PROXY STATEMENT
FOR A SPECIAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS

DECEMBER 16, 2010

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THESE PROXY MATERIALS AND VOTING

Why am I receiving these materials?

        The Company has sent you this proxy statement and the enclosed proxy card because the Board of Directors of Omnicell, Inc. is soliciting your proxy to vote at a Special Meeting of Stockholders (the "Special Meeting"). You are invited to attend the Special Meeting to vote on the proposal described in this proxy statement. However, you do not need to attend the meeting to vote your shares. Instead, you may simply complete, sign and return the enclosed proxy card, or follow the instructions below to submit your proxy over the telephone or over the Internet.

        The Company intends to mail this proxy statement and accompanying proxy card on or about November 19, 2010 to all stockholders of record entitled to vote at the Special Meeting.

Who can vote at the Special Meeting?

        Only stockholders of record at the close of business on November 8, 2010 will be entitled to vote at the Special Meeting. On the record date, there were 32,970,333 shares of common stock outstanding and entitled to vote.

        If on November 8, 2010 your shares were registered directly in your name with Omnicell's transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company, N.A., then you are a stockholder of record. As a stockholder of record, you may vote in person at the meeting or vote by proxy. Whether or not you plan to attend the meeting, we urge you to fill out and return the enclosed proxy card or vote by proxy over the telephone or on the Internet as instructed below to ensure your vote is counted.

        If on November 8, 2010 your shares were held, not in your name, but rather in an account at a brokerage firm, bank, dealer, or other similar organization, then you are the beneficial owner of shares held in "street name" and these proxy materials are being forwarded to you by that organization. The organization holding your account is considered to be the stockholder of record for purposes of voting at the Special Meeting. As a beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your broker or other agent regarding how to vote the shares in your account. You are also invited to attend the Special Meeting. However, since you are not the stockholder of record, you may not vote your shares in person at the meeting unless you request and obtain a valid proxy from your broker or other agent.

        The Special Meeting will be held at the Company's headquarters located at 1201 Charleston Road, Mountain View, California 94043. If you need directions to the meeting, please visit: http://www.omnicell.com/Company/Pages/OfficeLocations.aspx

What am I voting on?

        The one (1) matter scheduled for a vote is the approval of an amendment to our 2009 Equity Incentive Plan to, among other items, add an additional 2,600,000 shares to the number of shares of common stock authorized for issuance under the plan.


What if another matter is properly brought before the meeting?

        The Board of Directors knows of no other matters that will be presented for consideration at the Special Meeting. If any other matters are properly brought before the meeting, it is the intention of the persons named in the accompanying proxy to vote on those matters in accordance with their best judgment.

How do I vote?

        You may vote "For" or "Against" or abstain from voting. The procedures for voting are fairly simple:

        If you are a stockholder of record, you may vote in person at the Special Meeting, vote by proxy using the enclosed proxy card, vote by proxy over the telephone, or vote by proxy over the Internet. Whether or not you plan to attend the meeting, we urge you to vote by proxy to ensure your vote is counted. You may still attend the meeting and vote in person even if you have already voted by proxy.

        If you are a beneficial owner of shares registered in the name of your broker, bank, or other agent, you should have received a proxy card and voting instructions with these proxy materials from that organization rather than from Omnicell. Simply complete and mail the proxy card to ensure that your vote is counted. Alternatively, you may vote by telephone or over the Internet as instructed by your broker or bank. To vote in person at the Special Meeting, you must obtain a valid proxy from your broker, bank, or other agent. Follow the instructions from your broker or bank included with these proxy materials, or contact your broker or bank to request a proxy form.

We provide Internet proxy voting to allow you to vote your shares on-line, with procedures designed to ensure the authenticity and correctness of your proxy vote instructions. However, please be aware that you must bear any costs associated with your Internet access, such as usage charges from Internet access providers and telephone companies.

How many votes do I have?

        On each matter to be voted upon, you have one vote for each share of common stock you owned as of November 8, 2010.

2


What if I return a proxy card or otherwise vote but do not make specific choices?

        If you return a signed and dated proxy card without marking any voting selections, your shares will be voted "For" the approval of the amendment to our 2009 Equity Incentive Plan to, among other items, add an additional 2,600,000 shares to the number of shares of common stock authorized for issuance under the plan. If any other matter is properly presented at the meeting, your proxy holder (one of the individuals named on your proxy card) will vote your shares using his or her best judgment.

Who is paying for this proxy solicitation?

        We will pay for the entire cost of soliciting proxies. In addition to these mailed proxy materials, our directors and employees may also solicit proxies in person, by telephone, or by other means of communication. Directors and employees will not be paid any additional compensation for soliciting proxies. We may also reimburse brokerage firms, banks and other agents for the cost of forwarding proxy materials to beneficial owners.

What does it mean if I receive more than one set of proxy materials?

        If you receive more than one set of proxy materials, your shares are registered in more than one name or are registered in different accounts. Please complete, sign and return each proxy card to ensure that all of your shares are voted.

Can I change my vote after submitting my proxy?

        Yes. You can revoke your proxy at any time before the final vote at the meeting. If you are the record holder of your shares, you may revoke your proxy in any one of three ways:

        Your most current proxy card or telephone or internet proxy is the one that is counted.

        If your shares are held by your broker or bank as a nominee or agent, you should follow the instructions provided by your broker or bank.

When are stockholder proposals due for next year's Annual Meeting?

        To be considered for inclusion in next year's proxy materials, your proposal must be submitted in writing by December 17, 2010, to Omnicell's Corporate Secretary at 1201 Charleston Road, Mountain View, California 94043. However, if Omnicell's 2011 Annual Meeting of Stockholders is not held between April 25, 2011 and June 24, 2011, then the deadline will be a reasonable time prior to the time we begin to print and mail our proxy materials. If you wish to submit a proposal that is not to be included in next year's proxy materials or nominate a director, you must do so no earlier than close of business on January 25, 2011 and no later than close of business on February 24, 2011. We also advise you to review Omnicell's Bylaws, which contain additional requirements about advance notice of stockholder proposals and director nominations. If you do not comply with these requirements, you will not be able to make a stockholder proposal or nomination at next year's annual meeting.

How are votes counted?

        Votes will be counted by the inspector of election appointed for the Special Meeting, who will count "Against" votes, abstentions and broker non-votes. Abstentions will be counted towards the vote total and will have the same effect as "Against" votes. Broker non-votes have no effect.

3


What are "broker non-votes"?

        Broker non-votes occur when a nominee, such as a broker or bank, holding shares for a beneficial owner does not vote on a particular proposal because the nominee does not have discretionary voting power with respect to that proposal and has not received instructions with respect to that proposal from the beneficial owner. If you do not give instructions to your broker, your broker can vote your shares with respect to "discretionary" items, but not with respect to "non-discretionary" items. Discretionary items are proposals considered routine under the rules of the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") on which your broker may vote shares held in street name in the absence of your voting instructions. Non-discretionary items are matters that may substantially affect the rights or privileges of stockholders, such as mergers, stockholder proposals and, for the first time, under a new amendment to the NYSE rules, elections of directors, even if not contested. In the event that a broker, bank, custodian, nominee or other record holder of Omnicell common stock indicates on a proxy that it does not have discretionary authority to vote certain shares on a particular proposal, then those shares will be treated as broker non-votes with respect to that proposal. Accordingly, if you own shares through a nominee, such as a broker or bank, please be sure to instruct your nominee how to vote to ensure that your vote is counted on the plan amendment proposal.

How many votes are needed to approve the proposal?

        For the approval of the amendment to our 2009 Equity Incentive Plan to add an additional 2,600,000 shares to the number of shares of common stock authorized for issuance under the plan, Proposal No. 1 must receive a "For" vote from the majority of shares present and entitled to vote either in person or by proxy. If you abstain from voting, it will have the same effect as an "Against" vote. Broker non-votes will have no effect.

What is the quorum requirement?

        A quorum of stockholders is necessary to hold a valid meeting. A quorum will be present if at least a majority of the outstanding shares are represented by stockholders present at the meeting or represented by proxy. On the record date, there were 32,970,333 shares outstanding and entitled to vote. Thus, the holders of 16,485,167 shares must be present in person or represented by proxy at the meeting or by proxy to have a quorum.

        Your shares will be counted towards the quorum only if you submit a valid proxy (or one is submitted on your behalf by your broker, bank or other nominee) or if you vote in person at the meeting. Abstentions and broker non-votes will be counted towards the quorum requirement. If there is no quorum, the holders of a majority of shares present at the meeting in person or represented by proxy may adjourn the meeting to another date.

How can I find out the results of the voting at the Special Meeting?

        Preliminary voting results will be announced at the Special Meeting. Final voting results will be published in a current report on Form 8-K that we expect to file within four days of the Special Meeting. If final voting results are not available to us in time to file a current report on Form 8-K within four business days after the Special Meeting, we intend to file a current report on Form 8-K to publish preliminary results and, within four business days after the final results are known to us, file an additional current report on Form 8-K to publish the final results.

What proxy materials are available on the internet?

        The letter to stockholders, proxy statement, and annual report on Form 10-K are available at http://ir.omnicell.com/annual.cfm.

PROPOSAL NO. 1
APPROVAL OF AN AMENDMENT TO OUR 2009 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN

Overview

        Our Board of Directors is requesting stockholder approval of an amendment (the "Amendment') to the Omnicell, Inc. 2009 Equity Incentive Plan (the "2009 Plan") in order to (i) increase the number of shares of common stock authorized for issuance under the 2009 Plan by 2,600,000 shares and (ii) provide that the number of shares of common stock available for issuance under the 2009 Plan be reduced by 1.8 shares (an increase from 1.4 shares) for each share of common stock issued pursuant to restricted stock, restricted stock units, performance stock awards, or other stock awards permitted by the 2009 Plan.

        On November 17, 2010, our Board of Directors unanimously approved the Amendment, subject to stockholder approval. The Board of Directors believes that the 2009 Plan is an integral part of our long-term compensation philosophy and the Amendment is necessary to continue providing the appropriate levels and types of equity compensation for our employees.

Why we are asking our stockholders to approve the Amendment

        As of September 30, 2010, approximately 1,176,513 shares will be available for future issuance under the 2009 Plan, excluding the shares reserved for issuance upon exercise of outstanding options or vesting of restricted stock units (and without giving effect to the approval of this Proposal No. 1 and adoption of the Amendment). Without replenishment, we believe such amount may be insufficient to meet our anticipated employee recruiting and retention needs beyond the Annual Meeting of Stockholders in 2011. We do not presently have any current plans, proposals or arrangements, written or otherwise, to issue any of the newly available authorized shares under the 2009 Plan.

        Our 2009 Plan permits for a variety of equity awards, including stock options, stock appreciation rights and "Full-Value Awards", which consist of restricted stock, restricted stock units, performance stock awards and other stock awards. We believe that Full-Value Awards are increasingly common among our peer group of companies and this element of compensation is part of our competitive compensation package. In addition, we believe that Full-Value Awards encourage employee retention during economic or market cycles when our stock price declines, because such awards retain a large portion of their value even if the stock price declines after the date of grant. An approval of an additional 2,600,000 shares to our 2009 Plan does not provide us with the right to issue an additional 2,600,000 Full-Value Awards. Under the current version of the 2009 Plan, the issuance of one share issued under a Full-Value Award reduces or depletes the number of shares of common stock available for future equity awards under the 2009 Plan by 1.4 shares. To balance our request for additional shares with potential stockholder dilution concerns, the proposed Amendment would result in this depletion of the share reserve more rapidly—that is, at 1.8 shares for each share of common stock issued pursuant to a Full-Value Award granted on and after October 1, 2010. Awards granted as stock options and stock appreciation rights would continue to reduce the number of shares available for issuance under the 2009 Plan on a one-for-one basis because vested options contribute to overall dilution only if they are "in-the-money." We expect to grant both stock options and Full-Value Awards in the future.

        In connection with our stock-based compensation programs, we seek to balance the need to maintain a talented resource pool in a highly competitive business with efforts to closely monitor our stock award "burn rate," which is defined as the number of shares subject to stock awards granted in a fiscal year divided by the weighted average common shares outstanding for that fiscal year. In connection with the approval of the Amendment and in order to address any potential stockholder concerns regarding the number of stock awards we intend to grant in a given year, our Board of Directors (the "Board") commits to our stockholders that for the next three fiscal years, beginning with

5



the fiscal year ending December 31, 2010, the "burn rate" under the 2009 Plan shall not exceed 4.02% per year on average. This percentage represents the average of the mean plus one standard deviation for the Company's Global Industry Classification Standard Grouping with respect to Russell 3000 companies for 2009 and 2010. For purposes of calculating the number of shares granted in a year, each share subject to a stock award which is a Full-Value Award will count as equivalent to (i) 1.5 shares if our annual stock price volatility is 54.6% or higher, (ii) two shares if our annual stock price volatility is 36.1% or higher and less than 54.6%, (iii) 2.5 shares if our annual stock price volatility is 24.9% or higher and less than 36.1%, (iv) three shares if our annual stock price volatility is 16.5% or higher and less than 24.9%, (v) 3.5 shares if our annual stock price volatility is 7.9% or higher and less than 16.5% and (vi) four shares if our annual stock price volatility is less than 7.9%.

