Accounting Treatment
The Program will be accounted for under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123 (revised), Share-Based Payment (FAS 123R). Under these rules, the exchange of options will be characterized as a modification of the exchanged options. Any difference between the fair value of the new Replacement Awards over the fair value of the exchanged options at the time of the exchange will result in a modest additional compensation expense. The actual amount of the compensation expense will depend on participation levels and on the exchange ratios, Black-Scholes values, and vesting schedules established at the time of the exchange. We do not expect the additional compensation expense, if any, to be material to Motorola.
