This Award is granted in exchange for the unvested Class B Units held by the Holder in Vector Cambium Holdings (Cayman), L.P., a Cayman Islands exempted limited partnership, under the Second Amended and Restated Limited Partnership Agreement, dated as of June 23, 2012 (as amended as of June 19, 2013, October 14, 2014 and April 2, 2015). Capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meanings specified in the Plan.
1. Award Subject to Acceptance of Agreement. The Award shall be null and void unless the Holder (a) accepts this Agreement by executing the Award Notice in the space provided therefor and returning an original execution copy of the Award Notice to the Company (or electronically accepts this Agreement within the Holders share plan account with the Companys share plan administrator according to the procedures then in effect), (b) if required by the Company, executes and returns one or more irrevocable stock powers to facilitate the transfer to the Company (or its assignee or nominee) of the Shares if the Shares are forfeited pursuant to Section 4 or if required under applicable laws or regulations and (c) agrees to abide by all administrative procedures established by the Company or its share plan administrator, including any procedures requiring the Holder to notify the Company of any proposed sale of any Shares acquired upon the vesting of this Award. As soon as practicable after the Holder has executed such documents and returned them to the Company, the Company shall cause to be issued in the Holders name the total number of Shares subject to the Award. In addition, in the event that the Companys initial public offering of the Shares (the IPO) does not close on or before [___________ __, 2019], this Award shall be forfeited as of such date and the Holder will at such time continue to hold the unvested Class B Units held by the Holder in Vector Cambium Holdings (Cayman), L.P. for which the Shares received hereunder were exchanged.
2. Rights as a Shareholder. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, the Holder shall have all rights as a holder of the Shares subject to the Award, including, without limitation, the right to receive dividends and other distributions thereon, and the right to participate in any capital adjustment applicable to all holders of Shares unless and until such Shares are forfeited pursuant to Section 4 hereof; provided, however, that (i) the Holder shall not be entitled to vote the Shares subject to the Award until such Shares become vested pursuant to Section 4.1, (ii) each distribution with respect to Shares that is a share dividend or share split, shall be delivered to the Company (and the Holder shall, if requested by the Company, execute
and return one or more irrevocable stock powers related thereto) and shall be subject to the same restrictions as the Shares with respect to which such dividend or other distribution was made, and (iii) any other distribution with respect to Shares (including, without limitation, a regular cash dividend) shall be held by the Company and a Reserve Amount shall be created on the books and records of the Company with respect to such Shares subject to the Award (or the Reserve Amount with respect to such Shares shall be increased, if a Reserve Amount already exists with respect to such Shares) in an amount equal to the amount so retained by the Company in respect of such Shares. If a Share subject to the Award subsequently becomes no longer restricted, the Reserve Amount attributable for such Share shall be distributed, within 60 days of vesting, without interest, to the holder of such Share, and if the Shares are forfeited, the Reserve Amount attributable to such unvested Shares shall be cancelled.
3. Custody and Delivery of Shares. The Shares subject to the Award shall be held by the Company or by a custodian in book entry form, with restrictions on the Shares duly noted, until such Award shall have vested pursuant to Section 4 hereof.

After the Award shall have vested pursuant to Section 4 hereof, the Company shall, subject to Section 6.1 hereof, transfer the vested Shares on its books or deliver the certificate or certificates for the vested Shares, as applicable, to a brokerage account in the name of the Holder as designated by the Holder, which transfer to the brokerage account shall occur (i) on the second business day after the Company receives a request for such transfer from the Holder, or (ii) in the absence of such request from the Holder, automatically on the last day of each calendar month after the Grant Date.

The period of time prior to the vesting shall be referred to herein as the Restriction Period.
4.2. Termination by the Company or by the Holder. Except as set forth in any employment or other agreement between the Company or any of its Subsidiaries and the Holder, if the Holders employment with the Company terminates prior to the end of the Restriction Period (a) by the Company for any reason or (b) by the Holder by reason of the Holders resignation from employment for any reason, then the Award, to the extent not vested immediately prior to such termination of employment, shall be immediately forfeited by the Holder and cancelled by the Company.

