Section 2. Administration.
The Plan is administered by the Committee, which has the power to interpret the Plan and to adopt such rules and guidelines for carrying out the Plan as it may deem appropriate. The Committee has the authority to adopt such modifications, procedures and subplans as may be necessary or desirable to comply with the laws, regulations, compensation practices and tax and accounting principles of the countries in which the Mondelēz Group may operate to assure the viability of the benefits of Grants made to individuals employed in such countries and to meet the objectives of the Plan.
Subject to the terms of the Plan, the Committee has the authority to determine those employees eligible to receive Grants and Awards and the amount, type and terms of each Grant or Award and to establish and administer any Performance Goals applicable to such Grants or Awards. Subject to the terms of the Plan, the Committee has the authority to recommend to the Board those Non-Management Directors eligible to receive Grants or Awards and the amount, type and terms of each Grant or Award. The Committee may delegate its authority and power under the Plan to one or more officers of the Company, subject to guidelines prescribed by the Committee, but only with respect to Participants who are not Non-Management Directors or executive officers of the Company and/or otherwise subject to either Section 16 of the Exchange Act or Section 162(m) of the Code.
Any determination made by the Committee or by one or more officers pursuant to delegated authority in accordance with the provisions of the Plan with respect to any Grant or Award is made in the sole discretion of the Committee or such delegate, and all decisions made by the Committee or any appropriately designated officer pursuant to the provisions of the Plan are final and binding on all persons, including the Company and Plan Participants.
Section 3. Eligibility.
Salaried employees of the Mondelēz Group who are responsible for or contribute to the management, growth and profitability of the business of the Mondelēz Group are eligible for Grants and Awards under the Plan.

Stock Options intending to qualify as Incentive Stock Options may only be granted to employees of the Company and its subsidiaries, within the meaning of the Code, as selected by the Committee.
Section 4. Common Stock Subject to the Plan.
Common Stock Available. The total number of shares of Common Stock reserved and available for distribution pursuant to the Plan is 243,691,747 shares, which consists of 150,000,000 shares that were approved in 2005, 18,000,000 shares that were approved in 2009, 75,000,000 shares that were added as of the May 21, 2014 Amendment and Restatement and 691,747 shares that remain available for issuance under the Prior Plan as of
|March 14, 2014. An amount not to exceed 50% of the shares of Common Stock issuable under the plan as of May 21, 2014 may be issued pursuant to Grants of Restricted Stock, Restricted Stock Units, Deferred Stock Units or Other Stock-Based Grants, and Incentive Awards, except that Other Stock-Based Grants with values based on Spread Values are not included in this limitation; and except further, that Grants of Restricted Stock, Restricted Stock Units, Deferred Stock Units and Other Stock-Based Grants, and Incentive Awards made prior to May 21, 2014 are not included in this limitation. Except as otherwise provided in this Plan, any Grant made under the Prior Plan continues to be subject to the terms and conditions of the Prior Plan and the applicable Grant agreement. Any adjustments, substitutions, or other actions that may be made or taken in accordance with Section 4(b) below in connection with the corporate transactions or events described in that section, will, to the extent applied to outstanding Grants made under the Prior Plan, be deemed made from shares reserved for issuance under the Prior Plan, rather than this Plan, pursuant to the authority of the Board under the Prior Plan to make adjustments and substitutions in such circumstances to the aggregate number and kind of shares reserved for issuance under the Prior Plan and to Grants made under the Prior Plan. To the extent any Grant under this Plan is exercised, cashed out, terminates, expires or is forfeited without a payment being made to the Participant in the form of Common Stock, the shares subject to the Grant that were not used will be available for distribution in connection with Grants under this Plan; provided, however, that any shares which are available again for Grants under this Plan will count toward the limit described in Section 5(b)(i). If a SAR or similar Grant based on Spread Value with respect to shares of Common Stock is exercised, the full number of shares of Common Stock with respect to which the Grant is measured will nonetheless be deemed distributed for purposes of determining the maximum number of shares remaining available for delivery under the Plan. Similarly, any shares of Common Stock that are withheld by the Company or tendered by a Participant (1) as full or partial payment of withholding or other taxes owed by the Participant related to an outstanding Stock Option or SAR or (2) as payment for the exercise or conversion price of a Stock Option, SAR or similar Grant based on Spread Value under the Plan will be deemed distributed for purposes of determining the maximum number of shares remaining available for delivery under the Plan.|
