This excerpt taken from the ZBRA 10-Q filed Apr 30, 2008.
No Service or Employment Rights. No provision of this Stock Agreement or of the Restricted Stock granted hereunder shall give the Participant any right to continue in the service or employ of the Company or any Subsidiary, create any inference as to the length of employment or service of the Participant, affect the right of the Company or any Subsidiary to terminate the employment or service of the Participant, with or without Cause, or give the Participant any right to participate in any employee welfare or benefit plan or other program (other than the Plan) of the Company or any Subsidiary.
Plan Document Governs. The Restricted Stock is granted pursuant to the Plan, and the Restricted Stock and this Stock Agreement are in all respects governed by the Plan and subject to all of the terms and provisions thereof, regardless of whether such terms and provisions are incorporated in this Stock Agreement by reference or are expressly cited. Any inconsistency between the Stock Agreement and the Plan shall be resolved in favor of the Plan. Participant hereby acknowledges receipt of a copy of the Plan.
Beneficiary Designation. The Participant may, from time to time, in accordance with procedures set forth by the Committee, name any beneficiary or beneficiaries (who may be named contingently or successively) to whom any benefit under this Stock Agreement is to be paid in case of his or her death before he or she receives any or all of such benefit. Each such designation shall revoke all prior designations by the Participant, shall be in a form prescribed by the Company, and will be effective only when filed by the Participant in writing with the Committee during the Participants lifetime. In the absence of any such designation, benefits remaining unpaid at the Participants death shall be paid to the Participants estate or exercised by the Participants estate.
Administration. This Stock Agreement and the rights of the Participant hereunder are subject to all the terms and conditions of the Plan, as the same may be amended from time to time, as well as to such rules and regulations as the Committee may adopt for administration of the Plan. It is expressly understood that the Committee is authorized to administer, construe, and make all determinations necessary or appropriate to the administration of the Plan and this Stock Agreement, all of which shall be binding upon the Participant.
No Vested Right In Future Awards. Participant acknowledges and agrees (by executing this Stock Agreement) that the granting of Restricted Stock under this Stock Agreement is made on a fully discretionary basis by the Company and that this Stock Agreement does not lead to a vested right to further restricted stock awards in the future.
Use Of Personal Data. By executing this Stock Agreement, Participant acknowledges and agrees to the collection, use, processing and transfer of certain personal data, including his or her name, salary, nationality, job title, position and details of all past Awards and current Awards outstanding under the Plan (Data), for the purpose of managing and administering the Plan. The Participant is not obliged to consent to such collection, use, processing and transfer of Data, but a refusal to provide such consent may affect his or her ability to participate in the Plan. The Company, or its Subsidiaries, may transfer Data among themselves or to third parties as necessary for the purpose of implementation, administration and management of the Plan. These various recipients of Data may be located elsewhere throughout the world. The Participant authorizes these various recipients of Data to receive, possess, use, retain and transfer the Data, in electronic or other form, for the purposes of implementing, administering and managing the Plan. The Participant may, at any time, review Data with respect to the Participant and require any necessary amendments to such Data. The Participant may withdraw his or her consent to use Data herein by notifying the Company in writing; however, the Participant understands that by withdrawing his or her consent to use Data, the Participant may affect his or her ability to participate in the Plan.
Severability. If one or more provisions of this Stock Agreement (including, without limitations, the provisions of Section 5 hereof) are held to be unenforceable under applicable law to any extent, such provision(s) shall, to that extent, be excluded from this Stock Agreement and the balance of the Stock Agreement shall be interpreted as if such provision(s) were so excluded to that extent and shall be enforceable in accordance with its terms.
Waiver; Cumulative Rights. The failure or delay of either party to require performance by the other party of any provision hereof shall not affect its right to require performance of such provision unless and until such performance has been waived in writing. Each and every right hereunder is cumulative and may be exercised in part or in whole from time to time.
Notices. Any notice which either party hereto may be required or permitted to give the other shall be in writing and may be delivered personally or by mail, postage prepaid, addressed to the Secretary of the Company, at its then corporate headquarters, and the Participant at the Participants address as shown on the Companys records, or to such other address as the Participant, by notice to the Company, may designate in writing from time to time.
Counterparts. This Stock Agreement may be signed in two counterparts, each of which shall be an original, but both of which shall constitute but one and the same instrument.
Successors and Assigns. This Stock Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon each successor and assign of the Company. All obligations imposed upon the Participant, and all rights granted to the Company hereunder, shall be binding upon the Participants heirs, legal representatives and successors.
Governing Law. This Stock Agreement and the Restricted Stock granted hereunder shall be governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to provisions thereof regarding conflict of laws.
Entire Agreement. This Stock Agreement, together with the Plan, constitute the entire obligation of the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof and shall supersede any prior expressions of intent or understanding with respect to this transaction.
Amendment. Any amendment to this Stock Agreement shall be in writing and signed by the Company.
Headings and Construction. The headings contained in this Stock Agreement are for reference purposes only and shall not affect the meaning or interpretation of this Stock Agreement.
