The Board of Directors and/or the Chief Executive Officer of the Company may change employee’s title, position and/or duties at any time.

3. SERVICES TO BE EXCLUSIVE. Employee agrees to devote Employee’s full productive time and best efforts to the performance of Employee’s duties hereunder pursuant to the supervision and direction of the Company’s Board of Directors, its Chief Executive Officer or their designee. Employee further agrees, as a condition to the performance by the Company of each and all of its obligations hereunder, that so long as Employee is employed by the Company, Employee will not directly or indirectly render services of any nature to, otherwise become employed by, or otherwise participate or engage in any other business without the Company’s prior written consent. Nothing herein contained shall be deemed to preclude Employee from having outside personal investments and involvement with appropriate community or charitable activities, or from devoting a reasonable amount of time to such matters, provided that this shall in no manner interfere with or derogate from Employee’s work for the Company.

4. COMPENSATION.

(a) Base Salary. In accordance with the Company’s usual review and pay practices, the Company agrees to pay Employee a base salary of no less than $327,000.00 per year (prorated for any partial years of employment), payable in equal installments on regularly scheduled Company pay dates. Employee agrees that the Company may increase Employee’s base salary without requiring an amendment of this Agreement through the use of a Personnel Action Notice.

(b) Annual Incentive. The Company shall provide Employee an opportunity to earn an annual incentive payment based upon participation in the Company’s applicable incentive plan as it may or may not exist from time to time. Employee’s incentive target percentage is fifty-five percent (55%) of Employee’s annual base salary. Any annual incentive payment earned pursuant to an applicable incentive plan shall be payable in the first quarter of the following year.

(c) Long Term Incentive. The Company shall provide Employee an opportunity to participate in the Company’s applicable long term incentive program as it may or may not exist from time to time.


5. EXPENSES AND BENEFITS.

(a) Reasonable and Necessary Expenses. In addition to the compensation provided for in Section 4, the Company shall reimburse Employee for all reasonable, customary and necessary expenses incurred in the performance of Employee’s duties hereunder. Employee shall first account for such expenses in accordance with the policies and procedures set by the Company from time to time for reimbursement of such expenses. The amount, nature, and extent of such expenses shall always be subject to the control, supervision and direction of the Company and its Chief Executive Officer.

(b) Paid Time Off. Employee shall accrue paid time off in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Company’s Paid Time Off Program, as stated in the Company’s Employee Handbook, and as may be modified from time to time. Subject to the maximum accrual permitted under the Paid Time Off Program, Employee shall accrue paid time off at the rate of twenty-five (25) days per year. The time off may be taken any time during the year subject to prior approval by the Company. The Company reserves the right to pay Employee for unused, accrued benefits in lieu of providing time off in accordance with the Company’s policies with respect to unused Paid Time Off.

(c) Insurance/Death Benefit. During Employee’s employment with the Company pursuant to this Agreement, the Company shall provide the following:

(i) Employee may participate in the Company’s health insurance and disability insurance plans as the same may be modified from time to time;

(ii) Subject to all applicable laws, and satisfaction of the conditions set forth below, Employee may be eligible for an additional disability benefit if Employee becomes permanently disabled. Permanent Disability shall be defined as Employee’s failure to perform or being unable to perform all or substantially all of Employee’s duties under this Agreement for a continuous period of six (6) months or more on account of any physical or mental disability, either as mutually agreed to by the parties or as reflected in the opinions of three (3) qualified physicians, one of which has been selected by the Company, one of which has been selected by Employee, and one of which has been selected by the two other physicians jointly. In the event that Employee is declared permanently disabled (the “Permanent Disability Date”), then Employee shall be entitled to (i) any compensation accrued and unpaid as of the Permanent Disability Date; (ii) a cash payment based on the incentive payment Employee would have received in light of the Company’s actual performance as measured against the requirements of the annual incentive plan and pro-rated to the date of Employee’s Permanent Disability Date; (iii) a lump sum payment equal to six (6) months of Employee’s then current base salary at the same rate as in effect on the Permanent Disability Date; (iv) the vesting of all unvested long-term incentive compensation awards (e.g., SARs, stock options, and other long-term equity-based incentive awards) held by Employee that would have vested had Employee continued to perform services pursuant to this Agreement for a period of twelve (12) months from the Permanent Disability Date; (v) subject to Subsection 7(b)(ii) below, the payment of premiums owed for COBRA insurance benefits for a period of twelve (12) months from the Permanent Disability Date; and (vi) no other payments. The payment of the benefits described in (i) and (iii) of this subsection, as well as any vested time-based long-term incentive compensation awards described in (iv) of this subsection, shall be made as soon as administratively practicable following the Permanent Disability Date, but in no event later than seventy (70) days after the Permanent Disability Date; the payment of any benefits described in (ii) of this subsection, as well as any performance-based long-term incentive compensation awards described in (iv) of this subsection, shall be paid after the completion of the relevant performance period and the evaluation of whether, and the degree to which, the performance criteria have been met. The payment of this benefit shall not eliminate Employee’s right to permanent disability insurance benefits if the Employee so qualifies, and shall not eliminate the right of the Company to terminate Employee’s employment (e.g., a termination for substantial cause pursuant to Subsection 7(e)) without any further payment pursuant to this Agreement. Employee agrees that the Company shall be entitled to take as an offset against any amounts to be paid pursuant to this subsection any amounts received by Employee pursuant to disability or other insurance or similar income sources provided by the Company; and

(iii) Employee shall receive, if Employee is insurable under usual underwriting standards, term life insurance coverage on Employee’s life, payable to whomever Employee directs, in an amount equal to four and sixty-five hundredths (4.65) times Employee’s base salary, not to exceed a maximum of $1,500,000.00 in coverage, provided that Employee completes the required health statement and application and that Employee’s physical condition does not prevent Employee from qualifying for such insurance coverage under reasonable terms and conditions.

(iv) In the event of Employee’s death, all outstanding unvested service-based full value long-term incentive awards (e.g., restricted stock units and phantom stock units) held by Employee shall immediately vest.

(d) Retirement. Employee shall be permitted to participate in the Company’s 401(k) retirement investment plan pursuant to the terms of such plan, as the same may be modified from time to time, to the extent such plan is offered to other officers of the Company.

To the extent the Company provides financial, tax and estate planning and related services, annual executive physicals, golf expense reimbursements, or any other perquisites and personal benefits to other officers generally from time to time, such services and perquisites shall be made available to Employee on the same terms and conditions.

6. TAXES. Employee acknowledges that Employee is responsible for all taxes, including imputed income taxes related to Employee’s compensation and benefits, except for those taxes for which the Company is obligated to pay under applicable law or regulation. Employee agrees that the Company may withhold from Employee’s compensation any amounts that the Company is required to withhold under applicable law or regulation.

7. TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT.

(a) Termination by the Company Without Substantial Cause, or by Employee for Good Reason or Non-Renewal. Employee’s employment under this Agreement may be terminated by the Company at any time without substantial cause. Employee’s employment under this Agreement may also be terminated by Employee for Good Reason or Non-Renewal. “Good Reason” shall mean a material breach of this Agreement by the Company. “Non-Renewal” shall mean if the Company gives notice of non-renewal of this Agreement, as described in Section 1 above, and offers Employee a new or amended written employment agreement that is not on substantially the same or better terms as this Agreement. In the event of a termination by the Company Without Substantial Cause, or by Employee for Good Reason or Non-Renewal, Employee shall be entitled to receive (i) any compensation accrued and unpaid as of the date of termination; (ii) a cash payment based on the annual incentive payment Employee would have received in the then-current year in light of the Company’s actual performance as measured against the requirements of the annual incentive plan, pro-rated to the date of Employee’s termination (the “Pro-Rata Incentive Plan Payment”); and (iii) the vesting of all unvested long-term incentive compensation awards (e.g., SARs, stock options, and other long-term equity-based incentive awards) held by Employee that would have vested had Employee continued to perform services pursuant to this Agreement for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of termination; provided that any unvested long-term incentive compensation awards that are subject to performance-based vesting will vest only if, and to the degree that, the performance goals are satisfied. The payment of the benefits described in (i) of this subsection as well as any vested time-based long-term incentive compensation awards described in (iii) of this subsection shall be made as soon as administratively practicable following the date of termination. The payment of any benefits described in (ii) of this subsection as well as any performance-based long-term incentive compensation awards described in (iii) of this subsection

shall be paid after the completion of the relevant performance period and the evaluation of whether, and the degree to which, the performance criteria have been met. In addition to the foregoing and subject to the provisions thereof, Employee shall be eligible to receive Special Severance as described in Subsection 7(b) and Incentive Payments as described in Subsection 7(c).

