Formula A = (2,400/3*50%*.85) + (2,400/3*100%*1.00) + (2,400/3*120%*1.15)
= 340 + 800 + 1,104 = 2,244 PRSUs
Formula B = 2,400 * 120% * 1.15 = 3,312 PRSUs
Formula B > Formula A so,
Total PRSUs vested = 3,312 PRSUs
4.Vesting on Termination of Employment, Death, Disability, Retirement and Change in Control.
i.General. Unless otherwise provided in this Section 4, any unvested PRSUs shall be forfeited immediately upon the date that Participant terminates his or her Service or otherwise ceases to be a Participant Eligible to Vest (“Termination Date”). Unless otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement or determined by the Committee or its designee, Participant’s right to vest in the PRSUs under the Plan, if any, will terminate as of such Termination Date and will not be extended by any notice period.
ii.Participant’s Death. Notwithstanding any provision in the Plan to the contrary, if a Participant dies while providing Service, the PRSUs shall immediately vest based on the banked amounts for those Performance Year(s) completed and vest at Target for any uncompleted Performance Year. The vested portion of the PRSUs shall be delivered to the executor or administrator of Participant’s estate or, if none, to the person(s) entitled to receive the vested PRSUs under Participant’s will or the laws of descent or distribution, and the unvested portion of the PRSUs shall be forfeited
iii.Participant’s Disability. Notwithstanding any provision in the Plan to the contrary, if a Participant terminates Service due to Disability, the PRSUs shall vest in full based on the banked amounts for those Performance Year(s) completed and vest at Target for any uncompleted Performance Year.
iv.Participant’s Retirement. If the Participant’s status as an employee of the Company and all Affiliates terminates by reason of a Covered Retirement, as defined below, the PRSUs shall immediately vest based on the banked amounts for those Performance Year(s) completed prior to the Participant’s date of retirement plus the pro-rata of the Target for any uncompleted Performance Year (number of days employed during the Performance Year divided 365 multiplied by the Target for the uncompleted Performance Year). For purposes hereof, a “Covered Retirement” is the voluntary termination of a Retirement Eligible Individual who has provided the Company not less than six months’ prior notice of such employee’s intent to retire from the Company or an Affiliate. A “Retirement Eligible Individual” means an employee of the Company or an Affiliate who has attained at least 55 years of age and who has a combined age and years of credited employment service with the Company and/or all Affiliates of 65 years. This Section 4(d) shall not apply to any termination of Service during the 12-month period following the Grant Date.
v.Qualifying Termination. Upon a Qualifying Termination, unvested PRSUs that otherwise would have vested within six months of the Participant’s Termination Date shall vest on the Participant’s Termination Date in full at the sum of the banked amounts for those Performance Year(s) completed (if any) plus Target for any uncompleted Performance Year(s). Qualifying Termination shall mean, with respect to the Participant, an involuntary termination of employment with the Company or its Affiliates other than a termination by reason of death, Disability, Covered Retirement, Change in Control, or for Cause.
vi.Change in Control. In the event of a Change in Control, the PRSU will convert to time-based RSUs based on the greater of (i) the sum of the Target for each Performance Year or (ii) the sum of the banked amounts plus Target for uncompleted Performance Year(s). Vesting of the time-based RSUs will assume the vesting schedule of the original PRSU award. The time-based RSUs as so converted:
i.Will automatically accelerate and vest in full if within the 24-month period following the Change in Control, the Participant is terminated by the Company or the continuing entity or any of its Affiliates without Cause;
ii.Will automatically accelerate and vest in full at the Change in Control if this Agreement is not assumed or replaced by the acquirer/continuing entity or replaced by other terms or awards deemed by the Compensation Committee to be appropriate; or
iii.Will vest on the third anniversary of the Grant Date, if vesting has not otherwise been accelerated as provided above.
5.Non-Transferability. This Agreement or the rights hereunder may not be Transferred.
6.No Dividends. Participant shall not be entitled to receive dividends or dividend equivalents with respect to the number of unvested Ordinary Shares covered by the PRSUs.
7.No Security Holder Rights. Participant shall have no rights as a security holder with respect to the unvested Ordinary Shares covered by the PRSUs.

