The employment agreements also provide that the named executive officers are entitled to reimbursement of business expenses incurred in connection with the performance of his or her duties and such retirement benefits and group health and other insurance coverage at such levels and on such terms as the Company generally provides to its executive level employees. In addition, the employment agreements entitle the named executive officers to indemnification in accordance with applicable law and the Company's bylaws and to coverage under the Company's directors and officers liability insurance programs during and after their employment (while potential liability exists) to the same extent as other officers and directors.

Payments Upon Termination

Each of the employment agreements provides that if the named executive officer is terminated by the Company for "cause", or if he or she terminates his or her employment without "good reason" (as such terms are defined in the employment agreements), he or she will be entitled only to accrued but unpaid base salary, accrued but unused vacation, unreimbursed expenses and any vested benefits which are accrued under the Company's employee benefits plans and arrangements as of the date of termination (collectively, the "Accrued Amounts"). All outstanding equity awards which are unvested as of the date of termination will be immediately forfeited upon a termination by the Company for cause or by the named executive officer without good reason.

Each of the employment agreements provides that if the named executive officer is terminated by the Company without cause, of if he or she terminates his or her employment for good reason, he or she will be entitled to (i) the


Accrued Amounts, (ii) a pro-rata annual bonus for the year of termination based on the achievement of applicable performance goals (the "Pro-Rata Bonus"), (iii) any annual bonus that has been determined for the year prior to termination but has not been paid as of the date of termination (the "Accrued Bonus") and (iv) an amount (the "Severance Amount") equal to the sum of the named executive officer's base cash salary plus the annual bonus earned by the named executive officer in the year prior to termination. All outstanding equity awards which are unvested as of the date of termination will be immediately vested upon a termination by the Company without cause or by the named executive officer for good reason. In the event such termination by the Company without cause or by the named executive officer for good reason occurs within twelve months following a change in control (as such term is defined in the employment agreements), the named executive officer will be entitled to receive the same payments and benefits except that the executive will receive two-times the Severance Amount plus an amount equal to two times the executive's target annual long-term incentive opportunity for the year of termination.

Pursuant to the employment agreements, the Company will have good reason to terminate the employment of a named executive officer as the result of the material failure of the executives to achieve personal goals and objectives mutually agreed upon between the named executive officer and the Company. In the event of such a "Company good reason" termination, the named executive officer will be entitled to (i) the Accrued Amounts, (ii) the Accrued Bonus, (iii) the Pro-Rata Bonus and (iv) an amount equal to one-half of the Severance Amount. All outstanding equity awards which are unvested as of the date of termination will become immediately forfeited in the event the Company terminates the named executive officer for the failure to achieve the agreed upon goals and objectives.

In the event of the named executive officer's death or if the Company terminates the employment of the named executive officer as a result of disability (as such term is defined in the employment agreements), the named executive officer will receive the Accrued Amounts, the Accrued Bonus, the Pro-Rata Bonus and all outstanding equity awards which are unvested as of the date of termination will become immediately vested.

Payments of the compensation and benefits following a termination of employment (other than the Accrued Amounts) are conditioned upon the named executive officer timely execution and delivery to the Company (without revocation) of a general waiver and release of claims.

Restrictive Covenants

During the term of the employment agreements and for a period of two years following termination, the named executive officers have agreed to certain non-disparagement, non-hiring and non-solicitation provisions. During the term of the new employment agreements for a period of one year following termination, the named executive officers have also agreed not to compete with the Company. The named executive officers have also agreed, during the term of the new employment agreements and at all times following termination, to certain confidentiality and non-disclosure provisions.

"Better-Off" Cutback

The employment agreements provide that, to the extent that any payment or benefit that the Executive would receive in connection with a change in control of the Company would constitute a parachute payment within the meaning of
Section 280G of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code)" and would otherwise be subject to the excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Code, then such amounts would be reduced to the extent necessary so that no such payments or benefits are subject to the excise tax, but only if such reduction would result in a better after-tax position for the executives than would receiving the full, unreduced payments and benefits.


Compensation Clawback

Pursuant to his or her employment agreement, each of the executives has agreed that if he or she becomes subject to the incentive compensation repayment requirements of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, he or she will enter into written agreements in order to comply with such Act and any regulations thereunder to the extent so required.
