This program document explains the Annual Cash Bonus Program (the “Program”) of Marathon Petroleum Corporation.

The Program is a sub-plan operating under the Amended and Restated Marathon Petroleum Corporation 2012 Incentive Compensation Plan (the “Plan”), and any successor shareholder-approved omnibus equity plan, which are hereby incorporated into this document by reference. All Awards under the Program are granted pursuant to Section 7 of the Plan (or applicable provisions of any other Plan). Capitalized terms not specifically defined herein have the meanings specified in the Plan. In the event of any conflict between the Program and the Plan, the terms of the Plan shall control.

Program Objectives

The purpose of the Program is to motivate and reward Eligible Employees for achieving short-term (annual) business objectives that drive overall shareholder value while encouraging responsible risk taking and accountability.

“Affiliate” means, any person or entity controlling, controlled by, or under common control with such person.

“Award” means a Stock Award, a Cash Award or an award of Incentive Stock Options, Non-qualified Stock Options, Stock Appreciation Rights, Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Unit Award, or Cash Award granted to a Participant pursuant to the provisions of the Plan, any of which the Committee or its delegate may structure to qualify in whole or in part as a Performance Award.

any person (as such term is used in Sections 13(d) and 14(d) of the Exchange Act) (a “Person”) is or becomes the “beneficial owner” (as defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act), directly or indirectly, of securities of the Corporation (not including the amount of the securities

Page 1 of 14

beneficially owned by such person, any such securities acquired directly from the Corporation or its Affiliates) representing twenty percent (20%) or more of the combined voting power of the Corporation’s then outstanding voting securities; provided, however, that for purposes of this Plan the term “Person” shall not include (A) the Corporation or any of its subsidiaries, (B) a trustee or other fiduciary holding securities under an employee benefit plan of the Corporation or any of its subsidiaries, (C) an underwriter temporarily holding securities pursuant to an offering of such securities, or (D) a corporation owned, directly or indirectly, by the stockholders of the Corporation in substantially the same proportions as their ownership of stock of the Corporation; and provided, further, however, that for purposes of this paragraph (i), there shall be excluded any Person(s) who become(s) such a beneficial owner in connection with an Excluded Transaction (as defined in paragraph (iii) below); or

the following individuals cease for any reason to constitute a majority of the number of directors then serving: individuals who, on the date hereof, constitute the Board and any new director (other than a director whose initial assumption of office is in connection with an actual or threatened election contest including, but not limited to, a consent solicitation, relating to the election of directors of the Corporation) whose appointment or election by the Board or nomination for election by the Corporation’s stockholders was approved or recommended by a vote of at least two-thirds (2/3) of the directors then still in office who either were directors on the date hereof or whose appointment, election or nomination for election was previously so approved or recommended; or

there is consummated a merger or consolidation of the Corporation or any direct or indirect subsidiary thereof with any other corporation, other than a merger or consolidation (an “Excluded Transaction”) which would result in the voting securities of the Corporation outstanding immediately prior thereto continuing to represent (either by remaining outstanding or by being converted into voting securities of the surviving corporation or any parent thereof) at least 50% of the combined voting power of the voting securities of the entity surviving the merger or consolidation (or the parent of such surviving entity) immediately after such merger or consolidation,

or the shareholders of the Corporation approve a plan of complete liquidation of the Corporation; or there is consummated the sale or other disposition of all or substantially all of the Corporation’s assets; or

A Change in Control shall not be deemed to occur if the Company undergoes a bankruptcy, liquidation, or reorganization under the United States Bankruptcy Code.

Notwithstanding the preceding provisions, to the extent an Award provides for the payment of deferred compensation within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code,

All of the above entities are collectively referred to as “Company” or “Marathon Petroleum” for purposes of this document.
“Eligible Employees” means regular full-time and regular part-time Company employees who on the last day of the last pay period completed for the Performance Period are assigned to a salary grade within the Company salary structure. Employees who are eligible for other annual incentive compensation programs (e.g., a trader bonus program) are not eligible for the Annual Cash Bonus Program. However, eligibility for employees of Speedway LLC is limited to those classified as President during the Performance Period. Eligible Employees may also include employees of other companies selected by the Committee and select employees of an Affiliate as approved by the Committee.

