assigned to the Executive hereunder.

2.1 The Term. The term of the Executives employment under this Agreement (the
Term) shall commence as of the date first set forth above (the Effective Date) and shall end
twenty-four months after RCPC provides to the Executive a notice of non-renewal, unless in either
case sooner terminated pursuant to Section 4. Non-extension of the Term shall not be deemed to be
a breach of this Agreement by RCPC for purposes of Section 4.4. Additionally, the Executive may

Agreement, RCPC agrees to pay the Executive during the Term a base salary, payable in bi-weekly
arrears, at the annual rate of not less than $650,000 (the Base Salary). All payments of Base
Salary or other compensation hereunder shall be less such deductions or withholdings as are
required by applicable law and regulations. The Base Salary shall be reviewed by Revlons Board of
Directors or Compensation Committee from time to time. In the event that Revlons Board of
Directors or Compensation Committee, in its sole discretion, determines to increase the Base
Salary, such increased amount shall, from and after the effective date of the increase, constitute
Base Salary for purposes of this Agreement.
3.2 Stock-Based Compensation. The Executive shall be eligible for recommendation to
the Compensation Committee or other committee of the Board administering the Third Amended and
Restated Revlon, Inc. Stock Plan (the Stock Plan) or any plan that may replace it, as from time

program as in effect from time to time, provided that the Executive must be actively employed on
the date of such grant.
3.3 Business Expenses. RCPC shall pay or reimburse the Executive for all reasonable
expenses actually incurred or paid by the Executive during the Term in the performance of the
Executives services under this Agreement, subject to and in accordance with the Revlon Travel and

vacation period or periods in accordance with the vacation policy of the Company as in effect from
time to time, but not less than four weeks.
3.5 Fringe Benefits. During the Term, the Executive shall be entitled to participate
in those qualified and non-qualified defined benefit, defined contribution, group life insurance,
medical, dental, disability and other benefit plans and programs of the Company as from time to
time in effect (or their successors) generally made available to other executives of the

and maintenance costs under the car allowance program as in effect from time to time, or such
program or programs, if any, as may succeed it.
4.1 Death. If the Executive shall die during the Term, the Term shall terminate and
no further amounts or benefits shall be payable hereunder, other than (i) for accrued, but unpaid,
Base Salary as of such date and (ii) pursuant to life insurance provided under Section 3.5.
4.2 Disability. If during the Term the Executive shall become physically or mentally
disabled, whether totally or partially, such that the Executive is unable to perform the
Executives services hereunder for (i) a period of six consecutive months or (ii) shorter periods
aggregating six months during any twelve month period, RCPC may at any time after the last day of
the six consecutive months of disability or the day on which the shorter periods of disability
shall have equaled an aggregate of six months, by written notice to the Executive (but before the
Executive has returned to active service following such disability), terminate the Term and no
further amounts or benefits shall be payable hereunder.
4.3 Cause. RCPC may at any time by written notice to the Executive terminate the Term
for Cause and, upon such termination, the Executive shall be entitled to receive no further
amounts or benefits hereunder, except for accrued, but unpaid, salary as of such date and as
required by law. As used herein the term Cause shall mean gross neglect by the Executive of the
Executives duties hereunder, conviction of the Executive of any felony, conviction of the
Executive of any lesser crime or offense involving the property of the Company or any of its
affiliates, misconduct by the Executive in connection with the performance of the Executives
duties hereunder or other material breach by the Executive of this Agreement (specifically
including, without limitation, Section 1.4), any breach of the Revlon Code of Business Conduct, or
the Employee Agreement as to Confidentiality and Non-Competition, or any other conduct on the part
of the Executive which would make the Executives continued employment by the Company prejudicial
in any material respect to the best interests of the Company.
