For the 2020 performance year you will be eligible for a full year (i.e., not prorated) award under the STIC . Actual payment under the STIC, if any, will be based on the degree of achievement of established Company and/or business unit objectives and your individual performance and contribution. Awards may be less than the communicated target and subject to your manager’s assessment of your performance. Please note that target opportunities and eligibility are not commitments to pay any award, as all payments under the STIC are discretionary. To receive a payment for the 2020 performance year and thereafter, you must be employed by S&P Global, or any of its business units, on the STIC payout
date (bonuses under the STIC are payable on or before March 15 of the year following the performance year).

Such grant is conditioned upon your start date occurring on or before July 1, 2020, or such other date as may be approved in writing by the CEO of S&P Global. The long-term incentive awards will be granted on the first business day of the month following your start date. For 2021 and thereafter, you will be eligible to receive a long-term incentive grant that, subject to board approval, will be in an amount to be determined by the CEO of S&P Global based on his or her evaluation of your performance.
The Company reserves the right to forfeit, recover or delay payment of awards pending the outcome of disciplinary procedures or investigations to matters that could be considered grounds for termination of employment or pay recovery as stated by the Pay Recovery Policy.

As a new hire, and annually thereafter, you will be required to affirm that you have read and understand the S&P Global Code of Business Ethics (COBE).

The purpose of the Codes of Ethics and the Securities Disclosure Policy are to establish guidelines reasonably designed to identify and prevent recipients from breaching any applicable fiduciary duties and to deal with other situations that may pose a conflict or potential conflict of interest. The Securities Disclosure Policy applies to employees and members of their Immediate Family. Employees and members of their Immediate Family will be required to use a Designated Broker(s) for all Securities trading. Employees and their Immediate Family are required to pre-clear personal Securities trades and a 30 day hold policy applies. In addition, employees or Immediate Family members will not be permitted to hold Securities that may pose a conflict of interest or the appearance of a conflict, including Securities on specific global Restricted Lists. Any questions relating to the "Codes" or the Securities Disclosure Policy should be directed to the Compliance team at 212−438−4218.
You and the Company agree to provide 60 days written notice of termination for reasons other than an Adverse Change in Conditions of Employment or Cause (as those terms are defined in the Severance Plan). This letter is not an offer of a contract of employment. It is the Company's policy that all employment is "at-will". This means either the employee or the Company may terminate employment for any reason at any time, subject only to the notice provision expressly stated above. No change in the "at-will" employment relationship is valid unless it is contained in a written agreement signed by an authorized officer of S&P Global.
Federal law requires U.S. employers to verify that all new employees are eligible to work in the United States pursuant to the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. As a condition of your employment, as set forth by the Act, you will be required to provide proof of identity and employment authorization within three (3) days of your Start Date by completing the Form I-9.

You acknowledge that you have reviewed and understand the terms of the Agreement for the Protection of Company Interests, and that by accepting this offer letter you are accepting the terms in Attachment A, including the non-competition, non-solicitation of clients, non-solicitation of employees, confidentiality and intellectual property ownership provisions.
You represent that you are free to enter into an employment relationship with the Company and to perform the services required of you. You also represent that you have disclosed to the Company and provided copies of any agreement you may have with any third party (such as a former employer) which
may limit your ability to work for the Company, or which otherwise could create a conflict of interest with the Company. You further represent that you are not bound by any non-competition, non-disclosure, non-solicitation, or similar obligations, except for those contained in the written agreements you have provided to the Company. Finally, please understand that you are strictly prohibited from using or disclosing any confidential information or materials of any former employer or other third party to whom you have an obligation of confidentiality and from violating any lawful agreement that you may have with any third party.
You will receive an email requesting you to provide an e-signature to accept this offer. You must complete this step in order to move forward in the hiring process.

