The definition of “Constructive Termination” for the purpose of this Participation Notice is hereby defined as follows:

Constructive Termination” means the Participant resigns (resulting in a Separation from Service) because one of the following events or actions is undertaken without the Participant’s written consent:

(i)        a reduction of more than 20% or more in the Participant’s annual base salary (unless pursuant to a salary reduction program applicable to all similarly situated employees);

(ii)       a non-temporary relocation of the Participant’s business office to a location that increases the Participant’s one-way commute by more than 50 miles from the primary location at which the Participant performed duties at the time of Constructive Termination;


(iii)      a material breach by the Company or any successor entity of the Plan or any employment agreement between the Company and the Participant; or

(iv)      a material reduction of Participant’s duties, authority or responsibilities relative to Participant’s duties, authority or responsibilities as in effect immediately prior to such reduction, provided that such a “reduction” will not be deemed to occur if Participant’s duties, authority and responsibilities with respect to the successor subsidiary or division of the parent entity following a Change in Control are substantially similar to Participant’s duties, authority and responsibilities with respect to the business of the Company immediately prior to the Change in Control.

An event or action will not give the Participant grounds for Constructive Termination unless (A) the Participant gives the Company written notice within 30 days after the initial existence of the event or action that the Participant intends to resign in a Constructive Termination due to such event or action; (B) the event or action is not reasonably cured by the Company within 30 days after the Company receives written notice from the Participant; and (C) the Participant’s Separation from Service occurs within 90 days after the end of the cure period.

In addition to other terms defined in the Plan document, the definitions on Attachment A to this Participation Notice are used to define the benefits to which you are entitled under the Plan.

By accepting participation in the Plan, you represent that you have either consulted your personal tax or financial planning advisor about the tax consequences of your participation in the Plan, or you have knowingly declined to do so.

Please return to the Company a copy of this Participation Notice signed by you and retain a copy of this Participation Notice, along with the Plan document, for your records.
