FLEXTRONICS INTERNATIONAL LTD.

2002 INTERIM INCENTIVE PLAN

As Adopted May 6, 2002

     1. PURPOSE. The purpose of this Plan is to provide incentives to attract, retain and motivate eligible persons whose present and potential contributions are important to the success of the Company, its Parent and Subsidiaries, by offering them an opportunity to participate in the Company’s future performance through awards of Options and Share Bonuses. Capitalized terms not defined in the text are defined in Section 20.

     2. SHARES SUBJECT TO THE PLAN.

          2.1 Number of Shares Available. Subject to Sections 2.2 and 15, the total number of Shares reserved and available for grant and issuance pursuant to this Plan will be 20,000,000 Shares plus Shares that are subject to: (a) issuance upon exercise of an Option but cease to be subject to such Option for any reason other than exercise of such Option; (b) issuance pursuant to a Share Bonus but cease to be subject to such Share Bonus for any reason other than issuance pursuant to such Share Bonus; and (c) an Award that otherwise terminates without Shares being issued. At all times the Company shall reserve and keep available a sufficient number of Shares as shall be required to satisfy the requirements of all outstanding Awards granted under this Plan.

          2.2 Adjustment of Shares. Should any change be made to the Shares issuable under the Plan by reason of any stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization, combination of shares, exchange of shares or other change affecting the outstanding Shares as a class without the Company’s receipt of consideration, then appropriate adjustments shall be made to (i) the maximum number and/or class of securities issuable under the Plan and (ii) the number and/or class of securities and price per Share in effect under each Award outstanding under Sections 5 and 6. Such adjustments to the outstanding Awards are to be effected in a manner which shall preclude the enlargement or dilution of rights and benefits under such Awards, provided, however, that (i) fractions of a Share will not be issued but will be replaced by a cash payment equal to the Fair Market Value of such fraction of a Share, as determined by the Committee, and (ii) in the case of an Option granted under Section 5, no such adjustment shall be made if as a result, the Exercise Price would fall below the par value of a Share and if such adjustment would but for this paragraph (ii) result in the Exercise Price being less than the par value of a Share, the Exercise Price payable shall be the par value of a Share. The adjustments determined by the Committee shall be final, binding and conclusive.

     3. ELIGIBILITY. All Awards may be granted to employees, officers and directors of the Company or any Parent or Subsidiary of the Company, provided however, that non-executive directors of the Company shall be eligible for the grant of Awards only to the extent permitted by, and subject to compliance with, all applicable laws and regulations. A person may be granted more than one Award under this Plan. Awards granted to officers and non-employee directors may not exceed in the aggregate forty-nine percent (49%) of all Shares that are reserved for grant under this Plan.

     4. ADMINISTRATION.

          4.1 Committee Authority. This Plan will be administered by the Committee or by the Board acting as the Committee.

(k)

  

make all other determinations necessary or advisable for the administration of this Plan.

          4.2 Committee Discretion. Any determination made by the Committee with respect to any Award will be made in its sole discretion at the time of grant of the Award or, unless in contravention of any express term of this Plan or Award, at any later time, and such determination will be final and binding on the Company and on all persons having an interest in any Award under this Plan. The Committee may delegate to one or more officers of the Company the authority to grant an Award under this Plan to Participants who are not Insiders of the Company.

     5. OPTIONS. The Committee may grant Options that are Nonqualified Stock Options (“NQSOS”) to eligible persons and will determine the number of Shares subject to the Option, the Exercise Price of the Option, the period during which the Option may be exercised, and all other terms and conditions of the Option, subject to the following:

          5.1 Form of Option Grant. Each Option granted under this Plan will be evidenced by an Award Agreement which will expressly identify the Option as a NQSO (“SHARE OPTION AGREEMENT”), and, except as otherwise required by the terms of Section 7 hereof, will be in such form and contain such provisions (which need not be the same for each Participant) as the Committee may from time to time approve, and which will comply with and be subject to the terms and conditions of this Plan.

          5.2 Date of Grant. The date of grant of an Option will be the date on which the Committee makes the determination to grant such Option, unless otherwise specified by the Committee. The Share Option Agreement and a copy of this Plan will be delivered to the Participant within a reasonable time after the granting of the Option.

          5.3 Exercise Period. Options may be exercisable within the times or upon the events determined by the Committee as set forth in the Share Option Agreement governing such Option; provided, however, that no Option will be exercisable after the expiration of ten (10) years from the date the Option is granted; and provided further that no Option granted to a person who is not an employee of the Company or any Parent or Subsidiary of the Company on the date of grant of that Option will be exercisable after the expiration of five (5) years from the date the Option is granted. The Committee also may provide for Options to become exercisable at one time or from time to time, periodically or otherwise, in such number of Shares or percentage of Shares as the Committee determines.

          5.4 Exercise Price. The Exercise Price of an Option will be determined by the Committee when the Option is granted. In no event may the Exercise Price of an Option be less than the par value of the Shares. Payment for the Shares purchased may be made in accordance with Section 7 of this Plan.

          5.5 Method of Exercise.

       

(a)

  

Options may be exercised only by delivery to the Company (or as the Company may direct) of a written share option exercise agreement (the “EXERCISE AGREEMENT”) (in the case of a written Exercise Agreement, in the form approved by the Board or the Committee, which need not be the same for each Participant), in each case stating the number of Shares being purchased, the restrictions imposed on the Shares purchased under such Exercise Agreement, if any, and such representations and agreements regarding Participant’s investment intent and access to information and other matters, if any, as may be required or desirable by the Company to comply with applicable securities laws, together with payment in full of the Exercise Price for the number of Shares being purchased.

 

 

 

 

       

(b)

  

A written Exercise Agreement may be communicated electronically through the use of such security device (including, without limitation, any logon identifier, password, personal identification number, smartcard, digital certificate, digital signature, encryption device, electronic key, and/or other code or any access procedure incorporating any one or more of the foregoing) as may be designated by the Board or the Committee for use in conjunction with the Plan from time to time (“SECURITY DEVICE”), or via an electronic page, site, or environment designated by the Company which is accessible only through the use of such Security Device, and such written Exercise Agreement shall thereby be deemed to have been sent by the designated holder of such Security Device. The Company (or its agent) may accept and act upon any written Exercise Agreement issued and/or transmitted through the use of the Participant’s Security Device (whether actually authorized by the Participant or not) as his authentic and duly authorized Exercise Agreement and the Company (or its agent) may treat such Exercise Agreement as valid and binding on the Participant notwithstanding any error, fraud, forgery, lack of clarity or misunderstanding in the terms of such Exercise Agreement. All written Exercise Agreements issued and/or transmitted through the use of the Participant’s Security Device (whether actually authorized by the Participant or not) are irrevocable and binding on the Participant upon transmission to the Company (or as the Company may direct) and the Company (or its agent) shall be entitled to effect, perform or process such Exercise Agreement without the Participant’s further consent and without further reference to the Participant.

 

 

 

 

       

(c)

  

The Company’s records of the Exercise Agreements (whether delivered or communicated electronically or in printed form), and its record of any transactions maintained by any relevant person authorized by the Company relating to or connected with the Plan, whether stored in audio, electronic, printed or other form, shall be binding and conclusive on the Participant and shall be conclusive evidence of such Exercise Agreements and/or transactions. All such records shall be admissible in evidence and, in the case of a written Exercise Agreement which has been communicated electronically, the Participant shall not challenge or dispute the admissibility, reliability, accuracy or the authenticity of the contents of such records merely on the basis that such records were incorporated and/or set out in electronic form or were produced by or are the output of a computer system, and the Participant waives any of his rights (if any) to so object.

          5.6 Termination. Notwithstanding the exercise periods set forth in the Share Option Agreement, exercise of an Option will always be subject to the following:

       

(a)

  

If the Participant is Terminated for any reason except death or Disability, then the Participant may exercise such Participant’s Options only to the extent that such Options would have been exercisable upon the Termination Date no later than three (3) months after the Termination Date (or such shorter or longer time period not exceeding five (5) years as may be determined by the Committee), but in any event no later than the expiration date of the Options.

 

 

 

 

       

(b)

  

If the Participant is Terminated because of the Participant’s death or Disability (or the Participant dies within three (3) months after a Termination other than for Cause or because of the Participant’s Disability), then the Participant’s Options may be exercised only to the extent that such Options would have been exercisable by the Participant on the Termination Date and must be exercised by the Participant (or the Participant’s legal representative or authorized assignee) no later than twelve (12) months after the Termination Date (or such shorter or longer time period not exceeding five (5) years as may be determined by the Committee), but in any event no later than the expiration date of the Options.

