As compensation for the Executives services during the Term, the Company shall pay the Executive an annual base salary at the rate of TWO HUNDRED TEN THOUSAND Dollars ($210,000) for the first full year and shall increase by $60,000 for each of the remaining two years, payable in accordance with the Companys reasonable policies, procedures, and practices, as they may exist from time to time. Prior to the end of each year during the Term, the Compensation Committee of the Company shall undertake an evaluation of the services of the Executive during the year then ended in accordance with the Companys compensation program at the date hereof (the Program). The Company shall consider the performance of the Executive, his contribution to the success of the Company and entities under common control with the Company (collectively, Affiliates), and other factors and shall fix an annual base salary to be paid to the Executive during the ensuing year.
   
4.2
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company may change the Program from time to time or institute a successor to the Program, but the Executives annual base salary shall in no event be less than his annual base salary in effect on the date of change, adjusted regularly to reflect increases in the cost of living and comparable compensation for like positions.
   
4.3
The executive shall participate in the Company incentive compensation programs in accordance with the following subparagraphs (i) and (ii):
 
(i)  
Incentive Plan - The executive shall be covered by the cash bonus plan and shall be afforded the opportunity thereunder to receive a target award of 25% of annual base salary payable in cash and a target award of 25% of annual base salary payable in Company Common Stock or options below, to be awarded upon the achievement of reasonable performance goals; provided that the Company may from time to time change the Program or institute a successor to the Program, so long as the Executive continues to be eligible to receive bonus awards of percentages of annual base salary in amounts at least equal to those specified as in effect on the date hereof.

(ii)  
Stock Option Plan - Executive shall be entitled to participate in the Companys stock option plan when implemented. In accordance with this plan the Board may from time to time, but without any obligation to do so, grant stock options to the Executive upon such terms and conditions as the Board shall determine in its sole discretion. If the Company no longer has a class of stock publicly-traded by reason of a Change in Control of the Company, as defined in Section 6.3, the Companys obligation under this Section 4.3 will be satisfied through options granted by the issuer with public stock then in control of the Company.

If there should be a dispute about the Executives disability, disability shall be determined by the Board of Directors of the Company based upon a report from a physician, reasonably acceptable to the Executive, who shall have examined the Executive. If the Executive claims disability, the Executive agrees to submit to a physical examination at any reasonable time or times by a qualified physician designated by the Chairman of Board of the Company and reasonably acceptable to the Executive.
