7.3           Binding Arbitration. Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Supplement or any breach or alleged breach thereof, or any benefit or alleged benefit hereunder, shall be submitted to and settled by binding arbitration in Des Moines, Iowa, in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. Any dispute, controversy or claim submitted for resolution shall be submitted to three (3) arbitrators. The Company involved in the dispute, controversy or claim, or PFG if more than one Company is so involved, shall select one arbitrator, the Executive shall select one arbitrator and the third arbitrator shall be selected by the first two arbitrators. Any award rendered shall be final and conclusive upon the parties and a judgment thereon may be entered in the highest court of a forum, state or federal, having jurisdiction. The expenses of the arbitration shall be borne by the Companies, except that Executive’s expenses shall be handled according to Section 7.1. No arbitration shall be commenced after the date when institution of legal or equitable proceedings based upon such subject matter would be barred by the applicable statute of limitations. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 7.3 or elsewhere in this Supplement, either party may bring an action in the District Court of Polk County, or the United States District Court for the Southern District of Iowa, if jurisdiction there lies, in order to maintain the status quo ante of the parties. The “status quo ante” is defined as the last peaceable, uncontested status between the parties. However, neither the party bringing the action nor the party defending the action thereby waives its right to arbitration of any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or in connection or relating to this Supplement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 7.3 or elsewhere in this Supplement, either party may seek relief in the form of specific performance, injunctive or other equitable relief in order to enforce the decision of the arbitrators. The parties agree that in any arbitration commenced pursuant to this Supplement, the parties shall be entitled to such discovery (including depositions, requests for the production of documents and interrogatories) as would be available in a federal district court pursuant to Rules 26 through 37 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. In the event that either party fails to comply with its discovery obligations hereunder, the arbitrator(s) shall have full power and authority to compel disclosure or impose sanctions to the full extent of Rule 37 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
