SECTION 3.     EXERCISE PROCEDURES

 

  (a) Notice of Exercise. The Participant (or, if applicable the Participant’s representative) may exercise this Option by giving written notice to the Company specifying the election to exercise this Option, the number of Shares for which it is being exercised and the form of payment.

  (b) Issuance of Shares. After receiving a proper notice of exercise and subject to the terms of the Plan, the Notice and this Agreement, the Company shall cause to be issued a certificate or certificates for the Shares as to which this Option has been exercised, registered in the name of the person exercising this Option; provided that prior to the delivery of the Shares, the Participant enters a joinder to the Stockholders Agreement, or such other agreement in a form and substance satisfactory to the Company.

 

  (c) Withholding Requirements. The Company may withhold any tax (or other governmental obligation) as a result of the exercise of this Option, as a condition to the exercise of this Option, and the Participant shall make arrangements satisfactory to the Company to enable it to satisfy all such withholding requirements. The Participant shall also make arrangements satisfactory to the Company to enable it to satisfy any withholding requirements that may arise in connection with the vesting or disposition of Shares purchased pursuant to the exercise of this Option.

 

  (d) Legend. The Company shall cause to be issued a certificate or certificates for the Shares purchased pursuant to the exercise of this Option registered in the name of the Participant. Unless otherwise determined by the Company, such certificate shall bear the following legend:

“THE VOTING OF THE SHARES OF STOCK REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE, AND THE SALE, ENCUMBRANCE OR OTHER DISPOSITION THEREOF, ARE SUBJECT TO THE PROVISIONS OF THAT CERTAIN STOCK OPTION AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE RECORD HOLDER OF THE SHARES OF STOCK REPRESENTED BY THE CERTIFICATE AND THE ISSUER. SUCH AGREEMENT INCLUDES RESTRICTIONS AND LIMITATIONS ON THE TRANSFER OF THE SHARES OF STOCK REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE.”

SECTION 4.     PAYMENT FOR SHARES

 

  (a) Cash or Check. All or part of the Purchase Price may be paid in cash or personal check.

 

  (b) Alternative Methods of Payment. At the sole discretion of the Committee, all or any part of the Purchase Price and any applicable withholding requirements may be paid by one or more of the following methods:

 

  i. Surrender of Shares. By surrendering of Shares then owned by the Participant; provided that such action would not cause the Company or any Subsidiary to recognize a compensation expense (or additional compensation expense) with respect to the applicable Option for financial reporting purposes, unless the Committee consents thereto. Such Shares shall be surrendered to the Company in good form for transfer and shall be valued at their Fair Market Value on the date of the applicable exercise of this Option.

 

  ii. Net Exercise. By reducing the number of Shares otherwise deliverable pursuant to this Option by the number of such Shares having a Fair Market Value on the date of exercise equal to the Purchase Price (and if applicable, such required withholding).

 

  iii. Exercise/Sale. By delivering (on a form prescribed by the Company) an irrevocable direction (i) to a securities broker approved by the Company to sell Shares and to deliver all or part of the sales proceeds to the Company, or (ii) to pledge Shares to a securities broker or lender approved by the Company as security for a loan, and to deliver all or part of the loan proceeds to the Company, in each case in payment of all or part of the Purchase Price and any withholding requirements.

Should the Committee exercise its discretion to permit the Participant to exercise this Option in whole or in part in accordance with this Subsection (b) above, it shall have no obligation to permit such alternative exercise with respect to the remainder of this Option or with respect to any other Option to purchase Shares held by the Participant.

SECTION 5.     TRANSFER OR ASSIGNMENT OF OPTION.

This Option and the rights and privileges conferred hereby shall not be sold, pledged or otherwise transferred (whether by operation of law or otherwise) other than by will or the laws of descent and distribution and shall not be subject to sale under execution, attachment, levy or similar process.

SECTION 6.     SHAREHOLDER RIGHTS.

 

  (a) Stockholders Agreement. As a condition to the issuance of any Shares purchased upon exercise of this Option hereunder, the Participant shall enter into and execute a joinder to the Stockholders Agreement or such other agreement in a form and substance satisfactory to the Company.

 

  (b) Rights as Shareholder. Until such time as the Shares acquired upon exercise of this Option are repurchased by the Company in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, the Participant (or any successor in interest) shall have all the rights of a shareholder (including dividend and liquidation rights) with respect to such Shares. For the avoidance of doubt, the Participant shall have no rights as a stockholder with respect to the Shares underlying this Option until such Shares have been issued pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.

 

  (c) Voting Rights. The Participant hereby appoints each Principal Investor as its proxy to vote the Shares acquired upon exercise of this Option, whether at a meeting or by written consent in accordance with the provisions of Section 2 of the Stockholders Agreement (whether or not the Participant is required by the Company to execute a joinder to the Stockholders Agreement). The proxy granted hereby is irrevocable and coupled with an interest sufficient in law to support an irrevocable power. Notwithstanding the above, this paragraph 6(c) shall cease to apply as to any such Shares upon the termination of the Stockholders Agreement as to such Shares.

SECTION 7.     SECURITIES LAW ISSUES.

