Employment Agreement for Donald D. Dreher. On October 1, 2006, we entered into an employment agreement with Donald D. Dreher, a Senior Vice President of Flexsteel and Chief Executive Officer and President of DMI Furniture, Inc. and on June 27, 2008, we entered into an amendment to the employment agreement extending the term of the agreement from December 31, 2009 to September 30, 2012, unless terminated prior to that time as provided in the employment agreement. We have the right to terminate the employment agreement upon 30 days advance notice without cause and can terminate the employment agreement for cause (as defined in the employment agreement) upon 120 days advance notice. Under the terms of the employment agreement, Mr. Dreher is entitled to a base annual salary of $379,200 and an annual bonus, subject to achieving annual performance levels established by our Board, of not less than $50,000, unless our subsidiary, DMI Furniture, Inc., reports a financial pre-tax loss (before this bonus) in which case no bonus shall be paid. Mr. Dreher’s employment agreement also provides that we provide him with life insurance; health, disability and travel accident insurance consistent with DMI Furniture, Inc’s coverage; automobile allowance; reimbursement for certain medical care expenses; personal tax and financial planning expense allowance; and country club dues. If Mr. Dreher becomes disabled, his fringe benefits continue through December 31, 2009. If the employment agreement is terminated without cause prior to September 30, 2012, Mr. Dreher is entitled to payment in one lump sum of the balance of his base salary through September 30, 2012 so long as he agrees to comply with the noncompete provisions of the employment agreement. The employment agreement also contains a 24-month post-termination noncompete provision and non-solicitation and confidentiality provisions. Assuming Mr. Dreher was terminated without cause effective June 30, 2009, he would have been entitled to an estimated lump sum cash severance payment in the aggregate amount of approximately $1,232,000. If he had been terminated due to disability effective June 30, 2009, Mr. Dreher would have been entitled to the continuation of all of his fringe benefits through December 31, 2009 with an estimated present value of approximately $17,000. The foregoing amounts are estimates of the amounts that would have been paid out to Mr. Dreher upon his termination of employment. The actual amounts to be paid out can only be determined at the time Mr. Dreher in fact terminates employment with us.
