this Plan on any calendar year, shall be eighty-three hundredths of one percent
(0.83%) of the outstanding and issued Common Stock as of January 1 of such year
beginning January 1, 1997, plus the number of shares of Common Stock which shall
have become available for grants of awards under this Plan in any and all prior
calendar years, but which shall not have become subject to any award granted in
any prior year.

         Notwithstanding the foregoing, the maximum number of shares of Common
Stock available for the grant of Incentive Stock Options shall be 2,000,000. The
maximum number of shares of Common Stock with respect to which options or SARs
or a combination thereof may be granted during any calendar year to any person

                 II. STOCK OPTIONS AND STOCK APPRECIATION RIGHTS

2.1      STOCK OPTIONS. The Committee may, in its discretion, grant options to
purchase shares of Common Stock to such eligible persons as may be selected by
the Committee. Each option, or portion thereof, that is not an Incentive Stock
Option, shall be a Non-Statutory Stock Option. Each Incentive Stock Option shall
be granted within ten years of the effective date of this Plan. To the extent
that the aggregate Fair Market Value (determined as of the date of grant) of
shares of Common Stock with respect to which options designated as Incentive
Stock Options are exercisable for the first time by a participant during any
calendar year (under this Plan or any other plan of the Company, or any parent
or Subsidiary) exceeds the amount (currently $100,000) established by the Code,
such options shall constitute Non-Statutory Stock Options.

         Options shall be subject to the following terms and conditions and
shall contain such additional terms and conditions, not inconsistent with the
terms of this Plan, as the Committee shall deem advisable:

         (a) Number of Shares and Purchase Price. The number of shares of Common
Stock subject to an option and the purchase price per share of Common Stock
purchasable upon exercise of the option shall be determined by the Committee;
provided, however, that the purchase price per share of Common Stock purchasable
upon exercise of a Non-Statutory Stock Option shall not be less than 100% of the
Fair Market Value of a share of Common Stock on the date of grant of such option
and the purchase price per share of Common Stock purchasable upon exercise of an
Incentive Stock Option shall not be less than 100% of the Fair Market Value of a
share of Common Stock on the date of grant of such option; provided further,
that if an Incentive Stock Option shall be granted to any person who, at the
time such option is granted, owns capital stock possessing more than ten percent
of the total combined voting power of all classes of capital stock of the
Company (or of any parent or Subsidiary) (a "Ten Percent Holder"), the purchase
price per share of Common Stock shall be the price (currently 110% of Fair
Market Value) required by the Code in order to constitute an Incentive Stock
Option.

         (b) Option Period and Exercisability. The period during which an option
may be exercised shall be determined by the Committee; provided, however, that
no Incentive Stock Option shall be exercised later than ten years after its date
of grant; provided further, that if an Incentive Stock Option shall be granted
to a Ten Percent Holder, such option shall not be exercised later than five
years after its date of grant. The Committee may, in its discretion, establish
Performance Measures which shall be satisfied or met as a condition to the grant
of an option or to the exercisability of all or a portion of an option. The
Committee shall determine whether an option shall become exercisable in
cumulative or non-cumulative installments and in part or in full at any time. An
exercisable option, or portion thereof, may be exercised only with respect to
whole shares of Common Stock.

         (c) Method of Exercise. An option may be exercised (i) by giving
written notice to the Company specifying the number of whole shares of
Common Stock to be purchased and accompanied by payment therefor in full (or
arrangement made for such payment to the Company's satisfaction) either (A) in
cash, (B) by delivery of previously owned whole shares of Common Stock (which
the optionee has held for at least six months prior to delivery of such shares
and for which the optionee has good title, free and clear of all liens and
encumbrances) having a Fair Market Value, determined as of the date of exercise,
equal to the aggregate purchase price payable by reason of such exercise, (C) by
authorizing the Company to withhold a number of whole shares of Common Stock
which would otherwise be delivered upon exercise of the option having a Fair
Market Value, determined as of the date of exercise, equal to the aggregate
purchase price payable by reason of 



