AWARD GRANT

(Cash)

Name: [            ]

TARGET LTIP AWARD

You have been granted by EnPro Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) a Target LTIP Award under the Company’s Long-Term Incentive Plan for the three-year performance period 2013 through 2015, comprised of the following:

Target Cash LTIP Award: [            ]

Your award is subject to the terms and conditions of the Long-Term Incentive Plan, as amended (the “Plan Document”). If this award agreement varies from the terms of the Plan Document, the Plan Document will control. Attached as Appendix A is a copy of the Plan Document.

PERFORMANCE GOALS

The amount of Cash LTIP award you earn will depend on the performance of the Company relative to the performance goal for the three-year performance cycle from January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2015 (the “Performance Cycle”). The performance goals with respect to the Cash LTIP award are attached as Appendix B hereto.

The determination of whether the performance goals have been met will be made by the Compensation Committee following the end of the Performance Cycle.

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

 

You will not earn any amount with respect to the Cash LTIP award if the Company’s performance during the 2013-2015 period is below minimum performance.

 

 

If actual performance equals or exceeds minimum performance, the amount you will earn with respect to the Cash LTIP will range from 50% to 300% of your Target Cash LTIP award based on attainment against the performance goal.

 

 

In order to receive any amount with respect to the LTIP Cash award, you must remain employed with the Company through December 31, 2015, except in the case of death, disability or retirement as discussed below. If your employment terminates prior to December 31, 2015 for any reason other than death, disability or retirement, you will forfeit all of the Cash LTIP award.

 

 

The amount of the Cash LTIP award earned at the end of the Performance Cycle, if any, will also be reduced to satisfy applicable withholding taxes and will be paid as soon as administratively practicable after February 15, 2016.


 

If you become totally disabled under the Company’s Long-Term Disability Plan or retire under the Company’s Salaried Pension Plan (or a similar pension plan maintained by a subsidiary that is your employer) during the Performance Cycle, you will receive a pro rata payout at the end of the Performance Cycle, based upon the time portion of the cycle during which you were employed. The actual payout will not occur until after the end of the Performance Cycle, at which time the financial performance for the entire Performance Cycle will be used to determine the size of the award in that event.

 

 

If you die during the Performance Cycle, any beneficiary you have designated by will (or, if you do not so designate a beneficiary or your designated beneficiary fails to survive you, your estate) will receive a pro rata payout based upon the financial results calculated for the portion of the Performance Cycle through the end of the fiscal quarter following your death.

 

 

The performance factors and weightings applicable to your award are determined based upon your position with the Company.

 

 

The Compensation Committee retains the right in its sole discretion to reduce any award which would otherwise be payable, unless there has been a Change in Control, as defined in the Equity Compensation Plan.

 

 

Any income you derive from a payout of the Cash LTIP award will not be considered eligible earnings for Company or subsidiary pension plans, savings plans, profit sharing plans or other benefit plans.

APPENDIX A

ENPRO INDUSTRIES, INC.

LONG-TERM INCENTIVE PLAN

(2012 AMENDMENT AND RESTATEMENT)

PURPOSE

The EnPro Industries, Inc. Long-Term Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) was established effective as of January 1, 2003 (the “Effective Date”) to provide long-term incentive compensation to key employees who are in a position to influence the performance of EnPro Industries, Inc. (the “Company”), and thereby enhance shareholder value over time. The Plan provides a significant additional financial opportunity and complements other parts of the Company’s total compensation program for key employees.

ELIGIBILITY AND PERFORMANCE PERIODS

The Committee (as defined in the “Plan Administration” section of the Plan) will determine which employees of the Company are eligible to participate in the Plan from time to time. Participants will be selected within 90 days after the beginning of each multi-year performance cycle (“Performance Period”). Each Performance Period will be of two or more years duration as determined by the Committee and will commence on January 1 of the first year of the Performance Period. A new Performance Period will commence each year unless the Committee determines otherwise.

TARGET AWARDS

At the time a Participant is selected for participation in the Plan for a Performance Period, the Committee will assign the Participant a Target LTIP Award to be earned if the Company’s target performance levels are met for the Performance Period (the “Target LTIP Award”). The Target LTIP Award may be expressed as a dollar amount, a number of Performance Shares under the Company’s Equity Compensation Plan, or a combination of a dollar amount and a number of Performance Shares. Any portion of the Target LTIP Award made in the form of Performance Shares will be evidenced by a Performance Shares award agreement consistent with the provisions of the Equity Compensation Plan.

MAXIMUM AND THRESHOLD AWARDS

At the time a Participant is selected for participation in the Plan for a Performance Period, the Participant will be assigned maximum and threshold award levels, expressed as a percentage of the Target LTIP Award. Maximum award level represents the maximum percentage of the Target LTIP Award that may be paid to a Participant for a Performance Period based on performance above target performance levels. Threshold award level represents the minimum percentage of the Target LTIP Award that may be paid to a Participant for a Performance Period based on performance below target performance levels. Performance below the threshold performance award level will earn no incentive payments.

