1.   Purpose; Types of Awards; Construction.
The purpose of the Con-way Inc. 2006 Equity and Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) (formerly known as the CNF, Inc. 2006 Equity and Incentive Plan) is to afford an incentive to selected employees of Con-way Inc. (the “Company”) and its Subsidiaries and Affiliates to continue as employees, to increase their efforts on behalf of the Company and to promote the success of the Company’s business. The Plan provides for the grant of stock options (including “incentive stock options” and “non-qualified stock options”), stock appreciation rights (either in connection with stock options granted under the Plan or independently of stock options), restricted stock, phantom stock units, dividend equivalents and other stock-based or cash-based Awards. The Plan is designed so that Awards granted hereunder intended to comply with the requirements for “qualified performance-based compensation” under Section 162(m) of the Code may comply with such requirements and, insofar as may be applicable to such Awards, the Plan shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with such requirements.
The Plan was originally approved by the Board and the Shareholders of the Company in 2006. The Plan was previously amended in September 2006 and December 2006 to make certain administrative changes, and the Plan is hereby amended and restated in 2008 to accomplish

1


 

the changes necessary to keep the Plan compliant with Sections 162(m) and 409A of the Code and also to make other administrative and clarifying changes to the Plan.

A Disposition of a Business Unit may occur even if such Business Unit constitutes part of a larger enterprise at the time of the relevant Disposition of a Business Unit transaction and such Disposition of a Business Unit involves such larger enterprise. However, a “Disposition of a Business Unit” shall not occur:
  (y)   Spin-off or Public Offering. In the event of the sale or distribution of ownership interests (including, without limitation, a spin-off) of the Business Unit to stockholders of the Company, or the sale of assets of the Business Unit to any corporation or other entity

5.   Stock Subject to the Plan.
  (a)   Plan Limit. The maximum number of shares of Stock reserved for issuance pursuant to Awards granted under the Plan over the term of the Plan is 6,200,000, subject to adjustment as provided in subsection (g). Each share of Restricted Stock, each Phantom Stock Unit payable in shares of Stock and each share of Stock subject to an Other Stock-Based Award that is granted shall reduce the pool by 1.72 shares. Determinations made in respect of the limitations set forth in this Section 5 shall be made in a manner consistent with the rules of the New York Stock Exchange (or any other applicable stock exchange).
 
  (b)   Individual Limit. The maximum number of shares of Stock with respect to which Options or SARs may be granted to a single individual over the term of the Plan is 1,550,000, subject to adjustment as provided in subsection (g). Determinations made in respect of the limitation set forth in the preceding sentence shall be made in a manner consistent with Section 162(m) of the Code.
 
  (c)   ISO Limit. The maximum number of shares of Stock that may be issued in the aggregate in respect of ISOs to all Grantees over the term of the Plan is 6,200,000, subject to adjustment as provided in subsection (g). Determinations made in respect of the limitation set forth in the preceding sentence shall be made in a manner consistent with Sections 422 and 424 of the Code.
 
  (d)   Limit on Restricted Stock, Phantom Stock Units and Other Stock-Based Awards. The maximum number of shares of Stock that may be issued in the aggregate in respect of Restricted Stock, Phantom Stock Units and Other Stock-Based Awards to all Grantees over the term of the Plan is 3,604,650, and the maximum number of shares of Stock that may be awarded in the form of Restricted Stock and Phantom Stock Units to a single individual over the term of the Plan is 500,000, in each case subject to adjustment as provided in subsection (g).
 
  (e)   Source of Shares. Such shares may, in whole or in part, be authorized but unissued shares or shares that shall have been or may be reacquired by the Company in the open market, in private transactions or otherwise.
 
  (f)   Adjustments to the Number of Shares that may be Issued.
  (i)   Options. If an Option expires, is surrendered, or becomes unexercisable without having been exercised in full, the unissued or retained shares of Stock shall become available for future grant under the Plan. Unissued shares of Stock that are retained by the Company, or issued shares that are surrendered by the Grantee to the Company, in each case upon exercise of an Option in order to satisfy the exercise price for such Option or any withholding taxes due with respect to such exercise, shall not be available for future grant under the Plan.
 
