Section 3.03. Overriding Provisions. Notwithstanding anything to --------------------- the contrary in this Agreement, this Article III and Article VII hereof shall be subject to the following provisions: (a) This Article III shall not govern any Tax, and any and all Losses relating to foreign, federal, state and local Taxes, including the payment of Taxes, and all Losses relating to breach of any representation, warranty or covenant under the Tax Sharing Agreement, shall be exclusively governed by the Tax Sharing Agreement. (b) Except as otherwise expressly set forth below, this Article III shall not govern any employee benefits matters, or any and all Losses relating to the establishment, maintenance and administration of employee benefit plans and programs, which shall be exclusively governed by the provisions of Article VII hereof. (c) The indemnification provisions of this Article III and Article VII hereof shall not inure to the benefit of any third party or parties other than the directors, officers and Affiliates of a Group as expressly provided in Sections 3.01, 3.02, 7.05 and 7.06. By way of illustration only, an insurer who would otherwise be obligated to pay any claim shall not be relieved of the responsibility with respect thereto, or, solely by virtue of the indemnification provisions hereof, have any subrogation rights with respect thereto, it being expressly understood and agreed that no insurer or any other third party shall be entitled to a "windfall" (i.e., a benefit they would not be entitled to receive in the absence of the indemnification provisions) by virtue of the indemnification provisions. Accordingly, any indemnification shall be paid net of the amount of any insurance paid to the indemnified party. (d) In the case of any Loss with respect to which an indemnification payment is required under this Article III or Article VII hereof (an "Indemnification Payment"), the amount of such Indemnification Payment shall be adjusted in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Tax Sharing Agreement. ARTICLE IV INDEMNIFICATION PROCEDURES Section 4.01. Notice and Payment of Claims. If either Group (the ---------------------------- "Indemnified Party") determines that it is or may be entitled to indemnification by the other Group (the "Indemnifying Party") under Article III or Article VII hereof, the Indemnified Party shall promptly deliver to the Indemnifying Party a written notice and demand therefor, specifying, to 9 the extent reasonably practicable, the basis for its claim for indemnification, the nature of the claim and the amount for which the Indemnified Party reasonably believes it is entitled to be indemnified. Unless such claim is subject to the provisions of Section 4.02 below, the Indemnifying Party shall pay the Indemnified Party the amount set forth in such notice, in cash or other immediately available funds, within thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice. However, the Indemnifying Party may object to the claim for indemnification set forth in such notice; provided, however, that if the -------- ------- Indemnifying Party does not give the Indemnified Party written notice setting forth its objection to such claim and the grounds therefor within the same thirty (30) day period, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have acknowledged its liability for the amount of such claim and the Indemnified Party may exercise any and all of its rights under applicable law to collect such amount. Any such objection to a claim for indemnification shall be resolved in accordance with Section 4.03. Section 4.02. Defense of Third-Party Claims. If the Indemnified ----------------------------- Party's claim for indemnification is based on a claim, demand, action or proceeding, judicial or otherwise, brought by a third party, and except in the event that a party is disputing that it has any indemnification obligation to the other party (in which event the provisions of Section 4.03 below shall apply), within the thirty (30) day period referred to in Section 4.01 above, (a) the Indemnified Party may, by giving written notice thereof to the Indemnifying Party, require the Indemnifying Party to assume, or (b) the Indemnifying Party may at its option and by giving written notice thereof to the Indemnified Party elect to assume, the defense of such third-party claim at its sole cost and expense. Any such contest shall be conducted by attorneys employed by the Indemnifying Party, but the Indemnified Party shall have the right to participate in such proceedings and to be represented by attorneys of its own choosing at the Indemnified Party's sole cost and expense. If the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of any such third-party claim, the Indemnifying Party may settle or compromise the claim without prior written consent of the Indemnified Party so long as such settlement does not impose any obligation or restriction of any nature on the Indemnified Party. The Indemnifying Party shall pay to the Indemnified Party in cash the amount for which the Indemnified Party is entitled to be indemnified within fifteen (15) days after the settlement or compromise of such third-party claim or the final unappealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction. If the Indemnified Party does not require the Indemnifying Party, and the Indemnifying Party does not elect, to assume the defense of any such third-party claim, the Indemnifying Party shall be bound by the result obtained with respect thereto by the Indemnified Party. Section 4.03. Dispute Resolution. In an effort to resolve ------------------ informally and amicably any claim or controversy arising out of or related to the interpretation or performance of this Agreement without resorting to litigation, each party shall notify the other party to the dispute in writing of any difference or dispute hereunder that requires resolution. Each party in dispute shall designate an employee to investigate, discuss and seek to settle the matter between them. If the two are unable to settle the matter within thirty (30) days after such notification, the matter shall be submitted to a senior officer of each such party for consideration. If settlement cannot be reached through their efforts within an additional thirty (30) days, or such longer time period as they shall agree upon, such parties shall consider arbitration or other alternative means to resolve the dispute. If they are unable to agree to an alternative dispute resolution mechanism, either party may initiate legal proceedings to resolve such matter. If upon final resolution of a dispute it is determined that one party has an indemnification obligation to the other, in such 10 event, the provisions of Section 4.02 shall then apply, with the thirty (30) day period described in Sections 4.01 and 4.02 commencing upon the date of final resolution of the matter. ARTICLE V OTHER AGREEMENTS Section 5.01. Asset Transfers.

