MACROMEDIA, INC. 1992 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN As Adopted September 23, 1992 and Amended Through May 3, 2001 1. PURPOSE. The purpose of the Plan is to provide incentives to attract, retain and motivate eligible persons whose present and potential contributions are important to the success of the Company, its Parent, Subsidiaries and Affiliates, by offering them an opportunity to participate in the Company's future performance through awards of Options, Restricted Stock and Stock Bonuses. Capitalized terms not defined in the text are defined in Section 24. 2. SHARES SUBJECT TO THE PLAN. 2.1 Number of Shares Available. Subject to Sections 2.2 and 18, the total number of Shares reserved and available for grant and issuance pursuant to the Plan shall be 19,780,000 Shares. Any Shares issuable upon exercise of options granted pursuant to the Authorware 1988 Stock Option Plan, the Macromind, Inc. 1989 Incentive Stock Option Plan and 1989 Nonstatutory Stock Option Plan, and the Paracomp, Inc. 1989 Stock Option Plan (the "Prior Plans") that expire or become unexercisable for any reason without having been exercised in full, shall no longer be available for distribution under the Prior Plans, but shall be available for distribution under this Plan. Subject to Sections 2.2 and 18, Shares shall again be available for grant and issuance in connection with future Awards under the Plan that: (a) are subject to issuance upon exercise of an Option but cease to be subject to such Option for any reason other than exercise of such Option, (b) are subject to an Award granted hereunder but are forfeited or are repurchased by the Company at the original issue price, or (c) are subject to an Award that otherwise terminates without Shares being issued. 2.2 Adjustment of Shares. In the event that the number of outstanding Shares is changed by a stock dividend, recapitalization, stock split, reverse stock split, subdivision, combination, reclassification or similar change in the capital structure of the Company without consideration, then (a) the number of Shares reserved for issuance under the Plan, (b) the Exercise Prices of and number of Shares subject to outstanding Options, and (c) the number of Shares subject to other outstanding Awards shall be proportionately adjusted, subject to any required action by the Board or the stockholders of the Company and compliance with applicable securities laws; provided, however, that fractions of a Share shall not be issued but shall either be paid in cash at Fair Market Value or shall be rounded up to the nearest Share, as determined by the Committee; and provided, further, that the Exercise Price of any Option may not be decreased to below the par value of the Shares. 3. ELIGIBILITY. ISOs (as defined in Section 5 below) may be granted only to employees (including officers and directors who are also employees) of the Company or of a Parent or Subsidiary of the Company. All other Awards may be granted to employees, 2 officers, directors, consultants, independent contractors and advisers of the Company or any Parent, Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Company; provided such consultants, contractors and advisers (a) are natural persons; (b) render bona fide services to the Company; and (c) the services are not in connection with the offer and sale of securities in a capital-raising transaction and do not directly or indirectly promote or maintain a market for the Company's securities. No "Named Executive Officer" (as that term is defined in Item 402(a)(3) of Regulation S-K promulgated under the Exchange Act) shall be eligible to receive more than 1,800,000 Shares at any time during the term of this Plan pursuant to the grant of Awards hereunder. A person may be granted more than one Award under the Plan. 4. ADMINISTRATION. 4.1 Committee Authority. The Plan shall be administered by the Committee or the Board acting as the Committee. Subject to the general purposes, terms and conditions of the Plan, and to the direction of the Board, the Committee shall have full power to implement and carry out the Plan. The Committee shall have the authority to: (a) construe and interpret the Plan, any Award Agreement and any other agreement or document executed pursuant to the Plan; (b) prescribe, amend and rescind rules and regulations relating to the Plan; (c) select persons to receive Awards; (d) determine the form and terms of Awards; (e) determine the number of Shares or other consideration subject to Awards; (f) determine whether Awards will be granted singly, in combination, in tandem, in replacement of, or as alternatives to, other Awards under the Plan or any other incentive or compensation plan of the Company or any Parent, Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Company; (g) grant waivers of Plan or Award conditions; (h) determine the vesting, exercisability and payment of Awards; (i) correct any defect, supply any omission, or reconcile any inconsistency in the Plan, any Award or any Award Agreement; (j) determine whether an Award has been earned; and (k) make all other determinations necessary or advisable for the administration of the Plan. B-2 3 4.2 Committee Discretion. Any determination made by the Committee with respect to any Award shall be made in its sole discretion at the time of grant of the Award or, unless in contravention of any express term of the Plan or Award, at any later time, and such determination shall be final and binding on the Company and all persons having an interest in any Award under the Plan. The Committee may delegate to one or more officers of the Company the authority to grant an Award under the Plan to Participants who are not Insiders of the Company. 