of the tax law limitations on matching company contributions to tax-qualified retirement plans. The deferred amounts, together with the Company contributions (if any), are credited to an account maintained in the participant’s name on the Company’s books in which the participant is fully vested at all times. The account is credited with notional earnings (or losses) based on the participant’s investment elections among a select group of investment funds utilized to track the notional investment return on the account balance. A total of 24 investment funds are available for selection, and the participant may change his or her investment choices daily. The available investment funds used to track such notional investment return are substantially the same as those offered under the Company’s Employee Savings and Investment Plan. The deferred account balance, including the notional investment return, will be payable in either a lump sum or a series of installments over a period of up to ten years (as pre-designated by the participant) following the participant’s termination of employment with the Company or upon one or more dates specified in advance by the participant. In the event the participant dies prior to receiving his or her entire account balance under the plan, his or her beneficiary will receive a lump-sum distribution of the remaining balance.
