(c) Participant Direction. As authorized under the Plan, each Participant shall direct the Trustee in which investment option(s) to invest the assets in the Participant’s individual accounts. Such directions may be made by Participants by use of the telephone exchange system, the internet or in such other manner as may be agreed upon from time to time by the Sponsor and the Trustee. Such direction shall be made in accordance with written exchange guidelines attached hereto as Schedule “H”. The Trustee shall not be liable for any loss or expense that arises from a Participant’s exercise or non-exercise of rights under this Section 5 over the assets in the Participant’s accounts, unless such loss or expense is a direct result of the Trustee’s negligence. In the event that the Trustee fails to receive a proper direction from the Participant, the assets shall be invested in the investment option set forth for such purpose on Schedule “C”, until the Trustee receives a proper direction.

(d) Mutual Funds. The Named Fiduciary hereby acknowledges that it has received from the Trustee a copy of the prospectus for each Fidelity Mutual Fund selected by the Named Fiduciary as a Plan investment option or short-term investment fund. All transactions involving Non-Fidelity Mutual Funds shall be done in accordance with the operational guidelines attached hereto as Schedule “I”. Trust investments in Mutual Funds shall be subject to the following limitations:

(i) Execution of Purchases and Sales. Purchases and sales of Mutual Funds (other than for exchanges) shall be made on the date on which the Trustee receives from the Administrator in

 

6


good order all information, documentation and wire transfer of funds (if applicable), necessary to accurately affect such transactions.

Exchanges of Mutual Funds shall be made in accordance with the exchange guidelines attached hereto as Schedule “H”.

(ii) Voting.

The Participant shall have the right to direct the Trustee as to the manner in which the Trustee is to vote the shares credited to the Participant’s accounts (both vested and unvested). The Trustee shall vote the shares as directed by the Participant.

During the Participant Recordkeeping Reconciliation Period, the Named Fiduciary shall have the right to direct the Trustee as to the manner in which the Trustee is to vote the shares of the Mutual Funds in the Trust, including Mutual Fund shares held in any short-term investment fund for liquidity reserve. Following the Participant Recordkeeping Reconciliation Period, the Named Fiduciary shall continue to have the right to direct the Trustee as to the manner in which the Trustee is to vote any Mutual Funds shares held in a short-term investment fund for liquidity reserve.

The Trustee shall not vote any Mutual Fund shares for which it has received no directions from the Participant or the Named Fiduciary.

(e) Stock.

(i) FMC Stock Fund. Trust investments in FMC Stock shall be made via the FMC Stock Fund. Investments in the FMC Stock Fund shall consist primarily of shares of FMC Stock. The FMC Stock Fund shall also include cash or short-term liquid investments, in accordance with this paragraph, in amounts designed to satisfy daily participant exchange or withdrawal requests. Such holdings will include Colchester Street Trust: Money Market Portfolio: Class I, or such other Mutual Fund or commingled money market pool as agreed to in writing by the Sponsor and Trustee. The Named Fiduciary shall, after consultation with the Trustee, establish and communicate to the Trustee in writing a

 

7


target percentage and drift allowance for such short-term liquid investments. Subject to its ability to execute open-market trades in FMC Stock or to otherwise trade with the Sponsor, the Trustee shall be responsible for ensuring that the short-term investments held in the FMC Stock Fund falls within the agreed-upon range over time. Each Participant’s proportional interest in the FMC Stock Fund shall be measured in units of participation, rather than shares of FMC Stock. Such units shall represent a proportionate interest in all of the assets of the FMC Stock Fund, which includes shares of FMC Stock, short-term investments and at times, receivables and payables (such as receivables and payables arising out of unsettled stock trades). The Trustee shall determine a daily NAV for each unit outstanding of the FMC Stock Fund. Valuation of the FMC Stock Fund shall be based upon: (A) the Closing Price or, if not available, (B) the price determined in good faith by the Trustee taking into account the latest available price of FMC Stock, as reported on the NYSE or such other principal national securities exchange on which FMC Stock is traded. The NAV shall be adjusted for gains or losses realized on sales of FMC Stock, appreciation or depreciation in the value of those shares owned, dividends paid on FMC Stock to the extent not used to purchase additional units of the FMC Stock Fund for affected Participants, and interest on the short-term investments held by the FMC Stock Fund, payables and receivables for pending stock trades, receivables for dividends not yet distributed, and payables for other expenses of the FMC Stock Fund, including principal obligations, if any, and expenses that, pursuant to Sponsor direction, the Trustee accrues or pays from the FMC Stock Fund.