“Eligible Wages” for non-Officer employees include:

base wages paid for time worked and wages deferred during the Performance Period, and

Eligible Wages for non-Officer employees exclude non-cash compensation, equity-based compensation, allowances, reimbursements, premiums and any bonus or recognition payments made. They also exclude wages paid or processed by a third party. Eligible wages are the amounts specified above before (i) deductions for taxes or benefits, and (ii) deferrals of compensation pursuant to any Company or Affiliate-sponsored plan.

Eligible Wages for employees designated as Officers shall be equal to their annualized base salary in effect on the last day of the Performance Period. However, Eligible Wages for Officers who retire, are hired or who die during the Performance Period shall be equal to their actual base wages paid plus any compensation deferred during the Performance Period.

In the event of a Change in Control, Eligible Wages shall be the actual wages paid during the Performance Period, as of the date of Change in Control, for all employees.

“Performance Period” means any fiscal year or such other measurement period determined by the Committee or its delegate in their sole discretion.
“Performance Criteria” shall mean any one or more of the following performance criteria that are in the Plan and were approved by shareholders (or other performance criteria approved by shareholders in the Plan), either individually, alternatively, or in any combination, applied to either the Company as a whole or to a business unit or Subsidiary or Affiliate, either individually, alternatively or in any combination, and measured either quarterly, annually, or cumulatively over a period of years, on an absolute basis or relative to a pre-established target, to previous years’ results or to a designated comparison group, in each case as specified by the Committee or its delegate: (i) revenue, (ii) income measures (which include revenue, gross margin, income from operations, net income, net sales, earnings per share, earnings before interest, depreciation, taxes, and amortization (“EBIDTA”), earnings before interest, taxes and amortization (“EBITA”) and earnings before interest and taxes (“EBIT), and economic value added, (iii) expense measures (which include costs of goods sold, selling, finding and development costs, general and administrative expenses, and overhead costs), (iv) operating measures (which include refinery throughput, mechanical availability, productivity, operating income, funds from operations, product quality, cash from operations, after-tax operating income, market share, margin, and sales volumes), (v) margins (which include crack-spread measures), (vi) refined product measures, (vii) cash management and cash flow measures (which include net cash flow from operating activities, working capital, receivables management and related customer terms), (vii) liquidity measures (which include earnings before or after the effect of certain items such as interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, improvement in or attainment of working capital levels, and free cash flow (viii) leverage measures (which include debt-to-equity ratio, debt reduction and net debt), (ix) market measures (which include market share,

Participants and Target Funding

The Committee shall establish in writing (1) the Eligible Employees who will be Participants in the Program, (2) each Participant's target funding percentage for such Performance Period or the formula for determining each Participant's Award and (3) the applicable performance objective or objectives for such Performance Period which will be based on the Performance Criteria. Each Participant’s funding range will have a threshold of 0% and a maximum of two times (2X) their target funding percentage.

Threshold funding for individual metrics is one-half (.5X) of target and the maximum that can be funded is two times (2X) target. Percentages may be rounded. No metric will fund when results are below threshold performance.

Page 5 of 14

Funding ranges for Participants shall be based on grade:

Performance Metrics

The Committee, or its delegate, will establish performance metrics with threshold, target and maximum performance criteria. All performance criteria approved by the Committee are incorporated into the Program document by this reference for the applicable Performance Period.

When any final performance metric result falls between threshold and target or between target and maximum performance levels, linear interpolation will be used to determine funding based on actual performance. For example, if the final result of a metric is halfway between threshold and target performance levels, the funding for that metric would be halfway between the corresponding payout percentages.

Page 6 of 14

Individual Funding vs. Payout

The operation of this Program funds individual payments based on pre-established metrics and subjective metrics as approved by the Committee. The final payout to each Participant is determined based on the assessment of their management considering each Participant’s relative performance to other employees. However, no Participant can be awarded more than their maximum percent as specified in the funding ranges table in “Participants and Target Funding” above without approval of the Committee or its delegate.

Hires, Promotions and Transfers

In the case of a newly hired, promoted, or transferred Participant, the Committee may provide for a guaranteed bonus, or a bonus that would exceed the bonus that would otherwise be payable in the Program.

Participants who change from one eligible position to another during the Performance Period may experience a change to their Program target funding, individual objectives or the formula for determining each Participant’s Award. In this situation, funding shall be based on the associated target level and business unit for the position held by the Participant on the last day of the Performance Period, provided the position held is not temporary.

