This Employment Agreement (the "Agreement") made this 10th day of April, 2018 between PerkinElmer, Inc., a Massachusetts corporation (hereinafter called the "Company"), and James Mock (hereinafter referred to as the "Employee").


WHEREAS, the Company wishes to employ the Employee in a management position; and

WHEREAS, the Employee hereby agrees to the compensation herein provided and agrees to serve the Company to the best of his ability during the period of this Agreement.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the sum of One Dollar, and of the mutual covenants herein contained, the parties agree as follows:



Except as hereinafter otherwise provided, the Company agrees to employ the employee in a management position with the Company, and the Employee agrees to remain in the employment of the Company in that capacity for a period of one year from the date hereof and from year to year thereafter until such time as this Agreement is terminated in accordance with Paragraph 5.


The Company will, during each year of the term of this Agreement, place in nomination before the Board of Directors of the Company the name of the Employee for election as an Officer of the Company except when a notice of termination has been given in accordance with Paragraph 5(b).

2. The Employee agrees that, during the specified period of employment, he shall, to the best of his ability, perform his duties, and shall devote his full business time, best efforts, business judgment, skill and knowledge to the advancement of the Company and its interests and to the discharge of his duties and responsibilities hereunder. The Employee shall not engage in any business, profession or occupation which would conflict with the rendition of the agreed-upon services, either directly or indirectly, without the prior approval of the Board of Directors, except for personal investment, charitable and philanthropic activities.

3. During the period of his employment under this Agreement, the Employee shall be compensated for his services as follows:

(a) Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, he shall be paid a salary during the period of this Agreement at a base rate to be determined by the Company on an annual basis. Except as provided in Paragraph 3(d), such annual base salary shall under no circumstances be fixed at a rate below the annual base rate then currently in effect;

Employment Agreement

(b) He shall be reimbursed for any and all monies expended by him in connection with his employment for reasonable and necessary expenses on behalf of the Company in accordance with the policies of the Company then in effect;

(c) He shall be eligible to participate under any and all bonus, benefit, pension, compensation, and equity and incentive plans which are, in accordance with Company policy and the terms of the plan, available to persons in his position (within the limitation as stipulated by such plans). Such eligibility shall not automatically entitle him to participate in any such plan;

(d) If, because of adverse business conditions or for other reasons, the Company at any time puts into effect salary reductions applicable at a single rate to all management employees of the Company generally, the salary payments required to be made under this Agreement to the Employee during any period in which such general reduction is in effect may be reduced by the same percentage as is applicable to all management employees of the Company generally. Any benefits made available to the Employee which are related to base salary shall also be reduced in accordance with any salary reduction.



So long as the Employee is employed by the Company and for a period of one year after the termination or expiration of employment, the Employee will not directly or indirectly: (i) as an individual proprietor, partner, stockholder, officer, employee, director, joint venturer, investor, lender, or in any other capacity whatsoever (other than as the holder of not more than one percent (1%) of the total outstanding stock of a publicly held company), engage directly or indirectly in any business or entity which competes with the business conducted by the Company or its affiliates in any city or geographic area in which the Company or its affiliates conduct material operations at the time of termination of employment under this Agreement, except as approved in advance by the Board after full and adequate disclosure; or (ii) recruit, solicit or induce, or attempt to induce, any employee or employees or consultant or consultants of the Company to terminate their employment with, to otherwise cease their relationship with, the Company; or (iii) solicit, divert or take away, or attempt to divert or to take away, the business or patronage of any of the clients, customers or accounts, of the Company.

(b) If any restriction set forth in this Paragraph 4 is found by any court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable because it extends for too long a period of time or over too great a range of activities or in too broad a geographical area, it shall be interpreted to extend only over the maximum period of time, range of activities or geographic area as to which it may be enforceable.

(c) The restrictions contained in this Paragraph 4 are necessary for the protection of the business and goodwill of the Company and are considered by the Employee to be reasonable for such purpose. The Employee agrees that any breach of this Paragraph 4 will cause the Company substantial and irrevocable damage and therefore, in the event of any such breach, in addition to such other remedies which may be available, the Company shall have the right to seek specific performance and injunctive relief.
