Euronet Long-Term Incentive Stock Option Plan and Form of Stock Option Agreement
EURONET LONG-TERM INCENTIVE
STOCK OPTION PLAN
1. Purpose of Plan. The purpose of the Euronet Long-Term
Incentive Plan (the "Plan") is to (i) increase the ownership of common
stock of Euronet Services Inc. (the "Company") by those key employees or
independent consultants who are primarily responsible for the continued
growth, development and financial success of the Company and its
subsidiaries, and (ii) attract and retain such employees and consultants
and reward them for the continued profitable performance of the Company and
The Plan was adopted by the Board of Directors of the Company (the
Board") on December 17, 1996. Certain stock option grants were made to employees
and consultants of the Company or its subsidiaries in agreements made prior to
the date of adoption of this Plan. This Plan is intended to incorporate and
supersede all such grants which shall, from the date the grantees under such
grants so acknowledge, be governed by this Plan.
2. Definitions. The following definitions are applicable herein:

version of this Plan was adopted by the Board.
"Award" -- individually or collectively, Options granted hereunder.
"Board" -- the Board of Directors of the Company.

through the Board. The term "Company" as used herein shall also include any
successor to the Company as provided in Section 9.6 of this Plan.
"Date of Grant" -- the date on which the grant of an Award is
authorized by the Company or such other date as may be specified by the Company
in such authorization.

transaction occurring prior to the date of the exercise of the Option, and (ii)
the net book value of the Company, divided by the number of the Company shares
outstanding at the time of the exercise of an Award by a Participant; provided
that the Fair Market Value shall always be at least equal to the par value of
the Stock. In the event that a public market is created for shares, then the
Fair Market Value of a share of common stock on any day shall be the closing
sale quotation on the market with respect to which such shares are traded as
reported for such day or, if no such quotation is reported for such day, the
average of the high bid and low asked price of common stock as reported for such
day. If no quotation is made for the applicable day, the Fair Market Value of a
share of common stock on such day shall be determined in the manner set forth in
the preceding sentence using quotations for the next preceding day for which
there were quotations, provided that such quotations shall have been made
within the ten (10) "trading" days preceding the applicable day.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if no such information is available or if
otherwise deemed necessary or appropriate by the Option Committee, the Fair
Market Value of a share of common stock on any day shall be determined in good
faith by the Option Committee taking into account all relevant material facts

determine whether the termination of a Participant's employment or consulting

constitutes cause for dismissal. Such determinations of the Company shall be
final, binding and conclusive.

administered in accordance with the terms of this Plan document by the Board or
a committee thereof, provided that all questions of interpretation regarding the
terms and conditions pursuant to which Awards are granted, exercised or
forfeited under the provisions hereof, shall be subject to the determination of
the Board or the Option Committee, as the case may be. Any such determination
shall be final and binding upon all parties affected thereby.
4.2 Indemnification. Each member of the Board or the Option
Committee (and each person to whom any of them has delegated any authority or
power under this Plan) shall be indemnified and held harmless by the Company
against and from (i) any loss, cost, liability, or expense that may be imposed

a member of the Board or the Option Committee be liable for any determination
made or other action taken or any omission to act in reliance upon any such
report or information or for any action taken, including the furnishing of
information, or failure to act, if in good faith.
5. Stock Options.
5.1 Grant of Stock Options. The Company may, from time to
time, grant Stock Options for shares of common stock in the Company to one or
more Eligible Persons, provided that: (i) all grants must be approved in advance
by the Board; (ii) the aggregate number of shares of Stock subject to Stock
Options under this Plan, subject to any adjustment pursuant to Section 5.11, may
not exceed Two Million Four Hundred Thirteen Thousand Five Hundred and
Eighty-Six (2,413,586) shares; (iii) in the event that a Stock Option lapses or
the rights of the Participant to whom it as granted terminate, any shares of
Stock subject to such Option shall again be available for the grant of an
Option to another Eligible Person under this Plan; and (iv) shares of Stock
delivered by the Company under this Plan may be either authorized and unissued
Stock, Stock held in the treasury of the Company or Stock purchased on the open
market (including private purchases), in accordance with any applicable
5.2 Payment Nature of Option. All Options granted shall be in
consideration of services performed for the Company or its Subsidiaries by the
Optionee. All Options granted shall constitute a special incentive payment to
the Optionee and shall not be taken into account in computing the amount of
salary or compensation of the Optionee for the purpose of determining any
benefits under any pension, retirement, profit-sharing, bonus, life insurance or
other benefit plan of the Company or under any agreement between the Company and
the Optionee, unless such plan or agreement specifically otherwise provides.
5.3 Eligibility. Key employees and consultants of the Company
and its Subsidiaries (including employees and consultants who are members of the
Board) who, in the opinion and sole discretion of the Company, are primarily
responsible for the continued growth and development and financial success of
the business of the Company or one or more of its Subsidiaries shall be eligible
to be granted Awards under the Plan. Subject to the provisions of this Plan, the
Company may from time to time select from such Eligible Persons those to whom
Awards shall be granted and determine the nature and amount of each Award. The
Company shall not be under any obligation to grant any employee or consultant of
the Company or its Subsidiaries an Award under this Plan.
5.4 Non-Uniform Determinations. The Company's determinations
under this Plan need not be uniform and may be made by it selectively among
Eligible Persons who receive, or are eligible to receive, Options (whether or
not such persons are similarly situated). Without limiting the generality of the
foregoing, the Company shall be entitled, among other things, to make
non-uniform and selective determinations which may, inter alia, reflect the
specific terms of individual employment or consulting agreements, and to enter
into non-uniform and selective Option Agreements, as to (a) the persons
qualified to receive Options and (b) the terms and conditions of Options.
5.5 Number of Shares of Stock Subject to Option. In
determining the size of Options to be granted, the Company shall take into
account a prospective Participant's job responsibilities, level, performance,
potential, cash compensation level, the Fair Market Value of the Stock at the
time of granting the Award, as well as such other considerations it deems
5.6 Stock Option Terms. Each Option granted under this Plan
shall be evidenced by a Stock Option Agreement between the Company and the
Participant under terms and conditions approved by the Company, provided,
however, that unless otherwise provided in the Stock Option Agreement, the
following terms and conditions shall apply:
(1) The Optionee's right to exercise the Options
granted shall vest over a period of five years, in five tranches, each equal
to one-fifth of the total number of shares of Stock which are the subject of an
Option grant. One tranche shall vest on each anniversary of the Date of Grant
for five years after the Date of Grant.
(2) The Options are exercisable with respect to
Vested Shares either in total or in part, with a partial exercise not affecting
the exercisability of the balance of the Option.
(3) Each Option shall cease to be exercisable as
to any share of Stock, at the earliest of (i) the Optionee's purchase of the
entire amount of Stock to which the Option relates or (ii) the lapse of the
Option in accordance with Section 5.8 below.
(4) Options are not transferable by the Optionee
except by will or the laws of descent and distribution and shall be
exercisable (i) during the Optionee's lifetime only by the Optionee or by
the Optionee's guardian or legal representative or (ii) after an
Optionee's death by the representative of the
estate of the Optionee as provided in Section 5.8. In the event a Stock Option
Agreement establishes an Option Period which does not begin immediately upon the
grant thereof, such agreement may initially provide, or the Company may at any
time thereafter unilaterally amend it to provide, for the immediate
exercisability of the Option granted therein upon the occurrence of events
determined by the Company, in its sole discretion, to justify such immediate
(5) The Option price per share of Stock shall be
100% of the Fair Market Value at the Date of Grant. The Option price shall be
payable in cash, in full, at the time of the exercise of the Option.
5.7 Dividend Equivalency. Any Option may, in the discretion of
the Company, provide for dividend equivalency rights under which the Participant
shall be entitled to additional payments, in the nature of compensation, equal
to the amount of dividends which would have been paid, during the period such
Option is held, on the number of shares of Stock equal to the number of shares
subject to such Option.
5.8 Lapse of Option. An Option will lapse upon the first
occurrence of one of the following circumstances: (i) 10 years from the Date of
Grant; (ii) on the 90th day following the Optionee's Date of Retirement; (iii)
on the date which is 60 days after an Optionee's Termination; or (iv) at the
expiration of the Option Period set forth in the Stock Option Agreement. If,
however, the Optionee dies within the Option Period and prior to the lapse of
the Option, the Option shall lapse unless it is exercised within the Option
Period or six months from the date of the Optionee's death, whichever is
earlier, by the Optionee's legal representative or representatives or by the
person or persons entitled to do so under the Optionee's will or, if the
Optionee shall fail to make a testamentary disposition of such Option or shall
die intestate, by the person or persons entitled to receive said Option under
the applicable laws of descent and distribution.
5.9 Change in Control.
(1) "Change In Control" shall be deemed to have
occurred upon the happening of any of the following events: (i) any Person or
