable year, payment shall be made in the later taxable year.
3.8    Clawback Policy. All payments under the Plan shall be subject to recovery by the Company to the extent required by law or, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Clawback Policy as in effect from time to time, under the Clawback Policy in the event Participant breaches his or her covenants as set forth in the Realogy Holdings Corp. Executive Restrictive Covenant Agreement.
3.9    Certain Tax Treatment. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein (or any other agreement entered into by and between the Company and a Participant, or any incentive arrangement or plan offered by the Company), in the event that the Total Payments paid to the Participant would constitute an “excess parachute payment” as defined in Section 280G of the Code, and would thereby subject the Participant to an Excise Tax, the provisions of this Section 3.9 of the Plan shall apply. If the aggregate present value (as determined for purposes of Section 280G of the Code) of the Total Payment exceeds the amount which can be paid to a Participant without Participant incurring an Excise Tax, then, solely to the extent that the Participant would be better off on an after tax basis by receiving the maximum amount which may be paid hereunder without the Participant becoming subject to the Excise Tax, as determined by a nationally recognized accounting firm designated by the Company prior to the occurrence of the Change in Control, the amounts payable

9




to Participant under this Plan (or any other agreement by and between the Participant and Company or any of its Affiliates or pursuant to any incentive arrangement or plan offered by the Company) shall be reduced (but not below zero) to the maximum amount which may be paid hereunder without the Participant becoming subject to the Excise Tax. In the event a Participant receives reduced payments and benefits as a result of application of this Section 3.9, the Participant shall have the right to designate which of the payments and benefits otherwise set forth herein (or any other agreement between the Company and the Participant or any incentive arrangement or plan offered by the Company) shall be received in connection with the application of the reduced payments, subject to the following sentence. Reduction shall be made in the following order: (i) at the discretion of the Participant, payments that are valued in full under Treasury Regulation Section 1.280G-1, Q&A 24 and are not subject to Section 409A of the Code, (ii) payments that are valued in full under Treasury Regulation Section 1.280G-1, Q&A 24 and are subject to Section 409A of the Code, with the amounts that are payable last reduced first, (iii) at the discretion of the Participant, payments that are valued at less than full value under Treasury Regulation Section 1.280G-1, Q&A 24 and are not subject to Section 409A of the Code and (iv) payments that are valued at less than full value under Treasury Regulation Section 1.280G-1, Q&A 24 and are subject to Section 409A of the Code, with the amounts that are payable last reduced first.
3.10    Section 409A. The Company intends for the payments and benefits under this Plan to be exempt from Section 409A of the Code or, if not so exempt, to be paid or provided in a manner which complies with the requirements of such section and intend that this Plan shall be construed and administered in accordance with such intention. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, to the extent required in order to avoid accelerated taxation and/or tax penalties under Section 409A of the Code, (i) no amounts shall be paid to a Participant under Article III of this Plan until the Participant would be considered to have incurred a “separation from service” from the Company within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code, (ii) amounts that would otherwise be payable and benefits that would otherwise be provided pursuant to this Plan during the six-month period immediately following the Participant’s separation from service shall instead be paid on the first business day after the date that is six (6) months following the Participant’s separation from service (or Participant’s death, if earlier), (iii) each amount to be paid or benefit to be provided under this Agreement shall be construed as a separately identified payment for purposes of Section 409A of the Code, (iv) any payments that are due within the “short term deferral period” as defined in Section 409A of the Code shall not be treated as deferred compensation unless applicable law requires otherwise and (v) amounts reimbursable to Participant under this Agreement shall be paid to Participant on or before the last day of the year following the year in which the expense was incurred and the amount of expenses eligible for reimbursement (and in-kind benefits provided to the Participant) during any one (1) year may not effect amounts reimbursable or provided in any subsequent year.
ARTICLE IV – CLAIMS PROCEDURE
4.1    Claim for Benefits. All Participants will automatically receive the benefits to which they are eligible under the Plan. If an individual is denied any benefit under the Plan, the claimant may file a claim with the Plan Administrator. The claim must be in writing and must be received by the Plan Administrator within one hundred eighty (180) days of the date of termination with the

10




Company. The Plan Administrator shall review the claim itself or appoint an individual or entity to review the claim. The claimant shall be notified within ninety (90) days after receipt of the claim by the Plan Administrator, whether the claim is allowed or denied, unless the claimant receives written notice prior to the end of the ninety (90) day period stating that circumstances require an extension of time for a decision and the date that a decision is expected to be provided to the claimant, which shall not exceed one hundred eighty (180) days after the claim is filed. If a claim is denied, the notification shall set forth, in a manner calculated to be understood by the claimant:
(a)
the specific reasons for the adverse determination;
(b)
reference to the specific Plan provisions on which the determination is based;
(c)
a description of any additional material or information necessary for the claimant to perfect the claim and an explanation of why such material or information is necessary; and
(d)
a description of the Plan’s review procedures and the time limits applicable to such procedures.
Failure to receive notification within the ninety (90) or one hundred eighty (180) day period, if applicable, shall be deemed a denial of the claim.
4.2    Appeal. An individual whose claim for benefits has been denied may request review by the Plan Administrator of the denied claim by notifying the Plan Administrator in writing within sixty (60) days after receipt of the notification of claim denial or, if written notice is not provided, within sixty (60) days after the expiration of the ninety (90) or one hundred and eighty (180) day period, if applicable, described in Section 4.1 of the Plan. As part of said review procedure, the claimant or his authorized representative may review pertinent documents and submit comments, documents, records, and other information relating to the claim for benefits to the Plan Administrator. The claimant or his authorized representative shall be provided, upon request and free of charge, reasonable access to, and copies of, all documents, records, and other information relevant to the claimant’s claim for benefits. The Plan Administrator shall provide for a review that takes into account all comments, documents, records, and other information submitted by the claimant relating to the claim, without regard to whether such information was submitted or considered in the initial determination. The Plan Administrator shall render its decision to the claimant in writing in a manner calculated to be understood by the claimant not later than sixty (60) days after receipt of the request for review, unless special circumstances require an extension of time, in which case decision shall be rendered as soon after the sixty (60) day period as possible, but not later than one hundred twenty (120) days after receipt of the request for review. If the Plan Administrator determines such an extension of time is required, written notice of the extension indicating the special circumstances requiring an extension of time and the date by which the Plan Administrator expects to render the determination on review shall be furnished to the claimant prior to the termination of the initial sixty (60) day period. The claimant shall be provided with notification of the benefit determination on review. In the case of an adverse benefit determination, the notification shall set forth, in a manner calculated to be understood by the claimant:

11




(a)
the specific reason or reasons for the adverse determination;
(b)
reference to the specific Plan provisions on which the benefit determination is based; and
(c)
a statement that the claimant is entitled to receive, upon request and free of charge, reasonable access to, and copies of, all documents, records, and other information relevant to the claimant’s claim for benefits.
Failure to receive notification within the sixty (60) or one hundred twenty (120) day period shall be deemed a denial of the appeal.
4.3    Legal Action.    No legal action for benefits under Section 6.9 the Plan may be brought until the claimant (i) has submitted a written application for benefits in accordance with the procedures described by Section 4.1 above, (ii) has been notified by the Plan Administrator that the application is denied (or the application is deemed denied due to the Plan Administrator’s failure to act on it within the established time period), (iii) has filed a written request for a review of the application in accordance with the appeal procedure described in Section 4.2 above and (iv) has been notified in writing that the Plan Administrator has denied the appeal (or the appeal is deemed to be denied due to the Plan Administrator’s failure to take any action on the claim within the time prescribed by Section 4.2 above).
4.4    Disability Claims.    Notwithstanding the foregoing, the provisions of this Section 4.4 will apply if a claim for a benefit requires a determination of Disability under the Plan.
(a)
Initial Denial. If a claim for a Disability benefit under the Plan is denied in whole or in part, the Plan Administrator will notify the claimant of its decision within 45 days of the date the claim was filed, unless an extension of time is necessary or the claimant voluntarily agrees to an extension. If, prior to the expiration of the initial 45-day period, the Plan Administrator determines that a decision cannot be made within that initial 45-day period due to matters beyond the control of the Plan, the Plan Administrator will notify the claimant before the end of the 45-day review period that a 30-day extension of time is necessary. If, prior to the end of the first 30-day extension period, the Plan Administrator determines that a decision cannot be made within that first 30-day extension period due to matters beyond the control of the Plan, the Plan Administrator will notify the claimant before the end of the first 30-day extension period that an additional 30-day extension of time is necessary. Any notice of an extension of time shall:
(i)
specify the circumstances requiring the extension of time and the date a decision is expected to be rendered;
(ii)
explain the standards on which entitlement to a Disability benefit is based;
(iii)
state the unresolved issues that prevent a decision on the claim; and

12




(iv)
describe any additional information needed to resolve those issues.
If the Plan Administrator requires additional information from the claimant to process the Disability benefit claim and a timely notice requesting the additional information is transmitted to the claimant, the claimant must provide the additional information within 45 days of the date the notice is provided. The claims review period will be temporarily suspended until the earlier of the date the claimant provides the required information or the end of the permitted response period.
The notice requesting additional information may also serve as notice of a claim denial if the notice clearly states that unless the claimant provides the requested information within the prescribed time period, the claim will be denied for failure to provide sufficient information. A combined notice must provide both the information described above and the information under Notice of Denial below. If the claimant is required to provide additional information, the Plan Administrator has discretion to decide whether to request the information and extend the initial review period, as described in this section or, instead, to deny the claim on the basis that there is not sufficient information to proceed.
(b)
Notice of Denial. If a Disability benefit claim is denied, the notice shall contain the following information:
(i)
the specific reasons for the denial;
(ii)
reference to the specific Plan provisions on which the denial is based;
(iii)
a description of any additional material or information necessary for the claimant to perfect the claim and an explanation of why such material or information is necessary;
(iv)
a statement that the claimant is entitled to receive, upon request and free of charge, reasonable access to, and copies of, all documents, records and other information relevant to the claim;
(v)
either (1) if the claim denial is based on an internal rule, guideline, protocol, or other similar provision, either the specific rule, guideline, protocol, or other similar criterion or a statement that such a rule, guideline, protocol, or other similar criterion was relied upon in making the adverse determination and that a copy thereof is available upon request, free of charge or (2) an affirmative statement that the claim denial is not based on an internal rule, guideline, protocol, or other similar criterion;
(vi)
if the claim denial is based on a medical necessity or experimental treatment or similar exclusion or limit, either an explanation of the scientific or clinical judgment for the determination, applying the terms of the plan to the

13




claimant’s medical circumstances, or a statement that such explanation is available upon request, free of charge;
(vii)
a discussion of the decision, including an explanation for disagreeing with or not following (1) the views presented by the claimant of health care professionals who treated the claimant and vocational professionals who evaluated the claimant (2) the views of medical or vocational experts whose advice was obtained on behalf of the Plan in connection with the adverse benefit determination, without regard to whether the advice was relied on in making the determination; and (3) any Disability determinations made by the Social Security Administration;
(viii)
a description of the review (i.e., appeal) procedures, the time limits applicable to such procedures, and in the event of an adverse review decision, a statement describing any voluntary review procedures and your right to obtain copies of such procedures; and (i) a statement that if the claimants request a review of the Plan Administrator’s decision and the review is adverse to the claimant, that there is no further administrative review following such initial review, and that the claimant will have a right to bring a civil action under ERISA §502(a).
The notice shall also include a statement advising the claimant that, within 180 days of the date the notice is received by the claimant, the claimant may obtain review of the decision as explained below.
(c)
Right to Appeal. Within the 180-day period beginning on the date the notice regarding disposition of the claim is received by the claimant, the claimant may request that the claim denial be reviewed by filing with the Plan Administrator a written request for such review. The written request for such review shall contain the following information:
(i)
the date on which the request was received by the Plan Administrator;
(ii)
the specific portions of the denial of the claim which is requested to be reviewed;
(iii
a statement setting forth the basis upon which the claimant believes the Plan Administrator’s denial of the claim should be reversed and the claim should be accepted; and
(iv)
any other written information (offered as exhibits) which the claimant wants to be considered to explain his or her position, without regard to whether such information was submitted or considered in the initial Disability benefit determination.