|(b)||Adjustments for Certain Corporate Transactions|
|(i)||In the event of any merger, share exchange, reorganization, consolidation, recapitalization, reclassification, distribution, stock dividend, stock split, reverse stock split, split-up, spin-off, issuance of rights or warrants or other similar transaction or event affecting the Common Stock in any case after adoption of the Plan by the Board, the Committee will make any adjustments or substitutions with respect to Grants made under the Plan and the Prior Plan as it deems appropriate to reflect the occurrence of such event, including, but not limited to, adjustments (A) to the aggregate number and kind of securities reserved for issuance under the Plan, (B) to the limits set forth in Section 5, (C) to the Performance Goals or Performance Cycles of any outstanding Grants, and (D) to the number and kind of securities subject to outstanding Grants and, if applicable, the grant or exercise price or Spread Value of outstanding Grants. In addition, the Committee may make a Grant in substitution for incentive awards, stock grants, stock options or similar grants made to an individual who is, previously was, or becomes an employee of the Mondelēz Group in connection with a transaction described in this Section 4(b)(i). Notwithstanding any provision of the Plan (other than the limitation set forth in Section 4(a)), the Committee has full discretion to determine the terms of any Grants made in substitution.|
|(A)||In connection with any of the events described in Section 4(b)(i), the Committee has the authority with respect to Grants made under the Plan and the Prior Plan (x) to issue Grants (including Stock Options, SARs, and Other Stock-Based Grants) with a grant price that is less than Fair Market Value on the date of grant in order to preserve existing gain under any similar type of previous grant made by the Company or another entity to the extent that the existing gain would otherwise be diminished without payment of adequate compensation to the holder of the grant for such diminution, and (y) except as may otherwise be required under an applicable Grant agreement, to cancel or adjust the terms of an outstanding Grant as appropriate to reflect the substitution for the outstanding grant of equivalent value made by another entity.|
In connection with a spin-off or similar corporate transaction, the Committee also has the authority with respect to Grants made under the Plan and the Prior Plan to make adjustments described in this
|Section 4(b) that may include, but are not limited to, (x) the imposition of restrictions on any distribution with respect to Restricted Stock or similar Grants and (y) the substitution of comparable Stock Options to purchase the stock of another entity or SARs, Restricted Stock Units, Deferred Stock Units or Other Stock-Based Grants denominated in the securities of another entity, which may be settled in the form of cash, Common Stock, stock of such other entity, or other securities or property, as determined by the Committee; and, in the event of such a substitution, references in this Plan and the Prior Plan and in the applicable Grant agreements thereunder to Common Stock or Stock will be deemed to also refer to the securities of the other entity where appropriate.|
|(iii)||In connection with any of the events described in Section 4(b)(i), with respect to Grants made under the Plan and the Prior Plan, the Committee is also authorized to provide for the payment of any outstanding Grants in cash, including, but not limited to, payment of cash in lieu of any fractional shares, provided that no such payment fails to comply with the requirements of Section 409A of the Code to the extent that law applies to the recipient of the cash payment.|
|(iv)||In the event of any conflict between this Section 4(b) and other provisions of the Plan or the Prior Plan, the provisions of this section control. Each Participant who receives a Grant under the Plan is deemed to acknowledge and consent to the Committees ability to adjust Grants under the Prior Plan in a manner consistent with this Section 4(b).|
Section 5. Grants and Awards.
