AMENDED AND RESTATED FORM OF PERFORMANCE STOCK UNIT AWARD

Aramark (formerly known as ARAMARK Holdings Corporation) (the Company) hereby grants the opportunity to vest in a number of Performance Stock Units determined based on the Target Number of PSUs set forth on the Certificate of Grant attached to this Award and made a part hereof (the Certificate of Grant) to the Participant, on the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth including on Schedule I which is made a part hereof. This grant is made pursuant to the terms of the Company 2013 Amended and Restated Stock Incentive Plan (the Plan), which Plan, as amended from time to time, is incorporated herein by reference and made a part of this Award. Each Performance Stock Unit (a PSU) represents the unfunded, unsecured right of the Participant to receive a share of Common Stock of the Company (each a Share), subject to the terms and conditions hereof, on the date(s) specified herein. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the same meanings as in the Plan and the Certificate of Grant.
Performance and Service Vesting Conditions.
Subject to the remainder of the terms and conditions of this Award, so long as the Participant continues Employment through the relevant Vesting Dates the Participant shall (a) earn, and be eligible to become vested in, a number of PSUs equal to a percentage of the Target Number of PSUs based on the level of the Companys achievement of the performance conditions, with respect to the applicable performance period (the Performance Period), each as set forth on Schedule I, on the date such achievement is certified by the Committee following the end of the Performance Period (the Determination Date) (such number of PSUs, once established, the Earned PSUs) and (b) on each applicable Vesting Date (or on the Determination Date, if it occurs after a Vesting Date), become vested in the corresponding percentage of the Earned PSUs, each as set forth on the Certificate of Grant.
Payment of Shares.
The Company shall, subject to the remainder of this Award, transfer to the Participant a number of Shares of the Company equal to the number (if any) of Earned PSUs under this Award at such time as the Participant becomes vested under the provisions of Section 2 above in the right to such transfer (x) as set forth on the Certificate of Grant under each Vesting Date, as applicable, so long as the Participant remains employed with the Company or any of its Affiliates through each such Vesting Date, or (y) as otherwise provided in Section 3(b) or (c) below (in whole Shares only with the Participant receiving a cash payment equal to the Fair Market Value of any fractional Share on or about the transfer date); provided, however, that in the event a Vesting Date occurs prior to the Determination Date, no transfer of Shares shall occur until the Determination Date.
Notwithstanding Section 3(a) of this Award,
upon Participants Disability (a Special Termination), which occurs prior to the Determination Date, the PSUs shall remain outstanding and unvested through the Determination Date, and the Specified Portion (as defined below) of the Earned PSUs (if any) scheduled to vest on the Determination Date shall become vested PSUs as of the Determination Date; and Shares equal to such number of Earned PSUs shall be transferred on or as soon as practicable following the Determination Date, and the remaining PSUs which do not become vested pursuant to this clause (i) shall be automatically forfeited; for purposes of this Section 3(b)(i), the term Specified Portion shall mean (x) one-third (1/3) if the Special Termination occurs prior to the beginning of the second fiscal year of the Performance Period, (y) two-thirds (2/3) if the Special Termination occurs on or after the beginning of the second fiscal year of the Performance Period and prior to the beginning of the third fiscal year of the Performance Period and (z) the entire amount if the Special Termination occurs on or after the beginning of the third fiscal year of the Performance Period;
upon Participants death or Retirement with Notice (as defined below), (A) which occurs prior to the Determination Date, the PSUs shall remain outstanding and unvested through the Determination Date, and the installment of Earned PSUs (if any) scheduled to vest on each remaining Vesting Date shall become vested PSUs as of each such Vesting Date and (B) which occurs after the Determination Date, the installment of Earned PSUs (if any) scheduled to vest on each remaining Vesting Date shall immediately become vested PSUs; and, in either case of (A) or (B), as applicable, Shares equal to the number of Earned PSUs scheduled to vest on the applicable Vesting Date shall be transferred, and the remaining PSUs which do not become vested pursuant to this Section shall be forfeited; and
upon a Termination of Relationship for any reason other than as set forth in clauses (i) and (ii) above, all outstanding PSUs shall be forfeited and immediately cancelled; provided, however, that in the case of a Termination of Relationship after a Vesting Date but prior to the Determination Date, the corresponding portion of Earned PSUs (if any) shall remain outstanding and shall become vested PSUs as of the Determination Date.
