Under the 2021 form of Restricted Stock Units Award Agreement issued to the Executive Officers pursuant to the Plan, restricted stock units will vest pro rata over three years from the date of grant, subject to certain service-based requirements.
Under the 2021 form of Performance-Based Restricted Stock Units Award Agreement issued to the Executive Officers pursuant to the Plan (the “PBRSU Agreement”) the Executive Officers will be eligible to earn: (i) base award units (“Base Award Units”) based on the achievement of certain financial performance goals (the “Financial Performance Goals”) based on the Corporation’s non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP gross margin, and non-GAAP operating expense performance for the Corporation’s fiscal year ending December 31, 2021 (the “2021 Fiscal Year”); (ii) upside award units (“Upside Units”) based on the Corporation’s attainment of the Financial Performance Goals at or above the target levels set forth in the PBRSU Agreement for the 2021 Fiscal Year; and (iii) additional units based on the achievement of certain relative total shareholder return (“Relative TSR”) performance goals (the “TSR Multiplier Performance Goals,” and collectively with the Financial Performance Goals, the “Performance Goals”) for the 2021 Fiscal Year, the Corporation’s fiscal year ending December 31, 2022, and the Corporation’s fiscal year ending December 31, 2023 (such additional units collectively with the Base Award Units and the Upside Units, “PBRSUs”). Pursuant to the PBRSU Agreement, all earned Base Award Units and Upside Units will vest pro rata over three years from the date of grant, and the number of Base Award Units and Upside Units (if any) earned by each Executive Officer will be reduced by 50% if, at the time of measurement of any of the TSR Multiplier Performance Goals, the Corporation’s Relative TSR achievement is less than the 25th percentile for the applicable performance measurement period for such TSR Multiplier Performance Goal. The PBRSUs awarded to the Executive Officers will be settled in stock and will vest, if at all, subject to the Corporation’s achievement of the applicable Performance Goals during the applicable performance periods and subject to final determination by the Committee that the applicable Performance Goals have been achieved.
