Your primary responsibilities will be to assume the top leadership of the Company, direct the organization to ensure the attainment of revenue and profit goals, drive optimal return on invested capital and grow shareholder value, subject to the oversight and supervision of the Board. As long as you continue in your role as the Companys Chief Executive Officer, you also will serve as a member of Board. The effective date of your joining the Board will be the date of the Boards approval of the appointment.

In conjunction with your annual performance review, which will occur at or about the start of each fiscal year (currently April 1), your base salary will be reviewed by the Board, and may be subject to adjustment by the Board based upon various factors including, but not limited to, your performance and the Companys profitability. Your base salary will not be reduced except as part of a salary reduction program that similarly affects all members of the executive staff reporting to the Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
Bonus. Starting with FY22 (April 1, 2021), while you are Chief Executive Officer, you will be eligible to participate in 8x8s discretionary incentive plan. Your total annual target bonus will be 100% of your annual base salary.

The shares granted pursuant to the equity award will be 100% vested as of the Bonus Payment Date. In the event that you experience a Constructive Termination (as defined in the 8x8, Inc. 2017 Executive Change-in-Control and Severance Policy, as amended and restated as of January 31, 2019 (the Policy), as modified by Section 5(b) below) prior to the Bonus Payment Date, you will be granted the 100% vested Bonus Award on the date of such termination, either (a) prorated based on the number of days of completed service during FY21 if such termination is not In Connection with a Change-in-Control (as defined in the Policy) or (b) at 100% of target value if such termination is In Connection with a Change-in-Control (as defined in the Policy), as applicable, in accordance with the treatment of bonuses set forth under the Benefit Schedules as of January 31, 2019 of the Policy for Tier One participants.

Time-Based Stock Awards. You will be granted an award of approximately $9,000,000 in value of restricted stock units (RSUs) representing the right to acquire shares of Common Stock upon vesting.

The shares will vest over a three-year period, with one-third (1/3) vesting on the first anniversary of the Grant Date, and the remainder vesting in eight (8) equal quarterly installments thereafter, subject to your continued employment or other qualifying association with the Company or any of its affiliates, the terms of this Agreement, and the Policy.
Performance Stock Award. You will be granted a performance stock unit award of approximately $9,000,000 in value of performance stock units (PSUs). The actual number of shares subject to the PSU award will be determined by dividing the value of the PSU award by the 30 days trailing average (based on trading days) of 8x8s closing stock price prior to the Grant Date. The performance metrics and vesting terms applicable to this award are as set forth in the attached Exhibit A.
Ongoing Annual Equity: Subject to approval by the Board, you will receive annual stock-based compensation beginning in FY 2022 (April 1, 2021), with the first such annual award to be granted in June 2021, and in any event prior to any Corporate Transaction (as defined below) that occurs after the Start Date, including an award of RSUs for a number of shares of Common Stock which will have a target value equal to $2,500,000 and an award of PSUs for a number of shares of Common Stock which will have a target value equal to $2,500,000 effective during the first quarter of FY 2022.

To the extent that any of the payments and benefits provided for in this Agreement or otherwise payable to you (the Payments) constitute parachute payments within the meaning of Section 280G of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the Code), the amount of such Payments shall, at your option, be either:
the full amount of the Payments, or
a reduced amount that would result in no portion of the Payments being subject to the excise tax imposed pursuant to Section 4999 of the Code (the Excise Tax),
whichever of the foregoing amounts, taking into account the applicable federal, state and local income taxes and the Excise Tax, results in the receipt by you, on an after-tax basis, of the greatest amount of benefit.

In addition, if you are a specified employee as determined pursuant to Section 409A as of the date of your separation from service, as so defined, and if any payments or entitlements provided for in this Agreement constitute a deferral of compensation within the meaning of Section 409A and cannot be paid or provided in the manner provided herein without subjecting you to additional tax, interest or penalties under Section 409A, then any such payment or entitlement which is otherwise payable during the first six months following your separation from service shall be paid or provided to you in a lump sum on the earlier of (i) the first business day of the seventh calendar month immediately following the month in which your separation from service occurs and (ii) the date of your death.
