The Company may require the Participant to immediately sell any Ordinary Shares acquired by the Participant upon vesting or settlement if necessary to comply with applicable local law or to comply with tax obligations with respect to the vesting or settlement (in which case, the Participant hereby expressly authorizes the Company to issue sales instructions in relation to such Ordinary Shares on the Participant’s behalf).

cash on the date the underlying RSUs are settled, subject to the Company’s collection of the Tax-Related Items pursuant to Section 8. If an RSU is settled before a dividend payment date, but after the dividend record date, the Participant will be entitled to be paid for the DERs that relate to the number of Ordinary Shares credited to the Participant’s account on the settlement date, except for any Ordinary Shares withheld to cover Tax-Related Items pursuant to Section 8; provided that payment for such DERs shall be made no later than the later of (i) the last day of the taxable year in which the settlement of the RSUs occurs and (ii) the fifteenth (15th) day of the third (3rd) calendar month following the settlement of the RSUs.
7.Corporate Change. In the event of a Corporate Change, (i) if the Participant’s then outstanding RSUs are continued, assumed or substituted for awards by the Company or the surviving company or corporation or its parent, a number of such RSUs based on the greater of (A) the target level achievement of the Performance Goals and (B) the actual level of achievement of the Performance Goals as of immediately prior to the Corporate Change and based on pro-rated Performance Goals to account for any shortened Performance Period (if applicable), shall convert to time-based vesting RSUs that shall vest on the last day of the Performance Period and shall be paid out in Ordinary Shares in calendar year 2023; provided that, if, on or following the date of consummation of the Corporate Change, (x) the Participant’s employment is terminated by the Company or the surviving company or corporation or its parent without Cause prior to the end of the Performance Period and such termination of employment is a "separation from service" (within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-1(h)), such RSUs shall fully vest and be paid out in Ordinary Shares in calendar year 2023 or (y) the Participant’s employment is terminated as a result of death or Disability of the Participant prior to the end of the Performance Period, such RSUs shall fully vest and be paid out in Ordinary Shares within thirty (30) days following such termination,  or (ii) if the Participant’s then outstanding RSUs are not continued, assumed or substituted for awards by the Company or the surviving company or corporation or its parent, such outstanding RSUs shall fully vest as of immediately prior to the Corporate Change based on the greater of (A) the target level of achievement of the Performance Goals and (B) the actual level of achievement of the Performance Goals as of immediately prior to the Corporate Change and based on pro-rated Performance Goals to account for any shortened Performance Period (if applicable), and shall be paid out in Ordinary Shares at the consummation of the Corporate Change.
8.Withholding of Tax. Regardless of any action the Company or its Affiliates or an Employer takes with respect to any or all income tax (including U.S. federal, state and local taxes or non-U.S. taxes), social insurance, payroll tax, payment on account or other tax-related withholding (the “Tax-Related Items”), the Participant acknowledges that the ultimate liability for all Tax-Related Items legally due by the Participant is and remains the Participant’s responsibility and that the Company and its Affiliates or the Employer (i) make no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related Items in connection with any aspect of the RSUs, including the grant of the RSUs, the vesting of the RSUs, the settlement of RSUs, the subsequent sale of any Ordinary Shares acquired pursuant to the RSUs and the receipt of any dividends or DERs and (ii) do not commit to structure the terms of the grant or any aspect of the RSUs to reduce or eliminate the Participant’s liability for Tax-Related Items.
Prior to the delivery of Ordinary Shares on or following the vesting of the RSUs, if the Participant’s country of residence (or country of employment, if different) requires withholding of Tax-Related Items, then, at the discretion of the Committee, (i) the Company shall withhold a sufficient number of whole Ordinary Shares otherwise issuable upon the vesting of the RSUs that have an aggregate fair market value sufficient to pay the Tax-Related Items required to be withheld with respect to the Ordinary Shares at the applicable minimum statutory rate or other withholding rate, including the maximum rate, as determined by the Committee in accordance with the Plan and applicable law or (ii)