4.3 Compliance With Code Section 162(m). If two or more members of the Board are Outside Directors, the Committee shall be comprised of at least two members of the Board, all of whom are Outside Directors. 5. OPTIONS. The Committee may grant Options to eligible persons and shall determine whether such Options shall be Incentive Stock Options within the meaning of the Code ("ISOs") or Nonqualified Stock Options ("NQSOs"), the number of Shares subject to the Option, the Exercise Price of the Option, the period during which the Option may be exercised, and all other terms and conditions of the Option, including, in the case of a NQSO and subject to the limits in Section 11 on such transfers, whether the Option or an interest therein may be transferred during the Participant's lifetime, all subject to the following: 5.1 Form of Option Grant. Each Option granted under the Plan shall be evidenced by an Award Agreement which shall expressly identify the Option as an ISO or NQSO ("Stock Option Agreement"), and be in such form and contain such provisions (which need not be the same for each Participant) as the Committee shall from time to time approve, and which shall comply with and be subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan. 5.2 Date of Grant. The date of grant of an Option shall be the date on which the Committee makes the determination to grant such Option, unless otherwise specified by the Committee. The Stock Option Agreement and a copy of the Plan will be delivered to the Participant within a reasonable time after the granting of the Option. 5.3 Exercise Period. Options shall be exercisable within the times or upon the events determined by the Committee as set forth in the Stock Option Agreement; provided, however, that no Option shall be exercisable after the expiration of one hundred twenty (120) months from the date the Option is granted, and provided further that no Option granted to a person who directly or by attribution owns more than ten percent (10%) of the total combined voting power of all classes of stock of the Company or any Parent or Subsidiary of the Company ("Ten Percent Stockholder") shall be exercisable after the expiration of five (5) years from the date the Option is granted. The Committee also may provide for the exercise of Options to become exercisable at one time or from time to time, periodically or otherwise, in such number or percentage as the Committee determines. 5.4 Exercise Price. The Exercise Price shall be determined by the Committee when the Option is granted and may be not less than 100% of the Fair Market Value of the Shares on the date of grant; provided that the Exercise Price of any Option B-3 4 granted to a Ten Percent Stockholder shall not be less than 110% of the Fair Market Value of the Shares on the date of grant. Payment for the Shares purchased may be made in accordance with Section 8 of the Plan. 5.5 Method of Exercise. Options may be exercised only by delivery by the Holder to the Company of a written stock option exercise agreement (the "Exercise Agreement") in a form approved by the Committee (which need not be the same for each Holder), stating the number of Shares being purchased, the restrictions imposed on the Shares, if any, and such representations and agreements regarding Holder's investment intent and access to information, if any, as may be required or desirable by the Company to comply with applicable securities laws, together with payment in full of the Exercise Price for the number of Shares being purchased. 5.6 Termination. Notwithstanding the exercise periods set forth in the Stock Option Agreement, exercise of an Option shall always be subject to the following: (a) If the Participant is Terminated for any reason except death or Disability, then Holder may exercise such Holder's Options only to the extent that such Options would have been exercisable upon the Termination Date no later than ninety (90) days after the Termination Date (or such shorter time period as may be specified in the Stock Option Agreement or such longer time period, not exceeding five (5) years, after the Termination Date as may be determined by the Committee and specified in the Stock Option Agreement, with any exercise beyond three (3) months after the Termination Date deemed to be an NQSO), but in any event, no later than the expiration date of the Options. (b) If the Participant is terminated because of death or Disability (or the participant dies within three months of such termination), then Participant's Options may be exercised only to the extent that such Options would have been exercisable by Participant on the Termination Date and must be exercised by the Holder no later than twelve (12) months after the Termination Date (or such shorter time period as may be specified in the Stock Option Agreement or such longer time period, not exceeding five (5) years, after the Termination Date as may be determined by the Committee and specified in the Stock Option Agreement (with any exercise beyond (i) three (3) months after the Termination Date when the Termination is for any reason other than the Participant's death or disability, within the meaning of Section 22(e)(3) of the Code, or (ii) twelve (12) months after the Termination Date when the Termination is for Participant's death or disability, within the meaning of Section 22(e)(3) of the Code, deemed to be an NQSO), but in any event no later than the expiration date of the Options. B-4 5 5.7 Limitations on Exercise. The Committee may specify a reasonable minimum number of Shares that may be purchased on any exercise of an Option, provided that such minimum number will not prevent Holder from exercising the Option for the full number of Shares for which it is then exercisable. 