                  accident, disability, deferred compensation or savings plans
                  in which Executive was participating immediately prior to the

                  United States, the taking of any action by the Company that
                  would directly or indirectly materially reduce any of the
                  following expatriate benefits and compensation enjoyed by
                  Executive immediately prior to the Change in Control: housing,
                  utilities expense, goods and services differential, foreign

         waiver of rights with respect to, any circumstance constituting Good
         Reason hereunder. The fact that Executive may be eligible for
         Retirement shall not prevent him from resigning for Good Reason

         faith and without reasonable belief that his action or omission was in
         the best interest of the Company.

                  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Executive shall not be deemed
         to have been terminated for Cause unless and until there shall have

         only if the break in service is less than five (5) years.

         2.       Severance Benefits.

                  (a) Eligibility. Except as otherwise provided in this Section

                                       5


         Company at any time during the two-year period following a Change in
         Control for reasons other than Cause, or if Executive voluntarily

         upon the Company's receipt of an effective Waiver and Release.
         Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Executive shall not be

                           (i)      voluntarily terminates his employment with 
                   the Company other than for Good Reason;

                           (ii)     has his employment terminated by the Company

                           (iii)    terminates employment by reason of his death
                   or Total Disability.

                           Any termination by the Company for Cause, or by

         applicable, set forth in reasonable detail the facts and circumstances
         claimed to provide a basis for termination of Executive's employment
         under the provision so indicated and (iii) specify the termination
         date. The failure by Executive or the Company to set forth in the
         notice of termination any fact or circumstance which contributes to a
         showing of Good Reason or Cause shall not waive any right of Executive
         or the Company, respectively, hereunder or preclude Executive or the
         Company, respectively, from asserting such fact or circumstance in
         enforcing Executive's or the Company's rights hereunder.

                  (b) Severance Benefits. If Executive meets the eligibility
         requirements of Section 2(a) hereof, he shall be entitled to a cash
         severance benefit in an amount equal to three (3) times his Annual

         retirees pursuant to the terms of the Group Health Plan and the Group
         Life Insurance Plan, or other plans providing such benefits to
         similarly situated employees who retire, he shall be entitled to the
         benefits set forth in this Section 2(c).

                           (i) Executive shall be eligible to participate in the

                  of five (5) years, beginning on the first day of the first
                  month following Executive's Termination Date unless otherwise
                  specifically provided under such plan, upon payment of both
                  the Company's and his monthly premium under such plan. If
                  Executive elects to receive this extended medical coverage, he
                  shall also be entitled to elect coverage under the Group

                  Health Plan for his dependents who were participating in the
                  Group Health Plan on Executive's Termination Date (and for

                  provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and
                  Accountability Act of 1996) for the duration of Executive's
                  extended medical coverage under this Section 2(c)(i) to the
                  extent such dependents remain eligible for dependent coverage
                  under the terms of the Group Health Plan.

                                    (A) The extended medical coverage afforded
                           to Executive pursuant to Section 2(c)(i), as well as
                           the premiums to be paid by Executive in connection
                           with such coverage shall be determined in accordance
                           with the terms of the Group Health Plan and shall be
                           subject to any changes in the terms and conditions of
                           the Group Health Plan as well as any future increases
                           in premiums under the Group Health Plan. The premiums
                           to be paid by Executive in connection with this
                           extended coverage shall be due on the first day of
                           each month; provided, however, that if he fails to
                           pay his premium within thirty (30) days of its due
                           date, such extended coverage shall be terminated.

