Exhibit 10.1

Annual Incentive Payment Criteria for Executive Officers

(Effective for Awards in 2022 in Respect of 2021)

Annual incentive awards for executive officers, including the CEO, are based on an assessment of Company performance relative to key financial and operational objectives. Each senior executive has an annual incentive target. A performance factor is applied to each of their targets to guide the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) in its determination of their annual incentive awards.

This performance factor is determined using the average of three performance metrics: (i) earnings per share, or EPS, on an AOI basis, measured relative to the Company’s annual financial plan, (ii) the achievement of cost savings, on a run-rate basis, from transformation initiatives relative to the Company’s target, and (iii) ROE relative to the median ROE of a performance peer group.

For the 2021 performance period, the financial metrics, as reported, are adjusted for certain items to more appropriately reflect the operating performance of the Company’s businesses and to take into account certain financial market performance factors relative to the assumptions used in establishing the Company’s performance targets. Items excluded from the reported AOI data include:

 

  1.

AOI on specified classes of non-coupon investments and prepayment fee and call premium income outside of a range of -10% to +10% of these types of earnings that are included in the Company’s annual financial plan.

 

  2.

Actuarial assumption updates.

 

  3.

Merger and acquisition activity including divestitures, integration and one-time costs.

 

  4.

Accounting-related changes not included in the Company’s annual financial plan.

 

  5.

Other items not considered representative of the results of operations for the period or not included in the Company’s annual financial plan.

The primary driver of the annual incentive awards made to the executive officers is the performance factor. The Committee also considers individual performance in determining annual incentive awards. Awards are subject to the Company’s “Clawback” Policy.

The Committee may award an annual incentive payment in recognition of an executive’s contributions during the year in which his or her employment ended.

* * * *

“Adjusted operating income”, or “AOI”, referred to above, differs from, and should not be viewed as a substitute for, income from continuing operations or net income determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, but is the financial measure that the


Company uses to analyze the operations of each segment in managing its businesses. EPS referred to above is determined on the basis of after-tax AOI. ROE referred to above is determined on the basis of after-tax AOI divided by average adjusted book value. Adjusted book value is calculated as total equity (GAAP book value) excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), the cumulative effect of foreign currency exchange rate remeasurements and currency translation adjustments corresponding to realized investment gains and losses.

Prudential Financial, Inc. 2022 Long-Term Incentive Program

This document contains the principal terms and conditions applicable to Awards granted in 2022 to employees under the Prudential Financial, Inc. 2021 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the Plan). Specific provisions applicable to any employees selected to participate in any particular country are set out in Schedule 2.

PART A: GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

1.

Purpose

Prudential’s 2022 Long-Term Incentive Program (the Program) is made available to employees subject to the terms of the Plan and is designed to strengthen the links between leadership, motivation and consistent performance. Employees selected to participate in the Program may be granted Awards of Restricted Stock Units, Performance Shares, or a combination thereof, and will be advised of the Awards made to them in their own personalized compensation statement or a communication from their manager. The Parts of this document (other than this Part A which is relevant to all Awards granted under the Plan) that are relevant to you are the Part or Parts that relate to the type or types of Award that are granted to you under the Plan.

The grant of Awards under the Program is subject to the terms and conditions contained in the Plan document. This document describes the principal terms and conditions of Awards granted to employees under the Plan (the Terms). Schedule 1 contains the definitions used in these Terms. If there is any discrepancy between these Terms and the Plan document, or if there is a discrepancy between any information given by anyone acting on behalf of any member of the Company Group and the Plan document, the Plan document, as interpreted by the Compensation Committee, in its sole discretion, will always govern.

 

2.

Eligibility and grants

Grants of Awards under the Plan are at the sole discretion of Prudential.

A grant of an Award under the Plan on one occasion does not give an employee the right to any further grant at any time in the future.

 

3.

Acceptance of an Award

An employee granted an Award may accept the Award in any manner specified by the Compensation Committee (or the Company Group) and may be deemed to have accepted an Award if the employee has not declined the grant of that Award (in whole or in part) within any period of time specified by the Compensation Committee (or the Company Group) and notified to the employee.

By accepting an Award, a Participant will be responsible for complying with any Applicable Laws relating to:

 

(i)

the acquisition, holding and sale of shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan; and

 

(ii)

the opening and maintaining of a U.S. brokerage account.

The Applicable Laws may change and Participants should seek their own professional legal, financial and taxation advice in relation to their participation in the Plan.

 

4.

Taxes

Prudential or any member of the Company Group, as appropriate, has the right to deduct, report and account for any taxes or other obligations required to be withheld by law in connection with an Award. Prudential (or, as appropriate, any other member of the Company Group) may require a Participant to pay to Prudential (or, if appropriate, any other member of the Company Group) the amount necessary to satisfy any such taxes or other obligations and may defer delivery of shares of Common Stock under the Plan to a Participant until such payment is satisfied. On the Vesting of an Award (as applicable), Prudential, or, if appropriate, any other member of the Company Group, will have the right to withhold, either through payroll, through the withholding of sufficient shares of Common Stock or otherwise, in order to satisfy any applicable withholding requirements on the Vesting of an Award. Participants are responsible for ensuring that their own tax affairs in connection with the Plan are in order.

 

 

Terms and Conditions of the 2022 Long-Term Incentive Program 1


5.

Value of Awards

Prudential makes no representation as to the future value of any Award under the Plan or whether any profit will be realized with respect to any Award. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future performance. Investments may fall as well as rise in value. By accepting the grant of an Award, a Participant agrees that Prudential and the other members of the Company Group are not responsible for foreign exchange fluctuations between the Participant’s local currency and the U.S. dollar and are not liable for any decrease in the value of shares of Common Stock. Changes in exchange rates may have an adverse effect on the value, price or income of the securities.

 

6.

Covenant not to solicit; Notice Period requirement; other terms and restrictions

 

(a)

Restrictions during Employment: By accepting the grant of an Award, a Participant agrees that during Employment, the Participant will not, other than on behalf of the Company Group or as may otherwise be required in connection with the performance of the Participant’s duties on behalf of the Company Group, solicit or induce, either directly or indirectly, or take any action to assist any entity, either directly or indirectly, in soliciting or inducing any employee of the Company Group (other than the Participant’s administrative assistant) to leave Employment (Induce Departures).

 

(b)

Post-Employment restrictive covenants, acknowledgements and representations: By accepting the grant of an Award, a Participant agrees that following the termination of the Participant’s Employment:

 

  (i)

Until the original latest Vesting date of the Award or, if ending later, for a period of one year after the termination of the Participant’s Employment for any reason, the Participant will not Induce Departures or hire or employ, or assist in the hire or employment, either directly or indirectly, of any employee of the Company Group (other than the Participant’s administrative assistant) or any former employee of the Company Group within 60 days of that former employee’s cessation of Employment with the Company Group;

  (ii)

If the Participant voluntarily resigns in circumstances qualifying for Approved Retirement or Approved Termination, the Participant will not compete with the Company Group in any business in which the Company Group is engaged on the last date of the Participant’s Employment that operates in any geographic area in which the Company Group operates as of the Participant’s last date of Employment, for a period of one year following the Participant’s termination of Employment or until the original latest Vesting date of the Award, whichever is the shorter period; and

 

  (iii)

The Participant could earn a living while fully complying with all of the provisions, restrictions and covenants contained in these Terms. The Participant acknowledges that Prudential provides a wide range of insurance, investment management and other financial products and services to customers throughout the world and that the restrictions contained in these Terms are reasonable and necessary to protect Prudential’s legitimate interests in its confidential information, trade secrets, customer relationships, and investment in the training and development of its employees.

 

(c)

Restrictions separable and divisible: By accepting the grant of an Award, a Participant acknowledges and accepts the restrictions, covenants and requirements imposed by Sections 6(a), (b), (e) and (f) of this Part A and that each restriction, covenant or requirement will be construed as separate and divisible from every other restriction, covenant or requirement. If any provision contained in the Plan or these Terms is for any reason held invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, that invalidity, illegality or unenforceability will not affect any other provision of the Plan or these Terms, and the Plan or these Terms will be construed as if the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision had not been included in these Terms. It is the intention of the parties that if any of the restrictions, requirements or covenants contained in these Terms is held to cover a geographic area or to be for a length of time which is not permitted by Applicable Laws, or in any way construed

 

 

Terms and Conditions of the 2022 Long-Term Incentive Program 2


  to be too broad or to any extent invalid, that provision will not be null, void and of no effect, but to the extent the provision would be valid or enforceable under Applicable Laws, a court of competent jurisdiction will construe and interpret or reform the Terms to provide for a restriction, requirement or covenant having the maximum enforceable geographic area, time period and other provisions (not greater than those contained in these Terms) as will be valid and enforceable under Applicable Laws. Except as otherwise provided in Section 6(e) below, Prudential, in its sole discretion, may waive any restriction or any breach in circumstances that it determines do not adversely affect its interests, but only in writing signed by its Authorized Officer. No waiver of a breach of a restriction, requirement or covenant will be deemed a waiver of any other breach.

