Restricted Stock Unit Award Terms and Conditions
The following terms and conditions apply to the Restricted Stock Units granted to you by the Company, as specified in the accompanying Restricted Stock Unit Award Agreement (the “Award Agreement”).
1.Award of Restricted Stock Units. The Company has issued to you the number of Restricted Stock Units set forth above in the Award Agreement, effective on the Grant Date, and subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Award Agreement and the Restricted Stock Unit Award Terms and Conditions, including any special terms and conditions for your country of residence contained in the Appendix to these Restricted Stock Unit Award Terms and Conditions (together, the “Award Documents”), and the Plan (which is incorporated herein by reference).
2.Restricted Stock Units Non-Transferable. Restricted Stock Units (and related rights) may not be sold, assigned, alienated, transferred by gift or otherwise, pledged, hypothecated, or otherwise disposed of, by operation of law or otherwise. Any attempt to assign, alienate, transfer, pledge, sell or otherwise dispose of the Restricted Stock Units or its related rights shall be ineffective and, if any such attempt is made, the Restricted Stock Units will be forfeited and all of your rights under the Plan and the Award Documents shall immediately terminate without any payment or consideration by the Company.
3.Vesting. Unless otherwise provided in the Plan, your Restricted Stock Units shall vest in accordance with the Vesting Schedule and Special Vesting Events set forth in the Award Agreement.
4.Payment. Payment in respect of vested Restricted Stock Units shall be made at the time(s) and in the form(s) set forth in the Award Agreement. Any distribution or delivery to be made to you under the Award Documents will, if you are then deceased, be made to the administrator or executor of your estate. Any such administrator or executor must furnish the Company with (a) written notice of his or her status as transferee, and (b) evidence satisfactory to the Company to establish the validity of the transfer and compliance with any laws or regulations pertaining to said transfer.
5.Termination of Service; Forfeiture. Upon the termination of your continued employment or service for any reason, any Restricted Stock Units that have not vested or are not eligible to vest in the future in accordance with Section 3 and the Award Agreement (after taking into account the Special Vesting Events) shall immediately be forfeited. Upon forfeiture, you shall have no further rights with respect to such Restricted Stock Units. If you reside outside of the United States, in the event of termination of your employment or service (regardless of the reason for such termination and whether or not in breach of employment laws in the country where you reside or are employed or provide services or the terms of your employment agreement, if any, and whether or not later found to be invalid), your right to vest in the Restricted Stock Units under the Plan, if any, will terminate effective as of the date that you are no longer actively providing services and will not be extended by any notice period mandated under employment laws in the country where you reside or are employed or provide services (e.g., active employment would not include any contractual notice period or any period of “garden leave” or similar period mandated in the country in which you reside or are employed or provide services or the terms of your employment agreement, if any); the Administrator shall have the exclusive discretion to determine when you are no longer actively

providing services for purposes of the Restricted Stock Units (including whether or not you may still be considered as actively providing services while on an approved leave of absence).
6. Tax Treatment; Section 409A. You may incur tax liability as a result of the receipt of Restricted Stock Units and payments thereunder. You should consult your own tax adviser for tax advice. You acknowledge that the Administrator, in the exercise of its sole discretion and without your consent, may amend or modify the Award Documents in any manner, and delay the payment of any amounts thereunder, to the minimum extent necessary to satisfy the requirements of Section 409A. The Company will provide you with notice of any such amendment or modification. This Section 6 does not, and shall not be construed so as to, create any obligation on the part of the Company to adopt any such amendments or to take any other actions or to indemnify you for any failure to do so.
7.Tax Withholding. You shall make appropriate arrangements with the Company to provide for payment of all federal, state, local or foreign taxes of any kind required by law to be withheld in respect of your Restricted Stock Units. Such arrangements may include, but are not limited to, the payment of cash directly to the Company, withholding by the Company from other cash payments of any kind otherwise due you, withholding from proceeds of the sale of Shares acquired upon exercise either through a voluntary sale or through a mandatory sale arranged by the Company (on your behalf pursuant to this authorization without further consent), or share withholding as described below. Subject to the prior approval of the Administrator, which may be withheld by the Administrator in its sole discretion, you may be permitted to satisfy the statutory withholding obligations, in whole or in part, (i) by having the Company withhold shares otherwise issuable to you or (ii) by delivering to the Company shares of Common Stock already owned by you. The shares delivered or withheld shall have an aggregate Fair Market Value not in excess of the minimum statutory total tax withholding obligations. In addition, to the extent provided by the Plan, you may elect to have the Company perform additional voluntary tax withholding through the withholding or delivery of shares up to the maximum statutory tax rates in your applicable jurisdictions. The Fair Market Value of the shares used for tax withholding purposes shall be determined by the Company as of the date on which taxation occurs. Shares used for tax withholding purposes must be vested and cannot be subject to any repurchase, forfeiture, or other similar requirements. Any election to withhold or deliver shares shall be irrevocable, made in writing, signed by you, and shall be subject to any restrictions or limitations that the Administrator, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate. Further, if you become subject to tax in more than one jurisdiction between the Grant Date and the date of any relevant taxable or tax withholding event, as applicable, you acknowledge that the Company and/or its Subsidiaries (or former employer, as applicable) may be required to withhold or account for federal, state, local or foreign taxes of any kind in more than one jurisdiction.
8.Acknowledgments. If you reside outside the U.S., the following additional provisions shall apply:
a.the Restricted Stock Units and the Shares subject to the Restricted Stock Units are extraordinary items that do not constitute compensation of any kind for services of any kind rendered to the Company or you, and are outside the scope of your employment or service contract, if any;

c.no claim or entitlement to compensation or damages shall arise from forfeiture of the Restricted Stock Units resulting from termination of your employment or services by the Company or its Subsidiaries (whether or not in breach of employment laws in the country where you resides and whether or not later found to be invalid) and in consideration of the Restricted Stock Units to which you are otherwise not entitled, you irrevocably agree never to institute any claim against the Company or its Subsidiaries, waive your ability, if any, to bring any such claim, and releases the Company and its Subsidiaries from any such claim; if, notwithstanding the foregoing, any such claim is allowed by a court of competent jurisdiction, then, by participating in the Plan, you shall be deemed irrevocably to have agreed not to pursue such claim and agrees to execute any and all documents necessary to request dismissal or withdrawal of such claims.