Any attempt to so sell, transfer, assign, pledge, hypothecate, encumber or otherwise dispose of such shares shall be null and void.
5.2. Investment Representation. The Holder hereby represents and covenants that (a) any Share acquired upon the vesting of the Award will be acquired for investment and not with a view to the distribution thereof within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act), unless such acquisition has been registered under the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws; (b) any subsequent sale of any such Shares shall be made either pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws, or pursuant to an exemption from registration under the Securities Act and such state securities laws; and (c) if requested by the Company, the Holder shall submit a written statement, in form satisfactory to the Company, to the effect that such representation (i) is true and correct as of the date of vesting of any Shares hereunder or (ii) is true and correct as of the date of any sale of any such Share, as applicable. As a further condition precedent to the delivery to the Holder of any Shares subject to the Award, the Holder shall comply with all regulations and requirements of any regulatory authority having control of or supervision over the issuance or delivery of the shares and, in connection therewith, shall execute any documents which the Board shall in its sole discretion deem necessary or advisable.

5.5. Refusal to Transfer. The Company shall not be required (a) to transfer on its books any Shares that have been sold or otherwise transferred in violation of any of the provisions of this Agreement or (b) to treat as owner of such Shares or to accord the right to vote or pay dividends to any purchaser or other transferee to whom such Shares shall have been so transferred.
6. Additional Terms and Conditions of Award.
6.1. Withholding Taxes. (a) As a condition precedent to the delivery of the Shares at such time as required by Section 6.8, the Holder shall, upon request by the Company, pay to the Company such amount as the Company may be required, under all applicable federal, state, local or other laws or regulations, to withhold and pay over as income or other withholding taxes (the Required Tax Payments) with respect to the Award. If the Holder shall fail to advance the Required Tax Payments after request by the Company, the Company may, in its discretion, deduct any Required Tax Payments from any amount then or thereafter payable by the Company to the Holder.
(b) The Holder may elect to satisfy his or her obligation to advance the Required Tax Payments by any of the following means: (i) a cash payment to the Company; (ii) delivery to the Company (either actual delivery or by attestation procedures established by the Company) of previously owned whole Shares having an aggregate Fair Market Value, determined as of the date on which such withholding obligation arises (the Tax Date), equal to the Required Tax Payments; (iii) authorizing the Company to withhold whole Shares which would otherwise be delivered to the Holder having an aggregate Fair Market Value, determined as of the Tax Date, equal to the Required Tax Payments; or (iv) any combination of (i), (ii) and (iii). Shares to be delivered or withheld may not have a Fair Market Value in excess of the minimum amount of the Required Tax Payments (or such higher amount as elected by the Holder and which does not raise adverse accounting consequences). Any fraction of a Share which would be required to satisfy any such obligation shall be disregarded and the remaining amount due shall be paid in cash by the Holder. No Share or certificate representing a Share shall be delivered until the Required Tax Payments have been satisfied in full.
6.2. Adjustment.

In the event of any other change in corporate capitalization, including a merger, consolidation, reorganization, or partial or complete liquidation of the Company, such equitable adjustments described in the foregoing sentence may be made as determined to be appropriate and equitable by the Committee to prevent dilution or enlargement of rights of the Holder.

The Company agrees to use reasonable efforts to effect or obtain any such listing, registration, qualification, consent, approval or other action.
6.4. Delivery of Shares. Subject to Section 6.1, upon the vesting of the Award, the Company shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Holder the vested Shares in accordance with Section 3. The Company shall pay all original issue or transfer taxes and all fees and expenses incident to such delivery, except as otherwise provided in Section 6.1.
6.5. Award Confers No Rights to Continued Employment. In no event shall the granting of the Award or its acceptance by the Holder, or any provision of the Agreement or the Plan, give or be deemed to give the Holder any right to continued employment by the Company, any Subsidiary or any affiliate of the Company or affect in any manner the right of the Company, any Subsidiary or any affiliate of the Company to terminate the employment of any person at any time.
