(g) If a Participant Terminates Service after the Performance Period due to death, the Participant’s Beneficiary shall be entitled to the greater of the following: (i) the payment under such Performance Units as if targeted performance had been achieved and the Performance Period ended on the date of the Participant’s death, or (ii) the amount represented by the Participant’s Performance Units that remain outstanding as if Participant had not Terminated Service.

•Return on Average Tangible Common Equity (ROATCE)
Definitions Related to ROATCE Performance Factor
Old National’s Return on Average Common Tangible Equity (ROATCE): ROATCE is defined as Adjusted Full Year Net Income divided by Full Year Average Tangible Common Equity.
Old National’s Adjusted Full Year Net Income: Net income as reported in the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023 adjusted to add back intangible amortization net of tax at the federal statutory for 2023, exclude all GAAP charges that are non-recurring net of tax at the incremental rate used for Old National’s Executive Short-Term Incentive Plan for 2023, and exclude merger charges, facility termination charges and severance charges net of tax at the incremental rate used for Old National’s Executive Short-Term Incentive Plan for 2023.

Performance Weighting Fraction
“Performance Weighting Fraction” means the relative importance of each performance measure in evaluating performance and determining the number of Shares to be distributed (before any Dividend Adjustment or tax withholding) with respect to each Performance Share. The following weight has been assigned to the performance factor:
Calculation of Performance
For the Performance Factor, the performance level will be calculated by a third party agent (not owned or controlled by the Company) and determined at the end of the Performance Period.
The performance level will then be multiplied by the Performance Weighting Fraction, resulting in the Company's Performance Level.
In order for Shares to be issued with respect to each Performance Share, the Company’s ROATCE performance level for the Performance Period must equal or exceed 8.50%.
If the Company’s ROATCE performance level for the Performance Period is greater than or equal to 8.50% but less than 17.61%, the Company’s ROATCE percentile rank in the Peer Group will be determined by interpolating the Company’s percentile ranking between the peers immediately above and below the Company, based on differences in ROATCE, to determine the percentage, if any, of the Shares earned under the Performance Share award. The Company is excluded from the Peer Group for purposes of the calculation.
If the ROATCE performance level is for the Performance Period is greater than 17.61%, then Maximum Performance is achieved; and 150% of the Shares shall be issued with respect to each Performance Share.
The table below shows the percentage of Shares to be issued with respect to each Performance Share (before any Dividend Adjustment or tax withholding) at various performance levels.
The Company’s ROATCE
Percentile Rank vs. Peer Group
|% of Shares Earned||Performance Level|
|80% and above||150.0%||Maximum|
Timing of Award Determination and Distribution
Once performance results for the Company are known and approved by the auditors, the Committee will review and approve the final performance results for the Performance Factor. The Committee reserves the right to use negative discretion to reduce the amount of any payment. The Shares will be distributed in accordance with the timing set forth in Section 4(c) of this Agreement.
