               AMENDED AND RESTATED EXECUTIVE EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT
 
This AMENDED AND RESTATED EXECUTIVE EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT (this "Agreement") is
made and entered into as of January 10, 2005 (the "Effective Date") by and among
CRICKET COMMUNICATIONS, INC., a Delaware corporation (the "Company"), LEAP
WIRELESS INTERNATIONAL, INC., a Delaware corporation (the "Parent"), and Stewart
D. Hutcheson, an individual currently residing in San Diego, California
("EXECUTIVE"). EXECUTIVE is currently employed by the Company and serves as an
officer of the Parent, the Company and various of their respective subsidiaries.
The Company is a subsidiary of the Parent. The Company, the Parent and EXECUTIVE
are hereinafter collectively referred to as the "Parties," and individually
referred to as a "Party." This Agreement amends, restates and supercedes the
Executive Employment Agreement among the Parties made and entered into as of
January 10, 2005, as amended.
 
1.    EMPLOYMENT.
 
      1.1 The Company hereby employs EXECUTIVE, and EXECUTIVE hereby accepts and
continues employment by the Company, upon the terms and conditions set forth in
this Agreement, for the period beginning on the Effective Date and ending as
provided in Paragraph 3 hereof (the "Employment Period").
 
      1.2 Commencing on February 25, 2005 and continuing during the Employment
Period, EXECUTIVE shall serve as Chief Executive Officer of the Company on a
full-time basis and shall have the normal duties, responsibility and authority
of the Chief Executive Officer of the Company, as specified by the Company's
Board of Directors from time to time. EXECUTIVE's duties to the Company shall be
those customarily assigned to an executive holding similar positions in a
comparable corporation engaged in a business similar to the business of the
Company. EXECUTIVE shall devote substantially all of his time to the activities
of the Company working from the Company's headquarters in San Diego, California,
or other business locations, subject to Company-related business travel.
EXECUTIVE shall use all reasonable commercial efforts to do and perform all
services, acts, or responsibilities necessary or advisable to carry out the job
duties of the Chief Executive Officer of the Company, as reasonably assigned by
the Board of Directors of the Company from time to time; provided, however, that
at all times during his employment EXECUTIVE shall be subject to the direction
and policies and procedures from time to time established by the Board of
Directors of the Company.
 
      1.3 Commencing on February 25, 2005 and continuing during the Employment

EXECUTIVE

shall have the normal duties, responsibilities and authority of the Chief
Executive Officer of the Parent, as specified by the Parent's Board of Directors
from time to time. Notwithstanding the provisions of Paragraph 1.2, EXECUTIVE
shall use all reasonable commercial efforts to do and perform all services,
acts, or responsibilities necessary or advisable to carry out the job duties of
Chief Executive Officer of the Parent, as reasonably assigned by the Board of
Directors of the Parent from time to time; provided, however, that at all times
during his service as Chief Executive Officer of the Parent, EXECUTIVE shall be
subject to the direction and policies and procedures from time to time
established by the Board of Directors of the Parent. EXECUTIVE's duties to the
Parent shall be those customarily assigned to an executive holding similar
positions in a comparable corporation engaged in a business similar to the
business of the Parent. In his role as Chief Executive Officer of the Parent,
EXECUTIVE shall devote such of his time as is appropriate (in light of his
position with the Company) to the activities of the Parent working from the
Parent's headquarters in San Diego, California, or other business locations,
subject to Parent-related business travel. Executive shall not receive any
compensation or benefits for such services other than the compensation and
benefits provided for in this Agreement.
 
2.    LOYAL AND CONSCIENTIOUS PERFORMANCE.
 
      2.1 During his employment with the Company, EXECUTIVE shall faithfully and
diligently devote EXECUTIVE's full business time and efforts to the performance
of his duties as the Chief Executive Officer of the Company (except as otherwise
provided in Paragraph 1.3 above and Paragraph 2.2 below), with the degree of
loyalty and care prescribed by law, provided that EXECUTIVE shall be permitted
to continue to serve on the boards of directors/trustees/advisors of Scientific
Materials, Inc. and San Diego Children's Museum, and no other boards of
directors or similar obligations, unless approved by the Parent's Board of
Directors, so long as his services do not materially and adversely affect
EXECUTIVE's ability to perform his duties hereunder as reasonably determined by
the Parent's Board of Directors. This Employment Agreement is a personal
services contract whereby the Company and Parent are engaging the services of
EXECUTIVE.
 
      2.2 The Company and the Parent agree that EXECUTIVE may devote up to three
business days per month pursuing outside business interests provided such
business interests do not compete with the Company's or the Parent's business.
 
3.    TERM OF EMPLOYMENT.
 
      3.1 EXECUTIVE shall be employed pursuant to the terms of this Agreement
for a term beginning on the Effective Date and expiring at midnight on December

bonus with respect to each calendar year (including 2004), with the amount of
such bonus to be paid to EXECUTIVE determined in accordance with the Company's
prevailing annual performance bonus practices that are used to determine annual
performance bonuses for the senior executives of the Company generally;
provided, however, that, in the event EXECUTIVE is employed by the Company on
December 31, 2008, then EXECUTIVE shall be paid any final installment of his
2008 annual performance bonus, calculated as set forth above, on the date on
which the final installments of the 2008 annual performance bonuses for senior
executives are paid, without regard to whether EXECUTIVE is then employed by the
Company.

and disability insurance policies and plans, and the like, which may be
maintained by the Company for the benefit of its executive officers.
 
            (b) Four (4) weeks of Scheduled Time Off ("STO") per year under the

executives.

from time to time with respect to travel, entertainment and other business
expenses, subject to the Company's requirements with respect to reporting and
documentation of such expenses pursuant to Company policy.

assets of the Company or shares of stock of the Company or Parent having fifty
percent (50%) or more of the voting rights of the total outstanding stock of the
Company or Parent, as the case may be, are sold with the approval of or pursuant
to the active solicitation of the Board of Directors of the Company or the Board
of Directors of the Parent, whichever is applicable, to a strategic investor
(i.e. an investor whose primary business is not financial investing) the Company
shall pay to EXECUTIVE a stay bonus in a lump sum payment in cash in an amount
equal to EXECUTIVE's Base Salary (at the annual rate then in effect) for a
period of eighteen (18) months, if the EXECUTIVE continues his Employment with
the Company (or its successor) for a two (2) month period commencing on the date

annual performance review of EXECUTIVE and a review of EXECUTIVE's compensation
and benefits relative to compensation and benefits provided to executives
holding similar positions in comparable corporations engaged in a business

Parent, the Company and EXECUTIVE agree to confer and negotiate in good faith
any appropriate adjustments to the compensation and benefits payable pursuant to
this Paragraph 4.
 
5.    TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT.
 
      5.1 EXECUTIVE's employment under this Agreement shall terminate without

all rights of EXECUTIVE to compensation hereunder shall automatically terminate
immediately upon his death, except that EXECUTIVE's heirs, personal

and accrued benefits earned up to the date of his death, including a pro rata
share of EXECUTIVE's Target Performance Bonus for the year of his death.
 
      5.2 The Company may terminate EXECUTIVE's employment under this Agreement
after thirty (30) days notice in the event that EXECUTIVE is unable to
substantially perform his duties for an aggregate period of sixty (60) days
during any 180-day period resulting from EXECUTIVE's incapacity due to a
physical or mental disability after attempts to reasonably accommodate
EXECUTIVE's disability have failed. In the event that, during the Employment
Period, EXECUTIVE's employment is terminated for disability, EXECUTIVE shall be
entitled to any unpaid portion of his salary and accrued benefits earned up to
the Date of Termination, including a pro rata share of EXECUTIVE's Target
Performance Bonus for the year in which his termination occurs.

      5.4 The Company may terminate EXECUTIVE's employment under this Agreement
other than for Cause, and EXECUTIVE may terminate his employment under this
Agreement for Good Reason (as defined in Paragraph 5.6 below). In the event
that, EXECUTIVE's employment is terminated by the Company other than for Cause,
or by EXECUTIVE for Good Reason, during the remaining Employment Period,
EXECUTIVE shall be entitled to the following:
 
            (a) EXECUTIVE shall be entitled to any unpaid portion of his salary
and accrued benefits earned up to the Date of Termination.
 
            (b) The Company shall pay EXECUTIVE (i) a severance benefit in the
form of a lump sum payment in cash in an amount equal to the EXECUTIVE's Base
Salary (at the annual rate then in effect) for a period of nine (9) months which
shall be made within thirty (30) days after the date of termination and (ii)
monthly payments for nine months commencing on the first day of the ninth month
following the date of termination equal to the EXECUTIVE's Base
 
                                      -5-
 
<PAGE>
 
Salary; provided, however, that the monthly severance benefit shall be reduced
by the amount, if any, that the EXECUTIVE receives from employment with a
subsequent employer or for services as an independent contractor during the
period during which the monthly payments are paid. Upon written request from the
Company, made not more than monthly during the period during which such monthly
payments are paid, EXECUTIVE shall furnish the Company with a statement as to
whether he is employed or acting as an independent contractor and the amount of
compensation (including salary, wages, bonuses and fees for services) therefrom;
if EXECUTIVE fails to furnish the statement within thirty (30) days of the
Company's request or furnishes a materially false statement, the Company may, in
its sole discretion, reduce or permanently discontinue any further monthly
payments under this Paragraph 5.4.2. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no payments
shall be made to EXECUTIVE under this Paragraph 5.4.2 in the event that
EXECUTIVE has been paid or is entitled to a payment under Paragraph 4.8.
 
            (c) In the event that the Date of Termination occurs on or prior to
December 31, 2005, the Company shall pay EXECUTIVE an additional lump sum
payment in cash in an amount equal to the excess (if any) of: (i) EXECUTIVE's
Target Performance Bonus for 2005, over (ii) any portion of EXECUTIVE's annual
performance bonus for 2005 already paid to EXECUTIVE. Such lump sum cash payment
shall be made within thirty (30) days after the Date of Termination and shall be
in lieu of any annual performance bonus with respect to 2005, or any remaining
installments thereof, otherwise payable under Paragraph 4.3.
 
            (d) To the extent EXECUTIVE elects continuation health care coverage
for EXECUTIVE and his eligible dependents under Section 4980B of the Internal
Revenue Code of 1986, as amended from time to time (the "Code"), and Sections
601-608 of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended from
time to time (collectively, "COBRA Coverage"), EXECUTIVE shall not-be required
to pay premiums for such COBRA Coverage for the eighteen (18) month period
commencing on the Date of Termination (or, if earlier, until EXECUTIVE is
eligible for comparable coverage with a subsequent employer).
 
            (e) EXECUTIVE shall not be required to mitigate the amount of any
payment provided for in this Paragraph 5.4 by seeking other employment or
otherwise nor, except as provided in Paragraphs 5.4.2 and 5.4.4, shall the
amount of any payment or benefit provided for in this Paragraph 5.4 be reduced
by any compensation or benefits earned by EXECUTIVE as the result of employment
by another employer or self-employment, by retirement benefits, by offset
against any amount claimed to be owed by EXECUTIVE to the Company, or otherwise.
 
      5.5 For purposes of this Paragraph 5, "Cause" shall mean termination of
EXECUTIVE's employment by the Company: (i) upon EXECUTIVE's willful failure
substantially to perform EXECUTIVE's duties with the Company (or the Parent)
(other than any such failure resulting from EXECUTIVE's incapacity due to
physical or mental illness or any such actual or anticipated failure after
EXECUTIVE's issuance of a Notice of Termination (as defined below) for Good
Reason), as reasonably determined by the Company, after a written demand for
substantial performance is delivered to EXECUTIVE by the Board of Directors of
the Company, which demand specifically identifies the manner in which the Board
of Directors of the Company believes that EXECUTIVE has not substantially
performed such duties, provided that the EXECUTIVE shall have been given a
reasonable period, not to exceed fifteen
 
                                      -6-
 
<PAGE>
 
(15) days, in which to cure such failure (provided such failure is capable of
being cured), (ii) upon EXECUTIVE's willful failure substantially to follow and
comply with the specific and lawful directives of the Board of Directors of the
Company (or the Board of Directors of the Parent) which are consistent with
EXECUTIVE's duties with the Company (or the Parent), as reasonably determined by
the Board of Directors of the Company (other than any such failure resulting
from EXECUTIVE's incapacity due to physical or mental illness or any such actual
or anticipated failure after EXECUTIVE's issuance of a Notice of Termination for
Good Reason), after a written demand for substantial performance is delivered to
EXECUTIVE by the Board of Directors of the Company, which demand specifically
identifies the manner in which the Board of Directors of the Company believes
that EXECUTIVE has not substantially performed such directives, provided that
the EXECUTIVE shall have been given a reasonable period not to exceed fifteen
(15) days in which to cure such failure (provided such failure is capable of
being cured), (iii) upon EXECUTIVE's commission of an act of fraud or dishonesty
materially impacting or involving the Company (or the Parent), or (iv) upon
EXECUTIVE's willful engagement in illegal conduct or gross misconduct.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, EXECUTIVE's employment shall not be deemed
terminated for "Cause" pursuant to this Paragraph 5.5 unless and until there
shall have been delivered to EXECUTIVE a copy of a resolution duly adopted by
the affirmative vote of not less than a majority of the entire membership of the
Board of Directors of the Company at a meeting of the Board of Directors of the
Company held within three (3) days (or such longer time period as the Board of
Directors of the Company may determine) after the Company provides the EXECUTIVE
with notice that it has determined that an event described in clauses (i)
through (iv) of this Paragraph 5.5 has occurred, at which the EXECUTIVE,
together with EXECUTIVE's counsel may be heard for a period of no more than
three (3) hours before the Company. The determination of whether the EXECUTIVE's
employment shall be terminated for "Cause" shall be made by the Board of
Directors of the Company in its sole discretion.
 
