(ii)If Recipient is transferred to an Ineligible Position effective after the completion of the first fiscal year of the Performance Period and either (i) remains employed by the Company or an Affiliate through the end of the Performance Period or, if applicable, through the time of consummation of a Fundamental Transaction as set forth in Section 5(c) below, or (ii) thereafter ceases to be employed by the Company or an Affiliate at any time prior to the end of the Performance Period as a result of Recipient’s Permanent Disability or Special Retirement, Recipient shall remain eligible to receive, on (or as promptly as administratively practicable following) the Determination Date, a prorated portion of the Shares that would otherwise be issuable to Recipient under the Performance Share Award in the absence of such transfer to an Ineligible Position based on the actual achievement of the Performance Goals for each fiscal year during the Performance Period in which Recipient remained employed by the Company and not in an Ineligible Position; provided that the prorated amount for the year in which Recipient transfers to an Ineligible Position shall be determined based on the ratio of (x) the number of days elapsed from the beginning of the fiscal year to the date of transfer to an Ineligible Position over (y) the number of days in the fiscal year (and not reflecting
Agreement Approval – September 2015 Page 4

c) Change in Control of Company. If a Fundamental Transaction (as defined in the Plan) occurs prior to the end of the Performance Period while Recipient is employed by the Company or an Affiliate or remains entitled to receive Shares pursuant to Section 5(a) above, the Performance Period shall be terminated and Recipient shall be entitled to receive, immediately prior to the consummation of such Fundamental Transaction, the following number of Shares (the “CIC Earned Shares”):

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company determines that this Performance Share Award is “deferred compensation” for purposes of Section 409A and is not eligible for any exemption from or exception to Section 409A, and that the Fundamental Transaction is not also a “change in ownership”, “change in effective control” or a “change in the ownership of a substantial portion of the assets” of the Company under Section 409A, then the CIC Earned Shares (or a comparable amount of cash or acquiring company stock, depending on the consideration received by Company stockholders on such Fundamental Transaction) shall only be issued to Recipient on the date such Shares would have been issued pursuant to Section 4 if a Fundamental Transaction had not occurred), unless this Performance Share Award is terminated in a manner compliant with Section 409A.

(iv) Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if Recipient is a “specified employee” within the meaning of Section 409A, as determined under the Company’s established methodology for determining specified employees, on the date of Recipient’s termination of service at a time when this Performance Share Award pursuant its terms would be settled, then to the extent required in order to comply with Section 409A, shares of Common Stock that would be issued under this Performance Share Award (or any other amount due hereunder) at such termination of service shall not be issued before the first business day following the earlier of (x) the date that is six months following Recipient’s termination of employment and (y) the date of Recipient’s death.

b) Recipient acknowledges and agrees that the right to receive Shares pursuant to this Agreement is earned, among other applicable conditions/requirements, only by continuing as an employee at the will of the Company (not through the act of being hired, being granted the Performance Share Award or any other award or benefit) and that the Company has the right to reorganize, sell, spin-out or otherwise restructure one or more of its businesses or Affiliates at any time or from time to time, as it deems appropriate (a “reorganization”). Recipient acknowledges and agrees that such a reorganization could result in the termination of Recipient’s relationship as an employee to the Company or an Affiliate, or the termination of Affiliate status of Recipient’s employer and the loss of benefits available to Recipient under this Agreement, including but not limited to, the termination of the right to receive Shares under this Agreement.

Recipient acknowledges and agrees that the Policy applies to the Performance Share Award and that any payments or issuances of Shares are subject to recoupment pursuant to the Policy, including any amendments to the Policy and any recoupment obligations imposed by applicable law or regulation. This Agreement shall be deemed to include the restrictions imposed by the Policy.

In the case of a governmental, regulatory or administrative agency, commission, department or other governmental authority, the customer or prospective customer will be determined by reference to the specific program offices or activities for which the Company or an Affiliate provides (or may reasonably provide) goods or services.
c) Remedies. Recipient acknowledges and agrees that a breach of any of the promises or agreements contained in this Section 13 will result in immediate, irreparable and continuing damage to the Company for which there is no adequate remedy at law, and the Company or an Affiliate will be entitled to injunctive relief, a decree for specific performance, and other relief as may be proper, including money damages.
14. MISCELLANEOUS. This Agreement (together with the Award Grant Notice) contains the entire agreement of the parties with respect to its subject matter, provided, however, that if Recipient and the Company are parties to an existing written agreement addressing the subject matter of Section 13, such agreement shall control with respect to such subject matter until the termination thereof, at which time Section 13 shall control.
