Execution Copy

PERFORMANCE AWARD

FOR

CAPITAL SENIOR LIVING CORPORATION

This Performance Award Agreement (this “Agreement”) sets forth the terms of a PERFORMANCE AWARD (“Award”) granted on January 7, 2019 (“Date of Grant” or the “Effective Date”), by Capital Senior Living Corporation, a Delaware Corporation (the “Company”), to Kimberly Lody (the “Holder”). This Award is made as an inducement to the Holder to accept employment with the Company and as such is not subject to the terms, and provisions, of the 2007 Omnibus Stock and Incentive Plan For Capital Senior Living Corporation as previously amended and restated and as may be amended and restated subsequent to the Date of Grant (the “Plan”), however, capitalized terms used but not defined in this Agreement shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Plan, provided, however, that the term Change in Control as used in this Agreement shall have the meaning ascribed in the Employment Agreement.

RECITALS

A. The Company and Holder entered into that certain employment agreement dated January 7, 2019 (the “Employment Agreement”).

B. The Committee has determined that it is in its best interest to offer the Holder this Performance Award as an inducement to the Holder to accept employment with the Company.

C. Holder wishes to accept such Award on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises set forth in this Agreement, and for other good and valuable consideration, the adequacy of which is acknowledged by the parties’ execution of this Agreement, the Company and the Holder agree as follows:

1. Performance Award. The Company hereby sells, transfers, assigns and delivers to the Holder an aggregate of 147,239 Shares of the Company as of the Date of Grant (“Target Award Restricted Shares”) subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Award, including, without limitation, the Restrictions more specifically set forth in Section 4 below (“Restrictions”), and further subject to Holder’s execution of this Award Agreement.

2. Vesting of Target Award Restricted Shares.

(a) The Award shall be one hundred percent (100%) unvested as of the Date of Grant. Except as otherwise provided in the Plan and this Award, the Target Award Restricted Shares shall vest and become non-forfeitable (referred to hereafter as “Vested Shares”) on the date that the performance results as described in Section (i), (ii), or (iii) of this Section 2 are met (the “Performance Vesting Date”), provided that the Holder remains in Continuous Service with the Company or any of its Subsidiaries on the Performance Vesting Date, as applicable.


For purposes of this Agreement, “Continuous Service” means the Holder’s service with the Company, whether as an employee, consultant or director, is not interrupted or terminated, other than for temporary absences, including, without limitation, reasonable vacation time, sick leave, military leave or any other personal or family leave of absence. The Holder’s Continuous Service shall not be deemed to have terminated merely because of a change in the capacity in which the Holder renders service to the Company as an employee, consultant or director or a change in the entity for which the Holder renders such service, provided that there is no interruption or termination of the Holder’s Continuous Service; and provided further that if any Award is subject to Section 409A of the Code, this sentence shall only be given effect to the extent consistent with Section 409A of the Code.

(i) Upon the closing price of a share of the Company’s Common Stock equaling or exceeding an increase of $2.00 above the volume weighted average selling price of a share of CSL common stock for the 10 trading days immediately prior to January 7, 2019, as consistent with ASC Topic 718 (the “Threshold Price”) for fifteen (15) consecutive trading days during the Performance Period (the “Consecutive Period”), fifty percent (50%) of the Target Award Restricted Shares shall become vested as of the last trading day which made up the Consecutive Period (the “Threshold Performance Vesting Date”). The period of time beginning on the Date of Grant and ending on the Award Termination Date is the “Performance Period.”

(ii) Upon the closing price of a share of the Company’s Common Stock equaling or exceeding an increase of $2.00 above the Threshold Price (the “Target Price”) for the Consecutive Period, an additional fifty percent (50%) of the Target Award Restricted Shares shall become vested as of the last trading day which made up the Consecutive Period (“Target Performance Vesting Date”). Therefore, as of the Target Performance Vesting Date, 100% of the Target Award Restricted Shares shall be Vested Shares. If the Target Performance Vesting Date is achieved during the period from the Date of Grant through the first (1st) anniversary of the Date of Grant (“Year One”), an additional multiplier shall be applied thereby increasing the vested Target Award Restricted Shares by twenty five percent (25%) for a total amount of Vested Shares equal to one hundred and twenty-five percent (125%) of the Target Award Restricted Shares. If the Target Performance Vesting Date is achieved during the period from the day following the first (1st) anniversary of the Date of Grant through the second (2nd) anniversary of the Date of Grant (“Year Two”), an additional multiplier shall be applied thereby increasing the vested Target Award Restricted Shares by ten percent (10%) for a total amount of Vested Shares equal to one hundred and ten percent (110%) of the Target Award Restricted Shares.

(iii) Upon the closing price of a share of the Company’s Common Stock equaling or exceeding an increase of $2.00 above the Target Price (the “Maximum Price”) for the Consecutive Period, an additional one hundred percent (100%) of the Target Award Restricted Shares shall become vested as of the last trading day which made up the Consecutive Period (“Maximum Performance Vesting Date”). Therefore, as of the last of the Maximum Performance Vesting Date, 200% of the Target Award Restricted Shares shall be Vested Shares (the “Maximum Vested Shares”). If the Maximum Performance Vesting Date is achieved during Year One an additional multiplier shall be applied thereby increasing the Maximum Vested Shares by fifty percent (50%) for a total amount of Vested Shares equal to two hundred and fifty percent (250%) of the Target Award Restricted Shares. If the Maximum Performance Vesting Date is achieved during Year Two an additional multiplier shall be applied thereby increasing the Maximum Vested Shares by twenty-five percent (25%) for a total amount of Vested Shares equal to two hundred and twenty-five percent (225%) of the Target Award Restricted Shares.

(b) Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, shares of Common Stock which become Vested Shares under this Agreement either in Year One or Year Two shall be subject to a twelve (12) month holding requirement from such Performance Vesting Date as applicable, provided however, that this twelve (12) month holding requirement shall not apply to shares of Common Stock withheld for the payment of taxes as provided in Section 5 of this Agreement or sold by Holder as reasonably necessary to pay taxes associated with the vesting of Vested Shares.

(c) Provided, however, that as of the third (3rd) anniversary of the Date of Grant (the “Award Termination Date”), the Holder shall forfeit the unvested Award as of the Award Termination Date.

(d) Except as otherwise provided in this Section 2, in the event that the Holder’s Continuous Service is terminated by the Company or by the Holder for any reason, the Holder shall forfeit the unvested Award as of the Holder’s termination date.

(e) In the event that the Holder’s Continuous Service is terminated by the Company due to the Holder’s death or Disability (as defined in such Holder’s employment agreement (or, if not defined therein, as defined in the Plan)), the unvested Award shall immediately vest in the amount of the Target Award Restricted Shares.

3. Change in Control. Upon a Change in Control the number of shares that shall become Vested Shares shall be determined in the same manner as provided for in Section 2 of this Agreement. Provided, however, that in the event a Change in Control occurs which results in the Company’s Common Stock no longer being readily tradeable on an established securities market (“Private Transaction”), the imputed value of the Private Transaction shall be determined on a per share of Common Stock basis and such imputed value shall be used in determining the number of Shares which shall become Vested Shares under Section 2 of this Agreement without regard to the Consecutive Period.

4. Restriction - Forfeiture of Target Award Restricted Shares. The Target Award Restricted Shares are each subject to the restrictions (“Restrictions”) that (i) all rights of Holder to any Target Award Restricted Shares which have not become Vested Shares shall, automatically and without notice, terminate and be permanently forfeited on the date Holder, for any reason, ceases to be employed by the Company, except as otherwise stated herein; and (ii) all rights of Holder to the specified percentage of Target Award Restricted Shares which have not become Vested Shares because the performance measures pursuant to Section 2 above have not been satisfied shall, automatically and without notice, terminate and be permanently forfeited.

5. Tax Liability and Withholding.

a. Payment of Taxes. The Holder shall be required to pay to the Company, and the Company shall have the right to deduct from any compensation paid to the Holder pursuant to this Agreement, the amount of any required withholding taxes in respect of the Target Award Restricted Shares granted under this Agreement and to take all such other action as the Committee deems necessary to satisfy all obligations for the payment of such withholding taxes. The Committee may permit the Holder to satisfy any federal, state or local tax withholding obligation by any of the following means, or by a combination of such means: (i) tendering a cash payment; (ii) authorizing the Company to withhold shares of Common Stock from the shares of Common Stock otherwise issuable or deliverable to the Holder as a result of the vesting of the Target Award Restricted Shares; provided, however, that no shares of Common Stock shall be withheld with a value exceeding the minimum amount of tax required to be withheld by law; or (iii) delivering to the Company previously owned and unencumbered shares of Common Stock.

 

3


b. Liability. Notwithstanding any action the Company takes with respect to any or all income tax, social insurance, payroll tax, or other tax-related withholding (“Tax-Related Items”), the ultimate liability for all Tax-Related Items is and remains the Holder’s responsibility and the Company (a) makes no representation or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related Items in connection with the grant, or vesting of the Target Award Restricted Shares or the subsequent sale of any shares; and (b) does not commit to structure the Target Award Restricted Shares to reduce or eliminate the Holder’s liability for Tax-Related Items.

