SHARES SUBJECT TO PLAN
4.1 Maximum Number of Shares Issuable
Subject to adjustment as provided in Section 4.2, the maximum aggregate number of shares of Stock that may be issued under the Plan shall be 5,668,977 (or, on and after June 27, 2019, on a post-split basis, 2,834,488)and shall consist of authorized but unissued or reacquired shares of Stock or any combination thereof. The maximum aggregate number of such shares of Stock authorized for issuance in the foregoing sentence may be issued through Incentive Stock Options under the Plan. The maximum amount may also be issued as Nonstatutory Stock Options or as Restricted Stock. Shares of Stock of an outstanding Award that for any reason expires or is terminated, forfeited or canceled or withheld for tax withholding or settled in a manner that all or some of the shares of Stock covered by an Award are not issued to an Participant, or surrendered pursuant to an Exchange Program shall again be available for issuance under the Plan.
4.2 Adjustments for Changes in Capital Structure
In the event of any stock dividend, stock split, reverse stock split, recapitalization, combination, reclassification or similar change in the capital structure of the Company, appropriate adjustments shall be made in the number and class of shares subject to the Plan and
to any outstanding Awards and in the exercise price per share of any outstanding Awards and with respect to Options, if applicable, in accordance with Code Sections 424 and 409A. If a majority of the shares which are of the same class as the shares that are subject to outstanding Awards are exchanged for, converted into, or otherwise become (whether or not pursuant to a change in control) shares of another company (the New Shares), the Committee may, in its sole discretion, unilaterally amend the outstanding Awards to provide that such Awards are exercisable for New Shares. In the event of any such amendment, the number of shares subject to, and the exercise price per share of, the outstanding Awards shall be adjusted in a fair and equitable manner as determined by the Committee, in its discretion, and with respect to Options in accordance with Code Sections 424 and 409A and the regulations thereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any fractional share resulting from an adjustment pursuant to this Section 4.2 shall be rounded down to the nearest whole number, and in no event may the exercise price of any Award be decreased to an amount less than the par value, if any, of the stock subject to the Award. The adjustments determined by the Committee pursuant to this Section 4.2 shall be final, binding and conclusive.
ELIGIBILITY AND AWARD LIMITATIONS
5.1 Persons Eligible for Awards
Awards may be granted only to Employees, Consultants, and Directors. For purposes of the foregoing sentence, Employees, Consultants, and Directors shall include prospective Employees, prospective Consultants and prospective Directors to whom Awards are granted in connection with written offers of employment or other service relationships with the Company. Eligible persons may be granted more than one (1) Award. Eligibility in accordance with this Section shall not entitle any person to be granted an Award, or, having been granted an Award, to be granted an additional Award.
5.2 Award Agreements
Each Participant to whom an Award is granted shall be required to enter into an Award Agreement with the Company, in such a form as is provided by the Committee. The Award Agreement shall contain specific terms as determined by the Committee, in its discretion, with respect to the Participants particular Award. Such terms need not be uniform among all Participants or any similarly situated Participants. The Award Agreement may include, without limitation, vesting, forfeiture and other provisions particular to the particular Participants Award, as well as, for example, provisions to the effect that the Participant (i) shall not disclose any confidential information acquired during Employment with the Company, (ii) shall abide by all the terms and conditions of the Plan and such other terms and conditions as may be imposed by the Committee, (iii) shall not interfere with the employment or other Service of any
Employee, (iv) shall not compete with the Company or become involved in a conflict of interest with the interests of the Company, (v) shall forfeit an Award if terminated for Cause, (vi) shall not be permitted to make an election under Section 83(b) of the Code when applicable, and (vii) shall be subject to any other agreement between the Participant and the Company regarding
Shares that may be acquired under an Award including, without limitation, an agreement restricting the transferability of Shares by Participant. An Award Agreement shall include such terms and conditions as are determined by the Committee, in its discretion, to be appropriate with respect to any individual Participant. The Award Agreement shall be signed by the Participant to whom the Award is made and by an authorized officer of the Company.
5.3 Award Grant Restrictions
Any person who is not an Employee on the effective date of the grant of an Award to such person may be granted only a Nonstatutory Stock Option, Restricted Stock or Other Stock-Based Award. An Incentive Stock Award granted to an Employee of the Company, or its parent or Subsidiary as defined in Code Section 424(f), or to a prospective Employee of the Company, or its parent or its Subsidiary as defined in Code Section 424(f) upon the condition that such person become an Employee shall be deemed granted effective on the date such person commences service as an Employee with the Company, with an exercise price determined as of such date in accordance with Section 6.1.