Equity Awards are an Integral Component of our Compensation Program

        Equity awards have been historically and, we believe, will continue to be an integral component of our overall compensation program for all of our employees, officers and directors. Approval of the Amendment will allow us to continue to grant stock options and other equity awards at levels our Compensation Committee determines to be appropriate in order to attract new employees and directors, retain our existing employees and to provide incentives for such persons to exert maximum efforts for the Company's success and ultimately increase stockholder value. In addition, to the extent that we expand our business or product lines through the acquisition of other businesses, we anticipate that we would need to provide competitive equity compensation packages to any newly acquired employees. The Amendment allows the Company to continue to utilize a broad array of equity incentives with flexibility in designing such incentives, including traditional option grants, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock awards, restricted stock unit awards and performance stock awards.

        As of September 30, 2010, approximately 43% of our outstanding equity awards are held by non-executive employees and more than half of the equity awards held by employees are fully vested and exercisable. We believe it is critical for our long-term success that our employees' interests are tied to the success of the Company as "owners" of our business. The equity incentive programs we have in place have worked to build stockholder value by attracting and retaining extraordinarily talented employees. We believe, and the industry benchmarks that we compare ourselves to support the belief that we must continue to offer competitive equity compensation packages in order to attract and motivate the talent necessary for our continued growth and success.

        Our Compensation Committee carefully monitors our annual burn rate, total dilution and equity compensation expense to ensure that we maximize stockholder value by granting only the appropriate number and type of equity awards necessary to attract, reward and retain key employees and directors. In addition, we use industry benchmarks to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness and reasonableness of the equity compensation we offer to our employees and prospective employees with the goal of attracting and retaining our most valuable human assets without exceeding what the market requires in a competitive environment. We use a nationally-recognized compensation market intelligence provider in the technology and life sciences industries to benchmark the equity required to remain competitive for non-executive employees and attempt to stay in the middle bands of those benchmarks. Also as discussed in our "Compensation Discussion and Analysis," our Compensation Committee benchmarks the equity expense associated with equity awards granted to our executive officers against a group of comparable publicly-traded companies based on such factors as revenue, market capitalization and, to the extent possible, industry similarity, that we believe provides a meaningful cross-section from which to benchmark executive compensation. The three-year average equity expense related to each of our executive's grants ranges from 35% to 45% of the average expenses to executive officers in such peer group.

        In requesting approval of the Amendment, we are asking stockholders for a pool of shares that we believe, absent a material company acquisition or similar event, will be sufficient for approximately the

6



next three years to provide an appropriate amount of equity for attracting, retaining, and motivating employees and directors as we continue to grow our business.

Important Aspects of our 2009 Plan Designed to Protect our Stockholders' Interests

        The 2009 Plan was unanimously adopted by our Board of Directors on March 5, 2009 and approved by our stockholders on May 19, 2009 at our 2009 Annual Meeting. We included certain provisions in the 2009 Plan that are designed to protect our stockholders' interests and to reflect corporate governance best practices including:


General 2009 Plan Information

        The 2009 Plan was the successor to and continuation of the 1999 Equity Incentive Plan, 2003 Equity Incentive Plan and 2004 Equity Incentive Plan, or together (the "Prior Plans"). All outstanding stock awards granted under the Prior Plans continue to be subject to the terms and conditions as set forth in the agreements evidencing such stock awards and the terms of the Prior Plans, but no additional awards have been granted under the Prior Plans since May 19, 2009.

7


        As of September 30, 2010, the total number of shares of the Company's common stock reserved for issuance under the 2009 Plan is 2,100,000 shares plus the number of shares subject to stock awards outstanding under the Prior Plans that terminate prior to exercise and would otherwise be returned to the share reserves under the Prior Plans.

Description of the 2009 Equity Incentive Plan

        The material features of the 2009 Plan are outlined below. This summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the 2009 Plan, as amended. Stockholders are urged to read the actual text of the 2009 Plan in its entirety, which is appended to this proxy statement as Appendix A and may be accessed from the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.

Background and Purpose

        The 2009 Plan provides for the grant of stock options, restricted stock, restricted stock units, stock appreciation rights, other stock-related awards, and performance awards that may be settled in cash, stock or other property.

        The purpose of the 2009 Plan is to provide a means by which employees, directors, and consultants may be given an opportunity to purchase the Company's common stock to assist it in recruiting new employees and directors, retaining the services of current employees and directors, and to provide incentives for such persons to exert maximum efforts for the Company's success.

Shares Available for Awards

        After giving effect to the approval of Proposal No. 1, the total number of shares of the Company's common stock reserved for issuance under the 2009 Plan would have been 4,700,000 as of December 16, 2010. This share reserve consists of (a) 2,100,000 shares currently reserved for issuance under the 2009 Plan, plus (b) an additional 2,600,000 shares subject to approval of the stockholders at the Special Meeting. In addition, the share reserve will be increased by the number of shares subject to stock awards outstanding under the Prior Plans that terminate prior to exercise and would otherwise be returned to the share reserves under the Prior Plans less one share for each share of common stock issued pursuant to an option or stock appreciation right granted after December 31, 2008 under the Prior Plans with respect to which the strike price is at least 100% of the fair market value of the underlying common stock on the date of grant and 1.4 shares for each share of stock issued pursuant to an award other than an option or stock appreciation right granted after December 31, 2008 under the Prior Plans.

        This aggregate number is referred to as the "Share Reserve." The number of shares available for issuance under the 2009 Plan is reduced by (i) one share for each share of common stock issued pursuant to an option or stock appreciation right with a strike price of at least 100% of the fair market value of the underlying common stock on the date of grant; (ii) prior to October 1, 2010, 1.4 shares for each share of common stock issued pursuant to restricted stock, restricted stock units, performance stock awards, or other stock awards granted under the 2009 Plan; and (iii) on or after October 1, 2010, 1.8 shares for each share of common stock issued pursuant to restricted stock, restricted stock units, performance stock awards, or other stock awards granted under the 2009 Plan.

        As of September 30, 2010, options to purchase approximately 4,587,310 shares were outstanding and awards other than options and stock appreciation rights covering an aggregate of 372,682 shares were outstanding and 1,176,513 shares were available for future issuance under the 2009 Plan. The weighted average exercise price of all options outstanding as of September 30, 2010 was approximately $12.82 and the weighted average remaining term of such options was approximately 5.95 years. A total of 32,927,652 shares of the Company's common stock were outstanding as of September 30, 2010.

8


        If a stock award expires or otherwise terminates without having been exercised in full or is settled in cash, such expiration, termination or settlement shall not reduce (or otherwise offset) the number of shares of the common stock that may be issued pursuant to the 2009 Plan. If any shares of common stock issued pursuant to a stock award are forfeited back to the Company because of the failure to meet a contingency or condition required to vest such shares in the participant, then the shares which are forfeited shall revert to and again become available for issuance under the 2009 Plan. Any shares reacquired by the Company pursuant to its withholding obligations or as consideration for the exercise of an option shall not again become available for issuance under the 2009 Plan. In addition, if the exercise price of any award is satisfied by the tender of shares of common stock to us (whether by actual delivery or attestation), the shares tendered will not again be available for issuance under the 2009 Plan.

        To the extent there is a share of common stock issued pursuant to (i) a stock award that counted as 1.4 shares against the number of shares available for issuance under the 2009 Plan before October 1, 2010 or (ii) an award other than an option or stock appreciation right granted under the Prior Plans with respect to which the strike price is at least 100% of the fair market value of the underlying common stock on the date of grant, and such share of common stock again becomes available for issuance under the 2009 Plan before October 1, 2010, then the number of shares of common stock available for issuance under the 2009 Plan shall increase by 1.4 shares. To the extent there is a share of common stock issued pursuant to (i) a stock award that counted as 1.4 or 1.8 shares against the number of shares available for issuance under the 2009 Plan or (ii) an award other than an option or stock appreciation right granted under the Prior Plans with respect to which the strike price is at least 100% of the fair market value of the underlying common stock on the date of grant, and such share of common stock again becomes available for issuance under the 2009 Plan on or after October 1, 2010, then the number of shares of common stock available for issuance under the 2009 Plan shall increase by 1.8 shares.

Eligibility

        Incentive stock options may be granted under the 2009 Plan only to the Company's employees and employees of Omnicell's affiliates. The Company's employees, consultants and directors and employees and consultants of Omnicell's affiliates are eligible to receive all other types of awards under the 2009 Plan. As of September 30, 2010, approximately 738 employees, directors and consultants were eligible to participate in the 2009 Plan.

Administration

        The 2009 Plan is administered by the Board of Directors, which may in turn delegate authority to administer the plan to a committee. The Board of Directors has delegated administration of the 2009 Plan to the Compensation Committee. Subject to the terms of the 2009 Plan, the Compensation Committee determines recipients, the numbers and types of stock awards to be granted, the terms and conditions of the stock awards, including the period of their exercisability and vesting. Subject to the limitations set forth below, the Compensation Committee also determines the fair market value applicable to a stock award and the exercise price of options granted under the 2009 Plan.

Repricing

        The 2009 Plan expressly provides that, without the approval of the stockholders within 12 months prior to such event, the Compensation Committee shall not have the authority to reduce the exercise price of any outstanding stock awards under the plan or cancel any outstanding stock awards that have an exercise price or strike price greater than the current fair market value of the common stock in exchange for cash or other stock awards under the 2009 Plan.

9


Vesting

        Shares subject to awards under the 2009 Plan generally vest in accordance with the stock award agreement for such stock award.

Stock Options

        If stock options are granted, they are granted pursuant to stock option agreements. The 2009 Plan permits the grant of options that qualify as incentive stock options, or ISOs, and nonstatutory stock options, or NSOs. Generally, the exercise price for an option cannot be less than 100% of the fair market value of the common stock subject to the option on the date of grant. Options granted under the 2009 Plan will vest at the rate specified in the option agreement.

        In general, the term of stock options granted under the 2009 Plan may not exceed ten years. Except as explicitly provided otherwise in an optionholder's award agreement, options granted under the 2009 Plan generally terminate three months after termination of the participant's service unless (i) termination is due to the participant's disability, in which case the option may be exercised (to the extent the option was exercisable at the time of the termination of service) at any time within 12 months following termination; (ii) the participant dies before the participant's service has terminated, or within the period (if any) specified in the stock option agreement after termination of service for a reason other than death, in which case the option may be exercised (to the extent the option was exercisable at the time of the participant's death) within 18 months following the participant's death by the person or persons to whom the rights to such option have passed; (iii) the participant is terminated for cause in which case the option will cease to be exercisable immediately upon the participant's termination, or (iv) the option by its terms specifically provides otherwise. An option term may be extended in the event that exercise of the option following termination of service is prohibited by applicable securities laws. The amount of time allowable after termination to exercise an option may be extended if upon exercise the participant would be in violation of the registration requirements under the Securities Act or Omnicell's insider trading policy. In such cases, the applicable period within which a participant may exercise an option after termination is extended to the time in which the exercise of the option would not be in violation of such laws or policies. In no event may an option be exercised after its expiration date.

        Acceptable forms of consideration for the purchase of Omnicell common stock issued under the 2009 Plan will be determined by the Compensation Committee and may include cash, check, bank draft or money order made payable to the Company, common stock previously owned by the optionholder, payment through a broker assisted exercise or, for NSOs only, a net exercise feature, or other legal consideration approved by the Compensation Committee.

        Generally, an optionholder may not transfer a stock option other than by will or the laws of descent and distribution or a domestic relations order. However, to the extent permitted under the terms of the applicable stock option agreement, an optionholder may designate a beneficiary who may exercise the option following the optionholder's death.

Limitations

        The aggregate fair market value, determined at the time of grant, of shares of Omnicell common stock with respect to ISOs that are exercisable for the first time by an optionholder during any calendar year under all of the Company's equity compensation plans may not exceed $100,000. The options or portions of options that exceed this limit are treated as NSOs. No ISO may be granted to any person who, at the time of the grant, owns or is deemed to own stock possessing more than 10% of the

10



Company's total combined voting power or that of any affiliate unless the following conditions are satisfied:

        The aggregate maximum number of shares of common stock that may be issued pursuant to the exercise of ISOs shall be the number of shares of common stock in the Share Reserve. In addition, no employee may be granted options, stock appreciation rights, or other stock awards under the 2009 Plan covering more than 1,500,000 shares of our common stock in any calendar year.

