for Messrs. Sullivan and Rice, a lump sum amount equal to the executive’s incentive compensation for the preceding fiscal year (if not yet paid) plus, for Mr. Sullivan, three times the sum of, and for Mr. Rice, two times the sum of: (i) the greater of the executive’s annual base salary in effect on the date of termination or the highest base salary in effect at any time during the three years immediately preceding the termination date, and (ii) for Messrs.

Rice and Moore, and one and one-half times for Mr. Gordon and Ms. Kastner, the most recent annual premium or other cost for the executive life insurance coverage in effect on the date of termination (or, if greater, the next scheduled annual premium shown on the then current schedule of coverage);

 

 

a lump sum amount equal to the cash value of three years for Mr. Sullivan, two years for Messrs. Rice and Moore, and 18 months for Mr. Gordon and Ms. Kastner, of benefits that the executive would have received had he continued to participate and receive awards under the Restricted Stock Plan (as determined in accordance with the Company’s past practice); and

 

 

the lapse of all transfer restrictions and forfeiture provisions on restricted stock awarded under the 1997 and 2007 Restricted Stock Plans.

The employment agreements provide that the Company will not be obligated to make the lump sum payments or provide the additional benefits described above unless the executive signs a release and waiver of claims and refrains from revoking, rescinding or otherwise repudiating the release of claims during certain time periods.
