Upon and subject to the terms and conditions below and the terms and conditions of the PHH Corporation 2015 Management Incentive Plan (as amended from time to time, the “MIP”) and the PHH Corporation 2014 Equity and Incentive Plan (as amended from time to time, the “2014 EIP”), each to the extent applicable, the Company hereby awards to Grantee a cash incentive bonus (the “Award”) described herein. Capitalized terms used, but not defined, in this Award have the respective meanings ascribed to them in the MIP or the 2014 EIP.

A.
Plan Year (to which the Award relates) means: January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017.

B.
Target Amount, Targets, and Performance Criteria: In calculating the final amount available for payment under this Award for 2017, the Committee will take into account the results achieved by the Company and its Affiliates against the performance criteria as described in Appendix A (the “Performance Criteria”). The Grantee’s individual 2017 MIP goal of $________ (the “Target Amount”) will be adjusted based on performance against the Performance Criteria for the Plan Year as approved by the Committee in the manner which is shown in Appendix A. The Grantee’s final MIP award, if any, is subject to Company and individual performance as well as Committee discretion.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, no payment will be made under any award unless (1) the 2018 Business plan demonstrates, in the discretion of the Committee, adequate available liquidity resources to meet the 2018 business liquidity needs, and (2) the Company is in compliance with the minimum net worth covenants in its borrowing arrangements.
C.
Impact of Performance on MIP: Subject to the MIP, the 2014 EIP, and the other terms of this Award, the Committee will assess the level of attainment of the Plan Year Performance Criteria set forth in Appendix A based on the Threshold, Target, and Maximum goals provided on Appendix A, as certified by the Committee.

D.
Vesting and Payment: Unless contrary to applicable law and except as provided in this Paragraph D or the MIP, the Grantee will only become vested in the Award if the Grantee is employed by the Company or an Affiliate on the date the Committee (or its designee) certifies the level of achievement of all the Plan Year Performance Criteria. Except as provided in in this Paragraph D or the MIP, if the Committee (or its designee) does not certify the level of achievement of all the Plan Year Performance Criteria, or if the Grantee is not an employee of the Company or an Affiliate on the date, if any, that such certification occurs, no amount will be payable pursuant to this Award. If Grantee is terminated without Cause, the Grantee will be entitled to a pro-rata portion of the final Award based on the number of days worked by the Grantee in the Plan Year over the total number of days in the Plan Year with performance against the Performance Criteria (other than MBOs) determined by the Committee for the entire Plan Year and with MBO performance determined through the date of termination. The Change in Control provisions of the MIP, including, without limitation, Section 5.5 thereof, do not apply. Any vested Award amount will be paid within thirty (30) days following certification by the Committee (or its designee) of all the Plan Year Performance Criteria, but no later than March 15 of the year immediately following the Plan Year.

For purposes of this Award, “Cause” means any one of the following: (1) a material failure of the Grantee to substantially perform the Grantee’s duties with the Company or its Affiliates (other than failure resulting from incapacity due to physical or mental illness); (2) any act of fraud, misappropriation, dishonesty, embezzlement or similar conduct against, or relating to the assets of, the Company or its Affiliates; (3) conviction (or plea of nolo contendere) of a felony or any crime involving moral turpitude; (4) repeated instances of negligence in the performance of the Grantee’s job or any instance of gross negligence in the performance of the Grantee’s duties as an employee of the Company or one of its Affiliates; (5) any breach by the Grantee of any fiduciary obligation owed to the Company or any Affiliate or any material element of the Company’s Code of Business Ethics and Conduct or other applicable workplace policies; or (6) failure by the Grantee to perform Grantee’s job duties for the Company or any Affiliate to the best of Grantee’s ability and in accordance with reasonable instructions and directions from the Board of Directors or its designee, and the reasonable workplace policies and procedures established by the Company or any Affiliate, as applicable, from time to time.