4.4 Company Breach; Other Termination. The Executive shall be entitled to terminate
the Term and the Executives employment upon 60 days prior written notice (if during
such period RCPC fails to cure any such breach) in the event that RCPC materially breaches any of
its obligations hereunder. In addition, RCPC shall be entitled to terminate the Term and the
Executives employment at any time and without prior notice (otherwise than pursuant to the
provisions of Section 4.2 or 4.3). In consideration of the Executives covenant in Section 5.2,
upon termination under this Section 4.4 by the Executive, or in the event RCPC so terminates the
Term otherwise than pursuant to the provisions of Section 4.2 or 4.3, RCPC agrees, and the
Companys sole obligation arising from such termination shall be, for RCPC either
(i) to make payments in lieu of Base Salary in the amounts prescribed by Section 3.1 and to
continue the Executives participation in the medical, dental and group life insurance plans and
other perquisites of the Company in which the Executive was entitled to participate pursuant to
Section 3.5 (in each case less amounts required by law to be withheld) through the date on which
the Term would have expired pursuant to Section 2.1, if RCPC had given notice of non-renewal on the
date of termination (such period shall be referred to as the Severance Period), provided that (1)
such benefit continuation is subject to the terms of such plans, (2) life insurance continuation is
subject to a limit of two years, (3) the Executive shall cease to be covered by medical and/or
dental plans of the Company at such time as the Executive becomes covered by like plans of another
company, (4) the Executive shall, as a condition, execute such release, confidentiality,
non-competition and other covenants as would be required in order for the Executive to receive
payments and benefits under the Executive Severance Plan referred to in clause (ii) below, and (5)
any cash compensation paid or payable or any non-cash compensation paid or payable in lieu of cash
compensation earned by the Executive from other employment or consultancy during such period (but
not including any pension or retirement benefits payable by The Coca Cola Company or Coca Cola
Amatil Limited) shall reduce the payments provided for herein payable with respect to such other
employment or consultancy, or
(ii) to make the payments and provide the benefits prescribed by the Executive Severance Plan
of the Company as in effect from time to time, upon the Executives compliance with the terms and
conditions thereof, provided that the Severance Period for the Executive shall be 24 months.
The Company shall provide the greater of the payments and other benefits described under clauses
(i) and (ii) of this Section 4.4; provided, however, if the provision of any benefits
described above would trigger a tax under Section 409A, the Company shall instead promptly pay to
the Executive in a cash lump sum payment an amount equal to the value (based on the then-current
cost to the Company) of such benefits. Any compensation earned by the Executive from other
employment or a consultancy (but not including any pension or retirement benefits payable by The
Coca Cola Company or Coca Cola Amatil Limited) shall reduce the payments required pursuant to
clause (i) above or shall be governed by the terms of the Executive Severance Plan in the case of
clause (ii) above.
4.5 Litigation Expenses. If RCPC and the Executive become involved in any action, suit
or proceeding relating to the alleged breach of this Agreement by RCPC or the Executive, or any
dispute as to whether a termination of the Executives employment is with or
without Cause, then if
and to the extent that a final judgment in such action, suit or proceeding is rendered in favor of
the Executive, RCPC shall reimburse the Executive for all expenses
(including reasonable attorneys fees) incurred by the Executive in connection with such action,
suit or proceeding or the portion thereof adjudicated in favor of the Executive.
4.6 No Mitigation. In no event shall the Executive be obligated to seek other
4.7 Internal Revenue Code Section 409A. Section 409A of the Code (as defined below)
and/or its related rules and regulations (Section 409A), imposes additional taxes and interest on
compensation or benefits deferred under certain nonqualified deferred compensation plans (as
defined under the Code). These plans may include, among others, nonqualified retirement plans,
bonus plans, stock option plans, employment agreements and severance agreements. The Company
reserves the right to provide compensation or benefits under any such plan in amounts, at times and
in a manner that minimizes taxes, interest or penalties as a result of Section 409A, including any
required withholdings, and the Executive agrees to cooperate with the Company in such actions.
Specifically, and without limitation of the previous sentence, if the Executive is a specified
employee, as such term is defined under Section 409A (generally one of the Companys top 50
highest paid officers), to the extent required under Section 409A, the Company will not make any
payments to the Executive under this Agreement upon a separation from service, as such term is
defined under Section 409A, until six months after the Executives date of separation from service
or, if earlier, the date of the Executives death. Upon expiration of the six-month period, or, if
earlier, the date of the Executives death, the Company shall make a payment to the Executive (or
his beneficiary or estate, if applicable) equal to the sum of all payments that would have been
paid to the Executive from the date of separation from service had the Executive not been a
specified employee through the end of the six month period, and thereafter the Company will make
all the payments at the times specified in this Agreement or applicable policy as the case may be.
In addition, the Company and the Executive agree that, for purposes of this Agreement, termination
of employment (or any variation thereof) will satisfy all of the requirements of separation from
service as defined under Section 409A. For purposes of this Agreement, the right to a series of
installment payments, such as salary continuation or severance payments, shall be treated as the
right to a series of separate payments and shall not be treated as a right to a single payment.
For purposes of this Agreement, the term Code shall mean the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as
amended, including all final regulations promulgated thereunder, and any reference to a particular
section of the Code shall include any provision that modifies, replaces or supersedes such section.
5. Protection of Confidential Information; Non-Competition.
5.1 The Executive acknowledges that the Executives services will be unique, that they will
involve the development of Company-subsidized relationships with key customers, suppliers, and
service providers as well as with key Company employees and that the Executives work for the
Company will give the Executive access to highly confidential information not available to the
public or competitors, including trade secrets and confidential marketing, sales, product
development and other data and plans which it would be impracticable for the Company to effectively
protect and preserve in the absence of this Section 5 and the disclosure or misappropriation of
which could materially adversely affect the Company. Accordingly, the Executive agrees:
5.1.1 except in the course of performing the Executives duties provided for in Section 1.1,
not at any time, whether during or after the Executives employment with the Company, to divulge to
any other entity or person any confidential information acquired by the Executive concerning the
Companys or its affiliates financial affairs or business processes or methods or their research,
development or marketing programs or plans, any other of its or their trade secrets, any
information regarding personal matters of any directors, officers, employees or agents of the
Company or its affiliates or their respective family members, or any information concerning the
circumstances of the Executives employment and any termination of the Executives employment with
the Company or any information regarding discussions related to any of the foregoing. The
foregoing prohibitions shall include, without limitation, directly or indirectly publishing (or
causing, participating in, assisting or providing any statement, opinion or information in
connection with the publication of) any diary, memoir, letter, story, photograph, interview,
article, essay, account or description (whether fictionalized or not) concerning any of the
foregoing, publication being deemed to include any presentation or reproduction of any written,
verbal or visual material in any communication medium, including any book, magazine, newspaper,
theatrical production or movie, or television or radio programming or commercial or over the
internet. In the event that the Executive is requested or required to make disclosure of
information subject to this Section 5.1.1 under any court order, subpoena or other judicial
process, the Executive will promptly notify RCPC, take all reasonable steps requested by RCPC to
defend against the compulsory disclosure and permit RCPC, at its expense, to control with counsel
of its choice any proceeding relating to the compulsory disclosure. The Executive acknowledges that
all information the disclosure of which is prohibited by this section is of a confidential and
proprietary character and of great value to the Company; and
5.1.2 to deliver promptly to the Company on termination of the Executives employment with the
Company, or at any time that RCPC may so request, all memoranda, notes, records, reports, manuals,
drawings, blueprints and other documents (and all copies thereof) relating to the Companys
business and all property associated therewith, which the Executive may then possess or have under
the Executives control.
5.2 In consideration of RCPCs covenant in Section 4.4, the Executive agrees (i) in all
respects fully to comply with the terms of the Employee Agreement as to Confidentiality and
Non-Competition referred to in the Executive Severance Plan (the Non-Competition Agreement),
whether or not the Executive is a signatory thereof, with the same effect as if the same were set
forth herein in full, and (ii) in the event that the Executive shall terminate the Executives
employment otherwise than as provided in Section 4.4, the Executive shall comply
restrictions set forth in paragraph 9(e) of the Non-Competition Agreement through the date on which
the Term would then otherwise have expired pursuant to Section 2.1, subject only to the Company
continuing to make payments equal to the Executives Base Salary during such period,
notwithstanding the limitation otherwise applicable under paragraph 9(d) thereof or any other
provision of the Non-Competition Agreement.
5.3 If the Executive commits a breach of any of the provisions of Sections 5.1 or 5.2 hereof,
RCPC shall have the following rights and remedies:
5.3.1 the right and remedy to immediately terminate all further payments and benefits
provided for in this Agreement, except as may otherwise be required by law in the case of qualified
5.3.2 the right and remedy to have the provisions of this Agreement specifically enforced by
any court having equity jurisdiction, it being acknowledged and agreed that any such breach will
cause irreparable injury to the Company and that money damages and disgorgement of profits will not
provide an adequate remedy to the Company, and, if the Executive attempts or threatens to commit a
breach of any of the provisions of Sections 5.1 or 5.2, the right and remedy to be granted a
preliminary and permanent injunction in any court having equity jurisdiction against the Executive
committing the attempted or threatened breach (it being agreed that each of the rights and remedies
enumerated above shall be independent of the others and shall be severally enforceable, and that
all of such rights and remedies shall be in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other rights and
remedies available to RCPC under law or in equity); and
5.3.3 the right and remedy to require the Executive to account for and pay over to the
Company all compensation, profits, monies, accruals, increments or other benefits (collectively
Benefits) derived or received by the Executive as the result of any transactions constituting a
breach of any of the provisions of Sections 5.1 or 5.2 hereof, and the Executive hereby agrees to
account for and pay over such Benefits as directed by RCPC.