Restricted Stock Awards

        If restricted stock awards are granted, they are granted pursuant to restricted stock award agreements. A restricted stock award may be granted in consideration for cash, check, bank draft or money order payable to the Company, the recipient's past or future services performed for the Company or an affiliate of the Company, or any other form of legal consideration acceptable to the Compensation Committee. Shares of Omnicell common stock acquired under a restricted stock award may be subject to forfeiture to us in accordance with a vesting schedule to be determined by the Compensation Committee. Rights to acquire shares of Omnicell common stock under a restricted stock award may be transferred only upon such terms and conditions as are set forth in the restricted stock award agreement.

Restricted Stock Unit Awards

        If restricted stock unit awards are granted, they are granted pursuant to restricted stock unit award agreements. Payment of any purchase price may be made in any legal form acceptable to the Compensation Committee. The Company will settle a payment due to a recipient of a restricted stock unit award by delivery of shares of our common stock, by cash, by a combination of cash and stock as deemed appropriate by our Compensation Committee, or in any other form of consideration determined by the Compensation Committee and set forth in the restricted stock unit award agreement. Dividend equivalents may be credited in respect of shares of Omnicell common stock covered by a restricted stock unit award. Restricted stock unit awards may be subject to vesting in accordance with a vesting schedule to be determined by the Compensation Committee. Except as otherwise provided in the applicable restricted stock unit award agreement, restricted stock units that have not vested will be forfeited upon the participant's termination of continuous service for any reason.

Stock Appreciation Rights

        If stock appreciation rights are granted, they are granted pursuant to a stock appreciation rights agreement. Each stock appreciation right is denominated in common stock share equivalents. The strike price of each stock appreciation right is determined by the Compensation Committee, and shall in no event be less than 100% of the fair market value of the stock subject to the stock appreciation right at the time of grant. In general, the term of the stock appreciation rights granted under the 2009 Plan may not exceed ten years. The Compensation Committee may also impose restrictions or conditions upon the vesting of stock appreciation rights that it deems appropriate. Stock appreciation rights may be paid in Omnicell common stock, in cash, in any combination of the two, or any other form of legal consideration approved by the Compensation Committee and contained in the stock appreciation right agreement. Stock Appreciation Rights shall be subject to the same conditions upon termination and restrictions on transfer as stock options under the 2009 Plan.

11


Performance Awards

        The 2009 Plan provides for the grant of two types of performance awards: performance stock awards and performance cash awards. If performance awards are granted, they will vest or be exercised based upon the attainment during a certain period of time of certain performance goals. The length of any performance period, the performance goals to be achieved during the performance period, and the measure of whether and to what degree such performance goals have been attained shall be determined by the Compensation Committee. The maximum amount to be granted to any individual in a calendar year attributable to such performance awards may not exceed 1,500,000 shares of Omnicell common stock in the case of performance stock awards, or $1,500,000 in the case of performance cash awards.

        Performance goals under the 2009 Plan are determined by the Board or the Compensation Committee, based on any one or more performance criteria, including but not limited to: (i) earnings (including earnings per share and net earnings); (ii) earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation; (iii) earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization; (iv) total stockholder return; (v) return on equity or average stockholder's equity; (vi) return on assets, investment, or capital employed; (vii) stock price; (viii) margin (including gross margin); (ix) income (before or after taxes); (x) operating income; (xi) operating income after taxes; (xii) pre-tax profit; (xiii) operating cash flow; (xiv) sales, backlog or revenue targets; (xv) increases in revenue or product revenue; (xvi) expenses and cost reduction, or other budgetary goals; (xvii) improvement in or attainment of working capital levels; (xiii) economic value added (or an equivalent metric); (xix) market share; (xx) cash flow; (xxi) cash flow per share; (xxii) share price performance; (xxiii) debt reduction; (xxiv) implementation or completion of projects or processes; (xxv) customer satisfaction, service, or personal visitations; (xxvi) stockholders' equity; (xxvii) capital expenditures; (xxiii) debt levels; (xxix) operating profit or net operating profit; (xxx) workforce diversity; (xxxi) growth of net income or operating income; (xxxii) billings; (xxxiii) completion of strategic, business, development, financial, employee or integration plan (or equivalent type of plan); (xxxiv) manufacturing, production, research and development, product launch or product objective goals; (xxxv) litigation, arbitration or other conflict achievements or resolutions; (xxxvi) hiring or reduction in headcount; (xxxvii) timely completion of internal and external analysis, or audits; (xxxviii) completion of performance goals by direct reports; and (xxxix) to the extent that an Award is not intended to comply with Section 162(m) of the Code, other measures of performance selected by the Board.

Other Stock Awards

        Other forms of stock awards valued in whole or in part with reference to Omnicell common stock may be granted either alone or in addition to other stock awards under the 2009 Plan. The Compensation Committee has sole and complete authority to determine the persons to whom and the time or times at which such other stock awards will be granted, the number of shares of Omnicell common stock to be granted and all other conditions of such other stock awards. Other forms of stock awards may be subject to vesting in accordance with a vesting schedule to be determined by the Compensation Committee.

Changes to Capital Structure

        In the event that there is a specified type of change in our capital structure not involving the receipt of consideration by the Company, such as a stock split or stock dividend, the class and number of shares reserved under the 2009 Plan (including share limits) and the class and number of shares and exercise price or strike price, if applicable, of all outstanding stock awards will be appropriately adjusted.

12


Corporate Transactions

        In the event of a corporate transaction, unless otherwise provided in a written agreement between the Company or any of its affiliate and the holder of the stock award, or expressly provided by the Board or the Compensation Committee at the time of grant of a stock award, in the event of a corporate transaction (as specified in the 2009 Plan and described below), all outstanding stock awards under the 2009 Plan shall be assumed, continued or substituted for by any surviving or acquiring entity (or its parent company). If the surviving or acquiring entity (or its parent company) elects not to assume, continue or substitute for such stock awards, then (i) with respect to any such stock awards that are held by individuals whose continuous service with us or an affiliate has not terminated prior to the effective date of the corporate transaction, the vesting and exercisability provisions of such stock awards will be accelerated in full and such awards will terminate if not exercised prior to the effective date of the corporate transaction, and (ii) with respect to any stock awards that are held by individuals whose continuous service with the Company or an affiliate of the Company has terminated prior to the effective date of the corporate transaction, the vesting and exercisability provisions of such stock awards will not be accelerated and such awards will terminate if not exercised prior to the effective date of the corporate transaction (except that any reacquisition or repurchase rights held by the Company with respect to such stock awards shall not terminate and may continued to be exercised notwithstanding the corporate transaction). In the event a stock award will terminate if not exercised, the Board or the Compensation Committee may provide, in its sole discretion, that the holder of such stock award may not exercise such stock award but will receive a payment equal to the excess of the value of the property the holder would have received upon exercise over any exercise price.

        A stock award may be subject to additional acceleration of vesting and exercisability upon or after a change in control, as provided in the stock award agreement or in any other written agreement between the Company or any affiliate of the Company and the participant, but in the absence of such provision, no acceleration shall occur.

Plan Amendments

        The Compensation Committee has the authority to amend or terminate the 2009 Plan. However, no amendment or termination of the 2009 Plan will adversely affect any rights under awards already granted to a participant unless agreed to by the affected participant. The Company will obtain stockholder approval of any amendment to the 2009 Plan as required by applicable law.

Plan Termination

        Unless sooner terminated by the Board or the Compensation Committee, the 2009 Plan shall automatically terminate on March 4, 2019.

U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences

        The information set forth below is a summary only and does not purport to be complete. The information is based upon current federal income tax rules and therefore is subject to change when those rules change. Because the tax consequences to any recipient may depend on his or her particular situation, each recipient should consult the recipient's tax adviser regarding the federal, state, local, and other tax consequences of the grant or exercise of an award or the disposition of stock acquired as a result of an award. The 2009 Plan is not qualified under the provisions of Section 401(a) of the Code, and is not subject to any of the provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. The Company's ability to realize the benefit of any tax deductions described below depends on its generation of taxable income.

13


Nonstatutory Stock Options

        Generally, there is no taxation upon the grant of a NSO where the option is granted with an exercise price equal to the fair market value of the underlying stock on the grant date. On exercise, an optionee will recognize ordinary income equal to the excess, if any, of the fair market value on the date of exercise of the stock over the exercise price. If the optionee is employed by us or one of our affiliates, that income will be subject to withholding tax. The optionee's tax basis in those shares will be equal to their fair market value on the date of exercise of the option, and the optionee's capital gain holding period for those shares will begin on that date.

        Subject to the requirement of reasonableness, the provisions of Section 162(m) of the Code and the satisfaction of a tax reporting obligation, we will generally be entitled to a tax deduction equal to the taxable ordinary income realized by the optionee.

Incentive Stock Options

        The 2009 Plan provides for the grant of stock options that qualify as "incentive stock options," as defined in Section 422 of the Code. Under the Code, an optionee generally is not subject to ordinary income tax upon the grant or exercise of an ISO. If the optionee holds a share received on exercise of an ISO for more than two years from the date the option was granted and more than one year from the date the option was exercised, which is referred to as the required holding period, the difference, if any, between the amount realized on a sale or other taxable disposition of that share and the holder's tax basis in that share will be long-term capital gain or loss.

        If, however, an optionee disposes of a share acquired on exercise of an ISO before the end of the required holding period, which is referred to as a disqualifying disposition, the optionee generally will recognize ordinary income in the year of the disqualifying disposition equal to the excess, if any, of the fair market value of the share on the date the ISO was exercised over the exercise price. However, if the sales proceeds are less than the fair market value of the share on the date of exercise of the option, the amount of ordinary income recognized by the optionee will not exceed the gain, if any, realized on the sale. If the amount realized on a disqualifying disposition exceeds the fair market value of the share on the date of exercise of the option, that excess will be short-term or long-term capital gain, depending on whether the holding period for the share exceeds one year.

        For purposes of the alternative minimum tax, the amount by which the fair market value of a share of stock acquired on exercise of an ISO exceeds the exercise price of that option generally will be an adjustment included in the optionee's alternative minimum taxable income for the year in which the option is exercised. In computing alternative minimum taxable income, the tax basis of a share acquired on exercise of an ISO is increased by the amount of the adjustment taken into account with respect to that share for alternative minimum tax purposes in the year the option is exercised.

        Omnicell is not allowed an income tax deduction with respect to the grant or exercise of an ISO or the disposition of a share acquired on exercise of an ISO after the required holding period. If there is a disqualifying disposition of a share, however, Omnicell is allowed a deduction in an amount equal to the ordinary income includible in income by the optionee, subject to Section 162(m) of the Code and provided that amount constitutes an ordinary and necessary business expense for the Company and is reasonable in amount, and either the employee includes that amount in income or the Company timely satisfies its reporting requirements with respect to that amount.

Restricted Stock Awards

        Generally, the recipient of a restricted stock award will recognize ordinary compensation income at the time the stock is received equal to the excess, if any, of the fair market value of the stock received over any amount paid by the recipient in exchange for the stock. If, however, the stock is not vested

14



when it is received (for example, if the employee is required to work for a period of time in order to have the right to sell the stock), the recipient generally will not recognize income until the stock becomes vested, at which time the recipient will recognize ordinary compensation income equal to the excess, if any, of the fair market value of the stock on the date it becomes vested over any amount paid by the recipient in exchange for the stock. A recipient may, however, file an election with the Internal Revenue Service, within 30 days of his or her receipt of the stock award, to recognize ordinary compensation income, as of the date the recipient receives the award, equal to the excess, if any, of the fair market value of the stock on the date the award is granted over any amount paid by the recipient in exchange for the stock.

        The recipient's basis for the determination of gain or loss upon the subsequent disposition of shares acquired from stock awards will be the amount paid for such shares plus any ordinary income recognized either when the stock is received or when the stock becomes vested.

        Subject to the requirement of reasonableness, the provisions of Section 162(m) of the Code and the satisfaction of a tax reporting obligation, Omnicell will generally be entitled to a tax deduction equal to the taxable ordinary income realized by the recipient of the stock award.

