GRANTEE: TRITON INTERNATIONAL LIMITED: By: Title: Exhibit 10.3
Triton International Limited 2016 Equity Incentive Plan Exhibit to Notice of Restricted Share Unit Grant with Effective Date of [ ] Performance Period: [ ] to [ ] Performance-based compensation criteria for RSU grants The number of performance-based RSUs that will vest will be based on the attainment of the performance criteria set forth for Relative Total Shareholder Return and Adjusted Return on Equity for the Performance Period. Performance criteria will be weighted equally between the results attained for Relative Total Shareholder Return and Adjusted Return on Equity. 1. 50% - Relative Total Shareholder Return. Total Shareholder Return (“TSR”) is a rate of return reflecting stock price appreciation, plus reinvested dividends and distributions in additional shares of stock, taking into account stock splits or other similar events (as applicable), from the beginning of the Performance Period through the end of the Performance Period. The following peer companies will be used for calculating the Relative TSR component: [Peer group companies and weightings to be included.] The payout for the Relative TSR component will range from 50% to 150% of target based on the ranking of the Company’s TSR relative to the TSR of the applicable peer group established hereunder (the “Peer Group”) over the applicable Performance Period. The table below summarizes the Relative TSR component payout level as a percent of target based on the Company’s TSR rank. Performance Level* TSR Rank Attained % of Target Payout Threshold 25th percentile or below 50 Target 50th percentile 100 Maximum 75th percentile or above 150 *Results that fall between performance levels will be interpolated on a straight-line basis. In the event of a tie between the Company and a member of the Peer Group in TSR ranking for a Performance Period (including TSR rankings within 1/10th of one percent), the Company will be ranked above the applicable member of the Peer Group for the applicable Performance Period.
2. 50% - Adjusted Return on Equity (ROE). Adjusted Return on Equity (“ROE”) will be calculated as the average for each of the quarters in the Performance Period of (a) the Company’s reported annualized adjusted net income applicable to the Company’s common shareholders, divided by (b) the average of the Company’s beginning and ending common shareholders’ equity as reported under GAAP. The table below summarizes the ROE component payout level as a percent of target based on the Company’s ROE attained for the Performance Period. Performance Level* ROE Attained % of Target Payout Threshold [ ]% or less 50 Target [ ]% 100 Maximum [ ]% or more 150 *Results that fall between performance levels will be interpolated on a straight-line basis. Payout levels for the TSR and ROE components will be averaged to determine the final payout under the performance-based Restricted Shares. The Committee (as defined in the Plan) shall make all determinations necessary or appropriate to determine the number of performance-based Restricted Shares that may vest. In particular, the Committee may, in its sole discretion, make adjustments to the results or ROE target levels as it deems appropriate to take into account significant capital allocation actions during the Performance Period. Any adjustments or determinations by the Committee with respect to the performance-based Restricted Shares will be binding on Grantee and all interested parties. In the event the number of performance-based Restricted Shares under this exhibit is not a whole number, then the final number of performance-based Restricted Shares shall be rounded down to the nearest whole number.

Grantee may be required to report such accounts, assets or transactions to the tax or other authorities in Grantee's country of residence.

(o) AWARD SUBJECT TO COMPANY CLAWBACK POLICY. The RSUs shall be subject to clawback or recoupment pursuant to any compensation clawback or recoupment policy adopted (or that may be adopted) by the Board, as may be amended from time to time, or required by law during the term of Grantee’s employment or other service that is applicable to Grantee.

