Sufficient remuneration for Overtime shall be deemed included in the Base Salary and the Executive shall therefore not be entitled to any (additional) remuneration for Overtime.
4. Exclusivity. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, the Executive shall devote his full business time, attention, and efforts to the performance of his duties under this Agreement and shall not engage in any other business or occupation during the Term of Employment, including, without limitation, any activity that (a) conflicts with the interests of any Group Company, (b) interferes with the proper and efficient performance of his duties for TPI or TPE or (c) interferes with the exercise of his judgment in any Group Companys best interests. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall preclude the Executive from: (i) serving, with the prior written consent of the President and Chief Executive Officer of TPI, as a member of the board of directors or advisory boards (or their equivalents in the case of a non-corporate entity) of non-competing businesses and charitable organizations; (ii) engaging in charitable activities and community affairs; (iii) speaking at meetings of business, charitable and civic organizations; or (iv) subject to the terms and conditions set forth in Section 9 hereof, managing his personal investments and affairs; provided, however, that the activities set out sub (i), (ii), (iii) and (iv) shall be limited by the Executive so as not to be in contradiction to any Group Companys policy and/or materially interfere, individually or in the aggregate, with the performance of his duties and responsibilities hereunder or create a potential business or fiduciary conflict.
5. Compensation and Benefits.
(a) Base Salary. For services rendered under this Agreement, the Executive shall be entitled to a salary at the rate of EUR 447,000 gross per annum for the prorated period starting the Effective Date and ending 31 March 2018, and EUR 464,100 gross per annum for the period commencing 1 April 2018, including Dutch statutory holiday allowance (such salary, or any increased salary granted to the Executive pursuant to this Section 5(a), the Base Salary), accruing on a pro rata tempore basis. The Executives Base Salary shall be payable in accordance with the payroll practices of TPE as the same shall exist from time to time. The Human Resources and Compensation Committee (the Compensation Committee) of the Board of Directors of TPI (the TPI Board), with input from the President and Chief Executive Officer of TPI, shall periodically consider and resolve whether to approve adjustments to the Executives Base Salary, according to the considerations specified in the shareholder-approved compensation policy of TPI in effect from time to time (the Compensation Policy) and subject to approval of the TPI Board.
(b) Annual Bonus. For each fiscal year that ends during the Term of Employment, the Executive shall be eligible to be considered for an annual bonus under the Companys annual cash bonus plan in accordance with the Compensation Policy (the Annual Bonus) and subject to the discretion of the Compensation Committee and the TPI Board. The Annual Bonus shall be paid to the Executive at the same time as annual bonuses are generally payable to other similarly situated senior executives of TPE, subject to the Executives continuous employment through the payment date, except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement. As from the Effective Date, the Annual Bonus target will be 100% of the Base Salary earned during the applicable year.
(c) Equity Awards. During the Term of Employment, the Executive shall be considered for equity-based compensation awards under TPIs 2015 Long-Term Equity-Based Incentive Plan or any successor equity compensation plan(s), at the sole discretion of the President and Chief Executive Officer of TPI, the Compensation Committee and the TPI Board. Any such awards shall be granted on such terms and conditions as may be determined by the Compensation Committee and the TPI Board.
(i) General. During the Term of Employment, the Executive shall be eligible to participate in such benefit plans and programs (other than on (1) bonus (2) equity and (3) pension, since those benefits will be covered exclusively by the provisions of this Agreement) as shall be provided to similarly situated executives of TPE, subject to the terms and conditions of such benefit plans and programs. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to limit TPEs ability to amend, suspend, or terminate any employee benefit plan or policy at any time without providing the Executive notice, and the right to do so is
expressly reserved. The terms and conditions of any TPE Employee Handbook, as that handbook may read from time to time, will apply to the subject Employment Contract, albeit that any provision of that handbook shall be considered superseded by the provisions explicitly stated or referred to herein. In case of discrepancies between the provisions of that handbook and provisions explicitly stated or referred to herein (including compensation policies), the latter shall prevail and substitute the handbook-provisions. Any TPI or TPE codes of conduct and policies (other than those on (1) bonus (2) equity and (3) pension) shall fully apply to the subject Employment Contract.
(ii) Pension. The Executive hereby explicitly waives any entitlement to participation in, and hence any entitlements to accruals under, each and every company-pension scheme as operated by TPE (including, without limitation, both the basic gross pension scheme arranging for certain pension accruals over the salary up to the cap set by Dutch wage tax legislation and the net pension scheme arranging for certain pension accruals over the salary in excess of that cap), with retro-active effect to the date of commencement of the Term of Employment. The Executive acknowledges and understands that as a consequence of not participating in the TPE company-pension schemes, the Executive and/or his spouse/partner (i.e. partner pension) and/or children (i.e. orphans pension) have no rights/claims under the current and/or future company-pension schemes of TPE against either TPE and/or the pension provider, which inter alia means that they will have no claims against TPE and/or the pension provider in case of (e.g.): reaching any retirement age, the death of Executive before or after reaching any retirement age, sickness/incapacity for work of the Executive, divorce etc. At TPEs request, the Executive will execute each and every instrument