Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
On May 21, 2012, the Human Resources Committee of our Board of Directors granted performance-vested stock options and performance-vested restricted stock units (RSUs) to the named executive officers listed below as follows:
The foregoing grants were made under our 2004 Equity Compensation Plan. The stock options have an exercise price of $18.48 per share and a seven-year term. Vesting and exercisability are contingent upon the satisfaction of the performance- and service-based objectives described below. Each RSU constitutes a phantom right and will automatically be redeemed for one share of CSS common stock on the fourth anniversary of the grant date, contingent upon satisfaction of the performance- and service-based objectives described below.
The stock options and RSUs will not vest unless a performance objective is satisfied within the four-year period ending on the fourth anniversary of the grant date (the Performance Period). In order for the performance objective to be satisfied, the Company must attain total shareholder return (TSR) of at least 30% during the Performance Period. TSR is measured by stock price performance and dividend accumulation and reinvestment. Satisfaction of the performance objective will be determined by comparing (a) the average closing price for a share of the Companys common stock (as adjusted to reflect reinvestment of dividends paid during the Performance Period) over a period of 60 consecutive trading days during the Performance Period to (b) $18.48 per share, the closing price per share on May 18, 2012 (the last trading day prior to the grant date).
If the performance objective described above shall not have been satisfied by the fourth anniversary of the grant date, then the stock options and RSUs will not vest, and the same will expire on the fourth anniversary of the grant date. Otherwise, vesting will depend on the period in which the performance objective shall have been satisfied, as reflected below:
A service-based vesting condition is also applicable to the foregoing stock options and RSUs. In order for the service-based vesting condition to be satisfied, the executive must remain in the employment of the Company or an applicable subsidiary of the Company on the applicable vesting date. Stock options become exercisable from and after the date on which the same vest. RSUs, to the extent that the same shall have vested, will be redeemed automatically for shares of CSS common stock on the fourth anniversary of the grant date.
On May 22, 2012, the employment agreement (Agreement) between our C.R. Gibson, LLC (C.R. Gibson) business and its president, Laurie F. Gilner, was amended. The amendment extends the term of the Agreement by two years, until September 6, 2015, sets forth the severance benefit that will be applicable in the event of termination of Ms. Gilners employment without cause during the two-year period ending September 6, 2015, and provides that C.R. Gibson will reimburse Ms. Gilner an additional amount for relocation expenses. The foregoing description of the amendment is qualified in its in entirety by the provisions of such amendment, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1.
