THIS AGREEMENT, dated as of the date of grant (the "Grant Date") indicated in your account maintained by the company providing administrative services in connection with the Plan (as defined below) (the "External Administrator"), between Agilent Technologies, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Company"), and you as an individual who has been granted a stock option pursuant to the Agilent Technologies, Inc. 2009 Stock Plan (the "Awardee") is entered into as follows:

WITNESSETH:

WHEREAS, the Company has established the Agilent Technologies, Inc. 2009 Stock Plan, (the "Plan"), and a description of the terms and conditions of the Plan is set forth in the U.S. Plan prospectus (the "Prospectus"). A copy of the Prospectus is available at http://stockoptions.corporate.agilent.com and also on your External Administrator website. A copy of the Plan document can be viewed at http://stockoptions.corporate.agilent.com and will also be made available upon request; and

WHEREAS, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company (the "Committee") or its authorized delegate(s) determined that the Awardee shall be granted an option under the Plan as hereinafter set forth;

NOW THEREFORE, the parties hereby agree that the Company grants the Awardee an option ("Option") to purchase the number of shares of the Company153s $0.01 par value voting Common Stock indicated in the Awardee153s External Administrator account subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein and in the Plan.

1. Governing Document. This Option is granted under and pursuant to the Plan and is subject to each and all of the provisions thereof. In the event of a conflict between the terms and conditions of the Plan and the terms and conditions of this Award Agreement, the terms and conditions of the Plan shall prevail. Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined herein are used with the same meanings as in the Plan.

2. Option Price. The Option price shall be equal to the Fair Market Value (as defined in the Plan document) of the underlying shares on the Grant Date, unless otherwise required by local law as noted on the Appendix. The Option price for this grant is indicated in the Awardee153s External Administrator account.

3. Non-Transferability of Option. This Option is not transferable by the Awardee except by will or the laws of descent and distribution. During the Awardee153s lifetime, only the Awardee can exercise this Option. This Option may not be transferred, assigned, pledged or hypothecated by the Awardee during his or her lifetime, whether by operation of law or otherwise, and is not subject to execution, attachment or similar process.

4. Vesting. So long as the Awardee retains status as an Awardee Eligible to Vest as such term is defined in the Plan, this Option will vest in whole or in part, in accordance with the following vesting schedule: 25% per year for 4 years.

1



An Awardee loses status as an Awardee Eligible to Vest when certain events occur, including but not limited to, termination of employment with the Company or transfer of employment from the Company. If an individual ceases to be an Awardee Eligible to Vest, other than as a result of circumstances described in Sections 4(a), (b), (c) and (d) below, the Awardee153s unvested Option shall terminate immediately. If, for any reason, the Awardee does not exercise his or her vested Option within the appropriate exercise period set forth in Section 7 below, the Option shall automatically terminate, and the underlying shares covered by such Option shall revert to the Plan.

(a) Retirement of Awardee. If the Awardee ceases to be an Awardee Eligible to Vest as a result of the Awardee153s retirement, in accordance with the Company153s or its Subsidiary153s retirement policy, all unvested Options shall continue to vest in accordance with the vesting schedule set forth above.

(b) Disability of Awardee. If the Awardee ceases to be an Awardee Eligible to Vest as a result of the Awardee153s total and permanent disability, all unvested Options shall immediately vest.

(c) Death of Awardee. If the Awardee dies while an Employee or after Awardee153s retirement, in accordance with the Company153s or its Subsidiary153s retirement policy, all unvested Options shall immediately vest.

(d) Voluntary Severance Incentive Program. If the Awardee ceases to be an Awardee Eligible to Vest as a result of participation in the Company153s or its Subsidiary153s voluntary severance incentive program approved by the Board or Executive Committee, any unvested Option and/or SAR shall immediately vest.

5. Term of the Option. This Option will expire ten (10) years from the Grant Date, unless sooner terminated, forfeited, or canceled in accordance with the provisions of the Plan. This means that the Option must be exercised, if at all, on or before the expiration date. This expiration date is indicated in the Awardee153s External Administrator account. The Awardee is responsible for keeping track of this date and will not receive any prior notification of the expiration date from the Company.

6. Exercise of the Option. Options may be exercised in any manner permitted by the External Administrator, and will be subject to such administrator153s fees and procedures. The Company reserves the right to limit availability of certain methods of exercise as it deems necessary, including those limitations set forth in the Appendix to this Award Agreement.

7. Termination of Employment. Any unvested portion of the Option shall be terminated immediately when the Awardee ceases to be an Awardee Eligible to Vest, unless the Awardee ceases to be an Awardee Eligible to Vest due to the Awardee153s death, total and permanent disability, retirement or participation in the Company153s Workforce Management Program. Except as the Committee may otherwise determine, termination of the Awardee153s employment or service for any reason shall occur on the date such Awardee ceases to perform services for the Company or any Affiliate without regard to whether such Awardee continues thereafter to receive any compensatory payments therefrom or is paid salary thereby in lieu of notice of termination or, with respect to a member of the Board who is not also an employee of the Company or any Subsidiary, the date such Awardee is no longer a member of the Board.

All rights of the Awardee in this Option, to the extent that it has vested but has not been exercised, shall terminate on the earlier of the expiration date or three (3) months after the Awardee loses

2



status as an Awardee Eligible to Vest, except where the Awardee loses such status because of death, retirement or permanent and total disability. In the event of the Awardee153s death, his or her legal representative or designated beneficiary shall have the right to exercise the Awardee153s right under this Option. The representative or designee must exercise the Option before the earlier of the expiration date or one (1) year after the death of the Awardee, and shall be bound by the provisions of the Plan. In case of permanent and total disability, the Awardee retains rights in this Option until the earlier of the expiration date or three (3) years from the date thereof. In the case of retirement, the Awardee retains rights in this Option until the expiration date; provided that in the event of such Awardee153s death prior to the expiration date, his or her legal representative or designated beneficiary shall have the right to exercise the Awardee153s right under this Option before the earlier of the expiration date or one (1) year after the death of the Awardee as set forth above.

Notwithstanding any provision in the Plan to the contrary, if an Awardee terminates employment due to death, total and permanent disability, or due to participation in the Company153s Workforce Management Program, the Option shall vest in full and if an Awardee terminates employment due to retirement in accordance with the Company153s or its Subsidiary153s retirement policy, the Option shall continue to vest in accordance with the vesting schedule set forth in Section 4 above.

In the event of a Change of Control of the Company (as defined in Section 18(c) of the Plan or any successor), the Option shall vest in full immediately prior to the closing of the transaction. The foregoing shall not apply where the Option is assumed, converted or replaced in full by the successor corporation or a parent or subsidiary of the successor; provided, however, that in the event of a Change of Control in which one or more of the successor or a parent or subsidiary of the successor has issued publicly traded equity securities, the assumption, conversion, replacement or continuation shall be made by an entity with publicly traded securities and shall provide that the holders of such assumed, converted, replaced or continued stock options shall be able to acquire such publicly traded securities.

8. Restrictions on Sale of Shares of Common Stock. The Company shall not be obligated to issue any shares of Common Stock pursuant to this Option unless the shares of Common Stock are at that time effectively registered or exempt from registration under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and, as applicable, local laws.

9. Responsibility for Taxes. Regardless of any action the Company or the Awardee153s employer (the "Employer") takes with respect to any or all income tax, social insurance, payroll tax or other tax-related withholding (the "Tax-Related Items"), the Awardee acknowledges that the ultimate liability for all Tax-Related Items legally due by the Awardee is and remains the Awardee153s responsibility and that the Company and/or the Employer (1) make no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related Items in connection with any aspect of the Option, including the grant, vesting or exercise of the Option, the subsequent sale of shares of Common Stock acquired pursuant to such exercise and the receipt of any dividends; and (2) do not commit to structure the terms of the grant or any aspect of the Option to reduce or eliminate the Awardee153s liability for Tax-Related Items.

