CIMAREX ENERGY CO.
DEFERRED COMPENSATION PLAN
Cimarex Energy Co., a Delaware corporation (the "Company"), established the Cimarex Energy Co. Deferred Compensation
Plan (the "Plan"), effective as of October 1, 2002. The Company has amended and restated the Plan and renamed the Plan the
Cimarex Energy Co. Supplemental Savings Plan, effective as of March 3, 2003.
The Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger dated as of February 23, 2002 (the "Merger Agreement")
among Helmerich & Payne, Inc. ("H&P"), Helmerich & Payne Exploration and Production Co., Mountain Acquisition Co., and
Key Production Company, Inc. ("Key"). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the parties agreed that the Company would assume
the Key Deferred Compensation Plan and extend participation in the Plan to certain identified executives of H&P. This Plan is
intended to assume the Key Deferred Compensation Plan.
The Plan is intended to provide a mechanism whereby certain of the highly compensated and select management
employees of the Company may defer compensation and have such amounts, together with deemed earnings, paid out upon the
participant's retirement, death, disability or other termination of service with the Company. In addition, the Company intends
that this Plan shall provide the eligible employees with deferred compensation benefits in addition to the benefits under the
Cimarex Energy Co. 401(k) Plan (the "401(k) Plan") in cases where benefits under the 401(k) Plan may be limited by applicable
provisions of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"). The Company intends that the Plan shall be an
"unfunded" plan for purposes of the Code and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended ("ERISA").
