2021 OMNIBUS INCENTIVE PLAN
(Incentive Stock Option or Nonstatutory Stock Option)
Pursuant to your Stock Option Grant Notice (Grant Notice) and this Option Agreement (this Option Agreement), Sharecare, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the Company) has granted you an option under its 2021 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the Plan) to purchase the number of shares of Stock indicated in your Grant Notice at the exercise price indicated in your Grant Notice. The option is granted to you effective as of the date of grant set forth in the Grant Notice (the Date of Grant). If there is any conflict between the terms in the Grant Notice, Exhibit 1 to the Grant Notice, this Option Agreement, the Plan and the Notice of Exercise, then such conflict shall be resolved by giving such documents precedence in the following order: Exhibit 1, the Grant Notice, this Option Agreement, the Plan and then the Notice of Exercise. Capitalized terms not explicitly defined in this Option Agreement or in the Grant Notice but defined in the Plan will have the same definitions as in the Plan.
The details of your option, in addition to those set forth in the Grant Notice and the Plan, are as follows:
Vesting; No Shareholder Rights
Your option will vest as provided in your Grant Notice. Vesting will cease upon the termination of your Employment with the Company or any of its subsidiaries, except as may be provided otherwise in the Vesting Schedule in Exhibit 1 to your Grant Notice or in an employment or other written agreement between you and the Company. You will not be deemed to be the holder of, or have any of the rights of a stockholder with respect to, your option unless and until the option vests and you exercise the option in accordance with this Option Agreement and the Administrator has issued and delivered Stock to you and your name shall have been entered as a stockholder of record on the books of the Company.
Number of Shares and Exercise Price
The number of shares of Stock subject to your option and your exercise price per share are set forth in your Grant Notice and will be adjusted in the event of changes in capital structure and similar events as provided in Section 7 of the Plan.
Exercise Restriction for Non-Exempt Employees
If you are an employee eligible for overtime compensation under the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, as amended (that is, a Non-Exempt Employee), except as provided below, you may not exercise your option until you have completed at least six months of service measured from the Date of Grant, even if you have already been an employee of the Company for more than six months. Consistent with the provisions of the Worker Economic Opportunity Act, you may exercise your option as to any vested portion prior to such six month anniversary in the case of (a) your death or Disability, (b) a Covered Transaction or (c) your termination of service on your retirement (as defined in the Companys benefit plans).
Method of Payment
You must pay the full amount of the exercise price for the shares you wish to exercise. You may pay the exercise price in cash or by check payable to the Company or in any other manner permitted by your Grant Notice, which may include one or more of the following, if permitted by the Administrator and if legally permissible:
By the delivery of previously acquired unrestricted shares of Stock (through actual delivery or by constructive delivery through attestation of ownership, subject to such rules as the Administrator may prescribe) that have a Fair Market Value equal to the exercise price;
By withholding unrestricted shares of Stock otherwise deliverable upon exercise that have a Fair Market Value equal to the exercise price; or
Through a broker-assisted cashless exercise program acceptable to the Administrator.
You may be required to pay any remaining balance of the aggregate exercise price not satisfied by (a), (b) or (c) above in cash or other permitted form of payment. Shares of Stock will no longer be outstanding under your option and will not be exercisable thereafter if those shares (i) are used to pay the exercise price pursuant to (b) above, (ii) are delivered to you as a result of such exercise, or (iii) are withheld to satisfy your tax withholding obligations.
You may exercise your option only for whole Common Shares.
Securities Law Compliance
In no event may you exercise your option unless the shares of Stock issuable upon exercise are then registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act), and applicable state securities law or, if not registered, the Administrator has determined that your exercise and the issuance of the shares would be exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The exercise of your option also must comply with all other applicable laws and regulations governing your option, including the requirements of any stock exchange on which the Stock may be listed, and you may not exercise your option if the Administrator determines that such exercise would not be in material compliance with such laws, regulations and listing requirements.
You may not exercise your option before the Date of Grant or after the Expiration Date indicated in the Grant Notice. Except as may be provided otherwise in the Vesting Schedule in Exhibit 1 to your Grant Notice or in an employment or other written agreement between you and the Company, the term of your option expires (subject to the provisions of Section 6(b)(4) of the Plan in the event that your Option is an ISO and you, on the Date of Grant, own shares representing more than 10% of the combined voting power of the Company) upon the earliest of the following:
immediately upon the termination of your Employment for Cause;
three months after the termination of your Employment for any reason other than Cause, your Disability or your death; provided, however, that if (i) you are a Non-Exempt Employee, (ii) your Employment terminates within six months after the Date of Grant, and (iii) you have vested in a portion of your option at the time of your termination of
|Employment, your option will not expire until the earlier of (x) the later of (A) the date that is seven months after the Date of Grant, and (B) the date that is three months after the termination of your service with the Company, and (y) the Expiration Date;|
12 months after the termination of your Employment due to your death or Disability;
the Expiration Date indicated in your Grant Notice; or
the day before the 10th anniversary of the Date of Grant.
If your option is an ISO, note that to obtain the federal income tax advantages associated with an ISO, the Code requires that at all times beginning on the Date of Grant and ending on the day three months before the date of your options exercise, you must be an employee of the Company or a subsidiary, except in the event of your death or Disability. The Administrator has provided for extended exercisability of your option under certain circumstances for your benefit but cannot guarantee that your option will necessarily be treated as an ISO if you continue to provide services to the Company or a subsidiary as a consultant or director after your Employment terminates or if you otherwise exercise your option more than three months after the date your Employment terminates.