(c) If any transfer contemplated by subsection (a) shall not have been consummated prior to the Distribution Date, the parties shall cooperate to effect such transfer as promptly thereafter as shall be reasonably practicable, it nonetheless being agreed and understood that no party shall be liable to any other party for any delay in making any transfer contemplated by this Section. Notwithstanding the provisions of Article III, upon such transfer, the transferee of any such asset shall assume any liability (other than any liability relating to any Tax, which liabilities are exclusively governed by the Tax Sharing Agreement) relating to such asset and shall indemnify and hold harmless the transferor and its directors, officers and Affiliates against all claims relating thereto.

(a) The ------------------------------------------ parties agree that from the date hereof until the Distribution Date, except as otherwise contemplated by this Agreement, they will use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the businesses of New Fluor and Parent to be conducted diligently in the ordinary course and substantially in the same manner as heretofore conducted and to preserve intact the business organization and goodwill of each such business; provided, however, that notwithstanding the -------- foregoing, (i) Parent shall, at New Fluor's request, (A) authorize one or more contributions from Parent to New Fluor on the Distribution Date, in the form of cash, securities and/or property, in such amount and on such terms and subject to such conditions as the board of directors of Parent may determine, (B) determine Cumulative Cash Flow in order to determine the final level of Massey Debt Position (as defined below) in accordance with Section 5.11, and (C) enter into commercial paper or other financing arrangements to pay such contributions and for other purposes and (ii) New Fluor shall adopt a charter and by-laws reasonably satisfactory to New Fluor and Parent, for approval by Parent as sole stockholder of New Fluor. (b) The parties agree that on or before the Distribution Date, Parent shall settle and terminate that certain Forward Equity Acquisition Transaction between Parent and Citibank, N.A. dated as of October 30, 1998 for the purchase of 1,850,000 shares of Parent common stock. (c) Prior to the Distribution Date, the Massey Group shall not, without the prior consent in writing of Parent, make any public announcement or issue any press release with respect to the Distribution or with respect to any material event, and, subject to Article IX, each Group shall use commercially reasonable efforts not to take any action which may prejudice or delay the consummation of the Distribution. Section 5.06. Intercompany Accounts. All intercompany accounts, --------------------- receivables and payables between the parties hereto shall be settled and resolved in accordance with the provisions of Schedule 5.06 attached hereto, except those related to Appalachian Synfuel, LLC which shall be addressed in the agreement transferring ownership to the Massey Group. Section 5.07. Intellectual Property. On or prior to the --------------------- Distribution Date, Parent shall transfer to New Fluor all intellectual property held by Parent, other than intellectual property that relates to the Massey Business, including, without limitation, the intellectual property listed on Schedule 5.07. Section 5.08. Insurance. With respect to the Fluor Insurance --------- Policies currently maintained by Parent, Parent shall continue to maintain the status of the members of the Massey Group as "insureds" under the layers of the combined aggregate protection and excess liability portion of the Fluor Insurance Policies up to the Distribution Date, and Parent and New Fluor will take such action as is necessary and appropriate to cause, effective as of the Distribution Date: (a) New Fluor (and with respect to directors and officers liability insurance, the directors and officers of New Fluor) to become the sole "named insured" on each of the Fluor Insurance Policies whose policy term shall not have expired prior to the Distribution Date and on its combined aggregate protection and excess liability policies for the period 10-31-98 through 10-31-00, and the transfer by Parent to New Fluor of all assets and liabilities related to the Fluor Insurance Policies; (b) the termination of the excess coverage of all members of the Massey 13 Group under the Fluor Insurance Policies and the discontinuation of all members of the Massey Group as an "insured" under any of the Fluor Insurance Policies; (c) to provide Parent with additional insured status under the combined aggregate protection and excess liability portions of its coverage with respect to claims (other than those arising from the Massey Business) for occurrences arising before the Distribution Date; and (d) to provide the directors and officers of Parent with additional insured status under the directors and officers policy of Parent with respect to claims for occurrences arising on or before the Distribution Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, with respect to aircraft liability coverage currently being maintained by Parent (ACE; Policy No. S00387149) (the "Aircraft Policy"), Parent agrees that it shall use commercially reasonable efforts to permit the assignment