Performance Share Payout Table
|iTSR for Performance Period||Payout (% of target)|
The payout formula will be applied on a sliding scale between 0% and 400% 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:
(ii)10% of Base-Year Sales
(iii)90% of Prior-to-Base-Year iTSR Base
Free cash flow is the cash flow generated by your business unit, including your business unit’s operating profit plus depreciation, amortization and proceeds from dispositions, less taxes and investments made for future growth (capital spending, working capital and acquisitions) and adjusted for other non-recurring items.
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 Performance Share payments you may be entitled to under this and any other Performance Share Award under the Plan you may have, as if part of your original Award.
(i) For the first Performance Share payment date that occurs after your transfer, any Performance Share payment that may be due will be based on the performance of your old business unit.
(ii)For the second Performance Share payment date that occurs after your transfer, any Performance Share 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 Performance Share payment date that occurs after your transfer, any Performance Share payment that may be due will be based on the performance of your new business unit.
(iv)Any Performance Share 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 share 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.