5.4 Fair Market Value Limitation
To the extent that Options designated as Incentive Stock Options (granted under all stock option plans of the Company or parent or Subsidiary as defined in Code Section 422, including the Plan) become exercisable by an Participant for the first time during any calendar year for stock having an aggregate Fair Market Value greater than One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000), the portion of such options which exceeds such amount shall be treated as Nonstatutory Stock Options. For purposes of this Section 5.4, options designated as Incentive Stock Options shall be taken into account in the order in which they were granted, and the Fair Market Value of stock shall be determined as of the time the option with respect to such stock is granted. If the Code is amended to provide for a different limitation from that set forth in this Section 5.4, such different limitation shall be deemed incorporated herein effective as of the date and with respect to such Options as required or permitted by such amendment to the Code. If an Option is treated as an Incentive Stock Option in part and as a Nonstatutory Stock Option in part by reason of the limitation set forth in this Section 5.4, the Company at the request of the Participant may designate which portion of such Option the Participant is exercising. In the absence of such designation, the Participant shall be deemed to have exercised the Incentive Stock Option portion of the Option first. Separate certificates representing each such portion shall be issued upon the exercise of the Option.
5.5 Repurchase Rights
Shares under the Plan may be subject to a right of first refusal, one or more repurchase options, or other conditions and restrictions pursuant to a contract entered into by the Company and its stockholders or otherwise as determined by the Committee, in its discretion, at the time the Option is granted. The Company shall have the right to assign at any time any repurchase right it may have, whether or not such right is then exercisable, to one or more persons as may be selected by the Company. Upon request by the Company, each Optionee shall execute any agreement evidencing such transfer restrictions prior to the receipt of shares of Stock hereunder and shall promptly present to the Company any and all certificates representing shares of Stock
acquired hereunder for the placement on such certificates of appropriate legends evidencing any such transfer restrictions.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF OPTIONS
Options shall be evidenced by Award Agreements specifying the number of shares of Stock covered thereby, in such form as the Committee shall from time to time establish. No Option or purported Option shall be a valid and binding obligation of the Company unless evidenced by a fully executed Award Agreement. Award Agreements may incorporate all or any of the terms of the Plan by reference and shall comply with and be subject to the following terms and conditions:
6.1 Exercise Price
The exercise price for each Option shall be established in the discretion of the Committee; provided, however, that (a) the exercise price per share for an Option shall be not less than the Fair Market Value of a share of Stock on the effective date of grant of the Option and (b) no Incentive Stock Option granted to a Ten Percent Owner Participant shall have an exercise price per share less than one hundred ten percent (110%) of the Fair Market Value of a share of Stock on the effective date of grant of the Option. Notwithstanding the foregoing, an Option (whether an Incentive Stock Option or a Nonstatutory Stock Option) may be granted with an exercise price lower than the minimum exercise price set forth above if such Option is granted pursuant to an assumption or substitution for another option in a manner qualifying under the provisions of Sections 424 and 409A of the Code.
6.2 Exercisability and Term of Options
Options shall be exercisable at such time or times, or upon such event or events, and subject to such terms, conditions, performance criteria and restrictions as shall be determined by the Committee and set forth in the Award Agreement evidencing such Option; provided, however, that (a) no Option shall be exercisable after the expiration of ten (10) years after the effective date of grant of such Option, (b) no Incentive Stock Option granted to a Ten Percent Owner Participant shall be exercisable after the expiration of five (5) years after the effective date of grant of such Option, and (c) no Option granted to a prospective Employee, prospective Consultant or prospective Director may become exercisable prior to the date on which such person commences service with the Company. Subject to the foregoing, unless otherwise specified by the Committee in the grant of an Option, any Option granted hereunder shall terminate ten (10) years after the effective date of grant of the Option, unless earlier terminated in accordance with its provisions.
