KIMBERLY-CLARK CORPORATION
P. O. Box 619100
Dallas, Texas 75261-9100
March 3, 1995
 
INTRODUCTION
 
     The accompanying proxy is solicited on behalf of the Board of Directors of
Kimberly-Clark Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the "Corporation"), for use
at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on April 20, 1995 and at any
adjournment thereof. Proxies in the accompanying form, properly signed and
received in time for the meeting, will be voted as instructed. If no
instructions are given, proxies will be voted for the election of directors, the
approval of the selection of the auditor and the approval of amendments to the
Corporation's 1992 Equity Participation Plan, and against the stockholder
proposal. Any proxy may be revoked by the stockholder granting it at any time
before it is voted by delivering to the Secretary of the Corporation another
signed proxy card, or a signed document revoking the earlier proxy.
 
     Each stockholder of record at the close of business on February 20, 1995
will be entitled to one vote for each share registered in such stockholder's
name. As of that date, there were outstanding 160,218,301 shares of common stock
of the Corporation.
 
     The entire cost of the proxy solicitation, including the reasonable
expenses of brokers, fiduciaries and other nominees in forwarding proxy material
to beneficial owners, will be borne by the Corporation. In addition to the use
of the mail, solicitation may be made by telephone or otherwise by regular
employees of the Corporation. If undertaken, the expense of such solicitation
would be nominal.
 
     Stockholders' proxies are received by the Corporation's independent proxy
processing agent, and the vote is certified by independent inspectors of
election. Proxies and ballots that identify the vote of stockholders will be
kept confidential, except as necessary to meet legal requirements, in cases
where stockholders request disclosure or write comments on their proxy cards, or
in a contested matter involving an opposing proxy solicitation. During the proxy
solicitation period, the Corporation will receive vote tallies from time to time
from the independent proxy processing agent, but such tallies will provide
aggregate data rather than names of stockholders. The agent will notify the
Corporation if a stockholder has failed to vote so that he or she may be
reminded and requested to do so.
 
     The Corporation intends to mail this Proxy Statement and proxy card,
together with the 1994 Annual Report to Stockholders, to the stockholders on
March 3, 1995. If a stockholder is a participant in the Corporation's Automatic
Dividend Reinvestment and Stock Purchase Plan, the proxy card represents the
number of full shares in the stockholder's account in such plan, as well as
shares registered in the stockholder's name.
 
     The Corporation also intends to mail this Proxy Statement, the 1994 Annual
Report to Stockholders and a voting instruction card, which is solicited on
behalf of the Board of Directors of the Corporation, on March 3, 1995 to each
participant in the Corporation's Salaried and Hourly Employees Incentive
Investment Plans. The trustee of the plans, Harris Trust and Savings Bank, as

<PAGE>   5
 
the stockholder of record of shares of the common stock of the Corporation held
in the plans, will vote whole shares of stock attributable to each participant's
interest in the plans in accordance with the directions such participant gives
on such voting instruction card.
 

PROPOSAL 1. ELECTION OF DIRECTORS
 
     The Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Corporation provides that
the Board of Directors shall consist of not less than 11 nor more than 25
members, as determined from time to time by the affirmative vote of a majority
of the entire Board of Directors, and that the Board shall be divided into three
classes. Directors of one class are elected each year for a term of three years.
As of the date of this Proxy Statement, the Board of Directors consists of 12
members, four of whom have terms which expire at this year's Annual Meeting
(Class of 1995), four of whom have terms which expire at the 1996 Annual Meeting
(Class of 1996), and four of whom have terms which expire at the 1997 Annual
Meeting (Class of 1997). Phala A. Helm, M.D., who is currently a director of the
Class of 1995, will not stand for re-election at this year's Annual Meeting. In
addition, James D. Bernd retired as a member of the Board of Directors and the
Class of 1996 effective February 17, 1995.
 
     Of the four nominees for director set forth on the following pages, Mrs.
Cafferty and Messrs. Gonzalez and Levy are currently directors of the Class of
1995. The four nominees are proposed to be elected at this year's Annual Meeting
to serve for a term to expire at the 1998 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (Class
of 1998) and until their successors are elected and have qualified. Should any
such nominee become unable to serve, proxies may be voted for another person
designated by management. All nominees have advised the Corporation that they
will serve if elected. The remaining eight directors will continue to serve as
directors for the terms set forth on the following pages, except that Mr. White
(a director of the Class of 1997) will reach the mandatory retirement age of 68
on August 2, 1995, at which time he plans to retire as a member of the Board of
Directors.
 
     Under Section 216 of the Delaware General Corporation Law and the
Corporation's By-laws, a majority of the shares of the Corporation's common
stock, present in person or represented by proxy, shall constitute a quorum for
purposes of the Annual Meeting. In all matters other than the election of
directors, the affirmative vote of the majority of shares present in person or
represented by proxy at the Annual Meeting and entitled to vote on the subject
matter shall be the act of the stockholders. Abstentions are treated as votes
against a proposal and broker non-votes have no effect on the vote. Directors
shall be elected by a plurality of the votes present in person or represented by
proxy at the Annual Meeting and entitled to vote on the election of directors.
 
CERTAIN INFORMATION REGARDING DIRECTORS AND NOMINEES
 
     The names of the directors continuing in office and nominees, their ages as
of the date of the Annual Meeting, the year each first became a director, their
principal occupations during at least the past five years, other directorships
held by each as of the date hereof and certain other biographical information
are as set forth on the following pages by Class, in the order of the next Class
to stand for election.

OTHER PRINCIPAL HOLDER OF VOTING SECURITIES
 
     As of December 31, 1994, the trustee of the Kimberly-Clark Corporation
Salaried Employees Incentive Investment Plan, Harris Trust and Savings Bank,
P.O. Box 755, Chicago, Illinois 60690 ("Harris Trust"), held 9,999,166 shares of

capacity as trustee of the Kimberly-Clark Hourly Employees Incentive Investment
Plan, Harris Trust held an additional 3,862,119 shares for the benefit of
participating employees, or 2.4 percent of the outstanding shares. Under the

                                        7

<PAGE>   11
 
participating employees, and shares for which no instructions are received will
be voted as determined by the committees which administer the plans (except in

duration. The trustee shares investment power with respect to all such shares.
The fees paid to Harris Trust in 1994 in its capacity as trustee of the plans
were $212,609.
 
CERTAIN TRANSACTIONS AND BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS
 
     In 1994, the Corporation and certain of its subsidiaries retained the legal
services of Sidley & Austin, Chicago, Illinois. Total fees paid in 1994 to
Sidley & Austin for services rendered to the Corporation and such subsidiaries
were $1,202,509. H. Blair White, a director of the Corporation, serves of
counsel to that firm. Management believes that the cost of services so rendered
by Sidley & Austin during 1994 was reasonable compared with the cost of
obtaining similar services from an unaffiliated third party. The Corporation and
certain of its subsidiaries expect to retain Sidley & Austin in 1995. (See
"Executive Compensation" below for a description of additional transactions and
business relationships.)
 
BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND COMMITTEES
 
     The Board of Directors met 10 times in 1994. All of the Directors attended
at least 75% of the total number of meetings of the Board and committees on
which they served, and the average attendance at such meetings was 96%.
 
     The standing committees of the Board include, among others, the Audit
Committee, the Compensation Committee and the Nominating Committee.
 
     The Audit Committee, currently composed of Mr. Levy, Chairman, Mr.
Bergstrom, Mr. McPherson and Mr. Schmitt, met three times during 1994. The
Committee selects, subject to stockholder approval, and engages independent
auditors to audit the books, records and accounts of the Corporation, determines
the scope of such audits, and establishes policy in connection with internal
audit programs of the Corporation.
 
     The Compensation Committee, currently composed of Mrs. Cafferty,
Chairperson, Mr. Collins and Mr. Tobias, met three times during 1994. The nature
and scope of the Committee's responsibilities are set forth below under
"Executive Compensation -- Board Compensation Committee Report on Executive
Compensation."
 
     The Nominating Committee, currently composed of Mr. White, Chairman, Mr.
Gonzalez and Dr. Helm, met twice during 1994. The Committee proposes and
considers suggestions for candidates for membership on the Board, and recommends
candidates to the Board to fill Board vacancies. It also proposes to the Board a
slate of directors for submission to the stockholders at the Annual Meeting.
 
STOCKHOLDER NOMINATIONS FOR DIRECTORS
 
     The Nominating Committee of the Board of Directors considers nominees
recommended by stockholders as candidates for election to the Board of Directors
at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders. A stockholder wishing to nominate a
candidate for election to the Board at the Annual Meeting is required to give
written notice to the Secretary of the Corporation of his or her intention to
make such a nomination. The notice of nomination must be received by the
Corporation not less than 50 days nor more than 75 days prior to the
stockholders' meeting, or if the Corporation gives less than 60 days' notice of
the meeting date, the notice of nomination must be received within 10 days after
the meeting date is announced. The notice of nomination is required to contain
certain information about both the nominee and the stockholder making the
nomination. The Corporation
 
                                        8

    BOARD COMPENSATION COMMITTEE REPORT ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
 
     The Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Corporation is
composed entirely of directors who are not, and have never been, officers or
employees of the Corporation. The Board designates the members and the
Chairperson of such committee. The Compensation Committee also constitutes the
stock option committee for the stock option plans of the Corporation with
respect to which information regarding stock option grants and exercise
transactions is disclosed in this Proxy Statement. In addition, the Compensation
Committee is responsible for establishing and administering the policies which
govern annual compensation and long-term incentive awards. The Compensation
Committee periodically evaluates the Corporation's compensation programs, and
compares them with those of other companies, both within the Corporation's peer
industry group and other large industrial companies.
 
     The companies which the Compensation Committee uses for making base salary
comparisons include some, but not all, of the companies appearing in the indexes
of the performance graph below. The first group used for comparison is composed
of 22 companies which have significant consumer businesses (the "Consumer
Company Group"), of which the Corporation is about median in terms of annual
sales and with which the Corporation competes in its businesses and/or for
executive talent. The second group used for comparison is composed of 135
industrial companies with annual sales exceeding $1 billion (the "Industrial
Company Group"), of which the Corporation is in about the 75th percentile in
terms thereof. Written salary information concerning the compensation practices
of these two groups of companies was provided to the Corporation by two
independent consultants.
 
     In determining the compensation to be paid to executive officers in 1994,
the Compensation Committee employed compensation policies designed to align such
compensation with the Corporation's overall business strategy, values and
management initiatives. Such policies are intended to (i) reward executives for
long-term strategic management and the enhancement of stockholder value through
stock option and long-term incentive awards, (ii) support a performance-oriented
environment that rewards achievement of internal company goals and recognizes
company per-
 
                                       10

<PAGE>   14
 
formance compared to the performance of similarly situated companies and of
other large industrial companies through the annual payment of cash bonuses, and
(iii) attract and retain executives whose abilities are considered essential to
the long-term success and competitiveness of the Corporation through the
Corporation's salary administration program.
 