(ii) Acquisition Limit. Pursuant to the Plan, the Trust may be invested in FMC Stock to the extent necessary to comply with investment directions in accordance with this Agreement. The Sponsor shall be responsible for providing specific direction on any acquisition limits required by the Plan or applicable law. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, effective as of the Spin-Off Date, contributions and exchanges into the FMC Stock Fund are prohibited.

(iii) Fiduciary Duty.

(A) The Named Fiduciary shall continually monitor the suitability of acquiring and holding FMC Stock under the fiduciary duty rules of section 404(a) of ERISA (as modified by section 404(a)(2) of ERISA). The Trustee shall not be liable for any loss or expense which arises from the directions of the Named Fiduciary with respect to the acquisition and holding of FMC Stock, unless it is clear on their face that the actions to be taken under those directions would be prohibited by the foregoing fiduciary duty rules or would be contrary to the terms of this Agreement.

(B) Each Participant with an interest in FMC Stock (or, in the event of the Participant’s death, his beneficiary) is, for purposes of this Section 5(e)(iii), hereby designated as a “named fiduciary” (within the meaning of section 403(a)(1) of ERISA), with respect to the shares

 

8


allocated to his or her account that were not purchased at his or her direction, and shall have the right to direct the Trustee as to the manner in which the Trustee is to vote or tender such shares, including the right to direct the Trustee’s conduct, in accordance with disclosed rules, by his or her failure to respond within the required time frame.

(iv) Purchases and Sales of FMC Stock. Unless otherwise directed by the Sponsor in writing pursuant to directions that the Trustee can administratively implement, the following provisions shall govern purchases and sales of FMC Stock.

(A) Open Market Purchases and Sales. Purchases and sales of FMC Stock shall be made on the open market in accordance with the Trustee’s standard trading guidelines, as they may be amended by the Trustee from time to time, as necessary to honor exchange and withdrawal activity and to maintain the target cash percentage and drift allowance for the FMC Stock Fund, provided that:

(1) If the Trustee is unable to purchase or sell the total number of shares required to be purchased or sold on such day as a result of market conditions; or

(2) If the Trustee is prohibited by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the NYSE or principal exchange on which the FMC Stock is traded, or any other regulatory body from purchasing or selling any or all of the shares required to be purchased or sold on such day, then the Trustee shall purchase or sell such shares as soon thereafter as administratively feasible.

(B) Purchases and Sales from or to Sponsor. If directed by the Sponsor in writing prior to the trading date, the Trustee may purchase or sell FMC Stock from or to the Sponsor if the purchase or sale is for adequate consideration (within the meaning of section 3(18) of ERISA) and no commission is charged.

(C) Use of an Affiliated Broker. The Named Fiduciary hereby directs the Trustee to use NFSLLC to provide brokerage services in connection with any purchase or sale of FMC Stock on the open market, except in circumstances where the Trustee has determined, in accordance with its standard trading guidelines or pursuant to Sponsor direction, to seek expedited settlement of the trades. NFSLLC shall execute such directions directly or through any of its affiliates. The provision of brokerage services shall be subject to the following:

(1) As consideration for such brokerage services, the Named Fiduciary agrees that NFSLLC shall be entitled to remuneration under this direction provision in an amount of no more than three and one-fifth cents ($.032) commission on each share of FMC Stock. Any change in such remuneration may be made only by a signed agreement between the Named Fiduciary and Trustee.

 

9


(2) The Trustee will provide the Named Fiduciary with periodic reports which summarize all securities transaction-related charges incurred with respect to trades of FMC Stock for such Plan.

(3) Any successor organization of NFSLLC, through reorganization, consolidation, merger or similar transactions, shall, upon consummation of such transaction, become the successor broker in accordance with the terms of this direction provision.

(4) The Trustee and NFSLLC shall continue to rely on this direction provision until notified to the contrary. The Named Fiduciary reserves the right to terminate this direction upon written notice to NFSLLC (or its successor) and the Trustee, in accordance with Section 12 of this Agreement.

