{EMPNAME}

{EMPNUM}

We are pleased to advise you (the “Participant”) that Analog Devices, Inc., a Massachusetts corporation (the “Company”), has granted to the Participant that number of Performance Restricted Stock Units (“Performance RSUs”) set forth below, subject to the terms and conditions of the Analog Devices, Inc. Amended and Restated 2006 Stock Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) and this Performance Restricted Stock Unit Agreement, including Appendix A, which includes additional performance-based vesting conditions, and Appendix B, which includes any applicable country-specific provisions (this agreement, together with Appendix A and Appendix B, the “Agreement”). The grant of Performance RSUs reflects the Company’s confidence in the Participant’s commitment and contributions to the success and continued growth of the Company. All terms not defined in this Agreement shall have the meaning set forth in the Plan.
1.
Performance Restricted Stock Unit.
Subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan and this Agreement, the Company has granted to the Participant that number of Performance RSUs (the “Award”) effective on the Date of Grant set forth below:
Date of Grant:     {GRANTDATE}
Number of Performance RSUs (“Initial Grant Number”):    {PERFSHARESGRANTED}
Vesting Date:     {PERFVESTDATE}
Each one (1) Performance RSU shall, if and when it vests in accordance with this Agreement, automatically convert into one (1) share of common stock, US$0.16 2/3 par value, of the Company (“Common Stock”) issuable as provided below. The Performance RSUs are subject to the vesting provisions set forth in Section 2 (including any performance-based vesting conditions set forth in Appendix A), the restrictions on transfer set forth in Section 3, and the right of the Company to retain Shares (as defined below) pursuant to Section 7.
2.
Vesting and Conversion.
(a)
Subject to the terms of the Plan and this Agreement, the Performance RSUs shall vest in accordance with the vesting conditions set forth in Section 1 and the performance-based vesting conditions set forth in Appendix A. For purposes of this Agreement, Performance RSUs that have not vested as of the Vesting Date in accordance with this Section 2(a) and Appendix A are referred to as “Unvested Performance RSUs.” The shares of Common Stock that are issuable upon the vesting and conversion of the Performance RSUs are referred to in this Agreement as “Shares.” As soon as administratively practicable after the issuance of any Shares upon the vesting and conversion of Performance RSUs, and subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Agreement, the Company shall deliver or cause to be delivered evidence (which may include a book entry by the Company’s transfer agent) of the Shares so issued in the name of the Participant to the brokerage firm designated by the Company to maintain the brokerage account established for the Participant or the Participant’s heirs, in the case of Section 2(c). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall not be obligated to issue Shares to or in the name of the Participant upon the vesting and conversion of any Performance RSUs unless the issuance of such Shares shall comply with all relevant provisions of law and other legal requirements including, without limitation, any applicable securities laws and the requirements of any stock exchange upon which shares of Common Stock may then be listed.
(b)
In the event the Participant’s employment with the Company or the Employer (as defined in Section 2(e)) is terminated either by the Participant, the Company, or the Employer for any reason or no reason (other than due to death or Disability), then in each such case, all of the Unvested Performance RSUs as of the date of termination shall terminate and be cancelled immediately and automatically and the Participant shall have no further rights with respect to such Unvested Performance RSUs.
(c)
As set forth in Appendix A, in the event of the Participant’s death prior to the end of the Performance Period, the Unvested Performance RSUs shall vest immediately upon death with respect to the Initial Grant Number of Shares underlying the Performance RSUs, notwithstanding that the Participant was not employed as of the Vesting Date. In the event of the Participant’s death after the end of the Performance Period, the Unvested Performance RSUs shall vest with respect to the number of Shares underlying the Performance RSUs that would have vested in accordance with Appendix A had the Participant continued employment through the Vesting Date had he or she not died.

