Notwithstanding the foregoing payment provisions, in the event that a participant's total Account balance does not exceed $10,000 on the date of the Participant's termination of employment with the Controlled Group, such Account shall automatically be paid to him in a single lump sum payment as soon as practicable following the later of (A) the date of his termination of employment with the Controlled Group or (B) the date on which all amounts allocable to the Participant's Account for the year of such termination have been credited to his Account. (e) WITHDRAWALS SUBJECT TO 10% PENALTY. (i) The provisions of this Subsection shall apply notwithstanding any other provision of the Plan to the contrary. (ii) A Participant who is an Employee may, at any time (and from time to time) elect in writing to receive a withdrawal from one or more of the following Sub-Accounts: (A) the Additional Excess 401(k) Sub-Account; or (B) the Additional Excess Matching Sub-Account. (iii) In addition to the amounts described in (ii) above, Participants who have previously elected to delay commencement of the payment of such Sub-Accounts and who ceased to be Employees of the Controlled Group may also elect in writing to receive a withdrawal from one or more of the following Sub-Accounts: (A) the Basic Excess 401(k) Sub-Account; and (B) the Basic Excess Matching Sub-Account. (iv) Withdrawals under this Subsection (e) shall be equal to value of the Sub-Account as of the Valuation Date preceding the payment date, less 10%, and shall be paid to the Participant in the form of a lump sum payment as soon as practicable after such withdrawal request is processed by the Company. Such 10% reduction shall be treated as a forfeiture hereunder and shall immediately be subtracted from the applicable Sub-Account, never to be restored. 10

(f) PAYMENT RESTRICTION. Notwithstanding any provision of the Plan to the contrary, the payment of all or any portion of the amounts payable hereunder will be deferred to the extent that any amount payable, when added to any other compensation received or to be received by the Participant in the same calendar year, would not be deductible by the Company by reason of Section 162(m) of the Code. The amount to be deferred will equal the amount that otherwise would not be deductible by the Company by reason of Section 162(m) of the Code, but in not event greater than the total amount otherwise hereunder. The deferred amount shall become payable on December 31 of the first succeeding calendar year in which such amount, when added to all other compensation received or to be received by the Participant in such calendar year, would not be non-deductible by the Company by reason of Section 162(m) of the Code. The Nominating Organization and Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company, in its sole and absolute discretion, shall have the authority to waive this payment restriction (in whole or in part) upon the written request of the Participant. SECTION 7.2. LIABILITY FOR PAYMENT/EXPENSES. Each Employer shall be liable for the payment of the Excess Retirement Benefits which are payable hereunder to its Employees. Expenses of administering the Plan shall be paid by the Employers, as directed by the Company.

Notwithstanding any provision of the Plan to the contrary, the payment of all or any portion of the amounts payable hereunder will be deferred to the extent that any amount payable, when added to any other compensation received or to be received by the Participant in the same calendar year, would not be deductible by the Company by reason of Section 162(m) of the Code. The amount to be deferred will equal the amount that otherwise would not be deductible by the Company by reason of Section 162(m) of the Code, but in not event greater than the total amount otherwise hereunder. The deferred amount shall become payable on December 31 of the first succeeding calendar year in which such amount, when added to all other compensation received or to be received by the Participant in such calendar year, would not be non-deductible by the Company by reason of Section 162(m) of the Code. The Nominating Organization and Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company, in its sole and absolute discretion, shall have the authority to waive this payment restriction (in whole or in part) upon the written request of the Participant. SECTION 7.2. LIABILITY FOR PAYMENT/EXPENSES. Each Employer shall be liable for the payment of the Excess Retirement Benefits which are payable hereunder to its Employees. Expenses of administering the Plan shall be paid by the Employers, as directed by the Company. ARTICLE VIII BENEFICIARIES SECTION 8.1. BENEFICIARY DESIGNATIONS. A designation of a Beneficiary hereunder may be made only by an instrument (in form acceptable to the Plan Administrator) signed by the Participant and filed with the Plan Administrator prior to the Participant's death. Separate Beneficiary designations may be made for each Benefit under the Plan. In the absence of such a designation and at any other time when there is no existing Beneficiary designated hereunder, the Beneficiary of a Participant for his Excess 401(k) Benefits, his Excess Matching Benefits and his Excess Profit Sharing Benefits shall be his beneficiary under the Profit Sharing Plan. A person designated by a Participant as his Beneficiary who or which ceases to exist shall not be entitled to any part of any payment thereafter to be made to the Participant's Beneficiary unless the Participant's designation specifically provided to the contrary. If two or more persons designated as a Participant's Beneficiary are in existence with respect to a single Sub-Account, the amount of any payment to the Beneficiary under this Plan shall be divided equally among such persons unless the Participant's designation specifically provides for a different allocation. SECTION 8.2. CHANGE IN BENEFICIARY. (a) Anything herein or in the Profit Sharing Plan to the contrary notwithstanding, a Participant may, at any time and from time to time, change a Beneficiary designation hereunder without the consent of any existing Beneficiary or any other person. A change in Beneficiary hereunder may be made regardless of whether such a change is also made under the Profit Sharing Plan. In other words, the Beneficiary hereunder need not be the same as under the Profit Sharing Plan. (b) Any change in Beneficiary shall be made by giving written notice thereof to the Company or Plan Administrator and any change shall be effective only if received prior to the death of the Participant. 11

SECTION 8.3. DISTRIBUTIONS TO BENEFICIARIES. (a) AMOUNT OF BENEFITS. Excess Retirement Benefits payable to a Participant's Beneficiary under this Plan shall be equal to the balance in the applicable Sub-Account of such Participant on the Valuation Date preceding the date of the distribution of the Sub-Account to the Beneficiary. (b) TIME OF PAYMENT. Excess Retirement Benefits payable to a Beneficiary under this Plan shall be paid as soon as practicable following the death of the Participant. (c) FORM OF PAYMENT. All Benefits payable to a Beneficiary hereunder shall be paid in the form of a lump sum payment.

SECTION 8.3. DISTRIBUTIONS TO BENEFICIARIES. (a) AMOUNT OF BENEFITS. Excess Retirement Benefits payable to a Participant's Beneficiary under this Plan shall be equal to the balance in the applicable Sub-Account of such Participant on the Valuation Date preceding the date of the distribution of the Sub-Account to the Beneficiary. (b) TIME OF PAYMENT. Excess Retirement Benefits payable to a Beneficiary under this Plan shall be paid as soon as practicable following the death of the Participant. (c) FORM OF PAYMENT. All Benefits payable to a Beneficiary hereunder shall be paid in the form of a lump sum payment. ARTICLE IX MISCELLANEOUS ' ------------SECTION 9.1. LIABILITY OF COMPANY. Nothing in this Plan shall constitute the creation of a trust or other fiduciary relationship between the Company and any Participant, Beneficiary or any other person. SECTION 9.2. LIMITATION ON RIGHTS OF PARTICIPANTS AND BENEFICIARIES - NO LIEN. (a) This Plan is designed to be an unfunded, nonqualified plan. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to create a trust or lien in favor of any Participant or Beneficiary on any assets of the Company. The Company shall have no obligation to purchase any assets that do not remain subject to the claims of the creditors of the Company for use in connection with the Plan. No Participant or Beneficiary or any other person shall have any preferred claim on, or any beneficial ownership interest in, any assets of the Company prior to the time that such assets are paid to the Participant or Beneficiary as provided herein. Each Participant and Beneficiary shall have the status of a general unsecured creditor of the Company. (b) Notwithstanding any provision of the Plan to the contrary, the Company shall not be required to make any payment hereunder to any Participant or Beneficiary if the Company is Insolvent at the time such payment is due to be made. SECTION 9.3. NO GUARANTEE OF EMPLOYMENT. Nothing in this Plan shall be construed as guaranteeing future employment to Participants. A Participant continues to be an Employee of the Company solely at the will of the Company subject to discharge at any time, with or without cause. SECTION 9.4. PAYMENT TO GUARDIAN. If a Benefit payable hereunder is payable to a minor, to a person declared incompetent or to a person incapable of handling the disposition of his property, the Plan Administrator may direct payment of such Benefit to the guardian, legal representative or person having the care and custody of such minor, incompetent or person. The Plan Administrator may require such proof of incompetency, minority, incapacity or guardianship as it may deem appropriate prior to distribution of the benefit. Such distribution shall completely discharge the Employers from all liability with respect to such Benefit. 12

SECTION 9.5. ASSIGNMENT. (a) Subject to Subsection (b), no right or interest under this Plan of any Participant or Beneficiary shall be assignable or transferable in any manner or be subject to alienation, anticipation, sale, pledge, encumbrance or other legal process or in any manner be liable for or subject to the debts or liabilities of the Participant or Beneficiary. (b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Plan Administrator shall honor a judgment, order or decree from a state domestic relations court which requires the payment of all or a part of a Participant's or Beneficiary's vested interest under this Plan to an "alternate payee" as defined in Code Section 414(p). SECTION 9.6. SEVERABILITY. If any provision of this Plan or the application thereof to any circumstance(s)

SECTION 9.5. ASSIGNMENT. (a) Subject to Subsection (b), no right or interest under this Plan of any Participant or Beneficiary shall be assignable or transferable in any manner or be subject to alienation, anticipation, sale, pledge, encumbrance or other legal process or in any manner be liable for or subject to the debts or liabilities of the Participant or Beneficiary. (b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Plan Administrator shall honor a judgment, order or decree from a state domestic relations court which requires the payment of all or a part of a Participant's or Beneficiary's vested interest under this Plan to an "alternate payee" as defined in Code Section 414(p). SECTION 9.6. SEVERABILITY. If any provision of this Plan or the application thereof to any circumstance(s) or person(s) is held to be invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remainder of the Plan and the application of such provision to other circumstances or persons shall not be affected thereby. ARTICLE X ADMINISTRATION OF PLAN SECTION 10.1. ADMINISTRATION. (a) IN GENERAL. The Plan shall be administered by the Plan Administrator. The Plan Administrator shall have discretion to interpret where necessary all provisions of the Plan (including, without limitation, by supplying omissions from, correcting deficiencies in, or resolving inconsistencies or ambiguities in, the language of the Plan), to make factual findings with respect to any issue arising under the Plan, to determine the rights and status under the Plan of Participants or other persons, to resolve questions (including factual questions) or disputes arising under the Plan and to make any determinations with respect to the benefits payable under the Plan and the persons entitled thereto as may be necessary for the purposes of the Plan. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Plan Administrator is hereby granted the authority (i) to determine whether a particular employee is a Participant, and (ii) to determine if a person is entitled to Benefits hereunder and, if so, the amount and duration of such Benefits. The Plan Administrator's determination of the rights of any person hereunder shall be final and binding on all persons, subject only to the provisions of Sections 10.3 and 10.4 hereof. (b) DELEGATION OF DUTIES. The Plan Administrator may delegate any of its administrative duties, including, without limitation, duties with respect to the processing, review, investigation, approval and payment of Benefits, to a named administrator or administrators. SECTION 10.2. REGULATIONS. The Plan Administrator shall promulgate any rules and regulations it deems necessary in order to carry out the purposes of the Plan or to interpret the provisions of the Plan; provided, however, that no rule, regulation or interpretation shall be contrary to the provisions of the Plan. The rules, regulations and interpretations made by the Plan Administrator shall, subject only to the provisions of Sections 10.3 and 10.4 hereof, be final and binding on all persons. SECTION 10.3. CLAIMS PROCEDURES. The Plan Administrator shall determine the rights of a person to any Benefits hereunder. Any person who believes that he has 13

not received the Benefits to which he is entitled under the Plan may file a claim in writing with the Plan Administrator. The Plan Administrator shall, no later than 90 days after the receipt of a claim (plus an additional period of 90 days if required for processing, provided that notice of the extension of time is given to the claimant within the first 90 day period), either allow or deny the claim in writing. If a claimant does not receive written notice of the Plan Administrator's decision on his claim within the above-mentioned period, the claim shall be deemed to have been denied in full. A denial of a claim by the Plan Administrator, wholly or partially, shall be written in a manner calculated to be understood by the claimant and shall include: (a) the specific reasons for the denial; (b) specific reference to pertinent Plan provisions on which the denial is based;

