For the avoidance of doubt, the terms and conditions of the Grant Notice are a part of the Stock Option Agreement, unless otherwise specified.

The details and terms and conditions of this Stock Option Agreement shall govern your Option, notwithstanding any less favorable terms and conditions on the same matter set forth in the Plan (subject, however, toSection 15 hereof):

1. Vesting.

(a) Subject to the limitations contained herein, your Option will vest as set forth in your Grant Notice, provided that vesting will cease upon the termination of your Continuous Service.

(b) Notwithstanding any provision of this Stock Option Agreement to the contrary, in the event of a Change in Control, the Option shall, to theextent not then vested and not previously cancelled, become fully vested and exercisable immediately prior to the consummation of such Change in Control.

2. Number of Shares and Exercise Price. The number of shares of Common Stock subject to your Option and your exercise price per share referenced in your Grant Notice may be adjusted from time to time forvarious adjustments in the Company’s equity capital structure, as provided in the Plan.

3. Method of Payment.

(a) Payment of the exercise price is due in full upon exercise of all or any part of your Option. You may elect to make payment ofthe exercise price in cash or by check. Alternatively, provided that at the time of exercise there is a public market for the shares of Common Stock, your exercise may be implemented pursuant to a program developed under Regulation T as promulgatedby the Federal Reserve Board that, prior to the issuance of Common Stock, results in either the receipt of cash (or check) by the Company or the receipt of irrevocable instructions to pay the aggregate exercise price to the Company from the salesproceeds. Notwithstanding the terms of the previous sentence, you may not be permitted to exercise your Option pursuant to a program developed under Regulation T as promulgated by the Federal Reserve Board if such exercise would violate theprovisions of Section 402 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.


(b) You may elect to make payment of the exercise price, in whole or in part, in shares of CommonStock having a Fair Market Value equal to the amount of the aggregate exercise price or such portion thereof, as applicable; provided, however, that you must satisfy all such requirements as may be imposed by the Board including without limitationthat you have held such shares for not less than six months (or such other period as established from time to time by the Board in order to avoid a supplemental charge to earnings for financial accounting purposes).

(c) Where you elect to pay the exercise price of an Option and/or taxes relating to the exercise of an Option by delivering shares of CommonStock, you may, subject to procedures satisfactory to the Board, satisfy such delivery requirement by presenting proof that you are the Beneficial Owner of such shares of Common Stock, in which case the Company shall treat the Option as exercisedwithout further payment and shall withhold such number of shares from the Shares acquired by the exercise of the Option.

(d) TheCompany may permit you to make payment of the exercise price in any other form of legal consideration that may be acceptable to the Board in its sole discretion.

4. Whole Shares. You may exercise your Option only for whole shares of Common Stock.

5. Compliance.

(a) Securities Law Compliance. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary containedherein, you may not exercise your Option unless the Shares of Common Stock issuable upon such exercise are then registered under the Securities Act or, if such Shares are not then so registered, the Company has determined that such exercise andissuance would be exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act. The exercise of your Option must also comply with other applicable laws and regulations governing your Option, and you may not exercise your Option if the Companydetermines that such exercise would not be in material compliance with such laws and regulations.

(b) Plan Compliance.Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, you may not exercise your Option if the terms of the Plan do not permit the exercise of Options, or if the Company exercises its rights under the Plan to suspend, delay or restrict theexercise of Options.

6. Term. You may not exercise your Option before the commencement of its term on the Date of Grant orafter its term expires.

(f) the Expiration Date indicated in the Grant Notice.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the exercise of your Option is prevented within the applicable time periods set forth in Sections 6(b), (c) or (d) for anyreason, your Option shall not expire before the date that is thirty (30) days after the date that you are notified by the Company that the Option is again exercisable, but in any event no later than the Expiration Date indicated in your GrantNotice; provided, however, that if the Grant Notice designates your Option as an Incentive Stock Option, and if any such extension causes the term of your Option to exceed the maximum term allowable for Incentive Stock Options, your Option shallcease to be treated as an Incentive Stock Option and instead shall be treated thereafter as a Nonstatutory Stock Option.

