8.02 Adjustment of Participants Accounts
As of each Accounting Date, the Accounts of Participants shall be adjusted to reflect the following:
As of each Accounting Date, the Committee shall establish the value of each Participants Account, which value shall reflect the transactions posted to the Participants Account as they occurred during the preceding calendar month. As of the first day of each Plan Year, the balance in each Participants Current Year Before-Tax Contribution Subaccount, Current Year Matching Contribution Subaccount, Current Year Annual Company Contribution Subaccount, Current Year Transition Contribution Subaccount, if any, shall be reflected in the Participants Before-Tax Contribution Account, Matching Contribution Account, Annual Company Contribution Account, Transition Contribution Account, and After-Tax Account, respectively and the
balances of such Current Year Before-Tax Contribution Subaccount, Current Year Matching Contribution Subaccount, Current Year Annual Company Contribution Subaccount and Current Year Transition Contribution Subaccount shall be reduced to zero. If a Special Accounting Date occurs, the accounting rules set forth above in this Subsection and elsewhere in this SECTION 8 shall be appropriately adjusted to reflect the resulting shorter accounting period ending on that Special Accounting Date.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Committee may establish separate rules to be applied on a uniform basis in adjusting any portion of Participants Accounts that is invested in the Sara Lee Corporation Common Stock Fund or the Hanesbrands Inc. Common Stock Fund for such accounting period, including the treatment of any dividends or stock splits with respect to the securities held in such funds. Such rules may include provisions for (i) allocating earnings from short-term investments during an accounting period to the Subaccounts of Participants; (ii) allocating dividends or stock splits to Participants Subaccounts invested in the applicable Fund (or to a separate Account or Subaccount, as applicable); (iii) allocating shares of Sara Lee Stock or Hanesbrands Stock to Participants Subaccounts based on the average purchase price per share purchased by the Trustee during such accounting period; and (iv) allocating shares of stock (or other securities) to Participants Subaccounts based on the applicable stock split or stock dividend factor or other similar basis.
