Once appointed, such Committee shall continue to serve in its designated capacity until otherwise directed by the Board. From time to time the Board may increase the size of the Committee and appoint additional members thereof, remove members (with or without cause) and appoint new members in substitution therefor, fill vacancies, however caused, and remove all members of the Committee and thereafter directly administer the Plan, all to the extent permitted by Rule 16b-3 with respect to a plan intended to qualify thereunder as a discretionary plan.

(iii) Administration With Respect to Consultants and Other Employees. With respect to grants of Options to Employees or Consultants who are neither directors nor officers of the Company, the Plan shall be administered by (A) the Board or (B) a Committee designated by the Board, which Committee shall be constituted in such a manner as to satisfy the legal requirements relating to the administration of incentive stock option plans, if any, of California corporate and securities laws and of the Code (the "Applicable Laws"). Once appointed, such Committee shall continue to serve in its designated capacity until otherwise directed by the Board. From time to time -3- <PAGE> 4 the Board may increase the size of the Committee and appoint additional members thereof, remove members (with or without cause) and appoint new members in substitution therefor, fill vacancies, however caused, and remove all members of the Committee and thereafter directly administer the Plan, all to the extent permitted by the Applicable Laws. (b) Powers of the Administrator. Subject to the provisions of the Plan and in the case of a Committee, the specific duties delegated by the Board to such Committee, the Administrator shall have the authority, in its discretion: (i) to determine the Fair Market Value of the Common Stock, in accordance with Section 2(k) of the Plan; (ii) to select the officers, Consultants and Employees to whom Options may from time to time be granted hereunder; (iii) to determine whether and to what extent Options are granted hereunder; (iv) to determine the number of Shares to be covered by each such award granted hereunder; (v) to approve forms of agreement for use under the Plan; (vi) to determine the terms and conditions, not inconsistent with the terms of the Plan, of any Option granted hereunder (including, but not limited to, the price per Share and any restriction or limitation, based in each case on such factors as the Administrator shall determine, in its sole discretion); (vii) to determine whether and under what circumstances an Option may be settled in cash under subsection 9(f) instead of Common Stock; (viii) to determine whether, to what extent and under what circumstances Common Stock and other amounts payable with respect to an award under this Plan shall be deferred either automatically or at the election of the participant (including providing for and determining the amount, if any, of any deemed earnings on any deferred amount during any deferral period); (ix) to reduce the exercise price of any Option to the then current Fair Market Value if the Fair Market Value of the Common Stock covered by such Option shall have declined since the date the Option was granted; (x) to modify or amend each Option (subject to Section 14 of the Plan); and -4- <PAGE> 5 (xi) to make all other determinations deemed necessary or advisable for administering the Plan. (c) Effect of Committee's Decision. All decisions, determinations and interpretations of the Administrator shall be final and binding on all Optionees and any other holders of any Options. 5. Eligibility. (a) Nonstatutory Stock Options may be granted to Employees and Consultants. Incentive Stock Options may be granted only to Employees. An Employee or Consultant who has been granted an Option may, if he or she is otherwise eligible, be granted additional Option. (b) Each Option shall be designated in the Notice of Grant as either an Incentive Stock Option or a Nonstatutory Stock Option. However, notwithstanding such designations, to the extent that the aggregate Fair Market Value of the Shares with respect to which Options designated as Incentive Stock Options are exercisable for the first time by any Optionee during any calendar year (under all plans of the Company or any Parent or Subsidiary) exceeds $100,000, such excess Options shall be treated as Nonstatutory Stock Options. (c) For purposes of Section 5(b), Incentive Stock Options shall be taken into account in the order in which they were granted, and the Fair Market Value of the Shares shall be determined as of the time the Option with respect to such Shares is granted. (d) The Plan shall not confer upon any Optionee any right with respect to continuation of employment or consulting relationship with the Company, nor shall it interfere in any way with his right or the Company's right to terminate his employment or consulting relationship at any time, with or without cause. 