EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT WITH MR. BRAUNS DATED
†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT
†††† THIS EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT (the "Agreement") is entered into as of February
27,1998, by and between Martin Brauns ("Employee") and Interwoven, Inc. (the
"Company"). The Company and Employee may be jointly referred to as the
†††† 1.†† Employment and Duties.† The Company agrees to employ and Employee
agrees to serve as President and Chief Executive Officer, reporting to Company's
Board of Directors. Employee shall have the authority and responsibilities
customarily accorded an executive officer with that position, including full
power, authority, and Board of Director support to make any personnel
reassignments and terminations as the CEO deems necessary. All other employees
of the Company shall report directly or through their superiors to Employee.
Employee shall, as a condition of his employment, at all times during his
employment be nominated and elected a member of the Board of Directors of the
Company. Employee agrees to devote substantially all of his working time and
efforts to the performance of his duties under this Agreement, provided that the
devotion of time to personal investments or other business matters will not be
deemed a breach of this Agreement if it does not substantially interfere with
the performance of Employee's duties hereunder.
†††† 2.†† Compensation.
††††††††† (a)† Base Salary; Withholding.† The Company shall pay Employee a base
salary of $250,000.00 per year, subject to increase (but not decrease
thereafter) from time to time in the good faith discretion of the Board of
Directors of the Company, payable in arrears in equal monthly installments. The
parties shall comply with all applicable withholding requirements in connection
with all compensation payable to Employee hereunder.
††††††††† (b)† Incentive Bonus.† In addition to the base salary set forth above,
with respect to each fiscal year (which currently is the calendar year) the
Company shall pay Employee, by no later than 30 days after close of each half
year, an incentive bonus computed semiannually and subject to "catch-up rights"
to compensate for underpayment for prior periods.
††††††††††† †††(i)† For fiscal year 1998, Employee's incentive bonus shall be
computed as 10% of base salary if the Company's fiscal year 1998 gross revenues
total $3,750,000, plus an additional 10% of any and all gross revenues in excess
of $3,750,000 up to $4,500,000, plus an additional 5% of any and all gross
revenues in excess of $4,500,000 and up to $5,000,000. For example, if the
Company's gross revenues total $4,700,000 in 1998, Employee's incentive bonus
would equal $25,000 + (10% x $750,000) + (5% x $200,000) = $110,000.
†††††††††††††† (ii) For fiscal years after 1998, Employee's incentive bonus
shall be based on revenue benchmarks to be established by agreement of Employee
and the Board, but in a manner calculated to provide equivalent incentive
compensation for such future years.
Under no circumstances shall Employee be required to repay any portion of any
previously paid bonus. In the event Employee does not remain employed at fiscal
year end for any reason other
than his voluntary termination without Good Reason or a termination for Cause
under paragraph 7(i), (ii) or (iii), he shall be entitled to be paid immediately
upon termination a proportionate share of the incentive bonus computed based on
the number of calendar days of that fiscal year prior to termination of
employment divided by 365, and Company performance meeting that fiscal year's
plan (e.g., revenues of $4.0 million are at plan for 1998).
††††††††† (c)† Retirement Benefits. Employee shall be entitled to participate in
the Company's 401K or equivalent program.
††††††††† (d)† Other Benefits.† Employee shall participate in and have the
benefits of all present and future vacation, holiday, paid leave, unpaid leave,
life, accident, disability, dental, vision and health insurance plans, pension,
profit-sharing and savings plans and all other plans and benefits which the
Company now or in the future from time to time makes available to any of its
management executives.† Company shall make every reasonable effort to obtain and
maintain a customary directors and officers insurance policy with reasonable
policy limits in which Employee is named as an insured.
†††† 3.†† Stock.
††††††††† (a)† Purchase Rights.† Immediately upon the effectiveness of this
Agreement, Employee shall be entitled to and shall purchase at a price of $0.12
per share 2,000,000 shares of common stock (hereafter referred to as "Employee's
Stock"). To the extent that Company receives any tax deduction, benefit or
reduction in taxes as a result of any valuation of Employee's Stock different
from the purchase price, the Company shall pay the amount of such reduction to
Employee grossed-up for Employees' tax consequence to the extent required to
offset any increase in taxes Employee is called upon to pay as a result of any
such different valuation.
