RESTRICTED STOCK UNIT AGREEMENT
For Non-US Participants
Capitalized terms not specifically defined in this Restricted Stock Unit Agreement for Non-US Participants, including any additional terms and conditions set forth in any appendix for Participant’s country (this “Appendix” and together with the Restricted Stock Unit Agreement, this “Agreement”) have the meanings specified in the Grant Notice or, if not defined in the Grant Notice, in the Plan.
1.1Award of RSUs
. The Company has granted the RSUs to Participant effective as of the Grant Date set forth in the Grant Notice (the “Grant Date”). Each RSU represents the right to receive one Share as set forth in this Agreement. Participant will have no right to the distribution of any Shares until the time (if ever) the RSUs have vested.
1.2Incorporation of Terms of Plan
. The RSUs are subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement and in the Plan, which is incorporated herein by reference. In the event of any inconsistency between the Plan and this Agreement, the terms of the Plan will control.
. The RSUs will at all times prior to settlement represent an unsecured Company obligation payable only from the Company’s general assets.
VESTING; forfeiture AND SETTLEMENT
. The RSUs will vest according to the vesting schedule in the Grant Notice except that any fraction of an RSU that would otherwise be vested will be accumulated and will vest only when a whole RSU has accumulated. In the event of Participant’s Termination of Service for any reason, all unvested RSUs will immediately and automatically be cancelled and forfeited, except as otherwise determined by the Administrator or provided in a binding written agreement between Participant and the Company.
For purposes of the RSUs, Participant’s Termination of Service is deemed to occur as of the date Participant is no longer actively providing services to the Company or any Subsidiary (regardless of the reason for the termination and whether or not later found to be invalid or in breach of Applicable Law in the jurisdiction where Participant is rendering services or the terms of Participant’s employment or other service agreement, if any) (the “Termination Date”), and unless otherwise determined by the Administrator, Participant’s right to vest in the RSUs, if any, will terminate as of the Termination Date and will not be extended by any notice period (e.g., Participant’s period of service would not include any contractual notice period or any period of “garden leave” or similar period mandated under the Applicable Law of the jurisdiction where Participant is rendering services or the terms of Participant’s employment or other service agreement, if any). The Administrator shall have the exclusive discretion to determine when Participant is no longer actively providing services for purposes of the RSUs (including whether Participant may still be considered to be providing services while on a leave of absence) and, hence, when the Termination Date occurs.
(a)The RSUs will be paid in Shares as soon as administratively practicable after the vesting of the applicable RSU, but in no event later than March 15 of the year following the year in which the RSU’s vesting date occurs.
(b)Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company may delay any payment under this Agreement that the Company reasonably determines would violate Applicable Law until the earliest date the Company reasonably determines the making of the payment will not cause such a violation (in accordance with Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-2(b)(7)(ii)); provided the Company reasonably believes the delay will not result in the imposition of excise taxes under Section 409A.
TAXATION AND TAX WITHHOLDING
. Participant represents to the Company that Participant has reviewed with Participant’s own tax advisors the tax consequences of this Award and the transactions contemplated by the Grant Notice and this Agreement. Participant is relying solely on such advisors and not on any statements or representations of the Company or any of its agents.
3.2Responsibility for Taxes.
(a)Participant acknowledges that, regardless of any action taken by the Company or, if different, the Subsidiary or other affiliate of the Company for which Participant renders services (the “Service Recipient”) the ultimate liability for all income tax, social insurance, payroll tax, fringe benefits tax, payment on account or other tax-related items related to Participant’s participation in the Plan and legally applicable to Participant (“Tax-Related Items”), is and remains Participant’s responsibility and may exceed the amount, if any, actually withheld by the Company or the Service Recipient. Participant further acknowledges that the Company and/or the Service Recipient (1) make no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related Items in connection with any aspect of the RSUs, including, but not limited to, the grant, vesting or settlement of the RSUs and the subsequent sale of Shares acquired pursuant to such settlement; and (2) do not commit to and are under no obligation to structure the terms of the grant or any aspect of the RSUs to reduce or eliminate Participant’s liability for Tax-Related Items or achieve any particular tax result. Further, if Participant is subject to Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction, Participant acknowledges that the Company and/or the Service Recipient (or former service recipient, as applicable) may be required to withhold or account for Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction.
(b)Prior to any relevant taxable or tax withholding event, as applicable, Participant agrees to make adequate arrangements satisfactory to the Company and/or the Service Recipient to satisfy all Tax-Related Items. In this regard, Participant authorizes the Company and/or the Service Recipient, or their respective agents, at their discretion, to satisfy the obligations with regard to all Tax-Related Items, if any, by one or a combination of the following:
(i)withholding from Participant’s wages or other cash compensation paid to Participant by the Company and/or the Service Recipient; or
(ii)withholding from proceeds of the sale of Shares acquired upon settlement of the RSUs either through a voluntary sale or through a mandatory sale arranged by the Company (on Participant’s behalf pursuant to this authorization without further consent); or
(iii)withholding in Shares to be issued upon settlement of the RSUs, or