      5.6 For purposes of this Paragraph 5, "Good Reason" shall mean, without
EXECUTIVE's express written consent, the occurrence of any of the following
circumstances unless such circumstances are cured (provided such circumstances
are capable of being cured) prior to the Date of Termination specified in the
Notice of Termination given in respect thereof: (i) the continuous assignment to
EXECUTIVE of any duties materially inconsistent with EXECUTIVE's positions with
the Company (or the Parent), a significant adverse alteration in the nature or
status of EXECUTIVE's responsibilities or the conditions of EXECUTIVE's
employment with the Company (or the Parent), or any other action that results in
a material diminution in EXECUTIVE's position, authority, title, duties or
responsibilities with the Company (or the Parent); (ii) reduction of EXECUTIVE's
annual Base Salary as in effect on the Effective Date or as the same may be
increased from time to time thereafter; (iii) the relocation of the Company's
offices at which EXECUTIVE is principally employed to a location more than sixty
(60) miles from such location, but only after the EXECUTIVE has commuted for a
period of one year to the new location (with the Company bearing the reasonable
cost of such commuting); (iv) the Company's failure to pay EXECUTIVE any portion
of EXECUTIVE's current compensation; (v) the Company's failure to continue in
effect any material compensation or benefit plan in which EXECUTIVE
participates, unless an equitable arrangement (embodied in an ongoing substitute
or alternative plan) has been made with respect to such plan, or the Company's
failure to continue EXECUTIVE's participation therein (or in such substitute or
alternative plan) on the basis not materially less favorable, both in terms of
the amount of
 
                                      -7-
 
<PAGE>
 
benefits provided and the level of EXECUTIVE's participation relative to other
participants; (vi) the Company's failure to continue to provide EXECUTIVE with
benefits substantially similar in the aggregate to those enjoyed by EXECUTIVE
under any of the Company's life insurance, medical, health and accident,
disability, pension, retirement, or other benefit plans in which EXECUTIVE or
EXECUTIVE's eligible family members were participating immediately prior
thereto, or the taking of any action by the Company which would directly or
indirectly materially reduce any of such benefits; or (vii) the continuation or
repetition, after written notice of objection from EXECUTIVE, of harassing or
denigrating treatment of EXECUTIVE by the Company inconsistent with EXECUTIVE's
position with the Company or (viii) if a successor to Company does not retain
EXECUTIVE'S services for at least one year on substantially the same terms as
Sections 4.1 and 4.2 of this Agreement which includes the obligation to assume
the Company's obligations under this Agreement. EXECUTIVE's right to terminate
employment with the Company pursuant to Paragraph 5.4 shall not be affected by
EXECUTIVE's incapacity due to physical or mental illness. EXECUTIVE's continued
employment with the Company shall not constitute consent to, or a waiver of
rights with respect to, any circumstance constituting Good Reason thereunder.
The appointment or election of EXECUTIVE as Chief Executive Officer of the
Company (or the Parent) and the assignment to EXECUTIVE of the duties,
responsibilities and authority of such positions shall not constitute "Good
Reason."
 
      5.7 Any purported termination of EXECUTIVE's employment by the Company for
Cause or other than for Cause, or by EXECUTIVE for Good Reason, shall be
communicated by Notice of Termination to the other party hereto in accordance
with Paragraph 10. "Notice of Termination" shall mean a written notice that
shall indicate the specific termination provision in this Paragraph 5 relied
upon and shall set forth in reasonable detail any facts and circumstances
claimed to provide a basis for the termination of employment under the provision
so indicated.
 
      5.8 For purposes of this Paragraph 5, "Date of Termination" shall mean the
date specified in the Notice of Termination (which, in the case of a termination
by the Company for Cause may occur immediately upon giving the Notice of
Termination, and, in the case of a termination by the Company other than for
Cause, or by EXECUTIVE for Good Reason, shall not be less than fifteen (15) nor
more than sixty (60) days after the date such Notice of Termination is given),
or, if EXECUTIVE's employment terminates by reason of EXECUTIVE's death or
disability, the date of such termination.
 
      5.9 In consideration of, and as a condition to receiving, the benefits to
be provided to EXECUTIVE under this Paragraph 5 (other than any unpaid portion
of his salary and accrued benefits earned up to the Date of Termination),
EXECUTIVE (or, in the event of EXECUTIVE's death, the executor or legal
representative of his estate) shall execute and deliver to the Company and to
the Parent, the "General Release" set forth on Exhibit B hereto on or after the
Date of Termination and not later than twenty-one (21) days after the Date of
Termination (or, in the event that the termination of EXECUTIVE's employment
with the Company is in connection with an exit incentive or other employment
termination program offered to a group or class of employees, not later than
forty-five (45) days after the Date of Termination (or, if later, the date
EXECUTIVE is provided with the information required in accordance with Section
3(f) of the General Release)). In the event that EXECUTIVE fails to execute and
deliver the General Release in accordance with this Paragraph 5.9, or EXECUTIVE
revokes the General Release in accordance with the terms thereof, EXECUTIVE
shall not receive the benefits set forth in this
 
                                      -8-
 
<PAGE>
 
Paragraph 5 (other than any unpaid portion of his salary and accrued benefits
earned up to the Date of Termination).
 
      5.10 As further consideration for the benefits to be provided under this
Paragraph 5 (other than any unpaid portion of his salary and accrued benefits
earned up to the Date of Termination), EXECUTIVE hereby agrees as follows:
 
            (a) For the period commencing on the Date of Termination and
terminating on the second anniversary thereof, EXECUTIVE shall not, either on
EXECUTIVE's own account or jointly with or as a manager, agent, officer,
employee, consultant, partner, joint venturer, owner or shareholder or otherwise
on behalf of any other person, firm or corporation, directly or indirectly
solicit or attempt to solicit away from the Company, the Parent, or any of their
respective affiliates, any of their respective officers or employees or offer
employment to any person who, on or during the six (6) months immediately
preceding the date of such solicitation or offer, is or was an officer or
employee of the Company, the Parent, or any of their respective affiliates;
provided, however, that a general advertisement to which an officer or employee
of the Company, the Parent, or any of their respective affiliates, responds and
any employment resulting from such response shall in no event be deemed to
result in a breach of this Paragraph 5.10.1.
 
            (b) In the event that EXECUTIVE breaches the provisions of Paragraph
5.10.1, or threatens to do so, in addition to and without limiting or waiving
any other remedies available to the Company or the Parent in law or in equity,
the Company or the Parent shall be entitled to immediate injunctive relief in
any court having the capacity to grant such relief, to restrain such breach or
threatened breach and to enforce Paragraph 5.10.1. EXECUTIVE acknowledges that
it is impossible to measure in money the damages that the Company will sustain
in the event that EXECUTIVE breaches or threatens to breach Paragraph 5.10.1
and, in the event that the Company or the Parent institutes any action or
proceeding to enforce Paragraph 5.10.1 seeking injunctive relief, EXECUTIVE
hereby waives and agrees not to assert or use as a defense a claim or defense
that the Company or the Parent has an adequate remedy at law. Also, in addition
to any other remedies available to the Company or the Parent in law or in
equity, in the event that EXECUTIVE breaches the provisions of Paragraph 5.10.1
in any material respect, EXECUTIVE shall forfeit EXECUTIVE's right to further
benefits under Paragraph 5 and EXECUTIVE shall be obligated to repay to the
Company the benefits that EXECUTIVE has received under Paragraph 5.
 
      5.11 Notwithstanding the foregoing provision of this Paragraph 5, the
payments provided for in this Paragraph 5 (other than unpaid salary earned prior
to termination and the monthly severance payments pursuant paragraph 5.4.2)
shall be made not later than the tenth day following the date on which the
General Release by EXECUTIVE becomes irrevocable.
 
6.    PARACHUTE PAYMENT EXCISE TAX GROSS-UP.
 
      6.1 In the event that the EXECUTIVE'S employment under this Agreement is
(i) terminated by the Company other than for Cause or (ii) by the EXECUTIVE for
Good Reason, in each case within one (1) year of a Change in Control (as defined
in the Parent Plan, as in effect on the Effective Date) and it is determined
under this Paragraph 6 that any payment or benefit to EXECUTIVE or for
EXECUTIVE's benefit or on EXECUTIVE's behalf (whether
 
                                      -9-
 
<PAGE>
 
paid or payable or distributed or distributable) pursuant to the terms of this
Agreement or any other agreement, arrangement or plan with the Company or any
Affiliate (as defined below) (individually, a "Payment" and collectively, the
"Payments") would be subject to the excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of the
Code (the "Excise Tax"), then EXECUTIVE shall be entitled to receive from the
Company one or more additional payments (individually, a "Gross-Up Payment" and
collectively, the "Gross-Up Payments"), such that the net amount of the Payments
and the Gross-Up Payments retained by EXECUTIVE after the payment of all Excise
Taxes (and any interest or penalties imposed with respect to such Excise Taxes)
on the Payments, and all federal, state and local income tax, employment tax and
Excise Taxes (including any interest or penalties imposed with respect to such
taxes) on the Gross-Up Payments provided for in this Paragraph 6, shall be equal
to the Payments. For purposes of this Paragraph 6, an "Affiliate" shall mean
Parent, any successor to all or substantially all of the business and/or assets
of the Company or the Parent, any person acquiring ownership or effective
control of the Company or the Parent or ownership of a substantial portion of
the assets of the Company or the Parent, or any person whose relationship to the
Company, the Parent or such person is such as to require attribution under
Section 318(a) of the Code.
 
            (a) All determinations required to be made under this Paragraph 6,
including whether and when any Gross-Up Payment is required and the amount of
such Gross-Up Payment, and the assumptions to be utilized in arriving at such
determinations shall be made by the Accountants (as defined below) which shall
provide EXECUTIVE and the Company with detailed supporting calculations with
respect to such Gross-Up Payment within fifteen (15) business days of the
receipt of notice from EXECUTIVE or the Company that EXECUTIVE has received or
will receive a Payment. For the purposes of this Paragraph 6, the "Accountants"
shall mean the Company's independent certified public accountants serving
immediately prior to the "change in the ownership or effective control of a
corporation" or "change in the ownership of a substantial portion of the assets
of a corporation", as defined in Code Section 280G, with respect to which the
determination is being made. In the event that the Accountants are also serving
as the accountants or auditors for the individual, entity or group effecting the
"change in the ownership or effective control of a corporation" or "change in
the ownership of a substantial portion of the assets of a corporation", as
defined in Code Section 280G, with respect to which the determination is being
made, Company shall appoint another nationally recognized public accounting
firm, reasonably acceptable to the EXECUTIVE, to make the determinations
required hereunder (which accounting firm shall then be referred to as the
Accountants hereunder). All fees and expenses of the Accountants shall be borne
solely by the Company.
 
            (b) For the purposes of determining whether any of the Payments will
be subject to the Excise Tax and the amount of such Excise Tax, such Payments
shall be treated as "parachute payments" within the meaning of Section 280G of
the Code, and all "parachute payments" in excess of the "base amount" (as
defined under Section 280G(b)(3) of the Code) shall be treated as subject to the
Excise Tax, unless and except to the extent that, in the opinion of the
Accountants, such Payments (in whole or in part) either do not constitute
"parachute payments" or represent reasonable compensation for services actually
rendered (within the meaning of Section 280G(b)(4) of the Code) in excess of the
"base amount," or such "parachute payments" are otherwise not subject to such
Excise Tax.

            (c) For purposes of determining the amount of the Gross-Up Payment,
EXECUTIVE shall be deemed to pay federal income taxes at the highest applicable
marginal rate of federal income taxation for the calendar year in which the
Gross-Up Payment is to be made and to pay any applicable state and local income
taxes at the highest applicable marginal rate of taxation for the calendar year
in which the Gross-Up Payment is to be made, net of the maximum reduction in
federal income taxes which could be obtained from the deduction of such state or
local taxes if paid in such year (determined without regard to limitations on
deductions based upon the amount of EXECUTIVE's adjusted gross income); and to
have otherwise allowable deductions for federal, state and local income tax
purposes at least equal to those disallowed because of the inclusion of the
Gross-Up Payment in EXECUTIVE's adjusted gross income. To the extent
practicable, any Gross-Up Payment with respect to any Payment shall be paid by
the Company at the time EXECUTIVE is entitled to receive the Payment and in no
event will any Gross-Up Payment be paid later than five days after the receipt
by EXECUTIVE of the Accountant's determination.
 
            (d) Any determination by the Accountants shall be binding upon the
Company and EXECUTIVE. As a result of uncertainty in the application of Section
4999 of the Code at the time of the initial determination by the Accountants
hereunder, it is possible that the Gross-Up Payment made will have been an
amount less than the Company should have paid pursuant to this Paragraph 6 (the
"Underpayment"), or more than the Company should have paid pursuant to this
Paragraph 6 (the "Overpayment"). In the event that the Company exhausts its
remedies pursuant to Paragraph 6 and EXECUTIVE is required to make a payment of
any Excise Tax, the Underpayment shall be promptly paid by the Company to or for
EXECUTIVE's benefit (together with interest at the rate provided in Section
1274(b)(2)(B) of the Code. In the event it is determined that there has been an
Overpayment, the Overpayment shall be promptly paid by EXECUTIVE to the Company
(together with interest at the rate provided in Section 1274(b)(2)(B) of the
Code).
 
            (e) EXECUTIVE shall notify the Company in writing of any claim by
the Internal Revenue Service that, if successful, would require the payment by
the Company of the Gross-Up Payment. Such notification shall be given as soon as
practicable after EXECUTIVE is informed in writing of such claim and shall
apprise the Company of the nature of such claim and the date on which such claim
is requested to be paid. EXECUTIVE shall not pay such claim prior to the
expiration of the 30-day period following the date on which EXECUTIVE gives such
notice to the Company (or such shorter period ending on the date that any
payment of taxes, interest and/or penalties with respect to such claim is due).
If the Company notifies EXECUTIVE in writing prior to the expiration of such
period that it desires to contest such claim, EXECUTIVE shall: (i) give the
Company any information reasonably requested by the Company relating to such
claim; (ii) take such action in connection with contesting such claim as the
Company shall reasonably request in writing from time to time, including,
without limitation, accepting legal representation with respect to such claim by
an attorney reasonably selected by the Company; (iii) cooperate with the Company
in good faith in order to effectively contest such claim; and (iv) permit the
Company to participate in any proceedings relating to such claims; provided,
however, that the Company shall bear and pay directly all costs and expenses
(including additional interest and penalties) incurred in connection with such
contest and shall indemnify EXECUTIVE for and hold EXECUTIVE harmless from, on
an after-tax basis, any
 
                                      -11-
 
<PAGE>
 
Excise Tax or income or other taxes (including interest and penalties with
respect thereto) imposed as a result of such representation and payment of all
related costs and expenses.
 
            (f) Without limiting the foregoing provisions of this Paragraph 6,
the Company shall control all proceedings taken in connection with such contest
and, at its sole option, may pursue or forgo any and all administrative appeals,
proceedings, hearings and conferences with the taxing authority in respect of
such claim and may, at its sole option, either direct EXECUTIVE to pay the tax
claimed and sue for a refund or contest the claim in any permissible manner, and
EXECUTIVE agrees to prosecute such contest to a determination before any
administrative tribunal, in a court of initial jurisdiction and in one or more
appellate courts, as the Company shall determine; provided, however, that if the
Company directs EXECUTIVE to pay such claim and sue for a refund, the Company
shall advance the amount of such payment to EXECUTIVE, on an interest-free
basis, and shall indemnify EXECUTIVE for and hold EXECUTIVE harmless from, on an
after-tax basis, any Excise Tax or income or other taxes (including interest or
penalties with respect thereto) imposed with respect to such advance or with
respect to any imputed income with respect to such advance (including as a
result of any forgiveness by the Company of such advance); provided, further,
that any extension of the statute of limitations relating to the payment of
taxes for the taxable year of EXECUTIVE with respect to which such contested
amount is claimed to be due is limited solely to such contested amount.
Furthermore, the Company's control of the contest shall be limited to issues
with respect to which a Gross-Up Payment would be payable hereunder and
EXECUTIVE shall be entitled to settle or contest, as the case may be, any other
issue raised by the Internal Revenue Service or any other taxing authority.
 
            (g) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Paragraph 6.1,
if the EXECUTIVE terminated his employment for Good Reason, he shall, upon the
written request of the Company and reasonable advance notice, provide consulting
services to the Company (or to the Parent at the direction of the Company, or
both) for up to three (3) days per month for up to a one (1) year period
following his Date of Termination. The EXECUTIVE shall be entitled to payment by
the Company in the amount of $1,500 for each day on which he provides consulting
services pursuant to such written request from the Company. The Company and the
EXECUTIVE shall mutually use their best efforts to schedule the date or dates on
which EXECUTIVE will provide the requested consulting services so as not to
prevent EXECUTIVE from being gainfully employed by a subsequent employer, and
shall be arranged so as to reasonably accommodate EXECUTIVE's vacation or other
personal affairs. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Paragraph 6, if
EXECUTIVE refuses or otherwise fails to perform the requested consulting
services, if any, he shall forfeit his right to the payment of any Gross-Up
Payments or indemnification hereunder, and if any such Gross-Up Payments or
indemnification had previously been paid by the Company to the EXECUTIVE
hereunder, EXECUTIVE shall promptly repay such amount or amounts to the Company
within five (5) business days following the Company's written demand therefor.
 
            (h) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Paragraph 6, in
no event shall the Company's liability for Gross-Up Payments as indemnification
under this Paragraph 6 exceed one million dollars ($1,000,000).
 
                                      -12-
 
<PAGE>
 
      6.2 In the event of the termination of EXECUTIVE's employment with the
Company, any Gross-Up Payment to be made to EXECUTIVE pursuant to this Section 6
shall be made not later than the tenth day following the date on which the
General Release by EXECUTIVE becomes irrevocable (or, if later, the tenth day
following the date the "change in the ownership or effective control of a
corporation" or "change in a substantial portion of the assets of a corporation"
occurs); provided, however, if the Gross-Up Payment cannot be finally determined
on or before such day, the Company shall pay to EXECUTIVE on such day an
estimate, as determined in good faith by the Company, of the minimum amount of
such Gross Up Payment and shall pay the remainder of such Gross-Up Payment
(together with interest at the rate provided in Section 1274(b)(2)(B) of the
Code) as soon as the amount thereof can be determined but in no event later than
the thirtieth day after the Date of Termination. In the event that the amount of
the estimated Gross-Up Payment exceeds the amount subsequently determined to
have been due, such excess shall constitute a loan by the Company to EXECUTIVE,
payable on the fifth day after demand by the Company (together with interest at
the rate provided in Section 1274(b)(2)(B) of the Code).
 
7.    PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.
 
      7.1 Prior to the execution of this Agreement, EXECUTIVE executed the
Company's standard form of Invention Disclosure, Confidentiality and Proprietary
Rights Agreement which, among other matters, requires EXECUTIVE to maintain the
confidentiality of certain Company information. Such Invention Disclosure,
Confidentiality and Proprietary Rights Agreement shall remain in full force and
effect in accordance with the terms and conditions thereof.
 
      7.2 EXECUTIVE will exercise reasonable care, consistent with good business
judgment to preserve in good working order, subject to reasonable wear and tear
from authorized usage, and to prevent loss of, any equipment, instruments or
accessories of the Company in his custody for the purpose of conducting the
business of the Company. Upon request, EXECUTIVE will promptly surrender the
same to the Company at the conclusion of his employment, or if not surrendered,
EXECUTIVE will account to the Company to its reasonable satisfaction as to the
present location of all such instruments or accessories and the business purpose
for their placement at such location. At the conclusion of EXECUTIVE's
employment with the Company, he agrees to return such instruments or accessories
to the Company or to account for same to the Company's reasonable satisfaction.
 
8.    TERMINATION OF SEVERANCE BENEFITS AGREEMENT.
 
      8.1 In consideration of the execution and delivery of this Agreement by
the Company and the Parent, the Severance Agreement, dated May 30, 2003, by and
among EXECUTIVE, the Parent and the Company (the "Severance Benefits Agreement")
is hereby terminated effective as of the Effective Date. From and after the
Effective Date, EXECUTIVE waives any and all rights, claims, benefits and awards
under the Severance Agreement and releases the Parent and the Company from any
liability or obligation for any and all rights, claims, benefits or awards due

                             RESTRICTIONS ON SHARES
 
      3.1 Repurchase Option. Subject to the provisions of Section 3.2 below, if
Holder has a Termination of Employment, Termination of Directorship or
Termination of Consultancy, as applicable, before all of the Shares are released
from the Company's Repurchase Option (as defined below), the Company shall, upon
the date of such Termination (as reasonably fixed and determined by the
Company), have an irrevocable, exclusive option, but not the obligation, for a
period of sixty (60) days, commencing ninety (90) days after the date Holder has
a Termination of Employment, Termination of Directorship or Termination of
Consultancy, as applicable, to repurchase all or any portion of the Unreleased
Shares (as defined below in Section 3.3) at such

<PAGE>
 
time (the "Repurchase Option") at the original cash purchase price per share
(the "Repurchase Price"). The Repurchase Option shall lapse and terminate one
hundred fifty (150) days after Holder has a Termination of Employment,
Termination of Directorship or Termination of Consultancy, as applicable. The
Repurchase Option shall be exercisable by the Company by written notice to
Holder or Holder's executor (with a copy to the escrow agent appointed pursuant
to Section 4.1 below) and shall be exercisable, at the Company's option, by
delivery to Holder or Holder's executor with such notice of a check in the
amount of the Repurchase Price times the number of Shares to be repurchased (the
"Aggregate Repurchase Price"). Upon delivery of such notice and the payment of
the Aggregate Repurchase Price, the Company shall become the legal and
beneficial owner of the Shares being repurchased and all rights and interests
therein or relating thereto, and the Company shall have the right to retain and
transfer to its own name the number of Shares being repurchased by the Company.
In the event the Company repurchases any Shares under this Section 3.1, any
dividends or other distributions paid on such Shares and held by the escrow
agent pursuant to Section 4.1 and the Joint Escrow Instructions shall be
promptly paid by the escrow agent to the Company.
 
      3.2 Release of Shares from Repurchase Restriction. The Shares shall be
released from the Company's Repurchase Option as indicated in Exhibit B to the
Grant Notice. Any of the Shares released from the Company's Repurchase Option
shall thereupon be released from the restrictions on transfer under Section 3.4.
In the event any of the Shares are released from the Company's Repurchase
Option, any dividends or other distributions paid on such Shares and held by the
escrow agent pursuant to Section 4.1 and the Joint Escrow Instructions shall be
promptly paid by the escrow agent to the Holder.
 
      3.3 Unreleased Shares. Any of the Shares which, from time to time, have
not yet been released from the Company's Repurchase Option are referred to
herein as "Unreleased Shares."
 
      3.4 Restrictions on Transfer. Unless otherwise permitted by the
Administrator pursuant to the Plan, no Unreleased Shares or any dividends or
other distributions thereon or any interest or right therein or part thereof,
shall be liable for the debts, contracts or engagements of the Holder or his
successors in interest or shall be subject to disposition by transfer,
alienation, anticipation, pledge, encumbrance, assignment or any other means
whether such disposition be voluntary or involuntary or by operation of law by
judgment, levy, attachment, garnishment or any other legal or equitable
proceedings (including bankruptcy), and any attempted disposition thereof shall
be null and void and of no effect.
 
                                   ARTICLE IV
 
                                ESCROW OF SHARES
 
      4.1 Escrow of Shares. To insure the availability for delivery of Holder's
Unreleased Shares upon repurchase by the Company pursuant to the Repurchase
Option under Section 3.1, Holder hereby appoints the Secretary of the Company,
or any other person designated by the Administrator as escrow agent, as his or
her attorney-in-fact to assign and transfer unto the Company, such Unreleased
Shares, if any, repurchased by the Company pursuant to the Repurchase Option
pursuant to Section 3.1 and any dividends or other distributions thereon, and
 
                                      -3-
 
<PAGE>
 
shall, upon execution of this Agreement, deliver and deposit with the Secretary
of the Company, or such other person designated by the Administrator, any share
certificates representing the Unreleased Shares, together with the stock
assignment duly endorsed in blank, attached to the Grant Notice as Exhibit D to
the Grant Notice. The Unreleased Shares and stock assignment shall be held by
the Secretary of the Company, or such other person designated by the
Administrator, in escrow, pursuant to the Joint Escrow Instructions of the
Company and Holder attached as Exhibit E to the Grant Notice, until the Company
exercises its Repurchase Option as provided in Section 3.1, until such
Unreleased Shares are released from the Company's Repurchase Option, or until
such time as this Agreement no longer is in effect. Upon release of the
Unreleased Shares, the escrow agent shall deliver to Holder the certificate or
certificates representing such Shares in the escrow agent's possession belonging
to Holder in accordance with the terms of the Joint Escrow Instructions attached
as Exhibit E to the Grant Notice, and the escrow agent shall be discharged of
all further obligations hereunder; provided, however, that the escrow agent
shall nevertheless retain such certificate or certificates as escrow agent if so
required pursuant to other restrictions imposed pursuant to this Agreement. If
the Shares are held in book entry form, then such entry will reflect that the
Shares are subject to the restrictions of this Agreement. If any dividends or
other distributions are paid on the Unreleased Shares held by the escrow agent
pursuant to this Section 4.1 and the Joint Escrow Instructions, such dividends
or other distributions shall also be subject to the restrictions set forth in
this Agreement and held in escrow pending release of the Unreleased Shares with
respect to which such dividends or other distributions were paid from the
Company's Repurchase Option.
 
      4.2 Transfer of Repurchased Shares. Holder hereby authorizes and directs
the Secretary of the Company, or such other person designated by the
Administrator, to transfer the Unreleased Shares as to which the Repurchase
Option has been exercised from Holder to the Company.
 
      4.3 No Liability for Actions in Connection with Escrow. The Company, or
its designee, shall not be liable for any act it may do or omit to do with
respect to holding the Shares in escrow and while acting in good faith and in
the exercise of its judgment.
 
                                   ARTICLE V
 
                                OTHER PROVISIONS
 
      5.1 Adjustment for Stock Split. In the event of any stock dividend, stock
split, reverse stock split, recapitalization, combination, reclassification, or
similar change in the capital structure of the Company, the Administrator shall
make appropriate and equitable adjustments in the Unreleased Shares subject to
the Repurchase Option and the number of Shares, consistent with any adjustment
under Section 10.3 of the Plan. The provisions of this Agreement shall apply, to
the full extent set forth herein with respect to the Shares, to any and all
shares of capital stock or other securities which may be issued in respect of,
in exchange for, or in substitution of the Shares, and shall be appropriately
adjusted for any stock dividends, splits, reverse splits, combinations,
recapitalizations and the like occurring after the date hereof.
 
      5.2 Taxes. Holder has reviewed with Holder's own tax advisors the federal,
state, local and foreign tax consequences of this investment and the
transactions contemplated by the
 
                                      -4-
 
<PAGE>
 
Grant Notice and this Agreement. Holder is relying solely on such advisors and
not on any statements or representations of the Company or any of its agents.
Holder understands that Holder (and not the Company) shall be responsible for
Holder's own tax liability that may arise as a result of this investment or the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement. Holder understands that Holder will
recognize ordinary income for federal income tax purposes under Section 83 of
the Code. In this context, "restriction" includes the right of the Company to
repurchase the Shares pursuant to its Repurchase Option set forth in Section
3.1. Holder understands that Holder may elect to be taxed for federal income tax
purposes at the time the Shares are purchased rather than as and when the
Repurchase Option lapses by filing an election under Section 83(b) of the Code
with the Internal Revenue Service within thirty (30) days from the date of
purchase. A form of election under Section 83(b) of the Code is attached to the
Grant Notice as Exhibit F.
 
      HOLDER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT IS HOLDER'S SOLE RESPONSIBILITY AND NOT THE
COMPANY'S TO TIMELY FILE THE ELECTION UNDER SECTION 83(b), EVEN IF HOLDER
REQUESTS THE COMPANY OR ITS REPRESENTATIVES TO MAKE THIS FILING ON HOLDER'S
BEHALF
 
      5.3 Limitations Applicable to Section 16 Persons. Notwithstanding any
other provision of the Plan or this Agreement, if Holder is subject to Section
16 of the Exchange Act, the Plan, the Shares and this Agreement shall be subject
to any additional limitations set forth in any applicable exemptive rule under
Section 16 of the Exchange Act (including any amendment to Rule 16b-3 of the
Exchange Act) that are requirements for the application of such exemptive rule.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, this Agreement shall be deemed
amended to the extent necessary to conform to such applicable exemptive rule.
 
      5.4 Administration. The Administrator shall have the power to interpret
the Plan and this Agreement and to adopt such rules for the administration,
interpretation and application of the Plan as are consistent therewith and to
interpret, amend or revoke any such rules. All actions taken and all
interpretations and determinations made by the Administrator in good faith shall
be final and binding upon Holder, the Company and all other interested persons.
No member of the Administrator shall be personally liable for any action,
determination or interpretation made in good faith with respect to the Plan,
this Agreement or the Shares. In its absolute discretion, the Board may at any
time and from time to time exercise any and all rights and duties of the
Administrator under the Plan and this Agreement.
 
