Payments to All Other Staff. Each Bonus Award to a Participant who is not a U.S. Senior Staff member shall be paid in cash in a single lump sum. The Company shall withhold all required Tax-Related Items from the Bonus Award Payment. The Bonus Award Payment will be determined by the Company in U.S. dollars, but may be paid to Participants outside the United States in local currency, following conversion of the amount payable using an exchange rate selected by the Company, in its sole discretion. Alternatively, the Bonus Award may be paid in the form of Common Stock or in a combination of cash and Common Stock, as determined by the Committee.  Bonus Award Payments made in Common Stock shall be made in accordance with the provisions of the Equity Incentive Plan.
Employment Terminations. If a Participant’s employment with the Company (or any of its subsidiaries, as applicable) is terminated for any reason other than death or disability prior to payment of any Bonus Award Payment, all of the Participant’s rights under the 2019 AIP shall terminate and the Participant shall not have any right to receive any further payments with respect to any Bonus Award granted under the 2019 AIP. The Committee, in its discretion, may determine what portion, if any, of the Participant’s Bonus Award under the Plan should be paid if the Participant’s employment has been terminated by reason of death or disability.
PLAN ADMINISTRATION
Committee. The 2019 AIP shall be administered by the Compensation Committee of the Board with respect to Participants who are Executive Staff and shall be administered by a committee consisting of the Chief Executive Officer with respect to Participants who are not Executive Staff.
Duties and Powers of Committee. It shall be the duty of the Committee to conduct the general administration of the 2019 AIP in accordance with its provisions. The Committee shall have the power to interpret the 2019 AIP, and to adopt such rules for the administration, interpretation and application of the 2019 AIP as are consistent therewith and to interpret, amend or revoke any such rules. In its absolute discretion, the Board may at any time and from time to time exercise any and all rights and duties of the Committee under the 2019 AIP.
Determinations of the Committee or the Board. All actions taken and all interpretations and determinations made by the Committee or the Board shall be final and binding upon all Participants, the Company and all other interested persons. No members (or former members) of the Committee or the Board shall be personally liable for any action, inaction, determination or interpretation made in good faith with respect to the 2019 AIP or any Bonus Award, and all members of the Committee and the Board shall be fully protected by the Company in respect of any such action, determination or interpretation.
AMENDMENT, SUSPENSION OR TERMINATION OF 2019 AIP
The 2019 AIP is discretionary in nature, and the Committee (or the Board) may suspend, modify or terminate the 2019 AIP at any time or from time to time without advance notice.
MISCELLANEOUS
Recovery of Erroneously Awarded Compensation.  If the Participant is now or is hereafter subject to the Company’s Policy on Recoupment of Incentive Compensation (the “Compensation Recoupment Policy”), any similar policy providing for the recovery of Bonus Awards, proceeds, or payments to a Participant in the event of fraud or as required by applicable laws or governance considerations or in other similar circumstances, then this Bonus Award, and any payments therefrom, are subject to potential recovery by the Company under the circumstances set out in the Compensation Recoupment Policy or such other similar policy as in effect from time to time.

Nothing in this 2019 AIP shall constitute or shall be construed as an employment agreement between a Participant and the Company.
General Creditor Status. Each Bonus Award that may become payable under the 2019 AIP shall be paid solely from the general assets of the Company. No amounts awarded or accrued under the 2019 AIP shall be funded, set aside, subject to interest
