SPONSOR IN REVENUE SHARE PLAN
Selecting a sponsor is an important decision and should be based on who has been most influential in your decision to join eXp Realty. Sponsor selection is part of this legally binding Agreement.
A sponsor's sole requirement to qualify as a sponsor is selection by the joining agent as having been the most influential person in his or her decision to join eXp Realty. Sponsors are encouraged to support joining agents throughout the joining process and beyond, but are not required by eXp Realty to do so. If the selected sponsor has made representations or promises above and beyond referring a joining agent to eXp Realty, it is the sole responsibility of the joining agent to confirm the sponsor's ability and intent to deliver all additional support promised. eXp Realty is not responsible for enforcing agreements between agents made outside of this ICA.
If an agent removes his or her license from eXp Realty, terminates this ICA, and rejoins eXp Realty within 180 days from the date the agent’s license disassociated from eXp Realty, the previously named sponsor will continue to be named as that agent’s sponsor. However, after 180 days from the date agent’s license was disassociated from eXp Realty, the agent is free to rejoin eXp Realty and select a different sponsor.
If there is no individual who most influenced you to join eXp Realty, or you prefer not to select a sponsor for any reason, eXp Realty may be selected as the sponsor and will hold that position going forward.
THE FOLLOWING IS A SIGNIFICANT DECISION WHICH IS IRREVOCABLE. PLEASE PAUSE TO CONSIDER CAREFULLY WHO THE MOST INFLUENTIAL INDIVIDUAL IN YOUR DECISION TO JOIN EXP REALTY WAS. CHANGES IN SPONSORSHIP WILL NOT BE MADE.
IF THERE ARE ANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS ABOUT SPONSORSHIP, STOP NOW AND RETURN TO THE ICA ONCE THE SELECTION OF SPONSORSHIP IS FULLY UNDERSTOOD.
Contractor was most influenced to join eXp Realty by and selects this individual to be his or her eXp Realty sponsor. Contractor is aware the sponsor has no binding authority for Company and this ICA overrides any and all verbal or written representations made by the sponsor. Upon execution of this ICA, and pursuant to the terms and conditions herein, sponsor selection shall be permanent and may notchange.
CONTRACTOR EXPENSES TO CONDUCT INDEPENDENT BUSINESS
Contractor is responsible for all expenses related to being a real estate licensee unless otherwise provided in this Agreement.

For the duration of this ICA, Contractor shall maintain automobile insurance coverage with minimum liability limits of $100,000 per occurrence, $300,000 aggregate, and a minimum limit of $100,000 in property damage coverage.

The Company reserves the right to assess penalties, financial and otherwise, in accordance with the Company Policies and Procedures, against Contractors who fail or refuse to provide completed documentation as required by the Company or by any state, federal or local law in order to achieve and maintain compliance.
ERRORS & OMISSIONS COVERAGE
Company carries comprehensive errors and omissions (“E&O”) insurance coverage in each state in which the Company conducts business. This coverage provides varying degrees of protection against claims arising out of professional services. Even though the Company’s E&O coverage may typically cover such claims, Contractor agrees to defend, indemnify and hold Company harmless against any and all claims that may arise in connection with Contractor practicing real estate. In the event a Contractor receives notice of a lawsuit, a demand letter, a threat of a lawsuit, or a complaint before the Department of Real Estate or any REALTOR Association, Contractor shall notify the Broker immediately. Contractor agrees to actively cooperate and assist the Company, Broker and/or the insurance company in defending such claim or complaint until it is resolved.
Currently, the deductible on Company’s E&O policy is $25,000 (twenty-five thousand dollars) in most states, but is subject to a potential change at each renewal term. Where the deductible differs from the Company’s E&O policy deductible amount, a state-specific addendum will be executed with contractors of that state. Contractor shall be responsible for and shall reimburse Company up to $2,500 (two thousand five hundred dollars) incurred in the defense or resolution of any claim made against the Contractor and/or Company as a result of Contractor’s actions or inactions, regardless of whether or not the claim is eligible for insurance coverage. Even where Contractor does not believe the claim or cause of action has merit and/or does not believe any money should be expended in the defense or resolution of the matter, Contractor agrees in advance, by signing this Agreement, that he or she will reimburse Company up to $2,500 expended in defense or resolution of the matter within 30 days of receipt of a request for reimbursement from Company. Contractor may elect to have all or any portion of the reimbursable amount withheld from any commissions and/or revenue share payments due Contractor in lieu of making payment directly to Company. However, if Contractor does not reimburse the Company directly within the 30 day period then Company shall deduct the full amount due from any and all commissions and revenue share payments due Contractor until Company has been fully reimbursed.
Contractor acknowledges that if it is determined that Contractor acted fraudulently, grossly or recklessly negligent, or willfully, Contractor shall be responsible for the full amount of the damages and costs recovered against Company,
along with all costs of defense. This language in no way limits the liability of Contractor to Company.
INDEMNIFICATION AND HOLD HARMLESS
Contractor hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company, its owners, officers, affiliates, subsidiaries, agents or representatives from any and all claims which may arise out of, in the course of, or relate in any way to the Contractor’s performance of his or her duties hereunder. Additionally, Contractor acknowledges that if Contractor is subject to any non-compete agreement or covenant from a previous brokerage that Contractor will not violate that covenant or agreement or put the Company at risk of liability by violating it. Contractor shall indemnify, defend and hold Company harmless for any action or failure to act by Contractor, including, without limitation, any unauthorized representations and any failure to fulfill any of Contractor's responsibilities or obligations set forth herein.

The waiver of class action claims and proceedings is an essential and material term of this arbitration agreement in this section, and the parties agree that if it is determined that the waiver in this section is prohibited or invalid in its entirety in a case in which a class action, representative action or similar allegations have been made, then the remainder of this section shall also be void. If however, some, but not all, of the waivers are found to be unenforceable for any reason in a case in which class action, representative action or similar allegations have been made, the Contractor’s individual claims shall be decided in arbitration.

F. Confidentiality. The parties shall maintain the confidential nature of the arbitration proceeding and the Award, including the Hearing, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, or except as may be necessary in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy, a judicial challenge to an award or its enforcement, or unless otherwise required by law or judicial decision.

CONTRACTOR UNDERSTANDS ARBITRATION & WAIVER AGREEMENTS
Contractor represents and acknowledges that he or she understands the meaning and effect of the arbitration waiver and agreements in this Agreement and has been provided a reasonable time and opportunity to consult with his or her own legal counsel regarding the same.
This agreement is effective as of the date of the Contractor’s signature and shall remain in effect until its termination according to the TERMINATION section of this Agreement.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have caused this Agreement to be duly executed as follows:
Addendum A: Current Fee & Commission Schedule
Sign-Up Fee: $149, includes first month’s Cloud Brokerage Fee.
Cloud Brokerage Fee: $85 per month, includes access to all platforms.
Payment/Funding Source: Both a primary and a secondary/backup electronic funds transfer funding source, one of which must be an Automatic Clearing House (ACH) source, for payment of any and all recurring and non-recurring fees and amounts due from Contractor under this ICA must be on file and kept current. Unused portions of any fees previously paid will not be credited/prorated. Unpaid fees, charges, repayments, and any other amounts Contractor owes to Company can and will be deducted directly from any and all of Contractor’s pending and future earnings that would otherwise be payable to Contractor by eXp Realty.
Broker Review Fee: $25 per Transaction. All Transactions (defined below) will include a Broker Review Fee taken as a charge against the Contractor Dollar Amount (defined below) and shall be deducted from all closings, excluding all referrals, Broker Price Opinions (“BPO’s”), and leasing/rental commissions under $1,000 Gross Commission Income (defined below) to Company.
Risk Management Fee: $40 per Transaction. All Transactions will include a Risk Management Fee taken as a charge against the Contractor Dollar Amount and shall be deducted from all closings, excluding all referrals, BPO’s, and leasing/rental commissions under $1,000 Gross Commission Income to Company. The annual per eXp Agent cap on payment of Risk Management Fees for non-commercial Transactions is $500. Commercial Transactions do not have a Risk Management Fee cap.
All fees are non-refundable. Sales tax laws and regulations for each state determine if a fee is subject to sales tax. If applicable, sales tax is applied as a separate line item on Contractor’s statement.
COMMISSIONS ON TRANSACTIONS
Contractor shall be entitled to a commission on sales, rental/lease transactions, broker price opinions (“BPOs”) and referrals (collectively “Transactions”) as follows: income retained by the Company after referrals and concessions, but prior to commission split (“Gross Commission Income”), shall be split at the rate of 80% to Contractor (“Contractor Dollar Amount”) and 20% to Company (“Company Dollar”) on all Transactions closed by the Contractor.
Should any Transaction be subject to any state or local taxes, the 80/20 commission split will be calculated after the tax is deducted.
Personal Transactions: A Personal Transaction is any Transaction for which Contractor has an ownership interest in the subject property, whether through Contractor’s own name, a spouse’s name, or a business entity or revocable trust that is owned and/or controlled by Contractor and/or Contractor’s spouse.
• Personal Transactions will carry a $250 Transaction Fee, plus Broker Review and Risk Management Fees. For eXp Agents in the Mentor Program, please see the Mentor Program Agreement for rules and fees involved in a Personal Transaction.
• Personal Transaction commissions are not included in Revenue Share Plan calculations.
• Contractor may exempt up to three Personal Transactions per anniversary year.
• Contractor must be in Good Standing with the Company (current on fees and/or amounts owed, etc.).
• Contractor’s name, Contractor and/or Contractor’s Spouse’s business or trust name, or Contractor’sspouse’s name must be on the title.
The first day of the calendar month following the Join Date shall be known annually as the “Anniversary Date.” If the Company Dollar reaches $16,000 since the last Anniversary Date, the Contractor will be in a “Capped Status” until the next Anniversary Date. When Contractor is in a Capped Status, the Company will no longer retain 20% of the commission received by the Company from Contractor’s Transactions. Instead, the Company will assess a “Capped Status Transaction Fee” of $250 per Transaction, up to $5,000 per anniversary year, at which point the Capped Status Transaction Fee is reduced to $75 per Transaction for the remainder of Contractor’s anniversary year. Because the Capped Status Transaction Fee is "per Transaction" and not "per agent," Capped Status Transaction Fee are always split between agents on a transaction equal to the percentage of commission each agent earns. Revenue Share (see Addendum B) will not be paid out on Transactions consummated by Contractors in a Capped Status. Capped Status Transaction Fees will be in addition to all other deductions and fees authorized by this Agreement.
