During the Employment Period, Executive shall also be eligible to participate in other long-term cash and equity incentive plans, practices, policies, and programs applicable generally to other senior executives of the Company, as determined by the Committee in its sole and absolute discretion.”
This Amendment may be executed in counterparts and each counterpart will be deemed an original.

Except as expressly provided herein, the rest of the Agreement shall remain unaltered and in full force and effect.
