         1. Purpose. The purpose of this 1997 Incentive Compensation Plan (the
'Plan') is to assist SportsLine.Com, Inc. (the 'Company') and its subsidiaries
in attracting, motivating, retaining and rewarding high-quality executives and
other employees, officers, Directors and independent contractors enabling such
persons to acquire or increase a proprietary interest in the Company in order to
strengthen the mutuality of interests between such persons and the Company's
stockholders, and providing such persons with annual and long term performance
incentives to expend their maximum efforts in the creation of shareholder value.
The Plan is also intended to qualify certain compensation awarded under the Plan
for tax deductibility under Section 162(m) of the Code (as hereafter defined) to
the extent deemed appropriate by the Committee (or any successor committee) of
the Board of Directors of the Company.

by the Committee; provided, however, that except as otherwise expressly provided
in this Plan or in order to comply with Code Section 162(m) or Rule 16b-3 under
the Exchange Act, the Board may exercise any power or authority granted to the

authority, in each case subject to and consistent with the provisions of the
Plan, to select Eligible Persons to become Participants, grant Awards, determine
the type, number and other terms and conditions of, and all other matters
relating to, Awards, prescribe Award agreements (which need not be identical for
each Participant) and rules and regulations for the administration of the Plan,
construe and interpret the Plan and Award agreements and correct defects, supply
omissions or reconcile inconsistencies therein, and to make all other decisions
and determinations as the Committee or the Board may deem necessary or advisable

                                       4


shall not be required to follow past practices, act in a manner consistent with
past practices, or treat any Eligible Person in a manner consistent with the
treatment of other Eligible Persons.

                  (b) Manner of Exercise of Committee Authority. The Committee,
and not the Board, shall exercise sole and exclusive discretion on any matter
relating to a Participant then subject to Section 16 of the Exchange Act with
respect to the Company to the extent necessary in order that transactions by
such Participant shall be exempt under Rule 16b-3 under the Exchange Act. Any
action of the Committee or the Board shall be final, conclusive and binding on
all persons, including the Company, its subsidiaries, Participants,
Beneficiaries, transferees under Section 10(b) hereof or other persons claiming
rights from or through a Participant, and stockholders. The express grant of any
specific power to the Committee or the Board, and the taking of any action by
the Committee or the Board, shall not be construed as limiting any power or
authority of the Committee or the Board. The Committee or the Board may delegate
to officers or managers of the Company or any subsidiary, or committees thereof,
the authority, subject to such terms as the Committee or the Board shall
determine, (i) to perform administrative functions, (ii) with respect to
Participants not subject to Section 16 of the Exchange Act, to perform such
other functions as the Committee or the Board may determine, and (iii) with
respect to Participants subject to Section 16, to perform such other functions
of the Committee or the Board as the Committee or the Board may determine to the
extent performance of such functions will not result in the loss of an exemption
under Rule 16b-3 otherwise available for transactions by such persons, in each
case to the extent permitted under applicable law and subject to the
requirements set forth in Section 8(d). The Committee or the Board may appoint
agents to assist it in administering the Plan

                  (c) Limitation of Liability. The Committee and the Board, and
each member thereof, shall be entitled to, in good faith, rely or act upon any
report or other information furnished to him or her by any executive officer,
other officer or employee of the Company or a Subsidiary, the Company's
independent auditors, consultants or any other agents assisting in the
administration of the Plan. Members of the Committee and the Board, and any
officer or employee of the Company or a subsidiary acting at the direction or on
behalf of the Committee or the Board, shall not be personally liable for any
action or determination taken or made in good faith with respect to the Plan,
and shall, to the extent permitted by law, be fully indemnified and protected by
the Company with respect to any such action or determination.

         4.       Stock Subject to Plan.

                  (a) Limitation on Overall Number of Shares Subject to Awards.
Subject to adjustment as provided in Section 10(c) hereof, the total number of
shares of Stock reserved and available for delivery in connection with Awards
under the Plan shall be the sum of (i) 5,500,000, plus (ii) the number of shares
with respect to Awards previously granted under the Plan that terminate without
being exercised, expire, are forfeited or canceled, and the number of shares of
Stock that are surrendered in payment of any Awards or any tax withholding with
regard thereto. Any shares of Stock delivered under the Plan may consist, in
whole or in part, of authorized and unissued shares or treasury shares. Subject
to adjustment as provided in Section 10(c) hereof, in no event shall the
aggregate number of shares of Stock which may be issued pursuant to ISOs exceed
1,500,000 shares.


                                       5


                  (b) Application of Limitations. The limitation contained in
Section 4(a) shall apply not only to Awards that are settleable by the delivery
of shares of Stock but also to Awards relating to shares of Stock but settleable
only in cash (such as cash-only SARs). The Committee or the Board may adopt
reasonable counting procedures to ensure appropriate counting, avoid double
counting (as, for example, in the case of tandem or substitute awards) and make
adjustments if the number of shares of Stock actually delivered differs from the
number of shares previously counted in connection with an Award.

         5.       Eligibility; Per-Person Award Limitations. Awards may be 
granted under the Plan only to Eligible Persons. In each fiscal year during any
part of which the Plan is in effect, an Eligible Person may not be granted
Awards relating to more than 250,000 shares of Stock, subject to adjustment as
provided in Section 10(c), under each of Sections 6(b), 6(c), 6(d), 6(e), 6(f),
6(g), 6(h), 8(b) and 8(c). In addition, the maximum amount that may be earned as
an Annual Incentive Award or other cash Award in any fiscal year by any one
Participant shall be $2,000,000, and the maximum amount that may be earned as a
Performance Award or other cash Award in respect of a performance period by any
one Participant shall be $5,000,000.

         6.       Specific Terms of Awards.

                  (a) General. Awards may be granted on the terms and conditions
set forth in this Section 6. In addition, the Committee or the Board may impose
on any Award or the exercise thereof, at the date of grant or thereafter
(subject to Section 10(e)), such additional terms and conditions, not
inconsistent with the provisions of the Plan, as the Committee or the Board
shall determine, including terms requiring forfeiture of Awards in the event of
termination of employment by the Participant and terms permitting a Participant
to make elections relating to his or her Award. The Committee or the Board shall
retain full power and discretion to accelerate, waive or modify, at any time,
any term or condition of an Award that is not mandatory under the Plan. Except
in cases in which the Committee or the Board is authorized to require other
forms of consideration under the Plan, or to the extent other forms of
consideration must be paid to satisfy the requirements of Delaware law, no
consideration other than services may be required for the grant (but not the
exercise) of any Award.