|(a)||General. The types of Grants and Awards that may be made under the Plan are described below. Grants and Awards may be made singly, in combination or in tandem with other Grants and/or Awards. All Grant agreements are incorporated in and constitute part of the Plan.|
|(i)||Stock Options. A Grant of a Stock Option represents the right to purchase a share of Stock at a predetermined grant price. Stock Options granted under the Plan may be in the form of Incentive Stock Options or Nonqualified Stock Options, as specified in the Grant agreement but no Stock Option designated as an Incentive Stock Option will be invalid in the event that it fails to qualify as an Incentive Stock Option. The term of each Stock Option will be stated in the Grant agreement, but no Stock Option will be exercisable more than ten years after the grant date. The grant price per share of Common Stock purchasable under a Stock Option may not be less than 100% of the Fair Market Value on the date of grant, except as permitted by Section 4(b)(ii)(A). Subject to the applicable Grant agreement, Stock Options may only be exercised, in whole or in part, by following the administrative procedures applicable to the exercise of Stock Options as are periodically communicated to Participants. If the exercise requires payment for the shares exercised (as well as applicable taxes), payment must be received in accordance with applicable payment requirements. Unless otherwise determined by the Committee, payment in full or in part may also be made in the form of Common Stock already owned by the Participant valued at Fair Market Value on the day preceding the date of exercise or shares of Common Stock otherwise issuable upon such exercise.|
|(ii)||Stock Appreciation Right. A Grant of a SAR represents the right to receive a cash payment, a share of Common Stock, or both (as determined by the Committee), with a value equal to the Spread Value on the date the SAR is exercised. The grant price of a SAR will be stated in the applicable Grant agreement and will not be less than 100% of the Fair Market Value on the date of grant, except as permitted by Section 4(b)(ii)(A). Subject to the terms of the applicable Grant agreement, a SAR will be exercisable, in whole or in part, by following the administrative procedures applicable to the exercise of SARs as are periodically communicated to Participants, but no SAR may be exercisable more than ten years after the Grant date.|
|(iii)||Other Stock-Based Grant. An Other Stock-Based Grant is a Grant, other than an a Stock Option, SAR, Restricted Stock, Restricted Stock Units, or Deferred Stock Unit, that is denominated in, valued in whole or in part by reference to, or otherwise based on or related to, Common Stock. The grant, purchase, exercise, exchange or conversion of Other Stock-Based Grants made under this subsection (iii) will be on such terms and conditions and by such methods as may be specified by the Committee. Where the value of an Other Stock-Based Grant is based on the Spread Value, the grant price for such a Grant will not be less than 100% of the Fair Market Value on the date of Grant.|
|(iv)||Restricted Stock. A Grant of Restricted Stock is a share of Common Stock that is subject to forfeiture during the Restricted Period upon such conditions as may be stated in the applicable Grant agreement. Except as may be provided in the applicable Grant agreement, during the Restricted Period:|
|(A)||Restricted Stock may not be sold, assigned, transferred, pledged or otherwise encumbered; and|
|(B)||A Participant will have all the rights of a holder of Common Stock with respect to the Restricted Stock.|
|(v)||Restricted Stock Unit or Deferred Stock Unit. A Grant of a Restricted Stock Unit or a Deferred Stock Unit represents the right to receive a share of Common Stock, cash, or both (as determined by the Committee) upon satisfaction of such conditions as may be set forth in the applicable Grant agreement. Except as may be provided in the applicable Grant agreement, neither Restricted Stock Units nor Deferred Stock Units may be sold, assigned, transferred, pledged or otherwise encumbered during the Restricted Period. Except as may be provided in the applicable Grant agreement, a Participant will not have any of the rights of a holder of Common Stock with respect to Restricted Stock Units or Deferred Stock Units unless and until shares of Common Stock are actually delivered in satisfaction of the restrictions and other conditions of such Restricted Stock Units or Deferred Stock Units.|
|(vi)||Incentive Awards. An Incentive Award is a performance-based Award that is expressed in U.S. currency or Common Stock or any combination of the two. Incentive Awards may either be Annual Incentive Awards or Long-Term Incentive Grants.|
|(b)||Maximum Grants and Awards. Subject to the exercise of the Committees authority pursuant to Section 4:|
|(i)||The total number of shares of Common Stock subject to Stock Options and SARs granted during any calendar year to any Participant may not exceed 3,000,000 shares.|
|(ii)||The total amount of any Annual Incentive Award awarded to any Participant with respect to any Performance Cycle, taking into account the cash and the Fair Market Value of any Common Stock payable with respect to such Award, may not exceed $10,000,000.|
|(iii)||The total amount of any Long-Term Incentive Grant made to any Participant with respect to any Performance Cycle may not exceed 400,000 shares of Common Stock multiplied by the number of years in the Performance Cycle or, in the case of Grants expressed in currency, $8,000,000 multiplied by the number of years in the Performance Cycle. The maximum in this paragraph will be reduced pro-rata for any Participant who is not a Participant for the entire Performance Cycle.|
|(iv)||No Grant of Restricted Stock, Restricted Stock Units, Deferred Stock Units, or Other Stock-Based Grants may be made in excess of 1,000,000 shares of Common Stock to any Participant in a calendar year, except that Other Stock-Based Grants with values based on Spread Values are not subject to this limitation.|

|(c)||Performance-Based Grants. Grants made under the Plan may be performance-based through the application of Performance Goals and Performance Cycles.|
|(d)||Adjustment of Performance-Based Compensation. Awards that are intended to qualify as performance-based compensation under Section 162(m) of the Code may not be adjusted upward. The Committee retains the discretion to adjust such Awards downward, either on a formulaic or discretionary basis or any combination, as the Committee determines, in its sole discretion.|
Evaluation of Performance. The Committee may provide in any Grant intended to qualify as performance-based compensation for purposes of Section 162(m) of the Code that any evaluation of performance under the applicable Performance Goal(s) may include or exclude the impact, if any, on reported financial results of any of the following events that occurs during a Performance Cycle: (a) asset write-downs; (b) litigation or claim judgments or settlements; (c) changes in tax laws, accounting principles or other laws or provisions; (d) reorganization or restructuring programs; (e) acquisitions or divestitures; (f) foreign exchange gains and losses; and (g) gains and losses that are treated as extraordinary items under Financial Accounting Standard No. 145 (Accounting Standards Codification 225). To the extent such inclusions or exclusions affect Grants to
|covered employees (as defined in Section 162(m) of the Code), they must be prescribed in a form that meets the requirements of Section 162(m) of the Code for deductibility.|
|(f)||Vesting. Grants made under the Plan will vest at such time or times as may be determined by the Committee; provided, however, that no condition relating to the vesting of a Grant and/or Award that is based upon Performance Goals may be based on a Performance Cycle of less than one year, and no condition that is based upon continued employment or the passage of time alone may provide for vesting of a Grant more rapidly than in installments over three years from the date the Grant is made, except (i) upon the death, disability or retirement of the Participant, in each case as specified in the Grant agreement (ii) upon a Change in Control, as specified in Section 6 of the Plan, (iii) for any Award paid in cash, (iv) for any Grants made to Non-Management Directors, and (v) for up to 12,184,587 (equal to 5% of the amount of shares of Common Stock subject to the Plan) shares of Common Stock that may be subject to Grants without any minimum vesting period.|
Section 6. Change in Control Provisions.
