2016 MiMedx MIP
This Plan is intended to be exempt from the applicable requirements of Section 409A of the Code and shall be construed and interpreted in accordance therewith. The Committee may at any time amend, suspend or terminate this Plan, or any payments to be made hereunder, as necessary to be exempt from Section 409A of the Code. Notwithstanding the preceding, MiMedx shall be liable to any participant or any other person if the Internal Revenue Service or any court or other authority having jurisdiction over such matter determines for any reason that any bonus to be made under this Plan is subject to taxes, penalties or interest as a result of failing to be exempt from, or comply with, Section 409A of the Code. The bonuses under the Plan are intended to satisfy the exemption from Section 409A of the Code for short-term deferrals.
Nothing in the MIP shall be deemed to constitute a contract for the continuance of employment of the participants or bring about a change of status of employment. Neither the action of the Company in establishing this program, nor any provisions hereof, nor any action taken by the Company shall be construed as giving any employee the right to be retained in the employ of the Company for any period of time, or to be employed in any particular position, or at any particular rate of remuneration.
Further, nothing contained herein shall in any manner inhibit the day-to-day conduct of the business of the Company and its subsidiaries, which shall remain within the sole discretion of management of the Company; nor shall any requirements imposed by management or resulting from the conduct of the business of the Company constitute an excuse for, or waiver from, compliance with any goal established under this plan.
No persons shall have any right, vested or contingent, or any claim whatsoever, to be granted any award or receive any payment hereunder, except payments of awards determined and payable in accordance with the specific provisions hereof or pursuant to a specific and properly approved agreement regarding the granting or payment of an award to a designated individual.
Neither this program, nor any payments pursuant to this program, shall affect, or have any application to, any of the Companys life insurance, disability insurance, PTO, medical or other related benefit plans, whether contributory or non-contributory on the part of the employee except as may be specifically provided by the terms of the benefit plan.
All payments pursuant to this program are in gross amounts less applicable withholdings.
