AMENDMENT NO. 1 TO
AMENDED AND RESTATED CHANGE IN CONTROL AGREEMENT
This Amendment No. 1 to the Amended and Restated Change in Control Agreement (the
Amendment), dated as of December 1, 2010, is made and entered into by and between B. Christopher
DiSantis, an individual (the Executive), and Hawk Corporation, a Delaware corporation (Hawk).
1. Hawk and the Executive are parties to the Amended and Restated Change in Control Agreement,
dated August 21, 2009 (the CIC Agreement) which provides that if the Executive is terminated in
connection with a change in control of Hawk that the Executive is entitled to certain benefits
including severance in exchange for the Executives agreement to abide by certain restrictive
covenants, including a covenant not to compete for a period of one year following the termination
of the Executives employment with Hawk (the Non-Compete Covenant).
2. On October 14, 2010, Carlisle Companies Incorporated (Carlisle), and Carlisles wholly
owned subsidiary, HC Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the Purchaser), entered into an
Agreement and Plan of Merger (the Merger Agreement) with Hawk. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement,
Carlisle and the Purchaser commenced a tender offer to purchase all of the issued and outstanding
shares of the Companys Class A common stock, including the associated Rights (as defined in the
Merger Agreement), at a purchase price of $50.00 per share in cash to be followed by a merger of
the Purchaser with and into Hawk (the Merger).
3. In exchange for certain payments to the Executive from Hawk, the Executive desires and has
agreed to extend the term of his Non-Compete Covenant by an additional one (1) year period and
subject such payments to Section 4.2 and Paragraph 3 of Exhibit B of the CIC Agreement.
4. Hawk and the Executive desire to amend the CIC Agreement in connection with the extension
of the term of the Executives Non-Compete Covenant.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises, the covenants, conditions, representations,
and agreements contained herein, the consummation by Carlisle of the transactions contemplated by
the Merger Agreement and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of
which are hereby acknowledged, the Executive covenants and agrees with Hawk as follows:
1. Non-Compete. In exchange for the payments described in paragraph 2 below, the Executive
has agreed to extend the term of the Non-Compete Covenant by an additional one (1) year period and
in accordance with Section 4.2 and Paragraph 3 of Exhibit B of the CIC Agreement, to subject such
payments to, and condition such payments upon, the Executives compliance with, the Restrictive
Covenants unless the Restrictive Covenants have expired under the terms of the CIC Agreement.
Therefore, the Executive and Hawk agree that the term of the Non-Compete Covenant as set forth in
Paragraph 3 of Exhibit B of the CIC
Agreement shall be two (2) years (the Extended Non-Compete Covenant). For purposes of the
Restricted Period definition, the Restricted Period shall be two (2) years for purposes of
Paragraphs 3 and 8(a) of Exhibit B of the CIC Agreement only, and the Restricted Period shall
remain one (1) year for all other purposes of Exhibit B of the CIC Agreement.
2. Additional Consideration. In consideration of the Executives agreement in paragraph 1
above with respect to the Extended Non-Compete Covenant, Hawk and the Executive expressly agree and
acknowledge that certain previously-disclosed bonus and additional payments to the Executive
totaling One Million Four Hundred Thousand Dollars ($1,400,000), of which Four Hundred Thousand
Dollars ($400,000) relates to the Executives success bonus in connection with the transactions
contemplated by the Merger Agreement, shall be in exchange for the Executives agreement to be
subject to the Extended Non-Compete Covenant. These payments shall be within 5 days following the
closing of the merger pursuant to the Merger Agreement.
3. Accountants Report. Section 3.3 of the CIC Agreement is hereby amended to add the
following as a new subsection:
(f) The Corporation agrees to provide the Executive with a copy of the report, including
all schedules and backup to such report and all data utilized in the preparation of such
report, prepared by its Accountants in accordance with paragraph (b) above, regarding the
determination of any and all compensation and benefits, including severance, in connection
with the Executives termination from employment and taxes related thereto.
4. Taxes. The Executive agrees that he alone shall be liable for, and shall release and hold
Hawk and its affiliates harmless from, any and all taxes solely imposed on the Executive relating
to the Payments (as defined below), including any income taxes, excise taxes, interest or penalties
that may be imposed on the Executive. The term Payments means any payments or benefits received
pursuant to the CIC Agreement, as well as any other payments or benefits received in connection
with a Change in Control or the Executives termination of employment (whether pursuant to the CIC
Agreement or any other plan, arrangement or agreement between the Executive and Hawk). Nothing in
this paragraph 4 shall amend or modify Section 3.3(c) of the CIC Agreement, which Section 3.3(c)
shall remain in full force and effect.
5. CIC Agreement. The CIC Agreement, as amended by this Amendment, shall remain in full force
and effect in accordance with its terms.
6. Capitalized Terms. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings
ascribed to them in the CIC Agreement.

by facsimile transmission) in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of
which shall constitute the same instrument.