(iv)any other arrangement approved by the Administrator.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Participant is subject to Section 16 of the Exchange Act, the Company will satisfy the obligations with regard to all Tax-Related Items by withholding in Shares to be issued upon settlement of the RSUs, unless the use of such withholding method is problematic under Applicable Laws or has materially adverse accounting consequences, in which case Participant may elect to (A) have the Company or the Service Recipient withhold from Participant’s wages or other cash compensation paid to Participant by the Company and/or the Service Recipient, or (B) have the Company withhold from proceeds of the sale of Shares acquired upon settlement of the RSUs, either through a voluntary sale or through a mandatory sale arranged by the Company (on Participant’s behalf pursuant to this authorization).
(c)The Company may withhold or account for Tax-Related Items by considering applicable statutory withholding amounts or other applicable withholding rates in Participant’s jurisdiction(s), including maximum rates applicable in Participant’s jurisdiction(s), in which case Participant will receive a refund of any over-withheld amount in cash and will have no entitlement to the Common Stock equivalent. If the obligation for Tax-Related Items is satisfied by withholding in Shares, for tax purposes, Participant is deemed to have been issued the full number of Shares subject to the vested RSUs, notwithstanding that a number of the Shares are held back solely for the purpose of paying the Tax-Related Items.
(d)Finally, Participant agrees to pay to the Company or the Service Recipient any amount of Tax-Related Items that the Company or the Service Recipient may be required to withhold or account for as a result of Participant’s participation in the Plan that cannot be satisfied by the means previously described. The Company may refuse to issue or deliver the Shares or the proceeds of the sale of Shares, if Participant fails to comply with Participant’s obligations in connection with the Tax-Related Items.
Participant hereby explicitly and unambiguously consents to the collection, use and transfer, in electronic or other form, of Participant’s personal data as described herein and any other award materials by and among, as applicable, the Service Recipient, the Company, and any other Subsidiary or other affiliate of the Company for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing Participant’s participation in the Plan.
Participant understands that the Company and the Service Recipient hold certain personal information about Participant, including but not limited to, Participant’s name, home address, email address and telephone number, date of birth, social insurance number, passport or other identification number, salary, nationality, job title, any Shares or directorships held in the Company, details of all awards or any other entitlement to Shares granted, canceled, exercised, vested, unvested or outstanding in Participant’s favor (“Data”), for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Plan.
Participant understands that Data will be transferred to Morgan Stanley and Shareworks by Morgan Stanley and certain of its affiliates (“Morgan Stanley”) and/or any other third parties assisting the Company with the implementation, administration and management of the Plan. Participant
understands that Morgan Stanley is and other recipients of Data may be located in the United States or elsewhere, and that the recipients’ country (e.g., the United States) may have different data privacy laws and protections than Participant’s country. Participant understands that Participant may request a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of Data by contacting Participant’s local human resources representative. Participant authorizes the Company, Morgan Stanley and any other possible recipients which may assist the Company (presently or in the future) with implementing, administering and managing the Plan to receive, possess, use, retain and transfer Data, in electronic or other form, for the purpose of implementing, administering and managing Participant’s participation in the Plan. Participant understands that the Company will hold and use Data only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage his or her participation in the Plan, or as required to comply with legal or regulatory obligations, including under tax, exchange control, labor and securities laws. This period may extend beyond Participant’s service relationship. When the Company or the Service Recipient no longer need Data for any of the above purposes, they will cease processing it in this context and remove it from all of their systems used for such purposes, to the fullest extent possible. Participant understands that Participant may, at any time, view Data, request additional information about the storage and processing of Data, require any necessary amendments to Data or refuse or withdraw the consents herein, in any case without cost, by contacting in writing Participant’s local human resources representative. Further, Participant understands that Participant are providing the consents herein on a purely voluntary basis. If Participant does not consent, or if Participant later seeks to revoke Participant’s consent, Participant’s employment or service with the Service Recipient will not be affected; the only consequence of refusing or withdrawing Participant’s consent is that the Company would not be able to grant the RSUs or other equity awards to Participant, or administer or maintain such awards. Therefore, Participant understands that refusing or withdrawing Participant’s consent may affect Participant’s ability to participate in the Plan. For more information on the consequences of Participant’s refusal to consent or withdrawal of consent, Participant understands that Participant may contact his or her local human resources representative.
Finally, upon request of the Company or the Service Recipient, Participant agrees to provide an executed data privacy consent form (or any other agreements or consents) that the Company or the Service Recipient may deem necessary to obtain from Participant for the purpose of administering Participant’s participation in the Plan in compliance with the data privacy laws in Participant’s country, either now or in the future. Participant understands and agrees that Participant will not be able to participate in the Plan if Participant fails to provide any such consent or agreement requested by the Company and/or the Service Recipient.
5.1Nature of Grant. By accepting the RSUs, Participant acknowledges, understands, and agrees that:
(a)the Plan is established voluntarily by the Company, it is wholly discretionary in nature;

