(e)           On February 16, 2016, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Calgon Carbon Corporation (“Calgon Carbon” or the “Company”) amended the Form of Restricted Performance Stock Unit Agreement (the “Performance Unit Agreement”) to be used for future grants of performance awards made under the Company’s 2008 Equity Incentive Plan, as amended from time to time (the “Plan”). The full text of the Performance Unit Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated by reference.

A Performance Share Award (an “Award”) provides for the issuance of shares of Company common stock (the “Performance Shares”) at a future date in the event the Company achieves pre-established goals established by the Compensation Committee at the time of granting any Award.  Each Performance Share Award is comprised of two performance goals: (i) relating total shareholder return (“TSR”), defined as the share price appreciation of the Company’s common stock plus any dividends accrued during the performance period, as compared to the collective total shareholder return of a peer group of companies; and (ii) relating to corporate return on capital (“ROC”), defined as operating profit after tax divided by the average capital employed.

Performance Shares earned under an Award are to be issued on or before March 15th of the year following the end of the performance period and upon the determination by the Compensation Committee that the performance goals have been achieved and the level of such achievement. Unless otherwise determined by the Compensation Committee, all outstanding Awards are immediately forfeited if an Award recipient’s employment is terminated for any reason, other than death, retirement or disability, in which case outstanding Awards may be paid on a prorated basis.

The Performance Unit Agreement was amended to include dividend equivalent rights pertaining to future Awards.  The dividend equivalents will accrue for dividends declared following the grant date of the Award.  Further, accrued dividend equivalents will be payable in cash and only in the event that Performance Shares are actually issued pursuant to the Award following the achievement of the previously established performance goals.