 

 

 

 

       

(c)

  

If the Participant is Terminated for Cause, then the Participant’s Options shall expire on such Participant’s Termination Date, or at such later time and on such conditions as are determined by the Committee (but in any event, no later than the expiration date of the Options).

          5.7 Limitations on Exercise. The Committee may specify a reasonable minimum number of Shares that may be purchased on any exercise of an Option, provided that such minimum number will not prevent the Participant from exercising the Option for the full number of Shares for which it is then exercisable.

          5.8 Modification, Extension or Renewal. The Committee may modify, extend or renew outstanding Options and authorize the grant of new Options in substitution therefor, provided that any such action may not, without the written consent of a Participant, impair any of such Participant’s rights under any Option previously granted, and provided further that the exercise period of any Option may not in any event be extended beyond the periods specified in Section 5.3.

     6. SHARE BONUSES. The Committee may grant Share Bonuses and will determine the number of Shares subject to the Share Bonus, the Purchase Price of the Shares subject to the Share Bonus, and all other terms and conditions of the Share Bonus, subject to the following:

          6.1 Awards of Share Bonuses. Share Bonuses may be awarded pursuant to an Award Agreement (the “SHARE BONUS AGREEMENT”) that will be in such form (which need not be the same for each Participant) as the Committee will from time to time approve, and will comply with and be subject to the terms and conditions of this Plan. Share Bonuses provide the Participant with the right to receive a specified number of Shares at the end of a specified vesting period, or periods, not to exceed, in the case of Participants who are employees of the Company or any Parent or Subsidiary of the Company, ten (10) years from the date of grant of the Share Bonus, and, in the case of Participants who are not employees of the Company or any Parent or Subsidiary of the Company, five (5) years from the date of grant of the Share Bonus (“VESTING PERIODS”) upon receipt of the Purchase Price, and may provide that such number will be increased, or the right to receive Shares accelerated, upon the satisfaction of specified performance goals. Share Bonuses may vary from Participant to Participant and between groups of Participants, and may be based upon the achievement of the Company, Parent or Subsidiary and/or individual performance factors or upon such other criteria as the Committee may determine.

          6.2 Terms of Share Bonuses. The Committee will determine the number of Shares to be awarded to the Participant pursuant to a Share Bonus. If the Share Bonus is being earned upon the satisfaction of performance goals pursuant to a Share Bonus Agreement, then the Committee will: (a) determine the nature, length and starting date of any Performance Period for each Share Bonus; (b) determine the applicable performance goals and Performance Factors, if any; (c) determine the total number of Shares that may be awarded to the Participant, (d)

determine the number of Shares that will be issued in each Performance Period and the effect thereon of the satisfaction of the Performance Factors, including any provision for acceleration of issuance of Shares, or increase in the number of such Shares, and (e) determine whether any payment will be required for the issuance of such Shares other than satisfaction of the Performance Factors and the payment of the Purchase Price.

          The Committee shall, as soon as practicable after the end of each Vesting Period or, as the case may be, Performance Period, determine the extent to which the Share Bonuses have vested or have been earned, and shall thereafter procure the allotment and issuance to the Participant of the Shares to the extent vested and/or earned against payment of the Purchase Price. Performance Periods may overlap and Participants may participate simultaneously with respect to Share Bonuses that are subject to different Performance Periods and different performance goals and other criteria. The number of Shares may be fixed or may vary in accordance with such performance goals and criteria as may be determined by the Committee. The Committee may adjust the performance goals applicable to the Share Bonuses to take into account changes in law and accounting or tax rules and to make such adjustments as the Committee deems necessary or appropriate to reflect the impact of extraordinary or unusual items, events or circumstances to avoid windfalls or hardships.

          6.3 Date of Grant. The date of grant of a Share Bonus will be the date on which the Committee makes the determination to grant such Share Bonus, unless otherwise specified by the Committee. The Share Bonus Agreement and a copy of this Plan will be delivered to the Participant within a reasonable time after the granting of the Share Bonus.

          6.4 Purchase Price. The Purchase Price for each Share subject to a Share Bonus will be equal to the par value of each such Share. Payment of the Purchase Price for the Shares subject to a Share Bonus may be made in accordance with Section 7 of this Plan.

          6.5 Termination. The Share Bonus and all of the Company’s obligations and the Participant’s rights under the Plan and the Share Bonus Agreement (except the right to receive Shares already vested and Shares already earned), shall terminate on the earlier of the Participant’s Termination Date or the date when all the Shares have been allotted and issued.