the Participant will pay to the Company or the Employer any amount of Tax-Related Items that the Company or the Employer may be required to withhold as a result of the Participant’s participation in the Plan or the Participant’s acquisition of Ordinary Shares at the applicable minimum statutory rate or other withholding rate, including the maximum rate, as determined by the Committee in accordance with the Plan.
If the obligation for the Participant’s Tax-Related Items is satisfied by withholding Ordinary Shares as described herein, the Participant shall be deemed to have been issued the full number of shares of Ordinary Shares issuable upon vesting, notwithstanding that a number of the shares of Ordinary Shares is held back solely for the purpose of paying the Tax-Related Items due as a result of the vesting or any other aspect of the RSUs.
The Company may refuse to deliver any Ordinary Shares due upon settlement of the RSUs if the Participant fails to comply with his or her obligations in connection with the Tax-Related Items as described herein and such Ordinary Shares will be forfeited. If the Participant is subject to taxation in more than one jurisdiction, the Participant acknowledges that the Company or the Employer may be required to withhold or account for Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction. The Participant hereby consents to any action reasonably taken by the Company and the Employer to meet their obligation for Tax-Related Items.

(d)the Participant shall not be entitled and shall be deemed to have waived any possible entitlement, to any compensation for any loss he may suffer as a result of the exercise by the Company or the Committee of, or its failure to exercise, any of the discretions given to it by the Plan;
(e)the grant of RSUs and the Participant’s participation in the Plan shall not create a right to employment or be interpreted as forming an employment or service contract with the Company, the Employer or any Affiliate and shall not interfere with the ability of the Employer to terminate the Participant’s employment or service relationship;
(f)the Participant is voluntarily participating in the Plan;
(g)the RSUs and the Ordinary Shares subject to the RSUs are not intended to replace any pension rights or compensation;

(h)the RSUs, the Ordinary Shares subject to the RSUs and the value of the same are an extraordinary item of compensation outside the scope of the Participant’s employment (and employment contract, if any) and are not part of normal or expected compensation for any purpose, including calculating any severance, resignation, termination, redundancy, dismissal, end-of-service payments, bonuses, long-service awards, pension or retirement or welfare benefits or similar payments;
(i)the future value of the Ordinary Shares underlying the RSUs is unknown, indeterminable and cannot be predicted with certainty;
(j)no claim or entitlement to compensation or damages shall arise from forfeiture of the RSUs resulting from the Participant ceasing to have rights under or to be entitled to RSUs, whether or not as a result of the Participant’s termination of employment (for any reason whatsoever, whether or not later found to be invalid or in breach of employment laws in the jurisdiction where the Participant is employed or the terms of the Participant’s employment agreement, if any), and in consideration of the grant of the RSUs to which the Participant is otherwise not entitled, the Participant irrevocably agrees to (x) never to institute a claim against the Company, the Employer or any Affiliate and (y) waive his or her ability, if any, to bring any such claim, and releases the Company, the Employer and all Affiliates from any such claim; if, notwithstanding the foregoing, any such claim is allowed by a court of competent jurisdiction; by participating in the Plan, the Participant shall be deemed irrevocably to have agreed not to pursue such claim and agrees to execute any and all documents necessary to request dismissal or withdrawal of such claim; and
(k)if the Participant resides or is employed outside the United States, the Participant acknowledges and agrees that the Company and any Affiliate shall not be liable for any exchange rate fluctuation between the Participant’s local currency and the U.S. Dollar that may affect the value of the RSUs or of any amounts due pursuant to the settlement of the RSUs or the subsequent sale of any Ordinary Shares acquired upon settlement.

The Participant acknowledges that he or she may be subject to insider trading restrictions and/or market abuse laws in applicable jurisdictions, including the Participant’s country of residence, which may affect the Participant’s ability to acquire or sell Ordinary Shares or rights to Ordinary Shares (e.g., the RSUs) under the Plan during such times as the Participant is considered to have “inside information” regarding the Company (as defined by the laws in the applicable jurisdictions, including the Participant’s country of residence).

In all circumstances, any applicable Addendum shall constitute part of this Agreement.
14.No Advice Regarding Grant. The Company and the Employer are not providing any tax, legal or financial advice, nor is the Company or the Employer making any recommendations regarding the RSUs, the Participant’s participation in the Plan or the Participant’s acquisition or sale of the underlying Ordinary Shares.

17.Notices. Any notice given to the Participant shall be addressed to the Participant at the address or electronic address listed in the Participant’s electronic stock plan account held with the Administrator.

ADDENDUM
This Addendum includes additional terms and conditions that govern the RSUs granted to the Participant under the Plan if the Participant resides in, or is employed in, one of the countries addressed herein. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Plan and the Restricted Stock Unit Agreement (the “Agreement”) to which this Addendum is attached.
This Addendum also includes information regarding exchange control laws and certain other issues the Participant should be aware of with respect to the Participant’s participation in the Plan. The information is based on the securities, exchange control and other laws in effect in the respective countries as of March 2017. The laws are often complex and change frequently. As a result, the Company strongly recommends that the Participant not rely on the information noted herein as the only source of information relating to the consequences of the Participant’s participation in the Plan because the information may be out of date by the time the Participant vests in the RSUs or sells the Ordinary Shares issued upon settlement of the RSUs.
In addition, the information contained in this Addendum is general in nature and may not apply to the Participant’s particular situation, and the Company is not in a position to assure the Participant of any particular result. Accordingly, the Participant is advised to seek appropriate professional advice as to how the applicable laws in his or her country may apply to his or her situation.
If the Participant (i) is a citizen or resident of a country other than the one in which he or she is currently working or residing, (ii) transfers to another country after the RSU grant date, (iii) changes employment status to a consultant position, or (iv) is considered a resident of another country for local law purposes, the Company shall, in its discretion, determine the extent to which the special terms and conditions contained herein shall apply to the Participant.
AUSTRALIA

Form of Settlement. Notwithstanding any discretion contained in the Plan, the RSUs only will be settled in Ordinary Shares. The RSUs do not provide any right for the Participant to receive a cash payment.
Involuntary Termination Terms. In the event of the Participant’s involuntary termination (regardless of the reason for such termination and whether or not later found to be invalid or in breach of employment laws in the jurisdiction where the Participant is providing service or the terms of the Participant’s employment agreement, if any), vesting will terminate as of the date that is the earlier of (i) the date the Participant receives a notice of termination from the Employer, or (ii) the date the Participant is no longer actively rendering services, regardless of any notice period or period of pay in lieu of such notice required under local law (including, but not limited to, statutory law, regulatory law, or common law). The Board or the chief executive officer of the Company or an Affiliate, as applicable, shall have the exclusive discretion to determine when the Participant is no longer actively employed or rendering services for purposes of the RSUs.
Terms and Conditions Applicable if Participant Resides in Quebec
Consent to Receive Information in English. The parties acknowledge that it is their express wish that the Agreement, as well as all documents, notices and legal proceedings entered into, given or instituted pursuant hereto or relating directly or indirectly hereto, be drawn up in English.
Consentement Pour Recevoir Des Informations en Anglais. Les parties reconnaissent avoir exigé la rédaction en anglais de la convention, ainsi que de tous documents, avis et procédures judiciaires, exécutés, donnés ou intentés en vertu de, ou liés directement ou indirectement à, la présente convention.
Data Protection. The following provision supplements Section 24 of the Agreement:
The Participant hereby authorizes the Company and the Company’s representatives to discuss with and obtain all relevant information from all personnel, professional or not, involved in the administration and operation of the Plan. The Participant further authorizes the Company, its Affiliates and any Administrator that may be selected by the Company to assist with the Plan to disclose and discuss the Plan with their respective advisors. The Participant further authorizes the Company and its Affiliates to record such information and to keep such information in the Participant’s employee file.
Notifications
Securities Law Information. Canadian residents may not be permitted to sell or otherwise dispose of any Ordinary Shares acquired upon vesting of the RSUs within Canada. Canadian residents may only be permitted to sell or dispose of any such Ordinary Shares if such sale or disposal takes place outside of Canada on the facilities on which the Ordinary Shares are traded (i.e., on the NASDAQ).
Foreign Asset and Account Reporting Notification. If the Participant is a Canadian resident, the Participant may be required to report his or her foreign property on form T1135 (Foreign Income Verification Statement) if the total cost of the foreign property exceeds C$100,000 at any time during the year. Foreign property includes Ordinary Shares acquired under the Plan and may include the RSUs. The RSUs must be reported - generally at a nil cost - if the C$100,000 cost threshold is exceeded because of other foreign property the Participant holds. If Ordinary Shares are acquired, their cost generally is the adjusted cost base of the Ordinary Shares (“ACB”). The ACB ordinarily would equal the fair market value of the Ordinary Shares at the time of acquisition, but if the Participant owns other Ordinary Shares, the ACB may have to be averaged with the ACB of the other Ordinary Shares. The form T1135 generally must be filed by April 30 of the following year. The Participant should consult with his or her personal tax advisor to determine the Participant’s personal reporting obligations.