6.3 Payment of Exercise Price.
(a) Forms of Consideration Authorized. Except as otherwise provided below, payment of the exercise price for the number of shares of Stock being purchased pursuant to any Option shall be made (i) in cash, by check or cash equivalent; (ii) by tender to the Company, or attestation to the ownership, of shares of Stock owned by the Participant having a
Fair Market Value not less than the exercise price; (iii) subject to the Companys rights set forth in Section 6.3(b)(ii) below, by causing the Company to withhold from the shares of Stock issuable upon the exercise of the Option the number of whole shares of Stock having a Fair Market Value, as determined by the Company, not less than the exercise price (a Cashless Exercise); (iv) provided that the Participant is an Employee (unless otherwise not prohibited by law, including, without limitation, any regulation promulgated by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System) and in the Companys sole discretion at the time the Option is exercised, by delivery of the Participants promissory note in a form approved by the Company for the aggregate exercise price, provided that, if the Company is incorporated in the State of Delaware, the Participant shall pay in cash that portion of the aggregate exercise price not less than the par value of the shares being acquired; (v) by such other consideration as may be approved by the Committee from time to time to the extent permitted by applicable law; or (vi) by any combination thereof. The Committee may at any time or from time to time grant Options which do not permit all of the foregoing forms of consideration to be used in payment of the exercise price or which otherwise restrict one or more forms of consideration.
(b) Limitations on Forms of Consideration.
(i) Tender of Stock. Notwithstanding the foregoing, an Option may not be exercised by tender to the Company, or attestation to the ownership, of shares of Stock to the extent such tender or attestation would constitute a violation of the provisions of any law, regulation or agreement restricting the redemption of the Companys stock. Unless otherwise provided by the Committee, an Option may not be exercised by tender to the Company, or attestation to the ownership, of shares of Stock unless such shares either have been owned by the Participant for more than six (6) months (and not used for another Option exercise by attestation during such period) or were not acquired, directly or indirectly, from the Company.
(ii) Cashless Exercise. The Company reserves, at any and all times, the right, in the Companys sole and absolute discretion, to establish, decline to approve or terminate any program or procedures for the exercise of Options by means of a Cashless Exercise in order to comply with applicable law.
(iii) Payment by Promissory Note. No promissory note shall be permitted if the exercise of an Option using a promissory note would be a violation of any law, regulation or Company policy. Any permitted promissory note shall be on such terms as the Committee shall determine in its discretion. The Committee shall have the authority to permit or require the Participant to secure any promissory note used to exercise an Option with the shares of Stock acquired upon the exercise of the Option or with other collateral acceptable to the Company. Unless otherwise provided by the Committee, if the Company at any time is subject to the regulations promulgated by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System or any other governmental entity affecting the extension of credit in connection with the Companys securities, any promissory note shall comply with such applicable regulations, and the Participant shall pay the unpaid principal and accrued interest, if any, to the extent necessary to comply with such applicable regulations.
6.4 Effect of Termination of Service.
(a) Option Exercisability. Subject to earlier termination of the Option as otherwise provided herein and unless otherwise provided by the Committee in the grant of an Option and set forth in the Award Agreement, an Option shall be exercisable after a Participants termination of Service only during the applicable time period determined in accordance with this Section 6.4 and thereafter shall terminate:
(i) Disability or Death. If the Participants Service terminates because of the Disability or death of the Participant, the vested portion of an Option may be exercised by the Participant or the applicable of his guardian or legal representative or estate for a period of thirty (30) days after the date on which the Participants Service terminated, but in any event no later than the date of expiration of the Options term, which in no event shall exceed ten (10) years from the date of grant, as set forth in the Award Agreement evidencing such Option (the Option Expiration Date).
(ii) Change in Control. Upon a Change in Control after an Initial Public Offering, then (1) the vested portion of the Option, to the extent unexercised and exercisable on the date on which the Participants Service terminated, may be exercised by the Participant (or the Participants guardian or legal representative) at any time prior to the expiration of three (3) months after the date on which the Participants Service terminated without Cause, but in any event no later than the Option Expiration Date, and (2) the exercisability and vesting of the Option and any shares acquired upon the exercise thereof shall be accelerated effective as of the date on which the Participants Service terminated to such extent, if any, as shall have been determined by the Committee, in its discretion, and set forth in the Award Agreement evidencing such Option.
(iii) Termination for Cause. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Plan to the contrary, if the Participants Service with the Company is terminated for Cause, as defined by the Participants Award Agreement or contract of employment or service (or, if not defined in any of the foregoing, as defined in the Plan), the Option, whether or not vested, shall terminate and cease to be exercisable immediately upon such termination of Service.
(iv) Other Termination of Service. If the Participants Service with the Company terminates for any reason, except Disability, death, Termination After Change in Control, or Cause, the Option, to the extent unexercised and exercisable by the Participant on the date on which the Participants Service terminated, may be exercised by the Participant at any time prior to the expiration of three months (or such longer period of time as determined by the Committee, in its discretion) after the date on which the Participants Service terminated, but in any event no later than the Option Expiration Date.
(b) Extension if Exercise Prevented by Law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, other than termination for Cause, if the exercise of an Option within the applicable time periods set forth in Section 6.4(a) is prevented by the provisions of Section 11 below, the Option shall remain exercisable until thirty (30) days (or such longer period of time as determined by the Committee, in its discretion) after the date the Participant is notified by the Company that the Option is exercisable, but in any event no later than the Option Expiration Date.
(c) Extension if Participant Subject to Section 16(b). Notwithstanding the foregoing, other than termination for Cause, if a sale within the applicable time periods set forth in Section 6.4(a) of shares acquired upon the exercise of the Option would subject the Participant to suit under Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act, the Option (if exercisable) shall remain exercisable until the earliest to occur of (i) the tenth (10th) day following the date on which a sale of such shares by the Participant would no longer be subject to such suit, (ii) three (3) months after the Participants termination of Service, or (iii) the Option Expiration Date.
7.1 Award of Restricted Stock
(a) Grant. In consideration of the performance of employment or Service by any Participant who is an Employee, Consultant or Director, Stock may be awarded under the Plan by the Committee as Restricted Stock with such restrictions during the Restriction Period as the Committee may designate in its discretion, any of which restrictions may differ with respect to each particular Participant. Restricted Stock shall be awarded for no additional consideration or such additional consideration as the Committee may determine, which consideration may be equal to or more than the Fair Market Value of the shares of Restricted Stock on the grant date. The terms and conditions of each grant of Restricted Stock shall be evidenced by an Award Agreement.
(b) Immediate Transfer Without Immediate Delivery of Restricted Stock. Unless otherwise specified in the Participants Award Agreement, each Restricted Stock Award shall constitute an immediate transfer of the record and beneficial ownership of the shares of Restricted Stock to the Participant in consideration of the performance of services as an Employee, Consultant or Director, as applicable, entitling such Participant to all voting and other ownership rights in such shares of Stock.
As specified in the Award Agreement, a Restricted Stock Award may limit the Participants dividend and voting rights during the Restriction Period in which the shares of Restricted Stock are subject to a substantial risk of forfeiture (within the meaning given to such term under Code Section 83) and restrictions on transfer. In the Award Agreement, the Committee may apply any restrictions to the dividends that the Committee deems appropriate. In the event that any dividend constitutes a derivative security or an equity security pursuant to the rules under Section 16 of the Exchange Act, if applicable, such dividend shall be subject to a vesting period equal to the remaining vesting period of the shares of Restricted Stock with respect to which the dividend is paid.
Shares awarded pursuant to a grant of Restricted Stock may be issued in the name of the Participant and held, together with a stock power endorsed in blank, by the Committee or Company (or their delegates) or in trust or in escrow pursuant to an agreement satisfactory to the Committee, as determined by the Committee, until such time as the restrictions on transfer have expired. All such terms and conditions shall be set forth in the particular Participants Award
Agreement. The Company or Committee (or their delegates) shall issue to the Participant a receipt evidencing the certificates held by it which are registered in the name of the Participant.
(a) Forfeiture of Restricted Stock. Restricted Stock awarded to a Participant may be subject to the following restrictions until the expiration of the Restriction Period: (i) a restriction that constitutes a substantial risk of forfeiture (as defined in Code Section 83), or a restriction on transferability; (ii) unless otherwise specified by the Committee in the Award Agreement, the Restricted Stock that is subject to restrictions which are not satisfied shall be forfeited and all rights of the Participant to such Shares shall terminate; and (iii) any other restrictions that the Committee determines in advance are appropriate, including, without limitation, rights of repurchase or first refusal in the Company or provisions subjecting the Restricted Stock to a continuing substantial risk of forfeiture in the hands of any transferee. Any such restrictions shall be set forth in the particular Participants Award Agreement.