††††††††† (b)† Loan for Purchase Price.† In order to facilitate the purchase of
Employee's Stock, the Company shall loan Employee the full amount of the
purchase price of Employee's Stock (the "Loan"). Such Loan shall be non-recourse
in the amount of 75% of outstanding principal, and recourse as to 25% of
principal and all interest. The Loan shall bear interest at 6% or such lower
rate as is the minimum imputed by the Internal Revenue Service at the time of
this Agreement, payable annually by Employee. The Loan shall be due and payable
upon the earlier of (i) an acquisition of the Company that includes acquisition
of Employee's Stock by the acquiror, (ii) an initial public offering of the
Company's stock, in which event the Loan shall become due in monthly
installments in proportion to the periodic monthly expiration of the Company's
repurchase rights, (iii) Employee's termination of employment, in which event,
to the extent the Loan is not retired through the Company's repurchase of
Employee's Stock, the Loan shall be repayable in three equal annual installments
commencing 90 days after termination, or (iv) five years. Employee shall pledge
all of Employee's stock as security for the Loan (subject to release from pledge
of such amount of stock if any as will maintain on pledge stock with a publicly
traded value of two times the outstanding principal of the Loan) and, to the
extent the Loan is non-recourse, the Company's sole recourse for repayment of
the Loan shall be such pledged stock. The Loan may be repaid at any time by
Employee without prepayment penalty.
††††††††† (c)† Repurchase Rights.† Employee's Stock shall be subject to
repurchase at the price of $0.12 per share as follows, and as shall be further
documented between the parties:
†††††††††††††† (i)† Except as provided in paragraphs 3(c)(ii), 3(d), and 9, if
Employee's employment is terminated at any time, the Company shall be entitled
to repurchase no more than the total number of shares of Employee's Stock
multiplied times (48 - x) and divided by 48, where x is the number of months
February 27, 1998through the final date of termination of
Employee's employment and consultancy with the Company, if the Company so
requests in writing at the time of such termination or at any time within the
forty-five day period following termination.
†††††††††††††† (ii) If, prior to
February 27, 1999, Employee is terminated by
the Company for Cause or voluntarily terminates his employment without Good
Reason, all of Employee's Stock shall be subject to repurchase if the Company so
requests in writing at the time of termination or at any time within the forty-
five day period following termination.
Any proceeds of the Company's repurchase of Employee's Stock shall be applied
first to reduce the amount, if any, owed by Employee to the Company on the Loan.
††††††††† (d)† Change in Control.
††††††††† (i)†† The Company's rights to elect to repurchase Employee's Stock
shall fully and immediately expire and become ineffective (A) in the event of
any Change in Control as defined in paragraph 3(d)(ii)(B) below, provided that
Employee, if so requested by the person(s) having control thereafter in his or
their discretion, continues employment with the Company for a period of up to
six months in such position as the Company may reasonably require following such
Change in Control, or (B) in the event that Employee is terminated by the
Company without Cause within 3 months prior to any Change in Control as defined
in paragraph 3(d)(ii) or during such longer time not to exceed six months as the
Company is actively negotiating or pursuing such Change in Control, or (C) in
the event that Employee is terminated by the Company without Cause or
voluntarily terminates with Good Reason within twelve months after any Change in
Control as defined in paragraph 3(d)(ii)(A).
††††††††† (ii)† A "Change in Control" will be deemed to have occurred if: any
"Person" (as such term is used in Sections 13(d) and 14(d) of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act")), other than persons
controlling (as defined in Rule 405 under the Securities Act of 1933 ("Rule
405")) the Company as of the closing of Series C funding of the Company (except
that no person shall be deemed to control the Company under Rule 405 merely due
to his or her position as an officer or director of the Company), (A) becomes
the "beneficial owner" (as defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act),
directly or indirectly, of a sufficient number of securities of the Company such
that such Person can and does exercise control (as defined in Rule 405) over the
management of the Company, or (B) succeeds to the control of a substantial
majority of the business or assets of the Company through merger, transfer of
assets, reorganization, acquisition or other event.
†††††††††(e)† Restrictions.† Employee shall not engage in any transfer, sale,
hypothecation, or other disposition ("Transfer") of Employee's Stock as to which
the Company retains a right to repurchase under paragraph (c) above. †In
addition, for so long as Employee's employment continues with the Company,
Employee shall not engage in any Transfer of Employee's Stock prior to February
27, 1999, provided that if Employee's employment is terminated prior to that
time, Employee shall be entitled to Transfer any stock not subject to repurchase
by the Company, and provided further that for so long as the Company's Stock
remains privately held and not publicly traded, the Company shall be provided
the right of first refusal to purchase any of Employee's Stock that Employee
seeks to Transfer. In addition, Employee's Stock shall be subject to reasonable
market stand-off and lock-up provisions not inconsistent with this Agreement.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, this subsection (e) shall not apply to Employee's
Transfer of Employee's Stock to any trust, provided that such Transfer is made
for bona fide estate planning purposes.
††††††††† (f)† Future Investments.† For so long as the Company remains privately
held and not publicly traded Employee shall be offered the opportunity to
participate, at his election, at 10% of the total invested by all investors in
any future rounds of private financing of the Company at any new valuations that
may pertain to such financing (subject to reduction of that 10% for subsequent
rounds if Employee is diluted by his election not to participate in full in
prior rounds). In connection with that participation, Employee shall be offered
the opportunity to enter into the stock purchase agreement and registration and
information rights agreements provided to other investors in that round of
