(b) Upon the settlement of a vested Restricted Stock Unit, the Company shall pay to Participant an amount equal to one (1) Share. As determined by the Committee, the Company shall pay such amount in (x) cash, (y) Shares or (z) any combination thereof. Any fractional Shares may be settled in cash, at the Committee’s election. (c) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Company shall not have any obligation to issue or transfer any Shares as contemplated by this Agreement unless and until such issuance or transfer complies with all relevant provisions of law. As a condition to the settlement of any portion of the RSU Award evidenced by this Agreement, Participant may be required to deliver certain documentation to the Company. (d) Participant will not be deemed to be the holder of, or to have any of the rights and privileges of a stockholder of the Company (including the right to vote or receive dividends) in respect of, Shares received upon the settlement of Restricted Stock Units until (i) the Company has issued the Shares in connection with such settlement pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and (ii) Participant has paid any applicable withholding taxes in accordance with Section 4 below. 4. Withholding. (a) The following provisions shall only apply to Participant if Participant resides in the United States: Participant may be required to pay to the Company or any Affiliate and the Company shall have the right and is hereby authorized to withhold, any applicable withholding taxes in respect of the Restricted Stock Units, their vesting or settlement or any payment or transfer with respect to the Restricted Stock Units at the minimum applicable statutory rates, and to take such action as may be necessary in the opinion of the Committee to satisfy all obligations for the payment of such withholding taxes. The Committee may, in its sole discretion, permit Participant to satisfy such withholding tax obligations, in whole or in part, by delivering Shares, including Shares received upon settlement of Restricted Stock Units pursuant to this Agreement. (b) The following provisions shall only apply to Participant if Participant resides outside the United States: (i) In General. Regardless of any action taken by the Company or any other Subsidiary with respect to any or all income tax, social insurance, payroll tax, payment on account or other tax-related withholding (the “Tax Obligations”), Participant acknowledges that the ultimate liability for all Tax Obligations legally due by Participant is and remains Participant’s responsibility and that the Company (a) makes no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax Obligations in connection with any aspect of the Restricted Stock Unit, including the grant, vesting and settlement of the Restricted Stock Unit, the subsequent sale of
Shares acquired pursuant to such exercise, or the receipt of any dividends and (b) does not commit to structure the terms of the grant or any other aspect of the Restricted Stock Unit to reduce or eliminate Participant’s liability for Tax Obligations. At the time of settlement of the Restricted Stock Unit, Participant shall pay or make adequate arrangements satisfactory to the Company to satisfy all withholding obligations of the Company and any other Subsidiary. In this regard, at the time the Restricted Stock Unit is vested, in whole or in part, or at any time thereafter as requested by the Company or any other Subsidiary, Participant hereby authorizes withholding of all applicable Tax Obligations from payroll and any other amounts payable to Participant, and otherwise agrees to make adequate provision for withholding of all applicable Tax Obligations, if any, by each Subsidiary which arise in connection with the Restricted Stock Unit. The Company shall have no obligation to deliver Shares until the Tax Obligations as described in this Section have been satisfied by Participant. (ii) Withholding in or Directed Sale of Shares. The Company shall have the right, but not the obligation, to require Participant to satisfy all or any portion of a Subsidiary’s Tax Obligations upon settlement of the Restricted Stock Unit by deducting from the Shares otherwise issuable to Participant a number of whole Shares having a Fair Market Value, as determined by the Company as of the date of vesting, not in excess of the amount of such Tax Obligations determined by the applicable minimum statutory withholding rates. The Company may require Participant to direct a broker, upon the vesting of the Restricted Stock Unit, to sell a portion of the Shares subject to the Restricted Stock Units determined by the Company in its discretion to be sufficient to cover the Tax Obligations of any Subsidiary and to remit an amount equal to such Tax Obligations to the Company in cash. 5. Termination of Employment or Service. (a) In the event that Participant’s employment with, or service to, the Company Group terminates for any reason, any unvested portion of the RSU Award will be forfeited and all of Participant’s rights under this Agreement will terminate as of the effective date of Termination (the “Termination Date”) (unless otherwise provided for by the Committee in accordance with the Plan). (b) Participant’s rights with respect to the RSU Award will not be affected by any change in the nature of Participant’s employment or service so long as Participant continues to be an employee, consultant or director of the Company Group. Whether (and the circumstances under which) employment or service has terminated and the determination of the Termination Date for the purposes of this Agreement will be determined by the Committee (or, with respect to any Participant who is not a director or Officer, its designee, whose good faith determination will be final, binding and conclusive; provided, that such designee may not make any such determination with respect to the designee’s own employment for purposes of the RSU Award). 6. Restrictions on Transfer. (a) Participant may not assign, alienate, pledge, attach, sell or otherwise transfer or encumber the Restricted Stock Units or Participant’s right under the RSU Award to receive Shares, other than in accordance with Section 13(b) of the Plan. (b) Participant agrees that in the event the Company advises Participant that it plans an underwritten public offering of Shares in compliance with the Securities Act and that the underwriter(s) seek to impose restrictions under which certain shareholders may not sell or contract to sell or grant any
