WHEREAS, the Committee desires to make an award to the Grantee consisting of shares of restricted stock.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants contained herein, and other good and valuable consideration, including that provided under any non-compete or similar agreement, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby
acknowledged, CompuCredit and the Grantee hereby agree as follows:
