Termination Protection Agreement - Juno Online Services Inc.
FORM OF TERMINATION PROTECTION AGREEMENT
THIS TERMINATION PROTECTION AGREEMENT is entered into between Juno Online Services, Inc. (the Company) and ___________ (the Executive).
Executive is a skilled and dedicated employee who has important management responsibilities and talents which benefit the Company. The Company believes that its best interests will be served if Executive is encouraged to remain with the Company. The Company has determined that Executives ability to perform Executives responsibilities and utilize Executives talents for the benefit of the Company, and the Companys ability to retain Executive as an employee, will be significantly enhanced if Executive is provided with fair and reasonable protection from the risks of a change in ownership or control of the Company. Accordingly, the Company and Executive agree as follows:
1. Defined Terms.
Unless otherwise indicated, capitalized terms used in this Agreement which are defined in Schedule A shall have the meanings set forth in Schedule A.
2. Effective Date; Term.
This Agreement shall be effective as of _______, 2001 (the Effective Date) and shall remain in effect until _______, 2004 (the Term); provided, however, that commencing with _______, 2002 and on each anniversary thereof (each an Extension Date), the Term shall be automatically extended for an additional one-year period, unless the Company or Executive provides the other party hereto written notice before the applicable Extension Date that the Term shall not be so extended. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Agreement shall, if in effect on the date of a Change of Control, remain in effect until the later of eighteen months following the Change of Control and the date that all of the Companys obligations under this Agreement have been satisfied in full.
3. Termination Protection Benefits.
If Executives employment with the Company is terminated upon or at any time within eighteen months following a Change of Control, by the Company without Cause or by Executive for Good Reason, Executive shall be entitled to the payments and benefits provided hereafter in this Section 3 and as set forth in this Agreement. If Executives employment with the Company is terminated prior to a Change of Control, by the Company by virtue of an act or omission by the Company or by Executive for Good Reason, either (i) at the request of a party (other than the Company or an affiliate of the Company) to a bona fide transaction which, if consummated, would result in a Change of Control, whether or not such Change of Control actually occurs, or (ii) in connection with or in anticipation of a Change of Control that subsequently occurs, Executive shall be entitled to the benefits provided hereafter in this Section 3 and as set forth in this Agreement, and Executives Termination Date shall be Executives last day of employment for purposes of clause (i) and shall be deemed to have occurred immediately following the Change of Control for purposes of clause (ii). If Executives employment with the Company is terminated for any reason other than by the Company with Cause or due to Executives death or Permanent Disability within the three month period immediately prior to a Change of Control that subsequently occurs, Executive shall be entitled to the benefits provided hereafter in this Section 3 and as set forth in this Agreement, and Executives Termination Date shall be deemed to have occurred immediately following the Change of Control. For purposes of this Agreement, the effective date of any such termination is referred to as the Termination Date. Notice of termination without Cause or for Good Reason shall be given in accordance with Section 14, and shall indicate the specific termination provision hereunder relied upon, the relevant facts and circumstances, and the Termination Date.
a. Severance Payments. Within ten business days after the Termination Date, the Company shall pay Executive a cash lump sum amount equal to:
(1) ___ times Executives Base Salary in effect on the Termination Date or the date of a Change of Control (if any), whichever is higher; provided that if any reduction of the Base Salary, or any failure to increase the Base Salary pursuant to an agreement between Executive and the Company, has occurred, then the Base Salary on either date shall be as in effect immediately prior to such reduction or after giving effect to such increase, as the case may be; and
(2) ___ times Executives Bonus in effect on the Termination Date or the date of a Change of Control (if any), whichever is higher; provided that if any reduction of the Bonus, or any failure to increase the Bonus pursuant to an agreement between Executive and the Company, has occurred, then the Bonus on either date shall be as in effect immediately prior to such reduction or after giving effect to such increase, as the case may be; and
(3) Executives Bonus (as determined in (2), above) multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which shall equal the number of days Executive was employed by the Company between the last day of the last period for which Executive received a year-end bonus and the Termination Date and the denominator of which shall equal 365 (or such other lower number of days in the applicable measuring period).
b. Treatment of Stock Options. Any stock options outstanding on the Termination Date (and any options into which such options are converted or options granted in substitution for such options) shall (1) become fully vested and exercisable (if not already vested and exercisable), and (2) remain exercisable for a period of one year following the Termination Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no option shall be exercisable after the specified maximum term of the option, as set forth in the document granting the option.
