					Exhibit 10.47.01 AMENDMENT NO. 1 TO THE ALBERTSONS LONG-TERM INCENTIVE PLAN This Amendment is made by Albertson's, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Company" or the "Employer"). RECITALS: A. The Company has established the Long-Term Incentive Plan, effective February 1, 2003 (the "Plan"); B. The Board of Directors of the Company or the Management Development/ Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company, pursuant to Section XI of the Plan, retains the right to amend the Plan; and C. The Company has determined that it is advisable to amend the Plan in the manner hereinafter set forth. AMENDMENT The Plan is hereby amended as follows: 1. Section VIII of the Plan is hereby amended by the addition of the following provisions immediately following the end of such Section VIII: "Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Plan, if a Participant's employment with the Company and its subsidiaries is terminated by the Company or any subsidiary without "Cause" or by the Participant for "Good Reason" (as such terms are defined in the Company's form of Change of Control Severance Agreement applicable to executive officers of the Company) during the two-year period following a Change in Control, the Participant will be entitled to receive payment of the target Long-term Incentive Compensation Award for all Award Periods in effect at the time of such termination of service, prorated based on the ratio of the number of weeks of participation during such Award Period until the occurrence of the Change in Control to the aggregate number of weeks in such Award Period. Payment of the prorated Long-term Incentive Compensation Awards pursuant to the preceding sentence will be made within five business days of the Participant's termination of employment; provided, however, that if this payment would constitute a "deferral of compensation" under Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"), the Participant will receive such payment upon the earlier of: (A) six months following the Participant's "separation from service" with the Company (as such phrase is defined in Section 409A of the Code) or (B) the Participant's death. If a Participant remains employed with the Company until the end of the fiscal year in which the Change in Control occurs, the minimum Long-term Incentive Compensation Award for any such

Participant for any Award Period ending at the close of the fiscal year in which the Change in Control occurs will be no less than such Participant's target Long-term Incentive Compensation Award for such Award Period, prorated on the basis of the ratio of the number of weeks during the Award Period until the occurrence of the Change in Control to the aggregate number of weeks in such Award Period." IN WITNESS WHEREOF, this instrument has been duly executed by the undersigned on this 26th day of May, 2006. ALBERTSON'S, INC.

Both the Company and Indemnitee recognize the increased risk of litigation and other claims being asserted against directors and officers of companies in today's environment. D.

NOW, THEREFORE, the parties hereby agree as follows: 1. CERTAIN DEFINITIONS. In addition to terms defined elsewhere herein, the following terms have the following meanings when used in this Agreement with initial capital letters: () "AFFILIATE" has the meaning given to that term in Rule 405 under the Securities Act of 1933, provided, however, that for purposes of this Agreement the Company and its subsidiaries will not be deemed to constitute Affiliates of Indemnitee or the Indemnitee. () "CLAIM" means any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, or any inquiry or investigation, whether instituted, made or conducted by the Company or any other party, including without limitation any governmental entity, that Indemnitee determines might lead to the institution of any such action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative, arbitrative, investigative or other.

() "EXPENSES" includes attorneys' and experts' fees, expenses and charges and all other costs, expenses and obligations paid or incurred in connection with investigating, defending, being a witness in or participating in (including on appeal), or preparing to defend, be a witness in or participate in, any Claim. () "INDEMNIFIABLE LOSSES" means any and all Expenses, damages, losses, liabilities, judgments, fines, penalties and amounts paid in settlement (including without limitation all interest, assessments and other charges paid or payable in connection with or in respect of any of the foregoing) (collectively, "Losses") relating to, resulting from or arising out of any act or failure to act by the Indemnitee, or his or her status as any person referred to in clause (i) of this sentence, (i) in his or her capacity as a director, officer, employee or agent of the

