In addition, your Cash Performance Award is subject to the following:

3.The aggregate maximum cash payout for each business unit (determined after applying the individual payout limitation noted in the next sentence, if applicable) in respect of all Cash Performance Awards for a specific Performance Period shall not exceed the product of (i) 1.75%, times (ii) the sum of the business unit’s change in entity value plus free cash flow (as such terms are defined in the Definition of iTSR) for that Performance Period. In no event will the Cash Performance Award payout to any one individual exceed $10 million for the Performance Period.

Cash Performance Payout Table
|iTSR for Performance Period||Payout (% of target)|
The payout formula will be applied on a sliding scale based on the business unit’s iTSR for the Performance Period.
Definition of iTSR
Conceptual formula for iTSR calculation:
Explanation of iTSR formula:
Change in entity value is nine times the change in EBITDA values, comparing the full base year to the full final year of the performance period. The base year iTSR is the minimum value of an Operating Company, to which the 9X multiple is applied to calculate an EV. The base year iTSR is calculated using the highest of the following:
(i) Base-Year EBITDA
(ii) 10% of Base-Year Sales
(iii) 90% of Prior-to-Base-Year iTSR Base
Free cash flow is cash flow generated by your Operating Company that is returned to Dover and is operating profit (EBIT) of the business plus depreciation and amortization, minus taxes, minus the change in working capital, and investments made for future growth (capital spending).
EBITDA is pre-tax income adjusted for non-operating and non-recurring items plus depreciation and amortization.

Rules for Transfers/Promotions
The following rules will apply to you if you are transferred from one Dover business unit to another Dover business unit. These rules apply to all Cash Performance payments you may be entitled to under this and any other Cash Performance Award under the Plan you may have, as if part of your original Award.
(i) For the first Cash Performance payment date that occurs after your transfer, any Cash Performance payment that may be due will be based on the performance of your old business unit.
(ii) For the second Cash Performance payment date that occurs after your transfer, any Cash Performance payment that may be due will be based on the performance of either your old business unit or your new business unit, whichever results in the higher payment to you.
(iii) For the third Cash Performance payment date that occurs after your transfer, any Cash Performance payment that may be due will be based on the performance of your new business unit.
(iv) Any Cash Performance payment under an award made at one business unit that becomes payable after you transfer to another business unit will still be based on that Award’s original dollar amount.
For purposes of these rules your old business unit is the business unit indicated on your Award. Your new business unit is the business unit where you are employed on the payment date.