group of Persons (other than any shareholder of the Company as of the
Adoption Date), becomes the owner, directly or indirectly, whether by
purchase, acquisition or otherwise, of 50% or more of the outstanding shares
of the Company; or (ii) the Company's shareholders approve an agreement
to merge, consolidate, liquidate, or sell all or substantially all of the
Company's assets. The Company shall give prompt notice to all Optionees in
the event it becomes aware that a Change In Control has occurred.
(2) Upon the event of a Change in Control: (i)
any Option outstanding prior to the date of the Change in Control shall
become, notwithstanding any other provision of this Plan or any Stock
Option Agreement, fully vested and immediately exercisable; and (ii) the
Company may, in its sole discretion and subject to the provisions of Section 7
below, amend any Stock Option Agreement in such manner as it deems
appropriate, but only as to those Options which have not been exercised.
(3) Whenever deemed appropriate by the Company,
any action referred to in Section 5.9(2)(ii) may be made conditional upon
the consummation of the applicable Change in Control transaction.
5.10 Restrictions. In furtherance of the foregoing, at the
time of any exercise of an Option, the Company may, if it shall determine it
necessary or desirable for any reason, require the Optionee, as a condition to
the exercise thereof, to deliver to the Company a written representation of the
Optionee's present intention to purchase the Stock for investment and not for
distribution. Each Option shall also be subject to the requirement that, if at
any time the Company determines, in its discretion, that either
(i) the registration or qualification of Stock subject to an Option under any
Securities Act, or (ii) the consent or approval of any governmental
regulatory body is necessary or desirable as a condition of, or in connection
with, the issue or purchase of Stock thereunder, the Option may not be
exercised in whole or in part unless such registration, qualification,
consent or approval shall have been effected or obtained free of any conditions
not acceptable to the Company.
5.11 Changes in Capital Structure. In the event of any change
in the outstanding shares of Stock by reason of any stock dividend or split,
recapitalization, combination or exchange of shares or other similar changes in
the Stock, then appropriate adjustments shall be made in the shares of Stock
theretofore awarded to the Optionees and in the aggregate number of shares of
Stock which may be awarded pursuant to the Plan. Such adjustments shall be made
by the Company and shall be binding and conclusive for all purposes. Additional
shares of Stock issued to a Optionee as the result of any such change shall bear
the same restrictions as the shares of Stock to which they relate.
6. Other Payments or Options. Nothing contained in this Plan
shall be deemed, in any way, to limit or restrict the Company from granting an
option to purchase Stock or payment to any person under any other plan,
arrangement or understanding, whether now existing or hereafter in effect.
7. Amendment and Termination. The Board may, from time to
time, suspend, discontinue, revise or amend this Plan in any respect
whatsoever provided however that no such amendment shall materially impair
any rights or materially increase any obligations under any outstanding
Award without the consent of the Participant (or, upon the Participant's death
or adjudication of mental incapacity, the person having the right to exercise
8. Miscellaneous Provisions.
8.1 Non-transferability. No benefit provided under this Plan
shall be subject to alienation or assignment by a Optionee (or by any person
entitled to such benefit pursuant to the terms of this Plan), nor shall it be
subject to attachment or other legal process of whatever nature. Any attempted
alienation, assignment or attachment shall be void and of no effect whatsoever.
Payment shall be made only to the Optionee entitled to receive the same or said
Optionee's authorized legal representative.
8.2 No Employment Right or Right of Retainer. Neither this
Plan nor any action taken hereunder shall be construed as giving any right to be
retained as an officer, employee or consultant of the Company or any of its
8.3 Tax Withholding. Either the Company or a Subsidiary, as
appropriate, shall have the right to deduct from all Awards paid in cash any
taxes as it deems to be required by law to be withheld with respect to such cash
payments. In the case of Awards paid in Stock, the employee or other person
receiving such Stock may be required to pay to the Company or a Subsidiary, as
appropriate, the amount of any such taxes which the Company or a Subsidiary is
required to withhold with respect to such Stock. At the request of an
Optionee, or as required by law, upon the exercise of an Option, such sums
as may be required for the payment of any estimated or accrued income tax
liability may be withheld or paid by the Optionee to the Company and remitted to
the governmental entity entitled to receive the same.
8.4 Fractional Shares. Any fractional shares concerning Awards
shall be eliminated at the time of payment or payout by rounding down for
fractions of less than one-half and rounding up for fractions of equal to or
more than one-half. No cash settlements shall be made with respect to fractional
shares eliminated by rounding.
8.5 Government and Other Regulations. The obligation of the
Company to make
payment of Awards in Stock or otherwise shall be subject to all applicable
laws, rules and regulations, and to such approvals by any government agencies
as may be required. If Stock awarded under the Plan may in certain
circumstances be exempt from registration under the Securities Act, the Company
may restrict its transfer in such manner as it deems advisable to ensure such
8.6 Company Successors. In the event the Company becomes a
party to a merger, consolidation, sale of substantially all of its assets or any
other corporate reorganization in which the Company will not be the surviving
corporation or in which the holders of the Stock will receive securities of
another corporation (in any such case, the "New Company"), then the New Company
shall assume the rights and obligations of the Company under this Plan.
8.7 Governing Law. All matters relating to the Plan or to
Awards granted hereunder shall be governed by the laws of the Netherlands
Antilles, without regard to the principles of conflict of laws.
8.8 Relationship to Other Benefits. No payment under the Plan
shall be taken into account in determining any benefits under any other pension,
retirement, profit-sharing or group insurance plan of the Company or any
8.9 Expenses. The expenses of administering the Plan shall be
borne by the Company and its Subsidiaries.
8.10 Titles and Headings. The titles and headings of the
sections in the Plan are for convenience of reference only, and in the event of
any conflict, the text of the Plan, rather than such titles and headings, shall
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Company has caused this Plan to be adopted
effective as of December 17, 1996.
