Envestnet has agreed to establish a management incentive plan funded with $7 million of shares of Envestnet common stock for the benefit of certain employees of Tamarac. Such shares will be distributable at pre-established intervals, but in no event later than May 15, 2015, based upon Envestnet • Tamarac meeting certain financial targets.

The Merger is subject to approval by the holders of a majority of Tamarac’s voting shares. Holders of Tamarac’s voting securities, including Tamarac’s management, have agreed to vote all of their Tamarac shares in favor of the Merger. The merger is also subject to customary closing conditions, including customer consents, and is expected to be completed during the first half of 2012.

The Agreement contains customary representations and warranties. The representations and warranties contained in the Agreement will generally survive for eighteen months from the date of closing. Pursuant to the Agreement, following the consummation of the Merger, Envestnet is entitled to indemnification for, among other things, breaches of representations and warranties subject to a deductible and an aggregate cap.

The Agreement also contains customary covenants and agreements, including, among other things, with respect to the operation of the business of Tamarac between the signing of the Agreement and the closing of the Merger.

Either Envestnet or Tamarac may terminate the Agreement if the closing does not occur by May 31, 2012.
