Excise Tax. (a) Notwithstanding any other provisions in this Agreement, in the event that any payment or benefit received or to be received by Executive (including, but not limited to, any payment or benefit received in connection with a change in control of GulfMark or the termination of Executive’s employment, whether pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or any other plan, program, arrangement or agreement) (all such payments and benefits, together, the “Total Payments”) would be subject (in whole or part), to any excise tax imposed under Section 4999 of the Code, or any successor provision thereto (the “Excise Tax”), then, after taking into account any reduction in the Total Payments provided by reason of Section 280G of the Code in such other plan, program, arrangement or agreement, the Company will reduce the Total Payments to the extent necessary so that no portion of the Total Payments is subject to the Excise Tax (but in no event to less than zero); provided, however, that the Total Payments will only be reduced if # the net amount of such Total Payments, as so reduced (and after subtracting the net amount of federal, state, municipal and local income taxes on such reduced Total Payments and after taking into account the phase out of itemized deductions and personal exemptions attributable to such reduced Total Payments), is greater than or equal to # the net amount of such Total Payments without such reduction (but after subtracting the net amount of federal, state, municipal and local income taxes on such Total Payments and the amount of Excise Tax to which Executive would be subject in respect of such unreduced Total Payments and after taking into account the phase out of itemized deductions and personal exemptions attributable to such unreduced Total Payments).

In the event that any payments or benefits provided or to be provided by Company or Bank or their respective Affiliates to Executive or for Executive’s benefit pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or otherwise (“Covered Payments”) constitute “parachute payments” within the meaning of Section 280G of the Code (or any successor provision thereto) and would, but for this Section 24(b), be subject to the excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Code (or any successor provision thereto) or any similar tax imposed by state or local law or any interest or penalties with respect to such taxes (collectively, the “Excise Tax”), then the Covered Payments shall be reduced (but not below zero) to the minimum extent necessary to ensure that no portion of the Covered Payments is subject to the Excise Tax.

Excise Tax. (a) Notwithstanding any other provisions in this Agreement, in the event that any payment or benefit received or to be received by the Executive (including any payment or benefit received in connection with a change in control of the Company or the termination of the Executive’s employment, whether pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or any other plan, program, arrangement or agreement) (all such payments and benefits, together, the “Total Payments”) would be subject (in whole or part), to any excise tax imposed under Section 4999 of the Code, or any successor provision thereto (the “Excise Tax”), then, after taking into account any reduction in the Total Payments provided by reason of Section 280G of the Code in such other plan, program, arrangement or agreement, the Company will reduce the Total Payments to the extent necessary so that no portion of the Total Payments is subject to the Excise Tax (but in no event to less than zero); provided, however, that the Total Payments will only be reduced if # the net amount of such Total Payments, as so reduced (and after subtracting the net amount of federal, state, municipal and local income taxes on such reduced Total Payments and after taking into account the phase out of itemized deductions and personal exemptions attributable to such reduced Total Payments), is greater than or equal to # the net amount of such Total Payments without such reduction (but after subtracting the net amount of federal, state, municipal and local income taxes on such Total Payments and the amount of Excise Tax to which the Executive would be subject in respect of such unreduced Total Payments and after taking into account the phase out of itemized deductions and personal exemptions attributable to such unreduced Total Payments).

In the event that any amounts payable under this Agreement or otherwise to Executive would # constitute “parachute payments” within the meaning of Section 280G of the Code or any comparable successor provision and # but for this Section 24(b), be subject to the excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Code or any comparable successor provision (the “Excise Tax”), then such amounts payable to Executive shall be reduced (but not below zero) to the extent necessary to ensure that no portion thereof is subject to the Excise Tax, but only if the net amount of such amounts payable, as so reduced, is greater than or equal to the net amount of such amounts payable if such reduction were not made and Executive had paid such Excise Tax. Any such reduction shall be made by Bank, in its sole discretion, consistent with the requirements of Section 409A of the Code.

It is the intention of the Employer and the Executive that no portion of any payment under this Agreement, or payments to or for the benefit of the Executive under any other agreement or plan, be deemed to be an “Excess Parachute Payment” as defined in Section 280G of the Internal Revenue Code

Excise Tax Payments. If a Participant is entitled to receive payments and benefits under the Plan and if, when combined with the payments and benefits the Participant is entitled to receive under any other plan, program or arrangement, the Participant would be subject to excise tax under Section 4999 of the Code, then the Company shall make “gross-up” payments to the Participant in the amount(s), at the time(s) and upon the terms and conditions set forth in Exhibit C annexed to the Plan and incorporated herein by reference; provided, however, that no Participant that entered the Plan after March 3, 2011 is eligible to receive any “gross-up” payments.

Excise Tax Provision. Notwithstanding anything elsewhere in this Agreement to the contrary, if any of the payments or benefits provided for in this Agreement, together with any other payments or benefits which Employee has the right to receive from the Company (or its affiliated companies), would constitute a “parachute payment” as defined in Section 280G(h)(2) of the Code, the parties agree that the payments or benefits provided to Employee pursuant to this Agreement shall be reduced so that the present value of the total amount received by Employee that would constitute a ‘‘parachute payment” will be one dollar less than three times Employee’s base amount (as defined in Section 280G of the Code) and so that no portion of the payment or benefits received by Employee would be subject to the excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Code. Any such reduction shall be applied first to any and all payments and benefits that are not considered “nonqualified deferred compensation” for purposes of Section 409A of the Code (in such order and manner as Employee in his sole discretion may determine). After any and all such payments and benefits have been eliminated, any reduction of payments and benefits that are considered “nonqualified deferred compensation” shall be made in reverse chronological order of their payment dates (determined without regard to any acceleration of payment as a result of any Change of Control or other similar event).

Excise Tax Limitation. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if any benefit payment hereunder would be treated as an “excess parachute payment” under Code [Section 280G], the Employer shall comply with any restrictions or limitations found in the any employment or other agreement between the Executive and the Employer or any of its Affiliates addressing the treatment of excess parachute payments.

Unless otherwise provided for in the Award Agreement or in any other agreement between the Company (or an Affiliate) and the Participant, if any payment or right accruing to a Participant under this Plan (without the application of this [Article XXVI]), either alone or together with other payments or rights accruing to the Participant from the Company or an Affiliate, would constitute a “parachute payment” (as defined in Section 280G of the Code and regulations thereunder), such payment or right shall be reduced to the largest amount or greatest right that will result in no portion of the amount payable or right accruing under the Plan being subject to an excise tax under Section 4999 of the Code or being disallowed as a deduction under Section 280G of the Code. The determination of whether any reduction in the rights or payments under this Plan is necessary shall be made by the Company. The Participant shall cooperate in good faith with the Company in making such determination and providing any necessary information for this purpose.
