This excerpt taken from the AKS DEF 14A filed Apr 22, 2005.
It cannot be determined at this time what benefits or amounts, if any, will be received by or allocated to any persons or group of persons under the Long-Term Plan in future years. Such determinations are subject to future performance of the Company. However, the amounts paid under the Long-Term Plan (as in effect before the 2005 amendment and restatement) to those officers who were deemed Named Executives are set forth in the
LTPP payouts column of the Summary Compensation Table on page 9 of this Proxy Statement. If the Long-Term Plan as amended and restated in January 2005 had been in effect in 2004, and the Committee had assigned performance goals similar to those assigned for the Performance Period beginning January 1, 2005, there would have been no payments under the Plan to Named Executives in 2004.
