Determination of Good Faith
For purposes of any determination of good faith, Indemnitee shall be deemed to have acted in good faith if Indemnitee’s action is based on the records or books of account of the Enterprise, including financial statements, or on information supplied to Indemnitee by the officers of the Enterprise in the course of their duties, or on the advice of legal counsel for the Enterprise or the Board of Directors of the Enterprise or any counsel selected by any committee of the Board of Directors of the Enterprise or on information or records given or reports made to the Enterprise by an independent certified public accountant or by an appraiser, investment banker, compensation consultant, or other expert selected with reasonable care by the Enterprise or the Board of Directors of the Enterprise or any committee thereof. The provisions of this Section 10 shall not be deemed to be exclusive or to limit in any way the other circumstances in which the Indemnitee may be deemed to have met the applicable standard of conduct. Whether or not the foregoing provisions of this Section are satisfied, it shall in any event be presumed that Indemnitee has at all times acted in good faith and in a manner Indemnitee reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Company.
Good Reason Defined
For purposes of this Agreement, “Good Reason” shall exist if, without the Executive’s express written consent, the Company: (i) materially reduces or decreases the Executive’s Base Salary or Incentive Compensation opportunity level from the level in effect on the Effective Date (or some subsequent higher level put into effect by the Board subsequent to the Effective Date), unless such reduction or decrease is in connection with an across-the-board reduction or decrease in the Base Salaries or Incentive Compensation opportunity levels of all the Company’s other senior level executives, (ii) willfully fails to include the Executive in any incentive compensation plans, bonus plans, or other plans and benefits provided by the Company to other executive level executives, (iii) materially reduces, decreases or diminishes the nature, status or duties and responsibilities of the Position from those in effect on the Effective Date, and such reduction, decrease or diminution is not reasonably related to or the result of an adverse change in the Executive’s performance of assigned duties and responsibilities, or (iv) requires the Executive to (A) regularly perform the duties and responsibilities of the Position at, or (B) relocate the Executive’s principal place of employment to, a location which is more than fifty (50) miles from the location of the Executive’s principal place of employment as of the Effective Date. Notwithstanding the above, Good Reason shall not include the death, Disability or voluntary retirement of the Executive or any other voluntary action taken by or agreed to by the Executive related to the Position or his employment with the Company or its Subsidiaries. Further, Good Reason shall not include any of the events or conditions described in items (i), (ii), (iii) or (iv) above unless the Executive provides notice to the Company of the existence of the event or condition within ninety (90) days of the initial existence of the event or condition, the Company fails to cure such event or condition within thirty (30) days of receiving the Employee’s initial notice, and the Executive terminates employment with a subsequent written notice to the Company after such thirty (30) day cure period but within ninety (90) days after the Executive provides the initial written notice to the Company of the existence of such event or condition. If requested by the Company, the Executive shall continue to work exclusively for the Company during such thirty (30) day cure period; provided, however, the Company shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate this Agreement at any time during such thirty (30) day cure period upon written notice to the Executive.
DETERMINATION OF TOP HEAVY STATUS
If this Plan is the only qualified plan maintained by the Employer, the Plan is top heavy for a Plan Year if the top heavy ratio as of the Determination Date exceeds 60%. The top heavy ratio is a fraction, the numerator of which is the sum of the present value of Accrued Benefits of all Key Employees as of the Determination Date and the denominator of which is a similar sum determined for all Employees. The Advisory Committee must include in the top heavy ratio, as part of the present value of Accrued Benefits, any contribution not made as of the Determination Date but includible under Code Section 416 and the applicable Treasury regulations, and distributions made within the Determination Period. The Advisory Committee must calculate the top heavy ratio by disregarding the Accrued Benefit (and distributions, if any, of the Accrued Benefit) of any Non-Key Employee who was formerly a Key Employee, and by disregarding the Accrued Benefit (including distributions, if any, of the Accrued Benefit) of an individual who has not received credit for at least one Hour of Service with the Employer during the Determination Period. The Advisory Committee must calculate the top heavy ratio, including the extent to which it must take into account distributions, rollovers and transfers, in accordance with Code Section 416 and the regulations under that Code section. If the Employer maintains other qualified plans (including a simplified employee pension plan), or maintained another such plan which now is terminated, this Plan is top heavy only if it is part of the Required Aggregation Group, and the top heavy ratio for the Required Aggregation Group and for the Permissive Aggregation Group, if any, each exceeds 60%. The Advisory Committee will calculate the top heavy ratio in the same manner as required by the first paragraph of this Section 1.33, taking into account all plans within the Aggregation Group. To the extent