Exhibit 10.67
Restricted Stock Agreement
Flowserve Corporation
Equity and Incentive Compensation Plan
     This Restricted Stock Agreement (the “Agreement”) is made and entered into by and between Flowserve Corporation, a New York corporation (the “Company”) and «First_Name» «Last_Name» (the “Participant”) as of                     , 20___(the “Date of Grant”). All capitalized terms used in this Agreement and not otherwise defined herein have the meanings given to such terms in the Plan (defined below).
     WHEREAS, the Company has adopted the Flowserve Corporation Equity and Incentive Compensation Plan (the “Plan”) to strengthen the ability of the Company to attract, motivate and retain Employees and Outside Directors who possess superior capabilities and to encourage such persons to have a proprietary interest in the Company.
     WHEREAS, the Organization and Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company believes that the grant of Restricted Stock to the Participant as described herein is consistent with the stated purposes for which the Plan was adopted.
     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and conditions hereafter set forth and for other good and valuable consideration, the Company and the Participant agree as follows:
  1.   Restricted Stock
               In order to encourage the Participant’s contribution to the successful performance of the Company, and in consideration of the covenants and promises of the Participant herein contained, the Company hereby grants to the Participant as of the Date of Grant, a Restricted Stock Award of «M___of_Shares_Granted» shares of Common Stock, subject to the conditions and restrictions set forth below and in the Plan (the “Restricted Stock”).
  2.   Restrictions on Transfer Before Vesting
  (a)   The Restricted Stock will be transferred of record to the Participant and a certificate or certificates representing said Restricted Stock will be issued in the name of the Participant immediately upon the execution of this Agreement. Each of the Restricted Stock certificates will bear a legend as provided by the Company, conspicuously referring to the terms, conditions and restrictions as permitted under Section 15.9 of the Plan. The Company either shall retain custody of such Restricted Stock certificate(s) prior to vesting (the “Restriction Period”) or require the Participant to enter into an escrow arrangement under which the Restricted Stock certificate(s) will be held by an escrow agent. Certificates for shares of Common Stock free of restriction under this Agreement and the Plan shall be delivered to the Participant promptly after, and only after, the Restriction Period expires without forfeiture in respect of the shares of Common Stock. The delivery of any shares of Restricted Stock pursuant to this Agreement is subject to the provisions of Paragraph 9 below. The



      Participant, by his or her acceptance of this Agreement, shall irrevocably grant to the Company a power of attorney to transfer any shares forfeited pursuant to Paragraph 3 and agrees to execute any documents requested by the Company in connection with the forfeiture and transfer. The provisions of this Paragraph 2 are specifically performable by the Company in a court of equity or law.
  (b)   Except as otherwise provided by Paragraph 3, the Restricted Stock shall vest ratably over a three-year period following the Date of Grant, with 1/3 of the Restricted Stock vesting on the first annual anniversary of the Date of Grant, 1/3 of the Restricted Stock vesting on the second annual anniversary of the Date of Grant, and 1/3 of the Restricted Stock vesting on the third annual anniversary of the Date of Grant. Absent prior written consent of the Committee, the shares of Restricted Stock granted hereunder to the Participant are subject to forfeiture to the Company and may not be sold, assigned, transferred, pledged or otherwise encumbered, whether voluntarily or involuntarily, by operation of law or otherwise, from the Date of Grant until the shares of Restricted Stock shall have become vested in the Participant.
  (c)   Consistent with the foregoing, except as contemplated by Paragraph 4 below, no right or benefit under this Agreement shall be subject to transfer, anticipation, alienation, sale, assignment, pledge, encumbrance or charge, whether voluntary, involuntary, by operation of law or otherwise, and any attempt to transfer, anticipate, alienate, sell, assign, pledge, encumber or charge the same shall be void. No right or benefit hereunder shall in any manner be liable for or subject to any debts, contracts, liabilities or torts of the person entitled to such benefits. If the Participant or his Beneficiary hereunder becomes bankrupt or attempts to transfer, anticipate, alienate, assign, sell, pledge, encumber or charge any right or benefit hereunder, other than as contemplated by Paragraph 4, or if any creditor attempts to subject the same to a writ of garnishment, attachment, execution, sequestration, or any other form of process or involuntary lien or seizure, then such right or benefit will cease and terminate.
  3.   Effect of Termination of Employment or Services
  (a)   The Restricted Stock granted pursuant to this Agreement will vest in accordance with the vesting schedule reflected in Paragraph 2(b) above, on the condition that the Participant remains employed by or continues to provide services to the Company or a Subsidiary through each applicable vesting date set forth in Paragraph 2(b). If, however, either:
  (i)   the Company and its Subsidiaries terminate the Participant’s employment or service relationship; or