such exercise, provided that the optionee attests in a manner satisfactory
to the Committee that the optionee at the time of such exercise holds and has
held for at least six months prior to such exercise an equal number of whole
shares of Common Stock and as to which the optionee has good title, free and
clear of all liens and encumbrances, (D) in cash by a broker-dealer acceptable
to the Company to whom the optionee has submitted an irrevocable notice of
exercise or (E) a combination of (A), (B) and (C), in each case to the extent
set forth in the Agreement relating to the option, (ii) if applicable, by
surrendering to the Company any Tandem SARs which are cancelled by reason of the
exercise of the option and (iii) by executing such documents as the Company may
reasonably request. The Committee may require that the method of making such
payment be in compliance with Section 16 and the rules and regulations
thereunder. Any fraction of a share of Common Stock which would be required to
pay such purchase price shall be disregarded and the remaining amount due shall
be paid in cash by the optionee. No certificate representing Common Stock shall
be delivered until the full purchase price therefor has been paid.

2.2      STOCK APPRECIATION RIGHTS.  The Committee may, in its discretion, 
grant SARs to such eligible persons as may be selected by the Committee. The
Agreement relating to an SAR shall specify whether the SAR is a Tandem SAR or a
Free-Standing SAR.

         SARs shall be subject to the following terms and conditions and shall
contain such additional terms and conditions, not inconsistent with the terms of
this Plan, as the Committee shall deem advisable:

         (a) Number of SARs and Base Price. The number of SARs subject to an
award shall be determined by the Committee. Any Tandem SAR related to an
Incentive Stock Option shall be granted at the same time that such Incentive
Stock Option is granted. The base price of a Tandem SAR shall be the purchase
price per share of Common Stock of the related option. The base price of a
Free-Standing SAR shall be determined by the Committee; provided, however, that
such base price shall not be less than 100% of the Fair Market Value of a share
of Common Stock on the date of grant of such SAR.

         (b) Exercise Period and Exercisability. The Agreement relating to an
award of SARs shall specify whether such award may be settled in shares of
Common Stock (including shares of Restricted Stock) or cash or a combination
thereof. The period for the exercise of an SAR shall be determined by the
Committee; provided, however, that no Tandem SAR shall be exercised later than
the expiration, cancellation, forfeiture or other termination of the related
option. The Committee may, in its discretion, establish Performance Measures
which shall be satisfied or met as a condition to the grant of an SAR or to the
exercisability of all or a portion of an SAR. The Committee shall determine
whether an SAR may be exercised in cumulative or non-cumulative installments and
in part or in full at any time. An exercisable SAR, or portion thereof, may be
exercised, in the case of a Tandem SAR, only with respect to whole shares of
Common Stock and, in the case of a Free-Standing SAR, only with respect to a
whole number of SARs. If an SAR is exercised for shares of Restricted Stock, a
certificate or certificates representing such Restricted Stock shall be issued
in accordance with Section 3.2(c) and the holder of such Restricted Stock shall
have such rights of a stockholder of the Company as determined pursuant to
Section 3.2(d). Prior to the exercise of an SAR for shares of Common Stock,
including Restricted Stock, the holder of such SAR shall have no rights as a
stockholder of the Company with respect to the shares of Common Stock subject to
such SAR and shall have rights as a stockholder of the Company in accordance
with Section 6.10.

         (c) Method of Exercise. A Tandem SAR may be exercised (i) by giving
written notice to the Company specifying the number of whole SARs which are
being exercised, (ii) by surrendering to the Company any options which are
cancelled by reason of the exercise of the Tandem SAR and (iii) by executing
such documents as the Company may reasonably request. A Free-Standing SAR may be
exercised (i) by giving written notice to the Company specifying the whole
number of SARs which 


are being exercised and (ii) by executing such documents as the Company may
reasonably request.

2.3      TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT. Except as otherwise provided in this 
Section 2.3 and subject to Section 6.8, all of the terms relating to the
exercise, cancellation or other disposition of an option or SAR upon a
termination of employment with the Company of the holder of such option or SAR,
as the case may be, whether by reason of retirement or other termination, shall
be determined by the Committee. Such determination shall be made at the time of
the grant of such option or SAR, as the case may be, and shall be specified in
the Agreement relating to such option or SAR. Notwithstanding the foregoing,
each option or SAR granted under the Plan shall become fully vested and
nonforfeitable upon the death or Disability of the Participant awarded such
option or SAR, provided such Participant is employed by the Company on the date
of death or Disability.

