3. AWARDS AVAILABLE UNDER THE PLAN

The Administrator may grant Nonstatutory Stock Options, Incentive Stock Options, Restricted Stock, Restricted Stock Units, SARs, Performance Share Units and Deferred Stock under the Plan.

4. SHARES RESERVED UNDER PLAN

(a) The aggregate number of Shares which may be issued under the Plan pursuant to the exercise or grant of Awards shall not exceed 4,500,000 Shares, which may be treasury Shares or authorized but unissued Shares, or a combination of the two, subject to adjustment as provided in Paragraph 13 hereof. For purposes of determining the maximum number of Shares available for issuance under the Plan, (1) any Shares which have been issued as Restricted Stock which are forfeited to the Company shall be treated, following such forfeiture, as Shares which have not been issued; and (2) upon the exercise of an SAR granted under the Plan, the full number of SARs exercised at such time shall be treated as Shares issued under the Plan, notwithstanding that a lesser amount of Shares or cash representing Shares may have been actually issued or paid upon such exercise.

7


the Plan shall not exceed 800,000 (subject to adjustment as provided in Paragraph 13 hereof). For purposes of determining the maximum number of these types of Awards available for grant under the Plan, any shares of Restricted Stock or Deferred Stock which are forfeited to the Company, or any Restricted Stock Units or Performance Share Units which are forfeited to the Company, shall be treated, following such forfeiture, as Awards that have not been granted under the Plan.

(c) No Employee shall be eligible to receive grants of Options and SARs for more than an aggregate of 750,000 Shares during any three-year period (subject to adjustment as provided in Paragraph 13 hereof).

5. ADMINISTRATION OF THE PLAN

(a) The Plan shall be administered by the Board of Directors with respect to grants to Directors under the Plan.

(b) The Plan shall be administered by the Committee or by the Board of Directors with respect to grants to Employees under the Plan.

In determining the Employees to whom Awards shall be granted and the number of Shares to be covered by each Award, the Administrator may take into account the nature of the services rendered by the respective Employees, their present and potential contributions to the success of the Company, and other such factors as the Administrator in its discretion shall deem relevant.

 

8


(c) A Participant may be granted additional Awards under the Plan if the Administrator shall so determine subject to the limitations contained in Paragraph 4.

7. OPTIONS: GENERAL PROVISIONS

Options granted under this Plan shall be subject to such terms and conditions not inconsistent with the Plan as the Administrator shall determine, including the following:

(a) Types of Options. An Option to purchase Shares granted pursuant to this Plan shall be specified to be either an Incentive Stock Option or a Nonstatutory Stock Option. Any grant of an Option shall be confirmed by the execution of an Option Agreement. An Option Agreement may include both an Incentive Stock Option and a Nonstatutory Stock Option, provided each Option is clearly identified as either an Incentive Stock Option or a Nonstatutory Stock Option.

(b) Maximum Annual Grant of Incentive Stock Options to Any Employee. The aggregate fair market value (determined at the time the Incentive Stock Option is granted) of the Shares with respect to which Incentive Stock Options are exercisable for the first time by any Employee during any calendar year under this Plan (and under all other plans of the Company or any Subsidiary) shall not exceed $100,000, and/or any other limit as may be prescribed by the Code from time to time.

(c) Option Exercise Price. The per share purchase price of the Shares under each Option granted pursuant to this Plan shall be determined by the Administrator but shall not be less than one hundred percent (100%) of the fair market value per Share on the date of grant of such Option. The fair market value per Share on the date of grant shall be the Market Price for the business day immediately preceding the date of grant of such Option.

(d) Exercise. An Option Agreement may provide for exercise of an Option in such amounts and at such times as shall be specified therein; provided, however, except as provided in Paragraph 7(g), below, or as otherwise determined by the Administrator, no Option granted to an Employee may be exercised unless that person is then in the employ of the Company or a Subsidiary and shall have been continuously so employed since its date of grant. Except as otherwise permitted by the Administrator, an Option shall be exercisable by a Participant’s giving written notice of exercise to the Secretary of the Company accompanied by payment of the required exercise price.

(e) General Exercise Period. The Administrator may, in its discretion, determine the periods during which Options or portions of Options may be exercised by a Participant. Notwithstanding any limitation on the exercise of any Option or anything else to the contrary herein contained, except as otherwise determined by the Administrator at the time of grant, upon the occurrence of a Triggering Event, all outstanding Options shall become immediately exercisable, and if a person ceases to be an Employee during a Protected Period because of a termination of that person’s employment by the Company other than for Cause, all Options held by such person shall become immediately exercisable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no

 

9


Option shall be exercisable after the expiration of ten years from its date of grant. Every Option which has not been exercised within ten years of its date of grant shall lapse upon the expiration of said ten-year period unless it shall have lapsed at an earlier date.

(f) Payment of Exercise Price. The exercise price shall be payable in whole or in part in cash, Shares held by the Participant for more than six months, other property, or such other consideration consistent with the Plan’s purpose and applicable law as may be determined by the Administrator from time to time. Unless otherwise determined by the Administrator, such price shall be paid in full at the time that an Option is exercised. If the Participant elects to pay all or a part of the exercise price in Shares, such Participant may make such payment by delivering to the Company a number of Shares already owned by the Participant for more than six months, either directly or by attestation, which are equal in value to the purchase or exercise price. All Shares so delivered shall be valued at their Market Price on the business day immediately preceding the day on which such Shares are delivered.

(g) Cessation of Employee Status. With respect to Participants who are Employees, except as determined otherwise by the Administrator at the time of grant:

(1) Any Participant who ceases to be an Employee due to retirement on or after such person’s normal retirement date (as defined in the Manpower Inc. Retirement Plan or any successor plan providing retirement benefits) or due to early retirement with the consent of the Administrator shall have three (3) years from the date of such cessation to exercise any Option granted hereunder as to all or part of the Shares subject to such Option; provided, however, that no Option shall be exercisable subsequent to ten (10) years after its date of grant, and provided further that on the date the Participant ceases to be an Employee, he or she then has a present right to exercise such Option.

(2) Any Participant who ceases to be an Employee due to Disability shall have three (3) years from the date of such cessation to exercise any Option granted hereunder as to all or part of the Shares subject to such Option to the extent that such Participant then has a present right to exercise such Option or would have become entitled to exercise such Option had that Participant remained an Employee during such three-year period; provided, however, that no Option shall be exercisable subsequent to ten (10) years after its date of grant.

(3) In the event of the death of an Employee while an Employee, any Option, as to all or any part of the Shares subject to such Option, granted to such Employee shall be exercisable:

(A) for three (3) years after the Employee’s death, but in no event later than ten (10) years from its date of grant;

(B) only (1) by the deceased Employee’s designated beneficiary (such designation to be made in writing at such time and in such manner as the Administrator shall approve or prescribe), or, if the deceased Employee dies without a surviving designated beneficiary, (2) by the personal representative,

 

10


administrator, or other representative of the estate of the deceased Employee, or by the person or persons to whom the deceased Employee’s rights under the Option shall pass by will or the laws of descent and distribution; and

(C) only to the extent that the deceased Employee would have been entitled to exercise such Option on the date of the Employee’s death or would have become entitled to exercise such Option had the deceased Employee remained employed during such three-year period.

(4) An Employee or former Employee who holds an Option who has designated a beneficiary for purposes of Subparagraph 7(g)(3)(B)(1), above, may change such designation at any time, by giving written notice to the Administrator, subject to such conditions and requirements as the Administrator may prescribe in accordance with applicable law.

(5) If a Participant ceases to be an Employee for a reason other than those specified above, that Participant shall have eighteen (18) months from the date of such cessation to exercise any Option granted hereunder as to all or part of the Shares subject thereto; provided, however, that no Option shall be exercisable subsequent to ten (10) years after its date of grant, and provided further that on the date the person ceases to be an Employee, he or she then has a present right to exercise such Option. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a person ceases to be an Employee because of a termination of employment for Cause, to the extent an Option is not effectively exercised prior to such cessation, it shall lapse immediately upon such cessation.

(h) Extension of Periods. The Administrator may in its sole discretion increase the periods permitted for exercise of an Option if a Participant ceases to be an Employee as provided in Subparagraphs 7(g)(1), (2), (3) and (5), above, if allowable under applicable law; provided, however, in no event shall an Option be exercisable subsequent to ten (10) years after its date of grant.

(i) Transferability.

(1) Except as otherwise provided in this Paragraph 7(i), or unless otherwise provided by the Administrator, Options granted to a Participant under this Plan shall not be transferable or subjected to execution, attachment or similar process, and during the lifetime of the Participant shall be exercisable only by the Participant. A Participant shall have the right to transfer the Options granted to such Participant upon such Participant’s death, either to the deceased Participant’s designated beneficiary (such designation to be made in writing at such time and in such manner as the Administrator shall approve or prescribe), or, if the deceased Participant dies without a surviving designated beneficiary, by the terms of such Participant’s will or under the laws of descent and distribution, subject to any limitations set forth in this Plan or otherwise determined by the Administrator, and all such distributees shall be subject to all terms and conditions of this Plan to the same extent as would the Participant.

 

11


(2) Nonstatutory Stock Options granted to Directors or to any Employee who is subject to Section 16 of the Exchange Act shall be transferable to members of the Participant’s immediate family, to trusts for the benefit of the Participant and/or such immediate family members, and to partnerships in which the Participant and/or such family members are the only partners, provided the transferee agrees to be bound by any vesting or other restrictions applicable to the Participant with respect to the Options. For purposes of the preceding sentence, “immediate family” shall mean a Participant’s spouse, children, descendants of children, and spouses of children and descendants. Upon such a transfer, the Option (or portion of the Option) thereafter shall be exercisable by the transferee to the extent and on the terms it would have been exercisable by the transferring Participant.

8. RESTRICTED STOCK / RESTRICTED STOCK UNITS

Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units granted under this Plan shall be subject to such terms and conditions not inconsistent with the Plan as the Administrator shall determine, including the following:

(a) Grants. The terms of any grant of Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units shall be confirmed by the execution of a Restricted Stock Agreement or a Restricted Stock Unit Agreement.

(b) Restrictions on Restricted Stock. Restricted Stock may not be sold, assigned, conveyed, donated, pledged, transferred or otherwise disposed of or encumbered for the period determined by the Administrator (the “Restricted Period”), subject to the provisions of this Paragraph 8. In the event that a Participant shall sell, assign, convey, donate, pledge, transfer or otherwise dispose of or encumber the Restricted Stock, said Restricted Stock shall, at the Administrator’s option, and in addition to such other rights and remedies available to the Administrator (including the right to restrain or set aside such transfer), upon written notice to the transferee thereof at any time within ninety (90) days after its discovery of such transaction, be forfeited to the Company.

