ROATCE PERFORMANCE UNITS AWARD AGREEMENT
This ROATCE Performance Units Award Agreement (including any and all Appendices hereto, this “Award Agreement”) is entered into as of March 2, 2022 ("Grant Date"), by and between Old National Bancorp, an Indiana corporation (the “Company”), and [[FIRSTNAME]] [[LASTNAME]], an officer or employee of the Company or one of its Affiliates (the “Participant”).
A. The Company adopted the Old National Bancorp Amended and Restated 2008 Incentive Compensation Plan, as amended (the “Plan”) to further the growth and financial success of the Company and its Affiliates by aligning the interests of participating officers and key employees ("participants") more closely with those of the Company's shareholders, to provide participants with an additional incentive to excel in performing services for the Company and its Affiliates and to promote teamwork among participants.
B. The Company believes that the goals of the Plan can be achieved by granting Performance Units (as defined in the Plan) to eligible officers and other key employees.
C. The Talent Development and Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Company’s Board has determined that a grant of Performance Units to the Participant, as provided in this Award Agreement, is in the best interests of the Company and its Affiliates and furthers the purposes of the Plan.
D. The Participant wishes to accept the Company's grant of Performance Units set forth herein, subject to the terms and conditions of this Award Agreement and the Plan, and also wishes to confirm his or her acknowledgement and acceptance of the Company’s Stock Ownership Guidelines (as defined in Section 8 hereof) and Bonus Recoupment/Clawback Policy, as the same may be amended by the Company from time to time.

2. Incorporation of Plan Terms; Plan Governs. All provisions of the Plan, including definitions (to the extent that a different definition is not provided in this Award Agreement), are incorporated herein by reference and expressly made a part of this Award Agreement. The Participant hereby acknowledges that he or she has received a copy of the Plan. In the event of any conflict between any terms of this Award Agreement (before giving effect to any such incorporation of any Plan provisions) and any provisions of the Plan, the Plan provisions will govern and take precedence over any conflicting terms of this Award Agreement.
3. Award of ROATCE Performance Units. The Committee has awarded the Participant [[SHARESGRANTED]] ROATCE Performance Units effective as of the Grant Date, conditioned on and subject to the terms and conditions of this Award Agreement and the Plan (the “Target ROATCE Performance Units”).
4. Performance Goals and Achievement Determination

Following the end of the Performance Period and after completion of the audit of the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of and for the last full calendar year of the Performance Period, the Committee will determine and certify whether and, if so, at what level the Performance Goals have been achieved and, in accordance with Appendix A, the number of ROATCE Performance Units or percentage relative to the Target ROATCE Performance Units that would result from that achievement under this Award Agreement (“Achieved ROATCE Performance Units”).
5. Contingent Rights to any Share Distributions on Account of Performance Units
(a) Conditional ROATCE Performance Unit Award. Except as otherwise provided in Section 7(a) or this Section 5, no ROATCE Performance Units will vest or otherwise be deemed earned, and no distributions of Shares will be made (and no entitlement to the same will apply), unless and until (i) the respective Minimum Performance is achieved or exceeded in accordance with the Performance Goal set out in Appendix A, as certified by the Committee in accordance with Section 4(b), and (ii) the Participant (A) is continually employed by the Company or an Affiliate at all times from the award of the ROATCE Performance Units until the Regular Vesting Date (as defined in Section 6(g)); provided, however, the Committee may, in its discretion, waive the continuous employment requirement in this clause (ii), or (B) Terminates Service on account of his death, Disability, or Retirement during the Performance Period or between the end of the Performance Period and the Regular Vesting Date, as provided in this Section 5.
(b) Participant Disability or Retirement. If the Participant Terminates Service on account of the Participant’s Disability or Retirement occurring either during the Performance Period or between the end of the Performance Period and the Regular Vesting Date, the Participant’s ROATCE Performance Units shall remain outstanding as if the Participant had not Terminated Service, and payments via Share distributions with respect to such ROATCE Performance Units shall be made as of the same Regular Vesting Date and subject to the same Performance Goal requirements as payments that are made to participants who did not incur a Termination of Service during the applicable Performance Period.
