Retirement Income Plan

The Company maintains the Retirement Income Plan, which is a nonqualified deferred compensation plan originally maintained by IBP, inc. The Retirement Income Plan is currently frozen, meaning that no further contributions are permitted to be made to the plan. Prior to being frozen, certain individuals of IBP, inc. could defer their compensation to the Retirement Income Plan and receive matching contributions on their deferrals in excess of limits imposed on qualified plans under the Internal Revenue Code. Accounts under the Retirement Income Plan continue to realize gain or loss. Participants may elect how their accounts are invested from the investment options available under the Company’s Retirement Savings Plan plus an investment option paying the prime rate as reported in the Wall Street Journal plus two percentage points. The Retirement Income Plan will terminate after all distributions from the plan have been made.

A participant is eligible for a distribution from the Retirement Income Plan at termination or, if the participant elects, while in-service or on account of a hardship. In-service distributions requested by June 30 are paid in January of the year following the request. Distributions requested on account of hardship may be requested at anytime and distributed when approved by the plan’s administrative committee. Distributions are made in the form elected by the participant from a lump sum payment or annual or biannual installments payable over a period not to exceed 15 years from the later of the date the participant terminates employment or attains age 62. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a participant’s account will be distributed in a lump sum if it does not exceed $50,000 at the time of distribution. If a participant dies prior to distribution of the account, the account will be paid to the participant’s designated beneficiary in ten annual installments following the later of the year the participant dies or would have attained age 62, in a lump sum if the value of the account does not exceed $50,000 at the time of distribution or as the beneficiary elects from the distribution options available to the participant. If a participant dies after distributions have begun to the participant, the participant’s designated beneficiary receives payment in accordance with the participant’s distribution election.

The assets of the Retirement Income Plan, including NEOs’ deferrals, are subject to the claims of our creditors and benefits are paid from a trust we have established to secure our obligations under the plan.