option to buy or otherwise dispose of part or all of their stock purchase rights of the underlying Shares, Participant hereby agrees that for a period not to exceed 180 days from the prospectus, Participant will not sell or contract to sell or grant an option to buy or otherwise dispose of any Shares subject to this Agreement without the prior written consent of the underwriter(s) or its representative(s). 7. Repayment of Proceeds; Clawback Policy. The Shares underlying the RSU Award and all proceeds related to such Shares are subject to the clawback and repayment terms set forth in Sections 13(v) and 13(x) of the Plan and the Company’s clawback policy, as in effect from time to time, to the extent Participant is a director or Officer. In addition, if a Restrictive Covenant Violation occurs, Participant shall be required, in addition to any other remedy available (on a non-exclusive basis), to pay to the Company, within ten (10) business days of the Company’s request to Participant therefor, an amount equal to the aggregate after-tax proceeds (taking into account all amounts of tax that would be recoverable upon a claim of loss for payment of such proceeds in the year of repayment) Participant received either in cash in respect of the settlement of Restricted Stock Units, or upon the sale or other disposition of, or dividends or distributions in respect of, Shares received upon the settlement of Restricted Stock Units. 8. No Right to Continued Employment or Service. Neither the Plan nor this Agreement nor Participant’s receipt of the Restricted Stock Units hereunder shall impose any obligation on the Company or any Affiliate to continue the employment or service of Participant. Further, the Company or any Affiliate (as applicable) may at any time terminate the employment or service of Participant, free from any liability or claim under the Plan or this Agreement, except as otherwise expressly provided herein. 9. Service Conditions. The following provisions shall only apply to Participant if Participant resides outside the United States: In accepting the Restricted Stock Units hereunder, Participant acknowledges that: (a) Any notice period mandated under local law shall not be treated as service for the purpose of determining the vesting of the Restricted Stock Units; and Participant’s right to vest the Restricted Stock Units after termination of service, if any, will be measured by the date of termination of Participant’s active service and will not be extended by any notice period mandated under local law. Subject to the foregoing and the provisions of the Plan, the Company, in its sole discretion, shall determine whether Participant’s service has terminated and the effective date of such termination. (b) The vesting of the Restricted Stock Units shall cease upon, and no Shares shall become vested following, Participant’s termination of service for any reason except as may be explicitly provided by the Plan or this Agreement. (c) The Plan is established voluntarily by the Company. It is discretionary in nature and it may be modified, amended, suspended or terminated by the Company at any time, unless otherwise provided in the Plan and this Agreement. (d) The grant of the Restricted Stock Units is voluntary and occasional and does not create any contractual or other right to receive future grants of Restricted Stock Units, or benefits in lieu of Restricted Stock Units, even if Restricted Stock Units have been granted repeatedly in the past. (e) All decisions with respect to future Restricted Stock Units grants, if any, will be at the
sole discretion of the Company. (f) Participant’s participation in the Plan shall not create a right to further service with the Company or any Subsidiary and shall not interfere with the ability of any Subsidiary to terminate Participant’s service at any time, with or without cause subject to applicable law. (g) Participant is voluntarily participating in the Plan. (h) The Restricted Stock Units grant is an extraordinary item that does not constitute compensation of any kind for service of any kind rendered to any Subsidiary, and which is outside the scope of Participant’s employment contract, if any. (i) The Restricted Stock Unit is not part of normal or expected compensation or salary for any purpose, including, but not limited to, calculating any severance, resignation, termination, redundancy, end-of-service payments, bonuses, long-service awards, pension or retirement benefits or similar payments. (j) In the event that Participant is not an employee of the Company or Subsidiary, the Restricted Stock Units grant will not be interpreted to form an employment contract or relationship with the Company or Subsidiary; and furthermore the Restricted Stock Units grant will not be interpreted to form an employment contract with any other Subsidiary. (k) The future value of the underlying Shares is unknown and cannot be predicted with certainty. If the underlying Shares do not increase in value, the Restricted Stock Units will have no value. If Participant obtains Shares after vesting of Restricted Stock Units, the value of those Shares acquired may increase or decrease in value. (l) No claim or entitlement to compensation or damages arises from termination of the Restricted Stock Units or diminution in value of the Restricted Stock Units or Shares granted after the Restricted Stock Units vesting resulting from termination of Participant’s service (for any reason whether or not in breach of local law) and Participant irrevocably releases the Company and each other Subsidiary from any such claim that may arise. If, notwithstanding the foregoing, any such claim is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to have arisen then, by signing this Agreement, Participant shall be deemed irrevocably to have waived Participant’s entitlement to pursue such a claim. 10. Adjustments. The terms of this Agreement, including, without limitation, the number of Shares underlying the Restricted Stock Units, will be subject to adjustment in accordance with Section 11 of the Plan. 11. Securities Laws; Cooperation. Upon the vesting of any unvested Restricted Stock Units, Participant will make or enter into such written representations, warranties and agreements as the Committee may reasonably request in order to comply with applicable securities laws, the Plan or this Agreement. Participant further agrees to cooperate with the Company in taking any action reasonably necessary or advisable to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. 12. Notices. Any notice necessary under this Agreement shall be addressed to the Company in care of its Secretary at the principal executive office of the Company and to Participant at the address appearing in the personnel records of the Company for such Participant or to either party at such other address as either party hereto may hereafter designate in writing to the other. Any such notice
shall be deemed effective upon receipt thereof by the addressee. 13. Governing Law; Venue; Jury Trial Waiver; Language. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Delaware applicable to contracts made and performed wholly within the State of Delaware, without giving effect to the conflict of laws provisions thereof. For purposes of litigating any dispute that may arise directly or indirectly from this Agreement, the parties hereto hereby submit and consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the State of California and agree that any such litigation shall be conducted only in the courts of California or the federal courts of the United States located in California and no other courts. Each of Participant, the Company and any transferees who hold a portion of the RSU Award pursuant to a valid assignment hereby irrevocably waives any right to a jury trial. If Participant has received a copy of this Agreement (or the Plan or any other document related hereto or thereto) translated into a language other than English, such translated copy is qualified in its entirety by reference to the English version thereof, and in the event of any conflict the English version will govern. Participant acknowledges that Participant is sufficiently proficient in English to understand the terms and conditions of this Agreement. 14. Severability. Should any provision of this Agreement be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable or invalid for any reason, the remaining provisions of this Agreement will not be affected by such holding and will continue in full force in accordance with their terms. 15. Successors in Interest. Any successor to the Company will have the benefits of the Company under, and be entitled to enforce, this Agreement. Likewise, Participant’s legal representative will have the benefits of Participant under, and be entitled to enforce, this Agreement. All obligations imposed upon Participant and all rights granted to the Company under this Agreement will be final, binding and conclusive upon Participant’s heirs, executors, administrators and successors. 16. Data Privacy Acknowledgement. The following provisions shall only apply to Participant if he or she resides outside the United States and the European Economic Area: (a) General. Participant hereby explicitly and unambiguously acknowledges and agrees to the collection, use and transfer, in electronic or other form, of Participant’s personal data as described in this Agreement and any other Restricted Stock Unit grant materials by and among, as applicable, Participant’s employer or contracting party (the “Service Recipient”) and the Company for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing Participant’s participation in the Plan. If Participant does not choose to participate in the Plan, his or her employment status or service with the Company Group will not be adversely affected. Participant understands that the Company may hold certain personal information about Participant, including, but not limited to, Participant’s name, home address, email address and telephone number, work location and phone number, date of birth, social insurance number, passport or other identification number, salary, nationality, job title, hire date, any shares of stock or directorships held in the Company, details of all awards or any other entitlement to shares awarded, cancelled, exercised, vested, unvested or outstanding in Participant’s favor, for the purpose of implementing, administering and managing Participant’s participation in the Plan (“Personal Data”). (b) Use of Personal Data; Retention. Participant understands that Personal Data may be transferred to Fidelity or any other third parties assisting in the implementation, administration and