                                    (B) Any Group Health Plan coverage provided
                           under Section 2(c)(i) shall be in lieu of and not in
                           addition to any COBRA Coverage which Executive or his
                           dependent may elect. Executive or his dependents must
                           waive COBRA coverage under the Group Health Plan as a
                           condition precedent to receiving extended medical
                           coverage pursuant to this Section 2(c). In the event
                           that Executive or his dependents become eligible to
                           be covered, by virtue of re-employment or otherwise,
                           by any employer-sponsored group health plan or is
                           eligible for coverage under any government-sponsored
                           health plan during the above period, coverage under
                           the Company's Group Health Plan available to
                           Executive or his dependents by virtue of the
                           provisions of Section 2(c)(i) shall terminate, except
                           as may otherwise be required by law, and shall not be
                           renewed.

                           (ii) Regardless of whether Executive elects the
                  extended coverage described in Section 2(c)(i) hereof, he
                  shall be entitled to receive cash in an amount equal to the
                  Company's and Executive's cost of premiums for three (3) years
                  of coverage under the Group Health Plan and Group Life
                  Insurance Plan in accordance with the terms of such plans as
                  of the date of the Change in Control.

                  (d) Incentive Plans. If Executive meets the eligibility
         requirements of Section 2(a) hereof, he shall be entitled to the
         benefits under the Company's incentive plans as provided under the
         Change in Control Benefit Plan Determination Policy for "Severed
         Employees," in addition to any other benefits to which he would
         otherwise be entitled under such Policy.

                  (e) Payment of Benefits. The amounts due under Section 2(b)
         and 2(c)(ii) of this Agreement shall be paid in one (1) lump sum
         payment as soon as administratively practicable following the later of:
         (i) Executive's Termination Date, or (ii) upon Executive's tender of an
         effective Waiver and Release to the Company and the expiration of any
         applicable revocation period for such waiver. In the event of a dispute
         with respect to liability or amount of any benefit due hereunder, an
         effective Waiver and Release shall be tendered at the time of final
         resolution of any such dispute when payment is tendered by the Company.

                                       7


         If the Company fails or refuses to make payments under the Agreement,
         Executive may have the right to obtain payment by Mirant pursuant to
         the terms of the "Guarantee Agreement Concerning Mirant Services LLC
         Compensation and Benefit Arrangements" entered into by the Company and
         Mirant. Executive's right to payment is not increased as a result of
         this Guarantee. He has the same right to payment from Mirant as he
         would have from the Company. Any demand to enforce this Guarantee
         should be made in writing and should reasonably and briefly specify the
         manner and the amount the Company has failed to pay. Such writing given
         by personal delivery or mail shall be effective upon actual receipt.
         Any writing given by telegram or telecopier shall be effective upon
         actual receipt if received during Mirant's normal business hours, or at
         the beginning of the next business day after receipt, if not received
         during Mirant's normal business hours. All arrivals by telegram or
         telecopier shall be confirmed promptly after transmission in writing by
         certified mail or personal delivery.

                  (f) Benefits in the Event of Death. In the event of
         Executive's death prior to the payment of all amounts due under this
         Agreement, Executive's estate shall be entitled to receive as due any
         amounts not yet paid under this Agreement upon the tender by the
         executor or administrator of the estate of an effective Waiver and
         Release.

                  (g) Executive Outplacement Services. Executive shall be 
         eligible to participate in the Executive Outplacement Program, which 
         program shall not be less than six (6) months duration measured from 
         Executive's Termination Date.

         3.       Possible Additional Payments by the Company.
         
                  (a) Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding
         and except as set forth below, in the event it shall be determined that
         any payment or distribution in the nature of compensation (within the
         meaning of Section 280G(b)(2) of the Code) by the Company to or for the
         benefit of Executive (whether paid or payable or distributed or
         distributable pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or otherwise, but
         determined without regard to any additional payments required under
         this Section 3) (a "Payment") would be subject to the excise tax
         imposed by Section 4999 of the Code or any interest or penalties are
         incurred by Executive with respect to such excise tax (such excise tax,
         together with any such interest and penalties, are hereinafter
         collectively referred to as the "Excise Tax"), then the Company shall
         pay to Executive an additional payment (a "Gross-Up Payment") in an
         amount such that, after payment by Executive of all taxes (including
         any interest or penalties imposed with respect to such taxes),
         including, without limitation, any income taxes (and any interest and
         penalties imposed with respect thereto) and Excise Tax imposed upon the
         Gross-Up Payment, Executive retains an amount of the Gross-Up Payment
         equal to the Excise Tax imposed upon the Payments.