6. Term of Plan. The Plan shall become effective upon the earlier to occur of its adoption by the Board of Directors or its approval by the shareholders of the Company as described in Section 19 of the Plan. It shall continue in effect for a term of ten (10) years unless sooner terminated under Section 15 of the Plan. 7. Term of Option. The term of each Option shall be the term stated in the Notice of Grant; provided, however, that in the case of an Incentive Stock Option, the term shall be no more than ten (10) years from the date of grant thereof or such shorter term as may be provided in the Option Agreement. However, in the case of an Option granted to an Optionee who, at the time the Option is granted, owns stock representing more than ten percent (10%) of the voting power of all classes of stock of the Company or any Parent or Subsidiary, the term of the Option shall be five (5) years from the date of grant thereof or such shorter term as may be provided in the Option Agreement. -5- <PAGE> 6 8. Option Exercise Price and Consideration. (a) The Administrator, in its discretion, may grant Options to eligible participants and shall determine whether such Options shall be Incentive Stock Options or Nonstatutory Stock Options. Each Option shall be evidenced by a Notice of Grant which shall expressly identify such Option as an Incentive Stock Option or as a Nonstatutory Stock Option, and be in such form and contain such provisions as the Administrator shall from time to time deem appropriate. Without limiting the foregoing, the Administrator may, at any time, or from time to time, authorize the Company, with the consent of the respective recipients, to issue Options in exchange for the surrender and cancellation of any or all outstanding Options. (b) The per Share exercise price for the Shares to be issued pursuant to exercise of an Option shall be such price as is determined by the Board, but shall be subject to the following: (i) In the case of an Incentive Stock Option (A) granted to an Employee who, at the time of the grant of such Incentive Stock Option, owns stock representing more than ten percent (10%) of the voting power of all classes of stock of the Company or any Parent or Subsidiary, the per Share exercise price shall be no less than 110% of the Fair Market Value per Share on the date of grant. (B) granted to any Employee, the per Share exercise price shall be no less than 100% of the Fair Market Value per Share on the date of grant. (ii) In the case of a Nonstatutory Stock Option, the per Share exercise price shall be determined by the Administrator. In the case of a Nonstatutory Stock Option intended to qualify as "performance-based compensation" within the meaning of Section 162(m) of the Code, the per Share exercise price shall be no less than 100% of the Fair Market Value per Share on the date of grant. (c) The consideration to be paid for the Shares to be issued upon exercise of an Option, including the method of payment, shall be determined by the Administrator (and, in the case of an Incentive Stock Option, shall be determined at the time of grant) and may consist entirely of (1) cash, (2) check, (3) other Shares which (x) in the case of Shares acquired upon exercise of an Option, have been owned by the Optionee for more than six months on the date of surrender and (y) have a Fair Market Value on the date of surrender equal to the aggregate exercise price of the Shares as to which said Option shall be exercised, (4) authorization from the Company to retain from the total number of Shares as to which the Option is exercised that number of Shares having a Fair Market Value on the date of exercise equal to the exercise price for the total number of Shares as to -6- <PAGE> 7 which the Option is exercised, (5) delivery of a properly executed exercise notice together with irrevocable instructions to a broker to promptly deliver to the Company the amount of sale or loan proceeds required to pay the exercise price or (6) any combination of the foregoing methods of payment. In making its determination as to the type of consideration to accept, the Board shall consider if acceptance of such consideration may be reasonably expected to benefit the Company. 9. Exercise of Option. (a) Procedure for Exercise; Rights as a Shareholder. Any Option granted hereunder shall be exercisable at such times and under such conditions as determined by the Board, including performance criteria with respect to the Company or the Optionee, and as shall be permissible under the terms of the Plan. An Option may not be exercised for a fraction of a Share. An Option shall be deemed to be exercised when written notice of such exercise has been given to the Company in accordance with the terms of the Option by the person entitled to exercise the Option and full payment for the Shares with respect to which the Option is exercised has been received by the Company. Full payment may, as authorized by the Board, consist of any consideration and method of payment allowable under Section 8(b) of the Plan. Until the issuance (as evidenced by the appropriate entry on the books of the Company or of a duly authorized transfer agent of the Company) of the stock certificate evidencing such Shares, no right to vote or receive dividends or any other rights as a shareholder shall exist with respect to the Optioned Stock, notwithstanding the exercise of the Option. The Company shall issue (or cause to be issued) such stock certificate promptly upon exercise of the Option. No adjustment will be made for a dividend or other right for which the record date is prior to the date the stock certificate is issued, except as provided in Section 11 of the Plan. Exercise of an Option in any manner shall result in a decrease in the number of Shares which thereafter may be available, both for purposes of the Plan and for sale under the Option, by the number of Shares as to which the Option is exercised. (b) Termination of Employment. In the event of termination of an Optionee's consulting relationship or Continuous Status as an Employee with the Company (as the case may be), such Optionee may, but only within thirty (30) days (or such other period of time as is determined by the Board, with such determination in the case of an Incentive Stock Option being made at the time of grant of the Option and not exceeding three (3) months) after the date of such termination (but in no event later than the expiration date of the term of such Option as set forth in the Option Agreement), exercise his Option to the extent that Optionee was entitled to exercise it at the date of such termination. To the extent that Optionee was not entitled to exercise the Option at the date of such termination, or if Optionee does not exercise such Option to the extent so entitled within the time specified, the Option shall terminate. -7- <PAGE> 8 (c) Disability of Optionee. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 9(b) above, in the event of termination of an Optionee's Consulting relationship or Continuous Status as an Employee as a result of his disability (as defined in the Code), Optionee may, but only within six (6) months from the date of such termination (but in no event later than the expiration date of the term of such Option as set forth in the Option Agreement), exercise the Option to the extent otherwise entitled to exercise it at the date of such termination. To the extent that Optionee was not entitled to exercise the Option at the date of termination, or if Optionee does not exercise such Option to the extent so entitled within the time specified, the Option shall terminate. (d) Death of Optionee. (i) If Optionee dies during the term of the Option and is at the time of his death an Employee or Consultant of the Company who shall have been in Continuous Status as an Employee or Consultant since the date of grant of the Option, then the Option may be exercised, at any time within one (1) year following the date of death (or such other period of time as is determined by the Board), by the Optionee's estate or by a person who acquired the right to exercise the Option by bequest or inheritance, but only to the extent of the right to exercise that would have accrued had the Optionee continued living and remained in Continuous Status as an Employee or Consultant three (3) months after the date of death (or such other period of time as is determined by the Board); or (ii) If Optionee dies within thirty (30) days (or such other period of time not exceeding three (3) months as is determined by the Board) after the termination of Continuous Status as an Employee, then the Option may be exercised, at any time within one (1) year following the date of death (or such other period of time as is determined by the Board), by the Optionee's estate or by a person who acquired the right to exercise the Option by bequest or inheritance, but only to the extent of the right to exercise that had accrued at the date of termination. (e) Rule 16b-3. Options granted to persons subject to Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act must comply with Rule 16b-3 and shall contain such additional conditions or restrictions as may be required thereunder to qualify for the maximum exemption from Section 16 of the Exchange Act with respect to Plan transactions. (f) Buyout Provisions. The Administrator may at any time offer to buy out for a payment in cash or Shares an Option previously granted, based on such terms and conditions as the Administrator shall establish and communicate to the Optionee at the time that such offer is made. 10. Non-Transferability of Options. The Option may not be sold, pledged, assigned, hypothecated, transferred, or disposed of in any manner other than by will or by the laws of descent or distribution and may be exercised during the lifetime of the Optionee only by the Optionee. 11. Stock Withholding to Satisfy Withholding Tax Obligations. At the discretion of the Administrator, Optionees may satisfy withholding obligations as provided in this paragraph. When an Optionee incurs tax liability in connection with an Option, which tax liability is subject to tax -8- <PAGE> 9 withholding under applicable tax laws, and the Optionee is obligated to pay the Company an amount required to be withheld under applicable tax laws, the Optionee may satisfy the withholding tax obligation by electing to have the Company withhold from the Shares to be issued upon exercise of the Option, if any, that number of Shares having a Fair Market Value equal to the amount required to be withheld. The Fair Market Value of the Shares to be withheld shall be determined on the date that the amount of tax to be withheld is to be determined. 12. Adjustments Upon Changes in Capitalization or Merger. Subject to any required action by the shareholders of the Company, the number of Shares covered by each outstanding Option, and the number of Shares which have been authorized for issuance under the Plan but as to which no Options have yet been granted or which have been returned to the Plan upon cancellation or expiration of an Option, as well as the price per Share covered by each such outstanding Option, shall be proportionately adjusted for any increase or decrease in the number of issued shares of Common Stock resulting from a stock split, reverse stock split, stock dividend, combination or reclassification of the Common Stock, or any other increase or decrease in the number of issued shares of Common Stock effected without receipt of consideration by the Company; provided however, that conversion of any convertible securities of the Company shall not be deemed to have been "effected without receipt of consideration." Such adjustment shall be made by the Board, whose determination in that respect shall be final, binding and conclusive. Except as expressly provided herein, no issuance by the Company of shares of stock of any class, or securities convertible into shares of stock of any class, shall affect, and no adjustment by reason thereof shall be made with respect to, the number or price of Shares subject to an Option. -9- <PAGE> 10 In the event of the proposed dissolution or liquidation of the Company, the Board shall notify the Optionee at least fifteen (15) days prior to such proposed action. To the extent it has not been previously exercised, the Option will terminate immediately prior to the consummation of such proposed action. In the event of a merger of the Company with or into another corporation, or the sale of substantially all of the assets of the company, each outstanding Option shall be assumed or an equivalent option substituted by the successor corporation or a Parent or Subsidiary of the successor corporation. In the event that the successor corporation refuses to assume or substitute for the Option, the Optionee shall fully vest in and have the right to exercise the Option as to all of the Optioned Stock, including Shares as to which it would not otherwise be vested or exercisable. If an Option becomes fully vested and exercisable in lieu of assumption or substitution in the event of a merger or sale of assets, the Administration shall notify the Optionee that the Option shall be fully exercisable for a period of fifteen (15) days from the date of such notice, and the Option shall terminate upon the expiration of such period. For the purposes of this paragraph, the Option shall be considered assumed if following the merger, the Option confers the right to purchase or receive, for each Share of Optioned Stock subject to the Option immediately prior to the merger, the consideration (whether stock cash or other securities or property) received in the merger by holders of Common Stock for each Share held on the effective date of the transaction (and if the holders are offered a choice of consideration, the type of consideration chosen by the holders of a majority of the outstanding Shares). If such consideration received in the merger is not solely common stock of the successor corporation or its Parent, the Administrator may, with the consent of the successor corporation, provide for the consideration to be received upon the exercise of the Option, for each Share of Optioned Stock subject to the Option to be solely common stock of the successor corporation or its Parent equal in fair market value to the per share consideration received by holders of Common Stock in the merger. 13. Time of Granting Options. The date of grant of an Option shall, for all purposes, be the date on which the Administrator makes the determination granting such Option, or such other date as is determined by the Board. Notice of the determination shall be given to each Employee or Consultant to whom an Option is so granted within a reasonable time after the date of such grant. 14. Amendment and Termination of the Plan. (a) Amendment and Termination. The Board may at any time amend, alter, suspend or discontinue the Plan, but no amendment, alteration, suspension or discontinuation shall be made which would impair the rights of any Optionee under any grant theretofore made without his consent. In addition, to the extent necessary and desirable to comply with Rule 16b-3 under the Exchange Act or with Section 422 of the Code or any other Applicable Laws, the Company shall obtain shareholder approval of any Plan amendment in such a manner and to such a degree as required. (b) Effect of Amendment or Termination. Any such amendment or termination of the Plan shall not affect Options already granted and such Options shall remain in full force and effect as if this Plan had not been amended or terminated, unless mutually agreed otherwise between the Optionee and the Board, which agreement must be in writing and signed by the Optionee and the Company. 