AWARD OF PERFORMANCE UNITS
     The Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors of Baker Hughes Incorporated, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), pursuant to the Baker Hughes Incorporated 2002 Director & Officer Long-Term Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), hereby awards to you, the above-named Participant, effective as of the Grant Date set forth above, that number of Performance Units set forth above (each, a “Performance Unit”, and collectively, the “Performance Units”), on the terms and conditions set forth in this Performance Unit Award Agreement (this “Agreement”).
     Each Performance Unit provides you an opportunity to earn a cash payment based upon the achievement of certain performance goals established by the Committee (the “Performance Goals”) for the three-year period beginning January 1, 2010, and ending December 31, 2012 (the “Performance Period”). The Performance Goals and the formulas for determining the amounts payable under this Agreement will be established by the Compensation Committee. The performance metrics utilized in the Performance Goals will be: revenue growth, operating margin and return on net capital employed. There will be three levels of performance applicable under the Performance Goals: Entry Level, Expected Value, and Over Achievement. The Committee may not increase the amount payable under this Agreement.
     If the Performance Goals are not achieved at the Entry Level of performance and a Change in Control of the Company has not occurred on or before the last day of the Performance Period, then the award pursuant to this Agreement shall lapse and be forfeited as of December 31, 2012.
     The Committee’s determination of whether the Performance Goals applicable to this Agreement are achieved shall be binding upon all persons.
     Any amount payable to you pursuant to this Agreement will be paid to you by the Employer on March 13, 2013 (the “Scheduled Payment Date”), unless otherwise provided under the Terms and Conditions. Such payment will be made to you in exchange for the Performance Units and thereafter you shall have no further rights with respect to such Performance Units or this Agreement.
     If a Change in Control of the Company occurs or your employment with the Company and Affiliates terminates on or before the last day of the Performance Period, your rights to the Performance Units and a payment under this Agreement will be determined as provided in the attached Terms and Conditions of Performance Unit Award Agreements (dated January 19, 2010) (the “Terms and Conditions”).

 


 

     The Performance Units that are awarded hereby to you shall be subject to the prohibitions and restrictions set forth herein with respect to the sale or other disposition of such Performance Units and the obligation to forfeit and surrender such Performance Units.
     The Performance Units and your rights under this Agreement may not be sold, assigned, pledged, exchanged, hypothecated or otherwise transferred, encumbered or disposed of (other than by will or the applicable laws of descent and distribution). Any such attempted sale, assignment, pledge, exchange, hypothecation, transfer, encumbrance or disposition in violation of this Agreement shall be void and the Company Group shall not be bound thereby.
     Capitalized terms that are not defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to such terms in the Plan or the Terms and Conditions.
In accepting the award of Performance Units set forth in this Agreement you accept and agree to be bound by all the terms and conditions of the Plan, this Agreement and the Terms and Conditions. The shares of Common Stock (the “shares”) that may be issued under this Plan are registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) under a Registration Statement on Form S-8. A Prospectus describing the Plan and the shares and the Terms and Conditions can be found on the Baker Hughes Direct website at www.bakerhughesdirect.com.

A “Prohibited Activity” shall be deemed to have occurred, as determined by the Committee in its sole and absolute discretion, if you divulge any non-public, confidential or proprietary information of the Company or of its past, present or future affiliates (collectively, the “Baker Hughes Group”), but excluding information that (a) becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of your public use, disclosure, or fault, or (b) becomes available to you on a non-confidential basis after your employment termination date from a source other than a member of the Baker Hughes Group prior to the public use or disclosure by you, provided that such source is not bound by a confidentiality agreement or otherwise prohibited from transmitting the information by a contractual, legal or fiduciary obligation.
3.   TAX WITHHOLDING. To the extent that the receipt of the Performance Units or any payment pursuant to the Agreement results in income, wages or other compensation to you for any income, employment or other tax purposes with respect to which the Company has a withholding obligation, you shall deliver to the Company at the time of such receipt or payment, as the case may be, such amount of money as the Company may require to meet its obligation under applicable tax laws or regulations, and, if you fail to do so, the Company is authorized to withhold from any payment under the Agreement or from any cash or stock remuneration or other payment then or thereafter payable to you any tax required to be withheld by reason of such taxable income, wages or compensation.

