Buyer shall pay, or cause the Companies to pay, to Company Employees (including, for the avoidance of doubt, the individuals set forth on Section 7.09 of the Disclosure Schedule) the bonuses in respect of performance for the 2019 fiscal year beginning on the first day after the end of the 2019 Pre-Closing Bonus Period and ending on December 27, 2019 (the “2019 Post-Closing Bonus Period”) and in accordance with the terms set forth in the “Food Group Bonus Transition” summary document, which was presented on May 17, 2019 to the “Steering Committee” formed by Buyer and Seller for purposes of integration planning (such bonuses, the “2019 Post-Closing Bonuses”); provided that neither Buyer nor any of the Companies shall be responsible for paying a 2019 Post-Closing Bonus in the case of any Company Employee who accepts a job offer from a third-party purchaser of any of the assets of the Companies as part of a divestiture mandated by any Governmental Authority (a “Divestiture Employee”), to the extent that Buyer will provide, and/or the applicable third-party purchaser is contractually obligated to provide, such Divestiture Employee with a bonus opportunity for the 2019 Post-Closing Bonus Period that is no less favorable than the bonus opportunity for such Divestiture Employee immediately prior to the Closing Date. Except in the case of any Divestiture Employees, the 2019 Post-Closing Bonuses shall be paid following the end of the 2019 fiscal year at such time when annual bonuses have historically been paid out by the Companies, subject to continued employment of the applicable Company Employee with Buyer or its Affiliates through the end of the 2019 fiscal year (unless such Company Employee has been terminated without cause). Prior to the Closing, to the extent Seller (as opposed to the Companies) has any obligation to pay any bonuses pursuant to the 2019 Bonus
Plans under any of the agreements listed on Section 7.09 of the Disclosure Schedule, such obligation (if any) shall be assigned to one of the Companies prior to the Closing, and the applicable Company shall assume any such obligation. For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 7.09 shall in no way affect the obligations of Buyer set forth in Section 7.02(a).
