Items 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On September 7, 2005, the Compensation Committee of the registrants Board of Directors approved a restricted stock award of 8,750 shares to the registrants executive vice president and chief operating officer, John P. Clancy, Jr. (the Executive). This award has been granted under the terms of a Restricted Stock Agreement between the registrant and the Executive, a copy of which is included as an exhibit to this report (the Agreement). The shares subject to the award have been issued under the registrants 2003 Stock Incentive Plan.
Among other terms, the Agreement provides as follows:
Shares vest 20% per year starting on the first anniversary of the date of the award, subject to full vesting upon the occurrence of a change in control of the registrant, the death or disability of the Executive or the registrants termination of the Executives employment without cause.
The Executive is entitled to receive dividends on, and to vote, all shares, whether or not vested, throughout the vesting period.
The Executive is required to pay to the registrant an amount equal to the fair market value of any shares that have vested within one year prior to his accepting an offer of employment with, or otherwise performing services for, any competitor of the registrant, although this payment obligation is not triggered by any accelerated vesting in connection with a change in control of the registrant and also may be waived by the Compensation Committee.
The Executive is entitled to receive as tax assistance from the registrant an additional cash amount of $87,281, which equals 35% of the fair market value of the shares as of the date of the award.
This restricted stock award was approved by the Compensation Committee as part of an overall assessment of the Executives current total compensation arrangement and is intended to reflect not only the Executives contributions to the registrants past performance, but also the additional responsibilities he has assumed for the registrants future operations since his appointment as chief operating officer on December 31, 2004.
