Award Date:  March 10, 2019
 
Service Period: March 10, 2019 to March 10, 2022
 
Performance Period:  January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2021
 
Total Shareholder Return (“TSR”) Measurement Period:  March 10, 2019 to February 28, 2022
 
Performance Goals:  The Performance Goals are included in Exhibit A attached hereto.
 
Vesting:  The Performance Share Units will vest on March 10, 2022, subject to the performance conditions described in Section 4 and Exhibit A hereto, and subject to earlier vesting at the times indicated in Sections 6 (including in connection with certain terminations following a Change in Control) and 8.
 
Settlement:  Vested Performance Share Units will be settled by delivery of one share of the Company’s Common Stock, $0.10 par value per share (“Shares”), for each Performance Share Unit being settled.  Settlement shall occur at the time specified in Sections 4 and 6 hereof, as applicable.

PERFORMANCE SHARE UNITS AWARD
The Compensation and Management Development Committee of the Board of Directors of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (the “Committee”) has approved a grant to you of an award of Performance Share Units as designated herein subject to the terms, conditions and restrictions set forth in this Agreement.  The target number of Performance Share Units and the kind of shares deliverable in settlement, the calculation of total revenues (net of foreign exchange) and non-GAAP operating margin, and other terms and conditions of the Performance Share Units are subject to adjustment in accordance with Section 11 hereof and Plan Section 11(c).

2.
CONSIDERATION
As consideration for grant of this award, you shall remain in the employ of the Company and/or its subsidiaries or affiliates for the entire Service Period or such lesser period as the Committee shall determine in its sole discretion, and no Performance Share Units shall be payable until after the completion of such Service Period or lesser period of employment by you (except as set forth in Sections 6 and 8 hereof, as applicable). In addition, you shall remain in compliance with the covenants set forth in Section 10 hereof for the applicable periods specified therein.
3.
PERFORMANCE GOALS
The Performance Goals are specified on Exhibit A hereto.
4.
DETERMINATION OF PERFORMANCE SHARE UNITS VESTED; FORFEITURES; SETTLEMENT
Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, Performance Share Units shall be subject to the restrictions and conditions set forth herein during the period from the Award Date until the date such Performance Share Unit has become vested and non-forfeitable (the Restricted Period”).  Between February 28, 2022 and March 10, 2022, the Committee shall determine and certify the Company’s actual performance in relation to the established Performance Goals for the Performance Period and the TSR Measurement Period.  The Committee shall certify these results in writing in accordance with Plan Section 7(c).  Between February 28, 2022 and March 10, 2022, the Committee shall determine and certify the extent to which Performance Share Units are deemed vested on the basis of the foregoing, provided, however, that, the Committee may exercise its discretion (reserved under Plan Section 7(a)) to increase or reduce the amount of Performance Share Units deemed eligible for vesting in its assessment of performance in relation to Performance Goals, or in light of other considerations the Committee deems relevant.  Any Performance Share Units that are not, based on the Committee’s determination, deemed eligible for vesting by performance during the Performance Period and the TSR Measurement Period (or deemed to be vested in connection with a termination of employment under Sections 6 and 8 below), including, unless otherwise expressly determined by the Committee, Performance Share Units that had been potentially eligible for vesting by performance in excess of the actual performance levels achieved, shall be canceled and forfeited.
 
Vesting of the Performance Share Units is conditioned upon you remaining employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company during the entire Service Period, except as set forth in Sections 6 and 8 of this Agreement.  If, before the end of the Service Period, you are no longer an employee of the Company, its subsidiaries or an affiliate of the Company, any Performance Share Units that have not been vested and which cannot thereafter be vested under Sections 6 or 8 shall be canceled and forfeited.
 
In certain termination events as specified in Sections 6 and 8 and in connection with a long-term Disability (as defined in Section 7), you will be entitled to vesting of a prorated portion of the Performance Share Units awarded. The formula for determining the prorated portion to which you are entitled can be found in the pro rata summaries for equity awards on the Company’s Stock Plan Administrator’s website.
 
The number of Performance Share Units vested shall be rounded to the nearest whole Performance Share Unit, unless otherwise determined by the Company officers responsible for day-to-day administration of the Plan.
 
Performance Share Units that vest after the end of the Service Period shall be settled promptly, and in any event within 60 days of the vesting date, by delivery of one Share for each Performance Share Unit being settled.  Performance Share Units that become vested under Sections 6(a), 6(b), 6(c), 6(d) or 8 shall be settled at the times specified therein; provided, however, that settlement of Performance Share Units under Sections 6(a), (b), (c) or (d) shall be subject to the applicable provisions of Plan Section 11(k).  (Note:  Plan Section 11(k) could apply if settlement is triggered by a Change in Control or a termination following a Change in Control).  Until Shares are delivered to you in settlement of Performance Share Units, you shall have none of the rights of a stockholder of the Company with respect to the Shares issuable in settlement of the Performance Share Units, including the right to vote the shares and receive distributions.

5.
NONTRANSFERABILITY OF PERFORMANCE SHARE UNITS
 
During the Restricted Period and any further period prior to settlement of your Performance Share Units, you may not sell, transfer, pledge or assign any of the Performance Share Units or your rights relating thereto.  If you attempt to assign your rights under this Agreement in violation of the provisions herein, the Company’s obligation to settle Performance Share Units or otherwise make payments shall terminate.
 
6.
RETIREMENT AND OTHER TERMINATIONS (EXCLUDING DEATH)
 
(a) Retirement.  In the event of your Retirement prior to settlement of the Performance Share Units, you will be deemed vested in a prorated portion of the Performance Share Units granted, provided that you have been employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for at least one year following the Award Date and your employment has not been terminated by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for misconduct or other conduct deemed detrimental to the interests of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company; provided, however, that if you are only eligible for Retirement pursuant to Plan Section 2(x)(iii), and you are employed in the United States or Puerto Rico at the time of your Retirement, you shall be entitled to the pro rata vesting described in this Section 6(a) only if you execute and do not revoke a release in favor of the Company and its predecessors, successors, affiliates, subsidiaries, directors and employees in a form satisfactory to the Company; if you revoke or fail to execute the release, or your release fails to become effective and irrevocable within 60 days of the date your employment terminates, you shall forfeit any Performance Share Units that are unvested as of the date your employment terminates.  Any Performance Share Units deemed vested under this Section 6(a) shall be settled at the earlier of (i) the date such Performance Share Units would have settled if you had continued to be employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company or affiliate of the Company, (ii) in the event of a Change in Control meeting the conditions of Section 6(e)(ii), within 60 days following the date at which the Committee determines (which determination shall be made within 15 days after the Change in Control) the extent to which such Performance Share Units have been deemed vested (subject to Section 6(e) below and Plan Section 11(k)), where the achievement of the Performance Goals shall be determined in accordance with Plan Section 9(a)(ii), or (iii) in the event of your death, within 60 days following the later of (x) your death, or (y) the date upon which the Committee determines the extent to which such Performance Share Units have been deemed vested in accordance with Section 4 (in each case subject to Section 6(e) below and Plan Section 11(k)).  Following your Retirement, any Performance Share Units that have not been deemed vested and which thereafter will not be deemed vested under this Section 6(a) will be canceled and forfeited.
 
(b) Termination by the Company Not For Cause.  In the event of your Termination Not for Cause (as defined in Section 6(f)) by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company or affiliate of the Company and not during the Protected Period following a Change in Control, prior to vesting of Performance Share Units, you will be deemed vested in a prorated portion of the Performance Share Units granted, provided that you have been employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for at least one year following the Award Date; provided, however, that if you are not eligible for Retirement, and you are employed in the United States or Puerto Rico at the time of your Termination Not for Cause, you shall be entitled to the pro rata vesting described in this Section 6(b) only if you execute and do not revoke a release in favor of the Company and its predecessors, successors, affiliates, subsidiaries, directors and employees in a form satisfactory to the Company; if you revoke or fail to execute the release, or your release fails to become effective and irrevocable within 60 days of the date your employment terminates, you shall forfeit any Performance Share Units that are unvested as of the date your employment terminates.  Any Performance Share Units deemed vested under this Section 6(b) shall be settled at the earlier of (i) the date such Performance Share Units would have settled if you had continued to be employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company or affiliate of the Company, (ii) in the event of a Change in Control meeting the conditions of Section 6(e)(ii), within 60 days following the date at which the Committee determines (which determination shall be made within 15 days after the Change in Control) the extent to which such Performance Share Units have been deemed vested (subject to Section 6(e) below and Plan Section 11(k)), where the achievement of the Performance Goals shall be determined in accordance with Plan Section 9(a)(ii), or (iii) in the event of your death, within 60 days following the later of (x) your death, or (y) the date upon which the Committee determines the extent to which such Performance Share Units have been deemed vested in accordance with Section 4 (in each case, subject to Section 6(e) below and Plan Section 11(k)).   Following such Termination Not for Cause, any Performance Share Units that have not been vested and which thereafter will not be deemed vested under this Section 6(b) will be canceled and forfeited.

(c) Qualifying Termination Following a Change in Control.  In the event that you have a Qualifying Termination as defined in Plan Section 9(c) during the Protected Period following a Change in Control, you will be deemed fully vested in the Performance Share Units calculated based on the achievement of the Performance Goals determined in accordance with Plan Section 9(a)(ii).  Any of your  Performance Share Units deemed vested under this Section 6(c) shall be settled promptly following the date at which the Committee determines the extent to which such Performance Share Units have been vested (subject to Section 6(e) below and Plan Section 11(k))Upon your Qualifying Termination, any Performance Share Units that have not been deemed vested under this Section 6(c) will be canceled and forfeited. For the sake of clarity, the pro rata vesting of earned Performance Share Units set forth in Plan Section 9(a)(ii) shall not apply.
 
(d) Other Terminations.  If you cease to be an employee of the Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates for any reason other than Retirement, Termination Not for Cause, a Qualifying Termination within the Protected Period following a Change in Control, or death, Performance Share Units granted herein that have not become vested shall be canceled and forfeited and you shall have no right to settlement of any portion of such Performance Share Units.
 
(e) Special Distribution Rules to Comply with Code Section 409A.  The Performance Share Units constitute a “deferral of compensation” under Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”), based on Internal Revenue Service regulations and guidance in effect on the Award Date.  As a result, the timing of settlement of your Performance Share Units will be subject to applicable limitations under Code Section 409A.  Specifically, the Performance Share Units will be subject to Plan Section 11(k), including the following restrictions on settlement:
 
(i)           Settlement of the Performance Share Units under Section 6(c) upon a Qualifying Termination will be subject to the requirement that the termination constitute a “separation from service” under Treas. Reg. § 1.409A-1(h), and subject to the six-month delay rule under Plan Section 11(k)(i)(C)(2) if at the time of separation from service you are a “Specified Employee”; provided that no dividend or dividend equivalents will be paid, accrued or accumulated in respect of the period during which settlement was delayed.
 
(ii)          Settlement of the Performance Share Units under Sections 6(a) or 6(b) in the event of a Change in Control will occur only if an event relating to the Change in Control constitutes a change in ownership or effective control of the Company or a change in the ownership of a substantial portion of the assets of the Company within the meaning of Treas. Reg. § 1.409A-3(i)(5) and only if your Retirement under Section 6(a) or Termination Not for Cause under Section 6(b) constitute a “separation from service” under Treas. Reg. § 1.409A-1(h).

(f) Definition of “Termination Not for Cause.”  For purposes of this Section 6, a “Termination Not for Cause” means a termination initiated by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for reason other than willful misconduct, activity deemed detrimental to the interests of the Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates, or Disability (as defined in Section 7 below), provided that if you are employed in the United States or Puerto Rico at the time of your Termination Not for Cause, you execute and do not revoke a release in favor of the Company and its predecessors, successors, affiliates, subsidiaries, directors and employees in a form satisfactory to the Company by the applicable deadline specified in Section 6(b).
 
(g)  Determination of Termination Date.  For purposes of the Performance Share Units, your employment will be considered terminated as of the date you are no longer actively providing services to the Company or one of its subsidiaries or affiliates (regardless of the reason for such termination and whether or not later found to be invalid or in breach of employment laws in the jurisdiction where you are employed or the terms of your employment agreement, if any), and unless otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement or determined by the Company, your right to vest in the Performance Share Units under the Plan, if any, will terminate as of such date and will not be extended by any notice period (e.g., your period of service would not include any contractual notice period or any period of “garden leave” or similar period mandated under employment laws in the jurisdiction where you are employed or the terms of your employment agreement, if any); the Company shall have the exclusive discretion to determine when you are no longer actively providing services for purposes of your Performance Share Units (including whether you may still be considered to be providing services while on a leave of absence).
 
(h)          Release Procedure.  In any case in which you are required to execute a release as a condition to vesting and settlement of the Performance Share Units, the applicable procedure shall be as specified under Plan Section 11(k)(v), except that the deadline for complying with such condition shall be the period provided in this Agreement.
 
7.
DISABILITY OF PARTICIPANT
 
For purposes of this Agreement, “Disability” or “Disabled” shall mean qualifying for and receiving payments under a disability plan of the Company or any subsidiary of the Company or affiliate of the Company either in the United States or in a jurisdiction outside of the United States, and in jurisdictions outside of the United States shall also include qualifying for and receiving payments under a mandatory or universal disability plan or program managed or maintained by the government.  If you become Disabled, you will not be deemed to have terminated employment for the period during which, under the applicable Disability pay plan of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company or affiliate of the Company, you are deemed to be employed and continue to receive Disability payments.  However, no period of continued Disability shall continue beyond 29 months for purposes of this Agreement, at which time you will have considered to have separated from service in accordance with applicable laws as more fully provided for herein and specifically in Section 6(e) above. Upon the cessation of payments under such Disability pay plan, (i) if you return to employment status with the Company or a subsidiary or affiliate, you will not be deemed to have terminated employment, and (ii) if you do not return to such employment status or are considered to have separated from service as noted above, you will be deemed to have terminated employment at the date of cessation of such Disability payments, with such termination treated for purposes of the Performance Share Units as a Retirement, death, Termination Not for Cause or voluntary termination based on your circumstances at the time of such termination.

8.
DEATH OF PARTICIPANT
 
In the event of your death while employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and prior to settlement of Performance Share Units, you will be deemed vested in a prorated portion of Performance Share Units, provided that you have been employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for at least one year following the Award Date.  Your beneficiary shall be entitled to settlement of any of your Performance Share Units that were deemed vested within 60 days following the later of (x) your death, or (y) the date upon which the Committee determines the extent to which such Performance Share Units have been deemed vested in accordance with Section 4 (in each case, subject to Section 6(e) above and Plan Section 11(k)).  In the case of your death, any Performance Share Units that have not been vested and thereafter will not be deemed vested under this Section 8 will be canceled and forfeited.
 
9.
RESPONSIBILITY FOR TAXES
 
You acknowledge that, regardless of any action taken by the Company, any subsidiary or affiliate of the Company, including your employer (“Employer”), the ultimate liability for all income tax (including federal, state, local and non-U.S. taxes), social security, payroll tax, fringe benefits tax, payment on account or other tax-related items related to your participation in the Plan and legally applicable to you or deemed by the Company or the Employer to be an appropriate charge to you even if legally applicable to the Company or the Employer (“Tax-Related Items”) is and remains your responsibility and may exceed the amount actually withheld by the Company or the Employer, if any.  You further acknowledge that the Company, any subsidiary or affiliate and/or the Employer: (a) make no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related Items in connection with any aspect of the Performance Share Units, including the grant of the Performance Share Units, the vesting of Performance Share Units, the conversion of the Performance Share Units into Shares or the receipt of an equivalent cash payment, the subsequent sale of any Shares acquired at settlement and the receipt of any dividends; and, (b) do not commit to structure the terms of the grant or any aspect of the Performance Share Units to reduce or eliminate your liability for Tax-Related Items or achieve any particular tax result.  Further, if you are subject to Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction, you acknowledge 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 the relevant taxable event, you agree to make adequate arrangements satisfactory to the Company or the Employer to satisfy all Tax-Related Items.  In this regard, by your acceptance of the Performance Share Units, you authorize the Company and/or the Employer, or their respective agents, at their discretion, to satisfy any applicable withholding obligations with regard to all Tax-Related Items by one or a combination of the following:
 
(a)          withholding from your wages or other cash compensation paid to you by the Company and/or the Employer; or
 
(b)          withholding from proceeds of the sale of Shares acquired upon settlement of the Performance Share Units either through a voluntary sale or through a mandatory sale arranged by the Company (on your behalf pursuant to this authorization without further consent); or
 
(c)          withholding in Shares to be issued upon settlement of the Performance Share Units;
 
provided, however, if you are a Section 16 officer of the Company under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, then the Company will withhold Shares upon the relevant taxable or tax withholding event, as applicable, unless the use of such withholding method is problematic under applicable tax or securities law or has materially adverse accounting consequences, in which case, the obligation for Tax-Related Items may be satisfied by one or a combination of methods (a) and (b) above.
 
The Company may withhold or account for Tax-Related Items by considering applicable minimum statutory withholding rates or other applicable withholding rates, including maximum rates applicable in your jurisdiction(s), in which case you may receive a refund of any over-withheld amount in cash and will have no entitlement to the Share equivalent.  If the obligation for Tax-Related Items is satisfied by withholding in Shares, for tax purposes, you are deemed to have been issued the full number of Shares subject to the vested Performance Share Units, notwithstanding that a number of the Shares are held back solely for the purpose of paying the Tax-Related Items.
 
6

 
Finally, you agree to pay to the Company or the Employer, including through withholding from your wages or other cash compensation paid to you by the Company and/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 your participation in the Plan that cannot be satisfied by the means previously described.  The Company may refuse to issue or deliver the Shares or the proceeds of the sale of Shares, if you fail to comply with your obligations in connection with the Tax-Related Items.
 
Notwithstanding anything in this Section 9 to the contrary, to avoid a prohibited acceleration under Section 409A, if Shares subject to the Performance Share Units will be sold on your behalf (or withheld) to satisfy any Tax-Related Items arising prior to the date of settlement of the Performance Share Units for any portion of the Performance Share Units that is considered nonqualified deferred compensation subject to Section 409A, then the number of shares sold on your behalf (or withheld) shall not exceed the number of shares that equals the liability for Tax-Related Items.
10.
NON-COMPETITION AND NON-SOLICITATION AGREEMENT AND COMPANY RIGHT TO INJUNCTIVE RELIEF, DAMAGES, RESCISSION, FORFEITURE AND OTHER REMEDIES
 You acknowledge that the grant of Performance Share Units pursuant to this Agreement is sufficient consideration for this Agreement, including, without limitation, all applicable restrictions imposed on you by this Section 10.
 
(a)          Confidentiality Obligations and Agreement. By accepting this Agreement, you agree and/or reaffirm the terms of all agreements related to treatment of Confidential Information that you signed at the inception of or during your employment, the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference.  This includes, but is not limited to, use or disclosure of any BMS Confidential Information, Proprietary Information, or Trade Secrets to third parties.  Confidential Information, Proprietary Information, and Trade secrets include, but are not limited to, any information gained in the course of your employment with the Company that is marked as confidential or could reasonably be expected to harm the Company if disclosed to third parties, including without limitation, any information that could reasonably be expected to aid a competitor or potential competitor in making inferences regarding the nature of the Company’s business activities, where such inferences could reasonably be expected to allow such competitor to compete more effectively with the Company.   You agree that you will not remove or disclose Company Confidential Information, Proprietary Information or Trade Secrets.  Unauthorized removal includes forwarding or downloading confidential information to personal email or other electronic media and/or copying the information to personal unencrypted thumb drives, cloud storage or drop box.    Immediately upon termination of your employment for any reason, you will return to the Company all of the Company’s confidential and other business materials that you have or that are in your possession or control and all copies thereof, including all tangible embodiments thereof, whether in hard copy or electronic format and you shall not retain any versions thereof on any personal computer or any other media (e.g., flash drives, thumb drives, external hard drives and the like). In addition, you will thoroughly search personal electronic devices, drives, cloud-based storage, email, cell phones, and social media to ensure that all Company information has been deleted.  In the event that you comingle personal and Company confidential information on these devices or storage media, you hereby consent to the removal and permanent deletion of all information on these devices and media. Nothing in this paragraph or Agreement limits or prohibits your right to report potential violations of law , rules, or regulations to, or communicate with, cooperate with, testify before, or otherwise assist in an investigation or proceeding by, any government agency or entity, or engage in any other conduct that is required or protected by law or regulation, and you are not required to obtain the prior authorization of the Company to do so and are not required to notify the Company that you have done so.
 
7

 
(b)          Inventions.  To the extent permitted by local law, you agree and/or reaffirm the terms of all agreements related to inventions that you signed at the inception of or during your employment, and agree to promptly disclose and assign to the Company all of your interest in any and all inventions, discoveries, improvements and business or marketing concepts related to the current or contemplated business or activities of the Company, and which are conceived or made by you, either alone or in conjunction with others, at any time or place during the period you are employed by the Company. Upon request of the Company, including after your termination, you agree to execute, at the Company’s expense, any and all applications, assignments, or other documents which the Company shall determine necessary to apply for and obtain letters patent to protect the Company’s interest in such inventions, discoveries, and improvements and to cooperate in good faith in any legal proceedings to protect the Company’s intellectual property.

(c)          Non-Competition, Non-Solicitation and Related Covenants.  By accepting this Agreement, you agree to the restrictive covenants outlined in this section unless expressly prohibited by local law or as follows:  The post-termination non-compete restrictions outlined in subparagraphs (i), (ii) and (v) of this Section 10(c) do not apply to overtime eligible employees, to lawyers working in the Company law department or to employees who are, at the time of termination from employment by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, assigned to work for the Company or a subsidiary of the Company resident full-time in the States of California or North Dakota, except that should said employee accept employment outside of California or North Dakota, all restrictions in Section 10(c), including, but not limited to, those pertaining to post-termination activities, shall be fully enforceable. There are no exemptions for any Award recipients (including employee residents of the States of California and North Dakota) regarding non-compete provisions while employed at the Company or from subparagraphs (iii) and (iv) of this Section 10(c) during the entire Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period.  If you are assigned to work for the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and resident full-time in Massachusetts or are residing primarily in Massachusetts as of the date of this Agreement, Addendum B to this Agreement shall apply in lieu of Section 10(c), 10(d) and 10(e) of this Agreement.
 
Given the extent and nature of the confidential information that you have obtained or will obtain during the course of your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, it would be inevitable or, at the least, substantially probable that such confidential information would be disclosed or utilized by you should you obtain employment from, or otherwise become associated with, an entity or person that is engaged in a business or enterprise that directly competes with the Company.  Even if not inevitable, it would be impossible or impracticable for the Company to monitor your strict compliance with your confidentiality obligations.  Consequently, you agree that you will not, directly or indirectly:
 
(i)
during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period (as defined below), own or have any financial interest in a Competitive Business (as defined below), except that nothing in this clause shall prevent you from owning one per cent or less of the outstanding securities of any entity whose securities are traded on a U.S. national securities exchange (including NASDAQ) or an equivalent foreign exchange;

(ii)
during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, whether or not for compensation, either on your own behalf or as an employee, officer, agent, consultant, director, owner, partner, joint venturer, shareholder, investor, or in any other capacity, be actively connected with a Competitive Business or otherwise advise or assist a Competitive Business with regard to any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business that competes with any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business with which you worked or about which you became familiar as a result of your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, after your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company terminates for any reason, you may be affiliated with a Competitive Business provided that your affiliation does not involve any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business, that competes with any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business with which you were involved within the last twelve months of your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, including any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business which the Company is developing and of which you had knowledge, and you and the Competing Business provide the Company written assurances of this fact prior to your commencing such affiliation;

(iii)
[with respect to executives], during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, employ, solicit for employment, solicit, induce, encourage, or participate in soliciting, inducing or encouraging any Company employee who is employed by the Company or who was employed by the Company within the twelve months preceding the termination of your employment with the Company for any reason, to terminate or reduce his or her or its relationship with the Company or any of its affiliates, successors or assigns (the Related Parties”). This restriction includes, but is not limited to, participation in any parts of the staffing and hiring processes involving a candidate regardless of the means by which the new employer became aware of the candidate;

(iv)
during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, solicit, induce, encourage, or appropriate or attempt to solicit, divert or appropriate, by use of Confidential Information or otherwise, any existing or prospective customer, vendor or supplier of the Company or any Related Parties to terminate, cancel or otherwise reduce its relationship with the Company or any Related Parties;

(v)
during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, contact, call upon or solicit any existing customer of the Company or its Related Parties, or prospective customer of the Company or its Related Parties, that you became aware of or was introduced to in the course of your duties for the Company or its Related Parties, or otherwise divert or take away from the Company or its Related Parties the business of any current or prospective customer of the Company or its Related Parties; or

(vi)
during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, engage in any activity that is harmful to the interests of the Company or its Related Parties, including, without limitation, any conduct during the term of your employment that violates the Company’s Standards of Business Conduct and Ethics, securities trading policy and other policies.

(d)          Rescission, Forfeiture and Other Remedies.  If the Company determines that you have violated any applicable provisions of Section 10(c) above during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, in addition to injunctive relief and damages, you agree and covenant that:
 
(i)
any unvested portion of the Performance Share Units shall be immediately rescinded;

(ii)
you shall automatically forfeit any rights you may have with respect to the Performance Share Units as of the date of such determination;

(iii)
if the Performance Share Units vests within the twelve-month period immediately preceding a violation of Section 10(c) above (or following the date of any such violation), upon the Company’s demand, you shall immediately deliver to it a certificate or certificates for Shares that you acquired upon settlement of such Performance Share Units (or an equivalent number of other shares); and

(ii)
Because of the global nature of the Company’s business, it is agreed that the restrictions set forth above shall apply in the “Restricted Area,” defined as including without limitation the continent, country and the geographic regions where you worked in and were responsible for while employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, and any other geographic area (country, province, state, city or other political subdivision) in which the Company or a subsidiary of the Company is engaged in business and/or is otherwise selling products or services at the time you ceased working for the Company or a subsidiary of the Company;

provided, in the event that the Company or a subsidiary of the Company files an action to enforce rights arising out of this Agreement, the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period shall be extended for all periods of time in which you are determined by the Court or other authority to have been in violation of the provisions of Section 10(c).

(f)          Severability.  You acknowledge and agree that the period, scope and geographic areas of restriction imposed upon you by this Section 10 are fair and reasonable and are reasonably required for the protection of the Company.  In case any one or more of the provisions contained in this Agreement should be held invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions will not in any way be affected or impaired and this Agreement shall nevertheless continue to be valid and enforceable as though the invalid provisions were not part of this Agreement.  If the final judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction or other authority declares that any term or provision hereof is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the parties agree that the court making such determination shall have the power to reduce the scope, duration, area or applicability of the term or provision, to delete specific words or phrases, or to replace any invalid, illegal or unenforceable term or provision with a term or provision that is valid, legal and enforceable to the maximum extent permissible under law and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid, illegal or unenforceable term or provision.  You acknowledge and agree that your covenants under this Agreement are ancillary to your employment relationship with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, but shall be independent of any other contractual relationship between you and the Company or a subsidiary of the Company.  Consequently, the existence of any claim or cause of action that you may have against the Company or a subsidiary of the Company shall not constitute a defense to the enforcement of this Agreement by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, nor an excuse for noncompliance with this Agreement.

You further agree that if the Company incurs legal fees or costs in enforcing this Agreement, you will reimburse the Company for such fees and costs.
 
(h)          Binding Obligations.  These obligations shall be binding both upon you, your assigns, executors, administrators and legal representatives. At the inception of or during the course of your employment, you may have executed agreements that contain similar terms. Those agreements remain in full force and effect.  In the event that there is a conflict between the terms of those agreements and this Agreement, this Agreement will control.
 
(i)          Enforcement.  The Company retains discretion regarding whether or not to enforce the terms of the covenants contained in this Section 10 and its decision not to do so in your instance or anyone’s case shall not be considered a waiver of the Company’s right to do so.
 
(j)          Duty to Notify the Company and Third Parties.  During your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and for a period of 12 months after your termination of employment from the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, you shall communicate your obligations under this Agreement to each subsequent employer.  In addition, at least ten (10) business days prior to commencing employment with a new employer, you shall advise the Company of the name and address of your intended future employer, the title of the position that you have been offered with that subsequent employer, the product and/or investigational compound responsibilities that you will have with the subsequent employer and such information as the Company may request that will assist the Company in evaluating whether such prospective employment would violate this Agreement (except that you need not provide any information that would constitute a trade secret or confidential information of any other party).  If you are actively employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company at the time that you accept a position with a new employer, you are required to notify the Company and provide this information immediately upon your acceptance of the position with the new employer and the Company may choose, in its sole discretion, to limit your duties in your position with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and restrict your access to Company premises, systems, products, information and employees during the notice period.  You understand and agree that the notice requirement set forth in this Section 10(j) is reasonable and necessary to permit the Company to determine whether, in its view, your proposed new position could lead to a violation of this Agreement.  Upon receiving information provided concerning your intended future employment, the Company will evaluate that information and attempt in good faith to engage you in a discussion regarding the applicability and effect of the covenants in this Agreement upon that employment prior to the Company commencing legal action to enforce those covenants.  You also authorize the Company to notify third parties, including without limitation, customers and actual or potential employers, of the terms of this Agreement and your obligations hereunder upon your separation from the Company group or your separation from employment with any subsequent employer during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, by providing a copy of this Agreement or otherwise.

