On May 2, 2018, the board of directors (the “Board”) of Centennial Resource Development, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), approved the Centennial Resource Development, Inc. Severance Plan (the “Severance Plan”), under which all regular, U.S. full-time employees, including named executive officers, of the Company and its affiliates are eligible for benefits in connection with a qualifying termination of employment.

Under the Severance Plan, if, within 24 months following a Change in Control (as defined in the Severance Plan) (a “Change in Control”), we terminate the employment of an eligible employee who is a c-suite executive or the Vice President and General Counsel, which includes all of our named executive officers, without Cause or if the employee resigns for Good Reason (as such capitalized terms are defined in the Severance Plan), then such employee will be entitled to receive:

a single payment equal to the sum of (a) two times the employee’s annual base salary, (b) two times the average of the actual annual performance bonuses paid to the employee in the three full fiscal years prior to the year of termination (or, if fewer, the number of full fiscal years the employee has performed services for the Company and been eligible for an annual bonus), excluding any portion of an annual bonus that the Company reasonably determines is attributable to payment of a portion of the annual bonus in property and is over and above the amount of the annual bonus that the employee would have been paid if the employee’s entire annual bonus had been paid in cash, and (c) 125% of aggregate COBRA premiums, based on the COBRA premium rates in effect for the month in which the employee’s termination date occurs, that the employee would need to pay to continue coverage for the employee and the employee’s covered beneficiaries under the Company’s group health plans during the 24 months following the termination date,

outplacement benefits for one year following the termination date,

vesting of all unvested equity or equity-based awards under any of the Company’s equity compensation plans that vest solely based upon the passage of time, and

vesting of all unvested equity or equity-based awards under any of the Company’s equity compensation plans that vest based on the attainment of performance vesting conditions at the level that would apply based on actual performance calculated as if the termination date were the final day of the applicable performance period.

The right to receive severance payments and benefits is subject to an employee’s execution and non-revocation of a release of claims. The Board has reserved the right to modify or terminate the Severance Plan at any time, except that no modification or termination may affect the rights of an employee to claim benefits under the Severance Plan for a termination of employment occurring prior to the date of the modification or termination and the Severance Plan may not be amended or modified during the period of time following a Change in Control during which a participant may receive benefits in a way that adversely affects a participant’s rights.

The foregoing description of the Severance Plan does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Severance Plan, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.
