The Company shall pay or cause to be paid to the Executive a cash severance amount equal to three times the sum of (i) the Executive’s annual base salary on the date of the Change in Control (or, if higher, the annual base salary in effect immediately prior to the giving of the Notice of Termination), and (ii) the highest of the actual bonuses paid or payable to the Executive under the Company’s annual incentive compensation plan in any of the three consecutive fiscal years prior to the year in which the Change in Control occurs (the “Bonus”). This cash severance amount shall be payable in a lump sum calculated without any discount.”