VERSION 2/15



(d)
As set forth in Appendix A, in the event the Participant becomes Disabled prior to the end of the Performance Period, the Unvested Performance RSUs shall vest immediately as of the date the Participant is determined to be Disabled with respect to the Initial Grant Number of Shares underlying the Performance RSUs, regardless of whether the Participant terminates employment prior to the Vesting Date. In the event the Participant becomes Disabled after the end of the Performance Period, the Unvested Performance RSUs shall vest with respect to the number of Shares underlying the Performance RSUs that would have vested in accordance with Appendix regardless of whether the Participant continues employment through the Vesting Date. “Disabled” with respect to the Participant means, when and if, as a result of disease, injury or mental disorder, the Participant is incapable of engaging in regular service or occupation with the Company or the Employer (as defined in paragraph e) which has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months, as determined by the Company.
(e)
For purposes of this Agreement, employment shall include being an employee with the Company. Employment shall also include being an employee with any direct or indirect parent or subsidiary of the Company, or any successor to the Company or any such parent or subsidiary of the Company (the “Employer”). Should a Participant transfer employment to become a director, consultant or advisor to the Company or the Employer following the Date of Grant, he or she will still be considered employed for vesting purposes until he or she ceases to provide services to the Company or any direct or indirect parent or subsidiary of the Company, or any successor to the Company or any such parent or subsidiary of the Company.
3.
Restrictions on Transfer.
(a)
The Participant shall not sell, assign, transfer, pledge or otherwise encumber any Performance RSUs, either voluntarily or by operation of law.
(b)
The Company shall not be required (i) to transfer on its books any of the Performance RSUs which have been transferred in violation of any of the provisions set forth herein or (ii) to treat as the owner of such Performance RSUs any transferee to whom such Performance RSUs have been transferred in violation of any of the provisions contained herein.
4.
Not a Shareholder. The Performance RSUs represent an unfunded, unsecured promise by the Company to deliver Shares upon vesting and conversion of the Performance RSUs, and until vesting of the Performance RSUs and issuance of the Shares, the Participant shall not have any of the rights of a shareholder with respect to the Shares underlying the Performance RSUs. For the avoidance of doubt, the Participant shall have no right to receive any dividends and shall have no voting rights with respect to the Shares underlying the Performance RSUs for which the record date is on or before the date on which the Shares underlying the Performance RSUs are issued to the Participant.
5.
Provisions of the Plan. The Performance RSUs and Shares, including the grant and issuance thereof, are subject to the provisions of the Plan. A copy of the Plan prospectus is available on the Company’s Intranet at http://signals.corpnt.analog.com/default.aspx. (From Signals home page, click Knowledge Centers, HR, Employee Stock Programs. The related documents can be found in the right-hand column.) If the Participant is unable to access this information via the Intranet, the Company’s or the Participant’s regional stock plan administrator can provide the Participant with copies.
6.
Withholding Taxes.
(a)
Regardless of any action the Company and/or the Employer, if different, takes with respect to any or all income tax (including U.S. federal, state and local taxes and/or non-U.S. taxes), social insurance, payroll tax, fringe benefits tax, payment on account or other tax-related withholding (“Tax-Related Items”), the Participant acknowledges that the ultimate liability for all Tax-Related Items legally applicable to the Participant is and remains the Participant’s responsibility and may exceed the amount actually withheld by the Company or the Employer. The Participant further acknowledges that the Company and the Employer (i) make no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related Items in connection with any aspect of the Performance RSUs, including the grant of the Performance RSUs, the vesting of the Performance RSUs, the subsequent sale of any Shares acquired pursuant to the Performance RSUs and the receipt of any dividends; and (ii) do not commit to structure the terms of the grant or any aspect of the Performance RSUs to reduce or eliminate the Participant’s liability for Tax-Related Items or achieve any particular tax result. Further, if the Participant becomes subject to Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction between the Date of Grant and the date of any relevant taxable or tax withholding event, as applicable, the Participant acknowledges that the Company and/or the Employer may be required to withhold or account for Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction.
(b)
Prior to any relevant taxable or tax withholding event, as applicable, the Participant will pay or make adequate arrangements satisfactory to the Company to satisfy all Tax-Related Items. In this regard, the Participant authorizes the Company and/or the Employer, or their respective agents, at their discretion, to satisfy the obligations with regard to all Tax-Related Items by one or a combination of the methods set forth below:
(i)
the Company may withhold a sufficient number of whole Shares otherwise issuable upon the vesting of the Performance RSUs that have an aggregate Fair Market Value (as defined under the Plan) sufficient to pay the minimum Tax-Related Items required