not received the Benefits to which he is entitled under the Plan may file a claim in writing with the Plan Administrator. The Plan Administrator shall, no later than 90 days after the receipt of a claim (plus an additional period of 90 days if required for processing, provided that notice of the extension of time is given to the claimant within the first 90 day period), either allow or deny the claim in writing. If a claimant does not receive written notice of the Plan Administrator's decision on his claim within the above-mentioned period, the claim shall be deemed to have been denied in full. A denial of a claim by the Plan Administrator, wholly or partially, shall be written in a manner calculated to be understood by the claimant and shall include: (a) the specific reasons for the denial; (b) specific reference to pertinent Plan provisions on which the denial is based; (c) a description of any additional material or information necessary for the claimant to perfect the claim and an explanation of why such material or information is necessary; and (d) an explanation of the claim review procedure. A claimant whose claim is denied (or his duly authorized representative) may within 60 days after receipt of denial of a claim file with the Plan Administrator a written request for a review of such claim. If the claimant does not file a request for review of his claim within such 60-day period, the claimant shall be deemed to have acquiesced in the original decision of the Plan Administrator on his claim. If such an appeal is so filed within such 60 day period, the Company (or its delegate) shall conduct a full and fair review of such claim. During such review, the claimant shall be given the opportunity to review documents that are pertinent to his claim and to submit issues and comments in writing. For this purpose, the Company (or its delegate) shall have the same power to interpret the Plan and make findings of fact thereunder as is given to the Plan Administrator under Section 10.1(a) above. The Company shall mail or deliver to the claimant a written decision on the matter based on the facts and the pertinent provisions of the Plan within 60 days after the receipt of the request for review (unless special circumstances require an extension of up to 60 additional days, in which case written notice of such extension shall be given to the claimant prior to the commencement of such extension). Such decision shall be written in a manner calculated to be understood by the claimant, shall state the specific reasons for the decision and the specific Plan provisions on which the decision was based and shall, to the extent permitted by law, be final and binding on all interested persons. If the decision on review is not furnished to the claimant within the abovementioned time period, the claim shall be deemed to have been denied on review. SECTION 10.4. REVOCABILITY OF PLAN ADMINISTRATOR/COMPANY ACTION. Any action taken by the Plan Administrator or the Company with respect to the rights or benefits under the Plan of any person shall be revocable by the Plan Administrator or the Company as to payments not yet made to such person, and acceptance of any Benefits under the Plan constitutes 14

acceptance of and agreement to the Plan Administrator's or the Company's making any appropriate adjustments in future payments to such person (or to recover from such person) any excess payment or underpayment previously made to him. SECTION 10.5. AMENDMENT. The Committee may at any time amend any or all of the provisions of this Plan, except that (a) no such amendment may adversely affect any Participant's vested Benefit as of the date of such amendment, and (b) no such amendment may suspend the crediting of earnings on the balance of a Participant's Account, until the entire balance of such Account has been distributed, in either case, without the prior written consent of the affected Participant. Any amendment shall be in the form of a written instrument executed by an officer of the Company on the order of the Committee. Subject to the foregoing provisions of this Section, such amendment shall become effective as of the date specified in such instrument or, if no such date is specified, on the date of its execution.

Any such termination shall be expressed in the form of a written instrument executed by an officer of the Company on the order of the Company. Subject to the foregoing provisions of this Section, such termination shall become effective as of the date specified in such instrument or, if no such date is specified, on the date of its execution. Written notice of any termination shall be given to the Participants as soon as practicable after the instrument is executed. (b) Notwithstanding anything in the Plan to the contrary, in the event of a termination of the Plan (or any portion thereof), the Company, in its sole and absolute discretion, shall have the right to change the time and form of distribution of Participants' Excess Retirement Benefits including requiring that all amounts credited to Participant's Account hereunder be immediately distributed in the form of lump sum payments.

Exhibit 10 (xlv) THE NORTH AMERICAN COAL CORPORATION 2001 INCENTIVE COMPENSATION PLAN

2001 INCENTIVE COMPENSATION PLAN SUMMARY The Incentive Compensation Plan (Plan) offers a highly attractive incentive compensation opportunity to senior managers when all performance objectives under their control or influence are achieved. This is accomplished through a structure containing the following elements: - Each participant is assigned an individual incentive target, stated as a percentage of their salary midpoint, that establishes the incentive compensation amount they will receive when performance objectives are met. - The individual target amount is allocated among the following performace components: - North American Coal (NAC) corporate performance. - Bellaire Corporation cash flow. - Business unit results. - Individual achievement. - Percentage weightings are assigned to each component, based on the participant's accountabilities and their impact on each component.

This Incentive Compensation Plan will allow management and the Board to establish, in advance, the performance expectations and related incentive compensation potential that NAC's executives can expect for the year. At year-end, the Plan focuses judgment of the management team's performance on predetermined objectives that should produce fairness in the determination of rewards.

2001 INCENTIVE COMPENSATION PLAN page 2 PLAN STRUCTURE INDIVIDUAL INCENTIVE TARGETS The primary focus of the proposed Plan is the individual incentive compensation target. Each participant is assigned a target, stated as a percentage of the mid-point of base salary, which will be paid when all relevant performance objectives are achieved. The Plan provides for payments above or below the target to reflect acceptable variances from performance objectives. PERFORMANCE GOALS Four sets of goals are proposed: INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK INCENTIVE AWARD RANGE Actual performance results attained probably will not match the established performance goals exactly. Therefore, the Plan is designed to provide incentive compensation payouts of up to 150 percent of the target award if actual results fall within a predetermined range of acceptable performance. The award range is defined as follows:
% OF TARGET ----------150% 100%

AWARD LEVEL ------------------Maximum Target

DESCRIPTION --------------------------------Highest level of incentive paid. Competitive incentive opportunity for achieving all-important goals. Incentive paid when results meet minimum acceptable standards. Performance does not merit incentive payment.

2001 INCENTIVE COMPENSATION PLAN page 3 COMPONENT WEIGHTINGS Participants' potential incentive awards will be allocated between performance components based on their individual impact on results. The allocations allow for awards to be earned based on the achievement of the performance objectives over which each executive has the most control. Weightings will be stated as a percentage and total 100 percent for each participant. The weightings will be established each year to reflect current organizational accountabilities and the relative importance of the various performance components. Our recommended weightings are as follows: INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK When there is more than one goal for a performance component, further percentage weightings may be assigned,

Weightings will be stated as a percentage and total 100 percent for each participant. The weightings will be established each year to reflect current organizational accountabilities and the relative importance of the various performance components. Our recommended weightings are as follows: INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK When there is more than one goal for a performance component, further percentage weightings may be assigned, within the overall weightings, to reflect the relative priority of each goal. For example, if the individual component has a 40 percent weighting and there are five individual goals, each individual goal might be assigned a priority weighting of 20 percent. PERFORMANCE RANGE A range of performance acceptable for incentive compensation payment will be established for each performance objective. For quantitative goals, the range may be set as a percentage of the objective. For goals that cannot be quantified, the range will be defined in narrative form. The following general definitions will apply. The percentage ranges indicated are only guidelines; specific percentage ranges or narrative descriptions should be determined for each goal based on the definitions.

This schedule is applied separately to the results of each established performance element to determine the incentive amount earned in accordance with assigned weightings. Performance that falls between the defined levels would result in proportionally adjusted payouts, which may be calculated mathematically or determined judgmentally. CORPORATE PERFORMANCE THRESHOLD No incentive compensation awards will be earned under the Plan in any year unless the threshold level of the corporate performance component is achieved. Once the corporate performance threshold is attained, each performance objective is separate and distinct. This means that partial awards can be earned for the attainment of one performance objective even if another is not sufficient to generate a payout. INDIVIDUAL ADJUSTMENT FACTOR Each individual award, as calculated above, may be adjusted upward or downward by as much as 10 percent of the total award, based on management's' perceptions of each individual's overall performance. PARTIAL AWARDS

2001 INCENTIVE COMPENSATION PLAN page 5 Executives who are hired or promoted during the year to positions eligible for participation in the Plan may be included in the Plan on a prorata basis. COMMITTEE DISCRETION It is the intent of the Plan that the total incentive compensation, as determined above, will be the final total corporate incentive compensation to be paid. However, the Committee, in its sole discretion, may increase or decrease, by up to 10 percent, the total incentive compensation or may approve an incentive compensation

However, the Committee, in its sole discretion, may increase or decrease, by up to 10 percent, the total incentive compensation or may approve an incentive compensation payment where normally there would be no payment, due to corporate performance which is below the criteria established for the year. 2001 PERFORMANCE TARGETS See Plan Summary.

SECTION 2.12. PAYMENTS AND COMPUTATIONS. (a) The Borrower shall make each payment hereunder and under the Notes, irrespective of any counterclaim or set-off, not later than 12:00 noon (New York City time) on the day when due to the Agent at the Agent's Account in same day funds.

Each determination by the Agent of an interest rate hereunder shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error. (d) Whenever any payment hereunder or under the Notes shall be stated to be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day, and such extension of time shall in such case be included in the computation of payment of interest or facility fee, as the case may be; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that, if such extension would cause payment of interest on or principal of Eurodollar Rate Advances to be made in the next following calendar month, such payment shall be made on the next preceding Business Day. (e) Unless the Agent shall have received notice from the Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Lenders hereunder that the Borrower will not make such payment in full, the Agent may assume that the Borrower has made such payment in full to the Agent on such date and the Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, cause to be distributed to each Lender on such due date an amount equal to the amount then due such Lender. If and to the extent the Borrower shall not have so made such payment in full to the Agent, each Lender shall repay to the Agent forthwith on demand such amount distributed to such Lender together with interest

submitted to the Borrower and the Agent by such Lender shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error. SECTION 2.11. ILLEGALITY. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if any Lender shall notify the Agent that the introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation of any law or regulation makes it unlawful, or any central bank or other governmental authority asserts that it is unlawful, for any Lender or its Eurodollar Lending Office to perform its obligations hereunder to make Eurodollar Rate Advances or to fund or maintain Eurodollar Rate Advances hereunder, (a) each Eurodollar Rate Advance will automatically, upon such demand, Convert into a Base Rate Advance and (b) the obligation of the Lenders to make Eurodollar Rate Advances or to Convert Advances into Eurodollar Rate Advances shall be suspended until the Agent shall notify the Borrower and the Lenders that the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that before making any such demand, each Lender agrees to use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to designate a different Eurodollar Lending Office if the making of such a designation would allow such Lender or its Eurodollar Lending Office to continue to perform its obligations to make Eurodollar Rate Advances or to continue to fund or maintain Eurodollar Rate Advances and would not, in the judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender. SECTION 2.12. PAYMENTS AND COMPUTATIONS. (a) The Borrower shall make each payment hereunder and under the Notes, irrespective of any counterclaim or set-off, not later than 12:00 noon (New York City time) on the day when due to the Agent at the Agent's Account in same day funds. The Agent will promptly thereafter cause to be distributed like funds relating to the payment of principal or interest or facility fees ratably (other than amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.10, 2.13 or 8.04(c)) to the Lenders for the account of their respective Applicable Lending Offices, and like funds relating to the payment of any other amount payable to any Lender to such Lender for the account of its Applicable Lending Office, in each case to be applied in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Upon its acceptance of an Assignment and Acceptance and recording of the information contained therein in the Register pursuant to Section 8.07(c), from and after the effective date specified in such Assignment and Acceptance, the Agent shall make all payments hereunder and under the Notes in respect of the interest assigned thereby to the Lender assignee thereunder, and the parties to such Assignment and Acceptance shall make all appropriate adjustments in such payments for periods prior to such effective date directly between themselves. (b) The Borrower hereby authorizes each Lender, if and to the extent payment owed to such Lender is not made when due hereunder or under the Notes held by such Lender, to charge from time to time against any or all of the Borrower's accounts with such Lender any amount so due. (c) All computations of interest based on the Base Rate shall be made by the Agent on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, all computations of interest based on the Eurodollar Rate or the Federal Funds Rate and of facility fees shall be made by the Agent on the basis of a year of 360 days, in each case for the actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which such interest or facility fees are payable. Each determination by the Agent of an interest rate hereunder shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error. (d) Whenever any payment hereunder or under the Notes shall be stated to be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day, and such extension of time shall in such case be included in the computation of payment of interest or facility fee, as the case may be; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that, if such extension would cause payment of interest on or principal of Eurodollar Rate Advances to be made in the next following calendar month, such payment shall be made on the next preceding Business Day. (e) Unless the Agent shall have received notice from the Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Lenders hereunder that the Borrower will not make such payment in full, the Agent may assume that the Borrower has made such payment in full to the Agent on such date and the Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, cause to be distributed to each Lender on such due date an amount equal to the amount then due such Lender. If and to the extent the Borrower shall not have so made such payment in full to the Agent, each Lender shall repay to the Agent forthwith on demand such amount distributed to such Lender together with interest 16