Also notwithstanding Section 3(a) or (b) of this Award, in accordance with the terms of Section 13 of the Plan, in the event of a Termination of Relationship of the Participant by the Company or any of its Affiliates (or successors in interest) without Cause or by the Participant for Good Reason, in each case, that occurs within two years following a Change of Control, the following treatment (under clauses (i) or (ii), as applicable) will apply with respect to any then outstanding PSUs:
if such termination occurs prior to the Determination Date, then such Performance Period (to the extent not completed) shall end as of such date,
|then the Target Number of PSUs shall become vested on the date of such Termination of Relationship, and a number of Shares equal to such number of PSUs shall be distributed to the Participant as soon as practicable following the date of such Termination of Relationship; or|
if such termination occurs on or following the Determination Date, then the Earned PSUs (if any) shall immediately become vested on the date of such Termination of Relationship and a number of Shares equal to such number of Earned PSUs shall be distributed to the Participant as soon as practicable following the date of such Termination of Relationship;
provided that the Committee may determine that, in lieu of Shares and/or fractional Shares deliverable to the Participant under clauses (i) or (ii) above, the Participant shall receive a cash payment equal to the Fair Market Value of such Shares (or fractional Shares, as the case may be) on the Change of Control.
Upon each vesting event of any Earned PSUs and the corresponding transfer of Shares as a result thereof, in each case in accordance with Sections 3(a), 3(b) or 3(c) of this Award, as applicable, the Earned PSUs with respect to which Shares have been transferred hereunder shall be extinguished on the relevant transfer dates. In compliance with Section 409A of the Code, in no event shall any transfer occur later than March 15 of the calendar year following the calendar year in which the applicable vesting event occurs under this Award.
As used herein, the term Retirement with Notice means the Participants Termination of Relationship due to his retirement from the Company and its Affiliates after providing the Company with at least 6 months prior written notice of such intended retirement (and with such notice having been delivered upon or after the Participants attainment of age 62) after achieving (consecutively, disregarding breaks in service, or a combination thereof) at least five (5) full years of employment with the Company and its Affiliates following October 7, 2019 (or such earlier date as approved by the Committee in its sole discretion); provided, however, that if the Company involuntarily terminates the Participant without Cause or the Participant dies or incurs a Disability after the Participant delivers the notice described in this sentence, such termination shall not fail to qualify as a Retirement with Notice by virtue of the termination occurring less than the number of months of the notice period after the notice date, such that, for purposes of this Section 3, the Participant shall not be treated as having had a Termination of Relationship prior to the effective date of the Retirement with Notice; and provided, further, that the Committee may, in its sole discretion, waive any such notice, in whole or in part, as may be required for Participant to effect a Retirement with Notice.
If on any date while PSUs are outstanding hereunder, the Company shall pay any dividend on the Shares (other than a dividend payable in Shares), the number of PSUs (if any) held by the Participant shall be increased by a number equal to: (a)
|the product of (x) the number of outstanding PSUs held by the Participant as of the related dividend record date, multiplied by (y) a dollar amount equal to the per Share amount of any cash dividend (or, in the case of any dividend payable in whole or in part other than in cash or Shares, the per Share value of such dividend, as determined in good faith by the Committee), divided by (b) the Fair Market Value of a Share on the payment date of such dividend.|
In the case of any dividend declared on Shares that is payable in the form of Shares, the number of PSUs, if any, held by the Participant shall be increased by a number equal to the product of (I) the number of outstanding PSUs held by the Participant as of the related dividend record date, multiplied by (II) the number of Shares (including any fraction thereof) payable as a dividend on a Share. Shares shall be transferred with respect to all additional PSUs granted pursuant to this Section 4 at the same time as Shares are transferred with respect to the Earned PSUs to which such additional PSUs were attributable.
For purposes of this Section 4, the number of PSUs held by the Participant as of the applicable dividend record date shall be deemed to equal (i) zero (0), if such dividend record date occurs prior to the Determination Date or (ii) the Earned PSUs (if any) (with any additional PSUs granted pursuant to this Section 4 to be added to the Earned PSUs held by Participant), if such dividend record date occurs after the Determination Date; provided that, if any dividend on Shares was paid by the Company during the period beginning on the Date of Grant and ending on the Determination Date, on the Determination Date, an additional number of PSUs calculated in accordance with this Section 4, assuming Participant had held the number of Earned PSUs (if any) on the record date of such dividend(s), shall be immediately added to the number of Earned PSUs established as of the Determination Date.
