Long-Term Incentive Award: As a part of your new hire offer, you have been nominated for a one­ time Restricted Stock ( Unit award (the “One-Time RSU”) with a nominal value of $2,700,000 to be effective August 3, 2020 (the “Grant Date”) subject to final approval by the Leadership Development and Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors of IQVIA Holdings Inc.
IQVIA will determine the number of One-Time RSUs by dividing the nominal value of $2,700,000 by the closing price of a share of IQVIA common stock as of the Grant Date. An RSU is the promise of a share of stock on a future date (the “Vesting Date”). It is “restricted” because until it vests, you cannot sell it and you have no voting rights. It is a “unit” because the share under1ying the unit isn't transferred to you until the Vesting Date. The One-Time RSUs will vest in equal installments on each of the first three anniversaries of the Grant Date. If you leave our employment for any reason, you will forfeit any One-Time RSUs that are unvested at that time.
One-Time RSUs approved by the Committee will be subject to the various terms and conditions of the IQVIA Holdings Inc. 2017 Incentive and Stock Award Plan (the “Plan”) and the grant agreement, including provisions regarding vesting and forfeiture.