(c) Vesting Conditions. The Administrator shall determine the conditions under which Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units shall vest. The Administrator may set vesting conditions based solely upon the continued employment of a Participant who is an Employee or the continued service of a Participant who is a Director during the applicable vesting period and/or may specify vesting conditions based upon the achievement of specific performance objectives. Where Restricted Stock is granted subject to vesting conditions that are based upon the achievement of specific performance objectives, except as otherwise provided in this Section 8, the Restricted Period shall not end until the performance objectives have been achieved, as certified by the Committee or otherwise. For purposes of qualifying Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units as “performance-based compensation” under Section 162(m) of the Code, the Committee may set performance conditions based upon the achievement of Performance Goals. In such event, the Performance Goals shall be set by the Committee on or before the latest date permissible to enable the Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units to qualify as “performance-based compensation” under Section 162(m) of the Code and the

 

12


Committee shall follow any procedures determined by it from time to time to be necessary or appropriate to ensure qualification of the Restricted Stock or Restricted Stock Units under Section 162(m) of the Code, including, without limitation, written certification by the Committee that the performance objectives and other applicable conditions have been satisfied before the Restricted Period shall end or the Restricted Stock Units are paid.

(d) Cessation of Employee Status. With respect to Participants who are Employees, except as determined otherwise by the Administrator at the time of grant:

(1) If a Participant ceases to be an Employee for any reason, then except as provided in Subparagraphs (d)(2) and (e), below, all Restricted Stock and unvested Restricted Stock Units held by such Participant shall be forfeited to the Company.

(2) In the event a Participant ceases to be an Employee on or after such person’s normal retirement date (as defined in the Manpower Inc. Retirement Plan or any successor plan providing retirement benefits), or due to early retirement with the consent of the Administrator, or due to death or Disability, all restrictions applicable to any Restricted Stock then held by the Participant shall immediately lapse and all unvested Restricted Stock Units held by the Participant shall immediately vest.

(e) Vesting on Triggering Event. Except as determined otherwise by the Administrator at the time of grant, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein contained, upon the occurrence of a Triggering Event, the restrictions applicable to any Restricted Stock then held by all Participants shall immediately lapse and any Restricted Stock Units then held by all Participants shall immediately vest. In addition, except as otherwise determined by the Administrator at the time of grant, in the case of any individual Employee, upon that person’s ceasing to be an Employee during a Protected Period because of a termination of such person’s employment by the Company other than for Cause, the restrictions applicable to any Restricted Stock then held by such Employee shall immediately lapse and any Restricted Stock Units then held by such Employee shall immediately vest.

(f) Retention of Certificates for Restricted Stock. The Company will retain custody of the stock certificates representing Restricted Stock during the Restricted Period as well as a stock power signed by the Participant to be used in the event the Restricted Stock is forfeited to the Company.

(g) Transferability of Restricted Stock Units. Except as provided below, Restricted Stock Units may not be sold, assigned, conveyed, donated, pledged, transferred or otherwise disposed of or encumbered or subjected to execution, attachment, or similar process; provided, however, Shares distributed in respect of such Restricted Stock Units may be transferred in accordance with applicable securities laws. Any transfer, attempted transfer, or purported transfer of Restricted Stock Units by a Participant shall be null and void. A Participant shall have the right to transfer Restricted Units upon such Participant’s death, either to the deceased Participant’s designated beneficiary (such designation to be made in writing at such time and in such manner as the Administrator shall prescribe or approve), or, if the deceased Participant dies without a surviving designated beneficiary, by the terms of such Participant’s will or under the laws of

 

13


descent and distribution, subject to any limitations set forth in the Plan or otherwise determined by the Administrator, and all such distributees shall be subject to all terms and conditions of the Plan to the same extent as would the Participant.

(h) No Rights as Shareholders for Participants Holding Restricted Stock Units. No Participant shall have any interest in any fund or in any specific asset or assets of the Company by reason of any Restricted Stock Units granted hereunder, nor any right to exercise any of the rights or privileges of a shareholder with respect to any Restricted Stock Units or any Shares distributable with respect to any Restricted Stock Units until such Shares are so distributed.

(i) Distribution of Shares with Respect to Restricted Stock Units. Each Participant who holds Restricted Stock Units shall be entitled to receive from the Company one Share for each Restricted Stock Unit, as adjusted from time to time in the manner set forth in Paragraph 13, below. However, the Company, as determined in the sole discretion of the Administrator at the time of grant, shall be entitled to settle its obligation to deliver Shares by instead making a payment of cash substantially equal to the fair market value of the Shares it would otherwise be obligated to deliver, or by the issuance of a combination of Shares and cash, in the proportions determined by the Administrator, substantially equal to the fair market value of the Shares the Company would otherwise be obligated to deliver. The fair market value of a Share for this purpose will mean the Market Price on the business day immediately preceding the date of the cash payment. Except as otherwise determined by the Administrator at the time of the grant, Restricted Stock Units shall vest and Shares shall be distributed to the Participant in respect thereof as of the vesting date; provided, however, if any grant of Restricted Stock Units to a Participant who is subject to U.S. federal income tax is nonqualified deferred compensation for purposes of Section 409A of the Code, cash or Shares shall only be distributed in a manner such that Section 409A of the Code will not cause the Participant to become subject to penalties and/or interest thereunder; and provided, further, that no cash or Shares shall be distributed in respect of Restricted Stock Units prior to the date on which such Restricted Stock Unit vest.

(j) Dividends and Distributions with Respect to Restricted Stock Units. Except as otherwise provided by the Administrator at the time of grant, if a Participant holds Restricted Stock Units on the last day of any fiscal year of the Company, the Participant shall be credited as of such date with a number of additional Restricted Stock Units equal to the quotient of (i) the aggregate amount of dividends which would have been received by a shareholder holding a number of Shares equal to the number of Restricted Stock Units held by such Participant during the year or shorter period that the Participant held Restricted Stock Units, divided by (ii) the average of the Market Prices on the last trading day of each full or partial calendar quarter during such fiscal year in which the Participant held Restricted Stock Units. In the event of any distribution with respect to Shares other than a cash dividend, then, except as otherwise provided by the Administrator at the time of grant, if a Participant holds Restricted Stock Units on the last day of any fiscal year of the Company, the Participant shall be credited as of such date with a number of additional Restricted Stock Units equal in value to the fair market value of the property which would have been received by a shareholder holding a number of Shares equal to the number of shares of Restricted Stock Units held by such Participant on the date of the distribution in such fiscal year, assuming each additional Restricted Stock Unit has a value equal

 

14


to the average of the Market Prices on the last trading day of each full or partial calendar quarter during such fiscal year in which the Participant held Restricted Stock Units. Where a distribution of Shares to a Participant in respect of Restricted Stock Units in accordance with Subparagraph 8(i) above is made before the end of the Company’s fiscal year (due to vesting or otherwise), a pro rata portion of any Restricted Stock Units that would otherwise be credited to the Participant at the end of such fiscal year, but for the fact that the Participant will not continue to hold such Restricted Stock Units at the end of such fiscal year, shall be paid to the Participant in Shares at the time such Shares are distributed to the Participant in connection with dividends and/or distributions paid during the year to shareholders of record before such distribution of Shares, if any. Restricted Stock Units credited under this Subparagraph 8(j) shall vest and be distributed on the same terms and in the same proportions as the Restricted Stock Units held by a Participant as of the record date or distribution date shall vest.

9. SARs

Each SAR granted under this Plan shall be subject to such terms and conditions not inconsistent with the Plan as the Administrator shall determine, including the following:

(a) Grants. The terms of any grant of SARs shall be confirmed by the execution of an SAR Agreement.

(b) Grant Value. The Grant Value of each SAR granted pursuant to this Plan shall be determined by the Administrator, but shall not be less than one hundred percent (100%) of the fair market value per Share on the date of grant of such SAR. The fair market value per Share on the date of grant shall be the Market Price for the business day immediately preceding the date of grant of such SAR.

(c) Exercise. An SAR Agreement may provide for exercise of an SAR by a Participant in such amounts and at such times as shall be specified therein; provided, however, except as provided in Paragraph 9(f) below, or as otherwise determined by the Administrator, no SAR granted to an Employee may be exercised unless that person is then in the employ of the Company or a Subsidiary and shall have been continuously so employed since its date of grant. Except as otherwise permitted by the Administrator, an SAR shall be exercisable by a Participant by such Participant giving written notice of exercise to the Secretary of the Company.

(d) General Exercise Period. The Administrator may, in its discretion, determine the periods during which SARs may be exercised by a Participant. Notwithstanding any limitation on the exercise of any SAR or anything else to the contrary herein contained, except as otherwise determined by the Administrator at the time of grant, upon the occurrence of a Triggering Event, all outstanding SARs shall become immediately exercisable, and if a person ceases to be an Employee during a Protected Period because of a termination of that person’s employment by the Company other than for Cause, all SARs held by such person shall become immediately exercisable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no SAR shall be exercisable after the expiration of ten years from its date of grant. Every SAR which has not been exercised within ten years of its date of grant shall lapse upon the expiration of said ten-year period unless it shall have lapsed at an earlier date.

 

15


(e) Rights on Exercise. An SAR shall entitle the Participant to receive from the Company that number of full Shares having an aggregate Market Price, as of the business day immediately preceding the date of exercise (the “Valuation Date”), substantially equal to (but not more than) the excess of the Market Price of one Share on the Valuation Date over the Grant Value for such SAR as set forth in the applicable SAR Agreement, multiplied by the number of SARs exercised. However, the Company, as determined in the sole discretion of the Administrator, shall be entitled to elect to settle its obligation arising out of the exercise of an SAR by the payment of cash substantially equal to the aggregate Market Price on the Valuation Date of the Shares it would otherwise be obligated to deliver, or by the issuance of a combination of Shares and cash, in the proportions determined by the Administrator, substantially equal to the aggregate Market Price on the Valuation Date of the Shares the Company would otherwise be obligated to deliver.

(f) Cessation of Employee Status. With respect to Participants who are Employees, except as determined otherwise by the Administrator at the time of grant:

(1) Any Participant who ceases to be an Employee due to retirement on or after such person’s normal retirement date (as defined in the Manpower Inc. Retirement Plan or any successor plan providing retirement benefits) or due to early retirement with the consent of the Administrator shall have three (3) years from the date of such cessation to exercise any SAR granted hereunder; provided, however, that no SAR shall be exercisable subsequent to ten (10) years after its date of grant, and provided further that on the date the Participant ceases to be an Employee, he or she then has a present right to exercise such SAR.

(2) Any Participant who ceases to be an Employee due to Disability shall have three (3) years from the date of such cessation to exercise any SAR granted hereunder to the extent such Participant then has a present right to exercise such SAR or would have become entitled to exercise such SAR had that person remained an Employee during such three-year period; provided, however, that no SAR shall be exercisable subsequent to ten (10) years after its date of grant.

