In addition, your Restricted Stock Unit Award is subject to the following:
1.A Restricted Stock Unit is a bookkeeping entry on the books of Dover. No shares of Dover common stock shall be issued to you in respect of the Restricted Stock Unit Award until the restrictions have lapsed at the end of a Restricted Period. Within 30 days following the end of the Restricted Period, Dover shall issue shares of Common Stock in your name equal to the number of Restricted Stock Units that have vested during the Restricted Period less applicable tax withholding. In the event that your employment shall terminate prior to your vesting in the Restricted Stock Units, the Restricted Stock Units shall be forfeited.
2.You shall vest in the Restricted Stock Unit Award, and all restrictions thereon shall lapse, with respect to 33% of your Restricted Stock Units on March 15, 2021 (or the first trading thereafter if such date is not a trading day), with respect to 33% of your Restricted Stock Units on March 15, 2022 (or the first trading thereafter if such date is not a trading day) and with respect to 34% of your Restricted Stock Units on March 15, 2023 (or the first trading thereafter if such date is not a trading day), subject to the forfeiture provisions of the Plan. You must be an active employee of Dover or an affiliate at the end of each Restricted Period in order for your Restricted Stock Units to vest, with certain exceptions as provided in the Plan.
3.During the Restricted Period you shall not have any rights of a stockholder or the right to receive any dividends declared and other distributions paid with respect to the Restricted Stock Units. Within 30 days after the end of each Restricted Period you shall be paid all Dividend Equivalents with respect to the Restricted Stock Units that have vested.
4.You do not have any voting rights with respect to Restricted Stock Units.
5.As a condition of receiving your Restricted Stock Unit 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 ###-###-####.
