                     practicable following the Payout Commencement Date, in a
                     Lump-Sum Payment regardless of the Participant's previous

                     If a Participant's employment with the Company terminates
                     for any reason and the Participant's Accrued Account
                     Balances payable on any coincident or future Payout
                     Commencement Date are less than ten thousand dollars
                     ($10,000) at the time of such termination of employment,
                     then the Accrued Account Balances payable on such Payout
                     Commencement Date(s) shall be paid as soon as
                     administratively practicable following the Payout
                     Commencement Date, in a Lump-Sum Payment regardless of the
                     Participant's previous elections.

                     If a Participant's employment with the Company terminates
                     due to Disability or death, and the Participant's Accrued
                     Account Balances payable on any coincident or future Payout
                     Commencement Date are individually equal to or greater than
                     ten thousand dollars ($10,000), such Participant, or such
                     Participant's estate, as the case may be, may petition the
                     Committee or its delegate to pay out the Accrued Account
                     Balances in a Lump-Sum Payment as soon as administratively
                     practicable regardless of the Participant's previous
                     elections. In the case of employment termination due to
                     Disability, the termination shall be deemed to have
                     occurred on the day that the Committee or its delegate
                     determines the Disability to be total and permanent. The
                     decision of whether to allow for an accelerated Lump-Sum
                     Payment shall be at the discretion of the Committee or its
                     delegate.

              (x)    "Installment Payments" means a series of payments, from two
                     (2) up to twenty (20) approximately equal annual payments,
                     as elected by the Participant, to be made in cash or
                     Company Stock, as applicable, with the initial payment due
                     within thirty (30) calendar days after the applicable
                     Payout Commencement Date elected by the Participant. Each
                     of the remaining Installment Payments shall be made in cash
                     or Company Stock, as applicable, each year thereafter on
                     the anniversary of such Payout Commencement Date, until all
                     Accrued Account Balances deferred to such Payout
                     Commencement Date have been paid in full. Earnings shall
                     continue to accrue on any remaining Accrued Account
                     Balances in the manner provided in Section 12.2 hereof
                     until all Accrued Account Balances deferred to such Payout
                     Commencement Date have been paid in full. The amount of
                     each Installment Payment shall be equal to the applicable
                     portion of the Accrued Account Balances remaining
                     immediately prior to each such payment, multiplied by a
                     fraction, the numerator of which is one (1) and the
                     denominator of which is the number of Installment Payments
                     remaining to be paid (including such payment).

                     Date.

                     Section 7.1 hereof.

ARTICLE 7.  MANDATORY DEFERRALS
      7.1 DEFERRAL. If the Committee determines that, with respect to any tax
year, a Participant is a "covered employee" for purposes of Section 162(m) of
the Code, the Committee may, in its discretion, impose a mandatory deferral of
all amounts otherwise payable to such employee by the Company to the extent that
such amounts meet the definition of "applicable employee remuneration" (as such
term is defined in Section 162(m) of the Code) and such amounts exceed
$1,000,000 (or such other amount as may be specified by Section 162(m) from time
to time) as determined by the Committee.

      Amounts deferred pursuant to this Section 7.1 shall be credited to such

Code) with respect to any part of such amounts. However, subject to Section
2.1(dd) hereof, a Participant can make an irrevocable election to have these
amounts deferred to a later Payout Commencement Date at which time no loss of
the Company deduction 



                                       10
   13

would occur (due to Section 162(m)); such election must be made prior to lapse 
of the restriction set forth in this Section 7.2.

      7.3 FORM OF PAYOUT. Subject to Sections 7.2 and 7.4 hereof, the payout of
Mandatory Deferrals, and earnings thereon, shall be in a Lump-Sum Payment to the
extent not deferred by the Participant to a Payout Commencement Date. If
deferred to a Payout Commencement Date, the Form of Payout shall be as elected
by such Participant pursuant to Section 2.1(w) hereof.

      7.4 COMMITTEE DISCRETION. In the event that any payment under this Plan
would cause the Company a loss of deductibility (due to Section 162(m)), the
Committee reserves the right hereunder to (i) delay such payment; (ii) require
additional mandatory deferrals to offset such payment; or (iii) to take any
other action necessary and appropriate to avoid such loss of deductibility.

