(e) On January 17, 2014, SM Energy Company (the "Company") adopted a Nonqualified Deferred Compensation Plan (the "Plan"). The effective date of the Plan is March 10, 2014. The Plan is designed to provide certain employees of the Company the opportunity to defer a portion of base salary and cash bonuses paid pursuant to the Company's Cash Bonus Plan and all directors of the Company the opportunity to defer a portion of their annual cash retainer and any meeting fees. The Plan permits the Company to designate which employees are eligible to participate in the Plan.


Each year, participating employees may elect to defer (i) between 1% and 50% of their base salary, and (ii) between 1% and 100% of the cash bonus paid pursuant to the Cash Bonus Plan. The Plan requires the Company to make contributions for each eligible employee equal to 100% of the deferred amount for such employee, limited to 6% of such employee's base salary and cash bonus. Each eligible employee's interest in the contributions made by the Company will vest 40% after the second year such employee's service to the Company, and 20% per year thereafter.

Each year, directors may elect to defer between 1% and 100% of their annual cash retainer and meeting fees. The Plan does not provide for contributions by the Company for directors.

A participant's account will be distributed based upon the participant's payment election made at the time of deferral. A participant may elect to have distributions made in lump sum or in annual installments ranging for a period from 1 - 10 years.

The foregoing summary of the terms and conditions of the Plan is not a complete discussion of the Plan document. Accordingly, the foregoing is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Plan, which is included as Exhibit 10.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K, which is incorporated herein by reference.
