McKESSON CORPORATION
EXECUTIVE SURVIVOR BENEFITS PLAN
(Amended and Restated as of January 20, 2010)
A. PURPOSE
     This Plan was established to enable the Company to attract and retain key executive personnel by providing survivor benefits to Executives’ Beneficiaries. This Plan amends, restates and supersedes the 1988 Executive Survivor Benefits Plan. Since its original effective date, the Plan has been amended and restated on various occasions. The amendment and restatement has been approved by the Board as of January 20, 2010 and shall be effective as of such date except as otherwise set forth below.
B. ERISA PLAN
     This Plan is a welfare benefit program intended primarily for a select group of management or highly compensated employees of the Company. The Plan, therefore, is covered by Title I of ERISA.
C. PARTICIPATION
     1. Selection by Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee may select, at its discretion and from time to time as it decides, the key Executives who participate in this Plan; provided, however, that no new Executives may be designated to participate in this Plan after January 20, 2010. Participation in the Plan shall be limited to those Executives of the Company who are selected by the Compensation Committee. Selection of a key Executive to participate in the Plan may be evidenced by the terms of his or her Employment Agreement, if any, with the Company.
     2. Election Not to Participate. An Executive may elect not to participate in this Plan at any time; such election shall be in writing and shall become effective upon its receipt by the Administrator. No compensation or benefits in lieu of this Plan shall be paid to an Executive who elects not to participate, unless otherwise specifically approved by the Compensation Committee. An election not to participate shall be irrevocable unless otherwise determined by the Compensation Committee.
     3. Insurability. Executives selected by the Compensation Committee are not automatically entitled to the benefits provided under this Plan. Each Executive may be required to satisfy such requirements for insurability as the Company shall establish from time to time, if any, before he is entitled to benefits under this Plan.
     4. Addition and Removal of Participants. The Compensation Committee may, at its discretion and at any time, designate additional Executives to participate in the Plan and remove Executives from participation in the Plan; provided that, effective January 20, 2010, no additional Executives may be designated to participate in this Plan. When an Executive is removed from participation in the Plan by the Compensation Committee, his or her benefits, if

1


 

any, shall be determined under Section E; once removed from participation an Executive cannot subsequently be reinstated to participate in this Plan.
     5. Relation to Other Plans. If an Executive participates in this Plan, he or she shall not participate in any other survivor benefit or life insurance plan or similar program solely for Company Executives unless otherwise specifically approved by the Administrator in writing. For example, any Executive who participates in this Plan shall not receive any life insurance benefits under the McKesson Corporation 1984 Executive Insurance Plan, or its predecessor, the McKesson Executive Benefit Plan. This provision shall not preclude the Executive’s participation in any Company retirement plan, compensation plan, deferred compensation plan, excess benefit plan, any group life insurance or survivor benefit plan made generally available by the Company to all employees. This provision shall not preclude the payment of survivor benefits which are earned and payable under any Company retirement plan.
D. SURVIVOR BENEFITS
     1. Death of Executive While Employed. In the event of the death of an Executive while employed by the Company and except as provided in Sections D.3 and D.4 below, the benefit provided by the Plan and payable to the Executive’s Beneficiary as soon as practicable thereafter shall be a lump sum equal to the lesser of (a) three times the Annual Base Salary of the Executive at the time of death, or (b) $2,000,000. The benefit shall be provided to the Executive’s Beneficiary either through the proceeds of life insurance owned by the Company on the Executive’s life or as a lump sum cash payment from the general assets of the Company. In the later case, the benefit amount shall be increased by multiplying it by the Tax Factor. The application of this Section D.1 is illustrated in Appendix I to the Plan.
     2. Death of Executive After Approved Retirement. In the event of the death of an Executive after his or her Approved Retirement and except as provided in Sections D.3 and D.4 below, the benefit provided by the Plan and payable to the Executive’s Beneficiary as soon as practicable thereafter shall be a lump sum equal to the lesser of (a) 1.5 times the Annual Base Salary of the Executive at retirement, and (b)(i) $500,000 for an Executive who retires on or before January 1, 1997, or (ii) $1,000,000 for an Executive who retires after January 1, 1997. The benefit shall be provided to the Executive’s Beneficiary either through the proceeds of life insurance owned by the Company on the Executive’s life or as a lump sum cash payment from the general assets of the Company. In the latter case, the benefit amount shall be increased by multiplying it by the Tax Factor.
     3. Limitations on Benefits. No survivor benefits shall be paid under this Section D in the following circumstances:
          a. The Administrator shall determine in his or her discretion that Executive has provided false or misleading information regarding Executive’s health or medical history that materially adversely affects the Company, or
          b. The Administrator shall determine in his or her discretion that Executive has committed suicide.