of such Aircraft Policy to the Massey Group, such assignment to occur, if at all, concurrently with the Distribution Date. Parent and New Fluor have not taken, and on and after the Distribution Date, New Fluor shall refrain from taking, any action which adversely impacts the coverage of the Massey Group for claims based upon their status as an "insured" up to the Distribution Date with respect to any coverage afforded under the Fluor Insurance Policies that is broader than that afforded to Massey under its own insurance policies covering the same types of risks. Parent represents and warrants that it has provided notice to the primary and excess layer of its combined aggregate protection and excess liability policies concerning the coal slurry release, Martin County, Kentucky, which commenced on or about October 11, 2000, and Parent has taken no action constituting a waiver of coverage therefor. It is specifically acknowledged and agreed that the Massey Group may communicate directly with the Fluor Insurance Policies carriers on the coal slurry release, provide claims related documentation to such carriers and may take such other action as may be, in its reasonable discretion, required in order to determine coverage under the applicable insurance policies. Any such communications shall be concurrently copied to New Fluor and where the communication deals with payment or coverage demands, coverage positions or legal proceedings, then Massey shall provide New Fluor with reasonable prior notice and shall otherwise consult with New Fluor prior to any communication with the Fluor carriers or the institution of legal proceedings. After the Distribution Date, New Fluor shall not take any action to forfeit, waive, cancel, amend or modify, or cause to be forfeited, waived, cancelled, amended or modified, the insurance coverage to be provided to the Massey Group under the Fluor Insurance Policies up to the Distribution Date. After the Distribution Date, the Massey Group shall not take any action to forfeit, waive, cancel, amend or modify, or cause to be forfeited, waived, cancelled, amended or modified, the coverage to be provided to New Fluor under the Fluor Insurance Policies up to the Distribution Date. From and after the Distribution Date, New Fluor shall cause the New Fluor Group to maintain, and Massey shall cause the Massey Group to maintain, with financially sound and reputable insurance companies, property damage, commercial general liability, professional liability and directors and officer's liability insurance in at least such amounts and against such risks as are usually insured against by companies of established repute engaged in the same or similar business as the New Fluor Group or Massey Group, as applicable, and owning similar assets ("Industry Standards"), except where such risks are covered by self-insurance so long as the amount of such self-insurance and the risks covered thereby are consistent with Industry Standards. Each party will promptly furnish the other party, subject to appropriate confidentiality protection, such information as to insurance carried or self-insurance maintained as may be reasonably requested in writing by such other party. 14 Parent hereby represents and warrants, on behalf of and with respect to the Massey Group, and New Fluor hereby represents and warrants on behalf of and with respect to the New Fluor Group, that except as previously disclosed in writing to the other party, there are no outstanding claims or notices, or, to its best knowledge, facts and circumstances which could reasonably be expected to result in a claim or notice, under any of the combined aggregate protection or excess liability portions of the Fluor Insurance Policies. Section 5.09. Retained Liabilities. Without limiting any other -------------------- provision of this Agreement, the Massey Group acknowledges the obligations and liabilities set forth on Schedule 5.09, and to the extent applicable, the Massey Group agrees to honor and properly discharge all such obligations and liabilities following the Distribution Date. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the New Fluor indemnity provisions described in Section 3.01 of this Agreement shall not apply to the extent that the Massey Indemnified Parties are the cause, either directly or indirectly, of any matter, activity or omission resulting in Losses due to breach of the obligations and liabilities set forth in Schedule 5.09. The foregoing notwithstanding, with respect to any guarantees issued by Parent that are listed on Schedule 5.09 and any other guarantees by Parent of any obligations arising from the Fluor Business that survive the Distribution, the obligations of the Massey Group under this Section 5.09 with respect to any such guarantee shall be deemed fully satisfied, and the Massey Indemnified Parties shall not suffer any diminution of indemnity rights otherwise available under this agreement for Losses arising from such guarantee if: (a) the Massey Group provides New Fluor with prompt written notice of any claims made under such guarantee and tenders the defense of such claims to New Fluor in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.01 and 4.02 hereof and (b) the Massey Group complies with its obligations under Article VI hereof that arise in respect of any claims made under such guarantee. With