KEY EMPLOYEES’ DEFERRED COMPENSATION PROGRAM OF
THE BRINK’S COMPANY
(Amended and Restated as of December 9, 2021)


PREAMBLE
The Key Employees’ Deferred Compensation Program of The Brink’s Company, as amended and restated (the “Program”), provides an opportunity to certain employees to defer receipt of (a) up to 90% of their cash incentive payments awarded under the Incentive Plan and any stock unit awards; (b) up to 50% of their base salary; (c) any or all amounts that are prevented from being deferred as a matched contribution under The Brink’s Company 401(k) Plan as a result of limitations imposed by Sections 401(a)(17), 401(k)(3), 402(g) and 415 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”); and (d) any and all other amounts that the Committee (as defined below), in its sole discretion, shall allow.
In order to align the interests of participants more closely to the long term interests of The Brink’s Company (the “Company”) and its shareholders, the Program also (a) provides matching contributions with respect to certain cash incentive awards and salary deferrals and (b) allocates under the Program an amount equivalent to matching contributions that are not eligible to be made under The Brink’s Company 401(k) Plan as a result of limitations imposed by Code Section 401(m)(2) to Match Eligible Employees.
The Program is an unfunded plan maintained primarily for the purpose of providing deferred compensation for a select group of management or highly compensated employees, within the meaning of Section 201(2) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended.

Section 3.02. Eligibility. Each Employee may participate in the benefits provided pursuant to this Article 3 and each Match Eligible Employee shall be eligible to receive a Matching Incentive Contribution benefit provided pursuant to this Article 3.
Section 3.03. Deferral of Cash Incentive Payments. Each Employee may make an election to defer an amount, expressed as a percentage from 10% to 90%, of such Cash Incentive Payment which may be made to him or her for such Year. Such Employee’s election hereunder for any Year shall be made prior to the later of (a) the first day of the Year with respect to which the Cash Incentive Payment is earned or (b) the expiration of the 30 day period following (and including) his or her initial date of becoming eligible to participate in the Plan; provided, however, that such election is made at least six months before the end of the performance period for the Cash Incentive Payment, or as otherwise permitted under Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-2(a), by filing a deferral election form with the Company. Such deferral election form shall include the Employee’s written election as to time and form of distribution of such deferred amounts in accordance with Article 8. A Cash Incentive Account and/or Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account (which may be the same such accounts established pursuant to Articles 4 and/or 5) shall be established for each Employee making such election, and cash and/or Units, as applicable, in respect of such deferred amounts shall be credited to such accounts as provided in Section 3.06 below.
Section 3.04. Matching Incentive Contributions. Each Match Eligible Employee who has deferred a percentage of his or her Cash Incentive Payment for such Year pursuant to Section 3.03, shall have a Matching Incentive Contribution allocated to his or her Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account for such Year. The amount of such Matching Incentive Contribution for any Year shall be equal to the portion of his or her Cash Incentive Payment that he or she has elected to defer for such Year but not in excess of 10% of his or her Cash Incentive Payment. The dollar amount of each Match Eligible Employee’s Matching Incentive Contributions deferred to his or her Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account shall be converted into Units and credited to such Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account as provided in Section 3.06 below. Stock Unit Deferrals are not eligible for Matching Incentive Contributions.
Section 3.05. Deferral of Stock Unit Awards. Each Employee may make an election to defer a portion of such Stock Unit Award which may be made to him or her for such Year, as specified by the Committee. Such Employee’s election for any Year shall be made prior to the later of (a) the first day of such Year with respect to which the Stock Unit Award is granted or (b) the expiration of the 30 day period following (and
6


