The Vesting Schedule for any Options awarded is set forth above under “Vesting Schedule.”  The Options will only vest if the Grantee continuously serves on the Board from the Grant Date through the applicable Vesting Date, and except as otherwise provided by this Award Agreement, any unvested Options will be forfeited upon any termination of service.  Upon termination of service, vested Options shall remain exercisable until they expire as set forth below under “Expiration Date.”



No Option will be exercisable prior to the date on which it vests.  Upon Vesting, the Options will allow the purchase of Shares at the Option Price noted above.  Each Option provides for the ability to purchase a single Share.  

The Options shall be exercised by written notice or by any other method permitted by the Committee stating the number of Options to be exercised, with payment of the aggregate Option Price for the number of Options exercised.



The aggregate Option Price for the Shares as to which an Option is exercised shall be paid to the Company in full at the time of exercise at the election of the Grantee:



in cash or its equivalent (e.g., by cashier’s check);



to the extent permitted by the Committee, in Shares previously owned by the Grantee having a Fair Market Value equal to the aggregate Option Price for the Shares being purchased and satisfying such other requirements as may be imposed by the Committee,



any combination of the foregoing; or



in consideration received by the Company under a cashless exercise program (whether through a broker or otherwise) implemented by the Company in connection with the Plan.

Under no circumstances will fractional Shares be issued; if the Grantee elects to pay the Option Price for the Shares using Shares already owned by him, or Shares to be received from his exercise of this Option and such payment involves a fraction of a Share, the remaining fraction of such Share shall be redeemed by the Company and the Company shall pay the Grantee the Fair Market Value of such fractional Share in cash in lieu of issuing such fractional Share.

Expiration Date:

Each Option will expire at the close of business on the day immediately prior to the seventh (7th) anniversary of the Grant Date, unless sooner forfeited in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Award Agreement or the Plan.

Grantee Rights:

The Grantee will not have any of the rights of a shareholder with respect to the Shares underlying or covered by the Options, whether or not vested, until such Shares are actually issued and delivered to the Grantee.

Change of Control:

Upon the occurrence of a Change of Control, the Committee may, but shall not be required, to make one or more of the adjustments set forth in Section 14.2 of the Plan to the Options if and to the extent that the Options are outstanding at the time of the Change of Control.  


Except as otherwise provided by the Plan, the Options are not in any manner subject to alteration, anticipation, sale, transfer, assignment, pledge or encumbrance.

Continued Service:

The Grantee’s receipt of this Award does not give the Grantee right to remain in the service of the Company or as a member of the Board.



Data Privacy:

By accepting the Options, the Grantee agrees that any data, including the Grantee’s personal data, may be exchanged among the Company and its Affiliates to the extent the Company determines necessary or advisable to administer the Plan and the Options, as well as with any third-party engaged by the Company to administer the Plan and the Options granted under the Plan.


Pursuant to Section 15.2 of the Plan, the Committee may from time to time amend this Award Agreement; provided, however, no amendment shall materially adversely impair the rights of the Grantee under this Award Agreement without the Grantee’s consent.


The Options described in this Award Agreement are intended to be exempt from Section 409A under the stock rights exemption thereto, and the Plan and this Award Agreement shall be interpreted and administered consistent with such intention, and in accordance with Eastman Kodak Company’s Policy Regarding Section 409A Compliance.  The Company may unilaterally amend this Award Agreement for purposes of exemption from or compliance with Section 409A if, in its sole discretion, the Company determines that such amendment would not have a material adverse effect with respect to the Grantee’s rights under this Award Agreement.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, no person connected with the Plan or the Options in any capacity, including, but not limited to, the Company and its directors, officers, agents and employees makes any representation, commitment, or guarantee that any tax treatment will be applicable with respect to the Options or payments made under this Award Agreement, or that such tax treatment will apply to or be available to the Grantee.

The obligations of the Company pursuant hereto are subject to compliance with all applicable governmental laws, regulations, rules and administrative actions, including, but not limited to, the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the Exchange Act, and all rules promulgated thereunder.  In order to avoid any violations, the Committee may, at any time and from time to time, impose additional restrictions upon the Options.

The Plan is incorporated herein by reference, and, by accepting this Award, the Grantee agrees to be subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan.  The Award Agreement and the Plan constitute the entire agreement and understanding of the parties with respect to the Options.  In the event of any conflict between this Award Agreement and the Plan, the terms of the Plan shall control unless the context indicates otherwise.