5.4 If any of the covenants contained in Sections 5.1, 5.2 or 5.3, or any part thereof,
hereafter are construed to be invalid or unenforceable, the same shall not affect the remainder of
the covenant or covenants, which shall be given full effect, without regard to the invalid
5.5 If any of the covenants contained in Sections 5.1 or 5.2, or any part thereof, are held to
be unenforceable because of the duration of such provision or the area covered thereby, the parties
agree that the court making such determination shall have the power to reduce the duration and/or
area of such provision so as to be enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law
and, in its reduced form, said provision shall then be enforceable.
5.6 The parties hereto intend to and hereby confer jurisdiction to enforce the covenants
contained in Sections 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3 upon the courts of any state or country within the
geographical scope of such covenants. In the event that the courts of any one or more of such
states or countries shall hold such covenants wholly unenforceable by reason of the breadth of such
covenants or otherwise, it is the intention of the parties hereto that such determination
or in any way affect RCPCs right to the relief provided above in the courts of any other states or
countries within the geographical scope of such covenants as to breaches of such covenants in such
other respective jurisdictions, the above covenants as they relate to each state or country being
for this purpose severable into diverse and independent covenants.
5.7 Any termination of the Term or the Executives employment shall have no effect on the
continuing operation of this Section 5.
6. Inventions and Patents.
6.1 The Executive agrees that all processes, technologies and inventions (collectively,
Inventions), including new contributions, improvements, ideas and discoveries, whether patentable
or not, conceived, developed, invented or made by him during the Term shall belong to the Company,
provided that such Inventions grew out of the Executives work with the Company or any of its
subsidiaries or affiliates, are related in any manner to the business (commercial or experimental)
of the Company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or are conceived or made on the Companys
time or with the use of the Companys facilities or materials. The Executive shall further: (a)
promptly disclose such Inventions to the Company; (b) assign to the Company, without additional
compensation, all patent and other rights to such Inventions for the United States and foreign
countries; (c) sign all papers necessary to carry out the foregoing; and (d) give testimony in
support of the Executives inventorship.
6.2 If any Invention is described in a patent application or is disclosed to third parties,
directly or indirectly, by the Executive within two years after the termination of the Executives
employment with the Company, it is to be presumed that the Invention was conceived or made during
6.3 The Executive agrees that the Executive will not assert any rights to any Invention as
having been made or acquired by the Executive prior to the date of this Agreement, except for
Inventions, if any, disclosed to the Company in writing prior to the date hereof.
7. Intellectual Property.
Notwithstanding and without limitation of Section 6, the Company shall be the sole owner of
all the products and proceeds of the Executives services hereunder, including, but not limited to,
all materials, ideas, concepts, formats, suggestions, developments, arrangements, packages,
programs and other intellectual properties that the Executive may acquire, obtain, develop or
create in connection with or during the Term, free and clear of any claims by the Executive (or
anyone claiming under the Executive) of any kind or character whatsoever (other than the
Executives right to receive payments hereunder). The Executive shall, at the request of RCPC,
execute such assignments, certificates or other instruments as RCPC may from time to time deem
necessary or desirable to evidence, establish, maintain, perfect, protect, enforce or defend its
right, title or interest in or to any such properties.
8. Revlon Code of Business Conduct.
In consideration of the Companys execution of this Agreement, the Executive agrees in all
respects to fully comply with the terms of the Revlon Code of Business Conduct, annexed at
Schedule A, whether or not he is a signatory thereof, with the same effect as if the same
were set forth herein in full.
Subject to the terms, conditions and limitations of its by-laws and applicable Delaware
RCPC will defend and indemnify the Executive against all costs, charges and expenses incurred or
sustained by the Executive in connection with any action, suit or proceeding to which the Executive
may be made a party, brought by any shareholder of the Company directly or derivatively or by any
third party by reason of any act or omission of the Executive as an officer, director or employee
of the Company or of any subsidiary or affiliate of the Company.