Exhibit A
 
PERFORMANCE SHARE UNITS AGREEMENT
Under the Bristol-Myers Squibb Company
2012 Stock Award and Incentive Plan

2019-2021 Performance Share Units Award
Performance Goals for the Performance Period and TSR Measurement Period

 Participant shall vest in Performance Share Units in the manner set forth in this Exhibit A.
 
Between February 28, 2022 and March 10, 2022, the Committee shall determine and certify the extent to which Performance Share Units are deemed vested based on the Company’s 2019-2021 Total Revenues Performance (net of foreign exchange), 2019-2021 Non-GAAP Operating Margin Performance and Three-Year Relative Total Shareholder Return (“TSR”) Performance, determined based on the following grid:
 
Performance Measure
Threshold
Target
Maximum
January 1, 2019 – December 31, 2021 Total Revenues, net of foreign exchange ($=MM)
     
January 1, 2019 – December 31, 2021 Non-GAAP Operating Margin
     
March 10, 2019 – February 28, 2022 Relative TSR
     
 
Participant shall vest in 50% of the target number of Performance Share Units for “Threshold Performance,” 100% of the target number of Performance Share Units for “Target Performance,” and 200% of the target number of Performance Share Units for “Maximum Performance.”  For this purpose, 2019-2021 Total Revenues Performance (net of foreign exchange) is weighted 33%, 2019-2021 Non-GAAP Operating Margin Performance is Weighted 33% and Three-Year Relative TSR Performance is weighted 34%, so the level of vesting of Performance Share Units shall be determined on a weighted-average basis.
 
“Non-GAAP Operating Margin” shall mean (a) earnings before interest and tax, less other income and expenses, divided by (b) total revenues (net of foreign exchange).

“Total Shareholder Return (TSR)” shall mean the change in the value, expressed as a percentage of a given dollar amount invested in a company’s most widely publicly traded stock over the TSR Measurement Period, taking into account both stock price appreciation (or depreciation) and the reinvestment of dividends (including the cash value of non-cash dividends) in additional stock of the company.  The ten (10) trading-day average closing values of the Company’s Common Stock and the stock of the Peer Companies, as applicable (i.e., average closing values over the period of 10 trading days ending on the Award Date and the final 10 trading days ending on the last day of the TSR Measurement Period), shall be used to value the Company’s Common Stock and the stock of the Peer Companies, as applicable, at the beginning and end of the TSR Measurement Period.  Dividend reinvestment shall be calculated consistently for the Company and all Peer Companies.
 

 
“Peer Companies” shall mean the following companies which remain publicly traded throughout the entire TSR Measurement Period:

AbbVie
GlaxoSmithKline
Amgen
Johnson & Johnson
AstraZeneca
Merck
Biogen
Novartis
Celgene
Pfizer
Eli Lilly
Roche
Gilead Sciences
Sanofi

Companies that were publicly traded as of the Award Date but are no longer publicly traded as of the end of the TSR Measurement Period shall be excluded, except that companies that are no longer publicly traded as of the end of the TSR Measurement Period due to filing for bankruptcy prior to the end of the TSR Measurement Period shall be assigned a Total Shareholder Return of -100% for the TSR Measurement Period.  In the case of a merger or acquisition involving two Peer Companies during the TSR Measurement Period, the acquiree or merged company, as the case may be, shall be removed from the list of Peer Companies, and the acquirer or successor company, as the case may be, shall remain on the list of Peer Companies.  In the case of a spinoff involving a Peer Company during the TSR Measurement Period, such company shall remain on the list of Peer Companies, provided that it remains an appropriate peer.  Any new company formed as a result of the spinoff shall not be added to the list of Peer Companies for the current TSR Measurement Period (however, such company may be added to the list of Peer Companies for subsequent awards, if the Committee deems such inclusion appropriate). For the avoidance of doubt, following the closing (the “Closing”) of the Company’s acquisition of Celgene Corporation (“Celgene”), Celgene shall be removed from the list of Peer Companies.
 
“TSR Measurement Period” shall mean March 10, 2019 to February 28, 2022.
 
“TSR Percentile Rank” shall mean the percentage of TSR values among the Peer Companies during the TSR Measurement Period that are lower than the Company’s TSR during the TSR Measurement Period.  For example, if the Company’s TSR during the TSR Measurement Period is at the 51st percentile, 49% of the Peer Companies had higher TSR during the TSR Measurement Period and 51% of the companies in the Peer Companies had equal or lower TSR during the TSR Measurement Period.  For purposes of the TSR Percentile Rank calculation, the Company will be excluded from the group of Peer Companies.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, because of the potentially significant change in the Company’s operations following the Closing, the principles described below will apply in determining the Company’s 2019-2021 Total Revenues Performance and 2019-2021 Non-GAAP Operating Margin Performance following the Closing.

Total Revenues.  Revenues the Committee determines are derived from Celgene’s business and products will not be taken into account in measuring the Company’s 2019-2021 Total Revenues Performance.  Accordingly, only the revenues from the Company’s operations will be used to determine the Company’s 2019-2021 Total Revenues Performance.

Operating Margin. Only the Company’s pre-Closing performance will be taken into account in determining the 2019-2021 Non-GAAP Operating Margin Performance.  Accordingly, the Performance Period for this performance measure will be shortened to end within a reasonable period of the Closing.  The Company’s Non-GAAP Operating Margin Performance for this period will be “locked” and this performance will used to determine the number of Performance Share Units eligible to vest based on this performance measure.

The principles described will apply to all outstanding Performance Stock Units, including those issued in 2017 and 2018.

Determinations of the Committee regarding 2019-2021 Total Revenues Performance (net of foreign exchange), 2019-2021 Non-GAAP Operating Margin Performance, Three-Year Relative TSR Performance and the resulting Performance Share Units vested, and related matters, will be final and binding on Participant.  In making its determinations with respect to 2019-2021 Total Revenues Performance (net of foreign exchange), 2019-2021 Non-GAAP Operating Margin Performance and Three-Year Relative TSR Performance, the Committee may exercise its discretion (reserved under Plan Section 7(a)) to increase or reduce the amount of Performance Share Units deemed vested, in its sole discretion.

This Addendum A also includes information of which you should be aware with respect to your participation in the Plan.  For example, certain individual exchange control reporting requirements may apply upon vesting of the Performance Share Units and/or sale of Shares.  The information is based on the securities, exchange control and other laws in effect in the respective countries as of January 2019 and is provided for informational purposes.  Such laws are often complex and change frequently, and results may be different based on the particular facts and circumstances.  As a result, the Company strongly recommends that you do not rely on the information noted herein as the only source of information relating to the consequences of your participation in the Plan because the information may be out of date at the time your Performance Share Units vest or are settled, or you sell Shares acquired under the Plan.
 
In addition, the information is general in nature and may not apply to your particular situation, and the Company is not in a position to assure you of any particular result.  Accordingly, you should seek appropriate professional advice as to how the relevant laws in your country may apply to your situation.
 
Finally, if you are a citizen or resident of a country other than the one in which you currently are residing and/or working, transfer employment after the Performance Share Units are granted to you, or are considered a resident of another country for local law purposes, the information contained herein for the country you are residing and/or working in at the time of grant may not be applicable to you, and the Company shall, in its discretion, determine to what extent the terms and conditions contained herein shall be applicable to you.  If you transfer residency and/or employment to another country or are considered a resident of another country listed in this Addendum A after the Performance Share Units are granted to you, the terms and/or information contained for that new country (rather than the original grant country) may be applicable to you.

Data Privacy Consent.

By accepting the Award, you explicitly and unambiguously consent to the collection, use and transfer, in electronic or other form, of your personal data as described in the Agreement by and among, as applicable, the Employer, the Company and its other subsidiaries and affiliates for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing your participation in the Plan.
 
1

 
You understand that the Company, the Employer and other subsidiaries and affiliates of the Company may hold certain personal information about you, including, but not limited to, your name, home address and telephone number, email address, date of birth, employee ID, social security number, passport or other identification number (e.g., resident registration number), tax code, hire date, termination date, termination code, division name, division code, region name, salary grade, nationality, job title, any shares of stock or directorships held in the Company, details of all Performance Share Units or any other entitlement to shares awarded, canceled, vested, unvested or outstanding in your favor (“Data”), for the purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Plan.

You understand that Data will be transferred to Fidelity Stock Plan Services and certain of its affiliates (“Fidelity”), or such other stock plan service provider as may be selected by the Company in the future, which assist in the implementation, administration and management of the Plan.  You understand that the recipients of the Data may be located in the United States or elsewhere, and that the recipient’s country (e.g. the United States) may have different data privacy laws and protections than your country.  You understand that if you reside outside the United States, you may request a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of the Data by contacting your local human resources representative.  You authorize the Company, Fidelity and 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 purpose of implementing, administering and managing your participation in the Plan, including any requisite transfer of such Data as may be required to a broker, escrow agent or other third party with whom the Shares received upon vesting of the Performance Share Units may be deposited.  You understand that Data will be held only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage your participation in the Plan.  You understand that if you reside outside the United States, you may, at any time, view Data, request 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 your local human resources representative.  Further, you understand that you are providing the consents herein on a purely voluntary basis.  If you do not consent, or if you later seek to revoke your consent, your employment status or service with the Employer will not be affected; the only consequence of refusing or withdrawing your consent is that the Company would not be able to grant Performance Share Units or other equity awards to you or administer or maintain such awards.  Therefore, you understand that refusing or withdrawing your consent may affect your ability to participate in the Plan.  For more information on the consequences of your refusal to consent or withdrawal of consent, you understand that you may contact your local human resources representative.

Upon request of the Company or the Employer, you agree to provide a separate executed data privacy consent form (or any other agreements or consents that may be required by the Company and/or the Employer) that the Company and/or the Employer may deem necessary to obtain from you for the purpose of administering your participation in the Plan in compliance with the data privacy laws in your country, either now or in the future.  You understand and agree that you will not be able to participate in the Plan if you fail to provide any such consent or agreement requested by the Company and/or the Employer.

Stock Exchange Tax Information.  A stock exchange tax applies to transactions executed by a Belgian resident through a non-Belgian financial intermediary, such as a U.S. broker.  The stock exchange tax likely will apply when Shares acquired under the Plan are sold.  You should consult with your tax or financial advisor for additional details on your obligations with respect to the stock exchange tax.
 
Brokerage Account Tax Information. You may be subject to a brokerage account tax if the average annual value of securities (including Shares acquired under the Plan) held by you in a brokerage account exceeds certain thresholds.  As the calculation of this tax is complex, you should consult your personal tax advisor for more details.
 
Brazil
 
Labor Law Policy and Acknowledgement.  This provision supplements Section 13 of the Agreement:

Securities Law Information.  You acknowledge and agree that you will sell Shares acquired through participation in the Plan only outside of Canada through the facilities of a stock exchange on which the Shares are listed.  Currently, the Shares are listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
 
Termination of Employment.  This provision supplements Section 6(g) of the Agreement:
 
In the event of termination of your employment (for any reason whatsoever, whether or not later found to be invalid or in breach of employment laws in the jurisdiction where you are employed or the terms of your employment agreement, if any), unless otherwise provided in this Agreement or the Plan, your right to vest in the Performance Share Units, if any, will terminate effective as of the date that is the earlier of (1) the date upon which your employment with the Company or any of its subsidiaries is terminated; (2) the date you are no longer actively employed by or providing services to the Company or any of its subsidiaries; or (3) the date you receive written notice of termination of employment, regardless of any notice period or period of pay in lieu of such notice required under applicable laws (including, but not limited to statutory law, regulatory law and/or common law); the Committee shall have the exclusive discretion to determine when you are no longer employed or actively providing services for purposes of the Performance Share Units (including whether you may still be considered employed or actively providing services while on a leave of absence).
 
Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information.  You may be required to report your foreign specified property on Form T1135 (Foreign Income Verification Statement) if the total cost of your foreign specified property exceeds C$100,000 at any time in the year.  Foreign property includes cash held outside of Canada and Shares acquired under the Plan, and rights to receive Shares (e.g., Performance Share Units).  Thus, Performance Share Units must be reported - generally at nil cost - if the C$100,000 cost threshold is exceeded because of other foreign specified property.  The Form T1135 must be filed by April 30 of the following year.  When Shares are acquired, their cost generally is the adjusted cost base (“ACB”) of the Shares.  The ACB would ordinarily equal the fair market value of the Shares at the time of acquisition, but if you own other Shares of the same company, this ACB may have to be averaged with the ACB of the other Shares.  You should consult with your personal tax advisor to determine your reporting requirements.

Esta oferta de Unidades de Acciones Restringidas constituye una oferta privada de valores en Chile y se inicia en la Fecha de la Concesión.  Esta oferta de Unidades de Acciones Restringidas se acoge a las disposiciones de la Norma de Carácter General Nº 336 (“NCG 336”) de la Comisión para el Mercado Financiero, “CMF”).  Esta oferta versa sobre valores no inscritos en el Registro de Valores o en el Registro de Valores Extranjeros que lleva la CMF, por lo que tales valores no están sujetos a la fiscalización de ésta.  Por tratarse los Unidades de Acciones Restringidas de valores no registrados en Chile, no existe obligación por parte de la Compañía de entregar en Chile información pública respecto de los Unidades de Acciones Restringidas or sus Acciones.  Estos valores no podrán ser objeto de oferta pública en Chile mientras no sean inscritos en el Registro de Valores correspondiente.
 
Exchange Control Information.  You are responsible for complying with foreign exchange requirements in Chile.  You should consult with your personal legal advisor regarding any applicable exchange control obligations prior to vesting in the Performance Share Units or receiving proceeds from the sale of Shares acquired at vesting or cash dividends.
 
You are not required to repatriate funds obtained from the sale of Shares or the receipt of any dividends.  However, if you decide to repatriate such funds, you must do so through the Formal Exchange Market if the amount of funds exceeds US$10,000.  In such case, you must report the payment to a commercial bank or registered foreign exchange office receiving the funds.  If your aggregate investments held outside of Chile exceed US$5,000,000 (including Shares and any cash proceeds obtained under the Plan) in the relevant calendar year, you must report the investments quarterly to the Central Bank.  Annex 3.1 of Chapter XII of the Foreign Exchange Regulations must be used to file this report.  Please note that exchange control regulations in Chile are subject to change.

You should consult with your personal legal advisor regarding how to register with the CIRS as you maybe ineligible to receive certain foreign tax credits if you fail to meet the applicable reporting requirements.  Exchange control and tax reporting requirements in Chile are subject to change, and you should consult with your personal legal and tax advisor regarding any reporting obligations that you may have in connection with the Performance Share Units.
 
Addendum-6

 
China
 
The following provisions apply if you are subject to the exchange control regulations in China, as determined by the Company in its sole discretion:
 
Sale of Shares.  To comply with exchange control regulations in China, you agree that the Company is authorized to force the sale of Shares to be issued to you upon vesting and settlement of the Performance Share Units at any time (including immediately upon vesting or after termination of your employment, as described below), and you expressly authorize the Company’s designated broker to complete the sale of Shares.  You agree to sign any agreements, forms and/or consents that may be reasonably requested by the Company (or the designated broker) to effectuate the sale of Shares and shall otherwise cooperate with the Company with respect to such matters, provided that you shall not be permitted to exercise any influence over how, when or whether the sales occur.  You acknowledge that the Company’s designated broker is under no obligation to arrange for the sale of Shares at any particular price.
 
Upon the sale of Shares, the Company agrees to pay the cash proceeds from the sale of Shares (less any applicable Tax-Related Items, brokerage fees or commissions) to you in accordance with applicable exchange control laws and regulations, including, but not limited to, the restrictions set forth in this Addendum A for China below under “Exchange Control Information.”  Due to fluctuations in the Share price and/or applicable exchange rates between the vesting date and (if later) the date on which the Shares are sold, the amount of proceeds realized upon sale may be more or less than the market value of the Shares on the vesting date (which typically is the amount relevant to determining your Tax-Related Items liability).  You understand and agree that the Company is not responsible for the amount of any loss you may incur and that the Company assumes no liability for any fluctuations in the Share price and/or any applicable exchange rate.
 
Treatment of Shares and Performance Share Units Upon Termination of Employment.  Due to exchange control regulations in China, you understand and agree that any Shares acquired under the Plan and held by you in your brokerage account must be sold no later than the last business day of the month following the month of your termination of employment, or within such other period as determined by the Company or required by the China State Administration of Foreign Exchange (“SAFE”) (the “Mandatory Sale Date”).  For example, if your termination of employment occurs on March 14, 2019, then the Mandatory Sale Date will be April 30, 2019.  You understand that any Shares held by you that have not been sold by the Mandatory Sale Date will automatically be sold by the Company’s designated broker at the Company’s direction (on your behalf pursuant to this authorization without further consent), as described under “Sale of Shares” above.
 
Notwithstanding anything in the Agreement to the contrary, if all or a portion of the Shares to be issued to you upon vesting and settlement of the Performance Share Units become distributable upon your termination of employment or at some time following your termination of employment, then such Shares (i) will vest and become distributable within three months of your employment without application of the TSR Modifier; and (ii) must be sold by the Mandatory Sale Date or will be sold by the Company’s designated broker at the Company’s direction (on your behalf pursuant to this authorization without further consent), as described under “Sale of Shares” above.  You will not continue to vest in Performance Share Units or be entitled to any portion of Performance Share Units after your termination of employment.
 
Addendum-7

 
Exchange Control Information. You understand and agree that, to facilitate compliance with exchange control requirements, you are required to hold any Shares to be issued to you upon vesting and settlement of the Performance Share Units in the account that has been established for you with the Company’s designated broker and you acknowledge that you are prohibited from transferring any such Shares to another brokerage account.  In addition, you are required to immediately repatriate to China the cash proceeds from the sale of Shares issued upon vesting and settlement of the Performance Share Units and any dividends paid on such Shares.  You further understand that such repatriation of the cash proceeds will be effectuated through a special exchange control account established by the Company or its subsidiaries, and you hereby consent and agree that the proceeds may be transferred to such special account prior to being delivered to you.  The Company may deliver the proceeds to you in U.S. dollars or local currency at the Company’s discretion.  If the proceeds are paid in U.S. dollars, you understand that you will be required to set up a U.S. dollar bank account in China so that the proceeds may be deposited into this account. If the proceeds are converted to local currency, there may be delays in delivering the proceeds to you and due to fluctuations in the Share trading price and/or the U.S. dollar/PRC exchange rate between the sale/payment date and (if later) when the proceeds can be converted into local currency, the proceeds that you receive may be more or less than the market value of the Shares on the sale/payment date (which is the amount relevant to determining your tax liability).  You agree to bear the risk of any currency fluctuation between the sale/payment date and the date of conversion of the proceeds into local currency.
 
You further agree to comply with any other requirements that may be imposed by the Company in the future to facilitate compliance with exchange control requirements in China.
 
Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information.  PRC residents are required to report to SAFE details of their foreign financial assets and liabilities, as well as details of any economic transactions conducted with non-PRC residents, either directly or through financial institutions.  Under these rules, you may be subject to reporting obligations for the Shares or equity awards, including Performance Share Units, acquired under the Plan and Plan-related transactions.  It is your responsibility to comply with this reporting obligation and you should consult your personal advisor in this regard.

You should consult with your personal advisor to ensure compliance with any applicable obligations.

Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information.  If you are an Italian resident who, at any time during the fiscal year, holds foreign financial assets (including cash and Shares) which may generate income taxable in Italy, you are required to report these assets on your annual tax return (UNICO Form, RW Schedule) for the year during which the assets are held, or on a special form if no tax return is due.  These reporting obligations also apply if you are the beneficial owner of foreign financial assets under Italian money laundering provisions.

For the purposes of the market value assessment, the documentation issued by the Plan broker may be used.  If you are subject to this foreign financial assets tax, you will need to report the value of your financial assets held abroad in your annual tax return.  You are advised to consult your personal legal advisor for additional information about the foreign financial assets tax.

Data Privacy.  This section replaces the Data Privacy Consent provision above in this Addendum A:
 
You hereby explicitly and unambiguously consent to the collection, use and transfer, in electronic or other form, of your personal data as described in this Agreement by and among, as applicable, the Employer, the Company and its subsidiaries for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing your participation in the Plan.
 
You understand that the Company, any subsidiary and/or the Employer may hold certain personal information about you, including, but not limited to, your name, home address, email address and telephone number, date of birth, social insurance or passport number or other identification number (e.g., resident registration number) , salary, nationality, job title, any shares of stock or directorships held in the Company, details of all Performance Share Units or any other entitlement to shares awarded, canceled, vested, unvested or outstanding in your favor (“Data”), for the purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Plan.
 
You understand that Data may be transferred to Fidelity, or such other stock plan service provider as may be selected by the Company in the future, which assists in the implementation, administration and management of the Plan.  You understand that the recipients of the Data may be located in the United States or elsewhere, and that the recipient’s country (e.g. the United States) may have different data privacy laws and protections than your country.  In this case, appropriate safeguards will be taken by the Company to ensure that your Data is processed with an adequate level of protection and in compliance with applicable local laws and regulation (especially through contractual clauses like European Model Clauses for European countries).  You understand that if you reside outside the United States, you may request a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of the Data by contacting the International Compensation and Benefits Group.  You authorize the Company, Fidelity and 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 purpose of implementing, administering and managing your participation in the Plan, including any requisite transfer of such Data as may be required to a broker, escrow agent or other third party with whom the Shares received upon vesting of the Performance Share Units may be deposited.  You understand that Data will be held only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage your participation in the Plan.  You understand that if you reside outside the United States, you 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 and without cost, by contacting in writing the International Compensation and Benefits Group.  Further, you understand that you are providing the consents herein on a purely voluntary basis.  If you do not consent, or if you later seek to revoke your consent, your employment status or service with the Employer will not be affected; the only consequence of refusing or withdrawing your consent is that the Company would not be able to grant you Performance Share Units or other equity awards or administer or maintain such awards.  Therefore, you understand that refusing or withdrawing your consent may affect your ability to participate in the Plan.  For more information on the consequences of your refusal to consent or withdrawal of consent, you understand that you may contact the International Compensation and Benefits Group.

Spain
 
 Labor Law Acknowledgment.  This provision supplements Sections 6 and 13 of the Agreement:
 
By accepting the Performance Share Units, you consent to participation in the Plan and acknowledge that you have received a copy of the Plan document.
 
You understand and agree that, as a condition of the grant of the Performance Share Units, except as provided for in Section 2 of the Agreement, your termination of employment for any reason (including for the reasons listed below) will automatically result in the forfeiture of any Performance Share Units that have not vested on the date of your termination.
 
In particular, you understand and agree that, unless otherwise provided in the Agreement, the Performance Share Units will be forfeited without entitlement to the underlying Shares or to any amount as indemnification in the event of a termination of your employment prior to vesting by reason of, including, but not limited to: resignation, disciplinary dismissal adjudged to be with cause, disciplinary dismissal adjudged or recognized to be without good cause (i.e., subject to a “despido improcedente”), individual or collective layoff on objective grounds, whether adjudged to be with cause or adjudged or recognized to be without cause, material modification of the terms of employment under Article 41 of the Workers’ Statute, relocation under Article 40 of the Workers’ Statute, Article 50 of the Workers’ Statute, unilateral withdrawal by the Employer, and under Article 10.3 of Royal Decree 1382/1985.
 
Furthermore, you understand that the Company has unilaterally, gratuitously and discretionally decided to grant Performance Share Units under the Plan to individuals who may be employees of the Company or a subsidiary.  The decision is a limited decision that is entered into upon the express assumption and condition that any grant will not economically or otherwise bind the Company or any subsidiary on an ongoing basis, other than as expressly set forth in the Agreement.  Consequently, you understand that the Performance Share Units are granted on the assumption and condition that the Performance Share Units and the Shares underlying the Performance Share Units shall not become a part of any employment or service contract (either with the Company, the Employer or any subsidiary) and shall not be considered a mandatory benefit, salary for any purposes (including severance compensation) or any other right whatsoever.  In addition, you understand that the Performance Share Units would not be granted to you but for the assumptions and conditions referred to above; thus, you acknowledge 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 award of Performance Share Units shall be null and void.
 
Addendum-17

 
Securities Law Information.  The Performance Share Units and the Shares described in the Agreement and this Addendum A do not qualify under Spanish regulations as securities.  No “offer of securities to the public,” as defined under Spanish law, has taken place or will take place in the Spanish territory.  The Agreement (including this Addendum A) has not been nor will it be registered with the Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores, and does not constitute a public offering prospectus.
 
Exchange Control Information.  If you acquire Shares issued pursuant to the Performance Share Units and wish to import the ownership title of such shares (i.e., share certificates) into Spain, you must declare the importation of such securities to the Spanish Direccion General de Comercio e inversiones (the “DGCI”). Generally, the declaration must be made in January for Shares acquired or sold during (or owned as of December 31 of) the prior year; however, if the value of shares acquired or sold exceeds the applicable threshold (currently €1,502,530) (or you hold 10% or more of the share capital of the Company or such other amount that would entitle you to join the Company’s board of directors), the declaration must be filed within one month of the acquisition or sale, as applicable. In addition, you also must file a declaration of ownership of foreign securities with the Directorate of Foreign Transactions each January.
 
You are also required to electronically declare to the Bank of Spain any security accounts (including brokerage accounts held abroad), as well as the security (including Shares acquired at vesting of Performance Share Units) held in such accounts and any transactions carried out with non-residents if the value of the transactions for all such accounts during the prior year or the balances in such accounts as of December 31 of the prior year exceeds €1,000,000. Unvested rights (e.g., Performance Share Units, etc.) are not considered assets or rights for purposes of this requirement.
 
Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information.  To the extent you hold Shares and/or have bank accounts outside of Spain with a value in excess of €50,000 (for each type of asset) as of December 31, you will be required to report information on such assets on your tax return for such year.  After such Shares and/or accounts are initially reported, the reporting obligation will apply for subsequent years only if the value of any previously reported Shares or accounts increases by more than €20,000 as of each subsequent December 31 or if you sell Shares or cancel bank accounts that were previously reported.
 
Sweden
 
There are no country-specific provisions.
 
Switzerland
 
Securities Law Information. The Performance Share Units are not intended to be publicly offered in or from Switzerland.  Because the offer of Performance Share Units is considered a private offering, it is not subject to registration in Switzerland.  Neither this document nor any other materials relating to the Plan (i) constitutes a prospectus as such term is understood pursuant to article 652a of the Swiss Code of Obligations, and neither this document nor any other materials relating to the Plan (ii) may be publicly distributed nor otherwise made publicly available in Switzerland, or (iii) have been or will be filed with, approved or supervised by any Swiss regulatory authority, including the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA).

Exchange Control Information. You may remit foreign currency (including proceeds from the sale of Shares) into or out of Taiwan up to US$5,000,000 per year without special permission.  If the transaction amount is TWD500,000 or more in a single transaction, you must submit a Foreign Exchange Transaction Form to the remitting bank and provide supporting documentation to the satisfaction of the remitting bank.
 
Addendum-18

 
Thailand
 
Exchange Control Information.  If the proceeds from the sale of Shares or receipt of dividends are equal to or greater than US$50,000 or more in a single transaction, you must repatriate the proceeds to Thailand immediately upon receipt and convert the funds to Thai Baht or deposit the proceeds in a foreign currency deposit account maintained by a bank in Thailand within 360 days of remitting the proceeds to Thailand. In addition you must report the inward remittance to the Bank of Thailand on a foreign exchange transaction form.  If you fail to comply with these obligations, you may be subject to penalties assessed by the Bank of Thailand.  Because exchange control regulations change frequently and without notice, you should consult your personal advisor before selling Shares to ensure compliance with current regulations.  You are responsible for ensuring compliance with all exchange control laws in Thailand, and neither the Company nor any of its subsidiaries will be liable for any fines or penalties resulting from your failure to comply with applicable laws.
 
Turkey
 
Securities Law Information.  Under Turkish law, you are not permitted to sell Shares acquired under the Plan in Turkey.  The Shares are currently traded on the New York Stock Exchange, which is located outside of Turkey, under the ticker symbol “BMY” and the Shares may be sold through this exchange.
 
Exchange Control Information.  In certain circumstances, Turkish residents are permitted to sell shares traded on a non-Turkish stock exchange only through a financial intermediary licensed in Turkey and should be reported to the Turkish Capital Markets Board.  Therefore, you may be required to appoint a Turkish broker to assist with the sale of Shares acquired under the Plan.  You should consult your personal legal advisor before selling any Shares acquired under the Plan to confirm the applicability of this requirement.
 
United Arab Emirates
 
Acknowledgment of Nature of Plan and Performance Share Units.  This provision supplements Section 13 of the Agreement:

You acknowledge that the Performance Share Units and related benefits do not constitute a component of your “wages” for any legal purpose.  Therefore, the Performance Share Units and related benefits will not be included and/or considered for purposes of calculating any and all labor benefits, such as social insurance contributions and/or any other labor-related amounts which may be payable.
 
Securities Law Information.  The Plan is only being offered to qualified employees and is in the nature of providing equity incentives to employees of the Company or its subsidiary or affiliate in the UAE.  Any documents related to the Plan, including the Plan, Plan prospectus and other grant documents (“Plan Documents”), are intended for distribution only to such employees and must not be delivered to, or relied on by, any other person.  Prospective purchasers of the securities offered should conduct their own due diligence on the securities. If you do not understand the contents of the Plan Documents, you should consult an authorized financial adviser.
 
The Emirates Securities and Commodities Authority has no responsibility for reviewing or verifying any Plan Documents nor taken steps to verify the information set out in them, and thus, are not responsible for such documents.
 
Addendum-19

 
The securities to which this summary relates may be illiquid and/or subject to restrictions on their resale. Prospective purchasers of the securities offered should conduct their own due diligence on the securities.
 
United Kingdom
 
Responsibility for Taxes.  This provision supplements Section 9 of the Agreement:
 
Without limitation to Section 4 of the Agreement, you hereby agree that you are liable for all Tax-Related Items and hereby covenant to pay all such Tax-Related Items, as and when requested by the Company or the Employer or by Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (“HMRC”) (or any other tax authority or any other relevant authority).  You also hereby agree to indemnify and keep indemnified the Company and the Employer against any Tax-Related Items that they are required to pay or withhold or have paid or will pay on your behalf to HMRC (or any other tax authority or any other relevant authority).
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you are an executive officer or director of the Company (within the meaning of Section 13(k) of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended), you understand that you may not be able to indemnify the Company or the Employer for the amount of Tax-Related Items not collected from or paid by you because the indemnification could be considered to be a loan.  In this case, any income tax not collected or paid within ninety (90) days of the end of the U.K. tax year in which an event giving rise to the Tax-Related Items occurs may constitute a benefit to you on which additional income tax and employee national insurance contributions (“NICs”) may be payable.  You understand that you 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 and/or the Employer (as appropriate) for the value of employee NICs due on this additional benefit which the Company and/or the Employer may recover from you by any of the means set forth in Section 9 of the Agreement.
 
Venezuela
 
Investment Representation for Performance Share Units.  As a condition of the grant of the Performance Share Units, you acknowledge and agree that any Shares you may acquire upon vesting of the Performance Share Units are acquired as, and intended to be, an investment rather than for the resale of the Shares and conversion of the Shares into foreign currency.
 
Securities Law Information.  The Performance Share Units granted under the Plan and the Shares issued under the Plan are offered as a personal, private, exclusive transaction and are not subject to Venezuelan securities regulations.  This offering does not qualify as a public offering under the laws of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and therefore, it is not required to request the previous authorization of the National Superintendent of Securities.
 
Exchange Control Information.  Exchange control restrictions may limit the ability to vest in the Performance Share Units or to remit funds into Venezuela following the sale of Shares acquired upon vesting of the Performance Share Units.  The Company reserves the right to restrict settlement of the Performance Share Units or to amend or cancel the Performance Share Units at any time in order to comply with applicable exchange control laws in Venezuela.  Any Shares acquired under the Plan are intended to be an investment rather than for the resale and conversion of the shares into foreign currency.  You are responsible for complying with exchange control laws in Venezuela and neither the Company nor the Employer will be liable for any fines or penalties resulting from your failure to comply with applicable laws.  Because exchange control laws and regulations change frequently and without notice, you should consult with your personal legal advisor before accepting the Performance Share Units and before selling any Shares acquired upon vesting of the Performance Share Units to ensure compliance with current regulations.

The Compensation and Management Development Committee of the Board of Directors of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (the “Committee”) has granted to you as of March 10, 2019 (the Award Date”) an Award of MSUs as designated herein subject to the terms, conditions, and restrictions set forth in this Agreement and the Plan. Each MSU shall represent the conditional right to receive, upon settlement of the MSU, one share of Bristol-Myers Squibb Common Stock (“Common Stock”), or, at the discretion of the Company, the cash equivalent thereof, (subject to any tax withholding as described in Section 4). The purpose of such Award is to motivate and retain you as an employee of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, to encourage you to continue to give your best efforts for the Company’s future success, to increase your proprietary interest in the Company, and to further align your compensation with the interests of the Company’s shareholders. Except as may be required by law, you are not required to make any payment (other than payments for taxes pursuant to Section 4 hereof) or provide any consideration other than the rendering of future services to the Company or a subsidiary of the Company.
 
2.          RESTRICTIONS, FORFEITURES, AND SETTLEMENT
 
Except as otherwise provided in this Section 2, MSUs shall be subject to the restrictions and conditions set forth herein during the period from the Award Date until the date such MSU has become vested and non-forfeitable such that there are no longer any MSUs that may become potentially vested and non-forfeitable (the Restricted Period”). Vesting of the MSUs is conditioned upon you remaining continuously employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company from the Award Date until the relevant vesting date, subject to the provisions of this Section 2. In addition, for purposes of vesting, the MSU grant shall be divided into four tranches, each of which shall include 25% of the number of MSUs specified in the Grant Summary.

Assuming satisfaction of such employment conditions, the MSUs shall vest only if the Share Price (as defined below) on the applicable Measurement Date (as defined below) equals at least 60% of the Share Price on the Award Date. If this threshold condition is satisfied, MSUs shall vest to the extent provided in the following schedule:

For purposes of the table set forth above—
 

(A)
“Share Price” shall equal the average of the closing share price of the Company’s Common Stock on the Measurement Date or Award Date, as applicable, and the nine trading days immediately preceding the Measurement Date or Award Date. If there were no trades on the Measurement Date or Award Date, the closing price on the most recent date preceding the Measurement Date or Award Date, as applicable, on which there were trades and the nine trading days immediately preceding that date shall be used.
 

(B)
“Payout Factor” shall be rounded to the nearest hundredth (two places after the decimal), except that if the “Payout Factor” equals more than 2.00, the Payout Factor used in Column E shall be 2.00. Notwithstanding the formula in the table, the Payout Factor for any vesting date that occurs on or after a Change in Control shall equal the Share Price on the date of the Change in Control divided by the Share Price on the Award Date.
 

(C)
“Measurement Date” shall mean the February 28 immediately preceding the vesting date for each tranche.
 
Any MSUs that fail to vest, either because the employment condition is not satisfied or because the Payout Factor for the applicable vesting date is less than 60% shall be forfeited, subject to the special provisions set forth in Sections 2(c)-(g) hereof.
 

(a)
Nontransferability. During the Restricted Period and any further period prior to settlement of your MSUs, you may not sell, transfer, pledge or assign any of the MSUs or your rights relating thereto. If you attempt to assign your rights under this Agreement in violation of the provisions herein, the Company’s obligation to settle MSUs or otherwise make payments shall terminate.

2


(b)
Time of Settlement. MSUs shall be settled promptly upon expiration of the Restricted Period without forfeiture of the MSUs (i.e., upon vesting), but in any event within 60 days of expiration of the Restricted Period, by delivery of one share of Common Stock for each MSU being settled, or, at the discretion of the Company, the cash equivalent thereof; provided, however, that settlement of an MSU shall be subject to Plan Section 11(k), including, if applicable, the six-month delay rule in Plan Section 11(k)(i)(C) to the extent the MSUs are subject to Section 409A, payment is on account of your “separation from service” and you are a “key employee,” both within the meaning of Section 409A; provided further, that no dividend or dividend equivalents will be paid, accrued or accumulated in respect of the period during which settlement was delayed. (Note: This rule may apply to any portion of the MSUs that vest after the time you become Retirement eligible under the Plan, and could apply in other cases as well). Settlement of MSUs which directly or indirectly result from adjustments to MSUs shall occur at the time of settlement of the granted MSUs. Until shares are delivered to you in settlement of MSUs, you shall have none of the rights of a stockholder of the Company with respect to the shares issuable in settlement of the MSUs, including the right to vote the shares and receive actual dividends and other distributions on the underlying shares of Common Stock. Shares of stock issuable in settlement of MSUs shall be delivered to you upon settlement in certificated form or in such other manner as the Company may reasonably determine. At that time, you will have all of the rights of a stockholder of the Company.
 

(c)
Retirement. In the event of your Retirement (as that term is defined in Plan Section 2(x)(i)) at or after your 65th birthday and prior to the end of the Restricted Period, the continuous employment requirement shall be eliminated and you shall vest in and be entitled to settlement of (i.e., the Restricted Period shall expire with respect to) any MSUs that have not previously been vested or forfeited, provided that you have been continuously employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for at least one year following the Award Date and your employment has not been terminated by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for misconduct or other conduct deemed detrimental to the interests of the Company. Any MSU that vests upon your Retirement shall vest based on the Payout Factor determined by substituting for the Measurement Date either (i) the first trading day of the first month following your last day of work; (ii) your last day of work if such date occurs on the first trading day of a month; or (iii) the date of a Change in Control, if a Change in Control has occurred before your Retirement.
 

(d)
Early Retirement; Termination not for Misconduct/Detrimental Conduct. This Section 2(d) shall apply in the event of (1) your Retirement (as that term is defined in Plan Sections 2(x)(ii) or 2(x)(iii)) (A) at or after age 55 with at least 10 years of service or (B) after attaining eligibility for the “Rule of 70” or (2) the termination of your employment by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for reasons other than misconduct or other conduct deemed detrimental to the interests of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company (and you are not eligible for Retirement). If one of the events described in the preceding sentence occurs before the end of the Restricted Period, the continuous employment requirement shall be eliminated and you shall vest in and be entitled to settlement of (i.e., the Restricted Period shall expire with respect to) a proportionate number of the MSUs that would otherwise have vested on the vesting date that next follows the date on which the event occurs, provided that you have been continuously employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for at least one year following the Award Date and your employment has not been terminated by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for misconduct or other conduct deemed detrimental to the interests of the Company. Any MSU that vests upon your early Retirement or termination shall vest based on the Payout Factor determined by substituting for the Measurement Date either (i) the first trading day of the first month following your last day of work; (ii) your last day of work if such date occurs on the first trading day of a month; or (iii) the date of a Change in Control, if a Change in Control has occurred before your early Retirement or termination. If you are not eligible for Retirement (as that term is defined in Plan Sections 2(x)(i) or 2(x)(ii)), and you are employed in the United States or Puerto Rico at the time of your Retirement, you shall be entitled to the pro rata vesting described in this Section 2(d) only if you execute and do not revoke a release in favor of the Company and its predecessors, successors, affiliates, subsidiaries, directors and employees in a form satisfactory to the Company; if you fail to execute or revoke the release, or your release fails to become effective and irrevocable within 60 days of the date your employment terminates, you shall forfeit any MSUs that are unvested as of the date your employment terminates. The formula for determining the proportionate number of your MSUs to become vested and non-forfeitable upon your early Retirement or involuntary termination not for misconduct or other detrimental conduct is available by request from the Office of the Corporate Secretary at 345 Park Avenue, New York, New York 10154.

(e)
Death. In the event of your death during the Restricted Period, the continuous employment requirement shall be eliminated and your estate or legal heirs, as applicable, shall vest in and be entitled to settlement of (i.e., the Restricted Period shall expire with respect to) a proportionate number of the MSUs that would otherwise have vested on the vesting date that next follows the date on which your death occurs, provided that you have been continuously employed by the Company for at least one year following the Award Date. Any MSU that vests upon your death shall vest based on the Payout Factor determined by substituting for the Measurement Date either (i) the first trading day of the first month following your last day of work; (ii) your last day of work if such date occurs on the first trading day of a month; or (iii) the date of a Change in Control, if a Change in Control has occurred before your death. The formula for determining the proportionate number of your MSUs to become vested and non-forfeitable upon your death is available by request from the Office of the Corporate Secretary at 345 Park Avenue, New York, New York 10154. In the event of your death prior to the delivery of shares in settlement of MSUs (not previously forfeited), shares in settlement of your MSUs shall be delivered to your estate or legal heirs, as applicable, upon presentation to the Committee of letters testamentary or other documentation satisfactory to the Committee, and your estate or legal heirs, as applicable, shall succeed to any other rights provided hereunder in the event of your death.
 

(f)
Disability. In the event you become Disabled (as that term is defined below), for the period during which you continue to be deemed to be employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company (i.e., the period during which you receive Disability benefits), you will not be deemed to have terminated employment for purposes of the MSUs. However, no period of continued disability shall continue beyond 29 months for purposes of the MSUs, at which time you will have considered to have separated from service in accordance with applicable laws as more fully provided for herein. Upon the termination of your receipt of Disability benefits, (i) you will not be deemed to have terminated employment if you return to employment status, and (ii) if you do not return to employment status or are considered to have separated from service as noted above, you will be deemed to have terminated employment at the date of cessation of payments to you under all disability pay plans of the Company and its subsidiaries, with such termination treated for purposes of the MSUs as a Retirement, death, or voluntary termination based on your circumstances at the time of such termination. For purposes of this Agreement, “Disability” or “Disabled” shall mean qualifying for and receiving payments under a disability plan of the Company or any subsidiary of the Company or affiliate of the Company either in the United States or in a jurisdiction outside of the United States, and in jurisdictions outside of the United States shall also include qualifying for and receiving payments under a mandatory or universal disability plan or program managed or maintained by the government.
 
4


(g)
Qualifying Termination Following Change in Control. In the event your employment is terminated by reason of a Qualifying Termination during the Protected Period following a Change in Control, the continuous employment requirement shall be eliminated and you shall vest in and be entitled to settlement of (i.e., the Restricted Period shall expire with respect to) any MSUs that have not previously been forfeited. Any MSU that vests following a Qualifying Termination during the applicable Protected Period following a Change in Control shall vest based on the Payout Factor determined by substituting for the Measurement Date the date of the Change in Control.
 

(h)
Other Termination of Employment. In the event of your voluntary termination, or termination by the Company or a subsidiary for misconduct or other conduct deemed by the Company to be detrimental to the interests of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, you shall forfeit all unvested MSUs on the date of termination.
 

(i)
Other Terms.
 

(i)
In the event that you fail promptly to pay or make satisfactory arrangements as to the Tax-Related Items as provided in Section 4, all MSUs subject to restriction shall be forfeited by you and shall be deemed to be reacquired by the Company.
 

(ii)
You may, at any time prior to the expiration of the Restricted Period, waive all rights with respect to all or some of the MSUs by delivering to the Company a written notice of such waiver.
 

(iii)
Termination of employment includes any event if immediately thereafter you are no longer an employee of the Company or any subsidiary of the Company, subject to Section 2(j) hereof. References in this Section 2 to employment by the Company include employment by a subsidiary of the Company. Termination of employment means an event after which you are no longer employed by the Company or any subsidiary of the Company. Such an event could include the disposition of a subsidiary or business unit by the Company or a subsidiary.
 

(iv)
Upon any termination of your employment, any MSUs as to which the Restricted Period has not expired at or before such termination shall be forfeited, subject to Sections 2(c)-(g) hereof. Other provisions of this Agreement notwithstanding, in no event will an MSU that has been forfeited thereafter vest or be settled.

5

 

(v)
In the event of termination of your employment (for any reason whatsoever, whether or not later found to be invalid or in breach of employment laws in the jurisdiction where you are employed or the terms of your employment agreement, if any), unless otherwise provided in this Agreement or determined by the Company, your right to vest in the MSUs under the Plan, if any, will terminate effective as of the date that you are no longer actively providing services and will not be extended by any notice period (e.g., active services would not include any contractual notice period or any period of “garden leave” or similar period mandated under employment laws in the jurisdiction where you are employed or the terms of your employment agreement, if any); the Company shall have the exclusive discretion to determine when you are no longer actively providing services for purposes of your MSUs (including whether you may still be considered to be providing services while on a leave of absence).
 

(vi)
In any case in which you are required to execute a release as a condition to vesting and settlement of the MSUs, the applicable procedure shall be as specified under Plan Section 11(k)(v), except that the deadline for complying with such condition shall be the period provided in this Agreement.
 

(vii)
You agree that the Company may recover any incentive-based compensation received by you under this Agreement if such recovery is pursuant to a clawback or recoupment policy approved by the Committee.
 

(j)
The following events shall not be deemed a termination of employment:
 

(i)
A transfer of you from the Company to a subsidiary of the Company, or vice versa, or from one subsidiary of the Company to another; and
 

(ii)
A leave of absence from which you return to active service for any purpose approved by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company in writing.
 
Any failure to return to active service with the Company or a subsidiary at the end of an approved leave of absence as described herein shall be deemed a voluntary termination of employment effective on the date the approved leave of absence ends, subject to applicable law. During a leave of absence as defined in (ii) or (iii), although you will be considered to have been continuously employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and not to have had a termination of employment under this Section 2, the Committee may specify that such leave period shall not be counted in determining the period of employment for purposes of the vesting of the MSUs. In such case, the vesting dates for unvested MSUs shall be extended by the length of any such leave of absence and any such MSU that vests thereafter shall vest based on the Payout Factor determined by substituting for the Measurement Date the applicable vesting date.
 

(k)
As more fully provided for in the Plan, notwithstanding any provision herein, in any Award or in the Plan to the contrary, the terms of any Award shall be limited to those terms permitted under Code Section 409A including all applicable regulations and administrative guidance thereunder (“Section 409A”), and any terms not permitted under Section 409A shall be automatically modified and limited to the extent necessary to conform with Section 409A, but only to the extent such modification or limitation is permitted under Section 409A.

3.
NON-COMPETITION AND NON-SOLICITATION AGREEMENT AND COMPANY RIGHT TO INJUNCTIVE RELIEF, DAMAGES, RESCISSION, FORFEITURE AND OTHER REMEDIES
 
You acknowledge that the grant of MSUs pursuant to this Agreement is sufficient consideration for this Agreement, including, without limitation, all applicable restrictions imposed on you by this Section 3.
 

(a)
Confidentiality Obligations and Agreement. By accepting this Agreement, you agree and/or reaffirm the terms of all agreements related to treatment of Confidential Information that you signed at the inception of or during your employment, the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference. This includes, but is not limited to, use or disclosure of any BMS Confidential Information, Proprietary Information, or Trade Secrets to third parties. Confidential Information, Proprietary Information, and Trade secrets include, but are not limited to, any information gained in the course of your employment with the Company that is marked as confidential or could reasonably be expected to harm the Company if disclosed to third parties, including without limitation, any information that could reasonably be expected to aid a competitor or potential competitor in making inferences regarding the nature of the Company’s business activities, where such inferences could reasonably be expected to allow such competitor to compete more effectively with the Company. You agree that you will not remove or disclose Company Confidential Information, Proprietary Information or Trade Secrets. Unauthorized removal includes forwarding or downloading confidential information to personal email or other electronic media and/or copying the information to personal unencrypted thumb drives, cloud storage or drop box. Immediately upon termination of your employment for any reason, you will return to the Company all of the Company’s confidential and other business materials that you have or that are in your possession or control and all copies thereof, including all tangible embodiments thereof, whether in hard copy or electronic format and you shall not retain any versions thereof on any personal computer or any other media (e.g., flash drives, thumb drives, external hard drives and the like). In addition, you will thoroughly search personal electronic devices, drives, cloud-based storage, email, cell phones, and social media to ensure that all Company information has been deleted. In the event that you comingle personal and Company confidential information on these devices or storage media, you hereby consent to the removal and permanent deletion of all information on these devices and media. Nothing in this paragraph or Agreement limits or prohibits your right to report potential violations of law, rules, or regulations to, or communicate with, cooperate with, testify before, or otherwise assist in an investigation or proceeding by, any government agency or entity, or engage in any other conduct that is required or protected by law or regulation, and you are not required to obtain the prior authorization of the Company to do so and are not required to notify the Company that you have done so.
 

(b)
Inventions. To the extent permitted by local law, you agree and/or reaffirm the terms of all agreements related to inventions that you signed at the inception of or during your employment, and agree to promptly disclose and assign to the Company all of your interest in any and all inventions, discoveries, improvements and business or marketing concepts related to the current or contemplated business or activities of the Company, and which are conceived or made by you, either alone or in conjunction with others, at any time or place during the period you are employed by the Company. Upon request of the Company, including after your termination, you agree to execute, at the Company’s expense, any and all applications, assignments, or other documents which the Company shall determine necessary to apply for and obtain letters patent to protect the Company’s interest in such inventions, discoveries, and improvements and to cooperate in good faith in any legal proceedings to protect the Company’s intellectual property.
7


(c)
Non-Competition, Non-Solicitation and Related Covenants. By accepting this Agreement, you agree to the restrictive covenants outlined in this section unless expressly prohibited by local law or as follows: The post-termination non-compete restrictions outlined in subparagraphs (i), (ii) and (v) of this Section 3(c) do not apply to overtime eligible employees, to lawyers working in the Company law department or to employees who are, at the time of termination from employment by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, assigned to work for the Company or a subsidiary of the Company resident full-time in the States of California or North Dakota, except that should said employee accept employment outside of California or North Dakota, all restrictions in Section 3(c), including, but not limited to, those pertaining to post-termination activities, shall be fully enforceable. There are no exemptions for any Award recipients (including employee residents of the States of California and North Dakota) regarding non-compete provisions while employed at the Company or from subparagraphs (iii) and (iv) of this Section 3(c) during the entire Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period. If you are assigned to work for the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and resident full-time in Massachusetts or are residing primarily in Massachusetts as of the date of this Agreement, Addendum B to this Agreement shall apply in lieu of Section 3(c), 3(d) and 3(e) of this Agreement.
 
Given the extent and nature of the confidential information that you have obtained or will obtain during the course of your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, it would be inevitable or, at the least, substantially probable that such confidential information would be disclosed or utilized by you should you obtain employment from, or otherwise become associated with, an entity or person that is engaged in a business or enterprise that directly competes with the Company. Even if not inevitable, it would be impossible or impracticable for the Company to monitor your strict compliance with your confidentiality obligations. Consequently, you agree that you will not, directly or indirectly:
 

(i)
during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period (as defined below), own or have any financial interest in a Competitive Business (as defined below), except that nothing in this clause shall prevent you from owning one per cent or less of the outstanding securities of any entity whose securities are traded on a U.S. national securities exchange (including NASDAQ) or an equivalent foreign exchange;


(ii)
during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, whether or not for compensation, either on your own behalf or as an employee, officer, agent, consultant, director, owner, partner, joint venturer, shareholder, investor, or in any other capacity, be actively connected with a Competitive Business or otherwise advise or assist a Competitive Business with regard to any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business that competes with any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business with which you worked or about which you became familiar as a result of your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, after your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company terminates for any reason, you may be affiliated with a Competitive Business provided that your affiliation does not involve any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business, that competes with any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business with which you were involved within the last twelve months of your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, including any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business which the Company is developing and of which you had knowledge, and you and the Competing Business provide the Company written assurances of this fact prior to your commencing such affiliation;
8


(iii)
[with respect to executives], during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, employ, solicit for employment, solicit, induce, encourage, or participate in soliciting, inducing or encouraging any Company employee who is employed by the Company or who was employed by the Company within the twelve months preceding the termination of your employment with the Company for any reason, to terminate or reduce his or her or its relationship with the Company or any of its affiliates, successors or assigns (the Related Parties”); This restriction includes, but is not limited to, participation in any parts of the staffing and hiring processes involving a candidate regardless of the means by which the new employer became aware of the candidate;


(iv)
during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, solicit, induce, encourage, or appropriate or attempt to solicit, divert or appropriate, by use of Confidential Information or otherwise, any existing or prospective customer, vendor or supplier of the Company or any Related Parties to terminate, cancel or otherwise reduce its relationship with the Company or any Related Parties;


(v)
during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, contact, call upon or solicit any existing customer of the Company or its Related Parties, or prospective customer of the Company or its Related Parties, that you became aware of or was introduced to in the course of your duties for the Company or its Related Parties, or otherwise divert or take away from the Company or its Related Parties the business of any current or prospective customer of the Company or its Related Parties; or


(vi)
during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, engage in any activity that is harmful to the interests of the Company or its Related Parties, including, without limitation, any conduct during the term of your employment that violates the Company’s Standards of Business Conduct and Ethics, securities trading policy and other policies.


(d)
Rescission, Forfeiture and Other Remedies. If the Company determines that you have violated any applicable provisions of Section 3(c) above during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, in addition to injunctive relief and damages, you agree and covenant that:
 

(i)
any unvested portion of the MSUs shall be immediately rescinded;


(ii)
you shall automatically forfeit any rights you may have with respect to the MSUs as of the date of such determination;


(iii)
if any part of the MSUs vests within the twelve-month period immediately preceding a violation of Section 3(c) above (or following the date of any such violation), upon the Company’s demand, you shall immediately deliver to it a certificate or certificates for shares of Common Stock that you acquired upon settlement of such MSUs (or an equivalent number of other shares); and
9


(iv)
the foregoing remedies set forth in this Section 3(d) shall not be the Company’s exclusive remedies. The Company reserves all other rights and remedies available to it at law or in equity.


(e)
Definitions. For purposes of this Agreement, the following definitions shall apply:
 

(i)
“Competitive Business” means any business that is engaged in or is about to become engaged in the development, production or sale of any product, investigational compound, technology, process, service or line of business concerning the treatment of any disease, which product, investigational compound, technology, process, service or line of business resembles or competes with any product, investigational compound, technology, process, service or line of business that was sold by, or in development at, the Company or a subsidiary of the Company during your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company.


(ii)
Because of the global nature of the Company’s business, it is agreed that the restrictions set forth above shall apply in the “Restricted Area,” defined as including without limitation the continent, country and the geographic regions where you worked in and were responsible for while employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, and any other geographic area (country, province, state, city or other political subdivision) in which the Company or a subsidiary of the Company is engaged in business and/or is otherwise selling products or services at the time you ceased working for the Company or a subsidiary of the Company;
 

 (iii)
The “Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period” shall be the period during which Employee is employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and twelve (12) months after the end of Employee’s term of employment with and/or work for the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for any reason, (e.g., restriction applies regardless of the reason for termination and includes voluntary and involuntary termination) (hereinafter “Termination Date”);


(A)
provided, in the event that the Company or a subsidiary of the Company files an action to enforce rights arising out of this Agreement, the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period shall be extended for all periods of time in which you are determined by the Court or other authority to have been in violation of the provisions of Section 3(c).


(f)
Severability. You acknowledge and agree that the period, scope and geographic areas of restriction imposed upon you by this Section 3 are fair and reasonable and are reasonably required for the protection of the Company. In case any one or more of the provisions contained in this Agreement should be held invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions will not in any way be affected or impaired and this Agreement shall nevertheless continue to be valid and enforceable as though the invalid provisions were not part of this Agreement. If the final judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction or other authority declares that any term or provision hereof is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the parties agree that the court making such determination shall have the power to reduce the scope, duration, area or applicability of the term or provision, to delete specific words or phrases, or to replace any invalid, illegal or unenforceable term or provision with a term or provision that is valid, legal and enforceable to the maximum extent permissible under law and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid, illegal or unenforceable term or provision. You acknowledge and agree that your covenants under this Agreement are ancillary to your employment relationship with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, but shall be independent of any other contractual relationship between you and the Company or a subsidiary of the Company. Consequently, the existence of any claim or cause of action that you may have against the Company or a subsidiary of the Company shall not constitute a defense to the enforcement of this Agreement by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, nor an excuse for noncompliance with this Agreement.
10


(g)
Additional Remedies. You acknowledge and agree that any violation by you of this paragraph will cause irreparable harm to the Company and its Related Parties and the Company cannot be adequately compensated for such violation by damages. Accordingly, if you violate or threaten to violate this Agreement, then, in addition to any other rights or remedies that the Company may have in law or in equity, the Company shall be entitled, without the posting of a bond or other security, to obtain an injunction to stop or prevent such violation, including but not limited to obtaining a temporary or preliminary injunction from a Delaware court pursuant to Section 1(a) of the Mutual Arbitration Agreement and Section 14 of this Agreement. You further agree that if the Company incurs legal fees or costs in enforcing this Agreement, you will reimburse the Company for such fees and costs.
 

(h)
Binding Obligations. These obligations shall be binding both upon you, your assigns, executors, administrators and legal representatives. At the inception of or during the course of your employment, you may have executed agreements that contain similar terms. Those agreements remain in full force and effect. In the event that there is a conflict between the terms of those agreements and this Agreement, this Agreement will control.
 

(i)
Enforcement. The Company retains discretion regarding whether or not to enforce the terms of the covenants contained in this Section 3 and its decision not to do so in your instance or anyone’s case shall not be considered a waiver of the Company’s right to do so.
 

(j)
Duty to Notify the Company and Third Parties. During your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and for a period of 12 months after your termination of employment from the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, you shall communicate your obligations under this Agreement to each subsequent employer. In addition, at least ten (10) business days prior to commencing employment with a new employer, you shall advise the Company of the name and address of your intended future employer, the title of the position that you have been offered with that subsequent employer, the product and/or investigational compound responsibilities that you will have with the subsequent employer and such information as the Company may request that will assist the Company in evaluating whether such prospective employment would violate this Agreement (except that you need not provide any information that would constitute a trade secret or confidential information of any other party). If you are actively employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company at the time that you accept a position with a new employer, you are required to notify the Company and provide this information immediately upon your acceptance of the position with the new employer and the Company may choose, in its sole discretion, to limit your duties in your position with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and restrict your access to Company premises, systems, products, information and employees during the notice period. You understand and agree that the notice requirement set forth in this Section 3(j) is reasonable and necessary to permit the Company to determine whether, in its view, your proposed new position could lead to a violation of this Agreement. Upon receiving information provided concerning your intended future employment, the Company will evaluate that information and attempt in good faith to engage you in a discussion regarding the applicability and effect of the covenants in this Agreement upon that employment prior to the Company commencing legal action to enforce those covenants. You also authorize the Company to notify third parties, including without limitation, customers and actual or potential employers, of the terms of this Agreement and your obligations hereunder upon your separation from the Company group or your separation from employment with any subsequent employer during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, by providing a copy of this Agreement or otherwise.

