Form of Time-Based Restricted Stock Unit Award
RE/MAX HOLDINGS, INC. 2013 OMNIBUS INCENTIVE PLAN
NOTICE OF Restricted Stock Unit AWARD
You (the “Grantee”) have been granted an award of Restricted Stock Units (the “Award”), subject to the terms and conditions of this Notice of Restricted Stock Unit Award (the “Notice”), the RE/MAX Holdings, Inc. 2013 Omnibus Incentive Plan, as amended from time to time (the “Plan”) and the Restricted Stock Unit Agreement (the “Agreement”) attached hereto, as follows. Unless otherwise provided herein, the terms in this Notice shall have the same meaning as those defined in the Plan.
Date of Award:
Total Number of Restricted Stock Units Awarded (the “Units”):
Subject to the Grantee’s Continuous Service and other limitations set forth in this Notice, the Agreement and the Plan, the Units will “vest” in accordance with the following schedule (the “Vesting Schedule”):
In the event of a Corporate Transaction or a Change in Control in connection with which the Award is not assumed or converted into an equivalent award by the acquiring or successor entity (or a Parent thereof), the Units, to the extent outstanding and unvested, shall automatically become fully vested immediately prior to the effective date of such Corporate Transaction or Change in Control.
In the event of a Corporate Transaction or a Change in Control in connection with which the Award is assumed or converted into an equivalent award by the acquiring or successor entity (or a Parent thereof), if the Grantee’s Continuous Service is terminated by such entity (or an Affiliate thereof) without Cause during the 24-month period following such Corporate Transaction or Change in Control, the assumed or converted award shall automatically become fully vested on the day of such termination. For this purpose, “Cause” means, with respect to the termination by such entity (or an Affiliate thereof) of the Grantee’s Continuous Service, that such termination is for “Cause” as such term (or word of like import) is expressly defined in a then-effective written agreement between the Grantee and such entity (or an Affiliate thereof), or in the absence of such then-effective written agreement and definition, is based on, in the determination of the Administrator, the Grantee’s: (i) performance of any act or failure to perform any act in bad faith and to the detriment of such entity (or an Affiliate thereof); (ii) dishonesty, intentional misconduct or material breach of any agreement with such entity (or an Affiliate thereof); or (iii) commission of a crime involving dishonesty, breach of trust, or physical or emotional harm to any person.
In the event of the Grantee’s change in status from Employee to Consultant or Director, the determination of whether such change in status results in a termination of Continuous Service will be determined in accordance with Section 409A of the Code.
For purposes of this Notice and the Agreement, the term “vest” shall mean, with respect to any Units, that such Units are no longer subject to forfeiture to the Company. If the Grantee would become vested in a fraction of a Unit, such Unit shall not vest until the Grantee becomes vested in the entire Unit.
Except as otherwise provided above, vesting shall cease upon the date the Grantee terminates Continuous Service for any reason, excluding death or Disability. In the event the Grantee terminates Continuous Service for any reason, excluding death or Disability, any unvested Units held by the Grantee immediately upon such termination of the Grantee’s Continuous Service shall be forfeited and deemed reconveyed to the Company and the Company shall thereafter be the legal and beneficial owner of such reconveyed Units and shall have all rights and interest in or related thereto without further action by the Grantee.
If the Grantee’s Continuous Service terminates due to the Grantee’s death or Disability, the Units that would have vested on the vesting date next following the date of such termination of Continuous Services shall immediately become vested as of the date of such termination of Continuous Service, and all remaining unvested Units shall be forfeited and deemed reconveyed to the Company and the Company shall thereafter be the legal and beneficial owner of such reconveyed Units and shall have all rights and interest in or related thereto without further action by the Grantee.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Company and the Grantee have executed this Notice and agree that the Award is to be governed by the terms and conditions of this Notice, the Plan, and the Agreement.