                                III. STOCK AWARDS

3.1      STOCK AWARDS.  The Committee may, in its discretion, grant Stock Awards
to such eligible persons as may be selected by the Committee. The Agreement
relating to a Stock Award shall specify whether the Stock Award is a Restricted
Stock Award or Bonus Stock Award.

3.2      TERMS OF STOCK AWARDS. Stock Awards shall be subject to the following
terms and conditions and shall contain such additional terms and conditions, not
inconsistent with the terms of this Plan, as the Committee shall deem advisable.

         (a) NUMBER OF SHARES AND OTHER TERMS. The number of shares of Common
Stock subject to a Restricted Stock Award or Bonus Stock Award and the
Performance Measures (if any) and Restriction Period applicable to a Restricted
Stock Award shall be determined by the Committee.

         (b) VESTING AND FORFEITURE. The Agreement relating to a Restricted
Stock Award shall provide, in the manner determined by the Committee, in its
discretion, and subject to the provisions of this Plan, for the vesting of the
shares of Common Stock subject to such award (i) if specified Performance
Measures are satisfied or met during the specified Restriction Period or (ii) if
the holder of such award remains continuously in the employment of the Company
during the specified Restriction Period and for the forfeiture of the shares of
Common Stock subject to such award (x) if specified Performance Measures are not
satisfied or met during the specified Restriction Period or (y) if the holder of
such award does not remain continuously in the employment of the Company during
the specified Restriction Period.

         Bonus Stock Awards shall not be subject to any Performance Measures or
Restriction Periods.

         (c) SHARE CERTIFICATES. During the Restriction Period, a certificate or
certificates representing a Restricted Stock Award may be registered in the
holder's name and may bear a legend, in addition to any legend which may be
required pursuant to Section 6.6, indicating that the ownership of the shares of
Common Stock represented by such certificate is subject to the restrictions,
terms and conditions of this Plan and the Agreement relating to the Restricted
Stock Award. All such certificates shall be deposited with the Company, together
with stock powers or other instruments of assignment (including a power of
attorney), each endorsed in blank with a guarantee of signature if deemed
necessary or appropriate by the Company, which would permit transfer to the
Company of all or a portion of the shares of Common Stock subject to the
Restricted Stock Award in the event such award is forfeited in whole or in part.
Upon termination of any applicable Restriction Period (and the satisfaction or
attainment of applicable Performance Measures), or upon the grant of a Bonus
Stock Award, in each case subject to the Company's right to require payment of
any taxes in accordance with Section 6.5, a certificate or certificates
evidencing ownership of the requisite


number of shares of Common Stock shall be delivered to the holder of such award.

         (d) RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO RESTRICTED STOCK AWARDS. Unless otherwise
set forth in the Agreement relating to a Restricted Stock Award, and subject to
the terms and conditions of a Restricted Stock Award, the holder of such award
shall have all rights as a stockholder of the Company, including, but not
limited to, voting rights, the right to receive dividends and the right to
participate in any capital adjustment applicable to all holders of Common Stock;
provided, however, that a distribution with respect to shares of Common Stock,
other than a distribution in cash, shall be deposited with the Company and shall
be subject to the same restrictions as the shares of Common Stock with respect
to which such distribution was made.

3.3 TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT. Except as otherwise provided in this Section 3.3
and subject to Section 6.8, all of the terms relating to the satisfaction of
Performance Measures and the termination of the Restriction Period relating to a
Restricted Stock Award, or cancellation of or forfeiture of such Restricted
Stock Award upon a termination of employment with the Company of the holder of
such Restricted Stock Award, whether by reason of retirement or other
termination, shall be set forth in the Agreement relating to such Restricted
Stock Award, except that, notwithstanding the foregoing, each Restricted Stock
Award shall become fully vested and nonforfeitable upon the death or Disability
of the Participant awarded such Restricted Stock Award, provided such
Participant is employed by the Company on the date of death or Disability.