(i) Conditions on Termination by Employee for Good Reason or Non-Renewal. In the event that Employee seeks to terminate this Agreement for Good Reason or Non-Renewal, the following notice procedures shall apply:

1. Good Reason – Within ninety (90) days of the date Employee knows, or should have known, that Employee is entitled to terminate this Agreement for Good Reason, as defined above, Employee shall notify the Company in writing of the Good Reason and Employee’s intent to terminate the Agreement no earlier than thirty (30) days later. Company shall then have thirty (30) days to cure the condition underlying Employee’s notice or inform Employee, in writing, of its intent not to do so. If Company fails to cure the condition, or states that it does not intend to attempt to cure the condition underlying Employee’s notice, then Employee shall then have the right to terminate for Good Reason no later than ninety (90) days following the expiration of the cure period or the written statement of intent not to cure.

2. Non-Renewal – At least sixty (60) days prior to the expiration of this Agreement, the Company shall notify Employee in writing of Non-Renewal, as defined above. Within thirty (30) days of delivery of the written notice of Non-Renewal, the Company shall provide Employee with a new or amended employment agreement or inform Employee in writing that it does not intend to offer Employee a new employment agreement. Employee shall then have the option, for forty-five (45) days following expiration of the Agreement, to notify the Company, in writing, of Employee’s intent to terminate Employee’s employment for Non-Renewal.

(b) Special Severance. In the event of a termination pursuant to Subsection 7(a) of this Agreement, Special Severance shall consist of a total amount equal to 0.500 times the sum of Employee’s most recent annual base salary and annual target incentive, payable in equal installments on the same pay schedule as in effect at the time of termination over a period of twelve (12) months from the date of termination. Employee shall also be entitled to the payment of premiums owed for COBRA and/or CalCOBRA insurance benefits and the continuation of the financial, tax and estate planning services (on the then-existing terms and conditions) through the period during which Employee is receiving Special Severance. In addition, the Company shall offer to provide, at Company expense, up to one (1) year of outplacement services through a professional outplacement firm of the Company’s choosing.

(i) Conditions on Receiving Special Severance. Notwithstanding anything else to the contrary, it is expressly understood that any obligation of the Company to pay Special Severance pursuant to this Agreement shall be subject to Employee’s continued compliance with the terms and conditions of Sections 8 and 11; Employee’s continued forbearance from directly, indirectly or in any other way, disparaging the Company, its officers or employees, vendors, customers, products or activities, or otherwise interfering with the Company’s press, public and media relations; and Employee’s execution, prior to receiving any Special Severance, of an effective release in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B within the time period set forth therein (but in no event later than sixty (60) days after the date of termination of employment). Additionally, none of the Special Severance benefits will be paid or otherwise delivered prior to the effective date of the release, so that amounts otherwise payable prior to the release effective date will accrue and be paid as soon as administratively practicable, except as required by Subsection 7(h) below. Employee agrees that payment of Special Severance pursuant to this subsection shall be in lieu of, and not in addition to, any other payment that Employee might otherwise be entitled to, including, but not limited to, payments under any state or federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, any similar statute, or as provided for under common law.

(ii) Payment in lieu of COBRA. Notwithstanding anything else to the contrary, if the Company determines, in its sole discretion, that the Company cannot provide COBRA premium benefits under this Agreement without potentially incurring financial costs or penalties under applicable law (including, without limitation, Section 2716 of the Public Health Service Act), the Company shall, in lieu thereof, pay Employee a taxable cash amount, which payment shall be made if Employee has elected health care continuation coverage (the “Health Care Benefit Payment”). If applicable, the Health Care Benefit Payment shall be paid in a single lump sum as soon as administratively practicable following the effective date of the release signed by Employee, but in no event later than seventy (70) days after the date of termination of employment or the Permanent Disability Date, as applicable. The Health Care Benefit Payment shall be equal to the amount that the Company would have otherwise paid for COBRA insurance premiums (at the level of healthcare benefits Employee and Employee’s dependents are enrolled in as of the termination date) calculated based on the premium for the first month of coverage.

(c) Incentive Payments. In the event of a termination pursuant to Subsection 7(a) of this Agreement, Employee shall also be offered the opportunity to receive Incentive Payments in a total amount equal to 0.500 times the sum of Employee’s most recent annual base salary and target incentive, payable in equal installments on the same pay schedule in effect at the time of termination over a period of twelve (12) months from the date of termination.

(i) Terms and Conditions for Incentive Payments. Employee may receive Incentive Payments so long as Employee chooses not to engage (whether as an owner, employee, agent, consultant, or in any other capacity) in any business or venture that competes with the business of the Company or any of its affiliates. If Employee chooses to engage in such activities, then the Company shall have no obligation to make further Incentive Payments commencing upon the date which Employee chooses to do so.

(ii) Sole Consideration. Employee and the Company agree and acknowledge that the sole and exclusive consideration for the Incentive Payments is Employee’s forbearance as described in Subsection 7(c)(i) above. In the event that Subsection 7(c)(i) is deemed unenforceable or invalid for any reason, then the Company will have no obligation to make Incentive Payments for the period of time during which it has been deemed unenforceable or invalid. The obligations and duties of this Subsection 7(c) shall be separate and distinct from the other obligations and duties set forth in this Agreement, and any finding of invalidity or unenforceability of this Subsection 7(c) shall have no effect upon the validity or invalidity of the other provisions of this Agreement.

(d) Treatment of Special Severance and Incentive Payments. Any Special Severance and Incentive Payments shall be subject to usual and customary employee payroll practices and all applicable withholding requirements.

(e) Termination by the Company for Substantial Cause or by Employee Without Good Reason. Employee’s employment under this Agreement may be terminated immediately and at any time by the Company for substantial cause or by Employee without good reason. In the event of such a termination, Employee shall be entitled to receive (i) any compensation accrued and unpaid as of the date of termination; and (ii) no other severance. “Substantial cause” shall mean Employee’s (1) failure to substantially perform Employee’s duties; (2) material breach of this Agreement; (3) misconduct, including but not limited to, use or possession of illegal drugs during work and/or any other action that is damaging or detrimental in a significant manner to the Company; (4) conviction of, or plea of guilty or nolo contendere to, a felony; or (5) failure to cooperate with, or any attempt to obstruct or improperly influence, any investigation authorized by the Board of Directors or any governmental or regulatory agency.

 

5


(f) Termination by Mutual Agreement of the Parties. Employee’s employment pursuant to this Agreement may be terminated at any time upon the mutual agreement in writing of the parties. Any such termination of employment shall have the consequences specified in such agreement.

(g) Other. Except for the amounts specifically provided pursuant to this Section 7, Employee shall not be entitled to any further compensation, incentive, damages, restitution, relocation benefits, or other severance benefits upon termination of employment. The amounts payable to Employee pursuant to these Sections shall not be treated as damages, but as compensation to which Employee may be entitled by reason of termination of employment under the applicable circumstances. The Company shall not be entitled to set off against the amounts payable to Employee pursuant to this Section 7 any amounts earned by Employee in other employment after termination of Employee’s employment with the Company pursuant to this Agreement, or any amounts which might have been earned by Employee in other employment had Employee sought such other employment. The provisions of this Section 7 shall not limit Employee’s rights under or pursuant to any other agreement or understanding with the Company regarding any pension, insurance or other employee benefit plan of the Company to which Employee is entitled pursuant to the terms of such plan.

(h) Compliance with Section 409A. Each installment of severance benefits is a separate “payment” for purposes of Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 and the regulations governing Section 409A (collectively “Section 409A”), and the severance benefits are intended to satisfy the exemptions under Section 409A. It is intended that if Employee is a “specified employee” within the meaning of Section 409A at the time of a separation from service, then, to the extent necessary, the severance benefits will not be paid until at least six (6) months after separation from service.

(i) Pre-Termination Rights. The Company shall have the right, at its option, to require Employee to vacate Employee’s office or otherwise remain off the Company’s premises and to cease any and all activities on the Company’s behalf without such action constituting a termination of employment or a breach of this Agreement.

(j) Forfeiture.

(i) If the Company is required to prepare an accounting restatement due to the material noncompliance of the Company, as a result of the intentional misconduct or gross negligence of the Employee, with any financial reporting requirement under the United States securities laws, then the Employee shall forfeit and reimburse the Company for all of the following: (i) any incentive or incentive compensation paid based upon such erroneously stated financial information, (ii) any incentive or incentive compensation or equity compensation received by Employee during the twelve (12) month period following the earlier of the first public issuance or filing with the SEC of the financial document embodying the financial reporting requirement, (iii) any profits realized from the sale of Company securities during that same twelve (12) month period, (iv) if Employee is terminated or has been terminated, the right to receive Special Severance and Incentive Payments, and (v) if Employee is terminated or has been terminated, any unvested and/or unexercised long-term incentive compensation awards.

(ii) If the Employee is one of the persons subject to automatic forfeiture under Section 304 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (i.e. the Chief Executive Officer or Chief Financial Officer) and the Company is required to prepare an accounting restatement due to the material noncompliance of the Company, as a result of misconduct (within the meaning of said Section 304, but other than as a result of Employee’s intentional misconduct or gross negligence, which is governed by the preceding subsection), with any financial reporting requirement under the United States securities laws, then the Employee shall forfeit and reimburse the Company for all of the following: (i) any incentive or incentive compensation or equity compensation received by Employee during the twelve (12) month period following the earlier of the first public issuance or filing with the SEC of the financial document embodying the financial reporting requirement and (ii) any profits realized from the sale of Company securities during that same twelve (12) month period.

 

6


(iii) Employee acknowledges that Section 954 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, among other things, requires the United States Securities and Exchange Commission to direct the national securities exchanges to prohibit the continued listing of the securities of an issuer unless the issuer develops and implements a policy providing, among other things, for the recovery of certain erroneously awarded compensation. Upon the Company’s adoption of such a policy, Employee agrees that this Agreement shall be automatically amended without any further consideration to incorporate the recovery provisions set forth in the policy. Upon the request of the Company, Employee agrees without further consideration to execute an amendment evidencing the incorporation of said provisions into this Agreement.

(iv) No forfeiture or recovery of compensation under this subsection (j) shall constitute an event giving rise to Employee’s right to terminate this Agreement for Good Reason.

8. OTHER EMPLOYEE DUTIES AND OBLIGATIONS.

In addition to any other duties and obligations set forth in this Agreement, Employee shall be obligated as follows:

(a) Compliance. Employee shall be required to comply with all policies and procedures of the Company as such shall be adopted, modified or otherwise established by the Company from time to time, including, but not limited to, the Company’s Code of Conduct. While employed by the Company pursuant to this Agreement, or while receiving severance, incentive or other payments or consideration from the Company following termination of this Agreement, Employee shall disclose in writing to the Company’s General Counsel any conviction of, or plea of guilty or nolo contendere to, a felony.

In the event Employee believes that Employee is legally required to disclose any Trade Secrets or Confidential Information, Employee shall give reasonable notice to the Company prior to disclosing such information and shall assist the Company in taking such legally permissible steps as are reasonable and necessary to protect the Trade Secrets or Confidential Information, including, but not limited to execution by the receiving party of a non-disclosure agreement in a form acceptable to the Company.

In the event of a termination pursuant to Section 9 of this Agreement, then Special Severance shall consist of a total amount equal to 1.000 times the sum of the Employee’s most recent annual base salary and annual target incentive, payable in equal installments on the same pay schedule as in effect at the time of termination over a period of twenty-four (24) months from the date of termination.

In the event of a termination pursuant to Section 9 of this Agreement, Employee shall be offered the opportunity to receive Incentive Payments in a total amount equal to 1.000 times the sum of Employee’s most recent annual base salary and annual target incentive, payable in equal installments on the same pay schedule as in effect at the time of termination over a period of twenty-four (24) months from the date of termination. All such Incentive Payments shall be subject to the provisions of Subsection 7(c).

(e) To the extent that any or all of the payments and benefits provided for in this Agreement and pursuant to any other agreements with Employee constitute “parachute payments” within the meaning of Section 280G of the Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”) and, but for this Section 9, would be subject to the excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Code, then the aggregate amount of such payments and benefits shall be reduced by the minimum amounts necessary to equal one dollar less than the amount which would result in such payments and benefits being subject to such excise tax. The reduction, unless the employee elects otherwise, shall be in such order that provides employee with the greatest after-tax amount possible. All determinations required to be made under this Section 9, including whether a payment would result in a parachute payment and the assumptions to be utilized in arriving at such determination, shall be made by a nationally recognized accounting firm agreed to by the Company and Employee. The Company shall pay the cost of the accounting firm, and the accounting firm shall provide detailed supporting calculations both to the Company and the Employee. The determination of the accounting firm shall be final and binding upon the Company and the Employee, except that if, as a result of subsequent events or conditions (including a subsequent payment or the absence of a subsequent payment or a determination by the Internal Revenue Service or applicable court), it is determined that the excess parachute payments, excise tax or any reduction in the amount of payments and benefits, is or should be other than as determined initially, an appropriate adjustment shall be made, as applicable, to reflect the final determination.