the Advisory Committee must take into account distributions to a Participant, the Advisory Committee must include distributions from a terminated plan which would have been part of the Required Aggregation Group if it were in existence on the Determination Date. The Advisory Committee will calculate the present value of accrued benefits under defined benefit plans or simplified employee pension plans included within the group in accordance with the terms of those plans, Code Section 416 and the regulations under that Code section. If a Participant in a defined benefit plan is a Non-Key Employee, the Advisory Committee will determine his accrued benefit under the accrual method, if any, which is applicable uniformly to all defined benefit plans maintained by the Employer or, if there is no uniform method, in accordance with the slowest accrual rate permitted under the fractional rule accrual method described in Code Section 411(b)(1)(C). If the Employer maintains a defined benefit plan, the Employer must specify in Adoption Agreement Section 3.18 the actuarial assumptions (interest and mortality only) the Advisory Committee will use to calculate the present value of benefits from a defined benefit plan. If an aggregated plan does not have a valuation date coinciding with the Determination Date, the Advisory Committee must value the Accrued Benefits in the aggregated plan as of the most recent valuation date falling within the twelve-month period ending on the Determination Date, except as Code Section 416 and applicable Treasury regulations require for the first and second plan year of a defined benefit plan. The Advisory Committee will calculate the top heavy ratio with reference to the Determination Dates that fall within the same calendar year.
Computation of Consideration
To the extent that any Additional Shares of Common Stock or any Common Stock Equivalents (or any warrants or other rights therefor) shall be issued for cash consideration, the consideration received by the Issuer therefor shall be the amount of the cash received by the Issuer therefor, or, if such Additional Shares of Common Stock or Common Stock Equivalents are offered by the Issuer for subscription, the subscription price, or, if such Additional Shares of Common Stock or Common Stock Equivalents are sold to underwriters or dealers for public offering without a subscription offering, the initial public offering price (in any such case subtracting any amounts paid or receivable for accrued interest or accrued dividends and without taking into account any compensation, discounts or expenses paid or incurred by the Issuer for and in the underwriting of, or otherwise in connection with, the issuance thereof). In connection with any merger or consolidation in which the Issuer is the surviving corporation (other than any consolidation or merger in which the previously outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Issuer shall be changed to or exchanged for the stock or other securities of another corporation), the amount of consideration therefore shall be, deemed to be the fair value of such portion of the assets and business of the nonsurviving corporation as the Board may determine to be attributable to such shares of Common Stock or Common Stock Equivalents, as the case may be. Such determination of the fair value of such consideration shall be made by an Independent Appraiser. The consideration for any Additional Shares of Common Stock issuable pursuant to the terms of any Common Stock Equivalents shall be the consideration received by the Issuer for issuing such Common Stock Equivalents, plus the additional consideration, if any, payable to the Issuer upon the exercise of the right of conversion or exchange in such Common Stock Equivalents. In the event of any consolidation or merger of the Issuer in which the Issuer is not the surviving corporation or in which the previously outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Issuer shall be changed into or exchanged for the stock or other securities of another corporation, or in the event of any sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Issuer for stock or other securities of any corporation, the Issuer shall be deemed to have issued a number of shares of its Common Stock for stock or securities or other property of the other corporation computed on the basis of the actual exchange ratio on which the transaction was predicated, and for a consideration equal to the fair market value on the date of such transaction of all such stock or securities or other property of the other corporation. In the event any consideration received by the Issuer for any securities consists of property other than cash, the fair market value thereof at the time of issuance or as otherwise applicable shall be as determined in good faith by the Board. In the event Common Stock is issued with other shares or securities or other assets of the Issuer for consideration which covers both, the consideration computed as provided in this Section 4(f)(i) shall be allocated among such securities and assets as determined in good faith by the Board.
Definition of Total Disability
Total disability means that the employee is unable, because of sickness or accident, to perform the duties of their regular occupation. This definition applies for the first twenty-four (24) months of payments. After this time, the inability to perform an occupation for which the employee is reasonably fitted by training, education or experience will constitute total disability. It is not required that an employee be confined to home, but they must be under the regular care of a physician.
Determination of Adverse Consequences
The Parties shall take into account the time cost of money (using the Applicable Rate as the discount rate) in determining Adverse Consequences for purposes of this Section 8. All indemnification payments under this Section 8 shall be deemed adjustments to the Purchase Price.