3.4      DEFERRED SHARES.  The Committee may also authorize the granting or sale
of Deferred Shares to Participants. Each such grant or sale may utilize any or
all of the authorizations and shall be subject to all of the requirements
contained in the following provisions:

                  (a) Each such grant or sale shall constitute the agreement by
         the Company to deliver Common Stock to the Participant in the future in
         consideration of the performance of services, but subject to the
         fulfillment of such conditions during the Deferral Period as the Board
         may specify.

                  (b) Each such grant or sale may be made without additional
         consideration or in consideration of a payment by such Participant that
         is less than the Fair Market Value per share of Common Stock at the
         date of grant.

                  (c) Each such grant or sale shall be subject to a Deferral
         Period of not less than 1 year, as determined by the Board at the date
         of grant, and may provide for the earlier lapse or other modification
         of such Deferral Period in the event of a Change in Control.

                  (d) During the Deferral Period, the Participant shall have no
         right to transfer any rights under his or her award and shall have no
         rights of ownership in the Deferred Shares and shall have no right to
         vote them, but the Committee may, at or after the date of grant,
         authorize the payment of dividend equivalents on such Shares on either
         a current or deferred or contingent basis, either in cash or in
         additional Common Stock.

         (e) Each grant or sale of Deferred Shares shall be evidenced by an
agreement executed on behalf of the Company by any officer and delivered to and
accepted by the Participant and shall


contain such terms and provisions, consistent with this Plan, as the Board may
approve.

Stock shall be issued in accordance with Section 3.2(c) and the holder of such
Restricted Stock shall have such rights of a stockholder of the Company as
determined pursuant to Section 3.2(d). Prior to the settlement of a Performance
Share Award in shares of Common Stock, including Restricted Stock, the holder of
such award shall have no rights as a stockholder of the Company with respect to
the shares of Common Stock subject to such award.

4.3      TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT. Except as otherwise provided in this 
Section 4.3 and subject to Section 6.8, all of the terms relating to the
satisfaction of Performance Measures and the termination of the Performance
Period relating to a Performance Share Award, or cancellation of or forfeiture
of such Performance Share Award upon a termination of employment with the
Company of the holder of such Performance Share Award, whether by reason of
retirement or other termination, shall be set forth in the Agreement relating to
such Performance Share Award, except that, notwithstanding the foregoing, each
Performance Share Award shall become fully vested and nonforfeitable upon the
death or Disability of the Participant holding such Performance Share Award,
provided such Participant is employed by the Company on the date of death or
Disability.

                V. PROVISIONS RELATING TO NON-EMPLOYEE DIRECTORS

5.1      ELIGIBILITY. Each Non-Employee Director shall be eligible to elect to
receive shares of Common Stock in accordance with this Article V.

5.2      TIME AND MANNER OF ELECTION. At least 6 (six) months prior to the date
of any annual meeting of shareholders of the Company during the term of this
Plan, Non-Employee Directors may file with the Committee or its designee a
written election to receive shares of Common Stock in lieu of all or a portion
of such Non-Employee Director's future annual retainer, paid quarterly,
exclusive of 



meeting or committee fees. Notwithstanding the foregoing, an election made by
(i) a Non-Employee Director in respect of the annual retainer payable for the
period beginning on the date of the 1995 annual meeting of the shareholders of
the Company or (ii) an individual who becomes a Non-Employee Director on a date
less than six months prior to any annual meeting of shareholders, shall become
effective on the first business day that is six months after the date
("Effective Date") such Non-Employee Director files such election, and such
election shall be applicable only to the portion of such Non-Employee Director's
annual retainer determined by multiplying such annual retainer by a fraction,
the numerator of which is the number of calendar days from the Effective Date to
and including the last day for which such Annual Retainer is payable and the
denominator is 365. An election pursuant to this Section, once made, shall be
irrevocable in respect to the annual retainer for which made.