7.Exercise Procedures.

Ihereby make the following certifications and representations with respect to the number of shares of Common Stock of the Company listed above (the “Shares”):

I am aware that my investment in the Company is a speculative investment that has limited liquidity and is subject to the risk of complete loss. I am able, without impairing my financial condition, to hold the Sharesfor an indefinite period and to suffer a complete loss of my investment in the Shares.

I represent and warrant to the Company that I amacquiring and will hold the Shares for investment for my account only, and not with a view to, or for resale in connection with, any “distribution” of the Shares within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933 (the “SecuritiesAct”) or the similar laws of any state or foreign jurisdiction.

I understand that the Shares have not been registered under theSecurities Act, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or under the similar laws of any state or foreign jurisdiction


(collectively, “Applicable Securities Laws”) by reason of a specific exemption therefrom and that the Sharesmust be held indefinitely, unless they are subsequently registered under the Applicable Securities Laws or I obtain an opinion of counsel (in form and substance satisfactory to the Company and its counsel) that registration is not required.

I acknowledge that the Company is under no obligation to register the Shares under Applicable Securities Laws.

I am aware of the adoption of Rule 144 by the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Act, which permits limited public resales ofsecurities acquired in a non-public offering, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions. These conditions may include (without limitation) that certain current public information about the issuer is available, that the resale occurs onlyafter the holding period required by Rule 144 has been satisfied, that the sale occurs through an unsolicited “broker’s transaction” and that the amount of securities being sold during any three-month period does not exceed specifiedlimitations. I understand that the conditions for resale set forth in Rule 144 have not been satisfied and that the Company has no plans to satisfy these conditions in the foreseeable future.

I will not sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of the Shares in violation of the Plan, the agreement under which my right to acquire the Shares wasgranted, Applicable Securities Laws, or the rules promulgated thereunder, including Rule 144 under the Securities Act.

I acknowledge thatI have received and had access to such information as I consider necessary or appropriate for deciding whether to invest in the Shares and that I had an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers from the Company regarding the terms andconditions of the issuance of the Shares.

I acknowledge that the Shares will be subject to certain encumbrances, including, but notlimited to, drag along rights in favor of certain stockholders of the Company, repurchase rights in favor of the Company, limitations on transfer, and other encumbrances set forth in the Plan, Stock Option Agreement, other applicable agreementsand/or described in the Company’s bylaws or certificate of incorporation in effect at such time as the Company or such other person elects to exercise its or his right.

I acknowledge that I am acquiring the Shares subject to all other terms of the Plan, the Stock Option Grant Notice, and the Stock Option Agreement.

I further agree that if required by the Company (or a representative of the underwriter(s)) in connection with the first underwrittenregistration of the offering of any equity securities of the Company under the Securities Act (or any underwritten registration of any securities of the Company prior to that time), for a specified period of time, I will not sell, dispose of,transfer, make any short sale of, grant any option for the purchase of, or enter into any hedging or similar transaction with the same economic effect as a sale, any Shares or other securities of the Company held by me. I further agree to executeand deliver such other agreements as may be reasonably requested by the Company and/or the underwriter(s) that are consistent with the foregoing or that are necessary to give further effect thereto. In order to enforce the foregoing covenant, theCompany may impose stop transfer instructions with respect to my Shares until the end of such period.

I agree, and as a condition of exercise if I am married I will obtain the agreement of my spouse, thatprior to the effectiveness of the first underwritten registration of the Company’s equity securities under the Securities Act, I will not transfer any or all of the Shares unless pursuant to an exception provided in the Plan or the Stock OptionAgreement.

I agree that as a condition to this exercise, the certificates evidencing the Shares shall remain in the physical custody ofthe Company or its designee at all times prior to the last to occur of (i) the date on which all contractual restrictions set forth in the Plan, the Company’s Articles of Incorporation and/or bylaws, or in the documents evidencing theStock Option Agreement lapse, or (ii) the date on which all contractual requirements set forth in the Plan, the Company’s Articles of Incorporation and/or bylaws, or in the documents evidencing the Stock Option Agreement are satisfied.
