The awards were granted in accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5635(c)(4) as a material inducement to Ms. Daru’s and Mr. Lopez Reus’ employment with NETGEAR.

The inducement awards consist of (1) an award of time-based restricted stock units (“RSUs”) relating to 101,250 shares of NETGEAR’s common stock to Ms. Daru, (2) an award of time-based RSUs relating to 58,479 shares of NETGEAR’s common stock to Mr. Lopez Reus (each, an “RSU Award”), and (3) an award of performance-based RSUs with a target amount of 33,750 shares of NETGEAR’s common stock to Ms. Daru (the “PSU Award”).

One-third (1/3rd) of the total number of shares subject to each RSU Award will vest on the one-year anniversary of May 31, 2024, and one-twelfth (1/12th) of the total number of shares subject to each RSU Award will vest in equal quarterly installments thereafter, in each case subject to Ms. Daru and Mr. Lopez Reus providing continued service with NETGEAR through such vesting date for their respective RSU Awards.

The number of shares subject to the PSU Award that become eligible to vest (“Earned PSUs”) will be determined based on how NETGEAR’s total shareholder return (“TSR”) from April 27, 2024 through December 31, 2026 compares to the TSRs of the companies in the Nasdaq Telecommunications Index (IXTC).
