Sample Business Contracts

Employment Agreement - DivX Inc. and Fred Gerson

Employment Forms

  • Employment Agreement. Employers can customize an employment agreement that states the salary, benefits, working hours and other important provisions for their new or existing employee.
  • Consulting Agreement. Answer simple questions to build a contract with a consultant. Specify the services rendered, when payment is due, as well as IP rights.
  • Commission Agreement. Employers who compensate their sales employees based on commissions can prepare an agreement to reduce misunderstandings by specifying the base salary and how commissions are calculated.
  • Executive Employment Agreement. Companies may offer their business executives a contract that is different from the one provided to their regular employees. Executive employment agreements may be more complex because the compensation structure may include a combination of salary and commissions, provide for bonuses based on sales, stock or other financial targets, and include non-compete, confidentiality and severance provisions.
  • Sales Representative Contract. Independent sales representatives offer companies the potential to increase the sale of products or services without the burden of increasing headcount. Both parties should understand how commissions are calculated, when commissions will be paid, as well as how the representative will treat confidential information from the company and whether the representative may also sell a competing line of products or services.

    Amended and Restated Offer Letter


        DivX, Inc. ("DXN") is pleased to formally extend to amend and restate its offer letter to you dated March 2005 in which we offered you the opportunity to join the DXN Board of Directors.

        This letter supersedes all prior agreements, including without limitation the March 2005 offer letter.

        You are a member of the Audit Committee and will be a member of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. As we discussed, it is essential that you attend scheduled board meetings in person, but we understand that other matters may require you to attend no more than 20% of each year's board meetings telephonically.

        You have been granted a non-qualified stock option to purchase 60,000 shares of common stock of DXN. At the next meeting of the Board of Directors on April 27, 2006, it will be recommended to the Board that you be granted a non-qualified stock option to purchase 40,000 shares of common stock of DXN. The exercise price per share for these options will be fixed based on DXN's common stock price as determined by DXN's board of directors for the three days prior to date of grant. This grant will vest 25% upon the first year anniversary of the grant date and then 1/48 per month thereafter. Vesting will depend upon your continued status as a Director of DXN.

        In the event that you are a Director and there is a "Change in Control," you will receive one year of accelerated vesting. "Change of Control" shall mean the sale of all or substantially all of the assets of DXN or the acquisition of DXN by another entity by means of consolidation or merger after which the then current shareholders of DXN hold less than 50% of the voting power of the surviving corporation provided that a reincorporation of DXN shall nor be a Change of Control.

        DXN will extend Directors & Officers ("D&O") insurance coverage for liability resulting from your acts or omissions as a Director of DXN pursuant to the terms and conditions of DXN's current D&O insurance policy.

        To the extent permitted under DXN's Articles of Incorporation or By-Laws, DXN further agrees to indemnify you for any damages, suits, liability or claims, resulting from or arising out of your acts or omissions as a Director of DXN, provided the DXN's indemnification under this provision shall not extend to acts of bad faith, willful misconduct, gross negligence, fraud, embezzlement or other material dishonesty, or commission of a felony or other crime of moral turpitude.

        As a Director of DXN you will have access to confidential information and will continue to be bound by the DXN Nondisclosure Agreement, a copy of which you have already executed.

        Please indicate by signature below your agreement and acknowledgement of this amended and restated letter and fax it to our General Counsel, David Richter (fax: 858-882-0604).
