POSITION, DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES. Officer shall serve as an Executive Vice President of Employer, or of one of Employer's affiliated companies, as determined by Employer. Officer agrees to devote Officer's full-time best efforts to the business and affairs of Employer and its affiliates, to perform such executive and managerial duties as may be assigned to Officer, and to diligently promote the business, affairs and interests of Employer and its affiliates. If so requested by Employer, Officer agrees to serve concurrently, and without additional compensation, as an officer of both Employer and of one or more of Employer's affiliates, including its subsidiaries. 3. OUTSIDE AFFILIATIONS. During the term of this Agreement, Officer shall not compete, either directly or indirectly, with the business of Employer or its affiliates. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, Officer may make and manage personal business investments of Officer's choice and may serve in any capacity with any civic, educational or charitable organization, or with any governmental entity or trade association, provided that such activities do not interfere with or conflict with Officer's duties under this Agreement. Officer may not sit on the board of directors of any civic, educational or charitable, or business organization without first obtaining Employer's written consent. 4. COMPENSATION AND BENEFITS. In consideration of the performance of Officer's duties under this Agreement, Employer or its affiliates shall provide to Officer the compensation set forth below. All compensation paid to Officer by Employer or by any of its affiliates shall be aggregated in determining whether Officer has received the benefits described herein, but without prejudice to the allocation of costs among the entities to which Officer renders services under this Agreement. 4.1 BASE SALARY. Employer shall pay to Officer a base salary at the annual rate set forth in Appendix A. Officer's base salary shall be payable in equal installments no less frequently than every month. Employer may, in its sole discretion, increase Officer's base salary during the term of this Agreement, but Employer will not decrease Officer's base salary below the amount set forth in Appendix A. 4.2 INCENTIVE COMPENSATION. For each calendar year during the term of this Agreement, Employer shall pay to Officer an incentive compensation award in an amount to be determined pursuant to the then-applicable Annual Incentive Plan set forth in Appendix A.

Any incentive compensation award payable to Officer pursuant to the Annual Incentive Plan shall be paid no later than thirty (30) days after completion and publication of the applicable audited financial statements for the relevant calendar year. Except as otherwise provided herein, any incentive compensation award described in the Annual Incentive Plan, and Officer's base salary to the 1 <PAGE> extent that the incentive compensation award is a percentage of Officer's base salary, shall be prorated to the extent that Officer is employed for less than twelve (12) full months during the relevant calendar year. 4.3 STOCK OPTIONS AND RESTRICTED STOCK. During the term of this Agreement, Employer's public company affiliate, IndyMac Bancorp, Inc., or any successor public company ("Public Company"), may grant to Officer stock options and/or restricted stock for such number of shares of the Public Company's common stock as the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Public Company ("Compensation Committee") in its sole discretion determines, taking into account Officer's and the Public Company's performance and the competitive practices then prevailing regarding the granting of stock options. Subject to the foregoing, it is anticipated that the number of shares in respect of each annual stock option and/or restricted stock grant, if any, shall be comparable to the number of shares granted to officers of Employer at a level similar to Officer's level. The stock options and/or restricted stock herein described shall be granted at the same time as the Public Company grants stock options and/or restricted stock to its other officers. All stock options and restricted stock granted herein: (i) shall be granted pursuant to the Public Company's current stock option plan, or such other stock option plan or plans as may come into effect during the term of this Agreement, (ii) shall be priced and shall vest in accordance with the terms set by the Compensation Committee or as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, and (iii) shall be subject to such other reasonable terms and conditions as may be determined by the Compensation Committee and set forth in the agreement or other document evidencing the award. The effect of Officer's termination on the vesting of any stock options or restricted stock granted under this Agreement is described in Section 5.2. In the event that vested options held by Officer immediately after such termination represent shares of common stock in an amount equal to or greater than 500,000, then the maximum period for the exercise of any options shall be twelve (12) months. In the event that vested options held by Officer immediately after such termination represent shares of common stock in an amount equal to or greater than 100,000 but less than 500,000, then the maximum period for the exercise of any options shall be six (6) months. In the event that vested options held by Officer immediately after such termination represent shares of common stock in an amount less than 100,000, then the maximum period for their exercise shall be three (3) months. 4.4 ADDITIONAL BENEFITS. Officer shall be entitled to paid vacation, subject to Employer's vacation policies in effect from time to time. Officer shall also be entitled to participate in Employer's life and medical insurance plans, and in any stock purchase, executive compensation, pension, profit-sharing, deferred compensation, or other benefit or bonus plans that are offered to Employer's employees generally, or to officers of Employer at a level similar to Officer's level, subject to the terms and conditions, including any applicable eligibility requirements, of any such plan. This Agreement shall not affect or otherwise modify the provisions of any other compensation, retirement or other benefit program or plan of Employer. 4.5 RELOCATION EXPENSES. Employer shall, within 30 days following execution of this Agreement by all parties, make a one-time payment to Officer of $210,000 in respect of Officer's expenses, including forfeited compensation from Officer's prior employer, to be incurred in moving to California in order to accept employment with Employer. 2 <PAGE> 4.6 HOUSING ALLOWANCE. During the term of this Agreement, Employer will pay to Officer the monthly sum of $8,333.33 in order to defray Officer's housing expenses, including those described in Section 4.7. 4.7 RESIDENTIAL LEASE PURCHASE. Employer agrees that IndyMac Bancorp, Inc. will purchase a residence to be selected by Officer located within 20 miles of Employer's Pasadena home office, at a total cost not to exceed $2.75 million, and will lease the said residence to Officer on a monthly basis at fair rental value (anticipated to be approximately the same amount as the $8,333 housing allowance) for a period of five years. Prior to completion of the said purchase, Employer and Officer will enter into a standard form California Association of Realtors' Residential Lease, pursuant to which Officer will be responsible for paying all utilities and all repair and maintenance expenses associated with occupation of the residence and its grounds.

