1.4 Settlement of RSUs. As soon as practicable after the RSU Vesting Date, the Company shall transfer to you one Ordinary Share for each RSUs becoming vested on such date (the date of any such transfer shall be the “settlement date” for purposes of this Agreement); provided, however, the Company may withhold shares otherwise transferable to you to the extent
(Employee RSU) Page 2 of 26
necessary to satisfy withholding taxes due by reason of the vesting of the RSUs, in accordance with Section 2.6. You shall have no rights as a stockholder with respect to the RSUs awarded hereunder prior to the date of issuance to you of a certificate or certificates for such shares. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Committee, in its sole discretion, may elect to settle RSUs in cash based on the fair market value of the Ordinary Shares on the RSU Vesting Date.
1.5 Dividend Equivalents. The RSUs awarded under Section 1.1 shall be eligible to receive dividend equivalents in accordance with the following:

(b) On each date that a cash dividend is paid with respect to Ordinary Shares, the Company shall credit your Account with the dollar amount of dividends you would have received if each RSU held by you on the record date for such dividend payment had been an Ordinary Share. No interest or other earnings shall accrue on such Account.
(c) As of each RSU Vesting Date, you shall receive a payment equal to the amount of dividends that would have been paid on the RSUs vesting on such date had they been Ordinary Shares during the period beginning on the Grant Date and ending on the RSU Vesting Date, and the Account shall be debited appropriately. If you forfeit RSUs, any amounts in the Account attributable to such RSUs shall also be forfeited.
(d) If dividends are paid in the form of Ordinary Shares rather than cash, then you will be credited with one additional RSU for each Ordinary Share that would have been received as a dividend had your outstanding RSUs been Ordinary Shares.

(Employee RSU) Page 3 of 26
OF THE PLAN ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY REFERENCE AND ARE MADE A PART OF THIS AGREEMENT IN THE SAME MANNER AS IF EACH AND EVERY SUCH PROVISION WERE FULLY WRITTEN INTO THIS AGREEMENT.

In the event of a stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization, reclassification or combination of shares, merger, sale of assets or similar event, the number and kind of shares subject to Award under this Agreement will be appropriately adjusted in an equitable manner to prevent dilution or enlargement of the rights granted to or available for you.

2.7 Taxes and Withholding.
(a) Withholding (Only Applicable to Individuals Subject to U.S. Tax Laws). This Award is subject to the withholding of all applicable taxes. The Company may withhold, or permit you to remit to the Company, any Federal, state or local taxes applicable to the grant, vesting or other event giving rise to tax liability with respect to this Award. If you have not remitted the full amount of applicable withholding taxes to the Company by the date the Company is required to pay such withholding to the appropriate taxing authority (or such earlier date that the Company may specify to assist it in timely meeting its withholding obligations), the Company shall have the unilateral right to withhold Ordinary Shares relating to this Award in the amount it determines is sufficient to satisfy the tax withholding required by law. State taxes will be withheld at the appropriate rate set by the state in which you are employed or were last employed by the Company. In no event may the number of shares withheld exceed the number necessary to satisfy the maximum Federal, state and local income and employment tax withholding requirements. You may elect to surrender previously acquired Ordinary Shares or to have the Company withhold Ordinary Shares relating to this Award in an amount sufficient to satisfy all or a portion of the tax withholding required by law.
(b) Responsibility for Taxes (Only Applicable to Individuals Subject to Tax Laws Outside the U.S.) Regardless of any action the Company or, if different, the Affiliate employing or retaining you takes with respect to any or all income tax, social insurance, payroll tax, payment on account or other tax-related items related to your participation in the Plan and legally applicable to you (“Tax-Related Items”), you acknowledge that the ultimate liability for
(Employee RSU) Page 4 of 26
all Tax-Related Items is and remains your responsibility and may exceed the amount actually withheld by the Company or the Affiliate employing or retaining you. You further acknowledge that the Company and/or the Affiliate employing or retaining you (1) make no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related Items in connection with any aspect of the RSUs, including, but not limited to, the grant, vesting or settlement of the RSUs, the subsequent sale of Ordinary Shares acquired pursuant to such settlement and the receipt of any dividends; and (2) do not commit to and are under no obligation to structure the terms of the grant or any aspect of the RSUs to reduce or eliminate your liability for Tax-Related Items or achieve any particular tax result. Further, if you have become subject to tax in more than one jurisdiction between the RSU Grant Date and the date of any relevant taxable event, as applicable, you acknowledge that the Company and/or the Affiliate employing or retaining you (or formerly employing or retaining you, as applicable) may be required to withhold or account for Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction.
(1) Prior to any relevant taxable or tax withholding event, as applicable, you will pay or make adequate arrangements satisfactory to the Company and/or the Affiliate employing or retaining you to satisfy all Tax-Related Items. In this regard, you authorize the Company and/or the Affiliate employing or retaining you, or their respective agents, at their discretion, to satisfy the obligations with regard to all Tax-Related Items by one or a combination of the following:
(A) withholding from your wages or other cash compensation paid to you by the Company and/or the Affiliate employing or retaining you; or
(B) withholding from proceeds of the sale of Ordinary Shares acquired upon settlement of the RSUs either through a voluntary sale or through a mandatory sale arranged by the Company (on your behalf pursuant to this authorization); or
(C) withholding in Ordinary Shares to be issued upon settlement of the RSUs.
(2) To avoid negative accounting treatment, the Company may withhold or account for Tax-Related Items by considering applicable statutory withholding amounts or other applicable withholding rates. If the obligation for Tax-Related Items is satisfied by withholding in Ordinary Shares, for tax purposes, you are deemed to have been issued the full number of Ordinary Shares subject to the vested RSUs, notwithstanding that a number of the Ordinary Shares are held back solely for the purpose of paying the Tax-Related Items.
(3) Finally, you shall pay to the Company or the Affiliate employing or retaining you any amount of Tax-Related Items that the Company or the Affiliate employing or retaining you may be required to withhold or account for as a result of your participation in the Plan that cannot be satisfied by the means previously described. The Company may refuse to issue or deliver the Ordinary Shares or the proceeds of the sale of Ordinary Shares, if you fail to comply with your obligations in connection with the Tax-Related Items.
(Employee RSU) Page 5 of 26
2.8 Compliance with Applicable Law. The issuance of Ordinary Shares will be subject to and conditioned upon compliance by the Company and you, including any written representations, warranties and agreements as the Administrator may request of you for compliance with all (i) applicable U.S. state and federal laws and regulations, (ii) applicable laws of the country where you reside pertaining to the issuance or sale of Ordinary Shares, and (iii) applicable requirements of any stock exchange or automated quotation system on which the Company’s Ordinary Shares may be listed or quoted at the time of such issuance or transfer. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Company shall have no obligation to issue any Ordinary Shares under this Agreement if such issuance would violate any applicable law or any applicable regulation or requirement of any securities exchange or similar entity.
2.9 Code Section 409A (Only Applicable to Individuals Subject to U.S. Federal Tax Laws)
(a) RSUs other than RSUs that continue to vest by reason of your Involuntary Termination for Economic Reasons and dividend equivalents payable under this Agreement are intended to be exempt from Code Section 409A under the exemption for short-term deferrals. Accordingly, RSUs (other than RSUs that continue to vest by reason of your Involuntary Termination for Economic Reasons) will be settled and dividend equivalents will be paid no later than the 15th day of the third month following the later of (i) the end of your taxable year in which the RSU Vesting Date occurs, or (ii) the end of the fiscal year of the Company in which the RSU Vesting Date occurs.
(b) RSUs that continue to vest by reason of your Involuntary Termination for Economic Reasons are subject to the provisions of this subsection (b). Any distribution in settlement of such RSUs will occur provided your Involuntary Termination for Economic Reasons constitutes a “separation from service” as defined in Treasury Regulation §1.409A-1(h). If the Company determines that you are a “specified employee” as defined in Code Section 409A (i.e., an officer with annual compensation above $130,000 (as adjusted for inflation), a five-percent owner of the Company or a one-percent owner with annual compensation in excess of $150,000), distribution in settlement of any such RSUs that would be payable within six months of your separation from service shall be delayed to the first business day following the six-month anniversary of your separation from service. Any distribution in settlement of such RSUs that would be made more than six months after your separation from service (without application of the six-month delay) shall not be subject to the six-month delay described in this subsection.

You acknowledge that a violation by you of any of the covenants contained in this Section 2.15 would cause irreparable damage to the Company and its Affiliates in an amount that would be material but not readily ascertainable, and that any remedy at law (including the payment of damages) would be inadequate. Accordingly, you agree that, notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, in addition to any other damages it is able to show, the Company and its Affiliates shall be entitled (without the necessity of showing economic loss or other actual damage) to injunctive relief (including temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions and permanent injunctions), without posting a bond, in any court of competent jurisdiction for any actual or threatened breach of any of the covenants set forth in this Section 2.15 in addition to any other legal or equitable remedies it may have. In addition, in the event of your Willful Restrictive Covenant Breach (as defined in this Section 2.15), (i) all of your rights under this Agreement, whether or not vested, shall terminate immediately, and (ii) any Shares, cash or other property paid or delivered to you pursuant to this Agreement shall be forfeited and you shall be required to repay such Shares, cash or other property to the Company, no later than thirty (30) calendar days after the Company makes demand to you for repayment. For purposes of this Agreement, “Willful Restrictive Covenant Breach” means your material breach of any of the covenants set forth in this Section 2.15 which you knew, or with due inquiry, should have known, would constitute such a material breach. The preceding sentences of this Section 2.15 shall not be construed as a waiver of the rights that the Company and its Affiliates may have for damages under this Agreement or otherwise, and all such rights shall be unrestricted. The Restricted Period shall be tolled during (and shall be deemed automatically extended by) any period during which you are in violation of the provisions of Section 2.15(a), (b) or (c), as applicable. In the event that a court of competent jurisdiction determines that any provision of this Section 2.15 is invalid or more restrictive than
(Employee RSU) Page 11 of 26
permitted under the governing law of such jurisdiction, then, only as to enforcement of this Section 2.15 within the jurisdiction of such court, such provision shall be interpreted and enforced as if it provided for the maximum restriction permitted under such governing law.
(1) You acknowledge that the Company and its Affiliates have expended and will continue to expend substantial amounts of time, money and effort to develop business strategies, employee, customer and other relationships and goodwill to build an effective organization. You acknowledge that the Company and its Affiliates have a legitimate business interest in and right to protect its goodwill and employee, customer and other relationships, and that the Company and its Affiliates could be seriously damaged by the loss or deterioration of its employee, customer and other relationships. Executive further acknowledges that the Company and its Affiliates are entitled to protect and preserve the going concern value of the Company and its Affiliates to the extent permitted by law.
(2) In light of the foregoing acknowledgments, you agree that the covenants contained in this Agreement are reasonable and properly required for the adequate protection of the businesses and goodwill of the Company and its Affiliates. You further acknowledge that, although your compliance with the covenants contained in this Agreement may prevent you from earning a livelihood in a business similar to the business of the Company and its Affiliates, your experience and capabilities are such that you have other opportunities to earn a livelihood and adequate means of support for you and your dependents.
(3) In light of the acknowledgements contained in this Section 2.15, you agree not to challenge or contest the reasonableness, validity or enforceability of any limitations on, and obligations of, you contained in this Section 2.15.
We look forward to your continuing contribution to the growth of the Company. Please acknowledge your receipt of the Plan and this Award.
Very truly yours,

Certain capitalized terms used but not defined in this Appendix have the meanings set forth in the Plan and/or the Agreement. The Award will not create any entitlement to receive any similar benefit in the future.

There may be relatively few potential buyers or sellers of the shares on the NYSE, NASDAQ ,TASE or any other applicable market at any time and this may increase the volatility of the market price of the shares.

