You have been granted a restricted stock unit award under Sempra Energy’s <YEAR> Long Term Incentive Plan (the “Plan”). The award consists of the number of restricted stock units set forth on the Cover Page/Summary to this Award Agreement, and dividend equivalents with respect to the restricted stock units (described below). Capitalized terms used in this Award Agreement and not defined shall have the meaning set forth in the Plan.
Your restricted stock units represent the right to receive shares of Common Stock in the future, subject to the terms and conditions of your award. Your restricted stock units are not shares of Common Stock.
Each restricted stock unit represents the right to receive one share of Common Stock upon the vesting of the unit.
Unless and until they vest, your restricted stock units and any dividend equivalents will be subject to transfer restrictions and forfeiture and vesting conditions.
Subject to certain exceptions set forth herein, your restricted stock units (and dividend equivalents) will be forfeited effective immediately following such termination if your employment terminates before they vest; provided, however, that the Compensation Committee, in its sole discretion, may determine to vest you in all or a portion of such restricted stock units (subject to Code Section 409A requirements and the terms of the Plan).
See “Vesting/Forfeiture,” “Transfer Restrictions,” and “Termination of Employment” below.
