WHEREAS, CapStar and Executive are party to a Change in Control Continuity Agreement dated as of April 21, 2022 (the “Agreement”); and

1. Certain Definitions. Terms that are capitalized but not defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in the Agreement.

2. Effectiveness. This Amendment shall be effective upon the Effective Time (as defined in the Merger Agreement). If the Effective Time does not occur and the Merger Agreement is terminated, this Amendment shall be null and void ab initio.

3. Pay to Integrate Award. Subject to Executive’s continued service to CapStar through the Effective Time, CapStar shall pay to Executive a one-time lump sum cash award in an amount equal to $1,000,000, which shall be paid upon or as soon as reasonably practical following the Effective Time.