If a Participant transfers to a position that is not eligible (e.g., a casual position) under the Program during the Performance Period, such Participant will be ineligible for any payout under this Program for such Performance Period; provided, however, that if a Participant transfers to a Speedway position that is not eligible under the Program during the Performance Period, such Participant will remain eligible for an Award based on their Eligible Wages paid while a Participant under the Program.

Temporary Assignments

Eligibility and funding targets for employees who are on a temporary assignment on the last day of the last pay period completed for the Performance Period shall be determined based on their regular assignment.

Exclusions and Adjustments

The Committee or its delegate may (A) adjust the actual performance or performance goals (either up or down) and the level of the Performance Award that a Participant may earn under the Program if it determines that the occurrence of external changes or other unanticipated business conditions have materially affected the fairness of the goals and/or have unduly influenced the Company’s ability to meet them, including, without

Page 7 of 14

limitation, events such as material acquisitions, asset write-downs, litigation, claims, judgments or settlements, force majeure events, unlawful acts committed against the Company or its property (including terrorism), labor disputes, legal mandates, accruals for reorganization and restructuring programs and changes in the capital structure of the Company, the effect of changes in tax law or other such laws or provisions affecting reported results, accruals of any amounts for payment under the Program or any other compensation arrangement maintained by the Company, or other events not contemplated at the time the goals are set. In addition, Performance Goals and Performance Awards shall be calculated without regard to any changes in accounting standards or codifications that may be required by the Financial Accounting Standards Board or other standards board or the effect of changes in tax law or other such laws or provisions affecting reported results after such Performance Goals are established.

Approval by Committee

Unless otherwise determined by the Committee, no payments shall be made hereunder in respect of any Performance Period unless the Committee shall approve following the end of the Performance Period that the performance objectives applicable to the Performance Period have been satisfied.

Termination of Employment

Unless otherwise determined by the Committee and except as may otherwise be provided in a Participant's written agreement with the Company or an Affiliate, if a Participant's employment terminates for any reason prior to payment, such Participant shall not be eligible for an Award under the Program, unless the Participant's employment terminates on account of death, Retirement or Severance.

Where a Participant’s employment terminates on account of Retirement or Severance, the Committee will retain the discretion to determine the Award, and payment of the Award will (i) only be made after the end of the Performance Period and as close as practicable to the same time as all other Award payments for such Performance Period, but in no event later than the last day of the calendar year beginning immediately after the Performance Period, and (ii) only be paid to the extent that the performance criteria were achieved.

Any employee who terminates employment for any reason during a Performance Period, other than as a result of Retirement or Severance, and who is subsequently rehired after the Performance Period completes, will not be eligible for payment under the Program for such wages earned during the Performance Period.

Page 8 of 14


Any Participant whose employment terminates on account of Retirement on or after July 1 of a Performance Period shall remain eligible for an Award under the Program, based on his or her Eligible Wages paid during the Performance Period, at the discretion of the Committee. A Participant is considered to have had a “Retirement” if the Participant, at the time of the Participant’s termination of employment:

is at least age 50 with 10 or more years of accredited service; and
is deemed to be in good standing, as determined in the sole discretion of the Committee


“Severance” means the involuntary termination of a Participant’s employment during a Performance Period pursuant to which the Participant becomes eligible for a termination allowance under the Company’s Termination Allowance Plan. However, any Participant who voluntarily requests termination under the Company’s Termination Allowance Plan is not considered to be an Eligible Employee under the Program.

In addition, Participants who would have otherwise been eligible for the Marathon Petroleum Termination Allowance Plan, but who accepted an offer of employment with:

the “buyer” of sold Company assets, or
the “new operator” of a jointly-owned facility, or
a company that has been contracted to perform services being outsourced.

will remain eligible for consideration of an Award provided the termination date is after June 30th of the Performance Period.

Death of Participant

If the death of a Participant occurs:

during a Performance Period, the Participant’s eligibility for the Program will end and a payment will be made to the Participant’s estate as soon as practicable following death, but in all cases no later than the last day of the calendar year beginning immediately after the Performance Period. The payment shall be based on target performance levels for all metrics and the Participant’s Eligible Wages paid during the Performance Period; or

after a Performance Period, but before payment for that Performance Period has been made, the Award amount otherwise deemed payable under the Program will be paid to the Participant’s estate (at the time all other Award payments for such Performance Period are made).