Restricted Stock Units

        Generally, the recipient of a stock unit structured to conform to the requirements of Section 409A of the Code or an exception to Section 409A of the Code will recognize ordinary compensation income at the time the stock is delivered equal to the excess, if any, of the fair market value of the shares of Omnicell common stock received over any amount paid by the recipient in exchange for the shares of Omnicell common stock. To conform to the requirements of Section 409A of the Code, the shares of Omnicell common stock subject to a stock unit award may generally only be delivered upon one of the following events: a fixed calendar date (or dates), separation from service, death, disability or a change in control. If delivery occurs on another date, unless the stock units otherwise comply with or qualify for an exception to the requirements of Section 409A of the Code, in addition to the tax treatment described above, the recipient will owe an additional 20% federal tax and interest on any taxes owed.

        The recipient's basis for the determination of gain or loss upon the subsequent disposition of shares acquired from stock units, will be the amount paid for such shares plus any ordinary income recognized when the stock is delivered.

        Subject to the requirement of reasonableness, the provisions of Section 162(m) of the Code and the satisfaction of a tax reporting obligation, we will generally be entitled to a tax deduction equal to the taxable ordinary income realized by the recipient of the stock award.

Stock Appreciation Rights

        The Company may grant under the 2009 Plan stock appreciation rights separate from any other award or in tandem with other awards under the 2009 Plan.

        Where the rights are granted with a strike price equal to the fair market value of the underlying stock on the grant date and where the recipient may only receive the appreciation inherent in the stock appreciation rights in shares of Omnicell common stock, the recipient will recognize ordinary compensation income equal to the fair market value of the stock received upon such exercise. If the recipient may receive the appreciation inherent in the stock appreciation rights in cash or other property and the stock appreciation right has been structured to conform to the requirements of Section 409A of the Code, then the cash will be taxable as ordinary compensation income to the recipient at the time that the cash is received.

15


        Subject to the requirement of reasonableness, the provisions of Section 162(m) of the Code, and the satisfaction of a tax reporting obligation, Omnicell will generally be entitled to a tax deduction equal to the taxable ordinary income realized by the recipient of the stock appreciation right.

Section 162 Limitations

        Compensation of persons who are "covered employees" of the Company is subject to the tax deduction limits of Section 162(m) of the Code. Awards that qualify as "performance-based compensation" are exempt from Section 162(m), thereby permitting us to claim the full federal tax deduction otherwise allowed for such compensation. The 2009 Plan is intended to enable the Committee to grant awards that will be exempt from the deduction limits of Section 162(m).

New Plan Benefits

        The Company cannot currently determine the benefits or number of shares subject to awards that may be granted in the future to executive officers, directors, and employees under the 2009 Plan. We do not presently have any current plans, proposals or arrangements, written or otherwise, to issue any of the newly available authorized shares under the 2009 Plan. The table below sets forth information about awards granted under our 2009 Plan to the named executive officers, all current executive officers as a group, all non-employee directors as a group, and all non-executive employees and consultants as a group in 2009. On November 8, 2010, the closing price of Omnicell common stock as reported on the NASDAQ Global Market was $13.83 per share.

This table is based upon information supplied by officers, directors and principal stockholders and Schedules 13D and 13G filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). Unless otherwise indicated in the footnotes to this table and subject to community property laws where applicable, the Company believes that each of the stockholders named in this table has sole voting and investment power with respect to the shares indicated as beneficially owned. Applicable percentages are based on 32,945,008 shares outstanding on October 15, 2010, adjusted as required by rules promulgated by the SEC. Unless otherwise indicated, the address of each of the

17


    individuals and entities listed below is c/o Omnicell, Inc., 1201 Charleston Road, Mountain View, California 94043.

On December 1, 2009, BlackRock, Inc. ("BlackRock") completed its acquisition of Barclays Global Investors, NA and certain of its affiliates (Barclays Global Investors, NA and such affiliates are collectively referred to as the "BGI Entities").

(3)
Wellington Management Company, LLC ("Wellington Management"), in its capacity as investment advisor, has shared voting and investment power with respect 2,432,808 shares of stock which are held of record by clients of Wellington Management.

WRI is a broker- dealer and underwriting subsidiary of Waddell & Reed Financial Services, Inc., a parent holding company ("WRFSI"). In turn, WRFSI is a subsidiary of WDR, a publicly traded company. The investment advisory contracts grant IICO and WRIMCO all investment and/or voting power over securities owned by such advisory clients. The investment sub-advisory contracts grant IICO and WRIMCO investment power over securities owned by such sub-advisory clients and, in most cases, voting power. Any investment restriction of a sub-advisory contract does not restrict investment discretion or power in a material manner. Therefore, IICO and/or WRIMCO may be deemed the beneficial owner of the securities covered by this table.

EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

COMPENSATION DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

        This Compensation Discussion and Analysis provides information regarding compensation paid to our President and Chief Executive Officer, our Chief Financial Officer, and our three other most highly compensated executive officers, or the Named Executive Officers, as of December 31, 2009. These individuals are:

        The compensation programs described herein are available to all of Omnicell's executive officers.

Overview

        Our executive compensation program is designed to provide our executive officers incentives and rewards, while effectively balancing the short-term and long-term interests of our stockholders with our ability to attract and retain talented executives. The Compensation Committee of our Board of Directors (the "Committee") has the primary responsibility for establishing our executive compensation philosophy and determining the specific components and levels of each executive's compensation. Our executive compensation program is based on four guiding principles, as set forth by the Committee. We have created a compensation program that combines short-term and long-term components, cash and equity and fixed and contingent payments, in the proportions we believe achieve these four guiding principles:

        An important element of our compensation philosophy is to provide executives with compensation packages that are competitive with compensation packages for executives in medical supply and technology companies of similar size and stage of development in order to attract dynamic and innovative executives to lead our strategic initiatives. As such, the Committee utilizes and relies significantly on a benchmarking analysis when determining the size, components and mix of the executive officers' compensation elements.

        Our executive officers' compensation consists of three principal components: base salary, a performance-based cash bonus and long-term equity incentive compensation. The cash compensation components are primarily designed to provide a predictable level of financial stability and reward the achievement of short-term goals. The equity compensation component is primarily designed to incentivize and retain our executives, and to reward the achievement of our long-term financial success. The Committee utilizes a benchmarking analysis when determining total cash compensation, allocating

20



cash compensation between base salary and performance-based bonus, and in awarding long-term equity compensation.

Role of the Compensation Committee

        Our Board of Directors has delegated to the Committee the responsibility for developing our compensation philosophy, establishing our executive compensation program and overseeing equity awards under our equity incentive plans. On an annual basis, the Committee approves the individual compensation packages for each of our executive officers. Although the Committee maintains ultimate authority over our executive officers' compensation, the Committee considers the input and evaluations of our President and Chief Executive Officer, Randall A. Lipps, as it relates to executive officers other than Mr. Lipps. In conjunction with the Committee's annual review, Mr. Lipps develops cash and equity compensation proposals for each executive to present to the Committee for discussion and approval. Mr. Lipps does not participate in the final determination of his own compensation.

Benchmarking / Compensation Consultant

        As in prior years, the Committee engaged the services of Pearl Meyer & Partners ("Pearl Meyer") in late 2008 and again in late 2009 to serve as an independent advisor to the Committee to assist in reviewing the compensation of the Company's executive officers, including identifying companies for competitive analysis and benchmarking. As part of its engagements, Pearl Meyer worked closely with the Committee to identify comparable peer companies, provided the Committee with a report summarizing a comparison of our total compensation with such peer companies and provided an assessment of the specific elements of our compensation components in relation to the peer companies (the "Pearl Meyer Report"). The Committee believes benchmarking of executive compensation is crucial to maintaining compensation levels competitive with other leading technology companies with which we compete for personnel. Additionally, benchmarking provides guideposts, which the Committee uses to determine the size, mix and components of executive compensation.

        Most of our direct industry competitors are significantly larger than we are, and as a result, historically it has been and continues to be challenging to find appropriately-sized industry competitors for comparison. Therefore, the Committee and Pearl Meyer have developed a group of comparable publicly-traded companies based on such factors as revenue, market capitalization and, to the extent possible, industry similarity, that we believe provides a meaningful cross-section from which to benchmark executive compensation. The Committee and Pearl Meyer also, to the extent possible, have included companies in the peer group with which Omnicell believes that it may compete for personnel. This peer group focuses on three industry subcategories that are representative of portions of our business: the healthcare information management software industry, the medical equipment and supplies industry, and the supply chain management and logistics software and manufacturing industry. The Committee and Pearl Meyer strive to maintain a consistent peer group year over year for comparability of competitive analysis; however, on a yearly basis the peer group is reviewed and refined to take into consideration comparability of financial performance relative to Omnicell, as well as the acquisition or other fundamental changes in the peer companies operating business. For all compensation decisions in 2009, the Committee utilized the Pearl Meyer Report prepared in late 2008 and, with respect to the long-term equity compensation awards made in February 2010, the Committee utilized the Pearl Meyer Report prepared in late 2009.

Elements of Compensation and 2009 Determinations

        Our executive compensation program consists of three principal components: a base salary and performance-based cash bonus plan (together, total cash compensation) and long-term equity incentive compensation. We also provide our executive officers with certain other benefits including severance and change-of-control benefits and the ability to participate in our 401(k) plan and other employee benefit plans with all other eligible employees. The philosophy underlying each of the components of compensation and the specific factors weighing on the compensation determinations for 2009 are discussed in each section below.

        Overview.     The cash component of our executive compensation program serves a two-fold purpose. Base salaries are intended to provide financial stability, predictability and security of compensation for our executive officers for fulfilling their core job responsibilities, while the performance-based cash bonus plan is intended to incentivize and reward the achievement of predetermined corporate and individual short-term objectives. The Committee's long-term objective has been and continues to be for each executive officer to be able to achieve approximately the 75 th  percentile in total cash compensation, assuming achievement of each of his/her performance objectives resulting in payment in full of the executive's total performance-based cash bonus, and for base salary compensation to be at the 50 th  percentile for comparable positions identified in the Pearl Meyer Report. In determining the level of base salary and the potential maximum performance-based bonus for each executive officer, the Committee analyzes the comparable total cash compensation metric of the Pearl Meyer Report for each executive and sets the executive's total cash compensation with the goal of moving each executive toward the objective percentile in a responsible and measured manner. The Committee also considers management's financial forecasts for the upcoming fiscal year and works to establish an aggregate compensation scheme that fits within the Company's budgetary model.

        To determine the level of each component of an executive's total cash compensation, the Committee uses the prior year's base salary as the starting point, and then looks to the applicable base salary metric in the Pearl Meyer Report to ascertain the percentile that the prior year's salary represents. The Committee then sets an approximate base salary for each executive based on the targeted percentile for that executive.

        Once an appropriate base salary determination is made the Committee allocates the difference between the executive's new base salary and targeted total cash compensation as the size of the executive's maximum potential performance-based bonus. The Committee then translates the maximum potential performance-based bonus into a percentage of the executive officer's base salary and makes adjustments to the base salary and bonus percentage from there.

        Adjustments in cash compensation derived from base salary versus performance-based cash bonus are based on such factors as an executive's historical base salary, an executive's duties and responsibilities, and his or her position in the Company, as well as competitive pay practices for comparable positions identified in the Pearl Meyer Report. In 2009, in light of the severity of the

22



economic downturn, the Committee also considered anticipated declines in the financial forecast, overall market conditions and the reduction in the Company's workforce and the impact of its compensation decisions on the Company's employees in light thereof.

        2009 Base Salary and Total Cash Compensation Determination.     For the first quarter of 2009, the Named Executive Officers' (other than Ms. Ortigas-Wedekind) received their respective base salaries set in 2008. Ms. Ortigas-Wedekind was hired in January 2009, and her base salary was set at a level approximately equal to the other executive officers (other than the three most highly compensated executives) current base salaries. In February 2009, the Committee instituted approximately a 10% reduction in the then-current base salaries for each of Messrs. Lipps, Seim and Drew for the final three quarters of 2009 (such salaries automatically reverted to 2008 levels on January 1, 2010) and froze the salaries of the remaining executive officers at their 2008 levels (or in the case of Ms. Ortigas-Wedekind, at the level set at the time of her hire). The Committee anticipated that market conditions would have a negative impact on the salary levels of the executives in companies identified in the Pearl Meyer report, and thereby determined that a reduction of the salaries of our three most highly compensated executives, and the institution of a salary freeze for the remaining executives was prudent as a cost control measure in light of the severe economic downturn and continued decrease in overall capital spending, as well as supporting employee morale following the Company's reduction in force. The Committee considered the relative percentiles of the base salaries in the Pearl Meyer Report, on a pre-reduction basis for Mr. Lipps, Mr. Seim and Mr. Drew, but chose to delay movement towards its long-term objective of providing base salaries at approximately the 50 th  percentile of the Company's peer group in light of the economic conditions and other factors described herein.

        In determining total cash compensation for 2009, the Committee acknowledged that the salary reductions and/or salary freezes would slow or, in some cases, reverse the progress of moving executive compensation levels toward the 50 th  percentile goal of base salary, and as a result it would also slow or reverse the progress of moving total cash compensation to the 75 th  percentile, in each case as compared to the peer group. In an effort to balance the impact of the reduction and/or salary freeze, the Committee increased the cash bonus amount available to each executive derived as a percentage of his/her quarterly salary thereby maintaining total cash compensation at approximately the same level as 2008. The Committee determined that in light of the economic challenges it was prudent to place greater emphasis on the incentive component of the cash compensation for all executives.

        The following table sets forth the 2009 base salaries (annualized based on the rate set at April 1, 2009), the actual percentage the base salary represents of total target cash compensation and the

2009 targeted total cash compensation refers to an executive officer's annualized salary and incentive target at the rate effective April 1, 2009, assuming achievement of 100% of an executive officer's Individual Targets and the achievement of the Corporate Targets.

(2)
2008 targeted total cash compensation refers to an executive officer's annualized salary and incentive target at the rate effective April 1, 2008, assuming achievement of 100% of an executive officer's Individual Targets and the achievement of the Corporate Targets.

        Performance-Based Bonus.     The second component of cash compensation for our executive officers is a quarterly performance-based bonus, which is intended to be a substantial component of our executives' cash compensation. The size of the potential maximum bonus is derived from the difference between the executive's targeted total compensation and his/her base salary. For 2009, the Committee weighted a greater percentage of the executive officer's total cash compensation toward the performance-based component of total compensation relative to 2008. To this end for 2009, the Committee established the 2009 Executive Bonus Plan (the "2009 Bonus Plan").

        Under the 2009 Bonus Plan, the Company had to meet certain threshold financial performance criteria for an executive to earn a bonus (together, these are referred to as the "Corporate Targets"). For 2009, the Corporate Targets included two quarterly performance criteria: (i) a quarterly revenue target (the "Revenue Target") and (ii) quarterly profit amount, which is set at the minimum profit required to meet the cash equivalent of that quarter's desired earnings per share target (the "Profit Target"). Under both the 2008 and 2009 Bonus Plans, the Committee had the ability to establish one or more additional objectives, or discretionary targets, on a quarterly basis but opted to exercise this discretion in only the fourth quarter of 2009.

        In 2008, the Committee addressed the importance of securing customer contracts early in the year in order to adequately meet the corporate metrics expected by our stockholders, and as such, set discretionary targets to incentivize the early completion of such contracts. In 2009, the Committee determined that the 2009 sales plan adequately addressed the importance of securing customer contracts early in the year and opted not to utilize similar discretionary targets in the first three quarters of 2009. In the fourth quarter of 2009, the Committee implemented a discretionary target that would have the effect of reducing the executive officers' actual performance-based bonuses in the fourth quarter of 2009 by 50% if the Company did not achieve a year-end backlog amount that was at least $109.0 million, which was $1.0 million less than the Company forecasted backlog at the beginning of 2009. The Company met this discretionary target in the fourth quarter of 2009.

        Commensurate with our philosophy of conditioning performance-based cash compensation on corporate performance, the Committee required the achievement of the Revenue Target and Profit

25



Target as a condition to our executive officers receiving any portion of their respective performance-based bonus for the quarter. If the Revenue Target and Profit Target were achieved, an executive was eligible to receive a cash bonus amount derived as a percentage of his/her quarterly salary, to be determined based on the executive's achievement of certain individual objectives ("Individual Targets"). If the Corporate Targets and all of a Participant's Individual Targets were achieved, the executive received 100% of his/her eligible cash bonus amount (the "Incentive Target").

        The Committee determined achievement of the Revenue Target, against the revenue reported on a GAAP basis, and determined achievement of the Profit Target against non-GAAP net income, which excludes share-based compensation expenses pursuant to Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 718 "Stock Compensation" ("ASC Topic 718"), and other items that the Committee determined were unusual, non-recurring and not reflective of normal operations. Our quarterly unaudited financial statements for 2009 were the basis for measuring the level of revenue and earnings per share to determine the achievement of the Revenue Target and Profit Target, respectively.

        For 2009, the Committee retained the revised structure of the performance-based bonus plan implemented in 2008, whereby achievement of the Revenue Target and Profit Target was the threshold performance gate to any bonus, allocating 100% of an executive's cash bonus to the achievement of his/her Individual Targets. The Committee determined that implementation of the discretionary target in the fourth quarter of 2009 placed adequate emphasis on the year-end backlog amount. Prior to 2008, the achievement in full of the Corporate Targets provided each executive with 50% of his/her eligible cash bonus under the performance-based bonus plan then in effect. The Committee continues to feel that the "threshold performance gate" structure better emphasizes its desire to motivate individual performance, while retaining the Company's financial performance as paramount and the primary focus of each executive's efforts.

        In 2009, the Committee established Incentive Targets based on the executive's targeted total cash compensation less base salary, and then translated this number into a percentage of salary. Slight adjustments were made to the percentages based on an executive's level of compensation in relation to competitive pay practices for comparable positions identified in the Pearl Meyer Report and the Company's budgetary constraints.

        The following table sets forth the 2009 Incentive Target and the percentage of salary and total cash compensation represented by the 2009 Incentive Target:

    2009 Targets and Bonus Determinations.

        Corporate Targets.     The Committee established the Revenue Target and Profit Target on a quarterly basis, and such targets were intended to incent the executive officers to achieve results that were consistent with the Company's board-approved financial plan. The actual amount of each target was set by the Committee based on a combination of the input of management, historical quarterly results, the Company's desired growth, financial forecasts and analyst expectations. The following table sets forth the quarterly Corporate Targets for 2009 (all figures are in thousands, except per share amounts):

(1)
The Profit Target represented values based on non-GAAP net income rounded to the nearest whole cent, excluding share-based compensation expenses pursuant to ASC Topic 718 and other items that the Committee determined were unusual and not reflective of normal operations.

        For 2009, the Corporate Targets were met in each quarter and as a result our executives were eligible to receive a bonus in each quarter, based on the achievement of their Individual Targets.

        Individual Targets.     For most Named Executive Officers in 2009, the establishment of the Individual Targets and the determinations of achievement were made by the Committee. With respect to Mr. Johnston's Individual Targets, Mr. Seim, our Chief Financial Officer, established the targets and determined achievement in the first two quarters of 2009, and thereafter the determinations were made by the Committee. The Individual Targets are designed to encourage progress in, and create a strong incentive for the executive to excel in areas that are primarily within their control, while emphasizing the importance of our success by requiring achievement of the Corporate Targets before bonus eligibility.

        In 2009, the quarterly Individual Targets for our executive officers, other than Mr. Lipps, included objectives in the following areas:

    Sales Objectives—sales margins, bookings, sales to existing customers, numbers of sales visits and other internal financial measurements;

    Operating Objectives—implementation of information technology infrastructure, conducting training, ethics and other curriculum courses, completion of objectives by those directly reporting to the officer and improvement of internal departmental processes; and

    Strategic Objectives—development of short and long-term roadmaps, and evaluation of possible acquisition targets, strategic relationships and product lines.

        On a quarterly basis the executives, other than Mr. Lipps, generally have between six and nine Individual Targets, and generally 30 to 35 on an annual basis, relating to a variety of objectives, which are approved by the Committee. Each Individual Target is given a percentage weighting such that achievement of all Individual Targets corresponds to 100% achievement of the Incentive Target. For executives other than Mr. Lipps, each Individual Target generally is weighted between 5% and 25% of that quarter's total Incentive Target.

        With respect to Mr. Lipps, 75% of his potential bonus in each quarter was conditioned on his direct reports achievement of each of their Individual Targets. The Committee structured Mr. Lipps' performance bonus in this manner so as to place a significant emphasis on effectively managing and

27


leading the executive team, while maintaining the importance of the Company's financial success as the threshold performance gate. The remaining portion of Mr. Lipps' Individual Targets included operating and/or strategic objectives in the same areas as those set for other Named Executive Officers.

        The following table sets forth the percentages of the Individual Targets achieved in each quarter of 2009, as well as the actual cash bonus earned by each Named Executive Officer based on achievement of the Individual Targets in each quarter of 2009:

    Equity Compensation .

        Overview.     Long-term equity-based compensation is intended to incentivize and retain our executive officers through the use of time-based vesting and tying our long-term financial performance to the executive officer's financial success. We believe that both time-based vesting and shared financial success are long-term incentives that motivate our executive officers to grow revenues and earnings, enhance stockholder value and align the interests of our stockholders and executives over the long-term. Equity-based compensation is awarded to our executive officers in the form of stock option grants and restricted stock units, both of which carry service-based vesting conditions.

        Upon commencement of employment, executives are awarded initial equity grants carrying a service-based vesting condition, with 25% of the shares generally vesting one year from the vesting commencement date and the remaining shares vesting in equal monthly installments over the following 36 months. On an annual basis, the Committee makes an assessment as to the size and type of additional equity awards, if any, to be given to each executive officer. Stock options are intended to provide the most substantial incentive to our executive officers to improve company performance and to positively affect stock value, while restricted stock units provide a reduction to earnings dilution and an element of long-term incentive that has greater retention value in a flat or down market. Annual awards generally vest over 4 years (with 25% of the shares vesting on the anniversary of the vesting commencement date and the remainder on a monthly basis thereafter) in the case of stock options, and

29



semi-annually over 48 months in the case of restricted stock units. The size of the initial grant and the annual grants are determined by the Committee based upon factors including:

    competitive equity compensation practices for comparable positions identified in the Pearl Meyer Report;

    the executive's level of responsibility and duties;

    comparison to other executive officers;

    individual executive officer performance;

    corporate performance;

    the executive's prior experience, experience within his or her specific job and breadth of knowledge; and

    corporate objectives for share-based compensation charges and earnings dilution.

        On an annual basis, management and the Committee establish a maximum aggregate share-based compensation expense for the executive awards, taking into consideration anticipated share-based compensation expenses for equity grants to other employees. In determining equity compensation for the executive officers, the Committee reviews the equity compensation grants over a three-year period against a three-year rolling benchmark identified in the Pearl Meyer Report with an objective of making awards at the 50 th  percentile (on an option equivalent basis) of the three-year period. The Committee balances this percentile objective with its commitment to stay within management's share-based expense objective in finalizing the aggregate and individual awards. Beyond reviewing the three-year award totals, the Committee does not take into consideration an executive's aggregate equity holdings or equity carrying value in determining yearly long-term equity incentive awards.

        In addition to the factors discussed above, with respect to the size of the awards on a year over year basis, the Committee also takes into consideration the following factors when determining the size and mix of the equity grants:

    the combined size of the awards over a three-year period;

    the effect of the awards on dilution;

    our total equity compensation costs relative to total expenses; and

    competitive equity compensation practices for comparable positions identified in the Pearl Meyer Report.

        February 2009 Equity Awards.     In February 2009, the Committee granted equity awards to our executive officers, taking into consideration, to the extent applicable, corporate performance and individual contributions in 2008 as well as individual long-term retention value and the Committee's desire to emphasize the incentive aspect of the equity awards. The Committee set a ratio of 25% restricted stock units and 75% stock options for executive officers, as measured by the value of the award as prescribed by ASC Topic 718, other than for Ms. Ortigas-Wedekind. This ratio of restricted stock units to stock options was set based on the potential share-based compensation expense and the targeted award size, as well as the retention and incentive aspects of each type of award. The Committee's primary reason for weighting the awards more heavily towards stock options was to place an increased emphasis on the incentive aspect of stock options over the retention value of restricted stock awards. The Committee did review, assess and take into consideration competitive equity compensation practices for comparable positions identified in the Pearl Meyer Report, however, in light of the Committee's desire to maintain share-based compensation expense within the management's established objective, the Committee set a benchmark percentile between the 40 th  and 45 th  percentile (on an option-equivalent basis) for the executive officers.

30


        Ms. Ortigas-Wedekind was granted a new-hire award of 60,000 stock options. The Committee designed the award to be a competitive grant intended to induce her to accept the position of Vice President of Marketing and determined the size of the grant by reviewing awards to comparable level executives at Omnicell, the fair value of the award on a dollar basis and in reliance on its experience with new hire awards. The allocation of the award as 100% stock options, with no restricted stock component, was intended to maximize the alignment of the success of her marketing activities and the success of Company performance with her long-term compensation.

        In addition, in September 2009 Ms. Ortigas-Wedekind was granted an award of 3,000 restricted stock units. The Committee granted the award in recognition of the increased level of responsibility Ms. Ortigas-Wedekind had assumed in connection with a realignment of the Company's engineering department under her supervision.

