Severance Benefits. If Mr. Klappa meets the eligibility requirements of Paragraph 2.(a) hereof, he shall be entitled to a cash severance benefit in an amount equal to three times his Annual Compensation (the "Severance Amount"). If any portion of the Severance Amount constitutes an "excess parachute payment" (as such term is defined under Code Section 280G ("Excess Parachute Payment")), the Company shall pay to Mr. Klappa an additional amount calculated by determining the amount of tax under Code Section 4999 that he otherwise would have paid on any Excess Parachute Payment with respect to the Change in Control and dividing such amount by a decimal determined by adding the tax rate under Code Section 4999 ("Excise Tax"), the hospital insurance tax under Code Section 3101(b) ("HI Tax") and federal and state income tax measured at the highest marginal rates ("Income Tax") and subtracting such result from the number one (1) (the "280G Gross-up"); provided, however, that no 280G Gross-up shall be paid unless the Severance Amount plus all other "parachute payments" to Mr. Klappa under Code Section 280G exceeds three (3) times Mr. Klappa's "base amount" (as such term is defined under Code Section 280G ("Base Amount")) by ten percent (10%) or more; provided further, that if no 280G Gross-up is paid, the Severance Amount shall be capped at three (3) times Mr. Klappa's Base Amount, less all other "parachute payments" (as such term is defined under Code Section 280G) received by Mr. Klappa, less one dollar (the "Capped Amount"), if the Capped Amount, reduced by HI Tax and Income Tax, exceeds what otherwise would have been the Severance Amount, reduced by HI Tax, Income Tax and Excise Tax. For purposes of this Paragraph 2.(b), whether any amount would constitute an Excess Parachute Payment and any other calculations of tax, e.g., Excise Tax, HI Tax, Income Tax, etc., or other amounts, e.g., Base Amount, Capped Amount, etc., shall be determined by the tax department of the independent public accounting firm then responsible for preparing Southern's consolidated federal income tax return, and such calculations or determinations shall be binding upon the parties hereto.