() "EXPENSES" includes attorneys' and experts' fees, expenses and charges and all other costs, expenses and obligations paid or incurred in connection with investigating, defending, being a witness in or participating in (including on appeal), or preparing to defend, be a witness in or participate in, any Claim. () "INDEMNIFIABLE LOSSES" means any and all Expenses, damages, losses, liabilities, judgments, fines, penalties and amounts paid in settlement (including without limitation all interest, assessments and other charges paid or payable in connection with or in respect of any of the foregoing) (collectively, "Losses") relating to, resulting from or arising out of any act or failure to act by the Indemnitee, or his or her status as any person referred to in clause (i) of this sentence, (i) in his or her capacity as a director, officer, employee or agent of the Company, any of its Affiliates or any other entity as to which the indemnitee is or was serving at the request of the Company as a director, officer, employee, member, manager, trustee or agent of another corporation, limited liability company, partnership, joint venture, trust or other entity or enterprise, whether or not for profit and (ii) in respect of any business, transaction or other activity of any entity referred to in clause (i) of this sentence. 2. BASIC INDEMNIFICATION ARRANGEMENT. The Company will indemnify and hold harmless Indemnitee, to the fullest extent permitted by the laws of the State of Delaware in effect on the date hereof or as such laws may from time to time hereafter be amended to increase the scope of such permitted indemnification, against all Indemnifiable Losses relating to, resulting from or arising out of any Claim. The failure by Indemnitee to notify the Company of such Claim will not relieve the Company from any liability hereunder unless, and only to the extent that, the Company did not otherwise learn of the Claim and such failure results in forfeiture by the Company of substantial defenses, rights or insurance coverage. Except as provided in Section 17, however, Indemnitee will not be entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Agreement in connection with any Claim initiated by Indemnitee against the Company or any director or officer of the Company unless the Company has joined in or consented to the initiation of such Claim. If so requested by Indemnitee, the Company will advance within two business days of such request any and all Expenses to Indemnitee which Indemnitee determines reasonably likely to be payable, provided, however, that Indemnitee will return, without interest, any such advance which remains unspent at the final conclusion of the Claim to which the advance related. 3. INDEMNIFICATION FOR ADDITIONAL EXPENSES. Without limiting the generality or effect of the foregoing, the Company will indemnify Indemnitee against and, if requested by Indemnitee, will within two business days of such request advance to Indemnitee, any and all attorneys' fees and other Expenses paid or incurred by Indemnitee in connection with any Claim asserted or brought by Indemnitee for (i) indemnification or advance payment of Expenses by the Company under this Agreement or any other agreement or under any provision of the Company's Constituent Documents now or hereafter in effect relating to Claims for Indemnifiable Losses and/or (ii) recovery under any directors' and officers' liability insurance policies maintained by the Company, regardless of whether Indemnitee ultimately is determined to be entitled to such indemnification, advance expense payment or insurance recovery, as the case may be. -2-

4. PARTIAL INDEMNITY, ETC. If Indemnitee is entitled under any provision of this Agreement to indemnification by the Company for some or a portion of any Indemnifiable Loss but not for all of the total amount thereof, the Company will nevertheless indemnify Indemnitee for the portion thereof to which Indemnitee is entitled. Moreover, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, to the extent that Indemnitee has been successful on the merits or otherwise in defense of any or all Claims relating in whole or in part to an Indemnifiable Loss or in defense of any issue or matter therein, including without limitation dismissal without prejudice, Indemnitee will be indemnified against all Expenses incurred in connection therewith. In connection with any determination as to whether Indemnitee is entitled to be indemnified hereunder, there will be a presumption that Indemnitee is so entitled, which presumption the Company may overcome only by its adducing clear and convincing evidence to the contrary. 5. NO OTHER PRESUMPTION. For purposes of this Agreement, the termination of any Claim by judgment, order, settlement (whether with or without court approval) or conviction, or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent, will not create a presumption that Indemnitee did not meet any particular standard of conduct or have any particular belief or that a court has determined that indemnification is not permitted by applicable law. 6. NON-EXCLUSIVITY, ETC. The rights of Indemnitee hereunder will be in addition to any other rights

