PENSION BENEFITS

 

The following table quantifies the benefits expected to be paid to the named executive officers under our Employee Retirement Plan (the “ERP”), a qualified defined benefit pension plan, our Retirement Restoration Plan and our Retirement Restoration Plan II (collectively, the “RRP”), non-qualified and unfunded defined benefit pension plans, and an agreement for a supplemental retirement benefit for Mr. Burd (the “SERP”), a non-qualified and unfunded defined benefit pension plan. The Retirement Restoration Plan II became effective on January 1, 2005 in connection with the passage of Code Section 409A. The terms of the plans are described below the table.

 

The following actuarial assumptions were employed to derive the calculations shown on the table below: (1) pension economic assumptions utilized for our SFAS 132 (as amended by SFAS 158) financial reporting for the 2008 fiscal year were used for calculations at the end of 2008; (2) demographic assumptions are also consistent with pension financial reporting, with the exception of modified retirement and pre-retirement decrements as required by SEC guidance; (3) a discount rate of 6.25%; (4) a cash balance interest crediting and annuity conversion interest rate of 4.00%; and (5) an account balance interest crediting rate of 2.70%.

 

Additional actuarial assumptions used include the following: (1) account balance annuity conversion rate – product of account balance and a factor of 1.00% at ages over 55; (2) mortality table for lump sum conversion – 2008 IRS Applicable Mortality Table; (3) retirement table for post-retirement mortality – RP2000 projected to 2015; (4) no pre-retirement mortality, turnover or disability; (5) retirement age of 65 for cash balance only participants (Mr. Edwards and Mr. Gordon), age 62 for participants in the ERP grandfather (Mr. Burd, Mr. Everette and Ms. Renda) and immediate retirement for Mr. Burd’s SERP agreement.

 

Columns specified in the SEC rules are omitted where there is no amount to report.

We provide our eligible executives with retirement benefits that are in addition to those provided to our employees generally. These retirement benefits are provided using a combination of a qualified defined benefit pension plan and non-qualified defined benefit pension plans. Mr. Burd is also covered by the SERP, an agreement for a supplemental retirement benefit. No other executive officer has a supplemental retirement benefit other than the RRP. Under the ERP, upon termination of employment for any reason (including in connection with a change in control), a participant may elect to receive his or her vested benefit via a lump sum payment or an annuity paid monthly. Under the RRP, upon termination of employment for any reason (including in connection with a change in control), a participant will receive his or her vested benefit via an annuity paid monthly. Under the ERP, in the event of termination of employment for any reason, a participant

must have at least three years of service with us or must have reached age 55 to receive his or her accumulated benefits, and under the RRP, a participant must have reached age 55 to receive his or her accumulated benefits.

(2) The number of years of credited service and the present value of accumulated benefits are calculated as of January 3, 2009, which is the measurement date used for reporting purposes in the 2008 10-K.
(3) Account-based cash benefits were projected to the assumed retirement age using the appropriate interest rate. No future contributions were assumed. These projected accounts were converted to annuities at the assumed retirement age using the annuity conversion mortality and interest assumptions used in our financial disclosures (e.g., cash balance accounts are converted using the 2008 IRS Applicable Mortality Table and 4.00% interest). Employee contribution account balances were converted to annuities at current assumptions. Benefits payable at the assumed retirement age were converted to a present value at that date using the mortality and interest assumptions for annuity present values that were used in our financial disclosures (e.g., end of fiscal 2008 annuity was valued at assumed retirement age using RP2000 projected to 2015 mortality and 6.25% interest). The present value determined at the assumed retirement age was discounted back to the end of the 2008 fiscal year using the pension financial reporting discount rate.
(4) Since benefits under this plan are not tenure-based, there are no creditable years of service related to this plan. Mr. Burd’s SERP benefit was valued by calculating the gross benefit payable at the assumed retirement age and offsetting ERP and RRP benefits that would be payable at the same age. The net SERP benefit was then valued as an immediately payable annuity using the assumptions described previously. Upon termination of employment for any reason other than for cause, Mr. Burd will receive his accumulated net SERP benefit as an annuity paid monthly (commencing within 90 days of the first day of the seventh month after such termination of employment if for any reason other than death). In the event of a termination of Mr. Burd’s employment for cause, Mr. Burd would not receive a payment under the SERP. Cause is defined in the SERP as: (i) an act of fraud, dishonesty, misappropriation, illegal conduct or gross misconduct that has a material impact on our assets or reputation; or (ii) a conviction of, or plea of nolo contendere to, a felony or misdemeanor involving moral turpitude and materially impacting the Company.
(5) These amounts were not vested as of January 3, 2009. In the event the named executive officer’s employment had been terminated as of January 3, 2009 voluntarily, involuntarily with or without cause or as a result of a change in control, the named executive officer would have received $0 under this benefit.

