Equity or Profits Interest Awards
In 1997, the Company established the Snapple Beverage Group, Inc. 1997 Stock Option Plan, and pursuant to that plan awarded options to executives of the Company and to its subsidiaries to acquire shares of Snapple Beverage Group, Inc., a subsidiary of the Company. That plan terminated in 2000 when the Triarc Beverage Group was sold. The Compensation Committee and/or the Performance Committee may, from time to time in the future, consider awarding certain executive officers of the Company and its subsidiaries equity or profits interests in subsidiaries (or other equity interests) of the Company in order to motivate such executives to achieve the Company's business objectives.
