Federal Income Tax Consequences
 
The following is a brief description of the material U.S. federal income tax consequences associated with payments under the Annual Bonus Plan. It is based on existing U.S. laws and regulations, and there can be no assurances that those laws and regulations will not change in the future. Tax consequences in other countries vary.
 
Under present federal income tax law, an Annual Bonus Plan participant will be taxed at ordinary income rates on the cash portion of the bonus in the year in which such cash was received. If a participant elects to defer a portion of the bonus or to receive it in some form other than cash (if such alternatives are available), the participant may be entitled to defer the recognition of income. Generally, and subject to the provisions of Section 162(m), we will receive a federal income tax deduction corresponding to the amount of income recognized by the Annual Bonus Plan participants.