      5.5 Restrictive Legends and Stop-Transfer Orders.
 
            (a) Any share certificate(s) evidencing the Shares issued hereunder
shall be endorsed with the following legend and any other legend required by any
applicable federal and state securities laws:
 
      THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE SUBJECT TO A RIGHT OF
      REPURCHASE IN FAVOR OF THE COMPANY AND MAY BE TRANSFERRED ONLY IN

                                      -5-
 
<PAGE>
 
      AND THE STOCKHOLDER, A COPY OF WHICH IS ON FILE WITH THE SECRETARY OF THE
      COMPANY.
 
            (b) Holder agrees that, in order to ensure compliance with the
restrictions referred to herein, the Company may issue appropriate "stop
transfer" instructions to its transfer agent, if any, and that, if the Company
transfers its own securities, it may make appropriate notations to the same
effect in its own records.
 
            (c) The Company shall not be required: (i) to transfer on its books
any shares of Common Stock that have been sold or otherwise transferred in
violation of any of the provisions of this Agreement, or (ii) to treat as owner
of such shares of Common Stock or to accord the right to vote or pay dividends
to any purchaser or other transferee to whom such shares shall have been so
transferred.
 
      5.6 Notices. Any notice to be given under the terms of this Agreement to
the Company shall be addressed to the Company in care of the Secretary of the
Company, and any notice to be given to Holder shall be addressed to Holder at
the address given beneath Holder's signature on the Grant Notice. By a notice
given pursuant to this Section 5.6, either party may hereafter designate a
different address for notices to be given to that party. Any notice shall be
deemed duly given when sent via email or when sent by certified mail (return
receipt requested) and deposited (with postage prepaid) in a post office or
branch post office regularly maintained by the United States Postal Service.
 
      5.7 Titles. Titles are provided herein for convenience only and are not to
serve as a basis for interpretation or construction of this Agreement.
 
      5.8 Governing Law; Severability. This Agreement shall be administered,
interpreted and enforced under the laws of the State of Delaware without regard
to conflicts of laws thereof. Should any provision of this Agreement be
determined by a court of law to be illegal or unenforceable, the other
provisions shall nevertheless remain effective and shall remain enforceable.
 
      5.9 Conformity to Securities Laws. Holder acknowledges that the Plan is
intended to conform to the extent necessary with all provisions of the
Securities Act and the Exchange Act and any and all regulations and rules
promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission thereunder, and state
securities laws and regulations. Notwithstanding anything herein to the
contrary, the Plan shall be administered, and the Shares are to be issued, only
in such a manner as to conform to such laws, rules and regulations. To the
extent permitted by applicable law, the Plan and this Agreement shall be deemed
amended to the extent necessary to conform to such laws, rules and regulations.
 
      5.10 Amendments. This Agreement may not be modified, amended or terminated
except by an instrument in writing, signed by Holder and by a duly authorized
representative of the Company.
 
      5.11 No Employment Rights. If Holder is an Employee, nothing in the Plan
or this Agreement shall confer upon Holder any right to continue in the employ
of the Company or any Subsidiary or shall interfere with or restrict in any way
the rights of the Company and its
 
                                      -6-
 
<PAGE>
 
Subsidiaries, which are expressly reserved, to discharge Holder at any time for
any reason whatsoever, with or without cause, except to the extent expressly
provided otherwise in a written agreement between the Company and Holder.
 
      5.12 Successors and Assigns. The Company may assign any of its rights
under this Agreement to single or multiple assignees, and this Agreement shall
inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of the Company. Subject to
the restrictions on transfer herein set forth, this Agreement shall be binding
upon Holder and his or her heirs, executors, administrators, successors and
assigns.

The EBITDA amounts in the following examples are shown in thousands.
 
Example 1:
 
-     2005 EBITDA: [***]
 
-     2005 Net Adds: [***]
 
      PROBLEM: The net adds performance falls exactly on a specified payout
range, but performance in EBITDA falls somewhere in-between the schedule.
 
      SOLUTION: Start with the net adds payout column and use straight-line
interpolation to determine the final payout.
 
      PAYOUT CALCULATION: Net additions of [***] dictate a payout of 12.5% for
threshold EBITDA performance and 20% for target EBITDA performance. Since EBITDA
performance ([***]) is halfway between THRESHOLD and TARGET performance ([***]
and [***]), the actual payout should be halfway between the scheduled payouts of
12.5% and 20%. Thus the payout is (1/2)*(20%-12.5%)+12.5%
 
-     Payout = 16.25%
 
Example 2:
 
-     2005 EBITDA: [***]
 
-     2005 Net Adds: [***]

<PAGE>
 
      PROBLEM: Neither the net adds performance nor the EBITDA performance fall
exactly on a specified payout.
 
      SOLUTION: Use straight line interpolation for both measures. Starting with
either measure will yield the same result.
 
      PAYOUT CALCULATION: EBITDA performance ([***]) is halfway between
THRESHOLD and TARGET performance ([***]and [***]), so we can interpolate an
EBITDA-based payout schedule by finding the halfway point at each defined level
of Net Adds. At [***] net adds, the EBITDA-based payout would be halfway between
10% and 12.5%. At [***] net adds, the EBITDA-based payout would be halfway
between 12.5% and 20%. At [***] net adds, the EBITDA-based payout would be
halfway between 15% and 22.5%. Thus the interpolated, EBITDA-based payout
schedule looks like this:
 
<TABLE>
<CAPTION>
                                             2005 Net Adds
                              -------------------------------------------
                              Threshold        Target         Maximum
                                [***]           [***]          [***]
                            ------------    ------------    -------------
<S>                         <C>             <C>             <C>
             Actual            11.25%          16.25%
2005         [***]          (midpoint of    (midpoint of       18.75%
EBITDA    (midpoint of        10% and         12.5% and     (midpoint of
          [***]and [***])      12.5%)            20%)       15% and 22.5%)
</TABLE>
 
      To determine the actual payout given this range, we interpolate a payout
at [***] net adds based on the scheduled payouts at [***] and [***]. First we
determine where [***] lies in the range of [***] to [***]. The length of the
range is [***] - [***] = [***] net adds. [***] is [***] above the range minimum
([***] - [***] = [***]). So the actual performance of [***] net adds falls 1/3
of the way between [***] net adds (target) and [***] net adds (maximum). This
means the actual payout must fall 1/3 of the way between 16.25% and 18.75%. Thus
the payout is (1/3)*(18.75%-16.25%)+16.25%
 
-     Payout = 17.08%

Ladies and Gentlemen:

the undersigned (the "Escrow"), including the stock certificate and the
Assignment in Blank, in accordance with the following instructions:
 
      1. In the event the Company and/or any assignee of the Company (referred
to collectively for convenience herein as the "COMPANY") exercises the Company's
Repurchase Option as defined in the Agreement), the Company shall give to the
Holder and you a written notice specifying the number of shares of stock to be
purchased, the purchase price and the time for a closing hereunder at the
principal office of the Company. The Holder and the Company hereby irrevocably
authorize and direct you to close the transaction contemplated by such notice in
accordance with the terms of said notice.
 
      2. As of the date of closing of the repurchase indicated in such notice,
you are directed (a) to date the stock assignments necessary for the repurchase
and transfer in question, (b) to fill in the number of shares being repurchased
and transferred, and (c) to deliver the same, together with the certificate
evidencing the shares of stock to be repurchased and transferred, to the Company

      3. Holder irrevocably authorizes the Company to deposit with you any
certificates evidencing shares of stock to be held by you hereunder and any
additions and substitutions to said shares as defined in the Agreement. Holder
does hereby irrevocably constitute and appoint you as Holder's attorney-in-fact
and agent for the term of this escrow to execute with respect to such securities
all documents necessary or appropriate to make such securities negotiable and to
complete any transaction herein contemplated, including but not limited to the
filing with any applicable state blue sky authority of any required applications
for consent to, or notice of transfer of, the securities. Subject to the
provisions of this paragraph and the Agreement, Holder shall exercise all rights
and privileges of a stockholder of the Company while the stock is held by you.

      4. Upon written request of Holder, but no more than once per calendar
month, unless the Company's Repurchase Option has been exercised, you will
deliver to Holder a certificate or certificates representing so many shares of
stock as are not then subject to the Repurchase Option. Within one hundred
twenty (120) days after any voluntary or involuntary termination of Holder's
services to the Company for any or no reason, you will deliver to Holder a
certificate or certificates representing the aggregate number of shares held or
issued pursuant to the Agreement and not repurchased pursuant to the Repurchase
Option set forth in Section 3.1 of the Agreement.
 
      5. If at the time of termination of this escrow you should have in your
possession any documents, securities, or other property belonging to Holder, you

further obligations hereunder.
 
      6. Your duties hereunder may be altered, amended, modified or revoked

shall be conclusive evidence of such good faith.
 
      8. You are hereby expressly authorized to disregard any and all warnings
given by any of the parties hereto or by any other person or corporation,
excepting only orders or process of courts of law and are hereby expressly
authorized to comply with and obey orders, judgments or decrees of any court. In
case you obey or comply with any such order, judgment or decree, you shall not
be liable to any of the parties hereto or to any other person, firm or
corporation by reason of such compliance, notwithstanding any such order,
judgment or decree being subsequently reversed, modified, annulled, set aside,
vacated or found to have been entered without jurisdiction.

authorities or rights of the parties executing or delivering or purporting to

with these Joint Escrow Instructions or obligations in respect hereto, the
necessary parties hereto shall join in furnishing such instruments.

to the delivery and/or ownership or right of possession of the securities held
by you hereunder, you are authorized and directed to retain in your possession
without liability to anyone all or any part of said securities until such
disputes shall have been settled either by mutual written agreement of the
parties concerned or by a final order, decree or judgment of a court of
competent jurisdiction after the time for appeal has expired and no appeal has
been perfected, but you shall be under no duty whatsoever to institute or defend
any such proceedings.

<PAGE>
 
      4.3 Manner of Exercise. The Option, or any exercisable portion thereof,
may be exercised solely by delivery to the Secretary of the Company or the
Secretary's office of all of the following prior to the time when the Option or
such portion thereof becomes unexercisable under Section 3.3:
 
            (a) An Exercise Notice in writing signed by Holder or any other
person then entitled to exercise the Option or portion thereof, stating that the
Option or portion thereof is thereby exercised, such notice complying with all
applicable rules established by the Administrator. Such notice shall be
substantially in the form attached as Exhibit C to the Grant Notice (or such
other form as is prescribed by the Administrator); and
 
            (b) Subject to Section 6.2(d) of the Plan:
 
                  (i) Full payment (in cash or by check) for the shares with
respect to which the Option or portion thereof is exercised; or
 
                  (ii) With the consent of the Administrator, such payment may
be made, in whole or in part, through the delivery of shares of Common Stock

transfer to the Company with a Fair Market Value on the date of delivery equal
to the aggregate exercise price of the Option or exercised portion thereof; or
 
                  (iii) To the extent permitted under applicable laws, through
the delivery of a notice that Holder has placed a market sell order with a
broker with respect to shares of Common Stock then issuable upon exercise of the
Option, and that the broker has been directed to pay a sufficient portion of the
net proceeds of the sale to the Company in satisfaction of the Option exercise
price, provided, that payment of such proceeds is made to the Company upon
settlement of such sale; or
 
                  (iv) With the consent of the Administrator, any combination of
the consideration provided in the foregoing paragraphs (i), (ii) and (iii); and

entitled to exercise such Option or portion thereof, stating that the shares of
Common Stock are being acquired for Holder's own account, for investment and
without any present intention of distributing or reselling said shares or any of
them except as may be permitted under the Securities Act and then applicable
rules and regulations thereunder, and that Holder or other person then entitled
to exercise such Option or portion thereof will indemnify the Company against
and hold it free and harmless from any loss, damage, expense or liability
resulting to the Company if any sale or distribution of the shares by such
person is contrary to the representation and agreement referred to above. The
Administrator may, in its absolute discretion, take whatever additional actions
it deems appropriate to ensure the observance and performance of such
representation and agreement and to effect compliance with the Securities Act
and any other federal or state securities laws or regulations. Without limiting
the generality of the foregoing, the Administrator may require an opinion of
counsel acceptable to it to the effect that any subsequent transfer of shares
acquired on an Option exercise does not violate the Securities Act,

nonassessable. The Company shall not be required to issue or deliver any shares
of Common Stock purchased upon the exercise of the Option or portion thereof
prior to fulfillment of all of the following conditions:
 
            (a) The admission of such shares to listing on all stock exchanges
on which such Common Stock is then listed; and
 
            (b) The completion of any registration or other qualification of
such shares under any state or federal law or under rulings or regulations of
the Securities and Exchange Commission or of any other governmental regulatory
body, which the Administrator shall, in its absolute discretion, deem necessary
or advisable; and
 
            (c) The obtaining of any approval or other clearance from any state
or federal governmental agency which the Administrator shall, in its absolute
discretion, determine to be necessary or advisable; and
 
            (d) The lapse of such reasonable period of time following the

The EBITDA amounts in the following examples are shown in thousands.
 
Example 1:
 
- 2005 EBITDA: [***]
 
- 2005 Net Adds: [***]
 
      PROBLEM: The net adds performance falls exactly on a specified payout
range, but performance in EBITDA falls somewhere in-between the schedule.
 
      SOLUTION: Start with the net adds payout column and use straight-line
interpolation to determine the final payout.
 
      PAYOUT CALCULATION: Net additions of [***] dictate a payout of 12.5% for
threshold EBITDA performance and 20% for target EBITDA performance. Since EBITDA
performance ([***]) is halfway between THRESHOLD and TARGET performance ([***]
and [***]), the actual payout should be halfway between the scheduled payouts of
12.5% and 20%. Thus the payout is (1/2)*(20%-12.5%)+12.5%
 
- Payout = 16.25%
 
Example 2:
 
- 2005 EBITDA: [***]
 
- 2005 Net Adds: [***]
 
      PROBLEM: Neither the net adds performance nor the EBITDA performance fall
exactly on a specified payout.

      SOLUTION: Use straight line interpolation for both measures. Starting with
either measure will yield the same result.
 
