Pursuant to the provisions of the Company’s 2019 Equity Incentive Plan (“Plan”), the terms of the Grant Notice to which this Restricted Stock Unit Agreement is attached (“Grant Notice”) and this Restricted Stock Unit Agreement (the “Agreement”), CBRE Group, Inc. (the “Company”) grants you that number of Restricted Stock Units (the “Units”) as set forth in the Grant Notice as of the date specified in the Grant Notice (“Grant Date”). Defined terms not explicitly defined in this Agreement or in the Grant Notice but defined in the Plan shall have the same definitions as in the Plan.
The details of your Award are as follows:
1.The Award. The Company hereby awards to you the aggregate number of Units specified in your Grant Notice. Each Unit is the right to receive one (1) share of the Company’s Class A Common Stock (the “Shares”) on the Vesting Date (as defined below). The Units and the Shares are awarded to you in consideration for your continued service to the Company or its Subsidiaries and Affiliates (the “Company Group”).
2.Documentation. As a condition to the award of the Units, you agree to execute the Grant Notice and to deliver the same to the Company (including through electronic means), along with such additional documents as the Committee may require, within the time period prescribed by the Company or else this Award shall be forfeited without consideration. The Company may, in its sole discretion, decide to deliver any documents related to participation in the Plan and the Award by electronic means or request your consent to participate in the Plan by electronic means. By accepting the Award, you consent to receive such documents by electronic delivery and agree to participate in the Plan through any on-line or electronic system established and maintained by the Company or another third party designated by the Company.
3.Consideration For The Award. No cash payment is required for the Units or the Shares, although you may be required to tender payment in cash or other acceptable form of consideration for the amount of any withholding taxes due as a result of delivery of the Shares.
4.Vesting. Except as otherwise specified in this Agreement and the Plan, the Units will vest as provided in the Grant Notice (the “Vesting Date”). Any Units which have not vested as of the date of your termination of Continuous Service shall thereupon be forfeited immediately and without any further action by the Company, except as otherwise directed by the Committee.
5.Number of Shares and Purchase Price. The number of Shares subject to your Award may be adjusted from time to time pursuant to the provisions of Section 12 of the Plan.
6.Issuance and Certificates. The Company will deliver to you a number of Shares equal to the number of vested Units subject to your Award, including any additional Units received pursuant to Section 5 above that relate to such vested Units, as soon as reasonably practicable after the applicable Vesting Date, but in no event later than December 31 of the calendar year in which the applicable Vesting Date occurs. However, if a scheduled delivery date falls on a date that is not a business day, such delivery date shall instead fall on the next following business day. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that (i) you are subject to the Company’s policy permitting officers and directors to sell Shares only during certain “window periods,” as in effect from time to time (the “Policy”), or you are otherwise prohibited from selling Shares in the open market, and any Shares subject to your Award are scheduled to
be delivered on a day (the “Original Distribution Date”) that does not occur during an open “window period” applicable to you or a day on which you are permitted to sell Shares pursuant to a written plan that meets the requirements of Rule 10b5-1 under the Exchange Act, as determined by the Company in accordance with the Policy, or does not occur on a date when you are otherwise permitted to sell Shares in the open market, and (ii) the Company elects not to satisfy its tax withholding obligations by withholding Shares from your distribution, then such Shares shall not be delivered on such Original Distribution Date and shall instead be delivered on the first business day of the next occurring open “window period” applicable to you pursuant to the Policy (regardless of whether you are still providing Continuous Service at such time) or the next business day when you are not prohibited from selling Shares in the open market, but in no event later than December 31 of the calendar year in which the applicable Vesting Date occurs.
There are no certificates evidencing the Units. Certificates evidencing the Shares to be delivered pursuant to this Agreement shall be issued by the Company and shall be registered in your name as soon as reasonably practicable after the date on which the Shares are delivered pursuant to this Agreement. However, the Company shall not be liable to the Participant for damages relating to any delays in issuing the certificates to him/her, any loss of the certificates, or any mistakes or errors in the issuance of the certificates or in the certificates themselves.
7.Transfer Restrictions. The Units are non-transferable. Shares that are received under your Award are subject to the transfer restrictions set forth in the Plan and any transfer restrictions that may be described in the Company’s bylaws or charter or insider trading policies in effect at the time of the contemplated transfer.
8.No Rights as a Stockholder; Dividend Equivalents. A Unit (i) does not represent an equity interest in the Company, and (ii) carries no voting rights. You will not have an equity interest in the Company or any shareholder rights, unless and until the Shares are delivered to you in accordance with this Agreement. Units, whether or not vested, shall be credited with dividend equivalents as and when dividends are paid on the Company’s actual Shares, with such dividend equivalents deemed to be invested in additional Units subject to this Agreement as of the corresponding dividend payment date (which additional Units shall vest upon the vesting of the underlying Units to which they are attributable). No dividend equivalents shall be credited with respect to any fractional Unit.
9.Securities Laws. Upon the delivery of the Shares, you will make or enter into such written representations, warranties and agreements as the Committee may reasonably request in order to comply with applicable securities laws or with this Agreement. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Plan or this Agreement to the contrary, unless there is an available exemption from such registration, qualification or other legal requirements, Units may not be converted into Shares prior to the completion of any registration or qualification of the Units or the Shares that is required to comply with applicable state and federal securities or any ruling or regulation of any governmental body or national securities exchange or compliance with any other applicable federal, state or foreign law that the Committee shall in its sole discretion determine in good faith to be necessary or advisable.
10.Legends on Certificates. The certificates representing the Shares delivered to you as contemplated by this Agreement shall be subject to such stop transfer orders and other restrictions as the Committee may deem advisable under the Plan or the rules, regulations, and other requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission, any stock exchange upon which such Shares are listed, and any applicable Federal or state laws, and the Committee may cause a legend or legends to be put on any such certificates to make appropriate reference to such restrictions.
11.Award not A Service Contract. Your Award is not an employment or service contract, and nothing in your Award shall be deemed to create in any way whatsoever any obligation or right to continued employment or service with or to the Company Group. In addition, nothing in your Award shall obligate the Company, its stockholders, its Board or employees to continue any relationship that you might have as a member of the Board, as an employee or as any other type of service provider for the Company.
12.Tax Consequences. You are responsible for any taxes due in connection with your receipt of this Award, including the vesting of such Award and delivery of Shares, and for declaring the Award to the relevant tax authority to which you are subject, if required.
