     a. Eligibility for Benefit. As of November 1, 2002, the Corporation and the Employee entered into a Split-Dollar Agreement (the “Split Dollar Agreement”). The Employee shall be entitled to receive the Deferred Bonus provided hereunder from the Corporation in the event that the Split-Dollar Agreement is terminated as a result of a Change of Control in the Corporation. For purposes hereof, a Change in Control shall occur on the date of a change in control, within the meaning of Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, due to (i) one person or more than one person acting as a group, acquiring ownership of stock of the Corporation constituting more than 50% of the total fair market value or total voting power of such stock, or (ii) a majority of the Corporation’s board of directors being replaced by a majority of the Corporation’s board of directors prior to the date of such appointment or election.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Deferred Bonus shall not be paid prior to January 1, 2008.