  (ii)   SARs. The number of shares that may be issued under the Plan shall not be reduced by the grant or exercise of SARs that can be settled only with cash. If an SAR may be settled with Stock, the number of shares that may be issued under the Plan shall be reduced upon grant by the full number of shares subject to the SAR. If an SAR that may be settled with stock expires without exercise or is settled with cash, the shares of Stock shall become available for future grant under the Plan. If an SAR is granted in tandem with an Option (so that the

9


 

      exercise of one reduces or eliminates the extent to which the other can be exercised), the number of shares of Stock that may be issued under the Plan shall be reduced upon grant by the total number of shares of Stock that are subject to the tandem Option and SAR, and if a tandem Option and SAR expires without exercise or is settled with cash the shares of Stock subject to such tandem Option and SAR shall become available for future grant. Shares of Stock that otherwise would be issued with respect to a SAR but are instead retained in order to satisfy withholding taxes shall not be available for new Awards.
 
  (iii)   Restricted Stock. If shares of Restricted Stock are withheld upon vesting to cover taxes, such shares shall not become available for future grant under the Plan. Shares of Restricted Stock that are forfeited shall become available for future grant under the Plan, on the basis of 1.72 shares for every such share of Restricted Stock.
 
  (iv)   Phantom Stock Units. The number of shares that may be issued under the Plan shall not be reduced by the grant or exercise of Phantom Stock Units that can be settled only with cash. If a Phantom Stock Unit may be settled with Stock, the number of shares that may be issued under the Plan shall be reduced at the time of grant by 1.72 times the full number of shares subject to the Phantom Stock Unit. If a Phantom Stock Unit that may be settled with Stock is forfeited, canceled, exchanged, surrendered or expires without a distribution of shares to the Grantee or is settled with cash, the shares of Stock shall become available for future grant under the Plan, on the basis of 1.72 shares for every such Phantom Stock Unit. Shares of Stock that otherwise would be issued with respect to a Phantom Stock Unit but are instead retained in order to satisfy withholding taxes shall not be available for new Awards.
 
  (v)   Other Stock-Based Awards. The number of shares that may be issued under the Plan shall not be reduced by the grant or exercise of Other Stock-Based Awards that can be settled only with cash. If an Other Stock-Based Award may be settled with Stock, the number of shares that may be issued under the Plan shall be reduced upon grant by 1.72 times the full number of shares subject to the Other Stock-Based Award. If an Other Stock-Based Award that may be settled with Stock is forfeited, canceled, exchanged, surrendered or expires without a distribution of shares to the Grantee or is settled with cash, the shares of Stock with respect to such Other Stock-Based Award shall, to the extent of any such forfeiture, cancellation, exchange, surrender, termination, expiration or settlement, become available for future grant under the Plan, on the basis of 1.72 shares for every share of Stock subject to such Other Stock-Based Award. Shares of Stock that otherwise would be issued with respect to a Stock-Based Award but are instead retained in order to satisfy withholding taxes shall not be available for new Awards.
  (g)   Reorganizations, etc. In the event that the Committee shall determine that any dividend or other distribution (whether in the form of cash, Stock, or other property), recapitalization, Stock split, reverse split, reorganization, merger, consolidation, spin-off, combination, repurchase, or share exchange, or other similar corporate transaction or event affects the Stock such that one or more adjustments or changes are necessary in order to prevent dilution or enlargement of the rights of Grantees under the Plan, then the Committee shall make such equitable changes or adjustments to

10


 

