Pursuant to Section 4.1(a) of the CIC Severance Plan, the Company will provide Executive with a salary replacement benefit in the total amount of $1,211,262.80, less applicable taxes and withholdings (the “Severance Payment”), which amount (I) equals the sum of: (A) an amount equal to the product of (1) Executive’s Annual Bonus (as defined in the CIC Severance Plan) for the 2019 calendar year ($189,500), multiplied by (2) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days in the 2019 calendar year up to and including the Separation Date and the denominator of which is 365; (B) an amount equal to the product of (1) the sum of (x) Executive’s Base Salary (as defined in the CIC Severance Plan plus (y) Executive’s Annual Bonus, and (2) two, and (C) Executive’s unpaid current-year PTOA through the Separation Date (II) is subject to adjustment under Section 4.5 of the CIC Severance Plan.

Pursuant to Section 4.1(b)(1) of the CIC Severance Plan, Executive shall continue to be eligible to participate in the medical and dental coverage in effect with respect to Executive on the Separation Date for Executive and,

The Company shall be responsible for the payment of the employee portion of the required medical and dental contributions with respect to such coverage during the COBRA Continuation Coverage Period. Each of the Company's payments pursuant to the foregoing sentence shall be increased by an additional amount equal to the Federal, state and local income tax and FICA applicable to such payment, determined by applying the highest marginal Federal, state and local tax rates in effect at the payment date, with the intention that the Company will pay the full cost of the continued benefit coverage, including any applicable taxes. The Company reserves the right to determine the amount of any increased payment under this paragraph in its full discretion;
Pursuant to Section 4.1(b)(2) of the CIC Severance Plan, the Company will provide Executive with a medical and dental benefit continuation payment, less applicable taxes and withholdings (the “Benefit Continuation Payment”), with such Benefit Continuation Payment in an amount equal to 102% of the Company’s cost of providing Executive, his spouse and eligible dependents coverage under the Company’s medical and dental plans for the 6-month period beginning on the last day of the COBRA Continuation Coverage Period, plus an additional amount equal to the federal income tax applicable to such amount (determined by applying the highest marginal federal income tax rate in effect on the Separation Payment Date).

Pursuant to Section 4.1(d) of the CIC Severance Plan, the Company will pay or reimburse Executive for up to $25,000 in outplacement services, the scope and provider of which shall be selected by Executive (the “Outplacement Services”); provided, however, that in no event will the Company pay or reimburse Executive for any expenses relating to Outplacement Services that are incurred following the date that is 12 months following the Separation Date, and all such payments and reimbursements must be paid no later than the date that is 18 months following the Separation Date.
The payments and benefits set forth in this Section 2(a) are referred to herein collectively as the “Separation Benefits”.
(b) The Company acknowledges that Executive is entitled to the following benefits without regard to Executive’s execution of this Agreement:
Payment of Executive’s unpaid Base Salary for services performed through the Separation Date and payment in lieu of Executive’s current PTO balance as of the Separation Date, payable no later than 30 days following the Separation Date or such earlier date as required by applicable law;
Pursuant to Section 4.1(b)(x)7 of the Disclosure Schedules and the applicable Award Agreements (as defined in the Omnibus Plan) evidencing any LTI Awards granted in connection with an Ordinary Course LTI Award Grant Date (as defined in the Disclosure Schedules) (such LTI Awards, “Post-Signing LTI Awards”), each Post-Signing LTI Award granted before July 6, 2018 shall become immediately fully vested as of the Separation Date and be settled in accordance with the applicable Award Agreement; and
To the extent not paid or provided prior to the Separation Date, the Company shall timely pay or provide Executive with any other amounts or benefits required to be paid or provided or which Executive is eligible to receive under any employee benefit plan that is subject to ERISA (as defined below), including any rights to benefits under health plans and vested benefits under retirement plans or pension plans.
The payments and benefits set forth in this Section 2(b) are referred to herein collectively as the “Additional Benefits”.
3. Satisfaction of All Leaves and Payment Amounts; Prior Rights and Obligations. In entering into this Agreement, Executive expressly acknowledges and agrees that, except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, Executive has received all leaves (paid and unpaid) to which Executive has been entitled during Executive’s employment or engagement with the Company and any other Company Party, and Executive has received all wages, bonuses and other compensation, been provided all benefits and been afforded all rights and been paid all sums that Executive is owed or has been owed by the Company or any other Company Party, including all payments arising out of all incentive plans and any other bonus arrangements. For the avoidance of doubt, Executive shall not be entitled to receive (a) any payments or benefits pursuant to the Washington Gas Light Company Severance Pay Plan, (b) any payments under the Retention Bonus Letter Agreement, or (c) any payments under the LTI Awards granted after July 6, 2018. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Executive remains entitled to receive (to the extent still unpaid as of the date that Executive signs this Agreement) the Separation Benefits and the Additional Benefits in accordance with this Agreement, and Executive remains entitled to any benefits that may become due to him pursuant to Sections 4.5 and 4.6 of the CIC Severance Plan. Executive acknowledges and agrees that Executive had no right to the Separation Benefits (or any portion thereof) but for Executive’s entry into this Agreement and satisfaction of the terms herein.