          6.6 Modification, Extension or Renewal. The Committee may modify, extend or renew outstanding Share Bonuses and authorize the grant of new Share Bonuses in substitution therefor, provided that any such action may not, without the written consent of a Participant, impair any of such Participant’s rights under any Share Bonus previously granted.

     7. PAYMENT FOR SHARE PURCHASES.

          7.1 Payment. Payment for Shares purchased pursuant to this Plan may be made in cash (by check) or, where expressly approved for the Participant by the Committee and where permitted by law:

(a)

  

by cancellation of indebtedness of the Company to the Participant;

 

 

 

(b)

  

by waiver of compensation due or accrued to the Participant for services rendered;

 

 

 

(c)

  

with respect only to purchases upon exercise of an Option, and provided that a public market for the Company’s Shares exists:

 

       

(1)

  

through a “same day sale” commitment from the Participant and a broker-dealer that is a member of the National Association of Securities Dealers (an “NASD DEALER”) whereby the Participant irrevocably elects to exercise the Option and to sell a portion of the Shares so purchased to pay for the Exercise Price, and whereby the NASD Dealer irrevocably commits upon receipt of such Shares to forward the Exercise Price directly to the Company; or

 

(2)

  

 through a “margin” commitment from the Participant and a NASD Dealer whereby the Participant irrevocably elects to exercise the Option and to pledge the Shares so purchased to the NASD Dealer in a margin account as security for a loan from the NASD Dealer in the amount of the Exercise Price, and whereby the NASD Dealer irrevocably commits upon receipt of such Shares to forward the Exercise Price directly to the Company;

 

(d)

  

conversion of a convertible note issued by the Company, the terms of which provide that it is convertible into Shares issuable pursuant to the Plan (with the principal amount and any accrued interest being converted and credited dollar for dollar to the payment of the Exercise Price or, as the case may be, the Purchase Price);

 

 

 

(e)

  

by the Company, as permitted by applicable laws; or

 

 

 

(f)

  

by any combination of the foregoing.

     8. WITHHOLDING TAXES. Whenever Shares are to be issued in satisfaction of Awards granted under this Plan, the Company may require the Participant to remit to the Company an amount sufficient to satisfy federal, state and local withholding tax requirements prior to the delivery of any certificate or certificates for such Shares. Whenever, under this Plan, payments in satisfaction of Awards are to be made in cash, such payment will be net of an amount sufficient to satisfy federal, state, and local withholding tax requirements.

     9. TRANSFERABILITY.

          9.1 Except as otherwise provided in this Section 9, Awards granted under this Plan, and any interest therein, will not be transferable or assignable by a Participant, and may not be made subject to execution, attachment or similar process, otherwise than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution or as determined by the Committee and set forth in the Award Agreement with respect to Awards. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) Participants may transfer or assign their Awards to Family Members through a gift or a domestic relations order (and not in a transfer for value), and (ii) if the terms of the applicable instrument evidencing the grant of an Award so provide, Participants who reside outside of the United States and Singapore may assign their Awards to a financial institution outside of the United States and Singapore that has been approved by the Committee, in accordance with the terms of the applicable instrument. The Participant shall be solely responsible for effecting any such assignment, and for ensuring that such assignment is valid, legal and binding under all applicable laws. The Committee shall have the discretion to adopt such rules as it deems necessary to ensure that any assignment is in compliance with all applicable laws.

          9.2 NQSOs. Unless otherwise restricted by the Committee, an NQSO shall be exercisable: (i) during the Participant’s lifetime only by (A) the Participant, (B) the Participant’s guardian or legal representative, (C) a Family Member of the Participant who has acquired the NQSO by “permitted transfer;” as defined below, (ii) by a transferee that is permitted pursuant to clause (ii) of Section 9.1, for such period as may be authorized by the terms of the applicable instrument evidencing the grant of the applicable Option, or by the Committee, and (iii) after Participant’s death, by the legal representative of the Participant’s heirs or legatees. “Permitted transfer” means any transfer of an interest in such NQSO by gift or domestic relations order effected by the Participant during the Participant’s lifetime. A permitted transfer shall not include any transfer for value; provided that the following shall be permitted transfers and shall not be considered to be transfers for value: (a) a transfer under a domestic relations order in settlement of marital property rights or (b) a transfer to an entity in which more than fifty percent of the voting interests are owned by Family Members or the Participant in exchange for an interest in that entity.

