Stock Ownership Guidelines
To align the interests of our directors and shareholders, the Kansas City Southern (KCS) Board of Directors believes that directors should have a significant financial stake in KCS and has adopted a guideline that requires all non-employee directors to beneficially own shares of KCS Common Stock with a fair market value equal to at least five times the base annual retainer for serving as a Board member (currently 5 x $50,000 = $250,000). Non-employee directors must achieve this ownership level within five years from the date of their election to the Board. Restricted stock granted to a non-employee director by KCS counts toward the requirement.