5.8 Limitations on ISOs. The aggregate Fair Market Value (determined as of the date of grant) of Shares with respect to which ISOs are exercisable for the first time by a Participant during any calendar year (under the Plan or under any other incentive stock option plan of the Company or any Affiliate, Parent or Subsidiary of the Company) shall not exceed $100,000. If the Fair Market Value of Shares on the date of grant with respect to which ISOs are exercisable for the first time by a Participant during any calendar year exceeds $100,000, the Options for the first $100,000 worth of Shares to become exercisable in such calendar year shall be ISOs and the Options for the amount in excess of $100,000 that become exercisable in that calendar year shall be NQSOs. In the event that the Code or the regulations promulgated thereunder are amended after the Effective Date of the Plan to provide for a different limit on the Fair Market Value of Shares permitted to be subject to ISOs, such different limit shall be automatically incorporated herein and shall apply to any Options granted after the effective date of such amendment. 5.9 Modification, Extension or Renewal. The Committee may modify, extend or renew outstanding Options and authorize the grant of new Options in substitution therefor, provided that any such action may not, without the written consent of Participant, impair any of Participant's rights under any Option previously granted. Any outstanding ISO that is modified, extended, renewed or otherwise altered shall be treated in accordance with Section 424(h) of the Code. The Committee may reduce the Exercise Price of outstanding Options without the consent of Participants affected by a written notice to them; provided, however, that the Exercise Price may not be reduced below the minimum Exercise Price that would be permitted under Section 5.4 of the Plan for Options granted on the date the action is taken to reduce the Exercise Price; provided, further, that the Exercise Price shall not be reduced below the par value of the Shares, if any. 5.10 No Disqualification. Notwithstanding any other provision in the Plan, no term of the Plan relating to ISOs shall be interpreted, amended or altered, nor shall any discretion or authority granted under the Plan be exercised, so as to disqualify the Plan under Section 422 of the Code or, without the consent of the Participant affected, to disqualify any ISO under Section 422 of the Code. 6. RESTRICTED STOCK. A Restricted Stock Award is an offer by the Company to sell to an eligible person Shares that are subject to restrictions. The Committee shall determine to whom an offer will be made, the number of Shares the person may purchase, the price to be paid (the "Purchase Price"), the restrictions to which the Shares shall be subject, and all other terms and conditions of the Restricted Stock Award, subject to the following: B-5 6 6.1 Form of Restricted Stock Award. All purchases under a Restricted Stock Award made pursuant to the Plan shall be evidenced by an Award Agreement ("Restricted Stock Purchase Agreement") that shall be in such form (which need not be the same for each Participant) as the Committee shall from time to time approve, and shall comply with and be subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan. The offer of Restricted Stock shall be accepted by the Holder's execution and delivery of the Restricted Stock Purchase Agreement and full payment for the Shares to the Company within thirty (30) days from the date the Restricted Stock Purchase Agreement is delivered to the person. If such person does not execute and deliver the Restricted Stock Purchase Agreement along with full payment for the Shares to the Company within thirty (30) days, then the offer shall terminate, unless otherwise determined by the Committee. 6.2 Purchase Price. The Purchase Price of Shares sold pursuant to a Restricted Stock Award shall be determined by the Committee and shall be at least 85% of the Fair Market Value of the Shares when the Restricted Stock Award is granted, except in the case of a sale to a Ten Percent Stockholder, in which case the Purchase Price shall be 100% of the Fair Market Value. Payment of the Purchase Price may be made in accordance with Section 8 of the Plan. 6.3 Restrictions. Restricted Stock Awards shall be subject to such restrictions as the Committee may impose. The Committee may provide for the lapse of such restrictions in installments and may accelerate or waive such restrictions, in whole or part, based on length of service, performance or such other factors or criteria as the Committee may determine. 7. STOCK BONUSES. 