any or all of (i) the number and kind of shares of Stock or cash that may thereafter be issued in connection with Awards, (ii) the number and kind of shares of Stock or cash issued or issuable in respect of outstanding Awards, (iii) the exercise price, grant price, or purchase price relating to any Award; provided that, with respect to ISOs, such adjustment shall be made in accordance with Section 424(a) of the Code, (iv) the Performance Goals, and (v) the individual limitations applicable to Awards. Any such adjustments or changes shall be made in a manner such that the effect on Grantees under the Plan is consistent with the effect of the corporate transaction on shareholders generally.
6.   Terms of Awards.
Except as otherwise provided in the Plan, the term of each Award shall be for such period as may be determined by the Committee. Subject to the terms of the Plan and any applicable Award Agreement, payments to be made by the Company or a Subsidiary or Affiliate upon the grant, maturation, or exercise of an Award may be made in Stock or cash, or a combination thereof, as the Committee shall determine at the date of grant or thereafter and may be made in a single payment or transfer, in installments, or on a deferred basis. The Committee may make rules relating to installment or deferred payments with respect to Awards, consistent with Section 409A of the Code, including the rate of interest to be credited with respect to such payments. In addition to the foregoing, the Committee may impose on any Award or the exercise thereof, at the date of grant or thereafter, such additional terms and conditions, not inconsistent with the provisions of the Plan, as the Committee shall determine.
7.   Options.
The Committee is authorized to grant Options to Grantees on the following terms and conditions:
  (a)   Type of Award. The Award Agreement evidencing the grant of an Option under the Plan shall designate the Option as an ISO or an NQSO.
 
  (b)   Exercise Price. The exercise price per share of Stock purchasable under an Option shall be determined by the Committee; provided that, such exercise price shall be not less than the Fair Market Value of a share on the date of grant of such Option. The exercise price for Stock subject to an Option may be paid in cash or by an exchange of Stock previously owned by the Grantee, or a combination of both, in an amount having a combined value equal to such exercise price.
 
  (c)   Term and Exercisability of Options. Options shall be exercisable over the exercise period (which shall not exceed ten years from the date of grant), at such times and upon such conditions as the Committee may determine, as reflected in the Award Agreement; provided that the Committee shall have the authority to accelerate the exercisability of any outstanding Option at such time and under such circumstances as it, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate. An Option may be exercised to the extent of any or all full shares of Stock as to which the Option has become exercisable, by giving written notice of such exercise to the Committee or its agent.
 
  (d)   Termination of Employment, etc. An Option may not be exercised unless the Grantee is then in the employ of the Company or a Subsidiary or an Affiliate (or a company or a parent or subsidiary company of such company issuing or assuming the Option in a transaction to which Section 424(a) of the Code applies), and unless the Grantee has

11


 

      remained continuously so employed since the date of grant of the Option; provided that, the Award Agreement may contain provisions under which, in the event of specified terminations, the Option may continue to be exercisable to a date not later than the expiration date of such Option.
 
  (e)   Other Provisions. Options may be subject to such other conditions including, but not limited to, restrictions on transferability of the shares acquired upon exercise of such Options, as the Committee may prescribe in its discretion or as may be required by applicable law.
8.   SARs.
The Committee is authorized to grant SARs to Grantees on the following terms and conditions:
  (a)   In General. Unless the Committee determines otherwise, an SAR (i) granted in tandem with an NQSO may be granted at the time of grant of the related NQSO or at any time thereafter or (ii) granted in tandem with an ISO may only be granted at the time of grant of the related ISO. An SAR granted in tandem with an Option shall be exercisable only to the extent the underlying Option is exercisable.
 
  (b)   SARs. An SAR shall confer on the Grantee a right to receive an amount of cash or Stock with respect to each share subject thereto, upon exercise thereof, equal to the excess of (i) the Fair Market Value of one share of Stock on the date of exercise over (ii) the grant price of the SAR (which in the case of an SAR granted in tandem with an Option shall be equal to the exercise price of the underlying Option, and which in the case of any other SAR shall be such price as the Committee may determine, but not less than the Fair Market Value of a share on the date of grant of such SAR).
9.   Restricted Stock.
The Committee is authorized to grant Restricted Stock to Grantees on the following terms and conditions:
  (a)   Issuance and Restrictions. Restricted Stock shall be subject to such restrictions on transferability and other restrictions as the Committee may impose at the date of grant or thereafter, which restrictions may lapse separately or in combination at such times, under such circumstances, in such installments, or otherwise, as the Committee may determine; provided, however, notwithstanding the foregoing but subject to Section 14 hereof, each Restricted Stock Award shall be subject to restrictions, imposed at the date of grant, relating to either or both of (i) the attainment of Performance Goals by the Company or (ii) the continued employment of the Grantee with the Company, a Subsidiary or an Affiliate. All performance-based Restricted Stock Awards will have a minimum performance period of one (1) year, with no vesting prior to the end of the performance period except in the case of specified events, including, without limitation, death, Disability (which, for Plan purposes, is as defined in Treas. Reg. 1.409A-3(i)(4)) or a Change in Control. With respect to any shares of Restricted Stock subject to restrictions which lapse solely based on the Grantee’s continuation of employment with the Company, a Subsidiary or an Affiliate, such restrictions shall lapse over a vesting schedule (so long as the Grantee remains employed with the Company, a Subsidiary or an Affiliate) no shorter in duration than three years from the date of grant; provided that, such vesting schedule may provide for partial or installment vesting from time to time during such period, subject to acceleration in the case of specified events,