2


 

     For purposes of this Section D.3, the Administrator in his or her discretion may waive in writing the foregoing limitations in whole or in part, and all determinations by the Administrator shall be final.
     4. Executives Removed from Participation. Except as otherwise approved by the Administrator in writing and at his or her sole discretion, no survivor benefits shall be paid under this Section D to any Beneficiary of an Executive (i) who has elected not to participate under Section C.2, (ii) who has been removed from Plan participation prior to his or her death, or (iii) subject to Section E below, with respect to whom the Plan has been terminated prior to his or her death.
     5. Designation of Beneficiary. A Participant may designate any person(s) or any entity as his or her Beneficiary. Designation shall be in writing and shall become effective only when filed with the Administrator. Such filing must occur before the Participant’s death. A Participant may change the Beneficiary, from time to time, by filing a new written designation with the Administrator. Effective January 1, 2003, if the Participant fails to effectively designate a Beneficiary in accordance with the Administrator’s procedures or the person designated by the Participant is not living at the time the distribution is to be made, then the Participant’s Beneficiary shall be the Participant’s surviving spouse, if any, or, if there is no surviving spouse, the Participant’s surviving children, if any, in equal shares, or if there are no surviving children, his or her estate.
E.   TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT OTHER THAN ON APPROVED RETIREMENT OR DEATH
     1. Basic Rule.
          a. In the event of the death of an Executive after his or her termination of employment with the Company other than on Approved Retirement and except as provided in Section E.2 below, the Company shall pay Executive’s Beneficiary a lump sum equal to (i) an amount calculated using the formula in Section D.2 above, subject to the limitations of Section D.3 above, (ii) multiplied by the Executive’s Pro Rata Percentage, and (iii) reduced by the amount provided in Section E.1.c below. Except as otherwise approved by the Administrator in writing and at his or her sole discretion, final Annual Base Salary shall be determined as of the date of the Executive’s termination of employment, for purposes of this Section E.1.a. The application of this Section E. 1.a is illustrated in Appendix II to the Plan.
          b. In the event of the death of an Executive after the Executive has been removed from Plan participation in accordance with Section C.4 (“removal”) or with respect to whom the Plan has been terminated in accordance with Section E (“Plan termination”) prior to his or her termination of employment, and except as provided in Section E.2 below, the Company shall pay Executive’s Beneficiary a sum equal to the amount calculated as provided in Section E.1.a above, but treating the Executive’s date of “removal” or the date of the “Plan termination”, whichever is applicable, as his or her date of termination of employment for purposes of calculating his or her Pro Rata Percentage and his or her final Annual Base Salary.

