Manner of Payment. The balance of a Director's Deferred Cash Compensation Account will be paid to the Director or, in the event of the Director's death, to the Director's designated beneficiary, in accordance with the Cash Deferral Election. A Director may elect at the time of filing the Notice of Election for a Cash Deferral Election to receive payment of the Director Fees in annual installments rather than a lump sum, provided that the payment period for installment payments shall not exceed fifteen years following the Payment Commencement Date, as described in Section 7 hereof. The amount of any installment shall be determined by multiplying (i) the balance in the Director's Deferred Cash Compensation Account on the date of such installment by (ii) a fraction, the numerator of which is one and the denominator of which is the number of remaining unpaid installments (including the installment payment then being determined). The balance of the Deferred Cash Compensation Account shall be appropriately reduced on the date of payment to the Director or the Director's designated beneficiary to reflect the installment payment made hereunder. Amounts held pending distribution pursuant to this Section 5(c) shall continue to be credited with the earnings, gains or losses as described in Section 5(b) hereof.