  (ii)   the Participant terminates his or her employment or service relationship,
      then the shares of Restricted Stock that have not vested in accordance with the vesting schedule reflected in Paragraph 2(b) above, as of the date of the termination of employment (or cessation of services, as applicable), shall be forfeited by the Participant to the Company.
  (b)   Notwithstanding Paragraph 3(a) above, upon the cessation of the Participant’s employment or services (whether voluntary or involuntary), the Committee may, in its sole and absolute discretion, elect to accelerate the vesting of some or all of the unvested shares of Restricted Stock.
  4.   Limitation of Rights
      Nothing in this Agreement or the Plan shall be construed to:
  (a)   give the Participant any right to be awarded any further Restricted Stock or any other Award in the future, even if Restricted Stock or other Awards are granted on a regular or repeated basis, as grants of Restricted Stock and other Awards are completely voluntary and made solely in the discretion of the Committee;
  (b)   give the Participant or any other person any interest in any fund or in any specified asset or assets of the Company or any Subsidiary; or
  (c)   confer upon the Participant the right to continue in the employment or service of the Company or any Subsidiary, or affect the right of the Company or any Subsidiary to terminate the employment or service of the Participant at any time or for any reason.
  5.   Data Privacy
               By execution of this Agreement, the Participant acknowledges that he or she has read and understands the Flowserve Corporation Employee Data Protection Policy (the “Policy”). The Participant hereby consents to the collection, processing, transmission, use and electronic and manual storage of his or her personal data by the Company, Wells Fargo Shareowner Services (“Wells Fargo”) and Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc.

  8.   Successors and Assigns
               This Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the Participant, the Company and their respective permitted successors and assigns (including personal representatives, heirs and legatees), except that the Participant may not assign any rights or obligations under this Agreement except to the extent and in the manner expressly permitted herein.
  9.   Securities Act
               The Company will not be required to deliver any shares of Common Stock pursuant to this Agreement if, in the opinion of counsel for the Company, such issuance would violate the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) or any other applicable federal or state securities laws or regulations. The Committee may require that the Participant, prior to the issuance of any such shares, sign and deliver to the Company a written statement, which shall be in a form and contain content acceptable to the Committee, in its sole discretion (“Investment Letter”):
  (a)   stating that the Participant is acquiring the shares for investment and not with a view to the sale or distribution thereof;
  (b)   stating that the Participant will not sell any shares of Common Stock that the Participant may then own or thereafter acquire except either:
  (i)   through a broker on a national securities exchange, or
  (ii)   with the prior written approval of the Company; and



  (c)   containing such other terms and conditions as counsel for the Company may reasonably require to assure compliance with the Securities Act or other applicable federal or state securities laws and regulations.
  10.   Federal and State Taxes
  (a)   Any amount of Common Stock that is payable or transferable to the Participant hereunder may be subject to the payment of or reduced by any amount or amounts which the Company is required to withhold under the then applicable provisions of the laws of the jurisdiction where the Participant is employed, and, if applicable, the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), or its successors, or any other foreign, federal, state or local tax withholding requirement. When the Company is required to withhold any amount or amounts under the applicable provisions of any foreign, federal, state or local requirement or the Code, the Company shall withhold from the Common Stock to be issued to the Participant a number of shares necessary to satisfy the Company’s withholding obligations. The number of shares of Common Stock to be withheld shall be based upon the Fair Market Value of the shares on the date of withholding.
  (b)   Notwithstanding Paragraph 10(a) above, if the Participant elects, and the Committee agrees, the Company’s withholding obligations may instead be satisfied as follows:
  (i)   the Participant may direct the Company to withhold cash that is otherwise payable to the Participant;
  (ii)   the Participant may deliver to the Company a sufficient number of shares of Common Stock then owned by the Participant to satisfy the Company’s withholding obligations, based on the Fair Market Value of the shares as of the date of withholding;
  (iii)   the Participant may deliver sufficient cash to the Company to satisfy its withholding obligations; or
  (iv)   any combination of the alternatives described in Paragraphs 10(b)(i) through 10(b)(iii) above.
  (c)   Authorization of the Participant to the Company to withhold taxes pursuant to one or more of the alternatives described in Paragraph 10(b) above must be in a form and content acceptable to the Committee. The payment or authorization to withhold taxes by the Participant shall be completed prior to the delivery of any shares pursuant to this Agreement. An authorization to withhold taxes pursuant to this provision will be irrevocable unless and until the tax liability of the Participant has been fully paid.

In the event any breach of this promise comes to the attention of the Company, it shall take into consideration that breach in determining whether to recommend the grant of any future similar award to the Participant, as a factor weighing against the advisability of granting any such future award to the Participant.
  16.   No Right to Stock
               No Participant and no beneficiary or other person claiming under or through such Participant shall have any right, title or interest in any shares of Common Stock allocated or reserved under the Plan or subject to this Agreement, except as to such shares of Common Stock, if any, that have been issued or transferred to such Participant.
