CDK GLOBAL, INC. 2014 OMNIBUS AWARD PLAN
RESTRICTED STOCK UNIT AWARD AGREEMENT

CDK GLOBAL, INC. (the “Company”), pursuant to the 2014 Omnibus Award Plan (the “Plan”), hereby irrevocably grants to [NAME] (the “Participant”), on [DATE] (the “Grant Date”), a Restricted Stock Unit Award (the “Award”) of forfeitable restricted stock units of the Company (“RSUs”), each RSU representing the right to receive one share of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Common Stock”), or the cash value thereof, subject to the restrictions, terms and conditions herein.

WHEREAS, the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) has determined that it would be in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders to grant the award provided for herein to the Participant, on the terms and conditions described in this Restricted Stock Unit Award Agreement (this “Agreement”).

NOW, THEREFORE, for and in consideration of the promises and the covenants of the parties contained in this Agreement, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto, for themselves, and their permitted successors and assigns, hereby agree as follows:

1.Terms and Conditions.
(a)Award. Subject to the other terms and conditions contained in this Agreement and as otherwise provided in the Plan, the Company hereby grants to the Participant [NUMBER OF UNITS GRANTED] RSUs.
(b)Vesting. Subject to the other terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, the Restricted Period with respect to the Award shall lapse on [DATE(S)], subject to the continued employment of the Participant by the Company or any Subsidiary thereof through [each] such vesting date.
(c)Change in Control. Notwithstanding the forgoing, the Restricted Period with respect to the Award shall lapse immediately prior to the consummation of a Change in Control if the Participant is continuously employed by the Company until such time, unless, upon the Change in Control, the Award is continued, substituted or assumed (in accordance with Section 12 of the Plan) in a manner such that the securities underlying the Award following the Change in Control are traded on a “liquid market” (i.e., the Nasdaq Global Market, the New York Stock Exchange or a comparable international market in which the Participant is able to readily and without administrative complexity sell shares underlying the Award, as reasonably determined by the Board).
 

 

(d)Settlement. As soon as practicable after the date on which the Restricted Period lapses with respect to any RSUs, and in no event later than 30 days after such date, the Company shall deliver to the Participant, or his or her personal representative, a like number of shares of Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Company, or in the Company’s discretion, an amount in cash equal to the aggregate Fair Market Value of a like number of shares of Common Stock on the date of settlement, in each case subject to applicable withholding. If the Participant is a resident of or employed in a country other than the United States at the time of settlement, such RSUs shall be settled in cash equal to the aggregate Fair Market Value of a like number of shares of Common Stock on the date of settlement, subject to applicable withholding.
2.Forfeiture of Award.
(a)Termination of Employment Generally. Except as otherwise determined by the Compensation Committee of the Board (the “Committee”) in its sole discretion or as explicitly set forth herein, the unvested Award (including any Dividend Equivalents) shall be forfeited without consideration to the Participant effective upon the date of the Participant’s termination of employment with the Company or an Affiliate for any reason at any time prior to the expiration of the Restricted Period (and the Participant shall forfeit any rights to receive shares of Common Stock or cash in respect of the Award).

Unless the Company provides otherwise in writing to the Participant, the Participant’s employment will be considered terminated as of the date the Participant ceases to actively provide services to the Company or any Affiliate (regardless of the reason for such termination and whether or not the termination is later found to be invalid or in breach of employment laws in the jurisdiction where the Participant is employed). Any right to vest in the Award will terminate as of the date described in the previous sentence and will not be extended by any notice period (e.g., the Participant’s period of service would not include any contractual notice period or any period of “garden leave” or similar period mandated under applicable law).

(b)Termination of Employment after First Anniversary of Grant Date Due to Retirement. In the event that, after the first anniversary of the Grant Date, the Participant’s employment with the Company or an Affiliate is terminated due to “retirement” (defined for purposes of this Agreement as a termination of employment on or after attaining (i) age 65 or (ii) age 55 with 10 credited years of service with the Company or any Affiliate), the Participant shall be entitled to receive a prorated portion of the next scheduled vesting installment of the Award as follows: the number of RSUs equal to: (a) a fraction of the RSUs granted hereunder (1) the numerator of which shall be the number of months completed from the Grant Date through the Participant’s last day of active employment; and (2) the denominator of which shall be the total number of months from the Grant Date through the final scheduled vesting date; minus (b) the number of RSUs for which the Restricted Period had lapsed prior to termination of employment. Any Shares represented by the Award that vest under this Section 2(b) shall settle in accordance with the original schedule set forth in Section 1(d) of this Agreement (as if such termination of employment did not occur). For the avoidance of doubt, if the Participant’s employment is terminated prior to the first anniversary of the Grant Date for any reason other than death or Disability, the Award and any rights to receive shares of Common Stock, cash and Dividend Equivalents with respect thereto, will be forfeited without consideration.
 2 

 

(c)Termination of Employment Due to Death or Disability. In the event that, after the Grant Date, the Participant’s employment with the Company or an Affiliate is terminated due to death or Disability (as defined in the Plan) the Restricted Period for any unvested portion of the Award shall lapse immediately. Any Shares represented by the Award that vest under this Section 2(c) shall settle in accordance with the original schedule set forth in Section 1(d) of this Agreement (as if such termination of employment did not occur).
3.Incorporation by Reference. The provisions of the Plan are hereby incorporated herein by reference. Except as otherwise expressly set forth herein, this Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the provisions of the Plan, and any capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Agreement shall have the definitions set forth in the Plan.
4.Compliance with Legal Requirements. The granting and delivery of the Award, and any other obligations of the Company under this Agreement, shall be subject to all applicable federal, state, local and foreign laws, rules and regulations and to such approvals by any regulatory or governmental agency as may be required by applicable law, rules or regulations.

