SECTION 2

ADMINISTRATION OF THE PLAN

 

2.1 Composition of Committee. The Plan shall be administered by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors, and/or by the Board of Directors or another committee of the Board of Directors of the Company, as appointed from time to time by the Board of Directors (any such administrative body, the “Committee”).

Any action by any such Subcommittee within the scope of such delegation shall be deemed for all purposes to have been taken by the Committee. The Committee may designate the Secretary of the Company or other Company employees to assist the Committee in the administration of the Plan, and may grant authority to such persons to execute agreements evidencing Awards made under this Plan or other documents entered into under this Plan on behalf of the Committee or the Company.

 

2.2 Powers of the Committee. Subject to the express provisions of this Plan, the Committee shall be authorized and empowered to do all things necessary or desirable in connection with the administration of this Plan with respect to the Awards over which such Committee has authority, including, without limitation, the following:

 

(a)  to prescribe, amend and rescind rules and regulations relating to this Plan and to define terms not otherwise defined herein; provided that, unless the Committee shall specify otherwise, for purposes of this Plan (i) the term “fair market value” shall mean, as of any date, the average of the highest price and the lowest price per share at which the Shares (as defined in Section 3.1 hereof) are sold in the regular way on the New York Stock Exchange or, if no Shares traded on the New York Stock Exchange on the date in question, then for the next preceding date for which Shares traded on the New York Stock Exchange; and (ii) the term “Company” shall mean Massey Energy Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates, unless the context otherwise requires.

 

(b)  to determine which persons are Eligible Employees (as defined in Section 4 hereof), to which of such Eligible Employees, if any, Awards shall be granted hereunder, to make Awards under the Plan and to determine the terms of such Awards and the timing of any such Awards;

 

 (c)  to determine the number of Shares subject to Awards and the exercise or purchase price of such Shares;

 

(d)  to establish and verify the extent of satisfaction of any performance goals applicable to Awards;

 

(e)  to prescribe and amend the terms of the agreements or other documents evidencing Awards made under this Plan (which need not be identical);

 

(f)  to determine whether, and the extent to which, adjustments are required pursuant to Section 11 hereof;

 

(g)  to interpret and construe this Plan, any rules and regulations under the Plan and the terms and conditions of any Award granted hereunder, and to make exceptions to any such provisions in good faith and for the benefit of the Company; and

 

(h)  to make all other determinations deemed necessary or advisable for the administration of the Plan.

 

2.3 Determinations of the Committee. All decisions, determinations and interpretations by the Committee or the Board regarding the Plan shall be final and binding on all Eligible Employees and Participants, as defined in Section 4 hereof. The Committee or the Board, as applicable, shall consider such factors as it deems relevant, in its sole and absolute discretion, to making such decisions, determinations and interpretations including, without limitation, the recommendations or advice of any officer of the Company or Eligible Employee and such attorneys, consultants and accountants as it may select.

Such arrangements and benefits are sometimes referred to herein as “Awards.” The authorized types of arrangements and benefits for which Awards may be granted are defined as follows:

 

Stock Option Awards: A Stock Option is a right granted under Section 6 to purchase a number of Shares at such exercise price, at such times, and on such other terms and conditions as are specified in or determined pursuant to the document(s) evidencing the Award (the “Option Agreement”).

5.2 Grants of Awards. An Award may consist of one such arrangement or benefit or two or more of them in tandem or in the alternative.

 

 

SECTION 6

STOCK OPTION AWARDS

 

The Committee may grant an Option or provide for the grant of an Option, either from time-to-time in the discretion of the Committee or automatically upon the occurrence of specified events, including, without limitation, the achievement of performance goals, the satisfaction of an event or condition within the control of the recipient of the Award, within the control of others or not within any person’s control.

 

6.1 Option Agreement. Each Option Agreement shall contain provisions regarding (a) the number of Shares which may be issued upon exercise of the Option, (b) the purchase price of the Shares and the means of payment for the Shares, (c) the term of the Option, (d) such terms and conditions of exercisability as may be determined from time to time by the Committee, (e) restrictions on the transfer of the Option and forfeiture provisions, and (f) such further terms and conditions, in each case not inconsistent with the Plan as may be determined from time to time by the Committee. Option Agreements evidencing ISOs shall contain such terms and conditions as may be necessary to comply with the applicable provisions of Section 422 of the Code.

 

6.2 Option Price. The purchase price per Share of the Shares subject to each Option granted under the Plan shall equal or exceed 100% of the fair market value of such Stock on the date the Option is granted, except that (i) the Committee may specifically provide that the exercise price of an Option may be higher or lower in the case of an Option granted to employees of a company acquired by the Company in assumption and substitution of options held by such employees at the time such company is acquired, and (ii) in the event an Eligible Employee is required to pay or forego the receipt of any cash amount in consideration of receipt of an Option, the exercise price plus such cash amount shall equal or exceed 100% of the fair market value of such Stock on the date the Option is granted.

 

6.3 Option Term. The “Term” of each Option granted under the Plan, including any ISOs, shall not exceed ten (10) years from the date of its grant.

 

6.4 Option Vesting. Options granted under the Plan shall be exercisable at such time and in such installments during the period prior to the expiration of the Option’s Term as determined by the Committee in its sole discretion. The Committee shall have the right to make the timing of the ability to exercise any Option granted under the Plan subject to such performance requirements as deemed appropriate by the Committee. At any time after the grant of an Option the Committee may, in its sole discretion, reduce or eliminate any restrictions surrounding any Participant’s right to exercise all or part of the Option, except that no Option shall first become exercisable within one (1) year from its date of grant, other than upon death, disability, a Change of Control (as defined in Section 12.2 hereof) or upon satisfaction of such performance requirements as deemed appropriate by the Committee.

 

6.5 Option Exercise.

 

(a)  Partial Exercise. An exercisable Option may be exercised in whole or in part. However, an Option shall not be exercisable with respect to fractional Shares and the Committee may require, by the terms of the Option Agreement, a partial exercise to include a minimum number of Shares.

 

(b)  Manner of Exercise. All or a portion of an exercisable Option shall be deemed exercised upon delivery to the representative of the Company designated for such purpose by the Committee all of the following: (i) notice of exercise in such form as the Committee authorizes specifying the number of Shares to be purchased by the Participant, (ii) payment or provision for payment of the exercise price for such number of Shares, (iii) such representations and documents as the Committee, in its sole discretion, deems

Unless provided otherwise by the Committee, no Participant shall have any right as a shareholder with respect to any Shares purchased pursuant to any Option until the registration of Shares in the name of such person, and no adjustment shall be made for dividends (ordinary or extraordinary, whether in cash, securities or other property) or distributions or other rights for which the record date is prior to the date such Shares are so registered.

 

(c)  Payment of Exercise Price. To the extent authorized by the Committee, the exercise price of an Option may be paid in the form of one of more of the following, either through the terms of the Option Agreement or at the time of exercise of an Option: (i) cash or certified or cashiers’ check, (ii) shares of capital stock of the Company that have been held by the Participant for such period of time as the Committee may specify, (iii) other property deemed acceptable by the Committee, (iv) a reduction in the number of Shares or other property otherwise issuable pursuant to such Option, (v) a promissory note of or other commitment to pay by the Participant or of a third party, the terms and conditions of which shall be determined by the Committee, or (vi) any combination of (i) through (v).

Restricted Stock consists of an award of Shares, the grant, issuance, retention and/or vesting of which shall be subject to such performance conditions and to such further terms and conditions as the Committee deems appropriate.

 

7.1 Restricted Stock Award. Each Restricted Stock Award shall reflect, to the extent applicable (a) the number of Shares subject to such Award or a formula for determining such, (b) the time or times at which Shares shall be granted or issued and/or become retainable or vested, and the conditions or restrictions on such Shares, (c) the performance criteria and level of achievement versus these criteria which shall determine the number of Shares granted, issued, retainable and/or vested, (d) the period as to which performance shall be measured for determining achievement of performance, (e) forfeiture provisions, and (f) such further terms and conditions, in each case not inconsistent with the Plan as may be determined from time to time by the Committee.