including) his or her initial date of becoming eligible to participate in the Plan; provided, however, that such election is made at least six months before the end of the performance period for the Stock Unit Award or as otherwise permitted under Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-2(a), by filing a deferral election form with the Company. Such deferral election form shall include the Employee’s written election as to time and form of distribution of such deferred amounts in accordance with Article 8. The Committee may determine to allow an Employee to make an election to defer a previously granted Stock Unit Award by filing a deferral election form with the Company on or before the date that is at least 12-months prior to the Vesting Date for the applicable Stock Unit Award and subject to a minimum deferral period of five (5) years (and as otherwise permitted under Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-2(a) or Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-2(b), as applicable). Such deferral election form shall include the Employee’s written election as to time (subject to the five (5) year minimum deferral requirement) and form of distribution of such deferred amounts in accordance with Article 8. A Stock Unit Deferral Account shall be established for each Employee making such an election and Units in respect of such deferred amounts shall be credited to such accounts as provided in Section 3.06 below.
Section 3.06. Crediting of Cash and Stock Incentive Accounts. The amount of an Employee’s deferred Cash Incentive Payment for any Year shall be credited to such Employee’s Cash Incentive Account beginning on the Employee’s Entry Date and continuing as of the last business day of the month in which the non-deferred portion of the Cash Incentive Payment was made, and each Employee may, in a manner compliant with Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-1(o), elect one or more investment options selected by the Company, in its sole discretion, for the purpose of crediting or debiting additional amounts to such deferred amount (each such investment option, an “Eligible Investment Option”); provided, however, if such Employee elects to invest his or her deferred Cash Incentive Payment for any Year in Units, or fails to make a timely investment election (as prescribed by the Committee) with respect to such deferred Cash Incentive Payment, the portion of the Employee’s deferred Cash Incentive Payment so invested in Units or with respect to which a timely investment election was not made shall instead be converted to Units and credited to such Employee’s Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account beginning on the Employee’s Entry Date and continuing as of the last business day of the month in which the Cash Incentive Payment was made. The amount of a Match Eligible Employee’s Matching Incentive Contributions for any Year shall be converted to Units and credited to such Match Eligible Employee’s Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account as of the last business day of the month in which the non-deferred portion of the applicable Cash Incentive Payment was made. The amount of an Employee’s Stock Unit Deferrals for any Year shall be converted to Units and credited to such Employee’s Stock Unit Deferral Account as of the Vesting Date for the applicable Stock Units.
The number (computed to at least the second decimal place) of Units credited to a Match Eligible Employee’s Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account for any Year for Matching Incentive Contributions shall be determined by dividing the aggregate amount of the Cash Incentive Payment deferred to such Match Eligible Employee’s Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account for such Year under this Section 3.06 or the Matching Incentive Contributions for such Year, as applicable, by the per share reported closing price of Brink’s Stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange on the final trading day of the month in which the Cash Incentive Payment was made.
Section 3.07. Adjustments. The Committee shall determine such equitable adjustments in the Units credited to each Stock Incentive Account as may be
7


appropriate to reflect any stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization, merger, consolidation, reorganization, combination, or exchange of shares, split-up, split-off, spin-off, liquidation or other similar change in capitalization or any distribution to shareholders other than cash dividends.
Section 3.08. Dividends and Distributions. Whenever a cash dividend or any other distribution is paid with respect to shares of Brink’s Stock, the Stock Incentive Accounts of each Employee will be credited with an additional number of Units, equal to the number of shares of Brink’s Stock, including fractional shares (computed to at least the second decimal place), that could have been purchased had such dividend or other distribution been paid to the applicable Stock Incentive Account on the payment date for such dividend or distribution based on the number of Shares represented by Units in such Stock Incentive Account as of such date and assuming the amount of such dividend or value of such distribution had been used to acquire additional Units. Such additional Units shall be deemed to be purchased at the per share reported closing price of Brink’s Stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange on the payment date for the dividend or other distribution. The value of any distribution in property will be determined by the Committee.
Section 3.09. Minimum Distribution. Distributions shall be made in accordance with Article 8; provided, however, that the aggregate value of the Brink’s Stock distributed to an Employee (or his or her beneficiaries) attributable to deferrals of Cash Incentive Payments otherwise payable in respect to services rendered prior to January 1, 2007 (including dividends relating to such Units but not Matching Incentive Contributions) shall not be less than the aggregate amount of Cash Incentive Payments and dividends (credited to his or her Pre-2015 Stock Incentive Account pursuant to Section 3.07) in respect of which such Units were initially so credited. The value of the Brink’s Stock, so distributed shall be considered equal to the per share reported closing price of Brink’s Stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange on the final trading day immediately preceding the date of distribution.
ARTICLE 4
Deferral of Salary
Section 4.01. Definitions. Wherever used in the Program, the following term shall have the meaning indicated:
Matching Salary Contributions” Matching contributions allocated to an Employee’s Incentive Accounts pursuant to Section 4.04.
Section 4.02. Eligibility. Each Employee may participate in the benefits provided pursuant to this Article 4 and each Match Eligible Employee shall be eligible to receive a Matching Salary Contribution benefit provided for pursuant to this Article 4.
Section 4.03. Deferral of Salary. Each Employee may elect to defer an amount, expressed as a percentage, from 5% to 50% of his or her Salary for such Year; provided, however, that in the case of an Employee who first becomes eligible to participate in this portion of the Program after January 1 of such Year, only Salary earned (from 5% to 50%) after he or she files a deferral election with the Company may be deferred. Such Employee’s election hereunder for any Year shall be made prior to the later of (a) the first day of such Year or (b) the expiration of the 30 day period following (and including) his or her initial date of becoming eligible to participate in the Plan, or as otherwise required under Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-2(a), by filing
8


