Pursuant to the Restricted Stock Grant Notice (the “Grant Notice”) delivered to the Participant (as defined in the Grant Notice), and subject to the terms of this Restricted Stock Agreement (this “Restricted Stock Agreement”) and the 2016 US Foods Holding Corp.

(b) The term “Good Reason” as used in the Grant Notice or in this Restricted Stock Agreement shall, in the case of any Participant who is party to an agreement between the Participant and the Company that contains a definition of “Good Reason”, mean and refer to the definition set forth in such agreement, and in the case of any other Participant, “Good Reason” shall mean: (A) a material diminution in the Participant’s base salary or annual bonus opportunity; (B) any material diminution in the Participant’s authority, duties or responsibilities; or (C) the relocation of the Participant’s principal work location by more than fifty (50) miles; provided that none of these events shall constitute Good Reason unless the Company fails to cure such event within thirty (30) days after receipt from the Participant of written notice of the event which constitutes Good Reason; provided, further, that “Good Reason” shall cease to exist for an event on the sixtieth (60th) day following the later of its occurrence or the Participant’s knowledge thereof, unless the Participant has given the Company’s written notice thereof prior to such date. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, for purposes of the last proviso of the immediately foregoing sentence, a series of related events shall be deemed to have occurred on the date upon which the last event in such series of related events has occurred.
(c) Whenever the word “Participant” is used in any provision of this Restricted Stock Agreement under circumstances where the provision should logically be construed to apply to the executors, the administrators, or the person or persons to whom the shares of Restricted Stock may
be transferred by will or by the laws of descent and distribution, the word “Participant” shall be deemed to include such person or persons.
6. Non-Transferability. The shares of Restricted Stock are not transferable by the Participant except to Permitted Transferees in accordance with Section 14(b) of the Plan. Except as otherwise provided herein, no assignment or transfer of the shares of Restricted Stock, or of the rights represented thereby, whether voluntary or involuntary, by operation of law or otherwise, shall vest in the assignee or transferee any interest or right herein whatsoever, but immediately upon such assignment or transfer the shares of Restricted Stock shall terminate and become of no further effect.
7. Rights as Stockholder; Legend; Dividends. The provisions of Sections 9(b) and 9(e) of the Plan are incorporated herein by reference and made a part hereof; provided that any dividends paid with respect to the shares of Restricted Stock which have not, prior to the record date of the dividend, become vested shall be withheld by the Company without interest and shall be paid to the Participant only when, and if, such shares of Restricted Stock shall become vested pursuant to the Grant Notice and Section 2 of this Restricted Stock Agreement.
8. Tax Withholding. The provisions of Section 14(d)(i) of the Plan are incorporated herein by reference and made a part hereof. The Participant shall satisfy such Participant’s withholding liability referred to in Section 14(d)(i) of the Plan by having the Company withhold from the number of shares of Common Stock otherwise issuable or deliverable pursuant to the settlement of the Award a number of shares with a Fair Market Value equal to such withholding liability, provided that the number of such shares may not have a Fair Market Value greater than the minimum required statutory withholding liability unless the Participant elects a higher withholding rate and the Committee determines that such higher withholding rate will not result in adverse accounting consequences.
9. Notice. Every notice or other communication relating to this Restricted Stock Agreement between the Company and the Participant shall be in writing, and shall be mailed to or delivered to the party for whom it is intended at such address as may from time to time be designated by such party in a notice mailed or delivered to the other party as herein provided; provided that, unless and until some other address be so designated, all notices or communications by the Participant to the Company shall be mailed or delivered to the Company at its principal executive office, to the attention of the Company Secretary, and all notices or communications by the Company to the Participant may be given to the Participant personally or may be mailed to the Participant at the Participant’s last known address, as reflected in the Company’s records. Notwithstanding the above, all notices and communications between the Participant and any third-party plan administrator shall be mailed, delivered, transmitted or sent in accordance with the procedures established by such third-party plan administrator and communicated to the Participant from time to time.
10. No Right to Continued Service. This Restricted Stock Agreement does not confer upon the Participant any right to continue as an employee or service provider to the Company.
11. Binding Effect. This Restricted Stock Agreement shall be binding upon the heirs, executors, administrators and successors of the parties hereto.

Except as otherwise set forth in Section 13 of the Plan, any waiver, alteration, amendment or modification of any of the terms of this Restricted Stock Agreement shall be valid only if made in writing and signed by the parties hereto; provided, however, that any such waiver, alteration, amendment or modification is consented to on the Company’s behalf by the Committee. No waiver by either of the parties hereto of their rights hereunder shall be deemed to constitute a waiver with
respect to any subsequent occurrences or transactions hereunder unless such waiver specifically states that it is to be construed as a continuing waiver.
13. Governing Law. This Restricted Stock Agreement shall be construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to the principles of conflicts of law thereof.
