AGILENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.
2018 Stock Plan
Stock Award Agreement
Section 1.    Grant of Stock Award. This Stock Award Agreement, including any additional terms for your country in the Country Specific Addendum attached hereto (collectively, this “Award Agreement”), dated as of the grant date (the “Grant Date”) indicated in your account maintained by the company providing administrative services (the “External Administrator”) in connection with the Agilent Technologies, Inc. 2018 Stock Plan (the “Plan”), is entered into between Agilent Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) and you as an individual (the “Awardee”) who has been granted a Stock Award of Restricted Stock Units (the “Stock Award”) pursuant to the Plan. The Stock Award represents the right to receive the number of Shares indicated in the Awardee’s External Administrator account subject to the fulfillment of the conditions set forth below and pursuant to and subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Plan. The Stock Award is an unfunded and unsecured promise by the Company to deliver Shares in the future. Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined herein are used with the same meanings as in the Plan.
Section 2.    Vesting Period. So long as the Awardee remains an Awardee Eligible to Vest and has not had a termination of his or her Service, the Stock Award shall vest in accordance with the vesting schedule set forth on the notice accompanying this Award Agreement (the “Notice”) which shall be deemed to constitute a part of this Award Agreement.
Section 3.    Nontransferability of Stock Award. The Stock Award shall not be transferable by the Awardee otherwise than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution. The terms of the Stock Award shall be binding on the executors, administrators, heirs and successors of the Awardee.
Section 4.    Termination of Employment or Service.
(a)    Except as set forth in this Section 4 or another written agreement between the Awardee and the Company, any unvested portion of the Stock Award shall be forfeited immediately when the Awardee has had a termination of Service or otherwise ceases to be an Awardee Eligible to Vest. Except as the Committee may otherwise determine, termination of the Awardee’s Service for any reason shall be determined without regard to whether the Awardee continues thereafter to receive any compensatory payments therefrom or is paid salary thereby in lieu of notice of termination.
(b)    Notwithstanding any provision in the Plan to the contrary, if an Awardee dies while an Employee, the Stock Award shall immediately vest in full and be settled in accordance with Section 5 below. The vested Stock Award shall be delivered to the executor or administrator of the Awardee’s estate or, if none, by the person(s) entitled to receive the vested Stock Award under the Awardee’s will or the laws of descent or distribution.

1





(c)    Notwithstanding any provision in the Plan to the contrary, if the Awardee terminates Service due to (i) total and permanent disability (a “Disability Termination”), or (ii) an involuntary termination as part of a reduction in force under the Company’s Workforce Management Program or divestiture\, the Stock Award shall vest in full and be settled in accordance with Section 5 below.
(d)    Notwithstanding any provision in the Plan to the contrary, if the Awardee voluntarily terminates Service on or after such time as the sum of the Awardee’s age and years of Service equals or exceeds 75 years and the Awardee has attained the minimum age of 60, any unvested portion of the Stock Award will be fully nonforfeitable and be settled upon the earliest to occur of (i) the normal vesting dates set forth in Section 2 above, (ii) the Awardee’s death and (iii) a Change of Control, in accordance with Section 5 below. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company receives an opinion of counsel that there has been a legal judgment and/or legal development in the Awardee’s jurisdiction that would likely result in the favorable treatment applicable to the Stock Award pursuant to this Section 4(d) being deemed unlawful and/or discriminatory, then the Company will not apply the favorable treatment at the time of the Awardee’s termination of Service, and the Stock Award shall be forfeited immediately upon Awardee’s termination of Service.
(e)    In the event of a Change of Control, the Stock Award shall vest in full immediately prior to the closing of such Change of Control. The foregoing shall not apply where the Stock Award is assumed, converted or replaced in full by the successor corporation or a parent or subsidiary of the successor; provided, however, that in the event of a Change of Control in which one or more of the successor or a parent or subsidiary of the successor has issued publicly traded equity securities, the assumption, conversion, replacement or continuation shall be made by an entity with publicly traded securities and shall provide that the holders of such assumed, converted, replaced or continued Stock Awards shall be able to acquire such publicly traded securities.
        
Section 5.    Settlement of Stock Award. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in any other agreement, the Stock Award, but only to the extent vested, shall be automatically settled in Shares on the earliest to occur of the following (each, a “Settlement Date”): (i) the normal vesting dates set forth in Section 2 above, (ii) the Awardee’s death, (iii) the Awardee’s Disability Termination, date of termination as a result of participation in the Company’s Workforce Management Program, or involuntary termination or good reason termination entitling the Awardee to full vesting of the Stock Award under a change of control agreement or plan in effect on the Grant Date, and (iv) a Change of Control.  Such Shares shall be issued to the Awardee on or as soon as practicable (and in all events within 74 days) after the applicable Settlement Date.
Section 6.    Restrictions on Issuance of Shares. The Company shall not be obligated to issue any Shares pursuant to the Stock Award unless the Shares are at that time effectively registered or exempt from registration under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and, as applicable, local laws. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Company shall not be obligated to issue any Shares pursuant to the Stock Award if such issuance violates or is not incompliance with any Applicable Laws.