Under no circumstances will any Participant earn an award for a Performance Period expressed in dollars exceeding $2,500,000. In addition, any award of Performance Shares hereunder shall be subject to the individual award limit applicable under the Equity Compensation Plan.

 

A-1

A-3


PERFORMANCE GOALS

 

   

The Committee will designate, within 90 days of the beginning of each Performance Period:

 

   

The performance measures and calculation methods to be used for the Performance Period;

 

   

A schedule for each performance measure relating achievement levels for the performance measure to incentive award levels as a percentage of Participants’ Target LTIP Awards; and

 

   

The relative weightings of the performance measures for the Performance Period.

The performance goals established by the Committee for a Performance Period are intended to satisfy the “objective compensation formula” requirements of Treasury Regulations Section 1.162-27(e)(2). To the degree consistent with Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code, or any successor section thereto (the “Code”), the Committee may adjust, modify or amend the above criteria, either in establishing any performance measure or in determining the extent to which any performance measure has been achieved. In particular, the Committee shall have the authority to make equitable adjustments in the criteria where necessary (i) in response to changes in applicable laws or regulations, (ii) to account for items of gain, loss, or expense that are related to the disposal (or acquisition) of a business or change in accounting principles that was not anticipated at the time an award was made, (iii) to account for adjustments in expense due to re-measurement of pension benefits, (iv) to remove the effect of charges for asbestos, (v) to account for restructurings, discontinued operations, and any other items deemed by the Committee to be non-recurring in nature or otherwise not reflective of operating performance that were not anticipated at the time an award was made, and (vi) to reflect other unusual, non-recurring, or unexpected items similar in nature to the foregoing as determined in good faith by the Committee consistent with the principles set forth in section 162(m) of the Code and the regulations thereunder. Such adjustments may be made with respect to the performance of any subsidiary, division, or operating unit, as applicable, shall be made in a consistent manner from year to year, and shall be made in accordance with the objectives of the Plan and the requirements of Section 162(m) of the Code.

PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATION

As soon as practicable following the end of each Performance Period and prior to any award payments for the Performance Period, the Committee will certify the Company’s performance with respect to each performance measure used for that Performance Period.

AWARD CALCULATION AND PAYMENT

For each Performance Period, individual incentive awards will be calculated and paid to each Participant who is still employed with the Company (subject to the special provisions below for employees who terminate employment due to death, disability or retirement) as soon as practicable following the Committee’s certification of performance for the Performance Period. The amount of a Participant’s incentive award to be paid based on each individual performance measure will be calculated based on the following formula:

 

A-4


Participant’s

Target LTIP Award

   ×    Percentage of target award to be paid based on performance measure results    ×    Relative weighting of performance measure    =    Amount of incentive award based on performance measure results

The incentive amounts to be paid to the Participant based on each performance measure will be summed to arrive at the Participant’s total incentive award payment for the Performance Period.

Payments from the Plan to a Participant, if any, will be made in cash (less any amount necessary to satisfy applicable withholding taxes); provided, however, that (i) if any portion of the award is in the form of Performance Shares, the applicable Performance Shares award agreement will specify whether the award will be settled in cash, shares of the Company’s common stock or a combination of cash and stock; and (ii) at the Participant’s election, receipt of all or part of an award may be deferred under the terms of the EnPro Industries, Inc. Deferred Compensation Plan (or other deferred compensation plan of the Company).

TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT DUE TO DEATH, DISABILITY, RETIREMENT

If a Participant becomes totally disabled under the Company’s Long-Term Disability Plan, or retires (or is deemed to retire) under the Company’s Salaried Retirement Plan during a Performance Period, the Participant will receive a pro rata payout at the end of the Performance Period, based upon the time portion of the Performance Period during which he or she was employed. The actual payout will not occur until after the end of the Performance Period, at which time the financial performance for the entire Performance Period will be used to determine the amount of the award prior to proration.

If a Participant dies during a Performance Period, the Participant will receive a pro rata payout based upon financial results calculated for the portion of the Performance Period through the end of the fiscal quarter following the Participant’s death.

OTHER TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT

If a Participant’s employment terminates prior to the end of a Performance Period for any reason (whether voluntary or involuntary) other than death, disability or retirement, the Participant will forfeit all rights to compensation under the Plan, unless the Committee determines otherwise.

NEW HIRES OR PROMOTIONS INTO ELIGIBLE POSITIONS

Participants will become eligible for participation in the Plan at their new position level beginning with the Performance Period which begins on the January 1 immediately following their hire or promotion date. No new performance awards or adjustments to awards for Performance Periods that commenced prior to a Participant’s hire or promotion date will be made.