2
VERSION 2/15



to be withheld with respect to the Shares. The cash equivalent of the Shares withheld will be used to settle the obligation to withhold the Tax-Related Items (determined by reference to the closing price of the Common Stock on the NASDAQ Global Select Market on the applicable vesting date).
(ii)
the Company may, in its discretion, withhold any amount necessary to pay the Tax-Related Items from the Participant’s salary or other amounts payable to the Participant; or
(iii)
the Company may withhold from proceeds of the sale of Shares either through a voluntary sale or through a mandatory sale arranged by the Company (on the Participant’s behalf pursuant to this authorization).
To avoid negative accounting treatment, the Company may withhold or account for Tax-Related Items by considering applicable minimum statutory withholding amounts or other applicable withholding rates. If the obligation for Tax-Related Items is satisfied by withholding in Shares, for tax purposes, the Participant is deemed to have been issued the full number of Shares subject to the vested Performance RSU, notwithstanding that a number of the Shares are held back solely for the purpose of paying the Tax-Related Items.
In the event the withholding requirements are not satisfied through the withholding of Shares or through the Participant’s salary or other amounts payable to the Participant, no Shares will be issued upon vesting of the Performance RSUs unless and until satisfactory arrangements (as determined by the Compensation Committee of the Board) have been made by the Participant with respect to the payment of any Tax-Related Items which the Company and/or the Employer determine, in each of its sole discretion, must be withheld or collected with respect to such Performance RSUs. No fractional Shares will be withheld or issued pursuant to the grant of the Performance RSUs and the issuance of Shares hereunder. By accepting this grant of Performance RSUs, the Participant expressly consents to the withholding of Shares and/or cash as provided for hereunder. All other Tax-Related Items related to the Performance RSUs and any Shares delivered in payment thereof are the Participant’s sole responsibility.
7.
Option of Company to Deliver Cash. Notwithstanding any of the other provisions of this Agreement, and except as set forth in Appendix B, where share settlement is otherwise prohibited under local law or may present adverse tax consequences to the Participant, at the time the Performance RSUs vest, the Company may elect, in the sole discretion of the Compensation Committee of the Board, to deliver by wire transfer to the Participant in lieu of Shares an equivalent amount of cash (determined by reference to the closing price of the Common Stock on the NASDAQ Global Select Market on the applicable vesting date). If the Company elects to deliver cash to the Participant, the Company is authorized to retain such amount as is sufficient in the opinion of the Company to satisfy the Tax-Related Items withholding obligations of the Company pursuant to Section 6 herein.
8.
Data Privacy. This Section 8 applies if the Participant resides outside the U.S.: The Company hereby notifies the Participant of the following in relation to the Participant’s personal data and the collection, processing and transfer of such data in relation to the grant of the Performance RSUs and the Participant’s participation in the Plan, pursuant to applicable personal data protection laws. The collection, processing and transfer of the Participant’s personal data is necessary for the Company’s administration of the Plan and the Participant’s participation in the Plan, and the Participant’s denial and/or objection to the collection, processing and transfer of personal data may affect the Participant’s ability to participate in the Plan. As such, the Participant voluntarily acknowledges, consents and agrees (where required under applicable law) to the collection, use, processing and transfer of personal data as described herein.
The Company holds certain personal information about the Participant, including the Participant’s name, home address and telephone number, date of birth, social security number or other employee identification number, salary, nationality, job title, any Shares or directorships held in the Company, details of all Performance RSUs or any other entitlement to Shares awarded, canceled, purchased, vested, unvested or outstanding in the Participant’s favor, for the purpose of managing and administering the Plan (“Data”). The Data may be provided by the Participant or collected, where lawful, from third parties, and the Company will process the Data for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Participant’s participation in the Plan. The data processing will take place through electronic and non-electronic means according to logistics and procedures strictly correlated to the purposes for which the Data is collected and with confidentiality and security provisions as set forth by applicable laws and regulations in the Participant’s country of residence. Data processing operations will be performed minimizing the use of personal and identification data when such operations are unnecessary for the processing purposes sought. The Data will be accessible within the Company’s organization only by those persons requiring access for purposes of the implementation, administration and operation of the Plan and for the Participant’s participation in the Plan.
The Company will transfer Data as necessary for the purpose of implementation, administration and management of the Participant’s participation in the Plan, and the Company may further transfer Data to any third parties assisting the Company in the implementation, administration and management of the Plan. These recipients may be located in the United States, the European Economic Area, or elsewhere throughout the world. The Participant hereby authorizes (where required under applicable law) the recipients to receive, possess, use, retain and transfer the Data, in electronic or other form, for purposes of implementing, administering and managing the Participant’s participation in the Plan, including any requisite transfer of such Data as may be required for the administration of the

