4.Delivery of Shares.
4.1General. Subject to Section 4.2 and Section 4.3 below, within thirty (30) days following the vesting of the RSUs, the Participant shall receive the number of shares of Stock that correspond to the number of RSUs that have become vested on the Vesting Date or that have otherwise vested in accordance with the terms of this RSU Agreement and the Plan. The Committee may, in its discretion, settle any RSUs by payment to the Participant in cash of an amount equal to the Fair Market Value on the payment date of the shares of Stock or other property otherwise issuable to the Participant pursuant to the terms of Section 9.6 of the Plan.
4.2Trading Compliance. If the date such distribution would otherwise be made pursuant to Section 4.1 occurs on a day on which the sale of Stock would violate the provisions of the Trading Company Policy, then such distribution shall be instead made on the next trading day on which the sale of such Stock would not violate the Trading Compliance Policy, but in any event, no later than the fifteenth (15th) day of the third (3rd) calendar month following the year in which such RSUs vest.
4.3Deferrals. If permitted by the Committee, the Participant may elect, subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan and any other applicable written plan or procedure adopted by the Company from time to time for purposes of such election, to defer the distribution of all or any portion of the shares of Stock that would otherwise be distributed to the Participant hereunder (the “Deferred Shares”), consistent with the requirements of Section 409A. Upon the vesting of RSUs that have been so deferred, the applicable number of Deferred Shares shall be credited to a bookkeeping account established on the Participant’s behalf (the “Account”). Subject to Section 4.3 hereof, the number of shares of Stock equal to the number of Deferred Shares credited to the Participant’s Account shall be distributed to the Participant in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Plan and the other applicable written plans or procedures of the Company, consistent with the requirements of Section 409A.
5.Dividends; Rights as Stockholder.
Each RSU is granted, together with Dividend Equivalent Rights, with respect to the payment of cash dividends on Stock during the period beginning on the Grant Date and ending, with respect to each share subject to the RSUs, on the earlier of the date the RSUs are settled or the date on which it is terminated. Dividend Equivalent Rights, if any, shall be paid in the form of cash or with additional whole RSUs as of the date of payment of such cash dividends on Stock (which, for the avoidance of doubt, shall be made (if at all) at the same time payments are made for the RSUs originally subject to this RSU Agreement), as determined by the Committee. The number of additional RSUs, if any, to be credited shall be determined in accordance with the terms of the Plan. Such cash amount or additional RSUs shall be subject to the same terms and conditions and shall be settled in the same manner and at the same time as the RSUs originally subject to this RSU Agreement. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Participant shall have no rights as a stockholder with respect to any shares covered by the RSUs until the date of the issuance of such shares (as evidenced by the appropriate entry on the books of the Company or of a duly authorized transfer agent of the Company).
6.Withholding of Tax.
The Company shall have the right to deduct from any and all payments made under this RSU Agreement, or to require the Participant, through payroll withholding, cash payment or otherwise, to make adequate provision for, the federal, state, local and foreign taxes (including social insurance), if any, required by law to be withheld by any Participating Company with respect to the RSUs or the shares acquired pursuant thereto. The Company shall have the right, but not the obligation, to deduct from the shares of Stock issuable to the Participant upon the settlement of the RSUs, or to accept from the Participant the tender of, a number of whole shares of Stock having a Fair Market Value, as determined by the Company, equal to all or any part of the tax withholding obligations of any Participating Company. The Fair Market Value of any shares of Stock withheld or tendered to satisfy any such tax withholding obligations shall not exceed the amount determined by the applicable minimum statutory withholding rates (or the maximum individual statutory withholding rates for the applicable jurisdiction if use of such rates would not result in adverse accounting consequences or cost). The Company may require the Participant to direct a broker, upon the vesting or settlement of the RSUs, to sell a portion of the shares subject to the RSUs determined by the Company in its discretion to be sufficient to cover the tax withholding obligations of any Participating Company and to remit an amount equal to such tax withholding obligations to such Participating Company in cash.
7.Beneficial Ownership of Shares; Certificate Registration.
The Participant hereby authorizes the Company, in its sole discretion, to deposit, for the benefit of the Participant with any broker with which the Participant has an account relationship of which the Company has notice, any or all shares acquired by the Participant pursuant to the settlement of the RSUs. Except as provided by the preceding sentence, a certificate for the shares received upon settlement of the RSUs shall be registered in the name of the Participant, or, if applicable, in the names of the heirs of the Participant.
8.Restrictions on Grant of the RSUs and Issuance of Shares.
The grant of RSUs and the issuance of shares of Stock pursuant to the RSUs shall be subject to compliance with all applicable requirements of federal, state and foreign law with respect to such securities and the requirements of any stock exchange or market system upon which the Stock may then be listed. In addition, no shares may be issued pursuant to the RSUs unless (i) a registration statement under the Securities Act shall at the time of such issuance be in effect with respect to the shares issuable pursuant to the RSUs, or (ii) in the opinion of legal counsel to the Company, the shares issuable pursuant to the RSUs may be issued in accordance with the terms of an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act. The inability of the Company to obtain from any regulatory body having jurisdiction the authority, if any, deemed by the Company’s legal counsel to be necessary to the lawful issuance and sale of any shares under the Plan 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 issuance of any 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.
The Company shall not be required to issue fractional shares upon the settlement of RSUs.
10.Non-Transferability of the RSUs.
The right to receive shares of Stock under this RSU Agreement shall not be subject in any manner to anticipation, alienation, sale, exchange, transfer, assignment, pledge, encumbrance, or garnishment by creditors of the Participant or the Participant’s beneficiary, except transfer by will or by the laws of descent and distribution. All rights with respect to the RSUs granted to the Participant hereunder shall be exercisable during his or her lifetime only by such Participant or the Participant’s guardian or legal representative.
11.Adjustments for Changes in Capital Structure.
Subject to any required action by the stockholders of the Company and the requirements of Sections 409A and 424 of the Code to the extent applicable, in the event of any change in the Stock effected without receipt of consideration by the Company, whether through merger, consolidation, reorganization, reincorporation, recapitalization, reclassification, stock dividend, stock split, reverse stock split, split-up, split-off, spin-off, combination of shares, exchange of shares, or similar change in the capital structure of the Company, or in the event of payment of a dividend or distribution to the stockholders of the Company in a form other than Stock (excepting normal cash dividends) that has a material effect on the Fair Market Value of shares of Stock, appropriate and proportionate adjustments shall be made in the number and kind of shares subject to the RSUs, in order to prevent dilution or enlargement of the Participant’s rights under the RSUs. For purposes of the foregoing, conversion of any convertible securities of the Company shall not be treated as “effected without receipt of consideration by the Company.” Any fractional share resulting from an adjustment pursuant to this Section 11 shall be rounded down to the nearest whole number. The Committee, in its sole discretion, may also make such adjustments in the terms of the RSUs to reflect, or related to, such changes in the capital structure of the Company or distributions as it deems appropriate. All adjustments pursuant to this Section 11 shall be determined by the Committee, and its determination shall be final, binding and conclusive.
12.Rights as a Stockholder, Employee or Consultant.
The Participant shall have no rights as a stockholder with respect to any shares covered by the RSUs until the date of the issuance of the shares for which the RSUs have been settled (as evidenced by the appropriate entry on the books of the Company or of a duly authorized transfer agent of the Company). No adjustment shall be made for dividends, distributions or other rights for which the record date is prior to the date the shares are issued, except as provided in Section 12. If the Participant is an Employee, the Participant understands and acknowledges that, except as otherwise provided in a separate, written employment agreement between a Participating Company and the Participant, the Participant’s employment is “at will” and is for no specified term. Nothing in this RSU Agreement shall confer upon the Participant any right to continue in the Service of a Participating Company or interfere in any way with any right of the Participating Company Group to terminate the Participant’s Service as an Employee or Consultant, as the case may be, at any time.
13.1Termination or Amendment. The Committee may terminate or amend the Plan or the RSUs at any time; provided, however, that no such termination or amendment may have a materially adverse effect on the RSUs without the consent of the Participant unless such termination or amendment is necessary to comply with any applicable law or government regulation. No amendment or addition to this RSU Agreement shall be effective unless in writing.
