Dr. John G. Sperling
Deferred Compensation Agreement Dated 12/31/93(1)
not applicable
Pursuant to his deferred compensation agreement with the Company dated December 31, 1993, Dr. Sperling began to receive, upon his termination of employment with the Company on December 31, 2012, an annuity for life in the annual amount of $850,000, which represents the amount equal to the highest annual rate of base salary in effect for him in any of the last three calendar years preceding the calendar year in which his employment terminated. This annual annuity for Dr. Sperling’s lifetime is payable in equal monthly installments of $70,833. In addition, under the terms of Dr. Sperling’s deferred compensation agreement, upon Dr. Sperling’s death, his designated beneficiary will be paid $2,550,000, which is an amount equal to three times his annual annuity amount. Such death benefit will be payable in 36 equal monthly installments, with the first such installment due on the first day of the month following the month of Dr. Sperling’s death.
Based on a lifetime annuity of $850,000 per year, determined as of the close of the 2013 fiscal year. Such value was calculated by taking the present value of Dr. Sperling’s monthly annuity installments for September 2013 through August 2020, using a 10% discount rate.