Prior to the relevant taxable event, the Awardee shall pay or make adequate arrangements satisfactory to the Company and/or the Employer to satisfy all Tax-Related Items withholding obligations of the Company and/or the Employer. In this regard, the Awardee authorizes the Company and/or the Employer, at their sole discretion to satisfy the obligations with regard to all applicable Tax-Related Items legally payable by one or a combination of the following: (1) withholding from the Awardee153s wages or other cash compensation paid to the Awardee by the

3



Company and/or the Employer; (2) withholding from proceeds of the sale of shares of Common Stock acquired upon exercise of the Option; (3) arranging for the sale of shares of Common Stock acquired upon exercise of the Option (on the Awardee153s behalf and at the Awardee153s discretion pursuant to this authorization); or (4) withholding in shares of Common Stock, provided that the Company only withholds the amount of shares of Common Stock necessary to satisfy the minimum withholding amount. If the obligation for the Awardee153s Tax-Related Items is satisfied by withholding a number of shares of Common Stock as described herein, the Awardee is deemed to have been issued the full number of shares of Common Stock subject to the Option, notwithstanding that a number of the shares of Common Stock are held back solely for the purpose of paying the Tax-Related Items due as a result of any aspect of this Option.

Finally, the Awardee will pay to the Company or the Employer any amount of Tax-Related Items that the Company or the Employer may be required to withhold as a result of the Awardee153s participation in the Plan or the Awardee153s purchase of shares of Common Stock that cannot be satisfied by the means previously described. The Company may refuse to honor the exercise and refuse to deliver the shares of Common Stock if the Awardee fails to comply with his or her obligations in connection with the Tax-Related Items as described in this section.

10. Adjustment. The number of shares of Common Stock subject to this Option and the Option price of such shares may be adjusted by the Company from time to time pursuant to the Plan.

11. Nature of the Option. By accepting the grant of this Option, the Awardee acknowledges and agrees that:

(i) the Plan is established voluntarily by the Company, it is discretionary in nature and it may be modified, amended, suspended or terminated by the Company at any time, unless otherwise provided in the Plan and this Award Agreement;

(ii) the grant of an option is a one-time benefit which does not create any contractual or other right to receive future grants of options, or benefits in lieu of options, even if options have been granted repeatedly in the past;

(iii) all determinations with respect to any future option grants, including, but not limited to, the times when options shall be granted, the maximum number of shares subject to each option and the option price, will be at the sole discretion of the Company;

(iv) participation in the Plan shall not create a right to further employment with the Employer and shall not interfere with the ability of the Employer to terminate the Awardee153s employment relationship at any time;

(v) participating in the Plan is voluntary;

(vi) the Option is an extraordinary item that does not constitute compensation of any kind for services of any kind rendered to the Company or the Employer, and which is outside the scope of the Awardee153s employment contract, if any;

(vii) the Option and the shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan are not part of normal or expected compensation or salary for any purposes, including, but not limited to, calculating any severance, resignation, termination, redundancy, end of service payments, bonuses, long-service awards, pension or welfare or retirement benefits or similar payments, and in no event should be considered as compensation for, or relating in any way to, past services to the Company or the Employer;

4



(viii) in the event the Awardee is not an employee of the Company, the Option will not be interpreted to form an employment contract or relationship with the Company, the Employer or any Subsidiary or Affiliate;

(ix) the future value of the underlying shares of Common Stock is unknown and cannot be predicted with certainty;

(x) if the underlying shares of Common Stock do not increase in value, the Option will have no value;

(xi) if the Awardee exercises the Option and acquires shares of Common Stock, the value of those shares of Common Stock acquired may increase or decrease in value, even below the Option price;

(xii) in consideration of the grant of the Option, no claim or entitlement to compensation or damages shall arise from termination of the Option or diminution in value of the Option or shares of Common Stock acquired under the Option resulting from termination of the Awardee153s employment by the Company or the Employer and the Awardee irrevocably releases the Company and the Employer from any such claim that may arise;

(xiii) the vesting of any Option ceases upon termination of employment with the Company or transfer of employment from the Company, or other cessation of eligibility to vest for any reason, except as may otherwise be explicitly provided in the Plan document or this Award Agreement;

(xiv) the Company is not providing any tax, legal or financial advice, nor is the Company making any recommendations regarding the Awardee153s participation in the Plan, the exercise of the Option or the purchase or sale of shares of Common Stock under the Plan;

(xv) the Awardee is advised to consult with personal tax, legal and financial advisors regarding participation in the Plan before taking any action related to the Plan; and

(xvi) the Awardee acknowledges that this Award Agreement is between the Awardee and the Company, and that the Employer is not a party to this Award Agreement.