        The following table sets forth the Committee's equity-based awards granted under the 1999 Equity Incentive Plan (1) for our Named Executive Officers in February 2009 (other than with respect to Ms. Ortigas-Wedekind):

(1)
Effective May 2009 following approval by our stockholders at the 2009 Annual Meeting, the 2009 Equity Incentive Plan was adopted as a successor to the 1999 Equity Incentive Plan. Following the 2009 Annual Meeting, no further awards were granted pursuant to the 1999 Equity Incentive Plan.

(2)
Stock options were granted pursuant to the 1999 Equity Incentive Plan. The exercise price of each of the stock option grant is equal to $7.94, which was the closing price of our common stock on the date of grant, February 4, 2009, as reported on The NASDAQ Global Market. The option vests as to 25% of the shares subject to the grant on the first anniversary of the vesting commencement date of the grant, January 1, 2009, with the remainder of the shares vesting in equal monthly installments over the following 36 months, other than with respect to Ms. Ortigas-Wedekind's stock option award. Vesting is contingent upon continued service.

(3)
Restricted stock units were granted pursuant to the 1999 Stock Plan. The right to receive the shares underlying the unit grant vest as to 1/8th of the shares in equal semi-annual installments over four years from the vesting commencement date of such grants, January 1, 2009. Vesting is contingent upon continued service.

(4)
Ms. Ortigas-Wedekind joined the Company on January 12, 2009. The stock option grant represents Ms. Ortigas-Wedekind's initial equity award in connection with her employment. The option vests as to 25% of the shares subject to the grant on the first anniversary of the vesting commencement date of the grant, her start date, with the remainder of the shares vesting in equal monthly installments over the following 36 months. Vesting is contingent upon her continued service.

(5)
The restricted stock units were granted pursuant to the 2009 Stock Plan. The right to receive the shares underlying the unit grant vest as to 1/8th of the shares in equal semi-annual installments over four years from the vesting commencement date of such grants, September 2, 2009. Vesting is contingent upon continued service.

31


        February 2010 Equity Awards.     In February 2010, the Committee granted equity awards to our executive officers taking into consideration, to the extent applicable, corporate performance and individual contributions in 2009. The Committee set a ratio of 50% restricted stock units and 50% stock options for executive officers, as measured by the value of the award as prescribed by ASC Topic 718. This ratio of restricted stock units to stock options was set based on the potential share-based compensation expense and the targeted award size, as well as the retention and incentive aspects of each type of award. The Committee's primary reason for altering the weighting of the awards from the February 2009 ratio, less heavily towards stock options was to place an increased emphasis on the retention value of restricted stock awards while continuing to maintain the incentive aspect of stock options. The Committee did review, assess and take into consideration competitive equity compensation practices for comparable positions identified in the Pearl Meyer Report. However, in light of the Committee's desire to maintain share-based compensation expense within the management's established objective, the Committee set a benchmark percentile between the 30 th  and 45 th  percentile (on an option equivalent basis) for the executive officers.

        The following table sets forth the equity-based awards granted by the Committee under the 2009 Equity Incentive Plan to our Named Executive Officers in February 2010:

Marga Ortigas-Wedekind

    40,000     20,000  

Dan S. Johnston

    25,000     12,500  

(1)
Stock options were granted pursuant to the 2009 Plan. The exercise price of each of the stock option grants is equal to $12.48, which was the closing price of our common stock on the date of grant, February 3, 2010, as reported on The NASDAQ Global Market. The option vests as to 25% of the shares subject to the grant on the first anniversary of the vesting commencement date of the grant, January 1, 2010, with the remainder vesting in equal monthly installments over the following 36 months. Vesting is contingent upon continued service.

(2)
Restricted stock units were granted pursuant to the 2009 Plan. The right to receive the shares underlying the unit grant vest as to 1/8th of the shares in equal semi-annual installments over four years from the vesting commencement date of such grants, January 1, 2010. Vesting is contingent upon continued service.

Other Benefits

        Severance and Change of Control Benefits.     Our executive officers are entitled to certain severance and change of control benefits pursuant to our 2006 Executive Change of Control Benefit Plan and 2007 Severance Benefit Plan. The terms of the 2006 Executive Change of Control Benefit Plan and the 2007 Severance Benefit Plan are described in more detail below in the sections entitled "Severance and Change of Control Arrangements" and "Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change of Control."

        Other Benefits.     We believe that establishing a competitive benefit package consistent with companies with which we compete for employees is an important factor in attracting and retaining talented employees. Thus, we provide our executive officers with employee benefits on the same basis as offered to our full time non-executive employees, including health and dental insurance, supplemental life insurance, short- and long-term disability and a 401(k) plan.

32


        Perquisites.     The Committee believes that perquisites and other personal benefits should be modest and reasonable and consistent with our desire to enhance the executive's work effectiveness and to otherwise facilitate a balance of his or her personal and work requirement trade-offs. In 2009, certain of our executive officers were eligible for perquisites that support that philosophy. Mr. Lipps is provided a $5 million life insurance policy and is permitted to bring his spouse on up to four business trips per year at our expense. Mr. Lipps and the other executive officers are also provided allowances for tax and financial planning assistance, an annual full medical checkup and reimbursement for health club membership fees. The Committee periodically reviews the levels of perquisites and other personal benefits provided to the executive officers.

        Tax and Accounting Implications.     Our equity-based compensation policies have been impacted by ASC Topic 718. We have selected a "modified prospective" transition method using the Black-Scholes-Merton option-price method for determining and recording the fair value of share-based award compensation costs. We estimate the fair value of our employee stock awards at the date of grant using certain subjective assumptions, such as expected volatility, based on the historical market price of our stock, and the expected term of the awards, based on our historical experience of employee stock option exercises including forfeitures. Our valuation assumptions used in estimating the fair value of employee share-based awards may change in future periods. We recognize the fair value of awards over the vesting period or the requisite service period. The Committee considers the financial effect of equity compensation awards in determining both the size and type of awards its grants to our executive officers.

        Our compensation policies are also impacted by Section 162(m) of the Code, which denies us a business expense deduction to the extent that compensation paid to any of the executive officers exceeds $1 million, unless the compensation qualifies as "performance-based." The Committee considers the deductibility of compensation under Section 162(m) when setting the Named Executive Officers' compensation. We believe that compensation paid in 2009 under our 1999 Equity Incentive Plan and 2009 Equity Incentive Plan are fully deductible for federal income tax purposes. However, the Committee retains discretion to approve compensation that will not meet the requirements of Section 162(m) in order to ensure competitive levels of total compensation for executive officers.

SEVERANCE AND CHANGE OF CONTROL ARRANGEMENTS

        We believe an important part of our executive compensation package and a factor in attracting and retaining talented executives is the severance and change of control benefits we provide to our executives. In 2006, we adopted the Executive Change of Control Benefit Plan and in 2007, we adopted a Severance Benefit Plan. In addition, certain of our Named Executive Officers have individual severance and change of control agreements with the Company.

    2006 Executive Change of Control Benefit Plan

        In 2009, our executive officers were provided certain severance and change in control benefits pursuant to our 2006 Executive Change of Control Benefit Plan (the "2006 Change of Control Plan"). The 2006 Change of Control Plan provided that, in the event of (i) a change of control of Omnicell, and (ii) termination without cause or constructive termination of an officer's employment with Omnicell or its successor within 12 months of such change of control, such officer shall be entitled to receive (a) severance pay, in a lump sum, equivalent to 12 months salary at such officer's base rate of pay in effect immediately prior to such termination and (b) full acceleration of any outstanding unvested stock options granted to such officer, provided, in each case, that such officer executes Omnicell's standard waiver and release agreement.

    2007 Severance Benefit Plan

        In January 2007, the Compensation Committee adopted the Severance Benefit Plan, as amended in May 2007 (the "2007 Severance Plan") that applies to full time regular employees of Omnicell. The 2007 Severance Plan provides for the payment of certain benefits to an employee if (i) an employee's employment with us is involuntarily terminated by us without Cause (as such term is defined in the 2007 Severance Plan), or (ii) an employee's employment with us is terminated as a result of a reduction in force, or (iii) an employee is selected by the Plan Administrator (as such term is defined in the 2007 Severance Plan) in its sole discretion to receive the benefits set forth in the Plan. Employees that fit within one of the categories described above are considered "Eligible Employees" (as defined in more detail in the 2007 Severance Plan). Any executive who has executed an individually negotiated employment contract or agreement with us relating to severance benefits that is in effect on his or her termination must choose whether they wish to receive severance benefits under their individually negotiated employment contract or the 2007 Severance Plan. If they opt to receive severance benefits under their individually negotiated employment contracts, participation in the 2007 Severance Plan is superseded.

        Cash Severance Benefit —Our Executive Officers who are considered Eligible Employees under the plan are entitled to receive a cash severance benefit in a lump sum equal to 12 months of Base Salary (as such term is defined in the 2007 Severance Plan) and an additional two months of Base Salary for each five years of service to Omnicell.

        Continued Group Health Plan Benefits —In the event the Eligible Employee timely elects continued coverage of a health, dental or vision plan sponsored by us under the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 ("COBRA"), we will reimburse the Eligible Employee for the same portion of the Eligible Employee's premiums for COBRA continuation coverage (including coverage for the Eligible Employee's eligible dependents) that we paid for the Eligible Employee's active employee coverage under our group health plans, for an equal number of months as the cash severance benefit described above.

        Outplacement Assistance —Eligible Employees shall be entitled to outplacement assistance, the scope of which shall be determined by the Company in our sole discretion.

41


        We may, in our sole discretion, provide benefits in addition to those benefits set forth in the 2007 Severance Plan. In addition, we, in our sole discretion, shall have the authority to reduce an Eligible Employee's severance benefits, in whole or in part.

    Executive Severance Arrangements

        Robin G. Seim.     Pursuant to his employment agreement with us dated November 28, 2005 (the "Seim Agreement"), upon an Acquisition of the Company (as defined in the Seim Agreement) and either: (i) a termination without Cause (as defined in the Seim Agreement), (ii) the material reduction in responsibilities without Cause or (iii) the change in principle location of his responsibilities outside of Santa Clara, San Francisco or San Mateo counties, Mr. Seim will receive 12 months salary at his base rate of pay in effect immediately prior to the occurrence described above. In addition, the unvested portion of each stock option granted to Mr. Seim under our equity incentive plans shall accelerate and immediately become fully-vested and exercisable. The foregoing terms are equivalent to the terms offered to each executive officer pursuant to the 2006 Change of Control Plan described above. In the event Mr. Seim's employment is terminated by Omnicell without Cause, Mr. Seim will be entitled to receive a one-time payment equal to six months' salary calculated at his base rate of pay in effect immediately prior to termination.

        Dan S. Johnston.     Pursuant to his employment agreement with us dated October 13, 2003 (the "Johnston Agreement"), upon an Acquisition of the Company (as defined in the Johnston Agreement) and either (i) a termination without Cause (as defined in the Johnston Agreement), (ii) the material reduction in responsibilities without Cause or (iii) the change in principle location of his responsibilities outside of Santa Clara, San Francisco or San Mateo counties, Mr. Johnston will receive 12 months salary at his base rate of pay in effect immediately prior to the occurrence described above. The foregoing terms set forth in the change of control portion of his employment agreement have been superseded by the terms offered to each executive officer pursuant to the 2006 Change of Control Plan described above. In the event Mr. Johnston's employment is terminated by Omnicell without Cause, Mr. Johnston will be entitled to receive a one-time payment equal to 12 months salary calculated at his base rate of pay in effect immediately prior to termination.

Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change of Control

        The amount of compensation and benefits payable to each Named Executive Officer in various termination situations has been estimated in the table below, which describes the potential payments and benefits upon employment termination for each executive as if his or her employment had terminated as of December 31, 2009, the last business day of Omnicell's fiscal year. See "—Severance and Change of Control Arrangements" above for a description of the compensation and benefits payable to the Named Executive Officers in certain termination situations. The actual amount of

42



compensation and benefits payable in any termination event can only be determined at the time of the termination of the Named Executive Officer's employment with us.

(1)
Pursuant to the terms of the 2006 Change of Control Benefit Plan, Omnicell's executive officers receive severance pay equivalent to 12 months salary at such officer's base rate of pay in effect immediately prior to such termination.

(2)
Pursuant to the terms of the 2006 Change of Control Benefit Plan, Omnicell's executive officers receive full acceleration of any outstanding unvested stock options granted to such executive officer. The dollar amounts in this column represents the difference in the closing price of Omnicell common stock on December 31, 2009 ($11.69) with respect to the outstanding unvested option shares as of December 31, 2009, minus the exercise price of the outstanding unvested option shares.