4. PARTIAL INDEMNITY, ETC. If Indemnitee is entitled under any provision of this Agreement to indemnification by the Company for some or a portion of any Indemnifiable Loss but not for all of the total amount thereof, the Company will nevertheless indemnify Indemnitee for the portion thereof to which Indemnitee is entitled. Moreover, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, to the extent that Indemnitee has been successful on the merits or otherwise in defense of any or all Claims relating in whole or in part to an Indemnifiable Loss or in defense of any issue or matter therein, including without limitation dismissal without prejudice, Indemnitee will be indemnified against all Expenses incurred in connection therewith. In connection with any determination as to whether Indemnitee is entitled to be indemnified hereunder, there will be a presumption that Indemnitee is so entitled, which presumption the Company may overcome only by its adducing clear and convincing evidence to the contrary. 5. NO OTHER PRESUMPTION. For purposes of this Agreement, the termination of any Claim by judgment, order, settlement (whether with or without court approval) or conviction, or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent, will not create a presumption that Indemnitee did not meet any particular standard of conduct or have any particular belief or that a court has determined that indemnification is not permitted by applicable law. 6. NON-EXCLUSIVITY, ETC. The rights of Indemnitee hereunder will be in addition to any other rights Indemnitee may have under the Constituent Documents, or the substantive laws of the Company's jurisdiction of incorporation, any other contract or otherwise, including specifically the Employment Agreement between the Company and Indemnitee dated April 23, 2001 and amended July 19, 2001 (collectively, "Other Indemnity Provisions"); provided, however, that (i) to the extent that Indemnitee otherwise would have any greater right to indemnification under any Other Indemnity Provision, Indemnitee will be deemed to have such greater right hereunder and (ii) to the extent that any change is made to any Other Indemnity Provision which permits any greater right to indemnification than that provided under this Agreement as of the date hereof, Indemnitee will be deemed to have such greater right hereunder. The Company will not adopt any amendment to any of the Constituent Documents the effect of which would be to deny, diminish or encumber Indemnitee's right to indemnification under this Agreement or any Other Indemnity Provision. 7. LIABILITY INSURANCE AND FUNDING. To the extent the Company maintains an insurance policy or policies providing directors' and officers' liability insurance, Indemnitee will be covered by such policy or policies, in accordance with its or their terms, to the maximum extent of the coverage available for any director or officer of the Company. The Company may, but will not be required to, create a trust fund, grant a security interest or use other means, including without limitation a letter of credit, to ensure the payment of such amounts as may be necessary to satisfy its obligations to indemnify and advance expenses pursuant to this Agreement. 8. SUBROGATION. In the event of payment under this Agreement, the Company will be subrogated to the extent of such payment to all of the related rights of recovery of Indemnitee against other persons or entities (other than Indemnitee's successors). The Indemnitee will execute all papers reasonably required to evidence such rights of recovery (all of Indemnitee's reasonable Expenses, including attorneys' fees and charges, related thereto to be reimbursed by or, at the option of Indemnitee, advanced by the Company). -3-

9. NO DUPLICATION OF PAYMENTS. The Company will not be liable under this Agreement to make any payment in connection with any Indemnifiable Loss made against Indemnitee to the extent Indemnitee has otherwise actually received payment (net of Expenses incurred in connection therewith) under any insurance policy, the Constituent Documents and Other Indemnity Provisions or otherwise of the amounts otherwise indemnifiable hereunder. 10. DEFENSE OF CLAIMS. The Company will be entitled to participate in the defense of any Claim or to assume the defense thereof, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnitee, provided that in the event that (i) the use of counsel chosen by the Company to represent Indemnitee would present such counsel with an actual or potential conflict, (ii) the named parties in any such Claim (including any impleaded parties) include both the Company and Indemnitee and Indemnitee shall conclude that there may be one or more legal defenses available to him or her that are different from or in addition to those available to the Company, or (iii) any such representation by the Company would be precluded under the applicable standards of professional conduct then prevailing, then Indemnitee will be entitled to retain separate counsel (but not more than one law firm plus, if

The Company will not be liable under this Agreement to make any payment in connection with any Indemnifiable Loss made against Indemnitee to the extent Indemnitee has otherwise actually received payment (net of Expenses incurred in connection therewith) under any insurance policy, the Constituent Documents and Other Indemnity Provisions or otherwise of the amounts otherwise indemnifiable hereunder. 10. DEFENSE OF CLAIMS. The Company will be entitled to participate in the defense of any Claim or to assume the defense thereof, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnitee, provided that in the event that (i) the use of counsel chosen by the Company to represent Indemnitee would present such counsel with an actual or potential conflict, (ii) the named parties in any such Claim (including any impleaded parties) include both the Company and Indemnitee and Indemnitee shall conclude that there may be one or more legal defenses available to him or her that are different from or in addition to those available to the Company, or (iii) any such representation by the Company would be precluded under the applicable standards of professional conduct then prevailing, then Indemnitee will be entitled to retain separate counsel (but not more than one law firm plus, if applicable, local counsel in respect of any particular Claim) at the Company's expense. The Company will not, without the prior written consent of the Indemnitee, effect any settlement of any threatened or pending Claim which the Indemnitee is or could have been a party unless such settlement solely involves the payment of money and includes an unconditional release of the Indemnitee from all liability on any claims that are the subject matter of such Claim. 11. SUCCESSORS AND BINDING AGREEMENT. (a) The Company will require any successor (whether direct or indirect, by purchase, merger, consolidation, reorganization or otherwise) to all or substantially all of the business or assets of the Company, by agreement in form and substance satisfactory to Indemnitee and his or her counsel, expressly to assume and agree to perform this Agreement in the same manner and to the same extent the Company would be required to perform if no such succession had taken place. This Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Company and any successor to the Company, including without limitation any person acquiring directly or indirectly all or substantially all of the business or assets of the Company whether by purchase, merger, consolidation, reorganization or otherwise (and such successor will thereafter be deemed the "Company" for purposes of this Agreement), but will not otherwise be assignable or delegatable by the Company. () This Agreement will inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the Indemnitee's personal or legal representatives, executors, administrators, successors, heirs, distributees, legatees and other successors. () This Agreement is personal in nature and neither of the parties hereto will, without the consent of the other, assign or delegate this Agreement or any rights or obligations hereunder except as expressly provided in Sections 11(a) and 11(b). Without limiting the generality or effect of the foregoing, Indemnitee's right to receive payments hereunder will not be assignable, whether by pledge, creation of a security interest or otherwise, other than by a transfer by the Indemnitee's will or by the laws of descent and distribution, and, in the event of any attempted assignment or transfer contrary to this Section 11(c), the Company will have no liability to pay any amount so attempted to be assigned or transferred. -4-

For all purposes of this Agreement, all communications, including without limitation notices, consents, requests or approvals, required or permitted to be given hereunder will be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given when hand delivered or dispatched by electronic facsimile transmission (with receipt thereof orally confirmed), or five business days after having been mailed by United States registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid or one business day after having been sent for next-day delivery by a nationally recognized overnight courier service, addressed to the Company (to the attention of the Secretary of the Company) and to the Indemnitee at the addresses shown on the signature page hereto, or to such other address as any party may have furnished to the other in writing and in accordance herewith, except that notices of changes of address will be effective only upon receipt. 13. GOVERNING LAW. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to the principles of conflict of laws of such State. Each party consents to non-exclusive jurisdiction of any

GOVERNING LAW. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to the principles of conflict of laws of such State. Each party consents to non-exclusive jurisdiction of any Delaware state or federal court or any court in any other jurisdiction in which a Claim is commenced by a third person for purposes of any action, suit or proceeding hereunder, waives any objection to venue therein or any defense based on forum non conveniens or similar theories and agrees that service of process may be effected in any such action, suit or proceeding by notice given in accordance with Section 12. 14. VALIDITY. If any provision of this Agreement or the application of any provision hereof to any person or circumstance is held invalid, unenforceable or otherwise illegal, the remainder of this Agreement and the application of such provision to any other person or circumstance will not be affected, and the provision so held to be invalid, unenforceable or otherwise illegal will be reformed to the extent, and only to the extent, necessary to make it enforceable, valid or legal. 15. MISCELLANEOUS. No provision of this Agreement may be waived, modified or discharged unless such waiver, modification or discharge is agreed to in writing signed by Indemnitee and the Company.

References to Sections are to references to Sections of this Agreement. 16. COUNTERPARTS. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which will be deemed to be an original but all of which together will constitute one and the same agreement. 17. LEGAL FEES AND EXPENSES. It is the intent of the Company that the Indemnitee not be required to incur legal fees and or other Expenses associated with the interpretation, enforcement or defense of Indemnitee's rights under this Agreement by litigation or otherwise because the cost and expense thereof would substantially detract from the benefits intended to be extended to the Indemnitee hereunder. Accordingly, without limiting the generality or effect of -5-

any other provision hereof, if it should appear to the Indemnitee that the Company has failed to comply with any of its obligations under this Agreement or in the event that the Company or any other person takes or threatens to take any action to declare this Agreement void or unenforceable, or institutes any litigation or other action or proceeding designed to deny, or to recover from, the Indemnitee the benefits provided or intended to be provided to the Indemnitee hereunder, the Company irrevocably authorizes the Indemnitee from time to time to retain counsel of Indemnitee's choice, at the expense of the Company as hereafter provided, to advise and represent the Indemnitee in connection with any such interpretation, enforcement or defense, including without limitation the initiation or defense of any litigation or other legal action, whether by or against the Company or any director, officer, stockholder or other person affiliated with the Company, in any jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any existing or prior attorney-client relationship between the Company and such counsel, the Company irrevocably consents to the Indemnitee's entering into an attorney-client relationship with such counsel, and in that connection the Company and the Indemnitee agree that a confidential relationship shall exist between the Indemnitee and such counsel. Without respect to whether the Indemnitee prevails, in whole or in part, in

