Unless otherwise defined herein, the terms defined in the Dexcom Inc. (the “Company”) 2005 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) shall have the same defined meanings in this Award Agreement (Restricted Stock Units) (the “Agreement”).

You have been granted Restricted Stock Units (“RSUs”) subject to the terms, restrictions and conditions of the Plan, the Notice of Restricted Stock Unit Award (the “Notice”) and this Agreement.

1. Settlement.    Settlement of RSUs shall be made within the earlier of (i) 90 days following the applicable date of vesting under the vesting schedule or (ii) March 15 of the year following the year of vesting as set forth in the Notice. Settlement of RSUs shall be in Shares.

2. Withholding and Net Issuance of the Shares.    When, under applicable tax laws, Participant incurs tax liability in connection with the vesting or settlement of any RSUs or issuance of Shares in connection therewith that is subject to tax withholding by the Company, the Company may satisfy the minimum tax withholding obligation on behalf of the Participant by either (a) withholding from the Shares to be issued, the number of Shares having a fair market value (determined on the date that the amount of tax to be withheld is determined) equal to the amount required to be withheld for income and employment taxes, or (b) arranging to have sold on Participant’s behalf through such means as the Company may determine in its sole discretion (whether through a broker or otherwise) a sufficient number of Shares that is equal to the amount required to be withheld. The Company shall arrange to sell or withhold a whole number of shares to satisfy the minimum tax withholding obligation, and to the extent that any tax obligation balance remains, such amount shall be withheld from your following payroll cycle.

3. No Stockholder Rights.    Unless and until such time as Shares are issued in settlement of vested RSUs, Participant shall have no ownership of the Shares allocated to the RSUs and shall have no right to dividends or to vote such Shares.

4. Dividend Equivalents.    Dividends, if any (whether in cash or Shares), shall not be credited to Participant.

5. No Transfer.    The RSUs and any interest therein shall not be sold, assigned, transferred, pledged, hypothecated, or otherwise disposed of.

6. Termination.    If Participant’s service Terminates for any reason, all unvested RSUs shall be forfeited to the Company forthwith, and all rights of Participant to such RSUs shall immediately terminate. In case of any dispute as to whether Termination has occurred, the Committee shall have sole discretion to determine whether such Termination has occurred and the effective date of such Termination.

7. U.S. Tax Consequences.    Participant acknowledges that there will be tax consequences upon settlement of the RSUs or disposition of the Shares, if any, received in connection therewith, and Participant should consult a tax adviser regarding Participant’s tax obligations prior to such settlement or disposition. Upon vesting of the RSU, Participant will include in income the fair market value of the Shares subject to the RSU. The included amount will be treated as ordinary income by Participant and will be subject to withholding by the Company when required by applicable law. Upon disposition of the Shares, any subsequent increase or decrease in value will be treated as short-term or long-term capital gain or loss, depending on whether the Shares are held for more than one year from the date of settlement. Further, an RSU may be considered a deferral of compensation that may be subject to Section 409A of the Code. Section 409A of the Code imposes special rules to the timing of making and effecting certain amendments of this RSU with respect to distribution of any deferred compensation. You should consult your personal tax advisor for more information on the actual and potential tax consequences of this RSU.

No modification of or amendment to this Agreement, nor any waiver of any rights under this Agreement, shall be effective unless in writing and signed by the parties to this Agreement.

10.
