Richard Bundy – Non-Qualified Stock Option Agreement (July 9, 2018)


(ii)    Change-in-Control. Notwithstanding the vesting schedule in Section 3(i), in connection with a Change-in-Control, this Option, to the extent it shall not otherwise have become vested and exercisable, shall automatically become fully and immediately vested and exercisable upon the consummation of the Change-in-Control (or immediately prior to the consummation of such Change-in-Control, provided that the consummation subsequently occurs).

(iii)    Death or Disability. Notwithstanding the vesting schedule in Section 3(i), in the event the Employee’s employment is terminated by reason of death or Disability, this Option, to the extent it shall not otherwise have become vested and exercisable, shall automatically become fully and immediately vested and exercisable.

(iv)    Cause. The Option granted pursuant to this Agreement shall terminate immediately upon the termination of Employee’s employment by the Company or any subsidiary for Cause.

4.    Exercise of Option. This Option, to the extent it has vested, may be partially or fully exercised from time to time but shall not be exercisable for a fractional share of Common Stock. This Option may not be exercised after the Expiration Date, and is subject to the limitations on exercise set forth in Section 9. Any exercise of this Option shall be made in writing, using such form as is approved by the Company, duly executed and delivered to the Company and specifying the number of shares as to which the Option is being exercised.

5.    Payment of Option Exercise Price. On the date of any exercise of this Option, the purchase price of the shares as to which this Option is being exercised shall be due and payable and shall be made (i) in cash or by cash equivalent acceptable to the Company; (ii) by delivery of shares of Common Stock held by Employee for more than six (6) months (or such period as the Committee may deem appropriate, for accounting purposes or otherwise), any such shares so delivered to be deemed to have a value per share equal to or greater than the Fair Market Value of the shares on such date; (iii) through an open-market, broker-assisted sales transaction pursuant to which the Company is promptly delivered, following exercise of the Options, the amount of proceeds necessary to satisfy the exercise price; or (iv) if approved by the Committee, by a combination of the methods described above.

6.    Option Nontransferable. This Option is not transferable otherwise than by will or the laws of descent or distribution and, during Employee’s lifetime, is exercisable only by Employee or his or her guardian or legal representative.

7.    Rights as a Stockholder. Employee shall have no rights as a stockholder with respect to any of the shares covered by this Option until the date of issuance to Employee of a stock certificate or other evidence of the issuance for such shares, and no adjustment shall be made for any dividends or other rights if the record date of such dividends or other rights is prior to the date such stock certificate or other evidence of the issuance for such shares is issued.

8.    Restrictions on Issuance of Shares. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, the issuance or delivery of any shares of Common Stock may be postponed for such

2
Richard Bundy – Non-Qualified Stock Option Agreement (July 9, 2018)


period as may be required to comply with applicable requirements of any national securities exchange or any requirements under any law. The Company shall not be obligated to issue or deliver any shares of Common Stock if the issuance or delivery thereof shall constitute a violation of any provision of any law or of any regulation of any governmental authority or any national securities exchange.

9.    Termination of Employment and Exercisability of Option.

(a)    Death or Disability. If Employee’s employment is terminated as a result of Employee’s Disability or death, the Option granted pursuant to this Agreement may be exercised by Employee’s legal representative, heir or devisee, as appropriate, within one year from the date of Disability or death.

(b)    Termination Other than for Cause, Death or Disability. If Employee’s employment is terminated by Employee or the Company for any reason other than Cause, Disability or death, including Retirement, such Option may be exercised within ninety (90) days following the date of termination.

(c)    Breach of Duties or Obligations. Notwithstanding the above provisions of this Section 9, the Company may terminate and cancel this Option if the Company’s Board of Directors or the Committee has determined that Employee has, before or after the termination of employment, materially breached the terms of any agreement between Employee and the Company, including this Agreement, any employment, confidentiality, or severance agreement, violated in a material way any Company policy or engaged in any other act that can be reasonably expected to cause substantial economic or reputational injury to the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Option (or any portion thereof) which is not exercisable on the date of termination of employment shall not be exercisable thereafter without the consent of the Committee.

10.    Restrictive Covenants and Remedies. By accepting the Award, Employee specifically agrees to the restrictive covenants contained in this Section 10 (the “Restrictive Covenants”) and Employee agrees that the Restrictive Covenants and the remedies described below are reasonable and necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the Company Group.

(a)    Confidentiality. In consideration of the Award, Employee acknowledges that the Company Group operates in a competitive environment and has a substantial interest in protecting its Confidential Information, and Employee agrees, during her or his employment with the Company Group and thereafter, to maintain the confidentiality of the Company Group’s Confidential Information and to use such Confidential Information for the exclusive benefit of the Company Group.

(b)    Non-Compete. During Employee’s employment, Employee shall not plan, organize or engage in any business competitive with the Company Group or any product or service marketed or planned for marketing by the Company Group or assist or work with any other person or entity to do so.


3
Richard Bundy – Non-Qualified Stock Option Agreement (July 9, 2018)


During Employee’s employment and for twelve months thereafter (the “Restricted Period”), Employee shall not, without the prior written permission of the Company’s Board, (i) directly or indirectly engage in activities with a Competitor or (ii) own (whether as a shareholder, partner or otherwise, other than as a 1% or less shareholder of a publicly held company) any interest in a Competitor, or (iii) be connected as an officer, director, advisor, consultant, agent or employee or participate in the management of any Competitor. If Employee is interested in pursuing any activity that may violate this provision, the Company encourages Employee to bring that situation to the Company’s attention so that the parties may consider and discuss in advance whether Employee’s proposed activity would violate this provision and/or whether some accommodation might be possible that would allow Employee to engage in such activity while still protecting the Company’s legitimate interests.

(c)    Non-Solicitation. During Employee’s employment and for the Restricted Period, Employee shall not solicit, entice, encourage, or induce (or attempt to do so, directly or indirectly), any employee of the Company to leave or terminate his or her employment with the Company or to establish a relationship with a Competitor. This Section 10(c) shall apply to the then-current employees of the Company Group and any individual who was employed by the Company at any time in the forty-five (45) day period immediately prior to Employee’s last day of employment with the Company Group.

(d)    Non-Interference. During Employee’s employment and for the Restricted Period, Employee shall not solicit, engage, or induce (or attempt to do so, directly or indirectly) any vendor, supplier, sales agent or buying agent of the Company Group to commence work on behalf of, or to establish a relationship with, a Competitor or to sever or materially alter his/her/its relationship with a member of the Company Group. The post-termination obligations of this Section 10(d) shall apply to the vendors, suppliers, sales agents and buying agents of the Company Group as of the date of Employee’s termination and at any time in the one-year period immediately prior to Employee’s termination date.

(e)    Non-Disparagement. During Employee’s employment and for the Restricted Period, Employee promises and agrees not to disparage the Company Group and the Company Group’s officers, directors, employees, products or services.

(f)    Partial Invalidity. If any portion of this Section 10 is determined by an arbitrator or a court to be unenforceable in any respect, it shall be interpreted to be valid to the maximum extent for which it reasonably may be enforced, and enforced as so interpreted, all as determined by such arbitrator or court in such action. Employee acknowledges the uncertainty of the law in this respect and expressly stipulates that this Agreement is to be given the construction that renders its provisions valid and enforceable to the maximum extent (not exceeding its express terms) possible under applicable law.

(g)    Remedy for Breach. Employee agrees that a breach of any of the Restrictive Covenants would cause material and irreparable harm to the Company Group that would be difficult or impossible to measure, and that monetary damages for any such harm would, therefore, be an inadequate remedy. Accordingly, Employee agrees that if Employee breaches any Restrictive

4
Richard Bundy – Non-Qualified Stock Option Agreement (July 9, 2018)


Covenant, the Company Group shall be entitled, in addition to and without limitation upon all other remedies the Company Group may have under this Agreement, at law or otherwise, to obtain injunctive or other appropriate equitable relief, without bond or other security, including but not limited to restraining any such breach through arbitration or litigation. Employee further agrees that the duration of the Restrictive Covenant shall be extended by the same amount of time that Employee is in breach of that Restrictive Covenant.