any other provision hereof, if it should appear to the Indemnitee that the Company has failed to comply with any of its obligations under this Agreement or in the event that the Company or any other person takes or threatens to take any action to declare this Agreement void or unenforceable, or institutes any litigation or other action or proceeding designed to deny, or to recover from, the Indemnitee the benefits provided or intended to be provided to the Indemnitee hereunder, the Company irrevocably authorizes the Indemnitee from time to time to retain counsel of Indemnitee's choice, at the expense of the Company as hereafter provided, to advise and represent the Indemnitee in connection with any such interpretation, enforcement or defense, including without limitation the initiation or defense of any litigation or other legal action, whether by or against the Company or any director, officer, stockholder or other person affiliated with the Company, in any jurisdiction.

Without respect to whether the Indemnitee prevails, in whole or in part, in connection with any of the foregoing, the Company will pay and be solely financially responsible for any and all attorneys' and related fees and expenses incurred by the Indemnitee in connection with any of the foregoing. 18. CERTAIN INTERPRETIVE MATTERS. No provision of this Agreement will be interpreted in favor of, or against, either of the parties hereto by reason of the extent to which any such party or its counsel participated in the drafting thereof or by reason of the extent to which any such provision is inconsistent with any prior draft hereof or thereof.

(c) "EXPENSES" includes attorneys' and experts' fees, expenses and charges and all other costs, expenses and obligations paid or incurred in connection with investigating, defending, being a witness in or participating in (including on appeal), or preparing to defend, be a witness in or participate in, any Claim. (d) "INDEMNIFIABLE LOSSES" means any and all Expenses, damages, losses, liabilities, judgments, fines, penalties and amounts paid in settlement (including without limitation all interest, assessments and other charges paid or payable in connection with or in respect of any of the foregoing) (collectively, "Losses") relating to, resulting from or arising out of any act or failure to act by the Indemnitee, or his or her status as any person referred to in clause (i) of this sentence, (i) in his or her capacity as a director, officer, employee or agent of the Company, any of its Affiliates or any other entity as to which the indemnitee is or was serving at the request of the Company as a director, officer, employee, member, manager, trustee or agent of another corporation, limited liability company, partnership, joint venture, trust or other entity or enterprise, whether or not for profit and (ii) in respect of any business, transaction or other activity of any entity referred to in clause (i) of this sentence. 2. BASIC INDEMNIFICATION ARRANGEMENT. The Company will indemnify and hold harmless Indemnitee, to the fullest extent permitted by the laws of the State of Delaware in effect on the date hereof or as such laws may from time to time hereafter be amended to increase the scope of such permitted indemnification, against all Indemnifiable Losses relating to, resulting from or arising out of any Claim. The failure by Indemnitee to notify the Company of such Claim will not relieve the Company from any liability hereunder unless, and only to the extent that, the Company did not otherwise learn of the Claim and such failure results in forfeiture by the Company of substantial defenses, rights or insurance coverage. Except as provided in Section 17, however, Indemnitee will not be entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Agreement in connection with any Claim initiated by Indemnitee against the Company or any director or officer of the Company unless the Company has joined in or consented to the initiation of such Claim. If so requested by Indemnitee, the Company will advance within two business days of such request any and all Expenses to Indemnitee which Indemnitee determines reasonably likely to be payable, provided, however, that Indemnitee will return, without interest, any such advance which remains unspent at the final conclusion of the Claim to which the advance related. 3. INDEMNIFICATION FOR ADDITIONAL EXPENSES. Without limiting the generality or effect of the foregoing, the Company will indemnify Indemnitee against and, if requested by Indemnitee, will within two business days of such request advance to Indemnitee, any and all attorneys' fees and other Expenses paid or incurred by Indemnitee in connection with any Claim asserted or brought by Indemnitee for (i) indemnification or advance payment of Expenses by the Company under this Agreement or any other agreement or under any provision of the Company's Constituent Documents now or hereafter in effect relating to Claims for Indemnifiable Losses and/or (ii) recovery under any directors' and officers' liability insurance policies maintained by the Company, regardless of whether Indemnitee ultimately is determined to be entitled to such indemnification, advance expense payment or insurance recovery, as the case may be. -2-