12


 

      including, without limitation, death, Disability or a Change in Control. Except to the extent otherwise provided in an Award Agreement, a Grantee granted Restricted Stock shall have all of the rights of a stockholder including, without limitation, the right to vote Restricted Stock and the right to receive dividends thereon (subject to subsection (d) below).
  (b)   Forfeiture. Upon termination of employment with the Company or a Subsidiary or Affiliate, during the applicable restriction period, Restricted Stock and any accrued but unpaid dividends or Dividend Equivalents that are at that time subject to restrictions shall be forfeited; provided that the Committee may provide, by rule or regulation or in any Award Agreement, or may determine in any individual case, that restrictions or forfeiture conditions relating to Restricted Stock will be waived in whole or in part in the event of terminations resulting from specified causes, and the Committee may in other cases waive in whole or in part the forfeiture of Restricted Stock.
 
  (c)   Certificates for Stock. Restricted Stock granted under the Plan may be evidenced in such manner as the Committee shall determine. If certificates representing Restricted Stock are registered in the name of the Grantee, such certificates shall bear an appropriate legend referring to the terms, conditions, and restrictions applicable to such Restricted Stock, and the Company shall retain physical possession of the certificate.
 
  (d)   Dividends. Dividends paid on Restricted Stock shall be paid at the dividend payment date, in cash or in shares of unrestricted Stock having a Fair Market Value equal to the amount of such dividends. Stock distributed in connection with a stock split or stock dividend, and distributed as a dividend, shall be subject to restrictions and a risk of forfeiture to the same extent as the Restricted Stock with respect to which such Stock has been distributed.
10.   Phantom Stock Units.
The Committee is authorized to grant Phantom Stock Units to Grantees, subject to the following terms and conditions:
  (a)   Award and Restrictions. Delivery of Stock or cash, as determined by the Committee, will occur upon expiration of the deferral period specified for Phantom Stock Units by the Committee. The expiration of the deferral period shall be consistent with the requirements of Section 409A of the Code. The Committee may condition the vesting and/or payment of Phantom Stock Units, in whole or in part, upon the attainment of Performance Goals.
 
  (b)   Forfeiture. Upon termination of employment during the applicable deferral period or portion thereof to which forfeiture conditions apply, or upon failure to satisfy any other conditions precedent to the delivery of Stock or cash to which such Phantom Stock Units relate, all Phantom Stock Units that are then subject to deferral or restriction shall be forfeited; provided that, the Committee may provide, by rule or regulation or in any Award Agreement, or may determine in any individual case, that restrictions or forfeiture conditions relating to Phantom Stock Units will be waived in whole or in part in the event of termination resulting from specified causes, and the Committee may in other cases waive in whole or in part the forfeiture of Phantom Stock Units.
The Committee is also authorized to issue Phantom Stock Units to employees who have elected Phantom Stock Units as an investment alternative under deferred compensation plans,

13


 