management of the Plan, now or in the future, that these recipients may be located in Participant’s country or elsewhere, and that the recipient’s country may have different data privacy laws and protections than Participant’s country. Participant understands that Participant may request a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of the Personal Data by contacting Participant’s local human resources representative. Participant authorizes the recipients to receive, possess, use, retain and transfer the Personal Data, in electronic or other form, for the purposes of implementing, administering and managing Participant’s participation in the Plan. Participant understands that Personal Data will be held only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage Participant’s participation in the Plan. Participant understands that Participant may, at any time, view Personal Data, request additional information about the storage and processing of Personal Data, require any necessary amendments to Personal Data or refuse or withdraw the consents herein, in any case without cost, by contacting in writing Participant’s local human resources representative. (c) Withdrawal of Consent. Participant understands that Participant is providing the consents herein on a purely voluntary basis. If Participant does not consent, or if Participant later seeks to revoke Participant’s consent, Participant’s employment status or service with the Service Recipient will not be affected; the only consequence of Participant’s refusing or withdrawing Participant’s consent is that the Company would not be able to grant Restricted Stock Units or other equity awards to Participant or administer or maintain such awards. Therefore, Participant understands that refusing or withdrawing Participant’s consent may affect Participant’s ability to participate in the Plan. For more information on the consequences of Participant’s refusal to consent or withdrawal of consent, Participant understands that Participant may contact Participant’s local human resources representative. The following provisions shall only apply to Participant if he or she resides in the European Economic Area or the United Kingdom or Switzerland: (a) Data Collected and Purposes of Collection. Participant understands that the Company, acting as controller, as well as the employer, may collect, to the extent permissible under applicable law, certain personal information about Participant, including name, home address and telephone number, information necessary to process the awards (e.g., mailing address for a check payment or bank account wire transfer information), date of birth, social insurance number or other identification number, salary, nationality, job title, employment location, any capital shares or directorships held in the Company (but only where needed for legal or tax compliance), any other information necessary to process mandatory tax withholding and reporting, details of all awards granted, canceled, vested, unvested or outstanding in Participant’s favor, and where applicable service termination date and reason for termination (all such personal information is referred to as “Data”). The Data is collected from Participant, the Subsidiary, and from the Company, for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Plan pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. The legal basis (that is, the legal justification) for processing the Data is to perform this Agreement. The Data must be provided in order for Participant to participate in the Plan and for the parties to this Agreement to perform their respective obligations thereunder. If Participant does not provide Data, he or she will not be able to participate in the Plan and become a party to this Agreement. (b) Transfers and Retention of Data. Participant understands that the employer Subsidiary will transfer Data to the Company for purposes of plan administration. The Company and the employer or a Subsidiary may also transfer Participant’s Data to other service providers (such as accounting firms, payroll processing firms or tax firms), as may be selected by the Company in the future, to assist the Company with the implementation, administration and management of this Agreement.
Participant understands that the recipients of the Data may be located in the United States, a country that does not benefit from an adequacy decision issued by the European Commission and is not listed by the Swiss supervisory authority as a country with adequate data protection legislation. Where a recipient is located in a country that does not benefit from an adequacy decision or adequacy listing, the transfer of the Data to that recipient will be made pursuant to European Commission-approved standard contractual clauses, a copy of which may be obtained at ***@***. Participant understands that Data will be held only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage Participant’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, and for the duration of the relevant statutes of limitations, which may be longer than the term of this Agreement. (c) Participant’s Rights in Respect of Data. The Company will take steps in accordance with applicable legislation to keep Data accurate, complete and up-to-date. Participant is entitled to have any inadequate, incomplete or incorrect Data corrected (that is, rectified). Participant also has the right to request access to his or her Data as well as additional information about the processing of that Data. Further, Participant is entitled to object to the processing of Data or have Participant’s Data erased, under certain circumstances. As from May 25, 2018, and subject to conditions set forth in applicable law, Participant also is entitled to (i) restrict the processing of his or her Data so that it is stored but not actively processed (e.g., while the Company assesses whether Participant is entitled to have Data erased) and (ii) receive a copy of the Data provided pursuant to this Agreement or generated by Participant, in a common machine-readable format. To exercise his or her rights, Participant may contact the local human resources representative. Participant may also contact the relevant data protection supervisory authority, as he or she has the right to lodge a complaint. The data protection officer may be contacted at ***@***. 