respect to the guarantees listed on Schedule 5.09 and any other guarantees by Fluor Corporation that relate to the Fluor Business, the New Fluor Group shall discharge in a timely manner all obligations secured by such guarantees and use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent any claim from being made under such guarantees; provided, however, that nothing in this Section 5.09 shall impose any obligation or liability whatsoever on the New Fluor Group to any member of the Massey Group for taking any action or refraining from taking any action in the defense, settlement or other handling of any claim against any member of the New Fluor Group covered by any such guarantee that the New Fluor Group determines in good faith to be appropriate in protecting the interests of the New Fluor Group with respect to such claim, except that the New Fluor Group shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the prompt release of any lien imposed on any assets of the Massey Group in connection with any such guarantee. The obligations set forth in this Section 5.09 shall be in addition to any obligation of New Fluor to indemnify the Massey Group with respect to Losses related to such guarantees pursuant to Section 3.01(e) of this Agreement. Section 5.10. Composition of Boards. The initial members of --------------------- the boards of directors of Massey and New Fluor following the Distribution shall be as set forth on Schedule 5.10. Section 5.11. Capital Structure. Parent will retain the Public ----------------- Debt, will incur additional borrowing in the commercial paper market and will enter into a new bank credit 15 facility to support its commercial paper program. The Massey Group's debt position as of the Distribution Date, composed of the Public Debt and commercial paper, will be $530 million (the "Massey Debt Position"), adjusted as follows: (i) If for the period beginning August 1, 2000 and ending on the Distribution Date, the Cumulative Cash Flow of A.T. Massey Coal Company, Inc. and its subsidiaries is positive, then the Massey Debt Position will be decreased by such amount unless the Massey Group retains such excess cash in its cash accounts in accordance with the provisions hereof and (ii) if such Cumulative Cash Flow for such period is negative, then the Massey Debt Position will be increased by such amount. For purposes of this Section 5.11, the term "Cumulative Cash Flow" shall be determined as follows: (a) if on the Distribution Date, the net cumulative cash transactions reflected through the Grid Note results in Net Cash Received by Parent from the Massey Group, such amount shall be deducted from the Massey Debt Position; (b) if on the Distribution Date, the net cumulative cash transactions reflected through the Grid Note results in Net Cash Paid by Parent to the Massey Group, such amount shall be added to the Massey Debt Position. (c) Notwithstanding the preceding, interest on the Grid Note, and the purchase price, redemption price or liquidation amount paid along with related settlement costs associated with the transfer of interests of Appalachian Synfuel, LLC, as described in Schedule 5.01, shall be excluded from the determination of Cumulative Cash Flow. (d) Attached hereto as Schedule 5.11 solely for explanatory purposes is a pro forma statement demonstrating how Cumulative Cash Flow would be calculated using sample numbers and reflecting the amount of commercial paper or other borrowings that would be deliverable from Parent to New Fluor in the form of contributions but whose repayment responsibility shall be retained by the Massey Group following the closing of the Distribution, such contributions to occur in accordance with Section 5.05. Section 5.12 Additional Settlement Matters. The following ----------------------------- additional costs, expenses and matters shall be settled as follows, and shall not impact the determination of Cumulative Cash Flow: (a) Transaction Expenses shall be determined in accordance with Section 10.01. (b) With respect to the Public Debt, the next interest payment thereunder is due on March 1, 2001. New Fluor shall be responsible for its share of interest payments due on the Public Debt between the last date interest was paid on the Public Debt, September 1, 2000 through and including the Distribution Date (the "New Fluor Share"). Massey shall be responsible for interest payments due on the Public Debt following the Distribution Date and thereafter. Massey will be responsible for the interest payment due on the Public Debt on March 1, 2001, provided New Fluor shall reimburse Massey for the New Fluor Share. New Fluor shall pay the New Fluor Share within 10 days following receipt of an invoice therefor from Massey, such invoice not due and payable earlier than February 28, 2001. 16 (c) To the extent that the Massey Group had any cash balances as of July 31, 2000, such balances shall be retained by Massey following the Distribution and shall not impact the determination of Cumulative Cash Flow. Section 5.13. Cooperation with SEC Filings. Each party shall ---------------------------- cooperate in providing to the other party information as may be reasonably requested in order to comply with applicable filing requirements under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act. The party providing such information shall ensure that such information is correct and complete in all material respects. Section 5.14 Agreement to Close Books. The Massey Group agrees ------------------------ that it shall close its financial books and records on the Distribution Date, and within fifteen (15) days thereafter report to New Fluor the financial statements for the Massey Group from the day after the last day of the last financial reporting period through the Distribution Date, such financial statements to be prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied and in accordance with existing management practices. Such financial statement shall be subject to audit by Ernst & Young. ARTICLE VI INFORMATION AND SERVICES Section 6.01. Provision of Corporate Records. Each Group shall ------------------------------ arrange as soon as reasonably practicable following the Distribution Date for the provision to the other Group of existing corporate governance documents (e.g. minute books, stock registers, stock certificates, documents of title, etc.) in its possession, if any, relating to such other Group or its business and affairs.

From and after the --------------------- Distribution Date, each Group shall afford the other Group and its accountants, counsel and other designated representatives reasonable access (including using reasonable efforts to give access to persons or firms possessing information) and duplicating rights during normal business hours to all records, books, contacts, instruments, computer data and other data and information in such Group's possession relating to the business and affairs of the other Group, insofar as such access is reasonably required by the other Group, including, without limitation, for audit, accounting, litigation and tax purposes, as well as for purposes of fulfilling disclosure and reporting obligations. Section 6.03. Production of Witnesses. Each Group shall use ----------------------- reasonable efforts to make available to the other Group, upon written request, its officers, directors, employees and agents as witnesses to the extent that such persons may reasonably be required in connection with any legal, administrative or other proceedings in which the requesting party may from time to time be involved. Section 6.04. Reimbursement. A Group providing information or ------------- witnesses under this Article VI to the other Group shall be entitled to receive from the recipient, upon the presentation of invoices therefor, payment for all costs and expenses (including the allocable 17 portion of any overhead expenses attributable thereto) as may be reasonably incurred in providing such information or witnesses. Section 6.05. Retention of Records. Except as otherwise required -------------------- by law or agreed to in writing, each party shall, and shall cause the members of its Group to, retain all information relating to the other Group's business in accordance with the record retention policies of such party as may be in effect from time to time. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any party may destroy or otherwise dispose of any information at any time, provided that, prior to such destruction or disposal, (i) such party shall provide no less than 90 days prior written notice to the other party, specifying the information proposed to be destroyed or disposed of and (ii) if a recipient of such notice shall request in writing prior to the scheduled date for such destruction or disposal that any of the information proposed to be destroyed or disposed of be delivered to such requesting party, the party proposing the destruction or disposal shall promptly arrange for the delivery of such of the information as was requested at the expense of the requesting party.

Each party shall hold and shall --------------- cause its consultants and advisors to hold in strict confidence, unless compelled to disclose by judicial or administrative process or, in the opinion of its counsel, by other requirements of law, all information (other than any such information relating solely to the business or affairs of such party) concerning the other party hereto furnished it by such other party or its representatives pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise (except to the extent that such information can be shown to have been (i) previously known by the party to which it was furnished, (ii) in the public domain through no fault of such party or (iii) later lawfully acquired from other sources by the party to which it was furnished), and each party shall not release or disclose such information to any other person, except its auditors, attorneys, financial advisors, bankers and other consultants and advisors who shall be advised of the provisions of this Section 6.06. Each party shall be deemed to have satisfied its obligation to hold confidential information concerning or supplied by the other party if it exercises the same care as it takes to preserve confidentiality for its own similar information. Section 6.07. Information and Services Relating to Taxes. The ------------------------------------------ provisions of Sections 6.02, 6.04 and 6.05 hereof shall not apply to the extent any matter addressed therein is addressed by any provision of the Tax Sharing Agreement, and such provision of the Tax Sharing Agreement shall govern such matters exclusively for all purposes.

