Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. From time to time, we also provide forward-looking statements in other materials we release to the public, as well as oral forward-looking statements. Such statements give our expectations or forecasts of future events; they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts.
We have tried, wherever possible, to identify such statements by using words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “will,” “target,” “seek,” “forecast” and similar expressions. In particular, these include statements relating to future actions, business plans, objects and prospects, future operating or financial performance or results of current and anticipated services, acquisitions and the performance of companies we have acquired, sales efforts, expenses, interest rates, and the outcome of contingencies, such as financial results.
We cannot guarantee that any forward-looking statement will be realized. Forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations and assumptions regarding our business, the economy and other future conditions. Should known or unknown risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove inaccurate, actual results could differ materially from past results and those anticipated, estimated or projected. We caution you, therefore, against relying on any of these forward-looking statements. They are neither statements of historical fact nor guarantees or assurances of future performance. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, those discussed in our Annual Report, and in particular, the risks discussed under the heading “Risk Factors” in Part I, Item 1A of our Annual Report, Part II of this 10-Q and those discussed in other documents we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Any forward-looking statements made by us in this Report on Form 10-Q speak only as of the date on which they are made. Factors or events that could cause actual results to differ may emerge from time to time and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. We undertake no obligation to publicly update forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by law. You are advised, however, to consult any further disclosures we make on related subjects in our 10-K and 8-K reports to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
For the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2010 and 2009
(unaudited)
1. Basis of Presentation
The financial information in this report has not been audited, but in the opinion of management all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary to present fairly such information have been included. The operating results for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full year. The financial statements included herein should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2009, which we refer to as our Annual Report.
We provide a variety of cost containment, coordination of benefits and program integrity services for government-sponsored health and human services programs. These services are designed to help our clients recover amounts due from liable third parties, reduce costs, ensure regulatory compliance, and increase operational efficiencies. In December 2009, with the acquisition of Verify Solutions, we moved into the employer-based market with valuable new services that ensure that dependents covered by employees are eligible to receive healthcare benefits. In June 2010, we acquired Allied Management Group — Special Investigation Unit, or AMG-SIU, which provides fraud, waste, and abuse prevention and detection solutions for healthcare payors. In August 2010, we acquired Chapman Kelly, Inc., which provides claims audit and beneficiary eligibility audit services to employers and managed care organizations.
These consolidated financial statements include our accounts and transactions of our wholly owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
We are managed and operated as one business, with a single management team that reports to the Chief Executive Officer. We do not operate separate lines of business with respect to any of our product lines. Accordingly, we do not prepare discrete financial information with respect to separate product lines or location and do not have separately reportable segments.
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, or GAAP, requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
We consider all highly liquid instruments with an original maturity of 90 days or less to be cash equivalents. Cash equivalents consist of deposits that are readily convertible into cash.
The Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands the related disclosure requirements. The guidance applies under other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurements and indicates, among other things, that a fair value measurement assumes that the transaction to sell an asset or transfer a liability occurs in the principal market for the asset or liability or, in the absence of a principal market, the most advantageous market for the asset or liability. ASC Topic 820 defines fair value based upon an exit price model.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
For the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2010 and 2009
(unaudited)
Our financial instruments are categorized into a three-level fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three broad levels. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3). If the inputs used to measure fair value fall within different levels of the hierarchy, the category level is based on the lowest priority level input that is significant to the fair value measurement of the instrument. Financial assets recorded at fair value on our consolidated balance sheets are categorized as follows:
    Level 1: Observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets;
 
    Level 2: Inputs, other than the quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly; and
 
    Level 3: Unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.
Our policy is to limit the amount of credit exposure to any one financial institution and place investments with financial institutions evaluated as being creditworthy, or in short-term money market funds which are exposed to minimal interest rate and credit risk. We maintain our cash primarily in investment accounts within large financial institutions. Currently, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation insures these balances up to $250,000 per bank account. We have not experienced any losses on our bank deposits and we believe these deposits do not expose us to any significant credit risk.
We grant credit, generally without collateral, to our clients, which are primarily in the health care market. Consequently, we are subject to potential credit risk related to changes in economic conditions within that market. However, we believe that our billing and collection policies are adequate to minimize the potential credit risk.
We evaluate the recoverability of goodwill and long-lived assets either annually or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that an asset’s carrying amount may not be recoverable. Such circumstances could include, but are not limited to (i) a significant decrease in the market value of an asset, (ii) a significant adverse change in the extent or manner in which an asset is used, or (iii) an accumulation of costs significantly in excess of the amount originally expected for the acquisition of an asset. We measure the carrying amount of the asset against the estimated undiscounted future cash flows associated with it. If the sum of the expected future net cash flows is less than the carrying value of the asset being evaluated, an impairment charge would be recognized. The impairment charge would be calculated as the amount by which the carrying value of the asset exceeds its fair value. The determination of fair value is based on quoted market prices, if available. If quoted market prices are not available, the estimate of fair value is based on various valuation techniques, including the discounted value of estimated future cash flows. We did not recognize any impairment charges related to our long-lived assets, property and equipment, goodwill or intangible assets, during either the three or nine months ended September 30, 2010, or the three or nine months ended September 30, 2009 as management believes that carrying amounts were not impaired.
The carrying amounts for our cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate fair value due to their short-term nature.
We evaluated all subsequent events through the date and time our financial statements were issued. See Note 9, for stock based compensation awards approved on September 15, 2010 and granted on October 1, 2010.
In January 2010, the FASB issued guidance that amends ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures and that requires reporting entities to make new disclosures about recurring or nonrecurring fair-value measurements including significant transfers into and out of Level 1 and Level 2 fair-value measurements and information about purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements on a gross basis in the reconciliation of Level 3 fair-value measurements. This guidance also clarifies existing fair-value measurement disclosure guidance about the level of disaggregation, inputs, and valuation techniques. Except for the detailed Level 3 roll forward disclosures, the guidance is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2009 and did not have an impact on our consolidated interim financial statement.

In October 2009, the FASB issued guidance which amends Topic 605, Revenue Recognition, for separating consideration in multiple-deliverable revenue arrangements. The guidance establishes a selling price hierarchy for determining the selling price of each specific deliverable, which includes vendor-specific objective evidence, or VSOE, if available, third party evidence if VSOE is not available or estimated selling price if neither VSOE nor third party evidence is available. The guidance also eliminates the residual method for allocating revenue between the elements of an arrangement and requires that arrangement consideration be allocated at the inception of the arrangement to all deliverables using the relative selling price method, which allocates any discount in the arrangement proportionally to each deliverable on the basis of each deliverable’s selling price. This guidance expands the disclosure requirements regarding a vendor’s multiple-deliverable revenue arrangements and is effective prospectively for revenue arrangements entered into or materially modified in fiscal years beginning on or after June 15, 2010, with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of this guidance on our consolidated financial statements.
2. Acquisitions
Chapman Kelly, Inc.
In August 2010, we acquired the net assets of Chapman Kelly, Inc., or Chapman Kelly for $13.0 million in cash. This acquisition was accounted for under the acquisition method of accounting. Chapman Kelly, which is based in Jeffersonville, Indiana, provides dependent eligibility audits to large, self-insured employers, as well as plan and claims audits to both employers and managed care organizations.
As a result of the acquisition occurring late in the current quarter, we have not yet completed a valuation of the assets and liabilities acquired, from Chapman Kelly. Accordingly, we have not completed the purchase price allocation, and therefore, the aggregate purchase price allocation of this acquisition presented below is subject to adjustments:
The preliminary allocation of the aggregate purchase price of the Chapman Kelly acquisition is estimated to be as follows (in thousands):
         
Goodwill
  $ 9,983  
Net assets acquired
    1,018  
Identifiable intangible assets
    2,000  
       
Total purchase price
  $ 13,001  
       
Identifiable intangible assets principally include covenants not to compete and Chapman Kelly’s trade name.
Allied Management Group — Special Investigation Unit
On June 30, 2010, we purchased all of the issued and outstanding common stock of AMG-SIU, a Santa Ana, California-based company specializing in fraud, waste, and abuse prevention and detection solutions for healthcare payors, which further strengthens our ability to service this segment of the market.
The purchase price for AMG-SIU was valued at $26.0 million, and consisted of a $13.0 million upfront payment and future contingent payments estimated and recognized as of the acquisition date at $13.0 million. These payments are contingent upon AMG-SIU’s financial performance for each of the twelve month periods ending June 30, 2011 and June 30, 2012 as measured by AMG-SIU’s EBITDA, (earnings before income taxes, depreciation and amortization) for those periods. The contingent payments are not subject to any cap. Any contingent payments owed for the periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2012 shall be payable by September 30, 2011 and 2012. The undiscounted contingent payments are estimated to be $14.5 million.
The fair value of the contingent consideration recognized on the acquisition date of June 30, 2010 was estimated by applying the income approach. That measure is based on significant inputs not observable in the market, which ASC 820 refers to as Level 3 inputs.
The acquisition of AMG-SIU was accounted for under the acquisition method of accounting.

We are currently in the process of completing a valuation of the assets and liabilities acquired from AMG-SIU, including the fair value of the contingent payments discussed above. Accordingly, we have not completed the purchase price allocation, and therefore, the aggregate purchase price allocation of this acquisition presented below is subject to adjustments.
The preliminary allocation of the aggregate purchase price of the AMG-SIU acquisition is estimated as follows (in thousands):
         
Goodwill
  $ 19,792

Verify Solutions, LLC
In December 2009, we acquired the assets of Verify Solutions, LLC, or Verify Solutions, an Alpharetta, Georgia-based company specializing in dependent eligibility audit services for employer-sponsored healthcare plans. With this acquisition, we moved into the employer-based market, providing services which include Dependent Eligibility Reviews for large and mid-market employers. The acquisition of Verify Solutions was accounted for under the acquisition method of accounting.
The purchase price for Verify Solutions was $8.1 million, with additional future payments contingent upon Verify Solutions’ achievement of financial performance milestones. The additional future payments of up to $5.5 million ($2.7 million and $2.8 million for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2011, respectively) will be recorded as compensation expense in the year in which the milestones are expected to be achieved. As of September 30, 2010, no compensation expense was recorded as the 2010 performance milestones are not expected to be reached.
The allocation of the purchase price for Verify Solutions was based upon the fair value estimate of its assets and liabilities. The acquisition of Verify Solutions was based on management’s consideration of past and expected future performance as well as the potential strategic fit with our long-term goals. The expected long-term growth, market position and expected synergies to be generated by Verify Solutions were the primary factors that gave rise to an acquisition price that resulted in the recognition of identifiable intangible assets.

IntegriGuard LLC
In September 2009, we acquired the net assets of IntegriGuard LLC, or IntegriGuard, for $5.1 million in cash. This acquisition was accounted for under the acquisition method of accounting. IntegriGuard, which is based in Omaha, Nebraska, provides services for the prevention and detection of fraud, waste and abuse in the healthcare system, and operates as our wholly owned subsidiary. With this acquisition, we further expanded our portfolio of program integrity service offerings for government healthcare programs, particularly in the Medicare and Medicaid programs.
The allocation of the purchase price for IntegriGuard was based upon the fair value estimate of its assets and liabilities. The acquisition of IntegriGuard was based on management’s consideration of past and expected future performance as well as the potential strategic fit with our long-term goals.

As part of the IntegriGuard acquisition, we entered into a 12 month Intercompany Services Agreement (ISA) with the seller, Lumetra, to allow each party to perform contractual transition services. Services performed under the ISA were billed at pre-determined rates that are specified in the ISA. The ISA with Lumetra expired in September 2010. We did not incur any expense for the ISA during the three month period ended September 30, 2010. For the nine month period ending September 30, 2010 we incurred expenses of $0.2 million for services rendered by Lumetra under the ISA.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009, amortization expense related to intangible assets amounted to $4.0 million and $3.2 million respectively.
5. Income Taxes
Our effective tax rate decreased to 39.5% for the three months ended September 30, 2010 from 40.8% for the three months ended September 30, 2009, primarily due to a change in state apportionments. The principal difference between the statutory rate and our effective rate is state taxes.
Our effective tax rate decreased to 39.9% for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 from 40.9% for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, primarily due to a change in state apportionments. The principal difference between the statutory rate and our effective rate is state taxes.
We file income tax returns with the U.S. federal government and various state jurisdictions. We are no longer subject to U.S. federal income tax examinations for years before 2006. Our 2008 federal tax return is currently being examined by the Internal Revenue Service. We operate in a number of state and local jurisdictions, most of which have never audited our records. Accordingly, we are subject to state and local income tax examinations based upon the various statutes of limitations in each jurisdiction.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009, we recorded a tax benefit of $8.3 million and $7.6 million, respectively, related to the utilization of the income tax benefit from stock transactions by reducing income tax payable and crediting capital.
At September 30, 2010 and 2009, we had approximately $1.3 million and $0.5 million of net unrecognized tax benefits, respectively, for which there is uncertainty about the allocation and apportionment impacting state taxable income. We have recognized interest accrued related to unrecognized tax benefits in interest expense and penalties in tax expense. The accrued liabilities related to uncertain tax positions were $0.5 million and $0.2 million at September 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively.

6. Debt
We have a credit agreement with several banks and other financial institutions, with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (JPMCB) as administrative agent, which we refer to as the Credit Agreement. The Credit Agreement, which expires in September 2011, provided for a term loan of $40 million, which we refer to as the Term Loan, and revolving credit loans of up to $25 million, which we refer to as the Revolving Loan. During the year ended December 31, 2009, we repaid in full the $17.3 million of debt outstanding under the Term Loan. During 2010, there have been no borrowings under the Revolving Loan; however, as a result of the Letter of Credit for $4.6 million the amount available under the Revolving Loan as of September 30, 2010 is $20.4 million.
We secured the Term and Revolving Loans with the grant of a security interest, covering our assets and subsidiaries, in favor of the lenders. Interest on borrowings under the Credit Agreement is calculated, at our option, at either (i) LIBOR, including statutory reserves, plus a variable margin based on our leverage ratio, or (ii) the higher of (a) the prime lended rate of JPMCB, and (b) the Federal Funds Effective Rate plus 0.50%, in each case plus a variable margin based on our leverage ratio. In connection with the Revolving Loan, we agreed to pay a commitment fee on the unused portion of the Revolving Loan, payable quarterly in arrears, at a variable rate based on our leverage ratio.
Commitments under the Credit Agreement will be reduced and borrowings are required to be repaid with the net proceeds of, among other things, sales or issuances of equity (excluding equity issued under employee benefit plans and equity issued to sellers as consideration in acquisitions), sales of assets and any incurrence of indebtedness by us, subject, in each case, to limited exceptions. Our obligations under the Credit Agreement may be accelerated upon the occurrence of an event of default under the Credit Agreement, which encompasses customary events of default including, without limitation, payment defaults, defaults in the performance of affirmative and negative covenants, the inaccuracy of representations or warranties, bankruptcy and insolvency related defaults, defaults relating to such matters as ERISA, uninsured judgments and the failure to pay certain indebtedness and a change of control default.
In addition, the Credit Agreement contains affirmative, negative and financial covenants customary for financings of this type. The negative covenants include restrictions on indebtedness, liens, fundamental changes, dispositions of property, investments, dividends and other restricted payments. The financial covenants include a consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio, as defined, of not less than 1.75 to 1.0 and a consolidated leverage ratio, as defined, not to exceed 3.0 to 1.0. We are currently in full compliance with these covenants.
On March 30, 2010, we entered into an amendment to the Credit Agreement, which we refer to as the First Amendment, to increase the total amount we could spend on acquisitions in any one year from $10.0 million to $30.0 million. In connection with entering into the First Amendment, the lenders agreed to waive any default that may have occurred and be continuing as a result of the Verify Solutions acquisition, which closed on December 31, 2009, as a result of which we exceeded the aggregate acquisition amount in 2009. This default did not have a material impact on our 2009 financial statements since we had no outstanding debt and only a Letter of Credit outstanding.
7. Earnings Per Share
Basic income per share is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted income per share is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares and dilutive common share equivalents outstanding during the period. Our common share equivalents consist of stock options and restricted stock awards and units.

The fair value of each option grant was estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. Expected volatilities are calculated based on the historical volatility of the stock. Management monitors share option exercise and employee termination patterns to estimate forfeiture rates within the valuation model. Separate groups of employees that have similar historical exercise behavior are considered separately for valuation purposes. The expected holding period of options represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding. The risk-free interest rate for periods within the contractual life of the option is based on the interest rate of a 5-year U.S. Treasury Note in effect on the date of the grant.
As of September 30, 2010, there was approximately $3.7 million of total unrecognized compensation expense related to stock options outstanding. That expense is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 1.1 years. No compensation expense related to stock options was capitalized for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively.
The total intrinsic value of options exercised during the three months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 was $10.2 million and $4.5 million, respectively. The total intrinsic value of options exercised during the nine month period ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 was $24.4 million and $21.2 million, respectively.
Total compensation expense charged against income relating to stock options was $1.6 million and $1.4 million for the three month periods ended September 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively. These expenses were categorized as selling, general and administration costs for each of those periods. The total income tax benefit recognized in the income statement for share-based arrangements was $0.6 million for each of the three months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009.
Total compensation expense related to stock options charged against income was $4.5 million and $4.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively. These expenses were categorized as selling, general and administration costs for each of those periods. The total income tax benefit recognized in the income statement for share-based arrangements was $1.8 million and $1.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively.
We estimated the fair value of options granted using a Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following assumptions:

Restricted Stock Units
In October 2009, certain employees received restricted stock units under the Third Amended and Restated 2006 Stock Plan, which we refer to as our 2006 Plan. The fair value of restricted stock units is estimated based on the closing sale price of our common stock on the NASDAQ Global Select Market on the date of issuance. The total number of restricted stock units expected to vest is adjusted by estimated forfeiture rates. As of September 30, 2010, there was approximately $0.7 million of unamortized compensation expense related to restricted stock units which is expected to be recognized over the remaining weighted-average vesting period of 2.25 years. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010, share-based compensation expense related to restricted stock units was $0.1 million and $0.2 million, respectively. The total intrinsic value of restricted stock units outstanding at September 30, 2010 was $0.5 million based on our closing sale price on that date.
A summary of the status of our restricted stock units as of September 30, 2010 and of changes in restricted stock units outstanding under the 2006 Plan for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 is as follows:

In February 2009, our executive officers were granted restricted stock awards under the 2006 Plan. The vesting of restricted stock awards is subject to the executive officers’ continued employment with us. Recipients of these restricted stock awards are not required to provide us with any consideration other than rendering service. Holders of restricted stock awards are permitted to vote and to receive dividends on shares of restricted stock.
The stock-based compensation expense for restricted stock awards is determined based on the closing market price of our common stock on the grant date of the awards applied to the total number of awards that are anticipated to fully vest. At September 30, 2010, there was unrecognized stock-based compensation expense of $2.7 million related to restricted stock awards, which is expected to be recognized over the weighted-average period of 3.4 years for these restricted stock awards. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009, share-based compensation expense related to restricted stock awards was $0.2 million and $0.6 million, respectively. The total intrinsic value of restricted stock awards outstanding at September 30, 2010 was $3.6 million based on our closing sale price on that date.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
Critical Accounting Policies
Revenue Recognition. A majority of our contracts are contingency fee based. We recognize revenue on contingency fee based contracts when third party payors remit payment to our clients and, consequently, the contingency is deemed to have been satisfied. For certain contracts, this may result in revenue being recognized in irregular increments. We recognize revenue on our general service agreements as work is performed and amounts are earned. We consider amounts to be earned once evidence of an arrangement has been obtained, services are delivered, fees are fixed or determinable and collectability is reasonably assured. Our contracts with the federal government generally are cost-plus or time and material based. Revenue on cost-plus contracts is recognized based on costs incurred plus an estimate of the negotiated fee earned. Revenue on time and materials contracts is recognized based on hours worked and expenses incurred.
Where contracts have multiple deliverables, we evaluate these deliverables at the inception of each contract and as each item is delivered. As part of this evaluation, we consider whether (i) a delivered item has value to a client on a stand-alone basis; (ii) there is objective and reliable evidence of the fair market value of the undelivered items; and (iii) the delivery of the undelivered items is considered probable and substantially within our control, if a general right of return exists. Where deliverables, or groups of deliverables, have all three of these characteristics, we treat each deliverable item as a separate unit of accounting and apply the relevant revenue recognition guidance to each deliverable. Arrangements, including implementation and transaction related revenue, are accounted for as a single unit of accounting. Since implementation services do not carry a standalone value, the revenue relating to these services is recognized over the term of the client contract to which it relates.
Expense Classifications: Cost of services in the statement of income is presented in the seven categories set forth below. Each category of cost excludes costs relating to selling, general and administrative functions which are presented separately as a component of total operating expenses. All revenue and expenses are reported under one operating segment. A description of the primary costs included in each category is provided below:
    Compensation : Salary, benefit, bonus and stock based compensation costs.
    Data processing : Hardware, software and data communication costs.
    Occupancy : Rent, utilities, depreciation, office equipment, repair and maintenance costs.
    Direct project costs : Variable costs incurred that are directly associated with specific revenue generating projects.
    Other operating costs : Professional fees, temporary staffing, travel and entertainment, insurance, and local and property tax costs.
    Amortization of intangibles : Amortization cost of acquisition-related software and intangible assets.
    Selling, general and administrative : Costs related to general management, marketing and administrative activities.
Since the date of the Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2009, there have been no material changes to our critical accounting policies.

Overview
We provide a variety of cost containment, coordination of benefits and program integrity services for government-sponsored health and human services programs. These services are designed to help our clients recover amounts due from liable third parties, reduce costs, ensure regulatory compliance and increase operational efficiencies.
Our clients are state Medicaid agencies, government-sponsored managed care organizations, Pharmacy Benefit Managers, child support agencies, Veterans Health Administration, Medicare and Medicaid Services, commercial plans, employer-sponsored health care plans and other healthcare payors. We help these payors contain healthcare costs by identifying third party insurance coverage and recovering expenditures that were the responsibility of the third party, or that were paid in error. In December 2009, with the acquisition of Verify Solutions, we moved into the employer-based market with valuable new services that ensure that dependents covered by employees are eligible to receive healthcare benefits.
Our principal source of funds has been operations and we believe that we have sufficient cash and cash equivalents to support our operating needs through at least the next twelve months. At September 30, 2010, we had cash and cash equivalents of $66.0 million, and net working capital of $121.8 million. We have a credit agreement with several banks and other financial institutions with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (JPMCB), as administrative agent, which we refer to as the Credit Agreement. The Credit Agreement provided for a term loan of $40 million, which we refer to as the Term Loan, and revolving credit loans of up to $25 million, which we refer to as the Revolving Loan. During the year ended December 31, 2009, we repaid in full the $17.3 million of debt outstanding under the Term Loan; however, we continue to have an irrevocable standby Letter of Credit for $4.6 million against the Revolving Loan, which we refer to as the Letter of Credit, as required by a contractual arrangement with a client. As a result of the letter of credit of $4.6 million, the amount available under the Revolving Loan as of September 30, 2010 is $20.4 million. Although we expect that operating cash flows will continue to be a primary source of liquidity for our operating needs, we also have the remaining balance of the Revolving Loan available for future cash flow needs, if necessary.
Our revenue, most of which is derived from contingency fees, has increased at an average compounded rate of approximately 35.4% per year for the last five years. Our growth has been attributable to our expansion of existing product offerings and acquisitions, as well as an overall increase in Medicaid costs, which has historically averaged approximately 8% annually. In addition, state governments have increased their use of vendors for the coordination of benefits and other cost containment functions, and we have been able to increase our revenue through these initiatives. Leveraging our work on behalf of state Medicaid fee-for-service programs, we have penetrated the Medicaid managed care market, into which more Medicaid lives are being shifted. As of September 30, 2010, we served the District of Columbia and 40 state Medicaid programs, and 123 Medicaid health plans under an aggregate of 56 contracts.
To date, we have grown our business through the internal development of new services and through acquisitions of businesses whose core services strengthen our overall mission to help our clients control healthcare costs. Most recently, we acquired Chapman Kelly, Inc., a leading provider of claims audit and beneficiary eligibility audit services to employers and managed care organizations. We are continuously evaluating opportunities that will enable us to expand the breadth of the services we provide and will consider acquisition opportunities that enable us to continue to grow our business to address the increasing needs of the healthcare industry in the post-healthcare reform era.

In March 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) was signed into law. According to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), under the PPACA, approximately an additional 18 million lives will be added to Medicaid, which will more than double Medicaid enrollment. In addition, the PPACA includes a number of provisions for combating fraud and abuse throughout the healthcare system, allows for significant increases in funding for program integrity initiatives and provides for the creation of insurance exchanges. The PPACA largely preserves and builds upon the employer-sponsored health coverage model. However, under the PPACA, employers are faced with new compliance guidelines, coverage requirements and mandates that will challenge their systems and processes and will likely raise their healthcare costs. We plan to build on our existing partnerships with states, the federal government, and health plans to provide services that address the program integrity, fraud and abuse initiatives created by the PPACA and to assist these clients in meeting the requirements of the PPACA. In addition, we believe that we are well-positioned to work with employers to address the new requirements of the PPACA and plan to work with our clients to develop collaborations that support the overarching goal of controlling healthcare costs.

Organic growth in existing client accounts provided $7.4 million of the increase in revenue, together with changes in the yield and scope of these projects, and differences in the timing of when client projects were completed in the current year compared to the prior year. Revenue generated by our 2009 acquisitions, IntegriGuard and Verify Solutions, was $7.0 million. Revenue generated by our 2010 acquisitions, AMG-SIU and Chapman Kelly, was $0.8 million. Revenue generated by approximately 20 new clients for whom there was no revenue in the same quarter of the prior year was $6.2 million. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in revenue of $0.6 million as a result of expired contracts.
Compensation expense as a percentage of revenue was 35.0% for the three months ended September 30, 2010 compared to 32.4% for the three months ended September 30, 2009.

Operating income for the three months ended September 30, 2010 was $18.3 million, an increase of $3.9 million or 27.3%, compared to $14.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2009. This increase was primarily the result of increased revenue, which was partially offset by incremental operating costs incurred during the quarter ended September 30, 2010.
Interest expense was $24,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2010 compared to $254,000 for the same quarter for the prior year. In the current period, interest expense represents commitment fees for our Credit Agreement and issuance fees for our Letter of Credit, as our loan was repaid in October 2009. In the prior period, interest expense was attributable to borrowings under the Term Loan, amortization of deferred financing costs, commitment fees for our Credit Agreement and issuance fees for our Letter of Credit. Interest income was $32,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2010 compared to interest income of $46,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2009, principally due to lower interest rates partially offset by higher cash balances. Net other expense relating to our building in Irving, Texas was $31,000. We did not incur any real estate expense in the prior year period.
We recorded income tax expense of $7.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 compared to income tax expense of $5.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2009, an increase of $1.4 million. Our effective tax rate decreased to 39.5% for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 from 40.8% for the quarter ended September 30, 2009 primarily due to a change in state apportionments. The principal difference between the statutory rate and our effective rate is state taxes.
Net income of $11.0 million in the current quarter represents an increase of $2.6 million, or 31.8%, compared to net income of $8.4 million in the same quarter for the prior year.

The $1.0 million increase compared to last year resulted from our acquisitions of IntegriGuard, Verify Solutions, AMG-SIU and Chapman Kelly. There was no amortization in the prior year period related to these acquisitions.
Selling, general, and administrative expense as a percentage of revenue was 12.0% for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 compared to 12.4% for the nine months ended September 30, 2009. Selling, general, and administrative expense for the current period was $25.9 million, a $5.7 million or 28.3% increase compared to the same period for the prior year expense of $20.2 million. Compensation expense increased by $3.5 million due to a $1.5 million increase in salary expense, a $0.7 million increase in variable compensation, a $0.9 million increase in stock compensation expense, and a $0.4 million increase in benefits expenses. During the period ended September 30, 2010, we averaged 92 corporate employees, a 24.3% increase over our average of 74 employees during the period ended September 30, 2009. Other operating expenses increased by $2.1 million, which included $0.6 million related to accounting fees and $0.5 million related to transaction fee expenses primarily for the AMG-SIU acquisition. Other increases included $0.4 million in costs related to SEC filings, board and shareholder meetings, $0.3 million for insurance, supplies, delivery, subscriptions and dues, $0.2 million for employee recruitment and relocation expense, and $0.1 million for travel expenses. Data processing expense increased by $0.2 million related to our use of hosting services and software upgrades. Occupancy expense decreased by $0.1 million, primarily due to our vacating and subleasing one floor of office space at our New York City office starting in May 2009.

Operating income for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 was $46.2 million, an increase of $10.5 million or 29.5%, compared to $35.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2009. This increase was the result of increased revenue, which was partially offset by incremental operating costs incurred during the period ended September 30, 2010.
Interest expense was $70,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 compared to $820,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009. In the current period, interest expense represents commitment fees for our Credit Agreement and issuance fees for our Letter of Credit, as our loan was repaid in October 2009. In the prior period, interest expense was attributable to borrowings under the Term Loan, amortization of deferred financing costs, commitment fees for our Credit Agreement and issuance fees for our Letter of Credit. Interest income was $73,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 compared to interest income of $199,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, principally due to lower interest rates, partially offset by higher cash balances. Net other expense relating to our building in Irving, Texas was $31,000. We did not incur any real estate expense in the prior year period.
Income tax expense of $18.4 million was recorded for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 compared to $14.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, an increase of $4.1 million. Our effective tax rate decreased to 39.9% for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 from 40.9% for the period ended September 30, 2009 primarily due to a change in state apportionments. The principal difference between the statutory rate and our effective rate is state taxes.
Net income of $27.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 represents an increase of $7.0 million, or 33.8%, compared to net income of $20.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2009.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
Other than our Letter of Credit, we do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements. See Footnote 5 of the Notes to Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Our principal source of funds has been operations and we believe that we have sufficient cash and cash equivalents to support our operating needs through at least the next 12 months. At September 30, 2010, our cash and cash equivalents and net working capital were $66.0 million and $121.8 million, respectively. Although we expect that operating cash flows will continue to be a primary source of liquidity for our operating needs, we also have $20.4 million available under our Revolving Loan for future cash flow needs. There are currently no loans outstanding under the Revolving Loan; however, we have a $4.6 million Letter of Credit that reduces the availability under the Revolving Loan.
Net cash provided by operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 was $35.1 million compared to $24.7 million for the same period in 2009. The increase in cash provided by operating activities primarily resulted from net income of $27.7 million, decreases in deferred tax assets and other assets, in addition to non-cash expenses of share-based compensation, depreciation and amortization. These sources of cash were partially offset by increases in accounts receivable and prepaid assets.

Net cash used in investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 was $47.7 million compared to $13.0 million for the same period in 2009. Cash used in investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 included the acquisitions of Chapman Kelly for $13.0 million and AMG-SIU for $12.8 million, and the purchase of land and a building in Irving, Texas for $9.9 million. Investments in property, equipment and purchased software were $10.5 million compared to $6.5 million for the same period in 2009. Investment in capitalized software for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 was $1.5 million compared to $1.2 million for the same period in 2009.
Net cash provided by financing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 was $13.8 million compared to $8.6 million for the same period in 2009. Proceeds from stock option exercises in 2010 and 2009 were $5.5 million and $5.7 million, respectively. The excess tax benefits from stock option exercises for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 were $8.3 million and $7.6 million, respectively. Repayment of debt for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 was $4.7 million. We had no debt outstanding during 2010, as our debt was repaid in full in October 2009.
The net increase in cash and cash equivalents for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 was $1.2 million compared to $20.3 million for the same period in 2009.
The number of days sales outstanding for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 increased to 85 days from 84 days at September 30, 2009.
Operating cash flows could be adversely affected by a decrease in demand for our services. The majority of our client relationships have been in place for several years, and as a result, we do not expect any decrease in the demand for our services in the near term.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In January 2010, the Financial Accounting Standards Board, FASB, issued guidance that amends ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, that requires reporting entities to make new disclosures about recurring or nonrecurring fair-value measurements including significant transfers into and out of Level 1 and Level 2 fair-value measurements and information about purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements on a gross basis in the reconciliation of Level 3 fair-value measurements. This guidance also clarifies existing fair-value measurement disclosure guidance about the level of disaggregation, inputs, and valuation techniques. Except for the detailed Level 3 roll forward disclosures, which were effective, the guidance was effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2009 and did not have an impact on our consolidated interim financial statement.
In October 2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board, FASB, issued Accounting Standards Update 2009-13, “Multiple-Deliverable Revenue Arrangements — a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force,” to provide amendments to the criteria in Subtopic 609-24 of the Accounting Standards Codification, which we refer to as ASU 2009-13, for separating consideration into multiple-deliverable revenue arrangements. ASU 2009-13 establishes a selling price hierarchy for determining the selling price of each specific deliverable, which includes vendor-specific objective evidence, or VSOE, if available, third party evidence if VSOE is not available or estimated selling price if neither VSOE nor third party evidence is available. ASU 2009-13 also eliminates the residual method for allocating revenue between the elements of an arrangement and requires that arrangement consideration be allocated at the inception of the arrangement to all deliverables using the relative selling price method, which allocates any discount in the arrangement proportionally to each deliverable on the basis of each deliverable’s selling price. This update expands the disclosure requirements regarding a vendor’s multiple-deliverable revenue arrangements. ASU 2009-13 is effective prospectively for revenue arrangements entered into or materially modified in fiscal years beginning on or after June 15, 2010, with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of ASU 2009-13 on our consolidated financial statements.
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
None.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures
We maintain disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act) that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported as specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
As required by Rule 13a-15(b) under the Exchange Act, management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, performed an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of September 30, 2010. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report.
There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation of our controls performed during the quarter ended September 30, 2010 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Exhibit 10.1
Description of HMS Holdings Corp. 2010 Long Term Incentive Plan
1.  Objectives . Afford executives the multi-year opportunity/motivation and alignment with shareholders associated with an equity stake in HMS. Do so in a way that: i) is consistent with prior LTI grants, ii) extends the “pay-for-growth” philosophy to equity grants as well as STIP cash bonuses, iii) utilize shares approved for the plan efficiently, iv) is affordable in a FAS 123r context, and v) is compliant with the shareholder-approved 2006 Stock Plan, vi) competitive when compared to peer companies.
2.  Plan elements .
a. Timing — Grants will be dated and priced October 1, 2010. The price used will be the closing share price on October 1, 2010.
b. Exercise period — Seven years, consistent with the prior year’s grants and adequate in length for long-term appreciation and multi-year vesting periods to aid in retention. Options and RSU’s would expire on October 1, 2017.
c. Size of grant — Grant total of approximately 313,412 shares, or approximately 8% of the available pool. This grant consists of 240,202 options and 39,573 RSU’s. RSU’s are counted against the available pool at a rate of 1.85 shares per RSU, resulting in a total of 73,210 shares against the available pool for RSU’s. This year’s proposed grant represents approximately 1.1% of fully diluted shares outstanding, well within ISS guidelines for companies of a similar size and market capitalization.
c. Form of grants — Grants will be either in the form of non-qualified options (“NQs”) or Restricted Stock Units (RSU’s).
d. Approval of Grants — The Compensation Committee will approve to grant options to Executive Officers, the Board of Directors and a pool of options and RSU’s for the rest of the management participants to be allocated at the discretion of the Chief Executive Officer with input from senior management. The Board will ratify the Compensation Committee’s approval. By so structuring the 2010 grants, the Company will satisfy the letter of : I) Rule 16b-3 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which requires that grants of options to executive officers (i.e., reporting officers—Holster, Lucia, Hosp, Schmid, Perrin, Curtin, Dragonetti) be approved by the Board of Directors; and ii) Internal Revenue Code Section 162(m), which requires that the Compensation Committee have approved performance-based compensation if it is to be excepted from the compensation deductibility limitations of the Section.