Plan Document Acknowledgement. By accepting the grant of RSUs, the Participant acknowledges that he or she has received a copy of the Plan and the Agreement, including this Addendum, which the Participant has reviewed. The Participant further acknowledges that he or she accepts all the provisions of the Plan and the Agreement, including this Addendum. The Participant also acknowledges that he or she has read and specifically and expressly approves the terms and conditions set forth in Section 9 of the Agreement, which clearly provides as follows:
(1) The Participant’s participation in the Plan does not constitute an acquired right;
(2) The Plan and the Participant’s participation in it are offered by the Company on a wholly discretionary basis;
(3) The Participant’s participation in the Plan is voluntary; and
(4) None of the Company, the Employer or any Affiliate is responsible for any decrease in the value of any Ordinary Shares acquired upon the RSUs vesting.

By accepting the grant of RSUs, the Participant expressly recognizes that the Company, with its principal operating offices at 2050 W Sam Houston Pkwy S, Suite 1300, Houston, Texas, 77042, United States of America, is solely responsible for the administration of the Plan and that the Participant’s participation in the Plan and acquisition of Ordinary Shares under the Plan does not constitute an employment relationship between the Participant and the Company since the Participant is participating in the Plan on a wholly commercial basis and the Participant’s sole employer is a Mexican legal entity that employs the Participant and to which the Participant is subordinated (i.e., the Employer). Based on the foregoing, the Participant expressly recognizes that the Plan and the benefits that he or she may derive from participating in the Plan do not establish any rights between the Participant and the Employer and do not form part of the employment conditions and/or benefits provided by the Employer and any modification of the Plan or

