DIRECTOR RESTRICTED STOCK UNIT AWARD AGREEMENT

IV, an exempted company incorporated under the laws of the Cayman Islands (the “Company”), and Katie J. Stanton (the “Participant”). The terms of this RSU Award Agreement shall be governed by the terms of the omnibus equity incentive plan to be adopted by the Company and submitted for approval by the Company’s shareholders in connection with the Company’s initial Business Combination (as defined below) (the “Plan”). Certain capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined are defined in Section 6 hereof.
1. Grant of Restricted Stock Units. The Company hereby grants to the Participant 100,000 restricted stock units (the “RSUs”), subject to all of the terms and conditions of this RSU Award Agreement and the Plan.
(a) Subject to Sections 2(b) and 7, the RSUs shall become vested in full upon the consummation of the Company’s initial Business Combination; provided that the Participant remains in continuous service as a member of the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) through the time that is immediately prior to the consummation of the Company’s initial Business Combination. In the event that the Company does not consummate a Business Combination prior to the date required under its Governing Documents, all RSUs will be automatically forfeited without consideration, and this RSU Award Agreement will be null and void.
(b) If the Participant’s service as a member of the Board is terminated for any reason prior to the date on which the Company’s initial Business Combination is consummated, then on the date of such termination from service (i) this RSU Award Agreement shall terminate and all rights of the Participant with respect to the RSUs shall immediately terminate, (ii) the RSUs shall be forfeited without payment of any consideration, and (iii) neither the Participant nor any of the Participant’s successors, heirs, assigns, or personal representatives shall thereafter have any further rights or interests in the RSUs.
3. Settlement. Each RSU granted hereunder shall represent the notional right to receive a single Ordinary Share and, upon a Domestication, if any, each RSU will be converted into the notional right to receive a single share of Common Stock. Vested RSUs will be settled in Ordinary Shares or shares of Common Stock, as applicable, on a date determined in the sole discretion of the Company that shall occur between January 1 and December 31 of the year following the year in which vesting occurs.
4. Equitable Adjustment. In the event of any Change in Capitalization (other than in connection with a Business Combination), an equitable substitution or proportionate adjustment shall be made in (i) the kind and number of Shares or other securities or the amount of cash or amount or type of other property subject to outstanding RSUs granted under this Agreement; and/or (ii) the terms and conditions of this RSU Award Agreement; provided, however, that any fractional shares resulting from the adjustment shall be eliminated. The Company is further authorized to make adjustments in the terms and conditions of, and the criteria included in, this RSU Award Agreement in recognition of unusual or infrequent events (including, without limitation, the events described in this Section 4, but excluding an initial Business Combination) affecting the Company or the financial statements of the Company, including but not limited to changes in the number or conversion rights associated with the Class B Shares or Warrants other than as contemplated hereby, or of changes in applicable laws, regulations, or accounting principles, whenever the Company determines that such adjustments are appropriate in order to prevent dilution or enlargement of the benefits or potential benefits intended to be made available under this RSU Award Agreement.
5. Voting and Other Rights. The Participant shall have no rights of a stockholder with respect to the RSUs (including the right to vote and the right to receive distributions or dividends) unless and until Shares are issued in respect thereof following the date on which they vest in accordance with Section 2(a) hereof; provided, that with respect to the period commencing on the Grant Date and ending on the date the Shares subject to such RSUs are issued pursuant to this RSU Award Agreement, the Participant shall be eligible to receive an amount equal to the product of (i) the number of Shares to be delivered as a result of such vesting, and (ii) the amount of cash distributed by the Company with respect to an outstanding Share during such period, which amount shall be paid to the Participant on the date such Shares are issued (provided that such amount shall not be paid to the extent that any RSUs do not become vested and Shares are not delivered). No interest or other earnings will be credited with respect to such payment.

The Participant hereby acknowledges that all decisions, determinations and interpretations of the Administrator in respect of the Plan, this RSU Award Agreement and the RSUs shall be final and conclusive. This RSU Award Agreement and the grant of RSUs hereunder is expressly contingent upon approval of the Plan and the overall share limit set forth therunder by the Company’s Board (or a designated committee thereof) and the Company’s shareholders. If the Plan is not so approved on or prior to the consummation of the Company’s initial Business Combination, this RSU Award Agreement shall be null and void ab initio.

