6.Vesting: The Incentive Compensation Award shall vest (if at all) based on attainment of the performance goals (the “Performance Goals”) during the period (the “Performance Period”), provided that the Grantee continues to be employed by the Company through the date, following the end of the Performance Period, that the Committee certifies that the Performance Goals have been attained (the “Vesting Date”). At the end of the Performance Period, the Committee shall determine whether and to what extent the Performance Goals have been met, shall certify attainment of the Performance Goals and shall deliver and or pay such Incentive Compensation Awards as soon as practicable thereafter. The Committee shall have the discretion to reduce (including to zero) the amount of the Incentive Compensation Award that would otherwise vest upon attainment of the Performance Goals, based on such factors as the Committee deems appropriate. In

The pro rata portion of the Incentive Compensation Award that vests shall be determined by multiplying the amount of the Incentive Compensation Award earned based on attainment of the Performance Goals, by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of completed full months from the Award Date to the date of the Grantee’s termination of employment and the denominator of which is 36. The vested Incentive Compensation Award shall be settled as described in Section 10 below. For purposes of this Award:

13.Severability.

INGEVITY CORPORATION OMNIBUS INCENTIVE PLAN
Terms and Conditions
This Appendix includes additional terms and conditions that govern the service-based Incentive Compensation Awards (“Awards”) granted to you under the Plan if you work and/or reside outside the United States. Certain capitalized terms used but not defined in this Appendix have the meanings set forth in the Plan and/or the Terms and Conditions. The terms included in this Appendix are intended to ensure compliance with the laws of the country in which you are employed.
Section I of this Appendix includes special terms and conditions that govern Awards in all countries outside of the United States. Section II of this Appendix includes special terms and conditions that govern Awards in specific countries listed therein.
This Appendix also includes information regarding exchange controls and certain other issues of which you should be aware with respect to your participation in the Plan. The information is based on the securities, exchange control and other laws in effect in the respective countries as of March 2015. Such laws are often complex and change frequently. As a result, the Company strongly recommends that you not rely on the information in the Appendix as the only source of information relating to the consequences of your participation in the Plan because the information may be out of date at the time that you receive payment of your Awards.
In addition, the information contained herein is general in nature and may not apply to your particular situation and the Company is not in a position to assure you of any particular result. Accordingly, you are advised to seek appropriate professional advice as to how the relevant laws in your country may apply to your situation.
Finally, if you are a citizen or resident of a country other than the one in which you are currently working, transfer employment and/or residency after the Awards are granted or are considered a resident of another country for local law purposes, the information contained herein may not be applicable to you in the same manner.