3


 

          c. Any amount determined under Section E.1.a or Section E.1.b shall be reduced by any death or survivor benefit (other than a retirement benefit paid under a tax qualified retirement plan) payable on account of service rendered by the Executive to another employer after his or her termination of employment with the Company.
     2. Limitations on Benefits. No benefits shall be paid under Section E in the following circumstances:
          a. The Executive is terminated for Cause, or
          b. The Executive has terminated his or her employment in violation of his or her Employment Agreement, if any; termination is in violation of an Employment Agreement if termination occurs before the end of the term of the Employment Agreement and is not allowed by the Employment Agreement (e.g., for “good reason”), or
          c. The Executive has not completed five or more years of participation (whether or not consecutive) in this Plan and its predecessors, the McKesson Corporation 1984 Executive Benefit Plan and the McKesson Corporation 1984 Management Benefit Plan; an Executive who would have completed five or more years (i) if his or her employment was not terminated by the Company in violation of his or her Employment Agreement or (ii) if his or her employment was not terminated for “good reason” under such Agreement, shall be treated as having such years of participation.
     3. Pro Rata Percentage. An Executive’s Pro Rata Percentage is the higher of the following two percentages (but not exceeding 100%): the first percentage is determined by dividing the number of the Executive’s whole months of employment with the Company by the number of whole months from the date that the Executive was first hired by the Company to the date that he will reach age 65, and multiplied by 100. The second percentage is determined by multiplying 4.44% by the number of his or her whole and partial years of completed employment with the Company.
     4. Periods of Employment. For purposes of determining employment with the Company, periods that would be disregarded under the Retirement Plan on account of breaks in service shall be disregarded under this Section E.
     5. Other Agreements. If an Executive’s Employment Agreement provides for higher survivor benefits than provided under this Section E, such higher benefit shall be paid.
     6. Forfeiture on Other Terminations. Except as provided in this Section E, and as provided elsewhere in this Plan with respect to the death of an Executive, on the death of the Executive, an Executive or his or her Beneficiary shall not be entitled to any additional benefits under this Plan, all obligations of the Company to the Executive and his or her Beneficiary under this Plan shall cease, and the Company shall have no further liability to the Executive or any other person under this Plan.

F. SPECIAL FORFEITURE RULES
     Any other provisions of this Plan to the contrary notwithstanding, if the Compensation Committee determines that any Executive engaged in any of the actions described in F.2 below, the consequence set forth in F.1 below shall result.
     1. Forfeiture of Benefits. To the extent that the benefit that otherwise would be payable under the Plan upon the death of the Executive exceeds the benefit, if any, that would have been payable if the Executive had died on November 1, 1993, such excess portion shall be forfeited and shall not be payable under this Plan. In no event shall the amount payable under the Plan with respect to any Executive who was a participant in the Plan on October 27, 1993 be less than the amount, if any, determined pursuant to Section J.
     2. Events Resulting in Forfeiture. The consequence described in F.1 above shall apply if the Executive, either before or after termination of employment with the Company:
          a. Accepts a position as a consultant to or an employee of a business enterprise that is in direct competition with any line of business engaged in by the Company at the time of the termination of the Executive’s employment.
          b. Discloses to others, or takes or uses for the Executive’s own purpose or the purpose of others, any trade secrets, confidential information, knowledge, data or know-how belonging to the Company and obtained by the Executive during the term of the Executive’s employment, whether or not they are the Executive’s work product. Examples of such confidential information or trade secrets include (but are not limited to) customer lists, supplier lists, pricing and cost data, computer programs, delivery routes, advertising plans, wage and salary data, financial information, research and development plans, processes, equipment, product information and all other types and categories of information as to which the Executive knows or has reason to know that the Company intends or expects secrecy to be maintained.
          c. Fails to promptly return all documents and other tangible items belonging to the Company in the Executive’s possession or control, including all complete or partial copies, recordings, abstracts, notes or reproductions of any kind made from or about such documents or information contained therein, upon termination of employment, whether pursuant to an Approved Retirement or otherwise.
          d. Fails to provide the Company with at least 30 days’ written notice prior to directly or indirectly engaging in, becoming employed by, or rendering services, advice or assistance to any business in competition with the Company or any of its subsidiaries. As used herein, “business in competition” means any person, organization or enterprise which is engaged in or is about to become engaged in any line of business engaged in by the Company at the time of the termination of the Executive’s employment with the Company.
          e. Fails to inform any new employer, before accepting employment, of the terms of this section and of the Executive’s continuing obligation to maintain the confidentiality of the trade secrets and other confidential information belonging to the Company and obtained by the Executive during the term of the Executive’s employment with the Company.