                  Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 3(a),
         if the Parachute Value (as defined below) of all Payments does not
         exceed 110% of Executive's Safe Harbor Amount (as defined below), then
         the Company shall not pay Executive a Gross-Up Payment, and the

                                       8


         Payments due under this Agreement shall be reduced so that the
         Parachute Value of all Payments, in the aggregate, equals the Safe
         Harbor Amount; provided, that if even after all Payments due under this
         Agreement are reduced to zero, the Parachute Value of all Payments
         would still exceed the Safe Harbor Amount, then no reduction of any
         Payments shall be made and the Gross -Up Payment shall be made. The
         reduction of the Payments due hereunder, if applicable, shall be made
         by first reducing the Severance Payments under Section 2(b), unless an
         alternative method of reduction is elected by Executive, and in any
         event shall be made in such a manner as to maximize the economic
         present value of all Payments actually made to Executive, determined by
         the accounting firm serving as the Company's auditors immediately prior
         to the change of control (the "Accounting Firm") as of the date of the
         change of control for purposes of Section 280G of the Code using the
         discount rate required by Section 280G(d)(4) of the Code. For purposes
         of this Section 3, the "Parachute Value" of a Payment means the present
         value as of the date of the change of control for purposes of Section
         280G of the Code of the portion of such Payment that constitutes a
         "parachute payment" under Section 280G(b)(2) of the Code, as determined
         by the Accounting Firm for purposes of determining whether and to what
         extent the Excise Tax will apply to such Payment. For purposes of this
         Section 3, Executive's "Safe Harbor Amount" means one dollar less than
         three times Executive's "base amount" within the meaning of Section
         280G(b)(3) of the Code.

                  (b) Subject to the provisions of Section 3(c), all
         determinations required to be made under this Section 3, including
         whether and when a Gross-Up Payment is required and the amount of such
         Gross-Up Payment, whether and in what manner any Payments are to be
         reduced pursuant to the second paragraph of Section 3(a), and the
         assumptions to be used in arriving at such determinations, shall be
         made by the Accounting Firm, and shall be binding on the Company and
         Executive, except to the extent the Internal Revenue Service or a court
         of competent jurisdiction makes a final and binding determination
         inconsistent therewith. The Accounting Firm shall provide detailed
         supporting calculations both to the Company and Executive within 15
         business days after receiving notice from Executive that there has been
         a Payment, or such earlier time as is requested by the Company. In the
         event that the Accounting Firm is serving as accountant or auditor for
         the individual, entity or group effecting the Change in Control,
         Executive shall appoint another nationally recognized accounting firm
         to make the determinations required hereunder (which accounting firm
         shall then be referred to as the Accounting Firm hereunder). All fees
         and expenses of the Accounting Firm shall be borne solely by the
         Company. Any Gross-Up Payment that becomes due pursuant to this Section
         3 shall be paid by the Company to Executive within the later of (i)
         five business days prior to the due date for the payment of the Excise
         Tax or (ii) five days after the receipt of the Accounting Firm's
         determination. As a result of the uncertainty in the application of
         Section 4999 of the Code at the time of the initial determination by
         the Accounting Firm hereunder, it is possible that Gross-Up Payments
         which will not have been made by the Company should have been made
         ("Underpayment"), consistent with the calculations required to be made
         hereunder. In the event that the Accounting Firm determines that there
         has been an Underpayment or the Company exhausts its remedies pursuant

                                       9


         to Section 3(c) and Executive thereafter is required to make a payment
         of any Excise Tax, the Accounting Firm shall determine the amount of
         the Underpayment that has occurred and any such Underpayment shall be
         promptly paid by the Company to or for the benefit of Executive.