     Salaries for 1994
 
     In determining base salaries of executive officers, the Compensation
Committee compares the executive officers' salaries to those for similar
positions in the two groups of companies referred to above, with primary
emphasis placed upon the Consumer Company Group so that the Committee may
compare data on specific salary levels for comparable positions. The
Compensation Committee's policy is to set executive officers' salaries at or
near the median salary level of such companies, with the salary of the Chief
Executive Officer set at or near the median salary level for chief executive
officers of the Consumer Company Group. In implementing such policy, the
Compensation Committee also considers the individual performance of the officer,
the performance of the unit over which the officer has responsibility (primarily
based upon the operating profit of such unit), the performance of the
Corporation (primarily based upon earnings per share and return on stockholders'
equity), and the officer's tenure. No specific weight is assigned to any
individual factor. Salary actions taken by the Compensation Committee with
respect to the executive officers in 1994 were consistent with the policies and
practices described above.
 
     Cash Bonus Awards for 1994
 
     The cash bonus awards for 1994 which are set forth in the Summary
Compensation Table were based on the Corporation's Management Achievement Award
Program. The Compensation Committee's policy is to provide opportunities to an
executive officer for cash bonuses under such program which, together with his
or her base salary, are within the third quartile (that quartile between the
50th and 75th percentile) of compensation for the Industrial Company Group if
such officer's goals have been fully met during the year. In determining such
target cash bonus awards, the Compensation Committee places primary emphasis on
data for the Industrial Company Group, as opposed to the Consumer Company Group,
because such data represents the performance based compensation practices of a
broadly based group of companies.
 
     Actual annual cash bonus awards are determined by measuring performance
against specific goals established at the beginning of each year. The goals take
into account, depending on the responsibility of the individual, one or more of
the following: the individual's performance; the performance of the functional
group or unit with which the individual is associated (primarily based upon the
operating profit of such unit); and the overall performance of the Corporation
(primarily based upon earnings per share and return on stockholders' equity). An
executive officer's goals are designed to reflect the relationship of his or her
responsibilities to the Corporation's long-term goal of maintaining a
sustainable annual return on average stockholders' equity of 20 percent (the
"Return on Equity Goal"). Such goals may or may not be equally weighted and will
vary from one executive officer to another. The opportunities for cash bonus
awards for the executive officers in 1994 were consistent with the policies and
practices described above. However, certain of the above described goals were
not fully satisfied for 1994 (primarily the earnings per share goal, largely as
a result of the Mexican peso devaluation in December 1994); therefore, the full
potential of such bonus awards for certain executive officers, and all of the
executive officers named in the Summary Compensation Table, was not realized in
1994.
 
     Based upon comparison of the most recent data provided by the independent
consultants described above, the cash bonuses paid to certain of the named
executive officers, taken together with base salaries, were near the median of
such compensation for comparable officers in the Industrial Company Group, and
such compensation paid to certain of the named executive officers was within the
third quartile of such peer group.
 
                                       11

<PAGE>   15
 
     Cash bonuses for 1994 were based entirely on corporate performance for four
of the five executive officers named in the Summary Compensation Table and
primarily on unit performance for one of the executive officers named in the
Summary Compensation Table, although, on a subjective basis, individual
performance also was a factor.
 
     Participation Shares and Stock Options
 
     The Corporation maintains the 1976 Equity Participation Plan, the 1986
Equity Participation Plan and the 1992 Equity Participation Plan (collectively,
the "Equity Plans"), pursuant to which stock option grants and long-term
incentive awards have been made to executive officers. The Equity Plans are
intended to provide a means of encouraging the acquisition of an ownership
interest in the Corporation by those employees, including executive officers,
who contribute materially by managerial, scientific or other innovative means to
the success of the Corporation, thereby increasing their motivation for and
interest in the Corporation's long-term success.
 
     Both the 1976 Equity Participation Plan and the 1986 Equity Participation
Plan have expired, and no additional awards can be made under such plans.
However, all awards outstanding on the expiration date of each such Equity Plan
remain in full force and effect in accordance with their respective terms.
 
     The number of long-term incentive or stock option awards granted to an
executive officer is based principally on such officer's position and the
compensation practices of the Consumer Company Group. The Compensation
Committee's policy is for the value of such awards, on an annualized basis, to
be within the third quartile with respect to similar awards made by the
companies comprising such group. In implementing such policy, the Compensation
Committee also considers the individual performance of the officer. The
Committee does not determine the size of such grants by reference to the amount
and value of awards currently held by an executive officer. However, the
Compensation Committee takes into account the timing and size of prior grants to
an executive officer. The payout resulting from any long-term incentive or stock
option award is based on the growth in the book value and market value,
respectively, of the Corporation's common stock subsequent to the grant of such
awards.
 
     The Equity Plans employ book value through the use of participation shares
and dividend shares, each of which, when awarded, is credited to a participant's
memorandum account. Pursuant to the Equity Plans, each participation share is
assigned a base value equal to the book value of one share of the Corporation's
common stock as of the close of the fiscal year immediately prior to the award.
Each share in a participant's account is assigned a dividend rate equal to the
rate declared on the Corporation's common stock. At the end of each fiscal
quarter the amount of such dividends is determined by multiplying the total cash
dividend declared per share of the Corporation's common stock during such
quarter by the total of the participation shares and dividend shares in the
participant's account. Such amount, when divided by the book value of one share
of the Corporation's common stock at the close of such fiscal quarter, is the
number of dividend shares credited to a participant's account for such quarter.
 
     However, the plans provide that no dividend shares will be credited to a
participant's account in any quarter in which the total cash dividends per share
of common stock are (i) less than $.31 in the case of the 1986 Equity
Participation Plan and $.41 in the case of the 1992 Equity Participation Plan or
(ii) less than the total cash dividends per share of common stock for the same
quarter of the immediately preceding year. In addition, in any quarter in which
the dividend is reduced, the book value of the participation shares will be
reduced by the amount that retained earnings benefited from such reduction in
the dividend.
 
     The normal maturity date of a participation share award will be the close
of the fiscal year in which the fifth or seventh anniversary of the date of the
award occurs. Within 90 days after such maturity date, the participant is
entitled to receive a cash payment equal to the sum of (i) the increase (if any)
in book value of the participation shares on the maturity date of the award over
the
 
                                       12

<PAGE>   16
 
base value of such shares, and (ii) the book value of the dividend shares on the
maturity date (equal to the book value of an equivalent number of shares of the
Corporation's common stock).
 
     Pursuant to amendments to the 1992 Equity Participation Plan which have
been approved by the Board of Directors and are being recommended to the
stockholders for their approval at the Annual Meeting, the book value for
purposes of awards made pursuant to such plan shall be adjusted to exclude the
effect of stock repurchases and changes in the Corporation's accounting policies
which affect the Corporation's net income, book value, shares of common stock
outstanding or stockholders' equity. In addition, the proposed amendments
provide that up to 50 percent of the payment of matured participation share
awards may be made in the form of Corporation common stock. See "Proposal 3.
Approval of Amendments to the 1992 Equity Participation Plan" and Exhibit A to
the Proxy Statement for additional information concerning such amendments.
 
     The Equity Plans also employ market value as a basis for rewarding
performance through the use of tax-qualified and nonqualified stock options. The
Equity Plans provide that the option price per share shall be no less than 100
percent of the market value per share of the Corporation's common stock at the
date of grant. The term of any option is no more than 10 years from the date of
grant. Options granted become exercisable 30 percent after the first year
following the grant thereof, an additional 30 percent after the second year and
the remaining 40 percent after the third year; provided however, that all such
options become exercisable upon the death, total and permanent disability, or
retirement of the officer and options granted under certain foreign regulations
become 100 percent exercisable after three years.
 
     No stock options or long-term incentive awards were granted to any
executive officer during 1994. In 1995, grants of stock options and long-term
incentive awards, some of which were larger than normal to certain executive
officers, including the Chief Executive Officer, were made, subject to
stockholder approval of amendments to the 1992 Equity Participation Plan. See
"Proposal 3. Approval of Amendments to the 1992 Equity Participation Plan."
 
     1994 Compensation of the Chief Executive Officer
 
     The Compensation Committee based the 1994 compensation of the Chief
Executive Officer on the policies and practices described above. The
Compensation Committee increased Mr. Sanders' salary in 1994 to a level which it
believed was consistent with his responsibilities, his performance towards
attaining the Corporation's Return on Equity Goal, and the levels of chief
executive officer compensation reported by the Consumer Company Group. Based
upon comparison of the data provided by the independent consultants described
above, Mr. Sanders' salary in 1994 was within the second quartile of salary
levels of the chief executive officers of the Consumer Company Group.
 
     The cash bonus which was paid to Mr. Sanders for 1994 was primarily in
recognition of the progress, as determined by the members of the Board of
Directors who are not officers or employees of the Corporation or any of its
subsidiaries or equity companies, made by the Corporation during the year toward
attaining the Corporation's Return on Equity Goal. On an objective basis, a
principal factor in making such determination was the fact that, although the
Corporation had a return on average stockholders' equity of 21.2% for 1994 and
net income improved 4.7% from 1993, the Corporation did not meet the earnings
per share goal established by the Board of Directors, largely as a result of the
Mexican peso devaluation in December 1994. Based upon comparison of the most
recent data provided by the independent consultants described above, the cash
bonus paid to Mr. Sanders for 1994, taken together with his base salary, was
near the median of such compensation paid to chief executive officers of the
Industrial Company Group.
 
     The Compensation Committee believes that executive compensation for 1994
adequately reflects its policy to align such compensation with overall business
strategy, values and management initiatives, and to ensure that the
Corporation's goals and performance are consistent with the interests of its
stockholders.

     Tax Deduction for Executive Compensation
 
     The Committee has determined that it is not in the stockholders' interests
to modify the Corporation's Management Achievement Award Program plan to enable
the Corporation to meet the requirements of the federal tax code provisions
which limit to $1 million the deductibility of annual cash compensation paid to
any executive officer named in the Summary Compensation Table for corporate
income tax purposes. The Committee believes that it is in the stockholders'
interest for the Committee to retain discretion in the awarding of cash bonuses
to such officers to better ensure that the bonus which is paid to each such
officer reflects the officer's contribution to the achievement of the
Corporation's Return on Equity Goal and long-term strategic goals.
 
