Article III
 
ADMINISTRATION
 
The Plan shall be administered by the Administrator.  The Administrator shall have authority to grant Stock Awards, Stock Units, Options and SARs upon such terms (not inconsistent with the provisions of this Plan), as the Administrator may consider appropriate.  Such terms may include conditions (in addition to those contained in this Plan) on the exercisability of all or any part of an Option or SAR or on the transferability or forfeitability of a Stock Award, Incentive Awards, or an award of Stock Units, including by way of example and not of limitation, requirements that the Participant complete a specified period of employment or service with the Company or a Related Entity, requirements that the Company achieve a specified level of financial performance or that the Company achieve a specified level of financial return.  Notwithstanding any such conditions, the Administrator may, in its discretion, accelerate the time at which any Option or SAR may be exercised, or the time at which a Stock Award may become transferable or non-forfeitable or both, or the time at which an award of Stock Units or Incentive Award may be settled.  In addition, the Administrator shall have complete authority to interpret all provisions of this Plan; to prescribe the form of Agreements; to adopt, amend, and rescind rules and regulations pertaining to the administration of the Plan; and to make all other determinations necessary or advisable for the administration of this Plan.  The express grant in the Plan of any specific power to the Administrator shall not be construed as limiting any power or authority of the Administrator.  Any decision made, or action taken, by the Administrator in connection with the administration of this Plan shall be final and conclusive.  Neither the Administrator nor any member of the Committee or any delegate of the Committee shall be liable for any act, omission, interpretation, construction or determination made in good faith in connection with the Plan or with respect to any Agreement, Option, SAR, Stock Award or award of Stock Units.  All expenses of administering this Plan shall be borne by the Company, a Related Entity or a combination thereof.
 
The Committee, in its discretion, may delegate to one or more officers of the Company all or part of the Committee’s authority and duties with respect to grants and awards (i) to individuals who are not subject to the reporting and other provisions of Section 16 of the Exchange Act and (ii) that are not intended to qualify as “performance based compensation” for purposes of Section 162(m) of the Code.  The Committee may revoke or amend the terms of a delegation at any time but such action shall not invalidate any prior actions of the Committee’s delegate or delegates that were consistent with the terms of the Plan.

Article V
 
STOCK SUBJECT TO PLAN
 
5.01.
Shares Issued
 
Upon the award of shares of Common Stock pursuant to a Stock Award or in settlement of an award of Stock Units or Incentive Awards, the Company may issue shares of Common Stock from its authorized but unissued Common Stock.  Upon the exercise of any Option or SAR the Company may deliver to the Participant (or the Participant’s broker if the Participant so directs), shares of Common Stock from its authorized but unissued Common Stock.
 
5.02.
Aggregate Limit
 
The maximum aggregate number of shares of Common Stock that may be issued under this Plan, pursuant to the exercise of SARs and Options and the grant of Stock Awards and the settlement of Stock Units and Incentive Awards is 13,675,000 shares. The maximum aggregate number of shares that may be issued under this Plan and the maximum number of shares that may be issued as Stock Awards and in settlement of Stock Units and Incentive Awards shall be subject to adjustment as provided in Article XII.
 
5.03.
Reallocation of Shares
 
(a)           If an Award under the Plan (or portion thereof) is forfeited, is cancelled, expires, lapses or otherwise is terminated without being exercised or payment having been made in shares of Common Stock, the shares of Common Stock allocable to the forfeited, cancelled, expired, lapsed or otherwise terminated Award (or portion thereof) shall not be available for Awards to be granted under the Plan.
 
(b)             Shares of Common Stock that are tendered by a Participant or withheld as full or partial payment of withholding or other taxes with respect to an Award or as payment for the exercise of an Option, under this Plan shall not be reallocated to the number of shares of Common Stock available for Awards to be granted under this Plan.
 
(c)           Awards valued by reference to Common Stock that may be settled in equivalent cash value will count as shares of Common Stock delivered to the same extent as if the Award were settled in shares of Common Stock.  Awards that by their terms do not permit settlement in shares of Common Stock shall not reduce the number of shares of Common Stock available for issuance under the Plan.  Settlement of Incentive Awards will reduce the number of shares of Common Stock available for issuance to the extent settled in Common Stock.
 
