The value of PSI’s stock is determined annually by an independent firm using widely accepted performance metrics to assess the financial status of PSI relative to the performance of similar publicly traded companies. In this manner an employee may directly benefit from the successful performance of the company. You may realize the value of the stock at retirement or via transfer to another qualified retirement plan if you leave the company prior to retirement, subject to a divestiture schedule
