The NAESPP operates as follows:

  • Each month the Administrator uses participants’ contributions (between 1% and 5% of base salary limited to a maximum investment of $10,000 per annum) to purchase shares in the market. These shares are called Partnership Shares and are registered in the name of the participant. Participants may hold both fractional and whole Partnership Shares.
  • For every two Partnership Shares participants still own after two years the Company awards one Matching Share on the second anniversary of the Partnership Shares purchase.
  • Participants may change their monthly savings rate whenever they wish. However, Directors and others bound by the Company’s Share Dealing Code (the Code) may not make such a change during a close period or when otherwise prohibited from dealing by the Code.
  • The NAESPP is open to employees who have continuous service with the Company’s North American participating companies.
