The respective prior notice will run from the fifteenth (15th) day of the month if notice was given on or before such a date, or from the first (1st) day of the following month if notice was given after the fifteenth (15th) of the month.

Notwithstanding the above, the Employer may terminate the Contract with immediate effect without notice and with no liability to make any further payment to the Executive (other than in respect of amounts accrued due and unpaid at the date of termination) if the Executive commits an act of gross misconduct in accordance with article L.124-10 of the Luxembourg Labor Code.

Executive _MM_/ Employer _WBS_ Page 5 of 16
Article 4 - Remuneration
The Executive’s annual gross base salary shall be 504,300 Euros (based on the last revision to Employee’s salary which took place on August 1, 2018, prior to the Amendment Date). This annual gross base salary shall be payable in twenty-four (24) installments. In addition, the Employer will pay to the Executive (i) an annual Cost of Living Allowance of 18,000 Euros, which shall be payable in twenty-four (24) installments, and (ii) an annual Housing Allowance of 50,000 Euros, which shall also be payable in twenty-four (24) installments.
In accordance with article L.223-1 of the Luxembourg Labor Code, the salary shall be adapted and vary proportionally with the variations of the index of cost of living in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The above salary has been fixed in consideration of the index applicable at the date on which this Contract becomes effective (Salary Index at the time of the signature of the present Contract: 814.40 as of August 1, 2018).
The Executive's salary, Cost of Living Allowance and Housing Allowance shall accrue from day to day and be paid in arrears twice monthly directly into the Executive's bank account. The Executive shall inform the Employer of all necessary details relating thereto.
The Employer hereby informs the Executive that in order to fulfill the obligations under the Contract and to pay his salary, the following information about the Executive may be transmitted: name, address, civil status, date of birth, any documents given during the recruiting and employment proceedings (including the curriculum vitae), the Contract and salary, proof of payment, all raises or modifications of salary, the hours effectively worked, any correspondence with the employees as well as all other documents relating to the Contract (such as holiday requests or Incapacity certificates). The Executive consents to the transfer of the above personal information within the group of companies of the Employer, including outside of the European Union, as contemplated by Article 19 Paragraph 1(a) of the Luxembourg law on Data Protection of August 2, 2002. The Executive is permitted to access the above information and may demand the rectification of any error thereupon. The Employer will use best efforts to keep this information confidential and to disclose it only when legally required. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Executive is designated as a Section 16 Officer of Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A., the Company will be authorized to publicly disclose such information to the extent required pursuant to the rules and regulations promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Executive expressly consents to such disclosures.
Upon satisfaction of the relevant performance criteria in accordance with Altisource’s Incentive Plan, as amended from time to time by the Employer in its sole discretion, the Executive may be entitled to an annual discretionary bonus as per a scorecard as amended from time to time, which scorecard will be made available to the Executive as set forth below. At the target performance level at which the Executive meets the Employer’s performance expectations, the Executive can anticipate earning approximately 336,000 Euros in incentive compensation on an annual basis, less applicable withholding taxes (based on the last revision to Executive’s incentive compensation target amount which took place on November 12, 2018, prior to the Amendment Date). If the Executive exceeds
Executive _MM_/ Employer _WBS_ Page 6 of 16
the Employer’s performance expectations, the Executive can anticipate earning up to 504,000 Euros in incentive compensation on an annual basis, less applicable withholding taxes. Payment of any annual incentive may be made entirely in cash or in a combination of cash and restricted share units (or other similar equity instrument) at the Company’s discretion; provided that the Company may offer Executive the option to select the percentage of his incentive payment that will be paid in equity, within a range determined by the Compensation Committee of the Board (the “Committee”); and provided further, that the proportion of the equity that may be paid in equity shall in all cases be determined by the Committee. There is no legal entitlement to the annual incentive, and payment is at the sole discretion of the Employer. Any incentive will be prorated for the actual time that the Executive has worked for the Employer during the applicable working year. At the beginning of each calendar year, in a timely manner and not later than the end of March of each year, the Employer shall provide to the Executive a scorecard outlining in writing the performance expectations linked to achieving the discretionary incentive in that year; should the Employer fail to provide such scorecard, the incentive payment shall be deemed due notwithstanding whether or not the Executive remains employed by the Company through the date of payment. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, it is understood and agreed by the Executive that the Company shall have discretion to approve reasonable amendments to his scorecard throughout the year (including after March 31 of such year) as deemed appropriate by the Company in light of changed conditions or changes to the Company’s business during the year.
In addition, to the extent a Long-Term Incentive Plan (“LTIP”) is approved for similarly situated executives, Executive will be eligible to participate in the LTIP and receive a target LTIP award value of approximately 336,000 Euros. Employee’s participation in the LTIP, his receipt of any LTIP award (whether in cash, equity instruments or some combination thereof) and the performance metrics used to determine any LTIP award shall be at the sole discretion of the Compensation Committee.