 

  (a) Securities Not Registered. The Shares acquired upon exercise of this Option have not been registered under the Securities Act. Any Shares acquired upon exercise of this Option are being issued to the Participant in reliance upon either (i) the exemption from such registration provided by Rule 701 promulgated under the Securities Act for stock issuances under compensatory benefit plans such as the Plan or (ii) the exemption for grants made to executive officers of the Company (or one of its Affiliates or Subsidiaries) under Section 4(2) and Regulation D of the Securities Act.

 

4


  (b) Participant Representations. The Participant hereby confirms that he or she has been informed that the Shares acquired upon exercise of this Option are “restricted securities” under the Securities Act which may not be resold or transferred unless they are first registered under the Securities Act or unless an exemption from such registration is available. Accordingly, the Participant hereby represents and acknowledges as follows:

 

  i. The Shares are being acquired for investment, and not with a view to sale or distribution thereof; and

 

  ii. The Participant is prepared to hold the Shares for an indefinite period and is aware that Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act (which exempts certain resales of securities) is not presently available to exempt the resale of the Shares from the registration requirements of the Securities Act.

 

  (c) Registration. The Company may, but shall not be obligated, to register or qualify the Shares under the Securities Act or any other applicable law, except, solely with respect to Participants who are signatories to or have executed a joinder with respect to the Registration Rights Agreement, as required under the Registration Rights Agreement.

 

  (d) Market Stand-Off. In connection with any underwritten public offering by the Company of its equity securities pursuant to an effective registration statement filed under the Securities Act, including the Company’s Initial Public Offering, the Participant hereby agrees, at the request of the Company or the managing underwriters, to be bound by and/or to execute and deliver, a lock-up agreement with the underwriter(s) of such public offering restricting such Participant’s right to (a) Transfer, directly or indirectly, any Shares acquired under this Agreement or any securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for such Shares or (b) enter into any swap or other arrangement that transfers to another any of the economic consequences of ownership of Shares acquired under this Agreement, in each case to the extent that such restrictions are agreed to by the Majority Principal Investors (as defined in the Stockholders Agreement) (or a majority of the shares of Common Stock if there are no Principal Investors remaining) with the underwriter(s) of such public offering (the “Principal Lock-Up Agreement”); provided, however, that the Participant shall not be required by this Section 7(d) to be bound by a lock-up agreement covering a period of greater than 90 days (180 days in the case of the Initial Public Offering) following the effectiveness of the related registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, such lock-up agreement shall not apply to: (a) Transfers to Permitted Transferees of the Participant permitted in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, (b) conversions of Shares into other classes of Shares or securities without change of Participant and (c) during the period preceding the execution of the underwriting agreement, Transfers to a charitable organization, described by Section 501(c)(3) of the Code, permitted in accordance with the terms of the Stockholders Agreement.

 

  (e) Additional Restrictions. The Shares are subject to such additional restrictions as are set forth in the Stockholders Agreement and any employment or consulting agreement between the Participant and the Company or any Subsidiary or Affiliate, as well as such other restrictions upon the sale, pledge or other transfer of such Shares (including the placement of appropriate legends on stock certificates or the imposition of stop-transfer instructions), that in the judgment of the Company, are necessary or desirable in order to achieve compliance with the Securities Act or the securities laws of any state or any other law.

 

5


  (f) Participant Undertaking. The Participant agrees to take whatever additional actions and execute whatever additional documents that the Company may deem necessary or advisable to carry out or effect one or more of the obligations or restrictions imposed on either the Participant or the Shares pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement or to comply with applicable laws.

 

  (g) Deferral of Exercise. Exercise of this Option may be deferred by the Committee if the Shares are not registered and the Committee determines, in its sole and absolute discretion, that after taking into account the number of holders of record of any class of equity securities of the Company at the time of exercise and potential future holders of record of any class of equity securities of the Company, such exercise may directly or indirectly result in the Company (whether at the time of exercise of this Option or in the future) being required to register any class of equity securities of the Company under applicable law, provided that, no such deferral may extend beyond the tenth (10th) anniversary of the date of grant (as set forth in Section 2(c) above). For the avoidance of doubt, in determining whether or not to defer exercise of this Option, the Committee may take into account (i) potential exercise of Options by Option holders other than the Participant, (ii) other issuances of Shares by the Company, and (iii) the Company’s intention to exercise or not to exercise Call Rights under this Agreement or any similar agreements. Upon a deferral of the exercise of this Option pursuant to this Section 7(g), the expiration of this Option shall be tolled but not beyond the tenth (10th) anniversary of the date of grant.

SECTION 8.     TRANSFER OF SHARES

 

  (a) General Rule. Other than as set forth herein, the Shares acquired upon exercise of this Option may not be transferred to any person other than to the Company or to a Permitted Transferee in accordance with the terms of the Stockholders Agreement (whether or not the Participant has executed a joinder to the Stockholders Agreement) or any other applicable agreement entered into by the Company and the Participant; provided that notwithstanding the Stockholders Agreement, the Company may restrict transfers to a Permitted Transferee if, in its sole and absolute discretion, the Company determines it desirable in order to limit the number of holders of record of shares of stock of the Company, so as to prevent the Company from becoming a reporting company under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934. Notwithstanding the above, this Section 8(a) shall cease to apply as to any Shares acquired upon exercise of this Option upon an Initial Public Offering, subject to the Stockholders Agreement or any other applicable agreement entered into by the Company and the Participant.