a deferral election form with the Company. Such deferral election form shall include the Employee’s written election as to time and form of distribution of such deferred amount in accordance with Article 8. A Cash Incentive Account and/or Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account (which may be the same such accounts established pursuant to Articles 3 and/or 5) shall be established for each Employee making such election, and cash and/or Units, as applicable, in respect of such deferred amounts shall be credited to such accounts as provided in Section 4.05 below.
Section 4.04. Matching Salary Contributions. Each Match Eligible Employee who has deferred a percentage of his or her Salary for such Year pursuant to Section 4.03 shall have Matching Salary Contributions allocated to his or her Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account for such Year. The amount of such Matching Salary Contributions for any Year shall be equal to 100% of the first 10% of his or her Salary that he or she has elected to defer for the Year pursuant to Section 4.03. The dollar amount of each Match Eligible Employee’s Matching Salary Contributions deferred to his or her Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account shall be converted into Units and credited to such Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account as provided in Section 4.05 below.
Section 4.05. Crediting of Cash and Stock Incentive Accounts. The amount of an Employee’s deferred Salary for any Year shall be credited to such Employee’s Cash Incentive Account beginning on the Employee’s Entry Date and continuing as of the last business day of the month in which such Salary was earned and payable, and each Employee may, in a manner compliant with Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-1(o), elect one or more Eligible Investment Options for the purpose of crediting or debiting additional amounts to such deferred amount; provided, however, if such Employee elects to invest his or her deferred Salary for any Year in Units, or fails to make a timely investment election (as prescribed by the Committee) with respect to such deferred Salary, the portion of the Employee’s deferred Salary so invested in Units or with respect to which a timely investment election was not made shall instead be converted to Units and credited to such Employee’s Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account beginning on the Employee’s Entry Date and continuing as of the last business day of the month in which Salary was earned and payable. The amount of a Match Eligible Employee’s Matching Salary Contributions for any Year shall be converted to Units and shall be credited to such Employee’s Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account as of the last business day of the month in which the applicable Salary would have been payable.
The number (computed to at least the second decimal place) of Units credited to an Employee’s Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account for any month shall be determined by dividing the aggregate amount of the Salary deferred to such Employee’s Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account for such month under this Section 4.05 or the Matching Salary Contributions for such month, as applicable, by the per share reported closing price of Brink’s Stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange on the final trading day of the month in which the applicable Salary would have been payable.
Section 4.06. Adjustments. The Committee shall determine such equitable adjustments in the Units credited to each Stock Incentive Account as may be appropriate to reflect any stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization, merger, consolidation, reorganization, combination, or exchange of shares, split up, split-off, spin-off, liquidation or other similar change in capitalization or any distribution to shareholders other than cash dividends.

Accounts of each Employee will be credited with an additional number of Units equal to the number of shares of Brink’s Stock, including fractional shares (computed to at least the second decimal place), that could have been purchased had such dividend or other distribution been paid to the applicable Stock Incentive Account on the payment date for such dividend or distribution based on the number of Shares represented by the Units in such Stock Incentive Account as of such date and assuming the amount of such dividend or value of such distribution had been used to acquire additional Units. Such additional Units shall be deemed to be purchased at the per share reported closing price of Brink’s Stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange on the payment date for the dividend or other distribution for Units credited. The value of any distribution in property will be determined by the Committee.
Section 4.08. Minimum Distribution.

The value of the Brink’s Stock so distributed shall be considered equal to the per share reported closing price of Brink’s Stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange on the final trading day immediately preceding the date of distribution.