(c) Participant Death during Performance Period. If the Participant Terminates Service due to death during the Performance Period, the performance requirements with respect to the Participant’s ROATCE Performance Units shall lapse and, on the date of such Termination of Service, the Participant’s Beneficiary shall be fully entitled to payment in Shares with respect to such Performance Units, determined as if Target Performance had been achieved and the Performance Period ended on the date of the Participant’s death. Such payments via distribution of Shares shall be made within sixty (60) days after the Participant’s death.
(d) Participant Death after Performance Period. If the Participant Terminates Service after the end of the Performance Period due to death, the Participant’s Beneficiary shall be entitled to the greater of the following: (i) an Unadjusted Share Distribution Amount in respect of the ROATCE Performance Units covered by this Award Agreement determined as if Target Performance had been achieved and the Performance Period had ended on the date of the Participant’s death, or (ii) an Unadjusted Share Distribution Amount in respect of the ROATCE Performance Units covered by this Award Agreement, determined as set forth in Section 6(b) and Appendix A as if the Participant had not Terminated Service before the Regular Vesting Date due to his or her death and such ROATCE Performance Units remained outstanding. Any payment in Shares under this Section 5(d) shall be made at the same Regular Vesting Date as Share distributions are made in respect of other ROATCE Performance Units granted on the same Grant Date as shown on Appendix A to participants who did not incur a Termination of Service during the applicable Performance Period.
6. Determination and Timing of Any Share Distributions
(a) Distributions in Shares. All payments on account of any Achieved ROATCE Performance Units shall be made in the form of whole shares of the Company’s voting common stock (“Shares”) distributed to the Participant as provided in this Award Agreement. Any such Share distributions may be made via the Company’s establishment of a book entry account for such Shares in the name of the Participant.
(b) Determination of Unadjusted Share Distribution Amount. Any Unadjusted Share Distribution Amount shall be calculated on a one-for-one basis relative to the number of Achieved ROATCE Performance Units,
if any. By way of examples, (i) if Target Performance for the Performance Period is achieved but not exceeded with respect to the Performance Goal, 100% of the Target ROATCE Performance Units will be deemed to be Achieved ROATCE Performance Units and the Unadjusted Share Distribution Amount will consist of one share of the Company's voting common stock for each of such Target ROATCE Performance Units; and (ii) if Maximum Performance or greater for the Performance Period is achieved with respect to the Performance Goal, 200% of the Target ROATCE Performance Units will be deemed to be Achieved ROATCE Performance Units and the Unadjusted Share Distribution Amount will consist of one Share for each of such Achieved ROATCE Performance Units.
(c) Determination of Adjusted Share Distribution Amount. Except as otherwise provided for in this Award Agreement, a Dividend Equivalent Adjustment shall be added to the Unadjusted Share Distribution Amount in order to determine the number of Shares constituting the Adjusted Share Distribution Amount. The Dividend Equivalent Adjustment shall be a number of ROATCE Performance Units equal to the number of ROATCE Performance Units that would have resulted if each cash dividend paid during the Performance Period on the Shares included in the Unadjusted Share Distribution Amount had been reinvested in Shares.
(d) Reduction for Applicable Tax Withholding. After calculating the Adjusted Share Distribution Amount, the number of Shares to be distributed on account of the Achieved ROATCE Performance Units shall be reduced by applicable tax withholdings as provided in Section 10 of this Award Agreement and Article XV of the Plan.
(e) Rounding Down to Avoid Fractional Shares. If, after deducting Shares from the Adjusted Share Distribution Amount sufficient to cover applicable tax withholdings, the Participant would be entitled to a fractional Share as part of any distribution of Shares, the net number of Shares distributable to the Participant under this Award Agreement shall be rounded down to the next whole number of Shares.
(f) Retained Committee Discretion. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Award Agreement, the Committee may, in its sole discretion, reduce or increase the number of Shares that may be distributed as determined pursuant to the Adjusted Share Distribution Amount calculation set forth above. The preceding sentence shall not apply to reduce a distribution made pursuant to Section 7(a).
(g) Timing of Any Share Distributions. Except as otherwise provided in Sections 5(c) or 7(a), after the Committee has certified achievement of the Performance Goal as provided in Section 4(b), the Company shall distribute the Adjusted Share Distribution Amount, reduced to reflect tax withholding and any related downward rounding to eliminate any fractional shares, on March 15th of the calendar year following the year in which the Performance Period ends (such date of distribution of Shares being referred to as the “Regular Vesting Date”).
(h) No Shareholder Rights Prior to Share Distribution. Because this is an award of Performance Units and not actual Shares of Company common stock, the Participant shall not have any rights or privileges as a shareholder of the Company based on the award of any ROATCE Performance Units or the achievement of any Performance Goals, unless and until Shares have been recorded on the Company’s official shareholder records (or the records of its transfer agent or registrar) as having been issued and distributed to the Participant (or his or her Beneficiary) after vesting in accordance herewith. In illustration and not in limitation of the foregoing, prior to vesting and such issuance and distribution of Shares to the Participant, the Participant shall not have any voting rights or, except as expressly provided herein with respect to contingent rights to Dividend Equivalents as part of any Adjusted Share Distribution Amount, any rights to receive dividends with respect to or based on any ROATCE Performance Units.
7. Change in Control Terms. If a Change in Control of the Company occurs after the Grant Date and during the Performance Period, Article XVI of the Plan shall govern the disposition of ROATCE Performance Units awarded under this Award Agreement.
8. Participant’s Investment Representations; Stock Ownership Guideline Covenants. Before the distribution of Shares with respect to any Achieved ROATCE Performance Units, the Participant shall provide any written investment representations reasonably requested by the Company. At the time any such Shares are distributed, if the Participant is subject to, and does not then satisfy, the Company’s Stock Ownership Guidelines for executives and directors, as may be amended and in effect from time to time and as set forth in the applicable section of the Company’s Corporate Governance Guidelines posted on the Company’s website or as otherwise established by the Committee (the “Stock Ownership Guidelines”), the Participant shall continue to hold the Shares distributed to the Participant (net of Shares withheld for taxes) until such time thereafter as the Participant first or again satisfies the Stock Ownership Guidelines.
9. Restrictive Covenants Applicable to the Participant. By executing and accepting this Award Agreement, and in consideration of the award of the ROATCE Performance Units to the Participant, the Participant: (a) hereby agrees to comply with and be bound by the restrictive covenants contained in Appendix B (the “Restrictive Covenants”); (b) understands and acknowledges that (i) the grant of ROATCE Performance Units pursuant to this Award Agreement, and (ii) any vesting or distribution of Shares to the Participant with respect thereto, are expressly conditioned on and subject to the Participant’s continuing compliance with each of the Restrictive Covenants; and (c) understands and acknowledges that the Company may seek and obtain any and all available remedies for any non-compliance with the Restrictive Covenants, in addition to the forfeiture of any Performance Units. The Restrictive Covenants are independent of and in addition to (not in replacement of) any covenants on the same or similar subjects to which the Participant may have previously agreed in any employment, confidentiality, non-solicitation, non-competition, severance, change in control, incentive compensation grant or award or other agreement to which the Participant is a party or by which he or she is bound, all of which other agreements shall remain in full force and effect.
10. Income and Employment Tax Withholding. All required federal, state, city, and local income and employment taxes that arise on account of the ROATCE Performance Units shall be satisfied through the withholding of Shares otherwise distributable as a part of the Adjusted Share Payment Amount pursuant to this Award Agreement.
11. Nontransferability. Unless and until vested in accordance with the terms of this Award Agreement, the Participant's interest in the ROATCE Performance Units or any contingent rights to any distribution of any Shares with respect to such ROATCE Performance Units may not be (i) sold, transferred, assigned, margined, encumbered, bequeathed, gifted, alienated, hypothecated, pledged, or otherwise disposed of, whether by operation of law, whether voluntarily or involuntarily or otherwise, other than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution, or (ii) subject to execution, attachment, or similar process. Any attempted or purported transfer in contravention of this Section shall be null and void from the start and of no force or effect whatsoever. Following the execution of this Award Agreement, the Participant may expressly designate a death beneficiary (“Beneficiary”) by completing and delivering a designation of beneficiary agreement (“Beneficiary Designation”) and delivering a copy of the Beneficiary Designation to the Company. In the event the Participant does not designate a beneficiary, then the applicable state law shall determine succession.
12. Indemnity. The Participant hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company and its Affiliates (and their respective directors, officers and employees), and the Committee, from and against any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses based upon or arising out of the incorrectness or alleged incorrectness of any investment representation made by Participant to the Company under Section 8 or any failure on the part of the Participant to perform any agreements contained herein. The Participant hereby further agrees to release and hold harmless the Company and its Affiliates (and their respective directors, officers and employees) from and against any tax liability, including without limitation, interest and penalties, incurred by the Participant in connection with his or her participation in the Plan.
13. Changes in Shares. In the event of any change in the Shares as described in Section 4.04 of the Plan, the Committee shall make such adjustment or substitution in the number or kind of Performance Units or shares subject to, or the terms of, this Award Agreement as it deems appropriate and consistent with such Section 4.04, so that the contingent economic value of the Performance Units covered by this Award Agreement remains substantially the same.
14. No Rights to Future Awards or Continued Employment. Nothing in the Plan or this Award Agreement creates any right for the Participant to receive, or any obligation on the part of the Company to grant to the Participant, any future awards of any kind under the Plan. In addition, nothing in the Plan or this Award Agreement confers any rights or obligations on the Participant to continued employment or service with the Company or any of its Affiliates or affects in any manner the right of the Company or its Affiliates or the Participant to terminate the Participant’s employment or service to the Company or any of its Affiliates at any time, subject to the terms of any employment agreement between the Participant and the Company or any of its Affiliates and any Plan terms applicable to Terminations for Good Reason.
15. Committee Determinations; Other Interpretive Matters. Any and all determinations made by the Committee under and as permitted by the Plan with respect to this Award Agreement or the Plan (including any made pursuant to Section 13 hereof) shall be conclusive, final and binding upon the Participant and any and all of his or her heirs, executors, administrators or others purporting to derive any rights or claims by or through the Participant. Except where otherwise specified or the context otherwise requires, (i) references such as “herein,” “hereto” or “hereof” refer to this Award Agreement in its entirety, including any and all Appendices hereto, (ii) “including” and similar references whenever used herein mean “including, without limitation,” and (iii) the
descriptive headings of the Sections and, where applicable, subsections of this Award Agreement are inserted for convenience only and shall not affect the interpretation of this Award Agreement.

18. Survival. The provisions of Sections 1, 2 and 4 through 17, inclusive, including Appendices A and B as incorporated in any of the foregoing, Sections 19 and 20 and this Section 18 of this Award Agreement, as well as the Restrictive Covenants contained in Appendix B hereto, will survive the expiration or termination of this Award Agreement, the vesting or forfeiture of any ROATCE Performance Units and distribution of Shares in respect of any Achieved ROATCE Performance Units pursuant hereto and/or any Termination of the Participant’s employment or service for any reason whatsoever.
19. Counterparts. This Award Agreement may be executed in two (2) or more counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original, but all of which collectively will constitute one and the same agreement.
20. Recoupment/Clawback. Any grant of ROATCE Performance Units under this Award Agreement or any other award granted or paid to the Participant under the Plan, whether in the form of stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, performance shares, performance units, stock or cash, is subject to recoupment or “clawback” by the Company in accordance with the Company’s Bonus Recoupment/Clawback Policy, as may be amended and in effect from time to time and as set forth in the applicable “Bonus Recoupment Policy” section of the Company’s Corporate Governance Guidelines posted on the Company’s website or as otherwise established by the Committee.

APPENDIX A TO ROATCE PERFORMANCE UNIT AWARD AGREEMENT
(ROATCE Performance Factor)
Grant Date: March 2, 2022
Performance Units Awarded: See Section 3 of the Award Agreement
Performance Period: January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2024
Applicable Performance Factor
The number of Shares payable on account of the ROATCE Performance Units covered by this Award Agreement (before any Dividend Equivalent Adjustment or tax withholding) will be based on the results of the following performance factor ("Performance Factor"), as first measured for the Company on a standalone basis and, if within certain parameters (described below under the heading “Calculation of ROATCE Performance Factor”) then measured relative to the Comparator Group Companies (as defined below):
•Return on Average Tangible Common Equity (“ROATCE”)
For purposes of this Award Agreement, the ROATCE Performance Factor will be determined for the Company, and (if and when then required) for each of the Comparator Group Companies, as provided in the definition of ROATCE Attainment and as further described below in this Appendix A.
Definitions Related to ROATCE Performance Factor
Adjusted Full Year Company Net Income: Net income as reported in the Company’s audited Consolidated Statement of Income for the year ending December 31, 2024, as included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for such year, adjusted to: (i) add back intangible amortization, net of tax at the federal statutory for 2024, (ii) exclude all GAAP charges that relate to unusual or non-recurring events, net of tax at the incremental rate used for the Company’s Executive Short-Term Incentive Plan for 2024 , and (iii) exclude charges relating to mergers, acquisitions, dispositions and other similar corporate transactions, branch closure and other facility termination charges, severance charges and any other charges generally excluded from the Company’s publicly reported “Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” net of tax at the incremental rate used for the Company’s Executive Short-Term Incentive Plan for 2024.
Average Full Year Company Tangible Common Equity: Average total common equity as reported in the Company’s internal financial performance report for the year ending December 31, 2024, adjusted to subtract full year average goodwill and average intangible assets and to also adjust for the average impact of the adjustments to net income described in the definition of Adjusted Full Year Company Net Income.
“Company’s ROATCE Attainment” or any similar reference to the ROATCE Attainment by the Company means the Adjusted Full Year Company Net Income divided by the Average Full Year Company Tangible Common Equity.
“Comparator Group” and “Comparator Group Companies” have the respective meanings set forth below under the heading “Comparator Group” in this Appendix A.
“Comparator Group Companies’ ROATCE Attainment” or any similar reference to the ROATCE Attainment by one or more Comparator Group Companies means the ROATCE Performance Factor results for each such Comparator Group Company, calculated based on that company’s full year net income from continuing operations for the year ended December 31, 2024 publicly reported by that company, adjusted for tax-affected amortization of goodwill and other intangible assets (using the statutory tax rate), as a percent of such company’s average common tangible equity.
“ROATCE Attainment” means either the Company’s ROATCE Attainment or the Comparator Group Companies’ ROATCE Attainment, as the context requires.
Performance Weighting Fraction
“Performance Weighting Fraction” means the relative weighting assigned to the above-identified Performance Factor(s) in determining the number of Shares to be distributed (before any Dividend Equivalent Adjustment or tax withholding) with respect to the Achieved ROATCE Performance Units. For purposes of this Award Agreement, the Performance Weighting Fraction is as follows:
Calculation of ROATCE Performance Factor
Minimum Standalone Company ROATCE Attainment as Pre-Condition for any Achieved ROATCE Performance Units. As a pre-condition for the Participant to be eligible for or be credited with any Achieved ROATCE Performance Units, or to receive any Shares with respect to any ROATCE Performance Units, the Company’s ROATCE Attainment must equal or exceed 8.50%. As an example, if the Company’s ROATCE Attainment was determined to be 7.50%, the Participant would not be credited with any Achieved ROATCE Performance Units and would not be eligible to receive any Shares in respect of the ROATCE Performance Units covered by this Award Agreement, even if the Company’s ROATCE Attainment relative to that of Comparator Group Companies would place the Company at or above the Minimum Performance level (shown as the Threshold/Minimum in the table below).
Standalone Company ROATCE Attainment Resulting in Maximum Performance Level Achievement. If the Company’s ROATCE Attainment is greater than 17.61%, then the Company will be deemed to have achieved Maximum Performance automatically as a result of such standalone ROATCE Attainment, and 200% of the Target ROATCE Performance Units shall be credited as Achieved ROATCE Performance Units, irrespective of whether that level of Company ROATCE Attainment would place it at a Maximum Performance level by virtue of the Company’s ranking relative to the Comparator Group Companies (as shown in the table below).
Relative ROATCE Determination where Standalone Company’s ROATCE Attainment within Prescribed Range. If the Company’s ROATCE Attainment is greater than or equal to 8.50%, but less than 17.61%, the percentage, if any, of the Target ROATCE Performance Units achieved and any resulting Unadjusted Share Distribution Amount will be determined by establishing the Company’s ROATCE performance percentile rank relative to Comparator Group Companies (excluding the Company). That relative percentile rank will be determined by interpolating the Company’s ROATCE Attainment percentage between those Comparator Group Companies with ROATCE Attainment immediately above and below that of the Company.
The table below shows the percentage of Shares issuable with respect to the Target ROATCE Performance Units covered by this Award Agreement (before any Dividend Equivalent Adjustment or tax withholding) at selected performance levels, subject to the Participant’s satisfaction of the vesting requirements described in Section 5(a) of this Award Agreement:
|Percentile Rank vs. Comparator Group||% of Target ROATCE Performance Units Achieved and Resulting Unadjusted Share Distribution Amount (Subject to Vesting)||Performance Level|
|< 25%||0%||Below Threshold|
Linear interpolation shall be applied between percentages shown in the first column of the table above to determine the resulting percentage of Target ROATCE Performance Units achieved for the Performance Period and the resulting Unadjusted Share Distribution Amount (subject to satisfaction of applicable vesting requirements). For example, if the Company’s percentile rank compared to the Comparator Group were 70%, the number of Achieved ROATCE Performance Units would equal 150% of the Target ROATCE Performance Units.
The "Comparator Group" is defined as and consists of the following comparator companies (alphabetized below by name), derived from the KBW Nasdaq Regional Banking Total Return Index (Nasdaq: KRXTR) as of the Grant Date (the “Index”), but excluding the Company from the Comparator Group, subject to adjustment of such included comparator companies as set forth under the following table (such companies as are included in the Comparator
Group at the end of the Performance Period, after any such adjustment, sometimes referred to individually as a “Comparator Group Company” and collectively as “Comparator Group Companies”):

A company listed above shall be removed from the Comparator Group if it has been removed from the Index before the end of the Performance Period. In any such case, neither the removed company nor any new or substitute company added to the Index in replacement for the removed company will be included in the calculation of relative ROATCE Attainment or the determination of the number of Achieved ROATCE Performance Units or the Unadjusted Share Distribution Amount.
Award Determination and Adjustment; Timing
The Committee will review and certify the Company’s achievement of the Performance Factor as provided in Section 4(b) of this Award Agreement and may exercise its good faith discretion, consistent with Article III of the Plan, to interpret or adjust the Performance Factor, the ROATCE Attainment by the Company or any Comparator Group Company or the terms of this Award Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing, except as otherwise provided in Section 6(f), the Committee reserves the right to use negative discretion to reduce the amount of any award. Shares distributable in respect of any Achieved ROATCE Performance Units will be distributed in accordance with the timing set forth in Section 6(g) of this Award Agreement.

3.Safeguarding, and Non-Use and Non-Disclosure, of Confidential Information
a.Value and Importance of Confidentiality Protections. The Participant acknowledges and agrees that (i) by virtue of Participant’s employment, Participant will be given access to and use of Confidential Information, (ii) the Company has devoted (and will continue to devote) substantial time, money, and effort to develop Confidential Information and maintain the proprietary and confidential nature thereof, and (iii) Confidential Information is proprietary and confidential and, if any Confidential Information were disclosed or became known by persons engaging in a business in any way competitive with the Company's Business, such disclosure would result in hardship, loss, irreparable injury, and damage to the Company, the measurement of which would be difficult, if not impossible, to determine. Accordingly, the Participant agrees that the preservation and protection of Confidential Information is an essential part of Participant’s duties of employment and that, as a result of the Participant’s employment with the Company, Participant has a duty of fidelity, loyalty, and trust to the Company in safeguarding Confidential Information.
b.Confidentiality Covenants. At all times both during and after the Termination of the Participant’s employment with the Company: (i) the Participant will hold as strictly confidential, and take all steps necessary to protect and safeguard Confidential Information; (ii) the Participant will not, directly or indirectly, use, or otherwise employ any Confidential Information, except for such use as reasonably required in the ordinary course of Participant’s employment by the Company, and then solely during the term of such Company employment and exclusively for the Company’s benefit; and (iii) the Participant will not, directly or indirectly, disclose, distribute, communicate, disseminate or reveal any Confidential Information to any Person, except for such disclosure (A) to other Company employees who reasonably “need to know” the same to discharge their responsibilities to the Company, but only during the term of the Participant’s employment with the Company or (B) as legally required by any court or governmental agency (as by subpoena or similar mandatory legal process or court order), but only after prompt notice to the Company to permit it to seek a protective order or other confidential treatment of the Confidential Information being sought and then only to the extent any portions of such Confidential Information are legally required to be disclosed. The Participant shall follow all Company policies and procedures regarding Confidential Information and shall exercise utmost diligence and take any additional precautions necessary or
appropriate under the particular circumstances to safeguard, and protect against any prohibited use or disclosure of, any Confidential Information.