If the Participant is a resident of or employed in a country that is a member of the European Union, the grant of the Award and this Agreement are intended to comply with the applicable age discrimination provisions of the EU Equal Treatment Framework Directive, as may be implemented into local law (the “Age Discrimination Rules”). To the extent that a court or tribunal of competent jurisdiction determines that any provision of the Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, under the Age Discrimination Rules, the Company and the Participant agree that the Company, in its sole discretion, shall have the power and authority to revise or strike such provision to the minimum extent necessary to render it valid and enforceable to the full extent permitted under local law.

5.Transferability. The Award may not be assigned, alienated, pledged, attached, sold or otherwise transferred or encumbered by the Participant other than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution and any such purported assignment, alienation, pledge, attachment, sale, transfer or encumbrance shall be void and unenforceable against the Company or an Affiliate.
6.Dividend Equivalents. For Participants whose home country is the United States, each RSU granted hereunder shall entitle the Participant to be credited with dividend equivalent payments (upon the payment by the Company of dividends on shares of Common Stock) in cash as of the date of payment (“Dividend Equivalents”), which accumulated Dividend Equivalents (without interest) shall be payable at the same time as the underlying RSUs are settled following the release of restrictions on such RSUs, and if such RSUs are forfeited, the Participant shall have no right to such Dividend Equivalent payments.
 3 

 

7.No Rights as a Stockholder. The Participant shall not have any rights as a stockholder of the Company, including voting rights, with respect to any shares of Common Stock corresponding to the RSUs granted hereby unless and until shares of Common Stock are issued to the Participant in respect thereof.
8.Restrictive Covenants; Mutual Arbitration; Clawback.
(a)Restrictive Covenants; Mutual Arbitration. For Participants whose home country is the United States, the effectiveness of the Award granted hereunder is conditioned upon the Participant’s agreement to: (i) this Agreement; (ii) the Restrictive Covenant Agreement furnished herewith and which includes, among other provisions, certain non-competition, non-solicitation and non-disclosure covenants; and (iii) the Company’s Mutual Arbitration Agreement without opting out of same. If such Participant does not agree (whether electronically or otherwise) to this Agreement, the Restrictive Covenant Agreement, and the Mutual Arbitration Agreement within ninety (90) days from the date of the Award, the Award shall be terminable by the Company. For such Participants, continued effectiveness of the Award granted hereunder is further conditioned upon the continued effectiveness of the Mutual Arbitration Agreement between such Participant and the Company through the date of settlement.
(b)Clawback/Forfeiture. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, to the extent permitted under applicable law, the Award may be forfeited without consideration if the Participant, as determined by the Committee in its sole discretion (i) engages in an activity that is in conflict with or adverse to the interests of the Company or any Affiliate, including but not limited to fraud or conduct contributing to any financial restatements or irregularities, as determined by the Committee in its sole discretion, or (ii) without the consent of the Company, while employed by or providing services to the Company or any Affiliate or after termination of such employment or service, violates a non-competition, non-solicitation or non-disclosure covenant or agreement between the Participant and the Company or any Affiliate. If the Participant engages in any activity referred to in the preceding sentence, the Participant shall, at the sole discretion of the Committee, forfeit any gain realized in respect of the RSUs (which gain shall be deemed to be an amount equal to the Fair Market Value, on the applicable date of distribution, of the gross number of shares of Common Stock delivered to the Participant, if any, plus the gross amount of any cash paid to the Participant, upon settlement of the RSUs, if any), and repay such gain to the Company. The Award, and all incentive based compensation payable pursuant to the Award, shall be subject to (i) the Company’s compensation recovery, “clawback” or similar policy, as may be in effect from time to time and (ii) any compensation recovery, “clawback” or similar policy made applicable by law including the provisions of Section 945 of the U.S. Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and the rules, regulations and requirements adopted thereunder by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and/or any national securities exchange on which the Company’s equity securities may be listed.

9.Acknowledgements and Agreements. The Participant agrees, accepts and acknowledges the following:
(a)THE AWARD AND THIS AGREEMENT DO NOT CREATE AN EXPRESS OR IMPLIED PROMISE OF CONTINUED EMPLOYMENT FOR ANY PERIOD, AND WILL NOT INTERFERE IN ANY WAY WITH THE PARTICIPANT’S RIGHT OR THE RIGHT OF THE COMPANY TO TERMINATE THE PARTICIPANT’S EMPLOYMENT OR SERVICE AT ANY TIME, WITH OR WITHOUT CAUSE.
(b)The delivery of the Plan, this Agreement, the Plan’s prospectus and any reports of the Company provided generally to the Company’s shareholders may be made by electronic delivery.

