The Company shall contribute:
(i) 8.33% of the Salary towards the severance pay component; and

6.5% of the Salary towards the pension component. If the Employee is insured in a mangers insurance policy or a provident fund (which is not a pension fund), the said rate shall include the rate of contributions towards the disability insurance as in effect from time to time, ensuring a loss of earning payment of 75% of the Salary but no less than 5% towards the pension component, all subject to the terms of the Extension Order regarding the Increase of Pension Contributions - 2016 (the "Pension Order 2016").

| ||8.6.2. || |
The Company shall also deduct 6% of the Salary to be paid on account of the Employee towards the Pension Arrangement.

It is hereby agreed that the settlement regulated in the General Order as amended (attached as Appendix D) published under section 14 of the Severance Pay Law 1963 applies. The Company’s contributions to the Employee's Pension Arrangement will therefore constitute the Employee's entire entitlement to severance pay in respect of the paid Salary, in place of any severance pay to which the Employee otherwise may have become entitled at law.
| ||8.8. || |
The Company waives all rights to have its payments refunded, unless the Employee's right to severance pay is denied by a judgment according to sections 16 or 17 of the Severance Pay Law or in the event that the Employee withdraw monies from the Pension Arrangement in circumstances other than an Entitling Event, where an “Entitling Event” means death, disablement or retirement at the age of 60 or over.
By signing this Agreement, the Employee acknowledges that in accordance with the terms of the General Order, if the Employee chooses to be insured in a Pension Arrangement, which is not a pension fund, the Employee must also be insured in disability insurance, ensuring loss of earning payment of 75% of the Salary (or the relevant portion of the Salary which the Employee chooses to insure in such an arrangement).
| ||8.9. || |
Further Education Fund - The Company shall continue to make monthly further education fund contributions as follows: 7.5% of Salary paid by the Company on its account and 2.5% of Salary to be deducted by the Company from such Salary to be paid on account of the Employee.
| ||8.10. || |
The Employee shall bear any and all taxes applicable in connection with amounts payable by the Employee and/or Company to the said Further Education Fund.
| ||8.11. || |

| ||13.6. || |
For the avoidance of doubt, the Company reserves the right to change or cancel its Bonus Plan at any time and for any reason, in its sole discretion.

For the avoidance of doubt, during the Adjustment Period, the Employee's undertakings under Section 9 above regarding confidentiality, non-competition and non-solicitation shall continue to apply as if the Adjustment Period was during the Employee's period of active employment (the "Obligations").
| ||15. || |
Termination in Connection with a Change in Control
Notwithstanding anything set forth in Section 14 above, if the Employee is terminated without Cause within one year following a Change in Control (as defined below), subject to the provision of a receipt and release of claims by the Employee to the Company in the form customary in the Company, and the Employee's continued compliance with the Obligations the Company will provide the Employee with the Continued Payroll, and all benefits, for twelve months following the relevant termination date (the "Change in Control Severance Period");

| ||(4) || |
No later than three months from the commencement of the Employer's Payments, a written agreement is executed between the employer and the employee in which -
| ||(a) || |
The employee has agreed to the arrangement pursuant to this approval in a text specifying the Employer's Payments, the Pension Fund and Insurance Fund, as the case may be; the said agreement shall also include the text of this approval;
| ||(b) || |
The employer waives in advance any right, which it may have to a refund of monies from his payments, unless the employee’s right to severance pay has been revoked by a judgment by virtue of Section 16 and 17 of the Law, and to the extent so revoked and/or the employee has withdrawn monies from the Pension Fund or Insurance Fund other than by reason of an entitling event; in such regard "Entitling Event" means death, disability or retirement at after the age of 60.
This approval is not such as to derogate from the employee's right to severance pay pursuant to any law, collective agreement, extension order or employment agreement, in respect of salary over and above the Exempt Salary.