6. Issuance of Shares. During the Restricted Period (as defined in the Plan), the certificates representing the Target Award Restricted Shares, and any Restricted Share Distributions, shall be registered in the Holder’s name and bear a restrictive legend disclosing the Restriction and the existence of this Award. Such certificates shall be deposited by the Holder with the Company, together with stock powers or other instruments of assignment, each endorsed in blank, which will permit the transfer to the Company of all or any portion of the Target Award Restricted Shares, and any assets constituting Restricted Share Distributions, which shall be subject to forfeiture in accordance with the terms of this Award. The Company will retain custody of all related Restricted Share Distributions (i.e., dividends, which will be subject to the same Restriction, terms, and conditions as the related Target Award Restricted Shares) unless and until Holder is entitled to receive the certificates for the related Vested Shares; provided, however, that any Restricted Share Distributions shall not bear interest or be segregated into a separate account but shall remain a general asset of the Company, subject to the claims of the Company’s creditors, until the conclusion of the applicable restricted period; and provided, further, that any material breach of any terms of this Award, as reasonably determined by the Committee, will cause a forfeiture of both Target Award Restricted Shares and Restricted Share Distributions.

Target Award Restricted Shares shall constitute issued and outstanding Common Stock for all corporate purposes and, without limitation, Holder shall have all of the rights and privileges of an owner of the Target Award Restricted Shares (including voting rights) except that Holder shall not be entitled to delivery of the certificates evidencing any of the Target Award Restricted Shares, nor the related Restricted Share Distributions, unless and until they become Vested Shares.

7. Administration of Award. The determinations under, and the interpretations of, any provision of this Award by the Committee shall, in all cases, be in its sole discretion, and shall be final and conclusive.

8. No Transfers Permitted. Any attempt to assign, alienate, pledge, attach, sell or otherwise transfer or encumber the Target Award Restricted Shares or the rights relating thereto shall be wholly ineffective and, if any such attempt is made, the Target Award Restricted Shares will be forfeited by the Holder and all of the Holder’s rights to such shares shall immediately terminate without any payment or consideration by the Company.

9. Section 83(b) Election. Holder may elect under Section 83(b) of the Code to include in his or her gross income, for his or her taxable year in which the Target Award Restricted Shares are transferred to such Holder under this Award, the excess of the fair market value (determined without regard to any Restriction other than one which by its terms will never lapse), of such Target Award Restricted Shares at the Date of Grant, over the amount (if any) paid for the Target Award Restricted Shares. If the Holder makes the Section 83(b) election described above, the Holder shall (i) make such election in a manner that is satisfactory to the Committee, (ii) provide the Committee with a copy of such election, (iii) agree to promptly notify the Company if any Internal Revenue Service or state tax agent, on audit or otherwise, questions the validity or correctness of such election or of the amount of income reportable on account of such election, and (iv) agree to pay the withholding amounts described in Section 5(a) above.

10. Interpretation. Any dispute regarding the interpretation of this Award shall be submitted by the Holder or the Company to the Committee for review. The resolution of such dispute by the Committee shall be final and binding on the Holder and the Company. In the event of any inconsistency between the terms and conditions of this Award and any existing employment agreement, service contract or other agreement between the Holder and the Company (each, a “Service Agreement”), the terms and conditions of the Service Agreement shall control.

(a) Headings contained in this Award are for convenience only and shall in no manner be construed as part of this Award.

(b) Any reference to the masculine, feminine, or neuter gender shall be a reference to such other gender as is appropriate.

11. Adjustment. Unless the Committee specifically determines otherwise, the Target Award Restricted Shares shall be subject to adjustment or substitution as to the number, or, if applicable, kind of shares of stock or other consideration subject to such Awards or as otherwise determined by the Committee to be equitable (a) in the event of changes in the outstanding Common Stock or in the capital structure of the Company, by reason of stock dividends, stock splits, recapitalizations, reorganizations, mergers, consolidations, combinations, exchanges or other relevant changes in capitalization occurring after the date of the grant of any such Award or (b) in the event of any change in applicable laws or any change in circumstances which results in or would result in any substantial dilution or enlargement of the rights granted to, or available for, the Holder under this Agreement, or which otherwise warrants equitable adjustment because it interferes with the intended operation of the Agreement. The Company shall give each Holder notice of an adjustment hereunder and, upon notice, such adjustment shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes.

12. Amendment. The Committee has the right to amend, alter, suspend, discontinue or cancel any unvested Target Award Restricted Shares granted under this Agreement, prospectively or retroactively; provided, that, no such amendment, shall adversely affect the Holder’s material rights or vested Target Award Restricted Shares under this Agreement without the Holder’s consent.

13. Assignment. The Company may assign any of its rights under this Award. This Award will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of the Company. Subject to the restrictions on transfer set forth in this Award, this Award will be binding upon the Holder and the Holder’s beneficiaries, executors, administrators and the person(s) to whom the Target Award Restricted Shares may be transferred by will or the laws of descent or distribution.

14. Waiver. No delay or omission by the Company in exercising any right under this Award shall operate as a waiver of that or any other right. A waiver or consent given by the Company on any one occasion shall be effective only in that instance and shall not be construed as a bar or waiver of any right on any other occasion.
