Exhibit 10.9


This AMENDED AND RESTATED EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT (this "Agreement"), dated as of December 12, 2014, is entered into by and between REVLON CONSUMER PRODUCTS CORPORATION, a Delaware corporation (“RCPC” and, together with its parent Revlon, Inc. ("Revlon") and its subsidiaries, the "Company"), and Lorenzo Delpani (the "Executive").

WHEREAS, RCPC wishes to employ the Executive and the Executive wishes to accept employment with the Company on the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.

NOW, THEREFORE, RCPC and the Executive hereby agree as follows:

1.    Employment, Duties and Acceptance.

1.1.    Employment, Duties. RCPC hereby employs the Executive for the Term (as defined in Section 2.1) to render exclusive and full-time services to the Company in the capacity of President and Chief Executive Officer of Revlon and RCPC, reporting to the Board of Directors of each of Revlon and RCPC, and to perform such duties and responsibilities as shall be consistent with such position (including serving as a director of Revlon and/or RCPC and serving as a director and/or officer of any subsidiary of the Company, if so elected), and such other duties and responsibilities, in each case as may be assigned to the Executive from time to time by Revlon's Board of Directors.

1.2.    Acceptance. The Executive hereby accepts such employment and agrees to render the services described above. During the Term, the Executive agrees to serve the Company faithfully and to the best of the Executive's ability, to devote the Executive's entire business time, energy and skill to such employment, and to use the Executive's best efforts, skill and ability to promote the Company's interests.

1.3.    Location. The duties to be performed by the Executive hereunder shall be performed primarily at the office of RCPC in the New York City metropolitan area, subject to reasonable travel requirements consistent with the nature of the Executive’s duties from time to time on behalf of the Company. From and after the date hereof, if the Executive is still residing in Miami, FL, until the sooner of his relocation to the New York City metropolitan area or July 1, 2014, RCPC will provide the Executive with the services of a relocation consultant to assist the Executive in locating a residence in the New York City metropolitan area. During such time, the Executive shall commute to and from Miami and RCPC’s offices as necessary to carry out his duties hereunder, and RCPC will pay for the reasonable and documented travel costs incurred by the Executive for such direct commute.

1.4.    Performance Warranty. As an inducement for RCPC to enter into this Agreement, the Executive hereby represents that the Executive is not a party to any contract, agreement or understanding which prevents, prohibits or limits the Executive in any way from entering into and fully performing the Executive's obligations under this Agreement and any duties and responsibilities that may be assigned to the Executive hereunder.






2.    Term of Employment.

2.1.    The Term. The Term of the Executive's employment under this Agreement shall commence on November 1, 2013 (the "Effective Date") and shall end thirty (30) days after RCPC provides to the Executive a notice of non-renewal, unless sooner terminated pursuant to Section 4 (the “Term”).

3.    Compensation; Benefits.

3.1.    Salary. The Company agrees to pay the Executive during the Term a base salary, payable bi-weekly, at the annual rate of not less than $1,200,000, with effect from January 1, 2014 (the "Base Salary"). All payments of Base Salary or other compensation hereunder shall be less such deductions or withholdings as are required by applicable law and regulations. The Executive will be considered for merit increases in connection with the Executive's performance evaluations, which are performed in accordance with the Company's salary administration policies and procedures. In the event that RCPC, in its sole discretion, from time to time determines to increase the Base Salary, such increased amount shall, from and after the effective date of the increase, constitute "Base Salary" for purposes of this Agreement and shall not thereafter be decreased.

