Thank you for your interest in joining APi Group. I am very excited about this opportunity. I believe your talents will add greatly to our current senior leadership team.
Our offer of employment is as follows:

COMPENSATION & BENEFITS
During 2020 it is our intention to standardize our employment related documentation. Once these
documents have been finalized, we will provide you with a formal executive employment agreement (the 'Employment Agreement”) and other related documents in a form consistent with other executives at your
level in the Company. The Employment Agreement will include the economic terms outlined in this letter,
along with customary restrictive covenants, including non-competition and non-disclosure requirements.
$350,000.00 Base Salary
We have a “Pay for Performance" mentality at the Company, so our compensation philosophy relies heavily
on our management incentive plans. Base salary increases in the future at this level are intended to be moderate with the idea that the incentive side of the equation is the most influential in increasing total compensation. Base salary increases in the future depend on performance, attitude, work ethic and management's judgment of contribution to the goals of the Company.
Incentive Bonus Plan
You will be eligible to receive an annual target bonus of 40% of your base salary based on the satisfaction
of certain preestablished performance goals set by the Company's Compensation Committee. For the 2020 fiscal year, the payment of your annual bonus will be based on the same goals as the other senior
leadership team, i.e. achievement of the Company's 2020 Adjusted EBITDA budget.
Restricted Stock Units (RSUs)
Upon starting work at the Company, you will receive an initial equity award in the form of restricted stock
units ('RSUs”) with an initial value of $250,000 (which equates to 24,390 RSUs based on the recent
transaction price of $10.25 per share). The RSUs will be awarded under the Company's 2019 Equity
Incentive Plan and will vest equally over a 3-year period. The material terms of the RSUs will be set forth in
a Restricted Stock Unit Agreement to be entered into between you and the Company after the standardized paperwork has been developed.
As will be further outlined in your Employment Agreement, in the event that the Company terminates your employment without “Cause” (to be defined in your Employment Agreement), provided you execute, and do
not revoke, a general release in favor of the Company within thirty (30) days of the date of your termination,
in addition to your accrued but unpaid base salary, bonuses and/or other benefits, the Company shall
continue to pay you the base salary you were receiving immediately prior to such termination for a period of twelve (12) months thereafter, payable in installments through payroll subject to applicable withholding and
other taxes (the "Severance Payments").
Per the APi Group Plan documents that you have previously received.
