(c) Legends. The Founder acknowledges that all certificates evidencing shares of Restricted Stock shall bear a legend in substantially the following form, in addition to all other legends required by law or any other agreements to which the Founder is a party:
THE SHARES REPRESENTED HEREBY MAY NOT BE SOLD, ASSIGNED, TRANSFERRED, ENCUMBERED OR IN ANY MANNER DISPOSED OF, EXCEPT IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE TERMS OF A RESTRICTED STOCK AGREEMENT PURSUANT TO WHICH SUCH SHARES WERE ACQUIRED.

(b) For purposes hereof, the Founders Business Relationship with the Company shall not be considered as having terminated during any leave of absence if such leave of absence has been approved in writing by the Company and if such written approval contractually obligates the Company to continue the Founders Business Relationship with the Company after the approved period of absence; in the event of such an approved leave of absence, vesting of Unvested Restricted Stock shall be suspended (and the period of the leave of absence shall be added to all vesting dates) unless otherwise provided in the Companys written approval of the leave of absence. This Agreement shall not be affected by any change of Business Relationship within or among the Company and any Related Company (defined below) so long as the Founder continuously remains an employee, consultant, officer or director of the Company or any Related Company.
(c) Acceleration of Vesting.
(i) Upon the consummation of a Change of Control (as defined below) that occurs at any time during the period of the Founders Business Relationship with the Company or any parent corporation or any subsidiary thereof (each, a Related Company and collectively with the Company, the Related Companies), the Basic Vesting Schedule shall accelerate as set forth in Section B set forth on the signature page hereto (the Accelerated Vesting Schedule).
(ii) For purposes of this Agreement, Change of Control shall mean (A) the Company merges with or into or consolidates with any other corporation or sells, leases or otherwise disposes of all or substantially all of its assets or properties, unless the stockholders of the Company, before giving effect to such merger, consolidation or sale, lease or other disposition of assets, beneficially own at least fifty percent (50%) of the outstanding shares of capital stock of, or other equity interests in, the surviving or acquiring corporation or entity (calculated on a fully diluted basis); or (B) any person (other than persons who were stockholders of the Company prior to such transaction or any venture capital investor making a portfolio investment), together with its affiliates or associates (as defined in Rule 12b-2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act) or any successor rule thereto), acquires beneficial ownership (as defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act) of fifty percent (50%) or more of the outstanding shares of the Companys Common Stock.
4. Right of Repurchase.
(a) Scope of Right of Repurchase. The shares of Unvested Restricted Stock shall be subject to a right (but not an obligation) of repurchase by the Company as set forth in this Section 4 (the Right of Repurchase). The Founder shall not transfer any shares of Unvested Restricted Stock, or any interest in any Unvested Restricted Stock, except for a Permitted Transfer (as defined in Section 5(b) below).
(b) Condition Precedent to Exercise. The Right of Repurchase shall be exercisable with respect to any shares of Unvested Restricted Stock only during the 45-day period following the date on which the Founders Business Relationship with any Related Company terminates for any reason.
(c) Price. If the Company exercises the Right of Repurchase, it shall pay to the Founder and/or any Permitted Transferee thereof (as defined in Section 5(b) below) holding Unvested Restricted Stock, as applicable, with respect to each share of Unvested Restricted Stock, the Purchase Price thereof (as defined in Section 1(b)), as adjusted to reflect any stock dividend, stock split or other form of recapitalization occurring after the Effective Date (such amount being hereinafter referred to as the Repurchase Price).
(d) Exercise of Right of Repurchase. The Right of Repurchase shall be exercised by the Company, which exercise must be authorized by the affirmative vote of at least a majority of the members of the Companys Board of Directors entitled to vote thereon (other than the Founder if the Founder is then a member of the Board of Directors), by delivering to the Founder or his executor (and, if applicable, to any Permitted Transferee thereof holding shares of Unvested Restricted Stock) written notice (the Repurchase Notice) specifying the number of shares of Unvested Restricted Stock to be purchased and the Repurchase Price applicable thereto, and payment of the aggregate Repurchase Price prior to the expiration of the 45-day period specified in subsection (b) above. At the Companys option, payment of the aggregate Repurchase Price may be made (i) by delivery to the Founder or his executor (and, if applicable, to any such Permitted Transferee), with the Repurchase Notice, of a check payable to the order of the Founder or his executor (and, if applicable, to any such Permitted Transferee) in the amount of the Repurchase Price for the number of shares of Unvested Restricted Stock being purchased, or (ii) in the event the Founder is indebted to the Company, by cancellation by the Company of an amount of such indebtedness equal to the Repurchase Price for the number of shares of Unvested Restricted Stock being purchased, or (iii) by a combination of (i) and (ii) so that the combined payment and cancellation of indebtedness equals such aggregate Repurchase Price. Upon delivery of the Repurchase Notice and payment of the aggregate Repurchase Price in any of the ways described above, the Company shall become the legal and beneficial owner of the shares of Unvested Restricted Stock being purchased and all rights and interest therein or related thereto, and the Company shall have the right to transfer to its own name the number of shares of Unvested Restricted Stock being purchased by the Company, without further action by the Founder. If and to the extent the Right of Repurchase is not so exercised by delivering the Repurchase Notice and payment of the aggregate Repurchase Price within the 45-day period specified in subsection (b) above, the Right of Repurchase shall automatically expire and terminate effective upon the expiration of such 45-day period and the terminated Founder (and any such Permitted Transferee) shall continue to hold such shares of Restricted Stock pursuant to all of the other provisions of this Agreement.