8. Regulations and Other Approvals.
|i.||Any resale of the Shares received in respect of RSUs shall be made in compliance with the registration requirement of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or an applicable exemption therefrom, including, without limitation, the exemption provided by Rule 144 promulgated thereunder (or any successor rule, “Rule 144”).|

9. Participant Representations and Warranties. This RSU Award Agreement and the grant of RSUs hereunder is expressly conditioned on the Participant’s acceptance and agreement to the representations and warranties set forth in Annex A hereto. All representations and warranties contained in Annex A shall survive the execution of this RSU Award Agreement and the grant of the RSUs contemplated hereby. The Participant agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company from any liability, loss or expense (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees) if the Participant has breached any representation or warranty hereunder.
10. No Rights to Continuation of Service. Nothing in the Plan or this RSU Award Agreement shall confer upon the Participant any right to continue in the service of the Company or any Affiliate thereof or shall interfere with or restrict the right of the Company or its Affiliates to terminate the Participant’s service at any time for any reason whatsoever.
11. Taxes. The Participant understands that the Participant (and not the Company) shall be responsible for any tax liability that may arise as a result of the transactions contemplated by this RSU Award Agreement.
12. Section 409A and Section 457A. The intent of the parties is that the payments and benefits under this RSU Award Agreement comply with Section 409A of the Code and be exempt from Section 457A of the Code, to the extent subject thereto, and accordingly, to the maximum extent permitted, this RSU Award Agreement shall be interpreted and administered to be in compliance therewith or exempt therefrom, as applicable. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, the Participant shall not be considered to have terminated service with the Company for purposes of any payments under this RSU Award Agreement which are subject to Section 409A of the Code until the Participant would be considered to have incurred a “separation from service” from the Company within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code. Each amount to be paid or benefit to be provided under this RSU Award Agreement shall be construed as a separate identified payment for purposes of Section 409A of the Code. Without limiting the foregoing and notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, to the extent required in order to avoid accelerated taxation and/or tax penalties under Section 409A of the Code, amounts that would otherwise be payable and benefits that would otherwise be provided pursuant to this RSU Award Agreement or any other arrangement between the Participant and the Company during the six-month period immediately following the Participant’s separation from service shall instead be paid on the first business day after the date that is six months following the Participant’s separation from service (or, if earlier, the Participant’s date of death). The Company makes no representation that any or all of the payments described in this RSU Award Agreement will be exempt from or comply with Section 409A or Section 457A of the Code and makes no undertaking to preclude Section 409A or Section 457A of the Code from applying to any such payment. The Participant shall be solely responsible for the payment of any taxes and penalties incurred under Section 409A or Section 457A of the Code.
13. Governing Law. This RSU Award Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware.
14. RSU Award Agreement Binding on Successors. The terms of this RSU Award Agreement shall be binding upon the Participant and upon the Participant’s heirs, executors, administrators, personal representatives, transferees, assignees and successors in interest, and upon the Company and its successors and assignees, subject to the terms of the Plan.
15. No Assignment. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this RSU Award Agreement, neither this RSU Award Agreement nor any rights granted herein shall be assignable by the Participant.
16. Necessary Acts. The Participant hereby agrees to perform all acts, and to execute and deliver any other documents that may be reasonably necessary to carry out the provisions of this RSU Award Agreement, including but not limited to all acts and documents related to compliance with federal and/or state securities and/or tax laws.
17. Severability. Should any provision of this RSU Award Agreement be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, or enforceable only if modified, such holding shall not affect the validity of the remainder of this RSU Award Agreement, the balance of which shall continue to be binding upon the parties hereto with any such modification (if any) to become a part hereof and treated as though contained in this original RSU Award Agreement. Moreover, if one or more of the provisions contained in this RSU Award Agreement shall for any reason be held to be excessively broad as to scope, activity, subject or otherwise so as to be unenforceable, in lieu of severing such unenforceable provision, such provision or provisions shall be construed by the appropriate judicial body by limiting or reducing it or them, so as to be enforceable to the maximum extent compatible with the applicable law as it shall then appear, and such determination by such judicial body shall not affect the enforceability of such provisions or provisions in any other jurisdiction.
18. Entire Agreement. This RSU Award Agreement, the Plan and the letter agreement, dated the date hereof, between the Company and the Participant, contain the entire agreement and understanding among the parties as to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes any other agreements or representations, oral or otherwise, express or implied, with respect to the subject matter hereof.
19. Headings. Headings are used solely for the convenience of the parties and shall not be deemed to be a limitation upon or descriptive of the contents of any such Section.
20. Counterparts; Electronic Signature. This RSU Award Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original and all of which together shall be deemed to be one and the same instrument. The Participant’s electronic signature of this RSU Award Agreement shall have the same validity and effect as a signature affixed by the Participant’s hand.
21. Amendment. No amendment or modification hereof shall be valid unless it shall be in writing and signed by all parties hereto.
22. Waiver against Trust Account. The Participant acknowledges that the Participant has no right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to any monies held in the Trust Account or any other asset of the Company as a result of any liquidation of the Company with respect to the RSUs. The Participant hereby further acknowledges that the Participant shall have no right of set-off or any other right, title, interest or claim of any kind (“Claim”) in, or to any distribution of, the Trust Account and hereby agrees not to seek recourse, reimbursement, payment or satisfaction for any Claim against the Trust Account for any reason whatsoever. The Participant hereby waives any and all Claims against the Trust Account and any and all rights to seek access to the Trust Account.