Similar to the Minimum Company Dollar Rule outlined below, Contractor shall pay the lesser of either the applicable Capped Status Transaction Fee ($250 or $75), or 20% of at least a 3% commission. This applies to both sides of a Transaction closed by an eXp Agent/Contractor in a Capped Status, both listing and buying, unless the eXp/Contractor Agent is in a Single Agent Dual Agency transaction. In Single Agent Dual Agency, the eXp Agent/Contractor is charged one Capped Status Transaction Fee per sale, not per side.
As stated above, Capped Status Transaction Fees are assessed on a per Transaction basis. In the case of multiple eXp Agents on a Transaction side, the appropriate transaction fee shall be split out in accordance with the percentages used in the applicable Disbursement Agreement.
Example : If Contractor A and Contractor B, both in a Capped Status, both represented the buyer in a sale and Contractor A received 60% of the commission and Contractor B received 40% of the commission, Contractor A would pay $150 (60% of the $250) of the Capped Status Transaction Fee and Contractor B would pay $100 (40% of the $250) of the Capped Status Transaction Fee.
In the example above, the $250 Capped Status Transaction Fee would be reduced to $75 once Contractor has paid a total of $5,000 in Capped Status Transaction Fees as described above. Each Contractor will pay the percentage of their respective Capped Status Transaction Fee amount, if any, if the Contractors have different applicable Capped Status Transaction Fee amounts.
MINIMUM COMPANY DOLLAR RULE
Company Dollar on listing-side sale commissions below 3% of the closed selling price will be subject to a minimum of $500 or the regular 20% split based on 3% of the closed selling price, whichever is lower.
Example A: 2% listing commission on $100,000 sale = $2,000. 20% = $400.
Minimum: 3% listing commission on $100,000 sale = $3,000. 20% = $600 Take the lower of $600 or
$500. Company Dollar = $500, Agent gets $1,500.
Example B: 2% listing commission on $60,000 sale = $1,200. 20% = $240.
Minimum: 3% listing commission on $60,000 sale = $1,800. 20% = $360 Take the lower of $360 or
$500. Company Dollar = $360, Agent gets $840.
NOTE: The Minimum Company Dollar Rule applies to listing transactions only, because the Contractor does not always have the opportunity to set or control the commission received on other transaction types. We DO NOT mandate any fees or percentages that a Contractor must charge to his or her clients.
Exempt: REO/HUD Listings and Short Sales - All REO/HUD and Short Sale Listings with a defined non-negotiable listing commission rate are exempt from the Minimum Company Dollar Rule and will be paid out according to the Contractor’s regular payment plan, per this Addendum A of the ICA.
Exempt: All Other Commission Types - The Minimum Company Dollar Rule only applies to listing-side sales commissions. Buyer-side commissions, residential leasing/rental commissions, referral commissions, fees for BPO’s, and any other fees received are not subject to the Minimum Company Dollar Rule.
All fees, deposits, or monetary amounts requested from a client or potential client by Contractor which are designed to retain the professional real estate services of Contractor (“Retainer Fee”) shall be paid directly to the Company and be subject to any applicable splits.
All payments billed to the agent from the Company for recurring payments, monthly Cloud Brokerage Fees, programs opted in, and any other fees billed or back-billed for reimbursement per written agreements and policies are due within 10 days from the date of billing.
Any billing that is more than 30 days past due will be assessed a minimum of $25 interest per month or the maximum amount allowed under state law.
If a Contractor’s account reaches 90 days past due/delinquent, the Company may terminate this Agreement pursuant to the Termination clause and any/all pending commission payments and/or revenue share payments shall be forfeited to the company
Contractor agrees to pay Company in full any past due fees upon demand. Company retains the right to deduct from payment of commissions, revenue share, funding source on file, or any other means necessary, any past due amounts of any kind, overpayments of commissions or revenue share and/or late fees assessed. Any unpaid balances shall be subject to collections and/or formal legal proceedings. Additionally, if Contractor has elected to participate in the 2015 Agent Equity Program as described in Addendum C, Contractor’s participation will be temporarily suspended until Company has been paid in full.
The Company reserves the right to adjust this fee schedule.
Addendum B: Sustainable Revenue Share Plan
eXp Realty has a Sustainable Revenue Share Plan (“Revenue Share Plan”) that all eXp Agents are automatically enrolled in which aims to pay out approximately 50% of Company Dollar to eXp Agents who help the Company’s sales grow by attracting fellow agents to join its ranks. As explained in Addendum A, Company Dollar is the percentage of GCI, usually 20%, that the Company retains from commission earned on a Transaction.
Adjusted Gross Commission Income: Adjusted Gross Commission Income (AGCI) is the GCI adjusted by a factor to achieve 50% of the Company Dollar in the overall monthly Revenue Share Plan.
