This Transition Agreement (including the Exhibits attached hereto, this “Transition Agreement”) is made and entered into on November 25, 2020 (the “Effective Date”), by and between Scott E. Wahlstrom (“Executive”) and Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies Corporation (the “Company”).
WHEREAS, Executive was previously employed by the Company as Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, and Executive and the Company are parties to an Employment Continuation Agreement, dated as of June 30, 2009 (the “Employment Agreement”);
WHEREAS, effective as of October 12, 2020, Executive resigned as Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, and has continued his employment as Strategic Advisor to the Chief Executive Officer as of October 12, 2020;
WHEREAS, both Executive and the Company desire and intend to amicably sever the employment relationship between them;
WHEREAS, both Executive and the Company have read and understand the terms of this Transition Agreement, and both Executive and the Company have been provided with reasonable opportunities to consult with their respective legal counsel prior to entering into this Transition Agreement; and
WHEREAS, capitalized terms used and not defined herein shall have the meaning provided in the Employment Agreement.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises and covenants set forth in this Transition Agreement, the Company and Executive agree as follows:
i.Date of Termination. Executive’s employment with the Company will terminate effective as of December 31, 2020 (the “Date of Termination”). Executive acknowledges that, effective as of October 12, 2020, Executive resigned from his position as Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer and has since been employed as Strategic Advisor to the Chief Executive Officer. While employed, Executive will continue to report directly to the Chief Executive Officer of the Company. Executive shall resign from his position as Strategic Advisor to the Chief Executive Officer as of the Date of Termination. On or prior to the Date of Termination, Executive shall also resign from all other positions Executive holds as an officer, director or employee of the Company or any of its subsidiaries and affiliates. Executive will promptly execute such documents and take such actions as may be necessary or reasonably requested by the Company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates to effectuate or memorialize the resignation of such positions.
ii.Severance Benefits. In consideration for Executive’s (i) execution of this Transition Agreement, (ii) continuing employment with the Company through the Date of Termination, (iii) execution, on the Date of Termination, of the release of claims attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Release”), (iv) non-revocation of the Release, and (v) compliance with the post-employment restrictions set forth in Section 11 of the Employment Agreement, Executive will receive the payments and benefits as specified on the attached Exhibit B, subject to applicable tax withholding (collectively, the “Severance Benefits”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Executive dies prior to the
Date of Termination, the Severance Benefits shall vest and be paid pursuant to Exhibit B to Executive’s surviving spouse or, if Executive has no surviving spouse, Executive’s estate, at the same time and in such amounts as otherwise would have been received by Executive; provided Executive’s surviving spouse or the executor of Executive’s estate, as applicable, executes, and does not revoke, the Release (with such changes thereto as the Company deems necessary to reflect that Executive’s surviving spouse or the executor of Executive’s estate, as applicable, and not Executive, is executing such Release). The Severance Benefits are in full satisfaction of all payment obligations of the Company and its subsidiaries under the Employment Agreement, the Company 2011 Stock Incentive Plan (as amended or amended and restated from time to time, the “2011 Stock Plan”), the Company 2000 Stock Incentive Plan, as amended (the “2000 Stock Plan” and together with the 2011 Stock Plan, the “Equity Plans”) the Company Long Term Incentive Plan and other compensation arrangements of the Company and its subsidiaries.
