(b) Payment of Awards. As soon as reasonably practicable after the end of each Performance Period, the Committee shall (i) determine whether the performance objectives for the Performance Period have been satisfied, (ii) determine the amount of the incentive award to be paid to each Participant for such Performance Period and (iii) to the extent the incentive award is intended to meet the performance-based compensation exemption under Section 162(m) of the Code, certify such determination in writing.

Section 7. Termination of Employment

Unless otherwise determined by the Committee or specified in an employment or other binding agreement with the Participant, a Participant shall have no right to an incentive award under the Plan for any Performance Period in which the Participant is not actively employed by the Company or a Subsidiary on the last day of the Performance Period to which such award relates.

Section 10. General Provisions

(a) No Rights to Employment or Service. Nothing contained in the Plan shall create any rights of employment in any Participant or in any way affect the right and power of the Company or a Subsidiary to discharge any Participant or otherwise terminate the Participant’s employment or service at any time with or without cause or to change the terms of employment or service in any way.

(b) Non-Exclusive Plan. The adoption of the Plan by the Board shall not be construed as creating any limitations on the power of the Board or a committee thereof to adopt such other incentive arrangements as it may deem desirable.

(c) Unfunded Plan. Incentive awards under the Plan will be paid from the general assets of the Company, and the rights of Participants under the Plan will be only those of general unsecured creditors of the Company.

(d) Non-alienation of Benefits. Except as expressly provided herein, no Participant shall have the power or right to sell, transfer, assign, pledge or otherwise encumber the Participant’s interest under the Plan.

(e) Severability. In the event any provision of the Plan shall be held illegal or invalid for any reason, the illegality or invalidity shall not affect the remaining parts of the Plan, and the Plan shall be construed and enforced as if the illegal or invalid provision had not been included.

(f) Successors. All obligations of the Company under the Plan shall be binding on any successor to the Company, whether the existence of such successor is the result of a direct or indirect purchase, merger, consolidation, or other event, or a sale or disposition of all or substantially all of the business and/or assets of the Company and references to the “Company” herein shall be deemed to refer to such successors.

(g) Governing Law. All questions concerning the construction, validity and interpretation of this Plan shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the domestic laws of the State of Delaware applicable to contracts made and to be performed in the State of Delaware, excluding any conflicts or choice of law rule or principle that might otherwise refer construction or interpretation of this Plan to the substantive law of another jurisdiction.

(h) Code Section 409A Compliance. To the extent applicable, it is intended that this Plan and any incentive awards granted hereunder comply with, or qualify for an exemption from, the requirements of Section 409A of the Code and any related regulations or other guidance promulgated with respect to such Section by the U.S. Department of the Treasury or the Internal Revenue Service (“Section 409A”), and the Plan and any award agreement or other document relating to an award under the Plan shall be interpreted accordingly. Any provision that would cause the Plan or any incentive award granted hereunder to fail to satisfy Section 409A shall have no force or effect until amended to comply with Section 409A, which amendment may be retroactive to the extent permitted by Section 409A. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company makes no representation or warranty that awards under the Plan will not be subject to (or will comply with) Section 409A of the Code, or similar state laws, and in no event shall the Board, the Company or any affiliate of the Company (or their employees, agents, officers, directors, managers, successors or assigns) be liable to any Participant for any failure to comply with Section 409A, similar state laws, or an applicable exemption thereunder.

(i) Clawback of Benefits. The Company may (1) cause the cancellation of any incentive award, (2) require reimbursement of any incentive award by a Participant, and (3) effect any other right of recoupment of compensation provided under the Plan or otherwise in accordance with any Company policies that currently exist or that may from time to time be adopted or modified in the future by the Company and/or applicable law (each, a “Clawback Policy”). In addition, a Participant may be required to repay to the Company certain previously paid compensation, provided under the Plan, in accordance with any Clawback Policy. By accepting an incentive award, a Participant is also agreeing to be bound by any existing or future Clawback Policy adopted by the Company, or any amendments that may from time to time be made to the Clawback Policy in the future by the Company in its discretion (including without limitation any Clawback Policy adopted or amended to comply with applicable laws or stock exchange requirements) and is further agreeing that any rights a Participant has under the Plan may be unilaterally amended by the Company, without the Participant’s consent, to the extent that the Company in its discretion determines to be necessary or appropriate to comply with any Clawback Policy.
