For each FCF Performance Period, any portion of the FCF Performance Award that could have been earned in accordance with the provisions of Exhibit B that is not earned as of the last day of the applicable FCF Performance Period, as determined by the Committee (or its designee), shall be immediately forfeited.

3.    Restrictions.

4.     Termination of Service; Disability

(a) Termination of Service for Cause. Upon the Participant’s termination of service with the Company and its Subsidiaries for Cause prior to the TSR Vesting Date or the FCF Vesting Date, the unvested portion, if any, of the Participant’s Performance Award shall be forfeited as of the date of such termination of service.

(b) Termination of Service on Account of Death.

The vested Performance Award (determined in accordance with the foregoing and including any portion of the FCF Performance Award that was earned prior to the Participant’s death in accordance with Exhibit B for any completed FCF Performance Period) shall be settled in shares of Company Stock for the benefit of the Participant’s estate no later than the later to occur of the end of the calendar year in which the Participant’s death occurs and the fifteenth day of the third calendar month following the Participant’s death.

(c) Termination of Service on Account of Voluntary Retirement with Consent of Company. If the Participant voluntarily Retires with the consent of the Company prior to the TSR Vesting Date or the FCF Vesting Date, the Participant’s Performance Award shall continue to be eligible to vest in accordance with the performance-based vesting conditions set forth on Exhibit A and Exhibit B, as applicable, regardless of such termination of service.

(d) Disability. If the Participant incurs a Disability that also constitutes a “disability” within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code prior to the TSR Vesting Date or the FCF Vesting Date, the Participant’s Performance Award shall continue to be eligible to vest in accordance with the performance-based vesting conditions set forth on Exhibit A and Exhibit B, as applicable, regardless of any subsequent termination of service.

(e) Termination of Service by the Company without Cause or by the Participant for




Good Reason.

(i) Upon termination of the Participant’s service with the Company and its Subsidiaries by the Company or its Subsidiaries without Cause or by the Participant for “good reason” (or any like term as defined under any employment agreement with the Company or a Subsidiary to which the Participant is a party, as modified below) prior to the TSR Vesting Date, a portion of the Participant's TSR Performance Award shall vest based upon achievement of the TSR Performance Criteria (as defined in Exhibit A) measured as of the date of the Participant’s termination of service, multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of full months of the Participant’s service during the TSR Performance Period and the denominator of which is the total number of months in the TSR Performance Period. The vested portion of the TSR Performance Award shall be settled in shares of Company Stock as soon as practicable following the Participant’s termination of service, but no later than the later to occur of (A) the end of the calendar year in which such termination occurs or (B) by the fifteenth day of the third calendar month following such termination. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Committee (or such individual or individuals authorized by the Committee) may, in its discretion, exercise negative discretion to determine payout achievement.  Any portion of the TSR Performance Award that could have been earned in accordance with the provisions of this Section 4(e)(i) that is not earned as of the date of the Participant’s termination of service shall be immediately forfeited on the date of the Participant’s termination of service.

(ii) Upon termination of the Participant’s service with the Company and its Subsidiaries by the Company or its Subsidiaries without Cause or by the Participant for “good reason” (or any like term as defined under any employment agreement with the Company or a Subsidiary to which the Participant is a party, as modified below) prior to the FCF Vesting Date but after the Company’s first approval of estimated Free Cash Flow for the FCF Performance Period in which such termination of service occurs, the Participant's FCF Performance Award in respect of such FCF Performance Period shall vest based upon achievement of the most recently approved estimate of Free Cash Flow for the applicable FCF Performance Period, multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of full months of Participant’s service during the current FCF Performance Period and the denominator of which is twelve (12). If such termination occurs prior to the FCF Vesting Date and prior to the Company’s first approval of estimated Free Cash Flow for the FCF Performance Period in which such termination of service occurs, then the Participant shall not vest in any portion of the FCF Performance Award in respect of the FCF Performance Period in which such termination of service occurs. The vested portion of the FCF Performance Award determined in accordance with the foregoing (plus any portion of the Participant’s FCF Performance Award for which the FCF Performance Criteria (as defined in Exhibit B) has been achieved in respect of any previously completed FCF Performance Period) shall be settled in shares of Company Stock immediately following such termination. Notwithstanding the foregoing the Committee (or such individual or individuals authorized by the Committee) may, in its discretion, exercise negative discretion to determine payout achievement.  Any portion of the FCF Performance Award that could have been earned in accordance with the provisions of this Section 4(e)(ii) that is not earned as of the date of the Participant’s termination of service shall be immediately forfeited on the date of the Participant’s termination of service.

(iii) For the purposes of this Section 4(e), for any Participant who is a party to an employment agreement with the Company or a Subsidiary, “good reason” shall also include the Participant's termination of his or her employment within ninety (90) days following the expiration of the employment term of the Participant's employment agreement under circumstances that would have constituted good reason had such termination occurred during the employment term.

