On February 20, 2007, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Boston Scientific Corporation (the “Company”) approved an amendment to the definition of “Change in Control” contained in the Retention Agreement between the Company and each of its executive officers to mean the consummation of a reorganization, merger, consolidation or similar arrangement involving the Company, rather than the shareholder approval of such a transaction. We intend to ask each executive officer to sign an amended Retention Agreement. A copy of the form of Retention Agreement, as amended, is filed with this report as Exhibit 10.1.
2007 Performance Incentive Plan
On February 20, 2007, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company approved an amendment to the 2007 Performance Incentive Plan, which plan is applicable to its executive officers, establishing an incentive compensation recoupment policy. In the event of a restatement of the financial statements of the Company that would reduce a previously granted award’s size or payment, the Company will seek reimbursement of the amount of the performance incentive award paid to the Company’s executive officers which is in excess of the amounts that would have been paid based on the restated financial results. A copy of the 2007 Performance Incentive Plan, as amended, is filed with this report as Exhibit 10.2.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