                  (c) Executive shall notify the Company in writing of any claim
         by the Internal Revenue Service that, if successful, would require the
         payment by the Company of a Gross-Up Payment (or an additional Gross-Up
         Payment). Such notification shall be given as soon as practicable but
         no later than ten business days after Executive is informed in writing
         of such claim. Executive shall apprise the Company of the nature of
         such claim and the date on which such claim is requested to be paid.
         Executive shall not pay such claim prior to the expiration of the
         30-day period following the date on which it gives such notice to the
         Company (or such shorter period ending on the date that any payment of
         taxes with respect to such claim is due). If the Company notifies
         Executive in writing prior to the expiration of such period that it
         desires to contest such claim, Executive shall:

                           (i)  give the Company any information reasonably 
                  requested by the Company relating to such claim,

                           (ii) take such action in connection with contesting
                  such claim as the Company shall reasonably request in writing
                  from time to time, including, without limitation, accepting
                  legal representation with respect to such claim by an attorney
                  reasonably selected by the Company,

                           (iii)  cooperate with the Company in good faith in 
                  order effectively to contest such claim, and

                           (iv)  permit the Company to participate in any 
                  proceedings relating to such claim;

         provided, however, that the Company shall bear and pay directly all
         costs and expenses (including additional interest and penalties)
         incurred in connection with such contest and shall indemnify and hold
         Executive harmless, on an after-tax basis, for any Excise Tax or income
         tax (including interest and penalties with respect thereto) imposed as
         a result of such representation and payment of costs and expenses.
         Without limitation of the foregoing provisions of this Section 3(c),
         the Company shall control all proceedings taken in connection with such
         contest and, in its sole discretion, may pursue or forgo any and all
         administrative appeals, proceedings, hearings and conferences with the
         taxing authority in respect of such claim and may, in its sole
         discretion, either direct Executive to pay the tax claimed and sue for
         a refund or contest the claim in any permissible manner, and Executive
         agrees to prosecute such contest to a determination before any
         administrative tribunal, in a court of initial jurisdiction and in one
         or more appellate courts, as the Company shall determine; provided,
         however, that if the Company directs Executive to pay such claim and
         sue for a refund, the Company shall advance the amount of such payment
         to Executive, on an interest-free basis and shall indemnify and hold
         Executive harmless, on an after-tax basis, from any Excise Tax or
         income tax (including interest or penalties with respect thereto)
         imposed with respect to such advance or with respect to any imputed
         income with respect to such advance; and further provided that any

                                       10


         extension of the statute of limitations relating to payment of taxes
         for the taxable year of Executive with respect to which such contested
         amount is claimed to be due is limited solely to such contested amount.
         Furthermore, the Company's control of the contest shall be limited to
         issues with respect to which a Gross-Up Payment would be payable
         hereunder and Executive shall be entitled to settle or contest, as the
         case may be, any other issue raised by the Internal Revenue Service or
         any other taxing authority.

                  (d) If, at any time after receiving a Gross-Up Payment or an
         advance pursuant to Section 3(c), Executive receives any refund of the
         associated Excise Tax, Executive shall (subject to the Company's having
         complied with the requirements of Section 3(c), if applicable) promptly
         pay to the Company the amount of such refund (together with any
         interest paid or credited thereon net of all taxes applicable thereto).
         If, after Executive receives an advance by the Company pursuant to
         Section 3(c), a determination is made that Executive is not entitled to
         any refund with respect to such claim and the Company does not notify
         Executive in writing of its intent to contest such denial of refund
         prior to the expiration of 30 days after such determination, then such
         advance shall be forgiven and shall not be required to be repaid, and
         the amount of any Gross-Up Payment owed to Executive shall be reduced
         (but not below zero) by the amount of such advance.