     10. PRIVILEGES OF SHARE OWNERSHIP. No Participant will have any of the rights of a shareholder with respect to any Shares until the Shares are issued to the Participant. After Shares are issued to the Participant, the Participant will be a shareholder and have all the rights of a shareholder with respect to such Shares, including the right to vote and receive all dividends or other distributions made or paid with respect to such Shares.

     11. CERTIFICATES. All certificates for Shares or other securities delivered under this Plan will be subject to such share transfer orders, legends and other restrictions as the Committee may deem necessary or advisable, including restrictions under any applicable federal, state or foreign securities law, or any rules, regulations and other requirements of the SEC or any stock exchange or automated quotation system upon which the Shares may be listed or quoted.

     12. EXCHANGE AND BUYOUT OF AWARDS. The Committee may, at any time or from time to time and subject to compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, authorize the Company, with the consent of the respective Participants, to issue new Awards in exchange for the surrender and cancellation of any or all outstanding Awards. The Committee may at any time and subject to compliance with all applicable laws and regulations buy from a Participant an Award previously granted with payment in cash, Shares or other consideration, based on such terms and conditions as the Committee and the Participant may agree.

     13. SECURITIES LAW AND OTHER REGULATORY COMPLIANCE. An Award will not be effective unless such Award is in compliance with all applicable federal and state securities laws, rules and regulations of any governmental body, and the requirements of any stock exchange or automated quotation system upon which the Shares may then be listed or quoted, as they are in effect on the date of grant of the Award and also on the date of exercise or other issuance. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Plan, the Company will have no obligation to issue or deliver certificates for Shares under this Plan prior to: (a) obtaining any approvals from governmental agencies that the Company determines are necessary or advisable; and/or (b) completion of any registration or other qualification of such Shares under any state or federal law or ruling of any governmental body that the Company determines to be necessary or advisable. The Company will be under no obligation to register the Shares with the SEC or to effect compliance with the registration, qualification or listing requirements of any state securities laws, stock exchange or automated quotation system, and the Company will have no liability for any inability or failure to do so.

     14. NO OBLIGATION TO EMPLOY. Nothing in this Plan or any Award granted under this Plan will confer or be deemed to confer on any Participant any right to continue in the employ of, or to continue any other relationship with, the Company or any Parent or Subsidiary of the Company or limit in any way the right of the Company or any Parent or Subsidiary of the Company to terminate Participant’s employment or other relationship at any time, with or without cause.

     15. CORPORATE TRANSACTIONS.

          15.1 Assumption or Replacement of Awards by Successor. In the event of (a) a dissolution or liquidation of the Company, (b) a merger or consolidation in which the Company is not the surviving corporation (other than a merger or consolidation with a wholly-owned subsidiary, a reincorporation of the Company in a different jurisdiction, or other transaction in which there is no substantial change in the shareholders of the Company or their relative share holdings and the Awards granted under this Plan are assumed, converted or replaced by the successor corporation, which assumption will be binding on all Participants), (c) a merger in which the Company is the surviving corporation but after which the shareholders of the Company immediately prior to such merger (other than any shareholder that merges, or which owns or controls another corporation that merges, with the Company in such merger) cease to own their shares or other equity interest in the Company, (d) the sale of substantially all of the assets of the Company, or (e) the acquisition, sale, or transfer of more than 50% of the outstanding shares of the Company by tender offer or similar transaction (each, a “CORPORATE TRANSACTION”), each Option which is at the time outstanding under this Plan shall automatically accelerate so that each such Option shall, immediately prior to the specified effective date for the Corporate Transaction, become fully exercisable with respect to the total number of Shares at the time subject to such Option and may be exercised for all or any portion of such Shares. However, subject to the specific terms of a Participant’s Award Agreement, an outstanding Option under this Plan shall not so accelerate if and to the extent: (i) such Option is, in connection with the Corporate Transaction, either to be assumed by the successor corporation or parent thereof or to be replaced with a comparable Option to purchase shares of the capital share of the successor corporation or parent thereof, (ii) such Option is to be replaced with a cash incentive program of the successor corporation which preserves the Option spread existing at the time of the Corporate Transaction and provides for subsequent payout in accordance with the same vesting schedule applicable to such

Option or (iii) the acceleration of such Option is subject to other limitations imposed by the Committee at the time of the Option grant. The determination of Option comparability under clause (i) above shall be made by the Committee, and its determination shall be final, binding and conclusive.

