1.  Name of Employee:

    

       [  ]       

 

 

 

 

2.  Grant Date:

 

     [  ]    , 20[  ] (the “Grant Date”)

 

 

 

3.  Performance Period:

 

The period commencing on     [  ]     , 20[  ] and ending on

 

 

     [  ]     , 20[  ] (the “Performance  Period”)

 

 

 

4.  Performance Units Granted:

 

    [  ]    

 

 

 

 

5.  Vesting:

 

Except as otherwise provided in this Award Agreement, the Performance Units will vest only if and to the extent that: (a) the Compensation Committee determines that the Performance Goals set forth in Section 6 of this Award Agreement (the “Performance Goals”) have been satisfied; and (b) the Employee is employed with the Company or any Affiliate on the last day of the applicable time‑vesting periods set forth in Section 7 of this Award Agreement.

 

 

 

6.  Performance Goals:

 

The Performance Goal applicable to the Performance Units granted to the Employee pursuant to this Award Agreement shall be Adjusted EPS, as defined in Exhibit A attached hereto and made a part of this Award Agreement.

 

 

 

 

 

At the end of the Performance Period, if Adjusted EPS is less than $[  ], the Performance Units awarded under this Award Agreement shall be forfeited and no longer considered outstanding or to be held by the Employee as of the close of business on the date on which the Compensation Committee certifies that Adjusted EPS is less than $[  ].  If Adjusted EPS is equal to or greater than $[  ], the number of Performance Units awarded under this Award Agreement shall be multiplied by a percentage based upon the actual Adjusted EPS as indicated on Exhibit B attached hereto and made a part of this Award Agreement.  The resulting number from this calculation shall be the number of “Adjusted Performance Units” that shall remain

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

outstanding and held by the Employee, subject to the time‑vesting requirements of Section 7 of this Award Agreement.

 

 

 

7.  Time‑Vesting Requirements:

 

Except as otherwise provided in this Award Agreement, any Adjusted Performance Units that remain outstanding at the end of the Performance Period pursuant to the provisions of Section 6 of this Award Agreement will vest to the extent that the Employee satisfies the requirements of this Section 7.  If the Employee is employed by the Company or any Affiliate on    [  ]   , 20[  ] (the “Initial Vesting  Date”), then 50% of the Adjusted Performance Units will become vested.  If the Employee is employed by the Company or any  Affiliate on    [  ]   , 20[  ] (the “Final Vesting Date”), then the  remaining 50% of the Adjusted Performance Units will become vested.

 

 

 

8.  Settlement:

 

Except as otherwise provided herein, at the time that any of the Performance Units or Adjusted Performance Units vest pursuant to Section 7 or any other section of this Award Agreement, the Employee (or, in the event of the Employee’s death, the Employee’s beneficiary) will receive one (1) share of Stock for each Performance Unit or Adjusted Performance Unit that vests.   Performance Units or Adjusted Performance Units settled under this Award Agreement are intended to be exempt from Section 409A under the exemption for short term deferrals.  Accordingly, Performance Units or Adjusted Performance Units will be settled in shares of Stock no later than the 15th day of the third month following the end of the fiscal year of the Company (or if later the calendar year) in which the Performance Units or Adjusted Performance Units vest. 

 

 

 

9.  Dividend Equivalent Payments:

 

If, during the period beginning on the Grant Date and ending on the date on which any Performance Units or Adjusted Performance Units are to be settled pursuant to Section 8 of this Award Agreement (the “Applicable Dividend Period”), the Company pays any dividends in cash with respect to the outstanding shares of Stock (a “Cash Dividend”), then, upon the settlement of vested Performance Units or Adjusted Performance Units, the Employee shall also be entitled to receive a cash payment in an amount equal to the product of (a) the number of shares of Stock to be issued upon such settlement of the Performance Units or Adjusted Performance Units; and (b) the aggregate amount of the Cash Dividends paid per share of Stock during the Applicable Dividend Period (the “Dividend Equivalents”).  Such Dividend Equivalents will be payable by the Company at the same time as the Performance Units or Adjusted Performance Units to which they relate are settled pursuant to Section 8 of this Award Agreement.