                  (b)      Options.   The Committee and the Board each is 
authorized to grant Options to Participants on the following terms and
conditions:

                           (i) Exercise Price. The exercise price per share of
                  Stock purchasable under an Option shall be determined by the
                  Committee or the Board, provided that such exercise price
                  shall not, in the case of Incentive Stock Options, be less
                  than 100% of the Fair Market Value of the Stock on the date of
                  grant of the Option and shall not, in any event, be less than
                  the par value of a share of Stock on the date of grant of such
                  Option. If an employee owns or is deemed to own (by reason of
                  the attribution rules applicable under Section 424(d) of the
                  Code) more than 10% of the combined voting power of all
                  classes of stock of the Company or any Parent Corporation and
                  an Incentive Stock Option is granted to such employee, the
                  option price of such Incentive Stock Option (to the extent
                  required 


                                       6


                  by the Code at the time of grant) shall be no less
                  than 110% of the Fair Market Value of the Stock on the date
                  such Incentive Stock Option is granted.

                           (ii) Time and Method of Exercise. The Committee or
                  the Board shall determine the time or times at which or the
                  circumstances under which an Option may be exercised in whole
                  or in part (including based on achievement of performance
                  goals and/or future service requirements), the time or times
                  at which Options shall cease to be or become exercisable
                  following termination of employment or upon other conditions,
                  the methods by which such exercise price may be paid or deemed
                  to be paid (including in the discretion of the Committee or
                  the Board a cashless exercise procedure), the form of such
                  payment, including, without limitation, cash, Stock, other
                  Awards or awards granted under other plans of the Company or
                  any subsidiary, or other property (including notes or other
                  contractual obligations of Participants to make payment on a
                  deferred basis), and the methods by or forms in which Stock
                  will be delivered or deemed to be delivered to Participants.

                           (iii) ISOs. The terms of any ISO granted under the
                  Plan shall comply in all respects with the provisions of
                  Section 422 of the Code. Anything in the Plan to the contrary
                  notwithstanding, no term of the Plan relating to ISOs
                  (including any SAR in tandem therewith) shall be interpreted,
                  amended or altered, nor shall any discretion or authority
                  granted under the Plan be exercised, so as to disqualify
                  either the Plan or any ISO under Section 422 of the Code,
                  unless the Participant has first requested the change that
                  will result in such disqualification. Thus, if and to the
                  extent required to comply with Section 422 of the Code,
                  Options granted as Incentive Stock Options shall be subject to
                  the following special terms and conditions:

                                    (A) the Option shall not be exercisable more
                  than ten years after the date such Incentive Stock Option is
                  granted; provided, however, that if a Participant owns or is
                  deemed to own (by reason of the attribution rules of Section
                  424(d) of the Code) more than 10% of the combined voting power
                  of all classes of stock of the Company or any Parent
                  Corporation and the Incentive Stock Option is granted to such
                  Participant, the term of the Incentive Stock Option shall be
                  (to the extent required by the Code at the time of the grant)
                  for no more than five years from the date of grant; and

                                    (B) The aggregate Fair Market Value
                  (determined as of the date the Incentive Stock Option is
                  granted) of the shares of stock with respect to which
                  Incentive Stock Options granted under the Plan and all other
                  option plans of the Company or its Parent Corporation during
                  any calendar year exercisable for the first time by the
                  Participant during any calendar year shall not (to the extent
                  required by the Code at the time of the grant) exceed
                  $100,000.

                           (iv) Formula Grants of Options to Non-Employee
                  Directors. Each Non-Employee Director, other than a
                  Non-Employee Director who is, or is an affiliate or 


                                       7


                  designee of, a Beneficial Owner of more than 5% of the Company
                  Voting Securities Outstanding (as defined in Section 9(b)(i)),
                  shall receive on such Non-Employee Director's Initial Grant
                  Date an Option to purchase 12,000 shares of Stock. In
                  addition, each Non-Employee Director shall receive on each
                  Annual Meeting Date thereafter, an Option to purchase 3,000
                  shares of Stock. Options granted to Non-Employee Directors
                  pursuant to this Section shall be for a term of 10 years and
                  shall become exercisable at the rate of 25% per year
                  commencing on the first anniversary of the date on which the
                  Option is granted; provided, however, that the Options shall
                  be fully exercisable in the event that, while serving as a
                  Director, the Non-Employee Director dies, suffers a
                  Disability, or Retires. The per share exercise price of all
                  Options granted to Non-Employee Directors pursuant to this
                  paragraph (iv) shall be equal to the Fair Market Value of a
                  share of Stock on the date such Option is granted. Unless
                  otherwise extended in the sole discretion of the Committee,
                  the unexercised portion of any Option granted pursuant to this
                  paragraph (iv) shall become null and void (V) three months
                  after the date on which such Non-Employee Director ceases to
                  be a Director of the Company for any reason other than the
                  Non-Employee Director's wilful misconduct or negligence,
                  Disability, death or Retirement, (W) immediately in the event
                  of the Non-Employee Director's wilful misconduct or
                  negligence, (X) one year after the Non-Employee Director
                  ceases to be a Director by reason of his Disability, (Y) at
                  the expiration of its original term, if the Non-Employee
                  Director ceases to be a Director by reason of his Retirement,
                  and (Z) twelve months after the date of the Non-Employee
                  Director's death in the event that such death occurs prior to
                  the time the Option otherwise would become null and void
                  pursuant to this sentence.

                           (v) Repricing. Except for adjustments pursuant to
                  Section 10(c) (relating to the adjustment of shares of Stock),
                  the exercise price per share of Stock purchasable under an
                  Option may not be decreased after the date of the grant of the
                  Option nor may an outstanding Option granted under the Plan be
                  surrendered to the Company as consideration for the grant of a
                  new Option with a lower exercise price.