ARTICLE 8. VOLUNTARY STOCK UNIT DEFERRALS
      8.1 PARTICIPATION. A Participant may voluntarily defer the receipt of
shares of Company Stock which were voluntarily cancelled and Stock Units granted
in lieu thereof by the election of the Participant in connection with (a) the

under a Company stock plan, a Participant may voluntarily elect to cancel the
applicable shares of Company Stock and receive Stock Units in lieu thereof and
to defer such Stock Units pursuant to the terms hereof.

      Subject to the terms hereof, such election shall be irrevocable. Such
Stock Units deferred pursuant to this Section 8.2, and earnings thereon, shall
be credited to the Participant's Voluntary Stock Unit Deferral Account. A
Participant shall be one hundred percent (100%) vested in such Stock Units
deferred pursuant to this Section 8.2, and earnings thereon, at all times.

                     8.2 hereof;

              (b)    The Payout Commencement Date for the Voluntary Stock Unit
                     Deferrals, and earnings thereon, which shall be irrevocable
                     pursuant to Section 8.4 hereof; and

12.2(c), with respect to the Match Restoration Account.

      Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Committee reserves

ARTICLE 18. MISCELLANEOUS
      18.1 FINANCIAL OR MEDICAL HARDSHIP. The Committee or its delegate shall
have the authority to alter the timing or manner of payment of Accrued Account
Balances in the event that a Participant establishes, to the satisfaction of the
Committee or its delegate, severe financial or medical hardship. In such event,
the Committee or its delegate may, in its discretion:

              (a)    Authorize the cessation of Voluntary Deferrals pursuant to
                     Section 5.2 and Section 6.2 hereof;

              (b)    Provide that all, or a portion, of the Accrued Account
                     Balances shall immediately be paid in cash in a Lump-Sum
                     Payment; and/or

              (c)    Provide that all, or a portion of, Installment Payments
                     payable over a period of time shall instead be paid
                     immediately in cash in a Lump-Sum Payment; and/or

              (d)    Provide for such other payment schedule as deemed
                     appropriate by the Committee or its delegate under the
                     circumstances.

      However, the amount paid pursuant to this Section 18.1 shall not exceed
that amount which the Committee or its delegate determines to be reasonably
necessary for the Participant to meet the financial or medical hardships at the
time of such payment. The severity of the financial or medical hardship shall be
judged by the Committee or its delegate. Severe financial or medical hardship
shall be deemed to exist in the event of the Participant's long and serious
illness, impending bankruptcy, or similar unforeseeable and extraordinary
circumstances arising as a result of events beyond the control of the
Participant. The decision of the Committee or its delegate with respect to the
severity of financial or medical hardship and the manner in which, if at all,
the Participant's future deferral opportunities hereunder shall cease, and/or
the manner in which, if at all, the payment of Accrued Account Balances to the
Participant shall be altered or modified, shall be final, conclusive, and not
subject to appeal.

      18.2 NOTICE. Any notice or filing required or permitted to be given to the
Company under the Plan shall be sufficient if in writing and hand delivered, or
sent by registered or certified mail to the Chairman of the Committee or its
delegate. Such notice, if mailed, shall be addressed to the principal executive
offices of the Company. Notice mailed to a Participant shall be at the last
known address as is given in the records of the Company. A notice shall be

      18.3 UNFUNDED PLAN. This Plan is intended to be an unfunded plan
maintained primarily to provide deferred compensation benefits for "a select
group of management or highly compensated employees" within the meaning of
Sections 201, 301, and 401 of ERISA, and therefore is further intended to be

Units credited to the Stock Unit Subaccount, and the number of shares of Company
Stock to be distributed hereunder, including, without limitation, pursuant to
Articles 5, 6, 7, 9, 11 and 12 (as applicable), shall be equitably adjusted by
the Committee to reflect such event and to preserve the value of such Stock
Units, and the Committee may make such other adjustments to the terms of
outstanding Stock Units as it may deem equitable under the circumstances;

hypothecated, other than pursuant to Article 14 hereof or by will or by the laws
of descent and distribution. In no event shall the Company make any payment
under the Plan to any assignee or creditor of a Participant.

      18.7 SEVERABILITY. In the event any provision of the Plan shall be held
illegal or invalid for any reason, the illegality or invalidity shall not affect
the remaining parts of the Plan, and the Plan shall be construed and enforced as
if the illegal or invalid provision had not been included.

      18.8 COSTS OF THE PLAN. All costs of implementing and administering the
Plan shall be borne by the Company.

Company, and any successor plans thereto. The Committee shall establish rules
and procedures for such deferrals.