Section 7.    Responsibility for Taxes.
(a)    The Awardee acknowledges that, regardless of any action the Company or, if different, the Awardee’s employer (the “Employer”) takes with respect to any or all income tax, social insurance, payroll tax, fringe benefits tax, payment on account or other tax-related withholding relating to the Awardee’s participation in the Plan (“Tax-Related Items”), the ultimate liability for all Tax-Related Items legally due by the Awardee is and remains the Awardee’s responsibility and may exceed the amount, if any, actually withheld by the Company or the Employer. The Awardee further acknowledges that the Company and/or the Employer (1) make no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related Items in connection with any aspect of the Stock Award, including the grant, vesting (including on account of the Awardee’s termination of Service as described in Section 4(d)) and settlement of the Stock Award, the subsequent sale of Shares acquired pursuant to the Stock Award and the receipt of any dividends or other distributions, if any; and (2) do not commit to structure the terms of the grant or any aspect of the Stock Award to reduce or eliminate the Awardee’s liability for Tax-Related Items. Further, if the Awardee is subject to Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction, the Awardee acknowledges 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.
(b)    The Awardee authorizes the Company and/or the Employer to, in the sole discretion of the Company and/or the Employer, withhold all applicable Tax-Related Items legally payable by the Awardee from the Awardee’s wages or other cash compensation paid to the Awardee by the Company and/or the Employer, within legal limits, or from proceeds of the sale of Shares. Alternatively, or in addition, if permissible under local law, the Company and/or the Employer may in its sole discretion (1) sell or arrange for the sale of Shares that the Awardee acquires pursuant to the Stock Award to meet the withholding obligation for Tax-Related Items, and/or (2) withhold in Shares otherwise payable pursuant to the Stock Award, provided that the Company and/or the Employer only withholds the amount of Shares necessary to satisfy not more than the maximum withholding amount. If the obligation for Tax-Related Items is satisfied by withholding a number of Shares as described herein, for tax purposes, the Awardee is deemed to have been issued the full number of Shares subject to the vested/settled Stock Awards, notwithstanding that a number of the Shares are held back solely for the purpose of paying the Tax-Related Items.
(c)     Finally, the Awardee 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 as a result of the Awardee’s participation in the Plan or the Awardee’s acquisition of Shares pursuant to the Stock Award that is not satisfied by the means previously described. The Company may refuse to deliver the Shares if the Awardee fails to comply with the Awardee’s obligations in connection with the Tax-Related Items as described in this section.
Section 8.    Holding Period for Officers and Executives. Notwithstanding anything in the Plan or this Award Agreement to the contrary, if the Awardee is an officer or executive of the Company (as defined in the Company’s human resources system of record) on the Grant Date, any Shares that are issued to the Awardee hereunder may not be sold, assigned, conveyed, gifted, pledged, hypothecated or otherwise transferred in any manner, other than by will or the laws of descent or distribution, until the first anniversary of the applicable Settlement Date (or, if earlier, the date of the Awardee’s death or Disability Termination or a Change of Control).

Section 9.    Adjustment. The number of Shares subject to the Stock Award and the price per share, if any, of such Shares may be adjusted by the Company from time to time pursuant to the Plan.
Section 10.    Nature of the Award. By accepting the Stock Award, the Awardee acknowledges that:
(a)    the Plan is established voluntarily by the Company, it is discretionary in nature and it may be modified, amended, suspended or terminated by the Company at any time, unless otherwise provided in the Plan and this Award Agreement;
(b)    the grant of the Stock Award is extraordinary, voluntary and occasional and does not create any contractual or other right to receive future grants of Stock Awards, or benefits in lieu of Stock Awards, even if Stock Awards have been granted in the past;
(c)    all decisions with respect to future Stock Awards, if any, will be at the sole discretion of the Company;
(d)    participation in the Plan shall not create a right to further employment with the Employer and shall not interfere with the ability of the Employer to terminate the Awardee’s employment relationship at any time;
(e)    participating in the Plan is voluntary;
(f)    the Stock Award, the Shares underlying the Stock Award and the income from and value of same, are extraordinary items that do not constitute recurring or on-going compensation of any kind for services of any kind rendered to the Company or the Employer, and which are outside the scope of the Awardee’s employment contract, if any;
(g)    the Stock Award, the Shares underlying the Stock Award and the income from and the value of same, are not part of normal or expected compensation or salary for any purposes, including, but not limited to, calculating any severance, resignation, termination, redundancy, end of service payments, bonuses, long-service awards, pension or retirement benefits or similar payments and in no event should be considered as compensation for, or relating in any way to, past services to the Company or the Employer;
(h)    unless otherwise agreed with the Company in writing, the Stock Award, the Shares underlying the Stock Award and the income from and value of same, are not granted as consideration for, or in connection with, the Service the Awardee may provide as a director of an Affiliate or Subsidiary of the Company;
(i)    in the event the Awardee is not an employee of the Company, the Stock Award will not be interpreted to form an employment contract or relationship with the Company; and furthermore, the Stock Award will not be interpreted to form an employment contract with the Employer or any Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Company;
(j)    the future value of the underlying Shares is unknown, indeterminable and cannot be predicted with certainty, and the Company makes no representation regarding such