4.     NONTRANSFERABILITY. The Agreement is not transferable by you otherwise than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution.
5.     CAPITAL ADJUSTMENTS AND REORGANIZATIONS. The existence of the Performance Units shall not affect in any way the right or power of the Company to make or authorize any adjustment, recapitalization, reorganization or other change in its capital structure or its business, engage in any merger or consolidation, issue any debt or equity securities, dissolve or liquidate, or sell, lease, exchange or otherwise dispose of all or any part of its assets or business, or engage in any other corporate act or proceeding.

7.     EMPLOYMENT RELATIONSHIP. For purposes of the Agreement, you shall be considered to be in the employment of the Company Group as long as you have an employment relationship with the Company Group. The Committee shall determine any questions as to whether and when there has been a termination of such employment relationship, and the cause of such termination, under the Plan and the Committee’s determination shall be final and binding on all persons.
8.     NOT AN EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT. The Agreement is not an employment agreement, and no provision of the Agreement shall be construed or interpreted to create an employment relationship between you and the Company or any Affiliate or guarantee the right to remain employed by the Company or any Affiliate for any specified term.
9.     LIMIT OF LIABILITY. Under no circumstances will the Company or an Affiliate be liable for any indirect, incidental, consequential or special damages (including lost profits) of any form incurred by any person, whether or not foreseeable and regardless of the form of the act in which such a claim may be brought, with respect to the Plan.
10.   EMPLOYER LIABLE FOR PAYMENT. Except as specified in Section 1.2, the legal entity that is a member of the Company Group and that is classified by the Company Group as your employer (the “Employer”) is liable for the payment of any amounts that become due under the Agreement.
11.   DATA PRIVACY. The Company’s Human Resources Department in Houston, Texas (U.S.A.) administers and maintains the data regarding the Plan, the awardees and the performance units granted to awardees for all employees in the Company Group worldwide.
 
    The data administered and maintained by the Company includes information that may be considered personal data, including the name of the awardee, the award granted and the number of performance units included in any award (“Employee Personal Data”). From time to time during the course of your employment in the Company Group, the Company may transfer certain of your Employee Personal Data to Affiliates as necessary for the purpose of implementation, administration and management of your participation in the Plan (the “Purposes”), and the Company and its Affiliates may each further transfer your Employee Personal Data to any third parties assisting the Company in the

The countries to which your Employee Personal Data may be transferred may have data protection standards that are different than those in your home country and that offer a level of data protection that is less than that in your home country.
 
    In accepting the award of the Performance Units set forth in the Agreement, you hereby expressly acknowledge that you understand that from time to time during the course of your employment in the Company Group the Company may transfer your Employee Personal Data to Data Recipients for the Purposes. You further acknowledge that you understand that the countries to which your Employee Personal Data may be transferred may have data protection standards that are different than those in your home country and that offer a level of data protection that is less than that in your home country.
 
    Further, in accepting the award of the Performance Units set forth in the Agreement, you hereby expressly affirm that you do not object, and you hereby expressly consent, to the transfer of your Employee Personal Data by the Company to Data Recipients for the Purposes from time to time during the course of your employment in the Company Group.
 
12.   MISCELLANEOUS. The Agreement is awarded pursuant to and is subject to all of the provisions of the Plan, including amendments to the Plan, if any. In the event of a conflict between these Terms and Conditions and the Plan provisions, the Plan provisions will control. The terms “you” and “your” refer to the Awardee named in the Agreement. Capitalized terms that are not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Plan or the Agreement