          15.2 Other Treatment of Awards. Subject to any greater rights granted to Participants under the foregoing provisions of this Section 15 or other specific terms of a Participant’s Award Agreement, in the event of the occurrence of any Corporate Transaction described in Section 15.1, any outstanding Awards will be treated as provided in the applicable agreement or plan of merger, consolidation, dissolution, liquidation, or sale of assets.

          15.3 Assumption of Awards by the Company. The Company, from time to time, also may substitute or assume outstanding awards granted by another company, whether in connection with an acquisition of such other company or otherwise, by either; (a) granting an Award under this Plan in substitution of such other company’s award; or (b) assuming such award as if it had been granted under this Plan if the terms of such assumed award could be applied to an Award granted under this Plan. Such substitution or assumption will be permissible if the holder of the substituted or assumed award would have been eligible to be granted an Award under this Plan if the other company had applied the rules of this Plan to such grant. In the event the Company assumes an award granted by another company, the terms and conditions of such award will remain unchanged (except that the Exercise Price and the number and nature of Shares issuable upon exercise of any such Option will be adjusted appropriately pursuant to Section 424(a) of the Code). In the event the Company elects to grant a new Option rather than assuming an existing Option, such new Option may be granted with a similarly adjusted Exercise Price.

     16. ADOPTION. This Plan will become effective on the date on which the Board adopts the Plan (the “EFFECTIVE DATE”).

     17. TERM OF PLAN/GOVERNING LAW. Unless earlier terminated as provided herein, this Plan will terminate ten (10) years from the date this Plan is adopted by the Board. This Plan and all agreements thereunder shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California.

     18. AMENDMENT OR TERMINATION OF PLAN. The Board has complete and exclusive power and authority to amend or modify the Plan (or any component thereof) in any or all respects whatsoever. However, no such amendment or modification shall adversely affect rights and obligations with respect to Awards at the time outstanding under the Plan, unless the Participant consents to such amendment.

          The Board may at any time terminate or amend this Plan in any respect, including without limitation amendment of any form of Award Agreement or instrument to be executed pursuant to this Plan.

     19. NONEXCLUSIVITY OF THE PLAN. Neither the adoption of this Plan by the Board nor any provision of this Plan will be construed as creating any limitations on the power of the Board to adopt such additional compensation arrangements as it may deem desirable, including, without limitation, the granting of share options and bonuses otherwise than under this Plan, and such arrangements may be either generally applicable or applicable only in specific cases.

FLEXTRONICS INTERNATIONAL LTD.
2002 INTERIM INCENTIVE PLAN
SHARE OPTION AGREEMENT

          1.     Grant of Option. Flextronics International Ltd. (the “Company”) hereby grants to Participant an option (this “Option”) to purchase the total number of Shares set forth in the Notice of Grant of Stock Option (the “Notice”) as Total Option Shares at the Exercise Price Per Share set forth in the Notice (the “Exercise Price”), subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Notice and the 2002 Interim Incentive Plan (the “Plan”). Capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the Plan.

          2.     Vesting; Exercise Period.

               2.1 Vesting of Right to Exercise Option. This Option shall be exercisable as indicated in the Notice. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan, the Notice and this Agreement, this Option shall vest and become exercisable as to portions of the Shares pursuant to the Vesting Schedule specified in the Notice. If application of the vesting percentage causes a fractional share, such share shall be rounded down to the nearest whole share for each month except for the last month in such vesting period, at the end of which last month this Option shall become vested for the full remainder of the Shares. This Option shall cease to vest upon Participant’s Termination and Participant shall in no event be entitled under this Option to purchase a number of Shares greater than the Total Option Shares as set forth in the Notice.

               2.2 Expiration. This Option shall expire on the Expiration Date set forth in the Notice and must be exercised, if at all, on or before the earlier of the Expiration Date or the date on which this Option is earlier terminated in accordance with the provisions of Section 3. Provided that, in the event that this Option is assigned with respect to any Shares to a financial institution in accordance with Section 6, then the Option insofar as it relates to the Shares so assigned shall expire at the close of business on the third trading day after the date of such assignment.

          3.     Termination.

               3.1 Termination for Any Reason Except Death, Disability or Cause. If Participant is Terminated for any reason except Participant’s death, Disability or Cause, then this Option, to the extent (and only to the extent) that it is vested in accordance with the schedule set forth in the Notice on the Termination Date, may be exercised by the Participant no later than three (3) months after the Termination Date, but in any event no later than the Expiration Date.