(e) Free Assignment. Notwithstanding anything set forth in this Section 4 to the contrary, prior to the exercise by the Company of its Right of Repurchase, one or more persons or entities may be designated by the Company who shall have the right, but not the obligation, to exercise the Right of Repurchase and to acquire, in lieu of the Company, some or all (as determined by the Company) of the shares of Unvested Restricted Stock that the Company is entitled to purchase from the Founder and any Permitted Transferee hereunder by following the procedures set forth in subsection (d) above.
(f) Escrow. Upon issuance, the certificates representing Restricted Stock shall be deposited in escrow with the Company to be held and administered by the Company in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and the Founder shall execute and deliver a stock power in favor of the Company in substantially the form attached as Exhibit A. In addition, any new, substituted or additional securities or other property distributed upon or in respect of shares of Restricted Stock which are subject to the Right of Repurchase shall immediately be delivered to the Company to be held in escrow. Subject to the provisions hereof, the Founder or any Permitted Transferee, as the case may be, shall have all rights of a stockholder with respect to Restricted Stock held in escrow, including without limitation the right to vote such shares of Restricted Stock and the right to receive any cash dividends thereon All regular cash dividends on such shares (or other securities at the time held in escrow) shall be paid directly to the Founder and/or any Permitted Transferee thereof, as applicable, and shall not be held in escrow. Restricted Stock, together with any other assets or securities held in escrow hereunder, shall be (i) surrendered to the Company for repurchase and cancellation upon the Companys exercise of its Right of Repurchase, or (ii) released to the Founder and/or such Permitted Transferee upon the Founders or such Permitted Transferees request to the extent the shares are no longer subject to a Right of Repurchase (but not more frequently than once every six months). In any event, when all of the shares of Restricted Stock (and any other vested assets and securities attributable thereto) are no longer subject to a Right of Repurchase, such shares shall be released to the Founder and/or such Permitted Transferee.
5. Stock Transfer Restrictions.
(a) Restriction on Transfer. The Founder acknowledges that the Restricted Stock is subject to transfer restrictions. Except as otherwise provided in subsection (b) below, the Founder shall not, while the Restricted Stock is subject to the Right of Repurchase, sell, assign, transfer, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise dispose of, by operation of law or otherwise, (collectively, Transfer) any of the shares of Restricted Stock, or any interest therein, unless and until such shares of Restricted Stock are no longer subject to the Right of Repurchase.
(b) Permitted Transfers. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Founder may transfer any or all of his shares of Restricted Stock to a Permitted Transferee in a Permitted Transfer. As used herein, a Permitted Transfer shall mean a transfer of shares of Restricted Stock by the Founder (i) by beneficiary designation, will or intestate succession, or (ii) to any member of the Founders family (which for purposes of this definition shall include a spouse, child (natural or adopted) or any other lineal descendant of the Founder or his/her spouse) or to the trustee of any trust, partnership or limited liability company established by the Founder for the benefit of, or the ownership interests of which are wholly-owned by, the Founder or any such members of the Founders family, provided that in either case such transferee (each, a Permitted Transferee) agrees in writing on a form prescribed by the Company to be bound by all provisions of this Agreement.
6. Tax Consequences.
(a) The Founder has reviewed with his own tax advisors the federal, state, local and foreign tax consequences of this stock purchase and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (including any tax consequences that may result under recently enacted tax legislation). The Founder is relying solely on such advisors and not on any statements or representations of the Company or any of its agents. The Founder understands that the Founder (and not the Company) shall be responsible for the Founders own tax liability that may arise as a result of this stock purchase or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. The Founder understands that Section 83 of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended (the Code), taxes as ordinary income the difference between the amount paid for the Restricted Stock and the fair market value of the Restricted Stock as of the date any restrictions on the Restricted Stock lapse. In this context, restriction includes the right of the Company to buy back the Restricted Stock pursuant to certain of its rights under Section 4 of this Agreement.