(d) Headings. The headings of the several sections and paragraphs of this Agreement are inserted solely for the convenience of reference and are not a part of and are not intended to govern, limit or aid in the construction of any term or provision hereof.

(e) Waiver. Failure of either party at any time to require performance by the other of any provision of this Agreement shall in no way affect that party’s rights thereafter to enforce the same, nor shall the waiver by either party of any breach of any provision hereof be held to be a waiver of any succeeding breach of any provision or a waiver of the provision itself.

(f) Applicable Law. This Agreement shall constitute a contract under the internal laws of the State of California and shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of said state as to both interpretation and performance.

(g) Severability. In the event any provision or provisions of this Agreement is or are held invalid, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall not be affected thereby.

(i) Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts which, when fully executed by the parties, shall be treated as one agreement.

11. IRREVOCABLE ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES.

(a) Employee and the Company agree that any dispute, controversy or claim arising hereunder or in any way related to this Agreement, its interpretation, enforceability, or applicability, or relating to Employee’s employment, or the termination thereof, that cannot be resolved by mutual agreement of the parties shall be submitted to binding arbitration. This includes, but is not limited to, alleged violations of federal, state and/or local statutes, claims based on any purported breach of duty arising in contract or tort, including breach of contract, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, violation of public policy, violation of any statutory, contractual or common law rights, but excluding workers’ compensation, unemployment matters, or any matter falling within the jurisdiction of the state Labor Commissioner. The parties agree that arbitration is the parties’ only recourse for such claims and hereby waive the right to pursue such claims in any other forum, unless otherwise provided by law. Any court action involving a dispute which is not subject to arbitration shall be stayed pending arbitration of arbitrable disputes.

(b) Employee and the Company agree that the arbitrator shall have the authority to issue provisional relief. Employee and the Company further agree that each has the right, pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure section 1281.8, to apply to a court for a provisional remedy in connection with an arbitrable dispute so as to prevent the arbitration from being rendered ineffective.

(c) Any demand for arbitration shall be in writing and must be communicated to the other party prior to the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations.

(d) The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Employment Arbitration Rules and Procedures. The arbitration shall be conducted in San Diego by a former or retired judge or attorney with at least 10 years experience in employment-related disputes, or a non-attorney with like experience in the area of dispute, who shall have the power to hear motions, control discovery, conduct hearings and otherwise do all that is necessary to resolve the matter. The parties must mutually agree on the arbitrator. If the parties cannot agree on the arbitrator after their best efforts, an arbitrator will be selected from JAMS pursuant to its Employment Arbitration Rules and Procedures. The Company shall pay the costs of the arbitrator’s fees.

(e) The arbitration will be decided upon a written decision of the arbitrator stating the essential findings and conclusions upon which the award is based. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award damages, if any, to the extent that they are available under applicable law(s). The arbitration award shall be final and binding, and may be entered as a judgment in any court having competent jurisdiction. Either party may seek review pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure Section 1286, et seq.

(f) It is expressly understood that the parties have chosen arbitration to avoid the burdens, costs and publicity of a court proceeding, and the arbitrator is expected to handle all aspects of the matter, including discovery and any hearings, in such a way as to minimize the expense, time, burden and publicity of the process, while assuring a fair and just result. In particular, the parties expect that the arbitrator will limit discovery by controlling the amount of discovery that may be taken (e.g., the number of depositions or interrogatories) and by restricting the scope of discovery only to those matters clearly relevant to the dispute. However, at a minimum, each party will be entitled to at least one (1) deposition and shall have access to essential documents and witnesses as determined by the arbitrator.

(g) The provisions of this Section shall survive the termination of the Agreement and shall be binding upon the parties.

EXHIBIT B

RELEASE OF CLAIMS – GENERAL RELEASE

This Release of Claims – General Release (“Release”) is effective as of the date provided for in Section 10 below, and is made by and between                 (“Employee”), pursuant to the Officer Employment Agreement (the “Agreement”) to which this document is attached, and Callaway Golf Company (the “Company”), a Delaware corporation. This Release is entered into in light of the fact that Employee’s employment with the Company will terminate and Employee will be eligible to receive Special Severance pursuant to Section 7 of the Agreement.