         The Shares to be issued pursuant to this Section shall be issued on
each date on which an installment of the Non-Employee Director's annual retainer
would otherwise be payable in cash. The number of such shares to be issued shall
be determined by dividing the amount of the then payable installment of the
annual retainer subject to an election under this Section by the Fair Market
Value of a share of Common Stock on such date. Any fraction of a share shall be
disregarded and the remaining amount of the annual retainer shall be paid in
cash.

                                   VI. GENERAL

6.1      EFFECTIVE DATE AND TERM OF PLAN. This Plan shall be submitted to the
stockholders of the Company for approval and, if approved by the affirmative
vote of a majority of the shares of Common Stock present in person or
represented by proxy at the 1997 annual meeting of stockholders, shall become
effective on the date of such approval. This Plan shall terminate 10 years after
its effective date unless terminated earlier by the Board. Termination of this
Plan shall not affect the terms or conditions of any award granted prior to
termination.

         Awards hereunder may be made at any time prior to the termination of
this Plan, provided that no award may be made later than 10 years after the
effective date of this Plan. In the event that this Plan is not approved by the
stockholders of the Company, this Plan and any awards hereunder shall be void
and of no force or effect.

6.2      AMENDMENTS. The Board may amend this Plan as it shall deem advisable,
subject to any requirement of stockholder approval required by applicable law,
rule or regulation including Section 162(m) of the Code; provided, however, that
no amendment shall be made without stockholder approval if such amendment would
(a) increase the maximum number of shares of Common Stock available under this
Plan (subject to Section 6.7), or (b) extend the term of this Plan; provided
further that, subject to Section 6.7. No amendment may impair the rights of a
holder of an outstanding award without the consent of such holder.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Board may condition the grant of any award or
combination of awards authorized under the Plan on the surrender or deferral by
the Participant of such Participant's right to an award hereunder, a cash bonus,
or other compensation otherwise payable by the Company to the Participant.

6.3      AGREEMENT. Each award under this Plan shall be evidenced by an 
Agreement setting forth the terms and conditions applicable to such award. No
award shall be valid until an Agreement is executed by the Company and the
recipient of such award and, upon execution by each party and delivery of the
Agreement to the Company, such award shall be effective as of the effective date
set forth in the Agreement.

6.4      TRANSFERABILITY OF STOCK OPTIONS, SARS AND PERFORMANCE SHARES.

         (a) Except as set forth in Section 6.4(b) or as otherwise determined by
the Board, no option, SAR 



or Performance Share shall be transferable other than (i) by will, the laws of
descent and distribution or pursuant to beneficiary designation procedures
approved by the Committee or (ii) as otherwise permitted under Rule 16b-3 under
the Exchange Act as set forth in the Agreement relating to such award. Except to
the extent permitted by the foregoing sentence and Section 6.4(b), each option,
SAR or Performance Share may be exercised or settled during the holder's
lifetime only by the holder or the holder's legal representative or similar
person. Except to the extent permitted by the second preceding sentence and
Section 6.4(b), no option, SAR or Performance Share may be sold, transferred,
assigned, pledged, hypothecated, encumbered or otherwise disposed of (whether by
operation of law or otherwise) or be subject to execution, attachment or similar
process. Except as provided in Section 6.4(b), upon any attempt to so sell,
transfer, assign, pledge, hypothecate, encumber or otherwise dispose of any
option, SAR or Performance Share, such award, and all rights thereunder shall
immediately become null and void.

                  (b) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 6.4(a), option
         rights (other than Incentive Stock Options) shall be transferable by a
         Participant, without payment of consideration therefor by the
         transferee, to any one or more members of the Participant's Immediate
         Family (or to one or more trusts established solely for the benefit of
         one or more members of the Participant's Immediate Family or to one or
         more partnerships in which the only partners are members of the
         Participant's Immediate Family); provided, however, that (i) no such
         transfer shall be effective unless reasonable prior notice thereof is
         delivered to the Company and such transfer is thereafter effected
         subject to the specific authorization of, and in accordance with any
         terms and conditions that shall have been made applicable thereto, by
         the Committee or by the Board and (ii) any such transferee shall be
         subject to the same terms and conditions hereunder as the Participant.

