Compensation Committee Charter
The Compensation Committee (the Committee) of the Board of Directors (the Board) of NavSight Holdings, Inc. (the Company) shall consist of two or more members of the Board, each of whom the Board has determined has no material relationship with the Company and each of whom is otherwise independent under the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) applicable to Compensation Committee members, subject to the applicable phase-in periods permitted by the rules of the NYSE. In addition, in determining whether a director is eligible to serve on the Committee, the Board may consider whether such person is a non-employee director within the meaning of Rule 16b-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act). Any action duly taken by the Committee shall be valid and effective, whether or not the members of the Committee at the time of such action are later determined not to have satisfied the requirements for membership provided herein.
Members shall be appointed by the Board based on the recommendation of the Companys Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee. Members shall serve at the pleasure of the Board and for such term or terms as the Board may determine.
Committee Purpose and Responsibilities
The following shall be the purpose and responsibilities of the Committee, as applicable:
The Committee shall review and approve the corporate goals and objectives relevant to compensation of the Companys Chief Executive Officer, evaluate the Chief Executive Officers performance in light of those goals and objectives and, either as a committee or together with other independent directors (as directed by the Board), determine and approve the Chief Executive Officers compensation level based on this evaluation. In determining the long-term incentive component of the Chief Executive Officers compensation, the Committee shall consider, among other factors, the Companys performance and relative shareholder return, the value of similar incentive awards to executives at comparable companies, and the awards given to such persons in prior years.
The Committee shall set salaries and approve incentive compensation awards and equity compensation plan awards, as well as compensation policies for all Section 16 Officers as designated by the Board (other than the Chief Executive Officer, whose compensation is determined in accordance with paragraph A above).
The Committee shall make recommendations to the Board with respect to all equity-based compensation plans that are subject to Board approval and any modification to any such plans.
The Committee shall oversee the Companys compliance with the requirement under the applicable stock exchange rules that, with limited exceptions, shareholders approve equity compensation plans.
Subject to applicable law and the terms of applicable plan documents, the Committee shall have the power to establish, administer, amend, manage, periodically review and, where appropriate, terminate all annual bonus, long-term incentive compensation, stock option, employee pension and welfare benefit plans, including 401(k) plans, employee stock purchase plans, long-term incentive plans, management incentive plans and other plans. Specifically with respect to cash or equity incentive compensation plans, the Committee shall be responsible for granting any awards under equity compensation plans and annual bonus plans to the Chief Executive Officer and Section 16 Officers as designated by the Board.
The Committee shall authorize and approve any employment or severance agreements and amendments with all designated Section 16 Officers.

The Committee shall periodically review and approve the form and amount of compensation of the Boards non-management directors.

Committee Structure and Operations
The Board shall designate one member of the Committee as its chairperson. The Committee shall set its schedule of meetings at a date, time and place determined by the Committee chairperson, with further meetings to occur, or actions to be taken by unanimous written consent, when deemed necessary or desirable by the Committee or its chairperson. Members of the Committee may participate in a meeting of the Committee by means of conference call or similar communications equipment by means of which all persons participating in the meeting can hear each other.
The Committee may invite such members of management to its meetings as it deems appropriate, consistent with the maintenance of the confidentiality of compensation discussions. Unless specifically invited by the Committee, the Chief Executive Officer should not attend any meeting where his performance or compensation is discussed.
Delegation to Subcommittee
The Committee may, in its discretion, delegate all or a portion of its duties and responsibilities to a subcommittee of the Committee, so long as such subcommittee is solely comprised of one or more members of the Committee and such delegation is not otherwise inconsistent with law and applicable rules and regulations of the SEC and NYSE. In particular, the Committee may delegate the approval of certain decisions to a subcommittee consisting solely of members of the Committee who are Non-Employee Directors for the purposes of Rule 16b-3 under the Exchange Act.
The Committee shall conduct an annual performance evaluation of the Committee, which evaluation shall compare the performance of the Committee with the requirements of this charter. The performance evaluation by the Committee shall be conducted in such manner as the Committee deems appropriate. The Committee shall also review its charter annually and approve any improvements necessary or desirable to the Committee.