including the Company’s Deferred Compensation Plan for Executives and the Company’s 2005 Deferred Compensation Plan for Executives. Such Awards may be settled hereunder by the delivery of cash or shares of Stock and shall otherwise be subject to the terms and conditions of such plans.
11.   Dividend Equivalents.
The Committee is authorized to grant Dividend Equivalents to Grantees. The Committee may provide, at the date of grant, that Dividend Equivalents shall be paid or distributed when accrued or shall be deemed to have been reinvested in additional Stock, or other investment vehicles as the Committee may specify, provided that Dividend Equivalents (other than freestanding Dividend Equivalents) shall be subject to all conditions and restrictions of the underlying Awards to which they relate and shall be subject to the requirements of Section 409A of the Code. A Dividend Equivalent cannot be made payable upon the exercise of an Option or SAR unless it is a separate arrangement that independently satisfies Section 409A of the Code.
12.   Annual Incentive Compensation Program.
The Committee is authorized to grant Awards to Grantees pursuant to the Annual Incentive Compensation Program in the form of Other Cash-Based Awards, as deemed by the Committee to be consistent with the purposes of the Plan. Grantees will be selected by the Committee with respect to participation for a Plan Year and may include all employees. Awards granted under the Annual Incentive Compensation Program in respect of a Plan Year may be contingent on the attainment by the Company of one or more Performance Goals. The maximum payment that any Grantee may receive pursuant to an Award granted under the Annual Incentive Compensation Program in respect of any Plan Year shall be $3,000,000. Payments earned hereunder may be decreased or, with respect to any Grantee who is not a Covered Employee, increased in the sole discretion of the Committee based on such factors as it deems appropriate. No payment to any Covered Employee shall be made prior to the certification by the Committee that any applicable Performance Goals have been attained. The Committee may establish such other rules applicable to the Annual Incentive Compensation Program to the extent not inconsistent with Section 409A of the Code or, in the case of an Award intended to comply with Section 162(m) of the Code, to the extent not inconsistent with Section 162(m) of the Code.
13.   Other Stock-Based or Cash-Based Awards.
The Committee is authorized to grant Awards to Grantees in the form of Other Stock-Based Awards or Other Cash-Based Awards, as deemed by the Committee to be consistent with the purposes of the Plan. The Committee shall determine the terms and conditions of such Awards at the date of grant or thereafter.
Awards granted pursuant to this Section 13 may be granted with value and payment contingent upon the attainment of certain Performance Goals, so long as such goals relate to periods of performance in excess of one calendar year. If an Award is so granted and the Award is intended to comply with Section 162(m) of the Code the maximum payment that any Grantee may receive pursuant to such Awards in respect of any performance period shall be $3,000,000. Payments earned under such Awards may be decreased or, with respect to any Grantee who is not a Covered Employee, increased in the sole discretion of the Committee based on such factors as it deems appropriate, and no payment to any Covered Employee

14


 

shall be made prior to the certification by the Committee that any applicable Performance Goals have been attained.
Whether or not value and payment of an Award is contingent upon the attainment of Performance Goals, payment of an Award granted pursuant to this Section 13 shall be made within two and one half months of the calendar year in which the Award vested, unless payment is deferred under terms consistent with Section 409A of the Code. The Committee may establish such other rules applicable to the Other Stock-Based or Cash-Based Awards to the extent not inconsistent with Section 409A of the Code or, in the case of an Award intended to comply with Section 162(m) of the Code, to the extent not inconsistent with Section 162(m) of the Code.
14.   Change in Control Provisions.
Unless otherwise determined by the Committee at the time of grant and evidenced in an Award Agreement or in a plan pursuant to which Awards are granted, in the event of a Change in Control:
  (a)   any Award carrying a right to exercise that was not previously exercisable and vested shall become fully exercisable and vested; and
 
  (b)   the restrictions, payment conditions, and forfeiture conditions applicable to any other Award granted under the Plan shall lapse and such Awards shall be deemed fully vested, and any Performance Goals imposed with respect to Awards shall be deemed to be fully achieved.
However, payment of an Award shall not be accelerated unless the Change in Control also constitutes a “change in the ownership or effective control of the corporation, or in the ownership of a substantial portion of the assets of the corporation,” within the meaning of Section 409A(2)(A)(v) of the Code.
15.   Claims Procedures.
  (a)   Presentation of Claim. Any Claimant may deliver to the Plan Administrator a written claim for a determination with respect to the amounts distributable to such Claimant from the Plan. If such a claim relates to the contents of a notice received by the Claimant, the claim must be made within sixty (60) days after such notice was received by the Claimant. All other claims must be made within 180 days of the date on which the event that caused the claim to arise occurred. The claim must state with particularity the determination desired by the Claimant:
 
  (b)   Notification of Decision. The Plan Administrator shall consider a Claimant’s claim within a reasonable time, and shall notify the Claimant in writing:
  (i)   that the Claimant’s requested determination has been made, and that the claim has been allowed in full; or
 