iii.Transition Period. From the Effective Date through the Date of Termination or, if earlier, the date of Executive’s death or voluntary resignation (the “Transition Period”), Executive shall continue to be paid his current base salary of $427,100 (“Base Salary”) and receive his current employee benefits, including Executive’s eligibility to earn an annual bonus for 2020 in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Company’s annual bonus program and with a target bonus opportunity of 60% of Base Salary. During the Transition Period, Executive may only be terminated by the Company for Cause. For purposes of this Transition Agreement, “Cause” is defined as (i) Executive’s willful and repeated failure to perform his duties (other than any such failure resulting from incapacity due to physical or mental illness); (ii) Executive’s willful engagement in dishonesty, illegal conduct, or gross misconduct, which is, in each case, materially injurious to the Company; (iii) Executive’s embezzlement, misappropriation, or fraud, whether or not related to Executive’s employment with the Company; (iv) Executive’s conviction of or plea of guilty or nolo contendere to a crime that constitutes a felony (or state law equivalent) or a crime that constitutes a misdemeanor involving moral turpitude, if such felony or other crime is work-related, materially impairs Executive’s ability to perform services for the Company or results in material reputational or financial harm to the Company; or (v) any material failure by Executive to comply with the Company’s written polices or rules. No act or failure to act on the part of Executive shall be considered “willful” unless it is done, or omitted to be done, by Executive in bad faith or without reasonable belief that Executive’s action or omission was in the best interests of the Company. For purposes of this Transition Agreement, termination of Executive’s employment will not be deemed to be for Cause unless and until the Company delivers to Executive a written notice of the conduct that the Company finds constitutes Cause. Except for Cause that by its nature cannot reasonably be expected to be cured, Executive will have 10 business days from the delivery of written notice by the Company within which to cure the Cause.
iv.Non-Disparagement. Executive agrees that he shall not talk about or otherwise communicate to any third parties in a malicious, disparaging or defamatory manner regarding the Company or its past or present employees, officers, directors, managers, board members, agents, affiliates, parent entities, subsidiaries, administrators, successors, and assigns (the “Company Parties”), or any aspect of his employment with the Company or its subsidiaries. The Company agrees that it shall use its reasonable best efforts to
cause its officers and directors to refrain from talking about or otherwise communicating to any third parties in a malicious, disparaging or defamatory manner regarding Executive. Further, Executive shall not make or authorize to be made any written or oral statement that may disparage or damage the reputation of the Company or the Company Parties, and the Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause its officers and directors to not make or authorize to be made any written or oral statement that may disparage or damage Executive’s reputation.
v.Post-Employment Restrictive Covenants. Executive reaffirms that Executive’s post-employment restrictions set forth in Section 11 of the Employment Agreement expressly survive termination of Executive’s employment, will remain in full force and effect notwithstanding the termination of Executive’s employment, and are hereby incorporated by reference into this Transition Agreement. Executive acknowledges that breach of any post-employment restrictive covenant in the Employment Agreement will constitute a breach of this Transition Agreement. Further, Executive acknowledges that the Company’s obligation to pay the Severance Benefits shall cease in the event Executive breaches any of his obligations hereunder or as set forth in Section 11 of the Employment Agreement. Executive recognizes the legitimate business interests of the Company in protecting its goodwill or other business interests and represents that the post-employment restrictions outlined in the Employment Agreement do not unduly restrict or curtail his legitimate efforts to earn a livelihood in light of the substantial consideration Executive will receive. The covenants in Section 2.4 of the 2011 Stock Plan and Section 5 of the 2000 Stock Plan and any non-competition, non-solicitation (employee or customer) or non-interference covenants in any award agreement under the Equity Plans will continue to apply to Executive after the Date of Termination.
vi.Indemnification and Director & Officer Insurance Obligations. The Company reaffirms its obligations set forth in Section 5(g) of the Employment Agreement.
vii.Company Property. Executive affirms that he has, or will have within a reasonable time after the Date of Termination, returned to the Company in reasonable working order all Company Property, as described more fully below. “Company Property” includes equipment, supplies and documents of the Company or any subsidiary of the Company. Such documents may include but are not limited to customer lists, financial statements, cost data, price lists, invoices, forms, passwords, electronic files and media, mailing lists, contracts, reports, manuals, personnel files, correspondence, business cards, drawings, employee lists or directories, lists of vendors, photographs, maps, surveys, and the like, including copies, notes or compilations made therefrom, whether such documents are embodied on “hard copies” or contained on computer disk or any other medium. Executive further agrees that he will not retain any copies or duplicates of any such Company Property.