(h)    Clawback and Recovery.

(x)    In the event that Employee breaches any of the Restrictive Covenants in Sections 10(a) – (e), in addition to its remedies under Section 10(g), the Company, in its sole discretion, may take one or more of the following actions with respect to this Option (and shall, in any event, take all action required by applicable law):

(A)
cause the immediate forfeiture of this Option, to the extent it has not been exercised,

(B)
require Employee to immediately return to the Company any shares issued upon any prior exercise of this Option that, in each case, are still under Employee’s control; and

(C)
require Employee promptly to pay to the Company an amount equal to the Fair Market Value (as measured on the exercise date) of all shares included in this Option that were issued upon any prior exercise of this Option but that are no longer under Employee’s control.

(y)    The Committee shall have sole discretion to determine what constitutes the conduct described in Section 10(a)-(e) above.
        
(z)    In addition to the Company’s rights set forth above, Employee agrees that this Option, and the value of any portion of this Option no longer under his or her control, shall be subject to recovery or other penalties pursuant to (i) any Company clawback policy, as may be adopted or amended from time to time, or (ii) any applicable law, rule or regulation or applicable stock exchange rule, including without limitation, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

(i)    Conflicts with Any Severance Agreement. If the Employee has a severance agreement with the Company which contains provisions similar to those in Section 10 of this Agreement, the provisions in Section 10 of this Agreement shall govern, in case of conflict between such agreements.

13.    Plan Controls. Employee hereby agrees to be bound by all of the terms and provisions of the Plan, including any which may conflict with those contained in this Agreement.

If not so determined by the Employee within one (1) day following exercise, the Company shall withhold shares as described in Section 14(ii) above.

15.    Employment Relationship. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as constituting a commitment, guaranty, agreement, or understanding of any kind or nature that the Company or its subsidiaries shall continue to employ Employee, and this Agreement shall not affect in any way the right of the Company or any of its subsidiaries to terminate the employment of Employee. For purposes of this Agreement, Employee shall be considered to be in the employment of the Company as long as Employee remains an employee of any entity that is part of the Company Group, any successor corporation or a parent or subsidiary corporation of the Company or any successor corporation. Any question as to whether and when there has been a termination of such employment, and the cause of such termination, shall be determined by the Committee, or its delegate, as appropriate, and its determination shall be final.

16.    Committee’s Powers. No provision contained in this Agreement shall in any way terminate, modify or alter, or be construed or interpreted as terminating, modifying or altering any of the powers, rights or authority vested in the Committee or, in a delegate to the extent of such delegation, pursuant to the terms of the Plan or resolutions adopted in furtherance of the Plan, including, without limitation, the right to make certain determinations and elections with respect to the Option.

17.    Binding Effect. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of any successors to the Company and all lawful successors to Employee permitted under the terms of the Plan.

18.    Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Delaware, without reference to the principles of conflicts of laws.

Nothing in this Section 19 shall preclude the Company from pursuing a court action to obtain a temporary restraining order or a preliminary injunction relating to the alleged breach of any of the Restrictive Covenants set forth in Section 10. The agreement to arbitrate shall continue in full force and effect despite the expiration or termination of this Award or Employee’s employment relationship with the Company or any of its Affiliates. Employee and the Company agree that any award rendered by the arbitrator must be in writing and include the findings of fact and conclusions of law upon which it is based, shall be final and binding and that judgment upon the final award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator may grant any remedy or relief that the arbitrator deems just and equitable, including any remedy or relief that would have been available to Employee or the Company or any of its

8
Richard Bundy – Non-Qualified Stock Option Agreement (July 9, 2018)


Affiliates had the matter been heard in court. All expenses of arbitration, including the required travel and other expenses of the arbitrator and any witnesses, and the costs relating to any proof produced at the direction of the arbitrator, shall be borne equally by Employee and the Company unless otherwise mutually agreed or unless the arbitrator directs otherwise in the award. The arbitrator’s compensation shall be borne equally by Employee and the Company unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing or the law provides otherwise.

20.    Headings. Headings are given to the sections and subsections of this Agreement solely as a convenience to facilitate reference. Such headings shall not be deemed in any way material or relevant to the construction or interpretation of this Agreement or any provision hereof or thereof.

21.    Notices.

23.    Consent to Collection/Processing/Transfer of Personal Data. Pursuant to applicable personal data protection laws, the Company hereby notifies Employee of the following in relation to Employee’s personal data and the collection, use, processing and transfer of such data in relation to the Company’s grant of this Award and Employee’s participation in the Plan. The collection, use, processing and transfer of Employee’s personal data is necessary for the Company’s administration of the Plan and Employee’s participation in the Plan, and Employee’s denial and/or objection to the collection, use, processing and transfer of personal data may affect Employee’s participation in the Plan.

The Company will transfer Data within the Company organization as necessary for the purpose of implementation, administration and management of Employee'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.

Exhibit


Exhibit 10.2

TIME-BASED RESTRICTED STOCK AGREEMENT

(Time-Based Vesting)

THIS TIME-BASED RESTRICTED STOCK AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”) is made effective after the close of business on the 9th day of July, 2018 (the “Effective Date”), between Christopher & Banks Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and Richard Bundy (“Employee”), an employee of Company or one of its subsidiaries.
    
1.    Award.

(a)    Shares. Pursuant to the Christopher & Banks Corporation 2018 Stock Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), 75,757 shares (the “Restricted Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Common Stock”), shall be issued as hereinafter provided in Employee’s name, subject to certain restrictions thereon (the “Award”).

(b)    Issuance of Restricted Shares. The Restricted Shares shall be issued upon (i) acceptance of this Agreement by Employee and (ii) satisfaction of the conditions of this Agreement. To accept the Agreement, Employee must sign and return this Agreement to the Company’s Legal Department within thirty (30) days of the Effective Date.

(c)    Plan Controls. Employee hereby agrees to be bound by all of the terms and provisions of the Plan, including any which may conflict with those contained in this Agreement. The Plan is hereby incorporated by reference into this Agreement, and this Agreement is subject in all respects to the terms and conditions of the Plan. In the event of any conflict between this Agreement and the Plan, the terms of the Plan shall control. Except as otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms contained in this Agreement shall have the same meaning as set forth in the Plan.

2.    Restricted Shares. Employee hereby accepts the Restricted Shares when issued and agrees with respect thereto as follows:

(a)    Forfeiture Restrictions. The Restricted Shares may not be sold, assigned, pledged, exchanged, hypothecated or transferred, encumbered or disposed of to the extent then subject to the Forfeiture Restrictions (as hereinafter defined). Except as provided in subsection (b) of this Section 2, in the event of termination of Employee’s employment with the Company or employing subsidiary for any reason, Employee shall, for no consideration, immediately forfeit to the Company all Restricted Shares to the extent then subject to the Forfeiture Restrictions. The prohibition against transfer and the obligation to forfeit and surrender Restricted Shares to the Company upon termination of employment are herein referred to as the “Forfeiture Restrictions.” The Forfeiture Restrictions shall be binding upon and enforceable against any transferee of Restricted Shares.

(b)    Lapse of Forfeiture Restrictions.

(ii)    Change-in-Control, Death or Disability. Notwithstanding the provisions in Section 2(b)(i), the Forfeiture Restrictions shall lapse as to all of the Restricted Shares on the earlier of (x) the occurrence of a Change-in-Control, as defined below (with such Forfeiture Restrictions lapsing immediately prior to the consummation of the Change-in-Control, provided that the consummation subsequently occurs), or (y) the date Employee’s employment with the Company is terminated by reason of death or Disability (as defined below).

