DERs. From the Date of Grant through the date the Phantom Units are converted and distributed pursuant to Paragraph 4 or earlier forfeited, if any distributions are made by the Partnership with respect to its Units, a DER will be paid to the Participant as soon as practicable following payment of a distribution. The DERs will be paid to the Participant in cash or Units as determined by the Committee in its sole discretion.
DERs. The Committee shall have the authority to determine the Employees, Officers and/or Directors to whom DERs are granted, whether such DERs are in tandem with other Awards or constitute separate Awards, whether the DERs shall be paid directly to the Participant, be credited to a bookkeeping account (with or without interest in the discretion of the Committee), any vesting restrictions and payment provisions applicable to the DERs, and such other provisions or restrictions as determined by the Committee in its discretion, all of which shall be specified in the applicable Award Agreements. Distributions in respect of DERs shall be credited as of the distribution dates during the period between the date an Award is granted to a Participant and the date such Award vests, is exercised, is distributed or expires, as determined by the Committee. Such DERs shall be converted to cash, Units, Restricted Units and/or Phantom Units by such formula and at such time and subject to such limitations as may be determined by the Committee. Tandem DERs may be subject to the same or different vesting restrictions as the tandem Award, or be subject to such other provisions or restrictions as determined by the Committee in its discretion. Notwithstanding the foregoing, DERs shall only be paid in a manner that is either exempt from or in compliance with Section 409A.
DERs. Beginning on the Date of Grant and ending on the last day of the Performance Period, on each date during such period that the MLP makes a cash distribution with respect to its Units you will be credited with an amount of cash equal to the product of (i) the cash distributions paid with respect to a Common Unit times (ii) your number of Performance Units. Your DERs shall be credited to a bookkeeping account by the Company. As soon as practical following the end of the Performance Period, your DER account will be paid (without interest) to you in cash or forfeited, as the case may be. The amount of your DER account to be paid to you will be equal to the product of the Performance Percentage times the amount credited to your DER account. DERs shall not be payable with respect to any Performance Unit that is forfeited or as to which you are not otherwise qualified to receive payment for based on the Performance Goal at the end of the Performance Period.
DERs. Unpaid, vested DERs shall be paid to the Participant as follows: as soon as reasonably practical, but not later than sixty (60) days, following the date on which a Phantom Unit and related DER vests, the Participant shall be paid an amount in cash equal to the amount then credited to the DER Account maintained with respect to such Phantom Unit.
DERs. At the end of the Restricted Period, the Company will pay to the Participant, or the Participant’s legal representative, the value of the DERs on the gross number of Units awarded to the Participant pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. The value of the DERs shall be the amount of all distributions per Unit that would have been earned and paid during the Restricted Period on the gross number of Units awarded, and no interest shall be paid on such amount. Such payment of the DERs shall be in cash and subject to tax withholding requirements.
DERs. Except as otherwise set forth in Section 5 below, in the event that any dividend or other distribution is declared and paid on shares of Common Stock after the Grant Date, but prior to the settlement, cancellation or forfeiture of this Award, the Participant shall be entitled to receive, upon the settlement of this Award or any portion thereof, an amount equal to the dividends or other distributions that would have been paid or issued on the number of shares of Common Stock underlying the number of PSUs that have vested in accordance with Section 2 or Section 5 and are then being settled. Such DERs shall be settled in the form of vested shares of Common Stock valued based on the volume weighted average price for the 20 trading days immediately preceding the applicable date of vesting, rounded up to the nearest whole share (as calculated by the Company). The Committee shall have the sole discretion to determine the dollar value of any DER paid other than in the form of cash, and its determination shall be controlling.
DERs. Each Phantom Unit subject to this Agreement is hereby granted in tandem with a corresponding DER, which shall remain outstanding from the Grant Date until the earlier of the settlement or forfeiture of the Phantom Unit to which it corresponds. The Company shall establish, with respect to each Phantom Unit, a separate DER bookkeeping account for such Phantom Unit (a “DER Account”), which shall be credited (without interest) on the applicable record dates for such distributions with an amount equal to the aggregate cash distribution that would have been paid to the Grantee if the Grantee were the record owner, as of the record date for such distribution, of a number of shares of Stock equal to the number of Phantom Units granted hereunder. If any amounts are credited to a DER Account in respect of a Phantom Unit prior to the Full Vesting Date, (a) if such Phantom Unit subsequently becomes fully vested, then, upon the Full Vesting Date, (i) the DER (and the DER Account) with respect to such fully vested Phantom Unit shall also become fully vested and (ii) as soon as administratively practicable following the Full Vesting Date, but in no event later than 60 days thereafter, the Grantee shall be paid cash equal to the amount credited to the DER Account relating to such fully vested Phantom Unit and (b) if such Phantom Unit is subsequently forfeited, then, upon the forfeiture of such Phantom Unit, the DER (and the DER Account) with respect to such forfeited Phantom Unit shall also be forfeited. DERs shall not entitle the Grantee to any payments relating to distributions paid after the earlier to occur of the Phantom Unit settlement date or the forfeiture of the Phantom Unit underlying such DER.
DERs. A DER shall be paid at the same time and under the same conditions as the underlying Performance Units are paid. No payments of DERs will be made prior to the end of the Restriction Period or if the Participant ceases to be employed by, or provide service to, the Employer prior to the end of the Restriction Period for any reason other than Retirement, death, Disability or involuntary termination by the Employer without Cause. The DERs will be paid to the Participant in cash or Units as determined by the Committee in its sole discretion as soon as practicable following the Restriction Period.
DERs. Until such time as the Phantom Units are paid or forfeited, if a cash distribution is paid by the Company on its Units, a DER will be paid to the Participant equal to the value of the cash payment that would have been paid if such Phantom Units credited to the Participant’s Phantom Unit Account at the time of the declaration of the cash payment had been Units. The DERs shall be paid to the Participant on the date on which the distribution is paid by the Company on Units.
