ARTICLE I
INTRODUCTION
Section 1.1    Purpose. The purpose of the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco Executive Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) is to attract and retain key executives of the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco (the “Bank”) and to motivate and focus their efforts on achieving the Bank’s business plan and accomplish its goals and objectives while maintaining the safety and soundness of the Bank. The Plan is a cash-based incentive plan that provides award opportunities based on achievement of performance goals.
Section 1.2    Effective Date. The “Effective Date” of the Plan is January 1, 2017.
Section 1.3    Supplements. The provisions of the Plan may be modified by supplements to the Plan that are approved by the Board or a committee delegated by the Board. The terms and provisions of each supplement are a part of the Plan and supersede any other provisions of the Plan to the extent necessary to eliminate any inconsistencies between the supplement and any other Plan provisions.
ARTICLE II
ELIGIBILITY AND PARTICIPATION
Section 2.1    Eligibility. Any senior executive officer (specifically, the President and CEO, each Executive Vice President as of April 15, 2019, and eachany Senior Vice President who was eligible as of December 31, 2018,) of the Bank, hired/employed as a regular full-time employee before October 1st of the calendar year, will become a “Participant” in the Plan on a prorated basis for that calendar year, excluding the SeniorExecutive Vice President and Director of Internal Audit, who, subject to approval of the Board, participates in the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco Executive Internal Audit Incentive Plan.

ARTICLE III
AWARDS
Section 3.1    Awards. No later than the beginning of each Performance Period, the Board will establish Award Levels (as defined in Section 3.1(b) for eligible Participants. For each Performance Period, the Award Levels established by the Board will be set forth in Appendices to the Plan, each of which shall be incorporated into the Plan. As described in this Article, Awards may be Annual Awards (as defined in subsection 3.3(a)), Deferred Awards (as defined in subsection 3.3(b)), or Gap Year Awards (as defined in subsection 3.4(a)). Each Award will be equal to a percentage of the Participant’s annual Compensation. “Compensation” means the Participant’s average annual base salary as of February 1 offor the first calendar year in each Performance Period; provided, however, for the Performance Period commencing January 1, 2019, the average will be based on the eleven month-period commencing February 1, 2019.
(a)    Performance Periods. A “Performance Period” is the one-calendar year period over which an Annual Award can be earned and vested pursuant to subsection 3.3(a). A “Deferral Performance Period” is the three-calendar year period over which a Deferred Award can be vested pursuant to subsection 3.3(b). A Deferral Performance Period begins on the January 1st immediately following the applicable Performance Period.
(b)    Award Levels. Participants are eligible to receive Awards for each Performance Period, subject to deferral of fifty percent (50%) of the Annual Award (the Deferred Award) over the Deferral Performance Period.
(c)    Final Award. The “Final Award” is the amount of an earned and vested Annual Award, Deferred Award, and Gap Year Award, as may be adjusted based upon the level at which the Performance Goals and Qualifiers have been achieved, that is ultimately paid to a Participant under the Plan. The amount of a Final Award may be modified at the Board’s discretion to account for performance that is not captured in the relevant Performance Goals and Qualifiers for the applicable Award. The Board, in its discretion, may also consider Extraordinary Occurrences when assessing performance results and determining Final Awards. “Extraordinary Occurrences” mean those events that, in the opinion and discretion of the Board, are outside the significant influence of the Participant or the Bank and are likely to have a significant unanticipated effect, whether positive or negative, on the Bank’s operating and/or financial results.

Section 3.2    Performance Goals and Qualifiers. “Performance Goals and Qualifiers” are the factors established by the Board for each Performance Period, Deferral Performance Period and Gap Year Performance Period, as set forth in the applicable Appendices to the Plan, which are taken into consideration in determining the amount of an Annual Award, Deferred Award or Gap Year Award. The Board may adjust the Performance Goals and Qualifiers for a Performance Period, Deferral Performance Period or Gap Year Performance Period to ensure the purposes of the Plan are served.

(a)    Establishment of Performance Goals and Qualifiers. Performance Goals and Qualifiers for Performance Periods, Deferral Performance Periods and the Gap Year Performance Period commencing on and after January 1, 2017, will be communicated to Participants following approval by the Board.
(b)    Achievement Levels. Four achievement levels will be defined for each Performance Goal in determining how much of an Award is earned.
(i)    Threshold (75% of Target). Minimum level of performance that must be achieved for awards to be paid.
(ii)    Meets (Target – 100% of Plan). Performance that is expected under the Bank’s Plan.
(iii)    Exceeds (125% of Target). An optimistic achievement level that exceeds expected performance.
(iv)    Far Exceeds (150% of Target). The most optimistic achievement level that far exceeds expected performance.
(c)    Interpolation. Achievement levels between Threshold – Target; Target – Exceeds; and, Exceeds – Far Exceeds will be interpolated in a manner as determined at the sole discretion of the Board.
(d)    Considerations in Establishing Performance Goals and Qualifiers. In determining appropriate Performance Goals and Qualifiers and the relative weight of each Performance Goal, the Board will:
(i)    Balance risk and financial results in a manner that does not encourage Participants to expose the Bank to imprudent risks;
(ii)    Make such determination in a manner designed to ensure that a Participant’s overall compensation is balanced and not excessive in amount and that the Annual Awards, Deferred Awards and Gap Year Awards are consistent with the Bank’s policies regarding such compensation arrangements; and
(iii)    Monitor the success of the Performance Goals and Qualifiers and weighting established in prior years, alone and in combination with other incentive compensation awarded to the same Participants, and make appropriate adjustments in future calendar years as needed so that payments appropriately incentivize Participants, appropriately reflect risk and align with regulatory guidance.

Section 3.3    Vesting of Awards for Participants.
(a)    Vesting of Annual Awards. For each Performance Period, except the Gap Performance Period, fifty percent (50%) of an Annual Award to a Participant will become vested on the last day of the Performance Period, provided the Board determines the following requirements are met (an “Annual Award”):
(i)    The applicable Performance Goals and Qualifiers for the Performance Period are achieved;
(ii)    The Participant received a satisfactory (at least meets expectations) performance rating for the Performance Period; and,
(iii)    The Participant is actively employed on the last day of the Performance Period, except as otherwise provided in subsection 3.5(b) or 3.5(c) or Section 3.6.
(b)    Vesting of Deferred Awards. The remaining fifty percent (50%) of an Award to a Participant will become vested on the last day of the Deferral Performance Period, provided the Board determines that the following requirements are met (a “Deferred Award”):
(i)    The applicable Qualifiers for the Deferral Performance Period are satisfied;
(ii)    The Participant received a satisfactory (at least meets expectations) performance rating for the Deferral Performance Period, and
(iii)    The Participant is actively employed on the last day of the Deferral Performance Period, unless otherwise provided in subsection 3.5(b) or 3.5(c) or Section 3.6.
(c)    Calculation of Awards. The amount of Awards to Participants will be determined at the sole discretion of the Board in accordance with the applicable Appendix to the Plan. If the Qualifiers are achieved an annual compounding interest rate of 6% is applied to Deferred Awards.
Section 3.4    Gap Year Awards for Participants.
(a)    Background. The Board has determined it is appropriate to establish a Gap Year Award for Participants for long-term performance during the calendar years 2017 through 2019 (a “Gap Year Award”) to address a gap in payment of deferred incentive compensation during calendar year 2020 which arises as a result of the discontinuation in 2017 of the Executive Performance Unit Plan (the “Long-Term Incentive Plan”) and the implementation of this Plan.
(b)    Vesting of Gap Year Award. A Gap Year Award will become vested over a three-year period beginning on January 1, 2017 and ending on December 31, 2019 (the “Gap Year Performance Period”) to the extent the Board determines that:

3/29/2019
4
 



(i)    The Performance Goals and Qualifiers for the Gap Year Performance Period, as set forth in the applicable Appendix to the Plan, are satisfied;
(ii)    The Participant received a satisfactory (meets expectations) performance rating for the Gap Year Performance Period, and
(iii)    The Participant is actively employed on the last day of the Gap Year Performance Period, except as otherwise provided in subsection 3.5(b) or 3.5(c) or Section 3.6.
(c)    Calculation of Awards. The amount of Gap Year Awards will be calculated in the sole discretion of the Board in accordance with the applicable Appendix to the Plan.

