Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc.
Restricted Stock Award Agreement
under the
Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc.
2021 Stock Plan
1.    Terminology. Unless otherwise provided in this Award Agreement, capitalized words used herein are defined in the Glossary at the end of this Award Agreement, the Notice, or the Plan.

2.    Termination of Employment or Service.

(a)    If your Service with the Company or successor ceases for any reason, except as otherwise specified in the Notice or below, all Award Shares that are not then vested and nonforfeitable will be immediately forfeited by you and transferred to the Company upon such cessation for no consideration. Any accrued dividends attributable to such forfeited Award Shares shall also be forfeited if and when the Award Shares are forfeited. Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, if your Service terminates as a result of a Qualifying Termination, then all outstanding Award Shares that are not then vested and nonforfeitable shall, effective as of the date on which your Service terminates, become 100% vested and nonforfeitable.

(b)    You acknowledge and agree that upon the forfeiture of any unvested Award Shares, (i) your right to vote and to receive cash dividends on, and all other rights, title or interest in, to or with respect to, the forfeited Award Shares shall automatically, without further act, terminate and (ii) the forfeited Award Shares shall be returned to the Company. You hereby irrevocably appoint (which appointment is coupled with an interest) the Company as your agent and attorney-in-fact to take any necessary or appropriate action to cause the forfeited Award Shares to be returned to the Company, including without limitation executing and delivering stock powers and instruments of transfer, making endorsements and/or making, initiating or issuing instructions or entitlement orders, all in your name and on your behalf. You hereby ratify and approve all acts done by the Company as such attorney-in-fact. Without limiting the foregoing, you expressly acknowledge and agree that any transfer agent for the Stock of the Company is fully authorized and protected in relying on, and shall incur no liability in acting on, any documents, instruments, endorsements, instructions, orders or communications from the Company in connection with the forfeited Award Shares or the transfer thereof, and that any such transfer agent is a third party beneficiary of this Award Agreement.

3.    Restrictions on Transfer and Receipt of Cash Dividends.

(a)    Until an Award Share becomes vested and nonforfeitable, it may not be sold, assigned, transferred, pledged, hypothecated or disposed of in any way (whether by operation of law or otherwise), except by will or the laws of descent and distribution, and shall not be subject to execution, attachment or similar process.

2021 Stock Plan

    (b)    Any attempt to dispose of any such Award Shares in contravention of the restrictions set forth in Section 3(a) shall be null and void and without effect. The Company shall not be required to (i) transfer on its books any Award Shares that have been sold or transferred in contravention of this Award Agreement or (ii) treat as the owner of Award Shares, or otherwise accord voting, dividend or liquidation rights to, any transferee to whom Award Shares have been transferred in contravention of this Award Agreement.
    (c)    Any regular or extraordinary cash dividends that become payable with respect to an unvested Award Share will be accrued and held by the Company or an escrow agent appointed by the Committee until the Award Share becomes vested and will be paid to you within fifteen days after the date on which the related Award Share becomes vested or will be forfeited if and when the related Award Share is forfeited.

4.    Stock Certificates.

    (a)    You are reflected as the owner of record of the Award Shares as of the Grant Date on the Company’s books. The Company or an escrow agent appointed by the Committee will hold in escrow the share certificates for safekeeping, or the Company may otherwise retain the Award Shares in uncertificated book entry form, until the Award Shares become vested and nonforfeitable. Until the Award Shares become vested and nonforfeitable, any share certificates representing such shares will include a legend to the effect that you may not sell, assign, transfer, pledge, or hypothecate the Award Shares. As soon as practicable after vesting of an Award Share, the Company or its escrow agent will deliver the Award Share to you, subject to the provisions of Section 5 of this Award Agreement. The Company will determine the form of delivery (e.g., a stock certificate or electronic entry evidencing such shares) and may deliver such share on your behalf electronically to the Company’s designated stock plan administrator or such other broker-dealer as the Company may choose at its sole discretion, within reason.

    (b)    You are not required to make any monetary payment (other than applicable tax withholding, if any) as a condition to receiving the Award Shares, the consideration for which shall be past services actually rendered or, if none, future services to be rendered to the Company or for its benefit. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if required by applicable state corporate law, you shall furnish consideration in the form of cash or past services rendered to the Company or for its benefit having a value not less than the par value of the Award Shares.