The grant, issuance, retention and/or vesting of each Restricted Stock Award may be subject to such performance criteria and level of achievement versus these criteria as the Committee shall determine, which criteria may be based on financial performance, personal performance evaluations and/or completion of service by the Participant; provided, however, that no Restricted Stock Award shall first vest within one year from its date of grant, other than upon death, disability, a Change of Control (as defined in Section 12.2 hereof) or upon satisfaction of such performance requirements as deemed appropriate by the Committee. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the performance criteria for any Restricted Stock Award that is intended by the Committee to satisfy the requirements for “performance-based compensation” under Code Section 162(m) shall be a measure based on one or more Qualifying Performance Criteria (as defined in Section 10.2 hereof) selected by the Committee.

 

7.3 Timing and Form of Award. The Committee shall determine the timing of award of any Restricted Stock Award. The Committee may provide for or, subject to such terms and conditions as the Committee may specify,

 

 

may permit a Participant to elect for the award or vesting of any Restricted Stock to be deferred to a specified date or event.

SECTION 8

In establishing the provisions of Incentive Awards, the Committee may refer to categories of such Awards as parts of “Programs” or “Plans”, which names will not affect the applicability of this Plan. The maximum amount payable as an Incentive Award may be a multiple of the target amount payable, but the maximum amount payable pursuant to that portion of an Incentive Award granted under this Plan for any fiscal year to any Participant that is intended to satisfy the requirements for “performance based compensation” under Code Section 162(m) shall not exceed three million dollars ($3,000,000).

 

8.2 Performance Criteria. The Committee shall establish the performance criteria and level of achievement versus these criteria which shall determine the target and the minimum and maximum amount payable under an Incentive Award, which criteria may be based on financial performance and/or personal performance evaluations. The Committee may specify the percentage of the target Incentive Award that is intended to satisfy the requirements for “performance-based compensation” under Code Section 162(m). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the performance criteria for any portion of an Incentive Award that is intended by the Committee to satisfy the requirements for “performance-based compensation,’ under Code Section 162(m) shall be a measure based on one or more Qualifying Performance Criteria (as defined in Section 10.2 hereof) selected by the Committee and specified at the time required under Code Section 162(m).

 

8.3 Timing and Form of Payment. The Committee shall determine the timing of payment of any Incentive Award.

The Committee may specify the form of payment of Incentive Awards, which may be cash, shares or other property, or may provide for a Participant to have the option for his or her Incentive Award, or such portion thereof as the Committee may specify, to be paid in whole or in part in Shares or Stock Units.

 

 

 

8.4 Discretionary Adjustments. Notwithstanding satisfaction of any performance goals, the amount paid under an Incentive Award on account of either financial performance or personal performance evaluations may be reduced by the Committee on the basis of such further considerations as the Committee in its sole discretion shall determine.

 

SECTION 9

STOCK UNITS

 

9.1 Stock Units. A “Stock Unit” is a bookkeeping entry representing an amount equivalent to the fair market value of one share of Common Stock, also sometimes referred to as a “restricted unit” or “shadow stock”. Stock Units represent an unfunded and unsecured obligation of the Company, except as otherwise provided for by the Committee.

 

9.2 Stock Unit Awards. Each Stock Unit Award shall reflect, to the extent applicable (a) the number of Stock Units subject to such Award or a formula for determining such, (b) the time or times at which Stock Units shall be granted or issued and/or become retainable or vested, and the conditions or restrictions on such Stock Units, (c) the performance criteria and level of achievement versus these criteria which shall determine the number of Stock Units granted, issued, retainable and/or vested, (d) the period as to which performance shall be measured for determining achievement of performance, (e) forfeiture provisions, and (f) such further terms and conditions, in each case not inconsistent with the Plan as may be determined from time to time by the Committee.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the performance criteria for any Stock Unit that is intended by the Committee to satisfy the requirements for “performance-based compensation” under Code Section 162(m) shall be a measure based on one or more Qualifying Performance Criteria (as defined in Section 10.2 hereof) selected by the Committee and specified at the time the Stock Unit is granted.

