Exhibit 10(m)
 
Texas Instruments Incorporated
Restricted Stock Unit Award Agreement
(Executive Officers)

RSU Form No. 2
2009 LTIP


Your award of restricted stock units (the “Award”) is subject to the following terms and conditions, your acceptance of which is required within 120 days of the Grant Date (as defined in Section 12 below).  Failure to accept this Agreement by such date will result in termination of the Award without any shares being issued.>

The capitalized terms in this Agreement have the meaning stated in Section 12 except as otherwise specified.

1.  
Share Issuance.  Each restricted stock unit represents the right to receive one share of common stock of the Company.  The shares covered by this Award will be issued in your name on, or as soon as practicable (but no later than 60 days) after, the date of vesting stated on your Employee Stock Grant Communication (“Vesting Date”), except as provided below.

2.
Change in Employment Status.  The effect of changes in your employment status with TI before the Vesting Date will be as follows:

 
(a)
Termination due to death or permanent disability:  The Award will continue to full term subject to the other terms and conditions of this Agreement, and shares will be issued to you or to your personal representatives, heirs, legatees or distributees, as applicable, at such times and in such number and manner as if you were still an employee of TI on the Vesting Date.

 
(b)
Termination (except for cause) when you are retirement eligible (normal or early) either under the terms of the TI retirement or pension plan in your home country or the country in which you work, as applicable (regardless of whether you are a participant in such plan), or if there is no such plan, as may be set forth in the laws or regulations in your home country or the country in which you work, as applicable:  The Award will continue to full term subject to the other terms and conditions of this Agreement, except that (subject to Section 2(c) and 2(e)) the number of shares issuable to you on the Vesting Date will be reduced pro rata as follows:

The number of shares to be issued will be the number specified for the Vesting Date on the Employee Stock Grant Communication, times a fraction equal to your Pre-Retirement Period divided by the Vesting Period.  If the number of shares calculated pursuant to the previous sentence includes a fraction of a share, the number will be rounded up to the next whole share.  If your Award provides for more than one Vesting Date, this calculation will be done to determine the number of shares issuable on each Vesting Date.

 

 

 
(c)
Involuntary Termination after a Change in Control:  If you experience an Involuntary Termination within 24 months after a Change in Control, then shares will be issued to you as described in Section 11(i) of the Plan, and the number of shares will not be reduced by Section 2(b) or 2(e) of this Agreement.

 
(d)
Termination under other circumstances:  For any termination other than those described above in this Section 2, the Award will terminate and become void without any shares being issued.

 
(e)
Commencement of a Bridge to Retirement even if you subsequently return to full- or part-time employment with TI:  The Award will continue to full term subject to the other terms and conditions of this Agreement, except that (subject to Section 2(c)) the number of shares issuable to you on the Vesting Date will be reduced pro rata as follows:

The number of shares to be issued will be the number specified for the Vesting Date on the Employee Stock Grant Communication, times a fraction equal to your Pre-Bridge Period divided by the Vesting Period.  If the number of shares calculated pursuant to the previous sentence includes a fraction of a share, the number will be rounded up to the next whole share.  If your Award provides for more than one Vesting Date, this calculation will be done to determine the number of shares to be issuable on each Vesting Date.

 
(f)
Other changes in employment status:  No changes in your employment status at TI other than those described above will affect the Award.

3.
Confidential Information and Competition.  See Section 9, particularly Section 9(c), for the effect of disclosure of confidential information or of competition with TI.

4.
Employee Stock Grant Communication.  This Award was granted by the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Committee”).  In the event of a conflict between the Employee Stock Grant Communication and the records of the Committee, the latter shall govern and be determinative.

5.
Dividend Equivalents.  Each year in which this Award is in effect, you will receive a payment equivalent to the cash dividends you would have received if the shares to which you are entitled under this Award, but not yet issued in your name, had already been issued to you (“Dividend Equivalents”); provided, however, that no payment will be made if your Award has terminated before the last dividend record date of the year for any reason other than vesting.  The payment to which you are entitled under this paragraph will be made once each year on or as soon as practicable after the date of the last cash dividend payment in the year (but in any event before year-end).  The Dividend Equivalents will be calculated for the record dates on which this Award was in effect during the year.  If the number of shares to which you are entitled under this Award is reduced pursuant to Section 2(b) or 2(e), then your right to dividend equivalents will be correspondingly reduced with effect from the date of your retirement or commencement of a Bridge to Retirement, as applicable.

6.
Continuing Employment.  This Award will not constitute or be evidence of any agreement or understanding, expressed or implied, on the part of TI to employ you for any specific period.

