Executive shall not be paid for accrued but unused vacation or paid time off upon termination of Executive’ s employment for any reason, unless otherwise required by law.

(e)        Other Benefits. Executive shall be entitled to participate in such life insurance, medical, dental disability, pension and retirement plans and other programs as may be approved from time to time by the Company for the benefit of its executives, except any such plan or program with respect to which Executive voluntarily executes a legally effective waiver.

A directors’ and officers’ liability insurance policy (or policies) shall be kept in place, during Executive’s employment and thereafter for the duration of any period in which a civil, equitable, criminal or administrative proceeding may be brought against the Executive, providing coverage to the Executive that is no less favorable to the Executive in any respect (including with respect to scope, exclusions, amounts, and deductibles) than the coverage then being provided with respect to periods after the Effective Date to any other present or former senior executive or director of the Company.