future value and is not responsible for any decrease in value or any foreign exchange fluctuations between the Awardee’s local currency and the United States Dollar that may affect such value;
(k)    if the Awardee accepts the Stock Award and obtains Shares, the value of those Shares acquired may increase or decrease in value;
(l)    no claim or entitlement to compensation or damages shall arise from termination of the Stock Award or diminution in value of the Stock Award or Shares acquired under the Stock Award resulting from termination of the Awardee’s employment by the Company or the Employer;
(m)    by accepting the grant of the Stock Award through the methods described in Section 24 below, the Awardee and the Company agree that the Stock Award is granted under and governed by the terms and conditions of the Plan and this Award Agreement (including the Country-Specific Addendum), and the Awardee acknowledges that he or she agrees to accept as binding, conclusive and final all decisions or interpretations of the Company and/or the External Administrator regarding any questions relating to the Plan and this Award Agreement;
(n)    this Award Agreement is between the Awardee and the Company, and that the Awardee’s local employer is not a party to this Award Agreement;
(o)    Applicable Laws (including any rules or regulations governing securities, foreign exchange, tax, labor or other matters) of the country in which the Awardee is residing or working at the time of grant or vesting of the Stock Award or the sale of Shares may subject the Awardee to additional procedural or regulatory requirements that the Awardee solely is responsible for and must independently fulfill in relation to ownership or sale of such Shares;
(p)     the ownership of Shares or assets and the holding of a bank or brokerage account may subject the Awardee to reporting requirements imposed by tax, banking, and/or other authorities in the Awardee’s country, that the Awardee solely is responsible for complying with such requirements, and that any cross-border cash remittance made to transfer of proceeds received upon the sale of Shares must be made through a locally authorized financial institution or registered foreign exchange agency and may require the Awardee to provide to such entity certain information regarding the transaction; and
(q)    the Company reserves the right to impose other requirements or terms and conditions (which may be set forth in but are not limited to the Country-Specific Addendum hereto) on the Awardee’s participation in the Plan, the Stock Award and any Shares acquired thereunder, to the extent the Company determines it is necessary or advisable for legal or administrative reasons.
Section 11.    Data Privacy. The Awardee explicitly and unambiguously consents to the collection, use and transfer, in electronic or other form, of the Awardee’s personal data as described in this document by and among, as applicable, the Company, the Employer and the External Administrator for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Awardee’s participation in the Plan.

5





The Awardee hereby understands that the Company and the Employer hold certain personal information about the Awardee, including, but not limited to, the Awardee’s name, home address and telephone number, email address, date of birth, social insurance, passport or other identification number, salary, nationality, job title, any Shares or directorships held in the Company, details of all Stock Awards or any other entitlement to Shares or equivalent benefits awarded, canceled, exercised, vested, unvested or outstanding in the Awardee’s favor, for the purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Plan (“Data”). The Awardee hereby understands that Data may be transferred to any third parties (including the External Administrator) assisting in the implementation, administration and management of the Plan, that these recipients may be located in the Awardee’s country or elsewhere, such as outside the European Economic Area, and that the recipient’s country may have different data privacy laws and protections than the Awardee’s country. All such transfers of Data will be in accordance with the Company’s Privacy Policies and Guidelines. The Awardee hereby understands that the Awardee may request a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of the Data by contacting the Awardee’s local human resources representative. The Awardee authorizes the recipients to receive, possess, use, retain and transfer the Data, in electronic or other form, for the purposes of implementing, administering and managing the Awardee’s participation in the Plan, including any requisite transfer of such Data as may be required to a broker or other third party with whom the Awardee may elect to deposit any Shares acquired upon vesting of the Stock Award. The Awardee hereby understands that the Awardee may, at any time, view Data, request information about the storage and processing of Data and require any necessary amendments to Data. Further, the Awardee understands that he or she is providing the consents herein on a purely voluntary basis. If the Awardee does not consent, or if he or she later seeks to revoke his or her consent, his or her employment status or service with the Employer will not be affected by reason of his or her refusal to consent; the only consequence of refusing or withdrawing the Awardee’s consent is that the Company would not be able to grant Stock Awards or other equity awards to the Awardee or administrator or maintain such awards. Therefore, the Awardee understands that refusing or withdrawing his or her consent may affect his or her ability to participate in the Plan. For more information on the consequences of the Awardee’s refusal to consent or withdrawal of consent, the Awardee understands that he or she may contact his or her human resources representative responsible for the Awardee’s country at the local or regional level.
Finally, upon request of the Company or the Employer, the Awardee agrees to provide an executed data privacy consent form (or any other agreements or consents that may be required by the Company and/or the Employer) that the Company and/or the Employer may deem necessary to obtain from the Awardee for the purpose of administering the Awardee’s participation in the Plan in compliance with the data privacy laws in his or her country, either now or in the future. The Awardee understands and agrees that he or she will not be able to participate in the Plan if he or she fails to provide any such consent or agreement requested by the Company and/or the Employer.
Section 12.    No Rights Until Issuance. The Awardee shall have no rights hereunder as a shareholder with respect to any Shares subject to the Stock Award until the date that Shares are issued to the Awardee. The Committee in its sole discretion may substitute a cash payment in lieu of Shares, such cash payment to be equal to the Fair Market Value of the Shares on the date that such Shares would have otherwise been issued under the terms of the Plan and this Award Agreement.

6





Section 13.    Administrative Procedures. The Awardee agrees to follow the administrative procedures that may be established by the Company and/or its designated broker for participation in the Plan which may include a requirement that the Shares issued hereunder be held by the Company’s designated broker until the Awardee disposes of such Shares. The Awardee further agrees that the Company may determine the actual method of withholding for Tax-Related Items as described in Section 7 above. The Awardee agrees to update the Company with respect to the Awardee’s home address, contact information and any information necessary for the Company or one of its affiliates to process any required tax withholding or reporting related to the Stock Award.
Section 14.    Governing Law and Venue. This Award Agreement shall be governed by and construed according to the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to its principles of conflicts of laws as provided in the Plan. Any proceeding arising out of or relating to this Award Agreement or the Plan may be brought only in the state or federal courts located in the Northern District of California where this grant is made and/or to be performed, and the parties to this Award Agreement consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts.
Section 15.    Amendment. The Stock Award may be amended as provided in the Plan.
Section 16.    Language. By electing to accept this Award Agreement, the Awardee acknowledges that he or she is sufficiently proficient in English, or has consulted with an advisor who is sufficiently proficient in English so as to allow the Awardee to understand the terms and conditions of this Award Agreement. Further, if the Awardee has received this or any other document related to the Plan translated into a language other than English and if the meaning of the translated version is different than the English version, the English version will control.
Section 17.    Electronic Delivery and Acceptance. The Company may, in its sole discretion, decide to deliver any documents related to current or future participation in the Plan by electronic means. The Awardee hereby consents to receive such documents by electronic delivery and agrees to participate in the Plan through an on-line or electronic system established and maintained by the Company or a third party designated by the Company.
Section 18.     Severability. The provisions of this Award Agreement are severable and if any one or more provisions are determined to be illegal or otherwise unenforceable, in whole or in part, the remaining provisions shall nevertheless be binding and enforceable.
Section 19.    Recoupment. The Stock Award is subject to the terms of the Agilent Technologies Executive Compensation Recoupment Policy in the form approved by the Committee as of the Grant Date (the “Policy”), if and to the extent that the Policy by its terms applies to the Stock Award and the Awardee; and the terms of the Policy as of the Grant Date are incorporated by reference herein and made a part hereof.
Section 20.    Section 409A of the Code.
(a)    The Stock Award shall be administered, interpreted, and construed in a manner that is intended to avoid the imposition on the Awardee of any additional tax, penalty, or interest under Section 409A of the Code. The preceding provision, however, shall not be construed as a guarantee of any particular tax effect and the Company shall not be liable to the Awardee for any payment

7





made under the Stock Award that is determined to result in an additional tax, penalty, or interest under Section 409A of the Code, nor for reporting in good faith any payment made under the Stock Award as an amount includible in gross income under Section 409A of the Code.
(b)    “Termination of employment,” “resignation,” or words of similar import, as used in the Stock Award means for purposes of payments under the Stock Award that are payments of deferred compensation subject to Section 409A of the Code as to which the payment event is such term or words, the Awardee’s “separation from service” as defined in Section 409A of the Code.
(c)    To the extent any payment or settlement hereunder that is a payment of deferred compensation subject to Section 409A of the Code is contingent upon a “change in control,” such payment or settlement shall only occur if the event giving rise to the change in control would also constitute a change in ownership or effective control of the Company, or a change in the ownership of a substantial portion of the assets of the Company, within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code. The vesting of the Stock Award shall not be affected by the preceding sentence.
(d)    If a payment obligation under the Stock Award arises on account of the Awardee’s separation from service while the Awardee is a “specified employee” (as defined in Section 409A of the Code), any payment of “deferred compensation” (as defined under Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-1(b)(1), after giving effect to the exemptions in Treasury Regulation Sections 1.409A-1(b)(3) through (b)(12)) that is scheduled to be paid within six months after such separation from service shall accrue without interest and shall be paid within 15 days after the end of the six-month period beginning on the date of such separation from service or, if earlier, within 15 days after the Awardee’s death.
Section 21.    Insider Trading / Market Abuse Laws. The Awardee may be subject to insider trading restrictions and/or market abuse laws based on the exchange on which the Shares are listed and in applicable jurisdictions including the United States and the Awardee’s country or his or her broker’s country, if different, which may affect the Awardee’s ability to accept, acquire, sell or otherwise dispose of Shares, rights to Shares (e.g., Stock Awards) or rights linked to the value of Shares (e.g., dividend equivalents) during such times as the Awardee is considered to have “inside information” regarding the Company (as defined by the laws in applicable jurisdictions). Local insider trading laws and regulations may prohibit the cancellation or amendment of orders the Awardee placed before he or she possessed inside information. Furthermore, the Awardee could be prohibited from (i) disclosing the inside information to any third party, which may include fellow employees and (ii) “tipping” third parties or causing them otherwise to buy or sell securities. Any restrictions under these laws or regulations are separate from and in addition to any restrictions that may be imposed under any applicable insider trading policy of the Company. The Awardee acknowledges that it is the Awardee’s responsibility to comply with any applicable restrictions and the Awardee should speak with his or her personal legal advisor on this matter.
Section 22.    Foreign Asset/Account Reporting; Exchange Control. The Awardee’s country may have certain foreign asset and/or account reporting requirements and/or exchange controls which may affect the Awardee’s ability to acquire or hold Shares under the Plan or cash received from participating in the Plan (including from any dividends received or sale proceeds arising from the sale of Shares) in an account outside the Awardee’s country. The Awardee may be required to report such accounts, assets or transactions to the tax or other authorities in his or her

8





country. The Awardee also may be required to repatriate sale proceeds or other funds received as a result of Awardee’s participation in the Plan to his or her country through a designated bank or broker and/or within a certain time after receipt. The Awardee acknowledges that it is his or her responsibility to comply with such regulations, and the Awardee should consult his or her personal legal advisor for any details.
Section 23.    Entire Agreement. The Plan is incorporated herein by reference. The Plan, this Award Agreement and the Notice (including the Country-Specific Addendum attached hereto) constitute the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede in their entirety all prior undertakings and agreements of the Company and the Awardee with respect to the subject matter hereof, and may not be modified adversely to the Awardee’s interest except by means of a writing signed by the Company and the Awardee.
Section 24.    Acceptance and Rejection. This Award Agreement is one of the documents governing the Stock Award, which the Awardee may accept or reject online through the External Administrator’s website. If the Awardee has not rejected the Stock Award by the time of the first vesting event, the Awardee will be deemed to have accepted the Stock Award, and the Shares vested pursuant to the Stock Award will be issued and taxed accordingly.
Section 25.    Country-Specific Addendum. Notwithstanding any provision herein, the Awardee’s participation in the Plan shall be subject to any special terms and conditions as set forth in the Country-Specific Addendum for the Awardee’s country of residence, if any. Moreover, if the Awardee relocates to one of the countries included in the Country-Specific Addendum, the special terms and conditions will apply to the Awardee, to the extent the Company determines that the application of such terms and conditions is necessary or advisable for legal or administrative reasons. The Country-Specific Addendum constitutes part of this Award Agreement.

Finally, if the Awardee is a citizen or resident of a country other than the one in which the Awardee is currently working, transfers employment and/or residency after the Stock Award is granted, or is considered a resident of another country for local law purposes, the notifications contained herein may not apply to him or her and the Company shall, in its discretion, determine to what extent the terms and conditions contained herein shall be applicable to the Awardee.

The Awardee's rights in relation to their Personal Data held by the Company
The Awardee has certain rights in relation to their personal data that we hold. Some of these only apply in certain circumstances as set out in more detail below. We also set out how to exercise those rights. Please note that we will require the Awardee to verify their identity before we respond to any such requests, by providing us with two forms of identification: one from List A; and one from List B.
List A
List B
Valid Passport.
Recent utility bill showing data subject’s current home address (no more than 3 months’ old).
Valid Photo Driving Licence.
Recent Bank or Building Society Statement (no more than 3 months’ old).