(f) Termination of Service for any Other Reason. Unless otherwise provided in an




individual agreement with the Participant, if the Participant has a termination of service with the Company and its Subsidiaries prior to the TSR Vesting Date or the FCF Vesting Date for any reason other than the reasons enumerated in Subparagraphs (a) through (e) above, the Participant’s Performance Award as of the date of termination of service shall be forfeited.

(a)    if the entire Performance Award is assumed or substituted (within the meaning of the Plan) in connection with such Change in Control, and the Participant incurs a termination of service from the Company and its Subsidiaries by the Company or its Subsidiary without Cause or by the Participant for good reason (or any like term as defined under any employment agreement with the Company or a Subsidiary to which the Participant is a party, as modified by Section 4(e)(iii)) during the 24-month period following such Change in Control, then the restrictions, deferral limitations, payment conditions, and forfeiture conditions applicable to any portion of the Performance Award shall lapse and:

(b)    if any portion of the Performance Award is not assumed or substituted in connection with such Change in Control, then the restrictions, deferral limitations, payment conditions, and forfeiture conditions applicable to any portion of the Performance Award shall lapse and:
(i)     the TSR Performance Award shall be settled in shares of Company Stock immediately prior to the Change in Control based on the greater of (i) actual achievement of TSR Performance Criteria or (ii) target achievement of the TSR Performance Criteria, in either case measured as of the date of the Change in Control, and
(ii)     the FCF Performance Award shall be settled immediately prior to the Change in Control, with the number of shares equal to the sum of (y) the number of shares of Company Stock underlying any portion of the Participant’s FCF Performance Award for which the FCF Performance Criteria has been achieved in respect of any previously completed FCF Performance Period and (z) the number of shares of Company Stock subject to any portion of the FCF Performance Award for any FCF Performance Period not completed multiplied by one (1) or, if greater, a multiple determined based upon achievement of the most recently approved estimate of Free Cash Flow.

(d)    The shareholders of the Company approve a plan of complete liquidation or dissolution of the Company or there is consummated an agreement for the sale or disposition by the Company of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets (it being conclusively presumed that any sale or disposition is a sale or disposition by the Company of all or substantially all of its assets if the consummation of the sale or disposition is contingent upon approval by the Company’s shareholders unless the Board of Directors expressly determines in writing that such approval is required solely by reason of any relationship between the Company and any other Person or an Affiliate of the Company and

The Participant will be entitled to receive a number of shares of Company Stock as of the TSR Vesting Date, equal to a multiple of the TSR Target Performance Award achieved based on achievement of targets relating to Relative TSR (the “TSR Performance Criteria”) as described below for the TSR Performance Period:

Relative TSR

Equal to or above 90th percentile
2

In the event that Relative TSR over the TSR Performance Period is negative, the multiple applicable to the TSR Target Performance Award shall not exceed 1.
If Relative TSR is equal to or above the 50th percentile but below the 90th percentile, the Participant will vest in a number of shares of Company Stock that is the mathematical linear interpolation between the number of shares of Company Stock that would vest at the defined ends of the applicable spectrum. No such interpolation shall occur in the event that Relative TSR is below the 50th percentile or equal to or above the 90th percentile.
The determination of Relative TSR will be made in the sole discretion of the Committee, after the end of the TSR Performance Period once the applicable year-end audit is available. The Committee has discretion to accelerate the vesting of all or a portion of the Participant’s TSR Performance Award based upon the overall performance of the Company and/or the Participant or based upon any change in business conditions, provided that the exercise of such discretion would not cause a TSR Performance Award that would otherwise be deducible as “performance-based” compensation within the meaning of Section 162(m) of the Code to become non-deductible.

2

*Free Cash Flow for each FCF Performance Period associated with the 2017 FCF Performance Award must equal or exceed the following minimum Free Cash Flow: 50% of actual annual adjusted net income for the relevant FCF Performance Period.
If Free Cash Flow is equal to or greater than 94% of Target but below 112% of Target, the Participant will earn a number of shares of Company Stock that is the mathematical linear interpolation between the number of shares of Company Stock that would be earned at the defined ends of the applicable spectrum. No such interpolation shall occur in the event that Free Cash Flow is less than 94% of Target or equal to or greater than 112% of Target.
The determination of Free Cash Flow will be made in the sole discretion of the Committee, after the end of the applicable FCF Performance Period once the applicable year-end audit is available. The Committee may adjust the FCF Performance Award in a manner approved by the Committee at the time of the grant of the FCF Performance Award. The Committee has discretion to increase the portion of the Participant’s FCF Performance Award earned based upon the overall performance of the Company and/or the Participant or based upon any change in business conditions, provided that the exercise of such discretion does not cause an FCF Performance Award that would otherwise be deducible as “performance-based” compensation within the meaning of Section 162(m) of the Code to become non-deductible.