(b) Issuance of Certificates. Reasonably promptly after the date of grant with respect to shares of Restricted Stock, the Company shall cause to be issued a Stock certificate, registered in the name of the Participant to whom such shares of Restricted Stock were granted, evidencing such shares; provided, however, that the Company shall not cause to be issued such a Stock certificate unless it has received a Stock power duly endorsed in blank with respect to such shares of Restricted Stock. Each such stock certificate shall bear the following legend or any other legend approved by the Company:
The transferability of this certificate and the shares of stock represented hereby are subject to the restrictions, terms and conditions (including forfeiture and restrictions against transfer) contained in the Livongo Health, Inc. 2008 Stock Incentive Plan and an Award Agreement entered into between the registered owner of such shares and Livongo Health, Inc. A copy of the Plan and Award Agreement are on file in the corporate offices of Livongo Health, Inc.
Such legend shall not be removed from the certificate evidencing such shares of Restricted Stock until such shares vest pursuant to the terms of the Award Agreement.
(c) Removal of Restrictions. The Committee, in its discretion, shall have the authority to remove any or all of the restrictions on the Restricted Stock if it determines that, by reason of a change in applicable law or another change in circumstance arising after the grant date of the Restricted Stock, such action is appropriate.
7.3 Delivery of Shares of Common Stock
Subject to withholding taxes under Section 8 and to the terms of the Award Agreement, a Stock certificate evidencing the shares of Restricted Stock with respect to which the restrictions in the Award Agreement have been satisfied shall be delivered to the Participant or other appropriate recipient free of restrictions. Such delivery shall be effected for all purposes when the Company shall have deposited such certificate in the United States mail, addressed to the Participant or other appropriate recipient.
OTHER STOCK-BASED AWARDS
8.1 Grant of Other Stock-Based Awards
Other Stock-Based Awards may be awarded by the Committee to selected Participants that are denominated or payable in, valued in whole or in part by reference to, or otherwise related to, shares of Stock, as deemed by the Committee to be consistent with the purposes of the Plan and the goals of the Company. Types of Other Stock-Based Awards include, without limitation, purchase rights, phantom stock, Stock appreciation rights, restricted units, shares of Stock awarded which are not subject to any restrictions or conditions, convertible or exchangeable debentures, other rights convertible into shares of Stock, Awards valued by reference to the value of securities of, or the performance of, the Company or a specified Subsidiary, division or department, and settlement in cancellation of rights of any person with a vested interest in any other plan, fund, program or arrangement that is or was sponsored, maintained or participated in by the Company or any Subsidiary. Other Stock-Based Awards may be awarded either alone or in addition to or in tandem with any other Awards.
8.2 Other Stock-Based Award Terms
(a) Written Agreement. The terms and conditions of each grant of an Other Stock-Based Award shall be evidenced by an Award Agreement.
(b) Purchase Price. Except to the extent that an Other Stock-Based Award is granted in substitution for an outstanding Award or is delivered upon exercise of an Option, the amount of consideration required to be received by the Company shall be either (i) no consideration other than services actually rendered (in the case of authorized and unissued shares) or to be rendered, or (ii) in the case of an Other Stock-Based Award in the nature of a purchase right, consideration (other than services rendered or to be rendered) at least equal to fifty percent (50%) of the Fair Market Value of the Shares covered by such grant on the date of grant (or such percentage higher than 50% that is required by any applicable tax or securities law). To the extent that a stock appreciation right is intended to be exempt from Code Section 409A, the exercise price per share of Stock shall not be less than one hundred percent (100%) of Fair Market Value of a share of Stock on the date of the grant of the Stock appreciation right and shall otherwise comply with Code Section 409A.
(c) Performance Criteria and Other Terms. In its discretion, the Committee may specify such criteria, periods or goals for vesting in Other Stock-Based Awards and payment thereof to the Participant as it shall determine; and the extent to which such criteria, periods or goals have been met shall be determined by the Committee. All terms and conditions of Other Stock-Based Awards shall be determined by the Committee and set forth in the Award Agreement.
(d) Payment. Other Stock-Based Awards may be paid in shares of Stock, cash or other consideration or a combination thereof related to such shares, in a single payment
or in installments on such dates as determined by the Committee, all as specified in the Award Agreement.
(e) Dividends. The Participant of an Other Stock-Based Award shall not be entitled to receive, currently or on a deferred basis, dividends or dividend equivalents with respect to the number of Shares covered by the Other Stock-Based Award, unless (and to the extent) otherwise as determined by the Committee and set forth in a separate Award Agreement. The Committee may also provide in such Incentive Agreement that the amounts of any dividends or dividend equivalent shall be deemed to have been reinvested in additional Shares of Common Stock.
