(c) Certain Mergers and Other Transactions. In the event of (i) a dissolution or liquidation of the Company, (ii) a sale of all or substantially all of the Companys assets (on a consolidated basis), (iii) a merger, consolidation or similar transaction involving the Company in which the holders of Shares receive consideration in respect of Shares, including cash, securities and/or other property, other than, or in addition to, shares of the surviving corporation in such transaction, the Committee shall, to the extent deemed appropriate by the Committee, have the power to:
(A) cancel, effective immediately prior to the occurrence of such event, each Incentive Award (whether or not then exercisable or vested), and, in full consideration of such cancellation, pay to the Participant to whom such Incentive Award was granted an amount in cash, for each Share subject to such Incentive Award, equal to the value, as determined by the Committee, of such Incentive Award, provided that with respect to any outstanding Option or share appreciation right such value shall be equal to the excess of (A) the value, as determined by the Committee, of the property (including cash) received by the holder of a Share as a result of such event over (B) the exercise price of such Option or base price of such share appreciation right (which, for the avoidance of doubt, may be zero in the case of underwater Options and share appreciation rights); or
(B) provide for the termination of an Incentive Award in (whether or not then exercisable or vested) in exchange for an award with respect to (1) some or all of the cash, securities and/or other property, if any, which a holder of the number of Shares subject to such Incentive Award would have received in such transaction upon the exercise of such Incentive Award or realization of the Participants rights as of the date of occurrence of the transaction (and, for the avoidance of doubt, if as of the date of the occurrence of the transaction the Committee determines in good faith that no amount would have been attained upon the exercise of such Incentive Award or realization of the Participants rights, then such Incentive Award may be terminated by the Company without payment) or (2) securities of the acquirer or surviving entity, or any combination of the foregoing and, incident thereto, in any case, make an equitable adjustment as determined by the Committee in the exercise price of the Incentive Award, or the number of securities or amount of property subject to the Incentive Award or provide for a payment (in cash or other property) to the Participant to whom such Incentive Award was granted in partial consideration for the exchange of the Incentive Award.
(d) Other Changes. In the event of any change in the capitalization of Chewy or corporate change other than those specifically referred to in Sections 8(a), (b) or (c), the Committee shall, to the extent deemed appropriate by the Committee, make such adjustments in the number and class of Shares subject to Incentive Awards outstanding on the date on which such change occurs and in such other terms of such Incentive Awards as the Committee may consider appropriate.
(e) No Other Rights. Except as expressly provided in the Plan or any Award Agreement, no Participant shall have any rights by reason of any subdivision or consolidation of Shares of any class, the payment of any dividends or dividend equivalents, any increase or decrease in the number of Shares of any class or any dissolution, liquidation, merger or consolidation of Chewy or any other corporation. Except as expressly provided in the Plan, no issuance by Chewy of Shares of any class, or securities convertible into Shares of any class, shall affect, and no adjustment by reason thereof shall be made with respect to, the number of Shares or amount of other property subject to, or the terms related to, any Incentive Award. In taking any of the actions permitted under this Section 8, the Committee will not be required to treat all Incentive Awards similarly in the transaction.
