PERFORMANCE STOCK UNIT AWARD AGREEMENT
Pursuant to the Performance Stock Unit Award Grant Notice (the “Grant Notice”) to which this Performance Stock Unit Award Agreement (this “Agreement”) is attached, Maxar Technologies Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), has granted to the Participant the number of performance stock units (“Performance Stock Units” or “PSUs”) set forth in the Grant Notice under the Company’s 2019 Incentive Award Plan, as amended from time to time (the “Plan”). Each Performance Stock Unit represents the right to receive a number of shares of Common Stock (each, a “Share”) based on the Company’s achievement of certain performance goals. Capitalized terms not specifically defined herein shall have the meanings specified in the Plan and Grant Notice.
1.1Incorporation of Terms of Plan. The PSUs are subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan, which are incorporated herein by reference. In the event of any inconsistency between the Plan and this Agreement, the terms of the Plan shall control.
GRANT OF PERFORMANCE STOCK UNITS
2.1Grant of PSUs. Pursuant to the Grant Notice and upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Plan and this Agreement, effective as of the Grant Date set forth in the Grant Notice, the Company hereby grants to the Participant an award of PSUs under the Plan in consideration of the Participant’s past and/or continued employment with or service to the Company or any Subsidiaries and for other good and valuable consideration.
2.2Unsecured Obligation to PSUs. Each PSU constitutes the right to receive a number of Shares upon vesting, as determined in accordance with Section 2.3 and 2.6 below. Unless and until the PSUs have vested in the manner set forth in Article 2 hereof, the Participant will have no right to receive Common Stock under any such PSUs. Prior to actual payment of any vested PSUs, such PSUs will represent an unsecured obligation of the Company, payable (if at all) only from the general assets of the Company.
2.3Vesting Schedule; Change in Control.
(a)Subject to Section 2.5 hereof, the PSUs shall vest and become nonforfeitable with respect to the applicable portion thereof in accordance with Exhibit B to the Grant Notice and this Section 2.3.
(b)Notwithstanding Section 2.3(a), if a Change in Control occurs and at least one of the two circumstances described in clauses (i) and (ii) below occurs (the date of either such event, the “Early Measurement Date”), then such number of PSUs will become immediately vested and earned on such Early Measurement Date as is determined in this Section 2.3(b). For purposes of this Agreement, an Early Measurement Date will occur on the earlier to occur of:
(i)upon a Change in Control, the surviving corporation or successor fails to continue or assume the obligations with respect to the PSUs or fails to provide for the conversion or replacement of the PSUs with an equivalent award; or
(ii)in the event that the PSUs are continued, assumed, converted or replaced as contemplated in Section 2.3(b)(i), during the one-year period following the effective date of a Change in Control, the Participant incurs a Termination of Service without Cause or for Good Reason.
In the event of the occurrence of an Early Measurement Date, such number of PSUs shall vest on such Early Measurement Date as is equal to the greater of: (i) such number of PSUs as would vest based on the TSR Achievement Factor and the Overall ACL Achievement Factor as determined as of the Early Measurement Date in accordance with Exhibit B; or (ii) a prorated number of the Target Number of PSUs set forth in the Grant Notice based on (A) the number of days elapsed in the period commencing January 1, 2021 through the Early Measurement Date, divided by (B) 1,095.
(c)For purposes of Section 2.3, the obligations with respect to the PSUs will be considered to have been converted or replaced with an equivalent award by the surviving corporation or successor (or an affiliate thereof), if each of the following conditions are met, which determination will be made solely in the discretionary judgment of the Administrator (as constituted immediately prior to the Change in Control), which determination may be made in advance of the effective date of a particular Change in Control:
(i)the converted or replaced award preserves the existing value of the PSUs being replaced, and contains provisions for scheduled vesting and treatment on Termination of Service (including the definition of Cause and Good Reason) that are no less favorable to the Participant than the PSUs being replaced; and
(ii)the security represented by the converted or replaced award is of a class that is publicly held and widely traded on an established U.S. national stock exchange unless otherwise determined by the Administrator.
2.4Consideration to the Company. In consideration of the grant of the award of PSUs pursuant hereto, the Participant agrees to render faithful and efficient services to the Company or any Subsidiary.
2.5Forfeiture, Termination and Cancellation upon Termination of Service. Subject to Section 2.3(b), upon the Participant’s Termination of Service for any or no reason, all Performance Stock Units which have not vested prior to or in connection with such Termination of Service shall thereupon automatically be forfeited, terminated and cancelled as of the applicable termination date without payment of any consideration by the Company, and the Participant, or the Participant’s beneficiary or personal representative, as the case may be, shall have no further rights hereunder. Further, notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in the event that the TSR Achievement Factor and/or the Overall ACL Achievement Factor as of the Determination Date is zero, the PSUs eligible to vest based on the applicable Achievement Factor will thereupon be automatically forfeited by the Participant without payment of any consideration therefor, and the Participant, or the Participant’s beneficiary or personal representative, as the case may be, shall have no further rights hereunder. No portion of the PSUs which has not become vested as of the date on which the Participant incurs a Termination of Service shall thereafter become vested.
2.6Settlement upon Vesting.
(a)As soon as administratively practicable following the vesting of any Performance Stock Units pursuant to Section 2.3 hereof, but in no event later than March 15 of the calendar year following the Measurement Date (as defined in Exhibit B) (for the avoidance of doubt, this deadline is intended to comply with the “short term deferral” exemption from Section 409A of the Code), the Company shall deliver to the Participant (or any transferee permitted under Section 3.2 hereof) a number of Shares equal to the number of vested PSUs as determined in accordance with Exhibit B. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event Shares cannot be issued pursuant to Section 10.4 of the Plan, the Shares shall be issued pursuant to the preceding sentence as soon as administratively practicable after the Administrator determines that Shares can again be issued in accordance with such Section.
(b)As set forth in Section 10.2 of the Plan, the Company shall have the authority and the right to deduct or withhold, or to require the Participant to remit to the Company, an amount sufficient to satisfy all applicable federal, state and local taxes required by law to be withheld with respect to any taxable event arising in connection with the Performance Stock Units. The Company shall not be obligated to deliver any Shares to the Participant or the Participant’s legal representative unless and until the Participant or the Participant’s legal representative shall have paid or otherwise satisfied in full the amount of all federal, state and local taxes applicable to the taxable income of the Participant resulting from the grant or vesting of the Performance Stock Units or the issuance of Shares.