                  (e) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 3, the
         Company may, in its sole discretion, withhold and pay over to the
         Internal Revenue Service or any other applicable taxing authority, for
         the benefit of Executive, all or any portion of any Gross-Up Payment,
         and Executive hereby consents to such withholding.

         4. Transfer of Employment. In the event that Executive's employment by
the Company is terminated during the two-year period following a Change in
Control and Executive accepts employment by Mirant, a Mirant Subsidiary, or any
employer that succeeds to all or substantially all of the assets of Mirant or
any Mirant Subsidiary, the Company shall assign this Agreement to Mirant, such
Mirant Subsidiary, or successor employer, Mirant shall accept such assignment or
cause such Mirant Subsidiary or successor employer to accept such assignment,
and such assignee shall become the "Company" for all purposes hereunder.

         5. No Mitigation. If Executive is otherwise eligible to receive
benefits under Section 2 of this Agreement, he shall have no duty or obligation
to seek other employment following his Termination Date and, except as otherwise
provided in Section 2(c)(i)(B) hereof, the amounts due Executive hereunder shall
not be reduced or suspended if Executive accepts such subsequent employment.

         6.       Arbitration.

                  (a) Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or
         relating to the Company's obligations to pay severance benefits under
         this Agreement, or the breach thereof, shall be settled and resolved
         solely by arbitration in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration
         Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") except as

                                       11


         otherwise provided herein. The arbitration shall be the sole and
         exclusive forum for resolution of any such claim for severance benefits
         and the arbitrators' award shall be final and binding. Any such claim
         for arbitration must be brought within one (1) year after Executive's
         Termination Date. The provisions of this Section 6 are not intended to
         apply to any other disputes, claims or controversies arising out of or
         relating to Executive's employment by the Company or the termination
         thereof.

                  (b) Arbitration shall be initiated by serving a written notice
         of demand for arbitration to Executive, in the case of the Company, or
         to the Board, in the case of Executive.

                  (c) The arbitration shall be held in Atlanta, Georgia. The
         arbitrators shall apply the law of the State of Georgia, to the extent
         not preempted by federal law, excluding any law which would require the
         application of the law of another state.

                  (d) The parties shall appoint arbitrators within fifteen (15)
         business days following service of the demand for arbitration. The
         number of arbitrators shall be three. One arbitrator shall be appointed
         by Executive, one arbitrator shall be appointed by the Company, and the
         two arbitrators shall appoint a third. If the arbitrators cannot agree
         on a third arbitrator within thirty (30) business days after the
         service of demand for arbitration, the third arbitrator shall be
         selected by the AAA.

                  (e) The arbitration filing fee shall be paid by Executive. All
         other costs of arbitration shall be borne equally by Executive and the
         Company, provided, however, that the Company shall reimburse Executive
         for such fees and costs, plus reasonable legal fees actually incurred
         by Executive, in the event any material issue in such dispute is
         finally resolved in Executive's favor.

                  (f) The parties agree that they will faithfully observe the
         rules that govern any arbitration between them, they will abide by and
         perform any award rendered by the arbitrators in any such arbitration,
         including any award of injunctive relief, and a judgment of a court
         having jurisdiction may be entered upon an award.

                  (g) The parties agree that nothing in this Section 6 is
         intended to preclude any court having jurisdiction from issuing and
         enforcing in any lawful manner such temporary restraining orders,
         preliminary injunctions, and other interim measures of relief as may be
         necessary to prevent harm to a party's interests or as otherwise may be
         appropriate pending the conclusion of arbitration proceedings pursuant
         to this Agreement regardless of whether an arbitration proceeding under
         this Section 6 has begun. The parties further agree that nothing herein
         shall prevent any court from entering and enforcing in any lawful
         manner such judgments for permanent equitable relief as may be
         necessary to prevent harm to a party's interests or as otherwise may be
         appropriate following the issuance of arbitral awards pursuant to this
         Agreement.