7.1 Awards of Stock Bonuses. A Stock Bonus is an award of Shares (which may consist of Restricted Stock) for services rendered to the Company or any Parent, Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Company. A Stock Bonus may be awarded for past services already rendered to the Company, or any Parent, Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Company pursuant to an Award Agreement (the "Stock Bonus Agreement") that shall be in such form (which need not be the same for each Participant) as the Committee shall from time to time approve, and shall comply with and be subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan. A Stock Bonus may be awarded upon satisfaction of such performance goals as are set out in advance in Participant's individual Award Agreement (the "Performance Stock Bonus Agreement") that shall be in such form (which need not be the same for each Participant) as the Committee shall from time to time approve, and shall comply with and be subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan. Stock Bonuses may vary from Participant to Participant and between groups of Participants, and may be based upon the achievement of the Company, Parent, Subsidiary or Affiliate and/or individual performance factors or upon such other criteria as the Committee may determine. 7.2 Terms of Stock Bonuses. The Committee shall determine to whom a Stock Bonus shall be granted, the number of Shares to be awarded to the Participant, whether such Shares shall be Restricted Stock and all other terms and conditions of the Stock Bonus. If the Stock Bonus is being earned upon the satisfaction of performance goals pursuant to a Performance Stock Bonus Agreement, then the Committee B-6 7 shall determine: (a) the nature, length and starting date of any period during which performance is to be measured (the "Performance Period") for each Stock Bonus; (b) the performance goals and criteria to be used to measure the performance, if any; (c) the number of Shares that may be awarded to the Participant; and (d) the extent to which such Stock Bonuses have been earned. Performance Periods may overlap and Participants may participate simultaneously with respect to Stock Bonuses that are subject to different Performance Periods and different performance goals and other criteria. The number of Shares may be fixed or may vary in accordance with such performance goals and criteria as may be determined by the Committee. The Committee may adjust the performance goals applicable to the Stock Bonuses to take into account changes in law and accounting or tax rules and to make such adjustments as the Committee deems necessary or appropriate to reflect the impact of extraordinary or unusual items, events or circumstances to avoid windfalls or hardships. 7.3 Form of Payment. The earned portion of a Stock Bonus may be paid currently or on a deferred basis with such interest or dividend equivalent, if any, as the Committee may determine. Payment may be made in the form of cash, whole Shares, including Restricted Stock, or a combination thereof, either in a lump sum payment or in installments, all as the Committee shall determine. 7.4 Termination During Performance Period. If a Participant is Terminated during a Performance Period for any reason, then such Holder shall be entitled to payment (whether in Shares, cash or otherwise) with respect to the Stock Bonus only to the extent earned as of the date of Termination in accordance with the Performance Stock Bonus Agreement, unless the Committee shall determine otherwise. 8. PAYMENT FOR SHARE PURCHASES. 8.1 Payment. Payment for Shares purchased pursuant to the Plan may be made in cash (by check) or, where expressly approved for the Participant by the Committee and where permitted by law: (a) in the case of exercise by the Participant, Participant's guardian or legal representative or the authorized legal representative of Participant's heirs or legatees after Participant's death, by cancellation of indebtedness of the Company to the Participant; (b) by surrender of Shares that either: (1) have been owned by Holder for more than six (6) months and have been paid for within the meaning of SEC Rule 144 (and, if such shares were purchased from the Company by use of a promissory note, such note has been fully paid with respect to such Shares); or (2) were obtained by Holder in the public market; (c) by tender of a full recourse promissory note having such terms as may be approved by the Committee and bearing interest at a rate sufficient to avoid imputation of income under Sections 483 and 1274 of the Code; provided, however, that Holders who are not employees of the B-7 8 Company shall not be entitled to purchase Shares with a promissory note unless the note is adequately secured by collateral other than the Shares; provided, further, that the portion of the Purchase Price equal to the par value of the Shares, if any, must be paid in cash; (d) in the case of exercise by the Participant, Participant's guardian or legal representative or the authorized legal representative of Participant's heirs or legatees after Participant's death, by waiver of compensation due or accrued to Participant for services rendered; (e) by tender of property; (f) with respect only to purchases upon exercise of an Option, and provided that a public market for the Company's stock exists: (1) through a "same day sale" commitment from Holder and a broker-dealer that is a member of the National Association of Securities Dealers (an "NASD Dealer") whereby Holder irrevocably elects to exercise the Option and to sell a portion of the Shares so purchased to pay for the Exercise Price, and whereby the NASD Dealer irrevocably commits upon receipt of such Shares to forward the Exercise Price directly to the Company; or (2) through a "margin" commitment from Holder and an NASD Dealer whereby Holder irrevocably elects to exercise the Option and to pledge the Shares so purchased to the NASD Dealer in a margin account as security for a loan from the NASD Dealer in the amount of the Exercise Price, and whereby the NASD Dealer irrevocably commits upon receipt of such Shares to forward the exercise price directly to the Company; or (g) by any combination of the foregoing. 