5


 

          f. Induces or attempts to induce, directly or indirectly, any of the Company’s customers, employees, representatives or consultants to terminate, discontinue or cease working with or for the Company, or to breach any contract with the Company, in order to work with or for, or enter into a contract with, the Executive or any third party.
          g. Engages in conduct which is not in good faith and which disrupts, damages, impairs or interferes with the business, reputation or employees of the Company.
     The Compensation Committee shall determine in its sole discretion whether the Executive has engaged in any of the acts set forth in Sections F.2.a through F.2.g above, and its determination shall be conclusive and binding on all interested persons.
     Any provision of this Section which is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable shall be construed or limited in a manner that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to the business objectives intended by such invalid or unenforceable provision, without invalidating or rendering unenforceable the remaining provisions of this Section.
G. SOURCE OF PAYMENT
     Amounts paid under Section D of this Plan may be paid from insurance policy proceeds on the life of the Executive or from the general funds of the Company, and each Executive and his or her Beneficiary shall be no more than an unsecured general creditor of the Company with no special or prior right to any assets of the Company for payment of any obligations hereunder. Nothing contained in this Plan shall be deemed to create a trust of any kind for the benefit of any Executive or Beneficiary, or create any fiduciary relationship between the Company and any Executive or Beneficiary with respect to any assets of the Company.
H. MISCELLANEOUS
     1. Withholding. The Executive or any Beneficiary shall make appropriate arrangements with the Company for the satisfaction of any federal, state or local income tax withholding requirements and social security or other employee tax requirements applicable to the provision of benefits under this Plan. If no such arrangements are made, the Company may provide, at its discretion, for such withholding and tax payments as may be required.
     2. No Assignment. The benefits provided under this Plan and a Beneficiary’s rights may not be alienated, assigned, transferred, pledged, or hypothecated by any person, at any time, unless such benefits are payable from the proceeds of an insurance policy. Such benefits shall be exempt from the claims of creditors or other claimants and from all orders, decrees, levies, garnishments, or executions to the fullest extent allowed by law.
     3. Applicable Law and Severability. The Plan hereby created shall be construed, administered and governed in all respects in accordance with ERISA and the laws of the State of California to the extent that the latter are not preempted by ERISA. If any provision of this instrument shall be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions hereunder shall continue to be effective. If any provision this amendment and restatement is deemed to be a “material modification” of this Plan which would cause

6


 

amounts deferred or accrued under this Plan prior to 2005 to be subject to the deferred compensation provisions of section 885 of the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004, if such legislation is enacted into law, such provision shall be null, void and without effect retroactive to October 28, 2004.
I.   ADMINISTRATION OF THE PLAN
     1. In General. The Plan shall be administered by the Executive Vice President, Human Resources of McKesson. If the Executive Vice President, Human Resources is an Executive participating in the Plan, then any discretionary action he or she takes as Administrator which directly affects him or her as Executive shall be specifically approved by the Compensation Committee. The Administrator shall have the ultimate responsibility to interpret the Plan and shall adopt such rules and regulations for carrying out the Plan as it may deem necessary or appropriate. Decisions of the Administrator shall be final and binding on all parties who have an interest in the Plan.
     2. Elections and Notices. All elections and notices made by an Executive under this Plan shall be in writing and filed with the Administrator.
     3. Action By Board and Compensation Committee. The Board and Compensation Committee may act under this Plan in accordance with their normal procedures and practice, including, but not limited to, delegation of their authority to act under this Plan.
J.   AMENDMENT OR TERMINATION OF THE PLAN
     The Board may at any time amend, alter, modify or terminate the Plan; the Compensation Committee may at any time amend, alter or modify the Plan. Such action shall not reduce the benefits provided under this Plan with respect to any Executive whose employment has terminated before such action. Also, such action shall not reduce the benefits provided under this Plan with respect to any Executive who is participating in the Plan at the time of such action below the amount provided in Section E, treating for purposes of Section E the amendment, alteration, modification, or termination which adversely affects the Executive as though it were a termination of employment. An illustration of the calculation of benefits in the event of termination of the Plan under this Section J is attached as Appendix III.
K.   CLAIMS AND APPEALS
     1. Informal Resolution of Questions. Any Participant or Beneficiary who has questions or concerns about his or her benefits under the Plan is encouraged to communicate with the Human Resources Department of McKesson. If this discussion does not give the Participant or Beneficiary satisfactory results, a formal claim for benefits may be made in accordance with the procedures of this Section K.
     2. Formal Benefits Claim — Review by Executive Vice President, Human Resources. A Participant or Beneficiary may make a written request for review of any matter concerning his or her benefits under this Plan.

          c.

L.   DEFINITIONS
     For the purposes of the Plan, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:

     3. “Approved Retirement” shall mean (i) any termination of employment with the Company after attainment of age 62; (ii) any involuntary termination of employment after both attainment of age 55 and completion of 15 Years of Service; or (iii) any other termination of employment prior to (i) or (ii) above (but not earlier than the Executive’s attainment of age 55 and completion of five Years of Service) with the approval of the Compensation Committee. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if an Executive’s written employment agreement so requires or if the Board so decides, the Board may, in its sole discretion, grant an Approved Retirement at any earlier termination of employment.
     Notwithstanding the foregoing, “Approved Retirement” shall not include any termination for “cause,” which shall be determined as provided in Section E.2.a hereof.
     4. “Beneficiary” shall mean the beneficiary or beneficiaries entitled to death benefits under this Plan, as designated by Executive or otherwise provided in Section D.S.
     5. “Board” shall mean the Board of Directors of McKesson.

McKESSON CORPORATION
EXECUTIVE SURVIVOR BENEFITS PLAN
Appendix II
This Appendix illustrates the calculation of benefits under Section E.1.a of the Plan.
An Executive is hired at age 50, his or her employment is terminated at age 60 and after January 1, 1997, and he otherwise qualifies for a benefit under Section E. On the death of this Executive, a benefit will be paid to his or her Beneficiary equal to the Pro Rata Percentage (see calculation below) times 1-1/2 times the Executive’s final Annual Base Salary at the date of his or her termination of employment (or $1 million, if smaller) multiplied by the Tax Factor, and reduced by any death or survivor benefit payable to a beneficiary of the Executive on account of service rendered to another employer as provided in Section E.1.c. If the above Executive’s Annual Base Salary was $300,000 at the date of his or her termination of employment and the Tax Factor at the date the benefit is paid is 1.543, the benefit payable to his or her Beneficiary would be $462,900, calculated as follows:
The Executive’s Pro Rata Percentage is 66-2/3%, calculated as follows:
The greater of (a) number of whole months of employment divided by total whole months from date of hire to age 65, or (b) 4.44% times whole and partial years of completed employment, or 120 months/180 months = 66-2/3%, which is greater than 4.44% x 10 years = 44.4%.
The Executive’s benefit is:
Pro Rata Percentage x [1-1/2 of Annual Base Salary (1-1/2 x $300,000 = $450,000) or $1 million, if smaller] x Tax Factor
66-2/3% x $450,000 x 1.543 = $462,900.

Greater of (a) whole months of service divided by total whole months from hire to age 65 or (b) 4.44% times whole and partial years of service, a greater of 60% (180/300 = 60%) or 66-2/3% (4.44 x 15 years of service)
     Benefit: $452,900
66-2/3% x (1-1/2 of $300,000, or $1 million if smaller) x “Tax Factor” (1.543)
(66% x $450,000) x 1.543 =
$300,000 x 1.543 =
$462,900
