THIS DIRECTOR RESTRICTED STOCK AWARD AGREEMENT (this Award) is made as of
May 10, 2012 (the Grant Date), by and between Dril-Quip, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the Company), and
W I T N E S S E T H:
WHEREAS, pursuant to the 2004 Incentive Plan
of Dril-Quip, Inc., as amended and restated effective May 10, 2012 (the Plan), the Compensation Committee (the Committee) of the Board of Directors of the Company (the
Board) has determined that it would be in the interest of the Company and its stockholders to grant restricted shares of Company common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the Common Stock), as
provided herein, in order to encourage the Grantee to continue to serve as a member of the Board, to encourage the sense of proprietorship of the Grantee in the Company and to stimulate the active interest of the Grantee in the development and
financial success of the Company.
NOW THEREFORE, the Company awards the restricted shares of Common Stock
(Restricted Stock) to the Grantee, subject to the following terms and conditions of this Award:
Grant of Restricted Stock. Subject to the terms and conditions contained herein, including, but not limited to, the restrictions in Sections 3 and 4 of this Award, the Company hereby grants to the Grantee an award of 1,600 shares of
Restricted Stock under the Plan. Capitalized terms used, but not otherwise defined, herein shall have the meanings set forth in the Plan.
2. Issuance of Restricted Stock. As of the Grant Date, as determined by the Committee, the shares of Restricted Stock will be (i) registered in a book entry account
(Account) in the name of the Grantee or (ii) evidenced by the issuance of stock certificates, which certificates will be registered in the name of the Grantee and will bear an appropriate legend referring to the terms,
conditions, and restrictions applicable to the Restricted Stock, substantially in the following form:
The transferability of
this certificate and the shares of Common Stock represented hereby are subject to the terms, conditions and restrictions (including forfeiture) contained in the Director Restricted Stock Award Agreement, effective as of May 10, 2012, between
Dril-Quip, Inc. and the registered owner hereof. Copies of such Award Agreement are on file in the offices of Dril-Quip, Inc., 6401 N. Eldridge Parkway, Houston, Texas 77041.
Any certificates issued that evidence the shares of Restricted Stock shall be held in custody by the Company or, if specified by the Committee, by a third party custodian or trustee, until the
restrictions on such shares shall have lapsed, and, as a condition of this Award, the Grantee shall deliver a stock power, duly endorsed in blank, relating to the shares of Restricted Stock. The Restricted Stock will constitute issued and
outstanding shares of Common Stock for all corporate purposes.
3. Transfer Restrictions. Except as expressly provided herein, the shares of
Restricted Stock are non-transferable and may not otherwise be assigned, pledged, hypothecated or otherwise disposed of and shall not be subject to execution, attachment or similar process. Upon any attempt to effect any such disposition, or upon
the levy of any such process, the award provided for herein shall immediately become null and void, and the shares of Restricted Stock shall be immediately forfeited to the Company.
(a) Except as provided in Section 4(b) below, the restrictions on the shares of Restricted Stock shall lapse, and the shares shall vest, in the following percentages on the following vesting dates:
||33 1/3% on the first anniversary of the Grant Date; |
||33 1/3% on the second anniversary of the Grant Date; and |
||33 1/3% on the third anniversary of the Grant Date; |
provided, however, that the Grantee has continuously served as a member of the Board from the Grant Date through each of the above vesting dates. Any fractional shares shall be rounded-up to the
next whole share (not to exceed the total number of shares of Restricted Stock granted under this Award). If the Grantee does not continuously serve as a member of the Board until the vesting dates specified above, then all shares of then
outstanding Restricted Stock shall be forfeited immediately after the Grantee ceases to be a member of the Board.