4. General Release of Claims.
(a) As a condition of Executive’s receipt of the Separation Benefits (and any portion thereof), Executive hereby acquits, releases and forever discharges the Company, Holdings, Parent, their respective affiliates and each of the foregoing entities’ respective past and present owners, shareholders, partners, officers, managers, members, employees, directors, attorneys, affiliates, subsidiaries, parent companies, successors and assigns, heirs, executors, and administrators (hereinafter referred to collectively as the “Company Parties”) of and from any and all actions and causes of action, suits, debts, liabilities, claims, damages, and demands whatsoever in law or in equity, which Executive ever had, now has, or which Executive or Executive’s heirs, executors or administrators may have, by reason of anything whatsoever, arising from or relating in any way to Executive’s employment or the termination of Executive’s employment, or any other act or omission related to any matter occurring or existing on or prior to the time that Executive signs this Agreement, whether known or unknown, including any claims which have been asserted, could have been asserted or could be asserted now or in the future.
(b) Executive acknowledges and agrees that the release of claims described in Section 4(a) includes any claims under any federal, state or local laws prohibiting employment discrimination (including (each as may have been amended) Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (“ADEA”), the Americans With Disabilities Act, the Virginia Human Rights Act, the Virginians with Disabilities Act, and the D.C. Human Rights Act); the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”); any common law, contract, or tort claims now or hereafter recognized (including any claim for breach of contract (including any claim arising out of or relating to the CIC Severance Plan, except with respect to the payment of the Separation Benefits hereunder), wrongful discharge, emotional distress, wrongful termination, fraud or misrepresentation, or defamation); any public policy; and all claims for attorney’s fees and costs.
(c) Executive acknowledges and agrees that in no event shall the release of claims described in Section 4(a) include any claim that first arises after Executive signs this Agreement, or any claim to vested benefits under an employee benefit plan that is subject to ERISA (including any rights to benefits under health plans and vested benefits under retirement plans or pension plans). Further, nothing in this Agreement prevents Executive from filing any non-legally waivable claim (including a challenge to the validity of the release of claims under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, as amended), and nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to prohibit Executive from engaging in any activity protected by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, 18 U.S.C. § 1514A, or subject to Section 4(d) below, from filing any charge or claim with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (the “EEOC”) or any other governmental agency (including without limitation the Virginia Human Rights Commission) or participating in any investigation or proceeding conducted by the EEOC or other governmental agency or cooperating with such agency; however, Executive acknowledges and agrees that Executive is waiving any and all rights to recover any monetary or personal relief as a result of such EEOC or other governmental
agency proceeding or subsequent legal actions. Nothing herein waives Executive’s right to receive an award for information provided to a governmental agency.
(d) Upon the receipt of reasonable notice from the Company (including outside counsel), Executive agrees that, following the Separation Date, Executive will respond and provide information with regard to matters about which Executive has knowledge as a result of Executive’s employment with the Company, and Executive will provide reasonable assistance to the Company and the other Company Parties in defense of any claims that may be made against the Company or the other Company Parties and assist the Company and the other Company Parties in the prosecution of any claims that may be made by the Company or the other Company Parties, to the extent that such claims may relate to the period of Executive’s employment with the Company (collectively, the “Claims”). Executive agrees to promptly inform the Company if Executive becomes aware of any lawsuits involving Claims that may be filed or threatened against the Company or the other Company Parties. Executive also agrees to promptly inform the Company (to the extent that Executive is legally permitted to do so) if Executive is asked to assist in any investigation of the Company or and the other Company Parties (or their actions) or another party attempts to obtain information or documents from Executive (other than in connection with any litigation or other proceeding in which Executive is a party-in-opposition) with respect to matters Executive believes in good faith to relate to any investigation of the Company or the other Company Parties, in each case, regardless of whether a lawsuit or other proceeding has then been filed against the Company or the other Company Parties with respect to such investigation, and shall not do so unless legally required. During the pendency of any litigation or other proceeding involving Claims, Executive shall not communicate with anyone (other than Executive’s attorneys and tax and/or financial advisors) with respect to the facts or subject matter of any pending or potential litigation or regulatory or administrative proceeding involving the Company or any of the other Company Parties without giving prior written notice to the Company or the Company’s counsel. Executive acknowledges and agrees that if any person, organization or other entity files, charges, claims, sues or causes or permits to be filed, charged or claimed, any civil action, suit or legal proceeding for personal relief (including any action for damages, injunctive, declaratory, monetary or other relief) against the Company or any of the other Company Parties involving any claim that Executive has released herein, Executive will not accept any personal relief in any such action. Upon presentation of appropriate documentation, the Company shall pay or reimburse Executive for all reasonable out-of-pocket travel, duplicating or telephonic expenses incurred by Executive in complying with this Section 4(d).
