CENTRAL VALLEY COMMUNITY BANCORP
2015 OMNIBUS INCENTIVE PLAN
RESTRICTED STOCK AWARD AGREEMENT
This Restricted Stock Award Agreement (Award Agreement), effective February 1, 2022 (Effective Date), is between Central Valley Community Bancorp (Company), a California corporation, and James Kim (Participant). This Award Agreement is made pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Central Valley Community Bancorp 2015 Omnibus Incentive Plan (Plan), a copy of which is attached to this Award Agreement as Exhibit A. Unless the context otherwise requires, all capitalized terms used herein have the respective meanings assigned to them in the Plan.
A.Award of Restricted Stock.
Pursuant to that certain Employment Agreement by and between Central Valley Community Bank (Bank) and Participant, dated November 1, 2021, the Company offers to Participant the right to receive three awards of Restricted Stock subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein.
The initial award date will be February 1, 2022 (Effective Date) (such award, the Initial Award). The second award date will be the first anniversary of the Effective Date (such award, the Second Award), subject to Participant’s Continuous Service through the second award date. The third award date will be the second anniversary of the Effective Date (such award, the Third Award), subject to Participant’s Continuous Service through the third award date.
Each award of Restricted Stock will have a value of up to twenty-five percent (25%) of Executive’s Base Salary on the respective award date as reasonably determined by the Board of Directors of the Company, and such Restricted Stock will be transferred into Participant’s name as of the respective award date, according to the terms and conditions set forth in the Plan and this Award Agreement.
The Restricted Period will end upon the satisfaction of all terms and conditions set forth in the Plan and this Award Agreement, and the vested Restricted Stock (Vested Restricted Stock) will be released from restrictions upon the satisfaction of the following criteria.
1.Participant will vest in the Restricted Stock awarded pursuant to this Award Agreement as of the specified anniversaries of the Effective Date of the award, in accordance with the following schedule:
a.Participant will vest in one-fifth (20%) of the shares of the Restricted Stock awarded pursuant to this Award Agreement on the one-year anniversary of the Effective Date (Vesting Commencement Date) (and if no such date exists, then on the last day of the month).
b.Participant will subsequently vest in one-fifth (20%) of the remaining Restricted Stock awarded on each anniversary of the Vesting Commencement Date, such that all Restricted Stock will be Vested Restricted Stock on the fourth anniversary of the Vesting Commencement Date.
2. As of each vesting date, restrictions placed upon the specified Restricted Stock will lapse, subject to Participant’s Continuous Service through the vesting date.
The Company’s secretary will retain custody of Participant’s original stock certificates for safekeeping.
In the event of a Change in Control (as defined in the Plan) during Participant’s Continuous Service, the vesting periods will accelerate such that one hundred percent (100%) of the Restricted Stock will immediately become Vested Restricted Stock.
D. Limitation of Benefits under Certain Circumstances.
If any transfer of stock pursuant to this Award Agreement, either alone or together with other payments, benefits, and transfers which Participant has the right to receive from Company and/or Central Valley Community Bank (Bank), would constitute a “parachute payment” under Section 280G of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the Code), the value of stock transferred will be reduced, in the manner determined by the Board of Directors of the Company, by the amount, if any, which is the minimum necessary to result in no portion of the transfer being non-deductible to the Company or Bank pursuant to Section 280G of the Code and subject to the excise tax imposed under Section 4999 of the Code. The determination of any reduction in the value of stock transferred will be based upon the opinion of independent counsel selected by the Company and paid by the Company. Such counsel will be reasonably acceptable to Participant; will promptly prepare the foregoing opinion, but in no event later than thirty (30) days from the date of any stock transfer under the terms of this Award Agreement; and may use such actuaries or other consultants as such counsel deems necessary or advisable for the purpose.
E. Regulatory Compliance.
This Award Agreement is drawn to be effective in the State of California and will be construed in accordance with California laws, except to the extent superseded by federal law. The parties specifically acknowledge that while the restrictions contained in Section 131 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991, relating to the payment of bonuses and increases for senior executive officers of institutions which are deemed “undercapitalized”, do not currently apply to the Company or Bank such provisions may affect the terms of this Award Agreement if the Company or Bank should be deemed undercapitalized by any state or federal regulatory authority (including, without limitation, the Federal Deposit Insurance Company and the Federal Reserve Board). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, under no circumstances will the Company or Bank be required to take any other actions under this Award Agreement if such actions would result in any violation of applicable law, rule, regulation or regulatory directive.
Notwithstanding any provisions of this Award Agreement to the contrary, if any Payment Restrictions (as hereinafter defined) require the recapture or “clawback” of any benefits received by or stock transferred to the Participant under this Award Agreement, Participant will repay or transfer stock back to the Company or Bank the aggregate amount of any such benefits or stock, with such repayment or transfer to occur no later than thirty (30) days following Participant’s receipt of a written notice from the Company or Bank indicating that benefits or stock received by Participant under this Award Agreement are subject to recapture or clawback pursuant to the Payment Restrictions. “Payment Restrictions” means any applicable state or federal statute, law, regulation, or regulatory interpretation or other guidance, or contractual arrangement with or required by a governmental authority that would require the Company or Bank to seek or demand repayment or return of any benefits or stock received by Participant for any reason,
including, without limitation, FIL-66-02010 and any related or successor regulatory guidance, any regulatory or enforcement interpretations or guidance provided by the Securities Exchange Commission or other regulatory body under Section 954 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, or the Company or Bank or its successors later obtaining information indicating that Participant has committed, is substantially responsible for, or has violated, the respective acts or omission, conditions, or offenses outlined under 12 C.F.R. 359.4(a)(4).
G. The Plan.
The provisions of the Plan are incorporated into this Award Agreement by reference and, in the event of any conflict between this Award Agreement and the Plan, the terms of the Plan will govern, unless the Company has specifically provided otherwise in this Award Agreement.
H. Stock Certificates; Legend.
The Restricted Stock granted under the Plan and this Award Agreement will be evidenced by issuance of a stock certificate or certificates, which certificate or certificates will be held by the Company. Such certificate or certificates will be registered in the name of the Participant and will bear the following (or similar) legend:
