(the “Company”) and __________________ (the “Participant”), pursuant to the G-III Apparel Group, Ltd. 2015 Long-Term Incentive Plan, as amended (the “Plan”). Capitalized terms that are used but not defined in this Agreement shall have the meanings given to them by the Plan.

1.         Performance Share Unit Award. In accordance with the Plan, the Company hereby grants to the Participant ______ performance share units (“PSUs”). Each PSU represents the right to receive one share of the Company’s common stock (a “Share”), subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Plan and the Approval (as such term is hereinafter defined) including, without limitation, the potential upward or downward adjustment in the number of Shares issued to the Participant pursuant to this Agreement.

2.         Vesting Conditions.  The Participant’s right to receive Shares covered by this Agreement shall become vested on April 1, 2025, subject to (i) confirmation by the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors of the Company of the attainment of the 3-Year Cumulative Adjusted EBIT (“Adjusted EBIT”) and/or Return on Invested Capital (“ROIC”) performance conditions and the performance levels achieved, and to the other provisions set forth in Exhibit A to the minutes of the meeting of the Committee approving (the “Approval”) the grant subject to this Agreement and (ii) the Participant’s continuous employment or other service with the Company through the vesting date.  The terms of this grant including the Adjusted EBIT and ROIC performance conditions; upward (up to a maximum award of 150% of the number of Shares) or downward (to the minimum award of 50% of the number of Shares) adjustments to the number of Shares earned, absence of vesting of any PSU shares if the minimum thresholds with respect to the performance conditions are not attained, based on actual performance compared to the performance conditions; the percentage of Shares earned based on satisfaction of the Adjusted EBIT or ROIC performance condition; accounting adjustments provided for in determining Adjusted EBIT and ROIC; and other matters related to the PSUs are all as set forth in the Approval.  All determinations with respect to the satisfaction of the Adjusted EBIT or ROIC performance condition and the other matters set forth in the Approval shall be made by the Committee and shall be in accordance with the terms set forth in the Approval.

3.         Settlement of PSUs. If and when PSUs become vested, the Participant will have the right to receive a corresponding number of whole Shares from the Company in full settlement of such vested PSUs. Such Shares will be issued and delivered in certificated or electronic form as soon as practicable (but not more than 90 days) after the applicable PSU vesting date, subject to any applicable tax withholding and other conditions set forth in the Plan, this Agreement and/or applicable law.

4.         Termination of Employment or Service. Upon the termination of the Participant’s employment or other service with the Company, any unvested PSUs then covered by this Agreement shall be canceled and the Participant shall have no further rights with respect thereto.

5.         No Rights as a Shareholder. The Participant shall have no ownership or other rights of a stockholder with respect to Shares underlying the PSUs (including any right to receive dividends or to vote such Shares) unless and until such Shares are issued to the Participant in settlement of vested PSUs.

6.         Tax Withholding. Prior to any settlement of vested PSUs, the Participant shall be required to pay or make adequate arrangements satisfactory to the Company for the payment of all applicable tax withholding obligations. The Participant hereby authorizes the Company to satisfy all or part of the amount of such tax withholding obligations by deducting such amount from cash compensation or other payments that would otherwise be owed to the Participant. The Committee, acting in its sole discretion and pursuant to applicable law, may permit the Participant to satisfy any such tax withholding obligations with Shares that would otherwise be issued to the Participant in settlement of vested PSUs, and/or with previously-owned shares of the Company’s common stock held by the Participant. The amount of the Participant’s tax withholding obligation that is satisfied in shares of the Company’s common stock, if any, shall be based upon the Fair Market Value of such shares on the date such shares are delivered or withheld.

7.         Restrictions on Transfer. Except as otherwise permitted by the Committee acting in its discretion under the Plan, the PSUs and the Participant’s right to receive Shares in settlement of vested PSUs may not be sold, assigned, transferred, pledged or otherwise alienated or disposed of (except by will or the laws of descent and distribution), and may not become subject to attachment, garnishment, execution or other legal or equitable process, and any attempt to do so shall be null and void.