|(a)||Impact of Event. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Plan to the contrary, in the event of a Change in Control (as defined below in Section 6(b)):|
|(i)||If, and to the extent that outstanding Grants, other than Incentive Awards, under the Plan (A) are assumed by the successor corporation (or affiliate thereto) or (B) are replaced with equity grants that preserve the existing value of the Grants at the time of the Change in Control and provide for subsequent payout in accordance with a vesting schedule, as applicable, that is the same or more favorable to the Participants than the vesting schedule applicable to the Grants, then all of these Grants or substitute grants will remain outstanding and be governed by their respective terms and the provisions of the Plan subject to Section 6(a)(iv) below.|
|(ii)||If, and to the extent that outstanding Grants, other than Incentive Awards, under the Plan are not assumed or replaced in accordance with Section 6(a)(i) above, then upon the Change in Control the following treatment (referred to as Change-in-Control Treatment) will apply to these Grants: (A) outstanding Grants of Stock Options and SARs will immediately vest and become exercisable; and (B) the restrictions and other conditions applicable to outstanding Restricted Stock, Restricted Stock Units, Deferred Stock Units and Other Stock-Based Grants, including vesting requirements, will immediately lapse, and these grants will be free of all restrictions.|
|(iii)||If, and to the extent that outstanding Grants under the Plan are not assumed or replaced in accordance with Section 6(a)(i) above, then in connection with the application of the Change-in-Control Treatment stated in Section 6(a)(ii) above, the Board may, in its sole discretion, provide for cancellation of such outstanding Grants at the time of the Change in Control in which case a payment of cash, property or a combination thereof will be made to each affected Participant upon the consummation of the Change in Control that is determined by the Board in its sole discretion and that is at least equal to the excess (if any) of the value of the consideration that would be received in such Change in Control by the holders of the securities of Mondelēz International, Inc. relating to such Grants over the exercise or purchase price (if any) for such Grants.|
|(iv)||If, and to the extent that outstanding Grants are assumed or replaced in accordance with Section 6(a)(i) above and (A) other than with respect to a Non-Management Director, a Participants employment with, or performance of services for, the Mondelēz Group is terminated by the Mondelēz Group for any reasons other than Cause or, by such Participant eligible to participate in the Mondelēz International, Inc. Change in Control Plan for Key Executives, for Good Reason, in each case, within the two-year period commencing on the Change in Control, or (B) with respect to a Non-Management Director, such Non-Management Directors service as a member of the Board ceases for any reason within the one-year period commencing on the Change in Control, then, as of the date of such Participants termination, the Change-in-Control Treatment stated in Section 6(a)(ii) above will apply to all assumed or replaced Grants of such Participant then outstanding.|
|(v)||Outstanding Stock Options or SARs that are assumed or replaced in accordance with Section 6(a)(i) may be exercised by the Participant in accordance with the applicable terms and conditions stated in the applicable Grant agreement or elsewhere; provided, however, that Stock Options or SARs that become exercisable in accordance with Section 6(a)(iv) may be exercised until the expiration of the original full term of the Stock Option or SAR notwithstanding the other original terms and conditions of such Grant.|
|(vi)||Any Incentive Awards relating to Performance Cycles completed prior to the year in which the Change in Control occurs that have been earned but not paid will become immediately payable in cash upon the Change in Control. In addition, each Participant who is eligible for an Incentive Award for any then current Performance Cycle will be deemed to have earned a pro rata Incentive Award equal to the product of (A) such Participants target award opportunity for such Performance Cycle, and (B) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of full or partial months that have elapsed since the beginning of such Performance Cycle to the date on which the Change in Control occurs, and the denominator of which is the total number of months in such Performance Cycle, and such amount will become immediately payable in cash upon the Change in Control.|
|(vii)||Except as otherwise specified in a Grant agreement, any of the foregoing Change in Control provisions that change the timing of payment of an Award will not apply to a Grant subject to Section 409A of the Code unless such change is permissible under and consistent with Section 409A of the Code without the imposition of additional taxes and penalties under Section 409A of the Code. For the avoidance of doubt, the foregoing applies to all Grants made under the Plan regardless of when made.|