     However, the Corporation has adopted a deferred compensation plan in
response to such limitations on executive compensation deductibility which
allows each executive officer to defer all or a portion of his or her bonus, and
all salary in excess of $1 million, for any fiscal year. Such plan would
therefore permit such officers to limit their annual cash compensation to the $1
million limitation which may be deducted by the Corporation for federal income
tax purposes. Such deferral will result in the possible deduction by the
Corporation of such compensation when paid; however, there is no obligation on
any executive officer to defer any such amounts during any fiscal year. The
Corporation has determined that the impact to the Corporation of being unable to
deduct that portion of the cash bonus paid to such officers which, together with
their annual salary, exceeds $1 million will be minimal. In 1994, the Chief
Executive Officer elected to defer all amounts of his salary and bonus in excess
of $1 million.
 
     Furthermore, in order to maximize the deductibility of the compensation
paid to the Corporation's executive officers, the Board of Directors has
adopted, and is seeking stockholder approval of, certain amendments to the 1992
Equity Participation Plan. Such amendments are designed to ensure that
compensation resulting from the exercise of stock options and payments made in
connection with participation share awards will be fully deductible. For further
information on such proposed amendments, see Proposal 3, below. 1994
compensation resulting from payments made in connection with participation share
awards is fully deductible by the Corporation and is not subject to the $1
million deduction limitation.

* The Corporation has elected to replace the S&P Paper & Forest Products and the
  S&P Household Products Groups with a Peer Group constructed by the Corporation
  as the industry index for purposes of the performance graph. The Peer Group
  consists of 13 companies, all of which are in the consumer products and paper
  industries. The Corporation believes that the Peer Group provides a more
  representative group of companies in the consumer products industry than does
  the S&P Household Products Group, which is comprised of four companies, all of
  which are included in the Peer Group. The companies included in the Peer Group
  are The Clorox Co., Colgate-Palmolive Company, James River Corp, Johnson &
  Johnson, Paragon Trade Brands, Inc., Pope & Talbot, Inc., The Procter & Gamble
  Company, Scott Paper Company, Tambrands Inc., The Unilever Group, Champion
  International, International Paper Company and Mead Corp.
 
     COMPENSATION COMMITTEE INTERLOCKS AND INSIDER PARTICIPATION
 
     During 1994, the following Directors served, and currently are serving, as
members of the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the
Corporation: Pastora San Juan Cafferty, Chairperson; Paul J. Collins; and
Randall L. Tobias. In addition, John F. Bergstrom served as a member and
Chairman of the Compensation Committee from January 1, 1994 until April 21,
1994.
 
     The Corporation paid $1,396,000 to Bergstrom Corporation in 1994 for hotel,
lodging, and automobile rental and purchasing costs. John F. Bergstrom and
Richard A. Bergstrom, his brother, own 75 percent and 25 percent, respectively,
of Bergstrom Corporation. In addition, the Corporation leases office space in
Neenah and Menasha, Wisconsin from Neenah Downtown Redevelopment Associates
Limited Partnership and Downtown Menasha Associates Limited Partnership,
respectively, two partnerships engaged in the redevelopment of downtown real
estate in such cities. John F. Bergstrom owns a 15% limited partner interest in
each such partnership. During 1994, rental
 
                                       15

<PAGE>   19
 
payments made by the Corporation to such partnerships totaled $631,000 and
$113,530, respectively.
 
     During 1994, K-C Aviation Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the
Corporation, serviced and managed a corporate aircraft owned by Bergstrom
Pioneer Auto and Truck Leasing ("Bergstrom Leasing"), which is a wholly owned
subsidiary of Bergstrom Corporation. In addition, during 1994, the Corporation
provided certain pilot services to Bergstrom Corporation with respect to such
aircraft. The total fees paid in 1994 to K-C Aviation Inc. and the Corporation
by Bergstrom Leasing and Bergstrom Corporation for such services rendered were
$582,000.
 
     Management believes that the amounts charged and paid in connection with
the foregoing arrangements were reasonable compared with the amounts which would
be charged and paid for similar services or products from an unaffiliated third
party. The Corporation and K-C Aviation Inc. expect to engage in similar
transactions with Bergstrom Corporation, Bergstrom Leasing and the two
partnerships in 1995.
 
     Wayne R. Sanders, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of the
Corporation, serves as a member of the compensation committee of the board of
directors of Kimberly-Clark de Mexico, S.A. de C.V. Claudio X. Gonzalez,
Chairman of the Board and Managing Director of Kimberly-Clark de Mexico, S.A. de
C.V., serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Corporation.

</TABLE>

 
 
     The compensation covered by the Corporation's defined benefit plan for
which the above table is provided includes the salary and bonus information set
forth in the Summary Compensation Table. The estimated years of benefit service,
as of normal retirement at age 65, for the executive officers named in the
Summary Compensation Table are: James D. Bernd, 38.4 years; Thomas J. Falk, 40.0
years; James G. Grosklaus, 42.7 years; James T. McCauley, 34.7 years; and Wayne
R. Sanders, 37.1 years. Under the plan, an employee is entitled to receive an
annual standard benefit based on years of benefit service and subject, in some
cases, to deduction for social security benefits. Benefits under the plan will
be limited to the extent required by the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as
amended, with excess benefits over such limitation being paid pursuant to
supplemental plans. While such supplemental plans remain unfunded, in 1994 the
Board of Directors approved the establishment of a trust and authorized the
Corporation to make contributions to such trust in order to provide a source of
funds to assist the Corporation in meeting its liabilities under the plans. Each
of the executive officers named in the Summary Compensation Table is a
participant in such supplemental plans.
 
                                       16

<PAGE>   20
 
     Retirement benefits for participants who have at least five years of
vesting service may begin on a reduced basis at age 55, or on an unreduced basis
at normal retirement age. Unreduced benefits also are available for participants
with 10 years of vesting service at age 62 or as early as age 60 with 30 years
of vesting service. The normal form of benefit is a single-life annuity payable
monthly. Benefits will be actuarially adjusted if the employee receives one of
the available forms of joint and survivor or other optional forms of benefit. In
addition, each participant in the supplemental plans has the option of receiving
an actuarially determined lump sum payment upon retirement after age 55 in lieu
of the monthly payments which otherwise would be payable to such participant
under such plans. Further, in the event of a change of control of the
Corporation or a reduction in the Corporation's long-term credit rating below
investment grade, each such participant would have the option of receiving the
present value of his or her accrued benefits in such plans at such time in a
lump sum, reduced by 10% and 5% for active and retired employees, respectively.
 
     EXECUTIVE SEVERANCE PLAN
 
     The Corporation's Executive Severance Plan provides that in the event of
termination of a participant's employment with the Corporation for any reason
(other than death or disability) within two years after a change of control of
the Corporation, as defined in the plan, the participant will receive a cash
payment in an amount equal to the sum of (i) three times base salary and the
maximum management achievement award, and (ii) the value of unmatured or
unexercised awards or grants and nonvested benefits under the Corporation's
Equity Participation Plans and the Salaried Employees Incentive Investment Plan
and successor plans. The plan also provides for monthly supplemental retirement
benefits equal to those that would have accrued had employment continued for an
additional three years, for certain relocation costs, and for the continuation
of certain other benefits for varying periods of up to three years. The Board
has determined the eligibility criteria for participation in the plan. A
participant ceases to be a participant in the plan when notified by the Board
that it has determined that such participant has ceased to be a key executive
for purposes of the plan. The Corporation has agreements under the plan with
each executive officer who is named in the Summary Compensation Table. The
maximum amounts payable pursuant to agreements under the plan to such executive
officers, assuming that a change of control of the Corporation and the
termination of employment of such officers had occurred on December 31, 1994,
would have been: James D. Bernd, $3,518,666; Thomas J. Falk $2,402,335; James G.
Grosklaus, $4,267,012; James T. McCauley, $3,229,399; and Wayne R. Sanders,
$9,309,831.
 

     COMPENSATION OF DIRECTORS
 
     Directors who are not officers or employees of the Corporation or any of
its subsidiaries, affiliates or equity companies receive an annual retainer of
$35,000 payable pro rata quarterly in advance, and a daily attendance fee of
$1,200 for each day or fraction thereof spent in attendance at a meeting of the
Board or any committee thereof, subject to a maximum of $3,600 for any day on
which more than one such meeting is held. Such directors also receive a fee of
$2,000 per day, subject to a maximum of $72,000 per calendar year, for the
independent performance of services for the benefit of the Corporation or its
affiliates, other than services which were related to meetings of the Board or
any committee thereof, which are requested by the Board, any committee thereof
or the Chief Executive Officer. In addition, the Corporation reimburses such
directors for expenses incurred as a result of attending such meetings or
performing such services. A director who is an officer or an employee of the
Corporation or any of its subsidiaries, affiliates or equity companies does not
receive any fees for services as a member of the Board or any committee thereof,
but is reimbursed for expenses incurred as a result of such service.
 
     Under the deferred compensation plan for directors of the Corporation,
directors who are not officers or employees of the Corporation or any of its
subsidiaries, affiliates or equity companies may make an irrevocable election to
defer receipt of all or a portion of their annual retainer and meeting fees for
any year. Compensation of a director that is deferred under the plan is credited
 
                                       17

<PAGE>   21
 
either to a cash account or a stock account of such director, as provided in
such election. Amounts allocated to a cash account are converted into cash
credits and will earn additional cash credits at a rate of six percent or of
that equivalent to the rate paid from time to time on six-month U.S. Treasury
Bills, whichever is higher. Amounts allocated to a stock account are converted
into stock credits equal to the number of shares of common stock of the
Corporation which could have been purchased with such amounts. A participant's
stock account also is credited with additional stock credits based on the amount
of any dividends that are paid on the Corporation's common stock. Cash credits
and stock credits are converted to and paid in cash at the time of distribution
on the date fixed by a participant at the time of election, and with respect to
stock credits, based on the price of a share of common stock of the Corporation.
Stock credits are not shares of stock, no shares of the Corporation's common
stock are ever distributed to a participant under the plan, and no participant
acquires any rights as a holder of common stock under the plan. All accounts are
distributed in one to 10 annual installments, as fixed by the participant in the
election to defer.
 
 
    THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS A VOTE FOR THE ELECTION OF
THE FOUR NOMINEES FOR DIRECTOR.
 
P
ROPOSAL 2. APPROVAL OF AUDITOR
 
     The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors has selected, and the Board
of Directors has approved, Deloitte & Touche as the principal independent
auditor to audit the financial statements of the Corporation for 1995, subject
to ratification by the stockholders. If the stockholders do not approve the
selection of Deloitte & Touche, the selection of another independent auditor
will be considered by the Audit Committee. Deloitte & Touche, and one of its
predecessor firms, Deloitte Haskins & Sells, have been independent auditors for
the Corporation since its incorporation in 1928.
 
     Representatives of Deloitte & Touche are expected to be present at the
Annual Meeting with the opportunity to make a statement if they desire to do so,
and will be available to respond to appropriate questions.
 
 
    THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS A VOTE FOR APPROVAL OF THIS
SELECTION.
 

PROPOSAL 3. APPROVAL OF AMENDMENTS TO THE 1992 EQUITY
            PARTICIPATION PLAN
 
     The Corporation's 1992 Equity Participation Plan (the "Plan") was approved
by the stockholders at the 1992 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. The Board of
Directors has approved and recommends to stockholders for their approval certain
amendments to the Plan. The primary purpose of the amendments is to comply with
r
ecent changes to the Internal Revenue Code in order to preserve for the
Corporation the tax deduction for compensation paid pursuant to the Plan. Other
amendments to the Plan are being proposed to take into consideration certain
recommendations of an independent consultant concerning the Corporation's
executive compensation program.
 
     The principal features of the Plan, as proposed to be amended, and the
relevant proposed amendments are summarized below. The full text of the Plan, as
amended and restated, is set forth as Exhibit A to this Proxy Statement, which
you are urged to read carefully.
 
THE PLAN
 
     The Plan is administered by the Compensation Committee of the Board of
Directors. The Committee will from time to time select participants, determine
the extent of participation and make all other necessary decisions and
interpretations under the Plan.
 
     The Plan employs long-term incentive compensation based on the growth in
the book value of the Corporation's common stock through the use of
participation shares. The Plan also employs market value as a basis for
rewarding performance through the use of tax-qualified and non-qualified stock
options. For a description of such participation shares and stock options, see
 
                                       18

<PAGE>   22
 
"Executive Compensation -- Board Compensation Committee Report on Executive
Compensation -- Participation Shares and Stock Options."
 
     As approved by the stockholders in 1992, the Plan makes available the
equivalent of 10,000,000 shares (which shall be adjusted for stock dividends,
stock splits or other corporate changes) of the Corporation's common stock for
participation share and stock option awards. At December 31, 1994, approximately
7,397,500 of such shares remained available for future grants. Participation
shares which are retired through forfeiture or maturity and shares subject to
options which become ineligible for purchase will be available for awards under
the Plan to the extent permitted by Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934, as amended (or the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder), and to
the extent determined to be appropriate by the Committee.
 
     Eligibility to participate in the Plan is limited to employees (including
officers and directors who are also employees) of the Corporation and any
company in which the Corporation owns at least 20% of the equity interest. In
order to be eligible, an employee must be determined by the Compensation
Committee either to be in a position to contribute materially to the success of
the Corporation or its affiliates or to have in the past so contributed. The
current eligible group consists of approximately 500 persons, including all of
those named in the Summary Compensation Table. It is impossible to determine the
exact number of persons who will be eligible under the Plan during its term
because the selection of participants is a discretionary decision of the
Compensation Committee.
 
     The Committee may amend the Plan to the extent permitted by law, Section 16
of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (including the rules and
regulations promulgated thereunder), section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code
and the rules of any stock exchange on which the Corporation's common stock is
listed. To the extent that the foregoing requires stockholder approval of any
such amendment, the Committee may amend the Plan subject to stockholder
approval.
 
     Under the Internal Revenue Code, optionees will realize no taxable income
as a result of the grant of options. While exercise of an incentive stock option
which meets the requirements of the Internal Revenue Code will not result in
taxable income (except that the alternative minimum tax may apply), exercise of
a nonqualified stock option will result in taxable income to the extent of the
difference between the fair market value of the stock at the time of exercise
and the exercise price. The Corporation will be entitled to a tax deduction upon
the exercise of a nonqualified option in the amount equal to the optionee's
taxable income. If the optionee sells the shares acquired on exercise of
incentive stock options more than two years after the grant date and more than
one year after exercise, the entire gain, if any, realized upon the sale will be
taxable to the optionee as long-term capital gain. If the optionee does not
satisfy the holding period requirements, the optionee will realize ordinary
income, in most cases equal to the difference between the exercise price of the
shares and the lesser of the fair market value of the shares on the exercise
date or the amount realized on a sale or exchange of the shares, and the
Corporation will be entitled to a corresponding tax deduction.
 
THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS
 
     The following amendments, together with certain non-material technical
amendments and conforming changes, are proposed in order to ensure that
compensation resulting from the exercise of stock options and payments made in
connection with participation share awards will be fully deductible by the
Corporation and to take into consideration certain recommendations of an
independent consultant concerning the Corporation's executive compensation
program. Non-material technical amendments, including certain changes to
provisions of the Plan to take into account proposed action of the Securities
and Exchange Commission concerning the rules promulgated under Section 16 of the
Securities Exchange Act, are not summarized herein.

     PARTICIPATION SHARE ADJUSTMENTS
 
     The Board of Directors has approved various amendments that restrict the
discretion of the Compensation Committee to make certain adjustments to
participation shares which have been awarded. Specifically, the amendments to
the Plan eliminate the Compensation Committee's ability to adjust book value for
purposes of the Plan in the event of certain unusual or extraordinary
transactions or events that materially affect the Corporation's net income, book
value, shares of common stock outstanding or stockholders' equity. Rather, the
amendments to the Plan provide that book value shall be adjusted automatically
to exclude the effects of stock repurchases, or changes in the Corporation's
accounting policies, with discretion on the part of the Compensation Committee
only to waive any exclusion that would have the effect of increasing book value
for purposes of the Plan (to the extent permitted by the tax regulations).
 
     LIMIT ON INDIVIDUAL GRANTS
 
     The amendments to the Plan provide that the maximum number of participation
shares or shares of common stock covered by options which may be granted to any
participant within any two consecutive calendar year period shall not exceed
500,000 in the aggregate.
 
     PARTICIPATION SHARE PAYMENTS
 
     The Plan currently provides that the payment of matured participation share
awards is made solely in cash. The amendments to the Plan provide that the
payment of matured participation share awards, and related dividend shares, may
be in either cash or a combination of cash and Corporation common stock, as
determined by the Compensation Committee at the time the award is granted. As
amended, the Plan allows up to 50 percent of such payment to be made in the form
of Corporation common stock. However, if sufficient shares are not available
under the Plan at the time of payment, payment would be settled in common stock
only to the extent shares are available under the Plan, with the remainder
settled in cash.
 
     EXERCISE OF OPTIONS AFTER RETIREMENT
 
     The Plan currently provides that a participant may exercise options only
within three years from the date of retirement or for the remaining period of
the option whichever is shorter. The proposed amendment to the Plan provides
that if a participant retires without having exercised the option in full, the
remaining portion of the option may be exercised without regard to the
three-year limitation, to the extent permitted by the Compensation Committee
upon the grant of the option.
 
NEW PLAN BENEFITS
 
     On February 16, 1995, stock options were granted and participation shares
were awarded under the Plan, subject to the approval of the amended Plan by the
Corporation's stockholders at the Annual Meeting. The following table sets forth
the option grants and participation share awards that the individuals and groups
referred to below will receive in 1995 if the amended Plan is approved by the
Corporation's stockholders at the Annual Meeting.

- ---------------
 
(1) Stock options, which generally vest over a three-year period and expire on
    February 15, 2005, were granted at $51 per share (the fair market value of
    the Corporation's common stock on February 16, 1995). The dollar value of
    the options granted depends upon the future market price of the
    Corporation's common stock and therefore is not presently determinable. No
    nominee for election as a director and no associate of any director,
    executive officer or nominee received any options pursuant to the above
    grant. In addition, no other person received or is to receive five percent
    or more of such options.
 
(2) The Compensation Committee has determined that the participation shares
    awarded will be paid 50 percent in cash and 50 percent in shares of the
    Corporation's common stock. As described in "Executive Compensation -- Board
    Compensation Committee Report on Executive Compensation -- Participation
    Shares and Stock Options," the dollar amount of such payout is dependent
    upon the growth in the book value of the Corporation's common stock. Such
    amount therefore is not presently determinable. The book value per share of
    the Corporation's common stock at December 31, 1994, which is the base value
    for purposes of the above awards, was $16.20.
 
     Certain of the above grants and awards were larger than the normal amount
which would have been granted under Compensation Committee policy as described
in "Executive Compensation -- Board Compensation Committee Report on Executive
Compensation -- Participation Shares and Stock Options." The larger than normal
grants and awards, which were made in order to retain and motivate current and
future senior management, to recognize recent promotions and to more closely
align the compensation of senior management with stockholder value, are intended
to be a one-time occurrence. The size of the larger than normal grants to
certain employees, including the Chief Executive Officer, were determined on the
basis of the subjective judgment of the Committee following deliberations by the
Committee and consultation with an independent consultant.
 
     The above larger than normal grant to the Chief Executive Officer was
primarily due to the Compensation Committee's determination, and the Chief
Executive Officer's desire, that his overall long-term compensation should be
more heavily weighted toward stockholder value. In determining to make this
larger than normal grant, the Compensation Committee was influenced by the trend
among comparable companies to make chief executive officer compensation more
dependent upon stockholder value, primarily through long-term incentives such as
stock options. The above grant was made partially in lieu of future increases in
the base salary of the Chief Executive Officer, which the Compensation Committee
intends not to review for a period of at least two years subsequent to an
increase in base salary effective January 1, 1995 (such increase was consistent
with the policy described in the Compensation Committee Report above).
Furthermore, based upon information provided by an independent consultant, and
taking into consideration the timing and size of prior grants to the Chief
Executive Officer, the Committee determined that a one-time larger than normal
grant of stock options and participation shares would provide a level and mix of
compensation more focused on stockholder value and consistent with comparable
companies.

GENERAL/VOTE REQUIRED
 
     The closing quotation of the common stock of the Corporation on February
22, 1995, as reported in the Wall Street Journal Listing of Composite
Transactions, was $50.25 per share.
 
     A favorable vote by the holders of a majority of the Company's common stock
present, or represented, and voting at the Annual Meeting is required to approve
the foregoing amendments to the Plan.
 
     THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS A VOTE FOR APPROVAL OF THE
AMENDMENTS TO THE 1992 EQUITY PARTICIPATION PLAN.
 
STOCKHOLDER PROPOSAL
 
     Stockholder proponents identified below have stated their intention to
introduce the following proposal at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders. The
Corporation will promptly furnish the addresses of the stockholder proponent and
co-proponent of the proposal, and the number of shares of the Corporation's
common stock held by each such stockholder, to any person who requests, orally
or in writing, such information.
 
     The Board of Directors opposes the following stockholder proposal for the
reasons set forth below the proposal.
 
     Proxies solicited by management will be voted against the stockholder
proposal set forth below unless stockholders specify a contrary choice in their
proxies. The affirmative vote of a majority of the shares present or represented
at the meeting is required to approve the stockholder proposal.
 

PROPOSAL 4. STOCKHOLDER PROPOSAL REGARDING TOBACCO-RELATED BUSINESSES
 
     The Redemptorists/St. Louis Province has advised the Corporation that it
intends to introduce the resolution set forth below at the meeting. The
Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word has advised the
Corporation that it intends to co-sponsor such resolution at the meeting.
 