8.2 Loan Guarantees. The Committee may help the Participant pay for Shares purchased under the Plan by authorizing a guarantee by the Company of a third-party loan to the Participant. 9. WITHHOLDING TAXES. 9.1 Withholding Generally. Whenever Shares are to be issued in satisfaction of Awards granted under the Plan, the Company may require the Holder to remit to the Company an amount sufficient to satisfy federal, state and local withholding tax requirements prior to the delivery of any certificate or certificates for such Shares. Whenever, under the Plan, payments in satisfaction of Awards are to be made in cash, such payment shall be net of an amount sufficient to satisfy federal, state, and local withholding tax requirements. B-8 9 9.2 Stock Withholding. When, under applicable tax laws, a Participant incurs tax liability in connection with the exercise or vesting of any Award that is subject to tax withholding and the Participant is obligated to pay the Company the amount required to be withheld, the Committee may in its sole discretion allow the Participant to satisfy the minimum withholding tax obligation by electing to have the Company withhold from the Shares to be issued that number of Shares having a Fair Market Value equal to the minimum amount required to be withheld, determined on the date that the amount of tax to be withheld is to be determined. All elections by a Participant to have Shares withheld for this purpose will be made in accordance with the requirements established by the Committee and be in writing in a form acceptable to the Committee. 10. PRIVILEGES OF STOCK OWNERSHIP. 10.1 Voting and Dividends. No Holder shall have any of the rights of a stockholder with respect to any Shares until the Shares are issued to the Holder. After Shares are issued to the Holder, the Holder shall be a stockholder and have all the rights of a stockholder with respect to such Shares, including the right to vote and receive all dividends or other distributions made or paid with respect to such Shares; provided, that if such Shares are Restricted Stock, then any new, additional or different securities the Holder may become entitled to receive with respect to such Shares by virtue of a stock dividend, stock split or any other change in the corporate or capital structure of the Company shall be subject to the same restrictions as the Restricted Stock; provided, further, that the Holder shall have no right to retain such dividends or distributions with respect to Shares that are repurchased at the Participant's original Purchase Price pursuant to Section 12. 10.2 Financial Statements. The Company shall provide financial statements to each Holder prior to such Holder 's purchase of Shares under the Plan, and to each Holder annually during the period such Holder has Options outstanding; provided, however, the Company shall not be required to provide such financial statements to Holders who are also Participants and whose services in connection with the Company assure them access to equivalent information. 11. TRANSFERABILITY. Except as otherwise provided in this Section 11, no Award and no interest therein may be sold, pledged, assigned, hypothecated, transferred or disposed of in any manner other than by will and by the laws of descent and distribution and no Award may be made subject to execution, attachment or similar process: (a) All Awards other the NQSO's. All Awards other than NQSO's shall be exercisable: (i) during the Participant's lifetime, only by (A) the Participant, or (B) the Participant's guardian or legal representative; and (ii) after Participant's death, by the legal representative of the Participant's heirs or legatees; and (b) NQSOs. Unless otherwise restricted by the Committee, an NQSO Option shall be exercisable: (i) during the Participant's lifetime only by (A) the Participant, (B) the Participant's guardian or legal representative, (C) a Family Member of the Participant B-9 10 who has acquired the Option by Permitted Transfer; and (ii) after Participant's death, by the legal representative of the Participant's heirs or legatees. 12. RESTRICTIONS ON SHARES. At the discretion of the Committee, the Company may reserve to itself and/or its assignee(s) in the Award Agreement (a) a right of first refusal to purchase all Shares that a Holder may propose to transfer to a third party, and/or (b) a right to repurchase a portion of or all Shares held by a Holder following the related Participant's Termination at any time within ninety (90) days after the later of Participant's Termination Date and the date Participant purchases Shares under the Plan, for cash or cancellation of purchase money indebtedness, at: (A) with respect to Shares that are "Vested" (as defined in the Award Agreement), the higher of: (l) the original Purchase Price under the Award, or (2) the Fair Market Value of such Shares on Participant's Termination Date, provided, such right of repurchase terminates when the Company's securities become publicly traded; or (B) with respect to Shares that are not "Vested" (as defined in the Award Agreement), at the original Purchase Price under the Award, provided, that the right to repurchase at the original Purchase Price lapses at the rate of at least 20% per year over 5 years from the date the Shares were purchased, and if the right to repurchase is assignable, the assignee must pay the Company, upon assignment of the right to repurchase, cash equal to the excess of the Fair Market Value of the Shares over the original Purchase Price. 13. CERTIFICATES. All certificates for Shares or other securities delivered under the Plan shall be subject to such stock transfer orders, legends and other restrictions as the Committee may deem necessary or advisable, including restrictions under any applicable federal, state or foreign securities law, or any rules, regulations and other requirements of the SEC or any stock exchange or automated quotation system upon which the Shares may be listed. 14. ESCROW; PLEDGE OF SHARES. To enforce any restrictions on a Holder's Shares, the Committee may require the Holder to deposit all certificates, together with stock powers or other instruments of transfer approved by the Committee, appropriately endorsed in blank, with the Company or an agent designated by the Company to hold in escrow until such restrictions have lapsed or terminated, and the Committee may cause a legend or legends referencing such restrictions to be placed on the certificates. Any Participant who is permitted to execute a promissory note as partial or full consideration for the purchase of Shares under the Plan shall be required to pledge and deposit with the Company all or part of the Shares so purchased as collateral to secure the payment of Participant's obligation to the Company under the promissory note; provided, however, that the Committee may require or accept other or additional forms of collateral to secure the payment of such obligation and, in any event, the Company shall have full recourse against the Participant under the promissory note notwithstanding any pledge of the Participant's Shares or other collateral. In connection with any pledge of the Shares, Participant shall be required to execute and deliver a written pledge agreement in such form as the Committee shall from time to time approve. The Shares purchased with the promissory note may be released from the pledge on a pro-rata basis as the promissory note is paid. 15. EXCHANGE AND BUYOUT OF AWARDS. The Committee may, at any time or from time to time, authorize the Company, with the consent of the respective Holders, to B-10 11 issue new Awards in exchange for the surrender and cancellation of any or all outstanding Awards. The Committee may at any time buy from a Participant an Award previously granted with payment in cash, Shares (including Restricted Stock) or other consideration, based on such terms and conditions as the Committee and the Holder shall agree. 16. SECURITIES LAW AND OTHER REGULATORY COMPLIANCE. An Award shall not be effective unless such Award is in compliance with all applicable federal and state securities laws, rules and regulations of any governmental body, and the requirements of any stock exchange or automated quotation system upon which the Shares may then be listed, as they are in effect on the date of grant of the Award and also on the date of exercise or other issuance. Notwithstanding any other provision in the Plan, the Company shall have no obligation to issue or deliver certificates for Shares under the Plan prior to (a) obtaining any approvals from governmental agencies that the Company determines are necessary or advisable, and/or (b) completion of any registration or other qualification of such shares under any state or federal law or ruling of any governmental body that the Company determines to be necessary or advisable. The Company shall be under no obligation to register the Shares with the SEC or to effect compliance with the registration, qualification or listing requirements of any state securities laws, stock exchange or automated quotation system, and the Company shall have no liability for any inability or failure to do so. 17. NO OBLIGATION TO EMPLOY. Nothing in the Plan or any Award granted under the Plan shall confer or be deemed to confer on any Participant any right to continue in the employ of, or other relationship with, the Company or any Parent, Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Company or limit in any way the right of the Company or any Parent, Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Company to terminate Participant's employment or other relationship at any time, with or without cause. 18. CORPORATE TRANSACTIONS. 