(b) The Founder hereby agrees to deliver to the Company a signed copy of any instrument, letter or other document that the Founder may execute and file with the Internal Revenue Service evidencing his election under Section 83(b) of the Code to treat his receipt of Restricted Stock as included in his gross income in the year of receipt. The Founder shall deliver the said copy of any such instrument of election to the Company within five (5) days after the date on which any such election is required to be made in accordance with the appropriate provisions of the Code or applicable Regulations thereunder.
THE FOUNDER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT IS FOUNDERS SOLE RESPONSIBILITY, AND NOT THE COMPANYS, TO FILE TIMELY AN ELECTION UNDER SECTION 83(B), EVEN IF THE FOUNDER REQUESTS THE COMPANY OR ITS REPRESENTATIVES TO MAKE THIS FILING ON THE FOUNDERS BEHALF.
(c) It is understood by the parties hereto that as a result of the issuance of the Restricted Stock and the execution of this Agreement, the Company may be obligated to pay withholding taxes in respect of the Restricted Stock at the time the Founder becomes subject to Federal income taxation with respect to the Restricted Stock and the Company has the right to deduct from payments of any kind otherwise due to the Founder any federal, state or local taxes of any kind required by law to be withheld with respect to the purchase of the Restricted Stock by the Founder. In the event that at the time such withholding tax obligations arise (i) the Founder is no longer in the employ of the Company, or (ii) the Founders other cash compensation from the Company is not sufficient to meet such withholding tax obligations, the Founder hereby agrees to reimburse the Company for all withholding taxes required to be paid in respect of this transaction within thirty (30) days after written request therefor is made to the Founder. Such request shall be made at or about the time the Company is required to pay such withholding taxes. In the event the Company determines that it is not obligated to withhold taxes payable by the Founder with respect to the Restricted Stock, but that it is later held liable due to any non-payment of taxes on the part of the Founder, the Founder agrees on his behalf, and on behalf of his heirs, executors, administrators, legal representatives and assigns, to indemnify the Company in the amount of any payment made by it in respect of such liability.
7. No Retention Rights; Non-Solicitation Covenant.
(a) No Retention Rights. Nothing in this Agreement shall confer upon the Founder any right to a continued Business Relationship for any period of specific duration or interfere with or otherwise restrict in any way the rights of any Related Company or of the Founder, which rights are hereby expressly reserved by each, to terminate his or her Business Relationship at any time and for any reason, with or without cause.
(b) Non-Solicitation. In consideration of the Companys issuance of the Restricted Stock to the Founder in accordance with the provisions hereof, and in further consideration of and as a condition precedent to the Founders Business Relationship with the Related Companies, the Founder agrees that, during the period of the Founders Business Relationship with the Related Companies, and for a period of twelve (12) months after any termination or cessation of the Founders Business Relationship with the Related Companies, whether with or without cause, the Founder will not in any capacity, either separately, jointly or in association with others, directly or indirectly, solicit any of the employees, customers, suppliers, consultants or advisors of the Related Companies that were such with respect to the Related Companies at any time during the twelve (12) months immediately preceding the date of the termination or cessation of the Founders Business Relationship or who becomes such with respect to the Related Companies at any time during the twelve (12) months immediately following the date of the termination or cessation of the Founders Business Relationship, to terminate or otherwise modify their relationship with the Related Companies.
(c) The Founders obligations under this Agreement, including without limitation under this Section 7, shall survive the termination or cessation of Founders Business Relationship with the Related Companies.
(d) The Founder acknowledges that the restrictions imposed by this Agreement are necessary for the protection of the business, goodwill and other legitimate interests of the Related Companies and are considered by the Founder to be reasonable for such purposes.
(e) FOUNDER UNDERSTANDS THAT THIS AGREEMENT MAY RESTRICT HIS OR HER RIGHT TO ACCEPT EMPLOYMENT OR PERFORM SERVICES ON BEHALF OF OTHER COMPANIES DURING AND AFTER THE PERIOD OF HIS OR HER BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE COMPANY.

(d) Adjustment for Stock Splits, Stock Dividends, etc.
(i) If from time to time during the term of the Right of Repurchase there is any stock split-up, stock dividend, stock distribution or other reclassification of the Common Stock of the Company, any and all new, substituted or additional securities to which the Founder is entitled by reason of his ownership of Restricted Stock shall be automatically subject to the Right of Repurchase, the restrictions on transfer and the other provisions of this Agreement in the same manner and to the same extent as the shares of Restricted Stock, and the Repurchase Price, number of shares of Restricted Stock, and vesting schedule shall be appropriately adjusted.

Such shares of Restricted Stock shall be deemed to have been purchased in accordance with Section 4, whether or not the certificate(s) therefor have been delivered as required by this Agreement.