No adjustment shall be made for a dividend or other right for which the record date is prior to the date the Shares are issued, except as provided in Section 12.2 of the Plan.

3.11Amendment, Suspension and Termination. To the extent permitted by the Plan, this Agreement may be wholly or partially amended or otherwise modified, suspended or terminated at any time or from time to time by the Administrator or the Board; provided, however, that, except as may otherwise be provided by the Plan, no amendment, modification, suspension or termination of this Agreement shall adversely affect the PSUs in any material way without the prior written consent of the Participant.

To the extent permitted by Applicable Law, this Agreement shall be deemed amended to the extent necessary to conform to such applicable exemptive rule.
3.14Not a Contract of Service Relationship. Nothing in this Agreement or in the Plan shall confer upon Participant any right to continue to serve as an employee or other service provider of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or interfere with or restrict in any way with the right of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, which rights are hereby expressly reserved, to discharge or to terminate for any reason whatsoever, with or without cause, the services of the Participant’s at any time.

Neither the Plan nor any underlying program, in and of itself, has any assets. The Participant shall have only the rights of a general unsecured creditor of the Company and its Subsidiaries with respect to amounts credited and benefits payable, if any, with respect to the PSUs, and rights no greater than the right to receive the Common Stock as a general unsecured creditor with respect to PSUs, as and when payable hereunder.