                  (c)      Stock  Appreciation  Rights.  The Committee and the 
Board each is authorized to grant SAR's to Participants on the following terms
and conditions:

                           (i) Right to Payment. A SAR shall confer on the
                  Participant to whom it is granted a right to receive, upon
                  exercise thereof, the excess of (A) the Fair Market Value of
                  one share of stock on the date of exercise (or, in the case of
                  a 'Limited SAR' that may be exercised only in the event of a
                  Change in Control, the Fair Market Value determined by
                  reference to the Change in Control Price, as defined under
                  Section 9(c) hereof), over (B) the grant price of the SAR as
                  determined by the Committee or the Board. The grant price of
                  an SAR shall not be less than the Fair Market Value of a share
                  of Stock on the date of grant except as provided under Section
                  7(a) hereof.

                           (ii) Other Terms. The Committee or the Board shall
                  determine at the date of grant or thereafter, the time or
                  times at which and the circumstances under which a SAR may be
                  exercised in whole or in part (including based on 


                                       8


                  achievement of performance goals and/or future service
                  requirements), the time or times at which SARs shall cease to
                  be or become exercisable following termination of employment
                  or upon other conditions, the method of exercise, method of
                  settlement, form of consideration payable in settlement,
                  method by or forms in which Stock will be delivered or deemed
                  to be delivered to Participants, whether or not a SAR shall be
                  in tandem or in combination with any other Award, and any
                  other terms and conditions of any SAR. Limited SARs that may
                  only be exercised in connection with a Change in Control or
                  other event as specified by the Committee or the Board, may be
                  granted on such terms, not inconsistent with this Section
                  6(c), as the Committee or the Board may determine. SARs and
                  Limited SARs may be either freestanding or in tandem with
                  other Awards.

                  (d)      Restricted  Stock.  The Committee and the Board each 
is authorized to grant Restricted Stock to Participants on the following terms
and conditions:

                           (i) Grant and Restrictions. Restricted Stock shall be
                  subject to such restrictions on transferability, risk of
                  forfeiture and other restrictions, if any, as the Committee or
                  the Board may impose, which restrictions may lapse separately
                  or in combination at such times, under such circumstances
                  (including based on achievement of performance goals and/or
                  future service requirements), in such installments or
                  otherwise, as the Committee or the Board may determine at the
                  date of grant or thereafter. Except to the extent restricted
                  under the terms of the Plan and any Award agreement relating
                  to the Restricted Stock, a Participant granted Restricted
                  Stock shall have all of the rights of a stockholder, including
                  the right to vote the Restricted Stock and the right to
                  receive dividends thereon (subject to any mandatory
                  reinvestment or other requirement imposed by the Committee or
                  the Board). During the restricted period applicable to the
                  Restricted Stock, subject to Section 10(b) below, the
                  Restricted Stock may not be sold, transferred, pledged,
                  hypothecated, margined or otherwise encumbered by the
                  Participant.

                           (ii) Forfeiture. Except as otherwise determined by
                  the Committee or the Board at the time of the Award, upon
                  termination of a Participant's employment during the
                  applicable restriction period, the Participant's Restricted
                  Stock that is at that time subject to restrictions shall be
                  forfeited and reacquired by the Company; provided that the
                  Committee or the Board may provide, by rule or regulation or
                  in any Award agreement, or may determine in any individual
                  case, that restrictions or forfeiture conditions relating to
                  Restricted Stock shall be waived in whole or in part in the
                  event of terminations resulting from specified causes, and the
                  Committee or the Board may in other cases waive in whole or in
                  part the forfeiture of Restricted Stock.

                           (iii) Certificates for Stock. Restricted Stock
                  granted under the Plan may be evidenced in such manner as the
                  Committee or the Board shall determine. If certificates
                  representing Restricted Stock are registered in the name of
                  the Participant, the Committee or the Board may require that
                  such certificates bear an 


                                       9


                  appropriate legend referring to the terms, conditions and
                  restrictions applicable to such Restricted Stock, that the
                  Company retain physical possession of the certificates, and
                  that the Participant deliver a stock power to the Company,
                  endorsed in blank, relating to the Restricted Stock.

                           (iv) Dividends and Splits. As a condition to the
                  grant of an Award of Restricted Stock, the Committee or the
                  Board may require that any cash dividends paid on a share of
                  Restricted Stock be automatically reinvested in additional
                  shares of Restricted Stock or applied to the purchase of
                  additional Awards under the Plan. Unless otherwise determined
                  by the Committee or the Board, Stock distributed in connection
                  with a Stock split or Stock dividend, and other property
                  distributed as a dividend, shall be subject to restrictions
                  and a risk of forfeiture to the same extent as the Restricted
                  Stock with respect to which such Stock or other property has
                  been distributed.

                  (e) Deferred Stock. The Committee and the Board each is
authorized to grant Deferred Stock to Participants, which are rights to receive
Stock, cash, or a combination thereof at the end of a specified deferral period,
subject to the following terms and conditions:

                           (i) Award and Restrictions. Satisfaction of an Award
                  of Deferred Stock shall occur upon expiration of the deferral
                  period specified for such Deferred Stock by the Committee or
                  the Board (or, if permitted by the Committee or the Board, as
                  elected by the Participant). In addition, Deferred Stock shall
                  be subject to such restrictions (which may include a risk of
                  forfeiture) as the Committee or the Board may impose, if any,
                  which restrictions may lapse at the expiration of the deferral
                  period or at earlier specified times (including based on
                  achievement of performance goals and/or future service
                  requirements), separately or in combination, in installments
                  or otherwise, as the Committee or the Board may determine.
                  Deferred Stock may be satisfied by delivery of Stock, cash
                  equal to the Fair Market Value of the specified number of
                  shares of Stock covered by the Deferred Stock, or a
                  combination thereof, as determined by the Committee or the
                  Board at the date of grant or thereafter. Prior to
                  satisfaction of an Award of Deferred Stock, an Award of
                  Deferred Stock carries no voting or dividend or other rights
                  associated with share ownership.

                           (ii) Forfeiture. Except as otherwise determined by
                  the Committee or the Board, upon termination of a
                  Participant's employment during the applicable deferral period
                  thereof to which forfeiture conditions apply (as provided in
                  the Award agreement evidencing the Deferred Stock), the
                  Participant's Deferred Stock that is at that time subject to
                  deferral (other than a deferral at the election of the
                  Participant) shall be forfeited; provided that the Committee
                  or the Board may provide, by rule or regulation or in any
                  Award agreement, or may determine in any individual case, that
                  restrictions or forfeiture conditions relating to Deferred
                  Stock shall be waived in whole or in part in the event of
                  terminations resulting from specified causes, and the
                  Committee or the Board may in other cases waive in whole or in
                  part the forfeiture of Deferred Stock.


