AGREEMENTS WITH DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS
In September 2000, the Company entered into an agreement with Mr. McCallister (McCallister Agreement) pursuant to which he: 1) serves as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company at an annual base salary in an amount not less than $650,000; 2) participates in an incentive plan providing for a target incentive compensation amount of not less than 125% of his base salary; and 3) is eligible for participation in all benefit plans and programs made available by the Company for its executive employees.
In the event of termination of employment without Good Cause (as defined in the McCallister Agreement), or with Good Cause under certain circumstances as set out in the McCallister Agreement, or pursuant to disability or death, the Company will pay to him or his estate an amount equal to any unpaid current annual base salary accrued through the date of termination and a prorated bonus calculated on the basis of 100% of base salary, plus a severance amount equal to his annual base salary plus bonus calculated at 100% of his base salary. He is also entitled to continue his coverage under the Companys life, health and disability plans for a 12-month period upon the same terms and costs for other employees of the Company. Additionally, all of his stock options shall become fully vested and shall be exercisable for a two-year period following his termination.
In the event of termination of employment with Good Cause, Mr. McCallister would receive an amount equal to his then current base salary earned but not yet paid and shall have a period of 90 days to exercise any vested options. Mr. McCallister would forfeit any unvested options or restricted shares.
In the event of termination of employment because Mr. McCallister gives notice of termination of the McCallister Agreement, or because Mr. McCallister voluntarily terminates his employment during the Employment Period, then the Company shall pay to him an amount equal to his then current base salary. Any bonus payable shall be prorated. He shall have two years to exercise any vested options. He is also entitled to continue his coverage for a 12-month period under the Companys life, health and disability plans upon the same terms and costs for other similarly situated employees of the Company.
In the event of termination of employment following a Change in Control, as defined in the McCallister Agreement, then Mr. McCallister shall receive: 1) his full base salary earned but not yet paid through the termination date at the greater of the rate in effect at the time of the Change in Control or the Termination Date (Higher Annual Base Salary), plus a prorated bonus calculated at 125% of his Higher Annual Base Salary; 2) an amount equal to two and one-half times the sum of the Higher Annual Base Salary plus the maximum target incentive compensation which could have been earned; 3) continued coverage for a two-year period, at the Companys expense, under all life, health, dental, accidental death and dismemberment and disability insurance; and 4) a gross up amount for any payments that constitute an excess parachute payment.
The McCallister Agreement also contains provisions not to compete or solicit for a 12-month period following termination. The McCallister Agreement generally may be terminated by either party giving written notice at least sixty (60) days prior to December 31 of each year.
In December 1999, the Company entered into an agreement with Mr. Jones (Jones Agreement) formalizing the payments he receives as Chairman of the Board. See Director Compensation for a description of the terms of the Jones Agreement. This agreement will terminate upon Mr. Jones retirement effective April 26, 2005.
All officers elected by the Board of Directors, including the Named Executive Officers, generally receive health benefits upon termination for themselves and their eligible dependents at a predetermined rate until the earlier of attainment of age 65 or obtaining other coverage.
The Company has entered into agreements with all other officers, including Mr. Murray, Dr. Lord, Mr. Goodman, Mr. Bloem and key management employees, which for a two-year period following a Change in Control provide certain benefits upon termination. Such termination may be involuntary or may be due to a resignation as a result of a change in responsibilities or compensation. Under these agreements, these individuals would be entitled to receive severance pay which generally is determined by multiplying the sum of each individuals annual base salary, and the maximum incentive compensation payable to him or her, by a multiple ranging from one to one and one-half.
In addition, in the event of a Change in Control of the Company, benefits are payable under the Companys Stock Option and Restricted Stock Plans, and health, life and disability insurance coverage is available.