its termination shall not constitute a change or impairment of the terms and conditions of the Participant’s employment.
The Participant further acknowledges that their participation in the Plan and the offer of the RSU is a private offer.
The Participant further understands that his or her participation in the Plan is as a result of a unilateral and discretionary decision of the Company; therefore, the Company reserves the absolute right to amend and/or discontinue the Participant’s participation in the Plan at any time without any liability to the Participant.
Finally, the Participant hereby declares that the Participant does not reserve any action or right to bring any claim against the Company for any compensation or damages regarding any provision of the Plan or the benefits derived under the Plan, and the Participant therefore grants a full and broad release to the Company, and its Affiliates, branches, representation offices, shareholders, trustees, directors, officers, employees, agents, or legal representatives with respect to any such claim that may arise.
NEW ZEALAND
Terms and Conditions (General)
Agreements and consents: The Participant agrees to enter into any document and/or make any representations as may be required from time to time by the Company, the Employer or any Affiliates, such that the Company or its Affiliates is able to fulfill its obligations and can rely on any necessary exemptions under securities laws and/or can make any necessary filings under local securities laws.
Notifications
Securities Law Information. Warning: This is an offer of rights to receive Ordinary Shares upon vesting of the RSUs subject to the terms of the Plan and the Agreement. RSUs give you a stake in the ownership of the Company. You may receive a return if dividends are paid on the Ordinary Shares. If the Company runs into financial difficulties and is wound up, you will be paid only after all creditors and holders of preferred shares have been paid. You may lose some or all of your investment.
New Zealand law normally requires people who offer financial products to give information to investors before they invest. This information is designed to help investors to make an informed decision. The usual rules do not apply to this offer because it is made under an employee share purchase scheme. As a result, you may not be given all the information usually required. You will also have fewer other legal protections for this investment. You should ask questions, read all documents carefully, and seek independent financial advice before committing to participate in the Plan.
In addition, you are hereby notified that the documents listed below are available for review on the Company intranet site at the web addresses listed below:
1.The Company's most recent Annual Report (Form 10-K):

SPAIN
Terms and Conditions (General)
Definition of "Disability”: The definition of "Disability", instead of that provided in this Agreement, shall be determined by the Company or the Participant's Employer and in accordance with the Employer's relevant employment policies, as may be in place from time to time.
Definition of "Qualified Retirement”: The definition of "Qualified Retirement", instead of that provided in this Agreement, shall be determined by the Company or the Participant's Employer and in accordance with the Employer's relevant employment policies, as may be in place from time to time.
Agreements and consents: The Participant agrees to enter into any document and/or make any representations as may be required from time to time by the Company, the Employer or any Affiliates, such that the Company or its Affiliates is able to fulfill its obligations and can rely on any necessary exemptions under securities laws and/or can make any necessary filings under local securities laws.
Nature of Grant. This provision supplements Section 9 of the Agreement:
In accepting the RSUs, the Participant consents to participating in the Plan and acknowledges having received and read a copy of the Plan.
The Participant understands that the Company has unilaterally, gratuitously and discretionally decided to grant the RSUs under the Plan to individuals who may be employees of the Employer, the Company or any Affiliate throughout the world. The decision is a limited decision that is entered into upon the express assumption and condition that any grant will not bind the Company or any Affiliate except as set forth in the Plan or Agreement. Consequently, the Participant understands that the RSUs are granted on the assumption and condition that such RSUs and any Ordinary Shares acquired upon vesting of the RSUs shall not become a part of any employment contract (either with the Employer or the Company or any Affiliate) and shall not be considered a mandatory benefit, salary for any purpose (including severance compensation) or any other right whatsoever. In addition, the Participant understands that the RSUs would not be granted but for the assumptions and conditions referred to above; thus, the Participant acknowledges and freely accepts that should any or all of the assumptions be mistaken or should any of the conditions not be met for any reason, then the grant of the RSUs shall be null and void.