14




(d)
Review by Alternate Reviewer. Review of a Disability benefit claim that has been denied under the procedures described herein will be conducted by a reviewer who is neither the individual who made the adverse benefit determination that is the subject of the appeal, nor the subordinate of such individual. The reviewer will not afford deference to the initial adverse benefit determination, but will take into account all comments, documents, records, and other information submitted by the claimant relating to the claim, without regard to whether such information was submitted or considered in the initial benefit determination. If the adverse benefit determination was based on a medical judgment, the reviewer will consult with an appropriate health care professional who (i) was not consulted on the original adverse benefit determination, (ii) is not subordinate to someone who was consulted on the original adverse benefit determination, and (iii) has appropriate training and experience in the field of medicine involved in the medical judgment. The reviewer will either (A) provide claimant with a list of any experts whose advice was obtained on the original adverse determination, without regard to whether the advice was relied upon in making the determination or (B) notify claimant that he or she may request, in writing, a list of such experts. The claimant shall be provided reasonable access to, and copies of, all documents, records and other information relevant to the claim. No fee may be charged for such access and/or copies.
(e)
Review on Appeal. An appeal of an adverse Disability benefit determination will be reviewed within 45 days of the date it is received by the Plan Administrator (unless special circumstances require an extension to 90 days and the claimant so notified before the end of the 45-day review period). The reviewer will conduct a full and fair review of the Plan Administrator’s decision denying the claim for Disability benefits and will render its written decision. If the reviewer anticipates denying the appeal, whether in whole or in part, based on new or additional evidence or a new or additional rationale, the reviewer shall provide the claimant with:
(i)
the new or additional evidence considered, relied upon, or generated by or at the direction of the Plan, the insurer, the reviewer, or any other person making the Disability benefit determination and/or
(ii)
the new or additional rationale for the determination.
The information shall be provided to the claimant free of charge and as soon as possible so that the claimant shall have a reasonable opportunity to review the information and submit a response before the reviewer is required to render its decision. If the reviewer decides for whatever reason to deny, whether in whole or in part, the appeal of an adverse Disability benefit determination, the reviewer’s decision shall be provided in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner and contain the following:
(i)
the specific reasons for the denial;
(ii)
reference to specific Plan provisions on which the denial is based;

15




(iii)
a statement that the claimant is entitled to receive, upon request and free of charge, reasonable access to, and copies of, all documents, records, and other information relevant to the claim;
(iv)
either (1) if the claim denial is based on an internal rule, guideline, protocol, or other similar criterion, either the specific rule, guideline, protocol, or other similar criterion or a statement that such rule, guideline, protocol, or other similar criterion was relied upon in making the adverse determination and that a copy of the rule, guideline, protocol, or other similar criterion is available upon request, free of charge or (2) an affirmative statement that the claim denial is not based on an internal rule, guideline, protocol, or other similar criterion;
(v)
if the claim denial is based on a medical necessity or experimental treatment or similar exclusion or limit, either an explanation of the scientific or clinical judgment for the determination, applying the terms of the Plan to the claimant’s medical circumstances, or a statement that such explanation is available upon request, free of charge;
(vi)
a discussion of the decision, including an explanation for disagreeing with or not following (1) the views presented by the claimant of health care professionals who treated the claimant and vocational professionals who evaluated the claimant; (2) the views of medical or vocational experts whose advice was obtained on behalf of the Plan in connection with the adverse benefit determination, without regard to whether the advice was relied on in making the determination; and (3) any Disability determinations made by the Social Security Administration;
(vii)
a statement describing any voluntary review procedures and the claimant’s right to obtain copies of such procedures; and
(viii)
a statement that the claimant has a right to bring a civil action under ERISA §502(a).
4.5    Interpretation. In reviewing claims, in addition to the authority under Article VI of the Plan (and not by way of limitation), the Plan Administrator shall have sole and full discretionary authority to interpret the terms of the Plan, including any uncertain terms, to determine eligibility for, entitlement to, and the amount of any benefits, and to make factual findings and determine any other claims related to the Plan. Any interpretation or determination made pursuant to such discretionary authority shall be given full force and effect and shall be final, binding and conclusive on all interested parties and shall be afforded the maximum deference permitted by law.
ARTICLE V - TERMINATION, AMENDMENT OR MODIFICATION
Notwithstanding anything in this Plan to the contrary, the Plan Administrator expressly reserves the right, at any time, for any reason, without limitation, and in its sole and absolute discretion, to