 

9.4 Timing and Form of Award. The Committee shall determine the timing of award of any Stock Unit. The Committee may provide for or, subject to such terms and conditions as the Committee may specify, may permit a Participant to elect for the award or vesting of any Stock Unit to be deferred to a specified date or event. The Committee may provide for a Participant to have the option for his or her Stock Unit, or such portion thereof as the Committee may specify, to be granted in whole or in part in Shares.

 

9.5 Settlement of Stock Units. The Committee may provide for Stock Units to be settled in cash or Shares (at the election of the Company or the Participant, as specified by the Committee) and to be made at such other times as it determines appropriate or as it permits a Participant to choose. The amount of cash or Shares, or other settlement medium, to be so distributed may be increased by an interest factor or by dividend equivalents, as the case may be. which may be valued as if reinvested in Shares. Until a Stock Unit is settled, the number of Shares represented by a Stock Unit shall be subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 11.

 

 

9.6 Discretionary Adjustments. Notwithstanding satisfaction of any completion of service or performance goals, the number of Stock Units granted, issued, retainable and/or vested under a Stock Unit Award on account of either financial performance or personal performance evaluations may be reduced by the Committee on the basis of such further considerations as the Committee in its sole discretion shall determine.

 

SECTION 10

OTHER PROVISIONS APPLICABLE TO AWARDS

 

10.1 Transferability. Unless the agreement evidencing an Award (or an amendment thereto authorized by the Committee) expressly states that it is transferable as provided hereunder, no Award granted under the Plan, nor any interest in such Award, may be sold, assigned, conveyed, gifted, pledged, hypothecated or otherwise transferred in any manner, other than by will or the laws of descent and distribution, prior to the vesting or lapse of any and all restrictions applicable to any Shares issued under an Award. The Committee may in its sole discretion grant an Award or amend an outstanding Award to provide that the Award is transferable or assignable to a member or members of the Eligible Employee’s “immediate family,” as such term is defined under Exchange Act Rule 16a-l(e), or to a trust for the benefit solely of a member or members of the Eligible Employee’s immediate family, or to a partnership or other entity whose only owners are members of the Eligible Employee’s family, provided that following any such transfer or assignment the Award will remain subject to substantially the same terms applicable to the Award while held by the Eligible Employee, as modified as the Committee in its sole discretion shall determine appropriate, and the Participant shall execute an agreement agreeing to be bound by such terms.

10.3 Dividends. Unless otherwise provided by the Committee, no adjustment shall be made in Shares issuable under Awards on account of cash dividends which may be paid or other rights which may be issued to the holders of Shares prior to their issuance under any Award.

10.4 Agreements Evidencing Awards. The Committee shall, subject to applicable law, determine the date an Award is deemed to be granted, which for purposes of this Plan shall not be affected by the fact that an Award is contingent on subsequent stockholder approval of the Plan. The Committee or, except to the extent prohibited under applicable law, its delegate(s) may establish the terms of agreements evidencing Awards under this Plan and may, but need not, require as a condition to any such agreement’s effectiveness that such agreement be executed by the Participant and that such Participant agree to such further terms and conditions as specified in such agreement. The grant of an Award under this Plan shall not confer any rights upon the Participant holding such Award other than such terms, and subject to such conditions, as are specified in this Plan as being applicable to such type of Award (or to all Awards) or as are expressly set forth in the Agreement evidencing such Award.

 

10.5 Tandem Stock or Cash Rights. Either at the time an Award is granted or by subsequent action, the Committee may, but need not, provide that an Award shall contain as a term thereof, a right, either in tandem with the other rights under the Award or as an alternative thereto, of the Participant to receive, without payment to the Company, a number of Shares, cash or a combination thereof, the amount of which is determined by reference to the value of the Award; provided, however, that the number of such rights granted under any Award shall not exceed the per Eligible Employee share limitation for such Award as set forth in Section 3.2.

 

10.6 Financing. The Committee may in its discretion provide financing to a Participant in a principal amount sufficient to pay the purchase price of any Award and/or to pay the amount of taxes required by law to be withheld with respect to any Award. Any such loan shall be subject to all applicable legal requirements and restrictions pertinent thereto, including Regulation G promulgated by the Federal Reserve Board. The grant of an Award shall in no way obligate the Company or the Committee to provide any financing whatsoever in connection therewith.