(d)           Shares of Common Stock delivered under the Plan in settlement of an Award issued or made (i) upon the assumption, substitution, conversion or replacement of outstanding awards under a plan or arrangement of an acquired entity or (ii) as a post-transaction grant under such a plan or arrangement of an acquired entity shall not reduce or be counted against the maximum number of shares of Common Stock available for delivery under the Plan, to the

extent that the exemption for transactions in connection with mergers and acquisitions from the stockholder approval requirements of any national securities exchange on which the Common Stock is listed applies.
 
Consistent with the requirements specified above in this Section 5.03, the Committee may from time to time adopt and observe such procedures concerning the counting of shares against the Plan maximum as it may deem appropriate, including rules more restrictive than those set forth above to the extent necessary to satisfy the requirements of any national securities exchange on which the Common Stock is listed or any applicable regulatory requirement.

Article VI
 
OPTIONS
 
6.01.
Award
 
In accordance with the provisions of Article IV, the Administrator will designate each individual to whom an Option is to be granted and will specify the number of shares of Common Stock covered by each such award; provided, however, that no Participant may be granted Options in any calendar year covering more than 7,750,000 shares of Common Stock.
 
6.02.
Option Price
 
The price per share for Common Stock purchased on the exercise of an Option shall be determined by the Administrator on the date of grant, but shall not be less than the Fair Market Value on the date the Option is granted.  If an employee owns or is deemed to own (by reason of the attribution rules of Section 424(d)) of the Code more than 10 percent of the combined voting power of all classes of stock of the Company or any parent or subsidiary corporation (within the meaning of Sections 424(e) and 424(f) of the Code) (a “Ten Percent Shareholder”), and an incentive stock option is granted to such employee, the Option price of such incentive stock option shall be not less than 110 percent of the Fair Market Value on the grant date.
 
6.03.
Maximum Option Period
 
The maximum period in which an Option may be exercised is ten years from the date such Option was granted.  The maximum period in which an incentive stock option granted to a Ten Percent Shareholder may be exercised is five years from the date such incentive stock option was granted.  The terms of any Option may provide that it has a term that is less than such maximum period.
 
6.04.
Nontransferability
 
Except as provided in Section 6.05, each Option granted under this Plan shall be nontransferable except by will or by the laws of descent and distribution.  In the event of any transfer of an Option (by will or by the laws of descent and distribution), the Option and any Corresponding SAR that relates to such Option must be transferred to the same person or persons or entity or entities.  Except as provided in Section 6.05, during the lifetime of the Participant to whom the Option is granted, the Option may be exercised only by the Participant.  No right or interest of a Participant in any Option shall be liable for, or subject to, any lien, obligation, or liability of such Participant.
 
6.05.
Transferable Options
 
Section 6.04 to the contrary notwithstanding, to the extent the Agreement provides, an Option that is not an incentive stock option may be transferred by a Participant to the Participant’s Family Member, subject to applicable securities law requirements as in effect from
 

 
10

 

Hampton Roads Bankshares, Inc.
2011 Omnibus Incentive Plan (as revised)



time to time. The holder of an Option transferred pursuant to this Section shall be bound by the same terms and conditions that governed the Option during the period that it was held by the Participant; provided, however, that such transferee may not further transfer the Option except to the same extent as the Participant.  In the event of any transfer of an Option (by the Participant or his transferee), the Option and any Corresponding SAR that relates to such Option must be transferred to the same person or persons or entity or entities.
 
6.06.
Employee Status
 
For purposes of determining the applicability of Section 422 of the Code (relating to incentive stock options), or in the event that the terms of any Option provide that it may be exercised only during employment or continued service or within a specified period of time after termination of employment or service, the Administrator may decide to what extent leaves of absence for governmental or military service, illness, temporary disability, or other reasons shall not be deemed interruptions of continuous employment or service.
 
6.07.
Exercise
 
Subject to the provisions of this Plan and the applicable Agreement, an Option may be exercised in whole at any time or in part from time to time at such times and in compliance with such requirements as the Administrator shall determine; provided, however, that incentive stock options (granted under the Plan and all plans of the Company and its Related Entities) may not be first exercisable in a calendar year for stock having a Fair Market Value (determined as of the date an Option is granted) exceeding the limit prescribed by Section 422(d) of the Code.  An Option granted under this Plan may be exercised with respect to any number of whole shares less than the full number for which the Option could be exercised.  A partial exercise of an Option shall not affect the right to exercise the Option from time to time in accordance with this Plan and the applicable Agreement with respect to the remaining shares subject to the Option.  The exercise of an Option shall result in the termination of any Corresponding SAR to the extent of the number of shares with respect to which the Option is exercised.  No Option may include provisions that “reload” the Option upon exercise.
 
6.08.
Payment
 
Unless otherwise provided by the Agreement, payment of the Option price shall be made in cash or a cash equivalent acceptable to the Administrator.  Subject to rules established by the Administrator, and if provided in an Agreement, payment of all or part of the Option price may be made with shares of Common Stock, including by (i) surrender to the Company of shares of Common Stock and (ii) for Options not intended to be incentive stock options, receipt by the Participant of fewer shares that would otherwise be issuable on exercise of the option (“net exercise”).   If Common Stock is used to pay all or part of the Option price, the sum of the cash and cash equivalent and the Fair Market Value of the shares surrendered or withheld must not be less than the Option price of the shares for which the Option is being exercised.  Options may also be exercised through “cashless exercise” procedures approved by the Administrator involving a broker or dealer approved by the Administrator.

6.09. 
Shareholder Rights
 
No Participant shall have any rights as a shareholder with respect to shares subject to his Option until the date of exercise of such Option.
 
6.10.
Disposition of Stock
 
A Participant shall notify the Company of any sale or other disposition of Common Stock acquired pursuant to an Option that was an incentive stock option if such sale or disposition occurs (i) within two years of the grant of an Option or (ii) within one year of the issuance of the Common Stock to the Participant.  Such notice shall be in writing and directed to the Secretary of the Company.

Article VII
 
SARS
 
7.01.
Award
 
In accordance with the provisions of Article IV, the Administrator will designate each individual to whom SARs are to be granted and will specify the number of shares covered by each such award; provided, however, no Participant may be granted SARS in any calendar year covering more than 7,750,000 shares of Common Stock.  For purposes of the foregoing limit, an Option and Corresponding SAR shall be treated as a single award.  In addition, no Participant may be granted Corresponding SARs (under all incentive stock option plans of the Company and its Affiliates) that are related to incentive stock options which are first exercisable in any calendar year for stock having an aggregate Fair Market Value (determined as of the date the related Option is granted) that exceeds the limit prescribed by Section 422(d) of the Code.
 
7.02.
Maximum SAR Period
 
The maximum period in which a SAR may be exercised shall be ten years from the date such SAR was granted.  The terms of any SAR may provide that it has a term that is less than such maximum period.
 
7.03.
Nontransferability
 
Except as provided in Section 7.04, each SAR granted under this Plan shall be nontransferable except by will or by the laws of descent and distribution.  In the event of any such transfer, a Corresponding SAR and the related Option must be transferred to the same person or persons or entity or entities.  Except as provided in Section 7.04, during the lifetime of the Participant to whom the SAR is granted, the SAR may be exercised only by the Participant.  No right or interest of a Participant in any SAR shall be liable for, or subject to, any lien, obligation, or liability of such Participant.
 
7.04.
Transferable SARs
 
Section 7.03 to the contrary notwithstanding, to the extent the Agreement provides, a SAR that is not an incentive stock option may be transferred by a Participant to the Participant’s Family Member, subject to applicable securities law requirements as in effect from time to time. The holder of a SAR transferred pursuant to this Section shall be bound by the same terms and conditions that governed the SAR during the period that it was held by the Participant; provided, however, that such transferee may not further transfer the SAR except to the same extent as the Participant.  In the event of any transfer of a Corresponding SAR (by the Participant or his transferee), the Corresponding SAR and the related Option must be transferred to the same person or persons or entity or entities.

Hampton Roads Bankshares, Inc.
2011 Omnibus Incentive Plan (as revised)



7.05. 
Exercise
 
Subject to the provisions of this Plan and the applicable Agreement, a SAR may be exercised in whole at any time or in part from time to time at such times and in compliance with such requirements as the Administrator shall determine; provided, however, that a Corresponding SAR that is related to an incentive stock option may be exercised only to the extent that the related Option is exercisable and only when the Fair Market Value exceeds the option price of the related Option.  A SAR granted under this Plan may be exercised with respect to any number of whole shares less than the full number for which the SAR could be exercised.  A partial exercise of a SAR shall not affect the right to exercise the SAR from time to time in accordance with this Plan and the applicable Agreement with respect to the remaining shares subject to the SAR.  The exercise of a Corresponding SAR shall result in the termination of the related Option to the extent of the number of shares with respect to which the SAR is exercised.
 
7.06.
Employee Status
 
If the terms of any SAR provide that it may be exercised only during employment or continued service or within a specified period of time after termination of employment or service, the Administrator may decide to what extent leaves of absence for governmental or military service, illness, temporary disability or other reasons shall not be deemed interruptions of continuous employment or service.

ADJUSTMENT UPON CHANGE IN COMMON STOCK
 
11.01.
Antidilution Adjustments
 
(a)           To prevent the dilution or enlargement of benefits or potential benefits intended to be made available under the Plan, in the event of any corporate transaction or event such as a stock dividend, recapitalization, stock split, reverse stock split, reorganization, merger, consolidation, spin-off, combination or other similar corporate transaction or other event which, in the judgment of the Committee, affects the Common Stock with respect to which Awards have been or may be issued under the Plan (any such transaction or event, a “Transaction”), then the Committee shall, in such manner as the Committee deems equitable: (A) make a proportionate adjustment in (1) the maximum number and type of securities as to which awards may be granted under this Plan, (2) the number and type of securities subject to outstanding Awards, (3) the grant or exercise price with respect to any such Award, (4) the performance targets and goals appropriate to any outstanding Awards intended to qualify as “performance-based compensation” for purposes of Section 162(m) of the Code, and (5) the per individual limitations on the number of securities that may be awarded under the Plan (any such adjustment, an “Antidilution Adjustment”); provided, in each case, that with respect to Options intended to be “incentive stock options,” no such adjustment shall be authorized to the extent that such adjustment would cause such options to violate Section 422(b) of the Code or any successor provision; with respect to all Options, no such adjustment shall be authorized to the extent that such adjustment violates the provisions of Treasury Regulation 1.424-1 and Section 409A of the Code or any successor provisions; with respect to all Awards, no such adjustment shall violate the requirements applicable to Awards intended to qualify as “performance-based compensation” for purposes of Section 162(m) of the Code; and the number of shares of Stock subject to any Award denominated in shares shall always be a whole number; or (B) cause any Award outstanding as of the effective date of the Transaction to be cancelled in consideration of a cash payment or alternate Award (whether from the Company or another entity that is a participant in the Transaction) or a combination thereof made to the holder of such cancelled Award substantially equivalent in value to the fair value of such cancelled Award.  The determination of fair value shall be made by the Committee or the Board, as the case may be, in their sole discretion.  Any determination made by the Committee under this Section 11.01(a) shall be final and conclusive and shall be binding on all Participants.
 
(b)           Notwithstanding Section 11.01(a), the issuance by the Company of shares of stock of any class, or securities convertible into shares of stock of any class, for cash or property, or for labor or services, either upon direct sale or upon the exercise of rights or warrants to subscribe therefor, or upon conversion of shares or obligations of the Company convertible into such shares or other securities, shall not affect, and no adjustment by reason thereof shall be made with respect to, the maximum number of shares as to which Awards may be granted, the per individual limitations on the number of shares of Common Stock for which Awards may be granted or the terms of outstanding Awards.

Article XIII
 
GENERAL PROVISIONS
 
13.01.
Effect on Employment and Service
 
Neither the adoption of this Plan, its operation, nor any documents describing or referring to this Plan (or any part thereof), shall confer upon any individual any right to continue in the employ or service of the Company or a Related Entity or in any way affect any right or power of the Company or a Related Entity to terminate the employment or service of any individual at any time with or without assigning a reason therefor.

Each Participant shall be responsible for satisfying any income and employment tax withholding obligation attributable to participation in this Plan.  In accordance with procedures established by the Administrator, a Participant may surrender shares of Common Stock, or receive fewer shares of Common Stock than otherwise would be issuable, in satisfaction of all or part of the Participant’s minimum statutorily required withholding obligation.
