Retirement Plans
Cash Balance Plan
All employees earn benefits with every dollar they earn in eligible compensation. Contribution credits in the amount of 5% of eligible compensation are allocated to each employee’s account each month. These contribution credits earn interest, compounded daily, from the time they are allocated to the account. The interest credit for a given year is a fixed rate based on the yield rate of 30-year Treasury Bonds, as published in the month of November of the previous year. Effective May 15, 2006, we suspended future contributions to the Cash Balance Plan.
In addition to the prior mentioned plan, Mr. Bregman has been grandfathered into the salaried component of the Exide Technologies Retirement Plan. There is an accrued benefit of $3,605.11 per month. The benefit is payable as a Single Life Annuity beginning the first of the month following the day he attains age 65. This

benefit was frozen as of December 30, 2000 and no further benefits for Mr. Bregman or any of our other salaried employees have accrued under this component since that time.
