1. Grant of Award
This Agreement (“Agreement”) is made and entered into as of «Grant_Date_x» (the “Grant Date”) by and between Perspecta Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), and «Name_x», a full-time employee of the Company and/or one or more of its Subsidiaries (the “Employee”).
This Agreement granting the Employee an award under the Plan (the “Award”) shall be subject to all of the terms and conditions set forth in the Perspecta Inc. 2018 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) and this Agreement. Except as defined in Appendix A, capitalized terms shall have the same meanings ascribed to them under the Plan.
This Award is subject to the data privacy provisions set forth in Appendix B. Award Granted: «Shares_Granted_x» Restricted Stock Units (the “Target Units”)
2. Normal Settlement of RSUs at end of Performance Period.
(a) The total number of RSU Shares delivered in settlement of this Award shall be between 0% and 200%, inclusive, of the number of Target Units and, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, shall be determined by Perspecta Human Resources and Compensation Committee (“the Committee”) pursuant to Appendix C to this Agreement based on the Company’s 3 year performance. Dividend Equivalents will be paid with respect to such RSU Shares delivered in settlement at the same time as the Restricted Stock Units (“RSUs”) are settled.
(b) For purposes of this Section 2, this Award shall be settled on the Scheduled Settlement Date. The total number of RSU Shares delivered in settlement of the Award pursuant to this Section 2 shall be reduced (but not below zero) by the number of RSU Shares, if any, delivered in settlement of the Award pursuant to Section 3 below. That is, to the extent a portion of the Award is settled pursuant to Section 3 below, that portion shall not also be settled under the provisions of this Section 2.
(c) Any RSU Shares the Employee receives in settlement of the RSUs shall be subject to any holding period requirements or other restrictions set forth in the Company’s stock ownership guidelines applicable to the Employee, as in effect from time to time. The Employee acknowledges that he may be prohibited from selling or otherwise disposing of such RSU Shares while subject to such guidelines.
3. Prorated Earning of RSUs During Performance Period with Settlement at End of Performance Period
(a) The RSUs shall be earned as to 18.75% of the Target Units upon the date on which the Committee determines that the Company’s EPS performance for Fiscal Year 1 is at or above the threshold level of EPS performance specified in Appendix C to this Agreement. If the Company’s EPS performance for Fiscal Year 1 is such that no portion of the RSUs is earned under Section 3(a) based on EPS performance, then the RSUs shall be earned as to 18.75% of the Target Units upon the date on which the Committee determines that the Company’s EPS performance for Fiscal Year 2 is at or above the threshold level of EPS performance specified in Appendix C to this Agreement. If the Company’s EPS performance for Fiscal Year 1 is such that a portion of the RSUs is earned under Section 3(a) based on EPS performance, then the RSUs shall be earned as to an additional 18.75% of the Target Units upon the date on which the Committee determines that the Company’s EPS performance for Fiscal Year 2 is at or above the level of EPS performance that results in a 75% payout of the Target EPS Units pursuant to Appendix C to this Agreement.
(b) In addition, the RSUs shall be earned as to 6.25% of the Target Units upon the date on which the Committee determines that the Company’s Cumulative FCF performance for Fiscal Year 1 is at or above the Fiscal Year 1 Cumulative FCF Target specified in Appendix C to this Agreement. In addition, the RSUs shall be earned as to an additional 6.25% of the Target Units upon the date on which the Committee determines that the Company’s Cumulative FCF performance for Fiscal Years 1 and 2 is at or above the Fiscal Year 1 and 2 Cumulative FCF Target specified in Appendix C to this Agreement.
(c) For the avoidance of doubt, up to 50% of the Target Units may be earned under the provisions of this Section 3.
(d) RSUs that are earned pursuant to the provisions of this Section 3 shall be settled on the Scheduled Settlement Date, subject to the Employee’s continued employment through the end of Fiscal Year 3 and the other terms and conditions of this Award. Dividend Equivalents will be paid with respect to such RSU Shares delivered in settlement at the same time as the RSUs are settled.