3.2.    Annual Bonus. The Executive shall be eligible to participate in the Company’s annual bonus programs as shall be in effect from time to time (the “Bonus Programs”), to the extent implemented under the Revlon Executive Incentive Compensation Plan or such successor plan as shall be in effect from time to time (the “Incentive Compensation Plan”), with target bonus eligibility of 100% of Base Salary for achieving performance objectives set by the Compensation Committee or its designee, subject to the terms and conditions of such Bonus Programs and the Incentive Compensation Plan. In the event that the Executive's employment shall terminate pursuant to Section 4.3 during any calendar year, the Executive's bonus with respect to the year during which such termination occurs shall be pro-rated for the actual number of days of active employment during such year and such bonus as pro-rated shall be payable (i) if and to the extent bonuses are payable to executives under the Bonus Program for that year based upon achievement of the objectives set for that year and not including any discretionary bonus amounts which may otherwise be payable to other executives despite non-achievement of bonus objectives for such year, and (ii) on the date bonuses would otherwise be payable to executives under the Bonus Program. Notwithstanding anything herein or contained in the Bonus Program and/or Incentive Compensation Plan to the contrary, in the event that the Executive's employment shall terminate pursuant to Section 4.3 during any calendar year, the Executive shall be entitled to receive the Executive's bonus (if not already paid) with respect to the year immediately preceding the year of termination (if bonuses with respect to such year are payable to other executives based upon achievement of bonus objectives and not based upon discretionary amounts which may be paid to other executives despite non-achievement of bonus objectives) as and when such bonuses would otherwise be payable to executives under the Bonus Program, despite the fact that the Executive may not be actively employed on such date of payment. Additionally, the Executive shall be entitled to a bonus of $250,000 (gross), payable monthly during 2014 so long as the Executive is employed by the Company during such payment period. The foregoing bonus is intended to compensate the Executive for relocation and housing and related costs.





3.3.    Long-Term Incentive Compensation. During the Executive's period of employment with the Company hereunder, the Executive shall be considered for recommendation to the Compensation Committee, or other committee of the Board of Directors administering any long-term incentive compensation plan (“LTIP”) of the Company as from time to time in effect (the “Compensation Committee”), for long-term incentive compensation awards, to the extent implemented under the Incentive Compensation Plan, at levels and on terms consistent with the Company’s long-term incentive compensation programs and policies in effect from time to time and commensurate with the Executive’s position, as determined by the Compensation Committee (each, as so awarded by the Compensation Committee, a “Long-Term Incentive Award”). The Company’s Compensation Committee has approved for the Executive a Long-Term Incentive Award in the target amount of two-thirds of $2,000,000, which award is pro-rated based upon the Effective Date and payable in March 2015 to the extent the objectives for 2013 and 2014 under the Company’s Transitional LTIP Program have been achieved (and otherwise subject to the terms of the Transitional LTIP Program and the Incentive Compensation Plan). Additionally, the Company’s Compensation Committee has approved for the Executive a Long-Term Incentive Award in the target amount of $2,000,000 under the Company’s 2014 LTIP Program, subject to the terms and conditions of the 2014 LTIP Program, including applicable performance period and program objectives.

3.4.    Business Expenses. RCPC shall pay or reimburse the Executive for all reasonable expenses actually incurred or paid by the Executive during the Term in the performance of the Executive's services under this Agreement, subject to and in accordance with the Revlon Travel and Entertainment Policy as in effect from time to time, or such policy or policies, if any, as may succeed it.

3.5.    Vacation. Commencing in 2014, and thereafter during each year of the Term, the Executive shall be entitled to a vacation period or periods in accordance with the vacation policy of the Company as in effect from time to time, but not less than 25 days.

3.6.    Fringe Benefits. During the Term, the Executive shall be entitled to participate in those qualified and non-qualified defined benefit, defined contribution, group life insurance, medical, dental, disability and other benefit plans and programs of the Company as from time to time in effect (or their successors) generally made available to other executives of the Executive's level and in such other plans and programs and in such perquisites, as from time to time in effect, as may be generally made available to senior executives of the Company of the Executive’s level generally. Further, during the Term, the Executive will be eligible (a) to participate in Revlon’s Executive Financial Counseling and Tax Preparation Program, as from time to time in effect, or such program or programs, if any, as may succeed it, (b) to receive a personal car allowance at the rate of $30,000 per annum, under the car allowance program as in effect from time to time, or such program or programs, if any, that may succeed to it, with effect from January 1, 2014, and (c) to the use of a car provided to the Executive by the Company primarily for business purposes, through June 30, 2015 (including insurance, maintenance, gas and a driver (as respects the driver for work commutation purposes), as provided by the Company), as to which the Executive will reimburse the Company for his personal use of such Company-provided car for the period commencing January 1, 2014, as well as for certain relocation-related expenses that the Company had previously advanced to Mr. Delpani during 2014.