Tier: The hierarchy of eXp Agents that are sponsored in succession beginning with the Contractor and each group of eXp Agents thereafter, as follows:
|●||Tier 1: the group of eXp Agents sponsored by the Contractor.|
|●||Tier 2: the group of eXp Agents sponsored by Tier 1 eXp Agents.|
|●||Tier 3: the group of eXp Agents sponsored by Tier 2 eXp Agents.|
|●||Tier 4: the group of eXp Agents sponsored by Tier 3 eXp Agents.|
|●||Tier 5: the group of eXp Agents sponsored by Tier 4 eXp Agents.|
|●||Tier 6: the group of eXp Agents sponsored by Tier 5 eXp Agents.|
|●||Tier 7: the group of eXp Agents sponsored by Tier 6 eXp Agents.|
Revenue Share Group: A Contractor’s Revenue Share Group consists of the eXp Agents he or she personally sponsors to join the sales ranks of the Company and those eXp Agents sponsored thereafter as a result of Contractor’s original sponsorship(s).
Qualifying Sale Transaction: A Qualifying Sale Transaction is a Transaction that earns Company Dollar of at least $200 and is not a Personal Transaction.
For Qualifying Sale Transactions that are the purchase or sale of real property (each a “Sale”) where one eXp Agent represents a Seller or Buyer, the Sale will be counted as a full credit Sale to the eXp Agent. For Qualifying Sale Transactions that are the purchase or sale of real property where multiple eXp Agents are involved in the representation of the same principal party, each side of the Sale will be counted to each eXp Agent in an amount that is proportionate to the distribution of the total Contractor Dollar Amount.
By way of illustration, if eXp Agent “A” receives 50% of the total Contractor Dollar Amount on a Sale, then the Sale will be counted as a one-half credit Sale for each of the eXp Agents involved and four of such Transactions would be needed to achieve two full credit Sales (within the prior rolling six full months to be classified as an FLQA).
eXpansion Share: eXpansion Share is revenue share generated from AGCI received from Qualifying Sale Transactions closed by a Contractor’s Revenue Share Group, and that is paid out to the Contractor in an amount that is based on the Tier group of the eXp Agent(s) who closed the Transaction(s). See the REVENUE SHARE PLAN CHART (“Revenue Share Chart”) below for a breakdown of the amount of eXpansion Share paid for each Tier group.
eXponential Share: eXponential Share is revenue share generated from AGCI received from Qualifying Sale Transactions closed by a Contractor’s Revenue Share Group, and that is paid out to the Contractor in an amount that is based on the Tier group of the eXp Agent(s) who closed the Transaction(s). In order to unlock eXponential Share
earning potential beyond Tier 1, the Contractor must have the minimum number of Front-Line Qualifying Active agents (as defined below). See the REVENUE SHARE PLAN CHART (“Revenue Share Chart”) below for a breakdown of the amount of eXponential Share paid for each Tier.
Front-Line Qualifying Active (FLQA): A Front-Line Qualifying Active agent is a licensed agent who has been personally sponsored into eXp Realty and that has been active and productive with the Company during the prior rolling six- month period by closing: 1) a minimum of two full credit Sales, or the equivalent; or 2) $5,000 in Gross Commission Income. All FLQA agents are Tier 1 eXp Agents that have been directly sponsored by the Contractor; however, not all Tier 1 eXp Agents sponsored by Contractor are FLQA Agents.
Revenue Share Eligible: For a Contractor to remain eligible to collect revenue share (also referred to as “Revenue Share Eligibility”), the Contractor must meet the following requirements:
1. Be in Good Standing;
2. Be current on any of the fees due such as Cloud Brokerage Fee, etc., and not be past due on other outstanding invoices with the Company; and
3. Be current in all association fees, MLS dues and/or mandatory market-based fees, if applicable.
Revenue Share Grace Period: The Revenue Share Grace Period (also referred to as the “Grace Period”) is a one hundred eighty (180) day period that begins with the day following the date that an eXp Agent satisfies the Revenue Share Grace Period Productivity Requirement, during which time the eXp Agent will be classified as an FLQA agent for his or her sponsor.
Revenue Share Grace Period Productivity Requirement: A new eXp Agent satisfies the Revenue Share Grace Period Productivity Requirement (also referred to as the “Productivity Requirement”) when he/she closes either 1) one full credit Sale, or 2) $5,000 in Gross Commission Income.
Vested: Subject to certain qualifications and conditions, a Contractor that is Vested in the Revenue Share Plan continues to receive benefits payable thereunder.
Affiliate with a competitor of Company: For purposes hereof, “affiliates with a competitor of the Company” shall mean that the Contractor or Contractor’s spouse or partner is an individual proprietor, partner, stockholder, officer, employee, director, consultant, agent, joint venturer, investor, lender, or in any other capacity, alone or in association with others, owning, managing, operating, controlling or participating in the ownership, management, operation or control of, or working for or permitting the use of his or her name by, a residential real estate brokerage other than eXp Realty.
Straw Agent: Straw Agents are agents who are not engaged in the business of selling real estate or engaged in the process of attracting other productive agents to join the Company and help grow company sales.
[This Space Intentionally Left Blank.]
REVENUE SHARE EXPLAINED
The Revenue Share Plan is paid out as a percentage of AGCI which is the GCI adjusted by a factor and calculated each month in an effort to achieve and pay out 50% of Company Dollar in the overall monthly Revenue Share Plan in the form of revenue share. Actual payouts on individual Transactions can be higher or lower than the 50% payout target depending on how many FLQAs are counted on each Tier.
As a Contractor encourages fellow active and productive agents to join the ranks of the Company and the Contractor is named as the sponsor of those new eXp Agents, the Contractor will begin earning the standard Tier 1 3.5% of AGCI revenue share amount on the Qualifying Sale Transactions of the Contractor’s Tier 1 group of eXp Agents. As the Contractor’s Tier 1 group of eXp Agents (Contractor’s direct sponsored agents) become sponsors themselves of more new eXp Agents, each new eXp Agent added to the Contractor’s Revenue Share Group can potentially expand and unlock the Contractor’s ability to earn more revenue share in two different ways: 1) eXpansion Share; and 2) eXponential Share.
Illustration: Contractor directly sponsors 15 new eXp Agents (Tier 1 group), who in turn sponsor 25 more new eXp Agents (Tier 2), who in turn sponsor 40 more new eXp Agents (Tier 3), who in turn sponsor 30 more new eXp Agents (Tier 4). Of the Tier 1 group of eXp Agents, 10 are classified as FLQA which unlocks Tiers 2 & 3 of eXponential Share for the Contractor. Contractor will now earn:
1. 3.5% of AGCI in eXponential Share on all Qualifying Sale Transactions of the 15 Tier 1 group of eXp Agents; and
2. 0.2% in eXpansion Share + 3.8% in eXponential Share, for a total of 4% of AGCI on all Qualifying Sale Transactions of the 25 Tier 2 group of eXp Agents; and
3. 0.1% in eXpansion Share + 2.4% in eXponential Share, for a total of 2.5% of AGCI on all Qualifying Sale Transactions of the 40 Tier 3 group of eXp Agents; and
4. 0.1% of AGCI in eXpansion Share on all Qualifying Sale Transactions of the 30 Tier 4 group of eXp Agents.
For all Company Dollar earned from Qualifying Sale Transactions of each of the eXp Agents in Contractor’s Tier groups, the Contractor will receive revenue share from each of those Qualifying Sale Transactions as long as the eXp Agent that closed the Transaction is not in a Capped Status. This is because there is no Company Dollar from which to pay out revenue share that is retained from the Transactions of an agent who is in a Capped Status.
The Revenue Share Plan pays out a percentage of AGCI per Qualifying Sale Transaction of the Contractor’s Revenue Share Group and pays in the calendar month following the closing of the Qualifying Sale Transactions by the Contractor’s Revenue Share Group.
When an eXp Agent who is not Vested leaves the Company, the position that the departing agent held within other sponsors’ Revenue Share Groups immediately becomes a Company position. The revenue share structure does not compress or roll up.
The Revenue Share Grace Period is available only for new eXp Agents who have Join Dates of March 1, 2020 or later. For eXp Agents with a Join Date that falls on or in between September 3, 2019 through February 29, 2020, will continue to be classified as an FLQA agent for their sponsor for the first one hundred and eighty (180) days from their respective Join Date, after which the FLQA qualification requirements will apply
The Revenue Share Plan is funded entirely by the percentage of the Gross Commission Income that the Company retains on closed Transactions. Therefore, no revenue share dollars are paid out on any Transaction where the Contractor who consummated the Transaction was in Capped Status, as that term is defined in the ICA, or where no Company Dollar is earned.
Qualifications To Receive Revenue Share
In order to be qualified to receive revenue share under both the eXpansion Share and the eXponential Share Contractor must be Revenue Share Eligible on the date when a Qualifying Sale Transaction closes, and Contractor’s license must be active and affiliated with eXp Realty in every state that Contractor engages in activities requiring a real estate license.
Manipulating Revenue Share Plan Prohibited
Contractor agrees that he or she will not attempt to manipulate the Revenue Share Plan by engaging in the practice of sponsoring Straw Agents. Additionally, Contractor shall not add any agent(s)’s name to transaction documentation who was not a true party to the Transaction solely for the purpose of artificially qualifying that eXp Agent as an FLQA. The Company shall have the right and sole discretion to determine who is considered a Straw Agent, and further reserves the right to terminate Contractors who are, in the sole discretion of the Company, determined to be Straw Agents and which would reduce the number of Front-Line Active Agents and/or Front-Line Qualifying Active Agents that an eXp Agent has directly caused to join Company.
The Company will also notify Contractor that it has released the licenses of the eXp Agent(s) that it believes are Straw Agents and review the recruiting practices of Contractor with Contractor.
If, after reviewing the recruiting practices with Contractor, Contractor continues to engage in, or appears to be engaged in, the practice of manipulating the Revenue Share Plan, Contractor may be restricted from sponsoring agents and/or released from the Company.