Page 9 of 14

Payment of Awards

Following the Performance Period, each Participant's Award for the Performance Period will be determined in accordance with the terms of the Program and the Participant shall be eligible to receive payment of the Award. The payment of the Award shall occur during the first calendar year beginning immediately after the end of the Performance Period.

The Committee shall determine whether payment of the Award will be in Cash, Common Stock, the right to receive Common Stock, Stock Options or other Awards provided for under the Plan; and whether any such payments will be subject to restrictions on transfer, vesting, forfeiture or deferral requirements; provided, however, that if an Award is subject to Section 409A of the Code, any such action shall only be taken if it complies with Section 409A of the Code. Any equity or equity-based Awards shall be granted under the terms and conditions of the Plan.

Change in Control

Unless otherwise determined by the Committee prior to a Change in Control, and except as otherwise may be provided in a Participant’s written agreement with the Company or Affiliate upon a Change in Control, the Program will automatically terminate and each Participant employed by the Company immediately prior to the Change in Control will be vested and entitled to a pro-rated lump sum payment equal to 100% of the Participant’s target bonus percentage multiplied by the Participant’s Eligible Wages. This payment will be made as soon as administratively practicable following the Change in Control, but in no event later than 45 days from the date of the Change in Control. The timing of the payment within such 45-day period shall be determined solely by the Committee without regard to any tax implications to a Participant.

No Right to Awards

Except as may be provided for under the Change in Control section of the Program, no Participant or other person shall have any claim or right to be granted an Award under the Program. Nothing contained in the Program document shall limit the ability of the Company to make payments or Awards to Participants under any other program, agreement or arrangement; provided, however, that no payment under any other program, agreement, or arrangement will be made because of a failure of a Participant to earn an Award hereunder, and no such payment outside of the Program will be in the nature of or in any way related to make-whole payments for what would have been earned or paid hereunder if the performance goals had been met.

Page 10 of 14

No Right to Employment

Neither the establishment of the Program, nor any action taken hereunder, shall be construed as giving any Participant any right to be retained in the employ of the Company, or participate hereunder in the current or succeeding Performance Periods.


The rights and benefits of a Participant hereunder are personal to the Participant and, except for any payments that may be made following a Participant's death, shall not be subject to any voluntary or involuntary alienation, assignment, pledge, transfer, encumbrance, attachment, garnishment or other disposition.

No Impact on Benefits

Except as may be required by law or otherwise be specifically stated under any employee benefit plan, policy, or program, no amount payable in respect of any Award shall be treated as compensation for purposes of calculating a Participant's right under any such plan, policy, or program; nor shall any Award be treated as compensation for purposes of termination indemnities or other similar rights, except as may be required by law.

No Constraint on Corporate Actions
Nothing in the Program document shall be construed (a) to limit, impair, or otherwise affect the Company's right or power to make adjustments, reclassifications, reorganizations, or changes of its capital or business structure, or to merge or consolidate, or dissolve, liquidate, sell, or transfer all or any part of its business or assets, or (b) to limit the right or power of the Company or any of its Affiliates to take any action which such entity deems to be necessary or appropriate.

Program Administration

The program shall be administered by the Committee, which shall have full authority to:

interpret the Program,
establish, interpret, amend or revoke rules and regulations relating to the operation of the Program,
interpret the Program, to correct any defect, supply any omission or reconcile any inconsistency in the Program,
adopt such rules for the administration, interpretation and application of the Program, and
make all determination and take all other actions necessary or appropriate for the proper administration of the Program.

Page 11 of 14

The Committee has complete, unilateral discretion with respect to all aspects of the operation, administration, design, features, benefits and Awards under the Program and can change, terminate, or modify Awards, or otherwise change any aspect of the Program in its discretion prospectively or retroactively, regardless of anything stated in this document.

The Committee may delegate any or all of their authorities hereunder, provided that the Committee shall, in no event, delegate its authority with respect to the compensation of any Participant deemed to be an “executive officer” as defined in Rule 3b-7 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. No member of the Committee shall be eligible to participate in the Program.


For U.S.-based Participants, any Award received under the Program is subject to all applicable employment withholding taxes in the year paid. For Participants outside the United States, local country tax regulations will apply.


