ARTICLE II. GENERAL 2.1 Name ---- This Plan shall be known as the "Fluor Corporation 2000 Restricted Stock Plan for Non-Employee Directors". 2.2 Purpose ------- The purpose of the Plan is to advance the interests of the Company and its stockholders by affording to Eligible Directors of the Company an opportunity to acquire or increase their proprietary interest in the Company by the grant to such directors of Awards under the terms set forth herein. By encouraging non- employee directors to become owners of Company shares, the Company seeks to increase their incentive for enhancing stockholder value and to motivate, retain and attract those highly competent individuals upon whose judgment, initiative, leadership and continued efforts the success of the Company in large measure depends. The Plan also permits Shares to be issuable upon vesting or satisfaction of restricted stock and restricted unit 2 awards that were assumed by the Company in connection with the distribution of the Company's common stock (the "Distribution") to the stockholders of Massey Energy Company, which prior to the distribution was known as Fluor Corporation ("Old Fluor"). 2.3 Effective Date -------------- The Plan shall become effective upon its approval by Old Fluor, as sole stockholder of the Company. 2.4 Limitations ----------- Subject to adjustment pursuant to the provisions of Section 8.1 hereof, the aggregate number of shares of Stock which may be issued as Awards shall not exceed 120,000. Any such shares may be either authorized and unissued shares or shares issued and thereafter acquired by the Company. 2.5 Awards Granted under Plan ------------------------- For purposes of Section 2.4, the aggregate number of shares of Stock issued under this Plan at any time shall equal only the number of shares actually issued pursuant to all Awards and shall not count any shares returned to the Company upon cancellation, expiration or forfeiture of an Award or delivered (either actually or by attestation) in payment or satisfaction of the tax obligation of an Award. ARTICLE III. PARTICIPANTS 3.1 Eligibility ----------- Any Eligible Director shall be eligible to participate in the Plan. ARTICLE IV.

The Company shall furnish the Committee with such clerical and other assistance as is necessary in the performance of its duties. ARTICLE V. RESTRICTED STOCK AWARDS 5.1 Awards under the Plan --------------------- The Committee may provide for a one-time Restricted Stock Award to any Eligible Director which shall be granted on a date determined by the Committee, in its sole discretion, in connection with such Eligible Director first being appointed or elected to the Board. The Committee shall grant to each Eligible Director that is a member of the Board during all or any portion of each calendar year during the term of the Plan a Restricted Stock Award, which shall 4 be granted on a date determined by the Committee, in its sole discretion. The number of shares of Stock subject to a one-time Restricted Stock Award shall be set by the Committee but shall not exceed 1,500 and the number of shares of Stock subject to an annual Restricted Stock Award shall be set by the Committee but shall not exceed 750. An Assumed Award is a restricted stock grant, restricted stock unit or other equity-based arrangement that was granted by Old Fluor to its non-employee directors for their service as such and assumed by the Company in connection with the Distribution, as adjusted or amended pursuant to the terms thereof. Assumed Awards may be settled with Stock authorized and issued under this Plan. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in this Plan and except as provided in this sentence, the terms of Assumed Awards shall be subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the grant agreement and/or other document(s) evidencing such Award and, to the extent provided therein, to terms equivalent to the terms of the plan under which such Award was originally granted; provided, however, that all Assumed Awards shall be administered by the Committee, which shall have the power and authority provided for in Section 4 of this Plan. 5.2 Restricted Stock Agreement -------------------------- Each Award granted hereunder must be granted within ten years from the effective date of the Plan. The Awardee shall be entitled to receive the Stock subject to such Award only if the Company and the Awardee, within the time period specified by the Committee, enter into a written Restricted Stock Agreement dated as of the date of the Award, which Agreement shall set forth such terms and conditions as may be determined by the Committee consistent with the Plan. 5.3 Restrictions on Sale or Other Transfer -------------------------------------- Each share of Stock granted under a Restricted Stock Award shall be subject to acquisition by the Company, and may not be sold or otherwise transferred except pursuant to the following provisions: (a) The shares of Stock represented by the Restricted Stock Agreement shall be held in book entry form with the Company's transfer agent until the restrictions lapse in accordance with the conditions established by the Committee pursuant to Section 5.4 hereof, or until the shares of Stock are forfeited pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section 5.3. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Awardee may request that, prior to the lapse of the restrictions or forfeiture of the shares, certificates evidencing such shares be issued in his name and delivered to him, and each such certificate shall bear the following legend: "The shares of Fluor Corporation common stock evidenced by this certificate are subject to acquisition by Fluor Corporation, and such shares may not be sold or otherwise transferred except pursuant to the provisions of the Restricted Stock Agreement by and between Fluor Corporation and the registered owner of such shares." (b) No such shares may be sold, transferred or otherwise alienated or hypothecated so long as such shares are subject to the restriction provided for in this Section 5.3. 5 (c) All of the Awardee's Restricted Stock remaining subject to any restriction hereunder shall be forfeited to, and be acquired at no cost by, the Company in the event that the Committee determines that any of the following circumstances has occurred: (i) the Awardee has engaged in knowing and willful misconduct in connection with his or her service as a member of the Board; (ii) the Awardee, without the consent of the Committee, at any time during his or her period of service as a member of the Board, becomes a principal of, serves as a director of, or owns a material interest in, any business that directly or through a controlled subsidiary competes with the Company or any Subsidiary; or (iii) the Awardee does not stand for reelection to, or voluntarily quits or resigns from, the Board for any reason, except under circumstances that would cause such restrictions to lapse under Section 5.4. 5.4 Lapse of Restrictions --------------------- (a) Unless provided otherwise by the Committee, the restrictions imposed under Section 5.3 above upon a one-time Restricted Stock Award shall lapse to the extent of 20% of the number of shares subject to such Award on such date as shall be designated by the Committee and thereafter, the restrictions on the remaining shares subject to such Award will lapse in four equal increments on the succeeding anniversary dates following the date of lapsing of restrictions on the first 20% of the shares. (b) Unless provided otherwise by the Committee, the restrictions imposed under Section 5.3 above upon an annual Restricted Stock Award shall lapse once such Restricted Stock is held by the Awardee for at least six months, the Awardee completes six years of service on the Board of the Company and any of the following occurs: (i) the Awardee attains the Age for Board Retirement or obtains Board approval of early retirement in accordance with Section 5.5; (ii) the Awardee dies or becomes permanently and totally disabled; or (iii) any Change of Control occurs. (c) Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Committee may provide that the restrictions imposed under Section 5.3 will lapse over or upon satisfaction of a fewer number of years of service on the Board of the Company, except that the Committee may not provide for full lapsing of all such restrictions for less than three (3) years service on the Board of the Company, other than upon the Awardee's retirement, death or disability, or upon a Change of Control. 5.5 Early Retirement ---------------- 6 An Awardee who leaves the Board prior to the Age for Board Retirement may, upon application to and in the sole discretion of the Committee, be granted early retirement status. 5.6 Rights as Stockholder --------------------- Subject to the provisions of Section 5.3 hereof, upon the issuance to the Awardee of Restricted Stock hereunder, the Awardee shall have all the rights of a stockholder with respect to such Stock, including the right to vote the shares and receive all dividends and other distributions paid or made with respect thereto. 5.7 Stock Certificates ------------------ The Company shall not be required to issue or deliver any certificate for shares of Stock received as Restricted Stock pursuant to a Restricted Stock Agreement executed hereunder, prior to fulfillment of all of the following conditions: (a) the admission of such shares to listing on all stock exchanges on which the Stock is then listed; (b) the completion of any registration or other qualification of such shares under any federal or state law or under the rulings or regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission or any other governmental regulatory body, which the Committee shall in its sole discretion deem necessary or advisable; (c) the obtaining of any approval or other clearance from any federal or state governmental agency which the Committee shall in its sole discretion determine to be necessary or advisable; and (d) the lapse of such reasonable period of time following the execution of the Restricted Stock Agreement as the Committee from time to time may establish for reasons of administrative convenience. 7 ARTICLE VI. RESTRICTED UNIT AWARDS 6.1 Restricted Unit Award Grant and Agreement ----------------------------------------- The Committee may in its discretion provide that Restricted Units be awarded in conjunction with Restricted Stock Awards.
