All Conversion Shares shall be duly authorized and, when issued upon such conversion in accordance with the Amended Certificate, shall be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable. (f) RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFER. The Purchasers will not, prior to the earlier of (a) December 31, 2004 or (b) the time of the closing of the Initial Public Offering, sell, transfer, assign, convey, gift, mortgage, pledge, encumber, hypothecate, or otherwise dispose of, directly or indirectly, ("TRANSFER") any of the Shares or any Conversion Shares except for (i) Transfers between and among the Purchasers and their Affiliates provided such Transfer is in accordance with the transfer restrictions applicable to the Shares or the Conversion Shares under federal and state securities laws and the Affiliate transferee agrees to be bound by the restrictions applicable to such Shares or Conversion Shares, including without limitation the agreements set forth in this Section 5(f), and (ii) Transfers (x) pursuant to a bona fide tender or exchange offer made pursuant to a merger or other agreement approved by the Board of Directors to acquire securities of the Company, (y) pursuant to any cash merger, or other business combination transaction to which the Company is a party or involved in which the common stock of the Company's stockholders is exchanged for cash upon consummation of such merger or other business -12- combination or (z) agreed to in writing by the Company. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 5(f), no Purchaser shall avoid the provisions of this Section 5(f) by making one or more transfers to one or more Affiliates and then disposing of all or any portion of such Purchaser's interest in any such Affiliate. (g) PREEMPTIVE RIGHT. If at any time the Company desires to issue or sell any shares of its capital stock or securities convertible, exercisable or exchangeable for the Company's capital stock (other than Non-Preemptive Shares) (the "ADDITIONAL SHARES") to any Person, the Company shall give a written notice (the "ISSUANCE NOTICE") to the Purchasers setting forth the proposed terms of the sale of such Additional Shares and the quantity of Additional Shares to be issued, the proposed issuance date and the price at which such Additional Shares shall be issued. Each of the Purchasers shall have the option to purchase the number of Additional Shares necessary to maintain such Purchaser's percentage of issued and outstanding shares of the Company at the time of the Issuance Notice, which option may be exercised by giving written notice to the Company (the "RESPONSE NOTICE") within 14 days of the Issuance Notice that contains an agreement to purchase all or any portion of the Additional Shares to which such Purchaser is entitled to purchase. Failure by a Purchaser to give the Response Notice to the Company within such 14-day period shall be deemed to be a rejection of such option. For a period of 180 days after any Issuance Notice, the Company shall have the right to issue or sell to any Person (a "THIRD PARTY BUYER") up to the number of Additional Shares specified in the Issuance Notice less the number of Additional Shares subscribed for pursuant to duly tendered Response Notices at the same price and on other terms not materially less favorable to the Company than as specified in the Issuance Notice. At the time of the closing of the sale of the Additional Shares to one or more Third Party Buyers, the Company shall sell to such Purchaser and such Purchaser shall purchase the Additional Shares that such Purchaser agreed to purchase in the Response Notice, at the price and on the terms set forth in the Issuance Notice. If at the end of the 180th day following any Issuance Notice, the Company has not completed the issuance described in the Issuance Notice, each Purchaser that has provided a Response Notice shall be released from its obligations thereunder. If the Company desires to issue or sell Additional Shares, (i) after such 180-day period, (ii) except in connection with an Initial Public Offering, on terms materially less favorable to the Company than as specified in the Issuance Notice, (iii) except in connection with an Initial Public Offering, at a price less than the price specified in the Issuance Notice or (iv) except in connection with an Initial Public Offering, in a quantity greater than as specified in the Issuance Notice, the Company must again comply with this Section 5(g). If the Company desires to take any of the actions set forth in clauses (ii), (iii) or (iv) of the prior sentence in connection with an Initial Public Offering, each Purchaser, at its option, shall be released from its obligations under its Response Notice. The rights and obligations of the parties pursuant to this Section 5(g) shall terminate upon the closing of an Initial Public Offering. (h) COMPLIANCE WITH SECURITIES LAWS. Such Purchaser understands that the Shares and the Conversion Shares will not be registered under the Securities Act or applicable state securities laws and agrees not to sell, pledge or otherwise transfer any of the Shares and Conversion Shares in the absence of such registration or an opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Company that such registration is not required, except that the requirement of a legal opinion will not apply to transfers by Putnam to any of its Affiliates. Except as set forth -13- in the Registration Rights Agreement, such Purchaser acknowledges that the Company is not required to register the Shares or the Conversion Shares. 6. CONDITIONS.

DUTIES. I shall render faithful and efficient services to CommVault and perform exclusively for CommVault such duties as may be designated by CommVault from time to time, which may include the functions of inventing, discovering and developing new and novel devices, methods, and principles relating to the business, research, and development of CommVault. 2. DISCLOSURE OF INVENTIONS. I shall promptly disclose to CommVault in writing all inventions (including, but not limited to, new contributions, concepts, ideas, developments, discoveries, processes, formulas, methods, compositions, techniques, articles, machines, and improvements), all original works of authorship and all related know-how ("Inventions"), whether or not patentable, copyrightable or protectable as trade secrets, conceived or made by me, alone or with others, during the period of my employment with CommVault and, in the case of clauses (b) and (c) below, during the period of my employment by CommVault and at any time after I cease to be employed by CommVault for whatever reason, which (a) relate in any manner to the actual or anticipated business, research, or development of CommVault, (b) are developed using equipment, supplies, facilities, trade secret or confidential information of CommVault, or (c) result from work performed by me or work supervised by me for CommVault. 3.

NON-COMPETITION AND NON-SOLICITATION. I acknowledge that because my knowledge of the CommVault Confidential Information and the personal contacts with the customers and employees of CommVault acquired by me during my employment, CommVault would be irreparably damaged should I, in any manner or form, enter into any form of competition with CommVault.

It is the desire and intent of the parties that the provisions of this Agreement shall be enforced to the fullest extent permissible under the laws and public policies applied by any jurisdiction where enforcement is sought. 12.
