A qualified defined contribution plan established and maintained by an employer to provide benefits similar to those of a profit-sharing plan, except that the contributions by the employer are not necessarily dependent upon profits and the benefits are distributable in stock of the employer company. For the purpose of allocating and distributing the stock of the employer that is to be shared among employees or their beneficiaries, such a plan is subject to the same requirements as a profit-sharing plan.