(3) In the event of the death of an Employee while an Employee, any SAR granted to such Employee shall be exercisable:

(A) for three (3) years after the Employee’s death, but in no event later than ten (10) years from its date of grant;

(B) only (1) by the deceased Employee’s designated beneficiary (such designation to be made in writing at such time and in such manner as the Administrator shall approve or prescribe), or, if the deceased Employee dies without a surviving designated beneficiary, (2) by the personal representative, administrator, or other representative of the estate of the deceased Employee, or by the person or persons to whom the deceased Employee’s rights under the SAR shall pass by will or the laws of descent and distribution; and

 

16


(C) only to the extent that the deceased Employee would have been entitled to exercise such SAR on the date of the Employee’s death or would have become entitled to exercise such SAR had the deceased Employee remained employed during such three-year period.

(4) An Employee or former Employee who holds an SAR who has designated a beneficiary for purposes of Subparagraph 9(f)(3)(B)(1), above, may change such designation at any time, by giving written notice to the Administrator, subject to such conditions and requirements as the Administrator may prescribe in accordance with applicable law.

(5) If a Participant ceases to be an Employee for a reason other than those specified above, that Participant shall have eighteen (18) months from the date of such cessation to exercise any SAR granted hereunder; provided, however, that no SAR shall be exercisable subsequent to ten (10) years after its date of grant, and provided further that on the date the person ceases to be an Employee, he or she then has a present right to exercise such SAR. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a person ceases to be an Employee because of a termination of employment for Cause, to the extent an SAR is not effectively exercised prior to such cessation, it shall lapse immediately upon such cessation.

(g) Extension of Periods. The Administrator may in its sole discretion increase the periods permitted for exercise of an SAR if a person ceases to be an Employee as provided in Subparagraphs 9(f)(1), (2), (3) and (5), above, if allowable under applicable law; provided, however, in no event shall an SAR be exercisable subsequent to ten (10) years after its date of grant.

(h) Transferability. Except as otherwise provided in this Paragraph 9(h), or unless otherwise provided by the Administrator, SARs granted to a Participant under this Plan shall not be transferable or subjected to execution, attachment or similar process, and during the lifetime of the Participant shall be exercisable only by the Participant. A Participant shall have the right to transfer the SARs upon such Participant’s death, either to the deceased Participant’s designated beneficiary (such designation to be made in writing at such time and in such manner as the Administrator shall approve or prescribe), or, if the deceased Participant dies without a surviving designated beneficiary, by the terms of such Participant’s will or under the laws of descent and distribution, subject to any limitations set forth in the Plan or otherwise determined by the Administrator, and all such distributees shall be subject to all terms and conditions of the Plan to the same extent as would the Participant.

 

17


10. PERFORMANCE SHARE UNITS

Performance Share Units granted under this Plan shall be subject to such terms and conditions not inconsistent with the Plan as the Administrator shall determine, including the following:

(a) Grants. The terms of any grant of Performance Share Units shall be confirmed by the execution of a Performance Share Unit Agreement. The terms of any Performance Share Unit Agreement shall specify the target number of Performance Share Units established for the Participant, the applicable performance conditions, the performance period, and any vesting period applicable to the Award.

(b) Performance Conditions. The Administrator shall set performance conditions based upon the achievement of specific performance objectives. The Administrator may also set vesting conditions based on the continued employment of a Participant who is an Employee or based on the continued service of a Participant who is a Director, which may or may not run concurrently with the performance period. For purposes of qualifying Performance Share Units as “performance-based compensation” under Section 162(m) of the Code, the Committee may set performance conditions based upon the achievement of Performance Goals. In such event, the Performance Goals shall be set by the Committee on or before the latest date permissible to enable the Performance Share Units to qualify as “performance-based compensation under Section 162(m) of the Code and the Committee shall follow any procedures determined by it from time to time to be necessary or appropriate to ensure qualification of the Performance Share Units under Section 162(m) of the Code, including, without limitation, written certification by the Committee that the performance objectives and other applicable conditions have been satisfied before any payment is made in respect of an Award of Performance Share Units.

(c) Award Calculation and Payment. The actual number of Performance Share Units earned shall be determined at the end of the performance period, based on achievement of the applicable performance goals. Except as otherwise determined by the Administrator at the time of grant, Awards will be paid in Shares equal to the number of Performance Share Units that have been earned at the end of the performance period as of the later of: (1) the date the Administrator has approved and certified the number of Performance Share Units that have been earned, or (2) where applicable, the date any vesting period thereafter has been satisfied. However, the Company, as determined in the sole discretion of the Administrator at the time of grant, shall be entitled to settle its obligation to deliver Shares by instead making a payment of cash substantially equal to the fair market value of the Shares it would otherwise be obligated to deliver, or by the issuance of a combination of Shares and cash, in the proportions determined by the Administrator, substantially equal to the fair market value of the Shares the Company would otherwise be obligated to deliver. The fair market value of a Share for this purpose will mean the Market Price on the business day immediately preceding the date of the cash payment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any grant of Performance Share Units to a Participant who is subject to U.S. federal income tax is nonqualified deferred compensation for purposes of Section 409A of the Code, Shares or cash shall only be distributed in a manner such that Section 409A of the Code will not cause the Participant to become subject to penalties and/or interest thereunder.

 

18


(d) Cessation of Employee Status. With respect to Participants who are Employees, except as determined otherwise by the Administrator at the time of grant:

(1) If a Participant ceases to be an Employee for any reason, then except as provided in Subparagraphs (d)(2) and (e), below, all Performance Share Units held by such Participant that have not been earned and/or vested shall be forfeited.

(2) In the event a Participant ceases to be an Employee due to death or Disability, all Performance Share Units then held by the Participant that have not yet been earned and/or vested shall immediately become earned and vested to the same extent they would have otherwise been earned if 100% of the target performance condition had been achieved at the end of the performance period.

(e) Vesting on Triggering Event. Except as determined otherwise by the Administrator at the time of grant, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein contained, upon the occurrence of a Triggering Event, any Performance Share Units then held by all Participants that have not yet been earned and/or vested shall immediately become earned and vested to the same extent they would have otherwise been earned if 100% of the target performance condition had been achieved at the end of the performance period. In addition, except as otherwise determined by the Administrator at the time of grant, in the case of any individual Employee, upon that person’s ceasing to be an Employee during a Protected Period because of a termination of such person’s employment by the Company other than for Cause, any Performance Share Units then held by such Participant that have not yet been earned and/or vested shall immediately become earned and vested to the same extent they would have otherwise been earned if 100% of the target performance condition had been achieved at the end of the performance period.

(f) Transferability. Except as provided below, Performance Share Units may not be sold, assigned, conveyed, donated, pledged, transferred or otherwise disposed of or encumbered or subjected to execution, attachment, or similar process; provided, however, Shares distributed in respect of such Performance Share Units may be transferred in accordance with applicable securities laws. Any transfer, attempted transfer, or purported transfer of Performance Share Units by a Participant shall be null and void. A Participant shall have the right to transfer Performance Share Units upon such Participant’s death, either to the deceased Participant’s designated beneficiary (such designation to be made in writing at such time and in such manner as the Administrator shall prescribe or approve), or, if the deceased Participant dies without a surviving designated beneficiary, by the terms of such Participant’s will or under the laws of descent and distribution, subject to any limitations set forth in the Plan or otherwise determined by the Administrator, and all such distributees shall be subject to all terms and conditions of the Plan to the same extent as would the Participant.

(g) No Rights as Shareholders. No Participant shall have any interest in any fund or in any specific asset or assets of the Company by reason of any Performance Share Unit granted hereunder, nor any right to exercise any of the rights or privileges of a shareholder with respect

 

19


to any Performance Share Units or any Shares distributable with respect to any Performance Share Units until such Shares are so distributed.

11. DEFERRED STOCK

Deferred Stock granted under this Plan shall be subject to such terms and conditions not inconsistent with the Plan as the Administrator shall determine, including the following:

(a) Grants. The terms of any grant of Deferred Stock shall be confirmed by the execution of a Deferred Stock Agreement.

(b) Distributions of Shares. Each Participant who holds Deferred Stock shall be entitled to receive from the Company one Share for each share of Deferred Stock, as adjusted from time to time in the manner set forth in Paragraph 13, below. However, the Company, as determined in the sole discretion of the Administrator at the time of grant, shall be entitled to settle its obligation to deliver Shares by instead making a payment of cash substantially equal to the fair market value of the Shares it would otherwise be obligated to deliver, or by the issuance of a combination of Shares and cash, in the proportions determined by the Administrator, substantially equal to the fair market value of the Shares the Company would otherwise be obligated to deliver. The fair market value of a Share for this purpose will mean the Market Price on the business day immediately preceding the date of the cash payment. Deferred Stock shall vest and Shares shall be distributed to the Participant in respect thereof at such time or times as determined by the Administrator at the time of grant; provided, however, that no Shares shall be distributed in respect of Deferred Stock prior to the date on which such Deferred Stock vests.

[Effective for grants made on or after January 1, 2005, this subparagraph 11(b) will read as follows:

(b) Distributions of Shares. Each Participant who holds Deferred Stock shall be entitled to receive from the Company one Share for each share of Deferred Stock, as adjusted from time to time in the manner set forth in Paragraph 13, below. However, the Company, as determined in the sole discretion of the Administrator at the time of grant, shall be entitled to settle its obligation to deliver Shares by instead making a payment of cash substantially equal to the fair market value of the Shares it would otherwise be obligated to deliver, or by the issuance of a combination of Shares and cash, in the proportions determined by the Administrator, substantially equal to the fair market value of the Shares the Company would otherwise be obligated to deliver. The fair market value of a Share for this purpose will mean the Market Price on the business day immediately preceding the date of the cash payment. Deferred Stock shall vest and Shares shall be distributed to the Participant in respect thereof at such time or times as determined by the Administrator at the time of grant; provided, however, that, with respect to any Participant who is subject to U.S. federal income tax, Shares or cash distributed in respect of Deferred Stock shall only be distributed in a manner such that Section 409A of the Code will not cause the Participant to become subject to penalties and/or interest thereunder; and provided, further, that no Shares shall be distributed in respect of Deferred Stock prior to the date on which such Deferred Stock vests.]

 

20


(c) Cessation of Employee Status. With respect to Participants who are Employees, except as determined otherwise by the Administrator at the time of grant:

(1) If a Participant ceases to be an Employee for any reason, then except as provided in Subparagraphs (c)(2) and (d), below, all Deferred Stock held by such Participant on the date of termination that has not vested shall be forfeited.