There shall be deducted from all individual payouts any taxes required to be withheld by national, Federal, state provincial or local governments and paid over to such government for the accounts of such Participants.

Subject to compliance with Section 409A of the Code and applicable state withholding laws, the Company may also deduct from an individual Award, at its sole discretion, any and all amounts determined by Company management to be owed to the Company by the Participant.

Affiliate Requirements

Prior to the selection of employees of an Affiliate to participate in the Program, the Committee may require the Affiliate to consent to the participation of such employee or employees in the Program and to the charging of such Affiliate with the amount of any Award which may be made to such employee or employees.

Recoupment / Clawback

Officers are subject to recoupment provisions in the Program, in the case of certain forfeiture events. If the Company is required, pursuant to a determination made by the SEC or the Audit Committee of the Board, to prepare a material accounting restatement

Page 12 of 14

due to the noncompliance of the Company with any financial reporting requirement under applicable securities laws as a result of misconduct, the Audit Committee of the Board may determine that a forfeiture event has occurred based on an assessment of whether an officer knowingly engaged in misconduct, was grossly negligent with respect to misconduct, knowingly failed or was grossly negligent in failing to prevent misconduct or engaged in fraud, embezzlement, or other similar misconduct materially detrimental to the Company.

Upon the Audit Committee’s determination that forfeiture event has occurred, the Company has the right to request and receive reimbursement of any portion of an officer’s bonus from the Program that would not have been earned or paid had the forfeiture event not have taken place.

These recoupment provisions are in addition to the requirements in Section 304 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 which provide that the CEO and CFO shall reimburse the Company for any bonus or other incentive-based or equity-based compensation as well as any related profits received in the 12-month period prior to the filing of an accounting restatement due to non-compliance with financial reporting requirements as a result of Company misconduct.

Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision of this Program to the contrary, the Company may also require that the Participant repay to the Company any compensation paid to the Participant under this Program, as is required by the provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act and the regulations thereunder or any other “clawback” provisions as required by law or by the applicable listing standards of the exchange on which the Corporation’s common stock is listed for trading.

Other Provisions

In all events, whether any Cash Award is paid to a Participant will depend on the decision of the Committee (or its delegate, as appropriate). All Awards are subject to the sole discretion of the Committee or its delegate, and nothing in this document (except as may be provided for in the Change in Control provisions) or any other document describing or referring to the Program shall confer any right whatsoever on any person to be considered for any Award.

The program document does not purport to be complete and is subject to and governed by actions, rules and regulations of the Committee (or its delegate, as appropriate).

The Program document may be changed or discontinued at any time without notice or liability at the sole discretion of the Committee.

Awards shall be subject to and governed by the specific terms and conditions of the Plan, and any applicable Award.

Page 13 of 14

Nothing contained herein shall require the Company to segregate any monies from its general fund or to create any trusts, or to make any special deposits for amounts payable to any Participant.

The Program is intended to provide compensation which is exempt from or which complies with Section 409A of the Code, and ambiguous provisions of the Program, if any, shall be construed in a manner that would cause Awards to be compliant with or exempt from the application of Section 409A of the Code, as appropriate. If any payment, or portion thereof, must be delayed to comply with Section 409A of the Code because a Participant is a “specified employee” as defined in Section 409A(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Code, the payment, or the portion so delayed, shall be made on the soonest date permissible without triggering the additional tax due under Section 409A of the Code. As used in the Program, “termination of Employment” and similar terms shall mean a “separation from service” within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code to the extent an Award provides for the payment of deferred compensation within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code.

No member of the Committee, or employee of the Company or the Corporation, shall be liable for any act done, or determination made in good faith, with respect to the administration of the Program. The Company indemnifies and holds harmless to the fullest extent allowed by law such persons individually and collectively, from and against any and all losses resulting from liability to which the Committee, or the members of the Committee, or employees of the Company or the Corporation may be subjected by reason of any act or conduct (except willful misconduct, fraud or gross negligence) in their official capacities in the administration of the Program, including all expenses reasonably incurred in their defense, in case the Company fails to provide such defense.
Any provision of the Program prohibited by law shall be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition without invalidating the remaining provisions.

The terms of the Program document supersede any written or verbal agreements, representations, proposals, or plans with respect to the subject matter hereof; provided, however, that the forgoing shall not act to supersede an existing written agreement between a Participant and the Company that has been approved by the Committee.
