2019 OMNIBUS INCENTIVE PLAN
Pursuant to the Performance Stock Units Grant Notice (the Grant Notice) delivered to the Participant (as defined in the Grant Notice), and subject to the terms of this Performance Stock Unit Agreement (this Performance Stock Unit Agreement) and the Change Healthcare Inc. 2019 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the Plan), Change Healthcare Inc., a Delaware corporation (the Company), and the Participant agree as follows. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the same meaning as set forth in the Plan.
1. Grant of Performance Stock Units. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein and in the Plan, the Company hereby grants to the Participant the number of Performance Stock Units provided in the Grant Notice (with each Performance Stock Unit representing the right to receive one share of Common Stock upon the vesting of such Performance Stock Unit). The Company may make one or more additional grants of Performance Stock Units to the Participant under this Performance Stock Unit Agreement by providing the Participant with a new Grant Notice, which may also include any terms and conditions differing from this Performance Stock Unit Agreement to the extent provided therein. The Company reserves all rights with respect to the granting of additional Performance Stock Units hereunder and makes no implied promise to grant additional Performance Stock Units.
2. Vesting. Subject to the conditions contained herein and in the Plan, the Performance Stock Units shall vest as provided in the Grant Notice. With respect to any Performance Stock Unit, the period of time that such Performance Stock Unit remains subject to vesting shall be its Restricted Period.
3. Settlement of Performance Stock Units. Subject to the proviso to Section 9(d)(ii) of the Plan, as soon as reasonable practicable (and in any event, within 30 days) following the Determination Date (as defined in the Grant Notice), the Company shall issue to the Participant or the Participants beneficiary, without charge, one share of Common Stock (or other securities or other property, as applicable) for each such outstanding vested Performance Stock Unit.
4. Treatment of Performance Stock Units Upon Termination. Unless otherwise determined by the Committee, in the event of the Participants Termination for any reason:
(a) all vesting with respect to the Performance Stock Units shall cease (after taking into account vesting of Performance Stock Units as set forth in the Grant Notice); and
(b) the unvested Performance Stock Units shall be forfeited to the Company by the Participant for no consideration as of the date of such Termination.
5. Company; Participant.
(a) The term Company as used in this Performance Stock Unit Agreement with reference to employment shall include the Board, the Company and its Subsidiaries.
(b) Whenever the word Participant is used in any provision of this Performance Stock Unit Agreement under circumstances where the provision should logically be construed to apply to the executors, the administrators, or the person or persons to whom the Performance Stock Units may be transferred by will or by the laws of descent and distribution, the word Participant shall be deemed to include such person or persons.
6. Non-Transferability. The Performance Stock Units are not transferable by the Participant except to Permitted Transferees in accordance with Section 13(b) of the Plan. Except as otherwise provided herein, no assignment or transfer of the Performance Stock Units, or of the rights represented thereby, whether voluntary or involuntary, by operation of law or otherwise, shall vest in the assignee or transferee any interest or right herein whatsoever, but immediately upon such assignment or transfer the Performance Stock Units shall terminate and become of no further effect.
7. Rights as Stockholder. The Participant or a Permitted Transferee of the Performance Stock Units shall have no rights as a stockholder with respect to any share of Common Stock underlying a Performance Stock Unit unless and until the Participant shall have become the holder of record or the beneficial owner of such Common Stock, and no adjustment shall be made for dividends or distributions or other rights in respect of such share of Common Stock for which the record date is prior to the date upon which the Participant shall become the holder of record or the beneficial owner thereof.
8. Dividend Equivalents. The Performance Stock Units shall be entitled to be credited with dividend equivalent payments (upon the payment by the Company of dividends on shares of Common Stock), which shall accrue in cash without interest and shall be delivered in cash. Accumulated dividend equivalents shall be payable at such time as the underlying Performance Stock Units to which such dividend equivalents relate are settled in accordance with Section 3 above. For the avoidance of doubt, dividend equivalents accrued in respect of Performance Stock Units shall only be paid to the extent the underlying Performance Stock Unit vests and is settled, and to the extent that any Performance Stock Units are forfeited and not vested, the Participant shall have no right to such dividend equivalent payments.
9. Tax Withholding. The provisions of Section 13(d) of the Plan are incorporated herein by reference and made a part hereof. In addition, the Committee, subject to its having considered the applicable accounting impact of any such determination, has full discretion to allow the Participant to satisfy, in whole or in part, any additional income, employment and/or other applicable taxes payable by the Participant with respect to an Award by electing to have the Company withhold from the shares of Common Stock otherwise issuable or deliverable to, or that would otherwise be retained by, the Participant upon the grant, vesting or settlement of the Award, as applicable, shares of Common Stock having an aggregate Fair Market Value that is greater than the applicable minimum required statutory withholding liability (but such withholding may in no event be in excess of the maximum statutory withholding amount(s) in the Participants relevant tax jurisdictions).
10. Notice. Every notice or other communication relating to this Performance Stock Unit Agreement between the Company and the Participant shall be in writing, and shall be mailed to or delivered to the party for whom it is intended at such address as may from time to time be designated by such party in a notice mailed or delivered to the other party as herein provided; provided that, unless and until some other address be so designated, all notices or communications by the Participant to the Company shall be mailed or delivered to the Company at its principal executive office, to the attention of the Corporate Secretary, and all notices or communications by the Company to the Participant may be given to the Participant personally or may be mailed to the Participant at the Participants last known address, as reflected in the Companys records. Notwithstanding the above, all notices and communications between the Participant and any third-party plan administrator shall be mailed, delivered, transmitted or sent in accordance with the procedures established by such third-party plan administrator and communicated to the Participant from time to time.
11. No Right to Continued Service. This Performance Stock Unit Agreement does not confer upon the Participant any right to continue as an employee or service provider to the Company.
12. Binding Effect. This Performance Stock Unit Agreement shall be binding upon the heirs, executors, administrators and successors of the parties hereto.
13. Waiver and Amendments. Except as otherwise set forth in Section 12 of the Plan, any waiver, alteration, amendment or modification of any of the terms of this Performance Stock Unit Agreement shall be valid only if made in writing and signed by the parties hereto; provided, however, that any such waiver, alteration, amendment or modification is consented to on the Companys behalf by the Committee. No waiver by either of the parties hereto of their rights hereunder shall be deemed to constitute a waiver with respect to any subsequent occurrences or transactions hereunder unless such waiver specifically states that it is to be construed as a continuing waiver.
14. Governing Law. This Performance Stock Unit Agreement shall be construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to the principles of conflicts of law thereof. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Performance Stock Unit Agreement, the Grant Notice or the Plan to the contrary, if any suit or claim is instituted by the Participant or the Company relating to this Performance Stock Unit Agreement, the Grant Notice or the Plan, the Participant hereby submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of and venue in the courts of Delaware.