thereon, for each day from the date such amount is distributed to such Lender until the date such Lender repays such amount to the Agent, at the Federal Funds Rate. (f) If the Agent receives funds for application to the obligations of the Borrower hereunder under circumstances for which this Agreement does not specify the Advances or the Facility to which, or the manner in which, such funds are to applied, the Agent may, but shall not be obligated to, elect to distribute such funds to each Lender ratably in accordance with such Lender's proportionate share of the principal amount of all outstanding Advances, in repayment or prepayment of such of the outstanding Advances or other obligations owed to such Lender, and for application to such principal installments, as the Agent shall direct. SECTION 2.13. TAXES. (a) Any and all payments by the Borrower hereunder or under the Notes shall be made, in accordance with Section 2.12, free and clear of and without deduction for any and all present or future taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges or withholdings, and all liabilities with respect thereto, EXCLUDING, in the case of each Lender and the Agent, taxes imposed on its overall net income, and franchise taxes imposed on it in lieu of net income taxes, by the jurisdiction under the laws of which such Lender or the Agent (as the case may be) is organized or any political subdivision thereof and, in the case of each Lender, taxes imposed on its overall net income, and franchise taxes imposed on it in lieu of net income taxes, by the jurisdiction of such Lender's Applicable Lending Office or any political subdivision thereof (all such non-excluded taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges, withholdings and liabilities in respect of payments hereunder or under the Notes being hereinafter referred to as "TAXES"). If the Borrower shall be required by law to deduct any Taxes from or in respect of any sum payable hereunder or under any Note to any Lender or the Agent, (i) the sum payable shall be increased as may be necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.13) such Lender or the Agent (as the case may be) receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) the Borrower shall make such deductions and (iii) the Borrower shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant taxation authority or other authority in accordance with applicable law. (b) In addition, the Borrower shall pay any present or future stamp or documentary taxes or any other excise or property taxes, charges or similar levies that arise from any payment made hereunder or under the Notes or from the execution, delivery or registration of, performing under, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement or the Notes (hereinafter referred to as "OTHER TAXES"). (c) The Borrower shall indemnify each Lender and the Agent for and hold it harmless against the full amount of Taxes or Other Taxes (including, without limitation, taxes of any kind imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this Section 2.13) imposed on or paid by such Lender or the Agent (as the case may be) and any liability (including penalties, interest and expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto. This indemnification shall be made within 30 days from the date such Lender or the Agent (as the case may be) makes written demand therefor. (d) Within 30 days after the date of any payment of Taxes, the Borrower shall furnish to the Agent, at its address referred to in Section 8.02, the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing such payment. In the case of any payment hereunder or under the Notes by or on behalf of the Borrower through an account or branch outside the United States or by or on behalf of the Borrower by a payor that is not a United States person, if the Borrower determines that no Taxes are payable in respect thereof, the Borrower shall furnish, or shall cause such payor to furnish, to the Agent, at such address, an opinion of counsel acceptable to the Agent stating that such payment is exempt from Taxes. For purposes of this subsection (d) and subsection (e), the terms "UNITED STATES" and "UNITED STATES PERSON" shall have the meanings specified in Section 7701 of the Internal Revenue Code. (e) Each Lender organized under the laws of a jurisdiction outside the United States, on or prior to the date of its execution and delivery of this Agreement in the case of each Initial Lender and on the date of the Assumption Agreement or the Assignment and Acceptance pursuant to which it becomes a Lender in the case of each other Lender, and from time to time thereafter as requested in writing by the Borrower (but only so long as such Lender remains lawfully able to do so), shall provide each of the Agent and the Borrower with two original Internal Revenue Service forms W-8BEN or W-8ECI or (in the case of a Lender that has certified in writing to the Agent that it is not a "bank" as defined in Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Internal Revenue Code) form W-8BEN or such other form as the Borrower, in its discretion, believes is necessary under the Treasury Regulations (and, if such

thereon, for each day from the date such amount is distributed to such Lender until the date such Lender repays such amount to the Agent, at the Federal Funds Rate. (f) If the Agent receives funds for application to the obligations of the Borrower hereunder under circumstances for which this Agreement does not specify the Advances or the Facility to which, or the manner in which, such funds are to applied, the Agent may, but shall not be obligated to, elect to distribute such funds to each Lender ratably in accordance with such Lender's proportionate share of the principal amount of all outstanding Advances, in repayment or prepayment of such of the outstanding Advances or other obligations owed to such Lender, and for application to such principal installments, as the Agent shall direct. SECTION 2.13. TAXES. (a) Any and all payments by the Borrower hereunder or under the Notes shall be made, in accordance with Section 2.12, free and clear of and without deduction for any and all present or future taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges or withholdings, and all liabilities with respect thereto, EXCLUDING, in the case of each Lender and the Agent, taxes imposed on its overall net income, and franchise taxes imposed on it in lieu of net income taxes, by the jurisdiction under the laws of which such Lender or the Agent (as the case may be) is organized or any political subdivision thereof and, in the case of each Lender, taxes imposed on its overall net income, and franchise taxes imposed on it in lieu of net income taxes, by the jurisdiction of such Lender's Applicable Lending Office or any political subdivision thereof (all such non-excluded taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges, withholdings and liabilities in respect of payments hereunder or under the Notes being hereinafter referred to as "TAXES"). If the Borrower shall be required by law to deduct any Taxes from or in respect of any sum payable hereunder or under any Note to any Lender or the Agent, (i) the sum payable shall be increased as may be necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.13) such Lender or the Agent (as the case may be) receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) the Borrower shall make such deductions and (iii) the Borrower shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant taxation authority or other authority in accordance with applicable law. (b) In addition, the Borrower shall pay any present or future stamp or documentary taxes or any other excise or property taxes, charges or similar levies that arise from any payment made hereunder or under the Notes or from the execution, delivery or registration of, performing under, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement or the Notes (hereinafter referred to as "OTHER TAXES"). (c) The Borrower shall indemnify each Lender and the Agent for and hold it harmless against the full amount of Taxes or Other Taxes (including, without limitation, taxes of any kind imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this Section 2.13) imposed on or paid by such Lender or the Agent (as the case may be) and any liability (including penalties, interest and expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto. This indemnification shall be made within 30 days from the date such Lender or the Agent (as the case may be) makes written demand therefor. (d) Within 30 days after the date of any payment of Taxes, the Borrower shall furnish to the Agent, at its address referred to in Section 8.02, the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing such payment. In the case of any payment hereunder or under the Notes by or on behalf of the Borrower through an account or branch outside the United States or by or on behalf of the Borrower by a payor that is not a United States person, if the Borrower determines that no Taxes are payable in respect thereof, the Borrower shall furnish, or shall cause such payor to furnish, to the Agent, at such address, an opinion of counsel acceptable to the Agent stating that such payment is exempt from Taxes. For purposes of this subsection (d) and subsection (e), the terms "UNITED STATES" and "UNITED STATES PERSON" shall have the meanings specified in Section 7701 of the Internal Revenue Code. (e) Each Lender organized under the laws of a jurisdiction outside the United States, on or prior to the date of its execution and delivery of this Agreement in the case of each Initial Lender and on the date of the Assumption Agreement or the Assignment and Acceptance pursuant to which it becomes a Lender in the case of each other Lender, and from time to time thereafter as requested in writing by the Borrower (but only so long as such Lender remains lawfully able to do so), shall provide each of the Agent and the Borrower with two original Internal Revenue Service forms W-8BEN or W-8ECI or (in the case of a Lender that has certified in writing to the Agent that it is not a "bank" as defined in Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Internal Revenue Code) form W-8BEN or such other form as the Borrower, in its discretion, believes is necessary under the Treasury Regulations (and, if such

If the form provided by a Lender at the time such Lender first becomes a party to this Agreement indicates a United States interest withholding tax rate in excess of zero, withholding tax at such rate shall be considered excluded from Taxes unless and until such Lender provides the appropriate forms certifying that a lesser rate applies, whereupon withholding tax at such lesser rate only shall be considered excluded from Taxes for periods governed by such form; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that, if at the date of the Assignment and Acceptance pursuant to which a Lender assignee becomes a party to this Agreement, the Lender assignor was entitled to payments under subsection (a) in respect of United States withholding tax with respect to interest paid at such date, then, to such extent, the term Taxes shall include (in addition to withholding taxes that may be imposed in the future or other amounts otherwise includable in Taxes) United States withholding tax, if any, applicable with respect to the Lender assignee on such date but at a rate not in excess of the rate applicable to the Lender assignor as of such date. If any form or document referred to in this subsection (e) requires the disclosure of information, other than information necessary to compute the tax payable and information required on the date hereof by Internal Revenue Service form W-8BEN or W-8ECI or other applicable form (or the related certificate described above), that the Lender reasonably considers to be confidential, the Lender shall give notice thereof to the Borrower and shall not be obligated to include in such form or document such confidential information. (f) For any period with respect to which a Lender has failed to provide the Borrower with the appropriate form described in Section 2.13(e) (OTHER THAN if such failure is due to a change in law occurring subsequent to the date on which a form originally was required to be provided, or if such form otherwise is not required under subsection (e) above), such Lender shall not be entitled to indemnification under Section 2.13(a) or (c) with respect to Taxes imposed by the United States by reason of such failure; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that should a Lender become subject to Taxes because of its failure to deliver a form required hereunder, the Borrower shall take such steps as the Lender shall reasonably request to assist the Lender to recover such Taxes. (g) Any Lender claiming any additional amounts payable pursuant to this Section 2.13 agrees to use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to change the jurisdiction of its Eurodollar Lending Office if the making of such a change would avoid the need for, or reduce the amount of, any such additional amounts that may thereafter accrue and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender. SECTION 2.14. SHARING OF PAYMENTS, ETC. If any Lender shall obtain any payment (whether voluntary, involuntary, through the exercise of any right of set-off, or otherwise) on account of the Advances owing to it (other than pursuant to Section 2.10, 2.13 or 8.04(c)) in excess of its ratable share of payments on account of the Advances obtained by all the Lenders, such Lender shall forthwith purchase from the other Lenders such participations in the Advances owing to them as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender to share the excess payment ratably with each of them; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that if all or any portion of such excess payment is thereafter recovered from such purchasing Lender, such purchase from each Lender shall be rescinded and such Lender shall repay to the purchasing Lender the purchase price to the extent of such recovery together with an amount equal to such Lender's ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such Lender's required repayment to (ii) the total amount so recovered from the purchasing Lender) of any interest or other amount paid or payable by the purchasing Lender in respect of the total amount so recovered, PROVIDED FURTHER that, so long as the obligations of the Borrower under this Agreement and the Notes shall not have been accelerated, any excess payment received by any Appropriate Lender shall be shared on a pro rata basis only with other Appropriate Lenders. The Borrower agrees that any Lender so purchasing a participation from another Lender pursuant to this Section 2.14 may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all its rights of payment (including the right of set-off) with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were the direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such participation.

If the form provided by a Lender at the time such Lender first becomes a party to this Agreement indicates a United States interest withholding tax rate in excess of zero, withholding tax at such rate shall be considered excluded from Taxes unless and until such Lender provides the appropriate forms certifying that a lesser rate applies, whereupon withholding tax at such lesser rate only shall be considered excluded from Taxes for periods governed by such form; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that, if at the date of the Assignment and Acceptance pursuant to which a Lender assignee becomes a party to this Agreement, the Lender assignor was entitled to payments under subsection (a) in respect of United States withholding tax with respect to interest paid at such date, then, to such extent, the term Taxes shall include (in addition to withholding taxes that may be imposed in the future or other amounts otherwise includable in Taxes) United States withholding tax, if any, applicable with respect to the Lender assignee on such date but at a rate not in excess of the rate applicable to the Lender assignor as of such date.

(f) For any period with respect to which a Lender has failed to provide the Borrower with the appropriate form described in Section 2.13(e) (OTHER THAN if such failure is due to a change in law occurring subsequent to the date on which a form originally was required to be provided, or if such form otherwise is not required under subsection (e) above), such Lender shall not be entitled to indemnification under Section 2.13(a) or (c) with respect to Taxes imposed by the United States by reason of such failure; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that should a Lender become subject to Taxes because of its failure to deliver a form required hereunder, the Borrower shall take such steps as the Lender shall reasonably request to assist the Lender to recover such Taxes.

SECTION 2.14. SHARING OF PAYMENTS, ETC. If any Lender shall obtain any payment (whether voluntary, involuntary, through the exercise of any right of set-off, or otherwise) on account of the Advances owing to it (other than pursuant to Section 2.10, 2.13 or 8.04(c)) in excess of its ratable share of payments on account of the Advances obtained by all the Lenders, such Lender shall forthwith purchase from the other Lenders such participations in the Advances owing to them as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender to share the excess payment ratably with each of them; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that if all or any portion of such excess payment is thereafter recovered from such purchasing Lender, such purchase from each Lender shall be rescinded and such Lender shall repay to the purchasing Lender the purchase price to the extent of such recovery together with an amount equal to such Lender's ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such Lender's required repayment to (ii) the total amount so recovered from the purchasing Lender) of any interest or other amount paid or payable by the purchasing Lender in respect of the total amount so recovered, PROVIDED FURTHER that, so long as the obligations of the Borrower under this Agreement and the Notes shall not have been accelerated, any excess payment received by any Appropriate Lender shall be shared on a pro rata basis only with other Appropriate Lenders.

SECTION 7.04. LENDER CREDIT DECISION.

SECTION 8.05. RIGHT OF SET-OFF. Upon (i) the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default and (ii) the making of the request or the granting of the consent specified by Section 6.01 to authorize the Agent to declare the Notes due and payable pursuant to the provisions of Section 6.01, each Lender and each of its Affiliates is hereby authorized at any time and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) at any time held and other indebtedness at any time owing by such Lender or such Affiliate to or for the credit or the account of the Borrower against any and all of the obligations of the Borrower now or hereafter existing under this Agreement and the Note held by such Lender, whether or not such Lender shall have made any demand under this Agreement or such Note and although such obligations may be unmatured. Each Lender agrees promptly to notify the Borrower after any such set-off and application made by such Lender, PROVIDED that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application. The rights of each Lender and its Affiliates under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including, without limitation, other rights of set-off) that such Lender and its Affiliates may have. SECTION 8.06. BINDING EFFECT. This Agreement shall become effective (other than Section 2.01, which shall only become effective upon satisfaction of the conditions precedent set forth in Section 3.01) when it shall have been executed by the Borrower and the Agent and when the Agent shall have been notified by each Initial Lender that such Initial Lender has executed it and thereafter shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Borrower, the Agent and each Lender and their respective successors and assigns, except that the Borrower shall not have the right to assign its rights hereunder or any interest herein without the prior written consent of the Lenders. SECTION 8.07. ASSIGNMENTS AND PARTICIPATIONS. (a) Each Lender may with the consent of the Agent and, unless an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing at the time of such assignment, the Borrower (which consent, in each case, shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed) and, if demanded by the Borrower (following (x) a demand by such Lender pursuant to Section 2.10 or 2.13, (y) a default by such Lender in the performance of its obligations hereunder or (z) such Lender's refusal to approve any amendment or waiver to this Agreement requested by the Borrower) upon at least five Business Days' notice to such Lender and the Agent, will assign to one or more Persons all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including, without limitation, all or a portion of its Commitment, the Advances owing to it and the Note or Notes held by it); PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that (i) each such assignment shall be of a constant, and not a varying, percentage of all rights and obligations under and in respect of one or more Facilities, (ii) except in the case of an assignment to a Person that, immediately prior to such assignment, was a Lender or an assignment of all of a Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement, (x) the amount of the Commitment of the assigning Lender being assigned pursuant to each such assignment (determined as of the date of the Assignment and Acceptance with respect to such assignment) shall in no event be less than $5,000,000 or an integral multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof under each Facility for which a Commitment is being assigned and (y) no assignment which would result in any Lender holding less than $5,000,000 under any Facility shall be permitted, (iii) each such assignment shall be to an Eligible Assignee, (iv) each such assignment made as a result of a demand by the Borrower pursuant to this Section 8.07(a) shall be arranged by the Borrower after consultation with the Agent and shall be either an assignment of all of the rights and obligations of the assigning Lender under this Agreement or an assignment of a portion of such rights and obligations made concurrently with another such assignment or other such assignments that together cover all of the rights and obligations of the assigning Lender under this Agreement, (v) no Lender shall be obligated to make any such assignment as a result of a demand by the Borrower pursuant to this Section 8.07(a) unless and until such Lender shall have received one or more payments from either the Borrower or one or more Eligible Assignees in an aggregate amount at least equal to the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Advances owing to such Lender, together with accrued interest thereon to the date of payment of such principal amount and all other amounts payable to such Lender under this Agreement, and (vi) the parties to each such assignment shall execute and deliver to the Agent, for its acceptance and recording in the Register, an Assignment and Acceptance, together with any Note subject to such assignment

and a processing and recordation fee of $3,500 payable by the parties to each such 35

assignment, PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that in the case of each assignment made as a result of a demand by the Borrower, such recordation fee shall be payable by the Borrower except that no such recordation fee shall be payable in the case of an assignment made at the request of the Borrower to an Eligible Assignee that is an existing Lender, and (vii) any Lender may, without the approval of the Borrower and the Agent, assign all or a portion of its rights to any of its Affiliates.

Such new Note or Notes shall be in an aggregate principal amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of such surrendered Note or Notes, shall be dated the effective date of such Assignment and Acceptance and shall otherwise be in substantially the form of Exhibit A-1 or A-2 hereto, as the case may be. (d) The Agent, acting for this purpose (but only for this purpose) as the agent of the Borrower, shall maintain at its address referred to in Section 8.02 a copy of each Assignment and Acceptance delivered to and accepted by it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders and the Commitment of, and principal amount of the Advances owing to, each Lender from time to time (the "REGISTER"). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error, and the Borrower, the Agent and

assignment, PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that in the case of each assignment made as a result of a demand by the Borrower, such recordation fee shall be payable by the Borrower except that no such recordation fee shall be payable in the case of an assignment made at the request of the Borrower to an Eligible Assignee that is an existing Lender, and (vii) any Lender may, without the approval of the Borrower and the Agent, assign all or a portion of its rights to any of its Affiliates. Upon such execution, delivery, acceptance and recording, from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Acceptance, (x) the assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned to it pursuant to such Assignment and Acceptance, have the rights and obligations of a Lender hereunder and (y) the Lender assignor thereunder shall, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned by it pursuant to such Assignment and Acceptance, relinquish its rights (other than its rights under Section 2.10, 2.13 and 8.04 to the extent any claim thereunder relates to an event arising prior such assignment) and be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Acceptance covering all or the remaining portion of an assigning Lender's rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto).

Such new Note or Notes shall be in an aggregate principal amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of such surrendered Note or Notes, shall be dated the effective date of such Assignment and Acceptance and shall otherwise be in substantially the form of Exhibit A-1 or A-2 hereto, as the case may be.

The entries in the Register shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error, and the Borrower, the Agent and the Lenders shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower or any Lender at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.

This opinion is delivered to you pursuant to Section 3.01(h)(v)(A) of the Credit Agreement. Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined herein have the meanings assigned to such terms in the Credit Agreement. The Uniform Commercial Code, as amended and in effect in the State of New York, is referred to herein as the "NY UCC." With your permission, all assumptions and statements of reliance herein have been made without any independent investigation or verification on our part except to the extent otherwise expressly stated, and we express no opinion with respect to the subject matter or accuracy of the assumptions or items upon which we have relied. In connection with the opinions expressed herein, we have examined such documents, records and matters of law as we have deemed necessary for the purposes of this opinion. We have examined, among other documents, the following: An executed copy of the Credit Agreement, signed by the Company and by the Agent and certain of the Lenders; An executed copy of each of the Notes; and The Officer's Certificate of the Company delivered to us in connection with this opinion, a copy of which is attached hereto as Annex A (the "Officer's Certificate"). In all such examinations, we have assumed, without independent investigation, the legal capacity of all natural persons executing documents, the genuineness of all signatures, the authenticity of original and certified documents and the conformity to original or certified copies of all copies submitted to us as conformed or reproduction copies. As to various questions of fact relevant to the opinions expressed herein, we have relied upon, and assume the accuracy of, representations and warranties contained in the Credit Documents and certificates and oral or written statements and other information of or from representatives of the Company and others and assume compliance on the part of all parties to the Credit Documents with their covenants and agreements contained therein. As to the factual matters set forth therein, we have relied solely upon certificates of public officials. With respect to the opinions expressed in paragraph (a) below, our opinions are limited (x) to our actual knowledge, if any, of the

Company's specially regulated business activities and properties based solely upon an officer's certificate in respect of such matters and without any independent investigation or verification on our part and (y) to our review of only those laws and regulations that, in our experience, are normally applicable to transactions of the type contemplated by the Credit Documents.

Company's specially regulated business activities and properties based solely upon an officer's certificate in respect of such matters and without any independent investigation or verification on our part and (y) to our review of only those laws and regulations that, in our experience, are normally applicable to transactions of the type contemplated by the Credit Documents. To the extent it may be relevant to the opinions expressed herein, we have assumed, without independent investigation, that the parties to the Credit Documents other than the Company have the power to enter into and perform such documents and to consummate the transactions contemplated thereby and that such documents have been duly authorized, executed and delivered by, and constitute legal, valid and binding obligations of, such parties. Based upon the foregoing, and subject to the limitations, qualifications and assumptions set forth herein, we are of the opinion that: The execution and delivery to the Agent and the Lenders by the Company of the Credit Documents and the performance by the Company of its obligations thereunder, (i) do not require under present law any filing or registration by the Company with, or approval or consent to the Company of, any governmental agency or authority of the State of New York or of the United States of America that has not been made or obtained except those required in the ordinary course of business in connection with the performance by the Company of its obligations under certain covenants contained in the Credit Documents, and (ii) do not violate any present law, or present regulation of any governmental agency or authority, of the State of New York or the United States of America known by us to be applicable to the Company or its property. The Credit Agreement constitutes, and each Note, upon delivery thereof and the making of the applicable initial Advances evidenced thereby, will constitute a valid and binding obligation of the Company enforceable in accordance with its respective terms. Assuming that the Company will comply with the provisions of the Credit Agreement relating to the use of proceeds, the borrowings by the Company under the Credit Agreement and the application of the proceeds thereof as provided in the Credit Agreement will not violate Regulation T, U or X of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. The opinions set forth above are subject to the following qualifications: Our opinions above as to enforceability are subject to (i) applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, fraudulent transfer, voidable preference, moratorium or similar laws, and related judicial doctrines, from time to time in effect affecting creditors' rights and remedies generally and (ii) general principles of equity (including, without limitation, standards of materiality, good faith, fair dealing and reasonableness, equitable defenses and limits on the availability of equitable remedies), whether such principles are considered in a proceeding at law or in equity. In rendering this opinion, we have relied, with your permission, upon the opinion of Thomas A. Koza, Esq., the Vice President - Law and Administration of the Company, a copy of which has been furnished to you. We express no opinion as to the enforceability of any provision in the Credit Documents: relating to indemnification, contribution or exculpation in connection with violations of any statutory duties or public policy, or in connection with reckless or unlawful acts of the indemnified or exculpated party or the party receiving contribution; providing that any person or entity purchasing a participation from a Lender or other person or entity pursuant thereto may exercise set-off or similar rights with respect to such participation; relating to forum selection to the extent that the enforceability of any such provision is to be determined by any court other than a court of the State of New York; 2

