1 Edward J. Record will succeed Kenneth H. Hannah as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer effective March 24, 2014. The grant date for Mr. Record's annual equity award will be the third trading day following commencement of his employment.

(2) Forms of Grant Notice. The performance-contingent stock options require that the price of the Company's common stock of 50 par value (the "Common Stock") appreciate by at least 50% over the option exercise price for a period of 20 consecutive trading days (the "price


hurdle" ). Mr. Ullman's performance-contingent stock options vest on the first anniversary of the grant date provided he remains continuously employed with the Company during that time
and will become immediately exercisable in full if the price hurdle is met at any time within four years of the grant date. For the other named executive officers, the performance-contingent stock options are subject to time-based vesting requirements over four years and will vest in full only if the price hurdle is met at any time within four years of the grant date. The performance-contingent stock options have a ten-year term, provided, however, if the price hurdle is not met prior to the fourth anniversary of the grant date, the options will be cancelled.

The number of performance-based restricted stock units granted to Mr. Ullman is a target award which may increase or decrease based on the extent to which the Company achieves the performance measurements established by the Committee of the Whole at the beginning of the performance cycle, which is the Company's fiscal year. The payout matrix established by the Committee of the Whole sets forth a range of payout percentages (from 50% to 200%) relative to the Company's actual results for the fiscal year. The performance measures are free cash flow (50%) and EBITDA (50%). For purposes of the award, free cash flow is defined as cash flow from operating activities less capital expenditures and dividends paid, plus proceeds from the sale of operating assets, and EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and pension expense, excluding certain non-recurring items. Following the conclusion of the performance cycle, the number of performance units earned in accordance with the payout matrix, subject to reduction at the discretion of the Committee of the Whole, will vest and will be paid out in shares of Common Stock in equal installments on each of the second and third anniversaries of the grant date.