5.    Tax Election and Tax Withholding.

(a)    You hereby acknowledge that you have been advised by the Company to seek independent tax advice from your own advisors regarding the availability and advisability of making an election under Section 83(b) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and that any such election, if made, must be made within 30 days of the Grant Date. You expressly acknowledge that you are solely responsible for filing any such Section 83(b) election

2021 Stock Plan

with the appropriate governmental authorities, irrespective of the fact that such election is also delivered to the Company. You may not rely on the Company or any of its officers, directors or employees for tax or legal advice regarding this award. You acknowledge that you have sought tax and legal advice from your own advisors regarding this award or have voluntarily and knowingly foregone such consultation.
(b)    On or before the time you receive the Award Shares, or at any time thereafter as requested by the Company, you may satisfy any federal, state, local or foreign tax withholding obligation relating to your Award Shares by any of the following means, which you must elect in advance by making an appropriate election via the account established under your name with E*TRADE Financial or such other brokerage firm selected by the Company (the “Brokerage Account”) at such time or times specified by the Committee: (i) tendering a cash payment that covers your tax withholding obligation by depositing such cash payment into your Brokerage Account or providing it directly to the Company on or before the date your Award Shares vest; or (ii) authorizing a sell-to-cover transaction, which involves the automatic sale by E*TRADE Financial or such other brokerage firm selected by the Company, through one or more block trades, of the number of Award Shares that vest with the value necessary to satisfy the tax withholding obligations, the assignment to the Company of the proceeds of the sale for subsequent payment to the relevant tax authorities, and the release or delivery to you of the remaining vested Award Shares. The Committee shall have discretion to allow any other method of satisfying tax withholding obligations as it may determine to be adequate.
(c)    If you do not make an election via your Brokerage Account on or prior to the date your Award Shares vest regarding the method of satisfaction of your tax withholding obligation, or if you timely elect to satisfy your tax withholding obligation via tendering a cash payment as provided above, but as of the date your Award Shares vest there are insufficient funds in your Brokerage Account or received by the Company to cover the tax withholding obligation, then such tax withholding obligation shall be satisfied through a sell-to-cover transaction (as described above).
(d)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in Section 5(b) or 5(c) above, including any election that you may have made through your Brokerage Account, the Company will satisfy the tax withholding obligations relating to your Award Shares by withholding from the shares otherwise deliverable to you in connection with your Award Shares, or redeeming Award Shares, and releasing or delivering to you the remaining shares if on the date your Award Shares vest you are an executive officer of the Company and you have not tendered a cash payment on or before the vesting date in full satisfaction of the tax withholding obligation.
(e)    Any shares withheld or redeemed to satisfy any tax withholding obligations shall not exceed the amount determined by the applicable minimum statutory withholding rates.
(f)    Unless the tax withholding obligations of the Company and/or any Affiliate are satisfied, the Company shall have no obligation to deliver to you any Stock. If any

2021 Stock Plan

tax withholding obligation is not satisfied in full through one of the methods described in this Section 5, the Company shall have the right to deduct such taxes from any compensation or any other payment of any kind due you (including the right to withhold the issuance or delivery of shares of Stock or to redeem Award Shares). In the event the Company’s obligation to withhold arises prior to the delivery to you of Stock or it is determined after the delivery of Stock to you that the amount of the Company’s withholding obligation was greater than the amount withheld by the Company, you agree to indemnify and hold the Company harmless from any failure by the Company to withhold the proper amount.
6.    Adjustments for Corporate Transactions and Other Events.

(a)    Stock Dividend, Stock Split and Reverse Stock Split. Upon a stock dividend of, or stock split or reverse stock split affecting, the Stock, the number of Award Shares and the number of such Award Shares that are nonvested and forfeitable shall, without further action of the Committee, be adjusted to reflect such event. The Committee shall make adjustments, in its discretion, to address the treatment of fractional shares with respect to the Award Shares as a result of the stock dividend, stock split or reverse stock split; provided that such adjustments do not result in the issuance of fractional Award Shares. Adjustments under this Section 6 will be made by the Committee, whose determination as to what adjustments, if any, will be made and the extent thereof will be final, binding and conclusive.