Each Employee who is not permitted to defer the maximum amount of his or her Compensation that may be contributed under the Savings Plan for any Year as a result of limitations imposed by Code Sections 401(a)(17), 402(g) and/or 415 may elect to defer an amount equal to the maximum employer match available under the Savings Plan, currently, 50% of Savings Plan contributions up to 4% of Compensation. In order to be permitted to defer any portion of his or her Compensation pursuant to this Section 5.03, the Employee must elect to defer the maximum amount permitted as a matched contribution for the Year under the Savings Plan. Such Employee’s election hereunder for any Year shall be made prior to the first day of such Year or, if later, within 30 days after his or her initial date of becoming eligible to participate in the Plan (and as otherwise permitted under Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-2(a)), but only with respect to Compensation for services performed after the date of such election, by filing a deferral election form with the Company. Such deferral election form shall include the Employee’s written election as to time and form of distribution of such deferred amounts in accordance with Article 8. A Cash Incentive Account and/or Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account (which may be the same such accounts established pursuant to Articles 3 and/or 4) shall be established for each Employee making such election, and cash and/or Units, as applicable, in respect of such deferred payment shall be credited to such accounts as provided in Section 5.05 below; provided, however, that in the event an Employee is not permitted to defer the maximum amount of his or her Compensation that may be contributed under the Savings Plan for any year as a result of the limitation imposed by Code Section 401(k)(3), such excess contribution to the Savings Plan shall be distributed to the Employee, his or her Compensation paid after the date of the distribution shall be reduced by that amount and such amount shall be allocated to his or her accounts as soon as practicable following the first business day following the January 1 next following the Year for which the excess contribution was made under the Savings Plan and credited as provided in Section 5.05 below.
Section 5.04. Matching Supplemental Savings Plan Contributions. Each Match Eligible Employee who has deferred a portion of his or her Compensation for such Year pursuant to Section 5.03 shall have a Matching Supplemental Savings Plan Contribution allocated to his or her Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account equal to the amount elected to be deferred pursuant to Section 5.03 above for each month. The dollar amount of each Match Eligible Employee’s Matching Supplemental Savings Plan Contribution deferred to his or her Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account shall be converted into Units and credited to such Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account as provided in Section 5.05 below.
If a Match Eligible Employee is participating in this portion of the Program pursuant to Sections 5.02 and 5.03 and his or her matching contribution under the Savings Plan for any Year will be reduced as a result of the nondiscrimination test contained in Code Section 401(m)(2), (a) to the extent such matching contribution under the Savings Plan is forfeitable, it shall be forfeited and that amount shall be allocated to his or her Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account as a Matching Contribution or (b) to the extent such matching contribution is not forfeitable, it shall be distributed to the Match Eligible Employee, his or her Compensation paid after the date of the distribution shall be reduced by that amount and such amount shall be allocated to his or her Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account as a Matching Contribution. The dollar amount of such Matching Contribution shall be allocated to the Match Eligible Employee’s Post-2014
11


Stock Incentive Account as soon as practicable following the January 1 next following the Year for which the matching contribution was made under the Savings Plan. Units in respect of such contribution shall be credited to the Match Eligible Employee’s Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account as provided in Section 5.05 below.
Section 5.05. Crediting of Cash and Stock Incentive Accounts. The amount of an Employee’s deferred Compensation for any Year shall be credited to such Employee’s Cash Incentive Account beginning on the Employee’s Entry Date and continuing as of the last business day of the month in which such Compensation was earned, and each Employee may, in a manner compliant with Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-1(o), elect one or more Eligible Investment Options for the purpose of crediting or debiting additional amounts to such deferred amount; provided, however, if such Employee elects to invest his or her deferred Compensation for any Year in Units, or fails to make a timely investment election (as prescribed by the Committee) with respect to such deferred Compensation, the portion of the Employee’s deferred Compensation so invested in Units or with respect to which a timely investment election was not made shall instead be converted to Units and credited to such Employee’s Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account beginning on the Employee’s Entry Date and continuing as of the last business day of the month in which the Compensation was earned. The amount of a Match Eligible Employee’s Matching Supplemental Savings Plan Contribution (representing amounts that cannot be contributed to the Savings Plan in respect of employee contributions due to applicable limits on such employee contributions) for any Year shall be converted to Units and shall be credited to such Match Eligible Employee’s Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account as of the last business day of the month in which the matching contribution was made under the Savings Plan.
The number (computed to at least the second decimal place) of Units credited to an Employee’s Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account for any month shall be determined by dividing the aggregate amount of the Compensation deferred to such Employee’s Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account for such month under this Section 5.05 or such Match Eligible Employee’s Matching Supplemental Savings Plan Contributions for such month, as applicable, by the per share reported closing price of Brink’s Stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange on the final trading day of the month in which the matching contribution was made under the Savings Plan.
Section 5.06. Adjustments. The Committee shall determine such equitable adjustments in the Units credited to each Stock Incentive Account as may be appropriate to reflect any stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization, merger, consolidation, reorganization, combination, or exchange of shares, split up, split-off, spin-off, liquidation or other similar change in capitalization or any distribution to shareholders other than cash dividends.
Section 5.07. Dividends and Distributions. Whenever a cash dividend or any other distribution is paid with respect to shares of Brink’s Stock, the Stock Incentive Accounts of each Employee will be credited with an additional number of Units equal to the number of shares of Brink’s Stock, including fractional shares (computed to at least the second decimal place), that could have been purchased had such dividend or other distribution been paid to the applicable Stock Incentive Account on the payment date for such dividend or distribution based on the number of Shares represented by the Units in such Stock Incentive Account as of such date and assuming that the amount of such dividend or value of such distribution had been used to acquire additional Units of the class giving rise to the dividend or other distribution. Such additional Units shall be deemed to be
12


purchased at the per share reported closing price of Brink’s Stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange on the payment date for the dividend or other distribution for Units credited. The value of any distribution in property will be determined by the Committee.

