In addition, your SSAR Award is subject to the following:
1. The earliest date on which the SSAR Award may be exercised is the third anniversary of the Grant Date. Earlier exercise may be permitted in the event of a Change of Control or death or disability as provided in the Plan. No payment is required to exercise a SSAR Award.
2. It is your responsibility to keep track of your SSAR Award and to ensure that you exercise your SSAR Award before it expires. Dover will not remind or notify you that your SSAR Award is nearing its expiration date.
3. Your SSAR Award is subject to earlier termination as provided in the Plan, for example, upon termination of employment (including retirement) prior to the expiration date.
4. Upon exercise of your SSAR Award, you will be entitled to receive from Dover that number of whole shares of Common Stock equal in value, on the date of exercise of the SSAR Award, to the excess of (A) the value of a share of Common Stock on the date of exercise of the SSAR Award multiplied by the number of SSARs being exercised over (B) the sum of (i) the per share base price of the SSAR Award being exercised multiplied by the number of SSARs being exercised, plus (ii) unless you elect to pay such tax in cash, any amount of tax that must be withheld in connection with such exercise; provided, however, for any Section 16 Person, (B) above will automatically include any amount of tax that must be withheld in connection with such exercise. Fractional shares shall be disregarded.
5. As a condition of receiving your SSAR Award, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of Dover’s Anti-hedging and Anti-pledging Policy (which is part of Dover’s Securities Trading and Confidentiality Policy) and by Dover’s Clawback Policy, as such policies may be in effect from time to time. The Anti-hedging and Anti-pledging Policy prohibits hedging or pledging any Dover equity securities held by you or certain designees, whether such Dover securities are, or have been, acquired under the Plan, another compensation plan sponsored by Dover, or otherwise. Please review the Anti-hedging and Anti-pledging Policy to make sure that you are in compliance. You may obtain a copy of the current version of the Anti-hedging and Anti-pledging Policy and the Clawback Policy by contacting the Benefits Department at ###-###-####.
6. For Non-US Employees, your SSAR Award is subject to the terms and conditions of the Addendum for Non-US Employees attached to your SSAR Award letter.
7. Your SSAR Award is not transferrable by you other than by will or the laws of descent and distribution and in accordance with the applicable terms and conditions of the Plan.
8. Dover reserves the right to amend, modify, or terminate the Plan at any time in its discretion without notice.