c. COBRA. If, following the Termination Date, Executive elects to continue group health benefits in accordance with the Consolidated Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA) (or other similar state coverage continuation law) and in accordance with the terms of the applicable plans, policies and arrangements of the Company, the Company shall pay the entire amount of all required premiums for a period of up to eighteen months or until Executive obtains comparable coverage under another health plan, whichever is earlier. Executive agrees to provide notice to the Company promptly if Executive becomes so covered under another health plan.
d. Payment of Earned But Unpaid Amounts. Within ten business days after the Termination Date (or such earlier date required by law), the Company shall pay Executive any as-yet unpaid portion of the Base Salary owed through the Termination Date, any Bonus earned but unpaid as of the Termination Date for any previously completed fiscal year (or other measuring period) of the Company, all compensation previously deferred by Executive but not yet paid, and reimbursement for any unreimbursed expenses properly incurred by Executive in accordance with Company policies prior to the Termination Date. Executive shall also receive such employee benefits, if any, to which Executive may be entitled from time to time under the employee benefit or fringe benefit plans, policies or programs of the Company, other than any Company severance policy (payments and benefits in this subsection (d), the Accrued Benefits).
e. Non-Compete Payment. Within ten business days after the Termination Date, the Company shall pay Executive a cash lump sum amount equal to ___ times the sum of Executives Base Salary and Bonus (as determined in Section 3(a)(1) and Section 3(a)(2) above). The payment of such amount is compensation for, and is subject to, Executives compliance with the covenants and restrictions set forth on the attached Schedule B.
Executive shall not be required to mitigate damages or the amount of any payment provided for under this Agreement by seeking other employment or otherwise, and (except as provided in Section 3(c) in the case where Executive obtains other group health benefits), compensation earned from such employment or otherwise shall not reduce the amounts otherwise payable under this Agreement.
5. Impact of Golden Parachute Tax Provisions.
a. In the event the Company determines, based upon the advice of the independent public accountants for the Company, that part or all of the consideration, compensation or benefits to be paid or provided to or for the benefit of Executive under this Agreement constitute parachute payments under Section 280G(b)(2) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the Code), then, if the aggregate present value of such parachute payments, whether evaluated alone or together with the aggregate present value of any consideration, compensation or benefits to be paid to Executive under any other plan, arrangement or agreement which constitute parachute payments (collectively the Parachute Amount) exceed 2.99 times the Executives base amount, as defined in Section 280G(b)(3) of the Code (the Executive Base Amount), the amounts constituting parachute payments which would otherwise be payable or provided to or for the benefit of Executive shall be reduced to the extent necessary so that the Parachute Amount is equal to 2.99 times the Executive Base Amount (the Reduced Amount); provided that such amounts shall not be so reduced if Executive determines, based upon the advice of an independent nationally recognized public accounting firm (which may, but need not be, the independent public accountants of the Company), that without such reduction Executive would be entitled to receive and retain, on a net after-tax basis (including, without limitation, any excise taxes payable under Section 4999 of the Code), an amount which is greater than the amount, on a net-after tax basis, that Executive would be entitled to retain upon Executives receipt of the Reduced Amount. All costs incurred by the Company or Executive in order to make the determinations described in this Section 5(a) shall be paid by the Company.
b. If the determination made pursuant to Section 5(a) results in a reduction of the amounts that would otherwise be paid or provided to or for the benefit of Executive, Executive may then elect, in Executives sole discretion, which and how much of any particular entitlement shall be eliminated or reduced and shall advise the Company in writing of Executives election within ten days of the determination of the reduction in payments. If no such election is made by Executive within such ten-day period, the Company may elect which and how much of any entitlement shall be eliminated or reduced and shall notify Executive promptly of such election. Within ten days following such determination and the elections hereunder, the Company shall pay or provide to or for the benefit of Executive such amounts as are then due to Executive under this Agreement and shall promptly pay or provide to or for the benefit of Executive in the future such amounts as become due to Executive under this Agreement.