                                       10


                           (iii) Dividend Equivalents. Unless otherwise
                  determined by the Committee or the Board at date of grant,
                  Dividend Equivalents on the specified number of shares of
                  Stock covered by an Award of Deferred Stock shall be either
                  (A) paid with respect to such Deferred Stock at the dividend
                  payment date in cash or in shares of unrestricted Stock having
                  a Fair Market Value equal to the amount of such dividends, or
                  (B) deferred with respect to such Deferred Stock and the
                  amount or value thereof automatically deemed reinvested in
                  additional Deferred Stock, other Awards or other investment
                  vehicles, as the Committee or the Board shall determine or
                  permit the Participant to elect.

                  (f) Bonus Stock and Awards in Lieu of Obligations. The
Committee and the Board each is authorized to grant Stock as a bonus, or to
grant Stock or other Awards in lieu of Company obligations to pay cash or
deliver other property under the Plan or under other plans or compensatory
arrangements, provided that, in the case of Participants subject to Section 16
of the Exchange Act, the amount of such grants remains within the discretion of
the Committee to the extent necessary to ensure that acquisitions of Stock or
other Awards are exempt from liability under Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act.
Stock or Awards granted hereunder shall be subject to such other terms as shall
be determined by the Committee or the Board.

                  (g) Dividend Equivalents. The Committee and the Board each is
authorized to grant Dividend Equivalents to a Participant entitling the
Participant to receive cash, Stock, other Awards, or other property equal in
value to dividends paid with respect to a specified number of shares of Stock,
or other periodic payments. Dividend Equivalents may be awarded on a
free-standing basis or in connection with another Award. The Committee or the
Board may provide that Dividend Equivalents shall be paid or distributed when
accrued or shall be deemed to have been reinvested in additional Stock, Awards,
or other investment vehicles, and subject to such restrictions on
transferability and risks of forfeiture, as the Committee or the Board may
specify.

                  (h) Other Stock-Based Awards. The Committee and the Board each
is authorized, subject to limitations under applicable law, to grant to
Participants such other Awards that may be denominated or payable in, valued in
whole or in part by reference to, or otherwise based on, or related to, Stock,
as deemed by the Committee or the Board to be consistent with the purposes of
the Plan, including, without limitation, convertible or exchangeable debt
securities, other rights convertible or exchangeable into Stock, purchase rights
for Stock, Awards with value and payment contingent upon performance of the
Company or any other factors designated by the Committee or the Board, and
Awards valued by reference to the book value of Stock or the value of securities
of or the performance of specified subsidiaries or business units. The Committee
or the Board shall determine the terms and conditions of such Awards. Stock
delivered pursuant to an Award in the nature of a purchase right granted under
this Section 6(h) shall be purchased for such consideration, paid for at such
times, by such methods, and in such forms, including, without limitation, cash,
Stock, other Awards or other property, as the Committee or the Board shall
determine. Cash awards, as an element of or supplement to any other Award under
the Plan, may also be granted pursuant to this Section 6(h).


                                       11


         7.       Certain Provisions Applicable to Awards.

                  (a) Stand-Alone, Additional, Tandem, and Substitute Awards.
Awards granted under the Plan may, in the discretion of the Committee or the
Board, be granted either alone or in addition to, in tandem with, or in
substitution or exchange for, any other Award or any award granted under another
plan of the Company, any subsidiary, or any business entity to be acquired by
the Company or a subsidiary, or any other right of a Participant to receive
payment from the Company or any subsidiary. Such additional, tandem, and
substitute or exchange Awards may be granted at any time. If an Award is granted
in substitution or exchange for another Award or award, the Committee or the
Board shall require the surrender of such other Award or award in consideration
for the grant of the new Award. In addition, Awards may be granted in lieu of
cash compensation, including in lieu of cash amounts payable under other plans
of the Company or any subsidiary, in which the value of Stock subject to the
Award is equivalent in value to the cash compensation (for example, Deferred
Stock or Restricted Stock), or in which the exercise price, grant price or
purchase price of the Award in the nature of a right that may be exercised is
equal to the Fair Market Value of the underlying Stock minus the value of the
cash compensation surrendered (for example, Options granted with an exercise
price 'discounted' by the amount of the cash compensation surrendered).

                  (b) Term of Awards. The term of each Award shall be for such
period as may be determined by the Committee or the Board; provided that in no
event shall the term of any Option or SAR exceed a period of ten years (or such
shorter term as may be required in respect of an ISO under Section 422 of the
Code).

                  (c) Form and Timing of Payment Under Awards; Deferrals.
Subject to the terms of the Plan and any applicable Award agreement, payments to
be made by the Company or a subsidiary upon the exercise of an Option or other
Award or settlement of an Award may be made in such forms as the Committee or
the Board shall determine, including, without limitation, cash, Stock, other
Awards or other property, and may be made in a single payment or transfer, in
installments, or on a deferred basis. The settlement of any Award may be
accelerated, and cash paid in lieu of Stock in connection with such settlement,
in the discretion of the Committee or the Board or upon occurrence of one or
more specified events (in addition to a Change in Control). Installment or
deferred payments may be required by the Committee or the Board (subject to
Section 10(e) of the Plan) or permitted at the election of the Participant on
terms and conditions established by the Committee or the Board. Payments may
include, without limitation, provisions for the payment or crediting of a
reasonable interest rate on installment or deferred payments or the grant or
crediting of Dividend Equivalents or other amounts in respect of installment or
deferred payments denominated in Stock.

                  (d) Exemptions from Section 16(b) Liability. It is the intent
of the Company that this Plan comply in all respects with applicable provisions
of Rule 16b-3 or Rule 16a-1(c)(3) to the extent necessary to ensure that neither
the grant of any Awards to nor other transaction by a Participant who is subject
to Section 16 of the Exchange Act is subject to liability under Section 16(b)
thereof (except for transactions acknowledged in writing to be non-exempt by
such Participant). Accordingly, if any provision of this Plan or any Award
agreement does not comply with the requirements of Rule 16b-3 or Rule
16a-1(c)(3) as then applicable to any such 


                                       12


transaction, such provision will be construed or deemed amended to the extent
necessary to conform to the applicable requirements of Rule 16b-3 or Rule
16a-1(c)(3) so that such Participant shall avoid liability under Section 16(b).
In addition, the purchase price of any Award conferring a right to purchase
Stock shall be not less than any specified percentage of the Fair Market Value
of Stock at the date of grant of the Award then required in order to comply with
Rule 16b-3.