To exercise any of these rights, unless otherwise stated, please email data-protection.officer@agilent.com to receive the Data Subject Request Form which must be returned to the Data Protection Officer. We must respond to a request by the Awardee to exercise those rights without undue delay and at least within one (1) month (although this may be extended by a further two (2) months in certain circumstances).
The Awardee has the following rights in relation to their personal data:
Access: to access the personal data held by the Company about the Awardee and certain information about how we use it and who we share it with – the Awardee's right of access can be exercised by filling out the form referenced above and submitting it to data-protection.officer@agilent.com;
Portability: in certain circumstances, to receive or ask us to provide their personal data to a third party in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, although we will not provide the Awardee with certain personal data if to so would interfere with another’s individual’s rights (e.g. where providing the personal data we hold about the Awardee would reveal information about another person) or where another exemption applies (we can only do so where it is technically feasible; we are not responsible for the security of the personal data or its processing once received by the third party);
Correction: to correct any personal data held about the Awardee that is inaccurate and have incomplete data completed (including by the provision of a supplementary statement). Where the Awardee requests correction, please explain in detail why the personal data we hold about the Awardee is inaccurate or incomplete so that we can assess whether a correction is required.

A-4





Please note that while we assess whether the personal data we hold about the Awardee is inaccurate or incomplete, the Awardee may exercise their right to restrict our processing of the applicable data as described below. Where we agree that the personal data is inaccurate or incomplete, we will try to tell any third party to whom we have disclosed the relevant data so that they can rectify the data, as well;
Please note that the Awardee can update and correct their personal data through the following self-service portals:
the Meidas portal at https://meidas.hr.agilent.com/. Here the Awardee can update their personal information such as home and work addresses, names, birth dates, telephone numbers, email, and tax ID numbers.
the Fidelity NetBenefits portal at https://nb.fidelity.com/public/nb/default/home. Here the Awardee can update their contribution withholding rates or request to withdraw from the ESPP.
Erasure: that we erase the personal data held about the Awardee in the following circumstances:
the Awardee believes that it is no longer necessary for us to hold the personal data the we hold about the Awardee; or
the Awardee believes the personal data the we hold about the Awardee is being unlawfully processed by us;
Also note that the Awardee may exercise their right to restrict our processing of the Awardee's personal data whilst we consider the Awardee's request. Please provide as much detail as possible on the reasons for the request to assist us in determining whether the Awardee has a valid basis for erasure. We will retain the personal data if there are valid grounds under law for us to do so (e.g., for the defence of legal claims or freedom of expression) but we will let you know if that is the case.
Restriction of Processing to Storage Only: to require us to stop processing the personal data we hold about the Awardee other than for storage purposes in certain circumstances. Please note, however, that if we stop processing their personal data, we may use it again if there are valid grounds under the Data Protection Laws for us to do so (e.g. for the defence of legal claims or for another’s protection). Where we agree to stop processing the personal data, we will try to tell any third party to whom we have disclosed the relevant personal data so that they can stop processing the data, as well. The Awardee may request that we stop processing and just store the personal data held about the Awardee where:
the Awardee believes the personal data is not accurate for the period it takes for us to verify whether the data is accurate;
we wish to erase the personal data as the processing we are doing is unlawful but the Awardee wants us to simply restrict the use of that data; or

A-5





we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of the processing but the Awardee requires us to retain the data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
In the event that the Awardee wishes to make a complaint about how we process the Awardee's personal data, please use the above email address and we will endeavour to deal with such requests as soon as possible. This is without prejudice to the Awardee's right to launch a claim with the relevant data protection authority.
The Awardee's obligations in relation to Personal Data
It is important that changes in the Awardee's personal circumstances are updated as soon as possible by making changes directly through the Meidas and Fidelity NetBenefits portals, as stated above in the section entitled 'The Awardee's rights in relation to their Personal Data held by the Company'.

A-8





Code, as amended (a “French-qualified” Stock Award). Certain events may affect the status of the Stock Award as French-qualified and the Stock Award may be disqualified in the future. The Company does not make any undertaking or representation to maintain the qualified status of the Stock Award. If the Stock Award no longer qualifies as a French-qualified Stock Award, the specific tax and social security treatment will not apply, and the Awardee will be required to pay his or her portion of social security contributions resulting from the Stock Award (as well as any income tax that is due).

Plan and French Plan Terms. The Stock Award is subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan and the Rules of the Agilent Technologies, Inc. 2018 Stock Plan for Stock Options and Restricted Stock Units Granted to Participants in France (the “French Plan”). To the extent that any term is defined in both the Plan and the French Plan, for purposes of this grant of a French-qualified Stock Award, the definitions in the French Plan shall prevail.

Settlement in Shares. Notwithstanding any discretion in the Plan or the Award Agreement to settle the Stock Award in cash, the French-qualified Stock Award will be settled in Shares only. The Stock Award does not provide any right for Awardee to receive a cash payment.

Termination of Employer or Service. This provision replaces Section 4(b) of the Award Agreement in its entirety:

Notwithstanding any provision in the Plan or Award Agreement to the contrary, in the event of the Awardee’s death while employed by the Company or a Subsidiary or Affiliate or after the Awardee’s termination of Service in accordance with Section 4(d), on the date of death, the Stock Award shall become fully transferable to the Awardee’s heirs. The Awardee’s heirs may request issuance of the underlying Shares within six months of the Awardee’s death. If the Awardee’s heirs do not request the issuance of the underlying Shares within six months of the Awardee’s death, the Stock Award will be forfeited.

Restrictions on Sale of Shares. Awardee may not sell or transfer the Shares issued pursuant to the Stock Award prior to the second anniversary of the Grant Date or such other period as is required to comply with the minimum mandatory holding period applicable to Shares underlying French-qualified awards under Section L. 225-197-1 of the French Commercial Code, the French Tax Code or the French Social Security Code, as amended. Notwithstanding the above, the Awardee’s heirs, in case of the Awardee’s death, or the Awardee in case of the Awardee’s Disability (as defined under the French Plan), are not subject to this restriction on the sale of Shares.

If the Awardee qualifies as a managing director of the Company under French law (“mandataires sociauxi.e., Président du Conseil d'Administration, Directeur Général, Directeur Général Délégué, Membre du Directoire, Gérant de Sociétés par actions), the Awardee is required to hold 20% of the Shares issued upon the vesting of the Stock Award in a nominative account under procedures implemented by the Company and is not permitted to sell or transfer the Shares until he or she ceases to serve as a managing director, as long as this restriction is a requirement under French law and unless law or regulations provide for a lower percentage (in which case these requirements apply to the lower percentage of Shares required to be held).

Any Shares acquired upon vesting of the Stock Award may not be sold during certain Closed Periods as provided for and defined by Section L. 225-197-1 of the French Commercial Code, as amended, and by the French Plan, for so long as and to the extent that the Closed Periods are applicable to Shares underlying French-qualified Stock Awards granted by the Company.

NEW ZEALAND
Securities Law Notice. Warning: This is an offer of rights to receive Shares underlying the Stock Awards. Stock Awards give Awardees a stake in the ownership of the Company. The Awardee may receive a return if dividends are paid on the Shares.
If the Company runs into financial difficulties and is wound up, the Awardee will be paid only after all creditors and holders of preferred shares have been paid. The Awardee may lose some or all of his or her investment.
New Zealand law normally requires people who offer financial products to give information to investors before they invest. This information is designed to help investors to make an informed decision. The usual rules do not apply to this offer because it is made under an employee share scheme. As a result, the Awardee may not be given all the information usually required. The Awardee will also have fewer other legal protections for this investment.
The Awardee should ask questions, read all documents carefully, and seek independent financial advice before committing himself or herself.
The Shares are quoted or approved for trading on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”). This means that, if the Awardee vests in Stock Awards and Shares are issued to the Awardee, the Awardee can sell his or her investment on the NYSE if there are buyers for it.

Shares must be held with the External Administrator. The Company has designated a third-party to provide administrative services in connection with the Plan (the “External Administrator”). Pursuant to its authority under the Plan, the Company will require that the Awardee hold any Shares issued to Awardee in connection with the vesting of the Stock Award with the External Administrator until such time as the Awardee sells the Shares. Until the Awardee decides to sell the Shares issued pursuant to the vesting of the Stock Award, the Awardee cannot transfer the Shares to an account with another broker or request that share certificates be issued to the Awardee.
Securities Law Notice. The Award Agreement, the Stock Award, the Plan and all other materials the Awardee may receive regarding participation in the Plan do not constitute advertising or an offering of securities in Russia. The issuance of Shares under the Plan has not and will not be registered in Russia and, therefore, the Shares described in any Plan documents may not be offered or placed in public circulation in Russia.
In no event will Shares acquired upon vesting of the Stock Award be delivered to you in Russia; all Shares acquired upon vesting of the Stock Award will be maintained on the Awardee’s behalf outside of Russia.

Therefore, the Awardee understands that refusing or withdrawing his or her consent may affect his or her ability to participate in the Plan. For more information on the consequences of the Awardee’s refusal to consent or withdrawal of consent, the Awardee understands that he or she may contact his or her human resources representative responsible for the Awardee’s country at the local or regional level.

Labor Law Acknowledgment. This provision supplements Section 10 (Nature of the Award) of the Award Agreement:
In accepting the Stock Award, the Awardee acknowledges that the Awardee consents to participation in the Plan and has received a copy of the Plan.
The Awardee understands that the Company has unilaterally, gratuitously and discretionally decided to grant the Stock Award under the Plan to individuals who may be employees of the Company or its Affiliates or Subsidiaries throughout the world. The decision is a limited decision that is entered into upon the express assumption and condition that any grant will not bind the Company or any of its Affiliates or Subsidiaries. Consequently, the Awardee understands that the Stock Award is granted on the assumption and condition that the Stock Award and any Shares acquired upon vesting of the Stock Award shall not become a part of any employment contract (either with the Company or any of its related entities) and shall not be considered a mandatory benefit, salary for any purposes (including severance compensation) or any other right whatsoever.
Additionally, the Awardee understands that the vesting of the Stock Award is expressly conditioned on the Awardee’s continued and active rendering of Service to the Company or a Subsidiary or Affiliate such that if the Awardee’s Service is terminated for any reason (including for the reasons listed below but with the exception of the circumstances specified in Section 4(b)-(d) of the Award