relating to choice of governing law to the extent that the enforceability of any such provision is to be determined by any court other than a court of the State of New York; or specifying that provisions thereof may be waived only in writing, to the extent that an oral agreement or an implied agreement by trade practice or course of conduct has been created that modifies any provision of such Credit Documents. Our opinions as to enforceability are subject to the effect of generally applicable rules of law that: may, where less than all of a contract may be unenforceable, limit the enforceability of the balance of the contract to circumstances in which the unenforceable portion is not an essential part of the agreed exchange; and govern and afford judicial discretion regarding the determination of damages and entitlement to attorneys' fees and other costs. We express no opinion as to the enforceability of any purported waiver, release, variation, disclaimer, consent or other agreement to similar effect (all of the foregoing, collectively, a "Waiver") by the Company under any of the Credit Documents to the extent that such a Waiver applies to a right, claim, duty, defense or ground for discharge otherwise existing or occurring as a matter of law (including judicial decisions), except to the extent that such a Waiver is effective under and is not prohibited by or void or invalid under applicable law (including judicial decisions). For purposes of the opinions set forth in paragraph (b) above, we have assumed that (i) the Company is a corporation validly existing in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware, has all requisite power and authority, and, other than as specifically stated in the opinion set forth in paragraph (a) above, has obtained all requisite corporate, shareholder, third party and governmental authorizations, consents and approvals, and made all requisite filings and registrations, necessary to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under the Credit Documents, and, other than as specifically stated in the opinion set forth in paragraph (a) above, that such execution, delivery and performance will not violate or conflict under any law, rule, regulation, order, decree, judgment, instrument or agreement binding upon or applicable to it or its properties, and (ii) the Credit Documents have been duly executed and delivered by the Company. For purposes of the opinion set forth in paragraph (c) above, we have assumed that (i) neither the Agent nor any of the Lenders has or will have the benefit of any agreement or arrangement (excluding the Credit Documents) pursuant to which any extensions of credit are directly or indirectly secured by Margin Stock, (ii) neither the Agent nor any of the Lenders nor any of their respective affiliates has extended or will extend any other credit to the Company directly or indirectly secured by Margin Stock and (iii) neither the Agent nor any of the Lenders has relied or will rely upon any Margin Stock as collateral in extending or maintaining any Advances pursuant to the Credit Agreement. The opinions expressed herein are limited to the federal laws of the United States of America and the laws of the State of New York and, to the extent relevant to the opinions expressed in paragraph (a) above, the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, as currently in effect. We express no opinion as to the compliance or noncompliance, or the effect of the compliance or noncompliance, of each of the addressees or any other person or entity with any state or federal laws or regulations applicable to each of them by reason of their status as or affiliation with a federally insured depository institution. Our opinions are limited to those expressly set forth herein, and we express no opinions by implication.

The objective of the Plan is to provide an opportunity to earn annual incentive compensation to those employees whose performance has a significant impact on the Company's short-term and long-term profitability.

Exhibit 10(lxiii) ANNUAL INCENTIVE COMPENSATION PLAN 2001 GENERAL NACCO Materials Handling Group, Inc., (the "Company") has established an Annual Incentive Compensation Plan ("Plan") as part of a competitive compensation program for the officers and key management employees of the Company and its Subsidiaries. PLAN OBJECTIVE The Company desires to attract and retain talented employees to enable the Company to meet its financial and business objectives. The objective of the Plan is to provide an opportunity to earn annual incentive compensation to those employees whose performance has a significant impact on the Company's short-term and long-term profitability. ADMINISTRATION AND PARTICIPATION The Plan is administered by the Nominating, Organization and Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company (the "Committee"). The Committee: a. May amend, modify or discontinue the Plan. b. Will approve participation in the Plan. Generally, participants will include all employees in NACCO Materials Handling Group salary grades 22 and above. However, the Committee may select any employee who has contributed significantly to the Company's profitability to participate in the Plan and receive an annual incentive compensation award. Subject to paragraphs (g) and (h), below, no employee of NACCO Materials Handling Group shall be eligible to be a participant in the Plan, and no participant in the Plan shall be eligible to receive an award, unless such individual is employed for at least 90 calendar days during the year.

c. Will determine the annual performance criteria which generate the incentive compensation pool. d. Will determine the total amount of both the target and actual annual incentive compensation pool. e. Will approve individual incentive compensation awards to officers and employees in NACCO Materials Handling Group above salary grade 29. f. May delegate to the Chief Executive Officer of the Company the approval of incentive compensation awards to NACCO Materials Handling Group employees in salary grade 29 and below. g. May consider at the end of each year the award of a discretionary bonus amount to non-participants as an addition to the regular incentive compensation pool on a special one-time basis to motivate individuals not eligible to participate in the Plan. h. May approve a pro-rate incentive compensation award for participants in the Plan whose employment is terminated (1) due to death, disability, retirement or facility closure, such award to be determined pursuant to the provisions of subparagraphs (e) and (f) above, or (2) under other circumstances at the recommendation of the Chief Executive Officer of the Company. DETERMINATION OF CORPORATE INCENTIVE COMPENSATION POOL Each participant in the Plan will have an individual target incentive compensation percentage which is determined by the participant's salary grade. This percentage is multiplied by the mid-point of the participant's salary grade to

Will approve individual incentive compensation awards to officers and employees in NACCO Materials Handling Group above salary grade 29. f. May delegate to the Chief Executive Officer of the Company the approval of incentive compensation awards to NACCO Materials Handling Group employees in salary grade 29 and below. g. May consider at the end of each year the award of a discretionary bonus amount to non-participants as an addition to the regular incentive compensation pool on a special one-time basis to motivate individuals not eligible to participate in the Plan. h. May approve a pro-rate incentive compensation award for participants in the Plan whose employment is terminated (1) due to death, disability, retirement or facility closure, such award to be determined pursuant to the provisions of subparagraphs (e) and (f) above, or (2) under other circumstances at the recommendation of the Chief Executive Officer of the Company. DETERMINATION OF CORPORATE INCENTIVE COMPENSATION POOL Each participant in the Plan will have an individual target incentive compensation percentage which is determined by the participant's salary grade. This percentage is multiplied by the mid-point of the participant's salary grade to determine his individual target incentive compensation award. The total of the target incentive compensation awards of all participants equals the target corporate incentive compensation pool ("Target Pool"). The Target Pool is approved each year by the Committee.

The actual corporate incentive compensation pool ("Actual Pool") is determined at the end of each year based on the Company's actual performance against specific criteria established in the beginning of the year by the Committee. The Target Pool is adjusted upwards or downwards by corporate performance adjustment factors to determine the Actual Pool. In no event will the Actual Pool exceed 150% of the Target Pool, except to the extent that the Committee elects to increase the Actual Pool by up to 110%, as described below. The Target and Actual Pools may consist of the sum of two or more subpools, provided the subpools have individual objectives. It is the intent of the Plan that the Actual Pool, as determined above, will be the final total corporate incentive compensation pool. However, the Committee, in its sole discretion, may increase or decrease by up to 10% the Actual Pool or may approve an incentive compensation pool where there would normally be no pool due to Company performance which is below the criteria established for the year. The Actual and Target Pools exclude the Marketing Incentive Plan for regional parts, service, sales and national account managers. However, total compensation or employees covered by the Marketing Incentive Plan will be based on competitive levels. DETERMINATION OF INDIVIDUAL INCENTIVE COMPENSATION AWARDS Salary grades and the corresponding target incentive percentages for each participant in the Plan will be established at the beginning of each year and approved by the Committee. Individual target incentive compensation will then be adjusted by the appropriate pool or subpool factor. Such adjusted individual incentive compensation will then be further modified based on the team performance to which an individual belongs compared to the team goals for the year, and may be further modified based on a Participant's performance as compared to their individual goals for the year.

All Book Value Units granted pursuant to an Award hereunder shall be immediately 100% vested as of the Grant Date. (b) PAYMENT RESTRICTIONS. Each Award shall provide that the Book Value Units granted therein shall be subject to a payment restriction in the manner and to the extent prescribed by the Committee for a period of five years from the Grant Date, or such other shorter or longer period as may be determined by the Committee from time to time. Notwithstanding the foregoing, such payment restrictions shall automatically lapse upon a termination of employment by reason of death, permanent disability or Retirement. In addition, in the case of other special circumstances of a Participant who holds Award Units as to which the payment restrictions have not lapsed, or in case of a termination of the Plan pursuant to Section 8, the Committee may, in its sole discretion, accelerate the time at which such payment restrictions will lapse. (c) PAYMENT DATE/VALUE. Subject to Subsection 6(e) hereof, and unless a Participant makes a deferral election under Subsection (d) of this Section, as soon as practicable following the lapse of a payment restriction applicable to an Award pursuant to Section 6(b), the employer or former employer of 5

the Participant shall deliver to the Participant (or, if applicable, his Beneficiary), a check in full payment of the Book Value Units granted pursuant to such Award. For participants who terminated employment (for reasons other than death, permanent disability or Retirement), the value of such Book Value Units shall be based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding the date of termination. For Participants who terminated employment due to death, permanent disability or Retirement, the value of such Book Value Units shall be based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding the date on which the payment restriction lapses. There shall be deducted from each payment under the Plan the amount of any tax required by any governmental authority to be withheld and paid over to such governmental authority for the account of the person entitled to such payment. (d) DEFERRAL OPTION. Prior to the date described in Subsection (c), to the extent determined by the Committee in its sole and absolute discretion (and subject to the rules and procedures specified in the Guidelines), a Participant may make an irrevocable election to defer receipt of 100% of the Award granted to him for a particular Award Term for a period not to exceed ten (10) years from the Grant Date of such Award. A separate deferral election may be made with respect to each Award granted under the Plan. The Awards which are subject to such a deferral election shall continue to be subject to the terms and conditions of this Plan and shall continue to be valued in accordance with the terms of the Plan until the date of payment (or further deferral, as described in the following sentence). In addition, a Participant who has made an irrevocable election to defer the receipt of an Award until exactly ten (10) years from the Grant Date of such Award shall be permitted (subject to the Committee's sole and absolute discretion and the rules and procedures contained in the Guidelines) to make another irrevocable election to further defer the receipt of such deferred Award under and

the Participant shall deliver to the Participant (or, if applicable, his Beneficiary), a check in full payment of the Book Value Units granted pursuant to such Award. For participants who terminated employment (for reasons other than death, permanent disability or Retirement), the value of such Book Value Units shall be based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding the date of termination. For Participants who terminated employment due to death, permanent disability or Retirement, the value of such Book Value Units shall be based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding the date on which the payment restriction lapses. There shall be deducted from each payment under the Plan the amount of any tax required by any governmental authority to be withheld and paid over to such governmental authority for the account of the person entitled to such payment. (d) DEFERRAL OPTION. Prior to the date described in Subsection (c), to the extent determined by the Committee in its sole and absolute discretion (and subject to the rules and procedures specified in the Guidelines), a Participant may make an irrevocable election to defer receipt of 100% of the Award granted to him for a particular Award Term for a period not to exceed ten (10) years from the Grant Date of such Award. A separate deferral election may be made with respect to each Award granted under the Plan. The Awards which are subject to such a deferral election shall continue to be subject to the terms and conditions of this Plan and shall continue to be valued in accordance with the terms of the Plan until the date of payment (or further deferral, as described in the following sentence). In addition, a Participant who has made an irrevocable election to defer the receipt of an Award until exactly ten (10) years from the Grant Date of such Award shall be permitted (subject to the Committee's sole and absolute discretion and the rules and procedures contained in the Guidelines) to make another irrevocable election to further defer the receipt of such deferred Award under and into the NACCO Materials Handling Group, Inc. Unfunded Benefit Plan (the "Unfunded Plan"). Deferred Awards payable to an active employee under this Plan shall be paid to the Participant as soon as practicable following the payment date previously elected by the Participant and shall be based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding such payment date. Deferred Awards which are further deferred into the Unfunded Plan shall be credited to the Unfunded Plan as soon as practicable following the 10th anniversary of the Grant Date of such Award and shall be based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding such anniversary date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any deferral election hereunder shall automatically terminate (and shall be of no further effect) upon a Participant's termination of employment with the Company and the Subsidiaries for any reason (including death or disability) and payment of all such deferred Awards shall be made as soon as 6

practicable following the date of the Participant's termination of employment, based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding such termination date; provided, however, that any Awards which are subject to a deferral election at the time of a Participant's Retirement shall automatically be deferred under and into the Unfunded Plan as of the date of the Participant's Retirement, with the value of the Book Value Units being based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding such Retirement date if (and only if) the Participant has a currently-effective payment election relating to Awards under the Unfunded Plan and is then eligible to participate in the Unfunded Plan. (e) CODE SECTION 162(m) PAYMENT RESTRICTION. Notwithstanding any provision of the Plan to the contrary, payment of all or any portion of an Award will be deferred to the extent that the amount of such Award, when added to any other compensation received or to be received by a Participant who is, or is determined by the Committee to be likely to become, a "covered employee" (under Section 162(m) of the Code), would not be deductible by the Company or a Subsidiary by reason of Section 162(m) of the Code. The amount to be deferred will equal the amount that otherwise would not be deductible by the Company or the Subsidiary by reason of Section 162(m) of the Code, but in no event greater than the total amount payable hereunder. The deferred amount shall become payable on December 31 of the first succeeding calendar year in which such amount, when added to all other compensation received or to be received by the Participant in such calendar year, would not be non-deductible by the Company or a Subsidiary by reason of Section 162(m) of the Code. The Committee, in its sole and absolute discretion, shall have the authority to waive this payment restriction (in whole or in part) upon the written request of a Participant. 7. ASSIGNABILITY

practicable following the date of the Participant's termination of employment, based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding such termination date; provided, however, that any Awards which are subject to a deferral election at the time of a Participant's Retirement shall automatically be deferred under and into the Unfunded Plan as of the date of the Participant's Retirement, with the value of the Book Value Units being based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding such Retirement date if (and only if) the Participant has a currently-effective payment election relating to Awards under the Unfunded Plan and is then eligible to participate in the Unfunded Plan. (e) CODE SECTION 162(m) PAYMENT RESTRICTION. Notwithstanding any provision of the Plan to the contrary, payment of all or any portion of an Award will be deferred to the extent that the amount of such Award, when added to any other compensation received or to be received by a Participant who is, or is determined by the Committee to be likely to become, a "covered employee" (under Section 162(m) of the Code), would not be deductible by the Company or a Subsidiary by reason of Section 162(m) of the Code.

The Committee, in its sole and absolute discretion, shall have the authority to waive this payment restriction (in whole or in part) upon the written request of a Participant. 7.

AMENDMENT, TERMINATION AND ADJUSTMENTS (a) The Committee, in its sole and absolute discretion, may alter or amend this Plan from time to time; provided, however, that no such amendment shall, without the consent of a Participant, affect the amount of any outstanding Award or any Award Units of such Participant. 7

Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon a complete termination of the Plan, the Committee, in its sole and absolute discretion, shall have the right to change the time of distribution of Participants' Award Units under the Plan, including requiring that all such Award Units be immediately distributed in the form of lump sum cash payments. (c) Any amendment or termination of the Plan shall be in the form of a written instrument executed by an officer of the Company on the order of the Committee. Such amendment or termination shall become effective as of the date specified in the instrument or, if no such date is specified, on the date of its execution. (d) The Committee may make or provide for an adjustment in the total number of Award Units to be issued under this Plan as the Committee in its sole discretion, exercised in good faith, may determine is equitably required to reflect (i) any stock dividend, stock split, combination of shares, recapitalization or any other change in the capital structure of the Company, (ii) any merger, consolidation, spin-off, split-off, spin-out, split-up, reorganization, partial or complete liquidation or other distribution of assets, issuance of rights or warrants to purchase securities, or (iii) any other corporate transaction or event having an effect similar to any of the foregoing. 9. GENERAL PROVISIONS

GENERAL PROVISIONS (a) NO RIGHT OF EMPLOYMENT. Neither the adoption or operation of this Plan, nor any document describing or referring to this Plan, or any part thereof, shall confer upon any employee any right to continue in the employ of the Company or any Subsidiary, or shall in any way affect the right and power of the Company or any Subsidiary to terminate the employment of any employee at any time with or without assigning a reason therefor to the same extent as the Company or any Subsidiary might have done if this Plan had not been adopted. 8

(b) GOVERNING LAW. The provisions of this Plan shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of North Carolina, except when preempted by federal law. (c) LIABILITY FOR PAYMENT/EXPENSES.

If the Award(s) payable to or on behalf of a Participant are based on the Participant's employment with more than one employer, the liability for such Awards shall be shared by all such employers (by reimbursement to the employer making such payment(s)) as determined by the Company (taking into consideration the Participant's service and compensation paid by each such employer) and as will permit the deduction (for purposes of federal or foreign income tax) by each such employer of its portion of the payments made and to be made hereunder. Expenses of administering the Plan shall be paid by the Company and the Subsidiaries, as directed by the Company. (d) LIMITATION ON RIGHTS OF PARTICIPANTS; NO TRUST. No trust has been created by the Company or any Subsidiary for the payment of Book Value Units granted under this Plan; nor have the grantees of Book Value Units been granted any lien on any assets of the Company or any Subsidiary to secure payment of such benefits.

If an Award is payable to a minor, to a person declared incompetent or to a person incapable of handling the disposition of his property, the Committee may direct payment of such Award to the guardian, legal representative or person having the care and custody of such minor, incompetent or person. The Committee may require such proof of incompetency, minority, incapacity or guardianship as it may deem appropriate prior to the distribution of such Award. Such distribution shall completely discharge the Company and the Subsidiaries from all liability with respect to such Award.

GRANTING OF AWARDS The Committee may, from time to time and upon such conditions as it may determine, authorize the granting of Awards to Participants, which shall be not inconsistent with, and shall be subject to all of the requirements of, the following provisions: (a) Not later than the ninetieth day of each Award Year (or as soon as practicable after the date of the adoption of the Plan, if later), the Committee shall approve (i) a Target Award to be granted to each Participant for such Year and (ii) a formula for determining the amount of each Award, which formula is based upon the Company's average return on equity for such Year. (b) Effective during April of the calendar year following the Award Year, the Committee shall approve: (i) a preliminary calculation of the amount of each Award based upon the application of the formula and actual performance to the Target Awards previously determined in accordance with Section 5(a); and (ii) a final calculation of the amount of each Award to be granted to each Participant for the Award Year, which amount shall be not greater than the amount determined in accordance with Section 5(b)(i) (the "Grant Date" of such Award being January 1st of the calendar year following the Award Year). The Committee shall have the power to decrease, but not to increase, the amount of any Award below the amount determined in accordance with Section 5(b)(i); provided, however, no Award, including any Award equal to the Target Award, shall be payable under the Plan to any Participant except as determined by the Committee. For purposes of this calculation, Awards shall be based on the Participant's Hay Salary Grade as of January 1 of the Award Year. (c) In order to be eligible to receive an Award for an Award Year, the Participant must be employed during the entire Award Year or must have died, become disabled or Retired during the Award

Year, in which case the Participant shall be entitled to a pro-rata portion of the Award for such Award Year. (d) Each Award shall be granted in the form of Book Value Units. The number of Book Value Units to be issued to a Participant shall be determined by dividing the amount of the Award by the Award Unit Price. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Plan, the maximum cash value of the Awards granted to a Participant under this Plan in a single year shall not exceed $2,250,000. (e) Multiple Awards may be granted to a Participant; provided, however, that no two Awards to a Participant may have identical performance periods 6. VESTING; PAYMENT OF AWARDS (a) VESTING.

Each Award shall provide that the Book Value Units granted therein shall be subject to a payment restriction in the manner and to the extent prescribed by the Committee for a period of five years from the Grant Date, or such other shorter or longer period as may be determined by the Committee from time to time. Notwithstanding the foregoing, such payment restrictions shall automatically lapse upon a termination of employment by reason of death, permanent disability or Retirement. In addition, in the case of other special circumstances of a Participant who holds Award Units as to which the payment restrictions have not lapsed, or in case of a termination of the Plan pursuant to Section 8, the Committee may, in its sole discretion, accelerate the time at which such payment restrictions will lapse.

Year, in which case the Participant shall be entitled to a pro-rata portion of the Award for such Award Year. (d) Each Award shall be granted in the form of Book Value Units.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, such payment restrictions shall automatically lapse upon a termination of employment by reason of death, permanent disability or Retirement. In addition, in the case of other special circumstances of a Participant who holds Award Units as to which the payment restrictions have not lapsed, or in case of a termination of the Plan pursuant to Section 8, the Committee may, in its sole discretion, accelerate the time at which such payment restrictions will lapse. (c) PAYMENT DATE/VALUE. Unless a Participant makes a deferral election under Subsection (d) of this Section, as soon as practicable following the lapse of a payment restriction applicable to an Award pursuant to Section 6(b), the employer or former employer of the Participant shall deliver to the Participant (or, if applicable, his Beneficiary), a check in full payment of the Book Value Units granted pursuant to such Award. For participants who terminated employment (for reasons other than death, permanent disability or Retirement), the value of such Book Value Units shall be based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding the date of termination. For Participants who terminated employment due to death, permanent disability or Retirement, the value of such Book Value Units shall be based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding the date on which the payment restriction lapses. There shall be deducted from each payment under the Plan the amount of any tax required by any governmental authority to be

withheld and paid over to such governmental authority for the account of the person entitled to such payment. (d) DEFERRAL OPTION. Prior to the date described in Subsection (c), to the extent determined by the Committee in its sole and absolute discretion (and subject to the rules and procedures specified in the Guidelines), a Participant may make an irrevocable election to defer receipt of 100% of the Award granted to him for a particular Award Year for a period not to exceed ten (10) years from the Grant Date of such Award. A separate deferral election may be made with respect to each Award granted under the Plan. The Awards which are subject to such a deferral election shall continue to be subject to the terms and conditions of this Plan and shall continue to be valued in accordance with the terms of the Plan until the date of payment (or further deferral, as described in the following sentence). In addition, a Participant who has made an irrevocable election to defer the receipt of an Award until exactly ten (10) years from the Grant Date of such Award shall be permitted (subject to the Committee's sole and absolute discretion and the rules and procedures contained in the Guidelines) to make another irrevocable election to further defer the receipt of such deferred Award under and into the NACCO Materials Handling Group, Inc. Unfunded Benefit Plan (the "Unfunded Plan"). Deferred Awards payable to an active employee under this Plan shall be paid to the Participant as soon as practicable following the payment date previously elected by the Participant and shall be based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding such payment date. Deferred Awards which are further deferred into the Unfunded Plan shall be credited to the Unfunded Plan as soon as practicable following the 10th anniversary of the Grant Date of such Award and shall be based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding such anniversary date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any deferral

withheld and paid over to such governmental authority for the account of the person entitled to such payment. (d) DEFERRAL OPTION. Prior to the date described in Subsection (c), to the extent determined by the Committee in its sole and absolute discretion (and subject to the rules and procedures specified in the Guidelines), a Participant may make an irrevocable election to defer receipt of 100% of the Award granted to him for a particular Award Year for a period not to exceed ten (10) years from the Grant Date of such Award. A separate deferral election may be made with respect to each Award granted under the Plan. The Awards which are subject to such a deferral election shall continue to be subject to the terms and conditions of this Plan and shall continue to be valued in accordance with the terms of the Plan until the date of payment (or further deferral, as described in the following sentence). In addition, a Participant who has made an irrevocable election to defer the receipt of an Award until exactly ten (10) years from the Grant Date of such Award shall be permitted (subject to the Committee's sole and absolute discretion and the rules and procedures contained in the Guidelines) to make another irrevocable election to further defer the receipt of such deferred Award under and into the NACCO Materials Handling Group, Inc. Unfunded Benefit Plan (the "Unfunded Plan"). Deferred Awards payable to an active employee under this Plan shall be paid to the Participant as soon as practicable following the payment date previously elected by the Participant and shall be based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding such payment date. Deferred Awards which are further deferred into the Unfunded Plan shall be credited to the Unfunded Plan as soon as practicable following the 10th anniversary of the Grant Date of such Award and shall be based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding such anniversary date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any deferral election hereunder shall automatically terminate (and shall be of no further effect) upon a Participant's termination of employment with the Company and the Subsidiaries for any reason (including death or disability) and payment of all such deferred Awards shall be made as soon as practicable following the date of the Participant's termination of employment, based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding such termination date; provided, however, that any Awards which are subject to a deferral election at the time of a Participant's Retirement shall automatically be deferred under and into the Unfunded Plan as of the date of the Participant's Retirement, with the value of the Book Value Units being based on the Book Value as of the Quarter Date coincident with or immediately preceding such Retirement date if (and only if) the Participant has a currently-effective payment election relating to Awards under the Unfunded Plan and is then eligible to participate in the Unfunded Plan.

