  (a) Exercisability of Option. No portion of the Option granted to Grantee shall be exercisable by Grantee prior to the time such portion of the Option has vested.


  (b) Manner of Exercise. The vested portion of the Option may be exercised, in whole or in part, on or before the earlier of (i) its lapse and termination under Section 5 or (2) the end of the Option Term stated in the Stock Option Overview, by delivering the Stock Option Exercise Form attached to this Agreement to the Committee or its designee or such other form as the Committee may require from time to time. Such notice shall specify the number of Shares Grantee then desires to purchase and the manner of payment of the Option Price. The Option may be exercised only in multiples of whole Shares and no partial Shares shall be issued.


  (c) Manner of Payment of Option Price. Unless the Committee in its sole discretion allows payment by another means, the Option Price may be paid by any of the following means:


  (i) by a check payable to the order of the Company for an amount in U.S. dollars equal to the Option Price of such Shares;

  (iii) by a broker-assisted “cashless exercise” procedure, as permitted under Federal Reserve Board’s Regulation T, subject to securities law restrictions; or


  (iv) by such other means as the Committee in its sole discretion shall permit.




  (a) No Rights of Shareholder. Within thirty (30) days of the receipt of the Stock Option Exercise Form and the payment of the Option Price for the portion of the Shares as to which the Option is being exercised, and the applicable tax withholding, the Company shall issue certificates for the Common Stock purchased pursuant to this Agreement. Grantee shall not have any of the rights of a shareholder with respect to the Shares that may be issued upon the exercise of the Option until such Shares have been issued to him or her upon the due exercise of the Option.



  (b) Transfer Restrictions as to Shares. Transfer of the Common Stock purchased under the Option shall be subject to the Company’s trading policies and any applicable securities laws or regulations governing transferability of shares of the Company.


  (c) Securities Regulations. No shares of Common Stock shall be issued hereunder until the Company has received all necessary stockholder and regulatory approvals and has taken all necessary steps to assure compliance with federal and state securities laws or has determined to its satisfaction and the satisfaction of its counsel that an exemption from the requirements of the federal and applicable state securities laws are available. To the extent applicable, transactions under the Plan are intended to comply with all applicable conditions of Rule 16b-3 under the U. S. Securities and Exchange Act of 1934. Any ambiguities or inconsistencies in the construction of this Agreement or the Plan shall be interpreted to give effect to such intention. However, to the extent any provision of the Plan or action by the Committee fails to so comply, it shall be deemed null and void to the extent permitted by law and deemed advisable by the Committee in its discretion.


  (d) Fractional Shares. No fractional shares or scrip representing fractional shares of Common Stock shall be issued pursuant to this Agreement. If, upon the issuance of shares of Common Stock under this Agreement, Grantee would be entitled to a fractional share of Common Stock, the number of shares to which Grantee is entitled shall be rounded up to the next higher whole number.


  (e) Beneficiary


  (i) Grantee may, from time to time, designate a beneficiary or beneficiaries (who may be named contingently or successively) to whom any benefit under this Agreement is to be paid in case of Grantee’s death before Grantee has received all benefits to which Grantee would have been entitled under this Agreement. Each designation of beneficiary shall revoke all prior designations by the Grantee, shall be in a form prescribed by the Committee, and will be effective only when received in writing by the Committee. The last valid beneficiary designation received shall be controlling; provided, however, that no beneficiary designation, or change or revocation thereof, shall be effective unless received prior to the Grantee’s death. Attached to this Agreement is the prescribed Designation of Beneficiary Form.



If no valid and effective beneficiary designation exists at the time of the Grantee’s death, or if no designated beneficiary survives the




Grantee, or if the Grantee’s beneficiary designation is invalid under the law, any benefit payable hereunder shall be made to the Grantee’s surviving spouse, if any, or if there is no such surviving spouse, to the executor or administrator of Grantee’s estate. If the Committee is in doubt as to the right of any person to receive payment of any benefit hereunder, the Committee may direct that the amount of such benefit be paid into a court of competent jurisdiction in an interpleader action, and such payment into court shall fully and completely discharge any liability or obligation of the Plan, CACI, the Committee, or the Board of Directors of CACI under this Agreement.