(3)
Pursuant to the terms of the 2007 Severance Plan, in addition to the 12 months salary and COBRA premium reimbursement as severance, Mr. Lipps and Mr. Drew would each receive an additional six months of salary and COBRA reimbursement due to their tenure with us.

(4)
Pursuant to the terms of the 2007 Severance Plan, Mr. Seim and Mr. Johnston may opt to take severance under the 2007 Severance Plan or under their respective employment agreements, but not both. Because the terms of the 2007 Severance Plan are generally more advantageous than those in their individual employment agreements, the above numbers reflect Mr. Seim and Mr. Johnston opting to take severance under the 2007 Severance Plan.

(5)
Pursuant to the terms of the 2007 Severance Plan, in addition to the 12 months salary and COBRA premium reimbursement as severance, Mr. Johnston would receive an additional two months of salary and COBRA premium reimbursement due to his tenure with us.

RISK ANALYSIS OF OUR COMPENSATION PLANS

        The Compensation Committee has reviewed our compensation policies as generally applicable to our employees and believes that our policies do not encourage excessive and unnecessary risk-taking, and that the level of risk that they do encourage is not reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on the Company. The design of our compensation policies and programs encourage our employees to remain focused on both the short-and long-term goals of the Company. For example, while our cash bonus plans measure performance on an annual basis, our equity awards typically vest over a number of years, which we believe encourages our employees to focus on sustained stock price appreciation, thus limiting the potential value of excessive risk-taking. The Committee believe that the balance of long-term equity incentive, short-term cash incentive bonus and base salary appropriately balances both the short and long term performance goals of the Company without encouraging excessive risk related behavior. While the Committee regularly evaluates its compensation programs, the Committee believes that its current balance of incentives both adequately compensates its employees and does not promote excessive risk taking.

DIRECTOR COMPENSATION

        We believe it is essential for our long-term success to attract highly talented candidates for our Board of Directors. Commensurate with this philosophy, the Board compensates its non-employee directors primarily with long-term equity-based compensation and also provides each with a cash fee on a quarterly basis. In connection with the Compensation Committee's annual assessment of executive compensation, the Board empowered the Committee to review and recommend Board compensation

43



practices and levels for 2009. The Committee engaged Pearl Meyer to assist in reviewing the compensation of our non-employee directors, including providing the Board with a benchmarking analysis of our non-employee director compensation relative to the peer companies identified in the Pearl Meyer Report. As part of its engagement, Pearl Meyer provided the Committee with a report summarizing the benchmarking analysis (the "Pearl Meyer Director Compensation Report").

        After review and discussion of the Pearl Meyer Director Compensation Report, and upon recommendation by the Committee, the Board determined to leave compensation at its 2008 levels. The following is a summary of our compensation arrangement for non-employee directors in 2009 (the "Non-Employee Director Compensation Plan"):

        The table below summarizes, for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009, certain information with respect to the compensation of all non-employee directors of Omnicell. Mr. Lipps, our current Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, did not receive compensation for serving on the Board.

Changes in Director Compensation in 2010

        In February 2010 and in connection with the Compensation Committee's assessment of executive compensation, the Board empowered the Committee to engage Pearl Meyer to assist in reviewing the compensation of our non-employee directors, including providing the Board with an updated report and benchmarking analysis of our non-employee director compensation relative to the peer companies.

        After review and discussion of the Pearl Meyer Director Compensation Report, and upon recommendation by the Committee, the Board determined that the annual equity compensation for Board service was slightly higher than the targeted 75 th  percentile and the compensation paid to most of the committee chairs and committee members was lower than the targeted percentile and revised the Non-Employee Director Compensation Plan to make the levels of total compensation, and

45



individual compensation more consistent with the compensation being received by non-employee directors in the peer group. As a result of the revisions to the Non-Employee Director Compensation Plan, the total expense attributable to compensation for non-employee directors is expected to be reduced from $1,384,000 in 2009 to an estimated $1,316,000 in 2010. The amount of total cash compensation for non-employee directors is expected to remain the same as in 2009. The expense attributable to equity compensation for non-employee directors is expected to be reduced from $1,064,000 to an estimated $996,000 in 2010. The following is a summary of the changes to our Non-Employee Director Compensation Plan, effective as of the date of the 2010 annual meeting of stockholders:

    Each nonemployee member of the Board shall continue to receive cash compensation in the amount of $10,000 per quarter at the time of each quarterly Board meeting and are eligible for reimbursement for expenses incurred in attending Board and Committee meetings.

    The Initial Option Grants was changed to a restricted stock award valued at $150,000 as of the date of grant (the "Initial Restricted Stock Award"). The Initial Restricted Stock Award will vest as to 1/3rd of the shares on each anniversary of the date of grant.

    Non-employee directors will no longer receive an Annual Option Grant.

    The Annual Restricted Stock Grant will be valued at $95,000 as of the date of grant. The Annual Restricted Stock Grant is granted at the time of the annual meeting of stockholders following the first anniversary of the Initial Option Grant and each year thereafter.

    The Chairperson of the Audit Committee will continue to be granted a restricted stock grant valued at $40,000 as of the date of grant. Such grant will vest in full at the time of the next year's annual meeting of stockholders, so long as the director continues to serve in such capacity.

2003 Equity Incentive Plan

        In April 2003, Omnicell's Board of Directors adopted the 2003 Equity Incentive Plan (the "2003 Plan"). A total of 500,000 shares of common stock were initially reserved for issuance under the 2003 Plan and Omnicell currently has options outstanding to purchase 359,160 shares under the 2003 Plan. No shares remain available for issuance under the 2003 Plan and no further awards will be granted pursuant to the 2003 Plan. The 2003 Plan provided for the issuance of non-qualified options, stock bonuses and rights to acquire restricted stock to our employees, directors and consultants. Options granted under the 2003 Plan must have an exercise price of not less than 70% of the fair market value of the stock on the date of grant and generally become exercisable over periods of up to four years, generally with one-fourth of the shares vesting one year from the vesting commencement date with respect to initial grants, and the remaining shares vesting in 36 equal monthly installments thereafter. Options under the 2003 Plan generally expire ten years from the date of grant.

        If Omnicell sells, leases or disposes of all or substantially all of its assets, or is acquired pursuant to a merger or consolidation, then the surviving entity may assume or substitute all outstanding awards under the 2003 Plan. If the surviving entity does not assume or substitute these awards, then generally the vesting and exercisability of the stock awards will accelerate.

CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS

Related Party Transaction Practices

        Our executive officers and directors are only permitted to enter into a material transaction or agreement with the Company with the prior consent of the Corporate Governance Committee of the Board of Directors. In approving or rejecting the proposed transaction or agreement, the Corporate Governance Committee considers the relevant facts and circumstances available, including, but not limited to the risks, the costs and the benefits to Omnicell, the terms of the transaction or agreement, the availability of other sources for comparable services or products, and, if applicable, the impact on a director's independence. The Corporate Governance Committee approves only those transactions or agreements that, in light of known circumstances, are in, or are not inconsistent with, our best interests, as the Committee determines in the good faith exercise of its discretion. The Corporate Governance Committee has adopted a written Related-Person Transaction Policy that can be found in the "Corporate Governance" section on Omnicell's corporate website at www.omnicell.com , under "Investor Relations."

        We have entered into indemnity agreements with its executive officers and directors which provide, among other things, that the Company will indemnify such officer or director, under the circumstances and to the extent provided for therein, for expenses, damages, judgments, fines and settlements he or she may be required to pay in actions or proceedings which he or she is or may be made a party by reason of his or her position as a director, officer or other agent of Omnicell, and otherwise to the fullest extent permitted under Delaware law and our Bylaws. Other than with respect to the entry into indemnity agreements and compensation related arrangements, there have been no transactions since January 1, 2009, and there are no currently proposed transactions, in which Omnicell was or is a participant and the amount involved exceeds $120,000, in which any related person had or will have a direct or indirect material interest.


HOUSEHOLDING OF PROXY MATERIALS

        The SEC has adopted rules that permit companies and intermediaries (e.g., brokers) to satisfy the delivery requirements for stockholder meeting materials with respect to two or more stockholders sharing the same address by delivering a single set of stockholder meeting materials addressed to those stockholders. This process, which is commonly referred to as "householding," potentially means extra convenience for stockholders and cost savings for companies.

        This year, a number of brokers with account holders who are Omnicell stockholders will be "householding" our proxy materials. A single set of Special Meeting materials will be delivered to multiple stockholders sharing an address unless contrary instructions have been received from the affected stockholders. Once you have received notice from your broker that they will be "householding" communications to your address, "householding" will continue until you are notified otherwise or until you revoke your consent. If, at any time, you no longer wish to participate in "householding" and would prefer to receive a separate set of Special Meeting materials, please (1) notify your broker, (2) direct your written request to Investor Relations, Omnicell, Inc., 1201 Charleston Road, Mountain View, California 94043 or (3) contact Omnicell's Investor Relations department at (650) 251-6437. Stockholders who currently receive multiple copies of the Special Meeting materials at their addresses and would like to request "householding" of their communications should contact their brokers.

        The Board of Directors knows of no other matters that will be presented for consideration at the Special Meeting of Stockholders. If any other matters are properly brought before the meeting, it is the intention of the persons named in the accompanying proxy to vote on such matters in accordance with their best judgment.

Amended by the Board of Directors: November 17, 2010
Approved by the Stockholders:                    , 2010
Termination Date: March 4, 2019

1.      GENERAL.

         (a)    Successor to and Continuation of Prior Plans.     The Plan is intended as the successor to and continuation of the Omnicell, Inc. 1999 Equity Incentive Plan, the 2003 Equity Incentive Plan and the 2004 Equity Incentive Plan (together, the " Prior Plans "). On and after the Effective Date, no additional stock awards shall be granted under the Prior Plans. All outstanding stock awards granted under the Prior Plans shall remain subject to the terms of the Prior Plans; provided, however , that after December 31, 2008, any shares subject to outstanding stock awards granted under the Prior Plans that expire or terminate for any reason prior to exercise or settlement or are forfeited because of the failure to meet a contingency or condition required to vest such shares (the " Returning Shares ") shall become available for issuance pursuant to Awards granted hereunder. All Awards granted on or after the Effective Date of this Plan shall be subject to the terms of this Plan.

         (b)    Eligible Award Recipients.     The persons eligible to receive Awards are Employees, Directors and Consultants.

         (c)    Available Awards.     The Plan provides for the grant of the following Awards: (i) Incentive Stock Options, (ii) Nonstatutory Stock Options, (iii) Stock Appreciation Rights, (iv) Restricted Stock Awards, (v) Restricted Stock Unit Awards, (vi) Performance Stock Awards, (vii) Performance Cash Awards, and (viii) Other Stock Awards.

         (d)    Purpose.     The Company, by means of the Plan, seeks to secure and retain the services of the group of persons eligible to receive Awards as set forth in Section 1(b), to provide incentives for such persons to exert maximum efforts for the success of the Company and any Affiliate and to provide a means by which such eligible recipients may be given an opportunity to benefit from increases in value of the Common Stock through the granting of Stock Awards.

2.      ADMINISTRATION.

         (a)    Administration by Board.     The Board shall administer the Plan unless and until the Board delegates administration of the Plan to a Committee or Committees, as provided in Section 2(c).

         (b)    Powers of Board.     The Board shall have the power, subject to, and within the limitations of, the express provisions of the Plan:

A-1


A-2


         (c)    Delegation to Committee.     

         (d)    Effect of Board's Decision.     All determinations, interpretations and constructions made by the Board in good faith shall not be subject to review by any person and shall be final, binding and conclusive on all persons.

         (e)    Cancellation and Re-Grant of Stock Awards.     Neither the Board nor any Committee shall have the authority to: (i) reduce the exercise price of any outstanding Options or Stock Appreciation Rights under the Plan, or (ii) cancel any outstanding Options or Stock Appreciation Rights that have an exercise price or strike price greater than the current Fair Market Value of the Common Stock in exchange for cash or other Stock Awards under the Plan, unless the stockholders of the Company have approved such an action within twelve (12) months prior to such an event.