With regard to the Fluor Executive Plans, those Fluor Executive Plans listed on Schedule 7.03(a)(i), together with all related assets and liabilities, will be assigned from Parent to New Fluor. Those Fluor Executive Plans listed on Schedule 7.03(a)(ii), which include Parent stock as a form of benefit, will remain with the Parent. Those Fluor Executive Plans listed on Schedule 7.03(a)(iii) which cover executives of both the New Fluor Group and the Massey Group will be partitioned into two plans, with the assets and liabilities attributable to current and former Fluor executives being transferred to New Fluor and the assets and liabilities attributable to current and former Massey Group executives remaining with the Parent. The grantor trust established by Parent and any insurance policy(ies) funded by Parent to provide for payment of benefits to current or former Parent executives shall be transferred to New Fluor. Any insurance policy(ies) funded by Parent or any of its subsidiaries to provide for payment of benefits to current or former Massey Group executives shall be retained by Parent. The indemnification provisions set forth in Sections 7.05 and 7.06 shall apply to the Fluor Plans whether such Fluor Plans are assigned to New Fluor or remain with the Parent. (b) Except as provided otherwise in Section 10.01(b), any stock options on Parent stock held by persons currently or formerly employed by the Massey Group shall remain subject to the applicable plan under which such options were granted, and shall be adjusted in a manner consistent with FASB Emerging Issues Task Force Issue 90-9 to constitute solely options for Parent's Common Stock.

Parent restricted stock and restricted units held by non-employee directors who are directors of both Parent and New Fluor immediately following the Distribution Date shall be adjusted in a manner consistent with FASB Emerging Issues Task Force Issue 90-9 so that a director has a corresponding number of shares of Parent restricted stock and New Fluor restricted stock and a corresponding number of share equivalents of Parent restricted units and New Fluor restricted units. 19 (d) Prior to the Distribution Date, Parent shall cause New Fluor to adopt the Fluor 2000 Executive Incentive Performance Plan and the Fluor Stock Plan for Non-Employee Directors, and Parent shall approve such plans as sole stockholder of New Fluor. Section 7.04. Master Trust Changes.

Not later than the Distribution Date, the Massey Group shall establish the Massey Master Trust. The assets of the Massey Defined Benefit Plans to be transferred from the Fluor Master Trust to the Massey Master Trust shall be determined in accordance with and based upon the current asset allocation and the valuation policies and practices currently being used by the Fluor Master Trust, with the value being determined as of the end of the month immediately preceding or coinciding with the Distribution Date. To the extent reasonably practicable, the assets shall be transferred in kind and the transfer shall be completed within sixty (60) days following the Distribution Date. Any increase or decrease during the period between the Valuation Date and the Transfer Date in the value of the assets to be transferred as described above, including any income or loss derived from such assets during such period, shall be for the account of the Massey Master Trust. New Fluor and Parent shall each use diligent efforts to cause the transfers contemplated above to be accomplished on an expeditious basis. On and after the Distribution Date, Parent shall cease to be the grantor of the Fluor Master Trust and New Fluor shall be substituted in its place in accordance with the terms of the Fluor Master Trust.

New Fluor shall ---------------------------- indemnify and hold harmless the Massey Indemnified Parties from and against: (a) All Losses relating to, or arising out of, or due to, directly or indirectly, (i) the management or investment of assets of any of the Fluor Plans with respect to all periods prior to and after the Distribution Date; excluding losses relating to the management or investment, after the Distribution Date, of assets relating to Massey Group participants or beneficiaries or (ii) claims by Massey Group participants or beneficiaries regarding the management or investment of the Massey Defined Benefit Plans prior to the Transfer Date for the period of time in which such plans were part of the Fluor Master Trust.