Officer may elect at any time during the lease term to purchase the residence at the lower of its purchase price to Employer or its fair market value minus improvements you have made, as determined by neutral appraisal.

Officer acknowledges and agrees that all such Confidential Information is a valuable asset of Employer, and if developed by Officer, is developed by Officer in the course of Officer's employment with Employer, and is the sole property of Employer. Officer agrees that Officer will not, for a period of three (3) years following the termination of his employment with Employer, divulge or otherwise disclose, directly or indirectly, any Confidential Information concerning the business or policies of Employer or any of its affiliates which Officer may have learned as a result of Officer's employment during the term of this Agreement or prior thereto as an employee, officer or director of or consultant to Employer or any of its affiliates, except to the 6 <PAGE> extent such use or disclosure is (i) necessary or appropriate to the performance of this Agreement and in furtherance of Employer's best interests, (ii) required by applicable law or in response to a lawful inquiry from a governmental or regulatory authority, (iii) lawfully obtainable from other sources, or (iv) authorized by Employer.

REIMBURSEMENT OF BUSINESS EXPENSES. During the term of this Agreement, Employer shall promptly reimburse to Officer all business expenses reasonably incurred by Officer in the performance of Officer's duties under this Agreement to the extent that such expenditures meet Internal Revenue Code requirements for deductibility by Employer for federal income tax purposes, or are otherwise in compliance with the rules and policies of Employer and are substantiated by Officer in accordance with applicable requirements of the Code and Treasury Regulations, and the applicable rules and policies of Employer. 8. INDEMNITY. To the extent permitted by applicable law and by Employer's articles, bylaws or other governing instruments, and subject to the restrictions imposed therein, Employer shall defend and indemnify Officer and hold Officer harmless for any acts or decisions made by Officer in good faith and while performing approved services for Employer or its affiliates, and shall advance to Officer any costs of defense, including attorneys' fees, incurred by Officer in defense of any third-party claims asserted against Officer in direct consequence of the discharge of Officer's duties under this Agreement. Employer shall use reasonable efforts to obtain coverage for Officer under liability insurance policies then in effect which cover the other officers or directors of Employer. 9. MISCELLANEOUS. 9.1 NOTICE OF TERMINATION AND TERMINATION DATE.

This Agreement may not be assigned without the prior written consent of the parties, other than in connection with a merger or sale of Employer or the sale of substantially all the assets of Employer, or similar transaction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Employer may, without Officer's consent, assign, whether by assignment agreement, merger, operation of law or otherwise, this Agreement to the Public 7 <PAGE> Company or to any successor or affiliate of Employer or the Public Company, subject to such assignee's express assumption of all obligations of Employer hereunder. The failure of any successor to or assignee of the Employer's business and/or assets in such transaction to expressly assume all obligations of Employer hereunder shall be deemed a termination for No Cause, pursuant to Section 5.1.5. 9.3 NOTICES. Any notices provided for in this Agreement shall be sent to Employer at its corporate headquarters, Attention: General Counsel, with a copy to the Human Resources department at the same address, or to such other address as Employer may from time to time in writing designate, and to Officer at such address as Officer may from time to time in writing designate (or Officer's business address of record in the absence of such designation).

Employer and Officer acknowledge that the services Officer is obligated to render under the provisions of this Agreement are of a special, unique, unusual, extraordinary and intellectual character, which gives this Agreement peculiar value to Employer. The loss of these services cannot be reasonably or adequately compensated in damages in an action at law and it would be difficult (if not impossible) to replace these services. By reason thereof, if either party violates any of the material provisions of this Agreement, the parties shall, in addition to any other rights and remedies available under this Agreement, or under applicable law or the Mutual Agreement to Arbitrate Claims, be entitled to seek injunctive relief, as permitted by law, from a court or tribunal of competent jurisdiction, restraining the other from committing or continuing any violation of this Agreement. The provisions hereof shall survive the expiration, suspension or termination, for any reason, of this Agreement. 9.8 SEVERABILITY. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect, 8 <PAGE> and if any provision is held invalid or unenforceable with respect to particular circumstances, it shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect in all other circumstances. 9.9 REGULATORY INTERVENTION.

Any rights of Officer that shall have vested under this Agreement shall not be affected by such action. 9.9.5 With regard to the provisions of this Section 9.9: (i) Employer agrees to use its best efforts to oppose any such notice of charges as to which there are reasonable defenses; (ii) In the event the notice of charges is dismissed or otherwise resolved in a manner that will permit Employer to resume its obligations to pay compensation hereunder, Employer will promptly make such payment hereunder; and (iii) During the period of suspension, the vested rights of the contracting parties shall not be affected except to the extent precluded by such notice. 9.9.6 Any payments made to Officer by Employer pursuant to this Agreement, or otherwise, are subject to and conditioned upon their compliance with 12 U.S.C. Section 1828(k) and any regulations promulgated thereunder. 9 <PAGE> EMPLOYER: By:___________________________________ Dated: _________________________ Michael W.