 

 


 

e. Award specifics.
i. BSPA executives — As described in the 2009 Long Term Incentive Plan, the BSPA Asset Purchase Agreement and their Employment Agreements, the six former BSPA executives (Curtin, Glenn, Singh, Frey, Hancock, and Benedict) have fulfilled the issuance of the BSPA grants. There are no BSPA grants requested and the above named executives are now part of the regular program.
ii. Board of Directors — Applying the $80,000 FAS123R cost per Director equity compensation formula (implemented in 2006 at $40,000), each of our nine outside directors will receive approximately 1052 NQ options and 1052 RSUs, each based on current stock prices and Black-Scholes calculation (total for all Directors of 9,468 options and 9,468 RSUs). Options will vest 25% per quarter over one year, consistent with the “best practice” that long option vesting periods not be used to make Directors in any way beholden to management.
iii. Executive Officers and all other executives. As summarized on Attachment 4, the Executive Group will be granted 91,470 options and all other executives will be granted a total of 139,264 options and 30, 105 RSU’s (which account for 55,694 shares against the plan), and which will include the following performance vesting component:
—50% of each individual grant (options and RSU’s) would be outright, with a three and one-quarter year ratable vest and a seven-year exercise limit.
—50% of each individual grant (options and RSU’s) would be performance-based. Options and RSU’s would cliff vest at the end of three and one-quarter years on December 31, 2013. Vesting would require achievement of 40% growth in fully diluted earnings per share (EPS), 2012 over 2010, with a minimum of 15% EPS growth 2011 over 2010. See Exhibits 2 and 3 for a full description of award conditions. Use of EPS (rather than market cap) protects ability to reverse FAS 123r charges if criteria are missed and options lapse. The shorter vesting period (three and one-quarter years versus four) has been used in the last three years. It should be noted that performance vesting remains rare in our peer group or in LTI plans in general.

3.  Other considerations .
a. P&L Impact — Historical FAS123R charges have been $1.7 million in 2006, $2.2 million in 2007, $3.5 million in 2008 and $6.4 million for 2009. The estimated 123R expense for the 2010 is $7.8 million, including the grant recommendations above. It should be noted that the 2010 costs include the cost of Restricted Stock Grants to certain executives made in February 2009. Attachment 4B provides a detailed breakdown of the FAS 123R expenses and provides a simulation for future years using moderate growth assumptions in share price appreciation. The 123R expense for estimated for 2011 is only a 10% increase. The simulation demonstrates that, all other things equal, the company can continue to make annual grants which increase in relation to the company’s earnings growth (growth around 25%), but the actual 123R P&L impact will be much less (growth in the low teens) because the expense associated with older grants is now rolling off. Said differently, we have now reached a stage where the expense with each incremental annual grant is partially offset with a prior year’s grant expense being dropped. This simulation does not imply any approval of the future level of grants, but is only provided to show how the 123R expense may develop over time.
b. Overhang — As mentioned, this year’s grant request represents approximately 1.1% of outstanding shares. This is well below the 2% of outstanding share threshold of ISS (the firm that advises institutional investors on how to vote on proxy requests). We anticipate that because of the continued exercise of prior option grants that are currently deep-in-the-money, and because of the increased value of options and RSU’s results in a level of share requests for future grants which will be below the 2% threshold, our prior concerns of meeting ISS guidelines are greatly diminished.
c. Grant dispersion — The extension of the equity program further into the management hierarchy continues to be somewhat limited this year as we feel we are now reaching down to the right levels of the organization. We have increased the number of participants, but this is largely resulting from hiring new management as opposed to going further down the organization. It should also be noted that the fact of being selected for an option award, irrespective of its amount, is perceived by our management staff as significant recognition, and we believe LTI to be a powerful part of our overall system of financial and non-financial motivators.

Exhibit 10.2
Option No. XXXX
HMS HOLDINGS CORP.
Non-Qualified Stock Option Agreement
THIS AGREEMENT, made as of October 1, 2010 between HMS HOLDINGS CORP., a New York corporation (the “Corporation”), and First Name Last Name (the “Optionee”), is pursuant to the Amended and Restated 2006 Stock Plan of the Corporation (the “Plan”). The Plan, as adopted by the Board of Directors (the “Board”), was approved by the shareholders (the “Shareholders”) of the Corporation on June 12, 2009. Said Plan, as it may hereafter be amended and continued by the Board and the Shareholders, is incorporated herein by reference and made a part of this Agreement.
The Plan is administered by the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board, as defined in the Plan. The Board has determined that it would be to the advantage and interest of the Corporation and its shareholders to grant the option provided for herein to the Optionee as an inducement to remain in the service of the Corporation, or a Parent or a Subsidiary thereof, and as incentive for increased efforts during such service.
NOW, THEREFORE, pursuant to the Plan, the Corporation, with the approval of the Committee, hereby grants to the Optionee as of the date hereof an option (the “Option”) to purchase all or any part of an aggregate of XXX shares of the Corporation’s common shares, $.01 par value per share (the “Common Stock”), at $XXXX per share upon the following terms and conditions:
1. The Option and all rights of the Optionee to purchase shares of Common Stock hereunder shall terminate on September 30, 2017 (hereinafter referred to as the “Expiration Date”).

 

 


 

2. The Optionee’s right and option to purchase the shares of Common Stock pursuant to the Option shall vest as follows:
         
December 31, 2010
      XXX shares
March 31, 2011
  an additional   XXX shares
June 30, 2011
  an additional   XXX shares
September 30, 2011
  an additional   XXX shares
3. Once the Option has vested in accordance with the preceding Section 2, it shall continue to be exercisable until the earlier of the termination of the Optionee’s rights hereunder pursuant to Section 5, or the Expiration Date. A partial exercise of the Option shall not affect the Optionee’s right to exercise the Option with respect to the remaining shares subject thereto, subject to the conditions of the Plan and this Agreement. Full payment for shares acquired shall be made in cash at or prior to the time that an Option, or any part thereof, is exercised.
4. (a) Except as provided in Section 5, the Option may not be exercised unless the Optionee is, at the time of exercise, a non employee Director, as defined in the Plan, of the Corporation. A leave of absence or an interruption in service (including an interruption during military service) authorized or approved by the Corporation shall not be deemed an interruption of service for the purposes of Section 5.
(b) No partial exercise of the Option may be for less than 100 full shares (or less than all the shares as to which the Option is exercisable, if less than 100 shares), and in no event shall the Corporation be required to issue any fractional shares.

