RETIREMENT PLAN AND RESTATED KEY PLAN
As of December 1, 2004, annual payments under the Disney Salaried Retirement Plan and the Amended and Restated Key Plan would be based upon an average compensation of $973,269 for Mr. Eisner, $1,713,986 for Mr. Iger, $788,865 for Mr. Staggs, $788,865 for Mr. Murphy and $728,477 for Mr. Braverman. Mr. Eisner has 20 years, Mr. Iger has five years, Mr. Staggs has 15 years, Mr. Murphy has 16 years and Mr. Braverman has two years of credited service.
Prior to transfer to The Walt Disney Company, Mr. Iger and Mr. Braverman were employed by ABC, Inc. and covered under the ABC, Inc. Retirement Plan and the Benefit Equalization Plan of ABC, Inc. Mr. Igers total combined estimated annual benefit payable at age 65 under these ABC plans is $648,774, determined on a straight-life annuity basis with credited service of 25 years accumulated prior to Mr. Igers transfer. Mr. Bravermans total combined estimated annual benefit payable at age 65 under these ABC plans is $139,125, determined on a straight life annuity basis with credited service of nine years accumulated prior to Mr. Bravermans transfer. Benefits under the ABC, Inc. Retirement Plan are based primarily on a participants credited years of service and average compensation while a participant under the plan. Average compensation is based on the highest five consecutive years of compensation during the last ten-year period of active plan participation, and compensation consists of all wages and bonus payments, exclusive of expense allowances and reimbursements, fringe benefits and stock option income. Like the Companys Amended and Restated Key Plan, the Benefits Equalization Plan of ABC, Inc. is a non-qualified, non-funded plan that provides eligible participants retirement benefits in excess of the compensation limits and maximum benefit accruals that apply to tax-qualified plans. Participant contributions are not required, or allowed, under the ABC plans. In the event that either Mr. Iger or Mr. Braverman, at a future date, becomes entitled to a greater aggregate retirement benefit by crediting all of his years of ABC service under the Disney plans instead of the ABC plans, he will be entitled to receive the greater benefit.