(2) In the event a Participant ceases to be an Employee on or after such person’s normal retirement date (as defined in the Manpower Inc. Retirement Plan or any successor plan providing retirement benefits) or due to early retirement with the consent of the Administrator, or due to death or Disability, all Deferred Stock then held by such Participant shall immediately vest.

(d) Vesting on Triggering Event. Except as determined otherwise by the Administrator, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein contained, upon the occurrence of a Triggering Event, all Deferred Stock then held by Participants shall immediately vest. In addition, except as otherwise determined by the Administrator at the time of grant, in the case of any individual Employee, upon that person’s ceasing to be an Employee during a Protected Period because of a termination of such person’s employment by the Company other than for Cause, all Deferred Stock then held by such Employee shall immediately vest.

(e) Transferability. Except as provided below, Deferred Stock may not be sold, assigned, conveyed, donated, pledged, transferred or otherwise disposed of or encumbered or subjected to execution, attachment, or similar process; provided, however, Shares distributed in respect of such Deferred Stock may be transferred in accordance with applicable securities laws. Any transfer, attempted transfer, or purported transfer of Deferred Stock by a Participant shall be null and void. A Participant shall have the right to transfer Deferred Stock upon such Participant’s death, either to the deceased Participant’s designated beneficiary (such designation to be made in writing at such time and in such manner as the Administrator shall prescribe or approve), or, if the deceased Participant dies without a surviving designated beneficiary, by the terms of such Participant’s will or under the laws of descent and distribution, subject to any limitations set forth in the Plan or otherwise determined by the Administrator, and all such distributees shall be subject to all terms and conditions of the Plan to the same extent as would the Participant.

(f) No Rights as Shareholders. No Participant shall have any interest in any fund or in any specific asset or assets of the Company by reason of any Deferred Stock granted hereunder, nor any right to exercise any of the rights or privileges of a shareholder with respect to any Deferred Stock or any Shares distributable with respect to any Deferred Stock until such Shares are so distributed.

(g) Dividends and Distributions. Except as otherwise provided by the Administrator at the time of grant, as of each record date for the payment of dividends on the Company’s common stock, each Participant shall be credited with a number of additional shares of Deferred Stock equal to the quotient of the amount of dividends which would have been received by a shareholder of record of a number of Shares equal to the number of shares of Deferred Stock

 

21


held by such Participant immediately before such dividend, divided by the Market Price on such date. In the event of any distribution with respect to Shares other than a cash dividend, then, except as otherwise provided by the Administrator at the time of grant, each Participant shall be credited with a number of additional shares of Deferred Stock equal in value to the fair market value of the consideration which would have been received on the date of such distribution by a shareholder of record of a number of Shares equal to the number of shares of Deferred Stock held by such Participant immediately before such distribution, assuming each additional share of Deferred Stock has a value equal to the Market Price for the business day immediately preceding such distribution date.

(h) Accelerated Distribution. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Plan, the Administrator may, at any time after Deferred Stock held by a Participant has vested, accelerate the time that Shares are distributed with respect to such Deferred Stock.

[Effective for grants made on or after January 1, 2005, this subparagraph 11(h) will read as follows:

(h) Accelerated Distribution. The Administrator may not, at any time after Deferred Stock held by a Participant has vested, accelerate the time that Shares or cash are or is distributed with respect to such Deferred Stock, except where such an acceleration would not cause the Participant to become subject to penalties and/or interest under Section 409A of the Code.]

12. LAWS AND REGULATIONS

Each Option Agreement, Restricted Stock Agreement, SAR Agreement or Deferred Stock Agreement shall contain such representations, warranties and other terms and conditions as shall be necessary in the opinion of counsel to the Company to comply with all applicable federal and state securities laws. The Company shall have the right to delay the issue or delivery of any Shares under the Plan until (a) the completion of such registration or qualification of such Shares under any federal or state law, ruling or regulation as the Company shall determine to be necessary or advisable, and (b) receipt from the Participant of such documents and information as the Administrator may deem necessary or appropriate in connection with such registration or qualification.

13. ADJUSTMENT PROVISIONS

(a) Share Adjustments. In the event of any stock dividend, stock split, recapitalization, merger, consolidation, combination or exchange of shares, or the like, as a result of which shares of any class shall be issued in respect of the outstanding Shares, or the Shares shall be changed into the same or a different number of the same or another class of stock, or into securities of another person, cash or other property (not including a regular cash dividend), the total number of Shares authorized to be offered in accordance with Paragraph 4 and the other limitations contained in Paragraph 4, the number of Shares subject to each outstanding Option, the number of Shares of Restricted Stock then held by each Participant, the number of shares to which each

 

22


then outstanding SAR relates, the number of shares to which each outstanding Award of Deferred Stock, Restricted Stock Unit or Performance Share Unit relates, the exercise price applicable to each outstanding Option and the Grant Value of each outstanding SAR shall be appropriately adjusted as determined by the Administrator.

(b) Acquisitions. In the event of a merger or consolidation of the Company with another corporation or entity in which the Company is not the survivor, or a sale or disposition by the Company of all or substantially all of its assets, the Administrator shall, in its sole discretion, have authority to provide for (1) waiver in whole or in part of any remaining restrictions or vesting requirements in connection with any Award granted hereunder, (2) the conversion of outstanding Options, Restricted Stock, Restricted Stock Units, SARs, Performance Share Units or Deferred Stock into cash and/or (3) the conversion of Awards into the right to receive securities of another person upon such terms and conditions as are determined by the Administrator in its discretion.