Whenever a cash dividend or any other distribution is paid with respect to shares of Brink’s Stock, the Stock Incentive Accounts of each Employee will be credited with an additional number of Units equal to the number of shares of Brink’s Stock, including fractional shares (computed to at least the second decimal place), that could have been purchased had such dividend or other distribution been paid to the applicable Stock Incentive Account on the payment date for such dividend or distribution based on the number of Shares represented by the Units in such Stock Incentive Account as of such date and assuming the amount of such dividend or value of such distribution had been used to acquire additional Units. Such additional Units shall be deemed to be purchased at the per share reported closing price of Brink’s Stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange on the payment date for the dividend or other distribution. The value of any distribution in property will be determined by the Committee.
Section 6.05. Minimum Distribution. Distributions shall be made in accordance with Article 8; provided, however, that the aggregate value of the Brink’s Stock distributed to an Employee (and his or her beneficiaries) attributable to deferrals

Section 8.01. In Service Distributions. In connection with each deferral election made by an Employee under the Program, the Employee may (but shall not be required to) elect to receive distributions in cash and/or Brink’s Stock in respect of all or a portion of the amounts and/or Units covered by such deferral election (other than Units attributable to Matching Incentive Contributions, Matching Salary Contributions, Matching Supplemental Savings Plan Contributions and dividends related thereto) standing to the credit of such Employee’s Cash Incentive Account and Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account, as applicable, prior to such Employee’s Termination of Employment.
14


Such Employee may elect to receive (i) such cash amounts in a single-lump sum distribution on or in equal annual installments (at least two and not more than five) beginning on a nondiscretionary and objectively determinable calendar date (within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-3(i)(1)); provided, however, that if the aggregate value of the applicable portion of amounts credited to such Employee’s Cash Incentive Account at the time any such installment is due, is less than or equal to the lesser of $25,000 and the limitation calculated in accordance with Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-3(j)(4)(v)(B), then such amounts shall be distributed to such Employee in a single-lump sum distribution in a manner that shall comply with Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-3(j)(4)(v) and (ii) such Units in a single-lump sum distribution on a nondiscretionary and objectively determinable calendar date (within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-3(i)(1)). The distribution election(s) described in this Section 8.01 shall be made no later than the corresponding deferral election. After making such a distribution election, an Employee may subsequently change, at least 12 months prior to the first scheduled distribution under such Employee’s current election (such, date the “Initial Distribution”), his or her distribution election under this Section 8.01, but such Employee shall not be permitted to change his or her distribution election subsequent to the second such change. Distributions pursuant to any such subsequent election shall not commence earlier than the fifth anniversary of the Initial Distribution and any such subsequent election shall not become effective prior to the 12-month anniversary of the date such subsequent election is made and shall otherwise comply with Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-2(b). For the avoidance of doubt, any such subsequent election shall be void and without effect with respect to any payment that would otherwise occur during the 12-month period following the date that such subsequent election is made, and the Employee's election in effect at the time that the subsequent election is made shall instead be applicable with respect to any such payment; provided, however, that, for the avoidance of doubt, a subsequent election shall be applicable with respect to installment payments that are payable after the 12-month period following the date that a such subsequent election is made provided that the Employee specifies that the subsequent election is applicable to each such installment payment. If an Employee experiences a Disability or dies prior to receiving all such distributions elected pursuant to this Section 8.01, such amounts and/or Units that have not been distributed shall be treated in accordance with Section 8.02 below.
(b) The amount of cash to be included in each installment pursuant to this Section 8.01, if applicable, shall be a fraction, the numerator of which is equal to the applicable portion of such Employee’s remaining Cash Incentive Account balance subject to such distribution election (i.e., the original amounts deferred under such election together with the amounts credited or debited to such Cash Incentive Account, reduced by the amounts subject to any prior installments) and the denominator of which is equal to the number of remaining installments (including the current installment).
(c) Any fractional Units distributed pursuant to this Section 8.01 shall be converted to cash based on the per share reported closing price of Brink’s Stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange on the final trading day immediately preceding the date of distribution and shall be paid in cash.
(d) Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that Section 8.02, 8.03 or 8.05 becomes applicable (whether or not distribution has commenced) prior to the date of the first scheduled distribution of any deferred amounts and/or Units under this Section 8.01, such provision shall apply instead of this Section 8.01; provided, however, that this Section 8.01 shall continue to apply to any deferred amounts and/or Units after the commencement of distributions hereunder without regard to the potential subsequent
15


