(g) Effect of Transactions. The execution, delivery and performance by the Company of this Agreement and any Related Agreement to which the Company or any Subsidiary is a party, and the consummation of the Transactions, will not conflict with or result in any violation of or default under (with or without notice or lapse of time, or both), or give rise to a right of termination, cancellation, modification or acceleration of any obligation or loss of any benefit under any Company Employee Plan, trust or loan that would reasonably be expected to result in any payment (whether of severance pay or otherwise), acceleration, forgiveness of indebtedness, vesting, distribution, increase in benefits or obligation to fund benefits with respect to any Employee (disregarding any termination of employment which occurs in connection with the Transactions).

Since December 31, 2004 and through December 31, 2008, each plan, program, arrangement or agreement identified or required to be identified on Schedule 3.25(1) has been operated and maintained in accordance with a good faith, reasonable interpretation of Section 409A of the Code with respect to amounts deferred (within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code).

(o) At all times SPE has been properly treated for all relevant income tax purposes as either a disregarded entity or partnership. The SPE Acquisition will be reported as a contribution of property to a partnership solely in exchange for interests in such partnership within the meaning of Section 721(a) of the Code. As of the time of the SPE Acquisition, there will have been no material difference between the (x) aggregate amount of the adjusted bases of the property of IBP Holdings, LLC and (y) the aggregate amount of the adjusted bases of the membership interests in IBP Holdings, LLC contributed to SPE by members of IBP Holdings, LLC.

The Company Authorizations are in full force and effect and constitute all Company Authorizations required to permit the Company and each of the Subsidiaries to operate or conduct its business as currently conducted or as currently proposed to be conducted or to hold any interest in its properties or assets, except where the failure to be in full force and effect or the failure to obtain such Company Authorization would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.
