Performance Shares and Performance Units

The Compensation Committee may award to participants Performance Shares, each equivalent to one share of Common Stock, and Performance Units which will have a specified value or formula-based value at the end of a performance period. Performance Shares and Performance Units so awarded will be credited to an account established and maintained for the participant. The Compensation Committee will determine performance periods and performance objectives in connection with each grant of Performance Shares and Performance Units.

Vesting of awards of Performance Shares and Performance Units will occur upon achievement of the applicable objectives within the applicable performance period. The Compensation Committee may, at its discretion, permit vesting in the event performance objectives are partially met, or grant additional vested Performance Shares or Performance Units in the event performance objectives are surpassed. Payment of vested Performance Shares and Performance Units may be made in cash, Common Stock or any combination thereof, as determined by the Compensation Committee.

No voting or dividend rights attach to the Performance Shares; however, the Compensation Committee may credit a participant’s Performance Share account with additional Performance Shares equivalent to the fair market value of any dividends on an equivalent number of shares of Common Stock.
