pERFORMANCE Stock Award Agreement
This Performance Stock Award Agreement (this “Agreement”), is entered into on the Date of Grant, subject to the Participant’s acceptance of the terms of the Agreement evidenced by the Participant’s signature on the Performance Stock Award Certificate accompanying this Agreement (the “Certificate”), between Cinemark Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and the Participant named in the Certificate.
Under the Cinemark Holdings, Inc. 2017 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), the Administrator has authorized the grant to the Participant of the right to receive Shares (the “Award”), under the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement and the Plan. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined in the Agreement have the meanings ascribed to them in the Plan.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the benefits to be derived from the mutual observance of the covenants and promises contained herein and other good and valuable consideration, the sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:
1.Basis for Award. This Performance Stock Award is granted under the Plan for valid consideration provided to the Company by the Participant. By the Participant’s execution of the Certificate, the Participant agrees to accept the Award rights granted under the Certificate and this Agreement and to receive the Performance Shares (defined below) designated in the Certificate subject to the terms of the Plan, the Certificate and this Agreement.
2.Performance Stock Award. The Company hereby awards and grants to the Participant, for valid consideration with a value in excess of the aggregate par value of the Common Stock awarded to the Participant, the number of Shares set forth in the Certificate, which are subject to the restrictions and conditions set forth in the Plan, the Certificate and in this Agreement (the “Performance Shares”). One or more stock certificates representing the number of Performance Shares specified in the Certificate will hereby be registered in the Participant’s name (the “Stock Certificate”), but will be deposited and held in the custody of the Company for the Participant’s account as provided in Section 4 hereof until such Performance Shares become vested and all restrictions thereon have lapsed. The Participant acknowledges and agrees that those Shares may be issued as a book entry with the Company’s transfer agent and that no physical certificates need be issued for as long as such Shares remain subject to forfeiture and restrictions on transfer.
(a)Vesting Schedule. The Performance Shares will vest and restrictions on transfer will lapse pursuant to the Vesting Schedule set forth in the Certificate, subject to satisfaction of the performance goals therein and on condition that the Participant is still in Continuous Service at the end of the performance period set forth in the Certificate (the “Performance Period”).
(b)Termination of Continuous Service
Cinemark Holdings, Inc. 2017 Omnibus Incentive Plan Performance Stock Award Agreement
(i)Except as otherwise provided in (x) a Service Agreement the terms of which have been approved by the Administrator (y) Section 3(b)(ii) of this Agreement or (z) the Plan, if the Participant ceases Continuous Service for any reason before the end of the Performance Period, the Participant will immediately forfeit the Performance Shares that have not vested and as to which restrictions have not lapsed (“Unvested Shares”), and such Unvested Shares will be cancelled as outstanding Shares.
(ii)In the event that a Participant’s Service to the Company or a Subsidiary is terminated because of Participant’s death or Disability, the Participant or his estate or legal representative, as applicable, shall have the right to receive certificates for any outstanding Performance Shares which Performance Shares shall remain outstanding through the remainder of the applicable performance period (without regard to any continued employment requirement) and if or to the extent the performance provisions are attained shall become vested without regard to any continued employment requirement on a pro-rata basis based upon the percentage determined by dividing (i) the number of days from and including the grant date of such Performance Shares through the termination date of Participant’s employment, by (ii) the number of days from and including the grant date to the end of the applicable performance period without regard to any continued employment requirement. The Company shall as promptly as practical deliver the certificates required to be delivered under this Section 3(b)(ii) to the Participant, his estate, or legal representative, as applicable.
(c)Restriction on Transfer of Unvested Shares. The Participant is not permitted to transfer, assign, grant a lien or security interest in, pledge, hypothecate, encumber, or otherwise dispose of any of the Unvested Shares, except as permitted by this Agreement.
4.Deposit of the Unvested Shares. The Unvested Shares shall remain on the books of the Company until they become vested, at which time such Performance Shares will no longer constitute Unvested Shares. If requested by the Company, the Participant shall execute and deliver to the Company, concurrently with the execution of this Agreement (or, if requested by the Company, from time to time thereafter during the Performance Period) blank stock powers for use in connection with the transfer to the Company or its designee of Unvested Shares that do not become vested. Upon the Administrator’s determination of the Performance Goal achievement and subject to satisfaction of the applicable tax withholding in accordance with Section 8, the Company will deliver to the Participant the Performance Shares that become vested on the lapse of the forfeiture and non-transferability restrictions thereon.
5.Rights as a Stockholder, Dividends. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, the Participant will have all the rights of a stockholder with respect to the Performance Shares, including the right to vote the Performance Shares and to receive any dividends thereon; provided that any dividends payable with respect to Unvested Shares will not be payable to the Participant until the Unvested Shares with respect to which the dividends were paid become vested and are no longer subject to forfeiture and restrictions on transfer. If the Unvested Shares are subsequently forfeited, dividends that relate to the forfeited Unvested Shares will automatically be forfeited.
6.Compliance with Laws and Regulations. The issuance and transfer of Common Stock is subject to the Company’s and the Participant’s full compliance, to the satisfaction of the Company and its counsel, with all applicable requirements of federal, state and foreign securities laws and
Cinemark Holdings, Inc. 2017 Omnibus Incentive Plan Performance Stock Award Agreement Page 2
with all applicable requirements of any securities exchange on which the Common Stock may be listed at the time of such issuance or transfer. The Participant understands that the Company is under no obligation to register or qualify the Shares with the Securities and Exchange Commission, any state securities commission, foreign securities regulatory authority or any securities exchange to effect such compliance.
7.Section 83(b) Election. The Participant may elect, within 30 days of the Date of Grant, to include in gross income for federal income tax purposes under Section 83(b) of the Code, an amount equal to the aggregate Fair Market Value on the Date of Grant of the Restricted Shares (less the amount, if any, paid by the Participant (other than by prior or future services) for the Restricted Shares). In connection with any such election, the Participant must promptly provide the Company with a copy of the election as filed with the Internal Revenue Service and pay to the Company, or make such other arrangements satisfactory to the Administrator to pay to the Company based on the Fair Market Value of the Restricted Shares on the Date of Grant, any federal, state or local taxes required by law to be withheld with respect to the Restricted Shares at the time of the election. If the Participant fails to make such payments, the Company will have the right to deduct from any payment of any kind otherwise due to Participant, to the extent permitted by law, any federal, state or local taxes required to be withheld with respect to the Restricted Shares.
8.Tax Withholding. As a condition to the release of Shares upon vesting and lapse of restrictions on transfer, the Participant shall, not later than the date on which the Award becomes a taxable event for federal income tax purposes, pay to the Company any federal, state and local taxes required by law to be withheld on account of such taxable event. Unless otherwise determined by the Administrator in its discretion, the tax-withholding obligation shall be satisfied by retaining Shares from the Participant with a Fair Market Value equal to the amount of tax required to be withheld by law, provided, that the Participant may elect to satisfy the tax-withholding obligation instead by cash or check.
9.No Right to Continued Service. Nothing in this Agreement or in the Plan imposes or may be deemed to impose, by implication or otherwise, any limitation on any right of the Company or its Affiliates to terminate the Participant’s Continuous Service at any time.
10.Representations and Warranties of Participant. The Participant represents and warrants to the Company as follows:

(c)Rule 144.

(d)Compliance with Securities Laws. The Participant understands and acknowledges that, notwithstanding any other provision of the Agreement to the contrary, the vesting and holding of the Performance Shares is expressly conditioned on compliance with the Securities Act and all applicable federal, state, and foreign securities laws.

12.Restrictive Legends and Stop-Transfer Orders
(a)Legends. To the extent that a Stock Certificate or Certificates representing Unvested Shares is issued in physical form rather than through book entry with the Company’s transfer agent, the Participant understands and agrees that the Company will place the legends set forth below or similar legends on any Stock Certificate evidencing the Common Stock, together with any other legends that may be required by federal, state, or foreign securities laws, the Company’s articles of incorporation or bylaws, any other agreement between the Participant and the Company, or any agreement between the Participant and any third party:
THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN RESTRICTIONS ON PUBLIC RESALE AND TRANSFER, AS SET FORTH IN A PERFORMANCE STOCK AWARD AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE ISSUER AND THE ORIGINAL HOLDER OF THESE SHARES. SUCH PUBLIC RESALE AND TRANSFER RESTRICTIONS ARE BINDING ON TRANSFEREES OF THESE SHARES.
The Company will remove the above legend at such time as the Shares in question are no longer subject to restrictions on public resale and transfer pursuant to this Agreement. Any legends required by applicable federal, state or foreign securities laws will be removed at such time as such legends are no longer required.
(b)Stop-Transfer Instructions. To ensure compliance with the restrictions imposed by this Agreement, the Company may issue appropriate “stop-transfer” instructions to its transfer agent, if any, and if the Company transfers its own Common Stock, it may make appropriate notations to the same effect in its own records.
