THIS AGREEMENT (the “Agreement”) is made between Lantheus Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and _________ (the “Participant”), effective _________ (the “Effective Date”).

RECITALS:

WHEREAS, the Company has adopted the Lantheus Holdings, Inc. 2014 Equity Incentive Plan (as the same may be amended and/or amended and restated from time to time, the “Plan”), which Plan is incorporated herein by reference and made a part of this Agreement and capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the same meanings as in the Plan; and

WHEREAS, the Committee desires to issue shares of Common Stock (the “Restricted Stock”) subject to certain restrictions and vesting requirements related to the ownership of the Restricted Stock by the Participant and other matters described herein.

NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants hereinafter set forth, the parties agree as follows:

 

1. Restricted Stock Award

On _________ (the “Date of Grant”) the Company hereby grants to the Participant shares of Restricted Stock, on the terms and conditions set forth in the Plan and this Agreement, subject to adjustment as forth in the Plan.

 

2. Issuance of Shares

 

  i.

Book-Entry Registration of the Shares; Delivery of Shares. The Company may at its election either (i) after the Date of Grant, issue a certificate representing the shares of Restricted Stock subject to this Agreement and place a legend on and stop transfer notice describing the restrictions on and forfeitability of such shares of Restricted Stock, in which case the Company may retain such certificates unless and until the shares of Restricted Stock represented by such certificate have vested and may cancel such certificate if and to the extent that the shares of Restricted Stock are forfeited or otherwise required to be transferred back to the Company; provided, that if the shares of Restricted Stock are to be certificated, the Company may require the Grantee to deliver to the Company a duly-executed blank stock power in a form to be provided by the Company, or (ii) not issue any certificate representing shares of Restricted Stock subject to this Agreement and instead document the Participant’s interest in the shares of Restricted Stock by registering the shares of Restricted Stock with the Company’s transfer agent (or another custodian selected by the Company) in book-entry form in the Participant’s name with the applicable restrictions noted in the book entry system, in which case no certificate(s) representing all or a part of the shares of Restricted Stock will be issued unless and until the shares of Restricted Stock become vested


  pursuant to Section 3 hereof. The Company may provide a reasonable delay in the issuance or delivery of vested shares of Common Stock as it determines appropriate to address tax withholding and other administrative matters.

 

  ii. Shareholder Rights. The Participant shall not have any rights of a stockholder with respect to the Restricted Stock, including voting rights, unless and until the shares of Restricted Stock vest; provided, that, the Participant shall be entitled to receive dividends with respect to the vested Restricted Stock and with respect to the unvested Restricted Stock as may be determined by the Committee in accordance with the Plan and; provided, further, that (x) any regular cash dividends paid with respect to an unvested share of Restricted Stock (the “associated share”) shall be withheld by the Company and shall be paid to the Participant, without interest, within thirty (30) days after the associated share becomes vested hereunder, and shall be forfeited if and when the associated share is so forfeited, and (y) any property (other than cash) distributed with respect to an associated share, including without limitation a distribution of shares by reason of a stock dividend, stock split or otherwise, or a distribution of other securities with respect to an associated share, shall be subject to the restrictions of this Agreement in the same manner and for so long as the associated share remains subject to such restrictions, and shall be forfeited if and when the associated share is so forfeited or shall vest if and when the associated share vests.

 

  iii. Withholding Requirements. As a condition to the grant or vesting of the Restricted Stock, the Participant shall make such arrangements as the Committee may require for the satisfaction of any Federal, state, local or foreign withholding tax obligations that may arise in connection with such Restricted Stock. Unless otherwise elected by the Participant within ninety (90) days following the Date of Grant, such requirements shall be met by having the Company withhold a number of shares of Common Stock having a Fair Market Value on the date the tax is to be determined equal to the minimum statutory total tax that could be imposed on the transaction.

 

3. Vesting of Restricted Stock

 

  i. In General. Except as provided in Section 3(b) and 3(c), the Restricted Stock shall vest in equal annual 25% installments over a four-year period on each anniversary of the Date of Grant, subject to the Participant’s continued Service through each applicable vesting date.

 

  ii. Change in Control. Subject to the Participant’s continued Service through the date of a Change in Control,

 

  (i) if the consideration paid in connection with such Change in Control for the same class of the Company’s equity securities as the then outstanding shares of Restricted Stock is all cash, the shares of Restricted Stock shall become fully vested immediately prior to consummation of the Change in Control; or

 

2


  (ii) if (x) the consideration paid in connection with such Change in Control for the same class of the Company’s equity securities underlying the then outstanding shares of Restricted Stock is all stock, or part cash and part stock, (y) the then outstanding shares of Restricted Stock are assumed or substituted by the acquirer in such Change in Control transaction for awards with substantially the same or comparable terms (including, with respect to then current economic value), and (z) the Participant’s Service is terminated without Cause or, to the extent the Participant is party to an employment letter or agreement that defines “Good Reason” (or any similar term), by the Participant for Good Reason, in either case, within twelve (12) months following such Change in Control, the unvested shares of Restricted Stock shall become fully vested upon such termination of Service.

 

  iii. Termination of Service. The Participant shall forfeit all unvested Restricted Stock upon a termination of Service for any reason. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, and for the avoidance of doubt, the shares of Restricted Stock (and the Shares received upon vesting of the Restricted Stock and any proceeds resulting therefrom) shall be subject to Section 13.2 and Section 13.3 of the Plan.

 

4. Adjustment of Shares. In the event of any change with respect to the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Company, the Restricted Stock may be adjusted in accordance with Section 4.5 of the Plan.

 

5. Miscellaneous Provisions

 

  i. Securities Laws Requirements. No shares of Common Stock will be issued or transferred pursuant to this Agreement unless and until all then applicable requirements imposed by Federal and state securities and other laws, rules and regulations and by any regulatory agencies having jurisdiction, and by any exchanges upon which the shares of Common Stock may be listed, have been fully met. As a condition precedent to the issuance of shares of Common Stock pursuant to this Agreement, the Company may require the Participant to take any reasonable action to meet such requirements.