3.7.    Internal Revenue Code Section 409A. Section 409A of the Code (as defined in this Section 3.7, below) and/or its related rules and regulations ("Section 409A"), imposes additional taxes and interest on compensation or benefits deferred under certain "nonqualified deferred compensation plans" (as defined under the Code). These plans may include, among others, nonqualified retirement plans, bonus plans, stock option plans, employment agreements and severance agreements. The Company reserves the right to provide compensation or benefits under any such plan in amounts, at times and in a manner that minimizes taxes, interest or penalties as a result of Section 409A, including any required withholdings, and the Executive agrees to cooperate with the Company in such actions. Specifically, and without limitation of the previous sentence, if the Executive is a "specified employee," as such term is defined under Section 409A (generally, one of the Company's top 50 highest paid officers), to the extent required under Section 409A, the Company will not make any payments to the Executive under this Agreement upon a "separation from service," as such term is defined under Section 409A, until six months after the Executive's date of separation from service or, if earlier, the date of the Executive's death. Upon expiration of the six-month period, or, if earlier, the date of the Executive's death, the Company shall make a payment to the Executive (or his beneficiary or estate, if applicable) equal to the sum of all payments that would have been paid to the Executive from the date of separation from service had the Executive not been a "specified employee" through the end of the six month period or the date of death (whichever is earlier), and thereafter the Company will make all the payments at the times specified in this Agreement or applicable policy, as the case may be. In addition, the Company and the Executive agree that, for purposes of this Agreement, termination of employment (or any variation thereof) will satisfy all of the requirements of "separation from service" as defined under Section 409A. For purposes of this Agreement, the right to a series of installment payments, such as salary continuation or severance payments, shall be treated as the right to a series of separate payments and shall not be treated as a right to a single payment. For purposes of this Agreement, the term "Code" shall mean the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, including all final regulations promulgated thereunder, and any reference to a particular section of the Code shall include any provision that modifies, replaces or supersedes such section.

4.    Termination.

4.1.    Death. If the Executive shall die during the Term, the Term shall terminate and no further amounts or benefits shall be payable hereunder, other than (i) for accrued, but unpaid, Base Salary as of such date and (ii) pursuant to life insurance provided under Section 3.6.

4.2.    Disability. If during the Term the Executive shall become physically or mentally disabled, whether totally or partially, such that the Executive is unable to perform the Executive's services hereunder for (i) a period of six consecutive months or (ii)  shorter periods aggregating six months during any twelve month period, RCPC may at any time after the last day of the six consecutive months of disability or the day on which the shorter periods of disability shall have equaled an aggregate of six months, by written notice to the Executive (but before the Executive has returned to active service following such disability), terminate the Term and no further amounts or benefits shall be payable hereunder.

4.3.    Company Breach; Other Termination. The Executive shall be entitled to terminate the Term and the Executive’s employment upon 30 days’ prior written notice. Without limiting Sections 2.1, 4.1 or 4.2, RCPC shall be entitled to terminate the Term and the Executive’s