5. Executive’s ADEA Waiver Acknowledgements. Executive expressly acknowledges and agrees that, among the matters waived in this Agreement are any and all rights or claims arising under the ADEA. Pursuant to the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act (“OWBPA”), which contains special provisions and requirements affecting the release of ADEA claims, Executive also expressly acknowledges and agrees that:
(a) In return for this Agreement, he will receive consideration, i.e., something of value, beyond that which he was already entitled to receive before entering into this Agreement;
(b) Executive has had sufficient time (and at least 21 days from the receipt of this Agreement) to consider this Agreement before the execution and delivery to the Company;
(c) If Executive knowingly and voluntarily chooses to do so, he may accept the terms of the Agreement before the twenty-one (21) day consideration period has expired;
(d) Executive has been advised, and hereby is advised in writing, to consult an attorney regarding this Agreement before signing;
(e) Executive acknowledges and agrees that Executive is competent to enter into this Agreement and knowingly and voluntarily does so, understanding it as fully resolving any differences and disputes between Executive and the Company and the other Company Parties;
(f) Executive has carefully read this Agreement; and
(g) Any changes made to this Agreement in accordance with the provisions set forth herein, whether material or immaterial, will not restart the running of the twenty-one (21) day period;
6. Revocation Right. Notwithstanding the initial effectiveness of this Agreement, Executive has the right to revoke the delivery (and therefore the effectiveness) of this Agreement within the seven-day period beginning on the day Executive signs this Agreement (such seven-day period being referred to herein as the “Release Revocation Period”). To be effective, such revocation must be in writing signed by Executive and must be received by the Company, care of: General Counsel, Washington Gas Light Company, 1000 Maine Avenue, SW, Suite 700, Washington, D.C. 20024, on or before the last day of the Release Revocation Period. If an effective revocation is delivered in the foregoing manner and timeframe, then the Separation Benefits shall not be paid or provided to Executive pursuant to Section 2(a) of this Agreement, the release of claims set forth in Section 4 shall be of no force or effect and the remainder of this Agreement shall be in full force and effect. This Agreement shall not become effective until the eighth (8th) day following its execution by Executive.
7. Affirmation of Restrictive Covenants; Permitted Disclosures. Executive acknowledges and agrees that he is subject to the restrictions set forth in Article 6 of the CIC Severance Plan, including the Company’s Policy of Post-Employment Restrictions attached as Exhibit 2 thereto (the “Post-Employment Restrictions”), which include certain confidentiality, non-solicitation and non-competition restrictive covenants. Provided that Executive satisfies the requirements to receive the Separation Benefits set forth in Section 2(a), then, effective as of the Separation Date, Section III.B.2. of the Company’s Policy of Post-Employment Restrictions
attached as Exhibit 2 to the CIC Severance Plan as it applies to Executive shall be amended and restated so that it reads, in its entirety, as follows:
2. Solicitation of Customers. The solicitation of any customer or prospective customer of WGL Holdings, Inc. and/or Washington Gas Light Company with whom or which the executive had material contact regarding actual or prospective business with WGL Holdings, Inc. and/or Washington Gas Light Company during the preceding year, or for whom or which the executive had direct or indirect responsibility, or about whom or which the executive obtained Confidential Information, in each case as an employee or representative of WGL Holdings, Inc. and/or Washington Gas Light Company, which solicitation is with the intent of soliciting business competitive to that of WGL Holdings, Inc. and/or Washington Gas Light Company or diverting business from WGL Holdings, Inc. and/or Washington Gas Light Company.
Executive expressly acknowledges and agrees that the Post-Employment Restrictions (as amended by this Agreement) are enforceable in all respects and promises to abide by their terms. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Agreement or the Post-Employment Restrictions shall prohibit or restrict Executive from lawfully (a) initiating communications directly with, cooperating with, providing information to, causing information to be provided to, or otherwise assisting in an investigation by, any governmental authority regarding a possible violation of any law; (b) responding to any inquiry or legal process directed to Executive from any such governmental authority; (c) testifying, participating or otherwise assisting in an action or proceeding by any such governmental authority relating to a possible violation of law; or (d) making any other disclosures that are protected under the whistleblower provisions of any applicable law. Additionally, pursuant to the federal Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016, Executive shall not be held criminally or civilly liable under any federal or state trade secret law for the disclosure of a trade secret that: (i) is made (A) in confidence to a federal, state or local government official, either directly or indirectly, or to an attorney and (B) solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law; (ii) is made to Executive’s attorney in relation to a lawsuit for retaliation against Executive for reporting a suspected violation of law; or (iii) is made in a complaint or other document filed in a lawsuit or other proceeding, if such filing is made under seal. Nothing in this Agreement requires Executive to obtain prior authorization from the Company before engaging in any conduct described in this paragraph, or to notify the Company that Executive has engaged in any such conduct.