Terms and Conditions
No Entitlement for Claims or Compensation. By accepting the award of RSUs, you consent to participation in the Plan, and acknowledge that you have received a copy of the Plan document. You understand that the Company has unilaterally, gratuitously and in its sole discretion decided to make awards of RSUs under the Plan to individuals who may be employees, consultants and directors throughout the world. The decision is limited and entered into based upon the express assumption and condition that any RSUs will not economically or otherwise bind the Company or any Parent, Subsidiary or Affiliate, including your employer, on an ongoing basis, other than as expressly set forth in the Agreement. Consequently, you understand that the Award is given on the assumption and condition that the RSUs shall not become part of any employment contract (whether with the Company or any Parent, Subsidiary or Affiliate, including your employer) and shall not be considered a mandatory benefit, salary for any purpose (including severance compensation) or any other right whatsoever. Furthermore, you understand and freely accept that there is no guarantee that any benefit whatsoever shall arise from the award, which is gratuitous and discretionary, since the future value of the RSUs and the underlying shares is unknown and unpredictable. You also understand that this Award would not be made but for the assumptions and conditions set forth hereinabove; thus, you understand, acknowledge and freely accept that, should any or all of the assumptions be mistaken or any of the conditions not be met for any reason, the Award, the RSUs and any right to the underlying shares shall be null and void.

Additionally, you may be required to declare electronically to the Bank of Spain any securities accounts (including brokerage accounts held abroad), any foreign instruments (e.g., Ordinary Shares) and any transactions with non-Spanish residents (including any payments of cash or shares made to you by the Company) if the balances in such accounts together with the value of such instruments as of December 31, or the volume of transactions with non-Spanish residents during the prior or current year, exceeds €1,000,000. Generally, you will only be required to report on an annual basis (by January 20 of each year). Note that if the value is less than €1,000,000, there is only an obligation to declare this information to the Bank of Spain upon request from the Bank of Spain, in which case the deadline is two months since the request is received.
When receiving foreign currency payments derived from the ownership of Ordinary Shares (i.e., dividends or sale proceeds), you must inform the financial institution receiving the payment of the basis upon which such payment is made. Should amounts exceed €12,500, you will need to provide the following information to the Spanish Registered Entity: (i) your name, address, and fiscal identification number; (ii) the name and corporate domicile of the Company; (iii) the amount of the payment and the currency used; (iv) the country of origin; (v) the reasons for the payment; and (vi) further information that may be required. Exceptions to this rule are when you move funds through a Spanish resident bank account opened abroad, or when collections and payments are carried out in cash. These exceptions, however, are subject to their own reporting requirements.
Tax Information. If you hold assets or rights outside of Spain (including shares acquired under the Plan), you may have to file an informational tax report, Form 720, with the tax authorities declaring such ownership by March 31st of the following year. Generally, this reporting obligation is based on the value of those rights and assets as of December 31 and has a threshold of €50,000 per type group of asset (one type of group being Securities, rights, insurance policies and income located abroad).. Please note that reporting requirements are based on what you have previously disclosed and the increase in value of such and the total value of certain groups of foreign assets. Also, the thresholds for annual filing requirements may change each year. Therefore, you should consult your personal advisor regarding whether you will be required to file an informational tax report for asset and rights that you hold abroad.

(Employee RSU) Page 28 of 26
If payment or withholding of the income tax due in connection with the RSUs is not made within ninety (90) days of the end of the U.K. tax year in which the event giving rise to the income tax liability or such other period specified in Section 222(1)(c) of the U.K. Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003 occurred (the “Due Date”), the amount of any uncollected income tax shall constitute a loan owed by you to your employer, effective as of the Due Date. You agree that the loan will bear interest at the then-current official rate of Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (“HMRC”), it shall be immediately due and repayable, and the Company or your employer may recover it at any time thereafter by any of the means referred to in Section 2.7 of the Agreement.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you are a director or executive officer of the Company (within the meaning of Section 13(k) of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended), you will not be eligible for a loan from the Company or your employer to cover the income tax liability. In the event that you are a director or executive officer and the income tax is not collected from or paid by the Due Date, the amount of any uncollected income tax will constitute a benefit to you on which additional income tax and national insurance contributions (“NICs”) will be payable. You will be responsible for reporting any income tax for reimbursing the Company or your employer the value of any employee NICs due on this additional benefit.
