(b) Grant Date. The Award was awarded to Employee on March 28, 2013 (the “Grant Date”).

2. Vesting. Subject to the terms and conditions specified on Exhibit “A” and as long as Employee remains continuously employed by the Company or its Affiliates, (i) 12  1/2% of the Performance Units granted under the Award shall vest on January 1, 2014 (the “First Vesting Date”), (ii) 37  1/2% of the Performance Units granted under the Award shall vest on January 1, 2015 (the “Second Vesting Date”), and (iii) 50% of the Performance Units granted under the Award shall vest on the earlier of (A) January 1, 2016 (the “Final Vesting Date”), or (B) the date of Employee’s voluntary termination of employment with the Company and all of its Affiliates, provided such date is on or after February 1, 2015 and Employee has provided the Company’s Board of Directors with written notice of such termination at least 45 days before the effective date thereof (the “Termination Vesting Date,” and together with the “Final Vesting Date,” the “Third Vesting Date”). The First Vesting Date, the Second Vesting Date, and the Third Vesting Dates shall be collectively referred to as the “Vesting Dates.” If the terms and conditions specified on Exhibit “A” are not met with respect to each Vesting Date, the Performance Units scheduled to vest on such Vesting Date shall expire and be forfeited and Employee shall have no right to payment or compensation with respect to any such unvested portion of the Award.

Except as provided in Section 2(iii)(B) above with respect to the Termination Vesting Date, if Employee terminates employment with the Company or its Affiliates, whether voluntarily or involuntarily (including by death), for any reason, he or she shall immediately forfeit all interest in the unvested portion of an Award, and such forfeited Award shall not be considered outstanding.

4. Payment of Awards.

(a) General.

The payment for the then-vesting portion of the Award determined in accordance with this Section 4 shall be made within a reasonable time after the Committee Certification Date (as defined in Exhibit “A”). In no event will any payment with respect to the Performance Units that vest as of any Vesting Date (including a deemed Vesting Date as described in Section 5(a) or 5(b)) be made later than March 15 of the calendar year following the calendar year in which such Vesting Date occurs; provided, however, if the Committee has not provided the Committee Certification by such March 15, such portion of the Award shall not vest or be payable with respect to such Vesting Date. All payments shall be made in cash. “Beneficiary” means the person(s) designated by Employee to receive any amounts payable under this Agreement upon the Employee’s death.

EXHIBIT “A”

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF PERFORMANCE UNITS

 

1. Vesting Requirements. In addition to the continuous employment of Employee, the vesting of any awards on any Vesting Date shall be contingent upon the E-Commerce Division’s achievement of the EBITDA CAGR specified in Section 3 of this Exhibit. The vesting of any portion of the Award shall be subject to Committee Certification, as described in Section 6 of this Exhibit.

 

2. EBITDA. Except as provided in Section 2(f) of this Exhibit, “EBITDA” means the consolidated earnings of the E-Commerce Division before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses. EBITDA shall be calculated as if the E-Commerce Division was being operated as a separate and independent corporation and determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States or such other accounting principles that may be adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission and are or become applicable to the Company (“GAAP”) as consistently applied by the Company; provided, however, that in determining EBITDA:

(a) EBITDA shall be computed without regard to “extraordinary items” of gain or loss as that term shall be defined in GAAP.

(b) EBITDA shall not include any gain or loss that exceeds $500,000 in a single transaction from either the deconsolidation of any subsidiary or the sale or write-off of (i) discontinued business operations (as defined in GAAP), (ii) any ownership interest in a subsidiary or other entity in which the Company or a subsidiary of the Company has an ownership interest of at least 10% before the transaction, or (iii) assets classified under GAAP as noncurrent assets (other than the noncurrent portion of any loans to customers).

(c) EBITDA for any period shall be increased by Capital Charges income earned and reduced by Capital Charges expense accrued. Capital Charges means the interest charges calculated on a monthly basis for amounts advanced between the Company or its affiliates and the E-Commerce Division, including amounts advanced for working capital, investments or capital improvements (including investments in other businesses through acquisitions or debt/equity investments, and specifically including all amounts advanced for use as acquisition consideration for the purchase of the Debit Plus, LLC business – including past and future earn-out payments, but excluding all amounts advanced for use as acquisition consideration for the purchase of The Check Giant’s business – including past earn-out payments), with the interest rate being the rate per annum published two business days before the beginning of the month as the London interbank offered rate for deposits in Dollars (“LIBOR”) for a one month term plus 4.5 percentage points. Such interest rate shall be rounded upwards, if necessary, to the next higher 1/16th of one percentage point. For purposes of illustration, the interest rate used to calculate Capital Charges for the Month of May shall be determined using the one-month LIBOR rate published on the second-to-last business day of April. Interest for a month shall be calculated on a basis of a 360 day year and the actual number of days in the month, and shall be computed on the average balance of advances outstanding at the beginning and end of the month. Any promissory notes or other obligations issued or assigned in payment of dividends or other capital distributions are not considered “amounts advanced.”


(d) EBITDA shall not include the corporate administrative overhead allocation, if any, that is charged to the E-Commerce Division by the Company or its Affiliates other than Affiliates included in the E-Commerce Division or any outside accounting, legal, consulting, underwriting or other fees or other out-of-pocket costs incurred by the Company or the E-Commerce Division solely on account of a proposed or completed Enova Public Offering.