18.1 Assumption or Replacement of Awards by Successor. In the event of (a) a merger or consolidation in which the Company is not the surviving corporation (other than a merger or consolidation with a wholly-owned subsidiary, a reincorporation of the Company in a different jurisdiction, or other transaction in which there is no substantial change in the stockholders of the Company and the Awards granted under the Plan are assumed or replaced by the successor corporation, which assumption shall be binding on all Holders), (b) a dissolution or liquidation of the Company, (c) the sale of substantially all of the assets of the Company, or (d) any other transaction which qualifies as a "corporate transaction" under Section 424(a) of the Code wherein the stockholders of the Company give up all of their equity interest in the Company (except for the acquisition, sale or transfer of all or substantially all of the outstanding shares of the Company), any or all outstanding Awards may be assumed or replaced by the successor corporation, which assumption or replacement shall be binding on all Holders. In the alternative, the successor corporation may substitute equivalent Awards or provide substantially similar consideration to Holders as was provided to stockholders (after taking into account the existing provisions of the Awards). The successor corporation may also issue, in place of outstanding Shares of the Company held by the Holder, substantially B-11 12 similar shares or other property subject repurchase restrictions no less favorable to the Holder. 18.2 Expiration of Options. In the event such successor corporation, if any, refuses to assume or substitute the Options, as provided above, pursuant to a transaction described in Subsection 18.1(a) above, such Options shall expire on such transaction at such time and on such conditions as the Board shall determine. In the event such successor corporation, if any, refuses to assume or substitute the Options as provided above, pursuant to a transaction described in Subsections 18.1(b), (c) or (d) above, or there is no successor corporation, and if the Company ceases to exist as a separate corporate entity, then, notwithstanding any contrary terms in the Award Agreement, the Options shall expire on a date at least twenty (20) days after the Board gives written notice to Holders specifying the terms and conditions of such termination. 18.3 Other Treatment of Awards. Subject to any greater rights granted to Holders under the foregoing provisions of this Section 18, in the event of the occurrence of any transaction described in Section 18.1, any outstanding Awards shall be treated as provided in the applicable agreement or plan of merger, consolidation, dissolution, liquidation, sale of assets or other "corporate transaction." 18.4 Assumption of Awards by the Company. The Company, from time to time, also may substitute or assume outstanding awards granted by another company, whether in connection with an acquisition of such other company or otherwise, by either (a) granting an Award under the Plan in substitution of such other company's award, or (b) assuming such award as if it had been granted under the Plan if the terms of such assumed award could be applied to an Award granted under the Plan. Such substitution or assumption shall be permissible if the holder of the substituted or assumed award would have been eligible to be granted an Award under the Plan if the other company had applied the rules of the Plan to such grant. In the event the Company assumes an award granted by another company, the terms and conditions of such award shall remain unchanged (except that the exercise price and the number and nature of Shares issuable upon exercise of any such option will be adjusted appropriately pursuant to Section 424(a) of the Code). In the event the Company elects to grant a new Option rather than assuming an existing option, such new Option may be granted with a similarly adjusted Exercise Price. 19. ADOPTION AND STOCKHOLDER APPROVAL. The Plan shall become effective on the date that it is adopted by the Board (the "Effective Date"). The Plan shall be approved by the stockholders of the Company (excluding Shares issued pursuant to this Plan), consistent with applicable laws, within twelve months before or after the Effective Date. Upon the Effective Date, the Board may grant Awards pursuant to the Plan; provided, however, that: (a) no Option may be exercised prior to initial stockholder approval of the Plan; (b) no Option granted pursuant to an increase in the number of Shares approved by the Board shall be exercised prior to the time such increase has been approved by the stockholders of the Company; and (c) in the event that stockholder approval is not obtained within the time period provided herein, all Awards granted hereunder shall be canceled, any Shares issued pursuant to any Award shall be canceled and any purchase of Shares hereunder shall be rescinded. B-12 13 20. TERM OF PLAN. The Plan will terminate ten (10) years from the Effective Date or, if earlier, the date of stockholder approval. 21. AMENDMENT OR TERMINATION OF PLAN. The Board may at any time terminate or amend the Plan in any respect, including without limitation amendment of any form of Award Agreement or instrument to be executed pursuant to the Plan; provided, however, that the Board shall not, without the approval of the stockholders of the Company, amend the Plan in any manner that requires such stockholder approval pursuant to the Code or the regulations promulgated thereunder as such provisions apply to ISO plans. 22. NONEXCLUSIVITY OF THE PLAN. Neither the adoption of the Plan by the Board, the submission of the Plan to the stockholders of the Company for approval, nor any provision of the Plan shall be construed as creating any limitations on the power of the Board to adopt such additional compensation arrangements as it may deem desirable, including, without limitation, the granting of stock options and bonuses otherwise than under the Plan, and such arrangements may be either generally applicable or applicable only in specific cases. 23. GOVERNING LAW.