9.1 Tax Withholding
All Awards are subject to and, the Company shall have the power and the right to deduct or withhold, or require a Participant to remit to the Company, an amount sufficient to satisfy federal, state, and local taxes, domestic or foreign, required by law or regulation to be withheld with respect to any taxable event arising as a result of the Plan or an Award hereunder and all Awards are subject to the Companys right hereunder.
9.2 Withholding Methods
With respect to tax withholding required upon the exercise of Options, upon the lapse of restrictions on Restricted Stock, or upon any other taxable event arising as a result of any Awards, Participants may elect, subject to the approval of the Committee in its discretion, to satisfy the withholding requirement, in whole or in part, by (i) paying cash, check, or other cash equivalents, (ii) electing to have the Company withhold shares of stock having a fair market value equal to the statutory amount required to be withheld, (or such greater amount as the Committee may determine), (iii) delivering to the Company already-owned shares of Stock having a fair market value equal to the statutory amount required to be withheld (or such greater amount as the Committee may determine), provided the delivery of such shares of Stock will not result in any adverse accounting consequences, as the Committee determines in its sole discretion, (iv) selling a sufficient number of shares of Stock otherwise deliverable to the Participant through such means as the Committee may determine in its sole discretion (whether through a broker or otherwise) equal to the amount required to be withheld, or (v) any combination of the foregoing methods of payment. All such elections shall be made in writing, signed by the Participant, and shall be subject to any restrictions or limitations that the Committee, in its discretion, deems appropriate. Any fraction of a share of Stock required to satisfy such obligation shall be disregarded and the amount due shall instead be paid in cash by the Participant. The amount of the withholding requirement will be deemed to include any amount which the Committee agrees may be withheld at the time the election is made, not to exceed the amount determined by using the maximum federal, state or local marginal income tax rates applicable to the Participant with respect to the Award on the date that the amount of tax to be withheld is to be determined or such greater amount as the Committee may determine if such
amount would not have adverse accounting consequences, as the Committee determines in its sole discretion. The fair market value of the shares of Stock to be withheld or delivered will be determined as of the date that the taxes are required to be withheld.
9.3 Incentive Stock Options
With respect to shares of Stock received by a Participant pursuant to the exercise of an Incentive Stock Option, if such Participant disposes of any such shares within (i) two (2) years from the date of grant of such Option or (ii) one (1) year after the transfer of such shares to the Participant, the Company shall have the right to withhold from any salary, wages or other compensation payable by the Company to the Participant an amount sufficient to satisfy federal, state and local tax withholding requirements attributable to such disqualifying disposition.
PROVISION OF INFORMATION
Each Participant shall be given access to information concerning the Company equivalent to that information generally made available to the Companys common stockholders.
COMPLIANCE WITH SECURITIES LAW
AND OTHER APPLICABLE LAWS
The Plan, Award Agreements, the grant of Awards and the issuance of shares of Stock shall be subject to compliance with all applicable requirements of federal, state and foreign law with respect to securities and all other applicable laws, regulations and requirements of any stock exchange or market system upon which the stock is listed or traded. Options may not be exercised and Stock may not be issued if the issuance of shares of Stock would constitute a violation of any applicable federal, state or foreign securities laws or other law or regulations or the requirements of any stock exchange or market system upon which the Stock may then be listed. In addition, no Option may be exercised and no shares of Stock may be issued unless (a) a registration statement under the Securities Act shall at the time be in effect with respect to the shares issuable or (b) in the opinion of legal counsel to the Company, the shares issuable may be issued in accordance with the terms of an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act. If the shares of Stock issuable pursuant to an Award are not registered under the Securities Act of 1933, the Company may imprint on the certificate for such shares the following legend or any other legend which counsel for the Company considers necessary or advisable to comply with the Securities Act of 1933:
THE SHARES OF STOCK REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933 OR UNDER THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATE AND MAY NOT BE SOLD OR TRANSFERRED EXCEPT UPON SUCH REGISTRATION OR UPON RECEIPT BY THE COMPANY OF AN OPINION OF COUNSEL SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY, IN FORM AND
SUBSTANCE SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY, THAT REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED FOR SUCH SALE OR TRANSFER.