(e) For purposes of calculating EBITDA, income taxes shall mean only federal, state, local and foreign taxes on the income of the E-Commerce Division and shall not include (i) any other tax, charge, fee, duty (including customs duty), levy or assessment, including any ad valorem, turnover, real and personal property (tangible and intangible), sales, use, franchise (other than franchise taxes based on income), excise, value added, stamp, leasing, lease, user, transfer, fuel, excess profits, windfall profits, occupational, premium, interest equalization, severance, license, registration, payroll, environmental (including taxes under Code Section 59A), capital stock, capital duty, disability, gains, wealth, welfare, employee’s income withholding, other withholding, unemployment and social security or other tax of whatever kind (including any fee, assessment and other charges in the nature of or in lieu of any tax) that is imposed by any governmental authority, (ii) any interest, fines, penalties or additions resulting from, attributable to, or incurred in connection with any items described in this paragraph or any related contest or dispute and (iii) any items described in this paragraph that are attributable to another person but that the owner of the E-Commerce Division is liable to pay by law, by contract or otherwise, whether or not disputed.

(f) EBITDA for calendar year 2012 (“2012 EBITDA”) shall be $139,194,741.

 

3. CAGR Threshold for Vesting and Payment. The portion of the Award that will vest and be payable (subject to Committee Certification, as described below) shall be subject to the continuous employment of Employee by the Company or its Affiliates through the applicable Vesting Date (or in the case of the Termination Vesting Date, through the last day preceding such Termination Vesting Date) and shall be determined as follows:

(a) The E-Commerce Division must achieve an EBITDA CAGR of at least [**Confidential Treatment Requested] from December 31, 2012 through December 31 of the year immediately preceding the First Vesting Date, Second Vesting Date or the Final Vesting Date, as applicable, in order for any portion of the Award to vest on the First Vesting Date, Second Vesting Date or the Final Vesting Date, respectively, and become payable. Except as provided in Section 3(c) of this Exhibit, the E-Commerce Division must achieve an EBITDA CAGR of at least [**Confidential Treatment Requested] from December 31, 2012 through December 31, 2015 in order for any portion of the Award to vest on the Termination Vesting Date and become payable.

(b) If the E-Commerce Division achieves an EBITDA CAGR of at least of [**Confidential Treatment Requested] over the period from December 31, 2012 through December 31 of the year immediately preceding the First Vesting Date, Second Vesting Date or the Final Vesting Date, as applicable, then a portion of the Award will vest on the First Vesting Date, Second Vesting Date or the Final Vesting Date, respectively, in accordance with Section 2 of the Agreement, subject to Section 5(c) of the Agreement. If the E-Commerce Division achieves an EBITDA CAGR of at least [**Confidential Treatment Requested] over the period

EBITDA CAGR for such period shall be computed using the following formula:

[(CIC EBITDA or Enova Offering Event EBITDA, as applicable / 2012 EBITDA)] ^ [(1/(the total number of whole months in the period from December 31, 2012 through the end of the period used to determine CIC EBITDA or Enova Offering Event EBITDA / 12)] – 1.

(d) Any portion of the Award that does not vest as of the applicable Vesting Date or in the event of a Change in Control or Enova Public Offering, if applicable and as more particularly described herein, shall expire and be forfeited and Employee shall thereafter have no further right to payment or compensation with respect to any such unvested portion of such Award.

(e) For purposes of determining the amount of the Award that will vest and be payable, CAGR shall be rounded to the nearest 0.1%.

 

4. Base for Calculation of CAGR. For purposes of determining EBITDA CAGR as of any Vesting Date, the base EBITDA shall be the 2012 EBITDA.

 

5. Valuation of Performance Units. The Performance Units shall have a Unit Value as set forth in Section 4(c) and/or Section 4(f) of the Agreement, as applicable. The value of any Performance Units granted under the Award that vest on any Vesting Date or that vest in accordance with Section 5 of the Agreement and become payable shall be based on one or more percentages (each a “Percentage Multiple”) of the amount of the E-Commerce Division’s positive growth in its annual EBITDA, if any, during the applicable period(s) specified in Sections 2 and 4 of the Agreement. For purposes of this paragraph and Section 4 of the Agreement, the Percentage Multiples and the Total EBITDA Pool shall be determined as follows:

(a) The 2013 Percentage Multiple shall be [**Confidential Treatment Requested].

(b) The 2014 Percentage Multiple shall be [**Confidential Treatment Requested].

(c) For purposes of Section 4(d)(iii) of the Agreement, the Total EBITDA Pool shall be computed using the following table based on the amount by which EBITDA for calendar year 2015 (“2015 EBITDA”) exceeds 2012 EBITDA and the 2015 Percentage Multiples specified in column (D) of the table:

(d) The 2015 CIC/Enova Event Percentage Multiple shall be [**Confidential Treatment Requested].

 

6. Committee Certification. At its first regularly scheduled meeting (or, if later, at the first meeting held once the necessary EBITDA data has become available) following each Vesting Date, the Committee (or any successor thereto) shall determine and certify as to whether the conditions described in this Exhibit and other material terms for the vesting of any portion of the Award were met on the applicable Vesting Date (the “Vesting Conditions”) and, if so, (i) the number of Performance Units that have vested on such Vesting Date, (ii) the amount of EBITDA for each period used to determine the EBITDA CAGR and the Unit Value of such vested Performance Units in accordance with Section 4 of the Agreement, (iii) the EBITDA CAGR achieved for each applicable period, and (iv) the total amount payable with respect to such vested Performance Units (“Committee Certification”). The Vesting Conditions will be considered to have been met only to the extent that the Committee certifies in writing (within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.162-27(e)(5)) that they have been met. The Committee Certification shall include the satisfaction of the EBITDA CAGR set forth in this Exhibit and of the satisfaction of all other material terms of the Award. The date the Committee makes such a written certification shall be deemed the “Committee Certification Date.

 

7. Capitalized Terms. Any terms used in this Exhibit with an initial capital letter shall have the same meaning as provided in the Agreement, unless otherwise specified herein.