      PAYOUT CALCULATION: EBITDA performance ([***]) is halfway between
THRESHOLD and TARGET performance ([***] and [***]), so we can interpolate an
EBITDA-based payout schedule by finding the halfway point at each defined level
of Net Adds. At [***] net adds, the EBITDA-based payout would be halfway between
10% and 12.5%. At [***] net adds, the EBITDA-based payout would be halfway
between 12.5% and 20%. At [***] net adds, the EBITDA-based payout would be
halfway between 15% and 22.5%. Thus the interpolated, EBITDA-based payout
schedule looks like this:
 
<TABLE>
<CAPTION>
                                          2005 Net Adds
                            ----------------------------------------
                             Threshold       Target       Maximum
                               [***]          [***]        [***]
                            ------------  ------------  ------------
<S>     <C>                 <C>           <C>           <C>
             Actual            11.25%         16.25%       18.75%
              [***]         (midpoint of  (midpoint of  (midpoint of
2005    (midpoint of [***]     10% and      12.5% and      15% and
EBITDA      and [***])         12.5%)         20%)          22.5%)
</TABLE>
 
      To determine the actual payout given this range, we interpolate a payout
at [***] net adds based on the scheduled payouts at [***] and [***]. First we
determine where [***] lies in the range of [***] to [***]. The length of the
range is [***] - [***] = [***] net adds. [***] is [***] above the range minimum
([***] - [***] = [***]). So the actual performance of [***] net adds falls 1/3
of the way between [***] net adds (target) and [***] net adds (maximum). This
means the actual payout must fall 1/3 of the way between 16.25% and 18.75%. Thus
the payout is (1/3)*(18.75%-16.25%)+16.25%
 
- Payout = 17.08%

      other person then entitled to purchase the shares of Common Stock issuable

      of Common Stock are being purchased, such notice complying with all
      applicable rules established by the Administrator. Such notice shall be

      issuable with respect to the vested Deferred Stock Units will indemnify
      the Company against and hold it free and harmless from any loss, damage,
      expense or liability resulting to the Company if any sale or distribution

      agreement referred to above. The Administrator may, in its absolute
      discretion, take whatever additional actions it deems appropriate to

      state securities laws or regulations. Without limiting the generality of

fractional Deferred Stock Unit, determined based on the Fair Market Value as of
the distribution date).

Units under this Agreement may be changed, except as may be provided under the
Plan.

issuable pursuant to a Deferred Stock Unit at such times and upon such events as
are specified in this Agreement only to the extent issuance under such terms

Holder under Section 409A of the Code prior to such times or the occurrence of
such events, as permitted by the Code and the regulations and other guidance
thereunder.

      3.10 Amendments. This Agreement may not be modified, amended or terminated
except by an instrument in writing, signed by Holder and by a duly authorized

      3.11 No Employment Rights. If Holder is an Employee, nothing in the Plan
or this Agreement shall confer upon Holder any right to continue in the employ
of the Company or any Subsidiary or shall interfere with or restrict in any way
the rights of the Company and its Subsidiaries, which are expressly reserved, to
discharge Holder at any time for any reason whatsoever, with or without cause,
except to the extent expressly provided otherwise in a written agreement between
the Company and Holder.
 
      3.12 Successors and Assigns. The Company may assign any of its rights
under this Agreement to single or multiple assignees, and this Agreement shall
inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of the Company. Subject to
the restrictions on transfer herein set forth, this Agreement shall be binding
upon Holder and his or her heirs, executors, administrators, successors and
assigns.
 
      3.13 Unfunded, Unsecured Obligations. The obligations of the Company under
the Plan and this Agreement shall be unfunded and unsecured, and nothing
contained herein shall be construed as providing for assets to be held in trust
or escrow or any other form of segregation of the assets of the Company for the
benefit of Holder or any other person. Holder shall have only the rights of a
general, unsecured creditor of the Company with respect to the Deferred Stock
Units, unless and until shares of Common Stock shall be distributed to Holder

delivery of the Shares to the escrow holder pursuant to Article IV, Holder shall
have all the rights of a stockholder with respect to said Shares, subject to the
restrictions herein, including the right to vote the Shares and to receive all
dividends or other distributions paid or made with respect to the Shares;
provided, however, that any and all cash dividends paid on such Shares and any
and all shares of Common Stock, capital stock or other securities received by or
distributed to Holder with respect to the Shares as a result of any stock
dividend stock split, reverse stock split, recapitalization, combination,
reclassification, or similar change in the capital structure of the Company
shall also be subject to the Repurchase Option (as defined in Section 3.1 below)
and the restrictions on transfer in Section 3.4 below until such restrictions on
the underlying Shares lapse or are removed pursuant to this Agreement.
 
                                  ARTICLE III
 
                             RESTRICTIONS ON SHARES
 
      3.1 Repurchase Option. Subject to the provisions of Section 3.2 below, if
Holder has a Termination of Employment, Termination of Directorship or
Termination of Consultancy, as applicable, before all of the Shares are released
from the Company's Repurchase Option (as defined below), the Company shall, upon
the date of such Termination (as reasonably fixed and determined by the
Company), have an irrevocable, exclusive option, but not the obligation, for a
period of sixty (60) days, commencing ninety (90) days after the date Holder has
a Termination of Employment, Termination of Directorship or Termination of
Consultancy, as applicable, to repurchase all or any portion of the Unreleased
Shares (as defined below in Section 3.3) at such time (the "Repurchase Option")
at the original cash purchase price per share (the "Repurchase Price"). The
Repurchase Option shall lapse and terminate one hundred fifty (150) days after
 
                                      -2-
<PAGE>
 
Holder has a Termination of Employment, Termination of Directorship or
Termination of Consultancy, as applicable. The Repurchase Option shall be
exercisable by the Company by written notice to Holder or Holder's executor
(with a copy to the escrow agent appointed pursuant to Section 4.1 below) and
shall be exercisable, at the Company's option, by delivery to Holder or Holder's
executor with such notice of a check in the amount of the Repurchase Price times
the number of Shares to be repurchased (the "Aggregate Repurchase Price"). Upon
delivery of such notice and the payment of the Aggregate Repurchase Price, the
Company shall become the legal and beneficial owner of the Shares being
repurchased and all rights and interests therein or relating thereto, and the
Company shall have the right to retain and transfer to its own name the number
of Shares being repurchased by the Company. In the event the Company repurchases
any Shares under this Section 3.1, any dividends or other distributions paid on
such Shares and held by the escrow agent pursuant to Section 4.1 and the Joint
Escrow Instructions shall be promptly paid by the escrow agent to the Company.
 
      3.2 Release of Shares from Repurchase Restriction. The Shares shall be
released from the Company's Repurchase Option as indicated in Exhibit B to the
Grant Notice. Any of the Shares released from the Company's Repurchase Option
shall thereupon be released from the restrictions on transfer under Section 3.4.
In the event any of the Shares are released from the Company's Repurchase
Option, any dividends or other distributions paid on such Shares and held by the
escrow agent pursuant to Section 4.1 and the Joint Escrow Instructions shall be
promptly paid by the escrow agent to the Holder.
 
      3.3 Unreleased Shares. Any of the Shares which, from time to time, have
not yet been released from the Company's Repurchase Option are referred to
herein as "Unreleased Shares."
 
      3.4 Restrictions on Transfer. Unless otherwise permitted by the
Administrator pursuant to the Plan, no Unreleased Shares or any dividends or
other distributions thereon or any interest or right therein or part thereof,
shall be liable for the debts, contracts or engagements of the Holder or his
successors in interest or shall be subject to disposition by transfer,
alienation, anticipation, pledge, encumbrance, assignment or any other means
whether such disposition be voluntary or involuntary or by operation of law by
judgment, levy, attachment, garnishment or any other legal or equitable
proceedings (including bankruptcy), and any attempted disposition thereof shall
be null and void and of no effect.
 
                                   ARTICLE IV
 
                                ESCROW OF SHARES
 
      4.1 Escrow of Shares. To insure the availability for delivery of Holder's
Unreleased Shares upon repurchase by the Company pursuant to the Repurchase
Option under Section 3.1, Holder hereby appoints the Secretary of the Company,
or any other person designated by the Administrator as escrow agent, as his or
her attorney-in-fact to assign and transfer unto the Company, such Unreleased
Shares, if any, repurchased by the Company pursuant to the Repurchase Option
pursuant to Section 3.1 and any dividends or other distributions thereon, and
shall, upon execution of this Agreement, deliver and deposit with the Secretary
of the Company, or such other person designated by the Administrator, any share
certificates representing the
 
                                      -3-
<PAGE>
 
Unreleased Shares, together with the stock assignment duly endorsed in blank,
attached to the Grant Notice as Exhibit D to the Grant Notice. The Unreleased
Shares and stock assignment shall be held by the Secretary of the Company, or
such other person designated by the Administrator, in escrow, pursuant to the
Joint Escrow Instructions of the Company and Holder attached as Exhibit E to the
Grant Notice, until the Company exercises its Repurchase Option as provided in
Section 3.1, until such Unreleased Shares are released from the Company's
Repurchase Option, or until such time as this Agreement no longer is in effect.
Upon release of the Unreleased Shares, the escrow agent shall deliver to Holder
the certificate or certificates representing such Shares in the escrow agent's
possession belonging to Holder in accordance with the terms of the Joint Escrow
Instructions attached as Exhibit E to the Grant Notice, and the escrow agent
shall be discharged of all further obligations hereunder; provided, however,
that the escrow agent shall nevertheless retain such certificate or certificates
as escrow agent if so required pursuant to other restrictions imposed pursuant
to this Agreement. If the Shares are held in book entry form, then such entry
will reflect that the Shares are subject to the restrictions of this Agreement.
If any dividends or other distributions are paid on the Unreleased Shares held
by the escrow agent pursuant to this Section 4.1 and the Joint Escrow
Instructions, such dividends or other distributions shall also be subject to the
restrictions set forth in this Agreement and held in escrow pending release of
the Unreleased Shares with respect to which such dividends or other
distributions were paid from the Company's Repurchase Option.
 
      4.2 Transfer of Repurchased Shares. Holder hereby authorizes and directs
the Secretary of the Company, or such other person designated by the
Administrator, to transfer the Unreleased Shares as to which the Repurchase
Option has been exercised from Holder to the Company.
 
      4.3 No Liability for Actions in Connection with Escrow. The Company, or
its designee, shall not be liable for any act it may do or omit to do with
respect to holding the Shares in escrow and while acting in good faith and in
the exercise of its judgment.
 
                                   ARTICLE V
 
                                OTHER PROVISIONS
 
      5.1 Adjustment for Stock Split. In the event of any stock dividend, stock
split, reverse stock split, recapitalization, combination, reclassification, or
similar change in the capital structure of the Company, the Administrator shall
make appropriate and equitable adjustments in the Unreleased Shares subject to
the Repurchase Option and the number of Shares, consistent with any adjustment
under Section 10.3 of the Plan. The provisions of this Agreement shall apply, to
the full extent set forth herein with respect to the Shares, to any and all
shares of capital stock or other securities which may be issued in respect of,
in exchange for, or in substitution of the Shares, and shall be appropriately
adjusted for any stock dividends, splits, reverse splits, combinations,
recapitalizations and the like occurring after the date hereof.
 
      5.2 Taxes. Holder has reviewed with Holder's own tax advisors the federal,
state, local and foreign tax consequences of this investment and the
transactions contemplated by the Grant Notice and this Agreement. Holder is
relying solely on such advisors and not on any statements or representations of
the Company or any of its agents. Holder understands that
 
                                      -4-
<PAGE>
 
Holder (and not the Company) shall be responsible for Holder's own tax liability
that may arise as a result of this investment or the transactions contemplated
by this Agreement. Holder understands that Holder will recognize ordinary income
for federal income tax purposes under Section 83 of the Code. In this context,
"restriction" includes the right of the Company to repurchase the Shares
pursuant to its Repurchase Option set forth in Section 3.1. Holder understands
that Holder may elect to be taxed for federal income tax purposes at the time
the Shares are purchased rather than as and when the Repurchase Option lapses by
filing an election under Section 83(b) of the Code with the Internal Revenue
Service within thirty (30) days from the date of purchase. A form of election
under Section 83(b) of the Code is attached to the Grant Notice as Exhibit F.
 
      HOLDER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT IS HOLDER'S SOLE RESPONSIBILITY AND NOT THE
COMPANY'S TO TIMELY FILE THE ELECTION UNDER SECTION 83(b), EVEN IF HOLDER
REQUESTS THE COMPANY OR ITS REPRESENTATIVES TO MAKE THIS FILING ON HOLDER'S
BEHALF
 
      5.3 Limitations Applicable to Section 16 Persons. Notwithstanding any
other provision of the Plan or this Agreement, if Holder is subject to Section
16 of the Exchange Act, the Plan, the Shares and this Agreement shall be subject
to any additional limitations set forth in any applicable exemptive rule under
Section 16 of the Exchange Act (including any amendment to Rule 16b-3 of the
Exchange Act) that are requirements for the application of such exemptive rule.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, this Agreement shall be deemed
amended to the extent necessary to conform to such applicable exemptive rule.
 
      5.4 Administration. The Administrator shall have the power to interpret
the Plan and this Agreement and to adopt such rules for the administration,
interpretation and application of the Plan as are consistent therewith and to
interpret, amend or revoke any such rules. All actions taken and all
interpretations and determinations made by the Administrator in good faith shall
be final and binding upon Holder, the Company and all other interested persons.
No member of the Administrator shall be personally liable for any action,
determination or interpretation made in good faith with respect to the Plan,
this Agreement or the Shares. In its absolute discretion, the Board may at any
time and from time to time exercise any and all rights and duties of the
Administrator under the Plan and this Agreement.
 
      5.5 Restrictive Legends and Stop-Transfer Orders.
 
            (a) Any share certificate(s) evidencing the Shares issued hereunder
shall be endorsed with the following legend and any other legend required by any
applicable federal and state securities laws:
 
      THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE SUBJECT TO A RIGHT OF
      REPURCHASE IN FAVOR OF THE COMPANY AND MAY BE TRANSFERRED ONLY IN
      ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS OF A RESTRICTED STOCK AWARD AGREEMENT BETWEEN
      THE COMPANY AND THE STOCKHOLDER, A COPY OF WHICH IS ON FILE WITH THE
      SECRETARY OF THE COMPANY.
 
                                      -5-
<PAGE>
 
            (b) Holder agrees that, in order to ensure compliance with the
restrictions referred to herein, the Company may issue appropriate "stop
transfer" instructions to its transfer agent, if any, and that, if the Company
transfers its own securities, it may make appropriate notations to the same
effect in its own records.
 