You may exercise the vested portion of your option during its term by (i) delivering a Notice of Exercise (in a form designated by the Administrator) or completing such other documents and/or procedures designated by the Administrator for exercise and (ii) paying the exercise price and any applicable withholding taxes to the Company, stock plan administrator, or such other person as the Administrator may designate, together with such additional documents as the Administrator may then require.
By exercising your option you agree that, as a condition to any exercise of your option, the Administrator may require you, and you hereby agree, to enter into an arrangement providing for the payment by you to the Company of any tax withholding obligation of the Company arising by reason of (i) the exercise of your option, or (ii) the disposition of Stock acquired upon such exercise.
If your option is an ISO, by exercising your option you agree that you will notify the Administrator in writing within 15 days after the date of any disposition of any of the shares of the Stock issued upon exercise of your option that occurs within two years after the Date of Grant or within one year after such shares of Stock are transferred upon exercise of your option.
Your option is not assignable or transferable, except by will or by the laws of descent and distribution, and is exercisable during your life only by you. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, your option may not be sold, assigned, transferred or otherwise disposed of, or pledged or hypothecated in any manner (whether by operation of law or otherwise), and shall not be subject to execution, attachment or other process. Any assignment, transfer, sale, pledge, hypothecation or other disposition of your option or any attempt to make any such levy of execution, attachment or other process will cause your option to terminate immediately.
Option not a Service Contract
Your option is not an employment or service contract, and nothing in your option will be deemed to create in any way whatsoever any obligation on your part to continue in the employ or service of the Company or any affiliate, or of the Company or an affiliate to continue your employment or service. In addition, nothing in your option will obligate the Company or any affiliate, their respective stockholders, boards of directors, officers or employees to continue any relationship that you might have as a member of the Companys Board or a consultant for the Company or an affiliate.
At the time you exercise your option, in whole or in part, and at any time thereafter as requested by the Administrator, you hereby agree to make adequate provision for any sums required to satisfy the federal, state, local and foreign tax withholding obligations of the Company or an affiliate, if any, which arise in connection with the exercise of your option. The Administrator, in its sole discretion, may (but is not required to) hold back shares of Stock otherwise issuable on exercise of the option or permit you to tender previously-owned shares of Stock in satisfaction of tax or other withholding requirements (but not in excess of the maximum withholding amount consistent with the option being subject to equity accounting treatment under the Accounting Rules). In addition, the Administrator may (but is not required to), to the extent permitted by law, deduct any such tax and other withholding amounts from any payment of any kind otherwise due to you from the Company or any parent or subsidiary of the Company.
The Administrator and the Company assume no responsibility for individual income taxes, penalties or interest related to grant or exercise of any option. Neither the Administrator, the Company nor any affiliate makes any representation or undertaking regarding the treatment of any tax withholding in connection with the grant or exercise of any option. You should consult with your personal tax advisor regarding the tax ramifications, if any, which result from receipt of the option, the subsequent issuance, if any, of Stock on exercise of the option, and subsequent disposition of any such Stock. You acknowledge that the Administrator or the Company may be required to withhold federal, state and/or local taxes in connection with the exercise of the option. You may not exercise your option unless the tax withholding obligations of the Company and/or any affiliate are satisfied. Accordingly, you may not be able to exercise your option when desired even though your option is vested, and the Administrator will have no obligation to issue a certificate for such Stock or release such Stock from any escrow provided for herein, if applicable, unless such obligations in this Section 11 are satisfied.
Recovery of Compensation
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the Stock issued under this Agreement and all amounts that may be received by you in connection with any disposition of any such Stock shall be subject to applicable recoupment, clawback and similar provisions under law, as well as any recoupment, clawback and similar policies of the Company that may be adopted at any time and from time to time in accordance with Section 6(a)(5) of the Plan.
Section 409A; Tax Consequences
It is the Administrators and the Companys intent that this option (and the related agreements) be exempt from Section 409A of the Code to the extent applicable, and that this Option Agreement be administered accordingly. You hereby agree that the Administrator and the Company do not have a duty to design or administer the Plan or its other compensation programs in a manner that minimizes your tax liabilities. You will not make any claim against the Administrator, the Company, or any of its officers, directors, employees or affiliates related to tax liabilities arising from your option or your other compensation.
Any notices provided for in your option or the Plan will be given in writing and will be deemed effectively given upon receipt. The Administrator may, in its sole discretion, decide to deliver any documents related to participation in the Plan and this option by electronic means or to request your consent to participate in the Plan by electronic means. By accepting this option, you consent to receive such documents by electronic delivery and to participate in the Plan through an on-line or electronic system established and maintained by the Administrator or another third party designated by the Administrator.
In the event that the Administrator provides you (or anyone acting on your behalf) with summary or other information concerning, including or otherwise relating to your rights or benefits under this Option Agreement (including, without limitation, the option and any exercise thereof), such summary or other information shall in all cases be qualified in its entirety by Exhibit 1, the Grant Notice, this Option Agreement, the Plan and the Notice of Exercise and, unless it explicitly states otherwise and is signed by an officer of the Company, shall not constitute an amendment or other modification hereto.
You understand, acknowledge, agree and hereby stipulate that: (a) you are executing this Option Agreement voluntarily and without any duress or undue influence by the Company or anyone else; (b) the option is intended to be consideration in exchange for the promises and covenants set forth in this Option Agreement; (c) you have carefully read, considered and understand all of the provisions of this Option Agreement, the Plan and the Companys policies reflected in this Option Agreement, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged; (d) you have asked any questions needed for you to understand the terms, consequences and binding effect of this Option Agreement and you fully understand them; (e) you were provided an opportunity to seek the advice of an attorney and/or a tax professional of your choice before accepting this option and (f) the obligations and restrictions set forth in this Option Agreement are fair and reasonable.