A-20





Agreement), the Award will cease vesting immediately effective as of the date the Awardee’s Service is terminated.  This will be the case, for example, even if (a) the Awardee is considered to be unfairly dismissed without good cause (i.e., subject to a “despido improcedente”); (b) the Awardee is dismissed for disciplinary or objective reasons or due to a collective dismissal; (c) the Awardee’s Service is terminated due to a change of work location, duties or any other employment or contractual condition; (d) the Awardee’s Service is terminated due to unilateral breach of contract of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or Affiliates; or (e) the Awardee’s Service is terminated for any other reason (with the exception of the circumstances specified in Section 4(b)-(d) of the Award Agreement).  Consequently, upon termination of Service for any of the above reasons, the Awardee will automatically lose any rights to the Stock Award to the extent that it has not yet become vested as of the date the Awardee’s Service is terminated, as described in the Award Agreement.  The Awardee acknowledges that he or she has read and specifically accepts the conditions referred to above and in Section 4 of the Award Agreement.
Finally, the Awardee understands that this grant would not be made to the Awardee but for the assumptions and conditions referred to above; thus, the Awardee acknowledges and freely accepts that should any or all of the assumptions be mistaken or should any of the conditions not be met for any reason, then any grant of or right to the Stock Award shall be null and void.
Securities Law Acknowledgement. The Stock Award and the Shares subject to the Stock Award do not qualify under Spanish regulation as securities. No “offer of securities to the public,” as defined under Spanish law, has taken place or will take place in the Spanish territory. The Award Agreement has not been nor will be registered with the Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores, and does not constitute a public offering prospectus.

Termination of Employment or Service. Section 4(a) of the Award Agreement is hereby amended in its entirety to read as follows:
“(a)    Any unvested Stock Award shall be forfeited immediately when the Awardee ceases to be an Awardee Eligible to Vest, unless the Awardee ceases to be an Awardee Eligible to Vest due to the Awardee’s death, total and permanent disability, termination of Service in accordance with Section 4(d) or participation in the Company’s Workforce Management Program. Except as the Committee may otherwise determine, termination of the Awardee’s employment or service for any reason shall occur on the date such Awardee ceases to perform services for the Company or any Affiliate without regard to whether such Awardee continues thereafter to receive any compensatory payments therefrom or is paid salary thereby in lieu of notice of termination or, with respect to a member of the Board who is not also an employee of the Company or any Subsidiary, on the date such Awardee is no longer a member of the Board.”
Responsibility for Taxes. The following provision supplements Section 7 (Responsibility for Taxes) of the Award Agreement:
“Without limitation to Section 7 of the Award Agreement, the Awardee agrees that the Awardee is liable for all Tax-Related Items and hereby covenants to pay all such Tax-Related Items as and when requested by the Company or, if different, the Employer or by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (“HMRC”) (or any other tax authority or any other relevant authority). The Awardee also agrees to indemnify and keep indemnified the Company or the Employer against any Tax-Related Items that they are required to pay or withhold or have paid or will pay to HMRC (or any other tax authority or any other relevant authority) on the Awardee’s behalf.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Awardee is a director or executive officer of the Company (within the meaning of Section 13(k) of the Exchange Act), the terms of the immediately foregoing provision will not apply. In such case, if the amount of any income tax due is not collected from or paid by the Awardee within 90 days of the end of the U.K. tax year in which an event giving rise to the indemnification described above occurs, the amount of any uncollected income taxes may constitute a benefit to the Awardee on which additional income tax and national insurance contributions (“NICs”) may be payable. The Awardee will be responsible for reporting and paying any income tax due on this additional benefit directly to HMRC under the self-assessment regime and for paying to the Company or the Employer, as applicable, any employee NICs due on this additional benefit, which the Company or the Employer may recover from the Awardee by any of the means referred to in Section 7 of the Award Agreement.”
Joint Election. As a condition of the Awardee’s participation in the Plan and the vesting of the Stock Award, the Awardee agrees to accept any liability for secondary Class 1 national insurance contributions (the “Employer NICs”) which may be payable by the Company and/or the Employer in connection with the Stock Award and any event giving rise to Tax-Related Items. To accomplish

A-22





the foregoing, the Awardee agrees to execute a joint election with the Company (the “Election”), the form of such Election being formally approved by HMRC, and any other consent or elections required to accomplish the transfer of the Employer NICs to the Awardee. The Awardee further agrees to execute such other joint elections as may be required between him or her and any successor to the Company and/or the Employer. The Awardee further agrees that the Company and/or the Employer may collect the Employer NICs by any of the means set forth in Section 7 of the Award Agreement.

No Recoupment. Section 19 of the Award Agreement shall not apply.