            (c) The Company shall not be required: (i) to transfer on its books
any shares of Common Stock that have been sold or otherwise transferred in
violation of any of the provisions of this Agreement, or (ii) to treat as owner
of such shares of Common Stock or to accord the right to vote or pay dividends
to any purchaser or other transferee to whom such shares shall have been so
transferred.
 
      5.6 Notices. Any notice to be given under the terms of this Agreement to
the Company shall be addressed to the Company in care of the Secretary of the
Company, and any notice to be given to Holder shall be addressed to Holder at
the address given beneath Holder's signature on the Grant Notice. By a notice
given pursuant to this Section 5.6, either party may hereafter designate a
different address for notices to be given to that party. Any notice shall be
deemed duly given when sent via email or when sent by certified mail (return
receipt requested) and deposited (with postage prepaid) in a post office or
branch post office regularly maintained by the United States Postal Service.
 
      5.7 Titles. Titles are provided herein for convenience only and are not to
serve as a basis for interpretation or construction of this Agreement.
 
      5.8 Governing Law; Severability. This Agreement shall be administered,
interpreted and enforced under the laws of the State of Delaware without regard
to conflicts of laws thereof. Should any provision of this Agreement be
determined by a court of law to be illegal or unenforceable, the other
provisions shall nevertheless remain effective and shall remain enforceable.
 
      5.9 Conformity to Securities Laws. Holder acknowledges that the Plan is
intended to conform to the extent necessary with all provisions of the
Securities Act and the Exchange Act and any and all regulations and rules
promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission thereunder, and state
securities laws and regulations. Notwithstanding anything herein to the
contrary, the Plan shall be administered, and the Shares are to be issued, only
in such a manner as to conform to such laws, rules and regulations. To the
extent permitted by applicable law, the Plan and this Agreement shall be deemed
amended to the extent necessary to conform to such laws, rules and regulations.
 
      5.10 Amendments. This Agreement may not be modified, amended or terminated
except by an instrument in writing, signed by Holder and by a duly authorized
representative of the Company.
 
      5.11 No Employment Rights. If Holder is an Employee, nothing in the Plan
or this Agreement shall confer upon Holder any right to continue in the employ
of the Company or any Subsidiary or shall interfere with or restrict in any way
the rights of the Company and its Subsidiaries, which are expressly reserved, to
discharge Holder at any time for any reason
 
                                      -6-
<PAGE>
 
whatsoever, with or without cause, except to the extent expressly provided
otherwise in a written agreement between the Company and Holder.
 
      5.12 Successors and Assigns. The Company may assign any of its rights
under this Agreement to single or multiple assignees, and this Agreement shall
inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of the Company. Subject to
the restrictions on transfer herein set forth, this Agreement shall be binding
upon Holder and his or her heirs, executors, administrators, successors and
assigns.

the Net Adds Achievement Levels set forth in paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) to
reflect the Company's changed scope of operations.
 
            (f) Adjustments for Future Changes in the Company's Business. The

applicable Performance Vesting Effective Date.
 
            (h) Definition of Fiscal Year. For purposes of this Exhibit B, the

The EBITDA amounts in the following examples are shown in thousands.
 
Example 1:
 
- 2005 EBITDA: [***]
 
- 2005 Net Adds: [***]
 
      PROBLEM: The net adds performance falls exactly on a specified payout
range, but performance in EBITDA falls somewhere in-between the schedule.
 
      SOLUTION: Start with the net adds payout column and use straight-line
interpolation to determine the final payout.
 
      PAYOUT CALCULATION: Net additions of [***] dictate a payout of 12.5% for
threshold EBITDA performance and 20% for target EBITDA performance. Since EBITDA
performance ([***]) is halfway between THRESHOLD and TARGET performance
([***] and [***]), the actual payout should be halfway between the scheduled
payouts of 12.5% and 20%. Thus the payout is (1/2)*(20%-12.5%)+12.5%
 
- Payout = 16.25%
 
Example 2:
 
- 2005 EBITDA: [***]
 
- 2005 Net Adds: [***]
 
*** Certain information on this page has been omitted and field separately with

portions.
 
                                      -7-
<PAGE>
 
      PROBLEM: Neither the net adds performance nor the EBITDA performance fall
exactly on a specified payout.
 
      SOLUTION: Use straight line interpolation for both measures. Starting with
either measure will yield the same result.
 
      PAYOUT CALCULATION: EBITDA performance ([***]) is halfway between
THRESHOLD and TARGET performance ([***] and [***]), so we can interpolate an
EBITDA-based payout schedule by finding the halfway point at each defined level
of Net Adds. At [***] net adds, the EBITDA-based payout would be halfway between
10% and 12.5%. At [***] net adds, the EBITDA-based payout would be halfway
between 12.5% and 20%. At [***] net adds, the EBITDA-based payout would be
halfway between 15% and 22.5%. Thus the interpolated, EBITDA-based payout
schedule looks like this:
 
<TABLE>
<CAPTION>
 
                                 2005 Net Adds
                                --------------------------------------------
                                 Threshold       Target          Maximum
                                 [***]           [***]           [***]
                                ------------    ------------    ------------
<S>                             <C>             <C>             <C>
 2005          Actual              11.25%          16.25%          18.75%
EBITDA         [***]            (midpoint of    (midpoint of    (midpoint of
          (midpoint of [***]      10% and          12.5% and      15% and
           and [***])              12.5%)           20%)           22.5%)
</TABLE>
 
      To determine the actual payout given this range, we interpolate a payout
at [***] net adds based on the scheduled payouts at [***] and [***]. First we
determine where [***] lies in the range of [***] to [***]. The length of the
range is [***] - [***] = [***] net adds. [***] is [***] above the range minimum
([***] - [***] = [***]). So the actual performance of [***] net adds falls 1/3
of the way between [***] net adds (target) and [***] net adds (maximum). This
means the actual payout must fall 1/3 of the way between 16.25% and 18.75%. Thus
the payout is (1/3)*(18.75%-16.25%)+16.25%
 
- Payout = 17.08%

Section 3.3, be exercised by Holder's personal representative or by any person
empowered to do so under the deceased Holder's will or under the then applicable
laws of descent and distribution.
 
      4.2 Partial Exercise. Any exercisable portion of the Option or the entire

                                      -2-
<PAGE>
 
      4.3 Manner of Exercise. The Option, or any exercisable portion thereof,
may be exercised solely by delivery to the Secretary of the Company or the
Secretary's office of all of the following prior to the time when the Option or
such portion thereof becomes unexercisable under Section 3.3:
 
            (a) An Exercise Notice in writing signed by Holder or any other
person then entitled to exercise the Option or portion thereof, stating that the
Option or portion thereof is thereby exercised, such notice complying with all
applicable rules established by the Administrator. Such notice shall be
substantially in the form attached as Exhibit C to the Grant Notice (or such
other form as is prescribed by the Administrator); and
 
            (b) Subject to Section 6.2(d) of the Plan:
 
                  (i) Full payment (in cash or by check) for the shares with
respect to which the Option or portion thereof is exercised; or
 
                  (ii) With the consent of the Administrator, such payment may
be made, in whole or in part, through the delivery of shares of Common Stock
which have been owned by Holder for at least six (6) months, duly endorsed for
transfer to the Company with a Fair Market Value on the date of delivery equal
to the aggregate exercise price of the Option or exercised portion thereof; or
 
                  (iii) To the extent permitted under applicable laws, through
the delivery of a notice that Holder has placed a market sell order with a
broker with respect to shares of Common Stock then issuable upon exercise of the
Option, and that the broker has been directed to pay a sufficient portion of the
net proceeds of the sale to the Company in satisfaction of the Option exercise
price, provided, that payment of such proceeds is made to the Company upon
settlement of such sale; or
 
                  (iv) With the consent of the Administrator, any combination of
the consideration provided in the foregoing paragraphs (i), (ii) and (iii); and
 
            (c) A bona fide written representation and agreement, in such form
as is prescribed by the Administrator, signed by Holder or the other person then
entitled to exercise such Option or portion thereof, stating that the shares of
Common Stock are being acquired for Holder's own account, for investment and
without any present intention of distributing or reselling said shares or any of
them except as may be permitted under the Securities Act and then applicable
rules and regulations thereunder, and that Holder or other person then entitled
to exercise such Option or portion thereof will indemnify the Company against
and hold it free and harmless from any loss, damage, expense or liability
resulting to the Company if any sale or distribution of the shares by such
person is contrary to the representation and agreement referred to above. The
Administrator may, in its absolute discretion, take whatever additional actions
it deems appropriate to ensure the observance and performance of such
representation and agreement and to effect compliance with the Securities Act
and any other federal or state securities laws or regulations. Without limiting
the generality of the foregoing, the Administrator may require an opinion of
counsel acceptable to it to the effect that any subsequent transfer of shares
acquired on an Option exercise does not violate the Securities Act,
 
                                      -3-
<PAGE>
 
and may issue stop-transfer orders covering such shares. Share certificates
evidencing Common Stock issued on exercise of the Option shall bear an
appropriate legend referring to the provisions of this subsection (c) and the
agreements herein. The written representation and agreement referred to in the
first sentence of this subsection (c) shall, however, not be required if the
shares to be issued pursuant to such exercise have been registered under the
Securities Act, and such registration is then effective in respect of such
shares; and
 
            (d) The receipt by the Company of full payment for such shares,
including payment of any applicable withholding tax, which in the discretion of
the Administrator may be in the form of consideration used by Holder to pay for
such shares under Section 4.3(b), subject to Section 10.4 of the Plan; and
 
            (e) In the event the Option or portion thereof shall be exercised
pursuant to Section 4.1 by any person or persons other than Holder, appropriate
proof of the right of such person or persons to exercise the Option.
 
      4.4 Conditions to Issuance of Stock Certificates. The shares of Common
Stock deliverable upon the exercise of the Option, or any portion thereof, may
be either previously authorized but unissued shares or issued shares which have
then been reacquired by the Company. Such shares shall be fully paid and
nonassessable. The Company shall not be required to issue or deliver any shares
of Common Stock purchased upon the exercise of the Option or portion thereof
prior to fulfillment of all of the following conditions:
 
            (a) The admission of such shares to listing on all stock exchanges
on which such Common Stock is then listed; and
 
            (b) The completion of any registration or other qualification of
such shares under any state or federal law or under rulings or regulations of
the Securities and Exchange Commission or of any other governmental regulatory
body, which the Administrator shall, in its absolute discretion, deem necessary
or advisable; and
 
            (c) The obtaining of any approval or other clearance from any state
or federal governmental agency which the Administrator shall, in its absolute
discretion, determine to be necessary or advisable; and
 
            (d) The lapse of such reasonable period of time following the
exercise of the Option as the Administrator may from time to time establish for
reasons of administrative convenience; and
 
            (e) The receipt by the Company of full payment for such shares,
including payment of any applicable withholding tax, which in the discretion of
the Administrator may be in the form of consideration used by the Holder to pay
for such shares under Section 4.3(b), subject to Section 10.4 of the Plan.
 
      4.5 Rights as Stockholder. Holder of the Option shall not be, nor have any
of the rights or privileges of, a stockholder of the Company in respect of any
shares purchasable upon the exercise of any part of the Option unless and until

                                OTHER PROVISIONS
 
      5.1 Administration. The Administrator shall have the power to interpret
the Plan and this Agreement and to adopt such rules for the administration,
interpretation and application of the Plan as are consistent therewith and to
interpret, amend or revoke any such rules. All actions taken and all
interpretations and determinations made by the Administrator in good faith shall
be final and binding upon Holder, the Company and all other interested persons.
No member of the Administrator shall be personally liable for any action,
determination or interpretation made in good faith with respect to the Plan,
this Agreement or the Option. In its absolute discretion, the Board may at any
time and from time to time exercise any and all rights and duties of the
Administrator under the Plan and this Agreement.
 
      5.2 Option Not Transferable.
 
            (a) Subject to Section 5.2(b), the Option may not be sold, pledged,
assigned or transferred in any manner other than by will or the laws of descent
and distribution or, subject to the consent of the Administrator, pursuant to a
DRO, unless and until the shares underlying the Option have been issued, and all
restrictions applicable to such shares have lapsed. Neither the Option nor any
interest or right therein shall be liable for the debts, contracts or
engagements of Holder or his or her successors in interest or shall be subject
to disposition by transfer, alienation, anticipation, pledge, encumbrance,
assignment or any other means whether such disposition be voluntary or
involuntary or by operation of law by judgment, levy, attachment, garnishment or
any other legal or equitable proceedings (including bankruptcy), and any
attempted disposition thereof shall be null and void and of no effect, except to
the extent that such disposition is permitted by the preceding sentence.

qualify as an Incentive Stock Option, the Option may be transferred to one or
more Permitted Transferees, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in
Section 10.1 of the Plan.
 
            (c) Unless transferred to a Permitted Transferee in accordance with
Section 5.2(b), during the lifetime of Holder, only Holder may exercise the
Option or any portion thereof unless it has been disposed of pursuant to a DRO.

the time when the Option becomes unexercisable under Section 3.3, be exercised
by Holder's personal representative or by any person empowered to do so under
the deceased Holder's will or under the then applicable laws of descent and
distribution.
 
      5.3 Restrictive Legends and Stop-Transfer Orders.

when sent via email or when sent by certified mail (return receipt requested)

The EBITDA amounts in the following examples are shown in thousands.
 
Example 1:
 
- 2005 EBITDA: [***]
 
- 2005 Net Adds: [***]
 
      PROBLEM: The net adds performance falls exactly on a specified payout
range, but performance in EBITDA falls somewhere in-between the schedule.
 
      SOLUTION: Start with the net adds payout column and use straight-line
interpolation to determine the final payout.
 
      PAYOUT CALCULATION: Net additions of [***] dictate a payout of 12.5% for
threshold EBITDA performance and 20% for target EBITDA performance. Since EBITDA
performance ([***]) is halfway between THRESHOLD and TARGET performance ([***]
and [***]), the actual payout should be halfway between the scheduled payouts of
12.5% and 20%. Thus the payout is (1/2)*(20%-12.5%)+12.5%
 
- Payout = 16.25%
 
Example 2:
 
- 2005 EBITDA: [***]
 
- 2005 Net Adds: [***]
 
      PROBLEM: Neither the net adds performance nor the EBITDA performance fall
exactly on a specified payout.

