Item 5.02 DEPARTURE OF DIRECTORS OR CERTAIN OFFICERS; ELECTION OF DIRECTORS; APPOINTMENT OF CERTAIN OFFICERS; COMPENSATORY ARRANGEMENTS OF CERTAIN OFFICERS
On January 30, 2007, Peter M. Dunn, Director for Alliance Financial Corporation and Alliance Bank, N.A., announced his determination not to stand for re-election and his intention to retire from the boards of both companies effective May 15, 2007, the date scheduled for the registrants annual meeting of stockholders.
On January 30, 2007, the registrant entered into Restricted Stock Agreements (Agreements) with Jack H. Webb, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, J. Daniel Mohr, Treasurer and Chief Financial Officer and John H. Watt, Jr., Executive Vice President pursuant to which they were granted 2000, 1500, and 2000 shares respectively, of the registrants common stock (collectively, the Shares), under the registrants 1998 Long Term Incentive Compensation Plan.
Subject to certain exceptions set forth in the Agreements, the Shares are generally subject to forfeiture if the recipients do not remain in the employ of the registrant for a period of seven years following the date of the Agreements (the Forfeiture Period). During the Forfeiture Period, subject to the terms of the Agreements, each recipient has all rights of a shareholder of the registrant with respect to his Shares, including the right to vote such Shares and to receive any dividends paid in respect of such Shares. In the case of Mr. Mohr and Mr. Watt, the Forfeiture Period may terminate with respect to one-half of the granted Shares following the third anniversary of the date of the Agreements if the price of the registrants common stock reaches a designated threshold. The Agreements are filed as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2, and 10.3 to this Form 8-K.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