5. (a) In the event the Optionee shall cease to be in the service of the Corporation by reason of the Optionee’s death, disability (as defined below) or involuntarily by the Corporation other than for cause (as defined in paragraph (b) below) within 24 months following a Change in Control (as defined in the Plan), all Options held by the Optionee shall become fully vested and exercisable. In the event the Optionee shall cease to be in the service of the Corporation by reason of the Optionee’s retirement (as defined below), the Option shall continue to vest under Section 2 as if the Optionee had continued to be in the service of the Corporation until the expiration of two years after the Optionee’s retirement. In the event the Optionee shall cease to be in the service of the Corporation for any other reason, all unexercised Options held by the Optionee that are not then exercisable by the Optionee shall lapse effective the date of termination of service. For purposes of this Agreement (i) “disability” shall mean permanent and total disability as defined by Section 22(e)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”) as it now exists or may hereafter be amended and (ii) “retirement” shall mean termination of service in accordance with the retirement policies of the Corporation on or after attaining age 60 and completing 5 years of service with the Corporation.
(b) To the extent not theretofore exercised, any Options held by the Optionee that are then exercisable shall terminate as follows: If the service is terminated for any reason other than for cause (as defined below), disability, death, retirement or involuntarily by the Corporation other than for cause within 24 months following a Change in Control, any then exercisable Options shall terminate upon the expiration of three months after the termination of service. If the service terminates because of disability (as defined in paragraph (a) above) or because of death, any then exercisable Options shall terminate upon the expiration of one year after the termination of service. If the service terminates because of retirement (as defined in paragraph (a) above), any then exercisable Options, and any options that may subsequently become exercisable by operation of the post-retirement vesting provisions of Section 5(a), shall terminate upon the expiration of two years after the termination of service. If the termination is “for cause” as determined by the Board, which shall be deemed to mean the deliberate gross misconduct of the Optionee or the violation by the Optionee, after any such termination, of the terms of a Restrictive covenant and Confidentiality/Non-Disclosure Agreement with the Corporation, any then exercisable Options shall terminate upon the termination of service. If the service is terminated by the Corporation other than for cause (as defined above) within 24 months following a Change in Control, any then exercisable Options shall terminate upon the expiration of one year after the termination of service.
(c) Notwithstanding any provision of this Section 5 to the contrary, the Option may not be exercised and all rights hereunder shall terminate upon the Expiration Date.
6. Nothing in this Agreement shall confer upon the Optionee any right to continue in the employ or service of the Corporation or affect the right of the Corporation to terminate the Optionee’s service at any time.

7. (a) The Optionee may exercise the Option with respect to all or any part of the shares then exercisable by giving the Corporation written notice at 401 Park Avenue South, New York, New York 10016. Such notice shall specify the number of shares as to which the Option is being exercised and shall be preceded or accompanied by payment in full in accordance with Section 3 hereof.
(b) Prior to or concurrently with delivery by the Corporation to the Optionee of a certificate(s) representing such shares, the Optionee shall:
(i) upon notification of the amount due, pay promptly any amount necessary to satisfy applicable federal, state or local tax requirements; and
(ii) if such shares are not currently or effectively registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”) and applicable state securities laws, give satisfactory assurance in writing signed by the Optionee or his legal representative, as the case may be, that such shares are being purchased for investment and not with a view to the distribution thereof.
(c) As soon as practicable after receipt of the notice and payment referred to in subparagraph (a) of this Section 7, the Corporation shall cause to be delivered to the Optionee at the office of the Corporation at 401 Park Avenue South, New York, New York 10016 or such other place as may be mutually acceptable to the Corporation and the Optionee, a certificate or certificates for such shares; provided however, that the time of such delivery may be postponed by the Corporation for such period of time as may be required for the Corporation, with reasonable diligence, to comply with applicable registration requirements under the Act, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and any requirements under any other law or regulation applicable to the issuance or transfer of shares.

Exhibit 10.3
RSU Grant No. XXXX
HMS HOLDINGS CORP.
Restricted Stock Unit Agreement
THIS AGREEMENT, made as of October 1, 2010 between HMS HOLDINGS CORP., a New York corporation (the “Corporation”), and First Name Last Name (the “Participant”), is pursuant to the Amended and Restated 2006 Stock Plan of the Corporation (the “Plan”). The Plan, as amended by the Board of Directors (the “Board”), was last approved by the shareholders (the “Shareholders”) of the Corporation on June 12, 2009. Said Plan, as it may hereafter be amended and continued by the Board and the Shareholders, is incorporated herein by reference and made a part of this Agreement.
The Plan is administered by the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board, as defined in the Plan. The Board has determined that it would be to the advantage and interest of the Corporation and its shareholders to grant the restricted stock units provided for herein to the Participant as an inducement to remain in the service of the Corporation, or a Parent or a Subsidiary thereof, and as incentive for increased efforts during such service.
NOW, THEREFORE, pursuant to the Plan, the Corporation, with the approval of the Committee, hereby grants to the Participant as of the date hereof XXX restricted stock units (the “Units”), upon the following terms and conditions:
1. The Units shall be credited to a bookkeeping account (the “Account”) maintained by the Company for the Participant’s benefit. Each Unit shall be deemed to be the equivalent of one share of the Corporation’s common shares, $.01 par value per share (the “Common Stock”).
2. The Optionee’s right and option to the Units shall vest as follows:
         
December 31, 2010
      XXX Units
March 31, 2011
  an additional   XXX Units
June 30, 2011
  an additional   XXX Units
September 30, 2011
  an additional   XXX Units

 

 


 

3. (a) In the event the Participant shall cease to be employed by the Corporation by reason of the Participant’s death, disability (as defined below) or involuntarily by the Corporation other than for cause (as defined in paragraph (b) below) within 24 months following a Change in Control (as defined in the Plan), all of the Units shall become fully vested. In the event the Participant shall cease to be employed by the Corporation by reason of the Participant’s retirement (as defined below), the Units shall continue to vest under Section 2 and Exhibit A as if the Participant had continued to be employed by the Corporation until the expiration of two years after the Participant’s retirement. In the event the Participant shall cease to be employed by the Corporation for any other reason, the Units which are not then vested shall be forfeited effective as of the date of termination of employment. For purposes of this Agreement (i) “disability” shall mean permanent and total disability as defined by Section 22(e)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended as it now exists or may hereafter be amended and (ii) “retirement” shall mean termination of employment on or after attaining age 60 and completing 5 years of service with the Corporation. The vesting of the Units shall not be affected by any change of duties or position so long as the Participant continues to be an employee of the Corporation. A leave of absence or an interruption in service (including an interruption during military service) authorized or approved by the Corporation shall not be deemed an interruption of employment for purposes of this Section.
(b) For purposes of this Section a termination “for cause” as determined by the Board, shall be deemed to mean the deliberate gross misconduct of the Participant or the violation by the Participant, after any such termination, of the terms of a Restrictive Covenant and Confidentiality/Non-Disclosure Agreement with the Corporation.
4. Nothing in this Agreement shall confer upon the Participant any right to continue in the employ or service of the Corporation or affect the right of the Corporation to terminate the Participant’s employment or service at any time.
5. In the event of any merger, reorganization, consolidation, recapitalization, stock dividend, stock split, reverse stock split, spin-off, extraordinary cash dividend or similar transaction or other change on corporate structure affecting the Common Stock, the Committee shall make such adjustments and substitutions to the number of Units credited to the Account and the class and kind of shares (to the nearest possible full share) deemed to be the equivalent of one Unit as the Committee determines to be appropriate in its sole discretion.

 

Page 2


 

6. During the period that Units remain unvested, the Participant shall have none of the rights of a stockholder of the Corporation with respect to the Common Stock subject to the Units. On each date that cash dividends are paid on the Common Stock, the Corporation will credit the Account with a number of additional Units equal to the result of dividing (i) the product of the total number of Units credited to the Account on the record date for such dividend and the per share amount of such dividend by (ii) the Fair Market Value of one share of Common Stock on the date such dividend is paid by the Corporation to shareholders. The additional Units shall be or become vested to the same extent as the Units that resulted in the crediting of such additional Units.
7. The Corporation shall make payments to the Participant of the vested Units credited to the Account upon the dates the Units vest. Payment shall be made in shares of Common Stock equal to the number of vested Stock Units credited to the Account on each such date. Payment shall be made as soon as practicable after the applicable vesting date, but in no event later than 30 days after the applicable vesting date, by delivering the shares to the Participant at the office of the Corporation at 401 Park Avenue South, New York, New York 10016 or such other place as may be mutually acceptable to the Corporation and the Participant. Notwithstanding the foregoing, delivery may be postponed by the Corporation for such period of time as may be required for the Corporation, with reasonable diligence, to comply with applicable registration requirements under the Act, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and any requirements under any other law or regulation applicable to the issuance or transfer of shares.
8. Prior to or concurrently with delivery by the Corporation to the Participant of a certificate(s) representing the shares of Common Stock in payment of Units, the Participant upon notification of the amount due, shall pay promptly to the Corporation any amount necessary to satisfy applicable federal, state or local tax requirements.
9. In the event of the Participant’s death prior to payment of the Units credited to the Account, payment shall be made to the last beneficiary designated in writing that is received by the Company prior to the Participant’s death or, if no designated beneficiary survives the Participant, such payment shall be made to the Participant’s estate. In the event of any attempt by the Participant to transfer, assign, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise dispose of the Units or of any right hereunder, except as provided for herein or in the 2006 Stock Plan, or in the event of the levy of any attachment, execution or similar process upon the rights or interest hereby conferred, the Units to the extent unvested may be forfeited by the Corporation by notice to the Participant.