The Option shall lapse and terminate and may no longer be exercised, after any of the following:


  (a) the end of the Option Term;


  (b) as to the vested portion of the Option, sixty (60) days following a termination of employment with CACI and its Affiliates for any reason other than death, Disability or Retirement;


  (c) as to the unvested portion of the Option, (i) termination of employment with CACI and its Affiliates for any reason other than death, Disability or Retirement or (ii) conversion of the Grantee’s employment with CACI or an Affiliate from full-time to part-time status; or


  (d) the date CACI is placed under the jurisdiction of a bankruptcy court or is dissolved or liquidated.




  (a) No Restriction on Company Authority. The award of the Option to Grantee shall not affect in any way the right or power of CACI or its stockholders to make or authorize any or all adjustments, recapitalizations, reorganizations or other changes in CACI’s capital structure or its business, or any merger or consolidation of CACI, or any issue of bonds, debentures, preferred or prior preference stock ahead of or affecting the Common Stock or the rights thereof, or the dissolution or liquidation of CACI, or any sale or transfer of all or any part of its assets or business, or any other corporate act or proceeding, whether of a similar character or otherwise.



  (b) Adjustment of Option. If CACI shall effect a subdivision or consolidation of shares or other capital readjustment, the payment of a stock dividend, or other increase or reduction of the number of shares of the Common Stock outstanding, without receiving compensation therefore in money, services or property, the number, class, and per share price of shares of stock subject to this Option shall be appropriately adjusted in such a manner as to entitle the Grantee to receive upon the exercise of this Option, for the same aggregate consideration, the same total number of shares that the owner of an equal number of outstanding shares of the Common Stock would own as a result of the event requiring the adjustment.


  (c) No Adjustment Otherwise. Except as hereinbefore expressly provided, the issue by CACI of shares of stock of any class, or securities convertible into shares of stock of any class, for cash or property, or for labor or services, either upon direct sale or upon the exercise of rights or warrants to subscribe therefore, or upon conversion of shares or obligations of CACI convertible into such shares or other securities, shall not affect, and no adjustment by reason thereof shall be made with respect to, the number of shares of Common Stock then subject to this Option.


  (d) Transferability of Option. Except as otherwise permitted by the Committee, the Option shall be nontransferable otherwise than by will or the laws of descent and distribution and, during the lifetime of Grantee, the Option may be exercised only by Grantee or, during the period Grantee is under a legal disability, by Grantee’s guardian or legal representative.


  (e) Withholding of Taxes. The Company or any Affiliate of the Company shall have the right to deduct from any cash compensation or any other cash payment of any kind due Grantee the amount of any federal, state or local taxes required by law to be withheld as the result of the exercise of the Option or the sale of Shares issued thereunder. In lieu of such deduction, the Committee may require Grantee to make a cash payment to the Company or any Affiliate of the Company equal to the amount required to be withheld. If Grantee does not make such payment when requested, the Company may refuse to issue any Shares under the Option until arrangements satisfactory to the Committee for such payment have been made.


  (f) Impact on Other Benefits. Any income resulting from the grant or exercise of the Option or the sale of the shares of Common Stock acquired thereunder shall not be includable as compensation or earnings for purposes of any other benefit plan offered by the Company



  (g) Right to Continued Employment. Nothing in the Plan or this Agreement shall be construed as a contract of employment between the Company or any Affiliate of the Company and the Grantee, or as a contractual right of the Grantee to continue in the employ of the Company or any Affiliate of the Company, or as a limitation of the right of the Company or any Affiliate of the Company to discharge the Grantee at any time.


  (h) Governing Law. This Agreement shall be construed and enforced in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of Delaware.


  (i) Arbitration. Any dispute between the parties hereto arising under or relating to this Agreement shall be resolved in accordance with the procedures of the American Arbitration Association. Any resulting hearing shall be held in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The resolution of any dispute achieved through such arbitration shall be binding and enforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction


  (j) Successors. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the successors, assigns and heirs of the respective parties.


  (k) Headings. The headings in the Agreement are for reference purposes only and shall not affect the meaning or interpretation of the Agreement.
