Mr. Lavin and Mr. Rapp were not NEOs in 2007.
 
 2
 
There was no Lump Sum Discretionary Cash Bonus awarded to NEOs for 2009 performance.

The following Restricted Stock Units (RSUs) were granted to NEOs on March 2, 2009:  Mr. Owens — 20,152; Mr. Oberhelman — 7,335; Mr. Lavin — 6,561; Mr. Levenick — 6,561; Mr. Rapp — 6,561; Mr. Vittecoq — 6,925; Mr. Wunning — 6,561; and Mr. Burritt — 4,449.  The amounts included in this column represent the aggregate grant date fair market value for RSUs and restricted stock granted in the years shown calculated in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board Standards Codification Topic 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation (FASB ASC Topic 718).  In general, the aggregate grant date fair market value is the amount of the total expense the Company expects to report in its financial reporting over the equity award’s vesting schedule.  The amounts reported reflect the total accounting expense and do not reflect the actual value that will be realized by the NEO.  Assumptions made in the calculation of these amounts are included in Note 2 “Stock based compensation” to the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K (Form 10-K) filed with the SEC on February 19, 2010.

The following SARs were granted to NEOs on March 2, 2009:  Mr. Owens — 504,180; Mr. Oberhelman — 166,252; Mr. Lavin — 148,722; Mr. Levenick — 148,722; Mr. Rapp — 148,722; Mr. Vittecoq — 156,962; Mr. Wunning — 148,722; and Mr. Burritt — 71,176.  The amounts included in this column represent the aggregate grant date fair market value for SARs granted in the years shown in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718.  In general, the aggregate grant date fair market value is the amount of the total expense the Company expects to report in its financial reporting over the equity award’s vesting schedule.  The amounts reported reflect the total accounting expense and do not reflect the actual value that will be realized by the NEO.  Assumptions made in the calculation of these amounts are included in Note 2 “Stock based compensation” to the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009, included in  the Company’s Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 19, 2010.

The amounts in this column reflect the cash payments made to NEOs under the  LTCPP with respect to performance over a three-year plan cycle from 2007 through 2009.  The 2009 ESTIP or STIP did not trigger a payout, as the performance metrics of the plan(s) were not achieved.
 
6
 
Because NEOs do not receive “preferred” or “above market” earning on compensation deferred into SDCP, SEIP and/or DEIP, the amount shown represents only the change between the actuarial present value of each officer’s total accumulated pension benefit between December 31, 2008 and December 31, 2009.   The amount assumes the pension benefit is payable at each NEO’s earliest unreduced retirement age based upon the officer’s current compensation.
 
7
 
All Other Compensation for 2009 consists of the following items detailed in a separate table appearing on page 58:  Matching contributions to the Company’s 401(k) plan; matching contributions to SDCP/EIP; corporate aircraft usage; home security; life insurance premiums for Mr. Owens under the Directors’ Charitable Award Program; and ISE allowances.
 
8
 
All amounts reported for Mr. Vittecoq were paid in Swiss Francs and have been converted to U.S. dollars using the exchange rate in effect on December 31, 2009 (1 Swiss Franc = .96340 US Dollar).  Mr. Vittecoq's 2009 Swiss Franc base salary has remained constant from 2008's level at CHF 929,994.  The conversion of Swiss Franc to the U.S. dollar amount inflates Mr. Vittecoq's reported base salary, as the U.S. dollar has depreciated against the Swiss Franc.
