Exhibit A

SCHEDULE I

(Second Revised Schedule I to Fourth Amended and Restated Employment Agreement dated as of July 23, 2012, as amended, by and between Jarden Corporation and James E. Lillie)

On January 1 of each year during the Employment Period (or, if any such date is not a business day, on the next succeeding business day), provided Executive is employed on such date, Executive shall be entitled to receive an annual performance grant of shares of Restricted Stock as set forth in the table below. The restrictions on the Restricted Shares shall lapse based on achievement of a performance target equal to a target appreciation in the stock price of the common stock of the Company set by the Compensation Committee at the time of grant, but not to exceed a maximum appreciation percentage performance target according to the following table:

 

Grant (# of shares)1

  Date   Maximum Stock Price Appreciation (%)
Performance Target (over Closing Price
on Last Trading Day of  Prior Year)
177,632   January 1, 2016   12%
168,750   January 1, 2017   12%
165,690   January 1, 2018   12%

In the event the Employment Period extends past December 31, 2018, in each additional year of the Employment Period beginning after December 31, 2018, the Executive shall be entitled to a grant of Restricted Stock in an amount to be determined each year by the Compensation Committee, with vesting determined in accordance with the performance targets set forth above, or such other methodology as the Executive and the Compensation Committee may mutually agree.

The performance target for vesting each of the annual grants listed above shall be achieved on the date that the average closing price of the Company’s common stock on the New York Stock Exchange (or such other securities exchange on which the Company’s common stock may then be traded) for any period of five consecutive trading days equals or exceeds a price representing an increase over the closing price on the last trading day of the prior calendar year at least equal to the target stock price appreciation percentage set by the Compensation Committee (up to the maximum set forth above). The performance target must be achieved, if at all, within five (5) years from the date of grant. If the performance target in not achieved within five (5) years from the date of grant, such grant will expire and be forfeited.

Capitalized terms used but not defined on this Schedule I shall have the meanings assigned thereto in the Fourth Amended and Restated Employment Agreement dated as of July 23, 2012, by and between Jarden Corporation and James E. Lillie, as amended, of which this Schedule I forms a part.