application of Section 8.03 or 8.05. Section 8.02 shall apply in all events notwithstanding this Section 8.01.
Section 8.02. Certain Distributions on Death or Disability. Each Employee shall receive a distribution in cash and/or Brink’s Stock in respect of all amounts and/or Units (other than Units attributable to Matching Incentive Contributions, Matching Salary Contributions, Matching Supplemental Savings Plan Contributions and dividends related thereto) standing to the credit of such Employee’s Cash Incentive Account and Stock Incentive Accounts, as applicable, as of the date of such Employee’s death or Disability (whether or not distribution shall have previously commenced pursuant to Section 8.01, 8.03 or 8.05), in a single-lump sum distribution as soon as practicable, but no later than 45 days, after the date of such Employee’s death or Disability, as applicable.
(b) Any fractional Units distributed pursuant to this Section 8.02 shall be converted to cash based on the per share reported closing price of Brink’s Stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange on the final trading day immediately preceding the date of distribution and shall be paid in cash.
(c) In the event of an Employee’s death or Disability after the provisions of Section 8.01, 8.03 or 8.05 have become applicable (whether or not distribution has commenced), this Section 8.02 shall apply in lieu of such Sections with respect to any amounts and/or Units that remain standing to the credit of such Employee’s Incentive Accounts as provided in Section 8.02(a).
Section 8.03. Certain Distributions on Termination of Employment. In connection with each deferral under the Program made after July 10, 2014, each Employee shall elect to receive (i) distributions in cash in respect of all amounts covered by such deferral election standing to the credit of such Employee’s Cash Incentive Account as of the date of such Employee’s Termination of Employment, in a single-lump sum distribution on the first day that is more than six months after the date of the Employee’s Termination of Employment or in equal annual installments (at least two and not more than five) commencing on the first day that is more than six months after the date of the Employee’s Termination of Employment, and with each subsequent installment being paid on each anniversary of such date that is more than six months after the date of the Employee’s Termination of Employment and (ii) distributions in Brink’s Stock in respect of all Units covered by such deferral election (other than Units attributable to Matching Incentive Contributions, Matching Salary Contributions, Post-2014 Matching Supplemental Savings Plan Contributions and dividends related thereto) standing to the credit of such Employee’s Post-2014 Stock Incentive Account as of the date of such Employee’s Termination of Employment, in a single-lump sum distribution on the first day that is more than six months after the date of the Employee’s Termination of Employment. The distribution election described in this Section 8.03 shall be made no later than the corresponding deferral election. An Employee may subsequently change, at least 12 months prior to his or her Termination of Employment, such distribution election, but such an Employee shall not be permitted to change his or her distribution election subsequent to the second such change. Distributions pursuant to any such subsequent election shall not commence earlier than the fifth anniversary of when distributions would have commenced under such Employee’s current election and any such subsequent election shall not become effective prior to the 12-month anniversary of the date the subsequent election is made and shall otherwise comply with Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-2(b). For the avoidance of doubt, any such subsequent election made during the 12-month period prior to an Employee's Termination of Employment shall be void and without effect with respect to any payment
16


that would otherwise occur during the 12-month period following the date that such subsequent election is made, and the Employee's election in effect at the time that the subsequent election is made shall instead remain applicable with respect to any such payment; provided, however, for the avoidance of doubt, a subsequent election shall be applicable with respect to installment payments that are payable after the 12-month period following the date that a such subsequent election is made provided that the Employee specifies that the subsequent election is applicable to each such installment payment. In the event that an Employee fails to clearly and unambiguously elect a form of distribution under this Section 8.03(a) with respect to all or a portion of any amounts standing to the credit of (or to be credited to) such Employee’s Incentive Accounts, such Employee will be deemed to have elected to receive a single-lump sum distribution as provided for pursuant to this Section 8.03(a) with respect thereto.
(b) In connection with each deferral election made prior to January 1, 2014 under the Program, for any Termination of Employment, each Employee shall receive distributions in Brink’s Stock in respect of all Units (other than Units attributable to Matching Incentive Contributions, Matching Salary Contributions, Matching Supplemental Savings Plan Contributions (other than Post-2014 Matching Supplemental Savings Plan Contributions) and dividends related thereto) standing to the credit of such Employee’s Pre-2015 Stock Incentive Account in a single-lump sum distribution on the first day that is more than six months after the date of the Employee’s Termination of Employment or in accordance with any applicable distribution election made by such Employee covered by such applicable deferral election prior to January 1, 2014.
(c) The amount of cash to be included in each installment pursuant to this Section 8.03, if applicable, shall be a fraction, the numerator of which is equal to the applicable portion of such Employee’s remaining applicable Cash Incentive Account balance subject to such distribution election (i.e., the original amounts deferred under such election together with the amounts credited or debited to such Cash Incentive Account, reduced by the amounts subject to any prior installments) and the denominator of which is equal to the number of remaining installments (including the current installment).
(d) Any fractional Units distributed pursuant to this Section 8.03 shall be converted to cash based on the per share reported closing price of Brink’s Stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange on the final trading day immediately preceding the date of distribution and shall be paid in cash.
(e) Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that Section 8.01, 8.02 or 8.05 becomes applicable (whether or not distribution has commenced) prior to the applicable Employee’s Termination of Employment, the provisions of Section 8.01, 8.02 or 8.05, as applicable, shall apply instead of this Section 8.03; provided, however, that this Section 8.03 shall continue to apply to any deferred amounts and/or Units after the occurrence of such Employee’s Termination of Employment without regard to the potential subsequent application of Section 8.01 or 8.05. Section 8.02 shall apply in all events notwithstanding this Section 8.03.
Section 8.04. Distributions Attributable to Matching Incentive Contributions and Matching Salary Contributions on Termination of Employment. In the event of a Match Eligible Employee’s (a) death, (b) Retirement, (c) Disability or (d) Termination of Employment for any reason within three years following a Change in Control (other than a Termination of Employment by the Company for Cause), such Match Eligible
17