17. Limitation on Rights; No Right to Future Grants; Extraordinary Item of Compensation. By accepting this Agreement and the grant of the Restricted Stock Units evidenced hereby, Participant expressly acknowledges that (a) the Plan is established voluntarily by the Company, it is discretionary in nature and may be suspended or terminated by the Company at any time to the extent permitted by the Plan; (b) the grant of the Restricted Stock Units is exceptional, voluntary and occasional and it does not create any contractual or other right to receive future grants of restricted stock units, or benefits in lieu of restricted stock units, even if restricted stock units have been granted in the past; (c) all determinations with respect to future restricted stock unit grants, if any, including the grant date and the number of restricted stock units granted, will be at the sole discretion of the Company; (d) Participant’s participation in the Plan is voluntary and not a condition of employment, and Participant may decline to accept the RSU Award without adverse consequences to Participant’s continued employment relationship with the Company Group; (e) the value of the Restricted Stock Unit is an extraordinary item that is outside the scope of Participant’s employment contract, if any, and nothing can or must automatically be inferred from such employment contract or its consequences; (f) Restricted Stock Units and any Shares acquired under the Plan, and the income from and value of same, are not part of normal or expected compensation for any purpose and are not to be used for calculating any severance, resignation, redundancy, end of service payments, bonuses, long-service awards, pension or retirement benefits or similar payments, Participant waives any claim on such basis and, for the avoidance of doubt, the Restricted Stock Units will not constitute an “acquired right” under the applicable law of any jurisdiction; (g) if the underlying Shares do not increase in value, the Restricted Stock Units will have no value; (h) if Participant settles the Restricted Stock Units and acquires Shares, the value of such Shares may increase or decrease in value; and (i) the future value of the underlying Shares is unknown and cannot be predicted with certainty. In addition, Participant understands, acknowledges and agrees that Participant will have no rights to
compensation or damages related to Restricted Stock Unit proceeds in consequence of the termination of Participant’s employment for any reason whatsoever and whether or not in breach of contract. 18. Book Entry; Certificates. Upon the settlement of any portion of the RSU Award in Shares pursuant to this Agreement, the Company shall recognize Participant’s ownership of such Shares through uncertificated book entry. If elected by the Company, certificates evidencing the Shares may be issued by the Company and any such certificates shall be registered in Participant’s name on the stock transfer books of the Company promptly after the date hereof, but shall remain in the physical custody of the Company or its designee at all times prior to the later of (a) the settlement of any portion of the RSU Award pursuant to this Agreement and (b) the expiration of any transfer restrictions set forth in this Agreement or otherwise applicable to the Shares. As soon as practicable following such time, any certificates for the Shares shall be delivered to Participant or to Participant’s legal guardian or representative along with the stock powers relating thereto. However, the Company shall not be liable to Participant for damages relating to any delays in issuing the certificates (if any) to Participant, any loss by Participant of the certificates, or any mistakes or errors in the issuance of the certificates or in the certificates themselves. 19. Legend. To the extent applicable, all book entries (or certificates, if any) representing the Shares delivered to Participant as contemplated by Section 3 above shall be subject to the rules, regulations and other requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission, any stock exchange upon which such Shares are listed, and any applicable Federal or state laws, and the Company may cause notations to be made next to the book entries (or a legend or legends put on certificates, if any) to make appropriate reference to such restrictions. Any such book entry notations (or legends on certificates, if any) shall include a description to the effect of the restrictions set forth in Sections 2 and 6 hereof. 20. Award Administrator. The Company may from time to time designate a third party administrator to assist the Company in the implementation, administration and management of the Plan and any Restricted Stock Units granted thereunder, including by sending award notices on behalf of the Company to Participants, and by facilitating through electronic means acceptance of Agreement by Participants and settlements of Restricted Stock Units. 21. Amendment. The Committee may waive any conditions or rights under, amend any terms of, or alter, suspend, discontinue, cancel or terminate this Agreement, but no such waiver, amendment, alteration, suspension, discontinuance, cancellation or termination shall materially adversely affect the rights of Participant hereunder without the consent of Participant. 22. Section 409A. It is intended that the Restricted Stock Units granted hereunder shall be exempt from Section 409A of the Code pursuant to the “short-term deferral” rule applicable to such section, as set forth in the regulations or other guidance published by the Internal Revenue Service thereunder. 23. Electronic Delivery and Acceptance. This Agreement may be executed electronically and in counterparts. The Company may, in its sole discretion, decide to deliver any documents related to the Plan by electronic means. Participant hereby consents to receive such documents by electronic delivery and agrees to participate in the Plan through an on-line or electronic system established and maintained by the Company or a third party designated by the Company.