4. PARTIAL INDEMNITY, ETC. If Indemnitee is entitled under any provision of this Agreement to indemnification by the Company for some or a portion of any Indemnifiable Loss but not for all of the total amount thereof, the Company will nevertheless indemnify Indemnitee for the portion thereof to which Indemnitee is entitled. Moreover, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, to the extent that Indemnitee has been successful on the merits or otherwise in defense of any or all Claims relating in whole or in part to an Indemnifiable Loss or in defense of any issue or matter therein, including without limitation dismissal without prejudice, Indemnitee will be indemnified against all Expenses incurred in connection therewith. In connection with any determination as to whether Indemnitee is entitled to be indemnified hereunder, there will be a presumption that Indemnitee is so entitled, which presumption the Company may overcome only by its adducing clear and convincing evidence to the contrary. 5. NO OTHER PRESUMPTION. For purposes of this Agreement, the termination of any Claim by judgment, order, settlement (whether with or without court approval) or conviction, or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent, will not create a presumption that Indemnitee did not meet any particular standard of conduct or have any particular belief or that a court has determined that indemnification is not permitted by applicable law. 6. NON-EXCLUSIVITY, ETC. The rights of Indemnitee hereunder will be in addition to any other rights

4. PARTIAL INDEMNITY, ETC. If Indemnitee is entitled under any provision of this Agreement to indemnification by the Company for some or a portion of any Indemnifiable Loss but not for all of the total amount thereof, the Company will nevertheless indemnify Indemnitee for the portion thereof to which Indemnitee is entitled. Moreover, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, to the extent that Indemnitee has been successful on the merits or otherwise in defense of any or all Claims relating in whole or in part to an Indemnifiable Loss or in defense of any issue or matter therein, including without limitation dismissal without prejudice, Indemnitee will be indemnified against all Expenses incurred in connection therewith. In connection with any determination as to whether Indemnitee is entitled to be indemnified hereunder, there will be a presumption that Indemnitee is so entitled, which presumption the Company may overcome only by its adducing clear and convincing evidence to the contrary. 5. NO OTHER PRESUMPTION. For purposes of this Agreement, the termination of any Claim by judgment, order, settlement (whether with or without court approval) or conviction, or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent, will not create a presumption that Indemnitee did not meet any particular standard of conduct or have any particular belief or that a court has determined that indemnification is not permitted by applicable law. 6. NON-EXCLUSIVITY, ETC. The rights of Indemnitee hereunder will be in addition to any other rights Indemnitee may have under the Constituent Documents, or the substantive laws of the Company's jurisdiction of incorporation, any other contract or otherwise (collectively, "Other Indemnity Provisions"); provided, however, that (i) to the extent that Indemnitee otherwise would have any greater right to indemnification under any Other Indemnity Provision, Indemnitee will be deemed to have such greater right hereunder and (ii) to the extent that any change is made to any Other Indemnity Provision which permits any greater right to indemnification than that provided under this Agreement as of the date hereof, Indemnitee will be deemed to have such greater right hereunder. The Company will not adopt any amendment to any of the Constituent Documents the effect of which would be to deny, diminish or encumber Indemnitee's right to indemnification under this Agreement or any Other Indemnity Provision. 7. LIABILITY INSURANCE AND FUNDING. To the extent the Company maintains an insurance policy or policies providing directors' and officers' liability insurance, Indemnitee will be covered by such policy or policies, in accordance with its or their terms, to the maximum extent of the coverage available for any officer of the Company. The Company may, but will not be required to, create a trust fund, grant a security interest or use other means, including without limitation a letter of credit, to ensure the payment of such amounts as may be necessary to satisfy its obligations to indemnify and advance expenses pursuant to this Agreement. 8. SUBROGATION. In the event of payment under this Agreement, the Company will be subrogated to the extent of such payment to all of the related rights of recovery of Indemnitee against other persons or entities (other than Indemnitee's successors). The Indemnitee will execute all papers reasonably required to evidence such rights or recovery (all of Indemnitee's reasonable Expenses, including attorneys' fees and charges, related thereto to be reimbursed by or, at the option of Indemnitee, advanced by the Company). 9. NO DUPLICATION OF PAYMENTS. The Company will not be liable under this Agreement to make any payment in connection with any Indemnifiable Loss made against -3-