employment at any time upon 30 days’ prior written notice, for any reason. Upon termination of the Term and the Executive’s employment for any reason, the Company may elect to enforce the Executive’s non-competition covenant set forth in Section 5.2 by providing written notice of such election to the Executive, setting forth the Non-Competition Period, as defined in this Section 4.3 below, and in the event of such enforcement election, RCPC agrees, and the Executive agrees that the Company’s sole obligation arising from such termination and the sole consideration owing in exchange for the Executive’s compliance with the non-competition covenant in Section 5.2 shall be for RCPC, to make payments in lieu of Base Salary at 50% of the amounts prescribed by Section 3.1, to pay the Executive the portion, if any, of any annual bonus contemplated by Section 3.2 and to continue the Executive’s participation in the medical, dental and group life insurance plans of the Company in which the Executive was then participating as of the date of termination pursuant to Section 3.6 (in each case less amounts required by law to be withheld) for the non-competition period specified by the Company, which period may be for up to 24 months from the date of termination, as determined by the Company (such period shall be referred to as the "Non-Competition Period"), provided that (1) such benefit continuation is subject to the terms of such plans, (2) the Executive shall cease to be covered by medical and/or dental plans of the Company at such time as the Executive becomes covered by like plans of another company, (3) any bonus payments required pursuant to this Section 4.3 shall be payable as and when bonuses would otherwise be payable to executives under the Bonus Program as then in effect; and (4) the Executive shall, as a condition to receiving such benefits, execute such release, confidentiality, non-competition (consistent in all respects with the Non-Competition Agreement (as defined in Section 5.2 below)).

4.4.    Litigation Expenses. If RCPC and the Executive become involved in any action, suit or proceeding relating to the alleged breach of this Agreement by RCPC or the Executive, then if and to the extent that a final, non-appealable, judgment in such action, suit or proceeding is rendered in favor of the Executive, RCPC shall reimburse the Executive for all expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) incurred by the Executive in connection with such action, suit or proceeding or the portion thereof adjudicated in favor of the Executive.
5.    Protection of Confidential Information; Non-Competition.

5.1.    The Executive acknowledges that the Executive’s services will be unique, that they will involve the development of Company-subsidized relationships with key customers, suppliers, and service providers as well as with key Company employees and that the Executive's work for the Company will give the Executive access to highly confidential information not available to the public or competitors, including trade secrets and confidential marketing, sales, product development and other data and plans which it would be impracticable for the Company to effectively protect and preserve in the absence of this Section 5 and the disclosure or misappropriation of which could materially adversely affect the Company. Accordingly, the Executive agrees:

5.1.1.    except in the course of performing the Executive’s duties provided for in Section 1.1, not at any time, whether during or after the Executive’s employment with the Company, to divulge to any other entity or person any confidential information acquired by the Executive concerning the Company's or its affiliates' financial affairs or business processes or methods or their research, development or marketing programs or plans, any other of its or their trade secrets, any information regarding personal matters of any directors, officers, employees or agents of the Company or its affiliates or their respective family members, or any information




concerning the circumstances of the Executive’s employment and any termination of the Executive’s employment with the Company or any information regarding discussions related to any of the foregoing. The foregoing prohibitions shall include, without limitation, directly or indirectly publishing (or causing, participating in, assisting or providing any statement, opinion or information in connection with the publication of) any diary, memoir, letter, story, photograph, interview, article, essay, account or description (whether fictionalized or not) concerning any of the foregoing, publication being deemed to include any presentation or reproduction of any written, verbal or visual material in any communication medium, including any book, magazine, newspaper, theatrical production or movie, or television or radio programming or commercial or over the internet. In the event that the Executive is requested or required to make disclosure of information subject to this Section 5.1.1 under any arbitration award, court order, subpoena or other judicial process, the Executive will promptly notify RCPC, take all reasonable steps requested by RCPC to defend against the compulsory disclosure and permit RCPC, at its expense, to control with counsel of its choice any proceeding relating to the compulsory disclosure. The Executive acknowledges that all information the disclosure of which is prohibited by this section is of a confidential and proprietary character and of great value to the Company; and

5.1.2.    to deliver promptly to the Company on termination of the Executive's employment with the Company, or at any time that RCPC may so request, all memoranda, notes, records, reports, manuals, drawings, blueprints and other documents (and all copies thereof) relating to the Company's business and all property associated therewith, which the Executive may then possess or have under the Executive's control, including, without limitation, computer disks or data (including data retained on any computer), and any home office equipment or computers purchased or provided by Revlon or other materials.