Adjustments Upon Certain Events. In the event of any event described in Section 12 of the Plan occurring after the Date of Grant, the adjustment provisions (including cash payments) as provided for under Section 12 of the Plan shall apply (without duplication of any dividend adjustments reflected pursuant to Section 4 hereof).
Restriction on Transfer. The PSUs may not be transferred, pledged, assigned, hypothecated or otherwise disposed of in any way by the Participant, except (i) if permitted by the Board or the Committee, (ii) by will or the laws of descent and distribution or (iii) pursuant to beneficiary designation procedures approved by the Company, in each case in compliance with applicable laws. The PSUs shall not be subject to execution, attachment or similar process. Any attempted assignment, transfer, pledge, hypothecation or other disposition of the PSUs contrary to the provisions of this Award or the Plan shall be null and void and without effect.
Data Protection. By accepting this Award, the Participant consents to the processing (including international transfer) of personal data as set out in Exhibit A attached hereto for the purposes specified therein and to any additional or different processes required by applicable law, rule or regulation.
Participants Employment. Nothing in this Award or in the PSU shall confer upon the Participant any right to continue in the employ of the Company or any of its Affiliates or interfere in any way with the right of the Company and its Affiliates, in their sole discretion, to terminate the Participants employment or to increase or decrease the Participants compensation at any time.
No Acquired Rights. The Committee or the Board has the power to amend or terminate the Plan at any time and the opportunity given to the Participant to participate in the Plan and the grant of this Award is entirely at the discretion of the Committee or the Board and does not obligate the Company or any of its Affiliates to offer such participation in the future (whether on the same or different terms). The Participants participation in the Plan and the receipt of this Award is outside the terms of the Participants regular contract of employment and is therefore not to be considered part of any normal or expected compensation and that the termination of the Participants employment under any circumstances whatsoever will give the Participant no claim or right of action against the Company or its Affiliates in respect of any loss of rights under this Award or the Plan that may arise as a result of such termination of employment.
No Rights of a Stockholder. The Participant shall not have any rights as a stockholder of the Company until the Shares in question have been registered in the Companys register of stockholders.
The Participant will pay, or make provisions satisfactory to the Company for payment of any federal, state, local and other applicable taxes required to be withheld in connection with any issuance or transfer of Shares under this Award and to take such action as may be necessary in the opinion of the Company to satisfy all obligations for the payment of such taxes. If Participant has not made payment for applicable taxes, such taxes shall be paid by withholding Shares from the issuance or transfer of Shares due under this Award, rounded down to the nearest whole Share, with the balance to be paid in cash or withheld from compensation or other amount owing to the Participant from the Company or any Affiliate, and the Company and any such Affiliate is hereby authorized to withhold such amounts from any such issuance, transfer, compensation or other amount owing to the Participant.
If the Participants employment with the Company terminates prior to the issuance or transfer of any remaining Shares due to be issued or transferred to the Participant under this Award, the payment of any applicable withholding taxes with respect to any such issuance or transfer shall be made through the withholding of Shares from such issuance or transfer, rounded down to the nearest whole Share, with the balance to be paid in cash or withheld from compensation or other amount owing to the Participant from the Company or any Affiliate, as provided in Section 11(a) above.
Section 409A of the Code. The provisions of Section 14(v) of the Plan are hereby incorporated by reference and made a part hereof.
PSUs Subject to Plan. All PSUs are subject to the Plan. In the event of a conflict between any term or provision contained herein and a term or provision of the Plan, the applicable terms and provisions of the Plan will govern and prevail.

IN FURTHERANCE OF THE FOREGOING, THE INTERNAL LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK WILL CONTROL THE INTERPRETATION AND CONSTRUCTION OF THIS AWARD, EVEN IF UNDER SUCH JURISDICTIONS CHOICE OF LAW OR CONFLICT OF LAW ANALYSIS, THE SUBSTANTIVE LAW OF SOME OTHER JURISDICTION WOULD ORDINARILY APPLY.

Severability. It is the desire and intent of the parties hereto that the provisions of this Award be enforced to the fullest extent permissible under the laws and public policies applied in each jurisdiction in which enforcement is sought.
