Employees and Benefit Plans (a) From and after the Effective Time, Buyer agrees to provide the employees of the Company and any of its Subsidiaries who remain employed after the Effective Time (collectively, the “Company Employees”) with at least the types and levels of employee benefits (including employee contribution levels) comparable in the aggregate to those maintained by Buyer for similarly-situated employees of Buyer. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, at Buyer’s option, the Company Employees may remain insured under the Company’s current group medical plan until the plan year end. Buyer will treat, and cause its applicable benefit plans to treat, the service of the Company Employees with the Company or any of its Subsidiaries as service rendered to Buyer or any of its Subsidiaries for purposes of eligibility to participate, vesting and for other appropriate benefits including, but not limited to, applicability of minimum waiting periods for participation, but not for benefit accrual under any defined benefit plan (including minimum pension amount) attributable to any period before the Effective Time. Without limiting the foregoing, but subject to the terms and conditions of Buyer’s health and similar plans, Buyer shall not treat any employee of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries as a “new” employee for purposes of any exclusions under any health or similar plan of Buyer for a pre-existing medical condition to the extent that any such exclusion did not apply under a health or similar plan of the Company or its Subsidiaries, and any deductibles, co-payments or out-of-pocket expenses paid under any of the Company’s or any of its Subsidiaries’ health plans shall be credited towards deductibles, co-payments or out-of-pocket expenses under Buyer’s health plans upon delivery to Buyer of appropriate documentation. Buyer will make appropriate arrangements with its insurance carrier(s) to ensure such result.