(c)The Plan is established voluntarily by the Company, it is discretionary in nature, and may be amended, suspended or terminated by the Company at any time, to the extent permitted by the Plan.
(d)The grant of the Award is voluntary and occasional and does not create any contractual or other right to receive future grants of awards, or benefits in lieu of an award, even if an award has been granted in the past. Except where provided otherwise by applicable law, nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed as giving the Participant any right to be retained, in any position, as an employee, consultant or director of the Company or its Affiliates or shall interfere with or restrict in any way the right of the Company or its Affiliates, which are hereby expressly reserved, to remove, terminate or discharge the Participant with or without cause at any time for any reason whatsoever. Although over the course of employment terms and conditions of employment may change, the at-will term of employment will not change.
 5 

 

(e)All decisions regarding future Awards, if any, will be at the sole discretion of the Company.
(f)The Award is not intended to replace any pension rights or compensation.
(g)The Award and the income and value of same, are not part of normal or expected compensation for any purpose, including for purposes of calculating any severance, resignation, termination, redundancy, dismissal, end-of-service payments, bonuses, holiday pay, long-service awards, pension or retirement or welfare benefits or similar payments.
(h)Neither the Company nor any Affiliate will be liable for any foreign exchange rate fluctuation between the Participant’s local currency and the United States Dollar that may affect the value of the Award or of any amounts due to the Participant pursuant to the settlement of the Award.
(i)Except if the Participant resides or is employed in the United States of America, (i) the grant of the Award is not intended to be a public offering of securities in the Participant’s country of residence (and country of employment, if different) and (ii) the Company has not submitted any registration statement, prospectus or other filings with the local securities authorities (unless otherwise required under local law), and the grant of the Award is not subject to the supervision of the local securities authorities.
10.Miscellaneous.
(a)Appendix. If applicable, the Award is subject to any special terms and conditions for the country set forth in the Appendix. If the Participant relocates to another country, the special terms and conditions for that country (if any) will apply to the Participant to the extent the Company determines that applying such terms and conditions are necessary or advisable in order to comply with local law or facilitate the administration of the Plan.
(b)Language. If the Participant has received this Agreement or any other document related to the Plan translated into a language other than English and if the meaning of the translated version is different from the English version, the English version will control.
(c)Waiver. Any right of the Company contained in this Agreement may be waived in writing by the Committee. No waiver of any right hereunder by any party shall operate as a waiver of any other right, or as a waiver of the same right with respect to any subsequent occasion for its exercise, or as a waiver of any right to damages. No waiver by any party of any breach of this Agreement shall be held to constitute a waiver of any other breach or a waiver of the continuation of the same breach.
(d)Data Privacy.
 6 

 

(i)The Participant hereby explicitly and unambiguously consents to the collection, use and transfer, in electronic or other form, of the Participant’s personal data as described in this Agreement and any other grant materials by and among, as applicable, the Company or any Affiliate for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Participant’s participation in the Plan.
(ii)The Participant understands that the Company and any Affiliate may hold certain personal information about the Participant, including, but not limited to, the Participant’s name, home address and telephone number, date of birth, social insurance number or other identification number, salary, nationality, residency, status, job title, any shares of stock or directorships held in the Company or any Affiliate, details of the Award or any other entitlement to stock awarded, canceled, exercised, vested, unvested or outstanding in the Participant’s favor (collectively “Data”), for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Plan.
(iii)The Participant understands that Data will be transferred to the Company, its Affiliates, advisors, or one or more stock plan service providers as may be selected by the Company from time to time, which is assisting the Company with the implementation, administration and management of the Plan. The Participant understands that the recipients of the Data may be located in the United States or elsewhere, and that the recipient’s country of operation (e.g., the United States) may have different data privacy laws and protections than the Participant’s country. The Participant understands that if he or she resides outside the United States, the Participant may request a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of the Data by contacting the Participant’s local human resources representative. The Participant authorizes the Company and any other possible recipients which may assist the Company (presently or in the future) with implementing, administering and managing the Plan to receive, possess, use, retain and transfer the Data, in electronic or other form, for the sole purposes of implementing, administering and managing the Participant’s participation in the Plan. The Participant understands that Data will be held only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage the Participant’s participation in the Plan. The Participant understands that if he or she resides outside the United States, the Participant may, at any time, view Data, request additional information about the storage and processing of Data, require any necessary amendments to Data or refuse or withdraw the consents herein, in any case without cost, by contacting in writing his or her local human resources representative. Further, the Participant understands that he or she is providing the consents herein on a purely voluntary basis. If the Participant does not consent, or if the Participant later seeks to revoke his or her consent, the Participant’s engagement as an employee and career with the Company will not be adversely affected; the only consequence of refusing or withdrawing the Participant’s consent is that the Company would not be able to grant the Participant any Award or other equity awards or administer or maintain such awards. Therefore, the Participant understands that refusing or withdrawing his or her consent may affect the Participant’s ability to participate in the Plan. For more information on the consequences of the Participant’s refusal to consent or withdrawal of consent, the Participant understands that he or she may contact his or her local human resources representative.

(e)Severability. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of this Agreement shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Agreement and each other provision of this Agreement shall be severable and enforceable to the extent permitted by law.
(f)Successors. The terms of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Company, its successors and assigns, the Participant and the beneficiaries, executors, administrators, heirs and successors of the Participant.
(g)Entire Agreement. This Agreement and the Plan contain the entire agreement and understanding of the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter contained herein and supersede all prior communications, representations and negotiations in respect thereto; provided, that neither this Agreement nor the Plan shall supersede any portion of any severance plan adopted by the Board from time to time in which the Participant is eligible for severance benefits that provides for vesting or continued survival of equity awards upon a severance-eligible termination of employment that is more favorable than as set forth herein or in the Plan. No change, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement shall be valid unless the same be in writing and signed by the parties hereto, except for any changes permitted without consent of the Participant under the Plan.
(h)Governing Law. This Agreement shall be construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to principles of conflicts of law thereof, or principles of conflicts of laws of any other jurisdiction which could cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Delaware.