5.2.    In consideration of RCPC’s employment of the Executive hereunder, and RCPC’s covenant in Section 4.3, (i) the Executive agrees to fully comply in all respects fully with the terms of the Company’s Employee Agreement as to Confidentiality and Non-Competition (the “Non-Competition Agreement”), whether or not the Executive is a signatory thereof, with the same effect as if the same were set forth herein in full, and (ii) in the event that the Executive shall resign or otherwise terminate the Executive’s employment or in the event that the Company shall terminate the Executive’s employment and, in either case, the Company elects and advises the Executive in writing that it intends to require that the Executive comply with the non-competition restrictions set forth in paragraph 9(e) of the Non-Competition Agreement during the Non-Competition Period, the Executive agrees to fully comply in all respects with such restrictions, subject only to the Company affording to the Executive the payments and benefits described in Section 4.3, notwithstanding the limitation otherwise applicable under paragraph 9(d) thereof or any other provision of the Non-Competition Agreement.

5.3.    If the Executive commits a breach of any of the provisions of Sections 5.1 or 5.2 hereof, RCPC shall have the following rights and remedies:

5.3.1.    the right and remedy to immediately terminate all further payments and benefits provided for in this Agreement, except as may otherwise be required by law in the case of qualified benefit plans;





5.3.2.    the right and remedy to have the provisions of this Agreement specifically enforced by any arbitrator or court having equity jurisdiction, it being acknowledged and agreed that any such breach will cause irreparable injury to the Company and that money damages and disgorgement of profits will not provide an adequate remedy to the Company, and, if the Executive attempts or threatens to commit a breach of any of the provisions of Sections 5.1 or 5.2, the right and remedy to be granted a preliminary and permanent injunction in any court or arbitration having equity jurisdiction against the Executive committing the attempted or threatened breach (it being agreed that each of the rights and remedies enumerated above shall be independent of the others and shall be severally enforceable, and that all of such rights and remedies shall be in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other rights and remedies available to the Company under law or in equity); and

5.3.3.    the right and remedy to require the Executive to account for and pay over to the Company all compensation, profits, monies, accruals, increments or other benefits (collectively "Benefits") derived or received by the Executive as the result of any transactions constituting a breach of any of the provisions of Sections 5.1 or 5.2 hereof, and the Executive hereby agrees to account for and pay over such Benefits as directed by RCPC.

5.4.    If any of the covenants contained in Sections 5.1, 5.2 or 5.3, or any part thereof, hereafter are construed to be invalid or unenforceable, the same shall not affect the remainder of the covenant or covenants, which shall be given full effect, without regard to the invalid portions.

5.5.    If any of the covenants contained in Sections 5.1 or 5.2, or any part thereof, are held to be unenforceable because of the duration of such provision or the area covered thereby, the parties agree that the arbitrator making such determination shall have the power to reduce the duration and/or area of such provision so as to be enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law and, in its reduced form, said provision shall then be enforceable.

5.6.    The parties hereto intend to and do hereby confer jurisdiction to enforce the covenants contained in Sections 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3 upon the arbitrator in the arbitration provided for in Section 11.1 below The parties hereby direct the arbitrator that it is the intention of the parties hereto that these covenants be enforced within the broadest possible business and geographic scope and duration since the Executive has global responsibility for the Company’s business.

5.7.    Any termination of the Term or the Executive’s employment shall have no effect on the continuing operation of this Section 5.





6.    Inventions and Patents.

6.1.    The Executive agrees that all processes, technologies and inventions (collectively, "Inventions"), including new contributions, improvements, ideas and discoveries, whether patentable or not, conceived, developed, invented or made by the Executive during the Term shall belong to the Company, provided that such Inventions grew out of the Executive's work with the Company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates, are related in any manner to the business (commercial or experimental) of the Company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or are conceived or made on the Company's time or with the use of the Company's facilities or materials. The Executive shall further: (a) promptly disclose such Inventions to the Company; (b) assign to the Company, without additional compensation, all patent and other rights to such Inventions for the United States and foreign countries; (c) sign all papers necessary to carry out the foregoing; and (d) give testimony in support of the Executive's inventorship. “Inventions” shall not include managerial concepts and skills generally applied by experienced senior executives. The Executive has delivered to the Company a confidential schedule of intellectual property he had prior to joining the Company.