All notices, requests, consents and other communications required or permitted to be given

party at any time or times to require performance of any provision hereof shall in no manner affect
the right at a later time to enforce the same. No waiver by either party of the breach of any term
or covenant contained in this Agreement, whether by conduct or otherwise, in any one or more
instances, shall be deemed to be, or construed as, a further or continuing waiver of any such

13. Change of Control
13.1 Change of Control Payments and Benefits.
(a) Extension of Term. In the event of any Change of Control, as defined on
Schedule B, the Term of the Executives Agreement shall be automatically extended for 24
months from the effective date (the COC Effective Date) of any such Change of Control (the
(b) Benefit Continuation; Bonus and Salary Payment. If during the Extended Term, the
Executive terminates the Term of his employment for Good Reason (as defined below in subclause
(b)(iii)) or if the Company terminates the Term of the Executives employment other than for
Cause (as defined in Section 4.3 of the Agreement):
(i) to the extent available under applicable law and the Companys benefit
programs, the Company shall provide for a period of two years from such
termination date all fringe benefits, if any, then provided to the Executive,
including, without limitation, qualified and non-qualified defined benefit, defined
contribution, insurance, medical, dental, disability, automobile, financial
planning, tax preparation and other benefit plans and programs of the Company as
from time to time in effect (or their successors) in which the Executive
participated on the COC Effective Date. To the extent that such benefits, if any,
are not available under applicable law or the Companys benefit programs, or such
benefits, if any, would trigger a tax under Section 409A, the Company shall
immediately pay to the Executive in a cash lump sum payment an amount equal to the
value (based on the then current cost to the Company) of such benefits (or the
remaining eligible portion thereof, as the case may be) , if any, and shall have no
further obligation to continue to provide such benefits, if any, under this Section;
(ii) the Company shall immediately pay to the Executive in a cash lump sum
payment two times the sum of (A) the greater of the Executives Base Salary in
effect on (1) the COC Effective Date or (2) such termination date plus (B) the
average amount of the gross bonus amounts earned by the Executive over the five
calendar years preceding such termination.
(iii) Good Reason means, for purposes of this subclause (b) only (and not for
any other purpose or reason under this Agreement): (A) a material adverse change in
the Executives job responsibilities; (B) any reduction in the Executives Base
Salary; (C) any reduction in the Executives aggregate value of benefits, if any; or
(D) the Executives being required by the Company to relocate beyond a 50 mile
radius of the Executives then current residence.
(iv) The Executive shall have no duty to mitigate by seeking other employment
or otherwise and no compensation earned by the Executive from other employment, a
consultancy or otherwise shall reduce any payments provided for under this Section
(c) Equity Compensation. In the event of any Change of Control, all then unvested
stock options and restricted shares held by the Executive shall immediately vest and be fully
exercisable and all restrictions shall lapse.
(d) Governing Provision. In the event of any conflict between this Section 13 of the
Agreement and any other section or provision of the Agreement, the section which provides the
Executive with the most favored treatment in the event of a Change of Control shall govern and
13.2 Section 280G.
(a) If the aggregate of all amounts and benefits (if any) due to the Executive under this
Agreement or any other plan, program, agreement or arrangement of the Company or any of its
Affiliates, which, if received by the Executive in full, would constitute parachute payments as
such term is defined in and under Section 280G of the Code (collectively, Change of Control
Benefits), reduced by all Federal, state and local taxes applicable thereto, including the excise
tax imposed pursuant to Section 4999 of the Code, is less than the amount the Executive would
receive, after all such applicable taxes, if the Executive received aggregate Change of Control
Benefits equal to an amount which is $1.00 less than three times the Executives base amount, as
defined in and determined under Section 280G of the Code, then such Change of Control Benefits
shall be reduced or eliminated to the extent necessary so that the Change of Control Benefits
received by the Executive will not constitute parachute payments. If a reduction in the Change of
Control Benefits is necessary, reduction shall occur in the following order unless the Executive
elects in writing a different order, subject to the Companys consent (which consent shall not be
unreasonably withheld): first, a reduction of cash payments not attributable to equity awards which
vest on an accelerated basis; second, the cancellation of accelerated vesting of stock awards;
third, the reduction of employee benefits, if any; and fourth, a reduction in any other parachute
payments. If acceleration of vesting of stock award compensation is to be reduced, such
acceleration of vesting shall be cancelled in the reverse order of the date of grant of the
Executives stock awards unless the Executive elects in writing a different order for cancellation.
(b) It is possible that after the determinations and selections made pursuant to Section
13.2(a) above the Executive will receive Change of Control Benefits that are, in the aggregate,
either more or less than the amounts contemplated by Section 13.2(a) above (hereafter referred to
as an Excess Payment or Underpayment, respectively). If there is an Excess Payment, the
