(b)Performance Goals with respect to any Performance Period shall be established in writing by the Committee at such time when the outcome is substantially uncertain. At the same time as the Committee establishes the Performance Goals, the Committee may provide, in writing, that the determination as to whether the Performance Goals are attained will be made by including or excluding any of the following events that occur during or otherwise impact a Performance Period: (i) asset write-downs, (ii) litigation, claims, judgments or settlements, (iii) the effect of changes in tax laws, accounting principles, or

(d)After the end of the Performance Period, the Committee shall certify prior to payment of any Award, the attainment of the Performance Goal for the Performance Period. Notwithstanding attainment of the Performance Goal, the Committee shall have the discretion to reduce or eliminate the Award amount based upon the performance of the Company or the Participant or such other factors as the Committee determines in its discretion.

Payment under this Plan may be made in (i) cash, (ii) stock, restricted stock, other stock-based or stock denominated units issued under the Under Armour, Inc. Third Amended and Restated 2005 Omnibus Long-Term Incentive Plan, as amended from time to time, or any successor long-term incentive plan, (iii) any other form of consideration or (iv) any combination of (i)-(iii), as determined by the Committee. If an Award is settled in stock, restricted stock, other stock-based or stock denominated units pursuant to this Section 6(e), the value of such stock or units at the time of settlement shall not when combined with any cash paid to settle such Award exceed the annual maximum described in Section 6(c).
SECTION 7.NO RIGHT TO AWARDS: No employee shall have any claim to be granted any Award under the Plan, and there is no obligation for uniform treatment of employees under the Plan. The terms and conditions of Awards need not be the same with respect to different Participants.
SECTION 8.NO RIGHT TO EMPLOYMENT: The grant of an Award shall not be construed as giving a Participant the right to be retained in the employ of the Company. The Company may at any time terminate an employee’s employment free from any liability or any claim under the Plan, unless otherwise provided in the Plan.
SECTION 9.SEVERABILITY: If any provision of the Plan or any Award is, becomes, or is deemed to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction or would disqualify the Plan or any Award under any law deemed applicable by the Committee, such provision shall be construed or deemed amended to conform to applicable laws, or if it cannot be so construed or deemed amended without, in the determination of the Committee, materially altering the purpose or intent of the Plan or the Award, such provision shall be stricken as to such jurisdiction or Award, and the remainder of the Plan or such Award shall remain in full force and effect.
SECTION 10. NO TRUST OR FUND CREATED: Neither the Plan nor any Award shall create or be construed to create a trust or separate fund of any kind or a fiduciary relationship between the Company and a Participant. To the extent a Participant acquires a right to receive payments from the Company pursuant to an Award, such right shall be no greater than the right of any unsecured general creditor of the Company.
SECTION 11. NONASSIGNABILITY: Unless otherwise determined by the Committee, no Participant may sell, assign, transfer, discount, or pledge as collateral for a loan, or otherwise anticipate any right to payment under the Plan.
SECTION 12. FOREIGN JURISDICTIONS: The Committee may adopt, amend, or terminate arrangements, not inconsistent with the intent of the Plan, to make available tax or other benefits under the laws of any foreign jurisdiction to Participants subject to such laws or to conform with the laws and regulations of any such foreign jurisdiction.
SECTION 13. TERMINATION AND AMENDMENT: The Board may at any time and from time to time alter, amend, suspend, or terminate the Plan in whole or in part. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no termination or amendment of the Plan may, without the consent of the Participant to whom a payment under an Award has been determined for a completed Performance Period but not yet paid, adversely affect the rights of such Participant in such Award.
SECTION 14. APPLICABLE LAW: This Plan shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Maryland, without regard to its principles of conflict of laws.
SECTION 15. REPAYMENT OF AWARDS AS A RESULT OF CERTAIN IMPROPER CONDUCT: The Company shall seek to recover any Award paid to any Participant as required by the provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act or any other “clawback” provision required by law or the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange, or as may be adopted by Company from time to time.
