2018 STOCK PLAN
RESIDEO TECHNOLOGIES, INC. AND ITS AFFILIATES
RESTRICTED STOCK UNIT AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”) as of the [DAY] day of [MONTH, YEAR] (the “Award Date”) between Resideo Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) and the Participant.
Grant of Award. The Company has granted you Restricted Stock Units, subject to the terms of this Agreement and the terms of the 2018 Stock Plan of Resideo Technologies, Inc. and its Affiliates (the “Plan”). The Company will hold the Restricted Stock Units in a bookkeeping account on your behalf until they become payable or are forfeited or cancelled.
Please refer to the “Award Overview” for this award in your Resideo Stock Plan account at Morgan Stanley, which can be accessed at www.stockplanconnect.com and sets forth the number of Restricted Stock Units being awarded to you (along with other information about this Award), which is hereby incorporated by reference into, and shall be read as part of, this Agreement. This Award replaces a long-term incentive award (the “Prior Award”) that was previously granted to you by Honeywell International Inc. (“Honeywell”) under an equity incentive plan maintained by Honeywell, and that was cancelled as a result of the spin-off of the Company from Honeywell. The grant date associated with this Award, as reflected in the Award Overview, reflects the original grant date of the Prior Award from Honeywell, and the vesting schedule of this Award reflects the vesting schedule of the Prior Award.
By accepting this Award, you will be deemed to have acknowledged and agreed that the Prior Award has been cancelled in accordance with its terms, and none of Honeywell nor any of its affiliates has any obligation or liability to you arising out of, related to, or otherwise in respect of the Prior Award or the cancellation of the Prior Award.
Rights as a Shareholder. The Participant shall have no rights as a stockholder of the Company with respect to any Shares of Common Stock covered by or relating to the Restricted Stock Units until such Shares are actually delivered to the Participant. For purposes of clarification, the Participant shall not have any voting or dividend rights with respect to the Shares of Common Stock underlying the Restricted Stock Units unless and until such Shares are actually delivered to the Participant.
Dividend Equivalents. If the Participant was entitled to accrue dividends in respect of the Prior Award as set forth in the Award Overview, the Participant will also be entitled to earn Dividend Equivalents in respect of this Award in an amount equal to the value of any ordinary [cash or stock] dividends paid by the Company upon one Share of Common Stock for each unvested Restricted Unit, which may be credited in cash or Common Stock as determined by the Committee in such manner as the Committee may determine from time to time and will be subject to the same vesting provisions as apply to the Restricted Stock Units
|to which such Dividend Equivalents relate. If the Participant was not entitled to accrue dividends in respect of the Prior Award as set forth in the Award Overview, the Participant will not be entitled to earn Dividend Equivalents in respect of this Award.|
Payment Amount. Each Restricted Stock Unit represents one (1) Share of Common Stock.
Vesting. Except in the event of your Termination of Service due to death, or the incurrence of a Disability or as otherwise provided in Section 9 of this Agreement relating to a Change in Control, the Restricted Stock Units will vest as set forth in the Award Overview.
Form and Timing of Payment. Except as otherwise determined by the Committee in its sole discretion or as provided in Section 9(a) of this Agreement or unless otherwise provided in the Prior Award, vested Restricted Stock Units will be redeemed solely for Shares. Payment of vested Restricted Stock Units will be made as soon as practicable, but no later than 15 days, following the Vesting Date and in no event later than two and one-half (2-1/2) months following the end of the calendar year in which the Vesting Date occurs. As determined by the Company in its sole discretion prior to the Vesting Date, any fractional Shares may be paid in cash or rounded up or down to the nearest whole Share.
Termination of Service. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, if your Termination of Service occurs for any reason other than death or Disability before the Vesting Date, any unvested Restricted Stock Units will immediately be forfeited, and your rights with respect to these Restricted Stock Units will end.
Retirement, Death or Disability.
Vesting. If your Termination of Service occurs due to death or due to the incurrence of a Disability before the Vesting Date described in Section 5 of this Agreement, all of your unvested Restricted Stock Units will vest as of your Termination of Service due to death or Disability, as applicable. If you are deceased, the Company will make a payment to your estate only after the Committee has determined that the payee is the duly appointed executor or administrator of your estate, subject to Section 7.14 of the Plan.
Payment. Except as otherwise determined by the Committee, if your Termination of Service occurs due to death or due to the incurrence of a Disability before the Vesting Date, payment for vested Restricted Stock Units will be made as soon as practicable, but no later than 15 days, following such Termination of Service and in no event later than two and one-half (2-1/2) months following the end of the calendar year in which such Termination of Service occurs.
Change in Control. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in the event of a Change in Control (as defined in the Plan), the following provisions apply:
Cashout of Awards. Unless assumed, substituted or continued in accordance with Section 5.4(a) of the Plan, the Restricted Stock Units that have not vested or terminated as of the date of the Change in Control shall vest as of immediately prior to the Change in Control. Unless otherwise determined by the Committee,
|no later than 15 days after the date of the Change in Control, you will receive for the Restricted Stock Units a single payment in cash equal to the product of the number of outstanding Restricted Stock Units as of the date of the Change in Control (including any Restricted Stock Units that vest pursuant to this Section 9) and an amount equal to the highest price per Share paid by the successor company in connection with such Change in Control, as determined by the Committee.|
Rollover of Awards. If assumed, substituted or continued in accordance with Section 5.4(a) of the Plan, Restricted Stock Units that have not vested or terminated as of the date of the Change in Control will continue to vest in accordance with the schedule described in Section 5 of this Agreement (or as adjusted if more favorable); provided, however, that if you incur an involuntary Termination of Service not for Cause (as defined in Section 2 of the Plan) or a voluntary Termination of Service for Good Reason (as defined in Section 2 of the Plan) on or before the second anniversary of the date of the Change in Control, Restricted Stock Units that have not vested or terminated as of your Termination of Service will immediately vest in full and be settled no later than 15 days after the Termination of Service.
Withholdings. The Company or your local employer shall have the power and the right to deduct or withhold, or require you to remit to the Company or to your local employer, prior to any issuance or delivery of Shares underlying Restricted Stock Units, an amount sufficient to satisfy taxes imposed under the laws of any country, state, province, city or other jurisdiction, including but not limited to income taxes, capital gain taxes, transfer taxes, and social security contributions, and National Insurance Contributions, that are required by law to be withheld as determined by the Company or your local employer.
Transfer of Award. You may not transfer the Restricted Stock Units or any interest in such Units except by will or the laws of descent and distribution [or except as otherwise permitted by the Committee and as specified in the Plan]. Any other attempt to dispose of your interest will be null and void.