          WHEREAS, in the 1995 Global Tobacco Industry Guide, an ad from
     Kimberly-Clark stated that the Company has "a rock solid commitment to the
     tobacco industry." Our Company manufactures here and abroad cigarette
     paper, porous plug wrap paper, conventional plug wrap paper, tipping base
     papers, reconstituted cigarette tobacco, and reconstituted cigar wrapper
     and binders;
 
          -- Many institutional investors believe tobacco-related companies
     would produce better financial returns if their tobacco businesses were
     separated from their other businesses;
 
          -- Some institutional investors have been uneasy about [cigarette
     companies'] potential legal liability for the health problems of smokers,
     and think that such problems have depressed the share price of tobacco
     companies' stock (The New York Times 9/22/94);
 
          -- The State of West Virginia has included our Company on the list of
     those it is suing to recover millions of dollars in health care costs,
     accusing the company of developing a process that lets cigarette
     manufacturers manipulate nicotine levels;
 
          -- Increased litigation coming from states and private insurers
     indicate new and ominous challenges that might undermine the value of the
     stock. The stock value might be increased if the tobacco divisions were
     separated from the other divisions;
 
          -- A consumer boycott of Philip Morris' and RJR Nabisco's products has
     been launched by INFACT, a consumer activist group. It successfully brought
     infant formula companies to change their practices and General Electric to
     sell a good portion of its nuclear weapons business. Among INFACT's demands
     to end the boycott include the companies' need to stop marketing to
 
                                       22

<PAGE>   26
 
     children and young people, stop influencing public policy and pay its just
     share of health care costs associated with tobacco use;
 
          -- There is likelihood that our Company's products may be boycotted
     because of our position in the tobacco business;
 
             RESOLVED, that shareholders ask management to take steps to
        accomplish a separation of the Corporation's tobacco business from all
        its non-tobacco business by January 1, 1996.
 
PROPONENT'S SUPPORTING STATEMENT
 
     About two percent of our Company's sales are related to various activities
in the tobacco business here and abroad. A Company officer served on "TABEXPO
1994," an exhibition in Vienna for the global tobacco industry. As proponents of
this resolution, we feel a Company such as ours which has made a name for itself
in its health-care related products undermines that name by such executive and
institutional involvement of our Company in tobacco. We are ashamed that our
Company brags that its commitment to the tobacco industry is "rock solid." A
spin-off might not only help preserve the Company's assets from further
litigation; it will also preserve its good reputation, especially in the health
care industry.
 
RESPONSE OF THE CORPORATION
 
     The Board of Directors (the "Board") unanimously recommends that the
s
tockholders support the Board and vote against this proposal.
 
     The Board and management have reviewed and considered the issues related to
the tobacco products businesses of the Corporation on numerous occasions over
the years. Partially as a result of those deliberations, in December 1990, the
Board adopted a Fundamental Policy and related comment on Corporate
Responsibility and Citizenship (the "Policy"). The Policy articulates the
Board's views on the role which social concerns should play in the Board's and
management's business decisions, and on the responsibilities of the government,
as opposed to private businesses, in establishing basic social policy for the
country. A copy of the Policy is attached as Exhibit B to this proxy statement,
and the Board urges each stockholder to read it carefully.
 
     The Board periodically reviews each of the Corporation's businesses to
determine their ability to meet the Corporation's long-term strategic objectives
within the framework articulated in the Policy. Those businesses that cannot
fulfill the Corporation's long-term objectives may become candidates for
divestiture. The Board has examined the tobacco-related businesses and the value
of these businesses to the Corporation and its stockholders. After taking into
account all legitimate interests, the Board has concluded that a commitment to
comply with the proponent's proposal would have an adverse effect on the
economic return to the stockholders of the Corporation and that, for this reason
and the reasons discussed below, it would be inappropriate to make such a
commitment. However, the Board will continue to examine these businesses to
ensure that they meet the Corporation's long-term strategic objectives.
 
     The Board also wishes to point out that the divestment of the Corporation's
tobacco-related businesses would not prevent or limit society's use of tobacco
products, because selling the businesses would not eliminate or reduce the
supply of the products which the Corporation manufactures.
 
     Furthermore, the Board believes that individuals, within the limitations
established by society, have the right to decide whether or not to use tobacco
products. The Board also believes that, as articulated in the Policy, it is the
responsibility of government, not the Corporation, to establish social policy
concerning the use of tobacco products.
 
                                       23

<PAGE>   27
 
     For the reasons discussed above, the Board unanimously recommends that the
stockholders support the Board and vote against Proposal 4. A proxy granted to
management will be voted against Proposal 4 unless the applicable box on the
proxy card is specifically marked in favor or to abstain.
 
     THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS A VOTE AGAINST THE ADOPTION
OF THIS PROPOSAL.
 
1996 STOCKHOLDER PROPOSALS
 
     Proposals by stockholders for inclusion in the Corporation's 1996 Proxy
Statement and form of proxy for the Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held in
1996 should be addressed to the Secretary, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, P.O. Box
619100, Dallas, Texas 75261-9100, and must be received at such address no later
than November 4, 1995. Upon receipt of any such proposal, the Corporation will
determine whether or not to include such proposal in the Proxy Statement and
proxy in accordance with applicable law. It is suggested that such proposals be
forwarded by certified mail - return receipt requested.
 
OTHER MATTERS
 
     The management of the Corporation knows of no other matters to be presented
at the meeting. Should any other matter requiring a vote of the stockholders
arise at the meeting, the persons named in the proxy will vote the proxies in
accordance with their best judgment.
 
                                            By order of the Board of Directors.

     All Awards under the Plan shall be made in the form of Participation Shares
or Options. The Committee may make Awards solely in Options or Participation
Shares, or in any combination of the two. Notwithstanding anything in this Plan
to the contrary, any Awards shall contain the restriction on assignability in
subsection 15(f) of this Plan to the extent required under rule 16b-3 of the
Exchange Act.
 
7. PARTICIPATION SHARES
 
     The Committee shall from time to time designate those Participants who
shall receive Participation Share awards. The Committee shall advise such
Participants of their Participation Share awards by a letter indicating the
number of Participation Shares awarded and the following terms and conditions of
the award.
 
          (a) Base Value of Participation Shares. The number of Participation
     Shares awarded to a Participant shall be entered in such Participant's
     memorandum account (the "Account") established for this purpose as of the
     date of the award. Each Participation Share shall be assigned a base value
     equal to the book value of one share of Common Stock as of the close of the
     fiscal year of the Corporation preceding the date of the award (the "Base
     Value"). Book value per share shall be defined for purposes of the Plan as
     common stockholders' equity, as reported in the year-end audited
     consolidated financial statements, or in the quarter-end unaudited
     consolidated financial statements, of the Corporation (as the case may be),
     divided by the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding as of the date
     of such financial statements, as adjusted pursuant to the provisions of the
     Plan (the "Book Value"). The term "book value", when used without initial
     capital letters, shall be defined as in the preceding sentence without the
     adjustments.
 
                                       A-3

<PAGE>   31
 
          (b) Maturation of Participation Shares. An Award of Participation
     Shares shall reach maturity at the close of the fiscal year (i) in which
     either the fifth or seventh anniversary, as determined by the Committee
     when the Award is granted, of the date the Award occurs, (ii) the
     Participant who holds such Award dies, Retires, or becomes Totally and
     Permanently Disabled, or (iii) the events described in subsection 9(a)
     occur, whichever is earlier (the "Maturity Date"). The Book Value at the
     Maturity Date shall be the Book Value as of the close of the fiscal year of
     the Corporation in which such Maturity Date occurs.
 
          (c) Participation Share Payments. Each Participant shall be entitled
     to receive a payment equal to the sum of the Maturity Value and the
     Dividend Share Value for his or her Participation Share award, payable as
     provided in subsection 7(g). Such payment shall be payable either in cash,
     or partly in cash and up to 50% in Common Stock, as determined by the
     Committee when the Award is granted. Such payment in Common Stock shall be
     payable in the number of shares of Common Stock that could have been
     purchased with the amount equal to the sum of the Maturity Value and the
     Dividend Share Value for that portion of his or her Participation Share
     award which is payable in Common Stock, at the average of the Fair Market
     Value of shares of Common Stock on each business day during the month
     immediately preceding the month of such payment. A Participation Share
     award shall only be paid in Common Stock as provided above to the extent
     shares of Common Stock are available under section 10 hereof, with the
     remainder settled in cash. To the extent shares of Common Stock are not
     fully available under section 10 hereof to fully pay such portion of the
     Award in shares of Common Stock then the available shares of Common Stock
     shall be paid on a pro rata basis, with the remainder settled in cash.
 
          The "Maturity Value" of an Award of Participation Shares shall be
     equal to the Book Value of the Participation Shares subject to such Award
     at the Maturity Date less the Base Value of such Participation Shares.
 
          Participants are not entitled to receive current dividends on their
     Participation Shares, but in lieu thereof their Accounts shall be credited
     with dividend shares (the "Dividend Shares"). The "Dividend Share Value" of
     an award shall be equal to the product of (A) the number of Dividend Shares
     credited to a Participant's Account and (B) the Book Value per share of the
     Common Stock at the Maturity Date. The amount available for the acquisition
     of Dividend Shares for a Participant's Account at the end of each fiscal
     quarter of the Corporation shall be determined by multiplying the total
     cash dividend declared per share of Common Stock during such quarter (but
     subsequent to the date of the award in the case of Participation Shares and
     subsequent to the date of crediting in the case of Dividend Shares) by the
     total of the Participation Shares and Dividend Shares in the Participant's
     Account. The amount so determined shall be divided by the Book Value of one
     share of Common Stock as of the close of such fiscal quarter, and the
     quotient shall represent the number of full and fractional Dividend Shares
     credited to the Participant's Account for that quarter.
 
          (d) Dividend Maintenance. No Dividend Shares shall be credited to a
     Participant's Account in any quarter (i) in which the total cash dividends
     declared per share of Common Stock are less than $.41 or (ii) in which the
     total cash dividends declared per share of Common Stock are less than the
     total cash dividends declared per share of Common Stock in the same quarter
     of the immediately preceding year, except that the determination of whether
     the total cash dividends per share of Common Stock are less than in the
     immediately preceding year shall be made after adjustment for the
     two-for-one stock split which occurred in 1992 in accordance with generally
     accepted accounting principles. When total cash dividends declared per
     share of Common Stock are less than total cash dividends declared per share
     of Common Stock in the same quarter of the immediately preceding year as
     described above, the book value of each Participation Share held by a
     Participant shall be reduced by an amount equal to the difference between
     the cash dividend declared in such immediately preceding quarter less the
     cash dividend declared in the quarter the cash dividend is reduced.
 