15. Conditions Upon Issuance of Shares. Shares shall not be issued pursuant to the exercise of an Option unless the exercise of such Option and the issuance and delivery of such Shares pursuant thereto shall comply with all relevant provisions of law, including, without limitation, the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, the Exchange Act, the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, state securities laws and the requirements of any stock exchange upon which the Shares may then be listed, and shall be further subject to the approval of counsel for the Company with respect to such compliance. As a condition to the exercise of an Option, the Company may require the person exercising such Option to represent and warrant at the time of any such exercise that the Shares are being purchased only for investment and without any present intention to sell or distribute such Shares if, in the opinion of counsel for the Company, such a representation is required by any of the aforementioned relevant provisions of law. -10- <PAGE> 11 16. Reservation of Shares. The Company, during the term of this Plan, will at all times reserve and keep available such number of Shares as shall be sufficient to satisfy the requirements of the Plan. The inability of the Company to obtain authority from any regulatory body having jurisdiction, which authority is deemed by the Company's counsel to be necessary to the lawful issuance and sale of any Shares hereunder, shall relieve the Company of any liability in respect of the failure to issue or sell such Shares as to which such requisite authority shall not have been obtained. 17. Agreements. Options shall be evidenced by written agreements in such form as the Board shall approve from time to time. 18. Shareholder Approval. Continuance of the Plan shall be subject to approval by the shareholders of the Company within twelve (12) months before or after the date the Plan is adopted. Such shareholder approval shall be obtained in the degree and manner required under applicable state and federal law. -11- <PAGE> 12 KEY PERSONNEL PLAN GRANT OF STOCK PURCHASE RIGHT [Name of Key Personnel] [Address] You have been granted the right to purchase Common Stock of the Company, subject to the terms and conditions of the Company's Key Personnel Plan (the "Plan") and the Stock Purchase Agreement, as follows: <TABLE> <S> <C> Grant Number ____________________ Date of Grant: ____________________ Vesting Commencement Date: ____________________ Price Per Share $___________________ Total Number of Shares Granted ____________________ Total Purchase Price $___________________ Expiration Date of Stock Purchase Rights ____________________ </TABLE> Vesting Schedule: ______ percent (____%) of the Shares purchased pursuant to this Grant shall vest ______ months after the Vesting Commencement Date, and _________ (___%) of the Shares shall vest at the end of each twelve-month period thereafter. ____ years after the Vesting Commencement Date all of the Shares purchased under the Plan shall be vested, provided you shall continue to be designated Key Personnel of the Company. Key Personnel Plan: This Stock Purchase Right is subject in all respects to the terms and conditions of the Plan. All capitalized terms herein shall have the meanings defined in the Plan, except as the context herein suggests otherwise. In addition, your right to purchase shares pursuant to this Stock Purchase Right is subject to execution and delivery of a Stock Purchase Agreement in the form attached hereto and compliance with all Applicable Laws. Expiration of Stock Purchase Right: All rights granted hereby shall expire on __________, 199__. <PAGE> 13 8x8, INC. STOCK PURCHASE AGREEMENT THIS AGREEMENT is made as of June __, 1996 between 8x8, Inc. (formerly Integrated Information Technologies, Inc.), a California corporation (the "Company"), and _____________________ (the "Purchaser"). WHEREAS in order to give the Purchaser an opportunity to acquire an equity interest in the Company as an incentive for the Purchaser to participate in the affairs of the Company, the Company is willing to sell to the Purchaser and the Purchaser desires to purchase shares of Common Stock according to the terms and conditions contained in the Company's Key Personnel Plan (the "Plan") and herein. THEREFORE, the parties agree as follows: 1. Sale of Stock. The Company hereby agrees to sell to the Purchaser and the Purchaser hereby agrees to purchase an aggregate of _________ shares of the Company's Common Stock (the "Shares"), at the price of $0.50 per share for an aggregate purchase price of $___________. 2. Payment of Purchase Price. (a) The purchase price for the Shares may be paid by delivery to the Company at the time of execution of this Agreement of cash, check, duly executed promissory note in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the "Note"), or any combination thereof. (b) With respect to the Note, the parties agree to the following: (1) The Note shall become payable in full upon the earlier of (1) five (5) years from the date of the Note, (B) thirty (30) days following termination of Transferor's employment with or services to the Company as an employee, member of the board of directors or consultant except for death or disability, and (C) one (1) year following any such termination as a result of death or disability. (2) The Purchaser shall deliver to an escrow holder designated by the Company (the "Escrow Holder") all certificates representing the Shares together with two executed blank stock assignments, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B, for use in transferring all or a portion of said Shares to the Company as required under this Section 2(b) or under any other provision of this Agreement, including Section 3, and shall enter into