APPENDIX

In addition to the terms of the CDK Global Inc. 2014 Omnibus Award Plan (the “Plan”) and the Restricted Stock Unit Award Agreement (the “Agreement”), this Appendix includes additional terms and conditions that govern the Awards granted to the Participant if he or she resides in one of the countries listed below. Except as may otherwise be defined below, all defined terms contained in this Appendix shall have the same meaning set forth in the Plan and the Agreement. To the extent that the Participant relocates his or her residency and/or employment to another country, the additional terms and conditions as set forth in the appendix for such country (if any) shall also apply to the Award to the extent that the Company determines, in its sole discretion, that the application of such appendix is necessary or advisable in order to comply with local laws, rules and regulations, or to facilitate the operation and administration of the Award and the Plan (or the Company may establish additional special terms and conditions as may be necessary or advisable to accommodate the Participant’s transfer).

The Participant’s country of residence may have certain foreign asset and/or account reporting requirements, which may affect the Participant’s ability to acquire or hold cash received from participating in the Plan in a brokerage or bank account outside the Participant’s country of residence. Participants may be required to report such accounts, assets or transactions to the tax or other authorities in their country. Each Participant is responsible for ensuring his or her compliance with such regulations, and Participants should discuss this matter with their personal legal and/or tax advisor.

The Participant understands that the Company is under no obligation to seek approval or clearance from any governmental authority for the grant of the Award and/or any payment pursuant to the Award. Further, the Participant agrees that the Company shall have unilateral authority to amend the Agreement without the Participant’s consent to the extent necessary to comply with laws applicable to the Award.

The Participant acknowledges that, regardless of any action taken by the Company or, if different, the Participant’s employer (the “Employer”), the ultimate liability for all income tax, social insurance, payroll tax, fringe benefits tax, payment on account or other tax-related items related to the Participant’s participation in the Plan and legally applicable to the Participant or deemed by the Company or the Employer in its discretion to be an appropriate charge to the Participant even if legally applicable to the Company or the Employer (“Tax-Related Items”) is and remains the Participant’s responsibility and may exceed the amount actually withheld by the Company or the Employer. The Participant acknowledges that the Company and/or the Employer (1) make no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related Items in connection with any aspect of the Award, including, but not limited to, the grant, vesting or settlement of the Award; and (2) do not commit to and are under no obligation to structure the terms of the grant or any aspect of the Award to reduce or eliminate the Participant’s liability for Tax-Related Items or achieve any particular tax result. Further, if the Participant is subject to Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction, the Participant acknowledges that the Company and/or the Employer (or former employer, as applicable) may be required to withhold or account for Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction.

 

 

Prior to any relevant taxable or tax withholding event, the Participant agrees, if requested by the Company, to make adequate arrangements satisfactory to the Company and/or the Employer to satisfy all Tax-Related Items. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, the Participant authorizes the Company and/or the Employer, or their respective agents, at their discretion, to satisfy their withholding obligations with regard to all Tax-Related Items by one or a combination of the following: (i) withholding from the Participant’s wages or other cash compensation paid to Participant by the Company and/or the Employer; or (ii) withholding from the payment to be made to the Participant upon vesting or settlement, as the Company may determine, of the Award. The Company may withhold or account for Tax-Related Items by considering applicable minimum statutory withholding rates or other applicable withholding rates, including maximum applicable rates.

The Participant agrees to pay to the Company or the Employer any amount of Tax-Related Items that the Company or the Employer may be required to withhold or account for as a result of the Participant’s participation in the Plan that cannot be satisfied by the means previously described. The Company may refuse to make a payment pursuant to this Agreement if the Participant fails to comply with Participant’s obligations in connection with the Tax-Related Items.

Forfeiture. The last sentence of Section 1(d) (Terms and Conditions - Payment) of the Agreement is amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

Any right to vest and receive the Award, will terminate effective as of the date that is the earlier of: (i) the date the Participant receives notice of termination of employment from the Company or the Participant’s employer or (ii) the date the Participant is no longer actively employed by the Company or the Participant’s employer regardless of any notice period or period of pay in lieu of such notice required under local law (including, but not limited to statutory law, regulatory law and/or common law). The Participant’s right, if any, to receive a cash payment in settlement of the Award after termination of employment will be measured by the date of termination of the Participant’s active employment and will not be extended by any notice period mandated under local law.

 

The following provisions apply if the Participant is a resident of Quebec:

Language Consent. The parties acknowledge that it is their express wish that this Agreement, as well as all documents, notices and legal proceedings entered into, given or instituted pursuant hereto or relating directly or indirectly hereto, be drawn up in English.

Les parties reconnaissent avoir expressement souhaité que la convention [“Award Agreement”], ainsi que tous les documents, avis et procédures judiciaries, éxecutés, donnés ou intentés en vertu de, ou lié, directement ou indirectement à la présente convention, soient rédigés en langue anglaise.

The Participant hereby authorizes the Company and the Company’s representatives to discuss with and obtain all relevant information from all personnel, professional or not, involved in the administration and operation of the Plan. The Participant further authorizes the Company and any Affiliate and the Committee to disclose and discuss the Plan with their advisors.

Form and Timing of Payment. The following provision supplements Section 1(c) (Terms and Conditions - Payment) of the Agreement.

Denmark

Danish Stock Option Act. In accepting the Award, the Participant acknowledges that he or she has received an Employer Statement translated into Danish, which is being provided to comply with the Danish Stock Option Act. To the extent more favorable to the Participant and required to comply with the Stock Option Act, the terms set forth in the Employer Statement will apply to the Participant’s participation in the Plan.

Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information.  If the Participant establishes an account holding cash outside of Denmark, the Participant must report the account to the Danish Tax Administration. The form which should be used in this respect can be obtained from a local bank. (These obligations are separate from and in addition to the obligations described below.)

Tax Reporting Information.  If the Participant opens a brokerage or bank account with a U.S. bank, the account will be treated as a “deposit account” because cash can be held in the account. Therefore, the Participant also must file a Form K (Erklaering K) with the Danish Tax Administration. Both the Participant and the broker/bank must sign the Form K, unless an exemption from the broker/bank signature requirement is obtained from the Danish Tax Administration. It is possible to seek an exemption on the Form K, which the Participant should do at the time he or she submits the Form K. By signing the Form K, the Participant and the broker or bank undertake an obligation, without further request each year, to forward information to the Danish Tax Administration concerning the content of the account as part of the Participant’s annual income tax return. By signing the Form K, the Participant authorizes the Danish Tax Administration to examine the account. A sample of Form K can be found at the following website: www.skat.dk. The Participant should consult with his or her personal advisor for additional information regarding compliance with current regulations.

Spain

Nature of Grant. In accepting the Award, the Participant consents to participate in the Plan and acknowledges that he or she has received a copy of the Plan.

The Participant understands that the Company has unilaterally, gratuitously, and in its sole discretion decided to grant the Award under the Plan to individuals who may be employees of the Company or one of its Affiliates throughout the world. The decision is a limited decision that is entered into upon the express assumption and condition that any grant will not bind the Company or any Affiliate, other than to the extent set forth in the Agreement. Consequently, the Participant understands that the grant of the Award is made on the assumption and condition that the Award is not part of any employment contract (either with the Company or any Affiliate), and shall not be considered a mandatory benefit, salary for any purposes (including severance compensation) or any other right whatsoever. Further, the Participant understands that the grant of the Award would not be made but for the assumptions and conditions referred to above; thus, he or she acknowledges and freely accept that, should any or all of the assumptions be mistaken or should any of the conditions not be met for any reason, then any grant of or right to the Award shall be null and void.

Further, the vesting of the PSUs is expressly conditioned on the Participant’s continued and active rendering of service, such that if the Participant’s employment terminates for any reason whatsoever, the Units may cease vesting immediately, in whole or in part, effective on the date of the Participant’s termination of employment (unless otherwise specifically provided in Section 1 of the Agreement). This will be the case, for example, even if (i) the Participant is considered to be unfairly dismissed without good cause (i.e., subject to a “despido improcedente”); (ii) the Participant is dismissed for disciplinary or objective reasons or due to a collective dismissal; (iii) the Participant terminates service due to a change of work location, duties or any other employment or contractual condition; (iv) the Participant terminate services due to a unilateral breach of contract by the Company or an Affiliate; or (v) the Participant’s employment terminates for any other reason whatsoever. Consequently, upon termination of the Participant’s employment for any of the above reasons, the Participant may automatically lose any rights to Units that were not vested on the date of the Participant’s termination of employment, as described in the Plan and the Agreement.

The Participant acknowledges that he or she has read and specifically accepts the conditions referred to in Section 1 of the Agreement.

Tax Reporting Obligation for Assets Held Abroad. Individuals in Spain are required to report assets and right located outside of Spain (which would include any funds held in a U.S. brokerage account) on Form 720 by March 31st after each calendar year. A report is not required if the value of assets held outside of Spain is EUR 50,000 or less or, after such accounts are initially reported, if the assets held outside of Spain have not increased by more than EUR 20,000 compared to the previous year. The Participant should consult with his or her personal advisor for additional information regarding compliance with current regulations.

Exchange Control Information. The Participant must declare the acquisition of stock in a foreign company to the Dirección General de Política Comercial e Inversiones Exteriores (“DGPCIE”) of the Ministerio de Economia for statistical purposes. He or she must also declare ownership of any stock in a foreign company with the Directorate of Foreign Transactions each January while the stock is owned. In addition, if the Participant wishes to import the share certificates into Spain, he or she must declare the importation of such securities to the DGPCIE.

Securities Disclaimer. Neither the Agreement nor the Appendix is an approved prospectus for the purposes of section 85(1) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (“FSMA”) and no offer of transferable securities to the public (for the purposes of section 102B of FSMA) is being made in connection with the Plan. The Plan and the Award is exclusively available in the UK to bona fide employees and former employees.

Tax Reporting and Payment Liability. The Participant agrees that the Company or an Affiliate may calculate the Tax-Related Items to be withheld and accounted for by reference to the maximum applicable rates, without prejudice to any right the Participant may have to recover any overpayment from relevant U.K. tax authorities. If payment or withholding of any income tax liability arising in connection with the Participant’s participation in the Plan is not made by the Participant to the Company within ninety (90) days of the event giving rise to such income tax liability or such other period specified in Section 222(1)(c) of the Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003 (the “Due Date”), the Participant understands and agrees that the amount of any uncollected income tax will constitute a loan owed by the Participant to the Company, effective on the Due Date. The Participant understands and agrees that the loan will bear interest at the then-current official rate of Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (“HMRC”), it will be immediately due and repayable by the Participant, and the Company and/or an Affiliate may recover it at any time thereafter by any of the means referred to in the Plan and/or this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Participant understands and agrees that if he or she is a director or an executive officer of the Company, he or she will not be eligible for such a loan to cover the income tax liability. In the event that the Participant is a director or executive officer and the income tax is not collected from or paid by the Participant by the Due Date, the Participant understands that the amount of any uncollected income tax will constitute an additional benefit to the Participant on which additional income tax and National Insurance Contributions will be payable. The Participant understands and agrees that he or she will be responsible for reporting and paying any income tax due on this additional benefit directly to HMRC under the self-assessment regime and for reimbursing the Company or any Affiliate (as appropriate) for the value of any primary and (to the extent legally possible) secondary class 1 national insurance contributions due on this additional benefit which the Company or any Affiliate may recover from the Participant by any of the means referred to in the Plan and/or this Agreement.