(c)    Issuance and Custody of Certificates. The Company shall cause the Restricted Shares to be issued in Employee’s name, either by book-entry registration or issuance of a stock certificate or certificates, pursuant to which Employee shall have voting rights. Employee shall forfeit such voting rights at such time, if at all, as the Restricted Shares are forfeited pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement. While the Restricted Shares remain subject to the Forfeiture Restrictions, Employee shall not have any right to any cash dividends or other cash distributions as are distributed to stockholders of the Company with respect to the Restricted Shares. The Restricted Shares shall be restricted from transfer and shall be subject to an appropriate stop-transfer order. If any certificate is issued, the certificate shall bear a legend evidencing the nature of the Restricted Shares, and the Company may cause the certificate to be delivered upon issuance to the Secretary of the Company or to such other depository as may be designated by the Company as a depository for safekeeping until the forfeiture occurs or the Forfeiture Restrictions lapse pursuant to the terms of the Plan and this Agreement. If a certificate is issued, upon request of the Committee or its delegate, Employee shall deliver to the Company a stock power, endorsed in blank, relating to the Restricted Shares then subject to the Forfeiture Restrictions.
Upon the lapse of the Forfeiture Restrictions without forfeiture, and following payment of the applicable withholding taxes pursuant to Section 3 hereof, the Company shall cause the shares upon which Forfeiture Restrictions lapsed (less any shares withheld to pay taxes), free

Time-Based Restricted Stock Agreement (July 9, 2018)



of the restrictions and/or legend described above, to be delivered, either by book-entry registration (i.e. electronic delivery) or in the form of a certificate or certificates, registered in Employee’s name.
Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, the issuance or delivery of any shares of Common Stock (whether subject to restrictions or unrestricted) may be postponed for such period of time as may be required to comply with the applicable requirements of any national securities exchange or laws. The Company shall not be obligated to issue or deliver any shares of Common Stock if the issuance or delivery thereof shall constitute a violation of any provision of any law or of any regulation of any governmental authority or any national securities exchange.

3.    Income Tax Matters. In order to comply with all applicable federal, state or local income tax laws or regulations, the Company may take such action as it deems appropriate to ensure that all applicable federal, state or local payroll, withholding, income or other taxes, which are the sole and absolute responsibility of Employee, are withheld or collected from Employee. In accordance with the terms of the Plan, and such rules as may be adopted by the Committee under the Plan, Employee may elect to satisfy Employee’s tax withholding obligations arising from the receipt of, or the lapse of restrictions relating to, the Restricted Shares, by (i) delivering cash, a check (bank check, certified check or personal check) or a money order payable to the Company, (ii) having the Company withhold a portion of the Restricted Shares otherwise to be delivered having a Fair Market Value equal to the amount of such taxes, (iii) delivering to the Company shares of Common Stock, other than Restricted Shares, that have been held by Employee for more than six (6) months having a Fair Market Value equal to the amount of such taxes, or (iv) if approved by the Committee, a combination of the methods described above. If the number of shares of Common Stock to be delivered to Employee is not a whole number, then the number of shares of Common Stock shall be rounded down to the nearest whole number. Employee’s election regarding satisfaction of withholding obligations must be made on or before the date that the amount of tax to be withheld is determined. If not so determined by Employee, the Company shall withhold shares as described in Section 3(ii) above.

4.    Employment Relationship. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as constituting a commitment, guaranty, agreement, or understanding of any kind or nature that the Company or its subsidiaries shall continue to employ the Employee, and this Agreement shall not affect in any way the right of the Company or any of its subsidiaries to terminate the employment of the Employee. For purposes of this Agreement, Employee shall be considered to be in the employment of the Company as long as Employee remains an employee of any entity that is part of the Company Group, any successor corporation or a parent or subsidiary corporation of the Company or any successor corporation. Any question as to whether and when there has been a termination of such employment, and the cause of such termination, shall be determined by the Committee, or its delegate, as appropriate, and its determination shall be final.

5.    Restrictive Covenants and Remedies. By accepting the Award, Employee specifically agrees to the restrictive covenants contained in this Section 5 (the “Restrictive Covenants”) and Employee agrees that the Restrictive Covenants and the remedies described below are reasonable and necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the Company Group.

3
Time-Based Restricted Stock Agreement (July 9, 2018)




(a)    Confidentiality. In consideration of the Award, Employee acknowledges that the Company Group operates in a competitive environment and has a substantial interest in protecting its Confidential Information, and Employee agrees, during her or his employment with the Company Group and thereafter, to maintain the confidentiality of the Company Group’s Confidential Information and to use such Confidential Information for the exclusive benefit of the Company Group.