You understand that your local employer holds, by means of an automated data file, certain personal information about you, including, but not limited to, name, home address and telephone number, date of birth, social insurance number, salary, nationality, job title, any shares or directorships held in the Company, details of all restricted units or other entitlement to shares awarded, canceled, exercised, vested, unvested, or outstanding in your favor, for the purpose of managing and administering the Plan (“Data”).
You understand that part or all of your Data may be also collected, used, or held by the Company or its Affiliates for the purpose of managing and administering this award or any previous award/incentive plans. Specifically, your Data is transferred to, and/or collected, used, or held by [the Compensation & Benefits Department (at the business and Corporate levels), your local, regional and SBG business managers, the Company’s senior executives (e.g., SVP-HR, CEO), the Committee, and Morgan Stanley].

You understand that the Company or its Affiliates, as well as the Data Recipients, are or may be located in your country of residence or elsewhere, such as the United States. You authorize the Company or its Affiliates, as well as the Data Recipients, to receive, possess, use, retain, and transfer Data in electronic or other form, for the purposes of implementing, administering, and managing your participation in the Plan, including any transfer of such Data, as may be required for the administration of the Plan and/or the subsequent holding of Shares on your behalf, to a broker or third party with whom the Shares may be deposited.

Discretionary Nature and Acceptance of Award. By accepting this Award, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement and acknowledge that:
The Company (and not your local employer) is granting these Restricted Stock Units. This Agreement is not derived from any preexisting labor relationship between you and the Company, but rather from a mercantile relationship.
The Company may administer the Plan from outside your country of residence and United States law will govern all Restricted Stock Units granted under the Plan.
Benefits and rights provided under the Plan are wholly discretionary and, although provided by the Company, do not constitute regular or periodic payments.
The benefits and rights provided under the Plan are not to be considered part of your salary or compensation under your employment with your local employer for purposes of calculating any severance, resignation, redundancy or other end of service payments, vacation, bonuses, long-term service awards, indemnification, pension or retirement benefits, or any other payments, benefits or rights of any kind. You waive any and all rights to compensation or damages as a result of the termination of employment with your local employer for any reason whatsoever insofar as those rights result, or may result, from the loss or diminution in value of such rights under the Plan or your ceasing to have any rights under, or ceasing to be entitled to any rights under, the Plan as a result of such termination.
The grant of Restricted Stock Units hereunder, and any future grant of Restricted Stock Units under the Plan, is entirely voluntary, and at the complete discretion of the Company. Neither the grant of the Restricted Stock Units nor any future grant by the Company will be deemed to create any obligation to make any future grants, whether or not such a reservation is explicitly stated at the time of such a grant. The Company has the right, at any time and/or on an annual basis, to
|amend, suspend or terminate the Plan; provided, however, that no such amendment, suspension, or termination will adversely affect your rights hereunder.|
The Plan will not be deemed to constitute, and will not be construed by you to constitute, part of the terms and conditions of employment. Neither the Company nor your local employer will incur any liability of any kind to you as a result of any change or amendment, or any cancellation, of the Plan at any time.
Participation in the Plan will not be deemed to constitute, and will not be deemed by you to constitute, an employment or labor relationship of any kind with the Company.
Limitations. Nothing in this Agreement or the Plan gives you any right to continue in the employ of the Company or any of its Affiliates or to interfere in any way with the right of the Company or any Affiliate to terminate your employment at any time. Payment of your Restricted Stock Units is not secured by a trust, insurance contract or other funding medium, and you do not have any interest in any fund or specific asset of the Company by reason of this Award or the account established on your behalf.
Incorporation of Other Agreements. This Agreement and the Plan constitute the entire understanding between you and the Company regarding the Restricted Stock Units. This Agreement supersedes any prior agreements, commitments or negotiations concerning the Restricted Stock Units. All capitalized terms used and not defined herein shall have the meaning given to such terms in the Plan.
Severability. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of this Agreement will not affect the validity or enforceability of the other provisions of the Agreement, which will remain in full force and effect. Moreover, if any provision is found to be excessively broad in duration, scope or covered activity, the provision will be construed so as to be enforceable to the maximum extent compatible with applicable law.
Governing Law. The Plan, this Agreement, and all determinations made and actions taken under the Plan or this Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws, and not the choice of law rules, of the State of Delaware and construed accordingly, to the extent not superseded by applicable federal law.
Agreement Changes. The Company reserves the right to change the terms of this Agreement and the Plan without your consent to the extent necessary or desirable to comply with the requirements of Section 409A of the Code, the Treasury regulations and other guidance thereunder.
Successors and Assigns of the Company. The terms and conditions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the Company and its successors and assigns.