Joint Election. Tax-Related Items shall include Primary and to the extent legally possible Secondary Class 1 National Insurance Contributions.

As a necessary condition of participation in the Plan, the Participant agrees to accept any liability for all secondary Class 1 National Insurance Contributions which may be payable by the Company and/or any Affiliate employing or retaining the Participant in connection with the Award and any event giving rise to Tax-Related Items (the “Employer’s NICs”). Without limitation to the foregoing, the Participant agrees to enter into a joint election with the Company (the “Joint Election”), the form of such Joint Election being formally approved by HMRC, and to execute any other consents or elections required to accomplish the transfer of the entirety of Employer’s NICs to the employee. The Participant further agrees to execute such other joint elections as may be required between the Participant and any successor to the Company and/or any Affiliate employing or retaining the Participant. The Participant further agrees that the Company and/or any Affiliate employing or retaining the Participant may collect the Employer’s NICs from him or her by any of the means set forth herein.

If the Participant does not enter into a Joint Election, if approval of the Joint Election has been withdrawn by HMRC or if such Joint Election is jointly revoked by the Participant and the Company or any Affiliate employing or retaining the Participant, as applicable, the Company, in its sole discretion and without any liability to the Company or any Affiliate employing or retaining the Participant, may choose not to issue or deliver any amounts due to the Participant upon vesting of the Award.

CDK GLOBAL, INC. 2014 OMNIBUS AWARD PLAN
PERFORMANCE STOCK UNIT AWARD AGREEMENT

CDK GLOBAL, INC. (the “Company”), pursuant to the 2014 Omnibus Award Plan (the “Plan”), hereby irrevocably grants to [NAME] (the “Participant”), on [DATE] (the “Grant Date”), a Performance Stock Unit Award (the “Award”) of forfeitable performance stock units of the Company (“PSUs”), each PSU representing the right to receive one share of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Common Stock”), or the cash value thereof, subject to the restrictions, terms and conditions herein.

WHEREAS, the Participant has been selected as a participant in the three-year PSU program of the Company covering the Company’s [YEAR], [YEAR] and [YEAR] fiscal years; and

WHEREAS, the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) has determined that it would be in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders to grant the award provided for herein to the Participant, on the terms and conditions described in this Performance Stock Unit Award Agreement (this “Agreement”).

NOW, THEREFORE, for and in consideration of the promises and the covenants of the parties contained in this Agreement, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto, for themselves, and their permitted successors and assigns, hereby agree as follows:

1.Terms and Conditions.
(a)Award. Subject to the other terms and conditions contained in this Agreement and as otherwise provided in the Plan, the actual number of PSUs that are earned, if any, pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Award (the “Total Award”) will be determined by the Company and shall be computed in accordance with Section 3 below, as a percentage of the sum of (i) [NUMBER OF TARGET UNITS GRANTED] PSUs (the “Target Award”) plus (ii) any Dividend Equivalent PSUs (as defined below). The Total Award shall be a whole number of PSUs only.
(b)Performance Period. Subject to the other terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, the performance period for the Award commenced on [DATE], and shall terminate on [DATE] (the “Performance Period”).
(c)Dividend Equivalents. Until shares of Common Stock are delivered to the Participant in respect of the settlement of the Award, at no time shall the Participant be deemed for any purpose to be the owner of shares of Common Stock in connection with the Award and the Participant shall have no right to dividends in respect of the Award; provided, however, that each time the Company pays a dividend with respect to a share of Common Stock during the period from the Grant Date to the Payout Date (as defined below), the Participant shall be credited with an additional number of PSUs (the “Dividend Equivalent PSUs”) equal to (i) the quotient obtained by dividing the amount of such dividend by the Fair Market Value (as defined in the Plan) of a share of Common Stock on such date, multiplied by (ii) the Total Award.
 

 

(d)Settlement. Subject to the other terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, the Company shall settle the Award by causing one share of Common Stock for each PSU in the Total Award that is outstanding (and not previously forfeited) as of the Payout Date to be registered in the name of the Participant and held in book-entry form on the Payout Date, or in the Company’s sole discretion, shall settle the Award by the payment to the Participant in cash (without interest) of an amount equal to the Fair Market Value of the PSUs in the Total Award that is outstanding (and not previously forfeited) as of the Payout Date, in each case subject to applicable withholding. If the Participant is a resident of or employed in a country other than the United States at the time of settlement, subject to the other terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, the Company shall settle the Award by the payment to the Participant in cash (without interest) of an amount equal to the Fair Market Value of the PSUs (the U.S. dollar value of the Participant’s PSUs will be converted into the Participant’s local currency using the exchange rate determined by the Company) in the Total Award that is outstanding (and not previously forfeited) as of the Payout Date, subject to applicable withholding.
2.Forfeiture of PSUs.
(a)Termination of Employment Generally. Except as otherwise determined by the Compensation Committee of the Board (the “Committee”) in its sole discretion or as explicitly set forth herein, all PSUs and Dividend Equivalent PSUs shall be forfeited without consideration to the Participant effective upon the date of the Participant’s termination of employment with the Company or an Affiliate for any reason at any time prior to the expiration of the Performance Period (and the Participant shall forfeit any rights to receive shares of Common Stock or cash in respect of the Award).