 

(d)

Remedies: By accepting the grant of an Award, a Participant agrees that the restrictions in Sections 6(a) and (b) of this Part A are fair, reasonable and necessary, and are reasonably required for the protection of Prudential and any other member of the Company Group. The Participant agrees and acknowledges that the amount of damages that would derive from the breach of any restriction is not readily ascertainable and that the restrictions are a significant portion of the consideration that the Participant provides to Prudential in consideration of the grant of an Award. Accordingly, if a Participant fails to execute and submit or revokes a Release or breaches any of the restrictive covenants set out in Sections 6(a) and (b) of this Part A, all of the Participant’s outstanding Awards will be cancelled immediately on the date of that failure, as determined in the sole discretion of an Authorized Officer. If a Participant breaches any of the restrictive covenants set out in Sections 6(a) and (b) of this Part A, then, in addition to any equitable relief available to Prudential as outlined below, the Participant will transfer to Prudential cash or Common Stock (rounded to the nearest whole share), as applicable, equal in value (using the current Market Value of Common Stock on the date the letter of notification of the breach is dated) to the profit realized by the Participant under the Plan occurring (I) in the case of any breach while the Participant is an employee of the Company Group, within 12 months before

  the date of the breach or at any time after the date of the breach; or (II) in the case of a breach after the termination of the Participant’s Employment, within six (6) months before the date on which the Participant’s Employment terminated or at any time after the date of such termination of Employment. The term “profit” referred to in the preceding sentence will be equal to the sums (determined separately for each grant payable within the applicable period established pursuant to such sentence) of (i) the Market Value of a share of Common Stock on the date of payment times (ii) the number of shares of Common Stock acquired or acquirable. The Participant will pay any amount due (in the form of Common Stock or cash, as applicable) to Prudential within five (5) business days of the date Prudential notifies the Participant that a breach of the provisions of this Section 6 has occurred. If payment is not made within that period, any subsequent payment will be made with interest at a rate equal to the prime rate as reported in The Wall Street Journal (Eastern Edition) on the date on which notice of the breach is sent to the Participant by Prudential, plus two (2) percent. Interest payments will be made in cash. A Participant also acknowledges that the damages to Prudential for any breach of Sections 6(a) or (b) of this Part A would be irreparable. Therefore, in addition to monetary damages and/or reasonable attorney’s fees, Prudential will have the right to seek injunctive and/or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction to enforce the restriction. Further, a Participant consents to the issue of a temporary restraining order to maintain the status quo pending the outcome of any proceeding.

 

(e)

Notice Period requirement: The Company Group operates in a highly competitive industry, invests heavily in its relationships with its employees and a broad range of clients and insists that its business and the insurance products and financial services that it provides to its clients not be disrupted in any manner when a Participant leaves its employ. A Participant acknowledges and agrees that it is reasonable and necessary to protect the Company Group’s interests and to provide a smooth transition if the Participant chooses to terminate Employment. Accordingly, if a

 

 

Terms and Conditions of the 2022 Long-Term Incentive Program 3


  Participant is employed within the Company Group in the grade levels or equivalent positions to such grade levels (e.g., Investment Professionals) at any time, as determined by the Company Group and specified in Schedule 3, by accepting the grant of an Award, the Participant agrees to deliver advance written notice of the resignation of his or her Employment to his or her manager no later than the time period specified in Schedule 3 (the Notice Period). Such written notice will be in a form satisfactory to the applicable Company Group Managers.

If a Participant is party to a separate individual agreement or arrangement with a member of the Company Group that provides for a notice period other than that provided for under Schedule 3, the longest notice period will apply, unless the Company Group Managers determine otherwise.

Each Participant will continue to be paid the Participant’s current base salary throughout the Notice Period. A Participant may not be eligible for certain benefits if the Participant is placed on paid leave during the Notice Period. If the Participant provides notice of the Participant’s resignation and the Notice Period applicable to the Participant includes the date on which Awards may be granted, vested or settled, as applicable, or payments of annual cash bonuses or other incentive compensation may be made, (I) the Participant may be eligible for a grant of a new Award at Prudential’s sole discretion and (II) the Participant will only receive payment of, or vest in, as applicable, any previously granted Award, annual cash bonus or other incentive compensation if the Participant remains employed by a member of the Company Group on the scheduled payment or vesting date, as applicable, during the Notice Period, unless the Terms expressly entitle the Participant to more favorable treatment as may be determined by the Company Group Managers.

 

  (i)

A Participant’s Responsibilities During the Notice Period: During the Notice Period, the Participant will remain an employee of the applicable member of the Company Group and will not commence employment with, or provide services to or for, any employer other than a member of the Company Group, or become self-employed. As an employee

  within the Company Group, during the Notice Period, a Participant has a continuing duty of loyalty to the Company Group throughout the Notice Period and will remain bound by the provisions of Prudential’s Corporate Asset Protection Agreement, Confidentiality of Client Information/Privacy Policies, and all other Company Group policies, including, but not limited to, those setting out restrictions, covenants and requirements regarding confidential and proprietary information, non-solicitation of employees and customers, and no-hire obligations, as well as any other applicable agreements.

It is within the Company Group Managers’ sole discretion to determine whether a Participant will perform the Participant’s duties or otherwise provide services during the Notice Period. At any time during the Notice Period, the Company Group Managers may remove a Participant from any assigned duties, assign other duties to the Participant, require the Participant to refrain from performing any job duties or from reporting to work, and may prohibit the Participant from directly or indirectly contacting its customers, suppliers or employees until the Participant’s Employment ends. Regardless of the extent to which the Company Group Managers direct a Participant to perform the Participant’s duties or report to work during the Notice Period, the Participant agrees to be available as reasonably necessary and continue to work cooperatively and professionally with the Company Group to ensure an effective transition of the Participant’s responsibilities. The Company Group Managers may, in their sole discretion, waive all or any part of a Participant’s Notice Period and set an earlier Employment separation date. If the Company Group Managers waive a Participant’s Notice Period, in its entirety, or set an earlier Employment separation date, (I) the Participant will not receive payment of base salary beyond the separation date and (II) as described above, the Participant will not

 

 

Terms and Conditions of the 2022 Long-Term Incentive Program 4


receive payment of, or vest in, as applicable, any previously granted Award, annual cash bonus or other incentive compensation if the earlier separation date occurs prior to the scheduled payment or vesting date, as applicable.

 

  (ii)

Consequences of Breach/Remedies: The failure of a Participant to comply with this Section 6(e) and give the requisite notice would constitute a breach of this Section 6(e). As a result, by accepting the grant of an Award, a Participant agrees that the Company Group will have the right to cancel all Awards outstanding as of the date of the breach and to enforce the terms and conditions of this Section 6(e) by seeking an injunction from any court of competent jurisdiction, in addition to pursuing any other remedies that it may have in law or equity. Further, except as otherwise provided in these Terms or any Schedules hereto, a Participant consents to the issuance of a temporary restraining order to maintain the status quo pending the outcome of any proceeding.

 

  (iii)

Employment-at-Will: Nothing contained in this Section 6(e) is intended to constitute or create a contract of Employment nor will it constitute or create the right to remain in the employ of the Company Group for any particular period of time. At all times a U.S. Participant remains an employee-at-will, which means that either the Participant or the Company Group may terminate the Employment relationship at any time, with or without cause or notice, subject to the Notice Period requirement in this Section 6(e).

 

(f)

Clawback; Recoupment; Forfeiture: Notwithstanding any other provisions in the Plan, any award granted under the Plan, including those granted pursuant to, or prior to the date of this document, will be subject to the terms of any clawback, recoupment or forfeiture policy adopted by Prudential as in effect from time to time, as well as any clawback, recoupment or forfeiture provisions required by law, government regulation, or stock exchange listing requirement and applicable to the Company Group.

7.

Compliance with Applicable Laws

Awards granted under the Plan and Prudential’s obligation to deliver shares of Common Stock or make payment of cash, as applicable, under these Terms will be subject in all respects to (a) all Applicable Laws, and (b) any registration, qualification, approvals or other requirements imposed by any government or regulatory agency or body which the Compensation Committee determines to be necessary or applicable. Shares of Common Stock or cash, as applicable, may not be delivered or paid to a Participant if their receipt would be contrary to any Applicable Laws or the rules of any applicable stock exchange.

 

8.

Investment representation

If at the time of delivery of any shares of Common Stock under the Plan, the Common Stock is not registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act), or there is no current prospectus in effect under the Securities Act with respect to the Common Stock, a Participant will, if requested by the Compensation Committee, execute, before the delivery of any shares of Common Stock, an agreement (in the form the Compensation Committee specifies) in which the Participant represents and warrants that the Participant is acquiring the shares for the Participant’s own account, for investment only and not with a view to the resale or distribution of the shares, and agrees that any subsequent offer for sale or distribution of any kind of such shares will be made only pursuant to either (a) a registration statement on an appropriate form under the Securities Act, which registration statement has become effective and is current with regard to the shares being offered or sold; or (b) a specific exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, but in claiming that exemption, the Participant will, before any offer for sale of the shares, obtain a prior favorable written opinion, in form and substance satisfactory to the Compensation Committee, from counsel for or approved by the Compensation Committee, as to the applicability of the exemption.

 

9.

Governing law

A Participant acknowledges that Prudential is organized under the laws of the State of New Jersey and maintains its headquarters in Newark, New Jersey. The Participant further acknowledges that Prudential has an interest in ensuring the uniform interpretation and application of these

 

 

Terms and Conditions of the 2022 Long-Term Incentive Program 5


Terms to all Participants. Accordingly, Prudential and the Participant agree that the Plan and these Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of New Jersey, without giving effect to its conflict of law provisions.

 

10.

Electronic delivery and acceptance

By accepting an Award under the Plan, a Participant agrees, to the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Laws, in lieu of receiving documents in paper format, to accept electronic delivery of any documents that any member of the Company Group may be required to deliver in connection with the Plan. Electronic delivery of a document may be via e-mail or by reference to a location on a member of the Company Group’s intranet site or a designated third-party vendor’s internet site.

 

11.

No rights as a shareholder

A Participant does not have any rights as a shareholder in Prudential by virtue of the grant of an Award under the Plan, but only with respect to shares of Common Stock, if any, delivered to the Participant in accordance with the Plan and these Terms.

 

12.

Applicable Laws and Section 409A

Notwithstanding any provision of the Plan to the contrary, no acceleration or delay of the time or schedule of any delivery of shares of Common Stock or other payment related to an Award will be permitted to the extent necessary to comply with Section 409A. The Compensation Committee may amend, modify, adjust or supplement any provision of the Plan without a Participant’s consent if the Compensation Committee determines that the amendment, modification, adjustment or supplementation is required or advisable for an Award or Prudential to comply with, or not violate, any Applicable Laws, regulation or rule, including, without limitation, Section 409A.

 

13.

Other terms

Participation in the Plan does not entitle an employee of the Company Group to any benefit other than that granted under the Plan. Any benefits granted under the Plan will not be deemed to be compensation under any pension plan or other retirement plan, welfare plan or any compensation plan or program maintained by any member of the Company Group, and will not be considered as part of compensation for the purposes of calculating pension, profit-sharing, bonuses, service awards, or in the event of severance, redundancy or resignation.

No Awards may be sold, transferred, pledged, assigned or otherwise alienated or hypothecated, other than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution.

Prudential may modify, amend, suspend or terminate the Plan or any and all of the policies, programs and terms of the Plan in whole or in part, at any time, without notice to or the consent of Participants. Notwithstanding anything else contained in this document to the contrary, any action taken under the Plan or these Terms by the Compensation Committee, Prudential, the Company Group or the Company Group Managers will be taken at the sole discretion of the Compensation Committee, Prudential, the Company Group or the Company Group Managers, as applicable.

If shares of Common Stock are, or are to be, delivered, or if cash is paid, or is to be paid, in a manner not specifically authorized by the Plan (i.e., in Error), Prudential will be entitled to correct the Error, including reversing the transaction and recouping any shares of Common Stock, cash or gain that might be delivered or paid as a result of the Error.

The English language version of any documents provided in connection with the Plan will prevail in the case of any ambiguities or divergences as a result of the translation of the document into any other language.

Participation in the Plan is not intended to constitute or create a contract of Employment nor does it constitute or create the right to remain associated with or in the employ of any member of the Company Group. Participation in the Plan does not affect in any way a member of the Company Group’s right to terminate an employee’s Employment at any time, with or without cause, and does not form part of an employee’s Employment contract, if any.

As a term of participation in the Plan, each Participant will indemnify the Company Group for any loss (including but not limited to any costs, damages, expenses, claims, penalties or demands) suffered by any member of the Company Group, and no member of the Company Group will be liable to such Participant (or any beneficiaries thereto) for any such loss suffered by the Participant (or any beneficiaries), as a result of any action taken by the Participant or any failure by the Participant to take any action.

 

 

Terms and Conditions of the 2022 Long-Term Incentive Program 6


PART B: TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLICABLE TO RESTRICTED STOCK UNITS UNDER THE LONG-TERM INCENTIVE PROGRAM

 

1.

Restricted Period

The restricted period (the Restricted Period) will begin on the Grant Date and will end (i.e., vest) with respect to one-third of the Restricted Stock Units on the last day of each month in which the first three anniversaries of the Grant Date occur.

 

2.

Settlement of Restricted Stock Units

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan and subject to the Participant’s continued Employment through the applicable RSU Payment Date, a Participant will receive as soon as administratively practicable after each applicable RSU Payment Date (but not later than the end of the calendar year in which the RSU Payment Date occurs) the number of shares of Common Stock equal to the number of Restricted Stock Units that vested (i.e., as to which the Restricted Period has ended) on the applicable RSU Payment Date in accordance with these Terms, less any taxes or other deductions required by Applicable Laws.

 

3.

Vesting or forfeiture of Restricted Stock Units following termination of Employment in specific circumstances

A Participant’s outstanding Restricted Stock Units as to which the Restricted Period has not ended will automatically be forfeited and cancelled on the termination of the Participant’s Employment and no shares of Common Stock will thereafter be issued with respect to the Restricted Stock Units, except in the specific circumstances set out in the table on page 8.

4.

Section 409A

Notwithstanding any other provisions of the Plan to the contrary, to the extent necessary to comply with the requirements of Section 409A with respect to any individual who is a “specified employee” within the meaning of Section 409A, delivery of shares of Common Stock on account of termination of the Participant’s Employment with any member of the Company Group may not be made before the date that is six (6) months after the date of such termination of Employment (or, if earlier, the date of the Participant’s death). In addition, to the extent necessary to comply with the requirements of Section 409A, if an Award of Restricted Stock Units is treated as deferred compensation subject to Section 409A, no distribution will be made (although vesting will accelerate to the extent otherwise provided above) in respect of such Award upon the occurrence of a Change of Control unless such event qualifies as a change in the ownership of a corporation, change in the effective control of a corporation or a change in the ownership of a substantial portion of the assets of a corporation within the meaning of Section 409A.

 

5.

Dividend Equivalents

A Participant granted Restricted Stock Units will be eligible to receive Dividend Equivalents on the outstanding Restricted Stock Units based on any regular cash dividends declared on shares of Common Stock from the Grant Date until each applicable RSU Payment Date (or until the date of settlement or forfeiture, if sooner). Any Dividend Equivalents will be paid in cash as soon as administratively practicable (but not more than 74 days) after the related cash dividends are paid to Common Stock holders, unless determined otherwise by the Compensation Committee.

Restricted Stock Units

Type of Termination

of Employment

 

Vesting Status(1)

Voluntary Resignation   All outstanding unvested Restricted Stock Units are immediately forfeited.
Approved Retirement  

If the Participant executes and submits a Release by the date specified by Prudential (and does not later revoke the Release), the Participant will receive shares of Common Stock in respect of his or her outstanding Restricted Stock Units at the same time and in the same amount that would have been distributable had the Participant remained in Employment. If the Participant does not execute a Release, all Restricted Stock Units will be forfeited on the last date of Employment.

 

This does not apply to Participants in Canada, the United Kingdom or the European Union who should refer to Schedule 2 for more information.

Approved Termination  

If the Participant executes and submits a Release by the date specified by Prudential (and does not later revoke the Release), the Participant will receive shares of Common Stock in respect of his or her outstanding Restricted Stock Units at the same time and in the same amount that would have been distributable had the Participant remained in Employment. If the Participant does not execute a Release, all Restricted Stock Units will be forfeited on the last date of Employment.

 

This only applies to Participants in the United Kingdom, the European Union and Canada.

Termination for Cause  

All outstanding Restricted Stock Units are immediately forfeited.

 

The Compensation Committee may require the Participant to repay any payment, profit, gain or other benefit (including, but not limited to, any dividends or Dividend Equivalents) in respect of the Restricted Stock Units or any prior restricted stock units or Awards received within a period of 12 months before the Participant’s termination of Employment for Cause. If a Participant’s Employment is terminated by any member of the Company Group for Cause, the provisions in these Terms relating to termination for Cause will apply notwithstanding any assertion (by the Participant or otherwise) that the Participant’s Employment was terminated for any other reason.

Death (while an active employee)   All outstanding Restricted Stock Units become fully vested and the Participant’s estate will receive shares of Common Stock as soon as administratively practicable (but not later than 74 days) thereafter.
Disability (if not eligible for Approved Retirement or Approved Termination)   If the Participant executes and submits a Release by the date specified by Prudential (and does not later revoke the Release), all outstanding Restricted Stock Units will become fully vested and the Participant will receive shares of Common Stock as soon as administratively practicable (but not later than 74 days) after the date of termination of employment.
Involuntary Termination for any other reason (if not eligible for Approved Retirement or Approved Termination) or Termination for any reason not described above in this table   If a Participant executes and submits a Release by the date specified by Prudential (and does not later revoke the Release), a pro-rated(2) number of outstanding Restricted Stock Units will vest and the Participant will receive shares of Common Stock as soon as administratively practicable thereafter (but not later than 74 days after the date of the termination of Employment). The remainder of the Restricted Stock Units will be forfeited. If the Participant does not execute a Release, all Restricted Stock Units as to which the applicable RSU Payment Date has not occurred will be forfeited on the last date of Employment.
Change of Control of Prudential   All Restricted Stock Units will become vested and the Participant will normally receive shares of Common Stock; unless the entity that acquires control honors, assumes, or substitutes new rights for the Restricted Stock Units with substantially equivalent or better rights, terms, conditions and values as determined by the Compensation Committee. Alternatively, the Compensation Committee may, at its sole discretion, provide for payment in cash based on the Change of Control price.

Terms and Conditions of the 2022 Long-Term Incentive Program 8


PART C: TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLICABLE TO PERFORMANCE SHARES UNDER THE LONG-TERM PERFORMANCE PROGRAM, A SUB-PROGRAM OF THE LONG-TERM INCENTIVE PROGRAM

 

1.

Performance Cycle

The performance period with respect to Performance Shares will begin on January 1, 2022 and will end on December 31, 2024 (the Performance Cycle).

 

2.

Settlement of Performance Shares

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan and following approval by the Compensation Committee, any shares of Common Stock to which a Participant is entitled in respect of Performance Shares will be delivered or paid to such Participant as soon as administratively practicable after the PS Payment Date (but not later than the end of the calendar year in which the PS Payment Date occurs), less any taxes or other deductions required by Applicable Laws.

 

3.

Performance Goals

A Participant’s Performance Shares are conditioned on achievement of goals relating to the growth in book value per share (BVPS Growth) and ROE as compared to our peer companies (Relative ROE), each with a 50% weighting and as specified by the Compensation Committee with respect to the Performance Cycle.

Book value per share is defined as the per-share amount of the equity attributed to Prudential Financial, Inc., excluding significant mergers and acquisitions transactions, accounting and regulatory changes, total accumulated other comprehensive income and the non-economic effects of foreign currency exchange rate remeasurements of non-yen liabilities and assets, as determined based on Prudential’s financial statements for the relevant period and as adjusted by Prudential as it deems appropriate or desirable. BVPS Growth for each Performance Cycle is defined as the average of the annual growth rates in book value per share for each year in the Performance Cycle.

ROE is defined, with respect to Prudential and its peer companies, as “operating return on average equity.” Relative ROE, with respect to Prudential and its peer companies, is defined as

the average annual ROE figure derived from Prudential’s Quarterly Financial Supplement (QFS) or other public disclosures of a peer company for each of the three years of the Performance Cycle, as applicable. ROE for Prudential and each peer company may be adjusted and/or normalized to exclude the non-economic effects of foreign currency exchange re-measurements of non-yen liabilities and assets and for certain other items as determined by Prudential.

The number of shares of Common Stock that a Participant may become eligible to receive will be equal to the applicable target number of Performance Shares awarded, adjusted by the applicable Total Earned Payout Factor (which is determined based on the achievement of the BVPS Growth and Relative ROE goals over the Performance Cycle). Any resulting number of shares of Common Stock will be rounded to the nearest whole number. The aggregate number of shares of Common Stock distributable to the Participant will be the “Final Payout Amount,” which will be made on the PS Payment Date (shortly following the end of the Performance Cycle) subject to the terms, conditions and restrictions set out in these Terms and in the Plan, including the requirement that the Participant remain actively employed with the Company Group as of the PS Payment Date.

The Final Payout Amount will be based on the product of (a) the target number of Performance Shares awarded, multiplied by (b) the Total Earned Payout Factor

BVPS Growth performance will be based on the average of annual growth rates in book value per share for each of 2022, 2023 and 2024. The BVPS

 

 

Terms and Conditions of the 2022 Long-Term Incentive Program 9


Growth goals and the respective BVPS Earned Payout Factors are as follows:

   0.00

4.5%

   0.50

8%

   1.00

11.50% or more

   1.50

The Relative ROE performance will be determined based on Prudential’s ROE as compared to median performance of the North American Life Insurance/Financial Companies selected by the Compensation Committee as peers. The Relative ROE performance will be based on the trailing four quarters ended September 30 of the applicable years. The Relative ROE goals and the respective ROE Earned Payout Factors are as follows:

 

Relative ROE

Achieved Relative

   1.00

   1.25

+4% or more

   1.50

If Prudential’s BVPS Growth or Relative ROE performance falls between any two discrete points on their respective scale, the corresponding BVPS Earned Payout Factor or ROE Earned Payout Factor will be interpolated on a linear basis. The Total Earned Payout Factor will be the average (mean) of the BVPS Earned Payout Factor and the ROE Earned Payout Factor (i.e., the sum of the BVPS Earned Payout Factor and the ROE Earned Payout Factor, divided by two (2)).

For Performance Shares granted in 2022, the group of peer companies to be used for the Relative ROE performance measures is: (1) AFLAC, Incorporated, (2) American Equity Life, (3) AXA Equitable, (4) Brighthouse Financial, (5) CNO Financial, (6) Globe Life, (7) Lincoln National, (8) MetLife, Inc., (9) Principal Financial Group, (10) Reinsurance Group of America, (11) Unum Group, and (12) Voya Financial. The group may be changed by the Compensation Committee

as it determines, in its sole discretion, to account for any merger, consolidation, recapitalization or reorganization, share exchange, division, sale, plan of complete liquidation or dissolution, other disposition of all or substantially all assets, or similar event occurring at or with any of the peer companies.

 

4.

Vesting or forfeiture of Performance Shares following termination of Employment in specific circumstances

A Participant’s outstanding Performance Shares will automatically be forfeited and cancelled on the termination of the Participant’s Employment and no shares of Common Stock and/or no amount of cash will thereafter be issued or paid with respect to the Performance Shares, except in the specific circumstances set out in the table on page 12.