                                       A-4

<PAGE>   32
 
          (e) Adjustments. To preserve the benefit to the Participant and the
     Corporation contemplated hereby, stock repurchases (other than Common Stock
     transferred to the Corporation upon the exercise of an Option pursuant to
     subsection 8(f)) or changes in the Corporation's accounting policies during
     any fiscal year shall be automatically excluded for purposes of determining
     Book Value for purposes of this Plan for such fiscal year and for all
     future years with respect to any outstanding Participation Share Awards;
     provided, however, that the Committee shall have the discretion to waive
     any such exclusion that would have the effect of increasing Book Value (to
     the extent that such discretion does not result in the disallowance of a
     deduction to the Corporation under section 162(m) of the Code or any
     successor section). To further preserve the benefit to the Participant and
     the Corporation contemplated hereby, if a cash dividend is declared in any
     quarter and the payment date for such cash dividend is later than the
     immediately subsequent quarter, then such cash dividend will be deemed to
     be declared in the quarter immediately preceding the payment date for all
     purposes of this Plan, as of the first date the Board meets in such
     quarter, or if the Board does not meet in such quarter, on the first
     business day of such quarter, including, but not limited to, the
     determination of (i) Book Value in subsection 7(a), (ii) Dividend Shares in
     subsection 7(c) and (iii) whether the total cash dividends declared per
     share of Common Stock in a quarter is less than $.41 or whether the total
     cash dividends declared per share of Common Stock are less than the total
     cash dividends declared per share of Common Stock in the same quarter of
     the immediately preceding year in subsection 7(d).
 
          (f) Absence of Rights as a Stockholder. A Participant shall not be
     entitled, on the basis of a Participation Share award, to any of the rights
     of a stockholder of the Corporation, including the right to vote and
     receive dividends on Common Stock.
 
          (g) Date of Payment. Except as provided in subsection 15(h), the
     payment provided for in subsection 7(c) shall be payable within 90 days
     following the Maturity Date.
 
          (h) Termination of Employment. Except as provided in subsection 9(a),
     any Participation Shares or Dividend Shares credited to a Participant's
     Account shall be forfeited if the Participant is dismissed or leaves the
     service of the Corporation or Affiliate prior to the Maturity Date of the
     award for any reason other than death, Retirement or Total and Permanent
     Disability.
 
          (i) Termination of Award. After the Corporation makes the cash payment
     provided for in subsection 7(c), any rights of the Participant (or the
     Participant's estate or beneficiaries) in the Participation Share award
     shall end.
 
8. STOCK OPTIONS
 
     The Committee shall determine and designate from time to time those
Participants to whom Options are to be granted and the number of shares of
Common Stock to be optioned to each. Such Options may be in the form of
Incentive Stock Options or in the form of Nonqualified Stock Options. After
granting an Option to a Participant, the Committee shall cause to be delivered
to the Participant an Award Agreement evidencing the granting of the Option. The
Award Agreement shall be in such form as the Committee shall from time to time
approve. The terms and conditions of all Options granted under the Plan need not
be the same, but all Options must meet the applicable terms and conditions
specified in subsections 8(a) through 8(h).
 
          (a) Period of Option. The Period of each Option shall be no more than
     10 years from the date it is granted.
 
          (b) Option Price. The Option price shall be determined by the
     Committee, but shall not in any instance be less than the Fair Market Value
     of the Common Stock at the time that the Option is granted (the "Option
     Price").
 
                                       A-5

<PAGE>   33
 
          (c) Limitations on Exercise. The Option shall not be exercisable until
     at least one year has expired after the granting of the Option, during
     which time the Participant shall have been in the continuous employ of the
     Corporation or an Affiliate. At any time during the period of the Option
     after the end of the first year, the Participant may purchase up to 30
     percent of the shares covered by the Option; after the end of the second
     year, an additional 30 percent; and after the end of the third year, the
     remaining 40 percent of the total number of shares covered by the Option;
     provided, however, that if the Participant's employment is terminated for
     any reason other than death, Retirement or Total and Permanent Disability,
     the Option shall be exercisable only for three months following such
     termination and only for the number of shares of Common Stock which were
     exercisable on the date of such termination. In no event, however, may an
     Option be exercised more than 10 years after the date of its grant.
 
          (d) Exercise after Death, Retirement, or Disability. If a Participant
     dies or becomes Totally and Permanently Disabled, without having exercised
     the Option in full, the remaining portion of such Option may be exercised,
     without regard to the limitations in subsection 8(c), within (i) three
     years from the date of any such event or (ii) the remaining period of the
     Option, whichever is earlier. Upon a Participant's death, the Option may be
     exercised by the person or persons to whom such Participant's rights under
     the Option shall pass by will or by applicable law or, if no such person
     has such rights, by his executor or administrator. If a Participant Retires
     without having exercised the Option in full, the remaining portion of such
     Option may be exercised, without regard to the limitations in subsection
     8(c), within the remaining period of the Option.
 
          (e) Non-transferability. During the Participant's lifetime, Options
     shall be exercisable only by such Participant. Options shall not be
     transferable other than by will or the laws of descent and distribution
     upon the Participant's death. Notwithstanding anything in this subsection
     8(e) to the contrary, at the same time as Nonqualified Stock Options are
     granted the Committee may also grant to designated Participants the right
     to transfer such Options, to the extent allowed under rule 16b-3 of the
     Exchange Act, subject to the terms and conditions of the Committee Rules on
     the date of grant.
 
          (f) Exercise; Notice Thereof. Options shall be exercised by delivering
     to the Corporation, at the office of the Treasurer at the World
     Headquarters, written notice of the number of shares with respect to which
     Option rights are being exercised and by paying in full the Option Price of
     the shares at the time being acquired. Payment may be made in cash, a check
     payable to the Corporation or in shares of Common Stock transferable to the
     Corporation and having a Fair Market Value on the transfer date equal to
     the amount payable to the Corporation. The date of exercise shall be deemed
     to be the date the Corporation receives the written notice and payment for
     the shares being purchased. A Participant shall have none of the rights of
     a stockholder with respect to shares covered by such Option until the
     Participant becomes the record holder of such shares.
 
          (g) Purchase for Investment. It is contemplated that the Corporation
     will register shares sold to Participants pursuant to the Plan under the
     Securities Act of 1933. In the absence of an effective registration,
     however, a Participant exercising an Option hereunder may be required to
     give a representation that he/she is acquiring such shares as an investment
     and not with a view to distribution thereof.
 
          (h) Limitations on Incentive Stock Option Grants.
 
             (i) An Incentive Stock Option shall be granted only to an
        individual who, at the time the Option is granted, does not own stock
        possessing more than 10 percent of the total combined voting power of
        all classes of stock of the Corporation or Affiliates.
 
             (ii) The aggregate Fair Market Value of all shares with respect to
        which Incentive Stock Options are exercisable by a Participant for the
        first time during any year shall not
 
                                       A-6

<PAGE>   34
 
        exceed $100,000. The aggregate Fair Market Value of such shares shall be
        determined at the time the Option is granted.
 
          (i) Options for Nonresident Aliens. In the case of any Option awarded
     to a Participant who is not a resident of the United States or who is
     employed by an Affiliate other than an Affiliate that is incorporated, or
     whose place of business is, in a State of the United States, the Committee
     may (i) waive or alter the conditions set forth in subsections 8(a) through
     8(h) to the extent that such action is necessary to conform such Option to
     applicable foreign law, or (ii) take any action, either before or after the
     award of such Option, which it deems advisable to obtain approval of such
     Option by an appropriate governmental entity; provided, however, that no
     action may be taken hereunder if such action would (1) increase any
     benefits accruing to any Participants under the Plan, (2) increase the
     number of securities which may be issued under the Plan, (3) modify the
     requirements for eligibility to participate in the Plan, (4) result in a
     failure to comply with applicable provisions of the Securities Act of 1933,
     the Exchange Act or the Code or (5) result in the disallowance of a
     deduction to the Corporation under section 162(m) of the Code or any
     successor section.
 
          (j) Election to Receive Cash Rather than Stock.
 
             (i) At the same time as Nonqualified Stock Options are granted the
        Committee may also grant to designated Participants the right to convert
        a specified number of shares of Common Stock covered by such
        Nonqualified Stock Options to cash, subject to the terms and conditions
        of this subsection 8(j). For each such Option so converted, the
        Participant shall be entitled to receive cash equal to the difference
        between the Participant's Option Price and the Fair Market Value of the
        Common Stock on the date of conversion. Such a right shall be referred
        to herein as a Stock Appreciation Right ("SAR"). Participants to which
        an SAR has been granted shall be notified of such grant and of the
        Options to which such SAR pertains. An SAR may be revoked by the
        Committee, in its sole discretion, at any time, provided, however, that
        no such revocation may be taken hereunder if such action would result in
        the disallowance of a deduction to the Corporation under section 162(m)
        of the Code or any successor section.
 
             (ii) A person who has been granted an SAR may exercise such SAR
        during such periods as provided for in the rules promulgated under
        section 16 of the Exchange Act. The SAR shall expire when the period of
        the subject Option expires.
 
             (iii) At the time a Participant converts one or more shares of
        Common Stock covered by an Option to cash pursuant to an SAR, such
        Participant must exercise one or more Nonqualified Stock Options, which
        were granted at the same time as the Option subject to such SAR, for an
        equal number of shares of Common Stock. In the event that the number of
        shares and the Option Price per share of all shares of Common Stock
        subject to outstanding Options is adjusted as provided in the Plan, the
        above SARs shall automatically be adjusted in the same ratio which
        reflects the adjustment to the number of shares and the Option Price per
        share of all shares of Common Stock subject to outstanding Options.
 
9. GOVERNMENT SERVICE, LEAVES OF ABSENCE AND OTHER TERMINATIONS
 
          (a) A Participation Share award shall be considered to reach maturity
     as of the close of the fiscal year in which (i) a Participant's employment
     terminates because such Participant enters governmental or military service
     or (ii) the Participant's employment with the Corporation or an Affiliate
     is terminated by reason of a shutdown or divestiture of all or a portion of
     the Corporation's or its Affiliate's business.
 
          (b) An authorized leave of absence shall not be deemed to be a
     termination of employment for purposes of the Plan. A termination of
     employment with the Corporation or an Affiliate to accept immediate
     reemployment with the Corporation or an Affiliate likewise shall not be
     deemed to be a termination of employment for purposes of the Plan.
 
                                       A-7

<PAGE>   35
 
10. SHARES SUBJECT TO THE PLAN
 
     The number of shares of Common Stock available with respect to all Awards
granted under this Plan shall not exceed 10,000,000 in the aggregate, of which
not more than 10,000,000 shall be available for option and sale, subject to the
adjustment provision set forth in section 12 hereof. The shares of Common Stock
subject to the Plan may consist in whole or in part of authorized but unissued
shares or of treasury shares, as the Board may from time to time determine.
Participation Shares which are retired through forfeiture or maturity, other
than those Participation Shares which are retired through the payment of Common
Stock, and shares subject to Options which become ineligible for purchase will
be available for Awards under the Plan to the extent permitted by section 16 of
the Exchange Act (or the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder) and to
the extent determined to be appropriate by the Committee. Shares of Common Stock
which are distributed through the payment of Participation Share Awards pursuant
to subsection 7(c) will not be available for Awards under the Plan.
 
