Item 5.02 (e)  Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers


The information provided under Item 1.02 above is incorporated herein by reference.  


On December 18, 2007, General Cable’s Board of Directors on recommendation of the Board’s Compensation Committee adopted the General Cable Corporation Executive Officer Severance Benefit Plan effective January 1, 2008 (“Severance Plan”).  The Severance Plan generally covers employees of General Cable Corporation with the position of Executive Vice President or above and any person who is a named executive officer under the proxy regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Participants will include Mr. Kenny, Mr. Siverd, Mr. Robinson and other U.S.-based Executive Vice Presidents.  The Severance Plan provides for cash severance and other benefits in case of a defined involuntary termination or a change-in-control as set forth in the Severance Plan document.  Mr. Kenny’s and Mr. Siverd’s potential benefits under the Severance Plan reflect a reduction from the comparable benefits provided in their employment and change-in-control agreements, which they are voluntarily agreeing to terminate.  In addition, the Severance Plan may generally be amended or terminated at any time by General Cable with the approval of the Board’s Compensation Committee.

 

This summary of the material terms of the Severance Plan is qualified in its entirety by the terms of the Severance Plan, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.4 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