a set of Joint Escrow Instructions in the form attached as Exhibit C. -1- <PAGE> 14 (3) As security for the payment of the Note and any renewal, extension or modification thereof, the Purchaser hereby grants to the Company, pursuant to the Security Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit D, a security interest in and pledges with and delivers to the Company the certificate or certificates representing the Shares. (4) In the event of any foreclosure of the security interest, the Escrow Holder shall deliver the certificates representing the Shares to the Company in accordance with the Joint Escrow Instructions, and the Company may sell the Shares at a private sale or may itself repurchase any or all of the Shares. The parties acknowledge that, prior to the establishment of a public market for the Shares of the Company, the securities laws applicable to the sale of the Shares make a public sale of the Shares commercially unreasonable. The parties agree that the repurchasing of said Shares by the Company, or by any person to whom the Company may have assigned its rights hereunder, is commercially reasonable if made at not less than the book value per Share as recorded on the Company's books at the end of the last fiscal quarter prior to the date of sale of the Shares upon foreclosure (whether or not such book value per share is unaudited and subject to adjustment), using the fully diluted total shares outstanding common stock or options, including shares issuable upon exercise of outstanding options and shares issuable upon the conversion of any preferred stock or other convertible securities as outstanding common shares for purposes of the calculation. (5) In the event of default in payment when due of any indebtedness under the Note, the Company may elect then, or at any time thereafter, to exercise all rights available to a secured party under the California Commercial Code, including the right to sell the Shares at a private or public sale or repurchase the Shares as provided above. The proceeds of any sale shall be applied in the following order: (i) To pay all reasonable expenses of the Company in enforcing this Agreement, including without limitation reasonable attorneys' fees and legal expenses incurred by the Company. (ii) In satisfaction of the remaining indebtedness under the Note. (iii) To the Purchaser, any remaining proceeds. (6) Upon full payment by the Purchaser to the Company of all amounts due on the Note, the Escrow Holder shall deliver to the Purchaser the certificate or certificates representing the Shares in the Escrow Holder's possession belonging to the Purchaser, the blank stock assignment and the executed original Note marked "canceled" by the Company, and the Escrow Holder shall be discharged of all further obligations hereunder; provided, however, that the Escrow Holder shall nevertheless retain said certificate or certificates and stock assignment as escrow agent if so required pursuant to other restrictions imposed pursuant to this Agreement, including without limitation the provisions of Section 3. -2- <PAGE> 15 3. Repurchase Option. In the event of any voluntary or involuntary termination of the Purchaser's employment by or services to the Company for any or no reason (including death or disability) before all of the Shares are released from the Company's repurchase option (see Section 4), the Company shall, upon the date of such termination (as reasonably fixed and determined by the Company) have an irrevocable, exclusive option for a period of 90 days from such date to repurchase all (but not less than all) of the Shares that shall constitute the Unreleased Shares (as defined in Section 4) at such time, at the original purchase price of $0.50 per share (the "Repurchase Price"). Such option shall be exercised by the Company by written notice to the Purchaser or the Purchaser's executor (with a copy to the Escrow Holder) and, at the Company's option, (i) by delivery to the Purchaser or the Purchaser's executor with such notice of a check in the amount of the purchase price for the Shares being repurchased, or (ii) by cancellation by the Company of an amount of the Purchaser's indebtedness to the Company equal to the purchase price for the Shares being repurchased, or (iii) by a combination of (i) and (ii) so that the combined payment and cancellation of indebtedness equals the aggregate Repurchase Price. Upon delivery of such notice and the payment of the purchase price in any of the ways described above, the Company shall become the legal and beneficial owner of the Shares being repurchased and all rights and interests therein or relating thereto, and the Company shall have the right to retain and transfer to its own name the number of Shares being repurchased by the Company. 4. Release of Shares From Repurchase Option. The Shares shall be released from the repurchase option according to the schedule set forth in the Grant(s) of Stock Purchase Right dated June 24, 1996. (a) The Shares shall be released from the Company's repurchase option according to the schedule set forth in the Grant(s) of Stock Purchase Right dated June 24, 1996. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all of the Shares shall be immediately released from the Company's repurchase option in the event of a "Change in Control" of the Company. For purposes hereof, a "Change in Control" shall be deemed to occur in the event that an individual or corporate entity and related parties cumulatively acquire stock greater than or equal to 35% of the Company's fully diluted stock. (b) Any of the Shares which have not yet been released from the Company's repurchase option are referred to herein as "Unreleased Shares". (c) The Shares which (i) have been released from the Company's repurchase option and (ii) have been paid for in full shall be delivered to the Purchaser at the Purchaser's request (see Section 6). 5.