4.          RESPONSIBILITY FOR TAXES
 
You acknowledge that, regardless of any action taken by the Company, any subsidiary or affiliate of the Company, including your employer (“Employer”), the ultimate liability for all income tax (including federal, state, local and non-U.S. taxes), social security, payroll tax, fringe benefits tax, payment on account or other tax-related items related to your participation in the Plan and legally applicable to you or deemed by the Company or the Employer to be an appropriate charge to you even if legally applicable to the Company or the Employer (“Tax-Related Items”) is and remains your responsibility and may exceed the amount actually withheld by the Company or the Employer, if any. You further acknowledge that the Company, any subsidiary or affiliate and/or the Employer: (a) make no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related Items in connection with any aspect of the MSUs, including the grant of the MSUs, the vesting of MSUs, the conversion of the MSUs into shares of Common Stock or the receipt of an equivalent cash payment, the subsequent sale of any shares of Common Stock acquired at settlement and the receipt of any dividends; and, (b) do not commit to structure the terms of the grant or any aspect of the MSUs to reduce or eliminate your liability for Tax-Related Items or achieve any particular tax result. Further, if you are subject to Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction, you acknowledge 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 the relevant taxable event, you agree to make adequate arrangements satisfactory to the Company or the Employer to satisfy all Tax-Related Items. In this regard, by your acceptance of the MSUs, you authorize the Company and/or the Employer, or their respective agents, at their discretion, to satisfy any applicable withholding obligations with regard to all Tax-Related Items by one or a combination of the following:
 

(a)
withholding from your wages or other cash compensation paid to you by the Company and/or the Employer; or
 

(b)
withholding from proceeds of the sale of shares of Common Stock acquired upon settlement of the MSUs either through a voluntary sale or through a mandatory sale arranged by the Company (on your behalf pursuant to this authorization without further consent); or
 

(c)
withholding in shares of Common Stock to be issued upon settlement of the MSUs;
12

provided, however, if you are a Section 16 officer of the Company under the Exchange Act, then the Company will withhold shares of Common Stock upon the relevant taxable or tax withholding event, as applicable, unless the use of such withholding method is problematic under applicable tax or securities law or has materially adverse accounting consequences, in which case, the obligation for Tax-Related Items may be satisfied by one or a combination of methods (a) and (b) above.
 
The Company may withhold or account for Tax-Related Items by considering applicable minimum statutory withholding rates or other applicable withholding rates, including maximum rates applicable in your jurisdiction(s), in which case, you may receive a refund of any over-withheld amount in cash and will have no entitlement to the Common Stock equivalent. If the obligation for Tax-Related Items is satisfied by withholding in shares of Common Stock, for tax purposes, you are deemed to have been issued the full number of shares of Common Stock subject to the vested MSUs, notwithstanding that a number of the shares of Common Stock are held back solely for the purpose of paying the Tax-Related Items.
 
Finally, you agree to pay to the Company or the Employer, including through withholding from your wages or other cash compensation paid to you by the Company and/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 your participation in the Plan that cannot be satisfied by the means previously described. The Company may refuse to issue or deliver the shares or the proceeds of the sale of shares of Common Stock, if you fail to comply with your obligations in connection with the Tax-Related Items.
 
Notwithstanding anything in this Section 4 to the contrary, to avoid a prohibited acceleration under Section 409A, if shares of Common Stock subject to MSUs will be sold on your behalf (or withheld) to satisfy any Tax-Related Items arising prior to the date of settlement of the MSUs, then to the extent that any portion of the MSUs that is considered nonqualified deferred compensation subject to Section 409A, then the number of such shares sold on your behalf (or withheld) shall not exceed the number of shares that equals the liability for Tax-Related Items with respect to such shares.
 
5.          DIVIDENDS AND ADJUSTMENTS
 

(a)
Dividends or dividend equivalents are not paid, accrued or accumulated on MSUs during the Restricted Period, except as provided in Section 5(b).
 

(b)
The number of your MSUs and/or other related terms shall be appropriately adjusted, in order to prevent dilution or enlargement of your rights with respect to MSUs, to reflect any changes in the outstanding shares of Common Stock resulting from any event referred to in Plan Section 11(c) or any other “equity restructuring” as defined in FASB ASC Topic 718.
 
6.          EFFECT ON OTHER BENEFITS
 
In no event shall the value, at any time, of the MSUs or any other payment under this Agreement be included as compensation or earnings for purposes of any other compensation, retirement, or benefit plan offered to employees of the Company or any subsidiary of the Company unless otherwise specifically provided for in such plan. The MSUs and the underlying shares of Common Stock (or their cash equivalent), and the income and value of the same, are not part of normal or expected compensation or salary for any purpose including, but not limited to, calculation of any severance, resignation, termination, redundancy or end-of-service payments, holiday pay, bonuses, long-service awards, leave-related payments, pension or retirement benefits, or similar mandatory payments.

(i)
Unless otherwise provided in the Plan or by the Company in its discretion, the MSUs and the benefits evidenced by this Agreement do not create any entitlement to have the MSUs or any such benefits transferred to, or assumed by, another company nor to be exchanged, cashed out or substituted for, in connection with any corporate transaction affecting the shares of the Company; and

For the Company
     
   
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company
     
  By
 

I have read this Agreement in its entirety. I understand that this Award has been granted to provide a means for me to acquire and/or expand an ownership position in Bristol-Myers Squibb Company. I acknowledge and agree that sales of shares will be subject to the Company’s policies regulating trading by employees. In accepting this Award, I hereby agree that Fidelity, or such other vendor as the Company may choose to administer the Plan, may provide the Company with any and all account information for the administration of this Award.

I hereby agree to all the terms, restrictions and conditions set forth in the Agreement, including, but not limited to post-employment covenants described therein.

Addendum A

BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB COMPANY
SPECIAL PROVISIONS FOR MSUs IN CERTAIN COUNTRIES

Unless otherwise provided below, capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the same meanings assigned to them in the Plan and the Agreement. This Addendum includes special country-specific terms that apply if you are residing and/or working in one of the countries listed below. This Addendum A is part of the Agreement.
 
This Addendum A also includes information of which you should be aware with respect to your participation in the Plan. For example, certain individual exchange control reporting requirements may apply upon vesting of the MSUs and/or sale of Common Stock. The information is based on the securities, exchange control and other laws in effect in the respective countries as of January 2019 and is provided for informational purposes. Such laws are often complex and change frequently, and results may be different based on the particular facts and circumstances. As a result, the Company strongly recommends that you do not rely on the information noted herein as the only source of information relating to the consequences of your participation in the Plan because the information may be out of date at the time your MSUs vest or are settled, or you sell shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan.
 
In addition, the information is general in nature and may not apply to your particular situation, and the Company is not in a position to assure you of any particular result. Accordingly, you should seek appropriate professional advice as to how the relevant laws in your country may apply to your situation.
 
Finally, if you are a citizen or resident of a country other than the one in which you currently are residing and/or working, transfer employment after the MSUs are granted to you, or are considered a resident of another country for local law purposes, the information contained herein for the country you are residing and/or working in at the time of grant may not be applicable to you, and the Company shall, in its discretion, determine to what extent the terms and conditions contained herein shall be applicable to you. If you transfer residency and/or employment to another country or are considered a resident of another country listed in this Addendum A after the MSUs are granted to you, the terms and/or information contained for that new country (rather than the original grant country) may be applicable to you.
 
All Countries
 
Retirement. The following provision supplements Sections 2(c) and 2(d) of the Agreement:
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company receives a legal opinion that there has been a legal judgment and/or legal development in your jurisdiction that likely would result in the favorable treatment that applies to the MSUs in the event of your Retirement being deemed unlawful and/or discriminatory, the provisions of Sections 2(c) and (d) regarding the treatment of the MSUs in the event of your Retirement shall not be applicable to you.
 
All Non-European Union/Non-European Economic Area Countries

Data Privacy Consent.

By accepting the Award, you explicitly and unambiguously consent to the collection, use and transfer, in electronic or other form, of your personal data as described in the Agreement by and among, as applicable, the Employer, the Company and its other subsidiaries and affiliates for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing your participation in the Plan.
19

You understand that the Company, the Employer and other subsidiaries and affiliates of the Company may hold certain personal information about you, including, but not limited to, your name, home address and telephone number, email address, date of birth, employee ID, social security number, passport or other identification number (e.g., resident registration number), tax code, hire date, termination date, termination code, division name, division code, region name, salary grade, nationality, job title, any shares of stock or directorships held in the Company, details of all MSUs or any other entitlement to shares awarded, canceled, vested, unvested or outstanding in your favor (“Data”), for the purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Plan.

You understand that Data will be transferred to Fidelity Stock Plan Services and certain of its affiliates (“Fidelity”), or such other stock plan service provider as may be selected by the Company in the future, which assist in the implementation, administration and management of the Plan. You understand that the recipients of the Data may be located in the United States or elsewhere, and that the recipient’s country (e.g. the United States) may have different data privacy laws and protections than your country. You understand that if you reside outside the United States, you may request a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of the Data by contacting your local human resources representative. You authorize the Company, Fidelity and 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 purpose of implementing, administering and managing your participation in the Plan, including any requisite transfer of such Data as may be required to a broker, escrow agent or other third party with whom the shares of Common Stock received upon vesting of the MSUs may be deposited. You understand that Data will be held only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage your participation in the Plan. You understand that if you reside outside the United States, you may, at any time, view Data, request 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 your local human resources representative. Further, you understand that you are providing the consents herein on a purely voluntary basis. If you do not consent, or if you later seek to revoke your consent, your employment status or service with the Employer will not be affected; the only consequence of refusing or withdrawing your consent is that the Company would not be able to grant MSUs or other equity awards to you or administer or maintain such awards. Therefore, you understand that refusing or withdrawing your consent may affect your ability to participate in the Plan. For more information on the consequences of your refusal to consent or withdrawal of consent, you understand that you may contact your local human resources representative.

Upon request of the Company or the Employer, you agree to provide a separate executed data privacy consent form (or any other agreements or consents that may be required by the Company and/or the Employer) that the Company and/or the Employer may deem necessary to obtain from you for the purpose of administering your participation in the Plan in compliance with the data privacy laws in your country, either now or in the future. You understand and agree that you will not be able to participate in the Plan if you fail to provide any such consent or agreement requested by the Company and/or the Employer.

Exchange Control Information. Certain restrictions and requirements may apply if and when you transfer proceeds from the sale of shares of Common Stock or any cash dividends paid with respect to such shares into Argentina.
 
Exchange control regulations in Argentina are subject to change.

Notwithstanding anything else in the Agreement, you will not be entitled to and shall not claim any benefit under the Plan if the provision of such benefit would give rise to a breach of Part 2D.2 of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth), any other provision of that Act, or any other applicable statute, rule or regulation which limits or restricts the giving of such benefits. Further, the Employer is under no obligation to seek or obtain the approval of its shareholders in general meeting for the purpose of overcoming any such limitation or restriction.
 
Australian Offer Document. The offer of MSUs is intended to comply with the provisions of the Corporations Act 2001, ASIC Regulatory Guide 49 and ASIC Class Order CO 14/1000.

21

Austria

Exchange Control Information. If you hold shares of Common Stock under the Plan outside of Austria (even if you hold them outside of Austria at a branch of an Austrian bank) or cash (including proceeds from the sale of Common Stock), you may be required to submit a report to the Austrian National Bank as follows: (i) on a quarterly basis if the value of the Common Stock as of any given quarter meets or exceeds €30,000,000; and (ii) on an annual basis if the value of the Common Stock as of December 31 meets or exceeds €5,000,000. The deadline to file the quarterly report is the 15th day of the month following the end of the respective quarter. The deadline to file the annual report is January 31 of the following year.

In a separate report, you will be required to provide the National Bank of Belgium with certain details regarding such foreign accounts (including the account number, bank name and country in which any such account was opened). The forms to complete this report are available on the website of the National Bank of Belgium.
 
Stock Exchange Tax Information. A stock exchange tax applies to transactions executed by a Belgian resident through a non-Belgian financial intermediary, such as a U.S. broker.

You should consult with your tax or financial advisor for additional details on your obligations with respect to the stock exchange tax.
 
Brokerage Account Tax Information.

Termination of Employment. This provision replaces the second paragraph of Section 2(i)(v) of the Agreement:
 
In the event of termination of your employment (for any reason whatsoever, whether or not later found to be invalid or in breach of employment laws in the jurisdiction where you are employed or the terms of your employment agreement, if any), unless otherwise provided in this Agreement or the Plan, your right to vest in the MSUs, if any, will terminate effective as of the date that is the earlier of (1) the date upon which your employment with the Company or any of its subsidiaries is terminated; (2) the date you are no longer actively employed by or providing services to the Company or any of its subsidiaries; or (3) the date you receive written notice of termination of employment, regardless of any notice period or period of pay in lieu of such notice required under applicable laws (including, but not limited to statutory law, regulatory law and/or common law); the Committee shall have the exclusive discretion to determine when you are no longer employed or actively providing services for purposes of the MSUs (including whether you may still be considered employed or actively providing services while on a leave of absence).

Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information. You may be required to report your foreign specified property on Form T1135 (Foreign Income Verification Statement) if the total cost of your foreign specified property exceeds C$100,000 at any time in the year. Foreign property includes cash held outside of Canada and shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan, and rights to receive shares of Common Stock (e.g., MSUs). Thus, MSUs must be reported - generally at a nil cost - if the C$100,000 cost threshold is exceeded because of other foreign specified property. The Form T1135 must be filed by April 30 of the following year. When shares of Common Stock are acquired, their cost generally is the adjusted cost base (“ACB”) of the shares of Common Stock. The ACB would ordinarily equal the fair market value of the shares of Common Stock at the time of acquisition, but if you own other shares of Common Stock of the same company, this ACB may have to be averaged with the ACB of the other shares of Common Stock. You should consult with your personal tax advisor to determine your reporting requirements.
 
The following provision applies if you are resident in Quebec:

You further authorize the Company and its subsidiaries to disclose and discuss the Plan with their advisors. You further authorize the Company and its subsidiaries to record such information and to keep such information in your employee file.
 
Chile
 
Securities Law Information. The offer of the MSUs constitutes a private offering in Chile effective as of the Award Date. The offer of MSUs is made subject to general ruling n° 336 of the Commission for the Financial Market (Comisión para el Mercado Financiero, “CMF”). The offer refers to securities not registered at the securities registry or at the foreign securities registry of the CMF, and, therefore, such securities are not subject to oversight of the CMF. Given the MSUs are not registered in Chile, the Company is not required to provide information about the MSUs or shares of Common Stock in Chile. Unless the MSUs and/or the shares of Common Stock are registered with the CMF, a public offering of such securities cannot be made in Chile.
 
Esta oferta de Unidades de Acciones Restringidas (“MSU”) constituye una oferta privada de valores en Chile y se inicia en la Fecha de la Concesión. Esta oferta de MSU se acoge a las disposiciones de la Norma de Carácter General Nº 336 (“NCG 336”) de la Comisión para el Mercado Financiero (“CMF”). Esta oferta versa sobre valores no inscritos en el Registro de Valores o en el Registro de Valores Extranjeros que lleva la CMF, por lo que tales valores no están sujetos a la fiscalización de ésta. Por tratarse los MSU de valores no registrados en Chile, no existe obligación por parte de la Compañía de entregar en Chile información pública respecto de los MSU or sus Acciones. Estos valores no podrán ser objeto de oferta pública en Chile mientras no sean inscritos en el Registro de Valores correspondiente.
 
Exchange Control Information. You are responsible for complying with foreign exchange requirements in Chile. You should consult with your personal legal advisor regarding any applicable exchange control obligations prior to vesting in the MSUs or receiving proceeds from the sale of shares of Common Stock acquired at vesting or cash dividends.
 
You are not required to repatriate funds obtained from the sale of shares of Common Stock or the receipt of any dividends. However, if you decide to repatriate such funds, you must do so through the Formal Exchange Market if the amount of funds exceeds US$10,000. In such case, you must report the payment to a commercial bank or registered foreign exchange office receiving the funds. If your aggregate investments held outside of Chile exceed US$5,000,000 (including shares of Common Stock and any cash proceeds obtained under the Plan) in the relevant calendar year, you must report the investments quarterly to the Central Bank. Annex 3.1 of Chapter XII of the Foreign Exchange Regulations must be used to file this report. Please note that exchange control regulations in Chile are subject to change.
24

Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information. The Chilean Internal Revenue Service (“CIRS”) requires all taxpayers to provide information annually regarding: (i) the taxes paid abroad which they will use as a credit against Chilean income taxes, and (ii) the results of foreign investments, which must be submitted electronically through the CIRS website at www.sii.cl in accordance with the applicable deadlines.

You should consult with your personal legal advisor regarding how to register with the CIRS as you may be ineligible to receive certain foreign tax credits if you fail to meet the applicable reporting requirements. Exchange control and tax reporting requirements in Chile are subject to change, and you should consult with your personal legal and tax advisor regarding any reporting obligations that you may have in connection with the MSUs.
 
China
 
The following provisions apply if you are subject to the exchange control regulations in China, as determined by the Company in its sole discretion:
 
Sales of Shares of Common Stock. To comply with exchange control regulations in China, you agree that the Company is authorized to force the sale of shares of Common Stock to be issued to you upon vesting and settlement of the MSUs at any time (including immediately upon vesting or after termination of your employment, as described below), and you expressly authorize the Company’s designated broker to complete the sale of such shares of Common Stock. You agree to sign any agreements, forms and/or consents that may be reasonably requested by the Company (or the designated broker) to effectuate the sale of the shares of Common Stock and shall otherwise cooperate with the Company with respect to such matters, provided that you shall not be permitted to exercise any influence over how, when or whether the sales occur. You acknowledge that the Company’s designated broker is under no obligation to arrange for the sale of the shares of Common Stock at any particular price.
 
Upon the sale of the shares of Common Stock, the Company agrees to pay the cash proceeds from the sale of Common Stock (less any applicable Tax-Related Items, brokerage fees or commissions) to you in accordance with applicable exchange control laws and regulations including, but not limited to, the restrictions set forth in this Addendum for China below under “Exchange Control Information.” Due to fluctuations in the Common Stock price and/or applicable exchange rates between the vesting date and (if later) the date on which the shares of Common Stock are sold, the amount of proceeds realized upon sale may be more or less than the market value of the shares of Common Stock on the vesting date (which typically is the amount relevant to determining your Tax-Related Items liability). You understand and agree that the Company is not responsible for the amount of any loss you may incur and that the Company assumes no liability for any fluctuations in the Common Stock price and/or any applicable exchange rate.
25

Treatment of Shares of Common Stock and MSUs Upon Termination of Employment. Due to exchange control regulations in China, you understand and agree that any shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan and held by you in your brokerage account must be sold no later than the last business day of the month following the month of your termination of employment, or within such other period as determined by the Company or required by the China State Administration of Foreign Exchange (“SAFE”) (the “Mandatory Sale Date”). This includes any portion of shares of Common Stock that vest upon your termination of employment. For example, if your termination of employment occurs on March 14, 2019, then the Mandatory Sale Date will be April 30, 2019. You understand that any shares of Common Stock held by you that have not been sold by the Mandatory Sale Date will automatically be sold by the Company’s designated broker at the Company’s direction (on your behalf pursuant to this authorization without further consent), as described under “Sales of Shares of Common Stock” above.
 
If all or a portion of your MSUs become distributable upon your termination of employment or at some time following your termination of employment, that portion will vest and become distributable immediately upon termination of your employment. Any shares of Common Stock distributed to you according to this paragraph must be sold by the Mandatory Sale Date or will be sold by the Company’s designated broker at the Company’s direction (on your behalf pursuant to this authorization without further consent), as described under “Sales of Shares of Common Stock” above. You will not continue to vest in MSUs or be entitled to any portion of MSUs after your termination of employment.

Exchange Control Information. You understand and agree that, to facilitate compliance with exchange control requirements, you are required to hold any shares of Common Stock to be issued to you upon vesting and settlement of the MSUs in the account that has been established for you with the Company’s designated broker and you acknowledge that you are prohibited from transferring any such shares of Common Stock to another brokerage account. In addition, you are required to immediately repatriate to China the cash proceeds from the sale of the shares of Common Stock issued upon vesting and settlement of the MSUs and any dividends paid on such shares of Common Stock. You further understand that, such repatriation of the cash proceeds will be effectuated through a special exchange control account established by the Company or its subsidiaries, and you hereby consent and agree that the proceeds may be transferred to such special account prior to being delivered to you. The Company may deliver the proceeds to you in U.S. dollars or local currency at the Company’s discretion. If the proceeds are paid in U.S. dollars, you understand that you will be required to set up a U.S. dollar bank account in China so that the proceeds may be deposited into this account. If the proceeds are converted to local currency, there may be delays in delivering the proceeds to you and due to fluctuations in the Common Stock trading price and/or the U.S. dollar/PRC exchange rate between the sale/payment date and (if later) when the proceeds can be converted into local currency, the proceeds that you receive may be more or less than the market value of the Common Stock on the sale/payment date (which is the amount relevant to determining your tax liability). You agree to bear the risk of any currency fluctuation between the sale/payment date and the date of conversion of the proceeds into local currency.
 
You further agree to comply with any other requirements that may be imposed by the Company in the future to facilitate compliance with exchange control requirements in China.
 
Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information. PRC residents are required to report to SAFE details of their foreign financial assets and liabilities, as well as details of any economic transactions conducted with non-PRC residents, either directly or through financial institutions. Under these rules, you may be subject to reporting obligations for the Common Stock or equity awards, including MSUs acquired under the Plan and Plan-related transactions. It is your responsibility to comply with this reporting obligation and you should consult your personal advisor in this regard.

Colombia

Labor Law Policy and Acknowledgement. By accepting your Award of MSUs, you expressly acknowledge that, pursuant to Article 15 of Law 50/1990 (Article 128 of the Colombian Labor Code), the MSUs and any payments you receive pursuant to the MSUs are wholly discretionary and are a benefit of an extraordinary nature that do not exclusively depend on your performance. Accordingly, the Plan, the MSUs and related benefits do not constitute a component of “salary” for any legal purpose, including for purposes of calculating any and all labor benefits, such as fringe benefits, vacation pay, termination or other indemnities, payroll taxes, social insurance contributions, or any other outstanding employment-related amounts, subject to the limitations provided in Law 1393/2010.
 
Exchange Control Information.

If applicable, you will be required to register your investment in shares of Common Stock with the Central Bank, regardless of the value of the investment. You should obtain proper legal advice to ensure compliance with applicable Colombian regulations.
 
Securities Law Information. The shares of Common Stock are not and will not be registered with the Colombian registry of publicly traded securities (Registro Nacional de Valores y Emisores) and therefore the shares of Common Stock may not be offered to the public in Colombia.

It is your responsibility to comply with any applicable Czech exchange control laws.

Further, if you open a brokerage account (or a bank account) with a U.S. bank, the brokerage account (or bank account, as applicable) will be treated as a deposit account if cash can be held in the account. However, you are no longer required to file a Form K (Erklaering K) with the Danish Tax Administration. The Form V and Form K have been replaced by the automatic exchange of information regarding bank and brokerage accounts. You should consult with your personal advisor to ensure compliance with any applicable obligations.

You understand that if you reside outside the United States, you may request a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of the Data by contacting the International Compensation and Benefits Group. You authorize the Company, Fidelity and 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 purpose of implementing, administering and managing your participation in the Plan, including any requisite transfer of such Data as may be required to a broker, escrow agent or other third party with whom the shares of Common Stock received upon vesting of the MSUs may be deposited. You understand that Data will be held only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage your participation in the Plan.
 
You understand that if you reside outside the United States, you 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 and without cost, by contacting in writing the International Compensation and Benefits Group. Further, you understand that you are providing the consents herein on a purely voluntary basis. If you do not consent, or if you later seek to revoke your consent, your employment status or service with the Employer will not be affected; the only consequence of refusing or withdrawing your consent is that the Company would not be able to grant you MSUs or other equity awards or administer or maintain such awards. Therefore, you understand that refusing or withdrawing your consent may affect your ability to participate in the Plan. For more information on the consequences of your refusal to consent or withdrawal of consent, you understand that you may contact the International Compensation and Benefits Group.

(“SFA”).
 
Securities Law Information. The grant of MSUs is being made in reliance of section 273(1)(f) of the SFA for which it is exempt from the prospectus and registration requirements under the SFA and is not made to you with a view to the MSUs being subsequently offered for sale to any other party. The Plan has not been lodged or registered as a prospectus with the Monetary Authority of Singapore.

South Africa
 
Responsibility for Taxes. The following provision supplements Section 4 of this Agreement:
 
You are required to immediately notify the Employer of the amount of any gain realized at vesting of the MSUs. If you fail to advise the Employer of such gain, you may be liable for a fine.
 
Exchange Control Information. You are solely responsible for complying with applicable South African exchange control regulations, and neither the Company nor the Employer will be liable for any fines or penalties resulting from failure to comply with applicable laws. In particular, if you are a resident for exchange control purposes, you are required to obtain approval from the South African Reserve Bank for payments (including payment of proceeds from the sale of shares of Common Stock) that you receive into accounts based outside of South Africa (e.g., a U.S. brokerage account). Because the exchange control regulations change frequently and without notice, you should consult your legal advisor prior to the acquisition or sale of shares of Common Stock under the Plan to ensure compliance with current regulations.
 
Spain
 
Labor Law Acknowledgment. This provision supplements Sections 2(h) and 7 of the Agreement:
 
By accepting the MSUs, you consent to participation in the Plan and acknowledge that you have received a copy of the Plan document.
 
You understand and agree that, as a condition of the grant of the MSUs, except as provided for in Section 2 of the Agreement, your termination of employment for any reason (including for the reasons listed below) will automatically result in the forfeiture of any MSUs that have not vested on the date of your termination.
 
In particular, you understand and agree that, unless otherwise provided in the Agreement, the MSUs will be forfeited without entitlement to the underlying shares of Common Stock or to any amount as indemnification in the event of a termination of your employment prior to vesting by reason of, including, but not limited to: resignation, disciplinary dismissal adjudged to be with cause, disciplinary dismissal adjudged or recognized to be without good cause (i.e., subject to a “despido improcedente”), individual or collective layoff on objective grounds, whether adjudged to be with cause or adjudged or recognized to be without cause, material modification of the terms of employment under Article 41 of the Workers’ Statute, relocation under Article 40 of the Workers’ Statute, Article 50 of the Workers’ Statute, unilateral withdrawal by the Employer, and under Article 10.3 of Royal Decree 1382/1985.
 
Furthermore, you understand that the Company has unilaterally, gratuitously and discretionally decided to grant MSUs under the Plan to individuals who may be employees of the Company or a subsidiary. The decision is a limited decision that is entered into upon the express assumption and condition that any grant will not economically or otherwise bind the Company or any subsidiary on an ongoing basis, other than as expressly set forth in the Agreement. Consequently, you understand that the MSUs are granted on the assumption and condition that the MSUs and the shares of Common Stock underlying the MSUs shall not become a part of any employment or service contract (either with the Company, the Employer or any subsidiary) and shall not be considered a mandatory benefit, salary for any purposes (including severance compensation) or any other right whatsoever. In addition, you understand that the MSUs would not be granted to you but for the assumptions and conditions referred to above; thus, you acknowledge 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 Award of MSUs shall be null and void.
36

Securities Law Information. The MSUs and the Common Stock described in the Agreement and this Addendum A do not qualify under Spanish regulations as securities. No “offer of securities to the public,” as defined under Spanish law, has taken place or will take place in the Spanish territory. The Agreement (including this Addendum A) has not been nor will it be registered with the Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores, and does not constitute a public offering prospectus.
 
Exchange Control Information. If you acquire shares of Common Stock issued pursuant to the MSUs and wish to import the ownership title of such shares (i.e., share certificates) into Spain, you must declare the importation of such securities to the Spanish Direccion General de Comercio e inversiones (the “DGCI”). Generally, the declaration must be made in January for shares of Common Stock acquired or sold during (or owned as of December 31 of) the prior year; however, if the value of shares acquired or sold exceeds the applicable threshold (currently €1,502,530) (or you hold 10% or more of the share capital of the Company or such other amount that would entitle you to join the Company’s board of directors), the declaration must be filed within one month of the acquisition or sale, as applicable. In addition, you also must file a declaration of ownership of foreign securities with the Directorate of Foreign Transactions each January.
 
You are also required to electronically declare to the Bank of Spain any security accounts (including brokerage accounts held abroad), as well as the security (including shares of Common Stock acquired at vesting of MSUs) held in such accounts and any transactions carried out with non-residents if the value of the transactions for all such accounts during the prior year or the balances in such accounts as of December 31 of the prior year exceeds €1,000,000. Unvested rights (e.g., MSUs, etc.) are not considered assets or rights for purposes of this requirement.
 
Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information. To the extent you hold shares of Common Stock and/or have bank accounts outside of Spain with a value in excess of €50,000 (for each type of asset) as of December 31, you will be required to report information on such assets on your tax return for such year. After such shares of Common Stock and/or accounts are initially reported, the reporting obligation will apply for subsequent years only if the value of any previously reported shares of Common Stock or accounts increases by more than €20,000 as of each subsequent December 31 or if you sell shares of Common Stock or cancel bank accounts that were previously reported.
 
Sweden
 
There are no country-specific provisions.
 
Switzerland
 
Securities Law Information. The MSUs are not intended to be publicly offered in or from Switzerland. Because the offer of MSUs is considered a private offering, it is not subject to registration in Switzerland. Neither this document nor any other materials relating to the Plan (i) constitutes a prospectus as such term is understood pursuant to article 652a of the Swiss Code of Obligations, and neither this document nor any other materials relating to the Plan (ii) may be publicly distributed nor otherwise made publicly available in Switzerland, or (iii) have been or will be filed with, approved or supervised by any Swiss regulatory authority, including the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA).
37

Taiwan
 
Securities Law Information. The grant of MSUs and any shares of Common Stock acquired pursuant to the MSUs are available only for employees of the Company and its subsidiaries. The offer of participation in the Plan is not a public offer of securities by a Taiwanese company.
 
