2.    Administration of the Plan.
(a)    Authority of Committee. The Plan shall be administered by the Committee, which shall have full power and authority to construe, interpret and administer the Plan and shall have the exclusive right to establish, adjust, pay or decline to pay an Incentive Bonus for each Participant. Such power and authority shall include the right to exercise discretion to reduce or increase the


Incentive Bonus payable to a Participant. Decisions of the Committee shall be final, conclusive and binding on all persons or entities, including the Company, its Affiliates, any Participant and any person claiming any benefit or right under the Plan.
(b)    Delegation to CEO. The Company’s Chief Executive Officer has the authority to grant Incentive Bonuses to Participants, other than Section 16 Employees, and to determine the terms and conditions of such Incentive Bonuses, subject to the limitations of the Plan and such other limitations and guidelines as the Committee may deem appropriate. Such delegation of authority includes, but is not limited to, the authority to (i) determine the employees or classes of employees who are eligible to participate in the Plan for a Performance Period, (ii) establish the applicable Performance Goals and payout schedule, (iii) determine attainment of the Performance Goals and the amount available for each Participant’s Incentive Bonus based upon the payout schedule, and (iv) adjust, pay or decline to pay Incentive Bonuses to Participants to the same extent as the Committee has authority to do so for Section 16 Employees. To the extent of the aforementioned delegation, references in the Plan to the “Committee” shall be deemed to refer to the Company’s Chief Executive Officer.
3.    Eligibility. The Committee shall designate the employees or classes of employees of the Company and its Affiliates who shall be eligible “Participants” in the Plan for a Performance Period.
4.    Awards. The Committee shall establish, in writing, the Performance Goal(s) to be attained for each Participant for each Performance Period based on one or more Performance Measures, and the payout schedule detailing the total amount which may be available for payout to each Participant based upon the relative level of attainment of the Performance Goal(s) with respect to such Performance Measure(s).
5.    Committee Certification. As soon as reasonably practicable after the end of each Performance Period, but in no event later than the 15th day of the third month following the end of the Participant’s tax year (or, if later, the Company’s tax year) in which the Participant’s right to a payment vests, the Committee shall determine, in writing, (i) whether and to what extent the Performance Goal(s) for such year were satisfied, and (ii) the amount available for each Participant’s Incentive Bonus for such year based upon the payout schedule established under Section 4 for such Participant for such year.
6.    Termination of Employment. Unless determined otherwise by the Committee, if a Participant’s employment with the Company and its Affiliates terminates during the Performance Period due to Retirement, death, or Disability, the Participant shall be entitled to receive a pro rata portion of the Incentive Bonus for such Performance Period in an amount equal to the Incentive Bonus the Participant would have received had he or she remained employed until the end of the Performance Period, based on actual performance for such Performance Period and pro-rated based on the number of days in the Performance Period prior to the Participant’s termination of employment. Unless the Committee determines otherwise, if a Participant’s employment terminates prior to the last day of a Performance Period for any other reason, no Incentive Bonus will be payable to such Participant with respect to such Performance Period.


7.    Payment of Incentive Bonuses. The amount of the Incentive Bonus actually paid to a Participant for a Performance Period shall be such amount as determined by the Committee in its sole discretion, including zero, provided that the actual Incentive Bonus paid shall not exceed the lesser of (i) the amount determined as payable by the Committee under Section 5 for the Performance Period or, (ii) the Maximum Potential Incentive Bonus. Incentive Bonuses shall be paid in cash lump sums at such times and on such terms as are determined by the Committee in its sole and absolute discretion, but in no event later than the 15th day of the third month following the end of the Participant’s tax year or the Company’s tax year (whichever is later) in which the Participant’s right to the payment vests (the “short-term deferral” period as described in Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-1(b)(4)).
8.    No Right to Continued Employment. Neither the establishment of the Plan, the provision for or payment of any amounts hereunder, nor any action of the Company, any Affiliate, the Board or the Committee with respect to the Plan shall be held or construed to confer upon any person any legal right to continue to serve as an officer or employee of the Company or any Affiliate. The Company expressly reserves any and all rights to discharge any Participant without incurring liability to any person under the Plan or otherwise.
9.    Withholding. The Company shall have the right to withhold, or require a Participant to remit to the Company, an amount sufficient to satisfy any applicable federal, state, local or foreign withholding tax requirements imposed with respect to the payment of any Incentive Bonus.
10.    Nontransferability. Except as expressly provided by the Committee, the rights and benefits under the Plan are personal to the Participant and shall not be subject to any voluntary or involuntary alienation, assignment, pledge, transfer or other disposition.
11.    Unfunded Plan. The Company shall have no obligation to reserve or otherwise fund in advance any amounts that are or may in the future become payable under the Plan. Any funds that the Company, acting in its sole and absolute discretion, determines to reserve for future payments under the Plan may be commingled with other funds of the Company and need not in any way be segregated from other assets or funds held by the Company. A Participant’s rights to payment under the Plan shall be limited to those of a general creditor of the Company.
12.    Repayment/Forfeiture of Incentive Bonus. If the Company or any Affiliate, as a result of misconduct, is required to prepare an accounting restatement due to material noncompliance with any financial reporting requirement under the securities laws, then (a) any Participant whose Incentive Bonus is subject to automatic forfeiture due to such misconduct and restatement under Section 304 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, and (b) any Participant who the Committee determines either knowingly engaged in or failed to prevent the misconduct, or whose actions or in actions with respect to the misconduct and restatement constituted gross negligence, shall be required to reimburse the Company the amount of any payment of any Incentive Bonus earned or accrued during the twelve month period following the first public issuance or filing with the SEC (whichever first occurred) of the financial document embodying such financial reporting requirement. To the extent such Incentive Bonus was deferred under a nonqualified deferred compensation plan maintained by the Company or any Affiliate rather than paid to the Participant, the amount of bonus deferred (and any earnings thereon) shall be forfeited.


13.    Adoption, Amendment, Suspension and Termination of the Plan.
(a)    The Plan was originally effective for the fiscal year of Perrigo Company commencing July 1, 2008. This amended and restated Plan shall be effective as of the date set forth in the introductory paragraph above and shall continue in effect until terminated as provided below.
(b)    Subject to the limitations set forth in paragraph (c) below, the Board or the Committee may at any time suspend or terminate the Plan and may amend it from time to time in such respects as the Board or the Committee may deem advisable, subject to any requirement for stockholder approval imposed by applicable law.
(c)    No amendment, suspension or termination of the Plan shall, without the consent of the person affected thereby, materially, adversely alter or impair any rights or obligations under any Incentive Bonus previously awarded under the Plan.
14.    Governing Law. The validity, interpretation and effect of the Plan, and the rights of all persons hereunder, shall be governed by and determined in accordance with the laws of the State of Michigan, other than the choice of law rules thereof. With respect to Incentive Bonuses granted to Participants who are foreign nationals or who are employed outside the United States, the Plan and any rules and regulations relating to the Plan shall be governed by the laws of the State of Michigan (without reference to principles of conflicts of laws) and, to the extent that applicable foreign law differs from Michigan law, in accordance with applicable foreign law.
