|1.||Vesting and Exercisability|
You cannot exercise the Options until they have vested.
Regular Vesting – The Options will vest in accordance with the above schedule (provided that you remain in the employment of the Company through each such vesting date, and subject to the other terms hereof).
Special Vesting – You may be subject to the Special Vesting Dates described below if your employment or service with the Company or an Affiliate terminates.
Exercisability – You may exercise Options at any time after they vest and before they expire as described below.
All Options expire on the earlier of (a) the Date of Expiration as stated above or (b) any of the Special Expiration Dates described below. As an administrative matter, the vested portion of the Options may be exercised only until the close of the NYSE on the Expiration Date or, as applicable the Special Expiration Date, or, if such date is not a trading day on the NYSE, the last trading day before such date. Any later attempt to exercise the Options will not be honored as once an Option expires, you no longer have the right to exercise it.
|3.||Special Vesting Dates and Special Expiration Dates|
There are events that cause your Options to vest sooner than the Regular Vesting schedule discussed above or to expire sooner than the Date of Expiration as stated above. Those events are as follows:
Disability – If your employment or service with the Company or an Affiliate is terminated because of your "Disability" (within the meaning of the Employment Agreement, as defined in Section 6 below), Options that are not vested will automatically become fully vested upon your termination of employment or service, regardless of whether or not the Milestone Date has occurred. All your Options will then expire on the earlier of the first anniversary of your termination of employment or service because of your Disability or the Date of Expiration stated above. Until that time, the Options will be exercisable by you or, with evidence acceptable to the Company, your guardian or legal representative.
Death – If your employment or service with the Company or an Affiliate is terminated because of your death, Options that are not vested will automatically become fully vested upon your death, regardless of whether or not the Milestone Date has occurred. All your Options will then expire on the earlier of the first anniversary of your death or the Date of Expiration stated above. Until that time, with written proof of death and inheritance, the Options will be exercisable by your legal representative, legatees or distributees.
Termination of Employment or Service for any Other Reason than Described Above – If your employment or service with the Company or an Affiliate terminates for any reason other than Disability or death (as addressed above), including voluntary resignation of your employment or service, then the vesting or forfeiture of your Options shall be determined, upon such termination of your employment, under the provisions of your Employment Agreement that are applicable to your "MDB Public Stock Option" (as defined in Section 3(b)(iii)(I) of the Employment Agreement).
|4.||Leave of Absence|
If you take a leave of absence from the Company or an Affiliate that your employer has approved in writing in accordance with your employer's Leave of Absence Policy and from which you have a right to return to work, as determined by the Company ("Leave of Absence"), the following will apply:
Vesting of Options – Options will continue to vest in accordance with the vesting schedule set forth above.
|b.||Exercising Options – You may exercise Options that are vested or that vest during the Leave of Absence.|
Effect of Leave of Absence – If your employment or service is terminated during the Leave of Absence, the treatment of your Options will be determined as described under "Special Vesting Dates and Special Expiration Dates" above.
Method of Exercising – You must follow the procedures for exercising options established by the Company from time to time. At the time of exercise, you must pay the Exercise Price for all of the Options being exercised and any applicable Tax-Related Items (as defined below) that are required to be withheld by the Company or an Affiliate in connection with the exercise. Options may not be exercised for less than 50 Shares unless the number of Shares represented by the vested portion of the Option is less than 50 Shares, in which case the Option must be exercised for the full number of whole Shares then subject to the vested portion of the Option.
Transferability – Unless the Committee provides otherwise, Options are not transferable other than by will or the laws of descent and distribution.
Tax Withholding – Regardless of any action that the Company or your employer (the "Employer") takes with respect to any or all income tax, social insurance, payroll tax, payment on account or other tax-related items related to your participation in the Plan ("Tax-Related Items"), you acknowledge that the ultimate liability for all Tax-Related Items is and remains your responsibility and may exceed the amount actually withheld by the Company or the Employer. You further acknowledge that the Company and/or the Employer (i) make no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related Items in connection with any aspect of the Options, including, without limitation, the grant, vesting, or exercise of the Options, the issuance of Shares upon exercise of the Options, the subsequent sale of Shares acquired pursuant to such issuance and the receipt of any dividends; and (ii) do not commit to and are under no obligation to structure the terms of the grant or any aspect of the Options to reduce or eliminate your liability for Tax-Related Items or achieve any particular tax result. Furthermore, if you become subject to tax in more than one jurisdiction between the Date of Grant and the date of any relevant tax withholding event, you acknowledge that the Company and/or the Employer (or former employer, as applicable) may be required to withhold or account for Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction.
Prior to any relevant tax withholding event, you will pay or make adequate arrangements satisfactory to the Company and/or the Employer to satisfy all Tax-Related Items. In this regard, you may satisfy any obligation for Tax-Related Items by electing to have the plan administrator retain Shares to be issued upon exercise of the Option having a fair market value on the date of exercise equal to the minimum amount to be withheld. In the absence of your election, you authorize the Company and/or the Employer, or their respective agents, at their discretion, to satisfy the obligations with regard to all Tax-Related items by one or a combination of the following:
withholding from any wages or other cash compensation paid to you by the Company and/or the Employer; or
withholding from proceeds of the sale of Shares acquired upon exercise of the Options, either through a voluntary sale or through a mandatory sale arranged by the Company (on your behalf pursuant to this authorization).
To avoid negative accounting treatment, the Company may withhold or account for Tax-Related Items by considering applicable minimum statutory withholding amounts or other applicable withholding rates. If the obligation for Tax-Related Items is satisfied by withholding in Shares, you are deemed, for tax purposes, to have been issued the full number of Shares subject to the exercised Options, notwithstanding that a number of the Shares is held back solely for the purpose of paying the Tax-Related Items due as a result of any aspect of your participation in the Plan.
You shall pay to the Company or the Employer any amount of Tax-Related Items that the Company or the Employer may be required to withhold or account for as a result of your participation in the Plan that cannot be satisfied by the means previously described. The Company may refuse to issue or deliver the Shares or the proceeds of the sale of Shares if you fail to comply with your obligations in connection with the Tax-Related Items.