11. INDIVIDUAL LIMITS
 
     The maximum number of Participation Shares or shares of Common Stock
covered by Options which may be granted to any Participant within any two
consecutive calendar-year period shall not exceed 500,000 in the aggregate. If
an Option which had been granted to a Participant is canceled, the shares of
Common Stock which had been subject to such canceled Option shall continue to be
counted against the maximum number of shares for which Options may be granted to
the Participant. In the event that the number of Participation Shares which may
be awarded or Options which may be granted is adjusted as provided in the Plan,
the above limits shall automatically be adjusted in the same ratio which
reflects the adjustment to the number of Participation Shares or Options
available under the Plan.
 
12. CHANGES IN CAPITALIZATION
 
     In the event there are any changes in the Common Stock or the
capitalization of the Corporation through a corporate transaction, such as any
merger, any acquisition through the issuance of capital stock of the
Corporation, any consolidation, any separation of the Corporation (including a
spin-off or other distribution of stock of the Corporation), any reorganization
of the Corporation (whether or not such reorganization comes within the
definition of such term in section 368 of the Code), or any partial or complete
liquidation by the Corporation, recapitalization, stock dividend, stock split or
other change in the corporate structure, appropriate adjustments and changes
shall be made by the Committee, to the extent necessary to preserve the benefit
to the Participant contemplated hereby, to reflect such changes in (a) the
aggregate number of shares subject to the Plan, (b) the maximum number of shares
for which Options or Participation Shares may be granted or awarded to any
Participant, (c) the number of shares and the Option Price per share of all
shares of Common Stock subject to outstanding Options, (d) the number of
Participation Shares, the Base Value per Participation Share awarded to
Participants, and the number of Dividend Shares credited to Participants'
Accounts, and (e) such other provisions of the Plan as may be necessary and
equitable to carry out the foregoing purposes, provided, however that no such
adjustment or change may be made to the extent that such adjustment or change
will result in the disallowance of a deduction to the Corporation under section
162(m) of the Code or any successor section.
 
13. EFFECT ON OTHER PLANS
 
     All payments and benefits under the Plan shall constitute special
compensation and shall not affect the level of benefits provided to or received
by any Participant (or the Participant's estate or beneficiaries) as part of any
employee benefit plan of the Corporation or an Affiliate. The Plan shall not be
construed to affect in any way a Participant's rights and obligations under any
other plan maintained by the Corporation or an Affiliate on behalf of employees.
 
                                       A-8

<PAGE>   36
 
14. TERM OF THE PLAN
 
     The term of the Plan shall be ten years, beginning April 24, 1992, and
ending April 23, 2002, unless the Plan is terminated prior thereto by the
Committee. No Option may be granted or Participation Share awarded after the
termination date of the Plan, but Options and Participation Shares theretofore
granted or awarded shall continue in force beyond that date pursuant to their
terms.
 
15. GENERAL PROVISIONS
 
          (a) Designated Beneficiary. Each Participant who shall be granted a
     Participation Share award under the Plan may designate a beneficiary or
     beneficiaries with the Committee on a form to be prescribed by it; provided
     that no such designation shall be effective unless so filed prior to the
     death of such Participant.
 
          (b) No Right of Continued Employment. Neither the establishment of the
     Plan nor the payment of any benefits hereunder nor any action of the
     Corporation, its Affiliates, the Board of Directors of the Corporation or
     its Affiliates, or the Committee shall be held or construed to confer upon
     any person any legal right to be continued in the employ of the Corporation
     or its Affiliates, and the Corporation and its Affiliates expressly reserve
     the right to discharge any Participant without liability to the
     Corporation, its Affiliates, the Board of Directors of the Corporation or
     its Affiliates or the Committee, except as to any rights which may be
     expressly conferred upon a Participant under the Plan.
 
          (c) Binding Effect. Any decision made or action taken by the
     Corporation, the Board or by the Committee arising out of or in connection
     with the construction, administration, interpretation and effect of the
     Plan shall be conclusive and binding upon all persons.
 
          (d) Modification of Awards.
 
             (1) The Committee may in its sole and absolute discretion, by
        written notice to a Participant, (i) limit or eliminate the ability of
        the Participant's Participation and Dividend Shares to generate
        additional Dividend Shares, and/or (ii) fix the Book Value of all or any
        portion of the Participant's existing Participation and existing or
        future Dividend Shares for the purposes of any payments that might be
        made under subsection 7(c) at their Book Value as of the end of the
        fiscal year of the Corporation in which such notice is dated so that no
        further appreciation occurs in such Book Value, and/or (iii) limit the
        period in which an Option may be exercised to a period ending at least
        three months following the date of such notice, and/or (iv) limit or
        eliminate the number of shares subject to Option after a period ending
        at least three months following the date of such notice. Notwithstanding
        anything in this subsection 15(d) to the contrary, the Committee may not
        take any action to the extent that such action would result in the
        disallowance of a deduction to the Corporation under section 162(m) of
        the Code or any successor section.
 
             (2) A Participant's Participation Share or Dividend Share which has
        had its ability to generate additional Dividend Shares limited or
        eliminated and for which the Book Value is fixed pursuant to subsection
        15(d)(1)(i) of the Plan shall be credited with interest equal to the
        product of (i) the number of Interest Credits (determined pursuant to
        subsection 15(d)(3) below) credited to such Participant's Account as of
        the Maturity Date and (ii) the Book Value at which such Participation
        Share or Dividend Share has been fixed.
 
             (3) The number of Interest Credits to be credited to a
        Participant's Account for each fiscal quarter of the Corporation ending
        after the date as of which the Book Value of such Participant's
        Participation Shares or Dividend Shares is fixed shall be determined as
        follows. The total cash dividend declared per share of Common Stock
        during such quarter (but subsequent to the date of the award in the case
        of Participation Shares and subsequent to the date of crediting in the
        case of Dividend Shares) shall be multiplied by
 
                                       A-9

        the total of the Participation Shares, Dividend Shares and Interest
        Credits in the Participant's Account. The amount so determined shall be
        divided by the Book Value of one share of Common Stock as of the close
        of such fiscal quarter. The quotient shall represent the number of full
        and fractional Interest Credits credited to such Participant's Account
        for that quarter.
 
          (e) No Segregation of Cash or Stock. The Accounts established for
     Participants are merely a bookkeeping convenience and neither the
     Corporation nor its Affiliates shall be required to segregate any cash or
     stock which may at any time be represented by Awards. Nor shall anything
     provided herein be construed as providing for such segregation. Neither the
     Corporation, its Affiliates, the Board nor the Committee shall, by any
     provisions of the Plan, be deemed to be a trustee of any property, and the
     liability of the Corporation or its Affiliates to any Participant pursuant
     to the Plan shall be those of a debtor pursuant to such contract
     obligations as are created by the Plan, and no such obligation of the
     Corporation or its Affiliates shall be deemed to be secured by any pledge
     or other encumbrance on any property of the Corporation or its Affiliates.
 
          (f) Inalienability of Benefits and Interest. Except as provided in
     subsections 8(e) and 15(a), no benefit payable under or interest in the
     Plan shall be subject in any manner to anticipation, alienation, sale,
     transfer, assignment, pledge, encumbrance or charge, and any such attempted
     action shall be void and no such benefit or interest shall be in any manner
     liable for or subject to debts, contracts, liabilities, engagements, or
     torts of any Participant or beneficiary.
 
          (g) Delaware Law to Govern. All questions pertaining to the
     construction, interpretation, regulation, validity and effect of the
     provisions of the Plan shall be determined in accordance with the laws of
     the State of Delaware.
 
          (h) Election to Defer Receipt.
 
             (1) A Participant may, with the consent of the Committee, elect to
        defer the receipt of all or any portion of amounts which may otherwise
        become payable under subsection 7(c). A Participant's receipt of any
        portion of the amount payable with respect to one or more outstanding
        Participation Share awards shall be deferred if, prior to the Maturity
        Date of any such award, such Participant elects such deferral by written
        notice to the Committee signed by the Participant and delivered to the
        Committee, and the Committee consents to such deferral. Such notice must
        clearly specify the manner of distribution described in paragraph (2)
        below which shall apply with respect to such deferred amounts. After
        adjustment for any resulting interest, the deferred amount shall be paid
        at the date or dates specified in the Participant's letter, and such
        adjusted amount shall not be subject to forfeiture as otherwise provided
        in subsection 7(h).
 
             (2) Amounts deferred pursuant to this subsection 15(h) shall be
        distributed in accordance with clause (i), (ii), or (iii), below, as
        elected by the Participant: (i) up to 15 annual installments commencing
        in the year after the termination of employment by reason of retirement;
        or (ii) up to five annual installments, commencing 13 months after the
        Participant's repatriation to his home country following a foreign
        assignment; or (iii) up to five annual installments, commencing as of a
        date requested by the Participant; provided, however, that such date
        shall not be more than 20 years after the Maturity Date. The amount of
        each installment under clause (i), (ii) or (iii) above shall be equal to
        the product of the amount which has not been distributed immediately
        prior to such installment and a fraction, the numerator of which is one
        and the denominator of which is the number of installments yet to be
        paid.
 
             (3) (i) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Plan to the
        contrary, deferred amounts shall be paid in one lump sum as soon as
        practicable after the death of the
 
                                      A-10

<PAGE>   38
 
        Participant or the termination of employment of the Participant with the
        Corporation for reasons other than Retirement or Total and Permanent
        Disability; however, if a Participant is or has been on foreign
        assignment in the 12 months immediately prior to the date of his
        termination of employment, and if the termination of employment is for
        any reason other than Retirement or Total and Permanent Disability, any
        remaining amounts shall be paid in one lump sum 13 months following the
        earlier of (A) the date of the Participant's repatriation to his home
        country following the foreign assignment or (B) the date of such
        termination of employment.
 
             (ii) Upon written application by a Participant or his legal
        representative stating that severe financial hardship will result from
        continued deferral, the Committee in its sole discretion may authorize
        payment of such Participant's deferred amounts prior to the date
        specified in the written notice described in subparagraph (h)(1) above.
        For purposes of this Plan, a "severe financial hardship" is an
        unanticipated emergency that is caused by an event beyond the control of
        the Participant and that would result in severe financial hardship to
        the individual if the emergency distribution were not permitted. Cash
        needs arising from foreseeable events, such as the purchase of a
        residence or education expenses for children shall not be considered the
        result of a severe financial hardship. For purposes of this Plan, a
        "severe financial hardship" is limited to an event described in Treasury
        Regulation section 1.401(k)-1(d)(2)(iv)(A)(1) or (4). For purposes of
        this Plan, a distribution is in "the amount necessary to satisfy the
        emergency" only if the requirements of Treasury Regulation section
        1.401(k)-1(d)(2)(iv)(B) are satisfied. A Participant must provide the
        Committee with substantiation of any such claim of severe financial
        hardship.
 