(g)the future value of the Shares underlying the RSUs is unknown, indeterminable, and cannot be predicted with certainty;
(h)no claim or entitlement to compensation or damages shall arise from forfeiture of the RSUs resulting from Participant’s Termination of Service (for any reason whatsoever, whether or not later found to be invalid or in breach of Applicable Law in the jurisdiction where Participant is providing service or the terms of Participant’s employment or other service agreement, if any);
(i)unless otherwise agreed with the Company in writing, the RSUs and the Shares subject to the RSUs, and the income from and value of same, are not granted as consideration for, or in connection with, the service Participant may provide as a director of a Subsidiary or other affiliate of the Company;
(j)unless otherwise provided in the Plan or by the Company in its discretion, the RSUs and the benefits evidenced by this Agreement do not create any entitlement to have the RSUs or any such benefits transferred to, or assumed by, another company nor be exchanged, cashed out or substituted for, in connection with any corporate transaction affecting the Shares; and
(k)neither the Company, the Service Recipient nor any other Subsidiary or other affiliate of the Company shall be liable for any foreign exchange rate fluctuation between Participant’s local currency and the U.S. dollar that may affect the value of the RSUs or of any amounts due to Participant pursuant to the vesting of the RSUs or the subsequent sale of any Shares acquired upon settlement of the RSUs.
5.2No Advice Regarding Grant. The Company is not providing any tax, legal or financial advice, nor is the Company making any recommendations regarding Participant’s participation in the Plan, or his or her acquisition or sale of the underlying Shares.