c.Duration. The confidentiality obligations contained in this Agreement shall continue as long as Confidential Information remains confidential or protectable as a trade secret under applicable laws (except that such obligations shall continue if Confidential Information loses its confidential nature through improper use or disclosure, including but not limited to any breach of the Restrictive Covenants in this Appendix B) and, in the case of any Third-Party Confidential Information, for so long as the Company remains contractually or otherwise legally obligated to protect the same.
d.Exceptions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Appendix B prohibits, limits, or restricts, or shall be construed to prohibit, limit, or restrict, the Participant from exercising any legally protected whistleblower rights (including pursuant to Section 21F of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the rules and regulations thereunder), without notice to or consent from the Company. Moreover, pursuant to the federal Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016: (i) an individual will not be held criminally or civilly liable under any federal or state trade secret laws for the disclosure of a trade secret that is made (A) in confidence, to a federal, state or local government official or to a lawyer, solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law; or (B) in a complaint or other document filed in a lawsuit or other legal proceeding, if such filing is made “under seal” (meaning that it is not accessible to the public); and (ii) an individual who files a lawsuit for retaliation by an employer for reporting a suspected violation of law may disclose the trade secret to the attorney of the individual and use the trade secret information in the court proceeding, if the individual files any document containing the trade secret under seal and does not disclose the trade secret, except pursuant to court order.
4. Remedies. The Company will suffer irreparable damage and injury and will not have an adequate remedy at law if the Participant breaches any provision of the Restrictive Covenants in this Appendix B. Accordingly, in addition to any and all other remedies that may be available to the Company, the Company shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief to prevent or halt actual, attempted or threatened breaches of the Participant’s Restrictive Covenants, or to enforce specifically their terms, without proving actual damages or posting any bond or other security. The rights and remedies of the Company set forth in this Appendix B and in this Award Agreement generally are cumulative with, and not exclusive or in lieu of, other rights and remedies available to the Company at law or in equity. In addition, the Company will retain the right to take appropriate disciplinary action against the Participant for violations of the Restrictive Covenants or any Company policies during the Participant’s employment by the Company. The existence of any claim or cause of action that the Participant has against the Company, whether predicated on this Award Agreement or otherwise, shall not constitute a defense to the enforcement by the Company of the Restrictive Covenants.
5. Periods of Noncompliance and Reasonableness of Periods. The Restrictive Covenants shall be deemed not to run during any periods of noncompliance by the Participant, the intention of the parties being to have such restrictions and covenants apply for the full periods contemplated by this Appendix B (including those specified following the Participant’s Termination of employment with the Company). The Company and the Participant acknowledge and agree that the Restrictive Covenants are reasonable in view of the nature of the Company's Business and the Participant's advantageous knowledge of and familiarity with the Company's Business, operations, affairs, Customers and Prospective Customers. The Restrictive Covenants are essential terms and conditions to the Company entering into this Award Agreement, and they shall be construed as independent of any other provision in this Award Agreement or of any other agreement between the Participant and the Company. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, if the scope of any restriction or covenant is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be too broad to permit enforcement of such restriction or covenant as written, then such restriction or covenant shall be enforced to the maximum extent permitted by law. The Participant and the Company hereby acknowledge the same and authorize any such court to strike or modify any such provision or part thereof, to permit enforcement of the Restrictive Covenants and this Award Agreement to the fullest extent permitted by law.
6. Survival. The Restrictive Covenants shall survive termination or expiration of this Award Agreement and any Termination of the Participant’s employment with the Company.
7. Reimbursement of Certain Costs. If the Participant breaches or threatens to breach any of the Restrictive Covenants in this Appendix B and the Company initiates legal action against the Participant and substantially prevails against the Participant in such action by enforcing such Restrictive Covenants or obtaining damages for such breaches, the Company shall be entitled to payment or reimbursement from the Participant of the Company’s reasonable costs and expenses in connection with such action (including reasonable attorneys' fees and disbursements, litigation costs and investigative and expert witness fees and costs).