12. Data Privacy. The Awardee explicitly and unambiguously consents to the collection, use and transfer, in electronic or other form, of the Awardee153s personal data as described in this document by and among, as applicable, the Company, the Employer and the External Administrator for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Awardee153s participation in the Plan.

The Awardee hereby understands that Data may be transferred to any third parties (including the External Administrator) assisting in the implementation, administration and management of the Plan, that these recipients may be located in the Awardee153s country or elsewhere, such as outside the European Economic Area, and that the recipient153s country may have different data privacy laws and protections than the Awardee153s country. All such transfers of Data will be in accordance with the Company153s Privacy Policies and Guidelines. The Awardee hereby understands that the

5



Awardee may request a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of the Data by contacting the Awardee153s local human resources representative. The Awardee authorizes the recipients to receive, possess, use, retain and transfer the Data, in electronic or other form, for the purposes of implementing, administering and managing the Awardee153s participation in the Plan, including any requisite transfer of such Data as may be required to a broker or other third party with whom the Awardee may elect to deposit any Common Stock acquired upon exercise of the Option. The Awardee hereby understands that the Awardee may, at any time, view Data, request additional information about the storage and processing of Data, require any necessary amendments to Data or refuse or withdraw the consents herein, in any case without cost, by contacting in writing the Awardee153s local human resources representative. The Awardee hereby understands, however, that refusing or withdrawing the Awardee153s consent may affect the Awardee153s ability to participate in the Plan. For more information on the consequences of the Awardee153s refusal to consent or withdrawal of consent, the Awardee understands that he or she may contact his or her human resources representative responsible for the Awardee153s country at the local or regional level.

14. Recoupment. This Option is subject to the terms of the Agilent Technologies Executive Compensation Recoupment Policy in the form approved by the Committee as the date of grant (the "Policy"), if and to the extent that the Policy by its terms applies to the Option and the Awardee; and the terms of the Policy as of the date of grant are incorporated by reference herein and made a part hereof.

15. Administrative Procedures.

16. Entire Agreement; Amendment. The Plan is incorporated herein by reference. The Plan and this Award Agreement constitute the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede in their entirety all prior undertakings and agreements of the Company and the Awardee with respect to the subject matter hereof, and may not be modified adversely to the Awardee153s interest except by means of a writing signed by the Company and the Awardee. Otherwise, this Option may be amended as provided in the Plan.

17. Governing Law and Venue.

APPENDIX

ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE

AGILENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC. 2009 STOCK PLAN

STOCK OPTION AWARD AGREEMENT

FOR NON U.S.-EMPLOYEES

This Appendix includes additional terms and conditions that govern the Option granted to the Awardee under the Plan if the Awardee resides in one of the countries listed herein. Certain capitalized terms used but not defined in this Appendix have the meanings set forth in the Plan and/or the Award Agreement.

This Appendix also includes information regarding exchange controls and certain other issues of which the Awardee should be aware with respect to the Awardee153s participation in the Plan. The information is based on the securities, exchange control and other laws in effect in the respective countries as of November 2007. Such laws are often complex and change frequently. As a result, the Company strongly recommends that the Awardee not rely on the information in this Appendix as the only source of information relating to the consequences of the Awardee153s participation in the Plan because the information may be out of date at the time that the Awardee exercises the Option or sell shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan.

In addition, the information contained herein is general in nature and may not apply to the Awardee153s particular situation, and the Company is not in a position to assure the Awardee of a particular result. Accordingly, the Awardee is advised to seek appropriate professional advice as to how the relevant laws in the Awardee153s country may apply to his or her situation.

Finally, if the Awardee is a citizen or resident of a country other than the one in which the Awardee is currently working, the information contained herein may not be applicable to the Awardee.

BELGIUM

Hard Copy Signature Required. The Awardee acknowledges that he or she must sign and return this Award Agreement in order to accept the Option.

Vesting. Notwithstanding the vesting schedule set forth in the Award Agreement, the Option will vest in whole or in part in accordance with the following schedule: 25% per year for 4 years.

Tax Considerations.

The Awardee should consult his or her personal tax advisor with respect to completing the additional forms. The Awardee acknowledges that he or she must sign and return this Award Agreement and the additional forms in order for such documents to be effective.

The Awardee may choose to accept the Option within 60 days of the date of the offer or after 60 days of the date of the offer. This choice will affect the tax treatment of the offer as explained in the Belgian Grant documents.