The Participant acknowledges that the Company has the right to require Participant to remit to the Company an amount sufficient to satisfy his or her minimum federal, state, local and foreign withholding tax requirements, or to deduct from all payments under the Plan amounts sufficient to satisfy such minimum withholding tax requirements. Participant further acknowledges that the ultimate liability for all federal, state, local and foreign income taxes, social insurance, payroll tax, or other tax-related items related to the Participant’s participation in the Plan is and
remains the Participant’s responsibility and may exceed the amount actually withheld by the Company.
9.Withholding. Participant authorizes the Company and/or its Subsidiaries, or their respective agents, at their discretion, to satisfy the Participant’s tax obligations that must be withheld by the Company and/or its Subsidiaries by withholding in Ordinary Shares to be issued upon vesting of the PRSUs, or in the sole discretion of the Company, by any other appropriate method.

Participant accepts that the Personal data will be administered and processed by the Company or any other agent or person designated by the Company. Participant is entitled to request access to the data referring to the Participant and held by the Company and to request the amendment or deletion of such data.

Participant understands that under this Agreement, grants of PRSUs are made at the complete discretion of the Company pursuant to the Plan. The offer to participate in the Plan does not constitute an acquired right. Nothing in this Agreement shall confer on any Participant any right to continue in the employment of the Company or its Subsidiaries or interfere in any way with the right of the Company or its Subsidiaries to terminate such Participant’s employment at any time for any reason or to continue such Participant’s present (or any other) rate of compensation. The grant of the PRSUs under any award to any Participant is a one-time benefit and shall not create any rights in such Participant to any subsequent awards by the Company, no award hereunder shall be considered a condition of such Participant’s employment, and no profit with respect to an award shall be considered part of such Participant’s salary or compensation under any severance statute or other applicable law.
This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts (including by means of telecopied signature pages), all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same Agreement.

Calculation of Adjusted Earnings Per Share
Adjusted earnings per share (“Adjusted EPS”) is a non-GAAP financial measure1 reported in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K as well as in each of its quarterly earnings releases and earnings presentations.2
The Company defines Adjusted EPS as adjusted net income (“ANI”) divided by the dilutive weighted-average ordinary shares outstanding.
ANI is also a non-GAAP financial measure, and the Company defines ANI as net income (or loss), determined in accordance with GAAP, adjusted to exclude the following items: (i) Restructuring related and other3, (ii) Financing and other transaction costs4, (iii) Step-up depreciation and amortization5, (iv) Deferred loss/(gain), net on derivative instruments6, (v) Amortization of debt issuance costs7, and (vi) Deferred taxes and other tax related8.
Dilutive weighted-average ordinary shares is a financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP9.
1 Refers to a financial measure calculated and presented on the basis of methodologies other than in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).
2 Each of our Annual Reports on Form 10-K, quarterly earnings releases, and quarterly earnings presentations can be found in the “Investor Relations” section of the Company’s website, www.investors.sensata.com. Copies of our Annual Report on Form 10-K and our quarterly earnings releases can also be obtained from the SEC website, www.sec.gov.
3 Includes, for example, (i) amounts calculated in accordance with GAAP and presented in the ‘Restructuring and other charges, net’ line of the Company’s consolidated statement of operations, (ii) amounts recognized in the Company’s consolidated statement of operations that relate to contingent liabilities assumed in connection with a business combination, and (iii) other income, expenses, gains, and losses that relate to planned strategic actions or material transactions that management believes are either unique or unusual, or that impact the comparability of the Company’s operating results relative to prior period operating results or forecasted results.
4 Includes, for example, (i) the net loss (or gain) on debt financing, (ii) losses (or gains) related to the divestiture of a business, and (iii) transaction costs recognized in connection with a business combination transaction, each of which is calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
5 Refers to depreciation and amortization expense related to the step-up (or step-down) in value of tangible and intangible assets that are recognized in connection with business combination and asset acquisition transactions (i.e., as those terms are defined in GAAP).
6 Primarily includes the net loss (or gain) on commodity forward contracts, as calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
7 As calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
8 Refers to (i) the deferred provision for/(benefit from) income taxes, as calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, (ii) adjustments to unrecognized tax benefits that are recognized in the Company’s consolidated statement of operations, and (iii) withholding tax expense associated with the repatriation of the cash.
9 However, and for the avoidance of doubt, if in a particular period the Company reports a net loss, calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, certain adjustments are made to account for the dilutive and anti-dilutive effects of potentially outstanding equity securities.
ROIC = NOPAT divided by Total Invested Capital
NOPAT = adjusted EBIT minus adjusted taxes
Total Invested Capital = Average Trailing 5 Quarters of (Shareholder Equity + Total Long-Term Debt + Deferred Taxes) minus (Long-Term Capital Leases & Other Obligations)
