Participant may elect to make payment: (i) in cash or by check or wire transfer (or any combination
Nonqualified Stock Option Agreement (Non-U.S.) – Page 3 thereof) or (ii) and to the extent permitted by applicable law, by delivery of a notice that Participant has placed a market sell order with a broker with respect to Shares then issuable upon exercise of the portion of the Option being so exercised, and that the broker has been directed to pay a sufficient portion of the net proceeds of the sale to the Company in satisfaction of the Withholding Taxes; provided, that payment of such proceeds is then made to the Company upon settlement of such sale; and provided, further, that the Committee may, in its sole discretion, allow such withholding obligation to be satisfied by any other method described in Section 13 of the Plan and, if Participant is a Section 16 officer of the Company under the Exchange Act, then the Committee shall establish the method of withholding required to be utilized by the Participant from alternatives available under the Plan prior to the exercise of any portion of the Option. (d) Upon receipt of the notice of exercise and any payment or other documentation as may be necessary pursuant to Sections 6(a), 6(b), 6(c) and 7 above relating to the Shares in respect of which the Option is being exercised, the Company will, subject to the Plan and this Agreement, take such action as may be necessary to effect the transfer to Participant of the number of Shares as to which such exercise was effective. (e) 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 purchased upon exercise of the Option until (i) the Option has been exercised pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and Participant has paid the full purchase price for the number of Shares in respect of which the Option was exercised and any applicable Tax Obligations and (ii) the Company has issued the Shares in connection with such exercise. 7. Tax Withholding. (a) Tax Obligations. Regardless of any action taken by the Company or any other Subsidiary with respect to 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 Option, including the grant, vesting or exercise of the Option, 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 Option to reduce or eliminate Participant’s liability for Tax Obligations. At the time of exercise of the Option, 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 Option is exercised, 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 Option. The Company shall have no obligation to process the exercise of the Option or to deliver Shares until the Tax Obligations as described in this Section have been satisfied by Participant. (b) 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 exercise of the Option by deducting from the Shares otherwise issuable to Participant upon such exercise a number of whole Shares having a Fair Market Value, as determined by the Company as of the date of exercise, not in excess of the amount of such Tax Obligations determined by the applicable minimum
Nonqualified Stock Option Agreement (Non-U.S.) – Page 4 statutory withholding rates. The Company may require Participant to direct a broker, upon the exercise of the Option, to sell a portion of the Shares subject to the Option 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. 8. Termination of Employment or Service. (a) Subject to Section 8(c) hereof, in the event that Participant’s employment with, or service to, the Company Group terminates for any reason, any unvested portion of the Option will be forfeited and, except as otherwise specifically provided for in this Section 8, 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) If Participant’s employment or service is terminated by the Company Group for Cause or by Participant when grounds existed for Cause at the time thereof, the vested and unvested portions of the Option will terminate as of the Termination Date. (c) In the event (i) Participant’s employment with, or service to, the Company Group is terminated by the Company due to death or Disability, the vested portion of the Option will remain exercisable for one year thereafter (but in no event beyond the Option Period) and (ii) Participant’s employment with, or service to, the Company Group is terminated for any other reason (subject to Section 8(b)), the vested portion of the Option will remain exercisable for ninety (90) days thereafter (but in no event beyond the Option Period); provided, that, in each case, the Option Period will expire immediately upon the occurrence of a Restrictive Covenant Violation. (d) Participant’s rights with respect to the Option 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 Option). 9. Restrictions on Transfer. (a) Participant may not assign, alienate, pledge, attach, sell or otherwise transfer or encumber the Option or Participant’s right under the Option 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). 10. Repayment of Proceeds; Clawback Policy. The Shares subject to the Option and
Nonqualified Stock Option Agreement (Non-U.S.) – Page 5 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 or the Company discovers after a termination of employment or service that grounds existed for Cause at the time thereof, then 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 excess, if any, of (a) 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 upon the sale or other disposition of, or distributions in respect of, any Shares acquired upon exercise of the Option (limited, in the case of the Company discovering after a termination of employment or service that grounds existed for Cause at the time thereof, to any such Shares acquired after the date on which grounds for a termination for Cause first existed) over (b) the aggregate Cost (if any) of such Shares. For purposes of this Agreement, “Cost” means, in respect of any Share, the Exercise Price, to the extent paid by Participant for such Share, as proportionately adjusted for all subsequent distributions on the Shares and other recapitalizations and less the amount of any distributions made with respect to the Share pursuant to the Company’s organizational documents; provided, that Cost may not be less than zero. Any reference in this Agreement to grounds existing for a termination of employment with Cause will be determined without regard to any notice period, cure period, or other procedural delay or event required prior to finding of or termination with, Cause. 11. No Right to Continued Employment or Service. Neither the Plan nor this Agreement nor Participant’s receipt of the Option 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. 12. Service Conditions. In accepting the Option, 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 Option; and Participant’s right to exercise the Option 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 Option 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
Nonqualified Stock Option Agreement (Non-U.S.) – Page 6 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 Option is voluntary and occasional and does not create any contractual or other right to receive future grants of Options, or benefits in lieu of Options, even if Options have been granted repeatedly in the past. (e) All decisions with respect to future Option 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 Option 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 Option 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 Option grant will not be interpreted to form an employment contract or relationship with the Company or Subsidiary; and furthermore the Option 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 Option will have no value. If Participant exercises the Option and obtains Shares, the value of those Shares acquired upon exercise may increase or decrease in value, even below the Exercise Price. (l) No claim or entitlement to compensation or damages arises from termination of the Option or diminution in value of the Option or Shares purchased through exercise of the Option 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. 13. Adjustments. The terms of this Agreement, including, without limitation, (a) the number of Shares subject to the Option and (b) the Exercise Price specified herein, will be subject to adjustment in accordance with Section 11 of the Plan. 14. Securities Laws; Cooperation. Upon the vesting of any unvested portion of the Option, Participant will make or enter into such written representations, warranties and agreements as
Nonqualified Stock Option Agreement (Non-U.S.) – Page 7 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. 15. 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. 16. 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 Options 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. 17. 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. 18. 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. 19. Data Privacy. The following provisions shall only apply to Participant if he or she resides outside 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 Option grant materials by and among, as applicable, Participant’s
Nonqualified Stock Option Agreement (Non-U.S.) – Page 8 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. 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 the Option 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
Nonqualified Stock Option Agreement (Non-U.S.) – Page 9 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 ***@***. 20. Limitation on Rights; No Right to Future Grants; Extraordinary Item of Compensation. By accepting this Agreement and the grant of the Option 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 Option is exceptional, voluntary and occasional and it does not create any contractual or other right to receive future grants of options, or benefits in lieu of options, even if options have been granted in the past; (c) all determinations with respect to future option grants, if any, including the grant date, the number of Shares granted, the exercise price and the exercise date or dates, 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 Option without adverse consequences to Participant’s continued employment relationship with the Company Group; (e) the value of the Option is an extraordinary item that is outside the scope of Participant’s employment contract, if
Nonqualified Stock Option Agreement (Non-U.S.) – Page 10 any, and nothing can or must automatically be inferred from such employment contract or its consequences; (f) the Option 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 Option will not constitute an “acquired right” under the applicable law of any jurisdiction; (g) if the underlying Shares do not increase in value, the Option will have no value; (h) if Participant exercises the Option and acquires Shares, the value of such Shares may increase or decrease in value, even below the Exercise Price; 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 Option proceeds in consequence of the termination of Participant’s employment for any reason whatsoever and whether or not in breach of contract. 21. Award Administrator. The Company may from time to time designate a third party (an “Award Administrator”) to assist the Company in the implementation, administration and management of the Plan and any Option 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 Option exercises by Participants. 22. Book Entry Delivery of Shares. Whenever reference in this Agreement is made to the issuance or delivery of certificates representing one or more Shares, the Company may elect to issue or deliver such Shares in book entry form in lieu of certificates. 23. 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. 24. Section 409A. It is not intended that the Option granted hereunder be subject to Section 409A of the Code. 25. 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. 26. Acceptance and Agreement by Participant; Forfeiture upon Failure to Accept. Participant’s rights under the Option will lapse ninety (90) days from the Date of Grant, and the Option 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. 27. 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
Nonqualified Stock Option Agreement (Non-U.S.) – Page 11 Participant’s acquisition or sale of the underlying Shares.