The Awardee is required to report any taxable income attributable to the Option on his or her annual tax return. In addition, the Awardee is required to report any bank accounts opened and maintained

9



outside Belgium on his or her annual tax return.

BRAZIL

Hard Copy Signature Required. The Awardee acknowledges that he or she must sign and return this Award Agreement in order to accept the Option.

Exchange Control Information. The Awardee is advised to consult his or her personal legal advisor to determine the exchange control requirements applicable to the Awardee153s particular circumstances. It is solely the Awardee153s responsibility to comply with these requirements.

CHINA

Cashless Exercise Restriction. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Award Agreement or the Prospectus, due to legal restrictions in China, the cash exercise method is not available in China. This Option may only be exercised using the full cashless method such that all shares of Common Stock subject to the exercised Option will be sold immediately upon exercise and the proceeds of sale, less the Option price, any Tax-Related Items and any broker153s fees or commissions, will be remitted to the Awardee in cash only in accordance with any applicable exchange control laws and regulations and following the procedures established by the External Administrator. The Company reserves the right to provide the Awardee with additional methods of exercise depending on the development of local law.

Exchange Control Restriction. The Awardee understands and agrees that, due to exchange control laws in China, the Awardee may be required to immediately repatriate the proceeds from the cashless exercise to China. The Awardee further understands that such repatriation of the proceeds may need to be effected through a special exchange control account established by the Company or a Subsidiary or Affiliate and the Awardee hereby consents and agrees that the proceeds from the cashless exercise may be transferred to such special account prior to being delivered to the Awardee.

DENMARK

Additional Documents. A copy of the Employer Statement has also been provided to the Awardee in addition to this Award Agreement.

Exchange Control and Tax Information. Awardee may hold shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan in a safety-deposit account (e.g., a brokerage account) with either a Danish bank or with an approved foreign broker or bank. If the shares of Common Stock are held with a foreign broker or bank, the Awardee is required to inform the Danish Tax Administration about the safety-deposit account. For this purpose, the Awardee must file a Form V (Erklaering V) with the Danish Tax Administration. Both the Awardee and the External Administrator or bank must sign the Form V. By signing the Form V, the broker or bank undertakes an obligation, without further request each year, to forward information to the Danish Tax Administration concerning the shares in the account. By signing the Form V, the Awardee authorizes the Danish Tax Administration to examine the account.

10



In addition, if the Awardee opens a brokerage account (or a deposit account with a U.S. bank), the brokerage account (or bank account, as applicable) will be treated as a deposit account because cash can be held in the account. Therefore, the Awardee must also file a Form K (Erklaering K) with the Danish Tax Administration. Both the Awardee and the External Administrator must sign the Form K. By signing the Form K, the External Administrator undertakes an obligation, without further request each year, to forward information to the Danish Tax Administration concerning the content of the deposit account. By signing the Form K, the Awardee authorizes the Danish Tax Administration to examine the account.

If the Awardee uses the cashless method of exercise, the Awardee is not required to file a Form V because the Awardee will not hold any shares of Common Stock. However, if the Awardee opens a deposit account with a foreign broker or bank to hold the cash proceeds, the Awardee are required to file a Form K as described above.

The Awardee understands that the Employer, the Company and any Subsidiary or Affiliate hold certain personal information about the Awardee, including, but not limited to, the Awardee153s name, home address and telephone number, date of birth, social insurance or other identification number, salary, nationality, job title, any shares of Common Stock or directorships held in the Company or any Subsidiary or Affiliate, details of all Options or any other entitlement to shares of Common Stock awarded, canceled, exercised, vested, unvested or outstanding in the Awardee153s favor, for the exclusive purpose of implementing, managing and administering the Plan ("Data").

The Awardee also understands that providing the Company with Data is necessary for the performance of the Plan and that the Awardee153s denial to provide such Data would make it impossible for the Company to perform its contractual obligations and may affect the Awardee153s ability to participate in the Plan. The Controller of personal data processing is Agilent Technologies, Inc., with registered offices at 5301 Stevens Creek Boulevard, Santa Clara, California 95051, United States of America, and, pursuant to Legislative Decree no. 196/2003, its representative in Italy is Agilent Technologies Italia S.p.A,, with registered offices at Centro Direzionale di Villa Fiorita , Via Piero Gobetti, 2/c , 20063 Cernusco s/N, Milano Italia.

