RESTRICTED STOCK AGREEMENT
|Restricted Stock||This Grant is an award of Stock in the number of shares set forth on the cover sheet of this Agreement, at the purchase price set forth on the cover sheet of this Agreement, and subject to the vesting and other conditions set forth in this Agreement and in the Plan (the “Restricted Stock”). The purchase price, if any, is deemed paid by your prior services to the Company and its Affiliates.|
|Nontransferability||To the extent not yet vested, your shares of Restricted Stock may not be sold, assigned, transferred, pledged, hypothecated, or otherwise encumbered, whether by operation of law or otherwise, nor may the shares of Restricted Stock be made subject to execution, attachment, or similar process. If you attempt to do any of these things, you will immediately and automatically forfeit your shares of Restricted Stock.|
The Company will issue your Restricted Stock in your name as of the Grant Date set forth on the cover sheet of this Agreement.
Your Restricted Stock will vest in accordance with the vesting schedule shown on the cover sheet, so long as you continue in Service on each applicable vesting date set forth on the cover sheet (each vesting date, a “Vesting Date”). Fractional shares shall be rounded to the nearest whole share but, if applicable, shall be rounded up or down on the last applicable Vesting Date so that you are eligible to vest in the total number of shares of Stock covered by the Grant; provided, you may not vest in more than the number of shares of Stock covered by the Grant, as set forth on the cover sheet of this Agreement.
|Trading Restrictions||If you are subject to any Company “blackout” policy or other trading restriction imposed by the Company (a “Restricted Period”) on an applicable Vesting Date, any vesting scheduled to occur on such date shall occur instead on the first subsequent date on which you are not subject to any such policy or restriction. For purposes of this provision, you acknowledge that you may be subject to a Restricted Period for any reason that the Company determines appropriate, including Restricted Periods generally applicable to employees or groups of employees or Restricted Periods applicable to you during an investigation of allegations of misconduct by you.|
Forfeiture of Unvested Stock
|Unless the termination of your Service triggers accelerated vesting or other treatment of your Grant pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, the Plan, or any other written agreement between the Company or Affiliate and you, in the event that your Service terminates for any reason, you will forfeit to the Company all of the shares of Restricted Stock subject to this Grant that have not yet vested or with respect to which all applicable restrictions and conditions have not lapsed.|
|Leaves of Absence|| |
For purposes of this Agreement, your Service does not terminate when you go on a bona fide employee leave of absence that was approved by the Company or an Affiliate in writing, if the terms of the leave provide for continued Service crediting, or when continued Service crediting is required by applicable law. However, your Service will be treated as terminating ninety (90) days after you went on employee leave, unless your right to return to active work is guaranteed by law or by a contract. Your Service terminates in any event when the approved leave ends unless you immediately return to active employee work.
|The Company determines, in its sole discretion, which leaves count for this purpose and when your Service terminates for all purposes under the Plan.|
The issuance of the shares of Restricted Stock and shares of Stock under this Grant will be evidenced in such a manner as the Company, in its discretion, will deem appropriate, including, without limitation, book-entry or direct registration (including transaction advices) or the issuance of one or more share certificates. As your interest in the Restricted Stock vests, the recordation of the number of shares of Restricted Stock and shares of Stock attributable to you will be appropriately modified.
If and to the extent that the shares of Restricted Stock are represented by share certificates rather than book entry, all certificates representing the shares of Restricted Stock issued under this Agreement shall, where applicable, have endorsed appropriate legends.
|Withholding Taxes|| |
You agree, as a condition of this Grant, that you will make acceptable arrangements to pay any withholding or other taxes that may be due as a result of the payment of dividends on or the vesting of shares of Restricted Stock or otherwise relating to this Grant. In the event that the Company or any Affiliate determines that any federal, state, local, or foreign tax or withholding payment is required relating to this Grant, the Company or any Affiliate will have the right to require such payments from you or withhold such amounts from other payments due to you from the Company or any Affiliate. To satisfy this withholding obligation, the Company may provide you with the opportunity, in its discretion, to have the Company withhold shares of Stock otherwise issuable to you or by delivering to the Company shares of Stock already owned by you. If the Company provides you with the foregoing opportunity and you fail to make an election to do either, the Company may determine what method to use, including by withholding shares of Stock otherwise issuable to you. The shares of Stock so delivered or withheld must have an aggregate Fair Market Value equal to the withholding obligation and may not be subject to any repurchase, forfeiture, unfulfilled vesting, or other similar requirements.