PAYMENT UPON CHANGE IN CONTROL

Anything to the contrary notwithstanding, if a Change in Control occurs prior to the end of a Performance Period, within five days following the occurrence of the Change in Control each Participant will receive a pro rata payout of the Participant’s award for that Performance Period based upon the portion of the Performance Period completed through the date of the

 

A-5


Change in Control and the performance results calculated for that period (the “Interim LTIP Payment”). The Participant shall also remain entitled to a payout upon completion of the Performance Period based on performance results for the entire Performance Period, such payout to be offset be the amount of the Interim LTIP Payment (if any); provided, however, that the Participant will not be required to refund to the Company, or have offset against any other payment due to the Participant from or on behalf of the Company, in the event the amount of the Interim LTIP Payment exceeds the amount of the payout upon completion of the Performance Period.

For purposes of the Plan, a “Change in Control” shall mean:

 

  (i) The acquisition by any individual, entity or group (within the meaning of Section 13(d)(3) or 14(d)(2) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)), of beneficial ownership (within the meaning of Rule 13d-3 promulgated under the Exchange Act) of 20% or more of either (A) the then outstanding shares of common stock of the Company (the “Outstanding Company Common Stock”) or (B) the combined voting power of the then outstanding voting securities of the Company entitled to vote generally in the election of directors (the “Outstanding Company Voting Securities”); provided, however, that the following acquisitions shall not constitute a Change in Control: (A) any acquisition directly from the Company (other than by exercise of a conversion privilege), (B) any acquisition by the Company or any of its subsidiaries, (C) any acquisition by any employee benefit plan (or related trust) sponsored or maintained by the Company or any of its subsidiaries or (D) any acquisition by any company with respect to which, following such acquisition, more than 70% of, respectively, the then outstanding shares of common stock of such company and the combined voting power of the then outstanding voting securities of such company entitled to vote generally in the election of directors is then beneficially owned, directly or indirectly, by all or substantially all of the individuals and entities who were the beneficial owners, respectively, of the Outstanding Company Common Stock and Outstanding Company Voting Securities immediately prior to such acquisition in substantially the same proportions as their ownership, solely in their capacity as shareholders of the Company, immediately prior to such acquisition, of the Outstanding Company Common Stock and Outstanding Company Voting Securities, as the case may be; or

 

  (ii) individuals who, as of the Effective Date, constitute the Board of Directors (the “Incumbent Board”) cease for any reason to constitute at least a majority of the Board of Directors; provided, however, that any individual becoming a director subsequent to the Effective Date whose election, or nomination for election by the Company’s shareholders, was approved by a vote of at least a majority of the directors then comprising the Incumbent Board shall be considered as though such individual were a member of the Incumbent Board, but excluding, for this purpose, any such individual whose initial assumption of office occurs as a result of either an actual or threatened election contest; or

 

  (iii)

consummation of a reorganization, merger or consolidation, in each case, with respect to which all or substantially all of the individuals and entities who were the beneficial owners, respectively, of the Outstanding Company Common Stock and Outstanding Company Voting Securities immediately prior to such reorganization, merger or consolidation, do not, following such reorganization, merger or consolidation, beneficially own, directly or indirectly, solely in their capacity as shareholders of the Company, more than 70% of, respectively, the then outstanding shares of common stock and the combined voting power of the then outstanding voting securities entitled to vote generally in the election of directors, as the case

 

A-6


  may be, of the company resulting from such reorganization, merger or consolidation in substantially the same proportions as their ownership, immediately prior to such reorganization, merger or consolidation of the Outstanding Company Common Stock and Outstanding Company Voting Securities, as the case may be; or

 

  (iv) consummation of (A) a complete liquidation or dissolution of the Company or (B) a sale or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, other than to a company, with respect to which following such sale or other disposition, more than 70% of, respectively, the then outstanding shares of common stock of such company and the combined voting power of the then outstanding voting securities of such company entitled to vote generally in the election of directors is then beneficially owned, directly or indirectly, by all or substantially all of the individuals and entities, solely in their capacity as shareholders of the Company, who were the beneficial owners, respectively, of the Outstanding Company Common Stock and Outstanding Company Voting Securities immediately prior to such sale or other disposition in substantially the same proportion as their ownership, immediately prior to such sale or other disposition, of the Outstanding Company Common Stock and Outstanding Company Voting Securities, as the case may be.

PLAN ADMINISTRATION

The Plan will be administered by the Compensation and Human Resources Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (or a subcommittee of that committee consisting only of those members of that committee who are “outside directors” within the meaning of Section 162(m) of the Internal revenue Code if any members of the committee are not “outside directors”) (the “Committee”). In administering the Plan, the Committee shall be empowered to interpret the provisions of the Plan and to perform and exercise all of the duties and powers granted to it under the terms of the Plan by action of a majority of its members in office from time to time. The Committee is empowered to set pre-established performance targets, measure the results and determine the amounts payable according to the Formula. While the Committee may not increase the amounts payable under the Plan formula for a Performance Period, it retains discretionary authority to reduce the amount of compensation that would otherwise be payable to the Participants if the goals are attained. The Committee may also adopt such rules and regulations for the administration of the Plan as are consistent with the terms hereof and shall keep adequate records of its proceedings and acts. All interpretations and decisions made (both as to law and fact) and other action taken by the Committee with respect to the Plan shall be conclusive and binding upon all parties having or claiming to have an interest under the Plan. Not in limitation of the foregoing, the Committee shall have the discretion to decide any factual or interpretative issues that may arise in connection with its administration of the Plan (including without limitation any determination as to claims for benefits hereunder), and the Committee’s exercise of such discretion shall be conclusive and binding on all affected parties as long as it is not arbitrary or capricious.

MISCELLANEOUS

(i) Amendment and Termination. The Board of Directors of the Company may amend, modify, or terminate the Plan at any time, provided that no amendment, modification or termination of the Plan shall reduce the amount payable to a Participant under the Plan as of the date of such amendment, modification or termination.

(ii) Shareholder Approval. No amounts shall be payable hereunder unless the material terms of the Plan are first approved by the shareholders of the Company consistent with the requirements of Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code. In accordance with Section 162(m)(4)(C)(ii) of the Internal Revenue Code, the continued effectiveness of the Plan is subject to its approval by the shareholders of the Company at such other times as required by Section 162(m)(4)(C)(ii).

 

A-7


(iii) Coordination With Other Company Benefit Plans. Any income participants derive from Plan payouts will not be considered eligible earnings for Company or subsidiary pension plans, savings plans, profit sharing plans or any other benefit plans.

(iv) Participant’s Rights. A Participant’s rights and interests under the Plan may not be assigned or transferred by the Participant. To the extent the Participant acquires a right to receive payments from the Company under the Plan, such right shall be no greater than the right of any unsecured general creditor of the Company. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to create a trust of any kind or any fiduciary relationship between the Company and the Participant. Designation as a Participant in the Plan for a Performance Period shall not entitle or be deemed to entitle the Participant to be designated as a Participant for any subsequent Performance Periods or to continued employment with the Company.

(v) Applicable Law. The Plan shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of North Carolina, except to the extent such laws are preempted by the laws of the United States of America.

 

A-8


APPENDIX B

For the 2013-2015 Performance Cycle, the Compensation Committee selected Growth in Equity Value over Cost of Capital as the performance goal. Growth in Equity Value over Cost of Capital is a measure of the Company’s compound annual percentage growth rate over the Performance Cycle in its equity value per share (an amount determined pursuant to a proprietary formula based on a multiple of the Company’s adjusted EBITDA plus cash minus debt with adjustments to account for acquisitions, with such amount divided by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding on a diluted basis during the Performance Cycle). The target level for the growth in equity value is established by the Compensation Committee based on an assumed cost of equity capital based on an assumed “risk-free” rate plus a selected premium. For the 2013-2015 Performance Cycle, the Compensation Committee has selected a premium of 5.5% at the target level, with the assumed “risk-free” rate equal to the average over the Performance Cycle of the percentage yield on 10-year U.S. treasury bonds (the average to be calculated from monthly yield data published by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (www.federalreserve.gov/releases/h15/data.htm)).

The threshold level has been set by the Compensation Committee at 50% of the target level and the maximum level has been set at 170% of the target level. The payout percentage is 50% of the award opportunity if performance is at the threshold level, 100% of the award opportunity if performance is at the target level, and 300% of the award opportunity if performance is at the maximum level, with the payout percentage for performance between the threshold level and the target level, or between the target level and the maximum level, being interpolated on a linear basis.

Determination of Growth in Equity Value over Cost of Capital shall be in accordance with the method for calculation approved by the Compensation Committee at its February 5, 2013 meeting and shall be subject to equitable adjustment where necessary (i) in response to changes in applicable laws or regulations, (ii) to account for items of gain, loss, or expense that are related to the disposal (or acquisition) of a business or change in accounting principles that was not anticipated at the time this award was made, (iii) to account for adjustments in expense due to re-measurement of pension benefits, (iv) to account for restructurings, discontinued operations, and any other items deemed by the Compensation Committee to be non-recurring in nature or otherwise not reflective of operating performance that were not anticipated at the time this award was made, and (v) to reflect other unusual, non-recurring, or unexpected items similar in nature to the foregoing, in each case as determined in good faith by the Compensation Committee consistent with the principles set forth in section 162(m) of the Internal Code and the regulations thereunder.