1. Consideration. In consideration for the payment of Special Severance, Employee agrees to the terms and provisions set forth in this Release.

2. Release.

(a) Employee hereby irrevocably and unconditionally releases and forever discharges the Company, its predecessors, successors, subsidiaries, affiliates and benefit plans, and each and every past, present and future officer, director, employee, representative and attorney of the Company, its, predecessors, successors, subsidiaries, affiliates and benefit plans, and their successors and assigns (collectively referred to herein as the “Releasees”), from any, every, and all charges, complaints, claims, causes of action, and lawsuits of any kind whatsoever, including, to the extent permitted under the law, all claims which Employee has against the Releasees, or any of them, arising from or in any way related to circumstances or events arising out of Employee’s employment by the Company, including, but not limited to, harassment, discrimination, retaliation, failure to progressively discipline Employee, termination of employment, violation of state and/or federal wage and hour laws, violations of any notice requirement, violations of the California Labor Code, or breach of any employment agreement, together with any and all other claims Employee now has or may have against the Releasees through and including Employee’s date of termination from the Company, provided, however, that Employee does not waive or release the right to enforce the Agreement, the right to enforce any stock option, restricted stock, retirement, welfare or other benefit plan, agreement or arrangement, or any rights to indemnification or reimbursement, whether pursuant to charter and by-laws of the Company or its affiliates, applicable state laws, D&O insurance policies, or otherwise. EMPLOYEE ALSO SPECIFICALLY AGREES AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT EMPLOYEE IS WAIVING ANY RIGHT TO RECOVERY AGAINST RELEASEES BASED ON STATE OR FEDERAL AGE, SEX, PREGNANCY, RACE, COLOR, NATIONAL ORIGIN, MARITAL STATUS, RELIGION, VETERAN STATUS, DISABILITY, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, MEDICAL CONDITION OR OTHER ANTI-DISCRIMINATION LAWS, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TITLE VII, THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT, THE CALIFORNIA FAIR HOUSING AND EMPLOYMENT ACT, THE AGE DISCRIMINATION IN EMPLOYMENT ACT OF 1967, THE FAMILY MEDICAL RIGHTS ACT, THE CALIFORNIA FAMILY RIGHTS ACT OR BASED ON THE EMPLOYEE RETIREMENT INCOME SECURITY ACT OR THE WORKER ADJUSTMENT AND RETRAINING NOTIFICATION ACT, ALL AS AMENDED, WHETHER SUCH CLAIM BE BASED UPON AN ACTION FILED BY EMPLOYEE OR A GOVERNMENTAL AGENCY.

(b) Employee understands that rights or claims under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (29 U.S.C. § 621, et seq.) that may arise after the date this Release is executed are not waived. Nothing in this Release shall be construed to prohibit Employee from exercising Employee’s right to file a charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or from participating in any investigation or proceeding conducted by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

(c) Employee understands and agrees that if Employee files such a charge, the Company has the right to raise the defense that the charge is barred by this Release.

 

15


3. Section 1542 of Civil Code. Employee also waives all rights under Section 1542 of the Civil Code of the State of California. Section 1542 provides as follows:

A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.

4. Governing Law. This Release shall be construed and enforced in accordance with the internal laws of the State of California.

5. Binding Effect. This Release shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective heirs, personal representatives, successors and assigns.

Any court action involving a dispute which is not subject to arbitration shall be stayed pending arbitration of arbitrable disputes.

(b) Employee and the Company agree that the arbitrator shall have the authority to issue provisional relief. Employee and the Company further agree that each has the right, pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure Section 1281.8, to apply to a court for a provisional remedy in connection with an arbitrable dispute so as to prevent the arbitration from being rendered ineffective.

(c) Any demand for arbitration shall be in writing and must be communicated to the other party prior to the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations.

(d) The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Employment Arbitration Rules and Procedures.

The parties must mutually agree on the arbitrator. If the parties cannot agree on the arbitrator after their best efforts, an arbitrator will be selected from JAMS pursuant to its Employment Arbitration Rules and Procedures. The Company shall pay the costs of the arbitrator’s fees.

(e) The arbitration will be decided upon a written decision of the arbitrator stating the essential findings and conclusions upon which the award is based. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award damages, if any, to the extent that they are available under applicable law(s). The arbitration award shall be final and binding, and may be entered as a judgment in any court having competent jurisdiction.