Nothing in the Plan or in this Award Agreement shall confer upon Grantee any right to continue in the employ of the Company, a parent or any subsidiary or shall interfere with or restrict in any way the right of the Company, parent or any subsidiary, which is hereby expressly reserved, to remove, terminate or discharge Grantee at any time for any reason whatsoever, with or without Cause and with or without advance notice.
Page 7 of 10 (q) SECTION 409A COMPLIANCE. This Section 5(q) may not apply if Grantee is not a U.S. taxpayer. The RSUs are intended to comply with Code Section 409A or an exemption thereunder, as determined by the Committee in its sole discretion, including the six month delay for payments of deferred compensation to “key employees” upon separation from service pursuant to Code Section 409A(a)(2)(B)(i), if applicable, and this Award Agreement shall be interpreted, administered and operated accordingly. To the extent that any provision in this Award Agreement is ambiguous as to its compliance with Code Sections 409A or 457A, the provision shall be interpreted in a manner so that no payment due to Grantee shall be deemed subject to an “additional tax” within the meaning of Code Section 409A(a)(1)(B). For purposes of Code Section 409A, each payment made under this Award Agreement shall be treated as a separate payment. In no event may Grantee, directly or indirectly, designate the calendar year of any payment under this Award Agreement. The Company does not guarantee the tax treatment of any payments under this Award Agreement, including under the Code, federal, state, local or foreign tax laws and regulations. (r) COMPLIANCE WITH LAW. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Plan or this Award Agreement, unless there is an exemption from any registration, qualification or other legal requirement applicable to the Shares, the Company shall not be required to deliver any Shares issuable upon settlement of the RSU prior to the completion of any registration or qualification of the Shares under any local, state, federal or foreign securities or exchange control law or under rulings or regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) or of any other governmental regulatory body, or prior to obtaining any approval or other clearance from any local, state, federal or foreign governmental agency, which registration, qualification or approval the Company shall, in its absolute discretion, deem necessary or advisable. Grantee understands that the Company is under no obligation to register or qualify the Shares with the SEC or any state or foreign securities commission or to seek approval or clearance from any governmental authority for the issuance or sale of the Shares. Further, Grantee agrees that the Company shall have unilateral authority to amend the Award Agreement without Grantee’s consent to the extent necessary to comply with securities or other laws applicable to issuance of Shares. (s) RATIFICATION OF ACTIONS. By accepting this RSU grant, Grantee and each person claiming under or through Grantee shall be conclusively deemed to have indicated Grantee's acceptance and ratification of, and consent to, any action taken under the Plan or this Award Agreement and the Notice, the Board, or the Committee.
Page 8 of 10 APPENDIX COUNTRY-SPECIFIC TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR GRANTEES OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Appendix have the meanings set forth in the Plan, the Notice of Restricted Share Unit Grant and the Award Agreement. Terms and Conditions This Appendix includes additional terms and conditions that govern the RSUs granted under the Plan if Grantee resides and/or works in one of the countries listed below. If Grantee is a citizen or resident (or is considered as such for local law purposes) of a country other than the country in which Grantee is currently residing and/or working, or if Grantee relocates to another country after the grant of the RSUs, the Company shall, in its sole discretion, determine to what extent the special terms and conditions contained herein are applicable.

The information is based on the securities, exchange control, and other laws in effect in the respective countries as of February 2021. Such laws are often complex and change frequently. As a result, the Company strongly recommends that Grantee not rely on the information in this Appendix as the only source of information relating to the consequences of his or her participation in the Plan because the information may be out of date at the time the RSU vest or Grantee sells Shares acquired under the Plan. In addition, the information contained herein is general in nature and may not apply to Grantee’s particular situation, and the Company is not in a position to assure Grantee of a particular result. Accordingly, Grantee is advised to seek appropriate professional advice as to how the relevant laws in Grantee's country of residence may apply to his or her situation. Finally, if Grantee is a citizen or resident (or is considered as such for local law purposes) of a country other than the country in which Grantee is currently residing and/or working, or if Grantee relocates to another country after the RSUs are granted, the notifications contained herein may no longer be applicable to Grantee.

(f) Data Retention. The Company will hold and use the Data only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage Grantee’s participation in the Plan, or as required to comply with legal or regulatory obligations, including under tax, exchange control, securities and labor laws.

Depending on where Grantee is based, such rights may include the right to (i) request access or copies of Data the Company processes, (ii) rectification of incorrect Data, (iii) deletion of Data, (iv) restrictions on processing of Data, (v) portability of Data, (vi) lodge complaints with competent authorities in Grantee’s jurisdiction, and/or (vii) receive a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of Data. To receive clarification regarding these rights or to exercise these rights, Grantee can contact his or her local human resources representative. (h) Contractual Requirement.
