RSU AWARD AGEEMENT
TERMS AND CONDITIONS (the “RSU TERMS AND CONDITIONS”)
These RSU Terms and Conditions, including the relevant addendum, are a part of each International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. (the “Company”) RSU Award Agreement made under the Plan, which is hereby incorporated by reference.
Capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Plan. In the event of any conflict between the provisions of these RSU Terms and Conditions and the Plan, the provisions of the Plan shall govern.
Amount of RSU Award. As of the Grant Date, the Participant shall be eligible to receive an RSU Award in the number of RSUs specified on the first page of the RSU Award Agreement. The RSU Award provides Participant with a contractual right to receive one share of Stock for each RSU being settled upon vesting.
Eligibility for Award. A Participant’s eligibility for an RSU Award shall be at the discretion of the Committee as authorized in Section 5 of the Plan. The grant of an RSU Award is a one-time benefit and does not create any contractual or other right to receive any future RSU Award.
Vesting and Account. The RSU Award vests on the date set forth on the first page of the RSU Award Agreement if not previously forfeited, and is 0% vested before expiration of this period. Prior to vesting, the Company or its designated agent shall maintain a bookkeeping account reflecting the number of RSUs credited to a Participant’s account.
Settlement of the Award. Upon vesting, the RSU Award will be settled by delivery of one share of Stock as of the Vesting Date, for each RSU being settled. Such settlement shall occur promptly on or following the vesting of each RSU.
Voting Rights and Dividends. RSUs do not provide voting or dividend rights until fully vested and no dividends or dividend equivalents will be paid or credited on any unvested RSUs.
Termination of Employment. A Participant’s rights under the RSU Award following termination of employment or leave of absence shall be determined in accordance with the following provisions:
Termination Not for Cause, Death or Disability. If the Participant is involuntarily terminated not for Cause or terminates employment due to death or disability prior to June 13, 2015, then one half (10,000) of the outstanding unvested RSUs will become immediately vested. If the Participant is involuntarily terminated not for Cause or terminates employment due to death or disability on or after June 13, 2015, then a pro-rata portion of all outstanding unvested RSUs shall become immediately vested. Upon vesting, such RSUs shall be settled promptly. The
pro-rata portion shall be determined by multiplying the number of unvested RSUs by a fraction, the numerator of which is (x) the number of days from the Grant Date to the Participant’s termination of employment and (y) the denominator of which is 730. A Participant’s RSUs that have not vested before such termination of employment under this subsection 6(a) will be immediately forfeited.
Resignation, Termination With Cause or Retirement. If a Participant resigns, is terminated by the Company for Cause or terminates employment due to Normal or Early Retirement, then all outstanding unvested RSUs will be immediately forfeited.
Change in Control. In the event the Company undergoes a “Change in Control” as defined in Section 9 of the Plan, RSU Awards shall be treated as provided for in Section 9 of the Plan.
Clawback and Recoupment Provisions. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the RSU Award shall be subject to the clawback, recoupment and forfeiture provisions of Section 10 of the Plan and Section 7 of the ESP. By acknowledging the RSU Award Agreement, the Participant acknowledges that any and all RSU Awards previously granted to the Participant under Section 6 or Section 7 of the Plan prior to the Grant Date, and any other cash or Stock provided to the Participant prior to or following the Grant Date under the RSU Award or otherwise under the Plan, are subject to the provisions of Section 10 of the Plan and Section 7 of the ESP.
Limits on Transfers of Awards. Except as provided by the Committee, no RSU Award and no right under any RSU Award, shall be assignable, alienable, saleable, or transferable by a Participant other than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution in accordance with Section 11(b) of the Plan.
Administration. The Board has delegated administrative authority to the Committee and the RSU Award shall be administered by the Committee or a subset of the Committee that satisfies the requirements of Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and regulations promulgated thereunder (the “Code”) with respect to any incentive compensation subject to Code Section 162(m).
Powers and Duties. The Committee shall have sole discretion and authority to make any and all determinations necessary or advisable for administration of an RSU Award and may adopt, amend or revoke any rule or regulation established for the proper administration of an RSU Award. The Committee shall have the ability to modify the RSU Award provisions, to the extent necessary, or delegate such authority, to accommodate any changes in law or regulations in jurisdictions in which Participants will receive RSU Awards. The Committee will oversee RSU Award calculations. All interpretations, decisions, or
determinations made by the Committee pursuant to an RSU Award shall be final and conclusive.
Amendment; Termination of the RSU Award. The Committee has the right to revise, modify, or terminate an RSU Award in whole or in part at any time or for any reason, and the right to modify any RSU Award amount in accordance with Section 11(e) of the Plan.
Tax Liability and Withholding. The Participant shall be responsible for any tax liability that may arise as a result of the payments contemplated by an RSU Award or these RSU Terms and Conditions in accordance with Section 11(d) of the Plan. The Participant acknowledges the Company is authorized to withhold taxes due, or potentially payable in connection with any payment of an RSU Award in accordance with Section 11(d) of the Plan. Further, the Participant agrees to any deduction or setoff by the Company as provided under Section 11(f) of the Plan.
Compliance with Code Section 409A. Section 11(j) of the Plan is hereby incorporated by reference.
Severability; Survival of Terms. Should any provision of an RSU Award or these RSU Terms and Conditions be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such holding shall not affect the validity of the remainder of the RSU Award or these RSU Terms and Conditions. These RSU Terms and Conditions shall apply to and bind the Participant and the Company and their respective permitted assignees and transferees, heirs, legatees, executors, administrators and legal successors.
Entire Agreement; Dispute Resolution. These RSU Terms and Conditions and all addendums hereto, the RSU Award Agreement and the Plan constitute the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede in their entirety all prior undertakings and agreements of the Company and the Participant with respect to the subject matter hereof.
