3.   Lapse of Restrictions.
  a.   Except as set forth in Section 3(b) below, the Restrictions applicable to the Units shall lapse, as long as the Units have not been forfeited as described in Section 2 above, as follows:
  (i)   «Vesting_Schedule» (the “Restriction Period”);
 
  (ii)   If a Change in Control of the Company occurs and the successor corporation (or parent thereof) does not assume this Award or replace it with a comparable award; provided, further, that with respect to any Award that is assumed or replaced, such assumed or replaced awards shall provide that the Restrictions shall lapse for any Participant that is involuntarily terminated (for a reason other than “Cause”) or quits for “Good Reason” within 24 months of the Change in Control.

  (iv)   If the Grantee dies.
  b.   In the case of Involuntary Termination due to a Divestiture or for a reason other than for Serious Misconduct before the expiration of the Restriction Period, if the Units have not been forfeited as described in Section 2 above, then the Restrictions shall lapse on a pro rata basis determined by dividing (i) the number of completed full years of service by the Grantee from the Award Date to the employee’s date of termination by (ii) the total length of the Restriction Period.
 
  c.   “Termination due to a Divestiture” for purposes of this Agreement means if Grantee accepts employment with another company in direct connection with the sale, lease, outsourcing arrangement or any other type of asset transfer or transfer of any portion of a facility or any portion of a discrete organizational unit of Motorola or a Subsidiary, or if Grantee remains employed by a Subsidiary that is sold or whose shares are distributed to the Motorola stockholders in a spin-off or similar transaction (a “Divestiture”).
 
  d.   “Serious Misconduct” for purposes of this Agreement means any misconduct identified as a ground for termination in the Motorola Code of Business Conduct, or the human resources policies, or other written policies or procedures.
 
  e.   If, during the Restriction Period, the Grantee takes a Leave of Absence from Motorola or a Subsidiary, the Units will continue to be subject to this Agreement. If the Restriction Period expires while the Grantee is on a Leave of Absence the Grantee will be entitled to the Units even if the Grantee has not returned to active employment. “Leave of Absence” means an approved leave of absence from Motorola or a Subsidiary that is not a termination of employment, as determined by Motorola.
 
  f.   To the extent the Restrictions lapse under this Section 3 with respect to the Units, they will be free of the terms and conditions of this Award (other than Section 2(c)).
4.   Adjustments. If the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock is changed as a result of a stock split or the like without additional consideration to the Company, the number of Units subject to this Award shall be adjusted to correspond to the change in the outstanding shares of Common Stock.
 
5.   Dividends. No dividends (or dividend equivalents) shall be paid with respect to Units credited to the Grantee’s account.

 


 

6.   Delivery of Certificates or Equivalent. Upon the lapse of Restrictions applicable to the Units, the Company shall, at its election, either (i) deliver to the Grantee a certificate representing a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the number of Units upon which such Restrictions have lapsed, or (ii) establish a brokerage account for the Grantee and credit to that account the number of shares of Common Stock of the Company equal to the number of Units upon which such Restrictions have lapsed plus.
 
7.   Withholding Taxes. The Company is entitled to withhold applicable taxes for the respective tax jurisdiction attributable to this Award or any payment made in connection with the Units. Grantee may satisfy any minimum withholding obligation by electing to have the plan administrator retain shares of Common Stock deliverable in connection with the Units having a Fair Market Value on the date the Restrictions applicable to the Units lapse equal to the amount to be withheld. “Fair Market Value” for this purpose shall be the closing price for a share of Common Stock on the day the Restrictions applicable to the Units lapse as reported for the New York Stock Exchange- Composite Transactions in the Wall Street Journal, Midwest edition.
 
8.   Voting and Other Rights.
  a.   Grantee shall have no rights as a stockholder of the Company in respect of the Units, including the right to vote and to receive cash dividends and other distributions until delivery of certificates representing shares of Common Stock in satisfaction of the Units.
 
  b.   The grant of Units does not confer upon Grantee any right to continue in the employ of the Company or a Subsidiary or to interfere with the right of the Company or a Subsidiary, to terminate Grantee’s employment at any time.
9.   Agreement Following Termination of Employment. Grantee agrees that upon termination of employment with Motorola or a Subsidiary, Grantee will immediately inform Motorola of (a) the identity of any new employer (or the nature of any start-up business or self-employment), (b) Grantee’s new title, and (c) Grantee’s job duties and responsibilities.

By accepting this award, Grantee voluntarily acknowledges and consents to the collection, use, processing and transfer of personal data as described in this paragraph.

11.   Nature of Award. By accepting this Award Agreement, the Grantee acknowledges his or her understanding that the grant of Units under this Award Agreement is completely at the discretion of Motorola, and that Motorola’s decision to make this Award in no way implies that similar awards may be granted in the future or that Grantee has any guarantee of future employment. Nor shall this or any such grant interfere with Grantee’s right or the Company’s right to terminate such employment relationship at any time, with or without cause, to the extent permitted by applicable laws and any enforceable agreement between Grantee and the Company. In addition, the Grantee hereby acknowledges that he or she has entered into employment with Motorola or a Subsidiary upon terms that did not include this Award or similar awards, that his or her decision to continue employment is not dependent on an expectation of this Award or similar awards, and that any amount received under this Award is considered an amount in addition to that which the Grantee expects to be paid for the performance of his or her services. Grantee’s acceptance of this Award is voluntary. The Award is not part of normal or expected compensation for purposes of calculating any severance, resignation, redundancy, end of service payments, bonuses, long-service awards, pension, or retirement benefits or similar payments, notwithstanding any provision of any compensation, insurance agreement or benefit plan to the contrary.

Grantee agrees that any interim or final equitable relief entered by a court of competent jurisdiction, as specified in paragraph 15 below, will, at the request of the Company, be entered on consent and enforced by any such court having jurisdiction over the Grantee. This relief would occur without prejudice to any rights either party may have to appeal from the proceedings that resulted in any grant of such relief.