required by TPE, or the pension provider, to (re-) confirm such waiver of rights. The Executive warrants that his spouse/partner will execute a written statement confirming his/her consent to the Executives above-mentioned waiver and/or will execute a similar waiver(s) him/herself. In lieu of participation in any TPE-operated company-pension scheme (and provided that all of the above waivers and further instruments required by TPE in that respect will be executed by both the Executive and his spouse/partner), the Executive will be entitled to a monthly gross allowance as well as a monthly net allowance, each in the amount of the fictitious employers pension contributions (excluding premiums for any risk based insurances associated with those pension schemes) that would have been contributed by TPE to the respective company-operated pension schemes if the Executive had participated in the TPE company-pension schemes (as those were and will be applicable from time to time). That net allowance and the (net equivalent of the) gross allowance are intended for financing a private retirement scheme to be concluded and operated by the Executive and for financing any risk-based insurances for his own benefit. Neither of these allowances will be considered to qualify as salary/income for the purpose of calculating any variable pay or for calculating the Lump Sum, transitional fee (statutory severance), value of accrued but untaken holidays, VaBene or any other severance/damages/benefits to which the Executive may be entitled during or upon termination of the Employment. Parties acknowledge that Executive has received all such allowances in full in respect of the period between the date of commencement of the Term of Employment and the Execution Date and that neither Party has any claims for over- or underpayment against the other Party in respect of the entitlement to allowances over that period.
(iii) Vacation. During the Term of Employment, the Executive shall be entitled to the same number of vacation days, holidays, sick days and other paid time off benefits as are generally allowed to other similarly situated executives of TPE in accordance with TPEs policy as in effect from time to time.
(i) General. From the Effective Date until 31 July 2022, and if such term is not approved by the Committee and the Board then 31 May 2020 (the Relocation Term), the Executive will be entitled to (relocation) benefits in accordance with the terms of TPIs 2015 Long Term International Assignment Policy (the Relocation Policy), as shall be amended from time to time, and the terms of the Assignment Letter as executed by the Executive on 22 May 2017 (the Assignment Letter; Annex 2), to the extent relevant (i.e. to the extent covering similar benefits) and to the extent allowed by the applicable laws, in substitution of benefits/entitlements which apply pursuant to clause 5(d) of the subject Employment Contract.
(ii) Changes to Relocation Policy. The Executive acknowledges, agrees and understands that the Relocation Policy does not form part of this Agreement and the Company reserves the right to amend, suspend, or terminate the Relocation Policy at any time without providing the Executive notice, and the right to do so is expressly reserved. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) in the event of any conflict between the Relocation Policy and/or the Assignment Letter and this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall prevail, and (ii) the housing and education arrangements set forth in Executives Assignment Letter may not be revised during Relocation Term without receiving Executives consent.
6. Ordinary Business Expenses. During the Term of Employment, TPE shall reimburse the Executive for all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Executive in connection with the business of the Teva Group and in the performance of his duties under this Agreement, including expenses for travel, lodging and similar items, all in accordance with TPEs expense reimbursement policy, as the same may be modified from time to time. TPE shall reimburse all such proper expenses upon the Executives presentation to TPE of an itemized accounting of such expenses with reasonable supporting data.
7. Termination of Employment.
(a) General. The employment hereunder may be terminated by either party as per the last day of a calendar month, by giving written notice to the other party. The Executive shall in that respect observe a notice period of three (3) months and TPE shall in that respect observe a notice period of six (6) months.
(b) The date on which employment hereunder will formally terminate, shall be referred to in this Agreement as the Termination Date. Upon the termination of the Executives employment hereunder for any reason, except as may otherwise be requested by the relevant Group Company in writing, the Executive shall resign from any and all directorships, committee memberships or any other positions the Executive holds with any member of the Teva Group. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Executives employment with TPE will be terminated and be followed by employment between the Executive and any other member of the Teva Group, the Executive will not be entitled to receive any of the severance benefits under this Agreement and any severance or other termination benefits the Executive may thereafter become entitled to receive (pursuant to the subsequent employment with the other member of Teva Group) will be exclusively subject to the terms and conditions of any plan, program, policy or arrangement then in effect between the Executive and such other member of the Teva Group.
(c) Death or Disability. The Executives employment shall terminate automatically upon his death (Death). In the event the Executives employment is terminated due to his Death or for reasons of his Disability, the Executive or his estate or his beneficiaries, as the case may be, shall be entitled to (i) all accrued but unpaid Base Salary through the Termination Date; (ii) any unpaid or unreimbursed expenses incurred in accordance with TPE policy, including amounts due under Section 6 hereof to the extent incurred prior to the Termination Date, to the extent due under the applicable employment terms and/or mandatory applicable law; (iii) any other amounts required to be paid pursuant to applicable law, if any; and (iv) accrued and/or vested benefits under any plan or agreement covering the Executive which shall be governed by the terms of such plan or agreement (items (i) through (iv) collectively, the Accrued Obligations).

