Changes in Control or Reorganizations. The 2002 Plan also provides that upon (i) the acquisition by any person of 50% or more of the combined voting power of the Company's outstanding securities entitled to vote generally in the election of directors, or (ii) a majority of the directors of the Company being individuals who are not nominated by the Board of Directors (a “Plan Change of Control”), any outstanding options granted under the 2002 Plan shall become fully and immediately exercisable and any restrictions on vesting applicable to any Restricted Shares or Restricted Share Units will lapse and such Restricted Shares or Restricted Share Units will be delivered free and clear of all transferability restrictions. The acquisition of any portion of the combined voting power of the Company by Nelson Peltz or Peter W. May or by any person affiliated with such persons will not constitute a Plan Change of Control. In addition, the 2002 Plan provides that in the event that the Company is merged or consolidated with another corporation, or in the event that all or substantially all of the assets of the Company are acquired by another corporation, or in the event of a reorganization or liquidation of the Company (each such event being hereinafter referred to as a “Reorganization Event”) or in the event that the Board of Directors shall propose that the Company enter into a Reorganization Event, then the Committee may in its discretion take any or all of the following actions: (i) by written notice to each optionee, provide that his or her options and/or SARs will be terminated or repurchased by the Company unless exercised within thirty days (or such longer period as the Committee shall determine in its sole discretion) after the date of such notice (without acceleration of the exercisability of such options); and (ii) advance the date or dates upon which any or all outstanding options shall be exercisable.
