Profit Sharing

Profit Sharing consists of a single component.  For 2006 through 2009, if the Company has more than $10 million in adjusted pre-tax earnings in the calendar year, 15% of all adjusted pre-tax earnings (7.5% in 2006) will form a pool of money to be divided among approximately 53,000 U.S. employees based on the ratio of each eligible employee’s total wages for the year to the total wages of all eligible employees for the year.  International employees are not eligible for Profit Sharing.  The plan will pay approximately $11 million for 2006.
