requirements of, Section 162(m). The Board shall specify that the degree of granting, vesting and/or payout is subject to the achievement of one or more objective performance measures established by the Board that are based on the relative or absolute attainment of objective, predetermined levels of share price. Such goals may be absolute in their terms or measured against or in relationship to other companies, and may be based on the three-year moving average per share rather than on spot (daily) share prices. Such performance measures may vary by Participant and may be different for different Awards, may be particular to a Participant or the department, branch, line of business, subsidiary or other unit in which the Participant works, and may cover such period as may be specified by the Board. However, in no case shall performance measures for Robert Keane or the Board be less stringent than those provided in Schedule 2.
(c)Adjustments. With respect to any Award that is intended to qualify as “performance-based compensation” under Section 162(m), the Board may adjust downwards, but not upwards, the number of Shares payable pursuant to such Award, and the Board may not waive the achievement of the applicable performance measures except in the case of the death or disability of the Participant or a Change in Control as defined in Section 7, below.
(d)Other. The Board has the power to impose such other restrictions on Awards intended to qualify as “performance-based compensation” under Section 162(m), as it may deem necessary or appropriate to ensure that such Awards satisfy all requirements of Section 162(m).