               3.2 Termination Because of Death or Disability. If Participant is Terminated because of death or Disability of Participant (or the Participant dies within three (3) months after Termination other than for Cause or because of Disability), then this Option, to the extent that it is vested in accordance with the schedule set forth in the Notice on the Termination Date, may be exercised by Participant (or Participant’s legal representative or authorized assignee) no later than twelve (12) months after the Termination Date, but in any event no later than the Expiration Date.

               3.3 Termination for Cause. If Participant is Terminated for Cause, this Option will expire on the Participant’s Termination Date.

               3.4 No Obligation to Employ. Nothing in the Plan or this Agreement shall confer on Participant any right to continue in the employ of, or other relationship with, the Company or any Parent or Subsidiary of the Company, or limit in any way the right of the Company or any Parent or Subsidiary of the Company to terminate Participant’s employment or other relationship at any time, with or without cause.

          4.     Manner of Exercise.

               4.1 Share Option Exercise Agreement. To exercise this Option, Participant (or any assignee of Participant permitted under this Option, or in the case of exercise after Participant’s death, Participant’s executor, administrator, heir or legatee, as the case may be) must deliver to the Company an executed share option exercise agreement in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A, or in such other form as may be approved by the Company from time to time (the “Exercise Agreement”), which shall set forth, inter alia, Participant’s election to exercise this Option, the number of Shares being purchased, any restrictions imposed on the Shares and any representations, warranties and agreements regarding Participant’s investment intent and access to information as may be required by the Company to comply with applicable securities laws. If someone other than Participant exercises this Option, then such person must submit documentation reasonably acceptable to the Company that such person has the right to exercise this Option.

               4.2 Limitations on Exercise. This Option may not be exercised unless such exercise is in compliance with all applicable federal and state securities laws, as they are in effect on the date of exercise. This Option may not be exercised as to fewer than 100 Shares unless it is exercised as to all Shares as to which this Option is then exercisable.

               4.3 Payment. The Exercise Agreement shall be accompanied by full payment of the Exercise Price for the Shares being purchased in cash (by check), or where permitted by law:

 

(a)

 

by cancellation of indebtedness of the Company to the Participant;

 

 

 

 

 

(b)

 

by waiver of compensation due or accrued to Participant for services rendered;

 

 

 

 

 

(c)

 

provided that a public market for the Shares exists: (1) through a “same day sale” commitment from Participant and a broker-dealer that is a member of the National Association of Securities Dealers (an “NASD Dealer”) whereby Participant irrevocably elects to exercise this Option and to sell a portion of the Shares so purchased to pay for the Exercise Price and whereby the NASD Dealer irrevocably commits upon receipt of such Shares to forward the exercise price directly to the Company; or (2) through a “margin” commitment from Participant and an NASD Dealer whereby Participant irrevocably elects to exercise this Option and to pledge the Shares so purchased to the NASD Dealer in a margin account as security for a loan from the NASD Dealer in the amount of the Exercise Price, and whereby the NASD Dealer irrevocably commits upon receipt of such Shares to forward the Exercise Price directly to the Company; or

 

 

 

 

 

(d)

 

by any combination of the foregoing.

               4.4 Tax Withholding. Prior to the issuance of the Shares upon exercise of this Option, Participant must pay or provide for any applicable federal or state withholding obligations of the Company. If the Committee permits, and subject to compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, Participant may provide for payment of withholding taxes upon exercise of this Option by requesting that the Company withhold from the Shares to be issued that number of Shares with a Fair Market Value equal to the minimum amount of taxes required to be withheld. In such case, the Company shall only issue the net number of Shares to the Participant by deducting the Shares withheld from the Shares issuable upon exercise.

               4.5 Issuance of Shares. Provided that the Exercise Agreement and payment are in form and substance satisfactory to counsel for the Company, the Company shall issue the Shares registered in the name of Participant, Participant’s authorized assignee, or Participant’s legal representative, and shall deliver certificates representing the Shares with the appropriate legends affixed thereto.

          5.     Compliance with Laws and Regulations. The exercise of this Option and the issuance and allotment of Shares shall be subject to compliance by the Company and Participant with all applicable requirements of federal and state securities laws and with all applicable requirements of any stock exchange on

which the Shares may be listed at the time of such issuance or allotment. Participant understands that the Company is under no obligation to register or qualify the Shares with the Securities and Exchange Commission, any state securities commission or any stock exchange to effect such compliance.