(b)    Non-Compete. During Employee’s employment, Employee shall not plan, organize or engage in any business competitive with the Company Group or any product or service marketed or planned for marketing by the Company Group or assist or work with any other person or entity to do so.

During Employee’s employment and for twelve months thereafter (the “Restricted Period”), Employee shall not, without the prior written permission of the Company’s Board, (i) directly or indirectly engage in activities with a Competitor or (ii) own (whether as a shareholder, partner or otherwise, other than as a 1% or less shareholder of a publicly held company) any interest in a Competitor, or (iii) be connected as an officer, director, advisor, consultant, agent or employee or participate in the management of any Competitor. If Employee is interested in pursuing any activity that may violate this provision, the Company encourages Employee to bring that situation to the Company’s attention so that the parties can consider and discuss in advance whether Employee’s proposed activity would violate this provision and/or whether some accommodation might be possible that would allow Employee to engage in such activity while still protecting the Company’s legitimate interests.

(c)    Non-Solicitation. During Employee’s employment and for the Restricted Period, Employee shall not solicit, entice, encourage, or induce (or attempt to do so, directly or indirectly), any employee of the Company to leave or terminate his or her employment with the Company or to establish a relationship with a Competitor. This Section 5(c) shall apply to the then-current employees of the Company Group and any individual who was employed by the Company at any time in the forty-five (45) day period immediately prior to Employee’s last day of employment with the Company Group.

(d)    Non-Interference. During Employee’s employment and for the Restricted Period, Employee shall not solicit, engage, or induce (or attempt to do so, directly or indirectly) any vendor, supplier, sales agent or buying agent of the Company Group to commence work on behalf of, or to establish a relationship with, a Competitor or to sever or materially alter his/her/its relationship with a member of the Company Group. The post-termination obligations of this Section 5(d) shall apply to the vendors, suppliers, sales agents and buying agents of the Company Group as of the date of Employee’s termination and at any time in the one-year period immediately prior to Employee’s termination date.

(e)    Non-Disparagement. During Employee’s employment and for the Restricted Period, Employee promises and agrees not to disparage the Company Group and the Company Group’s officers, directors, employees, products or services.

Time-Based Restricted Stock Agreement (July 9, 2018)




(f)    Partial Invalidity. If any portion of this Section 5 is determined by an arbitrator or a court to be unenforceable in any respect, it shall be interpreted to be valid to the maximum extent for which it reasonably may be enforced, and enforced as so interpreted, all as determined by such arbitrator or court in such action. Employee acknowledges the uncertainty of the law in this respect and expressly stipulates that this Agreement is to be given the construction that renders its provisions valid and enforceable to the maximum extent (not exceeding its express terms) possible under applicable law.

(g)    Remedy for Breach. Employee agrees that a breach of any of the Restrictive Covenants would cause material and irreparable harm to the Company Group that would be difficult or impossible to measure, and that monetary damages for any such harm would, therefore, be an inadequate remedy. Accordingly, Employee agrees that if Employee breaches any Restrictive Covenant, the Company Group shall be entitled, in addition to and without limitation upon all other remedies the Company Group may have under this Agreement, at law or otherwise, to obtain injunctive or other appropriate equitable relief, without bond or other security, including but not limited to restraining any such breach through arbitration or litigation. Employee further agrees that the duration of the Restrictive Covenant shall be extended by the same amount of time that Employee is in breach of that Restrictive Covenant.

(h)    Clawback and Recovery.

(x)    In the event that Employee breaches any of the Restrictive Covenants in Sections 5(a) – (e), in addition to its Remedies under Section 5(g), the Company, in its sole discretion, may take one or more of the following actions with respect to Employee’s Award (and shall, in any event, take all action required by applicable law):

(A)
cause the immediate forfeiture of the then unvested portion of Employee’s Award,

(B)
require Employee to immediately return to the Company any shares that were previously Restricted Shares that, in each case, are still under Employee’s control; and

(C)
require Employee promptly to pay to the Company an amount equal to the Fair Market Value of all shares included in Employee’s Award that are no longer under Employee’s control (as measured on the vesting date of any such formerly Restricted Shares).