7. ASSIGNABILITY No Award granted to a Participant under this Plan shall be transferable by him for any reason whatsoever; provided, however, that upon the death of a Participant the right to the proceeds of an Award may be transferred to a Beneficiary. 8.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon a complete termination of the Plan, the Committee, in its sole and absolute discretion, shall have the right to change the time of distribution of Participants' Award Units under the Plan, including requiring that all such Award Units be immediately distributed in the form of lump sum cash payments. (c) Any amendment or termination of the Plan shall be in the form of a written instrument executed by an officer of the Company on the order of the Committee. Such amendment or termination shall become effective as of the date specified in the instrument or, if no such date is specified, on the date of its execution.

SECTION 10.4 REVOCABILITY OF PLAN ADMINISTRATOR/COMPANY ACTION. Any action taken by the Plan Administrator or the Company with respect to the rights or benefits under the Plan of any person shall be revocable by the Plan Administrator or the Company as to payments not yet made to such person, and acceptance of any Benefits under the Plan constitutes acceptance of and agreement to the Plan Administrator's or the Company's making any appropriate adjustments in future payments to such person (or to recover from such person) any excess payment or underpayment previously made to him.

Exhibit 10(cxx) HAMILTON BEACH/PROCTOR-SILEX. INC ANNUAL INCENTIVE COMPENSATION PLAN - 2001 GENERAL Hamilton Beach/Proctor-Silex, Inc. (the "Company") has established an Annual Incentive Compensation Plan (the "Plan") as part of a competitive compensation program for the Officers and key management employees of the Company and its Subsidiaries. This Plan is also referred to as the Short Term Incentive Compensation Plan. PLAN OBJECTIVE The Company desires to attract and retain talented employees to enable the Company to meet its financial and business objectives. The objective of the Plan is to provide an opportunity to earn annual incentive compensation to those employees whose performance has a significant impact on the Company's short-term and long-term profitability. ADMINISTRATION AND PARTICIPATION

Exhibit 10(cxx) HAMILTON BEACH/PROCTOR-SILEX. INC ANNUAL INCENTIVE COMPENSATION PLAN - 2001 GENERAL Hamilton Beach/Proctor-Silex, Inc. (the "Company") has established an Annual Incentive Compensation Plan (the "Plan") as part of a competitive compensation program for the Officers and key management employees of the Company and its Subsidiaries. This Plan is also referred to as the Short Term Incentive Compensation Plan. PLAN OBJECTIVE The Company desires to attract and retain talented employees to enable the Company to meet its financial and business objectives. The objective of the Plan is to provide an opportunity to earn annual incentive compensation to those employees whose performance has a significant impact on the Company's short-term and long-term profitability. ADMINISTRATION AND PARTICIPATION The Plan is administered by the Nominating, Organization and Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company (the "Committee"). The Committee: a. May amend, modify, or discontinue the Plan. b. Will approve participation in the Plan. Generally, participants will include all employees in Hay Salary Job Grades 14 and above. Employees who voluntarily terminate their employment prior to year-end are not entitled to an award, and employees joining the Company after August of any year will not be entitled to an award. However, the Committee may select any employee who has contributed significantly to the Company's profitability to participate in the Plan and receive an annual incentive compensation award. c. Will determine the annual performance criteria which generates the incentive compensation pool. d. Will determine the total amount of both the target and actual annual incentive compensation pool. e. Will approve individual incentive compensation awards to Officers and employees above Hay Salary Job Grade 17. f. May delegate to the Chief Executive Officer of the Company the power to approve incentive compensation awards to employees in and below Hay Salary Job Grade 17. g. May consider at the end of each year the award of a discretionary bonus amount to non- participants as an addition to the regular incentive compensation pool on a special one-time basis to motivate individuals not eligible to participate in the Plan, h. May approve a pro rata incentive compensation award for participants in the Plan whose employment is terminated (1) due to death, disability, retirement or facility closure, such award to be determined pursuant to the provisions of subparagraphs e. and f. above or (2) under other circumstances at the recommendation of the Chief Executive Officer of the Company. DETERMINATION OF CORPORATE INCENTIVE COMPENSATION POOL Each participant in the Plan will have an individual target incentive compensation percentage which is determined by the participant's Hay Salary Job Grade. This percentage is multiplied by the midpoint of the participant's Hay Salary Job Grade to determine his/her individual target incentive compensation award. The total of the target incentive compensation awards of all participants equals the target corporate incentive compensation pool (the "Target Pool"). The Target Pool is approved each year by the Committee. 1

The actual corporate incentive compensation pool (the " Actual Pool") is determined at the end of each year based on the Company's actual performance against specific criteria established in the beginning of the year by the Committee. The Target Pool is adjusted upwards or downwards by corporate performance adjustment factors to determine the Actual Pool. In no event will the actual Pool exceed 150% of the Target Pool, except to

The actual corporate incentive compensation pool (the " Actual Pool") is determined at the end of each year based on the Company's actual performance against specific criteria established in the beginning of the year by the Committee. The Target Pool is adjusted upwards or downwards by corporate performance adjustment factors to determine the Actual Pool. In no event will the actual Pool exceed 150% of the Target Pool, except to the extent that the Committee elects to increase the Actual Pool by up to 10%, as described below. It is the intent of the Plan that the Actual Pool, as determined above, will be the final total corporate incentive compensation pool. However, the Committee, in its sole discretion, may increase or decrease by up to 10% the Actual Pool or may approve an incentive compensation pool where there would normally be no pool due to Company performance which is below the criteria established for the year. The Actual and Target Pools exclude commission personnel such as salespersons, regional general managers, and manufacturers representatives. DETERMINATION OR INDIVIDUAL INCENTIVE COMPENSATION AWARDS Hay Salary Job Grades and the corresponding target incentive percentage for each participant in the Plan will be established at the beginning of each year and approved by the Committee. Individual target incentive compensation will then be adjusted by the appropriate pool factor. Such adjusted individual incentive compensation will then be further modified based on a participant's performance as compared to his individual goals for the year. The total of all individual incentive compensation awards must not exceed the Actual Pool for the year. PERFORMANCE TARGETS -SEE PLAN SUMMARY 2

remaining payments hereunder shall be payable, as they come due, to the estate of the Beneficiary hereunder and (ii) if the Beneficiary hereunder predeceases the Beneficiary under the Cash Balance Plan and the Participant, the Beneficiary hereunder shall revert to the Beneficiary last effectively designated under the Cash Balance Plan unless and until the Participant again makes a change of Beneficiary pursuant to Section 7.2. ARTICLE VIII MISCELLANEOUS SECTION 8.1 LIABILITY OF COMPANY. Nothing in this Plan shall constitute the creation of a trust or other fiduciary relationship between the Company and any Participant, Beneficiary or any other person. SECTION 8.2 LIMITATION ON RIGHTS OF PARTICIPANTS AND BENEFICIARIES - NO LIEN. The Plan is designed to be an unfunded, nonqualified plan. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to create a trust or lien in favor of any Participant or Beneficiary on any assets of the Company. The Company shall have no

remaining payments hereunder shall be payable, as they come due, to the estate of the Beneficiary hereunder and (ii) if the Beneficiary hereunder predeceases the Beneficiary under the Cash Balance Plan and the Participant, the Beneficiary hereunder shall revert to the Beneficiary last effectively designated under the Cash Balance Plan unless and until the Participant again makes a change of Beneficiary pursuant to Section 7.2. ARTICLE VIII MISCELLANEOUS SECTION 8.1 LIABILITY OF COMPANY. Nothing in this Plan shall constitute the creation of a trust or other fiduciary relationship between the Company and any Participant, Beneficiary or any other person. SECTION 8.2 LIMITATION ON RIGHTS OF PARTICIPANTS AND BENEFICIARIES - NO LIEN. The Plan is designed to be an unfunded, nonqualified plan. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to create a trust or lien in favor of any Participant or Beneficiary on any assets of the Company. The Company shall have no obligation to purchase any assets that do not remain subject to the claims of the creditors of the Company for use in connection with the Plan. No Participant or Beneficiary or any other person shall have any preferred claim on, or any beneficial ownership interest in, any assets of the Company prior to the time that such assets are paid to the Participant or Beneficiary as provided herein. Each Participant and Beneficiary shall have the status of a general unsecured creditor of the Company. SECTION 8.3 NO GUARANTEE OF EMPLOYMENT. Nothing in this Plan shall be construed as guaranteeing future employment to Participants. A Participant continues to be an Employee of the Company solely at the will of the Company subject to discharge at any time, with or without cause. SECTION 8.4 PAYMENT TO GUARDIAN. If a Benefit payable hereunder is payable to a minor, to a person declared incompetent or to a person incapable of handling the disposition of his property, the Plan Administrator may direct payment of such benefit to the guardian, legal representative or person having the care and custody of such minor, incompetent or person. The Plan Administrator may require such proof of incompetency, minority, incapacity or guardianship as it may deem appropriate prior to distribution of the benefit. Such distribution shall completely discharge the Company from all liability with respect to such Benefit. SECTION 8.5 ASSIGNMENT. No right or interest under this Plan of any Participant or Beneficiary shall be assignable or transferable in any manner or be subject to alienation, anticipation, sale, pledge, encumbrance or other legal process or in any manner be liable for or subject to the debts or liabilities of the Participant or Beneficiary. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Plan Administrator shall honor a judgment, order or decree from a state domestic relations court which requires the payment of part or all or a Participant's or Beneficiary's vested interest under this Plan to an "alternate payee" as defined in Code Section 414(p). SECTION 8.6 SEVERABILITY. If any provision of this Plan or the application thereof to any circumstance(s) or person(s) is held to be invalid by a court of competent 13

jurisdiction, the remainder of the Plan and the application of such provision to other circumstances or persons shall not be affected thereby. ARTICLE IX ADMINISTRATION OF PLAN SECTION 9.1 ADMINISTRATION. (a) IN GENERAL. The Plan shall be administered by the Plan Administrator. The Plan Administrator shall have discretion to interpret where necessary all provisions of the Plan (including, without limitation, by supplying omissions from, correcting deficiencies in, or resolving inconsistencies or ambiguities in, the language of the Plan), to make factual findings with respect to any issue arising under the Plan, to determine the rights and status under the Plan of Participants, or other persons, to resolve questions (including factual questions) or disputes arising under the Plan and to make any determinations with respect to the benefits payable under the Plan and the persons entitled thereto as may be necessary for the purposes of the Plan. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Plan Administrator is hereby granted the authority (i) to

jurisdiction, the remainder of the Plan and the application of such provision to other circumstances or persons shall not be affected thereby. ARTICLE IX ADMINISTRATION OF PLAN SECTION 9.1 ADMINISTRATION. (a) IN GENERAL. The Plan shall be administered by the Plan Administrator. The Plan Administrator shall have discretion to interpret where necessary all provisions of the Plan (including, without limitation, by supplying omissions from, correcting deficiencies in, or resolving inconsistencies or ambiguities in, the language of the Plan), to make factual findings with respect to any issue arising under the Plan, to determine the rights and status under the Plan of Participants, or other persons, to resolve questions (including factual questions) or disputes arising under the Plan and to make any determinations with respect to the benefits payable under the Plan and the persons entitled thereto as may be necessary for the purposes of the Plan. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Plan Administrator is hereby granted the authority (i) to determine whether a particular Employee is a Participant, and (ii) to determine if a person is entitled to Excess Retirement Benefits hereunder and, if so, the amount and duration of such Benefits. The Plan Administrator's determination of the rights of any person hereunder shall be final and binding on all persons, subject only to the provisions of Sections 9.3 and 9.4 hereof. (b) DELEGATION OF DUTIES. The Plan Administrator may delegate any of its administrative duties, including, without limitation, duties with respect to the processing, review, investigation, approval and payment of Excess Retirement Benefits, to a named administrator or administrators. SECTION 9.2 REGULATIONS. The Plan Administrator shall promulgate any rules and regulations it deems necessary in order to carry out the purposes of the Plan or to interpret the provisions of the Plan; provided, however, that no rule, regulation or interpretation shall be contrary to the provisions of the Plan. The rules, regulations and interpretations made by the Plan Administrator shall, subject only to the provisions of Sections 9.3 and 9.4 hereof, be final and binding on all persons. SECTION 9.3 CLAIMS PROCEDURES. The Plan Administrator shall determine the rights of any person to any Excess Retirement Benefits hereunder. Any person who believes that he has not received the Excess Retirement Benefits to which he is entitled under the Plan may file a claim in writing with the Plan Administrator. The Plan Administrator shall, no later than 90 days after the receipt of a claim (plus an additional period of 90 days if required for processing, provided that notice of the extension of time is given to the claimant within the first 90 day period), either allow or deny the claim in writing. If a claimant does not receive written notice of the Plan Administrator's decision on his claim within the above-mentioned period, the claim shall be deemed to have been denied in full. A written denial of a claim by the Plan Administrator, wholly or partially, shall be written in a manner calculated to be understood by the claimant and shall include: (a) the specific reasons for the denial; 14