         8.       Performance and Annual Incentive Awards.

                  (a) Performance Conditions. The right of a Participant to
exercise or receive a grant or settlement of any Award, and the timing thereof,
may be subject to such performance conditions as may be specified by the
Committee or the Board. The Committee or the Board may use such business
criteria and other measures of performance as it may deem appropriate in
establishing any performance conditions, and may exercise its discretion to
reduce the amounts payable under any Award subject to performance conditions,
except as limited under Sections 8(b) and 8(c) hereof in the case of a
Performance Award or Annual Incentive Award intended to qualify under Code
Section 162(m). If and to the extent required under Code Section 162(m), any
power or authority relating to a Performance Award or Annual Incentive Award
intended to qualify under Code Section 162(m), shall be exercised by the
Committee and not the Board.

                  (b) Performance Awards Granted to Designated Covered
Employees. If and to the extent that the Committee determines that a Performance
Award to be granted to an Eligible Person who is designated by the Committee as
likely to be a Covered Employee should qualify as 'performance-based
compensation' for purposes of Code Section 162(m), the grant, exercise and/or
settlement of such Performance Award shall be contingent upon achievement of
preestablished performance goals and other terms set forth in this Section 8(b).

                           (i) Performance Goals Generally. The performance
                  goals for such Performance Awards shall consist of one or more
                  business criteria and a targeted level or levels of
                  performance with respect to each of such criteria, as
                  specified by the Committee consistent with this Section 8(b).
                  Performance goals shall be objective and shall otherwise meet
                  the requirements of Code Section 162(m) and regulations
                  thereunder including the requirement that the level or levels
                  of performance targeted by the Committee result in the
                  achievement of performance goals being 'substantially
                  uncertain.' The Committee may determine that such Performance
                  Awards shall be granted, exercised and/or settled upon
                  achievement of any one performance goal or that two or more of
                  the performance goals must be achieved as a condition to
                  grant, exercise and/or settlement of such Performance Awards.
                  Performance goals may differ for Performance Awards granted to
                  any one Participant or to different Participants.

                           (ii) Business Criteria. One or more of the following
                  business criteria for the Company, on a consolidated basis,
                  and/or specified subsidiaries or business units of the Company
                  (except with respect to the total stockholder return and
                  earnings per share criteria), shall be used exclusively by the
                  Committee in establishing performance goals for such
                  Performance Awards: (1) total 


                                       13


                  stockholder return; (2) such total stockholder return as
                  compared to total return (on a comparable basis) of a publicly
                  available index such as, but not limited to, the Standard & Poor's 500 Stock Index or the Nasdaq Composite Index; (3) net
                  income; (4) pretax earnings; (5) earnings before interest
                  expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization; (6) pretax
                  operating earnings after interest expense and before bonuses,
                  service fees, and extraordinary or special items; (7)
                  operating margin; (8) earnings per share; (9) return on
                  equity; (10) return on capital; (11) return on investment;
                  (12) operating earnings; (13) working capital or inventory;
                  and (14) ratio of debt to stockholders' equity. One or more of
                  the foregoing business criteria shall also be exclusively used
                  in establishing performance goals for Annual Incentive Awards
                  granted to a Covered Employee under Section 8(c) hereof that
                  are intended to qualify as 'performance-based compensation'
                  under Code Section 162(m).

                           (iii) Performance Period; Timing For Establishing
                  Performance Goals. Achievement of performance goals in respect
                  of such Performance Awards shall be measured over a
                  performance period of up to ten years, as specified by the
                  Committee. Performance goals shall be established not later
                  than 90 days after the beginning of any performance period
                  applicable to such Performance Awards, or at such other date
                  as may be required or permitted for 'performance-based
                  compensation' under Code Section 162(m).

                           (iv) Performance Award Pool. The Committee may
                  establish a Performance Award pool, which shall be an unfunded
                  pool, for purposes of measuring Company performance in
                  connection with Performance Awards. The amount of such
                  Performance Award pool shall be based upon the achievement of
                  a performance goal or goals based on one or more of the
                  business criteria set forth in Section 8(b)(ii) hereof during
                  the given performance period, as specified by the Committee in
                  accordance with Section 8(b)(iii) hereof. The Committee may
                  specify the amount of the Performance Award pool as a
                  percentage of any of such business criteria, a percentage
                  thereof in excess of a threshold amount, or as another amount
                  which need not bear a strictly mathematical relationship to
                  such business criteria.

                           (v) Settlement of Performance Awards; Other Terms.
                  Settlement of such Performance Awards shall be in cash, Stock,
                  other Awards or other property, in the discretion of the
                  Committee. The Committee may, in its discretion, reduce the
                  amount of a settlement otherwise to be made in connection with
                  such Performance Awards. The Committee shall specify the
                  circumstances in which such Performance Awards shall be paid
                  or forfeited in the event of termination of employment by the
                  Participant prior to the end of a performance period or
                  settlement of Performance Awards.

                  (c) Annual Incentive Awards Granted to Designated Covered
Employees. If and to the extent that the Committee determines that an Annual
Incentive Award to be granted to an Eligible Person who is designated by the
Committee as likely to be a Covered Employee 


                                       14


should qualify as 'performance-based compensation' for purposes of Code Section
162(m), the grant, exercise and/or settlement of such Annual Incentive Award
shall be contingent upon achievement of preestablished performance goals and
other terms set forth in this Section 8(c).

                           (i) Annual Incentive Award Pool. The Committee may
                  establish an Annual Incentive Award pool, which shall be an
                  unfunded pool, for purposes of measuring Company performance
                  in connection with Annual Incentive Awards. The amount of such
                  Annual Incentive Award pool shall be based upon the
                  achievement of a performance goal or goals based on one or
                  more of the business criteria set forth in Section 8(b)(ii)
                  hereof during the given performance period, as specified by
                  the Committee in accordance with Section 8(b)(iii) hereof. The
                  Committee may specify the amount of the Annual Incentive Award
                  pool as a percentage of any such business criteria, a
                  percentage thereof in excess of a threshold amount, or as
                  another amount which need not bear a strictly mathematical
                  relationship to such business criteria.