3.      SHARES SUBJECT TO THE PLAN.

         (a)    Share Reserve.     Subject to Section 9(a) relating to Capitalization Adjustments, the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock that may be issued pursuant to Stock Awards from and after the Effective Date shall not exceed 4,700,000 shares (which consists of (i) 2,100,000 shares approved by the stockholders on May 19, 2009 and (ii) 2,600,000 shares approved by stockholders on December 16, 2010) plus the Returning Shares, if any, as such shares become available from time to time less one (1) share for each share of stock issued pursuant to an option or stock appreciation right granted after December 31, 2008 under the Prior Plans with respect to which the strike price is at least one hundred percent (100%) of the Fair Market Value of the underlying Common Stock on the date of grant and 1.4 shares for each share of stock issued pursuant to an award other than an option or stock appreciation right granted after December 31, 2008 under the Prior Plans (the " Share Reserve "). For clarity, the Share Reserve in this Section 3(a) is a limitation in the number of shares of the Common Stock that may be issued pursuant to the Plan and does not limit the granting of Stock Awards except as provided in Section 7(a). Shares may be issued in connection with a merger or acquisition as permitted by NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 5635(c) or, if applicable, NYSE Listed Company Manual Section 303A.08, or AMEX Company Guide Section 711 or other applicable rule, and such issuance shall not reduce the number of shares available for issuance under the Plan. Furthermore, if a Stock Award or any portion thereof (i) expires or otherwise terminates without all of the shares covered by such Stock Award have been issued or (ii) is settled in cash ( i.e. , the Participant receives cash rather than stock), such expiration, termination or settlement shall not reduce (or otherwise offset) the number of shares of Common Stock that may be available for issuance under the Plan.

         (b)    Subject to subsection 3(c), the number of shares available for issuance under the Plan shall be reduced by: (i) one (1) share for each share of stock issued pursuant to (A) an Option granted under Section 5, or (B) a Stock Appreciation Right granted under Section 5 with respect to which the strike

A-3



price is at least one hundred percent (100%) of the Fair Market Value of the underlying Common Stock on the date of grant; (ii) prior to October 1, 2010, 1.4 shares for each share of Common Stock issued pursuant to a Restricted Stock Award, Restricted Stock Unit Award, Performance Stock Award or Other Stock Award; and (iii) on or after October 1, 2010, 1.8 shares for each share of Common Stock issued pursuant to a Restricted Stock Award, Restricted Stock Unit Award, Performance Stock Award or Other Stock Award.

         (c)    Reversion of Shares to the Share Reserve.     

         (d)    Incentive Stock Option Limit.     Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 3, subject to the provisions of Section 9(a) relating to Capitalization Adjustments the aggregate maximum number of shares of Common Stock that may be issued pursuant to the exercise of Incentive Stock Options shall be the number of shares of Common Stock in the Share Reserve.

         (e)    Source of Shares.     The stock issuable under the Plan shall be shares of authorized but unissued or reacquired Common Stock, including shares repurchased by the Company on the open market or otherwise.

A-4


4.      ELIGIBILITY.

         (a)    Eligibility for Specific Stock Awards.     Incentive Stock Options may be granted only to employees of the Company or a "parent corporation" or "subsidiary corporation" thereof (as such terms are defined in Sections 424(e) and (f) of the Code). Stock Awards other than Incentive Stock Options may be granted to Employees, Directors and Consultants; provided, however , Nonstatutory Stock Options and SARs may not be granted to Employees, Directors, and Consultants who are providing Continuous Services only to any "parent" of the Company, as such term is defined in Rule 405 promulgated under the Securities Act, unless such Stock Awards comply with the distribution requirements of Section 409A of the Code.

         (b)    Ten Percent Stockholders.     A Ten Percent Stockholder shall not be granted an Incentive Stock Option unless the exercise price of such Option is at least one hundred ten percent (110%) of the Fair Market Value on the date of grant and the Option is not exercisable after the expiration of five (5) years from the date of grant.

         (c)    Section 162(m) Limitation on Annual Grants.     Subject to the provisions of Section 9(a) relating to Capitalization Adjustments, at such time as the Company may be subject to the applicable provisions of Section 162(m) of the Code, no Participant shall be eligible to be granted during any calendar year Options, Stock Appreciation Rights and Other Stock Awards whose value is determined by reference to an increase over an exercise or strike price of at least one hundred percent (100%) of the Fair Market Value on the date the Stock Award is granted covering more than 1,500,000 shares of Common Stock.

5.      PROVISIONS RELATING TO OPTIONS AND STOCK APPRECIATION RIGHTS.

        Each Option or SAR shall be in such form and shall contain such terms and conditions as the Board shall deem appropriate. All Options shall be separately designated Incentive Stock Options or Nonstatutory Stock Options at the time of grant, and, if certificates are issued, a separate certificate or certificates shall be issued for shares of Common Stock purchased on exercise of each type of Option. If an Option is not specifically designated as an Incentive Stock Option, then the Option shall be a Nonstatutory Stock Option. The provisions of separate Options or SARs need not be identical; provided, however , that each Option Agreement or Stock Appreciation Right Agreement shall conform to (through incorporation of provisions hereof by reference in the applicable Award Agreement or otherwise) the substance of each of the following provisions:

         (a)    Term.     Subject to the provisions of Section 4(b) regarding Ten Percent Stockholders, no Option or SAR shall be exercisable after the expiration of ten (10) years from the date of its grant or such shorter period specified in the Award Agreement.

         (b)    Exercise Price.     Subject to the provisions of Section 4(b) regarding Ten Percent Stockholders, the exercise price (or strike price) of each Option or SAR shall be not less than one hundred percent (100%) of the Fair Market Value of the Common Stock subject to the Option or SAR on the date the Option or SAR is granted. Notwithstanding the foregoing, an Option or SAR may be granted with an exercise price (or strike price) lower than one hundred percent (100%) of the Fair Market Value of the Common Stock subject to the Option or SAR if such Option or SAR is granted pursuant to an assumption of or substitution for another option or stock appreciation right pursuant to a Corporate Transaction and in a manner consistent with the provisions of Sections 409A and 424(a) of the Code (whether or not such awards are Incentive Stock Options). Each SAR will be denominated in shares of Common Stock equivalents.

         (c)    Purchase Price for Options.     The purchase price of Common Stock acquired pursuant to the exercise of an Option shall be paid, to the extent permitted by applicable law and as determined by the Board in its sole discretion, by any combination of the methods of payment set forth below. The Board

A-5



shall have the authority to grant Options that do not permit all of the following methods of payment (or otherwise restrict the ability to use certain methods) and to grant Options that require the consent of the Company to utilize a particular method of payment. The permitted methods of payment are as follows:

         (d)    Exercise and Payment of a SAR.     To exercise any outstanding Stock Appreciation Right, the Participant must provide written notice of exercise to the Company in compliance with the provisions of the Stock Appreciation Right Agreement evidencing such Stock Appreciation Right. The appreciation distribution payable on the exercise of a Stock Appreciation Right will be not greater than an amount equal to the excess of (A) the aggregate Fair Market Value (on the date of the exercise of the Stock Appreciation Right) of a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the number of Common Stock equivalents in which the Participant is vested under such Stock Appreciation Right, and with respect to which the Participant is exercising the Stock Appreciation Right on such date, over (B) the strike price that will be determined by the Board at the time of grant of the Stock Appreciation Right. The appreciation distribution in respect to a Stock Appreciation Right may be paid in Common Stock, in cash, in any combination of the two or in any other form of consideration, as determined by the Board and contained in the Stock Appreciation Right Agreement evidencing such Stock Appreciation Right.

         (e)    Transferability of Options and SARs.     The Board may, in its sole discretion, impose such limitations on the transferability of Options and SARs as the Board shall determine. In the absence of such a determination by the Board to the contrary, the following restrictions on the transferability of Options and SARs shall apply:

A-6


         (f)    Vesting Generally.     The total number of shares of Common Stock subject to an Option or SAR may vest and therefore become exercisable in periodic installments that may or may not be equal. The Option or SAR may be subject to such other terms and conditions on the time or times when it may or may not be exercised (which may be based on the satisfaction of Performance Goals or other criteria) as the Board may deem appropriate. The vesting provisions of individual Options or SARs may vary. The provisions of this Section 5(f) are subject to any Option or SAR provisions governing the minimum number of shares of Common Stock as to which an Option or SAR may be exercised.

         (g)    Termination of Continuous Service.     Except as otherwise provided in the applicable Award Agreement or other agreement between the Participant and the Company, in the event that a Participant's Continuous Service terminates (other than for Cause or upon the Participant's death or Disability), the Participant may exercise his or her Option or SAR (to the extent that the Participant was entitled to exercise such Award as of the date of termination of Continuous Service) but only within such period of time ending on the earlier of (i) the date three (3) months following the termination of the Participant's Continuous Service (or such longer or shorter period specified in the applicable Award Agreement), or (ii) the expiration of the term of the Option or SAR as set forth in the Award Agreement. If, after termination of Continuous Service, the Participant does not exercise his or her Option or SAR within the time specified herein or in the Award Agreement (as applicable), the Option or SAR shall terminate.

         (h)    Extension of Termination Date.     In the event that the exercise of an Option or SAR following the termination of the Participant's Continuous Service (other than for Cause or upon the Participant's death or Disability) would be prohibited at any time solely because the issuance of shares of Common Stock would violate the registration requirements under the Securities Act, then the Option or SAR shall terminate on the earlier of (i) the expiration of a period of three (3) months after the termination of the Participant's Continuous Service during which the exercise of the Option or SAR would not be in violation of such registration requirements, or (ii) the expiration of the term of the Option or SAR as set forth in the applicable Award Agreement. In addition, unless otherwise provided in a Participant's Award Agreement, if the sale of any Common Stock received upon exercise of an Option or SAR following the termination of the Participant's Continuous Service (other than for Cause) would violate the Company's insider trading policy, then the Option or SAR shall terminate on the earlier of (i) the expiration of a period equal to the applicable post-termination exercise period after the termination of the Participant's Continuous Service during which the exercise of the Option or SAR would not be in violation of the Company's insider trading policy, or (ii) the expiration of the term of the Option or SAR as set forth in the applicable Award Agreement.

         (i)    Disability of Participant.     Except as otherwise provided in the applicable Award Agreement or other agreement between the Participant and the Company, in the event that a Participant's Continuous Service terminates as a result of the Participant's Disability, the Participant may exercise his

A-7



or her Option or SAR (to the extent that the Participant was entitled to exercise such Option or SAR as of the date of termination of Continuous Service), but only within such period of time ending on the earlier of (i) the date twelve (12) months following such termination of Continuous Service (or such longer or shorter period specified in the Award Agreement), or (ii) the expiration of the term of the Option or SAR as set forth in the Award Agreement. If, after termination of Continuous Service, the Participant does not exercise his or her Option or SAR within the time specified herein or in the Award Agreement (as applicable), the Option or SAR (as applicable) shall terminate.

         (j)    Death of Participant.     Except as otherwise provided in the applicable Award Agreement or other agreement between the Participant and the Company, in the event that (i) a Participant's Continuous Service terminates as a result of the Participant's death, or (ii) the Participant dies within the period (if any) specified in the Award Agreement after the termination of the Participant's Continuous Service for a reason other than death, then the Option or SAR may be exercised (to the extent the Participant was entitled to exercise such Option or SAR as of the date of death) by the Participant's estate, by a person who acquired the right to exercise the Option or SAR by bequest or inheritance or by a person designated to exercise the Option or SAR upon the Participant's death, but only within the period ending on the earlier of (i) the date eighteen (18) months following the date of death (or such longer or shorter period specified in the Award Agreement), or (ii) the expiration of the term of such Option or SAR as set forth in the Award Agreement. If, after the Participant's death, the Option or SAR is not exercised within the time specified herein or in the Award Agreement (as applicable), the Option or SAR shall terminate.

         (k)    Termination for Cause.     Except as explicitly provided otherwise in a Participant's Award Agreement, if a Participant's Continuous Service is terminated for Cause, the Option or SAR shall terminate upon the date on which the event giving rise to the termination occurred, and the Participant shall be prohibited from exercising his or her Option or SAR from and after the time of such termination of Continuous Service.

         (l)    Non-Exempt Employees.     No Option or SAR granted to an Employee who is a non-exempt employee for purposes of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, as amended shall be first exercisable for any shares of Common Stock until at least six months following the date of grant of the Option or SAR. Notwithstanding the foregoing, consistent with the provisions of the Worker Economic Opportunity Act, (i) in the event of the Participant's death or Disability, (ii) upon a Corporate Transaction in which such Option or SAR is not assumed, continued, or substituted, (iii) upon a Change in Control, or (iv) upon the Participant's retirement (as such term may be defined in the Participant's Award Agreement or in another applicable agreement or in accordance with the Company's then current employment policies and guidelines) any such vested Options and SARs may be exercised earlier than six months following the date of grant. The foregoing provision is intended to operate so that any income derived by a non-exempt employee in connection with the exercise or vesting of an Option or SAR will be exempt from his or her regular rate of pay.

6.      PROVISIONS OF STOCK AWARDS OTHER THAN OPTIONS AND SARS.
