Offer Letter

Dear Tony:

I am pleased to confirm our offer to you to become Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer (Executive Band), based in Portland, OR, and reporting directly to the President and Chief Executive Officer. The effective date of your offer will be on a date mutually agreed between you and the company, but in no event later than June 8, 2020 (“Effective Date”), subject to the terms and conditions of this offer letter. This offer is contingent upon your appointment as an officer by the Board of Directors (the “Board”), approval by the Compensation Committee of the Board (the “CC”), your signature below, and satisfaction of the pre-employment requirements identified below.

In connection with your new role, you will be entitled to the following compensation and benefits package:


Base Salary: Your annual base salary will be $585,000. Base salary reviews occur annually, and any adjustments are generally at the end of the first quarter of the calendar year. Adjustments are based on your performance and other relevant factors. You will next be eligible for a base salary review in March of 2021.

Annual Incentive Compensation: Your target incentive compensation opportunity will be 90% of your base salary earnings during the year. Your 2020 annual incentive will be paid at no less than your pro-rated target incentive amount, based on the number of days you are employed during the year. Incentive compensation awards are paid in the first quarter of the following year (i.e., 2021 for 2020 services).

Annual Long-Term Incentive Awards: For 2020, you will be granted a long-term incentive (“LTI”) award on the Effective Date equal to a pro-rata portion of a $2M LTI target based on the number of days you are employed in the year 2020 (“Pro-Rata 2020 LTI Award”). With respect to your Pro-Rata 2020 LTI Award: 20% will be issued as time-based restricted stock units (“RSUs”), 30% will be issued as stock options (“Options”) and 50% will be issued as performance-based restricted stock units (“PRSUs”) with measurements and goals as implemented for the Resideo executive team. The RSUs, Options and PRSUs shall be granted under and subject to the terms of the applicable stock incentive plan and relevant award agreements delivered to you with this offer. The Options and RSUs will vest ratably over three (3) years on the anniversary of the grant date at a rate of one-third (1/3) per year, provided that you continue to be employed by Resideo on such vesting date (or as otherwise provided in the award agreement). The PRSUs will vest on the third anniversary of the grant date, subject to achievement of the performance goals and provided that you continue to be employed by Resideo on such vesting date (or as otherwise provided in the award agreement).

Beginning in 2021 you will be eligible for annual long-term incentive (“LTI”) awards with an initial target of $2M, consisting of Options, RSUs and PRSUs, or some combination thereof, as determined by the CC in its discretion. The actual size and mix of your annual LTI awards will be determined by the CC based on your performance and market factors, and Resideo and the CC reserve the right to modify the design or mix of the LTI award program in the future. The terms of all LTI awards are governed by the terms of the applicable stock plan and the relevant award agreements.


You will receive a sign-on award of 300,000 RSUs on the Effective Date. The RSUs shall be granted under and subject to the terms of the applicable stock incentive plan and relevant award agreement delivered to you with this offer. The RSUs will vest on the third and fourth anniversaries of the grant date at a rate of one-half (1/2) on each vesting date, provided that you continue to be employed by Resideo on such vesting date (or as otherwise provided in the award agreement).


You will also be entitled to the following Executive Benefits:



Excess Liability Insurance: Resideo will pay the annual premium for an Excess Liability Insurance policy that provides $5,000,000 of personal liability umbrella coverage per occurrence.

You
