This Option is and shall be subject in every respect to the provisions of the Company’s 2016 Equity and Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), as amended from time to time, which is incorporated herein by reference and made a part hereof. The holder of this Option (the “Holder”) hereby accepts this Option subject to all the terms and provisions of the Plan and agrees that (a) in the event of any conflict between the terms hereof and those of the Plan, the latter shall prevail, and (b) all decisions under and interpretations of the Plan by the Administrator shall be final, binding and conclusive upon the Holder and his or her heirs and legal representatives. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the respective meanings set forth in the Plan.

Incentive Stock Option; Disqualifying Disposition. Although this Option is intended to qualify as an incentive stock option under the Code, the Company makes no representation as to the tax treatment upon exercise of this Option or sale or other disposition of the shares covered by this Option, and the Holder is advised to consult a personal tax advisor.

A “Disqualifying Disposition” shall have the meaning specified in Section 421(b) of the Code; as of the Grant Date of this Option a Disqualifying Disposition is any disposition (including any sale) of such shares before the later of (a) the second anniversary of the Grant Date of this Option and (b) the first anniversary of the date on which the Holder acquired such shares by exercising this Option, provided that such holding period requirements terminate upon the death of the Holder. The Holder shall notify the Company in writing immediately upon making a Disqualifying Disposition of any shares received pursuant to the exercise of this Option, and shall provide the Company with any information that the Company shall request concerning any such Disqualifying Disposition.
