This Option is granted under and pursuant to the Plan and is subject to each and all of the provisions thereof. 2. The Option price shall be $113.03 per share of Stock. 3. Except as may be provided in this Paragraph 3, this Option is not transferable by the Employee otherwise than by will or the laws of descent and distribution, and is exercisable only by the Employee during her lifetime. Except as may be provided in this Paragraph 3, this Option may not be transferred, assigned, pledged or hypothecated by the Employee during her lifetime, whether by operation of law or otherwise, and is not subject to execution, attachment or similar process. The Employee may transfer this Option (to the extent vested) consistent with the rules for transfers to 'family members' as defined in Form S-8 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended; provided, however, that any such transfer shall comply with all procedural rules reasonably established by the Committee. 4. This Option shall become exercisable as to 25% of the Stock subject to such Option on the first anniversary date of the Grant Date, and as to an additional 25% on each succeeding anniversary date, so as to be 100% vested on the fourth anniversary thereof, conditioned upon the Employee's continued employment with the Company as of each vesting date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Option shall become exercisable as to: (a) 100% of the then unvested Stock subject to this Option upon the termination of the Employee's employment due to a 'Disability Termination' (as defined in the Employment Agreement), death or retirement due to age or permanent and total disability; (b) 50% of the then unvested Stock subject to this Option upon the Employee's voluntary termination of employment for 'Good Reason' (as defined in the Employment Agreement) or involuntary termination by the Company other than for 'Cause' (as defined in the Employment Agreement); provided, however, that if such termination takes place in contemplation of, at the time of, or within two (2) years after a Change of Control (as defined in the Employment Agreement), this Option shall become exercisable in full, except that if such Change of Control occurs within one (1) year after the Grant Date (i) such full vesting shall not occur, and (ii) the additional vesting beyond that occurring upon the Change of Control under sub-paragraph (c) below shall not occur if the termination is at the time or within three (3) months after the Change of Control; or (c) 50% of each vesting tranche of the then unvested Stock subject to this Option in the event of a Change of Control. Following such partial acceleration of this Option as provided in Paragraphs 4(b) or (c), the remaining unvested Stock subject to this Option shall continue to vest as otherwise provided in this Agreement. 5. This Option will expire ten (10) years from the date hereof, unless sooner terminated or canceled in accordance with the provisions of the Plan and this Agreement. This means that the Option must be exercised, if at all, on or before July 16, 2009. 6. This Option may be exercised by delivering to the Secretary of the Company at its head office a written notice stating the number of shares of Stock as to which the Option is exercised; provided, however, that no such exercise shall be with respect to fewer than twenty-five (25) shares or the remaining shares covered by the Option if less than twenty-five. The written notice must be accompanied by the payment of the full Option price of such shares. Payment may be by: (a) Cash; -1- (b) Shares of Stock owned for at least six (6) months; (c) Delivery of the Employee's promissory note ('Note') in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A bearing interest at the 'applicable federal --------- rate' prescribed under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended and its regulations at time of purchase and secured by a pledge of the Stock purchased by the Note pursuant to the Security Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit B; or --------- (f)d Consideration received by the Company under a cashless exercise program implemented by the Company in connection with the Plan; or (e) A combination thereof; provided, however, that any payment in Stock or by delivery of a Note shall be in strict compliance with all procedural rules established by the Committee. 7. All rights of the Employee in this Option, to the extent that it has not been exercised, shall terminate upon the death of the Employee (except as hereinafter provided) or termination of her employment for any reason other than retirement due to age or permanent and total disability, a Disability Termination, termination by the Company without Cause, or voluntary termination by the Employee for Good Reason, except as provided in Paragraph 4(b) with regard to the contemplation of a Change of Control. In the event of the Employee=s retirement due to age or permanent and total disability, the Employee may exercise the Option within three (3) years after such retirement. In the event of the Employee's termination of employment due to a Disability Termination (other than due to a permanent and total disability), termination by the Company without Cause, or voluntary termination by the Employee for Good Reason, the Employee may exercise the Option within one (1) year after such termination. In the event of the Employee's death, her legal representative or designated beneficiary shall have the right to exercise all or a portion of the Employee's right under this Option. The representative or designee must exercise the Option within one (1) year after the death of the Employee, and shall be bound by the provisions of the Plan. In all cases, however, the Option will expire no later than the expiration date set forth in Paragraph 5. 8. The Employee shall remit to the Company payment for all applicable withholding taxes and required social security contributions at the time the Employee exercises any portion of this Option. The Employee may elect to satisfy such withholding tax obligation by having the Company retain Stock having a fair market value equal to the Company's minimum withholding obligation. 9. Neither the Plan nor this Agreement nor any provision under either shall be construed so as to grant the Employee any right to remain in the employ of the Company, and it is expressly agreed and understood that employment is terminable at the will of either party subject to the provisions of the Employment Agreement.