Section 3.5    Effect of Termination of Employment.
(a)    In General. If a Participant incurs a Termination of Employment for any reason other than a reason set forth in subsection 3.5(b) or 3.5(c) or Section 3.6, the Participant’s unvested Awards will be forfeited effective as of the date of such Termination of Employment and the Bank will have no obligation to pay the Participant any portion of such forfeited, unvested Award amount.
(b)    Termination Due to Death or Disability.
(i)    Notwithstanding the provisions of Sections 3.3 and 3.4 and subsection 3.5(a), if a Participant incurs a Termination of Employment due to death or Disability during a Deferral Performance Period, then the Participant’s Deferred Awards will be treated as vested and shall be paid pursuant to Section 3.7(a)(i).
(ii)    Notwithstanding the provisions of Sections 3.3 and 3.4 and subsection 3.5(a), if a Participant incurs a Termination of Employment during a Performance Period or Gap Year Performance Period due to death or Disability, any Annual Award or Gap Year Award which has not been vested for the year of the Participant’s Termination of Employment due to death or Disability, will be treated as vested for the portion of the Performance Period or Gap Year Performance Period during which the Participant was employed based on the assumption the Bank would have achieved the Performance Goals and Qualifiers at the Target achievement level for the Performance Period or Gap Year Performance Period.
(c)    Termination Due to Other Events.
(i)    Subject to Section 3.7(a)(ii), but notwithstanding the provisions of Sections 3.3 and 3.4 and subsection 3.5(a), if a Participant incurs a Termination of Employment during a Performance Period, Deferral Performance Period or Gap Year Performance Period due to:

(E)    a substantial job modification resulting in the incumbent being, in the judgment of the Bank, unqualified for or unable to perform the revised job;
then the relevant pro rata portion of an Annual Award or Gap Year Award will be treated as vested for the portion of the Performance Period or Gap Year Performance Period during which the Participant was employed to the extent determined by the Board that the Performance Goals and Qualifiers for the Performance Period or Gap Year Performance Period are satisfied and a Deferred Award will be treated as fully vested as of the date of Termination of Employment. Any Payment of any Award pursuant to this Section 3.5(c) will be made according to the normal scheduled date under Section 3.7(b).
(d)    Definitions.
(i)    “Cause” means (A) continued failure of a Participant to perform his or her duties with the Bank (other than any such failure resulting from Disability), (B) personal dishonesty, incompetence, willful misconduct, breach of fiduciary duty involving personal profit, intentional failure to perform stated duties, or willful violation of any law, rule or regulation (other than -traffic infractions or similar non-violent infractions), or (C) removal of the Participant for cause by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (“FHFA”) or at the direction of the FHFA pursuant to 12 U.S.C. 1422b(a)(2), or by any successor agency to the FHFA pursuant to a similar statute.

“Good Reason” means a Termination of Employment by a Participant under any of the following circumstances:

3/29/2019
6
 



(A)    a material change in the Participant’s status, position and job title or principal duties and responsibilities as a key employee of the Bank which does not represent a promotion from the Participant’s status and position as in effect as of the date hereof (“Position”);
(B)    the assignment to the Participant of any duties or responsibilities (or removal of any duties or responsibilities), which assignment or removal is materially inconsistent with such Position;
(C)    any removal of the Participant from such Position (including, without limitation, all demotions), except in connection with the termination of the Participant’s employment for Cause or Disability, or as a result of the Participant’s death; or
(D)    any material breach by the Bank of any provisions of this Plan or any agreement under which the Participant provides services to the Bank.
Notwithstanding the foregoing in this Section 3.5(d)(iii), a Participant shall not be considered to have a Termination of Employment for Good Reason unless the Participant provides the Bank with written notice no later than 90 days after the first occurrence of an event listed above and the Bank has a period of 30 days to cure such event.
(iv)    “Reduction in Force” means an involuntary Termination of Employment of a Participant by the Bank in connection with a financial and/or strategic decision by the Bank to reduce the number of Bank employees and not due to the Participant’s performance.

