5.           Change in Control.

10.          Change in Control.  In the event of a Change in Control (as defined in the Plan) during the Performance Period, the Target Number of Performance Units Awarded shall become payable in full and such payment shall be made within seventy-five (75) calendar days following the date of the Change in Control.  The Committee, in its sole discretion, may make such payment of the Target Number of Performance Units Awarded in the form of cash or in Shares (or in a combination thereof).  The number of Shares to be issued, if any, shall be equal to the number of earned Performance Units designated by the Committee to be paid in Shares.  The amount of cash to be paid if any shall be equal to the Fair Market Value, as defined in the Plan, of a share of the common stock of the Company as of the date of the Change in Control multiplied by the number of Performance Units designated by the Committee to be paid in cash.

This excerpt taken from the SHS 8-K filed Aug 29, 2006.
“Change in Control” of the Company means, and shall be deemed to have occurred upon, any of the following events:

(a)                                  Together with securities of the Company already held by such Person, any Person (other than those Persons already in control of the Company as of the Effective Date, or other than a trustee or other fiduciary holding securities under an employee benefit plan of the Company, or a corporation or other entity owned directly or indirectly by the stockholders of the Company in substantially the same proportions as their ownership of stock of the Company) becomes the Beneficial Owner, directly or indirectly, of securities of the Company representing more than fifty percent (50%) of the total voting power of the Company’s then outstanding securities provided, however, that a change in control shall not result from (a) Danfoss A/S, or (b) Klaus Murmann, any  member or members of his immediate family or any entity or trust a majority of which is owned by Klaus Murmann or a member or members of his immediate family, acquiring securities of Sauer-Danfoss Inc. from the other, either directly, or indirectly by acquiring voting control of Danfoss Murmann Holding A/S or its successor; or

(b)                                 During any period of two (2) consecutive years (not including any period prior to the Effective Date), a majority of the individuals who at the beginning of such period constitute the Board are replaced during such period by individuals whose appointment or election is not endorsed by a majority of the members of the Company’s Board prior to the date of the appointment or election; or

(c)                                  The consummation of a plan of complete liquidation of the Company; or

(d)                                 The sale or disposition of all or substantially all the Company’s assets (i.e., greater than 40% of the total gross fair market value of all of the assets of the Company immediately prior to such sale or disposition) within a 12-month period ending on the date of the most recent sale or disposition; or

6




(e)                                  A merger, consolidation, or reorganization of the Company with or involving any other corporation, other than a merger, consolidation, or reorganization that would result in the voting securities of the Company outstanding immediately prior thereto continuing to represent (either by remaining outstanding or by being converted into voting securities of the surviving entity) more than fifty percent (50%) of the combined voting power of the voting securities of the Company (or such surviving entity) outstanding immediately after such merger, consolidation, or reorganization.

However, in no event shall a “Change in Control” be deemed to have occurred with respect to a Participant, if the Participant is part of a purchasing group which consummates the Change-in-Control transaction.  A Participant shall be deemed “part of a purchasing group” for purposes of the preceding sentence if the Participant is an equity participant in the purchasing company or group (except for (i) passive ownership of less than one percent (1%) of the stock of the purchasing company; or (ii) ownership of equity participation in the purchasing company or group which is otherwise not significant as determined prior to the Change in Control by a majority of the nonemployee continuing Directors).

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, this definition of Change in Control must comply, at all times, with Code Section 409A, any regulations issued with respect to Code Section 409A and any other guidance issued the IRS and authoritative on the issue.

(ii)                                  Disability.  Solely for purposes of determining whether a Disability has occurred that will require the payout of previously deferred Performance Units under Article 13.3(b), the definition of Disability per Article 2.10 of the Plan shall be ignored in its entirety and Disability shall be deemed to have the following meaning:

8.      Change in Control.   In the event of a Change in Control (as defined in the Plan) during the Performance Period, the Target Number of Performance Units Awarded shall become payable in full and such payment shall be made within seventy-five (75) calendar days following the date of the Change in Control. The Committee, in its sole discretion, may make such payment of the Target Number of Performance Units Awarded in the form of cash or in Shares (or in a combination thereof). The number of Shares to be issued, if any, shall be equal to the number of earned Performance Units designated by the Committee to be paid in Shares. The amount of cash to be paid if any shall be equal to the Fair Market Value, as defined in the Plan, of a share of the common stock of the Company as of the date of the Change in Control multiplied by the number of Performance Units designated by the Committee to be paid in cash.
