For this purpose, the Officer is a key employee if the Officer meets the requirements of Code Section 416(i)(1)(A)(i), (ii), or (iii) (applied in accordance with the regulations thereunder and disregarding Code Section 416(i)(5)) at any time during the twelve (12) mo nth period ending on December 31.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Officer is a key employee determined under the preceding sentence, the Officer will be deemed to be a Specified Employee for the period commencing as of April 1 following such December 31 and through the succeeding March 31 or as otherwise required by Code Section 409A.  Also for purposes of this Section, the term ‘Service Recipient’ means the Employer and each business entity that, together with the Employer, constitutes the ‘service recipient’ as defined in Code Section 409A.”
