(2) If the Performance Percentage for an Award Period was determined by the Committee (pursuant to subsection (1) above) to be greater than 100%, then the Performance Percentage applicable to the remaining Performance Shares of such Award Period shall be such determined Performance Percentage, and
(3) If the Performance Percentage for an Award Period was determined by the Committee (pursuant to subsection (1) above) to be less than or equal to 100%, then the Performance Percentage applicable to the remaining Performance Shares of such Award Period shall be the greater of (x) such other Performance Percentage which may be specified by the Committee (or any sub-committee of the Board which performs duties comparable to the Committee) for such Award Period at the time of the Trigger Event and (y) 100%.