(v) Execution of Purchases and Sales of Units. Unless otherwise directed in writing pursuant to directions that the Trustee can administratively implement, purchases and sales of units shall be made as follows:

(A) Subject to subparagraphs (B) and (C) below, purchases and sales of units in the FMC Stock Fund (other than for exchanges) shall be made on the date on which the Trustee receives from the Administrator in good order all information, documentation, and wire transfers of funds (if applicable), necessary to accurately effect such transactions. Exchanges of units in the FMC Stock Fund shall be made in accordance with the Exchange Guidelines attached hereto as Schedule “H”.

(B) Aggregate sales of units in the FMC Stock Fund on any day shall be limited to the FMC Stock Fund’s Available Liquidity for that day. In the event that the requested sales exceed the Available Liquidity, then transactions shall be processed giving precedence to distributions, loans and withdrawals, and otherwise on a FIFO basis, as provided in Schedule “J” Specified Hierarchy for the FMC Stock Fund. So long as the FMC Stock Fund is open for such transactions, sales of units that are requested but not processed on a given day due to insufficient Available Liquidity shall be suspended until Available Liquidity is sufficient to honor such transactions in accordance with the Specified Hierarchy.

(C) The Trustee shall close the FMC Stock Fund to sales or purchases of units, as applicable, on any date on which trading in FMC Stock has been suspended or substantial purchase or sale orders are outstanding and cannot be executed.

 

10


(vi) Securities Law Reports. The Trustee shall not be responsible for filing any reports required under Federal or state securities laws with respect to the Trust’s ownership of FMC Stock, including, without limitation, any reports required under section 13 or 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Sponsor shall be responsible for immediately notifying the Trustee in writing of any requirement known to the Sponsor to stop purchases or sales of FMC Stock. The Trustee shall provide to the issuer of FMC Stock such information on the Trust’s ownership of FMC Stock as the issuer of FMC Stock may reasonably request in order to comply with Federal or state securities laws.

(vii) Voting and Tender Offers. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement the provisions of this Section shall govern the voting and tendering of FMC Stock.

(A) Voting.

(1) The Trustee shall furnish to the transfer agent of the issuer of FMC Stock the names, addresses and social security numbers of the Participants holding shares in the FMC Stock Fund, and the percentages of shares owned by each Participant as of the record date through reports and/or data tape. The issuer of FMC Stock shall be responsible for distributing proxy materials and voting instruction forms to Participants holding an interest in the FMC Stock Fund. In the event that the issuer of FMC Stock does not distribute said proxy materials and voting instruction forms to Participants holding an interest in FMC Stock, (i) the Sponsor shall utilize its best efforts to timely distribute or cause to be distributed for Participants said information; and (ii) the Sponsor shall, upon request, provide the Trustee with a copy of any material provided to Participants and certify to the Trustee that the materials have been mailed or otherwise sent to Participants

(2) Each Participant with an interest in the FMC Stock Fund shall have the right to direct the Trustee as to the manner in which the Trustee is to vote (including not to vote) that number of shares of FMC Stock reflecting such Participant’s proportional interest in the FMC Stock Fund (both vested and unvested). Directions from a Participant to the Trustee concerning the voting of FMC Stock shall be communicated in writing, or by such other means as is agreed upon by the Trustee and the Sponsor. These directions shall be held in confidence by the Trustee and shall not be divulged to the Sponsor, or any officer or employee thereof, or any other person except to the extent that the consequences of such directions are reflected in reports regularly communicated to any such persons in the ordinary course of the performance of the Trustee’s services hereunder. Upon its receipt of the directions, the Trustee shall vote the shares of FMC Stock reflecting the Participant’s proportional interest in the FMC Stock Fund as directed by the Participant.

 

11


(3) Prior to the Spin-Off Date, for all undirected shares of FMC Stock, both allocated and unallocated, the Trustee shall vote as directed by the Named Fiduciary, except as otherwise required by law. The Named Fiduciary may delegate to a fiduciary independent of the Trustee and the Sponsor, the authority to so direct the Trustee. The Sponsor shall bear the cost of any such delegation. After the Spin-Off Date, except as otherwise required by law, the Trustee shall vote all undirected shares of FMC Stock, both allocated and unallocated, in the same manner and in the same proportion as the total number of shares of FMC Stock credited to Participants’ accounts for which it has received direction from Participants.

(B) Tender Offers.

(1) Each Participant with an interest in the FMC Stock Fund shall have the right to direct the Trustee to tender or not to tender some or all of the shares of FMC Stock reflecting such Participant’s proportional interest in the FMC Stock Fund (both vested and unvested). Directions from a Participant to the Trustee concerning the tender of FMC Stock shall be communicated in writing, or by such other means as is agreed upon by the Trustee and the Sponsor. These directions shall be held in confidence by the Trustee and shall not be divulged to the Sponsor, or any officer or employee thereof, or any other person except to the extent that the consequences of such directions are reflected in reports regularly communicated to any such persons in the ordinary course of the performance of the Trustee’s services hereunder. The Trustee shall tender or not tender shares of FMC Stock as directed by the Participant.

Dear Ms. Birtwell:

In accordance with your request, this letter confirms that the Plan is intended to be qualified under section 401(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (including amendments made by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974) (the “Code”).

The Plan is a spin-off from the FMC Corporation Savings and Investment Plan and the FMC Corporation Savings and Investment Plan for Bargaining Unit Employees (“FMC Plans”). The most recent favorable determination letters as to the qualified status under section 401(a) of the Code of the FMC Plans are attached.

If the determination letter program is continued, FMC Technologies, Inc. intends to submit the Plan to the Internal Revenue Service to request a favorable determination letter as to the Plan’s qualified status under section 401(a) of the Code. FMC Technologies, Inc. may have to make some modifications to the Plan at the request of the Internal Revenue Service in order to obtain this favorable determination letter, but we do not expect any of these modifications to be material. FMC Technologies, Inc. anticipates that it will make these modifications.

Sincerely,

By 7:00 a.m. ET each Business Day following Trade Date FIIOC will provide, via facsimile, to the Fund Vendor a consolidated report of net purchase or net redemption activity that occurred in each Fund up to 4:00 p.m. ET on the prior Business Day. The report will reflect the dollar amount of assets and shares to be invested or withdrawn for each Fund. FIIOC will transmit this report to the Fund Vendor each Business Day, regardless of processing activity. In the event that data contained in the 7:00 a.m. ET facsimile transmission represents estimated trade activity, FIIOC shall provide a final facsimile to the Fund Vendor by no later than 9:00 a.m. ET. Any resulting adjustments shall be processed by the Fund Vendor at the net asset value for the prior Business Day.

The Fund Vendor shall send via regular mail to FIIOC transaction confirms for all daily activity in each Fund. The Fund Vendor shall also send via regular mail to FIIOC, by no later than the fifth Business Day following calendar month close, a monthly statement for each Fund. FIIOC agrees to notify the Fund Vendor of any balance discrepancies within twenty (20) Business Days of receipt of the monthly statement.

For purposes of wire transfers, FIIOC shall transmit a daily wire for aggregate purchase activity and the Fund Vendor shall transmit a daily wire for aggregate redemption activity, in each case including all activity across all Funds occurring on the same day.

Prospectus Delivery

FIIOC shall be responsible for the timely delivery of Fund prospectuses and periodic Fund reports to Participants, and shall retain the services of a third-party vendor to handle such mailings. The Fund Vendor shall be responsible for all materials and production costs, and hereby agrees to provide Fund prospectuses and periodic Fund reports to the third-party vendor selected by FIIOC. The Fund Vendor shall bear the costs of mailing annual Fund reports to Participants. FIIOC shall bear the costs of mailing prospectuses to Participants.

Schedule “L”

INVESTMENT GUIDELINES FOR THE MIP II BLEND FUND

Set forth below are the objectives and guidelines to be followed by Trustee for the administration of the MIP II Blend Fund (the “Account”) within the Plan established by the Sponsor.

I. INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES

The primary objective is to seek the preservation of capital. The secondary objective is to attempt to provide over time a competitive level of income consistent with the preservation of capital.

II. PORTFOLIO GUIDELINES

The Account shall be invested in the following classes of assets.

A. Universe

1. Investment Contracts. Investment Contracts (“Contracts”) are issued by insurance companies, banks or other financial-services institutions (the “Issuer(s)”) and evidence debt obligations of the applicable Contract Issuer(s) to the Plan. Contracts are either collateralized by the general underlying assets, or certain specific underlying assets, of the Contract Issuer(s).

All Contracts, at the time of purchase, shall be benefit-responsive, which means that they shall provide for benefit withdrawals and investment exchanges to be paid at full book-value (i.e., principal plus accrued interest). However, withdrawals prompted by an employer-initiated-event, such as withdrawals resulting from the sale of a division of the Sponsor, a corporate layoff or the addition of Plan investment options, for example, may be paid at the Contract’s market-value, which may be more or less than book-value.

The interest rate of a particular Contract may be either fixed or adjusted periodically according to an index or to reflect the performance of certain assets of the Contract Issuer. Maturity dates of Contracts may or may not be fixed. Contracts may include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

   

Fixed-rate contracts

 

   

Indexed-rate contracts

 

   

Participating-rate contracts

 

   

Structured contracts

 

   

Separate-account contracts

 

50


Schedule “L” (continued)

2. Synthetic Investment Products. Synthetic investment contract products (“Synthetic Products”) are comprised of both an investment component and a contractual component. The investment component consists of one or more securities or shares or units of a pooled portfolio of fixed-income securities (“Underlying Investment(s)”).

Underlying Investments may include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

   

Asset-backed securities

 

   

Mortgage-backed securities

 

   

Commercial mortgage-backed securities

 

   

Collateralized mortgage obligations

 

   

U.S. Treasuries

 

   

Securities issued or backed by U.S. government agencies, government-sponsored enterprises or similar U.S. government entities or instrumentalities

 

   

Securities issued by supranational organizations

 

   

Structured notes and similar arrangements

 

   

Corporate bonds

 

   

Private placements (including Rule 144a securities)

 

   

Units of commingled pools primarily invested in the above

 

   

Shares of mutual funds primarily invested in the above

 

   

Money market instruments

This investment component is “wrapped” by one or more contracts (“Wrap Contract(s)”) issued by insurance companies, banks or other financial-services institutions (the “Wrap Contract Issuers”). Wrap Contracts, at the time of purchase, shall be benefit-responsive, which means that they shall provide for benefit withdrawals and investment exchanges to be paid at the full book-value of the Underlying Investment(s) (i.e., principal plus accrued interest). In this manner, Wrap Contracts are designed to decrease the normal market fluctuations associated with the performance of the Underlying Investments. However, certain withdrawals, similar to those described above with respect to Contracts, may be paid at the market-value of the Underlying Investment(s) (which may be more or less than book-value).

The interest rate of a particular Synthetic Product may be either fixed or adjusted periodically and is in either case tied to the performance of the Underlying Investment(s). The maturity date of a particular Synthetic Product may be a fixed date or an indeterminate date.

3. Money Market Investments. Investments may be shares of mutual funds or units of commingled pools that are invested primarily in money-market instruments.

B. Credit and Diversification Limitations

1. At the time of purchase, Contract Issuers, Wrap Contract Issuers, and Underlying Investments must be deemed to be creditworthy by Trustee.

 

51


Schedule “L” (continued)

2. At the time of purchase, Contract Issuers and Underlying Investments must meet the then-current diversification requirements established by Trustee.

C. Investment Contract Disclosures

Detailed investment contract disclosures are attached as Appendix A.

D. Special Limitations and Restrictions

Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the following special limitations and restrictions shall apply:

1. Prior to purchasing for the Plan any class of assets not contemplated by the then-existing Investment Guidelines, the Investment Manager shall provide, and the Sponsor shall review, the contractual terms and conditions to investments in said class of assets that may apply with respect to the determination at various times of (i) market value, (ii) book value and (iii) the consequences, if any, of termination prior to maturity. If such terms and conditions are deemed in the Sponsor’s sole discretion to be acceptable, the Investment Guidelines shall be amended, upon the mutual written consent of the parties, to permit the Account to be invested in that class of assets.

2. The parties hereby acknowledge and agree that these Investment Guidelines are not to be employed for the purpose of making new investments in additional Account assets, but rather for the primary purpose of restructuring the Account assets from time to time as may be deemed necessary or appropriate by the Trustee in the Trustee’s sole discretion, it being expressly understood that as the Account assets mature, all available resulting proceeds will be directed to the Managed Income Portfolio II of the Fidelity Group Trust for Employee Benefit Plans (“MIP II”). Except as detailed below with respect to existing Contracts, the Trustee shall use its best efforts to complete the Account’s transition to MIP II by January 2, 2002.