The Executive will be eligible for certain relocation benefits while employed in Luxembourg in accordance with the Altisource Relocation Plan, provided to the Executive by the Employer and incorporated in this Contract by reference.
If the Executive’s employment with the Employer terminates by reason other than (i) termination by the Company for gross misconduct as described in article L.124-10 of the Luxembourg Labor Code or (ii) Executive’s voluntary resignation, and the Executive relocates within 180 days of such termination, the Employer will reimburse the Executive for the relocation costs back to Switzerland (or a location in the European Union) or an equivalent lump sum, at the Executive’s discretion; provided however, that such costs shall not exceed the original costs associated with the Executive’s “General Relocation Assistance” described in the Altisource Relocation Plan.
Executive _MM_/ Employer _WBS_ Page 7 of 16
It is expressly agreed that any bonus, premium or any other fringe benefits granted to the Executive not arising from any legal or contractual provision or regulation shall be deemed to be a gift, whatever their frequency and their amount, and may therefore not be considered as vested rights to the benefit of the Executive.
The salary and other benefits of the Executive shall be payable after deduction of all compulsory contributions to the social security system (if applicable) in existence in Luxembourg and after deduction of the retentions at source of income tax (if applicable) and, should the case arise, any other charges imposed by Luxembourg Law whenever and if due.
If (i) the Contract is terminated by the Employer for reasons other than the Executive’s gross misconduct as described in article L.124-10 of the Luxembourg Labor Code or (ii) the Executive terminates the Contract for Good Reason (clauses (i) and (ii), each a “Termination Event” and together the “Termination Events”), then also in exchange for the non-competition covenants contained in Article 9(a) herein and the Executive’s other obligations set forth in this Contract, the Employer shall provide the Executive with a minimum guaranteed compensation payment of 504,300 Euros (the “Minimum Guaranteed Compensation Payment”), in addition to any other amounts that may be due from the Employer to the Executive under this Contract and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Contract.
If the Contract is terminated following a Termination Event, then, during the notice period, the Executive shall notify the Employer of all existing or potential claims that he may have against the Company (if any), and the Parties shall negotiate a separation and release agreement in good faith to settle any matters relating to the employment relationship and its termination.
For the avoidance of doubt, following a Termination Event, the Minimum Guaranteed Compensation Payment shall be due under all circumstances, including, without limitation, if the Parties are unable to successfully negotiate a separation and release agreement during the notice period.
Article 5 - Working Hours and Holidays
The working hours shall be fixed in accordance with the applicable legal provisions in the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg, and the Executive's salary is based on a minimum average of forty (40) working hours per week and eight (8) hours per day scheduled in principle from Monday to Friday. The Executive hereby acknowledges that general working hours or overtime statutory provisions are not applicable to his position as a higher level employee ("cadre supérieur") within the meaning of article L.211-3 of the Luxembourg Labor Code, and in accordance with article L.211-27 (4) of the Luxembourg Labor Code. Working hours may thus vary according to the Employer's requirements.
Executive _MM_/ Employer _WBS_ Page 8 of 16
The Executive shall have the right to twenty-five (25) days of paid annual leave, in addition to the Luxembourg public holidays, notwithstanding article L.233-4 of the Luxembourg Labor Code's provisions.
The Executive will respect a reasonable delay between requesting leave from the Employer and taking it, in order to not perturb the functioning of the Employer in accordance with article L.233-10 of the Luxembourg Labor Code. The Employer shall respect the Executive's request to the extent that the request does not perturb the functioning of the Employer or conflict with other employees' leave.
The Executive shall take, and the Employer shall allow the Executive to take, his accumulated leave in full before the end of each calendar year, in accordance with articles L.233-9 and L.233-10 of the Luxembourg Labor Code.
In the event that business reasons prevent the Executive from taking all his annual leave entitlement during the calendar year, he may transfer the remaining leave entitlement to the next calendar year, in which case it shall expire on the 31st of March, unless prevented again by business reasons. In case of termination of the present Contract, any days not taken will be paid to the Executive.
Article 6 - Incapacity
If the Executive is incapable of working for any reason of illness or accident, then he shall notify the Employer or its representative as soon as possible on the first day of Incapacity, either personally or by way of an intermediary. Such notification may be made orally or in writing.
The Executive has three (3) days to provide the Employer with a medical certificate in which the beginning and the expected duration of Incapacity is stated. The Employer reserves the right to request a medical counter-examination.
Subject to the Executive's compliance with the provisions of the Luxembourg Labor Code, he shall, in principle, continue to receive his full salary and contractual benefits (if any) from the Employer during the initial sickness period provided by article L.121-6 of the Luxembourg Labor Code.
Executive _MM_/ Employer _WBS_ Page 9 of 16
Article 7 - Confidential Information / Employer properties
The Executive shall treat as confidential all information concerning the activities of the Company, and he shall not disclose to third parties, or to other employees, any information of which he may have been made aware during the present Contract, notwithstanding that which is reasonably necessary to permit normal performance of their respective duties by the parties concerned, and with the exception of information already known or already public.
The Executive undertakes both during this employment with the Employer and at any time after the termination thereof not to perform or participate in any act of unfair competition.
Any breach of this obligation occurring while the Contract is in place shall constitute a serious fault rendering immediately and definitively impossible any further relationship between the Employer and the Executive and justifying the immediate dismissal of the Executive without any notice or indemnity and without prejudice to any further proceedings or claims which may be exercised by the Employer.
All notes, reports, listings, files, documents and contacts howsoever related to the Employer are and shall remain the exclusive property of the Employer and shall be created, processed and stored by the Executive in a confidential manner exclusively on behalf of the Employer.
When the present Contract shall come to an end, the Executive must return to the Employer all documents as well as copies of such documents which may be in the possession of or under the control of the Executive, and the Executive undertakes to do everything to assist the Employer to recover all documents which may be beyond the control of the Executive.
Article 8 - Obligations
Throughout the duration of this Contract, the Executive will work exclusively for the Employer and will not take up any other occupation or engage in any act which is directly or indirectly competitive with the business of the Employer or any of its affiliated companies and to its detriment.
Throughout the duration of this Contract, the Executive shall not have any direct or indirect interest in any other business or organization if that business or organization competes or might reasonably be considered by the Employer to compete with the Company or any of its affiliated companies or if this impairs or might reasonably be considered to impair the Executive’s ability to act in the best interests of the Company or any of its affiliated companies.
Executive _MM_/ Employer _WBS_ Page 10 of 16
Article 9 - Non-competition and Non-solicitation
Upon a Termination Event, in consideration for the Minimum Guaranteed Compensation Payment, the Executive hereby undertakes that, during the Restrictive Period, he will not a) run within the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg or in the United States of America a business similar to or in competition with the Business of the Company, or b) enter into employment with a company whose business is similar to or in competition with the Business of the Company. As used in this Article 9(a), “Business of the Company” means the products and services engaged in by the Company in the United States of America including real estate brokerage, asset management and field services for mortgage servicers, real estate auction online marketplaces, real estate buy-and-sell online marketplaces, mortgage origination services and any other products and services that the Executive was responsible for or involved with during the term of the Contract and that the Company is engaged in upon termination of the Contract. In that regard, the Executive shall not actively proceed to engage in, provide any executive, managerial, supervisory, sales, marketing, research or customer-related services to, or own (other than ownership of less than one percent (1%) of the outstanding voting securities of any entity, or any affiliate thereof, the voting securities of which are traded on a national securities exchange) a beneficial or legal interest in, any business (other than the Company) which (i) conducts similar business as the Business of the Company or (ii) is competitive or likely to be competitive with the Business of the Company.
If the present Contract terminates other than pursuant to a Termination Event, the Executive hereby undertakes that he will not engage in the activities described in Article 9(a) above for a period of six (6) months. In consideration for this obligation, the Employer will pay to the Executive six (6) months’ base salary; provided however, that the Employer may waive Executive’s obligations pursuant to this Article 9(b) unilaterally on condition that it notifies the Executive (by email or mail) within two (2) weeks from the notice of termination of the Contract by either party. If the Employer waives these obligations and provides the required notification, the Employer will be relieved from the payment obligations set forth in this Article 9(b).
Throughout the duration of this Contract and for a period of two (2) years following its termination, the Executive will not actively solicit or hire, or actively assist any other person or entity in soliciting or hiring, any employee of the Company or any of its affiliated companies to perform services for any entity (other than the Company or any other affiliated companies), or attempt to induce any such employee to leave the Company or any of its affiliated companies.
Throughout the duration of this Contract and for a period of two (2) years following its termination, the Executive will not actively solicit or hire, or actively assist any other person or entity in soliciting or hiring, any client of the Company or any of its affiliated companies, or attempt to induce any such client to leave the Company or any of its affiliated companies.
Executive _MM_/ Employer _WBS_ Page 11 of 16

The Executive expressly agrees that the provisions of Section 9 of the Contract may be enforced against him in any court or competent jurisdiction in the United States.
In the event that this article is determined by a court which has jurisdiction to be unenforceable in part or in whole, the court shall be deemed to have the authority to revise any provision of this Contract to the minimum extent necessary to be enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.