(vi)     “Termination of Employment or Terminates Employment” Participant’s separation from service within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-1(h). Whether a Termination of Employment has occurred is based on whether the facts and circumstances indicate that the Participant and the Bank reasonably anticipated that no further services would be performed after a certain date. A Termination of Employment will not be deemed to have occurred if a Participant continues to provide services to the Bank as an employee, independent contractor or otherwise, and if the Participant is providing such services at an annual rate that is fifty percent (50%) or more of the services rendered, on average, during the immediate preceding 36 months with the Bank (or if less, such lesser period); provided, however, that a Termination of Employment will be deemed to have occurred if a Participant’s service with the Bank is reduced to an annual rate that is equal to or less than twenty percent (20%) of the services rendered, on average, during the immediately preceding 36 months with the Bank (or if less, such lesser period). In addition to the foregoing, the employment of a Participant shall not be deemed to be terminated while the Participant is on military leave, sick leave or other bona fide leave of absence if the period of such leave does not exceed six

3/29/2019

(6) months, or if longer, so long as the Participant’s right to reemployment with the Bank is provided by either statute or contract. If the period of leave exceeds six (6) months and the Participant’s right to reemployment is not provided by either statute or contract, then the Participant is deemed to have a Termination of Employment on the first day immediately following such six-month period.

Section 3.6    Effect of Change in Control.
(a)    Notwithstanding the provisions of Sections 3.3 and 3.5, if a Change in Control of the Bank occurs prior to the date of vesting of an Award, then an Annual Award or Gap Year Award will be paid on a pro-rated basis based on the assumption the Bank would have achieved the Performance Goals and Qualifiers at the Target achievement level for the Performance Period and/or the Gap Year Performance Period, while any Deferred Award which has not otherwise become vested as of the date of the Change in Control will be treated as one hundred percent (100%) vested effective as of the date of the Change in Control.

(iii)    The purchase by the Bank or transfer to the Bank of all or substantially all of the business or assets of another Federal Home Loan Bank; or

(a)    Payments Related to Termination of Employment. The following provisions apply to Final Awards payable as a result of a Termination of Employment.
(i)    In the event of a Termination of Employment due to death or Disability, one hundred percent (100%) of a Final Award will be paid in a single sum within 74 days of the date of Termination of Employment.
(ii)    In the event of a Termination of Employment Due to Other Events, payment of a Final Award will be made in a single sum within 74 days following the end of the Performance Period, Deferral Performance Period or Gap Year Performance Period, as applicable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of an elimination of an individual job or position, a reduction in force or department reorganization, or a substantial job modification resulting in the incumbent being unqualified for or unable to perform the revised job, a Participant must execute the severance agreement offered by the Bank in order to be eligible to receive payment.
(b)    Payments Not Related to a Termination of Employment. Final Awards which become vested for reasons other than a Termination of Employment will be paid in a single sum within 74 days following the end of the Performance Period, Deferral Performance Period or Gap Year Performance Period, as applicable.
(c)    Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section, Final Awards will be paid upon approval by the Board. However, in the event of a Change in Control, payment of a Final Award will be made in a single sum on the date on which the Change in Control occurs; provided however, if a Participant is eligible for Retirement as of the date of a Change in Control, then the Final Award of such Participant shall be made no sooner than the earliest to occur of (i) a change in the ownership or effective control of the Bank, or in the ownership of a substantial portion of the assets of the Bank, as defined under Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-3(i)(5); (ii) the Participant’s Termination of Employment; or (iii) the payment date under Section 3.7(b) of this Plan.
Section 3.8    Reduction or Forfeiture of Awards.
(a)    By resolution, the Board may reduce or eliminate any Award not yet paid, if the Board finds that a serious, material safety-soundness problem, or a serious, material risk-management deficiency exists at the Bank, or if: (i) errors or omissions result in material revisions to the Bank’s financial results, information submitted to a regulatory or a reporting agency, or information used to determine incentive compensation payouts; (ii) information submitted to a regulatory or a reporting agency is untimely; or, (iii) the Bank does not make appropriate progress, as determined by the Board, in the timely remediation of examination, monitoring, or other supervisory findings and matters requiring attention.
(b)    If during the Deferral Performance Period actual losses or other measures or aspects of performance related to the Performance Period or Deferral Performance Period are realized which would have caused a reduction in amount of the Final Award calculated for the Performance Period or Deferral Performance

3/29/2019
9
 



Period, then the remaining amount of the Final Award to be paid at the end of the Deferral Performance Period may be reduced to reflect this additional information.
(c)    Notwithstanding any other provision of the Plan, if a Participant breaches the terms of a Non-Solicitation Agreement, all of his/her unpaid vested and unvested Awards may be forfeited as of the effective date of the Board’s determination that such breach has occurred, which effective date shall be no sooner than the expiration of the cure period under Section 3.8(e) below. Any future payments for a vested Award will cease and the Bank will have no further obligation to make such payments.
(d)    Notwithstanding any other provision of the Plan, if during the most recent examination of the Bank by the FHFA, the FHFA identified an unsafe or unsound practice or condition that is material to the financial operation of the Bank within the Participant’s area(s) of responsibility and such unsafe or unsound practice or condition is not subsequently resolved to the satisfaction of the Board, then upon expiration of the cure period under Section 3.8(e) below all or a portion of a Participant’s vested and unvested Awards may be forfeited as determined in the sole discretion of the Board. Any future payments for a vested Award will cease and the Bank will have no further obligation to make such payments.
(e)    Notwithstanding any provision of this Section 3.8 to the contrary, prior to any reduction, elimination or forfeiture of any Participant Award, the applicable Participant shall be given notice of the determination under this Section 3.8 to reduce, eliminate or forfeit the Award and such Participant shall have a period of no less than 30 days to present information contrary to such decision or information showing that the issue or event causing the reduction, elimination or forfeiture has been cured to the satisfaction of the Board.

ARTICLE VII
MISCELLANEOUS
Section 7.1    Governing Law. Except to the extent superseded by laws of the United States, the laws of California will be controlling in all matters relating to the Plan without regard to the choice of law principles therein.
The Plan shall be construed in a manner that is consistent and compliant with, or exempt from, Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”) and any regulations promulgated thereunder. Any provision that is noncompliant with Section 409A of the Code is void or deemed amended to comply with Section 409A of the Code. The Plan is to be construed as a totally discretionary plan. This Plan shall be administered and interpreted to maximize the short-term deferral exemption to Code Section 409A, and a Participant shall not, directly or indirectly, designate the taxable year of an award payment under this Plan. The portion of any payment under this Plan that is paid within the short-term deferral period (within the meaning of Code Section 409A) shall be treated as a short-term deferral and not aggregated with other payments. To the extent applicable, any payment dates or events provided for in this Plan shall be deemed to incorporate any “grace periods” within the meaning of Code Section 409A. The Bank does not guarantee or warrant the tax consequences of the Plan, and the Participants shall in all cases be liable for any taxes due with respect to the Plan.
Section 7.2    Headings and Gender. The headings and subheadings in the Plan have been inserted for convenience of reference only and will not affect the construction of the Plan provisions. In any necessary construction, the masculine will include the feminine and the singular the plural, and vice versa.
Section 7.3    Spendthrift Clause. No benefit or interest available under the Plan will be subject in any manner to anticipation, alienation, sale, transfer, assignment, pledge, encumbrance or attachment by creditors of a Participant, either voluntarily or involuntarily.
Section 7.4    Counterparts. This Plan may be executed in any number of counterparts, each one constituting but one and the same instrument, and may be sufficiently evidenced by any one counterpart.
Section 7.5    No Enlargement of Employment Rights. Nothing contained in the Plan is intended to alter a Participant’s “at will” employment and is not to be construed as a contract of employment between the Bank and any person, nor may the Plan be deemed to give any person the right to be retained in the employ of the Bank or limit the right of the Bank to employ or discharge any person with or without cause.

Section 7.6    Limitations on Liability. The individual members of the Board will, in accordance with the Bank’s by-laws, be indemnified and held harmless by the Bank with respect to any alleged breach of responsibilities performed or to be performed hereunder. In addition, notwithstanding any other provision of the Plan, neither the Bank nor any individual acting as an employee or agent of the Bank will be liable to a Participant for any claim, loss, liability or expense incurred in connection with the Plan, except when the same has been affirmatively determined by a court order or by the affirmative and binding determination of an arbitrator, to be due to the gross negligence or willful misconduct of that person.
Section 7.7    Incapacity of Participant. If any person entitled to receive a distribution under the Plan is physically or mentally incapable of personally receiving and giving a valid receipt for any payment due (unless a prior claim for the distribution has been made by a duly qualified guardian or other legal representative), then, unless and until a claim for the distribution has been made by a duly appointed guardian or other legal representative of the person, the distribution may be made to any other individual or institution then contributing toward or providing for the care and maintenance of the person. Any payment made for the benefit of the person under this Section will be a payment for the account of such person and a complete discharge of any liability of the Bank and the Plan.
Section 7.8    Evidence. Evidence required of anyone under the Plan may be by certificate, affidavit, document or other information which the person relying on the evidence considers pertinent and reliable, and signed, made or presented by the proper party or parties.
Section 7.9    Action by Bank. Any action required of or permitted by the Bank under the Plan will be by resolution of the Board or by a person or persons authorized by resolution of the Board.
Section 7.10    Severability. In the event any provisions of the Plan are held to be illegal or invalid for any reason, the illegality or invalidity will not affect the remaining parts of the Plan, and the Plan will be construed and endorsed as if the illegal or invalid provisions had never been contained in the Plan.
Section 7.11    Information to be Furnished by a Participant. A Participant, or any other person entitled to benefits under the Plan, must furnish the Bank with any and all documents, evidence, data or other information the Bank considers necessary or desirable for the purpose of overseeing and administering the Plan. Benefit payments under the Plan are conditioned on a Participant (or other person who is entitled to benefits) furnishing full, true and complete data, evidence or other information to the Bank, and on the prompt execution of any document reasonably related to the administration of the Plan requested by the Bank.
Section 7.12    Attorneys’ Fees. If any action is commenced to enforce the provisions of the Plan, payment of attorneys’ fees will be governed by the terms set forth in the “Agreement to Arbitrate” entered into between the Bank and the Participant.

Section 7.13    Binding on Successors. The Plan will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Bank and its successors and assigns, and the successors, assigns, designees and estates of a Participant. The Plan will also be binding upon and inure to the benefit of any successor organization succeeding to substantially all of the assets and business of the Bank, but nothing in the Plan will preclude the Bank from merging or consolidating into or with, or transferring all or substantially all of its assets to, another organization which assumes the Plan and all obligations of the Bank hereunder. The Bank agrees that it will make appropriate provision for the preservation of a Participant’s rights under the Plan in any agreement or plan which it may enter into to effect any merger, consolidation, reorganization or transfer of assets. Upon such a merger, consolidation, reorganization or transfer of assets and assumption of Plan obligations of the Bank, the term “Bank” will refer to such other organization and the Plan will continue in full force and effect.

WHEREAS, the Bank sponsors the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco Executive Incentive Plan (the “Plan”); and
WHEREAS, as a condition of participation in the Plan, the Bank requires that the Executive agree to the terms and conditions found within this Agreement;
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and of the mutual promises and agreements contained herein and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt, legal adequacy and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:
1.Non-Disclosure; Return of Confidential Information and Other Property.
(a)    Access to Confidential Information. The Executive understands, acknowledges and agrees that during the course of his or her employment with the Bank he or she has gained or will gain information regarding, knowledge of, and familiarity with, the Confidential Information of the Bank (as defined in subsection (c)) that would cause irreparable damage and harm to the Bank if it was disclosed. The Executive understands, acknowledges and agrees that the Confidential Information has substantial economic value because it is not known or readily ascertainable by proper means by others who could obtain economic value from it. The Executive also acknowledges and agrees that the Bank uses reasonable means to maintain the secrecy and confidentiality of the Confidential Information.
(b)    Non-Disclosure. At all times while the Executive is employed by the Bank, and at all times thereafter, the Executive will not (i) directly or indirectly disclose, provide or discuss any Confidential Information with or to any Person (as defined in subsection (d)) other than those directors, officers, employees, representatives and agents of the Bank who need to know such Confidential Information for a proper corporate purpose, and (ii) directly or indirectly use any Confidential Information (A) to compete against the Bank, or (B) for the Executive’s own benefit, or for the benefit of any Person other than the Bank.
(c)    Confidential Information Defined. For purposes of this Agreement, the term “Confidential Information” means any and all:
(i)    materials, records, data, documents, lists, writings and information (in each case, whether in writing, printed, verbal, electronic, computerized or otherwise) (A) relating or referring in any manner to the business, operations, affairs, financial condition, results of operation, cash flow, assets, liabilities, sales, revenues, income, estimates, projections, policies, strategies, techniques, methods, products, developments, suppliers, regulators, members, relationships and/or customers of the Bank that are confidential, proprietary or not otherwise publicly available, in any event not without a breach of this Agreement, or (B) that the Bank has deemed confidential, proprietary, nonpublic or not otherwise publicly available without breaching this Agreement;

Likewise, the Bank agrees not to disparage the Executive or his or her skills or job performance to third parties. However, nothing in this paragraph shall prohibit the Bank or the Executive from testifying truthfully under oath. In addition, Section 2 shall not be deemed to prevent the Executive from making disclosures required or made permissible by applicable statute or regulation. Section 2 shall also not be deemed to prevent the Executive from making disclosure required by agency or court order, to the extent that prior to disclosure, the Executive provides the Bank with timely written notice of order, to the extent such prior notice is not prohibited, so as to allow the Bank to contest the order.
3.    Non-Solicitation. The Executive hereby understands, acknowledges and agrees that, by virtue of his or her position with the Bank, the Executive has and will have advantageous familiarity and personal contacts with the employees of the Bank and has and will have advantageous familiarity with the business, operations and affairs of the Bank.

