1.         DEFINITIONS AND CONSTRUCTION.

1.1       Definitions.  Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms shall have the meanings assigned to such terms in the Grant Notice or the Plan.

1.2       Construction.  Captions and titles contained herein are for convenience only and shall not affect the meaning or interpretation of any provision of this Agreement.  Except when otherwise indicated by the context, the singular shall include the plural and the plural shall include the singular.  Use of the term “or” is not intended to be exclusive, unless the context clearly requires otherwise.

2.         ADMINISTRATION.

All questions of interpretation concerning the Grant Notice, this Agreement, the Plan or any other form of agreement or other document employed by the Company in the administration of the Plan or the RSUs shall be determined by the Board.  All such determinations by the Board shall be final, binding and conclusive upon all persons having an interest in the RSUs, unless fraudulent or made in bad faith.  Any and all actions, decisions and determinations taken or made by the Board in the exercise of its discretion pursuant to the Plan or the RSUs or other agreement thereunder (other than determining questions of interpretation pursuant to the preceding sentence) shall be final, binding and conclusive upon all persons having an interest in the RSUs.  Any Officer shall have the authority to act on behalf of the Company with respect to any matter, right, obligation, or election which is the responsibility of or which is allocated to the Company herein, provided the Officer has apparent authority with respect to such matter, right, obligation, or election.

 


 

3.         VESTING.

Except as set forth in Section 4 below and subject to the limitations contained herein, the RSUs shall vest as provided in the Grant Notice.

4.         TERMINATION OF SERVICE.

4.1       Termination of Service Due to Participant’s Death.  Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, if Participant’s Service terminates because of Participant’ death, the unvested portion of the RSUs will become one hundred percent (100%) vested on the date of Participant’s termination of Service due to death.

4.2       Termination of Service Due to Participant’s Disability.  Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, if Participant’s Service terminates as a result of Disability, the unvested RSUs will become one hundred percent (100%) vested on the date of Participant’s termination of Service due to Disability.

For purposes of this Subsection 4.2, “Disability” will be determined in accordance with the standards and procedures of the then-current long term disability plan maintained by the Company, which is generally a physical condition arising from an illness or injury, which renders an individual incapable of performing work in any occupation, as determined by the Company.

4.3       Other Termination of Service. In the event Participant’s Service terminates for any reason other than death or Disability or as otherwise specified in the Plan, vesting shall cease upon the termination of the Participant’s Service.  Any portion of the RSUs that have not vested as of Participant’s termination of Service for any reason other than death or Disability or as otherwise specified in the Plan shall be forfeited upon termination of Service.

5.         DIVIDENDS.

The Participant shall not receive any payment or other adjustment in the number of RSUs for dividends or other distributions that may be made in respect of the shares of Stock to which the RSUs relate.

6.         DISTRIBUTION OF SHARES OF STOCK.

The Company will deliver to the Participant a number of shares of Stock equal to the number of vested shares of Stock subject to the RSUs on the vesting date or dates provided in the Grant Notice, less any shares of Stock withheld for the payment of taxes as described in Subsection 12.2 of this Agreement.


 

7.         ADJUSTMENTS; CHANGE IN CONTROL.

The provisions of the Plan applicable to Adjustments and a Change in Control or other corporate transaction, as described in Section 12 of the Plan, shall apply to the RSUs.

8.         SECURITIES LAW COMPLIANCE.

The Participant may not be issued any shares of Stock pursuant to the RSUs unless the shares of Stock are either (i) then registered under the Securities Act or (ii) the Company has determined that such issuance would be exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act.  The RSUs must also comply with other applicable laws and regulations governing the RSUs, and the Participant shall not receive such shares if the Company determines that such receipt would not be in material compliance with such laws and regulations.

9.         EXECUTION OF DOCUMENTS.

The Participant hereby acknowledges and agrees that the manner selected by the Company to indicate the Participant’s consent to the Grant Notice is also deemed to be execution of the Grant Notice and of this Agreement.  The Participant further agrees that such manner of indicating consent may be relied upon as the Participant’s signature for establishing execution of any documents to be executed in the future in connection with the RSUs.  This Agreement shall be deemed to be signed by the Company and the Participant upon the respective signing by the Company and the Participant of the Grant Notice to which it is attached.

10.       RSUS NOT A SERVICE CONTRACT.

The RSUs are not an employment or service contract, and nothing in the RSUs shall be deemed to create in any way whatsoever any obligation on the Participant to continue in the service of the Company or Participating Company, or on the part of the Company or Participating Company to continue such service.  In addition, nothing in the RSUs shall obligate the Company or Participating Companies, their respective stockholders, boards of directors, Officers or Employees to continue any relationship that the Participant might have as an Employee, Director or Consultant for the Company or Participating Company.