c. As a result of the uncertainty in the application of Section 280G of the Code at the time of a determination hereunder, it is possible that payments will be made by the Company which should not have been made under Section 5(a) (Overpayment) or that additional payments which are not made by the Company pursuant to Section 5(a) should have been made (Underpayment). In the event that there is a final determination by the Internal Revenue Service which the parties do not contest, or a final determination by a court of competent jurisdiction, that an Overpayment has been made, any such Overpayment shall be treated for all purposes as a loan to Executive which Executive shall return to the Company together with interest at the applicable Federal rate provided for in Section 7872(f)(2) of the Code. In the event that there is (1) a final determination by the Internal Revenue Service which the parties do not contest, (2) a final determination by a court of competent jurisdiction, or (3) a change in the provisions of the Code, any regulations promulgated thereunder, or other administrative or judicial announcements, decisions, or interpretations pursuant to which an Underpayment reasonably arises under this Agreement, any such Underpayment shall be promptly paid or provided by the Company to or for the benefit of Executive, together with interest at the applicable Federal rate provided for in Section 7872(f)(2) of the Code.
6. Termination for Cause.
Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to prevent the Company from terminating Executives employment for Cause. If Executive is terminated for Cause, the Company shall have no obligation to make any payments under this Agreement, except for the Accrued Benefits.
7. Indemnification; Directors and Officers Liability Insurance.
Executive shall, after the Termination Date, retain all rights to indemnification under applicable law or under the Companys Certificate of Incorporation or By-Laws, as they may be amended or restated from time to time, but which in any event shall not be reduced in scope from such rights possessed by Executive on the date of a Change of Control, if any, or the Termination Date, if earlier (except as required by law). In addition, the Company shall maintain Directors and Officers liability insurance on behalf of Executive, at no less than the level in effect immediately prior to the Termination Date, for the six-year period following the Termination Date, and throughout the period of any applicable statute of limitations with respect to any services rendered by Executive for or on behalf of the Company.
Executives receipt of any payments under this Agreement is contingent upon (i) Executives execution of a release substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit 1, and (ii) the expiration of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act revocation period set forth in such release, without such release being revoked by Executive.
9. Not an Employment Agreement; Effect on Other Rights.
This Agreement is not, and nothing herein shall be deemed to create, a contract of employment between the Company and Executive. Except as expressly provided herein, this Agreement shall not interfere in any way with the right of the Company at any time to reduce Executives compensation or other benefits or terminate Executives employment, with or without Cause. Any rights that Executive shall have in that regard shall be as set forth in any applicable employment agreement between Executive and the Company. With respect to Executives employment agreement, if any, as in effect immediately prior to the Termination Date, nothing herein shall have any effect on Executives rights thereunder; provided, however, that in the event of Executives termination of employment in accordance with Section 3 hereof, this Agreement shall govern solely for the purpose of providing the terms of all payments and additional benefits to which Executive is entitled upon such termination and any payments or benefit provided thereunder shall reduce the corresponding type of payments or benefits hereunder.
10. Costs of Proceedings.
Each party shall pay its own costs and expenses in connection with any legal proceeding (including arbitration), relating to the interpretation or enforcement of any provision of this Agreement, except that the Company shall pay such costs and expenses, including attorneys fees and disbursements, of Executive if Executive prevails in such proceeding.
Except as otherwise provided herein, this Agreement shall be binding upon, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the Company and Executive and their respective heirs, legal representatives, successors and assigns. If the Company shall be merged into or consolidated with another entity, the provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the entity surviving such merger or resulting from such consolidation. The Company shall require any successor (whether direct or indirect, by purchase, merger, consolidation or otherwise) to all or substantially all of the business or assets of the Company, by agreement, expressly to assume and agree to perform this Agreement in the same manner and to the same extent that the Company would be required to perform it if no such succession had taken place. The provisions of this Section 11 shall continue to apply to each subsequent employer of Executive hereunder in the event of any subsequent merger, consolidation or transfer of assets of such subsequent employer.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Company may, to the extent required by law, withhold applicable federal, state and local income and other taxes from any payments due to Executive hereunder.
13. Applicable Law.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to conflicts of laws principles thereof.
For the purpose of this Agreement, any notice and all other communication provided for in this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given when delivered by hand or overnight courier or three days after it has been mailed by United States registered mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, addressed to the respective addresses set forth below, or to such other address as either party may have furnished to the other in writing in accordance herewith, except that notice of change of address shall be effective only upon receipt.
