Exhibit 10.3
Employee Form of Agreement
     THIS RESTRICTED STOCK AWARD AGREEMENT (“Agreement”) is entered into by and between Intermountain Community Bancorp (“Bancorp”) and the Grantee, named below, effective                     .
     Grantee:
     Shares:
     Purchase Price: $0.00 (not applicable)               Date of Grant:
This Agreement is subject to the terms and conditions of Bancorp’s Second Amended and Restated Employee Stock Option and Restricted Stock Plan (the “Plan”). Such terms and conditions are incorporated herein by this reference. In the event of a conflict between the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the terms and conditions of the Plan, the terms and condition of the Plan shall govern.
1.   Award of Shares
  a.   General. In connection with a Restricted Stock Award (as defined in the Plan), Bancorp grants to the Grantee the number of shares of Bancorp’s Common Stock identified above (the “Shares”).
 
  b.   Conditions to Award of Shares. As a condition precedent to Bancorp’s obligation to award shares under paragraph 1.a, the Grantee shall deliver to Bancorp, within thirty (30) days following the Date of Grant, (i) an original of this Agreement duly executed by the Grantee, and (ii) the aggregate Purchase Price, if any, in cash or cash equivalent. In the event the Grantee fails to make such delivery(ies), then the rights and obligations of Bancorp and the Grantee hereunder shall terminate without the need for further action by any party, and Bancorp and the Grantee shall have no further rights or obligations with respect to the Restricted Stock Award described in paragraph 1.a.
 
  c.   Issuance of Shares and Delivery of Certificates. Concurrently with the payment by the Grantee of the aggregate Purchase Price, if any, as described in paragraph 1.b, Bancorp shall issue the Shares to the Grantee. As provided in paragraph 3, all certificates representing the Shares so issued shall be held in escrow by the Secretary of Bancorp.

  d.   Cash Dividends. Any cash dividends with respect to Unvested Shares (defined below) will be held by Bancorp (unsegregated and as part of its general assets) until the Unvested Shares have vested, and will be paid over to the Grantee as soon as the vesting period is completed with respect to the Shares. Prior to the date of vesting, cash dividends related to Unvested Shares will be held in escrow by Bancorp and will be subject to forfeiture, as described in paragraph 2.a., with respect to the Unvested Shares.
 
  e.   Stock Dividends or Splits. Whenever Unvested Shares become vested pursuant to paragraph 1.g and are released to the Grantee, a number of Shares equal to the amount of shares issued in the event of stock dividends and splits between the Grant Date and the date of vesting shall also be issued to the Grantee. Prior to the date of vesting, shares related to stock dividends or splits will be held in escrow by Bancorp and will be subject to forfeiture or Bancorp’s Repurchase Right (defined below), as the case may be, with respect to the Unvested Shares.
 
  f.   Rights Upon Issuance of Shares. Until such time as Bancorp exercises its Repurchase Right with respect to Unvested Shares or such Shares are forfeited, as the case may be, and subject to any restrictions contained in the Plan or this Agreement, the Grantee (or his or her successor in interest) shall have the voting rights of a stockholder with respect to the Shares, including Unvested Shares.
 
  g.   Vesting Schedule. The Shares shall vest as provided in the vesting schedule set forth below. In no event shall any portion of the Shares vest after the Grantee first ceases to maintain Continuous Status as an Employee (as defined in the Plan), unless the vesting of such shares is accelerated as described in paragraph 7.a. That portion of the Shares that is not vested at the time that the Grantee first ceases to maintain Continuous Status as an Employee (the “Unvested Shares”) shall be subject to forfeiture or the Repurchase Right of Bancorp, as the case may be, as described in paragraph 2.

    20 %        
 
*   The number of Shares that vest each year, resulting from multiplying the original number of Shares by the percentage shown, shall be rounded up to the nearest whole number, but the total number of Shares that vest over the entire vesting period shall not exceed, in the aggregate, the total number of Shares identified in this Agreement above.
2.   Forfeiture and Repurchase Right
  a.   Forfeiture. With respect to any Shares for which the Purchase Price is not applicable (i.e. the Purchase Price is $0.00), any Unvested Shares (and related cash dividends and Shares related to stock dividends or stock splits) will be forfeited by the Grantee on the date on which Grantee, for any reason, first ceases to maintain Continuous Status as an Employee, unless the vesting of such shares is accelerated as described in paragraph 7.a.
 
  b.   Repurchase Right. With respect to any Shares for which a Purchase Price is specified, and notwithstanding any provisions contained in this Agreement to the contrary, Bancorp shall have the right, but not the obligation, to repurchase all or any portion of the Unvested Shares (the “Repurchase Right”) at the Purchase Price originally paid by the Grantee for such Unvested Shares. Such Repurchase Right shall be exercisable at any time during the ninety (90) day period that immediately follows the date on which Grantee, for any reason, first ceases to maintain Continuous Status as an Employee, unless the vesting of such shares is accelerated as described in paragraph 7.a.
 