7.
Transferability.  Your Award is not transferable except by will or by the laws of descent and distribution.  During your lifetime, the shares issuable hereunder may be issued only to you.

8.
Long-Term Incentive Plan.  Your Award is subject to all of the terms and conditions of the Plan.  In the event of any conflict between such terms and conditions and those set forth herein, the terms of the Plan shall govern and be determinative.

9.
Confidential Information, Competition and Recoupment Policy.  By accepting your Award, and in consideration for the Award and for the Company’s obligations set forth in this Agreement, you agree with the Company as follows:

 
(a)
You recognize and acknowledge that in the course of your employment with TI, you have obtained private or confidential information and proprietary data relating to TI, including but not limited to TI’s trade secrets (“Confidential Information”).  TI agrees that it will continue to provide you with access to its Confidential Information to the extent necessary for you to carry out the duties of your employment with TI.

 
(b)
You agree not to use or disclose to third parties, either directly or indirectly, Confidential Information at any time, except with the prior written consent of TI.  Without intending to limit the remedies available to TI, you acknowledge that damages at law will be an insufficient remedy to TI if you violate the terms of this Section 9(b) and agree that TI may apply for and have injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction specifically to enforce the terms of this paragraph upon the breach or threatened breach of any such terms or otherwise specifically to enforce such terms.

 
(c)
You agree that, if, during your employment and for a period of two years thereafter you engage in Competition (as defined in Section 12(d)), either directly or indirectly, for your own benefit or on behalf of any other person or entity, or, if at any time, you use or disclose to third parties any Confidential Information without the written consent of TI, then (i) the Company’s obligation to issue shares under this Award will terminate and become void, and (ii) you shall repay immediately to TI the Fair Market Value (as defined in Section 12(m) below) of any shares of stock issued to you (or immediately surrender to the Company the same number of shares of stock as were issued to you) under this Award within three years prior to termination of your employment or any time after termination of your employment.  If your Award provides for more than one Vesting Date, then payment shall be made, or shares surrendered, with respect to each such Vesting Date.  Any amount payable (or number of shares subject to surrender) to the Company pursuant to this provision may be reduced or waived as the Company, in its sole judgment, deems warranted by the circumstances.

(d)
In addition, you agree that this Award is subject to the recoupment policy adopted by the Committee and in effect on the effective date of this Award.

 
(e)
You recognize and acknowledge that the provisions of this Section 9 are entered into by you in consideration of, and as a material inducement to, the agreements by the Company herein as well as an inducement for the Company to enter into this Agreement, and that, but for your agreement to the provisions of this Section 9, the Company would not have entered into this Agreement.

10.
Responsibility for Taxes.  You acknowledge that the ultimate liability for income tax, social insurance or other tax-related withholding (“Tax-Related Items”), including any taxes under Section 409A of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code, in connection with this Award, the payment of Dividend Equivalents or the issuance of shares hereunder, or the subsequent sale of such shares is your responsibility, and that TI makes (a) no representations or undertakings with respect to the treatment for tax purposes of this Award, any shares or Dividend Equivalents received hereunder, the sale of such shares or any dividends paid on issued shares and (b) does not commit to structure the grant to reduce your liability for Tax-Related Items.  You authorize TI to withhold all applicable Tax-Related Items legally payable by you from your wages or other cash compensation paid to you by TI, from Dividend Equivalents or from proceeds of the sale of the shares.  If permissible under local law, TI may (a) sell or arrange for the sale of shares that you acquire to meet the withholding obligation for Tax-Related Items, and/or (b) withhold shares, provided that TI only withholds the number of shares necessary to satisfy the minimum withholding amount.  Finally, you shall pay to TI any amount of Tax-Related Items that TI may be required to withhold that cannot be satisfied by the means described above.

11.
Nature of Grant.  In accepting this Award, you acknowledge that:  (a) 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, as provided in the Plan; (b) all decisions with respect to future awards, if any, will be at the sole discretion of the Company; (c) the Award is voluntary and occasional and does not create any contractual or other right to receive future Awards, or benefits in lieu of Awards; (d) you are voluntarily participating in the Plan; (e) your Award is an extraordinary item that does not constitute compensation for services rendered to TI; (f) your Award is not part of normal or expected compensation or salary for any purposes, including, but not limited to, calculating any severance, termination, pension or retirement benefits or similar payments; (g) the Award will not be interpreted to form an employment contract or relationship with TI; (h) the future value of the underlying shares is unknown and cannot be predicted with certainty; and (i) if you receive shares, the value of such shares may increase or decrease in value.