viii.Future Cooperation. Executive agrees that, for a period of 24 months following the Date of Termination, he will fully cooperate with the Company in effecting an orderly transition of his duties and in ensuring that the business of the Company is conducted in a professional, positive and competent manner including, without limitation, by making himself available to answer questions posed by the Company. Executive agrees that he shall, without any additional compensation, respond to reasonable requests for information from the Company regarding matters that may arise in the Company’s business. Executive further agrees to fully and completely cooperate with the Company,
its advisors and its legal counsel with respect to any litigation that is pending against the Company and any claim or action that may be filed against the Company in the future. Such cooperation shall include making himself available at reasonable times and places for interviews, reviewing documents, testifying in a deposition or a legal or administrative proceeding, and providing advice to the Company in preparing defenses to any pending or potential future claims against the Company. The Company agrees to pay/reimburse Executive for any pre-approved travel expenses incurred as a result of his cooperation with the Company.
ix.Acknowledgements. Nothing in this Transition Agreement prevents Executive from providing, without prior notice to the Company, information to governmental authorities regarding possible legal violations or otherwise testifying or participating in any investigation or proceeding by any governmental authorities regarding possible legal violations. Furthermore, no Company policy or individual agreement between the Company and Executive shall prevent Executive from providing information to government authorities regarding possible legal violations, participating in investigations, testifying in proceedings regarding the Company’s past or future conduct, engaging in any future activities protected under the whistleblower statutes administered by any government agency (e.g., the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, National Labor Relations Board, Securities and Exchange Commission, etc.) or receiving a monetary award from a government-administered whistleblower award program for providing information directly to a government agency. The Company nonetheless asserts and does not waive its attorney-client privilege over any information appropriately protected by such privilege.
x.Nature of Agreement. This Transition Agreement contains the entire agreement between the Company (including its subsidiaries) and Executive regarding Executive’s departure from the Company, except that all post-employment covenants of Executive contained in the Employment Agreement, the Equity Plans and in any award agreements under the Equity Plans will remain in full force and effect. This Transition Agreement may not be altered, modified, waived or amended except by a written document signed by a duly authorized representative of the Company and Executive. The headings in this document are for reference only and shall not in any way affect the meaning or interpretation of this Transition Agreement.
xi.Choice of Law. This Transition Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflicting provision or rule (whether of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the laws of any jurisdiction other than the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to be applied. In furtherance of the foregoing, the internal law of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania will control the interpretation and construction of this Transition Agreement, even if under such jurisdiction’s choice of law or conflict of law analysis, the substantive law of some other jurisdiction would ordinarily apply. Further, to the extent that Executive or the Company is required to initiate legal action to enforce any right or obligation under this Transition Agreement, Executive and the Company agree that any such litigation shall be filed and determined by the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania or the Court of Common Pleas for Allegheny County; and both Executive and the Company consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of such courts.

Executive further understands that nothing contained herein is intended to interfere with or discourage Executive’s good faith disclosure to any governmental entity regarding possible legal violations or otherwise testifying or participating in any investigation or proceeding by any governmental authorities regarding possible legal violations, and nothing contained herein waives or releases Executive’s right to receive money for disclosing such information to a government agency. Executive further understands that Executive will not be subject to retaliation by the Company for a disclosure made pursuant to this paragraph.

This Release will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflicting provision or rule (whether of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the laws of any jurisdiction other than the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to be
applied. In furtherance of the foregoing, the internal law of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania will control the interpretation and construction of this Release, even if under such jurisdiction’s choice of law or conflict of law analysis, the substantive law of some other jurisdiction would ordinarily apply. Further, to the extent that Executive or the Company is required to initiate legal action to enforce any right or obligation under this Release, Executive and the Company agree that any such litigation shall be filed and determined by the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania or the Court of Common Pleas for Allegheny County; and both Executive and the Company consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of such courts.
8. Severability. The provisions of this Release are severable, and if any part or portion of it is found to be unenforceable, the other paragraphs shall remain fully valid and enforceable.
