(the “Employer")


Vignesh Rajah

(the “Employee”)

(collectively the “Parties")

With effect from March 10, 2021, the Employment Contract entered into between the Parties (with previous amendments, the “Employment Contract”) shall be amended as follows:


Additional Clause (take-over protection)

The following shall be added as a new Clause 16 to the Contract:

“16. Termination Upon Change in Control.

16.1 Definitions

Company” means Y-mAbs Therapeutics, Inc., a Delaware corporation, or any successor.

Change in Control” shall mean any of the following events:


An acquisition (other than directly from the Company) of any voting securities of the Company (the “Voting Securities”) other than in a “Non-Control Acquisition” (as defined below) by any “Person” (as the term “person” is used for purposes of Section 13(d) or 14(d) of the US Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, (the “1934 Act”)) which results in such Person first attaining “Beneficial Ownership” (within the meaning of Rule 13d-3 promulgated under the 1934 Act) of fifty-one percent (51%) or more of the combined voting power of the Company’s then outstanding Voting Securities. For purposes of the foregoing, a “Non-Control Acquisition” shall mean an acquisition by (i) an employee benefit plan (or a trust forming a part thereof) maintained by (x) the Company or (y) any corporation or other Person of which a majority of its voting power or its equity securities or equity interest is owned directly or indirectly by the Company (a “Subsidiary”), or (ii) the Company or any Subsidiary.



The individuals who, as of January 1, 2020, were members of the Board (the “Incumbent Board”) cease for any reason to constitute at least 66 2/3% of the Board; provided, however, that if the election, or a nomination for election by the Company’s shareholders, of any new director was approved by a vote of at least 66 2/3% of the Incumbent Board, such new director shall be considered as a member of the Incumbent Board; provided further, however, that no individual shall be considered a member of the Incumbent Board if such individual initially assumed office as a result of either an actual or threatened “Election Contest” (as described in Rule 14a-11 promulgated under the 1934 Act) or other actual or threatened solicitation of the proxies or consents by or on behalf of a Person other than the Board (a “Proxy Contest”) including by reason of any agreement intended to avoid or settle any Election Contest or Proxy Contest; or


The consummation of a transaction approved by the Company’s shareholders and involving: (1) a merger, consolidation or reorganization in which the Company is a constituent corporation, unless (i) the shareholders of the Company, immediately before such merger, consolidation or reorganization, own, directly or indirectly immediately following such merger, consolidation or reorganization, at least sixty-six and two-thirds percent (66-2/3%) of the combined voting power of the outstanding voting securities of the corporation resulting from such merger, consolidation or reorganization (the “Surviving Corporation”) in substantially the same proportion as their ownership of the voting securities immediately before such merger, consolidation or reorganization, (ii) the individuals who were members of the Incumbent Board immediately prior to the execution of the agreement providing for such merger, consolidation or reorganization constitute at least 66 2/3% of the members of the board of directors of the Surviving Corporation, and (iii) no Person other than (w) the Company,

(x) any Subsidiary, (y) any employee benefit plan (or any trust forming a part thereof) maintained by the Company, the Surviving Corporation or any Subsidiary, or (z) any Person who, immediately prior to such merger, consolidation or reorganization had Beneficial Ownership of fifty-one percent (51%) or more of the then outstanding Voting Securities, has Beneficial Ownership of fifty-one percent (51%) or more of the combined voting power of the Surviving Corporation’s then outstanding voting securities (a transaction described in clauses

(i) and (ii) shall herein be referred to as a “Non-Control Transaction”); (2) a complete liquidation or dissolution of the Company; or (3) an agreement for the sale or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company to any Person (other than a transfer to a Subsidiary).


Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Change in Control shall not be deemed to occur solely because the level of Beneficial Ownership held by any Person (the “Subject Person”) exceeds the designated percentage threshold of the outstanding Voting Securities as a result of a repurchase or other acquisition of Voting Securities by the Company reducing the number of shares outstanding, provided that if a Change in Control would occur (but for the operation of this sentence) as a result of the acquisition of Voting Securities by the Company, and after such share acquisition, the Subject Person becomes the Beneficial Owner of any additional Voting Securities which, assuming the repurchase or


other acquisition had not occurred, increases the percentage of the then outstanding Voting Securities Beneficially Owned by the Subject Person over the designated percentage threshold, then a Change in Control shall occur.


Right to terminate.

The Employee shall have the right to terminate this Employment Contract, for any reason, on one (1) month’s written notice to the end of a month to the Employer in the event of a Change in Control; provided, however, that such termination right must be exercised by the Employee within twelve (12) months following such Change in Control.



In the event this Employment Contract is terminated (a) by the Employee pursuant to Clause 16.2 for any reason, or (b) by the Employer within twelve (12) months following a Change in Control unless such termination is caused by a material breach by the Employee of the terms of employment, then (for both (a) and (b)) the Employer shall provide the Employee the following benefits:


Amount: In addition to all compensation for services rendered by Employee to the Employer up to the effective date of termination and any other claims for compensation that may exist, the Employer shall pay to Employee, no later than the effective date of termination, a single lump-sum payment in an amount equal to (i) six

(6) times Employee’s highest monthly base compensation paid hereunder during the preceding twelve (12) month period, plus (ii) the Employee’s annual bonus received by the Employee during the preceding year (for 2020 the bonus amount shall be determined as the unprorated amount that the Employee would have received had he been employed for the entire 2020).


Acceleration of Options: All of the Employee’s outstanding options and/or equity awards shall become fully and immediately vested to the extent not already so provided under the terms of such options and equity awards.”



2.1.Apart from the changes specifically set forth above, all terms and conditions of the Employment Contract (as previously amended) remain in full force and effect.

2.2.This addendum to the Employment Contract shall be signed by both Parties, and the original shall be kept by the Employer. The Employee shall receive a duplicate copy hereof.