The inability of the Company to obtain from any regulatory body having jurisdiction the authority, if any, deemed by the Companys legal counsel to be necessary to the lawful issuance and sale of any shares hereunder shall relieve the Company of any liability in respect of the failure to issue or sell such shares as to which such requisite authority shall not have been obtained. As a condition to the exercise of any Option or the issuance of shares of Stock, the Company may require the Participant to satisfy any qualifications that may be necessary or appropriate, to evidence compliance with any applicable law or regulation and to make any representation or warranty with respect thereto as may be requested by the Company.
NONTRANSFERABILITY OF AWARDS
During the lifetime of the Participant, an Award shall be exercisable only by the Participant or the Participants guardian or legal representative. An Award may be assignable or transferable by the Participant only by will or by the laws of descent and distribution or pursuant to a qualified domestic relations order as defined in Section 414(p) of the Code, and only if it is so specified in the Award Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent permitted by the Committee in the Award Agreement, and in accordance with applicable law, in its discretion, and set forth in the Award Agreement evidencing such Option, a Nonstatutory Stock Option shall be assignable or transferable subject to the applicable limitations, if any, described in Rule 701 under the Securities Act, and the General Instructions to Form S-8 Registration Statement under the Securities Act.
Unless expressly provided otherwise in the Award Agreement, (i) the Participants service with the Company terminates for any reason and (ii) within one year after such termination, the Participant breaches any of the terms and conditions of, or fails to perform its obligations under, a noncompetition agreement without written consent of the Company, the Participants right to exercise an Option will terminate and all rights hereunder will cease; provided that in the event the Participant has sold or otherwise disposed of the shares of Stock received upon the exercise of the Option or upon vesting of Restricted Stock, the Company has the right to be paid, and the Participant must pay to the Company, an amount equal to the proceeds received by the Participant upon such disposition; provided, further that in the event the Participant has exercised the Option or become vested in Restricted Stock but has not sold or otherwise disposed of the shares of Stock received, the Participant shall forfeit all such shares of Stock and return such shares to the Company.
TERMINATION OR AMENDMENT OF PLAN
The Committee may terminate or amend the Plan at any time. However, subject to changes in applicable law, regulations or rules that would permit otherwise, without the approval of the Companys stockholders, there shall be (a) no increase in the maximum aggregate number of shares of Stock that may be issued under the Plan (except by operation of the provisions of Section 4.2), (b) no change in the class of persons eligible to receive Incentive Stock Options, and (c) no other amendment of the Plan that would require approval of the Companys stockholders under any applicable law, regulation or rule. No termination or amendment of the Plan shall affect any then outstanding Award unless expressly provided by the Committee. In any event, no termination or amendment of the Plan may adversely affect any then outstanding Award without the consent of the Participant, unless such termination or amendment is required to enable an Award designated as an Incentive Stock Option to qualify as an Incentive Stock Option or is necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation or rule.
The Plan is adopted by the Board as of the Effective Date and shall be approved by the stockholders of the Company on or within twelve (12) months of the date of adoption thereof by the Board. Any increase in the maximum number of shares of Stock that may be issued as provided in Section 4.1 (Authorized Shares) and any amendment to the requirements as to the class of Employees eligible to purchase Stock under the Plan or to extend the term of the Plan or any other amendment requiring stockholder approval under applicable law shall be subject to stockholder approval within the time period required by applicable law. Options granted prior to shareholder approval of the Plan or in excess of the Authorized Shares previously approved by the stockholders shall become exercisable no earlier than the date of shareholder approval of the Plan or such increase in the Authorized Shares, as the case may be.
NO GUARANTEE OF TAX CONSEQUENCES
Neither the Company, the Board nor the Committee makes any commitment or guarantee that any federal, state or local tax treatment will apply or be available to any person participating or eligible to participate hereunder.
In the event that any provision of this Plan shall be held illegal, invalid or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be fully severable, but shall not affect the remaining
provisions of the Plan, and the Plan shall be construed and enforced as if the illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision was not included herein.
The Plan shall be interpreted, construed and constructed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to its conflicts of law provisions, except as may be superseded by applicable laws of the United States.
All obligations of the Company under the Plan with respect to Incentive Awards granted hereunder shall be binding on any successor to the Company, whether the existence of such successor is the result of a direct or indirect purchase, merger, consolidation, or otherwise, of all or substantially all of the business and/or assets of the Company.