                                      -7-
<PAGE>
 
      SOLUTION: Use straight line interpolation for both measures. Starting with
either measure will yield the same result.
 
      PAYOUT CALCULATION: EBITDA performance ([***]) is halfway between
THRESHOLD and TARGET performance ([***] and [***]), so we can interpolate an
EBITDA-based payout schedule by finding the halfway point at each defined level
of Net Adds. At [***] net adds, the EBITDA-based payout would be halfway between
10% and 12.5%. At [***] net adds, the EBITDA-based payout would be halfway
between 12.5% and 20%. At [***] net adds, the EBITDA-based payout would be
halfway between 15% and 22.5%. Thus the interpolated, EBITDA-based payout
schedule looks like this:
 
<TABLE>
<CAPTION>
                                 2005 Net Adds
                                --------------------------------------------
                                 Threshold        Target           Maximum
                                 [***]            [***]            [***]
                                ------------    ------------    ------------
<S>       <C>                   <C>             <C>             <C>
2005      Actual                 11.25%          16.25%          18.75%
EBITDA    [***]                 (midpoint of    (midpoint of    (midpoint of
          (midpoint of [***]     10%and          12.5% and       15% and
           and [***])            12.5%)          20%)           22.5%)
</TABLE>
 
      To determine the actual payout given this range, we interpolate a payout
at [***] net adds based on the scheduled payouts at [***] and [***]. First we
determine where [***] lies in the range of [***] to [***]. The length of the
range is [***] - [***] = [***] net adds. [***] is [***] above the range minimum
([***] - [***] = [***]). So the actual performance of [***] net adds falls 1/3
of the way between [***] net adds (target) and [***] net adds (maximum). This
means the actual payout must fall 1/3 of the way between 16.25% and 18.75%. Thus
the payout is (1/3)*(18.75%-16.25%)+16.25%
 
- Payout = 17.08%

THIRD AMENDMENT TO AMENDED AND RESTATED
EXECUTIVE EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT

     THIS THIRD AMENDMENT TO AMENDED AND RESTATED EXECUTIVE EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT (this “Amendment”), effective as of December 31, 2008, is entered into by and among LEAP WIRELESS INTERNATIONAL, INC., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), CRICKET COMMUNICATIONS, INC., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and S. Douglas Hutcheson (“EXECUTIVE”). Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Existing Agreement (as defined below). All Paragraph, Exhibit and Attachment references in this Amendment are to Paragraphs, Exhibits and Attachments of the Existing Agreement.

     WHEREAS, Parent, the Company and EXECUTIVE are parties to that certain Amended and Restated Executive Employment Agreement, effective as of January 10, 2005, as amended by (i) that certain First Amendment to Amended and Restated Executive Employment Agreement, effective as of June 17, 2005 and (ii) that certain Second Amendment to Amended and Restated Executive Employment Agreement, effective as of February 17, 2006 (as amended, the “Existing Agreement”); and

     WHEREAS, Parent, the Company and EXECUTIVE desire to amend the Existing Agreement to (i) ensure that the benefits to be provided by the Existing Agreement comply with or are exempt from the provisions of Section 409A of the United States Internal Revenue Code, as amended and (ii) make certain other revisions to the severance benefits provided to EXECUTIVE hereunder to correspond to the terms of a certain Severance Benefit Agreement approved by Parent’s Compensation Committee in 2008 to be entered into with Parent’s officers.

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing, the parties hereby amend the Existing Agreement as follows:

     1. Paragraph 3 of the Existing Agreement. Paragraph 3 of the Existing Agreement is hereby amended and restated to read as follows:

     “3. Term of Employment.

     3.1 EXECUTIVE shall be employed pursuant to the terms of this Agreement for a term beginning on the Effective Date and expiring at midnight on December 31, 2009. The term of employment, including any extension period contemplated in Paragraph 3.2 below, shall be referred to as the “Employment Period.”

     3.2 This Agreement and EXECUTIVE’s employment hereunder may be extended for such period following December 31, 2009, and upon such terms and conditions, as shall be mutually agreed upon by the Company, Parent and EXECUTIVE and set forth in a written amendment to this Agreement; provided, however, that commencing on December 31, 2009 and on each December 31 thereafter, the term of this Agreement shall be automatically extended for one additional year unless, not later than the immediately preceding January 1, the Company or Parent shall have given notice to EXECUTIVE that the term of this Agreement shall not be further extended.

 

<hr size=2 width="100%" noshade style='color:#9D9DA1' align=center>

 

     3.3 Notwithstanding Paragraphs 3.1 and 3.2, EXECUTIVE’s employment may terminate in accordance with Paragraph 5 and, in the event of such termination, the Employment Period shall end on the Date of Termination (as defined in Paragraph 5.8 below).

     3.4 EXECUTIVE and the Company acknowledge and agree that the expiration of the term of this Agreement alone shall not constitute a termination of EXECUTIVE’s employment relationship with the Company, which shall continue on an at-will basis beyond the term of this Agreement until otherwise terminated by the Company or EXECUTIVE. If this Agreement expires without a concurrent termination of EXECUTIVE’s employment, EXECUTIVE shall not be entitled to any benefits under Paragraph 5 of this Agreement as a result of the expiration of the term of this Agreement.”

     2. Paragraph 4.8 of the Existing Agreement. Paragraph 4.8 of the Existing Agreement is hereby amended and restated to read as follows: “[Intentionally Omitted]”

     3. Paragraph 5 of the Existing Agreement. Paragraph 5 of the Existing Agreement is hereby amended and restated to read as follows:

     “5.1 Termination For Death. EXECUTIVE’s employment under this Agreement shall terminate without notice upon the date of EXECUTIVE’s death. In the event of EXECUTIVE’s death, all rights of EXECUTIVE to compensation hereunder shall automatically terminate immediately upon his death, except that EXECUTIVE’s heirs, personal representatives or estate shall be entitled to any unpaid portion of his salary and accrued benefits earned up to the date of his death, including a pro rata share of EXECUTIVE’s Target Performance Bonus for the year of his death.

     5.2 Termination For Disability. The Company may terminate EXECUTIVE’s employment under this Agreement after thirty (30) days notice in the event that EXECUTIVE is unable to substantially perform his duties for an aggregate period of sixty (60) days during any 180-day period resulting from EXECUTIVE’s incapacity due to a physical or mental disability after attempts to reasonably accommodate EXECUTIVE’s disability have failed. In the event that, during the Employment Period, EXECUTIVE’s employment is terminated for disability, EXECUTIVE shall be entitled to any unpaid portion of his salary and accrued benefits earned up to the Date of Termination, including a pro rata share of EXECUTIVE’s Target Performance Bonus for the year in which his termination occurs.

     5.3 Termination for Cause. The Company may terminate EXECUTIVE’s employment under this Agreement for Cause (as defined in Paragraph 5.5 below). In the event that EXECUTIVE’s employment is terminated by the Company for Cause during the Employment Period, EXECUTIVE shall be entitled to any unpaid portion of his salary and accrued benefits earned up to the Date of Termination.

     5.4 Termination Other Than for Cause or Resignation by EXECUTIVE. The Company may terminate EXECUTIVE’s employment under this Agreement other than for Cause and EXECUTIVE may terminate his employment under this Agreement for any reason. In the event that EXECUTIVE’s employment is terminated by the Company other than for Cause, or by EXECUTIVE for Good Reason, EXECUTIVE shall be entitled to the following:

          5.4.1 EXECUTIVE shall be entitled to any unpaid portion of his salary and accrued benefits earned up to the Date of Termination.

2

<hr size=2 width="100%" noshade style='color:#9D9DA1' align=center>

 

          5.4.2 The Company shall pay to EXECUTIVE, following the date of his termination of employment and in accordance with Paragraph 5.11, a lump sum severance benefit in cash in the amount equal to (a) two (2) times the sum of (i) EXECUTIVE’S Base Salary and (ii) EXECUTIVE’s annual Target Performance Bonus plus (b) if none of the health benefits provided by Parent or the Company (or any parent, subsidiary or successor thereof) to EXECUTIVE are self-funded as of the date of EXECUTIVE’s Date of Termination, an amount equal to six (6) multiplied by the monthly premium EXECUTIVE would be required to pay for continued COBRA Coverage (as defined below) for EXECUTIVE and his eligible dependents (calculated by reference to the premium as of the date of EXECUTIVE’s Date of Termination).

          5.4.3. To the extent EXECUTIVE elects continuation health care coverage for EXECUTIVE and his eligible dependents under Section 4980B of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended from time to time (the “Code”), and Sections 601-608 of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended from time to time (collectively, “COBRA Coverage”), EXECUTIVE shall not-be required to pay premiums for such COBRA Coverage for the eighteen (18) month period commencing on the Date of Termination (or, if earlier, until EXECUTIVE is eligible for comparable coverage with a subsequent employer). The COBRA Coverage shall be provided in reliance on the exemption from Section 409A of the Code under Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-1(a)(5).

          If any of the health benefits provided by Parent or the Company (or any parent, subsidiary or successor thereof) to EXECUTIVE are self-funded as of the date of EXECUTIVE’s Date of Termination, instead of providing health insurance benefits as set forth above, the Company shall instead elect to either: (i) pay to EXECUTIVE a lump sum payment in amount equal to twenty-four (24) multiplied by the monthly premium EXECUTIVE would be required to pay for continued COBRA Coverage for himself and his eligible dependents (calculated by reference to the premium as of the Date of Termination) (the “COBRA Payment”), grossed-up for applicable taxes, with such amount to be paid to EXECUTIVE following the Date of Termination and in accordance with Paragraph 5.11; or (ii) withhold the amount of the COBRA Payment and apply such amount, on an after-tax basis, to EXECUTIVE’s premiums for COBRA Coverage for the twenty-four (24) months following the Date of Termination, without regard to whether EXECUTIVE receives COBRA Coverage for the entire period, with such amount to be reported on EXECUTIVE’s Form W-2. Any tax gross-up pursuant to this Paragraph 5.4.3 shall be paid in accordance with Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-3(i)(1)(v).

          5.4.4. EXECUTIVE shall not be required to mitigate the amount of any payment provided for in this Paragraph 5.4 by seeking other employment or otherwise nor, except as provided in Paragraph 5.4.3, shall the amount of any payment or benefit provided for in this Paragraph 5.4 be reduced by any compensation or benefits earned by EXECUTIVE as the result of employment by another employer or self-employment, by retirement benefits, by offset against any amount claimed to be owed by EXECUTIVE to the Company, or otherwise.

     5.5 Definition of “Cause”. For purposes of this Paragraph 5, “Cause” shall mean any one or more of the following occurrences:

          5.5.1 EXECUTIVE’s material breach of any provision of the Invention Disclosure, Confidentiality and Proprietary Rights Agreement or any other agreement between EXECUTIVE and the Company (or any parent or subsidiary of the Company or any successor thereof), after a written notice from the Company is delivered to EXECUTIVE describing EXECUTIVE’s breach and EXECUTIVE is afforded a period of at least thirty (30) days to correct the breach and fails to do so within such period;

3

<hr size=2 width="100%" noshade style='color:#9D9DA1' align=center>

 

          5.5.2 EXECUTIVE’S conviction by, or entry of a plea of guilty or nolo contendere in, a court of competent and final jurisdiction for (i) any felony, or (ii) other illegal conduct (other than minor traffic violations) that is likely to inflict or has inflicted material injury on the business of the Company (or any parent or subsidiary of the Company or any successor thereof);

          5.5.3 EXECUTIVE’S commission of an act of fraud, embezzlement or dishonesty, whether prior to or subsequent to the date hereof upon the Company (or any parent or subsidiary of the Company or any successor thereof);

          5.5.4 EXECUTIVE’S willful neglect of or willful failure to substantially perform (i) EXECUTIVE’S duties with the Company (or any parent or subsidiary of the Company or any successor thereof) or (ii) the lawful and reasonable directions of the Board of Directors of the Company (or any parent or subsidiary of the Company or any successor thereof which employs EXECUTIVE or for which EXECUTIVE serves as an officer) (other than any such neglect or failure occurring after EXECUTIVE’S issuance of a Notice of Termination for Good Reason), after a written notice from the Company is delivered to EXECUTIVE describing EXECUTIVE’S neglect or failure to perform and EXECUTIVE is afforded a period of at least thirty (30) days to correct the neglect or failure to perform and fails to do so within such period; or

          5.5.5 EXECUTIVE’S gross misconduct affecting or material violation of any duty of loyalty to the Company (or any parent or subsidiary of the Company or any successor thereof).

          Notwithstanding the foregoing, EXECUTIVE’s employment shall not be deemed terminated for “Cause” pursuant to this Paragraph 5.5 unless and until there shall have been delivered to EXECUTIVE a copy of a resolution duly adopted by the affirmative vote of not less than a majority of the entire membership of the Board of Directors of the Company or Parent at a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Company or Parent held within three (3) days (or such longer time period as the Board of Directors of the Company or Parent may determine) after the Company or Parent provides EXECUTIVE with notice that it has determined that an event described in this Paragraph 5.5 has occurred, at which EXECUTIVE, together with EXECUTIVE’s counsel may be heard for a period of no more than three (3) hours before the Company or Parent. The determination of whether the EXECUTIVE’s employment shall be terminated for “Cause” shall be made by the Board of Directors of the Company or Parent in its sole discretion.

     5.6 Definition of “Good Reason”. For purposes of this Paragraph 5, “Good Reason” shall mean, without EXECUTIVE’s express written consent, the occurrence of any of the following circumstances:

          5.6.1 a material diminution in EXECUTIVE’s authority, duties or responsibilities with the Company (or any parent or subsidiary of the Company or any successor thereof), including, without limitation, the continuous assignment to EXECUTIVE of any duties materially inconsistent with EXECUTIVE’s position with the Company (or any parent or subsidiary of the Company or any successor thereof), a material negative change in the nature or status of EXECUTIVE’s responsibilities or the conditions of EXECUTIVE’s employment with the Company (or any parent or subsidiary of the Company or any successor thereof);

4

<hr size=2 width="100%" noshade style='color:#9D9DA1' align=center>

 

          5.6.2 a material diminution in EXECUTIVE’s annualized cash and benefits compensation opportunity, which shall include EXECUTIVE’s base compensation, EXECUTIVE’s annual Target Performance Bonus opportunity and EXECUTIVE’s aggregate employee benefits, as in effect on the Effective Date as the same may be increased from time to time thereafter;

          5.6.3 a material change in the geographic location at which EXECUTIVE must perform his duties (and the Company and EXECUTIVE agree that any involuntary relocation of the Company’s offices (or the offices of any parent or subsidiary of the Company or any successor thereof) at which EXECUTIVE is principally employed to a location more than sixty (60) miles from such location would constitute a material change); or

          5.6.4 any other action or inaction that constitutes a material breach by the Company (or any parent or subsidiary of the Company or any successor thereof) of its obligations to EXECUTIVE under this Agreement.