  c.   Exercise of Repurchase Right. If Bancorp elects to exercise the Repurchase Right for all or any portion of the Unvested Shares, it shall do so by delivering a written notice of exercise to the Grantee prior to the expiration of the ninety (90) day period described in paragraph 2.b. Such notice shall specify the number of Unvested Shares that Bancorp will repurchase and the date on which the repurchase is to be effected, which date shall be not more than thirty (30) days after the date of the notice. To the extent that one or more certificates representing Unvested Shares may have been previously delivered out of escrow to the Grantee, the Grantee shall, prior to the close of business on the date

3


 

      specified for the repurchase, deliver to the Secretary of Bancorp the certificates representing the Unvested Shares to be repurchased, each certificate to be properly endorsed for transfer. Bancorp shall, concurrently with the receipt of such stock certificates (either from escrow or from the Grantee as herein provided), pay to the Grantee, in cash or cash equivalents, an amount equal to the Purchase Price originally paid by the Grantee for the Unvested Shares that Bancorp elects to repurchase. If Bancorp does not elect to exercise the Purchase Right for all or any portion of the Unvested Shares, in the manner and within the time period described above, then Bancorp shall cease to have any further Repurchase Right with respect to the Unvested Shares that it does not elect to repurchase.
 
  d.   Additional Shares or Substitute Securities. In the event of a stock dividend, stock split, recapitalization or other change affecting Bancorp’s outstanding Common Stock as a class (effected, in each case, without receipt by Bancorp of consideration), then any new, substituted or additional securities or other property (including money paid, other than as a regular cash distribution) that is by reason of such transaction distributed with respect to the Shares shall be immediately subject to forfeiture or the Repurchase Right, as the case may be, but only to the extent that such Shares are at the time Unvested Shares. Appropriate adjustments to reflect the distribution of such securities or property shall be made to the number of Shares at the time subject to forfeiture or the Repurchase Right hereunder, as the case may be, and to the price per share to be paid upon the exercise of the Repurchase Right, in order to reflect the effect of any such transaction upon Bancorp’s capital structure; provided, however, that the aggregate Purchase Price shall remain the same.
3.   Escrow
  a.   Deposit. The Grantee hereby authorizes Bancorp to hold in escrow, in accordance with this paragraph 3, all certificates representing Unvested Shares. In the event any such certificates shall come into the possession of the Grantee, the Grantee shall immediately deliver the same to the Secretary of Bancorp for such purposes. The Grantee further agrees to deliver, at the time any Unvested Shares are issued to him, a duly executed Assignment Separate From Certificate, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A, to accompany any certificates representing Unvested Shares. The certificates representing Unvested Shares shall remain in escrow until such time or times as they are released or surrendered in accordance with paragraph 3.b.
 
  b.   Release/Surrender. As to Shares in which the Grantee acquires a vested interest (as described in paragraph 1.g), the certificates representing such Shares shall be released from escrow and delivered to the Grantee as soon as practicable after the Grantee acquires such vested interest. As to Shares that are Unvested Shares at the time that the Grantee first ceases to maintain Continuous Status as an Employee, and which are forfeited or for which Bancorp elects to exercise the

4


 

      Repurchase Right with respect to all or any portion of such Unvested Shares, as the case may be and as provided in paragraph 2, certificates representing the Unvested Shares that are forfeited or that Bancorp elects to repurchase shall be delivered to Bancorp, concurrently with the payment to the Grantee, in cash or cash equivalent, of an amount equal to the aggregate Purchase Price, if any, for such Unvested Shares, and the Grantee shall cease to have any further rights or claims with respect to such Unvested Shares. As to Shares that are Unvested Shares at the time that the Grantee first ceases to maintain Continuous Status as an Employee and for which a Purchase Price is applicable, if Bancorp does not elect to exercise the Repurchase Right, as provided in paragraph 2, or elects to exercise the Repurchase Right with respect to less than all of the Unvested Shares, certificates for Unvested Shares that Bancorp does not elect to repurchase shall be delivered to the Grantee, and Bancorp shall cease to have any further Repurchase Right with respect to such Unvested Shares.
 