(y)    The Committee shall have sole discretion to determine what constitutes the conduct described in Section 5(a)-(e) above.
        

5
Time-Based Restricted Stock Agreement (July 9, 2018)



(z)    In addition to the Company’s rights set forth above, Employee agrees that the Award, and the value of any portion of that Award no longer under his or her control, shall be subject to recovery or other penalties pursuant to (i) any Company clawback policy, as may be adopted or amended from time to time, or (ii) any applicable law, rule or regulation or applicable stock exchange rule, including without limitation, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

(i)    Conflicts with Any Severance Agreement. If the Employee has a severance agreement with the Company which contains provisions similar to those in Section 5 of this Agreement, the provisions in Section 5 of this Agreement shall govern, in case of conflict between such agreements.

6.    Section 83(b) and Consultation with Tax Advisors. Employee acknowledges that he or she may file an election pursuant to Section 83(b) of the Internal Revenue Code to be taxed currently on the Fair Market Value of any Restricted Shares; provided that such election must be filed with the Internal Revenue Service no later than 30 days after the grant of such Restricted Shares. Employee agrees to seek the advice of her or his own tax advisors as to the advisability of making such a Section 83(b) election, the potential consequences of making such an election, the requirements for making such an election, and the other tax consequences of the Restricted Shares under federal, state, and any other laws that may be applicable.

Employee also acknowledges that the grant, vesting or any payment with respect to the Award, and the sale or other taxable disposition of the shares acquired as a result of the Award may have tax consequences under federal, state, local or international tax laws. Employee further acknowledges that he or she is relying solely on his or her own professional tax and investment advisors with respect to any and all such matters (and is not relying, in any manner, on the Company or any of its employees or representatives). Employee understands and agrees that any and all tax consequences resulting from the Award and its grant, vesting or any payment with respect thereto, and the sale or other taxable disposition of the shares acquired pursuant to the Award, are solely his or her responsibility without any expectation or understanding that the Company or any of its employees or representatives will pay or reimburse him or her for such taxes.

7.    Committee’s Powers. No provision contained in this Agreement shall in any way terminate, modify or alter, or be construed or interpreted as terminating, modifying or altering any of the powers, rights or authority vested in the Committee or, in a delegate to the extent of such delegation, pursuant to the terms of the Plan or resolutions adopted in furtherance of the Plan, including, without limitation, the right to make certain determinations and elections with respect to the Restricted Shares.

8.    Binding Effect. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of any successors to the Company and all lawful successors to Employee permitted under the terms of the Plan.

9.    Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Delaware, without reference to the principles of conflicts of laws.

10.    Arbitration. Employee and the Company agree that any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement (other than Section 5 hereof) or the breach of any of its terms shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration under the Employment Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures of the American Arbitration Association, or other neutral arbitrator and rules as mutually agreed to by Employee and the Company. Nothing in this Section 10 shall preclude the Company from pursuing a court action to obtain a temporary restraining order or a preliminary injunction relating to the alleged breach of any of the Restrictive Covenants set forth in Section 5. The agreement to arbitrate shall continue in full force and effect despite the expiration or termination of this Award or Employee’s employment relationship with the Company or any of its Affiliates. Employee and the Company agree that any award rendered by the arbitrator must be in writing and include the findings of fact and conclusions of law upon which it is based, shall be final and binding and that judgment upon the final award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator may grant any remedy or relief that the arbitrator deems just and equitable, including any remedy or relief that would have been available to Employee or the Company or any of its Affiliates had the matter been heard in court. All expenses of arbitration, including the required travel and other expenses of the arbitrator and any witnesses, and the costs relating to any proof produced at the direction of the arbitrator, shall be borne equally by Employee and the Company unless otherwise mutually agreed or unless the arbitrator directs otherwise in the award. The arbitrator’s compensation shall be borne equally by Employee and the Company unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing or the law provides otherwise.