4. Effect of Termination of Employment; Approved Termination; Change in Control; Recoupment and Forfeiture.
(a) Age 62 or Older Other than for Cause, death or Disability with at least 10 Years of Service; Approved Termination. If:
(ii) the Employee’s status as an employee of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is terminated after the end of Fiscal Year 1 and during Fiscal Year 2 or Fiscal Year 3 at age 62 or older for no reason, or for any reason other than Cause, death or Disability, and the Employee shall have been (or for any other purpose shall have been treated as if he or she had been) a continuous employee of the Company or its Subsidiaries for at least 10 years immediately prior to the date of termination of employment status (including any continuous service with DXC prior to the Spinoff or any continuous service with Vencore Holding Corporation or KGS Holding Corporation prior to the Merger); or
(ii) the Employee’s status as an employee of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is terminated at any time on or before the end of Fiscal Year 3 and such termination is specifically approved by the Committee for purposes of this Section 4(a),
then the Company shall settle a fraction of the RSUs that otherwise would settle in accordance with Section 2, Section 3 (if applicable), and Appendix C of this Agreement on the Scheduled Settlement Date. This fraction will be determined by calculating the number of full months of continuous service with the Company or its Subsidiaries that the Employee has completed since the start of the performance period and then dividing this number by the total number of months during the performance period. If the Employee’s status as an employee of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries terminates pursuant to this Section 4(a) after the end of Fiscal Year 3, then the Company shall settle the RSUs in accordance with Section 2, Section 3 (if applicable) and Appendix C of this Agreement, without pro-ration, on the Scheduled Settlement Date.
(b) Death or Disability.
(i) If, on or before the end of Fiscal Year 3, the Employee’s status as an employee of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is terminated by reason of the death or Disability of the Employee, then, one calendar month after the Employee’s status as an employee of the Company or its Subsidiaries is terminated (the “Employment Termination Date”) the Company shall settle the RSUs in full by delivering a pro-rated amount of 100% of the Target Units, with such pro-ration based on the Employee’s period of service during the applicable performance period.
(ii) If, after the end of Fiscal Year 3 and prior to the Scheduled Settlement Date, the Employee’s status as an employee of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is terminated by reason of the death or Disability of the Employee, then the Company shall settle the RSUs in accordance with Section 2, Section 3
(if applicable) and Appendix C of these Agreement, without pro-ration, as soon as practicable after the Employment Termination Date, but in no event later than the Scheduled Settlement Date.
(iii) If settlement is by reason of termination due to death, settlement shall be to the beneficiary designated by the Employee for such purpose.
(c) Cancellation of RSUs upon Other Termination of Employment. If, on or before the end of Fiscal Year 3, the Employee’s status as an employee of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries terminates for any reason (or no reason), other than pursuant to Section 4(a) or (b) hereof, then the RSUs (including, for avoidance of doubt, any RSUs previously earned pursuant to Section 3) and all related Dividend Equivalents shall automatically be cancelled as of the close of business on the Employment Termination Date. If the Employee’s status as an employee of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries terminates for any reason (or no reason), other than pursuant to Section 4(a) or (b) hereof, after the end of Fiscal Year 3, then the Company shall settle the RSUs in accordance with Section 2, Section 3 (if applicable) and Appendix C of this Agreement on the Scheduled Settlement Date.
(d) Change in Control.
(i) Upon a Change in Control that occurs on or before the end of Fiscal Year 3 while Employee is employed by the Company or its Subsidiaries, 100% of the Target Units shall, subject to Section 18 of the Plan, vest and be settled in accordance with the following terms of this Section 4(d)(i), without regard to Sections 2, 3, or Appendix C hereof. Following the Change in Control, the RSUs shall vest based solely on the passage of time and the Employee’s continued employment with the Company (including any successor to the Company resulting from the Change in Control) and its Subsidiaries as follows: (x) if the Change in Control happens on or before the first anniversary of the Grant Date, the RSUs shall vest in substantially equal thirds on the first, second and third anniversaries of the Grant Date; (y) if the Change in Control happens after the first anniversary of the Grant Date but on or before the second anniversary of the Grant Date, the RSUs shall vest in substantially equal halves on the second and third anniversaries of the Grant Date; and (z) if the Change in Control happens after the second anniversary of the Grant Date, the RSUs shall vest in their entirety on the third anniversary of the Grant Date. The RSUs shall be subject to all other terms and conditions of this Agreement; provided, however, that if, on or within two (2) years after the date of the Change in Control and prior to when the RSUs have vested in full, the Employee experiences a Qualifying Termination Without Cause, or the Employee’s status as an employee of the Company (including any successor to the Company resulting from the Change in Control) or any of its Subsidiaries is terminated as a result of the Employee’s death or Disability or pursuant to Section 4(a) above, then the RSUs shall automatically vest in full as of the Employment Termination Date. Settlement of any RSUs (and any related Dividend Equivalents) that vest pursuant to this Section 4(d)(i) shall occur on or as soon as administratively practicable (but,
subject to Section 19 below, in no event later than 2.5 months) after the applicable vesting date. For purposes of the preceding sentence, a “Qualifying Termination Without Cause” shall mean the Employee’s status as an employee of the Company (including any successor to the Company resulting from the Change in Control) or any of its subsidiaries is terminated by the Company without Cause at a time when the Employee is meeting performance expectations, as determined by the Company in its sole discretion.
(ii) Upon a Change in Control that occurs after the end of Fiscal Year 3 and prior to the Scheduled Settlement Date, the Company shall settle the RSUs in accordance with Section 2, Section 3 (if applicable) and Appendix C of this Agreement, without pro ration, as soon as practicable after the Change in Control, but in no event later than the Scheduled Settlement Date.
(e) Recoupment and Forfeiture. Settlement of all or a portion of the Award pursuant to this Section 4 is subject to the forfeiture provisions of this Section 4. Settlement of all or a portion of the Award is subject to recoupment by the Company pursuant to Section 6.
(f) Leave of Absence. If the Employee is granted a leave of absence (including a military leave of absence), the Employee and the Company each reasonably anticipate that the Employee will return to active employment and either (x) the leave of absence is to be for not more than six months or (y) at all times during the leave of absence the Employee has a statutory or contractual right to return to work, then for purposes of this Award: (i) while on leave of absence the Employee shall be treated as if he were an active employee; (ii) if the Employee’s leave of absence is terminated and the Employee does not timely return to active employment, the date of the end of the leave of absence shall be treated as the Employment Termination Date; (iii) if the Employee’s leave of absence is terminated and the Employee timely returns to active employment, he shall be treated as if active employment had continued uninterrupted during the leave of absence; and (iv) if the Employee’s leave of absence continues to the Scheduled Settlement Date or any other date for settlement of the RSUs as provided under this Award, any RSUs which the Employee would otherwise be entitled to receive if he were an active employee shall be settled on such date.
5. Withholding and Taxes
(a) If the Company and/or the Employer are obligated to withhold an amount on account of any federal, state or local tax imposed as a result of the grant or settlement of the RSUs pursuant to this Agreement (collectively, “Taxes”), including, without limitation, any federal, state or other income tax, or any F.I.C.A., state disability insurance tax or other employment tax (the date upon which the Company and/or the Employer becomes so obligated shall be referred to herein as the “Withholding Date”), then the Employee shall pay to the Company on the Withholding Date, the aggregate amount that the Company and the Employer are so obligated to withhold, as such amount shall be determined by the Company (the “Withholding Liability”), which payment shall be made by the automatic cancellation by the Company of a portion of the RSU Shares; provided that the Company is not then prohibited from
purchasing or acquiring such shares of Common Stock (such shares to be valued on the basis of the aggregate Fair Market Value thereof on the Withholding Date, plus the value of the Dividend Equivalents associated with such shares on the Withholding Date); and provided further that the RSU Shares to be cancelled shall be those that would otherwise have been delivered to the Employee the soonest upon settlement of the RSUs; and provided further, however, that the Employee may, in a required withholding tax election period, irrevocably elect to pay to the Company via stock plan administrator, by check or wire transfer delivered on or before the Withholding Date, or any date required by the stock plan administrator, an amount equal to or greater than the Withholding Liability.
(b) The Employee acknowledges that neither the Company nor the Employer has made any representation or given any advice to the Employee with respect to Taxes.
6. Recoupment and Forfeiture
(a) Refund of Stock Value; Forfeiture of RSUs.
(i) Refund of Stock Value. If the Employee breaches any of the covenants set forth in Section 6(b)(i), (ii) or hereof during the Applicable Restrictive Period for any Settlement Date, then, if the RSUs were settled within the one year period prior to the occurrence of such event, the Employee shall immediately deliver to the Company an amount in cash equal to the (i) aggregate Fair Market Value, determined as of such Settlement Date, of all RSU Shares which were delivered to the Employee or cancelled in payment of Taxes on such Settlement Date and (ii) Dividend Equivalents paid to the Employee in respect of the RSU Shares.
