Eligibility. The 1999 Executive Bonus Plan provides that the Committee designate for each Plan Year(s) which executive officers and key employees of the Company and its subsidiaries, if any, will be eligible for a Performance Goal Bonus Award for such Plan Year(s). The Committee designates such individuals prior to the date on which the Committee establishes the “Performance Goals” (as defined below) for a Plan Year(s) (as discussed below). The Committee may designate at any time Performance Goal Bonus Award(s) for one or more executive officers or key employees in respect of more than one Plan Year, provided that the designation shall be made no later than the “Performance Goals Date” (as defined below) of the first Plan Year in respect of which the Performance Goal Bonus Award(s) is granted. A “Plan Year” is the Company's accounting fiscal year or such other period as the Committee in its sole discretion may determine.