(c) Binding Effect. Any adjustment, waiver, conversion or other action taken by the Administrator under this Paragraph 13 shall be conclusive and binding on all Participants.

14. TAXES

(a) Options and SARs. The Company shall be entitled to pay and withhold from any amounts payable by the Company to a Participant the amount of any tax which it believes is required as a result of the grant, vesting or exercise of any Option or SAR, and the Company may defer making delivery with respect to cash and/or Shares obtained pursuant to exercise of any Option or SAR until arrangements satisfactory to it have been made with respect to any such withholding obligations. A Participant exercising an Option or SAR may, at his or her election, satisfy his or her obligation for payment of required withholding taxes by having the Company retain a number of Shares having an aggregate Market Price on the business day immediately preceding the date the Shares are withheld equal to the amount of the required withholding tax.

(b) Restricted Stock. The Company shall be entitled to pay and withhold from any amounts payable by the Company to a Participant the amount of any tax which it believes is required as a result of the issuance of or lapse of restrictions on Restricted Stock, and the Company may defer the delivery of any Shares or Share certificates until arrangements satisfactory to the Administrator shall have been made with respect to any such withholding obligations. A Participant may, at his or her election, satisfy his or her obligation for payment of required withholding taxes with respect to Restricted Stock by delivering to the Company a number of Shares which were Restricted Stock upon the lapse of restrictions, or Shares already owned, having an aggregate Market Price on the business day immediately preceding the day on which such Shares are withheld equal to the amount of the required withholding tax.

(c) Restricted Stock Units, Performance Share Units and Deferred Stock. The Company shall be entitled to pay and withhold from any amounts payable by the Company to a Participant the amount of any tax which it believes is required as a result of the grant or vesting of any Restricted Stock Units, Performance Share Units or Deferred Stock or the distribution of any Shares or cash payments with respect to Restricted Stock Units, Performance Share Units or

 

23


Deferred Stock, and the Company may defer making delivery of Shares with respect to Restricted Stock Units, Performance Share Units or Deferred Stock until arrangements satisfactory to the Administrator have been made with respect to any such withholding obligations. A Participant who holds Restricted Stock Units, Performance Share Units or Deferred Stock may, at his or her election, satisfy his or her obligation to pay the required withholding taxes by having the Company withhold from the number of Shares distributable, if any, a number of Shares having an aggregate Market Price on the business day immediately preceding the date the Shares are withheld equal to the amount of the required withholding tax.

15. EFFECTIVENESS OF THE PLAN

The Plan, as approved by the Company’s Executive Compensation Committee and Board of Directors, shall become effective as of the date of such approval, subject to ratification of the Plan by the vote of the shareholders.

16. TERMINATION AND AMENDMENT

Unless the Plan shall theretofore have been terminated as hereinafter provided, no Award shall be granted after February 18, 2013. The Board of Directors of the Company may terminate the Plan or make such modifications or amendments thereof as it shall deem advisable, including, but not limited to, such modifications or amendments as it shall deem advisable in order to conform to any law or regulation applicable thereto; provided, however, that the Board of Directors may not, without further approval of the holders of a majority of the Shares voted at any meeting of shareholders at which a quorum is present and voting, adopt any amendment to the Plan for which shareholder approval is required under tax, securities or any other applicable law or the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange (or if the Shares are not then listed on the New York Stock Exchange, the listing standards of such other exchange or inter-dealer quotation system on which the Shares are listed). Except to the extent necessary for Participants to avoid becoming subject to penalties and/or interest under Section 409A of the Code with respect to Awards that are treated as nonqualified deferred compensation thereunder, no termination, modification or amendment of the Plan may, without the consent of the Participant, adversely affect the rights of such Participant under an outstanding Award then held by the Participant.

Except as otherwise provided in this Plan, the Administrator may amend an outstanding Award or any Stock Option Agreement, Restricted Stock Agreement, Restricted Stock Unit Agreement, SAR Agreement, Performance Share Agreement or Deferred Stock Agreement; provided, however, that the Participant’s consent to such action shall be required unless the Administrator determines that the action, taking into account any related action, (i) would not materially and adversely affect the Participant or (ii) where applicable, is required in order for the Participant to avoid becoming subject to penalties and/or interest under Section 409A of the Code. The Administrator may also modify or amend the terms of any Award granted under the Plan for the purpose of complying with, or taking advantage of, income or other tax or legal requirements or practices of foreign countries which are applicable to Employees. However, notwithstanding any other provision of the Plan, the Administrator may not adjust or amend the

 

24


exercise price of any outstanding Option or SAR, whether through amendment, cancellation and replacement grants, or any other means, except in accordance with Paragraph 13 of the Plan.

17. OTHER BENEFIT AND COMPENSATION PROGRAMS

Payments and other benefits received by an Employee under an Award granted pursuant to the Plan shall not be deemed a part of such Employee’s regular, recurring compensation for purposes of the termination, indemnity or severance pay law of any country and shall not be included in, nor have any effect on, the determination of benefits under any other employee benefit plan, contract or similar arrangement provided by the Company or any Subsidiary unless expressly so provided by such other plan, contract or arrangement, unless required by law, or unless the Administrator expressly determines otherwise.

18. NO RIGHT TO EMPLOYMENT.

The Plan shall not confer upon any person any right with respect to continuation of employment by the Company or a Subsidiary, nor shall it interfere in any way with the right of the Company or such Subsidiary to terminate any person’s employment at any time.