The Bank’s obligation to pay an award to the Executive pursuant to the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco Incentive Plan will immediately terminate in the event the Executive breaches any of the provisions of Section 1 or 3 and all outstanding awards will be forfeited. Notwithstanding the foregoing:
(a)    the Executive’s covenants set forth in Sections 1 or 3 will continue in full force and effect and be binding upon the Executive;
(b)    the Bank will be entitled to the remedies specified in Section 6; and
(c)    the Bank will be entitled to its damages, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) resulting from or relating to the successful prosecution of the Executive’s breach of any of the provisions of Section 1 or 3.
5.    Survival of Certain Provisions. Upon any termination of the Executive’s employment with the Bank, the Executive and the Bank hereby expressly agree that the provisions of Sections 1, 3, 4 and 6 will continue to be in full force and effect and binding upon the Executive and the Bank in accordance with the applicable respective provisions of such Sections.
6.    Remedies. The Executive agrees that the Bank will suffer irreparable damage and injury and will not have an adequate remedy at law in the event of any actual, threatened or attempted breach by the Executive of any provision of Section 1 or 3. Accordingly, in the event of a threatened, attempted or actual breach by the Executive of any provision of Section 1 or 3, in addition to all other remedies to which the Bank is entitled at law, in equity or otherwise, the Bank may be entitled to a temporary restraining order and a permanent injunction or a decree of specific performance of any provision of Section 1 or 3. The foregoing remedies will not be deemed to be the exclusive rights or remedies of the Bank for any breach of or noncompliance with this Agreement by the Executive but will be in addition to all other rights and remedies available to the Bank at law, in equity or otherwise.
7.    Severability. In case any one or more of the provisions (or any portion thereof) contained herein will, for any reason, be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability will not affect any other provision of this Agreement, but this Agreement will be construed as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision or provisions (or portion thereof) had never been contained herein. If any provision of this Agreement will be determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable because of the provision’s scope, duration or other factor, then such provision will be considered divisible and the court making such determination will have the power to reduce or limit (but not increase or make greater) such scope, duration or other factor or to reform (but not increase or make greater) such provision to make it enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law, and such provision will then be enforceable against the appropriate party hereto in its reformed, reduced or limited form; provided, however, that a provision will be enforceable in its reformed, reduced or limited form only in the particular jurisdiction in which a court of competent jurisdiction makes such determination.
8.    Entire Agreement. This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding of the parties hereto with respect to its subject matter, merges and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings with respect to its subject matter, and may not be waived or modified, in whole or in part, except in writing signed by each of the parties hereto. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement in any instance will be deemed to be a waiver of the same or any other provision in any other instance. The recitals set forth above are incorporated herein by this reference.
9.    Effect and Modification. No statement or promise, except as set forth herein, has been made with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement. No modification or amendment will be effective unless in writing and signed by the Executive and an officer of the Bank (other than the Executive).

10.    Non-Waiver. The Bank’s or the Executive’s failure or refusal to enforce all or any part of, or the Bank’s or the Executive’s waiver of any breach of this Agreement, will not be a waiver of the Bank’s or the Executive’s continuing or subsequent rights under this Agreement, nor will such failure or refusal or waiver have any effect on the subsequent enforceability of this Agreement.
11.    Non-Assignability. This Agreement contemplates that the Executive will personally provide the services described herein, and accordingly, the Executive may not assign the Executive’s rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, in whole or in part, without the prior written consent of the Bank.
12.    Notice.

15.    Effect of Headings. The descriptive headings of the Sections and, where applicable, subsections, of this Agreement are inserted for convenience and identification only and do not constitute a part of this Agreement for purposes of interpretation.
16.    Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original, but all of which collectively will constitute one and the same instrument.
