THIS SEPARATION AGREEMENT AND RELEASE (this “Agreement”) is entered into on February 1, 2018, by and between Armstrong Flooring, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) and Joseph N. Bondi (“Executive”). The Company and Executive may be referred to herein individually as a “Party” and collectively as the “Parties.”
WITNESSETH:
WHEREAS, Executive notified the Company of his intent to resign his position as Senior Vice President and Chief Product Officer, effective May 31, 2018 (the “Separation Date”), and the Company wishes to accept such resignation;
WHEREAS, for the purpose of transferring and transitioning Executive’s knowledge pertaining to the Company and its business solely and exclusively to others at the Company and/or its affiliated entities, the Parties desire that Executive serve in the employ of the Company for the employment transition period as set forth herein; and
WHEREAS, the Parties wish to enter into the arrangement set forth exclusively in this Agreement.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the promises and the releases, representations, covenants and obligations herein contained, the Company and Executive, intending to be legally bound, hereby agree as follows:

During the Employment Transition Period, Executive will continue in a full time non-executive, non-officer employment role reporting to the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Donald R. Maier (the “CEO”), or the CEO’s designee. Executive agrees that he will devote his full working time and effort to the performance of his duties hereunder during the Employment Transition Period.

During the Employment Transition Period, Executive will also receive his 2017 annual bonus, to the extent earned under the Company’s Annual Incentive Plan, when such bonuses are customarily paid.



(c)    Executive’s employment remains at-will during the Employment Transition Period. Executive acknowledges and agrees that on May 31, 2018, Executive’s employment with the Company will terminate unless earlier terminated by reason of Executive’s death or terminated by the Company due to a breach of this Agreement by Executive or for “Cause”.

Without limiting the generality of the forgoing, Executive shall not be eligible for any award under the Company’s Annual Incentive Plan in respect of 2018 or any grant of long-term incentive awards during or following the Employment Transition Period.  Company matching credits under the Company’s Nonqualified Deferred Compensation Plan that are unvested as of the Separation Date and all earnings on such credited amounts as of the Separation Date shall be forfeited in their entirety on the Separation Date. Executive shall be entitled to: (i) continue to vest in his award of restricted stock units granted on February 24, 2015, subject to his continued employment on the vesting date and otherwise in accordance with its terms, and (ii) continue to exercise his vested and exercisable stock options granted on May 19, 2014 for thirty (30) days following the expiration of any securities trading prohibition based on Executive’s involvement in any confidential Company project, which expiration shall occur no earlier than the first day of the Company’s first open trading window that occurs on or after the Separation Date, after which any stock options that remain unexercised shall terminate and the Company shall have no further obligation or responsibility with respect thereto.  Executive acknowledges that compliance with applicable securities laws is his responsibility. All other awards, if any, held by Executive that are outstanding on the Separation Date, including the performance stock awards granted on April 11, 2016 and March 7, 2017 and the time-based restricted stock units granted on January 5, 2018, shall terminate and be forfeited in their entirety, as of the Separation Date.
3.    Payments.

5.    Return of Property. Executive agrees that within five (5) business days of the Separation Date, he will deliver, without retaining any copies, all documents and other material in Executive’s possession relating, directly or indirectly, to any Confidential Information (as defined in Section 6 below) or other proprietary information of the Company, or Confidential Information or other proprietary information regarding third parties, learned as an employee of the Company, including, but not limited to, any and all documents, contracts, agreements, plans, books, notes, including electronically stored data and any copies of the foregoing, as well as all materials or equipment supplied by the Company, such as credit cards, laptop or other computer equipment.

6.    Confidentiality and Confidential Information.
(a)    Executive represents that he has held, and Executive agrees that he will at all times hold, in the strictest confidence and has not and will not make any unauthorized disclosure, directly or indirectly, of any Confidential Information of the Company, or third parties, or make any use thereof, directly or indirectly, except in working for the Company or as required by law, court order or regulation, provided Executive provides reasonable advance notice of any such required disclosure to the Company. Executive assigns to the Company any rights he may have or acquire in such Confidential Information and recognizes that all such information shall be the sole property of the Company and its successors or assigns.
(b)    “Confidential Information” means and includes the Company’s confidential and/or proprietary information and/or trade secrets, including those that have been and/or will be developed or used and that cannot be obtained readily by third parties from outside sources.

