NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Plan is amended in the following particular, effective as of the date provided below:
Effective as of March 5, 2019, Section 12.3 of the Plan shall be amended to read as follows:
“Section 12.3. Effective as of the Distribution, as defined in the Separation Agreement, each Account with amounts deemed invested in SLM Corporation common stock pursuant to the Predecessor Plan will be credited with a number of shares of SLM BankCo common stock equal to a fraction, the numerator of which is the product of the Pre-Distribution SLM BankCo Share Price and the number of shares of SLM Corporation common stock credited to such account and the denominator of which is the Post-Distribution SLM BankCo Share Price, rounded up to the nearest whole share in replacement of shares of SLM Corporation common stock credited to such account. Such amounts will be distributed, at the time otherwise specified in the Plan, in the form Sallie Mae common stock. Following the Distribution, any additional deferrals deemed to be invested in company stock will be deemed to be invested in Sallie Mae common stock. Notwithstanding the foregoing, dividends declared on deferred Sallie Mae common stock pursuant to the Plan shall be deemed to be reinvested in deferred Sallie Mae common stock on behalf of each Participant’s Distribution Option Account in accordance with the Plan’s recordkeeping procedures.”
FURTHER RESOLVED, that the members of the Committee (and any employee of SLM Corporation authorized by the Committee) are hereby authorized and directed to take all such actions, execute all such documents, and undertake any other actions that are necessary or desirable, in their discretion, to effectuate the foregoing in connection with the implementation of the above described actions.
