would have vested based on your continued employment through the vesting date immediately following the date of termination of your employment equal to the number of Shares with respect to which the Option would vest as of such next vesting date
multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of monthly anniversaries that have occurred, as measured from the immediately preceding vesting date of the Option (or, if none, since the date of grant of the Option), to the date of
termination of your employment, and the denominator of which is the number of monthly anniversary dates between such immediately preceding vesting date (or, if none, such date of grant) and the first vesting date immediately following the date of
termination of your employment.

Option shall become vested and exercisable as of the Change in Control, provided you have remained in continuous employment with PRGX from the Grant Date until the time of the Change in Control. Accordingly, termination of your employment after the