Revenue Share Vesting Policy
To qualify for revenue share vesting, Contractor must satisfy the following conditions: 1) hold a current real estate license and be authorized to receive commissions; 2) be affiliated with the Company as a Contractor/real estate agent for not less than 36 consecutive months; and 3) and meet all requirements under the Revenue Share Eligible definition
above for not less than 36 consecutive months.
Subject to meeting the qualification requirements above, the Contractor shall be considered Vested in the Revenue Share Plan’s eXpansion Share and will continue to receive the benefits provided under the eXpansion Share even after Contractor disassociates from the Company. The Contractor's Vesting in the Revenue Share Plan’s eXponential Share shall continue, as long as Contractor’s real estate license is actively associated with a brokerage that is an affiliate of the Company and the Contractor does not Affiliate with a competitor of the Company.
Vested agents that are retired need to qualify in the jurisdiction they are domiciled in order to receive revenue share. In many states, revenue share is considered a distribution of real estate commission in which case one would need an active real estate license to continue to receive revenue share payments.
Incapacitation Or Death of an eXp Agent
In the event that Contractor is unable to carry out his or her work as a real estate agent and unable to engage in the process of attracting and supporting other productive agents into the Company due to Contractor’s permanent incapacity or death, Contractor shall automatically be considered Vested in the Revenue Share Plan regardless of whether Contractor has met the second and third requirements to qualify for revenue share vesting as explained above. Any heir, legal representative or guardian of Contractor who is legally authorized to act on Contractor's behalf or Contractor's estate's behalf, may be substituted as the agent of record for Contractor in the Company Revenue Share Plan. For a plan of substitution to be approved, the proposed substitute must meet the following conditions, in the order in which they are listed: 1) be approved by the Company and the Company's Broker for the state where the substituting contractor will be licensed; 2) submit a written legal opinion from a duly licensed attorney in substitute’s state of licensing that states that the plan of substitution contemplated complies with all applicable local, state and federal laws, rules and regulations; and 3) complete all application and onboarding steps to properly join Company as a duly licensed real estate agent within 12 months of the date of permanent incapacitation or death of Contractor. If the plan of substitution is approved and the substitute properly joins Company, the terms and conditions of the Revenue Share Vesting Policy shall then apply to the approved substitute.
Company is not required to approve a plan of substitution for a Contractor who was not in Good Standing with Company prior to the Contractor's permanent incapacitation or death.
The stated revenue share payout structure may be modified to allow the Company to better compete, attract and retain agents as well as to maintain a base level of profitability. Should a change to this Addendum B be made, Contractor shall be notified in accordance with contract revisions/modification section of the ICA.
The terms and conditions of this policy, or to the eXp Sustainable Revenue Share Plan, are subject to modification as determined by the Executive Management of the Company and/or the Board of Directors of eXp World Holdings, Inc. An explanation about revenue sharing calculations as well as other aspects of the Revenue Share Plan can be obtained by visiting the Company’s Accounting Team in eXp World. The Company’s long-term goal is to payout 50% of Company Dollar through the Sustainable Revenue Share System. Any modification to the Revenue Share model does not require future signatures from a recipient in order for a recipient to continue to receive revenue share under any new terms.
**In acknowledgment of certain contributions made to the Company’s growth and infrastructure, the Company reserves the right to designate
certain managing brokers, executives and key personnel as being in Good Standing with the Company notwithstanding any discrepancies that may exist from time to time between their own personal production and the criteria set forth in the ICA. In addition, such personnel may be deemed to be in Good Standing even though no monthly Cloud Brokerage Fee is assessed against such personnel.

EXP WORLD HOLDINGS, INC.
Insider Trading Policy for Employees, Agents and Contractors
Adopted as of November 18, 2016
The Board of Directors of eXp World Holdings, Inc., or the Company, has adopted this Insider Trading Policy, most recently amended as of the date above, for our employees, agents and contractors. Federal and state securities laws prohibit the purchase or sale of a company’s securities by persons who are aware of material information about that company that is not generally known or available to the public. Likewise, these laws prohibit persons who are aware of such material nonpublic information from disclosing this information to others who may trade.
This Policy is designed to prevent insider trading (or allegations of insider trading) and to protect the Company’s reputation for integrity and ethical conduct. It is your obligation to understand and comply with this Policy. Should you have any questions regarding this Policy, please submit them in writing to ***@***, and they will be reviewed by the Company’s Compliance Officer.
Statement of Policy
No Trading on Inside Information. You may not trade in the securities of the Company directly or through family members or other persons or entities, if you are aware of material nonpublic information relating to the Company. In other words, you may not buy or sell the Company’s stock, or help others to do so, on the basis of “inside information.” “Inside information” consists of information that is both “material” and “nonpublic,” as further explained in the bullets below.
• Information is considered “material” if it could reasonably be expected to affect the price of a stock, orwould be considered important in determining whether or not to buy or sell the stock.
Examples of “material” information include, but are not limited to:
○ projections of future earnings or losses, or other earnings guidance;
○ earnings or operating results that are different from the expectations of the investmentcommunity;
○ a pending or proposed merger, acquisition or an acquisition or disposition of significantassets;
○ the Company’s stock becoming listed on a national exchange;
○ a new business line or product available from the Company; or
○ a change in senior management.
