Pursuant to the Grant Notice to which this Restricted Stock Unit Award Agreement (this “Agreement”) is attached, the Company has granted to Participant the right to receive the number of RSUs set forth in the Grant Notice.


1.             Defined Terms. Capitalized terms not specifically defined herein shall have the meanings specified in the Plan and the Grant Notice.


2.             Incorporation of Terms of Plan. The award of RSUs hereunder is subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement and the Plan, which is incorporated herein by reference. In the event of any inconsistency between the Plan and this Agreement, the terms of the Plan shall control.


3.             Award of Restricted Stock Units.


(a)     Award. In consideration of Participant’s past and/or continued service to the Company or any Subsidiary and for other good and valuable consideration, the Company hereby grants to Participant the right to receive the number of RSUs set forth in the Grant Notice, subject to all of the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, the Grant Notice and the Plan. Prior to actual issuance of any Shares, the RSUs represent an unsecured obligation of the Company, payable only from the general assets of the Company.


(b)     Vesting. The RSUs shall vest in accordance with the Vesting Schedule set forth in the Grant Notice. Unless and until the RSUs have vested in accordance with the Vesting Schedule, Participant will have no right to any distribution with respect to such RSUs. If Participant ceases to be a Service Provider prior to the vesting of all of the RSUs, any unvested RSUs will terminate automatically without any further action by the Company and be forfeited without further notice and at no cost to the Company. Qualifying as a Service Provider for only a portion of a vesting period, even if a substantial portion, will not entitle Participant to any proportionate vesting of the RSUs allocated to that vesting period or avoid or mitigate the forfeiture of RSUs that will occur upon the cessation of Participant being a Service Provider prior to vesting in those RSUs.


(c)     Distribution. Shares shall be distributed to Participant (or in the event of Participant’s death, to his or her estate) with respect to such Participant’s vested RSUs within thirty (30) days following the vesting date of the RSUs as specified in the Vesting Schedule set forth in the Grant Notice, subject to the terms and provisions of the Plan and this Agreement. Unless otherwise determined by the Administrator, all distributions shall be made by the Company in the form of whole shares of Common Stock. In lieu of any fractional share of Common Stock, the Company shall make a cash payment to Participant equal to the Fair Market Value of such fractional share on the date the RSUs are settled pursuant to this Section 3(c). Neither the time nor form of distribution of Common Stock with respect to the RSUs may be changed.


4.             Conditions to Issuance of Shares. The Company shall not be required to issue or deliver any Shares issuable upon the vesting of the RSUs prior to the fulfillment of all of the following conditions: (a) the admission of the Shares to listing on all stock exchanges on which such Shares are then listed, (b) the completion of any registration or other qualification of the Shares under any state or federal law or under rulings or regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission or other governmental regulatory body, which the Administrator shall, in its sole and absolute discretion, deem necessary and advisable, and (c) the obtaining of any approval or other clearance from any state or federal governmental agency that the Administrator shall, in its absolute discretion, determine to be necessary or advisable. Recipients of RSUs hereunder will comply with the Company’s procedures for tracking and administration thereof, including with respect to the issuance and holding of such RSUs.

7.             Rights as Stockholder. Neither Participant nor any person claiming under or through Participant shall have any of the rights or privileges of a stockholder of the Company in respect of any Shares issuable hereunder unless and until certificates representing such Shares (which may be in uncertificated form) will have been issued and recorded on the books and records of the Company or its transfer agents or registrars, and delivered to Participant (including through electronic delivery to a brokerage account). After such issuance, recordation and delivery, Participant shall have all the rights of a stockholder of the Company, including with respect to the right to vote the Shares and the right to receive any cash or share dividends or other distributions paid to or made with respect to the Shares.
