Performance Stock Unit Award Agreement
You have been selected to receive an Award under the 2012 Genworth Financial, Inc. Omnibus Incentive Plan (the Plan), on the terms and conditions set forth below. This Award Agreement and the Plan together govern your rights under this Award and set forth all of the conditions and limitations affecting such rights. Unless the context otherwise requires, capitalized terms used in this Award Agreement shall have the meanings ascribed to them on Exhibit A hereto or in the Plan. If there is any inconsistency between the terms of this Award Agreement and the terms of the Plan, the Plans terms shall supersede and replace the conflicting terms of this Award Agreement.
|Grant of Performance Stock Units. You are hereby granted performance stock units (Units) representing the right to earn, on a one-for-one basis, Shares of the Companys Class A common stock (Shares), all in accordance with the terms of this Award Agreement, the Plan, and any rules and procedures adopted by the Committee. The Units represent the right to earn from 0% to [ ]% of the Target Award, based on (i) your continued employment, and (ii) the Companys level of attainment of Performance Goals during the Performance Period, in accordance with the terms of this Award Agreement.
|Grant Date. The Grant Date of your Units is [DATE].
|Target Award. The Target Award of Shares subject to this Award is [ ].
|Performance Goals. The Performance Goals are described on Exhibit B.
|Performance Period. The Performance Period is the period beginning [DATE] and ending [DATE].
|Earning and Vesting of Units. Not later than 60 days after the end of the Performance Period (the Vesting Date), the Committee shall determine and certify the Companys performance against the Performance Goals, and determine the number of Units earned and vested (Confirmed Units). Any Units that fail to vest in accordance with the terms of this Award Agreement will be forfeited and reconveyed to the Company without further consideration or any act or action by you.
|Conversion to Shares. The Confirmed Units shall automatically convert to Shares on the Vesting Date (the Conversion Date). These Shares will be registered on the books of the Company in your name as of the Conversion Date, and the Company shall deliver to you a certificate or certificates, or evidence of book entry, with respect to such Shares.
If for any reason the Committee is unable to certify the Companys performance against the Performance Goals within 60 days after the end of the Performance Period, then the Vesting Date shall be the 60th day following the end of the Performance Period, but the determination of the number of Confirmed Units and the Conversion Date shall be delayed, in the discretion of the Committee, for such period as may be required for the Committee to certify the Companys performance against the Performance Goals, but in no event shall the Conversion Date extend beyond [DATE].
|Termination of Employment. The Units shall be immediately and automatically cancelled upon termination of your service with the Company and its Affiliates prior to the Vesting Date, for any reason other than your death, Total Disability or Retirement. If your service with the Company and its Affiliates terminates prior to the Vesting Date as a result of your death, Total Disability or Retirement, then the Award shall fully vest as of your termination date, and you (or your estate, in the event of your death) shall receive a pro rata payout on the regular Conversion Date, determined by multiplying the Confirmed Shares that otherwise would have paid out based on actual performance for the entire Performance Period, multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of full months elapsed from [DATE] until the date of your termination, and the denominator of which is [ ].
For purposes of this Award Agreement, the following terms shall have the following meanings:
Retirement shall mean your voluntary resignation on or after you have attained age sixty (60) and accumulated five (5) or more years of combined and continuous service with the Company.
Total Disability shall mean a permanent disability that would make you eligible for benefits under the long-term disability program maintained by the Company or any of its Affiliates (without regard to any time period during which the disabling condition must exist) or in the absence of any such program, such meaning as the Committee shall determine.
|Change of Control. The Units shall fully vest as of the effective date of the Change of Control of the Company (Genworth Financial, Inc.); shall be deemed earned based on the target performance being attained for the Performance Period; shall be distributed or paid to you within thirty (30) days following the date of the Change of Control pro rata based on the portion of the performance period elapsed on the date of the Change of Control in cash, Shares (based on the value of the Shares as of the effective date of the Change of Control), other securities, or any combination, as determined by the Committee; and shall thereafter terminate; provided, however, that if, as of the effective date of a Change of Control, you have been designated as a participant under the Companys Amended and Restated 2005 Change of Control Plan or the Companys 2011 Change of Control Plan, or any successor plans thereto, this Section 5 shall not apply and this Award shall instead be governed by the terms and conditions of such plan.
|Payment of Taxes. The Company or any of its Affiliates employing you has the authority and the right to deduct or withhold, or require you to remit to the employer, an amount sufficient to satisfy federal, state, and local taxes (including your FICA obligation) required by law to be withheld with respect to any taxable event arising as a result of the vesting or payment of this Award. With respect to such withholding, the employer may satisfy the tax withholding requirement by withholding Shares having a Fair Market Value as of the date that the amount of tax to be withheld is to be determined as nearly equal as possible to the total minimum statutory tax required to be withheld. The obligations of the Company under this Award Agreement will be conditional on such payment or arrangements, and the Company, and, where applicable, its Affiliates will, to the extent permitted by law, have the right to deduct any such taxes from any payment of any kind otherwise due to you.
|Nontransferability. This Award may not be sold, transferred, pledged, assigned, or otherwise alienated or hypothecated (Transfer), other than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution, except as provided in the Plan. If any prohibited Transfer, whether voluntary or involuntary, of the Award is attempted to be made, or if any attachment, execution, garnishment, or lien shall be attempted to be issued against or placed upon this Award, your right to receive any payment pursuant to the terms of this Award shall be immediately and automatically be forfeited, and this Award Agreement shall be null and void.
|Administration. This Award Agreement and your rights 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 Award Agreement, all of which shall be binding upon you.
|Limitation of Rights. The Units do not confer to you or your beneficiary, executors or administrators any rights of a stockholder of the Company unless and until Shares are in fact issued to such person in connection with the Units. This Award Agreement shall not confer upon you any right to continuation of employment by the Company or any of its Affiliates, nor shall this Award Agreement interfere in any way with the Companys or any of its Affiliates right to terminate your employment at any time.
|Amendment, Modification, Suspension, and Termination. Subject to the terms of the Plan, this Agreement may be modified or amended by the Committee; provided that no such amendment shall materially and adversely affect your rights hereunder without your consent.