(ii) Forfeiture of RSUs. If the Employee breaches any of the covenants set forth in Section 6(b)(i), (ii) or (iii) hereof prior to the Settlement Date for the RSUs, the RSUs and all related Dividend Equivalents shall be terminated and forfeited.

The Employee agrees to take all reasonable steps and precautions to prevent any unauthorized disclosure, use, copying or duplication of Confidential Information.
(ii) Non-Solicitation of the Company’s Employees, Clients, and Prospective Clients. During the time of the Employee’s employment and for a period of 24 months thereafter, the Employee shall not, without the express, prior

(d) Effect on Other Rights and Remedies. The rights of the Company set forth in this Section 6 shall not limit or restrict in any manner any rights or remedies which the Company or any of its affiliates may have under law or under any separate employment, confidentiality or other agreement with the Employee or otherwise with respect to the events described in Section 6(b) hereof.

If the Employee has received this or any other document related to the Plan translated into a language other than English, and the translated version is different than the English version, the English version will control.
18. Entire Agreement; Amendment and Waivers.
This Agreement embodies the entire understanding and agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and no promise, condition, representation or warranty, express or implied, not stated or incorporated by reference herein, shall bind either party hereto. None of the terms and conditions of this Agreement may be amended, modified, waived or canceled except by a writing, signed by the parties hereto specifying such amendment, modification, waiver or cancellation. A waiver by either party at any time of compliance with any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall not be considered a modification, cancellation or consent to a future waiver of such terms and conditions or of any preceding or succeeding breach thereof, unless expressly so stated.
19. Section 409A Compliance.
Payments under this Agreement are designed to be made in a manner that is exempt from or compliant with Section 409A of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”) as a “short-term deferral,” and the provisions of this Agreement will be administered, interpreted and construed accordingly (or disregarded to the extent such provision cannot be so administered, interpreted, or construed).
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, if, upon the advice of its counsel, the Company determines that the settlement of an RSU Share pursuant to this Agreement is or may become subject to the additional tax under Section 409A(a)(1)(B) of the Code or any other taxes or penalties imposed under Section 409A (“409A Taxes”) as applicable at the time such settlement is otherwise required under this Agreement, then such payment may be delayed to the extent necessary to avoid 409A Taxes. In particular:
(a) if the Employee is a specified employee within the meaning of Section 409A(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Code on the date of the Employee’s “separation from service” (other than due to death) within the meaning of Section 1.409A-1(h) of the Treasury Regulations, such settlement shall be delayed until the earlier of (i) the first business day following the expiration of six months from the Employee’s separation from service, (ii) the date of the Employee’s death, or (iii) such earlier date as complies with the requirements of Section 409A (the “Settlement Delay Period”); and
(b) if all or any part of such RSU Share has been converted into cash pursuant to Section 8 hereof, then:
(i) upon settlement of such RSU Share, such cash shall be increased by an amount equal to interest thereon for the Settlement Delay Period at a rate equal to the default rate credited to amounts deferred under the Company’s Deferred Compensation Plan; provided, however, that such rate shall be calculated on a monthly average basis rather than a daily basis; and
(ii) the Company shall fund the payment of such cash to the Employee upon settlement of such RSU Share, including the interest to be paid with respect thereto (collectively, the “Delayed Cash Payment”), by establishing and irrevocably funding a trust for the benefit of the Employee, but only if the establishment of such trust does not result in any taxes or penalties becoming due under Section 409A(b). Such trust shall be a grantor trust described in Section 671 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and intended not to cause tax to be incurred by the Employee until amounts are paid out from the trust to the Employee. The trust shall provide for distribution of amounts to the Employee in order to pay taxes, if any, that become due on the amounts as to which payment is being delayed during the Settlement Delay Period pursuant to this Section 19, but only to the extent permissible under Section 409A of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code without the imposition of 409A Taxes. The establishment and funding of such trust shall not affect the obligation of the Company to pay the Delayed Cash Payment pursuant to this Section 19.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this Agreement to be duly executed as of the Grant Date.