11.       UNSECURED OBLIGATION.

The RSUs are unfunded, and as a holder of a vested number of RSUs, the Participant shall be considered an unsecured creditor of the Company with respect to the Company’s obligation, if any, to issue shares of Stock pursuant to Section 6 of this Agreement.

12.       TAX WITHHOLDING.

12.1     In General.  At the time this Agreement is executed, or at any time thereafter as requested by the Company, the Participant hereby authorizes withholding from payroll and any other amounts payable to the Participant, and otherwise agrees to make adequate provision for, any sums required to satisfy the federal, state, local and foreign tax withholding obligations of the Company, if any, which arise in connection with the grant or vesting of the RSUs or the


 

issuance of Stock in settlement thereof.  The Company shall have no obligation to deliver Stock until the tax obligations of the Company have been satisfied by the Participant.

12.2     Withholding in Securities.  The Company shall require the Participant to satisfy all of the tax obligations, if any, by deducting from the shares of Stock otherwise deliverable to the Participant in settlement of the RSUs a number of shares of Stock having a fair market value, as determined by the Company as of the date on which the tax obligations arise, not in excess of the amount of such tax obligations determined by the applicable withholding rates.  Any adverse consequences to the Participant resulting from the procedure permitted under this Subsection 12.2, including, without limitation, tax consequences, shall be the sole responsibility of the Participant.

12.3     Consultation.  The Participant hereby acknowledges that he or she understands that the Participant may suffer adverse tax consequences as a result of participation in the Plan.  The Participant hereby represents that the Participant has consulted with tax consultants in connection with the Award and that the Participant is not relying on the Company for any tax advice.

12.4     Beneficial Ownership of Shares; Certificate Registration.  The Participant hereby authorizes the Company, in its sole discretion, to deposit for the benefit of the Participant with any broker with which the Participant has an account relationship of which the Company has notice any or all shares acquired by the Participant pursuant to the settlement of the RSUs.  Except as provided by the preceding sentence, a certificate for the shares pursuant to the RSUs shall be registered in the name of the Participant, or, if applicable, in the names of the heirs of the Participant.

13.       NONTRANSFERABILITY OF THE RSUS.

The RSUs and the rights and privileges conferred hereby shall not be sold, pledged or otherwise transferred (whether by operation of law or otherwise) in any manner otherwise than by will or by the laws of descent or distribution, shall not be subject to sale under execution, attachment, levy or similar process and may be exercised during the lifetime of the Participant only by the Participant.  The terms of the Plan and the Award Agreement shall be binding upon the executors, administrators, heirs, successors and assigns of the Participant.

14.       RIGHTS AS A STOCKHOLDER, DIRECTOR, EMPLOYEE OR CONSULTANT.

The Participant shall have no rights as a stockholder with respect to any shares related to the RSUs until the date of issuance of the shares pursuant to the RSUs (as evidenced by the appropriate entry on the books of the Company or of a duly authorized transfer agent of the Company).  If the Participant is an Employee, the Participant understands and acknowledges that, except as otherwise provided in a separate, written employment agreement between a Participating Company and the Participant, the Participant’s employment is “at will” and is for no specified term.  Nothing in this Agreement shall confer upon the Participant any right to continue in the Service of a Participating Company or interfere in any way with any right of the Participating Company Group to terminate the Participant’s Service as a Director, an Employee or Consultant, as the case may be, at any time.


 

15.       MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS.

15.1     Termination or Amendment. The Board may terminate or amend the Plan or the RSUs at any time.

15.2     Compliance with Section 409A.  The Company intends that income realized by the Participant pursuant to the Plan and this Agreement will not be subject to taxation under Section 409A of the Code.  The provisions of the Plan and this Agreement shall be interpreted and construed in favor of satisfying any applicable requirements of Section 409A of the Code.  The Company, in its reasonable discretion, may amend (including retroactively) the Plan and this Agreement in order to conform to the applicable requirements of Section 409A of the Code, including amendments to facilitate the Participant’s ability to avoid taxation under Section 409A of the Code.  However, the preceding provisions shall not be construed as a guarantee by the Company of any particular tax result for income realized by the Participant pursuant to the Plan or this Agreement.  In any event, and except for the responsibilities of the Company set forth in Section 12, no Participating Company shall be responsible for the payment of any applicable taxes on income realized by the Participant pursuant to the Plan or this Agreement.