Exchange Control Information. You may remit foreign currency (including proceeds from the sale of Common Stock) into or out of Taiwan up to US$5,000,000 per year without special permission. If the transaction amount is TWD500,000 or more in a single transaction, you must submit a Foreign Exchange Transaction Form to the remitting bank and provide supporting documentation to the satisfaction of the remitting bank.
 
Thailand
 
Exchange Control Information. If the proceeds from the sale of shares of Common Stock or the receipt of dividends are equal to or greater than US$50,000 or more in a single transaction, you must repatriate the proceeds to Thailand immediately upon receipt and convert the funds to Thai Baht or deposit the proceeds in a foreign currency deposit account maintained by a bank in Thailand within 360 days of remitting the proceeds to Thailand. In addition you must report the inward remittance to the Bank of Thailand on a foreign exchange transaction form. If you fail to comply with these obligations, you may be subject to penalties assessed by the Bank of Thailand. Because exchange control regulations change frequently and without notice, you should consult your personal advisor before selling shares of Common Stock to ensure compliance with current regulations. You are responsible for ensuring compliance with all exchange control laws in Thailand, and neither the Company nor any of its subsidiaries will be liable for any fines or penalties resulting from your failure to comply with applicable laws.
 
Turkey
 
Securities Law Information. Under Turkish law, you are not permitted to sell shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan in Turkey. The shares of Common Stock are currently traded on the New York Stock Exchange, which is located outside of Turkey, under the ticker symbol “BMY” and the shares of Common Stock may be sold through this exchange.
 
Exchange Control Information. In certain circumstances, Turkish residents are permitted to sell shares traded on a non-Turkish stock exchange only through a financial intermediary licensed in Turkey and should be reported to the Turkish Capital Markets Board. Therefore, you may be required to appoint a Turkish broker to assist with the sale of the shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan. You should consult your personal legal advisor before selling any shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan to confirm the applicability of this requirement.
 
United Arab Emirates
 
Acknowledgment of Nature of Plan and MSUs. This provision supplements Section 7 of the Agreement:

You acknowledge that the MSUs and related benefits do not constitute a component of your “wages” for any legal purpose. Therefore, the MSUs and related benefits will not be included and/or considered for purposes of calculating any and all labor benefits, such as social insurance contributions and/or any other labor-related amounts which may be payable.
38

Securities Law Information. The Plan is only being offered to qualified employees and is in the nature of providing equity incentives to employees of the Company or its subsidiary or affiliate in the UAE. Any documents related to the Plan, including the Plan, Plan prospectus and other grant documents (“Plan Documents”), are intended for distribution only to such employees and must not be delivered to, or relied on by, any other person. Prospective purchasers of the securities offered should conduct their own due diligence on the securities. If you do not understand the contents of the Plan Documents, you should consult an authorized financial adviser.
 
The Emirates Securities and Commodities Authority has no responsibility for reviewing or verifying any Plan Documents nor taken steps to verify the information set out in them, and thus, are not responsible for such documents.

The securities to which this summary relates may be illiquid and/or subject to restrictions on their resale. Prospective purchasers of the securities offered should conduct their own due diligence on the securities.
 
United Kingdom
 
Responsibility for Taxes. This provision supplements Section 4 of the Agreement:
 
Without limitation to Section 4 of the Agreement, you hereby agree that you are liable for all Tax-Related Items and hereby covenant to pay all such Tax-Related Items, as and when requested by the Company or the Employer or by Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (“HMRC”) (or any other tax authority or any other relevant authority). You also hereby agree to indemnify and keep indemnified the Company and the Employer against any Tax-Related Items that they are required to pay or withhold or have paid or will pay on your behalf to HMRC (or any other tax authority or any other relevant authority).
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you are an executive officer or director of the Company (within the meaning of Section 13(k) of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended), you understand that you may not be able to indemnify the Company or the Employer for the amount of Tax-Related Items not collected from or paid by you because the indemnification could be considered to be a loan. In this case, any income tax not collected or paid within ninety (90) days of the end of the U.K. tax year in which an event giving rise to the Tax-Related Items occurs may constitute a benefit to you on which additional income tax and employee national insurance contributions (“NICs”) may be payable. You understand that you 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 and/or the Employer (as appropriate) for the value of employee NICs due on this additional benefit which the Company and/or the Employer may recover from you by any of the means set forth in Section 4 of the Agreement.
 
Venezuela
 
Investment Representation for MSUs. As a condition of the grant of the MSUs, you acknowledge and agree that any shares of Common Stock you may acquire upon vesting of the MSUs are acquired as, and intended to be, an investment rather than for the resale of the shares of Common Stock and conversion of the shares of Common Stock into foreign currency.
 
Securities Law Information. The MSUs granted under the Plan and the shares of Common Stock issued under the Plan are offered as a personal, private, exclusive transaction and are not subject to Venezuelan securities regulations. This offering does not qualify as a public offering under the laws of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and, therefore, it is not required to request the previous authorization of the National Superintendent of Securities.
39

Exchange Control Information. Exchange control restrictions may limit the ability to vest in the MSUs or to remit funds into Venezuela following the sale of shares of Common Stock acquired upon vesting of the MSUs. The Company reserves the right to restrict settlement of the MSUs or to amend or cancel the MSUs at any time in order to comply with applicable exchange control laws in Venezuela. Any shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan are intended to be an investment rather than for the resale and conversion of the shares into foreign currency. You are responsible for complying with exchange control laws in Venezuela and neither the Company nor the Employer will be liable for any fines or penalties resulting from your failure to comply with applicable laws. Because exchange control laws and regulations change frequently and without notice, you should consult with your personal legal advisor before accepting the MSUs and before selling any shares of Common Stock acquired upon vesting of the MSUs to ensure compliance with current regulations.

RESTRICTED STOCK UNITS AGREEMENT
UNDER THE BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB COMPANY
2012 STOCK AWARD AND INCENTIVE PLAN

BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB COMPANY, a Delaware corporation (the Company”), has granted to you the Restricted Stock Units (“RSUs”) specified in the Grant Summary located on the Stock Plan Administrator’s website, which is incorporated into this Restricted Stock Units Agreement (the “Agreement”) and deemed to be a part hereof.  The RSUs have been granted to you under Section 6(e) of the 2012 Stock Award and Incentive Plan (the Plan”), on the terms and conditions specified in the Grant Summary and this Agreement.   Capitalized terms used in this Agreement that are not specifically defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Plan.

1.
RESTRICTED STOCK UNITS AWARD

The Compensation and Management Development Committee of the Board of Directors of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (the Committee”) has granted to you as of the Award Date an Award of RSUs as designated herein subject to the terms, conditions, and restrictions set forth in this Agreement and the Plan.  Each RSU shall represent the conditional right to receive, upon settlement of the RSU, one share of Bristol-Myers Squibb Common Stock (Common Stock”) or, at the discretion of the Company, the cash equivalent thereof (subject to any tax withholding as described in Section 4).  The purpose of such Award is to motivate and retain you as an employee of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, to encourage you to continue to give your best efforts for the Company’s future success, and to increase your proprietary interest in the Company.  Except as may be required by law, you are not required to make any payment (other than payments for taxes pursuant to Section 4 hereof) or provide any consideration other than the rendering of future services to the Company or a subsidiary of the Company.

2.
RESTRICTIONS, FORFEITURES, AND SETTLEMENT

Except as otherwise provided in this Section 2, each RSU shall be subject to the restrictions and conditions set forth herein during the period from the Award Date until the date such RSU has become vested and non-forfeitable such that there are no longer any RSUs that may become potentially vested and non-forfeitable (the “Restricted Period”).  Vesting of the RSUs is conditioned upon you remaining continuously employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company from the Award Date until the relevant vesting date, subject to the provisions of this Section 2.  Assuming satisfaction of such employment conditions, 100% of the RSUs shall vest on the first anniversary of the Award Date (the “Vesting Date”), provided, that, all shares of Common Stock issued pursuant to the vesting of the RSUs (net of any shares withheld or sold for taxes) in accordance with Section 2(b) shall be subject to an additional two year post-vest holding period (the “Post-Vest Holding Period”), and during such Post-Vest Holding Period, you may not Transfer (as defined below) any of the shares of Common Stock issued to you pursuant to the vested RSUs.

(a)
Nontransferability.  (i) During the Restricted Period and any further period prior to settlement of your RSUs, you may not, directly or indirectly, offer, sell, transfer, pledge, assign or otherwise transfer or dispose of (each, a “Transfer”) any of the RSUs or your rights relating thereto, and (ii) during the Post-Vest Holding Period, you may not Transfer any rights relating to the vested RSUs, including the shares of Common Stock issued pursuant to any vested RSUs. If you attempt to Transfer  your rights under this Agreement in violation of the provisions herein, the Company’s obligation to settle RSUs or otherwise make payments shall terminate.
1

(b)
Time of Settlement.  RSUs shall be settled promptly upon expiration of the Restricted Period without forfeiture of the RSUs (i.e., upon vesting), but in any event within 60 days after expiration of the Restricted Period, by delivery of one share of Common Stock for each RSU being settled, or, at the discretion of the Company, the cash equivalent thereof; provided, however, that settlement of an RSU shall be subject to Plan Section 11(k), including if applicable the six-month delay rule in Plan Sections 11(k)(i)(C)(2) and 11(k)(i)(G) and the Post-Vest Holding Period; provided further, that no dividend or dividend equivalents will be paid, accrued or accumulated in respect of the period during which settlement was delayed.  (Note: This rule may apply to any portion of the RSUs that vest after the time you become Retirement eligible under the Plan, and could apply in other cases as well).  Settlement of RSUs which directly or indirectly result from adjustments to RSUs shall occur at the time of settlement of, and subject to the restrictions and conditions that apply to, the granted RSUs, including the Post-Vest Holding Period. Settlement of cash amounts which directly or indirectly result from adjustments to RSUs shall be included as part of your regular payroll payment as soon as administratively practicable after the settlement date for the underlying RSUs, and subject to the restrictions and conditions that apply to, the granted RSUs, including the Post-Vest Holding Period.  Until shares are delivered to you in settlement of RSUs, you shall have none of the rights of a stockholder of the Company with respect to the shares issuable in settlement of the RSUs, including the right to vote the shares and receive actual dividends and other distributions on the underlying shares of Common Stock.  Shares of stock issuable in settlement of RSUs shall be delivered to you upon settlement in certificated form or in such other manner as the Company may reasonably determine.  At that time, you will have all of the rights of a stockholder of the Company, subject to any restrictions and conditions that apply to the shares of Common Stock issuable in settlement of the RSUs, including the Post-Vest Holding Period.

(c)
Retirement and Death.

(i)          In the event of your Retirement (as that term is defined in the Plan; however, if such Retirement is voluntary, you shall forfeit all unvested RSUs on the date of termination) prior to the end of the Restricted Period, you, shall be deemed vested and entitled to settlement of (i.e., the Restricted Period shall expire with respect to) a proportionate number of the total number of RSUs granted, provided that your employment has not been terminated by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for misconduct or other conduct deemed detrimental to the interests of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company.  If you are only eligible for Retirement pursuant to Plan Section 2(x)(iii), and you are employed in the United States or Puerto Rico at the time of your Retirement, you shall be entitled to the pro rata vesting described in this Section 2(c) only if you execute and do not revoke a release in favor of the Company and its predecessors, successors, affiliates, subsidiaries, directors and employees in a form satisfactory to the Company; if you fail to execute or revoke the release, or your release fails to become effective and irrevocable within 60 days of the date your employment terminates, you shall forfeit any RSUs that are unvested as of the date your employment terminates.

(ii)         In the event of your death while employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company prior to the end of the Restricted Period, your estate or legal heirs, as applicable, shall be deemed vested and entitled to settlement of (i.e., the Restricted Period shall expire with respect to) a proportionate number of the total number of RSUs granted -.

(iii)        The formula for determining the proportionate number of your RSUs to become vested and non-forfeitable upon your Retirement or death is available by request from the Office of the Corporate Secretary at 345 Park Avenue, New York, New York 10154.  RSUs that become vested and nonforfeitable under this Section 2(c) shall be distributed in accordance with Section 2(b) (i.e., within 60 days of the date of your death or Retirement).  In the event of your becoming vested hereunder on account of death, or in the event of your death subsequent to your Retirement hereunder and prior to the delivery of shares in settlement of RSUs (not previously forfeited), shares in settlement of your RSUs shall be delivered to your estate or legal heirs, as applicable, upon presentation to the Committee of letters testamentary or other documentation satisfactory to the Committee, and your estate or legal heirs, as applicable, shall succeed to any other rights provided hereunder in the event of your death. Notwithstanding anything else in this Section 2(c) to the contrary, except in the case of your death, all shares issued in settlement of any vested RSUs pursuant to this Section shall continue to be subject to the Post-Vest Holding Period.

(d)
Termination not for Misconduct/Detrimental Conduct.  In the event your employment is terminated by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for reasons other than misconduct or other conduct deemed detrimental to the interests of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, and you are not eligible for Retirement, you shall be entitled to settlement of (i.e., the Restricted Period shall expire with respect to) a proportionate number of the total number of RSUs granted, provided that all shares issued in settlement of any vested RSUs pursuant to this Section shall continue to be subject to the Post-Vest Holding Period. If you are not eligible for Retirement, and you are employed in the United States or Puerto Rico at the time of your termination, you shall be entitled to the pro rata vesting described in this Section 2(d) only if you execute and do not revoke a release in favor of the Company and its predecessors, successors, affiliates, subsidiaries, directors and employees in a form satisfactory to the Company; if you fail to execute or revoke the release, or your release fails to become effective and irrevocable within 60 days of the date your employment terminates, you shall forfeit any RSUs that are unvested as of the date your employment terminates.  The formula for determining the proportionate number of RSUs you are entitled to under this Section 2(d) is available by request from the Office of the Corporate Secretary at 345 Park Avenue, New York, New York 10154.

(e)
Disability.  In the event you become Disabled (as that term is defined below), for the period during which you continue to be deemed to be employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company (i.e., the period during which you receive Disability benefits), you will not be deemed to have terminated employment for purposes of the RSUs.  However, no period of continued Disability shall continue beyond 29 months for purposes of the RSUs, at which time you will have considered to have separated from service in accordance with applicable laws as more fully provided for herein. Upon the termination of your receipt of Disability benefits, (i) you will not be deemed to have terminated employment if you return to employment status, and (ii) if you do not return to employment status or are considered to have separated from service as noted above, you will be deemed to have terminated employment at the date of cessation of payments to you under all disability pay plans of the Company and its subsidiaries (unless you are on an approved leave of absence per Section (i) herein), with such termination treated for purposes of the RSUs as a Retirement or death (as detailed in Section 2(c) herein), or voluntary termination (as detailed in Section 2(g) herein) based on your circumstances at the time of such termination.  For purposes of this Agreement, “Disability” or “Disabled” shall mean qualifying for and receiving payments under a disability plan of the Company or any subsidiary or affiliate either in the United States or in a jurisdiction outside of the United States, and in jurisdictions outside of the United States shall also include qualifying for and receiving payments under a mandatory or universal disability plan or program managed or maintained by the government.

(f)
Qualifying Termination Following Change in Control.  In the event your employment is terminated by reason of a Qualifying Termination during the Protected Period following a Change in Control, the Restricted Period and all remaining restrictions shall expire and the RSUs shall be deemed fully vested.

(g)
Other Termination of Employment.   In the event of your voluntary termination, including a voluntary retirement (subject to Section 2(c)), or termination by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for misconduct or other conduct deemed by the Company to be detrimental to the interests of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, you shall forfeit all unvested RSUs on the date of termination.

(h)
Other Terms.

(i)
In the event that you fail promptly to pay or make satisfactory arrangements as to the Tax-Related Items as provided in Section 4, all RSUs subject to restriction shall be forfeited by you and shall be deemed to be reacquired by the Company.

(ii)
You may, at any time prior to the expiration of the Restricted Period, waive all rights with respect to all or some of the RSUs by delivering to the Company a written notice of such waiver.

(iii)
Termination of employment includes any event if immediately thereafter you are no longer an employee of the Company or any subsidiary of the Company, subject to Section 2(i) hereof.  References in this Section 2 to employment by the Company include employment by a subsidiary of the Company.  Termination of employment means an event after which you are no longer employed by the Company or any subsidiary of the Company.  Such an event could include the disposition of a subsidiary or business unit by the Company or a subsidiary.

(iv)
Upon any termination of your employment, any RSUs as to which the Restricted Period has not expired at or before such termination shall be forfeited, subject to Sections 2(c)-(f) hereof.  Other provisions of this Agreement notwithstanding, in no event will an RSU that has been forfeited thereafter vest or be settled.

(v)
In the event of termination of your employment (for any reason whatsoever, whether or not later found to be invalid or in breach of employment laws in the jurisdiction where you are employed or the terms of your employment agreement, if any), unless otherwise provided in this Agreement or determined by the Company, your right to vest in the RSUs under the Plan, if any, will terminate effective as of the date that you are no longer actively providing services and will not be extended by any notice period (e.g., active services would not include any contractual notice period or any period of “garden leave” or similar period mandated under employment laws in the jurisdiction where you are employed or the terms of your employment agreement, if any); the Company shall have the exclusive discretion to determine when you are no longer actively providing services for purposes of your RSUs (including whether you may still be considered to be providing services while on a leave of absence).

 (vi)
You agree that the Company may recover any incentive-based compensation received by you under this Agreement if such recovery is pursuant to a clawback or recoupment policy approved by the Committee, even if approved subsequent to the date of this Agreement.
 
(i)
The following events shall not be deemed a termination of employment:

(i)
A transfer of you from the Company to a subsidiary of the Company, or vice versa, or from one subsidiary of the Company to another; and

(ii)
A leave of absence from which you return to active service for any purpose approved by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company in writing.

Any failure to return to active service with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company at the end of an approved leave of absence as described herein shall be deemed a voluntary termination of employment effective on the date the approved leave of absence ends, subject to applicable law and any RSUs that are unvested as of the date your employment terminates shall be forfeited subject to Section 2(c) provided, that, all shares issued in settlement of any previously vested RSUs shall continue to be subject to the Post-Vest Holding Period.  During a leave of absence as provided for in (ii) above, although you will be considered to have been continuously employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and not to have had a termination of employment under this Section 2, the Committee may specify that such leave of absence period approved for your personal reasons (and provided for by any applicable law) shall not be counted in determining the period of employment for purposes of the vesting of the RSUs.  In such case, the Vesting Date for unvested RSUs shall be extended by the length of any such leave of absence.

(j)
As more fully provided for in the Plan, notwithstanding any provision herein, in any Award or in the Plan to the contrary, the terms of any Award shall be limited to those terms permitted under Code Section 409A including all applicable regulations and administrative guidance thereunder (“Section 409A”), and any terms not permitted under Section 409A shall be automatically modified and limited to the extent necessary to conform with Section 409A, but only to the extent such modification or limitation is permitted under Section 409A.

NON-COMPETITION AND NON-SOLICITATION AGREEMENT AND COMPANY RIGHT TO INJUNCTIVE RELIEF, DAMAGES, RESCISSION, FORFEITURE AND OTHER REMEDIES
 
You acknowledge that the grant of RSUs pursuant to this Agreement is sufficient consideration for this Agreement, including, without limitation, all applicable restrictions imposed on you by this Section 3.
 
(a)
Confidentiality Obligations and Agreement. By accepting this Agreement, you agree and/or reaffirm the terms of all agreements related to treatment of Confidential Information that you signed at the inception of or during your employment, the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference.  This includes, but is not limited to, use or disclosure of any BMS Confidential Information, Proprietary Information, or Trade Secrets to third parties.  Confidential Information, Proprietary Information, and Trade secrets include, but are not limited to, any information gained in the course of your employment with the Company that is marked as confidential or could reasonably be expected to harm the Company if disclosed to third parties, including without limitation, any information that could reasonably be expected to aid a competitor or potential competitor in making inferences regarding the nature of the Company’s business activities, where such inferences could reasonably be expected to allow such competitor to compete more effectively with the Company.   You agree that you will not remove or disclose Company Confidential Information, Proprietary Information or Trade Secrets.  Unauthorized removal includes forwarding or downloading confidential information to personal email or other electronic media and/or copying the information to personal unencrypted thumb drives, cloud storage or drop box.    Immediately upon termination of your employment for any reason, you will return to the Company all of the Company’s confidential and other business materials that you have or that are in your possession or control and all copies thereof, including all tangible embodiments thereof, whether in hard copy or electronic format and you shall not retain any versions thereof on any personal computer or any other media (e.g., flash drives, thumb drives, external hard drives and the like). In addition, you will thoroughly search personal electronic devices, drives, cloud-based storage, email, cell phones, and social media to ensure that all Company information has been deleted.  In the event that you comingle personal and Company confidential information on these devices or storage media, you hereby consent to the removal and permanent deletion of all information on these devices and media.  Nothing in this paragraph or Agreement limits or prohibits your right to report potential violations of law , rules, or regulations to, or communicate with, cooperate with, testify before, or otherwise assist in an investigation or proceeding by, any government agency or entity, or engage in any other conduct that is required or protected by law or regulation, and you are not required to obtain the prior authorization of the Company to do so and are not required to notify the Company that you have done so. 
 
(b)
Inventions. To the extent permitted by local law, you agree and/or reaffirm the terms of all agreements related to inventions that you signed at the inception of or during your employment, and agree to promptly disclose and assign to the Company all of your interest in any and all inventions, discoveries, improvements and business or marketing concepts related to the current or contemplated business or activities of the Company, and which are conceived or made by you, either alone or in conjunction with others, at any time or place during the period you are employed by the Company. Upon request of the Company, including after your termination, you agree to execute, at the Company’s expense, any and all applications, assignments, or other documents which the Company shall determine necessary to apply for and obtain letters patent to protect the Company’s interest in such inventions, discoveries, and improvements and to cooperate in good faith in any legal proceedings to protect the Company’s intellectual property.

(c)
Non-Competition, Non-Solicitation and Related Covenants.  By accepting this Agreement, you agree to the restrictive covenants outlined in this section unless expressly prohibited by local law or as follows:  The post-termination non-compete restrictions outlined in subparagraphs (i), (ii) and (v) of this Section 3(c) do not apply to overtime eligible employees, to lawyers working in the Company law department or to employees who are, at the time of termination from employment by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, assigned to work for the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and resident full-time in the States of California or North Dakota, except that, should said employee accept employment outside of California or North Dakota, all restrictions in Section 3(c), including, but not limited to, those pertaining to post-termination activities, shall be fully enforceable. There are no exemptions for any Award recipients (including employee residents of the States of California and North Dakota) regarding non-compete provisions while employed at the Company or from subparagraphs (iii) and (iv) of this Section 3(c) during the entire Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period.  If you are assigned to work for the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and resident full-time in Massachusetts or are residing primarily in Massachusetts as of the date of this Agreement, Addendum B to this Agreement shall apply in lieu of Section 3(c), 3(d) and 3(e) of this Agreement.
 
Given the extent and nature of the confidential information that you have obtained or will obtain during the course of your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, it would be inevitable or, at the least, substantially probable that such confidential information would be disclosed or utilized by you should you obtain employment from, or otherwise become associated with, an entity or person that is engaged in a business or enterprise that directly competes with the Company.  Even if not inevitable, it would be impossible or impracticable for the Company to monitor your strict compliance with your confidentiality obligations.  Consequently, you agree that you will not, directly or indirectly:
 
(i)
during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period (as defined below), own or have any financial interest in a Competitive Business (as defined below), except that nothing in this clause shall prevent you from owning one per cent or less of the outstanding securities of any entity whose securities are traded on a U.S. national securities exchange (including NASDAQ) or an equivalent foreign exchange;

(ii)
during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, whether or not for compensation, either on your own behalf or as an employee, officer, agent, consultant, director, owner, partner, joint venturer, shareholder, investor, or in any other capacity, be actively connected with a Competitive Business or otherwise advise or assist a Competitive Business with regard to any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business that competes with any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business with which you worked or about which you became familiar as a result of your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, after your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company terminates for any reason, you may be affiliated with a Competitive Business provided that your affiliation does not involve any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business that competes with any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business with which you were involved within the last twelve months of your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, including any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business which the Company is developing and of which you had knowledge, and you and the Competing Business provide the Company written assurances of this fact prior to your commencing such affiliation;

(iii)
[with respect to executives], during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, employ, solicit for employment, solicit, induce, encourage, or participate in soliciting, inducing or encouraging any Company employee who is employed by the Company or who was employed by the Company within the twelve months preceding the termination of your employment with the Company for any reason, to terminate or reduce his or her or its relationship with the Company or any of its affiliates, successors or assigns (the Related Parties”); This restriction includes, but is not limited to, participation in any parts of the staffing and hiring processes involving a candidate regardless of the means by which the new employer became aware of the candidate;
6

(iv)
during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, solicit, induce, encourage, or appropriate or attempt to solicit, divert or appropriate, by use of Confidential Information or otherwise, any existing or prospective customer, vendor or supplier of the Company or any Related Parties to terminate, cancel or otherwise reduce its relationship with the Company or any Related Parties;

(v)
during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, contact, call upon or solicit any existing customer of the Company or its Related Parties, or prospective customer of the Company or its Related Parties, that you became aware of or was introduced to in the course of your duties for the Company or its Related Parties, or otherwise divert or take away from the Company or its Related Parties the business of any current or prospective customer of the Company or its Related Parties; or

(vi)
during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, engage in any activity that is harmful to the interests of the Company or its Related Parties, including, without limitation, any conduct during the term of your employment that violates the Company’s Standards of Business Conduct and Ethics, securities trading policy and other policies.

(d)
Rescission, Forfeiture and Other Remedies.  If the Company determines that you have violated any applicable provisions of Section 3(c) above during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, in addition to injunctive relief and damages, you agree and covenant that:
 
(i)
any unvested portion of the RSUs and all shares issued in settlement of any previously vested RSUs that remain subject to the Post-Vest Holding Period, in each case, shall be immediately rescinded;

(ii)
you shall automatically forfeit any rights you may have with respect to the RSUs or any shares issued in settlement of any previously vested RSUs that remain subject to the Post-Vest Holding Period, in each case, as of the date of such determination;

(iii)
[if the Post-Vest Holding period shall lapse with respect to shares issued in settlement of any previously vested RSUs within the twelve-month period immediately preceding a violation of Section 3(c) above (or following the date of any such violation), upon the Company’s demand, you shall immediately deliver to it a certificate or certificates for shares of Common Stock that you acquired upon settlement of such RSUs (or an equivalent number of other shares);] and

(iv)
the foregoing remedies set forth in this Section 3(d) shall not be the Company’s exclusive remedies.  The Company reserves all other rights and remedies available to it at law or in equity.

(e)
Definitions.  For purposes of this Agreement, the following definitions shall apply:
 
(i)
“Competitive Business” means any business that is engaged in or is about to become engaged in the development, production or sale of any product, investigational compound, technology, process, service or line of business concerning the treatment of any disease, which product, investigational compound, technology, process, service or line of business resembles or competes with any product, investigational compound, technology, process, service or line of business that was sold by, or in development at, the Company or a subsidiary of the Company during your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company.

(ii)
Because of the global nature of the Company’s business, it is agreed that the restrictions set forth above shall apply in the “Restricted Area,” defined as including without limitation the continent, country and the geographic regions where you worked in and were responsible for while employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, and any other geographic area (country, province, state, city or other political subdivision) in which the Company or a subsidiary of the Company is engaged in business and/or is otherwise selling products or services at the time you ceased working for the Company or a subsidiary of the Company;
7

 (iii)
The “Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period” shall be the period during which Employee is employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and twelve (12) months after the end of Employee’s term of employment with and/or work for the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for any reason, (e.g., restriction applies regardless of the reason for termination and includes voluntary and involuntary termination) (hereinafter “Termination Date”);

(A)
provided, in the event that the Company or a subsidiary of the Company files an action to enforce rights arising out of this Agreement, the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period shall be extended for all periods of time in which you are determined by the Court or other authority to have been in violation of the provisions of Section 3(c).

(f)
Severability.  You acknowledge and agree that the period, scope and geographic areas of restriction imposed upon you by this Section 3 are fair and reasonable and are reasonably required for the protection of the Company.  In case any one or more of the provisions contained in this Agreement should be held invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions will not in any way be affected or impaired and this Agreement shall nevertheless continue to be valid and enforceable as though the invalid provisions were not part of this Agreement.  If the final judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction or other authority declares that any term or provision hereof is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the parties agree that the court making such determination shall have the power to reduce the scope, duration, area or applicability of the term or provision, to delete specific words or phrases, or to replace any invalid, illegal or unenforceable term or provision with a term or provision that is valid, legal and enforceable to the maximum extent permissible under law and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid, illegal or unenforceable term or provision.  You acknowledge and agree that your covenants under this Agreement are ancillary to your employment relationship with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, but shall be independent of any other contractual relationship between you and the Company or a subsidiary of the Company.  Consequently, the existence of any claim or cause of action that you may have against the Company or a subsidiary of the Company shall not constitute a defense to the enforcement of this Agreement by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, nor an excuse for noncompliance with this Agreement.
 
(g)
Additional Remedies.  You acknowledge and agree that any violation by you of this paragraph will cause irreparable harm to the Company and its Related Parties and the Company cannot be adequately compensated for such violation by damages.  Accordingly, if you violate or threaten to violate this Agreement, then, in addition to any other rights or remedies that the Company may have in law or in equity, the Company shall be entitled, without the posting of a bond or other security, to obtain an injunction to stop or prevent such violation, including but not limited to obtaining a temporary or preliminary injunction from a Delaware court pursuant Section 1(a) of the Mutual Arbitration Agreement and Section 14 of this Agreement. You further agree that if the Company incurs legal fees or costs in enforcing this Agreement, you will reimburse the Company for such fees and costs.
 
(h)
Binding Obligations.  These obligations shall be binding both upon you, your assigns, executors, administrators and legal representatives. At the inception of or during the course of your employment, you may have executed agreements that contain similar terms. Those agreements remain in full force and effect.  In the event that there is a conflict between the terms of those agreements and this Agreement, this Agreement will control.
 
(i)
Enforcement.  The Company retains discretion regarding whether or not to enforce the terms of the covenants contained in this Section 3 and its decision not to do so in your instance or anyone’s case shall not be considered a waiver of the Company’s right to do so.
8

(j)
Duty to Notify the Company and Third Parties.  During your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and for a period of 12 months after your termination of employment from the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, you shall communicate your obligations under this Agreement to each subsequent employer.  In addition, at least ten (10) business days prior to commencing employment with a new employer, you shall advise the Company of the name and address of your intended future employer, the title of the position that you have been offered with that subsequent employer, the product and/or investigational compound responsibilities that you will have with the subsequent employer and such information as the Company may request that will assist the Company in evaluating whether such prospective employment would violate this Agreement (except that you need not provide any information that would constitute a trade secret or confidential information of any other party).  If you are actively employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company at the time that you accept a position with a new employer, you are required to notify the Company and provide this information immediately upon your acceptance of the position with the new employer and the Company may choose, in its sole discretion, to limit your duties in your position with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and restrict your access to Company premises, systems, products, information and employees during the notice period.  You understand and agree that the notice requirement set forth in this Section 3(j) is reasonable and necessary to permit the Company to determine whether, in its view, your proposed new position could lead to a violation of this Agreement.  Upon receiving information provided concerning your intended future employment, the Company will evaluate that information and attempt in good faith to engage you in a discussion regarding the applicability and effect of the covenants in this Agreement upon that employment prior to the Company commencing legal action to enforce those covenants.  You also authorize the Company to notify third parties, including without limitation, customers and actual or potential employers, of the terms of this Agreement and your obligations hereunder upon your separation from the Company group or your separation from employment with any subsequent employer during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, by providing a copy of this Agreement or otherwise.
 
4.
RESPONSIBILITY FOR TAXES

You acknowledge that, regardless of any action taken by the Company, any subsidiary or affiliate of the Company, including your employer (“Employer”), the ultimate liability for all income tax (including federal, state, local and non-U.S. taxes), social security, payroll tax, fringe benefits tax, payment on account or other tax-related items related to your participation in the Plan and legally applicable to you or deemed by the Company or the Employer to be an appropriate charge to you even if legally applicable to the Company or the Employer (“Tax-Related Items”) is and remains your responsibility and may exceed the amount actually withheld by the Company or the Employer, if any.  You further acknowledge that the Company, any subsidiary or affiliate and/or the Employer: (a) make no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related Items in connection with any aspect of the RSUs, including the grant of the RSUs, the vesting of RSUs, the conversion of the RSUs into shares of Common Stock or the receipt of an equivalent cash payment, the lapse of any Post-Vest Holding Period, the subsequent sale of any shares of Common Stock acquired at settlement and the receipt of any dividends; and, (b) do not commit to structure the terms of the grant or any aspect of the RSUs to reduce or eliminate your liability for Tax-Related Items or achieve any particular tax result.  Further, if you are subject to Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction, you acknowledge 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 the relevant taxable event or tax withholding, as applicable, you agree to make adequate arrangements satisfactory to the Company or the Employer to satisfy all Tax-Related Items.  In this regard, by your acceptance of the RSUs, you authorize the Company and/or the Employer, or their respective agents, at their discretion, to satisfy any applicable withholding obligations with regard to all Tax-Related Items by one or a combination of the following:

(a)
withholding from your wages or other cash compensation paid to you by the Company and/or the Employer; or

(b)
irrespective of any Post-Vest Holding Period, withholding from proceeds of the sale of shares of Common Stock acquired upon settlement of the RSUs either through a voluntary sale or through a mandatory sale arranged by the Company (on your behalf pursuant to this authorization without further consent); or
9

(c)
irrespective of any Post-Vest Holding Period, withholding in shares of Common Stock to be issued upon settlement of the RSUs;

provided, however, if you are a Section 16 officer of the Company under the Exchange Act, then the Company will withhold shares of Common Stock upon the relevant taxable or tax withholding event, as applicable, unless the use of such withholding method is problematic under applicable tax or securities law or has materially adverse accounting consequences, in which case, the obligation for Tax-Related Items may be satisfied by one or a combination of methods (a) and (b) above.

The Company may withhold or account for Tax-Related Items by considering applicable minimum statutory withholding rates or other applicable withholding rates, including maximum rates applicable in your jurisdiction(s), in which case you may receive a refund of any over-withheld amount in cash and will have no entitlement to the Common Stock equivalent.  If the obligation for Tax-Related Items is satisfied by withholding in shares of Common Stock, for tax purposes, you are deemed to have been issued the full number of shares of Common Stock subject to the vested RSUs, notwithstanding that a number of the shares of Common Stock are held back solely for the purpose of paying the Tax-Related Items.

Finally, you agree to pay to the Company or the Employer, including through withholding from your wages or other cash compensation paid to you by the Company and/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 your participation in the Plan that cannot be satisfied by the means previously described.  The Company may refuse to issue or deliver the shares or the proceeds of the sale of shares of Common Stock, if you fail to comply with your obligations in connection with the Tax-Related Items.

Notwithstanding anything in this Section 4 to the contrary, to avoid a prohibited acceleration under Section 409A, if shares of Common Stock subject to RSUs will be sold on your behalf (or withheld) to satisfy any Tax-Related Items arising prior to the date of settlement of the RSUs, then to the extent that any portion of the RSUs that is considered nonqualified deferred compensation subject to Section 409A, then the number of such shares sold on your behalf (or withheld) shall not exceed the number of shares that equals the liability for Tax-Related Items with respect to such shares.

5.
DIVIDENDS AND ADJUSTMENTS

(a)
Dividends or dividend equivalents are not paid, accrued or accumulated on RSUs during the Restricted Period, except as provided in Section 5(b).
 
(b)
The number of your RSUs and/or other related terms shall be appropriately adjusted, in order to prevent dilution or enlargement of your rights with respect to RSUs, to reflect any changes in the outstanding shares of Common Stock resulting from any event referred to in Plan Section 11(c) or any other “equity restructuring” as defined in FASB ASC Topic 718.
 
6.
EFFECT ON OTHER BENEFITS

In no event shall the value, at any time, of the RSUs or any other payment under this Agreement be included as compensation or earnings for purposes of any other compensation, retirement, or benefit plan offered to employees of the Company or any subsidiary of the Company unless otherwise specifically provided for in such plan.  The RSUs and the underlying shares of Common Stock (or their cash equivalent), and the income and value of the same, are not part of normal or expected compensation or salary for any purpose including, but not limited to, calculation of any severance, resignation, termination, redundancy or end-of-service payments, holiday pay, bonuses, long-service awards, leave-related payments, pension or retirement benefits, or similar mandatory payments.

(i)
Unless otherwise provided in the Plan or by the Company in its discretion, the RSUs and the benefits evidenced by this Agreement do not create any entitlement to have the RSUs or any such benefits transferred to, or assumed by, another company nor to be exchanged, cashed out or substituted for, in connection with any corporate transaction affecting the shares of the Company; and
 
(j)
The following provisions apply only if you are providing services outside the United States: (i) the Award and the shares of Common Stock subject to the RSUs, and the income from and value of same, are not part of normal or expected compensation or salary for any purpose; and (ii) neither the Company, the Employer nor any subsidiary or affiliate of the Company shall be liable for any foreign exchange rate fluctuation between your local currency and the United States Dollar that may affect the value of the RSUs or of any amounts due to you pursuant to the settlement of the RSUs or the subsequent sale of any shares of Common Stock acquired upon settlement.

Your RSUs shall be subject to any special provisions set forth in Addendum A to this Agreement for your country, if any.  If you relocate to one of the countries included in Addendum A, the special provisions for such country shall apply to you, without your consent, to the extent the Company determines that the application of such provisions is necessary or advisable for legal or administrative reasons.  Addendum A constitutes part of this Agreement.

22.
FOREIGN ASSET/ACCOUNT REPORTING REQUIREMENTS AND EXCHANGE CONTROLS

Your country may have certain foreign asset and/or foreign account reporting requirements and exchange controls which may affect your ability to acquire or hold shares of Common Stock under the Plan or cash received from participating in the Plan (including from any dividends paid on shares of Common Stock sale proceeds resulting from the sale of shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan) in a brokerage or bank account outside your country.  You may be required to report such accounts, assets or transactions to the tax or other authorities in your country.  You also may be required to repatriate sale proceeds or other funds received as a result of your participation in the Plan to your country through a designated bank or broker within a certain time after receipt.  You acknowledge that it is your responsibility to be compliant with such regulations, and you should consult your personal legal advisor for any details.

The Company reserves the right to impose other requirements on your participation in the Plan, on the RSUs and on any shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan, to the extent the Company determines it is necessary or advisable for legal or administrative reasons, and to require you to sign any additional agreements or undertakings that may be necessary to accomplish the foregoing.

  By  
    Senior Vice President, Global Human Resources 

I have read this Agreement in its entirety.  I understand that this Award has been granted to provide a means for me to acquire and/or expand an ownership position in Bristol-Myers Squibb Company.  I acknowledge and agree that sales of shares will be subject to the Company’s policies regulating trading by employees.  In accepting this Award, I hereby agree that Fidelity, or such other vendor as the Company may choose to administer the Plan, may provide the Company with any and all account information for the administration of this Award.

                I hereby agree to all the terms, restrictions and conditions set forth in the Agreement, including, but not limited to the Post-Vest Holding Period and post-employment covenants described therein.

Addendum A

BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB COMPANY
SPECIAL PROVISIONS FOR RSUs IN CERTAIN COUNTRIES
 
Unless otherwise provided below, capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the same meanings assigned to them in the Plan and the Agreement.  This Addendum A includes special country-specific terms that apply if you are residing and/or working in one of the countries listed below. This Addendum A is part of the Agreement.
 
This Addendum A also includes information of which you should be aware with respect to your participation in the Plan.  For example, certain individual exchange control reporting requirements may apply upon vesting of the RSUs and/or sale of Common Stock.  The information is based on the securities, exchange control and other laws in effect in the respective countries as of January 2019 and is provided for informational purposes.  Such laws are often complex and change frequently, and results may be different based on the particular facts and circumstances.  As a result, the Company strongly recommends that you do not rely on the information noted herein as the only source of information relating to the consequences of your participation in the Plan because the information may be out of date at the time your RSUs vest or are settled, or you sell shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan.
 
In addition, the information is general in nature and may not apply to your particular situation, and the Company is not in a position to assure you of any particular result.  Accordingly, you should seek appropriate professional advice as to how the relevant laws in your country may apply to your situation.
 
Finally, if you are a citizen or resident of a country other than the one in which you currently are residing and/or working, transfer employment after the RSUs are granted to you, or are considered a resident of another country for local law purposes, the information contained herein for the country you are residing and/or working in at the time of grant may not be applicable to you, and the Company shall, in its discretion, determine to what extent the terms and conditions contained herein shall be applicable to you.  If you transfer residency and/or employment to another country or are considered a resident of another country listed in this Addendum A after the RSUs are granted to you, the terms and/or information contained for that new country (rather than the original grant country) may be applicable to you.
 
All Countries
 
Retirement. The following provision supplements Section 2 of the Agreement:
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company receives a legal opinion that there has been a legal judgment and/or legal development in your jurisdiction that likely would result in the favorable treatment that applies to the RSUs or in the event of your Retirement being deemed unlawful and/or discriminatory, the provisions of Section 2 regarding the treatment of the RSUs in the event of your Retirement shall not be applicable to you.
 
All Non-European Union/Non-European Economic Area Countries
 
Data Privacy Consent.

By accepting the Award, you explicitly and unambiguously consent to the collection, use and transfer, in electronic or other form, of your personal data as described in the Agreement by and among, as applicable, the Employer, the Company and its other subsidiaries and affiliates for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing your participation in the Plan.

You understand that the Company, the Employer and other subsidiaries and affiliates of the Company may hold certain personal information about you, including, but not limited to, your name, home address and telephone number, email address, date of birth, employee ID, social security number, passport or other identification number (e.g., resident registration number), tax code, hire date, termination date, termination code, division name, division code, region name, salary grade, nationality, job title, any shares of stock or directorships held in the Company, details of all RSUs or any other entitlement to shares awarded, canceled, vested, unvested or outstanding in your favor (“Data”), for the purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Plan.

15

 
You understand that Data will be transferred to Fidelity Stock Plan Services and certain of its affiliates (“Fidelity”), or such other stock plan service provider as may be selected by the Company in the future, which assist in the implementation, administration and management of the Plan.  You understand that the recipients of the Data may be located in the United States or elsewhere, and that the recipient’s country (e.g. the United States) may have different data privacy laws and protections than your country.  You understand that if you reside outside the United States, you may request a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of the Data by contacting your local human resources representative.  You authorize the Company, Fidelity and 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 purpose of implementing, administering and managing your participation in the Plan, including any requisite transfer of such Data as may be required to a broker, escrow agent or other third party with whom the shares of Common Stock received upon vesting of the RSUs may be deposited.  You understand that Data will be held only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage your participation in the Plan.  You understand that if you reside outside the United States, you may, at any time, view Data, request 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 your local human resources representative.  Further, you understand that you are providing the consents herein on a purely voluntary basis.  If you do not consent, or if you later seek to revoke your consent, your employment status or service with the Employer will not be affected; the only consequence of refusing or withdrawing your consent is that the Company would not be able to grant RSUs or other equity awards to you or administer or maintain such awards.  Therefore, you understand that refusing or withdrawing your consent may affect your ability to participate in the Plan.  For more information on the consequences of your refusal to consent or withdrawal of consent, you understand that you may contact your local human resources representative.

Upon request of the Company or the Employer, you agree to provide a separate executed data privacy consent form (or any other agreements or consents that may be required by the Company and/or the Employer) that the Company and/or the Employer may deem necessary to obtain from you for the purpose of administering your participation in the Plan in compliance with the data privacy laws in your country, either now or in the future.  You understand and agree that you will not be able to participate in the Plan if you fail to provide any such consent or agreement requested by the Company and/or the Employer.
 
Argentina
 
Labor Law Policy and Acknowledgement.  This provision supplements Section 7 of the Agreement:
 
By accepting the RSUs, you acknowledge and agree that the grant of RSUs is made by the Company (not the Employer) in its sole discretion and that the value of the RSUs or any shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan shall not constitute salary or wages for any purpose under Argentine labor law, including, but not limited to, the calculation of (i) any labor benefits including, but not limited to, vacation pay, thirteenth salary, compensation in lieu of notice, annual bonus, disability, and leave of absence payments, etc., or (ii) any termination or severance indemnities or similar payments.
 
If, notwithstanding the foregoing, any benefits under the Plan are considered salary or wages for any purpose under Argentine labor law, you acknowledge and agree that such benefits shall not accrue more frequently than on the vesting date.
 
Securities Law Information.  Neither the RSUs nor the underlying shares of Common Stock are publicly offered or listed on any stock exchange in Argentina.
 
Exchange Control Information.  Certain restrictions and requirements may apply if and when you transfer proceeds from the sale of shares of Common Stock or any cash dividends paid with respect to such shares into Argentina.
16

Exchange control regulations in Argentina are subject to change.  You should speak with your personal legal advisor regarding any exchange control obligations that you may have prior to vesting in the RSUs or remitting funds into Argentina, as you are responsible for complying with applicable exchange control laws.
 
Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information.  Argentinian residents must report any shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan and held by the resident as of December 31st of each year to the Argentine tax authorities on their annual tax return for that year.

Australia
 
Compliance with Laws.  Notwithstanding anything else in the Agreement, you will not be entitled to, and shall not claim, any benefit under the Plan if the provision of such benefit would give rise to a breach of Part 2D.2 of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth), any other provision of that Act, or any other applicable statute, rule or regulation which limits or restricts the giving of such benefits.  Further, the Employer is under no obligation to seek or obtain the approval of its shareholders in general meeting for the purpose of overcoming any such limitation or restriction.
 
Australian Offer Document.  The offer of RSUs is intended to comply with the provisions of the Corporations Act 2001, ASIC Regulatory Guide 49 and ASIC Class Order CO 14/1000.  Additional details are set forth in the Offer Document for the offer of RSUs to Australian resident employees, which will be provided to you with the Agreement.
 
Tax Information.  The Plan is a plan to which Subdivision 83A-C of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (Cth) applies (subject to conditions in the Act).
 
Exchange Control Information.  Exchange control reporting is required for inbound cash transactions exceeding A$10,000 and inbound international fund transfers of any value, that do not involve an Australian bank.
 
Austria
 
Exchange Control Information.  If you hold shares of Common Stock under the Plan outside of Austria (even if you hold them outside of Austria at a branch of an Austrian bank) or cash (including proceeds from the sale of Common Stock), you may be required to submit a report to the Austrian National Bank as follows: (i) on a quarterly basis if the value of the Common Stock as of any given quarter meets or exceeds €30,000,000; and (ii) on an annual basis if the value of the Common Stock as of December 31 meets or exceeds €5,000,000.  The deadline to file the quarterly report is the 15th day of the month following the end of the respective quarter.  The deadline to file the annual report is January 31 of the following year.
 
When shares of Common Stock are sold, there may be exchange control obligations if the cash proceeds from the sale are held outside Austria.  If the transaction volume of all your cash accounts abroad meets or exceeds €10,000,000, the movements and the balance of all accounts must be reported monthly, as of the last day of the month, on or before the fifteenth day of the following month.  If the transaction value of all cash accounts abroad is less than €10,000,000, no ongoing reporting requirements apply.
 
Belgium
 
Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information.  If you are a Belgian resident, you are required to report any taxable income attributable to the grant of the RSUs on your annual tax return.  In addition, if you are a Belgian resident, you are required to report any securities held (including shares of Common Stock) or bank accounts (including brokerage accounts) you maintain outside of Belgium on your annual tax return. In a separate report, you will be required to provide the National Bank of Belgium with certain details regarding such foreign accounts (including the account number, bank name and country in which any such account was opened).  The forms to complete this report are available on the website of the National Bank of Belgium.
 
Stock Exchange Tax Information.  A stock exchange tax applies to transactions executed by a Belgian resident through a non-Belgian financial intermediary, such as a U.S. broker.  The stock exchange tax likely will apply when shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan are sold.  You should consult with your tax or financial advisor for additional details on your obligations with respect to the stock exchange tax.
17

Brokerage Account Tax Information. You may be subject to a brokerage account tax if the average annual value of securities (including shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan) held by you in a brokerage account exceeds certain thresholds.  As the calculation of this tax is complex, you should consult your personal tax advisor for more details.
 
Brazil
 
Labor Law Policy and Acknowledgement. This provision supplements Section 7 of the Agreement:
 
By accepting the RSUs, you acknowledge and agree that (i) you are making an investment decision and (ii) the value of the underlying shares of Common Stock is not fixed and may increase or decrease in value over the Restricted Period.
 
Compliance with Laws.  By accepting the RSUs, you agree that you will comply with Brazilian law when you vest in the RSUs, lapse in the Post-Vest Holding Period and sell shares of Common Stock. You also agree to report and pay any and all taxes associated with the vesting of the RSUs, lapse in the Post-Vest Holding Period, the sale of the shares of Common Stock acquired pursuant to the Plan and the receipt of any dividends.
 
Foreign Asset/Account Reporting.  You must prepare and submit a declaration of assets and rights held outside of Brazil to the Central Bank on an annual basis if you hold assets or rights valued at more than US$100,000.  Quarterly reporting is required if such amount exceeds US$100,000,000.  The assets and rights that must be reported include shares of Common Stock.
 
Tax on Financial Transaction (IOF).  Repatriation of funds (e.g., sale proceeds) into Brazil and the conversion of USD into BRL associated with such fund transfers may be subject to the Tax on Financial Transactions.  It is your sole responsibility to comply with any applicable Tax on Financial Transactions arising from your participation in the Plan.
 
Bulgaria
 
Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information.  You may be required to report annually to the Bulgarian National Bank details of your receivables in bank accounts held abroad as well as your securities held abroad if the aggregate value of such receivables and securities is equal to or exceeds a certain threshold.
 
Canada
 
Settlement of RSUs.  Notwithstanding any terms or conditions of the Plan or the Agreement to the contrary, RSUs will be settled in shares of Common Stock only, not cash.
 
Securities Law Information.  You acknowledge and agree that you will sell shares of Common Stock acquired through participation in the Plan only outside of Canada through the facilities of a stock exchange on which the Common Stock is listed.  Currently, the shares of Common Stock are listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
 
Termination of Employment.  This provision replaces the second paragraph of Section 2(h)(v) of the Agreement:
 
In the event of termination of your employment (for any reason whatsoever, whether or not later found to be invalid or in breach of employment laws in the jurisdiction where you are employed or the terms of your employment agreement, if any), unless otherwise provided in this Agreement or the Plan, your right to vest in the RSUs, if any, will terminate effective as of the date that is the earlier of (1) the date upon which your employment with the Company or any of its subsidiaries is terminated; (2) the date you are no longer actively employed by or providing services to the Company or any of its subsidiaries; or (3) the date you receive written notice of termination of employment, regardless of any notice period or period of pay in lieu of such notice required under applicable laws (including, but not limited to statutory law, regulatory law and/or common law); the Committee shall have the exclusive discretion to determine when you are no longer employed or actively providing services for purposes of the RSUs (including whether you may still be considered employed or actively providing services while on a leave of absence).
18

Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information.  You may be required to report your foreign specified property on Form T1135 (Foreign Income Verification Statement) if the total cost of your foreign specified property exceeds C$100,000 at any time in the year.  Foreign specified property includes cash held outside of Canada and shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan, and rights to receive shares of Common Stock (e.g., RSUs).  Thus, RSUs must be reported - generally at a nil cost - if the C$100,000 cost threshold is exceeded because of other foreign specified property.  The Form T1135 must be filed by April 30 of the following year.  When shares of Common Stock are acquired, their cost generally is the adjusted cost base (“ACB”) of the shares of Common Stock.  The ACB would ordinarily equal the fair market value of the shares of Common Stock at the time of acquisition, but if you own other shares of Common Stock of the same company, this ACB may have to be averaged with the ACB of the other shares of Common Stock.  You should consult with your personal tax advisor to determine your reporting requirements.
 
The following provision applies if you are resident in Quebec:
 
Data Privacy.  This provision supplements the Data Privacy Consent provision above in this Addendum A:
 
You hereby authorize the Company, the Employer and their representatives to discuss with and obtain all relevant information from all personnel, professional or non-professional, involved with the administration and operation of the Plan.  You further authorize the Company and its subsidiaries to disclose and discuss the Plan with their advisors.  You further authorize the Company and its subsidiaries to record such information and to keep such information in your employee file.
 
Chile
 
Securities Law Information.  The offer of the RSUs constitutes a private offering in Chile effective as of the Award Date.  The offer of RSUs is made subject to general ruling n° 336 of the Commission for the Financial Market (Comisión para el Mercado Financiero, “CMF”).  The offer refers to securities not registered at the securities registry or at the foreign securities registry of the CMF, and, therefore, such securities are not subject to oversight of the CMF.  Given the RSUs are not registered in Chile, the Company is not required to provide information about the RSUs or shares of Common Stock in Chile.  Unless the RSUs and/or the shares of Common Stock are registered with the CMF, a public offering of such securities cannot be made in Chile.
 
Esta oferta de Unidades de Acciones Restringidas (“RSU”) constituye una oferta privada de valores en Chile y se inicia en la Fecha de la Concesión.  Esta oferta de RSU se acoge a las disposiciones de la Norma de Carácter General Nº 336 (“NCG 336”) de la Comisión para el Mercado Financiero (“CMF”).  Esta oferta versa sobre valores no inscritos en el Registro de Valores o en el Registro de Valores Extranjeros que lleva la CMF, por lo que tales valores no están sujetos a la fiscalización de ésta.  Por tratarse los RSU de valores no registrados en Chile, no existe obligación por parte de la Compañía de entregar en Chile información pública respecto de los RSU or sus Acciones.  Estos valores no podrán ser objeto de oferta pública en Chile mientras no sean inscritos en el Registro de Valores correspondiente.
 
Exchange Control Information.  You are responsible for complying with foreign exchange requirements in Chile.  You should consult with your personal legal advisor regarding any applicable exchange control obligations prior to vesting in the RSUs or receiving proceeds from the sale of shares of Common Stock acquired at vesting or cash dividends.
 
You are not required to repatriate funds obtained from the sale of shares of Common Stock or the receipt of any dividends.  However, if you decide to repatriate such funds, you must do so through the Formal Exchange Market if the amount of funds exceeds US$10,000.  In such case, you must report the payment to a commercial bank or registered foreign exchange office receiving the funds.  If your aggregate investments held outside of Chile exceed US$5,000,000 (including shares of Common Stock and any cash proceeds obtained under the Plan) in the relevant calendar year, you must report the investments quarterly to the Central Bank.  Annex 3.1 of Chapter XII of the Foreign Exchange Regulations must be used to file this report.  Please note that exchange control regulations in Chile are subject to change.
19

Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information.  The Chilean Internal Revenue Service (“CIRS”) requires all taxpayers to provide information annually regarding:  (i) the taxes paid abroad which they will use as a credit against Chilean income taxes, and (ii) the results of foreign investments which must be submitted electronically through the CIRS website at www.sii.cl in accordance with applicable deadlines.

You should consult with your personal legal advisor regarding how to register with the CIRS as you may be ineligible to receive certain foreign tax credits if you fail to meet the applicable reporting requirements.  Exchange control and tax reporting requirements in Chile are subject to change, and you should consult with your personal legal and tax advisor regarding any reporting obligations that you may have in connection with the RSUs.
 
China
 
The following provisions apply if you are subject to the exchange control regulations in China, as determined by the Company in its sole discretion:
 
Sales of Shares of Common Stock.  To comply with exchange control regulations in China, irrespective of any Post-Vest Holding Period, you agree that the Company is authorized to force the sale of all or a portion of the shares of Common Stock to be issued to you upon vesting and settlement of the RSUs at any time (including immediately upon vesting, the lapse of the Post-Vest Holding Period or after termination of your employment, as described below), and you expressly authorize the Company’s designated broker to complete the sale of such shares of Common Stock.  You agree to sign any agreements, forms and/or consents that may be reasonably requested by the Company (or the designated broker) to effectuate the sale of the shares of Common Stock and shall otherwise cooperate with the Company with respect to such matters, provided that you shall not be permitted to exercise any influence over how, when or whether the sales occur.  You acknowledge that the Company’s designated broker is under no obligation to arrange for the sale of the shares of Common Stock at any particular price.
 
Upon the sale of the shares of Common Stock, the Company agrees to pay the cash proceeds from the sale of Common Stock (less any applicable Tax-Related Items, brokerage fees or commissions) to you in accordance with applicable exchange control laws and regulations, including, but not limited to, the restrictions set forth in this Addendum A for China below under “Exchange Control Information.”  Due to fluctuations in the Common Stock price and/or applicable exchange rates between the vesting date and (if later) the date on which the shares of Common Stock are sold, the amount of proceeds realized upon sale may be more or less than the market value of the shares of Common Stock on the vesting date (which typically is the amount relevant to determining your Tax-Related Items liability).  You understand and agree that the Company is not responsible for the amount of any loss you may incur and that the Company assumes no liability for any fluctuations in the Common Stock price and/or any applicable exchange rate.
 
Treatment of Shares of Common Stock and RSUs Upon Termination of Employment.  Due to exchange control regulations in China, you understand and agree that, irrespective of any Post-Vest Holding Period, any shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan and held by you in your brokerage account must be sold no later than the last business day of the month following the month of your termination of employment, or within such other period as determined by the Company or required by the China State Administration of Foreign Exchange (“SAFE”) (the “Mandatory Sale Date”).  This includes any portion of shares of Common Stock that vest upon your termination of employment.  For example, if your termination of employment occurs on March 14, 2019, then the Mandatory Sale Date will be April 30, 2019.  You understand that any shares of Common Stock held by you that have not been sold by the Mandatory Sale Date will automatically be sold by the Company’s designated broker at the Company’s direction (on your behalf pursuant to this authorization without further consent), as described under “Sales of Shares of Common Stock” above.
 
If all or a portion of your RSUs become distributable upon your termination of employment or at some time following your termination of employment, that portion will vest and become distributable immediately upon termination of your employment. Any shares of Common Stock distributed to you according to this paragraph must be sold by the Mandatory Sale Date or will be sold by the Company’s designated broker at the Company’s direction (on your behalf pursuant to this authorization without further consent), as described under “Sales of Shares of Common Stock” above.  You will not continue to vest in RSUs or be entitled to any portion of RSUs after your termination of employment.

20

Exchange Control Information.  You understand and agree that, to facilitate compliance with exchange control requirements, you are required to hold any shares of Common Stock to be issued to you upon vesting and settlement of the RSUs in the account that has been established for you with the Company’s designated broker and you acknowledge that you are prohibited from transferring any such shares of Common Stock to another brokerage account.  In addition, you are required to immediately repatriate to China the cash proceeds from the sale of the shares of Common Stock issued upon vesting and settlement of the RSUs and any dividends paid on such shares of Common Stock. You further understand that such repatriation of the cash proceeds will be effectuated through a special exchange control account established by the Company or its subsidiaries, and you hereby consent and agree that the proceeds may be transferred to such special account prior to being delivered to you.  The Company may deliver the proceeds to you in U.S. dollars or local currency at the Company’s discretion.  If the proceeds are paid in U.S. dollars, you understand that you will be required to set up a U.S. dollar bank account in China so that the proceeds may be deposited into this account. If the proceeds are converted to local currency, there may be delays in delivering the proceeds to you and due to fluctuations in the Common Stock trading price and/or the U.S. dollar/PRC exchange rate between the sale/payment date and (if later) when the proceeds can be converted into local currency, the proceeds that you receive may be more or less than the market value of the Common Stock on the sale/payment date (which is the amount relevant to determining your tax liability).  You agree to bear the risk of any currency fluctuation between the sale/payment date and the date of conversion of the proceeds into local currency.
 
You further agree to comply with any other requirements that may be imposed by the Company in the future to facilitate compliance with exchange control requirements in China.
 
Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information.  PRC residents are required to report to SAFE details of their foreign financial assets and liabilities, as well as details of any economic transactions conducted with non-PRC residents, either directly or through financial institutions.   Under these rules, you may be subject to reporting obligations for the Common Stock or equity awards, including RSUs, acquired under the Plan and Plan-related transactions.  It is your responsibility to comply with this reporting obligation and you should consult your personal advisor in this regard.
 
Colombia
 
Labor Law Policy and Acknowledgement. By accepting your Award of RSUs, you expressly acknowledge that, pursuant to Article 15 of Law 50/1990 (Article 128 of the Colombian Labor Code), the RSUs and any payments you receive pursuant to the RSUs are wholly discretionary and are a benefit of an extraordinary nature that do not exclusively depend on your performance.  Accordingly, the Plan, the RSUs and related benefits do not constitute a component of “salary” for any legal purpose, including for purposes of calculating any and all labor benefits, such as fringe benefits, vacation pay, termination or other indemnities, payroll taxes, social insurance contributions, or any other outstanding employment-related amounts, subject to the limitations provided in Law 1393/2010.
 
Exchange Control Information. You are responsible for complying with any and all Colombian foreign exchange restrictions, approvals and reporting requirements in connection with the RSUs and any shares of Common Stock acquired or funds received under the Plan. This may include reporting obligations to the Central Bank (Banco de la República). If applicable, you will be required to register your investment in shares of Common Stock with the Central Bank, regardless of the value of the investment. You should obtain proper legal advice to ensure compliance with applicable Colombian regulations.
 
Securities Law Information.  The shares of Common Stock are not and will not be registered with the Colombian registry of publicly traded securities (Registro Nacional de Valores y Emisores) and therefore the shares of Common Stock may not be offered to the public in Colombia.  Nothing in this document should be construed as the making of a public offer of securities in Colombia.
 
Czech Republic
 
Exchange Control Information.  The Czech National Bank may require you to fulfill certain notification duties in relation to the RSUs and the opening and maintenance of a foreign account.  However, because exchange control regulations change frequently and without notice, you should consult your personal legal advisor prior to the vesting of the RSUs and the sale of shares of Common Stock and before opening any foreign accounts in connection with the Plan to ensure compliance with current regulations.  It is your responsibility to comply with any applicable Czech exchange control laws.
21

Denmark
 
Stock Option Act.  You acknowledge that you have received an Employer Statement in Danish which includes a description of the terms of the RSUs as required by the Danish Stock Option Act, to the extent that the Danish Stock Option Act applies to the RSUs.
 
Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information.  You must report any foreign bank/broker accounts and any deposits and/or shares of Common Stock held in a foreign bank or broker in your tax return.
 
Securities/Tax Reporting Information. As of January 1, 2019, if you hold shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan in a safety-deposit account (e.g., a brokerage account) with either a Danish bank or with an approved foreign broker or bank, he or she is no longer required to file a Form V (Erklaering V) with the Danish Tax Administration.  Further, if you open a brokerage account (or a bank account) with a U.S. bank, the brokerage account (or bank account, as applicable) will be treated as a deposit account if cash can be held in the account.  However, you are no longer required to file a Form K (Erklaering K) with the Danish Tax Administration. The Form V and Form K have been replaced by the automatic exchange of information regarding bank and brokerage accounts. You should consult with your personal advisor to ensure compliance with any applicable obligations.

Any shares of Common Stock issued pursuant to the RSUs shall be delivered to you through a brokerage account in the U.S.  You may hold shares in your brokerage account in the U.S.; however, in no event will shares issued to you and/or share certificates or other instruments be delivered to you in Russia.  The issuance of Common Stock pursuant to the RSUs described herein has not and will not be registered in Russia and hence, the shares of Common Stock described herein may not be admitted or used for offering, placement or public circulation in Russia.
 
U.S. Transaction.  You are not permitted to make any public advertising or announcements regarding the RSUs or Common Stock in Russia, or promote these shares to other Russian legal entities or individuals, and you are not permitted to sell or otherwise dispose of Common Stock directly to other Russian legal entities or individuals.  You are permitted to sell shares of Common Stock only on the New York Stock Exchange and only through a U.S. broker.
 
Data Privacy.  This section replaces the Data Privacy Consent provision above in this Addendum A:
 
You hereby explicitly and unambiguously consent to the collection, use and transfer, in electronic or other form, of your personal data as described in this Agreement by and among, as applicable, the Employer, the Company and its subsidiaries for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing your participation in the Plan.
 
You understand that the Company, any subsidiary and/or the Employer may hold certain personal information about you, including, but not limited to, your name, home address, email address and telephone number, date of birth, social insurance or passport number or other identification number (e.g., resident registration number), salary, nationality, job title, any shares of stock or directorships held in the Company, details of all RSUs or any other entitlement to shares awarded, canceled, vested, unvested or outstanding in your favor (“Data”), for the purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Plan.
 
You understand that Data may be transferred to Fidelity, or such other stock plan service provider as may be selected by the Company in the future, which assists in the implementation, administration and management of the Plan. You understand that the recipients of the Data may be located in the United States, or elsewhere, and that the recipient’s country (e.g., the United States) may have different data privacy laws and protections than your country.  In this case, appropriate safeguards will be taken by the Company to ensure that your Data is processed with an adequate level of protection and in compliance with applicable local laws and regulation (especially through contractual clauses like European Model Clauses for European countries).  You understand that if you reside outside the United States, you may request a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of the Data by contacting the International Compensation and Benefits Group.  You authorize the Company, Fidelity and 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 purpose of implementing, administering and managing your participation in the Plan, including any requisite transfer of such Data as may be required to a broker, escrow agent or other third party with whom the shares of Common Stock received upon vesting of the RSUs may be deposited.  You understand that Data will be held only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage your participation in the Plan.
27

You understand that if you reside outside the United States, you 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 and without cost, by contacting in writing the International Compensation and Benefits Group.  Further, you understand that you are providing the consents herein on a purely voluntary basis.  If you do not consent, or if you later seek to revoke your consent, your employment status or service with the Employer will not be affected; the only consequence of refusing or withdrawing your consent is that the Company would not be able to grant you RSUs or other equity awards or administer or maintain such awards.  Therefore, you understand that refusing or withdrawing your consent may affect your ability to participate in the Plan.  For more information on the consequences of your refusal to consent or withdrawal of consent, you understand that you may contact the International Compensation and Benefits Group.
 
Labor Law InformationYou acknowledge that if you continue to hold shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan after an involuntary termination of your employment, you may not be eligible to receive unemployment benefits in Russia.
 
Anti-Corruption Information.  Anti-corruption laws prohibit certain public servants, their spouses and their dependent children from owning any foreign source financial instruments (e.g., shares of foreign companies such as the Company).  Accordingly, you should inform the Company if you are covered by these laws because you should not hold shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan.

You are required to immediately notify the Employer of the amount of any gain realized at vesting of the RSUs.  If you fail to advise the Employer of such gain, you may be liable for a fine.

Spain
 
Labor Law Acknowledgment.  This provision supplements Sections 2(g) and 7 of the Agreement:
 
By accepting the RSUs, you consent to participation in the Plan and acknowledge that you have received a copy of the Plan document.
 
You understand and agree that, as a condition of the grant of the RSUs, except as provided for in Section 2 of the Agreement, your termination of employment for any reason (including for the reasons listed below) will automatically result in the forfeiture of any RSUs that have not vested on the date of your termination.
 
In particular, you understand and agree that, unless otherwise provided in the Agreement, the RSUs will be forfeited without entitlement to the underlying shares of Common Stock or to any amount as indemnification in the event of a termination of your employment prior to vesting by reason of, including, but not limited to: resignation, disciplinary dismissal adjudged to be with cause, disciplinary dismissal adjudged or recognized to be without good cause (i.e., subject to a “despido improcedente”), individual or collective layoff on objective grounds, whether adjudged to be with cause or adjudged or recognized to be without cause, material modification of the terms of employment under Article 41 of the Workers’ Statute, relocation under Article 40 of the Workers’ Statute, Article 50 of the Workers’ Statute, unilateral withdrawal by the Employer, and under Article 10.3 of Royal Decree 1382/1985.
 
Furthermore, you understand that the Company has unilaterally, gratuitously and discretionally decided to grant RSUs under the Plan to individuals who may be employees of the Company or a subsidiary.  The decision is a limited decision that is entered into upon the express assumption and condition that any grant will not economically or otherwise bind the Company or any subsidiary on an ongoing basis, other than as expressly set forth in the Agreement.  Consequently, you understand that the RSUs are granted on the assumption and condition that the RSUs and the shares of Common Stock underlying the RSUs shall not become a part of any employment or service contract (either with the Company, the Employer or any subsidiary) and shall not be considered a mandatory benefit, salary for any purposes (including severance compensation) or any other right whatsoever.  In addition, you understand that the RSUs would not be granted to you but for the assumptions and conditions referred to above; thus, you acknowledge 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 Award of RSUs shall be null and void.
 
Securities Law Information.  The RSUs and the Common Stock described in the Agreement and this Addendum A do not qualify under Spanish regulations as securities.  No “offer of securities to the public,” as defined under Spanish law, has taken place or will take place in the Spanish territory.  The Agreement (including this Addendum A) has not been nor will it be registered with the Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores, and does not constitute a public offering prospectus.
29

Exchange Control Information.  If you acquire shares of Common Stock issued pursuant to the RSUs and wish to import the ownership title of such shares (i.e., share certificates) into Spain, you must declare the importation of such securities to the Spanish Direccion General de Comercio e inversiones (the “DGCI”). Generally, the declaration must be made in January for shares of Common Stock acquired or sold during (or owned as of December 31 of) the prior year; however, if the value of shares acquired or sold exceeds the applicable threshold (currently €1,502,530) (or you hold 10% or more of the share capital of the Company or such other amount that would entitle you to join the Company’s board of directors), the declaration must be filed within one month of the acquisition or sale, as applicable. In addition, you also must file a declaration of ownership of foreign securities with the Directorate of Foreign Transactions each January.
 
You are also required to electronically declare to the Bank of Spain any security accounts (including brokerage accounts held abroad), as well as the security (including shares of Common Stock acquired at vesting of RSUs) held in such accounts and any transactions carried out with non-residents if the value of the transactions for all such accounts during the prior year or the balances in such accounts as of December 31 of the prior year exceeds €1,000,000. Unvested rights (e.g., RSUs, etc.) are not considered assets or rights for purposes of this requirement.
 
Foreign Asset/Account Reporting Information.  To the extent you hold shares of Common Stock and/or have bank accounts outside of Spain with a value in excess of €50,000 (for each type of asset) as of December 31, you will be required to report information on such assets on your tax return for such year.  After such shares of Common Stock and/or accounts are initially reported, the reporting obligation will apply for subsequent years only if the value of any previously reported shares of Common Stock or accounts increases by more than €20,000 as of each subsequent December 31 or if you sell shares of Common Stock or cancel bank accounts that were previously reported.
 
Sweden
 
There are no country-specific provisions.
 
Switzerland
 
Securities Law Information.  The RSUs are not intended to be publicly offered in or from Switzerland.  Because the offer of RSUs is considered a private offering, it is not subject to registration in Switzerland.  Neither this document nor any other materials relating to the Plan (i) constitutes a prospectus as such term is understood pursuant to article 652a of the Swiss Code of Obligations, and neither this document nor any other materials relating to the Plan (ii) may be publicly distributed nor otherwise made publicly available in Switzerland, or (iii) have been or will be filed with, approved or supervised by any Swiss regulatory authority, including the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA).
 
Taiwan
 
Securities Law Information.  The grant of RSUs and any shares of Common Stock acquired pursuant to these RSUs are available only for employees of the Company and its subsidiaries.  The offer of participation in the Plan is not a public offer of securities by a Taiwanese company.
 
Exchange Control Information.  You may remit foreign currency (including proceeds from the sale of Common Stock) into or out of Taiwan up to US$5,000,000 per year without special permission.  If the transaction amount is TWD500,000 or more in a single transaction, you must submit a Foreign Exchange Transaction Form to the remitting bank and provide supporting documentation to the satisfaction of the remitting bank.
 
Thailand
 
Exchange Control Information.  If the proceeds from the sale of shares of Common Stock or the receipt of dividends are equal to or greater than US$50,000 or more in a single transaction, you must repatriate the proceeds to Thailand immediately upon receipt and convert the funds to Thai Baht or deposit the proceeds in a foreign currency deposit account maintained by a bank in Thailand within 360 days of remitting the proceeds to Thailand. In addition you must report the inward remittance to the Bank of Thailand on a foreign exchange transaction form.  If you fail to comply with these obligations, you may be subject to penalties assessed by the Bank of Thailand.  Because exchange control regulations change frequently and without notice, you should consult your personal advisor before selling shares of Common Stock to ensure compliance with current regulations.  You are responsible for ensuring compliance with all exchange control laws in Thailand, and neither the Company nor any of its subsidiaries will be liable for any fines or penalties resulting from your failure to comply with applicable laws.
30

Turkey
 
Securities Law Information.  Under Turkish law, you are not permitted to sell shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan in Turkey.  The shares of Common Stock are currently traded on the New York Stock Exchange, which is located outside of Turkey, under the ticker symbol “BMY” and the shares of Common Stock may be sold through this exchange.
 
Exchange Control Information.  In certain circumstances, Turkish residents are permitted to sell shares traded on a non-Turkish stock exchange only through a financial intermediary licensed in Turkey and should be reported to the Turkish Capital Markets Board.  Therefore, you may be required to appoint a Turkish broker to assist with the sale of the shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan.  You should consult your personal legal advisor before selling any shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan to confirm the applicability of this requirement.
 
United Arab Emirates
 
Acknowledgment of Nature of Plan and RSUs.  This provision supplements Section 7 of the Agreement:

You acknowledge that the RSUs and related benefits do not constitute a component of your “wages” for any legal purpose.  Therefore, the RSUs and related benefits will not be included and/or considered for purposes of calculating any and all labor benefits, such as social insurance contributions and/or any other labor-related amounts which may be payable.
 
Securities Law Information.  The Plan is only being offered to qualified employees and is in the nature of providing equity incentives to employees of the Company or its subsidiary or affiliate in the UAE.  Any documents related to the Plan, including the Plan, Plan prospectus and other grant documents (“Plan Documents”), are intended for distribution only to such employees and must not be delivered to, or relied on by, any other person.  Prospective purchasers of the securities offered should conduct their own due diligence on the securities. If you do not understand the contents of the Plan Documents, you should consult an authorized financial adviser.

The Emirates Securities and Commodities Authority has no responsibility for reviewing or verifying any Plan Documents  nor taken steps to verify the information set out in them, and thus, are not responsible for  such documents.
 
The securities to which this summary relates may be illiquid and/or subject to restrictions on their resale. Prospective purchasers of the securities offered should conduct their own due diligence on the securities.
 
United Kingdom
 
Responsibility for Taxes.  This provision supplements Section 4 of the Agreement:
 
Without limitation to Section 4 of the Agreement, you hereby agree that you are liable for all Tax-Related Items and hereby covenant to pay all such Tax-Related Items, as and when requested by the Company or the Employer or by Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (“HMRC”) (or any other tax authority or any other relevant authority).  You also hereby agree to indemnify and keep indemnified the Company and the Employer against any Tax-Related Items that they are required to pay or withhold or have paid or will pay on your behalf to HMRC (or any other tax authority or any other relevant authority).
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you are an executive officer or director of the Company (within the meaning of Section 13(k) of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended), you understand that you may not be able to indemnify the Company or the Employer for the amount of Tax-Related Items not collected from or paid by you because the indemnification could be considered to be a loan.  In this case, any income tax not collected or paid within ninety (90) days of the end of the U.K. tax year in which an event giving rise to the Tax-Related Items occurs may constitute a benefit to you on which additional income tax and employee national insurance contributions (“NICs”) may be payable.  You understand that you 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 and/or the Employer (as appropriate) for the value of employee NICs due on this additional benefit which the Company and/or the Employer may recover from you by any of the means set forth in Section 4 of the Agreement.
31

Section 431 Election.  As a condition of participation in the Plan and the vesting of the RSUs, you agree to enter into, jointly with the Employer, the joint election within Section 431 of the U.K. Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003 (“ITEPA 2003”) in respect of computing any tax charge on the acquisition of “restricted securities” (as defined in Sections 423 and 424 of ITEPA 2003), and that you will not revoke such election at any time.  This election will be to treat the shares of Common Stock as if they were not restricted securities (for U.K. tax purposes only).  You must enter into the form of election, attached to this Addendum A, concurrent with accepting the Agreement, or at such subsequent time as may be designated by the Company.

The effect of an election under section 431(1) is that, for the relevant Income Tax and NIC purposes, the employment-related securities and their market value will be treated as if they were not restricted securities and that sections 425 to 430 ITEPA do not apply.  An election under section 431(2) will ignore one or more of the restrictions in computing the charge on acquisition.  Additional Income Tax will be payable (with PAYE and NIC where the securities are Readily Convertible Assets).
 
Should the value of the securities fall following the acquisition, it is possible that Income Tax/NIC that would have arisen because of any future chargeable event (in the absence of an election) would have been less than the Income Tax/NIC due by reason of this election.  Should this be the case, there is no Income Tax/NIC relief available under Part 7 of ITEPA 2003; nor is it available if the securities acquired are subsequently transferred, forfeited or revert to the original owner.
 
3.
Application
 
This joint election is made not later than 14 days after the date of acquisition of the securities by the employee and applies to:
 
Number of securities:

Venezuela
 
Investment Representation for RSUs.  As a condition of the grant of the RSUs, you acknowledge and agree that any shares of Common Stock you may acquire upon vesting of the RSUs and lapse of the Post-Vest Holding Period are acquired as, and intended to be, an investment rather than for the resale of the shares of Common Stock and conversion of the shares of Common Stock into foreign currency.
 
Securities Law Information.  The RSUs granted under the Plan and the shares of Common Stock issued under the Plan are offered as a personal, private, exclusive transaction and are not subject to Venezuelan securities regulations. This offering does not qualify as a public offering under the laws of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and, therefore, it is not required to request the previous authorization of the National Superintendent of Securities.
 
Exchange Control Information.  Exchange control restrictions may limit the ability to vest in the RSUs or remit funds into Venezuela following the sale of shares of Common Stock acquired upon vesting of the RSUs. The Company reserves the right to restrict settlement of the RSUs or to amend or cancel the RSUs at any time in order to comply with applicable exchange control laws in Venezuela.  Any shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan are intended to be an investment rather than for the resale and conversion of the shares into foreign currency.  You are responsible for complying with exchange control laws in Venezuela and neither the Company nor the Employer will be liable for any fines or penalties resulting from your failure to comply with applicable laws.  Because exchange control laws and regulations change frequently and without notice, you should consult with your personal legal advisor before accepting the RSUs and before selling any shares of Common Stock acquired upon vesting of the RSUs to ensure compliance with current regulations.

RESTRICTED STOCK UNITS AGREEMENT

UNDER THE BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB COMPANY

2012 STOCK AWARD AND INCENTIVE PLAN

 

BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB COMPANY, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), has granted to you the Restricted Stock Units (“RSUs”) specified in the Grant Summary located on the Stock Plan Administrator’s website, which is incorporated into this Restricted Stock Units Agreement (the “Agreement”) and deemed to be a part hereof. The RSUs have been granted to you under Section 6(e) of the 2012 Stock Award and Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), on the terms and conditions specified in the Grant Summary and this Agreement. Capitalized terms used in this Agreement that are not specifically defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Plan.

 

1. RESTRICTED STOCK UNITS AWARD

 

The Compensation and Management Development Committee of the Board of Directors of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (the “Committee”) has granted to you as of the Award Date an Award of RSUs as designated herein subject to the terms, conditions, and restrictions set forth in this Agreement and the Plan. Each RSU shall represent the conditional right to receive, upon settlement of the RSU, one share of Bristol-Myers Squibb Common Stock (“Common Stock”) or, at the discretion of the Company, the cash equivalent thereof (subject to any tax withholding as described in Section 4). The purpose of such Award is to motivate and retain you as an employee of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, to encourage you to continue to give your best efforts for the Company’s future success, and to increase your proprietary interest in the Company. Except as may be required by law, you are not required to make any payment (other than payments for taxes pursuant to Section 4 hereof) or provide any consideration other than the rendering of future services to the Company or a subsidiary of the Company.

 

2. RESTRICTIONS, FORFEITURES, AND SETTLEMENT

 

Except as otherwise provided in this Section 2, each RSU shall be subject to the restrictions and conditions set forth herein during the period from the Award Date until the date such RSU has become vested and non-forfeitable such that there are no longer any RSUs that may become potentially vested and non-forfeitable (the “Restricted Period”). Vesting of the RSUs is conditioned upon you remaining continuously employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company from the Award Date until the relevant vesting date, subject to the provisions of this Section 2. Assuming satisfaction of such employment conditions, 100% of the RSUs shall vest on the second anniversary of the Award Date (the “Vesting Date”), provided, that, all shares of Common Stock issued pursuant to the vesting of the RSUs (net of any shares withheld or sold for taxes) in accordance with Section 2(b) shall be subject to an additional one year post-vest holding period (the “Post-Vest Holding Period”), and during such Post-Vest Holding Period, you may not Transfer (as defined below) any of the shares of Common Stock issued to you pursuant to the vested RSUs.

 

(a) Nontransferability. (i) During the Restricted Period and any further period prior to settlement of your RSUs, you may not, directly or indirectly, offer, sell, transfer, pledge, assign or otherwise transfer or dispose of (each, a “Transfer”) any of the RSUs or your rights relating thereto, and (ii) during the Post-Vest Holding Period, you may not Transfer any rights relating to the vested RSUs, including the shares of Common Stock issued pursuant to any vested RSUs. If you attempt to Transfer your rights under this Agreement in violation of the provisions herein, the Company’s obligation to settle RSUs or otherwise make payments shall terminate.
1

(b) Time of Settlement. RSUs shall be settled promptly upon expiration of the Restricted Period without forfeiture of the RSUs (i.e., upon vesting), but in any event within 60 days after expiration of the Restricted Period, by delivery of one share of Common Stock for each RSU being settled, or, at the discretion of the Company, the cash equivalent thereof; provided, however, that settlement of an RSU shall be subject to Plan Section 11(k), including if applicable the six-month delay rule in Plan Sections 11(k)(i)(C)(2) and 11(k)(i)(G) and the Post-Vest Holding Period; provided further, that no dividend or dividend equivalents will be paid, accrued or accumulated in respect of the period during which settlement was delayed. (Note: This rule may apply to any portion of the RSUs that vest after the time you become Retirement eligible under the Plan, and could apply in other cases as well). Settlement of RSUs which directly or indirectly result from adjustments to RSUs shall occur at the time of settlement of, and subject to the restrictions and conditions that apply to, the granted RSUs, including the Post-Vest Holding Period. Settlement of cash amounts which directly or indirectly result from adjustments to RSUs shall be included as part of your regular payroll payment as soon as administratively practicable after the settlement date for the underlying RSUs, and subject to the restrictions and conditions that apply to, the granted RSUs, including the Post-Vest Holding Period. Until shares are delivered to you in settlement of RSUs, you shall have none of the rights of a stockholder of the Company with respect to the shares issuable in settlement of the RSUs, including the right to vote the shares and receive actual dividends and other distributions on the underlying shares of Common Stock. Shares of stock issuable in settlement of RSUs shall be delivered to you upon settlement in certificated form or in such other manner as the Company may reasonably determine. At that time, you will have all of the rights of a stockholder of the Company, subject to any restrictions and conditions that apply to the shares of Common Stock issuable in settlement of the RSUs, including the Post-Vest Holding Period.

 

(c) Retirement and Death.

 

(i)          In the event of your Retirement (as that term is defined in the Plan; however, if such Retirement is voluntary, you shall forfeit all unvested RSUs on the date of termination) prior to the end of the Restricted Period, you, shall be deemed vested and entitled to settlement of (i.e., the Restricted Period shall expire with respect to) a proportionate number of the total number of RSUs granted, provided that your employment has not been terminated by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for misconduct or other conduct deemed detrimental to the interests of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company. If you are only eligible for Retirement pursuant to Plan Section 2(x)(iii), and you are employed in the United States or Puerto Rico at the time of your Retirement, you shall be entitled to the pro rata vesting described in this Section 2(c) only if you execute and do not revoke a release in favor of the Company and its predecessors, successors, affiliates, subsidiaries, directors and employees in a form satisfactory to the Company; if you fail to execute or revoke the release, or your release fails to become effective and irrevocable within 60 days of the date your employment terminates, you shall forfeit any RSUs that are unvested as of the date your employment terminates.

 

(ii)         In the event of your death while employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company prior to the end of the Restricted Period, your estate or legal heirs, as applicable, shall be deemed vested and entitled to settlement of (i.e., the Restricted Period shall expire with respect to) a proportionate number of the total number of RSUs granted.

 

(iii)        The formula for determining the proportionate number of your RSUs to become vested and non-forfeitable upon your Retirement or death is available by request from the Office of the Corporate Secretary at 345 Park Avenue, New York, New York 10154. RSUs that become vested and nonforfeitable under this Section 2(c) shall be distributed in accordance with Section 2(b) (i.e., within 60 days of the date of your death or Retirement). In the event of your becoming vested hereunder on account of death, or in the event of your death subsequent to your Retirement hereunder and prior to the delivery of shares in settlement of RSUs (not previously forfeited), shares in settlement of your RSUs shall be delivered to your estate or legal heirs, as applicable, upon presentation to the Committee of letters testamentary or other documentation satisfactory to the Committee, and your estate or legal heirs, as applicable, shall succeed to any other rights provided hereunder in the event of your death. Notwithstanding anything else in this Section 2(c) to the contrary, except in the case of your death, all shares issued in settlement of any vested RSUs pursuant to this Section shall continue to be subject to the Post-Vest Holding Period.

2

(d) Termination not for Misconduct/Detrimental Conduct. In the event your employment is terminated by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for reasons other than misconduct or other conduct deemed detrimental to the interests of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, and you are not eligible for Retirement, you shall be entitled to settlement of (i.e., the Restricted Period shall expire with respect to) a proportionate number of the total number of RSUs granted, provided that all shares issued in settlement of any vested RSUs pursuant to this Section shall continue to be subject to the Post-Vest Holding Period. If you are not eligible for Retirement, and you are employed in the United States or Puerto Rico at the time of your termination, you shall be entitled to the pro rata vesting described in this Section 2(d) only if you execute and do not revoke a release in favor of the Company and its predecessors, successors, affiliates, subsidiaries, directors and employees in a form satisfactory to the Company; if you fail to execute or revoke the release, or your release fails to become effective and irrevocable within 60 days of the date your employment terminates, you shall forfeit any RSUs that are unvested as of the date your employment terminates. The formula for determining the proportionate number of RSUs you are entitled to under this Section 2(d) is available by request from the Office of the Corporate Secretary at 345 Park Avenue, New York, New York 10154.

 

(e) Disability. In the event you become Disabled (as that term is defined below), for the period during which you continue to be deemed to be employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company (i.e., the period during which you receive Disability benefits), you will not be deemed to have terminated employment for purposes of the RSUs. However, no period of continued Disability shall continue beyond 29 months for purposes of the RSUs, at which time you will have considered to have separated from service in accordance with applicable laws as more fully provided for herein. Upon the termination of your receipt of Disability benefits, (i) you will not be deemed to have terminated employment if you return to employment status, and (ii) if you do not return to employment status or are considered to have separated from service as noted above, you will be deemed to have terminated employment at the date of cessation of payments to you under all disability pay plans of the Company and its subsidiaries (unless you are on an approved leave of absence per Section (i) herein), with such termination treated for purposes of the RSUs as a Retirement or death (as detailed in Section 2(c) herein), or voluntary termination (as detailed in Section 2(g) herein) based on your circumstances at the time of such termination. For purposes of this Agreement, “Disability” or “Disabled” shall mean qualifying for and receiving payments under a disability plan of the Company or any subsidiary or affiliate either in the United States or in a jurisdiction outside of the United States, and in jurisdictions outside of the United States shall also include qualifying for and receiving payments under a mandatory or universal disability plan or program managed or maintained by the government.

 

(f) Qualifying Termination Following Change in Control. In the event your employment is terminated by reason of a Qualifying Termination during the Protected Period following a Change in Control, the Restricted Period and all remaining restrictions shall expire and the RSUs shall be deemed fully vested.

 

(g) Other Termination of Employment. In the event of your voluntary termination, including a voluntary retirement (subject to Section 2(c)), or termination by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for misconduct or other conduct deemed by the Company to be detrimental to the interests of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, you shall forfeit all unvested RSUs on the date of termination.

 

(h) Other Terms.

 

(i) In the event that you fail promptly to pay or make satisfactory arrangements as to the Tax-Related Items as provided in Section 4, all RSUs subject to restriction shall be forfeited by you and shall be deemed to be reacquired by the Company.
3

(ii) You may, at any time prior to the expiration of the Restricted Period, waive all rights with respect to all or some of the RSUs by delivering to the Company a written notice of such waiver.

 

(iii) Termination of employment includes any event if immediately thereafter you are no longer an employee of the Company or any subsidiary of the Company, subject to Section 2(i) hereof. References in this Section 2 to employment by the Company include employment by a subsidiary of the Company. Termination of employment means an event after which you are no longer employed by the Company or any subsidiary of the Company. Such an event could include the disposition of a subsidiary or business unit by the Company or a subsidiary.

 

(iv) Upon any termination of your employment, any RSUs as to which the Restricted Period has not expired at or before such termination shall be forfeited, subject to Sections 2(c)-(f) hereof. Other provisions of this Agreement notwithstanding, in no event will an RSU that has been forfeited thereafter vest or be settled.

 

(v) In the event of termination of your employment (for any reason whatsoever, whether or not later found to be invalid or in breach of employment laws in the jurisdiction where you are employed or the terms of your employment agreement, if any), unless otherwise provided in this Agreement or determined by the Company, your right to vest in the RSUs under the Plan, if any, will terminate effective as of the date that you are no longer actively providing services and will not be extended by any notice period (e.g., active services would not include any contractual notice period or any period of “garden leave” or similar period mandated under employment laws in the jurisdiction where you are employed or the terms of your employment agreement, if any); the Company shall have the exclusive discretion to determine when you are no longer actively providing services for purposes of your RSUs (including whether you may still be considered to be providing services while on a leave of absence).

 

(vi) You agree that the Company may recover any incentive-based compensation received by you under this Agreement if such recovery is pursuant to a clawback or recoupment policy approved by the Committee, even if approved subsequent to the date of this Agreement.

 

(i) The following events shall not be deemed a termination of employment:

 

(i) A transfer of you from the Company to a subsidiary of the Company, or vice versa, or from one subsidiary of the Company to another; and

 

(ii) A leave of absence from which you return to active service for any purpose approved by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company in writing.

 

Any failure to return to active service with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company at the end of an approved leave of absence as described herein shall be deemed a voluntary termination of employment effective on the date the approved leave of absence ends, subject to applicable law and any RSUs that are unvested as of the date your employment terminates shall be forfeited subject to Section 2(c) provided, that, all shares issued in settlement of any previously vested RSUs shall continue to be subject to the Post-Vest Holding Period. During a leave of absence as provided for in (ii) above, although you will be considered to have been continuously employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and not to have had a termination of employment under this Section 2, the Committee may specify that such leave of absence period approved for your personal reasons (and provided for by any applicable law) shall not be counted in determining the period of employment for purposes of the vesting of the RSUs. In such case, the Vesting Date for unvested RSUs shall be extended by the length of any such leave of absence.

 

(j) As more fully provided for in the Plan, notwithstanding any provision herein, in any Award or in the Plan to the contrary, the terms of any Award shall be limited to those terms permitted under Code Section 409A including all applicable regulations and administrative guidance thereunder (“Section 409A”), and any terms not permitted under Section 409A shall be automatically modified and limited to the extent necessary to conform with Section 409A, but only to the extent such modification or limitation is permitted under Section 409A.

3. NON-COMPETITION AND NON-SOLICITATION AGREEMENT AND COMPANY RIGHT TO INJUNCTIVE RELIEF, DAMAGES, RESCISSION, FORFEITURE AND OTHER REMEDIES

 

You acknowledge that the grant of RSUs pursuant to this Agreement is sufficient consideration for this Agreement, including, without limitation, all applicable restrictions imposed on you by this Section 3.

 

(a) Confidentiality Obligations and Agreement. By accepting this Agreement, you agree and/or reaffirm the terms of all agreements related to treatment of Confidential Information that you signed at the inception of or during your employment, the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference. This includes, but is not limited to, use or disclosure of any BMS Confidential Information, Proprietary Information, or Trade Secrets to third parties. Confidential Information, Proprietary Information, and Trade secrets include, but are not limited to, any information gained in the course of your employment with the Company that is marked as confidential or could reasonably be expected to harm the Company if disclosed to third parties, including without limitation, any information that could reasonably be expected to aid a competitor or potential competitor in making inferences regarding the nature of the Company’s business activities, where such inferences could reasonably be expected to allow such competitor to compete more effectively with the Company. You agree that you will not remove or disclose Company Confidential Information, Proprietary Information or Trade Secrets. Unauthorized removal includes forwarding or downloading confidential information to personal email or other electronic media and/or copying the information to personal unencrypted thumb drives, cloud storage or drop box. Immediately upon termination of your employment for any reason, you will return to the Company all of the Company’s confidential and other business materials that you have or that are in your possession or control and all copies thereof, including all tangible embodiments thereof, whether in hard copy or electronic format and you shall not retain any versions thereof on any personal computer or any other media (e.g., flash drives, thumb drives, external hard drives and the like). In addition, you will thoroughly search personal electronic devices, drives, cloud-based storage, email, cell phones, and social media to ensure that all Company information has been deleted. In the event that you comingle personal and Company confidential information on these devices or storage media, you hereby consent to the removal and permanent deletion of all information on these devices and media. Nothing in this paragraph or Agreement limits or prohibits your right to report potential violations of law , rules, or regulations to, or communicate with, cooperate with, testify before, or otherwise assist in an investigation or proceeding by, any government agency or entity, or engage in any other conduct that is required or protected by law or regulation, and you are not required to obtain the prior authorization of the Company to do so and are not required to notify the Company that you have done so. 

 

(b) Inventions. To the extent permitted by local law, you agree and/or reaffirm the terms of all agreements related to inventions that you signed at the inception of or during your employment, and agree to promptly disclose and assign to the Company all of your interest in any and all inventions, discoveries, improvements and business or marketing concepts related to the current or contemplated business or activities of the Company, and which are conceived or made by you, either alone or in conjunction with others, at any time or place during the period you are employed by the Company. Upon request of the Company, including after your termination, you agree to execute, at the Company’s expense, any and all applications, assignments, or other documents which the Company shall determine necessary to apply for and obtain letters patent to protect the Company’s interest in such inventions, discoveries, and improvements and to cooperate in good faith in any legal proceedings to protect the Company’s intellectual property.
5

(c) Non-Competition, Non-Solicitation and Related Covenants. By accepting this Agreement, you agree to the restrictive covenants outlined in this section unless expressly prohibited by local law or as follows: The post-termination non-compete restrictions outlined in subparagraphs (i), (ii) and (v) of this Section 3(c) do not apply to overtime eligible employees, to lawyers working in the Company law department or to employees who are, at the time of termination from employment by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, assigned to work for the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and resident full-time in the States of California or North Dakota, except that, should said employee accept employment outside of California or North Dakota, all restrictions in Section 3(c), including, but not limited to, those pertaining to post-termination activities, shall be fully enforceable. There are no exemptions for any Award recipients (including employee residents of the States of California and North Dakota) regarding non-compete provisions while employed at the Company or from subparagraphs (iii) and (iv) of this Section 3(c) during the entire Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period. If you are assigned to work for the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and resident full-time in Massachusetts or are residing primarily in Massachusetts as of the date of this Agreement, Addendum B to this Agreement shall apply in lieu of Section 3(c), 3(d) and 3(e) of this Agreement.

 

Given the extent and nature of the confidential information that you have obtained or will obtain during the course of your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, it would be inevitable or, at the least, substantially probable that such confidential information would be disclosed or utilized by you should you obtain employment from, or otherwise become associated with, an entity or person that is engaged in a business or enterprise that directly competes with the Company. Even if not inevitable, it would be impossible or impracticable for the Company to monitor your strict compliance with your confidentiality obligations. Consequently, you agree that you will not, directly or indirectly:

 

(i) during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period (as defined below), own or have any financial interest in a Competitive Business (as defined below), except that nothing in this clause shall prevent you from owning one per cent or less of the outstanding securities of any entity whose securities are traded on a U.S. national securities exchange (including NASDAQ) or an equivalent foreign exchange;

 

(ii) during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, whether or not for compensation, either on your own behalf or as an employee, officer, agent, consultant, director, owner, partner, joint venturer, shareholder, investor, or in any other capacity, be actively connected with a Competitive Business or otherwise advise or assist a Competitive Business with regard to any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business that competes with any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business with which you worked or about which you became familiar as a result of your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, after your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company terminates for any reason, you may be affiliated with a Competitive Business provided that your affiliation does not involve any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business that competes with any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business with which you were involved within the last twelve months of your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, including any product, investigational compound, technology, service or line of business which the Company is developing and of which you had knowledge, and you and the Competing Business provide the Company written assurances of this fact prior to your commencing such affiliation;

 

(iii) [with respect to executives], during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, employ, solicit for employment, solicit, induce, encourage, or participate in soliciting, inducing or encouraging any Company employee who is employed by the Company or who was employed by the Company within the twelve months preceding the termination of your employment with the Company for any reason, to terminate or reduce his or her or its relationship with the Company or any of its affiliates, successors or assigns (the “Related Parties”); This restriction includes, but is not limited to, participation in any parts of the staffing and hiring processes involving a candidate regardless of the means by which the new employer became aware of the candidate;
6

(iv) during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, solicit, induce, encourage, or appropriate or attempt to solicit, divert or appropriate, by use of Confidential Information or otherwise, any existing or prospective customer, vendor or supplier of the Company or any Related Parties to terminate, cancel or otherwise reduce its relationship with the Company or any Related Parties;

 

(v) during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, contact, call upon or solicit any existing customer of the Company or its Related Parties, or prospective customer of the Company or its Related Parties, that you became aware of or was introduced to in the course of your duties for the Company or its Related Parties, or otherwise divert or take away from the Company or its Related Parties the business of any current or prospective customer of the Company or its Related Parties; or

 

(vi) during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, engage in any activity that is harmful to the interests of the Company or its Related Parties, including, without limitation, any conduct during the term of your employment that violates the Company’s Standards of Business Conduct and Ethics, securities trading policy and other policies.

 

(d) Rescission, Forfeiture and Other Remedies. If the Company determines that you have violated any applicable provisions of Section 3(c) above during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, in addition to injunctive relief and damages, you agree and covenant that:

 

(i) any unvested portion of the RSUs and all shares issued in settlement of any previously vested RSUs that remain subject to the Post-Vest Holding Period, in each case, shall be immediately rescinded;

 

(ii) you shall automatically forfeit any rights you may have with respect to the RSUs or any shares issued in settlement of any previously vested RSUs that remain subject to the Post-Vest Holding Period, in each case, as of the date of such determination;

 

(iii) [if the Post-Vest Holding period shall lapse with respect to shares issued in settlement of any previously vested RSUs within the twelve-month period immediately preceding a violation of Section 3(c) above (or following the date of any such violation), upon the Company’s demand, you shall immediately deliver to it a certificate or certificates for shares of Common Stock that you acquired upon settlement of such RSUs (or an equivalent number of other shares);] and

 

(iv) the foregoing remedies set forth in this Section 3(d) shall not be the Company’s exclusive remedies. The Company reserves all other rights and remedies available to it at law or in equity.

 

(e) Definitions. For purposes of this Agreement, the following definitions shall apply:

 

(i) “Competitive Business” means any business that is engaged in or is about to become engaged in the development, production or sale of any product, investigational compound, technology, process, service or line of business concerning the treatment of any disease, which product, investigational compound, technology, process, service or line of business resembles or competes with any product, investigational compound, technology, process, service or line of business that was sold by, or in development at, the Company or a subsidiary of the Company during your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company.

 

(ii) Because of the global nature of the Company’s business, it is agreed that the restrictions set forth above shall apply in the “Restricted Area,” defined as including without limitation the continent, country and the geographic regions where you worked in and were responsible for while employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, and any other geographic area (country, province, state, city or other political subdivision) in which the Company or a subsidiary of the Company is engaged in business and/or is otherwise selling products or services at the time you ceased working for the Company or a subsidiary of the Company;

(iii) The “Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period” shall be the period during which Employee is employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and twelve (12) months after the end of Employee’s term of employment with and/or work for the Company or a subsidiary of the Company for any reason, (e.g., restriction applies regardless of the reason for termination and includes voluntary and involuntary termination) (hereinafter “Termination Date”);

 

(A) provided, in the event that the Company or a subsidiary of the Company files an action to enforce rights arising out of this Agreement, the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period shall be extended for all periods of time in which you are determined by the Court or other authority to have been in violation of the provisions of Section 3(c).

 

(f) Severability. You acknowledge and agree that the period, scope and geographic areas of restriction imposed upon you by this Section 3 are fair and reasonable and are reasonably required for the protection of the Company. In case any one or more of the provisions contained in this Agreement should be held invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions will not in any way be affected or impaired and this Agreement shall nevertheless continue to be valid and enforceable as though the invalid provisions were not part of this Agreement. If the final judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction or other authority declares that any term or provision hereof is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the parties agree that the court making such determination shall have the power to reduce the scope, duration, area or applicability of the term or provision, to delete specific words or phrases, or to replace any invalid, illegal or unenforceable term or provision with a term or provision that is valid, legal and enforceable to the maximum extent permissible under law and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid, illegal or unenforceable term or provision. You acknowledge and agree that your covenants under this Agreement are ancillary to your employment relationship with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, but shall be independent of any other contractual relationship between you and the Company or a subsidiary of the Company. Consequently, the existence of any claim or cause of action that you may have against the Company or a subsidiary of the Company shall not constitute a defense to the enforcement of this Agreement by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, nor an excuse for noncompliance with this Agreement.

 

(g) Additional Remedies. You acknowledge and agree that any violation by you of this paragraph will cause irreparable harm to the Company and its Related Parties and the Company cannot be adequately compensated for such violation by damages.  Accordingly, if you violate or threaten to violate this Agreement, then, in addition to any other rights or remedies that the Company may have in law or in equity, the Company shall be entitled, without the posting of a bond or other security, to obtain an injunction to stop or prevent such violation, including but not limited to obtaining a temporary or preliminary injunction from a Delaware court pursuant Section 1(a) of the Mutual Arbitration Agreement and Section 14 of this Agreement. You further agree that if the Company incurs legal fees or costs in enforcing this Agreement, you will reimburse the Company for such fees and costs.

 

(h) Binding Obligations. These obligations shall be binding both upon you, your assigns, executors, administrators and legal representatives. At the inception of or during the course of your employment, you may have executed agreements that contain similar terms. Those agreements remain in full force and effect. In the event that there is a conflict between the terms of those agreements and this Agreement, this Agreement will control.

 

(i) Enforcement. The Company retains discretion regarding whether or not to enforce the terms of the covenants contained in this Section 3 and its decision not to do so in your instance or anyone’s case shall not be considered a waiver of the Company’s right to do so.
8

(j) Duty to Notify the Company and Third Parties. During your employment with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and for a period of 12 months after your termination of employment from the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, you shall communicate your obligations under this Agreement to each subsequent employer. In addition, at least ten (10) business days prior to commencing employment with a new employer, you shall advise the Company of the name and address of your intended future employer, the title of the position that you have been offered with that subsequent employer, the product and/or investigational compound responsibilities that you will have with the subsequent employer and such information as the Company may request that will assist the Company in evaluating whether such prospective employment would violate this Agreement (except that you need not provide any information that would constitute a trade secret or confidential information of any other party). If you are actively employed by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company at the time that you accept a position with a new employer, you are required to notify the Company and provide this information immediately upon your acceptance of the position with the new employer and the Company may choose, in its sole discretion, to limit your duties in your position with the Company or a subsidiary of the Company and restrict your access to Company premises, systems, products, information and employees during the notice period. You understand and agree that the notice requirement set forth in this Section 3(j) is reasonable and necessary to permit the Company to determine whether, in its view, your proposed new position could lead to a violation of this Agreement. Upon receiving information provided concerning your intended future employment, the Company will evaluate that information and attempt in good faith to engage you in a discussion regarding the applicability and effect of the covenants in this Agreement upon that employment prior to the Company commencing legal action to enforce those covenants. You also authorize the Company to notify third parties, including without limitation, customers and actual or potential employers, of the terms of this Agreement and your obligations hereunder upon your separation from the Company group or your separation from employment with any subsequent employer during the Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Period, by providing a copy of this Agreement or otherwise.

 

4. RESPONSIBILITY FOR TAXES

 

You acknowledge that, regardless of any action taken by the Company, any subsidiary or affiliate of the Company, including your employer (“Employer”), the ultimate liability for all income tax (including federal, state, local and non-U.S. taxes), social security, payroll tax, fringe benefits tax, payment on account or other tax-related items related to your participation in the Plan and legally applicable to you or deemed by the Company or the Employer to be an appropriate charge to you even if legally applicable to the Company or the Employer (“Tax-Related Items”) is and remains your responsibility and may exceed the amount actually withheld by the Company or the Employer, if any. You further acknowledge that the Company, any subsidiary or affiliate and/or the Employer: (a) make no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related Items in connection with any aspect of the RSUs, including the grant of the RSUs, the vesting of RSUs, the conversion of the RSUs into shares of Common Stock or the receipt of an equivalent cash payment, the lapse of any Post-Vest Holding Period, the subsequent sale of any shares of Common Stock acquired at settlement and the receipt of any dividends; and, (b) do not commit to structure the terms of the grant or any aspect of the RSUs to reduce or eliminate your liability for Tax-Related Items or achieve any particular tax result. Further, if you are subject to Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction, you acknowledge 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 the relevant taxable event or tax withholding, as applicable, you agree to make adequate arrangements satisfactory to the Company or the Employer to satisfy all Tax-Related Items. In this regard, by your acceptance of the RSUs, you authorize the Company and/or the Employer, or their respective agents, at their discretion, to satisfy any applicable withholding obligations with regard to all Tax-Related Items by one or a combination of the following:

 

(a) withholding from your wages or other cash compensation paid to you by the Company and/or the Employer; or

 

(b) irrespective of any Post-Vest Holding Period, withholding from proceeds of the sale of shares of Common Stock acquired upon settlement of the RSUs either through a voluntary sale or through a mandatory sale arranged by the Company (on your behalf pursuant to this authorization without further consent); or
9

(c) irrespective of any Post-Vest Holding Period, withholding in shares of Common Stock to be issued upon settlement of the RSUs;

 

provided, however, if you are a Section 16 officer of the Company under the Exchange Act, then the Company will withhold shares of Common Stock upon the relevant taxable or tax withholding event, as applicable, unless the use of such withholding method is problematic under applicable tax or securities law or has materially adverse accounting consequences, in which case, the obligation for Tax-Related Items may be satisfied by one or a combination of methods (a) and (b) above.

 

The Company may withhold or account for Tax-Related Items by considering applicable minimum statutory withholding rates or other applicable withholding rates, including maximum rates applicable in your jurisdiction(s), in which case you may receive a refund of any over-withheld amount in cash and will have no entitlement to the Common Stock equivalent. If the obligation for Tax-Related Items is satisfied by withholding in shares of Common Stock, for tax purposes, you are deemed to have been issued the full number of shares of Common Stock subject to the vested RSUs, notwithstanding that a number of the shares of Common Stock are held back solely for the purpose of paying the Tax-Related Items.

 

Finally, you agree to pay to the Company or the Employer, including through withholding from your wages or other cash compensation paid to you by the Company and/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 your participation in the Plan that cannot be satisfied by the means previously described. The Company may refuse to issue or deliver the shares or the proceeds of the sale of shares of Common Stock, if you fail to comply with your obligations in connection with the Tax-Related Items.

 

Notwithstanding anything in this Section 4 to the contrary, to avoid a prohibited acceleration under Section 409A, if shares of Common Stock subject to RSUs will be sold on your behalf (or withheld) to satisfy any Tax-Related Items arising prior to the date of settlement of the RSUs, then to the extent that any portion of the RSUs that is considered nonqualified deferred compensation subject to Section 409A, then the number of such shares sold on your behalf (or withheld) shall not exceed the number of shares that equals the liability for Tax-Related Items with respect to such shares.

 

5. DIVIDENDS AND ADJUSTMENTS

 

(a) Dividends or dividend equivalents are not paid, accrued or accumulated on RSUs during the Restricted Period, except as provided in Section 5(b).

 

(b) The number of your RSUs and/or other related terms shall be appropriately adjusted, in order to prevent dilution or enlargement of your rights with respect to RSUs, to reflect any changes in the outstanding shares of Common Stock resulting from any event referred to in Plan Section 11(c) or any other “equity restructuring” as defined in FASB ASC Topic 718.

 

6. EFFECT ON OTHER BENEFITS

 

In no event shall the value, at any time, of the RSUs or any other payment under this Agreement be included as compensation or earnings for purposes of any other compensation, retirement, or benefit plan offered to employees of the Company or any subsidiary of the Company unless otherwise specifically provided for in such plan. The RSUs and the underlying shares of Common Stock (or their cash equivalent), and the income and value of the same, are not part of normal or expected compensation or salary for any purpose including, but not limited to, calculation of any severance, resignation, termination, redundancy or end-of-service payments, holiday pay, bonuses, long-service awards, leave-related payments, pension or retirement benefits, or similar mandatory payments.

(g) The future value of the underlying shares of Common Stock is unknown, indeterminable and cannot be predicted with certainty;

(i) Unless otherwise provided in the Plan or by the Company in its discretion, the RSUs and the benefits evidenced by this Agreement do not create any entitlement to have the RSUs or any such benefits transferred to, or assumed by, another company nor to be exchanged, cashed out or substituted for, in connection with any corporate transaction affecting the shares of the Company; and

 

(j) The following provisions apply only if you are providing services outside the United States: (i) the Award and the shares of Common Stock subject to the RSUs, and the income from and value of same, are not part of normal or expected compensation or salary for any purpose; and (ii) neither the Company, the Employer nor any subsidiary or affiliate of the Company shall be liable for any foreign exchange rate fluctuation between your local currency and the United States Dollar that may affect the value of the RSUs or of any amounts due to you pursuant to the settlement of the RSUs or the subsequent sale of any shares of Common Stock acquired upon settlement.

Any provision for distribution in settlement of your RSUs and other obligations hereunder shall be by means of bookkeeping entries on the books of the Company and shall not create in you or any beneficiary any right to, or claim against any, specific assets of the Company, nor result in the creation of any trust or escrow account for you or any beneficiary.

  Bristol-Myers Squibb Company
     
  By  
    Senior Vice President, Global Human Resources

  

I have read this Agreement in its entirety. I understand that this Award has been granted to provide a means for me to acquire and/or expand an ownership position in Bristol-Myers Squibb Company. I acknowledge and agree that sales of shares will be subject to the Company’s policies regulating trading by employees. In accepting this Award, I hereby agree that Fidelity, or such other vendor as the Company may choose to administer the Plan, may provide the Company with any and all account information for the administration of this Award.

Addendum A

 

BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB COMPANY

SPECIAL PROVISIONS FOR RSUs IN CERTAIN COUNTRIES

 

Unless otherwise provided below, capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the same meanings assigned to them in the Plan and the Agreement. This Addendum includes special country-specific terms that apply if you are residing and/or working in one of the countries listed below. This Addendum A is part of the Agreement.

 

This Addendum A also includes information of which you should be aware with respect to your participation in the Plan. For example, certain individual exchange control reporting requirements may apply upon vesting of the RSUs and/or sale of Common Stock. The information is based on the securities, exchange control and other laws in effect in the respective countries as of January 2019 and is provided for informational purposes. Such laws are often complex and change frequently, and results may be different based on the particular facts and circumstances. As a result, the Company strongly recommends that you do not rely on the information noted herein as the only source of information relating to the consequences of your participation in the Plan because the information may be out of date at the time your RSUs vest or are settled, or you sell shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan.

 

In addition, the information is general in nature and may not apply to your particular situation, and the Company is not in a position to assure you of any particular result. Accordingly, you should seek appropriate professional advice as to how the relevant laws in your country may apply to your situation.

 

Finally, if you are a citizen or resident of a country other than the one in which you currently are residing and/or working, transfer employment after the RSUs are granted to you, or are considered a resident of another country for local law purposes, the information contained herein for the country you are residing and/or working in at the time of grant may not be applicable to you, and the Company shall, in its discretion, determine to what extent the terms and conditions contained herein shall be applicable to you. If you transfer residency and/or employment to another country or are considered a resident of another country listed in this Addendum A after the RSUs are granted to you, the terms and/or information contained for that new country (rather than the original grant country) may be applicable to you.

 

All Countries

 

Retirement. The following provision supplements Section 2 of the Agreement:

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company receives a legal opinion that there has been a legal judgment and/or legal development in your jurisdiction that likely would result in the favorable treatment that applies to the RSUs or in the event of your Retirement being deemed unlawful and/or discriminatory, the provisions of Section 2 regarding the treatment of the RSUs in the event of your Retirement shall not be applicable to you.

 

All Non-European Union/Non-European Economic Area Countries

 

Data Privacy Consent.

 

By accepting the Award, you explicitly and unambiguously consent to the collection, use and transfer, in electronic or other form, of your personal data as described in the Agreement by and among, as applicable, the Employer, the Company and its other subsidiaries and affiliates for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing your participation in the Plan.

 

You understand that the Company, the Employer and other subsidiaries and affiliates of the Company may hold certain personal information about you, including, but not limited to, your name, home address and telephone number, email address, date of birth, employee ID, social security number, passport or other identification number (e.g., resident registration number), tax code, hire date, termination date, termination code, division name, division code, region name, salary grade, nationality, job title, any shares of stock or directorships held in the Company, details of all RSUs or any other entitlement to shares awarded, canceled, vested, unvested or outstanding in your favor (“Data”), for the purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Plan.

15

You understand that Data will be transferred to Fidelity Stock Plan Services and certain of its affiliates (“Fidelity”), or such other stock plan service provider as may be selected by the Company in the future, which assist in the implementation, administration and management of the Plan. You understand that the recipients of the Data may be located in the United States or elsewhere, and that the recipient’s country (e.g. the United States) may have different data privacy laws and protections than your country. You understand that if you reside outside the United States, you may request a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of the Data by contacting your local human resources representative. You authorize the Company, Fidelity and 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 purpose of implementing, administering and managing your participation in the Plan, including any requisite transfer of such Data as may be required to a broker, escrow agent or other third party with whom the shares of Common Stock received upon vesting of the RSUs may be deposited. You understand that Data will be held only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage your participation in the Plan. You understand that if you reside outside the United States, you may, at any time, view Data, request 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 your local human resources representative. Further, you understand that you are providing the consents herein on a purely voluntary basis. If you do not consent, or if you later seek to revoke your consent, your employment status or service with the Employer will not be affected; the only consequence of refusing or withdrawing your consent is that the Company would not be able to grant RSUs or other equity awards to you or administer or maintain such awards. Therefore, you understand that refusing or withdrawing your consent may affect your ability to participate in the Plan. For more information on the consequences of your refusal to consent or withdrawal of consent, you understand that you may contact your local human resources representative.

 

Upon request of the Company or the Employer, you agree to provide a separate executed data privacy consent form (or any other agreements or consents that may be required by the Company and/or the Employer) that the Company and/or the Employer may deem necessary to obtain from you for the purpose of administering your participation in the Plan in compliance with the data privacy laws in your country, either now or in the future.  You understand and agree that you will not be able to participate in the Plan if you fail to provide any such consent or agreement requested by the Company and/or the Employer.

Labor Law Policy and Acknowledgement. This provision supplements Section 7 of the Agreement:

 

By accepting the RSUs, you acknowledge and agree that the grant of RSUs is made by the Company (not the Employer) in its sole discretion and that the value of the RSUs or any shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan shall not constitute salary or wages for any purpose under Argentine labor law, including, but not limited to, the calculation of (i) any labor benefits including, but not limited to, vacation pay, thirteenth salary, compensation in lieu of notice, annual bonus, disability, and leave of absence payments, etc., or (ii) any termination or severance indemnities or similar payments.

 

If, notwithstanding the foregoing, any benefits under the Plan are considered salary or wages for any purpose under Argentine labor law, you acknowledge and agree that such benefits shall not accrue more frequently than on the vesting date.

Exchange Control Information. Certain restrictions and requirements may apply if and when you transfer proceeds from the sale of shares of Common Stock or any cash dividends paid with respect to such shares into Argentina.

 

Exchange control regulations in Argentina are subject to change.

Australia

 

Compliance with Laws. Notwithstanding anything else in the Agreement, you will not be entitled to, and shall not claim, any benefit under the Plan if the provision of such benefit would give rise to a breach of Part 2D.2 of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth), any other provision of that Act, or any other applicable statute, rule or regulation which limits or restricts the giving of such benefits. Further, the Employer is under no obligation to seek or obtain th