None of the Shares or any beneficial interest therein shall be transferred, encumbered or otherwise disposed of in any manner, except for the deposit of the Shares into escrow pursuant to Section 2 and 6 hereof or the release of the Shares to the Company pursuant to such provisions, until the release of such Shares from the Company's repurchase option in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement. -3- <PAGE> 16 6. Escrow of Shares. The Shares issued under this Agreement shall be held by the Escrow Holder, along with a stock assignment executed by the Purchaser in blank in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B, pursuant to the terms of the Joint Escrow Instructions attached hereto as Exhibit C and the Security Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit D. 7. Investment Representations. In connection with the purchase of the Shares, the Purchaser represents to the Company the following: (a) The Purchaser is aware of the Company's business affairs and financial condition and has acquired sufficient information about the Company to reach an informed and knowledgeable decision to acquire the securities. The Purchaser is purchasing these securities for investment for the Purchaser's own account only and not with a view to, or for resale in connection with, any "distribution" thereof within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). (b) The Purchaser understands that the securities have not been registered under the Securities Act by reason of a specific exemption therefrom, which exemption depends upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of the Purchaser's investment intent as expressed herein. In this connection, the Purchaser understands that, in view of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission"), the statutory basis for such exemption may not be present if the Purchaser's representations meant that the Purchaser's present intention was to hold these securities for a minimum capital gains period under the tax statutes, for a deferred sale, for a market rise, for a sale if the market does not rise, or for a year or any other fixed period in the future. (c) The Purchaser further acknowledges and understands that the securities must be held indefinitely unless they are subsequently registered under the Securities Act or an exemption from such registration is available. The Purchaser further acknowledges and understands that the Company is under no obligation to register the securities. The Purchaser understands that the certificate evidencing the securities will be imprinted with a legend which prohibits the transfer of the securities unless they are registered or such registration is not required in the opinion of counsel satisfactory to the Company. 8. Stock Certificate Legends. The share certificate evidencing the Shares issued hereunder shall be endorsed with the following legends: (a) THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED FOR INVESTMENT AND NOT WITH A VIEW TO, OR IN CONNECTION WITH, THE SALE OR DISTRIBUTION THEREOF. NO SUCH SALE OR DISPOSITION MAY BE EFFECTED WITHOUT AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT RELATED THERETO OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933. -4- <PAGE> 17 (b) THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE MAY BE TRANSFERRED ONLY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS OF AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE COMPANY AND THE SHAREHOLDER, A COPY OF WHICH IS ON FILE WITH THE SECRETARY OF THE COMPANY. (c) Any legend required by any applicable state securities laws. 9. Market Stand-Off Agreement. The Purchaser hereby agrees, if so requested by the managing underwriters in such offering, that, without the prior written consent of such managing underwriters, the Purchaser will not offer, sell, contract to sell, grant any option to purchase, make any short sale or otherwise dispose of or make a distribution of any capital stock of the Company held by or on behalf of the Purchaser or beneficially owned by the Purchaser in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission for a period of up to 180 days after the date of the final prospectus relating to the Company's initial public offering. 10. Adjustment for Stock Split. All references to the number of Shares and the purchase price of the Shares in this Agreement shall be appropriately adjusted to reflect any stock split, stock dividend or other change in the Shares which may be made by the Company after the date of this Agreement. 