Unless the Company provides otherwise in writing to the Participant, the Participant’s employment will be considered terminated as of the date the Participant ceases to actively provide services to the Company or any Affiliate (regardless of the reason for such termination and whether or not the termination is later found to be invalid or in breach of employment laws in the jurisdiction where the Participant is employed). Any right to vest in the Award will terminate as of the date described in the previous sentence and will not be extended by any notice period (e.g., the Participant’s period of service would not include any contractual notice period or any period of “garden leave” or similar period mandated under applicable law).

(b)Termination of Employment on or after Completion of the First Fiscal Year of the Performance Period Due to Retirement. In the event that, on or after the last business day of the Company’s [YEAR] fiscal year and prior to completion of the Performance Period, the Participant’s employment with the Company or an Affiliate is terminated due to “retirement” (defined for purposes of this Agreement as a termination of employment on or after attaining (i) age 65 or (ii) age 55 with 10 credited years of service with the Company or any Affiliate), the Participant shall be entitled to receive a prorated portion of the Award determined in accordance with Section 3. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Participant’s employment is terminated prior to the last business day of the Company’s [YEAR] fiscal year and prior to completion of the Performance Period for any reason other than death or Disability, the Award and any rights to receive shares of Common Stock, cash and Dividend Equivalent PSUs with respect thereto, will be forfeited without consideration.
(c)Termination of Employment Due to Death or Disability. In the event that, after the Grant Date and prior to completion of the Performance Period, the Participant’s employment with the Company or an Affiliate is terminated due to death or Disability (as defined in the Plan), the Participant shall be entitled to receive the Target Award plus any Dividend Equivalent PSUs determined in accordance with Section 3.

 

3.Performance Determinations.
(a)Following completion of the Performance Period (or, if the Participant’s employment has terminated any time after the Grant Date due to death or Disability, as soon as administratively feasible (in the Committee’s sole discretion) following such termination), the Company will determine the Total Award, calculated as follows:
(i)Except as provided in paragraph (ii) or (iii) below, the number (rounded down to the nearest whole PSU) equal to the product of (A) the Target Award plus any Dividend Equivalent PSUs and (B) the Final Payout Percentage;
(ii)if the Participant’s employment has terminated in the manner described in Section 2(b), the Total Award shall be calculated as the number (rounded down to the nearest whole PSU) equal to the product of (A) the Target Award plus any Dividend Equivalent PSUs, (B) the Final Payout Percentage, and (C) the Prorated Percentage; and
 3 

 

(iii)if the Participant’s employment has terminated in the manner described in Section 2(c), the Total Award shall be calculated as the number (rounded down to the nearest whole PSU) equal to the sum of the Target Award plus any Dividend Equivalent PSUs.
(b)In the event of a Change in Control:
(i)if the Award is not continued, substituted or assumed (in accordance with Section 12 of the Plan) in a manner such that the securities underlying the Award following the Change in Control are traded on a “liquid market” (i.e., the Nasdaq Global Market, the New York Stock Exchange or a comparable international market in which the Participant is able to readily and without administrative complexity sell shares underlying the award, as reasonably determined by the Board) (a “Permitted Assumption”), then the Award shall become fully vested and the Payout Date shall be immediately prior to the Change in Control, with the Performance Goals deemed satisfied at the target level; or
(ii)if the Award is subject to a Permitted Assumption in connection with the Change in Control, then the Performance Goals shall be deemed satisfied at the target level, and the service requirement shall continue in accordance with, and subject to, the terms of the Award.
(c)For purposes of this Agreement:
(i)Final Payout Percentage” is a number, expressed as a percentage, calculated by application of the Performance Formula to achievement of the Performance Goals over the Performance Period, as determined by the Committee.
(ii)Payout Date” shall be:
·[DATE] or as soon as administratively feasible (but not later than 60 days) thereafter if the Participant remains employed with the Company or its Affiliates until the end of the Performance Period, or if the Participant’s employment with the Company and its Affiliates terminates due to retirement after the completion of the first fiscal year of the Performance Period;
·as soon as administratively feasible (but not later than 60 days) after termination of employment if the Participant’s employment with the Company and its Affiliates terminates due to death or Disability at any time; and
·immediately prior to a Change in Control, if the Payout Date is accelerated pursuant to Section 3(b)(i) above.
(iii)Prorated Percentage” is a number, expressed as a percentage, equal to the quotient of (i) the number of completed months from the later of July 1, [YEAR] and the Participant’s first day of employment with the Company, until the date of the Participant’s termination of employment, divided by (ii) [FULL NUMBER OF MONTHS IN THE PERFORMANCE PERIOD].
 4 

 

(d)All determinations with respect to the Award or this Agreement by the Company or Committee, including, without limitation, determinations of performance pursuant to the Performance Goals, the Final Payout Percentage, and timing of settlements, shall be within the Company’s absolute discretion and shall be final, binding and conclusive on the Participant.

Except as may otherwise be defined below, all defined terms contained in this Appendix shall have the same meaning set forth in the Plan and the Agreement.

