Any cash awards payable under this Plan shall be paid under and pursuant to the terms of the Company’s 2014 Omnibus Equity, Performance Award, and Incentive Compensation Plan (the “Stock Plan”), and the terms of this Plan and any determinations made hereunder shall constitute terms and conditions of the cash award under the Stock Plan. Terms not otherwise defined in this Plan shall have the meaning set forth in the Stock Plan. b. Administrator. The Plan shall be administered by the Committee appointed by the Board of Directors. c. Powers and Duties. The Committee shall have sole discretion and authority to make any and all determinations necessary or advisable for administration of the Plan and may amend or revoke any rule or regulation so established for the proper administration of the Plan. All interpretations, decisions, or determinations made by the Committee pursuant to the Plan shall be final and conclusive. d. Annual Approval. The Committee must approve the Plan and specific financial objectives and targets within the first 90 days of each new fiscal year. 3. Participation Eligibility. a. Each Participant must be (i) a member of the Company’s executive leadership team, (ii) an officer of the Company or (iii) an employee of the Company designated in the discretion of the Committee with responsibilities that may have a significant impact on the Company’s financial or operational results. b. The Committee will approve all initial participation for each new Plan year. The Plan year shall be the fiscal year of the Company. c.

of the end of the fiscal year and must have worked at least three months during the fiscal year to be eligible for any incentive payment. 4. Nature of the Plan. The incentive award is based upon the level of achievement of one or more performance measurement objectives applying business criteria to one or more of the Plan participants, one or more business segments, units or divisions of the Company, or the Company as a whole, whether on an absolute basis, rate basis, or relative to a peer group of companies or other benchmark and may also include a performance measurement objective that evaluates a Plan participant’s individual contributions to the Company, as determined in the discretion of the Committee. The Plan is an annual program that provides for annual measurements of financial and/or operational performance and an opportunity for an annual incentive payment based on such performance results. The performance measurements for this Plan (other than any individual contribution performance measurements) will be based upon one or more pre-established financial or operational performance measurements, while any individual contribution measures shall be established in the discretion of the Committee. The Committee will (i) establish the performance objectives for each Plan participant including a target, a minimum threshold below which an incentive will not be paid, and a maximum incentive level and (ii) communicate them to each Plan participant through an individual award schedule. The Committee has determined that one or more of the following financial performance objectives shall be used: Enterprise and / or Business Unit Operating Income Enterprise and / or Business Unit Net Sales Growth Enterprise and / or Business Unit Working Capital In addition, the Committee may, at the time and in a manner similar to the financial and/or operational performance measurements, establish one or more individual contribution performance measurements for each Plan participant as a part of his or her underlying award. The Committee reserves the right to increase or reduce the total amount of any individual’s awards in its discretion. Performance measure achievement levels may be adjusted to include or exclude specific items of an unusual nature or non-operating or significant events not anticipated by the Committee when the performance measurements were established, as determined by the Committee in its sole discretion and as permitted by the Stock Plan. The Committee delegates to the CEO the authority to establish the incentive (Target) for employees other than officers subject to Section 16 of the Exchange Act. 5. Method of Payment. Individual participant incentive targets, expressed as a percentage of base salary or a flat dollar amount, are approved annually by the Committee. Actual incentive awards can range from 0% to 200% of a Plan participant’s incentive target, and shall be communicated to Plan participants through an individual award schedule. 2 US.120224666.01

The amount of each participant’s incentive compensation for the fiscal year shall be in direct proportion to the resulting financial or operational performance of the relevant measure expressed as a percentage (Performance Factor) against predetermined compensation targets for that participant. The results for the fiscal year will be used in identifying the Performance Factor to be used when calculating the participant’s incentive compensation. If individual contribution performance measures were established by the Committee, the Committee shall evaluate such contribution performance measures in determining the effect on the amount of the incentive compensation. Incentive awards are paid in cash. The cash payment, if any, shall be awarded as soon as practical after the final measurement of financial and/or operational performance for the fiscal year and overall incentive amounts have been approved by the Committee in October following fiscal year end, but in no event later than 2 ½ months after the end of the fiscal year. Any payment made under this Plan shall be subject to any employment and income tax withholding and other deductions as required by law. 6. Change in Control. In the event of a Corporate Transaction (as defined below), then the surviving or successor entity may continue, assume or replace awards outstanding under the Plan as of the date of the Corporate Transaction (with such adjustments as may be required or permitted by the Stock Plan), and such awards or replacements therefor shall remain outstanding and be governed by their respective terms. If and to the extent that outstanding awards under the Plan are not continued, assumed or replaced in connection with a Corporate Transaction (or in the case of a Change of Control that does not constitute a Corporate Transaction), then the awards under the Plan shall fully vest immediately prior to the effective time of the Corporate Transaction, meaning that each performance measure objectives is deemed to have been satisfied at the target level of performance and the vested portion of the award at that level of performance is proportionate to the portion of the performance period that has elapsed as of the effective time of the Corporate Transaction.
