Section 10. Other Stock-Based Awards and Other Benefits.
10.1. Other Stock-Based Awards. The Committee shall have the right to grant Other Stock-Based Awards which may include, without limitation, the grant of Shares based on certain conditions, the payment of cash based on the performance of the Common Stock, and the payment of Shares in lieu of cash under other Company incentive or bonus programs. Payment under or settlement of any such Awards shall be made in such manner and at such times as the Committee may determine.
10.2. Other Benefits. The Committee shall have the right to provide types of Awards under the Plan in addition to those specifically listed utilizing shares of
stock or cash, or a combination thereof, if the Committee believes that such Awards would further the purposes for which the Plan was established. Payment under or settlement of any such Awards shall be made in such manner and at such times as the Committee may determine.
10.3. Substitution or Assumption of Awards. The Committee, from time to time, also may substitute or assume outstanding awards granted by another company, whether in connection with an acquisition of such other company or otherwise, by either (a) granting an Award under the Plan in substitution of such other companys award, or (b) assuming such award as if it had been granted under the Plan if the terms of such assumed award could be applied to an Award granted under the Plan. Such substitution or assumption shall be permissible if the holder of the substituted or assumed award would have been eligible to be granted an Award under the Plan if the other company had applied the rules of the Plan to such grant. In the event the Company assumes an award granted by another company,
the terms and conditions of such award shall remain unchanged, except that the exercise price and the number and nature of Shares issuable upon exercise of any such option will be adjusted pursuant to Section 424(a) of the Code, notwithstanding other provisions of the Plan. In the event the Company elects to grant a new Award rather than assuming an existing option, such new Award may be granted with a similarly adjusted exercise price.