 

5.

Section 409A

Notwithstanding any other provisions of the Plan to the contrary, to the extent necessary to comply with the requirements of Section 409A with respect to any individual who is a “specified employee” within the meaning of Section 409A, on termination of the Participant’s Employment with any member of the Company Group, delivery of shares of Common Stock may not be made before the date that is six (6) months after the date of such termination of Employment (or, if earlier, the date of the Participant’s death). In addition, to the extent necessary to comply with the requirements of Section 409A, if an Award of Performance Shares is treated as deferred compensation subject to Section 409A, no distribution will be made (although vesting will accelerate to the extent otherwise provided above) in respect of such Award upon the occurrence of a Change of Control unless such event qualifies as a change in the ownership of a corporation, change in the effective control of a corporation or a change in the ownership of a substantial portion of the assets of a corporation within the meaning of Section 409A.

 

6.

Dividend Equivalents

A Participant granted Performance Shares will be eligible to receive Dividend Equivalents on the lesser of (a) the Final Payout Amount; or (b) the respective target amount of Performance Shares, based on any regular cash dividends declared on Common Stock from the Grant Date until the PS Payment Date (or until the date of settlement, if

sooner). Any Dividend Equivalents will be paid in cash as soon as administratively practicable after shares of Common Stock are delivered in respect of the corresponding Performance Shares. There will be no reinvestment option or earned interest credits on any Dividend Equivalents.

individual, unilaterally by any member of the Company Group and whether with or without advance notice to the Participant. For the avoidance of doubt, no period of notice or pay in lieu of notice that is given or that ought to have been given under applicable law in respect of such termination of employment that follows or is in respect of a period after the Participant who is resident in Canada’s last day of actual and active Employment shall be considered as extending the Participant’s period of Employment for the purposes of determining his or her entitlement under the Plan, except as may be required by a Participant’s minimum statutory entitlements pursuant to applicable employment standards legislation.

A Participant whose Employment is governed by Canadian law shall have no entitlement to damages or other compensation arising from or relating to not receiving or nor being able to settle any Award which would have Vested or accrued to the Participant after the date of cessation of actual and active Employment or if working notice of termination has been given. However, nothing herein is intended to limit any statutory entitlements or termination and such statutory entitlements shall, if required, apply despite this language to the contrary.

Section 6(b)(i) of these Terms will apply to Participants who reside in Canada in accordance with the following:

(ii)    the restriction that the Participant will not “hire or employ, or assist in the hire or employment” shall not apply; and

(iii)    the placement by the Participant of advertising in a newspaper or other publication of general circulation, or the engagement of a personnel search agency by the Participant generally (i.e. not specifically in respect of the Company Group), that results in an employee or other individual engaged by the Company Group leaving the employment of or engagement with the Company Group shall not be considered a violation of Section 6(b)(i).

The remedies set out in Section 6(d) shall apply to Participants who reside in Canada to the full extent permitted by Applicable Laws.

The provisions in these Terms relating to the impact of the termination of a Participant’s Employment due to retirement will not apply to Participants in Canada.

Where Approved Termination applies, the last date of Employment will be deemed to include only the minimum applicable period of notice of termination (if any) that any member of the Company Group is required to provide to a Participant in Canada pursuant to the minimum requirements of applicable employment standards legislation.

The definition of “Cause” shall have the meaning as defined in any written Employment agreement applicable to the Participant whose Employment is governed by Canadian law and if not otherwise defined, then the definition of Cause contained in this Plan shall govern and shall also include: any other act or omission or series of acts or omissions by the Participant that would, pursuant to applicable employment standards legislation or at common law, permit the Company Group to, without notice or payment in lieu of notice, terminate employment.

Section 6 and the final paragraph of Section 13 of Part A will not apply to participants in the United Kingdom.

An individual will not be held criminally or civilly liable under any Federal or State trade secret law for the disclosure of a trade secret that is made in a complaint or other document filed in a lawsuit or other proceeding, if such filing is made under seal.

consent to, the issuance of an injunction or a temporary restraining order under Section 6(e). Notwithstanding the foregoing, during the time period a Participant works outside of California, Sections 6(b) and (e) of these Terms will apply.

The immediately preceding paragraph will also apply to the Terms and Conditions applicable to all prior Awards granted under the Plan and provisions in those Terms and Conditions comparable to Section 6(b) to the extent that such provision prohibits post-termination hiring of an employee of the Company Group or post-Employment competition with the Company Group

District of Columbia Employees: The restrictive covenant set out in Section 6(b)(ii) of Part A will not apply to a Participant who would otherwise be subject to Section 6(b)(ii) of Part A and who is an “employee” within the meaning of the District of Columbia’s Ban on Non-Compete Agreements Amendment Act of 2020 (each a “DC Participant”).