                                       12


         7.       Miscellaneous.
                  -------------

                  (a) Funding of Benefits. Unless the Board shall in its
         discretion determine otherwise, the benefits payable to Executive under
         this Agreement shall not be funded in any manner and shall be paid by
         the Company out of its general assets, which assets are subject to the
         claims of the Company's creditors.

                  (b) Withholding. There shall be deducted from the payment of
         any benefit due under this Agreement the amount of any tax required by
         any governmental authority to be withheld and paid over by the Company
         to such governmental authority for the account of Executive.

                  (c) Assignment. Executive shall have no rights to sell,
         assign, transfer, encumber, or otherwise convey the right to receive
         the payment of any benefit due hereunder, which payment and the rights
         thereto are expressly declared to be nonassignable and nontransferable.
         Any attempt to do so shall be null and void and of no effect.

                  (d) Amendment and Termination. The Agreement may be amended or
         terminated  only by a writing  executed by the parties.

                  (e) Construction. This Agreement shall be construed in
         accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of Georgia, to
         the extent not preempted by federal law, disregarding any provision of
         law which would require the application of the law of another state.

                  (f) Pooling Accounting. Notwithstanding anything to the
         contrary herein, if, but for any provision of this Agreement, a Change
         in Control transaction would otherwise be accounted for as a
         pooling-of-interests under APB No.16 ("Pooling Accounting") (after
         giving effect to any and all other facts and circumstances affecting
         whether such Change in Control transaction would use Pooling
         Accounting,), such provision or provisions of this Agreement which
         would otherwise cause the Change in Control transaction to be
         ineligible for Pooling Accounting shall be void and ineffective in such
         a manner and to the extent that by eliminating such provision or
         provisions of this Agreement, Pooling Accounting would be available for
         such Change in Control transaction.

                  (g) Notices. All notices, requests, demands and other
         communications required or permitted hereunder shall be in writing and
         shall be deemed to have been duly given if delivered or three days
         after mailing if mailed, first class, certified mail, postage prepaid:

                          WAIVER AND RELEASE AGREEMENT

         This Waiver and Release Agreement (the "Waiver and Release") is entered
into by and among Mirant Corporation ("Mirant"), Mirant Services, LLC (the
"Company") and __________________ ("Executive") this ________ day of ________,
20__.

         1. General Waiver and Release: For and in consideration of the
agreement of Mirant and the Company to provide Executive the severance benefits
described in that certain Change in Control Agreement, dated as of April 2,
2001, among Executive, Mirant and the Company (the "Agreement"), Executive, with
the intention of binding himself and all of his heirs, executors, administrators
and assigns, does hereby release, remise, acquit and forever discharge Mirant
and the Company, and all of their respective past and present officers,
directors, stockholders, employees, agents, parent corporations, predecessors,
subsidiaries, affiliates, estates, successors, assigns and attorneys
(hereinafter collectively referred to as "Released Parties") from any and all
claims, charges, actions, causes of action, sums of money due, suits, debts,
covenants, contracts, agreements, rights, damages, promises, demands or
liabilities (hereinafter collectively referred to as "Claims") whatsoever, in
law or in equity, whether known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, which
Executive, individually or as a member of any class, now has, owns or holds or
has at any time heretofore ever had, owned or held against the Released Parties
including, but not by way of limitation, Claims arising out of or in any way
connected with Executive's employment with the Company or any of the Released
Parties or the termination of any such employment relationship, including, but
not by way of limitation, Claims pursuant to federal, state or local statute,
regulation, ordinance or common-law for (i) employment discrimination; (ii)
wrongful discharge; (iii) breach of contract; (iv) tort actions of any type,
including those for intentional or negligent infliction of emotional harm; and
(v) unpaid benefits, wages, compensation, commissions, bonuses or incentive
payments of any type, except as follows:

                  A. those obligations of the Company and its affiliates under 
the  Agreement,  pursuant to which this Waiver and Release is being executed and
delivered; and

