LONG TERM INCENTIVE RESTRICTED STOCK AGREEMENT

PURSUANT TO THE FMC TECHNOLOGIES, INC.

INCENTIVE COMPENSATION AND STOCK PLAN

 

This Agreement is made as of the          day of                     , 200     (the “Grant Date”) by FMC TECHNOLOGIES, INC., a Delaware corporation, (the “Company”) and XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (the “Employee”).

 

In 2001, the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) adopted the FMC Technologies, Inc. Incentive Compensation and Stock Plan (the “Plan”). The Plan, as it may be amended and continued, is incorporated by reference and made a part of this Agreement and will control the rights and obligations of the Company and the Employee under this Agreement. Except as otherwise provided, capitalized terms have the meaning provided in the Plan. To the extent there is a conflict between the Plan and this Agreement, the Plan will prevail.

 

The Compensation Committee of the Board (the “Committee”) determined that it would be to the competitive advantage and interest of the Company and its stockholders to grant an award of restricted stock to the Employee as an inducement to remain in the service of the Company or one of its affiliates (collectively, the “Employer”), and as an incentive for increased efforts during such service.

 

The Committee, on behalf of the Company, grants to the Employee an award of XXXXXXXXXXX shares of restricted stock (the “Restricted Shares”) of the Company’s common stock par value of $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”) upon the following terms and conditions:

 

1. Vesting. The Restricted Shares will vest and be immediately transferable on XXXXXXXXXX (the “Vesting Date”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Restricted Shares will vest and be immediately transferable in the event of the Employee’s death or Disability, or a Change in Control of the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of the Employee’s retirement under the Company’s pension plan on or after age 62, the Restricted Shares will vest and be immediately transferable on the Vesting Date. All Restricted Shares will be forfeited upon termination of the Employee’s employment with the Employer before the Vesting Date for a reason other than death, Disability or retirement under the Company’s pension plan on or after age 62.

 

2. Adjustment. The Committee may make equitable substitutions or adjustments in the Restricted Shares as it determines to be appropriate in the event of any corporate event or transaction such as a stock split, merger, consolidation, separation, including a spin-off or other distribution of stock or property of the Company, reorganization or any partial or complete liquidation of the Company.

3. Rights as Stockholder.

 

(a) The Restricted Shares will be issued in the form of a book entry registration. The Company may issue a stock certificate (the “Certificate”) in the Employee’s name representing the Restricted Shares prior to the Vesting Date, in which case, the Employee will execute a stock power in favor of the Company, the Certificate will be held by the Secretary of the Company (the “Escrow Agent”) and will be imprinted with a legend stating that the Restricted Shares represented by the Certificate may not be sold, exchanged, transferred, pledged, hypothecated or otherwise disposed of except in accordance with this Agreement. The Escrow Agent will hold the Certificate until the Vesting Date. As soon as practicable after the Vesting Date the Company will issue unlegended Certificates for Common Stock to the Employee and the Employee will surrender any legended Certificates representing the Restricted Shares, if applicable.

 

(b) Prior to the Vesting Date, the Employee may not vote, sell, exchange, transfer, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise dispose of any of the Restricted Shares. Notwithstanding the foregoing the Employee may prior to the Vesting Date pledge Restricted Shares as security for a loan from the Company to obtain funds to pay the option price for any stock options granted under the Plan. The Restricted Shares have Dividend Equivalent Rights.

 

4. No Limitation on Rights of the Company. The granting of Restricted Shares will not in any way affect the right or power of the Company to make adjustments, reclassifications or changes in its capital or business structure or to merge, consolidate, reincorporate, dissolve, liquidate or sell or transfer all or any part of its business or assets.

 

5. Employment. Nothing in this Agreement or in the Plan will be construed as constituting a commitment, guarantee, agreement or understanding of any kind or nature that the Employer will continue to employ the Employee, or as affecting in any way the right of the Employer to terminate the employment of the Employee at any time.

 

6. Government Regulation. The Company’s obligation to deliver Common Stock following the Vesting Date will be subject to all applicable laws, rules and regulations and to such approvals by any governmental agencies or national securities exchanges as may be required.

 

7. Withholding. The Employer will comply with all applicable withholding tax laws, and will be entitled to take any action necessary to effectuate such compliance. The Company may withhold a portion of the Common Stock to which the Employee or beneficiary otherwise would be entitled equivalent in value to the taxes required to be withheld, determined based upon the Fair Market Value of the Common Stock. For purposes of withholding, Fair Market Value shall be equal to the opening price of the Common Stock on the Vesting Date, or, if the Vesting Date is not a business day, the next business day immediately following the Vesting Date.