• Information is “nonpublic” if it is not generally known or available to the public.
○ One common misconception is that material information loses its “nonpublic” status as soon asa press release is issued disclosing the information.
○ In fact, information is considered to be available to the public only when it has been released broadly to the marketplace (such as by a press release or an SEC filing) and the investing public has had time to absorb the information fully.
○ As a general rule, information is considered nonpublic until the close of the second full trading day after the information is released.
Similarly, you may not trade in the securities of any other company if you are aware of material nonpublic information about the other company that you obtained in the course of your employment or business affiliation with the Company.
No Tipping. Similarly, you may not pass material nonpublic information on to others or recommend to others the purchase or sale of any securities when you are aware of such information. This practice, known as “tipping,” also violates the securities laws and can result in the same civil and criminal penalties that apply to insider trading, even though you did not trade and did not gain any benefit from the other person’s trading.
No Assisting Others. You may not assist anyone in engaging in any activity prohibited by this Policy.
No Exception for Hardship. The existence of a personal financial emergency or hardship does not excuse you from compliance with this Policy.
No Exception for Transactions Unrelated to Inside Information. It does not matter that you may have decided to engage in a transaction before becoming aware of material nonpublic information or that the material nonpublic information did not affect your decision to engage in the transaction. It is also irrelevant that publicly disclosed information about the Company might, even aside from the material nonpublic information, provide a sufficient basis for engaging in the transaction.
Penalties for Non-Compliance
It is important that you understand the breadth of activities that constitute illegal insider trading and the consequences, which can be severe. Both the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or the SEC, and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, together with the Department of Justice, pursue insider trading violations vigorously. For example, cases have been prosecuted successfully against trading by employees through foreign accounts, trading by family members and friends, and trading involving only a small number of shares.
Potential penalties for insider trading violations include imprisonment, criminal fines and civil fines of up to three times the profit gained or loss avoided. Failure to comply with this Policy may also subject you to Company-imposed sanctions, including dismissal, whether or not your failure to comply with this Policy results in a violation of law.
Scope of Policy
Persons Covered. As an employee, agent or contractor of the Company or any of its subsidiaries, this Policy applies to you. The same restrictions that apply to you also apply to:
• your family members who reside with you;
• anyone else who lives in your household;
• any family members who do not live in your household but whose transactions in Company securities are directed by you or are subject to your influence or control (such as parents or children who consult with you before they trade in Company securities); and
• any entities that you influence or control, including any corporations, partnerships or trusts.
You are responsible for making sure that the purchase or sale of any security covered by this Policy by any such person complies with this Policy. You should make them aware of the need to confer with you before they trade in securities covered by this Policy.
Companies Covered. The prohibition on insider trading in this Policy is not limited to trading in the Company’s own securities. It includes trading in the securities of other firms, such as companies and firms with which the Company may be negotiating major transactions, such as an acquisition, investment or sale.
Limited Exceptions. The only exceptions to this Policy’s prohibitions of trading in securities as outlined above are the following:
• Stock Option Exercises. Exercises in stock options granted under the Company's equity compensation plans for cash; however, this exception does not include the subsequent sale of the shares acquired pursuant to the exercise of a stock option; and
• Bona Fide Gifts. Bona fide gifts of securities are not deemed to be transactions for the purposes of this Policy. Whether a gift is truly bona fide will depend on the circumstances surrounding a specific gift. The more unrelated the donee is to the donor, the more likely the gift would be considered “bona fide” and not a “transaction.” For example, gifts to charities, churches or non-profit organizations would generally not be deemed to be “transactions.” However, gifts to dependent children followed by a sale of the“gifted securities” in close proximity to the time of the gift may imply some economic benefit to the donor and, therefore, may be deemed to be a “transaction” and not a “bona fide gift.”
Blackout Periods and Trading Windows
If your position is described in Appendix 1 to the Insider Trading Policy, that means you regularly learn about information that is important to the Company and you are subject to this provision regarding Blackout Periods. If your position is described in Appendix 1, you may only buy or sell the Company’s stock within certain windows of time during each calendar year. Such periods of the year in which you may trade, so long as you do not possess inside information at the time, are referred to as “Open Windows.” On the other hand, if you are subject to this provision, you may not buy and sell the Company’s stock during “Blackout Periods,” which generally correspond to times of the year when important information about the Company’s financial performance is being prepared prior to its publication to the public. Open Windows and Blackout Periods may be amended from time to time by the Compliance Officer or the Company’s Board. Currently, Blackout Periods and Open Windows occur as follows:
In addition, the Company, through the Compliance Officer (as defined below), may authorize longer or additional trading windows in which buying, selling or otherwise effecting transactions in the Company’s securities shall be permitted. Similarly, the Company, through the Compliance Officer, may impose special black-out periods during which certain persons will be prohibited from buying, selling or otherwise effecting transactions in any stock or other securities of the Company or derivative securities thereof, even though the trading window would otherwise be open. If a special black-out period is imposed, the Company will notify affected individuals, who should thereafter not engage in any transaction involving the purchase or sale of the Company’s securities and should not disclose to others the fact of such suspension of trading.
