For purposes of this Agreement, a “Change in Control” means a (i) Change in Ownership of Playa Hotel & Resorts, N.V. (“Playa”), (ii) Change in Ownership of Assets of Playa, or (iii) a Change in Effective Control of Playa, as described herein and construed in accordance with Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”).

(A)    A “Change in Ownership of Playa” shall occur on the date that any Person acquires, or Persons Acting as a Group acquire, ownership of the equity interests of Playa that, together with the stock held by such Person or Group, constitutes more than fifty percent (50%) of the total fair market value or total voting power of the equity interests of Playa. However, if any Person is, or Persons Acting as a Group are, considered to own more than fifty percent (50%) of the total fair market value or total voting power of the equity interests of Playa, the acquisition of additional stock by the same Person or Persons Acting as a Group is not considered to cause a Change in Ownership of Playa.
