     This Amendment (this “Amendment”) is made as of this 12 day of June, 2013, between CalAmp Corp. (the “Company”) and Michael Burdiek (“Executive”).

RECITALS:

     A. The Company and Executive are parties to that certain Employment Agreement dated as of May 27, 2011 (the “Employment Agreement) pursuant to which Executive is employed by the Company.

     B. The Company and Executive desire to amend the terms of the Employment Agreement as set forth herein, effective as of June 12, 2013.

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and of the respective covenants and agreements set forth below, the parties hereto agree as follows:

  1. Section 1(e) of the Employment Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
         
      Renewal. Following the Initial Term, this Agreement was automatically extended for a period of one (1) year, through May 30, 2013 and following such one year period, this Agreement was again automatically extended for a period of one (1) year, through May 30, 2014. Beginning with the scheduled expiration of the Agreement on May 30, 2014 and in connection with any subsequent expiration date, the Company and Executive will review the Agreement and, if mutually agreed, extend the term of this Agreement for a period of at least two years. Failure by the Company to agree to an extension of this Agreement shall constitute termination without cause or disability and Executive shall be eligible for severance in accordance with Sections 6(d) and 6(f) or, if applicable, Sections 6(e) and 6(f).”
 
  2. The title of Section 6(d) of the Employment Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with “Termination Without Cause or Disability or for Good Reason.”
 
  3. Section 6(d)(i) of the Employment Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
 
Termination; Payment of Accrued Salary and Vacation. The Company may terminate Executive’s employment at any time for other than Cause or disability by providing written notice to Executive. The Executive may terminate his employment with Good Reason (as defined below) pursuant to the procedures set forth in Section 6(e). In such event (unless such termination would be covered by Section 6(e) below), the Company shall pay Executive as severance (A) subject to Section 6(d)(ii), an amount equal to six (6) months of his then Base Salary, less standard withholdings for tax and social security purposes, payable over such six (6) month term in monthly pro rata payments commencing as of the Termination Date (such monthly continued payments of Base Salary, the “Salary Continuation Benefit”); (B) the accrued portion of any vacation earned, less standard withholdings for tax and social security purposes; and (C) the Company will pay the premiums for continued coverage in the Company’s health and welfare plans under the continuation coverage provisions of COBRA for a period of twelve (12) months following the Termination Date (or the cash equivalent of such amount).



  4. Section 6(d)(ii) of the Employment Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
               
    Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall not be obligated to pay any termination payments under this Section 6(d) or Section 6(e) if Executive breaches the provisions of Sections 7 or 8 below.
 
  5. Section 6(d)(iii) of the Employment Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
 
Vesting Upon Termination. In the event Executive’s employment is terminated pursuant to this Section 6(d), Executive’s then unvested equity awards granted under the Company’s stock incentive plans after the Executive became an employee of the Company shall continue to vest for a period of six (6) months following the Termination Date, and, with respect to any options that are exercisable or become exercisable, such options shall remain exercisable for six (6) months following the Termination Date, subject to such longer period as may be provided by the Company’s 2004 Incentive Stock Plan.”
 
  6. Section 6(d)(iv) of the Employment Agreement is hereby amended by adding the following new sentence to the end thereof:
 
    “The benefits provided by this Section 6(d) or Section 6(e) will be forfeited on the twenty-eighth (28th) day following the Termination Date if the Company has not been provided with such a release by such date.”
 
  7. Section 6(e) of the Employment Agreement is hereby amended by deleting the first sentence thereof and replacing with the following:
 
“If, within the 3-month period preceding or the 12-month period following a Change of Control (as defined below), the Company terminates Executive’s employment for other than Cause or disability or Executive terminates his employment for Good Reason (as defined below), then (i) seventy five percent (75%) of Executive’s then unvested equity awards granted under the Company’s stock incentive plans after the Executive became an employee of the Company shall become vested and, with respect to any options that are exercisable or become exercisable, such options shall remain exercisable for twelve (12) months following the Termination Date, subject to such longer period as may be provided by the Company’s 2004 Incentive Stock Plan, (ii) the Executive shall be entitled to an amount equal to eighteen (18) months of his then Base Salary, less standard withholdings for tax and social security purposes, payable over such eighteen (18) month term in monthly pro rata payments commencing as of the Termination Date, (iii) the Executive shall be entitled to the accrued portion of any vacation earned, less standard withholdings for tax and social security purposes, (iv) the Executive shall be entitled to an amount equal to a pro-rata portion of his target bonus under the Company’s annual incentive plan based on the number of days worked in the year of termination, and (iv) the Company will pay the premiums for continued coverage in the Company’s health and welfare plans under the continuation coverage provisions of COBRA for a period of eighteen (18) months following the Termination Date (or the cash equivalent of such amount).