16




terminate, amend or modify the Plan and any or all of the benefits provided thereunder, either in whole or in part, whether as to all persons covered thereby or as to one or more groups thereof, provided, however, that except as required by law, the Plan may not be amended or terminated within six (6) months prior to a Change in Control or on or within two (2) years immediately following a Change in Control in a manner that would adversely affect the rights of a Participant without the express written consent of the Participant so affected. If a Participant has become entitled to Severance Pay or is currently receiving Severance Pay and such Participant’s Separation Agreement and General Release of Claims has become effective, as provided under Article III, prior to such termination, amendment or modification, such severance payable shall not be reduced by the termination, amended or modification. The termination, amendment or modification of the Plan shall be effected solely by a document in writing.
ARTICLE VI – MISCELLANEOUS
6.1    Plan Interpretation and Benefit Determination. The Plan is administered and operated by the Plan Administrator, who has the exclusive discretionary authority and power to determine eligibility for benefits and to construe the terms and provisions of the Plan, to determine questions of fact and law arising under the Plan, to direct disbursements pursuant to the Plan and to exercise all other powers specified herein or which may be implied from the provisions hereof. The Plan Administrator may adopt such rules for the conduct of the administration of the Plan as it may deem appropriate. All interpretations and determinations of the Plan Administrator shall be final and binding upon all parties and persons affected thereby. The Plan Administrator may appoint one or more individuals and delegate such of its powers and duties as it deems desirable to any such individual(s), in which case every reference herein made to the Plan Administrator shall be deemed to mean or include the appointed individual(s) as to matters within their jurisdiction. Neither the Plan Administrator nor anyone acting on its behalf shall be liable in any manner for any action taken or determination made under the Plan in good faith.
6.2    No Additional Rights Created. Neither the establishment of this Plan, nor any modification thereof, nor the payment of any benefits hereunder, shall be construed as giving to any Participant, any beneficiary, or other person any legal or equitable right against the Company or any officer, Director or employee thereof; and in no event shall the terms and conditions of employment by the Company of any Participant be modified or in any way affected by this Plan. There is no promise of employment of any kind by the Company contained in this Plan. The Company continues to have the absolute right to terminate a Participant’s employment with or Without Cause.
6.3    Records. The records of the Company with respect to Base Salary, Incentive Compensation, Accrued Compensation, Pro-Rata Bonus, and all other relevant matters shall be conclusive for all purposes of this Plan.
6.4    Construction. This Plan shall be construed and enforced according to the laws of Delaware to the extent not preempted by federal law, which shall otherwise control. In addition, this Plan is intended to be exempt from the requirements of Section 409A of the Code and regulations promulgated thereunder, and to the extent this Plan is not so exempt, to comply with Section 409A, and this Plan should be interpreted, administered and operated accordingly. The Company does not guarantee the tax treatment of any payments or benefits under this Plan, whether pursuant to

17




the Code, federal, state or local tax law or regulations. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the terms of the Plan shall be modified to the extent required to meet the provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, Section 409A of the Code, or other federal law applicable to the employment arrangements between a Participant and the Company.
6.5    Financing. The Company shall pay for benefits under the Plan out of its general assets. No Participant or any other person shall have any interest whatsoever in any specific asset of the Company. To the extent that any person acquires a right to receive payments under this Plan, such right shall not be secured by any assets of the Company.
6.6    Successors and Assigns. The Plan shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the Company, its successors and permitted assigns and the Company shall require any successor or assign to expressly assume and agree to perform under the Plan in the same manner and to the same extent that the Company would be required to perform if no such succession or assignment had taken place. The Company may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations hereunder except to a successor (whether direct or indirect, by purchase, merger, consolidation or otherwise) to all or substantially all of the business and/or assets of the Company or to an Affiliate of the Company. The term “the Company” as used herein shall include a corporation or other entity acquiring all or substantially all the assets and business of the Company (including this Agreement) whether by operation of law or otherwise.
6.7    Incompetency. In the event that the Plan Administrator finds that a Participant is unable to care for his or her affairs because of illness or accident, then benefits payable hereunder, unless claim has been made therefore by a duly appointed guardian, committee, or other legal representative, may be paid in such manner as the Plan Administrator shall determine, and the application thereof shall be a complete discharge of all liability for any payments or benefits to which such Participant (or designated beneficiary) was or would have been otherwise entitled under this Plan.
6.8     No Mitigation. A Participant shall not be required to mitigate the amount of any payment provided for under this Plan by seeking other employment or otherwise and, except as provided in Sections 3.4(d) or (e) above, no such payment shall be offset or reduced by the amount of any compensation or benefits provided to a Participant in any subsequent employment.
6.9    Arbitration. Any controversy, dispute or claim arising out of or relating to the Plan, or its interpretation, application, implementation, breach or enforcement which the parties are unable to resolve by mutual agreement, shall be settled by submission by either party of the controversy, claim or dispute to binding arbitration in New York City, in the Borough of Manhattan (unless the parties agree in writing to a different location), before a single arbitrator in accordance with the Employment Dispute Resolution Rules of the American Arbitration Association then in effect. In any such arbitration proceeding the parties agree to provide all discovery deemed necessary by the arbitrator. The decision and award made by the arbitrator shall be final, binding and conclusive on all parties hereto for all purposes, and judgment may be entered thereon in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Each party shall bear its or her costs and expenses in any such arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys’ fees; provided, however, if a Participant prevails on substantially all material claims, the Company shall reimburse the Participant for his or her

18




reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. It is part of the essence of the Plan that any claims hereunder shall be resolved expeditiously and as confidentially as possible. Accordingly, all proceedings in any arbitration shall be conducted under seal and kept strictly confidential. In that regard, no party shall use, disclose or permit the disclosure of any information, evidence or documents produced by any other party in the arbitration proceedings or about the existence, contents or results of the proceedings except as necessary and appropriate for the preparation and conduct of the arbitration proceedings, or as may be required by any legal process, or as required in an action in aid of arbitration or for enforcement of or appeal from an arbitral award. Before making any disclosure permitted by the preceding sentence, the party intending to make such disclosure shall give the other party reasonable written notice of the intended disclosure and afford such other party a reasonable opportunity to protect its interests.
6.10    Remedies. All remedies hereunder are cumulative, are in addition to any other remedies provided for by law and may, to the extent permitted by law, be exercised concurrently or separately, and the exercise of any one remedy shall not be deemed to be an election of such remedy or to preclude the exercise of any other remedy.
6.11    Notice. Notices and all other communications provided for in the Plan shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given when personally delivered or sent by Certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, addressed to the respective addresses last given by each party to the other, provided that all notices to the Company shall be directed to the attention of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer with a copy to the Company’s General Counsel. All notices and communications shall be deemed to have been received on the date of delivery thereof or on the third business day after the mailing thereof, except that notice of change of address shall be effective only upon receipt.
6.12    Withholding. The Company shall be entitled to withhold the amount, if any, of all taxes of any applicable jurisdiction required to be withheld by an employer with respect to any amount paid to Participant hereunder. The Company, in its sole and absolute discretion, shall make all determinations as to whether it is obligated to withhold any taxes hereunder and the amount thereof.
6.13    Inconsistencies. In the event of any inconsistency between any provision of the Plan and any provision of any employee handbook, personnel manual, program, policy, or arrangement of the Company or its Affiliates (including, without limitation, any provisions relating to notice requirements and post-employment restrictions), the provisions of the Plan shall control.
6.14    Beneficiaries/References. In the event of Participant’s death or a judicial determination of her incompetence, references in this Plan to Participant shall be deemed, where appropriate, to refer to her beneficiary, estate or other legal representative.
6.15    Survivorship. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, the respective rights and obligations of a Participant and the Company hereunder shall survive the Participant’s termination of employment. Without limiting the generality of the forgoing, the provisions of Article III and Section 6.10 shall survive the Participant’s termination of employment.

In order to be eligible for benefits under this Section 3.1 in the event of a termination of employment for Good Reason, a Participant must provide notice of the existence of the Good Reason condition within ninety (90) days of the date Participant learns of the condition, and the Company shall have a period of thirty (30) days during which it may remedy the condition, and in case of full remedy such condition shall not be deemed to constitute Good Reason hereunder.

3.4    Certain Tax Treatment. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein (or any other agreement entered into by and between the Company and a Participant, or any incentive arrangement or plan offered by the Company), in the event that the Total Payments paid to the Participant would constitute an “excess parachute payment” as defined in Section 280G of the Code, and would thereby subject the Participant to an Excise Tax, the provisions of this Section 3.4 of the Plan shall apply. If the aggregate present value (as determined for purposes of Section 280G of the Code) of the Total Payment exceeds the amount which can be paid to a Participant without Participant incurring an Excise Tax, then, solely to the extent that the Participant would be better off on an after tax basis by receiving the maximum amount which may be paid hereunder without the Participant becoming subject to the Excise Tax, as determined by a nationally recognized accounting firm designated by the Company prior to the occurrence of the Change in Control, the amounts payable to Participant under this Plan (or any other agreement by and between the Participant and Company or any of its Affiliates or pursuant to any incentive arrangement or plan offered by the Company) shall be reduced (but not below zero) to the maximum amount which may be paid hereunder without the Participant becoming subject to the Excise Tax. In the event a Participant receives reduced payments and benefits as a result of application of this Section 3.4, the Participant shall have the right to designate which of the payments and benefits otherwise set forth herein (or any other agreement between the Company and the Participant or any incentive arrangement or plan offered by the Company) shall be received in connection with the application of the reduced payments, subject to the following sentence. Reduction shall be made in the following order: (i) at the discretion of the Participant, payments that are valued in full under Treasury Regulation Section 1.280G-1, Q&A 24 and are not subject to Section 409A of the Code, (ii) payments that are valued in full under Treasury Regulation Section 1.280G-1, Q&A 24 and are subject to Section 409A of the Code, with the amounts that are payable last reduced first, (iii) at the discretion of the Participant, payments that are valued at less than full value under Treasury Regulation Section 1.280G-1, Q&A 24 and are not subject to Section 409A of the Code and (iv) payments that are valued at less than full value under Treasury Regulation Section 1.280G-1, Q&A 24 and are subject to Section 409A of the Code, with the amounts that are payable last reduced first.
3.5    Section 409A. The Company intends for the payments and benefits under this Plan to be exempt from Section 409A of the Code or, if not so exempt, to be paid or provided in a manner which complies with the requirements of such section, and intend that this Plan shall be construed and administered in accordance with such intention. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, to the extent required in order to avoid accelerated taxation and/or tax penalties under Section 409A of the Code, (i) no amounts shall be paid to a Participant under Article III of this Plan until the Participant would be considered to have incurred a “separation from service” from the Company within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code, (ii) amounts that would otherwise be payable and benefits that would otherwise be provided pursuant to this Plan during the six-month period immediately following the Participant’s separation from service shall instead be paid on the first business day after the date that is six (6) months following the Participant’s separation from service (or Participant’s death, if earlier), (iii) each amount to be paid or benefit to be provided under this Agreement shall be construed as a separately identified payment for purposes

8



of Section 409A of the Code, (iv) any payments that are due within the “short term deferral period” as defined in Section 409A of the Code shall not be treated as deferred compensation unless applicable law requires otherwise and (v) amounts reimbursable to Participant under this Agreement shall be paid to Participant on or before the last day of the year following the year in which the expense was incurred and the amount of expenses eligible for reimbursement (and in-kind benefits provided to the Participant) during any one (1) year may not effect amounts reimbursable or provided in any subsequent year.
ARTICLE IV – CLAIMS PROCEDURE
4.1    Claim for Benefits. All Participants will automatically receive the benefits to which they are eligible under the Plan. If an individual is denied any benefit under the Plan, the claimant may file a claim with the Plan Administrator. The claim must be in writing and must be received by the Plan Administrator within one hundred eighty (180) days of the date of termination with the Company. The Plan Administrator shall review the claim itself or appoint an individual or entity to review the claim. The claimant shall be notified within ninety (90) days after receipt of the claim by the Plan Administrator, whether the claim is allowed or denied, unless the claimant receives written notice prior to the end of the ninety (90) day period stating that circumstances require an extension of time for a decision and the date that a decision is expected to be provided to the claimant, which shall not exceed one hundred eighty (180) days after the claim is filed. If a claim is denied, the notification shall set forth, in a manner calculated to be understood by the claimant:
(a)
the specific reasons for the adverse determination;
(b)
reference to the specific Plan provisions on which the determination is based;
(c)
a description of any additional material or information necessary for the claimant to perfect the claim and an explanation of why such material or information is necessary; and
(d)
a description of the Plan’s review procedures and the time limits applicable to such procedures.
Failure to receive notification within the ninety (90) or one hundred eighty (180) day period, if applicable, shall be deemed a denial of the claim.
4.2    Appeal. An individual whose claim for benefits has been denied may request review by the Plan Administrator of the denied claim by notifying the Plan Administrator in writing within sixty (60) days after receipt of the notification of claim denial or, if written notice is not provided, within sixty (60) days after the expiration of the ninety (90) or one hundred and eighty (180) day period, if applicable, described in Section 4.1 of the Plan. As part of said review procedure, the claimant or his or her authorized representative may review pertinent documents and submit comments, documents, records, and other information relating to the claim for benefits to the Plan Administrator. The claimant or his or her authorized representative shall be provided, upon request and free of charge, reasonable access to, and copies of, all documents, records, and other information relevant to the claimant’s claim for benefits. The Plan Administrator shall provide for a review that takes

