Governance DocumentsCommittee Charters

2. AUTHORITY OF THE COMPENSATION COMMITTEE

a. The committee may, in its sole discretion, retain (or terminate) or obtain the advice of any compensation consultant, independent legal counsel or other adviser (any one of them, a “compensation adviser”), including to assist in the evaluation of chief executive officer and chair of the Board, if applicable, or other Senior Officer compensation. The committee shall be directly responsible for the appointment, compensation and oversight of the work of any such compensation adviser.

b. Except as noted in 2.c. below, the committee may select a compensation adviser only after taking into consideration all factors relevant to such adviser’s independence from management, including:

(i) The provision of other services to the Company by the employer of the compensation adviser;

(ii) The amount of fees received from the Company by the employer of the compensation adviser, as a percentage of the total revenue of the employer;

(iii) The policies and procedures of the employer of the compensation adviser that are designed to prevent conflicts of interest;

(iv) Any business or personal relationship of the compensation adviser with a member of the committee;

(v) Any stock of the Company owned by the compensation adviser; and

(vi) Any business or personal relationship of the compensation adviser (or the employer of the compensation adviser) with an executive officer of the Company.

c. The assessment described in 2.b. above need not be considered with respect to (i) in-house legal counsel or (ii) any compensation adviser whose role is limited to either consulting on any broad-based plan that does not discriminate (in scope, terms or operation) in favor of Senior Officers or directors of the Company and is available generally to all salaried employees; or providing information that either is not customized for the Company or is customized based on parameters that are not developed by the compensation adviser, and about which such adviser does not provide advice.

d. Nothing in this Charter requires the committee to implement or act consistently with the advice or recommendations of any compensation adviser or affects the ability or obligation of the committee to exercise its own judgment in fulfillment of its duties. Also, nothing in this Charter requires a compensation adviser to be independent, only that the committee consider the independence factors described in 2.b. above before selecting or receiving advice from a compensation adviser. The committee may select or receive advice from any compensation advisers it prefers, including ones that are not independent, after considering the independence factors described in 2.b. above.

e. The Company shall provide appropriate funding, as determined by the committee, for payment of reasonable compensation to compensation advisers.

f. The committee may request any other director, officer or employee of the Company or the Company's outside counsel to attend a meeting of the committee or to meet with any members of, or consultants to, the committee.

g. The committee may form and delegate authority to subcommittees and management when appropriate and legal.