 

  (b) Transferee Obligations. If the Shares acquired upon exercise of this Option are transferred to a Permitted Transferee, such Permitted Transferee must, as a condition precedent to the validity of such transfer, acknowledge in writing to the Company that such person is bound by the provisions of this Agreement to the same extent such Shares would be so subject if retained by the Participant.

 

  (c)

Drag-Along Rights. The Shares acquired upon exercise of this Option shall be subject to the Drag-Along Rights as set forth in Sections 4.2 and 4.3 of the Stockholders Agreement (whether or not the Participant is a signatory thereof), the provisions of such Sections 4.2 and 4.3 of the Stockholders Agreement to apply mutatis mutandis to this Agreement. The Participant shall be deemed to have appointed each member of the Principal Investors, with full power of substitution, as the Participant’s true and lawful representative and attorney-in-fact, in such Participant’s name, place and stead, to execute and deliver any and all

 

6


  agreements that the members of the Principal Investors reasonably believe are consistent with the purposes of Sections 4.2 and 4.3 of the Stockholders Agreement. The foregoing power of attorney is coupled with an interest sufficient in law to support an irrevocable power and shall continue in full force and effect notwithstanding the subsequent death, incapacity, bankruptcy or dissolution of any Participant.

 

  (d) Tag-Along Rights. The Shares shall be subject to the Tag-Along Rights as, and to the extent, set forth in Section 4.1 of the Stockholders Agreement (whether or not the Participant is a signatory thereof), the provisions of such Section 4.1 of the Stockholders Agreement to apply mutatis mutandis to this Agreement.

 

  (e) Additional Shares or Substituted Securities. In the event of the declaration of a stock dividend, the declaration of an extraordinary dividend payable in a form other than stock, a spin-off, a stock split, an adjustment in conversion ratio, a recapitalization or a similar transaction affecting the Company’s outstanding securities without receipt of consideration, any new, substituted or additional securities or other property (including money paid other than as an ordinary cash dividend) which are by reason of such transaction distributed with respect to any of the Shares acquired upon exercise of this Option or into which such Shares thereby become convertible shall immediately be subject to this Section 8.

  (a) Call Right. If the Participant’s Service with the Company ceases for any reason, the Company shall have the right (but not an obligation) to call any Shares acquired upon exercise of this Option.

 

  (b) Exercise Notice.

  (c) Execution of Call. The closing of any purchase and sale pursuant to the Call Right shall take place at the principal office of the Company as soon as reasonably practicable and in no event later than thirty (30) days after the date of the Company’s exercise notice described in Section 9(b) or at such other time and location as the parties to such purchase may mutually determine; provided, however, that if this Option would be subject to California law, as provided in Section 2(d) of this Agreement, the closing of any purchase and sale pursuant to the Call right shall in no event take place later than ninety (90) days after the date of termination of the Participant’s Service.

 

  (d)

Purchase Price. If the Company exercises the Call Right, the Participant shall sell, and shall cause any Permitted Transferee to whom Shares acquired pursuant to exercise of this Option have been transferred to sell (and such Permitted Transferee shall sell), to the Company all of the Shares subject to the Call Right and the Company shall purchase each such Share for its Fair Market Value on the date of the issuance of the Company’s exercise notice pursuant to Section 9(b); provided, that, in the event of a termination of the Participant’s Service (i) by the Company for Cause, (ii) by the Participant’s resignation after an inquiry by the Company as to the existence of Cause has been initiated and Cause existed as of the date of such resignation, or (iii) by the Participant’s voluntary resignation without Good Reason prior to the third (3rd) anniversary of the Vesting Commencement Date, then the purchase price pursuant to the Call Right shall equal the lesser of the amount paid by the Participant or such

  Fair Market Value. The Company shall make commercially reasonable efforts, as determined by the Board of Directors in good faith, to pay all or any portion of the repurchase price in cash. However, if the Company cannot make all or any portion of the payment in cash it shall issue a promissory note with a principal amount equal to the amount of the repurchase price which was not paid in cash (e.g., the full amount or a portion thereof, as applicable), on which interest will accrue on the principal thereof at a rate equal to the prime rate and the principal, together with the interest thereon, will become due and payable, to the extent commercially reasonable (as determined by the Board of Directors), in three equal annual installments, payable on the first, second and third anniversaries of the date of issuance thereof.

 

  (e) Lapse of Rights. The Call Right shall lapse upon an Initial Public Offering.

  (g) Termination of Rights as Shareholder. If the Company makes available, at the time and place and in the amount and form provided in this Agreement, the consideration for the Shares to be purchased in accordance with this Section 9, then after such time the person from whom such Shares are to be purchased shall no longer have any rights as a holder of such Shares (other than the right to receive payment of such consideration in accordance with this Agreement).