Employee shall receive a distribution of Brink’s Stock in respect of each Unit standing to the credit of such Match Eligible Employee’s Stock Incentive Accounts attributable to Matching Incentive Contributions, Matching Salary Contributions, Post-2014 Matching Supplemental Savings Plan Contributions and dividends related thereto in the same manner as provided in Section 8.02 or 8.03, as applicable, for the distribution of the applicable deferred amount that gave rise to the Matching Incentive Contribution, Matching Salary Contribution, Post-2014 Matching Supplemental Savings Plan Contribution or dividend related thereto that was converted into such Unit.
In the event of a Termination of Employment for a reason not described in the preceding paragraph and that is not in connection with a Termination of Employment by the Company for Cause, such Match Eligible Employee shall be vested in the Units standing to the credit of such Match Eligible Employee in his or her Stock Incentive Accounts attributable to Matching Incentive Contributions, Matching Salary Contributions, Post-2014 Matching Supplemental Savings Plan Contributions and dividends related thereto in accordance with the following schedule:

A Match Eligible Employee shall receive credit for one “month of participation” for each calendar month subsequent to the effective date of the Match Eligible Employee’s initial participation in the Program (without regard to whether such Match Eligible Employee participates in subsequent calendar years) through the date of such Match Eligible Employee’s Termination of Employment; provided, however, if subsequent to a Match Eligible Employee’s Termination of Employment for any reason, such former Match Eligible Employee again becomes eligible to participate in the Program, any prior credits for “months of participation” shall be disregarded. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Brink’s Stock in respect of each vested Unit standing to the credit of such Match Eligible Employee attributable to Matching Incentive Contributions, Matching Salary Contributions, Matching Supplemental Savings Plan Contributions and dividends related thereto shall be distributed as provided in Section 8.02 or 8.03, as applicable, and any remaining unvested Units shall be forfeited; provided further, that any such distribution pursuant to Section 8.03 shall be pursuant to an election made by such Match Eligible Employee as provided for under Section 8.03 in respect of Units deferred under the Program. For the avoidance of doubt, a Match Eligible Employee shall always be vested in any Matching Supplemental Savings Plan Contributions that are not Post-2014 Matching Supplemental Savings Plan Contributions.

(b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that Section 8.01, 8.02 or 8.03 becomes applicable (whether or not distribution has commenced) prior to a 409A Change in Control, the provisions of Section 8.01, 8.02 or 8.03, as applicable, shall apply instead of this Section 8.05; provided, however, that this Section 8.05 shall continue to apply to any deferred amounts and/or Units after the occurrence of a 409A Change in Control without regard to the potential subsequent application of Section 8.01 or 8.03. Section 8.02 shall apply in all events notwithstanding this Section 8.05.