7.    Permitted Disclosures. Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 1833(b), Executive will not be held criminally or civilly liable under any Federal or State trade secret law for the disclosure of a trade secret of the Company that (i) is made (A) in confidence to a Federal, State, or local government official, either directly or indirectly, or to his attorney and (B) solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law; or (ii) is made in a complaint or other document that is filed under seal in a lawsuit or other proceeding.  If Executive files a lawsuit for retaliation by the Company for reporting a suspected violation of law, Executive may disclose the trade secret to his attorney and use the trade secret information in the court proceeding, if Executive (i) files any document containing the trade secret under seal, and (ii) does not disclose the trade secret, except pursuant to court order.  Nothing in this Agreement is intended to conflict with 18 U.S.C. § 1833(b) or create liability for disclosures of trade secrets that are expressly allowed by such section. Further, nothing in this Agreement or any other agreement that Executive has with the Company shall prohibit or restrict Executive from making any voluntary disclosure of information or documents concerning possible violations of law to, or seek a whistleblower award from, any governmental agency or legislative body, or any self-regulatory organization, in each case, without advance notice to the Company.
8.    Release.
(a)    Executive hereby releases, discharges and forever acquits the Company, and its affiliates and subsidiaries and the past, present and future stockholders, members, partners, directors, managers, employees, agents, attorneys, heirs, legal representatives, successors and assigns of the foregoing, in their personal and representative capacities (individually, “Company Party,” and collectively, the “Company Parties”), from liability for, and hereby waives, any and all employment-related claims, charges, liabilities, causes of action, rights, complaints, sums of money, suits, debts, covenants, contracts, agreements, promises, benefits, obligations, damages, demands or liabilities of every nature, kind and description, in law, equity or otherwise, whether known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected (collectively, “Claims”) which Executive or Executive’s heirs, executors, administrators, spouse, relatives, successors or assigns ever had, now has or may hereafter claim to have by reason of any matter, cause or thing whatsoever: (i) arising from the beginning of time through the date upon which Executive signs this Agreement including, but not limited to (A) any such Claims relating in any way to Executive’s employment relationship with the Company or any other Company Parties, and (B) any such Claims arising under any federal, state, local or foreign statute or regulation, including, without limitation, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 and any other federal, state, local or foreign law (statutory, regulatory or otherwise) that may be legally waived and released; (ii) relating to wrongful employment termination; or (iii) arising under or relating to any policy, agreement, understanding or promise, written or oral, formal or informal, between the Company or any of the other Company Parties and Executive, including, without limitation, the Amended and Restated Change in Control Severance Agreement between Executive and the Company, effective December 1, 2017 (“Change in Control Agreement”), the Company’s Severance Pay Plan for Executive Employees and any incentive compensation plan or stock option plan with any Company Party; provided, however, that nothing in this Release shall release or impair any rights that cannot be waived under applicable law or, subject to the last sentence of Section 2(d) of this Agreement, any direct or indirect holdings of equity or any vested awards (or awards which may vest) which Executive has under any equity, equity based, stock option or similar plan, agreement or program which equity and awards shall be subject to all the terms and conditions of such documents, any rights to accrued and vested benefits

(b)    Executive represents that Executive has not brought or joined any lawsuit or filed any charge or claim against any Company Party in any court or before any government agency and has made no assignment of any rights Executive has asserted or may have against any of the Company Parties to any person or entity, in each case, with respect to any released Claims.

13.    Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, and each counterpart, when so executed and delivered, shall be deemed to be an original and both counterparts, taken together, shall constitute one and the same Agreement. A faxed or .pdf-ed signature shall operate the same as an original signature.
14.    Successors and Assigns. This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the Company and any successor organization which shall succeed to the Company by acquisition, merger, consolidation or operation of law, or by acquisition of assets of the Company and any assigns. The Company shall require any successor or assign to assume and agree to perform under this Agreement in the same manner and to the same extent that the Company would have been required to perform it if no such succession or assignment had taken place, except under circumstance in which such assumption occurs by operation of law. As used in this Agreement, “Company” shall mean both the Company as defined above and any successor or assign that assumes and agrees to perform this agreement, by operation of law or otherwise.

15.    Section 409A.    The intent of the parties is that payments and benefits under this Agreement comply with section 409A of the Code to the extent subject thereto or be exempt therefrom, and, accordingly, to the maximum extent permitted, this Agreement shall be interpreted and administered to be in compliance therewith. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, to the extent required to avoid the application of an accelerated or additional tax under Section 409A of the Code, the Executive shall not be considered to have terminated

6




employment with the Company for purposes of this Agreement until such time as the Executive is considered to have incurred a “separation from service” from the Company within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code. Each amount to be paid or benefit to be provided under this Agreement shall be construed as a separately identified payment for purposes of Section 409A of the Code, and any payments that are due within the “short term deferral period” as defined by Section 409A of the Code shall not be treated as deferred compensation unless applicable law requires otherwise.
16.    Severability; Blue-Penciling. The provisions of this Agreement are severable and the invalidity of any one or more provisions shall not affect the validity of any other provision. In the event that a court of competent jurisdiction shall determine that any provision of this Agreement or the application thereof is unenforceable in whole or in part because of the scope thereof, the Parties hereto agree that said court in making such determination shall have the power to reduce the scope of such provision to the extent necessary to make it enforceable, and that this Agreement in its reduced form shall be valid and enforceable to the full extent permitted by law.
17.    Governing Law. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, without regard to any conflict of law principles thereof that would give rise to the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction.
18.    Entire Agreement/No Oral Modifications. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Executive and any of the Company Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior negotiations, representations, arrangements or agreements relating thereto, whether written or oral, including but not limited to the Change in Control Agreement, provided, however, that Section 8 of the Change in Control Agreement shall remain in effect. Executive represents that in executing this Agreement, Executive has not relied on any representation or statement not set forth herein. No amendment or modification of this Agreement shall be valid or binding on the Parties unless in writing and signed by both Parties.