Under Section 83 of the Code, the difference between the purchase price paid for the shares of Stock and their Fair Market Value on the date any forfeiture restrictions applicable to such shares lapse will be reportable as ordinary income at that time. For this purpose, “forfeiture restrictions” include the forfeiture as to unvested Stock described above. You may elect to be taxed at the time the shares of Restricted Stock are acquired, rather than when such shares cease to be subject to such forfeiture restrictions, by filing an election under Section 83(b) of the Code with the Internal Revenue Service within thirty (30) days after the Grant Date. You will have to make a tax payment to the extent the purchase price is less than the Fair Market Value of the shares on the Grant Date. No tax payment will have to be made to the extent the purchase price is at least equal to the Fair Market Value of the shares on the Grant Date. The form for making this election is attached as Exhibit A hereto. Failure to make this filing within the thirty (30)-day period will result in the recognition of ordinary income by you (in the event the Fair Market Value of the shares as of the Vesting Date exceeds the purchase price) as the forfeiture restrictions lapse.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IT IS YOUR SOLE RESPONSIBILITY, AND NOT THE COMPANY’S, TO FILE A TIMELY ELECTION UNDER CODE SECTION 83(b), EVEN IF YOU REQUEST THE COMPANY OR ITS REPRESENTATIVES TO MAKE THIS FILING ON YOUR BEHALF. YOU ARE RELYING SOLELY ON YOUR OWN ADVISORS WITH RESPECT TO THE DECISION AS TO WHETHER OR NOT TO FILE ANY CODE SECTION 83(b) ELECTION.
|Retention Rights||This Agreement and the Grant do not give you the right to be retained or employed by the Company or any Affiliate in any capacity. Unless otherwise specified in an employment or other written agreement between the Company or any Affiliate and you, the Company and any Affiliate reserve the right to terminate your Service at any time and for any reason.|
|Stockholder Rights|| |
You have the right to vote the shares of Restricted Stock and to receive any dividends declared or paid with respect to such shares of Restricted Stock. Any distributions you receive as a result of any stock split, stock dividend, combination of shares, or other similar transaction shall be deemed to be a part of the Restricted Stock and subject to the same conditions and restrictions applicable thereto. The Committee may, in its sole discretion, require any dividends paid on the Restricted Stock to be reinvested in shares of Stock, which the Committee may, in its sole discretion, deem to be a part of the shares of Restricted Stock and subject to the same conditions and restrictions applicable thereto.
No adjustments are made for dividends, distributions, or other rights if the applicable record date occurs before your certificate is issued (or an appropriate book entry is made), except as described in the Plan.
Your Restricted Stock will be subject to the terms of any applicable agreement of merger, liquidation, or reorganization in the event the Company is subject to such corporate activity.
|Forfeiture of Rights|| |
If during your term of Service you should take actions in competition with the Company, the Company shall have the right to cause a forfeiture of your unvested shares of Restricted Stock, and with respect to those shares of Restricted Stock vesting during the period commencing twelve (12) months prior to your termination of Service with the Company due to taking actions in competition with the Company, the right to cause a forfeiture of those vested shares of Stock.
Unless otherwise specified in an employment or other written agreement between the Company or any Affiliate and you, you take actions in competition with the Company if you directly or indirectly, own, manage, operate, join, or control, or participate in the ownership, management, operation, or control of, or are a proprietor, director, officer, stockholder, member, partner, or an employee or agent of, or a consultant to any business, firm, corporation, partnership, or other entity which competes with any business in which the Company or any of its Affiliates is engaged during your employment or other relationship with the Company or its Affiliates or at the time of your termination of Service. Under the prior sentence, ownership of less than one percent (1%) of the securities of a public company shall not be treated as an action in competition with the Company.
In addition, if you should take actions in violation or breach of or in conflict with (i) an employment agreement, (ii) a non-competition agreement, (iii) an agreement prohibiting solicitation of Employees or clients of the Company or an Affiliate, (iv) a confidentiality obligation with respect to the Company or an Affiliate, or (v) a Company policy or procedure, the Company has the right to cause an immediate forfeiture of the gain, if any, you have realized under this Agreement and your rights to this Grant, and the Grant will immediately expire.
This Grant is subject to mandatory repayment by you to the Company to the extent you are or in the future become subject to (i) any Company “clawback” or recoupment policy or (ii) any law, rule, or regulation that requires the repayment by you to the Company of compensation paid by the Company to you in the event that you fail to comply with, or violate, the terms or requirements of such policy or law, rule, or regulation.
If the Company is required to prepare an accounting restatement due to the material noncompliance of the Company, as a result of misconduct, with any financial reporting requirement under the securities laws and you knowingly engaged in the misconduct, were grossly negligent in engaging in the misconduct, knowingly failed to prevent the misconduct, or were grossly negligent in failing to prevent the misconduct, you will reimburse the Company the amount of any payment in settlement of this Grant earned or accrued during the twelve (12)-month period following the first public issuance or filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (whichever first occurred) of the financial document that contained such material noncompliance.
|Applicable Law||This Agreement will be interpreted and enforced under the laws of the State of New Jersey, other than any conflicts or choice of law rule or principle that might otherwise refer construction or interpretation of this Agreement to the substantive law of another jurisdiction.|

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Plan or this Agreement, neither the Company, its Affiliates, the Board, nor the Committee will have any obligation to take any action to prevent the assessment of any excise tax or penalty on you under Code Section 409A, and neither the Company, an Affiliate, the Board, the Committee, nor any person acting on behalf of the Company, an Affiliate, the Board, or the Committee will be liable to you or to your estate or beneficiary by reason of any acceleration of income or any additional tax (including any interest and penalties), asserted by reason of the failure of the grant to satisfy the requirements of Code Section 409A or otherwise asserted with respect to the Grant.|