Indemnitee to the extent Indemnitee has otherwise actually received payment (net of Expenses incurred in connection therewith) under any insurance policy, the Constituent Documents and Other Indemnity Provisions or otherwise of the amounts otherwise indemnifiable hereunder. 10. DEFENSE OF CLAIMS. The Company will be entitled to participate in the defense of any Claim or to assume the defense thereof, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnitee, provided that in the event that (i) the use of counsel chosen by the Company to represent Indemnitee would present such counsel with an actual or potential conflict, (ii) the named parties in any such Claim (including any impleaded parties) include both the Company and Indemnitee and Indemnitee shall conclude that there may be one or more legal defenses available to him or her that are different from or in addition to those available to the Company, or (iii) any such representation by the Company would be precluded under the applicable standards of professional conduct then prevailing, then Indemnitee will be entitled to retain separate counsel (but not more than one law firm plus, if

DEFENSE OF CLAIMS. The Company will be entitled to participate in the defense of any Claim or to assume the defense thereof, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnitee, provided that in the event that (i) the use of counsel chosen by the Company to represent Indemnitee would present such counsel with an actual or potential conflict, (ii) the named parties in any such Claim (including any impleaded parties) include both the Company and Indemnitee and Indemnitee shall conclude that there may be one or more legal defenses available to him or her that are different from or in addition to those available to the Company, or (iii) any such representation by the Company would be precluded under the applicable standards of professional conduct then prevailing, then Indemnitee will be entitled to retain separate counsel (but not more than one law firm plus, if applicable, local counsel in respect of any particular Claim) at the Company's expense. The Company will not, without the prior written consent of the Indemnitee, effect any settlement of any threatened or pending Claim which the Indemnitee is or could have been a party unless such settlement solely involves the payment of money and includes an unconditional release of the Indemnitee from all liability on any claims that are the subject matter of such Claim. 11. SUCCESSORS AND BINDING AGREEMENT. (a) The Company will require any successor (whether direct or indirect, by purchase, merger, consolidation, reorganization or otherwise) to all or substantially all of the business or assets of the Company, by agreement in form and substance satisfactory to Indemnitee and his or her counsel, expressly to assume and agree to perform this Agreement in the same manner and to the same extent the Company would be required to perform if no such succession had taken place. This Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Company and any successor to the Company, including without limitation any person acquiring directly or indirectly all or substantially all of the business or assets of the Company whether by purchase, merger, consolidation, reorganization or otherwise (and such successor will thereafter be deemed the "Company" for purposes of this Agreement), but will not otherwise be assignable or delegatable by the Company. (b) This Agreement will inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the Indemnitee's personal or legal representatives, executors, administrators, successors, heirs, distributees, legatees and other successors. (c) This Agreement is personal in nature and neither of the parties hereto will, without the consent of the other, assign or delegate this Agreement or any rights or obligations hereunder except as expressly provided in Sections 11(a) and 11(b). Without limiting the generality or effect of the foregoing, Indemnitee's right to receive payments hereunder will not be assignable, whether by pledge, creation of a security interest or otherwise, other than by a transfer by the Indemnitee's will or by the laws of descent and distribution, and, in the event of any attempted assignment or transfer contrary to this Section 11(c), the Company will have no liability to pay any amount so attempted to be assigned or transferred. 12. NOTICES. For all purposes of this Agreement, all communications, including without limitation notices, consents, requests or approvals, required or permitted to be given -4-

hereunder will be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given when hand delivered or dispatched by electronic facsimile transmission (with receipt thereof orally confirmed), or five business days after having been mailed by United States registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid or one business day after having been sent for next-day delivery by a nationally recognized overnight courier service, addressed to the Company (to the attention of the Secretary of the Company) and to the Indemnitee at the addresses shown on the signature page hereto, or to such other address as any party may have furnished to the other in writing and in accordance herewith, except that notices of changes of address will be effective only upon receipt. 13. GOVERNING LAW. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to the principles of conflict of laws of such State. Each party consents to non-exclusive jurisdiction of any Delaware state or federal court or any court in any other jurisdiction in which a Claim is commenced by a third

GOVERNING LAW. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to the principles of conflict of laws of such State. Each party consents to non-exclusive jurisdiction of any Delaware state or federal court or any court in any other jurisdiction in which a Claim is commenced by a third person for purposes of any action, suit or proceeding hereunder, waives any objection to venue therein or any defense based on forum non conveniens or similar theories and agrees that service of process may be effected in any such action, suit or proceeding by notice given in accordance with Section 12. 14. VALIDITY. If any provision of this Agreement or the application of any provision hereof to any person or circumstance is held invalid, unenforceable or otherwise illegal, the remainder of this Agreement and the application of such provision to any other person or circumstance will not be affected, and the provision so held to be invalid, unenforceable or otherwise illegal will be reformed to the extent, and only to the extent, necessary to make it enforceable, valid or legal. 15. MISCELLANEOUS. No provision of this Agreement may be waived, modified or discharged unless such waiver, modification or discharge is agreed to in writing signed by Indemnitee and the Company. No waiver by either party hereto at any time of any breach by the other party hereto or compliance with any condition or provision of this Agreement to be performed by such other party will be deemed a waiver of similar or dissimilar provisions or conditions at the same or at any prior or subsequent time. No agreements or representations, oral or otherwise, expressed or implied with respect to the subject matter hereof have been made by either party that are not set forth expressly in this Agreement. References to Sections are to references to Sections of this Agreement. 16. COUNTERPARTS. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which will be deemed to be an original but all of which together will constitute one and the same agreement. 17. LEGAL FEES AND EXPENSES. It is the intent of the Company that the Indemnitee not be required to incur legal fees and or other Expenses associated with the interpretation, enforcement or defense of Indemnitee's rights under this Agreement by litigation or otherwise because the cost and expense thereof would substantially detract from the benefits intended to be extended to the Indemnitee hereunder. Accordingly, without limiting the generality or effect of any other provision hereof, if it should appear to the Indemnitee that the Company has failed to comply with any of its obligations under this Agreement or in the event that the Company or any -5-

other person takes or threatens to take any action to declare this Agreement void or unenforceable, or institutes any litigation or other action or proceeding designed to deny, or to recover from, the Indemnitee the benefits provided or intended to be provided to the Indemnitee hereunder, the Company irrevocably authorizes the Indemnitee from time to time to retain counsel of Indemnitee's choice, at the expense of the Company as hereafter provided, to advise and represent the Indemnitee in connection with any such interpretation, enforcement or defense, including without limitation the initiation or defense of any litigation or other legal action, whether by or against the Company or any director, officer, stockholder or other person affiliated with the Company, in any jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any existing or prior attorney-client relationship between the Company and such counsel, the Company irrevocably consents to the Indemnitee's entering into an attorneyclient relationship with such counsel, and in that connection the Company and the Indemnitee agree that a confidential relationship shall exist between the Indemnitee and such counsel. Without respect to whether the Indemnitee prevails, in whole or in part, in connection with any of the foregoing, the Company will pay and be solely financially responsible for any and all attorneys' and related fees and expenses incurred by the Indemnitee in connection with any of the foregoing.

CERTAIN INTERPRETIVE MATTERS. No provision of this Agreement will be interpreted in favor of, or against, either of the parties hereto by reason of the extent to which any such party or its counsel participated in the drafting thereof or by reason of the extent to which any such provision is inconsistent with any prior draft hereof or thereof.

When the Trust shall become irrevocable as provided in Section 6.2, this trust agreement may not thereafter be amended in whole or part by the Employer, provided, however, that this trust agreement may nonetheless be amended by an instrument in writing, duly executed by the Employer, and delivered to the Trustee and all Participants and beneficiaries of deceased Participants only (a) with the express written consent of the Majority Participants on the date of such amendment, (b) as necessary to obtain a favorable ruling from the Internal Revenue Service with respect to the tax consequences of the establishment or settlement of the Trust as a grantor trust within the meaning of Section 671 of the Code, or (c) as necessary to prevent the Trust from being deemed an "investment company" as defined under the Investment Company Act or to ensure that the Trust qualifies for an exemption from the provisions of such act, provided, that the duties, powers and liabilities of the Trustee shall not be increased without the Trustee's written consent, and, provided further, that the amount or time of payment of any benefit hereunder to any Participant or beneficiary of a deceased Participant may not be reduced, altered or adversely affected without the written consent of the affected Participant or beneficiary. Section 6.2 Termination of Trust and Reversion of Assets. Following the occurrence of the Effective Time, the Trust shall be irrevocable; provided that the Trust shall nonetheless terminate upon the earlier of (a) the payment of all Obligations and amounts due Participants and beneficiaries of deceased Participants under the RSUs, as determined by the Recordkeeper, and (b) the date that there are no longer Trust assets in the Trust Fund.