6.2.    If any Invention as defined in Section 6.1 above is described in a patent application or is disclosed to third parties, directly or indirectly, by the Executive within two years after the termination of the Executive's employment with the Company, it is to be presumed that the Invention was conceived or made during the Term.

6.3.    The Executive agrees that the Executive will not assert any rights to any Invention as having been made or acquired by the Executive prior to the date of this Agreement, except for Inventions, if any, disclosed to the Company in writing prior to the date hereof.

7.    Intellectual Property.

The Company shall be the sole owner of all the products and proceeds of the Executive's services hereunder which constitute “Inventions” as defined in Section 6.1 above, including, but not limited to, all materials, ideas, concepts, formats, suggestions, developments, arrangements, packages, programs and other intellectual properties that the Executive may acquire, obtain, develop or create in connection with or during the Term, free and clear of any claims by the Executive (or anyone claiming under the Executive) of any kind or character whatsoever (other than the Executive's right to receive payments hereunder). The Executive shall, at the request of RCPC, execute such assignments, certificates or other instruments as RCPC may from time to time deem necessary or desirable to evidence, establish, maintain, perfect, protect, enforce or defend the Company’s right, title or interest in or to any such properties.

8.    Revlon Code of Business Conduct.

In consideration of RCPC's execution of this Agreement, the Executive agrees in all respects to fully comply with the then current terms of the Revlon Code of Business Conduct, a current copy of which is annexed at Schedule A, whether or not the Executive is a signatory thereof, with the same effect as if the same were set forth herein in full.





9.    Indemnification.

Subject to the terms, conditions and limitations of its by-laws and applicable Delaware law, RCPC will defend and indemnify the Executive against all costs, charges and expenses incurred or sustained by the Executive in connection with any action, suit or proceeding to which the Executive may be made a party, brought by any shareholder of the Company directly or derivatively or by any third party by reason of any act or omission of the Executive as an officer, director or employee of the Company or of any subsidiary or affiliate of the Company. The Executive shall be covered by the Directors and Officers insurance coverage as is maintained by Revlon, Inc. and RCPC for its directors and officers including, to the extent provided under such Directors and Officers insurance, coverage for actions, suits or proceedings brought after he ceases employment with RCPC but relating to periods during the Executive’s employment with RCPC.

All notices, requests, consents and other communications required or permitted to be given hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given if delivered personally, sent by overnight courier or mailed first class, postage prepaid, by registered or certified mail (notices mailed shall be deemed to have been given on the date mailed), provided that all notices to the Company shall also be sent simultaneously by email, as follows (or to such other address as either party shall designate by notice in writing to the other in accordance herewith or in the case of the Company, to its then current principal office address):

11.    General.

11.1.     Arbitration.  This Agreement shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New York applicable to agreements made between residents thereof and to be performed entirely in New York. Any dispute arising out of or relating to your employment with the Company, any termination of employment or this Agreement, including without limitation any dispute relating to any law regulating the employment relationship or the Agreement’s formation, validity, breach or termination, shall be finally resolved by arbitration in accordance with the International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution Rules for Non-Administered Arbitration (the “CPR Rules”) by a sole arbitrator appointed in accordance with the CPR Rules.  The arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§1 et seq., and judgment upon the arbitrator’s award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof.




The place of arbitration shall be New York County, New York and shall occur in the English language.  Either party may apply to any appropriate court for interim relief in aid of arbitration or to obtain complete relief following an award. 

11.2.    The section headings contained herein are for reference purposes only and shall not in any way affect the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.

11.3.    This Agreement sets forth the entire agreement and understanding of the parties relating to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior agreements, arrangements and understandings, written or oral, relating to the subject matter hereof including any offer letter or term sheets. No representation, promise or inducement has been made by either party that is not embodied in this Agreement, and neither party shall be bound by or liable for any alleged representation, promise or inducement not so set forth.