          6.     Nontransferability of Option. Except as set forth in Section 9.1 of the Plan, this Option may not be transferred in any manner other than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution and may be exercised during the lifetime of Participant only by Participant. In the event that the Participant assigns this Option (but only with respect to the Shares for which the Option is then exercisable pursuant to Section 2.1) to a financial institution outside the United States and Singapore approved by the Company, the Participant shall upon such assignment deliver to the Company a Notice of Assignment in the form of Exhibit B hereto, upon receipt of which the Company may issue to the Participant a letter confirming the balance number (if any) of the Shares comprised in this Option following such assignment. The terms of this Option shall be binding upon the executors, administrators, successors and assigns of Participant.

          7.     Tax Consequences. Set forth below is a brief summary as of the Effective Date of the Plan of some of the federal and California tax consequences of exercise of the Option and disposition of the Shares. THIS SUMMARY IS NECESSARILY INCOMPLETE, AND THE TAX LAWS AND REGULATIONS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. PARTICIPANT SHOULD CONSULT A TAX ADVISER BEFORE EXERCISING THE OPTION OR DISPOSING OF THE SHARES.

               7.1 Exercise of Nonqualified Share Option. If the Option does not qualify as an ISO, there may be a regular federal and California income tax liability upon the exercise of the Option. Participant will be treated as having received compensation income (taxable at ordinary income tax rates) equal to the excess, if any, of the Fair Market Value of the Shares on the date of exercise over the Exercise Price. If Participant is a current or former employee of the Company, the Company may be required to withhold from Participant’s compensation or collect from Participant and pay to the applicable taxing authorities an amount equal to a percentage of this compensation income at the time of exercise.

               7.2 Disposition of Shares. The following tax consequences may apply upon disposition of the Shares.

                    (a) Nonqualified Share Options. If the Shares are held for more than twelve (12) months after the date of the transfer of the Shares pursuant to the exercise of an NQSO, any gain realized on disposition of the Shares will be treated as long-term capital gain.

                    (b) Withholding. The Company may be required to withhold from the Participant’s compensation or collect from the Participant and pay to the applicable taxing authorities an amount equal to a percentage of this compensation income.

          8.     Privileges of Share Ownership. Participant shall not have any of the rights of a shareholder with respect to any Shares until Participant exercises this Option and pays the Exercise Price.

          9.     Interpretation. Any dispute regarding the interpretation of this Agreement shall be submitted by Participant or the Company to the Committee for review. The resolution of such a dispute by the Committee shall be final and binding on the Company and Participant.

          10.     Entire Agreement. The Plan is incorporated herein by reference. This Agreement, the Notice, the Plan and the Exercise Agreement constitute the entire agreement and understanding of the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior understandings and agreements with respect to such subject matter.

          11.     Notices. Any notice required to be given or delivered to the Company under the terms of this Agreement shall be in writing and addressed to the Corporate Treasurer of the Company at its principal corporate offices at 2090 Fortune Drive, San Jose, California 95131. Any notice required to be given or delivered to

Participant shall be in writing and addressed to Participant at the address indicated above or to such other address as such party may designate in writing from time to time to the Company. All notices shall be deemed to have been given or delivered upon: personal delivery; three (3) days after deposit in the United States mail by certified or registered mail (return receipt requested); one (1) business day after deposit with any return receipt express courier (prepaid); or one (1) business day after transmission by fax or telecopier.

          12.     Successors and Assigns. The Company may assign any of its rights under this Agreement. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of the Company. Subject to the restrictions on transfer set forth herein, this Agreement shall be binding upon Participant and Participant’s heirs, executors, administrators, legal representatives, successors and assigns.

          13.     Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California.

          14.     Acceptance. Participant hereby acknowledges receipt of a copy of the Plan and this Agreement. Participant has read and understands the terms and provisions thereof, and accepts this Option subject to all the terms and conditions of the Plan and this Agreement. Participant acknowledges that there may be adverse tax consequences upon exercise of this Option or disposition of the Shares and that the Company has advised Participant to consult a tax advisor prior to such exercise or disposition.

          IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Company has caused this Agreement to be executed in duplicate by its duly authorized representative and Participant has executed this Agreement in duplicate as of the Date of Grant as set forth in the Notice.
