1






(A)    The Participant may not elect Payment Method 1 for payment of the portion of the Participant’s Account that is attributable to the subject year’s Basic Salary deferred amount if he or she has elected (or under subsection 7.1(a)(2)(D) hereof has been deemed to have elected) Payment Method 2 for payment of the portion of the Participant’s Account that is attributable to an amount of the Participant’s Basic Salary the receipt of which was deferred under the Plan for any Plan Year that was earlier than the Plan Year with respect to which the subject year’s Basic Salary deferred amount is deferred.
(B)    The Participant may not elect Payment Method 2 for payment of the portion of the Participant’s Account that is attributable to the subject year’s Basic Salary deferred amount if he or she has elected Payment Method 1 for payment of the portion of the Participant’s Account that is attributable to an amount of the Participant’s Basic Salary the receipt of which was deferred under the Plan for any Plan Year that was earlier than the Plan Year with respect to which the subject year’s Basic Salary deferred amount is deferred.

(E)    In the event the Participant fails in the applicable deferral form to make any payment method election at all for payment of the portion of the Participant’s Account that is attributable to the subject year’s Basic Salary deferred amount but he or she has elected (or under subsection 7.1(a)(2)(D) hereof has been

2






deemed to have elected) either Payment Method 1 or Payment Method 2 for payment of the portion of the Participant’s Account that is attributable to an amount of the Participant’s Basic Salary the receipt of which was deferred under the Plan for any Plan Year that was earlier than the Plan Year with respect to which the subject year’s Basic Salary deferred amount is deferred, then he or she shall be deemed for all purposes of this subsection 7.1 to have elected the same payment method for payment of the portion of the Participant’s Account that is attributable to the subject year’s Basic Salary deferred amount.
3.    Subsection 7.1(b)(3) of the Plan is amended in its entirety to read as follows.

(A)    commences to be paid as of the earlier of (i) the first day of the first March that begins after the end of the Plan Year in which the Participant separates from service with the Company (or, if the Participant is, on the date on which the Participant separates from service with the Company, a Specified Employee, the later of the first day of the first March that begins after the end of the Plan Year in which the Participant separates from service with the Company or the date immediately following the date which is six months after the date he or she separates from service with the Company) or (ii) any fixed date that is specified by the Participant in his or her new election under this subsection 7.1(b)(3) and that is no earlier than the first day of the first March that occurs on or after the fifth annual anniversary of the applicable Payment Method 3 initial fixed commencement date; and

However, such new election shall not become effective until at least twelve months elapse from the filing of such election with the Committee (and thus will be ineffective should the first day of the first March that begins after the end of the Plan

3






Year in which the Participant separates from service with the Company occur prior to the expiration of such twelve month period).
4.    Section 7.3 of the Plan is amended in its entirety to read as follows.

However, such new election shall not become effective until at least twelve months elapse from the filing of such election with the Committee (and thus will be ineffective should the date on which the Participant separates from service with the Company occur prior to the expiration of such twelve month period).
(3)    If the Participant previously has elected (or been deemed to have elected) under subsection 7.3(b) hereof to have any portion of his or her Account that is attributable to the amount of his or her Company match amount that is credited to his or her Account under the Plan for one or more specific Plan Years that begin on or after January 1, 2015 paid under Payment Method 2, he or she may, by completing a subsequent payment agreement and filing such agreement with a Plan representative not less than twelve months before the first day of the first March that begins after the end of the Plan Year in which the Participant separates from service with the Company, elect to have Payment Method 2 be deemed for purposes of the Participant to be a payment method under which the entire portion of the Participant’s Account that is payable under Payment Method 2:

10






1, 2015 and is the Plan Year for which the subject year’s Company match deferred amount is credited to the Participant’s Account under the Plan, then, the subject year’s Company match deferred amount shall be paid in one lump sum payment as of the first day of the first March that begins after the end of the Plan Year in which the Participant separates from service with the Company (or, if the Participant is, on the date on which the Participant separates from service with the Company, a Specified Employee, the later of the first day of the first March that begins after the end of the Plan Year in which the Participant separates from service with the Company or the date immediately following the date which is six months after the date he or she separates from service with the Company). The Participant may not make any subsequent change to the distribution method provided for in the immediately preceding sentence and such distribution method has no effect on the distribution rules that apply under the foregoing provisions of this subsection 7.3 to the vested portion of the Account of the Participant that is attributable to the amount of the Company match amount that is credited to his or her Account for any other Plan Year.
(2)    Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this subsection 7.3(d) or any other provision of the Plan, if any portion of the subject year’s Company match deferred amount is credited under the terms of the Plan to the Participant’s Account as of a date that is later than the date as of which a payment of such portion would otherwise be made under the foregoing provisions of this subsection 7.3(d) and the Participant is vested in such portion, such portion shall be paid as of the date as of which such portion is credited under the terms of the Plan to the Participant’s Account.
IN ORDER TO EFFECT THE FOREGOING PLAN REVISIONS, the sponsor of the Plan hereby signs this Plan amendment, effective for all purposes as of January 1, 2014.