Further, the vesting of the RSUs is expressly conditioned on the Participant’s continuous service, such that if the Participant’s service or employment terminates for any reason whatsoever, the RSUs will cease to vest immediately effective on the date of termination of the Participant’s service or employment. This will be the case, for example, even if the Participant: (a) is considered to be unfairly dismissed without good cause; (b) is dismissed for disciplinary or objective reasons or due to a collective dismissal; (c) terminates service or employment due to a change of work location, duties or any other employment or contractual condition; (d) terminates service or employment due to the Company’s or any Affiliate’s unilateral breach of contract; or (e) is terminated from service or employment for any other reason whatsoever. Consequently, upon the Participant’s termination of service or employment for any of the above reasons, the Participant will automatically lose any rights to the RSUs that were unvested on the date of termination.
Notifications
Securities Law Notification. The RSUs described in the Plan and the Agreement, including this Addendum, do not qualify under Spanish regulations as securities. No “offer of securities to the public,” as defined under Spanish law, has taken place or will take place in the Spanish territory. The Plan and the Agreement, including this Addendum, have not been nor will they be registered with the Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores (Spanish Securities Exchange Commission), and they do not constitute a public offering prospectus.
Exchange Control Notification. The acquisition, ownership and sale of Ordinary Shares under the Plan must be declared for statistical purposes to the Spanish Dirección General de Comercio e Inversiones (the “DGCI”), the Bureau for Commerce and Investments, which is a department of the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. Generally, the declaration must be made each January for Ordinary Shares owned as of December 31 of the prior year; however, if the amount of Ordinary Shares acquired or sold exceeds a specific threshold, the declaration must be filed within one month of the acquisition or sale, as applicable.
Foreign Asset / Account Reporting. Spanish residents are required to declare electronically to the Bank of Spain any securities accounts (including brokerage accounts held abroad), as well as the Ordinary Shares held in such accounts if the value of the transactions during the prior tax year or the balances in such accounts as of December 31 of the prior tax year exceeds €1,000,000.
In addition, the Participant may be subject to certain tax reporting requirements with respect to assets or rights that the Participant holds outside of Spain, including bank accounts, securities and real estate if the aggregate value for a particular category of assets exceeds €50,000 as of December 31 each year. Ordinary Shares acquired under the Plan or other equity programs offered by the Company constitute securities for purposes of this requirement, but unvested awards (e.g., RSUs, etc.) are not considered assets or rights for purposes of this reporting requirement. If applicable, the Participant must report the assets on Form 720 by no later than March 31 following the end of the relevant year. After the rights and/or assets are initially reported, the reporting obligation will apply only if the value of previously-reported rights or assets increases by more than €20,000 as of each subsequent December 31 or if the Participant sells or otherwise disposes of previously-reported rights or assets. The Participant should consult with his or her personal advisor to determine the Participant’s obligations in this respect.
Data Protection. The Company and its Affiliates confirm that they shall comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 and the relevant implementing legislation when processing the Participant’s personal data for the purpose of administering the Plan.  Further information about the processing of Participants’ personal data is set out in the privacy notice which is available at: http://www.cardtronics.es/en/privacy.html.

Tax Acknowledgment. Without limitation to Section 8 of the Agreement, the Participant hereby agrees that he is or she is liable for all Tax-Related Items and hereby covenants to pay all such Tax-Related Items, as and when requested by the Company or (if different) the Employer or by HMRC (or any other tax authority or any other relevant authority).  The Participant also hereby agrees to indemnify and keep indemnified the Company and (if different) the Employer against any Tax-Related Items that they are required to pay or withhold on the Participant’s behalf or have paid or will pay to HMRC (or any other tax authority or any other relevant authority).

UNITED STATES
Notifications
Code Section 409A. For U.S. taxpayers, it is the intent that the grant of RSUs as set forth in the Agreement shall qualify for exemption from or comply with the requirements of Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended and restated (the “Code”), and any ambiguities herein will be interpreted to so qualify or comply. The Company reserves the right, to the extent the Company deems necessary or advisable in its sole discretion, to unilaterally amend or modify the Agreement as may be necessary to ensure that all payments provided for under the Agreement are made in a manner that qualifies for exemption from or complies with Section 409A of the Code; provided, however, that the Company makes no representation that the grant, vesting, or settlement of the RSUs will be exempt from or comply with Section 409A of the Code and makes no undertaking to preclude Section 409A of the Code from applying to the grant, vesting or settlement of the RSUs granted pursuant to the Agreement. The Company will have no liability to the Participant or any other party if the RSUs, the delivery of Ordinary Shares upon settlement of the RSUs or other payment hereunder that is intended to be exempt from, or compliant with, Section 409A of the Code, is not so exempt or compliant, or for any action taken by the Company with respect thereto.