9



into account all comments, documents, records, and other information submitted by the claimant relating to the claim, without regard to whether such information was submitted or considered in the initial determination. The Plan Administrator shall render its decision to the claimant in writing in a manner calculated to be understood by the claimant not later than sixty (60) days after receipt of the request for review, unless special circumstances require an extension of time, in which case decision shall be rendered as soon after the sixty (60) day period as possible, but not later than one hundred twenty (120) days after receipt of the request for review. If the Plan Administrator determines such an extension of time is required, written notice of the extension indicating the special circumstances requiring an extension of time and the date by which the Plan Administrator expects to render the determination on review shall be furnished to the claimant prior to the termination of the initial sixty (60) day period. The claimant shall be provided with notification of the benefit determination on review. In the case of an adverse benefit determination, the notification shall set forth, in a manner calculated to be understood by the claimant:
(a)
the specific reason or reasons for the adverse determination;
(b)
reference to the specific Plan provisions on which the benefit determination is based; and
(c)
a statement that the claimant is entitled to receive, upon request and free of charge, reasonable access to, and copies of, all documents, records, and other information relevant to the claimant’s claim for benefits.
Failure to receive notification within the sixty (60) or one hundred twenty (120) day period shall be deemed a denial of the appeal.
4.3    Legal Action. No legal action for benefits under Section 6.9 the Plan may be brought until the claimant (i) has submitted a written application for benefits in accordance with the procedures described by Section 4.1 above, (ii) has been notified by the Plan Administrator that the application is denied (or the application is deemed denied due to the Plan Administrator’s failure to act on it within the established time period), (iii) has filed a written request for a review of the application in accordance with the appeal procedure described in Section 4.2 above and (iv) has been notified in writing that the Plan Administrator has denied the appeal (or the appeal is deemed to be denied due to the Plan Administrator’s failure to take any action on the claim within the time prescribed by Section 4.2 above).
4.4    Interpretation. In reviewing claims, in addition to the authority under Article VI of the Plan (and not by way of limitation), the Plan Administrator shall have sole and full discretionary authority to interpret the terms of the Plan, including any uncertain terms, to determine eligibility for, entitlement to, and the amount of any benefits, and to make factual findings and determine any other claims related to the Plan. Any interpretation or determination made pursuant to such discretionary authority shall be given full force and effect and shall be final, binding and conclusive on all interested parties and shall be afforded the maximum deference permitted by law.


10



ARTICLE V - TERMINATION, AMENDMENT OR MODIFICATION
Notwithstanding anything in this Plan to the contrary, the Plan Administrator expressly reserves the right, at any time, for any reason, without limitation, and in its sole and absolute discretion, to terminate, amend or modify the Plan and any or all of the benefits provided thereunder, either in whole or in part, whether as to all persons covered thereby or as to one or more groups thereof, provided, however, that except as required by law, the Plan may not be amended or terminated within six (6) months prior to a Change in Control or on or within two (2) years immediately following a Change in Control in a manner that would adversely affect the rights of a Participant without the express written consent of the Participant so affected. If a Participant has become entitled to Change in Control Severance Pay or is currently receiving Change in Control Severance Pay and such Participant’s Separation Agreement and General Release of Claims has become effective, as provided under Article III, prior to such termination, amendment or modification, such severance payable shall not be reduced by the termination, amended or modification. The termination, amendment or modification of the Plan shall be effected solely by a document in writing.
ARTICLE VI – MISCELLANEOUS
6.1    Plan Interpretation and Benefit Determination. The Plan is administered and operated by the Plan Administrator, who has the exclusive discretionary authority and power to determine eligibility for benefits and to construe the terms and provisions of the Plan, to determine questions of fact and law arising under the Plan, to direct disbursements pursuant to the Plan and to exercise all other powers specified herein or which may be implied from the provisions hereof. The Plan Administrator may adopt such rules for the conduct of the administration of the Plan as it may deem appropriate. All interpretations and determinations of the Plan Administrator shall be final and binding upon all parties and persons affected thereby. The Plan Administrator may appoint one or more individuals and delegate such of its powers and duties as it deems desirable to any such individual(s), in which case every reference herein made to the Plan Administrator shall be deemed to mean or include the appointed individual(s) as to matters within their jurisdiction. Neither the Plan Administrator nor anyone acting on its behalf shall be liable in any manner for any action taken or determination made under the Plan in good faith.
6.2    No Additional Rights Created. Neither the establishment of this Plan, nor any modification thereof, nor the payment of any benefits hereunder, shall be construed as giving to any Participant, any beneficiary, or other person any legal or equitable right against the Company or any officer, Director or employee thereof; and in no event shall the terms and conditions of employment by the Company of any Participant be modified or in any way affected by this Plan. There is no promise of employment of any kind by the Company contained in this Plan. The Company continues to have the absolute right to terminate a Participant’s employment with or Without Cause.
6.3    Records. The records of the Company with respect to Base Salary, Incentive Compensation, Accrued Compensation, Pro-Rata Bonus, and all other relevant matters shall be conclusive for all purposes of this Plan.