(b) specific reference to pertinent Plan provisions on which the denial is based; (c) a description of any additional material or information necessary for the claimant to perfect the claim and an explanation of why such material or information is necessary; and (d) an explanation of the claim review procedure. A claimant whose claim is denied (or his duly authorized representative) may within 60 days after receipt of denial of a claim file with the Plan Administrator a written request for a review of such claim. If the claimant does not file a request for review of his claim within such 60-day period, the claimant shall be deemed to have acquiesced in the original decision of the Plan Administrator on his claim. If such an appeal is so filed within such 60 day period, the Company (or its delegate) shall conduct a full and fair review of such claim. During such review, the claimant

(b) specific reference to pertinent Plan provisions on which the denial is based; (c) a description of any additional material or information necessary for the claimant to perfect the claim and an explanation of why such material or information is necessary; and (d) an explanation of the claim review procedure. A claimant whose claim is denied (or his duly authorized representative) may within 60 days after receipt of denial of a claim file with the Plan Administrator a written request for a review of such claim. If the claimant does not file a request for review of his claim within such 60-day period, the claimant shall be deemed to have acquiesced in the original decision of the Plan Administrator on his claim. If such an appeal is so filed within such 60 day period, the Company (or its delegate) shall conduct a full and fair review of such claim. During such review, the claimant shall be given the opportunity to review documents that are pertinent to his claim and to submit issues and comments in writing. For this purpose, the Company (or its delegate) shall have the same power to interpret the Plan and make findings of fact thereunder as is given to the Plan Administrator under Section 9.1(a) above. The Company shall mail or deliver to the claimant a written decision on the matter based on the facts and the pertinent provisions of the Plan within 60 days after the receipt of the request for review (unless special circumstances require an extension of up to 60 additional days, in which case written notice of such extension shall be given to the claimant prior to the commencement of such extension). Such decision shall be written in a manner calculated to be understood by the claimant, shall state the specific reasons for the decision and the specific Plan provisions on which the decision was based and shall, to the extent permitted by law, be final and binding on all interested persons. If the decision on review is not furnished to the claimant within the abovementioned time period, the claim shall be deemed to have been denied on review. SECTION 9.4 REVOCABILITY OF PLAN ADMINISTRATOR/ COMPANY ACTION. Any action taken by the Plan Administrator or the Company with respect to the rights or benefits under the Plan of any person shall be revocable by the Plan Administrator or the Company as to payments not yet made to such person, and acceptance of any Excess Retirement Benefits under the Plan constitutes acceptance of and agreement to the Plan Administrator's or the Company's making any appropriate adjustments in future payments to such person (or to recover from such person) any excess payment or underpayment previously made to him. SECTION 9.5 AMENDMENT. The Committee may at any time amend any or all of the provisions of this Plan, except that (a) no such amendment may adversely affect the amount of any Participant's Excess Retirement Benefit as of the date of such amendment and (b) no such amendment may suspend the crediting of earnings on the balance of a Participant's Account, until the entire balance of such Account has been distributed, in either case, without the prior written consent of the affected Participant. Any amendment shall be in the form of a written instrument executed by an officer of the Company on the order of the Committee. Subject to the 15

foregoing provisions of this Section, such amendment shall become effective as of the date specified in such instrument or, if no such date is specified, on the date of its execution.

FINANCIAL SUMMARY NACCO Industries, Inc. ("NACCO," the parent company) and its wholly owned subsidiaries (collectively, the "Company") operate in three distinct industries: lignite mining, lift trucks and housewares. Results of operations and financial condition are discussed separately by segment, which corresponds with the industry groupings, except that the Company segments its lift truck operations into two components: wholesale manufacturing and retail distribution. Results by segment are also summarized in Note 20 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. The North American Coal Corporation ("NACoal") mines and markets lignite primarily as fuel for power providers. NMHG Holding Co., through its wholly owned subsidiaries, NACCO Materials Handling Group, Inc. ("NMHG Wholesale") and NMHG Distribution Co. ("NMHG Retail") (collectively "NMHG") designs, engineers, manufactures, sells and services a full line of lift trucks and service parts marketed worldwide under the Hyster(R) and Yale(R) brand names. NMHG Wholesale includes the manufacture and sale of lift trucks and related service parts, primarily to independent and wholly owned Hyster and Yale retail dealerships. NMHG Retail includes the sale and service of Hyster and Yale lift trucks and related service parts by wholly owned retail dealerships. NACCO Housewares Group ("Housewares") consists of Hamilton Beach-Proctor-Silex, Inc. ("HBPS"), a leading manufacturer and marketer of small electric motor and heat-driven appliances as well as commercial products for restaurants, bars and hotels, and The Kitchen Collection, Inc. ("KCI"), a national specialty retailer of brand-name kitchenware, small electrical appliances and related accessories. Selected consolidated operating results of the Company were as follows:

(1) An extraordinary gain was recognized in 2000 as a result of a reduction to Bellaire Corporation's closed mine obligations relating to amounts owed to the United Mine Workers of America Combined Benefit Fund arising as a result of the Coal Industry Retiree Health Benefit Act of 1992. See also discussion in Note 4 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. (2) A cumulative effect of a change in accounting was recognized in 1999 for a change in the accounting for startup costs at NACoal. Prior to 1999, certain start-up costs were deferred and amortized over the life of the related mine. These previously deferred start-up costs were written off as a cumulative effect of a change in accounting as required by Statement of Position 98-5, "Reporting on the Costs of Start-up Activities." See also discussion in Note 2 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. 24

The special items, in the aggregate, materially affect year-to-year comparability. These items were as follows: NACOAL: In the fourth quarter of 2000, NACoal wrote off $2.4 million ($1.5 million after-tax) of previously capitalized development costs incurred for a power plant and mine development project in Turkey ("Turkey Project write-off"). This write-off resulted from NACoal's decision to cease development of this project in Turkey. In 1999, NACoal recognized the cumulative effect of a required change in accounting for start-up costs of $1.2 million, net-of-tax. NMHG WHOLESALE: In the fourth quarter of 2000, NMHG Wholesale recorded a $13.9 million ($8.3 million after-tax) restructuring charge as a result of a decision to phase out the Danville, Illinois, manufacturing plant. See a further discussion in Note 3 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. Also in the fourth quarter of 2000, NMHG Wholesale recorded a $36.4 million reclassification of freight revenue as a result of adopting the Emerging Issues Task Force's ("EITF") consensus on Issue Number 00-10, "Accounting for Shipping and Handling Fees and Costs" ("EITF 00-10"), which requires freight billed to customers to be included as a component of revenues rather than as an offset to the cost of sales for freight deliveries, which was NMHG Wholesale's prior practice. EITF 00-10 also required restatement of prior years' revenues, which resulted in a $33.1 million increase to revenues in each of 1999 and 1998. The net effect of this change in reporting is an increase to revenues of $3.3 million for 2000 as compared with 1999.

NACCO & OTHER: In 2000, Bellaire Corporation ("Bellaire," a wholly owned non-operating subsidiary of NACCO and part of NACCO & Other) recognized an extraordinary gain of $29.9 million, net-of-tax, related to a reduction in the accrual for obligations to the United Mine Workers of America Combined Benefit Fund ("UMWA") arising as a result of the Coal Industry Retiree Health Benefit Act of 1992 ("Coal Act"). In addition, Bellaire recognized an increase to certain closed mine reserves of $3.6 million after-tax related to former Eastern U.S. underground mining obligations. See further discussion of these Bellaire adjustments in Notes 3 and 4 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. The net effect of these adjustments relating to closed mine obligations is an increase to net income in 2000 of $26.3 million. In 2000, NACCO began charging fees to the operating subsidiaries for services provided. These fees totaled $10.1 million ($6.6 million after-tax) for the year ended December 31, 2000. See additional discussion in Note 20 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. 25

MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS NACCO Industries, Inc. and Subsidiaries (Tabular Amounts in Millions, Except Per Share, Unit, Store and Percentage Data) THE NORTH AMERICAN COAL CORPORATION NACoal mines and markets lignite for use primarily as fuel for power providers. The lignite is surface mined in North Dakota, Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. During 1997, Mississippi Lignite Mining Company ("MLMC") was formed as a joint venture between NACoal and Phillips Coal Company. This joint venture was formed to develop and mine lignite at the Red Hills lignite mine near Ackerman, Mississippi. Development of the mine site began in 1998 and has continued through 2000. Delivery of lignite from MLMC to its customer is expected to begin gradually during the first half of 2001. Delivery of over 3.5 million tons per annum is expected once the customer's power plant becomes fully operational, which is anticipated to be in mid-2001. On October 11, 2000, NACoal acquired certain assets from Phillips Coal Company ("Phillips Acquisition"), including its 75 percent joint venture interest in MLMC, its 50 percent joint venture interest in Red River Mining Company ("Red River") and the related lignite reserves under committed contracts at both MLMC and Red River. As a result of the Phillips Acquisition, NACoal now owns 100 percent of Red River and MLMC. In addition, NACoal acquired from Phillips approximately 560 million tons of undeveloped lignite reserves in Texas, Mississippi and Tennessee. Excluding the Phillips Acquisition, total NACoal coal reserves approximate 2.0 billion tons, with 1.1 billion tons committed to customers pursuant to long-term contracts. Including the Phillips acquisition, at December 31, 2000, NACoal coal reserves approximated 2.8 billion tons, with 1.3 billion tons committed to customers pursuant to long-term contracts. The Phillips Acquisition was accounted for using the purchase method of accounting and, accordingly, the results of operations for the businesses acquired are fully consolidated in the accompanying financial statements beginning October 11, 2000. Prior to the Phillips Acquisition, NACoal accounted for its 25 percent interest in MLMC using the equity method of accounting. In addition to the Phillips Acquisition, NACoal operates four other lignite mines, including three project mining subsidiaries ("Coteau," "Falkirk" and "Sabine") and a NACoal division ("San Miguel"). NACoal also provides dragline mining services ("Florida dragline operations") for a limerock quarry near Miami, Florida. The operating results for the Florida dragline operations, San Miguel and Red River are included in other mining operations.

Including the Phillips acquisition, at December 31, 2000, NACoal coal reserves approximated 2.8 billion tons, with 1.3 billion tons committed to customers pursuant to long-term contracts. The Phillips Acquisition was accounted for using the purchase method of accounting and, accordingly, the results of operations for the businesses acquired are fully consolidated in the accompanying financial statements beginning October 11, 2000. Prior to the Phillips Acquisition, NACoal accounted for its 25 percent interest in MLMC using the equity method of accounting. In addition to the Phillips Acquisition, NACoal operates four other lignite mines, including three project mining subsidiaries ("Coteau," "Falkirk" and "Sabine") and a NACoal division ("San Miguel"). NACoal also provides dragline mining services ("Florida dragline operations") for a limerock quarry near Miami, Florida. The operating results for the Florida dragline operations, San Miguel and Red River are included in other mining operations. [BAR GRAPH] NACOAL REVENUES $249.1 $262.9 $285.4 $277.7 $289.2 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 FINANCIAL REVIEW NACoal's three project mining subsidiaries (Coteau, Falkirk and Sabine), which represent a significant portion of NACoal's operations, mine lignite for utility customers pursuant to long-term contracts at prices based on actual cost plus an agreed pre-tax profit per ton. Due to the cost-plus nature of these contracts, revenues and operating profits are affected by increases and decreases in operating costs, as well as by tons sold. Net income of these project mines, however, is not significantly affected by changes in such operating costs, which include costs of operations, interest expense and certain other items. Because of the nature of the contracts at these three mines, operating results for NACoal are best analyzed in terms of lignite tons sold, income before taxes and net income. 26