An Employee who experiences an Unforeseeable Emergency may petition the Company to receive a partial or full payout from his or her Cash Incentive Account and/or Stock Incentive Accounts to the extent permitted by Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-3(i)(3). Such payout, if any, shall not exceed the amount necessary to satisfy the Unforeseeable Emergency, plus amounts necessary to pay Federal, state, local or foreign income taxes or penalties reasonably anticipated as a result of such distribution, but after taking into account any additional compensation available by canceling deferral elections as permitted under the Program or any other non-qualified deferred compensation plan in which the Employee participates. An Employee shall not be eligible to receive a payout according to this Section 8.06 to the extent that such a payout would not be permitted by Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-3(i)(3) or the Unforeseeable Emergency is or may be relieved (a) through reimbursement or compensation by insurance or otherwise, (b) by liquidation of the Employee’s assets, to the extent the liquidation of such assets would not itself cause severe financial hardship or (c) by cessation of deferrals under the Program.
Section 8.07. Changes to and Cancelations of Deferral Elections. Any election to defer under the Program shall be irrevocable, in the case of (a) amounts under the Program for any Year, (i) on and after the first day of such Year or (ii) in the case of an election made by a newly eligible Employee for his or her initial Year of eligibility, after the date such an election is made and (b) Cash Performance Payments under the Program for any Performance Measurement Period, after the last date for making such an election, as specified in the second or third sentence of Section 6.03, above, as applicable (it being understood that an Employee may only change any such election prior to its becoming irrevocable in accordance with procedures established by the Company). After such election has become irrevocable, an Employee may only subsequently change such election consistent with this Article 8 and Code Section 409A but may, in compliance with Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-3(j)(4)(viii), cancel any such election.

ARTICLE 9
Designation of Beneficiary
An Employee may designate in a written election filed with the Company a beneficiary or beneficiaries (which may be an entity other than a natural person) to receive all distributions and payments under the Program after the Employee’s death. Any such designation may be revoked, and a new election may be made, at any time and from time to time, by the Employee without the consent of any beneficiary. If the Employee designates more than one beneficiary, any distributions and payments to such beneficiaries shall be made in equal percentages unless the Employee has designated otherwise, in which case the distributions and payments shall be made in the percentages designated by the Employee. If no beneficiary has been named by the Employee or no beneficiary survives the Employee, the remaining amounts and/or Shares (including fractional Shares) in the Employee’s Cash Incentive Account and/or Stock Incentive Accounts shall be distributed or paid in a single lump-sum sum to the Employee’s estate. All distributions from an Employee’s Stock Incentive Accounts shall be made in Shares except that fractional Shares shall be paid in cash.

Miscellaneous
Section 10.01. Nontransferability of Benefits. Except as provided in Article 9, amounts and/or Units credited to a Cash Incentive Account and/or Stock Incentive Account shall not be transferable by an Employee or former Employee (or his or her beneficiaries) other than by will or the laws of descent and distribution or pursuant to a domestic relations order. No Employee, no person claiming through such Employee, nor any other person shall have any right or interest under the Program, or in its continuance, in the payment of any amount or distribution of any amounts and/or Shares under the Program, unless and until all the provisions of the Program, any determination made by the Committee thereunder, and any restrictions and limitations on the payment itself have been fully complied with. Except as provided in this Section 10.01, no rights under the Program, contingent or otherwise, shall be transferable, assignable or subject to any pledge or encumbrance of any nature, nor shall the Company or any of its Subsidiaries be obligated, except as otherwise required by law, to recognize or give effect to any such transfer, assignment, pledge or encumbrance.

Section 10.03. Limitation on Rights of Employee. Nothing in the Program shall be deemed to create, on the part of any Employee, beneficiary or other person, (a) any interest of any kind in the assets of the Company or (b) any trust or fiduciary relationship in relation to the Company. The right of an Employee to receive any amounts and/or Shares shall be no greater than the right of any unsecured general creditor of the Company.
Section 10.04. No Contract of Employment. The benefits provided under the Program for an Employee shall be in addition to, and in no way preclude, other forms of compensation to or in respect of such Employee. However, the eligibility criteria in the Program shall not give such Employee any right to be retained in the employ of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries for any period. The right of the Company and of each such Subsidiary to terminate the employment of any Employee for any reason or at any time is specifically reserved.
Section 10.05. Withholding. All distributions pursuant to the Program shall be subject to withholding in respect of income and other taxes required by law to be withheld. The Company shall establish appropriate procedures to ensure payment or withholding of such taxes. Such procedures may include arrangements for payment or withholding of taxes by retaining Shares otherwise issuable in accordance with the provisions of the Program or by accepting already owned Shares, and by applying the fair market value of such Shares to the withholding taxes payable. The value of the Brink’s Stock distributed to an Employee pursuant to the Program shall, for purposes of income taxes and all other applicable taxes, be considered equal to the per share reported closing price of Brink’s Stock as reported on the New York Stock Exchange on the final trading day immediately preceding the date of distribution.
Section 10.06. Amendment and Termination. The Committee may from time to time amend any of the provisions of the Program, or may at any time terminate the Program. No amendment or termination shall adversely affect any Units (or distributions in respect thereof) which shall theretofore have been credited to any Employee’s Cash Incentive Account and/or Stock Incentive Accounts. On the termination of the Program, distributions from an Employee’s Cash Incentive Account and/or Stock Incentive Accounts shall be made in compliance with Code Section 409A and Treasury Regulations issued thereunder.
