(e) Enhanced Severance Benefits

On January 10, 2024, the Compensation and Leadership Development Committee of the Board of Directors (the “Committee”) of DocuSign, Inc. (the “Company”) approved the form of Amended and Restated Executive Severance and Change in Control Agreement (the “Restated Executive Severance Agreement”) to be entered into with certain of the Company’s executive officers, including Stephen Shute, President, Worldwide Field Operations (each a “Covered Officer”). The Restated Executive Severance Agreements were approved to coordinate and consolidate the prior amendments to the Executive Severance Agreements and to provide strong retention incentives by including certain limited enhanced benefits in the event of a Covered Officer’s termination without “Cause” from the date of execution through December 31, 2024.

The form Restated Executive Severance Agreement is described in the Company’s Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 16, 2024, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the form of Restated Executive Severance Agreement, which was filed as Exhibit 10.1 thereto.

On March 13, 2024, the Company and Mr. Shute entered into a second amendment and restatement of Mr. Shute’s Restated Executive Severance Agreement (the “Shute Second Restatement”) to provide that Mr. Shute will be eligible for the enhanced benefits upon either a termination without “Cause” or a resignation for “Good Reason” at any time, which benefits were previously only available upon a termination without “Cause” through December 31, 2024. As a result of the Shute Second Restatement, upon either such termination, he will be eligible for 12 months (rather than six months) of COBRA coverage and 12 months (rather than six months) of vesting acceleration under his time-based equity awards. All other terms and conditions of Mr. Shute’s Restated Executive Severance Agreement remain unchanged.

The foregoing descriptions of the Shute Second Restatement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Shute Second Restatement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto.
