Your employment with the Company will be at-will and may be terminated by the Company at any time, subject to the terms and conditions of that certain Aramark Agreement Relating to Employment and Post-Employment Competition to be executed by and between you and the Company in the form attached to this letter agreement as Exhibit A (the Employment Agreement) upon or prior to your commencement of employment on January 7, 2020.

Your bonus in respect of fiscal year 2020 shall be pro-rated based on the number of days you were employed in
|fiscal year 2020, relative to the number of days in such fiscal year, and otherwise paid subject to achievement of applicable performance metrics in accordance with the Bonus Plan.|

Upon the occurrence of certain severance-qualifying events as set forth in the Employment Agreement or if you resign for any reason after the first anniversary of your hire date, you will be entitled to basic group medical, dental and vision insurance coverage from the date of your termination of employment until the date you attain age 65, pursuant to the terms and conditions thereof as set forth in the Employment Agreement.
Additionally, you will be required to hold Common Stock having a fair market value equal to three times your Base Salary (or such other amount of Common Stock as the Board may determine applicable to you in your capacity as CFO), all in accordance with Company stock ownership guidelines, as in effect from time to time.