 

Page 3


 

10. The Units shall not be transferable other than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution, or pursuant to a qualified domestic relations order as defined by the Code or Title I of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, or the rules thereunder. In the event of any attempt by the Participant to transfer, assign, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise dispose of the Units or of any right hereunder, except as provided for herein or in the 2006 Stock Plan, or in the event of the levy of any attachment, execution or similar process upon the rights or interest hereby conferred, the Corporation may terminate this Units by notice to the Participant and they shall thereupon become null and void.
11. The Participant’s right to receive payment under this Agreement shall be an unfunded entitlement and shall be an unsecured claim against the general assets of the Corporation. The Participant has only the status of a general unsecured creditor hereunder, and this Agreement constitutes only a promise by the Corporation to pay the value of the Account on the payment date.
12. This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the heirs, legatees, distributees, executors and administrators of the Participant and the successors and assigns of the Corporation.
13. This Agreement shall be governed by, and interpreted in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York, other than its conflict of laws principles.
14. This Agreement (and the grant of Units) is not an employment or service contract, and nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to create in any way whatsoever any obligation on the Participant to continue as an employee, or on the Corporation to continue the Participant’s service as an employee.
15. This Agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and may not be modified except as provided in the Plan or in a written document executed by both parties.

16. If any provision of this Agreement shall be held unlawful or otherwise invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall (i) be deemed limited to the extent that such court of competent jurisdiction deems it lawful, valid and/or enforceable and as so limited shall remain in full force and effect, and (ii) not affect any other provision of this Agreement or part thereof.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Corporation has caused this Agreement to be signed by a duly authorized officer, and the Participant has affixed his signature hereto.

Exhibit 10.4
Option No. XXXX
HMS HOLDINGS CORP.
Non-Qualified Stock Option Agreement
THIS AGREEMENT, made as of the October 1, 2010 between HMS HOLDINGS CORP., a New York corporation (the “Corporation”), and First Name Last Name (the “Optionee”), is pursuant to the Amended and Restated 2006 Stock Plan of the Corporation (the “Plan”). The Plan, as adopted by the Board of Directors (the “Board”), was approved by the shareholders (the “Shareholders”) of the Corporation on June 12, 2009. Said Plan, as it may hereafter be amended and continued by the Board and the Shareholders, is incorporated herein by reference and made a part of this Agreement.
The Plan is administered by the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board, as defined in the Plan. The Board has determined that it would be to the advantage and interest of the Corporation and its shareholders to grant the option provided for herein to the Optionee as an inducement to remain in the service of the Corporation, or a Parent or a Subsidiary thereof, and as incentive for increased efforts during such service.
NOW, THEREFORE, pursuant to the Plan, the Corporation, with the approval of the Committee, hereby grants to the Optionee as of the date hereof an option (the “Option”) to purchase all or any part of an aggregate of XXXX shares of the Corporation’s common shares, $.01 par value per share (the “Common Stock”), at $XX.XX per share upon the following terms and conditions:
1. The Option and all rights of the Optionee to purchase shares of Common Stock hereunder shall terminate on September 30, 2017 (hereinafter referred to as the “Expiration Date”).

 

 


 

2. The Optionee’s right and option to purchase one-half of the shares of Common Stock pursuant to the Option shall vest as follows:
         
December 31, 2011
      XXX shares
December 31, 2012
  an additional   XXX shares
December 31, 2013
  an additional   XXX shares
The Optionee’s right and option to purchase the other one-half of the shares of Common Stock pursuant to the Option shall vest in accordance with the requirements set forth on Exhibit A.
3. Once the Option has vested in accordance with the preceding Section 2, it shall continue to be exercisable until the earlier of the termination of the Optionee’s rights hereunder pursuant to Section 5, or the Expiration Date. A partial exercise of the Option shall not affect the Optionee’s right to exercise the Option with respect to the remaining shares subject thereto, subject to the conditions of the Plan and this Agreement. Full payment for shares acquired shall be made in cash at or prior to the time that an Option, or any part thereof, is exercised.
4. (a) Except as provided in Section 5, the Option may not be exercised unless the Optionee is, at the time of exercise, an employee, as defined in the Plan, of the Corporation or of a Parent or Subsidiary, as defined in the Plan, thereof (collectively hereinafter referred to as the “Corporation”). The Option shall not be affected by any change of duties or position so long as the Optionee continues to be an employee of the Corporation. A leave of absence or an interruption in service (including an interruption during military service) authorized or approved by the Corporation shall not be deemed an interruption of employment for the purposes of Section 5.
(b) No partial exercise of the Option may be for less than 100 full shares (or less than all the shares as to which the Option is exercisable, if less than 100 shares), and in no event shall the Corporation be required to issue any fractional shares.

5. (a) In the event the Optionee shall cease to be employed by the Corporation by reason of the Optionee’s death, disability (as defined below) or involuntarily by the Company other than for cause (as defined in paragraph (b) below) within 24 months following a Change in Control (as defined in the Plan), all Options held by the Optionee shall become fully vested and exercisable. In the event the Optionee shall cease to be employed by the Corporation for any other reason, all unexercised Options held by the Optionee which are not then exercisable by the Optionee shall lapse effective the date of termination of employment. For purposes of this Agreement “disability” shall mean permanent and total disability as defined by Section 22(e)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”) as it now exists or may hereafter be amended
(b) To the extent not theretofore exercised, any Options held by the Optionee which are then exercisable shall terminate as follows: If the employment is terminated for any reason other than for cause (as defined below), disability, death or involuntarily by the Corporation other than for cause within 24 months following a Change in Control, any then exercisable Options shall terminate upon the expiration of three months after the termination of employment. If the employment terminates because of disability (as defined in paragraph (a) above) or because of death, any then exercisable Options shall terminate upon the expiration of one year after the termination of employment. If the termination is “for cause” as determined by the Board, which shall be deemed to mean the deliberate gross misconduct of the Optionee or the violation by the Optionee, after any such termination, of the terms of a Restrictive covenant and Confidentiality/Non-Disclosure Agreement with the Corporation, any then exercisable Options shall terminate upon the termination of employment. If the employment is terminated by the Corporation other than for cause (as defined above) within 24 months following a Change in Control, any then exercisable Options shall terminate upon the expiration of one year after the termination of employment.
6. Nothing in this Agreement shall confer upon the Optionee any right to continue in the employ or service of the Corporation or affect the right of the Corporation to terminate the Optionee’s employment or service at any time.
7. (a) The Optionee may exercise the Option with respect to all or any part of the shares then exercisable by giving the Corporation written notice at 401 Park Avenue South, New York, New York 10016. Such notice shall specify the number of shares as to which the Option is being exercised and shall be preceded or accompanied by payment in full in accordance with Section 3 hereof.

(b) Prior to or concurrently with delivery by the Corporation to the Optionee of a certificate(s) representing such shares, the Optionee shall:
(i) upon notification of the amount due, pay promptly any amount necessary to satisfy applicable federal, state or local tax requirements; and
(ii) if such shares are not currently or effectively registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”) and applicable state securities laws, give satisfactory assurance in writing signed by the Optionee or his legal representative, as the case may be, that such shares are being purchased for investment and not with a view to the distribution thereof.
(c) As soon as practicable after receipt of the notice and payment referred to in subparagraph (a) of this Section 7, the Corporation shall cause to be delivered to the Optionee at the office of the Corporation at 401 Park Avenue South, New York, New York 10016 or such other place as may be mutually acceptable to the Corporation and the Optionee, a certificate or certificates for such shares; provided however, that the time of such delivery may be postponed by the Corporation for such period of time as may be required for the Corporation, with reasonable diligence, to comply with applicable registration requirements under the Act, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and any requirements under any other law or regulation applicable to the issuance or transfer of shares. If the Optionee fails for any reason to accept delivery of all or any part of the number of shares specified in such notice upon tender of delivery thereof, his right to purchase such undelivered shares may be terminated.
8. In the event of any merger, reorganization, consolidation, recapitalization, stock dividend, stock split, reverse stock split, spin-off, extraordinary cash dividend or similar transaction or other change on corporate structure affecting the Common Stock, the Committee shall make such adjustments and substitutions to the number, class and kind of shares (to the nearest possible full share) and to the price per share subject to the unexercised portion of this Option as the Committee determines to be appropriate in its sole discretion.