11



6.4    Construction. This Plan shall be construed and enforced according to the laws of Delaware to the extent not preempted by federal law, which shall otherwise control. In addition, this Plan is intended to be exempt from the requirements of Section 409A of the Code and regulations promulgated thereunder, and to the extent this Plan is not so exempt, to comply with Section 409A, and this Plan should be interpreted, administered and operated accordingly. The Company does not guarantee the tax treatment of any payments or benefits under this Plan, whether pursuant to the Code, federal, state or local tax law or regulations. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the terms of the Plan shall be modified to the extent required to meet the provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, Section 409A of the Code, or other federal law applicable to the employment arrangements between a Participant and the Company.
6.5    Financing. The Company shall pay for benefits under the Plan out of its general assets. No Participant or any other person shall have any interest whatsoever in any specific asset of the Company. To the extent that any person acquires a right to receive payments under this Plan, such right shall not be secured by any assets of the Company.
6.6    Successors and Assigns. The Plan shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the Company, its successors and permitted assigns and the Company shall require any successor or assign to expressly assume and agree to perform under the Plan in the same manner and to the same extent that the Company would be required to perform if no such succession or assignment had taken place. The Company may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations hereunder except to a successor (whether direct or indirect, by purchase, merger, consolidation or otherwise) to all or substantially all of the business and/or assets of the Company or to an Affiliate of the Company. The term “the Company” as used herein shall include a corporation or other entity acquiring all or substantially all the assets and business of the Company (including this Agreement) whether by operation of law or otherwise.
6.7    Incompetency. In the event that the Plan Administrator finds that a Participant is unable to care for his or her affairs because of illness or accident, then benefits payable hereunder, unless claim has been made therefore by a duly appointed guardian, committee, or other legal representative, may be paid in such manner as the Plan Administrator shall determine, and the application thereof shall be a complete discharge of all liability for any payments or benefits to which such Participant (or designated beneficiary) was or would have been otherwise entitled under this Plan.
6.8     No Mitigation. A Participant shall not be required to mitigate the amount of any payment provided for under this Plan by seeking other employment or otherwise and, except as provided in Sections 3.1(d) or (e) above, no such payment shall be offset or reduced by the amount of any compensation or benefits provided to a Participant in any subsequent employment.
6.9    Arbitration. Any controversy, dispute or claim arising out of or relating to the Plan, or its interpretation, application, implementation, breach or enforcement which the parties are unable to resolve by mutual agreement, shall be settled by submission by either party of the controversy, claim or dispute to binding arbitration in New York City, in the Borough of Manhattan (unless the parties agree in writing to a different location), before a single arbitrator in accordance with the Employment Dispute Resolution Rules of the American Arbitration Association then in effect. In

12



any such arbitration proceeding the parties agree to provide all discovery deemed necessary by the arbitrator. The decision and award made by the arbitrator shall be final, binding and conclusive on all parties hereto for all purposes, and judgment may be entered thereon in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Each party shall bear its or her costs and expenses in any such arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys’ fees; provided, however, if a Participant prevails on substantially all material claims, the Company shall reimburse the Participant for his or her reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. It is part of the essence of the Plan that any claims hereunder shall be resolved expeditiously and as confidentially as possible. Accordingly, all proceedings in any arbitration shall be conducted under seal and kept strictly confidential. In that regard, no party shall use, disclose or permit the disclosure of any information, evidence or documents produced by any other party in the arbitration proceedings or about the existence, contents or results of the proceedings except as necessary and appropriate for the preparation and conduct of the arbitration proceedings, or as may be required by any legal process, or as required in an action in aid of arbitration or for enforcement of or appeal from an arbitral award. Before making any disclosure permitted by the preceding sentence, the party intending to make such disclosure shall give the other party reasonable written notice of the intended disclosure and afford such other party a reasonable opportunity to protect its interests.
6.10    Remedies. All remedies hereunder are cumulative, are in addition to any other remedies provided for by law and may, to the extent permitted by law, be exercised concurrently or separately, and the exercise of any one remedy shall not be deemed to be an election of such remedy or to preclude the exercise of any other remedy.
6.11    Notice. Notices and all other communications provided for in the Plan shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given when personally delivered or sent by Certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, addressed to the respective addresses last given by each party to the other, provided that all notices to the Company shall be directed to the attention of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer with a copy to the Company’s General Counsel. All notices and communications shall be deemed to have been received on the date of delivery thereof or on the third business day after the mailing thereof, except that notice of change of address shall be effective only upon receipt.
6.12    Withholding. The Company shall be entitled to withhold the amount, if any, of all taxes of any applicable jurisdiction required to be withheld by an employer with respect to any amount paid to Participant hereunder. The Company, in its sole and absolute discretion, shall make all determinations as to whether it is obligated to withhold any taxes hereunder and the amount thereof.
6.13    Inconsistencies. In the event of any inconsistency between any provision of the Plan and any provision of any employee handbook, personnel manual, program, policy, or arrangement of the Company or its Affiliates (including, without limitation, any provisions relating to notice requirements and post-employment restrictions), the provisions of the Plan shall control.
6.14    Beneficiaries/References. In the event of Participant’s death or a judicial determination of her incompetence, references in this Plan to Participant shall be deemed, where appropriate, to refer to her beneficiary, estate or other legal representative.