(b)    Binding Nature of Agreement. The terms and conditions of this Award Agreement shall apply with equal force to any additional and/or substitute securities received by you in exchange for, or by virtue of your ownership of, the Award Shares, to the same extent as the Award Shares with respect to which such additional and/or substitute securities are distributed, whether as a result of any spin-off, stock split-up, stock dividend, stock distribution, other reclassification of the Stock of the Company, or similar event, except as otherwise determined by the Committee. If the Award Shares are converted into or exchanged for, or stockholders of the Company receive by reason of any distribution in total or partial liquidation or pursuant to any merger of the Company or acquisition of its assets, securities of another entity, or other property (including cash), then the rights of the Company under this Award Agreement shall inure to the benefit of the Company’s successor, and this Award Agreement shall apply to the securities or other property (including cash) received upon such conversion, exchange or distribution in the same manner and to the same extent as the Award Shares.

(c)    Treatment on Change in Control. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in connection with a Change in Control, the Board shall determine in its sole discretion, and shall, to the extent applicable, ensure that the definitive documentation setting forth the terms of the Change in Control provides, that either:

    (i)    the Company shall continue to maintain in effect, or the Company’s successor shall assume, the Plan, this Award Agreement and all Awards Shares outstanding hereunder (together with all other outstanding equity incentive plans, award agreements and awards of the Company), and such Awards Shares shall continue to remain

2021 Stock Plan

outstanding, with the number and kind of such Award Shares adjusted to reflect the Change in Control in accordance with the terms of the Plan, and otherwise in accordance with and subject to their terms and conditions (including, without limitation, with respect to vesting, exercise, forfeiture, repurchase and restrictive covenants) as in effect immediately prior to the Change in Control; or

    (ii)    the Award Shares shall be cancelled immediately prior to and contingent upon the consummation of such Change in Control in exchange for a cash payment to you in respect thereof in an amount calculated based on the value of the Award Shares at the time of such Change in Control as determined by the Board in its sole discretion, in all cases, assuming the Award was fully vested and exercisable and/or not subject to forfeiture, as applicable. For avoidance of doubt: In respect of any outstanding Award Share, you shall be eligible to receive an amount in cash equal to the per-share consideration received by sellers of the class of such shares generally in the Change in Control.

Payments described in this Section 6(c) shall be made on, or as soon as administratively practicable following, the Change in Control.

7.    Non-Guarantee of Employment or Service Relationship. Nothing in the Plan or this Award Agreement shall alter your employment status or other service relationship with the Company, nor be construed as a contract of employment or service relationship between the Company and you, or as a contractual right of you to continue in the employ of, or in a service relationship with, the Company for any period of time, or as a limitation of the right of the Company to discharge you at any time with or without cause or notice and whether or not such discharge results in the forfeiture of any Award Shares or any other adverse effect on your interests under the Plan.

8.    Rights as Stockholder. Except as otherwise provided in this Award Agreement with respect to the nonvested and forfeitable Award Shares and the payment of regular or extraordinary cash dividends thereon, you will possess all incidents of ownership of the Award Shares, including the right to vote the Award Shares and receive stock dividends and/or other distributions declared on the Award Shares.

9.    The Company’s Rights. The existence of the Award Shares shall not affect in any way the right or power of the Company or its stockholders to make or authorize any or all adjustments, recapitalizations, reorganizations or other changes in the Company’s capital structure or its business, or any merger or consolidation of the Company, or any issue of bonds, debentures, preferred or other stocks with preference ahead of or convertible into, or otherwise affecting the Stock or the rights thereof, or the dissolution or liquidation of the Company, or any sale or transfer of all or any part of the Company's assets or business, or any other corporate act or proceeding, whether of a similar character or otherwise.

13.    Conformity with Plan. This Award Agreement is intended to conform in all respects with, and is subject to all applicable provisions of, the Plan.

The value of the Award Shares subject to this Award Agreement shall not be included as compensation, earnings, salaries, or other similar terms used when calculating your benefits under any employee benefit plan sponsored by the Company or any Affiliate, except as such plan otherwise expressly provides. The Company expressly reserves its rights to amend, modify, or terminate any of the Company’s or any Affiliate’s employee benefit plans.