6.5      TAX WITHHOLDING. The Company shall have the right to require, prior to
the issuance or delivery of any shares of Common Stock or the payment of any
cash pursuant to an award made hereunder, payment by the holder of such award of
any Federal, state, local or other taxes which may be required to be withheld or
paid in connection with such award. An Agreement may provide that (i) the
Company shall withhold whole shares of Common Stock which would otherwise be
delivered to a holder, having an aggregate Fair Market Value determined as of
the date the obligation to withhold or pay taxes arises in connection with an
award (the "Tax Date"), or withhold an amount of cash which would otherwise be
payable to a holder, in the amount necessary to satisfy any such obligation or
(ii) the holder may satisfy any such obligation by any of the following means:
(A) a cash payment to the Company, (B) delivery to the Company of previously
owned whole shares of Common Stock (which the holder has held for at least six
months prior to the delivery of such shares and for which the holder has good
title, free and clear of all liens and encumbrances) having an aggregate Fair
Market Value, determined as of the Tax Date, equal to the amount necessary to
satisfy any such obligation, (C) authorizing the Company to withhold whole
shares of Common Stock which would otherwise be delivered having an aggregate
Fair Market Value, determined as of the Tax Date, or withhold an amount of cash
which would otherwise be payable to a holder, equal to the amount necessary to
satisfy any such obligation, (D) in the case of the exercise of an option, a
cash payment by a broker-dealer acceptable to the Company to whom the optionee
has submitted an irrevocable notice of exercise or (E) any combination of (A),
(B) and (C), in each case to the extent set forth in the Agreement relating to
the award; provided, however, that the Committee shall have sole discretion to
disapprove of an election pursuant to any of clauses (B), (E) and that in the
case of a holder who is subject to Section 16 of the Exchange Act, the Company
may require that the method of satisfying such an obligation be in compliance
with Section 16 and the rules and regulations thereunder. An Agreement may
provide for shares of Common Stock to be delivered or withheld having an
aggregate Fair Market Value in excess of the minimum amount required to be
withheld, but not in excess of the amount determined by applying the holder's
maximum marginal tax rate. Any fraction of a share of Common Stock which would
be required to satisfy such an obligation 


shall be disregarded and the remaining amount due shall be paid in cash by the
holder.

6.6      RESTRICTIONS ON SHARES. Each award made hereunder shall be subject to
the requirement that if at any time the Company determines that the listing,
registration or qualification of the shares of Common Stock subject to such
award upon any securities exchange or under any law, or the consent or approval
of any governmental body, or the taking of any other action is necessary or
desirable as a condition of, or in connection with, the delivery of shares
thereunder, such shares shall not be delivered unless such listing,
registration, qualification, consent, approval or other action shall have been
effected or obtained, free of any conditions not acceptable to the Company. The
Company may require that certificates evidencing shares of Common Stock
delivered pursuant to any award made hereunder bear a legend indicating that the
sale, transfer or other disposition thereof by the holder is prohibited except
in compliance with the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the rules and
regulations thereunder.

6.7      ADJUSTMENT. In the event of any stock split, stock dividend,
recapitalization, reorganization, merger, consolidation, combination, exchange
of shares, liquidation, spin-off or other similar change in capitalization or
event, or any distribution to holders of Common Stock other than a regular cash
dividend, the number and class of securities available under this Plan, the
number and class of securities subject to each outstanding option and the
purchase price per security, the terms of each outstanding SAR, the number and
class of securities subject to each outstanding Stock Award or Deferred Share
Award, and the terms of each outstanding Performance Share shall be
appropriately adjusted by the Committee, such adjustments to be made in the case
of outstanding options and SARs without an increase in the aggregate purchase
price or base price. The decision of the Committee regarding any such adjustment
shall be final, binding and conclusive. If any such adjustment would result in a
fractional security being (i) available under this Plan, such fractional
security shall be disregarded, or (ii) subject to an award under this Plan, the
Company shall pay the holder of such award, in connection with the first
vesting, exercise or settlement of such award, in whole or in part, occurring
after such adjustment, an amount in cash determined by multiplying (i) the
fraction of such security (rounded to the nearest hundredth) by (ii) the excess,
if any, of (A) the Fair Market Value on the vesting, exercise or settlement date
over (B) the exercise or base price, if any, of such award.