                  B. claims, if any, for Executive's accrued or vested benefits
under the retirement plans, savings plans, investment plans and employee welfare
benefit plans, if any, of the Released Parties (within the meaning of Section
3(1) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 ("ERISA")), as
amended; provided, however, that nothing herein is intended to or shall be
construed to require the Released Parties to institute or continue in effect any
particular plan or benefit sponsored by the Released Parties and the Company and
all other Released Parties hereby reserve the right to amend or terminate any
such plan or benefit at any time; and

                  C. any rights to indemnification or advancement of expenses to
which Executive may otherwise be entitled pursuant to the Articles of

                                       16


Incorporation or Bylaws of any of the Released Parties, or by contract or
applicable law, as a result of Executive's service as an officer or director of
any of the Released Parties.

         Executive further understands and agrees that he has knowingly
relinquished, waived and forever released any and all remedies arising out of
the aforesaid employment relationship or the termination thereof, including,
without limitation, claims for backpay, front pay, liquidated damages,
compensatory damages, general damages, special damages, punitive damages,
exemplary damages, costs, expenses and attorneys' fees.

         2. Waiver and Release of ADEA Claims: Without limiting the generality
of the foregoing, and also for and in consideration of the Company's agreement
to provide Executive Severance Benefits described in Article 3 of the Agreement,
Executive specifically acknowledges and agrees that he does hereby knowingly and
voluntarily release Mirant, the Company and all other Released Parties from any
and all claims arising under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, 29 U.S.C.
ss. 621, et seq. ("ADEA"), which Executive ever had or now has from the
beginning of time up to the date this Waiver and Release is executed, including,
but not by way of limitation, those ADEA Claims which are in any way connected
with any employment relationship or the termination of any employment
relationship which existed between the Company or any other Released Parties and
Executive. Executive also acknowledges that he has been provided with a notice,
as required by the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act of 1990, that contains
(i) information about the individuals covered under the Agreement, (ii) the
eligibility factors for participation in the Agreement, (iii) the time limits
applicable to the Agreement, (iv) the job titles and ages of the employees
designated to participate in the Agreement, (v) and the ages of the employees in
the same job classification who have not been designated to participate in the
Agreement. (See Attachment 1). Executive further acknowledges and agrees that he
has been advised to consult with an attorney prior to executing this Waiver and
Release and that he has been given forty-five (45) days to consider this Waiver
and Release prior to its execution. Executive agrees that in the event that he
executes this Waiver and Release prior to the expiration of the forty-five (45)
day period, he shall waive the balance of said period. Executive also
understands that he may revoke this Waiver and Release of ADEA Claims at any
time within seven (7) days following its execution and that, if Executive
revokes this Waiver and Release of ADEA Claims within such seven (7) day period,
it shall not be effective or enforceable and he will not receive the
above-described consideration or any payments provided for in the Agreement that
have not been paid.

         3. Covenant Not to Sue: Executive acknowledges and agrees that this
Waiver and Release may not be revoked at any time after the expiration of the
seven (7) day revocation period and that he will not institute any suit, action,
or proceeding, whether at law or equity, challenging the enforceability of this
Waiver and Release. Should Executive ever attempt to challenge the terms of this
Waiver and Release, attempt to obtain an order declaring this Waiver and Release
to be null and void, or institute litigation against any of the Released Parties
based upon a Claim other than an ADEA Claim which is covered by the terms of

                                       17


this Waiver and Release, Executive will as a condition precedent to such action
repay all monies paid to him under the terms of this Waiver and Release.
Furthermore, if Executive does not prevail in an action to challenge this Waiver
and Release, to obtain an order declaring this Waiver and Release to be null and
void, or in any action against any of the Released Parties based upon a Claim
other than an ADEA Claim which is covered by the Waiver and Release set forth
herein, Executive shall pay to the Company and/or the appropriate Released
Parties all their costs and attorneys' fees incurred in their defense of
Executive's action.