Notwithstanding the limitations set forth in Section 4(a) above, the Restricted Stock shall become fully vested and exercisable and the restrictions shall lapse as of the date of the occurrence of a Change of Control; provided, however,
that the Grantee has continuously served as a member of the Board at all time since the Grant Date. For the purposes of this Award, Change of Control shall mean (i) there shall have occurred an event required to be
reported with respect to the Company in response to Item 6(e) of Schedule 14A of Regulation 14A (or in response to any similar item or any similar schedule or form) promulgated under the Exchange Act, whether or not the Company is then subject
to such reporting requirement; (ii) any person (as such term is used in Sections 13(d) and 14(d) of the Exchange Act) shall have become the beneficial owner (as defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act), directly or
indirectly, of securities of the Company representing 30% or more of the combined voting power of the Companys then outstanding voting securities; (iii) the Company is a party to a merger, consolidation, sale of assets or other
reorganization, or a proxy contest, as a consequence of which members of the Board in office immediately prior to such transaction or event constitute less than a majority of the Board thereafter; or (iv) during any period of two consecutive
years, individuals who at the beginning of such period constituted the Board (including, for this purpose, any new director whose election or nomination for election by the Companys stockholders was approved by a vote of at least two-thirds of
the directors then still in office who were directors at the beginning of such period) cease for any reason to constitute at least a majority of the Board.
5. Distribution Following Termination of Restrictions. As soon as administratively
feasible following the lapse of restrictions on the Restricted Stock in Section 4 of this Award, but no later than 30 days after such vesting occurs, the Company will cause to be removed from the Account the restrictions or, if requested in
writing to the Committee, cause to be issued and delivered to the Grantee (in certificate or electronic form) shares of Common Stock equal to the number of shares of Restricted Stock that have vested (and provided that the Restricted Stock has not
been forfeited prior to the date such restrictions lapsed).
6. Voting and Dividend Rights. During the period in which
the restrictions provided herein are applicable to the Restricted Stock, the Grantee shall have the right to vote the shares of Restricted Stock and to receive any cash dividends paid with respect thereto unless and until forfeiture thereof. Any
dividend or distribution payable with respect to shares of Restricted Stock that shall be paid or distributed in shares of Common Stock shall be subject to the same restrictions provided for herein, and the shares so paid or distributed shall be
deemed Restricted Stock subject to all terms and conditions herein. Any dividend or distribution (other than cash or Common Stock) payable or distributable on shares of Restricted Stock, unless otherwise determined by the Committee, shall be subject
to the terms and conditions of this Award to the same extent and in the same manner as the Restricted Stock is subject; provided that the Committee may make such modifications and additions to the terms and conditions (including restrictions on
transfer and the conditions to the timing and degree of lapse of such restrictions) that shall become applicable to such dividend or distribution as the Committee may provide in its absolute discretion.
7. Adjustments. As provided in Section 16 of the Plan, certain adjustments may be made to the Restricted Stock upon the
occurrence of events or circumstances described in Section 16 of the Plan. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, and except as otherwise provided in the Plan, in the event of any merger, consolidation, reorganization,
recapitalization, reclassification or other capital or corporate structure change of the Company, the securities or other consideration receivable for or in conversion of or exchange for shares of Restricted Stock shall be subject to the terms and
conditions of this Award to the same extent and in the same manner as the Restricted Stock is subject; provided that the Committee may make such modifications and additions to the terms and conditions (including restrictions on transfer and the
conditions to the timing and degree of lapse of such restrictions) that shall become applicable to the securities or other consideration so receivable as the Committee may provide in its absolute discretion.
8. Incorporation of Plan Provisions. This Award and the award of Restricted Stock hereunder are made pursuant to the Plan and are
subject to all of the terms and provisions of the Plan as if the same were fully set forth herein. In the event that any provision of this Award conflicts with the Plan, the provisions of the Plan shall control. The Grantee acknowledges receipt of a
copy of the Plan and agrees that all decisions under and interpretations of the Plan by the Committee shall be final, binding and conclusive upon the Grantee.
9. No Rights to Continued Service. Nothing contained in this Award shall confer upon
the Grantee any right to continued service as a member of the Board, or limit in any way the right of the Board to terminate or modify the terms of the Grantees service at any time.
10. Notice. Unless the Company notifies the Grantee in writing of a different procedure, any notice or other communication to the
Company with respect to this Award shall be in writing and shall be delivered personally or sent by first class mail, postage prepaid to the following address:
