XXVI. UNFUNDED PLAN
Insofar as it provides for awards of stock or cash, this Plan shall be unfunded. Although bookkeeping accounts may be established with respect to employees who are granted awards of stock under this Plan, any such accounts will be used merely as a bookkeeping convenience. Except for the holding of Restricted Stock in escrow pursuant to subsection XII(C), the Company shall not be required to segregate any assets which may at any time be represented by awards of stock or cash, nor shall this Plan be construed as providing for such segregation, nor shall the Company nor the Board nor the Committee be deemed to be a trustee of stock or cash to be awarded under the Plan. Any liability of the Company to any employee with respect to an award of stock or cash under this Plan shall be based solely upon any contractual obligations which may be created by the Plan; no such obligation of the Company shall be deemed to be secured by any
pledge or other encumbrance on any property of the Company. Neither the Company nor the Board nor the Committee shall be required to give any security or bond for the performance of any obligation which may be created by this Plan.