          EXECUTIVE’s right to terminate employment with the Company (or any parent or subsidiary of the Company or any successor thereof) pursuant to this Paragraph 5.6 shall not be affected by EXECUTIVE’s incapacity due to physical or mental illness. EXECUTIVE’s continued employment with the Company (or any parent or subsidiary of the Company or any successor thereof) shall not constitute consent to, or a waiver of rights with respect to, any circumstance constituting Good Reason hereunder.

          EXECUTIVE must provide written notice to the Company of the occurrence of any of the foregoing events or conditions without EXECUTIVE’s written consent within ninety (90) days of the initial occurrence of such event or condition. The Company (or any parent or subsidiary of the Company or any successor thereof) shall have a period of thirty (30) days to cure such event or condition after receipt of written notice of such event or condition from EXECUTIVE. EXECUTIVE’s termination of employment by reason of resignation from employment with the Company for Good Reason must occur within one (1) year following the initial existence of the event or condition constituting Good Reason.

     5.7 Notice of Termination. Any purported termination of EXECUTIVE’s employment by the Company for Cause or other than for Cause, or by EXECUTIVE for Good Reason, shall be communicated by Notice of Termination to the other party hereto in accordance with Paragraph 10. “Notice of Termination” shall mean a written notice that shall indicate the specific termination provision in this Paragraph 5 relied upon and shall set forth in reasonable detail any facts and circumstances claimed to provide a basis for the termination of employment under the provision so indicated.

     5.8 Definition of “Date of Termination”. For purposes of this Paragraph 5, “Date of Termination” shall mean the date of EXECUTIVE’s termination of employment.

     5.9 Delivery of Release. In consideration of, and as a condition to receiving, the benefits to be provided to EXECUTIVE under this Paragraph 5 (other than any unpaid portion of his salary and accrued benefits earned up to the Date of Termination), EXECUTIVE (or, in the event of EXECUTIVE’s death, the executor or legal representative of his estate) shall execute and deliver to the Company and to Parent, the “General Release” set forth on Exhibit B hereto on or after the Date of Termination and not later than twenty-one (21) days after the Date of Termination (or, in the event that the termination of EXECUTIVE’s employment with the Company is in connection with an exit incentive or other employment termination program

5

<hr size=2 width="100%" noshade style='color:#9D9DA1' align=center>

 

offered to a group or class of employees, not later than forty-five (45) days after the Date of Termination (or, if later, the date EXECUTIVE is provided with the information required in accordance with Section 3(f) of the General Release)). In the event that EXECUTIVE fails to execute and deliver the General Release in accordance with this Paragraph 5.9, or EXECUTIVE revokes the General Release in accordance with the terms thereof, EXECUTIVE shall not receive the benefits set forth in this Paragraph 5 (other than any unpaid portion of his salary and accrued benefits earned up to the Date of Termination).

     5.10 Further Agreements. As further consideration for the benefits to be provided under this Paragraph 5 (other than any unpaid portion of his salary and accrued benefits earned up to the Date of Termination), EXECUTIVE hereby agrees as follows:

          5.10.1 Confidentiality. For the period of three (3) years commencing on the Date of Termination, EXECUTIVE shall not, directly or indirectly, disclose or make available to any person, firm, corporation, association or other entity for any reason or purpose whatsoever, any Confidential Information (as defined below). EXECUTIVE agrees that, upon termination of EXECUTIVE’s employment with the Company, all Confidential Information in EXECUTIVE’s possession that is in writing or other tangible form (together with all copies or duplicates thereof, including computer files) shall be returned to the Company and shall not be retained by EXECUTIVE or furnished to any third party, in any form except as provided herein; provided, however, that EXECUTIVE shall not be obligated to treat as confidential, or return to the Company copies of any Confidential Information that (i) was publicly known at the time of disclosure to EXECUTIVE, (ii) becomes publicly known or available thereafter other than by any means in violation of this Agreement or any other duty owed to the Company, Parent or any of their respective affiliates by any person or entity, or (iii) is lawfully disclosed to EXECUTIVE by a third party. As used in this Agreement, the term “Confidential Information” means: information disclosed to EXECUTIVE or known by EXECUTIVE as a consequence of or through EXECUTIVE’s relationship with the Company, about the customers, employees, business methods, technical operations, public relations methods, organization, procedures or finances, including, without limitation, information of or relating to customer lists, of Parent, the Company and their respective affiliates.

          5.10.2 Non-Solicitation. For the period commencing on the Date of Termination and terminating on the third (3rd) anniversary thereof, EXECUTIVE shall not, either on EXECUTIVE’s own account or jointly with or as a manager, agent, officer, employee, consultant, partner, joint venturer, owner or shareholder or otherwise on behalf of any other person, firm or corporation, directly or indirectly solicit or attempt to solicit away from the Company, Parent, or any of their respective affiliates, any of their respective officers or employees or offer employment to any person who, on or during the six (6) months immediately preceding the date of such solicitation or offer, is or was an officer or employee of the Company, Parent, or any of their respective affiliates; provided, however, that a general advertisement to which an officer or employee of the Company, Parent, or any of their respective affiliates, responds and any employment resulting from such response shall in no event be deemed to result in a breach of this Paragraph 5.10.2.

          5.10.3 Breach of Covenants. In the event that EXECUTIVE breaches any of the provisions of this Paragraph 5.10, or threatens to do so, in addition to and without limiting or waiving any other remedies available to the Company or Parent in law or in equity, the Company or Parent shall be entitled to immediate injunctive relief in any court having the capacity to grant such relief, to restrain such breach or threatened breach and to enforce Paragraph 5.10. EXECUTIVE acknowledges that it is impossible to measure in money the damages that the Company will sustain

6

<hr size=2 width="100%" noshade style='color:#9D9DA1' align=center>

 

in the event that EXECUTIVE breaches or threatens to breach Paragraph 5.10 and, in the event that the Company or Parent institutes any action or proceeding to enforce Paragraph 5.10 seeking injunctive relief, EXECUTIVE hereby waives and agrees not to assert or use as a defense a claim or defense that the Company or Parent has an adequate remedy at law. Also, in addition to any other remedies available to the Company or Parent in law or in equity, in the event that EXECUTIVE breaches the provisions of Paragraph 5.10 in any material respect, EXECUTIVE shall forfeit EXECUTIVE’s right to further benefits under Paragraph 5 and EXECUTIVE shall be obligated to repay to the Company the benefits that EXECUTIVE has received under Paragraph 5. If a court or arbitrator shall hold that the duration, scope or area restriction or other provision of this Paragraph 5.10 is unreasonable under the circumstances now or then existing, the parties hereto agree that the maximum duration, scope or area restriction reasonable under the circumstances shall be substituted for the stated duration, scope or area restriction.

     5.11 Timing of Payments. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Paragraph 5, the payments provided for in Paragraph 5.1, Paragraph 5.2, Paragraph 5.4.2 and Paragraph 5.4.3 (if applicable) (other than unpaid salary earned prior to termination) shall be made no later than the tenth (10th) day following the date on which the General Release by EXECUTIVE (or, in the event of EXECUTIVE’S death, the executor or legal representative of his estate) becomes irrevocable. In the event that EXECUTIVE fails to execute and deliver to the Company and Parent the General Release in accordance with Paragraph 5.9 within fifty-five (55) days following the Date of Termination, or EXECUTIVE revokes the General Release in accordance with the terms thereof, EXECUTIVE shall not be entitled to receive the severance benefits set forth in Paragraph 5.4 and the Company shall have no obligation to provide such benefits.”

     4. Paragraph 6 of the Existing Agreement.

          (a) The last sentences of Paragraphs 6.1.3 and 6.1.4 and the last sentence of Paragraph 6.2 of the Existing Agreement are hereby deleted.

          (b) A new Paragraph 6.3 is hereby added to the Existing Agreement as follows:

     “6.3 The Gross-Up Payments shall be paid in accordance with Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-3(i)(1)(v). Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Paragraph 6, in no event shall the Company’s liability for Gross-Up Payments under this Paragraph 6 exceed the amount of the “tax gross-up payment” on any Payment permitted under Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-3(i)(1)(v). Interest and penalties with respect to any Gross-Up Payment or that are otherwise incurred by the Company on EXECUTIVE’s behalf or required to be paid by the Company under this Paragraph 6 shall be paid to EXECUTIVE or on EXECUTIVE’s behalf only to the extent permitted under Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-3(i)(1)(v).

     5. Paragraph 9.1 of the Existing Agreement. Paragraph 9.1 of the Existing Agreement is hereby amended and restated to read as follows:

     “9.1 This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of EXECUTIVE and EXECUTIVE’s heirs, executors, administrators, estate, beneficiaries, and legal representatives. Neither this Agreement nor any rights or obligations under this Agreement shall be assignable by either party without the prior express written consent of the other party; provided, however, that the Company may assign this Agreement and its rights and obligations hereunder to any successor in interest to the Company. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Company and its successors, assigns and legal representatives. Parent and the Company will require any successor (whether direct or indirect, by purchase, merger or otherwise) to all or substantially all of the business or assets of Parent or the Company expressly to assume and to agree to perform this Agreement in the same manner and to the same extent that Parent and the Company would be required to perform it if no such succession had taken place; provided, however, that no such assumption shall relieve Parent and the Company of their obligations hereunder. The failure of Parent and the Company to do so shall be considered a material breach of this Agreement. As used in this Agreement, the “Parent” and the “Company” shall mean Parent and the Company, respectively, as hereinbefore defined and any successor to their respective business and/or assets as aforesaid.”

     6. Paragraph 19 of the Existing Agreement. Paragraph 19 of the Existing Agreement is hereby amended and restated to read as follows:

     “19. Arbitration. Except as set forth in Paragraph 5.10.3, any dispute, claim or controversy based on, arising out of or relating to EXECUTIVE’s employment or this Agreement shall be settled by final and binding arbitration in San Diego County, California, before a single neutral arbitrator in accordance with the National Rules for the Resolution of Employment Disputes (the “Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Arbitration may be compelled pursuant to the California Arbitration Act (Code of Civil Procedure §§ 1280 et seq.). If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator, one shall be appointed by the AAA in accordance with its Rules. Each party shall pay the fees of its own attorneys, the expenses of its witnesses and all other expenses connected with presenting its case; provided that the Company shall pay to EXECUTIVE all reasonable arbitration expenses and legal fees incurred by EXECUTIVE if EXECUTIVE prevails in enforcing or obtaining his rights or benefits provided by this Agreement. Such payments shall be made within five (5) days after EXECUTIVE’s request for payment accompanied with evidence of fees and expenses incurred as the Company may reasonably request, but in no event later than the last day of the EXECUTIVE’s taxable year following the taxable year in which the fees, costs and expenses were incurred; provided, however, that the parties’ obligations pursuant to this sentence shall terminate on the 10th anniversary of the date of EXECUTIVE’s termination of employment. Other costs of the arbitration, including the cost of any record or transcripts of the arbitration, AAA’s administrative fees, the fee of the arbitrator, and all other fees and costs, shall be borne by the Company and Parent. Except as set forth in Paragraph 5.10.3, this Paragraph 19 is intended to be the exclusive method for resolving any and all claims by the parties against each other for payment of damages under this Agreement or relating to EXECUTIVE’s employment; provided, however, that neither this Agreement nor the submission to arbitration shall limit the parties’ right to seek provisional relief, including without limitation injunctive relief, in any court of competent jurisdiction pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure § 1281.8 or any similar statute of an applicable jurisdiction. Seeking any such relief shall not be deemed to be a waiver of such party’s right to compel arbitration. EXECUTIVE, the Company and Parent expressly waive their right to a jury

     7. Addition of New Paragraph 20 to the Existing Agreement. A new Paragraph 20 is hereby added to the Existing Agreement as follows:

     20.2 Delayed Distribution under Section 409A of the Code. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, to the extent any of the amounts payable to EXECUTIVE under Paragraph 5.4 are treated as non-qualified deferred compensation subject to Section 409A of the Code, then (a) no portion of such amounts shall be payable to EXECUTIVE unless EXECUTIVE’s termination of employment constitutes a Separation from Service, and (b) if EXECUTIVE is a Specified Employee (as defined in Paragraph 20.7 below) on the date of EXECUTIVE’s Separation from Service, and the delayed payment or distribution of all or any portion of such amounts to which EXECUTIVE is entitled under Paragraph 5.4 is required in order to avoid a prohibited distribution under Section 409A(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Code, then such portion shall be paid or distributed to EXECUTIVE during the thirty (30) day period commencing on the earlier of (i) the expiration of the six (6)-month period measured from the date of EXECUTIVE’s Separation from Service or (ii) the date of EXECUTIVE’s death. Upon the expiration of the applicable six (6) month period under Section 409A(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Code, all payments deferred pursuant to this Paragraph 20.2 shall be paid in a lump sum payment to EXECUTIVE. Any remaining payments due under the Agreement shall be paid as otherwise provided herein.

     20.3 Transition Relief. As provided in Internal Revenue Service Notice 2006-79 and 2007-86, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, (a) with respect to an election or amendment to change a time and form of payment under this Agreement made on or after January 1, 2006 and on or before December 31, 2006, the election or amendment may apply only to amounts that would not otherwise be payable in 2006 and may not cause an amount to be paid in 2006 that would not otherwise be payable in 2006, (b) with respect to an election or amendment to change a time and form of payment under this Agreement made on or after January 1, 2007 and on or before December 31, 2007, the election or amendment may apply only to amounts that would not otherwise be payable in 2007 and may not cause an amount to be paid in 2007 that would not otherwise be payable in 2007, and (c) with respect to an election or amendment to change a time and form of payment under this Agreement made on or after January 1, 2008 and on or before December 31, 2008, the election or amendment may apply only to amounts that would not otherwise be payable in 2008 and may not cause an amount to be paid in 2008 that would not otherwise be payable in 2008.