                           (ii) Potential Annual Incentive Awards. Not later
                  than the end of the 90th day of each fiscal year, or at such
                  other date as may be required or permitted in the case of
                  Awards intended to be 'performance-based compensation' under
                  Code Section 162(m), the Committee shall determine the
                  Eligible Persons who will potentially receive Annual Incentive
                  Awards, and the amounts potentially payable thereunder, for
                  that fiscal year, either out of an Annual Incentive Award pool
                  established by such date under Section 8(c)(i) hereof or as
                  individual Annual Incentive Awards. In the case of individual
                  Annual Incentive Awards intended to qualify under Code Section
                  162(m), the amount potentially payable shall be based upon the
                  achievement of a performance goal or goals based on one or
                  more of the business criteria set forth in Section 8(b)(ii)
                  hereof in the given performance year, as specified by the
                  Committee; in other cases, such amount shall be based on such
                  criteria as shall be established by the Committee. In all
                  cases, the maximum Annual Incentive Award of any Participant
                  shall be subject to the limitation set forth in Section 5
                  hereof.

                           (iii) Payout of Annual Incentive Awards. After the
                  end of each fiscal year, the Committee shall determine the
                  amount, if any, of (A) the Annual Incentive Award pool, and
                  the maximum amount of potential Annual Incentive Award payable
                  to each Participant in the Annual Incentive Award pool, or (B)
                  the amount of potential Annual Incentive Award otherwise
                  payable to each Participant. The Committee may, in its
                  discretion, determine that the amount payable to any
                  Participant as a final Annual Incentive Award shall be reduced
                  from the amount of his or her potential Annual Incentive
                  Award, including a determination to make no final Award
                  whatsoever. The Committee shall specify the circumstances in
                  which an Annual Incentive Award shall be paid or forfeited in
                  the event of termination of employment by the Participant
                  prior to the end of a fiscal year or settlement of such Annual
                  Incentive Award.



                                       15


                  (d) Written Determinations. All determinations by the
Committee as to the establishment of performance goals, the amount of any
Performance Award pool or potential individual Performance Awards and as to the
achievement of performance goals relating to Performance Awards under Section
8(b), and the amount of any Annual Incentive Award pool or potential individual
Annual Incentive Awards and the amount of final Annual Incentive Awards under
Section 8(c), shall be made in writing in the case of any Award intended to
qualify under Code Section 162(m). The Committee may not delegate any
responsibility relating to such Performance Awards or Annual Incentive Awards if
and to the extent required to comply with Code Section 162(m).

                  (e) Status of Section 8(b) and Section 8(c) Awards Under Code
Section 162(m). It is the intent of the Company that Performance Awards and
Annual Incentive Awards under Section 8(b) and 8(c) hereof granted to persons
who are designated by the Committee as likely to be Covered Employees within the
meaning of Code Section 162(m) and regulations thereunder shall, if so
designated by the Committee, constitute 'qualified performance-based
compensation' within the meaning of Code Section 162(m) and regulations
thereunder. Accordingly, the terms of Sections 8(b), (c), (d) and (e), including
the definitions of Covered Employee and other terms used therein, shall be
interpreted in a manner consistent with Code Section 162(m) and regulations
thereunder. The foregoing notwithstanding, because the Committee cannot
determine with certainty whether a given Participant will be a Covered Employee
with respect to a fiscal year that has not yet been completed, the term Covered
Employee as used herein shall mean only a person designated by the Committee, at
the time of grant of Performance Awards or an Annual Incentive Award, as likely
to be a Covered Employee with respect to that fiscal year. If any provision of
the Plan or any agreement relating to such Performance Awards or Annual
Incentive Awards does not comply or is inconsistent with the requirements of
Code Section 162(m) or regulations thereunder, such provision shall be construed
or deemed amended to the extent necessary to conform to such requirements.

         9.       Change in Control.

                  (a) Effect of 'Change in Control.' If and to the extent
provided in the Award, in the event of a 'Change in Control,' as defined in
Section 9(b), the following provisions shall apply:
                           (i) Any Award carrying a right to exercise that was
                  not previously exercisable and vested shall become fully
                  exercisable and vested as of the time of the Change in
                  Control, subject only to applicable restrictions set forth in
                  Section 10(a) hereof;

                            (ii) Limited SARs (and other SARs if so provided by
                  their terms) shall become exercisable for amounts, in cash,
                  determined by reference to the Change in Control Price;

                           (iii) The restrictions, deferral of settlement, and
                  forfeiture conditions applicable to any other Award granted
                  under the Plan shall lapse and such Awards shall be deemed
                  fully vested as of the time of the Change in Control, except
                  to the 


                                       16


                  extent of any waiver by the Participant and subject to
                  applicable restrictions set forth in Section 10(a) hereof; and

                           (iv) With respect to any such outstanding Award
                  subject to achievement of performance goals and conditions
                  under the Plan, such performance goals and other conditions
                  will be deemed to be met if and to the extent so provided by
                  the Committee in the Award agreement relating to such Award.

                  (b)      Definition of 'Change in Control. A 'Change in 
Control' shall be deemed to have occurred upon:

                           (i)      An  acquisition  by any Person of Beneficial
                  Ownership of the shares of Common Stock of the Company then
                  outstanding (the 'Company Common Stock Outstanding') or the
                  voting securities of the Company then outstanding entitled to
                  vote generally in the election of directors (the 'Company
                  Voting Securities Outstanding') if such acquisition of
                  Beneficial Ownership results in the Person's Beneficially
                  Owning 25% or more of the Company Common Stock outstanding or
                  25% or more of the combined voting power of the Company Voting
                  Securities Outstanding; or

                           (ii)     Approval by the shareholders of the Company
                  of a reorganization, merger, consolidation or other form of
                  corporate transaction or series of transactions, in each case,
                  with respect to which persons who were the shareholders of the
                  Company immediately prior to such reorganization, merger or
                  consolidation or other transaction do not, immediately
                  thereafter, own more than 50% of the combined voting power
                  entitled to vote generally in the election of directors of the
                  reorganized, merged or consolidated company's then outstanding
                  voting securities, or a liquidation or dissolution of the
                  Company or the sale of all or substantially all of the assets
                  of the Company (unless such reorganization, merger,
                  consolidation or other corporate transaction, liquidation,
                  dissolution or sale (any such event being referred to as a
                  'Corporate Transaction') is subsequently abandoned); or

                           (iii)    A change in the composition of the Board 
                  such that individuals who, as of the date hereof, constitute
                  the Board (as of the date hereof the 'Incumbent Board') cease
                  for any reason to constitute at least a majority of the Board,
                  provided that any person becoming a director subsequent to the
                  date hereof whose election, or nomination for election by the
                  Company's shareholders, was approved by a vote of at least a
                  majority of the directors then comprising the Incumbent Board
                  (other than an election or nomination of an individual whose
                  initial assumption of office is in connection with an actual
                  or threatened election contest relating to the election of the
                  Directors of the Company, as such terms are used in Rule
                  14a-11 of Regulation 14A promulgated under the Securities
                  Exchange Act) shall be, for purposes of this Agreement,
                  considered as though such person were a member of the
                  Incumbent Board.

