Your starting annualized base salary will be $[●], less applicable taxes, deductions, and withholdings. You will be paid semi-monthly on the company’s regularly scheduled paydays.

In addition, you will be eligible to participate in Model N’s performance bonus plan at an annualized target bonus of [●]% of your base salary based on specific company and personal objectives. During the current fiscal year, your eligibility for a performance bonus will be prorated based on your start date.

Should you choose to voluntarily terminate your employment with Model N prior to your one-year anniversary, you will be required to reimburse Model N a prorated share of the sign-on bonus, based on length of employment.

Model N leadership will recommend to the Compensation Committee of our Board of Directors that you be granted Restricted Stock Units (RSUs) with a value of $[●] and Performance-Based RSUs (PB- RSUs) with a value of $[●]. The number of shares will be determined based on the average closing price of the month of hire. RSUs vest over a four-year period with 25% vesting on the first annual anniversary of the 15th day of the second month of the quarter of your start date and 6.25% vesting quarterly thereafter. The performance measurement for PB-RSUs are 2- and 3-year relative TSR goals based on the Russell 3000 index. Subject to performance, earned PB-RSU shares vest 50% after year 2 and 50% after year 3 with a maximum payout up to 200% of target for each performance period. The performance period begins [DATE]. You will receive further information following approval of the grant.

As a Model N executive, you will be eligible to enter into our standard Change in Control and Severance Agreement and be expected to sign and comply with an employee proprietary information and invention agreement which requires, among other provisions, confidentiality,

the assignment of patent rights to any invention made during your employment at Model N and non-disclosure of proprietary information.

While you are employed by Model N, you will also not assist any person or organization in competing with Model N, in preparing to compete with Model N, or in hiring any employees of Model N.

A significant part of your total compensation is derived from benefits Model N provides. Model N provides a comprehensive benefits package for its eligible employees. Summary details of these plans will be sent separately.