RIGHTS AS A SHAREHOLDER
The holder of an Award shall have no rights as a shareholder with respect to any shares covered by the Award until the date of issue of a stock certificate to him or her for such shares. Except as otherwise expressly provided in the Plan, no adjustment shall be made for dividends or other rights for which the record date is prior to the date such stock certificate is issued.
NO SPECIAL EMPLOYMENT OR SERVICE RIGHTS
Nothing contained in the Plan or Award Agreement shall confer upon any Participant receiving a grant of any Award any right with respect to the continuation of his or her Service with the Company (or any Affiliate) or interfere in any way with the right of the Company (or Affiliate), subject to the terms of any separate employment agreement to the contrary, at any time to terminate such Service or to increase or decrease the compensation of the Participant from the rate in existence at the time of the grant of any Award.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned Secretary of the Company certifies that the foregoing sets forth the Livongo Health, Inc. Amended and Restated 2008 Stock Incentive Plan as duly adopted by the Board.

(iv) If all of the Shares proposed in the Notice to be Transferred are not purchased by the Company and/or its assignee(s) as provided in this Section 11(a), then the Holder may sell or otherwise Transfer such unpurchased Shares to that Proposed Transferee at the Offered Price or at a higher price, provided that such sale or other Transfer is consummated within one hundred twenty (120) days after the date of the Notice and provided further that any such sale or other Transfer is effected in accordance with any applicable securities laws and the Proposed Transferee agrees in writing that the provisions of this Section shall continue to apply to the Shares in the hands of such Proposed Transferee. If the Shares described in the Notice are not Transferred to the Proposed Transferee within such 120-day period, a new Notice shall be given to the Company, and the Company and/or its assignees shall again be offered the Right of First Refusal as provided herein before any Shares held by the Holder may be sold or otherwise Transferred.

(b) Companys Repurchase Right. Upon the termination of Service of Optionee, at the discretion of the Committee, all or a portion of the Stock held by Participant in connection with the exercise of this Option shall be subject to repurchase by the Company upon written notice to Optionee (or his or her representative or permitted transferee, as the case may be) of the Companys election to repurchase such Stock within 120 days from the date of termination of Service. Upon such repurchase by the Company, the price per share paid to Optionee will be the Fair Market Value as of the date of repurchase, as determined by the Committee in good faith.

The underwriters in connection with the IPO are intended third-party beneficiaries of this subsection and shall have the right, power and authority to enforce the provisions hereof as though they were a party hereto. Optionee further agrees to execute such agreements as may be reasonably requested by the underwriters in the IPO that are consistent with this subsection or that are necessary to give further effect thereto.

The Optionee hereby agrees that this option is granted and accepted subject to such condition and understanding.
16. Binding Effect
This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties hereto and, to the extent provided in the Plan and herein, to their respective heirs, executors, administrators, successors, and assigns. Optionee may not assign any of his or her rights or obligations under this Agreement except to the extent and in the manner expressly permitted hereunder.

Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement will be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect under any applicable law or rule in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability will not affect any other provision or any other jurisdiction, but this Agreement will be reformed, construed and enforced in such jurisdiction as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision had never been contained herein.
20. Complete Agreement

22. Independent Legal and Tax Advice; Section 409A of the Code
Optionee acknowledges that the Company has advised Optionee to obtain independent legal and tax advice regarding the grant and exercise of the Option and the acquisition of any shares acquired thereby. Optionee and the Company acknowledge that this option is intended to be exempt from Section 409A of the Code, with the Exercise Price intended to be at least equal to the fair market value per share of Stock on the Date of Grant. Since shares are not traded on an established securities market, the exercise price has been based upon the determination of Fair Market Value by the Committee in a manner consistent with the terms of the Plan. Optionee acknowledges that there is no guarantee that the Internal Revenue Service will agree with this valuation, and agrees not to make any claim against the Company, the Board, the Committee, or the Companys officers or employees in the event that the Internal Revenue Service asserts that the valuation was too low or that the option is not otherwise exempt from Section 409A of the Code.
23. Governing Law
This Agreement shall be construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to the principles of conflicts of law thereof.
In the event of any conflict between the provisions of the Plan and the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the provisions of the Plan shall govern for all purposes.
