Pursuant to our offer letter, (the Offer Letter), Mr. McLevish, will be entitled to an annual base salary of $675,000. He will also be eligible to participate in the Kraft Management Incentive Plan (MIP), which is our annual incentive program, beginning on October 1, 2007. Mr. McLevishs annual target award opportunity under the MIP is equal to 90% of his salary, or $607,500. The amount he receives will be pro-rated for the period beginning October 1, 2007 through December 31, 2007 and will also depend on his individual performance and Krafts performance. Mr. McLevish is also eligible to participate in the Long-Term Incentive Plan (LTIP), which is our executive long-term cash incentive program. His target opportunity under the LTIP is equal to 150% of his average base salary during the three-year performance period. Mr. McLevishs actual award during the 2007 2009 performance period will be pro-rated for the period beginning on October 1, 2007 through December 31, 2009. The actual amount received under the 2007 2009 LTIP performance period and other subsequent three-year performance cycles will depend on Krafts performance during each of the respective performance cycles. Mr. McLevishs target annual equity award, which will be equally divided in the form of stock options and restricted stock, is equal to $1,475,000. His equity award is dependent upon his performance for the year.