It should be noted that even during the Open Window, if you possess material nonpublic information, you should not engage in any transactions in the Company’s securities until the end of the second trading day following the date on which such information is publicly disclosed, regardless of anything else in this Policy.
Maintaining the confidentiality of Company information is essential for competitive, security and other business reasons, as well as to comply with securities laws. You should treat all information you learn about the Company or its business plans in connection with your employment as confidential and proprietary to the Company. Employees, agents and contractors should treat all corporate information with discretion and discuss confidential data only with those Company employees who have a right and a need to know. In particular, do not discuss confidential information with relatives, friends or acquaintances. Inadvertent disclosure of confidential or inside information may expose the Company and you to significant risk of investigation and litigation.
The timing and nature of the Company’s disclosure of material information to outsiders is subject to legal rules, the breach of which could result in substantial liability to you, the Company and its management. Accordingly, it is important that responses to inquiries about the Company by the press, investment analysts or others in the financial community be made on the Company’s behalf only through authorized individuals.
Social Media and Internet Postings
For purposes hereof, all social media comments or postings, or comments, blog posts, wikis and other forms of online communication, including any website, social media platforms, Internet-based application, or Internet message boards or chat rooms (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, YouTube, blogs, Wikis such as Wikipedia and any other site where text can be posted and Yahoo Discussion Groups) are referred to as “Internet postings.”
Company Postings. All Internet postings made on behalf of the Company must be approved by an Executive Officer and otherwise be made in compliance with any related Company policy that may be in effect from time to time.
Personal Postings. In your personal Internet postings or other online activity, you should never disclose any information that is confidential to the Company (or to any third party) that has been disclosed to the Company or to you in your capacity as an employee or representative of the Company. If you comment in a personal posting on any aspect of the company’s business or any policy issue in which the company is involved and in which you have responsibility, you must clearly identify yourself as a Company employee in your postings or blog site(s) and include a disclaimer that the views are your own and not those of the Company. Because you are legally responsible for your postings, you may be subject to liability if your personal posts are found defamatory, harassing, or in violation of any other applicable law. You may also be liable if you make postings which include confidential or copyrighted information (music, videos, text, etc.) belonging to third parties.
In addition to the foregoing, the Company may request that you avoid certain subjects or withdraw certain posts if it
believes that doing so will help ensure compliance with applicable laws, including the SEC’s regulations. For example, in your personal Internet postings, you should not comment on the potential or projected growth of the Company’s stock, or encourage people to buy the stock or join the Company based on the stock’s growth. You should not discuss the agent equity program or similar stock incentives the Company offers in any detail, but you should merely point out that such a program or incentives exist, and direct potential agents to Company approved resources or publicly available information. The Company reserves the right to remove any posted comment on Company-operated site that is not appropriate for the topic discussed or uses inappropriate language.
This Policy continues to apply to your transactions in Company securities even after you have separated from service with the Company or a subsidiary. If you are aware of material nonpublic information when your employment or service relationship terminates, you may not trade in Company securities until that information has become public or is no longer material.
The Company’s General Counsel, or another individual appointed by the Board, if applicable, shall serve as the Insider Trading Compliance Officer (the “Compliance Officer”). The duties of the Compliance Officer shall include, but not be limited to, the following:
• Circulating the Policy (and/or a summary thereof) to all employees, including Section 16 reporting persons, on an annual basis and ensuring that the Company obtain and maintain written acknowledgments from employees that they have read the policy.
• Overseeing the responses to questions from individual employees.
• Ensuring that relevant files on policy compliance and implementation are maintained.
You should remember that the ultimate responsibility for adhering to this Policy and avoiding improper trading rests with you. As an insider of the Company, this may mean that, from time to time, you have to forego a proposed transaction in the Company’s securities even if you planned to make the transaction before learning of material nonpublic information and even though you believe you may suffer an economic loss or forego anticipated profit by waiting. Trading in the Company’s securities during the trading window should not be considered a “safe harbor,” and all directors, officers and other persons should use good judgment at all times. If you violate this Policy, the Company may take disciplinary action against you up to and including dismissal.
Your compliance with this Policy is of the utmost importance both for you and for the Company. The Board, a Board Committee or an employee designated by the Board (e.g. the Compliance Officer), shall be responsible for the administration of this Policy. All determinations and interpretations by the Board or its designee shall be final and not subject to further review. Please do not try to resolve uncertainties on your own, as the rules relating to insider trading are often complex and not always intuitive while violations entail severe consequences.
All persons covered by this policy must certify their understanding of, and intent to comply with this Policy. A copy of the certification that you must sign is enclosed with this Policy.
Persons subject to trading window restrictions include:
• All members of the Board of Directors of the Company;
• All officers of the Company;
• All employees/contractors who report into the Company’s Finance and Accounting departments;
• All employees/contractors working on press release, investor relations, financial results, SEC filings, and news or announcements related to similar events;
• All employees/contractors working in the Company’s legal department;
• Any assistant to any of the foregoing;
• Any other employees or individuals designated from time to time by the Compliance Officer or the Board of Directors.