  (ii)   that the Committee has reached a conclusion contrary, in whole or in part, to the Claimant’s requested determination, and such notice must set forth in a manner calculated to be understood by the Claimant:
 
  (iii)   the specific reason(s) for the denial of the claim, or any part of it;

15


 

  (iv)   specific reference(s) to pertinent provisions of the Plan upon which such denial was based;
 
  (v)   a description of any additional material or information necessary for the Claimant to clarify or perfect the claim, and an explanation of why such material or information is necessary; and
 
  (vi)   an explanation of the claim review procedure set forth in paragraph (c) below.
  (c)   Review of a Denied Claim. Within sixty (60) days after receiving a notice from the Committee that a claim has been denied, in whole or in part, a Claimant (or the Claimant’s duly authorized representative) may file with the Committee a written request for a review of the denial of the claim. Thereafter, but not later than thirty (30) days after the review procedure began, the Claimant (or the Claimant’s duly authorized representative):
  (i)   may review pertinent documents;
 
  (ii)   may submit written comments or other documents; and/or
 
  (iii)   may request a hearing, which the Plan Administrator, in its sole discretion, may grant.
  (d)   Decision on Review. The Plan Administrator shall render its decision on review promptly, and not later than sixty (60) days after the filing of a written request for review of the denial, unless a hearing is held or other special circumstances require additional time, in which case the Plan Administrator’s decision must be rendered within 120 days after such date. Such decision must be written in a manner calculated to be understood by the Claimant and it must contain:
  (i)   specific reasons for the decision;
 
  (ii)   specific reference(s) to the pertinent Plan provisions upon which the decision was based; and
 
  (iii)   such other matters as the Committee deems relevant.
  (e)   Determinations. All benefit claim determinations shall be made in accordance with governing plan documents. Where appropriate, the Plan provisions must be applied consistently with respect to similarly-situated Claimants.
 
  (f)   Exhaustion of Administrative Remedies. The Claimant must exhaust these administrative remedies prior to commencing any other proceeding with respect to claims arising under the Plan.
 
  (g)   Effective Date. This Section shall apply to all Awards outstanding as of January 1, 2006, under the CNF Inc. 1997 Equity and Incentive Plan, in addition to the Awards granted under this Plan.

16


 

16.   General Provisions.
  (a)   Nontransferability. Unless otherwise provided in an Award Agreement for an Award other than an ISO, Awards shall not be transferable by a Grantee except by will or the laws of descent and distribution or pursuant to a qualified domestic relations order as defined under the Code or Title I of ERISA, and shall be exercisable during the lifetime of a Grantee only by such Grantee or his guardian or legal representative.
 
  (b)   No Right to Continued Employment, etc. Nothing in the Plan or in any Award granted or any Award Agreement or other agreement entered into pursuant hereto shall confer upon any Grantee the right to continue in the employ of the Company, any Subsidiary or any Affiliate or to be entitled to any remuneration or benefits not set forth in the Plan or such Award Agreement, or other agreement or to interfere with or limit in any way the right of the Company or any such Subsidiary or Affiliate to terminate such Grantee’s employment.
 
  (c)   Taxes. The Company or any Subsidiary or Affiliate is authorized to withhold from any Award granted, any payment relating to an Award under the Plan, including from a distribution of Stock, or any other payment to a Grantee, amounts of withholding and other taxes due in connection with any transaction involving an Award (not to exceed the statutory minimum), and to take such other action as the Committee may deem advisable to enable the Company and Grantees to satisfy obligations for the payment of withholding taxes and other tax obligations relating to any Award. This authority shall include authority to withhold or receive Stock or other property and to make cash payments in respect thereof in satisfaction of a Grantee’s tax obligations. If Stock is distributed to a Grantee with respect to an Award or the exercise thereof, and the withholding taxes exceed any cash being distributed at the same time, the Grantee may elect to have shares of Stock withheld sufficient to satisfy the withholding taxes that are in excess of such cash.
 
  (d)   Stockholder Approval; Amendment and Termination. The Plan previously took effect on the Original Effective Date, but the Plan and any grants of Awards shall be subject to the approval of the stockholders of the Company, which approval must occur within twelve (12) months of the Original Effective Date. If the stockholders of the Company do not so approve the Plan (either because they did not vote on the Plan within the twelve (12) months or because they voted on the Plan within the twelve (12) months but did not approve it), the Plan and all rights hereunder shall immediately terminate and no Grantee or transferee shall have any rights under the Plan or any Award Agreement. The Board may at any time and from time to time alter, amend, suspend, or terminate the Plan in whole or in part; provided, however, that no amendment shall be effective without stockholder approval if such approval is required by law or New York Stock Exchange rules. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no amendment shall affect adversely any of the rights of any Grantee, without such Grantee’s consent, under any Award theretofore granted under the Plan. Unless earlier terminated by the Board pursuant to the provisions of the Plan, the Plan shall terminate on the tenth anniversary of its Original Effective Date. No Awards shall be granted under the Plan after such termination date.
 
  (e)   Section 409A. If any provision of this Plan, an Award Agreement, or a plan pursuant to which Awards are granted would cause compensation to be includible in a Grantee’s income pursuant to Section 409A(a)(1)(A) of the Code, such provision shall be void, and the Plan, Award Agreement, or such plan shall be amended retroactively in such a

17


 

      way as to achieve substantially similar economic results without causing such inclusion. The Company intends the Plan to meet the requirements of Section 409A of the Code, the regulations thereunder, and any additional guidance provided by the Treasury Department. The Committee shall interpret the Plan in such a way as to meet such requirements. Moreover, for purposes of applying the provisions of Section 409A of the Code to this Plan, each separately identified Award to which a Grantee is entitled under this Plan shall be treated as a separate payment. In addition, to the extent permissible under Section 409A of the Code, any series of installment payments under this Plan shall be treated as a right to a series of separate payments.
 
  (f)   No Rights to Awards; No Stockholder Rights. No Grantee shall have any claim to be granted any Award under the Plan, and there is no obligation for uniformity of treatment of Grantees. Except as provided specifically herein, a Grantee or a transferee of an Award shall have no rights as a stockholder with respect to any shares covered by the Award until the date of the issuance of a stock certificate to him for such shares.
 
  (g)   Unfunded Status of Awards. The Plan is intended to constitute an “unfunded” plan for incentive compensation. With respect to any payments not yet made to a Grantee pursuant to an Award, nothing contained in the Plan or any Award shall give any such Grantee any rights that are greater than those of a general creditor of the Company.
 
  (h)   No Fractional Shares. No fractional shares of Stock shall be issued or delivered pursuant to the Plan or any Award. The Committee shall determine whether cash or other Awards shall be issued or paid in lieu of such fractional shares or whether such fractional shares or any rights thereto shall be forfeited or otherwise eliminated.
 
  (i)   Regulations and Other Approvals
  (i)   The obligation of the Company to sell or deliver Stock with respect to any Award granted under the Plan shall be subject to all applicable laws, rules and regulations, including all applicable federal and state securities laws, and the obtaining of all such approvals by governmental agencies as may be deemed necessary or appropriate by the Committee.
 
  (ii)   Each Award is subject to the requirement that, if at any time the Committee determines, in its absolute discretion, that the listing, registration or qualification of Stock issuable pursuant to the Plan is required by any securities exchange or under any state or federal law, or the consent or approval of any governmental regulatory body is necessary or desirable as a condition of, or in connection with, the grant of an Award or the issuance of Stock, no such Award shall be granted or payment made or Stock issued, in whole or in part, unless listing, registration, qualification, consent or approval has been effected or obtained free of any conditions not acceptable to the Committee.
 
  (iii)   In the event that the disposition of Common Stock acquired pursuant to the Plan is not covered by a then current registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and is not otherwise exempt from such registration, such Stock shall be restricted against transfer to the extent required by the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or regulations thereunder, and the Committee may require a Grantee receiving Stock pursuant to the Plan, as a condition precedent to receipt of such Stock, to represent to the Company

18


 

      in writing that the Stock acquired by such Grantee is acquired for investment only and not with a view to distribution.
  (j)   Governing Law. The Plan and all determinations made and actions taken pursuant hereto shall be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware without giving effect to the conflict of laws principles thereof. Nothing in this document shall suggest that the Plan is subject to ERISA.