Performance Conditions
1. The Corporation’s earnings per share (“EPS”) for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2011 are at least 15% higher than the Corporation’s EPS for fiscal year ending December 31, 2010.
2. Based on the percentage increase in EPS for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2012 compared to EPS for fiscal year ending December 31, 2010 the percentage of Performance Option Shares that shall be deemed to be vested, subject to satisfaction of the service condition, shall be determined in accordance with the following table:

RSU Grant No. XXXX
HMS HOLDINGS CORP.
Restricted Stock Unit Agreement
THIS AGREEMENT, made as of October 1, 2010 between HMS HOLDINGS CORP., a New York corporation (the “Corporation”), and First Name Last Name (the “Participant”), is pursuant to the Amended and Restated 2006 Stock Plan of the Corporation (the “Plan”). The Plan, as amended by the Board of Directors (the “Board”), was last approved by the shareholders (the “Shareholders”) of the Corporation on June 12, 2009. Said Plan, as it may hereafter be amended and continued by the Board and the Shareholders, is incorporated herein by reference and made a part of this Agreement.
The Plan is administered by the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board, as defined in the Plan. The Board has determined that it would be to the advantage and interest of the Corporation and its shareholders to grant the restricted stock units provided for herein to the Participant as an inducement to remain in the service of the Corporation, or a Parent or a Subsidiary thereof, and as incentive for increased efforts during such service.
NOW, THEREFORE, pursuant to the Plan, the Corporation, with the approval of the Committee, hereby grants to the Participant as of the date hereof XX restricted stock units (the “Units”), upon the following terms and conditions:
1. The Units shall be credited to a bookkeeping account (the “Account”) maintained by the Company for the Participant’s benefit. Each Unit shall be deemed to be the equivalent of one share of the Corporation’s common shares, $.01 par value per share (the “Common Stock”).
2. The Participant’s right to one-half of the Units shall vest as follows:
         
December 31, 2011
      XX Units
December 31, 2012
  an additional   XX Units
December 31, 2013
  an additional   XX Units

 

 


 

The Participant’s right to the other one-half of the Units shall vest in accordance with the requirements set forth on Exhibit A.
3. (a) In the event the Participant shall cease to be employed by the Corporation by reason of the Participant’s death, disability (as defined below) or involuntarily by the Corporation other than for cause (as defined in paragraph (b) below) within 24 months following a Change in Control (as defined in the Plan), all of the Units shall become fully vested. In the event the Participant shall cease to be employed by the Corporation by reason of the Participant’s retirement (as defined below), the Units shall continue to vest under Section 2 and Exhibit A as if the Participant had continued to be employed by the Corporation until the expiration of two years after the Participant’s retirement. In the event the Participant shall cease to be employed by the Corporation for any other reason, the Units which are not then vested shall be forfeited effective as of the date of termination of employment. For purposes of this Agreement (i) “disability” shall mean permanent and total disability as defined by Section 22(e)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended as it now exists or may hereafter be amended and (ii) “retirement” shall mean termination of employment on or after attaining age 60 and completing 5 years of service with the Corporation. The vesting of the Units shall not be affected by any change of duties or position so long as the Participant continues to be an employee of the Corporation. A leave of absence or an interruption in service (including an interruption during military service) authorized or approved by the Corporation shall not be deemed an interruption of employment for purposes of this Section.
(b) For purposes of this Section a termination “for cause” as determined by the Board, shall be deemed to mean the deliberate gross misconduct of the Participant or the violation by the Participant, after any such termination, of the terms of a Restrictive Covenant and Confidentiality/Non-Disclosure Agreement with the Corporation.
4. Nothing in this Agreement shall confer upon the Participant any right to continue in the employ or service of the Corporation or affect the right of the Corporation to terminate the Participant’s employment or service at any time.

5. In the event of any merger, reorganization, consolidation, recapitalization, stock dividend, stock split, reverse stock split, spin-off, extraordinary cash dividend or similar transaction or other change on corporate structure affecting the Common Stock, the Committee shall make such adjustments and substitutions to the number of Units credited to the Account and the class and kind of shares (to the nearest possible full share) deemed to be the equivalent of one Unit as the Committee determines to be appropriate in its sole discretion.
6. During the period that Units remain unvested, the Participant shall have none of the rights of a stockholder of the Corporation with respect to the Common Stock subject to the Units. On each date that cash dividends are paid on the Common Stock, the Corporation will credit the Account with a number of additional Units equal to the result of dividing (i) the product of the total number of Units credited to the Account on the record date for such dividend and the per share amount of such dividend by (ii) the Fair Market Value of one share of Common Stock on the date such dividend is paid by the Corporation to shareholders. The additional Units shall be or become vested to the same extent as the Units that resulted in the crediting of such additional Units.
7. The Corporation shall make payments to the Participant of the vested Units credited to the Account upon the dates the Units vest. Payment shall be made in shares of Common Stock equal to the number of vested Stock Units credited to the Account on each such date. Payment shall be made as soon as practicable after the applicable vesting date, but in no event later than 30 days after the applicable vesting date, by delivering the shares to the Participant at the office of the Corporation at 401 Park Avenue South, New York, New York 10016 or such other place as may be mutually acceptable to the Corporation and the Participant. Notwithstanding the foregoing, delivery may be postponed by the Corporation for such period of time as may be required for the Corporation, with reasonable diligence, to comply with applicable registration requirements under the Act, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and any requirements under any other law or regulation applicable to the issuance or transfer of shares.
8. Prior to or concurrently with delivery by the Corporation to the Participant of a certificate(s) representing the shares of Common Stock in payment of Units, the Participant upon notification of the amount due, shall pay promptly to the Corporation any amount necessary to satisfy applicable federal, state or local tax requirements.

9. In the event of the Participant’s death prior to payment of the Units credited to the Account, payment shall be made to the last beneficiary designated in writing that is received by the Company prior to the Participant’s death or, if no designated beneficiary survives the Participant, such payment shall be made to the Participant’s estate. In the event of any attempt by the Participant to transfer, assign, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise dispose of the Units or of any right hereunder, except as provided for herein or in the Amended and Restated 2006 Stock Plan, or in the event of the levy of any attachment, execution or similar process upon the rights or interest hereby conferred, the Units to the extent unvested may be forfeited by the Corporation by notice to the Participant.
10. The Units shall not be transferable other than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution, or pursuant to a qualified domestic relations order as defined by the Code or Title I of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, or the rules thereunder. In the event of any attempt by the Participant to transfer, assign, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise dispose of the Units or of any right hereunder, except as provided for herein or in the Amended and Restated 2006 Stock Plan, or in the event of the levy of any attachment, execution or similar process upon the rights or interest hereby conferred, the Corporation may terminate this Units by notice to the Participant and they shall thereupon become null and void.
11. The Participant’s right to receive payment under this Agreement shall be an unfunded entitlement and shall be an unsecured claim against the general assets of the Corporation. The Participant has only the status of a general unsecured creditor hereunder, and this Agreement constitutes only a promise by the Corporation to pay the value of the Account on the payment date.
12. This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the heirs, legatees, distributees, executors and administrators of the Participant and the successors and assigns of the Corporation.
13. This Agreement shall be governed by, and interpreted in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York, other than its conflict of laws principles.
14. This Agreement (and the grant of Units) is not an employment or service contract, and nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to create in any way whatsoever any obligation on the Participant to continue as an employee, or on the Corporation to continue the Participant’s service as an employee.

 

Page 4


 

15. This Agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and may not be modified except as provided in the Plan or in a written document executed by both parties.
16. If any provision of this Agreement shall be held unlawful or otherwise invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall (i) be deemed limited to the extent that such court of competent jurisdiction deems it lawful, valid and/or enforceable and as so limited shall remain in full force and effect, and (ii) not affect any other provision of this Agreement or part thereof.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Corporation has caused this Agreement to be signed by a duly authorized officer, and the Participant has affixed his signature hereto.

EXHIBIT A
The vesting of 50% of the Units (the “Performance Units”) shall occur to the extent that the performance and service conditions set forth below are satisfied:
Performance Conditions
1. The Corporation’s earnings per share (“EPS”) for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2011 are at least 15% higher than the Corporation’s EPS for fiscal year ending December 31, 2010.
2. Based on the percentage increase in EPS for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2012 compared to EPS for fiscal year ending December 31, 2010 the percentage of Performance Units that shall be deemed to be vested, subject to satisfaction of the service condition, shall be determined in accordance with the following table:
     
Increase in EPS   Deemed Vested Percentage
     
     
40% or greater   100%
EPS shall be determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, excluding the effects of any transaction during the Performance Period in which the Corporation or a subsidiary acquires or combines with another company that was not then a subsidiary.
The Committee in its sole discretion following the end of the Performance Period may determine that, notwithstanding whether the EPS requirement above has been achieved, a larger or smaller percentage of the Performance Units shall be deemed to be vested (but in no event more than 100%), subject to satisfaction of the service condition.
Service Condition
The Participant must remain employed by the Corporation until December 31, 2013 except as provided in Section 3(a).
