4. Place of Performance. During the Term, Executive’s primary office and principal workplace shall be the Corporate Office, except for necessary travel on the Company’s business. The Parties acknowledge and Executive agrees that Executive is expected to commute to the Corporate Office from his principal or secondary residence whether inside or outside of the metropolitan area or areas in which the Corporate Office is located.

5. Annual Base Salary. During the Term, Executive shall receive a base salary at a rate not less than $2,000,000 per annum (the “Annual Base Salary”), less standard deductions, paid in accordance with the Company’s general payroll practices for executives in effect from time to time (but no less frequently than monthly). The Annual Base Salary shall compensate Executive for any official position or directorship of a subsidiary or affiliate of the Company that Executive holds as a part of Executive’s employment responsibilities under this Agreement. No less frequently than annually during the Term, the Committee shall review the rate of Annual Base Salary payable to Executive, and may, in its discretion, increase the rate of Annual Base Salary payable hereunder; provided, however, that any increased rate shall thereafter be the rate of “Annual Base Salary” hereunder.

6. Bonus. Executive shall, to the extent earned based on the level of attainment of the applicable performance criteria, be paid an annual cash performance bonus (a “Bonus”) in respect of each calendar year that ends during the Term.

Executive’s Bonus for each such calendar year shall equal 300% of his Annual Base Salary in effect at the time such performance criteria are established if target-level performance for such year (as determined by the Committee) is attained (the “Target Bonus”), with greater or lesser amounts (including zero) paid for performance attainment above and below target-level performance attainment (such greater and lesser amounts to be determined by a formula established by the Committee for each year when it establishes the targets and performance criteria for such year); provided, that for calendar year 2021 (unless the term is extended), Executive shall be eligible to receive a pro-rata portion of the Bonus otherwise earned by Executive for such year equal to such Bonus multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of calendar days in such year that occurred during the Term and the denominator of which is 365. The amount earned in respect of any Bonus shall be determined by the Committee after the end of the calendar year for which such Bonus is granted and shall be paid to Executive during the calendar year immediately following such calendar year when annual bonuses are paid to other senior executives of the Company generally.

7. Benefits. Executive shall be entitled to receive such benefits and to participate in such employee group benefit plans, including life, health and disability insurance policies, and financial planning services, and other perquisites and plans as are generally provided by the Company to its other senior executives in accordance with the plans, practices and programs of