With respect to the portion of the Account that is globally wrapped, the Trustee shall, if necessary, restructure the assets underlying such global wraps (the “Global Wrap Assets”) and manage such Global Wrap Assets to an immunization date of January 2, 2002. As the Global Wrap Assets mature, any available proceeds will be directed to MIP II. Unless directed otherwise, upon the latter of (1) the date that the last Global Wrap Asset matures and (2) January 2, 2002, the Trustee shall terminate the global wraps and transfer all available proceeds to MIP II.

The Trustee shall terminate the Contract designated CDC Financial Products, Inc. #BR391-01 and direct any available proceeds to MIP II no later than December 31, 2001. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, unless directed otherwise the Trustee shall not terminate any other existing Contracts prior to their maturity dates. Such Contracts shall be allowed to mature naturally before any resulting proceeds are directed to MIP II.

 

52


Schedule “L” (continued)

As used herein, the term “restructuring” may include, but is not limited to, asset substitutions, partial or total liquidations of particular assets and the purchase of one or more credit wraps. The parties further acknowledge and agree that any restructuring of assets may result in changes to the crediting rate (including reductions therein), maturity date or other contractual terms that were in place with respect to those assets prior to restructuring.

3. The parties acknowledge and agree that these Investment Guidelines do not apply to, and shall be of no force and effect with respect to, the administration by Trustee of MIP II.

4. The Sponsor hereby acknowledges and agrees that it has received from the Trustee a copy of the Group Trust and Declaration of Separate Fund for MIP II, and has read and understood the information contained therein.

These Investment Guidelines are effective as of the date first executed below on behalf of the Trustee and supersede all prior written and oral agreements regarding investments of the Account. Any deviation from or amendment to these Investment Guidelines must be approved in writing by both the Trustee and Sponsor prior to implementation thereof.

 

53


Appendix A

Investment Contract Disclosures

I. FUNDING COMMITMENTS

The terms of each investment contract are based upon the information in the bidding specifications given to potential bidders. Often detailed information about expected deposits and withdrawals is necessary to receive the best rate from an issuer on a given placement day.

Some investment contracts obligate the Plan to give a designated lump sum deposit to the issuer by a specific date. Other contracts require a Plan to direct all cash flow, including other contract maturities, to the issuer over a set period (the funding “window”). At the end of the window, the issuer expects a certain dollar amount to be received and may refuse to accept additional cash flow. In either case, the funding date may be several months following the commitment (“advance commitment” contracts).

If the Plan fails to fulfill its contractual funding obligations, there may be financial consequences for Plan participants. This is because the issuer conducts its financial affairs in reliance on receiving the deposits as promised. Consequently, issuers may include shortfall funding provisions in their contracts (particularly advance commitment contracts) in order to protect their financial position.

The responsibility for a funding shortfall will vary depending on the underlying cause. If participant activity (e.g. increased transfers out of the Account) causes the shortfall, issuers will generally either assume the risk or extend the funding date indefinitely. However, if a shortfall is caused by an employer-initiated event (e.g. an unexpected layoff, Plan termination, or a change in funding policy), the issuer will seek to be made whole under the terms of the contract. If the contract has not yet been funded, the issuer may seek reimbursement from the contract holder if the issuer incurs a financial loss.

As contract holder, Trustee intends to honor all funding commitments made on behalf of the Plan. In the event of a shortfall, however, Trustee would only assume responsibility to the extent that Trustee has been given funds by the Plan for deposit and subsequently fails to remit the funds to the issuer.

II. PLAN WITHDRAWALS AND INVESTMENT EXCHANGES

An investment contract generally imposes ongoing contractual commitments on the Plan to maintain the issuer’s promise to pay the book value of the contract. If the sponsoring employer changes Plan rules in a manner which changes significantly the amount of “benefit-responsive” withdrawals from a contract, the issuer may be authorized to lower the interest rate or assess a monetary penalty. Alternatively, the issuer may refuse to pay withdrawals prompted by the plan change. Employer-initiated events such as a large scale layoff or a sale of part of the business may cause the same consequences. Early advance notice to Trustee of a coming Plan change or corporate event is critical to provide Trustee sufficient time to try to minimize any financial consequences to the Plan.

A request by the Plan contract holder (sponsoring employer or trustee) to withdraw funds prior to the contract maturity date may also result in the assessment of a market value adjustment on the amount withdrawn. Some contracts don’t allow such pre-maturity withdrawals without issuer consent.

 

54


Due to the potential financial consequences to Plan participants in these types of situations, funding and withdrawal decisions must be carefully weighed by Plan sponsors, managers and trustees.