Agreement for the Protection of Company Interests
By accepting the terms of employment with S&P Global Inc., including its divisions, subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “S&P Global” or the “Company”), as set forth in the offer letter to which this Agreement for the Protection of Company Interests (“Agreement”) is attached, you agree that, for good consideration stated herein, including but not limited to your employment and continued employment, your access to confidential information as an employee of the Company, and/or training provided by the Company, you and the Company agree as follows:
1. Acknowledgements. You acknowledge and agree that, in connection with your responsibilities as a senior executive with S&P Global, you have or will have, among other things, developed relationships and access to Confidential Information (defined below), in each case involving significant Company expense, that would provide you and/or a competitor with an unfair competitive advantage if you were to leave the Company and thereafter provide services to a competitor of S&P Global, misuse or divulge confidential information, or solicit clients or employees. You therefore agree that the post-employment restrictions contained in this Agreement: (a) are reasonably tailored to protect S&P Global’s legitimate business interests in light of your position and duties within the Company, the unique and valuable resources that S&P Global invests in your training; and (b) do not unfairly or unreasonably prohibit you from seeking and obtaining employment opportunities following employment with S&P Global and you intend that the post-employment restraints contained in this Agreement operate to the maximum extent.
2. Confidentiality. During the course of your employment with the Company, you will have access to non-public financial, proprietary, commercial, business and/or technical information relating to S&P Global (collectively, “Confidential Information”). In addition, you understand that the Company will receive from third parties confidential or proprietary information (“Third Party Information”) subject to a duty by the Company to maintain the confidentiality of such information. You agree to keep confidential, both during and at all times after your employment, all Confidential Information and Third Party Information, and that you will not disclose any such information (except as required by applicable law or for the proper performance of your duties and responsibilities for the Company and subject to Section 5 below). You further agree to abide by your confidentiality obligations, both during and at all times after your employment, which apply under applicable law, which you acknowledge agreeing to in the Company’s Code of Business Ethics (the “COBE”), and which you may agree to under other applicable policies or agreements that you may accept or acknowledge as an employee of the Company.
3. Intellectual Property. You agree to assign, and hereby assign, all intellectual property rights all ideas, inventions and designs conceived or reduced to practice by you while employed and which: (a) result from any work performed by you for the Company, (b) relate to the Company’s then-existing business or demonstrably anticipated research or development, or (c) were made with the Company’s equipment, supplies, facilities or trade secret information. All such ideas, inventions and designs shall be disclosed on a timely basis to the Company and title to such inventions, ideas and designs, including all intellectual property rights, shall be owned by S&P Global.
4. Conflicts of Interest. During your employment with S&P Global, you acknowledge and agree that you have a duty of loyalty to the Company under applicable law, and that you will avoid engaging in activities that create a conflict of interest, as set forth in the COBE. You therefore agree that, during your employment with S&P Global, you will not, directly or indirectly, engage in business activities that compete with the Company, solicit Company clients to move S&P Global business or business opportunities to an entity other than the Company, or solicit Company employees to leave S&P Global.
5. Whistleblower Protections; Defend Trade Secrets Act. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, including under Sections 2, 3 and 4, the COBE, or any other agreement with or policy of the Company, nothing in any of the Company’s policies or in any applicable employment agreement limits your ability to communicate directly with and provide information, including documents, not otherwise protected from disclosure by any applicable law or privilege to the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) or any other federal, provincial, state, local or other applicable governmental agency or commission (“Government Agency”) regarding possible legal violations, without disclosure to the Company. The Company may not retaliate against you for such communications and nothing herein requires you to waive any monetary award or other payment that you might become entitled to from the SEC or any other Government Agency. In addition, pursuant to the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016, you will not have criminal or civil liability under any federal or state trade secret law for the disclosure of a trade secret that (a) is made (i) in confidence to a federal, state, or local government official, either directly or indirectly, or to an attorney and (ii) solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law; or (b) is made in a complaint or other document filed in a lawsuit or other proceeding, if such filing is made under seal. In addition and without limiting the preceding sentence, if you file a lawsuit for retaliation by the Company for reporting a suspected violation of law, you may disclose the trade secret to your attorney and may use the trade secret information in the court proceeding, if you (x) file any document containing the trade secret under seal and (y) do not disclose the trade secret, except pursuant to court order.
6. Non-Competition. During the Restricted Period, as defined below, you agree not to, directly or indirectly, provide Restricted Services, as defined below, whether as an employee, worker, independent contractor, volunteer, director, owner, advisor, partner, or otherwise, to any entity that provides products or services that compete with any S&P Global products or services (such entity, a “Competitor”) within the Restricted Area, as defined below, except with prior written approval from the Company. Nothing herein shall prevent you from owning up to 2% interest in a publicly traded company which sells or engages in services that compete with S&P Global. In addition, nothing herein shall prevent you from acting as an officer, employee, agent, independent contractor or consultant to a Competitor which engages in multiple lines of business, one or more of which may compete with S&P Global products or services, if you have no direct or indirect involvement, participation, oversight or responsibility with respect to the unit, division, group, or other area of operations which cause such entity to be a Competitor.
a. The “Restricted Period” shall mean 12 months following the termination of your employment with the Company for any reason (the “Termination Date”).
b. “Restricted Services” shall mean services of any sort that relate to S&P Global products or services about which, during the 12 months prior to the Termination Date: (i) you or a person under your chain of command had responsibilities in the course of employment with the Company (including, without limitation, responsibilities relating to research and development, operations, provision of products or services, planning, marketing, sales, relationship management, compliance, risk, or finance), or (ii) you obtained confidential information.