 

SECTION 11

CHANGES IN CAPITAL STRUCTURE

reorganization, merger, consolidation, recapitalization, restructuring, reclassification, dividend (other than a regular, quarterly cash dividend) or other distribution, stock split, reverse stock split, spin-off or the like, or if substantially all of the property and assets of the Company are sold, then, unless the terms of such transaction shall provide otherwise, the Committee may make appropriate and proportionate adjustments in (i) the number and type of shares or other securities or cash or other property that may be acquired pursuant to Awards theretofore granted under this Plan and the exercise or settlement price of such Awards, provided, however, that any such adjustment shall be made in such a manner that will not affect the status of any Award intended to qualify as an ISO under Code Section 422 or as “performance based compensation” under Code Section 162(m), and (ii) the maximum number and type of shares or other securities that may be issued pursuant to such Awards thereafter granted under this Plan.

Any such elections are subject to such conditions or procedures as may be established by the Committee and may be subject to disapproval by the Committee.

 

SECTION 14

AMENDMENTS OR TERMINATION

 

The Board may amend, alter or discontinue the Plan or any agreement evidencing an Award made under the Plan, but no such amendment shall, without the approval of the shareholders of the Company:

 

(a)  materially increase the maximum number of shares of Common Stock for which Awards may be granted under the Plan;

SECTION 15

COMPLIANCE WITH OTHER LAWS AND REGULATIONS

 

The Plan, the grant and exercise of Awards thereunder, and the obligation of the Company to sell, issue or deliver Shares under such Awards, shall be subject to all applicable federal, state and foreign laws, rules and regulations and to such approvals by any governmental or regulatory agency as may be required. The Company shall not be required to register in a Participant’s name or deliver any Shares prior to the completion of any registration or qualification of such Shares under any federal, state or foreign law or any ruling or regulation of any government body which the Committee shall, in its sole discretion, determine to be necessary or advisable. This Plan is intended to constitute an unfunded arrangement for a select group of management or other key employees.

 

No Option shall be exercisable unless a registration statement with respect to the Option is effective or the Contrary has determined that such registration is unnecessary. Unless the Awards and Shares covered by this Plan have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Company has determined that such registration is unnecessary, each person receiving an Award and/or Shares pursuant to any Award may be required by the Company to give a representation in writing that such person is acquiring such Shares for his or her own account for investment and not with a view to, or for sale in connection with, the distribution of any party thereof.

 

 

SECTION 16

OPTION GRANTS BY SUBSIDIARIES

 

In the case of a grant of an Option to any Eligible Employee employed by a subsidiary or affiliate, such grant may, if the Committee so directs, be implemented by the Company issuing any subject Shares to the subsidiary or affiliate, for such lawful consideration as the Committee may determine, upon the condition or understanding that the subsidiary or affiliate will transfer the Shares to the optionholder in accordance with the terms of the Option specified by the Committee pursuant to the provisions of the Plan. Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, such Option may be issued by and in the name of the subsidiary or affiliate and shall be deemed granted on such date as the Committee shall determine.

 

SECTION 17

NO RIGHT TO COMPANY EMPLOYMENT

 

Nothing in this Plan or as a result of any Award granted pursuant to this Plan shall confer on any individual any right to continue in the employ of the Company or interfere in any way with the right of the Company to terminate an individual’s employment at any time. The Award agreements may contain such provisions as the Committee may approve with reference to the effect of approved leaves of absence.

 

SECTION 18

EFFECTIVENESS AND EXPIRATION OF PLAN

No Stock Option Award, Restricted Stock Award or Incentive Award shall be granted pursuant to the Plan more than ten (10) years after the original effective date of the Plan.

 

SECTION 19

NON-EXCLUSIVITY OF THE PLAN

 

Neither the adoption of the Plan by the Board nor the submission of the Plan to the shareholders of the Company for approval shall be construed as creating any limitations on the power of the Board or the Committee to adopt such other incentive arrangements as it or they may deem desirable, including without limitation, the granting of restricted stock or stock options otherwise than under the Plan, and such arrangements may be either generally applicable or applicable only in specific cases.

 

SECTION 20