The Awardee further understands that the Company and/or any Subsidiary or Affiliate will transfer Data among themselves as necessary for the purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Awardee153s participation in the Plan, and that the Company and/or any Subsidiary or Affiliate may each further transfer Data to third parties assisting the Company in the implementation, administration and management of the Plan, including any requisite transfer of Data to a broker or other third party with whom the Awardee may elect to deposit any shares of Common Stock acquired under the Plan. Such recipients may receive, possess, use, retain and transfer Data in electronic or other form, for the purposes of implementing, administering and managing the Awardee153s participation in the Plan. The Awardee understands that these recipients may be located in or outside the European Economic Area, such as in the United States or elsewhere. Should the Company exercise its discretion in suspending all necessary legal obligations connected with the management and administration of the Plan, it will delete Data as soon as it has accomplished all the necessary legal obligations connected with the management and administration of the Plan.

The Awardee understands that Data processing related to the purposes specified above shall take place under automated or non-automated conditions, anonymously when possible, that comply with the purposes for which Data is collected and with confidentiality and security provisions as set forth by applicable laws and regulations, with specific reference to Legislative Decree no. 196/2003.

13



The processing activity, including communication, the transfer of Data abroad, including outside of the European Economic Area, as herein specified and pursuant to applicable laws and regulations, does not require the Awardee153s consent thereto as the processing is necessary to performance of contractual obligations related to implementation, administration and management of the Plan. The Awardee understands that, pursuant to Section 7 of the Legislative Decree no. 196/2003, the Awardee has the right to, including but not limited to, access, delete, update, correct or stop, for legitimate reason, the Data processing. Furthermore, the Awardee is aware that Data will not be used for direct marketing purposes.

RUSSIA

Shares must be Held with the External Administrator

The Company has designated a third-party to provide administrative services in connection with the Plan (the "External Administrator"). Pursuant to its authority under the Plan, the Company will require that the Awardee hold any shares issued to Awardee in connection with the exercise of the Option with the External Administrator until such time as the Awardee sells the shares. Until the Awardee decides to sell the shares issued to pursuant to the exercise of the Option, the Awardee cannot transfer the shares to an account with another broker or request that shares certificates be issued to the Awardee.

Exchange Control Information. If the Awardee remits funds out of Russia to purchase shares of Common Stock, the funds must be remitted from a foreign currency account opened in the Awardee153s name at an authorized bank in Russia. This requirement does not apply if the Awardee uses a cashless exercise such that some or all of the shares of Common Stock subject to the exercised Option will be sold immediately upon exercise and the proceeds of sale remitted to the Company to cover the aggregate Option price, any Tax-Related Items and any broker153s fees or commissions because in this case there is no remittance of funds out of Russia.

Regardless of what method of exercise the Awardee uses to purchase the shares of Common Stock, the Awardee must repatriate to Russia the proceeds from the sale of shares of Common Stock and any dividends received in relation to the shares within a reasonably short time of receipt. The sale

16



proceeds and dividends (if any) received must be initially credited to the Awardee through a foreign currency account opened in the Awardee153s name at an authorized bank in Russia.

The Awardee is not permitted to sell shares of Common Stock directly to a Russian legal entity or resident.

Securities Law Information. The Award Agreement, the Option, the Plan and all other materials you may receive regarding participation in the Plan do not constitute advertising or an offering of securities in Russia. The issuance of shares of Common Stock under the Plan has not and will not be registered in Russia and, therefore, the shares of Common Stock described in any Plan documents may not be offered or placed in public circulation in Russia.

In no event will shares of Stock acquired upon exercise of the Option be delivered to you in Russia; all shares of Stock acquired upon exercise of the Option will be maintained on your behalf outside of Russia.

SPAIN

Hard Copy Signature Required. The Awardee acknowledges that he or she must sign and return this Award Agreement in order to accept the Option.

Labor Law Acknowledgement. This provision supplements the Nature of the Option section of the Award Agreement:

In accepting the Option, the Awardee acknowledges that the Awardee consents to participation in the Plan and has received a copy of the Plan.