  c.   Prohibition on Transfer. The Grantee shall not sell, transfer, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise dispose of Unvested Shares, and any such sale, transfer or pledge in violation of this Agreement shall be void. Bancorp shall not be required (i) to transfer on its books any Shares that shall have been sold or transferred in violation of this Agreement, or (ii) to accord any rights (including, without limitation, the right to vote, to receive dividends, or to receive the proceeds of liquidation) to any transferee to whom such Shares shall have been so transferred.
4.   Legends. In order to reflect restrictions on disposition of the Unvested Shares, each certificate representing Shares may be endorsed with a legend substantially as follows, in addition to any other legends that Bancorp deems to be necessary or advisable:
      THE SHARES OF STOCK REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE SUBJECT TO THE RESTRICTIONS SET FORTH IN A RESTRICTED STOCK AWARD AGREEMENT, ___, A COPY OF WHICH IS ON FILE AT THE OFFICE OF BANCORP AND THE PROVISIONS OF WHICH ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY REFERENCE.
5.   Section 83(b) Election. The Grantee understands and acknowledges that:
  a.   Under Section 83 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), the excess of the fair market value of the Shares at the time that any restrictions on the Shares lapse over the Purchase Price for the Shares is taxed, as ordinary income, in the taxable year in which such restrictions lapse. In this context, “restriction” means the mandatory forfeiture of the Unvested Shares under circumstances or the right of Bancorp to buy back the Shares pursuant to the Repurchase Right.
 
  b.   If Section 83 of the Code is applicable, the Grantee may file a special election (“Section 83(b) Election”) so that the excess of the fair market value of the Shares

5


 

      at the time the Shares are transferred to him/her (rather than the time that any restrictions on the Shares lapse) over the Purchase Price for the Shares is taxed, as ordinary income, in the taxable year in which the Shares are transferred to him/her (rather than the taxable year in which any restrictions lapse). Even if the fair market value of the Shares equals the amount paid for the Shares, the election must be made to avoid adverse tax consequences in the future.
 
  c.   The Participant will not be entitled to a deduction for any ordinary income previously recognized as a result of making a Section 83(b) Election, if the Unvested Shares are subsequently forfeited to Bancorp.
 
  d.   If the value of the Unvested Shares declines after a Section 83(b) Election, such election may cause the Grantee to recognize more compensation income than he/she would have otherwise recognized.
 
  e.   There may be tax reporting, payroll tax and withholding tax requirements relating to the acquisition, and/or the subsequent vesting, of Shares.
 
  f.   THE FORM FOR MAKING A SECTION 83(b) ELECTION IS ATTACHED HERETO AS EXHIBIT B. IF THE GRANTEE CHOOSES TO MAKE SUCH AN ELECTION, THIS FORM MUST BE FILED NO LATER THAN THIRTY (30) DAYS AFTER THE SHARES ARE TRANSFERRED TO HIM. FAILURE TO MAKE A TIMELY SECTION 83(b) ELECTION MAY RESULT IN THE RECOGNITION OF ORDINARY INCOME BY THE GRANTEE AS THE REPURCHASE RIGHT LAPSES. IT IS THE GRANTEE’S SOLE RESPONSIBILITY, AND NOT BANCORP’S, TO MAKE A TIMELY SECTION 83(b) ELECTION.
 
  g.   THE GRANTEE IS ADVISED TO SEEK INDEPENDENT ADVICE REGARDING THE APPLICABLE PROVISIONS OF ANY TAX LAWS RELATING TO HIS ACQUISITION OF ANY SHARES.
6.   Securities Law Compliance. Notwithstanding any contrary provisions of this Agreement, the Shares may not be sold, assigned or transferred, unless they are registered under applicable Federal and state securities laws and regulations or, if the Shares are not then so registered, an exemption from such registration is available.
 
7.   Miscellaneous
  a.   Corporate Sale Transactions. In the event of the merger or reorganization of Bancorp with or into any other corporation, the sale of substantially all of the assets of Bancorp, or a dissolution or liquidation of Bancorp (collectively, “Sale Transaction”), (1) the vesting schedule for otherwise Unvested Shares shall be accelerated so that such Shares will be fully vested; and (2) the forfeiture and Repurchase Right provisions set forth in paragraph 2 shall lapse and be unenforceable as to such previously Unvested Shares.

6


 

  b.   Successors in Interest. This Agreement and all of its terms, conditions and covenants are intended to be fully effective and binding, to the extent permitted by law, on the heirs, executors, administrators, successors and permitted assigns of the parties hereto.
 
  c.   Spousal Consent. If the Grantee is married, the Grantee shall obtain the signature of the Grantee’s spouse as set forth on the Consent of Spouse below. The Grantee’s failure to obtain such consent shall constitute a representation by the Grantee, on which Bancorp shall rely, that the Grantee is unmarried and that the Grantee has sole authority with respect to the Grantee’s actions regarding the Shares.
 
  d.   No Right to Employment. Nothing in this Agreement shall affect in any manner whatsoever the right or power of Bancorp to terminate the Grantee’s employment with Bancorp, or the Grantee’s ability to quit Bancorp’s employment, with or without cause, at any time.
     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have executed this Agreement on the day and year first indicated above.