7. Non-Solicitation of Clients. During the Restricted Period (as defined above), you agree not to, either on your own account or on behalf of any other person, firm, company, organization or entity, directly or indirectly interfere with the relationship between S&P Global and any of its clients or prospective clients in the Restricted Area (as defined above) by directly or indirectly soliciting any client or prospective client with respect to Restricted Services (as defined above). This restriction shall only apply to clients or prospective clients with which you had business-related or business-sponsored contact
in the 12 months preceding the Termination Date. For purposes of this Section 7, “prospective client” means any firm, company or person whose business or investment S&P Global has tried to solicit at any time during the 12 months before the Termination Date and to whom, during that period, you have made a presentation or a pitch, and/or with whose potential custom, investment or business you were personally concerned at any time during that period, and/or in respect of whom you had access to confidential information as of the Termination Date.

9. Enforcement and remedies. You acknowledge and agree that any breach or threatened breach of this Agreement is likely to cause S&P Global substantial and irreparable damage which is difficult to measure. Therefore, in the event of any such breach or threatened breach, you agree that the Company, in addition to such other remedies which may be available, shall have the right to obtain an injunction from a court restraining such a breach or threatened breach without posting a bond and the right to specific performance of the provisions of this Agreement, and you hereby waive the adequacy of a remedy at law as a defense to such relief.
a. Disclosure of this Agreement. You agree to notify any entity with whom you discuss the possibility of an employment relationship of the terms and existence of this Agreement.

This Agreement shall be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of, both parties and their respective successors and assigns, including any corporation with which, or into which, the Company may be merged or which may succeed to the Company’s assets or business; provided, however, that your obligations are personal and shall not be assigned by you. You expressly consent to be bound by the provisions of this Agreement for the benefit of the Company or any S&P Global entity to whose employ you may be transferred without the necessity that this Agreement be re-signed at the time of such transfer.
c. Severability. In case any provision of this Agreement shall be invalid, illegal, or otherwise unenforceable, the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall in no way be affected or impaired thereby.
d. Waivers. No delay or omission by the Company in exercising any right under this Agreement will operate as a waiver of that or any other right. A waiver or consent given by the Company on any one occasion is effective only in that instance and will not be construed as a bar to or waiver of any right on any other occasion.

which you have agreed, and (iii) all such obligations are reasonable for the protection of the Company’s and S&P Global’s legitimate business interests. This Agreement may not be modified, changed, or discharged in whole or in part, except by an agreement in writing signed by you and the Company.
