Employment and Benefit Matters (a) For the period commencing at the Effective Time and ending on December 31, 2011, Parent agrees to cause the Surviving Corporation to maintain base salary, bonus opportunity, retirement benefits, health benefits, welfare benefits, but not any stock-based benefits, for the Seller Personnel who remain employed after the Effective Time (collectively, the “Seller Employees”) at the same levels that are, in the aggregate, at least comparable to those in effect for similarly situated employees of Parent on the date hereof. Parent shall, and shall cause the Surviving Corporation to, treat, and cause the applicable benefit plans in which Seller Employees are entitled to participate to treat, the service of Seller Employees with Seller or any Subsidiary of Seller attributable to any period before the Effective Time as service rendered to Parent, the Surviving Corporation or any Subsidiary of Parent 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 excluding benefit accrual (including minimum pension amount) and eligibility for early retirement under any defined benefit plan of Parent or eligibility for retiree welfare benefit plans or as would otherwise result in a duplication of benefits. Without limiting the foregoing, Parent shall cause any pre-existing conditions or limitations, eligibility waiting periods or required physical examinations under any health or similar plan of Parent to be waived with respect to Seller Employees and their eligible dependents, to the extent waived or satisfied under the corresponding plan in which Seller Employees participated immediately prior to the Acceptance Date, and any deductibles paid by Seller Employees under any of Seller’s or its Subsidiaries’ health plans in the plan year in which the Acceptance Date occurs shall be credited towards deductibles under the health plans of Parent or any Subsidiary of Parent. Parent shall, and shall cause the Surviving Corporation to, use commercially reasonable efforts to make appropriate arrangements with its insurance carrier(s) to ensure such result. Seller Employees shall be considered to be employed by Parent “at will” and nothing shall be construed to limit the ability of Parent or the Surviving Corporation to terminate the employment of any such Seller Employee at any time. Parent will cooperate with Seller, and assume all costs, in respect of consultation obligations and similar notice and bargaining obligations owed to any employees or consultants of Seller or any Subsidiary of Seller in accordance with all applicable Laws and bargaining agreements, if any.
Intended Beneficiaries Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to give any person or entity other than the parties hereto any legal or equitable claim, right or remedy. Rather, this Agreement is intended to be for the sole and exclusive benefit of the parties hereto.