         Notwithstanding the provisions set forth in subparagraphs (i) and (ii)
of this Section 9(b), any acquisition or consummation of a Corporate Transaction
unanimously approved by the Incumbent Board shall not constitute a Change in
Control for purposes of the Plan.

                  (c) Definition of 'Change in Control Price.' The 'Change in
Control Price' means an amount in cash equal to the higher of (i) the amount of
cash and fair market value of 


                                       17


property that is the highest price per share paid (including extraordinary
dividends) in any Corporate Transaction triggering the Change in Control under
Section 9(b)(i) hereof or any liquidation of shares following a sale of
substantially all of the assets of the Company, or (ii) the highest Fair Market
Value per share at any time during the 60-day period preceding and the 60-day
period following the Change in Control.

         10.      General Provisions.

                  (a) Compliance With Legal and Other Requirements. The Company
may, to the extent deemed necessary or advisable by the Committee or the Board,
postpone the issuance or delivery of Stock or payment of other benefits under
any Award until completion of such registration or qualification of such Stock
or other required action under any federal or state law, rule or regulation,
listing or other required action with respect to any stock exchange or automated
quotation system upon which the Stock or other Company securities are listed or
quoted, or compliance with any other obligation of the Company, as the Committee
or the Board, may consider appropriate, and may require any Participant to make
such representations, furnish such information and comply with or be subject to
such other conditions as it may consider appropriate in connection with the
issuance or delivery of Stock or payment of other benefits in compliance with
applicable laws, rules, and regulations, listing requirements, or other
obligations. The foregoing notwithstanding, in connection with a Change in
Control, the Company shall take or cause to be taken no action, and shall
undertake or permit to arise no legal or contractual obligation, that results or
would result in any postponement of the issuance or delivery of Stock or payment
of benefits under any Award or the imposition of any other conditions on such
issuance, delivery or payment, to the extent that such postponement or other
condition would represent a greater burden on a Participant than existed on the
90th day preceding the Change in Control.

                  (b) Limits on Transferability; Beneficiaries. No Award or
other right or interest of a Participant under the Plan, including any Award or
right which constitutes a derivative security as generally defined in Rule
16a-1(c) under the Exchange Act, shall be pledged, hypothecated or otherwise
encumbered or subject to any lien, obligation or liability of such Participant
to any party (other than the Company or a Subsidiary), or assigned or
transferred by such Participant otherwise than by will or the laws of descent
and distribution or to a Beneficiary upon the death of a Participant, and such
Awards or rights that may be exercisable shall be exercised during the lifetime
of the Participant only by the Participant or his or her guardian or legal
representative, except that Awards and other rights (other than ISOs and SARs in
tandem therewith) may be transferred to one or more Beneficiaries or other
transferees during the lifetime of the Participant, and may be exercised by such
transferees in accordance with the terms of such Award, but only if and to the
extent such transfers and exercises are permitted by the Committee or the Board
pursuant to the express terms of an Award agreement (subject to any terms and
conditions which the Committee or the Board may impose thereon, and further
subject to any prohibitions or restrictions on such transfers pursuant to Rule
16b-3). A Beneficiary, transferee, or other person claiming any rights under the
Plan from or through any Participant shall be subject to all terms and
conditions of the Plan and any Award agreement applicable to such Participant,
except as otherwise determined by the Committee or the Board, and to any
additional terms and conditions deemed necessary or appropriate by the Committee
or the Board.



                                       18


                  (c) Adjustments. In the event that any dividend or other
distribution (whether in the form of cash, Stock, or other property),
recapitalization, forward or reverse split, reorganization, merger,
consolidation, spin-off, combination, repurchase, share exchange, liquidation,
dissolution or other similar corporate transaction or event affects the Stock
such that a substitution or adjustment is determined by the Committee or the
Board to be appropriate in order to prevent dilution or enlargement of the
rights of Participants under the Plan, then the Committee or the Board shall, in
such manner as it may deem equitable, substitute or adjust any or all of (i) the
number and kind of shares of Stock which may be delivered in connection with
Awards granted thereafter, (ii) the number and kind of shares of Stock by which
annual per-person Award limitations are measured under Section 5 hereof, (iii)
the number and kind of shares of Stock subject to or deliverable in respect of
outstanding Awards and (iv) the exercise price, grant price or purchase price
relating to any Award and/or make provision for payment of cash or other
property in respect of any outstanding Award. In addition, the Committee (and
the Board if and only to the extent such authority is not required to be
exercised by the Committee to comply with Code Section 162(m)) is authorized to
make adjustments in the terms and conditions of, and the criteria included in,
Awards (including Performance Awards and performance goals, and Annual Incentive
Awards and any Annual Incentive Award pool or performance goals relating
thereto) in recognition of unusual or nonrecurring events (including, without
limitation, events described in the preceding sentence, as well as acquisitions
and dispositions of businesses and assets) affecting the Company, any Subsidiary
or any business unit, or the financial statements of the Company or any
Subsidiary, or in response to changes in applicable laws, regulations,
accounting principles, tax rates and regulations or business conditions or in
view of the Committee's assessment of the business strategy of the Company, any
Subsidiary or business unit thereof, performance of comparable organizations,
economic and business conditions, personal performance of a Participant, and any
other circumstances deemed relevant; provided that no such adjustment shall be
authorized or made if and to the extent that such authority or the making of
such adjustment would cause Options, SARs, Performance Awards granted under
Section 8(b) hereof or Annual Incentive Awards granted under Section 8(c) hereof
to Participants designated by the Committee as Covered Employees and intended to
qualify as 'performance-based compensation' under Code Section 162(m) and the
regulations thereunder to otherwise fail to qualify as 'performance-based
compensation' under Code Section 162(m) and regulations thereunder.

                  (d) Taxes. The Company and any Subsidiary is authorized to
withhold from any Award granted, any payment relating to an Award under the
Plan, including from a distribution of Stock, or any payroll or other payment to
a Participant, amounts of withholding and other taxes due or potentially payable
in connection with any transaction involving an Award, and to take such other
action as the Committee or the Board may deem advisable to enable the Company
and Participants to satisfy obligations for the payment of withholding taxes and
other tax obligations relating to any Award. This authority shall include
authority to withhold or receive Stock or other property and to make cash
payments in respect thereof in satisfaction of a Participant's tax obligations,
either on a mandatory or elective basis in the discretion of the Committee.

                  (e) Changes to the Plan and Awards. The Board may amend,
alter, suspend, discontinue or terminate the Plan, or the Committee's authority
to grant Awards under the Plan


                                       19


without the consent of stockholders or Participants, except that any amendment
or alteration to the Plan shall be subject to the approval of the Company's
stockholders not later than the annual meeting next following such Board action
if such stockholder approval is required by any federal or state law or
regulation (including, without limitation, Rule 16b-3 or Code Section 162(m)) or
the rules of any stock exchange or automated quotation system on which the Stock
may then be listed or quoted, and the Board may otherwise, in its discretion,
determine to submit other such changes to the Plan to stockholders for approval;
provided that, without the consent of an affected Participant, no such Board
action may materially and adversely affect the rights of such Participant under
any previously granted and outstanding Award; provided, further, that the
provisions of Section 6(b)(v) (relating to Option repricing) may not be amended
without stockholder approval. The Committee or the Board may waive any
conditions or rights under, or amend, alter, suspend, discontinue or terminate
any Award theretofore granted and any Award agreement relating thereto, except
as otherwise provided in the Plan; provided that, without the consent of an
affected Participant, no such Committee or the Board action may materially and
adversely affect the rights of such Participant under such Award.
Notwithstanding anything in the Plan to the contrary, if any right under this
Plan would cause a transaction to be ineligible for pooling of interest
accounting that would, but for the right hereunder, be eligible for such
accounting treatment, the Committee or the Board may modify or adjust the right
so that pooling of interest accounting shall be available, including the
substitution of Stock having a Fair Market Value equal to the cash otherwise
payable hereunder for the right which caused the transaction to be ineligible
for pooling of interest accounting. Notwithstanding anything herein to the
contrary, the provisions of Section 6(b)(iv) of this Plan which govern formula
grants of Options to Non-Employee Directors, shall not be amended more than once
every six months other than to comport with changes to the Code or the rules
promulgated thereunder or the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974,
as amended, or the rules promulgated thereunder, or with rules promulgated by
the Securities and Exchange Commission, unless such limit on amendments is not
required under Rule 16b-3 or other applicable law.

                  (f) Limitation on Rights Conferred Under Plan. Neither the
Plan nor any action taken hereunder shall be construed as (i) giving any
Eligible Person or Participant the right to continue as an Eligible Person or
Participant or in the employ of the Company or a Subsidiary; (ii) interfering in
any way with the right of the Company or a Subsidiary to terminate any Eligible
Person's or Participant's employment at any time, (iii) giving an Eligible
Person or Participant any claim to be granted any Award under the Plan or to be
treated uniformly with other Participants and employees, or (iv) conferring on a
Participant any of the rights of a stockholder of the Company unless and until
the Participant is duly issued or transferred shares of Stock in accordance with
the terms of an Award.

                  (g) Unfunded Status of Awards; Creation of Trusts. The Plan is
intended to constitute an 'unfunded' plan for incentive and deferred
compensation. With respect to any payments not yet made to a Participant or
obligation to deliver Stock pursuant to an Award, nothing contained in the Plan
or any Award shall give any such Participant any rights that are greater than
those of a general creditor of the Company; provided that the Committee may
authorize the creation of trusts and deposit therein cash, Stock, other Awards
or other property, or make other arrangements to meet the Company's obligations
under the Plan. Such trusts or other arrangements shall be consistent with the
'unfunded' status of the Plan unless the 


                                       20


Committee otherwise determines with the consent of each affected Participant.
The trustee of such trusts may be authorized to dispose of trust assets and
reinvest the proceeds in alternative investments, subject to such terms and
conditions as the Committee or the Board may specify and in accordance with
applicable law.

                  (h) Nonexclusivity of the Plan. Neither the adoption of the
Plan by the Board nor its submission to the stockholders of the Company for
approval shall be construed as creating any limitations on the power of the
Board or a committee thereof to adopt such other incentive arrangements as it
may deem desirable including incentive arrangements and awards which do not
qualify under Code Section 162(m).

                  (i) Payments in the Event of Forfeitures; Fractional Shares.
Unless otherwise determined by the Committee or the Board, in the event of a
forfeiture of an Award with respect to which a Participant paid cash or other
consideration, the Participant shall be repaid the amount of such cash or other
consideration. No fractional shares of Stock shall be issued or delivered
pursuant to the Plan or any Award. The Committee or the Board shall determine
whether cash, other Awards or other property shall be issued or paid in lieu of
such fractional shares or whether such fractional shares or any rights thereto
shall be forfeited or otherwise eliminated.

                  (j) Governing Law. The validity, construction and effect of
the Plan, any rules and regulations under the Plan, and any Award agreement
shall be determined in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware without
giving effect to principles of conflicts of laws, and applicable federal law.

                  (k) Plan Effective Date and Stockholder Approval; Termination
of Plan. The Plan shall become effective on the Effective Date, subject to
subsequent approval within 12 months of its adoption by the Board by
stockholders of the Company eligible to vote in the election of directors, by a
vote sufficient to meet the requirements of Code Sections 162(m) and 422, Rule
16b-3 under the Exchange Act, applicable stock exchange requirements, and other
laws, regulations, and obligations of the Company applicable to the Plan. Awards
may be granted subject to stockholder approval, but may not be exercised or
otherwise settled in the event stockholder approval is not obtained. The Plan
shall terminate at such time as no shares of Common Stock remain available for
issuance under the Plan and the Company has no further rights or obligations
with respect to outstanding Awards under the Plan.
