Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

 

On September 15, 2009, the Board of Directors of CBS Corporation (“CBS” or the “Company”) approved the form of an indemnification agreement for the Company’s directors and authorized the Company to enter into the agreement with each director of CBS. The agreement incorporates the indemnification rights under Article VI of the CBS Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as currently in effect, and establishes that such rights are contract rights under the agreement. The agreement provides, among other things, for (i) rights to indemnification to the fullest extent authorized by the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, and not otherwise prohibited, in connection with service as a director of CBS or, at the Company’s request, as a director of any other corporate entity or employee benefit plan (or a director’s service as an officer of any such entity), (ii) independent or disinterested determinations as to whether the standard for indemnification under the agreement has been met and (iii) additional procedural protections that will apply in the event the indemnitee makes a claim for indemnification under the agreement. The Company’s obligations under the agreement are retroactive to the date the respective indemnitee became a member of the Board of Directors. The Company may terminate the agreement at any time on or after January 1, 2015 upon not less than 365 days’ prior written notice; provided, however, that such indemnitee’s rights under the agreement shall survive the termination of the agreement with respect to any proceeding based in whole or part on any actual or alleged state of facts, occurrence, action or omission existing during the effective time of the agreement, and of any proceeding commenced by indemnitee to enforce its rights under the agreement, irrespective of when such proceeding is initiated.

 

The foregoing description of the indemnification agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Form of Director Indemnification Agreement which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10 and is incorporated herein by reference.
