(e) On June 30, 2014, the Company’s Compensation Committee approved alternate forms of equity award agreements for participants as determined or designated by the Compensation Committee from time to time. The alternate forms of equity award agreements modify the previously disclosed forms of the Company’s equity award agreements for market stock units, performance share units, and restricted share units awarded pursuant to the Company’s 2013 Long Term Incentive Plan. The alternate forms of equity award agreements are being utilized by the Committee for the fiscal year 2015 annual long term incentive compensation for William C. Cobb, the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
Under the alternate forms of equity award agreements, a participant’s voluntary retirement after reaching age 60 will not result in the forfeiture of any equity awards outstanding for more than one year prior to such retirement; rather, the equity awards will continue to vest on the stated vesting dates set forth in the applicable award agreement and with performance adjustments (if any) made under such agreement as if the participant remained employed through such stated vesting dates. Additionally, the covenant against solicitation of employees will be increased from one year following the participant’s last day of employment to two years following the participant’s last day of employment.
The other material terms of the forms of equity award agreements remain unchanged in the alternate forms. A summary of the material terms of the previously adopted forms of equity award agreements is included in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 21, 2013. The foregoing summary of the alternate forms of equity award agreements is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the alternate forms, copies of which are filed as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2, and 10.3 hereto, and incorporated herein by reference.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
