EFFECT OF TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT. You must be employed by CryoLife or one of its Subsidiaries or Affiliates on the applicable vesting date to be entitled to the vesting of your Stock Award on such date. If you cease to be employed by any of CryoLife, its Subsidiaries or Affiliates for any reason, (including, without limitation, by reason of death, disability or retirement), then the portion of your Stock Award which has not vested as of the date of termination of employment shall automatically be forfeited and cancelled as of the date of such termination of employment.

STOCK AWARD SHARE CERTIFICATES. Certificates representing the shares of Common Stock to be issued pursuant to the Stock Award shall be issued in your name and shall be held by CryoLife until the Stock Award is vested or forfeited as provided herein. Upon vesting of your Stock Award, CryoLife shall promptly deliver to you a certificate or certificates representing the shares as to which the Stock Award has vested free of the restrictions described in the following section.

RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO STOCK AWARD PRIOR TO VESTING. You may not transfer your Stock Award or the shares to be issued hereunder prior to vesting. Once this Stock Award vests, you will receive transferable certificates representing the vested portion. Prior to vesting, you are entitled to all other rights as a shareholder with respect to the shares underlying the Stock Award, including the right to vote such shares and to receive dividends and other distributions, if any, payable with respect to such shares after the Grant Date.

WITHHOLDING. Whenever CryoLife proposes, or is required, to distribute shares to you or pay you dividends with respect to the unvested portion of your Stock Award, CryoLife may either: (a) require you to pay to Cryolife an amount sufficient to satisfy any local, state, Federal and foreign income tax, employment tax and insurance withholding requirements prior to the delivery of any payment or Stock certificate owing to you pursuant to the Stock Award; or, in its discretion, (b) reduce the number of shares to be delivered to you by that number of shares of the Stock Award sufficient to satisfy all or a portion of such tax withholding requirements, based on the fair market value of the Stock Award as determined under the Plan.

All notices delivered pursuant to this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be (i) delivered by hand, (ii) mailed by United States certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, or (iii) sent by an internationally recognized courier which maintains evidence of delivery and receipt.