ARTICLE VIII INTERCOMPANY AGREEMENTS Section 8.01. Termination. Without prejudice to any claims ----------- thereunder based upon occurrences prior to the Distribution Date or any confidentiality obligations thereunder, Parent and New Fluor hereby agree that each the agreements described in Schedule 8.01 will, effective as of the Distribution Date, be terminated and of no effect thereafter (it being acknowledged by Parent and New Fluor that, except as specified herein and as may have been 21 entered into in the ordinary course of business, there are no other material agreements between Parent and New Fluor). ARTICLE IX TERMINATION; SURVIVAL Section 9.01. Termination. This Agreement may be terminated ----------- at any time prior to the Distribution upon a resolution to such effect passed by the board of directors of Parent. Section 9.02. Survival. The respective obligations of the -------- parties hereto shall survive the Distribution Date. ARTICLE X MISCELLANEOUS Section 10.01. Expenses. Except as otherwise specifically set -------- forth below, all costs and expenses incurred in connection with the preparation, execution and delivery of this Agreement and with the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby (collectively, the "Transaction Expenses") are described on and shall be borne in accordance with Schedule 10.01 to this Agreement. (a) Within ten (10) days following the Distribution, and as more particularly described in the Proxy Statement, Massey intends to offer its employees (other than Don L. Blankenship) who hold Options the opportunity to surrender their Options in exchange for a cash payment. In the event that a holder of an Option elects to surrender his or her Options, such Option holder will be entitled to an amount equal to one-third of the present value of that person's Options as calculated using the Black-Scholes option value methodology (the "Cash Payment"). If accepted by an Option holder, the Cash Payment obligation would be payable over three equal annual installments with the first installment of the Cash Payment paid on the first anniversary of the Distribution Date, subject to forfeiture to the extent the option holder's employment with Parent terminates for a reason other than retirement or permanent disability prior to the date an installment is to be paid. New Fluor agrees that it shall be responsible for the Cash Payment to any Massey Option holders who elect to surrender their Options as described above subject to the following: (i) within sixty (60) days following the Distribution Date, Massey shall deliver to New Fluor a list of its Option holders who have elected to surrender their Options, the amount of Options surrendered and, subject to New Fluor's reasonable approval, the Black Scholes value of the Options surrendered; (ii) Massey's Option surrender program shall be identical to that which is described in the Proxy and to the extent of any deviation therefrom which results in increased or accelerated liability to New Fluor, Massey shall bear any such liability; and (iii) as and when a portion of the Cash Payment is due to Massey employees who elected to surrender Options, Massey will invoice New Fluor for the amounts so due, such invoice not to be due and payable earlier than the payment date for the applicable portion of the Cash Payment. 22 (b) Pursuant to that certain Amendment to Employment Agreement (the "Blankenship Amendment"), Fluor, Massey, New Fluor and Don L. Blankenship ("Blankenship") have agreed to modify the terms of Blankenship's existing Employment Agreement and Special Successor Development and Retention Program Agreement. New Fluor agrees that to the extent that under the Blankenship Amendment cash payments are due to Blankenship following the Distribution, Massey will make all such cash payments provided that within ten (10) days following receipt of invoice from Massey indicating that such cash payments have been paid to Blankenship, New Fluor will reimburse Massey for such cash payments made to Blankenship. Notwithstanding the preceding, in the event that Blankenship elects to defer any such cash payments due under the Blankenship Amendment by electing to place such cash payments in a deferred compensation program maintained by Massey ("Deferred Amounts"), and to the extent that such Deferred Amounts are placed in a Rabbi Trust maintained by Massey, within ten (10) days following New Fluor's receipt of a statement that Massey has funded the Rabbi Trust with the Deferred Amounts (which invoice shall specify the amount so funded, not to exceed $2,778,700), New Fluor shall pay to Massey the amounts set forth in such invoice. Section 10.02. Notices. All notices and communications under ------- this Agreement shall be in writing and any communication or delivery hereunder shall be deemed to have been duly given (i) when delivered, if delivered in person, or (ii) two days following the date on which the notice or communication is sent, if sent by first class mail or by other commercially reasonable means of written communication (including delivery by an internationally recognized courier service) addressed as follows: If to Massey, to: Massey Energy Company Four North 4th Street Richmond, Virginia 23219 Attention: General Counsel If to New Fluor, to: Fluor Corporation One Enterprise Drive Aliso Viejo, California 92656-2606 Attention: General Counsel Any party may, by written notice so delivered to the other party, change the address to which delivery of any notice shall thereafter be made.
