Attachment B

 

NON-DISCLOSURE AND NON-COMPETITION AGREEMENT

 

IN CONSIDERATION of my employment and continued employment by Sirna Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”), I hereby agree as follows:

 

1. During the continuance of my employment with the Company and subsequent thereto, I will not, directly or indirectly, disclose or reveal to any person, firm, or corporation, or use for my benefit or for the benefit of any person, firm, or corporation, any knowledge or information which I may acquire concerning the Company’s business or products, including, without limitation, technology, manufacturing processes, formulas, formulations, processes, discoveries, patents, patent applications, research, product development, marketing plans, research and development plans, systems, names, types, quantities or sources of supply of materials used or sold by the Company, pricing information, the identities of former or existing customers of the Company and other trade or business secrets or other confidential information of the Company, which shall also include any confidential information of any other party revealed to me during my employment by the Company. Upon termination of my employment with the Company, I will forthwith return to the Company all documents, lists, books, records, computer tapes, and disks relating to the foregoing and the business or customers of the Company and all other property belonging to it. I further agree that the Company’s information processing equipment, software and services are not to be used for personal gain or purposes.

 

2. I further agree that during the continuance of my employment with the Company and for a period of one (1) year after the termination of my employment with the Company for any reason (with or without cause) (the “Non-Competition Period”): (i) I will not, anywhere in the United States, engage, without the express prior written consent of the Company, in any business or activity in direct competition with Company in the then current Field of Interest (as defined below), whether as an employee, consultant, partner, principal, agent, representative, equity holder or in any other individual, corporate or representative capacity (without limitation by specific enumeration of the foregoing), or render any services or provide any advice to any person, company or other entity (each, a “Person”) in direct competition with the Company in the then current Field of Interest (a “Competing Business”); (ii) I will not, anywhere in Colorado, engage, without the express prior written consent of the Company, in any business or activity in direct competition with the Company in the then current Field of Interest, whether as an employee, consultant, partner, principal, agent, representative, equity holder or in any other individual, corporate or representative capacity (without limitation by specific enumeration of the foregoing), or render any services or provide any advice to any Competing Business; and (iii) I will not, in any of the counties in the State of Colorado, engage, without the express prior written consent of the

Company, in any business or activity in direct competition with the Company in the then current Field of Interest, whether as an employee, consultant, partner, principal, agent, representative, equity holder or in any other individual, corporate or representative capacity (without limitation by specific enumeration of the foregoing), or render any services or provide any advice to any Competing Business.

 

3. I acknowledge that the Company proposes that its principal business activities shall relate to the research, development, manufacture, license, sale and distribution of therapeutic products using small interfering nucleic acid (siNA), including without limitation, small interfering RNA (siRNA), technology (hereinafter, “siNA Technology”). During the Non-Competition Period, the Company may, in addition to or in substitution for siNA Technology, have additional platform technologies as its principal business activity or activities, including without limitation programs in therapeutic areas where the Company has advanced a product into pre-clinical toxicology or later stages of development (the “Field of Interest”). For example, the current Field of Interest would include without limitation the viruses HBV and HCV and the therapeutic gene target VEGF-Receptor R-1, which are within the scope of the Company’s current principal business activities, but other therapeutic areas, such as anti-viral therapeutic products and specific cancer therapeutics, would exceed the scope of activities covered by the current Field of Interest.

 

4. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, upon the termination of my employment with the Company for any reason (with our without cause), it is understood and agreed that I may thereafter engage, without the consent of the Company, in any business or activity, whether as an employee, consultant, partner, principal, agent, representative, equity holder or in any other individual, corporate or representative capacity (without limitation by specific enumeration of the foregoing) for any Person that is engaged in the then current Field of Interest at the time of termination of my employment with the Company, so long as (i) the principal business activity of such Person is not in such Field of Interest and (ii) I do not personally engage or provide counsel, advice or direction in any activities that are within such Field of Interest for such Person.

 

5. Notwithstanding the foregoing, I may own, directly or indirectly, up to one percent (1%) of any class of “publicly traded securities” of any Person which owns or operates a business that is a Competing Business. For the purposes of this Section 5, “publicly traded securities” shall mean securities that are traded on a national securities exchange or listed on the Nasdaq National Market.

 

6. I further agree that, during the Non-Competition Period, I will not for any reason intentionally or knowingly or willfully (i) solicit or divert any business, clients, customers, or partners made known by me during his employment with the Company away from the Company, (ii) induce customers, clients, partners, suppliers, agents or other Persons under contract or otherwise associated or doing business with the Company who are made known by me during his employment

with the Company to reduce or alter any such association or business with the Company, and/or (iii) solicit any Person in the employment of the Company to (A) terminate such employment, and/or (B) accept employment, or enter into any consulting arrangement, with any Person other than the Company.

 

7. To my knowledge, this Agreement is a legal, valid and binding obligation, enforceable against me in accordance with its terms to the fullest extent permitted under applicable federal, state or local law.

 

8. For the purposes of this Agreement, the term “Company” shall include any related or affiliated companies of Sirna Therapeutics, to the extent such related or affiliated companies engage in activities related to the Field of Interest.

 

9. In the event I breach, or threaten, or attempt to breach, any of the covenants set forth in this Agreement, I, recognizing that immediate and irreparable injury will be caused the Company, agree that in addition to any other rights and remedies of the Company, each said covenant may be enforced by an action to obtain an injunction or restraining order, which may be granted immediately and without prior notice upon commencement of such action.

 

10. To the extent any provision of this Agreement shall be determined to be unlawful or otherwise unenforceable, in whole or in part, such determination shall not affect the validity of the remainder of this Agreement, and this Agreement shall be reformed to the extent necessary to carry out its provisions to the greatest extent possible. In the absence of such reformation, such part of such provision shall be considered deleted from this Agreement and the remainder of such provision and of this Agreement shall be unaffected and shall continue in full force and effect. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, should the duration or geographical extent of, or business activities covered by any provision of this Agreement be in excess of that which is valid and enforceable under applicable law, then such provision shall be construed to cover only that duration, extent or activities which may validly and enforceably be covered. To the extent any provision of this Agreement shall be declared invalid or unenforceable for any reason by any governmental entity in any jurisdiction, this Agreement (or provision thereof) shall remain valid and enforceable in each other jurisdiction where it applies. I acknowledge the uncertainty of the law in this respect and expressly stipulate that this Agreement shall be given the construction which renders its provisions valid and enforceable to the maximum extent (not exceeding its express terms) possible under applicable law.

 

11. This Agreement will be governed by the law of Colorado.