11. Tax Consequences. The Purchaser has reviewed with the Purchaser's own tax advisors the federal, state, local and foreign tax consequences of this investment and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. The Purchaser is relying solely on such advisors and not on any statements or representations of the Company or any of its agents. The Purchaser understands that the Purchaser (and not the Company) shall be responsible for the Purchaser's own tax liability that may arise as a result of this investment or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. The Purchaser understands that Section 83 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"), taxes as ordinary income both (i) the difference between the fair market value of the Shares when the Company granted the Purchaser the right to purchase the Shares and the fair market value of the Shares on the date of this Agreement, and (ii) the difference between the amount paid for the Shares and the fair market value of the Shares as of the date any restrictions on the Shares lapse. In this context, "restriction" includes the right of the Company to buy back the Shares pursuant to its repurchase option. In the event the Company has registered under the Exchange Act, "restriction" with respect to officers, directors and 10% shareholders also means the period after the purchase of the Shares during which such officers, directors and 10% shareholders could be subject to suit under Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act. The Purchaser understands that the Purchaser may elect to be taxed at the time the Shares are purchased rather than when and as the Company's repurchase option or the Section 16(b) period expires by filing an election under Section 83(b) of the Code in the form attached hereto as Exhibit E with the I.R.S. within 30 days from the date of purchase. THE PURCHASER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT IS THE PURCHASER'S SOLE RESPONSIBILITY AND NOT THE COMPANY'S TO FILE TIMELY THE ELECTION UNDER -5- <PAGE> 18 SECTION 83(b), EVEN IF THE PURCHASER REQUESTS THE COMPANY OR ITS REPRESENTATIVES TO MAKE THIS FILING ON THE PURCHASER'S BEHALF. 12. Key Personnel Plan. This Agreement and the Purchasers' rights hereunder and with respect to the Shares shall be governed in all respects by the provisions of the Company's Key Personnel Plan. All capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined herein shall have the respective meanings defined in the Plan. 13. General Provisions. (a) This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California as they apply to contracts entered into and wholly to be performed in such state. This Agreement represents the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the purchase of Common Stock by the Purchaser and may only be modified or amended in writing signed by both parties. (b) Any notice, demand or request required or permitted to be given by either the Company or the Purchaser pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be deemed given when delivered personally or deposited in the U.S. mail, First Class with postage prepaid, and addressed to the parties at the addresses of the parties set forth at the end of this Agreement or such other address as a party may request by notifying the other in writing. (c) The rights and benefits of the Company under this Agreement shall be transferable to any one or more persons or entities, and all covenants and agreements hereunder shall inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable by the Company's successors and assigns. The rights and obligations of the Purchaser under this Agreement may only be assigned with the prior written consent of the Company. (d) Either party's failure to enforce any provision or provisions of this Agreement shall not in any way be construed as a waiver of any such provision or provisions, nor prevent that party thereafter from enforcing each and every other provision of this Agreement. The rights granted both parties herein are cumulative and shall not constitute a waiver of either party's right to assert all other legal remedies available to it under the circumstances. (e) The Purchaser agrees upon request to execute any further documents or instruments necessary or desirable to carry out the purposes or intent of this Agreement. (f) PURCHASER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THE VESTING OF SHARES PURSUANT TO SECTION 4 HEREOF IS EARNED ONLY BY CONTINUING SERVICE AS AN EMPLOYEE OR CONSULTANT AT THE WILL OF THE COMPANY (NOT THROUGH THE ACT OF BEING HIRED AT THIS DATE, AND NOT THROUGH PURCHASING SHARES HEREUNDER). PURCHASER FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THIS AGREEMENT, THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREUNDER AND THE VESTING SCHEDULE SET FORTH HEREIN DO NOT -6- <PAGE> 19 CONSTITUTE AN EXPRESS OR IMPLIED PROMISE OF CONTINUED ENGAGEMENT AS AN EMPLOYEE OR CONSULTANT FOR THE VESTING PERIOD, FOR ANY PERIOD, OR AT ALL, AND SHALL NOT INTERFERE WITH PURCHASER'S RIGHT OR THE COMPANY'S RIGHT TO TERMINATE PURCHASER'S EMPLOYMENT OR CONSULTING RELATIONSHIP AT ANY TIME, WITH OR WITHOUT CAUSE. (g) Purchaser has reviewed this Agreement in its entirety, has had an opportunity to obtain the advice of counsel prior to executing this Agreement and fully understands all provisions of this Agreement. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have duly executed this Agreement as of the day and year first set forth above. 8x8, Inc.
