On December 21, 2015, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Shutterfly, Inc.

The Executive Retention Agreements provide for certain severance benefits to the executive in the event his employment is terminated under specified circumstances as defined in the Executive Retention Agreement.

The Term of each Executive Retention Agreement takes effect upon the Effective Date (as defined in the Executive Retention Agreement) and expires upon the earlier of:

 

December 31, 2016; or
termination of the executive’s employment with the Company for a reason other than a Qualifying Termination (as defined in the Executive Retention Agreement).

 

Termination Without Cause or for Good Reason

 

If the executive’s service is terminated by the Company without Cause (as defined in the Executive Retention Agreement) or by the executive for Good Reason (as defined in the Executive Retention Agreement) before December 31, 2016, the executive is entitled to receive the following benefits, subject to a release of claims:

 

Equity: Each of the executive’s then-outstanding equity awards shall accelerate and become vested and exercisable as if the executive had completed an additional twelve (12) months of service as of the Termination Date; subject to achievement of and certification of achievement of all applicable performance criteria if applicable; and
Accrued Compensation and Benefits: any earned but unpaid base salary, any other vested but unpaid cash entitlements, any unreimbursed business expenses incurred by the executive prior to the date of termination and any accrued vacation pay that had been earned but not previously paid; and
Severance:  a lump sum payment equal to his annual base salary for the year during which the termination occurs; and
Continued Employee Benefits:  payment by Company of the executive’s COBRA premiums for continuation of all health, dental and vision plans for the executive and his dependents for 12 months (or cash equivalent).