If during the Applicable Dividend Period the Company pays any dividends in shares of Stock with respect to the outstanding shares of Stock, then, the Company will increase the number of Performance Units granted hereunder by an amount equal to the product of (a) the number of shares of Stock to be issued in exchange for the then outstanding Performance Units; and (b) the number of shares of Stock paid by the company per share of Stock (collectively, the “Stock Dividend Performance Units”).  Each Stock Dividend Performance Unit will be subject to the same terms and conditions applicable to the Performance Unit for which such Stock Dividend Performance Unit was awarded (including the calculation described in Section 6) and will be settled at the same time and on the same basis as such Performance Unit.

 

 

 

10.  Retirement:

 

If the Employee’s employment with the Company or any Affiliate terminates by reason of the Employee’s Retirement before the Initial Vesting Date; provided, that, the Employee does not “compete with the business of the Company and its subsidiaries” (as defined in Exhibit C attached hereto and made a part of this Award Agreement) through such date, the Adjusted Performance Units, as calculated under Section 6 of this Award Agreement, shall become vested as of the Initial Vesting Date.  If the Employee’s employment with the Company or any Affiliate terminates by reason of the Employee’s Retirement after the Initial Vesting Date, but before the Final Vesting Date, any Adjusted Performance Units that would have vested had the Employee remained employed until the Final Vesting Date shall become vested as of the Final Vesting Date.  Any Adjusted Performance Units that vest pursuant to the provisions of this Section 10 will be settled at the time and in the manner described in Section 8 of this Award Agreement. 

 

 

 

11.  Death or Disability:

 

If the Employee’s employment with the Company or any Affiliate terminates by reason of the Employee’s death or Disability before the Initial Vesting Date, the Adjusted Performance Units (as calculated under Section 6 of this Award Agreement), pro-rated from    [  ]   , 20[  ] through the date of the Employee’s Termination of Employment, shall become vested as of the Initial Vesting Date and any remaining Adjusted Performance Units granted under this Award Agreement shall be forfeited and no longer considered outstanding as of such date.  If the Employee’s employment with the Company or any Affiliate terminates by reason of the Employee’s death or Disability after the Initial Vesting Date, but before the Final Vesting Date, any Adjusted Performance Units that would have vested had the Employee remained employed until the Final Vesting Date shall become

3


 

 

 

 

 

vested as of the Final Vesting Date.  Any Adjusted Performance Units that vest pursuant to the provisions of this Section 11 will be settled at the time and in the manner described in Section 8 of this Award Agreement.

 

 

 

12.  Termination of Employment for any Reason other than Retirement, Death or Disability:

 

Except as otherwise provided in this Award Agreement, if the Employee’s employment with the Company or any Affiliate terminates for any reason other than the Employee’s Retirement, death or Disability before the date of settlement of an Adjusted Performance Unit under Section 8 of this Award Agreement, then all then unvested Adjusted Performance Units granted under this Award Agreement will be forfeited as of the date of the Employee’s termination of employment.

 

 

 

13.  Change in Control:

 

In the event of a Change in Control, if the Employee is eligible to participate in the Change in Control Plan, the provisions of Exhibit D which is attached hereto and made a part of this Award Agreement will apply with respect to any outstanding Performance Units or Adjusted Performance Units.  The term “Change in Control Plan” shall mean the Tailored Brands, Inc. Senior Employee Change in Control Severance Plan, adopted effective September 8, 2016.

Except as otherwise provided in this Award Agreement, the Employee shall have none of the rights of a shareholder with respect to the shares of Stock underlying the Performance Units or any Adjusted Performance Units, until the Employee becomes the recordholder of the shares of Stock underlying the Performance Units or Adjusted Performance Units.

 

 

 

16.  Effect of Plan:

 

The Performance Units and Adjusted Performance Units are subject in all cases to the terms and conditions set forth in the