VERSION 2/15



Plan and/or the subsequent holding of Shares on the Participant’s behalf to a broker or other third party with whom the Participant may elect to deposit any Shares acquired pursuant to the Plan.
The Participant may, at any time, exercise the Participant’s rights provided under applicable personal data protection laws, which may include the right to (a) obtain confirmation as to the existence of the Data, (b) verify the content, origin and accuracy of the Data, (c) request the integration, update, amendment, deletion, or blockage (for breach of applicable laws) of the Data, and (d) to oppose, for legal reasons, the collection, processing or transfer of the Data which is not necessary or required for the implementation, administration and/or operation of the Plan and the Participant’s participation in the Plan. The Participant may seek to exercise these rights by contacting the Participant’s local HR manager.
9.
Repatriation and Other Legal Requirements. The Participant agrees as a condition of the grant of the Performance RSUs, as applicable, to repatriate all payments attributable to the Shares and/or cash acquired under the Plan (including, but not limited to, dividends and any proceeds derived from the sale of the Shares acquired pursuant to the Performance RSUs) in accordance with all foreign exchange rules and regulations applicable to the Participant. In addition, the Participant also agrees to take any and all actions, and consent to any and all actions taken by the Company and its subsidiaries, as may be required to allow the Company and its subsidiaries to comply with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to the Participant. Finally, the Participant agrees to take any and all actions as may be required to comply with the Participant’s personal legal and tax obligations under all laws, rules and regulations applicable to the Participant.
10.
Miscellaneous.
(a)
No Rights to Employment. The grant of the Performance RSUs shall not confer upon the Participant any right to continue in the employ of the Company or the Employer, nor limit in any way the right of the Company or the Employer to terminate the Participant’s employment at any time. Except in the event of disability or termination of employment due to death, the vesting of the Performance RSUs pursuant to Section 2 and Appendix A, is earned only by satisfaction of the performance-based vesting conditions and continuing service as an employee at the will of the Company or the Employer through the Vesting Date (not through the act of being hired or engaged or being granted the Performance RSUs hereunder).
(b)
Discretionary Nature. The Participant acknowledges and agrees that the Plan is discretionary in nature and may be amended, cancelled, or terminated by the Company at any time, to the extend permitted under the Plan. The Participant’s participation in the Plan is voluntary. The grant of the Performance RSUs under the Plan is a one-time benefit and does not create any contractual or other right to receive a grant of Performance RSUs or any other award under the Plan or other benefits in lieu thereof in the future. Future grants, if any, will be at the sole discretion of the Company, including, but not limited to, the form and timing of any grant, the number of Shares subject to the grant, and the vesting provisions. Any amendment, modification or termination of the Plan shall not constitute a change or impairment of the terms and conditions of the Participant’s employment with the Company or the Employer. The Performance RSUs and income from such Performance RSUs shall not be included in any calculation of severance, resignation, redundancy, end of service payments, bonuses, long-service awards, pension, or retirement benefits or similar payments.
(c)
Exclusion from Termination Indemnities and Other Benefits. This Section 10(c) applies if the Participant resides outside the U.S.: The value of the Performance RSUs and any other awards granted under the Plan is an extraordinary item of compensation outside the scope of the Participant’s employment with the Company or the Employer (and the Participant’s employment contract, if any). Any grant under the Plan, including the grant of the Performance RSUs and the income and value of same, is not part of normal or expected compensation. Further, the Performance RSUs and the Shares are not intended to replace any pension rights or compensation.
(d)
No Entitlement. This Section 10(d) applies if the Participant resides outside the U.S.: In consideration of the grant of Performance RSUs, no claim or entitlement to compensation or damages shall arise from forfeiture of the Performance RSUs resulting from termination of the Participant’s employment with the Company or the Employer (regardless of the reason for such termination and whether or not later to be found invalid or in breach of employment laws in the jurisdiction where the Participant is employed or the terms of the Participant’s employment contract, if any) and the Participant irrevocably releases the Company from any such claim that may arise; if, notwithstanding the foregoing, any such claim is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to have arisen, the Participant shall be deemed irrevocably to have waived the Participant’s entitlement to pursue such claim.
(e)
Exchange Rates. This Section 10(e) applies if the Participant resides outside the U.S.: The Participant acknowledges and agrees that neither the Company nor the Employer shall be liable for any foreign exchange rate fluctuation between the Participant’s local currency and the United States Dollar that may affect the value of the Performance RSUs or of any amounts due to the Participant pursuant to the vesting and settlement of the Performance RSUs or the subsequent sale of any Shares.
(f)
Future Value of Shares. The future value of the underlying Shares is unknown, indeterminable, and cannot be predicted with certainty.

Performance-Based Vesting Terms. Except as provided in the following sentence, the Participant shall vest on the Vesting Date in the number of Performance RSUs, if any, that the Compensation Committee of the Board shall determine to be vested based on the determination of the certified level of attainment of the Performance Parameters, provided the Participant continues to provide services to the Company or Employer or respective successor through the Vesting Date.

5.
Performance Parameters. The Performance Parameters are based on the comparison of the TSR (as defined below) of the Company relative to the median TSR of the Peer Group (as defined below) during the Performance Period and are equal to 100% plus or minus two times the difference between the Company’s TSR and the median Peer Group TSR. The number of Performance RSUs that shall vest shall be equal to a number of Performance RSUs that is between 0% and 200% of the Initial Grant Number, up to a maximum of 100% of the Initial Grant Number if the Company’s TSR is negative. Attainment among Performance Parameters is subject to interpolation on a linear basis.

APPENDIX A - 2
VERSION 2/15

APPENDIX B TO
AMENDED AND RESTATED 2006 STOCK INCENTIVE PLAN
PERFORMANCE RESTRICTED STOCK UNIT AGREEMENT




This Appendix B includes additional terms and conditions that govern the Performance RSUs granted to the Participant if the Participant resides in one of the countries listed herein. These terms and conditions are in addition to, or, if so indicated, in place of, the terms and conditions set forth in the Agreement. Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Appendix B shall have the meanings set forth in the Plan and/or the Agreement.

This Appendix B also includes certain issues of which the Participant should be aware with respect to his or her participation in the Plan. The information is based on the securities, exchange control, income tax and other laws in effect in the respective countries as of February 2015. Such laws are often complex and change frequently. As a result, the Company strongly recommends that the Participant not rely on the information noted herein as the only source of information relating to the consequences of participation in the Plan because the information may be out of date when the Performance RSUs vest or Shares acquired under the Plan subsequently are sold.

In addition, the information is general in nature and may not apply to the Participant’s particular situation, and the Company is not in a position to assure the Participant of any particular result. Therefore, the Participant is advised to seek appropriate professional advice as to how the relevant laws in the Participant’s country may apply to his or her situation.

Finally, the Participant understands that if he or she is a citizen or resident of a country other than the one in which the Participant is currently working, transfers employment after the Date of Grant, or is considered a resident of another country for local law purposes, the information contained herein may not apply to the Participant, and the Company shall, in its discretion, determine to what extent the terms and conditions contained herein shall apply.



IRELAND

Exclusion from Termination Indemnities and Other Benefits. This provision supplements Section 10(b) of the Agreement:
By accepting the Performance RSUs, the Participant acknowledges, understands, and agrees that the benefits received under the Plan will not be taken into account for any redundancy or unfair dismissal claim.

Director Notification.

Manner of Payment. This provision replaces Section 7 of the Agreement:

Notwithstanding any discretion in the Plan or the Agreement to the contrary, upon vesting of the Performance RSUs, Shares will be issued to the Participant. In no event will the Award be paid to Participant in the form of cash.

accomplish the transfer of the Employer NICs to the Participant. The Participant further agrees to execute such other joint elections as may be required between the Participant and any successor to the Company and/or the Employer. If the Participant does not enter into a Joint Election, no Shares shall be issued to the Participant without any liability to the Company and/or the Employer. The Participant further agrees that the Company and/or the Employer may collect the Employer NICs from the Participant by any of the means set forth in Section 6 of the Agreement.

If the Participant has signed a Joint Election in the past with respect to an RSU award granted to him or her by the Company and that Joint Election applies to all grants made under the Plan, the Participant need not sign another Joint Election in connection with this Performance RSU grant.