6.8      CHANGE IN CONTROL.

         (a) (1) Notwithstanding any provision in this Plan or any Agreement, in
the event of a Change in Control pursuant to Section (b)(3) or (4) below in
connection with which the holders of Common Stock receive shares of common stock
that are registered under Section 12 of the Exchange Act, (i) all outstanding
options and SARS shall immediately become exercisable in full, (ii) the
Restriction Period applicable to any outstanding Restricted Stock Award shall
lapse, (iii) the Performance Period applicable to any outstanding Performance
Share shall lapse, (iv) the Performance Measures applicable to any outstanding
Restricted Stock Award (if any) and to any outstanding Performance Share shall
be deemed to be satisfied at the maximum level, (v) there shall be substituted
for each share of Common Stock available under this Plan, whether or not then
subject to an outstanding award, the number and class of shares into which each
outstanding share of Common Stock shall be converted pursuant to such Change in
Control, and (vi) the Deferral Period applicable to any Deferred Shares shall
lapse. In the event of any such substitution, the purchase price per share in
the case of an option and the base price in the case of an SAR shall be
appropriately adjusted by the Committee, such adjustments to be made in the case
of outstanding options and SARs without an increase in the aggregate purchase
price or base price.

                  (2) Notwithstanding any provision in this Plan or any
Agreement, in the event of a Change in Control pursuant to Section (b)(1) or (2)
below, or in the event of a Change in Control pursuant to Section (b)(3) or (4)
below in connection with which the holders of Common Stock 



receive consideration other than shares of common stock that are registered
under Section 12 of the Exchange Act, each outstanding award shall be
surrendered to the Company by the holder thereof, and each such award shall
immediately be cancelled by the Company, and the holder shall receive, within
ten days of the occurrence of a Change in Control pursuant to Section (b)(1) or
(2) below or within ten days of the approval of the stockholders of the Company
contemplated by Section (b)(3) or (4) below, a cash payment from the Company in
an amount equal to (i) in the case of an option, the number of shares of Common
Stock then subject to such option, multiplied by the excess, if any, of the
greater of (A) the highest per share price offered to stockholders of the
Company in any transaction whereby the Change in Control takes place or (B) the
Fair Market Value of a share of Common Stock on the date of occurrence of the
Change in Control, over the purchase price per share of Common Stock subject to
the option, (ii) in the case of a Free-Standing SAR, the number of shares of
Common Stock then subject to such SAR, multiplied by the excess, if any, of the
greater of (A) the highest per share price offered to stockholders of the
Company in any transaction whereby the Change in Control takes place or (B) the
Fair Market Value of a share of Common Stock on the date of occurrence of the
Change in Control, over the base price of the SAR, (iii) in the case of a
Restricted Stock Award, Performance Share Award or Deferred Share Award, the
number of shares of Common Stock or the number of Performance Shares, as the
case may be, then subject to such award, multiplied by the greater of (A) the
highest per share price offered to stockholders of the Company in any
transaction whereby the Change in Control takes place or (B) the Fair Market
Value of a share of Common Stock on the date of occurrence of the Change in
Control. In the event of a Change in Control, each Tandem SAR shall be
surrendered by the holder thereof and shall be cancelled simultaneously with the
cancellation of the related option. The Company may, but is not required to,
cooperate with any person who is subject to Section 16 of the Exchange Act to
assure that any cash payment in accordance with the foregoing to such person is
made in compliance with Section 16 and the rules and regulations thereunder.

         (b)      "Change in Control" shall mean:

                  (1) the acquisition by any individual, entity or group (a

limitation, a corporation which as a result of such transaction owns the Company
or all or substantially all of the Company's assets either directly or through
one or more subsidiaries) in substantially in the same proportions as their
ownership, immediately prior to such Business Combination of the Outstanding
Company Common Stock and the Outstanding Company Voting Securities, as the case
may be, (ii) no Person (excluding any corporation resulting from such Business