         Provided, however, that it is understood and agreed by the parties that
Executive shall not be required to repay the monies paid to him under the terms
of this Waiver and Release or pay the Company and/or the appropriate Released
Parties all their costs and attorneys' fees incurred in their defense of
Executive's action (except those attorneys' fees or costs specifically
authorized under federal law) in the event that Executive seeks to challenge his
Waiver and Release of Claims under the ADEA.

         4. Denial of Liability: Executive acknowledges and agrees that neither
the payment of Severance Benefits under the Agreement nor this Waiver and
Release is to be construed in any way as an admission of any liability
whatsoever by Mirant, the Company or any of the other Released Parties, by whom
liability is expressly denied.

         5. Agreement Not to Seek Further Relief: Executive acknowledges and
agrees that he has not, with respect to any transaction or state of facts
existing prior to the date of execution of this Waiver and Release, filed any
complaints, charges or lawsuits against any of the Released Parties with any
governmental agency or any court or tribunal, and that he will not do so at any
time hereafter. Executive further acknowledges and agrees that he hereby waives
any right to accept any relief or recovery, including costs and attorneys' fees,
that may arise from any charge or complaint before any federal, state or local
court or administrative agency against the Released Parties.

         6. Company Property: Executive agrees that he will not retain or
destroy, and will immediately return to the Company, any and all property of the
Company in his possession or subject to his control, including, but not limited
to, keys, credit and identification cards, personal items or equipment provided
for his use, customer files and information, all other files and documents
relating to the Company and its business, together with all written or recorded
materials, documents, computer disks, plans, records or notes or other papers
belonging to the Company. Executive further agrees not to make, distribute or
retain copies of any such information or property.

         7. Confidentiality Agreement: Executive acknowledges that the terms of
this Waiver and Release must be kept confidential. Accordingly, Executive agrees
not to disclose or publish to any person or entity, except as required by law or
as necessary to prepare tax returns, the terms and conditions or sums being paid
in connection with this Waiver and Release.

         8. Acknowledgment: Executive acknowledges that he has carefully read
and fully understands the terms of this Waiver and Release and the Agreement and
that this Waiver and Release is executed by Executive voluntarily and is not

                                       18


based upon any representations or statements of any kind made by Mirant, the
Company or any or the other Released Parties as to the merits, legal liabilities
or value of his claims. Executive further acknowledges that he has had a full
and reasonable opportunity to consider this Waiver Release and that he has not
been pressured or in any way coerced into executing this Waiver and Release.

         9. Choice of Laws:  This Waiver and Release and the rights and 
obligations of the parties hereto shall be governed and construed in accordance 
with the laws of the State of Georgia.

         10. Severability: With the exception of the waiver and releases
contained in Sections 1 and 2 above, if any provision of this Waiver and Release
is unenforceable or is held to be unenforceable, such provision shall be fully
severable, and this Waiver and Release and its terms shall be construed and
enforced as if such unenforceable provision had never comprised a part hereof,
the remaining provisions hereof shall remain in full force and effect, and the
court construing the provisions shall add as a part hereof a provision as
similar in terms and effect to such unenforceable provision as may be
enforceable, in lieu of the unenforceable provision. In the event that both of
the releases contained in Sections 1 and 2 above are unenforceable or are held
to be unenforceable, the parties understand and agree that the remaining
provisions of this Waiver and Release shall be rendered null and void and that
neither party shall have any further obligation under any provision of this
Waiver and Release.

         11.  Entire Agreement: This document contains all terms of the Waiver 
and Release and supersedes and invalidates any previous agreements or contracts 
regarding the same subject matter. No representations, inducements, promises or 
agreements, oral or otherwise, which are not embodied herein shall be of any 
force or effect.

         IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned acknowledges that he has read this
Waiver and Release Agreement and sets his hand and seal this ____ day of
____________, 20__.