promptly repay to TPE any payments or benefits paid or provided to the Executive pursuant to subsection 7.e.(ii) , in as far as those payments/benefits exceed the benefits/payments to which Executive would be entitled in respect of the termination of the employment pursuant to (Dutch) statute or a court ruling which is no longer subject to appeal.

You will continue on the Annual Increment Policy of the home country based on your performance. It is Tevas intention to pay your compensation via your Home Companys payroll into your home country bank account in the home country currency. When required per local host regulations however, you may be paid a portion or all of your compensation in the host country. When your assignment ends, all assignment benefits and allowances will cease. During your assignment if applicable and according to your Home country managers sole discretion, your base salary will be reviewed and adjusted according to your home country policies.

Any incentive compensation eligibility (e.g., cash bonus, stock option, restricted stock units, etc.) is in accordance with Tevas incentive compensation plans and programs as they may be amended from time to time.

PENSION & SOCIAL SECURITY
To the extent possible, you remain on the home country pension/retirement plan and contribution schedule and your home social security scheme through regular payroll deductions. In cases where the home country pension/retirement plan cannot be maintained through the usual or voluntary contributions while on assignment, you may be able to participate in the host country scheme or Teva will arrange for you to participate in an alternative scheme. In some host locations, contributions to social tax schemes are mandatory and when that is the case, Teva will meet any mandatory host country employer and employee contributions on your behalf.
You will be under the Teva tax equalization policy during your assignment. The intent of this policy is that your ultimate tax liability will be similar to that which you have paid in the Home Country on your regular compensation had you not received assignment-related compensation or special tax considerations. Under this policy:
you will be responsible for a hypothetical tax liability on both income and social taxes, which will be calculated and deducted from each paycheck,
Teva will be responsible for an excess tax liability in the host country, and
it is your responsibility to pay income taxes in the home country (although covered by Teva)
The extent of this tax coverage by Teva is limited to your Teva compensation including salary, bonus, benefits and earnings related to equity that is vested while you are on assignment, but does not include earnings that you receive outside of your employment with Teva. The intent of the policy is that your ultimate tax liability will be similar to the amount you would have paid in the home country on your regular compensation had you not received assignment-related compensation or special tax considerations. Each year, a final tax equalization calculation will be prepared to settle your assignment tax obligations.
TAX PREPARATION AND SERVICES
It is a condition of employment that you comply with all personal tax responsibilities for each taxing authority in which a responsibility exists. The responsibility includes the proper filing of all tax returns. You are also responsible for notifying Teva of the tax payments due. The Company has retained the services of a Tax Consultant to prepare your home country and host country tax returns as required during the assignment period. Although you are fully responsible for the payment of all applicable income taxes and tax duties while on assignment, the Company will directly pay the consultant tax preparation and consulting fees on your behalf. Contact information of the Tax Consultant will be provided to you prior to the commencement of your assignment so that you may discuss your particular tax preparation needs in detail. Tax preparation assistance is limited to your filing and only extends to a spouse/partner when filing jointly. The Company will directly pay the consultant tax preparation and consulting fees on your behalf. Costs associated with personal financial planning will be your responsibility.

During this period, Employee is prohibited to directly or indirectly engage in any activities for any other company competing in any way with Teva Europe or an affiliated company of the Teva-group, also in case Teva Europe decides to put him on garden leave.