11.4.    This Agreement shall be binding upon the parties hereto and their successors and permitted assignees. This Agreement, and the Executive's rights and obligations hereunder, may not be assigned by the Executive, nor may the Executive pledge, encumber or anticipate any payments or benefits due hereunder, by operation of law or otherwise. RCPC may assign its rights, together with its obligations, hereunder (i) to any affiliate or (ii) to a third party in connection with any sale, transfer or other disposition of all or substantially all of any business to which the Executive's services are then principally devoted, provided that no assignment pursuant to clause (ii) shall relieve RCPC from its obligations hereunder to the extent the same are not timely discharged by such assignee.

11.5.    This Agreement may be amended, modified, superseded, canceled, renewed or extended and the terms or covenants hereof may be waived, only by a written instrument executed by both of the parties hereto, or in the case of a waiver, by the party waiving compliance. The failure of either party at any time or times to require performance of any provision hereof shall in no manner affect the right at a later time to enforce the same. No waiver by either party of the breach of any term or covenant contained in this Agreement, whether by conduct or otherwise, in any one or more instances, shall be deemed to be, or construed as, a further or continuing waiver of any such breach, or a waiver of the breach of any other term or covenant contained in this Agreement.

11.6.    This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original but all of which together will constitute one and the same instrument.

12.     Subsidiaries and Affiliates. As used herein, the term "subsidiary" shall mean any corporation or other business entity controlled directly or indirectly by the corporation or other business entity in question, and the term "affiliate" shall mean and include any corporation or other business entity directly or indirectly controlling, controlled by or under common control with the corporation or other business entity in question.





13.    Change of Control Payments and Benefits.

13.1.    Change of Control.

(a)        Extension of Term. In the event of any Change of Control, as defined on Schedule B, the Term of this Agreement shall be automatically extended for 24 months from the effective date (the "COC Effective Date") of any such Change of Control (the "Extended Term").

(b)        Benefit Continuation; Bonus and Salary Payment. If, during the Extended Term, the Executive terminates the Term of his employment for "COC Good Reason" (as defined below in sub-clause (b)(iii)) or if the Company terminates the Term of the Executive's employment other than for "Cause" (as defined below)—

(i) to the extent available under applicable law and the Company's group benefit programs, the Company shall provide, for a period of two years from such termination date, all fringe benefits then provided to the Executive, including, without limitation, qualified and non-qualified defined benefit, defined contribution, insurance, medical, dental, disability, automobile, financial planning, tax preparation and other benefit plans and programs of the Company as from time to time in effect (or their successors) in which the Executive participated on the COC Effective Date, provided that the Executive shall be required to pay the “COBRA rate” for relevant insurance coverage (and the Company shall reimburse the Executive monthly an amount equal to the COBRA rate). To the extent that such benefits are not or cease being available under applicable law or the Company's group benefit programs, such benefits cease to be equivalent to, or better than, the benefits under the plans and programs in effect on the COC Effective Date, or such benefits would trigger a tax under Section 409A, the Company shall immediately pay to the Executive in a cash lump-sum payment an amount equal to the value (based on the then-current cost to the Company) of such benefits (or the remaining eligible portion thereof, as the case may be) and shall have no further obligation to continue to provide the benefits under this Section;

(ii) the Company shall immediately pay to the Executive in a cash lump-sum payment two times the sum of (A) the greater of the Executive's Base Salary in effect on (1) the COC Effective Date or (2) such termination date, plus (B) the average amount of the gross annual bonus amounts earned by the Executive referred to in Section 3.2 of this this Agreement over the five calendar years preceding such termination (or, if employed by the Company for less than five calendar years, the actual number of calendar years for which the Executive was eligible to receive an annual bonus payment).

(iii) "COC Good Reason" means, for purposes of this sub-clause (b) only (and not for any other purpose or reason under this Agreement): (A) a material adverse change in the Executive's job responsibilities; (B) any reduction in the Executive's Base Salary; (C) any reduction in the Executive's annual bonus opportunity; (D) any reduction in the Executive's aggregate value of benefits; or (E) the Executive's being required by the Company to relocate beyond a 50 mile radius of the Executive's then current residence.





(iv) The Executive shall have no duty to mitigate by seeking other employment or otherwise and no compensation earned by the Executive from other employment, a consultancy or otherwise shall reduce any payments provided for under this Section 13.1.

