The terms of the Award are as set forth in this Agreement and in the Plan, a copy of which is available on the UBS One Source Website. The Plan is incorporated into this Agreement by reference, which means that this Agreement is limited by and subject to the express terms and provisions of the Plan.

Issuance of Shares and Shareholder Rights. You shall not have any right in, to, or with respect to any of the Shares (including any voting rights or rights with respect to dividends paid on the Common Stock) issuable under the Award until the Award is settled by the issuance of such Shares to you.  The restricted share units shall vest in accordance with the above Vesting Schedule.  One Share shall be issuable for each restricted share unit that vests on such vesting date subject to the terms and provisions of the Plan and this Agreement.  On or promptly following those dates, the Company shall transfer such Shares to you upon satisfaction of any required tax withholding obligations.  Following settlement of the Award, and upon satisfaction of all tax withholding obligations, you become a shareholder of record, and shall receive voting rights and rights with respect to dividends paid thereafter on the Shares awarded.

Termination of Employment.
Retirement, Resignation or Termination with or without Cause or Constructive Discharge.  Except as otherwise provided in this Section or in a written agreement approved by the Executive Compensation and Development Committee (Committee), if you retire, or if you resign, or if your employment is terminated by the Company with or without Cause or Constructive Discharge before the Award vests, you shall forfeit the right to receive an Award.
Death or Disability.  In the event of your death or Disability while in employment prior to the vesting of the Shares, all unvested Shares shall immediately become fully vested and payable to you (or, in the event of your death, your estate).  “Disability” for this purpose shall be determined by the Committee pursuant to Section 22(e) (3) of the Code.
Change in Control.  In the event of a Change in Control, as that term is defined in the Plan, in cases where:
the acquiring company is not publicly traded, or
where the acquiring company is publicly traded and the company does not assume or replace the outstanding equity, or
your employment is terminated due to a without Cause termination or Constructive Discharge within twenty-four (24) months following a Change in Control where the awards were assumed or replaced, 
all unvested Shares granted pursuant to this Agreement shall immediately become fully vested and settled through the issuance of Shares promptly following such event.
Cause is defined as:  (A) your refusal or willful and continued failure to substantially perform your material duties to the best of your ability (for reasons other than death or disability), in any such case after written notice thereof and your failure to remedy such refusal or failure; (B) your gross negligence in the performance of your material duties; (C) any act of fraud, misappropriation, material dishonesty, embezzlement, willful misconduct or similar conduct; (D) your conviction of or plea of guilty or nolo contendere to a felony or any crime involving moral turpitude; or (E) your material and willful violation of any of the Company’s reasonable rules, regulations, policies, directions and restrictions.
Constructive Discharge is defined as:  (A) any material reduction of your base salary or total compensation opportunity other than a general reduction in base salary and/or total compensation opportunity that affects all substantially similar executives in substantially the same proportion; (B) a material and adverse change to, or a material reduction of, your duties and responsibilities to the Company (other than temporarily while you are physically or mentally incapacitated, or as required by applicable law); or (C) the relocation of your primary office to any location more than fifty (50) miles from the Company’s principal executive offices, resulting in a materially longer commute for you.
Restrictions.  Except as otherwise provided for in this Agreement or in the Plan, the restricted share units or rights granted hereunder may not be sold, pledged or otherwise transferred.

Non-Compete, Non-Solicitation
During your employment with the Company, you have and will become familiar with the Company’s trade secrets, information related to the operations, products and services of the Company, and with other Confidential Information concerning the Company, its subsidiaries, affiliates, and companies acquired by the Company. Therefore, during your employment period and for a period of one year thereafter, you agree that you shall not directly or indirectly own any interest in, manage, control, participate in, consult with, or render services for any Competing Business.
A “Competing Business” is any person or entity that (i) conducts or is planning to conduct a business similar to and/or in competition with any Company business unit to which you rendered services during the two year period prior to the date at issue or (ii) creates, develops, distributes, produces, offers for sale or sells a product or service that can be used as a substitute for, or is generally intended to satisfy the same customer needs for, any one or more products or services created, developed, distributed, produced or offered for sale or sold by the Company business unit to which you rendered services during the two year period prior to the date at issue.  In the event that you have an enterprise role at the Company, you will be deemed to render services to all Company business units.
During your employment and for a period of one year thereafter, you agree that you shall not directly, or indirectly through another entity, (i) induce or attempt to induce any employee of the Company or any affiliate to leave the employ of the Company or such affiliate, or in any way interfere with the relationship between the Company or any affiliate and any employee thereof, (ii) hire any person who was an employee of the Company or any affiliate at any time during the last twelve (12) months, or (iii) induce or attempt to induce any customer, supplier, licensee, licensor, franchisee or other business relation of the Company or any affiliate to cease doing business with the Company or such affiliate, or in any way interfere with the relationship between any such customer, supplier, licensee, licensor, franchisee or business relation and the Company or any affiliate (including, without limitation, making any negative statements or communications about the Company or its affiliates).

Generally.  You are ultimately liable and responsible for all taxes owed in connection with the Award, regardless of any action the Company or UBS takes with respect to any tax withholding obligations that arise in connection with the Award.  Neither the Company nor UBS makes any representation or undertaking regarding the treatment of any tax withholding in connection with the grant or vesting of the Award or the subsequent sale of Shares issuable pursuant to the Award.  The Company does not commit and is under no obligation to structure the Award to reduce or eliminate your tax liability.  The Company may refuse to issue any Shares to you until you satisfy the tax withholding obligation.   For purposes hereof, “UBS” includes the Plan third party administrator and any successor thereto.

Payment of Withholding Taxes.  Prior to each vesting date in connection with the Award that results in any domestic or foreign tax withholding obligation, whether national, federal, state or local, including any social tax obligation, you must arrange for the satisfaction of the minimum amount of such tax withholding obligation, as required, in a manner acceptable to the Company.  You are responsible for obtaining professional advice as appropriate.  Prior to the vesting dates in connection with the Award, you shall be notified by UBS of any tax withholding obligation.  You have the option of satisfying your tax withholding obligation in one of two ways:
By Surrendering Shares.  Unless you choose to satisfy the tax withholding obligation by some other means in accordance with clause (ii) below, your acceptance of this Award constitutes your instruction and authorization to the Company and UBS to withhold a whole number of Shares from those Shares issuable to you as the Company and UBS determine to be appropriate to satisfy your tax withholding obligation on each vesting date.       
By Check (U.S. participants only), Wire Transfer or Other Means.  You may elect to satisfy your tax withholding obligation by remitting to UBS as instructed an amount that the Company and UBS determine is sufficient to satisfy the minimum tax withholding obligation.
