Each Senior Vice President charged with the management of an operating group will participate in an incentive

shares used to calculate the range were 52,482,000 shares. If the actual average shares outstanding for 1999 is
more or less, actual earnings per share will be adjusted to 52,482,000 shares with a corresponding plus or minus
