4. The restricted stock units ("RSUs") were granted with both (a) a liquidity event-based vesting condition and (b) a service-based vesting condition, both of which conditions must be satisfied in order for the RSUs to vest. The liquidity event-based condition was satisfied upon the closing of the Issuer's initial public offering (the "IPO"). The shares that vested on the closing date of the IPO, and the shares that vested thereafter through August 17, 2015, were settled on August 17, 2015. The service-based vesting condition provides that 1/48th of the total number of shares vest monthly from January 30, 2014, subject to the holder's continuous service through each such date.
5. The earlier of (i) January 30, 2021 or (ii) the second anniversary of termination date.