Additional actuarial assumptions used include the following: (1) account balance annuity conversion rate – product of account balance and a factor of 1.00% at ages over 55; (2) mortality table for lump sum conversion – Group Annuity Reserving 1994 (“1994 GAR”); (3) retirement table for post-retirement mortality – RP2000 projected to 2015; (4) no pre-retirement mortality, turnover or disability; (5) retirement age of 65 for cash balance only participants (Mr. Edwards, Mr. Gordon and Mr. Cornell), age 62 for participants in the ERP grandfather (Mr. Burd, Mr. Everette and Ms. Renda) and immediate retirement for Mr. Burd’s SERP agreement.

 

Columns specified in the SEC rules are omitted where there is no amount to report. As a result of Mr. Cornell’s termination of employment with us during fiscal year 2007, Mr. Cornell did not have any accumulated benefits under the ERP or the RRP at the end of fiscal year 2007.

The Company provides its eligible executives with retirement benefits that are in addition to those provided to its employees generally. These retirement benefits are provided using a combination of the ERP, a qualified defined benefit pension plan, and the RRP non-qualified defined benefit pension plans. Mr. Burd is also covered by the SERP, called the Supplemental Retirement Benefit Agreement. No other executive officer has a supplemental retirement benefit other than the RRP. Under the ERP, upon termination of employment for any reason (including in connection with a change in control), a participant may elect to receive his or her vested benefit via a lump sum payment or an annuity paid monthly. Under the RRP, upon termination of employment for any reason (including in connection with a change in control), a participant will receive his or her vested benefit via an annuity paid monthly. Under the ERP, in the event of

termination of employment for any reason, a participant must have at least five years of service with the Company or must have reached age 55 to receive his or her accumulated benefits, and under the RRP, a participant must have reached age 55 to receive his or her accumulated benefits.

(2) The number of years of credited service and the present value of accumulated benefits are calculated as of December 30, 2006, which is the measurement date used for reporting purposes in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 30, 2006.
(3) Account-based cash benefits were projected to the assumed retirement age using the appropriate interest rate. No future contributions were assumed. These projected accounts were converted to annuities at the assumed retirement age using the annuity conversion mortality and interest assumptions used in the Company’s financial disclosures (e.g., cash balance accounts are converted using 1994 GAR mortality and 5.00% interest).

The present value determined at the assumed retirement age was discounted back to the end of the 2005 or 2006 fiscal year using the pension financial reporting discount rate.
(4) Since benefits under this plan are not tenure-based, there are no creditable years of service related to this plan. Mr. Burd’s SERP benefit was valued by calculating the gross benefit payable at the assumed retirement age and offsetting ERP and RRP benefits that would be payable at the same age. The net SERP benefit was then valued as an immediately payable annuity using the assumptions described previously. Upon termination of employment for any reason other than cause, Mr. Burd will receive his accumulated net SERP benefit as an annuity paid monthly. In the event of a termination of Mr. Burd’s employment with the Company for cause, Mr. Burd would not receive a payment under the SERP. Cause is defined in the SERP as: (i) an act of fraud, dishonesty, misappropriation, illegal conduct or gross misconduct that has a material impact on the assets or reputation of the Company; or (ii) a conviction of or plea of nolo contendere to a felony or misdemeanor involving moral turpitude and materially impacting the Company.
(5) These amounts were not vested as of December 30, 2006. In the event the named executive officer’s employment with the Company had been terminated as of December 30, 2006 voluntarily, involuntarily with or without cause or as a result of a change in control of the Company, the named executive officer would have received $0 under this benefit.