             (4) Amounts deferred hereunder shall be credited with interest,
        compounded quarterly, from the date such amount otherwise would have
        been paid at a rate yielding interest equivalent to the per annum market
        discount rate for six-month U.S. Treasury Bills as published by the
        Federal Reserve Board for the seven calendar days prior to January 1
        (for interest to be credited for the subsequent fiscal quarters ending
        March 31 and June 30) and prior to July 1 (for interest to be credited
        for the subsequent fiscal quarters ending on September 30 and December
        31).
 
          (i) Purchase of Common Stock. The Corporation and its Affiliates may
     purchase from time to time shares of Common Stock in such amounts as they
     may determine for purposes of the Plan. The Corporation and its Affiliates
     shall have no obligation to retain, and shall have the unlimited right to
     sell or otherwise deal with for their own account, any shares of Common
     Stock purchased pursuant to this paragraph.
 
          (j) Use of Proceeds. The proceeds received by the Corporation from the
     sale of Common Stock pursuant to the exercise of Options shall be used for
     general corporate purposes.
 
          (k) Withholding. The Committee shall require the withholding of all
     taxes as required by law. In the case of payments of Awards in shares of
     Common Stock or other securities, withholding shall be as required by law
     and in the Committee Rules. A Participant may elect to have any portion of
     the federal, state or local income tax withholding required with respect to
     an exercise of a Nonqualified Stock Option satisfied by tendering to the
     Corporation shares of Common Stock, which, in the absence of such an
     election, would have been issued to such Participant in connection with
     such exercise. In the event that the value of the shares of Common Stock
     tendered to satisfy the withholding tax required with respect to an
     exercise exceeds the amount of such tax, the excess of such market value
     over the amount of such tax shall be returned to the Participant, to the
     extent possible, in whole shares of Common Stock, and the remainder in
     cash. The value of a share of Common Stock tendered pursuant to this
     subsection 15(k) shall be the Fair Market Value of the Common Stock on the
     date on which such shares are tendered to the Corporation. An election
     pursuant to this subsection 15(k)
 
                                      A-11

<PAGE>   39
 
     shall be made in writing and signed by the Participant. An election
     pursuant to this subsection 15(k) is irrevocable. A Participant who
     exercises an option and who is required to report to the Securities and
     Exchange Commission under section 16(a) of the Exchange Act (an "Insider")
     may satisfy the income tax withholding due in respect of such exercise
     pursuant to this subsection 15(k) only if the Insider also satisfies an
     exemption under section 16(a) of the Exchange Act (or the rules or
     regulations promulgated thereunder) for such withholding.
 
          (l) Amendments. The Committee may at any time amend, suspend, or
     discontinue the Plan or alter or amend any or all Awards and Award
     Agreements under the Plan to the extent (1) permitted by law, (2) permitted
     by the rules of any stock exchange on which the Common Stock or any other
     security of the Corporation is listed, (3) permitted under applicable
     provisions of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, the Exchange Act
     (including rule 16b-3 thereof) and (4) that such action would not result in
     the disallowance of a deduction to the Corporation under section 162(m) of
     the Code or any successor section (including the rules and regulations
     promulgated thereunder); provided, however, that if any of the foregoing
     requires the approval by stockholders of any such amendment, suspension or
     discontinuance, then the Committee may take such action subject to the
     approval of the stockholders. Except as provided in subsections 8(i) and
     15(d) no such amendment, suspension, or termination of the Plan shall,
     without the consent of the Participant, adversely alter or change any of
     the rights or obligations under any Awards or other rights previously
     granted the Participant under the Plan.

                    CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY AND CITIZENSHIP
 
                     FUNDAMENTAL POLICY AND POLICY COMMENT
 
FUNDAMENTAL POLICY:
 
     It is the policy of Kimberly-Clark to be a good and responsible corporate
citizen with proper regard for the public interest.
 
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
POLICY COMMENT:
 
  Introduction
 
     If it were ever possible to think of corporate objectives simply -- make
this, sell that, sustain and increase profits -- it most assuredly is not
possible now. We at Kimberly-Clark, and our counterparts, wherever located,
receive, with increasing frequency, requests, resolutions, and even demands to
act on matters far removed from the direct activity of the company. Among
current interests of some stockholders and others, for example, we find issues
of global environment, health risks associated with tobacco, and how to assist
the politically-disadvantaged in the Republic of South Africa escape from
problems of apartheid.
 
     Such initiatives are a sign of the times, and though they complicate our
lives a good bit, they are not necessarily a bad sign, at that. They can point
to connections among seemingly separate topics, and they can remind us of the
human impacts which corporate actions may have. While we do not object to the
various good-willed urgings for action which come our way, we think it is
vitally important that those who request such actions, and interested parties
generally, understand the context of principles within which we consider these
suggestions. While those who ask for this or that action often have only one
objective in mind, we as fiduciary representatives of the company must consider
such actions in a wider, multi-dimensional arena of company conduct. How do we
conceive Kimberly-Clark's corporate responsibilities? With what understandings
do we begin the consideration of special action requests?
 
  The Principled Context of Corporate Decisions
 
     The people of Kimberly-Clark share the same earth as all others. And
Kimberly-Clark's people, i.e., its employees, stockholders, management,
directors, as well as its customers, citizens of communities and others affected
by the company's actions have the same stake in environmental welfare, public
health, and social justice as do all citizens.
 
     Concern for such matters is a crucial part of company responsibility. We
emphasize "part" because Kimberly-Clark, as all major firms, has many values,
objectives and obligations. Accordingly, such special concerns as those listed
above must be integrated into the reasoned judgment we are expected to bring to
company decisions.
 
     What are the other objectives which must be sought as we strive to be
socially responsible? Different people would create somewhat different lists, no
doubt, but the following company aims are essential and must be acknowledged by
anyone who accepts the American system of socially-responsible private property
and free enterprise.
 
                                       B-1

     We want high customer satisfaction with the quality of our products and
with the attractiveness of their prices. This is the prerequisite for everything
else we aim for, and in order to achieve it we must be competitive in all that
we do.
 
     We want all of our employees to have genuine respect for themselves in
their daily work and for their company. We want our managers to have respect for
their employees. We want a spirit of cooperation and teamwork throughout the
company.
 
     We want the company to be financially strong so that its stockholders can
foresee a safe future, its employees can expect continued work, its customers
can expect quality products, and its communities can anticipate the benefits of
corporate presence.
 
     We want profits as the guarantor of that financial strength, and because
profits create the investment capital which creates new jobs and opportunities.
 
  Making Decisions Within That Context
 
     It is crucial that those who share our environmental and social concerns
realize that, in manifesting those concerns, we must always be dedicated to the
corporate values articulated here. Kimberly-Clark will be able to serve no human
good if it does not prosper as a corporation. That is the reason we insist that
any social concerns must be integrated into our general responsibilities, and
not be seen as exclusive criteria of corporate responsibility.
 
     Also, we believe it is only fair that our responsibility for social
concerns should not be expected to compensate for the failures of others
appropriately to discharge their respective responsibilities.
 
     Another reality which conditions our response to social issues has to do
with the often radical limits of our knowledge of what right action should be.
The simple fact is that even on an issue as science-based as the environment the
state of human knowledge is incomplete and problematic. The issues in such
political and judgmental matters as South African policy are possibly even more
complex. Accordingly, on these kinds of topics we know we must be very careful
before we draw large and definitive conclusions.
 
     Moreover, even when objectives are shared, there are often many alternative
means with which to seek the good end, and that fact is another powerful reason
for caution. It is management's responsibility to weigh alternate means in
relationship to the multiple corporate values discussed above. A socially
positive technique which costs more, for example, would be judged inferior to
another technique which had a similar social impact but costs appreciably less.
The latter would contribute more to competitiveness and profitability. By the
same token, in contemplating alternative corporate strategies, one which is
roughly equal to others in terms of profitability would be preferred if it had a
more positive social impact than the others.
 
     Thus, stating the good social objective, whatever it may be, is just the
beginning of responsible corporate conduct. In fact, that is the easy part. The
more difficult task remains: weighing competing objectives, melding them into an
enlightened corporate policy, and then selecting the most intelligent means to
achieve the proper objective. This should be inherent in the day to day activity
of each and every employee. When final choices are required, this is the
particular task of company leadership.
 
     As noted previously, we do not object to positively-intended
recommendations as to the best ways Kimberly-Clark can benefit society's
welfare. We will seriously consider them. At the same time, it should by now be
clear to all that we cannot rightly abdicate our authority and responsibility to
make these determinations according to our best judgment. Any such abdication to
external passions and pressures would be the ultimate irresponsibility
permitting the company to be whipsawed by the changing priorities of special
interest groups, and directly threatening its capacity to achieve its manifold
objectives.
 
     It is our specific duty to see that all legitimate interests are taken into
account in establishing company policy and in the conduct of daily affairs. That
circumspect approach will not satisfy some
 
                                       B-2

<PAGE>   42
 
critics for whom all values have been reduced to one, no doubt, but it is for us
the only responsible course. Being mortal, we cannot guarantee we will always
make the right decision. But we can and do guarantee right intention,
wide-ranging concern, and socially-alert disposition.
 
  A Word on Government's Role
 
     While Kimberly-Clark and other corporations exist for limited and
particular purposes, citizens know that the reason government exists is to serve
the general welfare, or common good. In other words, its role is to regulate or
prohibit the right of individuals to act when the common good so demands. Its
duty is to create and preserve the social order on which we all depend, to bring
a just solution and end to social conflicts, and to be responsible for those
things which particular interests can never accomplish. These include such
things as national security, currency systems, and the like.
 
     While we have no desire to see government's role expand, we recognize that
on many social issues of great concern to stockholders and others government
necessarily will establish basic social policy. Social advocates should realize
that no corporation can substitute for government, and should not use
corporations as whipping boys when their real complaint is with government
policy or the lack of it. No corporation can blaze new social trails if in doing
so it cripples its competitiveness. As we look at the various social petitions
which come our way, it seems clear that some petitioners imagine we can fill the
void for what is, in their view, a poor or absent government policy. Nothing in
history suggests the propriety of such an approach.
 
  Further Policies
 
     It is the intent of the company, from time to time, to adopt and/or amend
specific policies relating to such public interest matters as are deemed
appropriate by or on behalf of the Kimberly-Clark directors in the exercise of
sound business judgment. All such policies shall be predicated on and subject to
this fundamental policy on corporate responsibility and citizenship.