Each Participant is responsible for ensuring his or her compliance with such regulations, and Participants should discuss this matter with their personal legal and/or tax advisor.

Further, if the Participant is subject to Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction, the Participant acknowledges that the Company and/or the Employer (or former employer, as applicable) may be required to withhold or account for Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction.

 

 

Prior to any relevant taxable or tax withholding event, the Participant agrees, if requested by the Company, to make adequate arrangements satisfactory to the Company and/or the Employer to satisfy all Tax-Related Items.

The Company may withhold or account for Tax-Related Items by considering applicable minimum statutory withholding rates or other applicable withholding rates, including maximum applicable rates.

The Participant agrees to pay to the Company or the Employer any amount of Tax-Related Items that the Company or the Employer may be required to withhold or account for as a result of the Participant’s participation in the Plan that cannot be satisfied by the means previously described.

Spain

Nature of Grant. In accepting the Award, the Participant consents to participate in the Plan and acknowledges that he or she has received a copy of the Plan.

The Participant understands that the Company has unilaterally, gratuitously, and in its sole discretion decided to grant the Award under the Plan to individuals who may be employees of the Company or one of its Affiliates throughout the world.

Further, the Participant understands that the grant of the Award would not be made but for the assumptions and conditions referred to above; thus, he or she acknowledges and freely accept that, should any or all of the assumptions be mistaken or should any of the conditions not be met for any reason, then any grant of or right to the Award shall be null and void.

Further, the vesting of the PSUs is expressly conditioned on the Participant’s continued and active rendering of service, such that if the Participant’s employment terminates for any reason whatsoever, the Units may cease vesting immediately, in whole or in part, effective on the date of the Participant’s termination of employment (unless otherwise specifically provided in Section 1 of the Agreement). This will be the case, for example, even if (i) the Participant is considered to be unfairly dismissed without good cause (i.e., subject to a “despido improcedente”); (ii) the Participant is dismissed for disciplinary or objective reasons or due to a collective dismissal; (iii) the Participant terminates service due to a change of work location, duties or any other employment or contractual condition; (iv) the Participant terminate services due to a unilateral breach of contract by the Company or an Affiliate; or (v) the Participant’s employment terminates for any other reason whatsoever. Consequently, upon termination of the Participant’s employment for any of the above reasons, the Participant may automatically lose any rights to Units that were not vested on the date of the Participant’s termination of employment, as described in the Plan and the Agreement.

The Participant acknowledges that he or she has read and specifically accepts the conditions referred to in Section 1 of the Agreement.

Tax Reporting and Payment Liability. The Participant agrees that the Company or an Affiliate may calculate the Tax-Related Items to be withheld and accounted for by reference to the maximum applicable rates, without prejudice to any right the Participant may have to recover any overpayment from relevant U.K. tax authorities. If payment or withholding of any income tax liability arising in connection with the Participant’s participation in the Plan is not made by the Participant to the Company within ninety (90) days of the event giving rise to such income tax liability or such other period specified in Section 222(1)(c) of the Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003 (the “Due Date”), the Participant understands and agrees that the amount of any uncollected income tax will constitute a loan owed by the Participant to the Company, effective on the Due Date. The Participant understands and agrees that the loan will bear interest at the then-current official rate of Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (“HMRC”), it will be immediately due and repayable by the Participant, and the Company and/or an Affiliate may recover it at any time thereafter by any of the means referred to in the Plan and/or this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Participant understands and agrees that if he or she is a director or an executive officer of the Company, he or she will not be eligible for such a loan to cover the income tax liability. In the event that the Participant is a director or executive officer and the income tax is not collected from or paid by the Participant by the Due Date, the Participant understands that the amount of any uncollected income tax will constitute an additional benefit to the Participant on which additional income tax and National Insurance Contributions will be payable. The Participant understands and agrees that he or she will be responsible for reporting and paying any income tax due on this additional benefit directly to HMRC under the self-assessment regime and for reimbursing the Company or any Affiliate (as appropriate) for the value of any primary and (to the extent legally possible) secondary class 1 national insurance contributions due on this additional benefit which the Company or any Affiliate may recover from the Participant by any of the means referred to in the Plan and/or this Agreement.

Joint Election. Tax-Related Items shall include Primary and to the extent legally possible Secondary Class 1 National Insurance Contributions.

As a necessary condition of participation in the Plan, the Participant agrees to accept any liability for all secondary Class 1 National Insurance Contributions which may be payable by the Company and/or any Affiliate employing or retaining the Participant in connection with the Award and any event giving rise to Tax-Related Items (the “Employer’s NICs”). Without limitation to the foregoing, the Participant agrees to enter into a joint election with the Company (the “Joint Election”), the form of such Joint Election being formally approved by HMRC, and to execute any other consents or elections required to accomplish the transfer of the entirety of Employer’s NICs to the employee. The Participant further agrees to execute such other joint elections as may be required between the Participant and any successor to the Company and/or any Affiliate employing or retaining the Participant. The Participant further agrees that the Company and/or any Affiliate employing or retaining the Participant may collect the Employer’s NICs from him or her by any of the means set forth herein.

If the Participant does not enter into a Joint Election, if approval of the Joint Election has been withdrawn by HMRC or if such Joint Election is jointly revoked by the Participant and the Company or any Affiliate employing or retaining the Participant, as applicable, the Company, in its sole discretion and without any liability to the Company or any Affiliate employing or retaining the Participant, may choose not to issue or deliver any amounts due to the Participant upon vesting of the Award.