24. Acceptance and Agreement by Participant; Forfeiture upon Failure to Accept. The grant of Restricted Stock Units hereunder will lapse ninety (90) days from the Date of Grant, and the RSU Award granted hereunder will be forfeited on such date if Participant has not accepted this Agreement by such date. For the avoidance of doubt, Participant’s failure to accept this Agreement will not affect Participant’s continuing obligations under any other agreement between the Company and Participant. If the attempted electronic delivery of such documents fails, Participant will be provided with a paper copy of the documents. Participant acknowledges that he or she may receive from the Company a paper copy of any documents that were delivered electronically at no cost to him or her by contacting the Company by telephone or in writing. Participant may revoke his or her consent to the electronic delivery of documents or may change the electronic mail address to which such documents are to be delivered (if Participant has provided an electronic mail address) at any time by notifying the Company of such revoked consent or revised e-mail address by telephone, postal service or electronic mail. Participant agrees that the foregoing online or electronic participation in the Plan shall have the same force and effect as documentation executed in hardcopy written form. Finally, Participant understands that he or she is not required to consent to electronic delivery of documents. 25. No Advice Regarding Grant. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Participant acknowledges and agrees that the Company is not providing any tax, legal or financial advice, nor is the Company making any recommendations regarding Participant’s participation in the Plan or Participant’s acquisition or sale of the underlying Shares received upon settlement of the Restricted Stock Units. Participant is hereby advised to consult with his or her own personal tax, legal and financial advisors regarding his or her participation in the Plan before taking any action related to the Plan. 26. Imposition of Other Requirements. The Company reserves the right to impose other requirements on Participant’s participation in the Plan and on any Shares received upon settlement of Restricted Stock Units under the Plan, to the extent the Company determines it is necessary or advisable for legal or administrative reasons, and to require Participant to sign any additional agreements or undertakings that may be necessary to accomplish the foregoing. 27. Language. If Participant has received this Agreement, or any other document related to the Restricted Stock Units and/or the Plan translated into a language other than English and if the meaning of the translated version is different than the English version, the English version will control. 28. No Advice Regarding Grant. The Company is not providing any tax, legal or financial advice, nor is the Company making any recommendations regarding Participant’s participation in the Plan, or Participant’s acquisition or sale of the Shares. Participant is hereby advised to consult with his or her own personal tax, legal and financial advisors regarding Participant’s participation in the Plan before taking any action related to the Plan. 29. Imposition of Other Requirements. The Company reserves the right to impose other requirements on Participant’s participation in the Plan, on the Restricted Stock Units and on any Shares, to the extent the Company determines it is necessary or advisable for legal or administrative reasons, and to require Participant to sign any additional agreements or undertakings that may be necessary to accomplish the foregoing. 30. Country-Specific Terms and Conditions. The following provisions shall only apply to Participant if Participant resides outside the United States: Notwithstanding any provisions of this Agreement to the contrary, the Restricted Stock Units grant shall be subject to any special terms and
conditions applicable for Participant’s country of residence (and country of employment, if different) as respectively set forth in an appendix to this Agreement (an “Appendix”). Further, if Participant transfers his or her residence and/or employment to another country reflected in an Appendix to this Agreement at the time of transfer, the special terms and conditions for such country will apply to Participant to the extent the Company determines, in its sole discretion, that the application of such terms and conditions is necessary or advisable in order to comply with local law, rules and regulations or to facilitate the operation and administration of the Restricted Stock Units and the Plan (or the Company may establish alternative terms and conditions as may be necessary or advisable to accommodate Participant’s transfer). In all circumstances, any applicable section(s) of the Appendix shall constitute part of this Agreement. 31. Waiver. Participant acknowledges that a waiver by the Company of breach of any provision of this Agreement will not operate or be construed as a waiver of any other provision of this Agreement, or of any subsequent breach by Participant or any other participant in the Plan.
APPENDIX TO 10x GENOMICS, INC. 2019 OMNIBUS INCENTIVE PLAN RESTRICTED STOCK UNIT AGREEMENT FOR NON-UNITED STATES PARTICIPANTS Terms and Conditions This Appendix includes additional terms and conditions that govern the Restricted Stock Units granted to Participant under the Plan if he or she resides in one of the countries listed below. Certain capitalized terms used but not defined in this Appendix have the meanings set forth in the Plan and/or the main body of the Agreement. Notifications This Appendix also includes information regarding exchange controls and certain other issues of which Participant should be aware with respect to his or her participation in the Plan. The information is based on the securities, exchange control and other laws in effect in the respective countries as of January 2021. Such laws are often complex and change frequently.