The Awardee understands that the Company has unilaterally, gratuitously and discretionally decided to grant Options under the Plan to individuals who may be employees of the Company or its Related Entities throughout the world. The decision is a limited decision that is entered into upon the express assumption and condition that any grant will not bind the Company or any of its Related Entities. Consequently, the Awardee understands that the Option is granted on the assumption and condition

17



that the Option and any shares of Common Stock acquired upon exercise of the Option shall not become a part of any employment contract (either with the Company or any of its Related Entities) and shall not be considered a mandatory benefit, salary for any purposes (including severance compensation) or any other right whatsoever. In addition, the Awardee understands that this grant would not be made to the Awardee but for the assumptions and conditions referred to above; thus, the Awardee acknowledges and freely accepts that should any or all of the assumptions be mistaken or should any of the conditions not be met for any reason, then any grant of or right to the Option shall be null and void.

Exchange Control Information. The Awardee must declare the purchase of shares of Common Stock to the Direccion General de Pol -tica Comercial y de Inversiones Extranjeras (the "DGPCIE") of the Ministerio de Economia for statistical purposes. The Awardee must also declare ownership of any shares of Common Stock with the Directorate of Foreign Transactions each January while the shares of Common Stock are owned. In addition, if the Awardee wishes to import the ownership title of shares of Common Stock (i.e., Share certificates) into Spain, the Awardee must declare the importation of such securities to the DGPCIE.

When receiving foreign currency payments derived from the ownership of shares of Common Stock (i.e., dividends or sale proceeds), the Awardee must inform the financial institution receiving the payment of the basis upon which such payment is made. The Awardee will need to provide the institution with the following information: (i) the Awardee153s name, address, and fiscal identification number; (ii) the name and corporate domicile of the Company; (iii) the amount of the payment; (iv) the currency used; (v) the country of origin; (vi) the reasons for the payment; and (vii) further information that may be required.

Responsibility for Taxes. This provision supplements the Responsibility for Taxes section of the Award Agreement:

If payment or withholding of the Tax-Related Items (including the Employer153s Liability, as defined below) is not made within 90 days of the event giving rise to the Tax-Related Items (the "Due Date") or such other period specified in Section 222(1)(c) of the U.K. Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003, the amount of any uncollected Tax-Related Items will constitute a loan owed by the Awardee to the Employer, effective on the Due Date. The Awardee agrees that the loan will bear interest at the then-current Official Rate of Her Majesty153s Revenue and Customs ("HMRC"), it will be immediately due and repayable, and the Company or the Employer may recover it at any time thereafter by any of the means referred to in the Responsibility for Taxes section of the Award Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Awardee is a director or executive officer of the Company (within the meaning of Section 13(k) of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended), the Awardee will not be eligible for such a loan to cover the Tax-Related Items. In the event that the Awardee is a director or executive officer and the Tax-Related Items are not collected from or paid by the Awardee by the Due Date, the amount of any uncollected Tax-Related Items will constitute a benefit to the Awardee on which additional income tax and national insurance contributions (including the Employer153s Liability, as defined below) will be payable. The Awardee will be responsible for reporting and paying any income tax and national insurance contributions (including the Employer153s Liability, as defined below) due on this additional benefit directly to HMRC under the self-assessment regime.

Joint Election. As a condition of the Awardee153s participation in the Plan and the exercise of the Option, the Awardee agrees to accept any liability for secondary Class 1 national insurance contributions (the "Employer153s Liability") which may be payable by the Company and/or the Employer in connection with the Option and any event giving rise to Tax-Related Items. To accomplish the foregoing, the Awardee agrees to execute a joint election with the Company (the "Election"), the form of such Election being formally approved by HMRC, and any other consent or elections required to accomplish the transfer of the Employer153s Liability to the Awardee. The Awardee further agrees to execute such other joint elections as may be required between him or her and any successor to the Company and/or the Employer. If the Awardee does not enter into the Election when the Awardee accepts the Award Agreement, or if the Election is revoked at any time by HMRC, the Option will cease vesting and become null and void, and no shares of Common Stock will be acquired under the Plan, without any liability to the Company, the Employer and/or any Affiliate. The Awardee further agrees that the Company and/or the Employer may collect the Employer153s Liability by any of the means set forth in the Responsibility for Taxes section of the Award Agreement.
