1.
Employment.  The Company hereby employs Employee and Employee hereby accepts employment with the Company to assist in the development and to promote the operation of the business carried on by the Company, subject to the following conditions:
 
 
(a)
Position.  Employee will serve as Chief Financial Officer, reporting to the Chief Executive Officer and will perform such duties and will exercise such responsibilities, commensurate with such position, on behalf of the Company as from time to time will be assigned to him.  During his service hereunder, Employee will at all times provide his full working time and best efforts to the performance of his obligations and duties hereunder; provided, however, that nothing herein contained will be deemed to prevent or limit the right of Employee to (i) invest his funds in the capital stock or other securities of any corporation except a competitor or (ii) serve on the boards of directors or advisory committees of charitable organizations, trade organizations or other companies which are not competitors and which are previously approved in writing by the Company or (iii) engage in other personal business matters that do not interfere with the performance of Employee’s duties as described above.
 
 
(b)
Base Compensation.  During the term of his employment hereunder, Employee will be paid an annual base salary at the rate of $235,000 (“Base Compensation”), payable in equal bi-weekly installments in arrears; provided however, that beginning with the standard review cycle planned for 2012, the Board will review and, in its discretion, may increase Employee’s Base Compensation based on the Company’s performance and Employee’s contributions. Employee’s Base Compensation shall not be reduced, without prior written agreement, except in accordance with a Board approved reduction that is uniformly applied to all Employees who are employed as Directors and above within the Company.
 
 
(c)
Bonus Plan; Annual Bonus.  In addition, Employee will be eligible to participate in AuthenTec’s annual bonus plans which are generally available to other senior level Employees of AuthenTec as may be approved from time to time.
 
 
(d)
Equity Grants.  The Employee shall be eligible to participate in and receive grants commensurate with his senior level position of stock options and other equity-based awards under any compensation plan, programs or agreements of the Company made available generally to its senior executives; provided that the amount, timing, and other terms of any future grant shall be determined by the Board (or the Compensation Committee thereof) in its sole discretion.
 
 
(e)
Other Benefits.
 
 
(i)
Insurance and Other Benefits.  Employee shall be entitled to participate in all of the benefits afforded full-time AuthenTec employees, subject to the various eligibility requirements of the specific benefit plans and subject, in some cases, to Employee contributions to such plans.  These benefits shall include group health, dental and vision plans, a 401(k) deferred compensation plan, life insurance and short term disability coverage, as well as optional supplemental life insurance and long term disability coverages.
 
 
 

 
 
 
(ii)
Vacation.  Employee shall be entitled to an annual vacation of three (3) weeks per year for the first year of employment and increasing to four (4) weeks per year thereafter.  Unused vacation shall be accrued pursuant to the Company’s policy.
 
 
(iii)
Transition/Relocation Assistance.  The Company shall reimburse Employee for transition-related expenses up to a maximum of $20,000 for expenses incurred in 2011 and $20,000 for expenses incurred in 2012.  These expenses may include temporary living costs, rental car, and airfare to/from Philadelphia.
 
Additionally, it is anticipated that the Employee will relocate to the Melbourne, Florida area after two (2) years.  At that time the Company will provide a relocation package in an amount not to exceed $125,000, subject to approval by the Board of Directors.  The specifics of the relocation package will be mutually determined based on Employee’s personal needs and Company guidelines, and in compliance with Internal Revenue Code Section 409A.   Should the Employee voluntarily decide to leave the Company within one year of receiving relocation assistance, 100% of all relocation monies paid will be due as reimbursement to AuthenTec on the Employee’s last day of work.

2.
Term of Employment; Termination.

(b)

(i)

(D)
Constructive Termination Of Employee.  Employee may terminate his employment upon written notice to the Company of any one of the following events that occurs, if not cured and corrected by the Company or its successor within thirty (30) business days after written notice thereof by the Employee to the Company or its successor (“Good Reason”):  (i) any adverse change in the Employee’s titles or position that constitutes a material diminution or material adverse change in authority as compared to the authority of the Employee’s title or position as of the Effective Date; (ii) any material reduction in the Employee’s annual Base Compensation as in effect on the Effective Date (other than as set forth in the proviso to item (v)); (iii) a substantial diminution or material adverse change in the Employee’s duties and responsibilities (other than a change due to the Employee’s total and permanent disability or as an accommodation under the Americans With Disabilities Act); (iv) any requirement that the Employee relocate, by more than 50 miles, the principal location from which he performs services for the Company as compared to such location as of the Effective Date; (v) any other material breach of this Agreement by the Company; (vi) failure of Company to obtain the agreement from any successor to Company to assume and agree to perform this Agreement;  provided, however, that no diminution of title, position, duties or responsibilities shall be deemed to occur solely because the Company becomes a subsidiary of another corporation or entity or because there has been a change in the reporting hierarchy incident thereto involving the Employee.
 
 
(E)
Death or Disability.  If the Company determines in good faith that Employee has become Disabled (as defined below), it may give to Employee written notice of its intention to terminate Employee’s employment.  In such event, Employee’s employment with the Company shall terminate effective on the 30th day after receipt of such written notice by Employee, provided that, within the 30 days after such receipt, Employee shall not have returned to full-time performance of Employee’s duties.  For purposes of this Agreement, Employee shall be Disabled if either of the following conditions is met, as determined by the Board in good faith: (i) Employee is unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment that can be expected to result in death or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months; or (ii) Employee is, by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment that can be expected to result in death or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months, receiving income replacement benefits for a period of not less than three months under an accident and health plan covering employees of the Company.

Compliance with Section 409A.

This Agreement shall be interpreted and administered in a manner so that any amount or benefit payable hereunder shall be paid or provided in a manner that is either exempt from or compliant with the requirements of Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”) and applicable Internal Revenue Service guidance and Treasury Regulations issued thereunder (any applicable transition relief under Section 409A of the Code).  Nevertheless, the tax treatment of the benefits provided under the Agreement is not warranted or guaranteed.  Neither the Company nor its directors, officers, employees or advisers shall be held liable for any taxes, interest, penalties or other monetary amounts owed by Employee as a result of the application of Section 409A of the Code.

(iv)
“Termination of employment,” or words of similar import, as used in this Agreement means, for purposes of any payments under this Agreement that are payments of deferred compensation subject to Section 409A, the Employee’s “separation from service” as defined in Section 409A.
 
 
(v)
If a payment obligation under this Agreement or other compensation arrangement arises on account of Employee’s separation from service while Employee is a “specified employee” (as defined under Section 409A and determined in good faith by the Compensation Committee), any payment of “deferred compensation” (as defined under Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-1(b)(1), after giving effect to the exemptions in Treasury Regulation Sections 1.409A-1(b)(3) through (b)(12)) that is scheduled to be paid within six (6) months after such separation from service shall accrue without interest and shall be paid within 15 days after the end of the six-month period beginning on the date of such separation from service or, if earlier, within 15 days after the appointment of the personal representative or executor of Employee’s estate following his death.
 
 
(vi)
Whenever in this Agreement a payment or benefit is conditioned on Employee’s execution or non-revocation of a release of claims, such release must be executed and all revocation periods shall have expired within 60 days after the date of termination; failing which such payment or benefit shall be forfeited.  If such payment or benefit constitutes non-exempt deferred compensation, then, subject to subsection (v) above, such payment or benefit that would have otherwise been payable during such 60-day period shall be accumulated and paid on the 60th day after the Date of Termination provided such release shall have been executed and such revocation periods shall have expired.  If such payment or benefit is exempt from Section 409A of the Code, the Company may elect to make or commence payment at any time during such 60-day period.
