(e) Amended and Restated Senior Management Agreement for James K. Rojas
     On March 2, 2010, Huron Consulting Group Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Amended and Restated Senior Management Agreement, effective as of October 1, 2009, with James K. Rojas, Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer of the Company (the “Rojas Agreement”). As described in more detail below, the Rojas Agreement reflects certain changes commensurate with Mr. Rojas’s appointment as Chief Financial Officer of the Company and, among other changes, (i) provides for pro rata vesting of outstanding equity awards granted prior to 2010 upon Mr. Rojas’s termination without Cause (as defined in the Rojas Agreement) or resignation for Good Reason (as defined in the Rojas Agreement and summarized below) and (ii) increases the amount that Mr. Rojas is entitled to be paid upon his termination without Cause following a Change of Control (as defined in the Rojas Agreement) or resignation for CoC Good Reason (as defined in the Rojas Agreement and summarized below). The Rojas Agreement supersedes and replaces the Senior Management Agreement previously entered into by the Company and Mr. Rojas. Set forth below is a brief description of the material terms of the Rojas Agreement.
     Term of the Rojas Agreement: The Rojas Agreement covers a term beginning on October 1, 2009, and continuing for one year from that date. Following the expiration of that initial one-year term, the Rojas Agreement will be automatically renewed every 12 months, unless Mr. Rojas or the Company provides 60 days notice to the other that such automatic renewal shall cease. The Rojas Agreement may be earlier terminated by Mr. Rojas or the Company pursuant to its terms.
     Base Salary: The Rojas Agreement entitles Mr. Rojas to an annual base salary. The amount of such base salary is not specified in the Rojas Agreement. The Chief Executive Officer of the Company will review Mr. Rojas’s compensation annually, based on his performance and the Company’s other compensation policies. Mr. Rojas’s base salary may not be reduced without his consent unless such reduction is part of a comparable overall reduction for members of senior management of the Company.
     Annual Bonus: Each calendar year Mr. Rojas will be eligible for an annual bonus in an amount determined by the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Compensation Committee”) based on the Company’s and Mr. Rojas’s performance and the Company’s compensation policies.
     Equity Awards: Mr. Rojas will generally be eligible to participate in the Company’s equity plans, with the amount and terms of any equity awards being in the sole discretion of the Compensation Committee based on the Company’s and Mr. Rojas’s performance and the Company’s compensation policies.
     Other Benefits: Mr. Rojas will be eligible to participate in the Company’s various health and welfare benefit plans for its similarly-situated key management employees.
     Post-Termination Payments: If Mr. Rojas’s employment is terminated by the Company without Cause or he resigns for Good Reason, in either case, Mr. Rojas will be entitled to: (i) severance pay in an amount equal to six months base salary (“Severance Pay”), (ii) pro rata vesting of any outstanding equity awards granted to Mr. Rojas prior to 2010 and (iii) continuation of medical benefits for six months upon the same terms as exist from time to time for active similarly-situated executives of the Company. The receipt of such benefits is conditioned upon Mr. Rojas’s compliance with the covenants, representations, warranties and agreements contained in the Rojas Agreement, as well as the execution and acceptance of the terms and conditions of a general release in the standard form used by the Company.
     “Good Reason” is defined in the Rojas Agreement to mean a resignation, not in connection with a Change of Control, following a change in Mr. Rojas’s primary location of employment to a location that is more than 75 miles from Chicago, Illinois.
     Change of Control: If (i) Mr. Rojas’s employment is terminated by the Company without Cause or if he resigns for a CoC Good Reason, in either case, within two years following a Change of Control or (ii) Mr. Rojas reasonably demonstrates that his termination by the Company (or an event which, had it occurred after a Change of

-1-


 

Control, would have constituted a CoC Good Reason) prior to a Change of Control was attributable to, or intended to facilitate, a Change of Control or was at the request of a third party acting to effect a Change of Control, and a Change of Control actually occurs within 12 months of such termination or resignation (each of (i) and (ii), a “Qualifying Termination”), then Mr. Rojas will be entitled to: (a) cash equal to the target amount of his annual bonus (the “Target Bonus”) for the year of termination or resignation, prorated based on the number of days employed in the year of termination or resignation, (b) cash equal to two times the sum of his annual base salary and Target Bonus, if any, for the year of termination or resignation and (c) continuation of medical benefits for two years following the date of such termination or resignation upon the same terms as exist for him immediately prior to the termination or resignation date. In addition, in the case of a Qualifying Termination that occurs prior to a Change of Control, Mr. Rojas will be provided with a cash payment equal to the difference between (i) the amount of the premium paid by him for continuation of medical benefits under COBRA between the date of the Qualifying Termination and the date of the Change of Control and (ii) the amount of the premium that Mr. Rojas would have paid for medical coverage during such period had his coverage been continued during such period upon the same terms as existed for him immediately prior to the termination or resignation date. All of Mr. Rojas’s outstanding equity grants that were awarded at or prior to the time of the Change of Control will fully vest upon the occurrence of a Qualifying Termination. The receipt of the benefits described in this paragraph is conditioned on Mr. Rojas’s compliance with the covenants, warranties, representations and agreements set forth in the Rojas Agreement, as well as his execution and acceptance of the terms and conditions of a general release in the standard form used by the Company.
     “CoC Good Reason” is defined in the Rojas Agreement to mean certain adverse changes in anticipation of, or within two years following, a Change of Control including: (a) any material breach of the Rojas Agreement by the Company, (b) any material adverse change in Mr. Rojas’s status, responsibilities or position with the Company, (c) any material reduction in his base salary or Target Bonus, other than in connection with an across-the-board reduction in base salaries applicable in like proportions to all similarly-situated executives of the Company and any direct or indirect parent of the Company, (d) assignment of duties to Mr. Rojas that are materially inconsistent with his position and the responsibilities described in the Rojas Agreement or (e) requiring Mr. Rojas to be principally based at any location that is more than 75 miles from Chicago, Illinois.
     The Rojas Agreement further provides that if any amount, right or benefit paid or payable to Mr. Rojas under the Rojas Agreement or any other plan, program or arrangement would constitute an “excess parachute payment” under Section 280G of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), subject to the excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Code, then the amount of payments payable to Mr. Rojas under the Rojas Agreement will be reduced to the extent necessary so that no portion of such payments is subject to such excise tax.
     The foregoing description of the terms of the Rojas Agreement does not purport to be a complete description of the Rojas Agreement and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the Rojas Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference into this Item 5.02.