(v) For purposes of this Section 13, as used herein, the term “Cause” shall mean gross neglect by the Executive of the Executive's duties hereunder, conviction of the Executive of any felony, conviction of the Executive of any lesser crime or offense involving the property of the Company or any of its affiliates, misconduct by the Executive in connection with the performance of the Executive's duties hereunder or other material breach by the Executive of this Agreement (specifically including, without limitation, Section 1.4), any breach of the Revlon Code of Business Conduct, including, without limitation, the Code of Ethics for Senior Financial Officers, or the Non-Competition Agreement, or any other conduct on the part of the Executive which would make the Executive's continued employment by the Company prejudicial in any material respect to the best interests of the Company. If and to the extent any occurrence of Cause is capable of cure in the good faith determination of the Company, the Company shall provide notice of same to the Executive, who shall then have ten days to cure such event of Cause to the satisfaction of the Company, it being acknowledged and agreed that the Company’s good faith determination as to whether a Cause event is subject to cure shall be final and binding upon the parties.

(c) Equity Compensation; Long-Term Incentive Compensation In the event of any Change of Control, (1) all then unvested restricted shares held by the Executive shall immediately vest and be fully exercisable and all restrictions shall lapse; and (2) all unpaid Long-Term Incentive Awards shall be treated in accordance with the terms and provisions of the Incentive Compensation Plan, and any applicable long-term incentive compensation program adopted thereunder in which the Executive participated.

(d) Governing Provision. In the event of any conflict between this Section 13 and any other section or provision of this Agreement, the section which provides the Executive with the most favored treatment in the event of a Change of Control shall govern and prevail.

(e) Termination after the Extended Term. In the event the Executive remains employed after the Extended Term, the provisions of this Agreement, including those as to termination of employment but other than Article 13, shall apply.

13.2
Section 280G.

(a) If the aggregate of all amounts and benefits due to the Executive under this Agreement or any other plan, program, agreement or arrangement of the Company or any of its Affiliates, which, if received by the Executive in full, would constitute “parachute payments,” as such term is defined in and under Section 280G of the Code (collectively, “Change of Control Benefits”), reduced by all Federal, state and local taxes applicable thereto, including the excise tax imposed pursuant to Section 4999 of the Code, is less than the amount the Executive would receive, after all such applicable taxes, if the Executive received aggregate Change of Control Benefits equal to an amount which is $1.00 less than three times the Executive's “base amount,” as defined in and determined under Section 280G of the Code, then such Change of Control Benefits shall be reduced or eliminated to the extent necessary so that the Change of Control Benefits received by the Executive




will not constitute parachute payments. If a reduction in the Change of Control Benefits is necessary, reduction shall occur in the following order unless the Executive elects in writing a different order, subject to the Company’s consent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld): first, a reduction of cash payments not attributable to equity awards which vest on an accelerated basis; second, the cancellation of accelerated vesting of stock awards; third, the reduction of employee benefits; and fourth, a reduction in any other “parachute payments.” If acceleration of vesting of stock award compensation is to be reduced, such acceleration of vesting shall be cancelled in the reverse order of the date of grant of the Executive's stock awards unless the Executive elects in writing a different order for cancellation.

(b) It is possible that after the determinations and selections made pursuant to Section 13.2(a) above the Executive will receive Change of Control Benefits that are, in the aggregate, either more or less than the amounts contemplated by Section 13.2(a) above (hereafter referred to as an “Excess Payment” or “Underpayment,” respectively). If there is an Excess Payment, the Executive shall promptly repay the Company an amount consistent with this Section 13.2. If there is an Underpayment, the Company shall pay the Executive an amount consistent with this Section 13.2.

(c) The determinations with respect to this Section 13.2 shall be made by an independent auditor (the “Auditor”) compensated by the Company. The Auditor shall be the Company’s regular independent auditor, unless the Executive objects to the use of that firm, in which event the Auditor shall be a nationally-recognized United States public accounting firm chosen by the Company and approved by the Executive (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed).
