9.2. Obligation to Make Payments.
Interpublic may satisfy any provision of the Plan that obligates Interpublic to make a payment or to provide a benefit by causing another party, such as a Subsidiary, to make the payment or to provide the benefit.
9.3. Authority to Determine Payment Date.
To the extent that any payment under the Plan may be made within a specified number of days on or after any date or the occurrence of any event, the date of payment shall be determined by Interpublic in its sole discretion, and not by any Participant, beneficiary, or other individual.
9.4. Successors to Employer or the Company.
Interpublic shall require any successor (whether direct or indirect, by merger, consolidation, sale of stock or assets, or otherwise) to the business or assets of Interpublic, expressly, absolutely, and unconditionally to assume the Plan and to administer the Plan in accordance with its terms.
In the event of a sale, spin-off, disposition, or similar transaction that results in an Employer ceasing to be a Subsidiary of Interpublic, Interpublic shall require the Employer or successor thereto to assume all obligations under the Plan with respect to each Participant who continues employment with the Employer or successor immediately after such sale, divestiture or similar transaction (each, a “Transferred Participant”). Neither Interpublic nor any Subsidiary of Interpublic shall have any obligation under the Plan with respect to a Transferred Participant after the closing of the applicable sale, divestiture, or similar transaction. Any amendment, suspension, or termination of the Employer’s or successor’s obligations with respect to Transferred Participants shall be subject to Section 7.4(b).
9.5. Mitigation Not Required.
The Participant shall not be required to mitigate amounts payable under the Plan by seeking other employment or otherwise. Except to the extent otherwise expressly provided by the terms of the Plan, the acceptance of any such other employment shall not diminish or impair the amounts payable to any Participant under the Plan.
If the Administrative Committee determines that any person entitled to benefits under the Plan is unable to care for his affairs because of illness or accident, any payment due (unless a duly qualified guardian or other legal representative has been appointed) may be made for the benefit of such person to his spouse, parent, brother, sister, or other party deemed by the Administrative Committee to have incurred expenses for such person.