Nothing in the Plan, the Grant Notice or this Agreement confers upon Participant any right to continue in the employ or service of the Company or any Subsidiary or interferes with or restricts in any way the rights of the Company and its Subsidiaries, which rights are hereby expressly reserved, to discharge or terminate the services of Participant at any time for any reason whatsoever, with or without cause, except to the extent expressly provided otherwise in a written agreement between the Company or a Subsidiary and Participant.

Inari Medical, Inc.

Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Grant Notice, the Non-US Restricted Stock Unit Agreement (the "Award Agreement") and the Plan.
Terms and Conditions
This Appendix includes additional terms and conditions that govern the RSUs if Participant resides and/or works in one of the countries listed below.
If Participant is a citizen or resident (or is considered as such for local law purposes) of a country other than the country in which Participant is currently residing and/or working, or if Participant transfers to another country after the Grant Date, the Administrator shall, in its discretion, determine to what extent the terms and conditions contained herein shall be applicable to Participant.

The information is based on the securities, exchange control, tax and other laws in effect in the respective countries as of February 2021. Such laws are often complex and change frequently. As a result, the Company strongly recommends that Participant not rely on the information noted herein as the only source of information relating to the consequences of his or her participation in the Plan because the information may be out of date at the time the RSUs vest or Participant sells Shares acquired under the Plan.
In addition, the information contained herein is general in nature and may not apply to Participant’s particular situation, and the Company is not in a position to assure Participant of any particular result. Accordingly, Participant should seek appropriate professional advice as to how the relevant laws in his or her country may apply to Participant’s situation.
If Participant is a citizen or resident (or is considered as such for local law purposes) of a country other than the one in which he or she is currently residing and/or working, or if Participant transfers to another country after the Grant Date, the information contained herein may not be applicable to Participant in the same manner.

For purposes of the RSUs, Participant’s Termination of Service is deemed to occur (regardless of the reason for the termination and whether or not later found to be invalid or in breach of Applicable Laws in the jurisdiction where Participant is rendering services or the terms of Participant’s employment or other service agreement, if any) on the date (the "Termination Date") that is the earlier of (1) the date upon which Participant’s employment with the Service Provider is terminated, whether by Participant, the Company or any Subsidiary, or by way of contractual frustration, or (3) the date Participant receives written notice of termination of employment from the Service Recipient, regardless of any notice period during which or period of notice, pay in lieu of such notice or related payments or damages are required to be provided under local law (including, but not limited to statutory law, regulatory law and/or common law). For greater certainty, Participant will not earn or be entitled to any pro-rated vesting for that portion of time before the date on which Participant’s right to vest terminates, not nor will Participant be entitled to any compensation for lost vesting.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if applicable employment standards legislation explicitly requires continued participation in the Plan during a statutory notice period, Participant acknowledges that his or her right to participate in the Plan, if any, will terminate effective as of the last day of Participant’s minimum statutory notice period, but Participant will not earn or be entitled to pro-rata vesting if the vesting date falls after the end of Participant’s statutory notice period, nor will Participant be entitled to any compensation for lost vesting.

Securities Law Information. Because this is a private offering in Switzerland, the RSUs are not subject to registration in Switzerland.

Terms and Conditions
Responsibility for Taxes. The following provision supplements Section 3.2 of the Award Agreement:
Without limitation to Section 3.2 of the Award Agreement, Participant agrees that Participant is liable for all Tax-Related Items and hereby covenants to pay all such Tax-Related Items as and when requested by the Company or the Service Recipient or by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (“HMRC”) (or any other tax authority or any other relevant authority). Participant also agrees to indemnify and keep indemnified the Company and the Service Recipient against any Tax-Related Items that they are required to pay or withhold or have paid or will pay to HMRC (or any other tax authority or any other relevant authority) on Participant’s behalf.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Participant is a director or executive officer (within the meaning of Section 13(k) of the Exchange Act), the terms of the immediately foregoing provision will not apply in case the indemnification is viewed as a loan. In this case, any income tax not collected within ninety (90) days of the end of the U.K. tax year in which an event giving rise to the Tax-Related Items occurs may constitute a benefit to Participant on which additional income tax and employee National Insurance contributions (“NICs”) may be payable. Participant understands that he or she will be responsible for reporting and paying any income tax due on this additional benefit directly to HMRC under the self-assessment regime and for reimbursing the Company and/or the Service Recipient (as appropriate) for the value of employee NICs due on this additional benefit which the Company and/or the Service Recipient may collect by any of the means referred to in Section 3.2 of the Award Agreement.