13



6.15    Survivorship. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, the respective rights and obligations of a Participant and the Company hereunder shall survive the Participant’s termination of employment. Without limiting the generality of the forgoing, the provisions of Article III and Section 6.10 shall survive the Participant’s termination of employment.
6.16    Severability. The provisions of the Plan shall be deemed severable and the invalidity or unenforceability of any provision shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the other provisions hereof.
6.17    Non-transferability. Neither the Plan nor any right or interest hereunder shall be assignable or transferable by Participant, Participant’s beneficiaries or legal representatives, except by will or by the laws of descent and distribution.
6.18    Non-Duplication of Benefits. The Plan is intended to supersede, and not to duplicate, any other plan, program, arrangement or agreement providing the Participant with severance or related benefits in the case of a Participant’s CIC Termination. The payments and benefits under the Plan are in lieu of any payment and benefits under any plan or policy of the Company or any of its Affiliates regarding severance payments generally, including the Company’s Severance Pay Plan for Executives.
6.19    Certain Rules of Construction.
(a)
The headings and subheadings set forth in this Agreement are inserted for the convenience of reference only and are to be ignored in any construction of the terms set forth herein.
(b)
Wherever applicable, the neuter, feminine or masculine pronoun as used herein shall also include the masculine or feminine, as the case may be.

Executive shall deliver to the Company at the termination of his or her employment with the Company and its Affiliates, or at any time the Company may request, all memoranda, notes, plans, records, reports, computer tapes and software and other documents and data (and copies thereof) relating to the Confidential Information or the Work Product (as hereinafter defined) of the business of the Company or any of its Affiliates that Executive may then possess or have under his or her control.
5.    Proprietary Rights. Executive recognizes that the Company and its Affiliates possess a proprietary interest in all Confidential Information and Work Product and have the exclusive right and privilege to use, protect by copyright, patent or trademark, or otherwise exploit the processes, ideas and concepts described therein to the exclusion of Executive, except as otherwise agreed between the Company and Executive in writing. Executive expressly agrees that any Work Product made or developed by Executive or Executive’s agents or Affiliates during the course of Executive’s employment, including any Work Product which is based on or arises out of Work Product, shall be the property of and inure to the exclusive benefit of the Company and its Affiliates. Executive further agrees that all Work Product developed by Executive (whether or not able to be protected by copyright, patent or trademark) during the course of Executive’s employment, or involving the

2



use of the time, materials or other resources of the Company or any of its Affiliates, shall be promptly disclosed to the Company and shall become the exclusive property of the Company, and Executive shall execute and deliver any and all documents necessary or appropriate to implement the foregoing.
6.    Non-Disparagement. Executive covenants that from and after the Effective Date, Executive will not disparage or encourage or induce others to disparage the Company or its Affiliates, together with all of their respective past and present directors and officers, as well as their respective past and present managers, officers, shareholders, partners, employees, agents, attorneys, servants and customers and each of their predecessors, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Company Entities and Persons”); provided that such limitation shall extend to past and present managers, officers, shareholders, partners, employees, agents, attorneys, servants and customers only in their capacities as such or in respect of their relationship with the Company and its Affiliates. The term “disparage” includes, without limitation, comments or statements adversely affecting in any manner (i) the conduct of the business of the Company Entities and Persons, or (ii) the business reputation of the Company Entities and Persons. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to or shall prevent either Party from providing, or limiting testimony in response to a valid subpoena, court order, regulatory request or other judicial, administrative or legal process or otherwise as required by law.
7.    Cooperation in Any Investigations and Litigation. Executive agrees that Executive will reasonably cooperate with the Company and its Affiliates, and its counsel, in connection with any investigation, inquiry, administrative proceeding or litigation relating to any matter in which Executive becomes involved or of which Executive has knowledge as a result of Executive’s service with the Company by providing truthful information. The Company agrees to promptly reimburse Executive for reasonable expenses approved in writing in advance of being incurred (including travel expenses, attorneys’ fees and other expenses of counsel) by Executive, in connection with Executive’s cooperation pursuant to this Section 7. Such reimbursements shall be made within sixty (60) days following Executive’s submission of a written invoice to the Company describing such expenses in reasonable detail, and in no event later than the calendar year following the year in which the expenses are incurred. Executive agrees that, in the event Executive is subpoenaed by any person or entity (including, but not limited to, any government agency) to give testimony (in a deposition, court proceeding or otherwise) which in any way relates to Executive’s employment by the Company, Executive will, to the extent not legally prohibited from doing so, give prompt notice of such request to the Company’s General Counsel so that the Company may contest the right of the requesting person or entity to such disclosure before making such disclosure. Nothing in this provision shall require Executive to violate Executive’s obligation to comply with valid legal process. Executive shall also not, directly or indirectly, direct, encourage, assist, or advise any non-governmental third party to institute, commence or prosecute any claims, rights or causes of action in law or in equity in any forum or proceeding whatsoever against any of the Company Entities and Persons.
8.    Permitted Disclosures. Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 1833(b), Executive will not be held criminally or civilly liable under any Federal or State trade secret law for the disclosure of a trade secret of the Company that (a) is made (i) in confidence to a Federal, State, or local government official, either directly or indirectly, or to Executive’s attorney and (ii) solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law; or (b) is made in a complaint or other document that

3



is filed under seal in a lawsuit or other proceeding. If Executive files a lawsuit for retaliation by the Company for reporting a suspected violation of law, Executive may disclose the trade secret to Executive’s attorney and use the trade secret information in the court proceeding, if Executive (I) files any document containing the trade secret under seal, and (II) does not disclose the trade secret, except pursuant to court order. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to conflict with 18 U.S.C. § 1833(b) or create liability for disclosures of trade secrets that are expressly allowed by such section. Further, nothing in any agreement Executive has with the Company shall prohibit or restrict Executive from making any voluntary disclosure of information or documents related to any violation of law to any governmental agency or legislative body, or any self-regulatory organization, in each case, without advance notice to the Company.
9.    Blue Pencil. It is the intent and desire of Executive and the Company that the provisions of this Agreement be enforced to the fullest extent permissible under the laws and public policies as applied in each jurisdiction in which enforcement is sought. If any particular provision of this Agreement shall be determined to be invalid or unenforceable, such covenant shall be amended, without any action on the part of either Party hereto, to delete therefrom the portion so determined to be invalid or unenforceable, such deletion to apply only with respect to the operation of such covenant in the particular jurisdiction in which such adjudication is made.
10.    Survival. Executive’s obligations under this Agreement shall survive the termination of his or her employment.
