The Service Agreement of May 4, 2000 between GPC Biotech AG, Fraunhoferstr. 20, 82152 Martinsried/Planegg (hereinafter Company) and Dr. Bernd Robert Seizinger, Gabriel-Max-Strasse 20, 81545 Munich (hereinafter Chief Executive Officer) is hereby amended with immediate effect pursuant to § 14, Para. 1.
The Addendum to Service Agreement of 9/10/2002 is hereby rescinded and replaced by the following § 15 of the Service Agreement:
Change of Control
|1.||In the event of a change of control (as defined below), all stock options, convertible bonds, phantom stock, and all other rights that carry an entitlement to acquire stock in the Company that have been issued to the Chief Executive Officer up to that time shall vest (accelerated vesting) as soon as one shareholder or group of shareholders has acquired the majority of the voting rights in the Company, and by no later than the time at which said acquisition has been reported to the Federal Office for Financial Services Supervision (BaFin). In the event of a merger with other companies, the aforementioned rights vest when the merger is recorded in the Commercial Register. Moreover, the Company shall not avail itself of any of the call facilities provided in the terms of the aforementioned stock options, convertible bonds, or phantom stocks for a period of at least 5 years following a change of control or until maturity.|
The other obligations of the Company toward the Chief Executive Officer arising from the present Agreement remain unaffected by such a takeover. The other terms of the stock options, convertible bonds, phantom stock, and all other rights that carry an entitlement to acquire stock in the Company remain in force unchanged.
