WHEREAS, Company and Executive desire to amend the Employment Agreement to conform Executive’s indemnification rights with Dynegy Inc.’s Certificate of Incorporation;

 

WHEREAS, the Board terminated the Dynegy Excise Tax Reimbursement Policy as of March 18, 2013; and

 

WHEREAS, the Employment Agreement allows Company and Executive to amend the Employment Agreement through written consent.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and promises contained herein and for good and valuable consideration, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, Company and Executive agree as follows:

 

1.              Section 5 is hereby amended by revising Section 5(c) to be and read as follows:

 

(c)  Incentive Compensation Plan.  The Executive shall be eligible to participate in the Dynegy Inc. Incentive Compensation Plan (the “Incentive Compensation Plan”) with a target Award of 100% of Base Salary.

 

2.              Section 5 is hereby amended by revising Section 5(j) to be and read as follows:

 

(j)            Indemnification; Directors’ and Officers’ Liability Insurance.  The Executive shall be entitled to defense and indemnification pursuant to Dynegy Inc.’s Certificate of Incorporation.  During the Employment Term and thereafter, the Company shall cover the Executive under its directors’ and officers’ liability insurance policy to the extent it covers its other officers and directors.

 

3.              Section 7(b) is hereby amended by revising Section 7(b) to be and read as follows:
