determine the size and terms of an Award (subject to the limitations imposed on
Awards in Section 5 below), to modify the terms of any Award that has been
granted, to determine the time when Awards will be made, the amount of any
payments pursuant to such Awards, and the Performance Period to which they
relate, to establish performance objectives in respect of such Performance
Periods and to determine whether such performance objectives were attained. The
Committee is authorized to interpret the
Plan, to establish, amend and rescind any rules and regulations relating to the
Plan, and to make any other determinations that it deems necessary or desirable
for the administration of the Plan. The Committee may correct any defect or
omission or reconcile any inconsistency in the Plan in the manner and to the
extent the Committee deems necessary or desirable. Any decision of the Committee
in the interpretation and administration of the Plan, as described herein, shall
lie within its sole and absolute discretion and shall be final, conclusive and
binding on all parties concerned. Determinations made by the Committee under the

or not such Participants are similarly situated. The Committee shall have the
right to deduct from any payment made under the Plan any federal, state, local
or foreign income or other taxes required by law to be withheld with respect to
such payment. The Committee may delegate to one or more employees of the Company
or any of its Subsidiaries, including, but not limited to the Company's Chief
Executive Officer, the authority to take actions on its behalf pursuant to the

4. ELIGIBILITY AND PARTICIPATION.
The Committee shall determine the executive officers and, upon the
recommendation of the Chief Executive Officer, such other persons who shall be
Participants for any Performance Period. Participants shall be selected from
among the employees of the Company and any of its Subsidiaries. The designation
of Participants may be made individually or by groups or classifications of
employees, as the Committee deems appropriate.
(a) Performance Goals. Awards under the Plan shall be conditioned on the
attainment of written performance goals which may be corporate and/or individual
goals. Performance goals shall be recommended by the Chief Executive Officer and
determined and approved by the Committee for any Performance Periods. The
Committee shall determine whether and to what extent each performance goal has
been met. In determining whether and to what extent a performance goal has been
met, the Committee shall consider the recommendation of the Chief Executive
Officer (other than with respect to his Award) and may consider such other
matters as the Committee deems appropriate.
(b) Weighting of Goals. The percentage of any Award payable pursuant to
the Plan shall be based on the weights assigned to the applicable performance
goal. Unless determined otherwise by the Committee, in the case of multiple
individual performance goals, each such goal shall be given equal weight.
(c) Target Bonus. The Committee shall determine and specify a target bonus
amount to be payable pursuant to an Award for each Participant.
(d) Amount Payable. The amount payable pursuant to an Award shall be
determined by the Committee in its sole discretion based on the applicable
target bonus amount, the prescribed weighting of the performance goals, and the
Committee's determination of whether and to what extent each applicable
performance goal has been met. The Committee shall establish a threshold of
operating profit (excluding equity award expense; results of operations for
entities acquired or disposed of during the Performance Period; and the effect
of other non-recurring gains or losses, as determined in the sole discretion of
the Committee) for the Company below which no Award will be paid.
(e) Payment. The amount of the Award payable as determined by the
Committee for any Performance Period shall be paid to the participant at such
time as determined by the Committee in its sole discretion after the end of the
Performance Period. The Committee shall have the discretion to decrease, but not
increase, the amount of any payment otherwise payable pursuant to an Award based
on such factors as it shall deem appropriate, but will consider the
recommendation of the Chief Executive Officer prior to making any such
(f) Termination of Employment. If a Participant dies, retires, is assigned
to a different position or is granted a leave of absence, or if the
Participant's employment is otherwise terminated (except with cause by the
Company, as determined by the Committee in its sole discretion) during a
Performance Period, a pro rata share of the Participant's award based on the
period of actual participation may, in the Committee's sole discretion, be paid
to the Participant after the end of any such Performance Period if it would have
become earned and payable had the
Participant's employment status not changed.
6. AMENDMENTS OR TERMINATION.
The Committee may amend, alter or discontinue the Plan, but no amendment,
alteration or discontinuation shall be made which would impair any of the rights
or obligations under any Award theretofore granted to a Participant under the
Plan without such Participant's consent; provided, however, that the Committee
may amend the Plan in such manner as it deems necessary to permit the granting
of Awards meeting the requirements of any applicable law, rule or regulation.
7. NO RIGHT TO EMPLOYMENT.
Neither the Plan nor any action taken hereunder shall be construed as
giving any Participant or other person any right to continue to be employed by
or perform services for the Company or any Subsidiary, and the right to
terminate the employment of or performance of services by any Participant at any
time and for any reason is specifically reserved to the Company and its
8. NONTRANSFERABILITY OF AWARDS.
An Award shall not be transferable or assignable by the Participant other
than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution.
9. OFFSET OF AWARDS.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Committee, in its
sole discretion, may reduce any amounts otherwise payable to any Participant
hereunder in order to satisfy any liabilities owed to the Company or any of its
Subsidiaries by the Participant.
10. ADJUSTMENTS UPON CERTAIN EVENTS.
In the event of any material change in the business assets, liabilities or
prospects of the Company, any division or any Subsidiary, the Committee in its
sole discretion and without liability to any person may make such adjustment, if
any, as it deems to be equitable as to any affected terms of outstanding Awards.
11. MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS.
The Company is the sponsor and legal obligor under the Plan and shall make
all payments hereunder, other than any payments to be made by any of the
Subsidiaries (in which case payment shall be made by such Subsidiary, as
appropriate). The Company shall not be required to establish any special or
separate fund or to make any other segregation of assets to ensure the payment
of any amounts under the Plan, and the Participants' rights to the payment
hereunder shall be no greater than the rights of the Company's (or Subsidiary's)
unsecured creditors. All expenses involved in administering the Plan shall be
borne by the Company.
12. CHOICE OF LAW.
The Plan shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of
the State of Tennessee applicable to contracts made and to be performed in the
State of Tennessee.
13. EFFECTIVENESS OF THE PLAN.
The Plan shall be effective as of the date of its adoption by the
