(e) Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
At the Annual Meeting of Shareholders of The J. M. Smucker Company (the “ Company”) held on August 18, 2010, the Company’s shareholders, upon recommendation of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “ Board”), approved The J. M. Smucker Company 2010 Equity and Incentive Compensation Plan (the “ 2010 Plan”), as more specifically described in Item 5.07 below. The Executive Compensation Committee of the Board unanimously approved and adopted the 2010 Plan on April 21, 2010, subject to the approval of the Company’s shareholders.
The 2010 Plan authorizes the granting of cash and equity-based compensation in the form of stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units, cash incentive awards, performance shares, performance units, and other awards for the purpose of providing the Company’s Directors, executive officers, other employees, and consultants incentives and rewards for performance. The Board has delegated authority to the Executive Compensation Committee of the Board to administer the 2010 Plan. Subject to adjustment as provided in the 2010 Plan, the maximum number of common shares that may be issued or transferred in connection with the awards under the 2010 Plan will not exceed the sum of 7,000,000 shares plus the number of shares available for awards under The J. M. Smucker Company 2006 Equity Compensation Plan as of the effective date of the 2010 Plan.
The foregoing is a summary of the material terms and conditions of the 2010 Plan and not a complete description of the 2010 Plan. The 2010 Plan is described in greater detail in the Company’s definitive proxy statement for the 2010 Annual Meeting of Shareholders filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 8, 2010 (the “ Proxy Statement”). The descriptions of the 2010 Plan contained herein and in the Proxy Statement are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the 2010 Plan attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1, which is incorporated herein by reference.
